Arsenal starlet has Wenger’s ‘complete support’ after mum bust-up

first_img Ainsley Maitland-Niles Arsene Wenger insists he knows little about the reported bust-up between Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ mother and Arsenal cexecutive Dick Law and has offered his “complete support” to the attacking starlet.Police were called to the Premier League club’s Hertfordshire training complex in March following a confrontation between Jule Niles, the club’s chief negotiator Law and her son’s agent, and again last month when she had subsequently threatened to withdraw the winger from an under-21 match before refusing to leave the premises.No charges followed, but Niles has been issued with a warning.Maitland-Niles is seen as one of Arsenal’s brightest prospects, having come through the academy, and made his senior debut this season in the Champions League tie against Galatasaray in December.The 17-year-old still lives at home and Wenger believes everyone only wants the best for his development.“It is basically a private matter that I don’t know really well about because I don’t know what happened, but I know Ainsley very well and he has my complete support because he is a good boy and I am sure his mother wants a great future for him and to help him,” said Wenger.“There are some incidents that I don’t know well and I don’t know why, but the boy has a perfect behaviour inside our club. There are many times in the week with me in training.” 1last_img read more

DOHERTY’S ANGER AS BANKS OUTSOURCE MORTGAGES

first_imgPearse DohertySinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said the outsourcing of mortgages to unregulated third parties must end. Deputy Doherty was commenting after, in a series of replies to parliamentary questions, Minister Michael Noonan accepted that the sale of mortgages to ‘debt factoring’ companies means some mortgage holders have been left without legal safeguards.Deputy Doherty said: “When a family or individual signs up for a mortgage with a regulated financial institution they expect the safeguards will last for the duration of the mortgage. The Minister’s replies confirm however that many mortgage holders now find themselves outside the protection of Central Bank regulations. The protection offered by the Code of Conduct on Mortgage Arrears has been weakened under this government but it should be the bare minimum protection available to all mortgage holders. “The government’s legislative programme contains a Bill entitled ‘Sale of Loan Books to Unregulated Third Parties Bill’ but the legislative programme states only that that publication is not expected until 2015. The government has recognised that this issue exist but is not prioritising it.“The Minister accepts this practice is occurring but is unable even to list the companies involved. In the context of a serious mortgage crisis this ‘hear no evil, see no evil’ approach from the Minister is not good enough.“The sale of the Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage book to an unregulated company is currently almost finalised while the mortgage holders at IBRC, who are already precluded from resort to the Financial Services Ombudsman, could find themselves at the mercy of unregulated vulture companies.“The government must publish their legislation immediately so it can be scrutinised to see if it is fit for purpose. If it is to be of any help to mortgage holders in this situation it must be brought before the Dáil as soon as possible.”  DOHERTY’S ANGER AS BANKS OUTSOURCE MORTGAGES was last modified: January 29th, 2014 by John2Share 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:banksmortgagesPearse Doherty TDlast_img read more

Aircraft technology: SA delivers

first_img3 October 2013European aircraft manufacturer Airbus delivered the first of a batch of 50 A400M military transport planes – complete with critical components manufactured in South Africa, by South Africans – to the French Air Force on Monday.Engineers, artisans and technicians at South African company Denel Aerostructures took time off work to watch the handover celebrations – attended by Crown Prince Felipe of Spain and French Defence Minister Jean Yves le Drian – via live video linkup with Airbus Military’s facility in Seville, Spain.The giant airlifter, the first of 50 ordered by France and one of a total of 174 on order, will be based at France’s Orleans Bricy Air Base, where it will be initially used for training before being deployed on military and humanitarian missions.South Africa is one of seven countries working on the A400M programme. Denel Aerostructures, the only tier 1 supplier of manufactured parts to the A400M outside of Europe, is responsible for the design, engineering and fabrication of the aircraft’s wing-to-fuselage fairing and fuselage top-shells.South African company Aerosud manufactures the A400M’s cockpit lining, cabin lining and the wing-tip, while Cape Town-based Cobham South Africa supplies the aircraft’s satellite communications antennae and underlying systems.According to Denel, the A400M’s wing-to-fuselage fairing, which functions as a protective, aerodynamic shroud over sensitive equipment located in the centre wing part of the A400M, is the largest single aerostructure component yet produced in South Africa.At the Paris Airshow in France in June, Airbus Military placed a third multi-million rand contract with Denel, for the manufacturing of the “ribs, spars and swords” making up the inside structure of the A400M’s distinctive tail section.Denel chairman Zoli Kunene said the R200-million (€15.1-million) work package, contracted to run over the entire life of the A400M programme, “demonstrates Airbus Military’s confidence in Denel and South Africa’s design and manufacturing capabilities, coupled with our ability to deliver on time and within budgets”.Denel describes the A400M as “the most cost-efficient and versatile airlifter ever conceived and absolutely unique in its capabilities”.With a cargo hold designed to carry the outsize equipment needed for both military and humanitarian disaster relief missions, a range of over 3 300 kilometres, and the ability to land on unprepared terrain, the airlifter has been “designed to meet the needs of the world’s armed forces in the 21st century”, the company says.It is also “ideally suited to the typical African peace-support missions which continue to be undertaken by South Africa in support of African Union and United Nations mandates on the continent”.SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Twitter “Fail Whale” Artist Now Selling Stickers and Wall Art

first_imgTags:#twitter#web Do you know about the Twitter “fail whale?” Of course you do – it’s the iconic image that displays whenever the microblogging social network takes a nose dive. What many do not know, however, is that the so-called “Fail Whale” wasn’t a creation from Twitter itself to decorate their startup’s “uh-oh” page, but actually the work of an unknown artist, Yiying Lu, whose image was posted for use at a stock photo site. Of course, Lu isn’t all that unknown anymore, as her fail whale was soon embraced by the community and turned into a social object. And now that object can decorate your computer or even your walls, thanks to new Twitter art from Lu herself. The “fail whale” is just one of many new wall graphics now available at LTLprints.com. There are also images of an owl, an elephant, trees and even a very Twitter-like bird, among others, all of which are offered in sizes that range from laptop-sized to wall-to-ceiling prints up to 7-feet tall. (What better way for a blogger to decorate their home office, we ask?) Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Prices start at $14.95 for the laptop-sized graphics and go up to $149.95 for the giant wall art. In a recent interview with the artist on the LTLprints blog, it’s mentioned that Shanghai-born Lu has also done creative work for Anna Sui New York, Maybelline, GettyImages, Glam Media, JWT, the Surfrider Foundation, the University of Technology Sydney, McCann World Group and LTLPrints itself. However, for many of us tech geeks, none is more memorable than that of the Fail Whale. Related Posts sarah perez A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more
