Spain’s Hostility to Kosovo Forces UEFA to Move Youth Games

first_imgNYON, Switzerland (AP) — Spain’s refusal to respect the flag and anthem of Kosovo has forced UEFA to move qualifying games in the Under-17 European Championship.UEFA says the four-team group will no longer be played in Benidorm and Alcoy next month because “the national symbols (flag and anthem) of Kosovo are not recognized/authorized” in Spain.UEFA says the games, also involving Greece and Ukraine, will “most probably” be moved to Switzerland.Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008 is still not formally recognized by some European countries which have their own issues with separatist regions.Spain’s latest hostility to Kosovo follows government promises in November to the International Olympic Committee to respect athlete rights.The IOC intervened after Kosovo symbols were prohibited at the karate world championships in Madrid.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Suresh Wangjam talks about India tactics

Central midfielder Suresh Wangjam stressed that India have put the 3-0 loss against USA behind them as they get ready to face Colombia in the second group league match of FIFA U-17 World Cup.”It’s part of the game. We have to forget the score-line. Our mind is now focused on the Colombia game,” he said after India’s training session at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Saturday.The defender also shrugged off suggestions that the team initially was overawed by the occasion.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. “We were not nervous. We were very excited. Sunil Chhetri himself told us that he would give 15 years of his career to play at a World Cup. It was a big occasion, the first time we played in front of 45, or was it 60 thousand? This is a World Cup in India. We enjoyed the moment,” he remarked.The midfielder also stressed that the team needs to improve its supply-line to the forwards and can’t rely on defending in their own half for the full 90 minutes”You can’t defend for the full 90 minutes. When they attacked, our backline did well in getting back and defending. But we need to improve on our final pass. We have to make more passes to the striker. That is something we’re working on,” he said.Suresh informed the team’s strategy was to keep the score-line goalless till the half-time and then try pouncing on counter-attacks, but the penalty turned out to be the turning point.”Our plan was to sit back in our own half and wait for the counterattack. Our mindset was to keep it 0-0 at half-time or have a lead. But we conceded a penalty in the end, which was the turning point,” he opined.last_img read more

