8 points ahead, Man City will prove hard to catch in Premier League

first_imgLATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Despite the victory margin, City needed some luck.Kevin De Bruyne’s opening goal in the 19th minute was followed by a contentiously awarded penalty when Nacho Monreal was adjudged to have bundled over Raheem Sterling. Sergio Aguero converted from the spot, then a third goal from Gabriel Jesus should have been ruled out for offside against David Silva in the build-up.“If … they have a decisions for them like that (third goal),” Wenger said, “they will be unstoppable.”Any hopes Arsenal had of a first title since 2004 are fading fast. Arsenal has lost four of six away games in the league for the first time since 1981 and Wenger’s team trails City by 12 points.City has scored 38 goals and won 10 out of 11 games so far. It achieved its latest win after a tough Champions League trip to Napoli where Guardiola’s side won 4-2.ADVERTISEMENT Son Heung-min took over from former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung as the highest-scoring Premier League player from Asia with his 20th goal for Tottenham.The South Korea forward pounced on a poor clearance to curl in a shot from just inside the area in the 64th minute at Wembley Stadium as a depleted Tottenham relied on a grittier performance to see off Palace after a slick win over Champions League holder Real Madrid.___EVERTON RECOVERYEverton was facing its sixth straight loss in all competitions — and fourth under caretaker manager David Unsworth — after goals by Richarlison and Christian Kabasele put Watford 2-0 ahead by the 64th minute.But three minutes later, Everton’s recovery began. Oumar Niasse pulled a goal back, substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed home an equalizer in the 74th and Leighton Baines netted from the spot in stoppage time to complete a 3-2 victory. A first win in nine matches lifted Everton from 19th to 15th in the 20-team standings.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Palestinian football officials get court date for FIFA case It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours View comments Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ There is still more than two-thirds of the season to go but City is looking a formidable attacking unit that’s proving hard to thwart.

first_imgThe Pan-African banking group Ecobank has won the Euromoney Excellence Awards for ‘Best Bank for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Africa’ and ‘Best Bank for Transaction Services in Africa.’ The bank also won two country awards in Ghana and Malawi as ‘Best Bank’ making it four awards to be won by the bank.According to an Ecobank Liberia branch statement issued yesterday in Monrovia, the prestigious award was presented to the bank at the 25th anniversary of the Euromoney Awards dinner, held on Wednesday, July 6, at the Tower of London, United Kingdom.The ceremony was attended by a delegation from Liberia, as well as over 500 CEOs, senior executives of winning institutions and members of the Euromoney team.According to one of the Euromoney officials, whose statement was contained in the statement released by the bank, the 2016 awards focused on commercial and investment banks that demonstrated ability to deliver the different parts of their firms to meet clients’ needs and adapt to market and regulatory conditions.The statement also quoted the Euromoney official that the 2016 awards also considered candidates who might not be global in scale, but are truly world class in the way they are run and in the services they deliver to clients.“The award was in recognition of the bank’s progress in the enhancement of its operations through its ‘CSR’ initiative, as well as commitment to rising the standards of customer experience through its many services include Western Union,” a Euromoney official said.Receiving the award on behalf of the Pan-African banking group in London, Ms. Julie Essiam, Ecobank Foundation Chief Executive Officer, said that at the bank they are passionate about transforming the communities in which they serve across Africa.Ms. Essiam said: “Through strong partnerships like our work with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, we are making long-term positive change. Our award for corporate social responsibility is gratifying and it demonstrates the powerful impact that the private sector makes on development in Africa.” She assured that the Bank will sustain the growth momentum while noting that the award is an honor not only for Ecobank, but for employees and customers who have been instrumental to the bank’s success.Also speaking, Ecobank’s Transaction Services Group Head Patrick Gutmann said the award highlights their growing reputation as one of the leading transaction banks in Africa.“We provide innovative transaction services in the 36 African countries in which we operate, and this award shows that we are not only delivering this service, but excelling at it; and this is the second consecutive year that Ecobank subsidiaries in Malawi and Ghana are being honored for their performance,” Gutmann said.The Euromoney Awards for Excellence single out financial institutions for 25 global awards in banking and capital markets, as well as the best banks and securities houses in nearly 100 countries. The awards have run since 1992 and take place in July.

