Wage deferrals are also on the horizon at Aberdeen, while even Celtic, who had 33 million pounds cash in the bank in their latest financial figures in February, are mulling wage cuts according to manager Neil Lennon.Despite the fate of this season hanging in the balance, clubs are looking ahead with season tickets for the 2020/21 campaign a means to a short-term cash injection.“I’ve been heartened by the messages of support I have received from fans asking what they can do to help the club through this really difficult period,” said Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack.Season ticket sales are not the only reason why the smaller leagues in Europe are more keen to turn the page on the 2019/20 season.With just 10 percent of income for Scottish clubs coming from the television deal that is due to expire at the end of this season, the big penalty clauses faced by Europe’s top five leagues with broadcasters for failing to fulfil fixtures are not as severe.Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars criticised the Dutch FA for “hiding behind UEFA” and not being brave enough to call their season to a halt.“We in the Netherlands are not as dependent on television rights incomes as the leagues in Spain, England, Italy and Germany are,” Overmars told De Telegraaf.“I think that they had been put under big pressure by UEFA to continue playing at whatever cost.”The issue is further complicated in Scotland with a new, more lucrative, TV deal — worth a reported 32 million pounds annually — set to start next season meaning clubs do not want to sacrifice a late start to the 2020/21 campaign for finishing this season.“Given the timescales involved, with every day that passes I think it becomes more unrealistic,” Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows told the BBC on the prospect of finishing the season. UEFA said a failure to complete the football season could lead to exclusion from European competition.London, United Kingdom | AFP | UEFA’s ultimatum to national leagues that a failure to complete the football season could lead to exclusion from European competition has left the continent’s less wealthy leagues, like Scotland, in limbo.Scottish clubs were due to meet by video-conference on Friday with the possibility of following the Belgian league’s recommendation to call their season to an end amid the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.That meeting has now been pushed back to next week as Scottish clubs scramble just to survive in the months to come with matches indefinitely suspended on public health grounds.Meagre television rights deals, in particular in comparison to the English Premier League across the border, have seen Scotland slide down the food chain of European football.The existing broadcast contract for the Scottish Premiership is reportedly worth a total of just 21 million pounds ($22.7 million) annually.Clubs can therefore little afford to miss out on European competition, with even those who do not participate eligible for solidarity payments from UEFA.“Since participation in UEFA club competitions is determined by the sporting result achieved at the end of a full domestic competition, a premature termination would cast doubts about the fulfilment of such condition,” UEFA said in a joint letter with the European Clubs Association and European Leagues.Many Scottish clubs had been keen for the season to be called as it stands — with Celtic crowned champions — so that prize money could be handed out to solve a cash-flow crisis.A proposal for league reconstruction whereby two teams are promoted and no side relegated from the top four leagues would also mitigate the damage and any potential legal challenges.Instead, as so often, Scottish clubs have had to turn to their fanbases for support.– Celtic mull wage cuts –According to UEFA’s latest Club Licensing Benchmark report, gate receipts provide 43 percent of revenue for the 12 clubs in the Scottish Premiership, by far the highest in Europe’s top 20 leagues.The inability to play games and get people through the gate has already resulted in Hearts asking players to take a 50 percent pay cut and members of the Hibernian squad deferring up to half their salary.

PROUD FATHER AND SON—Jason White is pictured with his son Justin Dobbs, New Pittsburgh Courier Boys Basketball Most Valuable Player. Following Allderdice and Carrick is Perry, Oliver and Westinghouse with three each; Schenley, Langley and Brashear had two each; and Peabody had one.Justin Dobbs from Allderdice and Brandon Johnson from Schenley were the only two unanimous selections for the First Team, with Greg McGhee from Perry, Ben Mickens from Allderdice, Marcus Smith from Perry, and Dontae Forte from Peabody all locked in a very close battle for the three slots left on the First Team.McGhee, Mickens and Smith won out with Forte dropping to the second team, joined by Arthur Smith, Schenley; Bruce Grover, Perry; Gary Herndon, Westinghouse; and Mike Talton, Carrick.The Third Team was dominated by Allderdice and Oliver, with two players each. Cameron Bailey and Eric Mallinger from Allderdice; and Lamontae Harrison and Shaquille Hager from Oliver. Rasheed McKamey from Carrick finished out the team.The voting for Most Valuable Player was extremely tight between Dobbs and Johnson, with Dobbs winning out. Ben Mickens also received votes, but no Perry player received any.Even though Marco Corona from Perry received votes, Andre McDonald from Allderdice and Walt Malinski from Carrick actually received the most votes for Coach of the Year, with Malinski winning out.Coach Malinski did an incredible job this year with a team that usually finishes somewhere near the bottom of the league, but this year they were one of the top teams in the City finishing fourth with a 10-6 record.The All-City Team is selected each year by the Courier staff and the City League coaches.(Reprinted from the April 27 Edition of the New Pittsburgh Courier.) Even though Perry dominated City League boys basketball this season with a 15-1 interleague play, Allderdice, 12-4, and Carrick, 10-6, captured the most spots on this years’ All-City Basketball selection with four each. Allderdice beat Perry for the City League championship, but the All-City selections were based on what these teams did during the regular season.
