Managerial appointment would ‘excite’ Liverpool fans, claims ex-Reds goal machine

first_imgFormer Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes a hungry Jurgen Klopp would “be the best fit” to replace Brendan Rodgers at the Anfield helm.Klopp, formerly in charge of Borussia Dortmund, is favourite to become the new Reds manager after Rodgers was sacked following Sunday’s 1-1 Merseyside derby draw – a move welcomed by Owen along with many other ex-players of the Premier League club.Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are moving quickly to secure Rodgers’ replacement and have taken steps to sound out Klopp.Klopp has long been seen as the ideal fit at Anfield – he is certainly the popular choice of fans – and even though three-time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti is available, the overwhelming support is for the German.Owen, who scored 158 goals in 297 appearances for Liverpool in an eight-year spell at the beginning of his career before joining Real Madrid in 2004, told Sportlobster: “If indeed these are the two main men [Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp], I would think that Klopp is the better fit for Liverpool at this time.“I think that a younger and potentially hungrier manager in Jurgen Klopp would be the best fit for Liverpool in their current predicament.”The 35-year-old former England international believes having Klopp in charge would bring some much-needed confidence back to Liverpool which was lost under Rodgers.He added: “His appointment would certainly excite the Liverpool fans who had become so disillusioned with Rodgers and in this day and age their part in the whole process cannot be over-estimated.“He would also bring a burning desire to succeed and to take the club from their true position of ‘top six’ to right back in the mix for winning the title and where finishing top four is a given every season.“The other big advantage that Klopp has over Ancelotti is that whereas Ancelotti has generally managed at clubs who were already very successful with a squad full of top players, Klopp took over at Borussia Dortmund when they were in a similar position to that which Liverpool find themselves in now.”Regarding Ancelotti’s record, Owen said: “Nobody can fault Ancelotti’s track record over the years and with a coaching resume that includes Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid there can be little doubt that he would be a success at Liverpool.“However, I’m not sure that Liverpool need a safe pair of hands at this time.” 1 Jurgen Klopp last_img read more

David Beckham: FIFA corruption scandal is ‘disgusting’

first_imgFormer England captain David Beckham has branded the ongoing corruption scandals at FIFA “disgusting”, but believes the 2018 and 2022 World Cups should not be moved.FIFA has been in crisis since May when 14 executives were indicted as part an FBI investigation into corruption, and last week 16 more officials were charged by US authorities.President Sepp Blatter and UEFA president Michel Platini are each serving 90-day suspensions while a Swiss criminal investigation into the bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in Russia and Qatar was launched earlier this year.Beckham, who was part of the FA delegation aiming to win the 2018 bid, was asked whether the arrests and the prospect of a new president in 2016 meant FIFA was turning a corner.“No – they are just hitting the bend,” Beckham told the Christmas issue of Radio Times.“There’s a lot still to be done. It’s such a mess that it’s going to take a while to sort out.“For me to see the game, the way it’s been treated and looked after, is devastating. It’s disgusting.”There have been repeated calls for the 2018 and 2022 elections to be re-run, with 16 of the 24 committee members serving at the time of the bids either already punished for misconduct or currently under investigation.The Qatar tournament in 2022 has come under particular scrutiny, given the tournament will need to be played in the winter months due to the high risk to players and fans from temperatures that can reach 50 degrees Celsius in summer.It has been proposed that the competition will instead start in November and despite the difficulties, Beckham insists “they’ll make it work”.“Whether it’s corrupt or not, those countries have been chosen,” the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy superstar said.“People need to get behind that. It’s all about bringing football to new countries. I think they should stick with it.” Former England captain David Beckham 1last_img read more

