The Greece international signed a six month deal until the end of the season.Spanish club, Real Zaragoza, announced the signing of Georgios Samaras on a six month contract that will keep him at the club until the end of the season.Since the 2014 World Cup, where Samaras sent Greece to the knockout stages of the competition with his last minute penalty against the Ivory Coast, the Greece international has been troubled by injuries. He signed with West Bromwich, was loaned to Al-Hilal, and then made a move to the United States for Rayo OKC in the North American Soccer League, making 24 appearances and scoring two goals.Samaras will now look to re-find his form and end his career on a strong note. Real Zaragoza currently sit in 12th place of the Spanish Second Division.In the past, Samaras has mentioned that if he does get a call up back to the National Team he will gladly once again wear the ethnosimo.Source: http://www.agonasport.com/agonasport-allnews/20170208-2 (Like us on Facebook, follow us on  Instagram, and Twitter) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgadrian martinez warms up for the game against michiganAdrian Martinez has yet to officially be ruled good to go for this afternoon’s game against the Michigan Wolverines. However, things are looking promising for the four-star freshman quarterback.Martinez, who missed last week’s upset loss against Troy, is recovering from a knee injury he suffered in the season-opening defeat to Colorado. The dual-threat quarterback is expected to be a game-time decision against Michigan this afternoon.Nebraska has listed the starting quarterback as “probable” for this afternoon’s game.Nebraska – Adrian Martinez (knee) is probable today versus Michigan.— FreePlaysPicks (@FreePlaysPicks) September 22, 2018Scott Frost had said earlier this week that a decision on Martinez would be made based on both his physical and mental state. He needs to be ready to go in both areas.“He’s further along,” Frost told reporters. “Again, it isn’t just ‘Is he ready to go?’ It’s ‘Is he ready to go mentally and physically to the point that he can protect himself in the game and make sure he stays healthy?’“He’s really close. We gotta make a final decision.”The Omaha World-Herald doesn’t believe Martinez will play unless he’s 100 percent:Judging by what Frost said, it sure didn’t sound as if Martinez is 100 percent. And the part about protecting himself and making sure he stays healthy? That says it’s still the No. 1 concern.A quarterback can’t make plays and lead larger-than-life drives in front of 111,000 fans and King Khaki and pay attention to whether he’s protecting himself. He has to flow. He has to play by instinct.Even if he’s ready, Nebraska is still a decided underdog in this one. So is it really worth the risk of having Martinez re-injure the knee and miss the rest of the season if he’s “close?” No.Martinez was seen warming up on the field earlier this morning with his Huskers teammates.Quarterback Adrian Martinez and the Huskers enter “The Big House” at Michigan Stadium. pic.twitter.com/DcTlbMp6Uh— Ross Jernstrom WOWT (@RossJernstrom) September 22, 2018Martinez is the big key for Nebraska today, obviously. The Huskers will be forced to start a walk-on under center if Martinez is unable to go.Michigan’s defense is fierce, but the Wolverines have had problems before with dual-threat quarterbacks. Martinez could pose some major problems for Michigan if he’s able to go this afternoon.An official ruling on Martinez likely won’t be made until right at kickoff.

DHT has completed the work and has in relation to this incurred 105 off-hire days during the fourth quarter of 2016, equaling to about 5% of its trading days during the same period. The repair cost has been covered by HHI under its warranty obligation.Furthermore, the firm said that the spot earnings for the fourth quarter of 2016 came in at USD 34,300 per day. DHT has to date booked 32% of its first quarter 2017 VLCC spot days at an average rate of USD 53,000 per day.During the fourth quarter of 2016, the company has under its buy-back program repurchased USD 23 million of its convertible senior notes in the open market at an average price of 90.4%.

