Ronaldo expected to plead guilty in tax fraud case today in

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo is expected to enter a guilty plea to tax charges during his time at Real Madrid for a suspended prison sentenceThe Portuguese superstar is set to arrive at Madrid later today to attend a court hearing over accusations that he defrauded the government over income through image rights.Ronaldo is accused of using shell companies outside of Spain to hide the earnings he made from 2011 to 2014, which generates up to €14.7m.Despite the 33-year-old having protested his innocence on the matter since 2017, the investigation remains ongoing and the Juventus forward will now have to appear before a judge today.Sky Sports reports that a deal has been struck with Spain’s state prosecutor and tax authorities, which will see Ronaldo plead guilty in exchange for a suspended two-year sentence.Spanish law dictates that first-time offenders can receive suspended sentences for two years or less, which means Ronaldo will not have to go to jail.However, he will be expected to pay up to nearly €19m in fines as a result of this arrangement.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.The hearing today in the Spanish capital will likely not last long with Ronaldo expected to appear in person after turning down the option of attending the court via video conference.Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid team-mate Xabi Alonso will also be at the courts today to answer to charges related to tax fraud of around €2m between 2010 to 2012 from image rights.Alonso previously spoke about the case in March and announced his confidence that he will be found innocent.“My tax situation? I am calm and I believe I have done everything right, step by step, I trust that this will end well,” said AlonsoBut the 37-year-old Spaniard, who played for Real between 2009 to 2014, could have up to five years in prison and a fine of €4m.Lionel Messi, Jose Mourinho, Javier Mascherano, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Alexis Sanchez, Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao have all faced similar charges in Spain in recent years.last_img read more

Battle Ground jazzed for competition

first_imgBattle Ground lay fairly still at 7 a.m. Wednesday. Commuter traffic has just started clogging the highway.But inside the band room at Battle Ground High School, young musicians were already hard at work. The students of the advanced jazz band tuned up their instruments in a cacophony of horns, drums and piano.Then band director Greg McKelvey — a well-worn T-shirt pronouncing “SWING!” on his lanky frame — raised his arms. When he lowered his hands, the tall man seemed to physically pull the sweet opening notes of Duke Ellington’s “All Too Soon” out of the students in front of him.Rehearsal was under way for the big event.o What: Clark College Jazz Festivalo When: Bands compete 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Finals and special performances follow.o Where: Gaiser Hall, enter through Penguin Union Building, Fort Vancouver Wayo How much: $5 per day, free to children under 12 and Clark College staff and students.Student jazz ensembles from Clark County and beyond will be competing at the Clark College Jazz Festival Thursday through Saturday. The festival will feature about 60 high and middle school bands, some of which are considered to be among the best in the country. In honor of the festival’s 50th anniversary, an all-star big band assembled of three generations of festival alumni will perform twice during the event.On each day of the festival, high school bands will play for judges during the day. Their scores are tallied, and the three best bands each day come back for an evening performance that serves as each division’s final round, said Richard Inouye, director of the festival and of Clark College’s bands.Separately, judges keep their ears sharp throughout the event to pick out a winner for the Sweepstakes Trophy, which is awarded at the end of the three days. That winner often comes from the ranks of each day’s finalists, although that is not a requirement, Inouye said. The selection for that award is based on the judges’ overall impression of a group, but could also come after a particular soloist stood out, he said.last_img read more

IBT Media Splits Newsweek Into Separate Entity Lays off 30 Staffers

first_img Parent company IBT Media announced Thursday a corporate restructuring that will see Newsweek spun off into its own operational entity led by editor-in-chief Jim Impoco. “Over the past few months we have been strategically restructuring the company in order to adapt to the changes in the market and to insure IBT Media has a strong path to continued growth,” wrote Uzac and CCO Jonathan Davis in a staff memo back in March. “In these ever shifting and challenging times within our industry, we are responsible for sustaining and reinventing our company as best we can.” Laid off employees who do not find new employment in the next two weeks will be entitled to modest severance packages, according to Politico. Joining Learmonth are deputy editor of media and culture Christopher Zara; tech editor David Gilbert; personal finance editor Lauren Lyons Cole; and several reporters. An IBT Media spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment. Most of the departures appear to be confined to International Business Times, whose tech, media and culture editor Michael Learmonth is among those departing from the company. In this case, that means layoffs. The company let go more than 30 staffers Thursday afternoon, Politico reports.center_img The layoffs come just three months after IBT Media’s last round of cuts, when at least 15 employees were let go. Those layoffs also centered around International Business Times. Unlike in March, Newsweek appears to be affected, as well. Newsweek and International Business Times are splitting up — sort of. Evidently, that restructuring continues. It’s been an interesting year for the ten-year-old company, which purchased Newsweek in 2013 before resurrecting its print edition several months later. In February, Politico reported discord within the company regarding missed payments to employees. International Business Times will be integrated with IBT’s other brands, including Medical Daily, iDigitalTimes, Fashion Times, and the Latin Times. That entity will be led by International Business Times editor-in-chief Dayan Candappa. The reorganization, according to CEO Etienne Uzac, is all about driving efficiencies.last_img read more

