Experienced Holland attacker has words of advice for Man United’s Memphis Depay

first_imgMemphis Depay must show strength to cope with his “difficult situation” at Manchester United, according to Holland captain Arjen Robben.The £25million summer signing has failed to start a Barclays Premier League game since United’s 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on October 4 and this week hit back at questions over his attitude.Depay said he is “working hard” to win back the first-team place he has lost to youth-team product Jesse Lingard at Old Trafford.Holland head coach Danny Blind was quoted as saying that Depay was not a team player when he was originally left out of Friday’s friendly against Wales, but the 21-year-old winger was later reinstated to the Dutch squad for the Cardiff game.“Of course I will give him advice,” Bayern Munich star Robben said about Depay at the pre-match press conference.“We try to help each other as players and the team to make steps.“He is a talented player in a difficult situation.“I can give him advice but the player has to cope with it, show strength and the right mentality.“It is important in your development as a player. It is not always sunshine and you have difficult periods, especially when you are young.“He has a long way ahead and if he shows the right mentality, the talent is there.“If he keeps working hard I am sure he can succeed.”Holland failed to qualify for the European Championship for the first time in three decades when they finished fourth in their Euro 2016 group. They are providing Wales with their first test since Chris Coleman’s side qualified for the finals in France next summer.The two countries last met in Holland’s final fixture before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Louis van Gaal’s side winning 2-0 in Amsterdam.“It is funny how things work sometimes,” Robben said.“The situation is different, they are going to the Euros and we are not.“It is painful, but it is down to us. The only thing we can do is try and restart and rebuild.“It is not nice to say, but we have to start again and prepare for September 2016 and the World Cup qualifiers.“It is a long way off but we have to cope with that reality, get some good results out of the upcoming games.“These are the games we have to try and use to turn it around.”Robben revealed that he had defied Bayern to join up with the Holland squad in Cardiff.“Bayern would prefer me to stay at the club and stabilise my physical condition but I wanted to be here,” said the 31-year-old forward who missed two months of his club’s season with a thigh problem.“But this game matters to me and that’s why I am here.“We had a good conversation about it with the coach.“We are building something new, this is a new project.“It matters or I would not be here.” He must show strength to cope with his “difficult situation” at Old Trafford 1last_img read more

Alex Neil refuses to criticise Cameron Jerome for shocking miss

first_imgNorwich manager Alex Neil refused to criticise Cameron Jerome despite the striker’s shocking miss in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton.Jerome spurned a simple-looking chance to claim a vital three points for his side when he fired over Tim Howard’s crossbar from just four yards following a brilliant flick from Wes Hoolahan.“Strikers miss chances,” said Neil. “The most important thing is he is there to get chances.“I thought his workrate and application in the second half was excellent.”Norwich were second best for almost the entire first half as Romelu Lukaku scored for a seventh straight game to put Everton ahead.But the Canaries were much improved after the break and Hoolahan’s strike earned them a deserved point.“We lacked intensity in the first half with our use of the ball,” admitted Neil.“We needed to make sure we responded to that in the second half and we certainly did so that is a positive to take from it.”last_img read more

