They trust Espanyol to take advantage of the fluid relationship that exists with him Benfica, since without going any further a year ago they cited a loan in Cornellà Ferreyra Y Alpha Semedo, to convince the Eagles, which however delay the operation in the absence of a substitute for From Thomas, that although he does not play he can act as a wild card.The Madrid attacker it is an old yearning of Espanyol, which already in summer of 2017 he considered his assignment, as I recognized in AS last December 7 who was then a parakeet sports director, Jordi Lardín. Thomas already lived in a similar position to the blue and white with Rayo Vallecano last season, in which his 14 goals however were not enough to achieve permanence.

And that speed can materialize in a first reinforcement, which is named Raúl de Tomás.Take the Spanish weeks supporting Benfica for the transfer of the forward as a priority to add gunpowder to a equipment who has only been able to score 12 goals in 18 days, with spearheads like Facundo Ferreyra and Jonathan Calleri, They have only been able to score one target each. If for the parakeet club it is a necessity to attract goal, for From Thomas it seems providential a Changes of winds, since, after its transfer from Real Madrid to the Lisbon entity last summer for 20 million, has just entered the plans of coach Bruno Lage: in the League Us has disputed 467 minutes without much.

Jack’s River were the runners-up. Richard Francis, the Three Hills star batsman, who cracked a memorable century in the final, was also named the competition’s Most Valuable Player, while the Most Disciplined Team Award went to the Beaches-Sandals aggregation. Guest speaker at the awards, Jamaica Cricket Board president Billy Heaven, called on the parish associations to change the way they managed cricket in their areas, urging them to develop a more businesslike and professional approach to the sport. “We need to change the mindset in all the associations and parishes,” Heaven noted. “And to this end my association will be looking at the structures and enhancing them.” He added that the JCA was set to change the structure of the local top league, the Senior Cup, in order for Jamaica to be competitive at the regional level and produce players for West Indies and international duties. The JCA president announced plans for the formation of a 6-team Super League made up of the top teams across the island, with a view to having the best players competing against each other.

