The Vancouver Sun: Aboriginal Affairs Minister warns First Nations to comply with financial transparency

first_imgThe 2013 law has already led to the election defeat earlier this month of a family that had ruled a tiny B.C. interior band for more than thirty years while paying each member a salary that was higher on an after-tax basis than Canada’s top non-Aboriginal political leaders, according to the Sun.The Minister says those refusing to cooperate shouldn’t underestimate Ottawa’s resolve.He’s gone on record to say if bands don’t meet their obligations by the end of the day tomorrow they could face a court order or even financial penalties allowed under the First Nations Financial Transparency Act.- Advertisement -Valcourt says just over 500 of the 582 First Nations across Canada have complied with the law, but listed among those which have not is the Blueberry River First Nation at Buick Creek.The minister also blasted the NDP and the Liberals for opposing the bill.He quoted by the Sun as saying, “To me this is a no-brainer. C’mon. That Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair would oppose the (right of) members … to get this information is just flabbergasting.”Advertisement Read the entire Vancouver Sun article here.With files from The Vancouver Sunlast_img read more

Is 2018/2019 KPL title Gor Mahia’s to lose?

first_imgThe record Kenyan Champions look to stretch their dominance further this season with an 18th title in the horizon judging by the way things have gone for them so far this season.With two games at hand, Gor are six points clear at the top and their closest challengers, Sofapaka (second with 49) and Bandari (third with 45) both dropped points over the weekend and K’Ogalo can increase that gap to nine points if they win against Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru on Monday afternoon.Gor Mahia’s Boniface Omondi (left) and Francis Mustafa celebrate the former’s goal during their Kenyan Premier League match against Kakamega Homeboyz at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on March 14, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluSofapaka have eight rounds of matches remaining while Bandari have nine. At worse, if Gor who have 10 games remaining win at least eight of those, they will be all but assured of clinching the title.Batoto ba Mungu tactician John Baraza has admitted that his side’s hunt for the title was greatly hit after drawing 2-2 with Mathare United while Bandari’s Bernard Mwalala said his side will fight for the title till the last day.“No one has been awarded the trophy yet so for us, we will not give up. We will fight till the last day and push to clinch the crown,” Mwalala noted.Baraza said; “This result (Mathare draw) is a blow for us because at this time of the season, every point is vital for us. We need to go back and correct where things have not been working well for us and try to get back to winning ways.”In the run up to the title, Gor play at home against KCB in Kisumu, then back to back away ties against Western Stima and Chemelil Sugar which will be played at the Moi Stadium, a de facto home ground for K’Ogalo.Gor Mahia defender Joash Onyango heads the ball away from Sofapaka forward John Avire during their Kenyan Premier League clash at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on February 17, 2019.After that they play at home against Sofapaka, a match that they might also decide to take to Kisumu and one that will be crucial in their title bid.They then play away to Nzoia Sugar, then the Mashemeji Derby against arch rivals AFC Leopards at the Kasarani Stadium on May 19. Probably, like it happened last season, a win here might all but secure them the KPL title.They finish the season with a home tie against Vihiga United, an away trip to Posta Rangers and just like last season, finish the campaign at home against Mathare United, most likely, in Kisumu.On their end, Sofapaka tackle Posta Rangers in Machakos on Wednesday then play Tusker and Western Stima, both matches primarily slotted for Machakos before they face Gor in what might be a crucial title decider on May 11.They then travel away to Nzoia Sugar, before playing Chemelil and Homeboyz at home in between a trip away to Bandari in Mombasa, a tie that might also decide second place if the title will have wilted away from them by then.Bandari, with an outside chance of fighting for the title have a home tie against Ulinzi Stars, then away trips to Posta Rangers and Vihiga United, back to back home ties against Chemelil, Tusker and Zoo then away trips to Mathare United and Nzoia Sugar in between their home tie against Sofapaka.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia players celebrate their goal against Lobi Stars during a CAF Champions League match at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on December 16, 2018.

