Advocaat took control of the Feyenoord in the midst of the club’s crisis, after the dismissal of Jaap Stam due to poor results, but under his tutelage the team has recovered and is, with 50 points, six from the lead, shared by Ajax and AZ Alkmaar. His coaching career began in 1987 and He has led teams such as PSV Eindhoven, Turkish Fenerbahce, Scottish Rangers, Rotterdam Sparta and Zenit Saint Petersburg., with which he won the UEFA Cup in 2008. Last season he coached Utrecht, which finished sixth in the Dutch Eredivisie. He has also been the coach of Russia, South Korea, Belgium, Serbia and in three stages of the Netherlands, the most recent between May and November 2017. The Feyenoord announced this Tuesday the renewal of its coach Dick Advocaat until the summer of 2021, after his arrival last October catapulted the team from twelfth to third place in the Eredivisie and classified him for the final of the Dutch Cup.“In these last weeks of madness I have continued to feel the passion for training and the desire I have to continue“The 72-year-old coach said in a statement from the Roterdam club.”I want to continue and the club too, so we keep going despite the uncertainties that exist at the moment“Advocaat added, referring to the paralysis of soccer due to the coronavirus.Feyenoord technical director Frank Arnesen congratulated himself on the coach’s renewal and said “it is great that he continues” at the club “one more season.” “We were having a great time under Dick’s direction. Unfortunately the measures against the coronavirus interrupted the season and it is not clear when we will be able to play again, but we must be prepared for when the time comes, “said Arnesen.

