I can’t imagine his disappointment having to relinquish the Universal title 24 hours after his PPV debut. I can’t help to think that Seth Rollins should be a little at fault here for being a tad reckless in the ring. If you remember he injured Sting about a year ago with that powerbomb into the turnbuckle. But I’m sure Finn will work hard to get back and he will once again put on a show for us all.

C-Tran’s proposal to eliminate its daily and monthly paratransit passes will help to control costs and preserve its services, but some people worry the move would put a heavy burden on some of the service’s most dependent users.Federal law requires C-Tran to provide transit service for people with disabilities that complements its regular fixed-route bus system. C-Van accounts for 4 percent of the agency’s ridership but about 23 percent of operating costs. C-Van customers typically pay $1.80 per ride, but C-Tran’s actual cost of providing the trip is $44. Meanwhile, a fixed-route bus ride typically costs $1.80, while C-Tran’s expense to provide the ride is about $6.As the community’s population ages and more people begin to use paratransit, C-Tran wants to be sure the cost of providing the service doesn’t affect the viability of its other services in the long term.“I think there’s a misconception that agencies are worried about their bottom lines. That’s not true. We’re concerned about our customers. We need to be able to make this sustainable,” C-Tran spokeswoman Christine Selk said.About 1,270 people use C-Van every month and take about an average of 18,800 trips. But, according to Selk, of those 1,270 riders, only about 450 buy a monthly pass and only around 150 take the 33 trips required to equal its $59 cost. But the riders who do ride enough to make up the cost of a monthly pass ride a lot. Those “heavy users” take an average of 43 C-Van trips per month.

Larnell Bruce PORTLAND — A white supremacist who ran down and killed a young black man in Oregon two years ago was sentenced Tuesday in Multnomah County, Ore., Circuit Court to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 28 years.Russell Courtier’s sentencing came after jurors in March found Courtier, 40, guilty of murder, hit-and-run driving and the hate crime of second-degree intimidation in the death of 19-year-old Larnell Bruce Jr. of Vancouver, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.Courtier and his then girlfriend, Colleen Hunt, were in a Jeep driven by Courtier on Aug. 10, 2016, when he was encouraged by Hunt to drive into Bruce after the two fought outside a 7-Eleven store in the Portland suburb of Gresham, authorities have said.Prosecutors argued Courtier was motivated by his white supremacist beliefs — saying he was a member of the European Kindred white supremacist prison gang and was wearing the gang’s logo on his baseball cap and had its tattoo on his leg when he encountered Bruce.Surveillance video showed Bruce standing outside the store, near the intersection of Southeast 188th Avenue and Southeast Burnside Street, when Courtier drove up and parked. A fight erupted, but it was not clear how it started, Senior Deputy District Attorney David Hannon said.

