Glendale homeless site may not open

first_imgGLENDALE – For the first time in more than a decade, Glendale could have no winter shelter to save the homeless from the cold this year. No group has applied to run the shelter at the Glendale Armory, which serves homeless people suffering from mental illness and drug addiction. “They have to find someplace to go when there’s inclement weather,” said Bruce Nelson, director of community services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. “If we don’t have (the shelter) there will be people who will suffer exposure and they will get sick.” The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority funds similar shelter programs in Santa Clarita, Sylmar and other parts of the county, said David Howden, a funding manager for the agency. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.This year, no one had applied to run the shelter in Glendale when the deadline passed Sept. 19. It is supposed to open Dec. 1. LAHSA is still accepting applications from any group willing to run the center. Last year, 133 homeless people a night stayed at the center, Howden said. The YMCA of Glendale ran the shelter for several years, but stopped in 2006. The group had to use its own money because LAHSA didn’t provide enough funds, said John Thomas, president and CEO of local YMCA. Volunteers of America ran the winter shelter last year, but that group has not applied to run it this year. Glendale has nearly 300 homeless people on any given night, 79 of them chronically homeless and 85 of them children, according to a report to the city’s Housing Authority. In a report released last week, LAHSA said the San Fernando Valley has 6,411 homeless people every night. PATH Achieve Glendale has applied to the county for funding to start a 24-hour, year-round shelter with 25 beds. But even if approved, the $1million program would not start until next year. The agency already runs a 40-bed shelter on San Fernando Court, but that’s exclusively for participants who go through sobriety screening, not for just any homeless person who would use a winter shelter.

Argentina lurk in the shadows

first_img Tags: FIFA world Cup 2018 Argentina lost the 2014 final to Germany.For all his individual accolades, Lionel Messi’s most enduring legacy will only be cemented if he can emulate his great compatriot, Diego Armando Maradona, by guiding Argentina to World Cup glory.A trophy magnet that has won an unmatched 32 major trophies with Barcelona, Messi needs to taste the ultimate of all triumphs to stand toe to toe with Pele and Maradona in the pantheon of football greats.Messi is yet to win a World Cup with ArgentinaUntil South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014, many a football pundits thought Champions League football is comparable, if not supreme to the World Cup.Messi’s struggles with Argentina and Cristiano Ronaldo’s failure to lift Portugal into a proper global force has many convinced the World Cup is the pinnacle.With five world player of the year accolades to their names, the pair have dominated global football for a decade. But the question of who wins a record sixth Ballon D’Or to gain ascendancy in their contest for individual supremacy, will be the least of Argentina’s worries when they commence their campaign in Group D against Iceland.Negotiating the Group of Death due to the unpredictable nature of Croatia, Nigeria and Iceland is top priority for Messi and his beleaguered coach Jorge Sampaoli. The reality is this pair ought to be at the top of their wits if Argentina is to thrive.Sampaoli earned plaudits for turning Chile into a feared world power but he has failed to utilise Argentina’s full attacking arsenal.A team boasting Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala and Sergio Aguero as options for a supporting cast for Messi, should be striking fear in opponents.Higuein (left) and Dybala (right) are team mates at Juventus.Unfortunately, Sampaoli is yet to find the correct combination. Finding a way of accommodating Messi, Dybala and Higuain in the same starting line up, given the latter two’s close understanding at Juventus is key to Argentina’s success in Russia.At the end of the day, alibis like Mascherano’s aforementioned attempt at reverse psychology are not admissible to fans in Argentina. They will expect an improvement on their position as losing finalists at Brazil 2014.Javier Mascherano, Argentina’s most senior player was spot on in assessing their World Cup opponents.“Croatia are a first class side with top players in midfield….. And Nigeria are quite well known to us, as we’ve met in the last World Cups. They are tough, not just because of their physical power, but because their disorganisation has the effect of disorganising you as a rival. And that’s when teams like ours suffer most. In disorder.”Comments last_img read more

Cannot give quota for Muslims, says Maharashtra government

first_imgThe Maharashtra government has once again ruled out reservations for Muslims.Speaking during a debate on a calling attention motion raised by the Opposition, Minorities Development Minister Vinod Tawde ruled out reservation for the community on religious grounds, citing various court rulings.The community is already receiving benefits under the Other Backward Class category and there was no need for a religion-based reservation, the Minister said.The issue was raised in the Council on Friday by members of the Opposition. Allegations flew on both sides, with each claiming to have done much for the community.Leader of the Congress Sharad Ranpise said the community must be given the promised 5% reservation in jobs and educational institutions.In response, the Minister asked what was the need for the community to have reservation on religious grounds when it was anyway getting benefits under various schemes. “The government is sensitive towards the demands of all communities. But there is no provision in existing laws to give reservation on the basis of religion,” he said. “What has the Congress done for the community when it was in the power? At least our government has remained committed to the development of all sections and classes of the society.”The minister’s dismissal of the motion agitated the Opposition members, who entered the well of the House. The commotion forced the Chairman to call off proceedings for some time.Mr. Tawde said the Congress is cornered after its recent defeat at the hands of the Vanchit BahujanAghadi in the Lok Sabha elections. “This alliance — of Dalits and Muslims — has hurt the Congress the most. It is trying to make up for that.” In the winter session of the legislature last year, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis too had ruled out reservation for Muslims on religious grounds citing Supreme Court and High Court rulings. Muslim legislators had then alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government was deliberately scuttling quota demands for the community, which was granted reservation by the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party. The 5% reservation granted to the community by the Congress-NCP in 2014 was struck down by the courts along with the ordinance that had cleared 16% quota to theMarathas.last_img read more

first_img“Also by what logic can the Board decide about full “Also by what logic can the Board decide about full membership? Mumbai is a cricketing hub and has won Ranji Trophy 41 times, Maharashtra has maximum districts within the area and Vidarbha has the maximum infrastructure. On what basis full and associate membership will be given,” the former BCCI chief wondered. He said the recommendation of IPL franchisee representatives be given a place in its governing council would go against conflict of interest issues, the very basis on which the Lodha committee was formed. “The Committee says two members from IPL franchises should be in the IPL Governing Council. According to me this entire matter went to the Supreme Court due to conflict of interest because N Srinivasan (former BCCI chief), as owner of Chennai Super Kings, was sitting in the IPL GC. Because of that the Lodha committee was formed and conflict of interest rules were framed. “This is a situation which creates clear conflict as decisions taken at IPL Governing Council are about IPL franchises. I cannot sit as a judge for my own cause. “How can you have an IPL franchisee sitting (in IPL GC)? They (Lodha Panel) says by rotation every year two franchises should come in. That means franchises debarred for misconduct can (also) come and sit. This cannot be implemented as it is a clear case of conflict,” he elaborated. Manohar explained that his suggestion to the BCCI for three independent persons with expertise in administration and finance was kept in abeyance pending the Lodha panel recommendations, which had then not been submitted to the Supreme Court. Manohar said he had no issue over the size of the BCCIs apex committee, but said nowhere in the world do active players sit on an administrative panel. “I have no issues on number of persons in the apex committee, but nowhere in the world players sit on the board of directors. Its also wrong to tell the Board you fund another association created by the players. “Even where FICA (world players body) exists they dont sit on the management board. They are consulted on cricketing matters. We (BCCI) also have committee of cricketers who deal with cricketing matters. (MORE) PTI SSR ARS AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more
