The signing of Camavinga is independent from that of Pogba

first_imgCamavinga is the player that Zidane has set his eyes on as a bet for the future for Real Madrid. With this intention of doubling the position of Casemiro that the coach has, to provide the staff with more muscle in the midfield, the Rennes midfielder meets all the requirements that are being asked now. He is young, will have a relatively reasonable price and will be able to start in Madrid fulfilling a role as Casemiro’s own substitute. Ideal … But independent Pogba’s hiring, vital for the French coach. But this newspaper has been counting it. Zidane continues to keep eyebrowing the signing of Pogba to shore up his project. It seems that the appropriate conditions exist this summer, but it would be the third attempt. In the previous two, in 2016 and 2019, there was no luck. It is a difficult operation. It is one of the flagship players of the world champion team and a club, Manchester, which is in the top-3 of income.Nick Potts – PA Images & nbsp; (PA Images via Getty Images) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Nick Potts – PA Images (PA Images via Getty Images) Zidane tries to do with this player a kind of operation similar to that of Varane, the one he brought to Madrid, when he was Florentino’s director, for ten million euros from Lens. At the time, Varane was, like Camavinga now, 17 years old. What makes the two situations very different is that Varane came at a bargain price (or not so much, because it was ten million for a stranger) and that, on the contrary, for Camavinga there is an authentic auction and there is talk of an amount close to 50 million. This is what the market indicated before the crisis. For example, Madrid paid 45 million for Vinicius, 40 for Rodrygo and 30 for Rainier.ALBERTO LINGRIA & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>ALBERTO LINGRIA (REUTERS) Pogba ends his contract in 2021 and United has the possibility of extending it one more unilaterally. Either way, it’s trying to renew you. According to what AS has learned, the media would prioritize an offer from Madrid that can be reached by Juve or a renewal with United, which last summer he valued the player at 180 million pounds (almost 200 euros) and that he can not ask for more than a hundred. Camavinga’s representative is a novelty for Real Madrid, that he has not been able to close any operation with him before. It is Moussad Sissoko, who also leads Dembelé’s career. Camavinga recently renewed with Rennes, but did so only until 2022. He has not much contract left, he is at the right time to leave. After the renovation, he went on to collect two million gross.last_img read more

Start with very fit Laws of the Code

first_img OLD RIVAL ZEPHYR enjoys a 5.0kg swing with old rival LITTLE BIG HORN and even with in-form champion jockey Omar Walker now taking the ride aboard the latter, the Wayne Parchment-rained ZEPHYR is given the edge in a nine-strong field. BIG BLACK NATION, the mount of 3.0kg claiming apprentice Anthony Thomas, has not been running badly for trainer Fitzroy Glipsie this season and could provide the answer to the knotty looking fourth race over a mile in which 13 have been declared. Horses such as BOUNCE, WARTIME, PIANO MAN, HEY CHAMP, KAMALI STAR and JON MARSHALL will all have their supporters in a race of this nature, but BIG BLACK NATION could prove best of all from the convenient mark of 53.0kg. The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by the well- forward firrst time runner TIZ A VIBE (working well for trainer Anthony Nunes, Steadman up) and down in class RALLY BABY under champion apprentice Bebeto Harvey for trainer Richard Azan in the sixth race over the straight. With fancied horses such as SEEKING MY DREAM, CRAFTY STAR and smart newcomer TWILIGHT DREAMS dominating last Saturday’s meet at Caymanas Park, both the Pick-9 and Super-6s start anew on tomorrow’s 11-race programme with guaranteed minimums of $1 million and $750,000, respectively. On a day when the three-old fillies and colts will undergo their final Guineas prep races in the Thornbird Stakes and Prince Consort Stakes over 1400 metres, the Pick-9 will embrace races three to 11, the first Super-6 from race one to six, the twilight Super-6 from race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6 which commences with a 3-y-o maiden race over 1200 metres to be contested by 11 starters, including the likely favourite, LAWS OF THE CODE, who has been narrowly beaten in her last two races. Owned and trained by Carl Anderson who is enjoying tremendous form this season, LAWS OF THE CODE obviously has less to do in present company judging from her close second to ROGAMMA on March 4 and also to LIGHTNING LILY behind a fast time (1:06.4) over 1100 metres on February 25. Coming back with a mere 51.0kg by virtue of the apprentice Javaneil Patterson 2.0kg claim, should lead home RAKSHA with former champion Wesley Henry aboard. Twelve maiden five-year-olds have been declared for the second race over 1300 metres and while at first glance it has a difficult look about it, on closer examination the winner should come from a trio comprising MR COOKIE (Henry up), BRAVE HEART (Linton Steadman) and MOUNT ZION KING (Odean Edwards). All three figured prominently last time out, MOUNT ZION KING failing by 3/4 lengths to beat WISE JOHNNY over the straight on March 1. BRAVE HEART, on the other hand, beat all barring KHOSHAKEL over 1100 metres on February 11, while MR COOKIE ran well against four-year-olds (behind SMASH AMUSEMENT) over 1400 metres on February 13 and could well start favourite given Henry’s presence. Preference is for the Colin Ferguson-trained MOUNT ZION KING, but only just from MR. COOKIE from the Terence McWhinney stable. They all have the consistent ZEPHYR, with competent apprentice Jerome Innis aboard, to beat in the third race over the straight. The four-year-old chestnut filly was 21/4 lengths third to LORD EQUUS and LITTLE BIG HORN over 1300 metres recently and prior to that went down fighting by half a length to LOTTERY TICKET and again to LIKE A LADY in fast run 1100-metre races.

