AlSheikh Adds to AntiMorocco 2026 World Cup Bid Comments

Rabat – The head of Saudi Arabia’s General Sports Authority Federation, Turki Al-Sheikh, has again commented on the 2026 World Cup bids, publicly emphasizing that Saudi Arabia’s interests come first.In an interview with CNN, the Saudi official said that though his country has not voiced its official stance on the bids, Saudi Arabia is looking out for its interests first.Commending the North American bid, Al-Sheikh said that the US “is our biggest and strongest ally,” adding that the 1994 World Cup in the US “was one of our favorites; the fans were numerous and the Saudi team had achieved good results.” Al-Sheikh made it clear during his interview with Beki Anderson that Saudi Arabia’s vote will likely go to its “strongest” ally.When Beki asked him directly if he was referring to supporting the North American bid, Al-Sheikh answered: “You are intelligent Beki. You can read between the lines.”pic.twitter.com/RDdfyMvObg— ???? ?? ????? (@Turki_alalshikh) May 3, 2018Al-Sheikh’s stance on the Moroccan bid has been clear from the get-go.  The Saudi official recently posted several tweets implying that his country would vote for the bid that will serve its interests first.From these messages, it is clear that Morocco’s neutrality in the Gulf crisis between the Saudi Arabia coalition and Qatar incensed the Saudi official.In one tweet, Al-Sheikh wrote that “Some people went astray. If you want our support, you should seek it in Riyadh. What you are doing is wasting your time. Now ask the pseudo-state to help you,” referring to Qatar.In another interview with Saudi-based sports news platform Arriyadiyah in March, Al-Sheikh said that friendship has been “very detrimental to the Saudis.” He added that what really matters now to him is that “the 2026 World Cup needs to be hosted  in the best conditions.”Saudi Arabia’s implied support of the US bid is likely tied to US President Donald Trump’s own recent tweets bullying nations for support just weeks before the vote scheduled to take place on June 13, in Moscow.In his tweet, Trump wrote that it “would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the US bid.”The effect of the tweet is already shifting opinions. On May 3, the South African Football Federation denied its previous support of the Moroccan bid, deleting an early statement in April that had promised Morocco its vote. read more

SMMT at Trade and Industry Select Committee today 9 March

Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) The industry has welcomed the introduction of tax breaks to support R&D investment in the UK. However, more assistance needs to be given to all SMEs in the automotive supply chain to protect up to 140,000 jobs and prevent further loss of these enterprises. Since 1996 SMMT Industry Forum has helped more than 450 vehicle and component manufacturers to improve performance. Shop-floor based, their training programmes encourage process improvement and waste reduction, cutting costs and improving bottom line performance. He added, ‘Our message is a positive one and we welcome the opportunity to present evidence to the Committee. But the partnership we have with government is one which needs to develop further. There is no room for complacency. Regulation, taxation and skills in the UK must allow companies to be competitive globally.’ Some of the most important factors affecting the sector include: Industry best practice Exports have been helped recently by a 15 per cent drop in sterling’s value. However, currency fluctuations continue to create uncertainty and, while the government dithers over any timetable for UK entry to the Euro, long-term investment decisions remain under threat. Chief executive Christopher Macgowan will highlight the strengths of an industry which generates annual turnover of £45 billion that supports 850,000 jobs. He will also promote the benefits of greater industry-government partnership to realise the sector’s long-term potential on the global stage. Investment SMMT representatives will today give evidence to the Trade and Industry Select Committee inquiry into the UK Automotive Industry in 2004. Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) are to be applauded for their efforts in attracting investment from overseas but more central co-ordination is needed. At present different UK regions can be involved in direct competition when the focus should be a national investment strategy. The Automotive Academy offers a joined-up approach to bridging the skills gap. With £15 million of government backing, the Academy has been tasked with developing a national approach to skills training from shop floor through to boardroom focussing on technical, leadership, management and support programmes. Approved courses, providers and assessors will be kite-marked. Regulation The industry believes that government should also be more active in promoting the benefits of investing in UK plc at home and overseas. This summer’s Sunday Times Motor Show Live, provides an ideal platform to demonstrate this commitment to all stakeholders. Mr Macgowan commented, ‘It is important that we don’t lose sight of two facts when focusing on the health of the motor industry. Firstly, the sector operates at an international level and we are a key global player. The UK boasts many of the most productive car and truck plants and a strong component manufacturing base. Secondly, there is a clear vision for the future: it is a prosperous future built on the foundations of skills, competitiveness and productivity. This will be realised, in part, through a stronger working relationship with government.’ Competitiveness and Productivity The industry must be given the opportunity to assess the impact of all new EU regulation at the earliest stage. The establishment of the Better Regulation Taskforce and government’s recently published Revised Regulatory Reform Action Plan are signs that the government is committed to what is a basic principle underpinning a positive business environment. The government should also avoid the temptation to ‘gold-plate’ when transposing EU Directives into UK law. A light touch with an approach that levels the playing field across Europe should always be the goal. This means no more onerous regulation – and costs – applied to UK manufacturers than those operating in mainland Europe. The motor industry suffers a skills shortage with many vacancies for qualified engineering and technician grade roles. Greater incentives for those pursuing science and engineering in higher education should be available and SMMT welcomes the recent launch of Employer Training Pilots. To demonstrate its commitment to customers SMMT members have created a New Car Code of Practice. In the form of a set of promises made by manufacturers to consumers, the new Code addresses OFT concerns about warranty terms and conditions. SMMT eagerly awaits the stamp of OFT approval.

