Satar was ordered to remain quiet while one of the bandits removed $433,000 from his pocket and relieved him of a gold chain he was wearing. He said the men demanded his car keys, and quickly exited the shop and entered the car. They then drove away. The businessman rushed outside crying for help, and a villager who knew him went to his aid.They followed the bandits into Black Water Dam, which took them into the backlands where the bandits abandoned the car and crossed a trench. According to the businessman, one of the bandit’s masks fell off and he was able to recognise him. He said the men realised they were being followed and fired several shots in his direction.The car was recovered, and the Police were contacted.

There is also the issue of potential harm to the players,” said Juventus director Beppe Marotta.Six-time defending champions Juventus are a point behind leaders Napoli, who play Cagliari in Sardinia on Monday.Up to five centimetres of snow fell in 55 minutes, an hour before the scheduled 1700GMT kickoff.The covers were removed from the pitch two hours before the game to allow for routine tests on goal-line technology and the video assistant referee (VAR). Both sides continued their warm-ups despite the adverse conditions and the game had looked set to start but following a final survey it was decided it could proceed in sub-zero temperatures.Juventus said another date would be announced shortly, with the team’s crowded calendar making Wednesday, March 14 a possibility.Juventus play Atalanta in the Italian Cup semi-final, return leg next Wednesday in the Allianz Stadium, before travelling to Rome for next weekend’s Serie A game against Lazio.Massimiliano Allegri’s side then travel to Wembley on March 7 having been held 2-2 by Spurs in the last 16 first leg clash in Turin last week.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Juventus’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon (C) and Atalanta’s defender Rafael Toloi (L) look on as Italian referee Maurizio Mariani checks the conditions © AFP / ALBERTO PIZZOLITurin, Italy, Feb 25 – Sunday’s Serie A game between champions Juventus and Atalanta in Turin was postponed because of blizzard-like conditions in northern Italy.Snow covered the pitch at Allianz Stadium with referee Maurizio Mariani and captains Gianluigi Buffon and Rafael Toloi deciding to call off the game.last_img read more

first_imgBut Zidane insists Bale had permission to be absent on Monday and Tuesday morning and that he is not aware the 30-year-old wants to be sold.“It was a personal issue and he had permission yesterday to go,” Zidane said in a press conference on Tuesday.“It was a personal issue and he went, that’s it, no story. He also went because he’s not available to play.“But I don’t think he ever speaks about leaving. When he is available he plays, that’s all there is to it.”Bale came close to a move to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last summer after Zidane said it would be “best for everyone” if he left Real Madrid.But the deal fell through at the last minute due to a disagreement over the transfer fee and Zidane is not expecting any fresh offers in January.– Unimpressed –“I don’t think there will be an offer and I haven’t thought about it either. Gareth is a Real Madrid player,” said Zidane.“What happened in the summer was the situation at the time and in the end Gareth stayed and all the better for everyone.“It’s true what was said didn’t help but for me the result is the most important thing. He’s an important player and it’s important he plays and he plays well.“If in January he says he’ll stay, there will be talk about the transfer window in the summer. Unfortunately people will always speak about these things but he’s here and everyone is happy he’s here.”Zidane claimed he has a “good relationship” with Bale but sources have told AFP the forward remains on bad terms with the Frenchman.Bale was particularly unimpressed by his omission from Madrid’s squad to face Club Brugge in the Champions League earlier this month.After the match, Zidane put his absence down to a fitness issue but those close to Bale insist he was fully fit.“I spoke to him and I spoke to James (Rodriguez). Both of them weren’t available to play against Brugge and they didn’t play,” said Zidane. “There’s nothing else to say about that.”Bale will miss Madrid’s La Liga game at home to Leganes on Wednesday, along with Nacho, who has a knee problem, and Marco Asensio, who is recovering from a anterior cruciate ligament injury.James Rodriguez is also unlikely to be involved as he missed training on Tuesday due to the birth of his child.Real Madrid are sixth in the table but only two points off the top, with a game in hand.0Shares0000(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s Welsh forward Gareth Bale plays against Granada in La Liga on October 5 © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMADRID, Spain, Oct 29 – Zinedine Zidane insists Gareth Bale was given permission by Real Madrid to travel to London on Monday, and claims the Welshman never talks about leaving the club.Bale has not played since injuring his calf during a game for Wales on October 13 and his trip to England has prompted speculation he will seek an exit from Madrid in January.last_img read more

