0Shares0000Chile’s midfielder Arturo Vidal (C) scores a header against Cameroon on June 18, 2017 © AFP / Yuri KADOBNOVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 18 – Arturo Vidal’s late header helped Chile to a 2-0 win over Cameroon in their Confederations Cup Group B opener in Moscow on Sunday, as the video assistant referee played a prominent role.Chile dominated an entertaining, but goalless, first half as Eduardo Vargas saw his strike ruled out by the video assistant. The Copa America champions had to wait until the 81st minute though to find a breakthrough, which was provided by a flying header from Bayern Munich midfielder Vidal.Vargas, who missed a host of earlier chances, added a second in added time after another video review.The victory gave Chile a perfect start to their maiden Confederations Cup campaign, after they qualified by successfully defending their Copa America title last year.“It was very important to start in the right way with our goal to become champions,” said Vidal, who also dedicated the triumph to the victims of a fierce storm in Chile that has claimed several lives.“We were superior to Cameroon, pressed harder and looked to score more… Even though it was hard to play the first Confederations Cup match in our history.”Reigning World Cup-winners Germany and Australia make up Group B, and they go head-to-head on Monday.The South Americans made a blistering start and almost took the lead inside the first minute, but striker Vargas’ shot crashed back off the post, before Jose Fuenzalida saw his low effort well saved by Cameroon keeper Fabrice Ondoa just seconds later.The Africa Cup of Nations holders did look a threat on the counter-attack and Vincent Aboubakar was denied by the legs of Johnny Herrera, who was in the Chile goal ahead of usual captain Claudio Bravo.Ondoa was the busier of the two keepers in the first half though and he had to be alert to keep out Edson Puch’s long-range strike.The best chance of the opening 45 minutes fell to Vargas after he was played through by Vidal’s pass, but he blazed over.Chile’s forward Eduardo Vargas (L) scores his team’s second goal on June 18, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVControversy reigned on the stroke of half-time at the Otkrytiye Arena as Vargas saw his stoppage-time goal ruled out.The 27-year-old clipped the ball home, but over a minute after the ball had hit the net, the video assistant adjudged the Tigres forward to have been marginally offside.Alexis Sanchez, who had been struggling with an ankle injury before the game, was introduced by coach Juan Antonio Pizzi 12 minutes after the interval as he looked for the 38th international goal that would make him Chile’s outright record scorer.Cameroon were much-improved in the second half as they gained a measure of control, but Benjamin Moukandjo could only curl a free-kick wide.Vargas continued to see chances come and go, with his latest effort being deflected behind for a corner.That set-piece almost saw the deadlock broken, but Mauricio Isla flicked a header past the far post with the goal gaping.Sanchez made a difference as Chile finally forged ahead with nine minutes to play.The Arsenal forward’s dinked cross was met by Vidal, whose powerful header gave him a 23rd goal for his country.Sanchez should have broken the record, but saw his shot blocked after rounding Ondoa, only for Vargas to poke in the rebound.After the game’s second review, the goal and three points for Chile were confirmed.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
CALGARY, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley expressed frustration again Monday about a lack of progress in completing the Trans Mountain pipeline.Notley’s comments came after a federal cabinet shuffle that left Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi in his portfolio.She said that’s probably a good thing as removing Sohi before the outcome of a court-ordered Indigenous consultation by the National Energy Board would be likely to cause even further delay.- Advertisement -“Albertans still need the federal government to step up and support the industry while we are trying to get through this ridiculousness of having not enough capacity to get our oil and gas to market,” Notley said.“We’ve talked about that. We’ve talked about rail. We’ve talked about other interim programs that could come into place, and we’re disappointed we’ve not heard anything from the federal government yet.”Notley announced late last year that her government will buy rail cars to transport an additional 120,000 barrels a day, which would increase the amount of oil being moved by rail in Canada by one- third.Advertisement The federal government bought Trans Mountain and its expansion project for $4.5 billion last summer only to have the Federal Court of Appeal strike down the energy board’s approval. The court said there had been inadequate Indigenous consultation and failure to consider impacts on the marine environment.The board’s final report needs to be submitted to the federal cabinet by Feb. 22.Notley said partisanship should have nothing to do with support for the resource sector, which is an economic engine for the rest of Canada.The current federal government has at least accomplished one thing, she said.“There was decades of factors that were at play which led to the instability that jeopardized that project. We did get the federal government to buy the pipeline. That’s not nothing. There is a vested interest they have now in getting this darn thing built.”Advertisement Discussions about a purchase agreement are ongoing, she said.She was asked whether the current Liberal government should receive another mandate from voters in a federal election expected later this year.“The facts of the matter is that the previous government, which happened to be from a different political party, also didn’t get it done,” she said.“Quite honestly, the considerations that have led to the ridiculousness that Albertans are so frustrated with right now … has been in the making for decades.”Advertisement
