first_imgHarry 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 saylast_img read more

2 More Major Coaches Could Join Alabama Staff


first_imgnick saban getting criticized for end of half decision vs. georgiaATLANTA, GA – DECEMBER 01: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on before the 2018 SEC Championship Game against the Georgia Bulldogs at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on December 1, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Nick Saban has some work to do to fill out his Alabama football staff.The Crimson Tide head coach knew he’d be losing Mike Locksley to the Maryland, where he is now head coach.The program’s two other most important offensive assistants are also on their way out now.Josh Gattis, Alabama’s co-offensive coordinator with Locksley, is moving up to Michigan to be the Wolverines OC under Jim Harbaugh.Dan Enos, who was expected to be the next Alabama offensive coordinator, will instead serve in the same role at Miami.Earlier it was reported that Steve Sarkisian is discussing a return to Alabama to be the team’s offensive coordinator, a position he previously filled during the 2017 national championship game against Clemson. He was set to continue on in that role, but instead left to take the same job with the Atlanta Falcons.Alabama fans don’t seem thrilled with the notion of bringing back Steve Sarkisian, but per a new report, Nick Saban is talking with a pair of other notable offensive coaches.AL.com reports that Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chip Long was on campus today, and that Butch Jones, the Alabama analyst and former Tennessee head coach, could return to the team in an expanded capacity.It is unclear if they’re in competition with Sark to become OC, or if these moves could be in conjunction with that hire.From the report:Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chip Long was also in Tuscaloosa today, according to sources. It looks like he could join the staff in some capacity even if/when Sarkisian is hired as offensive coordinator.[…]While it has been reported elsewhere that Butch Jones was set to join Mike Locksley’s staff at Maryland, sources have said that Jones is still currently working for Alabama. AL.com previously reported that while there was a good chance Jones could end up at Maryland, it was still possible Jones could end up staying at Alabama if he was promoted to an on-field job.Long did a very nice job turning Notre Dame into a College Football Playoff-caliber offense with the move to Ian Book at quarterback a few weeks into the season.Jones obviously didn’t work out at UT, but he’s a strong recruiter who knows the league, and one would imagine Saban believes he can be an asset on staff if he gives him a promotion like this.Whomever it comes down to, Alabama has a number of spots to fill, and Saban is gunning for a return to the top of the sport.[AL.com]last_img read more

SC demolishes Modi Jaitley BJPs stand on electoral bonds Yechury


first_imgNew Delhi: Welcoming the Supreme Court’s decision on electoral bonds, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury Friday said the apex court had “demolished” the stand taken by the BJP-led NDA government on the issue. The Supreme Court Friday did not stop political funding through electoral bonds but brought several checks on it to bring transparency by directing all political parties to furnish receipts of amounts received and details of identity of donors in a sealed cover to the Election Commission. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ In an interim order, the apex court also directed all political parties to provide details of the amount of the bond and bank account of donors by May 30 to the poll panel. “Supreme Court demolishes stance taken by Modi, Jaitley & BJP – which had pushed this as a Money bill, for opaque, secret Electoral bonds. The court says transparency is the basic principle of electoral funding. People have a right to know which party got how much, and from whom,” Yechury tweeted. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K The Centre and the Election Commission had taken contrary stands in the Supreme Court on Wednesday over political funding, with the government wanting to maintain anonymity of donors of electoral bonds and the poll panel batting for revealing names of donors for transparency. “Anonymity pushed by BJP is on the way out. Donors of black money via this route will be scared to fund from here on. Today EC has the data. Tomorrow the public will also have it,” Yechury wrote on Twitter.last_img read more

Tamil Nadu IT dept seizes Rs 148 cr bribe cash linked to


first_imgChennai: The Income-Tax Department Wednesday seized Rs 1.48 crore cash stashed allegedly by supporters of TTV Dhinakaran’s AMMK party to bribe voters in Tamil Nadu’s Theni district, where an assembly bypoll is scheduled Thursday. Unaccounted cash worth Rs 1.48 crore was seized. It was neatly packed in 94 packets and envelops on which the ward number, number of voters and the amount of Rs 300 per voter was written, I-T Director General (investigations) B Murali Kumar said, after the overnight raids concluded at 5:30 AM.

Kumar added that the premises belongs to a functionary of the AMMK party. Infact, the AMMK party office functions from the ground floor of the premises, he said. The department will send a report on the operation to the Central Board of Direct Taxes, the policy-making body for the tax department, and the Election Commission in New Delhi, a senior official said. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The tax department had launched a search at a store Tuesday night following inputs about suspected cash being stashed at a location. During the raids, police had to open fire in the air to disperse supporters of the AMMK ( Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam) who objected to the action. The tax official said the “sworn statement of the person present on the premises was recorded and he said that Rs 2 crore in cash was brought in there for distribution to voters in Andipatti panchayat union area on April 16.” Describing the raids, the official said initially a group of party workers overpowered the flying squad persons, comprising district EC authorities and I-T officials, standing guard outside the premises. The workers allegedly also broke open the door and snatched some cash packets. No one was injured in the firing, a senior official said. Four AMMK volunteers were detained in connection with the incident. The miscreants dropped some cash packets and fled with a few. The remaining cash in 94 bundles (Rs 1.48 crore) was seized by the department along with the envelopes, he said. A postal ballot paper for Andipatti assembly by-election, which was already marked for an AMMK candidate, was also found on the premises and seized, he said. Photographs of the store clicked by the sleuths showed bundles of Rs 500 and some of Rs 2,000 notes. The district collector and the Superintendent of Police reached the spot and supervised the security, the official said. The district police has filed an FIR against a number of persons, he added. Tamil Nadu votes on April 18 for the Lok Sabha as well. Earlier, the Election Commission countermanded election to the Vellore parliamentary constituency on charges of illegal cash being used to lure voters there.last_img read more

Security Council to receive draft US resolution on Iraq tomorrow – President


“I’m sure that most Council members will wish to transmit this to their authorities and the authorities would have the whole weekend to study it,” Pakistani Ambassador Munir Akram, Council President for May, told reporters after a Council meeting today on the humanitarian situation Iraq. “So I expect that come early next week, some sort of process of consultations is likely to begin on the draft resolution.” Earlier, United States Ambassador John Negroponte told reporters the UN would have an “important, vital” role, and he hoped the resolution would be passed within two weeks, but at the very latest by 3 June, the expiry date of the Oil-for-Food programme under which Iraq was able to sell oil to purchase food and other humanitarian supplies. Asked what role a UN representative in Iraq would play, he said it would be constructive. “That will be an important and a vital role as was said by both President Bush and Prime Minister Blair at the Hillsborough meeting,” he added, referring to last month’s summit between the US and British leaders in Northern Ireland. Mr. Negroponte said he did not see any role for UN weapons inspectors in Iraq for the foreseeable future. Other Council members have said the inspectors, withdrawn on the eve of war, should return to search for banned weapons of mass destruction. At today’s meeting, the Council was briefed by Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette on the humanitarian situation in Iraq. “This report both has encouraging aspects, as well as some issues of concern, but it is an indication of the active role that the United Nations is resuming in Iraq and we trust that this role will be of benefit to the Iraqi people,” Mr. Akram said. Asked what the concerns were, he replied: “Concerns with regard to looting, the water and sanitation still has to be fully re-established, some reports of outbreak of cholera which has to be contained.” read more

