Lewandowski Matching Latos record is nearly impossible

first_imgPoland legend Grzegorz Lato’s tally of 7 goals in a single major tournament is something that not even Robert Lewandowski feels he can matchThe prolific goal-scorer has scored over 40 goals across all competitions for Bayern Munich in three consecutive seasons and became the all-time record goalscorer for Poland in their World Cup qualifying campaign, in which he scored 16 goals.However, Lewandowski has only been able to represent Poland in two major tournaments throughout his career in Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 –  which yielded just two goals in total.The 29-year-old is expected to lead the charge for the White and Reds in their opening game against Senegal today.But he insists that the days of reaching records like the legendary Lato’s are now gone.Paul Pogba, Manchester UnitedPerez admits Real Madrid tried to sign Lewandowski & Pogba Andrew Smyth – September 12, 2019 Florentino Perez has finally admitted that Real Madrid unsuccessfully tried to sign Robert Lewandowski and Paul Pogba, but remained coy on Kylian Mbappe.“That kind of tally gives you immortality. Times have changed, though, and from that perspective seven goals is very hard to beat. It is harder near the penalty box now. To score five or six goals at such a tournament is a huge task. Two years ago, at Euro 2016, I only had two or three good chances and scored one of them,” he told The Guardian.The forward admits that opposition defences often pay particular attention to him and he is expecting more of the same at Russia.“Defenders give special attention to me and that can obviously happen again in Russia,” he said.“If that is the case, I just want our team to benefit from it. History is history and it is nice to look back and remember, but we want to be remembered and write our own history. We will fight for beautiful memories.”last_img read more

Manchester City risk losing Phil Foden for pennies

first_imgJuventus have reportedly marked Manchester City prodigy Phil Foden as the next transfer target, hoping to take advantage of a contract flawThe highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder is considered one of the hottest prospects in European football following his stunning performance with England U-21.A product of Manchester City youth academy, Foden has come through the ranks at the Etihad Stadium, having already booked 9 Premier League appearances under Pep Guardiola.However, considering he is still only a teenager, the Bianconeri are looking to exploit his status, and take him away from Guardiola’s hands.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.According to The Mirror, Foden has a ‘miserable’ £175,000 release clause included in his contract, which would virtually take no effort from the reigning Serie A champions to acquire his services.In addition to Juventus, a few more international clubs are monitoring the situation.After losing Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund, the Citizens can’t afford another misjudgment, especially knowing how much the wealthy owners invested in the youth sector over the past few years.Therefore, Guardiola has to come up with an idea how to bind the prosperous youngster under massive pressure from abroad.last_img read more