LAPD drops plan to map Muslims

first_imgBut the ACLU, which with Muslim groups signed the letter expressing “grave” concerns over the plans, remained skeptical. “We are concerned that (the plan) not come back doing exactly what the map plan did, but in another name,” said Ramona Ripston, executive director of the ACLU of Southern California. “It has to be explained. It has to be done with openness and transparency.” During a radio interview on Wednesday night, Downing said “we are going to push the word mapping to the side.” “The three objectives we are trying to reach here is how do we better understand Muslim communities in Los Angeles…? How do we have meaningful engagement and how do we prioritize this engagement?” Los Angeles has the second largest Muslim population in the country after Detroit. There are an estimated 500,000 Muslims in Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties. “We believe 99.999 percent of our Muslim population are integrated and healthy and spirited and aligned with us in protecting American values,” Downing said. “But we believe there are isolated communities that can use support.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said the LAPD made the right decision. “While I believe the department’s efforts to reach out to the Muslim communities were well-intentioned,” Villaraigosa said, “the mapping proposal has created a level of fear and apprehension that made it counterproductive.” rachel.uranga@dailynews.com 818-713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The LAPD dropped plans Wednesday to map the city’s Muslim community as part of a counterterrorism initiative, less than a week after prominent Muslims and the ACLU decried the move as racial profiling. A day ahead of a meeting with Muslim leaders and the American Civil Liberties Union, the LAPD said it would not go ahead with plans to keep detailed records of neighborhoods with significant Muslim populations. “It’s been put aside,” said LAPD spokeswoman Mary Grady. “It became clear to us they were not comfortable with the word `mapping’ and what they believed it meant: racial profiling.” Instead, Grady said the Los Angeles Police Department would build relationships with the Muslim community.

I don’t see them moving forward on the mapping at all. “My reading is that he wants to move forward on a dialogue and constructive engagement. And to start building trust and transparency,” he said. “(Today) will be the first step toward that dialogue.” last_img

