first_imgNew Delhi, Mar 14 (PTI) The inaugural Indian Table Tennis League, originally scheduled to be held in May-June, has been deferred due to the Rio Olympics in August. The Rs one crore prize money league, announced in August last year, will now be held post the Olympics. The event had managed to get a dedicated window on the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) calendar. In August, it was announced that 11EVEN Sports will be the promoters of the league in collaboration with the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI). 11EVEN Sports chief Vita Dani, who is also the co-owner of Indian Super League franchise Chennaiyin FC, said dates of the league will be announced post the Olympics. “We had a possible window available in May-June this year but since it was just ahead of the Rio Olympics, we decided not to pursue as Olympic is a landmark event in any athletes career and we would not want anything to come in way of a players preparations for the world event,” said Dani. “We have planned the world?s first professional franchise based Table Tennis League in India, dates of which will be announced post the Rio Olympics,” she added.

But, for sure, I am enjoying my experience. I’m enjoying to live in this atmosphere and to work with my players. In this aspect I am very happy.”I have another year of my contract and in this case I think the club has to decide to send me away. In football now it’s very difficult to predict if you can stay for many years in one club, especially now in England. Before, the manager – he was in charge for many years. Now all of a sudden you decide to sack the managers earlier.”I’m not surprised [by the rumours] because we are not talking about my work – the history of Chelsea speaks very clear.”For this reason, it’s normal if the press is used to speaking a lot about the managers of Chelsea. It doesn’t change the situation. I don’t ask to change the situation. My only problem is to continue to work and to do a job, be professional and have good results.”I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation.

first_img Pilgrim Surf Supply and Birdwell Beach Britches Just Made the Best New Boardshorts for Summer 7 Tips for Planning the Perfect Last-Minute Summer Vacation Editors’ Recommendations 6 Ways to Cool Down Your Home Without Air Conditioning Pisco Cocktails are the Refreshing Balm You Need for the Dog Days of Summer Now in its third summer season, things are looking good for Ruschmeyer’s. This joint venture from King and Grove hotels and creative director Robert McKinley (of The Surf Lodge fame) has a distinct summer camp vibe to it, which sounds about right considering the original location consisted of one back in 1952. Out on the lawn teepee huts, scattered hammocks and picnic tables encourage the notion this is a playground for adults, not to mention activities like bingo, paddle boarding, yoga, and various musical performances.The nineteen rooms, which are housed in separate cabins allowing for more privacy, are spartan but comfy; white walls, wicker beds, and minibars complete with s’mores kits. A bohemian nautical theme runs throughout the hotel, which is clad in plenty of cedar plank – from the floors, to the walls, to the entrance walkway. Breakfast takes place buffet style at The Nook, whereas this year The Restaurant at Ruschmeyer’s is helmed by the team behind Manhattan’s The Smile, but still serves the best local farm produce and a bonanza of super fresh seafood in a casual diner setting. Don’t miss out on their signature cocktails like the Moscato Crush (waqar pisco, moscato grapes, simple syrup and fresh lemon).It’s a shame the hotel has no beachfront or pool, but the Fort Pond Lake side location makes it a nighttime hotspot. The outdoor beer garden is a good place to kick start the evening with barbecues and rum cocktails, whilst the Electric Eel Disco keeps beats spinning well into the night. Although the hotel is kid friendly the weekend party vibe can leave romantic lovebirds and families with children feeling a little out of place. If you happen to be car-less Ruschmeyer’s has a stylish fleet of green and cream Carrera bicycles guests can venture about in, which is nice, but they charge for their rental, which isn’t so nice.  However it’s the surfing not the cycling that brings the crowds to these parts of Long Island – specifically to Ditch Plains during the summer season, which lasts from May to October.

19 May 2009A United Nations Security Council delegation on a week-long trip to Africa met today with President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a spokesperson for the world body said. “The discussions focused on the security situation in the DRC, security sector reform, the rapprochement between the DRC and Rwanda, as well as the next phase of the mandate of the UN mission in that country,” Marie Okabe told reporters in New York. In a separate meeting with DRC parliamentarians, the Council members discussed human rights, the need to strengthen state authority in all parts of the country and the internal political process, including electoral rules, she added. On Monday the 15-member group visited Kiwanja camp near Goma, in North Kivu province, temporary home to some 13,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have fled conflicts in the area, and was briefed by the military leadership of the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC (MONUC) about the UN-backed operations by the Congolese army to address the problem of foreign and local illegal armed groups. The delegation is now in Liberia where it has scheduled meetings with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, senior UN officials, and members of the Liberian Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The group also plans to visit peacekeepers serving with the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and inspect several UN project sites. The team, which left New York on 14 May, also made stops in Ethiopia and Rwanda. A similar Security Council mission visited Djibouti, Sudan, Chad, DRC and Côte d’Ivoire last June. read more

