Gary Neville does not see himself as future Man Utd manager

first_img Press Association Valencia sent shockwaves around the footballing world earlier in the month when they handed the former United and England right-back his first managerial post. The news saw the odds quickly shorten on Neville succeeding Louis van Gaal at the Old Trafford helm and bookmakers currently make him favourite to be their next manager. The 40-year-old made 602 appearances for United during a one-club playing career, but the former right-back does not see himself returning to the club in a managerial capacity. “No, I don’t see myself managing Manchester United at all,” he told Sky Sports. “I know what I want to do in my life, and that’s not something that’s in my mind. “From my point of view, this is important for me and a valuable experience. I’m aware I need to succeed. “Succeeding for me would be knowing these players have improved dramatically. “Results come and go, I know we’re in a results-driven business, but I have never looked at football like that since I’ve finished playing. I did when I was a player. “As a part-owner, I think about moving forward in the next five, 10 years.” center_img Gary Neville does not see himself managing Manchester United in the future.last_img read more

Saint Martin’s University Chorale and Olympia Chamber Orchestra present Major Works…

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityThe Saint Martin’s University Chorale will join the Olympia Chamber Orchestra for their eighth, collaborative Major Works Concert on Saturday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m., in Marcus Pavilion, located on the Lacey campus. The two groups will perform Franz Joseph Haydn’s epic piece, The Creation.“This is a gorgeous and famous classical major work,” says Chorale Director Darrell Born, associate professor of music and chair of the Saint Martin’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts. Claudia Simpson-Jones is the chamber orchestra conductor.Considered by many as a masterpiece of the 18th century, Austrian composer, The Creation (written in 1797-1798) is an oratorio that depicts and celebrates the creation of the world as described in the biblical Book of Genesis and in Paradise Lost. It is scored for soprano, tenor, bass soloist and a chorus, and is structured in three parts.Born will sing the role of Adam during the performance. The other soloists and their roles in the oratorio are as follows:James Walters, tenor, in the role of Uriel  – Walters recently made his musical theatre debut in the leading role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse. His recent opera credits include singing as Tonio in previews of La Fille du Regiment for the Seattle Opera Guild; The Barber of Seville (Count Almaviva) and The Magic Flute (Tamino), both with Northwest Opera.Ellaina Lewis, soprano, as Gabriel – Lewis’ principal roles include Amina in Bellini’s La Sonnambula; Monica in Menotti’s The Medium; Treemonisha in Scott Joplin’s Treemonisha; Erzulie in Flaherty’s Once on this Island; Pamina in The Magic Flute; Gertrude in Hansel and Gretel, and Sally Hemmings in Garett Fisher’s Sally Hemmings.  In the summer of 2009, she debuted the role of Simona in Night Flight, the operatic adaptation of the Saint-Exupéry novel, with Book-It Repertory.Thomas Freet, bass/baritone, as Raphael – Freet performed leading roles with Tacoma Opera, Seattle Civic Light Opera, University of Washington School of Music, South Kitsap Opera, Skagit Opera,  Puget Sound Opera and Opera Pacifica.  Roles he has performed include Mephistopheles in Faust; Sarastro in The Magic Flute; Don Giovanni in Don Giovanni; Gugliemo in Cosi Fan Tutte; Count Almaviva in Marriage of Figaro, and Escamillo in Carmen.  Freet’s previous oratorio soloist performances include Messiah, The Creation and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.Denise Daverso, soprano, as Eve — Daverso has been soloist with the Federal Way Chorale, Olympia Chamber Orchestra, Illinois Opera Theater, Chamber Music Chicago, and Chicago Opera Theater. A strong advocate of vocal chamber music, Daverso was soprano and founding member of The Rookwood Trio (soprano, tenor and keyboard), which undertook the commissioning of new music resulting in four world premieres. Daverso has sung as a professional choral singer and soloist for the Robert Shaw Carnegie Hall Choir, The Rockefeller Chapel Choir, and Second Presbyterian Church in Chicago.  She sang with the Lyric Opera of Chicago Chorus under the baton of Bruno Bartoletti and Marek Janowski.The event is free to Saint Martin’s University faculty, staff and students with ID.  The event is $5 at the door for the public.Because of a private event taking place that same evening in the Norman Worthington Conference Center, guests are requested to enter the concert through the Northeast doors of Marcus Pavilion instead of through the main lobby.