first_img “For me, my program is down,” he said of Burroughs, which finished fifth in the six-team league this season. “But this is exciting to see these kids I’ve known for four years – I saw a lot when they were just beginning.” One of the league’s biggest success stories is Valencia senior White, who has improved dramatically since beginning as a lightweight freshman who had trouble hitting for distance. “When she started, if the wind blew she was in trouble,” Krose said. This year, White can consistently shoot 82 to 83 on a big course and was at her best last week when it counted most. She shot 4-over-par 80 Wednesday at Woodley Lakes in the league individual qualifying tournament to move past four players in the second round and grab the league’s final postseason berth. “She’s worked hard and she’s earned it,” said longtime area instructor Lee Breckenridge, who has coached White and most of the Valencia team since they were freshmen. “Tracy’s hitting the ball,” Krose said, “Michelle has really improved – you could tell all those lessons she took and all the hard work paid. To me, as an observer and a coach, I love to see these girls improve. “I know Valencia girls and Hart girls and a lot of the Saugus girls take a lot of lessons and work really hard. Saugus last year, with (current NCAA Division I golfers Melanie De Leon of Nevada and Stephanie Aston of Cal State Northridge), it was nice to see them, knowing them for four years.” Krose is one who thinks Hart and Valencia have the ability to contend for the area’s first Southern Section title in girls’ golf. “I’m happy to see it,” he said of the success of the league’s current powers. “Very jealous, but happy. But I’m happier than jealous. I try to impress upon my kids that they could be this much better if they really work hard.” Looking ahead: The top four teams in the Nov. 8 Northern Divisional field at River Ridge, which includes traditional Southern Section girls power Dos Pueblos, advance to the Nov. 10 section team final at Indian Hills Golf Club in Riverside. Other area teams at River Ridge – one of four regionals that will each advance four teams to the section final – include three-time consecutive Golden League champion Quartz Hill, traditional Marmonte League power Westlake and resurgent Thousand Oaks, which started league with an 11-1 record and could tie defending champion Westlake for the league title this week. Scholarship watch: Valencia senior Mannix and Quartz Hill senior Ali Erdman, who led the No. 7-ranked Rebels to a 15-3 overall record and undefeated league season, both have received NCAA Division I scholarship offers from UC Riverside.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Westlake, getting a 1-2 finish from Loy and Mannix, wound up winning the league title by a point after the two teams had split in the first four league matches – Hart winning the first two to come within a point of taking league before Valencia prevailed in three consecutive must-win situations. Both advanced, with third-place Saugus, to next week’s first round of Southern section team competition – the Nov. 8 Northern Regional at River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard. The competitive situation could hardly be better for Valencia and Hart – ranked No. 1 and No. 2 by the Daily News – in terms of preparing them for a run at the Southern Section title, something no area team has ever achieved but seems a realistic goal for both of them this year. “This is really exciting,” said Burroughs coach Mike Krose, a neutral observer who is thrilled at the way Hart and Valencia have raised the profile of an already strong league. “Valencia was a little bit down and Hart played really well the first two league matches. And Valencia’s performance in the third tournament was amazing (winning at El Cariso after Loy had to withdraw because of illness).” After Valencia won in the fourth tournament, at Vista Valencia, Krose sounded more like a golf fan than a golf coach: Foothill League champion Valencia (32-2) and league runner-up Hart (30-6) carry their season-long rivalry of excellence into postseason play this month, starting with the 18-hole Southern Section individual championship Friday at Diamond Bar Golf Club in Diamond Bar. League MVP Stevy Loy, league tournament champion Michelle Mannix and improved Stacy White will represent Valencia, and Tessa Harp will represent Hart in the section individual final, which starts at 8 a.m. and will advance the top 26 finishers to the Nov. 14 Southern California final. That 18-hole WSCGA Championship, co-sponsored by the California Interscholastic Federation and the Women’s Southern California Golf Association, will be played at SCGA Golf Club in Murrieta and is the final individual and team qualifier for the Nov. 16 state championship at PGA of Southern California Golf Club in Beaumont. Valencia and Hart, which met seven times in team competition this year, took their rivalry to the wire in the Foothill League before Valencia prevailed 205-218 last week in at Woodley Lakes Golf Course in Lake Balboa at the fifth and final league tournament of the year. last_img read more

