Virat Kohli’s team only enjoying coffee in English conditions: Sandip Patil

first_imgFormer Indian chief selector Sandip Patil has lashed out at Virat Kohli’s team for not making good use of their time in England. India are 0-2 down in the five-Test series after losing at Edgbaston and Lord’s.India reached England on June 23 after coach Ravi Shastri lamented the lack of preparation time following the Test series defeat in South Africa earlier this year. Consequently, the limited-overs series (three T20Is and three ODIs) were scheduled before the Test matches.’But surprisingly, the Indian team did not train or practice after the ODI series, instead choosing to take a five-day vacation before playing their only warm-up match. In fact, the warm-up game was also reduced from a four-day affair to a three-day match because of the heat.In the first Test in Birmingham, India’s batsmen with the exception of skipper Virat Kohli, were found out. At Lord’s, the Indians once again had no answer to the swing of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. The lack of practice showed and the likes of Murali Vijau, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara were all at sea.Also read – Are India’s Test batsmen really good enough for overseas success?Patil wondered why the Indian team chose to rest instead of training hard for an important Test series. And he took a dig at Kohli, who had in his pre-departure press conference rather lightly said he would enjoy the coffee in England.”We all clearly remember captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri’s joint press conference before leaving for the tour of England earlier this summer. One bold statement stood out, “We have enough days to acclimatise in England and we are going to enjoy coffee,” Patil wrote in his column for The Quint. “Seeing the performance of the Indian team in the first two Tests so far, the team really seems to have taken their skipper’s statement seriously – they are truly only enjoying the coffee in English conditions.”Also read – Humiliation at Lord’s: Gut-wrenching defeat should come as no surpriseadvertisement KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya have played both the Test matches for India so far (@klrahul 11 Photo) India were handed their first-ever innings defeat under Virat Kohli at Lord’s (@hardikpandya7 Photo) Kuldeep Yadav played the second Test at Lord’s but failed to take a single wicket (kuldeep_18 Photo)Also read – Never give up on us: Virat Kohli turns emotional after Lord’s humiliationSeveral former Indian cricketers had stressed on the need to practice properly before the Test series. The red ball in England tends to swing and that is no mystery. Instead of practicing, Indian cricketers were seen going out for nice walks and indeed enjoying the English coffee.Patil felt Kohli’s statement (on the coffee) was irresponsible.”In earlier days, it was grilled in our minds that we needed to watch, improve, practise hard, follow the senior players, learn from them and take their advice. But instead of taking the advice of players who have been on multiple tours of England, and have succeeded, Virat Kohli’s team seems happy to be enjoying the country’s coffee.Also read – The Ravi Shastri irony: Crisis man in 2014, facing the heat in 2018″In fact, if I look at the Indian captains who toured England, Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Azhar, none of them ever made such an irresponsible comment on the eve of such an important tour,” Patil wrote.On Monday, Gavaskar had slammed the Indian team for not choosing to stay behind in London instead of going down to Nottingham and start practicing for the third Test.Also read – India coach Ravi Shastri under BCCI COA scanner after Lord’s Test debacle”But clearly as we have seen from the start of the ODI series, they are in love with London. You cannot get practice facilities in London as easily as you would in Nottingham – I hope they practice from Tuesday. And there should be no optional practice. Everybody needs to get down to practice There’s no such thing as optional practice when you are 0-2 down,” Gavaskar had told India Todaylast_img read more

Brian Hartline: “Is (Terrelle Pryor) A No. 1 WR? God, I Hope Not”

Coastal Carolina DE Transfer Has Flipped His Commitment

first_img https://twitter.com/jgunter94/status/1100425457261035521Last season, Gunter was a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection as he compiled 49 tackles (14 for loss) and five sacks. He added five quarterback hurries and a forced fumble as well.Gunter appeared in 24 games for the Chanticleers over the last two seasons, making 75 total tackles.Due to NCAA rules, Gunter is expected to sit out the 2019 season and resume playing in 2020. He has three seasons to play two.However, he could apply for a hardship waiver, that if approved, would allow him to compete immediately for the Wolfpack in 2019.

