Five things we learned in European football this weekend

first_imgLiverpool, Bayern Munich clash in the next Champions League fixture. Share on: WhatsApp Paris, France | AFP | Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all extended their respective league leads in Spain, Italy and France, while Bayern Munich warmed up for their Champions League clash at Liverpool with a narrow win.As Kylian Mbappe continued his remarkable goalscoring form and Mauro Icardi watched Inter Milan from the stands, AFP Sport looks at some of the main talking points from the weekend in Europe:Inter ‘reborn’ without Icardi“I think something new has been born this evening,” said Inter coach Luciano Spalletti after his side got their first home win of 2019 with a 2-1 victory over his former club Sampdoria.Icardi watched from the stands after being stripped of the captain’s armband and replaced by goalkeeper Samir Handanovic amid speculation about this future.“It frustrating that we keep having to get tied up in all this talk around Inter,” said Spalletti as Icardi’s contract negotiations have been played out on social media by the player’s wife and agent Wanda Nara.“I’ve had some situations in my career with a lot of attention, but never like this,” added former Roma and Zenit Saint Petersburg coach Spalletti.Real resurgence haltedReal Madrid’s resurgence was dealt a reality check on Sunday as they were beaten at home by a Girona side that were winless in 13 games and without a league victory since November.They ended that run at the Santiago Bernabeu by coming from a goal behind, with Madrid throwing away their lead and perhaps any realistic chance of catching Barcelona in La Liga.The gap now stands at nine points between Spain’s most established pair, despite Madrid threatening a comeback in recent weeks with a home Clasico also to come at the end of the month.That game looks far less significant now, with Atletico again Barca’s closest challengers, seven points back in second.Mbappe steps up againWhen PSG headed to Old Trafford to face Manchester United last week, there were fears the injuries suffered by Neymar and Edinson Cavani would prove costly.center_img But Mbappe scored in an impressive 2-0 win, and he backed it up with a magnificent volley to grab a hard-fought victory at Saint-Etienne on Sunday, leading Les Verts coach Jean-Louis Gasset to say the 20-year-old will be “the best player in the world soon”.The French striker has now scored 19 goals in just 18 Ligue 1 appearances this term — only Lionel Messi has scored more times in one of Europe’s top five leagues with 22.“He (Mbappe) shows his quality every day in training, he has this hunger to score, score, score,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. “It’s his quality. He is a special player.”Pizarro continues to defy yearsDespite being four years older than his coach, Claudio Pizarro proved once again that age is no obstacle after becoming the Bundesliga’s oldest scorer on Saturday.Aged 40 years and 136 days, the Peruvian smacked in his 195th Bundesliga goal, equalising with the last kick of the game to steal a point in Werder Bremen’s 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin.The ex-Chelsea and Bayern Munich striker drove his 96th-minute free-kick low under the Hertha wall and the ball was deflected twice on its way into the net.Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt, 36, says it is a “privilege to be able to bring on someone like him” after introducing Pizarro with half an hour left.Mourinho open to working in FranceJose Mourinho said he could see himself working in France after attending Lille’s 0-0 draw with Montpellier to watch in-form Ivorian forward Nicolas Pepe.“I can imagine (coaching) in France one day,” Mourinho said. “I’m a man who’s worked in four different countries, who likes that, who likes to know other cultures.”The Portuguese coach has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United in December and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.last_img read more

While acknowledging the legal and moral obligations the Council has regarding the Irish language, Mr Seamus Neely, Chief Executive of Donegal County Council stated that Seachtain na Gaeilge provides a platform to enjoy the Irish language through the many events that will take place during Seachtain na Gaeilge in a relaxed and enjoyable way.

He hopes that the range of events will suit all ages!He said he was particularly delighted with the collaboration now happening between the Irish Officers of Donegal County Council and of Derry City Council and Strabane District Council in the promotion of the Irish language and culture in the three counties under our remit. Mr Neely concluded by appealing to the people of Donegal and the North West to come out to support the many events scheduled for Seachtain na Gaeilge, most of which are free of charge, and to celebrate this, our ancient language and culture with pride purpose. Cllr John Shéamuis Ó Fearraigh, Cathaoirleach on Donegal County Council’s Irish Language Committee, said: “If we want the Irish language to survive, we have to speak it. And we have to give every support to our children in using the language, and to older people, and to the new Irish who have come to live in our country. But if we are really serious about the language there is a real need for a complete cultural transformation in this country and a complete change of mindset too”. Niamh Nic Suibhne, a student in the LYIT and who is on placement in Rannóg na Gaeilge came to the podium and gave a comprehensive account of the benefits she has gained in her time in Rannóg na Gaeilge.  She spoke of the many projects she has been involved in, many of which she has had a central role in herself and she acknowledged, with appreciation, the value this placement has had in improving her confidence in the use of the Irish language.Seachtain na Gaeilge is an international Irish-language festival promoting the use of Irish language and culture, both at home and abroad, running over a fortnight in March every year. The festival has built up incredible momentum in recent years, becoming the largest celebration of our native language and culture held every year.

