City given green light for plans

first_img Manchester City Council has confirmed that a planning application to add up 14,500 extra seats at the venue has been approved. The Premier League club intend to increase both ends of the 47,670-capacity arena by 6,250 and add up to 2,000 additional seats around the pitch. Press Association City made public their proposals for the stadium last summer and a formal planning application was made in November. The increased capacity will make the Etihad Stadium the second largest in the Premier League, behind only Manchester United’s Old Trafford. It will be the club’s second major construction project in quick succession following the building of the £200million City Football Academy adjacent to the stadium. The CFA, which will become the training base for all the club’s teams and house medical and accommodation facilities, is due to open later this year. Both projects underline not only City’s determination to develop world-class facilities at their Etihad Campus, but also their commitment to local regeneration. City’s work has contributed significantly to the development of east Manchester, with a sixth-form college and a leisure and retail centre already being built alongside the CFA. The stadium expansion, according to the planning application, is expected to created 160 temporary jobs during construction and a further 110 matchday positions once the work is complete. The work will also continue City’s remarkable development on and off the pitch since their takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. The stadium was built in 2000 for use in the 2002 Commonwealth Games. center_img Manchester City have been granted planning permission to expand the capacity of the Etihad Stadium to more than 60,000.last_img read more

Kante: Midfield Secrets under Wraps as France Takes on Peru

first_imgThe English Premier League’s Player of the Season for 2016/17 was at his ball-winning best against Australia, regaining possession 14 times in all, though he was quick to play down that statistic.“What matters to me is winning. It was vital for us to come away with three points,” he said, before heaping praise on one of his team-mates: “Sometimes there are vital defensive situations that can change the outcome of a match. And on Saturday, without Hugo Lloris, we’d have gone 1-0 down in the 20th minute. We were all grateful to him.”Speaking in a low voice and almost apologetic tone, the Chelsea player continued to deflect attention away from himself: “I’m just a defensive player. It’s the lowest position. I’ve got the ball-carriers in front of me, and it’s our job as midfielders to link up with the defence and pick out the forwards so we can create chances.” Described by Frank Lampard as the best midfielder in the world, Kante is reluctant to say any more about his art.Up next for France is Peru this afternoon in Ekateringurg, a side he has been keeping an eye on: “They play with a lot of intensity and commitment and give it all they’ve got.” That match will give Kante another opportunity to win possession time and again, and all without a word out of place or any visible signs of irritation.Calmly rising to his feet, he shook hands once more and left through the door he came in, having left us none the wiser as to who he really is. Modest Kante is a man who keeps himself to himself and his secrets firmly under wraps.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Ngolo Kante won his first cap for France against Russia on 29 March 2016. Two years and 25 caps later, he is making his FIFA World Cup debut as an indispensable part of Les Bleus line-up. And he has achieved that status by doing what he has always done, wherever he has played: by winning and recovering possession, all without saying a word.Kante came in through the door, shook hands, and took a seat, a typically discreet smile on his face. Describing his first taste of the World Cup, the 27-year-old midfielder told FIFA: “Arriving in Russia was special. It’s taken a lot of work and effort to get here and I feel very proud.”When it comes to work, Kante, who hails from Paris’ tenth arrondissement, is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get stuck in, especially when it comes to dispatching his midfield duties. An example of that came in the 2014/15 season. Still at Caen at the time, he racked up an average of 5.3 tackles per match during the French league campaign, more than any other player in Europe’s five major championships. If ball-winning were an art form, Kante would be a museum piece.last_img read more