Pulse Beat: 5 LIB Tracks on the Minds of the Masses

first_imgLiberian artists today, it seems, are working tirelessly to win the hearts and minds of the masses. And as they make serious gains, how that translates into income to support their work remains the age-old challenge. In the mean time, this is a game of sheer passion, and only those with grit will survive. That being said, here are five LIB tracks that have been on the hearts and minds of Liberians for the past three weeks and counting. These are not necessarily in any rank or apparent order, just a measure of how people feel about issues here and there.“They Lied To Us” by Takun J“Justice” by Takun J ft Lady Mouthphy“Spoil You With Love” by Joseph Dean ft K-zee and Marvalous MC“Kemah” by DenG“In Your Area” – Soul FreshLet’s first begin with the song, “They Lied To Us”, by Takun J. Since its release the song, which reflects people’s frustration with the powers that be, as access to opportunities and economic conditions continue to decline for many. The lyrics to this song are published in the Observer Poetry section.Despite growing popularity of the song, Takun J now sees himself as being frowned upon by the authorities. In 2007 the Hip Co rapper was beaten for his hit single “Policeman” and twice held behind bars. He has since also claimed of frequent harassments by Liberian security personnel since releasing the song They Lie To Us.The next song, “Justice”, also by Takun J, reflects an ordeal with lawmaker Edwin Snowe in 2014, where a fender-bender between the two turned into a physical assault allegedly perpetrated by the lawmaker. Takun J says he wrote the song because all legal means pursued for redress failed, as many were afraid to confront the lawmaker. A source close to the musician has said he intends to launch by year-end a grand concert, the planning of which is already in the works.“In Your Area”, by musical duo Soul Fresh, them on a path to being well the leading musical group in the country. The song reflects the very strides that musicians are making to stay relevant, hip and ahead of the game in Liberia’s struggling music industry. On a much lighter note, Joseph Dean is winning happy hearts with his hit Gbema-track, “Spoil You With Love”. With more than 500 viewers on YouTube, the song has a contagious colloquial style that has set Dean this week at a tier higher than the rest combined.But since releasing “They Vex”, DenG remains a hard one to contend with, given the release of another song, “Kemah” (I could do anything for your love… You on my mind whole day…).

