Jose Mourinho Stadium Ban: Chelsea boss could challenge FA decision

first_img1 Jose Mourinho could yet challenge the Football Asscoiation ban that will see him miss Chelsea’s game against Stoke City on Saturday.The Blues boss’ fractious relationship with the FA deteriorated further on Thursday as he failed in his appeal against a suspended one-match stadium ban and £50,000 fine.The self-proclaimed Special One was sanctioned for implying match officials were biased against the Premier League champions in comments made following the October 3 loss to Southampton.It was a charge he rejected, but his appeal was thrown out, the FA announced on Thursday.Chelsea are understood to be disappointed with the appeal failing and are still mulling over whether to challenge the punishment which forbids Mourinho from entering the Britannia Stadium this weekend.The Blues are still to pore over the written reasons before making the decision.The ban was imposed following his half-time dismissal at West Ham last month.The Blues boss “admitted an FA charge of misconduct regarding his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area” at Upton Park and was fined £40,000 alongside the stadium ban.Only if Chelsea appeal against that penalty will Mourinho, who is slated to speak to the media on Friday lunchtime, be permitted to enter the Britannia Stadium or surrounding area on matchday.YOU CAN LISTEN TO LIVE AND EXCLUSIVE NATIONAL RADIO COMMENTARY OF STOKE v CHELSEA ONLY ON talkSPORT FROM 5.3Opm ON SATURDAY Jose Mourinho last_img read more

PARENTS OF KILLED DONEGAL GIRL FOUND CORONER’S COMMENTS OFFENSIVE, COURT HEARS

first_imgTHE parents of a Letterkenny girl killed in a road accident found a coroner’s comments at her inquest “deeply offensive”, the High Court has heard.The case was settled yesterday after a statement was read in court stating the coroner’s comments did not form part of the verdict into the teen’s death or have any legal effect.Malachy and Marie Hegarty brought the action against Co Donegal coroner John Cannon. It followed the jury’s verdict at the inquest on April 21, 2009, of their daughter Laura’s death from head and chest injuries associated with a road traffic accident.The parents claimed Mr Cannon expressed his concern at Laura’s blood-alcohol reading and he also said this was another death attributable to alcohol and a road traffic accident.The Hegartys, of College Farm Road, were deeply upset and angered by the coroner’s rider as they claimed it attributed civil liability to, and blamed Laura, 18, for, the accident.While it was accepted that Laura had consumed alcohol on the night, they argued her death had nothing to do with the consumption of alcohol. The family’s solicitor asked Mr Cannon to withdraw his remarks, which it was claimed he failed to do. As a result, they initiated High Court proceedings.Mr Cannon, in a statement of opposition, said his comments were of a general nature, had no legal status, and did not form part of the jury’s verdict. He denied his comments attributed any civil liability or censure of Laura in connection with her death.He also expressed his sincere sympathy to the family and his regret for any offence caused.When the matter came before the president of the High Court Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns, he was told the Hegartys’ action had been resolved.As part of the settlement, a declaration was read in court stating that Mr Cannon’s remarks at the conclusion of the inquest “do not form part of the verdict or the rider, nor do they have any legal effect”.Laura died after being struck by a car at New Line Road, Letterkenny, as she walked home on March 18, 2007, after celebrating St Patrick’s Day. A local man was subsequently jailed for five months after admitting being the driver of the car that struck her.PARENTS OF KILLED DONEGAL GIRL FOUND CORONER’S COMMENTS OFFENSIVE, COURT HEARS was last modified: January 21st, 2012 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)last_img read more