Ewing, yesterday, made representation on matters of governance as it relates to the Overseas Territories and particularly, as it relates to the Turks and Caicos Islands.The address was delivered to members of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the presence of other Overseas Territories Leaders, who are gathered in London this week to attend the Joint Ministerial Conference 2015.The Premier’s address, which was delivered in part (due to time constraints) but later submitted, read:“Members of the FAC it gives me great pleasures of address you all here this morning on behalf of the British Overseas Territories on the issue of governance.“The Overseas territories enjoy a long period of relationship with the United Kingdom Government ranging from Bermuda in the early 1600s to the British Antarctic Territory as recent as 1908.“The territories have in common the Queen as the head of state who is represented in the territories by a Governor or such person appointed by the FCO whose authority varies across the territories ranging from limited reserve powers in areas of foreign affairs, security and defense to those far reaching powers and responsibilities extending into the internal administrative governance of the territories which often overshadow the roles and responsibilities of locally elected government.“These governance and administrative arrangements are laid out within each territory’s constitution where the good governance framework also receives its genesis and are refined by subordinate good governance legislations giving birth to good governance bodies.“Even though each overseas may territory differ greatly from each other in size, population, economy, administrative capacity and level of political maturity, each territory has a right to self determination and self governance based on the settle will of the peoples of each territory and this self determination include the choice to remain a British OT. The British government has the responsibility to ensure that the territories are protected and are provided with a constitutional and governance framework that ensures good governance and supports progressive move towards self governance in whatever form.“The constitutional construct varies greatly between the overseas territories and the rationalization for such construct seems haphazard and reactionary to circumstance in many instances and not based on the principles of the UK’s responsibility as laid out in the UN Convention and principles of modern democracies and good governance.“There are many territories who feel strongly that the reserve powers of the governor are too wide in scope and overreaching into the daily executive decisions of the territory. There are many territories who feels that the governor has too much influence in the legislature in addition to veto powers.“There are many territories who feels that the UK’s persistence as borne in the constitutional construct, to separate politics from governance the territories undermines the ability of locally elected politicians to deliver their political mandate and a shift in decision making powers to the FCO.“There are many overseas territories who are concerned about not only the reserve powers of their governor but also the method and criteria used for the selection of their governor as this impacts heavily not only on the style of governance but the extent of interference of the governor outside of their constitutional remit.“Ladies and gentleman I have spoken broadly on governance arrangements and concerns that you may find across the OTs, so I now turn my attention specifically to the Turks and Caicos Islands to highlight such governance concerns.“The Turks and Caicos Islands as a UK Overseas Territory was administered via its own Governor since 1972 after the Bahamas went independent and in 1976 gain its own constitution that permitted elected ministerial system of governance.“The Turks and Caicos Islands has had its constitution suspended twice for allegations of maladministration and corruption as was discovered in two commissions of inquiries. There are many including myself who still question the need for suspension of the constitution as a necessity to intervene and correct and weakness in governance as whatever failures there were did not have its origin in the constitution. The elected government of the TCI believe in and embraces the good governance bodies that have been implemented prior to and during the direct rule from the UK, but we are of the view that there are many provisions within the new TCI constitution when combined with the mandates of the good governance institutions stiffles the ability of any elected goverment to govern effectively.“Governance in the Turks and Caicos Islands is even further controlled by the UK via the new role of a Chief Financial Officer who has decision making and veto powers as it relates to financial management as a condition of the U.K. loan guarantee which will expire in February of this year. The financial legislative framework in the Turks and Caicos outside of the provisions for a CFO has many provisions for safeguarding and ensuring sound financial management and we as an elected government are sufficiently confident that with these systems in place there would be no need for a CFO beyond the timeframe specified.“There are many concerns related to the current Turks and Caicos Islands Constitution and these concerns were well articulated in the recent report on the TCI Constitution and the subsequent House of Assembly recommendations for constitutional amendments which were submitted to the FCO. In the new year we will be addressing these concerns and other governance issues with a bipartisan team interfacing with the FCO and this FAC so as to improve and strengthen the relationship between the TCI and the U.K. Government with respect to governance in the best interest of the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands.“Mr. Chair on behalf of the Overseas Territories I thank you for this opportunity to address this body today on these issues of governance.”The meeting with the Foreign Affairs Committee was the first of several to be held with the Overseas Territories Leaders and key UK Government Committees and officials, including the Plenary Sessions of the Joint Ministerial Council, which also began yesterday, December 1st at Lancaster House in London.Premier Ewing is scheduled to deliver another address at the JMC later today at the Plenary Session on the Challenges Facing Small Island Economies.last_img read more

Government Offers a Second Evacuation of Residents from Ragged Island

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 12, 2017 – Ragged Island – Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis Monday urged the remaining residents of Ragged Island who decided to “ride-out” Hurricane Irma in their homes to take advantage of a second opportunity to be evacuated to safety in the wake of the massive destruction inflicted by the storm.The Government of The Bahamas on Monday committed to sending a flight into the ravaged island early Tuesday morning (September 12, 2017) to evacuate the 17 residents who did not take advantage of the initial opportunity to be evacuated from the island ahead of the dangerous storm.Prime Minister Minnis later conceded to requests from a number of residents for more time to secure some of their personal property.   The flight into Ragged Island has now been rescheduled for Wednesday morning (September 13, 2017).The Category 4/5 Storm caused massive damage and destruction to the island on Friday, September 8, 2017 with early estimates suggesting that almost 90 per cent of the buildings there were either completely destroyed or were severely damaged.Downed power lines and poles snapped in half by Hurricane force winds still littered the community Monday as the Prime Minister and his delegation – which included Damage Assessment teams – toured the island to assess and evaluate the damage brought on by Hurricane Irma.Government buildings (school, police station, clinic, post office etcetera), homes and businesses were either flattened by the storm or severely damaged. Many of those that were left standing were only a shell, having had doors and concrete walls torn out; roofs torn off, and windows blown out.Communications are also out due to the extensive damage caused to the island’s infrastructure.Navigating the community on foot and in the few vehicles that survived Irma’s wrath, proved a bit tricky as assessment teams and members of the delegation had to manoeuvre around large electricity poles and wires that blocked pathways.   The stench from the rotting carcasses of dead animals was also evident.   Prime Minister Minnis told residents that he was ordering the second evacuation in their best interests.A Medical Doctor by profession, Prime Minister Minnis said the stench from the rotting carcasses of dead animals, presence of downed power lines and poles resulting in the absence of electricity, the absence of running and potable water, the loss of communications, the destruction of the clinic nullifying the availability of any potential medical treatment in the event of injury and/or sickness, and the presence of large amount of debris, could present health hazards for residents.“What we see here today is complete devastation here in Ragged Island. All roofs are destroyed; health facilities are destroyed. Today we have no water, we have no light, no medical facility and as you walk about you can smell the stench from the carcasses of dead animals,” Prime Minister Minnis told.“There are a lot of exposed nails around, if anything should happen to you there is no medical facility here – none.    (And) It’s only going to get worse over the next few days.   It’s only a matter of time before mosquitoes start.   I think it would be best for you to be evacuated to New Providence.   I know some of you want to stay but I think the health conditions are going to deteriorate, the stench is going to become worse, and you are placing your lives in jeopardy.“I have already spoken to the relevant agencies and we can have a flight fly in tomorrow, leave Nassau by 8:30am and arrive here at least by 9:30am to evacuate you.”Prime Minister Minnis said officials have taken residents’ concerns about leaving their properties unattended into consideration and have moved to address those concerns.“I know that you are concerned about leaving your properties here, but we will have the Defence Force send the relevant vessel here to provide security and to try to clean up as soon as possible.”Prime Minister Minnis said clean-up in the storm’s aftermath will take some time.“What we see here — it’s not going to clean up overnight.   It’s going to take a while.   You are Bahamians and it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that you are safe and that the quality of your lives is maintained, if not improved.   But by staying here it will deteriorate,” Prime Minister Minnis added.Story by: Matt Maura (BIS)PHOTO CAPTIONScenes of the devastation on Ragged Island caused by Hurricane Irma during the passage of the storm through the Southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands on Friday, September 8, 2017.(Photos/Yontalay Bowe, OPM Media Services) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

