Warner takes TTFA to court for US$2.4m

first_imgFormer CONCACAF president Jack Warner has launched legal proceedings against the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) in relation to loans incurred during the period he served as advisor to the association.According to reports, Warner is suing the football body with the hope of recovering a sum somewhere in the region of US$2.4m. Based on filings, Warner claims the sum was accrued over the course of 15 years.The loans are believed to be directly related to the TTFA’s expenses during a period that spanned the national team’s successful qualification to the 2006 World Cup. Warner’s legal claim states that the TTFA has always acknowledged the debts but never repaid them.“These accounts were published after the date of both letters from president Raymond Tim Kee, who had on two separate occasions acknowledged the debt to the claimant…At no time did the claimant inform the defendant that they were no longer under an obligation to repay the debt.”Warner is seeking repayment of the aforementioned US$2.4m plus interest.The former FIFA official was recently at the centre of a lawsuit filed in New York court on behalf of regional football body CONCACAF. On that occasion, the judge ruled that the former official pay a US$79 million penalty stemming from the FIFA bribery scandal.(Sportsmax).last_img read more

Browns looking into twitter photos posted by WR Bess

first_imgDavone BessCLEVELAND (AP) — Browns wide receiver Davone Bess has posted a potentially incriminating photograph on his Twitter account that could jeopardize his future with the team — and possibly lead to NFL discipline.Bess, who capped a disappointing first season with Cleveland by missing the final two games for personal reasons, posted a photo on Thursday morning on his Twitter page of a small package containing what appears to be marijuana. Some of the green-and-brown colored substance is out of the bag and on a table. The photo has since been deleted.A Browns spokesman said the team “is aware of the photos and looking further into the situation, and will deal with the matter internally.”NFL spokesman Greg Aiello had no comment beyond saying the league was aware of the photo.This is the second time a photo associated with Bess has brought him under scrutiny.Last month, a photo posted on his Instagram account showed Bess sitting on an outdoor deck and lighting a cigar or possibly a marijuana joint while he sat next to a picture of reggae legend Bob Marley and with a Rastafarian flag draped around the wide receivers’ shoulders.The Browns traded for Bess on draft day last year, swapping picks with Miami to acquire the dependable slot receiver. Cleveland’s front office immediately signed the 28-year-old to a three-year, $11.5 million contract extension through 2016. That deal includes $5.75 million guaranteed and Bess is scheduled to make $3.06 million in 2014.Touted as a sure-handed receiver, Bess finished with career-lows in catches (42) and yards (362) for the Browns, who went 4-12 and fired coach Rob Chudzinski hours after the season finale against Pittsburgh. Bess also hurt the Browns with several drops and he muffed a punt in Kansas City that snuffed out a possible upset of the then-unbeaten Chiefs.When Bess didn’t appear at practice on Dec. 19, Chudzinski said the player was dealing with “a personal matter.” Two days later, the Browns placed Bess on the reserve/non-football illness list, citing personal reasons.The likable Bess was always accessible to the media during the regular season and willing to discuss not only his struggles but the team’s as well.Bess spent five seasons with the Dolphins. He caught at least 51 passes each year and had his best season in 2010, when he had 79 receptions for 820 yards and five touchdowns.___AP NFL website:  www.pro32.ap.orglast_img read more

Gautam Gambhir reveals he was asked to plead guilty to Shane Watson elbowing incident…

first_imgAdvertisement b12yhNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs56vjjvWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E3xi( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) dpsWould you ever consider trying this?😱Can your students do this? 🌚4emRoller skating! Powered by Firework Cricket and sledging go hand in hand and this becomes more interesting when the two best teams – India and Australia take on each other. Since Australia are famous for sledging and Indian players faced it many a time, former India payer Gautam Gambhir has recently revealed such kind of incident.Advertisement The incident took place during a Test match between Indian and Australia in Bangalore when former Australia captain Ricky Ponting tried to sledge him while fielding at silly point. He mocked Gambhir on his batting, citing that it had no spark.Advertisement “Ricky Ponting in 2008. When Anil Kumble was the captain, in that series where I got a double hundred. In the 1st test match at Bangalore, he said that I had not sent the world on fire while I was batting and he was fielding at silly point,” Gautam Gambhir told on Stars Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’.However, Gautam Gambhir is known for his straight forward comments – be it on Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni’s cricketing career or the current situation in the country. He revealed how he shut Ricky Ponting down with his reply by reminding him of his poor show in India. Ponting failed to impress against India. In 14 Tests matches, he had an average of 26.48 and managed only 1 out his 41 Test century in India as well.Advertisement “And I said ‘Neither have you to be honest in India. You have been a bunny’. And his record says that as well that he has been a bunny in India.” Gambhir added.Gautam Gambhir, on the other hand, had topped scored with 463 runs from 3 matches and also smashed a double hundred. He also spoke about his banter with former all-rounder Shane Watson during the same series. In the 3rd Test match in Delhi Gambhir elbowed Watson while taking a run after a verbal altercation.After that incident, Gambhir pleaded guilty to a charge of not conducting play “within the spirit of the game as well as within the laws of cricket” and he was banned for a Test match also. However, Gambhir has revealed that it wasn’t intentional and he agreed to admit it on the suggestion of the then-coach Gary Kirsten.“Shane Watson! And the reason is I didn’t do that intentionally. Actually, I got banned after that game. A lot of people say that I elbowed him, but I didn’t do that purposely. When I was going for the hearing to the match, Gary Kirsten told me to accept it as it is Chris Broad. He will give you the extra sympathy and he is not going to ban you. I went inside with Gary Kirsten and he asked if you accept your mistake. I said ‘Yes’ and he said you are banned,” Gautam Gambhir concluded.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comALSO READ:BCCI clarifies its stance on Asia Cup and IPL 2020Steve Smith reveals why IPL is the ‘best tournament’ he’s been a part of!

