Manchester City will target second place in the Premier League and focus on cup competitions with unbeaten league leaders Liverpool too far ahead to reel in, manager Pep Guardiola said. “There always needs to be something exciting to keep going and improve. “You cannot play good games in the knockout competitions if you are not running well in the Premier League. It is not that you are good one day and bad in another. You have to maintain your standards.” City travel to Sheffield United on Tuesday but Guardiola confirmed they will be without defenders John Stones and Benjamin Mendy . “John had a problem with the last action (in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace),” Guardiola added. “Mendy has some muscular fatigue and the others are ok.” The Spaniard also jumped to the defence of Stones, who had a poor outing against Palace and was roundly criticised for his part in City conceding both goals. read also: It must be boring at home to be a coach at 70–Guardiola “It was unfair,” Guardiola said of the criticism. “You have ups and downs in your career… We know his quality.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Defending league champions City are 16 points behind Liverpool – who have a game in hand – and Guardiola said he could not afford to be distracted by Jurgen Klopp’s side who have recorded the best run of form in Premier League history. “We cannot deny that Liverpool are extraordinary in terms of football and results,” Guardiola told reporters. “Every day I live almost 24 hours thinking about what we’re doing and what we can do better so I am not distracted by other teams and leagues. “(Our target is) to finish second, to improve every day and for the knockout games in the other competitions we have.Advertisement Promoted ContentWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?The Best Cars Of All TimePretty Awesome Shows That Just Got CanceledEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

By Shane Farley, Newscow.net â€” A Winfield woman has pleaded guilty to a federal charge in connection with an online prostitution sting investigators conducted last year.25-year-old Brittany L. Morris pleaded guilty to a count of misprision of a felony.In her plea, Morris admitted arranging for herself and a 17-year-old girl to meet officers at a hotel off K-10 Highway near Eudora to exchange sex acts for money. The arrangement was made on April 11, 2013 when undercover agents called to respond to an advertisement online.Once at the hotel, Morris told officers the price would be $600 an hour. Once arrested, officers learned the girl with her was 17.The charge stems from Morris failing to report that a child was working as a prostitute. Investigators determined the unnamed girl had worked in New Orleans, Wichita and Kansas City with Morris.Both Morris and the girl posted advertisements on the Internet offering their services.Sentencing is set for Feb. 18 and both Morris and federal prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence of 8 to 14 months.Follow us on Twitter.

Inspector General of Police, Col. Chris Massaquoi has described as “significant” a hotline project launched by the Search for Common Ground and the Professional Standard Division (PSD) and called on the public to file in complaints about unprofessional conduct of any police officer.Making the statement in an assertive mood during the launch of the hotline at the Liberia National Police Headquarters on February 20, Col. Massaquoi stressed that no police officer, even himself, is above the law.He said with the law hanging above all in the land, he will not relent to investigate any officer and punish those found guilty of unprofessional conduct.“This project is a significant one that will draw civilians close to the police, and I want to thank Search for Common Ground for that. The public should make use of this to file in any complaint about any officer who behaves unprofessionally, and we will deal with that person. “All they need to do is to get the name of the officer, the badge number, and area of assignment,” Col Massaquoi said.He recalled that complaints had come out against some officers who were investigated and those found to have been engaged in unethical acts were penalized while others were disrobed.He, however, indicated that in spite of efforts made to draw civilians close to the police, many people do not file complaints when there is professional misconduct, but would take the issue to the media.Col. Massaquoi, who appeared annoyed over media complaints about police misconduct, said it is not the proper way and it makes, “it difficult for us in authority to investigate such claims of misconduct.”He stressed that before taking an issue to the media, the Liberia National Police should be contacted before going public to the media and called on partners, including Search for Common Ground, to help disseminate the good work that police officers are doing for the country.