Cristiano Ronaldo on course to $1 billion in career earnings

first_imgLisbon: Cristiano Ronaldo is en route to becoming first football player and third sportsman overall to cross $1 billion in career earnings. This is despite the fact that Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to a wage cut of nearly 4 million Euros with his club Juventus so as to fight the coronavirus pandemic.According to Forbes, the cut hardly puts a dent on the Portuguese captain’s annual earnings and he had earned a staggering $109 million last year. A further 30 percent wage cut is on the cards with the Serie A frozen due to the pandemic but Ronaldo could still earn an estimated $46 million annual paycheck.The earnings he receives from his sponsorship deals and his CR7 underwear line could help take his earnings this year close to the $100 million mark again. This would help take him past the $1 billion in total earnings over an 18-year career. Ronaldo made his professional debut in 2002.The 35-year-old is currently in his hometown of Madeira as the football season in Italy and around the world grinded to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.Three of Ronaldo’s teammates at Juventus — Argentine star Paulo Dybala, Italian defender Daniele Rugani and France’s World Cup winning midfielder Blaise Matuidi have all tested positive for the novel virus that has taken nearly 65,000 around the world.

first_imgRyan Cooper scored twice and Josh Williams recorded his third shutout of the season sparking the Nelson Leafs to a 4-0 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Spokane Braves Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The win snapped a brief one-game losing skid for the Green and White.Nelson opened the two-game home stand weekend with a narrow 2-1 loss Friday to Beaver Valley Nitehawks.Saturday, the Leafs jumped all over the Braves, scoring twice three minutes into the game to take hold of the contest.Cooper, receiving a gift-wrapped loose puck in front of the Braves net, opened the scoring just over a minute into the game.Justin Podgorenko made it 2-0 following a similar breakdown in the Spokane defence.Leaf coach Mario DiBella, a stickler for detail was pleased with the result despite times when the Leafs were inconsistent in their play.”Well there were good moments and bad moments out there, but we came to play tonight,” DiBella confessed.Nelson dominated most of the game, peppering Spokane goalie Ben Waslaski with 44 shots in total.The Braves were having lots of trouble breaking free from their side of the ice with Leafs swarming from all sides.Nelson on average for the night were getting 15 shots per period compared to Spokane’s five per period.

