He wants to get better. You end up sometimes dragging him off the training ground because he wants to get better. It’s a massive plus in his favour,” he said.”Jack’s a football person. He will train all day and go and find a room somewhere and fall asleep. Then he’ll wake up and go and do a gym session, that’s how he is.”He’s that sort of character – I’m surprised his girlfriend is still with him! He’ll go back home and he’ll be watching football as well. He’s a football nut.”Jack and John McGinn were probably our most influential players last season and to expect them to be as influential in the Premier League is asking a little bit too much straightaway. But they are getting better and better, that’s for sure.”What we want Jack to do is to be running at opposition players and hurting them like he did against Crystal Palace.” last_img read more

Suncor wont approve more oil production expansions until pipeline progress CEO

first_imgWilliams says he’ll wait to see “physical progress on the ground” before he commits to them.The Federal Court of Appeal last week reversed a cabinet decision to allow Trans Mountain construction to go ahead.A U.S. federal judge earlier ordered the U.S. State Department to conduct a more thorough review of the Keystone XL oil pipeline’s proposed pathway after Nebraska state regulators changed the route.Williams says that as a Canadian he found the delays “troubling” but not relevant to the company in the next three to five years.Suncor is officially opening its Fort Hills oilsands mine on Monday as it works to add 10 percent to its production output this year and again in 2019.It has been ramping up production and beat its guidance by delivering Suncor’s share at 71,000 barrels per day, at lower than forecast cash operating costs. Suncor owns a 43.11 percent interest in the open-pit and shovel mine, Total has 24.58 percent and Teck 21.31 percent.

Imran Khan welcomes PM Modis greetings on Pakistan National Day

first_imgIslamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has welcomed his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi’s greetings on the eve of its National Day, saying time has come to begin a “comprehensive dialogue” between the two countries to address and resolve all issues, including the “central issue” of Kashmir. According to official sources in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi sent a letter to Khan, greeting people of Pakistan on the eve of its National Day and highlighting the importance of a terror-free South Asia. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Modi, in his message, said it was time for the people of the sub-continent to work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive and prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence, they said. Khan, in a tweet, welcomed Modi’s message and said the time has come to begin a comprehensive dialogue between the two countries to address and resolve all issues, including Kashmir. “I welcome PM Modi’s message to our people. As we celebrate Pakistan Day I believe it is time to begin a comprehensive dialogue with India to address & resolve all issues, esp the central issue of Kashmir, & forge a new relationship based on peace & prosperity for all our people,” Khan tweeted on Friday. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday India has made it clear to Pakistan that cross-border terror attacks and talks cannot go hand in hand. India last year called off a planned meeting of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi on the sidelines of the annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York after blaming Pakistan-based entities for killing of three special police officers in Kashmir. Earlier, Khan also tweeted Modi’s message. “Received msg from PM Modi: ‘I extend my greetings & best wishes to the people of Pakistan on the National Day of Pakistan. It is time that ppl of Sub-continent work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive & prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence’,” Khan said. Modi’s message to Khan came in the midst of severe strain in ties between the two nuclear-armed neighbours following the Pulwama attack and the subsequent air strikes by India on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camp in Pakistan’s Balakot. Significantly, India Friday boycotted a reception at the Pakistan High Commission here to mark Pakistan’s National Day, objecting to invites extended to several separatist leaders from Jammu and Kashmir for the event. The official sources in New Delhi said the prime minister sends a customary message on National Days to other heads of state and government and added that his message to Khan highlighted the importance of a terror-free South Asia. Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based terror group JeM killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district in February 14. India launched a counter-terror operation in Balakot. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured its pilot, who was handed over to India on March 1. Every year on March 23, Pakistan celebrates its National Day commemorating the Lahore Resolution passed on March 23, 1940 and the adoption of the first constitution of Pakistan on March 23, 1956.last_img read more