“Police are doing some good things in the midst of challenges here, but the good is not propagated. The public only talks bad about us and our partners who know what we do should tell the public,” Col. Massaquoi asserted.With respect to the role of the LNP and the importance of the hotline, Search for Common Ground Director, Oscar Bloh recalled that the current members of the LNP, since 2005, have exhibited high levels of professionalism.However, Mr. Bloh was quick to note that there are still “Bad apples” among them and the LNP should weed out those bad ones. He called on the LNP to investigate cases and reduce impunity.He put the cost of the project at US$100,000 primarily provided by the Swedish International Development Agency.In another statement, Dr. Thomas Jaye of the Kofi Annan Institute of Peace and Conflict Transformation said the project will enhance citizens’ trust in the LNP and called on the public to make a better use of it.Search for Common Ground is expected to print the call center telephone numbers in abundance to circulate them in public places so citizens can call in case of any problem, he said.The project will for now be implemented in five counties, including Montserrado, Bong, Lofa, Nimba and Grand Gedeh.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Coverage of Parliament– as 2-day GPA/ACM workshop concludesThe National Assembly’s proposed draft code of conduct for Journalists who cover matters related to parliamentary sittings is being staunchly opposed by members of the local media fraternity, as consultations proved over the weekend.Some of the participants in the two-day GPA/ACM training programme on coverage of Parliament pose for the cameras on Sunday (Association of Caribbean Media Workers photo)The consultations and media training workshop were facilitated by the Canadian High Commission, the Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM), and the Guyana Press Association (GPA) in the parliamentary chambers on April 7 and 8.At one point during the penultimate day of training, the attendees were separated into two groups. While one group was chaired by veteran Journalist and Editor-in-Chief of the Trinidadian newspaper Newsday, Judy Raymond, the other group was chaired by founding ACM President Wesley Gibbings.It was subsequently revealed that the parliamentary chambers were formulating a draft code of conduct, as well as mulling the introduction of accreditation for parliamentary reporters. Subsequent reports from the chairpersons of these sub-meetings showed that the attending media personnel were unanimously against the measure.During her presentation on her group’s discussions, Raymond related that the media personnel were opposed to the draft code on the grounds of its potential to be used punitively. She reported that it was felt that since Journalists were already guided by ethical principles from the profession and workplace, additional codes of practice would be wholly unnecessary.“There was a concern, with regard to both issues, that conditions or penalties might be imposed which could affect individual Journalists, to their detriment and possibly detract from the range and quality of coverage in Parliament,” Raymond reported.Voicing similar views, GPA Executive Royden James reported that his group also felt that such measures should come from the media houses and not the National Assembly. Concerns were also raised about the purported security rationale behind accreditation.Last year, the National Assembly saw two breaches; one where a woman attired as Santa Claus gained access to the chambers during a presentation from Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo.In another breach, a spectator began singing “God is watching you”, a line from a famous Nanci Griffith song, during a sitting of the National Assembly late last year. Further, there was a case of undercover Police ranks posing as media operatives and sitting among media personnel…until they were exposed.According to Public Relations Officer of the National Assembly, Yannick December, the need for accreditation of media personnel covering parliamentary matters is made greater by these instances.“What you had there was a miscommunication,” December related, in brief comments on the undercover Police controversy. “They’re supposed to notify us in advance and we would know that these persons would be here.”Far from the media having to be subjected to security measures, former GPA President Dennis Chabrol stressed that it was the media who actually needed protection. Here, cases of the undercover ranks shadowing the media in the National Assembly were cited.Concerns were also raised by Guyana Times Journalist Jarryl Bryan about the National Assembly’s failure to aggressively update documents accessible online, such as its Hansards. The latest Hansard dates from the 71st sitting of the Assembly in November 2017. While noting that hard copies of Hansards can be provided by the library, Assistant Clerk of the National Assembly Deslyn West promised to look into the matter.The two-day media training had started on Saturday, with the aim to improve the media’s knowledge of parliamentary practices and procedures, improve the media’s understanding of its role in an evolving democracy and consider the tenets of journalistic ethics vis-à-vis parliamentary coverage.At the end of the session, media operatives received a certificate of participation.