Aguero or Jesus Pep’s toughest call

first_imgManchester City Mendy injury forces me to pick either Aguero or Jesus – Guardiola Dom Farrell Last updated 1 year ago 22:39 11/20/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) AgueroJesusCropped Getty Images Manchester City Premier League Sergio Agüero Leicester City v Manchester City Manchester City v Feyenoord Leicester City Feyenoord UEFA Champions League Pep Guardiola feels Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero both deserve to play but Benjamin Mendy’s injury complicates matters at Manchester City. Choosing between Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero is Pep Guardiola’s toughest decision at present, but the Man City boss says both star strikers will have to get used to spending time on the bench.Aguero has 10 goals in 12 appearances across all competitions this season, during which time he has established himself as City’s all-time leading goalscorer.Jesus 2/1 to score 1st vs. Feyenoord Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The Argentina star looked on as an unused substitute as Brazilian team-mate Jesus joined him in double figures for the campaign by opening the scoring in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Leicester City, which preserved the Premier League leaders’ unbeaten record.This run began with Guardiola using Aguero and Jesus in tandem but it is now a case of one or the other inside in-form wingers Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane.”For me it is so tough to leave Gabriel or Sergio out, so tough,” the City boss said ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League match against Feyenoord, where a better result than Shakhtar Donetsk manage at Napoli will guarantee top spot in Group F.”But we play with just one striker and I have to change something. There are a lot of games and they have to be ready and prepare well, especially sometimes when they are on the bench and the situation is not good – be ready to try to win the game.”20 – Gabriel Jesus has been directly involved in 20 goals in his 21 @premierleague appearances (15 goals 5 assists). Intervention.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 18, 2017Guardiola made it clear his change of approach in attack is based solely upon losing full-back Benjamin Mendy to a knee ligament injury.The former Monaco favourite made an instant impression at City with his lightning raids down the left flank, a factor that allowed Guardiola to select a narrow frontline.Fabian Delph has deputised superbly for the absent France international over the past two months but does not provide the same kind of attacking threat, leaving Sane to supply the natural width.”In that moment [when Aguero and Jesus played together] we had Mendy and when you have Mendy you [the left-back] play wide and the winger can go inside,” Guardiola explained.”Without Mendy, Delph cannot do that and you have to go wide with Sane. That is the only reason why they don’t play together.”City have already qualified for the last 16, leading to speculation Guardiola could hand European debuts to highly rated youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden – the latter playmaker having seen his stock rise as a star performer in England’s Under-17 World Cup triumph.#PEP: Phil Foden can play in many positions but not central defence!We don’t have a big squad. It is not easy to play 12 games in a short space of time.I will like to see how we will react – how players will play in different positions than they are used to playing.— Manchester City (@ManCity) November 20, 2017″They are two young players who I see in the training session every day they are ready,” the former Barcelona boss added. “If not, they would not be training every day with us.”They have to have quality to be with us. It is not to have fun and be gentle with the guys from the academy.”The skills are there, the qualities are there. What we can help them with is the speed. The lack of time to think is quicker in our training sessions. Phil has to fight the duels with Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva.”They have had a lot of games and competitions coming up now and they have to be ready because sometimes a manager makes surprises.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)The biggest knock on Jim Harbaugh is that he’s struggled to win against ranked opponents. We’re only in the fourth week of the college football season, but Urban Meyer believes Michigan is in a must-win situation this afternoon.Michigan won its first two games against Middle Tennessee and Army. It’ll be much harder to defeat Wisconsin on the road in Madison.Harbaugh’s crew enters today’s matchup as the underdog.Meyer understands that Michigan isn’t favored over Wisconsin. Nonetheless, the former Ohio State coach believes this is a must-win game for the prestigious program in Ann Arbor. “At some point it has to happen. They have to go on the road and they have to win as an underdog. I think this is a must-win game. They have to go to Madison and win today.”You can watch the full segment from FS1’s Big Noon Kickoff here:”We expect to beat Wisconsin, but they must win this game today to make it to the CFP.” @CoachUrbanMeyer and @CharlesWoodson break down the importance of today’s game for Michigan ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/DiSmVvevQf— FOX College Football (@CFBONFOX) September 21, 2019The Wolverines have looked pretty sloppy on offense in their first two games.

Central Bank Governor sees no pressure to lift rates

The central bank on Sept. 26 kept benchmark interest rates unchanged at a four-year high as bad weather across the South Asian island pushes up prices and dents growth. Coomaraswamy signaled he is willing to look through that supply disruption. Rates were raised in March to quell inflation and bolster the rupee. The International Monetary Fund said on Sept. 29. that Sri Lanka needs to remain vigilant on inflation and tighten policy if needed. The next monetary policy announcement is scheduled for November 7. The Central Bank doesn’t see any pressure to tighten policy even as inflation accelerates on the back of a severe drought and poor weather, Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy said in an interview to Bloomberg.“We feel our monetary policy stance at the moment is OK,” Coomaraswamy said in an interview in Washington on Friday. “There is no demand side pressure that we see.” “While one can be cautiously optimistic, it’s important to realize it’s a fragile recovery,” Coomaraswamy said.The government plans to sell a foreign currency bond early next year and hasn’t yet decided which currency to borrow in, Coomaraswamy said.“We are agnostic, we will look for the best deal,” he said. The tenor will be 10 years at least and options include yen, renminbi, dollars and others. Sri Lanka in May successfully sold $1.5 billion of debt overseas, after getting more than $11 billion of orders. Inflation accelerated to 7.1 percent in September, above the central bank’s target, as the worst drought in 40 years followed by the most severe flooding in more than a decade disrupted supplies and fueled price gains.The economy will grow between 4 percent and 4.5 percent in 2017, Coomaraswamy said last month, lower than his June projections of 4.5 percent to 5 percent. According to the IMF, growth will likely be below 4.5 percent this year and rebound in 2018 as weather-related woes pass and infrastructure projects pick up, IMF mission chief Jaewoo Lee said in Colombo Sept. 29 after holding discussions on the third review of Sri Lanka’s $1.5 billion program. read more