SEOLTAR SEACHTAIN NA GAEILGE 2019 i gCONTAE DHÚN NA NGALLCuireadh tús spleodrach le Seachtain na Gaeilge ar fud Dhún na nGall, nuair a seoladh imeachtaí na féile bliantúla in  Amharclann an Ghrianáin, Leitir Ceanainn inniu, ar an Aoine, 1 Márta ag 1.00 pm. Beidh an Fhéile Idirnáisiúnta, Seachtain na Gaeilge ar siúl ó 1 – 17 Márta 2019 agus tá clár fairsing imeachtaí Gaeilge beartaithe do Chontae Dhún na nGall agus do Cheantair an Iarthuaiscirt i mbliana.Sheol Cathaoirleach na Comhairle Contae, An Clr Séamus Ó Domhnaill Seachtain na Gaeilge go hoifigiúil.  Bhí Cathaoirleach Choiste na Gaeilge, John Shéamais Ó Fearraigh agus Príomh-Fheidhmeannach na Comhairle, Séamus Neely i láthair ag an ócáid chomh maith. Ba bhreá agus ba mhór líon na n-ionadaithe a bhí i láthair ó na seirbhisí éagsúla  i gComhairle Contae Dhún na nGall agus ó eagraíochtaí eile, ag leibhéal náisiúnta agus ag leibhéal áitiúil, lena dtacaíocht a léiriú do Sheachtain na Gaeilge, cuid mhaith acu a chuir le líon na n-imeachtaí do Sheachtain na Gaeilge.  Is féidir sonraí na n-imeachtaí a aimsiú i leabhrán ildaite atá foilsithe ag Comhairle Contae Dhún na nGall.Chuir Clann Mhic Ruairí as Rann na Feirste tús bríomhar leis an ócáid agus arís i ndiaidh na n-óráidí le ceol breá sultmhar.  Cheol grúpa páistí scoile, ó Scoil Náisiúnta Naomh Iosaf, Rath Maoláin traidhfil amhrán taitneamhach as Gaeilge a chuaigh go mor i bhfeidhm ar an lucht i láthair. Agus é ar na bonnaí, dúirt Cathaoirleach na Comhairle Contae, An Clr Séamus Ó Domhnaill go raibh lúcháir air mar chainteoir dúchais Seachtain na Gaeilge a sheoladh go hoifigiúil don bhliain 2019.  Labhair sé faoi chomh tábhachtach is atá sé an Ghaeilge a chaomhnú, a neartú agus a fhorbairt, ní amháin sa Ghaeltacht ach sna ceantair taobh amuigh di, agus go bhfuil gá leis an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn mar acmhainn chultúrtha agus turasóireachta. Is maith is eol don Chomhairle ‘na dualgais reachtúla agus morálta atá le comhlíonadh ó thaobh seirbhisí Gaeilge’ a dúirt Príomh-Fheidhmeannach na Comhairle, Séamus Neely ach is é a bharúil go ‘bheireann Seachtain na Gaeilge ardán eile dúinn lenár dteanga agus ár gcultúr a cheiliúradh ar bhonn atá sultmhar, taitneamhach agus pléisiúrtha’.  