Bonucci clarifies controversial statement on Moise Kean’s episode with racism

first_imgAdvertisement p18NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs120ltWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E8wuxk( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) ckaiWould you ever consider trying this?😱puCan your students do this? 🌚c0pRoller skating! Powered by Firework In the wake of Moise Kean receiving racist chants and gestures in Juventus’ away trip to Cagliari , team captain Leonardo Bonucci spoke after the game that the blame was “50-50” between Cagliari fans and Kean. The soccer world united in calling the Italian defender out for not condemning racism but instead imposing blame on the victim of a severe racism episode.Advertisement Bonucci took to Instagram to clarify himself but its a hard-sell.Advertisement The English translation of the post reads : After 24 hours I want to clarify my feelings. Yesterday I was interviewed right at the end of the game, and my words have been clearly misunderstood, probably because I was too hasty in the way I expressed my thoughts. Hours and years wouldn’t be enough to talk about this topic. I firmly condemn all forms of racism and discrimination. The abuses are not acceptable at all and this must not be misunderstood.While team captains like Harry Kane who openly say that they are ready to walk their teams out of the pitch under such circumstances, people like Bonucci do not make a lot of sense.The veteran defender might have been in an haste but if denying racism was natural to a person then haste certainly wouldn’t have been an issue.

Mayo footballers bid to end losing streak against Galway

first_imgThe extraordinary ebb and flow of provincial superiority between old rivals Galway and Mayo goes back well over a century. In terms of Connacht championship titles, Galway have regained the edge on the roll of honour table 47-46 after beating Mayo for the last 3 years. The first of those wins (2016) stoppped Mayo in their efforts at an historic 6 in a row of Connacht titles. Perhaps Galway manager Kevin Walsh had the Indian sign over then Mayo manager Stephen Rochford, winning all 5 of their head to head meetings, but you could probably say the same thing about James Horan when he was first in charge of Mayo from 2010 to 2014. Horan has never lost to Galway as manager in 3 championship and 1 national league meeting, but that record will be on the line in Tuam Stadium next Sunday (1.30pm) when the sides clash in the semi final of the FBD League. After beating Mayo in both the national league and championship in 2008, Galway would have to wait 8 years for their next win over the ‘old enemy’ and when it arrived in surprising fashion in the 2016 Connacht semi final, it sparked a complete turn in fortunes with the Tribesmen now having won the last 5 meetings. Can James Horan resume where he left off with his 100% record intact, or will Kevin Walsh make it six wins on the bounce against Mayo? Something has to give next Sunday. Is it not time we had a draw? I wonder have Galway been practising their penalties since last weekend….

That last happened in 2010, when a flurry of late points helped Mayo to a 0-12 to 0-9 victory and the sides would not meet again until last year when the 5 Connacht counties played each other in a new round robin format and Galway were to edge out Mayo by a point, despite finishing the game with only 12 players.last_img read more

first_imgOn Friday, the state of Indiana turns 199 years old and Washington County will be helping celebrate with activities on the Courthouse lawn beginning at 1p.The anniversary marks the day President James Madison signed an act admitting Indiana as the 19th state of the Union.This Bicentennial Flag will be flown at the Washington County Courthouse over the next year. This year, the date also marks the beginning of Indiana’s bicentennial festivities.Washington County Auditor Randall Bills is helping keep the local committee going after the death of John Fultz. “John was involved in a little bit of everything and he was spearheading this. He was in poor health but still had a passion for doing this,” said Bills, who has been working with a local committee to organize the event on Friday that will include the reading of a proclamation acknowledging Dec. 11 as Indiana Statehood Day and the official kickoff of the bicentennial.The flag of the bicentennial celebrations will be flown outside the courthouse throughout 2016.Indiana will have its own Statehood Day Celebration at noon Friday at theIndiana Statehouse.Aside from flags and proclamations, Washington County is planning its part in the statewide celebrations, sharing the history of its cities and towns, lauding local community events and participating in a 92-county torch relay.Of the programs planned by the state, the Bicentennial Legacy Events will do the most to help Washington County boost awareness of the activities and events that will take place here,Bills said.Events such as Goshen First Fridays, the Wakarusa Maple Syrup Festival and theElkhart County 4-H Fair will be promoted throughout the state, which Coyne said will highlight the county’s tourism offerings.The 92-county Torch Relay will start Sept. 9, and torchbearers will make their way through the state up until Oct. 14.

Taking financial risk could reap development rewards for C-K

first_imgIf Chatham-Kent wants to see the pace of industrial and residential development increase, it will likely require taking some financial risks to incentivize growth.Senior staff served notice to municipal council that it’s developing plans that will require local politicians to decide whether they wants to make upfront investments in infrastructure such as roads, sewer and water – to be recouped later – to entice investments by developers.John Norton, general manager of community development, said he has asked several investors what it will take for them to come to Chatham-Kent.“They said two things – one, is we’re looking for financial incentives to come to your community to build something and, secondly, how easy or difficult is it to work with your municipal approval process?”Stuart McFadden, director of economic development, provided details on real scenarios regarding potential investments Chatham-Kent had been in the running for, but ended up losing out on.He said Chatham-Kent was short-listed by the province for a company looking for about 80 hectares (200 acres) to build a $450-million manufacturing facility that would have brought 400 jobs.“We did not have the industrial land that was fully serviced, and it was not zoned properly,” McFadden said.He said another scenario involved a potential $90-million investment in 40 hectares (100 acres) to create 180 jobs, but that company needed 25 megawatts of power that was “uninterruptible.”That is currently not available in Chatham-Kent, McFadden added.McFadden also noted a light manufacturing operation in Essex County was looking for about 7,000 square metres (75,000 square feet) of space in Chatham-Kent.A building to meet that need wasn’t available locally, so the company moved elsewhere, he added.“There’s growth to be had out there,” Mayor Darrin Canniff said. “It’s just what are we going to do to harness all that as a council?”There is currently 11 hectares (27 acres) left in the Bloomfield Business Park, but there still needs to be a road built and services provided to bring it online.Norton said during this term, council will likely have to decide whether it wants to begin the process to create another industrial park.“We don’t want to be in a position in five or 10 years in which we’re telling investors that we have no more lands in our business park. You need to go to the private sector to buy industrial park land,” he said.He added owning a business park gives council the option to do things the private sector doesn’t do.“Sometimes we discount the price or give other incentives because they’re coming to our community and they’re bringing jobs here.”Norton said he is a believer in business parks, noting nearby London is seeing this type of investment pay off with large businesses coming in.He added council can also look at investing upfront on infrastructure for private industrial lands if the owners agree to return the money within a certain period of time.Finding enough housing, as well as affordable housing, also continues to be an issue in Chatham-Kent.Norton said, currently,  the developer is expected to front those costs when new homes are built.He said municipal officials are hearing from some housing developers who can’t afford to move quickly but, if the municipality built a main arterial road for the area and put in the sewers, would be willing to build housing quicker.“We would do that and would cover those upfront costs through development charges or agreements with individual builders,” Norton said.While many houses in the $400,000 price range are being built in Chatham-Kent, Norton talked about incentivizing development of more affordable housing.“Maybe if we’re going to impose new development charges on higher-end homes, we could discount them and provide other incentives for those builders that are willing to build some houses at the lower price at the retail end,” he said.Norton said council can expect to be hearing about the issue in the coming weeks and months, and receive recommendations on actions that can be taken to try to incentivize growth in [email protected] @Chathamewslast_img read more
