Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Mourinho does not consider himself to a fading force at present, with his future plans hinting at a lengthy stay with United after already committing to a contract extension through to 2020.Quizzed by GQ Magazine on whether he is any closer to feeling tired, the Red Devils boss said: “No. No! I am not close at all.“I think being the coach of a club is my job. Because I need to play matches every week and train every day.“I would say I am even further away from being tired now than I was a few years ago.”While focused on club matters for the foreseeable future, Mourinho is among those looking forward to international competition at World Cup 2018.He is expecting the global elite to shine on a Russian stage this summer, with there a number of iconic figures ready to lead their respective nations in the pursuit of global glory.Cristiano Ronaldo Ricardo Quaresma Portugal 03232018Mourinho said: “Players like [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo are so good that they can make their teams better than they are on paper. So I think Argentina and Portugal can do well.“Brazil, because of their manager Tite, can play well tactically and defensively, but they still have that natural Brazilian talent. They will be a team to watch.“And of the European teams, Spain looked really strong in qualifying. They have a mix of good experienced players and quality players.“But you never know… there can always be a surprise at the World Cup.”Portugal were the surprise package at Euro 2016 as they swept to a first major title and Mourinho believes his fellow countrymen can be in the mix again two years on.He added: “Well, Portugal did get to the semi-final again in 2006 and we also won the European Championship in 2016, so that means we are among the best teams in the world.“Portugal is the kind of country where new talent is always coming through and in the current national team I think we have even better players than in the squad two years ago. So Portugal can do anything.“Can we be world champions? I don’t dare say that, but on our day we can beat anyone.”last_img read more

Geotechnical Map and Engineering Report Developed for Montego Bay

first_imgStory Highlights The Mines and Geology Division in the Ministry of Transport and Mining has developed a geotechnical map and engineering report of Montego Bay, which provide credible data to guide development planning.Deputy Commissioner of Mines, Leighton Williams, handed over the documents to the St. James Municipal Corporation on Thursday (October 4).He said the map and detailed report on the engineering geology of Montego Bay and surrounding areas were produced following a comprehensive three-year assessment, and will provide sound guidance for engineering construction, planning and infrastructural development.The documents will serve to enhance the city’s resilience to natural disasters and geotechnical hazards.“Our task is to clearly mark the path that leads to the goal of reducing the impact of geological hazards and risks,” Mr. Williams noted.“In order to do this, it is necessary to shift our thinking… . We need to change from a reactive approach to a proactive approach as it relates to disaster management, where vulnerable areas are clearly identified, zoned and appropriately utilised through proper development planning,” he pointed out.The Mines and Geology Division is working on geotechnical maps and engineering reports for other critical areas of the island.

Rebuilding after disasters should stress safer better Goodale says

first_imgOTTAWA – As the devastating floodwaters recede in Ontario and Quebec, the key to preventing a similar disaster in future is to avoid making the mistakes that led to problems in the first place, says Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.The philosophy of “build back better” will be on the agenda when Goodale next meets his provincial and territorial counterparts, to better ensure cities are protected from what he says is a very real peril in climate change.“I think there will be an appetite to actually grasp this, because the pace at which these issues are arising is clearly accelerating — one of the consequences we believe of the phenomenon of climate change,” Goodale said.He pointed to flooding in Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta in the last four years, as well as ice storms in New Brunswick and last year’s wildfire in Fort McMurray.“There’s a pattern here and it behooves us all to take this seriously.”Getting better information is a key to building safer cities, he added.Officials are working on updates to national floodplain maps to help local officials make better decisions about where to build. The work comes almost a year after the federal environment commissioner warned that the maps had not been properly updated in 20 years.The federal government has pledged cash for risk assessments and new infrastructure construction, hoping to nudge cities into making better decisions about what projects they need and how badly they need them done.As well, this year’s federal budget earmarked $2 billion in infrastructure funding over 11 years, most of it to be spent after 2021, to help disaster-proof communities. A further $281 million over 11 years is set aside to help communities adapt to climate change.Federal Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi wants communities to release any maps or data about flooding concerns in their communities in order to help themselves and residents make better decisions about building in flood-prone areas.Internal government reports show that some municipal leaders have been wary about mapping — and publicizing — flood risks, even going so far as to turn down free mapping tools. Documents obtained by The Canadian Press show the concerns revolve around whether the information, once public, will reduce property values, increase a municipality’s legal liability and lead to a political backlash from voters.Sohi acknowledged that releasing the information is controversial in some municipalities, but it’s the only way homeowners will be able to decide how to protect their properties.“It’s the biggest investment people make and they want to make sure it’s properly protected,” Sohi said Wednesday.“I think withholding information doesn’t help in that situation. I know it’s risky, it’s very controversial.”A spokesman for Sohi later said it is up to individual cities to decide whether to release the information, not the federal government, and doing so won’t be tied to requirements for any government infrastructure programs.Federal infrastructure funds can’t move to cities until provinces sign funding agreements, a process that could take months.The long timeline for spending could be a problem for municipalities that could use the help sooner, said NDP infrastructure critic Matthew Dube.“Communities are — and what we’re seeing now is proof of that and what we will continue to see — in desperate need of having those dollars,” Dube said, referring to flooding in Ontario and Quebec.Conservative MP Tony Clement said the government has to come up with a better policy in regards to flood planning, including how to target infrastructure dollars.“I have yet to see any of that infrastructure money go out, but certainly part of that infrastructure money should go to flood planning so that we can alleviate these situations in the future,” Clement said.— Follow @jpress on Twitterlast_img read more

