Euro 2016: Fabian Schaer leads Switzerland to 1-0 win over Albania

November 26, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgAn early goal by defender Fabian Schaer earned Switzerland a 1-0 victory over debutants Albania whose captain was sent off before halftime in the Euro 2016 Group A match on Saturday.Switzerland, bidding to reach the knockout stages for the first time, scored in the fifth minute and were given a further boost by a second yellow card for Albania skipper Lorik Cana.SCHAER HEADER BEATS THE KEEPERThe Swiss took the lead when goalkeeper Etrit Berisha rushed out to clear a corner, but could only lunge at centre back Schaer who rose unchallenged to head in.Cana’s dismissal for a second yellow card after a handball in the 36th minute seemed to have more or less sealed it for the Swiss, whose keeper Yann Sommer had brilliantly prodded out a shot from striker Armando Sadiku five minutes earlier.After Cana’s exit, Switzerland besieged the Albania goal, also hitting the post, and could have been two or three up at the break.The Swiss had several chances in the second half kept out by Berisha, notably in the 66th minute when striker Haris Seferovic was put through with only the keeper to beat.With 15 minutes to go, Albania’s Italian coach Giovanni De Biasi threw on Sokol Cikalleshi as a second striker and within a minute Sadiku hit the side netting from a narrow angle.ALBANIA FAIL TO EQUALISEAlbania’s golden chance to equalise came three minutes from time when substitute Shkelzen Gashi sprang the Swiss defence and had time and space to think, only for Sommer to expertly parry his over the bar.advertisementIt was only the second Euro finals victory for Switzerland and the first one with any meaning as they joined hosts France at the top of Group A.Swiss Granit and Albania’s Taulant Xhaka became the first brothers to play against each other in a European Championship. The game also featured a host of other players with Albanian roots who could have opted to play for either side.Albanian fans were initially the most vocal inside the stadium in Lens, periodically booing midfielders Xherdan Shaqiri, Valon Behrami and others they felt should have been playing for them.Albania, who have now failed to beat Switzerland in seven attempts, will travel to Marseille on Wednesday to face hosts France. Switzerland face Romania the same day.last_img read more

CN Railway resumes talks with union after threatening a Monday lockout

by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 22, 2015 2:28 pm MDT CN Railway resumes talks with union after threatening a Monday lockout AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) and Unifor are set to resume contract talks Monday in the face of a threat by the company to lock out nearly 5,000 employees.Statements from both sides said there were high level discussions on Sunday and the two sides agreed to continue talking.CN says it hopes to reach a negotiated settlement or to persuade the union to agree to binding arbitration.The railway said Friday that it intends to lock out the 4,800 workers represented by Unifor at 11 p.m. Monday unless the union agrees to binding arbitration to settle contract differences.The union, which has announced plans to begin a strike vote next week after the failure of five months of negotiations, rejected the company ultimatum.A union statement says there was “meaningful dialogue” on Sunday between Unifor National President Jerry Dias and CN President Claude Mongeau.Last week the Teamsters reached an agreement with Canadian Pacific Railway after a one-day strike. That deal made a number of improvements, including rail safety and working conditions.The agreement came after the federal government moved to bring in legislation to end the strike.A statement from federal Labour Minister Kellie Leitch made no hint of such a move in the CN talks. It only said Leitch has been in touch with both sides and welcomed the resumption of negotiations.She said both sides have promised that commuter rail service in Montreal will not be affected by any work-stoppage. read more

Nearly 900 reportedly killed following shocking intercommunal attacks in DR Congo

October 2, 2019 0 Comments

Human rights reports suggest that the apparent massacre took place between 16 and 18 December in four villages in the Yumbi territory, Mai-Ndombe province, in what appear to have been clashes between the Banunu and Batende communities.Most of the area’s population has reportedly been displaced, and voting in the December 30 presidential poll for the Yumbi area, was postponed due to violence and insecurity.In a statement, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights condemned the “shocking violence” and highlighted the importance of “investigating and bringing the perpetrators to justice”.Michelle Bachelet added that it was essential to “ensure justice for the victims of these horrific attacks, but also to prevent new episodes of intercommunal strife, and to address the anger and feelings of gross injustice that may otherwise lead to repeated cycles of violence between communities.”At least 82 people were also injured in the attacks, according to the “credible” reports received by OHCHR and some 465 houses and buildings were burned down or pillaged, including two primary schools, a health centre, a health facility, a market, and the local office of the independent electoral commission, known by its French acronym, CENI.Both the OHCHR and national judicial authorities, have launched investigations into the reported attacks.At the beginning of January the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR reported that 16,000 people from DRC had arrived in neighbouring Republic of the Congo – also known as Congo-Brazzaville – after fleeing deadly intercommunal clashes.According to UNHCR, this represents the largest influx of refugees in over a decade, since 130,000 people were forced to seek shelter amid ethnic clashes in DRC’s former Equator Province, in 2009. read more

