first_imgAC Milan manger Gennaro Gattuso has expressed his satisfaction that the famous Derby della Madonnina against arch-rivals Inter Milan means “something significant” againThe derby was originally postponed last month after Davide Astori’s death and will be played on Wednesday evening at the San Siro.Inter had suffered a turbulent run of form at the beginning of 2018 with the former title challengers now fighting for a spot in the Champions League for next season. But Gattuso is adamant that their run of poor form is now in the past with Luciano Spalletti’s side having scored 10 goals in their past four matches.“Inter have changed in recent weeks, they’ve scored 10 goals and conceded zero,” said the 40 year-old, according to Football-Italia.“They’re in good form and some players have got back to their best. We’re also in form, we did well against Juventus and after years the derby is back to being something significant.“I hope we can repeat our performance at Juventus Stadium.“The fans have to be good in pushing us, they’re already done their share by breaking the record for sales, now we have to fire them up with a good start.”Gattuso, who replaced the fired Vincenzo Montella back in November, has revealed that there has been a change in the atmosphere at the club of late and has urged the players to brace themselves for a recent resurgent Inter side.“We’re experiencing a different atmosphere now, the fans are always proud of us after every game. We need to improve our mentality and desire, fight with a knife between our teeth.Stefano Sensi, inter milanReport: Inter go top with win over Udinese George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Inter Milan are top of Serie A after beating Udinese to make it three wins out of three.Antonio Conte’s career at Inter Milan, could…“It’s a derby, a clash in which the team lower in the table often wins. Inter have quality, they’re in form and they’re playing good football.“They’re back to being the team that played so well three months ago, so we’ll need an excellent game on a technical and tactical level.”“Is it a cup final? We’ve been playing a cup final for some time, we know we can’t get it wrong because we’re chasing. “Tomorrow will be a difficult game like all the others.”Recently Leonardo Bonucci called for the Milan board to invest in the squad for the upcoming summer transfer window in a bid to return the club back to their glory days. But the comments were not met with enthusiasm by Gattuso.“Bonucci has to be a captain, I didn’t like what he said. Now we need to pedal with our heads down until the end of the season.” insisted the coach.“I have a direct relationship with my lads, they know what I want and what I think, I don’t want to see anyone getting offended.“With [Hakan] Calhanoglu, we talked and it’s all ok.”last_img read more

Environmental Health Department officials earlier today joined Kew Town and the TCI Haitian community in a walk about in advance of a clean-up set for this weekend. Director of the EHD Kenrick Neely said the walk through was focused on garnering support for the effort. Neely explained that this kick off weekend clean up may actually launch a series which has been widely promoted within the Haitian community in churches and on radio. The effort complements hurricane preparedness initiatives too as not only will garbage be picked up using donated materials, but there will be a chance for larger items to be cleared which reduces the danger of projectiles during a storm. Mr. Neely explained that the Environmental Health Department will collect garbage once it is bagged and they will pick up the larger items. The Kew Town clean-up is slated for this Saturday at 6am; residents are encouraged to support the move where there will be heavy concentration in the Dock Yard part of Kew Town. Last weekend, residents of Leeward Palms also cleaned up their district; that initiative was led by Ezra Taylor. Murdered father of two, shot in the headlast_img read more

The Ministry of Border Control and Employment Introduces New Immigrant ID Cards

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, December 14, 2017 – Providenciales – Immigrants living and working in the Turks and Caicos Islands will soon be the holders of plastic identification status cards as proof of their legality in the country, as another milestone in the long journey to overhaul the Ministry of Border Control and Employment is reached.This initiative was one of the more critical areas of focus for the Ministry as a measure in combating the expansive circulation of forged government documents among immigrant workers and residents locally.    As promised by the Deputy Premier, Hon. Sean R. Astwood in his August 2017 ministerial speech in the House of Assembly, the Ministry has now moved to a more secure and controlled form of status documents that will limit the opportunities for replication and circumvention of the system.The new ID cards will be utilized for both labour and immigration products, as they are set to replace the familiar paper cards for Work Permits, Freelance Permits, Permanent Residence, Residents Permits and Homeowners Permits.   Additionally, there will now be cards issued for persons endorsed on the different products.The initiative, which was approved through amendments to the 2016 Immigration Regulations during the November 15th meeting of Cabinet, improves the security of the government issued ID, provides a convenient way to carry proof of status, and facilitates proof of identity for endorsed individuals.   On December 1st the departments commenced training and are conducting familiarization exercises internally, with stakeholders and with the general public.   This process will continue over the upcoming weeks.The Ministry aims to have the paper cards out of circulation by the end of 2018 and will commence distribution of the new cards by January 15, 2018.Press Release: TCIG Related Items:last_img read more

