Chastened Chelsea sign Drinkwater, Zappacosta

first_img“We are very pleased to be able to bring him to the club and believe he will become an important member of the squad.”Tempering Chelsea’s satisfaction at the moves for Drinkwater and Zappacosta was the knowledge that several targets eluded them on deadline day.England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rejected their approach in favour of joining Liverpool from Arsenal and Spanish striker Fernando Llorente elected to move to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur from Swansea City.In a further twist, 23-year-old England midfielder Ross Barkley changed his mind after undergoing a medical at Chelsea and decided to stay at Everton.“The two clubs agreed a deal of £35 million and I think personal terms were agreed,” Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri told Sky Sports News.“After the medical we heard from Paul Martin, Ross Barkley’s agent, that he had changed his mind and wanted to reconsider his position in the January window.“He’s currently injured so technically he will be with us. He is under contract for another year. It’s a big surprise, but that’s football.”Chelsea had previously completed moves for goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Spain striker Alvaro Morata, who joined from Real Madrid in a club-record £58 million deal. Share on: WhatsApp Zappacosta, 25, has signed a four-year deal and is believed to have set Chelsea back around £23 million.He has been capped four times by Italy and played under Conte during his time as national coach.“Davide is a player of international calibre who Antonio Conte knows well and we have been aware of for some time,” said Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo.center_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | Premier League champions Chelsea completed a challenging transfer window on Friday by bringing in England midfielder Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City and Italy right-back Davide Zappacosta from Torino.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte saw moves for several targets fail to come off over the course of the transfer window, but has managed to boost his squad ahead of his side’s Champions League campaign.Drinkwater, 27, has signed a five-year contract in a deal reported to have cost Chelsea £35 million ($45.1 million, 37.9 million euros), which was announced two and a half hours after Thursday’s transfer deadline passed.“I’m delighted to be a Chelsea player and can’t wait to get started,” Drinkwater told the Chelsea website.“It has been a long journey to get here, but I am very happy and am looking forward to helping the club win more trophies.”The transfer reunites Drinkwater with N’Golo Kante, with whom he formed the all-action central midfield partnership that helped Leicester to their fairytale Premier League triumph in 2016.last_img read more

Unopposed Ceferin re-elected as UEFA president

Unopposed Ceferin re-elected as UEFA president

first_imgThe Frenchman is still suspended until October this year, when he will complete a four-year ban from all football-related activities following the corruption scandal that also brought down then-FIFA chief Sepp Blatter.Ceferin defended his record since taking over with his most notable achievement being the introduction of term limits for UEFA presidents, to a maximum of three four-year stints.“Limited terms of office, the publication of salaries, the creation of a Compensation Committee and the inclusion of independent members in a reinforced Governance and Compliance Committee are just a few of the common-sense reforms we have introduced,” he said.“This is only the start. We will be doing more in this area because there remain weaknesses in our system.“When crisis hits, it is not the time to suddenly forsake everything that has gone before. I am not the president of a ‘new UEFA’. I am the president of UEFA, a UEFA that can be proud of its past and confident about the future.”Ceferin promised to work closely with world football governing body FIFA.“With our unity restored, we will be a source of constructive ideas for FIFA, rather than one of opposition. And we expect the same attitude from FIFA.”The UEFA chief also promised to work to bring the 2030 FIFA World Cup back to Europe. FILE PHOTO: UEFA president Aleksander CeferinRome, Italy | AFP | UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin was on Thursday re-elected for a four-year term as head of European football’s governing body by acclamation. The 51-year-old Slovenian lawyer was the only candidate going forward for election at the UEFA Congress in Rome.Ceferin took over two and a half years ago after the corruption scandal that toppled his predecessor, Frenchman Michel Platini.“I am honoured,” said Ceferin, thanking members of UEFA’s 55 member associations for re-electing him, saying he was taking over with “fewer doubts and less scepticism than back then”.“The most dangerous thing we can do is rest on our laurels and bask in our current situation,” he continued.“So, what’s going to happen now? That is the question many people were asking when I was elected two and a half years ago,” said Ceferin.“It was a legitimate and pertinent question. A question that I asked myself, to be totally honest with you. It was a bit of a jump into the unknown.“At that time, football, at both world and European levels, was being rocked by the most serious governance crisis in its history and yet you decided to entrust the keys to the UEFA house to a virtual unknown.”Previously the head of the Slovenian Football Federation, Ceferin’s presidency has so far been marked by his discretion and a less charismatic approach than that of Platini.center_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Firm can’t say no to feds

