Sánchez Alexis Sanchez given 16-month prison sentence for tax fraud Goal Last updated 1 year ago 19:10 2/7/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(32) Alexis Sanchez Manchester United Getty Images A. Sánchez Manchester United Premier League Spanish law states that the 29-year-old will not have to spend any time in jail and he has agreed to pay the money he owes with interest Alexis Sanchez has accepted a 16-month prison sentence for committing tax fraud during his time at Barcelona, although he will not spend time in jail.The Manchester United forward was accused of defrauding the treasury of €1 million between 2012 and 2013, relating to income from his image rights.Sanchez has, however, reached an agreement with the prosecutor to pay the money he owes with interest.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Despite the verdict, the Chilean will not spend time in prison as he is a first offender and the sentence is less than two years – which crucially, in Spanish law, prohibits jail time.The ex-Arsenal star is the latest football figure to be punished by Spanish prosecutors for an apparent dodging of taxes.Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and Ricardo Carvalho have all been pursued by the authorities recently.Barcelona star Messi was handed a 21-month jail term in 2016, but managed to exchange it for a €250,000 fine last year, while Mourinho paid to settle his and Carvalho was given a fine and a seven-month sentence.Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, meanwhile, was accused of owing €14.7m but has protested his innocence in an ongoing case.Alexis joined Barcelona from Udinese in 2011 and spent three years with the Catalan side, winning a Liga title as well as the Club World Cup under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.He left to join Arsenal in 2014 and starred for Arsene Wenger’s team until making the shock move to Old Trafford in January in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, despite it having appeared he would be joining Manchester City.The 29-year-old has made three appearances for Mourinho’s side so far, scoring his first goal for his new club in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.The Red Devils are currently 13 points behind leaders City after 26 matches and return to action on Sunday when they visit Newcastle United.last_img read more

Report: West Ham 3 Southampton 0

first_imgWest Ham 3 Southampton 0: Arnautovic gets London Stadium smiling again Alex Fisher Last updated 1 year ago 23:54 3/31/18 arnautovicjoaomario - cropped Getty Images Marko Arnautovic continued to haunt former boss Mark Hughes with two goals in West Ham’s 3-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League. West Ham gave their supporters plenty to cheer as they boosted their Premier League survival hopes with a 3-0 victory over fellow strugglers Southampton.Three weeks on from the angry pitch invasions during West Ham’s capitulation to Burnley, the Hammers turned on the style on Saturday amid increased security at London Stadium.Home fans were more than happy to stay in their seats as David Moyes’ side moved five points clear of the relegation zone, a first-half double from Marko Arnautovic coming after Joao Mario had broken the deadlock. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player There was added significance for Arnautovic as he proved to be Mark Hughes’ tormentor for the second time this season, the Austrian – who scored against Hughes’ Stoke City in December – coming back to haunt his former boss on his league debut in the Saints dugout.Charlie Austin’s return did little to boost the visitors – who failed to have a shot on target – as Hughes slipped to a fourth loss in a first match in charge of a new Premier League club.The Saints remain embroiled in a relegation fight with seven games to play, Southampton now two points from safety and five behind West Ham – who rise to 14th.pic.twitter.com/05viPReqHA— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) March 31, 2018Keen to avoid a repeat of the ugly scenes from their last home game, West Ham were immediately on the front foot and it paid dividends with two early goals.With 13 minutes on the clock, a stray pass from Mario Lemina was intercepted by Hammers skipper Mark Noble, who released Cheikhou Kouyate to charge at the Southampton defence.The midfielder’s cross found Joao Mario in acres of space and he lashed the ball beyond Alex McCarthy.Four minutes later the Hammers doubled their advantage, Joao Mario turning provider for Arnautovic, who beat McCarthy at the second attempt after missing a glorious chance moments earlier.Kouyate and substitute Edimilson Fernandes wasted chances to stretch their advantage, but Arnautovic made no mistake in first-half stoppage time with a crisp volley from Arthur Masuaku’s deep cross.3 – @WestHamUtd have scored three first-half goals in a Premier League game for the first time since September 2012 against Fulham. Response.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 31, 2018 A more relaxed West Ham returned after the break as confidence began to grow both on and off the pitch, Moyes’ men keeping Southampton at bay as the visitors looked to mount a comeback.Despite enjoying more possession than their hosts early in the second half, Southampton failed to test Joe Hart with anything other than dangerous crosses – the England goalkeeper handling them with aplomb.Arnautovic went close to completing his hat-trick just after the hour on a rare foray into Southampton territory, but his curling effort was just wide of McCarthy’s left-hand post.The treble would not come as his day came to an early end – Jordan Hugill replacing him – but the 28-year-old had already done enough to lift the mood around London Stadium. Key Opta Facts: – West Ham United scored three first-half goals in a Premier League game for the first time since September 2012 against Fulham.- Indeed, the Hammers have scored three goals in a Premier League game at the London Stadium for just the second time – also 3-0 vs Crystal Palace in January 2017.- Mark Hughes hasn’t won his first Premier League match in charge of a club since September 2004 at Blackburn – losing four of his five such games since then (lost with Man City, QPR, Stoke, Southampton and drew with Fulham).- Hughes has won just one of his last 12 away Premier League games as manager (W1 D3 L8).- Marko Arnautovic has been directly involved in more Premier League goals this season than any other West Ham player (9 goals, 3 assists).- Joe Hart kept his first Premier League clean sheet since September (versus Swansea City), ending an eight-game wait for a shutout.  read morelast_img read more

