Never before had there been two Madrid-Atleti in a row without a single goal and, if this result were repeated, it would be the first season of Real Madrid with six goalless draws (Atlético, Betis, Barcelona, Athletic, Athletic and Athletic) from 1981-82 (with Boskov on the bench).A good runMadrid has linked 20 consecutive official matches without losing for the tenth time in its history.

TTCB president not on board with decision

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board president, Azim Bassarath, says he disagrees with the decision to sack Denesh Ramdin as Test captain and hopes the move is not part of any plan to target Trinidadian players. The outspoken West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) director also said he was not a part of the WICB directors’ teleconference last Wednesday when the decision to remove Ramdin was ratified. Ramdin was on Friday axed after just 15 months in charge and replaced by one-day skipper, Jason Holder, a recommendation from selectors which the WICB said had been “endorsed unanimously” by directors during the teleconference. But Bassarath told the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday he had not attended the meeting because of his commitments as a returning officer for Monday’s General Elections here. He also contended that Ramdin should have been allowed to lead the squad on the tour of Sri Lanka starting next month, so selectors could further assess his performance. “I think we should have given him another opportunity to tour Sri Lanka as captain and then look at his performance if the selectors had a problem,” Bassarath was quoted as saying. “What is shocking to me is that earlier this year, Denesh led the team against England and we came away with a credible draw. “Against Australia we lost 2-0, but I didn’t think he performed that badly with the bat that he deserved being dropped. I am disappointed that the selectors came up with that recommendation. Very, very disappointed.” The 30-year-old Ramdin, who took over from Darren Sammy as Test captain in May last year, led West Indies in 13 Tests – winning four, losing seven and drawing two. During that time, he managed 472 runs at an average of 22 and a highest score of 57. Bassarath said he hoped Trinidadian players were not being specifically targeted because of their alleged role in last year’s controversial abandoned tour of India. “I am hoping the (WICB) president (Dave Cameron) is not part of this move to spite and victimise Trinidad and Tobago players because of what transpired in India where Dwayne Bravo was captain and it is alleged that some of the Trinis were leading the charge,” Bassarath said. “I hope it also does not have anything to do with Baldath Mahabir and the TTCB not supporting Mr Cameron for the presidency of the WICB. I would hate to think it has reached that level where the TTCB, which was considered the best territorial board in the Caribbean – and I still think we are – that we are treated in this manner.” He added: “I would not sit down idly by as a WICB director and allow any victimisation and vindictiveness creep into West Indies cricket.” Bravo was last December sacked as one-day captain and replaced by Holder, and also dropped from the one-day squad for South Africa and the subsequent World Cup. Fellow Trinidadian Kieron Pollard was also axed from the one-day squad. VERYDISAPPOINTEDlast_img read more

