Madrid wants to the end of Malaga Hugo Vallejo

first_imgHugo Vallejo debuted with Málaga’s first team on January 6, 2019. It was in the defeat against Reus by 0-3. This season he has only played five games by repeatedly rejecting Málaga’s renewal offer. In fact, his last meeting under the command of Víctor Sánchez del Amo goes back to September 17, before Rayo. Hugo Vallejo is one of the jewels out of the Málaga quarry. The 19-year-old ends the contract with the club from Malaga on June 30 and interests Madrid. The intention of the white club is to incorporate it next season, but the ostracism that has been relegated for not wanting to renew with Málaga, is what He has taken Madrid to try to sign him in this winter market. In the case of reaching an agreement with the Andalusian club, Madrid would transfer it to a Second Division team. Deportivo would then be one of the possible destinations of the end of Granada until the end of the season. But he is not only interested in the young striker, also Barça, Atlético and Valencia are behind him.last_img read more

But Narvasa needs the same number of votes to stay on as commissioner when the board meets in Los Angeles next week—thus the stalemate, which had the MVP group appointing long-time manager of operations and current deputy commissioner Rickie Santos as officer-in-charge.“They (both parties) agreed that it is the PBA that is being hurt,” Marcial went on.The board flies to Los Angeles in the United States on Nov. 10.“With the best interest of the league in mind, we have come to an agreement to reach out to the other members of the board to resolve this impasse as a collegial body, not as individuals, to maintain the integrity of the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) and protect the interest of fans nationwide,” the five-team group’s statement said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set LATEST STORIES The five teams also moved to broker a truce between the two factions, imploring members of the board of governors to refrain from making statements until a settlement has been reached.The five-team group assigned PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial to open talks with the seven-team faction headed by Manny V.

Go, Nieto power Eagles to Finals

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. Cignal HD dedicates game vs Sta. Lucia to injured leader “I couldn’t allow our season to end like this,” said Nieto, after blowing a defensive cover that allowed Jasper Parker to give FEU a one-point lead late in the game. “We’ve been through so much, we worked so hard, we didn’t want our season to end.”And boy did the Eagles come close to their season’s end.Racking up 13 straight wins in the elimination round, Ateneo missed out on an outright Finals berth after Go bungled a point-black shot against La Salle in the stretch that could have sealed an elimination-round sweep.The 6-foot-8 center endured long nights of scrutiny and doubt after that shot. He completely redeemed himself with a basket much farther and with much more at stake.“For the three, I just have to thank Coach Tab (Baldwin) because he believed in me,” said Go, who finished with 13 points and nine rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT Then Matt Nieto swooped in and completed the mission.The result? Another dose of the country’s fiercest basketball rivalry on college hoops’ grandest stage.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneGo rescued Ateneo’s season with a clutch triple that forced overtime before Nieto racked up five straight crucial points that provided the needed buffer in an 88-84 victory over a hard-fighting Far Eastern University Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena that gave the Blue Eagles the last UAAP Finals berth.The Eagles, who entered the Final Four as the No. 1 seed, will face defending champion and No. 2 seed La Salle in an expectedly mammoth best-of-three tussle for the crown. “He had more confidence in me than I had in myself. After the game, all I could say was thank you. His belief in me and my teammates and the coaching staff helped me make that shot.”Faced with a three-point deficit and the stunning prospect of an upset at the hands of the fourth-seeded Tamaraws, Go took a feed from Nieto and fired his triple over Richard Escoto to tie the game at 75 with 8.5 seconds left in regulation.And it wasn’t lost on the Ateneo bench just how huge that shot was, especially after Parker put FEU up by three with a pair of free throws.“That seemed like a lost game, but the players really stayed focused,” said Ateneo assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga.After Arvin Tolentino bungled FEU’s final play in regulation—the ball slipped from his hands as he tried a drive-and-pull-up move against Go—the former Xavier star had one more key play left for Ateneo.Nieto put Ateneo up by five in overtime after swishing in a running jumper and a clutch three from the top of the key. Escoto trimmed the deficit to three, 85-82, with a mid-range jumper.Ateneo missed its next attempt, but Go collected the offensive rebound, fell to the ground, and banked in a short stab with a knee on the floor to seal the win.“The last shot, when I got the ball, I just put it up because it might get loose,” said Go. “What’s the worst that could happen [if I missed it]?”Looking sharper than the team that finished the elimination round with just seven wins, the Tamaraws stayed in the coattails of the Eagles, before unleashing an 18-5 blitz starting late in the third period to take a 65-59 advantage on Prince Orizu’s lay-up.Parker was a handful for the Eagles with the fleet-footed playmaker finishing with 19 points only to leave the game briefly in overtime due to cramps.

