Difficult? Yes, but if it was not difficult it wouldn’t be for me.“I like the players and who they are. I like very much the relationship I have with them. If you see a bad face from me it is because of a bad result. I cannot change myself.“That’s just me. The reality is that I am happy and I look forward to what is coming, and even more for what is coming next season. I want to start working with them in July.”2LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerMerson had said: “I said when he went there it would give them a lift and there would be a charm offensive – and he was all smiles for a while.“But everyone knew it wouldn’t last, didn’t they?

The 2002 Copa del Rey was designed for Madrid to be champion. The RFEF selected the Santiago Bernabéu as the venue for the remaining and set the date of the match on March 6 to mark the centenary of the founding of the white membership, at the request after all of the Madrid entity. Not even the greatest nightclubs ever deliberate such a white Ibiza celebration.Actual Madrid was in the ascendant part in the galactic period. The earlier season the meringue set he had proclaimed himself champion of the League with the extraordinary signing of Figo and at the starting of the 2001-02 educational yr Florentino he had strengthened his squad with what was thought-about the finest participant in the world, Zinedine Zidane. That Madrid was designed to wipe out all competitions on its 100th anniversary: Del Bosque directed a squad through which, along with the two galactic exorbitants, Raúl, Roberto Carlos, Casillas, Hierro, Morientes, Makelele, Solari and Guti, amongst others, performed. However that Deportivo was not simply any group, it was Superdepor. And he didn’t wrinkle earlier than such a state of affairs. Los Molina, Mauro Silva, Tristán, Valerón, Capdevila and firm shaped a group of many carats and like the good contenders in boxing, they hit arduous as quickly as they began, to make it clear that they’d not gone to this point to be knocked out. 5 minutes later Sergio beat César (starter forward of Casillas that season) and overtook Depor, who was already sending 0-2 at the break thanks to a different purpose from Tristán. The Cup was the first title at stake. The prelude to a gloriously anticipated season. Madrid acquired Deportivo Javier Irureta in the remaining as a sparring heavyweight champion. A few months earlier, the Whites had overwhelmed the Galicians in what was Zidane’s first nice sport as a Actual Madrid participant (3-1). That assembly was a turning level for the Frenchman, who was being extremely criticized however responded to his detractors with a purpose and since then it was virtually unstoppable. With a full Zidane and a date so marked, that remaining appeared like a mere process to fill La Cibeles with individuals. Unbelief seized Madrid, who reacted too late. He closed the hole with a purpose from Raúl with simply over ten minutes left, however the combat was already misplaced. Since the Maracanazo in the 1950 World Cup, when Brazil fell to Uruguay and stayed at the gates of the World Cup, one thing related was not remembered. As then, the host fell with every part in favor. The night time that ought to have been the whitest in 100 years of Madrid’s historical past turned one in all the blackest ever for the complete of Chamartín. The phrase Centenariazo copied all the covers of March 7, 2002.Fortunately for Madrid, The Whites have been in a position to have a good time the birthday a few months later, in the remaining of the Glasgow Champions League. There, Madrid took the centennial season ahead with a word and conquered the Ninth in opposition to Bayer Leverkusen (2-1) with that unforgettable purpose by Zidane. It could have been tragic to not fill La Cibeles that 2002.
The Liberian Ambassador accredited to the Holy See and the Sovereign Order of Malta, Ambassador Rudolf von Ballmoos has presented his Letters of Credence to the Holy Father, Pope Francis at the Vatican City and the Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Malta, His Eminence Fra’ Matthew Festing at the Magisterial Palace in Rome, Italy.A dispatch from the Liberian Embassy in the United Kingdom says during separate statements at the two ceremonies, Ambassador Rudolf von Ballmoos extended special thanks on behalf of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to the Holy See and the Sovereign Order of Malta for the enormous support provided Liberia over the years in the areas of education, health and humanitarian services in support of government’s effort to eradicate poverty and consolidate the peace process.He made a specific request to the Holy See to support a regional education and awareness campaign with specific focus on religious tolerance, noting that “with the spread of different religious beliefs across the continent of Africa, it is prudent for people of different faith to coexist peacefully and tolerate one another”.On the Global scene, Ambassador von Ballmoos noted that “Liberia will continue to support dialogue and non-violence in the resolution of internal conflicts. He said, Liberia is pursuing a long-term national development agenda, The Liberia Rising Vision 2030, which aims to propel Liberia into a middle-income country capable of meeting and sustaining its own development aspirations by the year 2030.Towards, this end, we encourage Foreign Direct Investment in the vast resource based of the country, including the Agriculture and Mining sectors”. In response, the Holy Father, Pope Francis said” the proliferation of weapons of every type leads in the opposite direction of peace that we all speak about. The arms trade has the effect of complicating and distancing us from a solution to conflicts, all the more so since it takes place to a great extent outside the boundaries of the law.Therefore, I consider that, while we are gathered in this Apostolic See, which by nature is invested in a special service to the cause of peace, we can unite our voices in expressing hope that the international community may make new, concerted and courageous efforts against the proliferation of weapons and to promote their reduction”.The Holy Father mentioned that another challenge to peace, which “unfortunately takes on, in certain regions and in certain moments, the nature of a full-blown human