Canada Post says it lost 104 million in Q2 due to lower


OTTAWA – The Canada Post Group reported a $104-million loss Tuesday in its latest quarter as efforts made to cut costs and streamline operations was not enough to balance out lower mail volumes.The federal Crown corporation says the loss comes in the midst of a “historic shift” to digital communications that has eroded mail volumes at an “accelerated pace.”As a result, it is in the process of consultations to decide how the company can change with the times, as fewer people continue to send mail and use post offices.Canada Post said this “multi-pronged transformation” is part of an overall effort to “avoid becoming a financial drain on taxpayers.”The $104 million loss before taxes was heavier than a loss of $102 million in the same quarter a year earlier.Transaction mail, which includes letters, bills, and statements and accounts for half of Canada Post’s revenue, was down by 51 million pieces or 6.3 per cent in the quarter, compared with a year earlier.However, Canada Post said its parcels delivery business grew due to the popularity of online shopping. In Canada, volumes in the second quarter were up by 5.1 per cent, compared with a year ago.Canada Post said it continues to cut costs by making changes to collective agreements with its workers, who are members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. The changes include reduced wages for new hires, the elimination of banked sick days, and a one-year-wage wage freeze for new hires beginning 2015.It is also shortening hours at its less-in-demand retail postal outlets, and consolidating mail processing.The company said the second-quarter loss means it is on track to record a substantial loss in 2013.Canada Post has been grappling with a persistent drop in many forms of mail as a result of newer technologies such as electronic mail and online banking.Besides Canada Post, the group includes the Purolator courier service and other subsidiaries.

Potential nuclear attack devastating and catastrophic says senior UN humanitarian official


“The humanitarian consequences of a nuclear attack or an accidental nuclear blast are potentially devastating and catastrophic,” the Director of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Geneva, Rashid Khalikov, told the press on the margins of the International Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons in Oslo, Norway. “We need to collectively consider the extent to which we can – as a humanitarian system – effectively respond to such a crisis,” Mr. Khalikov said.The two-day conference which started today includes presentations by experts and discussions with practitioners from the fields of health services, development, environment, finance, and emergency preparedness and response.According to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the conference will focus on identifying a nuclear weapon detonation and learning from historical experiences about its medical impacts. Participants will also discuss the wider economic, developmental and environmental consequences of a nuclear weapon detonation. The groups will then discuss what governments, international organizations, civil society and the general public can do to prepare for a potential nuclear catastrophe. OCHA is attending the conference within its role to support Member States with preparedness and coordination of international response to disaster and emergencies. “We support humanitarian agencies in saving lives, mitigating human suffering and providing urgent assistance,” Mr. Khalikov told the journalists. He added that if the humanitarian community cannot respond effectively, as the initial assessment shows, “then it underlines our common responsibility to do everything we can to prevent the use of these weapons.”The United Nations chief, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, has made disarmament one of his top priorities.He and other senior UN officials are supporting the establishment of zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. Currently, there are five such zones: Latin America and the Caribbean; the South Pacific; South-East Asia; Central Asia; and Africa. read more

Insecurity funding shortfall leaves millions hungry in DR Congo – UN


Currently 6.7 million people live in acute food insecurity which represented a “humanitarian crisis,” World Food Programme (WFP) spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs told journalists in Geneva. Ninety-five per cent of the population in the DRC lives on less than two dollars per day, and nine per cent of children under the age of five are acutely malnourished, according to WFP. Displaced families living in camps, most of whom are female-headed households, as well as refugees from the Central African Republic, are also particularly vulnerable.The deteriorating situation was caused by the continuing conflict and insecurity which prevented people from growing food and a decrease in international food aid, Ms. Byrs said. In addition, low levels of government spending on socio-economic sectors such as education, health, sanitation, infrastructure and agriculture, are worsening the situation.She warned that WFP needs $21 million to carry out its humanitarian operations through October, and will be forced to cut its programmes if it does not receive the aid.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region, Mary Robinson, is in the DRC today wrapping up a two-day visit to assess the progress being made on the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the DRC and the Region – signed by 11 nations in February 2013 – and since dubbed the “framework of hope.”She is joined by Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative in the DRC, Martin Kobler, who is also the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in the country, known by its French acronym MONUSCO. Also with them are the United States Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region and the DRC, Russ Feingold; the Special Representative of the African Union, Boubacar Diarra; and the European Union Senior Coordinator for the Great Lakes Region, Koen Vervaeke.During the visit, the envoys met with representatives of the government, civil society and the international community “to hear firsthand about the implementation of commitments to the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework and what they can do to support further progress,” according a UN spokesperson.Earlier, the group was in Burundi, where the envoys met with President Pierre Nkurunziza and other political leaders, as well as civil society representatives.In a joint statement issued after that visit, the envoys said that they were very concerned about the constraints on political space and civil liberties in the lead-up to next year’s general election. They added that Burundi had made commendable progress in overcoming a history of conflict, but that progress risked being lost without an inclusive, transparent and peaceful election process. read more

