All of those guys are finishing up, right now they’re in their finals depending on what state they’re in or where they are. I know they’re looking forward to getting into our place and start working.”“And that’s an accomplishment. As everybody in this room knows, academically at Georgia, it’s an unbelievable place. It’s unbelievably competitive.

And that goes for our players, too.”It’s great news for Georgia fans who want to see a complete team take the field in 2019.After ending the 2018 season on a low note, Kirby Smart and company will be at full strength headed into the new campaign.

Charles Olive and his Technicolor Bow Ties

October 24, 2019

first_img A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America When it comes to bringing the bow tie back, Charles Olive is representing. His grid-like prints incorporate progressive color ways and for the most part, are designed in excel which is really pretty awesome. An avid bow tie wearer himself, the London-based designer has utilized his own experience and preference to create his super smart inaugural collection.The Manual caught up with Charles during an excel break, to find out more about the welcome resurrection of this sartorial accessory.Congratulations on the collection Charles! Tell me more- why bow ties? Why now?Thanks. Well I’ve been wearing bow ties for a few years now; I pretty much wear one everyday. After a while I realized that there wasn’t anyone doing anything overly exciting with bow ties. I started messing around making bow ties just so I had something different to wear and it kind of went from there.I think it’s an interesting time for menswear. On the one hand you have a lot of guys smartening themselves up and taking an interest in classic tailoring and then on the slightly more fashion side of things people are experimenting a lot more with print and color. Men’s Collections seem to be representing this really well.The prints are predominantly realized in excel. Can you explain this process?Well when I first started out I didn’t know how to use Photoshop or illustrator but I really wanted to make some fabrics for my bow ties. I was – and still am – obsessed by Anni and Josef Albers so I just started playing around making patterns by coloring in the cells of a spreadsheet.It was around the time that the whole ‘New Aesthetic’ thing was blowing up, and I was kind of interested in the influence of technology on art and design and at some point I realized that this was more than just messing about. After that I properly started to look at repeat patterns that would work on a small canvas like a bow tie.Part of the goal of this collection was to recreate the same feel as a traditional spot or check but via Excel.Where do you find inspiration for the color palettes you use?I’m pretty colorblind so when I started out in Excel I had to make sure that the colors were different enough so I could see where the patterns were. I guess that’s partly why a lot of the colors pop off each other. But then I love African fabrics, which is possibly where the yellow comes from.The thing about bow ties is that because it’s such a small item you can be so much bolder than with a jacket or trousers or a whole suit.In your opinion, what is the contemporary relevance of the bow tie?I think they’re becoming more and more relevant the less people wear neckties. It used to be that neckties were the norm and bow ties were the quirky outsider. But as fewer people in general wear ties the bow tie becomes a viable option because the act of wearing any kind of tie is a statement so it doesn’t matter so much whether it’s a bow or a necktie. And this is where the color comes in – loads of my prints just wouldn’t look right splashed all down your front – but a little pop around the collar works wonders.Who wears a bow tie better than anybody else?Patrick Grant rocks a pretty mean bow tie. Angelo Flaccavento always looks good in a bow tie. Nick Wooster often rocks a seersucker jacket with a contrasting seersucker bow tie in the summer – that’s a strong look. But I reckon I’ve got the best bow tie collection.What’s next for Charles Olive the brand, and Charles Olive the person?Well for the brand I’m working on new collections. I want to show seasonal collections interspersed with capsule collections. And I’m really keen on developing a line in classic materials like lambs wool and cashmere. And then also with the seasonal stuff I want to update the core designs in new colorways. So it’s pretty busy.And for Charles Olive the person – I need a beard trim. I constantly have to trim it so it doesn’t hide my bow tie!charles-olive.myshopify.com Editors’ Recommendations The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze Slopestyle Mountain Bike Champion Emil Johansson Talks Tricks, Staying Fit, and More Take a Peek at Wimbledon Winner Novak Djokovic’s Swanky Miami Retreat Lenny Kravitz’s New Twice Toothpaste Will Make Plaque Fly Awaylast_img read more

