Kean’s father: My son nearly joined Man Utd

first_imgMoise Kean’s father has said that he stopped his son from joining Manchester United several years ago.The Juventus striker has emerged as one of his country’s top young talents, but he appears on the verge of a move to England. Goal reported earlier this week that the 19-year-old is set to join Everton in a deal worth an initial €32 million (£29m/$35m). Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? But it could have been different for the Italy international, who nearly joined United in his early teens according to his father. “I did stop his transfer at the time, his mother wanted to send him to Manchester [United],” Biorou Jean Kean told Omnisport.”I said no because I wanted him to stay at Juventus and keep learning. He was not mature enough yet. “To send a young boy abroad aged just 14-15 years old didn’t convince me at that time.”Kean is now ready to make that move, having scored six Serie A goals for Juve last season despite making just 13 appearances and five starts.  The striker has represented Italy at every youth level, and has now scored two goals in three caps for the senior national team. Kean’s father, who was born in the Ivory Coast, believes his son has what it takes to be a success in the Premier League. “I completely trust my son, he will make a big impact in English football with his new team,” Kean said. “He is someone who brings joy wherever he plays. “I’m sure my son will not look bad in England. He will make our family, Italy and Ivory Coast proud.”Man Utd may have missed out on Kean several years ago, but they do appear close to landing another Juventus striker this summer. United have opened discussions over a move for Paulo Dybala in what could potentially be a swap deal with Juve involving Romelu Lukaku.last_img read more

Algerian Army Arrests Moroccan Nationals Calls Them Illegal Immigrants

Rabat – Nine Moroccan nationals were arrested on Saturday in Ouargla, central eastern Algeria, by the Algerian Army.According to a statement issued by the Algerian Ministry of Defense cited by Tout sur l’Algérie news website on Sunday, the Moroccan nationals were labeled “illegal immigrants.”The same source noted that one of them was allegedly carrying a hunting rifle and 307 cartridges. Algerian authorities did not provide any further information concerning the final destination of the Moroccans arrested, whether they were just crossing Algeria or planning to remain within its borders.Another group of Moroccan nationals was arrested on Saturday by the ANP off the coast of Tlemcen, in northwestern Algeria.According to Arabic daily Al Khabar, Algerian authorities announced the arrest of 11 Moroccan nationals onboard a boat coming from Almeria, Spain, where they were reportedly not allowed to enter Spanish territory last Wednesday.The daily revealed that the Moroccan suspects have been charged with “identity theft” for “forgery and use of forged identity and impersonation of others,” as they were allegedly carrying fake Algerian documents at the time of their arrest.Algerian authorities have doubled the number of ANP troops and intelligence personnel at the Morocco-Algeria borderline.“Securing the borders of Algeria with its western neighbor, Morocco, has been strengthened in recent days by the deployment of additional members of security forces, including elements of the National People’s Army,” the Algerian press said on Friday.“The main objective of strengthening monitoring throughout the 1600 km separating Morocco from Algeria is to block the road to potential candidates for jihad in Libya who want to cross the country,” Arabic daily El Watan said.On January 23, the Moroccan Ambassador to Algeria met with the Algerian Minister for Maghreb Affairs Abdelkader Messahel, in order to put an end to the alleged “massive and unusual influx of Moroccans to Algeria.”Nearly 200 Moroccan nationals were turned back on January 24 at the Houari Boumediene Airport in Algiers after being detained on suspicion of wanting to reach Libya to join the so-called Islamic State terrorist organization. read more

