first_imgMeralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Thirteen years later, Wenger is still in the Premier League and, like Guardiola, still breaking records.The Frenchman took charge of his 811th match in the Premier League — a record in a division that was inaugurated in 1992 — when Arsenal visited West Brom in the final game of 2017, and saw his team concede in the 89th minute from a disputed penalty to draw 1-1.CITY JUGGERNAUT STOPPEDA 19th straight victory for City would have matched the record winning streak in Europe’s top five leagues, set by Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in the 2013-14 season.Yet the leaders turned in one of their sloppiest displays of the season — even De Bruyne’s imperious passing radar was off — and needed a penalty save from Ederson Moraes off Luka Milivojevic in injury time to preserve their undefeated start.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson LATEST STORIES 76ers’ Embiid injures right hand in win over Suns Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, right, looks dejected as Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is taken off the pitch injured during the English Premier League soccer match between Crystal Palace and Manchester City at Selhurst Park in London, Sunday Dec. 31, 2017. (AP Photo/Tim Ireland)After 18 games and more than four months, Manchester City’s record winning run in the Premier League is finally over.That was not the only bad news for Pep Guardiola on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson During the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, the City manager saw Gabriel Jesus sustain a leg injury that could rule out the striker for up to two months and then star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne get carried off on a stretcher. It remains to be seen for how long the favorite for English soccer’s Player of the Year award is sidelined.But dropping points for the first time since August — and failing to score in a league game for the first time since January — might be the least of City’s worries.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkGuardiola can at least console himself that his team heads into 2018 with a 14-point lead with 17 games remaining. Finishing the season unbeaten, emulating Arsenal’s “Invincibles” of 2003-04, is also still a possibility.“Maybe Arsene (Wenger) is worried about that,” Guardiola said, “but I tell him many times that 2004 run is for him.” MOST READ That was part of a strange end to the match. Moments after the penalty — contentiously awarded after Wilfried Zaha fell easily under a challenge from Raheem Sterling — came a robust foul on De Bruyne by Jason Puncheon as City launched a counterattack. While both players received treatment, before being simultaneously carried off the field on stretchers, Guardiola took a seat next to Hodgson in Palace’s dug-out and the managers chatted.It was the first time City dropped points since a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Aug. 21.SANCHEZ’S MESSAGESoon after City’s game, and hours before Arsenal kicked off, Guardiola said there would be “internal meetings” over whether the club would make a bid for Alexis Sanchez in light of the injury to Jesus. City failed in a late bid for Sanchez on the final day of the summer transfer window.His display at West Brom would have impressed Guardiola. The Chile forward looked Arsenal’s most likely route to a goal before he curled in a free kick that deflected off the leg of James McClean, who turned his back in the defensive wall, and ricocheted in after 83 minutes.Arsenal was on course to move within a point of fourth-place Liverpool, only for the controversially awarded penalty that left Wenger furious on the touchline. Rodriguez sidefooted his spot kick down the middle to earn West Brom a point.Wenger said the awarding of the penalty was “difficult to accept,” and complained about the standard of refereeing. He also criticized the scheduling of matches over Christmas that left Arsenal with games against Crystal Palace and West Brom in a span of less than 72 hours. West Brom had two more days’ rest than Arsenal from its last game.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours View commentslast_img read more

first_imgThe Ministry of Health has appointed a new communications director. He is Sorbor B. George, who prior to his MOH appointment, has been one of Liberia’s top radio personalities with the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) where he served as director of news. George was a lead presenter of the “Super Morning Show” for more than two years, a release said. He resigned recently due to what many referred to as poor working conditions at the state-owned corporation. His resignation sent a wave of shock as many including Executive Mansion officials expressed regret, describing him as one who showed a high level of “dedication and commitment to duty.” Mr. George has meanwhile termed his resignation as “personal.” Mr. George worked with then Star Radio until it was shut down owing to a “financial crisis.”With such an experienced reporter, producer and presenter serving as communications director, many are of the conviction that MOH programs and policies are now going to be well articulated and publicized.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg Govt gets F grade on ‘accomplishments’, corruption fight – MP