Female artists were on Thursday urged at the Guyana Women Artists Association (GWAA) 31st annual art exhibition by Public Telecommunications Minister Catherine Hughes to take full advantage of the opportunities that the future presents.One of the paintings on displayThe exhibition was hosted at Arthur Chung Convention Centre.According to the Minister, she applauds the Association for their continuous work and dedication. She said that she believes that all their efforts have paid off because of their “stick-to-itiveness” and being one of the oldest art associations not only in Guyana but in the Caribbean.“This, to me, is the greatest evidence of your perseverance and determination to keep believing in the importance of art, artistry and the creative industry in all of our lives,” she said.However, she said that even though there is love for art, the industry needs to be transformed into a remunerative one.Meanwhile, she said as Guyana is approaching its first year of oil and gas production, many opportunities will present its self. She explained that with many companies establishing offices in Guyana, artists should market themselves to have their work displayed in these buildings.Minister Hughes also suggested that with the holidays now approaching, the females should take into consideration gifting a one-of-a-kind piece from the art pieces on display.Furthermore, President of the GWAA, Carol Fraser explained that the event was themed “Rhythm of our Journey II” because of the vision of their founders as it presented the progress of the artists’ work.Nevertheless, the Association was founded in 1987 and hosted its first exhibition in 1988.
Electrifying performances are what you can expect at Under Madiba Skies. (Image: I Support Do You)Nelson Mandela became the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994; his inaugural speech, in which he spoke of freedom, the future, reconciliation and renewal, still resonates today.“It always seems impossible, until it is done,” he said, prompting musicians from South Africa and France to interpret his words in a special performance in which many influences and cultures come together on stage.This meeting of musical chairs goes by the name of Under Madiba Skies, and they will be performing in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town from 29 October to 1 November.On 29 October, catch them at Alliance Française Pretoria; on 30 October, they are in Johannesburg at Alliance Française Johannesburg; on 31 October they will be at Ikhaya le Langa in Langa in Cape Town; and they finish off their tour in Durban at Rainbow Restaurant. All performances are free, except the final show in Durban, for which tickets are R60.A MEETING OF DIFFERENT CULTURESIn Under Madiba Skies, French band Gran Kino has come together with a number of South African musicians, including Manelis, Ayanda Nhlangothi, Jitsvinger and Burni Aman, to share their vision of South Africa today.This collaboration, which began in 2013, has spawned several songs. Whether from Durban, rapping in isiZulu, from Johannesburg singing with a traditional sweetness, or from Cape Town rapping in Afrikaans, the vision is mutual: coming together on one stage, uniting different languages, visions and ideas. Above all, the venture celebrates an endless artistic richness.The music weaves together traditional songs, rock, hip-hop and acoustic piano and voice. The performers are colourful and embody values of peace and openness to the world.Under Madiba Skies released a four-track EP in 2013; the first single was called Brand New Day, and is available online.The artists see Madiba’s inaugural speech as a prophecy and feel honoured to bring his word to listeners around the world. It is also an opportunity to show the world what South Africa has to offer.Their ideals dovetail with South Africa’s National Development Plan or Vision 2030, which has an aim to seal Africa’s place in the world and bring about nation building through social cohesion.In 2013, the group successfully toured France with performances at some of the biggest world music festivals in that country, such as Festival Generic and The Worlstock Festival. In 2014, they visited South America.The first Under Madiba Skies single, Brand New Day, was playlisted on Radio France International and other French radio stations. Songs from the EP were also playlisted on radio stations in Belgium, Germany, Greece, Lebanon, Poland, Italy, Spain and Hong Kong, among other countries.AUDIENCE APPRECIATIONIt seems the collaboration has touched many, with audiences around the globe appreciating the performances:“I wanted to congratulate you, to thank you, to tell you how much this moment had touched me. My emotions about your performance were so strong, I was not able to do anything the days following your concert.”“It is this simple message I want to convey to you: through your involvement with a bit of soul, Madiba was in Macon, and the permanence of the soul softens the pain caused by the sad news of his passing. For me, as for many, Madiba remains alive.”“It was an evening of great splendour and generosity… Your concert was like a bomb of talent: energy, originality, crossroads of music and styles. A true rainbow of musicians and rhythms.”