Jody WilsonRaybould thrown under the bus to save corporate and political elites

first_imgInFocusIt’s a scandal that has rocked the Liberal government for the past month.Canada’s first Indigenous attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould quit cabinet over what she says was pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to do favors for SNC-Lavalin, an engineering giant based in vote-rich Quebec that is facing bribery, fraud and corruption charges.When she refused to interfere in the prosecution, despite four months of “consistent and sustained pressure,” she said she was demoted to Veterans Affairs.The PMO says it’s all just a misunderstanding and nothing was untoward.This week we put the scandal InFocus to find out what it means for Wilson-Raybould, who continues to sit as the Liberal MP for Vancouver Granville and says she will seek to retain her seat in the upcoming federal election.What does it mean to the Trudeau brand – a self-proclaimed feminist and an Indigenous ally? And how will Indian country react to the scandal when it comes time to vote?Wei Wai Kai Chief Bill Wilson, was part of an Indigenous leadership group who fought former prime minister Pierre Trudeau to have the Constitution Act enshrine Indigenous rights in the 1980s.He is also the father of Wilson-Raybould.He told InFocus Host Melissa Ridgen she’s been smeared by the government she works for in order to save corporate and political elites she stood up to.“It’s part of her character, her upbringing, the fact that she is a native Indian woman of high birth who was given a mandate in her own tribe to keep order and enforce the rule of law,” Wilson said.He also teed off on the prime minister and Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde.“(Pierre Trudeau) was  smartest white politician that they ever put up,” Wilson said. “His son did not inherit a great deal of that intellect.”“He sent out his watchdogs to bite Jody’s leg off and personalize this as though ‘poor little Jody didn’t know what she was doing and couldn’t take the pressure,’” Wilson said. “He picked on the wrong, wrong woman, he picked on the wrong family.”Bellegarde didn’t defend Wilson-Raybould, or criticize the government for it’s treatment of her, and instead called the scandal “a distraction,” which Wilson also takes exception with.“I don’t care how much core funding you give me, this lady has stood up for our rights, the rule of law, Aboriginal people and women and you are doing wrong and you could cut off my core funding if you want too,” Wilson said, of how he believes Bellegarde should have reacted to the scandal.“But I don’t know many Indians on the honorarium, expense circuit who’d do that.”Like Wilson-Raybould, Rachel Snow of the Stoney Nakoda First Nation is a lawyer and her late father Chief John Snow also battled the elder Trudeau.But unlike Wilson-Raybould, doesn’t believe the system is fixable from within and when Indigenous people become involved in Canadian politics they’re validating the oppressor.“People agree with her principled stand (on standing up to the PMO and not fixing SNC’s legal troubles) but they still have questions about whether or not she did enough for the Indigenous people in her role as the Attorney General or Justice Minister,” Snow said.Bruce Spence is a seasoned journalist and political analyst and member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation. As a producer with APTN National News, he has had a front row seat to multiple governments and scandals.“As soon as she opened her mouth and started talking, I could tell, there is something coming here,” Spence said of watching Wilson-Raybould’s bombshell testimony before the justice committee last week.“She laid it out like any good prosecutor would. A case. And it’s hard to dispute it,” Spencer said.He said that while he believes she devastated her party’s credibility, Indigenous voters aren’t likely to vote Conservative, and the NDP federally don’t have enough support in other demographics for a bump in Indigenous votes to make a big difference in the election outcome.Brock Pitawanakwat of the Whitefish River First Nation is an assistant professor in Indigenous Health and Wellness at York University, a research fellow at the Yellowhead Institute and a regular panelist with Media Indigena.When asked if he thinks the prime minister underestimated the strength of character of his former attorney general, he said, “I do, and I think he also did the same with Jane Philpott.”Philpott quit cabinet this week in solidarity with Wilson-Raybould.“I think they (Wilson-Raybould and Phillpott) really did believe the rhetoric that this wasn’t the old Liberal party anymore,” Pitawanikwat said. “They were going to put away the sponsorship scandal that took down Chrétien and Paul Martin’s governments and it was going to be a new era and they would be part of an ethical government and I think they held themselves and colleagues to account for that.“That was the standard they were expecting and when the Prime Minister and his senior advisors failed to back that up, they decided that they couldn’t stay.”last_img read more