New Nursing Legislation Introduced

October 22, 2019

first_imgPatients will benefit from streamlined and updated legislation that governs the nursing profession. A new Registered Nurses Act, introduced today, May 8, by Health Minister Chris d’Entremont, will better define the scope of practice and how nurses work with other health professionals. The act will eliminate the barriers facing nurse practitioners, while following national standards. This will enable them to work in collaboration with other health-care professionals, allowing them to make a diagnosis, order tests and prescribe medications. A second piece of legislation, the Licensed Practical Nurses Act, clarifies the definition of their scope of practice. This allows them to work more independently with their patients. “The government is pleased to support nurses and their colleges. These updated acts will make it easier for nurses to perform their jobs while providing safe, competent and ethical care,” Mr. d’Entremont said today on the launch of National Nursing Week (May 8-15). “The Department of Health is able to introduce updated legislation because of the collaborative effort and hard work of both the regulatory bodies and nurses of Nova Scotia.” The College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia support the need for these new updated acts. The legislation was created after consultations with groups like Doctors Nova Scotia, nurses’ unions, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the College of Pharmacies and the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia. The acts also include more modern complaints and discipline processes that allow the colleges to deal with concerns from the public about nurses more efficiently and effectively. “We are delighted that the government is introducing the new RN Act today,” said Linda Hamilton, executive director of the College Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia. “In light of the pressures on today’s health-care system, clarifying the scope of practice of registered nurses and increasing public access to the health-care services they provide can only be a good thing.” Ann Mann, executive director of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia, is also pleased to see the introduction of the bills. “The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia, like many other health-care organizations, is responding to the many challenges facing health care by supporting legislation that clarifies the current role and responsibilities of licensed practical nurses.” About 9,526 registered nurses are licensed by the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia and 3,058 licensed practical nurses are licensed by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia. Nursing is the latest health profession to update its legislation in recent years. Other groups include psychologists, dentists, chiropractors and optometrists and opticians.last_img read more

Mala Roy Sudip Bandyopadhyay maintain Trinamools lead in city

October 20, 2019

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress retained its seats in the two Kolkata constituencies with both Mala Roy and Sudip Bandyopadhyay leading by a comfortable margin from the Kolkata South and Kolkata North parliamentary constituencies.Roy had a lead of over 1.5 lakh votes over BJP’s Chandra Kumar Bose. In terms of voting percentage, Roy has got over 47 percent votes, significantly higher than the 36.95 percent votes won by TMC in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaOn the other hand, BJP’s vote percentage of over 34 percent is also a marked rise from 25.28 percent last year. In contrast, the vote percentage of CPI(M)’s Nandini Mukherjee stood at around 11 percent, a sharp drop from the 23.83 percent votes that she had amassed during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. “The people of South Kolkata have always blessed Trinamool Congress and this year it has been no exception. People have voted for us because they love TMC and our party supremo Mamata Banerjee,” Roy said, refusing to elaborate with the complete results still pending. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersMeanwhile, Sudip Bandyopadhyay was last seen leading by a margin of over 1 lakh votes over BJP’s Rahul Sinha. In terms of voting percentage, TMC recorded around 49 percent, up from 35.94 percent in the 2014 polls, whereas the saffron party’s vote percentage hovered around 37 percent, up from 25.88 percent last year. CPI(M)’s vote percentage, which was over 20 in 2014, dropped to a paltry 7.5 percent. Roy, the chairperson of Kolkata Municipal Corporation, was fielded from the Kolkata South seat replacing Subrata Bakshi, who had swept the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 with a margin of 1,36,339 votes over BJP’s Tathagata Roy. Bakshi’s vote percentage was 36.95, while that of Roy was 25.28. CPI(M)’s Nandini Mukherjee, who came third, could manage 23.83 percent votes. Interestingly, it may be recalled that Roy had contested on a Congress ticket in 2014 and had bagged over 1 lakh votes. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the voters of Kolkata South had bestowed their faith upon TMC as well, with present TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee winning from the seat by over 2 lakh votes. Banerjee bagged 57.19 percent votes, while CPI(M)’s Rabin Deb, who came second, registered 35.39 percent votes. South Kolkata has come to be known as a stronghold of TMC for over a decade, with party supremo Mamata Banerjee herself being a resident of Harish Chatterjee Street in Kalighat. It may be mentioned that in the Kolkata North seat, Bandyopadhyay had won in both 2009 and 2014. He defeated his nearest rival Sinha by a margin of 96,266 votes in 2014, while CPI(M)’s Mohammed Salim had lost by 1,09,278 votes in 2009.last_img read more