Delight as restoration works to ancient church in Fahan unveiled

first_imgA local county councillor has congratulated a local community group following the completion of restoration works to St Mura’s Church last week. Cllr Jack Murray said the site was of “huge historical significance” with works to restore the 7th Century St Mura’s Cross ongoing.St Mura’s Cross is an ancient and unique carved cross-slab in Fahan, County Donegal but it was in danger of being completely eroded and the church gable next to it was crumbling. Sinn Fein’s Cllr Jack Murray, Cllr Albert Doherty and Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn at the site in FahanThe patron saint of the Cineál Eoghain including the Uí Neill who were among the High Kings of Ireland, St Mura died in 645 at the age of 94.The cross was erected in his memory and is now one of the oldest in Ireland and is the only one to bear an inscription of The Gloria written in ancient Greek.The gable wall dates back to 1608 but contains stones from the original monastery of St Mura.Proceeds from several events have be donated to the Save St Mura’s Cross Fahan project, which is dedicated to the conservation of the site of St Mura’s early Christian monastery, particularly the 7th-century cross. Speaking to Donegal Daily, Cllr Jack Murray said: Delighted to be in Fahan for the celebration of the completion of the restoration works at St Mura’s Church, with ongoing works to restore the 7th Century St Mura’s Cross.As a site of huge historical significance, it’s brilliant to see such a positive initiative here.“Fair play to everybody involved in making it happen.”Delight as restoration works to ancient church in Fahan unveiled was last modified: November 11th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:FahanSt Mura’s Crosslast_img read more

Favourable RWC draw for Springboks

first_imgThe general consensus is that the draw has been kind to South Africa, but the Boks, assuming they qualify, will face a tough quarterfinal clash against one of Australia, England or Wales. The only other team to win the World Cup, and the only northern hemisphere champions, were England in 2003. “Our aim was to be in the first band of teams and we achieved that, moving from fourth at the start of the year to second in the IRB world rankings,” said Meyer. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Joining those three teams in Pool B will be the top team from Asia, most likely to be Japan, and another side from the Americas. The Springboks have been drawn with Samoa and Scotland in Pool B for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, which takes place in England. It’s the fourth time in succession that South Africa and Samoa have been drawn in the same pool. The draw took place in London on Monday. In their most recent clash, at the 2011 World Cup, the Boks held off a stiff challenge from the Samoans, winning 13-5, while they beat the Scots by 11 points in a tough encounter on their recent tour of the northern hemisphere. The current International Rugby Board (IRB) world rankings see South Africa in second place, with Samoa ranked seventh and Scotland twelfth. France is the top seed in Pool D. They will face Ireland, Italy, and teams from the Americas and Europe. During recent tours of the northern hemisphere, South Africa remained unbeaten, but had to fight for their victories, beating Ireland 16-12, Scotland 21-10 and England 16-15. Australia’s results included a 33-6 thrashing at the hands of France, and New Zealand were thumped 38-21 by England. “As I said before the draw was made, to us it doesn’t matter who we are drawn against, because to win the World Cup, you have to beat the best teams out there.” “There really is very little to choose between the top sides in the world, while the next batch of teams has also improved a lot recently.” Gap has closed“If ever there was testimony that the gap between the top teams have closed, we saw that over the past month in the northern hemisphere,” Meyer commented. SatisfiedSpringbok coach Heyneke Meyer attended the draw at the Tate Modern and afterwards declared himself satisfied with the pool allocation. England, Australia and South Africa have lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy away from home. Both of New Zealand’s titles were won in New Zealand. Pool C features defending champions New Zealand, Argentina, Tonga, as well as a team from Europe and another from Africa. World Cup winnersSouth Africa has won the Rugby World Cup twice previously, in 1995 and 2007. Australia, with World Cup titles in 1991 and 1999, is also a two-time winner, as is New Zealand, the 2011 champions and winners of the inaugural World Cup in 1987. 4 December 2012 PoolsThose three teams are in Pool A – which has quickly been dubbed the “Pool of Death” – along with a qualifier from Oceania and the winners of a playoff.last_img read more

