first_imgToby Alderweireld would like to make his loan move to Southampton permanent, despite reported interest from the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham. The 26-year-old’s September arrival from Atletico Madrid appeared quite the coup, especially as the season-long loan gave Saints the option to make the move permanent for just £6.8million. Alderweireld’s impressive performances have made that fee look all the more paltry, but parent club Atletico could cancel that buy-out clause by paying Saints £1.5million That, along with growing interest in his services, muddies the water somewhat, but the Belgium international would be keen to stay at St Mary’s. “If I could choose then of course I would like to stay here,” Alderweireld, set to return against Chelsea after nine weeks out with a hamstring complaint, told the BBC. “It’s not up to me. Atletico could decide that they want me back. I have two years left there so it is difficult for me to answer the question. “I’m enjoying the Premier League, I’m enjoying playing for Southampton – I love the club and I love the fans. I am enjoying it here and my mind and focus is on Southampton.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,Confidence in Government was lost on December 21, 2018. The No-Confidence Motion (NCM) should be given its full effect under the law.The People have a right to replace Government, which is merely their servant. Neither Government nor any third party (eg, GECOM) has the authority to obstruct the full effect of the NCM.Yet, Government continues to do anything to deny the NCM its full legal effect. This includes the call for or applause of House-to-House Registration which is not an Article 106 (6) and (7) requirement to install a new Government.A new Government must be installed immediately to avoid further exposure of the State to both foreign and domestic threats. Having a fallen Government at the helm of the State puts Guyana’s security and general welfare at significant risks.This is the essence of a NCM which seems to have gotten lost with all the unnecessary talk of registration. The security of the State is paramount, and it trumps the so-called readiness of GECOM. The State can collapse anytime, with or without GECOM.Having the fallen Granger Administration at the helm of Guyana invites instability. It is asking for intrusion against the State from foreign forces, and also domestic assault from within by armed groups.The arrival of thousands of Haitians with no allegiance to the State, when Guyana has a fallen regime in office, is a recipe for further internal danger. Until a new and stable Government is installed, these arrivals should temporarily cease.In the interim, civil society and the media must continue to put pressure on both Government and the Opposition to ensure that the NCM is given its full legal effect.As it is, Government’s actions have created irreparable injury to the State and democracy and may have destroyed future use of a NCM as a parliamentary convention. It is now fashionable to disregard substantive constitutional law. Here are a few examples.1. Instead of fresh elections “within three months,” the President replaced that in Article 106 (6) and (7) with elections in the “shortest” time possible. He has “hammered out” new law without any “role” from the legislature. No one knows what his law means.2. The formal detailed request by the Leader of the Opposition for the President and Cabinet to resign is cast aside with a handful of words: the request is being “examined.” Waiting for the President and Cabinet to resign is like waiting for Godot. That is, waiting for someone who never shows up.3. The Hon Minister of Security contradicts the President and is blunter. He openly dismissed that part of the Constitution which requires resignations as “legal fiction.” In other words, it is not a real request. Maybe the law needs to be in boldface font.It is a terrifying time to be a diplomat in Guyana, to witness coalition-flavoured democracy. Diplomats with vested interests in Guyana must be gravely concerned about the clear and present dangers posed by this coalition regime.They should also pressure State actors to give the NCM its full effect under the law.Sincerely,Rakesh Rampertablast_img read more

first_imgA man has appeared in court after being caught in possession of 10 stolen mobile phones.Gardai stopped Sabin Rostas at a routine checkpoint at Oldtown in Letterkenny, Co Donegal on February 24th last and discovered the phones. A Garda investigation showed the phones had been stolen at a number of local bars earlier.Rostas was arrested and when the charges were put to the accused man, he replied: “I did not take the phones.”The 28-year-old from The Green in Convoy, who denies the charges, appeared at Falcarragh District Court.Rostas’ solicitor Mr Patsy Gallagher applied for bail but Gardai objected.Garda Niall Murphy said he had fears that the accused man would leave the country.Mr Gallagher said his client could surrender his passport and identity card to the court but Garda Murphy said this would not prevent the accused travelling to the United Kingdom.Judge Paul Kelly said he was refusing bail because Rostas had a history of failing to take bench warrants.The case was adjourned to next Monday by videolink.Gardai said there may also be further charges against Rostas brought before the court.Man caught in possession of ten stolen mobile phones was last modified: May 17th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:courtdonegalGardaipossessionSabin Rostasstolen phoneslast_img read more

