Manchester United winger Anthony Martial has signed a new five-year contract with the club on deadline day, after months of negotiations and transfer speculation.The Frenchman rejected an extension offer back in October last year, amid widespread reports he was unhappy with his situation at the club under former boss Jose Mourinho.His previous deal was due to expire at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, but United triggered a one-year extension and continued talks over a more permanent arrangement.

Martial has contributed 10 goals and one assist in 25 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils this term and he is one of the players to have directly benefitted from the arrival of caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.After embarking on a nine-match unbeaten streak under the Norwegian, Martial has decided to pledge his long-term future to the club until 2024, in a major boost for the team ahead of a crucial period of fixtures.Speaking after the announcement was made on Thursday, Martial, whose new deal includes an option for a further year, stated: “I am loving my time at this club. From the day I joined I have been made to feel part of the United family and I have been incredibly humbled and overwhelmed by the warmth and love of our fans, who continue to amaze me with their support.“I would like to thank Ole and his coaching staff for their belief in me and for helping me to take my game to the next level. This club is all about winning trophies and I am sure the next piece of silverware is not that far away.”The France international joined United back in 2015 from Monaco for an initial £36 million ($47m) fee and he has since enhanced his reputation as one of the best young players in European football.The 23-year-old attacker has hit 42 goals in 161 games for the club, winning the FA Cup, Europa League and League Cup.Solskjaer also expressed his joy after Martial’s new deal was tied up, praising him as ‘naturally gifted’.“Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with,” said the United head coach. “For a young man, he has a good footballing brain which, when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him. This is the perfect club for Anthony to progress his development as a top-class forward and we are all delighted he has signed a long-term deal.”Martial could be back in action for Solskjaer’s side on Sunday, as they take in a trip to Leicester City.United are now only two points behind Chelsea and Arsenal in the race for a top-four Premier League finish, while also through to the last 16 of the Champions League and fifth round of the FA Cup.

Photo by Kirill ZmurciukIt’s easy for a profitable, established brewery to coast on a reputation built by past successes. Within the ever-evolving craft beer landscape, however, a lack of innovation is a recipe for disaster. That pale ale you made 10 years ago may still be tasty, but today’s craft beer audience is always on the hunt for new flavors and tasting experiences.Perhaps no craft brewery is more well known than Massachusetts’ Samuel Adams. The brewing empire built on the back of Boston Lager has never stopped evolving. From the deep, rich experience that is Utopias to the complexity of Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru to the breadth of the Rebel IPA series, no one can say that Samuel Adams is a one-trick brewery. For fall 2017, the Boston bigwig continues to grow by launching two new Samual Adams fall beers and bringing back several seasonal favorites sure to excite its many fans.Honey Rye Pale Ale is a brand-new release that can be found in the Beers of Fall Variety Pack. The addition of honey enhances the beer’s deep amber color and adds just the right amount of sweetness to balance the spiciness imparted from the rye. The end result is a bright, thirst-quenching beer with a crisp, clean finish.

The hefeweizen-style may not seem like a natural pick for cooler temperatures, but Samuel Adams took the traditional wheat beer base and added warm baking spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. It’s a perfect alternative to the ubiquitous pumpkin ale.The Beers of Fall Variety Pack, available now, also includes bottles of OctoberFest, 20 Pounds of Pumpkin, Maple Red, Black Lager, and (of course) the classic Boston Lager.