Moroccos ECOWAS Bid to Undergo Legal Examination

Rabat – Morocco’s bid to join ECOWAS has been submitted to an independent committee of experts for legal review.The move is the final step of admissibility within the regional body. It comes a year after heads of governments in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) evaluated the political and economic aspects of Morocco’s prospective membership.The three-member review committee is composed of Ibrahima Fall, former minister of foreign affairs of Senegal; Beninese constitutional law and international expert Joel Aivo; and Ameze Guobadia, Nigerian public law professor at the University of Lagos. Mixed feelingsMorocco’s ECOWAS bid, which followed the North African country’s historic return to the African Union in early 2017, has been greeted with an equal amount of reserve and support.The major suspicion of critics—in addition to the widely circulated geographical argument, Morocco not being geographically located in West Africa—is that Morocco will be a threat to the region. The great majority of ECOWAS countries are lagging miles behind in international visibility and national productivity.They argue that Morocco will disrupt the market and power balance of the organization.But Rabat’s ECOWAS aspirations have also been applauded by many, including a number of ECOWAS member states presidents, civil organizations, and internal relations experts. Morocco’s bid is particularly supported in countries like Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, and Senegal, where a bold Moroccan presence has improved public discourse on Morocco.As development is contagious, Morocco’s growing industrial sector, advanced housing sector, and evolving dynamism in many other fields will propel other lagging member states, supporters have claimed.How will the Nigerian factor impact accession?While the geographical argument and the general population’s qualms about a Moroccan accession have been reported to have slowed down the pace of negotiations, Morocco’s sluggish ECOWAS tale also includes the strategic weight that Nigeria carries in the regional body.A study published in August found that Morocco’s ECOWAS dream is still facing “serious obstacles.” The study predicted that Morocco’s accession to the regional body is “far from certain” and may take longer than expected to materialize.“We note that significant obstacles to accession remain, due to both political and economic concerns, particularly from Nigeria. This implies that membership is likely years rather months away, and may be blocked entirely.”Morocco and Nigeria have been on good diplomatic terms since the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is also the incumbent ECOWAS chairperson. The two leaders signed earlier this year a historic pipeline project set to promote political and economic integration in West Africa.Francophone magazine Jeune Afrique has reported that the three-member committee’s final verdict will be known in the coming days or weeks.But given the unconventional buildup that led to the final step—prolonged delays, mixed feelings, and an increasingly Africa-oriented Morocco, it remains to be seen whether the verdict will be reached as early as expected. read more

Crumlin Theres no problem with the planned location of the childrens hospital

first_imgCRUMLIN CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL has voiced its support for the planned location of the new National Children’s Hospital, reacting to concerns raised by An Taisce and Fianna Fáil.Fianna Fáil’s health spokesperson Billy Kelleher said that there were still “fundamental questions” surround the decision to build the hospital in and around St James’s Hospital in Dublin’s south inner city, and yesterday called on Health Minister James Reilly to issue a “speedy and substantive response”.In a statement this morning, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin, the country’s largest paediatric hospital, said it wished to “categorically reiterate its support for the location” of the new children’s hospital.It adds that their position on the project has remained unchanged since the board of management was informed last April of the decision to locate the hospital at St James’s.An Taisce has written to government on the topic, warning that the new hospital will be in breach of EU and Irish planning laws as it would not be co-located with a maternity hospital.They are calling on the government to instead use a 15 acre site east of the Coombe.It was confirmed last year that the new children’s hospital would be located at St James’s Hospital campus, and it is expected to be completed by late 2017 at the earliest.An Board Pleanála rejected original proposals to locate the hospital  at the site of the Mater in Dublin city centre.Billy Kelleher: ‘Intervention of An Taisce on Children’s Hospital location is significant’ >More: An Taisce writes to Taoiseach over Children’s Hospital concerns >last_img read more