That’s even the case when it comes to transfers.Coastal Carolina defensive end Jeffrey Gunter visited Syracuse earlier this month. Gunter later committed to the Orange, and even signed a financial aid agreement, which binds the school to him but does not bind him to the program.Now, Gunter has changed his mind. He won’t be heading to Syracuse, and will instead continue his career at NC State.Gunter announced his decision on Twitter this morning.last_img read more

Annonce dun système en ligne pour signaler les cas dintimidation

first_imgLa Province facilite les choses pour les élèves victimes d’intimidation et elle les aide à obtenir du soutien plus rapidement grâce à un système en ligne unique de signalement des situations d’intimidation et de cyberintimidation. La ministre de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance, Ramona Jennex, a annoncé le système lors de la conférence sur la lutte contre l’intimidation « Élevons la voix » aujourd’hui, 16 août, à Halifax. « Nous savons que certains jeunes ne signalent pas l’intimidation parce qu’ils ont peur que la situation empire, indique Mme Jennex. Cette nouvelle option aidera les élèves victimes de comportements intimidateurs ou qui en sont témoins dans les écoles à les signaler anonymement. » Le système en ligne, un des deux seuls systèmes du genre utilisés au Canada, a été conçu spécialement pour répondre aux besoins du système d’éducation de la Province. Une personne victime d’intimidation ou qui en est témoin peut remplir un formulaire en ligne et l’information sera automatiquement envoyée au directeur de l’école. Le formulaire se trouvera dans les sites Web des conseils scolaires et à l’adresse www.antibullying.novascotia.ca. « Ce site en ligne pour signaler les cas d’intimidation sera un bon outil pour les enfants qui voudront signaler des situations d’intimidation de façon sûre et anonyme, de dire Erin Donovan, un parent de Mahone Bay. Les directeurs d’écoles peuvent utiliser l’information pour créer un environnement scolaire plus sûr et les élèves socialement responsables peuvent signaler les cas d’intimidation sans redouter les conséquences de leurs actes. » « Il arrive souvent que les directeurs d’écoles et les administrateurs scolaires entendent parler de comportements intimidateurs, parfois par les rumeurs ou par les médias, et ce après que la situation s’est aggravée, ajoute Mary Jess MacDonald, présidente du Strait Regional School Board. Nous avons hâte d’utiliser un outil qui encouragera le signalement et donnera aux directeurs l’information nécessaire pour remédier aux comportements intimidateurs. » Le système sera en place le mois prochain.last_img read more

Health Canada approves new supervised consumption sites in BC and Montreal

first_imgOTTAWA – Health Canada has approved plans to create four new supervised consumption sites in British Columbia and Quebec, but some health officials say the approvals fall short of meeting the needs in communities devastated by overdose deaths.A statement from Health Minister Jane Philpott on Friday said the approval of the sites is one step in combating the ongoing illicit opioid “overdose epidemic” gripping the country.The sites allow people to use illicit drugs under the supervision of a medical professional in case they overdose.But at a conference in Vancouver, health officials said restrictions mean only people who inject drugs can receive supervision, not those who use drugs in other forms.“From a medical health and public health perspective, all modes of consumption can be dangerous and should be supervised, so it’s incomprehensible to me that there would currently be this restriction,” said Dr. Perry Kendall, B.C.’s chief provincial health officer.Two of the new sites are in Surrey, B.C., one is in Vancouver and a mobile consumption site has been approved to operate in Montreal.Vancouver Coastal Health chief medical health officer Dr. Patricia Daly said existing overdose prevention sites support people who ingest drugs in many forms, including orally.“When we open our doors with the Health Canada exemption, it will be difficult to deny people the ability to consume drugs in the way that they’re used to,” she said.“Ultimately, I think we have to realize our crisis here is not just among people who inject drugs.”Kendall said he suspects the restriction is due to a lack of published documentation on the effectiveness of supervised consumption for drugs that are ingested in ways other than by injection.But he said there is enough evidence through the overdose prevention sites that have operated in B.C. since December to prove it saves lives.“We’ve reversed hundreds of overdoses and there’s never been a death,” he said.B.C. has been the epicentre of the overdose crisis, where over 1,200 people have died between the start of 2016 to the end of March this year. The provincial coroner said many of the deaths have been caused by fentanyl, a powerful opioid.Provincial health officials did acknowledge that the approvals are a step in the right direction.In a news release, Fraser Health chief medical health officer Dr. Victoria Lee said the exemption “will allow us to take a significant step forward in engaging with this population.”Quebec’s Public Health Minister Lucie Charlebois also issued a statement welcoming the approval of the Montreal mobile site.“This demonstrates that Quebec is a leader in preventative health care and drug-related harm reduction, and that we are setting an example for other communities that will follow suit in this area,” her release said in French.Health Canada said the mobile site in Montreal is the first of its kind to be approved in Canada, and will provide a “geographically flexible” service to clients.The mobile site is supposed to provide additional services that compliment three fixed sites that were approved by Health Canada in February.Canada’s two existing supervised consumption sites are both located in Vancouver.Health Canada said evidence shows supervised consumption sites save lives and decrease the transmission of disease without increasing drug use or crime in the surrounding area.— By Linda Givetash in Vancouver.last_img read more