France Pays Tribute to Late King Mohammed V

Paris – Although the late King Mohammed V bravely defended Morocco’s interests, he has never failed to affirm deep bonds with France nor his solidarity in hardships, said on Tuesday French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius at a dinner held in Paris to mark the 60th anniversary of La Celle-Saint Cloud agreements that ended the exile of the late monarch and started transition to Morocco’s independence.Recalling that French General de Gaulle granted to the Sovereign the prestigious distinction of liberation companion, the head of the French diplomacy also evoked the memory of the late King Hassan II who was present both in exile and during his father’s triumphant return to Morocco.Fabius also paid tribute to the memory of French people who supported Morocco’s legitimate aspiration to independence, stressing that 60 years after the La Celle-Saint Cloud agreement “our two sovereign nations, under the impulse of King Mohammed VI and President François Hollande, are looking to a bright future of solidarity”The two countries are endeavoring together for the settlement of the crises in Libya, in the Middle East, in the Sahel and are closely cooperating to save the planet from global warming, he went on. France and Morocco are also playing a crucial part in the rapprochement between the two Mediterranean banks and develop trade and entrepreneurship, research and innovation, said Fabius who noted that the strong relations between the two countries in culture are promoting development and securing security, to better serve the youth. In a message read out by Prince Moulay Rachid, King Mohammed VI stressed on Tuesday that friendship between Morocco and France should be able to reinvent itself, at all times, so that both our countries may keep pace with the changes they are experiencing and rise, together, to the challenges of the 21st century.The King also affirmed that Morocco and France should continue to move forward together and to tap their brainpower and acumen to come up with innovative answers to the major issues that are of concern to the international community.With MAP read more

UN staff and others visit displaced camp to see whether Sudan is

The three-day joint mission to Darfur is also probing the overall security situation and whether it is safe for some of the estimated 1.2 million IDPs to return to their homes.UN spokesman Fred Eckhard told reporters today that the verification mission this morning visited an IDP camp at Nyala, the provincial capital of South Darfur. Heavy rains in the region are making it difficult for the group to travel quickly.The mission has been sent as experts from Security Council member countries continue discussions on a draft resolution on Sudan that aims to end the attacks of the militia and restore security.UN relief agencies say they remain concerned that the Sudanese Government is pressuring IDPs, sometimes with promises of food and supplies, to either return to their home villages or to move to other relocation sites.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that while there have been not any signs of forced relocation during the past week in Darfur, Sudanese officials continue to talk of an imminent return.Janjaweed militias are still acting with impunity in some areas of Darfur, and UN relief agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have suspended operations in certain areas because of insecurity, according to OCHA.About 1.2 million people live as IDPs and at least 180,000 others are refugees in neighbouring Chad because of the Janjaweed attacks and the fighting between Government forces and two rebel groups.The observer mission has been organized under the auspices of the Joint Implementation Mechanism (JIM), which was set up after the UN and Sudan signed a communiqué on 3 July outlining their commitments to alleviate what has been described as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.On 2 August the mission is scheduled to report its findings to a meeting of the JIM, which will be attended by Jan Pronk, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan.Meanwhile, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has arranged a training programme for Sudanese police officers to help them investigate cases of child rape, which is reported to be widespread in Darfur.Two Jordanian police officers spent three days training Sudanese officers on sensitive techniques for interviewing children who have suffered some form of sexual assault.Describing the training scheme as a first step, UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy said rape should never be excused as inevitable during times of war.”While insecurity is still rampant in Darfur, the Government of Sudan has a responsibility to protect its women and girls from the extraordinary brutality they have endured for far too long,” she said.In a separate development, the World Health Organization (WHO) will tomorrow start a polio vaccination campaign in North Darfur. read more

