Mourinho charged by English FA

first_imgLONDON (AP):Chelsea manager JosÈ Mourinho was charged by England’s Football Association yesterday for accusing Premier League referees of being biased against his team hours after he was given public backing by the club following its disappointing start to the season.Speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Southampton at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho said referees “are afraid to give decisions for Chelsea”.Imply biasThe FA said in a statement that Mourinho’s remarks constitute improper conduct as they imply bias and bring the game into disrepute. Mourinho has until Thursday to respond to the charge.Earlier, Chelsea took the unusual step of publicly endorsing Mourinho, with the team languishing in 16th place in the 20-team Premier League after winning two of their first eight games. Chelsea have also lost one of their first two group games in the Champions League.”The club wants to make it clear that Jose continues to have our full support,” a Chelsea statement read. “As Jose has said himself, results have not been good enough, and the team’s performances must improve.”However, we believe that we have the right manager to turn this season around and that he has the squad with which to do it.”On Sunday, Liverpool fired manager Brendan Rodgers and Dick Advocaat resigned as Sunderland manager.- APlast_img read more

Two women, toddler released

first_imgKaieteur Park mining clampdown…18 still in custodyBy Lakhram BhagiratCarol Williams and Sabrina D’Santos, along with two-year-old Naziel Williams, residents of Chenapau, in Region Eight, who had been detained at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters at Eve Leary during the clampdown on illegal mining in the Kaieteur National Park, were released on Monday night.At about noon last Saturday, officers from the Guyana Police Force, the Guyana Defence Force and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) rounded up some 21 persons — 18 adult males, two females and a two-year-old child — who allegedly were mining in the Kaieteur National Park, a designated no-mining zone that is protected under the Laws of Guyana. They were taken into custody, and were forced to spend Saturday night in the backdam before being brought out to Georgetown on Sunday evening.Carol Williams with her son Naziel and Sabrina D’Santos after being released by CID officersThe two females and the toddler were released from police custody at about 18:30h on Monday, but the 18 males were still detained up to press time. They are being represented by Attorney-at-Law Mark Conway.“They catch we when we did coming out of the backdam. They reach we on the line and they make we go back till near the backdam, and we had to spend whole afternoon, whole night there on Saturday. They said that we were in the (Kaieteur National) Park, but we were out of the Park,” D’Santos related.She said the detainees were brought to Georgetown in the same clothes they were wearing when detained, and none of them has had a shower since Saturday last.Dredge owner Susan RahamanThese women each cook for a mining camp, and both vehemently deny that they were mining in the Park. Williams was released into the custody of the Amerindian Peoples Association (APA) Chairperson Laura George on Sunday night because she had her toddler son with her.Legal OperationsDredge owner Susan Rahaman has told the Guyana Times that she legally operates two dredges in the area, and that the officers had gone into the backdam and brought out seven of her employees, including her son, George D’Abreau.“We just have rumours coming out that the people that gone in there — the police and soldiers — break down camps, break up all the engines, (and) throw them overboard in the water. We are waiting on these people to get the full details on what really transpired,” Rahaman related.She added that concerned persons are restricted from communicating with those in custody, and accordingly do not know what really had transpired. Rahaman said that following the recent flooding in the area, a lot of the mining operations were halted because they had been washed away; and no person had been engaged in mining when the detainees were ambushed by the joint operation on Saturday.She revealed that persons had been in the process of moving their equipment when they encountered the officers and were arrested.Michael Mc Garrell leaving the CID headquartersAPA representative Michael Mc Garrell has said the areas in which the persons were held were all legal operations. He maintains that the persons held were not mining, but were in the process of packing up camp.