Zidane warns Mariano and Brahim: “They will play … when you can”

first_imgZidane sent a buried message to Mariano and Brahim in the press conference prior to the meeting between Real Madrid and Valladolid. A few days after the close of the market, the white coach was asked if he intends to have a conversation with both players to let them see that, given the lack of opportunities, they should do as Odriozola, who has just gone to Bayern Munich. Zidane repeated, as he has been doing, that everyone knows their situation and that if they stay they will play … when there is opportunity. “Everyone has their situation, I talk to the players from time to time. Everyone knows their situation, then the player has to choose and do. I am not here to say what they have to do. If I do, I speak directly with the player. They are here and I will count on them. I will count on them… when I can ”Zidane answered the question about both players. The two have been approached by the club to study being released, but both refuse. Mariano’s case is complicated: he has a high salary (almost five million euros net per season) and he doesn’t find who takes care of those emoluments, besides being a Champions or Europa League team, where he can have a good showcase. Brahim would have it much easier, he has many suitors (the Getafe said it publicly), but he refuses to leave Madrid; He is convinced that he can change Zidane’s opinion with opportunities such as the Copa del Rey, where he left and not only scored one goal, but also caused another.center_img That “when you can” is palmar, considering what both players have participated so far. They are, in fact, the two players who have had less minutes of the squad, except for Asensio, injured since July. Mariano has played 44 minutes in two games at the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabiaí, because Benzema was injured and had no Zidane more strikers. Y Brahim has counted something else, but little: 77 minutes in five games, scoring a goal in Salamanca last Wednesday. last_img read more

Kiskatinaw audit gives passing grade

first_imgSoil conservation and water quality protections in the Kiskatinaw River watershed have been met.That’s the message from an audit by the independent Forest Practices Board which reviewed forestry, oil and gas, and range operations on Crown land in the area. The audit reviewed five corporations for their practices in the area. Louisiana-Pacific Canada Ltd. for its forestry practices, Apache Canada, Shell Canada and Encana Corporation for their oil and gas practices, along with the Bear Mountain Grazing Association for their range practices. The audit also looked at three individuals who have range tenures.- Advertisement -Although the audit found that all operators were within legal requirements for the items reviewed, the Board was unable to examine water usage by the various companies because that is regulated under the provincial Water Act.One item the Board did find that could be improved was the fact that cattle congregated in certain areas along streams causing some disturbances.Advertisement The Kiskatinaw River is important to the South Peace region since the City of Dawson Creek obtains its drinking water from the river.last_img read more

New Opportunity Development Agreement signed between industry and First Nations

first_imgThe PDP also plans to put in place community engagement initiatives such as a project website, community meetings and regular project updates.Some of the front-runners in the race to develop Canada’s LNG industry include Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron Corp, who are concurrently developing rival projects in other parts of the world. Steelhead LNG applied to the National Energy Board for a license to export up to 30,000,000 tonnes of LNG per year for 25 years, creating hundreds of direct construction jobs and additional full-time operational jobs.The National Energy Board has already approved export licenses for nine projects in British Columbia, and now has five more under review.The site will be split into 4 different LNG production facilities, each producing 6 mtpa (million tonnes per annum).- Advertisement -The Nations Project Development Panel (PDP) has also been developed between the company and First Nations, with the goal to increase First Nations input and direction in the LNG project.   The joint panel also ensures “several comprehensive regulatory, environmental and technical assessments,” and is also said to “only proceed after extensive consultation with Huu-ay-aht citizens, including a vote on a possible land lease to project” during an assembly in November 2014.“We recognize that between now and the time the first shipment of LNG might leave our proposed facility, thousands of decisions will have to be made and we have to get every one of them right,” CEO of Steelhead LNG, Nigel Kuzemko said. “…The decisions we make together will be measured against our joint responsibility to ensure that lands on which we hope to operate are safeguarded for generations to come.”Advertisementlast_img read more

DONEGAL SFC QUARTER-FINAL PREVIEW: BITTER RIVALS ARDARA AND NAOMH CONAILL ALL SET FOR CRUCIAL CLASH

first_imgPaddy McGrath will be a key man for Ardara in their Donegal SFC quarter-final against Naomh Conaill.In 2009, old foes Naomh Conaill and Ardara faced each other in the Donegal SFC quarter-final, it was expected that Glenties would dispose of their rivals at ease, but that’s not how it panned out.Ardara took Naomh Conaill to the pin of their collar and forced the game into a replay.In the subsequent replay, after sixty minutes the two sides still couldn’t be separated so the game was brought into extra-time. Naomh Conaill eventually won through in the end in what was a truly epic two-game club championship series.Five years have passed since that encounter, and since then Naomh Conaill have won a Donegal SFC, they defeated Killybegs in 2010, and also reached the Ulster Final that season.Naomh Conaill under the stewardship of Paddy Campbell have ambitions of taking the Dr Maguire cup back to Glenties.With Anthony Thompson, Dermot Molloy and Dara Gallagher at their disposal they have the firepower to do so. Ardara were unlucky not to reach the Donegal SFC final last year, after being narrowly defeated by one point by eventual champions Glenswilly.They’ll be hoping they can go one better this year, and would love to send their local rivals tumbling out of the championship and book a semi-final spot.They’ve enjoyed a consistent season, they’re a consistent team, and have a great championship pedigree.Naomh Conaill are expected to beat Ardara on Saturday, but the Ardara men will have something to say about that.It wouldn’t be surprising of this game needed another replay to decide the winner. The game is at Tir Chonaill Park, Donegal Town, with throw-in at 4pm.It’s going to be close and with a lot at stake, it’s hard to pick a winner.Naomh Conaill have greater experience in big matches, so they might just shade it.VERDICT – NAOMH CONAILL DONEGAL SFC QUARTER-FINAL PREVIEW: BITTER RIVALS ARDARA AND NAOMH CONAILL ALL SET FOR CRUCIAL CLASH was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ArdaraDonegal SFCDonegal SFC PreviewGAANaomh ConaillnewsSportlast_img read more

