first_imgJose Mourinho Bale scores the winner as Spurs beat Brighton 2:59 – Advertisement – Wales will be without manager Ryan Giggs for all three matches, after he was arrested on suspicion of assault.His assistant coach, former Watford and Sheffield United defender Robert Page, will instead take charge of the team for the next three games and will be supported by Arsenal coach Albert Stuivenberg. “I think he’s getting better and better and better and today I felt that he could play 90 minutes but it’s not about can or cannot,” Mourinho said after the victory in Bulgaria.“It’s about managing the situation and keeping safe because he’s a player that needs to be safe. “Wales have two matches in the Nations League and I expect him to play but if they care as much about him as we do they have to manage the recovering periods.“They have to manage how many days difference between one match and another, they have to manage the minutes that he plays and they should not let him get into fatigue levels. Jose Mourinho was pleased with the attitude of his team during their 3-1 win over Bulgarian champions Ludogorets – having criticised their approach to week’s loss in Antwerpcenter_img “He’s a player that’s had enough problems in the past. He’s working so much and we all are working so much and so carefully with him that we don’t want to destroy the work that everybody has been doing for the past couple of months.- Advertisement – Gareth Bale played for 65 minutes against Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League on ThursdayImage:Gareth Bale played for 65 minutes for Tottenham against Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday 0:32 Jose Mourinho is calling on Wales to take care of Gareth Bale while he is on international duty and not “destroy” the work Tottenham have done with him.Giggs has returned to the Wales squad after missing October’s international games because of a knee injury.- Advertisement – “I think from what I’m reading that it is not (Ryan) Giggs that is responsible for these matches,” added Mourinho. “I’m sorry about it because on the previous fixtures he called me, we spoke about Ben Davies – not Gareth because Gareth was not there – but we spoke about Ben Davies.“We shared opinions about the situation which is probably not going to happen this time and the fact that one of the coaches is an Arsenal coach doesn’t make me very comfortable.“Honestly, it doesn’t make me very comfortable. I think national teams should have coaches that work exclusively for them and not coaches that work for other clubs.” They face the United States in a friendly at the Liberty Stadium on November 12 before crucial Nations League games against the Republic of Ireland on November 15 and Finland on November 18, both at the Cardiff City Stadium.Tottenham have been nurturing Bale back to full fitness after he rejoined the club on loan from Real Madrid in September.He scored the winner against Brighton last Sunday and played over an hour in the 3-1 win over Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League on Thursday.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Walkouts do more harm than good

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In regard to student protests/walkouts: This isn’t the answer. The protests won’t correct the problem of demented shooters carrying out their violence. The protests put many students in a group situation with no protection.Putting an armed guard in our schools won’t correct the problem either. It will make the armed guard the first target.Very often, the shooter is another angry student. Protests keep people riled. We need to change the thought process, not incite more violence.The schools are there to teach. Walkouts disrupt this process.Richard Van PattenGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Germany and France to develop joint next-generation army tank

first_imgBoth agreements were signed by French Defense Minister Florence Parly and her German counterpart Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the German Defense Ministry said in a statement. “With this project, Germany and France are sending an important signal for European cooperation in defense policy,” the ministry said.The project will be led by Germany, with Berlin and Paris each bearing half of the costs. It is “intended to replace the German Leopard 2 tanks and the French Leclerc tanks from the mid-2030s,” according to the ministry.  France and Germany in February gave the green light for building a prototype of Europe’s next-generation fighter jet, effectively launching a project long held up by disputes over how the industrial work would be divided.The 150-million-euro ($162-million) contract, financed equally by both countries, aims to create prototypes of the stealth delta-wing jet as well as integrated drones and network infrastructure of the new system by 2026. France and Germany have signed agreements to develop a next-generation tank to equip both of their armies from the mid-2030s, the German Defense Ministry announced Wednesday.Dubbed the Main Ground Combat System (MGCS), the tank project sits alongside a planned future jet fighter as part of pivotal military cooperation between the two neighbors. The deal announced Tuesday includes a so-called “framework agreement” laying out how the project will be organised, as well as an “implementing arrangement” setting out the specifications for the new fighting vehicle. center_img Topics :last_img read more

