10 months agoI’ll build my Man Utd team around Pogba – Solskjaer

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say I’ll build my Man Utd team around Pogba – Solskjaerby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Paul Pogba’s attitude and says he will build his team around the French midfielder.Pogba endured a fractious relationship with former manager Jose Mourinho, which was well publicised over the past 18 months.However, the 25-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Juventus in recent weeks, has looked renewed in Solskjaer’s first two games in charge, scoring twice in Wednesday’s win over Huddersfield Town.”I think Paul’s a top, top player. He’s one of the best top, top players in the world,” said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference for Sunday’s clash with Bournemouth.”Attacking wise he’s done really well but he’s a big lad, can win headers, tackles, he’s been the same as the others. The attitude has been perfect and that’s key, you should be tired towards the end of every single game he’s been top class and we’re looking to build a team around of course but there are so many quality players.” last_img read more

Maricanns 70M financing deal falls through amid OSC investigation

first_imgTORONTO – Medical cannabis company Maricann Group Inc. says a $70 million financing deal announced last month has fallen through after the companies behind it terminated an underwriting agreement.The decision by Eight Capital, Canaccord Genuity Corp., GMP Securities L.P., Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and Clarus Securities Inc. follows the resignation Wednesday of Maricann’s chairman Neil Tabatznik and Raymond Stone, a board director.It also comes as the Ontario Securities Commission reviews the timing and reporting of certain trades of shares owned or controlled by and Tabatznik and Eric Silver.It added that the regulator has also told the company on Feb. 8 that Maricann chief executive Ben Ward is the subject of an investigation into his activities while he was CEO of Canadian Cannabis Corp., a wholly unrelated company.Maricann said earlier this week that it had been advised orally by the underwriters that they were not prepared to proceed and said Thursday that no reason was given for terminating the agreement.“We are disappointed to have received the notice of termination and are considering our options for further action,” said interim chairman Paul Pathak.CEO Benjamin Ward added that “it’s business as usual” at the company and is “moving full speed ahead in all operational areas.”Maricann said Wednesday that OSC staff have said they are unable to provide any further information about the review. An OSC spokeswoman said the regulator was not in a position to comment further.According to insider trading records, Tabatznik on Jan. 23 sold 412,000 shares he indirectly owned through Copper Lake Investments Inc. at roughly $4.16 each or a total of $1.714 million. A day later, Tabatznik sold 438,000 shares at roughly $4.26 each, or a total $1.864 million. And on Jan. 25, he sold another 5,000 shares for $4.25 each, or $21,250.Stone also sold shares he indirectly owned, through either Felicity Stone or R & FS Investments Inc., in January. On Jan. 22, records show he sold 915,837 shares for roughly $4.22 each or $3.87 million. A day later, he sold 104,421 shares at $4.20 each, and another 128,000 for $4.22 each, or a total of $978,728.Maricann, which has production facilities in both Langton, Ont. and Dresden, Germany, announced a proposed acquisition on Jan. 24 of all outstanding shares of Haxxon AG, a cultivator of female hemp cannabis flowers based in Regensdorf, Switzerland. The deal, which was targeted to close on March 30, would allow Maricann to produce cannabis flowers in Switzerland that would then be manufactured into products such as cannabis vape cartridges, the company said at the time.It has also been ramping up production capacity at home, as Canada moves to legalize marijuana for recreational use later this year, currently expanding its cultivation and support facilities in Canada to 87,515 square metres. When complete, Maricann’s facility is expected to produce 95,000 kilograms of dry cannabis flower per year, the company says.Company stock has fallen as much as 30 per cent on the Canadian Securities Exchange on Wednesday to $1.70 per share from Tuesday’s closing price of $2.49. The stock rose just over five per cent Thursday to close at $2.07.Companies in this story: (CSE:MARI)last_img read more


