How he managed to have the touch with his left foot, and the second one with his right, is an unbelievable finish.””And you have to say he’s hit that into the ground on purpose.”You’ve just got to admire it and that’s why this lad’s the best in the businessJoe Cole on Harry KaneAnd fans were united in their agreement of Kane’s skill, with one tweeting: “Kane just scored a goal whilst asking Son to paint him like one of his French girls.”Another said: “OMG OMG OMG.

That was humanly magnificent.”A third added: “Look what happens when Harry Kane tries to stay on his feet instead of diving. What a finish.”Kane was sent to ground after contact from Leicester defender Caglar Soyuncu but any debate around diving or a penalty was made redundant after his finish.The 26-year-old was accused of simulation during the north London derby earlier this month after going down following pressure from Arsenal’s Sokratis.Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50’ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBut Kane denied he was a diver, saying: “It was that stage of the game where you’re tired.

No “criminal” liability – Granger

first_imgPharmagate… rather administrative errorsIn light of mounting calls for the Government to sanction Public Health Minister Dr George Norton over the highly controversial $12.5 million Sussex Street, Georgetown ‘drug-bond’ deal, President David Granger has pointed out that the issue is merely an “administrative error” and did not warrant any criminal liability.Speaking on the weekly television programme – The Public Interest – the Head of State explained that at the time, pharmaceuticals were brought due to the high demands from hospitals across the country. He noted that after unfavourable proposals from the existing facility, the Public Health Minister opted to rent a facility that was in the city so that there can be easy access to the drugs for distribution.“Those would have been mitigations for the action that was taken… So there was no criminality, it was a question of trying to get the job done and errors were made. But the Minister apologised and we have corrected those errors. As far as I’m concerned, we have now put in place a system which will prevent a reoccurrence,” the President stated.According to the Head of State Bond, following an investigation Cabinet has considered recommendations made and has determined that henceforth, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure will oversee the rental of facilities for its sister-ministries.“We learnt now that the subject ministry is not necessarily the best judge of the suitably of a particular premise or facility to be rented, and we have now moved that responsibility under the Ministry of Public Infrastructure,” the President declared.Moreover, it was pointed out to President Granger during the television programme that in its 15 months in office, his administration has experience some incidents that has basically damaged its “brand”. The reporters explained that there have been calls on numerous occasions for Cabinet members to be disciplined and/or removed from office, as in the case of Dr Norton.However, the Head of State posited that there will be no reshuffling of his Cabinet. He stated that the changes made at the beginning of 2016 are designed to be improve Cabinet’s performance, that is, the creation of the Ministry Public Telecommunications and moving Tourism under the portfolio of the Business Ministry.Nevertheless, Granger admitted that there have some “errors” made by members of his Cabinet but he was quite to highlight that those were not as a result of criminal acts. He noted that within the 15 months in office, there have been human errors, administrative errors and errors stemming from situations that were inherited from the previous administration.“Yes we accepted that there have been errors but those errors are not really as a result of criminality, they’ve been administrative errors and they have been corrected. Every government makes errors but we want to make sure that we are free and fair,” he stated.Furthermore, President Granger noted that whenever something happens involving a Cabinet Member that is damaging to government, then an investigation is launched.“Whenever necessary, we have asked ministers to explain and give reasons for their conduct and those matters are dealt with at Cabinet level,” he remarked.

West Coast Olefins Ltd now entering regulatory approval process for Petrochemical complex

first_imgFor the past year, company representatives have been meeting with local contractors to get a handle on the labour situation and fabrication infrastructure. They’ve also had meetings with local and First Nations leaders, as the project will be constructed within the territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation.Chief Clay Pountney said in a statement that, “Lheidli T’enneh Nation looks forward to potentially partnering with West Coast Olefins to ensure that if the project is approved (it) will provide significant economic benefits to Lheidli T’enneh and our members and is designed and built in a way that is aligned with our values.”For more on the facility; CLICK HERE. The actual construction of the complex will have its challenges, components will have to be manufactured on or near the complex instead of being shipped in from other parts of Canada or Asia.“LNG Canada is on the coast so they can actually have modules built in China and Indonesia and have them shipped across the ocean. However, there’s a big mountain range which is the Coastal Range and I can not bring modules into Prince George. To the east, I have the Rocky Mountains, another significant barrier to bringing in stuff from Alberta module shops, so I have to do my construction in Prince George.”With most of the industry in Prince George geared to sawmill and pulp industries creates another challenge. The project will need fabrication of big pressure vessels and pressure piping, an effort will have to be put into converting the local industry to focus on petrochemicals and fabricating.The interview continues to share James, who has worked on several ethylene plants, says he has asked the province to put money into fabrication and construction infrastructure in Prince George, as those skills will be needed for the venture and he is relying on the local workforce to build the project.Advertisement CALGARY, AB – In an interview shared in the Journal of Commerce, Ken James, President and CEO of Calgary-based West Coast Olefins Ltd. talked about the Petrochemical complex to be built in Prince George, B.C.Sharing, the company has secured a 120-hectare site in the BCR Industrial Area at the southeast end of Prince George and is now entering the regulatory approval process which would require an environmental assessment.James says a final investment decision is to be made by the end of next year and, if approved, the project would be built over a three-year period with start-up at the end of 2023.- Advertisement -In the interview, James says Prince George was chosen as the preferred location for the complex because natural gas is now being exported mostly to Asia.Noting, Prince George already has a lot of the pieces in place for such a venture, namely a pipeline, waterways, a connected rail system, designated industrial land and sizeable population base.“I wanted a project where I didn’t need to build any pipeline for very obvious reasons,” says James. “I also wanted a community that was big enough to do this without total disruption and Prince George has that.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Man gunned down at Reseda apartment

