It was a drastic decision that, if one had listened to the cynics at the time, was doomed to failure. Yet a little more than 20 years after the Football Association’s then technical director Howard Wilkinson proposed that responsibility for the national under-15 and under-16 teams be taken away from the English Schools FA as part of his ambitious Charter for Quality, Saturday’s events at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata should have provided the final confirmation that the last English manager to win the league was on to something.The thrilling 5-2 victory against Spain in the Under-17 World Cup final provided the perfect ending to an unprecedented year of success for the FA’s age-group teams. Since Steve Cooper’s side were beaten by the same opponents on penalties in the final of the European Championship in May, England have also been crowned world champions at under-20 level and won the European under-19 title in ruthless fashion, not to mention the triumph at the prestigious Toulon tournament for the second year in a row.“It’s fantastic evidence that we have the best youth developers in the world in this country and they are developing the best players in the world,” says Wilkinson. “But it’s not a transformation – this has been a long progression that started with the introduction of academies and the building of St George’s Park. Once that was in place, it’s all been about the benefit of having a plan and sticking to it.”In 2007 England qualified for the Under-17 World Cup for the first time, reaching the quarter-finals in South Korea, before losing at the same stage four years later. But the appointment of Dan Ashworth as technical director in 2012 when the FA moved into its £100m headquarters proved to be another watershed moment. Much maligned for his role in the Eni Aluko/Mark Sampson controversy, the former defender who spent most of his career playing for non-league clubs in Norfolk deserves credit for introducing the joined-up approach by which all England’s coaches now work out of the same office at St George’s Park. “All the national coaches are very close, from Kevin Betsy with the under-15s to Gareth Southgate with the senior team,” Cooper told BBC 5 Live on Sunday. “The teams are expected to play in a certain way and, if it is a good one, the more you practise it the better you become at it.”Wilkinson believes that has been made possible thanks to the support of the academy system he helped to introduce in 1997. The FA invites coaches from all over the country to attend regular sessions at St George’s Park which explain its long-term vision to develop future internationals. “You’re asking them to entrust their players into your hands,” Wilkinson says. “If you’re going to do that, then you’ve got to be able to show that the process is worthwhile for their players and will improve them rather than detract from their development. I think over the years academies have come to appreciate that this isn’t a conflict; this is a joint effort.”The Crystal Palace academy director, Gary Issott, has seen the youth-team products Nathaniel Clyne and Wilfried Zaha progress through the age groups to win senior caps for England, even if Zaha eventually opted to play for Ivory Coast. He remembers the then England Under-21 manager, Stuart Pearce, coming to the training ground to implore them to make their best young players available for international duty in an effort to give them the experience they need.“In Spain and Germany all the best young players would have accumulated something like 80 caps through the different age groups by the time they are ready to step up to senior level,” Issott says. “So we were being educated as clubs as far back as eight years ago. The FA has definitely engaged more with the clubs in recent years. There is an improved scouting network that means most of our games are being watched. It’s just about trying to build a relationship with the clubs and trying to understand what they are trying to do.“It’s also about trying to keep the players grounded because there’s a spin-off every time you get called up,” he adds. “It’s almost like alerting every agent and every predator club in the country. That’s almost the biggest challenge. I remember one period when we had several players in the England Under-19 side and you could see their mind-set: ‘Well I’m the best in my position in England and I’m almost guaranteed to make it.’ We’d pull them over and say: ‘Yes, you’re the best for your age in this country but the Premier League is the best out of 70 countries in an age band of 17 to 35.’ The next level is really tough for them to crack.” Share on Twitter Read more Share on WhatsApp Share via Email For England’s under-20 coach, Paul Simpson, and Cooper, however, following Brazil’s class of 2003 into the record books by winning two world titles in the same year is just the start of the process they hope will lead to silverware when it matters most. “The results have been fantastic but we are very much still in the infancy,” Cooper says. “We want to be as successful as we can but we also want to work in a way that’s beneficial for the future. It was fantastic to win on Saturday but, even if we hadn’t, it would have been a successful tournament. We played in a World Cup, with five internal flights, a penalty shootout and playing against the best teams and beating them. We have to keep one eye on the future. What we really want is to be successful at senior level.”Whether that becomes reality will be fascinating to watch unfold, although the manner in which England’s young players have conducted themselves this year – culminating in the stirring comeback from two goals down after 30 minutes on Saturday – has been a credit to their coaches.