Maudie wins leading seven trophies at Canadian Screen Awards

first_imgTORONTO – “Maudie,” starring recent Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins as real-life Nova Scotia folk artist Maud Lewis and Ethan Hawke as her fish peddler husband, took a leading seven film trophies on Sunday as light-hearted Canuck jokes mixed with politically charged speeches at the Canadian Screen Awards.The Canada-Ireland co-production won best picture as well as best supporting actor for Hawke and best actress for Hawkins, who was recently nominated for an Oscar for her starring turn in the Ontario-shot, Academy Award-winning film “The Shape of Water.”“Maudie”‘s other wins included best direction for Aisling Walsh and best original screenplay for Sherry White.The Newfoundland and Labrador-shot drama details Lewis’s perseverance through juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, poverty and ill treatment from her community and loved ones to become an internationally acclaimed painter.“Because ‘Maudie’ came out like a year earlier than ‘The Shape of Water,’ there was a lot of … really early Oscar buzz around her performance in (‘Maudie’) and then ‘The Shape of Water’ came in and kind of stole that buzz,” White said with a laugh backstage.“Because you can’t be nominated for two (Oscars), so that kind of stole our thunder, but that’s OK.”Another east coast story took a top honour on the TV side.CBC/Netflix’s “Anne,” featuring the plucky Prince Edward Island heroine from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, was named best drama series for creators Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier.Cast member R. H. Thomson landed a supporting-actor trophy earlier in the week, resulting in just two wins for the series that had a leading 13 nominations.The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television puts on the Canadian Screen Awards, which handed out awards in 132 categories that also included television and digital media. The bulk of the trophies were handed out earlier in the week. Sunday’s show aired from Toronto’s Sony Centre of Performing Arts on CBCCo-hosts Jonny Harris and Emma Hunter offered light-hearted banter about Canada that was balanced out by onstage remarks from attendees about diversity, inclusion and gender inclusion onscreen and off.“I think a show like ‘Kim’s Convenience’ is proof that representation matters,” said Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who won an acting trophy for “Kim’s Convenience,” which also won best comedy series.“When you give people a voice, other people start listening, and when people start listening, things start to change — and we need change, we need to affect change.”The phrase “representation matters” was also repeated by Eritrea-born actor Nabil Rajo, who won an award for the Montreal car-jacking drama film “Boost,” and Elise Bauman, star of the web series “Carmilla” who got the Cogeco Fund Audience Choice Award.Other big film winners at Sunday’s show included the Oscar-nominated animated drama “The Breadwinner,” which won four trophies, including best adapted screenplay for Anita Doron. Nora Twomey directed the Canadian co-production, which is based on homegrown author Deborah Ellis’s children’s novel about a young girl who helps her family in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.“I think her courage and compassion started it all,” Doran said backstage of Ellis, who based her book on the testimony of Afghan women she spoke with in refugee camps in Pakistan.“Everybody on the team was making the same film with the same intention — to be authentic, to tell the truth and to tell the truth of this girl.”Also netting four awards was “Hochelaga, Land of Souls,” which was Canada’s pick for the best foreign-language film category at this year’s Oscars but ultimately didn’t make the short list. Written and directed by Quebec’s Francois Girard, the French-language drama looks at Montreal’s history through an archeological dig after a sinkhole opens up under a stadium in Montreal.The star-packed Sundance Film Festival hit “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” by Catherine Bainbridge, about Indigenous musicians who have shaped popular music, got three nods including best feature length documentary.Best limited series or program went to CBC-TV’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel “Alias Grace.” Sarah Gadon was also honoured for her starring turn as an Irish maid who was convicted of murder in Upper Canada in 1843 and exonerated decades later.“Cardinal” star Billy Campbell won best lead actor, while “Baroness von Sketch Show” was honoured for its ensemble performance.Other acting honours went to Catherine O’Hara of CBC’s riches-to-rags comedy “Schitt’s Creek,” Alexander Ludwig of the History series “Vikings,” Tatiana Maslany of the Space sci-fi series “Orphan Black,” and Bahar Nouhian of the Tehran teen drama film “Ava.”Efforts to eradicate sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry was a topic on the red carpet as attendees wore pins for the #AfterMeToo group, which recently partnered with the Canadian Women’s Foundation to establish a fund for sexual violence support services.Atwood, who got the Academy Board of Directors’ Tribute at the show, said she’s supporting the #AfterMeToo fund by donating herself and giving the proceeds from two events she’s doing in April.Atwood and CBC News anchor Peter Mansbridge were among nine recipients of a special award at the show.Mansbridge, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award, used his speech to tout the importance of telling the truth and being transparent in an era of fake news.“I strongly believe that truth is under attack and it’s not under attack by just one person in one country, it spreads across borders,” Mansbridge said later backstage.“We’re at a very important point here in this issue and I think we have to stand up for ourselves and stand up for each other, because there’s a lot at stake on this.”last_img read more

