What to watch during quarantine TCU wants ex-professor’s discrimination suit dismissed ReddIt Robbie Vaglio Twitter printThe Frogs’ 13-match non-conference winning streak came to a close Friday, as TCU finished just short against the Buffaloes of Colorado, 1-0.Despite a dominant performance by the Horned Frogs, TCU could not find the back of the net on 14 shots or penetrate the back line of Colorado’s defense.“Possession-wise, we had the ball a lot in good spots, but we were not quite as efficient in final third,” head coach Eric Bell said. “We had 14 shots but none on goal. Hats off to Colorado, they played a good game, but we have to be better in the final third.”In the 33rd minute, Colorado’s Kelsey Aaknes fed the ball to the left corner of the field to Joss Orejel, who crossed the ball into the box to Taylor Korneick who headed the ball just over the diving Katie Lund for the only goal of the match.TCU’s shutout streak to open the season ended at 212 minutes and 16 seconds.The Frogs amped up the pressure late in the match, outshooting Colorado 8-2, but found no answer to Colorado’s defense. Off three corner kicks in the match, only one generated a shot on goal, which was shot high by senior forward Emma Heckendorn, who tied with first-year students Natalee Heiser and Tijana Djuricek for the team lead in shots on goal with three.“They were nice and tight and hard for us to break down,” Bell said. “They would drop off and present a nice wall of four.”The Frogs outshot their opponent for the third straight game, but were shutout for the first time this season.Bell commented on why the Frogs are not worried about this one blemish on the schedule.“We are a younger group and it’s a process,” Bell said. “We are still learning about our group and the psychology of our group. I take a lot of positives out of today’s game. We dominated possession, but it’s not about that, it’s about putting it in the net. We have to be more effective in the final third.”The Frogs look to pick themselves up after a tough loss tonight as they wrap-up their Colorado road trip at Northern Colorado.

The manufacturing sector has long suffered the high costs of electricity which skyrocket production costs and result in higher prices for locally-made products.Guyana Marketing and Services Association (GMSA) President Clinton Williams on Thursday acknowledged that this trend still continues and until the issue of unreliable power is wiped away, the operations of manufacturers will be stymied, creating a ripple effect.GMSA President Clinton WilliamsHe shared these remarks during their luncheon at the Pegasus Hotel, in the presence of their executives, manufacturers, and caretaker President David Granger.“Many of the longstanding jeopardies facing us are inextricably linked to the high cost on reliability of electrical power. We must reiterate this stranglehold will continue until we slay the beast of expensive non-reliable power. The private sector, and particularly the manufacturing sector, would continue to bellow way below potential, resulting in a serious knock-on effects on jobs and of course, on our economy,” he said.For this, the Association’s President suggested a deal that would alleviate this setback by providing fuel at a lower price. He insisted that more needs to be done on Government’s end to make waves on the local and foreign markets.“We are suggesting that we must quickly enter into an arrangement that allows the utilisation of part of our current and future crude oil export receipts for refined oil at prices that are considerably cheaper than those obtained at the moment. While Government’s recent initiatives to introduce some measures to reduce electricity costs across the board is a step in the right direction, much more needs to be done if we are to realise any significant improvements in our cost of production and of course, computable advantage on the local, regional and international markets,” Williams positioned.Earlier this year, Private Sector Commission (PSC) Executive Ramesh Dookhoo noted that price fluctuations and the high cost of fuel prohibit Guyana from being competitive with other countries.“We still have a huge challenge as a manufacturing country, with the cost for electricity. I would urge the Government to continue to look for sustainable supplies and initiatives in energy. Fluctuations that govern the price of oil affect us and put Guyana in a place where we’re not competitive to export and compete with countries that have cheaper energy,” Dookhoo had told this publication.In Guyana, the Guyana Power and Light’s (GPL) Demerara interconnected system is fed with power by the Power Producers and Distributors Inc (PPDI), which replaced Wartsila, a company from Finland which maintained over a dozen engines for the utility company for two decades.Meanwhile, the GMSA called for enhancements to the high cost and time associated with trades since consumers are suffering from the inflated import bills.“GMSA would wish to see improvements in both the high cost and time consuming nature of our trade transaction procedures. These onerous costs ultimately are passed down to the end user of imported items. Our consumers suffer the same fate with locally manufactured products that derive from imported raw materials”.On the topic of finances, Williams mentioned their vision to have growing Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures and for Guyana to be recognised for ease of doing business.“We would like to see Guyana’s GDP and per capita statistics skyrocket because we know that they can. It would be an enormous achievement if Guyana could be listed in the top 10 in the world’s ranking for ease of doing business…The GMSA firmly believes that our country’s development strategies must be remain underpinned by axiom that includes food security, energy security…and the pursuit of economic drivers such as ICT, renewable energy and the new and emerging oil and gas sector,” he mentioned.
