first_imgThe postponement of the Euro Cup from this summer to the summer of 2021 has meant that the door is opened to the end of the current national leagues in Europe affected by the coronavirus, including the Second Division. Despite the fact that everything is in the embryonic phase and pending the evolution of the health crisis, what seems certain is thate, if the current format is maintained, the silver competition in Spanish football would extend beyond June 30, the end date of contracts.In this scenario, CD Lugo would have a serious problem of troops to face or, rather, a serious administrative problem. The albivermello team is one of the teams that has the most players on loan on its roster (seven starters and three more on the bench), with what the Lugo they would have to renegotiate the transfers of these footballers with the clubs that own their rights to be able to count on them in their ranks in the final stretch of the campaign and with the team surely playing for permanence. But in addition, Lugo has a series of players who end their contractual relationship with Lugo on June 30 and for whom, for the moment, there has been no news about its renewal. José Carlos, Josete, Campabadal, Leuko and Carrillo end their contract in principle on the indicated date, and their renewal would become a priority if the league competition goes beyond that limit.Since this problem will not be exclusive to CD Lugo, but rather a global situation, It is expected that from the Professional Football League some measure will be articulated to solve the problem. What is clear is that the players must be clear about their employment relationship, since it would be difficult for them to suffer an injury with their contract already finished and without coverage or the option of a new card.last_img read more

first_imgBurrowes responds to GO-Invest audit…In an effort to clear up misconceptions, former GO-Invest Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Keith Burrowes is responding to the forensic audit into his tenure at the entity. One of the issues he addressed, in an extensive interview with this publication, was over $3 million in loans the audit stated he had received.The forensic audit, which was carried out by Nigel Hinds and Associates had highlighted these unapproved loans, although the former CEO had repaid them by February 2016. Burrowes admitted that he received loans, but noted that not adhering to the system at the time was an anomaly.“Yes indeed there were several staff loans that were advanced to me. And Go-Invest have a system. We’ve never had a (incident) for all the years I have been there where persons have left without paying back the amount they had borrowed.”Burrowes stated that in his case, he did not get a lump sum advance but rather, there were several advances. He added that he was constantly reminded by board members of the need to resolve his outstanding advance, which he eventually did.“There is a system where the CEO approves staff (advances) and the Chairman approves (for the CEO). That is an anomaly and I do admit that wasn’t followed because I’ve always felt that that was a temporary arrangement. But I have no issues taking responsibility for that.”“The bottom line is the Chairman should have signed off on it, even though it was a temporary arrangement. So it’s an anomaly that I have to take responsibility for, even though it was repaid.”DriverBurrowes also responded to the audit report’s findings regarding his personal driver. The audit had stated that Burrowes authorised an advance of $242,000 to his personal driver. It even recommended that this amount be recovered.According to Burrowes, however, the driver was assisting Go-Invest at his behest. Burrowes stated that rather than have Go-invest hire a driver for him, he chose to use his personal driver in an effort to save the entity money.“I (was) entitled to a driver at GO-Invest. Because Go-Invest had some problems and there was only one driver, I said to them I will use the driver assigned to me by the other organisation I was working with and he will also assist Go-Invest, which he did, with their work. So all they gave him was an allowance.”“Mind you, they were saving the money because they didn’t have to pay a driver for me. So they didn’t have to hire a new driver for the CEO, as was done in the past.”Entertainment allowancesThe audit report also stated that Burrowes had authorised and received an entertainment allowance for himself, to the tune of $480,000. This, the report stated, was done without the approval of the Board of Directors.Former GO-Invest CEO Keith BurrowesBurrowes explained that the entertainment allowances highlighted in the audit were not being paid on a monthly basis, but rather the amount covered a period of over a year. According to the former Presidential Advisor, these allowances were to facilitate meetings, including with investors.“The entertainment allowance was for entertaining investors, which is necessary for (meetings) outside the building. And the entertainment was not only the CEO, but also my senior officers who would go out and meet with investors.”In the wake of the audits, however, Burrowes expressed optimism that all the reports would serve as a wakeup call and that the administration of semi-autonomous agencies would be revamped.He stated that the audits could be value added by determining from trends whether there were systematic problems within these agencies or individuals. He stated that reforms could then be made.Go-Invest is a statutory body which functions as the facilitator of local and foreign investment in Guyana. The audit into its operations is one of several audits undertaken in 2015 by the coalition Government. Some $133 million was expended on 45 of the forensic audits to ascertain what transpired in state entities under the previous administration.last_img read more

