New Report Details What Happened With Urban Meyer, Agent

first_imgohio state head coach urban meyer on the sidelineCOLLEGE PARK, MD – NOVEMBER 17: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes reacts after a play against the Maryland Terrapins during the second half at Capital One Field on November 17, 2018 in College Park, Maryland. (Photo by Will Newton/Getty Images)Earlier this week, Ohio State held a press conference to announce head football coach Urban Meyer will retire following the team’s Rose Bowl game against Washington. Former offensive coordinator Ryan Day will take over as the team’s new head coach entering the 2019 season.Immediately following the news, Meyer’s former players and Buckeyes fans around the country flooded social media with messages for the head coach. While most were positive, there remains a question about Meyer’s legacy at Ohio State following his three-game suspension from earlier in the season.Ohio State suspended Meyer after Brett McMurphy reported the coach failed to remove Zach Smith from his coaching staff despite claims of abuse by Smith’s wife. Meyer had a combative relationship with the media leading up to the suspension.On Wednesday morning, Dan Le Batard revealed he and Meyer shared the same agent – though that agent bailed on Meyer when the Ohio State coach failed to heed his advice.“During that mess, my agent bailed — my agent got out of that because he wasn’t taking advice. He was just doing the same thing he always does — being smug, arrogant Urban Meyer. He got into this mess because he taunted the media with arrogance about that entire incident. That’s how it started, and people started following up.”Clearly a divide developed between Meyer and former agent Trace Armstrong. Regardless, Meyer leaves Ohio State as one of the most-accomplished coaches in college football.The impact of the Zach Smith saga on his legacy remains to be seen.[The Big Lead]last_img read more

Bog Walk High Renamed in Honour of Late Enid Bennett

first_img Bog Walk High School in St. Catherine has been renamed the Enid Bennett High School in honour of the late former State Minister and daughter of the parish, who was instrumental in the establishment of the institution.Ms. Bennett played a key role in securing the funds and land for the construction of the school, along with Tacius Golding High School and Lucky Valley Primary School in the 1970s under the ‘New Deal in Education’ project.Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, in his address at the renaming ceremony on the grounds of the institution on Tuesday (June 19), hailed Ms. Bennett as an exceptional servant of the people.“She had an outstanding record in community service and in (her) political life… and, therefore, this is a fitting opportunity for us to recognise her contribution to the nation,” he said.He added that “it is delightful because not only do we have an opportunity to recognise the role played by a humble Jamaican who was passionate about the welfare of the less privileged in society but also to celebrate the significant growth and progress of this school since its founding in the 1970s”.Principal, Patrick Phillips, said the school board, administration, teachers, students and other stakeholders welcome the name change.He informed that the uniform for the fifth-form students will be changed at the start of the upcoming new school year.“Ordinarily, the students who are moving from grade 10 to grade 11 would not change uniform; however, with the new name, we have to have a new look, so we are going to change the uniform,” Mr. Phillips said.Ms. Bennett’s grand-niece, Belinda-Gae Orrett, thanked the Government and the school’s administration, noting that “we the members of her family accept this honour with pride and humility”.She said that one of her late grand-aunt’s proudest achievements was her role in the establishment of the school “to give the children a ladder whereby they can climb out of poverty. We are happy that her work has been recognised. We are happy because it means her sterling service will never be forgotten”.Enid Bennett was born in Linstead on May 18, 1931. She started her education at Linstead Primary School and later attended St. Helen Commercial School, where she qualified as a stenographer.She was elected Councillor for the Sligoville division and later Member of Parliament for Central St. Catherine, before moving to represent St. Catherine West Central.She served as Minister of State in the Ministry of Local Government between 1980 and 1982, and Minister of State in the Ministry of Labour and Social Security between 1982 and 1989. She was awarded the country’s fourth-highest honour, the Order of Jamaica, in 2012.Ms. Bennett is hailed as a trailblazing politician, serving as Member of Parliament for 30 continuous years until her retirement in 1997 and setting a record as a female legislator in the House of Representatives.Throughout her years of service in politics, she aimed to transform the lives of citizens and was instrumental in establishing community centres in Buxton Town and Point Hill, improving the West Central St. Catherine road network and bringing electricity to several communities in the constituency.Ms. Bennett died on December 22, 2017 at age 86 after a brief illness.Bog Walk Junior Secondary first opened its doors on September 14, 1971 to 680 students, 16 teachers, three administrative staff members and seven ancillary staff workers. The school’s name has changed over the years to Bog Walk Secondary School, Bog Walk Comprehensive High School and Bog Walk High School. Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, in his address at the renaming ceremony on the grounds of the institution on Tuesday (June 19), hailed Ms. Bennett as an exceptional servant of the people.