UN welcomes accord signed between Sudan and Darfur rebel group

14 July 2011The head of the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force in Darfur has welcomed the agreement signed today between the Sudanese Government and the rebel Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM), calling it a “significant step forward” in efforts to resolve the conflict. The protocol agreement signed in the Qatari capital, Doha, indicates a commitment on the part of the Government and the LJM to the draft document that will form the basis of a permanent ceasefire and a comprehensive peace agreement to end the fighting that began eight years ago.“We are gathered here to witness and extend support to the building of a strong foundation for an inclusive and comprehensive resolution to the conflict,” Ibrahim Gambari, the head of the UN-AU mission (UNAMID), told the gathering.Mr. Gambari, who is the acting Joint Chief Mediator, urged the other armed movements of Darfur to sign up to the draft document, according to a news release issued by UNAMID. He also said that the mission was ready to prepare the ground for an internal political dialogue to involve the people of Darfur in any peace agreement achieved.“The challenge remains to determine how best to engage and persuade ‘hold-out’ groups that a military solution to the Darfur conflict is not the way to go, while encouraging them to make every effort to participate in a comprehensive peace agreement as soon as possible,” he stated. The gathering in Doha brought together several African heads of State, officials from the AU, League of Arab States and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, as well as representatives of Darfur’s civil society.An estimated 300,000 people have been killed since the conflict between rebels, Government forces and allied militiamen erupted in Darfur in 2003 and about 2.7 million others have had to flee their homes. Both sides have been accused of numerous human rights abuses. read more

