‘Rennes inspired by extraordinary Ben Arfa’

first_imgRennes attacking midfielder Romain del Castillo says he is inspired by summer signing Hatem Ben Arfa.Ben Arfa has endured something of a nomadic career thus far, playing for seven clubs, including the likes of Newcastle United, PSG and Marseille.Rennes signed the midfielder in the summer following his release from PSG, and Del Castillo believes he is an inspiration to all of his team-mates.”When you are an offensive player like me, you watch his videos,” he told Goal when asked about the 31-year-old.

What he does on the field is extraordinary and playing with him everyday is positive.”Rennes are currently sixth in Ligue 1 and will also play in the Europa League this season, facing Astana, Dynamo Kyiv and Jablonec, and the midfielder is confident of qualification.”We watched the draw all together during a dinner at the training center.”We don’t have big teams in our group, but this is good. If we meet the big teams in the final stages, it’s even better.”We have the opportunity to qualify the club for the final stages and we are happy.”Ben Arfa’s next opportunity to impress will come against OGC Nice this weekend.He spent the 2015-16 season with Nice, and claimed in the summer that he received an offer to return to the club, only to reject it.”I had a lot of requests, I wanted to take my time,” he explained.”The Europa League was one of the criteria, but the important thing was the setting and Stade Rennes has changed in size.”There was Nice too but it’s hard to go back with your ex.”last_img read more

England vs South Africa 2017: Eoin Morgan ton leads England to crushing win over South Africa

first_imgEngland captain Eoin Morgan’s century led his team to an impressive series opening 72-run victory against top-ranked South Africa in their opening one-day international at Headingley on Wednesday.England made 339 for six in their 50 overs and then bowled out the tourists for 267 with five overs to spare.With the Champions Trophy starting next week, tournament hosts England look in fine shape with bat and ball after a highly disciplined performance.”It was very pleasing, it has been a pretty good day at the office for us,” said Morgan.”I thought the partnerships we built, we gave ourselves the best opportunity to get a par score or more,” added Morgan, whose century was his 11th in ODIs.England’s spinning all-rounder Moeen Ali, who was given the man of the match award, struck a crucial unbeaten 77, including five sixes, in a match-winning 117 run partnership with Morgan.Ali also played a key role with the ball, picking up the wicket of South African skipper AB de Villiers just as the strokemaker was beginning to look dangerous on 45.The only concern for England was a knee injury for all-rounder Ben Stokes which hampered his ability with the ball.BRIGHT STARTThe Yorkshire venue of Headingley welcomed the world’s visiting number one ranked ODI team with bright sunshine before Morgan’s 107 from 93 balls put the spine in England’s total.Ali’s contribution was essential after the two strong-hitting middle order batsmen – Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler – had been dismissed for 25 and seven respectively.Alex Hales (61) and local favourite Joe Root (37) had laid the foundations with a 98-run second wicket partnership after opener Jason Roy was caught behind for one by Quinton de Kock, attempting to drive Wayne Parnell.advertisementSouth Africa made an excellent start in response, with Hashim Amla scoring 73 before he was trapped lbw by Mark Wood, departing at 145 for two.Faf du Plessis, who had batted beautifully for his 67 in a 112 run partnership with Amla, quickly followed after edging Liam Plunkett with keeper Jos Buttler safely pocketing.But, with England bowling a consistent and tight line and length, South Africa’s middle order was unable to respond, De Villiers running out of partners before going on the attack and being caught by Plunkett at deep mid-wicket off Ali.England seamer Chris Woakes did the bulk of the damage picking up 4-38.The three-match series continues at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Saturday and finishes at Lord’s on Monday.last_img read more

