first_imgThe All Whites were thrown out of the competition in Papua New Guinea’s capital after a protest made by semi-final opponents Vanuatu over the eligibility of South African-born Deklan Wynne was upheld at a disciplinary hearing on July 12.Vanuatu, who were handed a 3-0 walkover win despite succumbing to a 2-0 defeat in their last-four encounter, went on to play Fiji in the final later that same day, losing 4-3 on penalties at the Sir Hubert Murray Stadium.The OFC Disciplinary Committee ruled that Wynne was ineligible to compete due to him acquiring a new nationality under Article 7 of the Regulations Governing the Application of the FIFA Statutes.NZF President Deryck Shaw said the grounds for appeal include both the process undertaken by the OFC, and the rules applied in reaching its decision.He also stated that despite recent media reports, the FIFA Ethics Committee have confirmed they are not investigating NZF.Andy Martin, chief executive of the NZF, said the national body is continuing its detailed review of the internal processes and eligibility information for all players.This includes members of its men’s under 17 squad, which the New Zealand Herald reported last week is the subject of a complaint received by the OFC last week.It is claimed that New Zealand used ineligible players to win the Under 17 World Cup qualifying tournament in Samoa and American Samoa earlier this year.  Success earned them the one available Oceanian berth for the 2015 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in Chile from October 17 to November 8. “We are working at pace to complete a review of our internal processes and eligibility information on players,” said Martin.”We are taking a conservative view, and have obtained information from FIFA about the process to apply for exemptions for the small number of players that are potentially affected and we are working with the players concerned to gather the necessary information.”We intend to have this review and work programme complete in the next two weeks and our focus remains on giving our full support to our players, their families and our coaching and management teams during what has been a distressing time for them.”last_img read more

first_img…company “dragging feet” on proposals − NAACIEThe Guyana Power and Light (GPL) has once again found itself in some hot water as workers of its Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Department on Monday downed tools in protest of being refused an eight per cent salary increase.The action by the employees, said to be critical to the operations of the power company, was to have occurred at GPL branches across the country.Workers of the power company stand in protest for higher salariesThe almost 40 employees gathered in front of the company’s Georgetown office, and though they carried no placards, they made the point that the two per cent increase being proposed by GPL will in no way work for them, especially at this time of the year.“We come out here because we are saying no to that two per cent,” one protestor said. “The union and management meet, and they ain’t come to no sort of agreement. They offer us two per cent and that can’t work, especially around this time,” he told Guyana Times.“Every year is the same thing, every year is one thing with them,” another worker lamented.President of the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE) Kenneth Joseph, present during the protest, explained that the power company and the union have found themselves in a deadlock as the negotiations have not yet been completed.“Since we have sent our proposals in April, we have not been able to complete negotiations with GPL. Last year we had three meetings. We are still at nothing.” According to Joseph, the company is now casting blame at the feet of the union, saying that the union “is the reason for the non-agreement.”He pointed out that the union would not be doing its work effectively by representing the interest of workers, if it were to accept the proposals of the company.“These include the across-the-board payment, the changes in working hours that were signed long ago. We don’t agree with the proposals they have made. They are just pulling this thing on…They are not ready yet to call us to discuss some new thing. I think it was disgusting throughout,” the union head told this newspaper.He said the union has given the company every chance to come up with a situation that would not involve a protest or strike action. “We told them that the people will someday get fed up and that is what has happened today. The union is in full support of this protest. I’m sorry that we have to be on the road. It took them 11 and half months for them to be on the road. But you can imagine, they are frustrated, the union is frustrated. I was told that there are people on the road in Onverwagt and New Amsterdam. We were hoping that it did not get this far. I already told the Ministry of Labour that my members are on the road.”During the last meeting the two units had last Tuesday, Joseph said the company presented two per cent across-the-board, three per cent end scale movement and 0-10 per cent for performance.“We have two parts that we can take, but the across-the-board 2 per cent we cannot; we cannot agree with that”, Joseph maintained.

