It weighs on me to look over the ravine, because I know the end is near, especially with this injury.“I’ve tasted what it means to be away from the squad, and I know it’s going to hurt me when I stop doing this job.“Whether that’s six months, a year, or three years, time is running out on my career.“This is the most serious injury of my career, it’s a cartilage problem, I’ve suffered a serious injury. It would be very serious if I were to tear it again at 35.“It takes time, I’ve started running and kicking the ball but I’m still behind.“The future? I have this dream of being a Coach, and if I have to think about all the things a Coach has to do what scares me most is doing 100 interviews a week!” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

As a person, he has this fire in him – everything is done to the full,” Finland international Toivo told the Manchester Evening News.”I think he is great at creating fighting spirit in the team and encouraging players to be the best they can be. He has a lot of knowledge about football and understands the game really well.”There was a lot of concentration on first touches and observing the play with Mark in training: where and how you took the first touch. He played as a midfielder when he was a player and he often said ‘play what you see’. By that, he also meant to keep it simple and to not try difficult stuff.”He was really like a friend. He’s a guy who loves to tell stories and jokes and loves to make people laugh and play pranks.” last_img read more

first_imgWolves captain Coady: Past week among best of careerby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves captain Conor Coady says the past week was one of the best of his career.The men in old gold won three matches in nine days going into the international break, including eye-catching victories at Besiktas and Manchester City. Coady told the club’s website: “We won’t forget it. It was an amazing week for this football club, we beat Watford, went to Besiktas and put the effort in with such a small squad, and then went to the home of the champions and put in a brilliant performance.“It was massive for us because a lot of people spoke, saying how we started slow, but we were learning. A lot of players haven’t played in the Europa League before, we’ve had an awful lot of games, and the most important thing was we were listening to the manager after every game and learning. We’ve got a break, which we need, but we’ll move on as soon as possible.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgLegislation aimed at improving the management of public debt was passed on November 30 in the Senate. The Public Debt Management Act will repeal the Loan Act of 1964 and several enactments related to the raising of loans by the Government. Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, who opened the debate, explained that while the existing legislative framework establishes some of the basic principles governing public debt, it does not include a comprehensive regime of public debt management based on modern best practices. “It is therefore intended to introduce a single law that will, among other things, set out clear objectives for the management of public debt; mandate the preparation of a public debt management strategy (to be presented annually to Parliament); prescribe a framework within which decision making will be made on the management of public debt; and establish accountability and reporting requirements,” Senator Golding said. He said that under the Act, there will be no set debt ceiling; instead, provisions will be made for loan ceilings to be prescribed from time to time by Ministerial Order subject to affirmative resolution of the House of Representatives. “In prescribing the loan ceiling, the Minister of Finance will have to take account of and act in a manner that is consistent with the level of total debt specified in the fiscal responsibility framework,” he informed. The legislation also requires that a high level public debt management committee be established with a view to ensuring coherence among fiscal, monetary and debt policies. Senator Imani Duncan Pryce noted that the Bill brings to life, the fiscal responsibility framework that was passed a few years ago. “Too often, in the past, we find things off the balance sheet not reported and unknown to the people of Jamaica. What this particular Act does is give the Jamaican people the confidence that this Government is committed in taking bold steps in accountability and transparency for the betterment of Jamaica,” she stated. Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Senator Arthur Williams, while stating that the legislation was a “long time in coming,” pointed to the need to have the accompanying regulations in place to govern the various aspects of the Act.   “I am concerned that we have now come to actually introducing this important piece of legislation without any of the regulations that will make it effective and give it teeth,” Senator Williams said. In his response, Senator Golding said it is standard practice in modern legislation to create flexibility by empowering the Minister to make regulations on a variety of issues, which may arise. “Very often, under those enactments, regulations are never made or are made only to cover one or two aspects of the long list of things by which the power to make regulations exist. Regulations are made where they are necessary to operationalize the legislation,” Senator Golding said. He noted that in the case of this particular Act, 90 per cent of the important provisions do not require any regulations “to become meaningful, impactful and operational the day it comes into effect.” The Bill was approved without any amendments. It was passed in the House of Representatives on November 20.last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – The association that represents Canadian oil and gas drilling companies says it expects “muted stability” for the industry in 2018 despite recent strengthening in oil prices.The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors is calling for 6,138 wells to be drilled in its 2018 forecast, an increase of just 107 from the number expected to be drilled this year.It says the Canadian rig fleet is expected to shrink by 19 to a total of 615 next year as drilling contractors continue to struggle to find capital needed to keep older equipment running and reinvest in replacement rigs.Last month, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada said it also expects a slight recovery in drilling in Canada in 2018 versus this year but the count will still be 30 per cent lower than in 2014 when oil prices peaked at more than US$100 per barrel.New York-traded crude closed at US$56.42 per barrel on Monday, up from lows of less than US$43 in June.Alberta government-owned lender ATB Financial said Monday the energy sector has “stabilized” and will enjoy a modest rebound in activity next year, helping fuel 3.9 per cent provincial economic growth.last_img read more

