Gunners seal Sonogo signing

first_img The 20-year-old, who has agreed a long-term deal with the Gunners, was a free agent after his contract with Ligue 1 outfit Auxerre expired. Sanogo is currently playing for France at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, scoring twice in the group stages to help his side through to the last 16, where they face the host nation. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is pleased to have captured the services of Sanogo, who scored 11 goals in 24 appearances with Auxerre after joining the club as a 14-year-old. Wenger said on www.arsenal.com: “Sanogo is a good young signing for us. He has shown that he has potential with his recent performances for Auxerre and also for the France Under-20 side. We are looking forward to Yaya joining us and continuing his promising development.” The Barclays Premier League club confirmed that the deal is subject to the completion of formal registration processes, with Sanogo set to join up with his new colleagues once his international commitments at the Under-20 World Cup are over . Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere believes if the Gunners were to sign England team-mate Wayne Rooney it would strike fear into the hearts of their Premier League title rivals. Rooney asked to leave Manchester United at the end of last season but it remains to be seen how the situation will develop with the arrival of new manager David Moyes, his former boss at Everton. Speaking in a question and answer session with www.espnfc.com, Wilshere said: “If it happens, it would be amazing. He (Rooney) is the type of player who can win you trophies – and just to see his name on the team sheet brings fear to the opposition. We could do with a little more of that.” Press Associationcenter_img Arsenal have confirmed the signing of France youth international attacker Yaya Sanogo.last_img read more

Also on the Board are Derrick Lawrence; Tom Dalgety; Euliene Watson; Vanda Radzic; Camilla Edwards; and the Commissioner of GGMC, Newell Dennison. A representative from each of the following organisations will be selected and added to the Board at a later date: the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA), the Guyana Women Miners Association (GWMA), the National Mining Syndicate, the Guyana Gold Board, the Guyana Forestry Commission and a worker’s representative from the GGMC.The Board is also expected to include in its membership representatives from the National Toshaos Council (NTC), the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and the Guyana Police Force (GPF), as ex officio members. The Board members will serve from March 1, 2019 to February 28, 2020.These appointments come at a time when total gold declarations for last year amounted to 613,073 ounces, which was 6.22 per cent lower than 2017 – 653,754 ounces were declared in 2017.Lowered expectationsGovernment had initially set a target of 720,000 ounces for 2017 but at the end of 2017 was only able declare 653,674 ounces, prompting Finance Minister Winston Jordan to dub the performance disappointing.An ambitious 800,000 ounces’ target was set for 2018. The foreign exchange value of exports processed on behalf of dealers and itself at the Guyana Gold Board (GGB) came to US$443,961,666.The appointments come at a time when a major gold company will be branching off into underground miningIt is understood that gold dealers Mohamed’s Enterprise, and El Dorado Trading finished first and second respectively in total declarations and exports of gold. Other dealers that contributed are: Pure Diamond, Dinar, Excel, Adamantium Metals, GBTI Property Holdings Inc, and Gold Bar Development.The appointments also come at a time when Canadian owned Guyana Goldfields is looking to branch off into underground mining. Last month, Goldfields was issued a permit by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to construct the underground mine.It is currently awaiting further approvals from the GGMC. In fact, Guyana Times observed equipment assembled at the site, waiting for the go ahead, during a recent visit.So far, Guyana Goldfields has invested US$300 million into its local operations. The underground mine is expected to cost US$25 million in the initial exploration stages. A further US$100 million is likely to be invested over the next 10 years of production.RevenueBut the company is optimistic of more than recovering that investment. Chief Executive Officer of Guyana Goldfields, Scott Caldwell, had been optimistic of the underground mines surpassing their previous operations. According to Caldwell, the underground well is likely to be a game changer when it comes to revenue.When asked about the application, Commissioner Dennison explained that the GGMC is in possession of Goldfields’ application and will soon know whether anything else is needed. He had made it clear that GGMC has no intention of delaying the process, but was only exercising its due diligence for such a venture.“From what I am aware, they have submitted [the documents]. I am of the view that we are in good way to be conducting the examination to determine whether we need anything more.”“To the extent that we ascertain that what is therein is sufficient representation of what they plan to do, and it is in keeping with our regulations and what we consider typical practices for these types of activities, we would then issue the permit,” Dennison said.last_img read more

Didnt join Bollywood to make films with stars

first_imgMumbai: Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia has a solid clarity of what he wants to do: make films which have his trademark style and never chase stars to get his dream on celluloid. The director, who has helmed mid-budget but critically acclaimed films like Paan Singh Tomar and Saheb Biwi aur Gangster series, has learnt over the years on how to avoid the pressure of having a star to headline his film. “I don’t want to sound pompous but I want my films to be a ‘Tigmanshu Dhulia Film.’ Whether it’s a hit or a flop, doesn’t matter. I came to this industry to make films, not to make films with stars. Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knot”Now I’ve learnt to not approach those producers with those kind of scripts where they will ask me to get a star. I don’t fall into that trap anymore,” said Tigmanshu. The pressure on a director to get a star on board can be quite daunting. Tigmanshu first hand experienced this while making his upcoming directorial, Milan Talkies, which earlier had several names attached to it, from Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra to Imran Khan. Though conceptualised around 2011, Tigmanshu had to cross several roadblocks to finally make the film.

There was a gap then and Ekta pushed really hard. I’ll give it up to her.” “Despite actors saying yes and no, dillydallying about it, she held on to it. But they needed a star. I requested her let me make it with whoever because otherwise this will never get made and she did.” The filmmaker is now ready to release Milan Talkies on March 15, featuring Ali Fazal.last_img read more