Tunisia on eve of information summit UN rights expert calls for prisoner

“I have also been alarmed by the polarization of opinions and the lack of dialogue with the Press, two elements which could seriously jeopardize the progress of media freedom in the country,” the Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression of the UN Commission on Human Rights, Ambeyi Ligabo, said in a statement, calling on the Government to allow the full exercise of those rights.He noted that recent reported violations included the banning of a ‘journalists’ union congress, the imprisonment of a lawyer for publishing controversial articles and “smear campaigns” against human rights activists, particularly in conjunction with their right to freedom of expression and of association. Mr. Ligabo called on the Government to take effective measures for the promotion of a real pluralism, including action related to the increase of media freedom in the country and to guarantee full access to information for media professionals as well as for the ordinary citizen, in order to expand transparency and public awareness.He also urged it to ensure that all media workers can exercise their profession without any impediment and restriction and to adopt legislation for the decriminalization of defamation and related offences, including norms regarding fair criteria of proportionality in imposing fines.The final phase of the World Summit is to be held in Tunis from 16 to 18 November and will be marked by “a crucial effort to ensure a better future for less developed societies through the exploitation of Internet resources,” Mr. Ligabo noted. “Agreements on Internet governance and its financing will be at the core of decisive discussions and could initiate a new era for freedom of opinion and expression through enhanced dissemination and availability of information,” he added.The Summit’s first phase was held in Geneva in 2003. read more

FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Tuesday April 5, 2016 has defended his reputation after a Champions League broadcasting contract he signed was leaked from a Panama-based law firm’s database. (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara, File) LONDON – The Latest on the publication by a coalition of media outlets of an investigation into offshore financial dealings by the rich and famous (all times local):3:25 a.m.Panama’s government is creating an international committee of experts to recommend ways to boost transparency in the Central American country’s offshore financial industry.President Juan Carlos Varela is trying to shore up confidence in his nation’s financial industry after the leaking of 11.5 million documents from a prominent Panama-based law firm that helped create shell companies for the world’s rich and famous.The Panamanian leader said Wednesday that the committee’s findings will be shared with other nations so joint action can be taken to boost transparency in legal and financial centres worldwide.As he takes steps to strengthen controls, Varela is defending Panama against what he calls a “media attack” by wealthy nations that he says are ignoring their own deficiencies and unfairly stigmatizing Panama.___1 a.m.Mexican tax authorities say they are investigating 33 citizens of Mexico whose names are mentioned in documents in the “Panama Papers” leak.Taxe authority head Aristoteles Nunez told Radio Formula on Wednesday that some of those mentioned in the documents were already subjects of investigations. He refused to identify those people.Nunez says authorities are looking at whether the income that contributed to any offshore account was reported in tax returns. If the income wasn’t reported, the owners could avoid fines by reporting the assets and returning the money to Mexico, as long as it was legal in origin.Prosecutors in El Salvador also are investigating citizens mentioned in the “Panama Papers.” Chief prosecutor Douglas Melendez did not identify any of the Salvadorans and stressed that offshore accounts are not necessarily illegal.9:20 p.m.Brazil’s UOL news portal says an offshore company created by Roberto Carlos, one of the country’s most popular singers, appears in the files of the Panamanian law firm with international offices that provide offshore financial services.The release earlier this week of the Mossack Fonseca documents on offshore financial dealings of wealthy, famous and powerful people around the world has raised questions over the widespread use of such tactics to avoid taxes and skirt financial oversight.Blogger Fernando Rodrigues said Wednesday on UOL that Carlos is one of the shareholders of Happy Song, an offshore company created in 2011 to manage his career.Carlos’ press office told UOL that the company is duly registered with Brazilian tax authorities and the country’s Central Bank.___6:30 p.m.FIFA’s ethics committee says Uruguayan lawyer Juan Pedro Damiani has resigned as a member of its judging panel while under investigation.Damiani’s links to disgraced former FIFA vice-president Eugenio Figueredo are being investigated by FIFA ethics prosecutors after he was identified on Sunday in a vast leak of data from a Panama law firm specializing in offshore accounts.Damiani did not tell the FIFA ethics committee until March that he had a “business relationship” with Figueredo, a fellow Uruguayan who was arrested in Zurich last May.Figueredo was indicted by American federal prosecutors and later extradited to Uruguay. He pleaded guilty to fraud and money laundering charges and acknowledged taking bribes.Damiani, president of the Penarol club, had been a FIFA ethics committee member since 2006.___6:20 p.m.UEFA has been raided by Swiss police and has handed over evidence of a Champions League television rights contract with an offshore marketing agency implicated in the FIFA bribery scandal.The Swiss attorney general’s office said it requested raids on the European soccer body and “another enterprise” for suspected criminal mismanagement and misappropriation linked to dealings with Cross Trading, an offshore registered agency. Cross Trading is owned by two men indicted last year by American federal prosecutors who are working with Swiss counterparts to investigate suspected corruption in international soccer.UEFA and its Champions League marketing agency — TEAM Marketing based in Lucerne, Switzerland — made a $111,000 deal with Cross Trading in 2006 for three seasons of broadcasting in Ecuador. The 2006 contract, co-signed by current FIFA President Gianni Infantino when he was UEFA legal director, was leaked from the database of Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca.UEFA acknowledged that Swiss federal police “acting under a warrant” came to see its contracts with Cross Trading.___5:20 p.m.Panama is fighting back against accusations the country is a haven for money laundering.Panama’s Foreign Relations Ministry has sent a letter to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development saying any suggestion that the country harbours shady financial dealings is categorically untrue.OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria said the Panama Papers leak has shown that the country tolerates a “culture of secrecy” in financial transactions. Gurria said Panama was the last major jurisdiction allowing clients to hide money from tax and law enforcement officials.Panama responded Wednesday that it’s being unfairly singled out for criticism, and suggested a better target for investigation might be the British Virgin Islands.The Foreign Ministry says Panama’s laws “are not fundamentally different from those of any other financial jurisdiction.”___4:25 p.m.The Panamanian law firm at the centre of the huge leak of data on offshore accounts reportedly incorporated a string of companies named after James Bond films.The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, which says it’s one of the outlets given access to the leaked documents, says law firm Mossack Fonseca incorporated companies named Goldfinger, SkyFall, GoldenEye and Moonraker and was asked to set up a firm called Octopussy.The OCCRP said the law firm also incorporated companies named Blofeld and Spectre, after the classic Bond villain and his organization. In addition, its report said, the files contain correspondence from a man called Austin Powers — but that apparently was his real name.___4:10 p.m.Spanish media are reporting that movie director Pedro Almodovar has cancelled publicity events for his new movie “Julieta” following intense interest in the offshore company he owned with his brother years ago.The Europa Press news agency says Almodovar cancelled an appearance at a photo shoot and interviews ahead of the movie’s premiere in Madrid on Wednesday night. It will be released to the public Friday in Spain.Almodovar’s production company El Deseo asked The Associated Press to submit questions in writing and did not immediately respond to a request for comment.