Mbappe: Lack of training not a problem for Neymar

first_imgKylian Mbappe has stated that a lack of training is not an issue for Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar.The Brazilian has managed just 57 minutes for the French champions in the past month after struggling wth adductor problems, but is expected to feature in their Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night.Partner in crime Mbappe, however, is unperturbed by his colleague’s lack of action.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Speaking before the game, he said: “We get along better and better we know each other more. I’m in a good position to talk about how important Neymar is, we’re lucky to have him on our team.“Tomorrow we will see all the quality he has to help us win, even if he has not trained much. But for a player like him it’s not a problem.”The French giants find themselves in a relatively precarious position heading into the final round of group stages matches, and know that only a win will mathematically guarantee qualification for the knockout stages.In all likelihood, a draw would also probably be enough to see them through, given their superior goal difference over third-placed Liverpool – provided Jurgen Klopp’s side don’t beat Napoli by five goals or more.A loss could be problematic for PSG, however, should the Reds beat their Italian visitors on Tuesday evening.Despite a faltering Champions League campaign, the French side have enjoyed a remarkable start to their domestic season, going 16 matches unbeaten and opening up a 13 point lead at the top of Ligue 1 before the halfway point.They have, however, drawn their past two matches, and had to rely on an Edison Cavan penalty to avoid a shock defeat at the hands of Strasbourg.Most recently, their cash with Montpellier was postponed as a result of the ‘Yellow Vest’ protests that have engulfed France over the past week. Violent clashes between protestors and police led to calls for the match, due to take place in the French capital, to be played on another date.This means that despite their unbeaten record remaining intact, PSG have not won a match since their 2-1 win over Liverpool at the end of November.last_img read more

Ball-tampering row: Steve Smith, David Warner dropped from Australia’s central contracts list

first_imgAfter receiving suspensions from Cricket Australia for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, former captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft were officially dropped from the cricket board’s central contracts list on Wednesday.In the 20-man list, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and fast bowlers Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson and Andrew Tye have been awarded central contracts with Cricket Australia for the first time as the team looks to focus on limited overs cricket over the next 12 months.Wicketkeeper Alex Carey, who made his international debut in both Twenty20 and one-day cricket earlier this year, was also given a central contract for the first time.Smith and Warner were both banned for 12 months, and Bancroft for nine months for colluding to rough up the ball with sandpaper during the third test against South Africa last month.All three have said they would accept the bans.Australia have a heavy limited-overs programme over the next 12 months, with the World Cup in England next June and July the focus, chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns said.”This period is set to include a significant amount of limited-overs cricket, including the … Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales,” Hohns said.”For that reason, there has been a bit of a focus in this contracting period on white-ball cricket, as we look ahead to trying to win back-to-back World Cups.”Batsman Shaun Marsh and wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who assumed the captaincy from Smith during the South African series, also return to the central list.advertisementFast bowlers Jackson Bird and Chadd Sayers, both of whom featured for the test team in the last six months, did not receive a central contract.Injured bowlers James Pattinson and Nathan Coulter-Nile both also missed out, but all four remain in contention for upgraded domestic contracts if they are called into the national side, Hohns said.”Jackson and Chadd have missed out on this occasion, but they remain in the frame for Australian honours moving forward and can be upgraded if selected,” Hohns said.”We would like to see both James and Nathan now put some consistent games together for their states.”They are both quality fast bowlers and we have no doubt that if they can play regularly and remain fit in the upcoming season, they will become very positive selection options for us.”(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more