first_imgCOPENHAGEN – A ferry with around 300 people on board was stranded in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday after the ship’s engine failed, the Danish operator said. No injuries were reported and an evacuation wasn’t immediately necessary.The breakdown aboard the Regina Seaways produced smoke, which triggered the ship’s fire extinguishing system in the engine room, Copenhagen-based DFDS Seaways said. The vessel was in international waters off Kaliningrad, Russia’s Baltic Sea exclave between Poland and Lithuania.“We are talking about a malfunction in the engine room that caused a lot of smoke,” DFDS spokesman Gert Jakobsen told The Associated Press. “Right now we are inspecting the engine room to find out whether the ship can sail on its own or needs to be tugged.”He said passengers had assembled at muster stations in preparation for a possible evacuation, but the “situation is under control.”The ferry, which also had cars and trucks on board, was travelling from Kiel, Germany to Klaipeda, Lithuania’s port city north of Kaliningrad. The crossing, one of DFDS’ many in the Baltic Sea region, normally takes about 20 hours.“On these kinds of crossings we have people from Germany, the Baltic countries and Russia. We cannot say now who was onboard,” Jakobsen said.The ship is about 85 kilometres (50 miles) from Klaipeda, said Vaidas Klumbys, another DFDS spokesman.He said that on Tuesday afternoon “we received the information from the ship that it was undergoing vibrations and smoke rising from the engines.”Russian state news agency Tass quoted Andrei Permyakov, head of the sea rescue co-ordinationcentre in Kaliningrad, as saying that rescuers from Lithuania, Russia and Poland responded.Lithuania’s navy said one of its helicopters and three navy vessels were sent to the site in case an evacuation was necessary. The regional news agency, Baltic News Services, quoted Klumbys as saying “the weather conditions are not good.”Forecasts for the southeastern part of the Baltic Sea said there were gale force winds, rain showers, poor visibility and risk of thunder storms in the region.Jakobsen wasn’t aware of any rescue operation, saying there was no evacuation.“But in this kind of situation, everyone steps in,” he said.The Regina Seaways was built in 2010 and can carry up to 500 passengers.___David Keyton in Stockholm, Liudas Dapkus in Vilnius, Lithuania, and Jim Heintz in Moscow, contributed to this story.___A previous version of this story was corrected to show that Kiel is in Germany, not Lithuania.last_img read more

first_imgTRIPOLI – Dozens of demonstrators gathered in central Tripoli on Friday to protest against Libya’s General National Congress extending its mandate until the end of 2014.An AFP correspondent said the protesters gathered in Martyrs Square to chant slogans against Monday’s move.In July 2012 Libyans chose the GNC in their first free election after rebels overthrew and killed Moamer Kadhafi, ending his 40-year dictatorship. The body was given 18 months to steer the country through the political transition towards general elections, to be held after a constitution was adopted.Under that timetable, the mandate of the GNC, Libya’s highest political authority, was due to expire in February.But on Monday GNC spokesman Omar Hmeidan said the assembly had accepted the “principle… to fix the end of the mandate for December 24, 2014 to hand over power to another legislative body.”On Friday the demonstrators chanted “No to an extension!” and “If you extend we will bring another revolution!”The political class opposes any extension, deeming it necessary to push ahead with the transition in order to build sustainable institutions to counter the chronic security problems plaguing the country.last_img read more

