“Of course Bale can train for five days a week”

first_imgLet Bale continue until 2022: “There is no problem. He says his contract and will continue here. ”Bale has asked for explanations: “We always comment, but I’m not here to talk about it. He hasn’t been in the last calls for things … I have to choose. I’m going to have Gareth, because we know what he can give us. I want it to be fine to play. ”Bale, on the list: “You can enter the call, because you are ready. You will see it later. I am not going to say it. We start like this and I will not change. ”Touch Bale for not calling him: “It is not. The problem is mine. What players have to do is be available. There is no solution with Gareth because there is no problem. It may seem so, but not. ” Gareth Bale was the focus of the press conference of Zinedine Zidane on the eve of the match that Real Madrid will play against Osasuna. In an interview in AS, Jonathan Barnett, his agent, said that the Welshman cannot train five days a week and that the French technician knows it. He denied it: “Of course he is very capable of training five days a week. And he did, for example, after the last game. ”Happy with Bale: “Yes. I am happy with everyone I have. I have 25 players and I must make a call before each match. There is no problem. He will continue working and we will have him ”.Bale arrived with the game started and left before: “I don’t think it was disrespectful. He wants to be here, train and fight. There are times when it is not, as in the last calls, but that does not mean anything.last_img read more

Bandits invade Corentyne home

first_img– cart off cash, jewellery Four armed gunmen on Saturday morning invaded the home of a Corentyne family, carting off in excess ofThe home the gunmen invaded$500,000 in cash and an undisclosed amount of jewellery.Reports are at about 03:45h, the men entered the house at Hog Style Village Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) after climbing onto a veranda at the back of the house. At the time, Abid Ally and his parents were in the house and preparing for their Ramadan fast.Ally told Guyana Times that as his father opened the veranda door, two men who were waiting immediately pounced on him. The older Ally was gun butted and later had to seek medical attention.According to the son, the men broke a fence in the back yard to gain access and then climbed onto the veranda. He said of the four, one remained under the house as a lookout.The elder Ally is the supervisor at a petrol service station in the village while his 21-year-old son is a student. It is believed that the intruders were after money which it is believed Ally keeps for the gas station.According to the son, after the men entered the house, they ordered his father to lie on the floor and then went into his parents’ bedroom and ransacked it. It was there that they found cash and jewellery along with an iPod.The ordeal lasted between three to five minutes. Ally related that the men all had handkerchiefs on their faces and were unrecognisable.Divisional Commander Ina Amsterdam who visited the scene said the perpetrators were familiar with the area and Ally’s timing. He said two persons are in custody as Police continue to investigate the incident.last_img read more

Exxon debunks hotel construction plan claims

first_img– admits it is examining constructing HQ in GuyanaOil sectorReports that oil giant ExxonMobil is planning to construct a hotel in Guyana are being debunked by the company. However, the company will be embarking on a construction project in Guyana.ExxonMobil’s Senior Director of Public and Government Affairs, Kimberly Brasington, related to this publication that reports in relation to the company planning to construct a hotel in Guyana are in fact inaccurate; but the company is currently examining its options for setting up local headquarters.ExxonMobil’s Senior Director of Public and Government Affairs, Kimberly Brasington“I can confirm that ExxonMobil Guyana is not planning to build a hotel; that is inaccurate information,” Brassington explained. “We currently lease two office buildings. (So) we are looking at options to commission an office to accommodate our long-term growth and commitment to Guyana over the next several decades,” she explained.Concerns have previously been raised about foreign companies setting up shop in Guyana but not employing Guyanese for jobs they could theoretically do. In Exxon’s case, Brassington sought to assure that Guyanese will be hired for its construction projects, in accordance with what the company has already been doing for Local Content.“The same commitment we apply to Local Content in our operations will be upheld in any potential new office project. We strive to employ Guyanese in both short-term and long-term positions,” she said. “We have over 50% Guyanese currently working to support our operations already, and that will increase over the decades to come.”PlansAccording to media reports, some 10 acres of land currently under the control of Ogle Airport Incorporated (OAI) have been earmarked for the company pending approval from the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission. In fact, a plan for leasing the land has reportedly been drawn up.Included in the report were claims that the company planned to construct a helipad, training centre and living quarters equivalent to a hotel. Public Relations consultant Kit Nascimento was also quoted as confirming this arrangement. This publication’s efforts to contact Nascimento were futile.Such a venture would have potential implications for Local Content. At the moment, Government is in the process of attracting investors for an entertainment complex in a bid to make the Marriott Hotel more viable. In addition, there are a number of other local hotels that would have had to compete against a new commercial hotel.Local Content and what it would do for Guyana have been burning questions since the announcement of oil being found in the Stabroek block. After Exxon first tempered expectations by saying that few job opportunities would be created by the oil find, it has since said that it would help with Local Content delivery.In July last year, Exxon opened its Centre for Local Business Development (CLBD), to provide support to existing and potential new suppliers and other stakeholders wishing to develop local companies.Located on the third floor of the IPED Building on South Road, Georgetown, the CLBD, it is understood, will offer customised coaching to entrepreneurs in addition to financial support and business networking opportunities. The initial focus is also expected to be on local vendors serving key sectors of the oil-and-gas industry.And according to CLBD Project Director Patrick Henry, the centre would conduct courses such as financial management alongside the Institute for Private Enterprise Development (IPED) and other partners.But other things have so far not materialised. Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman had, in 2016, announced that Cabinet had given its ‘no objection’ to the establishment of the onshore industrial site on Crab Island, in the mouth of the Berbice River.He had said it would be forged through the joint efforts of the ministries of Natural Resources, Public Infrastructure and Business.Construction was announced for early 2017, and the investments from the private sector and Government’s infrastructural work and support were to be equivalent to US$500 million; but to this day, the Crab Island facility has not materialised.There is also a draft Local Content law that was prepared by the Government. It is not clear if it is still actively in the consultative stage, however, as it is yet to be presented to the National Assembly.last_img read more