PM Says Provision of Housing Enhances Prospects for Sustainable Economic Growth

first_imgStory Highlights The Prime Minister argued that owning real estate assets and transferring them from generation to generation is something “we can readily accept”, noting that it creates “intergenerational wealth… and the likelihood that the next generation will enjoy a better standard of living”. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says failure by regional leaders to provide housing for their citizens will inevitably undermine their prospects for sustainable economic growth. Mr. Holness implored the conference participants that as they think of the myriad factors needed to ensure that the region’s housing sector provides safe, legal and affordable housing, it is important to remember that “no one must be left behind”. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says failure by regional leaders to provide housing for their citizens will inevitably undermine their prospects for sustainable economic growth.Delivering the main address at the 2017 Regional Housing Conference at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, St. James, on October 18, Mr. Holness said owning a house is one of the biggest accomplishments any person can achieve, adding that the housing sector acts as “a catalyst for many other desirable social and economic outcomes”.“It is an avenue to greater wealth generation. It promotes job creation… enhances the sense of security and stimulates investment,” he said.The Prime Minister argued that owning real estate assets and transferring them from generation to generation is something “we can readily accept”, noting that it creates “intergenerational wealth… and the likelihood that the next generation will enjoy a better standard of living”.“All households being able to access affordable, appropriate and legal housing options in livable, vibrant, inclusive and aesthetically pleasing communities is, therefore, critical to the socio-economic fabric of any nation. If we fail to provide this for our citizens, we are essentially undermining any other growth strategies we pursue,” he said.Mr. Holness implored the conference participants that as they think of the myriad factors needed to ensure that the region’s housing sector provides safe, legal and affordable housing, it is important to remember that “no one must be left behind”.The Prime Minister reminded that the housing sector plan for Vision 2030 states that “ideally in the year 2030, every household should be living in a well-constructed dwelling unit”.“This vision of the housing-sector plan embodies the concept that housing represents a broad continuum of affordable and appropriate housing options relating to the incomes of targeted groups,” he explained.Mr. Holness emphasised that the housing sector must be reorganized to reflect the provision of housing units for the regular open market and the provision of housing for those who cannot afford housing units in this category.The Prime Minister said that by understanding this, prospective homeowners would now have an opportunity to own a home.“We must urgently deploy relevant policies and programmes to satisfy the number of intended beneficiaries demanding affordable, safe and legal housing solutions,” Mr. Holness continued.“In light of this, the National Housing Trust recently undertook a strategic review, so that they can more effectively and efficiently expand the opportunities for Jamaicans to own their homes using the standard legally accepted process of home and land ownership,” he added.Mr. Holness noted that the Economic and Social Survey of Jamaica 2016 shows that housing starts for 2016 were increased from 1,555 units to 3,024 units when compared with 2015.“The National Hosing Trust (NHT) is on track to do over 5,500 housing starts for 2017. The NHT’s four-year housing programme for April 2016 to March 2020 includes the thrust to start 15,000 housing solutions by March 2020,” he pointed out.The three-day Regional Housing Conference is being led by the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation and aims to identify practical solutions and industry best practices to resolve the challenges facing the Caribbean housing sector, particularly in the context of climate change and urbanisation.last_img read more

Moroccan Army Fifth Strongest in Arab World Report

Rabat – The Moroccan Army is the fifth strongest army in the Arab world, according to the Global Firepower Index, a ranking of 126 countries that compare the world’s militaries based on more than 50 factors, including budget, available manpower, military arsenal and access to natural resources.The 2015 Global Firepower Index ranked the Moroccan Army fifth in the Arab world preceded by Egypt in first place, Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Syria. Globally, the kingdom has progressed from the 65 position in last year’s ranking to 49 with a score of 1.243.Morocco, which is preceded by Argentina and Finland, comes ahead of the United Arab Emirates, Peru and Columbia. The report, which was released on Wednesday, highlights the capacities of the Moroccan Army, such as the land systems, air power and naval power. It also provides detailed information about the geography of Morocco, its financial situation, its demographics and natural resources.According to the report, Morocco uses a mix of old and new equipment, while having several hundred thousand active and reserve personnel on call.Morocco has 1,215 tanks, 2,348 Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs), 448 self-propelled Guns (SPGs), 192 Towed-Artillery and 72 Multiple-Launch Rocket Systems (MLRSs). The Kingdom also has 195,800 active frontline personnel and 150,000 active reserve personnel, the report added.The report shows that the US clearly leads the world in military spending with more than $500 billion a year. It is followed by Russia, China, India, the United Kingdom, France, South Korea, Germany, Japan and Turkey.The GFP list makes use of over 50 factors to determine each nation’s Power Index score (Pwrlndx).  Scores are judged on a perfect value of 0, 0000.The GFP ranking did not take into account the countries’ nuclear capabilities. It is based strictly on each nation’s potential conventional war-making capabilities across land, sea and air. The report said that some statistics have been estimated where official numbers are not publicly available. read more

UN food agency helps 10000 flood survivors in Ethiopia

Following devastating floods in eastern Ethiopia, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is rushing to assess the needs of an estimated 10,000 people left homeless by the disaster, which killed over 200 others. Once the assessment and registration is complete, survivors will immediately receive a food ration consisting of cereals, vegetable oil, vitamin and mineral enriched blended food and salt to last for one month, the Rome-based agency said in a news release. “Everyone appreciates the need to move quickly and to help people, many of whom have nothing but the clothes on their backs, in whatever way we can,” said Abnezer Ngowi, WFP Acting Country Director in Ethiopia. Thousands of people are camped out in temporary shelters as rescue workers use bulldozers and digging equipment to clear mud and sand dumped in Dire Dawa town and the surrounding areas after the Dechatu River burst its banks on Saturday night, the agency said. Some 220 people are known to have died, although officials say the death toll is likely to rise because more than 300 people are still reported missing. The floods swept away houses, vehicles and animals and destroyed markets and shops. “We have deployed logistics officers, field monitors and staff from our offices in Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa to assist our UN colleagues and the local administration in the relief effort,” said Mr. Ngowi. Heavy rainfall in Ethiopia often impacts neighbouring Somalia, and the agency’s officials there say they are on standby to help. “We are monitoring the situation very closely and are ready with relief assistance as needed,” said Leo van der Velden, WFP’s Acting Country Director for Somalia. read more