MARCA Survey 63 3 of Spaniards dont want Mounir El Haddadi

October 12, 2019

Agadir- Mounir El Haddadi, FC Barcelona’s 19-year-old forward, has expressed his delight following his surprising call-up by Del Bosque to join the Spanish squad, which will face Macedonia in a Euro 2016 qualifying match on Monday, and as a result aborting any chances for Morocco who was also interested in securing his services.But the recent La Masia graduate and son to Moroccan parents will feel a bit disappointed after taking a look at the results of a recent survey conducted by widely-circulated Sports Spanish newspaper MARCA. The Survey suggests that Spaniards do not seem to be very excited about the arrival of Mounir El Haddadi to La Roja.MARCA asked Spanish readers via its website whether Del Bosque’s calling up of Mounir El Haddadi to play against Macedonia was a good move. The results were as following: 63, 3% voted with a No while only 36, 7% of the voters gave a favorable answer. Last week Mounir decided to play for Spain and, therefore, put an end to speculations on his future with the Moroccan national team. read more

New report finds political intimidation in parts of Afghanistan – UN

October 6, 2019

The first report of the Joint Verification of Political Rights by the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission and the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reveals greater respect for rights in the capital, Kabul, and in the East.But in parts of the South, violence by extremists is hindering popular participation in the electoral process, while in the West, registered political parties complain that local authorities are curtailing their freedom of expression and operation, a UN spokesman said today.“The report observes that there is a high level of self-censorship among groups, parties and individuals who do not share the beliefs of the factions in power in different regions,” Manoel de Almeida e Silva told the press in Kabul. “This self-imposed restraint is strengthened by the behaviour of local representatives of the central Government who tend to consider any political activity as subversive.” read more

Further development of DPRK nuclear programme cause of grave concern – UN

October 2, 2019

“There were indications at the Yongbyon Experimental Nuclear Power Plant suggesting that the reactor was being operated, [and] at the Yongbyon Nuclear Fuel Rod Fabrication Plant, there were indications consistent with the use of the reported centrifuge enrichment facility,” said Yukiya Amano, the Director General of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), at the agency’s Board of Governors meeting in Vienna. “The continuation and further development of the nuclear programme of the DPRK are a cause for grave concern.” Noting that the IAEA continues to closely follow developments in the country’s nuclear programme, the Director General said that the UN agency is enhancing its efforts to monitor and verify nuclear-related developments, including through ensuring the availability of appropriate verification technologies and equipment. Turning to other areas, Mr. Amano said that the nuclear-related commitments undertaken by Iran under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action are being implemented and that the IAEA continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by the country under its Safeguards Agreement. “We will continue to implement the Additional Protocol in Iran, including carrying out complementary accesses to sites and other locations, as we do in other countries with additional protocols,” he noted. On the implementation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) Safeguards Agreement in Syria, the IAEA Director General said that the agency’s assessment remains that it was “very likely” that the building destroyed at the Dair Alzour site in 2007 was a nuclear reactor that should have been declared as such by Syria under its Safeguards Agreement. “I renew my call on Syria to cooperate fully with [IAEA] in connection with unresolved issues related to the Dair Alzour site and other locations,” he urged. Also in his statement, Mr. Amano spoke of the agency’s technical cooperation programme, including its work to contain the outbreak of the fruit fly pest in the Dominican Republic and efforts to conserve ground water and protect it from pollution in the Sahel region, as well as its work on nuclear applications, and on nuclear safety and security. Citing increasing demand for assistance under the technical cooperation programme, the IAEA Director General also urged all countries to contribute funds, and welcomed support through extrabudgetary contributions, including government cost sharing. read more