“You can’t develop a player without developing the person,” says Wilkinson. “Under pressure people with the right mentality and the right temperament then produce the best performances. England were always the best team from kick-off to finish but in the opening stages they were naive. They left themselves bare and paid the price. But fortunately talent always rebounds and that’s what they did.”Let’s hope the senior team were taking notes.The sudden rise of Phil FodenWhen did he first come to public attention?On 21 July, in America, on debut, when Manchester City faced Manchester United at Houston’s NRG Stadium during the summer tour. In the opening minutes the 17-year-old Foden dribbled forward and let go a left-foot shot that David de Gea had to watch carefully. In the company of Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Agüero, Gabriel Jesus, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Leroy Sané, Foden shone throughout, catching the eye of those present.What kind of player is he?Foden likes to dribble and drive forward and has the spatial and game awareness that marks him out from his age-group peers. He can operate as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder, wide forward or No10. In Houston there appeared a ready-made mental edge that meant Foden immediately settled against United. This was borne out by his stellar displays at the under-17 World Cup that made him player of the tournament in India.What does his England Under-17 coach say?Steve Cooper was effusive when discussing Foden on Sunday. He described the player of the tournament award as “well deserved” and added on BBC 5 Live: “You only have to watch him play and see what he stands for. He loves to play. He’d play a game every day if he had the chance; putting him on the pitch is where he belongs. You see the obvious talent that comes to the eye with Phil and his decision-making but behind that he’s such a hard-working player, such a humble kid. He’s really a team player – that’s the nice bit when you get to know him.”Has Foden played since the derby for City?No. Foden is yet to make his senior bow. He was first an unused replacement for the Champions League group game draw with Celtic at the Etihad Stadium last December. The Stockport-born player has also been on the bench this season, including for the opening-day win at Brighton & Hove Albion. He has been training with the first team since the start of the season and has played in the elite development side.What chance does Foden have of breaking into a City XI whose creative forces include De Bruyne, David and Bernardo Silva, Sané, Raheem Sterling and Jesus?This is the big-question. Even to become a match-day squad regular is an achievement given the riches Pep Guardiola can call on. Listen to the head coach, though, and Foden may be handed a chance to establish himself. “It’s so important for Manchester City that [Foden] is playing in a high level,” Guardiola says. Since Micah Richards in 2006 City’s only homegrown success is Tosin Adarabioyo, so the club and fans would love for Foden to break into the first team. Will he do it? Tune in over the rest of the season to discover whether Guardiola truly trusts him. Jamie Jackson Share on Pinterest England 5-2 Spain: Under-17 World Cup final — as it happened!

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA), Rosalee Gage-Grey, says the agency is currently formalising a mentorship programme, through which young children can be guided by positive role models. “We want to create a culture where every person sees a child as his or her own. By this, we are engaging persons to create a community of protectors; persons who will help to care and protect our children,” Mrs. Gage-Grey added. Story Highlights Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA), Rosalee Gage-Grey, says the agency is currently formalising a mentorship programme, through which young children can be guided by positive role models.Speaking at the launch of Sarah’s Children, an advocacy group formed to protect children and the elderly from abuse, at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel & Spa in St. James on March 8, Mrs. Gage-Grey said “we will recruit big brothers and sisters who will be matched with our children”.“We want to create a culture where every person sees a child as his or her own. By this, we are engaging persons to create a community of protectors; persons who will help to care and protect our children,” Mrs. Gage-Grey added.The CEO said children must be protected from harm, so if a parent is neglecting his or her child, “your role is to reach out to that parent and give them as much support as possible. If we do this, we would have lessened the chances of a child being exposed to danger”.She noted that last year, the Government launched the Child Development Agency (CDA) Cares, a volunteer programme which “seeks the assistance of the public in mentoring our children”.“We can do this by adopting a home, sponsoring a child or giving service to children in the care of the State. This, we believe, can be the breakthrough in transforming the lives of our children,” Mrs. Gage-Grey said.The CEO noted that persons can assist with transforming the lives of children through the Foster Care programme.“Foster care is a legal process that allows non-biological parents to provide for children in State care in a stable environment, which contributes to their overall development,” Mrs. Gage-Grey said.She further pointed out that children who have been placed in foster care are usually those who have been abused, orphaned, abandoned, neglected or cannot be cared for by their parents or relatives.“We have the short-term foster care, which allows children to be placed temporarily with families while alternative arrangements for accommodation are made,” Mrs. Gage-Grey said.“Then there is the permanent foster care, which provides children with an opportunity to be placed with families on a long-term basis until they are ready for independent living. There is also the kinship fostering, which allows children to be placed with relatives on a long-term or short-term basis,” she added.Mrs. Gage-Grey pointed out that there is a list of criteria to be fulfilled before one can become a foster parent, a prerequisite to ensure that children are not placed in an at-risk situation.“One has to be a responsible adult in good legal standing, who exhibits good parental qualities. That person must also be between the age of 25 and 65 years. However, consideration may be given to persons over 65 years if the individual is a relative of the child,” she explained.The CEO said that it could either be a single individual or a couple, and that placement with a single man is only done if the applicant is related to the child, or in exceptional circumstances.“There must also be evidence of a suitable accommodation for a child, taking into consideration the community on a whole,” Mrs. Gage-Grey said.“The prospective parent must also be gainfully employed or have a steady income to meet the needs of the family. There should also be a willingness to undergo a medical examination,” she added. The CEO said children must be protected from harm, so if a parent is neglecting his or her child, “your role is to reach out to that parent and give them as much support as possible. If we do this, we would have lessened the chances of a child being exposed to danger”.