Boarding schools accused of washing their hands of pupils with anorexia charity

Boarding schools are “washing their hands” of pupils with anorexia by sending them home, a leading eating disorder charity has warned. Some of the country’s top academic institutions are accused of  “ignoring” signs of eating disorders among young people because they are “not properly equipped” to support them, after BEAT received reports from concerned pupils and parents. Tom Quinn, director of BEAT, a charity which supports people with eating disorders, said that far from helping aide the recovery of students, sending them home to their parents can in fact worsen their condition. “Either the schools deny that there is a problem or sometimes we found that when they realize there is a problem,… read more

Even Bronns Mailman Is Angry at Him After Last Sundays Game of

first_imgStay on target Nobody is a fan of Bronn anymore after the climactic battle scene in last week’s Game of Thrones. The scene was filled with harrowing moments, but Bronn’s final act almost definitely elicited the most gasps. With Daenerys riding atop Drogon, burning all the wheat in sight, Bronn raced to a covered structure. Throwing aside a sheet, he revealed a massive crossbow and arrow. One that could pierce the hide and bone of a dragon. The first shot missed, but the second hit the beast in the shoulder bringing both dragon and mother crashing to the ground.If you’ve been watching the series all the way through, chances are you feel almost as protective of the dragons as Daenerys does. They’re the only ones left in the world. Do NOT hurt the precious babies. The scene even surprised Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn on the show.Speaking to HBO’s Making of Game of Thrones, Flynn said, “I was surprised when I was watching it. I spent weeks on that sequence, but I was on the edge of my seat, the adrenaline was running — they really nailed it.”Until now, Bronn has been one of the more likable associates of the Lannisters. Much of that comes from his relationship to Tyrion, the only decent member of the family. But, as he is a mercenary, he has allied himself with Jaime so he may acquire as much gold and land as he can. Unfortunately, that means fighting against Tyrion’s new queen and doing some especially unsavory things like shoot adorable dragons out of the sky. And though it is just a TV show, that doesn’t make the anger people feel any less real. Some are even taking it out on Flynn himself.“Although since the day the battle aired, I’ve been a little unpopular, I have to say. My postman won’t speak to me because I shot the dragon,” he said. Totally understandable. He’s lucky he’s still getting his mail at all, if you ask me.Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jerome Flynn (Credit: Macall B. Polay/HBO)Flynn does appear to enjoy the fact that the audience is that invested in the show. Talking about fans being torn on who to root for in this messy war, he said, ”How brilliant is that? And that’s Tyrion’s perspective, standing there. He’s got Daenerys when she gets shot down, and then his brother is who’s trying to kill her; Tyrion can’t win, really. But that’s part of the brilliance of where we’ve got to in the story after seven years of that character investment.”So where does Bronn go from here? Well, things don’t sound too promising. HBO asked if fans should worry about Bronn’s fate, and though he didn’t say much, his answer seemed to hint at something. “I think it depends on if you care for him. If you’re really angry, he’s been shooting at Drogon, then maybe not.”Hmm, interesting. The last shot we saw in that episode was Jaime sinking into the water after Bronn pushed him out of the way of Drogon’s fire. Is it possible that he was caught in the blast? The good news is, we only have two days until we find out.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… last_img read more