Law enforcements denial of arrests a serious inhuman act BNP

first_imgBNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Friday said the denial of facts by law enforcement after picking up many opposition leaders and activists is a serious inhuman act, reports news agency UNB.In a statement, party senior joint secretary Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also alleged that law enforcers have become desperate to eliminate opposition parties with state patronage.The statement was issued as Jatiyatabadi Swechchasebak Dal’s Sirajganj district town unit convener Sanwar Hossain Sanu remained missing since he was “picked up” by law enforcers.Rizvi expressed deep concern as he said law enforcers are not admitting the arrest of Sanu.“The Awami League government has made the denial a culture.”He said the government has started indulging in enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings, arresting opposition leaders and activists in false cases and other cruel acts out of its unknown fear of losing power.“Family members and the BNP leaders and activists are deeply worried over the incident of Sanu’s missing,” Rizvi said.The BNP leader demanded the law enforcers ensure the safe and immediate return of the Swechchasebak Dal leader to his family.last_img read more

EidulFitr celebrated

first_imgTwo children embrace after Eid congregation at National Eidgah. Photo: Prothom AloThe Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest religious festival of Muslims, was celebrated in the country on Wednesday amid religious fervour and enthusiasm after a month-long fasting, reports UNB.The day of this year’s Eid was decided after much deliberation on Tuesday night.Initially, the National Moon Sighting Committee said the Shawwal moon had not been sighted in the country. However, it held a second meeting after reassessing the information and decided to celebrate the Eid on Wednesday.However, the celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr was dampened by incessant rainfall since the morning.On this day, people usually go out in a festive mood but the downpour forced many to stay indoors. Many areas in the capital went under water.In Dhaka alone, 36.6mm rainfall was recorded between 6:00am and 9:00am. The rain was attributed to the influence of a trough of westerly low over Bangladesh and adjoining areas.In the capital, the main congregation was held at the National Eidgah on the High Court premises at 8:30am. President Abdul Hamid joined the Eid jamaat.Five more congregations were held at the National Mosque.There were arrangements at the National Eidgah and the National Mosque for women to offer Eid prayers alongside men.Across Bangladesh, Muslims held Eid congregations in eidgahs, mosques and open spaces.This year, Gor-e-Shahid Baro Maidan in Dinajpur and Sholakia Eidgah in Kishoreganj hosted two of the largest Eid congregations in the country.While 600,000 devotees took part in the Eid-ul-Fitr jamaat at Gor-e-Shahid Maidan, the number of devotees was 500,000 in Sholakia, claimed organisers.President Abdul Hamid and his spouse Rashida Khanom hosted a reception at Bangabhaban on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.The national flag was hoisted atop government and non-government office buildings. The main city streets and road islands were decorated.Television channels and radio stations aired special programmes on the occasion.Special diet was served in hospitals, jails, government children homes, centres for persons with disabilities, shelter homes, orphanages, vagrant welfare and destitute welfare centres.last_img read more

