Nuno refuses to criticise referee

first_imgWolverhampton Wanderer’s boss Nuno Espirito Santo declined to comment on referee Roger East after his side were held to a controversial 1-1 draw at Bournemouth on Saturday.The official, who was a late replacement at the Vitality, made questionable decisions that influenced the final result.Raul Jimenez converted from the spot to earn a draw for his team but the controversy was rife when he failed to spot the handball of defender Chris Mepham“The result we never know and justice in football is sometimes not so fair if you want,” said the Portuguese via Sky.“But what I saw was a very emotional and competitive game, both teams trying to win the game. The first half, I think we played really well, second half not so well.“But against a very tough team, Bournemouth here in Vitality Stadium is very tough, they have good players and Eddie [Howe] is doing a fantastic job.“So happy with the performance of the boys in such a difficult space.“When circumstances and incidents happen in the game, you cannot lose your focus.

Caretaker appointed by judge to clean up Pacific Beach hoarder house

first_img March 16, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A court-appointed receiver has taken control of a Pacific Beach “hoarder house” that has accumulated trash, created unsafe conditions for children and harbored vermin in recent years, the San Diego City Attorney’s Office announced Friday.The office secured a court order on Tuesday ordering the residents of the Crownhill Road home to vacate the property to allow a caretaker to begin supervising cleanup at the home.The problem started after the former owner of the house off Soledad Mountain Road, Shirley Sanders, died in 2012. One of Sanders’ sons and some acquaintances moved in following her death and a growing pile of trash, furniture and other items cascaded out of the four-bedroom house and into the yard, according to the City Attorney’s Office.The problems mounted as the piles of furniture and trash inside the house created safety hazards for the occupants and emergency responders. Bathroom sinks drained into buckets and water leaks created mold throughout the house, the office said.One neighbor reported trapping 14 rats inside his garage and finding three more drowned in his swimming pool, thanks to the junk at the nearby Sanders house. Other concerned people reported the house several times to County Child Protective Services, saying that infants or young children were living in unsafe conditions there, according to the office.“This kind of conduct threatens the health and safety of our communities and destroys our quality of life,” City Attorney Mara Elliott said. “By intervening, we bring relief and peace of mind to affected neighbors, and help for hoarders who often have underlying issues that need to be addressed.”Officials say they tried unsuccessfully to work with the property owner to bring it into compliance with health and safety laws. But after dozens of warning letters from multiple agencies, the City Attorney’s Office on Tuesday obtained an injunction prohibiting Lauren E. Sanders of Lubbock, Texas, who is trustee of the Shirley T. Sanders Trust, from continuing to maintain a public nuisance.San Diego Superior Court Judge Randa Trapp appointed a receiver to bring the property into compliance. The occupants were ordered to vacate the property within 72 hours or face arrest for trespassing.The city will recover costs of the rehabilitation, cleanup, and legal fees from the property owner, officials said.

Hundreds of caravan travelers waiting at San Ysidro Port of Entry

CBP will communicate with Mexican authorities for operational awareness on this issue of capacity within CBP facilities as appropriate.”Earlier in the day, some of the caravan travelers — many of whom say they’re fleeing violence in their home countries — were at a cross-border rally 6 miles west of the port of entry. The refugees milled about at Playas de Tijuana on the Mexican side of the fence near its terminus at the Pacific Ocean. North of the fence, another 50 supporters rallied in Friendship Park, at the southern end of the United States’ Pacific Coast.Some supporters of the caravan scaled the border fence, apparently clamoring up from the Mexican side, although no one attempted to cross north into the United States.The citizens of countries in Central America and their caravan leaders, a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, told the Los Angeles Times that the migrants are asylum-seekers fleeing from dangers in their home countries. The Times reported that “no more than 200 of the group will go to the Tijuana-San Diego crossing and request U.S. protection.”Over the weekend, they’ve been engaging in legal orientation sessions to understand their rights and what to expect at the U.S. entrance, the Times reported.In San Diego on Saturday, a group of demonstrators marched from Balboa Park to Chicano Park.The caravan has been making national headlines for the past month after catching the attention of President Donald Trump. It first began with about 1,000 people March 25 in the Mexican city of Tapachula, near the Guatemala border, drawing comments from Trump as evidence of what he and his aides portrayed as a significant threat, the Post reported.In the intervening month, the caravan migrants’ numbers have dwindled significantly.Customs and Border Protection officials said on Saturday that some of the migrants in the caravan had tried to cross the border near San Ysidro since Friday. No estimate was given on the number of border-crossing attempts that had taken place.Young children — and in one case, a pregnant woman — were detected among people trying to enter the U.S. illegally through “a dark, treacherous canyon that is notorious for human and drug smuggling,”  CBP Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott saidScott said it was “unconscionable” that children were being smuggled into the country in what he referred to as dangerous conditions.In the statement, he warned the remaining caravan members to follow the law.“If anyone has encouraged you to illegally enter the United States, or make any false statements to U.S. government officials, they are giving you bad advice and they are placing you and your family at risk,” he said.“We are a very welcoming country but just like your own house, we expect everyone to enter through our front door and answer questions honestly. On a national level that front door is the Ports of Entry. If you enter the United States at any place other than a Port of Entry it is a crime.” last_img read more