Immunization Dont let the flu bug you

With flu season looming, Brock Health, Safety and Wellness (HSW) is encouraging faculty, staff and students to educate themselves on how to stay healthy.As colder temperatures roll in and humidity levels are reduced, an optimal environment is created for the influenza virus to flourish. The biggest step people can take to protect themselves and others is to get a free flu shot available locally.Last year, HSW partnered with Brock nursing students to develop an informative influenza video to increase awareness regarding immunizations and to provide helpful tips.The Brock community can also visit the Niagara Region Public Health website for useful information about how the flu shot works and where locally they are available.While the suggested resources are intended to educate and increase awareness, the decision to get the flu shot is ultimately an individual decision. Consultation with a health professional, a walk-in clinic or a pharmacist is recommended. Educate yourself, family and friends on how to stay healthy this flu season. Don’t let the flu sneak up on you. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse tops Michigan in Ann Arbor

Senior midfielder Christopher May (25) carries the ball during a game against Michigan on April 12 in Ann Arbor, Mich. OSU won, 13-8.Credit: Molly Tavoletti / Lantern reporterANN ARBOR, Mich. — A win is a win, but a win over a rival can have more significance.After a 13-8 victory in Ann Arbor on Sunday, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team remained undefeated against Michigan and improved to 3-0 in Big Ten play this season. But the victory over the Wolverines was more than just a check in the win column.“Coming into their place and seeing all these nasty colors out here, it means a lot to us to get this win on the road,” senior defenseman Evan Mulchrone said.OSU struck first when senior midfielder David Planning put the ball in the goal 57 seconds into the game, followed by a strike from junior attackman Carter Brown 16 seconds later. But Michigan was quick to answer the Buckeyes’ fast start as the Maize and Blue went up, 4-2, early in the second quarter.“The goalie was hot early,” OSU coach Nick Myers said. “We took 10 shots in the first quarter and only scored two goals.”Myers said he was confident the goals would eventually fall, though, and they did. The Buckeyes retook the lead near the end of the first half with five unanswered goals, going up 7-4 before the break.“They came out playing really well,” Mulchrone said. “We got back to playing our original game of sliding and making them earn their goals, stopping unassisted goal scoring.”The Buckeyes acknowledged the Wolverines’ talent and effort going into the game, but Planning said he knows a rivalry victory requires more than just physical strength.“At the end of the day, it’s about hustling,” he said. “It’s about how badly you want the win.”Sunday’s game marked OSU’s first victory over Michigan as part of the Big Ten conference, making a “special rivalry” even sweeter, Myers said.“It’s our culture versus theirs, and we did what we do,” he said. “The seniors now have completed their 4-0 streak, but now we can focus on next week and our fourth opportunity to get another conference win.”OSU is set to return to Columbus to take on Maryland in its final home game on Saturday. The Showdown at the ‘Shoe is set to take place at 11 a.m. prior to the football team’s annual Spring Game. read more

