Colombia’s Carlos Sanchez received a red card in the opening minutes of their Group H match against Japan for a deliberate handball inside the box, to become the second fastest to be sent off in a World Cup match.Ex-Aston Villa ace Sanchez was given his marching orders two minutes and 56 seconds into the game when his arm denied his Japanese opponent a clear shot at goal. There was little but no choice for referee Damir Skomina to send the defender off.The fastest-ever though still remains Jose Batista, who was sent off inside the first minute for fouling Gordon Strachan in 1986 World Cup match between Scotland and Uruguay. He was sent off in just 54 minutes.WORLD CUP DAY 6 LIVE COVERAGESanchez became the first player to be red-carded in this year’s World Cup and will surely be suspended for his actions. He could also face further repercussions for refusing to immediately leave the field of play as Colombia’s players protested the decision. He is also the first Colombian to be sent off in a World Cup. Shinji Kagawa stepped up for Japan and slotted the ball past keeper David Ospina to take the lead. Juan Cuadrado was taken off the field to be replaced by Barrios as defensive reinforcement.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGEBut the joy was short lived for Japan as Juan Quintero as Colombia equalised six minutes before the interval when his low free kick squeezed over the line, just past the outstretched hand of diving Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima.advertisementWith the goal Quintero became first player to score in two different World Cup tournaments for Colombia (2014 & 2018). Incidentally there have been more direct free-kick goals scored in just 15 games at this World Cup than there were in the entire 2014 edition.Japan became the first team to beat a South American team with a 2-1 win over Colombia at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk.(With inputs from AP and Reuters)

But we will slowly get back into that.”While Arsenal will be without Ozil ahead of their trip to Premier League champions Chelsea, they will finally be able to call upon Jack Wilshere.Injuries have derailed Wilshere’s career at the Emirates Stadium but the 25-year-old midfielder is set to make his first senior appearance for the club since August 2016, having spent last season on loan at Bournemouth.”You have certainly seen the video of him when we played against Barcelona — his game is about that,” Wenger said.”He needs a little burst to get away from people because he can move the game forward and, if you can move the game forward, you need your legs to get you out of pressure.”That will come back [for him] — it is coming back in training. He is very hungry and sharp. He is not completely at his best, but he is getting there. He enjoys being back and competing for his place and what I see in training is positive.”

We are happy that we have such a backdrop.”It is an opponent who is absolutely on par, a team that has developed very well over the last two or three years.“They are capable of striking at high speed. The English have fast players, the team is very well organised and attack early.”They are one of the best switching teams around – we have to be prepared for that.”We can not believe that we can dominate England with a lot of possession. We have to be well organised and be able to switch quickly ourselves.”We want to make a good game, the result is always important. But I also know… I want to experiment already.

If he is with us, then I want to see him as well.”We have attacking players like Timo Werner, Julian Draxler or Leroy Sane – they are different players. Sandro Wagner plays in the centre, binds and keeps the opponent busy and is very dangerous on the flanks.”
A day after the media’s SEC preseason poll was released, the preseason All-SEC teams have been released. Unsurprisingly, Alabama has the most selections on the conference’s first-team with six players. Ole Miss, Georgia, LSU and Auburn are also well represented.

