Man United first English club to earn £500m in revenue

first_imgManchester United have become the first English club to earn more than half a billion pounds in a single year, having announced a total revenue of £515.3 million, a 30 per cent rise in fourth-quarter revenue.The Old Trafford giants forecast lower earnings for the current year as the club will miss out on Champions League football after finishing fifth in the English Premier League last season.United said it expected 170-180 million pounds in adjusted core earnings this year after reporting a record figure of 192 million for the year ended June 30.It expects 530-540 million pounds in revenue this year, up from 515 million due to new television deals for Premier League clubs.United’s fifth place finish in the Premier League last season meant the team failed to qualify for a place in the lucrative Champions League in 2016-17 and will play in the lower profile Europa League instead.The club has said that its absence from the Champions League would reduce its revenue in 2016-17 by more than 30 million pounds.United responded by replacing team manager Louis van Gaal with Jose Mourinho who has signed France midfielder Paul Pogba for a world record fee of 89 million pounds and hired other big name players including Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.United said it recorded 15.1 million pounds in exceptional charges which included 8.4 million pounds on former manager Louis van Gaal’s payout.The club’s revenue for the fourth quarter rose to 134.5 million pounds from 105.8 million a year earlier. Adjusted core earnings jumped 53 percent to 49.3 million pounds.Source: cyprus-mail.comTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Mitchell Johnson bids adieu to Big Bash League

first_imgMitchell Johnson has bid a goodbye to the Big Bash League (BBL) at the age of 36 but has kept options open to play in domestic T20 tournament in the world.Johnson’s managed said that the increasing length and intensity of the Big Bash League forced the former Australian pacer to quit the domestic tournament.The BBL organisers have decided to expand the tournament with all the teams playing 14 games each in a home and away format before the knockout stage. There will be an increase of 16 matches from the previous season as 59 matches will be played in the eighth edition.Johnson, who featured for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League 2018, is yet to put any word on his participation in the tournament come the next season.IPL also features 14 games in the same format that BBL is adoption now, so Johnson’s participation is now under question.”The intensity and length of the BBL is just too much for someone who will be 37 at the start of the summer,” Sam Halvorsen, Johnson’s manager, told The West Australian newspaper. “Mitch has put his name up for the Emirates tournament in Dubai, but that is half the length of the BBL.”The T20 tournament in UAE is a 10-over format and Johnson will be hoping he is picked by any one of the eight franchises when the draft takes place in September.Johnson had a year-by-year contract with Perth Scorchers and represented the franchise in the last two season. He played a crucial role in their title-winning campaign in 2016-17. It was Johnson’s figures of 1/13 that paved way for the Scorchers’ win against Sydney Sixers in the final.advertisementJohnson played a total 19 Big Bash games and picked up 20 wickets at a strike rate of 22.2. His best performance of 3 for 3 came against Melbourne Stars in the semifinal in 2016-17.last_img read more

At Home With Avril Lavigne Whos Finally Back And Totally Ready to

first_imgIt’s all just so… grown-up, a categorization Lavigne had given a hard pass to as recently as her last album, 2013’s Avril Lavigne, where she insisted, in Peter Pan bangers like “Seventeen” and “Rock N Roll,” that we “still love it.” (“It” presumably referring to Lavigne’s penchant for lyrics about spontaneous day drinking.) Between then and the September drop of “Head Above Water,” we heard from Lavigne only a handful of times: when she popped up on Good Morning America in summer 2015 to say that she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease, when she got divorced from Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger later that year and when, in between those dual bummers, Taylor Swift brought her out in San Diego as part of the 1989 World Tour’s parade of admirable women, to perform her then-13-year-old debut single, “Complicated.” Lavigne says that at one point, she thought, Oh, I guess I’m done with making music. Avril Lavigne photographed on Aug. 13, 2018 in Los Angeles. Lavigne wears a Paul Smith sweater and What Katie Did tights. (David Needleman) Twitter The motherfucking princess is in her motherfucking castle.The princess is Avril Lavigne, who anointed herself on her 2007 No. 1 single “Girlfriend.” The castle — a Tudor home in an illustriously ZIP-coded L.A. neighborhood — is the only thing Lavigne has presided over since a tour that ended in 2014.A few weeks before the release of “Head Above Water,” her first single in four-and-a-half years, Lavigne sits under the cathedral-high ceiling of her home studio. It is the room where, over the course of her public absence, she recorded much of the album she plans to release in early 2019.