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventThey were Williams’ last words. Three shots later, according to the witness, the mentor for hundreds of Valley kids stumbled down an apartment stairway and collapsed in the lobby below. Police found him dead at the scene with several gunshot wounds to his upper body. The suspect was described by witnesses as a 5-foot-10 black man, 28 to 30 years old, weighing between 160 and 170 pounds, with a shaved head and wearing a blue shirt. He was last seen running from the locked garden apartments at 6210 Reseda Blvd. The motive for the killing is unknown, police said. No suspects have been identified. “We’re accepting anybody’s help right now. We don’t have anything to go on,” said Los Angeles police Detective Brad Roberts of the West Valley Homicide Unit. “It’s a bit of a mystery right now.” RESEDA – He helped neighbors, guided at-risk teens and coached two youth football and basketball teams to San Fernando Valley championships. So family and friends were stunned to learn Gary Gault Williams was shot to death this week outside his Reseda apartment. The 38-year-old coach hadn’t an enemy in the world, they said. Except one, seen before noon Tuesday by a neighbor through an apartment-door peephole, according to the apartment manager, who didn’t want to be identified. “What are you going to do, shoot me now?” Williams asked his assailant after a brief scuffle by the second-story elevator, the neighbor told the manager. Williams, a personal trainer and artist, served as an assistant coach for the Reseda Buccaneers Pop Warner football team and the Recreation Center Jr. Coed All-Star Wildcats basketball team. For two years running, he led the Buccaneers to Valley championships. This year, his Wildcat All-Stars won the Valley regional championship. He drove boys to and from practices and games, coaches said. He sponsored kids out of his own pocket. He even went to other parts of Los Angeles to pick up at-risk kids who wanted to play on his teams. “All the kids wanted to be around him,” said Michael Walton, head coach for the Buccaneers and Wildcats. “He prodded the kids in a good way. When kids were going down the wrong path, he would bring them into football, into basketball and track and try to keep them off the street.” “He went overboard for these kids,” added Reseda Buccaneers President Saul Martinez. “He’d do anything for anybody. This is a big blow to the community, a big blow. There’s no other guy like him.” On Wednesday, family and friends gathered at a makeshift shrine of flowers and candles placed outside his apartment building. A girlfriend cried as she recited the 23rd Psalm. Neighbors talked of the gentle man who carried their groceries, greeted them in the hall and paid for personal needs. “When my husband had to go to the hospital and I didn’t have the money for cab fare, he just gave me the money,” said Norma Tate, 65, who lived down the hall. “He just said, `Here’s the money.”‘ Friends and family spoke of the handsome jokester with the pencil mustache and faint goatee, always a favorite with the ladies. On Wednesday, the graduate of Sequoia Middle School and Crenshaw High would have celebrated the birthday of his mom, Renee Hutchinson of Reseda. He is also survived by his father, Gary Williams of Los Angeles; four sisters, Sharrell Williams of Reseda, Raashaar Williams, Yoshiko Williams and Heather Hutchinson; and two nieces and three nephews he helped raise. “He just loved kids,” said Sharrell Williams, 39, wiping away tears. “Always driving somewhere with kids, always had somebody’s kids in his car. He raised my kids; he was their father. “There was never a bad word (said) about my brother. Not one. He was never in a gang. He was never in any trouble as a kid. Never had a police record, was never arrested. I would like anybody who saw this, anybody, to call the police station so that my brother’s death won’t go unavenged.” Anyone with information can call the West Valley Homicide Unit at (818) 374-7721 or (877) LAWFULL.

first_imgFOOTBALL: Letterkenny Rovers fantastic run in this seasons SFAI National u13 cup came to an end on Saturday afternoon when they were on the wrong end of a 3-0 defeat at top Dublin side St Kevins Boys in the quarter finals.After a win in the previous round over another Dublin kingpin in St Josephs Boys hopes were high of completing an unlikely  double but those hopes dissipated when Kevins hit 3 goals in the space of ten minutes midway through the first half.Rovers had a couple of half chances through David Boyle and Joel Gorman before Kevins opened the scoring on 14 minutes when a cross from the right was met on the volley by the impressive Rory Kinsella who made no mistake firing past Killian Gribben.The Donegal side were shocked with the concession of the opener and found themselves further behind just 6 minutes later when Dylan Quinn found the net after  a goalmouth scramble.Rovers had a mountain to climb and their task was met all the harder when Kinsella finished neatly to the bottom corner on 24 minutes to put Kevins 3-0 ahead.The second half was a much more even affair and Rovers defensive side performed admirably but the only real chance of note for Letterkenny to get back into it came from Nathan Plumb but his shot sailed over the bar.A tough test in the capital for Michael Boyles charges but no doubt the experience gained will stand to the talented young side as they continue their progression through the underage ranks.Letterkenny Rovers squad: Killian Gribben, Leon Doherty, Joel Gorman, Sean McVeigh, James Lenty Gallagher, James Barlow Gallagher, Adam Yissau, David Boyle, Sean McGinley, Dermot Slevin, Nathan Plumb,  Fouad Bashar, Odhran Galvin, Jonathan Pearson, Jake Kelly, Nathan Bonner, Jason Blake, Liam HanniganBRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS U13’S BOW OUT OF FAI CUP TO ST KEVIN’S BOYS was last modified: March 19th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:FAIFootballLetterkenny RoversnewsSportU13slast_img read more
