They are training – not 100 per cent but training.”We will have his qualities again and he is an incredible player. He is so important like Kevin is, so of course we have to find another solution if he is not available.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say AC Milan defender Calabria: I’ve never seen a striker like Higuainby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan defender Davide Calabria admits he appreciates working with Gonzalo Higuain.The striker is currently struggling for goals.But Calabria says, “I told my agent that I’d never seen a striker like Higuain. He’s very good and always done well wherever he’s played.“Is there a problem with him? No, there isn’t. He’s having a tough time, which can happen, but he’s our Cristiano Ronaldo, given us prestige and something more to the team in general terms.“He’s won a lot and he has so much experience. Maldini? He’s an idol. I’ve always said and thought that seeing him gives me something more, even in training.”
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says the decision to back the Keystone XL pipeline shouldn’t be seen as a subsidy and all new pipelines are needed to meet growing oil and gas production.“We are ourselves a shipper at the end of the day,” Notley said Thursday. “It’s not that, and again as I’ve said, we’ve got these three pipelines and we as a government are looking at the best way to work with each proponent to support them as effectively as we can.On Wednesday, TransCanada confirmed it had commercial support for the pipeline, securing 500,000 barrels a day from producers for 20 years.50,000 of those will come from the provincial government’s Crown corporation.In response, competitor Enbridge told the Globe and Mail that TransCanada had previously announced it had enough commercial support months ago, so a taxpayer subsidy isn’t necessary.Notley said they’ve been working closely with Enbridge – whose Line 3 pipeline began construction last summer – along with Kinder Morgan on the Trans Mountain pipeline.But the Keystone support is a change from the NDP’s previous position, as it said during the 2015 election to focus on other projects since it didn’t appear it would get approval at the time by the United States.When asked why she changed her mind, Notley said production is up and capacity is down.“We do have a market in the States and if we can put that product on pipeline as opposed to on rail, that means more returns for Albertans,” she said. “The projected oil and gas production are going to require Kinder, they’re going to require Line 3, they’re going to require Keystone.”As for the overall growth of the economy, Notley responded to Statistics Canada data that cited EI increases in November, specifically by a big jump of in Edmonton.“We know that employment lags behind to some degree business, GDP growth and those kinds of things,” she said. “That being said, what we have seen is the province has created about 70,000 jobs in the last year, we are at the highest employment rate that we have been at since 2014.“The indicators overall is that we are making progress on jobs, we’re about halfway there, we’ve got more to do.”
New Delhi: After the “Pradhan Mantri hisab do” campaign, Trinamool Congress unveiled “Jumla Meter” on Tuesday countering BJP’s vision document, released on Monday. Rajya Sabha MP and senior TMC leader Derek O’Brien, addressing a press conference here, pointed out 15 reasons for “how the Bharatiya Janata Party has failed to deliver on its 2014 election manifesto promises.”Countering the saffron party’s promise of strengthening labour-intensive manufacturing, the TMC asserted that unemployment rate of 6.1 per cent was highest in the last 45 years. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’On the state and centre relation for national development, the party alleged that “Federal structure is killed, where the ‘Special Category Status’ for Andhra Pradesh has been denied. In fact, inadequate funds are given for flood relief to non-BJP states like West Bengal and Kerala in the last five years.” O’brien also claimed that since the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana was launched, only 1.8 per cent sanctioned funds have been utilised. Even in the five years, the average agricultural growth has decreased to 2.9 per cent. The TMC leader further also said the investment in agriculture declined to 18.8 per cent in 2016-17 from 43.2 per cent in 1980-81. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KEmphasising on the 2014 poll promise on black money by the BJP, TMC’s ‘ Jumla Meter’ says that “Black Money Taskforce set up by the government made no significant progress in bringing the black money stashed abroad. People named in Panama Papers are not made public, and no significant action has been taken. Demonetisation actually helped in making black money white.” O’Brien asserted that TMC’s priority after coming to power would be to ensure Assembly elections in Kashmir and passing the Women’s Reservation Bill. He also claimed NDA would fall short of a majority and win a maximum of 180 seats. “Our polls say NDA will get 180 seats. Make no mistake BJP, after May 23 TMC will be among the top three parties in Lok Sabha elections and we will come to power along with other opposition parties.” In the 2014 general elections, TMC emerged as the third-largest party with 34 seats, after BJP, Congress and the AIADMK. A three-member TMC delegation would visit the Election Commission on Wednesday at 11.30 am and will hold a press conference outside the Election Commission. They will take up the issue of NOTA button position in the VVPAT panel and the transfer of four senior police officers.
