Every home game for Brentford this season is momentous, but Saturday has added significance with Liverpool set to visit Brentford Community Stadium.

This is only the Bees’ third home encounter in the Premier League and, after facing Arsenal in their opener, face another traditional English side this weekend. Granted, the understaffed Gunners were there for the August meeting, but Jurgen Klopp’s Reds pose an obviously different test.

Fans were expected to be boisterous in the 2-0 success and an atmosphere of rehearsal is expected on Saturday when they face the six-fold European champions for the first time since 1947.

Thomas Frank wants his team to feed off his energy and has said that every Bee will give their all on the pitch.

“[The fans] need to perform in an incredible way and surpass performance against Arsenal, ”said the Brentford boss in his pre-match press conference. “Against Arsenal, they came from a different world and if they do that then, we promise, we will give everything on the grass.

“The pressure is off. We have a balanced, confident but humble team. We will enter the game with fire in our eyes and a smile on our face to attack and probably also defend a lot, “he added.” We are looking forward to the challenge.

Frank gave a big clue to his possible roster for the game, revealing that 10 of the starters in the impressive 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers will retain their places in the squad.

“I have to find the last one,” he admitted.

Having had to make appearances off the bench in the last two Premier League games, Frank Onyeka will welcome a recall for another meeting with the Reds. The former Midtjylland midfielder faced Klopp’s men in the Champions League last season, scoring one out of six points available in both encounters.

Despite being the underdog on Saturday, the Nigerian will nonetheless strive to be lucky for the third time.

Onyeka’s place in the squad was taken by Shandon Baptiste, who missed Tuesday against Oldham Athletic by suspension. The Grenada international has not particularly pulled trees during these outings after returning from West Africa after contracting a coronavirus and the summer arrival should be positive as to his chances of reclaiming his place. Saturday.

Marcus Forss clearly stole the show with his four goals in their midweek EFL Cup loss to Oldham, but Onyeka was one of Brentford’s best players in the 7-0 victory.

The Nigerian won 10 of his 13 total matches, more than any player on the pitch for both teams, which included 100% success in his aerial matches. Add his three interceptions, three tackles and two completed dribbles (a game high) and we understand just how dominant the 23-year-old was in the rout.

Admittedly, the quality of the opponent – Oldham occupies the bottom of Ligue 2 – implies that little should be read in Tuesday’s performance, but a player who currently ranks fourth in middle tackles and interceptions may be favored against the Reds.

Perhaps an even more notable facet of his game in the way he helps the team’s pressing could give him the green light on Saturday. While Baptiste is currently leading the push for 90, just above second-placed Onyeka, the Nigerian overtakes Grenada for a success rate of 38.2-34.1%.

Brentford.

Brentford’s summer signing was touted as a squeezing machine before he arrived and no doubt featured elements from that side of him at the start of the season.

Interestingly, his urge to engage and win a lot of duels matches the other team starters in midfield. Vitaly Janelt and Christian Norgaard won 5.0 and 4.2, respectively, with Onyeka’s average of 4.3.

Baptiste, in three appearances so far, is averaging 1.7 duels won, a significantly lower average than Janelt, Norgaard and the Nigerian, and could well make his way against Liverpool.

The Reds have tasted defeat only once in 27 Premier League meetings with promoted sides, with their only flaw coming against Fulham in a depressing streak of home defeats last season. The mood in Merseyside is different these days, but Brentford will appreciate the opportunity to claim another scalp in his debut season.

Frank has promised his troops will give their all against Klopp’s side, and Onyeka will want to play his part as the Bees look to poke another league giant in front of their full-throated supporters.

Huge leap of faith: local entrepreneur opens Chic Creations – the Oxford Eagle https://cpscaribnet.com/huge-leap-of-faith-local-entrepreneur-opens-chic-creations-the-oxford-eagle/ https://cpscaribnet.com/huge-leap-of-faith-local-entrepreneur-opens-chic-creations-the-oxford-eagle/#respond Fri, 24 Sep 2021 18:53:34 +0000 https://cpscaribnet.com/huge-leap-of-faith-local-entrepreneur-opens-chic-creations-the-oxford-eagle/ Cam Gilliom was in the middle of a funk.