Remarkable, but the NCAA tournament tops itself almost every year. This version of March Madness produced countless dramatic finishes, upsets, surprises and heroes. Only a quartet of teams remaimn standing, a Final Four in Texas that has the makings for something special.Here’s how No 1. Florida, Wisconsin, Kentucky and Connecticut advanced to the biggest weekend of A NCAA basketball season, where the Gators will face surprising UConn, and UK, with five freshmen starters, will take on the deliberate Badgers:* Kentucky outlasted Michigan, 75-72, on Aaron Harrison’s 25-foot three-point shot with 2.6 seconds remaining. It was a thrilling game that put the Wildcats in rarified air: The Wildcats are the first set of five freshmen starters to advance to the Final Four since Michigan’s renown “Fab Five” in 1992. Also, Kentucky is the first team in NCAA Tournament history to defeat both participants of the previous year’s championship game (Michigan and Louisville).* Shabazz Napier of Connecticut was dazzling in leading UConn to a 60-54 victory over Michigan State, the team picked by many to win the title. Napier scored 17 of his 25 points in the final 20 minutes. His three free throws with 37.6 seconds left were typical of the clutch play he exhibited. And so, the Huskies came back from nine down in the second half to make it to next week against Florida.* Florida was too big, too strong, too talented and too determined to allow Dayton to derail the Gators’ championship aspirations. Florida won 62-52, and the outcome never really was in doubt. Florida controlled the pace of the game and limited Dayton’s transition opportunities. The Flyers had been running and gunning in their three previous tournament wins, but scored just eight transition points on Saturday thanks to Florida’s full-court pressure defense.* Wisconsin’s tough defense and deliberate pace were key factors in the Badgers advancing past No. 1-seed Arizona, 64-63, in overtime. Center Frank Kaminsky had 28 points, six in OT, and 11 rebounds and scored from inside and outside, including three 3-pointers, for the No. 2 seed Badgers (30-7). It’s Wisconsin’s first Final Four appearance since 2000, and first for 66-year-old coach Bo Ryan, who earned his 704th career victory.
Amazing Science Ideas & Solutions at FortisTCI Science Fair TCI Police looking for candy & electricity thieves Providenciales, 04 Feb 2016 – The reviews were all the rave for the 15 schools which participated in the 7th Annual Ministry of Education Science Fair sponsored by FortisTCI. Holy Family Academy entered in both the high school and primary school divisions and is always an impressive candidate in the show; this year the high school collected aluminum cans, melted them down and created jewelry, accessories and art. Dr. Malcolm was wowed. “Okay we have so much waste on the side of the road, I believe we should start collecting our cans and take them to Holy Family Academy so that they canuse it and probably sell this grat product; I like what you did with the glitter.”Finally, at least in recent years, a robot. Maranatha Academy did not just present any old robot, theirs, called an Eco-droid would collect garbage and pointed to the future for keeping the TCI clean.“The basic concept is that it will be autonomously controlled by an ultrasonic sensor that senses whatever is in front of it and with the arm attached would be able to pick it up and carry it to the nearest garbage via a GPS system.”Beauty was top of mind for Clement Howell High and Community Christian Academy, both schools used a common plant to create the answer to acne, blemishes and younger, healthier skin. CHHS used Aloe. Dee to CHHS: Did you test this on any human being?“Yes we did, here are the results. This is a day after using the product as you can see, her skin tone got brighter…Dee to CHHS: Did you Photoshop that?“No! (laughter) You can see, some of the blemishes from acne are gone.”Community Christian used Neem. “The Neem soap we have here can do many things, it helps acne by tightening the skin and making the pores smaller and can stop blemishes. If you turn it into gel, you can rub it on your skin.”And as for best use of food… it had to be the primary schoolers of Oseta Jolly; forget about having to dispose of cups and plates after a party, you can now just eat them because of this group, they can be made of JELLO.“Because we used gelatin, gelatin does not have a flavor but after it is refrigerated and is in water it gets just hard and it helps things to stand up. We used the JELLO for it to have flavor, and for it to smell nice.”Spicy food is good, not just to the taste for so many… but now for the heart and it even cuts fat according to the International School.“If you eat more spicy food, you get a process called thermogenesis which makes your cells hotter and burns energy, then you can lose weight and you can reduce the chance of getting a heart attack or stroke.”A water quality test from HJ Robinson High, a recycling of sewer water by Precious Treasures, an experiment to test the potency of every day liquids by Enid Capron, how sea water can be used as energy by both Raymond Gardiner High and TCIPS and a propane and electricity free stove, just in time for hurricane season by Marjorie Basden High were among the contenders at the Science Fair which was held at the Gus Lightbourne Gym on Thursday; it is one of the finale highlights of Education Week in the country.
