0Shares0000Thomas Tuchel with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi at the Parc des Princes — the German has signed a deal until 2020 © AFP / Philippe LOPEZPARIS, France, May 21 – Paris Saint-Germain did not waste time turning the page on Unai Emery’s time in charge, and the arrival of the fresh-faced Thomas Tuchel marks the start of a new era.Less than 24 hours after Emery bowed out as the Ligue 1 champions played out a soporific goalless draw in Caen without a host of their biggest names, Tuchel appeared at the Parc des Princes for the first time. The German looked confident and relaxed as he was unveiled to the French media and then photographed on the pitch on a perfect Parisian spring evening.After a year out following his departure from Borussia Dortmund, where he won the 2017 German Cup, the 44-year-old was linked to the Premier League. But he was clearly seduced by the French capital.“This is Paris, it’s magnificent, the city of love, the city of light. It is a romantic city and a city for adventure,” he said.“I would love our supporters to fall in love with the team and that the brightest players play here.”Tuchel spoke mainly in excellent English, but he showed a willingness to speak in French and a grasp of the language that his predecessor never reached in his two years in charge.Emery won seven out of eight domestic trophies in his time at the helm, but his credit expired with Champions League exits against Barcelona and Real Madrid in the last 16.– No promises –Tuchel’s own experience of the highest level is limited, meaning many were surprised by his appointment. And he was not in the mood for making promises.“It’s too early to talk about it,” said the German, who will not officially start work until pre-season training begins in early July.“Of course we have the most exciting players, we are one of the biggest clubs in one of the most exciting cities, and this attracts the best players.“But to be in the end where everybody wants to be, it’s not about talking before the first training session has happened or the first game is played.“I want to have an atmosphere where a Cup game is on the same level as a Champions League game.“You cannot predict the results, so it makes no sense to talk too early, but if you ask me in spring I will tell you very clearly if we are ready or not.”Outgoing PSG coach Unai Emery (R) with Neymar at the club’s title celebrations last week © AFP / FRANCK FIFETuchel has admitted his admiration for Pep Guardiola, although he insisted he would impose his own style in Paris.He will wait anxiously in the hope that UEFA do not complicate his task by imposing sanctions for potential breaches of their Financial Fair Play rules.And he will hope that rumours over Neymar’s possible departure after just one injury-hit season prove to be nothing more than that.In any case, Tuchel is in no doubt his limited track record will not prevent him from settling into a dressing room of stars, from the world’s most expensive player to Kylian Mbappe, Thiago Silva and Marco Verratti.“I am not afraid at all of stars because in my experience they are the hardest workers and know exactly what it takes to be successful.“I am very happy to have the opportunity now to win titles with this kind of team.”At home, PSG’s main rivals next season will be the same.Lyon and Monaco are boosted enormously by qualifying directly for the Champions League group stage, while Marseille will hope to be stronger again after falling just short, coming fourth in the league and losing the Europa League final.It remains to be seen how quickly Tuchel settles, but his side will be clear favourites to dominate in France again next season.He will not be as relaxed as this, though, if he oversees another poor showing in Europe.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

The team at Henry McGinley & Sons inspect their work on the ‘Reflect Yourself’ Art installation, which was completed as part of a project for the St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin.Milford based company Henry McGinley & Sons have just completed a project for the St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin.The installation, entitled Reflect Yourself, was unveiled in the gardens outside the Coach House at Dublin Castle during the St Patrick’s Day Festival. The team at Henry McGinley & Sons worked on fabricating the finished piece, which is 4.5m tall.Created by Barry Sheehan, Head of Design at the Dublin Institute of Technology, the project was designed and detailed by Milford native, James McGinley who works in Dublin for Garland Consultancy. James is the eldest son of Henry and Elizabeth McGinley. Others involved in the project include furniture design students, Richard May and Tomas Barisauskas. Reflect Yourself is a thought-provoking, outdoor installation that explores what specifically prevents us from reflecting on the past or wondering about the future. The project was chosen through an artist submission process to celebrate the year of Irish Design 2015.The project was commissioned after St. Patrick’s Festival and ID2015 came together to re-imagine public spaces in Dublin. Taking the present, and specifically the 2015 Parade theme ‘Celebrate Now’ as inspiration, this exciting collaboration aims to get people to stop and take a moment out of their busy day to think about the city differently.Commenting on the piece, creator Barry Sheehan said: “The theme of this year’s St. Patrick’s Festival is ‘Celebrate Now’ and when we were asked to design an installation, I wondered what would do that? What specifically prevents us from reflecting on the past, or wondering about the future? A mirror.“Reflecting only the here and now, a mirror gives us a snapshot in time. With this installation, we’re creating angled mirrors, with coloured translucent Perspex, so the views change, with unexpected vistas, suffused with light. What’s been particularly great about this project is getting the students working as a team. “DIT doesn’t exist in a vacuum and it’s great to have the students working with partners from industry like Garland Consultancy and Henry McGinley & Sons. Any architect will tell you that getting an idea is easy – but turning it into reality is a long and complex process!”Adding to this, James McGinley said Henry McGinley & Sons is delighted to be involved in the ‘Reflect Yourself’ project and it was wonderful to watch it come to life.“It’s a beautiful piece of work and anyone visiting Dublin from Donegal can check out the installation for themselves in the gardens outside the Coach House at Dublin Castle this week. The piece will then be paraded around the city over the next few months”.Henry McGinley & Sons recently celebrated 22 years in business and is one of the leading suppliers of structural steel and roofing systems in the northwest of Ireland. The company has built a strong reputation for delivering quality solutions to clients across the construction sector.