zoom Ten North European ports have joined forced to find solutions to make the growing cruise industry greener through a three-year project.The project, which will focus on finding a practical and commercial way to supply cruise ships with green energy, was launched as the cruise ship market is predicted to grow 3.3 percent by 2030, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).Led by the Hamburg Port Authority, EU Interreg project includes Hamburg Cruise Center, Rostock Port, Freeport of Riga Authority, Klaipeda State Seaport Authority, Maritime Institute in Gdansk, and the ports of Bergen, Tallin, Helsinki and Esbjerg.With a budget of EUR 2.9 million, the project has the aim of examining how the ports can help cruise ship operators become greener and more sustainable.“The rapid growth of the cruise industry makes it interesting for the ports, but the industry’s growth poses certain challenges as well, particularly in relation to neighbouring areas. All ports face these same challenges, so the idea is to collaborate on finding solutions. In an ideal world, cruise ships should meet the same standards and rules in every port,” Ingo Fehrs, Senior Adviser Port Strategy of the Hamburg Port Authority, said.A detailed account of ways the ports can help enhance sustainability in the cruise shipping sector is set to be presented at the project’s closing conference in 2019, Fehrs said, adding that the project would look at areas where more regulation is needed.Shortly after the ten ports met at the opening conference in Hamburg on October 27, 2016, the environmental committee of the UN’s International Maritime Organisation (IMO) set the implementation date for the new global sulphur emission regulations to 2020.The new regulations impose stricter requirements on the shipping industry and lower the cap on sulphur content of marine fuels from 3.5 percent to 0.5 percent.

Singapore/New Delhi: A Singapore Airlines flight from Mumbai to Singapore with 263 passengers on board Tuesday received a bomb threat, prompting Singapore Air Force to send two F-16s to escort the aircraft.The flight landed safely at Singapore’s Changi International Airport on Tuesday around 8 am (local time), the airline added. “Singapore Airlines confirms there was a bomb threat concerning SQ423 operating from Mumbai to Singapore. The aircraft arrived in Singapore on March 26, 2019, at about 0800hrs (local time). “There were 263 passengers on board. We are assisting the authorities with their investigations and regret that we are unable to provide further details,” a statement issued by the airline said. The Republic of Singapore Air Force said two F16C/Ds escorted the SIA aeroplane. The RSAF said in a Facebook post that two F-16C/Ds were scrambled to intercept the SIA flight. “Our fighters escorted the airliner till it landed safely at Changi Airport,” it said.