DavidsTea shareholder demands answers on Segals leadership CEO search

MONTREAL — A major DavidsTea shareholder says the founder’s takeover of the board of directors at the beverage company will cause it to continue to lose good employees and fall far behind its potential.TDM Growth Partners, which holds 12 per cent of the company’s shares, sent a letter to three independent directors giving them five days to respond to questions about adverse developments since Herschel Segal replaced the board at the June annual general meeting.DavidsTea to be sold in grocery stores following deal with LoblawDavidsTea director Roland Walton resigns from boardDavidsTea founder wrests control of retailer, pledges path to profitabilityTDM says the shakeup led to the immediate termination of the CEO, resignations from three senior executives and two independent directors, and potential delisting from the NASDAQ as it has too few independent directors on its audit committee — among other things.The group asks multiple questions about the search for a new chief executive, including why it was delayed.It also asks why the company issued a statement rejecting a lawsuit filed by another shareholder, Porchlight Equity, against Segal and his private company Rainy Day Investments, when DavidsTea is not a named defendant.The group says it believes DavidsTea is an outstanding brand, but will founder under Segal’s leadership. read more

UN senior official welcomes arrival of female police contingent in Cote dIvoire

“The Police Division welcomes this contingent of highly qualified female officers. The goal of the United Nations, since 2009, is to have at least 20 per cent of our police service female by the end of 2014,” the UN Police Adviser, Ann-Marie Orler, told the UN News Centre.“We are only half-way there globally and in Côte d’Ivoire, but more deployments like this will make it possible,” she added. The contingent of 15 female police officers from Rwanda is the first formed police unit to serve with the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) since it was established in 2004 by the Security Council to facilitate the peace process in the country, which was split by civil war in 2002 into a rebel-held north and Government-controlled south.In the aftermath of the post-election violence that followed the 2010 presidential polls, the mission is assisting the West African nation with a number of key tasks, including the restoration of law and order, national reconciliation, the holding of legislative elections, and economic recovery.The addition of the formed police unit brings the total number of police officers serving with UNOCI to 484, including 45 women with the arrival of the 15 Rwandan officers.According to the UN Police Division, the world body’s policing activities have expanded rapidly over the last decade. Not only has the United Nations almost tripled the number of police authorized for deployment – from less than 6,000 to more than 17,500 – but UN police mandates have also become more multi-dimensional, including roles such as safeguarding law and order while facilitating the launch of domestic police services, as well as more traditional role of advising and mentoring.“I very much hope that other Members States will continue to increase the number of female officers that they deploy,” Ms. Orler added. read more

Brock talk to focus on data smart cities

Smart cities are built on data. But who owns that data and what are the rules governing its collection, use and ownership?Natasha Tusikov, Assistant Professor of Criminology at York University and author of Chokepoints: Global Private Regulation on the Internet, will address these and other questions surrounding data governance during a talk at Brock on Friday, Oct. 19.Natasha Tusikov will speak at Brock on Friday, Oct. 19.Held from noon to 1 p.m. in Welch Hall 202, her presentation will look at how data is governed in smart cities and with what implications.For instance, when companies build and operate smart-city systems like traffic control or energy management, how does the collection and use of data within privately run (often proprietary) systems affect public policy and government regulatory activities? Tusikov’s talk titled “Governing Data in Smart Cities” will focus on her research project on data governance in smart cities with a focus on Sidewalk Labs’ proposed smart city in Toronto’s Quayside neighbourhood.The talk is part of Brock’s Department of Political Science Speaker Series, which runs monthly throughout the academic year, with the exception of December and April.For more information on this and other talks in the series, email political.science@brocku.ca read more

Campaign testing the Yanacocha SART plant with highcopper feed solution

first_imgNewmont Mining operates the Yanacocha mine in Perú and the gold milling section of the property includes a Sulfidisation-Acidification-Recycle-Thickening (SART) plant to remove copper from pregnant leach solution. Since its commissioning in 2008, the plant has been intermittently operated as needed to remove copper upstream of a carbon adsorption circuit. However, starting in 2015 Newmont expects the plant to operate on a more continuous basis in response to higher copper ores that will be processed in the gold mill. In anticipation of this, Newmont conducted a campaign in May 2014 with stockpiled high-copper ore to evaluate performance of the SART plant with elevated levels of copper in feed solution.A paper at this week’s SME Annual Conference in Denver presented results from the campaign that demonstrated the SART plant is capable of efficiently treating high-copper leach solution. During the campaign, leach solution copper levels ranged from about 100 to 700 mg/litre, and copper removals ranging from about 56% to +99% were achieved. The median copper removal efficiency observed during the campaign was about 94%. The primary plant modification determined necessary following the campaign was the need to improve consistency with sulphide dosing.last_img read more