iPhone 5 4G Could fall release mean LTE

first_imgThere have been a lot of rumors floating around the web that the iPhone 5 release would be delayed until fall. Apple has had a pattern of releasing new iPhone hardware in the summer during its World Wide Developers Conference, but according to a release from Apple earlier this week, only new versions of Mac OS and iOS will be introduced this year (not that they’d spoil the iPhone 5 in the invite).So what’s up with the delay? Macotakara, a Mac blog in Japan, reports Apple hasn’t ordered components for the next-gen iPhone. Because of that, the iPhone 5 could be planned for Apple’s 2012 fiscal year, which starts on September 25. It’s likely that Apple could release the phone in October or November so the company doesn’t miss the big holiday season sales. From what we’ve seen around the web, a fall release is imminent. But, Apple has fooled us in the past, and the company has been known to quickly change its plans at times.The delay may be worth the wait, though. A fall release seems awfully suspicious and leads us to believe we may be seeing a 4G iPhone. LTE is being introduced to more and more phones, and many Android devices with LTE capabilities are expected this fall. So, autumn would be the perfect time to jump into the LTE game and not get left in the dust, which has never been Apple’s way of doing things.That being said, the company has been weary of quickly adopting new technologies in the past. Take the original iPhone for example. The first edition was launched with EDGE while other phones out at the time had 3G.Again, take all of this with a grain of salt because Apple keeps its secrets tightly locked up, and this is all just speculation. With that, Apple has said it will release a white iPhone this spring, so you’ll have that to hold you over until the iPhone 5 comes out.More at Mackotakaralast_img read more

Sharp combines gestures proximity and illuminance detection on a single sensor

first_imgThe next generation of smartphones is going to be all about the sensors that enable us to do cool new things without ever having to touch our handsets. And Sharp’s newest toy looks like a must have in this brave new world.Sharp has developed a new sensor designed to offer significantly improved gesture controls, lighting, and proximity detection using a single component, and it will be headed out to manufacturers later this month for them to start experimenting with.This hardware will enable manufacturers to offer greatly improved control over things like automatic brightness or screen disable when the phone is close to your head, but it will also allow for situations where the contents on the screen is directly affected by the proximity of your body to the sensor. You could, in theory, have text on a screen that got larger automatically as you brought the device closer to your face, or better control for face detection features like those seen in the Samsung Galaxy S4 right now.The sensor also unlocks access to a range of gestures for controlling your phone without ever needing to touch it. How advanced and involved such gestures become is down to the manufacturers choosing to use it, but it could make for some new and interesting smartphone control gesture sets next year.Demo sensor, showing the image grow and shrink with proximityIt’ll be about a year before we see the sensor in consumer products, but Sharp expects the demand for this technology will be significant over the next couple of months. This seems like the type of sensor manufacturers will be looking to add to their products over the next year, if for no other reason than to compete with Samsung, who has certainly pulled ahead of everyone else with their sensor-based features recently.last_img read more

