It will bring us down a peg or two. This sort of thing had been in the air for a few games and we botched up big time tonight.”Milan, which will be missing several players because of injury for Sunday’s match, has won its past three league games to move up to fourth in Serie A.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Sherman Nets First Brace for PKNS FC

first_imgSherman scored his first brace in PKNS FC’s 3-2 win against Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, April 27, 2019.Liberia’s Malaysia-based striker Kpah Sherman, first brace for PKNS FC in the Malaysian Super League continues to fly the Liberian flag high in the Asian league by performing to expectation.“I am happy to be here to start another chapter of my football career with focus to be steady in the league and contribute more to my new club,” said Sherman after signing a one-year deal with the top flight club in December 2018.Noted for his forceful style of play in pressuring opponents, Sherman opened his goal scoring account on February 17, 2019, after helping his team secured a 4-0 win against FA Salangor.At the moment, all seems to be going well so far for the 27-year-old in the new chapter of his football career. Over the weekend, he scored his first brace for PKNS FC in their 3-2 win against Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, April 27 at the Shah Alam Stadium in Selangor.Selangor (Pop. 5.79 million in 2013) is a state on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, encircling the capital Kuala Lumpur. In the state capital, Shah Alam, the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque has four soaring minarets and a huge blue dome. To the northeast are the limestone Batu Caves, which house ornately decorated Hindu shrines. A large golden statue of the Hindu god Lord Murugan stands at the entrance, and monkeys scamper about.Sherman scored his first goal in the 31st minute to make the scores 2-0, before Kuala Lumpur got a consolation at the brink of half time. Upon return to the second half, the national team striker completed his brace in the 78th,  followed by another consolation in the 82nd minute.The weekend’s brace from the former BYC striker, increased his goals tally to four out of eight league games, two assists and two goals from two games in the Malaysia FA Cup. Sherman’s performance also earned him an accolade after he was named “Man of the Match” and player of the week by his team.His recent accomplishment comes a little over a week after he scored the lone goal in his team’s 1-0 win over JDT, securing their qualification to the quarterfinals.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Championship club confirms interest in Manchester United striker

first_img1 Derby head coach Paul Clement has confirmed he has enquired about Manchester United striker James Wilson.Despite selling Javier Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen and allowing Adnan Januzaj to join Borussia Dortmund on loan, United look likely to allow Wilson – one of only four recognised forwards at Old Trafford – to leave on loan.The £36million purchase of teenager Anthony Martial from Monaco appears to be a factor in the decision.It has been reported that more than 20 clubs have enquired about the 19-year-old, who has yet to feature this season for Louis van Gaal’s team, and Clement has revealed the Rams are one of those.“It is a possibility but not a certainty,” said Clement.“We have shown an interest. He is a very talented player and a number of other clubs have shown an interest as well.“We are waiting to hear back from Manchester United.”Former Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid coach Clement became the second Sky Bet Championship boss on Thursday to publicly confirm his interest in Wilson, after Bolton’s Neil Lennon did likewise.MK Dons and Wolves are also understood to be among the whole host of clubs monitoring the situation.Wilson has been frustrated by a lack of opportunities in the past year despite making a breakthrough under caretaker Ryan Giggs towards the end of the 2013-14 season. A series of niggling injuries have also stunted his progress.He has played just 17 minutes of first-team football since February and United recognise he needs more competitive games to develop.Wilson came off the bench to score the winning goal for the England Under-21 team against USA U23s in their 1-0 friendly victory at Deepdale on Thursday.

