Ed Woodward refuses to give updates on Man Uniteds managerial plans

first_imgExecutive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reiterated that Manchester United will be not be giving any updates on their search for a permanent coach during their campaign.The Red Devils fired Jose Mourinho in December following a poor start to the season, which left United down in sixth-place and 11 points adrift of the top-four in the Premier League.The Portuguese’s relationship with players and staff members had deteriorated with youngsters struggling to develop under Mourinho’s watch.Caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since thrived at Old Trafford with 10 wins in his opening 12 games in charge.While the Norwegian’s unbeaten start came to an end on Tuesday in their 2-0 first leg defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in their last-16 Champions League tie, Solskjaer is reportedly in the running for the permanent managerial vacancy.Mauricio Pochettino, Massimiliano Allegri and Zinedine Zidane have all been linked with United in recent months as well.But Woodward wouldn’t budge when it came to discussing United’s managerial search while in a conference call with investors today.“I’m not going to get into [that],” said Woodward, according to FourFourTwo.“We communicated around December time around what we were doing, with Ole coming in, and what was happening.“The next communication will be when we have something to announce regarding the manager. We’re not going to give updates part way through.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.In regards to reports suggesting United will recruit a sporting director, Woodward appeared to cool off the rumours by instead reflecting in the importance of United’s “overall structure”.“Lots has been written about this,” he said.“Looking at our structures and how we should strengthen all areas of the club is something we do on a continual basis.“We’ve done a lot of changes in the football side in the last four, five years, particularly in the academy, where we’ve materially increased investment and we’re seeing the quality of that now coming on.“On the football side, we’ve invested around the recruitment side, the player-care side, [there is] continued investment with facilities, medical and sports science, so the evolution is continuing.“It’s not necessarily that visible to the outside and, in some respects, you get a multi-year return later on [rather] than an immediate impact.“The evolution of the football side is continuing. With regards to the overall structure, we’re looking at that and ways we can make it stronger.”Next up: Chelsea away in the #EmiratesFACup. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/yLOxIIMrD8— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 13, 2019last_img read more

Prime Minister Christie wants Bahamian culture institutionalized

first_img Bahamas to take 15-member delegation to CARICOM meeting set in Mo’Bay, Jamaica UN SG is Special Guest at Opening Ceremony for CARICOM Heads Meeting Wednesday Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp CARICOM Inter-Sessional Meeting discussions conclude on high note Related Items:bahamas junkanoo carnival, CARICOM, charles carter, cuba, Perry G. Christie Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 18 Dec 2014 – “We have to do better and we have to do more” were the words of Prime Minister Christie as he talked cultural development during his tribute to cultural icon Charles Carter on Friday evening at a park renaming ceremony in Mr. Carter’s honour.The Prime Minister was making a broader point about the way The Bahamas has traditionally treated its cultural ambassadors, singling out renowned cultural luminaries in the names of Ronnie Butler and his former constituent, Joseph Spence. He also sounded off on the need to institutionalize both the recognition of local artists and to officially and formally facilitate the development of art and culture in The Bahamas.The Prime Minister went on to reiterated his government’s commitment to the development of the arts as was articulated in Cuba during his plenary session address to CARICOM member states on Monday, 8th December in Havana at the 5th CARICOM-Cuba Summit.“Last week in Cuba I articulated a commitment to the arts – to culture; I did in the presence of all of the leaders of the region there present. And I indicated to them that as of January (2015) I will become the chair and effective political leader of the CARICOM group of countries and in February we will be meeting here (in Nassau, Bahamas) and that I’m going to be able to stress and emphasize as I did in Cuba the great significance and importance of coming to understand the economic impact of culture (and) of sports.”He went further. In light of the proven economic impact of culture as evidenced in other CARICOM countries, the Prime Minister thought it fitting for The Bahamas government to institutionalize culture by making further significant investments in the arts at the collegiate level to allow young Bahamians greater access to facilities, formal education and professional training to assist them in realizing their full potential. This would be an adjunct to the government’s policy of institutionalizing the care, education and training of children and adults with special needs such as autism.“I told the President of Cuba then we were going to build our own center for special children in The Bahamas and I thought to myself we ought to also be able to say we are going to commit to building our own school for the arts, incorporated to the College of The Bahamas for people who will be interested in the theater – be interested in singing and dancing and being able to find and express themselves and their talent through some cultural involvement.”The Prime Minister declared 2014 as the year of culture and the government recognized forty Bahamians as “Culture Warriors” in a ceremony earlier this year. In a major policy decision, the government has created Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival that will debut in May 2015. This cultural event promises to strengthen the economic impact of culture while adding a more comprehensive cultural component to the current tourism product offerings thereby enhancing the visitor experience.