Mhol sé go mór obair na gcóistí áitiúla as an iarracht a dhéantar bliain i ndiaidh bliana le Seachtain Gaeilge fhiúntach a reáchtáil sa chontae. Thug sé buíochas faoi leith don tSeirbhís Leabharlainne agus do Rannóg na Gaeilge as an réamhullmhúcháin ar fad le Seachtain na Gaeilge a chur ar obair arís i mbliana. Tá súil aige go mbeidh imeacht ar siúl a shásóidh idir óg agus aosta! Bhí lúcháir faoi leith air faoin chomhoibriú atá ar bun anois idir Rannóg Gaeilge Chomhairle Contae Dhún na nGall agus Oifigigh Ghaeilge Chomhairle Chathair Doire agus Cheantar an tSratha Báin leis an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn sna trí chontae faoinár gcúram. Mar fhocal scoir, d’impigh sé ar mhuintir Dhún na nGall agus an Iarthuaiscirt an deis iontach seo a thapú agus freastal a dhéanamh ar a laghad, ar chuid de na himeachtaí fairsinge Gaeilge a bheas ar siúl le linn Sheachtain na Gaeilge, an chuid is mó acu saor in aisce, agus ár dteanga agus ár gcultúr ársa álainn a cheiliúradh le bród agus le mórtas. Labhair An Clr John Shéamais Ó Fearraigh, Cathaoirleach Choiste Gaeilge na Comhairle Contae ag an ócáid. “Má tá muid ag iarraidh an Ghaeilge a bheith beo caithfidh muid í a labhairt. Agus caithfidh muid oiread a thig linn a dhéanamh chun tacaíocht a thabhairt do pháistí, agus daoine níos sine, agus na hÉireannaigh úra as tíortha eile.  Ach má tá muid dáiríre faoin teanga a shábháil tá géarghá le hathrú mór cultúrtha sa tír seo agus athrú mór meoin”. Tháinig Niamh Nic Suibhne, mac léinn atá i mbun staidéir san Institiúid Teicneolaiocht i Leitir Ceanainn agus ag caitheamh seal i Rannóg na Gaeilge ar thaithí oibre chun tosaigh agus rinne sí cur síos cuimsitheach ar a taithí oibre go dtí seo.  Labhair sí faoi na beartais éagsula ina raibh ról aici féin iontu agus mhol sí go mór d’aon mhac léinn seal a chaitheamh i Rannóg na Gaeilge mas main leo feabhas a chur ar a gcuid Gaeilge. Is féile idirnáisiúnta Ghaeilge í Seachtain na Gaeilge a chuireann úsáid na Gaeilge agus an cultúr Gaelach chun cinn in Éirinn agus thar lear. Tá an fhéile tar éis neart fuinnimh a bhailiú le blianta beaga anuas, agus tá sí anois ar an cheiliúradh is mó dár dteanga agus dár  gcultúr dúchais. Tugann an fhéile deis d’achan duine sult a bhaint as an Ghaeilge, idir chainteoirí dúchais, fhoghlaimeoirí agus lucht an chúpla focal araon.Fá choinne tuilleadh eolais faoi na himeachtaí, ní gá ach teagmháil a dhéanamh le Róise nó le Seán ag 074 94275 nó seol ríomhphost chuig: [email protected] nó chuig [email protected] nó dul go www.snag.ie nó chuig suíomh idirlín na Comhairle Contae ar donegal.ie/ie, chun cuardach a dhéanamh d’imeachtaí i do cheantarsa.Seachtain na Gaeilge festival kicks off in Donegal was last modified: March 5th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)Tags:Seachtain na Gaeilgelast_img read more