New Film Genre Designed to Put Viewers to Sleep

first_imgDo you find today’s films too exciting? Need to slow things down a bit? Perhaps get some shuteye in the process? Boy has Sondra Lowell got some flicks for you. The filmmaker has pioneered the new “film sleepy” genre–movies made for the sole purpose of putting their viewers to sleep. Lowell used to make boring films by accident. Now she’s parlayed that skill into works of art. “I’ve always wanted to make a movie but found I was good at putting people to sleep,” Lowell told AOL. “I took classes at UCLA and the teachers would fall apart when I made a script. People would tell me that I didn’t understand how to make a story and told me the scenes should build on each other. I thought I was doing that, but people fell asleep. It took me awhile to realize I was on to something.”The first film in the genre is WebcamMurder.com. A reasonably exciting title sure, but the LA Times called the film “the most boring talkie ever made.” The film is largely comprised of people sitting around, wondering how to get people to watch them on their Webcams. “It sounds a lot more exciting than it is,” Lowell said of the film. You can watch an exceedingly dull excerpt after the jump.Lowell describes its follow up Sublime Crime: A Subliminal Mystery thusly, It is a big step forward in movies worth sleeping through. It is mostly a blank screen with flashes of plot and personal growth affirmations, accompanied by an unintelligible binaural soundtrack. Andy Warhol’s infamous eight-hour boredom epic Sleep was a big influence on the director. “I actually did a stage musical version of it,” Lowell told the press. “The show started at midnight and I would sing and tap-dance before the audience went to sleep. Then I would wake up in the middle of the night and go to the bathroom and then perform in the morning.”Perhaps a Forever Lazy cross promotion is in order.last_img read more

Le risque de maladie dAlzheimer multiplié par deux pour les fumeurs entre

first_imgLe risque de maladie d’Alzheimer multiplié par deux pour les fumeurs entre 50 et 60 ansFinlande – Une nouvelle étude démontrerait que chez les patients fumant beaucoup entre 50 et 60 ans, le risque de développer la maladie d’Alzheimer entre 70 et 80 ans serait multiplié par deux.Publiée récemment aux États-Unis, l’étude en question menée par des chercheurs finlandais démontrerait avec évidence le lien entre tabac et maladie d’Alzheimer, chez les personnes âgées de 50 à 60 ans. Ainsi, les chercheurs expliquent que d’après leur étude, si à cet âge un patient fume beaucoup, il a deux fois plus de risques de développer la maladie d’Alzheimer ou un autre état de démence 20 ans plus tard qu’un individu du même âge, non-fumeur.Pour parvenir à cette conclusion, le Dr Minna Rusanen a étudié les données concernant 21.123 individus ayant participé à une enquête entre 1978 et 1985 explique TF1. Pour autant, ces conclusions concernent les gros fumeurs (plus de deux paquets de cigarettes par jour), les “petits” et anciens fumeurs semblant ne pas avoir plus de risques de développer un état de démence. Il s’agirait là de la première étude à démontrer l’existence d’un lien entre tabac et maladie d’Alzheimer.Le 26 octobre 2010 à 16:36 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Google boosts Assistant search and Maps to help you order food

first_img Tags Share your voice Post a comment Integrating food delivery is Google’s latest bid to expand its popular services.  Joan Cros/NurPhoto via Getty Images Hungry? Google wants to help. In a series of updates Thursday, the search giant is adding features to Google Assistant, Maps and its classic search to help you get your next meal. Partnering with delivery services including DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice and ChowNow, Google is enabling users in the US to order directly from search, Maps or Assistant as opposed to having to go to the respective apps for the restaurants of choice. An “order online” button will appear in search or Maps when the restaurant you’re looking for uses one of those services. Google says other services like Zuppler will be “coming soon.”You don’t need to have an account with any of the services to place an order and can instead simply use your Google account. Menus are all displayed in the apps, with Google also showing the minimum each service requires and the respective delivery fees. The ordering process is largely similar to the standalone apps, with options available to enter promo codes and change credit cards if needed at checkout. Ordering food from Google search Google The entire ordering experience is done through any of the three Google services. Food can be delivered or picked up. Google Pay, the company’s rival to Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, will also be able to handle payment.Placing a delivery order with Google Assistant Google Android and iOS users with the Google Assistant app can place orders or reorders using their voice by saying “Hey Google, order food from [restaurant]” or “Hey Google, reorder food from [restaurant].”Integrating food delivery is Google’s latest bid to expand its popular services, building on the company adding the ability last year to call an Uber or Lyft using Assistant.