Provo Airport handling hundreds of tourists on Saturdays – officials say it

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Related Items:flight, houston, Michel Nuetelings, Portia smith, provo international airport, ralph higgs Road Show delegation starts in the Western USA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Jun 2015 – Houston’s inaugural flight landed on Saturday at the Provo International, but stealing the thunder of that new commute was the hundreds of visitors arriving almost simultaneously for their TCI vacations. As many as nine airliners were on the ground Saturday and it seemed the International Arrivals area was going to burst at its seams with so many visitors getting in to Providenciales at one time. Saturday is the busiest day for the country’s gateway – Providenciales International Airport – and as hundreds filed in to be processed by Immigration, collect their bags at the one baggage carousel and file through Customs – it seemed an awful mess, but Lavern Reynolds, Terminal and Marketing Manager with the TCI Airports Authority assured things were under control. “I don’t think it is overwhelming. I think it is one of those things whereby we have to put all of our ducks in a row; we have other partners that we are working along with which is Customs, as well as Immigration and the airlines and the other entities within the airport itself. I think it’s wonderful for us to be able to keep busy and give them work pretty much, all year round. So I think it keeps us on our toes because you might get a bit relaxed in the off season and then you have to speed things up for the winter season; this way you keep yourself at a very busy pace, all year round.”Ralph Higgs, Tourist Board Director, was pleased with the processing speed of TCI Border Control but said, there is some work to be done.“Today is clearly a very busy day. A very impressive eight or nine jets are on their airport at the same time, I think that speaks to a lot of positive things but it also speaks to situations that we must internally address as quickly as we can. Sometimes success can present challenges and we are very cognizant of that, and we will continue grow as we try to mitigate the challenges that growth brings.”There was reportedly a disgruntled guest who posted a long waiting time on the arrivals side in Provo on social media; but President of the Hotel & Tourism Association, Michel Nuetelings said there have been no complaints officially. “It would be better if they were spaced out, but I think we the airport expansion things are a lot smoother than they used to be and I think everyone is putting in every single effort possible to make it work. Now you always have a few people who may complain about it but I think we know how to turn those around in our hotels and in the various services they get to, they know how to turn that around and make sure people leave here with a memorable experience.”It was unknown what the average processing time per guest family is at the PIA. Later, hear what Minister of Tourism, Porsha Smith and other delegates had to say about that inaugural flight from Houston which touched down Saturday in Provo.

House passes bill to continue Junior Stock Market incentives

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img KINGSTON, Jamaica, October 19th, 2016 – The House of Representatives, on Tuesday (October 18), passed the Income Tax (Amendment) Act, which seeks to continue the incentives provided under the Junior Stock Exchange. The benefits include a 10-year tax break, where no corporate tax is paid for the first five years and 50 per cent of the prevailing rate is paid in the next five years.  Companies also have access to capital as a result of preferential treatment from banks.In closing the debate, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Fayval Williams, said data has conclusively shown that the tax incentives have encouraged the growth of the junior market and created employment.  “The 29 companies listed on the junior market have raised over $5.73 billion. The market started with a capitalization of $521 million and it is now $96.2 billion. Over 1,000 new permanent jobs have been created at these companies, and that does not count the indirect jobs that were created,” she noted.In addition, she said, some $4 billion in dividends were distributed and the number of strongly capitalized companies with robust taxpaying capabilities has increased.  Opposition Spokesperson on Finance, Dr. Peter Phillips, while welcoming the legislation, raised concern that companies were using the junior stock market as a means of avoiding taxes.  “What we are seeing is that… long-established and mature companies, some of them as old as 25 years old, have been made eligible to participate. These companies have, in some instances, spun off subsidiaries connected to these venerable parents in order to secure tax relief rather than because of any pressing need for new equity expansion,” he said.  “What we need to do with both the senior and junior exchanges is to design a mechanism that provides an incentive to the people who want to invest and become participants in the adventure of economic growth,” he argued.In her response, Mrs. Williams said that strong penalties have been attached to the tax incentive scheme.  “The companies must stay listed, as any taxes foregone would be clawed back; and even after the incentive period ends, the company has to stay listed for at least five years, so they cannot leave after the incentive period without penalties,” she pointed out.Mrs. Williams said the observation that the majority of companies have sought to raise minimum capital does not necessarily suggest tax avoidance.  “Consider that maybe it is not tax avoidance that causes companies to seek to raise minimum capital, but their assessment is that when they list on the stock market, chances are, the price for the equity at that point in time will be the lowest price that they will see.  And so you seek to minimize the percentage that you put on the market,” she argued.The Junior Stock Exchange was launched on April 1, 2009 to encourage and promote investment in Jamaica’s entrepreneurship, employment and economic development.  It allows investors to put capital into legitimate small and medium-size enterprises, whose shares trade on a special Jamaica Stock Exchange platform.last_img read more