A drunk-driver who killed two women after a drink and drugs binge said he would do anything to take back what he did.Pals Kiara Baird, aged 19, and Maria Wallis, aged 38, died when Dermot Dowd lost control of his car outside Ballybofey in Co Donegal on September 21st, 2016. Dowd initially tried to claim that Ms Wallis, a mother-of-three, was driving the Citroën C3 car which crashed at Glenfin Road.The 24-year-old later admitted drinking for hours in a local bar with the two women before getting behind the wheel.Ms Baird died at the scene while Ms Wallis died a short time later in hospital after both had been thrown out of the car during the horrific crash.Dowd pleaded guilty before Letterkenny Circuit Court to dangerous driving causing death and last February he was jailed to five years in prison and banned from driving for fifteen years by Judge John Aylmer.He again appeared at Letterkenny Courthouse today to face the relatives of the dead women during the victims’ inquests.Dermot Dowd leaving Letterkenny Circuit Court. (North West Newspix)The Dubliner, with an address at Donegal Road, Ballybofey, told how he met Maria and Kiara at Bonner’s Bar in Ballybofey earlier that morning.Both women were drinking and he said he drank a number of pints, as well as vodka and whiskey as well as having some weed and that everyone was in good form.They decided to go to Maria’s house and the women asked Dowd to drive Maria’s Citreon car as they did not want to.They called into the local Centra Supermarket where they purchased two crates of Budweiser beer.Dowd said that none of the three of them were wearing seatbelts while in the car.He then said he slowed up towards a bend while on the way to Maria’s house but the car started to slide and then he suddenly heard a bang.He said he looked around and the women were gone and that it all happened so fast.He added, “I’m sorry and I would do anything to change what happened.”The day on which the women were killed was the official ‘European Day Without a Road Death’, an initiative organised by TISPOL, the Traffic Police network in Europe, and its aim is that nobody would die on the roads of Europe on that day.Witness Karl Gallen said he was working in the area at the time and saw a small blue car ‘shot straight out’ in front of him in Ballybofey.“I had to slam on the brakes so not to hit him. I was very lucky he didn’t hit me,” said Mr Gallen.Ms Lou Ann Glacken said she had just collected her daughter Tory from St Columba’s School just after 4pm and was driving home.She said she saw a small blue car close to her house and it was “like a rocket.”Bot herself and her daughter took in a sharp breath as they realised the car was not going to take a bend in the road.“I was scared for myself and Tory. It did not make the corner and it collided with either a pole or a trailer. The car was airborne, it was nearly the height of a trailer. It was spinning in the air and I could see debris flying off it. The car then went out of sight. It was like it was blown up,” she said.She said she was speechless but eventually managed to tell her sist-in-law to call the emergency services.Garda Michelle Kelly said she had been on patrol in the area at the time of the crash and was flagged down by another driver to say there had been a crashShe outlined the horrific carnage which she came across when she arrived on the scene of the crash.She said she saw two young women lying on the ground parallel to eachother and that a man was keeling down holding one of the women.She said Kiara Baird had a substantial amount of blood coming from her nose and was not breathing. Gardai delivered CPR as well as chest compressions and they eventually got a defibrillator but did not deliver a shock.She was eventually pronounced dd at the scene a short time later.Maria Wallis was then taken from the scene by ambulance but was announced dead at Letterkenny University Hospital at 5.50pm despite the best efforts of consultant Gerry Lane and his medical team.Garda Forensic Collision Investigator, Gerry McCauley, said he could not give an exact speed the car was traveling at but confirmed it was “considerably over the speed limit.”He revealed that the car hit a lamppost and was then thrown 109 feet into the layby of a nearby yard.Earlier Garda evidence revealed how the car in which the three were in was in a good serviceable pre-accident condition.A pathology report on Ms Wallis said death was due to head injuries as a result of a road traffic accident.Meanwhile, a pathology report on Ms Baird showed that she also died as a result of head injuries as a result of a road traffic accident.The jury of three women and seven men found the cause of both women’s deaths was due to a head injury as a result of a road traffic collision and the verdict was per the verdict in the previous circuit court case.Coroner Dr Denis McCauley offered his sympathy to both families and said it was simply “an awful tragedy.”The mother of the late Kiara Baird, Tracey Baird addressed the court and said she wanted to thank Mr Dowd for staying with her daughter after the accident.“After the accident, there was a lot of horrible rumours especially about Mr Dowd and today we got a few answers. Thank you for that. We now realise he helped Kiara in her last hours and we want to thank him for holding her and being there,” she said.Drunk driver who killed pals says he wishes he could take back what he did was last modified: December 10th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeycourtcrashDermot DowdinquestKiara BiardMaria Wallace