4 May 2011The United Nations human rights chief today welcomed the newly released report of the commission that probed last year’s inter-ethnic violence in Kyrgyzstan and urged the country’s Government to act quickly on the recommendations. The Kyrgyzstan Inquiry Commission (KIC) recommended that the Government carry out further investigations and prosecute those responsible for the violence that claimed the lives of an estimated 470 people in June 2010.“This report should give considerable impetus to Kyrgyzstan’s efforts to combat impunity and address issues of accountability after the inter-ethnic strife in the southern part of the country last summer,” said Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, in a press release.The KIC, headed by former Finnish parliamentarian Kimmo Kiljunen, published its detailed report yesterday.“There can be no lasting reconciliation without justice, and I believe this report sets out a viable pathway to achieving both,” said Ms. Pillay.She commended Kyrgyz President Roza Otunbaeva for initiating the independent inquiry and noted the detailed comments on the report by the Government.“This is the first time that an international commission of inquiry has been established in a Central Asian State,” said Ms. Pillay. “And I understand it was given unimpeded access to carry out its work properly.‘It is important that the Government, at both national and local levels, carries out the essential follow-up in the same spirit, which, given the nature of the work to be done – namely establishing individual criminal responsibility – will require courage and determination,” she added.The report notes that some 1,900 people were injured, more than 400,000 displaced, and an unknown number of women subjected to sexual violence, amid widespread looting and destruction of property. The majority of the victims were ethnic Uzbeks, but ethnic Kyrgyz also suffered significant losses, according to the report.Ms. Pillay welcomed the Government’s announcement that it intends to set up a special commission to implement and monitor the implementation of the recommendations of the KIC report and other reports on the violence.She said was ready to assist the Government in a variety of ways through her office in the country’s capital, Bishkek, and in close cooperation with international and regional partners.The assistance would be in the form of rebuilding and strengthening rule of law institutions; making the rule of law more accessible, equitable and effective to ensure the promotion and protection of human rights; and enabling the development of a more tolerant and inclusive society in Kyrgyzstan. read more

“We have usually heard of millionaires and billionaires. But we believe Rajapakse is a trillionaire,” he said. Rajapakse was defeated by current President Maithripala Sirisena during a Presidential Election held in January and has since been the focus of a corruption probe by the new Sri Lankan government. The Government today accused former president Mahinda Rajapakse of having assets running into the trillions which he had allegedly acquired when he was in power.Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said that intelligence agencies had gathered information related to Rajapakse’s assets during investigations conducted following the January 8 polls. He said that initially the proposal was to fully abolish the executive presidential system. However following some objections, constitutional reforms were implemented limiting the Presidential powers instead of fully abolishing it.Samaraweera further said that following the next parliamentary elections, the ruling United National Party hopes to introduce more constitutional reforms with the support of the entire parliament. (Colombo Gazette) Samaraweera noted that the January election was democratic and contrary to earlier fears that an Arab style revolution had been planned to overthrow the former regime.Meanwhile Samaraweera also noted that constitutional reforms recently passed by the local parliament did not meet the full expectations of the public. read more

Those announcements add to other commitments made over the past year by PeaceHealth, FarWest, BHP Billiton and others. But it will take months or years before all the promised jobs arrive. Meanwhile, local leaders are examining policies and looking for ways to strengthen Southwest Washington’s economy for the long run. The Columbia River Economic Development Council’s first economic plan in a decade, released in June, surveyed the local challenges and concluded: “It is clear that Clark County’s economic development partners cannot afford to be anything but aggressive.”To achieve success, the county will need to develop a distinctive business identity, and the multitude of ports, city and county governments, and economic development interests will need to work together for the greater good of the entire county, the plan concluded. The county should develop business niches and work with Washington State University Vancouver to create a business-oriented research park, which could require some form of new taxes, it said.If the consultants who were commissioned to study Clark County’s economy are right, their recommendations could help next time economic doldrums hit. But it will take years of hard work to bring about those big changes. And it’s not clear who will be leading those efforts. Bart Phillips left his longtime position with the Columbia River Economic Development Council, a nonprofit that has been one of the county’s most prominent advocates for business growth. A new east county economic development group could spur job creation in Camas and Washougal, as long as it cooperates with the CREDC, instead of competing.last_img read more

first_imgAfter a summer of long Chinook salmon closures and a weak chum run on the Kuskokwim river, middle and upper river subsistence fishermen eagerly await word about whether the federal government will take control of the fishery.Download AudioThe Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage is preparing to present the Federal Subsistence Board with a recommendation on whether to federalize the salmon fishery, which is currently under state control.Evelyn Thomas is the Tribal Council President in Crooked Creek, a community of about 100 people located upriver from Bethel. She says her tribal council plans to pass a resolution in support of federalization. She says the state has not listened.“They keeping wanting to have [commercial] openings for silvers and late chum run when we haven’t even gotten enough, subsistence users don’t have fish yet, I know here in Crooked Creek, nobody has enough,” said Thomas.Gene Peltola Junior is Assistant Regional Director for the federal Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage.They’re currently responding to a growing number of resolutions from tribes and groups who want to ensure they get silver salmon. His team is in the early stages of drafting a recommendation based on current and historic data on silver salmon.“There may not necessarily be an allocation between the federally qualified users aspect of it, that’s one part we’re determining now, we may not have a full 804 determination or analysis,” said Peltola Junior.That refers to section 804 of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, or ANILCA, that determines how to distribute a resource that isn’t abundant enough for all subsistence users. His office went through a similar process this spring after the Napaskiak Traditional Council asked that federal managers limit Chinook harvest to Kuskokwim residents and make an allocation strategy.Peltola was not clear about what a federal takeover could mean for the controversial commercial openings, and simply pointed to ANILCA. Both federal and state law include subsistence priorities. The state is expecting a below average coho run and an above average subsistence demand.Any federal action would apply to just refuge waters, from the mouth to Aniak.More and more silver salmon are showing up in the Bethel Test Fishery, and time is short on any potential action. Peltola Junior does not have a firm timeline.“Fisheries issues are very complex, we’re not dragging our feet whatsoever, but we are taking the appropriate time to come up with a reasonable and appropriate proposal to the Federal Subsistence Board for their consideration,” said Peltola Junior.The federal subsistence board has a work session for next week. Peltola says he doubts they’ll take up the issue at that meeting and it could take more time to issue a decision.last_img read more
