New Year, new job: Arsene Wenger expects to be back as manager againNew Year, new job: Arsene Wenger expects to be back as manager again

first_imgArsene Wenger left Arsenal back in May, after 22 years in charge. But the Frencheman may be back on the touchline sooner than expected.He recetly told the German newspaper Bild, that he expects to be back in work in the New Year and has fielded enquiries from all over the world.He said did not know what his next job would be but he felt rested and am ready to work again.”I believe (I will) start again on Jan. 1. I don’t know (where) yet,” the Frenchman told German newspaper Bild in an interview published on Wednesday.”There are associations, national teams, it could be also in Japan,” added the 68-year-old who coached Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight before joining Arsenal.”From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world.”Wenger won three Premier League titles at Arsenal but his final years at the north London club were more turbulent.He endured a barrage of criticism from fans and pundits in the latter part of his reign for his tactical approach and perceived failings in the transfer market as the London club went 14 seasons without lifting the Premier League trophy.Wenger also said that Germany need Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil to come out of international retirement. Ozil announced the end of his Germany career shortly after returning from the World Cup in Russia.He had been widely criticised for posing alongside Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in a photograph in May which also featured Germany team mate Ilkay Gundogan.advertisementOzil, a member of the 2014 World Cup-winning team, said he had faced “racism and disrespect” because of his Turkish roots.”I believe that Germany needs Ozil. I hope that (manager) Joachim Loew can convince him that he will come back,” Wenger said.”Ozil is a super football player, was not the worst in the World Cup. I did not love that he left the German national team.”I love it when the players are as good as possible. He loses a bit if he does not play at an international level.”(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

Campaigners say case of Bahraini footballer Hakeem al-Araibi now an ‘emergency’Campaigners say case of Bahraini footballer Hakeem al-Araibi now an ‘emergency’

first_imgActivists campaigning for the release of the Bahraini refugee footballer Hakeem al-Araibi, who has been detained in Thailand since November after an Interpol red notice was wrongly issued against him, say his plight has become an emergency.The warnings came from Brendan Schwab of the World Players Association and the former Australia captain Craig Foster after news that Bahrain has formally submitted an extradition request for Al-Araibi’s return. Read more Bahrain Share on Twitter Schwab and Foster were in Zurich on Monday to urge Fifa to do more to save Al-Araibi, who fled Bahrain after being beaten by police and was given refugee status by Australia, over fears he will be tortured or even killed if he is sent back.“The situation is very urgent because, even if Bahrain does not succeed in extraditing Hakeem, the consequences for him of spending months or even years in the prison while his case drags will be destroying for him,” Schwab told the Guardian. “We are clearly facing a human rights emergency which needs to be elevated to the highest levels in Bahrain and Thailand. We need to see progress – and fast – for Hakeem’s sake.”Foster, meanwhile, said he wanted the case “resolved before Friday” after meeting the Fifa secretary general, Fatma Samoura.Al-Araibi and his supporters believe the fact he was a critic of Sheikh Salman Bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa, a member of Bahrain’s ruling family when he contested the Fifa presidential election in 2015, has led Sheikh Salman to seek revenge. In 2016 Al-Araibi was given a 10-year prison sentence in absentia after being convicted of vandalising a police station, even though he was playing in a televised match at the time the crime took place.“After meeting Fifa we believe it understands the gravity of the case,” Schwab said. “The urgent challenge now for football is to come up with a way to solve it.”On Monday Bahrain’s interior minister defended his government’s pursuit of al-Araibi, claiming concerns he will face torture and unjust imprisonment if he is returned are “false reports”. Football must go in hard on Bahrain over the Hakeem al-Araibi affair Guardian Australia sport newsletter: subscribe by email Share on Facebook Asia Pacific Read more Share on Pinterest news Thailand Topics Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content Human rights Share on Messenger Share on LinkedIn Refugees Hakeem al-Araibi Share via Email Sean Ingle The minister, General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, said the rule of law prevailed in Bahrain, pointing to al-Araibi’s release on bail from the initial charges – which allowed him to flee and claim refuge in Australia.“The external interference in the internal affairs of Bahrain is unacceptable,” he said.“Those raising unfounded doubts about the integrity and independence of the Kingdom’s judicial system are not only interfering, but also attempting to influence the course of justice.”He said there was a need to “respect the legal proceedings and not to ignore the facts by spreading false reports and biased and non-objective information”.The Bahraini government’s communications office did not answer specific questions about its attempts to have al-Araibi returned, including how it obtained an Interpol red notice in contravention of Interpol policies designed to protect refugees.Previous statements from the Bahraini government defending its justice system have been labeled “absurd” by human rights groups, noting multiple investigations and reports on the torture and mistreatment of prisoners and targeting of opposition figures.Yahya Alhadid, president of Gulf Institute for Democracy and Human Rights, pointed to the recent death sentences delivered by the Bahraini court against political detainees and life sentences against opposition leaders.“This is a serious indicator of what is waiting for Hakeem if extradited back to Bahrain,” he said.“The judge, Mohammad Bin Ali al-Khalifa, who sentenced al-Araibi had upheld the court of cassation’s sentence against the prominent human rights defender, Nabeel Rajab, a few days ago, over a tweet posted on his personal Twitter account.” Australia sportlast_img read more