Cam Gilliom was in the middle of a funk. She found herself at home in Oxford and the dream of opening her shop seemed more and more distant. Gilliom went around town to clear her head when she saw the sign. The property went up for sale next week and Gilliom knew then that she wanted it.

The previous two attempts to open her business windows were never successful, but the luck was too great for her to pass up. Although Gilliom had no way of knowing it would work, she appealed to God and took a leap of faith.

Gilliom is now opening Chic Creations, a hair, skin and wig spa, in her hometown. Located at 1903 University Ave., Chic Creations can meet a variety of beauty needs in the area, such as custom wigs, waxes, makeup, luxury press nails and more.

Starting her business was a challenge, but Gilliom was visibly moved and delighted on its grand opening day.

“I am extremely excited,” she said. “The trip was moving. I still can’t believe this is literally happening and can’t wait to see what it blossoms into.

Gilliom was born and raised in Oxford and as a child was exposed to what would become her future business. Her mother, a cosmetologist, had mannequin heads with which she played as a child.

As a teenager, Gilliom was active and involved in many extracurriculars. She never saw herself doing hairdressing a business until she met her first client in eighth grade.

“After I braided my teammates’ hair before games, one of the parents asked me if I wanted to braid their hair,” said Gilliom. “I was like ‘Sure. I’ve never braided anyone’s hair with extensions but I’m going to give it a try,’ and that was my first client.

The first client turned into an opportunity for Gilliom to earn money, so she continued to braid hair while working part-time and participating in volleyball, basketball and track and field every year. She also took part in competitions and participated in school clubs and reunions.

“I feel like I’ve always been an entrepreneur,” said Gilliom. “I was really cunning. I remember when I was 10 or 11 I would make a bunch of key chains and go and sell them outside or in my mom’s store. I was making just a dollar or two and would use that money if I wanted to go to the store or go skating instead of asking my mom.

When it was time to go to college, Gilliom still made an effort to continue his business. She attended junior college in Alabama, but drove two and a half hours home to continue styling. Gilliom would return to Mississippi and attend Northwest Community College, then the University of Mississippi, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in social work.

While attending college, Gilliom became pregnant with her first child. She then decided to focus on braiding hair full time and started selling extensions.

Gilliom said that at this point she considered it a formal business and had spoken with a cousin about opening a salon together. First of all, they had to think of a simple but unique name and they came up with Chic Creations.

“[Chic] stylishly and elegantly fashionable means, ”said Gilliom. “You think of beautiful, stylish and fashionable hair. It’s simple and you can basically put anything under the umbrella.

Plans for this joint venture collapsed when Gilliom married and moved to Granada in 2016, but she still had the name and was determined to open her store. Gilliom searched for properties in Granada and found what she thought was the perfect location in January 2020.

She saved money, posted a bond, and bought herself the storefront on her 29th birthday in June 2020. During the remodel, Gilliom was heartbroken to learn that the building was having problems with it. flood that the owner did not disclose to him.

“I was devastated because I bought it for myself, I saved the money, I renovated and paid the rent,” she said. “If everything was flooded, I would shut down and lose everything I worked hard for.”

Gilliom decided to let the building go and found another location and started renovating, when she left Grenada and returned home in March 2021. The move used up most of her savings. hesitant to take another chance.

“I knew that looking at the situation, I probably shouldn’t be doing it,” said Gilliom. “But I had enough faith and enough work and I was drawn into the building. I had to do it because why wait? So I ended up taking a huge leap of faith.

Gilliom has already hired stylists and professionals who will occupy booths and provide services as part of their business and have fully furnished their space. Gilliom tried not to focus on making everything completely perfect, but she pushed herself to be ready for the business she had been waiting for.

“I’m definitely, definitely, really enjoying the moment,” she said.

Grenada: The island of Grenada will launch a nomadic program in October which will allow long-term visitors to work remotely from the destination.

Last week, while addressing tourism media at a press conference hosted by the Caribbean Tourism Organization, Cherisse Hamid, the new sales and marketing director of the Grenada Tourism Authority, noted that the program would last 12 months.

This program will also have a concierge service to help families settle on the island. Hamid added, “We want them to come to our country with us and share their knowledge and time with us and be fully immersed in our communities. These projects could include – tree planting, lionfish hunting, reef cleaning and, for health professionals, volunteering at health centers.

