Police say time to change drinking culture

first_imgAlcohol breeds violence, study findsOneNews 8 August 2013 Violent crime is more likely to happen in areas where there are more bars, clubs, supermarkets and grocery stores, new research shows. But the density of alcohol outlets does not directly translate into greater social harms, according to a report commissioned by the Health Promotion Agency. Instead, the relationship varies depending on the town or city in the North Island. In Wellington City, for every additional licensed club – such as sports and cosmopolitan clubs – there were four additional violent offences per year. For every additional licensed club in the Hutt Valley and Porirua City, there were an extra 1.6 car crashes each year.Waikato University economics lecturer Dr Michael Cameron said the effect of off-licences stood out in Porirua, as did the impact of bars and clubs in South Auckland. In most of Porirua City and parts of Upper Hutt, an additional off-licence outlet was associated with more than 10.5 additional violent offences per year, the report showed. “It’s not surprising given the amount of unrest there’s been in the area and community action against off-licence outlets,” Dr Cameron said. “This really shows that the community action is really warranted.”The agency’s report was based on data collected between 2006 and 2011 to help North Island councils develop local alcohol policies. These can restrict or extend trading hours of licensed premises, limit location and density of licences, and impose one-way door policies and conditions on bars.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/police-say-time-change-drinking-culture-5528882last_img read more

Barton sees Marseille future

first_img Over a series of Tweets he insisted he held no grudges against QPR, made a pointed jibe at former boss Mark Hughes and referenced an apparent deal between Rangers and Marseille for his services. “Some strange people think that I’ll be playing in the Championship next season?? Good one! QPR might, I won’t! #fact,” he wrote. “It’s not up to QPR if I stay. Agreement already in place for me to stay here. Can’t see QPR wanting me on the wage bill in the Champ. “My QPR career was over when they decided to listen to the footballing sage, Mark of Hughes… “I’m loving life in France. Loving Marseille. They love me. All I want to do is give everything for this football club. They backed me when nobody else did, for that I will be eternally grateful. This club is now in my blood, its impossible to get it out (sic) #ForzaOM. “I really hope they (QPR) stay up. I have all season. Stay up/go down. Harry stays/goes. I don’t want to be part of it. Marseille is my home now.” Barton is currently on loan with the Ligue 1 club, who took him on in August while he served a 12-match ban incurred during the last game of the 2011/12 season against Manchester City. The midfielder, who is a frequent and controversial user of Twitter, used the social networking site to reveal that he would not be going back to Loftus Road regardless of their league status and that OM are now “in his blood”. Joey Barton claims he will still be a Marseille player next season as an agreement already exists with QPR.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Remi Garde hopes Aston Villa can be motivated by Leicester revivial

first_img Press Association Remi Garde has told his struggling Aston Villa players to use Leicester’s stunning survival story as inspiration to avoid relegation from the Barclays Premier League. The Foxes – who were six points from safety on Boxing Day last year – won seven of their final nine games to stay up. “It’s quite private what I tell the players but this is one of the points that I said to try and motivate them,” said Garde. “The manager’s job is not only about having boots, a whistle and the training session. “I am fully aware that football has changed, individual behaviour can be very helpful for the team. But for the team you cannot ignore that. “You have to know that your 25 players, some can be in a bad mood because of many reasons. “You cannot ignore that. To have to try and resolve the problem but it’s a lot of work.” Villa face fellow strugglers Norwich on Monday and then Sunderland on January 2 in must-win games following their Hammers clash. But Garde ruled out using a sports psychologist to help Villa in their battle against the drop. He said: “I didn’t bring one in, I am interested in psychology but not to bring in someone within in the group, it’s very particular, football is something very different. “But individual and group psychology is very important, I’ve got experience around me of that, we talk a lot about that. Training is not only running and kicking the ball.” center_img Villa are bottom of the table and 10 points from safety, having won just once this season, ahead of Saturday’s visit of West Ham. Leicester beat the drop despite being rooted to the foot of the standings at Christmas last season and have gone from strength to strength under Claudio Ranieri this term, with the Foxes remarkably two points clear at the top of the table. last_img read more

Newly created fields have Acadia Fire back in business

first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Latest Posts MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all)center_img LAMOINE — Thanks to some outside-the-box thinking, Acadia Fire Soccer Academy is back in business.After losing its spring season to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Acadia Fire has returned to action via a nontraditional summer session that began June 3. Unable to play at its indoor facility, the club has found a viable alternative just 5 miles away from home.Acadia Fire is currently playing on a patch of Lamoine land owned by Herb Watson, a passionate soccer fan and organization board member. The club has converted part of the 2-acre space into two soccer fields to provide players with fresh air and plenty of room to roam in the age of social distancing.“It’s a nice place because it’s open and out of the way,” said Watson, a retired Mount Desert Elementary School teacher whose land is on the east side of Mud Creek Road adjacent to the Mount Desert Narrows. “It’s a great spot for the kids to be able to get out and be active.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textFor years, Acadia Fire has conducted training sessions at its indoor facility on Bar Harbor Road in Trenton. The turfed facility provides a quality playing environment year-round, including the days in the winter and early spring in which outdoor play is not remotely tenable.The pandemic, though, has made the Trenton facility a less-than-ideal option. In addition to the facility’s limited spacing, the indoor air circulation posed problems for an activity dependent on group and individual interactions.“We knew we weren’t going to be able to play there,” Acadia Fire Marketing Director Emily Ellis said. “We needed something bigger in an outdoor setting if we were going to make it work.”After Acadia Fire exhausted a few other potential options, Watson stepped in with the possibility of making his land available for use. The club was interested, and after Watson did some preliminary work on the property to see what could be done, he was more than pleased with the results.“I figured, ‘Hey, it’s better than nothing,’” said Watson, who has two grandsons playing for Acadia Fire. “I didn’t know what kind of field we would get out of it, but after I mowed a section, I said, ‘Hey, I think this is going to work out.’”Watson begin mowing two fields to training specificities, and several Acadia Fire coaches lined them both to create a pair of new soccer pitches. Just a few days later, the club became one of the few in Hancock County and the state at large to formally return to youth sports.In most years, the fields behind Watson’s home are used for the purpose of gathering hay. This year, though, the possibility of using them for another purpose arose after a young farming family paid to take the hay off his hands.“It ended up being a win-win for everybody,” Watson said. “I’m not losing money on it because they paid me for it, and I get to look down and see all the kids playing and having fun. It’s a great thing to see.”In adherence to state guidelines in relation to community sports, training sessions do not allow for scrimmages or offensive and defensive drills. The club is also maintaining strict requirements for equipment sanitization in addition to conducting temperature checks and asking players questions about possible COVID-19 symptoms.That’s not to say all parents have been comfortable with being able to return to action. Yet after Acadia Fire conducted a survey of players and parents in the weeks prior to the start of play, most respondents indicated they felt safe with the club’s plan to get back to soccer.“I would say the majority of each team has come out to train,” Ellis said. “We’ve kept players and their parents informed about the protocols in place and provided a lot of information on our website.”At some point down the road, of course, Acadia Fire will be able to return to its home facility. As long as the pandemic lingers, though, those involved can rest assured that the club has a strong alternative.“We’re really glad it worked out this way,” Ellis said. “People have been so happy to have something happening again, and it’s great to see everyone’s faces and see everyone engaged about soccer.” Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.