Firm can’t say no to feds

first_img EPA spokesman Francisco Aracute said the agency could issue an administrative order if necessary. Magnuson declined to discuss the agency’s strategy in the case, but said generally the agency keeps looking for a mutual agreement with property owners even after taking initial steps to compel cooperation. Mitguard, project manager for the EPA’s Superfund, said the agency also could obtain a search warrant, and company representatives have been told of this possibility. Like Magnuson, however, he said the regulators prefer to honor private property rights and obtain a good-faith agreement. Snyder said talks are ongoing and he expects an agreement will be reached. The EPA gained access to the site in 2004 but continued protracted negotiations with the company did not drill test wells. EPA representatives planned to visit the site Monday to begin drilling seven test wells to a depth of 80 to 100 feet to check for perchlorate. Perchlorate is a byproduct of rocket fuel that has been associated with thyroid disorders. Water agencies have said their test results show the chemicals have not contaminated local public water sources.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 The law that backs up the order is the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act passed by Congress in 1980, also called Superfund law. It empowers the federal government to intervene when the public health or environment could be harmed by potentially hazardous substances. National Technical Systems tests products and components for aerospace, telecommunications and military applications. “What the government is requesting is unfettered access to the site for three days,” Bob Snyder, an attorney for the company, said Monday. “We’ve offered ways for them to come on and not be as intrusive. The client’s as interested in finding out the results – perhaps more so – as the EPA, but there has to be some reason about how they reach this.” Snyder said the company performs confidential and sometimes classified work and needs what he called reasonable business control of its property. Snyder said the company’s requests for a list of the type of equipment that would be brought on site and for information on outside contractors had not been honored. It would be difficult for the company to halt operations for three consecutive days, not including a weekend, he said. After the testers leave, workers at the secured facility would need to recalibrate the sensitive equipment, he added. SANTA CLARITA – If a good-faith agreement cannot be worked out, the Environmental Protection Agency could rely on a legal smorgasbord of options to compel a local defense contractor to allow agency representatives on site to test for contaminants. Agency officials are looking at their options after saying that National Technical Systems or NTS reneged last week on a plan that would have allowed the EPA to gain access to the property Monday to begin drilling wells. The test wells would determine if perchlorate and other contaminants have leached from the site to the groundwater, said Matt Mitguard, project manager for the EPA’s Superfund. The agency’s first tack is to hammer out an agreement with the property owner allowing access to the site for testing. If that fails, the agency may issue an administrative order. “Usually, companies comply with an order,” said Janet Magnuson, an attorney for the EPA. “Sometimes we have to seek assistance from the Department of Justice to enforce the order in court.” last_img read more