first_imgThere’s electricity at Titan, the large moon of Saturn.  That can only mean one thing: life!  “Electricity Found on Saturn Moon–Could It Spark Life?” asked a headline on National Geographic News by Rebecca Carroll.  Visions of spark discharge tubes in a mad scientist’s lab arise in the imagination.  “Recently identified electrical activity on Saturn’s largest moon bolsters arguments that Titan is the kind of place that could harbor life.”    Carroll quickly pointed out that at -350° F, any Titanian life would not resemble “life as we know it.”  Initial indications of electrical activity in the thick atmosphere of this unusual moon have been confirmed in data from the Huygens Probe that landed in 2005 (see 01/15/2005, 01/21/2005).  With that spark of imagination, the L-word leaped up from the reporter’s table:But a new study reports faint signs of a natural electric field in Titan’s thick cloud cover that are similar to the energy radiated by lightning on Earth.    Lightning is thought to have sparked the chemical reactions that led to the origin of life on our planet….    Jeffrey Bada, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, believes the process that allowed lightning to spark life on Earth is universal and could happen in many environments—including on Titan.    Confirmation earlier this year of Titan’s hydrocarbon lakes makes the Saturnian moon the first place other than Earth where open bodies of liquid have been found.    Hydrocarbons are organic molecules, and the fact that they exist in large quantities on Titan suggests that life could take root there under the right conditions.Alas, the water required for life is locked up in rock-hard ice.  The “precursor molecules” formed by lightning acting on hydrocarbons could go no further without water, Bada said.  But then – perhaps the ice could melt under certain circumstances.  Maybe a meteor impact would melt the ice long enough for interesting things to happen. Titan’s water is currently frozen into chunks as hard as granite.  If those ice “rocks” were to melt, however, the environment could become more hospitable to the building blocks of life.    With liquid water, the planet could host the formation of amino acids and then full proteins, which drive all biochemistry and set the stage for more complex molecules.    “I look at Titan as a big, frozen, prebiotic casserole,” Bada said, referring to the state before the emergence of life.    “The idea that life could be widespread in the universe, I think, is very credible.”Juan Antonio Morente of the University of Granada in Spain, the lead author of the study, seemed less enthusiastic about the possibility of life on Titan.  He said that Titan is exposed to deadly cosmic rays because it lacks a stable magnetic field.  “Without stable protection from radiation, Morente said, ‘the existence of life is very unlikely.’”    In all, Carroll used the L-word life 11 times in her short 585-word article.  It seems strange Carroll would focus on life now when discussing Morente’s paper.  For one thing, it’s not news; the paper was published in June.1  And the team never used the L-word in the paper.  Apparently Jeffrey Bada,2 a well-known origin-of-life researcher at Scripps, “who was not involved with Morente’s study,” made the statements about electricity, hydrocarbons and life recently – or maybe Carroll was looking for a story with a tie-in to Frankenstein right before Halloween.1.  Morente, Porti, Salinas and Navarro, “Evidence of electrical activity on Titan drawn from the Schumann resonances sent by Huygens probe,” Icarus, Volume 195, Issue 2, June 2008, pages 802-811, doi:10.1016/j.icarus.2008.02.004.  The only statement in the paper that comes close to the idea of life on Titan is in the first paragraph: “Lightning activity would considerably increase the probability of organic and pre-biotic molecules being formed.”2.  Jeffrey Bada was part of another Halloween prank last week: see the 10/20/2008 entry.Creepy.  To learn about the real Frankenstein, listen to this podcast.  Truth is stranger than fiction.