Scrap metal trade resumes next month after ban – Minister

first_imgAfter several months of delays, Government has decided to reopen the scrap metal trade next month on a limited basis to facilitate the clearance of some of the accumulated scrap metal across the country.While a date for the resumption of the trade has not been announced, Business Minister Dominic Gaskin told Guyana Times on Monday that the date depended on several important factors.Business Minister Dominic GaskinThe Minister disclosed that a meeting was held with exporters and dealers a few weeks ago to introduce them to a new system that the Business Ministry was trying to implement.According to him, it is a software system that was specially designed to help the Ministry to monitor and regulate the trade once it resumes, creating a level playing field for all.“We’ve met with them, we’ve discussed it with them and we have arranged some training sessions for them to familiarise themselves with how the system will work, and we are looking to do a little resumption starting next month. I can’t give you an exact date, because it depends on a lot of things,” he explained.Gaskin said with the resumption of the trade, it would give the Ministry the opportunity to test the system to ensure that it was working, and also that it would help to clear some of the accumulated scrap metal that has been legitimately acquired from some of the exporters or dealers’ yards.Government had approved a restart of the scrap metal trade in Guyana in February 2017 after closing down the industry one year prior to that. The main reason for this was to allow exporters to ship out the existing stock for a limited period of three months, as well as ensure that there was no pile-up of these materials.In September 2016, Cabinet accepted the proposal of Minister Gaskin to restart the scrap metal trade on the basis of a new menu of measures being put in place. This included putting together new guidelines and regulations. The trade had been suspended on June 15, 2015 to facilitate a forensic audit.Gaskin had said that the audit report advised that reforms be introduced into the system, including legislative amendments, new regulations, and smarter monitoring of the trade. And the Guyana Scrap Metal Association (GMRA) later came out stating its support for the new measures.In 2016, Ram and McRae, Chartered Accountants, produced a report on its findings from the probe, revealing a string of irregularities, including the mishandling of packing procedures for scrap and the expenditure of millions of dollars in the Scrap Metal Unit within the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA).To this end, Government removed oversight for the trade from the CH&PA under the Communities Ministry to the Business Ministry.LegitimacyMeanwhile, on another issue, Gaskin said that the Business Ministry was trying to determine the legitimacy of the newly-formed Guyana Metal Dealers and General Exporters Association (GMD&GEA). The Association has since taken the Government to task for the continued ban on the scrap metal trade.But Minister Gaskin told this publication that the Government recognised the GMRA, and was still trying to understand who the new Association really represented and whether there was some conflict between the two groupings. Until such time, the Government will continue to recognise the GMRA only.“I am not sure that I know enough about them and their membership. There is already an Association. I am not sure how the membership is divided, because one is claiming the same members the other one has. We need to get to the meat of that,” Gaskin related.The Minister said he did not want to mix the two up, and Government was just trying to find out more about the GMD&GEA before it decided to engage the body in any serious discussion regarding the sector.“I am just trying to find out who the body is before I engage them, because I don’t want to enter any discussion with a body that represents the industry and then find out that it is not so, or [that they do not] represent the members. I really need to get a better sense of who they are and who their members are,” he added.last_img read more

