Joshua pressed for time to secure Wilder unification fight

first_imgThe problem is, fans flock in their tens of thousands to see Joshua pulverize his opponents. Just like Wilder does, admittedly in front of smaller crowds.It’s why the potential Joshua-Wilder match-up is so anticipated. Negotiations over the next few weeks will determine if that happens this summer.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Picture imperfect: Heat fine Whiteside for ‘detrimental’ comments MOST READ View comments It’s not the first time Hearn has spoken of the difficulties in dealing with Wilder’s people, and it likely won’t be the last. He has already visited New York for negotiations but it gets complicated with Wilder’s affairs being handled by co-managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, and Haymon’s business partner Luis DeCubas Jr.Also problematic for Hearn and Joshua is Wilder’s apparent desire for a 50-50 split of any fight. Joshua believes, as a holder of four belts, that he deserves a bigger share of the pie.“I’m going to be one of the most powerful men sitting on the side of the negotiating table,” Joshua said, eyeing up his belts. “Why do I have to do all this work to have to give someone a bonus. Can I get a bonus now, do you know what I mean? Can I get a little pat on the back now? That’s how I see it. It’s a bit of a catch-22.”And that’s his problem. Joshua is in a rush to unify, but Wilder might not be. Much to their chagrin, Team Joshua might have to relent if their man is to reach his goal.Such is the demand for the fight that it will likely take place, perhaps a two-fight deal with one in America — where Joshua is yet to fight — and the other in Britain.Wilder has won all 40 of his pro fights (with 39 knockouts), while Joshua made it 21-0 with a no-frills win over Parker in which he showed another side to his boxing repertoire.Instead of his trademark big punches, Joshua used the jab behind his long reach to great effect. Parker was never allowed to get in close, either by Joshua or fussy referee Giuseppe Quartarone.It was a professional, mature display by Joshua against a previously unbeaten opponent, and it impressed his trainer Rob McCracken.“You’ve seen some of the heavyweights in the past win the fights behind the jab,” McCracken said, “and that’s what he did.”Joshua sees himself as more than just a big puncher, regularly referring his “finesse” and “boxing prowess.” He has spoken recently of the respect Floyd Mayweather earned for carving out an unbeaten career on the back of his technical skills, even if many of his fights weren’t spectacular.

There’s only a small window for Joshua to clean up the division before the belts start getting stripped off him.“I think it has to happen in 2018,” Hearn said of the Wilder fight, “otherwise we are going to hit some major problems with the politics and the mandatories. It’s just a case of if it happens next or if we fight (someone else) in the summer and then Wilder.“If they stepped up and were actually serious about the fight, and serious about a deal we are more than happy to offer them, it could happen next.

