Lampard admits Chelsea still have work to do after win over Aston Villa

first_img “He was hungry and I felt for him, like a lot of the players. He has trained well. “His ability to arrive in the box is great and I think he can get big numbers.” The double change that Pulisic was a part of also saw Ross Barkley come on. Lampard is relieved to have selection problems now ahead of the run-in, as they continue to battle for a top-four place. “With Christian and Ross, they both have trained well. I have selection problems, good ones. “I had them on my mind to come on early in the second half. They showed that it is important.” Chelsea’s next game will see them face one of Lampard’s former sides as a player, last season’s champions Manchester City. The former midfielder admitted he did have an eye on that fixture, but is not able to name his team for that encounter just yet. “Tentatively I did try to look at City, but it’s hard to get ahead of yourself. We’ll look at how players recover. “I will look at that as well, but a different type of game. I will look at the team and attributes and then see.” read also:Lampard full of praise for Abramovich after spending spree There was always going to be an element of the unknown for Chelsea coming back in a different environment after such a long time – and despite the positive result, Lampard is already prepared to make some minor adjustments to make his side even better. “It’s important for the group and we didn’t know exactly that we were coming in to. We have to clean up on things and we have to improve and get straight back to work.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Chelsea had to come from behind after a goal against the run of play but managed to claim a win over Aston Villa in their first match since the resumption of the Premier League. While Chelsea hadn’t played competitively in three months, it was Villa’s second game back, after they drew with Sheffield United in their game in hand in midweek. And Lampard was pleased with the way his side got back into the rhythm of the game against a team who had had a head-start. “I am really pleased with the performance,” said Lampard. “Aston Villa had a chance to do this before us, but we moved the ball well. “It has been a little story of our season, dominating but conceding. Pleased with a win.” The game gave Ruben Loftus-Cheek the opportunity to make his first start in over a year. While he understandably didn’t last the whole match, Lampard was thankful to have him back and tipped him to improve the more he plays. “I am delighted for Ruben to be back in the fold. He has looked good and trained well, it was good to have something different. “He will get much better and he has a lot to give.” The player who came on for Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, quickly made his mark by scoring the equaliser. And Lampard said that the American can get even more goals in the future.

Doubts over Srinagar’s master plan

first_imgExperts have raised red flags over the proposed Srinagar Master Plan, envisaging the shifting of the capital to a flood basin on the city’s peripheries and creating tourism infrastructure “at the cost of heritage and essential sites”. The proposed Srinagar Master Plan 2015-2035 has identified key city installations to open up for tourism infrastructure, which will involve big players of the hotel industry. Officials plan to host seven million tourists annually by the year 2035, with 56,000 beds required per day. These buildings include heritage structures and buildings of the Forest Department, Doordarshan, the Chief Justice’s accommodation, the old Assembly Complex, the Biscoe and Mallinson School, the Chest Disease Hospital and the District Court Complex in and around the commercial hub of Lal Chowk, which are identified for “tourism infrastructure”. Fragile State“Kashmir is environmentally fragile. There is need to regulate numbers and focus on high-end tourism sector, where we lack infrastructure, and this has not been underlined,” said Saleem Beg, head of the Kashmir chapter of the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, and former ex-member of the National Monuments Authority of India. In another proposal, there is a plan to shift the main offices of the Civil Secretariat to a mini-secretariat, the seat of power, to Nowgam, which is prone to floods and was worst hit during the 2014 floods. “It sounds strange that planners identify the nearby railway station in a flood-prone area and propose the shifting of the capital to the same site. It will increase trips and road overload,” said Mr. Beg.The plan also proposes to expand Srinagar city from 416 sq. km. to 766 sq. km., eating into farming land and orchards.Srinagar Development Authority vice-chairman Thaseen Mustafa, who heads the nodal agency of the plan, said, “This is not the final draft. More public consultations will be held to incorporate the necessary suggestions.”last_img read more