By Megan Bagdonas STAFF WRITER Discussing whether to bring disposable underwear and what to do if hassled by Congolese customs officials, the missionaries couldn’t ignore the specter of danger at the final briefing before their departure into the heart of Africa. “If we die over there, we’ll have to be buried over there,” said Lynda MacDonald of San Pedro about their travel health insurance policy. “I feel like I’m on a yo-yo because we’ve had to cancel twice before, and with the Ebola outbreak, we almost had to cancel again,” said Mary Nyren of Torrance. But so far, it looks like their prayers have been answered, their visas granted and the Ebola virus contained at a location thousands of miles from where the group plans to travel. “The Congo has been a place where the door has not been opened to us,” Jacob said. “But God has finally opened the door.” Unlike other destinations in Africa, Congo is a notoriously difficult place for travelers. In addition to political unrest and disease, the country is burdened by a lack of passable roads and basic infrastructure, which have been destroyed by wars and rebel uprisings following the country’s independence from Belgium in 1960. It was at this volatile time – when both the United States and the Soviet Union were vying for political influence in the newly independent state – that the 26-year-old doctor from Redondo Beach moved to Congo with his family to set up a medical mission. He managed an 80-bed hospital and leprosarium in the village of Wasolo. “A rebel group with communist backing began to sweep across the country. Dr. Carlson realized the group was coming – but not as fast as they were,” said Byron MacDonald, senior pastor at Rolling Hills Covenant. Carlson evacuated his wife and two children across the Ubangi River to Central African Republic. But when he returned to protect the hospital and his patients, the Simba rebel group captured him and took him, along with other foreign prisoners, to Stanleyville, where he was tortured and sentenced to death for being an American spy, according to a memorial display at Rolling Hills Covenant Church. On Nov. 24, 1964, Belgian and American forces led a rescue mission to free Carlson, as well as about 100 other foreign prisoners. However, when the Simbas got wind of the incoming paratroopers, they opened fire on their prisoners. Carlson was attempting to escape when he was shot down. Rescuers arrived within hours of his death. Time and Life magazines had the young missionary on their covers, and the Loko hospital was established in his honor, according to Daily Breeze articles in 1968. Now the Rolling Hills Covenant missionaries plan to bring fresh linens to the hospital and visit Carlson’s grave in Wasolo. “We knew Paul and his wife when they were members of the church,” said Mel Bridges, who will leave for Congo on Monday. “In fact, I wrote a letter of recommendation for him when he became a missionary in the Congo. On this trip we will be able to see the fruits of his investment there – what he died for.” The 10-day trip is being called a “visionary project.” The group’s mission is to renew a dialog with their sister Covenant churches and help determine future mission projects that will further the goals of the Congolese congregations. “There’s been civil wars and tons of destruction, and we just want to go there and wrap our arms around them and bless them and encourage them with our presence,” said Robert Hennie of Lomita. “They don’t get a lot of foreign visitors, and having us just show up will provide them with hope and let them know we haven’t forgotten about them.” The church is planning another mission trip to Congo in February to begin restoration work on the Loko hospital. email@example.comWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In its third attempt in a year, a seven-member team of missionaries from Rolling Hills Covenant Church in Rolling Hills Estates plans to fly Monday to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Their goal is to encourage evangelical churches hidden deep in the country’s northern rain forests as well as visit the Loko hospital, built as a memorial to Paul Carlson, the South Bay doctor killed by Congolese rebels in 1964. Their first trip, planned for November 2006, was canceled out of concern about violence associated with an upcoming Congolese presidential election. Their fears proved well-founded. Then in April another trip was canceled after the director of the Covenant Church’s missionary wing was caught in the crossfire between two political parties and detained by rebel groups. Now there’s an outbreak of the Ebola virus, which kills up to 90 percent of those infected. Since September, 24 cases of Ebola have been reported.