“If you check records, you will see that there are claims — river claims and concessions in Echerak area — and these would have been given by the GGMC; and there are mining claims where these people were working…Where the miners were, they have documentation to prove that they were legally there; unless the documents that GGMC would have provided to them are not in keeping with the laws,” Mc Garrell said.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman has said it has been recommended to the National Protected Areas Commission (PAC) that no more fuel must be flown to the Kaieteur National Park for onward transport to Menzies Landing, located on the left bank of the Potaro River. He explained that this move is designed to stifle illegal mining in the area.However, PAC Chairman Denise Fraser has promised that, before any definitive step is taken, consultations would be had in this regard.Guyana Geology and Mines Commission officers leaving CID Headquarters, Eve Leary on Monday eveningMc Garrell has, however, said that if Government were to implement this decision, severe backlash would follow. “So to say that (by) cutting off fuel they would choke the miners….I am going to wait and see what the backlash to that is going to be. Because they have several other miners in the Echerak area, as I said, who depend on the airstrip at Kaieteur to receive their fuel.”Misleading informationThe APA representative has also said the information Government is being provided with is inaccurate and misrepresents the facts. “I also saw that they found fifteen excavators up there…Now, that is impossible; Kaieteur does not have even one excavator. The reason for this is that the terrain to get there is difficult, and to get an excavator into Kaieteur would require some sort of big helicopter. So I think a lot of information that is being spread is not true, and it needs to be cleared up, because it makes it seem as though these people are involved in a lot of heavy mining, and this is not true,” Mc Garrell clarified.Dredge owner Rahaman has also disputed claims of excavators being used in the area. She said the officers may have mistaken spades for excavators, since the dominant method of operation in the area involves the use of spades. She added that the Natural Resources Ministry and GGMC have no ground officer to feed them their information, hence they are playing the “assumption game”.She noted that many of the detainees are simple pork-knockers, and some were even engaged in fishing when they were apprehended and accused of illegally mining. Rahaman added that the Government, through its relevant channels, is yet to inform residents of the area what really was the reason behind the clampdown, since no one was mining in the Kaieteur National Park.When contacted, GGMC Commissioner Newell Dennison said he had no comment on the incident, and noted that he would not reveal any additional information.Human rights riolationMore than 100 residents of Chenapau village have held widespread demonstrations, calling for the release of those in custody and citing various human rights violations. A relative of one of the men in custody told the Guyana Times that his cousin had not been afforded the opportunity to have a shower since being detained on Saturday.“You find that the conditions (under which) these people are being kept (is) as though they are robbers or murderers or thieves. (They have been) sitting on the floor from probably since yesterday to this time… The conditions are deplorable,” the man lamented.He added that the persons were taken into custody with their soiled clothing, and are being forced to remain in them until they are either charged or released.“If you see the conditions that they bring them down in….with the same bush clothing, nothing else. They were not able to shower or brush their teeth or anything else. That is horrible, because we have women in there, too. It is like they are not humans,” Rahaman lamented.Mc Garrell said they are unaware what next step the investigations would take, but they are hopeful that the other detainees would be released. “They have not been able to shower since they were held. We are trying to see what we can do for them in terms of bringing toiletries and other supplies, so that they can be more comfortable and clean,” he added.Chenapau Toshao Edward Mc Garrell has said he is appalled at the treatment meted out to those in custody. He noted that his villagers are being treated as though they are prisoners of war, since they were being escorted by soldiers armed with AK-47 assault rifles.last_img read more

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP West Virginia runs over Maryland