Trumps Twitter tirades shadow Trudeaus talk on social media and politics

first_imgPARIS – Politicians working to harness the power of social media to connect with voters need to figure out how to do so positively in the face of leaders using those platforms to undermine democracy, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says.Without mentioning anyone by name at an event in Paris on Monday morning, Trudeau suggested there are politicians who are trying to use platforms like Twitter to foster polarization and controversy in the electorate.The medium is not without its benefits, Trudeau said, pointing to the ease of putting out a tweet of condolence or support being easier, more direct and resonating more with citizens than issuing a press statement carried by traditional media.That same ease and directness that Trudeau said can be used to build confidence in government and democratic institutions can just as easily be used by politicians trying to “make you angry or make you divided or make you hate your neighbour” — pitting one kind of social media politician against the other.“If it ends up in a screaming match between one side versus the other side, whoever is better at nasty is going to win,” Trudeau said at a Paris conference on the use of technology by governments.“If we actually think about it, it’s easier to push someone into being angry — it’s harder to pull them into being positive and earnest and involved.”The discussion was driven by U.S. President Donald Trump, who regularly uses Twitter to fire up his legions of followers and vent at his critics.Trudeau has been a target of Trump’s irate tweeting, particularly after the G7 meeting in Charlevoix, Que., over the prime minister’s comments on trade negotiations.When asked directly to comment about Trump’s Twitter usage, Trudeau suggested Trump is just being Trump.“I think it’s important that people are authentic and he’s certainly authentic,” Trudeau said.The comments came one day after Trudeau and other world leaders issued dire warnings about leaders calling themselves nationalists and the problems they pose for maintaining peace and the world order built in the aftermath of the world wars.Again, no names were mentioned, but the warnings seemed clearly aimed at Trump who has repeatedly professed his “American” nationalism.Trudeau suggested he doesn’t call out Trump by name in any criticism in order to keep the peace with Canada’s neighbour to the south.“One of the things that Canadians expect of me is to continue to stand up for Canadian values, for Canadian interests as I always do loudly and clearly sharing our perspectives on how to build a better world, while at the same time keeping a constructive relationship with our closest neighbour and largest trading partner — and that’s what I will continue to do,” he said.Trudeau also took time at the conference to tout his government’s progress on digitizing the way it delivers services.The prime minister has made the use of technology and data a priority in providing government programs to Canadians through digital channels alongside better, more up to date information to feed federal decisions.In September, the federal government launched its new “digital standards” to help public servants navigate their way towards what the Liberals call an “effective digital government.”But there have been hiccups along the way.A pilot project from Statistics Canada to scoop up anonymized and randomized banking transactions on 500,000 Canadians has faced steep criticism from opposition parties in the House of Commons.And internal documents obtained by The Canadian Press paint a clearer picture of detailed work underway to overcome the challenges the civil service faces in meeting the Liberals’ digital goals.Documents obtained under the Access to Information Act suggest challenges in how to handle vast amounts of disparate data, the funding needed to acquire or generate data to fill gaps, and “legal and cultural impediments to sharing and accessing data.”The prime minister travels later Monday to Singapore for a summit organized by a 10-nation bloc that will put his government’s trade diversification plans on display.Trudeau is on a 10-day trip across Europe and Asia that began Friday with a gathering of world leaders in France to mark a century since the end of the First World War.— Follow @jpress on Twitter.last_img read more

Minister Valcourt unaware of residential school document destruction denial policy

first_imgJorge BarreraAPTN National NewsAboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt says he’s unaware of an internal analysis drafted by his department outlining Ottawa’s position to officially deny Indian residential school documents were ever intentionally destroyed.Valcourt faced questions from the NDP during question period Thursday following an APTN National News story based on an Aboriginal Affairs internal analysis describing the reason behind Ottawa’s policy to claim missing residential school documents were accidentally destroyed.The department’s analysis said an admission that residential school documents were ever intentionally destroyed would open the federal government to litigation.Compensation payments to residential school survivors under the multi-billion dollar settlement agreement are largely based on historical records proving students attended the institutions.Over 50,000 survivors have failed to obtain their claimed compensation because no historical record existed proving they attended the schools.Valcourt said he was not aware the department had drafted an analysis on the issue.“If my department issued such a document officially, show it to me,” said Valcourt, in an interview.APTN National News forwarded the document to the minister’s office, which claimed it did not reflect government policy and was written by a junior bureaucrat.“The document in question was a draft written by a junior staffer. It does not reflect the government’s views,” said Valcourt’s spokesperon Jason MacDonald.MacDonald, however, did not state what exactly the government’s views were in respect to the destruction of residential school documents.Download (PDF, Unknown)Indian residential school documents were pulped and incinerated as a result of three major rounds of government-wide document destruction directives issued between 1936 and 1973.Valcourt seemed perturbed by the NDP’s line of questioning during QP and appeared to believe B.C. MP Jean Crowder, the party’s Aboriginal affairs critic, was accusing the Harper government of destroying documents.“Well 1939, I was not here, this government was not here, we did not destroy documents,” he said. “Unless the genius of the NDP can resurrect 1939 documents, there is nothing I can do.”The federal government maintains that none of these documents were ever purposely destroyed, but fell victim to floods and fires, according to an Aboriginal Affairs analysis recently obtained by the National Residential School Survivor Society through the Access to Information Act.“The government of Canada has taken the position that there was no deliberate destruction of student records and residential school documents and that documents were destroyed as a result of institutions that burnt down or were flooded,” says a departmental analysis from 2009. “The admission of the deliberate destruction of student records and documents might spur further legal action against the government of Canada.”The analysis was triggered by a report issued by the National Residential School Survivor Society which took issue with the missing paper trails that left many residential school survivors receiving far less in compensation than they initially claimed because they couldn’t prove how many years they actually attended the school.Under the multi-billion dollar residential school settlement, $1.9 billion was set aside for “Common Experience Payments” which were based on the number of years former students attended the schools.A separate, Independent Assessment Process, was created to deal with compensation for abuse suffered at the schools.Crowder said it was troubling Aboriginal Affairs appeared to have such a limited grasp over the issue of historical residential school documents.“If the department doesn’t have a handle on whether documents were destroyed or not, then there are serious repercussions for survivors if documents were destroyed because we know those documents were relied on for compensation,” said Crowder.The federal government is already stinging from this week’s release of the spring Auditor General’s report which chided Aboriginal Affairs and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission over their handling of the transfer of existing residential school documents.With the TRC facing the end of its mandate in a little over a year, it’s still unclear how much it will cost to gather all the remaining documents, who will pay for it or even what documents are “relevant.”[email protected]@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Canadas Walk of Fame to add Donovan Bailey Anna Paquin Viola Desmond