Join a Savings Challenge

Join a Savings Challenge

first_imgBy Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, [email protected] Saves Week and Military Saves Week are February 27 to March 4 so now is a good time to discuss savings strategies with service members. What is the best way to “find” money to save? There is no one right answer. Automatic payroll deductions work well for many people. For example, they have deposits into a credit union savings account or the Thrift Savings Plan automatically taken out of their paycheck, before they can spend it. Other people do well by saving loose change in a jar and depositing it periodically in a savings account as the jar fills up.Find more info at http://militarysaves.org/A third way to save money is to complete a savings challenge that gradually ramps up (or down) weekly deposits. While many people start these challenges during the first full week of January, as a New Year’s resolution, they can be started at any time. For example, another option is to make a “catch up deposit,” perhaps using tax refund money, in February or March and then complete a calendar year challenge from that point forward until the end of December.Below is a description of six different savings challenges and how they operate:The 52-Week Money Challenge– This challenge begins with a $1 deposit during Week #1. The weekly deposit rises by $1 per week and reaches $52 during the final week of the Challenge (Week #52), with total savings of $1,378. Some people have suggested doing the 52-Week Money Challenge in reverse if people have more money in January (e.g., from holiday gifts or a year-end bonus at work) than they do in December, which tends to be a very expensive month for many people with holiday gifts and travel. The “reverse challenge” strategy is also very motivating. After five weeks, you already have $250 saved. A third way to do the 52-Week Money Challenge is to pick an amount each week that you can afford (e.g., $25 one week and $16 the next) and complete the challenge in any order. Tracking forms are available athttp://walton.ifas.ufl.edu/fcs/files/2014/01/52-Week-Money-Challenge.pdfhttps://www.affinityplus.org/Portals/0/Documents/Blog/52Week.pdfhttps://www.lgfcu.org/sites/default/files/docs/52week_challenge.pdfThe 365-Day Penny Challenge- With this challenge, people make a daily savings deposit and increase their deposit by a penny a day. At the end of a year, they have $667.95 of savings. A description and tracking form are available at http://funhappyhome.com/2016/01/365-day-penny-saving-challenge-save-667-in-one-year/. Like the 52-Week Money Challenge, the 365-Day Penny Challenge can be done forward, backward, or in any order that works for savers.The 52-Week Youth Money Challenge– This challenge is for parents to use to encourage their children to save. See http://www.slideshare.net/BarbaraONeill/52-week-money-challenge-for-youth0315. Weekly savings deposits are 10 weeks each of $1, $2, $3, $4, and $5, resulting in $150 of savings. Week #51 is an optional $25 from birthday gifts and Week #52 is an optional $25 from holiday gifts ($200 total). There is also an option for parents to provide a 50% ($100) match of their child’s savings, resulting in total annual savings of $300.The 15-Week Money Challenge– This challenge is for high school and college students and adults with short-term financial goals. See http://www.slideshare.net/BarbaraONeill/15-week-college-student-money-challenge0715. The Basic Challenge includes five weeks of $10 savings, five weeks of $20 savings, and five weeks of $30 savings, resulting in a total accumulation of $300. The “Hard Core” Challenge starts with a $10 weekly deposit and ramps up the savings deposit by $5 per week for a final deposit of $80, resulting in a total accumulation of $675.The $2,500 Savings Challenge- This challenge begins with a $2 deposit during Week #1. The weekly deposit rises by $2 per week and reaches a high of $98. There are two weeks “off” at a saver’s discretion and a $50 deposit is made during the final week of the Challenge (Week #50), with total savings of $2,500. Like the 52-Week Money Challenge and the 365-Day Penny Challenge, the $2,500 Savings Challenge can be done forward, backward, or in any order that works for individual savers. See http://www.slideshare.net/BarbaraONeill/50-week-2500-savings-challengeThe 30-Day $100 Savings Challenge– This challenge is for small dollar amounts andshort-term financial goals. The challenge format is saving $1 for five days, $2 for five days, $3 for five days, $4 for five days, and $5 for ten days, resulting in $100 of savings on Day #30: http://www.slideshare.net/BarbaraONeill/30-day-100-savings-challenge-0416. Like several other challenges, deposits can be made in any order throughout the month.  For example, some people may have more money to save at the beginning of a month than the end.last_img read more

Abhishek Banerjee sets target of over 250 seats for Trinamool in 2021 poll

Abhishek Banerjee sets target of over 250 seats for Trinamool in 2021 poll

first_imgSenior Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader and MP Abhishek Banerjee on Wednesday set a target of winning 250 plus seats in the next Legislative Assembly poll. Abhishek, who heads the youth wing of the TMC and is nephew of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said the BJP’s thinking of winning Bengal has no basis.“In the next assembly poll in 2021, we should fight to win 250 plus seats in the state. The BJP thinks it can win Bengal. But they are wrong. If our party supremo Mamata Banerjee permits, we would score 10 goals against BJP everyday and they won’t stand a chance against us,” Mr. Abhishek said while addressing TMC’s students wing-Trinamool Chatra Parishad- foundation day rally here. The total strength of the West Bengal assembly is 294. They (BJP) has emptied the coffers of central government and RBI and are lecturing others on financial issues, he said. While referring to Reserve Bank of India (RBI)’s decision to give Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the Centre, Abhishek said the reserve money of the central bank has also been exhausted due to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. BJP’s West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh, while reacting to Abhishek’s claim, said he is living in fool’s paradise.“He is living in fool’s paradise if he thinks that TMC will win 250 seats. The TMC would find it tough to get even 30 seats and acquire main opposition party status,” Ghosh said. The BJP, in the general election this year, bagged 18 of the 42 seats in the state, four less than the ruling TMC.The TMC’s tally came down from 34 in 2014 to 22 seats. In the last few years, the saffron party has made deep inroads in Bengal and emerged as the main challenger to the ruling TMC by pushing the Congress and the Left Front to distant third and fourth positions respectively. It’s leaders are now asserting that their next target was to unseat Mamata Banerjee in the 2021 assembly elections.last_img read more
