Ayoze Perez completed the scoring in stoppage time to make it 3-0.“Not the first one,” Benitez told Sky Sports when asked if he knew Schar had the ability to score such a goal.“You can expect him to score maybe from a corner but he’s a player with quality and he was going forward.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, October 6, 2016 – Harrowing reports coming out of Nassau as we are told that people in coastal areas are now crying for rescues, but that cannot happen and it means these individuals will have to figure out how to survive the onslaught of now category four hurricane Matthew with its 140 mph winds. “We have reports of many people saying, oh come, homes have been compromised, the roofs blowing off or part of the roofs blowing off, and that sort of thing, and due to the high winds, medical rescue and teams were asked not to take the risk. The broad surge to all of the southern shores, I’m only getting reports from Yamacraw, Marshal Road, Harold Road, those roads in the south eastern end of New Providence, that’s where we getting calls coming in right now.” Trevor Basden There are images of vehicles submerged in the Yamacraw area; there is a nearby beach which has caused an at least 5ft tall surge to rush in. Basden explains, that it is not rain, it is a storm surge which has drowned vehicles and homes; even toppled the wall at Fox Hill Prison.“Fox Hill Prison, the wall on Yamacraw side, the entire wall of Fox Hill Prison is down, it’s completely washed away.” Related Items:calls for rescue ring out in new providence, cars submerged in water in nassau, hurricane matthews rips through new providence, massive flooding in areas of nassau The best news which we hope holds up as the Bahamas is bashed by Matthew; there there are no reports of loss of life. Trevor Basden is the Sr Deputy Director of the Bahamas Department of Meteorology and he said Nassau has up until 3 p.m with the hurricane force winds, and Grand Bahama will experience Hurricane conditions until 7 a.m tomorrow. That gives killer storm Matthew lots of time to do the dastardly to the island which is still reeling from the hits of Frances and Jeanne in 2004 and Wilma in 2005. Winds are described in Nassau as violent. Winds are described in Grand Bahama as picking up. The storm veering more west, on a collision course with West End by all appearances. In the west an evacuation order was given; some but not all heeded the request. And at best, official rescue operations will not be permitted in Nassau said Mr. Basden until after 3pm and even then the first responders are going out in Tropical Storm force winds which are risky. “How y’all holding up in this weather man, I’m talking about this weather so strong, it shake my bed; in my house.” – Cody (resident) Many lost power last night, some this morning and the images of disaster are many… the bridge, businesses, hotels, homes, water ways and historic buildings – all abused by the unrelenting Matthew which has killed hundreds; the death toll from Haiti today soars to 108. A knight on a huge truck trying to plow through six feet of water he says, to get a family to safey… we pray they make it okay. NEMA is also receiving reports of roofs flying off and we have gotten a report of doors of homes flying off. There is also, likely an unauthorized expedition to save those who are stuck – remember evacuation recommendations were made for many areas in Nassau. “I am in a dump truck right now and we are in six feet of water, South Beach when I say is under water, we are trying to locate some people who are trapped in their ceilings.” – (rescue crew member) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan opposed recommendations in the BN Srikrishna Committee report, and termed merging of all regulators into one entity as “schizophrenic”.The report was submitted in March 2013. Rajan debated regarding the recommendations mentioned in it during an industry event in Mumbai on Tuesday. Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Committee (FSLRC) report is important in the financial history but most of the recommendations are “faddish” and “impressionistic” than scientific, according to Rajan.The RBI governor points out two “fundamental areas of tension” from the report in his speech. One is the size and scope of regulators and the other is the negligence of regulators. Rajan claims the report does not give importance to the magnitude of synergies gained or lost.”It emphasizes synergies in bringing together some regulators into one entity. But in the process it suggests breaking up other regulators, with attendant loss of synergies,” he pointed out.The report suggests that laws which do not micromanage, gives regulators the freedom to fill in the details, in accordance with the changing needs of the economy.Speaking of this suggestion, Rajan stated: “At the same time, the FSLRC wants to check and balance the activities of regulators through judicial oversight. Too much of checks and balances could completely vitiate the flexibility afforded by rewriting laws.”Rajan opposed the recommendation mentioned in the report that merging of all regulation of trading will be done under one roof and consumer protection regulation under another. According to him, if it is implemented, then it will slow down the consistency and development of the market.The RBI governor said if the government wants to manage its own debt, then the RBI will not come in its way.”I don’t believe the government suffers any less from conflicts of interest in debt management (unlike the views of the FSLRC), but the RBI could well carry out the government’s instructions without any loss in welfare,” he said.Rajan was not in favor of implementing such recommendations as according to him, if something is not broken, there is no need to fix it.”As the Chinese would say, let us recognize the value of crossing the river by feeling each stone before we put our weight on it. Let us not take a blind jump hoping that a stone will be there to support us when we land. Or in American, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” he said.