20% of contracts to small businesses next year – Govt

first_imgTwenty per cent of Government contracts will be awarded to small businesses from next year, as moves are currently afoot to modify the procurement process to facilitate the execution of a provision in the Small Business Act which allows for this to happen.Business Minister Dominic GaskinBusiness Minister Dominic Gaskin told a year-end press conference of the Small Business Bureau (SBB) that the process should come on stream by the second quarter of the New Year.He said the proposed mechanism is to assess the current procurement process to determine if extra points are needed to be given for registered small businesses and on what criteria.“The idea is to create a system to allow us to assess the value of contracts and percentage of contracts that actually go to small businesses and then to intervene if necessary to provide an extra incentive for small businesses,” he explained.Gaskin noted too that the modified system would have to be integrated with the recently established Public Procurement Commission (PPC) which will be taking over the role of the Cabinet to review suggestions made by the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB).The Business Minister explained that the authorities are likely to run a pilot programme in the first quarter of the year to assess whether the proposed mechanism is workable.Thereafter, the system will be extended to the Ministries which conduct their own procurement process for particular goods or services.Minister of State Joseph Harmon had explained that by activating this provision, everyone will “get a piece of the pie”.“If the country gives out $10 billion in contracts per year, 20 per cent of that should go to small contractors,” he had stated.For years, small businesses have been complaining about larger enterprises getting the bulk of the contracts being awarded by Government.The 20 per cent of contracts will be awarded yearly and the Business Minister had previously estimated that it would amount to some $15 billion.last_img read more

Whirlwind finish

first_img“This had to be the wildest Daytona 500 I’ve ever watched,” Childress said. “I kept my eyes shut there for a little while it was so wild.” It took several moments for NASCAR to declare the winner, finally giving it to Harvick and spoiling what would have been the biggest victory of the 48-year-old Martin’s career. “I really wanted to win that thing,” Martin said. “They were going to have to pry it out of my fingers, man.” Harvick did just that, never letting off the gas as he charged from 29th to first in 22 laps. “My go-kart experience over the winter paid off, because I didn’t let off the floor and we just kept hitting things and the wall and bouncing off everything,” Harvick said. “But man, this is the Daytona 500. Can you believe it?” With the checkered flag in sight, Martin simply came up short – a mere length of a car hood – in a wild, wreck-filled finish. Harvick beat the sentimental favorite to win NASCAR’s premier race Sunday, six years to the day after Dale Earnhardt was killed on the final lap. Just days after his death, it was Harvick who was hired to replace him, and he rewarded Richard Childress with the car owner’s second Daytona 500 victory – Earnhardt won the other in 1998. After a cheating scandal nearly ruined the Great American Race, it was just the finish NASCAR needed to put racing back in the spotlight. Five teams were busted for breaking the rules during Speedweeks – including two-time winner Michael Waltrip, who broke the NASCAR code by tampering with his fuel before qualifying and humiliated Toyota in its Nextel Cup debut. The scandal put the sport in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, and NASCAR ratcheted up its penalty process to prevent its biggest race from turning into a joke. Finishes like this one might fix everything. “Anytime there’s a good race on the racetrack, it helps mend things,” Harvick said. “But I think it’s still going to take a little bit to get over some of the issues that happened.” For at least one night, the talk will be of the victory Martin had in his sight and the way Harvick yanked it from him. Martin, making his 23rd attempt at a 500 win, could see the checkered flag when Harvick barreled along the outside of him. Just as Harvick pushed into the lead, Busch wiggled behind them and bumped into Matt Kenseth to start a melee. Kenseth was spinning and Greg Biffle was, too. Bowyer flipped onto his roof and through the grass, flames shooting through the windshield. But Harvick and Martin continued to race side by side, waiting for NASCAR to call for a caution. When it finally came, Harvick and Martin were at the finish line, and Harvick was just barely ahead. The winning margin was .123 seconds, and NASCAR had to review the tape just to be sure who was going to Victory Lane. Harvick never doubted the outcome. “I got so excited at the end of the race, and I knew we had won,” he said. “I just didn’t realize how excited I was, and I punched the dang mirror out of the car. Just overexcited, I guess. Knocked the mirror right out.” Martin finished second, followed by Jeff Burton, Harvick’s teammate, and Mike Wallace, who raced his way into the 500. Fifth place was rookie David Ragan, the kid who replaced Martin when he left Roush Racing this winter after 19 seasons. Martin left the powerhouse Roush team because he wanted to ease his way into retirement, and he got the opportunity to do it with a partial schedule at Ginn Racing – a second-tier team bought last year by a Florida land developer trying to satisfy his love of NASCAR. The decision was questioned by those who wondered if Bobby Ginn could give the ultra-competitive Martin cars capable of winning. Boy, did he ever. “I haven’t even seen the finish. It is what it is,” Martin said. “We were inches or feet or whatever. We were short. It was so close, but it was second. I let it slip away, slip through my fingers, and I’m fine with that. I am very proud of what this team did for me this weekend.” Martin led 26 laps and was out front when a five-car accident brought racing to a standstill with five laps to go. It made for an agonizing 11 minutes, 39 seconds for Martin, who sat idly in his car trying to plot his strategy during the stoppage. When racing resumed with two laps to go, Martin seemingly needed only to hold off Busch in a sprint to the finish. He weaved high and then low to block Busch’s attempts, which may have briefly distracted him from Harvick. Before the frantic finish, the race was shaping up to be a fight between Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch, who combined to lead 130 of the 200 laps. But they wrecked each other while leading the race with 48 laps to go. Stewart was leading coming out of the fourth turn when his Chevrolet wiggled just a bit. Busch, closing fast, couldn’t avoid running into Stewart’s bumper, and both cars careened into the outside wall. Busch, who led 95 laps in his bid to give car owner Roger Penske his first Daytona 500 win, was heartbroken. “We both got taken out of the Daytona 500 on my mistake,” he said from inside his car. “I made the first mistake. I apologize to (Stewart), but I know that doesn’t mean anything now.” Stewart, who led early but dropped to the back of the field after a pit road miscue, led 35 laps and just had surged back to the front when he wrecked. It dropped Stewart to 0 for 9 in Daytona 500s. “It just wasn’t meant to be today,” he said with a smile. “I’m still disappointed, but we’ve got a lot to be proud of. We had an awesome Speedweeks.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Enterprise plan outlines aims for continued business supports and services in Donegal