first_imgFerrys – didn’t pay VATA CUT-price refuse company with convictions for illegal dumping has been forced to settle a massive Revenue bill for failing to pay all its VAT.Ferry’s Refuse Limited, with an address at Rossbracken, Manorcunningham, under-declared VAT of €193,141.The company was raided by Revenue officials as part of a wide-ranging investigation. Ferry’s – currently offering half-price refuse collection deals to customers in Donegal – had to pay interest of €23,693 on its VAT bill.It was also fined €57,942 for the default – and forced to pay an overall bill of €274,776.Last year the company’s owner Jim Ferry was fined €12,000, given a six month suspended sentence and ordered to pay costs of more than €30,000 to Donegal County Council.Ferry faced charges relating to the illegal disposal of household waste at Doire Uí Fríll, Falcarragh, on June 10, 2010. The case followed an extensive undercover investigation by Donegal County Council. At Letterkenny Court, Judge Paul Kelly was shown covert video recordings showing Ferry’s distinctive green and yellow bin lorry dumping waste in pre-excavated holes in a field across from his mother’s house in June 2010.A subsequent geophysical study found that an estimated 1,000 cubic metres of rubbish was buried in the area.The court heard that father of six, Jim Ferry, had previous convictions relating to illegal dumping. Judge Kelly said Ferry was “slow to appreciate the lesson.” He said the competition is cut throat across the country and “clearly competitors have an interest that everyone is playing on a level playing field.”The court also heard that Section 13 of the Waste Management Act allows for fines to be paid to the local authority. Judge Kelly asked that this be done.Caught: Ferry’s were caught at this illegal dump in Falcarragh CONTROVERSIAL BIN COMPANY FORCED TO PAY €275k FOR UNDER-PAYING TAXES was last modified: June 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:convictionsferry’s refuseillegal dumpersjim ferrylast_img read more

first_img14 July 2011 South African hospitality group Singita Game Reserves is now firmly at the top of the industry after walking off with the honours in the 2011 US Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards readers’ survey. Singita’s safari hotels and lodges were rated against top competition from around the world. Its Grumeti Reserves, situated close to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, came in at number one on Travel + Leisure World’s list of 100 top hotels. Also, Singita’s flagship Sabi Sand, located within the greater boundaries of the world-famous Kruger National Park, was ranked at number two. Sabi Sand features Singita’s original lodges, Singita Ebony and Singita Boulders, as well as the Singita Castleton, an exclusive-use facility. As if this wasn’t enough, the Singita Kruger National Park, overlooking the N’wanetsi River in the park’s northern region, rounded off the honours for the group by taking the 39th spot on the list, and was also named the best Hotel Spa in Africa and the Middle East. The Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards are given to top hotels, destinations, airlines, cruises, outfitters and transportation companies in the world. The winners are chosen by readers in a survey where they are rated on a scale of one to five, with five being excellent. The winners of this year’s survey, the 16th edition, were announced on 7 July on US television channel NBC’s Today Show. They were due to receive their awards at a ceremony in Los Angeles on 14 July.Practising modern conservation Singita Reserves’ chief marketing officer, Lindy Rousseau, said: “Singita today manages and is responsible for 570 000 acres in Africa. We operate ten lodges in four destinations in three countries.” The group practises so-called modern conservation, said Rossouw. She described the concept as “a finely tuned relationship between wildlife, local communities and tourism”. Singita is committed to tourism that delivers a high value but leaves a low impact on the environment, meaning that habitats are sensitively managed. As a result, animal populations are thriving in Singita areas. As an example, said Roussouw, a mere eight years ago hardly an animal was seen in Grumeti, but today it boasts the most prolific game populations in East Africa. “We spend more on wildlife projects and community development than anyone else,” said Rousseau. She expressed her gratitude at the honour of being voted a world leader by some of the most discerning travellers to be found anywhere.African splendour The results of the survey attest to the splendour of Africa’s natural scenery, the attraction of its great hospitability, and the enchantment it leaves on those who have travelled and stayed there. Singita describes the impact of its destinations on guests as “nothing short of life changing”. The group’s luxury lodges can be found in South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. In South Africa, the Singita Ebony and Singita Boulders lie within the world’s best leopard viewing area, while the Singita Castleton, a private six-roomed villa, is situated close to one of the most frequented waterholes in the Kruger National Park. Guests can spot the Big Five – lion; leopard; rhino; elephant and buffalo – at these locations. In Tanzania, home of the world’s best hotel; millions of wildebeest can be seen during the migration season as the hotel is located on a prime viewing site along the animals’ annual route. In Zimbabwe, Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve is a haven for endangered species like the black rhino. The reserve has a vast collection of baobab trees and offers breathtaking views of the Malilangwe Dam. Rousseau said: “When it comes to hotels, the new world order is very different from just five years ago. Today it is about authenticity, integrity and being real. I think this is why more and more guests identify with what we are doing.” First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more