Jolly good ride by veteran Najair

first_imgVeteran jockey Vassell ‘Jollyman’ Najair, at age 62, became one of the oldest jockeys to win at Caymans Park, this aboard the Oneil Markland-trained STIR IT UP in the ninth race over 1100 metres for the Titania Trophy yesterday. STIR IT UP stormed though approaching the distance, disposing of the leaders FIRE ALARM and SWEET DIMENSION for an 11-1 upset, winning by four lengths. It was the second time in eight days that Markland, who is popularly called ‘Sweety Man’, was providing Najair with a winner, following the 35-1 outsider FIX IT UP over the round five course on December 15, Najair’s first winner in over three years. Najair, who started riding as an apprentice to the legendary female trainer, Eileen Cliggott, at Caymanas Park in 1967, joins David ‘Scorcher’ McKenzie as the oldest jockeys to win at the park. McKenzie, who is still active in the saddle at 66, recalled that he rode his last winner four years ago at age 62 as well. And McKenzie was on hand in the vicinity of the Jockeys’ Room to congratulate Najair on his return. Trainer Markland, who also ran FIX IT UP in the race with an apprentice rider replacing Najair, said he was always confident that ‘jolly’ would get the job done. “Despite his age, he’s one of the fittest jockeys at the track. It’s all about self-belief and Najair is convinced that he has some good years left in the saddle,” said Markland. Smiling from ear to ear en route to the Jockeys’ Room – accompanied by the trainer – Najair, a father of three, said despite a rocky career, which included a number of suspensions mainly for anger management related issues, he still enjoys the thrill of victory. “They will have to carry me off the track … in another 10 years,” he jokingly remarked. Meanwhile, in the two other trophy races on the card, the Gary Subratie-trained BLUE DIXIE turned the tables on recent conqueror BUBBLING KITTEN by a head in the Sweet Ruckus Trophy. First past the post LORD EQUUS, in the Stewards’ Cup, was disqualified and placed second following a stewards’ inquiry and the race awarded to first-time runner SIR RAJA BABA, with whom he had interfered a furlong out.last_img read more

ANGLERS LOSE LONG-RUNNING LEGAL CASE OVER FISHING RIGHTS ON GWEEBARRA

first_imgA JUDGE has ruled against anglers involved in a long-running dispute over a Co Donegal fishery.The anglers had been fishing the Gweebarra for a number of years until new rules came into force in 2007.But a judgement in favour of the Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) has sounded the deathknell for anglers hopes of being recognised as having “rights” to fish. In a statement to Donegal Daily, the IFI said Ms Justice Laffoy’s delivered judgement in the High Court on the first module of the trial in the case of Inland Fisheries Ireland (“IFI”) v Peadar O’ Baoill and Others had ruled in its favour.The organisation said the trial was sought by IFI to allow key issues to be determined in this first module with the objective of saving court time and costs. The module related to the most important sections of the fishery, parts of which are in State ownership and part private. All these sections are managed by IFI and include the famous “Mayo Pool”.Said the IFI statement: “The key claim by the Defendants and others opposed to the new fishing arrangements introduced on the Gweebarra by the Northern Regional Fisheries Board (now IFI) in 2007 (following agreement with other stakeholders), was that they had acquired rights to fish freely without permit or other restriction by virtue of fishing in this manner for many years prior to 2007.“They claimed they could continue to fish without the need for a permit from IFI on behalf of the State or private owners, as appropriate. If such rights were upheld it would have made the arrangements introduced in 2007 unworkable as the rod management plan which was central to the changes was dependent on regulation by issue of permits.“The decision on this key claim for any section of the fishery had application throughout the freshwater fishery as if there were such rights, they would affect all owners and all sections. However the Judgement was emphatic in rejecting the Defendants’ claim in that regard stating-“The reality is that the defendants have not established any right, public, or otherwise, to fish in the freshwater part of the Gweebarra River, including the part thereof the subject of this module”.The IFI said the questions to be determined by the Court in this module and the answers given by the Judge were as follows-(a) Does the plaintiff (Inland Fisheries Ireland) have the right to manage, control and regulate access to the lands marked in yellow (State owned) and green (Privately owned) on the relevant mapAnswer: Yes(b) Is the plaintiff (Inland Fisheries Ireland) entitled to the reliefs sought against the defendants insofar as the lands at (a) above are concerned?Answer: Yes(c) Are the defendants entitled to the reliefs set out in the counterclaim insofar as the lands at (a) above are concerned?Answer: NoIn short, said the IFI, it succeeded and the Defendants failed on all issues which were the subject of this module and, as already outlined above, the rejection of their claim to have acquired rights to fish without the permit of the owners extends to the entire freshwater part of the Gweebarra.The IFI went on: “The statements on behalf of the Donegal Game Angling Federation as reported in the edition of the Donegal News on the 21st December are therefore quite incomprehensible in the circumstances given they claim among other things that the Judgement confirmed the Defendants’ rights to fish the Gweebarra when the exact opposite is the case.“In her concluding remarks, the Judge urged the parties to avoid further expense by endeavouring to resolve the remainder of the dispute by local agreement and stated that “the Gweebarra River is a precious resource, which requires to be protected for this and future generations”- a view which IFI fully endorses.“In that context IFI repeats it’s previously stated position that it has absolutely no wish to be involved in proceedings of this nature and remains committed to the protection of the Gweebarra fishery in its entirety, the public portion of which is a state asset. It welcomes any initiative which will allow for sustainable management of the fishery into the future. It is happy therefore to seek to resolve the remainder of the dispute, but such would have to be found in the context of existing legal agreements with other stakeholders.”ANGLERS LOSE LONG-RUNNING LEGAL CASE OVER FISHING RIGHTS ON GWEEBARRA was last modified: December 23rd, 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) Tags:ANGLERS LOSE LONG-RUNNING LEGAL CASE OVER FISHING RIGHTS ON GWEEBARRAlast_img read more

