by Metro Denis Suarez has caught the eye during Arsenal training (Getty Images)Denis Suarez hasn’t been at Arsenal long but already it seems as though he’s making a strong impression on his new teammates.Following weeks of speculation, Suarez finally completed his move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day, signing on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season.The 25-year-old was Unai Emery’s only addition in the January transfer window but the Arsenal boss knows all about his new recruit having previously coached him at Sevilla.After wrapping the deal up early on Thursday, Arsenal were able to register Suarez in time to face his former club Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT Manchester United captain Harry Maguire Coming Next About Connatix V67539 SPONSORED Video Settings Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling Metro Sport ReporterFriday 1 Feb 2019 9:21 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link555Shares Advertisement Skip Ad Read More Full Screen Top articles Read More Emery hinted that his new signing could be involved for that game, saying: ‘I am thinking about all of the players. If he starts, I have confidence in him.’Suarez has barely featured for Barcelona this season, making just eight appearances but judging by his early training sessions at Colney he is ready to make an instant impact.In an official video released by the club, Suarez scored a lovely goal at the end of a training session, bending an unstoppable shot in off the post from the edge of the box (at minute 4.46) – much to the delight of Alexandre Lacazette.Suarez isn’t noted for his goalscoring record, netting 26 career goals in over 200 appearances, but he did score six times in all competitions during the 2014-15 season at Sevilla under Emery playing in a more advanced position.Emery has hinted that he intends to use Suarez as a winger despite him playing predominantly as a central midfielder during his time at Barcelona and he will be hoping that the once-capped Spain international can add goals to Arsenal’s team from midfield.Although Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Lacazette have been in good goalscoring form with 15 and nine Premier League goals respectively, their next highest scorer in the league is Henrikh Mkhitaryan with four.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Lauds Revenue’s Online Innovation for Businesses and Tax Professionals September 08, 2016 Efficiency, Government That Works, Innovation, Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today praised the Department of Revenue for developing new innovative technology that is enabling businesses and tax professionals to access their expanded tax account information easier and faster while improving efficiencies for businesses and the department.“Businesses and tax professionals have been requesting online access to their tax account information with more details and the Department of Revenue delivered,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “Making statements of account available electronically will help all businesses – especially small business owners – get their tax information quickly so they can spend more time with their customers and clients.”Through this innovation, business taxpayers and tax practitioners using the department’s business tax system, e-TIDES, can request electronic delivery of their statement of account and receive a PDF in their e-TIDES account the next business day. A video overview of the new self-service feature is available here.Previously, taxpayers could only obtain a simple hardcopy summary after making a request in writing or by phone. Department staff would print and mail the document – which could be hundreds of pages long. Expenses surpassed $100,000 annually when the process was limited to reduce costs. Revenue Secretary Eileen McNulty made addressing the issue a top priority.“Businesses and tax practitioners want and need timely access to their tax information which they can now get through the electronic statement of account,” said Secretary of Revenue Eileen McNulty. “Our new feature was tested and vetted with the help of several tax practitioner organizations to ensure the complex and complicated project delivers the necessary information they need. I thank all of those involved for their support to help make this new tool a reality.”Launched August 1, eligible taxpayers can submit the request through e-TIDES and the electronic statement will arrive in the Document Center the next business day. The self-service feature provides more information than ever before. More than 40 types of taxes including corporate net income, sales, use, employer withholding and other business taxes are available.“The best part is the department worked with taxpayers and tax practitioners to develop this new tool,” said Jason Skrinak of Reinsel Kuntz Lesher LLP, Certified Public Accountants and Consultants, and a member of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants. “It’s fast and easy to use while providing comprehensive tax information which is important to keep a client’s account with the department up-to-date.”The new electronic statement provides a summary of the taxpayer’s account including the three most recent tax periods that have been filed, non-filed tax periods, and tax periods with open liabilities, payments or credits, grouped by tax type. Additional sections show tax periods under appeal, unused restricted credits, and W2 annual reconciliation, if applicable. Detailed account information is below the summary.Security is always an important need for the department. To protect taxpayer information, businesses and tax practitioners must be registered with e-TIDES to request an electronic statement of account. Additionally, tax practitioners must be granted access by their client. The exact steps vary by account.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf
The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) has issued a tender for geotechnical and ground model work at the North of the Wadden Sea Islands offshore wind farm zone.The tender comprises two lots in which two companies will be selected to respectively carry out a geotechnical survey and develop an integrated ground model at the 700MW zone also known as Ten Noorden van de Waddeneilanden (TNW).By awarding contracts to two parties, RVO.nl said it aims to improve the quality of the data provided and reduce the resources required to go from soil data collection to wind farm design. The objective is to conclude an agreement for each lot.The deadline for submitting applications for the tender is 18 November by 2:00 p.m. local time.North of the Wadden Sea Islands is part of the government’s Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2030 which sets out plans for the development of 7GW of offshore wind capacity in the 2024-2030 period.In addition to this 700MW zone, the wind farms to be prepared in the coming years will be located at the 1.4GW Hollandse Kust (west) and the 4GW IJmuiden Far Offshore (IJmuiden Ver) zones.
