‘Spurs will have to break wage structure to keep Kane’

first_imgTransfers Tottenham will have to break wage structure to keep Kane – Les Ferdinand Ryan Benson Last updated 1 year ago 20:44 2/14/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Transfers Tottenham Hotspur Harry Kane Premier League UEFA Champions League The England striker’s form continues to attract interest from Europe’s biggest clubs after he impressed again in the Champions League Tottenham will have to break their wage structure in order to prevent Harry Kane from joining the likes of Real Madrid, according to former Spurs forward Les Ferdinand.Kane has developed into one of Europe’s elite strikers over the last few years, with his goalscoring feats helping to elevate Spurs to consistent challengers for Champions League qualification.The current campaign is the fourth in succession where Kane has managed to score more than 20 Premier League goals, with his tally of 23 in 26 appearances suggesting he is on track to beat his personal best of 29 from last term. 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 But the main difference for Kane this season has been his emergence in the Champions League, with his strike against Juventus in Spurs’ impressive 2-2 draw on Tuesday taking him to seven in six games, just two shy of Cristiano Ronaldo.And Ferdinand – who held coaching roles at the club under Harry Redknapp, Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood – when asked whether Spurs will be able to keep Kane for much longer, told Omnisport ahead of the London Football Awards: “That’s the million dollar question.”I think they’ll have to break their wage structure and sometimes you get special talents that you have to break the wage structure for if you want to keep that player.”If Tottenham want to be competitive and continue to finish in the top four, then first and foremost they need to start winning things.”That’s the thing that’ll probably keep Harry because he’s a Tottenham supporter and he wants to see Tottenham win things.”So, if he could be part of that and earn what his quality deserves, when you look at what everyone else is earning, they’ve got a good chance of keeping him.”Harry Kane Juventus Tottenham Champions LeagueFerdinand is also adamant that Kane is already among the very best strikers in Europe, suggesting only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is rivalling the England international in the Premier League at present.”If you look at strikers in the Premier League and Europe at the moment, you have to put Harry up there with best of them,” he said.”He’s got everything he needs for his game. He’s keeping free of injury which is a key thing, but left foot, right foot, headed goals – he scores all types.”If you look at the form guide, it’s probably Salah – who is on fire for Liverpool at the moment, scoring lots of goals – who is the only one that could probably rival Harry in the Premier League.”Ferdinand was speaking after the QPR in the Community Trust was nominated for the LFA’s Community Project of the Year award, after their work to host the ‘Game4Grenfell’ match in support of those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire last June.last_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The Belgium international’s existing deal with Chelsea is due to expire come June 2019 and the Blues have been in talks with the shot-stopper for over a year in an attempt to renew his contract, with a renewal potentially costing them over £200,000-a-week in wages.Courtois has yet to make a decision on his long-term future, though, as he has admitted on more than one occasion that he would like to return to Madrid at some stage in his career.The goalkeeper’s two children live in Spain’s capital following a previous loan spell with Atletico Madrid and Courtois is keen to be closer to his family.Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on Courtois’ situation at Chelsea and his aforementioned ties to Spain mean PSG face an uphill battle to get their man if he does decide to leave Stamford Bridge.Chelsea remain hopeful they can convince Courtois to sign a new and improved deal with the Premier League giants, but their underwhelming performances this campaign could throw a spanner in the works as they are in danger of missing out on Champions League football.Courtois joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011, but spent three seasons on loan at Atletico before displacing Petr Cech as the man between the sticks at the reigning Premier League champions.He has since made well over 100 league appearances for Antonio Conte’s men, winning two Premier League titles and one League Cup in the process.last_img read more

2 days agoChelsea boss Lampard: We’re learning to win without Hazard

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Lampard: We’re learning to win without Hazardby Paul Vegas2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard says his team is learning to play without Eden Hazard.Eden Hazard cost Real Madrid around £89m in the summer but that fee could exceed £150m if he goes on to be the success he was at Stamford Bridge.“Whether I became manager or not, Eden Hazard was not going to be replaced by anyone anywhere near similar to what he did for this club,” Lampard said. “I don’t think it was possible, unless you went to the absolute top, with the [Lionel] Messis and [Cristiano] Ronaldos, because I think Eden pushes them around that bracket.“The next question is: how do we change that? Of course, we’ve seen a bit of youth come through with different ideas. I work consistently on the team as a group that we can create chances from different areas of the pitch. It’s great that a left-back [Marcus Alonso] scored inside the box at the weekend, for instance. So, it will be hard to replace [Hazard] — it’s impossible — but as a team we can find a way and, hopefully, we’re working towards that.” last_img read more

