first_imgLiberia’s U-20 Coach Robert Lartey, popularly known as Coach Pella, has expressed confidence of pulling a win against the Ivorian national U-20 football team.Coach Pella said his boys are up for a sustained attack’ instead of being defensive against the Young Elephants in their first leg clash on Sunday, May 10 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.“My practice sections have been about development and learning,” Coach Pella said. “I am upbeat that the kids are going all out on Sunday to try harder for a victory.”The Liberia Football Association’s best coach said during a mobile interview yesterday that having a positive track-record in the local scene, he is certain to turn the odds in his favor.Coach Pella clinched his first championship with 2nd division Exodus FC in 2006 as well as the knockout title with BYC II in 2012.He later moved to BYC I, where he won triple titles (knockout, championship and super cup) in 2013; and the championship at the just ended league.“We are hopeful but Liberians should not have high expectation if we draw and don’t lose,” Coach Pella said. “We want to encourage all Liberians to wear their red, white and blue to cheer the boys to victory.”In a soft but firm tone, Coach Pella named Blamo Nimely, Sylvanus Nimely and Sopo Somah as the ‘trio aggressive attackers.”Skipper Benjamin Gbamy, Steven Seamen and Murphy Dorleh are listed for the middle; while Raymond Fransiah, Fred Fofana Albert Nimely and Boakai Nimely are in the defense with Jeremiah Sekie between the sticks.The LFA technical director, Henry Brown clarified that Coach J. Kaetu Smith was never the head coach of the U-20 as it has been speculated, “He is the Supervisor of the Junior Coaches (U-12, U-14, U-17 and U-20).”The Ivorian (Cote d’Ivoire) U-20 is expected to arrive in the country today at 2:45p.m, EC member Ansu Dorleh told the Daily Observer.Secretary General Alphonso Armah told newsmen that the LFA’s protocol team headed former FIFA referee Alex Nagbo would be at the airport at 1:30p.m to meet the team.He indicated that the Krystal Oceanview Hotel has been booked while officers of the Liberia National Police will head the security.The visiting Ivorian U-20 team has a brilliant history, having qualified for the FIFA World Youth Championship in 1977, 1983, 1991, 1997 and 2003.In 2011, the Young Elephants stopped in the 2nd preliminary round of the African Youth Championship.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Recently, the Federal Government announced that it will be providing relief from tariffs for the Woodfibre LNG and LNG Canada projects.In a statement, MP Bob Zimmer says he is pleased that the efforts on behalf of these projects have been rewarded and says many communities will benefit from these projects.He also says he is glad to see that the efforts to push back against the tariffs were not in vain.- Advertisement -“I’m very pleased to hear that efforts on behalf of these projects have been rewarded. This is crucial for local and national economies and will also be a major benefit to local Indigenous communities. I have been supportive of these projects since they were first announced and have helped to champion them in Ottawa. I’m glad that our efforts to push back against these tariffs have not been in vain.”According to Zimmer, this decision to relieve tariffs is welcoming news for B.C. as it has been negatively impacted by recent mill closures and economic decisions.“The decision to give these projects relief from tariffs is a welcome one, especially in a province that has already been so negatively impacted by mill closures, wildfires and the economic choices made by these Liberal and NDP governments.”Advertisement Woodfibre and others argued that the tariffs were unfair, but in November 2018, the Canada Border Services Agency ruled the duties would apply to LNG modules as well.Woodfibre and LNG Canada are now both protected from the tariffs.last_img read more

first_img1 Has Marseille defender Brice Dja Djedje signed for Watford? Watford have signed Marseille defender Brice Dja Djedje…according to the player.The Ivory Coast international has told French newspaper L’Equipe he is set to complete a £4million move to the Premier League and pen a four-year contract with the Hornets, and will now link up with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour of Austria.“I had other proposals, yes, even a German club, but I preferred to sign for Watford because this is a good club,” 25-year-old Dja Djedje said.“I will find some former players of Ligue 1 and because it allows me to set foot in the Premier League.”The right-back says he is looking forward to working with new Hornets boss Walter Mazzarri, whom he claims was interested in signing him when in charge at Napoli.“I feel with him [Mazzarri] I can continue to progress,” he added.“He wants to play his 3-5-2 team, this is a system that suits me well because we played in a slightly similar way with Marcelo [Bielsa].”Watford are yet to officially confirm the transfer, but have been busy reshaping the squad for life after Quique Sanchez Flores, who left the club at the end of the season after keeping the Hertfordshire club in the top flight and also taking them to the  FA Cup semi-finals.New manager Mazzarri has already landed young Liverpool winger Jerome Sinclair, Belgium international Christian Kabasele and forward Isaac Success, as well as Colombia international full-back Juan Camilo Zuniga on loan from Napoli.last_img read more