Alphabets Loon recruits highpowered mobile veterans to serve on board

first_imgLoon’s parent company, Alphabet, is planning a commercial launch of the service for later this year.  Alphabet Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has recruited some well-known and experienced industry veterans to help get its wireless broadband project Loon to market.On Tuesday Alphabet announced a new advisory board and said one of the founding members will be Craig McCaw, who started McCaw Cellular. McCaw Cellular was one of the first cellular companies in the US and was sold to AT&T in 1994. Also serving on the new board: Marni Walden, a former marketing executive with Verizon, and Ian Small, who worked as chief data officer for Telefonica and is now CEO of Evernote. Project Loon, started in 2016, uses solar-powered balloons as Wi-Fi carriers to deliver signals from high above. In July, Alphabet spun out Loon from X, the division of Alphabet responsible for its most experimental projects, including self-driving cars, internet-connected contact lenses and delivery drones.The company said previously it was planning a commercial launch of Loon later this year. Thus far, the balloons have been used in testing, and deployed for emergency relief, as in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. In preparation for the commercial launch, Loon CEO Alistair Westgarth said in a blog post, the company intends to partner with mobile network operators throughout the world. The idea is that Loon can help these wireless carriers expand internet coverage and attract new customers. To do that, he said, Loon needs to add “some serious expertise to our ranks with a new advisory board that brings together top wireless innovators with decades of experience in the industry.”Loon has already struck at least one partnership deal, with Telekom Kenya, to help the African carrier extend its coverage to hard to reach parts of the country where reliable communications connections are absent. CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition.The Smartest Stuff: Innovators are thinking up new ways to make you, and the things around you, smarter.

UNHCR urges Myanmar Bangladesh to give Rohingya youth a future

first_imgFilippo GrandiUnited Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi on Monday called upon the international community to continue their support to Bangladesh over Rohingya refugees.He also urged the leadership of Bangladesh and Myanmar — prime minister Sheikh Hasina and state counsellor of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi — to give young Rakhine Muslims a future, reports UNB.”I spoke to people, especially young people (in Kutupalang camp). They didn’t tell me I want more food, more blankets and more medicines. They told me — give us a future. That’s the message to both leaders (Hasina and Suu Kyi),” Grandi told a press conference at a city hotel in the evening.The UNHCR chief emphasised on implementation of citizenship verification process ‘efficiently and rapidly’ which will help unblock all the remaining barriers to the solution.He said they have technical expertise in verifying citizenship, and they will further discuss with Myanmar government how they can support in this process.Earlier in the day, he visited refugee camp Kutupalang in Cox’s Bazar district.Responding to a question on relocation plan to an island, the UNHCR chief said this is just a plan and the focus needs to be given on voluntary relocation instead of imposing force.”We always advise governments to verify two things — wherever refugees are relocated there are opportunities,” he said adding that relocating from a bad place to another bad one does not fulfil the purpose.Secondly, the UNHCR chief said, this relocation needs to be voluntary as the refugees cannot be forced at all.On repatriation process, he laid emphasis on creating a conducive and peaceful environment in Rakhine State to make the return sustainable.He said the process will not be sustainable if the refugees do not feel to go back to their homeland.Talking about his meeting with prime minister Sheikh Hasina, he said he thanked the government and the people of Bangladesh for hosting Myanmar refugees here for decades.Grandi said Bangladesh has many challenges — from development, climate change and economic fronts and they along with other organisations will continue to support Bangladesh and the community who are hosting refugees living in very fragile area.He said he is very “impressed” for being able to meet both Hasina and Suu Kyi, and described them “strong and clear minded visionary women”.Recalling that both of their fathers were killed, the UNCHR chief said the two leaders are very committed to a very good future for their respective countries.”My message to them — give a future to these young people. One more responsibility we all have to give a future to the people I saw in Cox’s Bazar today and in Myanmar last week,” Grandi added.The UNHCR chief will leave Dhaka on Tuesday. He visited Myanmar and Thailand before coming to Bangladesh.Bangladesh on Saturday urged the UNHCR to ask the government of Myanmar to take ‘meaningful measures’ and ensure the return of all Myanmar nationals staying in Bangladesh to their homeland in Rakhine State.Bangladesh also expressed concern over ‘unilateral halt’ of the repatriation process by the government of Myanmar since 2005 even though 10,820 refugees had been cleared by both countries through a verification process.Foreign minister AH Mahmood Ali conveyed Bangladesh’s position to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi during his meeting.During the meeting, the foreign minister apprised the UN Refugee Agency Chief of the measures taken by the government of Bangladesh to provide humanitarian assistances to Myanmar refugees and the undocumented Myanmar nationals.He also informed the High Commissioner that as many as 236,599 Rakhine Muslims had been repatriated till 2005.The foreign minister thanked the UNHCR for providing valuable support throughout the process of repatriation of this huge number of Myanmar nationals.He stressed that the constant presence of a huge number of Myanmar nationals in Cox’s Bazar has created a number of adverse effects on the overall socio-economic, political, demographic, environmental, and humanitarian and security situation of Cox’s Bazar and adjacent districts.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees commended the government of Bangladesh for being benevolent to host a large number of Myanmar nationals for a long time as well as for providing the humanitarian assistances to them.He underscored that the root cause of the instability in Rakhine State lies in the expropriation of citizenship of the Rakhine Muslims.The foreign minister thanked the high commissioner for undertaking the visit to Bangladesh and assured him of all sorts of cooperation during his mission to Cox’s Bazar.At least 74,000 Rohingya Muslims, out of 92,000, who fled indiscriminate killings, rape, arson and violence by Myanmar security forces in Rakhine State, entered Bangladesh since 9 October, 2016.The number of refugees from Myanmar rose to 490,300 by the end of last year, up from 451,800 in the previous year, with Bangladesh hosting the largest number of 276,200, according to the report published by UNHCR ahead of the World Refugee Day.Out of the 276,200 refugees, 243,000 are in a refugee-like situation. The Bangladesh government, however, estimates the population to be between 300,000 and 500,000.Grandi, after concluding his visit to Myanmar, called for inclusive and sustainable solutions to protracted displacement and statelessness.last_img read more
