RORY MCILROY HAS ended the long-running debate over his Olympic status and finally declared his intention to represent Ireland in Rio.Bookmakers immediately made him a 7/1 shot to bring home a gold medal for Ireland in 2016.“I’m very happy with my decision,” McIlroy said this afternoon. “I just thought it was the right thing to do.”The two-time Major winner from Hollywood, County Down, is also eligible to play for Great Britain and his decision had been the subject of much speculation ahead of golf’s Olympic return in two years’ time.As recently as a few months ago McIlroy said he was still undecided, and the 25-year-old also previously suggested that he might opt out completely to avoid offending one team or the other.“It’s a continuation of what I’ve always done,” he announced at Cork’s Fota Island Golf Club where the Irish Open begins tomorrow.“I played my junior and boys golf for Ireland. I played my amateur golf for Ireland. Just because I’m getting paid to play this great game now doesn’t mean I should change that. I’m very happy with my decision. It means I can actually look forward to the Olympics now in a couple of years’ time — if I qualify for the team obviously. He added: “I think there’s a little bit of relief. I was always worried about what other people would think when actually it’s your decision at the end of the day.“You have to take ownership of it and you have to be comfortable with it. Ultimately that was the decision that I was most comfortable with and the decision that I wanted to make.” Cork hurling goalkeeper Anthony Nash was in action at the Irish Open pro-am today.

Now I’m really looking forward to Rio in 2016.” McIlroy raised the Ireland flag at the 2007 Walker Cup.

The top 15 players will automatically secure a place (to a maximum of four per country) while the remaining 45 places will be allocated to the highest-ranked remaining players (max two per country).As things stand McIlroy and Graeme McDowell — sixth and 22nd in the world respectively — would make up the Irish team while Padraig Harrington, Shane Lowry and others would miss out.McIlroy and McDowell twice flew the Irish flag at golf’s World Cup in 2009 and again in 2011.“When I actually sat down and thought about it and had a little bit of time to myself, it wasn’t [a difficult decision],” McIlroy said. “It’s what I’ve always done as a boy and as an amateur.“I’ve always played for Ireland and my ambition was always to make the Irish team. Whether that was a six-man team for the European Championships or the home international 11-man team, that was always my goal. McIlroy and McDowell teamed up to represent Ireland at the 2009 and 2011 World Cups.

I’ve got a lot of friends that play for Ulster and would say they’re Northern Irish but are very proud to pull on that green jersey, as I will be in a couple of years time.”

Two security agents including Szydlo’s driver were also injured, one of them suffering serious leg injuries.Szydlo underwent medical tests in a local hospital before being transported in the evening by helicopter to a military hospital in Warsaw.She had met with Enda Kenny on Thursday in the Polish capital to discuss Ireland’s ‘special’ role post-Brexit, something she was unwilling to provide official support for.Government spokesman Rafal Bochenek told reporters the prime minister was still in hospital “under observation” and the duration of her stay would “depend on the specialists”.“She is being well looked after. She can carry out her role, she can fulfil her obligations as head of the government,” Bochenek said.He refused to specify the nature of medical tests undergone by the 53-year-old or confirm if she would preside over the weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday.She feels well although she is not completely back to normal after being involved in an accident.Szydlo was wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash.The Fiat’s driver has admitted responsibility for the accident and has been charged with causing “bodily damage in a road accident”. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison.Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the powerful head of Szydlo’s right wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, had told supporters at an event last night the premier was “seriously hurt” in the accident.“We’re with you Beata and we’re sure that after a brief stay in hospital, you’ll be back with us again leading the government,” he said.Additional reporting Cianan Brennan© – AFP, 2017Read: ‘It’s killing people’s minds’: Apple boss Tim Cook on ‘fake news’Read: Here are all the companies that have cut ties with the Trump family 19 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3234497 Polish Prime Minister in ‘stable condition’ in hospital following serious car accident 53-year-old Beata Szydlo met with Enda Kenny to discuss Ireland’s post-Brexit future on Thursday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted he has a selection problem for the weekend game against Brighton at Anfield.With the likes of Fabinho, Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and Nathaniel Clyne all pushing for a start, Klopp is finding it difficult to name his starting XI.But the Reds boss revealed that Dejan Lovren is still not close to a return for this weekend’s visit of Brighton as he struggles with a stomach muscle injury. “ I don’t think it makes sense to stick to a team only because we won.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“That’s the most important thing, but we have quality in the squad, and there can be different reasons to change the line-up, so that’s possible of course.“Dejan is coming closer, but he’s not really around team training at the moment. He will not be involved in the game; I’m pretty sure no chance for the Leicester game and then, hopefully, after the international break, he will be ready to go.“That would be nice. That was actually the target from the first day when he was in, and we knew about his problems. We thought, ‘Okay, if we can give him that time, then that would be cool.”