Innovacorp Board Names New President and CEO

first_imgInnovacorp’s board of directors announced today, Aug. 30, the appointment of Malcolm Fraser as the organization’s new president and chief executive officer.

Connecting better

first_imgIn keeping with India’s Neighbourhood First policy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi just concluded his second state visit to India’s protectorate and the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. In a pre-departure statement, the Prime Minister said that “India-Bhutan partnership today is of a special character and substance and forms an important pillar of Government of India’s Neighbourhood First policy”. This visit was made with the purpose to promote valued friendship with the Himalayan state. A time-tested friend, not only is it important to refresh ties with the protectorate state, but it is also necessary to keep Bhutan close and in confidence given the spreading influence of China in the region. Prime Minister Modi reiterated that his visit to Bhutan at the beginning of his renewed term of government reflects the extent of importance the Indian government attaches to its relations with Bhutan. The Prime Minster expressly stated that “India and Bhutan enjoy excellent bilateral ties exemplified by our extensive development partnership, mutually beneficial hydro-power co-operation, and strong trade and economic linkages. These are, reinforced by a shared spiritual heritage and robust people-to-people ties.” The year 2018 marked the golden jubilee of the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between the two neighbours. With 50 years of positive ties behind, the Indian Prime Minister marked his visit to Thimphu also as a gesture to step up their relations. Bhutan is a small country that is exemplarily maturing into a democratic state. Today, Bhutan is the perfect example of a country developing in balance with environmental sensitivities and general well-being of its common people. Its success may be credited to the former King of the state and also to its people, but India too has a significant role to play in bringing Bhutan to where it stands now. Bhutan receives India’s support on several fronts such as development, education, foreign policy, security, etc. Although it has been five decades since the formal laying down of diplomatic ties between the two countries, it is since the time of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru that the two nations have shared strong ties. Also Read – A compounding difficultyA common perspective of the premiers of both nations is that besides government-to-government engagement, the focus must be on people-to-people interaction and development as well. And the beginning of this has to be with regional diplomacy; Ladakh, for instance, is a strategic region which has been sharing cultural and religious values with Bhutan for centuries. With this example of Ladakh and its newly acquired status of Union Territory, it must be emphasised that there needs to in place be a coherent policy dedicated to trans-Himalayan region with respect to development and cooperation. Diplomatic finesse must be the hallmark of reaching out to Himalayan countries in the awareness that non-territorial proximity with China is easier to come by for these regions. A reactionary policy is bound to be counter-productive, as in the example of cancellation of gas subsidy as a punishment for Bhutan’s first Prime Minister Jigme Y. Thinley for meeting informally with the then Chinese premier in 2013. China’s far-sightedness in reaching out to Himalayan regions by means of policies is only too well established globally. The developments in Tibet region, in particular, stand testimony to this. China’s three-pronged strategy comprising local, regional, and government-to-government is deployed vigorously to propagate the mythological conception of Zhangzhung in the western Tibet Autonomous Region as a historical fact. Also Read – An askew democracyPrime Minister Modi’s second visit to Bhutan was a positive event where he was received very warmly by his Bhutanese counterpart Lotay Tshering at Paro airport. A wide range of talks was held between the two state leaders which focussed on steps to expand further their bilateral partnership across various sectors. Ten Memoranda of Understandings were also signed between them to reinvigorate the ties. With the inauguration of the Mangdechhu hydroelectric power plant by Modi, the occasion was also marked by the launch of stamps to commemorate five decades of India-Bhutan Hydropower cooperation. The other areas that the MoUs cover include those of space research, aviation, IT, power, and education. In an economic venture, Modi launched the RuPay Card in Bhutan and symbolically made a purchase at the 1629-built Simtokha Dzong and also planted a sapling there. This place now functions as a monastic and administrative centre and is one of the oldest dzongs (meaning fortress) in Bhutan. India also facilitated a positive approach by increasing the currency swap limit for Bhutan under the SAARC currency swap framework. An additional $100 million will be made available to Bhutan under a standby swap arrangement to meet the foreign exchange requirement. The two state leaders jointly inaugurated the Ground Earth Station and SATCOM network which is developed with assistance from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for utilisation of South Asia Satellite in Bhutan. India also intends to enhance communication, public broadcasting, and disaster management coverage in Bhutan with its space development initiatives. Enabling better people-to-people approach, collaboration between Royal Bhutan University and IITs of India and some other top educational institutions are in the pipeline in order to come together to meet mutual requirements for education and technology in both countries. It is necessary and of great value to consolidate India-Bhutan ties further for the prosperous future and mutual progress of the people in both countries.last_img read more

