Pogba’s problems don’t concern Deschamps

first_imgDidier Deschamps has no concerns about Paul Pogba amid reports the France midfielder’s relationship with Jose Mourinho has broken down.Pogba was a key player as Les Bleus won the World Cup at Russia 2018, scoring in the 4-2 defeat of Croatia in the final.Although Pogba has netted four goals in all competitions for Manchester United this season, he was stripped of the vice-captaincy by Mourinho, who denied a training ground row between the pair, while the midfielder has since claimed he has been banned by the club from speaking to the media.

Champions League: Pep Guardiola admits win in Naples will be tall order

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola said it will be “very difficult” for his side to continue their 13-match winning run in all competitions this season when they take on Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday.The Premier League leaders have taken maximum points so far in Group F and can guarantee a place in the knockout stages with a victory at the Stadio San Paolo.Guardiola described Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli as one of the best he has ever faced as a player or manager after City defeated them 2-1 in a closely fought tie at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month, and the Spaniard is expecting an even tougher contest in the return fixture.”We need one more win to qualify, but we are going to the team that are leading Serie A and everybody knows the type of football they play in their own stadium, so it’s going to be very difficult,” Guardiola told a news conference.”But it’s a great opportunity for us to book our place and we’re going to try our best to do it.”City travel to Naples after goals from Leroy Sane, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling handed them a 3-2 win away to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Saturday.Sane’s superb left-footed strike was his eighth goal of the season in all competitions, a return that has marked him out as a man Napoli are keen to keep a close watch on.Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj was confident, however, of being able to deny the German winger.advertisement”He is a strong player, technically and physically strong, and we will talk about him, but I have already studied how to stop him,” the Albanian said on local radio.Napoli were held at home by Inter Milan after the defeat in Manchester but have since beaten Genoa and Sassuolo in back-to-back Serie A fixtures to restore their fine form this season and open up a three-point lead at the top of the table.”We’ve been good at reacting and playing our own game,” Hysaj added. “We’ve been very mentally strong when we’re losing games, even in Manchester we reacted and eventually we could even the tie.”last_img read more