Siryon, Tugbeh US$92K Bond Still Undecided

first_imgSuspended NHA MD, Duannah Siryon and his (also suspended) Deputy Managing Director for Administration, Tugbeh C. Tugbeh.Defendants Duannah Siryon and Tugbeh C. Tugbeh, the suspended managing director and deputy director for administration of the National Housing Authority (NHA), respectively, may likely face difficulty if it were to be established that the US$92,000 bond filed were insufficient, and does not meet the requirement and standards of law as may be claimed by the prosecutors.The bond, posted before Criminal Court ‘C’  by the Sky International Insurance Corporation, was intended to prevent  Siryon and Tugbeh from going to  jail, and to attend all required court appearances. However, if the bond were to prove defective, it means the court will set it aside until same is made adequately sufficient. However, the court is yet to say when it would hear arguments concerning the merit of the bond.Siryon, Tugbeh and one Ambassador Augustine Weah, believed to be the chief executive officer of Guss Group of Companies, were indicted on multiple crimes that ranged from theft of property, economic sabotage, bribery, criminal conspiracy, and criminal solicitation for allegedly extorting US$92,000 from a man identified as Emmanuel Tapsoba, former coordinator for a Burkinabe company called GHLPAZ-IMMO, which has been in the country to construct over 5,000 housing units along the Roberts International Airport (RIA)/Monrovia Highway.In the indictment, it further alleged that GELPAZ-IMMO through its Chief Executive Officer Alain Z. Zoungana, had expressed interest in the growth and development of the country through a proposal to construct over 5,000 housing units along the RIA/Monrovia Highway.Shortly afterwards, prosecutors claimed Siryon was contacted through GHLPAZ-IMMO’s former coordinator, Tapsoba, regarding the company’s intention to build said structures in the country since Siryon was at the time managing director of the National Housing Authority (NHA).The indictment further said between August 16, up to and including September 16, 2018, the defendants, with criminal intent, organized a scheme in which they extorted money from GHLPAZ-IMMO under the pretext of offering the contract.Because of the scheme, the record said Tapsoba GHLPAZ-IMMO’s coordinator left Burkina Faso for Liberia with the amount of US$50,000 on September 23, 2018, for the purpose of bribing officials of the NHA to have them “soften the ground” for his company.The indictment claimed that during the same period, an executive of the company, Benao Bazonon, traveled to Liberia from Burkina Faso along with one Urban Planner and Demographer, with an additional amount of US$42,000 and delivered the money to the company’s coordinator Tapsoba, who later reported sending money to Weah as part of the softening exercises.Not being satisfied with the process, the document claimed that Tapsoba presented an amount of US$80,000 to Siryon when they both met at the Royal Grand Hotel to liaise with other government officials.Immediately after Siryon received the money, the court’s record claimed, he invited Weah and gave him US$20,000 to be delivered to Siryon’s office the next working day, while the remaining US$60,000 was left in the possession of Siryon. It was claimed that Siryon divided the US$60,000 among some government officials.Weah’s US$20,000, the record said, was distributed to the two other managing directors, Tugbeh and Roberts.It was during the distribution of the money, the document claimed, that confusion broke out among the managers, leading to the discovery of the scheme.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA new row has erupted between Dept. of Agriculture officials and Hill Farmers Group after a deal removing a key clause of conflict on commonage payments has collapsed.Commonages around Errigal may be boycotted by Donegal farmers.At the same time the farmers have accused a senior official in the Dept. of Agriculture of tearing up the agreement they say was brokered in good faith.The Tirconail Tribune reports that Hill Farmers said that a deal had been reached in mid September between themselves and representatives from the agriculture minister’s department to scrap the collective agreement criteria for commonage farmers entering the GLAS farming scheme. The breakthrough would have allowed farmers to apply for the scheme as individuals. However last week the group was told at an information meeting in Maam Cross that this was not the case and the collective agreement issue was now back in the mix.And the Hill Farmers now believe that a major crux has also developed insofar as the legal terms of the Dept’s regulations for commonages are concerned. It is thought there are issues around any reduction or dilution in landowner’s rights and value of property if they opt out of the new CAP deal and are excluded from payments.We understand that the commonage row has now reached a crisis point to the extent that the Minister for Agriculture will have to intervene in a last ditch effort to stop a total breakdown in relationships between the groups.And as the Hill Farmers threaten to restrict access to walking routes on their holdings in retaliation for the latest debacle in the Rural Development Programme, Brendan Joyce who is leader of the group led a mass walkout from a last week as the deal began to unravel and hill farmers found themselves in no man’s land over a deal they says is unworkable. Henry O’Donnell who has played leading part for the breakaway group said they are shocked and stunned that one official had the power to tear up a deal but he warned they will not accept his decision.He said the amendments for agreement were established during a meeting between the Minister for Agriculture’s commonage implementation committee and the hill farmers for action group. Under these new proposals farmers would be able to apply as individuals for GLAS declaring agreement complying with a GLAS commonage management plan.If the deal does finally collapse, Mr. O’Donnell explains that all walks over farmer property will be stopped because landowners will withdraw their support and Donegal will also be affected as well as a number of other key cycle routes in the west of Ireland including the renowned Greenway route in Mayo.It would appear that the Hill Farmers have already made plans for action in Donegal. We understand that a number of key attractions where commonages exist in Inishowen and the climbs on Muckish and Mount Errigal may be boycotted until the issue is resolved.Henry O’Donnell said that the lands on places like Muckish and Errigal mountains belong to local farmers and these territories are commonages. In mid September, O’Donnell confirmed to the Tribune that a deal had been agreed between the hill farmers and officials from the Dept. of Agriculture implementation body.The decision to drop the entry requirement was taken in mid September, following a meeting between hill farmers’ representatives and the Commonage Implementation Committee. Under collective agreement, 50% of commonage farmers had to agree on a farming strategy for a commonage area before they could apply for the new GLAS scheme. The breakthrough would have allowed farmers to apply for the scheme as individuals, although they would still have to agree to a management plan for the commonage as a whole.O’Donnell and supporters of the Hill Farmers Action Group, which led the protests, welcomed the reversal by the Department of Agriculture. However, he stressed that some issues remained to be ironed out.DONEGAL FARMERS’ FURY AS COMMONAGE DEAL COLLAPSES was last modified: October 8th, 2014 by StephenShare 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)Tags:commonage dealdonegalfarmerslast_img read more