first_imgFour-year APNU/AFC anniversary…cites four-year record of unaddressed scandalsWith the coalition Government giving itself a pat on the back for its accomplishments over the past four years, a People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Member of Parliament has debunked claims that the coalition is addressing issues like corruption.The Government celebrated four years in office on FridayIn an interview with this publication, PPP Member of Parliament Juan Edghill pointed to several scandals that have rocked the Government during its four years in office, scandals which have gone largely unaddressed by the Government.“The APNU/AFC is living in a bubble of self-deception,” he said. “The standards they are measuring themselves by are not standards considered acceptable and normal. Their performance as it relates to governances and rule and law has been pathetic.”“As it relates to corruption, it has affected from the top right down to the bottom. And these are not mere allegations. These are real issues and no amount of playing it down will cause it to disappear. The fact that there was a No-confidence vote against them was a clear case that their scorecard was way below an F grade,” Edghill told this newspaper.Public Infrastructure Minister David PattersonAccording to Edghill, Government has been embroiled in trying to explain the unexplainable. He pointed to the lofty promises they made before they got into office, of their determination to fight for good governance and the rule of law and expressed disappointment in what has actually happened since.“They are incapable of regulating themselves. With the Sussex Street bond, they say they are doing an investigation. They put Government Ministers to investigate, they say better could have been done and after millions, better was not done.”“With D’Urban Park, they try to deceive the people of Guyana that no Government money was spending. Now the Auditor General can’t find receipts for millions. The very same things they say they are not guilty of; they are guilty of.”The Government heralded its four-year anniversary on Friday with a statement hailing its achievements over the time it has been in office.last_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg Northern Health holds board meeting in Dawson Creek

first_imgThe board also discussed LEAN projects being done across the organization. LEAN is a quality improvement approach, used to identify improvements to services and processes to benefit patients and reduce costs. 33 NH projects have been completed over the last two years, focusing on areas like surgical waitlist management, health records management, patient way-finding, emergency room and policy review processes, and medical reconciliation systems. Medication Reconciliation is a process where healthcare professionals partner with clients, their families and caregivers to ensure the accurate and complete transfer of medication information when a patient’s care transitions to a new setting or practitioner.  This work was recently recognized at the provincial level by the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council Award, for its ability to substantially reduce medication errors and improve patient safety. The board also heard about primary care work that is focusing on six northern communities; Prince Rupert, Fraser Lake, Prince George, Mackenzie, Valemount, and Fort St John. This work is aimed at fundamentally shifting how sustainable health services are designed for communities. The planning requires broad community, staff and physician input and engagement and will grow into other NH communities in the future. “These projects lead to improvements that directly affect patient navigation and care”, said Dr. Charles Jago, chair of the NH Board. “The work being done by these cross-functional teams throughout the region reflect our commitment to high-quality, integrated services across the North.” Northern Health held their most recent board meeting in Dawson Creek where they discussed a number of topics that show improvements are happeing in the Northeast.One of those topics includes the development of a Pharmacy Medication Reconciliation system.center_img The latest report from NH’s Chief Financial Officer continued to forecast a small surplus that is expected to continue to the final year-end audit report. Physician recruitment was also a key focus of the meeting. Northern Health has filled an important physician recruitment lead position and new recruitment marketing initiatives will be launched soon. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg Review of federal fossil fuel subsidies appears to be behind schedule