N’Golo Kante has confirmed that he could have joined PSG during the summer after he’d won the World Cup but wanted to remain at Chelsea.Kante who was the 2016-17 PFA Player of the Year joined Chelsea from Leicester City after they won the Premier League title following a £32 million deal.Kante admitted that Chelsea and PSG had made contact over him but he was more interested in remaining at Chelsea.“There was no particular desire to go somewhere after the World Cup,” Kante told RMC Sport, according to Sunday Express.“There were other clubs’ interests but after talking to Chelsea, things were clear.“The club is counting on me and I feel good.PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“The next logical step was to continue with Chelsea.“There was some contact with PSG, yes.“However, after a discussion with the club, I realised that the main thing for me was to feel good where I was then and am now.“I am with Chelsea – staying with Chelsea is good for me.”
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Jamaica, October 23, 2016 – North East St. Catherine Member of Parliament, Leslie Campbell, has called for a revision of the law which entitles individuals to take possession of land owned by other persons, after 12 years of occupation.Under the Limitation of Actions Act, any individual having legal entitlement to land is prohibited from recovering possession after 12 years of occupation by other persons, without previous recovery efforts being made. Mr. Campbell, who was making his 2016 Constituency Debate presentation in the House of Representatives recently, is of the view that this principle is a disadvantage to legal land owners.This, particularly where “adverse possession” resulting from squatting occurred during the 12-year period, he further stated. “You can move onto a man’s parcel of land (when) he has (for example) gone to visit his relatives abroad, and he’s (possibly away) for 12 years. Through some legislative sleight of hand, or otherwise, what (do) we say to that man when he (has) returned to his land…‘you have lost it’?” the Member of Parliament noted.In light of this, he urged that a decision be taken that “we are going to outlaw that provision so that it doesn’t impact on our rural people (in particular).” Meanwhile, Mr. Campbell said plans are in place to develop an agro-based economic programme in North East St. Catherine, which has a population of approximately 30,000.This, he explained, will result in job creation while ultimately improving the constituents’ quality of life. “If we are going to drive economic growth in our rural communities, we must, at best, decide whether or not we are going to give these persons access to credit; and the best way to do so, for rural folks, is to give them titles for their lands,” he said.Mr. Campbell also urged State agencies, such as the National Water Commission (NWC), to put the necessary infrastructure in place “to support the people in their quest for a better life.” Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 23, 2016 – My fellow Turks and Caicos Islanders, it is a privilege and honor to have been voted into office by you, the people of this great country. I am humbled by the outpouring of support, love and good will offered to My Government by you the people of our beautiful by nature islands. Likewise, I am grateful to the many residents and visitors to our shores who have expressed their desire to work peacefully towards improving our country during my time in office. I am thankful to all of you.However, none of this would be possible without the guidance, protection, mercy and grace of Almighty God who has forever kept our people and country in his hands. He has brought us through an election season safely with peace and order. I thank God for his blessings on you the people of our beloved country.The transfer of power and authority is now complete. My party, the PDM, successfully won the General Elections by securing 10 out of 15 electoral seats on December 15th. Although the timing of Elections interrupted the normal Christmas preparations it is my hope that today, with the little time left before Christmas Day, that all of you would accept my heartiest best and warm wishes for you in this festive season. There is no doubt in this country that Christ is still the reason for the season. And I join with my fellow believers and celebrating his birth. But, just as Christmas brings renewed hope and the promise of salvation so too must a new Government offer hope for a better tomorrow for its people.My aim this evening is to guide you through the immediate plans and decisions of My party and your Government.My Deputy Premier, Hon. Sean