first_imgTHE expansion of Pramerica with an extra 330 jobs on top of the 1,200 already employed there is proof that Donegal can create even more jobs given the right infrastructure, says TD Thomas Pringle.While so many tech companies choose to go to Dublin, Cork or Galway, Donegal has lost out on almost every IDA investment in recent years.Premises lie empty at the Business Park in Letterkenny as a result. But Deputy Pringle said: “I believe this shows that Donegal does have the necessary skilled workforce and can facilitate state-of-the-art employers coming to Ireland.“Jobs policies should continue to focus on counties like Donegal to increase access to good quality jobs while also facilitating other types of employment to maximise employment to the region.“This means developing infrastructures like high speed broadband and other supports to facilitate local job creation as well as IDA jobs.”  GIVE US THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR MORE JOBS, SAYS PRINGLE was last modified: July 22nd, 2015 by John2Share 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:donegalIDApramericaTDThomas Pringlelast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is now surveying produce packers and other post-harvest businesses to help fruit and vegetables operations as they prepare to implement new federal food safety requirements.The 2015 Produce Post-Harvest Microbial Food Safety Practices Survey marks the first time since 1998 that such a survey has been conducted. NASS Administrator Joseph T. Reilly encouraged operators to participate in the survey, noting that implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act  might affect post-harvest businesses.FSMA was signed into law in 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under FSMA, the FDA may issue rules for produce safety.“Better data lead to better decisions,” Reilly said.  “This survey will provide a wealth of new information with respect to where the industry is on the eve of FSMA implementation.”The survey looks at food safety practices, some costs, information about the sizes and types of operations, and any food safety requirements for produce coming into the post-harvest operation. NASS will contact approximately 2,200 post-harvest businesses across the United States. Businesses may respond online at www.agcounts.usda.gov (website) through January 2016. Although USDA recommends responding online as the most convenient method, businesses also have the option to respond by mail.Data obtained from the survey will be used by USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS), the sponsoring agency for the project, for analysis and publication. ERS will use the data to:•             Document changes in food safety practices since 1998•             Provide a benchmark of practices prior to implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)•             Examine expected costs of compliance•             Estimate the impact of FSMA on the produce industry•             Identify the most crucial areas for future research and training efforts•             Ensure that policymakers, produce associations, and produce businesses have up-to-date information to make informed decisions that could impact the produce industryThere will be two other related surveys that focus on produce growers. Both the 2015 Fruit Chemical Use and 2016 Vegetable Chemical Use Surveys will also contain sections on microbial food safety and these will be sent to 10,900 growers in total.NASS conducts the surveys for ERS under an interagency agreement. NASS and ERS safeguard the privacy of all respondents.  Responses are kept confidential and results will only be published in aggregate, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified, as required by Federal law.last_img read more

first_imgThe issue of providing a permanent resident certificate (PRC) to six communities that do not enjoy Scheduled Tribe status is hotting up in poll-bound Arunachal Pradesh.At least 18 student and civil society organisations in the State have come together for a 48-hour shutdown from Thursday to protest against the Bharatiya Janata Party government’s alleged move to grant PRC to the six communities classified as non-Arunachal Pradesh Scheduled Tribe or non-APST.These six communities – Adivasi, Deori, Gorkha, Mishing, Moran, and Sonowal Kachari – inhabit Namsai and Changlang districts of the State. Some of these communities are ST in Assam.Appeal to CMOn Tuesday, these organisations had asked Chief Minister Pema Khandu to withdraw the government’s move to grant the PRC that they said would go a long way in robbing the rights of the indigenous communities of the State.During a public rally at Vijaynagar in Changlang district on December 14 last year, Mr Khandu had said that his government was looking into the possibility of granting PRC to the non-APST groups. At