Sidhu also talked in detail trying to clear the air overSidhu also talked in detail trying to clear the air over earlier speculations on his joining AAP. “I will tell you why Sidhu could not be one with Kejriwal Sahib. When I speak, I speak less, but when I do, then I do not leave anything, I will make all things clear to you,” he told a volley of questions fielded on the issue. “Kejriwal and his men were luring me for last two years to join AAP. They offered many things, but I only asked them to define my role. I wanted to know his intentions and his aim,” he said. “He (Kejriwal) told me not to contest but only campaign. But he said my wife can contest and will make her a Minister (if AAP is voted to power in Punjab). I thanked him. He also wanted to make me a decoration piece, which I was earlier. Even my wife was taken aback when I told her that they just want me to campaign, to which she told why is he (Kejriwal) so insecure. My wife also told me that they (AAP) wants to keep me as decoration piece,” Sidhu said. Attacking the AAP leader, Sidhu said, “Kejriwal wants only yes men…arrogance in democracy is not acceptable.” “Kejriwal thinks only he is honest and no one else is and it is his copyright. He feels others have no right to say that they are honest. I am sitting here with people who are to help Punjab. I am ready to give my life for Punjab. “Kejriwal is always trying to indulge in one-upmanship and take credit and no one else is allowed to do so,” said Sidhu. He also tried to clarify speculations which were rife earlier that he had resigned from the Rajya Sabha to join AAP, saying it was a “conscientious decision” which he had taken following his “inner voice”. “Let me make one thing clear that my resignation from the Rajya Sahba has nothing to do with Kejriwal Sahib. I had refused RS seat offered to me when Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah had called me two years back and told that party has decided that Jaitley will contest from Amritsar, a step which I welcomed. “Later, I was offered the RS seat and I said I do not believe in bargain. First, I do not take seat for which Badals party will have to back me and second, I do not bargain. I said I have given my committment to people of Amritsar that world may turn upside down, but I will not leave them. They have made me from Amritsar for four time,” he said. “Rejection or relevance in democracy rests with the people. I am today what I am because of people of Amritsar,” he said. Attacking BJP and the Akalis, Sidhu said he was made a “decorative piece” by the ruling dispensation and was not accorded any importance even at public functions, fearing he may hog limelight.

Bengaluru, July 13 (PTI) Swashbuckling West Indian opening batsman Chris Gayle has invested an undisclosed amount in IONA Entertainment to bring one-stop entertainment to Indian sports fans, which includes state-of-the-art virtual gaming. Speaking to reporters here, Gayle said he is a family man and loved to be associated with IONA, which is a family-oriented firm with potential to grow into a big business. He also said India is his top priority in terms of investment destinations and wanted to invest as many businesses as possible. Iona, at present, has one 70,000 square-feet gaming venue at Virginia Mall here. It had raised an initial round of funding from Singapore-based Vestasia. Replying to a query, CMD at Virginia Mall Company B Ramaswamy said IONA has chalked out a Rs 200-crore expansion plan in the first phase. “Rs 200 crore is just a phase one investment. We need toinvest more, and partners coming in like Chris Gayle and Vestasia further strengthens our brand in the quest to become a global player,” she said. Asked what percentage of Rs 200 crore has Gayle invested in the venture, Ramaswamy said, “I have two answers for that. One is Chris Gayle cannot be valued. Two, the brand is young, for we had launched the brand just about a month ago.” Ramaswamy said the company is still in talks with Gayle and other stakeholders about business modalities. “Lot of paperwork, valuations among other things needs to be workedout. We will come back on it once all the modalities arefinished,” she said. IONA Founder Subramanian said the company has big plans and intend to set up gaming zones in different parts of the country and make its presence felt abroad. “We are planning to expand pan-India and by the end of the year, we are looking at having five more centres in India and two abroad,” he said.

