The former England national team footballer took his first coaching role as an assistant manager to Dean Smith in Championship’s Aston VillaJohn Terry is working on his first coaching role as an assistant manager in his former club Aston Villa.The English Championship club has recently hired Dean Smith, who will be Terry’s boss on this new challenge.But the former national team footballer wants to be a manager himself, although it will take more time for this to become true.Cowley explains why he changed his mind about Huddersfield Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“I have aspirations to be a manager one day but that is in four or five years – I’m nowhere near the finished article,” Terry said according to Team Talk.“Even my first day was a real eye-opener for me – as a player you don’t realize the depth and the amount of work that goes on.”“You turn up as a player and get on with the session. Yesterday we were going through it for an hour beforehand, and then another hour and a half afterward,” he added.“I am still building my ideas and my philosophy. I have learned over the years from many great managers – I am a sponge and I am keen to learn from him [Smith] and [assistant] Richard O’Kelly.”

Vadim Vasilyev, Vice President of AS Monaco, has urged the team to step up their game after the draw 2-2 against Dijon.Thierry Henry’s men could only manage a draw which means he is still waiting for a win in a competitive game as the manager of AS Monaco.“It is not enough. Especially what I saw in the first 60 minutes. We are in danger. It is not because the club is called AS Monaco that we will get out of this situation. It is by the awareness of the seriousness of this situation, individual but also collective, and a reaction is needed, by the work and by the state of mind.”Top 5 Ligue 1 players to watch throughout next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Ligue 1 next…“I am aware of the situation he told the club website.

This is not our place, we have no excuses. This club deserves a lot better and it is our duty to improve for the club. “

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 14, 2017 – Nassau – No more blame game when it comes to curtailing crime says the new Minister for National Security, Marvin Dames as he introduced the idea of civilians taking on jobs within the Police Force. A week ago today, the Minister Dames met with the Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade in a session designed to hear of the short term strategies of the Police. Minister Dames said he needed to hear from the lead Police officers, their plan for the abatement of crime. The meeting unveiled what the nation is already seeing evidence of, “a strategy-driven patrol initiative, where it will utilize existing and new technology to identify crime trends and shifting patterns on a sustained basis to direct its patrols.” However, if this initiative falls short of its targets, Dames said other ideas will move in and one coming and certain move is a manpower audit. “Our government has indicated that it will undertake a comprehensive manpower audit to determine the most effective establishment of the Royal Bahamas Police Force,” he said. The Minister admitted that it is unclear what the Police Force needs to be fully outfitted with the team required but was more confident in his House of Assembly budget contribution when he said, “If we are going to deliver professional and uninterrupted policing services throughout our nation, we must first determine 1) whether we have the adequate numbers of officers to provide the service to our customers; and 2) if yes, then where are they and are they being utilized to perform the tasks that they have been mandated to perform.” This consideration by the FNM Administration may mean more civilians working for the Force in areas where trained Police agents are not needed. #MagneticMediaNews#policemanpowerauditcoming Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #policemanpowerauditcoming Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has confirmed that the injury suffered by Gary Mackay-Steven is not severe after a clash of heads with Dedryck Boyata.The winger was stretched off during Aberdeen Scottish Cup final loss to Celtic on Sunday, but his manager revealed he has suffered no major damage.“I saw his family down at the dugout and there was an obvious concern there,” McInnes said, according to The National. “I was told he was unconscious and there was an urgency to get medics onto the park.”“Thankfully he’s sitting up in hospital, getting his tests down and it will be hopefully a straightforward concussion. Obviously, he misses the next game but I’m gutted for Gary because he was so looking forward to the opportunity to shine and has been in good form for us.”Lennon praises Celtic’s fan support Manuel R. Medina – May 5, 2019 According to the team manager, the way the supporters behave this season helped the team achieve an eighth consecutive title.Meanwhile, McInnes also admitted he is unhappy with match referee Andrew Dallas, following his decision to award Celtic a penalty kick.“The penalty decision didn’t do us any real harm, but it wasn’t a penalty in the first place,” he said.“It was clearly outside the box. If we didn’t have a goalie like Joe Lewis it would have been 2-0 and far more difficult.”“I also felt there was another yellow card challenge from Ryan Christie when Dom Ball breaks. The ref said he played the ball when he clearly didn’t. You need a lot of things to go for you in a final and it might sound churlish but a couple of decisions were really harsh on my team today.”“I love Ryan Christie, but it was another yellow card and the referee was in a brilliant position to see that and I don’t understand how he can say he played the ball.”