Essex seaside village outraged after being used in proTrump campaign advert

September 25, 2019 0 Comments

Penelope Read, who filmed a documentary called Jaywick: A Diamond in the Rough in 2016, said she would be happy to show the candidate around.She said: “In the last couple of years since we did the documentary the council has tried really hard to improve things. Jaywick is starting to really go forward and it makes me really cross when it gets this bad publicity.”Of course there are things that are wrong currently but they are being improved.”A spokeswoman for Mr Stella said in a statement: “Our intent was never to smear the town in the photo, now known to us as Jaywick Sands in Essex.”We never used the name. For us it was an example of a town overburdened by poor governance, which is exactly what we in our district are seeking to prevent at every level.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Residents of an Essex seaside village have said they are horrified after a pro-Trump campaign advertisement used a picture of it to warn voters that this is what America could look like if they did not back the President.The photograph shows Jaywick Sands, near Clacton in Essex, to attack Dr Nick Stella’s Democrat opponent.It suggests the area pictured is suffering “foreclosures, unemployment and economic recession”.It reads: “Only you can stop this from becoming reality! Help President Trump Keep America on Track and Thriving. A Vote for Foster is a Vote for Speaker Pelosi. We can’t go back to foreclosures, unemployment and economic recession!”The Republican is standing in the 11th Illinois congressional district in the mid-terms against Bill Foster.The advert was posted on the candidate’s Facebook page, and received a frosty reception from Essex locals.According to the government’s deprivation index, Jaywick was the most deprived neighbourhood in England in 2010 and 2015.However, Essex County Council has taken action since then, ploughing £6.5million into the town to improve infrastructure.Paul Honeywood, Tendring District Council Cabinet Member said the village’s fortunes have changed, and it is unfair to use that image in a negative campaign.He told the BBC: “I know that many Jaywick Sands residents will be outraged at being smeared in this way and rightly so.” read more

EYEWITNESS True colours…

When Jupiter insisted folks can change? Venus disagreed and proved him wrong. Still don’t remember? She changed a cat into a girl who married a hunk of a fella and was as demure as could be. “Ha!” said Jupiter. But as soon as Venus introduced a mouse at the wedding buffet, the girl pounced on it! Nature will out!Well it does look like the PNC’s nature has taken over, and is pouncing. The essence of the PNC’s rule was their fixed belief that Guyana was theirs to have and to possess (not just “hold”!). “Do wha’ yuh want wid me!” is what they heard as soon as they took control of the state. So you’re upset with all the “thiefin’” going on? The Pharma bond… Jubilee Wood Ants Park… pharma contract… secret oil contract… trips for Minister’s squeezes… jobs for the boys and girls? Why are you fretting? If the state is the PNC’s to begin with — to do with as they want, it’s not REALLY stealing, is it? You can’t steal what’s already yours, can you?So on to the latest escapade to raise eyebrows — Prezzie using State House to host a PNC event. In this case, to award bursaries for the kids of PNC members. The former AG claims that all the expenses for the actual bursaries were also funded by the state. But we don’t need to even go there, do we? In any government in a modern democracy, there is a strict line drawn between the party and the state.Why? Well just consider the name “party”. “Part-y”, get it? A political part-y represents a PART of the country – and that’s why they’re said to be “part-isan”. But when that party is elected into government to control the state, it’s supposed to be governing on behalf of ALL Guyanese. To use State House for partisan purposes is especially heinous and eviscerating of democratic standards, since it goes against all that the STATE is supposed to stand for. WE THE PEOPLE…Now you may say this handing out of awards to kids – albeit PNC kids – is “no big thing”. But that would show you’ve forgotten that other nursery schooldays story. Remember the elephant who begged the fella to allow him to just place his TRUNK into his hut, because it was cold? And before the fella knew what was going on, he was out, and the elephant was IN the hut!!Do you, dear reader, remember the PNC, under which Prezzie earned his spurs, actually started innocuously with Burnham’s picture on children’s exercise books?They soon declared their PARAMOUNTCY over the state!…and the Weinstein syndromeWith actresses coming forward daily to reveal the sexual harassment  (and more) inflicted on them by the boss of Miramax — Weinstein — one of the biggest producers of Hollywood, one wonders what kind of monster he was. But in reality, the problem’s much larger than Weinstein.What’s being exposed is “sexual harassment” — a term coined only in 1975, even though the activity’s been going on for centuries. It was so “normal” for men to believe they could touch or commit other inappropriate actions towards women there wasn’t even a name for it. Do fishes have a word for “sea”?? And if there isn’t a name, then how do you talk about it? Until a staff at Cornell University sued the institution for employment benefits after she’d resigned because of the behaviour by several male staff. Cornell protested there was no law broken. She may have been ‘asking for it”!!After she won her case, the use of the term hit a high spot in 1991, when Anita Hill testified against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Hill.And now.…for public officeEven though it was pointed out the Secretary of Cabinet and the Defence Board CONSTITUTIONALLY can’t be MPs or Ministers, the PNC-led government SNICKERED, “So what?” read more

