by ,

first_imgThe agreements – signed with the Gitxaala First Nation, Kitselas First Nation, and Yekooche First Nation – cover the pipeline projects of TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink, the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission, and Spectra’s Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission.According to the province, pipeline benefit-sharing offers First Nations the opportunity to partner in economic development, provide jobs and business opportunities, and “is a powerful way for government and First Nations to work together to help grow the LNG industry.”The three First Nations will receive an initial one-time benefit payment on the date of the agreement, and an additional construction-related payment – 50 per cent when construction begins and the other half once the pipeline is operational.- Advertisement -“It is important to ensure that members of our communities benefit from economic development on land that we have been interconnected with for generations,” Chief Joe Bevan of the Kitselas First Nation says.The one-time benefit payments are triggered once the First Nations’ signal they want the agreement to come into effect, as some have chosen to make their agreement effective upon signing with the province, while others are waiting to sign impact benefit agreements with the companies.In addition to the payments made on construction-related milestones, the three First Nations a provided with a share of $10 million a year in ongoing benefits per pipeline project that affects their traditional territory.Advertisement “Gitxaala First Nation welcomes the opportunity to be an active partner of LNG in B.C.,” says Chief Clarence Innis of the Gitxaala First Nation. “In addition to our pipeline benefits agreements, we look forward to our members further participating in skills training and environmental stewardship opportunities.”The provincial government anticipates signing similar agreements with other First Nations in the near future.last_img read more

Five things we learned from the Premier League

first_img0Shares0000De Bruyne ran the show against Leicester as Man City moved 16 points clear © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 11 – Kevin De Bruyne was the creative fulcrum of Manchester City’s latest demolition job, while Mousa Dembele inspired Tottenham’s north London derby triumph.Manchester United star Paul Pogba is still struggling, but Swansea are on the up under Carlos Carvalhal. Here are five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:De Bruyne steps upSergio Aguero grabbed the headlines for his four-goal second-half haul as Manchester City leaped another step closer to Pep Guardiola’s first Premier League title in a 5-1 thrashing of Leicester, but it was Kevin De Bruyne who was once again the architect of City’s success.The Belgian even momentarily joked he, not Aguero, was having the match ball for a hat-trick of assists for Raheem Sterling’s opener and Aguero’s first two goals.“He has everything,” gushed Guardiola. “Every game… amount of assists, amount of passes, shots, goals, how he fights, how he runs… this season the performance of Kevin so far there are no words. It’s so special.”De Bruyne’s display was even more inspirational as he took responsibility given City’s current lack of cover in creative areas in the absence of David Silva and Leroy Sane through injury.Dembele the midfield maestroDembele dominated in midfield for Spurs in the north London derby © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONMousa Dembele underlined his status as one of Tottenham’s unsung heroes with a dominant display in their 1-0 win over north London rivals Arsenal.It was Harry Kane’s latest goal-scoring exploits against the Gunners that took centre-stage at Wembley, but the platform of that success was built by the industrious Dembele.Embodying Mauricio Pochettino’s obsession with physical intensity, while more than capable of picking a decisive pass, Dembele out-shone Arsenal in the midfield engine room, earning praise from his manager.“Last season he played so well, this season he suffered a problem in his ankle and struggled in pre-season. Now he is playing well again,” Pochettino said.“He is an unbelievable player. We have to be careful about his fitness. When he can train he can make this type of performance.”Pogba flops againPogba was ineffectual as United lost at Newcastle to slip back towards their fellow top-four hopefuls © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYAs if losing 1-0 to struggling Newcastle wasn’t enough to have Jose Mourinho seething, the Manchester United boss once again had to suffer the frustration of Paul Pogba’s latest flop.Mourinho had restored Pogba to the starting line-up after dropping him for United’s previous match — a decision inspired by the former Juventus midfielder’s limp efforts in a defeat at Tottenham.But rather than grasp the opportunity to get back in Mourinho’s good books just days after his boss had defended their relationship, Pogba was again a largely anonymous figure at St James’ Park.By the time he was substituted midway through the second half, United were already trailing, but publicly at least, Mourinho remains supportive.“No problems,” he said when asked about the France international. “I wanted a better way (in midfield) against a side that was defending in a block. I wanted the simplicity of Michael Carrick.”Carvalhal has Swansea cookingCarvalhal has taken Swansea from rock-bottom to out of the relegation zone © AFP/File / Ben STANSALLCarlos Carvalhal has served up amazing results and interviews in equal measure since he was surprisingly appointed to spearhead Swansea’s fight for survival on December 28.Saturday was no different as Ki Sung-Yeung’s winner nine minutes from time after Carvalhal had thrown on two extra strikers took the Welsh side out of the relegation zone.When the Portuguese arrived, Swansea were bottom of the table and five points adrift of safety. “It was time to put all the meat on the barbeque,” said the colourful Carvalhal of his attacking instinct.Swansea have now won more points, 14, in Carvalhal’s seven games in charge than the 13 his predecessor Paul Clement collected in 20 matches.Southampton slide into bottom threeWhilst Huddersfield, Newcastle and Swansea enjoyed morale-boosting wins, Southampton’s slide continued as Mauricio Pellegrino’s men were swept aside 2-0 by Liverpool.A run of just one win in their last 14 league outings has seen the Saints slip into the bottom three.An unwillingness to spend the £75 million bounty they received from Virgil van Dijk’s move to Liverpool in January could come back to cost the Southampton hierarchy as they look short of inspiration in attack and are badly missing the Dutchman in defence.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ssimbwa resigns at Sofapaka citing sabotage