From her seat on a massive gray sectional (Avril Lavigne owns a sectional?), she reveals that she painted much of the art displayed in the expansive foyer and shows me the pink devotional journal gifted to her by her mother.

Holocaust Remembrance Day is a time to teach tolerance – Ban Kimoon

In a message on the Day, the Secretary-General said it is not enough to remember, honour and grieve for the dead. “As we do, we must also educate, nurture and care for the living.”He called for a special focus on the younger generation. “We must foster in our children a sense of responsibility, so that they can build societies that protect and promote the rights of all citizens,” he said.Children must gain a respect for diversity before intolerance has a chance to take root, “and a sense of vigilance in case it threatens to do so,” he said. “We must give them the courage and tools they need to make the right choices, and to act in the face of evil.”Mr. Ban also refuted Holocaust deniers. “To those who claim that the Holocaust never happened, or has been exaggerated, we respond by reiterating our determination to honour the memory of every innocent man, woman and child murdered at the hands of the Nazis and their accomplices,” he said.”We mourn the systematic genocide of one third of the Jewish people, along with members of other minorities, which deprived the world of untold contributions.”United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour said the Day provides the international community with a sober moment of reflection and remembrance. “We can truly honor the victims of the Holocaust by pursuing all efforts to extend the real protection of international human rights law to all those who fall victim to its violations.”By honouring the memory of those who fell victims to the most “horrendous manifestations of discrimination, hatred and intolerance,” she said the international community reaffirms their dignity as human beings, and its collective failure to protect them.In the face of continued manifestations of anti-Semitism, “this Day is a call on the world’s conscience and a reminder of the acute necessity to confront intolerance, bigotry, prejudice, ignorance and hatred, early and unequivocally.”On Saturday, the President of the UN General Assembly said the Day must serve as a global call to action to prevent future carnage. “For the dignity of all humanity, we must strengthen our ability, our collective resolve, to prevent such atrocities, whenever and wherever they might occur,” Srgjan Kerim told congregants at the Park East Synagogue in Manhattan.Numerous activities are scheduled to be held this week in connection with the Day, including a concert and a joint exhibition, “The Holocaust: Stories of Rescue” at UN Headquarters in New York.In 2005, the General Assembly designated 27 January, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, as an annual International Day of Commemoration to honour the victims of the Holocaust, and urged Member States to develop educational programmes to instill the memory of the tragedy in future generations. 27 January 2008As the global community today marked the third International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the occasion should serve to honour the victims and educate future generations. read more

Nepal UN receives assurances that discrimination verdicts will be enforced

Last January, the District Court in Baitadi sentenced the main perpetrator behind attacks against 12 Dalits – or so-called untouchables – at a temple to two years in prison and a fine of 25,000 rupees.In March of this year, the same court found a man guilty of physically assaulting the father of the groom during a wedding ceremony in July 2009 for practicing rituals “reserved for high-caste communities.” The perpetrator was sentenced to one year in prison and fined 5,000 rupees.The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) and the National Dalit Commission (NDC) said today that that have been assured by local authorities, including the Senior Superintendent of Police in Mahakali zone and the Deputy Superintendent of Police in Baitadi, that the two verdicts will be implemented quickly.In spite of repeated calls by OHCHR, the NDC, Nepal’s National Human Rights Commission and others, the court decisions have not been implemented.OHCHR and the NDC both welcomed the assurances they received from local authorities during a four-day joint mission to assess the overall human rights situation of Dalit communities in Nepal’s eastern region.The mission, said Jyoti Sanghera, OHCHR-Nepal’s Deputy Representative, uncovered many obstacles preventing Dalit communities from enjoying their fundamental human rights.“I call on the Government to undertake all necessary steps to address these challenges, and to execute the court orders as soon as possible,” she stressed. 21 July 2010The United Nations human rights office in Nepal today said that it has been assured by local Government officials that two landmark verdicts on cases involving caste-based discrimination will be swiftly enforced. read more