“Julieta” is Almovodar’s 20th movie. Europa Press said actors in the movie, including Emma Suarez, Adriana Ugarte, Rossy de Palma, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta and Michelle Jenner went ahead and did interviews.Almodovar’s brother Agustin on Monday blamed his lack of experience for a decision to set up an offshore company in the British Virgin Islands in 1991 that was shut down in 1994.___4 p.m.Authorities in the British Virgin Islands say the release of confidential files from a law firm in Panama have prompted them to investigate whether there have been any breaches of financial regulations in the Caribbean territory.The British Virgin Islands has long played a prominent role in the offshore financial industry, and it has figured notably in the leak of documents from the Mossack-Fonseca law firm. The British territory is frequently used as a registry for offshore companies and trusts in a way that allows their owners to shield their identities from the public.Financial regulators in BVI issued a statement saying they will “pursue a thorough investigation through the BVI’s competent authorities, and further action will be taken, where necessary.”The BVI says it has “rigorous” regulatory oversight of its financial sector and adheres to international standards. Last year, the territory recorded 9,388 company incorporations, down from 11,436 a year earlier. The chain of islands has a population of about 30,000.___1:35 p.m.A Spanish news website says a document in the massive leak of material from a Panamanian law firm shows that Nobel literature laureate Mario Vargas Llosa and his ex-wife were listed as shareholders in an offshore British Virgin Islands company for about a month in 2010.However, a statement from Vargas Llosa’s literary agent said he was surprised to hear that the two were listed as shareholders with Talome Services Corp.News site El Confidencial said Wednesday it obtained the document from the cache of leaked material from law firm Mossack Fonseca. Its report says emails show a Vargas Llosa representative asked lawyers to remove Vargas Llosa and his ex-wife as shareholders on Oct. 6, 2010.Vargas Llosa was awarded the Nobel prize on Oct. 7. El Confidencial says the company’s shareholders were changed from Vargas Llosa and his ex-wife to two Russians on Oct. 12.The statement from Vargas Llosa’s agent says he and his ex-wife never interacted with Mossack Fonseca. It also says Vargas Llosa has complied with all tax regulations in Spain and elsewhere.___1:25 p.m.Malta’s health and energy minister is facing calls for his resignation after he was named in a leak of documents from a Panama-based law firm.Konrad Mizzi, who is also deputy leader of the governing Labour Party, has acknowledged owning a company in Panama which is held by a trust in New Zealand.However, Mizzi insists that the leaked documents make no reference to him holding any funds in Panama. He said he has commissioned an independent tax audit to prove that he’s done nothing wrong, and that the company in Panama “will be closed soon after the tax investigation is concluded.”The opposition Nationalist Party is holding a protest to press for Mizzi’s resignation on Sunday.Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has stood by his minister, but said he will dismiss him if it emerges that what Mizzi is saying is untrue.___1:10 p.m.A lawyer for Nico Rosberg says the Formula One driver used an offshore company solely for liability reasons and to enable him to operate internationally.German public broadcaster NDR has reported that Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca manages a company called Ambitious Group Ltd which has a contract with Mercedes for Rosberg’s “driver services.”Mossack Fonseca is at the centre of a vast leak of confidential documents detailing the offshore business arrangements of thousands of wealthy people.Rosberg’s German lawyer Christian Schertz says British Virgin Islands-registered Ambitious Group wasn’t used for tax avoidance.Schertz said in a statement late Tuesday that “tax-wise, Mr. Rosberg acted correctly in every way.”He says Rosberg, who won Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix, is registered in Monaco for tax purposes and receives all payments there.___1:10 p.m.France’s far-right National Front party is filing law suits for defamation against media who imply that it or leader Marine Le Pen — who plans to run in the 2017 presidential race — may be implicated in the Panama papers scandal.Party lawyer David Dassa-Le Deist issued a statement Wednesday saying defamation proceedings “have been started on this day.”The statement did not name the media being targeted. However, it noted the daily Le Monde’s article Tuesday looking into alleged offshore dealings by a longtime Le Pen acquaintance whose company provides publicity for electoral campaigns. The paper also examined potential but unproven offshore interests of Le Pen’s father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, via a former employee.Le Pen’s anti-immigration National Front portrays globalization as one of the enemies to redressing the French economy and preserving the nation’s identity, making any innuendo that people linked to the party may allegedly be using foreign shell companies to hide funds a sensitive issue.___10:25 a.m.The president of Ukraine has defended himself in the massive leak of records on offshore accounts that has named political officials, business and celebrities from around the world.Petro Poroshenko said at a news conference in Tokyo on Wednesday that an offshore holding company set up for his candy business was a necessary step to put his assets into a blind trust when he became president in 2014.The leaks have raised suspicion that such offshore entities were set up to avoid taxes. Iceland’s prime minister resigned as the scandal deepened on Tuesday.Poroshenko insisted that his case is different than Iceland’s or Russia’s, and that the company was not set up to minimize taxes.He is in Japan this week to meet the Japanese prime minister and business leaders.___10:20 a.m.India’s top Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has denied any connection to four shipping companies registered in tax havens following the publication of the names of rich and powerful people linked to the leaks, dubbed the Panama Papers.He was responding to a report published Monday by The Indian Express newspaper based on the Panama Papers.Bachhan tweeted an image of his statement late Tuesday: “It is possible that my name has been misused.”He said he did not know any of the companies he was allegedly linked to and has never been a director for any of them.He added: “I have paid all my taxes including on monies spent by me overseas. Monies that I have remitted overseas have been in compliance with law, including remittances through LRS (Liberalized Remittance Scheme) after paying Indian taxes. In any event the news report in the Indian Express doesn’t even suggest any illegality on my part.” The Latest: Panama to create panel to boost transparency read more

