Dr. Douglas disclosed that it could cost up to US$50 million to bring the Agency into operation, but said most of this would come from the redirection of funds from the five bodies, which are to be merged.Meanwhile, he said discussions are to take place with new Trinidadian Prime Minister, Hon.

Visit: Federico Chiesa breathed a sigh of relief after finally scoring his first senior Italy goal. “We genuinely enjoy our football and it’s a pleasure to be here.” The Fiorentina winger hit the woodwork twice during the 9-1 win over Armenia before he broke through with a glancing header. “I am happy with my first goal for the Nazionale, but above all the performance from the team and the fact we genuinely enjoy our football,” Chiesa told Rai Sport. “We enjoy it on the pitch during a match, we enjoy ourselves in training, and it’s a pleasure to be here. Coach Roberto Mancini drilled that enthusiasm into us from the first day, he told us we are a strong national team and we’re proving it on the field.” Italy have won all 10 games in their Euro 2020 qualifying group, with a goal difference of +33. “The Coach asked me to play like this, to move constantly, be positive, attack the space and be open to receive passes. I just do what the coach asks. “I quite rightly feel good, especially after my first goal! I still have a lot to do in order to earn my place at the European Championships.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Hornsby Lions have won through to the NSWTA Vawdon Cup Men’s Premier League Grand Final after a thrilling win over the Penrith Panthers on Friday, 17 October 2008.An outstanding attacking game from Hornsby’s Willie Bishop set the scene for their progression to the Grand Final from third place. Close to the line, Bishop was unstoppable and slid over multiple times for touchdowns. The general of Hornsby’s attack was Dylan Hennessey who has present claims to be the leading male player in the country. Hennessey again had a great game backing up a week after disposing of a star studded Wests line-up including an in form Jason Stanton.Minor Premiers, the Penrith Panthers would be disappointed about consecutive losses but the future bodes well for future Vawdon Cup and their assault at State Cup. Ben Moylan was outstanding in both attack and defence for Penrith and was well supported by Nicholas Good.In the Mixed, the Central Coast ran riot over a depleted Roosters outfit. Nash Beeby and Harry Berryman were solid for the Coasties while Billy McMahon and a very tired Manu Wakely tried hard for Easts.In the Women’s Premier League, Canterbury defeated Easts to set-up and mouth watering repeat of the 2007 Grand Final against the Wests Magpies.The Grand Finals of the 2008 NSWTA Vawdon Cup will occur at Tempe on Friday, 24 October 2008 with fixtures as follows:Men’s Premier League: Canterbury Bulldogs v Hornsby Lions @ 9:30pm (Field One)Women’s Premier League: Wests Magpies v Canterbury Bulldogs @ 7:50pm (Field One)Mixed Premier League: Wests Magpies v Central Coast Dolphins @ 8:40pm (Field One)Men’s Division One: Wests Magpies v Penrith Panthers @ 7:00pm (Field One)Women’s Division One: Easts Roosters v Cronulla Sharks @ 8:40pm (Field Two)Mixed Division One: Liverpool Lightning v Cronulla Sharks @ 7:00pm (Field Three)Men’s Division Two: Varsity v Liverpool Lightning @ 7:00pm (Field Two)Women’s Division Two: Parramatta Eels v Penrith Panthers 1 @ 8:40pm (Field Four)Men’s Seniors: Wests Magpies v Penrith Panthers @ 8:40pm (Field Three)Men’s Masters: Penrith Panthers 1 v Manly Sea Eagles @ 7:00pm (Field Four)For further information, visit the NSWTA Vawdon Cup website – read more

first_imgRIYADH, Saudi Arabia – A defiant message delivered by Saudi Arabia’s crown prince to investors gathered in Riyadh may not be enough to repair the damage inflicted to his global standing as he faces continued international pressure over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.Participants of the high-profile investment forum Thursday were taking stock of the outcome of his first public remarks on the killing, in which the crown prince appeared unwavering and fiery, calling it a “heinous” and “painful” act before warning anyone against trying to “manipulate” the crisis.Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of the crown prince, was killed Oct. 2 when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by Saudi agents, including reportedly a member of the crown prince’s entourage on trips abroad. The killing has marred Prince Mohammed’s standing, with critics suspecting he ordered the high-profile operation or at least knew about it.On Thursday, Saudi Arabia said initial Turkish investigations revealed the killing was “premeditated.” The acknowledgement comes after varying Saudi accounts of the incident, including initially saying that Khashoggi had walked out of their consulate alive.Global outcry over the writer’s disappearance saw more than 100 participants, including numerous CEOs of major U.S. corporations and Western officials, cancel their participation in the three-day investment forum, which concluded on Thursday.Last year, the forum debuted with the crown prince wowing an international crowd of global business titans with his vision of reforming and modernizing Saudi Arabia both socially and economically. The kingdom is seeking trillions of dollars in new investment to create millions of jobs for young Saudis entering the workforce.David Hamod, president and CEO of the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce, was among the thousands inside the ornate hall Wednesday evening when Prince Mohammed gave his remarks. He said the showing by the 33-year-old heir to the throne “was electrifying” and “lit up the hall.”“I believe it gave the Saudis a great deal of confidence, hearing what the crown prince had to say,” Hamod said. “Having said that I think a lot of U.S. companies are still on pause. They’re on a wait-and-see mode.”Rather than cancel their participation altogether, some companies sent mid-level executives to keep lines of communication and business open with Saudi Arabia.Several participants in attendance from the U.S. declined to speak with the AP at the forum, reflecting a general nervousness among the Americans in attendance.Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, which Prince Mohammed oversees, was the organizer of the event. Some of the Public Investment Fund’s biggest partners — including the CEOs of U.S. private equity fund Blackstone and Japan’s technology giant Softbank — were among those who backed out of the forum, even as PIF has invested billions of dollars in both.As he walked through the marbled reception area of the Ritz-Carlton where the event was held, the head of the PIF, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, declined on Thursday to answer questions from an AP reporter about whether he saw this year’s forum as a success.As Western companies pulled back, the summit drew support from Prince Mohammed’s allies across the region. Jordan’s king, Dubai’s ruler, Pakistan’s prime minister and Bahrain’s crown prince were among the heads of state who attended. Lebanon’s premier, whose party is backed by Saudi Arabia, was also in attendance..Russian and Asian investors were also present. The forum saw some $55 billion in investments signed, mostly in Saudi Arabia’s lucrative energy market. However, the crown prince is looking for investments that shift the kingdom’s economy away from its reliance on oil.Hamod said it was regrettable that numerous U.S. companies did not have a seat at the table at this year’s summit.“But I certainly understand why. They have stakeholders. They have institutional shareholders to which they’re held accountable, so we’ll have to wait and see whether their position in the aftermath of yesterday’s speech changes,” he said.___Associated Press writer Malak Harb contributed from Riyadh.last_img read more

