Braithwaite: “There is no one who trains and works like me”

first_imgThe Danish Barcelona striker, Martin Braithwaite, assured on Monday that the exercise plan that the club has sent to its players during the confinement is only part of its preparation and that it will return ready to take a hole in the starting lineup. “(Barça’s plan) only constitutes a third of my training, because I have added much more. I exercise my speed and my resistance. Now I train much more in detail than before, so I will return in much better physical shape, “said the player, speaking to Danish public television (DR).The latest addition to the Blaugrana club, which came from Leganés outside the last winter market to supply the injured Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé, He returned before confinement to Madrid with his family, since he still had no home in Barcelona.The Danish international trains in his gym in the basement and runs and exercises with the ball in the garden, in addition to spending a lot of time “visualizing” how he wants things to turn out.“I have to be a starter and a top scorer. When you play for Barcelona, ​​you have so many opportunities, so there is no doubt that I see myself scoring many goals and as one of the team and league scorers. That’s what I’m here for, “he said. Braithwaite, who has only been able to play three games for Blaugrana, reiterated his confidence that hard work pays off and that as now he is working more than ever. “I will have a huge reward”he predicted.“Now there is a pause, I see it as an advantage. I know there is no one who trains and works like me. When I come back I will be ready physically and mentally, “he said.The possible return of Luis Suárez after his injury or hypothetical new signings is not a problem, on the contrary, Braithwaite describes it as “fantastic”, since he believes that the competition will do better. “I still haven’t shown what I can do. I feel like I’ve done well, but I know I can do even better.”said the 28-year-old.last_img read more

World Economy Needs Smart Fiscal Policies

first_imgFiscal policies can help support job creation, though designing the right policies will depend on conditions in individual countries.Job creation sits atop the policy agenda globally. High and persistent levels of unemployment call for a broad policy response, generally encompassing structural reform and other economic policies. While fiscal policy cannot substitute for comprehensive reforms, it can support job creation in a number of ways, according to the IMF’s latest fiscal monitor.According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), global unemployment exceeds 200 million people, and an additional 13 million people are expected to be unemployed by 2018. In order to address the high and persistent levels of unemployment, the IMF is calling for a multipronged policy response, where fiscal policy works in tandem with broader structural reform efforts to support job creation.“Under certain conditions, the fiscal decisions taken by countries can help promote labor market reforms,” said Vitor Gaspar, Director of the IMF’s Fiscal Affairs Department. “Labor market reforms can have sizeable costs. A higher deficit or slower pace of deficit reduction can absorb these costs and offset the adverse short-term impact of reforms on output and employment. It can also facilitate political consensus on reform, for instance, by compensating groups that may be adversely affected by the change. Smart fiscal policy also values public investment.”Policymakers can use targeted measures—cuts in employers’ social contributions or reform of pension systems—as part of an arsenal of policies designed to help fix some of the current weaknesses in labor markets, such as high youth unemployment and low participation in the labor force by women and older workers. Measures targeted to specific labor market trouble spots are more cost effective than blanket ones.The IMF Fiscal Monitor is published twice a year to track public finance developments around the world.Advanced Economies’ Efforts on TrackIn advanced economies, a slowing pace of deficit reduction should provide support to economic activity. Fiscal efforts over the past five years in many of these countries have helped to stabilize debt-to-GDP ratios, though the average debt-to-GDP ratio across all advanced economies is expected to exceed 100 percent of GDP at the end of the decade. Hesitant recovery and risks of low inflation and reform fatigue call for fiscal policies that carefully balance support for growth and job creation with fiscal sustainability.With continued uncertainties regarding the strength of the recovery, fiscal policies now often include measures aimed at increasing competitiveness, employment, and long-term growth. The challenge, according the Fiscal Monitor, is how to absorb the costs associated with these measures in such a way so as to keep overall budget deficit in check. This could be achieved by cutting spending in other areas or shifting to other forms of taxation.Emerging markets on guardAlthough budget deficits and debt ratios remain moderate on average, fiscal positions and risks vary widely across emerging market and middle-income economies. While immediate pressures on public finances have eased, the IMF sees lower potential growth, prospects of tighter financing conditions, and rising contingent liabilities as looming risks.In emerging market and middle-income economies, debt ratios and deficits remain generally moderate, although on average above pre-crisis levels. The prospect of increasing risks calls for rebuilding the policy room for maneuver that was used during the last few years.Geopolitical conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East could also raise fiscal risks, but the report acknowledges these are difficult to measure at this point in time.Developing countries on uneven groundAs for low-income developing countries, with a few exceptions, immediate fiscal risks are generally moderate. A key policy challenge in low-income developing countries is to scale up the provision of social public services and growth-enhancing infrastructure, health, and education.Looking forward, efforts should focus on improving fiscal outcomes through revenue mobilization, budget prioritization, and greater efficiency of public spending. Another important policy challenge is strengthening fiscal governance, especially for the growing number of low-income developing countries that are gaining access to global financial markets.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Labourer fine for unlawful possession of ladies clothing

first_imgThirty-year-old Lennox Shawh has been fined $30,000 with an alternative of 12 months’ imprisonment after he was found to be in possession of a number of dresses and ladies handbags which were suspected to have been stolen.Appearing on Tueday before Georgetown Magistrate Dylan Bess, Shaw pleaded guilty to a charge alleging that on September 9, at Bourda Street in Georgetown, he was found in unlawful possession of the items for which he was charged.Asked how he had come into possession of the items, Shaw told the Magistrate he had found them at the corner of Regent and Camp Streets, Georgetown, and that nobody had claimed the items.Magistrate Bess was inclined to enter a not-guilty plea on Shaw’s behalf, but Shaw insisted on pleading guilty to the charge.Facts presented to the court indicated that, on the day in question, a Police constable on patrol duty heard the sound of dogs barking, and upon investigating, saw the defendant jumping a fence with a number of dresses and ladies handbags in his hands.The Policeman approached the defendant, identified himself, and enquired how he had come by the items; but he could give no answer. Thus Shaw was arrested and subsequently charged.last_img read more