Guardiola stunned by Mendys Instagram post F hes a lucky guy

first_imgPep Guardiola was left speechless after learning that Benjamin Mendy tagged himself at Hong Kong International Airport on his Instagram story on Friday.Despite returning to action for Manchester City against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup last month, Mendy remains sidelined while recuperating from knee surgery in November.As such, the French full-back will not feature against Chelsea on Sunday for City and was given permission by Guardiola to travel to Barcelona and Paris to help with him regain full fitness.The City boss also confirmed that captain Vincent Kompany will sit out of the Chelsea game as well due to muscle problems.“Mendy is injured and it’s not easy. Meniscus. It is not easy. He needs to re-adapt,” said Guardiola on the club website.“You can’t return and train for two days and you are fit. You have to be careful.”On Friday morning, however, Mendy posted a video of himself on Instagram with the location tag of Hong Kong International Airport.When asked about this one, Guardiola was taken completely aback as he thought Mendy was still at Barcelona.He said: “Wow, I didn’t know. F***, he’s a lucky guy. He said he was going to Paris but Hong Kong is far away, I need to download an Instagram account.“Yesterday he was in Barcelona. It will definitely not be OK if he is in Hong Kong.”Meanwhile, Guardiola will be hoping to see his City side claim a third consecutive win this Sunday against Chelsea as they bid to hold on to their lead at the top of the Premier League.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The Citizens’ 2-0 win at Everton on Wednesday saw them return to top spot in the standings for the first time since December.However, Guardiola is refusing to underestimate Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri who he feels has made progress since their first meeting back in August in the Community Shield despite what recent results may suggest.“People believed managers arrive at good clubs and immediately create something,” said Guardiola.“My feeling when I saw Chelsea at Community Shield was they were already there.“They have been exceptional. Final of Carabao Cup, in Europa League, and Premier League they are there.“They are nine behind with one less game and in the FA Cup they are there as well.“I see them play and I recognise exactly what they want to do.”This is gold!

Trumps poisonous rhetoric making world darker Amnesty

first_imgUS President Donald TrumpAmnesty International said on Wednesday US president Donald Trump’s “poisonous” rhetoric on his way to winning the White House led a global trend towards increasingly divisive politics in 2016 that had made the world a “darker” place.In its annual report covering 159 countries, the human rights group said principles of human dignity and equality had come under assault from politicians seeking election and it zeroed in on Trump, who took office on 20 January.”Donald Trump’s poisonous campaign rhetoric exemplifies a global trend towards angrier and more divisive politics,” Amnesty said in a statement issued in Paris. The world, it said, had become a “darker … unstable place”, with a rise in hate speech targeting refugees across Europe and the United States.”The early indications from (…) Trump suggest a foreign policy that will significantly undermine multilateral cooperation and usher in a new era of greater instability and mutual suspicion,” Amnesty added.Trump, a Republican former reality TV star and property magnate, has said he is “the least racist person” and “least anti-Semitic person you’ve ever seen” and that one of his top priorities is to protect the United States from terrorism.His administration has been marked by controversies in the early going, fierce attacks on the news media and legal battles over his executive order to ban people temporarily from seven Muslim-majority countries as alleged security risks.US vice president Mike Pence visited Europe this week Pence and pledged “steadfast and enduring commitment” to ties between the United States and the European Union, a message at variance with Trump’s far-right chief strategist.US allies in Europe have been seeking clarity on the Trump administration’s foreign policy strategy and its stance toward Russia.”The gap between imperative and action, and between rhetoric and reality, was stark and at times staggering,” Amnesty said.”Nowhere was this better illustrated than in the failure of states attending September’s 2016 United Nations summit for refugees and migrants to agree any adequate response to the global refugee crisis.”According to Amnesty calculations, some 75,000 refugees found themselves trapped between Jordan and Syria as the civil war in Syria entered its seventh year.Amnesty said populist movements and messages had also become more common in Europe, notably in Poland and Hungary.”The result was a pervasive weakening of the rule of law and an erosion in the protection of human rights, particularly for refugees and terrorism suspects, but ultimately for everyone.”last_img read more

Hence the need for this installation.”The Cheekka holds cutting tea glasses with tea lights in it. The size of the installation can be increased or decreased according to the space allotted.