ÚDARÁS ANNOUNCES 11 EXTRA JOBS IN DONEGAL IN 2012

first_imgSteve Ó CúláinBOSSES at Údarás na Gaeltachta have announced a net loss of 37 jobs last year in its client companies nationwide, but jobs grew in Donegal with an extra 11 employed compared to 2011.More than 700 jobs were created last year with a further 670 in the pipeline.In a joint statement issued by Anna Ní Ghallachair, Chairperson and Steve Ó Cúláin, Chief Executive, Údarás na Gaeltachta, the organisation said export-led companies continue to show growth in sales and employment. Referring to Donegal, they say: “A total of 223 new jobs were created in the Donegal Gaeltacht in 2012. There were 1,878 full-time equivalent jobs in Údarás-supported companies in the Donegal Gaeltacht at year end.“New jobs were created in companies such as Euroflex Teo and R.A.Pacáistí Teo on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park, Randox Teo in An Clochán Liath and, most substantially, Earagail Éisc in Mín an Aoire in South West Donegal, with an increase of 46 new jobs.“When job losses are taken into account, there was a modest net gain of 11 new jobs in the Donegal Gaeltacht. Companies in the tourism, construction-related, and services industries shed jobs. Éist agus Cuidiú Teo and Wiss Medi Teo on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park ceased trading during the year with a loss of 32 and 10 jobs respectively.“A number of significant projects were approved by Údarás during the year which will involve a total investment of over €14m and the creation of approximately 60 new jobs when the projects are up and running.” Here’s their Review of 20122012 saw the enactment of the Gaeltacht Bill which provides a new strategic and operational environment for An tÚdarás. The Gaeltacht Act 2012 endorses Údarás na Gaeltachta’s role as the principal stakeholder in the regional development of the Gaeltacht and gives statutory effect to the implementation by Údarás of the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030 in the Gaeltacht. Following the enactment of the Gaeltacht Act a new Board was appointed to An tÚdarás.Údarás na Gaeltachta client companies created 700 new jobs last year. Total employment in Údarás client companies stood at 7,553 at 2012 year end, of which 6,933 are full-time jobs and 620 are part-time jobs. When full-time job losses are taken into consideration, there was a net loss of 37 jobs overall.Employment in the Gaeltacht2012 saw the lowest rate of job losses in Údarás na Gaeltachta client companies for well over a decade. Gaeltacht companies have stabilised their employment base, are more competitive and have a stronger export focus. Companies involved in the pharmaceutical, medical devices, food and niche manufacturing sectors increased their employment levels during the year. During 2012 export-led companies continued to grow sales and employment. Client companies trading in the domestic market experienced ongoing difficulties during the year. Companies operating in the services, tourism and traditional manufacturing sectors reduced their employment numbers during the year.670 jobs approved for the Gaeltacht during 2012Údarás na Gaeltachta approved projects during the year which are expected to create 460 new jobs and lead to an overall projected investment of €37 million by Gaeltacht companies.Many of these jobs will be coming on stream in 2013 and in subsequent years. Significantly, support for a further 220 new jobs was approved by IDA Ireland for the Údarás client company Bioniche Pharma which is located in Indreabhán, Connemara during the year. Mylan, the largest generics pharmaceutical manufacturer in Ireland and one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, acquired Bioniche Pharma in 2010. Mylan announced during the year it is to expand its facility in Connemara and establish it as a centre of excellence for the company’s injectable pharmaceutical products and R&D processes.Economic Impact of Údarás client companies continues to increaseThe ABSEI* research undertaken by Forfás in 2012 shows that total sales in Údarás client companies stood at €784 million, an increase of 3% on the previous year’s figures, with a very positive 11% growth forecasted for the following year. Exports sales were up 10% to €452 million and further growth targets of up to 15% are expected next year, which will see record level exports achieved by Údarás client companies. Total exports, as a percentage of sales, in Údarás client companies have increased from 50% to 62% since 2009. Gaeltacht companies also have a significant impact in the Gaeltacht and domestic economy and this is illustrated by the 9% increase in its spend on Irish-produced materials, contributing €431 million in direct expenditure in the economy last year. Total payroll amounted to €190 million.Challenges for job creationAn tÚdarás believes it is important to highlight that, although the level of job losses has stabilised and is at its lowest level in years, the number of new jobs being created is not sufficient to maintain employment levels in the Gaeltacht. The fall-off in job approvals is due to a number of factors, which include the challenging global economic conditions, companies deferring expansion and capital investment plans, and also a substantial reduction in capital budget provision to Údarás. This restricted the operations of the organisation in its capacity to approve new projects and investments and develop modern business infrastructure.In order to attract inward investment, the Gaeltacht needs to be in a position to offer modern enterprises the most up-to-date physical, business and telecommunications infrastructure. The absence of access to high-speed broadband is still a challenge for companies in some Gaeltacht areas.Social Employment Schemes important in providing training and work experienceSocial employment schemes continue to play an important role in providing work experience and training for Gaeltacht communities. Údarás na Gaeltachta manages and administers the Community Employment Scheme, the Rural Social Scheme, Tús and the Jobs Initiative, which are funded by the Department of Social Protection. In 2012 over 960 participants and 47 supervisors were employed in 46 schemes throughout the Gaeltacht. These social employment schemes are central to community development and language maintenance programmes and activities in the Gaeltacht.Irish Language and Community Development ActivitiesUnder the Gaeltacht Act 2012, Údarás na Gaeltachta has a statutory function regarding the implementation of the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language in the Gaeltacht. The strategy places emphasis on integrated language planning at community level and the Gaeltacht Act 2012 establishes the statutory basis for the language planning process in the Gaeltacht.Language planning at community level presents challenges. The process is dependent on integrated support from government departments, state organisations and those providing services to the Gaeltacht community.The implementation of the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language is the overall responsibility of the Strategy Unit in the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and various working groups have been established by the Strategy Unit to advance the progress of the various measures. An tÚdarás will be working with the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and with Gaeltacht communities so as to develop effective strategies and language plans which will support language maintenance and development locally.During 2012 a number of working groups were formed consisting of representatives from the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Foras na Gaeilge, The Department of Education and Skills, and An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta (COGG). Gaeltacht community-based organisations will have a central role in the implementation of the Gaeltacht Act 2012. Údarás executives, in conjunction with executives from the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, organised two information sessions in the Gaeltacht areas, based on the Gaeltacht Bill as it was at the time, to establish the views of the communities. Information meetings will again take place early in 2013 to discuss the arrangements for the Gaeltacht Language Planning Areas, Gaeltacht Service Towns, and plans and opportunities concerning the language planning process in the Gaeltacht.Focus for 2013An tÚdarás will continue to implement its strategic plan for the Gaeltacht. Employment creation in key sectors which have the potential to contribute to sustainable economic development, including natural and marine resources, life sciences, ICT, tourism, niche manufacturing, engineering, food and other high-value commodities will be supported. Initiatives central to community development and language planning such as supports for childcare and pre-school education, youth development and training, all through the medium of Irish, will continue to be supported. All of these programmes are rooted in the needs of the community’s linguistic, social as well as economic requirements and form an integrated and comprehensive approach to development and language maintenance.The organisation will reorganise and restructure its resources and its work programmes to ensure implementation of its new strategy as outlined in the Gaeltacht Act 2012.We would like to acknowledge the support of IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia and BIM for their support in implementing our enterprise development programme and look forward to enhanced co-operation with them in the future. We would also like to thank our former Chairman, Liam Ó Cuinneagáin and former Board members for their commitment and co-operation over the years in the implementation of the organisation’s objectives and look forward to working with the new Údarás Board in 2013.The Donegal GaeltachtA total of 223 new jobs were created in the Donegal Gaeltacht in 2012. There were 1,878 full-time equivalent jobs in Údarás-supported companies in the Donegal Gaeltacht at year end. New jobs were created in companies such as Euroflex Teo and R.A.Pacáistí Teo on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park, Randox Teo in An Clochán Liath and, most substantially, Earagail Éisc in Mín an Aoire in South West Donegal, with an increase of 46 new jobs.When job losses are taken into account, there was a modest net gain of 11 new jobs in the Donegal Gaeltacht.