Communities Minister blamed for low voter turnout

first_img…GECOM says more rigid voter education initiative neededChief Elections Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield on Friday said that the Communities Ministry must take the blame for the low voters turn out at the recently concluded Local Government Elections. Lowenfield at a press briefing said that Communities Ministry shares responsibility for voter education. His comments came minutes after the Guyana Elections Commission announced that the LGE 2018 save a 36 per cent voters turn out.Besides the Ministry, Lowenfield said the political parties and candidates had a role to play in making sure that the voters were properly educated on the elections.“The constitution says we are responsible for the conduct of elections,” he said. “There is another department of government that is responsible for local government administration. And I think the education starts there, no doubt an all-round year process to keep the electorate offay with what is local government andCommunities Minister Ronald Bulkanwhat it offers,” he said.Meanwhile, also on Friday, during a joint press conference hosted by APNU and AFC components of the Government, both factions defended Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan.The Government officials lashed back at GECOM claiming that the low turnout at the polls was as a result of LGE not being held in years under the previous administration.Saying that Government is cognisant of the low voter turnout at the recent polls this year, Social Protection Minister Amna Ally explained that the administration is now seeking to re-educate citizens on the process, as they were not part of LGE for 22 years.“This coalition Government reintroduced it (LGE) in 2016.The people of this country have not yet grown accustomed to Local Government Elections.It is a hard task for us, because it’s not…it’s a long time, 22 years versus three years to break in to the electorate (the fact) that this local democracy will benefit them,” Ally stated.Ally further argued that no blame should be cast on Minister Bulkhan, as the Government “did what they had to do” in regard to voter education across Guyana.According to her, the Minister did not need to go to the various Local Authority Areas (LAAs), as a number of persons were trained to spread the message on LGE.Infrastructure Minister David Patterson also defended his colleague by saying that voters’ education was an “ongoing process”.He added that voters’ education is not the responsibility of one ministry.The last LGE was held in 2016, when a 47 per cent voter turnout was recorded. This year’s LGE saw a mere 36 per cent documented attendance.last_img read more

ANGELS NOTEBOOK Colon is sidelined, so Santana starts

first_imgBy Ben Villa STAFF WRITER While driving to the ballpark Tuesday afternoon, Manager Mike Scioscia thought he had a difficult decision to make. He was wrong. Ervin Santana, rather than Bartolo Colon, will start today’s series finale against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Colon has a minor back ailment and cannot pitch. Escobar works things out Right-hander Kelvim Escobar is having a career year with the Angels, so much so that many people felt he should have been an All-Star and there was even talk about him being a Cy Young Award candidate. But lately, he’s been anything but a standout. In his last four starts, Escobar has given up five or more runs three times and his ERA in September, is an alarming 10.19. The Angels scored 10 runs in Monday’s victory over Tampa Bay, but Escobar couldn’t make it out of the fifth inning. Escobar (17-7) allowed six runs and eight hits in only four innings and did not receive a decision. Escobar said that while he might be a little tired from the long season, his problems aren’t physical. “There’s no issue with my health, it’s just my mechanics are off,” he said. “I have to find away to get my rhythm back and I’m going to talk things over with our pitching coach, Mike Butcher, and work it out. “I know that if we’re going to get to the World Series, I need to pitch well. The playoffs are right around the corner and I need to get ready for them.” Willits needs a breather For the second day in a row, Nathan Haynes started in center field instead of Reggie Willits and while he probably wouldn’t admit it, Scioscia said Willits could use a break. Willits has played the outfield almost every day since Vladimir Guerrero was diagnosed with an inflamed right triceps and Gary Matthews Jr. badly sprained his ankle Sept. 11. And while he’s batting .278 in his last 10 games, Scioscia said his legs could use a rest. “Reggie just needs a couple of days to recharge,” Scioscia said. “His legs are feeling much better.” This and that Garret Anderson’s third inning single was the 2,200 hit of his career. … Matthews took swings in the batting cage Tuesday for the first time since he sprained his right ankle. ben.villa@presstelegram.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Colon’s back stiffened up after his last start and although he threw his regular between-starts session on Monday, he isn’t sound enough to start today. “Bart’s back hasn’t recovered to the point where he can pitch, hopefully by next week,” Scioscia said. “After his last start, his back was a little stiff and we thought it was better to give him extra time to recover. “It’s nothing major, he just woke up with symptoms that any pitcher could get after they’ve thrown 100 pitches. It’s normal stiffness and it just needs to be worked out.” Colon is 6-7 with a 6.68 ERA and he’s been off and on the disabled list several times this year. Rarely has he shown the form that won him the 2005 Cy Young Award. As for Santana, he’s been a major disappointment this season. After winning 28 games in his first two years with the Angels, a lot was expected out of him, but he’s gone just 6-13 with a 5.82 ERA. last_img read more
