first_imgThe Tripura government will construct 1,477 check dams across the State to control floods, and grow fisheries and duckeries, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said on Friday. Tripura currently has 332 check dams. “The government will construct 1,447 check dams with financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA),” Mr. Deb said at a programme here. The dams will be built under a ₹1,000 crore project, he said while inaugurating a workshop on ‘Product and Industrial use of Bamboo.’ “The Project for Sustainable Catchment Forest Management would help in controlling floods, growing fisheries and duckeries and the places would be of tourist attraction. The project will also be designed to reduce soil erosion that leads to siltation of rivers and water bodies resulting in flash-floods,” the Chief Minister said.

Both Vijay Shankar and Hardik Pandya for World Cup? Sunil Gavaskar has this to say

first_imgNearly a year after almost losing India the final of the Nidahas Trophy against Bangladesh, the scars have faded away for Vijay Shankar. He had struggled with the bat in a tense chase before Dinesh Karthik’s blitzkrieg sealed a last-ball victory.Vijay Shankar is yet to come up with an international innings to overshadow his last over struggle against Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy final but his 18-ball 27 in the Wellington T20I showed he was batting with confidence again. Vijay benefitted with an India comeback thanks to Hardik Pandya’s suspension but now stands with an outside chance to book the last available ticket to England for the World Cup.India legend Sunil Gavaskar advocates the need to have an additional seaming all-rounder for English conditions and believes Shankar has a chance of making the cut.”Vijay Shankar has a chance for the World Cup. You need an extra seamer in England. He is a good all round fielder too. He showed in the ODI (5th ODI in Wellington) where he got the team out of trouble with the bat. He read the game situation well with his experience of having led in domestic cricket. You build hopes on a player who reads match situations well. He should also be under consideration,” he told India Today.But Vijay Shankar still needs to do some work as a bowler. He bowls a few yards slower than Hardik Pandya and doesn’t have the sharp bouncer to boot. By the evidence of Shankar’s short international stint, his bowling hasn’t inspired confidence of India captains he has played under yet. He didn’t come close to completing his 10-over quota in any of the odis he played under Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and didn’t get to bowl in the T20 against New Zealand.advertisementWATCH: Hitman @ImRo45’s guest appearance on Chahal TVWhy does Rohit want to give @yuzi_chahal a batting promotion? – by @RajalAroraFind out here https://t.co/3T5E4KDGEx pic.twitter.com/iI9IZmkoV1BCCI (@BCCI) February 3, 2019But Gavaskar wants Shankar to be given a long rope before the selectors sit in judgment. “I think he should be playing all the three T20 games. Give him games after games and you would know if he has what it takes. Because if there is a situation that even after the five odis vs Australia, we don’t find a fourth fast bowler we can rely on, than we should be open to having Hardik Pandya as the fourth seamer in the squad and Vijay Shankar as an additional option,” he said.While Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuveneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami are certainties for the World Cup squad, the likes of Mohammed Khalil, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj remain in contention for the reserve fast bowlers berth.Also Read | Virat Kohli can bat at No.4 depending on conditions in England: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | You are my batting inspiration, Smriti Mandhana jokes with Yuzvendra ChahalAlso Read | Sunil Gavaskar on Rishabh Pant’s failure in Wellington: Anybody can fail in one matchAlso See:last_img read more

Tuchel denies wanting Rabiot return

first_imgThomas Tuchel has denied asking for wantaway midfielder Adrien Rabiot to be reinstated into his Paris Saint-Germain squad.Rabiot has not featured for the Ligue 1 champions since informing the club in December that he did not wish to sign a new contract.The 23-year-old’s deal expires at the end of this season and he has been heavily linked to Barcelona, while PSG have a shortfall of their own in his position after Marco Verratti suffered an ankle injury.

The signing of Leandro Paredes from Zenit has remedied those concerns to an extent, although it was reported Tuchel’s preference was to reintegrate Rabiot.Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash at Lyon, however, Tuchel presented a united front with his club.”I did not ask for Rabiot’s reinstatement,” he told reporters.”The situation is the same as in November. The club decided to suspend Adrien.”I can understand the club and I accept this decision. The situation has not changed.”We’re coming for you on Sunday, @OL_English#AllezParis pic.twitter.com/QRhUFBXGla— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) February 1, 2019Tuchel went on to praise the signing of Argentina international Paredes.”I say clearly yes, I am very satisfied,” he said. “I really believe he can be a very important player for us.”He has the quality, the personality to play for PSG. He has a good vision of the game.”He can accelerate the game with his quality, make a lot of passes. He can find good positions on the pitch to help others, when we have the ball. This is his strength.”Verratti remains sidelined alongside left-back Layvin Kurzawa, but Tuchel added the duo may be able to return to training at the start of next week.last_img read more

