first_imgOneNews 13 May 2015If you’ve run out of booze and need to nip out to buy some more you’ll soon be out of luck if you’re in Auckland.Councillors have voted to restrict opening hours for bottle shops and supermarkets selling alcohol in an effort to try and address alcohol related harm in high risk areas.It’s the result of three years’ work and almost three thousand public submissions .“We heard some heart wrenching stories. The medical practitioners from Middlemore Hospital came in with case studies they’d had and it was horrific,” says Councillor Bill Cashmore, the local alcohol police chairperson.Horrific enough to spark a raft of changes in when you can buy booze.Supermarkets and bottle stores must stop selling at 9pm, instead of 11pm. Bars and pubs must by closed by 4am in the city, and 3am elsewhere.There’ll be no new bottle stores for two years in high risk areas while existing stores face higher barriers to getting their licence renewed.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/stock-up-early-auckland-council-gets-tough-buying-booze-after-9pm-6312129last_img read more

Barca New Signing Already Playing Like Messi, Ronaldo

first_imgOne of Barcelona’s newest signing is already drawing comparisons with like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. One room for improvement the analysis found on Trincao’s game is his passing. But based on his overall attributes, the analysis suggests that Trincao could be used as the missing wide man for the Catalans and should he be able to exceed expectations, he may even be used in that Messi role no one has been able to fill in for years. Aside from being compared to Messi, some in soccer also dubbed Trincao as the next Ronaldo. The comparison came earlier in February when Barcelona first announced that they are signing Trincao in summer. Before the lockdown, Trincão was enjoying a productive season for Braga, scoring 7 goals and providing 5 assists to date. He also helped Braga win the Portuguese League Cup this season, its first major title since 2016. The silky left-footed forward drew the eye of several of Europe’s biggest clubs when he led Portugal’s under-19s to victory at the 2018 European Championships, finishing the tournament with the most goals and most assists. In a recent interview with PortuGOAL, Trincao revealed his thoughts about having the opportunity to play with Messi . According to the youngster, playing with “Leo” is dream come true and he’s already starting to gather information about the club. read also:Barca consider swoop for ‘new Ronaldo’ “I’m really looking forward to playing with Messi. When the transfer was completed it was an amazing feeling, a dream come true for me. Abel Ruiz has spoken to me glowingly about what I can expect at Barcelona. He’s told me about the players, the city, everything,” Trincao said. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Francisco Trincao is a 20-year-old forward from Portugal. He was the joint-top scorer at the European Under-19 Championship in 2018 and is highly expected to provide a further attacking option for Barcelona once the 2020-21 season gets under way. In fact, as early as now, Trincao is already being touted as the next Messi. To put Trincao’s case into context, Total Football Analysis dug deeper into his game and revealed that generally speaking, the Portuguese youngster really resembles the playing style of a young Messi. According to the analysis, Trincao, just like Messi, is a highly versatile forward who is most effective when given a free license on either of the flanks. He is, however, “most comfortable as the out-and-out no. 7 over on the right-wing where he can either be a width provider or cut inside to shoot with his preferred left foot.” Though his feats are still far from the Argentine superstar, the analysis noted that Trincao’s dribbling skills, the 1-on-1 danger he possesses when isolated with the defenders and his creativity and ingenuity in insanely limited spaces do make him fairly similar to Messi.

Rodgers: Reds policy bearing fruit

first_imgContrasting methods have made Liverpool and Manchester City title contenders but Reds boss Brendan Rodgers resolutely believes his preferred way of doing things is making the club better for the long term. Press Association Sunday’s opponents spent hundreds of millions on transfers and salaries to bring in top-class talent which allowed City to win the Premier League in 2012 and become regular contenders. Liverpool, under Rodgers, have paid out far less and opted instead for a policy of development which has seen them unexpectedly leap from eighth in May 2012 to top of the table in April 2014. While he does not decry their rivals’ approach, which has been bankrolled by billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour, Rodgers is confident the Liverpool way will succeed just as well. “Both clubs work on different models, we are on different roads in terms of how we want to achieve success,” he said. “We are a club who have an identity and a philosophy of how we want to work and that is built through the club and we will hopefully cultivate and grow it over the years to come. “However this season finishes it will be a great victory for the model we have employed here of player development. “I won’t disrespect what (City) have done because they had a lot of new money come into the club in order to gain success. “They have invested that money wisely in a lot of top players and that has won them the league, the FA Cup and the league cup, so I am sure their supporters won’t be complaining. “Liverpool as a club is very much a development club – development for players and for people and it is a model we are happy with and will give us sustainable success over a long period. “We are looking to build and create something here which gives the young players at the club hope they can pull on the great shirt of Liverpool. “They have seen local boys come through here, a lot of young players getting an opportunity, and they have also seen a model of football which is exciting. “We are a club that is looking to the future and to the youth of our club as well as having a defined philosophy of football. “Hopefully that will provide the vision for years to come.” Sunday’s encounter at Anfield is being billed as a title decider but with four games to follow after that – six in City’s case – Rodgers has tried to play down the importance of one result. City have won just once in 16 Premier League visits to the ground and victory would put Liverpool seven points ahead of their opponents and leave Chelsea – who also have to travel to Merseyside later this month – as their main rivals. “It is a significant game, there is no doubt about that,” said the Reds boss. “It is two teams who have done extremely well this season in their own different ways but there is still a lot of work to do. “Our focus is on the three points because at the end of the day that is all that comes out of the game – even after this game there are still 12 points to play for. “But it is what we work for as coaches and managers. I am sleeping very well but I’ve not dreamt of lifting the title. “Our objective remains to qualify for the Champions League, only then can we think of other things. Once we’ve cleared that hurdle we can look at other objectives.” Fans have mobilised themselves again in preparation and will line Anfield Road in their numbers armed with flags and banners to welcome the team coach before kick-off and Rodgers issued what sounded like a rallying cry to those troops. “We will unleash the supporters this weekend yet again on the opponent,” he said. “Anfield is a special place to play football and a difficult place for teams to come and play. “I sense a real nostalgia about the place, the feel of the old Liverpool, and we will always respect that and it is important it drives us forward in the future.” Part of that history will be remembered on Sunday when the club begin a week of remembrance around the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 fans died. “It gives us great commitment and motivation but we will get chance to commemorate Hillsborough next week (at the annual memorial service),” added Rodgers. “We carry it every day of our lives here: manager, players, supporters. “The victims and the families are with us every day and that is why we work hard to ensure they can have some comfort from seeing their club move forward. “This weekend will be huge for that.” last_img read more