Grandfather puts up unexpected fight

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A 71-year-old grandfather proved to be tougher than would-be robbers expected, putting up a fight to protect his Ashfield convenience store when it was attacked by men with machetes last Friday night.Theo Zagoridis was working in his shop on the main street in Ashfield, in Sydney’s inner-west, when two men entered the premises at approximately 8.40 pm and threatened him with their weapons.“They said ‘give me your money’. I thought it was a joke, I told them to bu***r off,” Mr Zagoridis said. A defiant Mr Zagoridis refused to give in to their demands, and accosted the man holding the machete to prevent him from wielding it, wrapping him in a ‘bear hug’.“I grabbed him so he couldn’t swing his arms and the other man, the look out, came behind me and pulled my arms and then they just took off,” he told Nine News.Two men, believed to be working with the pair who attacked Mr Zagoridis’ Sunny’s Grocery store, also entered a convenience store on Alt Street, just opposite the scene of the crime.last_img read more

Australias Takeovers Panel rules against lenders acquisition of 971 Donaco International stake

first_img Ainsworth launches review of product development after Asia-Pacific struggles see FY19 decline RelatedPosts Donaco reveals addition of two new board members as makeover continues Load More Donaco International Limited co-founder Joey Lim has succeeded in preventing the sale of a 9.71% stake in the company to Asian investment firm Orchard Capital Partners (OCP) after Australia’s Takeovers Panel made a declaration of unacceptable circumstances on Tuesday.The declaration related to OCP’s on-market acquisition of the 9.71% interest between 7 and 31 December 2018 at the same time as it was locked in negotiations with Total Alpha Investments Limited (Alpha), a company controlled by Lim, over a defaulted loan repayment. OCP, having been issued senior secured bonds in an aggregate principal amount of US$34.3 million by Alpha in May 2017 and also granted share options over Donaco shares, ultimately enforced its security interest over a 27.25% stake in the company in February 2019 – lifting its total holding in Donaco to almost 37% and prompting Lim to file an objection claiming breaches to Australian takeover laws.Agreeing with Lim’s assessment, the Takeovers Panel ruled this week that the circumstances of the on-market acquisition were unacceptable because the market was not aware OCP had a security interest in 27.25% of Donaco shares, was not aware Alpha was in default and that OCP’s actions before it acquired a substantial interest in Donaco had the effect of avoiding disclosure of the situation.The Panel has now made orders vesting the 9.71% shares in Donaco acquired by OCP between 7 and 31 December 2018.Lim, who established Donaco with his grandfather and Genting Group founder Lim Goh Tong in 2002, was terminated from his role as Managing Director and CEO in March following a lengthy leave of absence but remains on the Donaco board.

PM Hasina blasts US for issuing red alert

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganabhaban on Friday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday sharply criticised the USA for issuing an alert on Bangladesh without citing any reason or giving any explanation, reports UNB. “I saw the USA issued a red alert. They didn’t inform us why they issued the alert and gave no explanation either,” she said in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganobhaban. Sheikh Hasina said she has already asked the authorities concerned to look into the matter and find out why the US issued the alert or whether they have any information. “If they’ve any information about any incident that can happen in the coming days, then it’s their responsibility to inform us,” the prime minister said. “They could inform our intelligence agencies so that we could take steps.” Hasina said terrorism is a problem for the whole world. “Bangladesh contained terrorism and militancy successfully. After one incident we’re very much alert and our intelligence agencies are working round the clock. If they (the US) have any information, they should inform the appropriate authority,” she said. The prime minister said Bangladesh is in the top five growth attaining countries and it is natural that those who did not want the country’s independence will not want to see the country advancing smoothly socioeconomically. “They hatched conspiracies in the past, but we’re advancing and we’ll be advancing. Everyone has to work so that our march towards success continues,” she said. The US embassy on Wednesday issued a fresh alert for its citizens living in Bangladesh. “In light of calls for revenge in the wake of the 15 March terrorist attack against on mosques in New Zealand, we encourage US citizens to exercise heightened awareness of the ongoing threat posed by transnational terrorist organisations such as ISIS and al-Qa’ida,” it said in a statement.Terrorist groups, their associates, and those inspired by such organisations remain intent on attacking US and western citizens around the world, including in Bangladesh, it mentioned.It also requested its citizens to review their personal security plans as well to be aware of their surroundings.”Stay alert in locations frequented by Westerners and monitor local media for updates,” it added.last_img read more

