Mark is a good manager, so why shouldn’t he be linked with the job?“He had a little spell at Everton [as a player] although he’s a Man United man really. Good luck to him.

Indian team leaves for Mumbai for World Cup final

first_imgThe bare-knuckled slugfest eventually saw India pack off Pakistan by 29 runs.Indian cricket team on Thursday left for Mumbai to play the final of the cricket World Cup against Sri Lanka on Saturday. India vanquished Pakistan to storm into the final in a high-voltage match on Wednesday night, which was watched by the prime ministers of the two countries and millions of passionate fans across the world. As the team members boarded the bus in the afternoon for taking a flight, Indian cricketers looked in an upbeat mood while the mood in the Pakistani camp was one that of disappointment. The 29-run victory at Mohali had enabled India to maintain its unbeaten record against the arch-rivals in the 36 years of World Cup history. Man-of-the-match in Wednesday’s match Sachin Tendulkar waved to the fans and so did many others including skipper M.S. Dhoni while Yuvraj Singh, who hails from Chandigarh, obliged few fans with autographs and got pictures clicked with them. Zaheer Khan’s girl friend Isha Sharwani and Ashish Nehra’s family were also present at the Hotel Taj in Chandigarh, which had been brought under tight security cover. In the Pakistani side, speedster Shoaib Akhtar was the first to board his team bus as Pakistani team also left Chandigarh in the afternoon. Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi’s brother, Mushtaq Afridi, told journalists that there was disappointment in the team that they could not win. He also gave credit to the Indian team for playing well. He said the skipper was sad that the team could not make it to the finals. Mushtaq felt Pakistan had lost because of small mistakes which made the match slip out of their hands. India now meet Sri Lanka in a bid to win the coveted Cup for the second time since it first stunned the cricketing world by beating West Indies in 1983 at the Lords.  – With inputs from PTIadvertisementlast_img read more

New Brunswick set for cannabis retail but first year sales less than

first_imgFREDERICTON – New Brunswick says it will be ready for cannabis sales when it becomes legal in October — but the delay from the original July startup will cost the province millions.Finance Minister Cathy Rogers says all 20 Cannabis NB locations will be open on Oct. 17 and staff will be hired and trained this summer.She says an original forecast of $6 million in revenues this year will be more like $3.6 million because of the delays in Ottawa getting Bill C-45 passed.“Given the delay, we are now projected to be revenue neutral for this fiscal year. Our original projections at budget were modest and at the lower end of the spectrum,” she said.Rogers said 2019-2020 will be the first full fiscal year for legalized recreational cannabis sales, and it might take a few quarters before her department is able to make informed forecasts on revenues.Rogers still won’t reveal the prices to be charged in New Brunswick.The province is imposing strict regulations on the sale, transport and use of cannabis.“Only those 19 years and older will be able to accept online deliveries and will be permitted in the retail locations,” Rogers said Thursday.Adults 19 and older will be able to legally buy up to 30 grams of cannabis from a Cannabis NB retail store, have up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent in their possession when outside their home, and grow up to four plants at their primary residence.When grown indoors, the plants must be in a separate, locked space. When grown outdoors, they must be located behind a locked enclosure that is 1.52 metres high.It will be against the law to consume cannabis in a public place or in any motor vehicle while it’s in operation. It’s also illegal to distribute cannabis to a minor.New Brunswick Health Minister Benoit Bourque said one education program has already been launched and there will be more.“It will target the vulnerable populations and specific populations, but mainly the youth, which is as far as we’re concerned in Health, the main population we want to target,” he said.Kim Snow, the chief residential tenancies officer for the province, said property owners can restrict tenants from smoking or growing cannabis if it’s in a lease from the start, or amended by mutual consent.“So as long as it’s written in the Form 6 standard form of lease their intentions ahead of time, then they will be able to restrict the smoking and prohibit the growing of cannabis,” she said.Snow said any lease provision that prohibits smoking applies to any kind of smoking.She said if there are no restrictions in the lease and the tenant won’t agree to changes, then the landlord’s hands may be tied.“If for example, the tenant did not want to agree to that term of their lease then the landlord would have to wait until the expiry of their lease or end it by the natural terms of their contract,” she said.last_img read more

Akhara seeks neutral place for mediation procedure

first_imgNew Delhi: Nirmohi Akhara, one of the original litigants in the Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case, has requested the Supreme Court to consider moving the mediation panel proceedings from Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh to New Delhi or some other “neutral place” due to the sensitive nature of the issue.It has also said that an amicable resolution would be possible only through “direct dialogue” between the UP Sunni Wakf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. Besides, it has further requested that two more retired judges of the apex court be appointed to the mediation panel which is exploring the possibility of an amicable settlement of the land dispute. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had on March 8 referred the land dispute case for mediation by a panel headed by former apex court judge F M I Kalifulla for exploring possibility of an amicable settlement. The bench had said that spiritual guru and founder of Art of Living foundation Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu, a renowned mediator, will be the other two members of the panel of mediators and the proceedings will be held at Faizabad. In its application dated March 25, 2019, Nirmohi Akhara has said that the original parties claiming title — The Panch Ramanandi Nirmohi Akhara Ayodhya and The UP Sunni Central Waqf Board — can be encouraged to have a dialogue under the aegis of the panel of mediators without requiring them to give proposals in writing. Further, the application said: “Due to the sensitive nature of the issue, and other local pressures, this court may consider moving out the mediation proceedings from Faizabad to New Delhi or some other neutral place where adequate and genuine security could be provided to the concerned parties and their representatives to enable them to participate in the proceedings without any threat, persuasion or hindrance.” It said Nirmohi Akhara had participated in proceedings before the mediation panel on March 13 but “the proceedings left a lot to be desired”.last_img read more

Naturally, the Soviet Union was an international ice hockey juggernaut, but the Russian Federation hasn’t had their luck, winning only a silver and a bronze over the past six games.

Arrizabalaga discusses Real Madrid rumours

first_imgAthletico Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga revealed that he tried to not listen to the rumours that were linking in with a move to Real Madrid back in January as he was still recovering from injuryThe 23-year-old was rumoured to have been close to joining Real in the winter transfer window before agreeing on a seven-and-a-half-year contract at Bilbao with a reported release clause of €80m.During the time of the speculation surrounding Arrizabalaga’s future, he was also nursing a Metatarsal bone bruise that saw him miss seven of Bilbao’s fixtures in a near three-month layoff period and he insists that his main focus at the time was returning to full fitness.“In the end, when you’re injured and you have hubbub going on, well… I didn’t think about the long term. I was focused on recovering well to get back playing and focusing on my future. I didn’t think so far ahead, I had much more immediate things to worry about.” he told Marca.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Zinedine Zidane had publicly revealed his admiration for Arrizabalaga back in January, but then ruled out any move for the Spain international in favour of keeping Keylor Navas as his number one for the rest of the season.But for Arrizabalaga, the Frenchman’s comments were of little importance to him.“They’re the words of a coach who wasn’t my coach at the time. I tried to isolate myself from all the noise. It was a time when there weren’t LaLiga games and there weren’t many other signings either so it was in the press a lot. I tried not to think about everything they were saying,” he said.Arrizabalaga is Spain’s second-choice goalkeeper for the World Cup this summer behind Manchester United’s David de Gea.last_img read more