New Ross Freighters Reenactment

first_imgAs part of the 250th Anniversary of Chester Basin, spectators will have a chance to cheer on the New Ross Freighters as they re-enact a historic two-day oxen walk. Organized by Ross Farm Museum and the Chester Basin 250th Anniversary Society, eight teams of oxen will take turns hauling wagon-loads of freight along route 12, recreating the journey traditional oxen teams would have once made. The relay will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 14 at Ross Farm and end with the oxen teams arriving in Chester Basin on Sunday at 4 p.m. New Ross and Chester Basin have been interdependent communities for hundreds of years. The farms of New Ross produced items such as food, lumber and wool-crafted products for local use and export to coastal communities, while imported goods, such as stoves, books and farming tools, arrived at Chester Basin by sea. It was the New Ross Freighters who would carry materials between the two communities. On Sunday, the teams will leave Countway’s Cooperage at 3 p.m., to arrive in Chester Basin by 4 p.m. The teams will pull wagons through Chester Basin. The teams will proceed to Corn Hill and down into the main business area, where everyone can gather to watch the freighters arrive at the shore. One of the wagons will be unloaded onto the Tancook Whaler, part of the historic vessel collection of the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg. Stops are planned all along the route, but the best public viewing points will be at the start at Ross Farm Museum, 4568 Highway 12, New Ross, on Saturday and at Chester Basin on Sunday afternoon.last_img read more

BC outreach group partners with app developer to improve safety of sex

first_imgVANCOUVER – An outreach group supporting vulnerable women in British Columbia is hoping a cellphone app designed to monitor remote workers in resource industries will help keep sex workers safe.Hope Outreach, a non-profit group that provides support to homeless and exploited women in Kelowna, is partnering with the makers of YodelMe to launch a pilot project to make the monitoring app available to sex workers and other vulnerable women in the Okanagan.“What I can see it do is saving some lives, and that’s what I’m all about,” said Angie Lohr, president and co-founder of Hope Outreach.YodelMe uses Wi-Fi, cellular and satellite technology to monitor a user by having them check in and out at set time periods. If a user doesn’t check in when they’re supposed to, a reminder is sent. If it’s ignored, the app sends a distress message to pre-programmed contacts with the user’s location.Greg ter Wolbeek, business manager for YodelMe, said he and founder Aaron Kilback contacted the outreach group after reading about it in a local newspaper.“It just struck me that hang on, this is developed for lone workers, essentially they are lone workers, so perhaps we can help them,” he said.Lohr said she and the women Hope Outreach works with were excited by the offer to help find a solution to the violence they experience.“This stuff happens every day and so I guess where I get a little annoyed is we wait for some tragedy to happen to focus any light on it,” she said. “We never really focus on who is picking these women up, why are they out there and what are we going to do to make them safe.”Details of the pilot project are still in discussion, but Lohr said she hopes to gather groups of 10 women from Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton to begin trying out the app in December. The pilot project is also looking at establishing a neighbourhood watch-type group among sex workers for an added level of security, ter Wolbeek said.“The idea is to create a Yodel community so people can communicate with one another so if you have an emergency that you’re in, you can see who in your Yodel community is nearby to help you,” said ter Wolbeek. “A nice way to look at it is this app is linking our virtual communities with a real life community.”Cecilia Benoit, a University of Victoria sociology professor researching sex work in Canada, said the app has potential to give women added security, but the challenge is users need someone they trust in their lives or have trust in the police to be on the receiving end of emergency messages.“The most vulnerable will be the least likely to have a trustworthy person,” she said.A more meaningful approach in the longer term would for Hope Outreach or other organizations to use the introduction of the app to connect users with resources, such as housing and employment programs, Benoit said.“It’s a practical tool that can be helpful but I don’t think it changes the situation. They still need the money, they are still going into these situations,” she said. “When they find a safe home, when they find a support system … they can start building more safety in their lives.”Lohr said the business of sex work is never going to go away as long as there is a demand and there are vulnerable women with no other alternative.Until there are more economic opportunities, housing, treatment for addictions and solutions for the other challenges women experience, Lohr said the app may at least help with their safety.— Follow @Givetash on Twitter.last_img read more