Petronas closes acquisition of Progress after it wins approval from Ottawa

Petronas closes acquisition of Progress after it wins approval from Ottawa CALGARY – Malaysian state-owned energy firm Petronas has completed its $6-billion takeover of Progress Energy Resources Corp. (TSX:PRQ).The deal won Ottawa’s approval on Friday after having initially been rejected as not being of “net benefit” to Canada.Progress’ shares and debentures are expected to be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday.Petronas plans to build a liquefied natural gas export terminal near Prince Rupert, B.C., which will now be 60 per cent larger than would have been the case had the deal not gone through.The Petronas Progress deal was approved on the same day Ottawa gave the green light to the $15.1-billion takeover of Nexen Inc. (TSX:NXY) by China’s CNOOC Ltd.That larger and more controversial transaction still has more hoops to jump through before it closes, including U.S. regulatory approval, as Nexen has operations in the Gulf of Mexico. by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 12, 2012 1:21 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Unforgettable an oral history of the 2013 hurling championship part 1

first_imgINPHO/Donall FarmerJohnny McCaffrey: “We felt Wexford had got a hold in the first game and then bullied us. We weren’t going to let that happen again.“Once we got to the replay and won it, we felt the pressure lifted from us. No one was going to be giving us a chance going in against Kilkenny.”McCaffrey and Dublin then came within seconds of a massive shock, leading Kilkenny deep into injury time before TJ Reid popped up with a dramatic equaliser to force a replay.Johnny McCaffrey: “It was a game that we thought we should have won. We went ahead after 55 minutes and it was tit for tat after that.“I remember vividly that we got the score to go ahead and then the ball came back downfield. There was about 10 or 15 seconds when it was up for grabs and I thought this is our chance to clear it and win it. But then TJ got the score.“A lot of people said we’d lost our chance and we were disappointed with the draw.”INPHO/Lorraine O’SullivanThat same day, Cork and Clare met in the Gaelic Grounds for a Munster semi-final that gave little hint of things to come later in the summer. With the wind at their backs the Rebels were rampant in the second half and won by eight points.Anthony Nash (Cork goalkeeper): “We’d played them in the league twice so we knew a lot about them. We were under pressure as a lot of people had been saying bad things about us and writing bad things about JBM and the management.”Brendan Bugler: “No matter where you went, people were talking about a Limerick-Clare Munster final. We were hearing all this talk but then you’re thinking that we had played Cork in a titanic league battle. We knew what they were about.”INPHO/Cathal NoonanAnthony Nash: “We knew we were good enough going into the game. Clare opened us a few times and our shooting was a bit wayward. It was a pressure game for us internally so it was really good to get a win.“We were without big players. Lorcan (McLoughlin) was injured, Pa (Cronin) was sick. Seamie (Harnedy) mightn’t have got his chance but for that. He did though and proved to be a fantastic player all year.”Brendan Bugler: “First and foremost, Cork were by far the better team. Conditions were bad for hurling though, there was a massive gale blowing down the field. We lost John Conlon, a pivotal player for us, when he got concussed.“We created six goalscoring chances and took none. We went in at half-time, a few points up and that just was not enough with that wind. Cork dominated in the second half and fully deserved it.”For Dublin and Kilkenny, the summer hinged on a Saturday night replay in Portlaoise. Would the Dubs get a second chance after letting their lead slip a week earlier?They did and Anthony Daly’s men went on to face Galway in the Leinster final; Kilkenny would have to plot an unusual route through the qualifiers.Johnny McCaffrey: “It was exciting to play them on a Saturday night. There was an added buzz. Portlaoise was full, there was good weather and it was a great atmosphere. Dotsy was on fire early on and our half-back line was excellent.INPHO/James Crombie“The subs were outstanding as well, Mark Schutte and Shane Durkin. Danny Sutcliffe’s goal was key, he’d to put it through so many bodies but he went for it.It was strange when the final whistle went. We knew the crowd would be ecstatic and there was a 10 minute period in the dressing-room when we were delighted.But then it was a case of, we want to go on to win a Leinster championship now. We had to be mature. We met up the Sunday morning for recovery and looked towards Galway. INPHO/Morgan TreacyAnthony Nash: “When you heard we were playing Kilkenny, you just knew it was a huge task. The training after that game was ferocious. Lads got the grit between their teeth. It wasn’t a case that we felt we owed Kilkenny one. We just wanted to stay in the championship.“The sending-off was obviously a big turning point as they lost their best player in Henry Shefflin. We also felt it we didn’t concede a goal in the second-half, we’d be on the road to victory.“The penalty was their main chance. The first strike I didn’t realise until afterwards how close Tommy Walsh was. With the second from Richie Power, I did try to second guess and went to my right.“Lorcan always slags me that he had it covered, but given the goal he conceded from a free against in the county intermediate final in October, I’m not sure! With the rebound, it was just instinct.”Paraic Duffy: “I think that was the day the championship was blown open.Until Kilkenny went out, people always felt there was a kick in them. But when they were gone the complexion was suddenly so different. IT ENDED UNDER the Croke Park floodlights with the Liam MacCarthy Cup safely in Pat Donnellan’s hands.But long before Clare’s moment of glory, the 2013 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship earned its place as one of the most magical summers in GAA history. It was the story of the fall of the old order and the rise of a new one (for this year at least); of grown men in tears, celebrating provincial titles they feared they would never see again; of ups and downs, heroes and villains; and of two finals that will be spoken about for years to come.In the words of some of the men who made it happen, this is that story.INPHO/James CrombieJuneClare’s road to the All-Ireland started on the first Sunday of June. Having dodged league relegation by the skin of their teeth, Davy Fitzgerald’s men got their championship off to a winning start against Waterford.Brendan Bugler (Clare wing-back): “One of the big goals this year was to win a first Munster championship game since 2008. Beating Waterford was big for us and it was the first senior victory in Munster for the likes of John Conlon and Colin Ryan, who’d been involved for a few years.