In an effort to sensitize ordinary Liberians about the ills of corruption, the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) will today, July 17, 2014, commence the first phase of its anti-corruption awareness campaign in market places.The campaign will commence at the Red Light Market and continue to the LBS and Coal Field Markets. The Executive Chairperson of the LACC, Cllr. James N. Verdier, Jr. is expected to officially launch the campaign.The overall goal is to use a bottom up approach in changing the mindset of marketers on corruption and explain to them the evil, causes, manifestations and dimensions of corruption in Liberia.The anti-corruption awareness program will dramatize real life situations such as how patients die in hospitals because they do not have money to give “cold water” for services; how poor people suffer injustice because a Judge takes bribe, how we patronize corrupt officials by honoring them; how marketers inflate prices of goods, and how ordinary Liberians are manhandled because of a police being bribed, amongst others.The LACC intends to take this awareness campaign to all regular market places and “market day markets” throughout the country. The Commission is implementing this pilot project in partnership with the Liberia Marketing Association, Motorcycle Union, Wheelbarrow Union and Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (CENTAL).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A 37-year-old man was yesterday sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison for raping a 5-year-old in 2011, and for threatening her to keep quiet.Tamba Theophilus was 32-years-old when he raped his then 5 year-old victim in August 2011. He sat quietly yesterday at Criminal Court ‘E’ at the Temple of Justice.He previously pleaded not guilty to the crime, a first degree felony that carries a prison term of more than 15 years. He changed his plea after his legal team and state lawyers entered into a plea bargain.At Monday’s hearing Judge Joseph S. Fayiah imposed what family members and other sympathizers of the victim described as a “much lesser sentence than recommended.”Judge Fayiah said prosecutors and Theophilus’ defense team had initially agreed to a special sex-offender sentencing alternative.But he failed to explain conditions of the plea bargain.The alternative sentence apparently was sought to prevent Theophilius’ victim from suffering further trauma by testifying in court.Judge Fayiah further said the agreement between the parties took place on September 14, 2015, relying on the statutory provision contained in the revised Code of Law of Liberia.“The fact is that the court is not a party to the said agreement and therefore the terms and conditions are not binding on it; as well as the power of the court to impose whatever sentence that it deems legal, fair and just,” he said.“The defendant expressed his willingness to accept any final judgment of this court in its wisdom to impose upon him as a matter of law.”After declining the alternative sentencing recommendation, the judge, during sentencing, said: “It is the final judgment of this court that the defendant is adjudged guilty of the crime of statutory rape and hereby sentenced to ten years imprisonment retroactively commencing from August 10, 2011 the date of his arrest and incarceration by the Gardnersville Magisterial Court.“The defendant will serve the last one year of his remaining term of imprisonment under supervised probation, after he shall have served nine of his ten years imprisonment term consistent with the final judgment of this court.“Predicated upon the plea bargain agreement and in accordance with the law, this final judgment takes into consideration the victim’s age of 5 years at the time of the commission of the rape against her by the defendant.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…says petroleum laws do not prevent disclosuresThe coalition A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government has in recent weeks been deliberately and dishonestly setting out to suppress the disclosure of the contractual arrangement signed onto with US oil giant ExxonMobil.These were the views espoused by former President now Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo when he met Thursday with members of the local media corps for a press engagement.According to the Opposition Leader, the national security issues raised by spokespersons of the Government as a reason for withholding the contractual arrangements are nothing but a ‘red herring’ since the delineation of the exploration bloc and other such information are already public knowledge and do not conflict with any of the border issues currently engaging the attention of the Administration.He denounced too as blatant dishonesty the resort of those in Government to seek to hide behind the petroleum legislation which was in fact signed into law by then President Hugh Desmond Hoyte, of the People’s National Congress (PNC).ExxonMobil, for its part, has publicly adopted the position that it would abide by the laws of the country and according to Jagdeo, nothing in the Petroleum Act prevents the disclosure of the contract.He was questioned on what appeared to be his changing position on the matter, but reminded that it was normal for such information, considered proprietary at the time of negotiations, to be withheld.According to the Opposition Leader, now that the negotiations have been completed and a contract inked, there is nothing preventing the release of the contractual agreements and obligations to the wider public.Looking to expose the fallacies being peddled by the Administration, Jagdeo pointed to public reports primarily in the Kaieteur News.He pointed to a report attributed to Minister Raphael Trotman that an amendment to the Petroleum Laws by Jagdeo has in fact prevented the disclosure.Jagdeo used the opportunity to remind that in 1997 he was not President and was further not in charge of that sector which fell under the purview of then President Samuel Hinds. There were two amendments to the Principal Act of 1986, one in 1992 and one in 1997.He pointed too to reports attributed to the AFC component of the coalition, saying that these also represented dishonesty on the part of the Administration.According to the Opposition Leader, the Government has been arguing that it was the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) that amended the laws, ‘and because they have to respect the sanctity of contracts and that’s the law, they cannot release the contract, that it is the PPP to be blamed for us to be in this situation’.He drew reference, too, to what the AFC officials have called strict non-disclosure clauses in the laws which were signed into effect by the PPP/C.According to Jagdeo, there were two amendments inked by the PPP/C, neither of which had anything to do with disclosure of information.The Opposition Leader was adamant that the disclosure clauses embedded in the petroleum laws do not speak to the contract but rather the release of proprietary information – clauses that were brought into force by Hoyte even before the PPP/C had been voted into office.Among the amendments promulgated successfully were one by Hoyte which dealt with the assignment of responsibilities and another by Samuel Hinds which spoke to increased penalties for breaches of the laws.“It has nothing to do with non-disclosure clause,” Jagdeo insisted.He told media operatives that the AFC arm of the coalition, inclusive of substantive Minister Raphael Trotman, “have fooled this country, have been dishonest with the country to say that the PPP put in place a non-disclosure clause and as a result of that they can’t release this contract…that has been their mantra, they said it publicly….they are lying.”He suggested that if those officials were that incompetent so as to not read the Petroleum Act or to act in such a partisan fashion, “then how can they competently negotiate with ExxonMobil, one wonders why all of these excuses”.The Opposition Leader was adamant that based on his Party’s interpretation of the existing laws, they did not speak to the non-disclosure of the contract.Jagdeo suggested that the laws did, in fact, provide for the release of information.“Our interpretation is that this Act only protects proprietary information and that is normal because you cannot allow people to be at the competitive disadvantage.”Jagdeo suggested this as the reason the PPP/C was demanding the release of all oil-related contracts inked and not just the agreement with ExxonMobil.“For months they have thrived on two lies: that the PPP put in place a non-disclosure agreement that prohibits them from making the contract available to the public and secondly, that for some national security reason, they cannot release the contract.”
The proponent selected will have their products specified on detailed design on tender drawings — which will be issued in April 2016, following a detailed design period.Proposals will be received at City Hall, or electronically to email@example.com, no later than 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 18, 2016. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — For two weeks, the City will be accepting proposals for the selection of a supplier for the Spray Park.The City is hoping to find a spray park supplier to assist the City and their Consultants in completing the detailed design of the spray park, based on the conceptual design.The existing Fort St. John Rotary Water Park was constructed and opened in 2001.- Advertisement -“Since its inception, it has become a popular attraction for many City residents during the summer months,” the City says, adding that the park complemented the landscape adjacent to the pool, and the arena.In 2014, the City decided to replace the existing park, due to aging infrastructure of the facility. A conceptual design and public engagement process was undertaken in the fall of 2014, and residents were able to provide feedback related to what they would like to see incorporated into a new spray park.As that phase came to a close, the City has begun with the design and construction of a new park this year.Advertisement
1 Tottenham v Nottingham Forest is live on talkSPORT, kick off 7.45pm.The sheen of Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival as Tottenham boss is beginning to wear off at White Hart Lane. A woeful 1-0 home defeat to West Brom on Sunday is likely to prompt the Argentine manager into making a host of changes for Wednesday’s clash with Nottingham Forest in this Capital One Cup third round clash.With the north London derby looming on Saturday, Pochettino is expected to give a number of fringe players the chance to stake a claim for the massive encounter at the Emirates.Summer signing Michel Vorm is likely to be awarded his competitve debut in goal as Hugo Lloris is given a rare night off, while at the other end Roberto Soldado is in line to replace Emmanuel Adebayor as the Spaniard desperately seeks to discover some sort of goalscoring form.Four games without a win has put the spotlight back on what Pochettino can do to turn the club’s fortunes round, though the former Southampton manager will be looking to strike a balance between gaining confidence with a win and not risking too many players ahead of this weekend’s huge match with the Gunners.It means new signings Benjamin Stambouli and Federico Fazio should both get the opportunity to put their hand up for regular first-team action, with many Spurs fans convinced they will become fixtures in the side this season.Alongside the Frenchman in midfield is likely to be highly rated youngster Nabil Bentaleb with Mousa Dembele playing further ahead. At the back, club captain Younes Kaboul will probably pair up with Fazio as Jan Vertonghen is given more time to be fully fit for the mouthwatering north London derby.Tottenham are not blessed with a wealth of bright talents to introduce into the starting XI, but if the hosts are cruising to victory expect 23-year-old attacking midfielder Ryan Mason to come off the bench.Tottenham’s possible starting XI to face Nottingham Forest:Agree or disagree? Comment below and let us know how you think Spurs will line up against Nottingham Forest. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino
