Plans for soccer park acquisition presented to Wilmington city leaders

first_img This past weekend, the Wilmington Hammerheads hosted a tournament on the site next to the Duke Energy Sutton Plant in conjunction with five other fields across Wilmington. Executive Director Carson Porter says it brought nearly 300 teams to the region. The Hammerheads host a youth soccer program currently on the site and have done so for well over a decade according to the city.“These kids and families are coming from Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro and some in Virginia and South Carolina,” said Porter.The soccer club has been working with the city for roughly 2 years to see this partnership take shape according to Porter. Over the last year, the city conducted an environmental analysis of the site.Related Article: Trump administration moves to ban bump stocksThe fields were once the Flemington landfill in the 1970’s and was one of the first brownfiled agreement sites sanctioned in the state according to the city. It is more than 60 acres with a little more than 30 developed with soccer and athletics fields including small facilities. Porter says having the city come in would mean permanent lavatories, paved parking and field lighting. All of which were too costly for the non-profit to afford according to Porter.“What we can do with double the size is 14 or 15 plus fields is we can really, we can pitch big events, big national events to come here in Wilmington,” Porter said. “And so that 300, that 275 team tournament that we did this weekend, that could be doubled.”“If we don’t have to buy the land, which would be by far the largest cost then that would just leave us with a lot more for bathrooms, bleachers, parking and all those things that you would put for multi-purpose fields and not just soccer things like lacrosse which is also in big demand,” said city spokesperson Malissa Talbert.The agreement would work out that the Hammerheads would transfer the land to the city, the city would  pay for the improvements and the soccer club would manage it over time.“I would make this analogous with the city’s arrangement with the YMCA with the public pools,” said Amy Beatty, the community services director for Wilmington.The city would get 100% of the revenue for the first two years, paying $225,000 in management fees to the club, and then the two groups would split revenue 50/50 after two years. Beatty told city leaders that the management fee still costs $100,000 less than what the cost would be for the city to manage a similar site.A sports complex advisory board would be established under the agreement. City council would appoint it and the city says it’s purpose would be to, “promote diverse and equitable use by the interested sports groups.”City staff recommended that the council vote on an agreement during their July council meeting. WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington city leaders heard for the first time this week the framework of acquiring the Cape Fear Regional Soccer Park.This all goes back to 2016 when the city approved a major bond that involved the Wilmington waterfront park as well as a $10 million appropriation for an athletic facility. The city says since then several options have come before them, but those did not score the winning goal.- Advertisement – last_img read more

The decision will be given on the condition that European citizens are granted the same travel access to the UK.The concession was supported by 502 votes in favour to 81 against. This was only achieved after the resolution of an argument between Spain and the European Council over the future status of Gibraltar.Sergei Stanishev, the proposal’s rapporteur explained that, ‘This is an important step for guaranteeing visa-free travel between EU and UK after Brexit, especially in case of no deal.’This means that travelers from the UK will be classed as ‘third country nationals’, something the country will share over 60 other countries which include Australia, Japan and the United States.  Tourists will be allowed to stay for 90 days in a 180 day stretch.Given that this is a reciprocal proposal, it means that if the UK were to introduce a visa regulation on EU citizens travelling to the UK, the same could be carried out for UK nationals travelling to the EU.Read more:The UK today – A land of fury and confusion?Brexit: UK PM says the country needs another extensionUpdate 2: UK MPs reject all options in 2nd round votesThis special waiver is applicable within the EU and the key Schengen associated countries Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.  This will be different for Ireland where a special bilateral agreement will need to be agreed with the UK.The Chief Executive of the travel association ABTA Mark Tanzer, told the UK Independent that the news ‘provides absolute certainty that UK holidaymakers and business travellers will be able to travel visa-free to Europe, deal or no deal.’Tanzer welcomed the news given that fears had been perpetuated that flights to and from the UK or the EU would be grounded because of a No-Deal Brexit.While visa free travel will not become a reality for UK travelers visiting the EU, this does mean that border checks will be stricter. While the UK Passport allows holders to travel in the EU until the passport expires, a No-Deal Brexit will no longer make access automatic.Following the plenary vote, the legislation will need to be ratified by the Council of Ministries before April 12th, the date which the UK should be leaving the EU with No-Deal.WhatsApp SharePrintlast_img read more

Statutory minimum wage and limited number of temporary workers – Żminijietna

first_img SharePrint Żmienijietna is calling for an increase in the statutory national minimum wage and for a limit on the number of workers that could be engaged on a temporary contract basis. The leftist think tank organisation said this in a press release issued on International workers’ Day. They are also calling for the obligation of union membership on temporary foreign workers employed through the private agency scheme. They believe that this will not allow the scheme to be left “in the hands of the market forces”. The organisation is also insisting that the government addresses these irregularities. They also stress that workers with a government contract and those in the private agency scheme should be paid equally, and that foreign workers should have the same decent pay and working conditions. Żminijietna is also asking for a national reform in the housing sector as they believe that it should be secure and affordable.