SEC Preseason Teams SEC Preseason Teams 2 SEC Preseason Teams 3 SEC Preseason Teams 4 SEC Preseason Teams 5 SEC Preseason Teams 6 SEC Preseason Teams 7 SEC Preseason Teams 8 SEC Preseason Teams 9Nothing too surprising. These teams will surely look a lot different at the end of the season, though.
Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Didi Ke Bolo campaign is helping the TMC reach out to people in distress, but at the same time forcing party leaders to handle uncomfortable questions about cut money, arrogance of local leaders and syndicates. As advised by poll strategist Prashant Kishor and his organisation, appointed by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) after its poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls, Banerjee on July 29 had launched a dedicated helpline number and a website as part of ‘Didi Ke Bolo’, to enable people to have a direct interface with party functionaries. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja As part of the programme, over 1,000 party leaders are visiting 10,000 villages to redress the grievances of people. Senior TMC leaders cited examples of Rima Datta of North 24 Parganas district, Samar Mandal of South 24 Parganas district, Ebadur Rahman of Hooghly district, Jagannath Chakraborty of Howrah district and Md Firoz of Jalpaiguri district who had received assistance for medical emergency or getting admission to colleges. “After getting calls from people in distress, we contacted local TMC leaders and departments concerned, who were asked to resolve the issues. All the complaints were addressed within 24 hours,” a senior TMC leader told PTI. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway Even people from West Bengal who were stuck in floods in Karnataka and Kerala were rescued after their location and coordinates were passed on to the disaster management department, the TMC leader said. However, the initiative has also raised some allegations against a section of party leaders. “People have called up the helpline number and complained about extortion, cut money and syndicates. As soon as we received such calls, we looked into their grievances. “Some callers have complained against certain leaders, especially those who have joined the TMC from other parties after we came to power in 2011,” another TMC leader said on condition of anonymity. During the mass outreach programme too, the party leaders are being forced to bite the tongue while answering queries on cut money and alleged arrogance of local TMC leaders, a party functionary said. “We are facing a tough time answering these questions. But we can assure the people that steps will be taken to address these issues,” a TMC leader, who faced such uncomfortable questions, told PTI. Among those participating in the outreach programme are senior party leaders and ministers Rabindranath Ghosh, Jyotipriyo Mullick, Arup Roy, Firhad Hakim, Partha Chatterjee, Sashi Panja, Sadhan Pande, Tapan Dasgupta, Nirmal Ghosh and Abdur Rezzak Mollah. “In some of the areas that we have visited, people are questioning us why we are hesitating to throw out corrupt and arrogant leaders from the party. We will submit our observations to the leadership,” said another TMC leader. Reacting to the development, state BJP president Dilip Ghosh said people of West Bengal are “fed up” with the misrule of the state government and “cut money business” of the TMC. “The questions they are facing are just a mild reflection of the people’s ire towards them. Time is running out for the TMC as people are getting ready to throw them out of power in next assembly polls,” Ghosh said. In the Lok Sabha polls, the BJP has bettered its performance from two seats in 2014 to 18 this year, in the 42 seats of the state. The TMC, which won 22 Lok Sabha seats, has sought “professional help” to refurbish its image in order to counter an aggressive and ideology-driven BJP in the state, ahead of the 2021 assembly polls, sources said.
Rabat – The Casablanca-Settat Regional Council approved on March 6 the draft of the Casablanca-Settat Development Project, with a budget of MAD 115 billion.The project, which was prepared using a study carried out by the consulting firm Valyans, focuses in particular on infrastructure, waste management and transport.“This project is part of the new prerogatives granted to the regions under the provisions of Law 14-111,” said the President of the Council, Mustapha Bakkoury. Bakkoury specified that Article 83 of this law specifies that each region is required to put in place a regional development strategy during the first year of the Council’s mandate.In addition to the establishment of a regional strategy for local development, the Council is also required, under Law 14-111, to establish a Regional Agency for the Execution of Projects.The Council noted that the the development plan of Casablanca-Settat will enable the mobilization and development of all the potentialities of the region, in order to consolidate its position as an economic pole with a national and regional dimension.The council also proceeded to the examination and approval of the report on the implementation of the budget and the minutes of the Council for 2016, the proposed amendment and programming of the appropriations budgeting, and the programming of endowments to the special account of the local human development initiative.
Rabat – After opening its doors for migrants and asylum seekers in 2015, Germany is planning to deport unaccompanied Moroccans, who reached Germany in the three last years. To do so, Germany is constructing centers in north Morocco to receive more than 3000 unaccompanied underage migrants.According to a Germany’s Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) document leaked to the German daily Taz, two centers are being constructed in north Morocco to house the underage migrants returning to Morocco. The housing facilities will accommodate 100 person each.About four thousands Moroccan underage migrants have applied to asylum in 2016. However, only 174 files were accepted. Those whose applications were denied might be deported by Germany under specific conditions: either to have a family member or a responsible guardian to take care of them or an appropriate reception facility in their homelands, reported German news outlet, Deutsche Welle. The number of refugees and migrants who accessed Germany in 2015 is estimated at 900,000.Germany’s Interior Ministry said that it will take in charge underage migrants wishing to leave Germany voluntarily, as well as those who will be forced to leave the territory due to their criminal records.The housing centers constructed by Germany in collaboration with Morocco’s government and NGOs will include health facilities and schooling opportunities for the migrants. These centers will be financed with a EUR 1.05 million budget annually.A huge number of Moroccans entered Germany by pretending to be Syrian refugees in order to enhance their opportunities to stay in the European country. In 2016, Morocco made an agreement with Germany to repatriate its migrants.Migrants from Tunisia and Algeria have also entered Germany through pretending to be asylum seekers. The federal government classified the migrants original countries as “safe” in 2016, which explains the rejection of their request.
After watching a special demonstration of the so-called $100 laptop at UN Headquarters in New York, Under-Secretary-General Cheikh Sidi Diarra praised the scheme’s organizers for their efforts to bring the project to fruition given the sceptical response it met with at first.The project is the brainchild of Nicholas Negroponte, who is on leave from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to head the ‘One Laptop per Child’ initiative.The laptops produced will: have a sunlight-readable display so they can be outside; contain no moving parts; be powered by solar, foot-pump or pull-string powered chargers; and be housed in a waterproof case.Some developing nations have not followed their verbal agreements with concrete orders, so Professor Negroponte has launched a “give one, get one” scheme that will allow individuals to buy two laptops at a pre-determined price and have one of the laptops sent a child in the developing world.Mr. Diarra, who is the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, said that while many challenges remained before the project’s vision could be realized, it was clear it could make a major contribution to the socio-economic development of the world’s poorest nations.He also said it was important for Professor Negroponte and his partners to understand any concerns and questions the Member States may have about the initiative, such as affordability.“Even if the cost was only $100 per child, that is more than most developing countries, especially the least developed countries, can afford,” he said. “In many LDCs, for example, the amount spent on a child’s education in primary school is as low as $5 a year when teachers’ salaries are excluded.” 22 October 2007The ‘One Laptop per Child’ initiative, a pioneering project to give children in poor countries access to affordable computers, is in sight of becoming a reality, the United Nations advocate for the world’s most vulnerable nations said today.

