The latest intervention from Ferguson, who has made a remarkable recovery from the brain haemorrhage he suffered last May, came at the behest of Solskjaer and took place at the training ground.The squad are presently in Dubai for a training camp ahead of Sunday’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur which represents a real test for Solskjaer to maintain his perfect record of five wins in five matches.“He (Ferguson) told the lads that this group will make United dominant and successful again,” the source told The Sun.“He said that he believes in them and he wants them to enjoy themselves and to fight hard for each other and leave everything on the pitch.”Ferguson told the players that in Solskjaer — who has put a smile back on the players faces since the departure of the volatile Mourinho — they could look forward to happier times.Solskjaer and Ferguson know each other well as the Norwegian played under him for 11 years, accruing many trophies including six Premier League titles and the 1999 Champions League trophy.“He also told them that the club is in good hands and he promised them that it will become bigger and better in the years to come and they will be part of this success,” the source said.“The players believe that there are some good times ahead.”Although Solskjaer has been appointed as a stop gap till the end of the season — Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino remains the bookmakers favourite for the full-time post — the players are keen according to the Daily Mirror he gets the job.Solskjaer could do himself no end of good in pursuit of the job by landing a trophy this term with United still involved in the Champions League and the FA Cup, though, they were drawn away to Premier League rivals Arsenal in Monday’s fourth round draw.“The players want to repay Sir Alex for his support and kind words and are determined to win something for him and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season,” the source said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s legendary former manager Alex Ferguson gave the players a rousing speech promising them success lay ahead under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer © AFP / ANDREW YATESLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 8 – Manchester United’s legendary former manager Alex Ferguson delivered a rousing call to arms to the players, insisting they could make the club successful again, a source close to the Premier League team told The Sun.The 77-year-old Scot — who guided United to numerous trophies including two Champions League titles during his 27-year reign — has played an increasingly prominent role since former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became interim manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
6 January 2014 About 40 000 minstrels – or Kaapse Klopse as they are popularly known – took over the streets of Cape Town on Saturday as part of the annual Tweede Nuwejaar (second New Year) street parade, one of the city’s largest and most historic cultural events. In an event lasting around 10 hours, the 75 colourful groups of musicians, dancers and troupe members danced their way from Zonnebloem to the city centre. Around 60 000 of the Cape Town’s residents and visitors cheeredon the performers on a sweltering day in the city’s centre. While the 200-year-old event is usually held on 2 January – the one day Cape slaves were given off every year – it was moved to Saturday this year at the request of the minstrels to allow more people to attend.Glamour A stage was set up at the Grand Parade, where entertainers selected by the minstrels to represent Cape Town’s rich cultural diversity performed before the formal programme began. The event attracts entire communities, including young children, all kitted out in glamorous outfits. “The various brightly clad teams carry a rainbow of umbrellas and some are armed with musical instruments, dazzling onlookers with toe-tapping songs and beautifully choreographed dances, preserving a custom that began in the mid- 1800s,” the city explains on its website. “The Tweede Nuwe Jaar Parade is so ingrained in local society that some performers have been taking part in the parade for over 30 years, and are not only joined by their children but even their grandchildren for this extravagant event.” The annual ‘Tweede Nuwe Jaar’ parade and the Cape Minstrels were part of the rich cultural heritage of Cape Town, Grant Pascoe, Cape Town’s mayoral committee member for tourism, events and marketing said in a statement on the city’s website. “It is more fitting than ever to ring in the New Year a second time, as we enter the 20th year of South Africa’s democracy. Embracing our cultural diversity is an integral part of our commitment to building an inclusive city.” City of Cape Town and SAinfo reporter