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s promise to produce an inventory of its fossil fuel subsidies as part of a joint peer review with Argentina appears to be off schedule and may not deliver results until 2021, an environmental advocate says.The peer review, which launched in June 2018 as part of a G20 commitment to eliminate all “inefficient” subsides to the fossil fuel sector, never had a specific deadline but was expected to take about two years.A Finance Canada spokeswoman this week would not give any detail on the status of the review, saying only that it was “underway” and would be made public when completed.- Advertisement -Julia Levin, the climate and energy program manager for Environmental Defence, said she has been told by government officials that they think it probably won’t be finished until sometime in 2021.“That’s just too slow,” said Levin. “We have seen no evidence that the government is really making this a priority.”Similar peer reviews undertaken between the United States and China, Germany and Mexico, and Italy and Indonesia took between 12 and 24 months.Advertisement A 2021 completion date would leave Canada with less than four years to hit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s promise of phasing out all “inefficient” subsidies to the fossil fuel sector by 2025. The peer review is seen as a critical part of the process because there is no consensus in Canada between politicians, environment experts and the energy industry about what “inefficient” means or what constitutes a subsidy.Earlier this year, Environment Canada released a discussion document for the peer review that found just four non-tax measures that might be considered a subsidy, but none were inefficient. The measures included aid to lower the cost of diesel for northern communities and funds to help oil companies reduce their own carbon footprint.Finance Canada is supposed to be producing a similar document on tax measures, but the department would not say if that document is finished.Environment groups suggest Canada’s annual aid to the oil, gas and coal sectors tops $10 billion, including tax credits and treatments, direct grants, loans and loan guarantees from Export Development Canada.Advertisement The International Institute for Sustainable Development says that in the 2017-2018 fiscal year, various federal programs offered more than $121 million in direct aid to oil and gas companies for everything from natural gas refuelling stations, to help building carbon capture and storage.In the last year, the government has added aid programs to help the oil and gas industry diversify and expand, including $1.6 billion last December to diversify export markets and $220 million this past June to help LNG Canada buy fuel-efficient gas power turbines for its planned facility in British Columbia.Levin said the $4.5 billion purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline could also be viewed as a subsidy.Levin said the government must become more transparent about funds flowing to oil companies, including how much they get from tax measures like science and technology credits. (The industry argues those are not subsidies, and the government appears to agree, but environment groups say any money helping oil companies produce oil more cheaply conflicts with the government’s tax on pollution on the other end.)“The industry would like this spending to remain cloaked and so far it is despite government commitments about increased transparency,” said Levin.Advertisement The auditor general chastised the Liberals in 2017 for refusing to hand over documents that would help assess the status of the promise to phase the subsidies out. Environment commissioner Julie Gelfand accessed most of those documents earlier this year and concluded Finance Canada and Environment Canada defined “inefficient” too broadly, focused too much on fiscal considerations and not enough on social and environmental issues, and were not looking at every government department and agency.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 14, 2019.Mia Rabson, The Canadian Press The Green campaign platform listed $2.7 billion in tax measures — figures provided by the parliamentary budget office — the party said constitute fossil fuel subsidies.On the other hand, Tim McMillan, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, said Canada has no subsidies for producing fossil fuels. Tax measures available to all companies are not subsidies, he said, adding that the industry is one of the most heavily taxed.CAPP intends to launch a campaign to counter the political rhetoric that fossil fuel producers are constantly being given handouts.“It needs to be addressed and it needs to be addressed bluntly,” he said in a recent interview with The Canadian Press. “We have a role to be pushing back aggressively about anyone that would say something that is not true and is so divisive. Maybe we didn’t take it seriously enough up to this point, but we’re going to from this point forward.”Among the disagreements between environment groups, the government and CAPP are whether federal programs to help companies buy more efficient equipment should be a subsidy. Levin said they are. The government and CAPP said they are not.Advertisementlast_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg END DISABILITY CUTS, SAYS TD PRINGLE