BJP to torch symbolic bonfire of Kejriwal govts failures and unfulfilled promises

first_imgNew Delhi: The BJP hit back at the ruling Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi over its demand for full statehood to the city, on Tuesday, with Delhi BJP minister saying he will lit a symbolic bonfire of “unfulfilled promises and failures” of the Kejriwal government. Minister slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the issue of full statehood, saying there was “no possibility of statehood owing to antics and drama of Kejriwal.” Earlier Tuesday, Kejriwal charged BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “betraying” people on the issue of full statehood to Delhi.

Eritrean fuel restrictions threaten viability of UN mission warns envoy

25 January 2008Eritrea’s fuel restrictions imposed on the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) is paralyzing the work of the mission and could force it to withdraw from that side of the disputed border between the two countries, a UN official warned today. Eritrea’s fuel restrictions imposed on the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) is paralyzing the work of the mission and could force it to withdraw from that side of the disputed border between the two countries, a UN official warned today.Azouz Ennifar, UNMEE’s acting head, told journalists after briefing the Security Council that the mission has not been able to obtain fresh supplies of fuel in Eritrea since 1 December last year.“These restrictions are paralyzing the mission and its movements and making the living conditions of our civilian and military staff on the ground extremely difficult,” he said.UNMEE is relying on “certain quantities” of fuel stocks it has, but is having to use them sparingly so as to stretch them as long as possible. The number of patrols carried out by mission staff have had to be reduced as a result.In his most recent report on the situation, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recommended to the Council that the mission’s mandate have a one-month technical rollover to assess the situation.Mr. Ennifar said that unless the mission is allowed access to fuel supplies, then a decision will have to be made before the end of next month on whether it is worth continuing to operate on the Eritrean side of the border with Ethiopia, which was the subject of a deadly two-year war that ended in 2000.He stressed that the UN had pursued many diplomatic avenues to try to convince the Eritrean Government to change its decision. read more

Lawsuit by Saints Vilma Against NFL Chief Goodell Dismissed

U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan dismissed Jonathan Vilma’s defamation lawsuit against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello announced by Twitter on Thursday.Goodell and the league sought to have the case dismissed on the grounds that the the league’s collective bargaining agreement prevents players from suing Goodell personally for claims of this nature. Vilma may be able to take other action against the commissioner under the CBA. He filed the suit in May.Vilma, a linebacker for the New Orleans Saints, claimed Goodell tarnished his reputation by making false statements in connection with the league’s “bounty” investigation. Goodell tabbed Vilma as the ringleader of the program, claiming he offered cash to teammates to injure opponents.”Even though this matter has been pending only since May … it feels as protracted and painful as the Saints season itself, and calls for closure,” Berrigan wrote in her decision, according to Yahoo! Sports. ”The Court nonetheless believes that had this matter been handled in a less heavy-handed way, with greater fairness toward the players and the pressures they face, this litigation and the related cases would not have been necessary.”Vilma was initially suspended by Goodell for the entire 2012 season, but was allowed to play while his appeal was being heard. Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove received lesser suspensions.Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue stepped into the proceedings after Goodell recused himself from the second round of appeals. Tagliabue heard the final appeals of the players and threw out their suspensions last month.Neither Aiello nor Goodell released a comment about Thursday’s ruling by Judge Berrigan.Vilma’s lawyer, Peter Ginsberg, wrote in an email to Yahoo! Sports: ”We are obviously disappointed, strongly believe that the CBA does not give anyone — including a commissioner — a license to misrepresent and to manufacture facts, especially at the expense of another person’s reputation — and are considering our options.”Vilma will have 30 days to file a notice of appeal. read more