“Waterford destroyed us for about 20-25 minutes but we seemed to open up near the end. The victory was the main thing.”Dublin’s challenge for a first Leinster title since 1961 very nearly came unstuck in the quarter-finals when they were held to a draw by Wexford.Johnny McCaffrey (Dublin midfielder): “That was probably one of the big turning points in our year.“It looked like we were going to be knocked out, they were on a roll and the crowd were behind them. Then Mark Schutte came on and helped Eamonn Dillon get a goal. Mikey Carton hit a super point. We didn’t play well but we stayed alive.People remember Ger Loughnane’s ‘constipated hurling’ comment from that night. I suppose we were under pressure. With stuff like that, you just don’t let it start to effect you. You keep things inside your own house.After pushing Kilkenny all the way in the league final Tipperary were strong favourites to claim their third successive Munster title, but in a barnstorming semi-final at the Gaelic Grounds it was Limerick who came out on top.Brendan Maher (Tipperary midfielder): “I wouldn’t say the mood was confident or that we were happy because obviously there was a bit of disappointment there from the Kilkenny game. [The league final] was still a loss. It’s a results game and you still have the same disappointment whether you lose by one point or 20 points.”Seamus Hickey (Limerick wing-forward): “Being perfectly honest, I was very confident beforehand. I believed in the group of players that we had. We coming together at a good time. The gameplan we had was good and we were getting the most out of ourselves. It was on in Limerick as well which gave us a great chance. I’d a lot of respect for Tipperary but I felt we were in a good place.”“It was a gorgeous day, the sun really baking down. We did a shorter warm-up than usual, it was so hot. When the game started off it was all a bit frantic.“We’d a load of chances for goals early on, (Seamus) Callanan had two chances for them. It was ebbing and flowing but then finally Seanie Tobin stuck one in the net.”Brendan Maher: “It was just one of those games where Limerick were really up for it. Everything went right for them that day. They had the breaks. It’s just one of those things that happens, that’s the way sport is, some days it runs for you and other days it doesn’t.”INPHO/James CrombieSeamus Hickey: “In the first ten minutes of the second-half, they got a run on us and were able to take their chances better. How did we turn it around? John made the changes and they made a big help. He brought on Dowling, Downes and Moran. They’re lads that would be on most other county teams.They did the damage when the game was in the melting point. We got our noses in front and stayed there. It was a massive win for us. The memories of the celebrations after will stay with me for a long time.A week on from their ‘constipated hurling’ in Wexford Park, Dublin were far too strong for 14-man Wexford in the replay. They won by seven points, setting up a Leinster semi against reigning All-Ireland champions Kilkenny. INPHO/Morgan TreacyThe qualifiers came to a head in a dramatic Phase 3 double-header in Semple Stadium. Clare blew a five-point lead in the final minutes before eventually regrouping to beat Wexford in extra-time while Kilkenny also needed an additional period to beat Waterford.Brendan Bugler: “We started well but in the second half things started to unravel. Next thing our lead was down to four points and within two minutes they were back to draw. I couldn’t see us scoring and we were lucky enough the referee blew full-time. If the ball went down the field again, I reckon they’d have won it.“There was a sense of relief before half-time. We didn’t panic and just regrouped. We knew there was another gear in us. There was a massive impact by Cathal McInerney for those goals but the work done by Conor McGrath for them was just huge.”Almost 43,000 packed into the Gaelic Grounds for the Munster final between Limerick and Cork, and for those in green and white, it was a party for the ages.The game was finely poised when Cork’s Pa Horgan was sent off shortly before half-time. Chasing their first provincial crown in 17 seasons, Limerick were determined not to waste their numerical advantage and went on to win 0-24 to 0-15.Seamus Hickey: “The Tipperary game gave us an awful lot of confidence as we knew what performance we were capable of and how we could bring on players. With Cork having played so well against Clare, we didn’t get ahead of ourselves.“The first-half was a strange one as the wind was strong enough. Our aim was to get in at half-time within a score. Declan Hannon was very sharp for us, Seamus Harnedy was doing well for them. Cork started coming in strongly to it.” INPHO/Morgan TreacyBrendan Bugler: “The previous two games were not on TV so we came in under the radar against Galway. We’d been going quietly and slowly going through the games. A lot of us had played in 2011 above in Salthill, when we got absolutely hockeyed by Galway. That was one of the worst days ever in a Clare jersey.”Joe Canning: “I think everybody knew how good Clare were – apart from the bookies I suppose. Most of our lads would know them from colleges and from underage. Losing Johnny Coen early on was massive for us because he was central to our plan on the day.”Brendan Bugler: “It was a big win for us. It was also a day when we played to a certain way. The movement of the forwards and the work rate was something we’d been working on all year. It was really starting to come through. The open spaces suited us.”Joe Canning: “I don’t think they played as well against us as they did in the All-Ireland. You couldn’t tell back then, nobody could tell even going into the semi-final against Limerick whether they were going to win an All-Ireland or not.“We didn’t lie down. In that second half, we tried to get back as much as we could but they tacked on a score here and there. They were the better team on the day, simple as that.”– Brendan Bugler, Anthony Nash, Seamus Hickey, Johnny McCaffrey and Paraic Duffy were in conversation with Fintan O’Toole; Brendan Maher and Joe Canning were in conversation with Niall Kelly.Ready for more?