Line for immigration often decades long

first_imgThousands of immigrants qualify to become legal residents because their daughters or sons live in the United States, but the sheer number seeking residency from places like Mexico, China or the Philippines means wait times can run into decades. Unskilled workers also have a tougher go at it, with only about 5,000 work visas for menial labor positions handed out each year amid tens of thousands of applications. Even after waiting decades, applicants must also have a financial sponsor – in the form of an employer or a rich uncle, pass a medical exam and satisfy a number of other tough requirements. For millions of immigrants and would-be-immigrants, the path to citizenship is a maze of confusing laws, daunting wait times and endless bureaucracy. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event “People don’t understand that it’s a lengthy process and there is not always an option for legal immigration, that’s why – there being no legal alternative – people seek the illegal alternative,” said Raul Godinez, past chair of the Southern California Chapter for American Immigration Lawyers Association. As the full Senate prepares to take up immigration reform, pro-immigrant groups are pushing for a law that will loosen up the mounting backlog and speed up the glacial pace at which the immigration system moves for tens of thousands. Opponents say making immigration easier is madness, putting undue strain on the already overtaxed health, welfare and school systems. Whatever reforms are adopted, immigrant attorneys and service organizations expect they will only see more questions from clients baffled by the continuous changes in the system. And even if the number of immigrant employment and family visas, now at 366,000, are tripled, the backlog could extend for years. “The reason we set limits in the first place is because it has an impact on everyone else. Changing it will change the illegality, but it doesn’t change the impact. Immigration affects labor markets and social institutions,” said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform. At Hermandad Mexicana, a nonprofit immigrant service organization in Panorama City, director Gloria Saucedo weekly sees hundreds of clients asking for immigration advice. They begin lining up outside the door by 9 a.m., some want simple translations of English-language documents notifying immigrants to appear in court, others want advice on how to apply for citizenship. Paula Lopez, a 29-year old stocker at Wal-Mart in Panorama City, keeps her eyes closely on Saucedo as she shuffles through her file of documents. Lopez has been waiting since September 1994 for her family sponsorship application to be heard. Although she has a work permit, she cannot leave the country. Her father became a citizen under a massive 1986 amnesty program, but she was not here at the time to apply. Her appointment with immigration is Monday. Lopez says the first thing she will do, if she obtains residency, is visit her sickly grandmother who she last saw when Lopez was just 8. “We talk on the phone all the time,” she said weeping. “The last time I saw her, she was strong, now she is frail… I want my children to see her.” Immigration activists have long contended that piecemeal immigration laws result in families ripped apart. One rule, for instance, bars for 10 years anybody who entered the country illegally and lived here more than a year, from applying for residency. Instead of returning home to see family, immigrants call family to come here, creating even more illegal migration. “At first glance, the objectives of the law might seem good, but when you look at the practical effects, they are destroying families, it’s not,” Godinez said. His client, Leopoldo Olivas, a 52-year old janitor is appealing a deportation order. A judge found that Perez, whose 30-year-old and 14-year old sons are U.S. citizens did not qualify for residency because he had been in the country illegally. The judge determined there was no extreme hardship, even though Olivas was caring for his eldest son’s wife, who is being treated for breast cancer. “I am so worried, there is not anyone else for her to rely on,” Olivas said. “I don’t know what I am going to do. I have been here for 20 years, working with my family.” Rachel Uranga, (818) 713-3741 rachel.uranga@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TOURISM WINS OUT OVER WIND TURBINES IN INISHOWEN – RESIDENTS

first_imgLocal residents today welcomed the decision of the Council to refuse permission to increase the height of two wind turbines on Crockbrack Hill, near Kinnagoe Bay, by 24 % to an overall tip height of 132 meters.The Council’s refusal is based on the new national tourist development the Wild Atlantic Way.The road passing Crockbrack Hill is now identified as a Scenic Driving Section, a fundamental element of the route, providing the visitor with opportunities to see and experience the best land and seascapes along the route. Kinnagoe Bay is a Discovery Point, the third point on the Wild Atlantic Way when you start the route from Derry and the North. Kinnagoe Bay was selected on the basis that it provides an exceptional Wild Atlantic experience.“One of the great joys of living here is the wild, unspoilt countryside and coastline. It is great that this new tourist route is now happening. It is the longest one in the world! People will come to see the wildness of it all. That is why it is called the Wild Atlantic Way not the Industrialised Atlantic Way” said a residents’ spokesperson today.“Now that the roads around Kinnagoe Bay have a special status as part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the Council’s Tourism policy of ‘not permitting development proposals which would detract from the visual quality/amenity on either the approach roads to, or the views to be had from significant tourist attractions (TOU – P – 3)’ becomes more urgent.“It is the natural progression now for the areas on either side of the Wild Atlantic Way to become areas ‘not open for consideration’ for wind farms. We are talking to our local Councillors to start this Variation Process immediately in relation to the rest of Crockbrack Hill. The Wild Atlantic Way is a multi – million Euro, international investment seeking to get tourists to Ireland. We need to protect the route so that they see Ireland at her best” the spokesperson added.  TOURISM WINS OUT OVER WIND TURBINES IN INISHOWEN – RESIDENTS was last modified: March 14th, 2014 by John2Share 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:CampaignDonegal County CouncilKinnegoTurbineWild Atlantic Waylast_img read more