Study reveals cost of homelessness in LA

first_imgProviding permanent housing for the homeless in Los Angeles could save taxpayers thousands of dollars, according to a study conducted by a nonprofit organization with the assistance of USC researchers.The study, the first of its kind in Los Angeles, was conducted by the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and released last week. It took place between 2005 and 2009, following four homeless individuals in Los Angeles and noted their mental health, physical health, encounters with law enforcement, substance abuse and housing costs.According to the study, taxpayers are spending about $20,000 more in a two-year period per person living on the street than those in permanent housing, meaning they would save 43 percent of the cost if a homeless person were offered a place to live.“After being placed in permanent housing, there was a decrease in their visits to the hospital, substance abuse and jail time,” said Michael R. Cousineau, an associate professor of preventive medicine research at the Keck School of Medicine, and the principal investigator for the report.The study used self-reports and public records to calculate how much the city spent on each homeless individual based on the number of visits to the hospital, time in jail and psychiatric or substance abuse help, and compared it to the relative cost of living in permanent supportive housing.Suzanne Wenzel, a professor at USC’s School of Social Work and an expert in homelessness and substance abuse treatment, agreed that decreased visits meant less taxpayer money would be spent.“These findings for Los Angeles are consistent with other cost studies in other parts of the country,” Wenzel said. “Other studies have shown that nights in a psychiatric hospital or a night in jail are actually more costly than a night in permanent supportive housing.”Cousineau said he hopes city officials acknowledge the results of the study when deciding how to deal with the homeless population.“Hopefully they will see the supportive results and invest in housing instead of in shelters,” he said. “The cost for the government would go down with the reduction of services.”Wenzel also said officials should pay attention to the results of the study, as it offers a straightforward solution to the problem of chronic homelessness.“It’s further evidence to policymakers that providing permanent supportive housing is an appropriate approach to addressing homelessness,” she said. “Providing housing to homeless individuals is not only the humane or ethical approach, but also more cost effective.”Cousineau pointed out that other areas that have conducted studies like this one have used the results to improve the states of their homeless populations.“Many cities like San Francisco have done a lot like turning four crumbling hotels into permanent housing for homeless,” Cousineau said.He added that he hopes the study will raise awareness and help local organizations, such as Skid Row Housing Trust and A Community of Friends, address the problem.“Skid Row Housing Trust is just not enough given the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles,” Cousineau said.last_img read more

Crime Chief Lyndon Alves

first_img– re-elected Chairman outlines developmental plansDexter Harding (extreme right) and members of the new CDCFollowing the hosting of community elections last Friday, new members have been elected to serve on the Coomacka Community Development Council (CDC) in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).Re-elected as Chairman was Councillor Dexter Harding, while Carolyn Ettiene was elected Vice-Chairman. Harding won against his opponent Wendy Wagner, 78 votes to 38.Other members of the Council now include Secretary, Bernadette Torres; Treasurer, Verna Wilson-Thom; Secretary/Treasurer, Donna Thom, while Committee Members include Odessa Jones-Adams, Oswald Charles, Kenrick DeClou and Kurt Lewis. The election was officiated by Community Development Officer and Councillor Denise Belgrave.Speaking with this publication on Monday, the newly re-elected Chairman of the CDC outlined some of the plans of the Committee in moving the community forward. Some of the top priorities on the agenda is working to eradicate land and political issues.“NICIL [National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited] officials are working to regularise lands in the area, but…they had side-stepped the previous CDC and worked with a political activist on the ground and it had caused confusion, where residents were not pleased with the way it was carried out. So, I’ll be working to see that folks in the community are pleased with NICIL. I’m asking also that the President and relevant officials see that transparency be carried out in the community so that we’ll not further fracture the community politically, because we have a political fracture whereby we have a division in the community. I’ll be working on this to ensure that as a people we have unity to move forward so that the next generation would not be in the situation that we are in,” Harding noted.He added that the new CDC will meet today to propose the completion of a community hub and kitchen, a poultry pen, which will house 100 meat birds, and a permanent place to house a forestry, hub and CDC offices.“So we’ll be working on these projects to have them completed…we’ll also be talking about the 20 persons to join the HEYS [Hinterland Employment and Youth Service] programme and we have to put together a list for the drainage project, also for those who will be cooking on the feeding programme for the primary and nursery schools. These are things we will ensure we put in place in the first quarter”, Harding further outlined. He noted too that the lighting and fencing of the community ballfield and other projects are also on the agenda.Harding said he was happy and excited to continue to work within the community. With this being his third time being elected to serve in the capacity, he said he does not think he will be running for a fourth term. He noted, however, that he will be working over the next two years to accomplish the goals set out by the CDC.last_img read more