Ideol stated that the focus of the initiative will be to combine the Damping Pool, its floating offshore wind solution, with Kerogen’s international offshore oil & gas expertise and network. “In addition to decreasing the greenhouse gas emissions, powering oil and gas platforms with offshore wind could offer commercial benefits such as increasing available sales volumes and reducing fuel operating costs,” said Jason Cheng, Managing Partner of Kerogen. Ideol has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kerogen Capital to assess the benefits of using offshore wind to power oil & gas platforms. Back in 2018, the French Ideol secured EUR 15 million funding from Kerogen Capital in order to accelerate the commercialization of its floating foundation solution in key geographies. “Teaming up with Ideol offers a combination of our respective expertise in upstream oil & gas and offshore wind to assess power to platform opportunities, starting with long-life projects in the North Sea area.” The collaboration aims to identify and promote differentiating value propositions when substituting hydrocarbon powered generators of oil & gas production platforms with floating wind systems to improve the operational, commercial and environmental sustainability of the offshore facilities.
KiwiBlog 24 February 2018Family First Comment: Excellent commentary by ex-ACT MP David Garratt….“The first thing Labour needs to change is the common leftie perception that most prisoners are hapless boys who have had one lamentable lapse – a sudden mad or drugged urge to commit an aggravated robbery perhaps. The reality is very different. The average prisoner has 46 convictions – yes you read that right – forty six , and has served the gamut of non-custodial sentences before finally being incarcerated. Of the 5% who have less than five convictions, they will invariably be in prison for murder or a very serious assault….”“….In my view there are only two ways to achieve the safer society that Little says he wants. First and best would be to stop pretending that every form of whanau is equal, and admit that a stable two parent family is best for society. To acknowledge that there is in fact a universal moral code to which all civil societies subscribe – the ten commandments contain the main elements of it: not stealing from ones fellows; not bashing or killing them; recognizing that parents are in a better position than some 14 year old punk to decide what is and isn’t good for that young person. Sadly, despite the efforts of groups like Family First, such a change is most unlikely.”Andrew Little has said he is utterly committed to creating a safer New Zealand – a laudable goal, but one which he simply cannot achieve given Labour’s present assumptions about offending and penal policy. His colleague Kelvin Davis wants to reduce the prison population by 30% – impossible unless we release those convicted of violent offences. Some leftie claimed on National Radio the other day that the jails are “full of people convicted of cannabis offences”. This is a myth. In fact, only 12% of the prison population are there for drug offences, the vast majority of them for manufacturing, distributing or importing P. None are in jail for possession of cannabis.The first thing Labour needs to change is the common leftie perception that most prisoners are hapless boys who have had one lamentable lapse – a sudden mad or drugged urge to commit an aggravated robbery perhaps. The reality is very different. The average prisoner has 46 convictions – yes you read that right – forty six , and has served the gamut of non-custodial sentences before finally being incarcerated. Of the 5% who have less than five convictions, they will invariably be in prison for murder or a very serious assault.Do-gooders like Workman like to mock people like me by suggesting that we have an unreasoning and irrational fear of a mythical “Other”; that those in jail are really pretty much ordinary people, just like the rest of us. While this picture may have been at least partly true 50 years ago, it is emphatically not so today. By and large, prison inmates are fundamentally different from the rest of us. They are people who have not only utterly rejected, but laugh at the principles by which most of the rest of us try to live: not to steal from or beat up our fellows; not to take advantage of the weak; to try and help the vulnerable, or at least not to do them further harm. They are indeed “The Other”, and we justifiably fear them.How did we get here? By two main routes in my view: firstly by abandoning the idea of a universal moral code to which all decent members of society should subscribe, evidenced by the decline both of organized religion, and the ideal of service above self. All the members of Bomber Command in WW II – of whom 30% never returned – were volunteers. Does anyone really imagine that would happen today?We declared two generations ago that the “ordinary” nuclear family of Mum Dad and the kids was no better than any other family – or whanau, as it is now. We declared that society had no business criticising a solo mum with five kids to three different fathers – a whanau that may have utterly different values to the mainstream. And we have reaped the consequences of that foolishness.READ MORE: https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2018/02/guest_post_labours_goal_of_a_safer_society_doomed_to_fail_unless_there_is_a_radical_re-think.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

RelatedPosts Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Barca president Bartomeu says he won’t go to war anymore with Messi Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Spain’s footballing authorities have given FC Barcelona the green light to make an emergency signing after confirming forward Ousmane Dembele will miss at least the next six months with a hamstring issue. The France international, who joins fellow striker Luis Suarez on the sidelines, underwent surgery in Finland last week. Barca had allowed youngster Carles Perez to leave for AS Roma in January on loan in spite of Suarez being ruled out for four months. They now have a 15-day period in which they can sign a replacement, in spite of the European transfer window being closed. Spanish football regulations allow sides to make emergency signings if they can prove they will be left short if a player is ruled out for five months or longer. La Liga’s Medical Committee on Monday confirmed this was the case for Barca. The rules also stipulate that any new signing must either be currently registered at a club in Spain or a free agent. However, such a player will not be permitted to play in the UEFA Champions League. Reuters/NAN.Tags: AS RomaCarles PerezFC BarcelonaOusmane DembeleUEFA Champions League
Jonathan Sexton could be in line to make his return from a foot injury when Leinster meet Munster in the RaboDirect PRO12 on Saturday. Press Association The Ireland fly-half has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the Six Nations defeat against England, with a tendon tear in his left foot further extending his spell on the sidelines. But Leinster say Sexton has “stepped up his rehabilitation in recent days”, and could be involved at Thomond Park. The 27-year-old is among the favourites to wear the Lions’ number 10 jersey in Australia this summer, and head coach Warren Gatland will welcome the news Sexton is closing on a return to fitness. Brian O’Driscoll will make his return to action for the province in Limerick, with his ban for stamping during Ireland’s defeat in Italy set to expire.