Trudeau fires Canada envoy to China for remarks on Huawei case

first_imgCanada`s prime minister Justin Trudeau (R) shakes hands with former immigration minister John McCallum after McCallum delivered his farewell speech in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, on 31 January 2017. Reuters File PhotoCanadian prime minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday said he had sought and accepted the resignation of Ottawa’s ambassador to China, days after the diplomat sparked controversy with criticism of the US extradition request for a top Huawei executive.”Last night I asked for and accepted John McCallum’s resignation as Canada’s Ambassador to China,” Trudeau said in a statement that did not explain why the decision had been taken.McCallum has been making headlines in recent days over comments regarding Meng Wanzhou, Chinese giant Huawei’s chief financial officer who was arrested in Vancouver on 1 December and is facing extradition to the United States.Accused of fraud linked to violations of American sanctions on Iran, she is out on bail, but her arrest has sparked an escalating diplomatic crisis between Ottawa and Beijing.McCallum briefed lawmakers Tuesday on the plight of two Canadians detained in China and a third placed on death row in what are widely seen as retaliatory moves by Beijing.After the briefing he told Chinese-language media in Markham, Ontario that he believed the US extradition request was seriously flawed.He cited political comments on the case by US president Donald Trump, the “extraterritorial aspect” of Meng’s case and the fact that Canada did not sign on to the Iran sanctions that Washington wants her extradited for.McCallum’s remarks were immediately panned by opposition parties and others for seeming to undercut the strict hands-off approach to judicial matters touted by the Canadian government.The following day he issued a statement saying that he “misspoke,” and “regrets” that his comments “have created confusion.”But on Friday, McCallum told The Vancouver Star that it would be “great for Canada” if the US dropped its extradition request.”From Canada’s point of view, if (the US) drops the extradition request, that would be great for Canada,” he told the newspaper at a charity function.”We have to make sure that if the US does such a deal, it also includes the release of our two people. And the US is highly aware of that,” he said.Trudeau’s statement hailed McCallum’s almost two decades of public service, which it said he carried out “honourably and with distinction.”McCallum previously held a number of cabinet posts, including defence minister, minister of veteran affairs and immigration minister.The statement added that, effective immediately, McCallum’s deputy Jim Nickel would represent Canada in Beijing as its charge d’affaires.last_img

RAD Technology Patents Modular Cancer Treatment Facilities

first_img February 4, 2016 — RAD Technology Medical Systems (RAD) has added a new patent to its expanding portfolio of modular building technologies for cancer treatment facilities. Issued by the United States Patent Office on Oct. 27, 2015, the patent protects specialized means and methods to construct high-energy radiation vaults. RAD also received a patent earlier in May 2015 on its Temporary Radiotherapy Vault (TRV).The RAD approach is driven by three key values:Time: The solutions offered by RAD can be delivered in one-third the time of traditional construction methods. This impacts patient accessibility to the latest care and gives institutions an edge over competitors looking to enter their market. RAD can install its TRV cancer facility and perform a radiation survey with its pre-commissioned linear accelerator (linac) in just five days.Technology: The modular technology also provides significant value and flexibility. In traditional construction, both the shielding and machine requirements are cast into the concrete structure. RAD offers a component approach to equipment installation, facilitating future upgrades along with a shielding method that can be modified without the cost and disruption of expensive lead and high density block solutions.Unique Financing: One of the most distinctive values is the financing approach the RAD solutions offer. A recoverable asset, without destructive demolition, can be treated as equipment or tangible personal property, allowing operational leases to be structured for large institutions not seeking to deploy capital or wishing to avoid further impairment of their balance sheets with debt.New revenue opportunities can be stalled during the arduous and lengthy struggle to free up capital. With an off balance sheet lease made possible by RAD’s patented modular technology, institutions can develop facilities and services, open new markets and start generating revenue within a few months without debt impairment, bypassing the months or years it otherwise takes for capital funding to be available.According to The Lancet Oncology Commission’s report presented at the 2015 European Cancer Congress in Vienna, Austria, low and middle income countries have 80 percent of the global cancer burden but only 5 percent of the resources for cancer control.