TOWN BRANCHES OUT TO LIGHT UP MOVILLE THIS CHRISTMAS

first_imgCan you help light up Moville this Christmas?The campaign to ensure that one Donegal town gets its own Christmas tree is looking bright.Local man Liam Doherty was a bit sad that Moville may not be getting a focal point this festive season.So he started a campaign asking people to donate €5 to sponsor a bulb on the tree. Moville Christmas Tree Committee say it costs between €6500/€7000 to light the town and tree.Last year our total raised was just €1,900 between envelope collection and local businesses.This year it is going to cost as much possibly more as there are new lights needed.The Committee in its current form have been going many years and had a surplus of monies collected over time but this has been eradicated to a state that this may well be the last year of lighting without your help. Organisers say they need 400 bulbs sponsored at €5 each to keep Moville out of the darkness.And after just a couple of days on the go, the appeal has raised an amazing €1,239 to help light the Moville tree for Christmas.Simply click on this link to make a donation : http://gogetfunding.com/buy-a-bulb-for-moville-christmas-tree/TOWN BRANCHES OUT TO LIGHT UP MOVILLE THIS CHRISTMAS was last modified: November 19th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:bulbsCHristmasmovilleTREElast_img read more

Is this Bielsa’s Leeds line-up with Baker, Vydra and more new signings?