Commentary Crew Stadium a great fan experience

The stands erupted in applause when the referee issued a red card violation to Chicago Fire defender Bakary Soumare, ensuring the visitors would be down a man for the final hour of their match against the Columbus Crew Saturday night.Soumare was ejected after his physical and ill-advised tackle in the 29th minute prevented a clear scoring opportunity for Crew forward Jairo Arrieta.The Crew seized momentum early in the contest and afforded the Fire, fellow Eastern Conference playoff hopefuls, few opportunities to score. The Crew’s exceptional ball handling, active passing and stingy defense carried them to a 3-0 victory.The win improved the Crew’s chances of making the playoffs, moving them within two points of fifth-place New England Revolution in the standings. The Crew will play the Revolution in the team’s final two regular season games next month.If they play as well in those games as they did Saturday, Columbus fans will get to see their team enter the postseason for the first time since 2011.After covering Crew games from the press box during the summer for The Lantern, this game marked my first attendance as a fan in the stands. The experience of being immersed in the action was quite different.The aforementioned red card and two other infractions were unexpectedly announced in both English and Spanish. The incessant beat of a drum kit brought and played by Chicago Fire supporters boomed at the south end of the stadium. Fireworks exploded and fast-paced rock music played over the sound system after each goal.Fans audibly surged up whenever the Crew threatened to make a scoring play. The best example of this happened when defender Chad Marshall’s header toward the goal seemed to slow in midair as the stadium eagerly anticipated a chance to cheer. Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson dramatically deflected the ball, however, and the crowd let out a collective sigh.Roving the stadium to absorb more of the atmosphere provided some surprises. The radio play-by-play commentary broadcasted outward to parking lot tailgaters was deafeningly loud in the south gate plaza. Being able to witness live play through the tunnel at field level was an experience that shrank the game down to reality and eliminated the inaccessible glamour often ascribed to professional sports.Halftime brought more surprises, as staff divided the field into four areas and set up miniature practice nets for a stampede of children who streamed onto the field to engage in 10-minute scrimmages. Crew defender Agustín Viana’s speech during a Jumbotron video segment during the break echoed off the opposite side of the stadium.Frankie Hejduk, former Crew player and captain of the 2008 MLS Cup championship team, now works in the franchise’s front office as a promoter of the team in the Columbus community. Saturday was no different, as he hung out with supporters who described themselves as “hooligans” at Crew Stadium’s Upper 90 Club and bought a round of drinks for them.Crew Stadium makes for an enjoyable cultural and game-watching experience, particularly when the home team gives its audience a reason to make the place buzz with excitement. read more

14yearold who died at Hook Head fell 45ft into open water during

first_img 32,724 Views By Sean Murray 14-year-old who died at Hook Head ‘fell 45ft into open water’ during rescue operation Aoife Winterlich died in hospital five days after she and a friend were swept to sea at Hook Head. Mar 8th 2017, 6:24 PM Image: Eamonn Farrell/Photocall Ireland The investigation considers that the winchman made a reasonable decision given his perception of the prevailing circumstances, the imminent risk to life and the consequent time pressure he faced.The investigation acknowledged the effort put in by the winchman to place each person into a rescue strop, and praised the “exceptional effort” made by the male teenager in keeping Winterlich afloat until the helicopter arrived.As the girl was unconscious as she was being lifted, she slipped through the rescue strop and “fell from a height of approximately 45ft into open water of at least 10m depth”.The time between the fall and the winchman reaching her again was around 31 seconds.No evidence of wear and tear, damage or failure of the rescue strop used during the mission.When they contacted the manufacturer of the strop, the maker said that it does not provide guidance on the use of strops to lift unconscious casualties.The manufacturer did say however, that other methods of lifting casualties, such as the reverse lift, are possible but should only be considered in the most extreme situations.Concluding their report, it is recommended that Search and Rescue crews are provided with documented guidance that can be used to “assess and address the operational and medical risks associated with winching casualties, whether conscious or unconscious, by use of a helicopter rescue strop”.Read: 14-year-old girl swept into the sea at Hook Head dies in hospitalRead: Investigation after teenage girl rescued from water at Hook Head was dropped back into the sea THE AIR ACCIDENT Investigation Unit has published its report into the search rescue operation attempted in December 2015 at Hook Head, Co Wexford which later ended in the death of a 14-year-old girl.Aoife Winterlich died in hospital on 10 December 2015, five days after the incident which saw her and a teenage boy swept into the water at Hook Head.A rescue helicopter crew attended the scene and attempted to lift the pair to safety.In their report, the AAIU acknowledge that during the winching operation, the girl slipped from the rescue strop and fell into the water from a height of 45ft.The full report – which can be read here – delves into the circumstances behind the rescue mission, the equipment used, the training that the responders had, and their conduct in the course of the rescue.When the helicopter reached the scene, a winchman was lowered and attempted to rescue the two teenagers by bringing them aboard the helicopter.At this point, the pair had been in the water at least 12 minutes.The report said: “When the winchman entered the water he was faced with the task of recovering a male casualty and a female casualty who was unresponsive.The winchman was of the opinion that if he winched the female casualty to the helicopter first, then the male casualty may have been unable to remain afloat until the winchman returned. http://jrnl.ie/3277616 Short URLcenter_img Wednesday 8 Mar 2017, 6:24 PM 11 Comments Hook Head lighthouse in Co Wexford He considered the location of the casualties, their physical condition and the lack of available local assistance.