West ham United signed striker Lucas Perez from Arsenal on the last day of the transfer window for English clubs this season on Thursday.The 29-year-old is West Ham’s seventh signing of the close season. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but local media said West Ham had paid about 4 million pounds ($5.16 million) for the Spaniard.Perez joined Arsenal in August 2016 from Deportivo la Coruna but started just two Premier League games for the London club, making another nine appearances off the bench, before being loaned back to the Spanish side the following season.”I’m very happy to be here at such an historic club,” told West Ham’s website.@LP10oficial! #WelcomeLucas pic.twitter.com/eBNMPdZAIvWest Ham United (@WestHamUtd) August 9, 2018″I’m very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I’m very happy to be part of this new project.”With Andy Carroll set to miss West Ham’s season opener at Liverpool on Sunday due to injury, West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said Perez’s arrival would increase new manager Manuel Pellegrini’s options up front.”His style is different from the other strikers we have available to us, and that gives the manager more options for our attacking play,” Husillos said.”Lucas also has experience of the Premier League with Arsenal, and is familiar with life here in London, which of course means that he will take less time to adapt and be ready.”The English transfer window closes at 1600 GMT (05:00 p.m. BST) on Thursday.advertisement(With Reuters input)

CALGARY – Two Calgary men have been apprehended by police in Montreal in the shooting death of a 23-year-old man in a home in southeast Calgary on the weekend.The body of Mvemba Eriq Afonso was found Saturday and police identified a stolen black Dodge truck that was seen fleeing the neighbourhood.On Tuesday, members of the Quebec provincial police stopped the suspect vehicle at an undisclosed location in Montreal and notified the Calgary police.Mourad Gasmi, 21, and Shannoh Jabet, 22, face second-degree murder charges in Afonso’s death.Two Calgary police officers travelled to Montreal to conduct interviews.Acting Inspector Paul Wozney of the Calgary police credited “good old-fashioned police work” by a member of the Quebec provincial police for the arrests.“You have a young patrol member who queries a licence plate and learns very quickly the plate is from a stolen vehicle associated to something in Alberta and does a very good job of safely taking those people into custody,” said Wozney.He said the killing is believed to be part of a drug crime, adding that Afonso and the two accused were known to each other.(CTV Calgary)
Rabat – A Scottish nurse was diagnosed with the Ebola virus. British officials are tracing scores of passengers on the nurse’s Royal Air Maroc flight into the UK from Casablanca international Airport.According to the Guardian, the nurse spent the last month working as a volunteer with Save the Children in Ebola-stricken Sierra Leon to help combat the epidemic.She had been volunteering at a newly built hospital at Kerry Town in Sierra Leone run by the charity Save the Children since November 23rd. She was transferred from Glasgow airport in a quarantine tent surrounded by a group of health worker in full protection suits to the Royal Free Hospital in north London.It is the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed on UK soil, added the Guardian.The British officials from Health Protection Scotland and Public Health England are also mapping out scores of 71 passengers on her internal British Airways connection from Heathrow to Glasgow on Sunday night.Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish first minister said on Monday that the search for passengers was “very much precautionary measures.”“The risk to other people as a result of this Ebola case is deemed to be extremely low,” Sturgeon told a press conference.
16 March 2011Voicing deep concern at acts of violence marring the campaign for Sunday’s elections in Haiti, some of them fatal, the United Nations today called on all candidates, especially those in the presidential run-off, to avoid threats, intimidation and harassment. “Consolidation of democracy in Haiti depends largely on the will of politicians to adopt the principles of a peaceful transfer of power and to accept election results in accordance with mechanisms provided by the electoral law,” the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) said in a news release.Former first lady Mirlande Manigat and popular musician Michel Martelly are facing off in the presidential poll, which was delayed by two months when violence erupted after disputed first round results were announced in December.Thousands of protesters rampaged through the streets of Port-au-Prince, the capital, accusing the ruling coalition of rigging the polls when tallies put Ms. Manigat and outgoing President Rene Préval’s party candidate Jude Celestin in first and second place, thus qualifying for the run-off.Mr. Martelly was less than one percentage point behind in third place, but thus excluded from the run-off, and his supporters set up burning barricades of timber, boulders and flaming tires. After a re-examination of the ballots, the Provisional Electoral Council last month announced that Mr. Martelly had come in second and would thus face Ms. Manigat. “MINUSTAH urges all candidates as well as their followers to safeguard the integrity of the democratic process and to scrupulously respect the primacy of the law,” today’s news release said, noting that any call to demonstrate before the publication of the results violates the electoral law.The mission, with almost 12,250 uniformed personnel currently on the ground, has been in Haiti since mid-2004 after then president Jean-Bertrand Aristide went into exile amid violent unrest.
Paul Buford, a pastor at a church just a couple of miles away in Sutherland Springs, told KSAT-TV that his congregation was in the middle of their service at River Oaks Church when they started getting calls about the shooting.Members of his church who are first responders rushed out while the rest of the congregation immediately started praying. (Colombo Gazette) The Sri Lankan Government today said it was saddened by the shooting at a Texas church in which 26 people were killed.President Maithripala Sirisena tweeted expressing his deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the victims and the US nation. “Saddened by the #sutherlandsprings,Texas church shooting. Our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the victims and the US nation,” the President tweeted. The investigation into his background is unfolding. The suspect’s Facebook profile appeared to show a picture of an AR-15 –style gun. A LinkedIn account that is believed to be associated with the shooter suggested that he had a military background.Among those killed at the First Baptist Church was a 14-year-old girl named Annabelle Renee Pomeroy, according to her father, Frank Pomeroy, who is a pastor at the church. Authorities identified the shooter as Devin Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, Texas, which is about 35 miles from Sutherland Springs.