first_imgA lapse in concentration from skipper Jamal Lascelles saw the ball fall to England international Raheem Sterling who placed a wonderful curling effort past the despairing dive of Martin Dubravka.The visitors were level when DeAndre Yedlin escaped the attention of the City backline to get on the end of Salomon Rondon’s cross.However order was restored when, from 25 yards out, Walker drilled a stinging drive into the far corner to ensure Pep Guardiola’s side kept the heat on Liverpool at the top of the table.MOMENT OF THE MATCHHaving already opened his Premier League account for the season, Sterling looks to have started this season with a real vengeance after unnecessary backlash at the World Cup in Russia. 5 His opener in this game left Dubravka in the Newcastle goal absolutely no chance and showed how the young man is slowly becoming a more and more complete footballer under Pep Guardiola.A caressed finish which defied his 23 years would not have looked out of place in the archives of a Thierry Henry ‘Best Goals’ compilation.While Walkers blasted finish was certainly spectacular, there was a real sense of assured quality from his international colleague to open the scoring.MAN OF THE MATCH – David SilvaWhile Newcastle’s shot-stopper made several key saves for his side, there was only one man capable of taking this award. Walker hit a rasping effort from 25 yards to secure the victory The City players celebrate with Sterling after his wonderful equaliser Silva only strengthens claims he is the best Premier League import with his consistently brilliant displays 5 5 PREMIER LEAGUE TABLE Silva is ageing like a fine wine, continually stepping up for Pep Guardiola in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne.He is always willing to receive the ball in tight situations to try and create space for others – his selflessness with and without the ball will be watched on by the City boss with sheer delight in replays of this game.Unlucky to not get on the scoresheet himself, often finding himself agonisingly close to getting on the end of a final pass at the end of a flowing move.MATCH STATISTICS 5 5 Kyle Walker scored his first Manchester City goal to give the reigning Premier League champions all three points against Newcastle United.Rafa Benitez set his Magpies side out not to lose, but would have been deeply disappointed to see them go behind so early.last_img read more

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Microsoft just released a major update to Bing Maps. Bing Maps now offers draggable routes that are computed dynamically, a zoom bar, embeddable maps, smarter command parsing and a redesigned interface. The new version of Bing Maps also loads faster. Microsoft now hosts the service in 7 data centers around the world and the Bing team has brought the size of the default Bing Maps home page down from 678kb to 484kb. Just like Google Maps, Bing Maps now also understands more complex queries like “Bellevue, WA to Space Needle.” Draggable RoutesDraggable routes are nothing new, of course. Google Maps has offered this feature for quite a while. Compared to Google Maps, the Microsoft implementation of this feature is slightly more difficult to use. Google Maps always displays a little button on a route that moves relative to the user’s cursor. On Bing Maps, users have to be more precise when it comes to grabbing a point on their route where they want to deviate from the computed route. Still, this is a welcome addition to Bing Maps. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Microsoft#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market frederic lardinois EmbedsEmbedding Bing Maps is now as easy as clicking one button and copying and pasting the embed code. The best feature here is the ability to customize these embeds. Users can select different sizes, whether to display a static or draggable map, as well as different map styles (road map vs. satellite imagery). Bing Maps also generates a link to the map that can be shared by email.View Larger MapDriving DirectionsView Bird’s EyeAs Google continues to enhance its mapping products and now even produces its own map data in the US, Bing Maps and others will have to stay on their toes. This update to Bing Maps mostly brings Microsoft back on par with Google with regards to features. Bing always offered a number of features that Google didn’t offer, including high-resolution aerial photos, and a Google Earth-like 3D view with 3D models in the browser. Currently, however, Google is adding more features (like traffic for more roads) and improving its maps at a faster rate than anybody else and it will be interesting to see if Microsoft will be able to keep up with this pace.last_img read more

first_imgThe Congress on Saturday appointed Shillong MP Vincent Pala as working president of the Meghalaya unit in an effort to contain the crisis sparked by the resignation of five party MLAs who joined the BJP ally, the National People’s Party (NPP), ahead of the Assembly elections early next year. On Friday, eight MLAs of the Meghalaya Assembly, including those from the Congress, quit as lawmakers and joined the NPP, a party founded by the former Lok Sabha Speaker Purno A. Sangma. The Congress’s strength in the 60-member House has now come down to 24, but the government will survive with the help of nine Independent MLAs.Congress president Rahul Gandhi effected a complete revamp of the Meghalaya unit in less than 24 hours and formed a 13-member election committee. Incumbent Congress chief and former Chief Minister D.D. Lapang was made an adviser and Celestine Lynghdoh was made State Congress chief.But the appointment of Mr. Pala as working president is significant as the Lok Sabha member is known to be a critic of Chief Minister Mukul Sangma and the move is seen as an attempt to achieve a balance of power within the Congress. Mr. Sangma’s detractors point out that in a State where Chief Ministers usually change every two years, he completed a full five-year term. And that has made him powerful within the Congress. “The Chief Minister’s brother is a senior Cabinet Minister, his wife is an MLA. Even his son-in-law is a contender for the Lok Sabha ticket,” says one of the detractors who didn’t wish to be quoted.Soon after the Congress MLAs joined the NPP, party chief Conrad Sangma said the move implied the failure of Mr. Mukul Sangma.“There may be personal differences or even differences among tribes. Mr. Mukul Sangma is from the Garo tribe and that may not to the liking of some Khasi leaders. But he is the most progressive leader,” said a Congress functionary who supports the Chief Minister.The term of the Assembly ends in March 2018 and the State is expected to go to the polls along with Tripura and Nagaland. All three are focus States for the BJP, which has ousted the Congress from its strongholds of Assam and Manipur. Congress rebel-turned-BJP leader and Assam’s Health and Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has been made in charge of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) to achieve what the BJP calls a Congress-free northeast. Aware of the BJP’s aggressive plan, the Congress on Saturday announced an election committee and a campaign committee for Nagaland.last_img read more