TAIPEI, Taiwan — Consumer electronics magnate Terry Gou is stepping closer to running for president of Taiwan.Gou excluded himself Monday as the opposition Nationalist Party’s candidate for vice-president. Gou is chairman of Foxconn, the world’s largest contract assembler of electronic consumer goods such as Apple’s iPhones.Gou would bring a strongly pro-business and China-friendly platform to what is expected to be a crowded field for next year’s election.The Foxconn Technology chairman, who ranks among Taiwan’s richest people with a fortune estimated by Forbes at $7.8 billion, says the Nationalists should seek their candidate through debates.Incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen has been hampered by low public approval ratings and a diplomatic embargo imposed by China, which claims the island as its own territory.The Associated Press
29 December 2008A United Nations-backed landmine clearing operation in Cyprus is in danger of folding next month before its work in de-mining the buffer zone on the island is complete, risking the lives of the local population. To date, the UN Mine Action Centre programme, formed in November 2004, has released more than 6 million square metres of land and removed over 9,000 mines – 5,666 anti-personnel and 3,497 anti-tank – from the divided Mediterranean island. But this month alone three accidents in the buffer zone, which is 180 kilometres long and covers around three per cent of the surface area of Cyprus, served as a reminder that the agency’s work is not done.“Landmines continue to maim and kill in Cyprus almost 35 years after they were first laid,” said the Programme Manager of the UN Mine Action Centre (MAC), Michael Raine.“Much progress has been made, but the three accidents in December serve as a tragic reminder that de-mining work is not done,” he added.In the first of the accidents a man stepped on a landmine, partially blowing off his right foot and injuring his wife, his four-year-old son and another child. In addition, an experienced bomb disposal expert seriously injured his right hand while attempting to excavate an anti-personnel mine, and a man lost his right foot in the third explosion.“I believe this humanitarian work is of fundamental importance for the future of Cyprus,” Mr. Raine said, calling for financial support for de-mining activities. “It would be very unfortunate to let it lapse because of a lack of money when we are so close to the goal of a mine-free buffer zone.”The current de-mining project was made possible with €9 million (almost $13 million) in funding from the European Union, which is slated to end in January 2009. Some €2 million (almost $3 million) is needed to continue with operations to the end of 2009 and €5 million (around $7 million) to rid the buffer zone of landmines by 2010.Earlier in December, the Security Council extended the UN peacekeeping mission in Cyprus (UNFICYP) – in operation since 1964 after the eruption of intercommunal violence between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities – by six months as fully-fledged negotiations aimed at reunifying the Mediterranean island continued.
He said that was no empirical evidence to support this claim. On the contrary after 25 years the people of the north who lived under the LTTE had no suffrage. But now President’s Rajapaksa’s government has provided them with the opportunity of expressing themselves later this month.During those 25 years the people of the rest of the country had elected four governments and had four presidents. Almost every six months some election is being held in the country allowing the people to express themselves.Moreover at every election in recent years President Rajapaksa’s government has been increasingly endorsed by the public showing their confidence in the government. He said it was the essence of democracy to allow the people to freely express their views. Prof. Peiris said that even where Navi Pillay acknowledges progress and positive developments it is given so grudgingly and belatedly “What we find disturbing is the tone and substance of her report, the lack of fairness and balance.”He said that the government and people of Sri Lanka has had just four years since the end of the war to meet the challenges posed by nearly three decades of conflict. But strangely enough the Human Rights Commissioner has ignored all this evidence before her and touted the claim that Sri Lanka was moving towards authoritarianism.This rejection of empirical evidence was further proof of her bias and prejudice.The Minister said that the prejudice and lack of fair-minded is further shown by her talk of numerous war crimes committed by the government. Previously Pillay mentioned allegations of war crimes. But now it is no longer allegations, but proven fact, according to her.Navi Pillay refers to the intimidating presence of the military in the north and the fear of the people and women there.Rejecting this out of hand, he said it is pity that the High Commissioner had not read the reports produced by UN officials in Colombo who belie this claim having themselves interviewed nearly 200 people, chosen by the UN itself, 90% of who said they were comfortable with living there.“Why does she ignore this evidence produced by the UN itself. What is the justification for ignoring this? This is again a classic example of pre-judgment.” he said.Answering other media questions, the minister said that he expected countries to be objective when viewing Sri Lanka and was critical of the voting patterns in the UN Human Rights Council which did not seem to be based on the merits of the case.The minister said that he was not criticising the Human Rights Commissioner out of rancour but of deep sadness as he found that her report lacked the fairness, open-mindedness and balance that was expected of her.Several journalists from the print and electronic media, news agencies and think tanks in the UK attended the briefing which was moderated by Sri Lankan High Commissioner to the United Kingdom H.E. Dr Chris Nonis. (Colombo Gazette) The report on the human rights situation in Sri Lanka by United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights -Navi Pillay was “unfair, wrong and biased” said the Minister for External Affairs G.L Peiris . He was addressing a press conference at the Sri Lankan High Commission in London on Monday.The minister said that the UN High Commissioner was invited by the Sri Lanka Government 2 1/2 years ago to come and see for herself the developments in Sri Lanka. This was because Sri Lanka had nothing to hide. Prof. Peiris was particularly hard on the Human Rights Commissioner for claiming that Sri Lanka was moving towards authoritarianism. Enumerating the steps taken by the government to settle 296,000 persons, provide them with infrastructure on which the government has spent a record $ 3billion, provide them with new lives in such a short time is an achievement that few countries have emulated, the Minister said.But to dismiss these achievement as just physical reconstruction as Navi Pillay has done, is simply not the case.“No discerning observer could say this,” the minister said adding that her continuous assertions were prejudicial judged by any fair standard. “Yet the report she has just produced is indicative of a prejudiced mind and in no way shows the fairness and open-mindedness of an official undertaking such a mission, the longest she has spent in any one country,” the Sri Lankan High Commission in London qouted the Minister as saying.
MONTREAL — Quebec paint manufacturers are seizing on the American-owned Sico paint company’s move to Ontario from Quebec by launching marketing campaigns and tapping into renewed sensitivity around local ownership after a string of closures and layoffs.Sico, an 81-year-old company bought by American giant PPG Industries Inc. in 2013, said last week it plans to close its plant in Quebec City and distribution centre in the Montreal area next September, eliminating 125 jobs.Quebec Premier Francois Legault and Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume have both invoked the idea of a Sico boycott.Denalt Paints, whose 60 employees make products under various brand names in Montreal, is buying ad slots on five radio stations around the province on top of a web and billboard campaign. Sales director Nicholas Le Marchand says pride in regional wares and “a perfect storm” of foreign purchases and local shutdowns is fostering more demand for Quebec products.Patrick Rodrigue, director of operations at the Laval-based Micca Paint Inc., says he is revving up for a multi-platform ad push to capitalize on the “opportunity.” Nearby, MF Paints — which just hired a chemist laid off from Sico — aims to more than double its Quebec market share to 20 per cent after being “swamped” with calls by hardware and building materials stores.Lowe’s Companies Inc. announced this month it will close 31 stores and other locations in Canada, including nine Rona outlets in Quebec, two years after acquiring the Montreal-area-based retailer. Three days later on Nov. 8, Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. announced it will lay off 5,000 workers company-wide, including 2,500 in Quebec, and sell off two units.Companies in this story: (TSX:BBD.B)
“Yesterday’s massive attack on civilians shows that force continues to be used indiscriminately in the conflict in Sri Lanka,” UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland said in a statement. “I call upon all parties to the conflict to ensure the protection of civilians under all circumstances in accordance with International Humanitarian Law,” he added.The scene of the bombardment is a narrow peninsula in eastern Sri Lanka controlled by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), hosting 30,000 IDPs who left their homes in Trincomalee province due to the fighting in August. “The people trapped in this camp are terrified and feel that they are completely at the mercy of others,” said the Special Advisor on Sri Lanka to the UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Allan Rock.“The time has come for all parties to respect the basic human rights of these people, which are simply not being observed at the moment,” he added. After his visit to the camp today, Mr. Rock described it as a “shocking sight.”