CJIA fees increase… blasts Govt for not knowing of increase beforehandOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said had the coalition Government gone along with the PPP/C’s initial designs for the US$150 million Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) Expansion Project, then there would be no need for the recently-announced increase in airport fees. The increase, he noted, could have an impact on the local tourism industry as well as traffic at the country’s main port of entry.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoLast week, the CJIA announced the increase in its Government-mandated airport security fees and the introduction of an airport passenger’s service charge. According to Caribbean Airlines, one of the international companies operating out of CJIA, this new development would see the fees/charges for a round trip raised to US$35, the equivalent of G$7315. Departing passengers will be required to pay US$17 while arriving passengers will pay US$15 payable in Guyana Dollars at the prevailing foreign exchange rate.The CJIA had reportedly advised all airlines that these increases are to support improvements at the airport.However, Jagdeo said, during his weekly press conference on Thursday, PPP’s original plans were intended to use the CJIA as a mini-hub to access other major regions across the world, which would result in increased traffic at the airport.“You can often do what you want by increasing traffic; that is why the size of the airport matters. By increasing traffic, you don’t need to adjust fees because you operate now on volume… (Secondly) we would have had more freight, because with the larger aircraft coming in, it would’ve been a big boost to the non-traditional industries –- perishables and stuff. So the cost of freight to North America and Europe would’ve gone down. (The original design) was based on more airlines coming, more airlines and more passengers coming,” he asserted.An artist’s impression of the original designs created under the PPP regimeThis, the Opposition Leader added, would offset the cost of supporting the newly-expanded airport, which was done using a US$138 million loan from the China EXIM (Export/Import) Bank.“(The original design) was mainly on volume growth than a vertical increase of the fees, especially by that magnitude. That’s a huge fee… First of all, we have to get what we paid for at the airport and we’re not getting the type of airport we paid for… I believe that volume growth could’ve offset any repayment of the loan. But if they had to do a minimal increase, they should have at least had the consultations with (stakeholders) and the Government should have known about it,” he contended.After taking office in 2015, the coalition Government redesigned the Airport Expansion Project reducing the air bridges from eight to four, among other things. Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson had explained that this was done, in part, to limit cost overruns.Following the announcement of the increased fee and the introduction of a new service charge, there has been mounting local public and international pressure on Guyana. In fact, Minister with responsibility for tourism, Dominic Gaskin, said that this arbitrary increase would affect the industry, adding that Cabinet was unaware of the increase before it was announced.To this end, Jagdeo blasted the coalition Administration over the way it is managing the country.“It could impact tourism, but my point is… how do you run a government and the Minister responsible for tourism doesn’t even know and doesn’t agree with the increase in the airport fee. He is a member of the Cabinet and he said other members of the Cabinet don’t know too. This is what we have for a government,” Jagdeo stated.Meanwhile in response to the hike, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) on Tuesday protested the refusal of the management of the CJIA to hold talks about the adverse impact of the increases on both the passengers and the airlines.The global air transport body says CJIA’s continued refusal to cooperate with IATA on both the proper calculation and implementation of such fees and charges has now led to a situation where airlines have been forced to manually collect the additional amounts from both arriving and departing passengers.“It is completely unacceptable that passengers are being inconvenienced in such a manner. This is a direct result of the airport management’s refusal to engage with IATA on a process, which is standard practice across the globe. As a consequence, our member airlines have unfortunately no choice other than to manually collect the additional fees and charges,” said Peter Cerda, IATA’s Regional Vice President for the Americas in a statement.IATA called for immediate dialogue with the CJIA management and Guyana’s Ministry of Public Infrastructure on the implementation process related to the increase in the Government-mandated Airport Security Fee and the introduction of a new Passenger Service Charge at Guyana’s main airport.IATA has worldwide standards in place enabling airlines to collect Government-imposed fees, service charges and taxes as part of an airline ticket. These are then transferred to the respective Governments. “This has provided a smoother travel experience for passengers, by eliminating the former practice whereby many governments manually collected some of these fees and taxes at airports,” IATA said.Furthermore, IATA says it wants clarity from the airport operator on how the fees and charges have been calculated, as again international standards set out by the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Document 9082 were not followed.“As such, we urgently call on the management of Cheddi Jagan International Airport to engage into the requested dialogue, so passengers are no longer inconvenienced, and member airlines can return to their normal business. This will ensure the sustainability of the aviation sector in Guyana and facilitate the growth of tourism and trade, thereby contributing to a vibrant and healthy economy,” Cerda said.
DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Construction on the 8th Street bridge in Dawson Creek will soon be getting underway.South Peace MLA Mike Bernier says drivers will need patience as they can expect to see traffic congestion as lane closures will take place on the bridge for the next two construction seasons.“It’s obviously going to be very congested and stressful, so we’re going to ask for people’s patience for the next two construction seasons because they’ll have to take the four-lanes down to two lanes.”- Advertisement -The decision to replace the culverts with an actual bridge was announced by former Premier Christy Clark following the massive flood of 2016, in which it was overwhelmed by the water of the Dawson Creek and suffered serious damage.According to Bernier, the Province has awarded the contracts to start the project, with hopes of starting the first phase in the next few weeks, with full-on construction in the Fall.The 8th Street bridge construction is a Ministry of Transportation project and will cost approximately $20 million.Advertisement
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card City officials expect to get only a fraction of the $12 million request. Over the last three years, city government has received a total of $3.7 million in federal appropriations. The council’s biggest single request is for $3.1 million to upgrade an emergency communication system that allows various agencies to talk to each other. The council also asked for $1.6 million to buy four compressed natural gas buses for its Beeline system. And it asked for $2.4 million for road-upgrading projects. The council also asked for $200,000 to install video monitoring equipment at the city’s major entrance and exit points. Officials acknowledged that a video monitoring project could spark privacy concerns. But Police Chief Randy Adams said the project would be aimed only at catching criminals entering or fleeing the city, not at collecting information on residents. “It is not designed in any way to spy on people,” he said. Among the projects the council declined to push was a $1.5 million effort to encourage students to read more. Millions of dollars in requests for road improvements were also put on the back burner. The money to fund the requests would come from a variety of federal sources, including the Crime Identification Technology Program, the Economic Development Initiative and the Fund for the Improvement of Education. The Department of Housing and Urban Development is typically a major funding source for cities seeking federal funds for projects.

GLENDALE – The City Council voted Tuesday to seek $12 million in federal money to expand Glendale’s emergency communication system, upgrade roads, buy four more buses and make other improvements. These projects are among 13 that the City Council decided should have the highest priority when Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, and other federal representatives ask for money on Capitol Hill this year. The council selected the 13 projects from a total of 30 on its wish list. Originally, city officials had planned to lobby for just four to six projects. “I hate to make it sound like we’re gambling, but (it’s like) going to a roulette table and playing more numbers,” said City Councilman Ara Najarian. “The more numbers you play, the more chances you have of a project being funded.”