Valley a victim of battle of the bulge

first_imgThe aquifer beneath the San Gabriel Valley is so engorged with water that it has stretched and expanded by almost 2 inches in a matter of months, according to a recent U.S. Geological Survey study. The study’s results, announced last week, showed the San Gabriel Valley rose almost 2 inches in less than four months in 2005, and that the margins of the basin expanded by almost a half-inch. Researchers believe the expansion was due to groundwater recharge caused by the near-record rainfall of 2004-05. The San Gabriel Basin can hold upward of 2.8 trillion gallons of fresh water – more than two times the amount of water used by all of Southern California each year – according to the San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority. The USGS measurements are an unexpected bright spot in an otherwise bleak water forecast for the Southland. Scientists say the Southwest is in the middle of a prolonged drought expected to last for years and major Western reservoirs such as Lake Mead and Lake Powell are approaching the half-empty mark. The expansion of the Valley was discovered by accident using instruments designed to measure earthquake fault movements, said Nancy King, a geophysicist with the USGS’ Southern California Earthquake Hazards Program and lead author of the study. “It is a case of scientific serendipity,” said King. “It means that to study earthquakes we are going to have to learn more about hydrology, to disentangle \ hydrology from faulting.” The study showed the surface motion observed in the Valley due to groundwater recharge temporarily exceeded that caused by the movement of earthquake faults, King said. But she added that the pressure of so much water actually bowing out the surface of the Valley does not necessarily translate to increased earthquake activity. “We examined that possibility and we couldn’t rule it out, but it didn’t seem to increase any of the seismicity,” said King, who was one of 14 co-authors of the study. The swelling of the aquifer is good news, said Bill Patzert, an oceanographer and climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Ca ada Flintridge. “We have some great aquifers in the San Gabriel Valley and we get pretty good recharge if we have a pretty good soaking every year,” said Patzert, noting that the Valley gets 90 percent to 92 percent of its water from the San Gabriel Basin aquifer. But he said the West is in the middle of a natural drought cycle such as the one experienced in the 1950s, and he expects dry years to continue for at least another dozen years. Many scientists believe that global warming could even extend the drought period, Patzert said. This season is already shaping up to be the driest on record, with only about 2.47 inches of rainfall – about 17 percent of normal. The driest season on record in Southern California was 2001-02, when only about 4.42 inches of rain fell. “But we can go very dry for a number of years before we need to start drawing down our aquifers and reservoirs,” said Patzert, adding that the most pressing problem with the current drought can be seen in the surrounding urban forests, where dry conditions have extended the fire season through the winter. There is a reason why the basin’s 2.8 trillion gallons can only provide about 90 percent of the San Gabriel Valley’s water: pollution. About $500 million has been spent so far cleaning up rocket fuel, dry cleaning solvents and other contaminants from the basin’s water. The total cost to clean up the basin is estimated at $1.2 billion over the next 10 to 30 years. “If we can increase our usage we can get up to 100 percent and probably help other parts of the county with our water,” said Gabriel Monares, resource development director for the San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority. “But we have to be able to fund the treatment plants.” fred.ortega@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It was not a hard one.“I remember the last game we [Newcastle] played [against Chelsea]. It was tough. They dominated the whole game against us and we lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.“When you see a team coming to Newcastle and winning 3-0 like they did last season, you know it will be hard to face teams like that.“Now I am on the other side I will be happy to do the same to the other teams.”The former West Ham striker added: “I am also happy to be back in London.