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 8- Sam Ssimbwa has tendered his resignation as Sofapaka head coach just moments after his side’s 2-1 loss to hitherto winless Thika United at the Thika Sub-County Stadium on Sunday evening.Sofapaka president Elly Kalekwa has told Capital Sport that they have already received the tactician’s resignation letter and have immediately elevated John Baraza to take over as interim coach. “The coach has alleged that the players have been sabotaging him and not playing to his instructions. We have accepted the resignation because once someone says he doesn’t want to continue working, what do you do?” Kalekwa posed.He added; “Baraza is a qualified coach and you remember he helped us to avoid relegation so we have full faith in him.”Sofapaka have lost their second successive match after a run that seemed to have taken them back on track with four wins off five matches.Kalekwa says he has been disappointed with the performance of the team and hopes Baraza can turn the fortunes as they look to battle for their second Kenyan Premier League title.“We have very good players and yet we have been losing. We have not been playing well at all. It would be a different case if we were playing well and losing but now I think the players also need to improve their game,” a dejected Kalekwa further added.Ssimbwa had riled Sofapaka earlier in the season after declaring the side would not be battling for the title after just four games. He went on to lament that he had not been consulted in signing of the new players while some left without his consent.Despite the loss, Sofapaka remained fourth on the table, seven points off leaders Mathare United.The slum boys continued with their brilliant start to the season picking a hard fought 1-0 win over Tusker FC at the Ruaraka Stadium.Mathare United midfielder Edward Seda attempts to make a shot under pressure from Tusker FC’s Boniface Muchiri during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Ruaraka Complex on April 8, 2018.

Further to that, the striker playing his first season in the KPL bagged home the Golden Boot award which had a Sh500,000 prize on it, adding on a further Sh200,000 from the Young Player of the Year Award.To top up his glittering night, Kapaito earned a further Sh75,000 as the first runner up in the fair play player award.The former FC Talanta forward struck 16 goals in 28 matches, four of which were as a substitute. Four of his goals for Sharks were match winning goals which earned the team 12 of the 51 points Sharks gathered this season.Zoo Kericho midfielder Mike Madoya receives his fair play player of the year award on October 25, 2018.