Hundreds show up for jobs at Amazon warehouses in US cities

first_imgFALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Hundreds of people showed up Wednesday for a chance to pack and ship products to Amazon customers, as the e-commerce company held a giant job fair at nearly a dozen U.S. warehouses.Although the wages offered will make it hard for some to make ends meet, many of the candidates were excited by the prospect of health insurance and other benefits, as well as advancement opportunities.It’s common for Amazon to ramp up its shipping center staff in August to prepare for holiday shopping. But the magnitude of its current hiring spree underscores Amazon’s growth when traditional retailers are closing stores — and blaming Amazon for a shift to buying goods online.Amazon planned to hire thousands of people on the spot. Nearly 40,000 of the 50,000 packing, sorting and shipping jobs at Amazon will be full time. Most of them will count toward Amazon’s previously announced goal of adding 100,000 full-time workers by the middle of next year.The bad news is that more people are likely to lose jobs in stores than get jobs in warehouses, said Anthony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce.last_img read more

How the suburbs killed a salmon creek and science informs its restoration

first_imgFederally funded environmental science on a geologically doomed creek in Juneau could inform fish-saving restoration on other impaired water bodies.Duck Creek flows past the Nancy Street wetland and under Nancy Street in the Mendenhall Valley on Friday May 20, 2016 in Juneau, Alaska. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation has awarded a watershed coalition a nearly $10,000 grant to collect water quality data to measure the effectiveness of environmental improvements on the creek. (Photo by Rashah McChesney, KTOO – Juneau)Alaska’s Department of Environmental Conservation has announced nearly $300,000 in grants to improve water quality in some of the state’s most damaged watersheds, including the orange-tinted Duck Creek.The 4-acre Nancy Street wetland, much like the tiny creek that meanders through it, could be serene and full of wildlife if it weren’t bordered by busy suburban streets and houses.As it is, the bird calling and chitter of the occasional ground squirrel are consistently drowned out by traffic from the road to the west and noise from the neighborhood that runs along the east end of the wetland. Similarly, Duck Creek has suffered a loss of fish habitat and a decline in water quality from at least 50 years of that same type of development in Juneau’s Mendenhall Valley.Juneau residents might recognize it as the creek with an odd orange tint, a symptom of iron-rich groundwater. As neighborhoods and commercial developments sprung up in the valley, the creek has been diverted into ditches and culverts making it even harder to recognize as a flowing water body.Twenty-two years ago, the state put Duck Creek on its impaired water bodies list. At the time, it was full of fecal coliform bacteria, metals and debris. By 2001, its chum salmon run – historically up to 10,000 fish – was extinct. Its coho salmon run was fewer than 20 fish and its trout fishing, closed. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has yet to reopen fishing on the creek.The Nancy Street wetland habitat was one project among a long list including culvert maintenance and upgrades, revegetation of stream banks, sediment removal and stream cleanup. Next spring, scientists will begin sampling the creek’s water quality in the wetlands to see if the bio-filtering project is improving the watershed.Amy Sumner, a biologist and project manager with the Juneau Watershed Partnership said the effort will be coordinated with the University of Alaska Southeast and train budding student biologists in water quality assessment.“We’re hoping to see that as the water filters through the wetland the water quality is improving.”Funding for the student position and testing of the water samples will come from a $10,000 Alaska Clean Water Action grant.  The state’s Department of Environmental Conservation announced nearly $300,000 in grant funds this year for water bodies it said are in the greatest need of protection and restoration.In Southeast Alaska, the projects include Juneau’s Nancy Street wetlands assessment, bacteria monitoring on a heavily used beach in Petersburg, and plant-filled ditches in Haines designed to filter snowmelt runoff before it mixes with a salmon stream.Statewide, projects include an ongoing campaign to stop people from feeding ducks and other waterfowl in a popular midtown park in Anchorage, copper and zinc monitoring on the Kenai River, a beach monitoring project in Nome and a program to educate miners near Fairbanks on the impacts of turbidity and sediment on fish.Since 2005, the state has awarded nearly $5.4 million to fund things like municipal stormwater master plans, fish passage assessments, habitat monitoring, boating education, and even septic system education for homeowners.Cindy Gilder, a program manager at the Department of Environmental Conservation, said the grant funds come through the Environmental Protection Agency. The program has been around for decades.Like Duck Creek, the most troubled watersheds in Alaska are in urban areas, or at least they’re the ones that get the most grant funding. Gilder said similar programs in other states are concentrated in rural areas, where agricultural runoff is often a culprit in watershed pollution.If I looked back over the history of the grants, there’s probably, usually a grant in Anchorage, maybe in Fairbanks, in Juneau, there’s usually in Mat Su, something down the Kenai.  Because a lot of non-point source pollution, it’s the non-permitted stuff. It’s you and I driving our cars and my car leaking oil or my stepping on the brake pads all the time.”On Duck Creek, nearly $57,000 has come through the grant program to help restore the watershed.With all the restoration in Juneau, we have not been very good about following up with water quality monitoring to see if these efforts are actually being effective. So that’s what this project is trying to accomplish. We’re going to test above the wetland, inside the wetland area and then at the wetland outlet to see if water quality is being improved as the water filters through that wetland.”In the end, it’s probably too late for the dwindling numbers of fish who migrate in and out of Duck Creek. The Mendenhall Glacier seems to be finishing off what decades of dumping, development and diversions started.“So as the glacier retreats our land is rebounding and that is causing Duck Creek to disconnect with some of its groundwater source that provides its base flow. So a lot of times Duck Creek will dewater and it’ll look like a dry streambed so that is providing some problems for fish getting upstream and because of that interaction between the uplift and the dewatering, Duck Creek is really no longer able to provide viable fish habitat.”Sumner said it’s not clear how long it will take for the creek to become completely uninhabitable. But the process of restoring its water quality, and monitoring which projects were the most effective, can inform rehabilitation projects on other impaired watersheds.last_img read more