Sterling Rescues Man City; Subs Extend Perfect United Start

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP) — Raheem Sterling came to Manchester City’s rescue with a stoppage-time winner in a frenzied finale at Bournemouth, and Manchester United overcame Leicester’s resistance to maintain its perfect English Premier League start.Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini struck in the final 20 minutes to seal a 2-0 victory over Leicester on Saturday. In reeling off three successive victories, United has scored 10 goals without reply to deliver an emphatic statement of its determination to win a first title since 2013.“I’m not getting carried away,” said manager Jose Mourinho, recalling last season’s three-match opening winning streak before United tumbled to finish sixth.City has experienced a trickier start to the season. But it avoided a second draw thanks to Sterling’s intervention in the seventh minute of stoppage time to beat Bournemouth 2-1. The relief was clear in the wild celebrations deemed excessive by the referee. Having already been booked, Sterling saw red after receiving a second yellow card.There could be further recriminations. After police announced an investigation into the melee during the celebrations, City striker Sergio Aguero responded to video circulating on Twitter by posting: “About their steward, I did not hit anyone, this allegation is false, and the tv pictures prove it.”While City has collected seven points out of a possible nine, Bournemouth slumped to a third consecutive loss.Crystal Palace and West Ham are also winless. Palace was beaten by Swansea 2-0, while West Ham lost at Newcastle 3-0.Newcastle picked up its first points along with fellow newcomer Brighton, which drew with 10-man Watford 0-0. Huddersfield extended the unbeaten start to its first Premier League campaign by holding Southampton 0-0.CITY FIGHTBACKCity recovered after falling behind when Charlie Daniels spectacularly struck into the roof of the net from a tight angle. Gabriel Jesus leveled in the 21st minute but it took until Sterling’s late deflected strike for City to prevail, triggering the outpouring of exuberance.Sterling had already been booked and was shown a second yellow card.“If you cannot celebrate with the fans the best solution is not to invite the fans,” City manager Pep Guardiola said. “You can imagine how happy he is, how happy the fans are.”Some spilled onto the pitch, with two arrested. Police officers also held back Benjamin Mendy and exchanged words with Aguero.“Officers are reviewing CCTV of the pitch encroachment as part of an ongoing investigation to establish whether any other offences may have been committed,” Dorset Police said in a statement. “This investigation is in the very early stages.”SUBSTITUTES DELIVERAt Old Trafford, Leicester was proving hard for United to break down. Even when the hosts won a penalty, Romelu Lukaku’s spot kick was saved.Then the substitutes started to arrive and quickly delivered. After less than three minutes on the pitch, Rashford netted in the 70th from Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s corner.Mkhitaryan then made way for Fellaini, who was on target in the 82nd with a goal all the substitutes played a part in. Rashford sent the ball down the left flank to Jesse Lingard, who had replaced Anthony Martial, and his shot was turned in by Fellaini from close range.BENITEZ BOOSTNewcastle lost its opening matches to Tottenham and Huddersfield without scoring but managed to hit three against West Ham for its first win. Joselu, Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic scored to lift the gloom surrounding Rafa Benitez’s side.DE BOER DESPAIRPalace isn’t only winless at the start of Frank de Boer’s reign as manager. The south London club also hasn’t scored. Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew did net for Swansea at Selhurst Park as the south Wales club claimed its first win.UNBEATEN WATFORDWatford was a man short from the 24th minute against Brighton, after Miguel Britos was sent off for a studs-up tackle on Anthony Knockaert, but still prolonged its unbeaten start. It was a third red card in 20 league games for Britos.Brighton hit the woodwork twice, but a draw did enable the south-coast club to collect its first point in the topflight since 1983.___ROB HARRIS, AP Sports WriterMore AP Premier League coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/PremierLeagueTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Conflicts in sports awards committee

first_img S Kannan New DelhiAugust 13, 2019UPDATED: August 13, 2019 08:42 IST (AIBA Photo)In a major departure from tradition, the ministry of youth affairs and sports has formed just one committee to decide on the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Arjuna Awards, Dhyan Chand Awards, Dronacharya Awards, Tenzing Norgay Awards plus a few more awards. Before this, there used to be three different committees.By including former table tennis star Kamlesh Mehta in the committee this year as well, the ministry has flouted its own guidelines. As per the rules and regulations, there should be a minimum two-year gap before being nominated again on the panel.To treat this as an oversight would be easy but Mail Today has learnt that officials in the sports ministry were keen to put Kamlesh in the committee. There is no doubting his acumen and hard-work in the meetings but if norms have been laid down, they should be followed.The second issue pertains to MC Mary Kom being included in the awards committee. As an active athlete it would have been good had she been allowed to focus just on her training. In their eagerness to put her name, the ministry has perhaps overlooked the fact that her coach Chhote Lal Yadav has applied for the Dronacharya Award.If the ministry is not going not change the names in the committee, the least one would expect from her MaryKom is she recuses herself when Yadav’s name comes up for discussion.In 2017, a similar situation had cropped up when Pullela Gopichand was on the Dronacharya Awards committee and the name of his coach Gangula Prasad had cropped up. It’s learnt, at that time, Gopi had recused himself.advertisementOne hopes before the new committee meets in the Capital on August 16 and 17 there are no glitches as “conflicts” of this nature can invite trouble.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Canadas two major railways well poised for trade headwinds in 2019 analysts