Thanks to the good folks at Mr. Beer, we can get everything we need in one handy kit, which comes complete with a two gallon keg; a spigot, washer and nut; a can of hopped malt extract (HME); yeast; eight 1-liter plastic bottles, bottle caps and labels; no-rinse cleaner and the handy Brewing With Mr. Beer instructional DVD. All you have to provide is three gallons of water, a one gallon container, a one quart pot, a metal or hard plastic spoon, a can opener, a measuring cup, a bowl or plate and white granulated sugar. Now let the beer-making fun begin!First we assembled the spigot. Next, we sanitized it, along with the spoon, can opener and measuring to kill all the gross bacteria and wild yeasts that could potentially produce that funky beer taste that we don’t want. Back to Beer Making 101. In case you didn’t know how beer is produced, it’s a process, called fermentation, of combining a starch source with yeast. Then the yeast devours the sugars in the starch, which produces alcohol and carbon dioxide. So basically we carefully followed all the steps in the directions and then we let the mixture sit. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, around two weeks later our homebrew was ready to be bottled! We sanitized the bottles and put a little sugar in each, along with the mixture. Then we waited again — this time around two-and-a-half weeks for the secondary brewing to take place.We let the beer sit for two more days, and invited some folks over to watch football, have some snacks and enjoy our homebrew. How awesome is that? We think we’re going to whip up a spicy batch for the holidays.

first_imgFour stories in the news for Tuesday, Feb. 19———SNC-LAVALIN STORM AWAITS RETURNING MPSThe opposition parties are charging back into the House of Commons today, loaded with questions for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about what his office did to try to help the embattled Montreal engineering company SNC-Lavalin in its corruption case. Before MPs left for a week in their ridings, Jody Wilson-Raybould was veterans affairs minister and Gerald Butts was Trudeau’s principal secretary, his closest adviser. Now they’ve both quit and it’s still not clear what Butts or anyone else in the Prime Minister’s Office might have done to push Wilson-Raybould on SNC-Lavalin when she was attorney general and had a say over the charges the company faces.———WILSON-RAYBOULD SUPPORTED BY MANY RIDING RESIDENTSCommunity leaders in MP Jody Wilson-Raybould’s Vancouver Granville riding say they’re disappointed she’s no longer in cabinet, but they respect her decision to resign. Reverend Steven Epperson says many members of his Unitarian Church of Vancouver are more left-wing than the governing Liberals, but they deeply admire Wilson-Raybould. He says they think what’s happened is a tragedy and they hope she remains in politics and continues to represent the riding as an MP. Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet last week amid allegations the Prime Minister’s Office pressured her when she was attorney general to drop criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.———PRO-PIPELINE PROTEST CONVOY NEARING OTTAWAA convoy of angry Albertans and other westerners rolls into Ottawa today for a mass protest against federal energy and environmental policies that has also become a magnet for extremist, anti-immigrant elements. A couple of hundred vehicles are expected on Parliament Hill as part of the United We Roll convoy, which began in Red Deer, Alta., on Thursday and made its way east over four days with stops for rallies along the way. The protesters want the Liberal government to scrap the carbon tax and two bills that overhaul environmental assessments of energy projects and ban oil tankers from the northern coast of British Columbia.———MAN SEEKS PAROLE IN MANSLAUGHTER OF WIFEA man who strangled his wife and concealed her body in the family home after enduring what he described as years of domestic abuse is scheduled for his first parole hearing today. Allan Shyback was convicted in 2017 of manslaughter and indignity to a body in the 2012 death of Lisa Mitchell in the Calgary home they shared with their children. His original seven-year prison term was appealed and last October the Alberta Court of Appeal added an additional three years to the sentence, saying that the judge made sentencing errors. Shyback has been in custody since 2014.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Lawyers are expected to be in a Toronto court today arguing for a new trial for Raed Jaser and Chiheb Esseghaier.