Gareth Bales decision key to Pochettinos future

first_imgReal Madrid forward Gareth Bale could help determine the future of Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.The European champions have been tracking Pochettino for the best part of two years and are prepared to match United’s offer for the former Southampton boss. United are believed to be in the race for Pochettino after sacking Jose Mourinho last week. That means that Los Blancos must dig deep in the summer to stand any chance of winning the battle for the former Espanyol boss.Spurs are reportedly looking at least £45m in compensation and Pochettino is expected to get a massive pay rise at Old Trafford. Spurs have first option to buy back Bale on the cheap which could help the Spanish giants secure the services of Pochettino.Certainly, the idea of the Wales international returning to the club he left nearly half-a-decade ago would be a tempting one for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.Re-signing the former PFA player of the year, even at a reduced price would be a statement of intent for the North London club for the upcoming season.Kieran trippier, Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham HotspursTrippier and Pochettino try to clear up a war of words George Patchias – September 13, 2019 The apparent war of words between Kieran Trippier and Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be nothing more than a misunderstanding.Trippier was sold by Tottenham…At least, that’s the believe for former Tottenham Hotspur defender Terry Fenwick.He said, according to Daily Star:“The squad is fantastic already but I’m hoping Daniel and Mauricio get their heads together and bring in one or two world-class players.“If they don’t spend I think he will leave.”last_img read more

Breaking stigmas attached to mental health

first_imgIndian Chamber Of Commerce, Kolkata, organised a session titled ‘Mental Health – Breaking the Stigma’ on February 2, 2019 at the chamber itself.Eminent doctors and social workers like Dr Manoj Shah, Psychiatrist and Professor of Child and Adolescent psychiatry, Hofstra – Northshore LIJ School of Medicine, USA; Dr Shashi Panja, Minister, Department of Women and Child Development and Social Welfare, Government of West Bengal; HE Bruce Bucknell, British Deputy, High Commissioner in Kolkata and Dr Prerna Shah, Neuropsychologist and Associate Director, Northshore University Hospital, USA alongwith Minu Budhia, Chairperson, ICC Task Force on Special Abilities and Psychotherapist and Founder – Caring Minds, ICANFLYY and Café ICANFLYY were present at the event. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn her address, Minu Budhia welcomed the guests on the behalf of ICC Special Task Force on Special Abilities. She said that this is the first time in any Chamber of Commerce or Industry Association, that a committee or task force has been made to create awareness and talk about mental health. Budhia believes that it is as important for child, as for parents, teachers, or medical professionals. Sharing her personal experience, Minu stated, “As a mother of a special daughter, I have undergone a full circle – running from pillar to post and surprised at the nil or negligible awareness about mental health. I believe that the first step for mental health is acceptance by family and society. We have come a long way but still miles to go. And that is what we are here to do today.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMinu feels that addressing the barriers attached to mental health is important. As a parent, it took her 10 years to understand and accept and then take it as challenge. With that ongoing journey of understanding mental health problems and unfolding the myths about it, she started actively working towards the cause too. In the attempt to fight against the mental health problems, she started her own initiatives like CARING MINDS, a psychological wellness centre and ICANFLYY – an institute for special needs and cafe icanflyy – a cafe which runs by special needs individuals. When it comes to mental health and dealing with its problems, the awareness needs to start from childhood at home, in schools, in colleges and at workplaces. And, the interactive session served as a much-needed platform for exchanging and expanding ideas and issues related to mental health and special needs. While talking in the session, Minu Budhia quoted Demi Lovato: “I wish people could understand that brain is the most important organ of our body. Just because you can’t see mental illness like you see a broken bone, does not mean it is not as detrimental or devastating to a family or an individual.” The session discussed that special need individuals do not need to be employed out of pity or sympathy. Moreover, corporates, businesses and start-ups should be motivated to embrace the idea with an open mind not only because it is a social responsibility, but also as there is a pool of unemployed and under employed talent that can wbe trapped for the employers’ own growth. The discussion led to a conclusion that workplaces where special individuals work with dignity and confidence are needed, in order to them the place and respect they deserve in society.last_img read more