They were under a lot of pressure as Limerick had a good gameplan.“Hoggy’s sending-off was detrimental because we lost a player and one of our best players at that. We believed it was the wrong decision and we were proved right afterwards. Maybe the game would have been different if we had him all through.”Seamus Hickey: “The sending off of Patrick Horgan was huge. It was a crucial decision. There was no intent and malice to it. Losing a key man was a big blow to them.“We used the wind to our advantage in the second-half. Our backs were going to be under less pressure and as it went on, we took over. We were five points up and in a very strong position when I left the field.”Anthony Nash: “Limerick were very hungry. They got a run on us with ten minutes to go. It was a great achievement by them.”Seamus Hickey: “I was very lucky that I got the last ten minutes to sit back and soak it all in. The final whistle sounded and it was amazing. The outpouring of the emotion from the players and the fans was the highlight of my career. I’ll never forget it.”INPHO/Lorraine O’SullivanSo with Dublin and Limerick safely into the All-Ireland semi-finals, the remaining counties met on the last Sunday in July to fight for the two remaining places.Henry Shefflin’s red card was a major talking point as Cork dethroned Kilkenny while later that afternoon, Clare’s sweeper system flummoxed Galway. JulyAfter losing to Cork, Clare regrouped over some Mi-Wadi and biscuits in Davy’s house and then thumped Laois in Phase 2 of the qualifiers. Brendan Bugler: “Laois had put on a great performance against Galway and are one of the most improved teams in the country. When we played them, we’d a gameplan after how they’d done against Galway.“We didn’t change anything as such. Lads just got a little more freedom. It was a win and the start of it.”But all eyes were on a packed Nowlan Park that evening as Kilkenny and Tipp met in a heavyweight eliminator. The memory of their All-Ireland trilogy was still fresh but now for both counties, it was win or go home.Tipp lost Lar Corbett to injury early on and when Henry Shefflin came off the bench to make his first appearance of the season, it set the stage for a dramatic Kilkenny win.Brendan Maher: “It was quite a short build-up. We were training for a number of weeks not knowing who we were playing and when the draw was made, we still didn’t know because of their drawn game.“You were building yourself up for a do-or-die game so it didn’t really matter who you were playing but the fact then that it was Kilkenny did add to it.”Paraic Duffy (GAA Director-General): “I got to Kilkenny that evening, my wife and son were with me, and I couldn’t believe the atmosphere. The place was packed. We walked around the town, up to Kilkenny Castle and the mood was special.“I met people from Monaghan, Sambo McNaughton from Antrim. Everyone understood the significance of the game. It could have been Kilkenny’s last stand and that lead to the anticipation.”“It did strike me that you’d love to see more games played in provincial venues that are full to capacity. It was perfection.” INPHO/Donall FarmerBrendan Maher: “The atmosphere down there in Nowlan Park that day, it was a special occasion. I suppose it was a great spectacle for a supporter. I won’t say that it was a good game to be involved in because we lostI still haven’t watched the full game. I always find it hard to watch games that you lose. But I will watch it because I want to learn from it.“Lar was buzzing that day. He was causing all sorts of havoc up in the forwards so that was a massive loss for us. We just fell short.”Paraic Duffy: “I’ve never seen supporters have a relationship with their team like Kilkenny had that night. They were one. It was an act of faith. When Henry came on, I’ve never heard a roar in a GAA ground like it. It was a statement of how they felt about Henry.”INPHO/Donall FarmerWhile Kilkenny lived to fight another day, their Leinster rivals Dublin and Galway still had to fight for the provincial title. The Dubs had played four games in five weeks just to get this far but they showed no signs of fatigue as they blew Galway away by 12 points, lifting the Bob O’Keeffe Cup for the first time in 52 years.Johnny McCaffrey: “We’d played four games but still hadn’t won anything. We’d got better in each game we’d played so we were hoping that upward curve would continue. I was feeling good before it.”Joe Canning (Galway forward): “Dublin just got a bit of a run on us early on in the game, in the first half, and I suppose it was a bit too much for us. They got a goal I think at the start of the second half and again the bridge was too far for us to get back.”INPHO/Ryan ByrneJohnny McCaffrey: “I came off with about 15 minutes to go so I was able to look on. The one thing that stands out is Danny (Sutcliffe) getting the score with a few minutes left and I remember saying to Martin Quilty alongside me, ‘Jesus, we have this now’. It was hard to believe you could say that in a Leinster final.”Joe Canning: “Look at Dublin over the last couple of years. Winning Leinster was a huge year for them considering the couple of years they had before that. It’s good for hurling to have a little change as well I suppose. It just didn’t happen for us. Dublin were the better team on the day.”Johnny McCaffrey: “When you’re in the moment, you don’t realise the enormity of the occasion.There was a lovely touch from the Leinster Council that Jimmy Grey (the last Dublin winning captain) passed over the cup to me. It was a very special moment. There was great emotion for Dublin people afterwards.last_img read more

