Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s a bit sad, especially when you’re seeing Pierre running and he’s so fast that we knew he was going to get there, but I guess it was a smart challenge from Mathieu, but it was unfortunate for us and we were unable to get the goal.”While also talking about Wolves at the weekend and aiming to finish top of the group, Iwobi concluded:“We will go again and start analysing Wolves and that’s not going to be an easy game because they’ve been doing well this season, so onto the next one.”last_img read more

first_imgArsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat holds Ousmane Dembele in a high regard, amid the uncertainty surrounding his Barcelona futureThe 21-year-old forward has struggled to make an impact at Camp Nou following his €105m transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.And now Dembele’s troubles at Barcelona have been brought into the spotlight amid reports of an uneasy relationship with manager Ernesto Valverde.Due to this, Dembele has been linked with a January move to Arsenal with Barcelona legend Rivaldo suggesting that the Frenchman is trying to force an exit.Now Mislintat, who helped recruit Dembele to Dortmund while he worked at the German club, has done little to deny these reports.“I saw him, he had not even played for Stade Rennes in the first team,” Mislintat told Zeit.“I bet he did not know which foot he used in certain situations because he just did not think about it.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

If so, the council’s vote to send it to voters may also have been illegal.Related Link: What’s in a name? Why SDSU West’s title may violate education codesWhy has this come up now? Sherman said it came up in a conversation with a friend who dealt with similar issues at UCSD. His job was to reign in people illegally using the UCSD name.The title of the initiative reads “SDSU West Campus Research Center, Stadium and River Park initiative.”Sherman said using the SDSU initials is a violation of the education code.” … which says nobody without permission shall use San Diego State, San Diego State University, SDSU for any political fundraising,” Sherman said.Kim Kilkenney is with the Friends of San Diego State, which sponsored the initiative. He had just come from an event where he and Sherman separately addressed the Lincoln Club.“The material that he passed out has San Diego State’s logo and San Diego State’s name on political material. Are we suggesting this is illegal? No, because it’s a silly issue,” Kilkenney said.Sherman also said the initiative sponsors are using the name to raise funds, and that may be a campaign violation. He sent a letter to the city attorney asking for a legal opinion.He said the city, those who circulated the petition, and those who donated funds may be subject to fines under government codes.Related Link: Former city attorney talks about SDSU West initiative“It says anybody who is guilty of this is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable up to a $1,000 fine, so does that mean everybody who signed is guilty of a misdemeanor anybody who has donated?” Sherman asked.“Our attorneys have looked at his letter and have concluded that it’s a non-issue. … Our attorneys are comfortable with the title and the name of our steering committee,” Kilkenney said. “It’s a distraction. He’d rather attack our campaign on silly issues than talk about the merits, and the merits are how best to use that site.”Sherman goes on to say using the SDSU initiatives is misleading to voters because it implies it’s a San Diego State initiative, not a citizens initiative.Kilkenney said this is of no concern to voters.“What they’re concerned about is how the city of San Diego disposes of one of its most valuable assets,” he said.Then why not simply remove the SDSU name from the title?“Our initiative is filed. It’s a done deal, so that’s not an option,” Kilkenney said. Is the SDSU West initiative illegal?

This project is different.Evergreen Habitat board President Susan Riley said all the money will come from donations. She said Kaiser-Permanente has donated $8,500 and philanthropist Ed Lynch gave $5,000, but two-thirds of the costs still must be covered.“We have to go out and get this money, and we need help,” Riley said.The 1,170-square-foot house will have a Cape Cod design and will sit on a lot donated by the city of Vancouver.When they call it a “Women Build” project, they mean it. Many volunteers took classes at Lowe’s, which supports “Women Build” projects.The architects are Sharon Manley of Manley Architects and Susan Mangin, who has her own firm. The interior designer is Andrea J. Little. The structural engineer is Anne Anderson.

