first_imgMan Utd academy chief Parry hints at loan plans for young trioby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United plan to let several players depart on loan in January.Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Brandon Williams and James Garner have all featured under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in league and cup competitions.Their progress could stall with the arrival of new recruits and academy player performance manager Les Parry admits more outgoings are likely in January.”We’ll plan it out and we’ve identified four or five who might be going out in January. Obviously, our first-team manager has a say,” he said.“Angel, Tahith, and James could have gone out on loan but he wanted to keep them here and have a look at them on tour. So a decision will be made, no doubt, for January as well. Hopefully, all three will be in the first team and not going anywhere.“They’ve been presented with an opportunity and they’ve taken the opportunity so now a couple of them are regulars on the team sheet each week. We’ve had opportunities that have cropped up from nowhere. That’s football.“Hopefully, some of the lads out on loan now will also catch the eye as some have gone out with a perception of their ability and where they’ll end up but hopefully they’ll come back and people will say maybe we’ve got a little diamond.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgterry mclaurin makes catch around the defender in spring game.ohio state terry mclaurin spring gameOhio State’s young wide receivers are having a day during the program’s spring game. First, it was Noah Brown corralling a pass one-handed over the middle. Now, Terry McLaurin has his own catch to add to the highlight reel.Right before halftime, McLaurin went up over the top of Buckeye cornerback Damon Webb and hauled in a touchdown from quarterback Stephen Collier. It was a pretty play on both ends. The record-breaking crowd at The Horseshoe today are certainly being treated to some entertaining action.last_img

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s largest Pride parade is one step closer to securing municipal funding that has been threatened by a decision to ban uniformed police officers from the annual event.Pride Toronto has sparked controversy ever since a decision early this year to ban police floats from the colourful summer parade.On Monday, a committee at Toronto City Hall recommended upholding a $260,000 annual grant to the event after a petition from Olivia Nuamah, the executive director of Pride Toronto. A final ruling on the fate of the grant will come in a few weeks at the city’s monthly council meeting.Toronto Mayor John Tory has expressed his support for the funding, saying both Pride Toronto and Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders have told him cutting the grant would not help resolve the controversy around the parade.Earlier this year, a Toronto city councillor called for the grant to be revoked over Pride Toronto’s decision to ban police floats, saying the event had become exclusionary.The union representing Toronto police officers quickly echoed that call, saying it would be unacceptable for the city to sponsor an event that shuts out certain municipal employees.In a statement released Sunday evening, Pride Toronto reiterated that police officers were welcome at the parade so long as they appeared as civilians rather than in an official capacity.The organization said officers could participate in the march if they left their uniforms, weapons and cruisers behind.Nuamah said both sides of the issue have the same goal.“We are going to be trying incredibly hard to dampen down the vitriolic nature of this conversation, to be honest with you, to make it more about the cohesion which we all seek,” Nuamah said.Having the mayor’s public support is “huge,” the organizer said.In January, Pride Toronto decided to adopt a list of demands issued by the Toronto chapter of Black Lives Matter, which included a ban on police floats.The issue first made headlines during last year’s parade, when members of the anti-racism group staged a sit-in that halted the march until Pride organizers signed a list of demands.Black Lives Matter has argued that allowing uniformed officers at the parade could discourage marginalized communities from attending.Saunders said earlier this year that in light of the ongoing controversy, the force would steer clear of the event, aside from overseeing security.If the parade’s grant is revoked, the city would still provide policing, transportation and other services for the Pride parade,Police participation in Pride events has stirred controversy across Canada recently, with several forces — such as those in Vancouver and Halifax — facing restrictions or bans for local parades.Last week, however, the Pride committee in St. John’s, N.L., reversed course and invited uniformed police officers to march in the city’s parade.