While numbers were down in child abuse offenses for last year; the Department of Social Services still held a parents’ workshop aimed at giving families the clues to detecting abuse. The Department of Social Services says in the past four years, crime reports expose that the abuse tends to fluctuate around 30 reports a year… but in 2013 that number surged to 39; higher than the number of reports for 2012 which were at 28. These types of cases are often left off of the annual police crime statistics report due to the so called sensitive nature of the offenses, but Social Services confirms that in 2012, there were three cases of cruelty to juvenile, one case of incest, nine indecent assault reports, three reports of rape and even one report of kidnapping. While 2013 saw four reports of buggery, six cases of cruelty to juvenile, 11 cases of indecent assault, one case of indecent assault on a male, two rapes and 15 cases of unlawful carnal knowledge.

first_img-30- Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 2, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. Peter Turnquest said that Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionise the way business is done in The Bahamas.During the “Understanding Blockchain Technology Applications: What You Need to Know” workshop hosted by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) at Baha Mar Convention Centre, Wednesday, January 31, 2018, the DPM added that Blockchain technology has the ability to propel the country in a really dramatic way from where it is today to being a true leader in terms of technology and the way business is done as well as the ease of doing business.The workshop was facilitated by Chris Jagers and Natalie Smolenski from the Learning Machine Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  DPM Turnquest explained that with the Assistance of the IDB, he and several colleague Ministers toured the MIT Lab last year and saw the potential that the technology has for The Bahamas.“When a lot of people think of Blockchains, they think about cryptocurrency.  That is just one aspect of it.  That is something we are doing some research into to see how we will be able to capitalise on it.“More importantly than that is the way we can use this technology to improve the quality and efficiency of our daily lives.”He gave the illustration of the Government potentially using the technology to create electronic records that are “indisputable”, which would then lead to a system where records could be produced that individuals could carry around in the form of an electronic passport that they can take to any bank where they want to open an account.“If we had this electronic ID card if you will, you could walk into the bank, present your ID with your access code, they could look at your records, verify who you are via your information and away you go in minutes.  That is what we are talking about it.”As it stands now, he said it takes weeks or months for Bahamians and six to eight months for foreign nationals to open a bank account, which is “a very inefficient and frustrating process.”The DPM also noted that the Government is looking at how Blockchain technology can be useful in producing a proper land registry, employing it with companies registering with the government.“There are a whole host of opportunities that exist as a result of this technology and we want to explore it all and take our country to the cutting edge.”IDB Country Representative, The Bahamas Florencia Attademo-Hirt explained that emerging technologies like Blockchain have been making waves all over the world in recent years.She said, “Very simply put, Blockchain is a digital technology able to store and transport valuable information and assets securely.“Blockchains were first used to record transactions of digital money (cyrptocurrencies), but since those early days, there have been other uses and applications of this technology.”Mrs. Attademo-Hirt noted that Blockchain technology has the ability to manage a large amount of data accurately allowing for it to not be tampered or altered, and could be either very transparent or confidential.“In The Bahamas, we think we can apply blockchain to a number of areas beyond cyrptocurrencies or even the Financial Sector.”She said one of the goals of the workshop was to convince stakeholders as well as get their feedback on the usefulness of Blockchain Technology in The Bahamas in the area of sovereign citizen security and justice, in particular the information that is being handled by the justice system.  Another goal was to see if the technology could be used for education and training in the sense of keeping records and diplomas available and making them easily accessible to their owner of the records, employers and learning institutions.Mrs. Attademo-Hirt said they really also want to establish how useful it would be for land title registration.“We would really like you to give us your ideas even if you feel like Blockchain might not work for The Bahamas, if you feel that it is not the solution, if you are afraid of using the technology, if you fear people need to be trained in a way that they will not be able to.“We will like to hear all of your thoughts and your feedback to make sure that whatever investment that we do moving forward using this or other technologies, it is relevant to your country, helps improves lives in your country and helps Bahamians have a better prospect for their future,” Mrs. Attademo-Hirt said.center_img CaptionsDeputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon.

