Mesut Ozil lack of application during training Germany coach declares

first_imgReports say Germany coach Joachim Low is unhappy with Mesut Ozil for displaying a lack of application in training.The 29-year-old Arsenal star missed the end of Arsenal’s Premier League campaign because of a back injury but will probably play a prominent role in Germany’s defence of the World Cup in Russia.Before completing their preparations with a game against Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen next week, Low’s team will face Austria in a warm-up match in Klagenfurt on Saturday.

ExBrighton star wary of Eden Hazard threat

first_imgGary Chivers believes it’s essential that Brighton & Hove Albion find a way to stop the ever impressive Eden Hazard ahead of today’s game against ChelseaThe Seagulls will host Chelsea at the Amex Stadium looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Burnley.The last time Brighton faced Chelsea at home came in January, where they lost 4-0 after Hazard’s brace.And Chivers, who played for both teams in his playing career, warned Brighton they must find a way to stop the Belgian superstar this time around.“From Brighton’s perspective it’ll be a tough one because although Chelsea are a side who’ve been a bit indifferent in recent weeks, their last performance in the league against Manchester City was a great one,” Chivers told the club website.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“The side took their chances last weekend – Eden Hazard playing up front was their trump card in many ways because not many people expected that.“Most would assume that either Olivier Giroud or Alvaro Morata would play as a striker, but Hazard went into that role. He had pace either side of him and when they had the ball it really looked dangerous.“Hazard drifts into spaces between the back four and middle four, you don’t want him running at you with the ball because he’s one of the best players in the Premier League – if Albion are to get a result then they’ll have to stop him as well as being solid overall defensively.”The Brighton-Chelsea match will begin at 14:30 (CET) today.last_img read more

TCI Fiscal Performance Outstanding 60 million Surplus

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, An over sixty million dollar government surplus for this fiscal year has made the Turks and Caicos a sought after destination, not only for vacations but now for lenders who can bring relief from the UK bailout loan. The economy of the Turks and Caicos has rebounded; so says the Minister of Finance Hon Washington Misick who this week gave a performance report on Quarter Three of the country’s budget year. “It hasn’t trickled down to the extent that we would like it to trickle down as yet, but I think we are on our way and that will sometime in the next 12 months or so as the government spending increases in the upcoming budget, I think you will see that significant new jobs will be added to the economy, public sector jobs.”Misick said it has been a slow bounce back, but the Turks and Caicos is poised to see an increase in employment. Magnetic Media asked about the unemployment rate of the country; the minister did not know that rate. “I think that information is available online, I don’t know it off the top of my head to be honest with you but that is something that is always changing and of course the unemployment rate in my view for Turks and Caicos is difficult to have an exact estimate of it because a lot of people do not allow themselves to be counted.” Media also asked how many jobs were projected to be created within the public sector; Minister Washy did not know that either.“There certainly will be some new jobs will be created from the government side and I believe there are significant new jobs are to be created by the private sector.”But he did spell out that government income for the quarter was $55.9 million; 15% above budget and a whopping $45.4 million above revenue taken in the same period in 2013-14. This current fiscal period is outperforming the last one by 28%; and when compared to what other countries are seeing and grappling with; it is true, this is an enviable position for the TCI.“Even if you look at our neighbors in the United States, the last projections are that the US economy will be growing (I think) at 2.3%, which is what was less than what was projected a quarter ago, three months ago. Generally speaking, the economy of the Turks and Caicos, I think we can say with certainty has rebounded.”It was the first time the financial report was presented so elaborately to media; that press conference was held in the arrivals lounge of the Providenciales International Airport.