Open House at New School

first_imgThe New School of Monmouth County will be hosting an Open House on Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m. to noon. Located in Holmdel, The New School of Monmouth County is one of New Jersey’s has successfully educated scores of children since 1969. At The New School of Monmouth County small, multi-aged classrooms provide an intimate setting where students receive individualized attention from teachers, learn from each other, are responsible for each other, and gain a new perspective on what it means to belong to a group larger than just one’s peers. Leadership skills and empathy are learned from teaching younger children, and self-confidence develops from sharing with older students. Cooperation—an invaluable asset in today’s business world—is fostered from the moment the children start their education at The New School.The school utilizes project-based learning which takes into consideration the input of students. With this approach, students reach a deeper understanding of the subjects being taught and are often found exploring these subjects on their own accord long after the school day has ended. Project-based learning allows the children to be self-motivated thinkers who will look beyond the basic material that is placed before them.Children from The New School don’t have any assigned homework, so they have time after school for family togetherness and to do what children do best— which is play. This downtime is so often undervalued in our society, but provides young minds the opportunity to think freely, explore the world around them and use their imagination. For more information contact The New School at (732) 787-7900 or visit the school web site at www.the-new-school.com.last_img read more

New Cell Tower Raises Concerns in Little Silver

first_imgThe installation replaced and greatly increased the height of an aging tower of approximately 60 feet and will serve the borough’s emergency services and public works and the state police and county hotlines. Verizon, which had previously proposed a tower atop a downtown commercial building, instead funded the construction of the tower in exchange for a reduced rent for placing its antennas there. The estimated cost to install the tower, had the borough funded it, would have been $150,000. “It’s not a beautiful thing,” said Mayor Robert Neff. He added that he had tried to get the word out during the discussion and planning stages of the tower, but even he hadn’t expected the tower to be quite so prominent.Prior to the installation, the police chief said he had brought an independent company in to do a study on the potential health effects associated with the tower. “The fact that our governing body thought this was the best look is insane,” Holmgren said. “At this point, I think what everyone wants is for Verizon to not be part of it. The second thing is, if they need to keep it erected then they need to make it prettier.” By Jenna O’Donnell |LITTLE SILVER – Concerned residents are urging borough officials to find a way to rid their neighborhood of a newly erected cellular tower many of them deemed an eyesore and a potential health concern.During a workshop and council meetings that lasted late into Monday night, angry residents lambasted the mayor and council for agreeing to let Verizon install a bulky cellular tower close to residents’ homes and Markham Place School – and for not accurately notifying them of what the new construction would entail.“I support a regular communications tower for the safety of our town,” said Alicia Holmgren, a borough resident whose property is 200 feet from the tower. “But that is not for the safety of our town at all. That is for Verizon and that is for revenue. I’m very disappointed in every single person who looked at those plans and thought that this was a good decision.”Verizon installed the 95-foot communications tower Wednesday, May 17 as part of an upgrade meant to address some of the “dead spots” in town that had been an ongoing issue for first responders, according to Chief of Police, Daniel Shaffery. Yet residents were less thrilled with the savings and more worried about the safety, aesthetics and location of the tower. Several pointed out the unknown health risks associated with radio waves and how that could affect children at the school or in the homes nearby, while others said their property values would suffer from the proximity. Most, including the mayor and council, agreed that the tower was ugly.center_img Residents who measured the distance of the tower from their yards and homes said it was built 448 feet from Markham Place School and about 80 feet from homes with children.June 2015 photo of the Little Silver Town Hall with former cellphone tower.Holmgren, who spoke to a lawyer, said she suspected the town was buying time, and that once Verizon goes live at the tower there would be no way to get it turned off. “I’m trying to get an emergency meeting scheduled for next week so we can plead our case one more time before the tower is turned on,” she said. “We work here,” Shaffery said. “Obviously, that was a concern of ours. If it was built by me (my house) I’d probably be upset about it as well. But we do work here and there is nothing definitive that says this causes (health problems).”Neff and members of the borough council agreed to move forward with residents’ requests to pay an independent third party to monitor radio waves from the tower to ensure they are within the limits agreed upon with Verizon. They also agreed to have the borough attorney look over the contract with Verizon to find out what the penalties would be to sever ties with the company. Holmgren, who started the Facebook group “Little Silver Citizens Against the Cell Tower” in hopes of getting more people involved, said she and others felt misled by the public information that had been released about the tower and disappointed in the decision-making that lead to it. One example, she noted, was a plan approved in Sea Bright where the cell tower and base resemble a sailboat mast and lifeguard stand.Borough officials were not sure what options were available, but assured residents they would explore their concerns and requests.“Please come back to the next meeting,” said Councilman Dane Mihlon, who noted that many of these discussions had happened before, but with less public participation. “I really wish you were all here a year ago.”“We’ll try to be responsive,” Neff added. “Honestly, I don’t think any of us expected this. We’ll see if there’s something that can be done.”This article was first published in the May 25-June 1, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Youth employment a priority for SA, Nene tells IMF