All entering must be fully vaccinated and must present a negative RT-PCR test performed three days before arriving in Granada. All travelers need a Pure Safe Travel certificate.

By launching this program, Grenada will join other Caribbean nations such as – Saint Lucia, Montserrat, Dominica, Cayman Islands, Curaçao, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda and Barbados.. This will ultimately help the island country to attract more tourists, which will help the country accelerate the process of economic recovery that the COVID-19 outbreak has hit hard.

Barbados was the first to introduce this concept to the region with its Welcome Stamp.

This may prove to be a “good step” to improve Grenada’s tourism sector, which will help the development of the island country, as it is one of the nation’s main sources of income.

According to statistics, there are a total of 4,356 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 mutant, while a total of 75 people have lost their lives due to the COVID-19 mutant in Granada. The effective management of the Grenadian government has helped put pressure on the nation’s deadliest mutant.

(MENAFN- Caribbean News Global) By JK Roberts

Grenada is a God-conscious nation and due to the inherent belief and reliance on prayers in times of trouble, many citizens would instinctively and casually accept the government statement of September 15, 2021, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 as “National days of spiritual reflection. ”, To signify that these days are dedicated to“ supplication and intercession ”prayers.

Christians often refer to biblical promises instructions as in 2 Chronicles 7:14, Psalms 46: 1, Psalms 50:15 and Philippians 4: 6. Nevertheless; this may not be the objective and the intention of the powers that be. Therefore, to foster “unity of purpose and spirit” towards effectiveness, much clarification is needed on the term “spiritual reflection”.

“In recognition of the critical role of spirituality in managing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic”, are these designated days to be used primarily to remember and examine the extent of the presence and power of the Covid-19? Church in the struggle so far, and to reflect and stimulate relevant strategies to advance the challenges? Moreover, should we expect appropriate action from the government, based on the findings and resolutions of the opportunities of the day?

It would be very disappointing to conclude that the statement on spiritual reflection is an “unintentional afterthought” of the government. In particular, it seems that there was no attention to the councils of the Churches for solemn reconciliations and prayers, but that the declaration was brought about in reaction to the “daring, passionate and energetic” stance of Mgr. Easter Baptist. The representative of the International Pentecostal Assemblies “accuses the powers that be” of moving away from God and attempting to save lives without taking a holistic approach, including consideration of the contributions of the Church.

She was part of a religious panel on the Grenada Broadcasting Network’s prime time “Beyond The Headlines” program on September 13, 2021, discussing ” Calm our fears ”Given the worrying increase in positive tests and endemic deaths

There is the recognition that indeed all human capacities come from God (Prov. 2: 6) and that all human effort is necessary for survival (James 2:26) however, governments must not be missed. overall tend to follow science to the exclusion of God, so can try it as a last resort when man reaches all limits, such as in the fight against the deadly virus.

The encouragement of the Minister of Religious Affairs, Emmalin Pierre, for all Grenadians, including those in the diaspora, to go before God as a nation “in reflection and prayer”, does it really act as an auxiliary dimension to the? various calls from Prime Minister Keith Mitchell for the demonstration of “moral responsibility” of each individual in the fight against the coronavirus, COVID-19?

In his national speeches of March 31, 2021 and September 3, 2021, Mitchell stressed that those in positions of leadership and influence must “do the right thing for our people and our country…. protect our future amid the many uncertainties of today’s global environment. He carefully clarified, “I call on all leaders in the community – religious, business, labor, political, sports, cultural, social and other media influencers – just about anyone with a sphere of influence over n ‘ any sector of society, please let us put personal and organizational differences aside and unite to work to promote and achieve the behavior change that will ultimately protect our people … “

He should not be seen as rude and ill-advised, as well as indifferent and non-compliant, for conscious Grenadians to ask thought-provoking questions with reasonable proposals, on the declarations and procedures of the powers-that-be.