A house of cards

first_imgWith the phone companies challenging the tax in three separate lawsuits, this illicit revenue source could be cut off by next fall. That leaves Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Council needing to build a budget in the face of a possible enormous loss of revenue. So they have turned, as usual, to the political consultants and operatives, who are as much a part of City Hall as the politicians, to come up with a devious plan: They’ll play fast and loose with the law, while tricking voters into re-establishing the phone tax. First, there’s the legal deception. Even though City Hall has known about the likely demise of the phone tax for months, Villaraigosa hopes to declare its potential elimination an “emergency.” That’s because under Proposition 218, tax hikes must appear on the ballot during regular municipal elections. But “emergency” measures can appear on any ballot. That includes the February presidential primary, during which – Villaraigosa’s pollsters tell him – a slew of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama voters will be more likely to vote “yes.” Plus, if the measure is classified as an emergency, it only requires 50 percent voter approval, and not the usual two-thirds. Compounding the deception, Villaraigosa has opted to seek a 9 percent phone tax to replace the 10 percent one that’s on the verge of elimination. That way he can claim the measure is a “tax cut” because it reduces the rate from 10 percent to 9 percent. This is an outrageous distortion. If voters vote “yes,” they won’t be paying 1 percent less on their phone bills, they’ll be paying 9 percent more than if they voted “no” and let the tax die on its own. But with an expensive, special interest-funded campaign, Villaraigosa is confident he can confuse more than half of the voters into doing the wrong thing. He may be right – after all they’ve already polled likely voters and found them easy to deceive. The disguised utility tax Last week, the Department of Water and Power Board of Commissioners signed off on a series of rate increases over the next few years. Ostensibly, the purpose of these hikes is to pay for much-needed infrastructure upgrades. It’s true the DWP has allowed its infrastructure to become obsolete but it’s not the least bit true that it’s ratepayers’ responsibility to pay the bill for the upgrades. As the Daily News revealed, the city has quietly filed a pre-emptive lawsuit to block any public challenge to its usual process of transferring tens of millions of dollars from the Department of Water and Power to the city’s general fund. The money that’s transferred came from ratepayers and represents a profit made by overcharging the public for water and power. Turning it over to City Hall makes it arguably a tax or fee that must be approved by voters. So if the DWP has extra millions to kick into City Hall’s coffers, what business does it have raising water fees? None. Under state law, “fees” must be specifically connected to real costs associated with providing a service. That doesn’t include subsidizing inflated pay raises for City Hall’s bureaucrats. The DWP rate hikes are really just another attempt to raise taxes without getting the public’s approval. That is, they’re an other way to skirt the law and take your money. The bogus gang tax Seizing on rightful public concern about gang violence, city leaders have also come up with plans for another tax hike, a parcel tax, allegedly to fund anti-gang efforts in L.A. But there are some problems with this regressive levy, which would cost every property owner in the city – from a middle-class family struggling to cover its mortgage to the owner of a downtown skyscraper – the same $40 a month. Most notably, no one in City Hall has been able to specify what, exactly, the money would pay for. L.A. already blows nearly $100 million a year on mostly ineffective anti-gang programs, and until we make sense of how that money is spent – it’s currently being audited by Controller Laura Chick – there’s no way to know whether anti-gang efforts need more money at all, let alone how much, or for what purpose. Up until last week, City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who’s led the effort for the gang tax, said that the crisis is so great we don’t have time to wait for Chick’s audit. The city needs the cash to fight the gang scourge as soon as possible. That’s an odd position to take since City Hall has failed to take the gang problem seriously for decades. What’s even more curious is that Hahn now says she’ll hold off the parcel-tax vote until another election because she doesn’t want it to compete with the phone tax on the February ballot. Apparently the problem isn’t so serious after all. Besides, trying to defraud voters twice at the same time could be beyond the capabilities of even City Hall’s skilled politicos. A pattern and practice The list goes on and on. The City Council has approved two garbage-fee increases in the last two years. The DWP has raised its rates repeatedly. Even golf fees have gone up in City Hall’s relentless pursuit of cash. All the while, we are always told that City Hall needs the money for the best of reasons. “The mayor has a responsibility to protect the revenue that pays for critical services in the city,” Villaraigosa spokesman Matt Szabo says of the mayor’s lawsuit against the people. The city’s chief legislative analyst, Gerry Miller, says maintaining the illegal phone tax is crucial because losing it would “impact library hours, recreation hours. It would impact street paving. It would impact tree trimming.” See, they have no choice but to gouge L.A. residents in one fraudulent and/or illegal tax hike after another. Our “critical services” depend on it. City officials must lie to us and cheat us. It’s for our own good. Never, when justifying their quest for cash, do they mention the gigantic pay hikes to the highest-paid municipal workers and local politicians in the country. Never do they mention the subsidies and giveaways to the downtown developers, who have their taxes waived. Never do they mention the handouts to Hollywood, or City Hall’s sweetheart deals with well-connected contractors and developers. Meanwhile, the city continually fails in providing the most basic services. Police coverage in the San Fernando Valley is down, while gang violence soars. The Fire Department is such a wreck that it – like the LAPD – might soon fall under federal control. The DWP, for all its money, can’t even keep the lights on in a heat wave. The sidewalks go mostly unpaved, and the potholes still form faster than they’re filled. The house is collapsing That brings us to where we are now, with the system ready to collapse. Maintaining such bloat and cronyism isn’t easy. It requires a constant stream of money, one that’s about to dry up. And it will dry up unless city leaders can fool the public once again. If they can get away with their phony phone tax, their disguised utility tax and their bogus gang tax, they will have the cash to put off the day of reckoning for at least a few more years. The voters of Los Angeles must not let that happen. We cannot tolerate such dishonesty and financial recklessness. It’s time we demanded a city government that works for the people of L.A., and not against us. It’s time we demanded an honest accounting of how and where our money is spent. It’s time City Hall and city workers make the efficiencies that are a daily part of life for those of us who pay their bills. It’s time for the house of cards to fall, and for a good, honest leadership to rise in its place.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