first_imgThe 5-foot-8 Devine served as Slaton’s setup man. Early in the third quarter, Devine ran 31 yards to the Maryland 1, putting Slaton in position for his second TD run. Late in the period, Devine rambled 76 yards to the Maryland 1 and Slaton scored on the next play to make it 28-7. In the fourth quarter, Devine ran for 18 yards to place West Virginia (3-0) in position for a field goal. The freshman finished with 136 rushing yards on five carries. Keon Lattimore ran for 80 yards and a touchdown for Maryland (2-1). The Terrapins yielded 350 yards in their first two games; West Virginia finished with 448. West Virginia took the second-half kickoff and moved 63 yards in nine plays to go up 21-7. Three punts later, Devine’s 76-yard run helped make it 28-7. It was 31-7 before Maryland’s Jordan Steffy threw his first career touchdown pass, a 22-yarder to Danny Oquendo. From news services Steve Slaton was outstanding, as usual. No one, however, expected West Virginia’s running game to be so Devine. Slaton ran for 137 yards and three touchdowns, Noel Devine amassed 125 yards on his first three carries, and No. 4 West Virginia cruised past Maryland, 31-14, Thursday night in College Park, Md. Slaton scored on runs of 22, 1 and 1 yards. He has 41 TDs at West Virginia, one short of the school record shared by Ira Errett Rodgers and Avon Cobourne. Air Force 20, TCU 17: Ryan Harrison’s 33-yard field goal on second down gave Air Force a 20-17 overtime victory over visiting TCU, keeping the Falcons unbeaten under new coach Troy Calhoun. The Falcons (3-0, 2-0 Mountain West) overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit and were swarmed on the field by thousands of cadets who hadn’t had this much to celebrate in a long time. Harrison’s winner followed a miss by TCU kicker Chris Manfredini, whose 36-yard attempt hit the left upright on the first possession of overtime. The Falcons had tied it on Jim Ollis’ 71-yard TD run on an option pitch from Shaun Carney with 5:55 left. The Frogs (1-2, 0-1), still smarting from their 34-13 loss at Texas, were lethargic and sloppy, failing time and again to capitalize on short fields and prime opportunities. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

At Yosemite, even dining out can have an added dimension to it

Terry gives names to places we’ll hike and see tomorrow. Pull up to Yosemite Lodge. Yes, they have our reservations: Rooms 3303 and 3304. Stuff in. A splash, a dash and a comb. Time for 5:30 seating at the very famous Ahwahnee Hotel. Long walk in. Bar/caf on left, outdoor seating on other side of tall French doors, hotel reservation desk on right. We stroll through two other rooms. Like I said, it’s quite a distance. Now the big double doors, and we’re in the room. Well, it’s more than a room. It’s imagination, it’s history, it’s famous, it’s been used by the famous, plus it’s very, very big. Very big in many ways. When it was built, they had timbers. Not 8 by 8 or 16 by 16 ? they had timbers, so timbers it is. You won’t find many places like the Ahwahnee dining room. Let me throw in the windows. How about 30 feet by 10 feet with the main part 20 by 10? And outside, across grass and those trees, rocks that reach for the sky.