the same time, he said the interest of the indigenous communities would not be compromised with.In another public rally, Deputy Prime Minister Chowna Mein had also said the PRC would be the government’s New Year gift for the six communities. The government later clarified that there was no such move but local NGOs have not been convinced, particularly after a joint high-power committee submitted a report on the issue a few days ago.Motive doubtful “The recommendations in the report, whose motive is doubtful, need to be scrapped,” the NGOs said in a joint statement. These organisations include the Arunachal Law Students’ Union, All Papum Pare District Students’ Union, All Nyishi Students Union, United Arunachal Indigenous People’s Forum, All Tagin Students’ Union, and Arunachal Anti-Corruption Union.last_img read more

first_imgVirgil van Dijk says Liverpool will be “trying to win everything” this season as he warned his team-mates “anyone who doesn’t believe better stay at home.”The Reds extended their flawless start to the new campaign with victory over Paris Saint-Germain in their opening Champions League group game on Tuesday night. Jurgen Klopp’s side have now won their first six games in all competitions, the first time they have managed that since 1990. Klopp’s message so far has been consistent, challenging his team to retain focus and meet obstacles head-on. Complacency, he has warned, will not be accepted. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! That theme has been taken up by his players, with Van Dijk speaking after the PSG game about the hunger and desire which burns within the Reds squad.“If you are going to be on the pitch and you don’t believe it then you’d better stay home!” the Dutchman said. “You need to have belief, you need to have belief in everyone in your team and I have all the belief that’s there in this team.”I’m enjoying every single bit of it. If you look at the team we have, if you look at the whole squad, players who are not even in the squad who have so much potential and so much quality, it says a lot about our team.“Obviously in the end it is about hard work, making sure everyone is there for each other and I think it started for us in the pre-season. Hopefully we can keep on going. We’ve had a good start. There will be a day when we have downs as well, but then it is how we react – and I am not worried about anything.”Liverpool’s start to the season has underlined the progress made under Klopp during the past two seasons, but having finished fourth in each of the last two campaigns it would require significant improvement for them to end their long wait for a league title. They finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City last time, after all.Despite this, Van Dijk is happy to set the bar high in terms of their ambitions.Virgil van Dijk Liverpool v PSG“Everyone is excited, everyone is feeling good, everyone wanted to be part of this,” he said. “We know the season is very long, we have four competitions to play in, but you know – we want to win everything, that is basically our mindset. Otherwise, you’d better stop.“You need to have ambitions, and with the size of this club, with the people around here and the history of the club, we want to try and win everything. It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be something very difficult to do, but you know we are going to just try it. That is the only way forward.”We want to compete for every competition like we did last year, and we wanted to start well this time. We’ve had a good start to the season, nothing has been won yet, we need to show it every week, every three days now.“We have to be ready. But you know it’s a great time to be a Liverpool player, you want to play these games, you want to play these clubs we are going to face. You want to play at the highest level, you know, so enjoy it.”Van Dijk’s next task is to face his former club, Southampton. His transition following his £75 million ($98.5m) switch to Anfield in January has been seamless, the 27-year-old immediately establishing himself as a key player for his new club.Now, his aim is simple; trophies.Virgil van Dijk Liverpool v PSG“I have enjoyed every bit of it since I have arrived here,” he said. “And I hope we keep it going.”I want to win things, I want to create memories here and write history as well with all these boys. The season is just started, we have started well. We don’t need to take anything for granted, we have to keep working hard and stay humble.”We were not in the [Champions League] final last year for no reason, I think we should already get that respect for what we did. But obviously this season is new, everyone starts over, every game.“It started here [against PSG], but then the weekend again with Southampton, the [Carabao] cup against Chelsea, we need to keep going, keep improving, but also enjoy it – you know it’s the highest stage and you want to play these games as a player.”We can’t get ahead of ourselves, we have to stay both feet on the ground and keep working hard and be humble because look, Saturday a very tough game at Southampton, then midweek Chelsea, then Chelsea again, then Man City, then I have Germany and Belgium with Holland.”So, keep on going, every week is a new preparation, every three days now. It is the only way forward.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more
