0Shares0000Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFELONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 4 – Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte hopes to finalise a deal for Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku in the coming days.The Italian club have been chasing Lukaku during the transfer window and have reportedly returned with a fresh bid of around £65 million (Sh8bn) as they try and get the deal over the line. The Belgium striker has not played a single minute of United’s pre-season campaign and Conte is hopeful he can bring the 26-year-old to the San Siro.“We continue to work on it in the best possible way,” he said after his side drew 1-1 at Tottenham in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.“I understand there are some gaps that need to be filled but at the moment I am very hopeful that this will happen.“At the same time I’m working with a great group of players that gives me lots of satisfaction.”A complication to Inter’s chase of the former Everton striker is a reported swap deal between United and Juventus that could see Argentina attacker Paulo Dybala move to Old Trafford in exchange for Lukaku.“Honestly I can’t know, I don’t know,” the former Chelsea boss said. “I’m reading (about) this swap in the papers.“For sure Lukaku, we are talking about a good player, a striker that in the past I tried to buy when I was Chelsea’s coach.“We’re talking about two big clubs, Juventus and Inter Milan, but honestly I don’t know. Only my way is to work with this group of players, to try to improve this group and instil the right mentality.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, on a speaking tour on behalf of his environmental organization, appealed today to Los Angeles leaders to join in his call for an international conference to address issues as varied as global warming and clean water. “Billions of people are threatened by not having quality water,” Gorbachev said through a translator after a meeting with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “It should be the right of every citizen to have a guarantee of clean, safe water.” Villaraigosa and City Council President Eric Garcetti said Gorbachev and the organization he founded, Global Green, have helped the city as it seeks to improve its environment. “I have visited Los Angeles on many occasions and it is a great city that is making a significant contribution,” Gorbachev said. The former Soviet leader also won support from the council in asking the G-8 nations to establish an international panel to look at environmental issues and take steps to reduce greenhouse gases. Villaraigosa told Gorbachev that he is pushing a broad agenda to make the city more environmentally friendly. Among his plans are planting a million trees, converting the city’s vehicle fleet to alternative fuels, restoring the Los Angeles River, reducing landfill use while promoting recycling and greater use of renewable energy. Garcetti also praised Gorbachev for reaching out to local leaders. “Only together can we make a difference, one city at a time,” Garcetti said. Aides to Gorbachev said he has several appearances planned on the West Coast to speak on international matters as well as environmental issues. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA CLARA — Mike McGlinchey fondly recalls a “friendly” basketball game before his junior year in high school, when, already at 6-foot-8, he dunked on a pro athlete.It was his cousin, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Sorry, no proof a viral-video exits.“That’s kind of the cool thing about it, that it’s just folklore, because there were no cameras,” McGlinchey, the 49ers right tackle, said Wednesday, ahead of facing his cousin and the Falcons on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium.San Francisco …
The person that delivers your mail pulls up to your house. They find your mail, and they put it in your mailbox. Then they drive to the next house. They won’t return to your house with more mail for 24 hours.You want to know what they left in your mailbox. You rush out to the street and open the box, and you anxiously bring the mail inside. You hope there is a check in the mail. You hope there is something interesting or worthwhile. Instead, there are two bills and five pieces of junk mail, nothing worthwhile.Two minutes later, the mailperson backs up their truck. They forgot something. They open your mailbox and place an envelope inside. You rush out to see what treasure awaits you. Another bill. Nothing novel, but at least your curiosity has been served.The mail is delivered once a day. You only have to open the box and process your mail once a day. Most of what shows up isn’t worth your time or attention. A good deal of it is routine maintenance, things like bills and statements that, while important, aren’t anything that needs your attention now. Having learned this over time, you are not so enthusiastic about physical mail anymore.Right NowImagine another scenario. Imagine that your mail delivery person parks their truck right in front of your mailbox. About once every 10 minutes, the mail carrier opens your mailbox and inserts one new envelope. Over the course of an hour, you receive 6 new pieces of mail. Would you walk to the mailbox every ten minutes to retrieve your mail, knowing that there isn’t likely to be anything that needs your attention there? Or would you wait a couple of hours while you do you work before you go and pick up your mail.This second scenario is exactly how email works. When you leave your inbox or web browser open, you are inviting interruptions. You are allowing yourself to be distracted, knowing that most of what comes into your inbox doesn’t require your attention, and knowing that your most important work isn’t going to be found in your inbox.The “right now” nature of email is that everything that enters your inbox is treated as being equally important. That newsletter subscription you keep meaning to unsubscribe from is at the very top of your list, prominently on display as the very first thing you have to look at. Beneath that are two news alerts you subscribed to. Now you know the Federal Reserve didn’t raise interest rates, and some team from Cleveland is getting things done. The fourth email in your list is a “for your information” email from a coworker who wants to make sure everyone on the distribution chain is aware that there is “no change” on the status of a project.Right now, you could be doing meaningful work. Right now, you could be face-to-face with a client, a prospect, or a co-worker getting things done. Right now you could be making phone calls to people who need your help or people who could help you. Most of the results you produce aren’t going to be produced in your inbox.Turn your browser off. Close your inbox. Do meaningful work for 90 minutes. Take 15 minutes to stand up, stretch, drink some water, and then check your email to see if anything needs your attention. This means you will check your email 4 times over the course of an 8 hour day. You can do excellent, meaningful, on purpose, intentional work in blocks of 90 minutes.