Quarrel over Mining Sites in Gbparpolu

first_img– Advertisement – The John P. Saah Family writes Mines and Energy Minister Murray (pictured): “We requested the Ministry to investigate the Class B License (MBL 2724/17) issued in March 2017 which overlapped our Class C license that was issued February 2016 and since April 5, 2019, the Ministry has not responded nor carried out any investigation in this matter. Sections 6.4 & 6.7(a) of the Mineral & Mining Act (2000) are too simple and easy for anyone to under that an overlap is a violation.” Liberian entrepreneur begs Ministry of Mines to investigate 3-year dispute with Chinese InvestorAn overlapping mining quarrel involving a Liberian mining entrepreneur, Mr. John P. Saah and a Chinese businessman, Mr. Zhang De Min, popularly known as Mr. Parker, has reached its third year since March 2017 with the latter requesting the Mines and Energy Minister Gessler Murray to intervene and investigate to avoid further conflict.The fight over the mining sites of Mr. John P. Saah Family License C against Mr. Zhang De Min License B nearly resulted to a commotion in Weasua, Gbarma District, Gbapolu County, and since then, six communications have been written to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, the latest letter dated September 17, 2019.In a communication to Min. Gessler, Mr. Samai Sheriff (the Authorized Representative of Mr. John P. Saah’s family) allegedly accused the Director of Mines of the Ministry of Mines and Energy, Mr. Samuel Wilson, of violating the Mining Law of 2000 and the rights of ordinary Liberian of the John P. Saah Family. The takeover of the mining site nearly resulted in to a commotion between supporters of Mr. Zhang De Min and John P. Saah and led to a complaint filed to the Ministry of Mines and Energy since April 5, 2019 against the Chinese national, holder of Class B Licenses (MBL 2924/17), of overlapping their operational site.The communication, dated September 17, 2019, said the Ministry’s agent assigned in that area illegally removed all the properties of the Saah Family’s Class C operating equipment area without any regard to the Saah’s Family and allowed the Chinese national to continue to work in that designated area even though an investigation of the formal complaint is ongoing by the Ministry.“For your easy reference, the complaint of overlapping within our operational area and the refusal to renew our license was dated April 5, 2019; a follow up communication was sent to the Ministry of April 24, 2019; our application for prospecting license and application for class B mining license was dated on April 30, 2019; another letter requesting an investigation was dated on May 2, 2019. Additional letters on the same reference matter were dated on July 23, 2019 and August 20, 2019 respectively,” Mr. Sheriff said.“Prior to the illegal takeover of our Class C license area, the Chinese national, with the expressed consent of the Director of Mines, called a general town meeting at which the Gbarma District Commissioner, some officials in Gbarpolu County, the mining agent and the patrolman were present. Mr. Parker informed the Weasua community people that the government through the Ministry of Mines and Energy had already turned over the John P. Saah Class C Mining area to him effective on August 1, 2019; and to our utter dismay, the Chinese national, the patrolman and some gangsters went to our Class C area and forcibly removed and destroyed the belongings of family members of the John P. Saah Family who had occupied the designated area since 1974 as evidenced by the titled deed.”Mr. Sheriff said amid the Director of Mines Samuel Wilson’s warning against ‘shovel mining’ as a risky venture, the Chinese national Class B is using ‘shovel mining’ against which the John P. Saah Family Class C is considering to upgrade since April 30, 2019 to a Class B license and use machines, but the application for upgrade has since been denied.“Our family paid for a Class C License in 2016 and has been paying taxes on time up to date and is willing to pay the sum of US$10,000 to upgrade from its Class C License to Class B Mining License and to contribute more revenue to support the government’s pro poor development agenda.“The silence of the Ministry to probe these serious and grave allegations lead us to one conclusion that the Ministry supports these criminal acts against their own nationals…because the Mining Act of 2000, Section 11.4 states that the legal owner or lawful occupant of property on which minerals are discovered shall be entitled to a right of first refusal in any application for obtaining Class A or Class B Mining License as against any third party or parties,” Mr. Sheriff said.Speaking to the Daily Observer briefly via mobile phone on Monday, October 14, Mr. Sheriff said: “We have requested and are still begging the the Ministry to investigate the Class B License issued in March 2017 which overlapped our Class C license that was issued February 2016 and since April 5, 2019, the Ministry has not responded nor carried out any investigation in this matter. Sections 6.4 & 6.7(a) of the Mineral & Mining Act (2000) are too simple and easy for anyone to under that an overlap is a violation.”Efforts to contact Minister Murray did not materialize, as his phone appeared to be switched off and, up to press time, text messages from this reporter to the minister went unanswered.However, an office staff in the office of Ministry, who begged to be anonymous, said the Minister is indisposed but pointed out that the John P. Saah’s complaint is on the Minister’s desk and is part of a plan to investigate during the Minister’s seasonal inspection tour.The staff said Director of Mines, Samuel Wilson, will be part of the Minister’s delegation including some senior staff, press and a representative of a civil society organization (national or international).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

That is how we should play week in week out and the players know what I want and what I demand for them.