June 19, 2019 US District Court Judge: Del Mar gun shows can continue for now SAN DIEGO ( KUSI ) – A federal judge ruled that gun shows can continue at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, at least for now, as the court considers a lawsuit against a state agency’s decision to effectively suspend the shows, the California Rifle and Pistol Association announced Wednesday.U.S. District Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo issued a preliminary injunction on Monday, ruling that the state must allow gun shows at the fairgrounds to continue while the court rules on the legality of the suspension. As such, guns shows like the Crossroads of the West will be allowed to reserve dates and hold shows at the fairgrounds for the first time since last December.The state’s 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors, which oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds, voted last September to temporarily ban the sale of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds until state legislators could iron out concerns about on-site purchases.The vote effectively suspended gun shows at the fairgrounds after Jan. 1, prompting the CRPA to file suit against the state of California. The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation are also supporting the CRPA in its grievance.“We’re thankful Judge Bencivengo sees the constitutional problem with banning these safe, perfectly legal events and is allowing the show to go on while we continue to fight,” said Tiffany Cheuvront, attorney for the CRPA and B&L Productions, which runs the Crossroads of the West gun show. “We’re confident that as this case progresses, law-abiding Americans’ civil rights will not be unjustly violated and that we will prevail.”The San Diego County Gun Owners political action committee also praised the ruling and argued there is “nothing reasonable” about ending gun shows at the fairgrounds.“It is unconscionable that a very few people would use the force of government to discriminate against fellow San Diegans simply because they dislike them for exercising their rights,” said Michael Schwarz, executive director of San Diego County Gun Owners. “The injunction shows that the judge agrees there is a valid and important case to be made on behalf of California gun owners.”Gun control activist groups like Never Again California, a group of Del Mar residents and the cities of Del Mar, Encinitas and Solana Beach called for an end to gun shows at the fairgrounds last year in response to mass shootings and instances of gun violence around the country.State officials also came out against hosting gun shows at the fairgrounds and state-owned land in general, including Gov. Gavin Newsom and Assembly members Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, and Tasha Boerner-Horvath, D-Encinitas.In February, Gloria and Boerner-Horvath introduced Assembly Bill 893, which would ban the sale of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds wholesale beginning in 2021. The Assembly approved the bill by a 48-16 vote in April and it’s now being vetted in the state Senate. However, the court’s eventual ruling on CRPA’s case may put the bill’s future in jeopardy.While Boerner-Horvath’s office had no immediate comment on the ruling, Gloria insisted AB 893 will continue moving through the state legislature.“This injunction ignores the will of residents in the communities around the Del Mar Fairgrounds who have stated unequivocally that they do not want guns or ammunition sold on this public, state-owned property,” Gloria said. “We will continue to persist with our legislation to prohibit gun and ammunition sales on the fairgrounds and I hope the Del Mar Fair Board chooses to appeal this misguided decision.”The case is expected to continue into the fall, according to Cheuvront. If the Senate passes AB 893 and Newsom signs the bill into law prior to the case’s completion, the gun show organizers would likely file a second lawsuit to have the ban struck down.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart appeared to pick up another four-year term Tuesday, as preliminary results showed him with 51.9 percent of the vote.Republican Alan Svehaug received 47.9 percent of the vote.A total of 4,043 votes separates Stuart and Svehaug.The 39-year-old widely endorsed Stuart campaigned on his efforts to keep the county afloat during the recession and ongoing attempts to diversify the county’s economy in the wake of the homebuilding bust. The county’s general fund has been cut three times since January 2009 by a total of 22 percent.County staffers have been rewriting development code to make it, as Stuart often says in meetings, “better, faster, cheaper” to bring jobs to Clark County, which has the highest unemployment rate in the state. As an extra incentive, commissioners recently approved a 14-month-long fee waiver for certain business developments.Stuart, a Democrat, told voters he understands the complexities of the full-time job, which pays $98,220 a year. Svehaug, in contrast, campaigned against a proposal to put tolls on a replacement Interstate 5 bridge, an issue not under the direct control of county commissioners. Svehaug, 58, stood out as the lone Republican who couldn’t win the endorsement of the Building Industry Association of Clark County, despite his promise to be more accommodating to developers. According to reports filed with the Public Disclosure Commission, Stuart raised $79,739 to Svehaug’s $5,763.Svehaug, founder of the Learning Excellence Corp., which teaches speed-reading, did receive thousands of dollars worth of advertising from David Madore of Notolls.com.