US Election How best to invest following Donald Trumps victory

first_img Following the surprising win of Republican candidate Donald Trump in the US presidential election, investors are today scratching their heads and trying to figure out what this means for the economy and for stock markets for the next four years.President-elect Trump has zero political experience, and thus his economic policies are more difficult to predict than with previous presidents-elect.Given the resounding majorities won by the Republican Party in both the US Senate and House of Representatives, the road is clear for the Republicans under Trump to pass new legislation for at least the next two years, when the US mid-term elections will be held.Greater government spending: Building and InfrastructurePresident Trump is likely to spend on infrastructure projects across America, including maintenance of road networks, improving airports and oil and gas pipelines. The most powerful economy in the world has surprisingly poor infrastructure, evident when you take a taxi out of Manhattan to New Yorks LaGuardia airport and experience the numerous potholes in the road.This infrastructure spending will benefit construction-related companies such as building company CRH (UK code: CRH), and equipment rental company Ashtead (code: AHT), both of which have huge exposure to the US.Greater government spending: Defence and SecurityDefence and security is a second area where President Trump is likely to spend more money, as this is a typical Republican policy priority.Homeland security is a very high priority if Trump is to deliver on many of his pledges to his voters. This higher defence and security spending should benefit suppliers to the US government such as BAe Systems (code: BA.).Good news for Health careThe US and European healthcare sectors have suffered in the lead-up to this election on the basis that the favourite, Hillary Clinton, was likely to enact heavy price regulation on pharmaceutical companies in the US, limiting their profit-making ability.Over the year to date, US healthcare companies like Pfizer and Merck underperformed the benchmark S and P 500 index by 10% in the run-up to this election.Since Trumps victory, healthcare stocks have bounced by more than the market, starting to claw back some of this lost ground, as Trump is seen as being much more business-friendly to this industry than Hillary Clinton would have been.In the UK, Shire plc (code SHP) is a key member of the FTSE 100 index that has huge exposure to the US pharmaceutical market, made even greater through its recent acquisition of US company Baxalta.Policy uncertainty is probably not good news for government bondsWith Donald Trump likely to increase government spending in order to make good on some of his populist promises to the US electorate, this extra spending is likely to result in more borrowing via bonds by the US government.The expectation of higher borrowing is already resulting in higher bond yields, and thus lower bond prices, not only for US Treasury bonds but also for UK gilts.So investors are likely to do better in the near-term focusing on healthcare, construction and defence/security stocks, and staying away from the gilt market until bond yields stabilise at higher levels.

