Gattuso delighted to work with Ivan Gazidis

first_imgAC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has welcomed former Arsenal top executive Ivan Gazidis to the club and then went further to claim he wants to improve as a managerToday new CEO Gazidis visited the training ground and had lunch with the Coach, directors Leonardo and Paolo Maldini.“Gazidis is a man who knows football, who took Arsenal to excellent sporting and economic levels. He’s fascinating when he speaks and you gladly listen to him, as you can tell his experience,” said Gattuso in his Press conference via Football Italia.Rumours are widespread Milan are in negotiations to bring Cesc Fabregas in from Chelsea.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Of course I’d like to work with Fabregas, much as I’d like to work with Luke Modric and Ngolo Kante. These are all questions for Leonardo and Maldini, not for me.“At this moment, I assure you, I don’t want to think about the transfer market. If a deal is 80-90 percent done, then they talk to me.”There was almost an extraordinary signing last year, as former director of sports Massimiliano Mirabelli claimed he was in advanced negotiations to take Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, long before he went to Juventus for €100m.“If Mirabelli said that, then it’s true. There are also many other elements in there, which I also confirm. You wanted a few more details, eh?” smiled Gattuso.last_img read more

Pep Guardiola warns Liverpool about pressure

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes Liverpool are showing the same hunger his team showed last season, but insists the pressure of being favorites is tough to handle.Jurgen Klopp’s men can increase their lead over City to 10 points should they win Thursday’s clash between the two clubs at the Etihad Stadium.Liverpool are still unbeaten in the Premier League and looking strong as the Citizens were when they won the league last season.Guardiola said, according to BT Sport:“My feeling is last season it was a little bit easier to maintain that hunger because 80 per cent of the players had not won anything in our lives.”“I can feel what they feel, the Liverpool players. After 29 years not winning the Premier League, to be there to win the Premier League, I understand.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“I said to the players, that’s difficult to handle.”City, who are currently seated in third position, are now facing a different kind of pressure in trying to usurp Liverpool at the top of the Premier League standings.Guardiola admits he is uncertain if his players are capable of mounting such a challenge.He said: “If it is different pressure, we have to live it, we have to handle it.”“What do I think? Yes, we are ready. I (personally) don’t have doubts, but honestly I don’t know (for certain).”last_img read more

It is operated by Father Joes Villages and will offer services specifically geared toward families and their children.“These bridge shelters are giving hundreds of homeless folks who want to turn their lives around the opportunity to do so,” Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. “This new shelter is a safe place for families and women who had nowhere else to go. It will provide the stability they need as they work toward finding a home to call their own.”There are several child-centered services specific to this shelter, including access to daycare, behavioral interventions, speech and language therapy, a teen club and literacy services.Like the other two shelters, this one at 14th and Commercial streets includes storage, showers, bathrooms, laundry services, alcohol and substance abuse counseling and mental health services, according to the mayor’s office.Each resident will be assigned a case manager and housing navigator who will develop a plan to get them permanently housed.City officials were pressured to act by an outbreak of hepatitis A that killed 20 people and sickened hundreds — about two-thirds of whom were either homeless, users of illegal drugs or both. The rate of new infections has slowed in recent weeks.The first tent shelter, for single adults, opened Dec. 1 at 16th Street and Newton Avenue in Barrio Logan and is run by the nonprofit Alpha Project.The other is located in the Midway District and is designed to serve veterans. It is run by Veterans Village of San Diego.The East Village shelter will be open through November. Father Joe’s Villages in early 2019 plans to build permanent supportive housing on the site.“As we prepare to build permanent homes to address the shortage of affordable housing for those who are homeless, setting up this temporary shelter on our available lot is simply the right thing to do,” says Deacon Jim Vargas, president of Father Joe’s Villages. “Our community’s homelessness crisis demands both forward thinking and immediate action.”The three bridge shelters have brought the number of shelter beds in San Diego to 2,040, according to the mayor’s office. center_img January 5, 2018 Posted: January 5, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Father Joe’s Villages, homeless, Kevin Faulconer FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Mike Holden said. At the time, the victim was suffering from “multiple stab wounds to his body” but was still alive.Responding officers arrived at the scene and found the 66-year-old victim lying in a second-floor hallway, Holden said.“Officers provided immediate medical aid to the victim, who was transported by paramedics to Scripps (Memorial Hospital) in La Jolla,” Holden said. “Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced deceased at the hospital.”At the condo where the victim lived, officers found and arrested the suspect, identified by police only as the victim’s 37-year-old nephew. The names of both men were being withheld pending family notifications.Homicide detectives did not immediately know the motive for the slaying.Anyone with information regarding the stabbing was asked to call the San Diego Police Department’s homicide unit at (619) 531-2293, or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. last_img read more

