Posted on

first_img 3 3 Joint third: With eight consecutive wins in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 respectively, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Lazio and Marseille can boast the third longest winning streaks in Europe’s top 10 leagues in the 2014/15 season. Click the arrow above, right, to find out which club has the second best run of league wins this season! – Arsenal’s eight-game winning streak in the Premier League came to an end last weekend with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, scuppering Gunners hopes of matching their Premier League record run of consecutive victories, set in 2002. Lazio’s eight game run lifted the club from sixth to second in Serie A, coming to an end with defeat against champions-elect Juventus on 18 April, but they are currently a point clear of third-placed city rivals Roma. Marseille won eight games in a row early on to lead Ligue 1, but relinquished top spot early in 2015 and are now on a run of four consecutive defeats, dropping them to fifth and leaving Champions League football a fading possibility. Only Bayern out of this quartet sit top of their league, with Pep Guardiola’s team already crowned champions. As are the next team in our list – click right to find out who they are! In second place, with 11 straight Eredivisie wins, it’s Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, who won 11 on the bounce to help secure their first Eredivisie title in six years. Click the arrow above, right, to see which club has enjoyed the best sequence of victories in Europe’s top 10 leagues this season – Winning their 22nd Eredivisie title this season, the Red and Whites went three months unbeaten, until their 11-game winning streak came to an end with a 3-1 defeat to second placed Ajax. Still, they won the division comfortably! Only the top 10 leagues in Europe included, as per UEFA’s national co-efficient rankings.All statistics correct on 28 April 2015. In first place, it’s Real Madrid, who notched up 12 Liga wins in a row between September and December 2014 – From their 8-2 win away to Deportivo La Coruna on 20 September to a 4-1 win at Almeria on 12 December, Carlo Ancelotti’s side couldn’t stop winning in the Spanish top flight. This spell included a 3-1 Clasico victory over Barcelona at the Bernabeu and in those 12 consecutive league games, Los Blancos scored a whopping 68 goals. At time of writing, though, they trail Barcelona by two points with five games to go, thanks to the Catalans winning 14 of their last 16 league games, while Real lost two and drew one of four games in March. Madrid are now on a run of five consecutive Liga victories and will probably need to extend that run to 10 if they are to overhaul Barca. 3last_img read more

first_imgFor the Times-StandardThe Pacific halibut bite all along the North Coast has been nothing short of spectacular this week.

They seem to be all up and down the line clear to Trinidad in 250 to 300 feet of water.” …last_img read more

Some 400 teams in the UK alone took part in the regional finals this year.Manor Gardens Primary School beat 150 teams from schools around South Africa in their regional finals held in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.Teams have to get through 10 rounds of 10 questions in the regional finals.

A Raptors spokesman said Ibaka was reacting to something Chriss said to him after the Toronto player was knocked to the floor.Cleveland held a 91-77 lead when the fight occurred and poured it on in the fourth quarter.

Commercial Operators Urged to Dispose of Garbage Properly

Posted on

first_img Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Audley Gordon, is urging operators of commercial entities to work with the agency to ensure the proper disposal of solid waste. As such, he is advising developers to check with the Authority on proper waste-disposal protocol before they begin construction. Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Audley Gordon, is urging operators of commercial entities to work with the agency to ensure the proper disposal of solid waste.While the NSWMA is not responsible for the removal of commercial garbage, Mr. Gordon told JIS News that business owners can consult the agency in order to put proper arrangements in place.He lamented that a number of commercial centres across the island do not have adequate facilities for solid-waste storage and disposal.As such, he is advising developers to check with the Authority on proper waste-disposal protocol before they begin construction.“First of all, you should make arrangements when you are building the plaza where the trucks will have access to get the garbage and where the garbage will be housed. All those things have to be included in the planning. We are appealing to commercial entities and developers to get us in on the conversation early when doing these plans, so that the solid waste management can be part of the overall strategy when you are building,” he stressed.The NSWMA Executive Director warned that persons who continue to litter could face stiffer sanctions under new regulations to come on stream shortly for breaches of the NSWMA Act.Meanwhile, Senior Investigator for the NSWMA, Phillip Morgan, said that operators of commercial enterprises should ensure that waste and other debris are properly containerised and taken to an approved dump site.This, he noted, is particularly important for food establishments, which must have a proper waste-disposal system in place in order to be issued a public health certificate to operate.For persons who contract the NSWMA, Mr. Morgan explained that an agent will visit the establishment to assess waste in terms of how many bags are generated per day or per week, and a rate will then be applied.“For example, if it is $200 to collect a bag and you generate 10 bags per week, you would pay $2,000 for the collection of waste every week. Persons who prefer to have waste removed from the premises daily will do so for an additional cost,” he said.Enterprises found in breach of the NSWMA Act will be charged with illegal dumping. This is a prosecutable offence under the law.Section 45A of the NSWMA Act stipulates that persons who dispose of waste in a manner not approved by the Authority, if found guilty, can be fined up to $1 million or sentenced to a nine-month jail term or both.“It may start with a ticket fine for littering. The lower end is $2,000 for the person who actually does the littering. For the person who employs the person doing the littering, it is $10,000. But, it may go up to as much as $1 million if brought before the court, and, also, they might face jail time,” Mr. Morgan outlined.The NSWMA is the regulator of the waste collection industry and is mandated to collect domestic or residential waste.Arrangements for waste collection and disposal can be made by business operators through the NSWMA’s regional bodies.These are Metropolitan Parks and Markets (MPM) Waste Management Limited, Southern Parks and Markets (SPM) Waste Management Limited, Western Parks and Markets (WPM) Waste Management Limited; and North Eastern Parks and Markets (NEPM) Waste Management Limited.Operators can also contract the services of a private waste collector. The NSWMA Executive Director warned that persons who continue to litter could face stiffer sanctions under new regulations to come on stream shortly for breaches of the NSWMA Act.

