New postponement of the Premier: will not return on April 30

first_imgNext week, always according to information from the British newspaper, the Premier League and the EFL will meet to agree on a new date to return to normal. In England, for the moment, about 10,000 coronavirus infections have been diagnosed and 465 people have died. The infected peak is far from reaching its highest point, so setting the competition for a month from now was far from reality.Meanwhile, the virus crisis continues to wreak havoc on clubs in economic terms. The PFA, association of soccer players, has requested to hold a meeting with the employers to negotiate the variations in the players’ salaries, given the need to lower them to make sports projects viable. At least until May the ball will not roll in the UK … The Premier League has wanted, at all times, to recover the usual rhythm of the competition as soon as possible. Therefore, they dared to mark the April 30th as a return date, although the spread of the coronavirus will prevent it. As reported by the Daily Mail, the clubs have already been informed that the English domestic tournament will not take place on the scheduled day and that its relaunch will still have to wait.last_img read more

first_imgDelegates at the County Council Sitting.Nimba County authorities, including the county’s 11 lawmakers through the County Council Sitting on Sunday, September 2, budgeted US$3,680,092 for 2018/2019, with 24 percent of the money targeting road works in the county.The 113 delegates, including paramount chiefs, administrative district representatives, city councils, students, the disabled community, constituency representatives and traditional chiefs took the decision through voting, with 108 persons voting in favor of the budget, seven against, and one absent from the voting process.This year’s County Council Sitting agenda was one of the heavily debated issues, where the citizens turned out en-masse to witness the occasion and lobbied with some of the delegates to include them or their projects in the budget.Confusion ensued during the Project Management Committee’s presentation covering the period from 2016 to June, 2018. Some delegates suspected complications in the report, claiming it was  bulky, a situation that was, however, not immediately resolved.At last, the caucus, through the chairman, Senator Prince Y. Johnson, constituted a committee to work along with the county authorities and peruse the documents in order to distribute them among the district commissioners and other stakeholders.Co-Chair Representative Johnson Gwiakolo of District # 9 apologized to the citizens, informing them that the past document/report cannot stop the future plan. He added, “We should go ahead with the meeting, while we wait for a committee to peruse the documents and make their report subsequently.”In the new budget, US$804,165 will go to feeder roads rehabilitation and repair of the grounded machines, US$236,000 for affected communities; US$450,000 for electoral districts developments, US$569,505 go into debt owed institutions and other incomplete projects or liabilities.Other allotments include PMC operation of US$210,000; scholarship, US$90,000, Nimba Community Radio, US$30,000; Nimba County Community College, US$50,000; Disabled Community, US$45,000, ABC, US$25,000; LICC, US$30,000, Nimba County Health Team, US$30,000; Traditional Chiefs, US$40,000; County Meeting, US$75,000 and Cities, US$30,000.The amount of US$ 90,000 was allotted for statutory superintendents, district commissioners, township commissioners, paramount chiefs, city mayors, and the renovation of the  Superintendent’s Compound.The county is expected to generate income, including US$275, 825 from the Government County Development Funds, US$980, 000 from ArcelorMittal Social Development fund, US$186, 190.14 cents from North Star scrap proceeds and US$1,045,665.78 cents expected scraps proceeds from both North Star and Sethi Ferro Fabric Incorporated; but US$510,000 will come from the proceeds of Sethi Ferro Fabric Inc. It should have been US$600,000, but 15 percent was taken off by the government.This County Sitting brought together all the 11 lawmakers, along with chiefs and elders in the county.Each of the speakers, headed by Senator Prince Johnson, called for one Nimba, speaking against disunity and tribalism, even though there were some dissatisfaction raised among those whose entities, such as the Community Watch Forum, were not captured in the budget.David Mahn, head of the Community Watch Forum, expressed frustration, but begged for consideration to allocate money in the county’s budget for those regularly assigned with the forum. The forum is an auxiliary security of ordinary residents who devote their time, serving as proxies in places where state security, specifically police officers, are not assigned.During the last County Council Sitting in the year 2016, US$10,000 was allotted for the Community Watch Forum.Other institutions, including the Ganta Christian Community, the Ministry of Education-Nimba, Jackson F. Doe Hospital and women’s organizations were not also captured in the budget.Nothing was also allotted for agriculture or any agricultural-related programs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rasshan could go back to QB

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityIt became an issue after starter Ben Olson was knocked out in the first quarter, forcing red-shirt freshman walk-on McLeod Bethel-Thompson into action. “I talked to Coach Dorrell and he said he didn’t put me in the game because I didn’t get any (practice) snaps,” Rasshan said. “(Dorrell) said we’ll go in and get a blue print and see how everything is going. I think I have the most experience at quarterback, so I definitely think I can help the team there.” Dorrell said the availability of Olson, who has a left knee injury, and Patrick Cowan (knee) will be assessed. Using Bethel-Thompson, true freshman Chris Forcer and Rasshan are also options. “I don’t have all the answers today, so don’t ask me today,” Dorrell said. “But those are the things we’ll have to consider over this weekend and move forward.” The quarterback situation was dire after Olson was hurt while being sacked by the Irish, and may not improve in time for Cal. Olson, who was on crutches but declined comment after the game, will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of his injury. Cowan tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee two weeks ago against Washington, and has not practiced since. By Brian Dohn and Jill Painter STAFF WRITERS UCLA coach Karl Dorrell said the coaching staff will spend the next day or so deciding what to do with its quarterback situation, but Osaar Rasshan will be involved in it. Rasshan, who moved to receiver in the offseason, said he was told by Dorrell after UCLA’s 20-6 loss Saturday to Notre Dame he would return to quarterback during practice and could be the starter when the Bruins return from a bye and host California on Oct. 20. “We think all (Olson’s) ligaments are intact, and in pretty good shape,” Dorrell said. “We need to make an evaluation at some point over the weekend.” Bethel-Thompson completed 12 of 28 for 139 yards, was intercepted four times, sacked four times and fumbled three times, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Home sweet home Notre Dame freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen completed 17 of 27 passes for 84 yards in the first victory of his college career. Notre Dame continued to enforce a policy that freshman players can’t talk to the media, even though this was the former Oaks Christian star’s homecoming and Notre Dame’s first victory. “He was pretty fired up because this is his home turf,” Weis said. “He managed the team and did what we asked him to do. He’s a freshman, and this is the first time as a starting quarterback that he’s won. So, he’s as happy as anyone right now.” No Moline UCLA junior defensive tackle Chase Moline did not dress for the game because of migraine headaches. He practiced during the week. Who’s watching? When the deal was signed 14 years ago, it seemed like Notre Dame’s first trip to the Rose Bowl in 83 years would be a big deal. ABC picked up the game, but not many people saw it. The game was slated to go to only 18 percent of the nation. The rest of the country was to get Ohio State at Purdue. Odds and ends Senior left guard Shannon Tevaga, a four-year starter, played for the first time since injuring his knee Sept. 15 at Utah. … UCLA reserve linebackers Shawn Oatis and John Hale each missed the second half because of concussions. … Bruins receiver Dominique Johnson suffered a left ankle sprain.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