3 October 2013Broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) remains an integral part of South Africa’s economic policies and transformation, President Jacob Zuma said at the opening of the inaugural B-BBEE Summit in Johannesburg on Thursday.“(B-BBEE) is part of a broader objective of promoting inclusive growth and economic development,” Zuma told the gathering of government, business and labour representatives, adding that the state would continue to intervene and promote transformation.The two-day summit is being hosted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in collaboration with the Presidential B-BBEE Advisory Council, which is chaired by Zuma.Zuma emphasised that economic transformation was not just about big business deals for a few individuals in society. He said BEE policy should be consistently implemented across all parts of the economy to ensure maximum impact on as many South Africans as possible.This year marks a decade since the passing of the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Act. Zuma said there had been successes and challenges over the last 10 years, and that the summit should reflect on what has worked and what has not worked, so as to help build a truly inclusive economy.The South African economy had expanded by 83% since 1994, with total employment having increased by more than 3.5-million, accompanied by growth in the black middle class.According to National Treasury, over R600-billion in BEE transactions had been recorded since 1995.However, the country still faced unacceptable levels of poverty, inequality and unemployment. Income parity, in particular, remained skewed in terms of race: the average African household’s annual income stood at R60 613 compared to that of white households at R365 164.Zuma said there was a need to bridge the gap between the poor and the working class, and to encourage the growth of small businesses that are owned by black people, women, youth and people with disabilities.The DTI’s Black Business Supplier Development Programme has, since its inception in 2010, approved 2 128 applications to the value of R797-million, with a total 1 213 applications approved in support of black-owned SMMEs in 2012/13.The National Empowerment Fund (NEF), which is mandated to grow black economic participation, has approved over 500 transactions worth over R5-billion to black empowered businesses across the country.Zuma said that business training was crucial so that emerging entrepreneurs could gain confidence and expand beyond ownership to become industrialists.In 2011, following the recession caused by the global financial crisis in 2008-09 – which led to a considerable decline in companies’ contributions to BEE – a review of the BEE Act had been initiated to tighten up the law and address challenges such as BEE “fronting”.Zuma condemned the act of fronting, calling it unforgivable. “It distorts our empowerment picture, giving an impression of progress where there is none.”The National Assembly passed the B-BBEE Amendment Bill in June.Source: SAnews.gov.za
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Sucha Singh Langah, who was booked for allegedly raping a woman since 2009, is yet to surrender before the court even though he had promised to do so on Saturday.The Gurdaspur police on Friday lastfiled a case under Sections 376 (rape), 384 (extortion), 420 (cheating) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC against the former Minister, following a complaint by a woman, who alleged that the Akali leader had repeatedly raped her on several occasions since 2009.Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police Jatinder Singh Mand told The Hindu that Mr. Langah had not yet surrendered. Investigation was under way and police teams were looking for the accused. The police said the victim had provided them a video of Mr. Langah allegedly raping her.Political vendettaAsserting that the allegation against him was a “classic case of political vendetta”, Mr. Langah had on Friday said that he has faith in judiciary and would surrender before the court on Saturday.Following the FIR, Mr. Langah, a member of SAD’s core committee, resigned from all party posts. Later, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal accepted his resignation.He also quit the membership of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).Mr. Langah hit out at the Congress party, alleging the case against him was a classic example of political vendetta perpetuated at the most political opportune moment when the byelection of the Gurdaspur parliamentary constituency is just round the corner.“The political witchhunt has started with the announcement of Gurdaspur byelection. I, along with my party colleagues, have met Punjab Director General of Police in August and complained against police officials who had registered false cases against Akali workers and leaders. Since then the State machinery and particularly the district police is hell bent on framing me in false cases in order to please their political bosses,” he said in a statement.“This episode shows the vendetta politics of unknown proportions that the Congress party believes in,” he added.
