Mbappe turned down Arsenal to seal PSG switch

admin no comments

first_imgMbappe at PSGLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe says he rejected an approach from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in favour of moving to the French giants.Mbappe spoke with Wenger over the possibility of leaving Monaco to join the Gunners, but instead he decided to return to the French capital.The 18-year-old France international striker grew up in Paris, playing for Monaco before joining PSG on loan last week, with a deal in place for him to make the move permanent next year for a reported fee of £166 million ($215 million, 180 million euros).Mbappe has now revealed Arsenal’s interest, telling the Daily Telegraph: “Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach.“He has a great reputation here in France, he’s well-respected and knows how to develop young players. This was a real option for me. But, of course, Paris St Germain was the main option.” Mbappe opted to work under PSG coach Unai Emery in a front line also featuring £200 million world record signing Neymar, who made his blockbuster move from Barcelona in August.“We weighed up the advantages and disadvantages of all the clubs but my family told me it had to be my decision and one I needed to make,” Mbappe said.“It also had to be a long-term decision. So it was up to me and I decided to come here in order to develop.” Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgThe Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating, after a mannequin wearing a New York Police Department uniform and a pig mask was found hanging from an I-95 overpass there on Saturday morning.The call came in as a possible suicide by hanging, according to the sheriff’s office.Crime scene detectives are processing the scene and the mannequin for DNA.“Our goal at this point is to identify persons of interest for the sake of, most importantly, the members of our community and for officer safety,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “We are thankful that this was not a real person.” In addition, Sheriff Mike Williams released the following statement regarding the incident:“The incident that occurred this morning depicting the mock lynching of a mannequin dressed in what appeared to be the uniform of a law enforcement officer is extremely disturbing.Both the tactics and props used were a deliberate attempt to exasperate an anti-police sentiment and drive a divide in our community.This incident was carried out by people wanting to undermine our dedicated efforts to keep our city safe.Too many good citizens are working with us to keep our community safe through active partnerships, and frank conversations about the challenges we all face.  This type of act will not be tolerated by our agency or our community, and we will work together to hold those responsible accountable.”Anyone with information is encouraged to contact CrimeStoppers at (866) 845-TIPS.last_img read more

first_imgIn a tight spot in the sixth inning, he kept a cool head, striking out Rickie Weeks and Cody Ransom before departing. The Pirates hung on to win 6-5.“It was a big moment for my team in the sixth and I was able to bump my chest and slow myself down and get out of that inning because I wasn’t very sharp today,” McDonald said.McDonald gave up a run for the first time after 13 scoreless innings, ending the longest scoreless run by a Pirates pitcher this season.He finished with eight strikeouts won for the third time in four starts. McDonald (5-2) held the Brewers to four hits and a walk, and only one of the three runs he allowed was earned.“He didn’t have his best stuff today but he did have, and he has for much of the season, an extremely good downhill angle on his fastball.” Hurdle “It was good for him to finish.”Joel Hanrahan pitched a shaky ninth for his 14th save of the season.Clint Barmes hit a solo shot off John Axford in the ninth that extended the Pirates’ lead to 6-4.The Pirates took two out of three in the series for their first winning series in Milwaukee since April 2010.“It’s good to get a series win but to make it anything more than that, I’m not going to be jumping around, dancing in the streets,” Hurdle said. “We expect to win series when we go on the road, just like we do at home. We know the history and it is nice to do it, I get that.”The Brewers are 59-21 against the Pirates since 2007.McDonald led off the fifth inning with a single, and scored on McCutchen’s homer. Jones later made it 4-2 Pirates by homering for the second day in a row.Rod Barajas added a solo homer in the top of the sixth.Brewers starter Michael Fiers (1-1) gave up four runs and eight hits with eight strikeouts and a walk in five innings in his second big league start.