Only minutes earlier, it took a fine stop from Gareth Wade to deny Walsh.The chances were coming think and fast for the hosts with Walsh miscuing when one on one with the goalkeeper, Chris Malseed fired narrowly wide with Wade unsighted but the ‘keeper was on hand to deny Garbhan Grant at the back post following a terrific pass from Jonathan Minnock.The second goal did arrive two minutes before the break when Walsh latched onto McNulty’s knock down and rifled his shot past Wade from the edge of the box.Lawrence Toland had a chance for Swilly on the stroke of half-time but his header went wide of the target.Rovers put further daylight between themselves and their opponents midway through the second half when McNulty headed home a John Doherty cross to make it 3-0 and that goal proved to be decisive as Rovers took their foot of the pedal late on.Firstly, Glenn Hamilton was penalised for a foul on Michael Doherty inside the penalty area and the former Rovers man made no mistake from the spot-kick.And deep into injury-time – with Rovers down to ten men following an injury to substitute Graham Cullen – Lawrence Toland brought it back to 3-2 with an opportunist strike from 20 yards.However, the Cathedral town men had little time to sweat on it as it proved to be the last note of the game.LETERKENNY ROVERS – James Gallagher, Conal McGonigle, Jonathan Minnock, Paul Rua McBride, Glenn Hamilton, Garbhan Grant, Dan O’Donnell, Jamie Doherty, Davitt Walsh, Chris Malseed, Paddy McNulty.

Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move ADVICE Watford, however, levelled things up through a late deflected effort from substitute Etienne Capoue, against his old club.The tie was settled on spot-kicks, which Spurs won 4-2.Speaking after the match, Watford manager Javi Gracia was left perplexed by Kabasele’s dismissal.“I think we played very well and I would like to respect the referee’s decision and to support them because I know it is not easy,” he said.“But it is hard to accept, first the penalty and then the red card – I don’t understand that decision. I don’t understand why the referee showed the red card. A statement from the Football Association read: “Christian Kabasele’s one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect after his wrongful dismissal claim was upheld.“The Watford player had been sent-off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday (26/09/18).”Kabasele will now be available to play in Saturday’s Premier League match at Arsenal.Alli converted the resulting penalty, before Spurs then quickly went 2-1 ahead through Erik Lamela.

Buncrana GAA has launched an exciting competition which offers the entire community an opportunity to propose a new name for the club.The competition was launched by Club Chairman Paul McGonigle and County Footballer Ryan Bradley with a visit to Scoil Naomh Iosaf, St. Oran’s, Scoil Náisiúnta Naomh Eighneach, Gaelscoil Bhun Crannacha, Scoil Noamh Mhura, and Scoil Íosagain. The competition requires entrants to compose a short essay (200-1,500 words) outlining their reasoning behind the proposed name. Entrants will be encouraged to take inspiration from local history, landmarks, people etc.The exciting competition is now open to all ages with prizes, kindly sponsored by Supervalu Buncrana, on offer for the lucky winners of each age category.Looking forward to the competition, Buncrana GAA Chairman and former County footballer Paul McGonigle said, “The Buncrana GAA Club represents the entire parochial area under the rules of the Association which means we cater for children from the Illies through Drumfries, Desertegney all through the Urban area up as far as Ludden and up to Tullydish, Sorne and everywhere in between.“We don’t have transfers as a player must represent the parish or club where they reside or their native parish if they have moved. It promotes lifelong involvement and bonds groups of players, friends, families and this is what sets the GAA apart from other team sports and is the reason why are the largest and fastest growing voluntary body in the country”. Speaking of the decision to look into renaming the club, the Chairman said, “Our responsibility as GAA officers is to ensure that we are giving every child in our parish the chance to partake in their national games of hurling and football irrespective of their age or creed and whether or not they have played before and our gates are and will always be open to new or returning members.“At our AGM we decided to research a name for the Club and bring these findings to the members who will ultimately decide on any change. To this end we want our parish and community to help by taking part in a unique competition to explore names for the Club and reasons for them.“This will generate an obvious interest in the GAA and the Buncrana Club and hopefully give a better understanding of what the organisation has to offer the youth of the parish. Our membership is expected to reach 600 this year and considering that the cost of membership for a child is €20 for the entire year, we are a pro-youth and pro-community voluntary organisation”.“Everyone involved is really excited about the competition which is open to all ages and you don’t have to be a member to get involved. We are very grateful to Kieran Doherty and Kavanagh’s Supervalu for sponsoring the competition and to Swilly Print for their support. A new name will give the entire parish greater ownership of and affiliation with their Club. The message we want to get out is that the GAA Club is owned by and includes the entire parish… now we want the people of the parish to give it a name that will last beyond generations”.It’s simple to enter. Entries should be minimum 200 words in length and no more than 1500 words and can be in English or Irish.All entries can be submitted by the 31stth March to: Buncranncha CLG, The Scarvey, Buncrana.GAA CLUB COMES UP WITH UNIQUE PLAN TO GIVE ITSELF A NEW NAME! was last modified: March 11th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Buncrana GAA ClubPaul McGonigle