You wont be able to buy a petrol or diesel car in

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgYou won’t be able to buy a petrol or diesel car in Ireland after 2030 NCT certs will not be issued for non-zero emissions cars. Norway has set an ambitious target of ending the sale of new cars with combustion engines as early as 2025.Norway, a large oil and gas producer, has introduced numerous incentives to encourage the purchase of electric cars. Buyers pay almost no tax, making the sale price very competitive. This has led to zero-emission cars making up 20% of new car sales.There is no mention in the Irish plan of a rebate or tax scheme to incentivise early purchasers, but car buyers can get a grant of up to €5,000 on an electric car currently.With AFP reportingRead: Project Ireland 2040: The key points you need to know Image: Shutterstock/jorik Feb 16th 2018, 5:41 PM THE HUMBLE PETROL and diesel car will have seen its last days in Ireland if the Project Ireland 2040 plan comes true.The plan, announced today, commits a total of €22 billion to climate action, with the bulk of that – €13.7 billion – being spent on energy investment.A further €3 billion will go towards retrofitting homes to make them energy efficient, but €200 million has also been set aside for the provision of infrastructure for electric vehicles.This would include new charging points.The plan says that by 2030 the government aims to have the number of electric vehicles on the roads at half a million – around a quarter of all cars on our roads.However, the plan goes one step beyond that and proposes that no non-zero emission vehicles will be sold in Ireland after 2030.After that, no NCT certs will be issued for non-zero emission vehicles after 2045. 52% of Ireland’s overall transport emissions come from private cars.A number of car manufacturers have already begun moving to no- or low-emission vehicles. Volkswagen says it will invest €34 billion in new technologies by 2022. Like other traditional carmakers, Volkswagen is stepping up its focus on the cleaner, smarter vehicles of the future, racing to catch up with US tech giant Tesla which has a head-start in the area.The plan is similar to one announced in January by California Governor Jerry Brown. The US state aims to “dramatically reduce carbon emissions from transportation”.France has said it will end sales of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040 and Volvo Cars plans to start phasing out production of conventional petrol-only cars from 2019, with all new models to be electric or hybrid from that date.

Neuer Bayern Munich should have scored more goals

September 17, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgBayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer believes they had the chances to end the game before the last explosive end to their 3-3 Champions League draw with AjaxA Robert Lewandowski goal handed Bayern the lead in the first-half, which they held on to until 61st-minute when Dusan Tadic equalised for Ajax.The Serbian forward then added another through a penalty before his Ajax team-mate Maximilian Wober and Bayern’s Thomas Muller were sent off.Then, in the space of eight minutes, three goals came in with two coming from Bayern to hand them a temporary lead before Nicolas Tagliafico’s last-gasp equaliser for Ajax.While the draw was enough to confirm Bayern as Group E winners, Neuer was left to rue the bitter end after conceding so late in the game.RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Robert LewadowskiMatch Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).“Taken altogether it was a hard-fought and passionate match,” Neuer told the club website.“Ajax are a good team, we saw that in the first match. We had our chances, especially in the first half, we should have scored a few more goals.“It was very explosive towards the end. It was quite bitter to concede the last goal.