By Mustapha Jallow“I want to know whether my daughter is dead or alive as we have not seen her since that Thursday when she left home and was reported to be arrested at Westfield,” said the sobbing mother of Nogoi Njie, who could not control herself.When this reporter visited the family home of Nogoi Njie in Mandinari yesterday, he found the disabled mother and other relatives who are in a complete state of confusion as regards the whereabouts of their daughter, sister and mother who is said to be among those people that were arrested by the security forces at Westfield on Thursday, 14 April, while protesting for electoral reforms. The family said they have not seen or heard from her since then and have been searching for her to no avail.“I have been going to Banjul to the high court to attend the cases of the Westfield protesters and the UDP executive and members but have not seen her appear in any of the three occasions they were brought there,” said one of the relatives.Asked whether they have gone to search for her in any of the police stations or places of detention, the relative responded in the negative.He, however, added that the family is very much worried about her situation as she is hypertensive.
This column is devoted to monitor and report on issues that relate to production, processing, preservation and marketing of agricultural produce, aimed at ensuring food security in the Gambia as well as the interventions of Government and Non-governmental Organizations in this regard.Agriculture remains both a new and old source of national revenue and (youth) employment.Improved public awareness and discussions of the issues involved, will significantly maximize agricultural outcomes and the contribution of the sector to economic growth and job creation.This is precisely the reason why Farmers’ Eye is critically looking at every Agricultural programme or policy, to gauge whether our Agriculture and Natural resources are properly harnessed, to ensure food self-sufficiency.Section 192 of the Constitution states: “There shall be established a Lands Commission whose composition, functions and powers, shall be prescribed by an Act of the National Assembly”.This Act has already been passed and assented to and the Commission established, but yet to be functional.Farmers’ Eye column call on the Executive to make the Commission functional, in order to address the series of land disputes in the country, as land is key to Agricultural production.In the last edition, we highlighted the issues on indigenous peoples and other communities with customary land tenure systems. In this edition, we shall continue from where we stopped.INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND OTHER COMMUNITIES WITH CUSTOMARY TENURE SYSTEMSStates should consider adapting their policy, legal and organizational frameworks to recognize tenure systems of indigenous peoples and other communities with customary tenure systems.Where constitutional or legal reforms strengthen the rights of women and place them in conflict with custom, all parties should cooperate to accommodate such changes in the customary tenure systems.States should, in drafting tenure policies and laws, take into account the social, cultural, spiritual, economic and environmental values of land, fisheries and forests held under tenure systems of indigenous peoples and other communities with customary tenure systems.There should be full and effective participation of all members or representatives of affected communities, including vulnerable and marginalized members, when developing policies and laws related to tenure systems of indigenous peoples and other communities with customary tenure systems.States should protect indigenous peoples and other communities with customary tenure systems against the unauthorized use of their land, fisheries and forests by others.Where a community does not object, States should assist to formally document and publicize information on the nature and location of land, fisheries and forests used and controlled by the community.Where tenure rights of indigenous peoples and other communities with customary tenure systems are formally documented, they should be recorded with other public, private and communal tenure rights to prevent competing claims.States and other parties should hold good faith consultation with indigenous peoples before initiating any project or before adopting and implementing legislative or administrative measures affecting the resources for which the communities hold rights.Such projects should be based on an effective and meaningful consultation with indigenous peoples, through their own representative institutions in order to obtain their free, prior and informed consent under the United Nations Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples and with due regard for particular positions and understandings of individual States.Consultation and decision-making processes should be organized without intimidation and be conducted in a climate of trust. The principles of consultation and participation, should be applied in the case of other communities described.Source: Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure.Courtesy of FAO and CFS.
Shkodran Mustafi has revealed that Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker held a team meeting and called for an immediate response after a difficult spell for the clubThe German international revealed that Mertesacker held the meeting after losing four out of their previous five matches in February, which included two consecutive 3-0 defeats to Manchester City in the space of just four days.“To be honest, this season has been more disappointing for us because we had bigger targets,” said Mustafi, as reported on arsenal.com“One really big positive thing is that to be able to recover from such a period when everything goes bad and you’re not in form, to be close together and come out of it as a team is a really big, massive thing.“I’ve been playing in a lot of teams across Europe and I’ve been playing in teams where we have been doing well, I’ve been playing in teams where we’ve been struggling, and it’s not easy to come out especially when you’re a big team.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“You find yourself fighting in every game against every opponent. I think you have to give credit to the team because we managed to come together and go back to the basics. Everyone was fighting for each other to try to get back on a winning streak.“Everyone knew it was a difficult period. The meeting was about trying to listen to different opinions, different ideas and different feelings, and I think we found a way to try to change a bit.“It’s not that easy because one meeting is not going to change a lot, especially not during the season when you’re playing every three days, but it was important to speak our opinions out loud. Overall it was about giving 110 per cent to try to get out of it, and I think we managed it well.”Since the meeting, Arsenal have enjoyed an upsurge in form and have now won their past three matches. This included the defeat of AC Milan to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League and they will now turn their focus to their league game against Stoke City on Sunday.

Kylian Mbappe believes he has already become a leader at Paris Saint-Germain after his impressive second-half cameo inspired them to a 2-0 win over MarseillePSG manager Thomas Tuchel benched Mbappe along with Adrien Rabiot from Sunday’s Le Classique for disciplinary reasons after arriving late for the pre-game team talk.However, with the scoreline goalless, Tuchel substituted Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting for Mbappe in the 62nd-minute and the youngster responded emphatically.It took just three minutes for Mbappe to score the opener for PSG before he later assisted Julian Draxler’s injury-time goal to seal a 2-0 win.Now the 19-year-old admits he feels like a leader for a team that wants to down in history.“The team needed this win,” Mbappe told Canal+.PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“A great team relies on its leaders and they have to make a difference at key moments. I think I can take on that role and I did.“We have to continue on the right path. Marseille showed they have a team that plays with the ball. They had several sequences of play where we were in trouble, so all credit to them.“But we were able to be effective and we leave with the win. We are competitors. We want to go down in history. We mustn’t disregard any match.”Mbappe has now scored 12 goals and added four assists in 10 appearances across all competitions this season.PSG have also now won all eleven of their opening Ligue 1 fixtures this term, which hasn’t been accomplished in any of Europe’s top five leagues since Tottenham in 1960.
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith says his side would have scored more goals but maintains he is okay with the final result.Aston Villa encountered Ipswith yesterday and left them with a 2-1 defeat.“We could have won five or six nil or 2-1 today it didn’t matter it was about getting a result and getting the win at home which I thought we thoroughly deserved today,” he told Birmingham Mail“It was comfortable until Freddie Sears stuck one in the top corner and then we probably had a four or five minute spell of panic, of trying to get over the line.“But then the last five minutes I thought we sorted it out really well. I’m disappointed it wasn’t as emphatic as it should have been.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.“Tammy should have been walking away with his 20th and 21st goals today and John McGinn should also be walking away with two or three with the chances he’s had.“So we’ve had a number of chances today and if we’re more clinical we would have made the game a lot more comfortable.“That said, we’ve got some players coming back it was great to get Mile on the pitch today.“We’re hoping to do some deals before Thursday as well.“We needed to get that win today and I thought we thoroughly deserved it.”
Jurgen Klopp is wary of the threat posed by Jamie Vardy in Wednesday’s Premier League game.Vardy has an excellent record against the Reds with seven goals in his last meetings against them in the Premier League.The former England international has scored more goals against Liverpool than any other club and has scored in his last two visits to Anfield.And Klopp reckons his defence will have to be on form to stop the striker from finding the net again.“He’s quality, the speed he has and the finishing skills he has,” Klopp told reporters via FourFourTwo on Tuesday. “A few times we made it easy for him – Lucas Leiva, did he get an assist for that goal? So I would have scored that goal!“But Jamie is a fantastic striker really, each fibre of his body is on this decisive situation. He always waits for the ball over the shoulder and is always more involved in defending than in the past, but this doesn’t make it easy to defend against him.“He’s a massive threat, to be honest, but he’s not the only one in that team. [James] Maddison – really, really good player. Not only from set pieces, a fine footballer.Mo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.Stunning work from Robbo. 💪Well-taken by Sadio. ⚽️Our opener 🆚 @LCFC earlier this season. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/2LRl1TaDoC— Liverpool FC (@LFC) January 28, 2019“[Demarai] Gray, [Ricardo] Pereira, a lot of really quality players. [Marc] Albrighton. Experienced and in tune with all the other players, or very skilful and quick. Having [Ben] Chilwell make the left flank up and down, it makes it all interesting.“I don’t know why Jamie has such a good record against us. I would say minus one goal because that was the only one I thought he shouldn’t have scored.“The best one I think he scored when they won the title, he got the ball on the halfway line and shot pretty much [immediately], yeah that was a good year for them. Very, very good player and that’s the main reason why he is such a threat.”

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 6, 2017 – Providenciales – Major Developments in tourism sector are expected to be rolled out in the coming months and will be in keeping with the recommendations put forward by the KPMG TCI Tourism Strategy Report completed and published since 2015.Tourism Minister Ralph Higgs showed obvious disdain for the former administration’s failure to implement any of the recommendations of the report. Higgs said the PDM Administration is now ready to at least tackle the ‘low hanging fruit’ for transformation of the sector. “For the first time since the introduction of the KPMG report, we have made funds available for the implementation of that report. So as soon as the budget is passed we will roll out a calendar of events carrying out the Change Document, consistent with the recommendations of the KPMG report”The minister in presenting the his ministry’s accomplishments in the PDM government’s First 100 days in office press conference, announced several projects on the cards including the Royal Reef Project, which is said to be in its final phases. The project is expected to benefit residents of North and Middle Caicos, whom the minister reminded were not forgotten by his administration. Tourism is awaiting the sign off for the Royal Reef Project from investors and stakeholders, and he urged the developers to move quickly on their final plans.Royal Reef had been stalled and is expected to make a rebound and bring much needed employment opportunities to residents of the country’s two largest islands. Minister Higgs confirmed also that approval was met for the development of a Boutique and Hotel in North Caicos.Meanwhile, plans include the creation of a future terminal in Sandy Point as discussed with the Ports Authority. It is expected that an Environment Impact Assessment will come first for the Sandy Point area. The minister says its aim is to quote “give relief to persons who use those channels for boating and shipping purposes” that there would be no negative environmental effect on the pristine waterway in North Caicos.Story by: Kimberly Ramkhalawan#MagneticMediaNews#twodevelopmentsforNorthCaicos#KPMGtourismreport Related Items:#KPMGtourismreport, #magneticmedianews, #twodevelopmentsforNorthCaicos

The words of Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham on the FNM platform in Nassau just hours after thousands stood for hours in long lines waiting to cast their ballot at special voting centres on Wednesday. Describing the current acting parliamentary Registration Commissioner, Sherlyn Hall as incompetent for the job, Ingraham laid the blame on PM Perry Christie for the chaos ensued at polling stations.