first_imgTORONTO – Six influential Canadians from the circles of sports, entertainment and culture will be added to Canada’s Walk of Fame next month.Olympic gold medallist Donovan Bailey, Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin and civil rights pioneer Viola Desmond, are among the diverse selection of people who will be inducted at the annual awards gala in Toronto on Nov. 15.The others are Canadian folk icon Stompin’ Tom Connors, telecommunications leader Ted Rogers and science TV host and environmental activist David Suzuki.Half of this year’s honourees are posthumous recognitions as the organization’s incoming CEO Jeffrey Latimer attempts to draw equal attention to Canadians outside the entertainment and sports worlds.Desmond, who died in 1965, emerged as a figure who challenged racial segregation in Nova Scotia during the 1940s after being jailed for sitting in the whites-only section of a movie theatre. She fought the charges in court, and after losing various proceedings, closed her business and left the province. Desmond is often credited as Canada’s Rosa Parks, even though her trial pre-dated Parks’ 1955 challenge of bus segregation in Montgomery, Ala.In 2010, Desmond was given a posthumous pardon and an apology from the Nova Scotia government. More recently, she was featured in both a Heritage Minute and chosen to grace the new $10 bill. She is only the second honouree to be recognized specifically for her social justice work, after Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour was inducted in 2014.Connors, who died of kidney failure in 2013, is hailed as a writer of Canada’s cultural songbook with staples like “Bud the Spud,” “The Hockey Song” and “Sudbury Saturday Night.”Rogers, the late president and CEO of Rogers Communications Inc. who died in 2008, is considered a seminal figure in Canada’s broadcasting landscape. His upstart company stepped into the cable industry in 1967 and in the decades that followed became a dominant player in TV, radio and publishing.Bailey is a two-time Olymipic gold medallist and three-time world champion sprinter who once held the 100-metre world record.Actress Paquin is the youngest Canadian to win an Academy Award, capturing the honour for her role in the 1993 film “The Piano.” She has gone onto play Rogue in the “X-Men” movie franchise and Sookie in HBO’s “True Blood.”Suzuki, who holds a PhD in zoology, rose to international fame with his CBC-TV program “The Nature of Things,” which has aired around the world. He’s also an outspoken activist for numerous causes, including his own David Suzuki Foundation which encourages living in a sustainable environment.This year’s Canada’s Walk of Fame additions bring the number of inductees to 173. The ceremony will be broadcast in a one-hour TV special on Dec. 3. Eric McCormack, star of “Will & Grace” star and a former inductee, will host the festivities.last_img read more