Cities combat climate change

first_imgPublic transport is the best solution to reduce carbon emissions.(Image: Mediaclubsouthafrica.com)MEDIA CONTACTS • Brett HerronCouncillor: Cape Town Municipality+27 21 400 1384.• Quathar JacobsMedia Officer: WWF, South Africa+27 21 657 6600.Sulaiman PhilipThe city of Cape Town monitors sea levels and has begun education and awareness programmes highlighting the effects of raised ocean levels. In Johannesburg, the city is implementing a programme to harness the methane produced in landfills as a green energy source.Both municipalities are also improving their mass transit systems. They have identified traffic congestion and its contribution to carbon emissions as one area in which they can make inroads to help prevent climate change in the medium term.These initiatives and other green programmes have put the cities in the running to be named the Global Earth Hour Capital. The WWF Earth Hour Challenge highlights and rewards municipalities that have enacted substantial and long-term programmes to combat climate change. Of the six South African cities eligible to participate – Johannesburg, Cape Town, eThekwini, Tshwane, Buffalo City and Nelson Mandela Bay – the first three have uploaded data on carbonn Cities Climate Registry (cCCR).Morné du Plessis, the chief executive of WWF-SA, the South African branch of the World Wildlife Fund, says that South African municipalities understand the need to plan and work towards a low carbon future. “Every disclosure of carbon emissions is an achievement, every project is a ray of hope, every reduction is a celebration and every entry to the challenge is a bold step towards a better present and brighter future,” he said in September.The cities have till 14 October to report their urban development plans designed to improve living standards and make their city greener. These policies will be evaluated by an international jury and the winner will be announced in March 2014.Green MapWhen eThekwini hosted COP17 in 2012, it joined 850 communities in 65 countries by developing a Green Map, the most high-profile and interactive of the municipalities’ programmes. It has also been the most active South African municipality in terms of registering its greenhouse gas emissions and reporting its adaptation and mitigation plans. But Derek Morgan, the head of the city’s energy unit, stresses that being named Global Earth Hour Capital is not the motivation behind the city’s participation. “We are at a point where we simply must do everything we can to slow down global warming. Change can happen most effectively at a local level.”The WWF has put cities at the forefront of attempts to combat climate change for two reasons: firstly, they are responsible for 70% of greenhouse gas emissions; and secondly, it’s easier for municipalities than governments to make concrete policy that will help to halt the effects of climate change. In a report released at the end of September 2013, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calculated that the amount of carbon in the atmosphere must not exceed a trillion tonnes. Beyond that figure, they hypothesize, the effects of climate change become more devastating. In the last 300 years, 570 billion tons of greenhouse gases, or 57 percent of the total, have been released into the atmosphere.Economic growth of developing economies, especially in South Africa and its Brics partners – Brazil, Russia, India and China – could result in about 330 billion tons of CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere by 2040. This will bring the planet closer to the critical level that will cause a 2°C increase in global temperatures. A two degree climb in global temperatures would cause crop failures and increase the size of deserts, melt glaciers and raise sea levels.Mayors SummitIn February 2014, Johannesburg will host the C40 Mayors Summit. C40 is a network of 58 of the world’s largest cities that have made a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They share expertise on climate risk and the impact of change locally and globally. With over 10 million trees and 2 000 developed parks, Johannesburg is the greenest South African city, according to a December 2012 study conducted by Siemens. The study, African Green City Index, compared 15 major cities in 11 African countries to provide insight into the strengths and weaknesses of local government responses to climate change.The four South African cities studied – Johannesburg, Cape Town, eThekwini and Tshwane – along with Accra, Tunis and Casablanca, scored average or above average in the eight categories measured: energy and CO2, land use, transport, waste, water, sanitation, air quality, and environmental governance.Climate modelling by the city of Johannesburg suggests that temperatures in the region will rise by 2.3°C by 2056 if no action is taken to solve the problems facing the area. The municipality’s dependence on coal generated electricity, urban sprawl and congestion, high water consumption and low rates of recycling remain challenges.Development roadmapExecutive Mayor Parks Tau, speaking at the launch of the study, said these challenges were taken into account and with input from its international and local partners, it drew up the Joburg 2040 Growth and Development Plan as the municipality’s development roadmap. “We are faced with a formidable challenge but it is easier because we know the route forward. We can learn lessons from our partners to make our city and infrastructure more resilient.”Over the next two years the city, in partnership with Siemens, will create 500 green jobs. “These will be people employed directly by the city to, for example, plant trees. However, by 2020 we foresee 30 000 new green jobs in the fields of renewable energy, building retrofits, recycling, water and waste management.” These were jobs in industries that did not exist today but by taking climate action, South African cities would be able to raise the living standards of its citizens by creating economic opportunity, the mayor explained.Paul Kielstra, a contributing editor at the Economist Intelligence Unit and the head of the study, said climate challenge solutions provided an opportunity for Johannesburg to create jobs in new industries. “Climate change is an opportunity masquerading as a crisis. Governments need to take the lead in jumpstarting this next economy. By laying the foundation for a green industrial future now, South African municipalities are building wealthier and healthier futures.”last_img read more