Football No 4 Ohio State faces off against Tulane in Urban Meyers

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) hands the ball off to redshirt junior running back Mike Weber (25) in the third quarter of the game against TCU on Sept. 15. Ohio State won 40-28. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorIn head coach Urban Meyer’s first game back on the sideline, Ohio State returns home for a matchup against the Tulane Green Wave.The Buckeyes come in after their 40-28 victory over then-No. 15 TCU, led by two defensive touchdowns and a 344-yard effort by redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins.The Green Wave holds a 1-2 record in 2018 and is coming off a 31-24 loss to UAB. Tulane’s sole victory comes against FCS opponent Nicholls State, who lost 42-17.When redshirt senior offensive tackle Malcolm Pridgeon was asked about Tulane, he compared the Green Wave to a certain team the Buckeyes have already faced.“They’re kind of like Rutgers,” Pridgeon said. “They’re a talented team.”Tulane enters the matchup with an offense ranked No. 71 and a defense ranked No.109 in the nation in yards per game. In the running game, the Green Wave’s offense ranks No. 52 with 199.3 yards per game, while allowing the 25th-most.Senior quarterback Jonathan Banks leads the Tulane offense, completing 48.1 percent of his passes for 651 yards and five touchdowns, with one interception. Banks has also run 33 times, but for only 29 yards and a touchdown.Most of those lost yards are from sacks, with the Green Wave having allowed 12 this season. The four per game is tied for third-worst in the NCAA.Ohio State junior safety Jordan Fuller said he expects Banks to bring a style of offense similar to TCU sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson.“He could do it all,” Fuller said. “He’s definitely a threat with his feet, so, he has a strong arm as well.” Wide receivers Darnell Mooney and Terren Encalade are two major threats for Banks to use. The two have combined for 29 of Banks’ 37 completions, including all five of his touchdowns. Mooney’s 308 yards are good for No. 19 in the nation.In the run game, redshirt junior Corey Dauphine and junior Darius Bradwell offer Tulane two strong options at running back. Bradwell has been used more consistently, with 39 carries for 207 yards and a touchdown. But Dauphine has been dominant in 2018, averaging 12.4 yards per carry on 19 rushes, scoring three touchdowns on his own.Redshirt junior defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones said the focus for Ohio State will remain on slowing down the run.“No matter the team, the focus never changes,” Jones said. “Our goal is to stop the run, eliminate big plays and create takeaways always.”The Green Wave has shined in the secondary, tied for No. 7 in the nation with six interceptions this season.“I feel like they’ve got aggressive defensive backs,” redshirt junior wide receiver K.J. Hill said. “We expect a very aggressive game.”PredictionIf Tulane were to pull off the upset of a lifetime — Ohio State is a 37.5-point favorite according to Bovada — it needs Banks to go to Mooney and Encalade early and often to disrupt the Buckeyes’ weakest spot of the team at this point: the secondary.Dauphine and Bradwell could make a sizable impact and a big run, something Ohio State has struggled with, which could open up the passing game even more.Haskins has proved he can do anything but crack under the pressure up to this point, but Tulane’s secondary could make plays to get him off his game.In a perfect world, the Green Wave has a few opportunities to make a dent. But, Ohio State is far too deep and, even without redshirt junior defensive end Nick Bosa, its defensive front should look to dominate Tulane’s lackluster offensive line.Running backs Mike Weber and J.K. Dobbins, respectively, each could have big days against a defense that has failed to cover the run well, and Haskins’ performance against TCU proved his ability to stay composed under pressure.Tulane offers more weapons and talent than both Oregon State and Rutgers, but Ohio State still dominates the Green Wave on paper, and adding Meyer’s return to the mix, the Buckeyes should easily handle anything Tulane has to offer.Wyatt Crosher: 56-17 Ohio StateColin Gay: 63-14 Ohio StateEdward Sutelan: 63-10 Ohio StateRachel Bules: 55-14 Ohio StateChase Ray: 63-17 Ohio State read more