Residents can offer feedback on appointment of David Nisleit as new Chief

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Residents will be able to offer feedback on the appointment of David Nisleit as the city’s next top cop during two City Council meetings later this month, council President Myrtle Cole announced Friday.Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Thursday named Nisleit, a current assistant San Diego police chief, as the successor to Chief Shelley Zimmerman following a nationwide search.Nisleit’s appointment must be confirmed by a majority council vote.Public hearings will be held on Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. and Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 202 C St. The council will take a vote on the matter on Feb. 26.Though the search process included non-binding input from a panel of community members, which chose Nisleit as its top pick, critics contend that the process relied on non-public backroom deliberations.Councilman David Alvarez said he would push for greater transparency during the council’s proceedings with Nisleit.“The public needs to hear detailed plans from the chief on how he will address the police department’s staffing crisis,” he said. “Unlike the secret panels established to conduct the search, the confirmation process for the new chief must be transparent.”The community board as well as one made up of law enforcement and other professionals interviewed a half-dozen finalists from across the country.The names of those runner-up candidates were withheld to protect their privacy, according to a spokesman for the mayor.The names of those appointed to the two review boards were released Thursday by the mayor’s office.Nisleit, 52, a three-decade veteran of the San Diego police force, said his top priorities include achieving full department staffing by casting a “wide net” for recruits while focusing on local, diverse candidates and continuing to bolster community-policing programs.There currently are more than 200 vacant positions in the department, which has not been fully staffed in over a decade.Faulconer and Nisleit agree that a recently negotiated police contract featuring higher pay coupled with a national marketing effort will help fill those positions.

ASA Biodiesel Legislation Included in Farm Aid Package

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) is pleased that the farm aid package put forth by Republican congressional leaders includes legislation that will allow vehicle fleets regulated under the Energy Policy Act of 1992 to earn credits toward meeting EPACT requirements by operating on a 20/80 percent blend of biodiesel/diesel fuel. “Biodiesel is a viable alternative fuel for fleet managers, a cleaner-burning fuel that’s better for the environment, and passage of this legislation will help farmers because it will add 11 cents per bushel to soybean prices,” stated ASA Chairman Mark Berg, a soybean producer from Tripp, South Dakota.”Soybean farmers couldn’t be more pleased that our biodiesel legislation is included in the farm aid package. Biodiesel has been one of ASA’s top legislative priorities for more than two years. This biodiesel legislation will not create any new tax breaks or subsidies. It will not result in any additional mandates or requirements to use biodiesel or B-20, and will not directly impact any federal or state government budgets or spending. What it will do, is give fleet managers another option and it will help producers by improving soybean prices,” Berg said. “We would like to see biodiesel become an established alternative fuel and make a contribution toward achieving EPACT’s goals. All we are asking for is the opportunity to compete fairly within the EPACT market.”The Energy Policy Act of 1992 calls for alternative fuels to replace imported petroleum used by the transportation sector by 10 percent by the year 2000 and 30 percent by 2010. Despite this requirement, imported petroleum use in this sector is steadily increasing. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, petroleum import dependence in this sector was about 40 percent in 1992 and will reach almost 60 percent by the year 2005.Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning diesel fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as soybean oil that is often in surplus. An independent study has verified that the 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel blend (B-20) reduces air pollution when used with a catalytic converter. Compared to petroleum diesel, biodiesel blends have significantly lower emissions of the pollutants that may be cancer causing. B-20 reductions are more than or around 50 percent in particulate matter, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide in comparison to petroleum diesel emissions.last_img read more