Swiss to vote on mandatory public TV fee as Europe watches

first_imgBERN, Switzerland – Voters in Switzerland are getting ready to decide whether they should have to keep paying hundreds of francs every year for public television and other government-supported programming, a referendum that is being watched closely elsewhere in Europe.The vote to eliminate the mandatory national TV fee was sponsored by free-market proponents and other fee critics, who say residents shouldn’t have to pay for public broadcasting if they watch or listen to it.Opponents of the “No Billag” vote — named for the company that collects the fees — argue that ensuring quality programming in an era of false news and media profits is in the public interest. Balloting concludes Sunday, when mail-in votes also will be counted to produce the result.Polls last year suggested that most Swiss were ready to scrap the fees, but more recent surveys indicated about two-thirds of voters will reject the proposal.Supporters of fee-supported radio and TV stations mounted a public relations blitz that all but painted Swiss culture and distinctiveness as being at dire risk. They enlisted celebrities to help push their message, warning that cherished news shows, music and film programming and free access to Olympics coverage could be ended.Both Switzerland’s parliament and seven-member executive body, the Federal Council, have come out for keeping the fee requirement.The issue resonates across Europe, where other fee-supported broadcasters have gotten grumbling about mandatory charges from some viewers.Currently, Swiss households pay just over 450 francs (about $480 or 390 euros) per year. Billag agents often go door-to-door making collections. The fee is set to decrease next year to 365 francs (about $389 or 316 euros), but the referendum is based more on principle than precise payments.Defenders of the fees, relatively high by European standards, insist that Switzerland needs to charge more because the country has a high cost of living and four national languages. Public broadcasters strive for balance and to make sure even the tiny Romansh-speaking community in southeast Switzerland gets time with German, French and Italian speakers, they say.Referendum opponents also argue that if Switzerland’s public broadcasters disappear, rivals from elsewhere in Europe would step into the void and provide fewer Swiss-specific shows and news programs.“What would be obviously terrible is that the great moments that unite the country — I think of course the news, but also film, culture, and music production — all that will disappear,” said Gilles Marchand, director of SRG SSR, the parent company for publicly supported broadcasters that reaps 1.2 billion francs from the TV fees each year.“Will we really be better off because of this one franc per day that people can re-invest elsewhere?” he said.The initiative’s backers say it’s a question of free choice in a democratic society. By ending what they call a “quasi-monopolistic” Swiss broadcasting universe, families would have another 450 francs in their budgets.The referendum’s organizers insist the aim is not to kill off public TV and radio, but open it up to competition. While the initiative’s language does not mention SRG SSR and its affiliates, critics have taken shots at what they see consider the overly high salaries of its executives.“It’s fake news to say that ‘No Billag’ is the end of (German-language network) SRF and all the other medias, because we are sure that this company with 6,000 employees and a very good infrastructure, that they can win in a free market,” Christian Riesen, one of the leaders of the campaign against the fees, said.last_img read more

Finance minister acknowledges skepticism vows to build Trans Mountain expansion

first_imgIn his speech to the Economic Club of Canada, Morneau acknowledged the “huge amount of anxiety” in Calgary over the future of the oil and gas sector despite the federal approval nearly 10 months after the Federal Court of Appeal quashed the pipeline’s 2016 approval.He insisted Canada can approve pipelines and still battle climate change, drawing a link between the issue of global warming and Western Canada’s wildfire problem this spring.But much of the speech was devoted to an election-style listing of his government’s economic accomplishments over the past three years _ a federal election is expected in October.“What we said yesterday was that we renewed that (pipeline) approval,” Morneau told reporters.“What’s happening today is we’re back at work. The re-permitting is happening starting today. We are going to get work going this construction season. I want people in Alberta and people across the country to know that intent is real.” CALGARY, A.B. – Canada’s finance minister says the best way to convince a skeptical oilpatch that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion Ottawa approved Tuesday will actually be built is to go ahead and build it.Bill Morneau told reporters after giving a speech in downtown Calgary that the $7.4-billion project to triple capacity on the line from Edmonton to the West Coast is moving ahead with getting permits.He repeated a commitment made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday that construction on the project will begin in this year’s building season, without being specific as to exactly when.last_img read more