They are currently in production at the company’s Alrode facility and will be supplied via Weir Minerals Africa’s Middelburg branch.These screens are suitable for sizing applications, dense media recovery and dewatering in coal handling plants. They also serve the hard rock industry in similar applications, for example, sizing, desliming, grading and scalping.“They are widely used in these sectors and are ideal wherever linear motion screens are required,” Gunpath says. “The screens are very robust and designed to maximise machine availability.“Although this is well established technology, Weir Minerals Africa is committed to researching continuous improvements in design and performance with the global design centre of origin for screens located in South Africa. The results of current research will be launched to market within the next two years,” Gunpath adds.last_img read more

New Innan platform for safety education will be launched at Euro Mine

first_imgInnan AB says it has taken safety education to a new level by combining their experience in safety with Virtual Reality. By utilising VR, the education can be held in environments mimicking the real world, but without putting the participants in real danger.“We build a virtual environment where the participants can test their skills in various scenarios without any risks for themselves, the equipment or the environment. In addition, it is very cost efficient,” says Nicklas Karlsson, CEO of Innan AB which has developed the solution.Innan AB will demonstrate two scenarios during Euro Mine Expo in Skelleftea, Sweden June 14-16 – putting out a fire and getting to a rescue chamber. Each scenario will be 3-4 minutes long and besides VR glasses and headphones, the participant will use props, such as fire extinguishers. “Our concept is unique as it encompasses visual, audible and tactile senses by using also props, which is something few others do today,” says Karlsson.The prop fire extinguisher is equipped with a motion sensor similar to those used in computer games and the technology used is HTC Vive. The development is done in Skellefteå and the future will see more scenarios for various industries and the opportunity for customers to tailor the education to their own environment. As example, the mine could be filmed and used as a virtual exercise area.“It’s interesting when new technology leads to innovative ideas and we are happy to see Innan AB choosing Euro Mine Expo for launching their new product.” says Jaana Tengman, Project Manager Euro Mine Expo.last_img read more

Deaths of babies at maternity units investigated

first_imghttp://youtu.be/xx4yAFZi8UA(RTÉ TV promotions/YouTube)THE DEATHS OF a number of babies at a Portlaoise hospital will be investigated in a special Prime Time programme this Thursday.These babies were alive at the onset of labour but died either during the labour or within seven days of their birth at a Maternity Unit in Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise. All of the deaths occurred over a six-year period.According to RTÉ, in the cases it examined there were no congenital abnormalities, which means that the babies “did not have a physical condition where their ability to survive was diminished resulting in death”.“Therefore other factors led to their deaths,” it said.FailuresThe investigation points to one report into the death of a baby in 2008 which found there were a number of failings in the care provided by the hospital to both the mother and her child.The report found that there was a failure to recognise when the baby was in distress during labour, and the inappropriate use of a drug used to increase the rate of contractions.A number of recommendations were made in the report to improve patient safety.But despite this, the RTÉ Investigations Unit said it has learned that other babies subsequently died “in very similar circumstances”.The review of these cases also found failings in the care provided, while the care failures in these cases showed “strong similarities” to the failures in the earlier case. The programme finds the hospital and HSE had failed to implement the previous recommendations in full, which may have saved these babies lives.The programme will show that the team discovered that bereaved families were not told by either the hospital or the HSE that investigations had taken place into their babies’ deaths, or that a report had been published.In one case, a mother learned of both the investigation and report five years after her baby died.The show will be broadcast tomorrow at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.Read: Portlaoise hospital cuts services to cut costs>last_img read more