Govt mulls external legal services

first_imgConstitutional Challenge…AG’s capacity to defend State cases questionedThe Guyana Government is yet to make a decision as to whether it would retain external legal services to represent its appeal in the constitutional challenge case that is currently before the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), because there continues to be much criticism over the performance of the Attorney General.Attorney General Basil WilliamsSpeaking with reporters on Wednesday, Attorney General Basil Williams explained that since Government has already retained two Queen’s Counsels from Barbados to represent its case in the challenge of the appointment of Justice James Patterson as Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), it is possible that the services of the two legal practitioners may be extended to the constitutional challenge case – which, among other things, questions the term limit imposed on Guyanese presidents.“Well, as you know, I have two Barbadian QCs, and it’s quite possible that they could in fact (be retained)…they could be advisory, or they could also appear in the case. That’s the situation,” he stated.Asserting that no decision has as yet been taken, Williams added, “We have a lot of time. There hasn’t been a fixed date, there’s a tentative date.”This suggestion that external legal services may be used to represent Guyana has against raised questions about the capacity of the AG’s Chambers to represent state cases.One senior member of the judiciary, commenting on the possibility of the state using foreign counsels, said it is unfortunate that the Government would contemplate such a move when there are competent local lawyers that the Government can hire.The CCJ is expected to hold a case management conference on February 6, 2018, during which the dates will be set to hear the case, after the court would have consulted with attorneys on both sides in order to determine a date.Hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00h in the Trinidad-based court, and will be done via audio-visual recording, according to information posted on the CCJ website.The decision to refer the case to the CCJ was presided over by acting Chancellor Yonette Cummings-Edwards, Appellate Judge Dawn Gregory, and High Court Judge Rishi Persaud.Back in 2014, private citizen Cedric Richardson had filed the challenge, arguing that Act 17 of 2001, which was passed by a two-thirds majority of the National Assembly, unconstitutionally curtailed and restricted his sovereign and democratic right and freedom as a qualified elector to elect a former President as the Executive President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. Contending that the limit was unconstitutional and illegal, Richardson also wanted the court to determine whether the amendment with a referendum should not have been held, instead of the two-thirds majority in the National Assembly having the power to decide to limit the number of terms.The other restrictions were: to also declare unqualified to run for the presidency citizens of Guyana not resident in Guyana on Nomination Day; citizens of Guyana resident in Guyana on Nomination Day but who have not been continuously resident in Guyana for seven years prior to that date; and citizens of Guyana by registration.After several months in the court, former Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang ruled in favour of Richardson’s argument, saying that the term limit on presidents is unconstitutional without the approval of the people through a referendum.However, the decision did not sit well with Attorney General Basil Williams and former Speaker of the National Assembly Raphael Trotman, both of whom were named respondents in the court action. They asked that the ruling be “wholly set aside”; but then Chancellor of the Judiciary (ag), Justice Carl Singh, also upheld the High Court’s decision, arguing in the Appeal Court ruling that a decision on the term-limit rested with the people via a referendum, and not the National Assembly. He had sought to impress the point that people should choose whom they “please to govern them,” and noted that this is essential to all other rights.During the February 2017 decision, Justice Singh was supported by Justice of Appeal BS Roy in upholding Justice Chang’s decision. Current Chief Justice (ag) Yonette Cummings-Edwards, who also sat on the panel, had given a dissenting judgement.Meanwhile, this move by Government to retain external legal services for yet another case comes on the heels of widespread criticisms of the performance of AG Williams. Since its assumption to office, Government, represented by the AG, has lost several cases at the level of the CCJ, and in the local courts to large companies, private citizens, and even Opposition members.At a press conference last week, Williams had brushed aside criticisms of his Chamber’s underperformance after several judgments were passed against them, leaving Government to pay out millions.It was reported that in 2017, some $100 million was included in the Legal Affairs Ministry’s Budget for the retention of six attorneys by the Government to prosecute a number of high profile cases.Government recently retained the services of Barbadian Queen’s Counsels Ralph Thorn and Hal Gallop in the ongoing GECOM case. In defending the decision, the AG pointed out that their appointments would serve to enrich the jurisprudence in the region.last_img read more

first_img‘The Buncrana Banger’ John Hutchinson will again face Belfast’s Gerard ‘Boom Boom’ Healy in a rerun of their thrilling encounter last year at the Odyssey Arena.This time the pair meet in Healy’s ‘backyard’ at the Devenish Complex, Belfast on Saturday, April 6th and Hutchinson is eager to put an end of online feud that erupted after their first meeting, with both sets of fans arguing that ‘their man’ was the rightful victor. Hutchinson’s first year in the pro ranks has got off to a flying start and the 26-year-old Donegal fighter’s confidence was buoyed further after earning the first knockout win of his career when he flattened Lithuanian tough-nut Mantas Bakstinas inside a single round at Birmingham’s HMV Institute in February which earned rave reviews from in the British boxing press.That win brought the young prospect’s perfect record to three victories from three fights, but there have been lingering demands from Healy’s Gleann Gym camp for a rematch with the West Belfast slugger because they felt they were hard done-by on the judge’s scorecard after their original encounter on Heavyweight Tyson Fury’s bill in December.“We were planning on fighting a routine four round fight on the same bill versus a lesser opponent than Healy just to keep John ticking over for a bigger fight later on in the year, but then I got a call from Chris Graham at Emerald Promotions asking if we would grant Healy a rematch instead, this time over six rounds.,” explained manager Leonard Gunning.“It’s a really tough fight, the first encounter was a bruising battle that had the fans on the edge of their seats so I needed some time to think about if we had enough time to prepare correctly for a fight of this nature. I spoke to Hutchy’s experienced trainer John Breen and we agreed that we should roll the dice and take the fight. It’s an opportunity for John to show just how much he has improved, even over the last six months, so I just hope his supporters in Donegal come and back him because he will need their encouragement as he travels to Healy’s home turf in Belfast. Hutchinson has little doubt he was well worth the win in their initial battle and is confident that not only will there be a repeat of the original result but that the manner of the victory will more decisive in the long awaited rematch.“Gerard put in a great performance in the first fight and it was a hard hard nights work for us both. But I was the busier boxer and I was beating him to the punch every time. I got drawn into a scrap that night and let the occasion and my emotions of fighting in a big arena like that get to me,” said Hutchinson.“It was a true old fashioned toe-to-toe fight and all-action, but I enjoyed it, I enjoy those types of fights, probably more than I should and so do the fans but I enjoyed the result even more. The scorecards gave it to me by a very wide margin, but that doesn’t tell the full tale of the fight.“Gerard and I are friends outside of the ring, he is a genuine warrior and that increases my respect for him. Some of his team weren’t happy with the result and thought he won it, and some of his fans pretty vocal in expressing their thoughts on the result as well, it even turned into a bit of a slanging match on the internet over it. It just shows how passionate his fans are and it’s great to have support like that. They have been screaming for a rematch since the last fight and if they want it that bad then I am happy to give them what they want but the result will still be the same,” explained the former Illies Golden Gloves slugger.The ‘Emerald Gems’ bill features a host of host of Ireland’s top up and coming prospects including Irish champion Anthony Cacace and unbeaten prospects like Philip Sutcliffe Jnr, Ray Ginley, Dee Walsh and Tyrone McKenna with the likes of Eddie Nesbitt and Joe Hillerby adding more quality to the show.Tickets for John’s bout at the Devenish Complex, North Finaghy Road, Belfast on Saturday, April 6th are £30 and available in Derry from the Love Hot Yoga Studio in Springtown Industrial Estate or in Buncrana at O’Flaherty’s Bar.