first_imgIndia’s biggest automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) is all set to establish its fourth assembly line in Gujarat to attain its sales target of two million units by 2020.MSI’s parent company, Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC), which owns manufacturing units, will make investments into augmenting capacity, the Economic Times reported. The move aims to strengthen the carmaker’s leadership status in the country’s automotive landscape.The company is likely to invest a whopping Rs 3,000 crore to build its new production unit. The fourth production line will take Suzuki’s total installed capacity to a million units in Gujarat, ET reported.”(At) the Gujarat facility which Suzuki has set up, the first line of 250,000 units has already been commissioned, and work is going on with the second and third lines that will increase the Gujarat plant capacity to 750,000 units in 2-3 years. The fourth line of similar capacity (250,000 units per annum) is presently under review,” Maruti Suzuki Chairman R C Bhargava said.Speaking on increasing manufacturing capacity, Bhargava told the business daily that the pace of growth will ensure that the company attains its target of selling 2 million cars annually in 2020. Sales are expected to rise further to 2.5 million vehicles every year in next 2-3 years, he said. Presently, MSI manufactures around 1.5 million cars from two plants in Haryana. Maruti SuzukiReutersLast week, Bhargava lauded the government’s electric vehicle push and said the company plans to release models based on customer preferences. Speaking at the company’s 36th annual general meeting (AGM) he said the move could greatly enhance the usage of electric vehicles in the country and lead to a cleaner environment over time.Earlier on Thursday, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has sent a clear message to automobile manufacturers to move to alternative fuel vehicles. Auto companies will have to move to vehicles that run on electricity, biodiesel, ethanol and compressed natural gas “whether they like it or not”, Gadkari said.In April, Suzuki had announced joining hands with Toshiba and Denso to set up a plant in India to produce lithium ion batteries, with an investment of nearly Rs 1,200 crore, ET reported.The auto major has around 50 percent of the market share in the Indian passenger vehicle segment.