  • Is the advocated behavior change simply related to concerns of having herd immunity with the dictated vaccination against the dreaded virus, and that the goal of spiritual reflection is to get citizens to become sober and seek the divine help to effect this change in behavior?
  • Who and what decides what, how and how to “set aside personal and organizational differences”?
  • Should the people be so naive and docile to be content with “limited peace and unity”, with the red flag “we are tried and resilient”, even in the midst of turmoil, irregularities and uncertainties perceived in the management of the crisis locally?
  • In fact, should national calamities such as the current health problem be the “one reason” to bring citizens together and agree to return to wars, crime, pain and injustice after recovery?

If it is appropriate to congratulate “the religious community for its leadership” and to encourage “the members with the words of Scripture to be steadfast, unshakable and ever abundant in the work of the Lord”, it is even of the most high importance for the political leadership as “national chief executive” to get into serious thoughtfulness and to set the tone and example engaged for “behavior change” and “moral responsibility”.

The referenced text, 1 Cor. 15:58, should also raise the conscience and obligation of political leadership; to ensure that their work is “of the Lord” to the nation (Prov. 29: 2). Very often many people reflect on the motive and merit of these public officials in citing the scriptures, as well as the form of spirituality they revere and to which they apply the scriptures. As explained in the previous article posted on the Internet “Granada National Day of Prayer 2020: Was it true or in vain? “; there are two “absolutely opposite” supernatural forces or spirits in the universe, which are the spirit of God representing good and the spirit of Satan representing all that is evil.

The spiritual reflection promoted should result in a clear and “renewed” conscience for everyone, but critically for religious pastors and political leadership. The result should be a genuine wish on the part of these key national figures that beyond September 25-26 “to always have a conscience free from offense to God and to men” (Acts 24:16 & Heb. . 13:18); they had been vigilant and eager to have “renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, neither walking in cunning, nor manipulating the word of God with deceit” (2 Cor. 4: 2 & Heb. 10:22).

Everyone should be aware that the process of healing towards unity and cooperation is not arbitrary and spontaneous, since its ingredient of respect and trust is built on records of reputation that the Bible broadly supports, as exemplified in Prov. 25: 19-20 and 26: 24-26. “Confidence in an unfaithful man in times of trouble is like a broken tooth and a crumbling foot. Like one who takes off a garment in cold weather, and like vinegar on the nitre, so is he who sings songs with a heavy heart. … He who hates conceals with his lips, and stores up deception in him; When he speaks rightly, do not believe him, for there are seven abominations in his heart. Whose hatred is covered by deception, his wickedness will be shown to the whole assembly. “

At this point, it is instructive to recall and make current and relevant the message delivered by Bishop Harvey of the Roman Catholic Church on May 17, 2020, a National Day of Prayer dedicated to thanksgiving over the epidemic. He stressed that true thanksgiving always begins with truth and humility and that the event should not be taken to manipulate God but rather to come into harmony with Him who is almighty, all Holy and in very rhythm of the universe. The religious leader spoke of the human obligation to reach out and share with the “ordinary poor” in distress, especially in this period of socio-economic inconvenience.

What’s more; he expressed the need to learn from the entire COVID-19 episode to adjust to the future “new normal” while exercising faith in God. Was this message valued?

The specter of “abnormal problems” that the Covid-19 pandemic reveals on an international scale, greatly surrounds the negative psychological effects. Navigating these issues requires sobriety, serenity, initiative, empathy, reassurance, guidance and motivation, even in uncharted waters. The risk of contracting the raging virus; containment to curb its spread; the shock, isolation and stigma associated with being tested positive; and the deprivation, ostracism and mockery of those who hesitate to be vaccinated or not to be vaccinated breeds fear and depression among the population.

The nature and intensity of uncontrolled fears can contribute to death statistics, especially in people with highlighted medical conditions. Those in power locally should know that a significant reduction in stress and anger levels, along with a positive and peaceful inclination and the exercise of unreserved trust in God, strengthens the body’s immunity. The frantic and intimidating presentations make the situation worse.

The harsh reality highlighted by health officials that the medical establishment is poorly equipped, that an ethics committee will be in place to decide who will be given priority to receive medical treatment, that many people will die from the virus, and that the arrival of the number of containers for the collection of corpses was inevitable would further explain the project of spiritual reflection in the nation. Any fear tactic adopted in the interest of vaccination against the virus inherently promotes the fear factor; and in this sense, the need for personal communion with his God for hope against the plague and for the life of their souls beyond the earth.