Deila tells Janko door is open

first_img Celtic earlier announced that the 19-year-old right-back would join the club on a four-year contract from Manchester United subject to the final results of a medical. The Switzerland Under-19 international faces competition from Mikael Lustig, Adam Matthews and Darnell Fisher for the right-back spot but Deila believes he can make his mark. Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told new signing Saidy Janko that the path to the first team is open if he can prove himself. Janko did not make a first-team appearance for United after joining from FC Zurich on summer transfer deadline day in 2013, but he played 10 games for Bolton last season after Neil Lennon signed him on loan in February. Speaking after Celtic’s 2-0 friendly win against Den Bosch, Deila said: “He’s a young player who we want to develop. He’s a very talented full-back and I’m really looking forward to seeing him in training. “He has to show himself in training and the road is there if he shows he’s the best. “He can play winger as well but his main position is full-back.” Deila is still looking to add to his summer arrivals of Dedryck Boyata and Janko but he would not comment on Celtic’s pursuit of Dundee United forward Nadir Ciftci. Celtic saw an offer rejected last week with Wigan reported to have moved ahead of them in the race to sign the 23-year-old forward. Deila, whose public pursuit of Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong earned a rebuke from United boss Jackie McNamara in January, said: “I don’t want to comment on any names. I did that before and I don’t think I want to do it again. “We will see. We are working hard on different things but we want to build a team with consistency. We have a lot of consistency in the team and that’s why the players are performing well. The players who are here are the players who will be the most important for us.” Armstrong and Lustig went off 40 minutes into Celtic’s win over the Dutch side at St Mirren Park but their fitness issues were not serious. Deila said: “He (Armstrong) has a dead leg, so that will be okay. Lustig hadn’t played for four months and his groins were a little bit tight. There is nothing to worry about.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Coronavirus Fears Cause Cancellation of Miami’s Chinese New Year Festival

first_imgA popular Chinese New Year Festival event that has drawn thousands of people to a Miami Dade College campus for more than three decades has been canceled.The reason for scrapping the festival, which has been held at the Kendall campus for the past 32 years, was provided in this statement on Friday: “In order to stand with the global family of Asia — especially China, the Asian-American Advisory Board regrets to announce the Chinese Cultural Foundation has decided to cancel the 2020 Chinese New Year Festival.”The announcement urges the public to “Please enjoy and celebrate the Chinese New Year — the Year of the Rat with your loved ones” and to support the 2021 Year of the Ox Chinese New Year Festival in Miami.The Chinese New Year Festival Miami’s Facebook page cites coronavirus as the actual reason for removing the event from this year’s calendar.A post on the page explains, “Due to the worldwide concerns regarding 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and our concern for the welfare and benefit of all our visitors, vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors, the 2020 Festival Committee has canceled the 2020 Chinese New Year Festival.”Peter Liu, the president of the Chinese Cultural Foundation and the festival’s chair, told The Miami Herald that the decision to cancel this year’s event was due to expectations of a drop in attendance.Although the coronavirus was not given as the direct reason for the cancellation, he added that “because of unwarranted fears” the revenue loss from this year’s festival could result in “financial bankruptcy” and possibly lead to the end of the festival.Courtesy: Chinese New Year Festival Miami/FacebookThe event, which includes food vendors and cultural performances, typically draws between 3,000 and 4,000 people for a $10 admission fee.It is staffed by volunteers and small vendors, while festival organizers rent space on the campus for a stage and seating. The professional performers, in addition to police security staff and bathroom facility staffers, also need to be paid.“The festival limps from year to year and that is why financial stability is significant,” Liu says. “We have heard reports from many of our regular attendees that they plan to skip this year.”He estimates that the expected decline in attendance would have been about 20 percent from the normal amount, or about 600 fewer people.Although there have been no reported cases of the coronavirus in Miami, its impact on local businesses and on the cruise industry is being felt.Florida could end up losing as much as $1.75 billion as a result of the virus, with about one-quarter of that amount concentrated in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, according to a Miami Herald report. The viral outbreak that began in China has now infected nearly 35,000 people worldwide, global health authorities said in Beijing.There have been 12 U.S. cases, and one American citizen has died in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the virus.last_img read more