Kariyawasam said that the corrupt politicians who are attempting to return to Parliament at the next Parliament elections are looking at escaping from facing action against corruption. The ruling United National Party (UNP) says “Ali baba’s thieves” who were in the Government before the January 8 Presidential elections, are attempting to return to power.UNP spokesman Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said that the the thieves are looking at contesting the next Parliament elections but are unlikely to be endorsed by the public. “We cut the tree which was involved in corruption but the roots have yet to be fully unearthed. It is those roots which are now attempting to return to power. It is like Ali baba and the 40 thieves. But there are more than 40 thieves,” he said. The UNP MP, meanwhile, insisted that the UNP is confident it can win the Parliament elections with majority support.He also rejected the idea that President Maithripala Sirisena won the last Presidential elections only because he had the support of the minorities. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Chander, a former mayor of Leamington Spa, had worked for more than 70 hours in the week leading up to the accident, which saw him drive “full throttle” for almost 82 metres. They were not asked to return verdicts of guilty because Chander was mentally unfit to take part in the hearing. They were instead invited to rule on whether he “did the acts” alleged.Stockport-based Midland Red (South), part of Stagecoach, pleaded guilty last year to offences contrary to the Health and Safety at Work Act by permitting Chander to continue driving despite warnings about his competence and fatigue.Chander could face a supervision order at a further hearing on November 26. Midland Red, which faces an unlimited fine, will be sentenced on the same date. An elderly bus driver who killed two people when he drove into a supermarket was suffering from dementia and had crashed four times in the previous three years, a court heard.Kailash Chander, who mistook the accelerator for the brake before the fatal crash in Coventry in October 2015, was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial due to post-traumatic stress disorder and frontal lobe dementia.The 80-year-old, who was 77 at the time of the crash, was excused from attending a “finding-of-facts” trial after psychiatrists said he would be unable to give evidence or instruct lawyers with regard to the crash.Primary school pupil Rowan Fitzgerald, who was sitting at the front of the upper deck, died of a head injury, while 76-year-old pedestrian Dora Hancox died from multiple injuries after being hit by the bus and a falling lamppost.A six-day trial at Birmingham Crown Court was told Chander had been warned about his “erratic” driving by bus company Midland Red after four crashes in the previous three years. read more