Natural gas and energy prices expected to stay low

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It is likely that prices of natural gas — now at their lowest in two decades — will be even lower during the home heating season next winter, Purdue University energy economist Wally Tyner says.In another good sign for low energy costs for consumers, Tyner also expects gasoline prices to stay in the range of $2 to $2.50 a gallon for much of 2016.Consumers already are seeing lower heating bills this winter even before the recent price drop. Tyner said that while the price of natural gas in December is the lowest it has been since 1994, consumers won’t see the full benefit of that in their gas bills this winter. That is because most of the natural gas that will be delivered this winter has already been contracted.“However, it likely means that home heating costs will fall more next winter,” he said.Tyner lists several “supply-and-demand drivers” that are keeping the price of natural gas so low:• Natural gas is produced from both conventional and shale oil and gas formations, so the “fracking” boom has led to large supply increases of natural gas.• The large supply increase has been faster than the rate of demand increase, so price has come down. Also, there is little international trade in natural gas, so the export market is quite limited.• While the low price has discouraged additional drilling for natural gas, oil and gas drilling efficiency has increased tremendously the past 2 to 3 years.• Normally, natural gas is put in storage in summer months, and the stored gas is used over the winter months. This year, however, so far the winter has been abnormally warm. Natural gas storage facilities are approaching full capacity, and limited additional storage is putting tremendous downward pressure on prices.Tyner noted that natural gas is used not only by many consumers for home heating but also by industry for process heat and to generate electricity.“Changes in natural gas prices, therefore, ripple widely through the economy,” he said.For gasoline, Tyner explained that price prospects depend mainly on what happens to the price of crude oil. Crude oil briefly was about $32 per barrel in December 2008 and January 2009. Today, it is about $35. He said forecasts for crude prices for 2016 range from falling to about $20 to increasing to $60 or more.“My sense is that we are near the bottom for crude oil and that it will remain relatively low for much of 2016,” he said.last_img read more

My wandering thoughts on facial recognition software for dairy cows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Recently I read the headline: “Cargill, Cainthus partner to bring facial recognition technology to dairy farms” (Feedstuffs, Jan. 31, 2018). Wow! Reading a cow’s face? I can think of nothing more stoic or poker-faced than a cow. That must be some software.Then I read further and learned that this new software — machine vision software — recognizes each cow’s hide pattern and facial shape. Cainthus, the Dublin, Ireland-based developer of the software, has developed algorithms to track cows’ key data traits such as ruminations, water and feed intake, time spent lying, standing or walking, and body temperature to flag exactly how each cow in a herd is doing.The software also predicts when a cow is in heat, even if she has no visible signs. Combine this information with milk production data and voila! Everything a dairyman needs to know about his herd is available on his smartphone or computer.And if software that identifies the face of one cow from another isn’t enough to blow your mind, Cainthus plans to extend this technology to poultry and fish farms.Doesn’t that sound far out? Recognizing one chicken from another! Or better yet, telling fish apart. I hope they made the machine waterproof.Then I let my imagination run wild. Hard to believe, right? What if this face recognition technology could be adapted to monitor spouses? I’ll have to admit, I’m often clueless about picking up on my wife Kris’s state from one moment to the next. This could save my hide, despite myself.Think how much easier it would be to have at your fingertips on your smartphone, technology that could give you a high degree of confidence in knowing your spouse’s degree of approachability — in real time — on any number of subjects.For instance:First thing in the morning, I could get an instant read on Kris’s mood, to get off on the right foot, and keep it out of my mouth.Check a bar graph on my cell phone to determine the best time to tell Kris about the pickup I bought.Sync with Kris’s Fit-Bit to see if she slept well the night before, not that I can’t figure that out the old-fashioned way.See if the time is right to ask her if it’s OK to go fishing or hunting, to a ballgame or check out a farm sale.Know when the timing is right for … well, you know….Advanced warning when it’s better to be out of sight as in “out of sight and out of mind”.As I read the Feedstuffs article I also thought that the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) should use this software at airports. I would no longer need a passport. This could be problematic for Kris, though, depending on whether she had put her “face” on or was going au natural.On further reflection, and before I cause myself further harm, I think it would be wise to leave well enough alone. No trying to read Kris’s mind…. I should just do what I’m told. Life’s more peaceful that way.last_img read more