A 22-year-old employee of the UN migration agency, IOM, was among at least 13 killed. The woman, who is not being named, lost her husband during a bombing in the capital Kabul three years ago, and the couple had a daughter, aged six, who has now been orphaned. “Our immediate thoughts are with her family and friends,” IOM said in a press statement, expressing the UN’s “deep sense of revulsion at this senseless attack that claimed the lives of at least 13 civilians.”The agency said that another colleague was among the 20 injured in Wednesday’s armed attack in the eastern city of Jalalabad, When the government Department of Refugees and Returnees was strafed by gunfire for hours. IOM wished “him and all the injured a speedy and full recovery.”IOM Director General William Lacy Swing condemned “this heinous crime which has taken the life of a brave colleague in Jalalabad and left another grievously injured.”“My heart goes out to the families of the victims, and all of us in IOM are thinking of our staff working in difficult conditions across the country on behalf of the Afghan people,” he added.,The bombing is the latest in a series of attacks attributed to the ISIL terrorist group, also known as Da’esh, that have killed or wounded hundreds of people in eastern Afghanistan since mid-June amidst growing political and territorial rivalry between ISIL and the Taliban, according to news reports. “There is no justification for such acts of terror,” IOM underscored, calling her “one of thousands of Afghans who form the backbone” of the UN’s daily work in the country “to help the most in need, supporting development and contributing to the restoration of peace and stability.”On Thursday Secretary-General António Guterres issued a statement through his spokesperson spelling out: “Any attack deliberately targeting civilians is unjustifiable and in clear violation of international law.”The Secretary-General extended his “deepest condolences” to the victims’ families and wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured. “The United Nations stands with the people and Government of Afghanistan as they strive for peace and reconciliation in their country,” concluded the statement.,According to figures released mid-July by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, known as UNAMA, 1,692 civilians were killed and another 3,430 injured in the first six months of 2018 – a record high number for the first six months of any year, despite an unprecedented ceasefire between the Government and Taliban extremists in mid-June.Referring to the young IOM worker, Tadamichi Yamamoto, head of the UN Mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA, said: “We mourn the loss of our colleague and, in tribute, commit ourselves to re-double our work to serve Afghanistan and its peoples.”IOM stressed that deliberately targeting civilians and their places of work, such as the department in Jalalabad, is an “appalling crime.” The agency called for the “architects” of the attack to be brought to justice.
Changes are coming to Brock’s parking lots in time for the upcoming academic year.The reconfiguration of two lots is intended to provide flexibility and meet student and staff demand, particularly when hosting events on the east side of campus near Pond Inlet and the Cairns building.“Currently we have Lot E with 46 parking spaces, including accessible parking,” said Wendy Laslo, Brock’s managing director of Visitor, Conference and Parking Services. “The current Lot E will be renamed Lot E1 and will not see any physical changes. Both hourly and a new day parking rate similar to Lot D on the west side of campus will be offered. The north tip of Reserved A will be seconded to create a new hourly pay parking area called E2, (which will create) approximately 18 spaces.”The creation of the new E2 lot increases pay parking on the east side of campus to approximately 64 spaces.“Offering a day rate similar to that offered in Lot D ($7) in E1 allows us to provide a consistent product on the east side of campus along with the flexibility of hourly pay parking as well,” Laslo said. “Events on the east side of campus in the Pond Inlet and Cairns are becoming popular, and these added spaces will provide the needed guest parking.”The creation of this additional pay parking area will include moving of some jersey barriers, new signage, a new pay machine and the painting of the entrance into the lot.Laslo believes the reduction of spaces in Reserved A will have little or no impact on the number of parking spaces available to Reserved A permit holders.Parking permits ordered for fall for to be delivered by Canada Post will be mailed out in mid August. Permits ordered for pick up at Parking Services will be available at the office beginning Aug. 18.Permits for mailing via interoffice will be sent out mid to late August. Please order your permit in advance to avoid the September lineups.If you have any questions, please contact Parking Services at x4309.
