Players committed to fitness during lockdown will shine in 2020 Hero CPL

first_imgBy Clifton RossWITH the 2020 edition of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) set to bowl off in a few weeks, all eyes will be fixed on the level of cricket which will be on display.Dubbed as one of the more exciting T20 tournaments in the cricketing world, COVID-19 has possibly thrown a wrench into the wheels by robbing franchises of crucial encampment time which plays the biggest role in players and coaches gelling ahead of the tournament.The time spent home will be beneficial for the cricketers who have been tasked with staying in peak physical condition despite being away from team training and gym sessions for about 5 months; similar to how the National Basketball Association (NBA) managed to control the health and safety of its players and teams which are currently playing in the Disney Land ‘Bubble’.Cricketers will now re-enter the world of live action and likely put on one of the best tournaments in recent times, thanks mainly to the prolonged rest and recovery from any niggles they may have picked up prior to the pandemic.One downside is that teams have not been able to commence encampment, which, in the past, usually bowls off at least one month prior to the start of the season.This season is expected to get underway from August 18, which is roughly 2 weeks and a few days away. But with the covid-19 rates still spiking globally, regionally and here in Guyana, it remains uncertain how much time will be granted for teams to gel and have a bit of time to train as a unit.A few of the local Guyana Amazon Warriors stars have been keeping themselves in shape thanks to the Cricket Guyana Inc. (CGI) daily virtual training sessions. However, isolated workouts, hitting the weights at home or any form of improvised training can’t compensate for the real-time feeling of training with teammates and coaches.Due to the current circumstances, it’s arguable that players can come out fitter than ever or hungrier than ever after being away from the field for a lengthy stretch. CPL, over the years, has evolved from more than a bunch of players representing a specific franchise to somewhat of a family-like atmosphere.Much of that credit could be given to the early encampment which would give the players ample time to gel and commence work on their game plans, while, most importantly, having a bird’s eye view of players progress, fitness-wise, etc.A number of top regional stars are renowned for their dedication to working out regardless of a pandemic. Veteran cricketers like Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard and others have been known to keep themselves in shape throughout the year.Some of the current generation of players, like Guyanese Shimron Hetymer, Romario Shepherd, Sherfane Rutherford and other high-profile Warriors’ players, are products of the CGI academy system.Although the outbreak inevitably resulted in a nationwide lockdown, by tradition, the Guyana Jaguars have been the fittest Regional 4-Day team in the last 6 years, resulting in their 5 consecutive title wins which sadly ended this year.A fews months off the training schedule will not affect the hardened Jags players, both in the academy and national setup, after years of being exposed to training almost daily since 2014; mainly due to the team’s strict policies on training and keeping fit.With Guyana’s cricket academy system being hailed as the best in the Caribbean by Cricket West Indies (CWI), it’s safe to say that players from Guyana who will be playing in this year’s CPL will have a clear advantage over the rest of players thanks to them being products of the academy.Such facts could be confirmed once the tournament is successfully hosted in a few weeks when cricketers from Guyana will be tasked with living up to their reputation of being match-ready all year round.last_img read more

From the classroom to the car, minor leaguers forced to make due during offseason