Astwood and other ministers including Hon. Goldray Ewing, Hon. Delroy Williams, Hon. Josephine Connolly, Hon. Edwin Astwood, and Hon. Ralph Higgs were sworn into Office on December 20th and immediately they began the work of my Government. The Change Document, an essential guide to what my Government intends to accomplish in this term of office, has been delivered to every Government PS and heads of departments. We intend to fulfill our campaign promises to you the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands.Douglas Parnell will work out of my Office in Providenciales and Hon. Derek Taylor will work out of my Office in Grand Turk. The task of delivering change for this Government is monumental, so they both will work closely with me to help bring about these changes and have been given special assignments and will report to me.Briefings were held by all Ministers on the state of Government affairs. I will be making a more complete statement on this in the New Year.Ministers will split duties between the Nations Capital and Providenciales.I can report that some immediate financial decisions will have to be taken to avoid a crisis at the NHIB. Our people’s health is our number one priority and we will spare nothing to ensure they are well cared for.Swearing in of the House of Assembly will take place on December 29th at 10.00am.Thanks Giving ceremonies around the Islands will continue to take place throughout the holidays and New Year.Members of the our party should feel proud of the fact that the campaign you supported was embraced by a great majority of the people. Equally important however, is that supporters and members of the other parties should know that now is the time for unity in our country. The campaign is over and we must return to the awesome task of nation building. I encourage you to join with me as we prepare ourselves to enter this New Year with a new Government.The process of electioneering is not easy. It is tough, believe me, I have been involved in a few. It is tough because many old wounds get reopened and political battle lines are drawn with numerous attacks by each side to try and win the hearts and minds of you the voting public. Those wounds need to heal now, and so we invite you, our opponents, into a period of bandaging up the proverbial battle scars so that the healing can begin. And what better time to heal than now, when we can forget about politics and focus on the One who is Greater than all- Jesus the Christ child.The Nation is calling us, politicians and public servants to rise above bickering and bitterness and to escape the fray and provide a path to growth and opportunity, hope and joy and success. My party campaigned on these tenets and won the hearts and minds of the people as evidenced by the votes at the ballot box. And so, we respectfully ask all of you to allow my Government a period to set the course and put the ship of state in the right direction.The people felt for too long that it had lost touch with the Government and our people cried out that enough was enough and that it was time for a change. That change is finally here. I wish to personally extend my warmest greetings to you all for Christmas best wishes for the New Year.

WASHINGTON — Facing calls to resign, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said Thursday that he hopes to have a preliminary report within three weeks on how widespread treatment delays and falsified patient scheduling reports are at VA facilities nationwide, following allegations that up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix VA center.Shinseki resisted calls from a Democratic senator to bring in the Justice Department and FBI for a criminal investigation. Shinseki said he first wanted to see results of the audit and a report on the VA inspector general’s office on its investigation of the Phoenix hospital.Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said there appears to “solid evidence of wrongdoing within the VA system” that could be criminal.“It’s a pattern and practice, apparently, of manipulating lists and gaming the system — in effect, cooking the books, creating false records,” Blumenthal said, adding that the VA’s inspector general lacked the proper resources to pursue a criminal investigation.“The more I learn about the misconduct and impropriety at the VA medical facility, the more concerned I am there’s evidence of criminal wrongdoing,” said Blumenthal, a former state attorney general and federal prosecutor.Shinseki said he is “mad as hell” over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at a Phoenix veterans hospital and vowed to hold employees accountable for any misconduct.
