Andoni Iraola: “It is clear that this tie is alive”

first_imgMirandés coach Andoni Iraola was more than happy despite the loss because the 2-1 result against Real Sociedad makes it clear that “the tie is alive”.“In the end we are at a disadvantage in the tie but satisfied with how it has been. We played a very good game and we were very Mirandés, faithful to what has brought us here,” said the coach of the Burgos team. Iraola saw two different parts, the first marked by the early goal of the Real, somewhat that “he could decentralize the team but the players continued to believe until the end” and a second with his dominating team.“We have stolen a lot of ball in the opposite field, in the second part they played more direct from the start, their players are very dangerous but we have handled it relatively well,” said Iraola.The former Athletic player regretted not having made the goal of the tie in this half and complained that in the second leg his rival “has two more days off, it was preferable to have some respite but the team has gotten into this mess and now we have to keep going. “He did not want to deepen some decisions of Gil Manzano, such as the penalty in favor of the Real or a possible card to Monreal, which would have been the second, and that the Extremaduran collegiate did not show.“We have not had luck in the referee’s decisions and those details that do not depend on you at least do not have to go against you,” Iraola said resignedly.last_img read more

“Flawed Amendment to Flawed Act” – PSC

first_imgGovt roasted on Broadcasting BillThe Private Sector Commission (PSC) said it has noted with increasing concern, the passing last Friday, August 4, 2017, of the Broadcast (Amendment) Bill 2017, now before the President for his ascent.The Commission, in a statement on Wednesday night, said it preferred to refrain from commenting on this Bill, which is clearly contentious, until it had been fully debated in the National Assembly.“The Bill will now amend the Broadcast Bill 2011 which itself, though it did not invite much public attention at its passing, is, in the opinion of the Commission, far from adequate in a number of critical aspects in delivering a Broadcasting Authority and Law meeting certain fundamental provisions for administering and regulating broadcasting in our country,” the PSC stated.It noted that the 2011 Bill, for instance, establishes a Broadcasting Authority, entirely composed of persons appointed solely by the President, completely compromising the independence of the Authority.“The precedent has long been set in the United Kingdom, Canada and the majority of Commonwealth Countries and in the USA, to ensure that, even though broadcasting authorities are appointed by the Government, in practice there is extensive and widespread consultation with the political Opposition and civil society as to their composition,” the PSC contended.“The Commission, in fact, holds the view that this Government has missed a golden opportunity to have revisited and revised the 2011 Broadcasting Bill which did not, at the time of its passing, receive full and adequate consultation with licensed broadcast owners and the general public. Instead, the Government has used its majority in Parliament to enforce amendments of a bad bill which bring into question the Government’s intention with regard to the Amendment’s real purpose and the Government’s commitment to freedom of expression in the broadcast media,” the PSC added.The Bill to amend the Broadcast Bill 2011, offensively, provides for the cancellation of all current broadcasting licences in place immediately before the commencement of the Act, forcing these licensees out of business with no option but to reapply for a licence in a totally unreasonable period of time.The PSC said it wishes to point out that these licences were issued under the law, however bad the law, to broadcasters who have made considerable investment and accepted in good faith that they will not be arbitrarily cancelled without cause.“In fact, the Amendment to the Broadcast Bill has been introduced by the Government without any serious prior consultation with Broadcast Licensees, never mind public hearings. The Commission finds this to be totally unacceptable and a complete departure from internationally accepted norm and practice.”The Amendment of the Broadcast Bill also, again without any consultation, provides for the Broadcasting Authority to enforce the provision of broadcasting time on licensees of a minimum of one hour per day at times which include prime time commercial broadcasts for the purpose of “public service programmes”, whatever that may be, entirely at the discretion of the Prime Minister who, in any event, has ultimate direction over broadcasting content under the 2011 Bill.The Commission, while acknowledging that there is legislative precedent for Government to place public service programmes on private commercial broadcast stations, said the nature and content of this material is usually very carefully defined in broadcast regulations to ensure against programmes involving political and/or controversial material intended specifically to serve the interest of any political party outside of an election period.The Private Sector Commission urges the President to send the Bill amending the Broadcast Act back to Parliament for extensive public consultation with the Broadcasting Licensees, and, indeed, the general public. The Commission further encourages the President to consider amendment and revision of the 2011 Broadcasting Act to reflect a broadcasting policy and philosophy for using the airwaves which will serve the public interest and convenience subject to the constitutional guarantees of free speech and expression.last_img read more