Therefore, SAITM says the proposals need to be discussed at length with all stakeholders to ensure that justice to the concerned parties are met.“Going forward, we hope that SAITM graduates will be given provisional registration, subject to court proceedings and the current students’ education will continue without any disruption to their studies. We also note positively, the vision of SAITM’s founder Dr. Neville Fernando’s to produce quality non state doctors will continue despite enormous opposition from various political and other parties with vested interests,” the SAITM Management said. (Colombo Gazette) Among the matters of concern arising from the new proposals are issues concerning graduates, students, parents and the staff of SAITM. The South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) today reiterated its legitimacy following the statement issued by the Department of Government Information that SAITM will be abolished.In a statement, the Management of SAITM said that the institute was established as a Degree Awarding Institute in terms of Section 25A of the Universities Act of 1978 and is recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE). SAITM was established with the aim of providing quality private medical education in the country to augment the requirement of quality doctors to serve the people of the nation.
“The wishes of the Venezuelan people to participate or not in this election need to be respected,” Elisabeth Throssell, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) told reporters at the regular press brifing in Geneva.“No one should be obliged to vote, while those willing to take part should be able to do so freely,” she added. The OHCHR spokesperson pointed out that demonstrations considered by the authorities to be “disturbing the elections” have been banned until 1 August. “We urge the authorities to manage any protests against the Constituent Assembly in line with international human rights norms and standards,” she continued, calling on those opposing the election and the Assembly to do so peacefully. “We hope that the poll scheduled for Sunday, if it goes ahead, will proceed peacefully and in full respect of human rights,” she said. Responding to questions, Ms. Throssell said the situation in the country is “very tense and difficult.” As such, OHCHR reiterated the call for calm and for peaceful protests and for all sides to use only peaceful means to make their views heard. With regard to the legitimacy of the vote itself, the spokesperson noted that it is “a hugely controversial issue” amplified by the fact that there had been an unofficial consultation by the opposition on the constituent assembly. “[Our] Office is concerned about the environment in which the elections are to take place and believes that a constitutional process can only be successful if based on a broad consensus and the participation of all sectors of society,” Ms. Throssell said.
77 Comments In the 2016 election, Sanders won more votes among young people than both Clinton and Trump combined. In a recent poll by Fox news, Sanders scored a popularity rating of 61%, versus 44% for Trump. The reason behind his popularity isn’t just his integrity, energy or passion and his age (75) appears to be no barrier to his massive appeal both at home and abroad. The answer is that Sanders, like Corbyn in the UK, is a threat to a global order that is inherently corrupt, violent and dominated by those who prey on the poor while pretending to save them. This is the same order that Trump promised to overturn but it was all a smokescreen for a more toxic version of the status quo.While Trump is all too often written off as a fool whose days are numbered, Sanders suggests that the threat he poses is deadly serious. In his talk, he questioned Trump’s praise for authoritarian rulers, such as those of Turkey, the Philippines and Russia. He said Trump’s outrageous claim about mass voter fraud is all part of a wider strategy to disenfranchise young, poor and black voters. And all the while, Trump ramps up the rhetoric about Muslims, seeing no issues with the rise in right-wing terrorism or the hypocrisy of arming the Saudi regime.Sanders also raged against Trump’s cuts to childcare, welfare and healthcare, saying they pave the way for tax breaks for the wealthiest, including a potential $50 billion tax break for the Walton family,who already control more wealth than 40% of all Americans. The Democrats and Republicans have failed the USThis is the United States that, according to Sanders, says both the Democrats and Republicans have failed. It is the only industrialised country that doesn’t give its people the right to healthcare, a situation that is set to worsen. It is a nation with some of the longest working hours in the world, where ordinary workers often have to take two jobs and rely on food banks to get by.It is a country where tens of thousands are indentured into student loans or military service in order to carve out a path to a better life. It is a land where over two million people are imprisoned and, according to Sanders, huge numbers are turning to drug abuse, despair and suicide, while in some parts life expectancy is on the decline.Hillary Clinton didn’t offer a real alternative to this, and this is why, Sanders says, the Republicans didn’t win the election, the Democrats lost it.Asked by a member of the Dublin audience whether the US was ready for a female President, Sanders replied that “the United States is ready for a female President, for a black President, for a gay President, but what we need is a President with the guts to take on the billionaire class.”The parallels with IrelandListening to all this, it was hard not to draw parallels with Ireland, especially since the talk was happening in the vicinity of the IFSC and the Silicon Docks, hotspots of what Sanders called “the race to the bottom” in global tax avoidance. On his condemnation of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, it was hard not to think of Ireland’s continued inaction on climate change. Sanders also referenced Trump’s attacks on family planning services, which are sadly familiar to an Ireland where women’s rights are still denied. This is the same Ireland where abuses by bankers and bishops go unpunished, where evidence is shredded and mobile phones go missing, where there is a witch-hunt on welfare fraud while billions in corporate welfare deals are facilitated. It seems nobody is ever responsible, and few in the political establishment appear to have the courage or conviction to do anything about it. It is no wonder Sanders has such appeal here. For Ireland is increasingly like the United States, and not by accident. We are a country of vast wealth alongside crushing poverty and low wages, as well as homelessness, housing and healthcare crises that are feeding hopelessness. This is the reality that Bernie Sanders says we must resist while mobilising towards the dream of a fair, just and prosperous society. He is not giving up on this dream without a fight, and neither should we.

