Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s departure a big loss for European football: Jose Mourinho

first_imgEuropean soccer has lost a “huge player” in Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the striker will raise the level of the game in the U.S following his move to LA Galaxy, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.Ibrahimovic last week ended a short but successful stint at United – where he won the League Cup and the Europa League – to become the latest high-profile player to move to the MLS, following the likes of David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Thierry Henry and Frank Lampard.Mourinho used his news conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Swansea City to pay tribute to the talismanic Swedish forward who he previously coached at Inter Milan.”For me it’s always sad when the big players move towards the end,” Mourinho told reporters.”I remember Luis Figo’s last match with me and Inter, it was one of my saddest moments. The Zlatan goodbye was more in that direction, he’s a huge player that European Football has lost.”But this period with LA Galaxy will be very good for him, he will be good for American football, because of what he can do; his personality, his passion and his professionalism.”Ibrahimovic sustained a bad knee injury in United’s Europa League quarter-final against Belgian side Anderlecht last April but returned to make seven appearances for the Old Trafford side this season.”His recovery was an example of what a professional should be,” Mourinho added. “For him (the move to U.S.) will just be a way to enjoy the last couple of years of football.”advertisementUnited will be without back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero for the weekend’s game, after the Argentine international picked up a knock in his country’s 6-1 friendly defeat by Spain.Ashley Young was also injured on international duty with England but could play against Carlos Carvalhal’s 14th-placed side.United are second in the table on 65 points from 30 games as they bid to finish as runners-up to champions-elect Manchester City.last_img read more

Our Favorite Plays From Saturday’s Win Over Texas Tech

first_imgWe had some fun with this post last week as we looked at some of the most memorable plays from Saturday’s game. Oklahoma State posted the game highlights, but these were individual (and maybe more under the radar) moments that stood out to us.Blake Jarwin (again)This is becoming a weekly occurrence. Jarwin has at least one catch in nine of 10 games this season and exactly one in three of the last four. Almost all of them look exactly like this one.Lil Sho TDThis was just a disgusting pitch and catch. Remember when people were calling Rudolph “average” earlier this year. Yeah, LOL.McCleskey’s fumble I know this ended poorly, but man I really loved the formation and setup. Would love to see this more with No. 1.Justice For allHe’s just a complete freak. And that downfield block from Lacy was paramount.Dimes on dimes on dimesA big balls throw from No. 2 over the middle here. He loves that spot as well as the sideline comeback. It’s a joy to watch.Justin Phillips sackPhillips had 14 tackles including this takedown of Mahomes in the fourth quarter. He was awesome with Chad Whitener out.PeaceCould watch forever.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

No Santa in India

first_imgPosted on January 1, 2011June 20, 2017By: Hellen Kotlolo, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Hellen Kotlolo, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.All around the globe, the Christmas trees, lights and decorations are going up as December hits. Children are hinting for presents, shopping malls are decorated, Christmas carols are sung and in South Africa many children are getting new clothes: ‘Christmas clothes’. But unfortunately for many this is the only time they get clothes, and others, even more unfortunate, have to go without any gifts. Parents are borrowing money just to buy their children Christmas clothes while some are planning for holidays and to visit their close family, relatives and loved ones.In India things are different; it is mostly ‘business as usual’, apart from a few Christmas decorations in some of the more ‘western’ malls and shops. In the first week of December, I attended a National Convention for compiling innovations for improving primary newborn care in India. The convention was a participation of different NGOs and their efforts to improve newborn care and working in collaboration with the Government. The workshop went well but to my frustration I still felt and voiced that it was important to provide integrated care of newborns and mothers. In the two day workshop, HIV was not even mentioned, and the innovations were limited to the urban wealthy in contrast to focusing the care for the poor and most vulnerable. HIV is more prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa but exists around the globe and although the estimates are low and unknown in India, I ask myself about those babies that are exposed. I sometimes wonder with Africa engulfed and burdened by HIV/AIDS if it is only our issue, or if it is really a global issue?For months before my departure for India, I had been working on getting together a PMTCT documentary. After painstakingly recruiting a willing pregnant woman and finding an obliging and interested trusted health journalist, the piece was finally aired on national television in South Africa on “Special Assignment” a week after World AIDS Day and so far the feedback has been great. The website is: http://www.health-e.org.za/news/article.php?uid=20033048.Following the workshop, I returned to the office and started preparing for the meeting we had with “GRAVIS” our NGO-partner responsible for implementation and statistical support of the Birth Preparedness and Complication Readiness (BPCR) project. They are working in the underserved villages of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan. I worked on the presentation and identified the emerging issues from the baseline survey in order to make recommendations. The meeting was meant as discussion for not only sharing the data and the emerging issues but also for planning activities and methods of interventions for the project. We set up dates and deadlines for the weeks to follow. A day after the meeting I went with the team to a meeting to Paranpur to attend a review meeting where the district and government officials also attended. Language still forms a great barrier in communication so at times I take the role of a photographer and I am becoming good at the job. I also shared my experiences in India and experiences in South Africa along with my Ashoka Young Champions idea to the state CDHO, NGO coordinator and representatives from the NGO.Christmas was approaching and as the messages and phone calls from home began, I started feeling the Christmas spirit and missing home even more as the days approached. I was fortunate to take the 24th and 25th off for Christmas. We shared Christmas with our neighbours, a family that lives in the same apartment block as us. They do not celebrate Christmas as such but shared the day with us, and for Christmas lunch we exchanged a few presents. It made the day special as it is both my husband’s and my favorite time of the year and far away from home where we would have indulged in his mom’s wonderful cooking followed by my family’s annual get together with huge and lovely Christmas lunch. The 26th I was on the road to Rajasthan to attend GRAVIS’s state level workshop that we had been invited to. As we drove down to Rajasthan my heart was in Africa more than ever and speaking to my grandmother was a very motivating and emotional reminder that far away across the seas there awaits love and warmth for me.December and January are also wedding seasons in India and we were invited to a wedding which was a wonderful experience in such a diverse and interesting culture. It is not about just attending a wedding but experiencing society which one is in.We organised a belated Christmas party in the office and exchanged presents as wishes for the New Year. The question of Santa brought about many religious complexities and the Christmas party at work showed how different people, from different religions, cultures and different beliefs came together to share the love and purpose of the festive season. To have faith, to believe, to share, to help others, to love beyond, that’s also what my nine months mentorship represents and that’s what the Christmas party represented for me. Sharing and spreading of the festive spirit.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

Ulster Spring Hospital Earmarked for Improvements

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C — Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, has given the assurance that residents of southern Trelawny should start benefitting from improved services at the Ulster Spring Hospital soon. This, he advised, as efforts are currently underway to facilitate full resumption of operations and services at that institution, while addressing  several United States-based organizations affiliated with the parish during a recent meeting in New York. Services reportedly provided by the Ulster Spring Hospital were reportedly scaled down, to be limited to the provision of emergency, trauma, and inpatient care. In underscoring government’s commitment to improving primary healthcare, Dr. Ferguson announced a planned tour of the Ulster Spring Hospital later this month, “to provide us with a first-hand experience of the challenges that are being faced by both patients and other users of the facilities.” This, to determine the necessary inputs to be undertaken.  Dr. Ferguson urged members of the Diaspora to play their part in the government’s thrust to further develop and improve Jamaica’s healthcare system, by supporting these efforts through tangible inputs. The meeting was organized and hosted by the Friends of Trelawny Association (FOTA) in collaboration with the Ulster Spring Association, and the North America Jamaican Nurses Association.last_img read more