Chris Paul Other Clippers May Sit Out If Donald

In the Donald Sterling saga that will not go away, all-star point guard Chris Paul said he might sit out the season if the beleaguered Sterling, who was stripped of ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, remains as the head of the team.Sterling is fighting in court against the sale of his team to former Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer, and his unprecedented punishment for making racially charged comments about Black people during a recorded phone call to a girlfriend.The legal battle could and likely will run into the upcoming season. That’s where it can get even more ugly within the team, which displayed acts of protest against Sterling even prior to Silver’s judgment.Paul, the head of the NBA Players Association, said he, like coach Doc Rivers, is considering not playing if Sterling maintains ownership of the team.“That’s something me and Doc are both talking about,” Paul said Thursday after coaching his AAU program, CP3. “Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon — sooner rather than later.”Interim Clippers CEO Dick Parsons testified earlier in the week in state court that Rivers told him on multiple occasions that he doesn’t think he wants to continue coaching the team if Sterling remains in control of the franchise.Further, Paul said other players will consider not playing under Sterling, too.“We’re all going to talk about it,” Paul said. “We’re all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake Griffin, (DeAndre Jordan). It’s unacceptable.”The issue remains whether Sterling’s wife, Shelly, acted properly in selling the franchise without his consent. She agreed to a deal with Ballmer for a record $2 billion.Closing arguments in the probate court case are set for Monday, at which point the judge will determine whether to authorize the sale or throw the situation into further confusion. Donald Sterling has vowed to fight “as long as he lives.”The original purchase agreement called for the sale to close by July 15 — with an extension until Aug. 15. The NBA has said it will resume termination proceedings of the sale if it’s not closed by Sept. 15, a few weeks before the start of training camp. read more

Ballymount blaze rated a Category 1′ incident by EPA

September 22, 2019

first_imgUpdated at 7.11pmThe scene at Ballymount yesterday [Brian Lawless/PA Wire]THE FIRE AT the Oxigen recycling plant in Ballymount, west Dublin is being rated a ‘Category 1′ incident by the Environmental Protection Agency.Three units of Dublin Fire Brigade are continuing their efforts to contain the fire today, a day after it was first reported. An incident command unit is also at the scene, coordinating the response effort.This evening, a Dublin Fire Brigade spokesperson said they are still fighting the fire defensively and anticipate tackling the blaze into tomorrow.Category 1A spokesperson for the EPA said the ‘category 1′ rating was an internal classification used for incidents where the agency decided there was a need to make the public aware of an incident:“It’s used where there’s a fire, or an explosion, something the public should be made aware of — lower categories are used where the incident doesn’t spread from the immediate area.”Although the smoke is now subsiding, both the EPA and gardaí said the advice to householders in the area remained the same — people in the affected area are being advised to stay indoors and keep windows and doors closed.The EPA spokesperson said that the advice should be heeded in areas where there was a strong smoke smell.An operator at Dublin Fire Brigade HQ on Townsend Street said the control room had been fielding calls from as far away as Dublin 4 from people concerned about possible toxic fumes.[Brian Lawless/PA Wire]The fire was initially reported at 3.12am yesterday. Householders nearby reported hearing “little explosions” in the early hours of yesterday morning as the blaze spread.Around 25 fire personnel were at the scene this morning – the firefighters each staying at the ‘frontline’ for four hour periods, in line with normal procedure for high intensity work, before switching with a colleague and continuing their other shift duties.A Dublin Fire Brigade spokesperson said this morning that they could be at the scene for “several days” although it’s now hoped the all clear can be given at some stage tomorrow.Once the scene is declared safe, gardaí will enter the site to conduct forensic tests — the results of which will determine whether further investigation is warranted.  The cause of the fire is not yet known.There are no reports of any injuries.RTÉ reports that the Oxigen Environmental hopes to relocate as many of its Ballymount staff as possible. Around 60 staff have been affected by the blaze.- Additional reporting Aoife BarryRelated: Ballymount industrial estate fire could burn for rest of weekendRead: Orange alert: Coastal flood warning as 130km winds set to sweep countrylast_img read more