tragedy”, is that of forced migration.He commented that it is a very complex phenomenon, and recognised that important efforts are being made by international organisations, States, and social bodies, as well as religious communities and volunteer groups, to respond “in a civil and organised way to the most critical aspects, emergencies, and situations of greatest need”.Pope Francis lamented that the global community cannot limit itself to reacting to emergencies, but rather the moment has arrived to face it with a serious and responsible political outlook, involving all levels: global, continental, macro-regional, in relations between nations, and finally at national and local levels”.Also speaking at a separate ceremony, His Most Eminent Highness Fra’ Matthew Festing said beyond its humanitarian activities, the Sovereign Order of Malta is also committed both to building new bridges of understanding so as to foster dialogue and respect for cultural diversities and to promoting human dignity as the most effective strategy for eliminating inequalities between countries and social groups.”I am certain that the recent accreditation of the first permanent representative of the Sovereign Order of Malta to the African Union will enable an even more effective collaboration among the different countries for improvement in the living conditions of the populations of Africa.In addition to our engagement in Liberia, we have identified new projects relating to the training of dentists and doctors, as well as the fight against epidemics and renewed shipments of medicines and medical equipment for hospitals in Liberia” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

21-year-old Matthew Pennington only had made one senior appearance for Everton 1 Everton have been forced to recall young defender Matthew Pennington from his loan spell at Walsall, and the 21-year-old is set to be immediately drafted into the Toffees’ FA Cup squad.The Merseyside club have suffered a defensive injury crisis ahead of tomorrow’s semi-final against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.Martinez will make late calls on the fitness of Phil Jagielka and John Stones, while Seamus Coleman and Ramires Funes Mori will definitely miss the game through injury and suspension respectively.Pennington has only been with the League One high-flyers Walsall since the start of April, but earned rave reviews in the five appearances he made for the Saddlers.Pennington made his senior Everton debut in a Capital One Cup tie against Barnsley back in August and also featured in the FA Cup win over Dagenham and Redbridge earlier this year.And, in a press conference on Friday ahead of Saturday’s game, Martinez confirmed the youngster will be in the squad. Though he also cast doubts on Jagielka’s involvement.“Medically it’s clear that he shouldn’t be available for the game,” the Spaniard said when asked about the England international defender.“Knowing Phil Jagielka, he wouldn’t accept no as an answer, and we’re going to give him every opportunity to see if we can get him available. I just feel it’s too big of an ask for him and Seamus Coleman but we’ll assess him.“Clearly the one we need to assess closely is John Stones, who has got a better opportunity.”
James Tavernier has become the latest Rangers player to sign an extended contract.The right-back has added a year to his current deal to commit himself to Ibrox until the summer of 2019.The 24-year-old hit 15 goals for Rangers last season after joining from Wigan and netted on Saturday as Mark Warburton’s team opened their campaign with a 2-0 League Cup win at Motherwell.Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and defender Rob Kiernan also signed extensions this week – following the lead of skipper Lee Wallace earlier this summer.And Martyn Waghorn is also expected to follow suit in the coming days.The business sees Warburton continue making long-term plans for Rangers after completing his ninth summer signing this week when he brought in Joe Dodoo from Leicester.The 21-year-old striker could make his debut when Rangers face East Stirlingshire in the League Cup on Friday night.Warburton – who will make a number of changes at Ochilview after the 2-0 win over Annan – said: “Joe is a young player with lots of qualities, lots of attributes, and if he trains well and makes an impression he will get his chance.“That has to be the case. There is no pre-agendas. If a player comes in and works hard and delivers in training, they will get their opportunity.“We’ve lost eight players and brought in nine – with maybe a couple more to come in – but there still has to be a pathway to the first team.”Even if Warburton fails to land the extra striker and centre-back he is looking for, he says his recent business has been more than satisfactory.“So far it’s been an outstanding summer in terms of getting that balance right,” he said.“We’re looking for that depth, that quality, that spark we may currently lack. But we’re delighted. The players are starting to gel and the fitness levels are starting to fall into place.“What we won’t do is just add numbers for numbers sake. They have to have something we don’t currently possess.”The Rangers boss believes one of his signings, Josh Windass, has already proven his worth.The 22-year-old former Accrington midfielder made an immediate impression on his debut against Motherwell with his driving runs and was equally as impressive against Annan.Warburton said: “If you look back at last season, not many fans would have heard of Tav, Waggy, Rob Kiernan or Wes Foderingham before they came here.“But they came and made an impression. So I think you have to give credit to our scouting department in terms of looking at our young talents.“Josh has already shown his quality. He’s got a change of pace, a dynamism in the final third and he’s clever on the ball.“So with him, I think you will see another young player – just as you will with Joe Dodoo and Jordan Rossiter – pushing really hard.“They haven’t come here to make up the numbers. Josh is a really exciting talent. We’re delighted with his progress so far. It’s early days and he knows what he has to do but we believe there is a real player there.”Meanwhile, Warburton has confirmed Matt Crooks is still three weeks away from returning to action after ankle trouble.