Drivers union plans to launch cab services next month

first_imgBengaluru, July 12 (PTI) Some members of cab aggregators Ola and Uber, who have formed a drivers union, plan to launchits services next month with the help of Kolkata-based technology startup which owns TYGR app. “We plan to launch our cab services in the month of August with the help of Savetur Digital Private Limited, which owns TYGR app,” former Uber, TaxiForSure and Ola Drivers And Owners Association President Tanveer Pasha told PTI here. “We want to give a local name to the app. Something like “Namma TYGR” or “Namma Huli”, are some of the names weare planning on,” he added. In the next three days, union members and Savetur officials are scheduled to meet at the residence of former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to finalise the deal, including the launching date and signing of documents, Pasha said. He said Savetur would run and manage the business according to a model drafted by drivers union, which would satisfy both drivers and riders. However, the union will control and supervise Savetur through their company, which is in the process of registering its name as Huli Technologies. It plans to expand to Mysuru,Mangaluru and Belagavi after the Bengaluru launch, Pasha said. The company will focus on driver benefits, including a10 per cent commission charged for drivers, besides insuranceand family benefits, among other incentives, he said. The company plans to raise Rs 12 crore to run andsustain business at the initial stages and many investors haveshown keen interest to pick stake in the company, Pasha said. He said the company aims to give Rs five lakh worth of lifeinsurance, Rs five lakh accident insurance and Rs two lakh medicalinsurance to the drivers annually. The company plans to have three to four car categories that will show up on the “Namma TYGR” app, the name of which could be changed,which includes a mini, hatchback option atRs 12.50 per km, a Rs 14.5 per km, a sports sedan option at utility vehicle option at Rs 18.50 per km and an outstation cab option, Pasha said. The company also plans to set up five private patrol security cars to attend to drivers problems of facing drunk riders travelling late at night. “The private patrol car will help drivers duringmedical and legal emergencies,” he added. The idea originated when the drivers had gone on strike in February against cab aggregators, demanding better incentives and stopping attachment of new cabs which they saidaffects bookings.

Conservative MPs tried to silence inquiry call from Manitoba chief

first_imgnews@aptn.ca The Status of Women committee is currently studying the subject of “the economic leadership and prosperity of Canadian women” as well as the barriers that still exist in society.Kennedy was the only Indigenous woman called to testify before the committee. During her testimony, Kennedy mentioned the violence faced by Indigenous women. During the round of witness questioning by MP committee members, Ashton asked Kennedy about the need for an inquiry.“Today we heard from the UN rapporteur who is calling for a national inquiry…We know there are women drumming on Parliament Hill,” said Ashton. “Do you believe we need a national inquiry?”Kennedy said yes.“Absolutely. It is very hard to lose a child and to lose a loved one,” said Kennedy, who was immediately cut off at the sentence by Calgary Centre Conservative MP Joan Crockatt.“I am sure we would love to hear what the chief has to say on the topic but it’s not really what the topic of the study is about,” said Crockatt.APTN National News heard audio of the meeting.Ashton responded to Crockatt saying that the committee was also studying barriers to women’s economic prosperity and violence poses one for Indigenous women who are more likely to face it than non-Indigenous women, according to statistics.“It is entirely in relation to this study and frankly we should show respect to the chief by allowing her to answer the question,” said Ashton.Kennedy then again raised the issue and said women chiefs in Manitoba had asked the men to take up the issue and be more “aggressive” in their support for an inquiry call.“And we said, ‘What if it was your daughter or any young relative that you’ve lost,’” said Kennedy. “I think if there was an inquiry and to have that in there, maybe there wouldn’t be as many.”This time it was Vancouver South Conservative MP Wai Young who ran interference touting her credentials as a councillor in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.“I am from Vancouver and so the missing and murdered women issue is painful having also been a councillor in the Downtown Eastside for native youth and family,” said Young. “That question was completely disingenuous and not relevant to the study at all.”Kennedy said in an interview with APTN National News that she would be reporting the incident back to her women’s council.“Obviously the government is not going to be listening. I think maybe we do this on our own, we set up our own inquiry as to what happened,” said Kennedy.Ashton said the Conservative’s increasingly aggressive attempts to counter calls for an inquiry makes her want to fight harder.“Seeing the Conservatives react so disrespectfully is more fuel for me to keep pushing,” said Ashton. “Their disrespect toward a woman chief adds more fuel to my fire.”Crockatt and Young’s office did not respond to request for comment as of this article’s posting.James Anaya, the UN rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous peoples, released his report on Canada Monday and recommended an inquiry.Justice Minister Peter MacKay agreed to meet with the families of missing and murdered Indigenous women after his Parliament Hill photo op was interrupted by women drummers. APTN National News OTTAWA–Conservative MPs on the Status of Women committee tried to silence a Manitoba chief when she mentioned the need for a public inquiry into the high number of murdered and missing Indigenous women.War Lake First Nation Chief Betsy Kennedy was twice cut off by Conservative MPs when she raised the issue of the inquiry while responding to a question from Churchill NDP MP Niki Ashton.“When they did that, for me, I was angry they wouldn’t listen to a subject that is very important for our communities,” said Kennedy, after her appearance before the committee. “Everywhere across the country our women are out there missing and never found and this is very emotional for us.”The incident reveals the Conservative government is hyper-sensitive to the issue and wants to stamp it out, said Ashton.“They are extremely sensitive on this issue, they know a resounding number of people are calling for a national inquiry and it is clear to an increasingly number of Canadians that violence is an immense barrier,” said Ashton.NDP MP Niki Ashton (left) with War Lake First Nation Chief Betsy Kennedy.last_img read more