What if the people of the United States had had a chance to choose a real alternative to a system of casino capitalism that enslaves so many? What if the Democrats hadn’t rigged the process to prevent Bernie getting a party nomination despite him having the energy, momentum and support to go all the way?

Justice Robert Schuster today determined that after having reviewed all evidence, in the police sufficiency hearing there was simply not enough condemning material to move the manslaughter case forward against the two men.Mark Fulford of F Chambers Law firm reported to Magnetic Media that he “argued before Justice Schuster, that the DPP Jillian Williams did not have enough evidence to convict their clients of the manslaughter of Julliot Pierre.”Julliot Pierre, who was 24 year old at the time of his death in July 2017, is better known by his nickname, Haitian Fresh and was chopped with a cutlass during a fight, hospitalized and he later passed away. Originally, his death was classified as ‘unexplained’. The autopsy report later confirmed that the injuries in that fight did cause Pierre’s death and the investigation became a homicide probe.It is widely believed the real killer got away.Magnetic Media is told that the suspected man, who police were hunting for the killing hopped a flight to Haiti and never returned to Provo.In July last year TCI Police were reported as looking for Richard ‘Rich Boi’ Gail in connection to the murder of the Kew Town man. One comment shared with Magnetic Media following today’s outcome said, “Police should have never wasted their time and the people’s resources to charge Clayton Morris and Jermaine Fulford Jr. in the killing of ‘Haitian Fresh’…. The DPP knew quite well the Police had nothing in the bundle against those two by themselves but a much stronger case against the individual that fled the country… Police put out a wanted poster for Richard Gail but it was too late… It is sad that this poor Haitian boy’s life was taken away from him… one cannot rejoice in the victorious results of the sufficiency hearing today… as a young man’s life was cut short.”Photo: Julliot ‘Haitian Fresh’ Pierre, 24 Former PNP Election candidate and businessman calls for swifter reconstruction for Capital, Grand Turk TCI: Three airlifted with gunshot from Provo to Jamaica; attorney activist says try his crime prevention plan
KUSI Newsroom, Posted: February 22, 2018 KUSI Newsroom San Diego Convention Center debuts new colored LED roof February 22, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The newest addition to the city’s nighttime skyline has been introduced at the San Diego Convention Center.The events complex last night debuted new colored LED lights that illuminate the recently renovated Sails Pavilion’s fabric roof. The lights change colors and can be seen from downtown, Coronado Bay and are particularly visible from the air, the center said.“The Sails Pavilion is our Convention Center’s most distinguishing feature,” convention center President and CEO Clifford “Rip” Rippetoe said.“After 28 years in operation, it was time to reinvest and reimagine the space. Not only were we able to conduct necessary maintenance and upgrades without interfering with our business, but we were able to add something new that will make the Convention Center truly shine.”The $377,000 lights are the same fixtures as those used at the Empire State Building.The lights represent the final upgrade at the 90,000-square-foot Sails Pavilion that recently underwent a $16.7 million renovation. Other upgrades were the new roof, a new concrete floor and a new fire-suppression system, according to the convention center.“These upgrades represent an infrastructure investment in one of the greatest economic engines that we have,” Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. “This iconic Sails Pavilion is how so many people — San Diegans and visitors alike — help to identify our great city skyline.” Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter
