Reports: Man City to rival Man Utd for Barça star Neymar

first_img CET 06/02/2016 Remember that the 24-year-old recently said that he would like to play under Pep Guardiola one day, while his father recently revealed that Manchester United, City’s big rivals, are also doing all they can to try and sign the player. Sport EN Neymar remains one of the objectives for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.  Despite the fact Guardiola wants to avoid institutional conflict by not moving for any Barça players, the British press continue to suggest City will make a move for Neymar, who is currently in talks about renewing his contract at the Catalan Club.  This is what English newspaper the Daily Mirror are reporting about  Barcelona’s Brazilian, with Guardiola set to take over at the Premier League club next summer.  Manchester City would pay Neymar’s release clause, they say, to make him Guardiola’s first big signing. “They can pay what other clubs can’t,” a source close to the club said.  Upd. at 13:10 last_img read more

No date set for by-elections in tied local authority areas

first_imgAlthough the High Court has ordered that a date be set to host by-elections in the tied local authority areas, this is yet to be done.The Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Chief Whip Gail Teixeira has since expressed concerns.During a press conference on Thursday, Teixeira said it was worrying that the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) and the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government continued to disregard the rule of law.She explained that a week has passed since the High Court ordered that a date be set for the elections, but nothing has been done by either the town clerk or overseers in question, or by GECOM or Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan in this regard.Furthermore, she chided GECOM for abdicating its constitutional responsibilities to ensure each local authority area has its leadership installed.“GECOM must be reminded that the elections process of the March 18 Local Government Elections is at this point incomplete until the by-elections of the tied local authority areas are concluded,” she stated, noting that GECOM has a constitutional right to ensure these elections are held.The PPP/C had moved to the courts to stop Communities Minister Bulkan from illegally appointing a Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Mabaruma in Region One (Barima-Waini) as well as the Chairpersons and Vice Chairpersons in five other local authority areas in which the PPP/C and the APNU/AFC had the same number of seats after the LGE.Bulkan had appointed Kervin Crawford as Chairman and Gail Thomas as Vice Chairman of the Gibraltar-Fyrish Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC); Audrey Thomas as Chairman of the Industry-Plaisance NDC; Peter Livingstone as Chairman and Royan Junior Thomas as Vice Chairman of the Malgre Tout-Meer Zorgen NDC; Carol Nurse as Chairman and Wilbert Vhypius as Vice Chairman of the Woodlands-Bel Air NDC; Gershon Clarke as Chairman of the Woodlands-Farm NDC and Rupert Henry Smith as Mayor and Astrille Gamell as Deputy Mayor of the municipality of Mabaruma.However, the Court quashed these appointments and ruled in favour of the PPP/C on the grounds that that they were contrary to and in violation of Municipal and District Councils Act Chapter 28:01 and the Local Government Act Chapter 28:02. Justice Diana Insanally said that the decision “is in excess of and without jurisdiction, made in bad faith, is unreasonable, arbitrary, capricious, based upon irrelevant and improper considerations, mala fide, malicious, vindictive, unlawful, ultravires, null, void and of no legal effect”.last_img read more

Applying for U.S. Citizenship? Be Careful Who You “Friend”

first_imgTags:#NYT#social networks#web audrey watters The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationcenter_img According to documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the U.S. government is busily tracking social networks in a number of ways, including using sites like Facebook to monitor people who are applying for U.S. citizenship.According to a May 2008 memo by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, “Narcissistic tendencies in many people fuels a need to have a large group of “friends” link to their pages and many of these people accept cyber-friends that they don’t even know. This provides an excellent vantage point for FDNS [Office of Fraud Detection and National Security] to observe the daily life of beneficiaries and petitioners who are suspected of fraudulent activities.”In other words, social networking sites give the government an opportunity to reveal potential fraud by friending people who are applying for citizenship, then monitoring their activity to see if they are being deceptive about their relationships. “In essence,” says the memo, “using MySpace and other like sites is akin to doing an unannounced cyber “site-visit” on a petitioner and beneficiaries.”Social Networking SurveillanceAs the EFF points out, there are good reasons that law enforcement be able to use all the tools at their disposal to identify fraud and other illegal conduct. But the memo doesn’t indicate that immigration officials should have any other indications about suspicious behavior before conducting social networking surveillance. The memo also doesn’t say that officials need to be forthright about their real identities when “friending” immigrants, “leaving open the possibility that agents could actively deceive online users to infiltrate their social networks and monitor the activities of not only that user, but also the user’s friends, family, and other associates.”As EFF notes, this sort of surveillance is predicated on the assumption that users of social networking sites are posting things that are a true and accurate reflection of their offline lives – that what we post (or don’t post) about our relationships on Facebook really means something.

Shaharyar Khan feels positive about Indo-Pak series in December

first_imgPakistan Cricket Board chief Shaharyar Khan with the Board of Control for Cricket in India president Jagmohan Dalmiya in Kolkata on Sunday. Anindya SahaPakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan met his Indian counterpart Jagmohan Dalmiya on Sunday to discuss the resumption of bilateral cricket ties between the two countries, which have been suspended since the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008.In an exclusive chat, Khan said he was ‘positive’ that the series scheduled between the two teams in December would go ahead, bringing joy to millions of fans across the world. “I’m not just hopeful, I’m positive. We should resume our bilateral cricketing relationship. I feel the time has come for the two boards to make a clear decision that we shall be playing each other. If the approval of the government is required, fine. But we should make a very clear decision, because our public and the entire world want to see Pakistan and India play cricket with each other. That’s why I’m here,” Khan said.The PCB and the BCCI have a memorandum of understanding regarding future bilateral series, and with that in mind, Khan said the first preference would be for Pakistan to host India in the UAE in December. “We must play each other five times over eight years. Since India has to come to us for the first visit, the first series should have Pakistan acting as host. We know because of the security situation, India won’t be able to come to Pakistan right now. The security situation is improving very fast, but right now, India won’t be able to come for a full tour. We therefore have decided in the MoU that we will play in the UAE. There is much hope and expectation that the series will take place in December in the UAE. We want to make sure this happens now,” Khan said.advertisementAsked if the PCB was willing to consider a model whereby India would host the series and the two boards would share revenues, Khan said: “Anything can be considered with a view to resuming Pakistan-India series.Recently, when we played each other in the World Cup, all the tickets at Adelaide were sold out within 20 minutes! This means the world is looking forward to Pakistan-India matches. There was a task force report prepared on getting Pakistan back into the fold in 2012 and it stated very clearly that Pakistan-India series must be resumed, because they are more important than even the Ashes. I think the time has come and I hope that BCCI will recommit itself to this series.”PCB is committed to resumption. We already have a formula for it. We would like to follow that. But we can consider anything to get this process started again. We want the conditions of the MoU to be confirmed on both sides. In the UAE, people from both countries can come and watch. A lot of people are also settled there. So it will be a lot of fun.”Asked what it was like meeting Dalmiya, the 81-yearold career diplomat said: “We share a very warm, nostalgic and cooperative relationship. I have great respect for Mr. Dalmiya, we were very close during his first tenure as the BCCI president (2001-2004) when I had just become PCB chairman.”There were many occasions but the most important was his desire to go through with the 2004 series. I regard that as the landmark series of all time between Pakistan and India. I know what it generated; the goodwill, the public mixing with each other.”He added, “I was asked before the Indian team came, ‘should we have Indian supporters in one stand and Pakistani in others so that there is no incident’? I scratched my head for a while, and said, ‘No, put them together’. There were scenes of great friendship in those stands. What a tremendous example of camaraderie and goodwill there was!”last_img read more