first_imgOLYMPIA — Democratic businessman Denny Heck says he is guardedly hopeful the political gridlock he campaigned against can be unlocked.Heck, who grew up in Vancouver, lost to Jaime Herrera Beutler in 2010 in a 3rd District race. On Nov. 6, he won a resounding victory in his campaign for Congress in Washington’s newly created 10th District, capturing more than 58 percent of the vote against Republican Dick Muri of Steilacoom.“I think every Congress is mostly colored in its personality by its incoming class,” Heck said in an interview after his election. “Two years ago, it was the Tea Party. (This time) I think it’s going to be a bunch of people of both political parties — like me — who have talked about moving the economy and sitting down and breaking gridlock.“There is a pent-up hunger in America for problem-solving. There really is.”Whatever happens, Heck is wasting no time getting ready to take the job in January. On Friday, he named his campaign manager, Hart Edmonson, as his chief of staff. Jami Burgess, a Tacoma native and a graduate of Stadium High School, will serve as his No. 2. Both have worked for retiring U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, and Burgess has a background in military issues.Heck, whose election means Washington state will have six Democrats and four Republicans in the U.S. House, flies to Washington, D.C., this week for his first week of orientation and likely meetings with members of the Northwest delegation. He already has met with veteran U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, D-Bellevue, who has talked about the need for higher taxes, and Rep.-elect Suzan DelBene, the Democrat who last week won the 1st District seat vacated by newly elected Gov. Jay Inslee.Heck’s trip coincides with Congress returning to work Tuesday to deal with looming tax increases and spending cuts dubbed “the fiscal cliff.”But Heck will be able only to watch from the distance.“It’s the members of the lame-duck (Congress) that are going to take the issue up,” Heck said. “It would be unconscionable to fail to act and thereby plunge us into another recession.”last_img read more

first_imgThe deadlock between union dockworkers and United Grain Corp. found another boiling point Thursday as both parties clashed over the use of Port of Vancouver property, a morning incident that halted all work at the port for an hour and stirred a fresh round of accusations.The argument, involving an unknown number of people near United Grain’s export terminal, centered on who had the right to use a bollard — located on port-owned property — to tie down and release vessels calling on the port.Port officials intervened in the matter, asking the company and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union to calm down and to work on a solution that will suit everybody involved, said Theresa Wagner, communications manager for the port. The parties agreed. “We’re just working through it right now,” Wagner said.No one was cited or arrested, and no other problems cropped up, according to port and Vancouver police officials. However, a lock on a gate involved in the incident was cut. “We know that a lock was cut,” Wagner said. “We aren’t in a place right now to say who did it.”The Thursday morning skirmish underscored the ongoing tension surrounding United Grain’s Feb. 27 decision to lock out 44 union dockworkers. The decision, which the company made after alleging a union official sabotaged equipment and saying it fired the person, followed a months-long disagreement between the two parties over the terms of a new labor contract.last_img read more

first_imgYAKIMA — Marijuana could be grown outdoors in the sunshine — no grow lights or greenhouses required — under draft rules for Washington state’s new marijuana industry approved Wednesday.The rules, approved by the Washington State Liquor Control Board during a meeting in Olympia, establish regulations for pot producers, processors and retailers and set the stage for legal recreational marijuana use to begin early next year.The decision to allow outdoor grows also increases the potential for pot as a crop in Washington’s sunny side east of the Cascade Range, where irrigated fields of apples, hops and wine grapes dot the landscape, though most agriculture groups are discouraging longtime farmers from growing it.The Liquor Control Board released preliminary draft rules in late May after board staff members spent long hours visiting marijuana grow houses and studying the science of pot.Four public hearings on Wednesday’s proposed rules, which included several key changes, will be held across the state Aug. 6-8. They will be in the Seattle area, Olympia, Ellensburg and Spokane, with exact dates and times to be determined.last_img read more

first_imgLess than half (46%) of respondents believe employers have a duty of care to the health of their staff, down from 95% in 2009, according to research by leadership development firm Morgan Redwood.Of the 250 respondents to its Wellbeing and business performance report 83% believe that business performance and employee wellbeing are connected.The study also found:More than half (57%) of respondents think that business performance and staff wellbeing are ‘quite connected’, while 26% say the two are ‘very closely connected’.Just 7% believe that there is no connection between employee wellbeing and business performance.Respondents rank helping staff to achieve a better work-life balance in tenth place on the list of human resourcing (HR) priorities, with 6% citing it as a key aspect of their HR strategy.Employee wellbeing ranks in twelfth place, with less than 6% naming it as a key priority.Respondents list attracting better talent to the organisation, lowering staff turnover and reducing staff costs as the top three priorities, respectively.Janice Haddon (pictured), managing director of Morgan Redwood, said: “The latest findings really do indicate a startling shift in employer opinion. A swing from 95% to 46% is a huge difference. What has caused such a sea change?“In 2014, the CIPD [Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development] reported that 40% of employers are seeing a rise in stress-related absence and reported mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, so the fact that [organisations] are less inclined to see wellbeing as within their remit of responsibility is perplexing.“Perhaps employers are putting recruitment ahead of the need to tend to existing employee needs, which means they’ve taken their eye off the wellbeing ball. Businesses need to remember that looking after employees is just as important as striving for new business and growth.“Burnt out, poorly treated employees will end up becoming detrimental in the long run, so employers need to ensure they allocate sufficient resource to cater to the full spectrum of employee needs.”last_img read more
