Powered by Firework They might be the two current clubs in English football trying to establish themselves as the dominant force in the country but Liverpool and Manchester City are in a great form, performing of the very highest of order every week. Both the players and the managers are paying their respects to the opponents, but there certainly is a rivalry within the staffs and board members of the clubs.Advertisement The British outlet The Times report that Liverpool had to hand over £1million to Manchester City in 2013 as they were accused of ‘spying’. The report claims that several Liverpool employees, who were formerly of Manchester City’s, accessed the latter’s online scouting network without permission. It is also believed that the current transfer guru of Liverpool Michael Edwards, was amongst those involved.Advertisement Manchester City declared a breach in their online system after they brought an outside expert, and the IP addresses linked to that of Liverpool Football Club. City even worked on their contracts with Fernandinho and Jesus Navas as a result, fearing that they may be poached by the Merseyside team.The fine of £1million was paid in September of 2013, although Liverpool still deny of wrongdoing.Advertisement City first became aware about the deal when Liverpool expressed their interest in Paolo Fernandes, a youth player from Real Zaragoza. This report is sure to add to the animosity between supporters of the clubs.  Advertisementlast_img read more

Constable stabbed, man shot during scuffle at City Hall

first_imgA civilian and a member of the City Constabulary were injured on Friday morning during a scuffle in the compound of the Mayor and City Council.Information reaching Guyana Times revealed that Constable Rawle Bobb was stabbed to the mouth by the civilian and in retaliation, the Constable whipped out his service weapon and shot the man to his foot. Reports are the incident occurred at about 09:30h after the civilian, who was sentenced to do community work at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts returned to the outpost to enquire about his pedal cycle that was left there.This enquiry, Guyana Times understands, led to a heated argument between the two men which quickly escalated into an altercation. As a result, a door at the outpost broke off and it was this that angered the Constable further. The civilian reportedly armed himself with an improvised “jucker” and stabbed the city Constable to his mouth and in return, the Constable shot the suspect to his foot. They were both taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where they were admitted.When contacted, Chief Constable Andrew Foo indicated that the matter is being investigated. He said from what was reported, he is of the understanding that the civilian entered the City Constabulary to “claim a cycle”. “He was being spoken to by one of the ranks. He became disorderly. He attacked the rank and stabbed him to the face and mouth,” Foo said.last_img read more

I went to Cape Town during March

first_imgI arrived there on Saturday at about 11, went to the hotel.At the hotel when I was at reception, there was an Indian man who was talking about how he’s in Cape Town for 2 days because the ship he came on (he’s in the Navy from India) and how all he really wants to see are penguins and other animals – he’s never been on African Soil before.Prize-winner! This was our first prize-winning story. Congratulations, Welma!He wants to do something really exciting like go to a game reserve, bungee jump off Table Mountain, just anything really amazing. So there I was just standing there listening to him speak and thinking what on earth have I done that is absolutely exciting in Cape Town.I am a Jo’burg girl – had been to Cape Town twice before (first when I was 10 – school trip, then again when I was about 20/21 – for work). I don’t remember much about Cape Town. I had plans to just go to the Waterfront and shop (okay buy one expensive thing then call everyone I know to tell them how expensive everything in Cape Town is).So there we areSo there we are standing at Reception (me waiting to check in, and him hoping to find something exciting to do). Then the receptionist suggests that for only R390 he can go on a half-day tour of the city. So I had to jump in, because at that moment I realised how boring my trip would be if all I did was visit shops that exist in Jozi. (I can always buy in Joburg).So okay – I have cash on hand, I’m going on a tour bus. I’m completely South African (I’ve never even been out of the country, nor do I own a passport), and I really don’t know my country and in any case it just sounds exciting.I’ve just made a new friendI’ve just made a new friend (the Indian guy) and at 13:30 we are going on a tour around the city. Our tour-guide is a gentleman from Chicago – USA. So no! I feel completly embarrassed, but really who cares; that was my first adventure around a city I didn’t know.He knew all there was to know about Cape Town – the history, the names of the mountains, who Vasco Da Gama is (History Standard 6 or 7 – or even before, the name sounded familliar, but God knows I didn’t remember a thing about him).The tour went via Muizenburg, Simons Town (it was Navy Week – I didn’t know there was such a thing until we went through that town), The Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, etc.I am so proud of myselfI am so proud of myself for having taken that enlightening tour it’s not funny.I have never had so much fun in my life – travelling with an Indian man (who enjoyed seeing things that I thought were normal – I mean the animals), my tour guide from Chicago (who was just a great guy who I’m embarrassed to admit knows my country’s history so much better than me it hurts), and my camera (full of pictures of everything – flora and fauna I couldn’t name if you paid me, I just love knowing that I saw all those things).That is my story about my trip to Cape Town. And since then, my first ever trip alone, I am now planning to go on a tour bus to Mpumalanga in July (alone or with my cousin) and one to the North West (okay not the whole province just Sun City – with my friends).Taking the Sho’t Left challenge …Story submitted to SAinfo on 9 April 2008last_img read more

Bearish news for soybeans in March 31 reports

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Soybeans saw bearish acres and stocks, corn prices had a friendly acres report and bearish stocks, and wheat was neutral following today’s Planting Intentions Report and Grain Stocks Report.Market talk about 2017 U.S. corn and soybean acres has been a dominant feature the last two weeks. During that time volume has been on the decrease. Daily price ranges from high to low, has been narrower than normal. Yet, the reality from previous report days suggests grain stocks are the more important number to watch. Grains stocks are a known number while acres are a prediction of what is yet to happen.Headed into the report traders were looking for bearish grain stocks and bearish acres numbers. Prior to the noon report, corn was up 2 cents, soybeans down 6 cents, and wheat was up 1 cent. Shortly after the report corn was up 4 cents, soybeans down 17 cents, with wheat up 2 cents.Today’s reports can be boiled down to two words, stocks and acres. Yet, in the simplicity of only two words, this day is often coined, “the most important USDA report day for the entire year.” It can also be a pretty volatile day for price action. Why? Big price moves have taken place in the past. December corn had it biggest up move on report day in 2011, up 30 cents. The biggest down day was 2013, down 32 cents. The average change is 10 cents. November soybeans biggest up day on report day was 2009, up 50 cents. The biggest down day was in 2008, down 70 cents. The average change was 20 cents. For perspective, daily price limits are, corn, 25 cents; soybeans, 70 cents, and wheat, 30 cents.U.S. corn acres in 2017 were estimated to be 89.996 million acres, big surprise. Last year U.S. corn acres were 94 million acres. The average estimate for corn was 90.9 million acres. Soybean acres for 2017 were estimated to be 89.482 million acres. Last year the U.S. soybean acres were 83.4 million acres. The average estimate for soybeans was 88.2 million acres. U.S. wheat acres in 2017 were estimated at 46.059 million acres. Last year the U.S. had 50.15 million acres of wheat. The average trade estimate was 46.13 million acres. It is no surprise corn and wheat acres were down while soybean acres were up. That has been a given conclusion for several months.US corn stocks on March 1 were estimated at 8.916 billion bushels. Last year corn stocks were 7.82 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 8.53 billion bushels. US soybean stocks were estimated at 1.735 billion bushels. Last year soybean stocks were 1.53 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 1.68 billion bushels. US wheat stocks on March 1 were estimated at 1.655 billion bushels. Last year wheat stocks were 1.37 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 1.62 billion bushels.last_img read more