Man accused in Toronto gay village death had charge upgraded after new

first_imgTORONTO – A man accused of killing a young woman in Toronto’s gay village had his charge upgraded to first-degree murder after police found new evidence in the case, an investigator said Thursday after the 21-year-old appeared in court.Kalen Schlatter is charged in the November 2017 murder of 22-year-old Tess Richey who, according to police, died of “neck compression.”Schlatter was initially charged with second-degree murder last month but the charge was elevated to first-degree murder Wednesday.“I’m not going to get into what the new evidence is (but) I’m going to tell you that new evidence presented itself to us,” Det. Ted Lioumanis told reporters following a brief court appearance at which Schlatter’s case was put over until April 23 “I want to acknowledge the community for that. I want to thank them for that for coming forward.”There are a handful of conditions under Canada’s Criminal Code that can result in a charge of first-degree murder. “Planned and deliberate” homicides and killings that occur while committing or attempting a sexual assault or kidnapping are among the crimes that qualify.Police believe Schlatter and Richey did not know each other before the night of her death, Lioumanis said outside court, adding that Schlatter has not yet provided investigators with a statement.Richey was reported missing Nov. 25 after a night out with a friend in Toronto’s Church and Wellesley neighbourhood.Her mother, who travelled from the family home in North Bay, Ont., to search for her daughter, found Richey’s body four days later in a stairwell at the back of an alley, just steps from where she was last seen alive.Richey met Schlatter on the street after she and her friend left a bar, police have said. Surveillance video shows Schlatter and Richey together near the alley where her body was found.Richey’s family, some of whom attended Thursday’s court appearance, are in a “horrible situation,” Lioumanis said.“Are they happy for the new charge? Absolutely,” he said. “But considering what they’ve gone through and what they are going through, will they ever come to grips on what happened?”Schlatter appeared in court by video, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, his hair neatly combed and his beard trimmed close. He spoke only to say “good morning” and provide his name at the start of proceedings.Crown attorney Jennifer Stanton told the court her office would have more evidence to provide to the defence before Schlatter’s next court appearance.Police faced public criticism for their failure to find Richey in the days after her disappearance.Her death, along with several other disappearances connected to the gay village, led community members to say police were not protecting them.Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders announced in December that the force would review its handling of missing persons cases.In a case unrelated to Richey’s, self-employed landscaper Bruce McArthur, 66, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the deaths and disappearances of six men, most of them with ties to the gay village.last_img read more

Caribou Marketing Board Regulating wild food suggested to ease Arctic hunger

first_imgBob Weber, The Canadian Press Northerners could get relief from sky-high grocery bills if Ottawa were to help regulate and encourage the sale of food harvested from the land, a federal advisory board has concluded.In a report released Monday, the National Indigenous Economic Development Board recommends changes to how so-called country food is exchanged. They include regulations on buying and selling to safety standards and even marketing boards to explore potential sales outside the North.“There appears to be support for establishing a regulatory framework to guide and regulate the selling and marketing of traditional food,” said board member Hilda Broomfield Letemplier.“We want to look at providing a statutory foundation for all matters affecting the gathering, sharing and selling of country food in the North.”High food prices have long been an issue across the Arctic and in the northern reaches of most provinces. A chicken can cost $20; the tab for four litres of juice can be nearly $27.A study in 2010 found that almost half of Nunavut children between the ages of three and five lived in homes where they either had no food for an entire day or where their parents couldn’t afford to feed them at least part of the time. Two-thirds of parents said there were times when food ran out and there was no money for more.In 2012, Statistics Canada found that 22 per cent of Inuit reported going hungry during the previous year because they couldn’t afford food.Fresh, healthy food from the land could go a long way to alleviating that — if proper policies were brought in, Monday’s report says.Caribou and char are often bought and sold informally through social media. The report suggests that if those sales were regulated, institutions such as hospitals and schools could use the food.It recommends a Wild Food Inspection Act to ensure safety and suggests marketing boards could oversee sales and inspection, co-managed by local Indigenous governments.It points out Nunavut has already made moves in that direction that could serve as a model.Ultimately, proper regulations could lead to outside markets, said Broomfield Letemplier.“This certification would establish a national approach to branding and marketing sustainable Inuit, First Nations and Metis wildlife products for domestic and international trade.”Regulations would have to be accompanied by facilities such as processing plants, the report says. Hunters would also have to be supported to reduce the cost of equipment and supplies.The report also suggests that the cost of some staple items could be capped in grocery stores.Some northern leaders have already expressed concern over whether Arctic caribou herds could sustain a commercial hunt. Broomfield Letemplier acknowledged that healthy wildlife populations would have to come first.“We wouldn’t want to do that until we knew the herds were healthy.”The board’s report comes after recent reforms to Nutrition North, a federal program intended to reduce the cost of shipping food to the North. Although those reforms, announced in December, increased shipping subsidies and hunter supports, it didn’t change how the program worked.Broomfield Letemplier said that quite apart from its effects on health, food insecurity is damaging the economic development of Canada’s Arctic.“Northern sustainable food systems are a critical part of economic development in the North. With a healthier workforce, the economic climate is more favourable to attract and retain businesses.”The board’s report is to go to the federal government for consideration.  — Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960last_img read more