With a marketing degree from Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business and four scholar-athlete awards under his belt, you might say Devin McCarthy of the OSU men’s tennis team has a bright future in the corporate world, if not for one problem – he isn’t finished with tennis. McCarthy, the only redshirt senior on this year’s OSU squad, plans to take his skills to the professional level after No. 5 Buckeyes (26-2, 9-0) finish their 2013 season. McCarthy graduated from OSU in December. “I think I’m going to, in June, go to Mexico for a couple weeks to play some (professional) tournaments. I’m not ready to give up tennis … I don’t really want to sit behind a desk, so I’m going to go try (professional tennis) out and see what happens,” McCarthy said. McCarthy, though, didn’t always think he had the skills to go pro. When he was recruited out of his Cincinnati-area high school by OSU coach Ty Tucker and brought onto the team as a freshman, McCarthy didn’t see that level of potential in his own play. “(Tucker) took a chance on me. I wasn’t that great in juniors, (I) took some time off, my ranking wasn’t that great, and (Tucker) brought me in and spent some time with me in the summer when I was a guy that wasn’t in the lineup, and he spent a lot of time with me,” McCarthy said. However, what McCarthy failed to see in himself, Tucker saw immediately. “I thought (he had) very good potential … (he was) a guy that should have been highly recruited, wasn’t as highly recruited as he should have been. To us he was a certain ‘can’t miss’ player,” Tucker said. “We were very fortunate to get him.” McCarthy is the fourth child in his family to play Big Ten tennis. His two older brothers, Ryan and Mike, played for Indiana, and his other brother, Andrew, played at Northwestern. McCarthy said many of the improvements made in his tennis game came during his true freshman year when he did not see action for the Buckeyes. “Honestly, I don’t think that if I came (to OSU) early, I don’t think I would be playing. I don’t think I would have ever made it in the lineup,” McCarthy said. “I came here in the winter of 2009, and was the worst on the team, second worst on the team. (I) stayed that summer … and that’s when I made the biggest jump and probably got two levels better.” Over the course of the next four years, his extra time spent training and developing began to pay on the court. “(McCarthy) finally earned a spot on the team and never gave it up. He’s been a horse for us – I feel one of the two or three most underrated players in college tennis,” Tucker said. During McCarthy’s OSU career, the Buckeyes have won five Big Ten regular-season championships, four Big Ten tournament championships and have never lost a match at home. McCarthy is ranked No. 91 nationally. Off the court, McCarthy has established himself as a four-time OSU scholar-athlete, three-time Academic All-Big Ten recipient and a mentor to many of his younger teammates. “It’s not always just tennis … (McCarthy) has a great personality and is easy to get along with, and he’s been probably my best friend on the team since I’ve been (at OSU),” said redshirt junior Peter Kobelt. “We’re going to miss him for who he is and for what he does on and off the court.” “He’s been a great leader.” Visit www.thelantern.com for the rest of this story. Tucker said he will be sad to see McCarthy leave but is proud of what he has accomplished during his five years as a student. “I think (Devin) is a great guy – exactly what OSU wants and a true competitor. Him leaving is very, very sad to me,” Tucker said. “Every guy that has ever come through (the program) is a good friend of mine at the end … and I look forward to that relationship with Devin.” McCarthy said his memories at OSU are countless. “Just saying I was an athlete at OSU is going to be pretty sweet to be able to say and look back on,” McCarthy said. “One of the coolest things is being in Seattle or being in California and you’re walking with an OSU shirt and some random dude walks up to you and says ‘O-H’ and you respond ‘I-O’ and then finds out you’re an athlete, and they think it’s the coolest thing in the world.” For the time being however, there are still a few things left to check off on McCarthy’s to-do list before he moves on from his career as a Buckeye. “Winning the Big Ten title at home would be awesome in front of my whole family,” he said. “And I think we’ve got a good shot of winning the national title this year, and that would be the ultimate dream.” McCarthy and the rest of the Buckeye squad are scheduled to face Michigan State on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Varsity Tennis Center.

The merchandise references the Prime Minister’s comments ‘We do not need “gender whisperers” in schools’.Morrison shared an article which claimed training teachers to be aware of transgender students had lead to a surge in young people transitioning.‘Gender whisperers is a political act of the oldest kind, taking the taunts and names our oppressors throw at us and turning then into words we proudly celebrate and own’, one coordinator behind campaign, who wished to remain anonymous, told Gay Star News.‘Our Prime Minster used the term “gender whisperers” to deliberately smear the reputation of the many wonderful educators and school staff who stand by our trans, gender diverse and non-binary children and young people everyday in schools’, they said.‘We are taking the term “gender whisperers” off him and taking it for ourselves.’Importantly, the organizer said they hope trans, gender diverse and non-binary young people see the T-shirts and tote bags in and around their communities. ‘We want them to know that we have their backs’.All profits will go towards Victoria-based groups advocating for young people. These are Ygender, Parents of Gender Diverse Youth and Queerspace youth.