first_img4-3-3The player selection for a 4-3-3 is very similar to the 4-2-3-1, as in Bielsa’s system many of the roles are the same. The biggest difference comes from the playmaker dropping deeper to provide extra support in midfield.However, he is still required to provide an attacking output, and Saiz remains the best option for this role.Against strong opposition, the 4-3-3 will allow Leeds to hold the ball better in the middle of the park, and will limit the chances of them being overrun through the centre of the pitch. If Bielsa wanted to further shore up his side, Baker could replace Saiz in the attacking role – his physicality will be useful in the defensive phase – with someone like Adam Forshaw coming into the side to provide a steadying presence in the middle of the park. 6 Guide dog celebrates Leeds’ winning goal in most heartwarming video of the season doomed? REPLY impact THE BIG INTERVIEW watch The 2018/19 season is shaping up to be an exhilarating one for Leeds United fans, with serious hopes of a return to the Premier League after a 15-year absence.The Whites have somehow secured the services of one of the most highly-rated managers in world football, Marcelo Bielsa, and they seem willing to back their new boss by spending big in the transfer market. ‘HORRENDOUS CUT’ Awful Pressing has been a key part of Bielsa’s philosophy, and the frantic style utilised, and the energy required to do so, has often been seen as one of the reasons the Argentine’s teams falter towards the end of the season.Two of the key players in Bielsa’s system are the full-backs, who have to be extremely energetic. Not only do they perform as traditional attacking full-backs, by pushing high up the pitch to help in the final third, but they also move inside to act as shuttlers on either side of the midfield. If the defensive midfielder drops into defence, the system starts to resemble a 3-4-3 with a diamond midfield.Now we’ve taken a look at Bielsa’s historic tactical approach to the game, how could Leeds line-up in the same systems?4-2-3-1The most likely base tactic Bielsa will use at Elland Road is the 4-2-3-1, as it is flexible enough to slightly alter on a game-by-game basis depending on the opposition.Pablo Hernadez and Ezgjan Alioski look perfect choices for the wide roles in attack, while Samuel Saiz has show he has all the skills required to excel in the number 10 position. Moving down the pitch, Lewis Baker – signed on loan from Chelsea – can provide the link between defence and attack as he has a fine range of passing and is willing to push forward and shoot when given the opportunity.Leeds want to bring Kyle Bartley back to Elland Road after his successful loan spell in 2016/17, and if they manage to complete that deal, and keep Pontus Jansson around, the Whites will have one of the best central defensive pairings in the Championship. Every Championship club’s 2019/20 relegation odds 6 Glen Johnson reveals Saido Berahino’s toxic attitude in brutal five-minute chat Bielsa was named Leeds boss earlier this summer predicted xi Luke Ayling is a solid enough right-back option, while young left-back Tom Pearce has a real opportunity to make a first-team place his own; Bielsa is likely to love the attacking approach the 20-year-old brings to the game.Two further signings Leeds want to make would see them strengthen at both ends of the pitch. Matej Vydra, the Derby County forward, is a target, and he’s been left out of the Rams’ travelling squad for a pre-season trip to Tenerife. As the Championship’s top scorer last season, with 21 goals, and having proven his ability while at Watford, Leeds will be signing one of the most reliable goal scorers outside the top flight.Bielsa also wants to add a goalkeeper to his squad following Felix Wiedwald’s departure to Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this summer. David Stockdale, of Birmingham City, and Manchester City’s Angus Gunn are named as targets, and Bielsa could use his relationship with Pep Guardiola to bring England Under-21 international Gunn to Elland Road.A highly-rated keeper, who is especially brilliant with the ball at his feet, Gunn would sweep out of his area and allow Leeds to build play from the back, in the same way Claudio Bravo – also currently of Man City – did for Bielsa’s Chile side. Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ Most read in Football Leaguecenter_img Power ranking every Championship club’s ground – from worst to best Leeds are trying to secure Bartley’s return to Elland Road 6 6 Ebere Eze on Millwall rejection, criticism from QPR fans and much more How Leeds and Derby could line-up for Championship play-off clash Do Charlton have the most extensive injury list in the Football League? Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack Forest Green keeper reveals gruesome injury after taking boot to the face There is no guarantee of success – as there never is – and with Bielsa the chance of seismic collapse seems just as likely as a return to the Premier League.Nonetheless, the upcoming campaign promises to have Leeds playing some of their greatest football in recent memory, with Bielsa remarkably concerned with the aesthetic side of the game.The Argentine, 62, is well known for the famous 3-3-1-3 formation he utilised to relative success while manager of his country’s national team, and then Chile’s national side.The system was brilliant for Argentina in qualifying for the 2002 World Cup, but at the finals tournament they were eliminated at the group stage.Eight years later, Bielsa took Chile to the World Cup finals by finishing second in South American qualifying, and they went one better than his Argentina team in 2002, being knocked out by Brazil in the round-of-16. Unlucky 6 6 talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. Bielsa utilised a 3-3-1-1 while Chile manager, and a 3-3-3-1/4-2-3-1 hybrid at Marseille 3-3-1-3If Bielsa wants to have any chance of playing his favoured 3-3-1-3 formation, bringing in another centre-half is a must, to play alongside Bartley and Jansson.Juan Foyth, the Tottenham youngster, has been linked with a move to Yorkshire due to Bielsa’s relationship with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino. The highly-rated youngster would likely jump at the chance to be guaranteed consistent minutes under a manager of his nationality who would play the kind of football he will likely play when he breaks though at Tottenham.The full-backs are pushed forward into wing-backs in this system, but Pearce and Ayling seem well suited such roles; Ayling, who is able to play in central midfield, seems a perfect fit for the team with Bielsa wanting his wide players to push inside and provide support from the middle of the park.Saiz would likely be dropped for Baker in the 3-3-1-3, with the latter a more driving presence in the middle of the park. However, Saiz could be utilised if Bielsa wants his front four to rotate amongst themselves, with Hernandez, Alioski and Vydra all dropping deep and wide at various times. This was an incredible achievement for the nation given the lack of talent in the player selection pool, but there was a level of disappointment about Chile’s performances. Despite playing by far the most attacking football at the tournament, in true Bielsa style, La Roja scored just three goals in four matches – a tally far lower than anyone expected.After leaving Chile in 2011, Bielsa spent time at Athletic Bilbao and then Marseille, where he largely opted against his 3-3-1-3 system for one main reason; with Chile, Bielsa always wanted a spare defender at the back, and against teams with two strikers – as many South American sides played in the late 2000s – a three-at-the-back formation kept this spare man available.In Spain and France, against teams who favoured a long forward, Bielsa altered his system to something resembling a 4-2-3-1, though it was flexible enough to become a 4-3-3 (if the wingers pushed high and the attacking midfielder dropped deep), a 4-2-1-3 (if the wingers pushed high and the attacking midfield remained in the no.10 position), or even the classic 3-3-1-3 (if the full-backs moved into midfield and the deepest holding player dropped into the back line).