Harris County Jury Delivers Guilty Verdict for Jordanian Man in Honor Killings

first_img Share Photo: Wikimedia CommonsOn Thursday, July 26, 2018, a Harris County jury delivered a guilty verdict for Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan. The verdict ended a death penalty trial where the Jordanian immigrant was accused of enlisting his wife and son to commit a pair of “honor killings.”A Jordanian immigrant could face the death penalty after a Harris County jury convicted him of killing his daughter’s American husband and an Iranian women’s rights activist in what prosecutors described as “honor killings.”Prosecutors say Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan was enraged when Nesreen Irsan left home to marry a Christian and convert to Christianity, so he orchestrated the killings of his son-in-law and his daughter’s close friend who had encouraged the marriage.“Honor and shame, that’s what this is all about,” special prosecutor Anna Emmons told jurors. “You heard him say honor is a big deal to him. And the only way to clean that honor is to kill.”Irsan’s trial in Houston lasted five weeks, but jurors deliberated for just 35 minutes Thursday before convicting him in the deaths of Coty Beavers and Gelareh Bagherzadeh, according to the Houston Chronicle . A sentencing hearing was set to begin Friday. Irsan faces life in prison or the death penalty.Irsan testified that his daughter caused his family pain after running away to marry Beavers, and that Bagherzadeh had encouraged the union.Nesreen Irsan testified that her father forbade her from dating Christians. She said she went to court to obtain a protective order to stop her family from harassing her after she moved in with Beavers.Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan acknowledged that he violated the protective order by continuing to call his daughter and drive near Beavers’ home. But he said he was concerned his daughter was on drugs and making bad decisions.Among the nearly 100 witnesses in the trial was Irsan’s wife, Shmou Alrawabdeh, who testified last week that her conservative Muslim husband believed he had to kill Beavers to restore his honor. She told the jury that Irsan sneaked into Beavers’ apartment and shot him to death.Alrawabdeh was also charged in the case, but she pleaded guilty to a lesser kidnapping charge in exchange for testifying against Irsan.Irsan alleged in his testimony that his son, Nasim Irsan, was selling drugs and had attempted to poison him. Nasim Irsan, 24, is being held in Harris County jail on capital murder charges in the two slayings.last_img read more

Seismic data suggests slow slip events may presage larger earthquakes

first_img © 2016 More information: N. Uchida et al. Periodic slow slip triggers megathrust zone earthquakes in northeastern Japan, Science (2016). DOI: 10.1126/science.aad3108AbstractBoth aseismic and seismic slip accommodate relative motion across partially coupled plate-boundary faults. In northeastern Japan, aseismic slip occurs in the form of decelerating afterslip after large interplate earthquakes and as relatively steady slip on uncoupled areas of the subduction thrust. Here we report on a previously unrecognized quasi-periodic slow-slip behavior that is widespread in the megathrust zone. The repeat intervals of the slow slip range from 1 to 6 years and often coincide with or precede clusters of large [magnitude (M) ≥ 5] earthquakes, including the 2011 M 9 Tohoku-oki earthquake. These results suggest that inherently periodic slow-slip events result in periodic stress perturbations and modulate the occurrence time of larger earthquakes. The periodicity in the slow-slip rate has the potential to help refine time-dependent earthquake forecasts. Scientists the world over have for years been searching for a way to predict when an earthquake will strike, with enough certainty to warn people in the area. To date such efforts have come up empty, though much has been learned in the process. In this new effort, the researchers report that they believe they may have found a possible indicator of an impending quake, and it is based on what are known as slips, small underground movement similar to earthquakes, but which happen so slowly that they don’t cause damage or even register on seismic monitors—the only way to detect them is to use GPS equipment.To come to these conclusions, the researchers analyzed seismic data for Japan’s two largest islands, going back to 1984. Doing so led to the identification of 1,500 instances where there appeared to be a pattern of repetition—that allowed them to estimate the speed at which the tectonic plates below were moving. They then used statistics to correlate slippages with non-repeating measurable quakes with a magnitude of 5 or higher. Doing so revealed that there appeared to be a speedup in slippage just prior to major earthquakes. The team also looked at GPS data, which can actually be used to measure tectonic shifting, and report that it matched the rates they had calculated earlier.The team acknowledges that much more work needs to be done before it can be confirmed that GPS monitoring devices could one day offer an early warning system, but suggest their research shows that there is the potential for such an outcome.

Credit: Wikipedia (—A team of researchers, two from Tohoku University in Japan and two from the University of California in the U.S., has found evidence that suggests that a speedup in small underground deformations may occur prior to larger earthquakes, possibly providing a means for sounding a warning. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes how they pored over seismic data that spanned 28 years and which included approximately 6,000 seismic events, and what they found as a result—they also suggest that their findings might one day lead to a true earthquake early warning system.center_img Study results suggest slower seismic waves due to quakes may signal weak spots in crust Journal information: Science Explore further Citation: Seismic data suggests slow slip events may presage larger earthquakes (2016, January 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from read more