PM Praises Girl Guides Officials for Outstanding Work

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, August 18, 2017 – Nassau – Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis met with officials of the Bahamas Girl Guides Association (BGGA) Thursday (August 17, 2017) during a visit at the BGGA’s Headquarters, located Marcus Bethel Way and West Bay Street.   The BGGA is a non-profit, voluntary organization for girls and young women.Prime Minister Minnis was accompanied by His Excellency, Joshua Sears, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Prime Minister.   The Girl Guides Movement has been in existence in The Bahamas for more than 100 years (102 to be exact).Prime Minister Minnis lauded the organization for the “outstanding work” they have done, and continue to do, in training and developing thousands of Bahamian girls and young women into productive, responsible and contributing members of society.The leadership of the BGGA has managed to keep Guiding “relevant” in The Bahamas over the many years despite the many social, cultural and other changes that compete for the attention of girls and young women since the Movement first hit our shores 102 years ago.“This Programme remains relevant because it is predicated on the premise of the girls learning social and survival skills, through a number of activities including camping, hiking, sports, community service, songs, fun and games,” Guiding officials said.“Not only are these activities fun, but embedded in them also are opportunities for the girls to learn through the Patrol System for the girls to develop leadership skills and responsible citizenship at an early age.”Guiding in The Bahamas has produced many outstanding women who have risen to the top of the Bahamian society in areas such as religion, education, administration, politics, public service, the judiciary, the legal profession, banking and finance, sports, business and industry and culture.The list reads like a Who’s Who in Bahamian history and includes Her Excellency, Dame Ivy Dumont, GCMG, the first female Governor-General of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas; Retired Chief Justice, Dame Justice Joan Sawyer, DCMG; Mrs. Anita Bernard, CMG; Miss Marjorie Davis, OBE; the Hon. Janet Bostwick; Dr. Gail Saunders; Mrs. Clarice Granger, Mrs. Wendy Craig; Retired Justice, Mrs. Claire L. Hepburn; Mrs. Elma Garraway and Mrs. Constance Miller among many, many others.A number of them will forever be imbedded in the annals of Bahamian history as having served as “the First Female” Governor-General (Dame Ivy Dumont); first female Governor of the Central Bank (Mrs. Wendy Craig); first female elected to the Bahamian Parliament (the Hon. Janet Bostwick); First Bahamian female Magistrate and Judge (Mrs. Stephanie Unwala); First Female Director of Education in The Bahamas (Ms. Marjorie Davis) and Mrs. Keva Bethel, the First President, female or otherwise, of the College of The Bahamas (now University of The Bahamas).The list of “First Female” title holders involved in Guiding does not stop there and goes on to include Dr. D. Gail Saunders, first female Archivist of The Bahamas; Ms. Melanie Roach, First Bahamian Female Civil Engineer and Director of Public Works; Mrs. Joy Jibrilu, the First Bahamian Female appointed as Director of Investments, Bahamas Investment Authority; and The Reverend Angela Palacious, First Female Deacon and First Female Priest in the Anglican Diocese of The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos Islands and others.Guiding officials say the principles and values that are taught and adhered to, have made “an indelible impact in positively influencing lives and molding the characters of thousands of girls and young women, not only in The Bahamas, but indeed worldwide.”The BGGA promotes a wide range of skills and interests through education, games, outdoor activities, survival skills training, healthcare, arts, crafts and culture.Fundamental objectives of the Association are to provide girls and young women opportunities for self-training and discipline in the development of good character through service to God, country and fellowman, and to foster and promote a full sense of citizenship through community service and international goodwill.The Girl Guide Movement was started in The Bahamas in 1915 and was incorporated as the Bahamas Girl Guides Association by an Act of the Bahamian Parliament on May 4, 1975.Story by: Matt Maura (BIS) CAPTIONSHeader photo: Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon.