EarlierA group of more than 40 asylum seekers on board the sailing boat Alex operated by Italian platform Mediterranea – Saving Human have been brought to safety in Lampedusa.

The Maltese Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre had made contact with the vessel at 5.17am on Friday and made it be known that “as a sign of good will” the Maltese government was willing to allow the saved souls to disembark in Malta.  The statement by the Government on Friday reiterated that Malta was under no legal obligation to offer a port of safety.The crew of the MV Alex explained that due to the conditions of the migrants and the vessel’s characteristics, they cannot berth for the migrants to disembark in Malta and therefore asked for assistance from the AFM patrol boats or the Italian coast guard.However sources told Newsbook.com.mt that the Armed Forces of Malta were never instructed to go out and bring the asylum seekers in, saying that the agreement was at a political level. On the other hand, Italian newspaper La Republica reported that the AFM had refused Mediterranea’s request for transfer even though the 18m long sailing boat was in no condition to sail for another night with 70 people on board. The Italian newspaper reported that Maltese authorities said that assigning a port of safety was an exceptional political concession.Video: Twitter / Iason ApostolopoulosWhatsApplast_img read more

Saudi Arabia Could Block WhatsApp Within Weeks

first_imgAdvertisement After banning Viber, Saudi Arabia appears to have set its sights on another popular Internet messenger smartphone application. This time it’s WhatsApp, which could be blocked in just a few weeks unless it complies with local regulations.The country’s Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) is considering banning WhatsApp in the coming weeks, probably before Ramadan, which starts on July 9.[related-posts] – Advertisement – The ban is being considered both because WhatsApp communications are allegedly harder to monitor, and because the service cuts into local telecom companies’ revenue, since it allows users to send messages over the Internet instead of the telephone networks.“We have been communicating with WhatsApp and other similar communication platforms to get them to cooperate and comply with the Saudi telecom providers, however nothing has come of this communication yet,” Abdullah Al-Darrab, governor of the CITC said. “We will take punitive action against these applications and services if they do not comply with the regulations.”The CITC requested that Viber, Skype and WhatsApp set up local servers to allow for easier monitoring, but the companies haven’t complied. Viber was banned at the beginning of June, and the other two services could be next in line.“We gave them a week to comply and have been communicating with them since March to no avail. Therefore, this has left us with no choice but to block these services, beginning with Viber,” Al-Dabban said.In 2010, the CITC banned BlackBerry’s instant messaging system after the Canadian company refused to build a local server to let authorities monitor its instant messages. The company finally complied, and the ban was lifted.Credit: Mashablelast_img read more

City supporters have a point with the timing of this match – an early kick off after their midweek exploits against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and it remains to be seen how much that match has taken out of the players.Man City are expected to announce a largely unchanged team.TEAM NEWS:Man City team (from): Hart, Pantilimon, Richards, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Nastasic, Boyata, Kolarov, Clichy, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Navas, Fernandinho, Toure, Garcia, Aguero, Dzeko, Jovetic, Negredo.Everton team (from): Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, McCarthy, Osman, Naismith, Barkley, Lukaku, Jelavic, Robles, Heitinga, Gibson, Stones, Oviedo, Kone, Deulofeu, Mirallas.Everton have a good recent record against Man City:HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Max last 10 only)Mar 2013 Premier Everton 2-0 Man CityDec 2012 Premier Man City 1-1 EvertonJan 2012 Premier Everton 1-0 Man CitySep 2011 Premier Man City 2-0 EvertonMay 2011 Premier Everton 2-1 Man CityDec 2010 Premier Man City 1-2 EvertonMar 2010 Premier Man City 0-2 EvertonJan 2010 Premier Everton 2-0 Man CityApr 2009 Premier Everton 1-2 Man CityDec 2008 Premier Man City 0-1 EvertonMan City have plenty of points to prove – not only after Bayern Munich but after their surprise defat by Aston Villa last weekend.This is no easy tie for them at the end of a diffuclt week and I’m taking the draw option with Star Sports at around 16/5.STAR FORECAST(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)6 points DRAW Man City v Everton at around 16/5PLANE LANDS ON CALIFORNIA STREETlast_img read more