Martino, Berhalter express mutual respect

first_imgTata Martino and Gregg Berhalter are set to square off again Sunday, this time on a grander stage than their previous meetings in MLS.  Martino, the Mexico coach who previously led Atlanta United, holds a 4-1 advantage over Berhalter, the U.S. coach who coached the Columbus Crew, in previous meetings. That one win for Berhalter, however, was significant, with current U.S. goalkeeper Zach Steffen helping the Crew win a shootout after a 0-0 draw that put them into the next round of the 2017 playoffs at Atlanta United’s expense. Despite the history, there appears to be no animosity between the two coaches, who will lead their respective national teams into the Gold Cup final at Soldier Field on Sunday night. In fact, there exists a mutual admiration between the two men.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare “I have a lot of respect for the person and manager. I think he’s among the best coaches I faced in MLS. Evidentially, the football he practices needs time. I think that’s what he had in the friendlies,” Martino said before adding, “It’s not easy the way Gregg wants his team to play.” Berhalter also highlighted Martino’s human side and complimented the Argentine’s playing style. “I really like him as a coach. I think he’s, first of all, a very nice person, a very good person,” Berhalter said. “Also, the way his teams play, he’s very clear, very specific. He gets them to compete, there’s a very certain, specific intensity level that he gets with his teams. “I really like the offensive transition that they perform. I really like the defensive pressing that they do. There’s nice interchanging movement on the wings – they get three players on the wings and that really create problems for each opponent. Overall, I have a lot of respect for him. His Atlanta teams really performed well. They had some good talent, and I’m looking forward to the match tomorrow.” Obviously, both coaches know each other well and Berhalter said he and his staff have watched every match of the Martino era as they’ve kept an eye on the regional rival’s progress and later jumped into scouting the final. Gregg Berhalter USMNT 06222019When asked how he stacked up and how long he’d been watching Berhalter’s side, Martino quipped, “since the manager was in Columbus.” Both managers took over their teams in January, but Martino was not a candidate for the U.S. job. General Manager Earnie Stewart said during the coaching search that the Americans’ coach needed to be fluent in English. Despite being overlooked, Martino said he has no desire to send a message to the U.S. Federation with Sunday’s match. “I think is that the United States is in very good hands. Gregg is coaching the United States national team, I’m managing Mexico’s national team,” the 56-year-old said. “Tomorrow there’s no lesson of any type. We’re two managers, the teams in front of us are in front of us and one will go out happy and the other sad.” We will find out who is who Sunday, with kickoff set for 9 p.m. ET.last_img read more

TEF Provides Additional $350M for EXIM Bank Loan Facility

first_img The Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) has allocated an additional $350 million to the National Export-Import (EXIM) Bank of Jamaica to continue the provision of loans to the operators of small and medium-sized tourism enterprises (SMTEs).The allocation represents the second tranche of the $1-billion TEF/EXIM Bank Jamaica loan facility, which was launched in September 2016 with an initial $300 million capital injection by the tourism entity.The facility enables the industry stakeholders to access between $5 million and $25 million at five per cent interest for five years.Among those eligible are operators involved in spa and wellness; gastronomy – restaurants and food-related businesses; small accommodations; shopping and galleries; attractions; knowledge networks; and sports and entertainment as well as manufacturers and suppliers.Speaking at the official handover at the Tourism Ministry in New Kingston on Wednesday, August 30, portfolio Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, said the loan facility was a critical financial lifeline that had allowed and would enable more sector stakeholders to create jobs, generate growth and facilitate economic well-being.Additionally, he said it represented the Government’s acknowledgment of the entities’ integral role in the tourism value chain.“The idea was born out of the need to build capacity within the sector and provide financial support to enterprises that would better enable them to capitalise on business opportunities to better participate in the supply chain of the sector,” the Minister said.Mr. Bartlett advised that the first tranche of the loan facility has been fully disbursed, and encouraged other entrepreneurs not yet accessing the provision to take advantage of it to grow their businesses.EXIM Bank Managing Director, Lisa Bell, disclosed that the entity has, to date, processed more than 28 loan applications totalling $509 million under the programme. She said applications totalling $408 million have been approved, with disbursements totalling $311 million.The applications processed for approval fall in the categories of: attractions – $84.5 million; small accommodations – $105 million; gastronomy – $25 million; linkages – $32 million; shopping networks – $30 million; manufacturing – $47.5 million; services – $48.4 million; spa and wellness – $12. 5 million; and domestic tours and car rentals – $125 million.“We are very pleased about that, because we knew this programme could be revolutionary, not only because of its attractive terms and conditions but it really would put funding into the hands of those who needed it,” Mrs. Bell said.She further noted that the Bank has received an additional 25 qualified expressions of interest totalling approximately $470 million.In 2015, the World Bank noted that formal SMTEs contribute up to 60 per cent of total employment and up to 40 per of national income in emerging economies.In the Caribbean, these enterprises contribute more than 90 per cent of employment and 70 per cent of the gross domestic product.For more information on the loan facility, persons may call the EXIM Bank at 876-630-1400 to make an appointment; visit its offices at 85 Hope Road, Kingston 6; or website at www.eximbankja.com.

LiPad et les autres tablettes tactiles seront soumises à la redevance copie

first_imgL’iPad et les autres tablettes tactiles seront soumises à la redevance copie privéeFrance – Vendredi dernier, la commission sur la copie privée a décidé de soumettre les tablettes Internet à une taxe afin de préserver davantage le droit d’auteur.La tablette iPad et ses consœurs seront donc assujetties à la taxe sur la copie privée, après vote de la commission par 12 voix contre 9.Ce principe de taxation des tablettes a été voté, comme pour l’iPhone et l’iPod, car ces outils permettent à tous de reproduire des œuvres protégées par le droit d’auteur, et ce sans avoir à obtenir l’autorisation des différents ayants-droits. L’objectif de cette taxe est, ainsi, de reverser à ces derniers les redevances qui leur sont dues. Le 21 avril 2010 à 11:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more