2010 might be the Chinese Year of the Tiger but in Bangalore the cubs ruled the roost. Be it sports, acting or cooking, youngsters from all walks of life are creating waves. Simply Bangalore does a lowdown on youngsters who rocked Bangalore in 2010. Actress Aindrita RaySexy sirenAindrita Ray, 20,,2010 might be the Chinese Year of the Tiger but in Bangalore the cubs ruled the roost. Be it sports, acting or cooking, youngsters from all walks of life are creating waves. Simply Bangalore does a lowdown on youngsters who rocked Bangalore in 2010.Actress Aindrita RaySexy sirenAindrita Ray, 20, ActorThis Bengali-origin Kannada film actor was known as a bombshell much before she managed to woo the critics and the discerning audiences with a powerful performance in Manasaare last year, the role which won her three popular awards. She’s one of the hottest actors in the Kannada film industry. Single and ready to mingle? Probably not considering that she’s still new in the industry and wants to make a mark professionally before getting involved with anyone.Having lived in Bangalore for 19 years, her Bengali roots are almost rusty and she claims not to know ‘anything about Bengali cinema’. It was the little girl in the scooty commercial that caught the eye of Director Mahesh who had cast her in Meravanige and there’s been no looking back professionally. Manasaare won her the best actress award from AKKA, Suvarna as well as the Scope South award. With anasina Mathu and Januma Janumadallu in Kannada, Flat in Hindi and Sari nee ishtam in Telugu, the celebrations start on a multilingual note for Ray in 2011.Chef Manu ChandraDinner dateManu Chandra, 30, ChefIt’s not uncommon to see customers gushing at both the chef and the food at Olive Beach in Bangalore. Long before Saif Ali Khan made the profession popular or an older Amitabh Bachchan decided to don the cool chef’s hat, Bangaloreans have found the chef with the coolest glamour quotient-Manu Chandra.Trade and travel magazines on food have rated Chandra among the best talents in the food business in India and he was most recently rated the most talented young chef in the country. His college days saw Cafe Turtle in Delhi feature Manu’s specials during weekends. And it wasn’t long before he entered The Culinary Institute of America, New York. He graduated with top honours and went on to work at top kitchens around the world before returning to India to take over as Executive Chef of A D Singh’s new Olive Beach in Bangalore.Snooker and Billiards champion Pankaj AdvaniThe champPankaj Advani, 25, Snooker and Billiards championThe year didn’t start off on a great note for one of Bangalore’s best known sporting champs but it certainly ends gloriously with nothing less than a podium finish, a gold medal for Pankaj Advani, in fact the first for India, at the Asian Games in Guanghou. It wasn’t always the case of course when this 18-year-old made his debut, “No body would have bet even a paisa on me,” he says rather modestly. Advani is not one to discuss his personal life, leave alone girlfriends, and thankfully snooker and billiards players are not hounded like cricketers. Stylish without being over the top Advani’s comfortable style of a tee teamed with jeans and simple ways have made him quite the boy next door in his hometown.Actress RamyaBelle of the ballRamya, 27, ActorThe city’s best known actress, her volatile temper and her vulnerable looks have won Ramya an army of admirers. Besides Kannada cinema, she’s also done some award winning work in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Ramya is quite the dream girl, a sports person and an animal lover with a vivacious personality her dream is to open an animal shelter and a veterinary hospital in the near future. With over 37 films in her kitty, she’s established herself as one of South India’s best known actresses. This year like most others opened on a positive note, for Ramya with her experimental film Just Math Mathalli, directed by Sudeep, received the thumbs up from all the critics, something that has been considered a bold and innovative step for the otherwise mainstream actress who has restricted herself to commercial hit films.Businessman Siddharth Mallya with Bollywood bombshell Deepika PadukoneSuper scionSiddharth Mallya, 23, BusinessmanIf there’s one youngster who has acquired rock star status in Bangalore this year, that’s 23-year-old Siddharth Mallya. After all, this lad belongs to the Billionaire’s club. Born in the United States and raised in London and the Middle East, Mallya Jr got his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from London and is currently the life and soul of Mallya’s parties. Surrounded by a bevy of babes, the scion