Morocco the new favored destination for Israeli Runaways

first_imgCasablanca- Earlier this year, founder of the Shuvu Bonim religious seminary in Israel, Eliezer Berland, 76, had fled to Morocco after being incriminated of sexually abusing two women. The Chasidic rabbi was not the only “runway” to seek shelter in Morocco, a thing that has aroused the anxiety of the Jewish community in Morocco.Before his residency permit in Morocco expired, Berland had lured several followers to him especially on his grandson’s wedding. According to news outlet Haaretz, Berland was forced to leave the kingdom mainly by the Jewish community there, as his presence, along with that of other Israeli fugitives, was deemed as jeopardy to Muslim-Jewish relations in Morocco.“Berland was the last straw; he really had to go,” Sam Ben Chetrit, president of the World Federation of Moroccan Jewry, was quoted as saying by Haaretz.According to the same source, several Israelis residing permanently or temporarily in Morocco have mafia ties.Meir Abergil, Moshe Elgrably; and Shalom Domran are all names of Israeli fugitives the Harretz cites to demonstrate how the kingdom has become “a go-to-place” for Israeli outlaws escaping the grip of law in Israel.Strikingly shocking, these Israeli criminals easily earn the permission to reside in Morocco after a few manipulations at the level of administrative documentation.Moreover, some Moroccan Jews seem to support some of these Israeli fugitives. Jacky Kadoch, president of the Marrakech Jewish community, had showed support for Berland and disapproved of all allegations against him.Yet, other Moroccan Jews see in the presence of such fugitives a threat to the Muslim-Jewish relationships as well as jeopardy to the Jewish community’s reputation in Morocco, which is inescapably tainted by the criminal profiles of Israeli fugitives who flee to the kingdom.© Morocco World News.

Lawyer names Pryor Posey as players he warned Tressel about

Terrelle Pryor and DeVier Posey reportedly are the Ohio State football players who were mentioned in e-mails to coach Jim Tressel regarding his players’ association with a Columbus tattoo shop owner who is under a federal drug trafficking investigation. In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” Columbus lawyer Christopher Cicero confirmed he mentioned Pryor and Posey while informing Tressel of his players’ involvement with Eddie Rife, the owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor. Pryor and Posey, along with Dan Herron, Mike Adams, Solomon Thomas and Jordan Whiting, were suspended for the start of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits from Rife. Tressel exchanged eight e-mails about the players’ involvement with Rife from April 2, 2010, through June 6, 2010. Earlier this week, OSU released the e-mail conversation between Cicero and Tressel OSU representatives on Friday declined to confirm the names of the football players Cicero mentioned. University spokesman Jim Lynch said the university is required by law to redact information that is specific to individual students. “The Federal Education Rights & Privacy Act requires us to redact any information that can lead to the identity of students, especially a student’s name,” Lynch said in an e-mail to The Lantern. “As caretaker of these documents, we still cannot reveal the student names in the document.” Athletic department spokeswoman Shelly Poe also declined to confirm ESPN’s report, saying in an e-mail to The Lantern, “We will not have any more comments until the NCAA makes its ruling.” Tressel said he did not report the actions of his players because of confidentiality issues. OSU’s investigation of the matter also resulted in suspending Tressel for the first two games of 2011 for failing to properly report the possible infraction to the university after Cicero brought it to his attention. Tressel was fined $250,000 to cover the costs of OSU’s self-imposed investigation. Cicero, a former OSU linebacker and letterman during the 1983 season, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. read more


Ohio State Athlete of the Week Tiffany Cameron

Ohio State women’s soccer forward Tiffany Cameron said she’d made a promise with herself heading into her senior season. “It’s my senior year and I made a promise to myself that I am going to go into every game like it’s my last,” Cameron said. Having notched five game-winning goals and the Sept. 10 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor, it seems that Cameron is making good on the promise to herself.. “It’s an honor, so I was very excited and happy,” Cameron said of winning the Big Ten honor. “I know a lot of people are happy for me and proud of me and I just need to keep it up.” Cameron said her strengths make her stand out as an offensive player. “I think (it’s) my ability to run at players and get in and behind players,” Cameron said. “My finishing has been pretty good so far … I think (those are) my biggest strengths, just kind of playing around with the ball and doing my own thing and swagger.” Cameron has scored seven goals in her last six games and has eight total scores on the season. OSU freshman forward Marisa Wolf said Cameron works hard to score those goals. “She is determined and won’t give up until she gets that goal,” Wolf said. Cameron’s productivity, however, hasn’t necessarily been limited to this season. In her career as a Buckeye, Cameron has netted 19 goals, 11 assists and 10 game-winners since arriving to Columbus in 2009. In that span, she’s played in 66 games and started in 61 of them. Coach Lori Walker said Cameron’s ability to be unpredictable helps her succeed on the field. “Very unpredictable when she has the ball at her feet,” Walker said. “When we need her most she is coming through for us, so I credit to just how hard she is working and the entire team works hard to get her in the right place and I think that is an important part.” Cameron, though, admitted she has a weakness. “This year, I am working on not letting things get to my head and taking it one step at a time,” Cameron said. “I think when I take things one step at a time I succeed.” Sunday’s 2-1 overtime victory against Minnesota was the Big Ten opener for the Buckeyes, and Cameron said she is excited to take on more Big Ten teams this season. “I am definitely looking forward to the Penn State game because they are always coming out to play hard and they are a good team,” Cameron said. “I think the Penn State game and Wisconsin and Michigan, but mostly the Penn State game.” Cameron and OSU are scheduled to take on Illinois on Friday at 7 p.m. in Champaign, Ill. read more