Over 43,000 Students to Sit GSAT

first_imgSome 43,384 students are scheduled to sit the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) on Thursday, March 21 and Friday, March 22, in 1,184 centres across the island. The students will be tested on areas of the primary school curriculum, including mathematics, social studies, language arts, science and communication task. Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, Grace McLean, told a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on Thursday, March 7, that all grade six students were registered under the Ministry of Education national registration system, and that students eligible for the GSAT are drawn from this cohort.An additional 2,716 students have not mastered the Grade Four Literacy test after being given four opportunities. These students are still operating below the required grade level and will be transitioned into an appropriate programme, based on their identified learning needs. The students sitting the examination, with only a few exceptions, for example those who recently migrated to Jamaica and were not able to sit the Grade Four Literacy Test, would have arrived at this point through implementation of the competence based transition policy, which requires all students to be certified literate in order to be qualified to sit the GSAT.Mrs. McLean stated that all is in place at the Ministry to administer the highly anticipated examination.“Timetables have already been dispatched to the students and queries are being processed for less than one per cent of the entrants. Secured examination packages will be sent to the six regional offices, which will then be dispatched to the principals and presiding examiners of schools, prior to the examination. Every precaution has been taken to ensure that the integrity of the examination is guaranteed,” Mrs. McLean said.Provisions will be made for all special needs students sitting the examination, the Chief Education Officer noted.Mrs. McLean assured stakeholders that no changes have been made to the format of this year’s examination.“The revision of GSAT within its current form started about three years ago and hence the process is continuing. Having completed the review, we are doing the new development of the examination itself,” she said.Schools that will operate as examination centres will be closed on March 21 and 22. The results of the GSAT are scheduled to be released in June.Queries about the GSAT can be forwarded to the Ministry of Education through the following contact numbers:Region 1 – Kingston and St. Andrew – 948-9388Region 2 – Portland, St. Mary and St. Thomas – 993-5586Region 3 – Trelawny and St. Ann – 917-7849Region 4 – St. James, Hanover and Westmoreland – 979-8590Region 5 – St. Elizabeth and Manchester – 625-7859Region 6 – Clarendon and St. Catherine – 745-1153Student Assessment Unit – 948-9801Deputy Chief Education Officer – 948-9619Chief Education Officer – 948-8715last_img read more

Sri Lanka and India mull visa on arrival

Sri Lanka and India have agreed to bilateral consular dialogue to discuss the visa on arrival facility that would lead to a visa-free regime between the two countries, the Defence Ministry reported today qouting state media as saying.India’s High Commissioner in Colombo Ashok K. Kantha said that Sri Lanka and India must work towards a visa-free regime since a two-way flow of tourists reinforces friendly ties between the two countries. “Indians are travelling overseas in larger numbers.”Nearly one-fifth of foreign tourist arrivals in Sri Lanka are from India. Kantha said the number of tourists from India to Sri Lanka at present is a small fraction of the actual figure.“If more than one million Indians can travel to Singapore and Thailand every year, I don’t see why the number of Indian tourists visiting Sri Lanka should be less than 200,000, since Sri Lanka has so much to offer as a tourist destination. “We are progressively moving towards a visa on arrival regime with some countries,” he said adding that Sri Lanka is one of them. Asked if the visa free travel between the two countries would be a reality, he said that it is definitely within the realm of possibility and this is something we need to encourage.” He said the Government will work out the modalities of the arrangement. “But that’s an objective we need to move towards. Especially, between two friendly countries such as India and Sri Lanka, we should have a very smooth movement of people, goods, ideas and investment. This is something we need to encourage,” he said.He said Sri Lanka should also be more ambitious in tapping the Indian tourist sector. He said India’s policy has been to facilitate Sri Lankan travellers to India with a liberal visa regime for all types of travellers – pilgrims, tourists and the business community with almost everyone being issued visas within one working day. read more

Annan urges end to security violations in Prevlaka and resumption of peace

In his latest report to the Security Council on the UN Mission of Observers in Prevlaka (UNMOP), the Secretary-General says the fact that UN-monitored zones in the peninsula remained free of significant incidents over the past three months was “encouraging.” The report notes however that the “continuing long-standing violations” of the established security regime in Prevlaka are not conducive to building confidence between the two countries. “It is incumbent upon the parties to resume their discussions with the aim of reaching a negotiated solution,” the Secretary-General says, noting that UN mechanisms for building confidence and reaching a peaceful settlement remain at the disposal of both sides. The report flags the presence of Croatian Special Police and Montenegrin Border Police in the UN-controlled zone and the continued operation of the checkpoints at Cape Kobila as violations of the security regime, and says such activities interfered with the free movement of UN military observers. According to the report, Croatian and Montenegrin police forces should be withdrawn and the checkpoints either removed or their continued operation legitimized through a mutual agreement between the parties. Croatian authorities should also lift their restrictions on the movement of UN military observers and permit them unconditional access to all areas of the demilitarized zone. UNMOP was established in January 1996 to take over from the UN Confidence Restoration Operation the task of monitoring the demilitarization of the Prevlaka peninsula, a strategic area disputed by Croatia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. read more