first_imgThird, and first woman, was Jacqueline Skands, who reached the flagpole in a time of 38 minutes.A total of 51 participants competed in the race, with half the runners finishing a Pulpit Rock — the halfway spot in the race.The race, which raised $910, was a fundraiser for the Friends of Pulpit Rock Committee.“The money will be used to improve the trail,” said Cody Abbey of Maverick Fitness, one of the many sponsors of the race.Others included Gerick Cycle, Vince Devitos Shoes and Lakeside Physiotherapy.“(Funds) will be used to take out some of the really steep sections — making (Pulpit Rock Trails) more accessible to everyone,” Abby explained.“(And) to expand the trails at the top and perform further maintenance including improving conditions to CBC tower (at the top of Elephant Mountain),” Abbey adds.Abbey said donations are still being accepted at Vince DeVito’s Shoes at 411 Hall Street in Nelson until Wednesday. Most racers have difficulty running on flat ground.However, 16-year-old Keiran Marchand found the very steep hills of Elephant Mountain just fine as the Nelsonite captured top honours in the First Annual Vince DeVito’s Fun Run and Hike Sunday north of the Heritage City.Marchand, who runs for the L.V.

Airport screening under fire from auditor

admin no comments

first_imgPeople could be weighed when screened. Australian authorities are unable to prove that airline passenger screening in the country is effective or that airport screening authorities fully comply with the rules, a new report has found.The report by the Australian National Audit Office found that the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development was unable to provide the assurances because of poor data collection and inadequate records. While the Australian report stopped short of concluding the nation’s airport screening did not work, it found problems with the way the department managed the process and highlighted failures to implement the recommendations of “successive reviews’’.The embarrassing conclusions come after the US Transportation Security Administration was last year left red-faced after screeners failed to detect weapons and explosives in 67 of 70 undercover tests conducted by teams from the Department of Homeland Security.The Australian department does not employ security screeners directly but leaves day-to-day operations to airport operators and screening authorities.It sets the regulatory framework and establishes minimum standards for passenger screening as well as a compliance program for security controlled airports.“However, the department is unable to provide assurance that passenger screening is effective, or to what extent screening authorities comply with the regulations, due to poor data and inadequate records,’’ the report said.“The department does not have meaningful passenger screening performance targets or enforcement strategies and does not direct resources to areas with a higher risk of non-compliance.’’The ANAO found the regulatory framework covering screening was sound but that the department had failed to address a number of systemic issues hampering its ability to implement a risk-based regime and provide the passenger screening assurance. “The need to develop performance measures, analyse compliance data, implement an enforcement policy and provide adequate training have been identified in successive reviews but solutions are yet to be delivered,’’ it said.Compliance activities run by the department include audits, inspections and tests aimed at assessing the effectiveness of aviation security and passenger screening.But the ANAO found the compliance program did not look at the levels at which individual airport operators or screening authorities performed.It also did not take into account non-compliance trends and this meant staff were not effectively deployed to areas that may require additional support or monitoring.There was also no process for escalating serious or systemic non-compliance, and no guidance on available sanctions when operators did not obey the rules.“Clear guidance on available enforcement options that are proportionate to the risks, and guidance on their application, would assist in the management of non-compliance,’’ the report said.The department agreed to a series of recommendations put by the ANAO to improve its data collection and oversight and noted a 2015 review had prompted it to invest in “the broad reform of its transport security regulatory operations”.It said the reform program included a redesign of the transport security operating model, and improvements to the regulatory management system.“The reform program will drive key changes to the way the department regulates domestic passenger screening,’’ it said.On its inability to show the effectiveness of passenger screening, the department said initiatives underway to improve the quality of data and record keeping should be completed early next year.Transport Minister Darren Chester welcomed the ANAO report and said its recommendations would help the government to further strengthen and refine aviation security.  “Australia has a comprehensive and strong aviation security system in place and keeping the public safe and secure remains our highest priority,’’ Chester said.“As the security environment continues to change and evolve, the Government works closely with the aviation industry, intelligence and law enforcement agencies to continually monitor and update this system. ‘’Chester listed a number of initiatives on which the Australian government was working to reinforce aviation security.These included strengthening Australia’s aviation security identity card scheme. Including working towards the introduction of biometric identification, boosting airside security and improving air cargo security.It was also working with industry to test new equipment and procedures that could improve the efficiency and effectiveness of aviation security measures.“Following major events, such as the recent attacks in Brussels and Istanbul, we are working closely with international partners to analyse what happened and apply lessons learned to our aviation sector,’’ he said.last_img read more