The Chhattisgarh Cabinet has approved the nomination of at least one differently abled member to each panchayat, if not elected, making it the only State to have such members in all panchayats. “Differently abled people constitute 6% of the population of Chhattisgarh. As promised in the jan ghoshna patra [manifesto], we have taken the landmark step of strengthening their voices at the grassroots level,” said T.S. Singh Deo, State Panchayati Raj Minister. ‘Elected or nominated’“Every panchayat will now have differently abled members, either elected or nominated,” he said. If differently abled members are not elected through the electoral process, then one member, either male or female, would be nominated as a panch. And as for janpads and zilla panchayats, the State government would nominate two such members, one male and one female, to them. During a meeting at the house of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, the Cabinet approved the amendment to the State Panchayat Raj Act, 1993. The proposals will be tabled in the Vidhan Sabha, where the Congress holds 68 of the 90 seats. This means, said Mr. Deo, the State would have 11,000 people with special needs as members of panchayats. “We strongly believe that no one should be left behind. We are committed to empowering the common people. This is the top most priority of the Congress government in Chhattisgarh.” Meanwhile, the Cabinet also decided to drop the educational qualifications eligibility criterion for contesting panchayat elections. “It is mandatory for a contestant for the position of a panch to be at least a Class V pass, and above that Class VIII pass. In the three-tier panchayati raj system, only being literate would be enough to contest elections,” said a note from the government.
New Delhi, Mar 16 (PTI) Rejecting Rajya Sabhas five amendments and oppositions appeal not to make “haste”, the Lok Sabha today passed the legislation that aims at better targeting of subsidies through the Aadhar unique identity number within hours of the Upper Housing returning it. Just moments before it was adjourned for more than a month-long recess for scrutiny of budget, the Lok Sabha adopted the the Aadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and other subsidies, benefits and services) Bill, 2016, by a voice vote after rejecting the recommendations for five amendments made by the Upper House earlier in the evening. Armed with the Speakers that it was a money bill, the government rushed it through the Rajya Sabha, which cannot amend it but only make recommendations for amendment to the Lok Sabha. Once the Lok Sabha passes a money bill with or without amendments recommended by the Rajya Sabha, it is deemed to have been passed by both the Houses. Showing urgency in getting the law through, the government, which enjoys a comfortable majority in the Lok Sabha, brought the measure to the lower house within an hour of being returned by the Rajya Sabha. The government considers the Aadhar bill as a significant instrument for implementing its Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) schemes by better targeting of beneficiaries but the Opposition attacked the government saying it was violating the Supreme Court direction that Aadhar card cannot be made mandatory but should only be voluntary. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who moved the bill and piloted them in both the Houses, also turned down opposition argument that Parliament cannot legislate since the matter is before Supreme Court. Parliament cannot abdicate its duty under the Constitutional which clearly separates powers among various institutions, he said. In last-ditch attempts, Opposition members including those from Trinamool, CPI(M) and BJD appealed to the government to respect the “wisdom” of the house of elders and accept their amendments in a democratic spirit and not to reject them on “ego”. The Lok Sabha rejected the amendments proposed by the Rajya Sabha by a voice vote amid walk out by opposition parties including Trinamool Congress, BJD and CPM. Congress members were conspicuous by their absence. (More) PTI PR NKD DP CS ADS VSCadvertisement