Review Okami HD for PS3 is a great game as long as

first_imgReleasing an HD version of any game, even when porting the title to a similar console, can be complicated. The original fans of the game are going to want it, but any changes you make are likely to be met with hesitation. The whole idea is that you’re re-releasing the game so it is enjoyable on new consoles. With a unique title like Okami, you’re got the added bonus of knowing there’s a niche market ready to stuff dollar bills into the DVD slot on the PS3. While Okami HD looks like a recipe for a quick trip down memory lane, the game is only playable when muted.If you are unfamiliar with Okami, you should know that there’s a lot of text to read. The first 20 minutes of the game go deep into explaining the back story and end with an extended conversation between the characters. Unlike the original version, there’s no way to skip these scenes. During the sequences of endlessly flowing text, there’s a voice in the background. Like the original, the voice isn’t actually saying words. Instead, you get this multi-tonal babble that just sounds like chaos after a few lines of text. There is no way to escape this aside from muting your audio, and you have to hear it every single time anyone in the game speaks.As promised, Okami HD revisits the story of Amaterasu and her giant ink brush saving the world from a great evil. All of the assets for the game have been enhanced to look excellent on high definition televisions. The same unique animations from the original game, complete with backdrops reminiscent of traditional Japanese paintings and brightly colored scenery all look great.The combat sequences stutter a bit when trying to perform combo attacks that involve switching to the brush for attacks, often resulting in the brush moving slightly before touching the joystick. I never found it to be something that inhibited gameplay, but if you use the brush a lot in your attacks it is noticeable.The button placement for the PS3 controller is very much in line with the PS2 version of the game, so users who sunk countless hours into the game will have no problems picking the game back up. If you played Okami on the Wii, or if you’ve never played at all, there’s a pretty basic controller walk-through in the beginning of the game that does a good job explaining everything. If you are a Playstation Move user, the wand offers you direct control of the paintbrush on the screen. This is really nice for attacks that benefit from a quick flick of the wrist instead of a pause in gameplay to lineup the brush and draw with the joystick.If you are a fan of the original Okami, $20 is a small price to pay to see the game re-done with HD assets. It’s an artistic title with some really beautiful backdrops later in the game, and as an action title it can get challenging at points. It’s a shame that someone forgot to let you skip cut scenes or apply some actual voice-overs to the game. Or, just remove the fake talking altogether, since it adds absolutely nothing to the title.Okami HD is available in the Playstation Store now.last_img read more

Phones made by Huawei impacted by US blacklist

first_img Facebook Comments Featured photo by Designer2k2 via Wikimedia commons.  Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry. Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally. We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally. By some estimates, Huawei smartphones are themost popular brand in Costa Rica.But the hundreds of thousands of Costa Ricans who use phones created by Chinese company may be impacted by the United States’ ban on the tech giants.After the U.S. government blacklisted Huawei, saying the company poses a national security risk, the ramifications could be felt in Costa Rica and worldwide.Google, the U.S.-based creators of the Android operating system used by many Huawei devices, said it is “complying with the order and reviewing the implications” of the United States’ declaration and that existing phones will continue to function.“Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices,” a spokesperson said.But according to The Verge, Huawei phones running Google’s operating system won’t receive future Android OS updates. New Huawei smartphones would not have access to the Play Store or Play Services, which is necessary to run Google-made apps such as Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps.Huawei released a statement saying it will “continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.”If the U.S. blacklist isn’t removed, the Chinese tech giant may need to develop its own mobile operating system to replace Android, a move for which Huawei has reportedly prepared.Read Huawei’s full statement below: Related posts:Facebook topped $1.5 billion in quarterly profit at end of last year Internet by light promises to leave Wi-Fi eating dust US Sen.