GOVERNMENT HAS OTHER CHOICES, CLAIMS TD AFTER TROIKA MEETING

first_imgSinn Féin’s Deputy Pearse Doherty, vice president Mary Lou McDonald, social protection spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh and West Tyrone MP Pat Doherty met with the Troika review group in Dublin this morning.Speaking afterwards Sinn Féin finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty said: “This is the third meeting Sinn Féin has had with the Troika. At each meeting we have outlined our view that their policies of austerity are not working. They are blocking a return to growth and are hurting low and middle income families.“Our meeting with the Troika was frank and constructive. However it is clear that they are more focused on meeting deficit reduction targets than on the need for investment in jobs and growth. “We discussed the impact of austerity on families, the need to invest in job creation, the outworking of last Friday’s European Council meeting, proposed changes to social welfare schemes including Community Employment, Child Benefit and the household benefits package, the Croke Park agreement and the Irish government’s funding of the A5 Dublin to Derry motorway.“The Troika said that the government must meet its deficit reduction targets. However they made it very clear that the way in which these targets are met is a matter for the government.“On issues such as tax reform, public spending and social welfare payments the government has significant scope and choice on what policies it pursues.“Contrary to what government ministers are telling us, it is the government who are forcing the burden of adjustment on low and middle income families rather than on the very wealthy in our society.” GOVERNMENT HAS OTHER CHOICES, CLAIMS TD AFTER TROIKA MEETING was last modified: July 4th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Now companies that do just that are being recognised for their innovation and creativity.Proudly South African, a campaign promoting South African products, is enthusiastic about the entrants to its Homegrown Awards, describing them as “vibrant, creative, energetic and empowering”.The Homegrown Awards showcase the diverse spectrum of South African companies, large and small, whose dynamism and innovation display a positive contribution to sustainable growth in the country.Bridging the Divide, one of the 10 categories in the competition, targets companies that have made meaningful contributions to narrowing the divide between the formal and informal economies.These include small rural-based projects, sports organisations, conservation efforts, learning academies, design studios and food companies.MonkeybizOne of the companies taking up the challenge of bridging South Africa’s divide is Monkeybiz, a non-profit beadwork initiative that has seen the sustainable upliftment and empowerment of more than 350 women from informal settlements around Cape Town.Each piece of beadwork represents job creation, restored self-worth and a step-up for the local economy.The success of Monkeybiz has seen the publishing of a visual educational book, “Positively HIV”, in English and Xhosa, exposing some of the myths surrounding HIV/Aids and highlighting human rights awareness in an artistic, entertaining and non-confrontational way.The proceeds from the book, which is illustrated with Monkeybiz beadwork, led to the opening of a Wellness Centre and Aids Support Group for the artists and members of their communities.Port Elizabeth Early Learning CentreAnother contender for the award is The Port Elizabeth Early Learning Centre (PEELC), a non-profit educational institution that provides quality outcomes-based programmes to enable early childhood development (ECD) practitioners to achieve the full ECD qualification and to follow a relevant career path.The PEELC forms an important link between formal and informal education in disadvantaged communities around Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage and surrounding rural districts.Despite unemployment in this region being the second-highest in the country, ECD centres are mushrooming in the province, creating job opportunities for young women who would normally have been unemployed.The Rain FactoryThe Rain Factory captures the essence of homegrown innovation, believing that every citizen of South Africa has a responsibility to help create jobs, fight crime and poverty, and share skills, ideas and opportunities.Working out of an old railway goods shed in rural Ladybrand in the Free State, the Rain Factory manufactures a range of olive oil and glycerine soaps, complimentary bath products, decorative gift boxes, candles, cane and metal furniture, hand crocheted and stitched children’s toys and decor accessories, rag rugs, tin garden accessories, wooden products and woven grass items.The products have been successfully marketed at trade shows in New York, San Francisco, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Dubai and Wales.Pick ‘n Pay employment equity projectsSupermarket giant Pick ‘n Pay has always been a strong Proudly South African supporter, embracing upliftment, equal employment opportunity and human development as a core focus of its operations.The company has initiated two internal employment equity projects – the Franchise Training Centre and the Support Bakery BEE Project, each aimed at encouraging growth and BEE opportunities for previously disadvantaged people.The Franchise Training Centre equips individuals to set up their own Pick ‘n Pay Family store. Through Wits Technikon, candidates study for their higher certificate in retail management, followed by an on-the-job programme that provides practical foundation for store management.Pick ‘n Pay’s Support Bakery BEE Project is an innovative upliftment initiative that provides training and employment for 75 people who were previously cleaning personnel.The highly motivated Support Bakery team supplies all Pick ‘n Pay’s in-store bakeries with freshly baked products, earning a percentage of their daily production costs.Global Strake SecurityGlobal Strake Security is a Proudly South African company that combats crime and unemployment through the provision of security services in the Magalakwena municipal district of Limpopo province.Working closely with the police, the community policing forum and the local municipality, the company employs members of the community and provides security services to more than 80 clients.Proudly South African said the entrants demonstrated the “high calibre of organisations striving to contribute to South Africa’s sustainable development”.Winners of the Homegrown Awards will be announced at an event to be held in Johannesburg towards the end of January 2005.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more