Denmark’s PFA stays underweight in EM equities as China risk looms large

first_img“If China were a traditional market economy, the risk of a financial crisis with a big fall on the housing market and in investments would be imminent,” Henriksen said.For the time being China’s leaders had managed to keep the crisis at bay, he said, but despite this, investors probably had to adjust to a gradual slowdown in China in the coming years.“Chinese growth indicators are at a lower level than before and so we expect that growth in China will drop in the next few years,” he said.“This is one of the reasons we are underweighting emerging markets shares in our portfolios,” Henriksen said.He said PFA had been underweight in emerging markets equities for a long time.PFA Pension, which has total investment assets of DKK400bn (€53.6bn) has DKK2.7bn invested in Chinese assets, primarily through Hong Kong, with DKK2.5bn of this in equities and DKK200m in bonds.The pension fund invests in China primarily through external managers and does not have an QFII License to invest directly in Chinese financial markets.After a year of strong price rises for Chinese equities, shares fell significantly in June and July of this year, and the Chinese authorities had taken a number of different steps to try to halt this slide, Henriksen said.Interest rates and banks’ reserve requirements have been cut several times over the last year, and the authorities in July also intervened to stop trade in some shares and prevent large shareholders from selling their stock.Last week, the People’s Bank of China also devalued the renminbi to bolster Chinese competitiveness, Henriksen noted.Although the Chinese leadership had demonstrated once again that it was ready to use all means to prevent an economic hard landing, the question was whether this could continue, he said.“The Communist party has a monopoly on political power in China, but that monopoly could be threatened the day China is hit by a serious economic crash,” Henriksen said.Meanwhile London-based investment advisers CrossBorder Capital, commented that while China’s decision to devalue currency may look like a small token move, the parallel acknowledgement that the rate would in future be more determined by market forces was significant.“It surely acknowledges what many of us have feared that world markets are in a currency war,” it said.However, Jan Dehn, head of research at investment manager Ashmore dismissed the argument that China had joined the global currency war and would export deflation to the rest of the world. Instead, China was pursuing a far more constructive, rational and forward-looking strategy, Dehn said.“This strategy involves, amongst other things, achieving global reserve currency status in the near-term.”Dehn said: “For this reason, China has absolutely no interest in abusing its own currency via competitive devaluations.” Denmark’s biggest commercial pension fund PFA is remaining underweight in emerging market equities due to of the continuing uncertainty surrounding Chinese economic growth.Henrik Henriksen, chief strategist of PFA Pension, said China would be the key risk facing investors over the medium-term.“The biggest risk for the global economy in the next three to five years, is a hard landing in the Chinese economy,” he said.Since the financial crisis there had been a hefty increase in debt in the Chinese economy, he added.last_img read more

LOTOS to supply natural gas produced in Norway to Polish firm

first_imgPGNiG Supply & Trading (PST), a member of the Polish Oil and Gas Company Group (PGNiG), has become the exclusive recipient of natural gas produced in Norway by LOTOS Norge, a LOTOS Group company.LOTOS has interest in the Heimdal gas field off Norway; Image by Øyvind Hagen/EquinorLOTOS Norge is engaged in exploration and production activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.Under contracts signed by the two companies, gas purchases will be carried out from October 1, 2019, to October 1, 2021, with an option to extend the contract term until October 1, 2025. The supply volumes will depend on LOTOS Norge’s output, PGNiG said on Wednesday.“With its immense gas and oil production potential, Norway is one of the key directions of expansion for PGNiG,” said Maciej Woźniak, Vice President for Trade at PGNiG.“The LOTOS Group is our strategic customer for gas in Poland. We are glad that we have been able to extend our cooperation to the Norwegian market. As PGNiG, we implement a strategy of diversifying natural gas supplies and we are getting ready to start importing Norwegian gas to Poland. In 2022, after the launch of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline, we will start direct and uninterrupted gas supplies from Norway to Poland on competitive terms. The implementation of this project will also open the possibility of deepening cooperation between LOTOS and PGNiG,” added Woźniak.Tomasz Maj, President of the Management Board at LOTOS Upstream, entity responsible for the implementation of the LOTOS E&P segment’s strategy, said: “The production segment is crucial for LOTOS not only for economic reasons, but also because it ensures uninterrupted feedstock supplies from the company’s own fields. The agreement reached with PGNiG is attractive business-wise, all the more so because natural gas accounts for approximately three quarters of our output in Norway. The contract we have signed proves that Polish companies are able to build a strong position on the international commodity markets through synergies,’” said“The current 2P hydrocarbon reserves in Norway amount to 35 mboe, of which as much as 40% is natural gas,” stressed Maj.At the end of 2017, LOTOS held interests in 26 licenses for exploration, appraisal and production of hydrocarbon reserves in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.Since 2010, PGNiG has been a strategic supplier of natural gas to the LOTOS Group, and since 2015 it has also supplied crude oil for processing at the Gdańsk refinery. In 2019, the two companies have worked together to develop the LNG market on the Baltic Sea, offering commercial bunkering of LNG sourced from the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.Meanwhile, PGNiG has been granted a license to drill an appraisal well in the Norwegian Sea. The drilling will begin following the completion of the Shrek exploration well in the same license, which PGNiG spudded in August.Spotted a typo? Have something more to add to the story?

Baby ‘unharmed if pregnant mum has chemotherapy’