PandoDailys Sarah Lacy on Digital Publishing Startups Like Chewing On Glass

September 14, 2019 0 Comments

first_img“You have to be a masochist,” says Lacy of starting a media business in today’s market. Despite the early and fast-growing success of PandoDaily, Lacy contends it’s telling how dominant old-media brands still are 15 years after “old media” was first proclaimed dead. Lacy says it has to do a lot with brand trust and intention—something she claims the new media companies have in spades.“Whether it’s us, Vox or BuzzFeed—they have the right intentions, smarter business models and more capital behind them,” says Lacy. “With the last generation of media companies, it was a lot of people who wanted to be entrepreneurs rather than journalists.”Nevertheless, Lacy claims while founder/CEOs like her are the best bets at running new media companies well, it doesn’t behoove all great journalists to break off from established media brands.“Not everyone has to start their own company—you can Voltron up,” says Lacy. “If every great journalist peels off and starts their own company, they’re ultimately not writing very much. Five or six really amazing journalists can band together and be worth so much more.” New York—PandoDaily founder and CEO Sarah Lacy took to the stage for an afternoon keynote at FOLIO:’s MediaMashup event Thursday to explain why entrepreneurial journalism isn’t new, why it would be terrible if all the best journalists started their own media companies and why she could still taste blood in her mouth two years after starting her company.“If you’re going to start a company, the number-one thing to know—as hard as journalism itself is, as hard as breaking a big story is, as hard as dealing with editors is—actually building a company around journalism is about a million times harder,” Lacy told the audience.PandoDaily, founded in January of 2012, offers readers news and analysis of the technology market, as well as commentary on Silicon Valley happenings and the latest startup companies. Her reference to tasting blood comes from a quote by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk who described starting a business as “staring into the edge of the abyss while chewing glass.”last_img read more

Penske Media Corporation Buys Into Robb Report

September 14, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgRobb Report will soon be run by a joint-venture between Penske Media Corporation and its existing owner, Rockbridge Growth Equity. PMC’s investment is scheduled to close this week. Rockbridge Growth Equity and PMC will have equal representation on the board of directors, according to a spokesperson. PMC — which owns serveral verticals including Variety and WWD — will also be involved in day-to-day operations at Robb Report. Former Dennis Publishing and Newsweek Daily Beast exec Stephen Colvin succeeded Curtis as CEO in late 2015 before departing after less than a year on the job. It was announced today that Colvin is joining Bloomberg as head of Bloomberg Live.  The companies will also merge some offices, with Robb Report’s New York operations moving to PMC headquarters at 475 Fifth Avenue, and its Malibu offices moving to the PMC Tower located at 11175 Santa Monica Boulevard. Robb Report will retain its current management team, though no replacement for Colvin has been named since he clandestinely left the publication in fall.  “[This] allows us to focus our combined energies on expanding Robb Report’s digital capabilities as well as continuing to improve its print distribution channels and event activation to deliver optimal consumer and advertiser experiences,” Brian Hermelin, managing partner of Rockbridge Growth Equity, said in the announcement.center_img In an announcement late last week, the companies described the move as an investment in the future of digital at the 40-year-old luxury magazine.  Robb Report also has offices in Florida and Detroit, the latter of which opened when the magazine was acquired by Rockbridge in 2014. Rockbridge bought the magazine from William Curtis, who took ownership in 2002. Curtis remained a co-owner and vice chairman after that acquisition, though it is unclear what role he will play now. A spokesperson declined to comment on whether Curtis still owns a stake in the company. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.last_img read more

Lady Gaga pregnant with Bradley Coopers baby Heres the truth

September 5, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgLady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star is BornLady Gaga (@ladygaga/Instagram)Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s name has been linked ever since they both starred in A Star Is Born. There are several who claimed that the movie and his on-screen chemistry with Gaga has cost Bradley his relationship with Irina Shayk. As per a shocking alleged claim, Lady Gaga is reportedly expecting her first child with Bradley Cooper. Fans are now wondering if this is the truth or this is yet another fabricated news about their personal lives.The latest report:As per an alleged report by InTouch Weekly via NewIdea, an alleged insider has reportedly stated that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are expecting their first child together. The alleged insider went on to contend that “Gaga is glowing and hiding a baby bump.” The source continued that everyone close to them is happy and are waiting when she is going to announce the great news.So, are they going to get married? Well, the alleged insider added that both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have parted ways with their respective partners but “tying the knot is not exactly at the top of the list of their priorities right now but a baby could solidify their relationship.”The fact:Ever since Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starred in A Star Is Born, many claimed that there is something going on between them. After their intimate performance at the 91st Oscars, several even concluded that the “Shallow” singers are reportedly dating each other. That time, Gaga was engaged with Christian Carino and Bradley was in a long-term relationship with Irina Shayk.Things became worse when right after the Oscars, Lady Gaga and Christian Carino ended their engagement, and Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk also reportedly parted ways.But are Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga dating each other and expecting a child together? Well, it should be noted that these two have maintained that there is nothing going on between them. The intimate performance at the Academy Awards night was a part of an act and these two are simply co-stars who later became friends. To put a label to this friendship is clearly wrong. Furthermore, if you are following Lady Gaga on her Instagram, you would see that she has recently uploaded a picture from her Park Theater Las Vegas show. In the picture, she is seen singing/dancing alongside her team — there is no baby bump in the picture. So, it looks like the claims about Lady Gaga’s pregnancy is nothing but fabricated news.last_img read more

