Wanyama to stay put at Celtic for now

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, England, January 31- Victor Wanyama has revealed he could leave Celtic in the summer, but the Manchester United target insists he will finish the season in Scotland.The 21-year-old’s impressive form has significantly contributed to Celtic’s run to the Champions League knockout stages and attracted the attention of Sir Alex Ferguson. Any moves to sign the Harambee Stars midfielder before the January transfer deadline closes, however, are highly unlikely to succeed.“I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic,” Wanyama told the Daily Record.“We are playing well and our Champions League dream is on right now, so I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus.“A lot has been said about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic.‘Then, from that point, the doors can be open for a move.’– DailyMailThe long-serving Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs could both be set to retire in the summer, meaning one of Ferguson’s greatest priority is likely to be a quality central midfielder.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Alberta in ‘crisis’ over low oil price: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

first_img“Currently, the federal government doesn’t have a plan to address the $80 million that’s coming out?” Lalli asked Trudeau in a question-and-answer session.“You think there’s a super-simple easy answer and there’s not. There’s a multifaceted complex issue and as much as there is a tendency out there in the world to give really simple answers to really complex questions, unfortunately the world doesn’t work like that,” Trudeau replied.“We need to make sure that we’re moving forward in the right way and that is where actually listening to the experts is sort of the best way to make policy.”Trudeau said the federal government is doing what it can to get the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built, which would triple its capacity to carry oil to tankers on the west coast.Advertisement The federal government bought Trans Mountain and its expansion project for $4.5 billion last summer only to have the Federal Court of Appeal strike down its approval, citing inadequate Indigenous consultation and failure to consider impacts on marine environment.Trudeau said the sector should benefit from his government’s announcement Wednesday that companies will be able to immediately write off capital investments.“The accelerated capital cost allowance doesn’t matter with differentials where they are because nobody’s going to spend any money,” said Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. executive vice-chairman Steve Laut following an energy-boss roundtable with the prime minister.Laut said Trudeau seemed to appreciate how dire the situation is and was receptive to ideas. But Laut said he’s skeptical a federal investment in crude-by-rail, as the Alberta government has urged, would deliver swift relief.“I don’t know what more the federal governments can do that companies ourselves can’t do,” Laut said. “Getting (rail) cars is tough to do. It takes time to build these things.”Advertisement Alex Pourbaix, CEO of Cenovus Energy Inc., agreed Ottawa’s ability to help narrow the price gap is limited.“I think the issue that we’ve all been debating is more of a provincial issue,” he said. “It’s very tough for the federal government to solve that one for us.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)center_img CALGARY, A.B. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Alberta is in a crisis as the province’s oil is being sold at a discount of about $45 a barrel, but he and some oil company bosses agree there are no easy fixes Ottawa can offer.“There is no question that folks in Alberta, folks here in Calgary, are living through extremely difficult times. This is very much a crisis,” Trudeau said Thursday following an affordable housing announcement.“When you have a price differential that’s up around $42, $50 even, that’s a massive challenge to local industry, to the livelihood of a lot of Albertans. I hear that very, very clearly.”- Advertisement -Premier Rachel Notley has said the price gap between Canadian and U.S. crude is costing the Canadian economy $80 million a day.Hundreds of pro-oil protesters shut down part of the street outside the hotel where Trudeau addressed the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.Inside, chamber CEO Sandip Lalli grilled Trudeau on what Ottawa intends to do, including possibly investing in moving crude on trains as a stop-gap measure as new market-opening pipelines remain in limbo.Advertisementlast_img read more

Liverpool can’t always rely on Gerrard, insists Rodgers

first_imgBrendan Rodgers has told the Liverpool squad to step up in the absence of club captain Steven Gerrard after the insipid Reds played out a frustrating 0-0 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.With their must-win Champions League clash against Basel up next at Anfield, followed by a trip to face old foes Manchester United, Rodgers again decided to rest Gerrard who was dropped to the bench.The former England skipper was eventually introduced with 23 minutes left but could not inspire his side to victory, and Rodgers admits it should not always be up to Liverpool’s ‘Captain Fantastic’ to lift the side.“We can’t always rely on Stevie,” said the Reds boss.“His talent is world-class but that contribution has to come around the team.“It can’t be up to him every single game to be the catalyst.“It is very hard to replace that quality but going forward that is something of course we will need.“He was excellent when he came on and of course he plays on Tuesday.“He still has that talent, he has world-class ability and it is me looking to manage that.“We have a big month. Until the new year there are big games and the management of Steven is fine, there is no problem with that.” 1 Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard last_img read more