Imminent House vote on TPA

admin no comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the U.S. House soon to take up Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation, NPPC announced it would “key vote” lawmakers’ votes on the measure, which is vital to finalizing free trade agreements. (The Senate passed TPA May 23.)Periodically, NPPC scores members of Congress on their votes on issues and legislation that are of paramount importance to the livelihoods of America’s pork producers. The scores then are made public so voters have the information when determining the candidate of their choice in the next election. TPA defines U.S. negotiating objectives and priorities for trade agreements and establishes consultation and notification requirements for the president to follow throughout the negotiation process. Once trade negotiators finalize a deal, Congress gets to review it and vote yes or no – without amendments – on it.Congress has granted TPA to every president since 1974, with the most recent law being approved in August 2002 and expiring June 30, 2007. The immediate need for TPA is for concluding the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations among the United States and 11 Pacific Rim countries. According to Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes, the TPP deal would be the most significant commercial opportunity ever for U.S. pork producers, generating more than 10,000 pork industry jobs. Failure to pass TPA, which effectively would be a vote against TPP, would send a signal to the world that the United States is turning its back on the Asia-Pacific region — the fastest growing area in the world — and allow other countries to write the rules for international trade, according to NPPC, which is leading the charge to get TPA approved.last_img read more

Zika spread by sex too says Scientist

first_img CDC says: Men spread Zika through Sex Recommended for you Related Items:Mosquitoes, sex, zika virus Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 11 Jan 2015 – The Jamaica Observer is reporting that a German virologist believes the Zika virus, a mosquito-borne virus which is now being detected in the Caribbean can be sexually transmitted. Bernhard-Nocht is from the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg and in a 2015 medical report, the virologist suggests that the mosquito borne virus is detected in semen. It is the second time this pronouncement has come following research; the first was in 2008 when an American scientist contracted Zika Virus while in Senegal; a few days after returning home to Colorado, his wife was found with Zika. One view is that while Zika can be spread through sexual intercourse, which would also make it’s spread harder to control, it is likely this would NOT take over as the main route of transmission. Canada, three days ago, issued a warning to travelers about Zika, which has no vaccine. Turks and Caicos remains Zika free.

An indictment brought Tuesday adds a charge of money laundering conspiracy against the couple and 14 other parents.Amy and Gregory Colburn, a California couple accused of paying $25,000 to cheat on their son’s SAT, were indicted on the money laundering and mail fraud conspiracy charges last month.The parents are accused of paying an admissions consultant, Rick Singer, to cheat on their children’s college entrance exams and get their children admitted as athletic recruits at such elite schools as Georgetown and Yale.Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played the sport.They appeared in Boston federal court briefly last week and were not asked to enter a plea. They have not publicly addressed the allegations against them.Other parents indicted on the new charge Tuesday include Michelle Janavs, whose family developed the microwave snack line Hot Pockets before selling their company, and William McGlashan, who co-founded an investment fund with U2’s Bono in 2017.Huffman, the 56-year-old Emmy-winner who stared in ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” was accused of paying $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to have a proctor correct the answers on her daughter’s SAT. She and the 12 other parents agreed to plead guilty Monday to a single charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.Prosecutors say they will seek a prison sentence that’s on the low end of between four and 10 months for Huffman.In her first public comments since her arrest, Huffman took responsibility for her actions and said she would accept the consequences.“My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty,” she said after her plea deal was announced. last_img read more