The Bill, therefore, seeks to get rid of preliminary examinations or enquiries. Story Highlights Currently there are inordinate delays in the conduct of preliminary enquiries. Debate on the Committal Proceedings Act 2013, which seeks to eliminate preliminary enquiries in Resident Magistrates’ courts,commenced in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, September 23.Attorney General, Hon. Patrick Atkinson, who opened the debate, outlined that the aim of the legislation is to alleviate or reduce problems caused by and related to inordinate delay, high legal costs and the unavailability of witnesses to give evidence.The Bill was passed in the Upper House in late April of this year.A preliminary examination is a criminal proceeding conducted by a Resident Magistrate to determine whether a serious indictable offence for which an accused is charged is within the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court.The principal objectives of that preliminary examination are to inform the accused of the nature and content of the case against him/her and to determine whether there is a prima facie case against the accused and to this end, witnesses are called to cross examination.If a prima facie case has been established, it also defines the issues to be presented to the circuit court, and if not, the Magistrate would discharge the accused.Mr. Atkinson said that currently there are inordinate delays in the conduct of preliminary enquiries for various reasons. He noted that there is a monumental backlog of these cases, “which contribute to the ultimate delay in the disposal of the matters, because if they are stalled in the Resident Magistrates Court, they obviously cannot be tried in the Supreme Court”.He noted that in addition to being conducive to delays, the requirement for the attendance of witnesses to give live evidence exposes them to the additional opportunity for inappropriate interference, for intimidation, and even physical harm, especially in cases involving vicious criminals and criminal networks.Mr. Atkinson informed that the Bill, therefore, seeks to get rid of preliminary examinations or enquiries and to establish a new proceeding to be called committal proceedings.The committal proceedings will satisfy all the aforementioned objectives of the preliminary enquiries, by allowing a Magistrate to examine witness’ written statements collected by the police and decide whether an accused person is to stand trial in the circuit court.This, he said, will also help to speed up cases through the courts. The Bill was passed in the Upper House in late April of this year.

Robert Montague, says electronic monitoring is to be introduced for persons who are the subject of Restraining Orders. Mr. Montague informed that his Ministry is in discussion with a supplier to procure the equipment.The Minister explained that once the Restraining Order is executed against a perpetrator, that person will be fitted with the electronic bracelet, while the victim will be given a transponder.“If that person comes within the limit of 100 yards from (the victim), the transponder will go off and beep and it will send off a signal to the (monitoring) centre, which will call the perpetrator and tell him to step back,” he said.Mr. Montague was addressing the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by his Ministry, the Jamaica Constabulary Force and the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona campus, to have more police recruits trained by the institution. The same technology will also be used for those persons who are on bail and those on early release from prison.“Up to March this year, some 143 persons who were on bail were also charged for murder while being on bail. We’re going to enter into some discussions with the Ministry of Justice that, for some categories of crimes, the persons on bail should wear an electronic bracelet as a condition of their bail,” he said.The Minister also indicated that some 400 members of the JCF have been trained in domestic-violence prevention.
The manager was shocked that the referee didn’t award his team a penalty kick after a first half four over Ashley Barnes.In the first half of the Burnley-Southampton match, Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy fouled Ashley Barnes.But the referee didn’t see it like that and booked Barnes for simulation.Then in the second half, Nathan Redmon gave Southampton the lead, until Barnes was given the chance to take a penalty kick in the last play of the game to even things out 1-1.“I have absolutely no idea, whatsoever, why that penalty wasn’t awarded,” Burnley coach Sean Dyche told the team’s official website.“I’ll just reiterate that when players fall naturally, I don’t think they are getting penalties.”This is the team’s first penalty in 68 English Premier League matches.“I think I’ve been honest enough to speak about that this season, when results have gone against us, such as when Harry Kane should have had one and West Ham should have been awarded one, and I just don’t know where the game is going,” the manager continued.“Dives get given as penalties and real falls are not getting given and just because Ashley hasn’t thrown his arms in the air and rolled around 10 times, he gets nothing.”Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.“The keeper comes out trying to do his job. the center forward gets there first and toes it past him, and the keeper brings him down,” he tried to explain the penalty.“It is impossible, in my opinion, that that is not a penalty and I just don’t understand it.”Burnley FC is currently sitting in the 17th position of the standings with just 24 points after 25 matches.The team has only won six games, drawing another six and losing 13.Their next match is on Saturday, February 9th against Brighton and Hove Albion.REACTION | Gaffer gives his thoughts on the two penalty incidents…WATCH MORE ➡️ https://t.co/cL58ew9PZb pic.twitter.com/B0d4OQpnJY— Burnley FC (@BurnleyOfficial) February 2, 2019