He scored 14 goals for Zoo, three of them being match winning goals while two were point winning goals. Overall, he contributed 11 points for his side.Mathare United youngster Cliff Nyakeya was another big winner from the ceremony bagging Sh300,000 off the midfielder of the year award beating Ulinzi Stars’ Elvis Nandwa and Madoya.Nyakeya played all 34 of Mathare United’s matches this season, amassing 2,978 minutes and scoring 14 goals in the process, two coming off the penalty spot.Cliff Nyakeya scored a brace with Klinsman Omulanga scoring the equalizer as Mathare played to a 1-1 draw with Wazito FC at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on July 14, 2018.

He also marshaled the league’s meanest defense which conceded only 20 goals in 34 games.Gor Mahia forward George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo controls the ball under pressure from Bandari defender Felly Mulumba/ PHOTO/COURTESYPosta’s Titus Achesa was second in the category having played 30 games, scoring twice in the process.

With the brewers, he took charge of 23 games, winning 14, drawing four and losing five for a win rate of 60.87pc, only close to Kerr’s of 67.65.Mwalala meanwhile managed both Nzoia Sugar and Bandari FC, taking charge of 13 for Bandari and 20 for Nzoia.

LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FROM US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE!

by ,

first_imgA CO Donegal man who became a TV hit after appearing on a top-rated show in America has been lucky again – after landing a super new job with a millionaire!Craig Magee was minding his own business while on holiday in Hollywood in September when he accidentally walked onto the set of the Ellen Degeneres Show.The normally chatty host was left almost speechless when the Irish hunk Craig, 25, from Kirskstown, quickly whipped off his t-shirt. Now Craig has told Donegal Daily he got luck again just a few days later on the island of Fiji where he and girlfriend Jayne had stopped off on their way to New Zealand where he was hoping to get a job.“After I left the USA I had a stop over in Fiji for ten days. As I’d been traveling for around three weeks already I was starting to think about funds so I had to get in to my job seeking mode,” said Craig.“So while I was sitting in a bar in a Fiji resort I struck up a conversation with a middle aged couple and funny enough they happened to be from Auckland which was my next destination.“I proceeded to fight my corner in regards to the Ireland rugby team’s performance in the last world cup and tried to make him bite by saying how lucky the kiwis were to beat France but he just shrugged and laughed at me! Pretty justified!! “As conversation continued he asked me what my plans were for when I got to Auckland and I proceeded to tell him that I worked in construction and there it was, BINGO, he happened to be a building contractor with a big project starting the day I was to arrive.“So I spent a few days with them and he offered me work which I gladly accepted.. Job seeking the Irish way is always best! Who needs stress of CVs when gods gave us the gift of the gab!!”Craig got settled in digs last weekend.“I started work on the Monday morning, on a 3 million dollar mansion in the Orakai basin outside the city. Its almost like the Hollywood of Auckland,” said the Donegal man.He says Auckland is a diverse and very clean city. “People are very friendly and helpful although its sometimes is hard to believe you are in New Zealand with such a big Asian community,” said Craig.“It’s been a pretty vibrant atmosphere recently with the arrival of all the triathlon athletes from all the different countries. I’ve tried my best to follow and cheer all the Irish athletes home and I took great pride in seeing Constadine Dohertys’ great performance in the junior boys triathlon. Auckland’s got a massive running culture with cycling being very popular as well. Rugby, of course always gets priority however… So all in all, if you like your exercise, Auckland’s for you,” he said.“I spend most of my spare time getting some photographs and visiting the local islands where the scenery is phenomenal. Restaurants and bars are priced relatively similar to home and seafood is brilliant.“Work in NZ seems to be pretty easy to come by from speaking to others. On entering the workforce all you need to apply for is your IRD number which is your tax number, set up a bank account (which is very straight forward) and the will to work with a smile on your face.Moving to Christchurch is also on my to do list. As everybody knows the earthquakes are a major talking point but I have been reassured that if you allow the quakes to stop you from going there for work I’d be missing out. “Speaking to a Galway man and his girlfriend last week he spoke of the Irish community their and how it reminded him of home. Of course, I asked why and he proceeded to tell me of the Gaelic football and the soccer teams the Irish boys were involved in there and also how the difficult times have pulled people together because they have to. ” Every man helps the next man,he said, then we move next door, that’s how it is. The money is good and you can have all the work you want”.LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FROM US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE! was last modified: October 31st, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FOR US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE!last_img read more