If you’re becoming more active during or after cancer treatment, you’ll need to consider how much activity is appropriate for you.This will depend on different things, for example any side effects or symptoms you may have and your level of fitness before treatment.It is important to set yourself realistic goals and to listen to your body and you should start with gentle and low intensity activities.You’ll be able to build up progressively as you become stronger and fitter.There are a number of tips that can help you to get started.They’ll also help you stay motivated; Join an activity group or association.Walk or cycle to the shops.Keep a record of how active you’ve been.Set goals you can achieve.Take up activities you enjoy. Make sure they are fun.Tell your friends about it.  They may want to join you.The activities you do will depend on different factors. Make sure you keep to the level of activity that is appropriate for you and choose activities you enjoy and, if possible, do a mix of activities:Aerobic exercises – walking, dancing, running, cycling or swimming – are good for heart health.Resistance exercises – lifting small weights or ‘sit to stand’ exercises that you can do at home – help strengthen muscle.Flexibility exercises – stretches, yoga, Tai Chi/ Qi Gong – improve suppleness. These are also great for balance.If you are living with advanced cancer, being physically active can benefit you. It can help improve symptoms such as tiredness, poor appetite and constipation.It reduces stress and helps you sleep better.Start slowly and gradually build up the amount you do.To begin with try to reduce the amount of time you spend sitting or lying down. Just moving around the house and doing simple day to day things will help.You may be able to manage short walks or gentle stretching exercises.See if you can get your family and friends to join in with you.Resistance exercises can help strengthen your muscles and bones.This helps with getting in and out of chairs or baths, going up and down stairs, and going shopping.It also helps reduce the risk of accidentally falling. There are chair-based exercises that can help improve your muscle strength and flexibility. Example from the evidence;An RCT in Glasgow offered a 12 week group exercise sessions for women with early stage breast cancer as an addition to standard care.8The study found significant improvements in physical functioning, active daily living, shoulder range of movement, cardio-vascular fitness, positive mood, and breast cancer-specific quality of life. There were no adverse events reported. There was also evidence that the intervention group spent fewer nights in hospital and made fewer visits to their GP than the control group.  It’s important to get advice before you start becoming more active.Your cancer doctor, GP or specialist nurse can tell you what type of exercise is most appropriate for you.You can also get support from a physiotherapist or an occupational therapist.Your physiotherapist can show you exercises that will help improve your fitness and an occupational therapist can show you ways to help you to save your energy so that you can take some gentle physical activity.Good evidence exists to support the promotion of physical activity throughout the cancer care pathway.Activity should be promoted to patients at all stages of cancer from initial diagnosis through to the later stages, where being active can continue to benefit physical function and quality of life. The evidence shows that if an activity recommendation is carefully tailored to the individual, and takes account of potential side effects, it is likely to have a positive impact.#TrainSmartIf you are unsure how to start or would like to join a friendly and supportive team, contact me through the link below.
