As of 11p.m. Thursday night the local airport had recorded a snowfall total of 11.7 centimeters, pushing this week’s and this month’s, unofficial total to nearly 24 centimeters.Given what has fallen since then, it’s reasonable to assume we’ve now received at least two and half times the monthly average of 10.6, with half the month still to come.- Advertisement -Environment Canada has lifted the snowfall warning for the area but it is still calling for a total of four centimeters Friday.In addition, because the storm front arrived, about six hours later than anticipated yesterday morning, the weather bureau is also saying there’s about a 70 percent chance of more flurries on Saturday.So, needless to say, this is another morning when local area motorists will be required to adjust to winter driving conditions.
Yevhen Konoplyanka 1 Roma are set to hold talks with the agent of Liverpool and Tottenham target Yevhen Konoplyanka, according to reports in Italy.The Dnipro winger has just one year remaining on his current contract and talks with the Ukraine club are understood to be stalling.As a result several of Europe’s top clubs have expressed an interest in Konoplyanka, who scored 13 goals in 36 appearances last season.Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly leading the chase, but West Ham also had a bid rejected for the 25-year-old last summer.However, according to Sky Sport Italia, Roma have now scheduled talks with Konoplyanka’s agent in January.Dnipro are said to be keen on striking a deal then, before the player becomes available on a free next summer.
BL19_IBP_BEDI 2/2 Justice RM Lodha Justice RM Lodha SHARE 1/2 Supreme Court rules in favour of cricket and its fans BL19_IBP_BEDI SHARE SHARE EMAIL × July 18, 2016 Lodha panel gives BCCI time till Oct 15 to comply with proposals Justice RM Lodha Published on 1 BCCI should accept the report humbly, says Bishen Singh Bedi COMMENT BL19_IBP_BEDI null cricket RELATED COMMENTS Justice RM Lodha is a satisfied man, with the Supreme Court on Monday endorsing most of the key recommendations made by the Panel headed by him to suggest structural reforms for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).Lodha, who chaired the Supreme-Court constituted panel, told BusinessLine that he does not see any impediments in implementing these recommendations.“The report was prepared after a lot of deliberations and efforts were put for nearly one year and it has now been broadly accepted. After the direction given by the Supreme Court, I don’t see any impediments in implementing these recommendations,” he said. Voicing a similar view is former Indian Cricket Captain, Bishen Singh Bedi, who said “The recommendations by Lodha Panel have been formulated after going to the bottom of the issues…after putting in enormous efforts. I don’t see any reasons why these recommendations cannot be implemented within six months by the Board.”Bedi is also quick to point out that the fact that the Supreme Court had to intervene meant that something was dreadfully wrong with the BCCI. “It was being run as personal fiefdom and this had to stop,” he told BusinessLine.Meanwhile, cricket fraternity and those closely associated with the game say recommendations such as inclusion of a Comptroller & Auditor General representative, barring Ministers and civil servants from holding posts, besides capping the age limit for office bearers to 70 years, will mean a major overhaul in the working style of the richest cricket board in the world.The fact that the Supreme Court has let the BCCI decide the structure of agreements relating to broadcasting rights, will bring relief for the Board and the sports broadcasters.