first_imgDONEGAL 1-12 KERRY 1-10 There were collective heart attacks all around Croke Park as Donegal hung on to a famous victory against Kerry in the quarter final of the All Ireland today.Donegal threw away a six point advantage with just eight minutes to go and looked to have blown a famous victory.Jim McGuiness’ men strangled the life out of Kingpins Kerry in a pulsating second half Donegal went in at half time with a two point lead but it was Donegal’s defence that won the day.Time and time again in the second half they broke down the best attack in the country as Declan O’Sullivan, Kieran Donaghy and even The Gooch were made to look ordinary.Donegal were given a fright when Kieran Donaghy managed to palm home a goal with four minutes to go.But when Kerry added another two points and reduced the margin to juts one it looked like it was curtains for the men from Tir Chonaill. They kept their heads however as the fans and almost everyone else lost theirs!Karl Lacey and Colm McFadden scored two late points to wrap up matters.The fans waited for the team to leave the pitch and quite rightly gave them a massive send-off.It was a battle, it was a dogfight but it was a result.That’s all that matters and that’s all that Jim McGuinness and his charges will care about.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — December 15, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 171215High pressure drifts across the state from NW to SE today, ending up in central WV tonight. That track for high pressure also means we see colder air holding over the north. With west winds, developing, we can’t rule out some lake effect snow in NE Ohio later today, and then going into tomorrow, that can stretch back west to include the entire south shore of Lake Erie for Saturday morning. While all that is going on in the north (no lake snow makes it south of US 30, and may even stay farther north than that in many places), southwest winds begin to moderate temperatures later today and especially tomorrow. This moderation continues through Sunday, as our next system arrives.Rains do not move into the state until late Sunday afternoon and evening. They work through from west to east rather quickly, and all action will be done by Sunrise Monday morning. With the timing of the precipitation’s move across the state, we can see some mix of rain and wet snow in northern areas and particularly eastern areas. Snow will not be able to accumulate substantially because of the high water content…but there will be some sloppy wet snow to deal with. Farther south, we look for all rain. Liquid equivalent precipitation will from .2”-.4” over the entire state. Clouds linger overnight through the rest of Monday, though, and that will lead to a somewhat damp feel, even a bit of drizzle in there behind the system.Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday look dry, with a good deal of sun in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Temps will be normal to above normal for the period, as southwest winds hold through the period. Thursday will feature some cloud increase, particularly in the afternoon ahead of a front for overnight Friday the 22nd. That front is not loaded with moisture, but still will be worth a few hundredths to .25” of rain over 70% of the state. It will all be liquid (rain) We will see very, very strong winds develop as the front passes and behind it. Those winds behind the front will be out of the west-northwest and will average 20-40 mph. This is a very strong circulation that so far, has looked to be unable to tap into any moisture source. That is what we will be watching through the week next week, because if it is able to gain access to any moisture, say – off of the Gulf – it will be a much wetter event. For now, just wind and a little rain.Much, much, much colder air is in behind that system for the balance of Friday night into the 23rd. This cold air holds through Christmas Eve too. Northwest winds may create some lake effect snows in northeast Ohio, but generally, we are not looking for as significant of spread of lake snows and lake clouds as what we have seen over the past week. The map above shows total precipitation combined from today through Christmas Eve. Even though its still an active pattern, there is not a lot of true moisture coming.There’s a significant storm complex developing in and around Christmas. Right now, models suggest it waits to make its grand entry into the state until Christmas night and the day after Christmas. This storm comes out of the southern plains, skims the gulf coast and then heads northeast through the mid and lower Mississippi valley around the 25th. That track allows for ample moisture to be available. Cold air should solidly be in place too, meaning this could be a recipe for some significant winter weather for that week in-between Christmas and New Year’s. However, at this time, we think the track is too far south for us to be in the main firing line of heaviest moisture. That being said…there is plenty of time for the track to move and change, so it is definitely worth keeping an eye on. The rest of the 11-16 day forecast window has two strong, cold high pressure domes moving in from NW to SE right on through the turn of the year, meaning we finish 2017 cold…perhaps well below normal.last_img read more