first_imgThe moves follow a major backlog in grain shipments last winter. However, both railways have roared back from the bottleneck. CP moved 2.64 million tonnes of Canadian grain and grain products in October, a company record for monthly shipments that it nearly matched in November.CN reported the highest quarterly revenues in its 99-year history in October, spurred on by revenue growth of between 15 percent and 25 percent for grain and fertilizers as well as metals and minerals, forest products and coal.CP, though lacking its rival’s broad access to maritime ports, traffics heavily in bulk commodities such as grain, potash, coal and fertilizer that amount to 44 percent of its revenue, according to a DBRS report from October.“There’s this shift in China where the diet is changing to more Western-style habits and they’re eating a lot more grain. That also demands a lot more potash 1/8for fertilizer 3/8 than the traditional seafood-based diet,” Deutsche Bank analyst Seldon Clarke said. MONTREAL – Canada’s two major railways are well-positioned to weather potential economic headwinds and the U.S.-China trade war, analysts say, as ongoing investments in new cars and track bolster crude-by-rail and commodities shipments.Canadian National Railway Co. and Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. shipped 23 percent more oil and petroleum in 2018 to drive a four percent increase in total freight traffic, according to the Association of American Railways.Crude-by-rail exports have spiked over the past year amidst a pipeline shortage and a big discount on Western Canadian Select oil, hitting a record 327,229 barrels per day in October, a 58 percent year-over-year increase, according to the National Energy Board. With Enbridge’s Line 3 not set to come online until late this year and the Trans Mountain expansion facing uncertainty, CN and CP can expect continued high demand for shipments of the black stuff, DBRS analyst Amaury Baudouin said.The railways have drawn on lessons from unfilled contracts following the crude-by-rail boom five years ago, entering into multi-year contracts with oil shippers that set minimum volumes and higher fees to help insulate them from volatile demand, he said.“I think lessons of the past have been learned, and a lot of this capacity is being contracted on a take-or-pay basis…which means that if the economics of Western Canadian oil change a lot, CN and CP will still have that oil to move around to the U.S. refineries and the Gulf Coast.”In 2017 petroleum, chemicals and plastics brought in 16 percent of CN’s $13.04 billion in revenue and 14 percent of CP’s $6.38-billion revenues. With crude comprising only a portion of those categories, surging sales will have a limited impact on the bottom line and the stock price, Baudouin cautioned.Over the past year, Montreal-based CN has invested in rail cars, track doubling and expanded rail yards, particularly between Chicago and the West Coast, to the tune of $3.5 billion, 30 percent more than its three-year average. It has plans to keep building in 2019.Calgary-based CP, meanwhile, aims to have 1,000 more grain cars in service by this spring, following CN’s order for 1,000 hoppers last May.center_img The expanded port at Prince Rupert, B.C., where CN has laid track directly on the dock, is another reason for long-term optimism. It offers shippers a swift route for Asian-produced goods, avoiding the congestion of Vancouver and Los Angeles. Meanwhile, more grain is being stuffed into shipping containers and dropped on carriers bound for China, he said.Lumber and automotive parts, however, pose a potential weak point for both railways.“The American housing market is looking pretty weak and not going to have a sharp turnaround any time soon. Same goes for the auto industry in the U.S.,” Clarke said, pointing to plummeting lumber prices. Automotive shipment revenues dropped 21 percent for CP and 10 percent for CN in 2017, with further declines in 2018.Ongoing steel and aluminum tariffs affect only a fraction of the railways’ shipments, but CN and CP remain vulnerable to the fallout from U.S.-China trade tensions and a potential economic slowdown following a decade of global growth, Clarke said.“You’re seeing a slowdown in economic activity in China, and it’s probably a fair guess to say that that starts to impact North America at some point.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more