250 more young persons to be recruited under JNSC

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, September 29, 2017 – Kingston – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says that come November, an additional 250 young people will be recruited by the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) under the Jamaica National Service Corps (JNSC).   He said the new recruits will represent the second cohort drafted under the JNSC, which is the JDF’s new intake mechanism, following an initial 234 young people who graduated on September 23 following 13 weeks of training.The Prime Minister advised that unlike the first cohort, which had no females, “we certainly have women in the next intake”.   He was providing an update on the JNSC in a statement delivered during Tuesday’s (September 26) sitting of the House of Representatives.Mr. Holness said the 13-week training exercise represented the first of five phases comprising a year-long programme for the initial recruits.   He pointed out that areas covered in the curriculum under phase one included discipline, military service knowledge, barracks room procedures, physical fitness and conditioning, foot and arms drills, basic field craft/adventure training, map reading, basic first aid, and basic signals.The Prime Minister reiterated that the JNSC, established following an amendment to the Defence Act, which he tabled in Parliament in March, is a critical component of the JDF’s employment and engagement strategy.   Additionally, he said it is integral to the Government’s Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) initiative, “which is an apt acronym for Help Our People Excel”.Mr. Holness noted that the newly minted soldiers will embody the JNSC’s underpinning principle to Learn, Earn, Give (back) and Save (LEGS).   He said they would do so by applying the JDF’s core values of commitment, courage, honour, integrity, loyalty and discipline.“In order to have a safe, secure and progressive nation, we must uphold these values and make them a way of life by spreading them throughout Jamaica.   This augurs well for Jamaica’s development and engagement of its young people, particularly our unattached youth,” he added.The Jamaica National Service Corps will facilitate an intake of 1,000 persons to the JDF annually, representing an increase of more than 700 individuals, for 12 months of training in military, vocational and broader life skills.These skills will equip them for either an extended career in the JDF or engagement in other professional areas of interest.Release: JISPhoto credit: JDF Related Items:last_img read more

Often students were told to declare a disability that would require they be given extra time, often a second day, to complete the exams.— Bribing college coaches or athletic administrators to make it appear the students were athletes being recruited to the school, including creating fake athletic credentials.— Having someone take classes in the place of a student and using those grades on applications.Between 2011-2018 prosecutors allege parents paid the consultant $25 million to bribe coaches and college administrators to designate their children as student athletes or member of other groups given favored admission status. Prosecutors say payments were often disguised as charitable donations that were then funneled to the coaches and administrators.Prosecutors say the consultant represented to parents that the scheme had worked successfully more than 800 times.Attorney Gretchen Von Helms joined KUSI News to discuss the latest college admission scandal.

The more than 700 fraudulent claims in the Yuma Sector came as 24,200 migrant family members were apprehended at the border near Yuma from October to March, according to Border Patrol statistics. Borderwide, federal officials said they had seen about 3,100 fraudulent family claims since April 2018, alongside about 260,000 migrant family members.”The Tucson.com report goes on to describe some of the alleged family fraud cases.