Qatar responds to demands after extension of deadline

September 3, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgDoha : A general view taken on July 2, 2017 shows the corniche of the Qatari capital Doha. AFPQatar on Monday responded to a list of demands from Saudi Arabia and its allies after they agreed to give a defiant Doha another 48 hours to address their grievances.Details of the response were not immediately available, but a Gulf official told AFP that Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani had delivered it during a short visit to Kuwait, which is acting as a mediator in the crisis.Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt had announced in the early hours of Monday they were pushing back a deadline for Qatar to agree to a list of 13 demands they issued on June 22.A joint statement said they were extending the ultimatum, which had been due to expire at the end of the day on Sunday, at the request of Kuwait’s emir.The demands included Doha ending support for the Muslim Brotherhood, closing broadcaster Al-Jazeera, downgrading diplomatic ties with Iran and shutting down a Turkish military base in the emirate.Sheikh Mohammed had earlier said the list of demands was “made to be rejected” and on Monday British lawyers for Qatar denounced the demands as “an affront to international law”.”They are reminiscent of the extreme and punitive conduct of ‘bully’ states that have historically resulted in war,” said the lawyers.In the evening, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir expressed hopes for a “positive response to be able to resolve the crisis”.Qatar’s reply would be “examined with precision”, Jubeir told a news conference with German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel in the Red Sea city of Jeddah.Saudi Arabia and its allies announced on June 5 they were severing ties with their Gulf neighbour, sparking the worst diplomatic crisis to hit the region in decades.They accused Qatar of supporting extremism and of being too close to Saudi Arabia’s regional arch-rival Iran, which Doha has strongly denied.The crisis has raised concerns of growing instability in the region, home to some of the world’s largest energy exporters and several key Western allies who host US military bases.The UN Security Council has told Qatar to sort out its differences with its Gulf neighbours, China’s UN ambassador Liu Jieyi said in New York Monday, indicating that the top UN body has no plans to get involved in the dispute.’Disunity could weaken’ partiesGabriel, who will also visit the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Kuwait, on called for “serious dialogue” to end the crisis.”We are worried that the distrust and the disunity could weaken all the parties concerned as well as the entire peninsula,” said the German minister.Riyadh and its supporters have already severed air, sea and ground links with Qatar, cutting off vital routes for imports including food.They also ordered Qatari citizens to leave their territories and took various steps against Qatari firms and financial institutions.It is unclear what further measures will be taken if Qatar fails to meet the demands, but the UAE’s ambassador to Russia Omar Ghobash warned last week that further sanctions could be imposed.As well as taking steps to expel Qatar from the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council, Riyadh and its allies could tell their economic partners to choose between business with them or with Doha, he told Britain’s Guardian newspaper.Qatar has long pursued a more independent foreign policy than many of its neighbours, who tend to follow the lead of regional powerhouse Saudi Arabia.- Trump calls leaders -Doha has said it is ready for talks to end the crisis.Kuwait, which along with fellow GCC member Oman has not cut ties with Qatar, has been heading up mediation efforts.US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has also called for compromise and hosted senior Gulf officials, but his efforts have been undermined by remarks from President Donald Trump apparently supporting Riyadh’s position.Trump spoke separately on Sunday with the Saudi king, Abu Dhabi’s crown prince and the Qatari emir about his concerns over the dispute, the White House said.The US president “underscored that unity in the region is critical” but also “reiterated the importance of stopping terrorist financing and discrediting extremist ideology,” a statement said.Egypt said it would host the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE on Wednesday to discuss the crisis.Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani is expected to visit Paris “before the end of the summer” for talks on the Gulf crisis with President Emmanuel Macron, the French presidency said Monday.The two leaders spoke by phone and Macron said hhe would bring up the issue on the margins of this week’s G20 summit and with Trump when he visits Paris on July 13-14.Meanwhile Germany announced that Saudi King Salman had cancelled plans to attend the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg.last_img read more