first_img“Well, no, not really. I make enough money doing this so I can afford to do the baseball stuff.”MORE: Top 79 free agentsLike many other minor leaguers, Sneed settles for an offseason job to have a supplemental income because of low salaries before reaching the big leagues. Even for those who reach Triple-A, the average annual salary is less than $11,000, which diminishes after taxes and is only paid during the season.Federal minimum is wage is $7.25, which totals $15,080 per year with a 40-hour work week.Sneed, who works as a substitute teacher in the Kenai, Alaska Peninsula school district and as a tutor at Alaska Christian College, is content during offseasons because of the location and flexibility of the jobs.“I love it, (Alaskans are) my kind of people,” Sneed said. “You can either get a minimum-wage job where you’re pretty much on a set schedule versus this, where you can a little bit make your own schedule and it just pays a little bit better. It pays about twice as much as what we make during the season.”Despite the need to find a side job to support himself in the offseason, “Mr. Sneeze” — as he’s affectionately called by some kindergarten students — is grateful that his primary role involves playing a kid’s game for a living.“It gives you a perspective of I could be coming and being a teacher every single day or I could be doing this or that,” Sneed said. “I know people who help build pools or do carpentry or build cabins, stuff like that. At the end of the day, what would you rather do: Play baseball or do this? It gives you a little bit of drive to keep going and really work hard at it and try to get to the big leagues.”Still, the struggle of being a minor leaguer can force those who aspire to play at the likes of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field into some tough situations in order for the dream to become a reality.“It’s tough to make money because you don’t make money in the minor leagues and it’s even worse at the lower levels. In A ball you’re probably making a little over $1,000 a month, so down there it’s even worse,” said Kyle Wren, an outfielder in the Reds organization, who worked at his dad’s carwash over multiple offseasons. “You hear about guys living six people in a two-bedroom place. It’s tough.”Wren, who played in Triple A last season for the Brewers and Red Sox, is in a more comfortable situation since signing a minor league free-agent deal, but had to be cautious in the first six years of his career to not bleed out his signing bonus, which was part of the reason he opted to work in the offseason.MORE: Blue Jays invite Vlad Jr. to Spring TrainingAnother minor leaguer, Dusty Isaacs, chooses to drive for Uber in the non-baseball months, a decision that was made because it allows him to pay rent and cover other living expenses while also giving him ample time to keep his body in baseball shape.“I was having a really difficult time finding some sort of job to where I feel like I could adequately train, lift, throw, condition, while still working,” said Isaacs, a relief pitcher who spent most of last season in Double A.Isaacs will most often drive on occasional weekday mornings and afternoons and is usually fulfilled in his conversations with passengers, who have ranged from Olympic speedskaters to CEOs to teachers running late for school.While he doesn’t often disclose his profession while driving, when it does come up Isaacs will get asked similar questions as Sneed, as most assume he doesn’t need to be driving for Uber because he’s a baseball player.“That just goes to show you that a lot of people associate minor league baseball with being rich or well off,” Isaacs said.Even with no game action in the offseason months, minor leaguers still need to stay in top shape for spring training, forcing them to find a healthy medium between baseball and their other jobs.“You would like to enjoy yourself a little bit and do those things, and see your family and see your friends and have a little time to yourself, but fitting all that stuff in an offseason can actually be pretty difficult,” Sneed said. “It’s kind of just a big balancing act of trying to balance all those things and get enough of each in to where you enjoy your offseason, but you also make it worthwhile to where you’re heading in to spring training and you’re ready to go.”Other players, such as Cody Decker, have created their own offseason jobs. Decker, a Diamondbacks minor leaguer, hosts a trivia show across different bars, restaurants and theaters in the Los Angeles area.Decker, who has worked at a baseball school and gym, and as a bartender and bouncer among other occupations, said he decided to take over the show after the trivia show at the place he used to bartend was “boring and run-of-the-mill.” Recently, it’s gone from a job to a hobby that he carries around with him.“Over the years it has evolved into a more multimedia platform where it’s more or less a variety show with me on the microphone and there are some questions and prizes involved,” Decker said. “So much so that I have integrated it — let’s say I’m playing for a team where we have a bus trip, I will run bus trivia with the players so we can pass along a seven-hour bus ride.“I do something that is uniquely mine. Nobody else does something like it, I know that for a fact.” Cy Sneed frequently gets asked the same questions when he’s substitute teaching: “Why are you working here? Aren’t you a millionaire?”Sneed, a pitcher in the Houston Astros organization who reached Triple A last season, politely disregards the question. Gaining a different outlook on life outside the sport has proven valuable for the players, who can apply the real-world lessons and experience both in the present and when their careers conclude.That being said, none of them would trade the opportunity to play professional baseball on a daily basis.“I would say it makes you value hard work, that’s for sure,” Decker said. “Especially in those early years, you just had to work your ass off to stay afloat. I was a senior sign out of college, so I didn’t get paid anything. It was eye opening, what it’s going to take to get going, to live this dream.”last_img read more

Raymond Taylor: Finding The Right Open Door

first_imgThat official separation of the races was very much part of life that followed Taylor when he was drafted and inducted into the Army in 1942. Taylor served in the all-African-American machine-gunner units assigned to the 450th and 207th Anti-Aircraft Artillery (AAA) Battalions. His units had served in the Alaskan Aleutian Islands before being moved to the farther Pacific theater, stationed in Australia. “Australia didn’t want us then, either,” he recalled, referring to his black fellow servicemen.Taylor went on to see duty in New Guinea, New Britain, Guam, the Philippines, “All the way to Japan,” Taylor recounted with pride.He ended the war with the rank of “buck sergeant,” the lowest level of sergeant, indicated by a three-chevron, with no rockers, insignia.Taylor returned to Fair Haven and then again to active military duty during the Korean War. He again served with the 450th Battalion, being involved in the landing and battle at Inchon in 1950, which became a decisive victory for U.S. and United Nations forces.He finished his military service with the rank of first sergeant; his brothers, William and Kenneth, both gone now, had seen duty at the Battle of the Bulge and elsewhere for William; Kenneth was part of the “Red Ball Express,” a famed truck convoy relying largely on African-American soldiers to provide supplies to the fast-moving Allied Forces making their way across Europe after the D-Day invasion.“I guess we got it in our blood,” to serve, Taylor observed.The three boys came to live in Fair Haven when Raymond was 7. Their parents weren’t in a position to care for the boys. They were taken in by John and Ella Bailey, who weren’t related but became their foster parents. The Taylor boys lived with the Baileys in the River Road home built by John Bailey, who worked as the lighthouse keeper at Twin Lights, Highlands.“Aunt Ella,” as the boys referred to her, was the child of former slaves who relocated to Fair Haven. Her father, Horace Corliss, was one of the carpenters who helped build the historic Bicentennial Hall/Fisk Chapel, still existing on Fisk Street. The site was the center of Fair Haven’s African-American community in the late 19th- and early 20th century.The Taylors continue to live in the Bailey River Road home, having raised their children there.Fair Haven was a good town to grow up in, both Taylor and Elizabeth said. As a child, she said, there were just two stores in town, one at each end, and only one policeman.“We had fun,” Taylor recalled fondly. “We would build wagons. We would go down to the river and jump in,” living the carefree life of the very young.Coming home from the Army in 1953, Taylor went to work for the Little Silver Board of Education, spending his career as a custodian at Point Road School, the district’s elementary school, eventually becoming head custodian. He retired in 1992, but not before establishing some lasting relationships with both teachers and students. “Some of those kids grew up with my kids, played with my kids,” Taylor said. And he cared for his charges, always looking out for them in small ways. “I always knew all their names,” he said.“I always lectured the boys who worked under me about what was expected of them,” in the school, he said. “To respect the kids, respect the teachers.”It’s been a good life for the Taylors, who have six grandchildren and six great-grandkids, who come to visit when they can. And a life that will continue in Fair Haven, if Elizabeth has any say in it. “I wouldn’t live anywhere else,” she said.For Raymond, his more than nine-decade life provided lessons. One of the most important, he stressed is, “The world’s open to you if you just find the right door.”This article was first published on the Scene Page in the April 20-27, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. By John Burton |Memorial Day means a lot to Raymond Taylor Sr., who has spent most of his 94 years living in Fair Haven. As the day approaches Taylor takes out his U.S. Army uniform – the olive drab, old Eisenhower waist jacket that Taylor can still fit into, bearing the “three up and two down,” chevrons and rockers indicating his rank of Army first sergeant and his Distinguished Service medal and combat infantry badge. His Army cloth side cap can sit proudly on his head, now with the gray hair of age, the cap adorned with insignias of his former outfits, as well as noting his membership in the Red Bank Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 438, alluding to his experiences in World War II and in the Korean War a few years later.Taylor, barring his deployment for military service, has appeared at every Fair Haven Memorial Service since 1947, according to Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli. At the annual services honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country, Taylor often offers a few words about the holiday’s true meaning and his personal experiences. “I just want to speak the truth,” he said. “I don’t write it down … I just speak whatever comes into my head and out my mouth.”And he said he plans to do it as long as he can, God willing, because “I understand what I was fighting for,” he said in his soft-spoken voice and with a steely glint of remembrance in his eyes. “I was fighting for the good of my people.”“His people” – Taylor is an American who served his country proudly in two conflicts and cared for his wife, Elizabeth, who is now 88, and their seven children. But he’s also an African-American man who grew up in the early part of the 20th century, a time when segregation was still very much a part of life.Taylor and his wife, who also grew up in Fair Haven, recalled going to Red Bank on Saturdays. She and her friends would walk there and back, Elizabeth remembered, “to save the 20 cents the bus cost, 10 cents each way.”Taylor said he liked to go to the Carlton Theater (now the Count Basie Theatre) to watch the “cowboy pictures.” But as an African-American, Taylor acknowledged, he would have to sit in the balcony.In his hometown at the time, blacks and whites attended separate churches and he, his brothers and black friends had a separate Boy Scout troop. Taylor was the first African-American to graduate Red Bank High School, back when it was on Mechanic Street.And the “’N-word’ was spoken,” he remembered. But, “We learned to live around it,” he said. He and his brothers, William and Kenneth, played with white children and had wonderful relationships with their families in the days before Fair Haven’s streets were paved, when they were simply covered with dirt or gravel. “Sometimes we stayed over in each other’s house,” as children, he said.last_img read more

Salmonella enterocolitis

first_imgDefinitionSalmonella enterocolitis is an infection in the lining of the small intestine caused by Salmonella bacteria.Alternative NamesSalmonellosis; Nontyphoidal salmonellaCauses, incidence, and risk factorsSalmonella infection is one of the most common types of food poisoning. It occurs when you swallow food or water that contains the salmonella bacteria.The salmonella germs may get into the food you eat (called contamination) in several ways.You are more likely to get this type of infection if you have:Eaten foods such as turkey, turkey dressing, chicken, or eggs that have not been cooked well or stored properlyFamily members with recent salmonella infectionBeen or worked in a hospital, nursing home, or other long-term health facilityA pet iguana or other lizards, turtles, or snakes (reptiles are carriers of salmonella)A weakened immune systemRegularly used medicines that block acid production in the stomachCrohns disease or ulcerative colitisUsed antibiotics in the recent pastMostpeople with this conditionare younger than 20.SymptomsThe time between infection and symptoms is 8 – 48 hours. Symptoms include:Abdominal pain, cramping, or tendernessChillsDiarrheaFeverMuscle painNauseaVomitingSigns and testsThehealth care providerwill perform a physical exam. You may have signs of a tender abdomen and tiny pink spots on the skin called rose spots.Tests that may be done include:Blood cultureComplete blood count with differentialFebrile/cold agglutinins (test for specific antibodies)Stool culture for salmonellaTreatmentThe goal is to make you feel better and avoid dehydration. Dehydration means your body does not have as much water and fluids as it should.These things may help you feel better if you have diarrhea:advertisementDrink 8 to 10 glasses of clear fluids every day. Water is best.Drink at least 1 cup of liquid every time you have a loose bowel movement.Eat small meals throughout the day, instead of three big meals.Eat some salty foods, such as pretzels, soup, and sports drinks.Eat some high-potassium foods, such as bananas, potatoes without the skin, and watered-down fruit juices.Give your child fluids for the first 4 to 6 hours. At first, try 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of fluid every 30 to 60 minutes.Infants should continue to breastfeed and receiveelectrolyte replacement solutions as recommended by your health care provider.You can use an over-the-counter drink, such as Pedialyte or Infalyte. Do not water down these drinks.You can also try Pedialyte popsicles.Watered-down fruit juice or broth may also help.Medicines that slow down diarrhea are usually not given because they maymake the infection last longer. If you have severe symptoms, your health care provider may prescribe antibiotics.If you take water pills ordiuretics, you may need to stop taking them when you have diarrhea. Ask your health care provider.Expectations (prognosis)In otherwise healthy people, symptoms should go away in 2 – 5 days, but they may lastfor 1 – 2 weeks.The bacteria can be shed in the feces of some treated patients for months to a year after the infection.