Secret Service says it has no tapes of Trumps Comey conversations

first_img Tuesday 13 Jun 2017, 7:26 AM By Associated Press Short URL THE US SECRET Service said last night it doesn’t have any recordings or transcripts of any tapes recorded within President Donald Trump’s White House, a disclosure that failed to rule out whether any tapes exist of Trump’s conversations with ousted FBI Director James Comey.The agency made the disclosure in response to a freedom of information request by The Wall Street Journal. The newspaper noted that it doesn’t exclude the possibility of recordings created by another entity.Trump has been coy about whether any recordings exist of his private conversations with Comey, who was fired by the president in May. Trump raised the possibility of tapes last month and told reporters last week that he would discuss their potential existence “in the very near future.”White House press secretary Sean Spicer said an announcement would come “when the president is ready to make it.”Comey suggested in his high-profile Senate testimony last week that any recordings would back up his account over the president’s, adding, “Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”The Secret Service has handled recording systems within the White House for previous presidents. The request from the Journal sought recordings or transcripts of any recordings made after Jan. 20 at the White House. The agency said a review of its main indices found no records related to the request.White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said last week she wasn’t aware of whether the White House had any kind of taping system and suggested reporters check with the Secret Service on any security-related questions.Asked whether she would find out, Sanders joked that she would “look under the couches.”Read: Dennis Rodman thinks Trump is ‘pretty happy’ he’s going back to North Korea Share4 Tweet Email 20 Comments 12,192 Views Image: AP/Press Association Images Jun 13th 2017, 7:26 AM Secret Service says it has no tapes of Trump’s Comey conversations Sean Spicer said an announcement would come “when the president is ready to make it.” Image: AP/Press Association Images http://jrnl.ie/3440956 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Real Madrid preparing to sell Benzema to Arsenal

first_imgReal Madrid’s Sergio Ramos has reportedly advised the CEO of Los Blancos, Florentino Perez, to sell him to Arsenal. This comes after the Frenchman’s extremely poor performance throughout the duration of the whole season.Karim Benzema has been one of the names that have quite often been linked with a move to the Emirates, but this has remained only a speculation. However, Ramos seems to think it is high time for Perez to get rid of Benzema as the Frenchman is no good for the team.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Although the Gunners recently acquired two expensive, but also skilled players – namely Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – they still have their eyes on Benzema. They are supposedly the only major club that is interested in signing him and might be ready to give as much as 40 million euro for him, according to the Express.However, this is nowhere close to what Real are demanding for him – Benzema is said to be valued at 80 million euro by his current club.last_img read more

Solar trade dispute threatens Moses Lake industry

first_imgMOSES LAKE — Surrounded by cornfields and animal feedlots, a massive industrial complex owned by a Norwegian energy company aims to make solar power a viable alternative to fossil fuels.REC Silicon, with 500 workers in this Central Washington town, annually produces enough solar-grade polysilicon to power more than 2 million homes.But a global trade battle over solar panels threatens to plunge REC and its local workforce into financial crisis.China last month slapped hefty duties on U.S.-made polysilicon in a move widely seen as retaliation for American tariffs imposed last year on imports of Chinese solar panels.Now, China’s solar panel producers face a 57 percent tariff on polysilicon bought from REC, raising the likelihood that they’ll get the raw material elsewhere.Chinese customers account for nearly 80 percent of the polysilicon produced in Moses Lake, so the stakes are huge, said REC general counsel Francine Sullivan.“This is potentially a massive blow to our business. We’re doing all we can to keep going, but we can’t manage too much longer without government help,” she said.last_img read more

The long-discussed deal is believed to be for 2 years.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 4, 2016center_img ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the extension does not actually provide additional job security for Fisher, who is 4-7 this season.According to Schefter, if the Rams continue to falter, Fisher could still get canned despite the freshly inked deal.A contract extension does not give Jeff Fisher any more job security. Rams must win and play well down stretch or his job will be in danger.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 4, 2016 The Raiders organizational motto is “Commitment to Excellence.” After the Fisher extension, maybe the Rams should change theirs to “Commitment to Average.”last_img read more