That’s Magic, you know?” Beasley said. “A guy I dreamed of meeting my whole life. So the chance to play for him, it’s surreal. … I was trying to keep my emotions professional, (but) I had to put the phone on mute once or twice.”Johnson provided Beasley with a detailed description of his likely role with the Lakers. Beasley also is willing to be a vocal leader to the Lakers’ gifted young players, including Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart.“I think they’re all special in their own way,” Beasley said. “I think Josh Hart, Ingram, Kuz, Ball, I think they can all at some point in their careers be All-Stars and be leaders of their team. I think Luke did a great job with those guys, especially in the second half of the season, getting those guys to play and getting those guys to buy into what he believes in. … I feel like they can be anything they want to be.” Michael Beasley signs with Lakers. photo from Lakers’ official websiteLOS ANGELES — Michael Beasley thinks the basketball world is foolish to assume the Los Angeles Lakers’ revamped locker room will be combustible before the fuse is even lit.The Lakers announced their signing of Beasley to a one-year contract Monday, adding the versatile forward to their new core of veterans around LeBron James.ADVERTISEMENT Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?

He was James’ teammate with the Miami Heat during the 2013-14 season, when they reached the NBA Finals, and he already has friendships with Rondo, Stephenson and McGee.Beasley hasn’t become the superstar many expected when he was the No. 2 pick by Miami in the 2008 draft, but he has fashioned a solid NBA career. He said he couldn’t have lasted this long in the league if he didn’t get along with his teammates, listen to coaches and work toward team goals — and he feels the same about Rondo, Stephenson and McGee, who have all had enduring careers.“Anybody (who) starts judging a lot of players, me mainly, doesn’t figure out that guys like me and Nick Young and J.R. Smith and Lance Stephenson and guys like that actually know how to play basketball, actually know how to win basketball games and actually know how to get along with others,” Beasley said. “It’s nothing to do with my maturity. It’s the total opposite.”Beasley demonstrated that mature mentality when asked about his expectations and goals with the Lakers, who will have to put in plenty of preseason work figuring out how to play with each other.“I’m not really here to beat anybody out of minutes, or play more than this guy,” Beasley said. “I’m here to play a team game and do as much winning as I can.”Beasley averaged 13.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game last year in a productive season with the New York Knicks, his sixth NBA franchise in 10 years in the league.ADVERTISEMENT DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displacedcenter_img Mavs, Clippers make international swap; Motley headed to LA ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Beasley, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee have all joined Los Angeles this month in a slate of provocative offseason signings to supplement its talented youngsters and James, who started the parade to the West Coast when he left Cleveland for the 16-time NBA champions in free agency.All four of these well-known, well-traveled veterans around James have varying degrees of colorful histories in their previous NBA stops, prompting widespread speculation in the media and around the league about how coach Luke Walton will manage his roster.