Jamaica to benefit from US 752 million grand funding

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 18, 2017 – Kingston – Jamaica is set to benefit from an initial US$7.52 million in grant funding under the ninth cycle of the Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB) Basic Needs Trust Fund (BNTF 9).   The money will go towards the areas of education, transportation, enterprise development, and water and sanitation, through projects implemented by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF).The allocation is part of a provision of US$40.8 million being made available to nine Caribbean borrowing member countries of the CDB, under the BNTF.   The BNTF is the flagship poverty-reduction programme of the CDB, aimed at contributing to improvement in the living conditions of poor and vulnerable communities in participating countries.Speaking at the official launch of the project today (October 17) at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in New Kingston, Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, said the initiative will assist in empowering the lives of beneficiaries.“We are quick to get these funds in the hands of the JSIF, because we know that when it comes to the JSIF, we get every bang for the buck; we get good performance.   They have projects done on time (and) within budget, and we are really proud of the JSIF as one of the outstanding public-sector agencies in Jamaica,” he said.The Minister lauded the CDB for implementing the programme, adding that poverty reduction is a crucial component for economic growth and development.   He said the BNTF will assist in improving the lives of the country’s most vulnerable, particularly in the areas of education and human development.Meanwhile, Director, Projects Department, CDB, Daniel Best, informed that Jamaica is also eligible to benefit from an unallocated incentive amount of US$5.2 million, to be distributed at midterm based on project performance.“These funds are to be carefully targeted through an evidence-based country policy framework or action plan, which responds to poverty, particularly in rural areas,” he said.Mr. Best noted that through the BNTF, the CDB supports governments in their poverty-reduction efforts by promoting socio-economic activities, environmental protection and sustainable development.“Over the years, BNTF has formed specific partnerships, mainly with public works, water sector, and national training institutions. Under BNTF 9, however, we are committed to leveraging additional resources beyond our traditional funding sources to accelerate progress on poverty reduction,” he said.Managing Director, JSIF, Omar Sweeney, said BNTF 9 will continue to build on programmes that support education, transportation, road access, drainage and water supply.“We will also introduce a component for enterprise development, and that will focus on agriculture and tourism, and developing new technology for persons in the rural areas to really have a sustainable livelihood,” he said.The ninth cycle of the BNTF will continue to finance sub-project interventions in core priority sectors of water and sanitation, basic community access and drainage, and education and human resource development, including livelihoods.    Encouraging greater private-sector partnership has been built into the programme design to leverage additional resources for reducing poverty.The core purpose of the project will be to facilitate the development of rural communities through increased access to basic services, thereby advancing Jamaica’s thrust towards full rural development.   The project is to be completed by December 31, 2020.The BNTF is one of the longest-running regional poverty-reduction programmes in the Caribbean, and stands out in the global development arena for its community-driven approach tailored for the Caribbean context.Release: JIS Related Items:last_img read more

San Diego jury ruled in favor of El Cajon police officer who

first_imgSan Diego jury ruled in favor of El Cajon police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Ugandan immigrant in 2016 Posted: July 31, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, July 31, 2019 KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A San Diego jury ruled in favor today of an El Cajon police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Ugandan immigrant in 2016.The suit was the only one of several to go to trial regarding the shooting of Alfred Olango, 38, who was killed on Sept. 27, 2016, by El Cajon officer Richard Gonsalves. Olango was shot four times after pulling what turned out to be a vape smoking device out of his pants pocket.Jurors deliberated for about an hour before ruling unanimously that Gonsalves was not negligent in shooting Olango. Olango’s sister, Lucy, witnessed the shooting and filed suit againstGonsalves and the city of El Cajon. Other plaintiffs who filed separate suits that were consolidated into the case include Olango’s wife, Taina Rozier, andOlango’s daughter, Chare Rozier-Olango.Gonsalves was initially called to the scene by Olango’s sister, who requested help with her mentally unstable younger brother, according to court documents.Alfred told Lucy he was afraid that people were following him, according to the plaintiff’s trial brief. He also began walking into traffic and was nearly struck by several cars in the early afternoon hours of Sept. 27. Lucy Olango alleged that Gonsalves “needlessly escalated” the situation into “a deadly confrontation,” while Gonsalves alleged that Olango refused to take his hand out of his pocket following “repeated requests,” then took a “shooter’s stance” and leveled what Gonsalves thought was a gun at the officer’s head.Lucy Olango alleged that she told a 911 dispatcher that her brother was unarmed and told Gonsalves at the scene that he didn’t have a gun.In addition to the jury’s findings, the shooting was deemed legally justified by the San Diego County District Attorney’s office in early 2017.