‘We have a top-class manager now’ – Newcastle star hails Rafa Benitez effect

first_imgDaryl Janmaat says Rafa Benitez has had a ‘positive effect’ on the Newcastle squad and is convinced the Spaniard will lead the club to safety.Benitez has picked up just a point from his first two games at the helm to leave the Magpies second from bottom in the Premier League, three points adrift of survival.But Janmaat is convinced the former Liverpool and Real Madrid boss will soon spark a turnaround in fortunes.The Holland international said: “We have a top-class manager now. We have to believe he can get us to stay in the Premier League.“He has had a positive effect. It has been organised, the way we played at Leicester and against Sunderland. We have to keep doing that and looking up.“We feel we can stay in the Premier League, but know we need more wins. We hope and we have the confidence. We must still believe and go out looking to get the job done. I think we can do it.”Newcastle emerged from the clash with Sunderland last time out with a battling 1-1 draw after Benitez’s reign had begun with a narrow defeat at Leicester, although a point in the derby was two fewer than the tally for which they had hoped.However, the manner in which the draw was secured was commendable as they fought back from a poor start to equalise through Aleksandar Mitrovic’s late header.Janmaat, who was by that point back in the dressing room nursing a knee problem, said: “I think it can be a turning point for the team. It was a really well-worked goal.“I was injured, so I watched from inside, but it was a really good header.” 1 Rafa Benitez roars out orders on the Newcastle touchline last_img read more

Aunt still faces trial in girl’s death

first_imgPASADENA – A judge Wednesday denied a motion to dismiss the case against an Alhambra woman, who, with her husband, is accused of the murder of her 2-year-old grandniece, Sarah Angelina Chavez. Frances Abundis, 36, and her husband, Armando Abundis Sr., 33, are charged with murder, child abuse and assault on a child resulting in death. The toddler was found dead in the couple’s home Oct. 11 in the 1700 block of South Second Street in Alhambra after a frantic 9-1-1 call from Frances Abundis. Last month, Pasadena Superior Court Judge Teri Schwartz reduced the aunt’s bail to $1million. Armando Abundis is being held on $2.2 million ba il. Frances Abundis’ defense attorney Alex Kessel asked Wednesday that the case against his client be dismissed due to what he said was a violation of her right to a speedy trial. This is the sixth or seventh time Kessel has attempted to have the case against his client dismissed, he said. In early June, Schwartz denied Kessel’s motion to separate the couple’s cases.

Some involve doughnuts.In a tape recording of the couple arguing during their December preliminary hearing, Frances Abundis can be heard pleading wi th her husband to tell her what happened to Sarah, attorneys have said. A medical examiner testified during the preliminary hearing that Sarah died from blunt- force trauma to the abdomen, most likely caused by an adult. Additionally, a cellmate of Armando Abundis’ told Alhambra police that Armando Abundis confessed to inflicting the fatal blow to the child with his foot, Kessel said in a June 24 hearing. “Obviously, I’m upset because my client is innocent and would like to prove her innocence to a jury,” Kessel said after the hearing Wednesday. “Unfortunately, she’s attached to the co-defendant.” Armando Abundis is now on his fourth attorney, which has slowed down the process, Kessel noted.

Mozilla’s New CEO Talks DataPortability and the Future of Firefox

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Sean Ammirati posted a 20 minute podcast interview and transcript with new Mozilla CEO John Lilly tonight and Lilly has some interesting things to share about the future of the organization. Data Portability, the forthcoming version of Firefox (Firefox 3, available in beta now), mobile Firefox and the Mozilla Weave “cloud computing for the browser” project are among the topics the two discuss.A couple of excerpts are below but check out the full audio and transcript at ReadWriteTalk. Sean has an amazing knack for scoring interviews with some of the most interesting people in the industry, the show is definitely worth a subscription.On the next version of FirefoxJohn Lilly: Firefox 3 is the killer browser. And I think I’ve been using the Beta since Beta 1 and Beta 2 is even better. Even in the Beta, we’ve surpassed the quality of Firefox 2. So I already encouraged my mom and my grandmother to update their Firefox 3 Beta 2. I thinks it’s a killer product. It holds up in a lot of new areas.On Data PortabilitySean Ammirati: The Weave project is interesting. And it’s something that we’ve covered a lot at Read/Write Web or a couple of times at least. How does that relate in your mind to the DataPortability.org stuff?John Lilly: Oh yes, that’s a good question. Yes we’ve talked about that this week. So I suspect that we’ll start to participate in DataPortability.org.They’ve got to start doing something sooner or later. So like doing the actual work there is going to be the key. Of course OAUTH and that kind of stuff we’ve starting to experiments with. That stuff will be very important for Weave. So I suspect we will start to participate in dataportability.org, but we haven’t yet.Listen to their conversation, read the transcript and find relevant links at tonight’s installation of ReadWriteTalk.center_img Tags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