The complex, at 5355 Cartwright Ave. in North Hollywood, looks deceptively small from the front. But once inside it seems to go on forever, with narrow concrete hallways illuminated with industrial lighting leading to doors that open to living areas filled with natural light. A stairway that was part of the original factory leads to a rooftop that features a penthouse, shallow pool, workout room, clubhouse, barbecue area and a penthouse. “It creates kind of a unique campus feeling. When you get inside you can feel lost among the unique units,” said Markel. No two units, which range in size from 600 square feet to 2,000 square feet, are alike. Rents will range from $1,100 to $3,000 a month. The complex features a two-level underground parking garage with 116 spaces. The target market is people who want to work from home. “It’s provided an upside for the generation of people who are working out of a Starbucks on their laptops. Our live-work lofts accommodate that type of young professional,” Markel said. From the north side of the complex, residents will be able to access a bike path that will stretch from Burbank to the West Valley. A metro stop is less than a mile away. The company also owns a lot across the street and plans to build 20 to 25 more loft units. “We truly believe in the North Hollywood area being one of the up-and-coming areas of Los Angeles. It started with the Screen Actors Building on Magnolia. And we’ve looked at what’s going on downtown with the lofts movement and we were fascinated by those,” Markel said. Tom Gallop, the company’s co-founder and chief operating officer, said there is a tax incentive to this kind of living. Tenants who work from their units can write off a big chunk of their rent. The DT Group is not the only developer to jump into the loft market. Los Angeles-based J.H. Snyder is building a mixed-used loft complex along the east side of Lankershim Avenue between Weddington Street and Chandler Boulevard. This project will include a Howe’s Market on Lankershim. Called NoHo Commons, it will feature 278 loft-style apartments and 14 classified “live work” units. It’s centered on the the North Hollywood Red Line station. Cliff Goldstein, a senior partner at Snyder, said retail will take up 60,000 square feet of the space, with residential accounting for 225,000 square feet. “I think its reflective of urban living. Young couples, senior couples and single professionals … will find the proximity to the transit site an attractive feature,” he said. “And we’re beginning to see younger folks coming back and revitalizing the North Hollywood area.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

As the Studio City-based developer likes to say, “SOHO is coming to NOHO.” That’s a catchy reference to what DT executives say is the first industrial building conversion into residential lofts in the San Fernando Valley. The company has turned the old Adolph’s Meat Tenderizer testing facility into 68 units, each with its own personality, and this weekend is hosting an open house at the complex. Initially the company will rent them, but prospective tenants have expressed interest in owning, so plans call for a second conversion, this time to condominiums.
Basic Farm Payments of €44,113,841.06 have been paid to Donegal farmers so far in 2015. A total of 7,837 farmers across the county have received Basic Farm Payments so far in 2015, making up 95.17% of payments. In 2016, €1.2 billion in direct funding will be made available from the EU to fund the Basic Payment Scheme nationally.Minister Joe McHugh said “This money is essential to support agriculture and farming families in Donegal. Basic Farm Payments are also key in supporting the local economy as farmers can spend this money with local suppliers and in small businesses.“The food industry in Ireland is worth €26 billion and directly employs 170,000 people. Farmers are at the centre of this and it is essential that we offer every support possible. For two successive budgets farming agri-taxation measures have played a central part in the Budget.“Major new initiatives on ‘Family Transfer Partnerships’ have been introduced to assist in the transfer of land. We have also renewed relief measures on general stock income tax; for young trained farmers and registered farm partnerships. Stamp duty exemptions have been maintained on transfers of land to young trained farmers. This Government has also increased the tax free threshold for Capital Acquisitions Tax by about one quarter from €225,000 to €280,000. “Changes made to the taxation of the self-employed will impact on most farmers who will benefit from the new €550 tax credit and reduced USC rates. These changes will mean over €800 in additional net income.“In 2016, €494 million has been ring-fenced for the Rural Development Programme, a 12% increase; €195 million for Areas of Natural Constraint (ANCs); €35.8 million for TAMS, €52 million for the Beef Data Genomics Programme and €203 million for Agri–Environment Schemes including GLAS, AEOS and ORGANICS.“This Government has prioritised agriculture and makes no apology for that. The agri-food sector has been essential in driving the recovery and is playing a major role as we work to keep the recovery going in Donegal and in all parts of the country.”DONEGAL FARMERS RECEIVED MORE THAN €44M IN BASIC SUPPORT GRANTS was last modified: December 2nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BoostfarmingFeaturesnewspayments
