Harry Winks: Spurs players behind the managerby Paul Vegas18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveHarry Winks says Tottenham Hotspur’s squad are sticking by Mauricio Pochettino.The Argentine is under pressure to keep his job after Saturday’s loss to Brighton, leaving the club with a record of three wins from 11 games this season.But Winks believes Pochettino has the complete support of his playing squad.”He’s our manager. He’s been fantastic ever since he’s been at the club and taken the club to new heights,” Winks said.”At the moment we are going through a bit of a rough patch. That happens in football, every club goes through it.”It’s important we stand up as men and get through these dark times, and hopefully we can get back to playing well and winning as much as we can.”In the last six years we have come such a long way, we have become a title-challenging side. But we haven’t shown it this season, we have only shown it in parts.”In certain games we have played really well but for the majority of this season we haven’t shown what we are about.”It’s important we look back on it and reflect so realise it’s not been good enough, no excuses. The only way we can put it right is back in training and the next match.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

However, in light of the insignificant profit contribution of Sinfeng, the board currently does not foresee any material adverse impact on the group as a result of the liquidation of Coastal Oil Singapore,” COSCO added.
TORONTO – Canada’s main stock index soared as the loonie fell after the governor of the Bank of Canada signalled in a speech it would be taking a more cautious approach on any future rate hikes.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index climbed 135.54 points to 15,609.66 on the strength of broad-based gain that saw all major sectors, excluding gold, push ahead.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 80.57 cents US, down 0.27 of a cent.Central bank governor Stephen Poloz stressed Wednesday there’s no prearranged route for further interest rate hikes after the sizzling national economy motivated him to raise the rate once in July and again earlier this month.The speech marked the first public comments by Poloz since the bank drew criticism for its communications approach ahead of the September hike, which caught many forecasters off guard.“So the major changes in his tone were that he’s going to monitor very closely movements in the long-term rates,” said Macan Nia, a senior investment strategist at Manulife Investments.“And I think the one line that really stuck out for market participants was that he said there’s no predetermined path for interest rates. As a result you saw the Canadian dollar sell off and you saw the TSX rally.”Nia said Poloz’s announcement was a primary driver for financials in particular. Also helping the TSX, he added, was the continuation of positive news about oil markets and a “bullish oil sentiment” over the past couple of weeks.The November crude contract was up 26 cents to US$52.14 per barrel.On the corporate front, Bombardier Inc.’s (TSX:BBD.B) shares lost more than seven per cent to close at $2.10 as investors weighed the prospect of a 220 per cent duty on U.S. sales of its flagship CSeries passenger jets and the European merger of two railway rivals.South of the border, New York stock indices jumped after a U.S. Labor Department report showed business investment rose in August for the second month in a row. Investors hope that means U.S. manufacturing is getting stronger as the global economy continues to improve.The Dow Jones industrial average was up 56.39 points to 22,340.71. The S&P 500 index added 10.20 points to 2,507.04 and the Nasdaq composite index advanced 73.10 points to 6,453.26.Investors also eyed a proposed tax plan by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans that cuts tax rates for individuals and corporations, reduces the number of personal tax brackets, and nearly doubles the standard deduction used by most Americans. They propose to cut the top corporate tax rate to 25 per cent from its current 35 per cent.However, with months of negotiations likely ahead and many key details missing, it’s not clear what kind of plan might ultimately pass.“With the long-anticipated Trump tax reform package, you saw markets didn’t react either way immediately,” said Nia. “It’s short on details.”Elsewhere in commodities, the December gold contract was down $13.90 to US$1,287.80 an ounce.The November natural gas contract gained six cents to US$3.06 per mmBTU and the December copper contract edged up a penny at US$2.93 a pound.– With files from The Associated Press.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.
The creation of a Community Foundation is listed as a 2019 initiative in Council’s Strategic Plan.Mayor Lori Ackerman shared, right now the city spends a significant amount on ‘Grants in Aid’ and permissive tax exemptions. When the Community Foundation (CF) is established, the funding could come from the CF rather than our operating budget.As the community grows, so too are the requests for assistance.

New Delhi: About 146 kg of gold jewellery worth over Rs 82 crore has been seized by the ED after it raided the premises of a Hyderabad-based jewellery group and its associates in connection with a post demonetisation money laundering case, the agency said Thursday. It said the searches were conducted at the showrooms of Musaddilal Jewellers at Hyderabad and Vijaywada, its promoter Kailash Gupta, a company named Balaji Gold and its partner Pavan Agarwal, another company Ashta Laxmi Gold, its proprietor Neel Sunder Tharad and chartered accountant Sanjay Sarda over the last few days.