The anti-satellite missile test was carried out to verify India’s capability to safeguard space assets. Representative imageIndia on Wednesday, March 27, demonstrated its capability to interdict and intercept a satellite in outer space to join an exclusive group of space-faring nations consisting of the US, Russia and China.Experts in America have said that India has a long way to go when it comes to ensuring space security after it successfully test-fired an anti-satellite missile by shooting down a live satellite. The test made India a space superpower, the fourth country in the world to acquire the strategic capability to shoot down enemy satellites.Ashley J Tellis, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace who holds the Tata Chair for Strategic Affairs, said ever since China’s A-SAT missile test of 2007, India had been contemplating its own A-SAT test primarily to deter potential Chinese attacks on Indian space assets in the future. That aim arguably has been satisfied today, but India still has a long way to go where ensuring space security is concerned.”China has formidable counter space capabilities and Indian space systems are still highly vulnerable both in peacetime and in conflict. Yesterday’s A-SAT test does not alter this basic reality,” Tellis told news agency PTI.Vipin Narang, an associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that the test is unlikely to make any changes to the balance of power in the region. And as such it is more of a demonstration.”If Pakistan starts hitting Indian satellites, India can knock out Pakistan”s very few satellites. China can knock out all of India’s satellites whereas India cannot do the same to China. So it’s kind of a weird balance for India if it’s interested in getting into the anti-satellite deterrence game (because) it doesn’t really have an advantage in either of its dyads,” Narang told Wired Magazine.Daryl G Kimball of the Arms Control Association think-tank in a tweet described this as a dangerous and destabilising move. “A dangerous & destabilizing move. Underscores need for a global A-SAT ban. US gov’t silence is deafening, given its negative reaction to China’s ”07 tests,” he said.Daniel Porras, Space Security Fellow at the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), said that there is a need to have A-SAT guidelines, in particular about the debris.”A strong Indian military is an important American interest and space is increasingly a contested arena for political-military competition,” Benjamin Schwartz from USIBC told PTI. In New Delhi, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said the test was done in the lower atmosphere to ensure there is no space debris.”Whatever debris that is generated will decay and fall back onto the earth within weeks,” it said. The MEA came out with a 10-point explainer to say the anti-satellite missile test was carried out to verify India’s capability to safeguard space assets and that it was not directed against any country. It also said in a statement that India has no intention of entering into an arms race in outer space.”We have always maintained that space must be used only for peaceful purposes. We are against the weaponisation of Outer Space and support international efforts to reinforce the safety and security of space-based assets,” the MEA clarified.(Inputs from agencies)

REUTERS/Rupak de ChowdhuriThe largest lender in India State Bank of India (SBI) is planning to raise almost $3 billion from the international financial markets on issuing green bonds that will boost eco-friendly projects for development in the country.SBI will tap on finance companies like BlackRock, International Finance Corp and JP Morgan-backed entities for funding projects that will help government to move towards more sustainable growth in future, Economic Times reported.The biggest government-owned bank is already in the process of appointing investment bankers who will play a significant role in raising money for the dedicated fund in a few instalments over one or two quarters. Investor demand for the instruments will decide the timing and issue size for each instalment, sources told the Economic Times.Sources also told that roadshows for the bond issue will likely begin in the next few weeks and cover global financial centres such as London.The Green Bond MarketGreen bonds are gaining popularity because most of the major economies around the world are planning to invest on projects that are environment-friendly.

Prothom Alo, in cooperation with the international non-government organisation Swisscontact, organised the roundtable titled ‘Role of skilled paramedics in the healthcare sector of Bangladesh.’Discussants at a roundtable on Wednesday urged the authorities concerned to increase job opportunities for community paramedics (CP).Prothom Alo, in cooperation with the international non-government organisation Swisscontact, organised the roundtable titled ‘Role of skilled paramedics in the healthcare sector of Bangladesh.’Speaking at the roundtable, Swisscontact country director Anirban Bhowmik said the opportunities for paramedics will help resolve unemployment of school drop-outs and poor persons as well as those outside of conventional medical services in the rural areas.“Thus, to attain Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), we should incorporate them in the job market.”Community paramedics are those who have just completed Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and received a two-year intensive theoretical and practical training on anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, microbiology and pathology, and particularly trained in mother and child health.Addressing the discussion, state minister for health and family planning Zahid Maleque said scarcity of skilled manpower still remains a great problem in the health sector of the country.