Alaskas House majority weighs whether to hold open caucus meetings

first_imgThe Alaska House of Representatives entrance in the Capitol in Juneau, Feb. 6, 2015. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Last year, when most Democrats were in the minority in the Alaska House of Representatives, they held regular caucus meetings that were open to the public before voting in sessions on the House floor.Listen nowMost of the Democrats who were out of power last year will be in the majority this year. But it’s not clear whether the majority caucus will hold these pre-session open meetings.Rep. Paul Seaton is a Republican who was in the majority last year and remains in the majority after he switched caucuses this year. He said the new majority will have an open approach.“The majority generally doesn’t hold pre-session caucus [meetings],” Seaton said. “If a smaller group of legislators want to get together and talk, that’s one thing. But the majority should have their discussion in public on the floor of the House.”The new majority caucus includes 17 Democrats, three Republicans and two independents. Coalition spokesman Mike Mason said the caucus plans to meet in the coming days to decide whether it will hold open caucus meetings.Seaton said early Wednesday that he does not expect the new majority to hold pre-session open meetings. Later in the day, Mason said the caucus hadn’t decided yet.After being told Seaton’s remarks (but before Mason amended them), incoming House Minority Leader Charisse Millett said she sees a contrast between what the Democrats did in the minority and what Seaton said the new majority would do.“The Democrats are the ones that actually screamed the loudest about it … being a violation of the closed caucus,” Millett said.Millett, an Anchorage Republican, said the last year’s Republican-led majority held weekly meetings to discuss strategy, but they didn’t decide the outcomes of votes. Millett said that means they didn’t violate the Open Meetings Act.In fact, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that state’s Open Meetings Act doesn’t apply to the Legislature, and in 1994, the Legislature added an explicit exemption for itself.Millett doesn’t oppose closed caucus meetings, but she said it would raise concerns if the Democrats changed course.“They’ve done a lot of philosophical bending so they can be in the majority and hold power,” Millett said. “Any time that you have a group of people willing to compromise their core beliefs to get power, I just don’t see a real good outcome of that.”Juneau Democrat Beth Kerttula led open caucus meetings when she was House minority leader from 2007 to 2014. She said it fit in with the state’s traditions.“It’s a hallmark of the Alaska Legislature, that actually, its business is done in public and so much of it is transparent … compared to other states,” Kerttula said.Kerttula added that closed meetings are appropriate on rare occasions. She said the majority caucus members are “finding their way.”Neither caucus has decided whether their caucus meetings will be open or closed. Millett said the Republican minority would discuss it at a retreat this weekend.last_img read more

Tata Steel confirms facing criminal inquiry by UK Serious Fraud Office

first_imgTata Steel confirmed media reports that it is facing a criminal investigation by British Serious Fraud Office (SFO) for “certain inappropriate testing and certification procedures” at its South Yorkshire-based Speciality Steels business. The company also said that the unit produced about 225,000 tonnes of steel, about 3 percent of Tata Steel Europe’s total output, and £275 million of turnover.The company said that the irregularities were first noticed during the course of internal audit, subsequent to which Tata Steel stopped the practices while adding “the investigation found that the steel affected and supplied was always well within safety margins.” The company also suspended many employees at the Yorkshire operations.Explaining the probe by the SFO, the company said it is an outcome of the company’s pro-active move to notify all concerned authorities.”In 2015 itself Tata Steel UK proactively notified the relevant bodies as soon as was practicable after the internal investigation had reached conclusions. These bodies included accreditation and certification bodies. A detailed dialogue has been undertaken with these bodies, who have undertaken their own investigations,” the regulatory filing said.While hinting that the irregularities affected about 450 customers, the company said there was not adverse fallout. “Over 450 direct and 150 indirect customers have been informed. There have been no recalls of material in service by any customer and no customer has brought a legal claim to date.”Record volume sales in FY2016Meanwhile, Tata Steel reported 13 percent increase in sales during the March quarter and record annual sales in financial year 2015-16.Fourth quarter sales stood at 2.72 million tonnes up from 2.41 million tonnes in the corresponding period last year, while annual sales rose to 9.54 million tonnes in 2015-16, up from 8.75 million tonnes in the previous financial year, the company said in a regulatory filing to the BSE Friday.”Tata Steel Limited completed FY’16 with an overall increase in production and sales volumes. The year registered its best ever performance in hot metal, crude steel, saleable steel production and total sales,” the company said.  Cyrus Mistry is the chairman of Tata Steel.last_img read more

Ayia Napa decides to shut access to sea caves

first_imgAUTHORITIES in Ayia Napa plan to shut access to the sea caves, one of the most visited spots at the popular holiday resort, because of safety concerns due to erosion.Napa Mayor Yiannis Karousos told the Cyprus News Agency that erosion, cracks, and other issues have been observed over the years and despite the measures put in place, the situation continues to get worse.“Certain measures have been put in place in the past two to three years to prevent access to cars and motorcycles to the area and work has been done to stop the water from eating away the cave,” Karousos said.The erosion continued however, and the geological survey department determined there was a serious risk of collapse.The experts recommended blocking visitor access and creating a viewing point at a safe distance so that people can enjoy the view.The local authority is now waiting for the experts to point out the area that will be off limits and the spot where people can take photographs and enjoy the sunset.Karousos said blocking access would also mean no more diving, a popular yet dangerous practice mainly undertaken by young tourists.According to the mayor, the area is also the spot where many foreign couples choose to pop the question.“We are convinced that with the measures we’ll be putting in place, marriage will from now on be proposed safely.”Geological survey department staff and forestry officials will visit the area next week to discuss the exact measures to be put in place.Similar restrictions were placed in another popular area of Ayia Napa, Kamara tou Koraka, or crow’s arch, a natural stone bridge at Cavo Greco.The arch has been placed off limits because of the danger of collapse. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