first_imgThe 30 workers laid-off at a Buncrana call-centre have been told they have until noon today to accept one month’s pay or get nothing.Workers at Assetco Managed Services, who are part of a larger English company, were told the centre was closing yesterday.The first workers knew of the closure was when executives from KPMG arrived from Dublin acting on behalf of London-based banks. A spokesman for Assetco Managed Services ROI, based on the IDA Business Park at Lisfannon, said they had been left in a terrible position.“We have now been told that we either accept the situation now and get a month’s money or get nothing at all.“We feel so angry at how we are being treated. Christmas is just around the corner and we are being told that it’s tough – we either take their offer or leave it,” he said.The Assetco centre was set up in Buncrana in 2006 with grant-aid of more than €2 million. The company, is part of a larger company, Assetco London Ltd, which provides a breakdown call-out and support service for London Fire Brigade.London Fire Brigade failed to renew a major contract for Assetco London Ltd leaving workers out in the cold.Most of the London-based employees will be taken on by the company who won the new contract, Babcock.However, the Irish company have not been taken on and will lose their jobs.The spokesman added they are considering their positions and are even thinking of staging a sit-in at the plant. “We have been very loyal to Assetco London and this is how we have been rewarded.“We would like London Fire Brigade to know this and to know how we are being treated.“There are 30 families being thrown on the scrapheap just before Christmas it’s just not on,” said a spokesman.Meanwhile Fine Gael TD for Donegal North East, Joe McHugh, has confirmed the intervention of Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, who has formally requested that Enterprise Ireland, NERA (National Employment Rights Authority) and the Department of Social Protection intervene to establish the rights of Buncrana employees of Assetco Managed Services. Minister Bruton has also asked NERA to meet directly with the workers concernedMinister Bruton’s intervention followed representations made to the Minister by Deputy McHugh.Deputy McHugh said: ‘I know from conversations yesterday with Assetco Managed Services employees that the placing of the company into administration was very distressing. Initially workers were given until 5.30pm yesterday evening to agree to terms of exit with the administrators; this has now been extended until today.“I contacted the receivers, KPMG, in London yesterday evening to seek this extension, and I also sought the intervention of Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD’.“Minister Bruton has formally requested Enterprise Ireland, NERA and the Department of Social Protection to definitively establish the rights of workers and has asked NERA to meet the workers concerned.DONEGAL CALL-CENTRE WORKERS TOLD TO TAKE MONTH’S PAY OR GET NOTHING was last modified: November 14th, 2012 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:Assetco Managed ServicesbuncranaIDAjobslay-offslast_img read more

Auto rental price fix alleged

first_img“We take this matter very seriously, and with a cursory review, we believe this case is without merit,” she wrote in an e-mail. Representatives for Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group and Avis Rent A Car System said they could not comment on pending litigation. Representatives for Hertz, National and Alamo rental car companies did not return calls seeking comment. Fellmeth said two of his students at the USD Law School tracked rental car pricing online before and after the legislation went into effect. Historically, prices decline in January and February, he said, and did so in major markets outside California. Rental prices at California airports, however, uniformly remained the same or rose slightly after the law took effect Jan. 1, even though rates nationwide dropped over the same period, the suit said. While Fellmeth acknowledged that such fees weren’t forbidden by the legislation, the appearance that every company charged such fees in lock step points to anti-competitive collusion, he said. The lawsuit also alleges that the car rental companies arranged their anti-competitive pricing plans under the guise of membership in the California Trade and Tourism Commission. Already, though, San Francisco Democratic Sen. Carole Migden is readying another piece of legislation to repeal the unbundling law. Her proposal, which is still being written, would again require the 9 percent airport concession fee be included in the base rental price, said Migden spokeswoman Tracy Fairchild. It would also prohibit the car-rental companies from charging customers a fee to fund the tourism commission – and require an audit to determine how much money each company improperly made. Mike Higgins, spokesman for Assemblyman Leno said Leno saw the bill as a way to secure consistent funding for the tourism commission. “It sounds like there are issues with implementation,” Higgins said. “If there are (problems) that need to be remedied, we would look to do that.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The University of San Diego Law School is alleging that seven major car rental companies have been colluding to fix prices in California. USD’s Center for Public Interest Law is suing rental giants, including Hertz, Avis, Dollar, National and Enterprise, saying they have exploited a legislative change to get more money from consumers. In the waning days of the 2006 California legislative session, Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, sponsored AB 2592, allowing car rental companies to separate out a concession fee they were required to bundle into advertised base rates. Airports, not the companies, actually levy that 9 percent fee on renters. In exchange for the fee being unbundled, car rental companies agreed to pay $24 million into a fund to support the quasi-public California Trade and Tourism Commission, which promotes tourism in California. This contribution allowed the state to reduce its allocation for the agency to $1 million from $7.7million. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonThe legislation appeared to have no downside for consumers, but USD’s Center for Public Interest Law alleges that seven rental companies have used the opportunity to add a 2.5percent surcharge to rental fees. These funds pay the $24 million contribution to the tourism agency. And that’s not the end of it, the lawsuit states: The rental car companies are tacking the 9 percent airport concession fee onto customer bills, but they haven’t reduced their base rate by the same amount. Such seemingly coordinated activity indicates price-fixing and other anti-competitive behavior, and costs customers millions of dollars, said Robert Fellmeth, executive director of the public interest center. The suit seeks a halt to the alleged violations, restitution for overcharges, treble damages and attorneys’ fees. Lisa Martini, a spokeswoman for Enterprise Rent-a-Car, said her company had not closely reviewed the complaint. last_img read more
