    first_imgTVNZ One News 12 May 2016Family First Comment: The first hospital pass was Prostitution. Here’s another. The government needs to stop using local councils to make the tough decisions!The aim is to get rid of anomalies that see places like Queenstown open for business but nearby Wanaka closed.Parliament’s Commerce Committee is in deadlock over a bill to allow shops to open if councils decide they should.A five-five vote on the bill means the Government has failed to pass the changes at select committee it wanted.But Employment Relations Minister Michael Woodhouse will push through with the bill, and changes, despite that.The bill will see councils develop local policies so businesses can open if the community wishes.But Labour’s Iain Lees-Galloway says the minister is washing his hands of what is a contentious issue in Parliament by passing the buck on to councils.Local Government New Zealand head Lawrence Yule says councils want to have the power to make their own decisions.READ MORE: read more

  • Football News Former UEFA President Michel Platini arrested over awarding of 2022 FIFA World Cup to Qatar

    first_imgParis : Ex-UEFA chief Michel Platini was arrested Tuesday in connection with a probe into the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, a source close to the investigation said. The French football legend elected to lead European football’s governing body in 2007 was taken into custody by French anti-corruption police investigating the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to the gas-rich Gulf state.Qatar was named to host the World Cup in a decision that triggered controversy over its suitability amid allegations of corruption.Platini, 63, led UEFA until 2015 when he was banned from football for four years for ethics violations including receiving a two-million Swiss francs (1.8 million euros, $2 million) payment from the disgraced former head of FIFA Sepp Blatter.Qatar has been accused of buying votes in its bid to stage the World Cup and a subsequent report by US independent investigator Michael Garcia unearthed an array of suspect financial dealings, many linked to Sandro Rosell, the ex-Barcelona president who served as a consultant for Qatar.Platini, a triple Ballon d’Or winner, was expected to succeed Blatter as FIFA president in 2016 before his fall from grace. He has been battling to clear his name ever since. For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

  • Leonard Fournette says last season ‘humbled’ Jaguars

    first_img Jaguars fine Telvin Smith $88K for missing minicamp However, Fournette has already noticed a change this year. Jalen Ramsey restrains himself from ripping opposing QBs Leonard Fournette was honest about the Jaguars’ struggles last season.Jacksonville went 5-11 and missed the playoffs a year after making it to the AFC Championship game. The lowly record, Fournette says, humbled the team. The third-year running back, who was selected by the Jaguars as the fourth-overall pick in the 2017 draft, also admitted the team didn’t bring the right intensity and mindset entering the 2018 season.”I think we appreciate last season overall,” Fournette said after the team’s practice Saturday. “I feel like a lot of things, individually, we all could have done to get ourselves in better shape confidence-wise coming off a great season in 2017. I think last year kind of humbled a lot of us in some ways.” Related News “You see in the way guys practice,” Fournette said. “Some guys who kind of (had a) lack of effort, they’re not showing it this year. So I think last season kind of woke a lot of guys up.”Fournette is also hoping to get back to full capacity after playing just eight games last season where he logged just 439 rushing yards and six total touchdowns.

  • Real Madrid dispatches the Unionists with a discreet version

    first_img–OUTCOME: UNIONISTAS DE SALAMANCA, 1 – REAL MADRID, 3 (0-1, at rest).– ALIGNMENTS. Photo: EFE Those of Zidane go to eighths after being tied for a few minutes (1-3)So many of Bale, who was injured, Gongora (p.p.) and Brahim for whites He spent half an hour of the game and James, with an action of many carats, put the leather on the crossbar, but there was no way to expand the account. Without fuss, but with possession and authority, those of Zidane wasted up to three good occasions not to give life to their rival in the second round. And that was what happened after two opportunities sent to limbo. To top it off, Bale was no longer in the field suffering from another muscle injury.The first one was from James, who ran into Brais at 49 minutes in a very clear shot. That was when Jabi Luaces’ team found the lamp genie in an action that the people of Salamanca will never forget. Romero took the ball in three quarters of the field, caracoleó in front of Militao and found the hole to overcome Areola.The goal spurred Unionists, but Madrid did not succumb to its charms. Those of Zidane relied on the verticality of Vinicius and the Carvajal climbs to recover the mordant they had lost until then and just five minutes later they could find so much tranquility.Brahim seizes the opportunityMarcelo focused on the area and Brahim, just entered, finished off badly, but Gongora put it in his goal in an attempt to clear the ball. From there, the Unionists got rid of the white area, but it was Brahim who kissed the nets again. This time on a personal play on the right side.The Malaga whipped with his right leg and closed a game that will be historic for a club of only six years of life. The night of this January 22 will always be remembered because – for five minutes – they had against the ropes the 13 times European champion. Blessed new format, blessed Copa del Rey.DATA SHEET.center_img Real Madrid confirmed their classification for the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after getting rid of the Salamanca Unionists on Wednesday (1-3) in a discreet match of the merengue team that solved the goals of Gareth Bale and Brahim Díaz after the scare of the locals, who came to match the tie for five minutes.From 57 to 62, the Pistas de Salamanca vibrated as they had not done in the last two decades. The visit of the white galaxy became madness with the goal of Álvaro Romero. A left-footed shot from the heart of the area that slipped through the entire Areola squad. Fear was present for those of Zidane, especially for the previous notice to Barça.Real Madrid was warned to the Salamanca turf, but soon any hint of anxiety was removed from the middle. The person in charge was Bale, who achieved the 0-1 before reaching the equator of the first half. The Welshman connected with a right leg a center of James and his shot was introduced by the goalkeeper’s stick.The goal, which was not celebrated by the ‘Cardiff Express’, served to appease the spirits of the Unionists and also those of all the noisy local stands. In fact, that launch of Bale gave more dominance in the final meters and Benzema forgave the second after a shot that hit the side of the net. UNIONISTS: Brais; Gallego, Zubiri, Ayoze (Amouzou, min. 86), Góngora, Piojo; Javi Navas (Diego González, min. 80), Guille Andrés, De la Nava, José Ángel; and Garrido (Romero, min. 55).REAL MADRID: Areola; Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Valverde, James (Isco, min. 80); Vinicius, Bale (Brahim, min. 53) and Benzema (Jovic, min. 75).– GOALS:0 – 1, min. 18, Bale.1 – 1, min. 57, Romero.1 – 2, min. 62, Gongora, in own goal.1 – 3, min. 92, Brahim.–REFEREE: Melero López (C.