first_imgzoom Tsuneishi Shipbuilding is said to be planning to venture into the construction of cruise ships at its Chinese yard based in Zhejiang Province, Nikkei reports.The construction of its first cruise ship is reportedly planned for early 2020.As informed, the cruise ship would be above 200 meters in length and have the capacity for up to 800 passengers, and it would be built for an affiliate of the Tsuinesihi Holdings group.This would be the first step in luring Chinese cruise companies to order ships domestically instead of turning to European yards which have dominated the sector so far.The shipbuilder hopes to secure orders for larger ships with the capacity to accommodate several thousands of passengers.According to Nikkei, in order to prepare for the project, the company is launching activities at the Zhejiang shipyard to boost its infrastructural capacity.The move is being strategically planned as cruise shipping is experiencing an ever-growing popularity in Asia and China in particular.In 2017, 66 cruise ships are being deployed in Asian waters, a 53 percent growth since 2013 when only 43 ships were cruising in Asia, a new report released by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) finds.A total of 3.1 million Asians took cruises in 2016, 55 percent more than in 2015, the report reads.However, the growth in popularity of the emerging market needs to be accompanied by the equivalent development of various other supporting segments of the industry, including construction of cruise ships, which is currently in its infancy in China.Development of local shipbuilding capabilities in the region has been singled out as a strategic investment opportunity and has seen various major industry players tap into the market’s potential.For example, Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has teamed up China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) for the construction of two cruise ships, the first cruise ships to be built in China.The ships, which were announced at the beginning of this year, would be built for cruise liner giant Carnival.They will be built for the Chinese market at the SWS yard, a facility of CSSC Group, with the first delivery expected in 2023.The deal came on the back of a joint venture agreed between Fincantieri and China’s shipbuilding conglomerate CSSC aimed at developing and supporting the growth of the Chinese cruise industry.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

A draft of the policy recommending to enhance registration of e-vehicles up to 25 per cent of the total volume of registered vehicles by 2023, was released by the government in November last year. “The e-vehicle policy will soon come out. We have prepared the best policy. It is going to be a very progressive policy,” Kejriwal told reporters.

We will notify the parking policy,” he said. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court directed the government to notify the parking policy by September 30. The draft parking policy was placed in public domain for suggestions in June this year. The Delhi Maintenance and Management of Parking Places Rules, 2019, envisages area parking plans and gives priority to pedestrians or cyclists followed by mass public transport, emergency vehicles and others. The civic bodies will come up with area-specific plans after the draft policy is notified by the government. The policy envisages constitution of an apex monitoring committee, headed by the transport minister, to review the proper implementation and compliance of these rules.last_img read more

Jonathan Menchella, right, receives his Spirit of Brock medal from Rudi Kroeker, chair of the Board of Trustees, at Convocation today.Jonathan Menchella has some words of advice and encouragement for the next crop of students coming to the University — “get involved and give back to the community.”Menchella received the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences undergraduate Board of Trustees Spirit of Brock Medal at today’s Convocation for the countless hours he has devoted to community outreach and volunteer initiatives in Niagara.The lifelong St. Catharines resident acquired a passion for community service and volunteerism during his years at St. Francis Secondary School. And his enthusiasm has only flourished during his time at Brock.“I feel like it really gives you the university experience by getting involved in extracurricular and volunteer work, in addition to academic study,” he said.The Community Health Sciences graduate has skillfully balanced his in-class performance with his community-based work.Menchella’s been on the Dean’s Honours list for the past four years and is the recipient of the President’s Surgite Award for exemplary leadership and significant contributions to student life at Brock. The list of his community involvement is equally astonishing.He’s volunteered in the emergency department at St. Catharines General Hospital as part of the University’s Med Plus program. He’s a peer-mentor to first-year Brock students and is involved with the local Big Brothers and Big Sisters In-School Mentoring program.He’s also volunteered his time with the Canadian Cancer Society, Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, Family and Children’s Services, Canadian National Institute for the Blind and Kidney Foundation of Canada.In 2009, he founded the Brock chapter of War Child Canada.“I’m very passionate about humanitarian assistance,” he said.He got the idea to establish the chapter after reading an article by Dr. Samantha Nutt, a co-founder of War Child Canada who received an honorary degree from Brock in 2005. The charity helps war-affected children in parts of the world devastated by human conflict.“I was really interested in the cause,” said Menchella. “So I went through all of the administrative work to get it started here at Brock, because it was one of the few universities which didn’t have a chapter.”For his work with War Child, he was chosen by his campus peers as one of the top 100 student leaders in Canada through the Campus Perks website.The Brock chapter, with more than 30 active students, has raised money to help build a school in Darfur. It has also offered relief and support for children in Haiti, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone and the Congo. The chapter is also does outreach to local high school students.This fall, Menchella will continue his academic endeavours as he takes the next step on his career path to becoming a family physician. He will begin graduate studies in physiology at the University of Toronto.Looking back on his time at Brock, Menchella said, “It’s been a really great experience.”Related stories:• More than 3,000 will graduate this week | The Brock News• Convocation ceremonies streamed live | The Brock News read more