first_imgNicolas Hulot : le ministre de l’Environnement idéal ?France – Déçus par la politique environnementale du gouvernement, les Français rêvent à l’aube du remaniement ministériel de voir Nicolas Hulot à la tête du ministère de l’Écologie. C’est du moins ce que révèle un sondage publié par le magazine Terra Eco.Selon ce sondage Opinionway réalisé auprès d’un échantillon de 990 personnes, ce sont 74% des Français qui estiment que le Grenelle de l’environnement lancé il y a trois ans est un échec. Déçue, la population l’est aussi quant à la signature du Pacte écologique lancé par Nicolas Hulot. 71% des personnes interrogées considèrent que le gouvernement n’a “plutôt pas” voire “pas du tout” respecté les engagements de ce texte signé en 2007 par tous les candidats à l’élection présidentielle. Toutefois, le travail de Jean-Louis Borloo, l’actuel ministre de l’Environnement, est bien plus salué, 49% des sondés jugeant sa politique “positive” ou “très positive”. Mais alors que la rumeur le sacre déjà Premier ministre lors du remaniement à venir, il est temps de penser à sa succession.Terra Eco a ainsi proposé une liste de candidats au ministère de l’Écologie. Parmi eux, c’est Nicolas Hulot qui est le plus plébiscité, avec quelque 75% des voix. Il devance ainsi le photographe-réalisateur Yann Arthus-Bertrand qui obtient 26% des votes, mais aussi Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet (16%), Corinne Lepage (16%) et Alain Juppé (12%). La navigatrice Maud Fontenoy est quant à elle sollicitée par 9% des personnes interrogées, quand la secrétaire d’État à l’Écologie Chantal Jouanno obtient 8%, et la ministre de la Santé Roselyne Bachelot 3%.Le 18 octobre 2010 à 16:09 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

ISS léquipage évacue la station à cause dun débris spatialISS léquipage évacue la station à cause dun débris spatial

first_imgISS : l’équipage évacue la station à cause d’un débris spatialSamedi, les spationautes actuellement à bord de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS) ont dû se réfugier à bord de deux capsules Soyouz. Une pièce provenant d’un vieux satellite russe est passée à proximité de l’ISS et n’a été détectée que tardivement.Le week-end a été plutôt mouvementé à bord de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). Samedi, les agences spatiales russe et américaine ont annoncé que l’équipage aujourd’hui composé de 6 spationautes avaient dû brièvement évacuer l’engin. Motif : une pièce provenant d’un vieux satellite russe menaçait l’ISS. Si ce n’est pas la première fois qu’une telle menace plane sur l’engin, le problème est ici que le fragment dangereux n’a été détecté que tardivement, vendredi matin, ne laissant donc pas le temps de mettre en place une manoeuvre d’esquive.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreLe débris provient en fait du satellite Cosmos 2251 lancé en 1993 et détruit lors d’une collision  avec le satellite de communication américain Iridium-33 en février 2009. Pour éliminer tout risque, le chef des opérations du côté américain, Gerry Jason, a décidé d’ordonner aux spationautes d’évacuer l’ISS en se réfugiant dans les deux capsules Soyouz attachées de manière permanente à la station. Celles-ci servent ainsi pour revenir sur Terre ou en cas d’urgence. C’est la troisième fois qu’une telle opération est menée mais tout s’est déroulé sans encombre. Le fragment est finalement passé à quelque 23 kilomètres de l’ISS.”La menace est passée. Les cosmonautes sont revenus pour continuer leur mission”, a déclaré un responsable du centre de contrôle de la mission russe à l’agence Interfax. “Les débris sont passés sans problème devant l’ISS”, a confirmé de son côté la NASA, précisant que le transfert de l’équipage dans les capsules avait été décidé par “mesure de précaution”. Le dernier incident de ce type remontait à juin 2011 quand un débris était passé beaucoup plus près encore, à quelque 250 mètres, de l’ISS.Des millions de débris de métal, plastique et verre tournent autour de la Terre et sont les résidus de 4.600 lancements en 55 ans d’utilisation de l’espace. A ce jour, quelque 500.000  d’entre eux font l’objet d’une surveillance rapprochée par les experts.Le 26 mars 2012 à 10:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

A notice is posted by Fidelity Bank & Trust International Ltd that the franchise will no longer be carried by their company in The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and Cayman Islands as of Friday (July 17) past. The board of Directors said they have enjoyed the relationship with Western Union but was pressed to close the doors with the change in economic times and risks. Global reports reveal that cheaper digital money services like Paypal pose too much of a threat on the $9.6 billion dollar company which has seen stocks decrease significantly this month. It was reported in the TC Weekly News in May that the company might be pulling out; again, as of Friday Western Union has closed up shop in the TCI.