GRA breaks silence on DDL tax settlement

first_img– says deal prevented additional years of litigationAlmost a week after the Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) announced that it has managed to settle a 14-year-old Consumption Tax litigation with the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) for $1.5 billion, the revenue body has finally commented publicly on the issue which has stirred much controversy, announcing that the decision has avoided years of litigation.The GRA in a statement which also took a swipe at Leader of the Opposition and Former President, Bharrat Jagdeo, said that it does not encourage discussions about taxpayers’ issues or information in the public domain.However, it said it was forced to respond to comments purportedly made by Jagdeo, who described the settlement as “scandalous”.Jagdeo in a statement on Saturday evening said that the out of court settlement sets the wrong precedence and could open the gate for other companies to seek tax refunds.“The settlement sends the wrong message to the business community – that a company can unilaterally decide to stop paying taxes while other companies comply with the law, take the matter to court, and drag it out until a sympathetic Government comes to power and settles its debts to the State,” Jagdeo said.But, the GRA said it was “disappointing” that Jagdeo, who ought to have known better, would seek to expose the business of a taxpayer as well as attempt to have information on other taxpayers disclosed, even though he knows that these are violations of the oath of secrecy that the GRA is mandated to protect.“The GRA also finds it astonishing that, given the history of violations of taxpayers’ privacy that occurred under his Government’s stewardship, which Guyanese found repugnant, that he would want to encourage the GRA to continue to operate along those unacceptable lines,” the statement added.The GRA in defending its decision said that the matter has been engaging the courts since 2002, and already cost the nation significant amounts of monies and accused Jagdeo of wanting to “reconstruct the 14 years of failure by his Government to bring this matter to an end.”“After almost 14 years with no satisfactory outcome insight, the GRA exercised its right to settlement in order to avoid more years of litigation and the consequent loss to the national coffers as DDL was likely to take the matter to the CCJ,” is stated, adding that the settlement was calculated based on what the law permits.Jagdeo has been arguing that since the settlement was arrived at only on March 9, 2016, it means DDL had use of the money for 15 years.“If one were to calculate interest on this sum at a rate of 10 per cent per annum, using only the past 10 years, the liability would amount to $10.6 billion. The GRA assessment of $5.392 billion was based on a formula handed down by the court, but yet DDL refused to pay,” Jagdeo stated.According to Jagdeo, the settlement also writes off all possible liabilities in respect of Excise Tax up to March 9, 2016.“So if the same situation obtains with regard to the Excise tax between 2006 and 2016, then the liabilities would run into tens of billions more,” he contended.However, the GRA argues that based on Jagdeo’s formula, Government actually gained a profit of G$231 million under the scenario he proffered.“Mr Jagdeo is fully aware that once a debt owed exceeds one year, its value must be discounted for every year it remains uncollected… During that 15-year period of litigation and based on the interest rate of 10 per cent that he chose, his G$5.3 billion would have been worth G$1.3 billion to the Government after 15 years,” the GRA said.It added that it finds the former Finance Minister’s objection to its efforts to have an amicable relationship with taxpayers, including those in the business community troubling.“The tone of his views as reported in the newspapers present taxpayers as if they are to be enemies of the State. It is therefore, important for the GRA to reiterate that it views taxpayers as partners in the development of Guyana and therefore, explores all avenues available to have taxpayers honour their tax obligations without prejudice and at the same create an enabling environment for legitimate businesses,” the statement concluded.last_img read more