GameStop runs out of unlimited PS4 preorders

September 21, 2019

first_imgWhen the PlayStation 4 became available to pre-order last month, you may have heard that GameStop was able to place an unlimited amount of pre-orders. Well, if you took that to mean that GameStop had an unlimited amount of pre-orders, you’d be sorely mistaken, as the company just announced that it has run out.While it is pretty silly to announce anything as unlimited when there’s a limit to how unlimited it can be, the memo from Sony to GameStop did state that the pre-orders would be unlimited “until further notice,” which certainly means they could stop being unlimited whenever that notice is given. So, this is one of those rare times when you probably shouldn’t blame GameStop for doing GameStop-like things.You also can’t get around the brick-and-mortar pre-orders running out by placing one on the company’s website, as those have also run out. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have missed your chance to nab one of the first PS4s, as there are still other retailers in the world where you might be able to find a console at launch. There is also a chance that Sony will find a way to accomodate the high demand, and allocate GameStop — and other retailers — more units. Until then, though, you’ll have to do your pre-ordering elsewhere.It is a little strange that GameStop has cut off pre-orders, especially considering the chain is notorious for placing more pre-orders than units it’ll receive at launch. Usually, the chain fulfills the orders whenever the units trickle in, whether or not that is right at launch like a pre-order traditionally suggests. Perhaps Sony is somewhat emulating what Nintendo seemed to try with the Wii U, and is generating some kind of artificial scarcity in order to drum up even more excitement for the product.If you’re suddenly freaking out about not necessarily being able to pre-order a PS4 because you are unafraid of launch hardware or really want to own NBA 2K’s first game with LeBron James on the cover, add yourself to GameStop’s pre-order notification list. Or, head on over to Amazon.last_img read more

Canicule 6 astuces pas chères pour ne pas trop souffrir de la

September 20, 2019

first_imgCanicule : 6 astuces pas chères pour ne pas trop souffrir de la chaleurLe thermomètre s’affole ! Plus les températures augmentent et plus nos nuits sont sans sommeil. Avant même le début des grandes vacances, une vague de chaleur est en train de déferler sur l’Europe, et la France en particulier, et met nos niveaux d’énergie à plat. Parce qu’on n’a pas tous le budget d’investir dans une climatisation personnelle, Maxisciences propose quelques petits trucs pour garder le corps et le moral au frais pendant cet épisode caniculaire sans faire grimper le thermostat de son compte en banque. « Vous êtes au moins la 4e personne à me dire cela, aujourd’hui », répond une caissière d’un magasin de surgelés à une cliente qui vient de dire qu’elle avait sans doute le meilleur métier du monde actuellement.  C’est vrai, avec des températures dépassant allègrement les 30° en journée et une absence de vent, on serait tous tenté d’installer son bureau, son lit et sa tribu dans une boutique climatisée ! A défaut de vous conseiller de dormir dans un congélateur ou d’investir dans un climatiseur, on vous donne quelques indices gratuits (ou presque) dans votre quête de fraîcheur !1- On pimpe son ventilo !Si un ventilateur de base n’a jamais fait baisser les températures, il a au moins le mérite de faire circuler l’air. On n’hésite donc pas à en acheter un. Il est la base de notre équipement anti canicule. On n’oublie pas de le dépoussiérer régulièrement afin de le rendre plus efficace. On placera devant notre nouvel ami plusieurs bols ou des sachets remplis de glaçons ou des grandes bouteilles d’eau congelée. Cette petite astuce permet de rafraichir la pièce. Et si on veut s’offrir une petite pause-lecture dans un cocon bien aéré, on positionne le ventilo face à sa housse de couette (mais sans couette à l’intérieur), on y pénètre. L’air poussé par l’appareil transformera la housse en une tente très aérée. Attention ! On ne fait pas cela la nuit au risque de se réveiller avec un vilain mal de gorge. 