Russia has today taken an important step towards integrating its mining capital structure with the major international markets by joining CRIRSCO, the international committee which co-ordinates public reporting standards for exploration results, mineral resources, and mineral reserves. The Russian national code (the NAEN Code) has been developed by the Society of Experts on Mineral Resources (OERN, a component body of NAEN), in close co-operation with the State Commission on Reserves (GKZ) and with members of CRIRSCO.The NAEN Code is modelled very closely upon the CRIRSCO Public Reporting Template and is issued as a bilingual document in Russian and English. This reporting standard is intended for use principally by Russian companies for independent estimation of their mineral assets, and listing on stock exchanges nationally as well as internationally. Its compatibility with other CRIRSCO-aligned reporting standards will encourage rapid acceptance of the Code around the world.At the same time, the definition of the Competent Person, required in all CRIRSCO codes, will allow for the first time full integration of Russian professional geoscientists into the international geological community, with recognition of OERN as a professional organisation in its own right. NAEN (OERN) has for some years been a member of the European Federation of Geologists, through which its members have been able to receive ‘European geologist’ status, but following CRIRSCO membership, recognition will be extended to all professional members of OERN.This is an important step for CRIRSCO, whose member organisations define the standards for reporting exploration results, mineral reserves and resources for the world’s major mining capital markets. Although Russia will continue to use its governmental mineral resources reporting system, a ‘harmonisation’ exercise from 2006 to 2010 yielded a set of guidelines which, used in conjunction with the new NAEN code, will make it much more straightforward for Russian mining companies of all sizes to list on the world’s capital markets as well as increase the investment attractiveness of Russian mineral resources to international capital.