City leaders’ giveaways are rapidly outpacing their ability to bring in new funds, creating a perilous financial imbalance. For the insiders – the unions, developers, contractors – this is a bona fide crisis. For the rest of us, it’s a great opportunity to remake the city into one that serves the people instead of serving itself.

And they did it in the face of a slowing economy, cooling real-estate market and the very likely possibility that courts will find they have been taking the public’s money illegally. Simply put, City Hall is desperate. And in that desperation, city leaders are more dangerous than ever, willing to plunge to new depths of deceit to preserve what is a failed government. In recent months, we have seen City Hall hatch one illegal and/or unethical tax-raising scheme after another. In the interest of clarity, let’s examine these schemes one at a time: The phony phone tax City Hall currently collects $270 million a year from a 10 percent tax on all Los Angeles cellular phones and land lines. The tax could be found illegal because of a court case based on the Proposition 218 requirement that two-thirds of voters approve new taxes. last_img read more

Job-specific housing: the new model?

first_imgA New York teacher’s salary starts at about $42,000, and at more than $2,000 a month, the average rent for even a studio apartment in the city eats up over half of it. In the Bronx, the borough north of Manhattan where construction on the complex is expect to start later this fall, rents between $800 to $900 are considered affordable. The buildings will add to the supply of similarly priced apartments. Rents in the two buildings will range from $806 a month for a studio to $1,412 for a three-bedroom apartment. The apartments will be open to teachers in public, private, parochial and charter schools, as well as administrators. To be eligible for a lottery for an apartment, applicants cannot earn more than 110 percent of the area median income, which is $70,900 for a family of four and $49,630 for an individual. “As a prototype of housing for people who are essential to the functioning of a city, it’s quite important,” said Richard Plunz, a Columbia University architecture professor and expert on housing in New York City. Across the nation, finding affordable housing is a challenge for teachers, firefighters, law enforcement officers and other working- and middle-class people who want to live in the communities they serve. In New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has offered housing bonuses of up to $14,600 to incoming teachers. In the tradition of unions taking care of their own, Weingarten, the union chief, approached the city’s Housing Development Corp. about a year ago. Under the deal they forged, the pension fund bought the $28 million worth of bonds from the corporation, which also provided $20 million in below-market rate loans for the project. The Atlantic Development Group is building it. The New York-based construction company, which specializes in affordable housing, got a 1 percent mortgage for the project financed with the sale of the bonds to the pension fund. The project “revisits how housing was provided in the city for the working population from the 1920s to the 1960s,” Plunz said. Plunz referred to such huge, union-backed housing complexes as Electchester in the borough of Queens, which was erected in 1949 for electrical workers by Local 3 of their union. The Amalgamated apartments in the Bronx, one of the oldest housing cooperatives in the United States with more than 4,000 apartments, were built by several garments workers’ unions starting in the 1920s. Of course, investing pension fund money in real estate is not new. The nation’s largest pension funds, CalSTRS and CalPERS in California, have real-estate investments worth billions, and are helping teachers buy or build properties for individuals and families. The city’s retirement system, with a $52 billion portfolio, also has tens of millions of dollars of real-estate investments. But none of those investments is profession-specific rental housing like the Bronx apartments. They will be only a drop in the bucket for the nation’s largest school system, whose teacher force of 80,000 serves a student body of 1.1million, but it is a start. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Verena Dobnik THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Elementary school teacher Ramona Roman has a master’s degree and earns $70,000 a year, but she’s barely making it in New York City. “I think I make a good salary, but it’s so hard living here – I can’t get a decent apartment with the money I make. You also need to eat. You need to feed your kids,” said the 52-year-old teacher, who supports two children and her mother. Over the years, teachers in Roman’s predicament have fled the city’s red-hot real estate market looking for affordable housing. They may soon have a new option – Roman plans to apply to live in a 234-unit housing project being developed specifically for educators. The project, backed with $28million from the New York City Teachers’ Retirement System, could become a model in other cities where soaring rents are forcing out essential workers like teachers, police and firefighters, observers say. In New York, about 4,000 teachers moved out of the city last year, says Randi Weingarten, president of the United Federation of Teachers, which represent more than 150,000 active and retired city public school educators. “What developer is willing to construct affordable housing?” she said. last_img read more