FOURTH QUARTER FINANCIAL REPORT 20152016

first_img Hurricane Irma hits TCI Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp TCI Premier & Governor gives “all-clear” after Hurricane Irma Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTCIG delivered another solid quarter, resulting in an overall fiscal position that was more favourable than the original and revised estimates for the year. This was largely due to the extraordinary returns in areas such as Import Duties, Hotel& Restaurant Tax and Stamp Duty on Land Transactions; while appropriate legislative compliance measures continued to be enforced, as well as emphasis continued on adherence to both the Public Finance Management and the Public Procurement Ordinances.Fourth Quarter results recorded a surplus $10.3 million resulting in a total surplus of $68.6 million for the year ended March 31, 2016.Recurrent Revenues for the fourth quarter totaled $70.7 million. Total Recurrent Revenues for the year of $259.8 million, recorded a favourable variance of 12% ($27.9 million) against the budgeted amount, while realizing a growth of 5% when compared to the previous year. The variances are attributable largely to the following items:Growth in Import Duties which totaled $67.3 million at the end of the fourth quarter; up 12% from the budgeted amount.Strong Performance in the Real estate sector with Stamp duties on Land Transactions, totaling $26.9 million for the year, being 45% above budget.Favourable results from the Hospitality sector, recording $58. 2 million at year end for Hotel & Restaurant Tax.Recurrent expenditure made up somewhat for previously shortfalls during the fourth quarter, being up 33% ($14.0 million) from the budgeted amount. Full year expenditure however, was 6% ($11.8 million) below budget, while recording a growth of 14% over last year’s outturn.The total amount spent on capital projects at the end of the fourth quarter was $11.6 million representing a $14.8 million or 56% shortfall from the budgeted amount of $26.4 million. This $14.8 million however, will be retained in the Development Fund to cover the cost of projects that were deemed committed as of March 31, 2016.Major projects during the year included:$2.2 million spent on Long Bay High School Phase 2$2.0 million Spent on Repairs to the Causeway Bridge$0.5 million spent on repairs to the Wellness Centre on the island of Grand Turk$0.5 million spent in on various Carnival infrastructure projects$0.4 million spent on Glass Shack road developmentTCIG’s total outstanding debt as of March 31, 2016, was $44.3 million; including $28.0 million borrowed from Royal Bank of Canada during February as part of a refinancing arrangement and a $5.0 million Policy Based Loan received from the Caribbean Development bank during March.“With the help of our taxpayers, vendors, civil servants and lenders we have managed to advance many of our projects that focused on infrastructure within the islands and the education sector, while delivering a budget surplus for FY 15/16. However, TCI we must not become complacent, there is still much work ahead of us, as we continue our work in ensuring sustained economic stability and also the continual improvement of the standard of living of all residents of our islands” stated the Hon.

PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE PRESS RELEASE

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Furthermore, there are too many reports of rapes and attempted rapes of passengers of illegal jitneys that are not publicized for fear of intimidating tourists and yet the premier and his government outright refuse to do anything to bring these illegal jitney operations under any kind of control for fear of losing votes. What is even more disgusting is that not only women are reported victims, but innocent, helpless children as well. This is one of the sore issues that the PDA has on the top of its agenda as the safety and wellbeing of our country and people is of the utmost priority and importance. The recent discovery of the decaying and partly burnt body of Dominican National Ms. Sorineida Moreno-Arias who was missing for days and seemingly brutally murdered, has sparked massive outrage in the Dominican community and among political leaders as well as our citizenry. In failing to respond as vociferously in response to the likes of Bah Smith’s murder in Grand Turk which is still unsolved and whose corpse has still not been released to his parents well after a year, political leaders and others have perhaps waited too long to express this level of outrage over these brutal and savage killings that have now seemed to become the order of the day. My sympathy goes out to the Dominican community who is understandingly traumatized and fearful and I hope that there is a speedy solution to these crimes to apprehend the killer and restore some feeling of safety and also to avoid any kind of misunderstanding at a national or community level between our two friendly neighboring countries. It is comical to say the least that while the police are giving a description of  a suspected vehicle in this case, quite a few vehicles that fit this description may be seen on the road in Providenciales without license plates. The lack of positive administrative influence of our elected government on the financing and management of the police force is emphasized by the fact that it’s commissioner reportedly refused public funding in anticipation of the hoteliers providing such funding for CCTV’s which is so essential in solving crime but yet these closed circuits televisions are obviously not forthcoming. Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppJULY 14, 2016BY LEADER: OSWALD SKIPPINGS This government has to impress upon the governor his constitutional responsibility to ensure that the police are adequately trained, sufficiently equipped and professionally managed in order to stem this escalating spate of deadly violence, which is a threat to the safety and wellbeing of residents and tourist alike.  Also, the installation of closed-circuit television must be put in place and should have already been done. Whilst the governor is responsible for law and order, there needs to be continuous dialogue and cooperation between the governor, the political directorate and the commissioner of police to ensure that adequate measures are taken to make these Islands a safe place to live in and visit.last_img read more

JAMAICA Spanish Town Reggae Chef Making It Big in New York

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 11, 2017 – Kingston – He started out selling water to churchgoers in the Valdez Road community of Spanish Town before taking on other small entrepreneural ventures.   Today, Peter Ivey is a recognised international chef and owner of The Reggae Chefs – a personal-chef business based in New York.The Jamaica College old boy says it was his grandfather who first sparked the flame of entrepreneurship inside him at a young age, and it has been burning ever since.“Growing up on Valdez Road, there was a church beside my yard.   At the age of five, my grandfather would fill plastic bags with water, freeze them and give me to go over to the church and sell.   That was how I became fascinated with entrepreneurship,” Ivey says.After graduating from high school, he tried a number of other small business ventures, including selling T-shirts and compact discs (CDs).   He moved to the United States in his later teens and continued to seek out opportunities to establish himself as a young entrepreneur.   This led to him starting a taxi company in the New York area, but he wanted to do something else.   The idea for his most successful venture – Reggae Chefs – came one day while attending a reggae concert in Las Vegas.“I was living in Las Vegas, and I heard of a reggae concert keeping. Junior Gong, Tony Rebel – all the major reggae acts were performing,” he recounts.“It was amazing to me to see white people soaking up reggae music, and see people selling curry goat and Rasta hats.   It was all white people selling, and everyone purchasing was white also,” he notes.He reveals that from that day, he began to ponder how he could combine everything he saw, package it and market it as “an authentic Jamaican product”.   He spent the next two years toying with the idea until he decided to partner with a Jamaican chef to start a personal-chef business.   The idea was to not just offer Jamaican food but the Jamaican experience as well.“The Reggae Chefs fuses Jamaican culture and Jamaican food in a way that is creative.   Our clients are able to go to the website and pair entertainment options with dining options, and two chefs come out to your home and provide that service,” he explains.“So, you can book us, tell us what you want, and we come and cook.  We bring the ludo board, bring the rum and set up your living room or your house or wherever you want us to be,” he explains.Ivey says a total of 13 chefs now make up the team; four employed full-time and the rest on contract.   He adds that while the team is mainly based in the New York area, they also travel outside the US to service clients upon request.“Whenever I talk to vulnerable youth, what I tell them is that if you have a dream, get up every single day and focus on your dream.   Only optimism will get you out of a dark hole,” he says.By: Nedburn ThaffeRelease: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Butragueños mixed signals about Lopeteguis future