himself seems to favour Deepika Padukone, after all they share a common team, The Royal Challengers. As to what makes Mallya Jr rock, besides his cool looks, he’s already a director at UB working on making Royal Challengers a force to reckon with in the Indian Premier League. Something that he does with great panache and the team that was down and out till last year, turned out to be the dark horse going all the way to the finals. And it goes without saying that the best after-parties were those hosted by Royal Challengers.Cricketer Robin UthappaWillow whispersRobin Uthappa, 25, CricketerIf he had listened to his mother, he would have ended up a doctor. Today, his romance is with the willow and it’s no wonder that he’s earned the nickname “The Walking Assasin” thanks to his exploits on the field. “I always wanted to be a part of the Indian cricket team ever since I can remember, and today I’m lucky to live that dream,” says he. The Indian Premier League in 2010 changed all that as he smashed 51 off 21 balls, in fact the second fastest 50 in the IPL against King XI Punjab and was the match winner for his team-Royal Challengers.advertisementadvertisement
For a majority of the Ohio State football team, one thought comes to mind when they think of Saturday’s upcoming game against Nebraska: “We owe them one.” Some OSU players threw that phrase around after the team’s Wednesday practice at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. First-year OSU coach Urban Meyer wasn’t part of the Buckeyes’ 34-27 loss in Lincoln, Neb., last season, but he understands his players want revenge. “I have heard them talk about this,” Meyer said Wednesday. “I’ve actually heard, I haven’t brought it up – maybe this weekend or Friday, I’ve got to evaluate where we’re at – but I hear them saying ‘We owe this team.’” Under the lights OSU will have quite the stage for revenge Saturday, with the game being a nationally televised broadcast on ABC, under the lights, with kickoff scheduled for 8:00 p.m. That should help the No. 12-ranked Buckeyes’ chances against the No. 21-ranked Cornhuskers, as Ohio Stadium should be closer to being the “inferno” Meyer has said many times he hopes The Horseshoe can be. Preparing for a night game can pose challenges, though. Players have much more time than usual waiting for kickoff, and what OSU will do Saturday morning and afternoon is something Meyer is still considering. “We’re still finalizing our plans for it. The good thing is, we have a lot of experience with night games, (OSU strength coach Mickey Marotti) and I,” Meyer said. “We want them rested. We have an idea but it hasn’t been completed yet.” Injury update OSU will be without at least one of their playmakers Saturday. Senior running back Jordan Hall will not play in Saturday’s contest as he is still recovering from an injury to his right knee. Buckeye redshirt junior safety C.J Barnett is a “maybe.” “Is there a maybe category? He’s got to get a lot better. He’s still limping around,” Meyer said. Sophomore defensive end Michael Bennett will play after suffering a groin injury before the Buckeyes’ game against Miami. Deep threat Twice this season, and once last year, OSU sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller and sophomore wide receiver Devin Smith have hooked up for a long, game-winning touchdown through the air. Throwing deep is something Meyer said he would like to do more often. He now trusts both Miller and Smith to make connections on long passes, but he wasn’t able to say that in the spring. “If you were to say that before Spring Game – April 21 or something – if you said that April 14 I would have looked at you like you had seven heads. (Smith) has earned that right,” Meyer said of Smith running deep patterns. Defending Nebraska The Huskers don’t have a big, bruising running back like the Buckeyes had to defend last week in Michigan State junior tailback Le’Veon Bell. Many of Nebraska’s players, both offensive and defensive, are of the quicker and leaner build. Don’t say Nebraska isn’t physical, though. “No, no, no. This is a tough outfit. It’s a very physical defense. They fly around. A much different scheme, they try to push you east-west,” Meyer said. Against MSU, the Buckeyes had to focus on mainly just one player – Bell. Nebraska has three capable runners: redshirt junior quarterback Taylor Martinez, senior running back Rex Burkhead and sophomore tailback Ameer Abdullah. Meaning the OSU defense doesn’t have much room for error. “You miss (Martinez) and it’s a home run. That Burkhead just keeps coming at you, coming at you. Their offensive line, I think their offensive line is very good. They block several players as well as anyone I’ve seen,” Meyer said.
Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day prior to the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day will likely be the next Urban Meyer assistant coach to be hired elsewhere as a head coach. It just won’t happen this year.Meyer said Wednesday during his press conference on Early Signing Day that Day turned down an offer to be a head coach at a program in the Southeastern Conference.“Coach Day had the opportunity to potentially be a head coach in the SEC and decided to stay at Ohio State,” Meyer said. “He’s done a phenomenal job for us. There have been other coaches on our staff have opportunities to move on and they haven’t, so this coaching staff is very strong right now.”Day was hired last January and inked a two-year contract with Ohio State. He was paid a base salary of $400,000 this season, but that will increase to $800,000 next season.There were a total of six SEC head coach positions open this offseason. Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas and Ole Miss have all filled those positions. It’s unclear which one of those positions offered the job to Day.Day told reporters in the locker room after the Big Ten championship game that he had not been contacted by another school for another job at that point.Day, also the quarterbacks coach, was largely responsible for a turnaround of the Ohio State offense in 2017. The Buckeyes averaged the fifth-most points per game in the country with 42.5 and the passing offense ranked 28th in 2017 with an average of 274.2 yards compared to 81st in 2016 with 213.9 yards.
Fernando Torres announced that he is going to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the ongoing season but Calen Carr doesn’t think that he would be the right player to become an MLS star.The former Houston Dynamo striker insisted that Torres’ past doesn’t necessarily mean that he would be successful after coming to the MLS as he doesn’t see a team which would be the right fit for the Spanish attacker.Carr spoke about the former Spain international as he said, according to Sky Sports:La Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“It’s got to be the right team, MLS is at a point now where some of these older stars who’ve done well at Europe aren’t the necessarily right fit or an automatic ‘Yes, we’ll take you’.”“If it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic and it’s the right fit for a big club with a global profile like LA Galaxy, it makes sense.”“You hear teams like Atlanta United and LAFC who have gone younger and of the nine DP [Designated Player] signings in the off-season, the average age was just 22 and a half years old.”
Bayern Munich are prepared to pursue their reported interest in Paulo Dybala in this summer’s transfer window if Robert Lewandowski chooses to leave the club, claims The SunThe Poland international has been strongly linked with a move to the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United over the past year with Lewandowski believed to be growing frustrated by Bayern’s continued failure to win the Champions League title since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.Should the 29-year-old choose to leave in the summer, Bayern will then target Dybala and the German club are convinced that they can sign the star from Juventus for a club-record transfer fee of £88million.Report: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…However, Bayern are not the only ones interested in signing the Argentine forward with Atletico Madrid also keen on signing Dybala at the end of the season.The two-time Europa League winners are resigned to losing Antoine Griezmann to La Liga rivals Barcelona and believe that the signing of Dybala will help soften the blow of losing their star striker.The 24-year-old has scored an impressive 21 goals in 30 Serie A games this season.

I expect the officers to be fair, firm and consistent in exercising their functions and we expect the Public and our clients to appreciate and adhere to the law.As it relates specifically to the role as Director, I will support lawful entry to persons (business and pleasure) who will benefit these Islands, while preventing the abuse of the society and its economy.I look forward to continuing the efforts to improve service delivery and processes that we manage, and to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. Critical to meeting our objectives is increased staff training and cross training, forging strategic alliances and the use of technology to protect our borders. I look forward to supporting the team at the Ministry of Border Control and Employment in achieving the broader objectives.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