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share Women who are given chemotherapy during pregnancy do not run a risk of harming their baby, doctors reported in The Lancet Oncology on Friday.European cancer specialists looked at 68 pregnancies, producing 70 children, during which 236 cycles of cancer drugs were administered.On average, the women were 18 weeks pregnant when their cancer was diagnosed. The children were born at 36 weeks on average.The investigators assessed the children at birth, at the age of 18 months, and at either five, eight, nine, 11, 14 or 18 years.They examined the children for general health, damage to the central nervous system, heart and hearing problems, and tested their cognitive skills.They found no evidence that the children were harmed by the cancer treatment, said the study.Babies born prematurely tended to do less well in cognitive tests, but this is common among pre-term infants across the general population, it noted.“We show that children who were prenatally exposed to chemotherapy do as well as other children,” the paper concluded.Doctors should not be fearful about administering cancer drugs to pregnant women, nor should they be tempted into inducing early birth in the belief that this will protect the baby, it said.“In practice, it is possible to administer chemotherapy from 14 weeks gestational age onwards,” said the paper.“To allow the bone marrow to recover and to minimise the risk of maternal and foetal sepsis and haemorrage, delivery should be planned at least three weeks after the last cycle of chemotherapy, and chemotherapy should not be given after 35 weeks since spontaneous labour becomes more probable.”The study added a small note of caution, saying further work is needed to assess whether chemo causes any long-term problems.The research was led by Frederic Amant of Leuven Catholic University’s Cancer Institute.YAHOO News HealthLifestyle Baby ‘unharmed if pregnant mum has chemotherapy’ by: – February 10, 2012center_img 13 Views   no discussions Share Tweetlast_img read more

GUV STILL NO TO CLASS OPENING | Defensor: Contain virus, mend economy first

first_imgIn the face-to-face class set up, physical distancing would be observed, said Belleza. He, however, acknowledged that August is still three months away and he is hopeful there would be no additional COVID-19 cases in the country and in Iloilo in particular. Defensor, however, now appeared to have differing views with Iloilo City’s Mayor Jerry Treñas. “Ang bagay nga puede mapaumod, ipamuod ta anay,” says Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. He was referring to the scheduled reopening of schools on Aug. 24 set by the Department of Education. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN “Ang bagay nga puede mapaumod, ipamuod ta anay,” Defensor reiterated. He was referring to various learning methods like online, modular or blended. He was referring to the scheduled reopening of schools on Aug. 24 set by the Department of Education (DepEd). Education secretary Leonor Briones also called on public school teachers and employees to report back to work on June 1, 2020 to prepare for the new school year. He would rather forego school year 2020-2021, according to Defensor, so that everybody could focus on two essential moves – containing the viral illness and rebuilding the economy.   He added “I am confident the public and private educational institutions have initiatives that can give everyone access to education.” In areas considered high-risk, online classes may be observed for as long as there is internet connection and the teachers and students have the needed devices. It is the school principals who would determine what teaching modules are applicable to their schoolchildren’s particular circumstances and needs, said Dr. Lea Belleza, spokesperson of DepEd Region 6. Defensor, for his part, said circumstances may be different in the province compared to Iloilo City and this has pushed Treñas to agree on the resumption of classes. He warned that resuming classes while there is no indication yet that the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has effectively been combatted could put more pressure on the already skidding economy. It is possible to divide a class – one half for the morning session and the other half for the afternoon session – to achieve physical distancing among students./PN “Puede nga lain ang panan-awan sang Iloilo City because lain ang setting sang syudad,” the governor added.  “Puede man kahulat ang aton eskwelahan,” Defensor said. “Maayo gid subong nga duha ang aton ginabantayan.” As of June 16, DepEd national enrollment data for SY 2020-2021 showed that there are 11,302,382 learners nationwide who have registered using remote or virtual enrollment system for both public and private schools in the basic education level. Of this number, 10, 941, 619 learners are currently enrolled in public schools and 355, 045 have registered in private schools. ILOILO – Gov. Arthur “Toto” Defensor Jr.  maintained his opposition to the reopening of  schools on Aug. 24. Face-to-face teaching may still be possible in areas deemed as low-risk for COVID-19 transmission or do not have internet connection needed for online classes. Blended learning, according to Breones, is a combination of varied approaches to teaching and learning, and will be adjusted based on the situation and/or needs of the school and the students. “We cannot let the fear of the coronavirus kill the opportunity for people to acquire knowledge and skills,” said Treñas. Treñas recently issued a statement encouraging students to enroll in school despite the pandemic. The national enrollment data for basic education covers public and private schools as well as State Universities and Colleges and Local Universities and Colleges – including Kindergarten, Elementary or Grades 1 to 6, Junior High School or Grades 7 to 10, and Senior High School or Grades 11 and 12 as well as non-graded learners with disabilities and those under the Alternative Learning System program.last_img read more

Chelsea ask players to return for possible Premier League restart

first_imgChelsea have asked their players to return to the United Kingdom by May 3 with the Premier League stepping up plans to complete the season from June 8. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is hopeful of shocking Bayern Munich again in the Champions League Christian Pulisic is currently in his hometown of Hershey, Pennsylvania in the United States, and he is among a group who will need to return by Sunday which also includes Willian and Emerson, who are both in Brazil. It is understood that Chelsea will be flexible with any player who suffer travel disruptions due to the coronavirus outbreak. “I’m back in the United States and it’s definitely good to be back with the family at this time,” Pulisic said in an interview with the Chelsea website last week. “They are all doing well; they are all healthy so it’s good. “Obviously in the US the virus has definitely been growing in certain spots but the town where I am is actually not too bad. There are a couple of cases but nothing like the scale of other places. Hopefully, things can start to slow down anyway.” The UK government are set to introduce a 14-day quarantine on people returning from overseas and the footballers will be expected to comply.