2- On interdit de séjour les sources de chaleur On connaissait déjà la dangerosité de garder son portable allumé près de soi ou dans son lit  mais en cette période de grande chaleur, on a une raison supplémentaire de l’éloigner. On débranche ses appareils électroniques et électriques ou on les charge dans une pièce qu’on utilise moins afin de s’épargner leur rayonnement et donc une source de chaleur en plus… en trop ! 3- On investit le réfrigérateur Après avoir mis dans son frigo ses pulls pour éviter qu’ils boulochent, ses vernis pour qu’ils ne se figent pas, on débarrasse une nouvelle étagère pour y glisser son oreiller et ses draps. On les met dans un sac hermétique (pour d’évidentes raisons d’hygiène et qu’ils ne sentent pas le melon !) et on les y laisse toute une journée. Le soir avant de se coucher, on sort son linge de nuit et on refait son lit. Début de nuit fraîche garanti… On peut faire de même avec les vêtements que l’on va porter le lendemain4- On décore ses fenêtres À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?On sait déjà qu’en cas de grosse chaleur, il faut fermer ses fenêtres, volets et/ou baisser les stores dans la journée pour éviter qu’elle n’entre dans la maison mais qu’une fois la nuit venue il faut les ouvrir pour aérer et tenter de récupérer un peu de fraîcheur. Par un temps caniculaire, on humidifie ses rideaux, des linges et on les place devant les fenêtres ouvertes ou entrebâillées afin de rafraîchir les pièces. On crée aussi des courants d’air pour profiter d’une légère brise. 5- On se relooke et on s’équipeAux oubliettes les tenues moulantes et/ou en matières synthétiques qui font souvent transpirer. On opte pour des matières naturelles et respirantes et on choisit des vêtements amples afin que l’air, aussi rare soit-il, puisse circuler.  Un chapeau et une crème adéquate pour se protéger du soleil sont évidemment obligatoires. Surtout, on pense à humidifier généreusement un foulard, un bandana qu’on noue autour de sa nuque pour réguler sa température. Une astuce éprouvée lors de méharées dans plusieurs déserts de la planète !   Dans son sac ou sa sacoche, on glisse un brumisateur (qui aura passé la nuit au réfrigérateur) dont on s’aspergera régulièrement au long de la journée. Mais on prendra garde à bien se sécher en tamponnant avec un mouchoir en papier afin que l’eau ne s’évapore pas et ne dessèche pas davantage la peau. Attention ! On n’habille pas son bébé avec des vêtements mouillés. Cela peut être mauvais pour sa santé. 6- On consomme l’eau de manière raisonnable  Inutile de prendre une douche trop froide au risque de faire subir un choc thermique à son corps, habitué à ses 37°. Tiède, elle sera moins traumatisante et plus reposante pour l’organisme. Autre fausse bonne idée, consommer un thé très chaud, comme les Touaregs. La température du corps va s’emballer et transpirer davantage. Même si la sueur est indispensable à l’évacuation des toxines, trop abondante elle peut mener à une déshydratation. On se contente de consommer des boissons (non alcoolisées) à températures modérées. Ni trop chaudes ni trop froides. On ne néglige pas non plus les bains de pieds. Ces derniers, comme d’autres extrémités du corps (mains, tête) agissent comme des thermo-régulateurs.

