first_imgNewcastle United’s manager Rafael Benitez has backed his former side Liverpool to go on and win the Premier League title.Rafa’s men were brushed aside 4-0 by the free-scoring Reds to move six points clear in top spot thanks to goals from Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Fabinho.The win was Jurgen Klopp 100th victory in all competitions and their eighth straight win in the Premier League.And with champions Manchester City slipping to a 2-1 defeat at Leicester City, enabling Tottenham to move up to second, Benitez feels Liverpool have what it takes to win the league for the first time since 1989-90.“Liverpool showed that they are good enough to win the title,” said Benitez in a quote cited by FourFourTwo.“[They have a] very good team, [and] a very good squad so they have very good players on the bench also.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“To win a league title you need to be consistent and they can do it.”Th e former Chelsea boss further highlighted the defensive errors that cost his team the game at Anfield despite keeping clean sheets in each of their last two Premier League matches.“It’s difficult to explain when you lose a game in the way that we lost,” Benitez said.“We did well, we had our chance, we didn’t take it, we made a mistake and gave them hope and belief but still we were in the game against a very good team.“We had some moments where they were pushing but you go in at half-time at 1-0 down, then in the second half, a soft penalty [which saw Salah fouled by Paul Dummett] changed everything.“And now you have to explain why we conceded four goals.”last_img read more

first_img Ministry of Education Announces Registration 2016-2017 for Public Schools in the Turks & Caicos Islands Eagles win again at InterHigh Championships Recommended for you Related Items:clement howell high school, HJ robinson high school, public school, refurbishment Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 08 Jul 2015 – Refurbishment on Government schools has already started despite there not being great interest in the tender process for jobs to fix up the 15 public schools across the country. A budget of $600,000 is nearly doubled what it was last academic year and it is expected to make a major difference in the repair process during this summer break. It was announced that the public would not see too many cosmetics like painting of the facilities but there is in depth work happening, considered far more important, like maintenance to walls, electrical repairs, installment of perimeter fencing for safety, fans and lights will be replaced, public health standards must be met and some plumbing; all new. These jobs are more expensive and will absorb much of the bigger budget allotted by the PNP Administration for the upcoming school year. While there is no work happening in Provo at this time, there is work already started in North and Middle Caicos and South Caicos which between them has six public schools. The biggest of the refurbishment projects is at Clement Howell High School, here in Provo; next is the HJ Robinson High in Grand Turk. Work is forecast to be done in time for school reopening in September.

McGregor twice denied Villareal’s Karl Toko Ekambi in one-to-one situations to secure a vital point for Rangers.Gerrard was quoted on Daily Mail: ”I can’t believe we got Allan for free. I think it was a stroke of genius from Mark Allen,”‘You need to take age and everything into consideration now but if you could knock a decade off Allan, he would be worth a hell of a lot of money.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“He could comfortably be part of most teams. To achieve in the biggest games in any league, you need a top goalie. That is the foundation you build on.””When I decided to take over, that’s an area I was keen to add to. Speaking to our recruitment team, when I knew McGregor was available and keen to come back – desperate to come back – it was a no-brainer for me.”On their upcoming fixtures, Gerrard continued:“When we came back from the international break, we saw this period right up to the Celtic game as a really tough period. But it is full of exciting games, games the players should enjoy and look forward to playing in.”‘The next two fixtures are big for us, six important points, but we need to focus on Hearts first. It would be nice to sit top after the weekend but we have to earn the right. You get nothing this early for it.”last_img read more

The companies would also have to indemnify the city from liability claims in the event a scooter rider is injured within city limits and obtain a permit from the city with accompanying operational fees.“The rapid evolution of this industry is evidence of the popularity of dockless mobility devices as great options for folks who would like to leave their car at home,” Faulconer said. “As with many disruptive new technologies, there are issues that need to be addressed. First and foremost, public safety is our top priority and that will be reflected in these common- sense regulations.”Scooter companies such as Lime, Bird and Razor would have to use geofencing technology to limit scooter speeds to 8 mph in the city’s high- traffic zones like the San Diego Convention Center promenade, Balboa Park, NTC Park and the Embarcadero downtown. Currently, dockless scooters can reach speeds up to roughly 15 mph.The City Council’s Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee plans to discuss the proposed regulations at its 9 a.m. meeting on Oct. 24.“I’m pleased to have worked with Mayor Faulconer to develop important safety standards for the protection of scooter riders and pedestrians,” said City Councilwoman and Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee Member Lorie Zapf. “My goal has always been to slow down the speed of the scooters and address safety concerns. With this proposal I feel confident that we will see changes for the better.” Dan Plante, KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: October 18, 2018 October 18, 2018center_img Dan Plante, KUSI Newsroom, San Diego Mayor Faulconer proposes regulations for dockless scooters Updated: 11:02 PMlast_img read more

