Chinese Embassy in Gambia celebrates China’s 68th anniversary

first_imgThe Chinese Embassy in Gambia, based in the west African country’s capital Banjul, held a reception to celebrate the 68th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China here on Friday.Chinese Ambassador Zhang Jiming said the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1 in 1949 was historic for China and the world.“From 2013 to 2016, China topped the world with an annual GDP growth at 7.2 percent and contributed more than 30 percent to the growth of the world economy,” Zhang said.“Over 13 million new urban jobs are being created every year and the surveyed urban unemployment rate has been kept at around 5 percent,” he added.Zhang said the past five years showed that over 55 million Chinese have been lifted out of poverty, while over 700 million have rid themselves of poverty in the past four decades.Gambian Justice Minister Aboubacarr Tambadou said Gambia has always welcomed China as a significant partner.“We will continue to support the one-China policy,” Tambadou said.Gambia and China resumed bilateral relations in 2016 after they had been severed for some 20 years.last_img read more

France’s Laurent scores first ever World Cup goal

first_imgWhen France faced off against Mexico, and the U.S. met Belgium in matches at different venues in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo, few people could imagine what had been unleashed on the world. A quarter of a century or so after the idea of a global footballing tournament was first mooted, 13 teams, including the host, gathered in Uruguay — many European countries, including Italy and Spain, opted against making the multi-week boat trip, while the four British associations had withdrawn from FIFA. Uruguay, which won the gold medal in the 1924 and 1928 Olympic Games, was given the right to host the competition for the Jules Rimet Trophy, the World Cup’s original name, and termed in honor of the then FIFA president who had done so much to make the tournament a reality. For the record, France beat Mexico 4-1, while the United States defeated Belgium 3-0. France’s Lucien Laurent scored the first goal in World Cup finals history. On July 30, Uruguay became the first winner of the World Cup when it beat Argentina 4-2 at Centenario Stadium.last_img read more

Principe left lasting legacy as longtime coach at Keyport

first_imgSal Principe can’t help feeling nostalgic. It’s his nature, and many people who share his memories as a successful longtime coach for two generations at Keyport High School keep in touch with him, even though he lives thousands of miles away these days in Bradenton, Florida, since retiring after the 2013-14 school year.They keep in touch through Facebook, emails, phone calls, and some even visit him in Florida like Deboney Braithwaite, a math teacher at Keyport, where she played field hockey as a goalie in one of the early seasons for Principe (Principe coached from 1992 until his retirement), and she later became an assistant coach in the sport. Valerie Rogers is preparing for her second season as Keyport field hockey head coach.“It was like a second family with the field hockey girls,” Principe said, as many former players stay in touch. “The last three years were the best seasons, going to the state finals one year.”Sami Nellis, one of those former players, an underclassman when Principe coached at Keyport, is starting her freshman year at Kean University.Braithwaite followed the lead of Principe on the field and in the classroom, where he taught as an algebra and an advanced placement calculus teacher at Keyport with as much pride as his coaching triumphs.“She’s like a second daughter,” Principe said about Braithwaite. He got the nickname “Math Prince,” which remains part of his email address, in Keyport’s classrooms, and he still tutors math in person and on Skype.Principe’s coaching résumé extends far beyond field hockey, as he also was head coach of the baseball team for 17 seasons through 2003 and was a girls basketball assistant for 10 years through the 1990s before switching winter sports to coaching Keyport’s girls and boys teams in bowling, which he did for 15 years until his retirement. He still loves to bowl.His girls bowling team was a perennial division champion in the Shore Conference and won an NJSIAA Group II title. The baseball team won a group title and two state section titles — the same as girls basketball during Principe’s tenure as assistant. Braithwaite also played basketball while Principe was an assistant.Principe got the idea to retire to Florida when visiting Chris Connelly, former golf and softball coach at Keyport who had moved to Clearwater, Florida, when he retired from coaching and teaching. A Brooklyn, New York, native residing in Brick Township, Principe said he relocated partly because of expensive taxes as a homeowner as well as the idyllic setting of the Sunshine State.He also umpired softball games for many years while living in New Jersey and has only one regret: “There’s not much field hockey here in Florida,” he said. “Another of my former players who moved to Florida and came to visit me is starting a field hockey travel team.”Principe said her venture seems to be catching on.