10 puppies stolen from pet store

first_imgA video tape of the burglary was erased. It was unclear if the burglar deliberately erased the tape, Ro said. A security guard was in the bathroom during the robbery, Ro said. There are no suspects and the investigation is ongoing, Gonzalez said. The first burglary occurred between 11:45 p.m. Nov. 6 and 3:30 a.m. Nov. 7 with 20-22 puppies worth approximately $30,000 stolen, Lt. Doug Fetteroll of the sheriff’s department’s Norwalk Station said. The stolen puppies in the first burglary included teacup Yorkshire terriers, Shih-Tzus, Chihuahuas, Maltese and Pekingese, Ro told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. LA MIRADA – Approximately 10 pedigree puppies worth a combined $15,000 were taken from a La Mirada pet store early today, the second time the store has been burglarized this month, authorities said. Sheriff’s deputies responding to an alarm at 1:38 a.m. at the Puppy Love pet store at 14766 Beach Blvd., near Rosecrans Avenue, found the front door smashed and puppies missing, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Liza Gonzalez. Security bars and the store’s lock were also smashed, said owner Paul Ro, who offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the thief’s arrest. “I’ve got to catch him — this evil guy,” said Ro, who has owned the store for one year. “I’ve lost 30 dogs in two weeks. Everything is a mess.” Left behind were a year-old Yorkshire terrier, a 7-month-old Maltese and a 3-month-old Pomeranian,plus Ro’s cocker spaniel, the Tribune reported. Because the thief steered clear of the older dogs, “I think this guy had knowledge of dogs,” Ro told the Tribune. Insurance covered the losses from the first burglary, Ro said, who said he is awaiting word whether today’s robbery will be covered. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EXCLUSIVE: DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN BEHIND INVESTMENT SCHEME JAILED FOR 18 MONTHS