Final Fantasy Tactics lands on iPhone August 4th

first_imgSquare Enix is one of the larger publisher/developers to embrace the iPhone and App Store platforms. Owners of the iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad have been rewarded with access to Final Fantasy games and Secret of Mana. They are expensive, but then Square Enix can get away with the high prices due to the popularity of its games.Now a new game is set to arrive this week from the Japanese developer, and the price is pushing the limits of acceptability in my opinion. Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions will become available on August 4th, the price is a sky high $15.99, which must be one of the highest on the App Store for a game.Final Fantasy Tactics has seen outings on the DS and PSP in recent times, with both games receiving high scores and offering up great turn-based strategy gameplay. Now that gameplay is coming to the App Store, and is based on the PSP version that was released in 2007.Square Enix has confirmed that the game is compatible with the 3GS (but not the 3G), and that the iPad version will take an extra month of development, so we should see it the first week of September. There’s also no multiplayer and no add-ons available.Because you could be playing this on an iPhone that receives calls, the game has also been given an autosave feature meaning your game state isn’t lost.At $15.99 this is a very expensive game for the App Store, but one that fans of the tactics games may be willing to pay. Here’s a gameplay video to help you decide if it’s worth it.More at the Square Enix Facebook page, via GameSpotlast_img read more

It honors innovative programs in education, skills training, standard setting, business and social innovation, knowledge creation, citizenship and community service.The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging is a coalition of 41 organizations dedicated to raising awareness and promoting education about radiation protection for children when undergoing medical imaging examinations. The Alliance was founded by the Society for Pediatric Radiology, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, the American College of Radiology and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine. The Alliance launched the Image Gently campaign in January 2008 to educate radiologic technologists, medical physicists, radiologists, pediatricians and parents about radiation dose used during computed tomography (CT) examinations performed on children.“The Alliance is honored to receive this award from the association community,” said Marilyn Goske, M.D., chair of the Alliance and Silverman Chair for Radiology Education at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “It confirms that the public recognizes how important it is to ‘child-size’ the radiation dose delivered during pediatric medical imaging examinations.”The Image Gently Web site, www.imagegently.org , includes practical protocols that can be used to optimize pediatric technique used during CT imaging of children based on their weight. The campaign emphasizes the need to differentiate these methods for children compared to adults. More than 2,789 providers have taken the pledge on the Web site to “image gently” when performing pediatric imaging exams. The Web site also provides information for parents , including an imaging record card that parents can use to record where, when and what types of medical imaging studies are performed on their children. Many of the materials on the Web site have been translated into Chinese, German, Korean, Spanish, Thai and Turkish, with translations into additional languages coming soon.“Our goal is to ensure that all children receive safe, quality care when they undergo medical imaging examinations,” explained Dr. Goske. Although the Image Gently campaign has focused so far on CT, Dr. Goske noted that it will expand later this summer to include information on pediatric interventional radiology procedures, with information on other radiology examinations to follow.Only eight programs were selected for the 2009 Associations Advance America Honor Roll. “Your program serves as a great example of the vital role associations play in improving the quality of life in communities across the country,” said John H. Graham IV, president and chief executive officer of the American Society of Association Executives. “Activities such as yours truly make America a better place in which to live.”For more information: www.acr.org and www.imagegently.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Pierre Qian explains radiotherapy to ablate VTPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:34Loaded: 2.19%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:34 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