There will also be restrictions on which cups can be used; the mug needs to be clean and undamaged, have a suitable fitting lid and fit under the water spout of the trolley without the requirement to tilt the cup.Passengers have faced difficulties on South Western trains as they try to minimise their carbon footprint by bringing a reusable cup.One passenger, Katie Dancey-Downs, said she witnessed a farcical scene when she asked for her keep cup to be filled.She explained: “You try to reduce your environmental footprint, and then some businesses just make it so difficult. Just used my reusable coffee cup on @SW_Railway and they filled the thing up by transferring water via a single use plastic cup. I despair. #SouthWesternRailway #plasticwaste.”Another, Katie Lidster, added: “I was told last time my cup was too big. I bought a smaller cup but refused due to health and safety rules. Surprised you (or external company) don’t have a commitment to helping reduce unnecessary waste. I’ll bring a flask next time!” The company is also looking into allowing passengers to use their own cups on board.A spokesperson added that in order for recyclable cups to be used, staff will have to be health and safety trained so they can fill them without being scalded by hot water. A rail company has been criticised after Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall was banned from being served tea in his keep cup – and forced to use a single-use plastic cup – because of health and safety regulations.South Western Rail is one of the only train companies in the UK which does not let passengers use their own cups, so if they want to buy a cup of tea or coffee on board, they have to use single-use plastic.Other operators, including LNER,Virgin Trains and Great Western Railway, do let customers use reusable mugs.The celebrity chef spoke out against the ban, tweeting: “Rail Gourmet on @SW_Railway just refused to make me a cup of tea in my keep cup – saying it’s company policy to use the cups provided. I’ve asked on many other trains (inc Great Western and Cross Country) and this is the first time I’ve been refused. ☹️ #WasteNot #WaronWaste”–– ADVERTISEMENT ––A spokesperson for the company replied that this was due to the “safety aspect”, adding: “the water dispenser doesn’t have an adjustable spout, thus some cups don’t fit safely.”Fearnley-Whittingstall responded: “Surely if other trainlines can do it, so can you.”The rail operator confirmed their cups are non-recyclable, adding they hope to sell compostable cups in the future.

Young 22 year-old player of RK Dubrava Zagreb, who has been one of the best players of Croatian Premier League recently, was recommended to TATRAN by Croatian coach Slavko Goluza. Another new player, who signed a 3-year contract for TATRAN from season 2017/2018 even before, is Croatian line player Ante Babic.Highly rated Croatian left-handed handball player, who is considered to be “new Dolenec”, was the member of successful Croatian U17, U19 and U21 national teams with 25 international appearances. In 2013 he was a member of Croatian U19 national team who won the silver medal at the Men´s Youth World Handball Championships in Hungary.Bruno Butorac (190 cm / 92 kg) was born on 1 October 1994 in Zagreb, Croatia. At first he started to play for RK Pavleki at his local school. After that he played for RK Medvescak Zagreb for 2 years. Then he moved to PPD Zagreb, where he played for 4 years. In 2012/2013 season he debuted in the Champions League with PPD Zagreb.Bruno Butorac, right back of RK Dubrava Zagreb, new signing of TATRAN Presov: “It is a big honour for me to join TATRAN Presov.

first_imgDISCUSSIONS ARE BEING held at Cabinet level over the broadening of the means testing arrangements for student grants but there are indications of tensions between the coalition’s two parties.Labour TDs would like to see the government follow through with a Budget 2012 decision which would include the value of capital assets and savings in the means test.“This makes perfect sense,” Aodhán Ó Ríordáin told Morning Ireland. “It is one of the only government schemes which doesn’t take account of the capital value of savings or assets. It led to a situation where an individual who had €270,000 in his bank account but was still eligible.”The Dublin deputy said the €336 million spend on supporting students had to be more targeted at those who do not have assets or a tradition of education in their homes.“They should not be fishing out of the same pond as those who have,” he continued. “There are far too many eligible students. This is about having a fair system.”The Department of Education told TheJournal.ie that the broadening of the system is “an issue of equity and fairness”.“At a time of diminishing resources we need to ensure that the valuable student grant system is aimed at those who need it most. And equally, those who can afford to pay to go to third level do.”However, the spokesperson added that there would be no speculation about what will happen ahead of a Cabinet decision.Children from households with an income below €39,875 qualify for a full grant and maintenance. It is understood that assets worth more than €750,000 will be included in the future means tests.Although the Department said the broadening of means testing “is not aimed at a particular section of the community”, farmers have reacted negatively to the proposed changes.Fine Gael TD John Deasy told RTÉ News that income cannot be imputed from assets, adding there would be trouble if Labour pursues the issue.UCD students vote to leave national students’ unionlast_img read more