first_imgTHE BALLYBOFEY businessman behind a get-rich-scheme which has left Donegal investors more than €20 million out of pocket has been jailed for 18 months.The High Court in Belfast this afternoon sent Francois de Dietrich to prison for 18 months today for failing to disclose his worldwide assets.Judge Deeney slammed the businessman and held him in contempt of an order to reveal his financial affairs in full. Although the Frenchman was not present for the hearing, Mr Justice Deeny issued a warrant for his immediate arrest.He said: “I’m satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that this was a deliberate contempt on the part of the first defendant (de Dietrich) who is seeking to evade his obligation to obey an order of the court and indeed his statutory obligation to respond to legitimate requests for information from the Financial Services Authority.“There are very large sums of money involved. The current freezing order of the court exceeds £20 million.”Dozens of people on both sides of the Irish border fear they may have lost millions of pounds in investments they made in liquidated stock through de Dietrich.Members of the business community, sporting figures and even travellers are thought to have been handed over money.Court proceedings launched by the FSA led to an injunction banning de Dietrich and his company ETIC Solutions from taking any more deposits.The regulatory body also obtained an initial order freezing £6.8m in assets linked to the businessman and later increased in £20.2m.But lawyers for the FSA argued that he had only revealed details of assets held in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Estonia.Mr Justice Deeny found that de Dietrich had acted unlawfully and failed to meet requirements for full disclosure of his assets.“He has taken deposits from persons in the United Kingdom, and quite clearly a neighbouring jurisdiction of the Republic of Ireland as well, when he had no licence to do so.Although he made no ruling on the issue of fraud, the judge stated: “The court has a reasonable apprehension that many people have been defrauded of large sums of money here.”He rejected complaints by the businessman about alleged leaks, adding that even if there had been any disclosures it would not justify his failure to provide the information requested.“He had full opportunity to provide details of his business. It does not seem to be it would have been difficult to do that,” Mr Justice Deeny said.“The claim on his behalf was that he had a bona fide business buying goods from insolvency practitioners on an international basis and then selling them on at a profit.”They held that an earlier injunction against de Dietrich was proper and should not be discharged.“It seems to me whatever about any single request, an overall picture emerges of somebody avoiding their obligations under the Financial Services Act and seeking to avoid compliance with an order of this court.”De Dietrich’s solicitor, Peter Madden, stressed that his client denied any fraudulent activity.He also argued: “If the FSA’s stated obligation is to protect consumers I don’t see how consumers could be protected if Mr de Dietrich is committed to prison.”Following the decision to have him jailed for contempt the lawyer confirmed plans to appeal the ruling.* MORE EXCLUSIVE REVELATIONS LATER THIS EVENINGEndsEXCLUSIVE: DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN BEHIND INVESTMENT SCHEME JAILED FOR 18 MONTHS was last modified: January 28th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘UNITED IRELAND WOULD BE MASSIVE ECONOMIC BOOST TO DONEGAL’

first_imgDONEGAL would reap huge economic benefits from a United Ireland, American experts said today.The economic research, launched in New York, says economic unification could possibly deliver a more sizeable boost in economic output and incomes in the North, with a predicted 4-7.5 per cent long-term improvement in GDP.The study, which involved a number of researchers led by Dr Kurt Hübner, director of the Institute for European Studies at the University of British Columbia, also highlighted that the Republic would see a more modest boost of between 0.7 to 1.2 per cent in GDP per capita. Sinn Féin Derry MLA Raymond McCartney  has welcomed the results of an independent study which shows that Irish Unity would be economically beneficial for both jurisdictions on the island.Raymond McCartney said: “The report, “Modeling Irish unification” produced by KLC – Consulting for Tomorrow, presents three unification scenarios, each with increasingly positive economic benefits for both North and South.“In every case, the authors concluded that political and economic unification would likely result in a boost in economic outcomes and incomes North and South.“The most aggressive unification scenario estimates a boost in all island GDP of €35.6 billion Euro over eight years. “In my view, this Report is an important contribution to the debate on Irish Unity and is in line with the view held by Sinn Féin that a united Ireland economy would deliver economic growth and prosperity across this Island.“While opponents often claim that we cannot afford to be united, the simple reality is that we can not afford partition. The human price of partition is too high to pay.“A united Ireland is achievable, affordable and deliverable. We would all be better off economically, socially and politically in a United Ireland.” ‘UNITED IRELAND WOULD BE MASSIVE ECONOMIC BOOST TO DONEGAL’ was last modified: November 19th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