Ohio State continues taking pride in defense

Junior guard Shannon Scott (left) guards an opposing player during a game against North Dakota State Dec. 14 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 79-62.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAs former Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant once said: “Offense sells tickets. Defense wins championships.”If that is to be believed, then the No. 3 Ohio State men’s basketball team is a lock for a deep run in the NCAA Tournament this season.A year after losing one of the most prolific scorers in Buckeye basketball history, forward Deshaun Thomas, to the 2013 NBA Draft, the Buckeyes have built a winning start to this season on defense.Despite falling in their most recent game, a 72-68 defeat in overtime against No. 5 Michigan State in East Lansing, Mich., the Buckeyes are still allowing only an even 56 points per game. The 72 put up by the Spartans was the highest total against OSU this season.The Spartans struggled at times against OSU’s defense, turning over the ball over 17 times. After the game, MSU coach Tom Izzo was complimentary of the Buckeye defense.“Everybody knows they’re the best defensive team in the country,” Izzo said. “Everybody knows those guards are leading the country in steals. They get after you. You just have to man up.”Two of OSU’s starting guards, senior Aaron Craft and junior Shannon Scott, are in the top 35 in the country in steals per game, with Craft tied for 20th.Scott, who tallied three steals against the Spartans, has been improving consistently on defense despite still making mistakes, OSU coach Thad Matta said.“He got out of position one time and they made us pay for it, but Shannon is quick,” Matta said after the game Tuesday. “He is difficult to guard and he hit some big free throws, some big shots down the stretch.”The 56 points per game is best in the Big Ten, with second place and No. 4-ranked Wisconsin allowing 60.5 a contest.OSU freshman forward Marc Loving said Dec. 17 that having such a strong defensive team makes every practice tougher than the games.“The game’s are a lot easier compared to practice … we have one of the best defense in the country,” Loving said. “So when we practice with great defenders like (senior guard) Lenzelle (Smith Jr.), Aaron (Craft) and (junior forward) Sam (Thompson) … they’re lock down defenders so the game will just be 10 times easier when you get on the court.”Since Big Ten play began, the Buckeyes are allowing 64.7 points per game, but their defense continues to impress.Nebraska coach Tim Miles said after his team lost to OSU, 84-53, Jan. 4 that it’s hard to get things going against such a talented defensive team.“Ohio State’s really good … their defensive quickness really causes problems. They have the ability to switch a lot of things,” Miles said.Before the Big Ten opener against Purdue, Scott said the team is enjoying the way it plays defense.“I think as a team standpoint, we’re taking pride in our defense now,” Scott said Dec. 30. “It’s not just me and Aaron … it’s everybody now. The fact that we’re all taking pride in that makes it a lot of fun for us to play defense and hopefully we can keep doing it in the Big Ten and keep going from there.”The Buckeyes will need a stout defensive performance in their next game to prevent a second consecutive loss. The 20th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes (12-3, 1-1) are scheduled to visit Columbus to take on the Buckeyes, and come in sporting the conference’s top offense, scoring an average 86.1 points per game.Scott said Dec. 13 the goal for the Buckeyes is to make teams fear playing against the defense.“Coach Matta talks about it a lot, about every game, that we’re the best defense in the country,” Scott said. “We really want to have that in our heads that nobody should be able to score on us … From a viewpoint of other teams speaking of us as a problem on defense, we really want that to happen. We want them to be scared to play against us. As long as we can keep doing that, it’s going to make our game a lot easier.” read more