Every point counts as Leinster take aim at JJ Hanrahan and Saints

first_img 14,890 Views By Sean Farrell Share Tweet Email ‘I’m giving thought to everywhere’: Move abroad still among options for Jamie HeaslipWe’ve revamped the Score Centre on the The42 app Updated at 08.00THERE IS NO Champions Cup pool more delicately poised going into this weekend’s pivotal third round of games than Pool 4.Top meets bottom when Leinster visit Northampton at Franklin’s Gardens tonight (19.45, BT Sport), yet only two points separate the sides.“So literally every little thing matters, every point does count and we have to make sure we realise that,” said Leinster head coach Leo Cullen after naming his team early before flying to England.“We’re going out to win the game, clearly, but when you’re in the situation you need to make sure you can get what you can out of it.” Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOA win would be more than welcome. Leinster haven’t experienced victory on the road in Europe since Ian Madigan kicked seven penalties in Castres in 2014. Six defeats and a draw have followed since.However, there’s no better example of a good salvage job well done than Leinster’s last outing in Europe, when they fought back late on to claim a losing bonus point despite being overpowered for an hour in Montpellier. Cullen had a wry smile as he cast his mind back to a case study of what can go wrong when the foot eases off the pedal. It was his last season as a player and he’s pondered the different paths his final lap might have gone.“This fixture, three years ago when we put 40 points on Northampton over there and then to lose the following week, and just the knock-on effect that had.“We had a bonus point (position) towards the end and Jamie Elliott got that breakaway try to deny us a bonus point which meant all of a sudden we had to play away in a quarter-final against Toulon — which happened to be my last game of European rugby I’m afraid.” Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOLeinster will have to claim these valuable points without Jonathan Sexton of course, but Robbie Henshaw and Sean O’Brien have returned from the injuries that kept them from facing the Wallabies for Ireland.In Sexton’s place, Joey Carbery will get another big chance to shine in the number 10 jersey, but it’s the solid choices of a game manager that Cullen has demanded first and foremost from the Athy man. He’s no Johnny Sexton, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing for the eardrums of those closest to him:“He’s not as grumpy as Johnny, that’s for sure,” joked O’Brien.They’re different types of players, they’re different people. For a young guy he’s extremely calm and composed.“He’s directed us around well this week and in previous weeks too. He’s an excellent player, he has a bit of everything.“He’s a long way to go still, I think, to being the finished article, but he has a lot of very good attributes and he’s a great lad as well.” Source: James Crombie/INPHOCaptain Isa Nacewa will have the kicking tee to ease some pressure from Carbery’s shoulders and outside him will be – with Jared Payne on the long-term injured list – the duo likely to form Ireland’s midfield in the Six Nations: Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose.Northampton will have a familiar face tasked with unlocking the partnership, Kerry’s JJ Hanrahan giving the midfield a playmaking presence alongside the power of Luther Burrell. That’s as much young Irish midfield talent you would dare hope for in an inter-provincial clash, never mind a seismic Friday night Champions Cup match. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOWhile Saints coach Jim Mallinder has had to hold heavy hitters like Dylan Hartley and Teimana Harrison in reserve – not to mention George North after his worrying concussion last weekend – Cullen has selected a team full of pace and energy in a bid to start fast and further dent the hosts’ confidence.The head coach insists internationals Zane Kirchner and Mike McCarthy were fit and available, but he has instead gone without a recognised second row among the replacements (though Rhys Ruddock and Jack Conan have operated there) and given the excellent and very in-form Adam Byrne his European debut.“It’s great to see Adam and his development this year. He came through a number of years ago and just got an unlucky run of injuries. He broke his leg, came back and broke his other leg. So he  was a bit stunted in development, but he works really hard and I’m delighted with the way he’s progressed this season. He’s fully deserving of his opportunity.”Having suffered in last year’s tournament, Leinster have an excitement opportunity as a collective tonight: to grab control of Pool 4. Northampton Saints:15.