first_imgAnfield’s Centenary Stand is to be renamed after Kenny Dalglish in recognition of one of Liverpool’s greatest players, the Premier League club has revealed.The 66-year-old has been associated with the Reds since 1977, when he moved to Merseyside from Celtic.During his time as a player, and two separate occasions as manager, he won eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups, five League Cups and one UEFA Super Cup.Off the field he played a significant role in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster which claimed the lives of 96 fans and he and his family continue to provide support to the victims’ relatives.As a tribute in the club’s 125th anniversary year, Liverpool’s owners have decided to bestow the naming honour on Dalglish, who with his wife set up the Marina Dalglish Appeal back in 2005 – a charity which aims to help those who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families on Merseyside.Anfield already has lasting tributes to two of its great managers in the form of the (Bill) Shankly Gates and (Bob) Paisley Gates but this is the first time a stand in the ground has been named after any individual.“It is testament to Liverpool’s history and status that we are not lacking in truly great individuals, whose names could easily grace a stand at Anfield,” said principal owner John W Henry.“But in Kenny Dalglish we have a person who carries such immense significance to the fabric of this club, so it feels somewhat incumbent on us to recognise this in a manner that is befitting to the man.“He is unique, not just to Liverpool, but to the game in England as a whole, having achieved greatness as a player and then enjoyed such success as a manager. His record and trophies won on both fronts speak for themselves.“However, Kenny’s contribution to Liverpool goes beyond goals scored, points amassed and silverware placed in the cabinet. His values are Liverpool’s values – he represents what is best about this football club.“The leadership and solace he gave to individuals, the club and city as it tried to come to terms with the trauma and tragedy of Hillsborough transcended sporting achievement.“His name is synonymous with our club, with our home and the city of Liverpool. Now it will be as visible as it is palpable.”The official renaming ceremony will take place at a later date this year.Liverpool chairman Tom Werner said: “We recognise this won’t sit comfortably with Kenny’s default position of humility and self-deprecation but as we approach the club’s 125th anniversary year now is the right time in the club’s illustrious history to leave this legacy.“For decades he has served the club and the city with the steadfast attitude that the collective always comes ahead of the individual.“This announcement isn’t about singling him out – it’s about recognising that his name embodies values we all strive to honour and his name represents all that we are proud of when identifying ourselves as Liverpool Football Club.” 1 Dalglish won eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups, five League Cups and one UEFA Super Cup as a player and manager at Liverpool last_img read more

first_imgThis brand cost €24,000 with much more being spent rolling it out to new signsHEALTH bosses have splashed out an astonishing HALF A MILLION EURO on a public relations rebranding of Letterkenny Hospital and the group.The West/North West Hospital Group is being renamed ‘Saolta’.Galway Deputy Noel Grealish has hit out at the HSE for paying consultants €24,000 – just for the new brand. He has tabled a question with the Health Minister in the Dail requesting details of the decision making process and full costings.“I estimate the wider rollout of the new identity from Donegal to Galway could cost in the region of €500,000,” he said.Brand identity consultants BFK were selected to rename the group following a tendering process which got underway in January.The group manages UHG, Merlin Park Hospital, Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe, Roscommon County Hospital, Mayo Hospital, Sligo Hospital and Letterkenny Hospital. “It’s a ludicrous plan and the regional health forum was never even consulted,” he said. REVEALED: HOW HSE ARE SPENDING €500,000 ON RE-BRANDING HOSPITAL was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalletterkenny hospitalrebrandSaoltalast_img read more