Toyota SA ‘a global producer’

first_img5 March 2008Toyota South Africa will export over 140 000 vehicles from its Prospecton plant near Durban to over 40 global destinations this year, following a multi-billion rand upgrade that has turned the company from a local supplier to an international export base, as well as Africa’s biggest vehicle manufacturer.In a statement issued this week, Toyota SA says it started the upgrade programme together with its Japanese parent, the Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), in 2002 to increase the local plant’s production volume from 100 000 units per year. TMC owns 75% of Toyota SA.“This historic occasion aligns Toyota South Africa closely with a number of other Toyota global production facilities, each with annual manufacturing capacity of 200 000 to 250 000 vehicles,” Toyota SA CEO Johan van Zyl said at a function this week to mark the start of Corolla sedan exports from the Prospecton plant.He said that Toyota SA expected to export 147 000 Hilux and Corolla vehicles to more than 40 global destinations in 2008, accounting for close on 60% of South Africa’s estimated total vehicle exports, of over 250 000 units, for the year.The project is expected to create up to 4 000 new job opportunities, while close to half of the total investment has been spent on local suppliers with established black economic empowerment credentials.According to the company, the local value added across the Hilux and Corolla models is more than 60%, and together with components exports are expected to push the value of Toyota SA’s exports for the year to nearly R20-billion – close to 1% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP).“This high local content used makes both of these models compliant with the requirements of the European Free Trade Agreement with South Africa and thus eligible for importation into Europe free of duty,” Van Zyl said. “Toyota is the first South African vehicle manufacturer to achieve this.”Investment, skills developmentFollowing the five-year, R2.4-billion plant modernisation programme, Prospecton now features the latest in automotive manufacturing technologies. South Africa is just the third country to make use of a patented stamping technology, while the paint plant features technology that is being used outside of Japan for the first time.According to Van Zyl, the transition of his company to a global export base started with the export of around 10 000 Corolla sedans to Australia per year, followed by a decision by Toyota Motor Corporation to turn SA into a global manufacturing hub for the new Hilux, for sale in Europe and the rest of Africa.“The third phase came with the announcement by TMC that the new Corolla sedan would join the Hilux as a volume export model from South Africa to European and African destinations. Both models are produced in right- and left-hand drive variants,” he said.“This required a total transformation in the way we do business and in the way we build vehicles. Fundamental to this process was a multi-billion rand investment in new facilities and technologies that overshadowed anything that the local industry had seen before.”Van Zyl said the company’s transition into a global player had been accompanied by an investment of R300-millioin over the five years in training its workforce, which included sending 174 employees to Japan for training in the “Toyota Way”.In addition, he said, the programme had encouraged 12 new international suppliers to invest in South Africa. Eight of the companies are from Japan and four from Europe, with nine having invested in their own right and three others being joint ventures with local companies.“Toyota South Africa is now firmly established as the largest vehicle manufacturer on the African continent and as the largest vehicle exporter in South Africa,” Van Zyl said.SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

This is despite an increase in revenue from broadcast rights, which rose from €113.8 million (US$126.9 million) to €113.8 million (US$22.3 million).The decline can partly be attributed to revenues from sponsorship income, which fell from €44.7 million (US$49.6 million) to €38 million (US$42.3 million), player management, down from €42 million (US$46.6 million) to €25.5 million (US$28.4 million) , and competition revenue, which dropped from €35.3 million (US$39.3 million ) to €34.1 million (US$37.8 million).Milan also saw business costs increase, jumping 5.1 per cent to €373 million (US$415 million).Personnel costs rose more than €34 million (US$37.7 million) to €184.8 million (US$205.5 million), with depreciation and amortisation increasing from €86.4 million (US$96.1 million) to €89.1 million (US$99.1 million). last_img read more

Bank of Canada minimum wage job loss projection follows Conference Board prediction

first_imgThe Bank of Canada’s latest projection of how minimum wage increases in Alberta and Ontario will affect job losses comes as no surprise to the Conference Board of Canada’s director of provincial and territorial forecast service.“It’s in the same kind of range as what we expect,” Marie-Christine Bernard said after the bank’s latest report.The BOC’s “The Impacts of Minimum Wage Increases on the Canadian Economy” study stated while the net impact on labour income would be positive, there would be job losses.“The planned minimum wage increases would reduce national employment by about 60,000 jobs relative to otherwise by 2019,” the report said, while also looking at the effect on GDP.“Minimum wage increases would reduce the level of gross domestic product by roughly 0.1 per cent by early 2019 and boost CPI inflation by about 0.1 pp,” the report said.Bernard pointed out the board’s prediction was actually lower than the bank’s predicting a loss of around 50,000 jobs, with a vast majority coming in Ontario rather than Alberta.“We also have to consider where the minimum wage is compared to the median wage in the province,” she said. “In Ontario, it’s going to be substantially higher.“In Alberta not as much, because there’s less people earning minimum wage in Alberta.”Ontario raised its minimum wage to $14 per hour on Jan. 1 from $11.60 and plans to increase it to $15 in 2019, while Alberta is expected to raise its minimum wage to $15 later this year.Bernard said the losses would include both Canadians losing their current jobs, as well as planned positions that won’t go forward.“Maybe a business would’ve hired a worker and now they’re not,” she said.Both the bank and the board said the number of losses could be less than their projections, depending on how businesses react to the increases, for example by reducing the number of hours employees work.660 NEWS Business Editor Richard Southern said, however, he’s not convinced.“It’s not what we’ve seen in the past,” he said on Twitter. “Goldman Sachs analysis recently found that U.S states where the minimum wage went up had faster employment growth.”To read the full report, click here.last_img read more