Winnipeg First Nations man says police took him on starlight tour

first_imgBy Tiar WilsonAPTN National NewsWINNIPEG–A 20 year-old First Nations man says he was taken on a starlight tour by Winnipeg police who dumped him on the outskirts of the city and told him to run or else he would be Tasered.Evan Maud said he was walking home from visiting his brother at 4 a.m. this past Friday when an unmarked black police car pulled up beside him.Maud said there were two officers in the car, one with a bullet proof vest and the other wearing a police jacket.Maud, who is in the midst of finishing Grade 12, said the officers accused him of being involved in break and enters and car theft, before taking him on a trip to the city’s edge.Maud, who claimed to only have had a couple drinks that night, said the officers drove him to the outskirt of the city where they took his jacket and sweater and gave him another sweater before telling him to run or he would be Tasered.“I didn’t know what to think. I didn’t know what to do,” said Maud.He said the experience left him so shaken he would now never walk alone at night.“I just don’t want this to happen to anyone else,” he said. “You got to walk with at least two or three people.”The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs said they planned to hold an emergency meeting with Maud’s family to discuss the incident.A recent study found that Winnipeg police had dumped at least 76 people on roads and highways outside the city on starlight tours.The University of Winnipeg study found that police targeted young Aboriginal men.Starlight tours, where police take individuals to the outskirts of the city to sober up, can have deadly consequences.In 1990, Neil Stonechild was found frozen to death outside Saskatoon after he was taken on a starlight tour.Two police officers were eventually convicted of unlawful confinement and sentenced to eight months in jail.twilson@aptn.caEDITOR’S NOTE: Evan Maud’s allegations have been proven false and he has publicly apologized to the Winnipeg police service.last_img read more

Juan Nieves Changes Sox Now Pitching Coach In Boston

Juan Nieves, a former bullpen coach with the Chicago White Sox, was hired as the Boston Red Sox‘ officially introduced Juan Nieves as the club’s next pitching coach.New Sox manager John Farrell said hie long-standing relationship with Nieves was important in Nieves landing the job after five seasons with the White Sox.“His ability, his communication and my understanding of Juan and what’s important to him as a person, as much as a pitching coach, those were all factored into the ease of communication, which is going to be a major component once we get into in-game input that he’ll have in the dugout,” Farrell said. “I feel with our rapport and existing knowledge of the guys on the pitching staff already, this is a very good fit and a very good tandem.”It was believed that longtime pitching coach Rick Peterson was the favorite for the job — a baseball source last week told ESPNBoston.com that Farrell was “all in” on Peterson. Farrell said he was impressed with all four candidates who interviewed (Marlins pitching coach Randy St. Claire and Royals bullpen coach Steve Foster were the others) but Nieves got the job for a number of reasons.Farrell expressed the importance of communication between the manager, the pitching coach and the entire pitching staff, and his confidence in Nieves’ ability in that area.“The ease of our working relationship will really foster that,” Farrell said.Another aspect to the decision to hire Nieves was his longstanding working relationship with White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper.“He’s learned under a longtime pitching coach that has had a lot of success in his own right in Don Cooper and this is a very good fit for the Red Sox,” Farrell said.Nieves agreed.“It’s an easy fit first of all because I’m only changing Sox,” he said. “It was a great fit knowing John from a long time in Puerto Rico and we actually played on the same team. We were able to talk a lot through the years.”Nieves has spent a total of 15 years working with Cooper and plans on bringing a lot of those philosophies to Boston.“Establishing a structure for the guys and stay on that course,” Nieves said. “To create some stability for the guys is very important. read more