Each poster is a validation of vitality and liveliness for more than 70 years after they were created. “Nandalal and his associates produced around 400 posters for the Congress convention at Haripura, held in February 1938,” reflects the Director General. “These posters were all produced on handmade paper with pigments made from local earth and stones, and mounted on straw boards; none were printed or mass-produced,” he affirms. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardSharing the history – “To imagine that they were executed in 1937; commissioned by Gandhi for the Indian National Congress Party meeting in 1938, at Haripura – these are benchmarks in Indian history.” Nandalal Bose looked at cultural idioms and the fabric of the common man when he created images of musicians, iron smith, tailors, even a monk creating pottery, an esraj player, a veena player, or just women doing their chores. One of the finest among these posters is the Bull Fighter. In that poster, the vigour and tenacity of the man and bull are shown through strong, gestural lines and swaths of bright, bold colours. Bull Fighter was prominently displayed at the conference grounds at Haripura. Deceptively simple in appearance and invoking flavour of folk painting the Haripura Posters are amalgamation of the decorative and the calligraphic art with a rare ingenuity as well as personal insignia. “At the Venice Biennale we will display them as independent works of art but history says they were done in order to decorate a temporary township built for the annual session of the Indian National Congress in the remote village of Haripura in early 1938,” adds Gadanayak. According to historical notes by art historian R Siva Kumar, the township was built of local materials and in harmony with the rural surroundings. The decorations were conceived, both in style and idiom, following the same aesthetics and were designed to complement the temporary structures. Sivakumar wrote in an essay that they have to be imagined in their original context as part of a broader design to be fully appreciated. The posters also evoke Gandhian ethics and creativity. Gadanayak as Commissioner of India Pavilion, is proud to be part of the Venice Biennale 2019, one of the finest expositions in the world of contemporary and avant garde art.last_img read more

Memorable moments from Game 3 of NBA Finals

BROWSE #wethenorth | golden state warriors | nba | nba finals | toronto raptors The Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 123-109 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Oakland, Calif., giving Toronto a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.Here were five key moments from Wednesday’s game:KLAY A NO-GOMinutes before the game, the Warriors made the call that star guard Klay Thompson would not play after suffering a hamstring injury on Sunday in Toronto.The decision put veteran Shaun Livingston in the starting lineup.One half of the Splash Brothers with Stephen Curry, Thompson was the Warriors’ third-leading scorer in the playoffs entering Game 3. With Kevin Durant and Kevon Looney also out, the Warriors were missing three key players.MONEY GREENDanny Green has struggled with his shot for much of the playoffs, but the Raptors guard had a big first quarter in Game 3.After Curry nailed a three-pointer to cut what once was a double-digit Raptors lead to four, Green hit his third three of the first quarter with two seconds left to give Toronto a 36-29 edge.Green had nine points in the first quarter, one more than he had in all of Game 2.LOWRY HEATS UPAfter a tough Game 2 in which he fouled out, Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry looked much more comfortable in the first half of Game 3.With the Warriors threatening to make a run at the end of the first half after the Raptors went nearly five minutes without scoring, Lowry drained a three off a nice feed from Serge Ibaka and then drove to the net for two more points in the final minute.Lowry finished the first half with 15 points, two more than he had in all of Game 2. On the negative side, though, he also picked up his third foul in the final minute of the first half of Game 3.After a Golden State basket late, the Raptors took a 60-52 lead into the locker-room.KAWHI IMPOSES HIS WILLRaptors star Kawhi Leonard stepped up in the third quarter, making sure the Warriors didn’t repeat their Game 2 heroics when they went on an 18-0 run to open the second half.Leonard, held to nine points in the first half, scored 15 points in the third quarter and was a force all over the court.A key sequence came late after Lowry was blocked on a drive to the net. Leonard tracked down the offensive rebound because of his hustle and found Green for a three to put Toronto up 96-80. The Raptors led 96-83 after three quarters, despite Curry putting up 40 points.FINISHING TOUCHThe Raptors got excellent play from Lowry and great energy from Ibaka in nearly five minutes to open the fourth quarter with Leonard on the bench.When Leonard returned, he made an immediate impact. He nailed a pull-up jump shot and then drove by Curry for two more to give the Raptors their biggest lead of the night _ 111-94 with 5:42 left.Later, Leonard escaped a double team, feeding it to Fred VanVleet, who nailed a three right just before the shot clock expired to put the Raptors up 118-105 with 1:37 left, all but sealing it. read more