India signs 5 billion deal for Russian air defence systems

first_imgNEW DELHI – India signed a $5 billion deal to buy five Russian S-400 air defence systems on Friday despite a looming threat of U.S. sanctions on countries that trade with Russia’s defence and intelligence sectors.The deal was signed in New Delhi during a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss nuclear energy, space exploration and trade.India has requested that the U.S. grant it a waiver for the deal from sanctions prescribed by the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, a U.S. law passed in August 2017 that is intended to punish Russia for its annexation of Crimea and alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.The U.S. did not spare China from sanctions last month for purchasing its own Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile systems and fighter jets.If the U.S. does impose sanctions on India, it is unclear how India could pay Russia for the military equipment, since the law bars dollar-denominated financial transactions.Vladimir Sotnikov, a foreign affairs expert at an independent research institute in Moscow, believes India could make the payment in a mixture of rupees and dollars to try to circumvent the sanctions.“I do not think that India would succumb to U.S. pressure over the purchasing of the armaments from Russia,” he said. “India has a very sophisticated policy of separating the relationship between India and the U.S. and India and the Russian Federation. And India is in a good negotiating position right now.”The National Security Council at the White House said in a statement that the Trump administration urges all “of our allies and partners to forgo transactions with Russia that would trigger sanctions” under the act, known as CAATSA.“The administration has indicated that a focus area for the implementation of CAATSA Section 231 is new or qualitative upgrades in capability – including the S-400 air and missile defence system. Our recent action to sanction a Chinese government entity for an S-400 delivery underscores the seriousness of our resolve on this issue.”Officials with India’s external affairs and defence ministries confirmed the deal was signed after Putin and Modi made no reference to it during a news conference following their talks.An 11-page joint statement made only passing mention, saying that “the two sides welcomed the conclusion of the contract.”The deal will likely bolster the close relationship between India and Russia that dates back to the Cold War, when the U.S. tilted toward Pakistan, India’s neighbour and archrival. But it is also likely to strain ties with Washington.India is the world’s largest importer of military hardware, according to Mumbai-based think-tank Gateway House, and has depended on Russia for political support as well as billions of dollars in military hardware. Nearly 70 per cent of India’s present-day defence equipment was procured from Russia, according to India’s Defence Ministry.India’s acquisition of the S-400 long-range missile systems has been considered critical to countering a perceived threat from China, which is increasingly making economic inroads throughout South Asia, India’s traditional sphere of influence, according to military experts.“It gives the capability to destroy targets inside another country. It’s a very important capability,” said retired Indian air force Air Marshal Nirdosh Tyagi.India has also developed closer defence ties to the U.S. in recent years with joint military drills and defence sales.India has signed more than $15 billion in U.S. defence contracts since 2008, including for C-130J and C-17 transport aircraft, P-8I maritime patrol aircraft, Harpoon missiles and Apache and Chinook helicopters.___Associated Press writer Deb Riechmann in Washington, DC, contributed to this report.last_img read more

Royal Bank CEOs pay rises one per cent to 127 million last

Royal Bank CEO’s pay rises one per cent to $12.7 million last year TORONTO – Royal Bank (TSX:RY) chief executive Gord Nixon received a pay increase of about one per cent in 2013, his last full year in the top job at the bank.Nixon was paid $12.7 million last year, up from the $12.6 million what he made in 2012.The details of key executive’s pay were outlined bank’s annual disclosure released Friday.Overall, Royal Bank’s top-five executive leadership received a seven per cent increase in compensation to nearly $47.7 million.The bank earned a record $8.4 billion for the year, an increase of 12 per cent over 2012, as it improved results in its retail banking operations, wealth management and capital markets divisions.Nixon retires on Aug. 1 when he hands over the chief executive mantle to Dave McKay, the bank’s head of personal and commercial banking.Royal Bank’s management proxy circular showed Nixon’s base salary held steady at $1.5 million for the year, the same as 2012.He also received $1.65 million in stock- and option-based awards, a $2.93-million cash bonus and another $6.65 million in share-based awards and other compensation.That compared with $1.65 in stock- and option-based award, a cash bonus of $2.85 million and $6.65 million in share-based awards and other compensation in 2012.The value of Nixon’s pension earned for 2013 was $1.3 million, up from nearly $1.1 million in 2012.Of the other executives, chief financial officer Janice Fukakusa received the biggest pay increase of 19 per cent to $5.6 million. by The Canadian Press Posted Jan 31, 2014 11:15 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Info session to focus on student loan repayment