COPY LINKAD Loading … The Israeli-led demolition took place a month after the Supreme Court of Israel ruled in favour of the military in a dispute which involved violation of a construction ban. The seven-year legal fight ended in June and the residents of the community were given a deadline for eviction on July 18, Friday.The ruling was contested by Palestinians who said that the act will propel demolitions in other towns along the separation wall which runs for hundreds of kilometres. Residents also claimed that the ruling was flawed. “I built this house stone by stone. It was my dream to live in this house. Now I am losing everything,” resident Fadi al-Wahash told Reuters.Israeli Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said that the residents were “making their own law” despite orders from the military commander by building “illegal structures.””To my regret, there is no sufficient governance there. But it is not just that there are hundreds of structures there — several dozens of them sit almost on the route of the separation fence, endangering the security forces that operate there,” Erdan told Israel’s Army Radio.However, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said that demolitions were forced displacements and that Palestinians would complain to the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding the matter.”The cabinet condemns this grave aggression. This is a continuation of the forced displacement of the people of Jerusalem from their homes and lands — a war crime and a crime against humanity,” Shtayyeh said.Palestinian authorities have said that the buildings in Wadi al-Hummus region come under the Palestinian Authority and civilian control under the 1993 Oslo Accords.The Palestine Liberation Organization issued a statement before the Israeli judgement in June that accused the Israeli government “to set a precedent to enable the Israeli occupying forces to demolish numerous Palestinian buildings located in close proximity” to the separation wall.International protestsThe United Nations humanitarian coordinator, Jamie McGoldrick, and other UN officials tried calling Israeli authorities last week to halt the plans to conduct demolition in the region.European Union also issued a statement on the issue and said: “The continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for lasting peace.”While Palestinians have claimed that the move is a state-sponsored effort to grab its territory, Israel court claimed that the buildings could provide cover for Palestinian suicide bombers and attackers due to its proximity with the West Bank barrier.The Israeli West Bank barrier, projected to be 720km long when complete, is said to be a security barrier against terrorism. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said that the contentious barrier on the occupied territory was “contrary to international law”, according to an advisory issued in 2004. The Complicated History of Palestine and Israel Close Israeli machinery demolished Palestinian houses in the village of Sur Baher on July 22.ReutersHundreds of Israeli troops began demolishing Palestinian homes near the Israeli West Bank barrier on Monday July 22, drawing criticism and protests from international communities. The demolishing took place in Sur Baher, a Palestinian village in the disputed Wadi al-Hummus region close to the Israeli West Bank barrier. Israel officials have considered the settlements as a threat to regional security.The surrounding village residents of Wadi al-Hummus told local media that 16 residential buildings, including 100 apartments were bulldozed on Monday morning.”They have been evacuating people from their homes by force and they have started planting explosives in the homes they want to destroy,” Hamada Hamada, a community leader, told Reuters.last_img read more

They’ve just announced that half of next season’s shows are being switched out.“One of the things that was a bit bothersome for me about the previously announced season was that there were shows on it that had not only been produced here but had been produced often and in recent memory,” Epps says, adding that his intent for the Houston-based musical theater company is to reach an audience that represents the area’s diversity. He’s replacing Grease with In the Heights, cutting Shrek and adding Into the Woods, and replacing Jesus Christ Superstar with Dreamgirls.But how will the subscribers – which number about 4,000 – feel about the changes?“I’m hoping that even though change is sometimes difficult to adjust to, that it’s change for the better and people will be happy about that,” he says.But for any subscribers who are not happy with the changes, TUTS says they’ll refund their money.Epps came into TUTS in the wake of what some have described as drama within the organization, which has undergone swift and unexpected leadership changes over the past few months.But Epps is more concerned with the future.“Frankly, my focus is not on what has occurred in the past, but where TUTS is going,” he says.The California native’s acting career began at the Alley Theater in Houston after college. For the past 20 years, he’s served as artistic director of the Pasadena Playhouse in California.He says another interest is creating a “Second Stage Series,” which would involve bringing in additional shows specifically for the Hobby Center’s smaller stage. The organization has not made an announcement of their plans for TUTS Underground, the company’s series known for its edgier, more contemporary productions. Epps says they’ll have more information for the public in early July. X Share 00:00 /02:00last_img read more

first_imgListen X Share – / 3Every year, more than 250 local artists donate a couple of pieces for the Art on the Avenue auction. The event, now in its 20th year, raises money to help create affordable housing in Houston.But the artists benefit, too.“I’ve sold something every year,” says Marlo Saucedo, who’s taken part in the show for 10 years. “Most of the time, I’ve sold both pieces.”The auction is hosted by the Avenue Community Development Corporation and differs from some of the other typical art auctions out there.“We also share proceeds with the artists so we’re not really trying to just tap the artist for a full donation like a lot of other benefits do,” says Curator Tami Merrick.They’re expecting to raise more than $250,000 during this year’s event. And the effort to create affordable homes and apartments isn’t just for families. Avenue has helped develop the Elder Street Artist Lofts just west of downtown.  “That’s giving artists in the community an affordable place to live and work,” says the organization’s Executive Director Mary Lawler. “So, it’s really helping to contribute to this overall arts district that the Washington Avenue area has become.”The Art on the Avenue charity auction is Saturday night at Winter Street Studios in Houston’s First Ward. 00:00 /01:19 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more