Come August, a blueberry pie — or tomato or macramé wall hanging — worthy of a blue ribbon will still receive a blue ribbon at the Clark County Fair, as well as a very modest cash prize.Despite the threat of losing state money, which traditionally has been used for prize premiums and ribbons, Clark County Fair Manager John Morrison said last week he will redo his budget if necessary to ensure that winning exhibits are adorned and winning exhibitors are paid.As the top-ranked fair in Washington, a status the county has enjoyed for seven straight years, the county was on track to receive approximately $98,000 from the state, Morrison said.That’s out of $2 million the state Department of Agriculture distributes to approximately 70 county, community and youth fairs, said Val Watson, president of the Washington State Fairs Association.Watson, in a Jan. 17 press release, said that Gov. Chris Gregoire’s 2011-13 budget reduces the fair fund from $2 million a year to $500,000.Watson said representatives of 50 fairs responded to a survey; 56 percent said their fairs would not survive if the fair fund was eliminated. Nearly all (92 percent) of the respondents said premiums for exhibitors would be “severely reduced or eliminated.”Morrison, who with other fair representatives will meet with lawmakers on Thursday, isn’t overly concerned about losing the money. He said he’ll understand if the remaining funds are distributed to smaller fairs that rely on the state money.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers added no jobs in August — an alarming setback for the economy that renewed fears of another recession and raised pressure on Washington to end the hiring standstill.Worries flared Friday after the release of the worst jobs report since September 2010. Total payrolls were unchanged, the first time since 1945 that the government reported a net job change of zero. The unemployment rate stayed at 9.1 percent.The dismal news two day before Labor Day sent stocks plunging. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 253 points, or more than 2 percent.Analysts say the economy cannot continue to expand unless hiring picks up. In the first six months of 2011, growth was measured at an annual rate of 0.7 percent.Companies are mostly keeping their payrolls intact. They’re not laying off many workers. But they’re not hiring, either. Without more jobs to fuel consumer spending, economists say another recession would be inevitable. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of economic growth.Like a wobbling bicycle, “you either reaccelerate or you fall over, said James O’Sullivan, chief economist at MF Global. “Something has to give.”
NEWTOWN, Conn. — At the very start of their lives, the schoolchildren are remembered for their love of horses, or for the games they couldn’t get enough of, or for always saying grace at dinner. The adult victims found their life’s work in sheltering little ones, teaching them, caring for them, treating them as their own. The gunfire Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School left a toll both unbearable and incalculable: 20 students and six adults at the school, the gunman’s mother at home, and the gunman himself.A glimpse of some of those who died:CHARLOTTE BACON, 6They were supposed to be for the holidays, but finally on Friday, after hearing much begging, Charlotte Bacon’s mother relented and let her wear the new pink dress and boots to school.It was the last outfit the outgoing redhead would ever pick out. Charlotte’s older brother, Guy, was also in the school but was not shot.Her parents, JoAnn and Joel, had lived in Newtown for four or five years, JoAnn’s brother John Hagen, of Nisswa, Minn., told Newsday.“She was going to go some places in this world,” Hagen told the newspaper. “This little girl could light up the room for anyone.”