East meets west in Great Chardo Swap

A dozen Niagara winemakers are creating some unique wines for a prestigious event.Niagara has been named as the host for the prestigious International Cool Climate Wine Symposium (ICCWS) in 2020, the event’s 10th anniversary. As part of the lead-up to the symposium, 12 Niagara winemakers are using grapes from two specific vineyards to produce an assortment of one-of-a-kind Chardonnays.CCOVI Senior Oenologist Belinda Kemp, in Brock shirt, is pictured with the east side winemaking team including, from left, Fabien Reis, Ferox; Amelie Boury, Château des Charmes; J.L. Groux, Stratus Vineyards; Emma Garner (BSc, ’04), Thirty Bench Wine Makers; and Ann Sperling, Southbrook Vineyards.The Great Chardo Swap will see six winemakers from east of the Welland Canal making wine from grapes grown on the west side of the canal, and six winemakers from the west side making wine from chardonnay grapes grown on the east side. Two of those winemakers, Emma Garner (BSc ’04) from Thirty Bench Wine Makers and Shiraz Mottiar (BSc ’00) from Malivoire Wine Company, are graduates of Brock’s Oenology and Viticulture program. All of the fruit to make the Chardonnays is being donated by Inniskillin Wines and Thirty Bench.In total, 14 different Chardonnays will be developed during the initiative and unveiled at the ICCWS in 2020. Other than using the same closures and bottle type, the winemakers will have free rein to make their own distinct Chardonnay however they wish.Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) collaborated with stakeholder organizations across the country to bring the ICCWS to Canada, and it was CCOVI Senior Oenologist Belinda Kemp who came up with the idea for the Great Chardo Swap after hearing about a similar initiative that took place in New Zealand.CCOVI Senior Oenologist Belinda Kemp, centre, is pictured with the west side winemaking team including, from left: Bruce Nicholson, Inniskillin Wines; Emma Garner (BSc, ’04), Thirty Bench Wine Makers; Angelo Pavan, Cave Spring Cellars; Shiraz Mottiar (BSc, ’00), Malivoire Wine Company; Sandrine Bourcier, Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery; and Arthur Harder, Westcott Vineyards; Not present is Thomas Bachelder, Bachelder Wines.“The focus on terroir in wines is usually from a vineyard perspective that can sometimes neglect the influence of the winemaker and how their decisions and techniques impact the final wine,” Kemp said. “It will be interesting to see if specific traits and flavours follow through from one vineyard, regardless of who is making the wine, and whether we end up with very similar or very different wines from each vineyard.”Craig McDonald, Vice-President of Winemaking at Andrew Peller Limited, said he was on board to donate fruit from Andrew Peller’s Thirty Bench from the start.Thomas Bachelder of Bachelder Wines is also part of the west side team of winemakers.He said the experiment will provide new insight into the differences between the Niagara-on-the-Lake and Beamsville bench areas.“Likely, it will take some winemakers out of their comfort zone and challenge them with something new. In the end, it will be both a sensory and intellectual journey of discovery for all involved,” McDonald said.Bruce Nicholson, winemaker from Inniskillin Wines, said the initiative will serve as a means to showcase the local wine industry on an international level.“Niagara makes world-class wines, Chardonnay being right up there, and this really gives people a chance to see what we’re doing and how far we’ve come,” he explained. “We’re an industry in our infancy compared to other regions, but we’ve come such a long way. This will put a spotlight on our brilliant winemakers and really just be a lot of fun.”All of the wines will be part of a grand tasting at the ICCWS, where attendees will have the chance to discuss the decisions made by the winemakers at each stage of the process.East side winemaking team:Fabian Reis, FeroxJ.L.

Storms kill three in Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Serious flooding caused by heavy rainfall and hailstorms in the Peloponnese and northern Greece has caused massive damage as well as claiming the lives of three people.Apart from the 82-year-old woman who was found drowned near her home in the village of Lithari last Sunday, a 75-year-old motorcyclist was killed on the Ionian island of Corfu when he was struck by a tree uprooted amid strong winds, and in the village of Avlaki in Aetoloacarnania, a 75-year-old woman was crushed when an outdoor structure collapsed under the weight of the snow that had accumulated on it.In northern Greece, several homes were flooded, with the prefectures of Xanthi and Rhodope particularly badly hit. The Peloponnesian prefecture of Ileia, which has still not recovered from massive forest fires that devastated the region in 2007, suffered major damages over the weekend due to extensive flooding. Authorities had declared a state of emergency in the prefecture’s capital of Pyrgos last Monday and had sought to divert the waters of the River Alfeios, which broke its banks following the heavy rainfall, to tributaries. The regional fire service continued to receive dozens of calls from citizens seeking help for flooded basement stores or homes. Meanwhile state inspectors started the tough job of assessing the extent of the damage – to homes, public property and farmland. Their task was hampered by fresh rainfall which was set to continue until yesterday, according to meteorologists. In Attica, stormy weather led to several roads being closed due to flooding and knocked out the power supply in several neighborhoods, especially in southern and western Athens. The fire service was inundated with calls, chiefly reports of trees uprooted by winds reaching 10 on the Beaufort scale. Similar problems were reported in several smaller cities.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more