Gujarat Government Favoured Reliance and Adani Reveal CAG Reports

They also alleged that some villagers might have been involved in an unholy nexus with the poachers. Some of the forest department is baffled to see the villagers are extending helping hands to the poachers.On the contrary the villagers residing in the buffer areas of the forest help the forest department to save the wildlife. It is also suspected that the trap which was found lying near the tiger’s body might have been used as a bait by the poachers to catch deer. A detailed probe has been initiated in this regard.last_img read more

The Discovery IGS 740 is the first of this kind of mobile angiography system in the industry to receive FDA approval.This new imaging system puts interventional radiologists at the center of their procedures. The rail-free design allows healthcare professionals ample access to the patient while freeing clinical teams from the constraints of fixed ceiling-mounted system rails. Its wide bore C-arm and dedicated arm-imaging positions create ease in imaging the anatomy of interest and full patient access from the left or right. A rotating laser continuously scans the room so the system knows where it is at all times.By eliminating the ceiling rails, installation is simplified for flexibility in designing the room and positioning ceiling-mounted ancillaries (monitors, radshields, lights) where healthcare professionals need them.The Discovery IGS 740 is equipped with two customizable parking positions to accommodate multiple room sizes and shapes. The 41×41-cm detector enables imaging of large organs, such as the liver and simultaneous coverage of both legs. The wide-bore C-arm helps interventional radiologists image large patients and conveniently perform off centered 3-D acquisitions. In addition, the system comes equipped with more than 20 advanced applications, such as FlightPlan for Liver, which helps clinicians identify tumor-feeding vessels in a few clicks, and be selective during liver embolizations.For more information: newsroom.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | May 07, 2014 FDA Clears GE’s Discovery IGS 740 Mobile Angiography System System designed to meet needs of interventional radiology without limits of fixed-base systems News | CT Angiography (CTA) | July 11, 2019 Mednax National Cardiac Centers of Excellence Program Highlighted at SCCT 2019 Mednax Inc. and Mednax Radiology Solutions announced that Chief Medical Officer Ricardo C.

Number two is if it’s an essential national service, and number three is if it is in an environment where other sovereigns are engaging in direct competition to the massive disadvantage of an Australian business, then you need to take that into account,’’ Abbott Government Treasurer, Joe Hockey said.  In talking about how Qantas needs to change its business model, Joyce said that Qantas needs to continue to decerease its unit costs as well as invest in fuel efficient aircraft and mentioned that there would be more unpopular cuts going ahead while restrictions on the airline had to be removed.  “The Qantas Sale Act limits our financial options, it adds cost to our business, and it influences our actions as a publicly listed company,” Joyce said. Joyce argued that Qantas passengers are still the biggest supporters of local tourism in Australia, spending AUD $28 billion in local economies. UPDATE: The Treasurer Joe Hockey said today that he inclined to give Qantas goverment assistance, given because its situation meets four preconditions: center_img The Abbott Government has reiterated that it wants to help Qantas make a level playing field which may take the form of debt guarantee or repeal of some or parts of the Qantas Sales Act.  Joyce outlined three future challenges for Qantas – the role of Qantas as the national carrier, change in how Qantas does business and the competitive environment in aviation.  Source = ETB News: T.N.