Tesco is shocked at unions suggesting that members shop with their conscience


first_imgTesco is the only employer in the food retail sector to recognise trade unions across all of its stores. We are further disappointed that Mandate continues to engage in a campaign of myths and misinformation to misguide our colleagues.In a show of solidarity with the company, Irish business representative group Ibec said this evening that Mandate’s actions are “unjustified, unreasonable and in defiance of Workplace Relations Commission and Labour Court recommendations”.“This action by Mandate is extraordinary in its approach to a good employer who has complied with all procedures and who needs to react to the changing retail environment,” said Ibec director of employer relations Maeve McElwee.Tesco must ensure the competitiveness and sustainability of their business.

We believe the Ictu should use its authority to encourage Mandate to abide by the outcomes of the Labour Court and accept the recommendation which the union themselves had sought. 70 Comments Source: Sam Boal/Rollingnews.ieIN THE LATEST twist to what is becoming an increasingly bitter industrial dispute, Tesco has expressed its ‘shock’ at unions suggesting that members ‘shop with their conscience’.Earlier today, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (Ictu) held a briefing in which Mandate’s John Douglas had encouraged members to follow their own judgement when it came to personal shopping. He was deliberately avoiding the word ‘boycott’, he said.Ictu also claimed that certain Tesco staff members have received letters from the company offering assistance to those members in leaving their union.This evening Tesco has fired back saying in a statement that as “the only food retailer to recognise trade unions in all of its stores… we are shocked that trade union leaders are urging union workers to shop in non-unionised stores”.The retail giant has been calling repeatedly in recent days for Mandate, which represents about 11,000 of Tesco’s 14,000-strong Irish workforce, to abandon its plans for strike action and to accept the recommendations of the Labour Court, made last March, regarding the dispute.The pending strike action, which will see nine stores initially close on Valentine’s Day followed by another five from 17 February, stems from attempts by the company to ‘unilaterally impose terms’ on its longest-serving workers, according to Mandate. Mandate general secretary John Douglas Source: Leah Farrell/Photocall IrelandThe union claims this will see those workers bearing a 15% pay cut together together with seeing the terms and conditions of their contracts undermined.“Tesco has followed all industrial relations procedures and processes and has worked with all the industrial relations machinery of the State over the past year in an effort to resolve (this dispute),” the company said in a statement, adding that Ictu’s actions are “regrettable”.

Tabac la consommation française a augmenté de 2 entre 2005 et 2010


first_imgTabac : la consommation française a augmenté de 2% entre 2005 et 2010France – Malgré les efforts du gouvernement et des autorités sanitaires, la consommation de tabac a augmenté de 2% en France ces cinq dernières années.Roselyne Bachelot, ministre de la Santé et des Sports, a expliqué ces chiffres de différentes manières. Elle a notamment confié à l’AFP : “Pratiquement 50% des chômeurs sont fumeurs et à l’évidence la crise, l’augmentation du chômage, a eu un effet sur l’augmentation de la consommation du tabac. Je me rapproche de Pôle Emploi pour qu’il y ait une action spécifique qui soit menée auprès des chômeurs”.Pourtant, ces chiffres ont de quoi décevoir alors que le gouvernement ne cesse de faire de la prévention et d’augmenter le prix du tabac afin de dissuader les fumeurs. De plus, la ministre a affirmé avoir constaté que la loi concernant l’interdiction de fumer dans les lieux publics et les cafés et restaurants n’est pas toujours respectée.Le 18 octobre 2010 à 13:07 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Bits n Pieces Have Colt revolver — will travel … to Vegas

Powers said he’s uncertain when it will air.Powers tried to auction the gun earlier in Oregon, and a bidder offered $47,000, but it was set up with a minimum bid of $50,000, so it didn’t sell.last_img read more