first_imgAfter losing against Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid board member Emilio Butragueño, refused to confirm or deny Lopetegui’s future.It was evident that another defeat for Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, would end up in a very complicated next week for manager Julen Lopetegui and Emilio Butragueño just gave the first signals of the drama that’s coming.The External Relations Director at Real Madrid was very shady about his response after the match, especially when Diario AS asked him about Julen Lopetegui’s future in the club.There have been reports of the manager speaking directly to Florentino Perez after another defeat, but he confirmed that he is relaxed despite the storm that is upon him.Butragueño was just as devastated as everybody else after this result, especially one week before Los Blancos have to visit Barcelona to play at the Camp Nou as they are closing in on a very disastrous week that could end with Julen’s career with Los Blancos in a very short period of time.It’s incredible to think that just a few months back, the Spanish manager was about to manage Spain in the World Cup and how quickly things escalated to a point where he would literally end up on the street and with no glory.🗣️ “Estamos abatidos y hay que tener tranquilidad.”https://t.co/Yn0GZje2Ee— AS (@diarioas) October 20, 2018“The match started in the worst possible manner, but the squad was very brave. They didn’t deserve losing the game,” said Butrgueño quoted by Diario AS.“Three shots to the posts, but the circumstances were always against us. We are devastated, these are very sad moments for all Madridistas. We have a match on Tuesday that we have to focus on.”“But I insist, this has been a huge blow for us. We didn’t expect this result, Levante has to take a lot of credit for this victory and congratulations for them are in order. We have to remain calm after this result.”“We all have to try and think about what just happened and regroup. We are very sad. The technical details of the match and the choices that were made are all on Julen and we mustn’t get into that. The squad did many efforts to win the game.”“Football has situations like this one. We have to put all our focus on Tuesday’s match now, we have to win that game because it’s vital for us. We can get back on our feet through hard work, by staying grounded and trusting these players who have won so many trophies recently. This is the moment in which have to stick together the most,” he concluded.Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…🆚 @LevanteUD loss⚽ Early goals 🏟 Backing of the fans❓ The dressing roomHear what Lopetegui said following this afternoon’s defeat at the Bernabéu. 💬👇https://t.co/0JIZpOGVtK— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) October 20, 2018But this result is only the beginning of the end for Julen Lopetegui’s whose only good news of the weekend was Lionel Messi’s injury, the Argentine will miss next week’s El Clasico and Real Madrid needs to take advantage of this setback for the Catalan club or his future is in serious jeopardy otherwise.Losing next Sunday at the Camp Nou without Lionel Messi, will certainly get Lopetegui fired if Florentino Perez hasn’t decided to do that already.Los Blancos were very close to their worst streak without scoring a single goal in the club’s history, Marcelo prevented them from surpassing the 495-minute record that the 1985 Real Madrid squad lasted without scoring a single goal.The Brazilian left this team’s mark at 481 minutes, which is already quite a horrible statistic for a group of players who haven’t stopped winning trophies in the last three seasons.The other good news for Real Madrid, is that La Liga is far from over and many clubs in Spain are competing to win the tournament this season, which leaves them some room to maneuver and mess up a few results right now.Sounds like Real Madrid are set to sack Julen Lopetegui as manager already following today’s 2-1 defeat at home to Levante. Horror spell.Who will replace him? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/oLYHIOBRPh— Alex Turk👨🏻‍💻 (@_AlexTurk) October 20, 2018How much longer do you think Julen Lopetegui will remain as the Real Madrid manager? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more

That statement still stands and will stand for a long time.”“It (the meeting with King) was positive. I had dinner with him on Monday evening.”“It was positive, it was good. We spoke about what we are trying to do in terms of the next couple of windows and what the future looks like.”“Spoke about a couple of setbacks we had had since the last time I spoke to him and about what was in store for the AGM because it was my first one.”“It was good to hear what the process was and what was expected and that was pretty smooth I think.