Rafa Fernández and cats on display at Galeria Valanti

first_img Facebook Comments An art gallery in central San José will exhibit paintings of cats as part of a tribute to one of Costa Rica’s most famous living painters, Rafa Fernández.The Costa Rica Country Club in the western neighborhood of Escazú will host a free showing on Thursday at 7 p.m., according to an announcement at a press conference.Fernández joined six other painters and gallery directors at the conference. The 78-year-old Fernández arrived in a wheelchair and his daughter Alma Fernández spoke on his behalf.“For my father, cats are the protagonists of pictures because they have an element of mystery and a particular personality,” Alma Fernández said.Fernández was born in San José in 1935, growing up with dreams of being a bullfighter, according to Galeria Valanti’s biography. Fernández’s work first appeared at a show in 1954 at the National Theater in central San José. He was internationally acclaimed by the 1970s, with his work appearing in galleries in the U.S., Europe and other parts of Latin America.The subjects of most of Fernández’s paintings are women, and his work includes both portraits and full figures. A gallery can be found here.One of the other artists whose work will be displayed, Karen Yu, agreed with Fernández that every cat has a different personality.“They are life companions in everything,” Yu said. “It is an inspiring theme to have an animal to work with.”The cat gallery paintings include realistic and somber works such as an image of cats in cages. Other works are of a more playful tone, including a parody of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” with cats cast in the roles of Jesus and his disciples. Galeria Valanti has more information on the exhibition on its website.Francisco Munguía, the painter of “The Last Supper” parody, confessed to having a deep affection for animals, noting he lived with 22 dogs and two cats. “For me, cats have a very surprising dynamic with dogs, eating with the dogs,” Munguía said. “This work is a tribute to that life.”Note: An earlier version of this story mistakenly reported that the exhibition was at Galeria Valenti in Barrio Escalante. Manuel Munguía poses beside his “La Ultima Gatuna” at the Costa Rica Country Club in Escazú on Thursday. No related posts. Alberto Fontlast_img read more

New guidebook helps visitors appreciate Costa Ricas capital

first_imgCelebrating San José, one decent cup of coffee at a time. Courtesy Michael MillerIn the guidebook world, you have to be gutsy to title your book “The Real San José.” Gritty travelers are always looking for the “real” experience in exotic places, but what they mean is “deep,” “authentic,” and “not touristy.” Calling your own perspective “real” implies that everyone else is fake, or at least delusional. Such a bold name requires some seriously good advice.Thankfully, U.S. author Michael Miller has done a commendable job of describing San José. The book is compact, conversational, and even has color photographs. Its 137 pages are divided into tidy chapters (“Your Passport,” “Finding a Pharmacy”), and every one is useful.There are plenty of field guides to Costa Rica, and San José always earns some ink. But Miller places all his focus on the downtown area, pinpointing the best museums, restaurants, markets, and cafés the city has to offer. After 25 years of regular visits to Cota Rica, Miller says he was inspired to write the book as a kind of retort: “I recently read a blog entry written by a high-maintenance young woman from New York City… She had spent a whole 24 hours in San José and she wrote about the city with an air of great disdain.”Miller concedes that Costa Rica’s capital is “dirty, noisy, and chaotic,” but his affection for the historic neighborhoods shines through. What is striking about Miller is his earnest tone: In his bio, Miller describes himself as a well-traveled, business-savvy Vietnam veteran who divides his time between Costa Rica and Florida. Where others might write “The Real San José” in the noirish style of Vice magazine, Miller sounds like a friendly neighbor offering advice over a picket fence.Costa Rica is known for producing some of the world’s best coffee. So, you would think that every place you go in San José would have great coffee. Wrong… If you are someone who appreciates a really good cup of coffee, you will want to know where to look. This is a short list of a handful of coffee shops in Downtown San José with excellent coffee. The first one might surprise you.Indeed, McDonald’s is a surprise, and it’s the kind of recommendation that Condé Nast would never make. But Miller is unafraid to suggest the world’s most infamous chain restaurant, because he has tasted the coffee, and the flavor impressed him. Mark it down.It is no secret that most tourists – even intrepid backpackers – flee San José as soon as they can, and no one should blame them. Costa Rica is too big, too diverse, for one-time visitors to spend a lot of time in a crowded city full of cigarette butts. But for students, perma-tourists, and recurring guests, “The Real San José” is very helpful. Miller doesn’t dedicate pages to Escazú or San Pedro, just places walkable from the Plaza de la Cultura. He makes a compelling argument that San José is worth exploring.For this reader, the most vital chapter was “Laundry.” As someone who constantly gets stuck in foreign capitals with a rucksack full of rancid clothes, I appreciated his directions to a local lavandería. As for dry-cleaning: “It might be cheaper if you fly back to Miami. I’m not joking.” Now that’s keeping it real.“The Real San José” is available in area bookstores. For the Kindle edition, see the book’s Amazon listing.