Countrywide takes huge hit, ends quarter $1.2 billion in red

first_imgCALABASAS – Countrywide Financial Corp. lost $1.2billion in the third quarter as its mortgage business took a huge hit from the credit crisis and home sales slump, the company said Friday. It was the first quarterly loss in 25 years for Calabasas-based Countrywide – and the company claimed the last by predicting it would return to profitability in the fourth quarter and next year. The optimistic forecast sent the company’s stock price soaring 32.3percent, to $17.30, after hitting a 52-week low Thursday. The share price is 64percent under the 52-week high of $45.26. “We continue to be bullish about the long-term prospects for both Countrywide and our industry,” company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Angelo Mozilo said during a lengthy conference call. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“I firmly believe that we will be as successful in the future as we have been in the past.” David Sambol, the company’s president and chief operating officer, blamed the lousy quarter on three factors: losses and writedowns on loans totaling $1billion, increased credit costs and charges related to cost reductions. Countrywide, the nation’s biggest mortgage lender, said last month that it was cutting up to 12,000 jobs. During the quarter, the company integrated its mortgage lending operations into Countrywide Bank and during September it accounted for about 90percent of loan fundings. Countrywide’s loss amounted to $2.85 a share, down from a profit of $648million, or $1.03 a share in the year-ago period. The company reported a revenue figure of negative $50million for the July through September period due to charges and writedowns compared with $2.82billion during the same period a year ago. “Countrywide’s results for the third quarter of 2007 reflect the impact of unprecedented disruptions in the U.S. mortgage market and the global capital markets, as well as continued weakening in the housing market,” Mozilo said. And because of that it is suffering proportionately, said Bart Narter, senior analyst with Celent, a Boston-based financial research and consulting firm. “While they have mildly expanded their offerings with Countrywide Bank to help fund their loans, they lack the diversity of a Washington Mutual or JPMorgan Chase,” Narter said in an e-mail. He also said Countrywide will have to change its business model to reflect the fact that it might need to fund its own originations for the upcoming months. “This should continue to be a drag on earnings well into 2008,” Narater said. During the quarter, Countrywide funded $96million in loans, down from $118million a year ago. To deal with rising late payments and defaults, the company also boosted reserves to $934million in the quarter, up from $38million during the year-ago period. The company said that it expects housing market weakness to continue through next year and loan originations will also fall. Increasing delinquencies and foreclosures are also anticipated. In its presentation to analysts, Countrywide noted that many of its competitors have quit the business and more are expected to do so in the coming months. Company executives predict that they will capture this part of the market share next year. It also said that current borrowers have very high credit quality. “Countrywide has sufficient capital, liquidity and financing capacity for its operating needs and growth needs,” Sambol said. Mozilo also defended his slew of stock trades and confirmed an informal probe of his actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission. These automatic trading plans were set up in 2004 because at that time he planned to retire in 2006, Mozilo said. “I’d like to state categorically that at no time did I make any trading decisions based on any material nonpublic information, and I fully complied with all company policies,” Mozilo said during the call. “I am confident that this will demonstrate that I’ve complied with all protocols.” greg.wilcox@dailynews.com (818) 713-3743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A quick glance at Buffon’s career when he was Donnarumma’s age – the heir?

first_imgWhat was Gianluigi Buffon up to when he was 18? That’s what the talkSPORT.com office were asking each other when Gianluigi Donnarumma’s future became clearer.If Milan director Marco Fassone is to be believed, then the 18-year-old goalkeeper won’t be at the club for much longer after deciding not to renew a contract that expires in 2018.“We are disheartened. [Donnarumma’s agent] Mino Raiola has conveyed to me Donnarumma’s decision not to renew. It’s his final decision,” he said.Donnarumma is said to be heir to Buffon’s no.1 spot in the Italy team, so here’s a quick glance at how the 39-year-old’s career was progressing when he was the same age. 2 Club debutBuffon: Was a 17-year-old Parma youngster when he played against Milan on 19 November, 1995. The game finished 0-0.Donnarumma: Was 16 when he played for Milan against Sassuolo on 25 October, 2015. Milan won 2-1International debutBuffon: At 19, he replaced Gianluca Pagliuca against Russia in a World Cup play-off match in Moscow on 29 October, 1997. It ended in a 1-1 draw and happened 484 days before Donnarumma was born.Donnarumma: At 17 years old, he replaced Buffon in a 3-1 defeat to France on 1 September, 2016.Their first full seasons in briefBuffon was Parma’s no.1 goalkeeper as the club finished second – two points behind Juve – in Serie A under Carlo Ancelotti in the 1996/97 season. This was his first full season as a professional and he played 27 of 34 games, with the team conceding 26 goals – 17 when Buffon was between the posts – though they did have Thuram, Sensini and Cannavaro in defence. He was 21 by the time he won his first domestic pieces of silverware when Parma were triumphant in the 1999 and Coppa Italia finals.Juventus signed him for £32m in 2001 where he has remained since.Although Donnarumma played 30 times in his breakthrough season, his first full season as Milan’s no.1 was the 2017/18 campaign and in his first match he saved Andrea Belotti’s stoppage time penalty to seal a 3-2 win. He played in all 38 games and the club finished sixth, conceded 45 goals, and secured a spot in the Europa League qualifying rounds. 2 A quick look at Buffon’s career when he was Donnarumma’s age last_img read more