Fat PS3 Owners Can Claim 55 Compensation From Sony

first_imgWho remembers when Sony removed support for running Linux on the original Fat PS3? It seems like a very long time ago and it turns out it is looking back through articles here on Geek.com. I first wrote about it in March 2010, and owners were so upset they decided to sue Sony.The OtherOS functionality of the original PS3 meant you could install a flavor of Linux and turn your games console into a PC. However, on April 1, 2010 Sony released a new firmware update (3.2.1) that removed the feature. At the time, SCEA Senior Director of Corporate Communication & Social media Patrick Seybold explained the decision had been taken to ensure a more secure system.Less than a month later and a class action lawsuit had been filed by Anthony Ventura seeking $5 million compensation. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2011 and then revived on appeal in 2014. Two years on and Sony has finally decided to settle, and it could cost them a small fortune depending on how good Fat PS3 owners are at keeping records.If you live in the US and purchased a Fat PS3 between November 1, 2006 and April 1, 2010 then you can claim $55 compensation from Sony. However, in order to qualify you must produce proof of purchase and proof of use of the OtherOS feature. Alternatively, you can provide proof of purchase and attest that you intended to use the OtherOS feature and receive $9 compensation.JJ Merelo/WikimediaProving you owned a Fat PS3 between the specified dates is pretty simple. Just dig out your receipt, a bank or credit card statement with the purchase listed, or some other documentation showing proof of purchase. Proving you used Linux on your PS3 is more tricky, though. That requires a screenshot of Linux running on your PS3, proof of purchase of Linux, or some documentation that clearly shows it was being used. You’ve got until December 7, 2016 to submit your claim with the required proof on the OtherOS Settlement website.The actual settlement won’t be approved until January 24, 2017 and then the judge may decide not to allow it to go ahead. However, if it does and your claim is approved, cash payments will be sent out approximately 40 days later, so you’ll have your cash in March 2017.I can see there being a lot of rejections based on the Linux use evidence not being good enough. I can also see a lot of Photoshopping happening in the coming weeks attempting to mock up the perfect Linux on PS3 screenshot to accompany a Fat PS3 receipt.last_img read more

Open House Ministries’ day care uses sensory toys to help make learning fun, provide calm

first_imgVikkilynn Rolfs realized she needed to take a different approach.Instead of relying on traditional forms of teaching in the day care center at Open House Ministries, a shelter for homeless families on 12th Street in Vancouver, Rolfs has opted for a more modern approach.That includes using sensory toys to teach and calm the children. In May, Open House won a $5,000 grant from the Vancouver Energy Community Fund to support the day care’s “sensory calming project.” Rolfs, the day care director, used the money to bolster the center’s selection of sensory toys. She still has about $1,000 left to spend.“These kids just weren’t getting it,” said Rolfs, who has also taught kindergarten. “I thought, ‘Let’s just approach it differently. Let’s make everything sensory. Give them things to play with, so everything seems like a game instead of sitting and learning.’ ”The new sensory toys include building block magnets that come in different shapes, a pad that changes colors when kids step on it ,and a table that lights up as kids roll sensory beads around its top.There are also weighted pads that kids can press on and lay across their laps. That’s in addition to the weighted vests that can help calm kids who are having a tough time. The pads and vests are used for both education and peacekeeping.last_img read more

No Government issued Alert 100 Haitians land illegally in Provo

first_imgPrison photo: CBS NewsMountainside phot0: IrishTimes Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#100illegalslandinprovo, #haitijailbreak, #nogovernmentalertcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 1, 2016 – More than 24 hours now, and Government authorities have not issued one alert to the general public about the illegal landing of a suspected 100 Haitians in the north western end of Provo.   Residents had been expressly concerned about any attempts at Haitians breaking into the country via boat due to a recent prison break in Haiti, where a security guard was killed, and as many as 174 inmates were on the loose.Though it is said by Border Control Minister, Donhue Gardiner to Magnetic Media that more than half those prisoners were recaptured, it still leaves half on the run.   The illegal boat getting in, possibly with guns or drugs or both or none at all on board, causes residents to question border security again as this is arguably the third boat in 2016 to have been undetected by the Coastal Radar.Add to this, Immigration Officers are holding two Haitian men, who are in the country on work permits for allegedly helping the over 100 migrants to escape and hide.   The men’s vehicles were found with wet seats around 1 a.m Monday and it is believed they dropped off the migrants in an area known as Polato Yard behind Carrington’s Commercial complex on Millennium Highway in Blue Hills.last_img read more