Former Chief Minister Mike Misick to run as an Independent candidate in

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, June 29, 2016 – Michael Misick today announced that he will offer in the upcoming General Elections and while he is not running on the PNP ticket due to some party in fighting, he is running as an independent who still bleeds yellow.  “It’s new grounds for me, because if you cut me you will see PNP, you will see yellow in my blood.  That’s why I say it’s a difficult day for me, but I believe it’s the best decision for this country because I believe i have a contribution to make.”The former premier had a list of what he believes should be done, could have been done and must be done for a better Turks and Caicos and pushed an anti-colonialism message that made the current administration, in particular the current premier Rufus Ewing seem like putty in the hands of the UK.  He believes too many people are neglected. “These things cannot continue to go on.  So one of the most important thing in our country is representation for our people.   And unfortunately, this PNP, people don’t feel like they can call them.”He pointed out that he and Hon Rufus Ewing are different types, and Mike likened his leadership style to Moses of the Bible; “And I was a politician before him.  I’m a PNP, my views are known to them, some of these things I’ve said now, I said to them two years ago, and so sometimes you have to do things yourself,” where he wants to see his own people empowered and makes no allowance for the British to be boss or to for Turks and Caicos Islanders to be experimental guinea pigs. “You know I’m sick and tired of these people experimenting with us, as if we are guinea pigs.” Misick slammed the current policy allowing the Integrity Commission to run as hound dogs and not watch dogs as he put it, and said the country could actually make use of Haitians who come in illegally by boat.  “Instead of sending everyone back home, maybe we could encourage some form of farming, so that it helps the country as well as it helps others.” Michael Eugene Misick said that he should not have to wait until after the SIPT Trials alleging he was corrupt in office.  “It will no longer cause me to delay and delay and delay.  Delay for what?   $60 million dollars, and there is no evidence of any corruption.”And when Magnetic Media asked him why he did not get done the things he believes should have been done when he was in government from 2003 to 2009; there was this.  “We thought we had at least two more years left in that term and at least couple more terms.  And so, quite frankly, we ran out of time, the British government intervened, they overthrew a legitimate government.”As to a question about this electability…. Michael Misick is certain that he will secure enough of the 7,727 Voters to be among the five at large candidates in the House of Assembly following the 2016 run-off.  “I believe, I believe, do you believe, do you believe in Turks and Caicos.”last_img read more

WhatsApp set to disrupt digital payments market in India says GlobalData

first_imgPaytm’s Founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma echoed similar views last month, saying WhatsApp’s parent Facebook is killing the open platform of the unified payments interface (UPI) system through “its custom close garden implementation”.WhatsApp pay currently allows users to transfer money largely among WhatsApp users and not to other UPI IDs.GlobalData also noted that even though India’s e-payments market is expected to grow in the coming years, most e-wallet operators are not profitable in India yet. In fact, some who have been issued licenses by the Reserve Bank of India are still evaluating the situation before setting up operations.”We expect consolidations to be the force in the next few years, with the bigger players focusing on opportunities to expand their footprint in India and other markets. In the meantime, smaller e-payments players are tapping into unidentified opportunities to stay relevant in the market,” said Tiga. LONDON, ENGLAND – AUGUST 03: The Whatsapp app logo is displayed on an iPhone on August 3, 2016 in London, England.Photo by Carl Court/Getty ImagesWhatsApp’s recently launched payment option is expected to disrupt the digital payments landscape in India, according to a research report by GlobalData.The data and analytics firm said the Indian payments marketspace is already swarmed with over 60 non-banking players such as Paytm, MobiKwik, Amazon Pay and Flipkart (PhonePe).Established players such as Paytm are also feeling the push and fear that their position will be challenged with the entry of WhatsApp payments, according to the report.”E-payments in India are already witnessing unprecedented growth since the government’s announcement of demonetisation in late 2016. Now with the foray of WhatsApp, the country’s smaller and struggling e-payments companies fear a unique threat in an already crowded and competitive ecosystem,” Prarthna Tiga, analyst at GlobalData said in a report dated March 8.last_img read more