The agency had filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against these people based on an FIR of the Telangana Police and a complaint of the Income Tax Department for “blatantly misusing the scheme of demonetisation by illegally depositing huge amounts of unaccounted demonetised cash in their accounts.” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K “For this purpose, they (accused) fraudulently created around 5,200 back-dated fabricated advance sale receipts dated November 8, 2016 for an amount less than Rs 2 lakh to avoid furnishing PAN (permanent account number) details,” the agency said. Describing the alleged modus operandi deployed in the case, the statement said that soon after after the notes ban was announced, the accused “illegally deposited Rs 110.85 crore in their bank account falsely claiming that within a few hours they had received advances of less than Rs 2 lakh each from more than 5,200 customers on the night of November 8, 2016 for purchase of gold and jewellery from their firms”. The ED said all these invoices were “bogus.” It also analysed CCTV footage of the firms’ offices and that of the neighbourhood that showed that “no such activity” of purchase of gold was carried out during that period. It said that out of the total Rs 110.85 crore alleged illegal funds, about Rs 80 crore was transferred to the bank accounts of various gold and bullion dealers like Ashta Lakshmi Gold, Shri Balaji Gold and others on the pretext of purchase of gold. “The accused have admitted that they created fake sale invoices. The accused failed to give any satisfactory account of the source of this illegal cash and also failed to provide the details of the accounts regarding the utilisation of about 270 kg of gold purchased out of this money,” the ED alleged. The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 was declared by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the night of November 8, 2016.
Paul George, the NBA’s 2012-13 most improved player, recently explained how he wasn’t prepared for the role of “leader” of the Indiana Pacers during last year’s NBA season.In an interview with NBA Inside Stuff reporter Dennis Scott, George confessed, “I really wasn’t ready for that moment.”George mentioned that he wasn’t particularly prepared to be the go-to guy on the team at the beginning of last season, but he did what he needed to do to fit into the role.He eventually excelled in the position, leading his team to the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals.

Posted: March 21, 2018 KUSI Newsroom March 21, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A half-dozen influenza-related deaths were reported last week in San Diego County, bringing the flu season’s total to 308 in the region, health officials announced Wednesday.This has been a particularly severe flu season in the region and across the country. At this time last year, 72 deaths had been reported.There were 682 lab-confirmed cases in the county last week, up from 602 the week before. That brings this season’s total to 19,483, compared to 4,956 at this time last season, according to county data.The number of influenza cases being reported is still elevated, a sign that the flu is still here and making people sick,” said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. “People should continue getting vaccinated.”Wooten has extended until April 30 an order for unvaccinated health care professionals to wear a mask while they’re in patient care areas. She said she may need to extend the order further if flu activity remains elevated.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months be vaccinated.Vaccines are available at doctors’ offices and retail pharmacies.

This week, FOLIO: reported that Cygnus co-CEOs Carr Davis and Tony O’Brien plan to restore of some salaries that were slashed by 7.5 percent by means of a “bonus” to be paid mid-January. The bonus, they say, represents about 70 percent of the initial reduction absorbed by many employees in October. However, only salaried employees who do not receive commission, incentive payments or other bonuses will be eligible for this “restoration.”Based on the comments we’ve received since posting the story, there seems to be a discrepancy between the Cygnus executive team and the effected employees about how many people will in fact benefit from this initiative. When asked exactly how many employees will benefit from the “bonus restoration,” Cygnus spokesperson Kathy Scott couldn’t provide an exact number, but claimed it to be a “huge percentage.”It appears some Cygnus employees disagree. See their comments here.
Shareholders of JPMorgan Chase & Co and Citigroup Inc will get to vote on whether their banks should consider breaking into smaller pieces.Citigroup included the question in a proxy statement it filed on Wednesday for its annual meeting next month, and the shareholder sponsoring that proposal said he has a similar one slated for the upcoming ballot for JPMorgan’s annual meeting.The shareholder, Bart Naylor, said he hopes the proposals get more votes than the 4 percent he got for a measure last year that called for Bank of America Corp to break up.The Citigroup and JPMorgan proposals “are more deferential to the boards in asking them to study the vicissitudes of a breakup,” Naylor said in an interview. He hopes proxy advisory firms, which often sway one-third of votes with their recommendations to institutional investors, will back studies by directors even if they won’t tell directors to break up the banks.”These banks are too big to manage,” Naylor said.Citigroup directors opposed Naylor’s resolution in Wednesday’s filing, noting that the company has undertaken a transformation on its own to become smaller and more efficient. Citigroup has shed more than $500 billion of assets since 2008.A JPMorgan spokesman declined to comment on Naylor’s proposal. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon has said that JPMorgan is stronger because of its large and diverse businesses.Naylor said he failed to get a similar measure on the slate for the next Bank of America shareholders meeting because he made a mistake and did not properly certify that he owned shares.The Wall Street Journal reported earlier on Wednesday that Naylor’s proposals would be on the ballots.The breakup of large banks into smaller ones has been an issue on the U.S. campaign trail.U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who has drawn the support of the Democratic Party’s populist wing in his run for the party’s presidential nomination, has said he would create a “too-big-to-fail list of commercial banks, shadow banks, and insurance companies” and break them up in the first year of his administration.

Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 2 min read Before the Switch launched, Nintendo set a target of shipping 2 million of the hybrid consoles during its first month on sale. We’ve already heard about Zelda: Breath of the Wild selling more copies on Switch than there are Switch, but now we know that Nintendo easily beat its own target, shipping 2.74 million Switch consoles in its first month.Breath of the Wild continues to outpace the hardware, racking up 2.76 million copies sold. This is surely a mix of gamers buying more than one copy (standard and collector’s edition), and those who haven’t been able to get a Switch yet buying Zelda anyway in preparation. If you add in the Wii U version, the total increases to 3.84 million copies. The good news for Nintendo doesn’t end there. According to Eurogamer, the 3DS is continuing to sell well. The 2016 sales report shows 7.27 million 3DS sales, taking the lifetime total to 66 million. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon played a big part in shifting new hardware, selling 15.44 million copies.Considering the Wii U was never really very popular, it’s impressive to find it still managed to sell 760,000 units last year. Its lifetime sales now sit at 13.56 million, which is easily going to be surpassed by Switch at this rate. Nintendo is predicting another 10 million Switch will sell over the next 12 months, taking the total close to 13 million. That’s lower than the production doubling estimate of 18 million made in March.Surprisingly good sales of the 3DS last year make it clear Nintendo won’t be ending support for its handheld platform any time soon. In fact, the 3DS is expected to sell another 6 million units over the next year. If the rumors of a Mini Switch arriving in 2019 are true, then Nintendo will likely continue supporting the 3DS until then. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. April 27, 2017 This story originally appeared on PCMag Enroll Now for Free
20 years after KDevelop’s first release, KDevelop 5.3 is now released with features like a new analyzer and improved support for some languages. A new type of analyzer plugin in KDevelop 5.3 In version 5.1 KDevelop got a menu entry Analyzer which provides a set of actions to work with analyzer-like plugins. With version 5.2, a runtime analyzer called Heaptrack and a static analyzer called cppcheck were added. In the development phase of KDevelop 5.3, another analyzer plugin was added which is available with the current release. The new analyzer named Clazy is a clang analyzer plugin specialized for Qt-using code. It can now also be run from within KDevelop by default displaying the issues inline. The KDevelop plugin for Clang-Tidy support will be released as part of KDevelop starting with version 5.4. It is released independently as of now. Internal changes in KDevelop 5.3 KDevelop’s own codebase has been subject for using analyzers. A lot of code has been optimized and also stabilized in places indicated by the analyzers. There is also modernization to the new standards of languages like C++ and Qt5 with the aid of analyzers. Improved support for C++ Lot of work was done in KDevelop 5.3 on stabilizing and improving KDevelop’s clang-based language support for C++. The notable fixes include: In clang tooltips were included, range check was fixed. The path to the builtin clang compiler headers can now be overridden. Now the clang builtin headers are always used for the libclang version used. Requests are completed in a group and only the last one is handled. The template for Class/function signatures in Clang Code Completion is fixed. A workaround for constructor argument hints to find declarations. In clang, argument hint code completion is improved. Improved support for PHP With the help of Heinz Wiesinger, there are improvements for PHP support in KDevelop 5.3. There is much-improved support for PHP Namespaces. Support for Generators and Generator delegation is added. The integrated documentation of PHP internals has been updated and expanded. Support for context-sensitive lexer of PHP 7. Installing the parser as a library so other projects can use them. The type detection of object properties is improved. Support is added for the object typehint. ClassNameReferences is better supported. Improvements to expression syntax support particularly around ‘print’. Optional function parameters are allowed before non-optional ones. Support for magic constants: __DIR__ and __TRAIT__ are added. Improved Python language support The focus is on fixing bugs, which have been added to the 5.2 series. A couple of improved features in 5.3 are: Environment profile variables are injected into debug process environment. The support for ‘with’ statements is improved. There is also experimental, but maintainer-seeking support for macOS and port for Haiku. For more details, visit the KDevelop website.