Rooney doesnt want special treatment at DC United

first_imgDC United skipper Wayne Rooney, doesn’t like the idea of being treated differently at the club and he is also loving life in the United States.Life in the United States of America for Wayne Rooney has been a completely different scenario compared to what he lived in England, his move to DC United has been arguably one of the best decisions of his life when thinking about the best retirement possible for one of the best careers of an English player.Other great players from the Three Lions have also decided to go on this MLS path and succeeded, David Beckham is the most famous case as the former Manchester United player went to play for LA Galaxy for a while and had a very rewarding experience that even convinced him to stay and keep working as a businessman in the US.Nobody knew how well Wayne Rooney was going to adapt to the MLS, but the legendary striker responded quickly to those doubts and soon started his very own revolution at DC United.Today, the England all-time top scorer has the club from the capital close to the playoffs and he is delivering incredible performances every week. Just this past Wednesday against Toronto, Wayne produced a brilliant free-kick that made headlines around the world..@MenInBlazers’ #MiBWeekOfWayne continues!

United (@dcunited) October 18, 2018We may think that a major star like Wayne Rooney who is already regarded as one of the most celebrated English players in history, would like having the star treatment.But we would be wrong to assume that because Rooney is actually a man who doesn’t like living large like other football players, he is a family man who always struggled with the exposure he had back in England and now loves being completely unnoticed in America.The fact that people in the US are not that aware of football, gives major stars like Wayne Rooney the opportunity to live a more relaxed life with his family.When talking to the Men in Blazers soccer show from the US, Wayne explains how his life is at DC United.“If you’re going to be part of a team you have to be part of a team all in and do the same things,” said Wayne during the interview.“I don’t want special treatment because I’ve had a career in England. I want to be treated the same as the players here.”“I’m part of this team. It’s not rocket science – if you can go and form relationships with those players, speak to them, it helps.”wayne rooney, harry kane, englandReport: Rooney talks Engalnd Kane and Guardiola George Patchias – September 12, 2019 Wayne Rooney has spoken of his England record, Harry Kane smashing it and Pep Guardiola for England.In an interview on his Wayne Rooney podcast…“I know a lot of players who have come here, big players in other countries, they haven’t tended to form those relationships and buy into what the team are doing.”🗣️”It’s actually normal stuff which people do everyday in their lives, which I’ve actually missed out on a bit.” MIB SHOW @WayneRooney SPECIAL AIRS MONDAY, OCT. 22 AT 5:30 P.M.

My friends would finish work and we’d play about 9 pm in the evening. But 9 pm in the evening is 4 pm here and right in the middle of the kids finishing school so I need to try and find a slot.”“But just to go out with my children here is a lot different to back home. You can do it back home but it just had to be more planned.”“Here I can pick them up from school and ask what they want to do; cinema, shops, and restaurants.”“Whereas at home you’re looking over your shoulder wondering who’s watching you, who’s filming you whereas here it’s a little bit more chilled out.”“It’s actually strange, it’s normal stuff people do every day which I’ve missed out on which is great to do,” he concluded.Wayne Rooney’s goal in the first half lifted D.C.

Nirav Modi scam PNB staff bought assets overseas stashed funds

September 5, 2019

first_img(L-R) Naomi Watts, Nirav Modi and Deborra-Lee Furness attend the Nirav Modi U.S. Boutique grand opening at Nirav Modi Boutique on September 8, 2015 in New York City.Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesPunjab National Bank (PNB) employees linked to the Rs 13,800 crore loan fraud have bought assets abroad and maintained overseas bank accounts, investigators have said. Details unearthed by investigating agencies CBI and the Enforcement Directorate reveal that the employees may have used funds from the Nirav Modi scam to create overseas assets, the Economic Times reported on Wednesday.The unnamed sources told the business daily that the bank has started proceedings to recoup the funds from the rogue employees. The bank has sought legal opinion in the matter, the report said.”While only a few employees have been named till now, more employees could be involved in the fraud. The bank has been intimated about the development,” the report quoted an undisclosed source as saying. “Investigating agencies like CBI and ED do not have jurisdiction outside India and may not be able to recover the money. A legal strategy is being put in place as to how to deal with the employee situation,” one of the sources added.In a revelation that rattled Indian banking sector and plunged the markets into chaos, PNB revealed in February that diamond merchant Nirav Modi had defrauded the bank of Rs 13,800 crore by manipulating the Letter of Undertaking (LoU) in connivance with bank staff.Dozens of LoUs issued by the senior staff at one of the Mumbai branches of the bank enabled Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi avail millions of dollars from overseas branches of other Indian banks.LoUs are used to provide credit guarantee of up to $20 million for exporters at a time. Public sector Category-I banks had the permission to offer these guarantees. In the PNB scam, multiple fraudulent letters were issued by the bank staff, allowing jewelers Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi defraud banks. Overseas branches of many leading banks advanced funds to Modi on the PNB guarantees, resulting in massive loses to India’s No. 2 lender.Investigators have found that the jewelers, instead of using funds for the stated purpose round-tripped the cash through the hawala route. In most cases, Modi and associates brought the money raised overseas through LoUs back to India the same day through fake transactions to Indian shell companies they owned.Not an easy process”In Nirav Modi’s companies, money was diverted after a few days through bogus transactions, but in Choksi’s companies, including Gitanjali Gems, there were many instances when the money returned to India within 24 hours,” an officer involved in the probe said.Investigators believe that more PNB staff may have been part of the Nirav Modi scam and stashed funds away overseas. CBI has booked seven PNB employees in connection with the massive fraud. While the bank has started processes to recover the money, legal experts have said it may not be an easy process. “It would be tough to recover these assets as in most instances people don’t create assets in their own name outside India. PNB will have to eventually prove in the court of law that a conspiracy was hatched by their employees against the bank and that the bank is a victim,” Zulfiquar Memon, Managing Partner of law firm MZM Legal, told ET.last_img read more