Fire at Bandhwari landfill site points to untreated waste hazard

first_imgGurugram: Fire at Bandhwari landfill site highlights that not having waste management in place is resulting in dangers piling up at the 30-acre landfill site nestled in Aravallis.The fire was caused on Monday. The main causes of the fire were attributed to the extreme heat caused due to the summer that led the methane gas present in the garbage to catch fire. Despite the assurances that waste at the landfill site will be treated, it is expected that there are 25 lakh tonnes of garbage of Gurugram and Faridabad combined dumped at the site. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe extreme dangers get further added to it has come to fore that leachate (a poisonous liquid substance that emanates from the garbage) has again begun to percolate outside the landfill. Even though the problem was solved on temporary measures, the urgency of finding a long term solution has again been raised with problems resurfacing. After repeated complaints, there can finally be a solution to the challenge of the toxic underground water table at Bandhwari and the areas around it caused due to the leachate of the presence of the 30-acre-landfill site. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsTo tackle this issue, a leachate treatment plant was expected to be set up at an area. At present more than 1,000 tonnes of garbage from Gurugram and Faridabad is discarded daily at the area that is nestled in the green belt of Aravallis. Based on the proposal, the plant will treat more than 100 kiloliters of leachate daily. It will be set up the Chinese company Eco green that has also been entrusted with the responsibility of recycling the waste in the area into the creation of power and other useful forms. As the layout of the projects, works presently are being undertaken. Commissioned in 2008, Bandhwari landfill was created with an objective of segregation and recycling of waste generated from Gurgaon and Faridabad. Set up with an investment of Rs 300 crores the was to operationalise a power plant and plastic recycling at the site. After laying defunct for more than four-and-half years the recycling unit was again set up after a lot of protests. There is criticism that work at the plant has not been carried out the pace as was promised and the waste continues to be dumped as it was done earlier. To reduce the amount of waste being dumped at the site the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram is encouraging composting among various residential and commercial sites.last_img read more

Consortium threatens to stop Panama Canal expansion

first_imgA Spanish-led consortium threatened Thursday to halt a massive, $5.3 billion (3.9-billion-euro) expansion of the Panama Canal, which handles five percent of world maritime trade, because of a row over cost overruns.Spanish builder Sacyr, leader of the Grupo Unidos por el Canal consortium, said work will stop unless the canal pays $1.6 billion in cost overruns for work on the 80-kilometre (50-mile) waterway connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.“GUPC has formally informed the Panama Canal Authority that it will suspend work if the failures to comply are not put right within the advised period,” Sacyr said in a statement to Spanish market regulators. The consortium said it had set the canal authorities a 21-day deadline before suspending the project to install a third set of canal locks.The news sent Sacyr shares plunging by more than 18 percent as trade opened on the Madrid stock exchange. By late morning they were down 8.95 percent at 3.43 euros.On Wednesday, Panama canal administrator Jorge Quijano warned that the canal authority would use contractual mechanisms to ensure the completion of the canal expansion.“No matter what kind of pressure is exercised against the ACP (Panama Canal Authority), we maintain our demand that Grupo Unidos por el Canal respect the contract that they agreed to and signed,” he said in a statement quoted by Panama media.A year ago, GUPC demanded an extra payment of $1.6 billion from the ACP due to construction delays.Led by Spain’s Sacyr, the consortium also includes Impregilo of Italy, Belgian firm Jan De Nul and Panama’s Constructora Urbana.It began work on a third set of locks for the canal in 2009 and expects to complete construction in June 2015, already a nine-month delay over the date set in the contract.The new locks will accommodate larger ships with a capacity of 12,000 containers — instead of those with 5,000 containers that are now able to navigate the canal.Some 13,000 to 14,000 ships navigate the canal each year.According to the canal authority, there was a delay of four months shortly after the project began because GUPC had planned to use lower-quality cement that would have prevented the construction from lasting more than 100 years.But Sacyr said the GUPC consortium had submitted justified claims for $1.625 billion in cost overruns due to “unforeseeable” circumstances to the relevant authorities, including the International Court of Arbitration.“GUPC is maintaining communication with the Panama Canal Authority to reach a satisfactory agreement to put an end to the contractual imbalance,” it added.The canal uses a system of locks to raise ships from sea level and enable them to sail through the continental divide.last_img read more