South Korean textile company opens new plant in Costa Rica

first_imgSouth Korean companySAE-A Spinning launched operations in Costa Rica on Thursday with the inauguration of its yarn spinning plant in the province of Cartago, with an initial investment of just over $55 million.The new Costa Rica plant employs 270 workers and produces cotton yarn for export, mainly to other countries in North and South America.President Luis Guillermo Solís attended the inauguration. He said the new operation strengthens efforts to generate economic prosperity and more jobs for Costa Rica.“Today this modern facility launches operations hand in hand with hundreds of Costa Ricans whose talent and dedication will help this company grow,” he said.The company’s Chairman Woong-Ki Kim said the plant would also create more opportunities for new and existing businesses here.“Our commitment to the people of Costa Rica is unwavering and we only expect a steady growth in coming months and years,” he said at the opening ceremony.SAE-A Spinning is a subsidiary of Seoul-based Sae-A Trading Co., a company that currently has more than 60,000 employees at 41 operations in 10 countries. Its total textile exports in 2014 exceeded $1.5 billion, while total sales of its other operations were over $2 billion.The opening of the South Korean company boosts Costa Rica’s textile sector, which in past decades has been affected by the relocation and closure of several multinational companies.That upward trend could continue as Canadian company Gildan Activewear announced plans last year to install a manufacturing plant in the province of Guanacaste.Gildan’s choice of Costa Rica followed several months of negotiations between the company and the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE).Total investment and an exact date for the start of construction on the Gildan plant have not been made public, but CINDE reported in May that Gildan’s new Guanacaste facility would create some 1,000 new jobs for the province.

Blanket Bay tops 2010 Gold List for Asia Australia and Pacific region

first_imgSource = Blanket Bay Hard on the heels of being named the world’s third greatest accommodation property by Readers’ Choice 2009 Top 100, New Zealand’s leading luxury resort has struck gold. Conde Naste Traveler’s 2010 Gold List ranks Glenorchy’s Blanket Bay as the second-highest scoring property in the world and the top-scoring hotel in Asia, Australia and Pacific nations.The January 2010 edition of the prestigious magazine features in depth ratings of the world’s best places to stay and Blanket Bay received perfect scores of 100 out of 100 in three categories; rooms, service and location.  Food and property design scored 95.8 and 95.7 respectively to achieve an overall score of 98.3 – the second highest score of any property in the world.  The magazine describes Blanket Bay as an “upscale lodge in a perfect-scoring location between the Southern Alps and Lake Wakatipu …with perfect-scoring rooms that have stone fireplaces, recycled timber, floor-to-ceiling arched windows, antler chandeliers, and very welcoming hot tubs. The menu at the restaurant… emphasizes local meats like Canterbury duck leg and Angus beef. Perfect-scoring staff never miss a thing.” Tourism New Zealand Regional Manager for North America Annie Dundas says the Blanket Bay achievement is phenomenal. “To be listed yet again as Gold Standard in this magazine shows a huge commitment to the highest possible standards.  It’s tantamount to saying this property is consistently one of the world’s best.”Blanket Bay was one of only two properties in New Zealand to have made the 2010 Gold List.  Huka Lodge also features with an overall score of 90.8. Ms Dundas says ratings are vitally important for promoting New Zealand to high end travellers, particularly as New Zealand doesn’t have the big brand hotel properties often favoured by high end American travellers.“Blanket Bay and Huka Lodge are demonstrating to the world that New Zealand does luxury very well, only the scale is smaller.  These ratings tell consumers that we have properties that are easily the equivalent of the big brand hotels such as Four Seasons.  To consistently see our properties listed alongside and above the best builds consumer confidence.  It certainly makes our job of promotion easier and more credible.”   In the 10 years since opening in December 1999, Blanket Bay has enjoyed a dramatic climb into the ranks the world’s best properties with an awards list that ranges from building honours through to Hotel Management Awards, several awards won by individuals of its culinary team and annual places on various lists of the world’s best accommodation properties.last_img read more