Click to enlarge What is a home rule charter?To understand what a home rule charter does, you must first understand the current form of government.The state constitution, ratified in 1889, spells out how county governments operate, unless voters opt for a home rule charter. The constitution calls for an elected three-member board of commissioners, along with other elected offices such as auditor, treasurer, assessor, clerk, sheriff and prosecuting attorney.In 1948, the constitution was amended to allow counties to adopt home rule charters. These charters allow local jurisdictions, through an elected board of freeholders, to revamp the structure of county government. There are six charter counties in Washington, with King County being the first to adopt a charter in 1969. Some of the charter counties have enacted large-scale overhauls — King County’s board, for example, has nine members — while changes to other counties are small.What the charter would do• Add two council members. One of the commissioners would be the council chairman.• Hire a county manager, who would oversee department heads. The manager would lead many of the day-to-day operations of the county as part of the charter’s call for separating legislative and executive powers.• Reduce the council members’ pay nearly in half. The four council members would receive an annual salary of $53,000 a year; the council chair would receive $64,000.• With the exception of the council chair, the council members would be elected by district in the general election. The council chair would be elected at large.

EXCLUSIVE: Nick Burns (pictured), chairman of the advisory board at Neyber, will discuss the cause and effect impacts of financial wellbeing issues on employees’ physical and mental health at Employee Benefits Live 2017.The session, titled ‘How are employees benefitting from financial wellbeing strategies?’, will form part of the financial wellbeing stream on Wednesday 11 October.In his session, Burns will use both a real-life case study as well as relevant statistics to highlight how employees’ financial wellbeing issues can have a cause and effect reaction on employees’ physical and mental health and wellbeing. For example, financial troubles could impact on an employee’s diet or sleep, as well as cause stress.Burns will emphasise that while many employers will have created strategies to help support staff with both their physical and mental wellbeing, these measures could be redundant if financial wellbeing is not also addressed.In the session, Burns will also chair a panel discussion to explore why the employers featured in the panel decided to adopt a wellbeing strategy that includes financial wellbeing. The panelists will speak about how they implemented their wellbeing strategies at their respective organisations, as well as detail the impacts the strategy is therefore having on employees.The panelists include Naomi Austen, head of reward at Axis, James Devine, executive director of HR and organisation development at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, and Nick Weinel, reward director at DHL and winner of the Best financial wellbeing strategy category at 2017’s Employee Benefits Awards. Heidi Allen, head of research at Neyber, will also feature on the panel.Burns said: “A lot of people will probably have a physical wellbeing strategy, they’ll probably have a mental wellbeing strategy, but the point I’m looking to try and make at the session is that [while employers] may have those sorted out, it’s cause and effect, and a lot of the [causes] of physical and mental wellbeing problems are financial wellbeing issues.“It’s time, I think, that people looked much more deeply at financial wellbeing and the effect that financial wellbeing is having on [physical and mental wellbeing].”Employee Benefits Live 2017 will take place on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October at Olympia National, London.For more information or to book your place.
(WSVN) – The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump plans to “decertify” the Iran nuclear deal, as early as next week.If this goes through, Congress would have 60 days to consider whether or not to reimpose sanctions against Iran.Meanwhile, while at an unrelated meeting with military leaders, Thursday, the topic of Iran came up.“We must not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons,” said Trump. “The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East.”The Obama-era pact called for the United States to lift sanctions in Iran in exchange for Iran curbing it’s nuclear program.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

DEERFIELD BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A Tri-Rail train came off the CSX railroad tracks in Deerfield Beach at the start of rush hour.7Skyforce HD hovered above the scene in the area of Southwest 10th Street and 12th Avenue, about a quarter mile west of Interstate 95, Tuesday afternoon.According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, they received a call about the derailment at around 3:15 p.m.Officials said the southbound train was heading to the Miami International Airport when its leading locomotive derailed from the tracks.One of the train’s wheels apparently came off at a switching area underneath an overpass. Officials said the train was moving very slowly at the time it derailed.There were about 200 passengers on board the three-car train. No one was hurt.The most pressing issue for crews was making a makeshift staircase to allow passengers to de-board. The train came to rest at an angle that creates a steep incline for passengers. At around 4:30 p.m., Tri-Rail officials began bringing shuttle buses to take passengers to their destination.Officials said all passengers were removed from the train by 5 p.m. They were taken to the nearest Tri-Rail station in Pompano Beach.Another track was being used to move other trains past the disabled Tri-Rail train, but officials cautioned customers to expect some delays in this area.It remains unknown what caused the train to come off the track.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.