first_imgGreen Party candidate for Midlands – North West, Mark Dearey, has criticised the remarks made by MEP Pat The Cope Gallagher in regard to the Government’s failure to apply for funding from the European Union Solidarity Fund for storm damage.Mr Gallagher and his colleagues in Fianna Fail all voted to cut the EUSF by 50%, despite knowing that as a peripheral Atlantic country, Ireland is highly vulnerable to a changing climate and could require funding from this source, said Dearey Commenting today, Mark Dearey said, “This really is a remarkable statement by Mr Gallagher. How he can rail against the Government for not applying for EUSF funding, when he voted in favour of cutting that funding and making it harder for Ireland to access it, is frankly beyond belief. “Pat knew full well when he cast his vote just three months ago that his actions would make it harder for rural communities to access vital funding from the EU in times of hardship, and yet he’s clearly hoping no one notices.“Let me be absolutely clear about two facts: Firstly, there was no pressure on the EU to cut the budget, and in particular the EUSF budget. There was no insistence from bond markets for a cut.“This was a nakedly political action by Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and Labour to appease David Cameron, as he attempted to solidify his right-wing against attacks from UKIP extremists. Secondly, not only did the Greens in Europe oppose these cuts, I would not, and if elected will not, vote to cut the budget for programs which provide funds for climate related clean up and reconstruction, and investment in climate mitigation strategies.“The EU budget is up for review in 2016, and if elected, I will join my Green colleagues in voting to restore funding to the EUSF, taking account of the extremes in weather we are clearly facing into. “Mr Gallagher needs to immediately come out and admit his mistake. He voted to cut money which could now be rebuilding our towns and cities across the country, and he did so fully aware that Ireland is ill-prepared to handle our increasingly wet and stormy climate. Clearly Fianna Fail have still not learnt that duplicitous politics is no longer acceptable and voters won’t be taken in by it.”Irish MEPs who voted to cut the EUSF: Liam Aylward; Nessa Childers; Emer Costello; Brian Crowley; Pat the cope Gallagher; Marian Harkin; Jim Higgins; Sean Kelly; Mairead McGuinness; Gay Mitchell; Phil Prendergast. PAT THE COPE GALLAGHER VOTED TO CUT EMERGENCY FUNDS – GREEN PARTY was last modified: February 18th, 2014 by John2Share 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:fianna failMark DeareyPat the Cope Gallagher MePlast_img read more

Property-tax payment is going high-tech

In hopes of reducing the number of late payments each year, Los Angeles County has launched a service allowing residents to pay property-tax bills online by electronic check. Called Vcheck, property owners can make payments by going to or Property taxes also may be paid by check or credit card. Unlike with credit card payments, Vcheck does not charge an additional fee. The service comes as county Treasurer and Tax Collector Mark Saladino begins sending out 2.3 million annual property tax bills. Saladino said a pilot program with Vcheck began July 18 for taxpayers who needed to pay supplemental tax bills. As of Oct. 4, nearly 200 payments have been processed online for 249 parcels, for a total of about $245,000. To pay online, taxpayers provide an e-mail address and fill out an electronic check online with information that appears on their written checks. A confirmation page can be printed, and payers receive a confirmation e-mail. The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office prints and processes the checks just as mailed checks are processed. Saladino said fraud-prevention measures include a server in the county’s data center that is protected by firewalls and a requirement for taxpayers to enter a personal identification number (PIN) that appears on the tax bill. Saladino said he hopes the new system will reduce some of the 250,000 late payments received annually.last_img read more
