London Olympic stadium likely to host 2019 World Cup matches: Report

first_imgThe London Olympic stadium is likely to get the green light from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for staging some of the matches of the 2019 World Cup.After conducting a full inspection of the ground, the ICC have found the stadium, with a capacity of 60,000 — twice than any of the cricket grounds in the United Kingdom — that the pitch dimensions complied with requirements for One-day Internationals (ODI), according to an espncricinfo report.However, a final decision on the use of the stadium for hosting World Cup matches is expected in the coming months.The move is being viewed as an attempt to draw more crowd for some of the group stage matches, similar to those at multi-sport grounds like the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia and Eden Park in New Zealand during the 2015 World Cup, adding to the excitement surrounding the tournament.The ICC is also mulling at setting up fan zones around the country to help promote the tournament.last_img read more

Trojans fans are comfortable but will that be the case Saturday

As we all know, one of college football’s most anticipated games is upon us. The Buckeyes will face the Trojans in the ‘Shoe this weekend, to try and gain some revenge after their defeat in Southern California last year. We all know what Ohio State fans are talking about, revenge, home field advantage, freshman quarterback, new defense, etc. But what about those USC fans? What are they talking about? Roy Manukyan is a junior at the University of Southern California studying accounting. He has grown up in the Los Angeles area and has always been a USC fan. A year ago, Roy was predicting big things out of running back Joe McKnight, and predicting a close USC win over Ohio State. But after last year’s performance, what are students at USC thinking and feeling about this weekend’s big show? “USC students are confident and excited,” Manukyan said. “Because of the result of the last game, there seems to be a lower level of excitement than a year ago. There is no question, however, that this game is much more meaningful to the future of the USC Trojans.” However, Maukyan was a little more hesitant to admit personal belief in an easy USC victory. “We are expecting a victory, though my personal opinion is that it is going to be much more difficult than most students anticipate,” he said. Coach Jim Tressel is highly regarded around Ohio State, but lately, some have been questioning his decision-making. Tressel does not have a great record in non-conference games on the national stage. But, nonetheless, you can find t-shirts that read “In Tressel we Trust,” or posters boasting Tressel’s impressive record against Michigan. Coach Pete Carroll is arguably one of the most impressive and successful coaches in college football, and that idea is not lost on USC students. “The general mantra around campus is ‘In Carroll We Trust,’” Manukyan said. That is what Manukyan, along with other USC students and fans tell themselves when they consider that USC is playing their first true freshman at starting quarterback in 11 years since Carson Palmer took the reins in five starts in 1998.Matt Barkley, who played and started his first college football game in USC’s season opener against San Jose State, is the first true freshman to ever start in a USC season opener. Barkely was 15-of-19 for 233 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Trojan’s 56-3 victory over San Jose State. “Most people were holding their breath when Barkley took the field against San Jose State, and after Barkley got over his first quarter jitters he really proved himself to the USC fans,” Manukyan said. “If he can maintain his solid first game performance and keep his veins icy I think he should do just fine.” But, despite his confidence in the young quarterback, Manukyan said that most fans are expecting Carroll to play conservatively against Ohio State, with a lot of runs, screen plays and short passes. “I don’t think Pete is going to let Barkley throw bombs downfield,” Manukyan said. “At least not early in the game.” As for the young and inexperienced Trojan defense, Manukyan said that USC fans believe the core is much more solid than the nation is giving them credit for. “USC has traditionally had problems with scrambling quarterbacks, and I think Jim is going to let Pryor be Pryor,” Manukyan said. “But, one thing that Jim is not going to do is let Pryor throw the ball anywhere within twenty feet of Taylor Mays.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise that USC fans are confident in their team and coach. But with a freshman quarterback and a defense that is missing eight of last season’s starters, everything is up in the air heading into this weekend’s battle. Luckily for the Buckeyes, the likes of Manukyan will be in the minority on Saturday as around 100,000 Buckeye fans will fill Ohio Stadium, ready to cheer their team to victory. read more

Natl Insurance the best social plan says Deputy Director

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Bench warrants issued for TCI insurance defaulters Bahamas Police denies suspect hide out in TCI Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 04 May 2015 – The National Insurance Board tells the public that over the 23 years it has been in existence, there has been over $77 million dollars in payments to beneficiaries. This as the company recently announced a staggered approach to raising the wage ceiling over a three year period and giving increases in some of its plans. Deputy Director of Operations Walter Gardiner has been hard at work lately on the PR front for NIB, explaining in a media release issued recently that: ““The NIS legislation today is undoubtedly the best piece of social protection legislation ever implemented in the TCI. Introduced under an extremely dark cloud of suspicion, mistrust and opposition from employers, employees and self-employed alike, convincing the general public to ‘buy – in’ and comply was quite a challenge at that time as this was the very first time that monies were mandatorily deducted from salaries.” Gardiner admits that largely, the public saw NIB as a mere tax, that some businesses even threatened to cut staff and others had forecast failure… but the near quarter of a century of existence for the organization and the elephant sized payouts over this time, he says, proves it was a good move for the Turks and Caicos. Over 1,400 people are a part of the long term payouts, in the pensioners category – they get around $9 million of the monies distributed per year. Overall NIB is reported to pay out $12 million annually, with some $200 million in reserves and collections from the workers in the country announced at $25 million dollars per annum. Gardiner added: I believe that we have proven our worth to the people of the TCI … Today, thousands of people depend on us, but more importantly, thousands of people can depend on us”.