Benzema’s friends suspected of attempted kidnapping

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid’s French forward Karim Benzema warms up before the Spanish league football match against Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid May 12, 2018 © AFP/File / Benjamin CREMELPARIS, France, Oct 19 – Associates of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema are suspected of involvement in an attempted kidnapping with the aim of recuperating money owed to the star player, French news site Mediapart reported on Thursday.A dispute, centred on just Sh5.8mn (50,000 euros) in cash, is believed to be the cause of the failed attempt, according to the report. Lawyers for former French international Benzema, however, described the claims as “grotesque”.Leo D., who described himself as an agent of the Real Madrid player, filed a lawsuit Monday, October 8, claiming he had been the victim of an attempted kidnapping.The 33-year-old accused close friends of Benzema of trying to grab him in Paris on Sunday, October 7, after the French Ligue 1 game between PSG and Lyon, hoping to persuade him to transfer the cash.Smaine T., a childhood friend of Benzema, and the Real Madrid player’s driver, allegedly ordered Leo D. to get into a black van where he said he believed he saw “the silhouette of Karim Benzema” in the back of the vehicle.Mediapart said the dispute is over Sh5.8mn (50,000 euros) which was agreed to be paid to Benzema by a sponsor for a trip to Morocco in the summer.Benzema’s entourage believe Leo D. pocketed the money himself.Sylvain Cormier, the lawyer of Benzema, insisted Thursday that Leo D. “has never been the agent of Karim Benzema. This is where the problem originates — he is perhaps disappointed”.Cormier denounced the accusations as a means to make headlines.“This whole thing has been agitated by this man who tries very clumsily to hide his own problems.“This man accuses a relative of Karim Benzema of taking his arm, we also know that Karim Benzema was not present at the scene — suspicion of attempted kidnapping is perfectly grotesque,” said Cormier.However, Joseph Cohen-Sabban, the lawyer for Leo D., retorted that “if Karim Benzema was to take a complaint of libel to the courts, he would be in trouble.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has said that he believes there’s a possibility that his emergency motion which calls for the council not to collect information from utility companies in order to pursue those who haven’t paid the household  charge will be passed.Cllr Murray said that it will depend on whether or not he can get support from Fianna Fáil.Speaking in advance of Tuesday’s meeting, Cllr Murray said: “Unfortunately at the last sitting of Donegal County Council, Fine Gael were facilitated by their Mayor to filibuster throughout the meeting in order to block my motion from being discussed. “While their childish and undemocratic stunt succeeded in blocking a debate on the motion, they did not prevent me from reading it out. Therefore the motion stands and will be discussed on Tuesday.“Two independent councillors have already confirmed that they will support me. With the support of Fianna Fáil the motion will succeed.“The vast majority of people in Donegal have not paid the household charge. They have not done so because it is unjust. They understand that it will not pay for council services and are fed up paying new taxes in order to bailout private banking debt.“This motion is about protecting their privacy. It would be wrong for the council to access ESB bills and social welfare information from families in Donegal. “I understand that some members of Fianna Fáil agree that the council should not do this. I hope that they will support me on Tuesday.” HOUSEHOLD CHARGE: FIANNA FAIL MAY JOIN SINN FEIN TO HAMPER TAX COLLECTION was last modified: April 14th, 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) Tags:HOUSEHOLD CHARGE: FIANNA FAIL MAY JOIN SINN FEIN TO HAMPER TAX COLLECTIONlast_img read more


first_imgHSE bosses have issued a winter vomiting bug alert in a bid to stop its spread in Co Donegal.At this time of year there is an increase in the numbers of people who have Norovirus (winter vomiting bug) in the community.To help curtail the spread of the ‘Winter Vomiting bug’, the North West Public Health Department is appealing to the public to take precautions to protect their health and to adhere strictly to visiting restrictions and hygiene guidelines when visiting nursing homes, hospitals and health services. Dr. Anthony Breslin, HSE Public Health Specialist said: “Norovirus is a common cause of gastroenteritis; it does not usually cause serious illness, but it is very easily spread. People who contract it can be infectious for 48 hours after they recover.“When it gets into hospitals or nursing homes, it can cause serious disruption, for example ward closures, cancelled operations and added pressure on emergency departments.“It is important that ill and vulnerable patients in these settings do not become more ill than they already are. So please cooperate with your local hospital/ nursing home policy on visiting.”Without the cooperation of the public this virus can spread very quickly throughout nursing homes and hospitals, causing discomfort to patients and disruption to services. To reduce the likelihood of spread of norovirus it is important to remember the following: If you have recently had vomiting / diarrhoea, do not visit a hospital or nursing home until you have been well for 48 hours.If your child has had vomiting / diarrhoea, they should not go to school/crèche until they have been well for 48 hours.To stop spread of Norovirus at home and in the community:At home, wash your hands regularly with hot water after using the toilet and when touching food.If someone vomits at home, use hot water and detergent to clean up any soiling and wash your hands thoroughly after. If you are sick you should remain off work until you have been well for 48 hours.Treatment; there is no specific treatment for norovirus apart from sipping plenty of clear fluids such as water or flat lemonade.Symptoms will usually last only a day or two but can, occasionally last longer. If you are concerned (e.g. prolonged vomiting/diarrhoea especially in small children and elderly people), telephone your GP for advice¸ to reduce the possibility of bringing norovirus into the GP surgery.HSE IN WINTER VOMITING BUG WARNING was last modified: December 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)Tags:donegalHSE IN WINTER VOMITING BUG WARNINGlast_img read more