Newly built Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj. Photo: Prothom AloIt has hardly been a year since the construction of the new Dhaka Central Jail buildings but the plaster has already started to crumble from the walls.The walls inside become damp at the slightest of rain and several of the doors and windows are falling apart. Many of the power poles are broken, too.The prison authorities are concerned at the state of the new buildings meant for 7,000 inmates.Inspector general of prisons brigadier general Syed Iftekhar Uddin told Prothom Alo, now that the prison is in use, it is evident that the quality of construction work has been extremely poor. “Structural weaknesses are a security risk for the inmates,” he added.During a visit on 15 July, the officials took this correspondent on a tour of the jail, other than to the sensitive areas. A new layer of cement had been applied to the walls of the administration building where the plaster had crumbled off the walls. Cracks on the walls had also been filled.The inside walls become damp during the rain. Broken windows of the prison guard barracks have been repaired. Three iron gates of the three residential buildings for the officers and employees had broken about two months ago. The public works department had repaired these gates. Two buildings for the prisoners have not been used as yet due to use of poor quality construction material.The prison officials said, the doors and windows of two of the buildings for the prisoners cannot even be shut properly. Some doors have bent out of shape. The steps leading up to the platform for hanging are excessively narrow and steep.The visiting room for the prisoners is too narrow. It is impossible to hear anyone speak properly if several people talk in the room.There are 260 power poles within the prison grounds for security. At the slightly gusty wind in April, seven of these fell. Three had fallen before this. The poles which have replaced these are of poor quality and have rusted already. Some of the poles have been propped up with iron pipes.Additional inspector general of prisons colonel Iqbal Hasan sent a letter on 5 April to the home ministry and the planning ministry asking for better quality power poles. The letter stated that these present poles were a security risk and could also cause death. However, nothing has been done.According to sources in the public works ministry, it was the responsibility of the public works department to construct this building at a cost of Tk 406 crore (Tk 4.06 billion).Allegations for shoddy construction work led to the removal of the project’s executive engineer Utpal Kumar from the project. The housing and public works ministry formed a five-member committee to look into the irregularities and faults. The members of the committee visited the jail on 19 July.A senior official of the prisons directorate told Prothom Alo, during the visit the inquiry committee members tapped on one of the walls of the buildings meant for prisoners. The plaster simply crumbled off the wall. The committee suspected that low grade cement and sand had been used.Head of the inquiry committee, housing and public works additional secretary Mohammed Afzal Hossain told Prothom Alo, “We are investigating the matter. We will be able to say what irregularities took place once the investigation is over.” As to when the investigation will be complete, he said, “We have held a meeting and will carry out a visit of the site again, then we will submit a report.”The project to construct the new buildings of Dhaka central jail was taken up in 2006 in Teghria of Rajendrapur. It was to have been completed in June 2011. The prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, finally inaugurated it on 10 April last year. On 29 July last year, inmates were transferred there from the old jail at Nazimuddin Road in Dhaka. There are about 7,000 inmates in the new jail at present.Officials of the prison directorate said that 20 construction firms had been appointed for the construction of 30 buildings. Nine buildings were still under construction.Managing director of construction firm Khan and Shams, Abul Kasem, told Prothom Alo, the buildings were constructed two years before the jail was inaugurated. Then the buildings were lying unused. “That is why perhaps the plaster has crumbled,” he argued.Director of the prisons project, joint secretary of the public works and housing ministry Shamsul Alam had admitted to minor faults. He told Prothom Alo, “There is no major fault in the construction. The public works department will fix any of the faults pointed out to them.” Then why did the power poles fall at the slightest gust of wind? He replied, “They were set up quite a long time back, that’s why.”* This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Ayesha Kabir.

Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Round Shape – Adding length to the face and slenderising the jawline is required for the round face.Shading – Suck in your cheeks and see where the hollows appear.

The recent restructure at FremantleMedia has positioned it to capitalise on digital opportunities and acquisitions in the digital sector are likely, CEO Cecile Frot-Coutaz said.In response to a question from DTVE’s sister publication TBI, Frot-Coutaz said the recent restructure at the RTL-owned producer and distributor, leaves it well placed to grow its digital business.The changes were about ensuring digital is at the heart of the company’s activities and ensuring opportunities in the sector are not missed, which is possible if there are silos within the group, Frot-Coutaz said.“In today’s market, digital, brands and sponsorship are integral to how we make shows and to the development process – the next big programming franchise is likely to have some digital element baked into it,” said Frot-Coutaz.