Development works on the multifunctional Áislann Ghaoth Dobhair building are now complete. Further capital works will begin in the next few months on Aonad 23, previously occupied by Wissmedi, on the Business Park. This redevelopment and upgrade of the building will result in three independent advance enterprise units aimed at attracting enterprises in the medical devices and internationally traded services sectors.During the year, an tÚdarás, in co-operation with the North East Partnership, launched the ‘Innovation and Growth Programme’. Funded by INTERREG IVA, the programme will assist participating businesses in identifying strategic overseas partners and growth potential in international markets.A total of 286 people were employed on social employment schemes in the Donegal Gaeltacht at the end of the year, which are managed and administered by Údarás and funded through the Department of Social Protection.ÚDARÁS ANNOUNCES 11 EXTRA JOBS IN DONEGAL IN 2012 was last modified: January 21st, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ÚDARÁS ANNOUNCES 54 NEW JOBS AT GAOTH DOBHAIR MEETINGlast_img read more

HIGHLAND AGREE TO ‘FIXED FEE’ FOR NEW BINGO GAME WITH DONEGAL HOSPICE

first_imgChairman of the Donegal Hospice Dr James McDaid has said Highland Radio will now only get a fixed fee from a new fundraising venture between the two parties.Chairman of the Donegal Hospice, Dr James McDaid.Chairman of the Hospice, Dr McDaid, today gave evidence in court as he applied for a license for a new bingo game.Dr McDaid revealed that the local radio station will now get a fixed fee for the game which will not exceed 40%. The well-known local GP said there had been previous controversy when Highland had an agreement with Rehab.He said local people were concerned that money being raised locally was not being spent locally.He said the Hospice committee had met with Highland and had come to an agreement.Under the new agreement Highland will get a fixed fee which will not exceed 40% of the first 1,600 bingo books sold. However, he said the Donegal Hospice now hoped to increase the sale of bingo books from 1,600 to 2,500.Dr McDaid also referred to the fact that the Hospice was in “dire need” of financial assistance.Highland ended their association with Rehab on May 2nd.The radio station had applied to the Letterkenny District Court for a bingo license several weeks ago, with the station saying it wanted to earn €52,000-a-year profits from “running costs” and giving the rest to the Donegal Hospice.Judge Paul Kelly had asked radio station director Hazel Russell at a previous hearing to provide a break-down of its proposed figures. He also told her that no more than 40 per cent of cash generated could be spent on administration.Ms Russell revealed the station would charge €25 every time bingo numbers were read out, and this happened eight times per day. This would amount to €1,000 per week – or €52,000 per annum – as bingo was played five times per week.But Ms Russell later returned to the same court to say the license application was being withdrawn.At today’s court sitting, Judge Paul Kelly granted the new license and wished Dr McDaid and the Donegal Hospice the best of luck with the new venture.

