Skrtel rescues Liverpool against Arsenal, Sunderland win derby

Martin Skrtel celebrates after heading in a late header from Steven Gerrard's corner to deny Arsenal.

By Martyn Herman

A stoppage time goal by a heavily-bandaged Martin Skrtel spared Liverpool another deflating defeat as they drew 2-2 at home to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

Inferior for most of the match, Arsenal had led with goals from French duo Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud after Philippe Coutinho had put the hosts deservedly ahead.

However, Skrtel, who required six minutes of treatment on a head wound, thundered in a late header from Steven Gerrard’s corner...

Gunman with possible revenge in mind kills two NYC police officers

Police officers stand outside Woodhull Hospital as the bodies of two Police officers who were shot in Brooklyn are removed from the hospital in New York, New York

By Sebastien Malo and Ellen Wulfhorst

A gunman ambushed and fatally shot two New York City police officers on Saturday and then killed himself, police said, and a social media post indicated it may have been in revenge for the police chokehold death of an unarmed black man.

If the killings do turn out to have been motivated by the death of Eric Garner, they could inflame tension over race and law enforcement that have dogged New York City Mayor...

A climate of mistrust

feature bejay - Savvas Vergas

By Bejay Browne

PAPHOS LOCALS have expressed a mixture of shock, betrayal and world weary cynicism over the alleged level of official corruption that has been exposed in recent weeks.
The atmosphere is one of uncertainty and dismay as revelations implicate officials from all major parties, with the squandering of public funds reportedly running into millions of euros.
Whatever their response, residents are united that all those found guilty should serve prison time and public money repaid.

Our View: Parties’ brazen dishonesty shames the state

AKEL's Andros Kyprianou

EVERY time the political parties decide to supposedly protect the people we do not know whether to laugh or cry. Neither reaction would be out of place because foolishness is often entertainingly funny, but it could also have long-lasting, harmful consequences.

Last Thursday in the House was one of those days, the majority of our deputies deciding that they should pretend to protect primary residences from “mass” repossessions by approving a bill that would suspend the implementation of the...

Tales from the Coffeeshop: All possibilities of exploitation being considered

It has been a testing week for Sheikh Lakkotrypis

By Patroclos

COMMERCE minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis lost his swagger on Friday when it was officially announced that the drilling by ENI-KOGAS in bloc 9 found no hydrocarbons and all his plans for the future had to be changed.

But to his credit he kept a brave face, speaking to the cameras on Friday afternoon and later sitting at the glass coffee table in the CyBC’s cocktail-bar-style news studio sharing his thoughts with the delectable news presenter Vivienne Kanari. You half...

The referee brave enough to take on the establishment

referee

By Constantinos Psillides

Marios Panayi, 34, has blown a lot of whistles since he became a referee back in 1999 but none like the one he blew this week about match fixing on the island. On Wednesday the international referee gave a press conference, announcing to the world that he would go to police with evidence to shock the football world to its core.

While declining to go into specifics, Panayi did point the finger at Cyprus Football Association (CFA)...

Hunting just spoils things

Just reflecting on our holiday with my grand children for the second time near Argaka, both during October. However during our visit to the wonderful site of Kourion the peace and tranquility was spoilt by men with dogs and guns below us near to the sea.

We then became aware of shooting around our area, and on subsequent visit to Nicosia, a car parked next to the motorway filled with hunting guns.

It’s sad that these actions can spoil the...

No real punishment for killer drivers

I would like to express my opinion and concerns on the recent increase in Cyprus road deaths and serious injuries.

There is no doubt that Cyprus has one of the highest number of road deaths in Europe, in proportion to its tiny population.

Despite the police always commenting on road deaths and launching random and scattered campaigns to better the statistics it seems to come to no avail.

In my opinion the main problem comes down to the absence of...