“We have less than five doctors at an upazila, but there are 10-20 posts for them. We lack adequate number of nurses and paramedics, too.”Talking about challenges in the health sector of the country, he said, institutional delivery is very low while absence of doctors is perennial.“If we can increase constant supervision and can reach the healthcare at doorsteps of the people and build patients’ trust on doctors, the medical services will be enhanced,” he observed.He also said the community paramedics can be a significant helping hand to address the problem.According to the government statistics, there are 13,000 government community clinics across the country, where the CPs can be employed.Suyaiya Begum, registrar at the Bangladesh Nursing and Midwifery Council (BNMC), said some of the community paramedics did really well in the examinations during the training courses.She called on the government and the other private sectors to come forward to offer them jobs.“If we can offer them jobs against their degrees, they will feel encouraged,” she added.SM Mahiuddin Kamal, principal at the Radda Paramedic Institute, said there is no doubt that theoretical and practical courses of the paramedics are well updated.“If we can offer the paramedics a more guided practical, computer and English language courses, they can do better in future.“It will help poor of the poorest in the country to address their health problems,” he said.Speaking at the roundtable, Mashreka Parveen, a paramedic, said, “We want to reduce mortality rate of the child and mother in the country.“We have skills to treat post-pregnancy and post-natal healthcare of a mother and new-born.“My appeal is to let us apply for the posts at the community clinics as a paramedic.”WaterAid country director Khairul Islam said, “Community paramedics are qualified for jobs at the government’s community clinic.“We should also create entrepreneurship opportunity for their self-dependency.”UNFPA’s specialist adviser Syed Abu Zafar Mohammad Musa said role of the community paramedics are important for marginalised people as the CPs usually go back to their community after completing the courses.He also urged the authorities concerned to acknowledge their qualities.“Formation of an accreditation cell to check both qualities and standard of the students and teachers is essential,” he suggested.Zahidur Rahman, secretary at the State Medical Faculty of Bangladesh, said there is a huge job opportunity for the paramedics abroad.“But, we should maintain standard of the paramedics.”CPTI Association convener Rabiul Karim said as the paramedics have a six-month practical experience at the hospital, they have ability to refer the patients to the better hospital.Zafar Ahman Hakim, senior advisor at IRHSCPP, urged the authorities concerned to bring the noble profession forward for welfare of the society.“Once community paramedics are recruited at the community clinics, it’ll ensure quality medical services at the clinics,” said Mohammad Sharif, director MCHS and LD-MCRAH, family planning department.Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin, president of Bangladesh Medical Association, said there are thousands of community clinics and union medical centres across the country.If the paramedics are appointed, they will serve the community better there.Prothom Alo associate editor Abdul Quayum moderated the roundtable.
Following its recent zombie hit “Kingdom,” global streaming giant Netflix will next week launch its latest Korean original series, coming-of-age romance drama “My First First Love”.Loosely based on a web series by Jung Hyun-jung and Kim Ran, “My First” recounts the ups and downs of a group of friends living under one roof. Composed of young, rising actors and K-pop figures who already have fanbases across Southeast Asia, its cast includes: Ji-soo (“One Way Trip”); girl band DIA’s Jung Chae-yeon ([TV] “Marry Me Now”); boy band B1A4’s Jin-young (“The Dude in Me”); Choi Ri (“Spirits’ Homecoming”); and Kang Tae-oh (“Fengshui”).”“Netflix gave me much more detailed and edgy questions about the script and plot, compared to what I had been given when pitching my series for terrestrial broadcasters,” said Oh Jin-seok ([TV] “My Sassy Girl”), the series director. “But as soon as I passed that phase, the company gave me full freedom. That was very cool.” “Kingdom,” Netflix’s second Korean production (but first to be streamed) premiered in January and was well-received. According to local market research firm Nielsen Korea Click data, Netflix’s subscribers in Korea reached 2 million in February, up from 1 million in October last year. Analysts point to “Kingdom” attracting new subscribers in Korea, though how long the series’ effect can last is unclear.Since top Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja” in 2017, the streaming giant has accelerated local language production in Korea. Four-part omnibus drama, “Persona,” starring singer-songwriter-actress IU, was launched on Thursday. “Love Alarm” and second seasons of “Kingdom” and “My First” are slated for launches later.Sixteen episodes of “My First” have been shot.

India is one of the major suppliers of handicrafts to the world. Indian artisans and craftsmen have been weaving magic into classic pieces of treasures for decades. And yet, most people resort to buying imported goods when it comes to gifting on special occasions which, in turn, has a profound impact on the economy in terms of keeping money in the community.The gifting market is worth $30 Billion today and India would do well to tap into it. Even if it is possible to contribute 1 per cent of that from Indian handicrafts, it could prove to be a huge boost for our artists and Indian economy.