first_imgThere have been a number of so-called smartwatches either trying to or actually making it to market, but they all have one thing in common: they are flat. There’s nothing wrong with a flat-fronted watch display, but it does mean a trade-off has to be made between the size of the display and the watch being too bulky on your wrist.Apparently, Apple is looking to rectify this problem by applying its cutting-edge glass manufacturing knowledge to the watch form factor and developing an iWatch device.The New York Times has been told that Apple is experimenting with a curved glass smartwatch. As with all of Apple’s mobile devices, the watch would run a version of iOS and give users access to Apple’s services. How limited that access would be is something on Apple can decide, but the watch could form the equivalent of an iPhone, or be limited to the functionality of a cloud-connected iPod.This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Apple working on a smartwatch. In December last year there was a rumor Apple and Intel were collaborating on a watch with a 1.5-inch OLED display and a launch date before the middle of this year. We’ve also seen the iPod nano turned into a watch, demonstrating that there is the desire to have such an Apple-branded device.Of course, Apple would only release such a device if it met the company’s strict design standards. At the same time, they wouldn’t want a watch drawing sales away from other devices. So it seems unlikely you’d get an Apple smartwatch that acted as a phone without being linked to the iPhone in your pocket.In fact, doesn’t that seem like a more Apple thing to do? Use a smartwatch as the gateway device to your other Apple gadgets tucked safely away in a pocket or bag? It would certainly give you an excuse to buy more, rather than alternative Apple products.[Image credit: shark graphic]last_img read more

first_imgA continuing bloodbath of cryptocurrencies has its apparent origin in the unexpected support for blockchain-based currencies from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), some observers feel.Cryptocurrencies are plummeting across the board. Bitcoin on Tuesday fell 7 per cent to $4,387, having lost almost a third of its value in a week.The premier blockchain currency is trading below $5,000 for the first time in 13 months, skimming the lowest level since October last year.The plunge is from the all-time high of $19,511 that it hit in last December, before sliding to $13,500 at the start of this year.”The crypto bloodbath continues,” said Neil Wilson, the chief market analyst at Markets.com told The Guardian. “Things look like they only get worse from here. Where is the incentive to buy? It does rather look like the bottom is coming out of this market.”One of the immediate causes of the crash is the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s action against two cryptocurrency startups that staged initial coin offerings, or ICOs, selling cryptocurrency tokens to the public, according to some media reports. Airfox and Paragon Coin agreed to pay civil penalties for conducting token sales last year without registering them as securities offerings.Digital currency systemThe development sparked warnings from some central bankers and JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon who declared in September 2017 that bitcoin was a fraud that would ultimately blow up.But IMF chief Christine Lagarde’s call for central banks to look into issuing sovereign cryptocurrencies is making investors wary of private blockchain currencies. Speaking at the Singapore Fintech Festival, Lagarde sought to make a case for governments to support digital currencies as private players do not have the credibility to offer cryptocurrency services.She wanted national governments to step in to prevent the digital currency systems from becoming a haven for fraudsters and money launderers.Sweden’s central bank has run some tests and the IMF has credited Canada, China and Uruguay as also going ahead with plans to provide a digital currency, observers say.Lagarde said central banks could take over the processing of transactions while private-players could continue to providers innovative services to customers.last_img read more

The process is underway,” said Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, while talking to newsmen at AL president’s Dhanmondi office in Dhaka.Priya Saha, one of the organising secretaries of Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad, was seen telling US president Donald Trump, among other things, that 37 million Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people have been disappeared from Bangladesh. She also told president Trump that her land has been grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists and sought his help so that Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people can live in Bangladesh.The Bangladesh government on Saturday said it appears that there was an ulterior motive behind Priya Saha’s “absolutely false and concocted” stories that were targeted to malign Bangladesh.”Bangladesh is a beacon of religious freedom and communal harmony, where people of all faiths have been living in peace for ages,” said the foreign ministry, strongly protesting all the “blatant lies” Priya Saha told US president Donald Trump.The government also condemned her remarks in the strongest possible terms.Bangladesh national Priya Saha took part in the Second Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom held at the US Department of State in Washington, DC on 16-18 July.Bangladesh foreign minister AK Abdul Momen also attended the meeting.Delegates from 106 countries, including about 40 foreign ministers, took part in the meeting at the invitation of Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State.last_img read more