first_img November 26, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Forty-two people were arrested on suspicion of illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border after members of the migrant caravan in Tijuana marched toward the border and prompted a five-hour shutdown at the San Ysidro crossing, a Border Patrol official said Monday.San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott told CNN Monday morning that the 42 people, mostly men, were arrested Sunday on the U.S. side of the border.At least three Border Patrol agents were hit with rocks during Sunday’s clash, but none were seriously injured, and agents used tear gas canisters to disperse crowds at the border fence, Scott told CNN.The American Civil Liberties Union released a statement criticizing the decision to use tear gas.“Under no circumstances should CBP be using tear gas on children. This show of violence is outrageous and inhumane,” ACLU Deputy Political Director Lorella Praeli said in a statement. “The migrants at our southern border are human beings, including mothers and small children, who are exercising their legal, human right to seek asylum.”The San Ysidro Port of Entry — the busiest land border crossing in the western hemisphere, according to the federal government — was shut down for around five hours Sunday.The closures of the pedestrian crossing and both the northbound and southbound vehicle crossings began around 11:30 a.m. Sunday after some members of the caravan tried to enter the United States through the San Ysidro Port of Entry’s vehicle lanes, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said.Officials reopened the pedestrian border crossing around 3:45 p.m. Sunday, then reopened vehicle lanes around 5 p.m.President Donald Trump posted a tweet Monday threatening to shut down the border crossing permanently.“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A.,” Trump wrote. “We will close the Border permanently if need be.

Videos posted to Twitter showed caravan members rushing past Mexican federal police who had been blocking them from getting too close to the border.Tijuana Municipal Police detained 39 people Sunday, according to local authorities.Some migrants have been trying to present themselves to United States immigration authorities for asylum, but the U.S. only processes 100 asylum applications a day, leaving thousands on the waiting list.San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer posted a tweet Sunday night urging U.S. and Mexican officials to resolve the situation without closing the border.“It is critical that U.S. and Mexican federal leaders work together to safely resolve the migrant crisis,” the mayor wrote. “Our way of life relies on a safe, secure and functioning border.

Brian Baird visited Oregon Iron Works in Vancouver on Friday to talk about green job creation and his proposed wave-energy legislation.The Clackamas, Ore.-based company, which operates a fabrication plant on the Columbia River-front in Vancouver, is finishing construction on the first of 10 prototype wave-energy buoys it’s building for New Jersey-based Ocean Power Technologies. When completed, the 130-foot-long structures will be installed in the Pacific Ocean about three miles off the coast of Reedsport, Ore.“Here’s an example of jobs being created by the need for renewable energy,” said Baird, D-Vancouver. “I’d like (Washington) to lead the world in the export of renewable energy technology.”The project will bring the company about $3 million to $4 million per buoy and employ about 35 full-time workers, said David Gibson, renewable energy program manager for Oregon Iron Works.Oregon Iron Works officials say they hope that the wave-energy industry will blossom, leading to more job creation and long-term growth for the company. But more research and testing of the nascent technology must first be done to ensure it can compete financially with other forms of renewable energy, Gibson said.last_img read more

first_imgWal-Mart Stores Inc., the largest private employer in the country, plans to start offering health coverage next year to domestic partners of full-time employees — including those in same-sex relationships.The extension, outlined in a postcard sent to workers this week, follows a series of recent court rulings in favor of gay marriage around the country.Though spokesman Randy Hargrove wouldn’t divulge how many people Wal-Mart expects to sign up for the program, he said that more than half of the company’s 1.3 million U.S. associates are covered by the retailer’s health insurance plan.That equates to 1.1 million associates and family members, he said.To qualify for Wal-Mart’s coverage, associates must “live together in an ongoing, exclusive, committed relationship similar to marriage” with a same- or opposite-sex spouse or unmarried partner and “have been together at least 12 months and intend to continue sharing a household indefinitely,” Hargrove said.Significant others must also meet standard requirements – such as being old enough for marriage and unrelated to their partner, he said.“Since we operate in all 50 states, we thought it was important to develop a single definition so we can ensure consistency for all our associates across the country,” Hargrove said.The Bentonville, Ark., retail giant also noted that 2014 comes with a new vision plan, including eye exams, glasses and contacts. Wal-Mart also said employees would see the lowest medical premium increases in years – somewhere between 3 percent and 10 percent from last year, Hargrove said.last_img read more

The study extended from King County to North Marysville in Snohomish County.Across all apartment sizes, the Seattle area’s average asking rent in the second quarter was $1,150.Another firm’s data put Seattle’s rent increases at fourth-highest in the nation, up from sixth just three months earlier, but agrees with the 6 percent growth rate.According to Reis, rents in the Seattle area grew more than twice as fast as the national average of 2.6 percent.Strong job growth has fueled record demand for apartments, pushing vacancy rates down to very low levels.“It’s all about the jobs,” said Kenny Dudunakis, senior partner at Hendricks-Berkadia, one of the nation’s largest apartment-investment advisers.“People love the Fortune 500 companies that are here that seem to be on a perpetual hiring mode,” he said.Another research firm, Dallas-based MPF Research, also reports that apartments in the Seattle-Tacoma area saw a 6 percent increase in effective rent in the second quarter.Within the Seattle region, there’s a wide range of increases. MPF, which samples half the apartments in the area, found annual effective rent increases in the second quarter ranging from 4 percent in Federal Way to 10 percent in Issaquah.last_img read more