first_imgOngoing plans to encourage, assist and develop small and microenterprises in Donegal are the central theme to the county’s new Local Enterprise Development Plan 2017-2020 set to be launched in Letterkenny next week by Local Enterprise Office, Donegal.The plan will be formally unveiled by Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr. Gerry McMonagle at a lunch-time function in the Public Service Centre on Tuesday November 7th.According to Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney, the ambitious plan sets out strategic objectives for the Local Enterprise Office in Donegal for the four year period 2017 -2020 and establishes clear actions, activities and outputs for 2017. “These are all set within the context of the vision statement and mission of the Local Enterprise Office and while they will certainly be challenging, they are nonetheless achievable.”Mr. Tunney explained that the Plan sets out the LEO’s vision and mission and the strategic and operational objectives it hopes to achieve during the life of the plan.“It also identifies Key Upgrade Goals – goals that require either a new approach or collective engagement. These goals and the operational objectives for 2017 have clearly defined timescales, outcomes and outputs and will be the core areas of delivery of the LEO on an annual basis.”Collective engagement, he added, will be a vital ingredient in making the delivery of the aims and objectives of the plan a reality. “The Local Enterprise Office Donegal acknowledges that – while it is the designated primary agency for promoting and supporting entrepreneurship and the small and microbusiness sector at local level – it cannot fulfil this role without the co-operation and support of the other enterprise agencies, both local and national, and with the integrated support of the other sections within Donegal County Council.”Donegal County Council’s Chief Executive, Seamus Neely, said the plan demonstrates the increasingly important role the Local Enterprise Office will play in the direction anddelivery of economic development in the county.“The Service Level Agreement between Enterprise Ireland and the Local Authority identifies the potential role the LEO can play in the broader economic development of the county and the integration of enterprise development within the broader local authority system.Through the synergies which this model can facilitate, the Local Enterprise Office Donegal will have an increasingly important role in the direction and delivery of economic development, as well as enterprise promotion, support and development in the county.”As well as opportunities, the Plan to be published next week also outlines some of the challenges the LEO believes currently face the business community within the county. “More than 95% of the businesses in the county are micro businesses and it is incumbent on all the enterprise development agencies to keep in mind the critical role these businesses play at local level in providing employment and in sustaining local communities,” Michael Tunney said.He cited Brexit as an example of a potential threat that would need careful consideration, action and support over the months and years ahead.“The full impact and challenges arising from the decision of the UK government to leave the EU are likely to be known and active during the lifetime of this plan. As of December 2016, 76% of the grant aided clients (183 firms) of the Donegal LEO were exporting and 93% of these were exporting exclusively to the UK.There is no doubt that the risks and potential adverse consequences for our local firms in Donegal are significant and require immediate actions to support them reduce this dependency in the short term and increase their resilience.” Tuesday’s launch will focus on the positive and the ongoing aspiration to help Donegal businesses overcome obstacles to grow onto the global stage.With that in mind Rick LeVert from Kinnegar Brewing will be in attendance to tell the Kinnegar story and how they availed of a range of Local Enterprise Office supports and services as the business grew and developed.“The Local Enterprise Office will work with organisations to maximise the potential of the small and micro business sector in the county. Over the four year period of the plan we will seek to increase the number of local businesses looking to increase their management capability, strengthen their sustainability and to enter export markets,” Mr Tunney concluded.To find out more about the range of supports and services on offer to small businesses at the Local Enterprise Office log on to the website localenterprise.ie/Donegal or contact the office on 0749160735Enterprise plan outlines aims for continued business supports and services in Donegal was last modified: November 1st, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalEnterpriseLEOplanlast_img read more

DRIVERS WARNED AFTER TYRE PRANK ALMOST CAUSES SERIOUS ROAD ACCIDENT

first_imgTwo young women had a lucky escape after an apparent prank caused a crash in Ballybofey.Two large tyres were left in the middle of the road.The two women were returning from work at around 11.30pm when two large tyres were placed in the middle of the road.The women crashed into the tyres but luckily neither were seriously injured. The incident happened at a sharp bend at the top of McFeeley’s Brae in the townland of Navnney.Driving conditions were dark and there was no time for the driver to break.Although no harm was caused to the occupants of the vehicle it appears the tyres were left there with the intention of causing damage or injury.The Gardai were made aware of the incident and had to come to remove the obstruction as the tyres were too heavy for the women to remove. One of the women, who asked not to be named, appealed to drivers to be vigilant in case of copycat incidents around the county. DRIVERS WARNED AFTER TYRE PRANK ALMOST CAUSES SERIOUS ROAD ACCIDENT was last modified: February 14th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeycrashGardaiPrankTYRESlast_img read more

Injured Dedryck Boyata to miss Celtic’s Champions League qualifying campaign

first_img Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata 1 Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata faces up to three months out with a knee injury.The Belgium international – who established himself as a regular starter in the second half of last season – will miss Celtic’s Champions League qualifying campaign after suffering medial ligament damage during a friendly draw with Slavia Prague on Tuesday.Assistant manager Chris Davies said: “It looks like a pretty bad knee injury really. The timeline we are looking at at the minute is up to three months, but we’re always optimistic and we will see what we can do.”Davies was speaking at Glasgow Airport as Celtic flew out to Dublin for Saturday’s friendly against Shamrock Rovers without the former Manchester City centre-back.“It’s really disappointing for Dedryck,” he said. “Obviously he did really well in the last six months of last season and was in good form and got an international call-up and things like that.“We are all disappointed for him but there’s no doubt about the work he’s got to do in rehab and come back even stronger and better.”Boyata’s injury will pave the way for Jozo Simunovic and Erik Sviatchenko to line up in central defence when Celtic begin their Champions League qualifiers against Linfield in Belfast on July 14.But Celtic do not have many experienced alternatives. Manager Brendan Rodgers talked up left-back Kieran Tierney as a possible Scotland centre-back and the 20-year-old has played in a back three for club and country, as has right-back Mikael Lustig for Celtic.Natural centre-back Jamie McCart is also in Celtic’s pre-season training squad but the 20-year-old has only made one substitute appearance for the club, although he played regularly on loan for Inverness in the second half of last season.When asked whether Boyata’s injury would influence Celtic’s transfer priorities, Davies said: “With Dedryck being out that’s obviously something we are aware of now and something that we will discuss. We will see what needs to be done.”Davies added: “Like we have said before, we want to retain the players we have got here at the minute, we are happy with what we have got. If the right player becomes available and we can do the right business for the club, then we will look at that.”last_img read more