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has today called on the Government to introduce no further cuts to the personal assistance service which provides those with disabilities with the means to live independently.Speaking on the matter today to the Taoiseach at Leaders’ Questions, the Independent TD for Donegal South West pointed out: “As it stands there has been an 11% cumulative cut to date to the Centres for Independent Living which is already affecting the provision of personal assistance. Cuts to CE Schemes which these centres rely on to provide this service have also affected their ability to operate effectively.”“As I speak, we are awaiting the publication of the long overdue Value for Money Review on Disability Services. Yet it’s plain for all to see that continuing to provide people with disabilities with a Personal Assistant is much more cost-effective than any alternative.” “€64 billion is the amount the Irish Government committed Ireland to paying in order to bail out the banks. €64 billion would provide 306 million personal assistance hours for people with disabilities, this equates to financing the largest personal assistance provider in Ireland for more than 150 years.”“Many of the people who rely on this service have already had their allocated hours reduced which has already limited their quality of life. Any further cuts could leave many housebound, or worse, be put in a situation where the only option is institutionalisation.It is very disheartening that the Taoiseach will not make a commitment to introduce no further cuts to this service, yet he has no problem in granting hefty allowances to public officials for clothing and the like. This shows once again just how much this Government is out of touch with the people,” added Pringle.“If we are to treat these people with the dignity and respect they deserve as Irish citizens, then there must be no further cuts to the personal assistance service. The ratification on the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities must also be prioritised in this regard.” “There are people across the country that are fearful of where their futures lie, or if they even have a future. These people deserve better than the lip service that this Government has provided.This “State of Fear” whereby the most vulnerable in our society receive the brunt of cutbacks must end,” stated Pringle.END DISABILITY CUTS, SAYS TD PRINGLE was last modified: July 4th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click 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 share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg Mike Mutebi; The tie is not over

first_imgKCCA FC head coach, Mike Mutebi is confident his side can overturn the 3-0 deficit (file photo)KAMPALA – KCCA FC dug themselves a deep ditch, losing 3-0 to Congolese side Otoho in the first leg of the 2018/19 CAF Confederations Cup play-off round.Unlike in the last round, Mike Mutebi’s side now face a huge task of trying to win by four goals without conceding so as to make it to the group stages of the competition.Speaking after Sunday’s defeat, Mutebi said he is confident his side can overturn the deficit and eliminate their Congolese counterparts but also conceded that they would have to play better.“It is not over, they (Otoho) were just effective in the final third but we were not outplayed at all, said Mutebi.“We did not come here to play a containing game that is why we were attacking so even when we go back home, that is how we will play but we will try to be more effective with the chances we will get.“Hopefully, we will score the required number of goals and progress to the group stages.KCCA will be confident going into the return leg as they have won all of their six CAF Confederations Cup home games, scoring 14 and conceding only four goals in the process.However, none of the six victories have come by a 4 goal difference with the highest being the 3-0 win over Mtibwa Sugar in December.For Otoho, they will come into the game trying to protect their advantage but will have to be cautious after failing to win in any of their three continental away fixtures (D1 L2). In one of the loses, they went down 9-0 to MC Alger of Algeria in February last year.The return leg will be played on Sunday, 20-01-2019 at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.The other Ugandan representative in the competition, Vipers SC, will be away to Tunisian giants-CS Sfaxien a day before.Vipers and Sfaxien drew 0-0 at Kitende on Saturday afternoon.Comments Tags: CAF Confederations Cup 2018/19KCCA FCMike MutebiOtohotoplast_img read more

Category: hohwjcqzvrbyutyg Information sought following theft of tractor

first_imgInformation is being sought following the alleged theft of a tractor in Mountcharles.The Massey Ferguson 35x with a ZIH265 registration was taken from the Doorin Line area of Mountcharles between Wednesday and last night.Owner James Murray says that as the tractor is not running at the minute, it would have needed to have been loaded on to a trailer to be taken. “It’s not running at the minute as it needs an injector pump so whoever stole it would need to replace this to get it running again. Its value is approximately €4,000 but with injector replaced it could be sold for more,” he told Donegal Daily.It was stolen from a yard at the side of a house at the end of a long lane, so James thinks it may have been stolen at night.The tractor can be identified by its rare type of cab which makes it distinct from other 35x models.If you spotted anything suspicious in Mountcharles between Wednesday and last night, or if you spot a Massey Ferguson 35x for sale under suspicious circumstances then please do not hesitate to contact Donegal Town Gardaí on 074 9740190.