In the news today Aug 29

first_imgSix stories in the news for Thursday, Aug. 29———B.C. ANTI-GANG UNITS TARGETING KIDS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLSA senior officer in the RCMP’s gang enforcement unit in Surrey, B.C., says he didn’t expect to find himself working in elementary schools. Sgt. Mike Sanchez says there are already signs of kids glorifying what he describes as a “gang lifestyle.” He says they wear clothes mimicking older kids who sell drugs and show no surprise when his team gives its presentation. A task force on gang violence found that while many promising programs, they often operate in silos and with limited budgets. The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit says the average age of a gangster on the Lower Mainland remains in the late 20s. But the task force found teens and young adults can be attractive partners for older, more entrenched gangsters who may direct them to kill, which reduces the risk of retaliation and criminal charges.———FACTS AREN’T FAIL PROOF IN POLITICS: SURVEYA survey probing how people use facts to form beliefs suggests that even when given accurate information, many people still get the facts wrong. The Digital Democracy Project told poll participants that Canada is not on track to meet its climate-change commitments, which is true. But even when armed with that fact, barely half of those surveyed then correctly answered a question on the subject. Researchers say the results show it is possible for journalists and politicians to correct the record, but not easy. The project, led by the Public Policy Forum and the Max Bell School of Public Policy at McGill University, is exploring how people’s ideas are shaped by the information they consume and in turn how that might shape their vote this fall.———FUNERAL TODAY FOR B.C. TEEN WHO DIED OF APPARENT OVERDOSEDA celebration of life is set to be held today for a 14-year-old British Columbia boy whose apparent drug overdose death was captured on video and posted to social media. Carson Crimeni’s death on Aug. 7 in Langley, B.C., is under investigation by RCMP and B.C.’s police oversight body, the Independent Investigations Office. Crimeni was found that night in an area near the skateboard park and was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead. RCMP have set up a 24-hour tip line seeking anyone who may have seen Crimeni in the hours before he died, as well as anyone who might have seen him with any other groups of people. An obituary published by Crimeni’s family last week described the teen as a “fun-loving jokester” who had “dreams of becoming a veterinarian or chef.” The funeral is to take place this afternoon in a Langley church.———HOSPITAL TO DEVELOP THERAPY GEARED TOWARD SOUTH ASIANSCanada’s largest mental health hospital is developing a specialized form of psychotherapy that will be catered toward Canadians of South Asian origin. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto says it hopes to have a culturally adapted manual on the specialized form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, as well as a therapist training package ready by November. CAMH psychiatrist Dr. Farooq Naeem says he will be consulting with patients, caregivers, mental health professionals and community leaders on the project. He says evidence shows that CBT is as good as medications to treat depression and anxiety, as well as to prevent relapse. He says he hopes the culturally adapted C-B-T will help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health for South Asians and encourage members of the community to seek help if needed.———LIBERALS PLEDGE $1.5M TO TACKLE CAMPUS ASSAULTThe Liberal government is committing up to $1.5 million to help colleges and universities get better at dealing with sexual violence on campus. Maryam Monsef, the minister for women and gender equality, says the money is to be spent over two years to fill gaps in resources that post-secondary institutions need to tackle the problem. Student groups welcomed the effort but said those promises should be backed up by the resources and oversight needed to make them work. The Liberal government committed $5.5 million over five years toward the initiative in the 2018 federal budget, which also came with a threat. The budget said that beginning this year, the federal government would consider holding back funding from institutions that are not putting “best practices addressing sexual assaults on campus” into place.———YOUR WARD NEWS PUBLISHER SET TO BE SENTENCEDThe publisher of a free Toronto newspaper that promoted hatred against Jews and women is expected to be sentenced today. The prosecution wants 77-year-old LeRoy St. Germaine jailed for six months. St. Germaine was found guilty in January of two hate counts but sentencing has been delayed repeatedly. A week ago, the editor of Your Ward News was given a one-year term. The judge said he would have given James Sears a stiffer sentence had the law had allowed. The judge said the publication promoted hate to a large audience, both in print and online.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi makes a coal mine reclamation project announcement.— B.C.