Coalition aims to put First Nations in the drivers seat on major

first_imgTired of waiting for major construction projects to come to them, a growing coalition of First Nations is instead taking the lead on ventures to better control their economic futures.“We really are in a place looking to diversify our economies,” said Jasmine Thomas, a councillor of the Saik’uz First Nation in central British Columbia.“Really moving away from projects proposed and imposed on us, and changing that whole direction to projects that we’re leading, and that make sense to us.”The Saik’uz are one of four bands working with an initiative called the First Nations Major Projects Coalition to jump-start a hydroelectric enterprise that has been stalled for decades.The roughly $300-million Kenney Dam Water Release Facility is the first project the coalition has taken on in its mission to create a First Nation-led service providing trusted advice and co-ordination on getting major projects off the ground.“We are a first-of-its-kind model,” said Niilo Edwards, executive director of the coalition.“What we do is we respond to the requests that come in and provide the support necessary so that communities can make informed business decisions.”The coalition, currently funded from provincial and federal grants, is designed to move beyond impact benefit agreements towards greater initiative and ownership of projects with budgets of over $100 million, said Edwards.“In this day and age, First Nations have the opportunity to become project proponents themselves. Gone are the days of treating First Nations as stakeholders. They are governments, they have interests in their territory, they have economic and social interests that need to be satisfied.”To help First Nations get projects going, the coalition provides a forum for discussions and consultations as well as expertise, but it is not a project manager, nor does it negotiate on behalf of First Nations.The Kenney Dam project is the most advanced for the coalition, but Edwards said he has received requests to look into electricity transmission projects as well as the potential for a provincial loan guarantee fund.The coalition, which started taking shape in B.C. in 2015 and now counts 47 members as far east as Ontario, is also framed around projects that meet standards of cultural values and environmental stewardship and to demonstrate how projects can move forward with free, prior and informed consent.The Kenney Dam project looks to have met the criteria of the Saik’uz, Nadleh Whut’en, Stellat’en, and Cheslatta Carrier First Nations involved in moving it forward. The project will direct overflow water from the dam to a generation facility, and restore water flow to a stretch of the Nechako river that was choked off when the dam was built in the 1950s to power the Rio Tinto Kitimat aluminum smelter.The project has been proposed in various forms for decades, but never got off the ground. The coalition, along with independent power producer BluEarth Renewables Inc., is now advancing it through a new feasibility study with the hope of finally making it a reality, said Edwards.“This project was on the books for 20 or 30 years, and the First Nations who have an interest in it today, struggled to advance the project until the coalition came along and was able to act as a forum for capacity and technical support to make the project go, or at least as far as we’ve gotten it today, which is a heck of a lot further than it’s ever been.”BluEarth CEO Grant Arnold said the project itself fit key criteria for the company, but that the coalition has helped smooth out the process.“It’s a really impressive way for these groups to build capacity, and to get involved in large projects,” he said.“The model in Canada is evolving very very quickly, and to the benefit of everybody, including First Nations, project developers, there’s a lot of positive trends.”The coalition’s design of First Nation-led projects will help create more certainty for future projects, said JP Gladu, CEO of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business.“It creates certainty for investors, it creates certainty for communities, and at the end of the day, this is an opportunity for First Nations to generate new revenue sources through infrastructure. So I think more of this has to happen.”For Thomas, who acts as a spokeswoman for the four First Nations involved in the Kenney project, the development and the coalition in general are part of a new era for First Nation independence.“We’re talking about a new political landscape,” she said.“Having First Nations lead these type of projects, major projects, risks are definitely reduced. There’s a lot of economic certainty and it’s really helping to promote economic reconciliation for communities.”Ian Bickis, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Facebook rebuts Vietnam claims over alleged illegal content

first_imgHANOI, Vietnam — Facebook is defending itself against allegations that it allows illegal content in violation of Vietnam’s cybersecurity law.The social media giant said Wednesday that it had a clear process for reporting and handling content that violates laws.

Will contest from Varanasi if party wishes: Priyanka

first_imgRae Bareli (UP): Amid speculation that she might contest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Varanasi, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Tuesday she would abide by the party decision in this regard.Varanasi will vote in the last phase of Lok Sabha elections on May 19. “I have said this repeatedly that I will do what the party asks me to do,” Priyanka Gandhi said, adding that people were feeling harassed and wanted a change. She is on a tour of Amethi and Rae Bareli, represented by her brother and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and mother Sonia Gandhi, respectively.

Congress made Priyanka Gandhi the general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh in January, hoping for a change in its fortunes in the ongoing Lok Sabha election. On Monday, she hit out at BJP’s Amethi candidate Smriti Irani for insulting the people of the constituency by distributing shoes among them.last_img read more