Brock University is taking a proactive approach to ensure students are prepared when it comes time to repay their school loans.A representative from the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC), through which all Canadian student loans are repaid, will be on campus Monday, March 27 to answer questions about the repayment process.The informal information session will take place at a booth set up in Market Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be one-on-one availability to discuss individual situations.“It’s directed toward graduating students, but the representative can answer questions regarding all student loans,” said Patti Latham-Malton, Brock’s Manager of Student Financial Services and Accounts Receivable.More than half of Brock’s students use OSAP at some point during their academic career.“This affects a very large number of students on campus,” Latham-Malton said. “The majority of students are going to have a loan that needs to be repaid when they graduate Brock. I think it’s really important that they understand what the obligation is.”Latham-Malton plans to invite NSLSC representatives to campus several times each year in order to reach as many students as possible.“Part of my mandate is to try and make Brock students more financially literate, so things don’t sneak up on them,” she said.“The information about repayment is there, but students have to look for it. You need to want to know about the process. I would like to make it easier for them to know.”She encouraged students, regardless of the year they’re in, to become informed about their loan requirements and to become budget conscious.“If we can get people at the beginning understanding what their financial picture looks like, they won’t find themselves in a situation where they have to potentially leave school because they’ve run out of money in year three,” Latham-Malton said.“I want them to understand what they have to do by the end of year one in order to make it to year four.”For many students, education is the first and largest investment they make in themselves, she said.“I want them to treat it like an investment.”For anyone unable to attend Monday’s session, online tutorials are available through the NSLSC. More information about loan repayment is available at brocku.ca/safa/osap-repayment. read more

Chelsea Finally Publicly Addresses Racial Allegations

Chelsea finally addressed the racial abuse allegations against referee Mark Clattenburg on Tuesday, insisting there was no misinterpretation that players heard Clattenburg use the word “monkey” during a Premier League match against Manchester United.Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck opted to end the public silence despite an ongoing investigation by the English Football Association.Buck said he had an obligation to report the allegations after black midfielders John Obi Mikel and Ramires said they heard the derogatory word used.“Suppose we had tried to sweep this under the rug and said to the various players, `Look, it’s not a big deal and the press are going to be all over us, maybe you want to reconsider,”‘ Buck said in an interview with the London Evening Standard. “If that had leaked out, we would’ve really been crucified.”Chelsea has received quite a bit of criticism filing a complaint with the EFA while still backing captain John Terry, who served a four-match ban for using racially offensive remarks to Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand last year.Buck attempted to point the finger at the press for trying to tie both incidents together in similarity.“The press seem to juxtapose `our support’ of John Terry and what’s going on here, and looking at us as being a bit hypocritical,” Buck said. “We have to divorce the John Terry situation from this. From our perspective, the latest situation was pretty straightforward.”Buck feels that the reaction that the club has received has been “very unfair” and they were not interested in any type of retaliation against Clattenburg or anyone else.Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager, has been pretty straightforward in criticizing the complaint against Clattenburg. He doesn’t believe the allegations made by Chelsea. United went on to win the match 3-2 with a goal from Javier Hernandez after Chelsea dup Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres had been sent off.Buck remains firm that the allegations are not false, despite suggestions that the players may have misheard Clattenburg.“I spoke to the players involved, either because they were allegedly the recipient of that abuse or had heard it, three separate times,” the American lawyer said. “I asked them if they could be mistaken. I asked them if they might have heard `Mikel’ instead of `monkey.’ I thought I had covered that base.”Clattenburg has yet to publicly respond to the allegations, but can rest a little easier knowing that he is no longer being investigated by the police due to lack of evidence. The Society of Black Lawyers sparked the probe by the Metropolitan Police, but neither Chelsea nor their players approached the police.Clattenburg resumed training Monday with other topflight officials, but has not refereed since the accusations.

Cyprus clears cannabinoids for medical use – report

first_imgA North American-based company specialising in medical cannabis research and production, announced on Thursday that it was cleared for distribution of cannabinoid formulations for patients in Cyprus.According to an announcement on BusinessWire, the company, Tilray, said its cannabinoid products have cleared for distribution in Cyprus after it had received necessary approvals in Canada and Cyprus.“We are proud to be able to offer patients access to high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis products in Cyprus,” chairman Brendan Kennedy said.The company said it is working with Cyprus’ health ministry “to import and distribute Tilray Drops, a medical cannabis extract product, at pharmacies and healthcare facilities throughout the country to patients with advanced cases of cancer who have authorization to access medical cannabis products”.The health ministry had said earlier in the year that it was in consultation with companies for the supply of cannabis oil to be administered to cancer patients, but it was not announced whether they had reached a deal with any providers.Tilray describes itself as a global leader in medical cannabis research and production dedicated to advancing the science, safety, and efficacy of medical cannabis and cannabinoids.The company said that it operates “one of the largest and most sophisticated federally licensed medical cannabis cultivation facilities in the world, offering a range of products to patients, physicians, pharmacies, governments, hospitals and researchers in Australia, Canada, the European Union and Latin America”.It added that in 2016, Tilray was the first company to legally export medical cannabis products from North America to the European Union and Australia. The company currently supplies pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis products – including dried whole flower and extract formulations – to tens of thousands of patients, physicians, pharmacies, hospitals, governments and researchers around the world for commercial, compassionate access and research purposes.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
