A little mistake by the opponent and a goal, we know how to take advantage of errors.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The Frenchman was full of praise for goalkeeper Oblak who managed to deny Aaron Ramsey with an incredible fingertip stop.“Jan is the best keeper at the moment,” said the 27-year-old.“I don’t say that just as he is my teammate, but for the saves he makes and the points he brings us.”Griezmann is expecting a brilliant atmosphere from the supporters as Atletico look to make it to the final in Lyon.“Now we have a nice home return at home and hopefully our fans can help us to go through,” predicted the forward.“We must do it now, we expect a euphoric atmosphere at the Wanda.”last_img read more

On any other day, it could have gone either way and we could have come away with the three points.“At one point I said to Coco [Erik Lamela] ‘one more chance here and we’ve got it’ and then at 3-3, it would be anyone’s game.“But then they get that opportunity to score and it’s so late, it kills you…a real kick in the teeth.“It’s something we have to learn from and hopefully we’ll go into the next couple of games, take that experience and win.”last_img read more

Ministry of Foreign Affairs on New York Times correction of the Immigration

first_img Bahamas repulsed by violence in Paris, says Minister Signing of the Air Passenger Information Services Agreement (APIS) Bahamas congratulates US and Cuba on diplomatic progress Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE3 February 2015On Saturday 31st January, the New York Times wrote a story which in the view of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contained at least four material inaccuracies. Today the New York Times admitted its error by printing the following in its 3rd February edition:Because of an editing error, a picture caption on Saturday for an article about a new immigration policy in the Bahamas that critics say unfairly targets Haitians misstated the effects of the policy on the two boys shown, born in the Bahamas but of Haitian descent. The boys have always been considered Haitian; that is not among the policy changes. (The new policy requires everyone to hold a passport, and as of next fall will also require all schoolchildren who are not citizens to have a student residency permit.)The Minister of Foreign Affairs Fred Mitchell speaking in Barbados tonight to Bahamian students welcomed the correction he said that he did not think that iy went far enough but he felt that the New York Times having conceded and admitted the error, the whole story by the New York Times collapses.

KB Launches Album – 13 Songs in his Music with a Message

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, May 5, 2017 – Nassau –Best-selling rake ‘n scrape artist #Kirkland ‘KB’ Bodie today made entertainment history, releasing an album that marries his conscience collage with a call for action, 13 songs packed with purpose and driven by heartache and hope.   Each of the singles was commissioned by #Save The Bays over a period of three years and were released as a collector’s album in celebration of the environmental advocacy organisation’s third anniversary celebration. “Musicians have been writing and singing about love and their achy-breaky hearts since the beginning of time,” said the legendary KB. “And that’s just what I’m doing with these songs, but the heartache I am writing about is what I see happening to The Bahamas. When I see the conch dying off and I call for Conchservation singing we’re a conchy nation, I’m taking a serious subject and making it fun to make sure people listen. Sing it, dance to it, stomp your feet and your fists if you want, but you’re going to get the message without someone lecturing to you and that’s what matters. People listen and they care and if they care, they do something. The stories in my songs are meant to plant a seed for change to protect our environment, our people, our resources.”News of the record’s release came during a press conference in Freeport, Grand Bahama.    “KB’s music has been an important vessel for carrying the message that we have an obligation to be stewards of this environment and preserve it for our children and their children’s children,” said Save The Bays Chairman Joe Darville. “His music starting with ‘Rise up, Bahamas, Let’s Save the Bays’ to ‘Hold da feet to da fire to Das Nasty and all the others have dominated the music scene over the past few years and made everyone feel a part of this movement demanding transparency, freedom of information and a government that is accountable. At the same time, they’ve struck a chord with our overall environmental stewardship message with songs like Oil Fish and Save our Nassau Grouper.”With a colourful cover depicting a coral reef teeming with fish in the foreground and heavy equipment threatening to destroy it in the background, the album features a new single released for the first time, Dream for Our Bahamaland. Its chorus, says Darville, is as touching as any country song written by someone who has lost the love of his life but dreams it will return. “I see a place where our children can run free, where our air is clean and our lands are drug free, where there’s no threat of war and love still stands, that’s my dream for our Bahamaland.”  The album will be available at Unexso and Pearlmart in Freeport and at Stuart Cove Dive in Nassau for $10 and can be downloaded from iTunes. Proceeds will go toward the education arm of Save The Bays for its Youth Environment Ambassadors program and other community awareness efforts.   Save The Bays has championed citizens’ rights to information and participation in a consultation process in matters that impact them and their communities. Its first Freedom of Information rally in 2014 drew representatives from across the political, social and civil society spectrum and its Facebook page has more than 20,000 friends.

Valdes details the whole process these children go through after being detained, and it is not what you expect. The interview with Valdes can be seen by clicking here.Thursday, Criminal Justice Attorney Saman Nasseri joined KUSI’s Carlos Amezcua on Good Morning San Diego to further explain what exactly President Trump’s executive order means, and how it impacts the San Diego community. Nasseri said the number of people coming to our border seeking asylum is actually higher this year than it was last year.During the interview, Carlos asked Nasseri, “What is the difference between an asylum seeker and an illegal immigrant?” Nasseri responded, “An asylum seeker is someone that comes to the port of entry and says, “I have a fear of returning back to my country, I would like asylum.” That individual with their family, is going to get processed. They’re going to get processed through, get their interview, get their documents, go through the immigration court, or through the asylum office, depending on the case. They’re not going to get apprehended, they’re not considered illegal entries. Its people who are just apprehended at the border, who are just trying to cross the border illegally, those are the ones that are being taken into custody and prosecuted. Later they say, “I have a fear of returning to my country, don’t deport me, please.” They get processed separately from the asylum seekers. The last group of people who has been grouped in here is the unaccompanied minors. Those are not children that are being housed away from their families, those are children that are sent here by themselves.” Posted: June 21, 2018 Updated: 7:54 AMlast_img read more

Proposition 6 would repeal the recent hike in state gas taxes and vehicle fees. We asked drivers who were filling up their cars about the idea of getting rid of the recently adopted tax increase. Drivers like Larry Arthur said the initiative would finally give citizens the chance to do something.“I think there’s a groundswell of people who realize there was a gas tax that got lumped on us. We didn’t have any say in the matter, but now, we got a chance to say, ‘no, we’re not going to stand for it.’ We’re going to repeal it,” Arthur said.Governor Jerry Brown and Democrats in the California Legislature said the tax revenues are essential to funding mass transit and a huge backlog of road repair projects. Some drivers like Patty Kimbrell were skeptical about that claim.“The politicians and the government, they need to make sure that what they’re stating funding is for, really should be what it’s allocated for- and not put into other funds,” Kimbrell said.In several recent polls, two-out-of-three surveys show the measure would be defeated. However, SurveyUSA had a different result, showing 46% in favor of repeal and 33% opposed. last_img read more

Male students have the option of wearing pants or shorts, according to the email.Before the ban, female students were allowed to wear skirts that were not excessively tight or form fitting and that were no shorter than 3 inches from the top of the kneecap while standing upright, according to the school’s dress code.In response to the ban, the students created a petition on change.org and as of Tuesday morning 2,669 people have signed the petition.Students also planned a peaceful protest that was set to begin at 7:15 a.m. Tuesday in front of the school.Cathedral Catholic High School is a private school located in Carmel Valley serving roughly 1,600 students in grades 9-12. The school charges an annual tuition of $18,500.The school’s principal, Kevin Calkins complete email to all the students detailing the situation and the new dress code for the 2019-2020 school year“Dear students:I am writing to communicate some changes to the school dress code starting with the 2019-2020 school year. The most significant change is that skirts will no longer be an option for girls.Dress code is a perennial challenge. The dress code exists for at least three good reasons: to foster unity, to encourage modesty, and to minimize pressure to conform to particular styles or clothing brands. Basically we hope to foster a faith-based environment where students are focused on learning and not on outward appearances.The main challenge with dress code has been the length of girls’ skirts. The school has made many attempts to rectify this challenge. The administration has worked with the Parent Association, has issued thousands of hours of detention, has made school-wide announcements (e.g., CCTV, orientations), and has worked with students one-on-one. None of this has had the desired effect of maintaining an overall modest skirt length in compliance with the dress code. The school heard feedback that part of the issue is that the skirts offered by Dennis Uniform did not fir the variety of girls’ bodies that attend Cathedral. We then decided to allow greater flexibility in where students could purchase skirts, so long as they followed the minimum guidelines. That did not work either. The administration eventually opted against strictly enforcing current dress code guidelines because of their negative effect that could have on the environment. Male faculty feel uncomfortable addressing female students about the length of their skirts, and even female faculty have expressed frustration with the ongoing challenge of dress code. There are challenges with boys too, but nothing that will require a change in options.Instead of skirts, girls will be allowed to wear the following:-Pants-Capri Pants-Bermuda ShortsThe color options for the above-mentioned are navy blue, black, or khaki. Denim fabric, leggings, and athletic wear are not allowed. Boys will also have the new color options for pants/shorts. In addition to holding boys more accountable to dress code guidelines (e.g., length of hair or facial hair), and implementing a restorative approach to dealing with dress code violations, there will be no other changes this year.Sincerely,Dr. CalkinsPrincipalWhat do you think of the school’s decision to ban skirts from the dress code?

The bonus depreciation provision and other temporary provisions have routinely been temporarily and retroactively extended over the past several years as part of a “tax extenders” package.The Senate Finance Committee has passed a tax extenders package that includes a two year extension of the 50 percent bonus depreciation provisions as well as other American Soybean Association (ASA) priorities, such as the biodiesel tax credit and the higher Section 179 expensing limits.