first_imgSA Soccer Dollies: A piece of Africa fortourists to take home.(Image: www.elolo.com)MEDIA CONTACTS• Laurie BroombergElolo Dollies+27 21 465 1586+27 82 898 9206laurie@elolo.com RELATED ARTICLES• The master of the makarapa• Football – South Africa style• Viva the vuvuzela orchestra• Goodwill Balls get 2010 rollingNosimilo RamelaWith the 2010 Fifa World Cup only three weeks away, Cape Town-based company Elolo is joining the excitement by selling weird and wonderful little dolls for fans to take home as mementos after the tournament – all made by members of an impoverished community.Affectionately called SA Soccer Dollies, the figurines are made from colourful wool, wire, beads and bits of plastic, and have mini South African flags and footballs attached to them.They come in the form of brooches, magnets and key rings, and are about 10cm long. Each doll sells for R30 (US$3.81).The pieces are made for Elolo by nine women and two men from the Mfuleni township community outside Cape Town, where HIV/Aids and unemployment is rife.“Everybody works from their own homes, which allows them to look after their children, work their own hours and save on transport costs – all while making a living and supporting their families,” said company owner Laurie Broomberg.Broomberg was born and raised in Zimbabwe, but now lives in Cape Town. She opened her company in 2007 and initially worked alone with beads, but her activities soon turned into a jewellery enterprise. “I decided to look for people to work with and concentrated on growing the business,” she said.Inspired by the country hosting Africa’s first football World Cup, Broomberg started designing the dolls in 2009. “I just thought I’m going to make as many dollies as possible. They are a memento of this great event,” she said.Each doll has a name and comes with a warm message, such as: “My Name is Thembisa and I will bring you love, laughter, happiness and prosperity!”Broomberg began her marketing drive from home in February by sending out emails to different people and companies she thought would be interested in the dolls. The response has been “phenomenal”, she said.“We have been receiving many orders from people wanting the dollies, mainly corporate companies that want them for clients and employee gifts. People organising events, small retailers and promotional gift companies are also putting in orders.”Requests come from all over the country, every day. “We have so many orders, we are working around the clock to ensure we don’t run out of stock.”Changing livesBroomberg said the success of the business has transformed the lives of the men and women on her team.“The work we do has really changed these men and women’s lives. My manager once lived in a small room, but was able to afford a three-bedroom house after working on the dollies. The other people on the team have managed to get their homes tiled and send their kids to school,” said Broomberg.This has been a great reward for the Cape Town entrepreneur, who started the business in the hopes of changing people’s lives and challenging the stigma of HIV/Aids.“I chose to work with people affected by HIV/Aids because they are often discriminated against,” she said.Broomberg plans to start sending out stock to guest houses and hotels expecting World Cup tourists.“I think tourists will want to buy the dollies. They are made locally and help to support disadvantaged men and women. They are a piece of Africa – a piece of history for people to take home after the World Cup.”last_img read more

first_imgSevilla’s Joris Gnagnon has taken to social media to publicly apologise to Liverpool and Yasser Larouci after his horror tackle sent the teenager off on a stretcher.The La Liga side triumphed over the Anfield outfit on a steamy evening in Boston, with an Alejandro Pozo goal at the end of the 90 minutes proving the difference in a 2-1 friendly.But main talking point from the contest will not be the late goal, but instead a second-half red card challenge from Gnagnon on Larouci. Article continues below Editors’ Picks 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 Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? The teen was dribbling through the midfield when Gnagnon came up and kicked Larouci’s knee, sending him tumbling to the turf.A red card was produced immediately, while Larouci remained on the ground for several minutes while he was attended to by medical staff.Eventually, Larouci was taken off the field on a stretcher and was spotted later on crutches with a knee brace. And after the match, Gnagnon posted an apology in French on his twitter account, admitting it was an “odious act” and sending his prayers to Larouci.“I would like to publicly apologise towards the Liverpool club the family of the player and its supporters,” Gnagnon wrote. “This one odious act on my part whatever the reason is not to be seen on a football field. All my prayers are direct towards the player and that family.”pic.twitter.com/EIjPB9IuGq— Joris Gnagnon (@Gnagnon_39) July 22, 2019Jurgen Klopp was not pleased after the match, but chose to focus on the positive news he had received over Larouci’s injury. “[It’s] much too early in the season to create headlines with saying the things I think about the situation,” Klopp told reporters. “Let me say how the situation is with Yasser; it looks like he was lucky but, of course, how it always is with these things we have to wait a little bit. He couldn’t keep on playing, so that’s the first not-so-good sign but in the dressing room it was OK, similar how it looks to Harry [Wilson].“He hit him full throttle and, in that moment, [if it was] a little bit different position where he hit him then it’s done. He rolls… he is a sports boy so that was OK, nothing happened there.“I don’t know 100 per cent.