MEP HARKIN ‘WALKS ON WATER’ TO SECURE DEAL FOR DONEGAL ORGANIC FARMERS!

first_imgMarian Harkin, MEPThe adoption by the European Parliament’s Agriculture and Rural Development Committee of measures to encourage organic farming in Donegal was very positive for the sector and emphasised the role which an individual MEP could play in influencing EU legislation.This was stated by Independent Marian Harkin who put forward 54 amendments to the present regulations and succeeded in having changes adopted favourable to Irish organic growers….including one with a twist!“My amendments were developed in close consultation with the Irish Organic Farmers & Growers Association and with strong support from my ALDE Group we have delivered a significantly improved basis for the development of organic farming in Ireland throughout the EU”, Marian Harkin said. An accepted Harkin amendment means that in future when Donegal growers were having difficulty in obtaining inputs, such as feed, they can now source it from a distance of 150km which would now include not just the North but Scotland too!“This is in comparison to the Commission’s Draft Report which called for much tighter restrictions for organic growers. This increased distance was achieved by eliminating the stretch of water between Ireland and the UK in the calculation of distance”, she said.The increased use of delegated acts by the European commission had been a constant problem and the changes agreed by the European Parliament had helped to reduce the power the European Commission would have with regard to the implementation of the regulation, Marian Harkin said.She continued:- “The main contentious issue was the proposal by the European Commission to introduce thresholds for pesticide residues on organic farms which might be caused by contamination from other non-organic farms. Thankfully, my amendment to eliminate this penalty on organic farmers was accepted by the Committee. This will allow organic farmers to invest in the sector without the threat of penalties from the European Commission. “The Parliament this week took a very progressive step forward to address many issues which have been inhibiting the growth of organic production to meet the ever increasing demand, and I have been very pleased at the outcome which meets the requirement of Irish growers as individuals and groups. I now hope that the negotiations with the Commission and the Council will take on board the position adopted by the Agriculture Committee”, Independent MEP Marian Harkin concluded.MEP HARKIN ‘WALKS ON WATER’ TO SECURE DEAL FOR DONEGAL ORGANIC FARMERS! was last modified: October 16th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalmarian harkinMEPorganic farmerslast_img read more

Jurgen Klopp reveals what went wrong at Southampton and how Liverpool can fix it

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that he took off Dejan Lovren at half-time in the 3-2 defeat at Southampton because the centre-back had been booked.The Croatian was replaced by Martin Skrtel, making his first appearance since December 20, and the substitute had a torrid second half as Southampton came back from 2-0 down.Skrtel conceded a penalty and struggled with Mamadou Sakho to contain Saints forwards Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane.Asked why he substituted Lovren, who came close to conceding a penalty of his own just before the break, Klopp replied: “His yellow card.“I thought at the end of the first half it looked like the ref was not completely free anymore of the emotion in the stadium.“Maybe he thought later it was a penalty with Dejan Lovren, I don’t know. I thought, ‘we need to change this’.“The first battle, the first challenge in the second half it was clear they would play a lot of long balls to Pelle.“It’s not easy for a centre half [to challenge for these balls] coming out without a yellow card, especially when the ref changed a little bit the mood.”Despite the change, Skrtel gave away a penalty within minutes of coming on.“We lost formation in the second half and we couldn’t avoid these longs balls to Pelle,” said Klopp. “Always he’s fighting for second balls.“If you’re not compact you have the problem that they are back in the game.“When they scored their first goal it was clear something would happen in this game.“[In the] Second half Southampton deserved the three points.”Despite the disappointment of seeing his team throw away a two-goal lead, Klopp was philosophical after the match.“I’m not angry, I’m frustrated because we got nothing for a very good first half.“When you play a very good first half, then not that good second half, for me that sounds like a draw.”According to Klopp, his players need to learn how to adjust their tactics in such situations.“When you saw the situation where we had three players on the left wing and we played short passes, each short pass there was the next invitation for Southampton to win the ball back,” the German coach explained.“When you are in a small space you have to come out, switch the side, and then they have to run, and they have to [try to get a] grab on the game.“They are football mistakes. We have to learn and we will, but today it’s too late because we lost.”last_img read more