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgfeatures PSG can beat Real Madrid without Neymar – by playing as a team He is not the riotous dribbler Neymar can be but he can do damage to Real. The team occupying a distant third place in the Spanish league are not, after all, a vintage Real side, a fact that would make elimination all the harder for PSG to bear.If starting Di María is a no-brainer, Emery will think harder about a couple of other decisions. His deployment of Giovani Lo Celso as a defensive midfielder was another choice that did not pan out as planned in the first leg, as the 21-year-old looked what he was, an inexperienced player operating in a position that is not his best. Thiago Motta or Lassana Diarra look to be wiser options to anchor midfield on Tuesday, with the former’s intricate passing making him the more compelling inclusion.The toughest decision concerns central defence. Emery surprisingly dropped the club captain, Thiago Silva, for the first leg and could plausibly claim that that was a key decision that he got right because 22-year-old Presnel Kimpembe performed with aplomb. Some critics disagreed, arguing that although Kimpembe did well alongside the 23-year-old Marquinhos, Silva’s experience would have enabled PSG to cope better with Real’s late onslaught. That is to forget that Silva was in situ when PSG folded in the Camp Nou last season. If the captain is returned to the starting lineup on Tuesday, he, too, has some atoning to do. As he previewed his team’s Champions League showdown with Real Madrid on Tuesday, Unai Emery posed a question and tried not to sound like a man clutching at straws: “Why does Uefa let group winners play the second legs at home?” the Paris Saint‑Germain manager asked before providing the obvious answer. “Maybe because it is an advantage to play the second leg at home. Real Madrid “It is the first time in PSG’s recent history that we will have that advantage for a big Champions League knockout match and it is up to us to show that playing in Paris is different.”Almost as soon as the final whistle went in the first leg three weeks ago, PSG have been plotting ways to overturn the 3-1 defeat they endured in Madrid. They have done their utmost to ensure there will be a stirring atmosphere at the Parc des Princes, rallying supporters around the slogan Ensemble on va le faire – “Together we are going to do it”.And, still vexed by contentious decisions by officials in previous big European eliminators, they encouraged Uefa to assign a referee of proven pedigree, expressing their approval when the experienced German Felix Brych was appointed. “He will make decisions based on what he sees and what his conscience tells him,” said Emery.All that is fine and dandy but there is no escaping the fact that PSG’s preparations have been jolted by the foot injury that deprives them of Neymar, the player brought in at astronomical cost to help them reach the stars. For Emery, however, no excuse will be tolerated. Losing Neymar was unfortunate, but losing this tie will be construed as careless.“I am confident we can do this because we were the better team for most of the first leg,” said Dani Alves, the slightly lesser vaunted of the Brazilians lured by PSG last summer. Alves is right. PSG looked the more likely victors three weeks ago until, that is, Emery made a ruinous substitution in the 66th minute in the Bernabeu, when the score was 1-1.The decision to replace Edinson Cavani with Thomas Meunier and shift Alves from right-back – where he had been jousting brilliantly with Marcelo – into midfield ceded the initiative to the opposition. Real’s two late goals originated down the flank that Emery thought he had strengthened, while the withdrawal of Cavani took some of the edge off PSG’s attack. The visiting tactician was outmanoeuvred by Zinedine Zidane, who is also under pressure as he returns to France for the first time as a manager on Tuesday.Emery will not survive more misjudgments. Already fortunate to retain his job after last season’s infamous 6-1 defeat by Barcelona and the failure to win Ligue 1, the Spaniard knows knocking out Real is mandatory if he is to have any chance of avoiding the sack this summer, if not before. It is not a forlorn hope – PSG are capable of turning this tie around. “With Neymar PSG are clearly stronger,” said Alves. “Without him, we are still strong.”Indeed they are. Neymar had been directly involved in 41% of PSG’s goals this season before breaking a metatarsal bone two weeks ago but the man who will step into his boots on Tuesday, Ángel Di María, has been crying out for a leading role. It was perplexing that Emery did not even introduce him from the bench in the first leg but the Argentinian, whose goal in the 2-0 win against Troyes on Saturday took his haul to 13 from his past 14 matches, seems certain to be given one of the three forward positions in PSG’s lineup.

In the engineering centre’s basement, a gaggle of mostly young, largely fashionable and extremely hungry men and women are busy emptying steam trays full of scrambled eggs, bacon and home fries (as well as tofu with roasted peppers, for the vegans in the crowd). Some work the room with ease, extending hands and making fast friends. Others find quiet spots to huddle with laptops or other trusted companions. Just as the chatter and laughter threaten to overwhelm the space, a booming voice from the top of the stairs interrupts.“Everyone … shut up!” shouts Matt Johnson, the Toronto filmmaker known for his dark comedy The Dirties and meta-fiction series Nirvanna the Band the Show. “No, I’m kidding.