England blow hot and cold in pre-World Cup friendly win over Nigeria

by ,

first_img3 3 Harry Kane netted England’s second 3center_img Goals from Harry Kane and Gary Cahill ensured England overcame Nigeria 2-1 in a pre-World Cup friendly at Wembley on Saturday.The Three Lions were 2-0 up at half time, having put in a very impressive performance, though an early second-half strike from Alex Iwobi halted Gareth Southgate’s side’s momentum.The game began positively for England as Gary Cahill headed home from a Kieran Trippier corner with less than seven minutes on the clock.Raheem Sterling had a couple of chances, but lacked end product, breaking the offside trap before wasting a cross and then firing over when well-placed.However, he did provide the pass for captain Harry Kane to double England’s lead after 39 minutes as his shot slipped under the body of Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi halved the advantage two minutes into the second period, firing home from just inside the box after an Odion Ighalo shot struck the post.This prompted a dip in England’s performance before Sterling made headlines once again as he was rightly booked for diving later in the game.The result was ultimately seen out, but not in the most emphatic fashion.Star man – Gary CahillIn the first half, Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Gary Cahill all put in impressive shifts, though Cahill was the only one of this trio to carry his performance into the second period. His early goal was a positive start for the Three Lions and he helped organise England’s defence, ensuring they didn’t capitulate.Moment of the matchUnfortunately the moment that will likely generate the most headlines from this match was Raheem Sterling’s second half simulation. The 23-year-old has had a tumultuous week, but didn’t help himself as he threw his body to the floor in an attempt to win a penalty. He was rightly carded.What the fans are saying Line-ups:England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Cahill, Trippier, Dier, Alli (Delph 82), Young (Rose 68), Sterling (Rashford 73), Lingard (Loftus-Cheek 67), Kane (Welbeck 73)Nigeria: Uzoho, Idowu, Ekong, Balogun (Omeruo 45), Onazi (Etebo 45), Mikel, Obi (Ogu 45), Shehu (Ebuehi 45), Ighalo (Iheanacho 77), Moses (Musa 63), Iwobilast_img read more

Souness says ‘selfish’ Pogba is only in the Man United team for one reason

HERE WE GO AGAIN! NEW YEAR, SAME CRY AS ANOTHER PLAYER SLAMS DONEGAL

by ,

first_imgTHEY HAVEN’T gone away you know – critics of the Donegal GAA senior football team!Former Monaghan player Eugene Sherry is the latest critic, especially of THAT match against Dublin.Interviewed by Setanta Sports, Sherry said: “It seemed that the whole emphasis in that match was on not giving the ball away and that seems to be the priority common to most teams now. “Keeping possession at all costs seems to be what it’s all about instead of opening up the game and kicking a ball, for instance, 40 yards up the field.“Being honest, the Donegal/Dublin game was hard to watch. I was all for Donegal when they won the Ulster title but didn’t want them to progress after that.”Sherry feels that we can expect to see more focus on unadventurous tactics, and that worries him.“I think football could be in trouble and could end up on the receiving end of a slow death because of the approach of some coaches,” the Ulster SFC and NFL medallist said. “Supporters want to see the rough and tumble of football where there are physical clashes and the ball is moved quickly towards the goal.“I’d be afraid for the future of football because this business of concentrating on cutting down space in the scoring zone could ruin the game.“I’d be fond of most sports but while the profile of soccer and rugby is increasing, the GAA will have to be careful, otherwise football will lose out.“Spectators don’t want to see blanket defences and then seeing passes going over and back across the field, often resulting in no end product.” HERE WE GO AGAIN!