Regional Seminar on International Trade, Taxes and Policies Begins

first_imgParticipants at the WAIFEM trainingA week-long regional seminar intended to provide participants with an understanding of pertinent issues relating to international trade, taxes and negotiations, as well as to build capacity for the formulation and implementation of good and effective external trade policies to yield maximum benefits, kicked off on Monday, August 7, at the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) conference hall.The course, which is being organized by the West African Institute for Financial and Economic Management (WAIFEM), will expose participants to contemporary issues in trade policy analysis and provide a theoretically consistent and quantitative way to evaluate different economic policies.In his welcoming address, the Director of Macroeconomic Management of WAIFEM, Chris Kedze, who served as proxy for Professor H. Ekpo, expressed his pleasure in welcoming all the participants on behalf of his management to the opening ceremony of the regional workshop. He also welcomed the facilitators from the Central Bank of Nigeria and other financial institution experts who are partnering with them for the first time.Mr. Kedze also acknowledged the efforts of the CBL Governor, Milton A. Weeks, who is also serving as Chairman of the Board of Governors of WAIFEM, and his management team for the excellent logistical support provided for the smooth organization of the course. “We are really grateful of the continuous support of the CBL to the course of WAIFEM. Since inception, and as at the end of June 2017, we successfully executed 600 courses/workshops, and these have benefited 16,294 participants from the sub-region and beyond,” said Kedze.Accordingly, the Director of Macroeconomic Management of WAIFEM said the course was designed to cover a number of key topics such as international trade theory; international trade policy; promoting a regional common market and investment climate in the international trade.Others include fostering effective customs union and its challenges; ECOWAS and economic partnership agreements; EU EPAs: implications for economic and social development; international trade negotiations; international relations; regional integration and trade in WAMZ; modeling international trade; an overview of multilateral trading system; world trade organization (WTO); and regional trade agreement, among others.He explains that at the end of the training, there will also be hands-on exercises on modeling international trade. Kedze said it is worth mentioning that WAIFEM collaborates with a number of reputable institutions to ensure high and international standards in its programs. These include among others International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, Commonwealth Secretariat, Debt Relief International, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).Governor Weeks in his keynote statement expressed gratitude to the WAIFEM director and staff for bringing such important training to Liberia. He said the issue of trade and its impact on economic development in the globalized world has remained controversial, especially within the context of developing countries, whose major resources are primary commodities. For the west African sub-region, there has been a renewed effort at scaling up the contribution to the economy of the sub-region, given the potential benefits of trade and ensuring political, social and economic integration.“For these trade potential to be achieved, serious attention has being given to the challenges ranging from complex trade taxes, barriers to trade, inefficient transportation and communication system, hindrances at the borders of countries in the sub-region, currency and legal differences as well as language problems,” Weeks said.These challenges, according to the CBL Governor, must be overcome if growth and international relations are to be fostered in the region. “It is my expectation that these issues will run through your decisions during this program and the CBL remained a strong supporter of WAIFEM and its capacity building efforts,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sharks, Leopards play to ill tempered draw

first_imgSkipper Robinson Kamura drew AFC back level after Harrison Mwendwa broke the deadlock, both goals coming through in the first half.New assistant coach Marko Vasiljevic was present on the touchline just less than 48 hours after touching down as he is expected to take charge until Nikola Kavazovic returns to the club having traveled away to Serbia to ‘take care of family matters’.AFC, fresher than their opponents who just in Wednesday played a CAF Confederations Cup away in Djibouti started with some pace, but they were soon to be silenced when Harrison Mwendwa broke the deadlock.AFC Leopards midfielder Said Tsuma vies for the ball with Kariobangi Sharks’ Duke Abuya during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on December 9, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMwendwa picked the ball from a brilliant Vincent Wasambo through pass before sweeping past both AFC centre backs and striking a belter of a shot into Jairus Adira’s far post to silence the sizeable AFC crowd that had attended their opening game of the season.The winger was drafted to play as the main striker with both Sharks’ out and out forwards Sidney Lokale and Georeg Abege out injured.He was a constant menace with his speed and trickery on the ball with Robinson Kamura having a hard time containing him.But, AFC bounced back into the game seven minutes after conceding when defender Geoffrey Shiveka handled Said Tsuma’s shot inside the box.Skipper Kamura stepped forward and made no mistake sending Brian Bwire the wrong way as AFC crept back on level terms.AFC Leopards striker Eugene Mukangula wheels away from Kariobangi Sharks’ Nickson Omondi during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on December 9, 2018.