Joyous Juneteenth celebration hails freedom from slavery in US

first_img Juneteenth, the oldest annual celebration of the end of slavery in America, arrived in Vancouver on Saturday, when the local chapter of the NAACP gathered at Marine Park to acknowledge the historic event with song, poetry and an official nod from Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt.Leavitt presented the group with a proclamation recognizing Juneteenth Celebration Day in Vancouver. Traditionally, members of the group went to Portland to celebrate the event rather than having their own do in Clark County.“We have a lot of cultural and ethnic diversity that we should be embracing as a community,” Leavitt said.The group sang the African American national anthem, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing.” The American people have more than one anthem, and the African American national anthem is for everyone, said Ethell Tillis, emcee of the event. Tillis and six of her grandchildren later sang “Oh Happy Day” for the crowd.Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, recognizes the day when news reached slaves in Texas that the Civil War had ended and they were free.President Abraham Lincoln freed slaves in the Confederacy in 1862 as a wartime contingency through the Emancipation Proclamation, and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution permanently banned slavery throughout the nation in early 1865 — but Texas still refused to comply, even after the war officially ended in April. Ethell Tillis, center, emcees the Juneteenth celebration Saturday at Marine Park in Vancouver.last_img read more

Washington primary turnout dismal 23 percent

first_imgTurnout for Clark County’s primary stands at 19.43 percent as of Thursday morning, according to the elections office. Only 125,921 people were eligible to vote this year, most of whom live in the city of Vancouver.OLYMPIA — The Washington secretary of state’s office says the turnout in Tuesday’s primary election was “dismal,” but in line with similar off-year elections.Spokesman David Ammons says 23 percent of the ballots have been counted as of Thursday. That number could edge up toward the 30 percent expected figure by the time counties certify results 20 days after the election.Ammons says the size the vote is affected by the candidates and issues on the ballot and how much campaigning and interest they generate.The turnout was nearly 39 percent in the primary last August and 81 percent for the general election with the president on the ballot.Three counties didn’t have primaries this year so only 3.1 million ballots were mailed. Washington has 4 million registered voters.last_img read more

Lend Lease launches wellbeing days

first_imgEmployee Benefits Live 2015: Lend Lease has introduced paid ‘wellbeing days’ for staff to use to rest and recuperate, so they can return to work and perform at their optimum level.The scheme has been launched on a trust basis, with staff expected to take one wellbeing day per quarter throughout the year at their own discretion, ensuring that they manage their workload accordingly.The initiative is part of a health and wellbeing scheme that the property and construction organisation launched last summer.As part of her presentation on the scheme at Employee Benefits Live 2015, Gemma Bourne, head of social sustainability at Lend Lease, said: “We knew there was a business case for health and wellbeing [around] maintaining sustained high performance, so [we wanted a scheme that enabled staff to] perform at their best now and be safe.”She added that it was also key for the organisation to create a culture with which to attract its future workforce.The research phase of the project involved Bupa health checks for Lend Lease’s 18,000-strong workforce, to produce sufficient data with which the employer could identify strategic health and wellbeing hotspots around which to target appropriate interventions.Bourne said that the organisation’s previous lack of data was due to the absence of a robust sickness absence reporting system.Lend Lease identified three hotpots across its workforce as a result of the analysis: mental ill health, high blood pressure and fatigue.In response, it has launched a network of 84 mental health first aiders, which has been tasked with spotting the signs and symptoms of employees suffering with excessive stress levels and triaging them to the right support system.The organisation has also launched a Fitbit loan scheme, enabling staff to loan the fitness gadget, which monitors users’ daily activity and food intake, for up to three months by way of a reminder for them to keep track and in control of their own health and wellbeing.Finally, Lend Lease has worked with Healthscreen UK to scan employees at risk of sun damage for melanoma, which has resulted in the detection of 23 cases of skin cancer. Flu vaccinations are also now available to all staff.According to Bourne, the organisation’s employee engagement survey, which it undertakes every two years, has shown a 5% increase in employees’ commitment level to the organisation as a direct result of its health and wellbeing efforts.The employer invests £400 per employee per year in health and wellbeing, with the latest scheme funded through its foundation, which is an internal business unit that was launched to develop and benefit employees 30 years.last_img read more

23 of expatriates move abroad for increased pay and benefits

first_imgJust under a quarter (23%) of expatriate respondents move abroad to gain increased pay and benefits, according to research by global healthcare organisation Axa PPP International.Its survey of 501 expatriates living in a country different to that of their birth also found that 55% of respondents who have moved abroad for better pay and benefits agree that the move had met their expectations.The research also found:15% of respondents relocate abroad to work to achieve a better work-life balance, and 52% of respondents who moved for this reason feel that it met their expectations.30% of respondents move abroad for better career opportunities, and 38% of these respondents agree the relocation had matched their expectations.14% of respondents move to a different country to work in order to gain a better environment to raise a family, and 68% of these respondents agree the move had lived up to their expectations.58% of respondents cite wrapping up their role and responsibilities in the UK as the most important thing to organise before leaving home to work in a new country. Other priorities include making arrangements for family members staying behind (42%), transferring finances from one country to another (37%), selling their car (33%), and cancelling or amending insurance and utilities (32%).Tom Wilkinson (pictured), chief executive officer, global healthcare business at Axa, said: “It’s true that moving abroad can present some fantastic opportunities for career development, many of which may not be as readily available at home. Moving abroad, expats might be given the chance to learn about new emerging markets or experience different customer segments as well as enjoy lifestyle benefits such as an improved work-life balance.“That said, it’s important to remain realistic and suitably prepare for what’s ahead so that expectations are more likely to be met. In certain countries, such as New Zealand, for example, wages are typically higher than those in the UK. However, this tends to be indicative of other factors such as higher local living costs.”last_img read more