first_imgMumbai: On the advent of artificial technology and rapid adoption of technology in the country, human resource professionals believe that one-third of existing job roles in various industries will get automated in the next three years, according to a survey. A survey by job portal has revealed that one-third of existing job roles in various industries will get automated in the next 3 years changing the Indian jobs landscape. The survey was done by job portal has conducted a survey in metro cities among HR professionals in sectors including IT, education and training, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), manufacturing, retail, auto among others.

first_imgLondon: Now that everyone knows Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have a baby boy, there is widespread speculation about what he will be called. Royals have a way of taking their time about naming babies and the couple is known to want to do things at their own pace, so it may be a few days before the couple reveals the name for their first child. Britain’s legal bookmakers Tuesday reported high interest in the names Alexander, James and Arthur. Bookmakers also report speculation about the name Spencer, the maiden name of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. Choosing Spencer as a first or middle name is seen as a way for Harry to honour Diana, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997 when he was only 12. He spoke before he married Meghan last year about his desire to pay tribute to her memory during the ceremony. Others believe Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will choose a name that reflects her American heritage. The infant, known only as Baby Sussex for the moment, was born early Monday morning. The royal couple has not said if he was born at home or at a hospital. Harry said when he announced the birth Monday that he and Meghan are “thinking” about names and hinted that an announcement might be made on Wednesday on shortly thereafter. The couple is also expected to pose with their newborn or release a photo on their Instagram account. The couple is also expected to name godparents to the child at a future date.last_img read more

Play ‘em Jay Cutler (Chicago): It’s time to consider Cutler a legitimate fantasy starter. Last week, Cutler threw for 247 yards and four touchdowns against Philadelphia. This week, he faces a Detroit defense that is allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. When Cutler faced the Lions in Week 1, he threw for 372 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Felix Jones (Dallas): Despite a hip injury, Jones turned in a relatively successful performance last week (44 rushing yards and 69 receiving yards). Jones should be more involved in the Cowboys’ offense against the Colts’ 29th-ranked run defense this week. The problem with Jones is that he is losing goal-line touches, but consider him a No. 2 running back for Week 13. Mike Tolbert (San Diego): Tolbert continues to produce with starter Ryan Mathews out because of an ankle injury. Last week, Tolbert recorded his second straight 100-yard performance (103 yards with a touchdown). Mathews could return this week, but Tolbert is clearly the better back in San Diego. Look for Tolbert to take advantage of an Oakland defense that is allowing 134 rushing yards per game. Jeremy Maclin (Philadelphia): Maclin is benefiting from the emergence of Michael Vick. Last week, he had 47 receiving yards with a touchdown. Those numbers will inflate because Maclin faces a Texans’ pass defense allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Maclin is becoming the main target in Philadelphia and is a must-start Thursday night. Santonio Holmes (New York): Holmes has been on a hot streak in his last three games, with four touchdowns and 246 yards. Holmes has developed a bond with Mark Sanchez, and that has translated to fantasy production. Holmes plays his best in big games, and this week against the Patriots fits the bill of a big game. Expect Holmes to take advantage of the NFL’s worst pass defense. Bench ‘em Carson Palmer (Cincinnati): Palmer is coming off a stretch in which he had thrown seven interceptions in three games. Those struggles will continue against the Saints. Only three quarterbacks have surpassed 230 yards or more against New Orleans, which has given up a total of just seven touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks. Palmer, at best, is a No. 2 fantasy quarterback for this matchup. Jon Kitna (Dallas): Kitna has been filling in nicely for Tony Romo, but this week he faces a Colts defense that has struggled against the run but not the pass (just 205 yards per game). On Sunday night, the Colts held Philip Rivers to just 185 yards. Maurice Morris (Detroit): Morris was a top pickup after his surprising performance on Thanksgiving, when he totaled 75 yards and two touchdowns. With the Lions’ running back situation and playing the Bears this week, don’t trust Morris going forward. The Bears rank second in the league in run defense, giving up just 81 yards per game. Keiland Williams (Washington): The Redskins’ running game has been a circus with Clinton Portis and Ryan Torain getting injured, and now coach Mike Shanahan is considering starting James Davis in the place of Williams. Williams managed a total of 26 yards against Minnesota last week. Running backs are averaging 13 fantasy points in standard leagues, fifth-fewest in the NFL, against Washington’s opponent this week, the Giants. Santana Moss (Washington): Moss has been inconsistent this season and he has been dealing with a knee injury that caused him to get only 40 yards last week. The injury appears to be all right, but the Redskins’ offense is a mess, which will cut into Moss’ production. The last time Moss played the Giants, he gained just 55 yards. read more