All men are unknown at this time. Of the suspects, two men have been identified as the “Nike Baseball Cap Bandit” and the “Forever Loyal Bandit.” They are wanted in connection with a series of bank robberies in the area with the latest being a SunTrust bank on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast D.C. on Nov. 9 and a Capital One bank on Columbia Pike in Arlington County, Virginia on Oct. 30, respectively. Both bandits are Black.According to the FBI, the “Nike Baseball Cap Bandit” is between 50-60 years old, about 5’7” tall, with a medium build. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to his the identification and arrest.The “Forever Loyal Bandit” is described as a serial bank robber, who has held up banks in the Falls Church, Virginia area, including the Capital One Bank at Seven Corners Center that has been robbed twice.The FBI titles unknown serial bandits with nicknames from what they wear when conducting the crime to catch the suspected criminals.Earlier in the year, two suspects were arrested in an armed bank robbery at a TD Bank on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast D.C. Sunny Parakh, 30, known as the “Sharp Dressed Bandit” was arrested in April and charged with three robberies in Northern Virginia, including one at the Presidential Bank in Arlington and two in Alexandria. Police said he also committed bank robberies in Dupont Circle in D.C., according to news reports.Thomas Anthony George, 66, of Southeast Washington was arrested in March for a robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank.

Sometimes I think of robbery as “pre-murder” of crime.”According to usnews.com, an average bank robber in 2010 only netted $7,500 dollars. Cyber bank robberies are the new alternative. The biggest one reported, so far, was in February by cybercriminals named Carbanak that raided 100 banks in 30 countries over a two-year period. The payoff was $1 billion dollars.last_img read more

Syria siege on Aleppo alarms antiquities experts

first_img Top Stories The images, taken from amateur video filmed inside Aleppo, were shown at a gathering of antiquities experts from across the Middle East, who warned that Syria’s 18-month-old conflict is wiping out its archaeological treasures.“Syria is a museum of Islamic history,” said Walid al-Akhras, professor of Islamic History and Archaeology at Aleppo University. “That who fires a gun at history is as if he has fired a cannon at the future.”Aleppo, where there have been settlements for more than 10,000 years, has been the site of fierce battles for more than two months between regime troops and rebels fighters that have brought relentless shelling and gunbattles. Over the weekend, a fire sparked by fighting tore through the city’s centuries-old covered market. At 12 kilometers (7.5 miles), it is the Middle East’s longest souk. The fire burnt 500 shops, burning through wooden doors and scorching stalls and vaulted passageways.The experts Monday, however, said the true extent of the damage in Aleppo and at historic sites around the country is still unknown because experts have not been able to get in to assess the damage.The Syrian conflict has killed more than 30,000 people, according to activists. Hundreds of thousands are seeking refuge outside the country and entire towns have been destroyed by shelling. Associated PressCAIRO (AP) – The pictures shown Monday at a gathering of Arab antiquities experts gave a glimpse into the damage Syria’s civil war has wreaked on the heritage of one of the world’s most ancient cities.The wooden gates of Aleppo’s medieval Citadel are gone, a stone engraving above it damaged. A bomb crater now marks the entrance, and its walls are pockmarked with bullet holes. A stump is all that remains of the minaret of the 14th century al-Kiltawiya school. A rocket has crashed into el-Mihmandar Mosque, also built some 700 years ago. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “People haven’t stopped crying over the lives lost and the bloodshed to begin crying over our lost heritage,” said al-Akhras, who fled Aleppo.Monday’s emergency conference organized by the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) at Cairo University aimed to raise alarm bells over the destruction of antiquities around Syria. The Saudi-based ISESCO, comprises 50 Middle Eastern, African and Asian nations.Participants said that ultimately the regime of President Bashar Assad is to blame for the destruction.“The government is responsible first and last for the protection of antiquities,” said al-Akhras.Participants expressed concern over looting that has already taken place at museums and the continued shelling of ancient sites, including in Aleppo. Some of the country’s most significant sites have been turned into bases for soldiers and rebels, including historic citadels and Turkish bath houses known as hamams.Egypt’s antiquities minister, Mohammed Ibrahim, said the world “wants to avoid an Iraq scenario” when looters made off with some of that country’s finest treasures during the U.S.-led military invasion in 2003. 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Comments   Share   Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Sponsored Stories ISESCO representative Abdel-Aziz Salem said saving Aleppo amounts to protecting not just a city and its people, but “Islamic and Arab identity.”Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, has been a crossroads of civilizations for millennia. It has been occupied by the Greeks, Byzantines and multiple Islamic dynasties. As one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities, Aleppo’s old center was added in 1986 to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites, and the city was named by ISESCO as the capital of Islamic culture in 2006.Cairo University Antiquities Professor Mahmoud al-Banna said he is in disbelief at what the Syrians are doing to their own heritage.“What Syrians are doing to their city is no different than what the Tatars or Mongols did,” he said, referring to invasions in the 13th and 14th centuries that devastated the region.“We are talking about the history of all people, of humankind and not just of Islam,” he said. “The war has been going on for 18 months, but you _ the world_ where have you been?”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Seized Argentine navy ship arrives back home

first_imgThe United Nations’ International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea ordered the ship’s release last month after Argentina argued that warships are immune from seizure.“I came to join our president in this important moment for all Argentines,” said Andrea Zapata, 43, a teacher from Buenos Aires province. “It’s not only important for those who support her political project but also because the Libertad ship is a symbol of our country and something all Argentines must defend from those who want to impose their own interests.”Argentina, currently Latin America’s third-biggest economy, engaged in the biggest sovereign debt default in history a decade ago. The government has restructured about 92 percent of its world record $95 billion debt default since then.But Fernandez refuses to pay the holdouts, calling NML Capital and others “vulture funds” for buying debt for pennies on the U.S. dollar in 2002, when Argentina’s economy was in its worst crisis, and now trying to collect in full.The fiery, center-left leader says it was their loss for refusing two opportunities to swap defaulted bonds for new, less valuable bonds that the state has reliably paid since 2005. When the vessel docked after its long journey, they broke into cheers and claps, many waving Argentine flags and snapping pictures with cameras. Three planes soared over the ship’s masts spewing smoke in the white and blue colors of the Argentine flag.President Cristina Fernandez arrived two hours later in a helicopter that landed on the ship. She greeted the sailors and called the Libertad a symbol of Argentina’s sovereignty and hailed its return as a victory.“Ladies and gentlemen, officers from the Libertad ship, welcome to the homeland!” Fernandez said in a nationally televised speech.“You’re witnessing what might come to symbolize the unlimited defense of Argentina’s rights and the respect of its sovereignty.”Ghana courts ordered the ship held in October on a claim by a Cayman Islands-based hedge fund, NML Capital Ltd. Its owner, American billionaire Paul Singer, leads a group demanding payment in full, plus interest _ about $350 million _ for dollar-based Argentine bonds bought at fire-sale prices after Argentina’s 2001-2002 economic collapse forced a sharp devaluation of its currency.The conflict over the ship reached an especially tense moment in November when Argentine sailors brandished weapons to block Ghanaian officials from moving the vessel to a less busy dock.

We listened to our people.”Members of the political opposition called the welcoming ceremony an effort to boost support for Fernandez at a time when Argentines are frustrated by high inflation, violent crime, allegations of high-profile corruption, and government currency controls that make it difficult to buy dollars.Critics say Argentines were humiliated by the government’s failure to foresee that the ship would be seized in Ghana and other ports where it docked during training exercises.Anti-government activists handed out fliers in Mar del Plata encouraging people to join a pot-banging protest in the evening. “Stop the insecurity, the corruption and inflation for an independent justice,” the fliers read.___Associated Press writers Almudena Calatrava in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Luis Andres Henao in Santiago, Chile, contributed to this report.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