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock index closed higher in broad-based gains Friday, while the loonie made gains after a stronger-than-expected reading of inflation.Markets reacted positively for a second day after the U.S. and China said they would hold trade talks in late August for the first time since early June.The potential easing of trade tensions has been well received by markets after tariff disputes between the U.S. and Turkey added to geopolitical stresses in recent days, said Philip Petursson, chief investment strategist at Manulife Investments.“If we’re getting a little more pleasant talk or pleasant surprises in terms of cooler heads coming to the table to discuss the trade positions a little more rationally, I think that’s certainly a positive thing and the markets should take it as such.”The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 98.06 points at 16,323.71 as materials stocks rebounded from heavy losses earlier this week. Friday’s gains left the index down 0.02 per cent for the week. The intraday high hit 16,336.89 and volume came in at 173.99 million shares traded.Major sectors like energy and financials also gained, while information technology was one of the few indexes in the red with a 0.76 per cent drop.The cannabis-heavy S&P/TSX capped health-care index had the biggest gains at 3.45 per cent as Canopy Growth jumped 8.6 per cent on a continued climb following Constellation Brand’s $5-billion investment in the company this week.Friday’s gains on the market were as much about buying on the dip as any new developments, said Petursson.“I think what we are seeing perhaps is a little bit of buying, taking advantage of a couple of down days and a few bargains to be had out there.”In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average closed up 110.59 points at 25,669.32. The S&P 500 index was down 9.44 points at 2,850.13 and the Nasdaq composite ended down 9.81 points at 7,816.33.The Canadian dollar averaged 76.45 cents US, up 0.42 of a US cent. The loonie traded up after Statistics Canada reported the annual inflation rate hit 3.0 per cent in July, its highest level since September 2011.However, investors shouldn’t put too much stock in the July number because it was caused in part by the way Statistics Canada keeps track of the air transportation index, said Petursson.“While the number itself looks quite strong and compelling for the for the Canadian economy, and for the Bank of Canada to move, it really was a change in methodology and should be taken with a big grain of salt.”The October crude contract closed up 33 cents at US$65.21 per barrel and the September natural gas contract ended up four cents at US$2.95 per mmBTU.The December gold contract closed up 20 cents at US$1,184.20 an ounce and the September copper contract was up a penny at US$2.63 a pound.last_img read more

first_imgThe following is the list of Sponsors that helped detail the car from new paint, wheels, window tinting and a custom stereo system; FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A new concept is being unveiled for North Peace Secondary School (NPSS) graduates this year with an opportunity to win a car on Prom night.Tammy Mackenzie, NPSS Prom Organizer shares they wanted to do something different and memorable for the graduates as a way to encourage the student body to stay the entirety of the evening to enjoy the evening of Prom. Mackenzie said that graduates will typically leave Prom night after the formal dinner and with all the time and money that goes into their looks and outfits, she felt with a big prize draw at the end of the evening that students would have to be present to win, would be what was needed to keep the grads from leaving to house parties.Through a raffle and fundraising effort, a pre-owned 2017 Honda Civic was purchased and with the help of the community detailed to upgrade the car in a way that would make it appealing to the youth. Currently, the vehicle can be viewed in person on the showroom floor of Driving Force.For the draw of the vehicle, every graduate that attends Prom will have their name included, at 11:45 pm 10 names will be drawn and those graduates will be brought forward as they need to be present for their entry to be valid. From those 10 will be a reverse draw which counts down to the grad that wins the car. The other 9 students that are eliminated receive gift cards.This year’s Prom will be more like a social or gala where there will be high and low table seating with soft seating sections as well. Instead of formal dinner service, grads can expect appetizers and action stations where they can build their own tacos, burgers and mac n’ cheese bar.center_img Alaska Hi-Way AutobodyMulitia MufflerAutographicsIntegraTireDriving ForceTrimTekK-Mac Signs & GraphicsAlaska Hi-Way Auto Glasslast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The stage is set as the national capital goes to Lok Sabha polls on Sunday where the incumbent BJP, Delhi’s ruling AAP and the Congress are locked in a fight on all seven seats. The Congress is looking to bounce back after ending up at the third spot in the 2014 elections. The lead up to the polls has not been without drama, with allegations and counter-allegations flying, and it had all the trappings of a soap opera that could give the daily shows a run for their money. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehicles The high-octane poll campaigning in the national capital ended on Friday but not before it saw a plethora of stars descending here to campaign for their respective parties. If Hema Malini and Sunny Deol provided the Bollywood quotient to the saffron party’s campaign, Raj Babbar and Nagma added the star quotient to the Congress. Prakash Raj, Swara Bhaskar and Gul Panag campaigned for the AAP. From Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal being slapped to AAP’s East Delhi candidate Atishi breaking down at a press conference over “derogatory pamphlets” to BJP’s Udit Raj leaving the party and joining the Congress after being denied a ticket from northwest Delhi, the last two months been quite eventful and have kept everyone on their toes. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar The seven seats will see 164 candidates battling it out of which 18 are women. Prominent among them are former chief minister Sheila Dikshit from northeast Delhi, BJP’s incumbent MP Meenakshi Lekhi, who is contesting from New Delhi, and Atishi. BJP’s incumbent MP Manoj Tiwari is up against Dikshit for the Northeast Delhi seat and has already said that her entry has made the poll contest “one of the most interesting in the country”. AAP’s Dilip Pandey is also in the fray from the seat. Other prominent candidates in the race include veteran Congress leader Sheila Dikshit, Olympian boxer Vijender Singh, who is making his electoral debut from South Delhi, Union minister Harsh Vardhan from Chandni Chowk, and cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir. Voting will begin at 7 am on May 12 and it is scheduled to go on till 6 am. The 48 hour-period from 6 pm Friday to 6 pm Sunday, known as the silence period, will also be observed as ‘dry day’. A total of 13,819 polling stations will be set up at 2,700 locations in Delhi, with one model polling station in each of the 70 assembly segments. Seventeen polling stations will be staffed only by women. As many as 523 polling locations have been identified as critical and 60,000 personnel, including those of the Delhi Police, Home Guards and paramilitary, will be on their toes to ensure that there is no untoward incident. The campaign got off to a slow start as alliance talks between the AAP and the Congress lingered on till the last days of nomination, but it gained momentum over the last fortnight with senior leaders drawing huge crowds at mega rallies and road shows in the national capital. The campaign reached a crescendo in its last lap, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi holding a massive rally at the iconic Ramlila Maidan here, Congress president Rahul Gandhi addressing two public meetings, and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra taking out two roadshows in the city. From trying to strike a personal chord with voters in parks at six am to holding door-to-door campaigns till late night, the candidates literally sweated it out in the oppressive heat as mercury crossed the 40-degree Celsius mark. While the BJP’s campaign revolved around the party’s high-pitched nationalism narrative and the popularity of Modi, the Congress kept him in the cross hairs and sought to hard sell its minimum income guarantee scheme, Nyay. The AAP, on the other hand, focussed on the demand for full statehood for Delhi. Candidates also tried to out-maneuver each other before the poll body. AAP candidates Atishi and Raghav Chadha sought rejection of nomination papers of their BJP rivals Gautam Gambhir and Ramesh Bidhuri, respectively. Poll officers were also hard-pressed as several violations of the Model Code of Conduct were reported. In a security breach, Kejriwal was slapped by a man during a road show in Moti Nagar and allegations of horse trading flew thick and fast as two AAP MLAs, Anil Bajpai and Devinder Sehrawat, crossed over to the BJP. The campaigning also saw South Delhi BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri allegedly using a Hindi slur against Kejriwal. On the penultimate day, the AAP and the BJP sparred over a derogatory pamphlet that targeted Atishi. The AAP alleged her rival Gautam Gambhir was behind it, a charge vehemently denied by him. According to the summary of the electoral roll published on April 23, there are over 1.43 crore voters in Delhi, 78,73,022 male and 64,42,762 female, while 669 belong to the third gender. While 2,54,723 voters are in the age group of 18 and 19, there are 40,532 electorate with disability who would be provided pick up and drop facility. Nearly 270 FIRs and daily diary (DD) entries were registered against political parties and others here till date for violation of the poll code.last_img read more