first_img10 October 2014The South African government is offering incentives to the private sector as a way of encouraging businesses to employ young people and reduce high levels of unemployment amongst the population group.Speaking at the International Monetary Fund-World Bank discussion sessions prior to the annual meetings taking place in Washington, D.C. in the US from 10 to 12 October, South African Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene said South Africa faces the triple challenges of unemployment, inequality and poverty and any structural reforms within the country have to take this into account.Nene was part of a panel of policy makers discussing “Challengers of Job-Rich and Inclusive Growth: Growth and Reform Challenges”. The panel included Nigerian Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey, Indonesian Finance Minister Muhammad Chatib Basr and International Labour Organization’s Deputy Director-General for Policy Sandra Polaski.“But in the process you have to go through is a painful process. Some of the decisions you have to take are tough decisions that might actually have an impact. Without the pain you are unlikely to address these problems,’ said Nene.However, in making these structural reforms or transformations, Nene said South Africa is making sure the process does not have drastic effects on citizens. He said government is bringing on board the youth who are the actual victims of unemployment in the country.“Businesses will get credit for employing young people and at the same time we are creating an environment that is conducive for the business to employ young people. Our plan is simple: reduce the cost of doing business whilst reducing the cost of living of the poor.’The South African government implemented the employment tax incentive scheme in January 2014 aimed at encouraging businesses to employ young people. The incentive reduces employers’ cost of hiring as the government pays half the costs that the employer incurs in employing a young person.Nene said such schemes had to be implemented even though some quarters resisted them; they were part of the “painful decisions” the government had to make. Some unions were against the implementation of the employment tax incentive, fearing companies would fire older workers in favour of younger ones.There was consensus among the panelists that structural reforms such as improving education and having labour laws that were not too stringent, as well as developing infrastructure, were among the best ways to grow an economy. But they agreed that the one size fits all approach is not feasible.Okonjo-Iweala said structural reforms were country-specific and that implementing them took time — something citizens did not take kindly to. “We all need structural reform but the point is, you have to look at the country, and the sequence of the reform is very important.”Nigeria began by dealing with nonperforming state-owned enterprises that were costing the country money, according to Okonjo-Iweala. “At the time we looked at it, the state-owned enterprises were a big fiscal drag and therefore it was very clear that we had to act,” she said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

A Habitat Home Tames Construction Costs, Lands LEED Gold

first_imgOne of the happiest – and greenest – outcomes in Habitat for Humanity’s quest to provide housing for low-income families is a recently completed ranch-style home just west of downtown Rochester, New York.A dedication ceremony for the home, held in its front yard on September 26, highlighted the excitement of homeowner Fredericka Washington and her daughter, Courtney, and praised the efforts of Flower City Habitat for Humanity (the local affiliate) and the design and building professionals and other sponsors and volunteers who helped complete the project for about $102,000 in building costs.Just as impressive, though, is the fact that the house – a three-bedroom, one-bath, with 1,056 sq. ft. of interior space – was completed with enough green features to make it the first Habitat home in Rochester to earn a LEED certification. The home was constructed using a waste-reducing framing system, and includes a tankless water heating system and low-flow fixtures, condensing-type furnace, additional wall insulation including soy-based spray foam, an Energy Star rating, extensive sorting and recycling of construction waste, and water-efficient landscaping. All that, and other features relevant to construction and site location, earned the property a LEED Gold rating.As Bill Bartlett, construction manager for FCHH, told the Democrat & Chronicle, a similar home without all the green features would have cost about 10% to 15% less. The LEED certification process, including documentation and third-party verification, added $3,000 to the price.last_img read more
