A match reported to be another tough test for Atalanta.Speaking after the match, the Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini said his team will focus on winning the next match instead regretting the already ended matches that they couldn’t score.“We have to focus on the next match and can’t look beyond that right now. We always said Europe would be a great boost for the club and seeing the crowd tonight makes me even more convinced that we want to enjoy another continental experience with our fans,’ he said, according to Football Italia.“We had been preparing for the group stage, then four days beforehand were told we had to prepare for a preliminary round, but we accepted that situation without complaint.”Serie A, Gian Piero GasperiniGasperini reveals why he rejected Inter Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.The confusion is because with Milan excluded from Europe due to Financial Fair Play violations, Atalanta were for a few weeks bumped up to group stage entry, at least until the Rossoneri won their appeal and were reinstated.Josip Ilicic has been out of action for weeks with a mystery infection that kept him in hospital.“He is finally out of hospital, which is the positive thing. He needs another two or three weeks of treatment and then will be able to start training with the rest of the team. He is on the road to recovery and that’s the important thing.”last_img read more

Army Reserve Looks to Industry to Support its Real Estate Initiatives

first_imgThe civilian responsible for running the Army Reserve’s installations is asking the commercial real estate industry for creative solutions to help it manage and maintain its massive portfolio through more public-private partnerships.“We’re inviting you to come to us with any concepts, theories, solutions, even revolutionary thinking, across all operational areas — policy, contracting, private sector investments, property use, energy security and renewable energy — that will help us reduce costs while also becoming more effective in the capabilities we need to achieve our mission,” James Balocki, the Army Reserve’s CEO and director of services and installations, said at a recent forum in Los Angeles.Balocki pointed to the Army Reserve’s real property exchange program as an example of a successful public-private partnership, reported Commercial Property Executive. The program allows the Army Reserve to supplement military construction funding by swapping existing Reserve facilities with local governments or developers for construction services.For example, funds from three exchanges were used to construct a new Army Reserve Center and maintenance facility at the Parks Reserve Forces Training Area in northern California. “We’ve accomplished 33 exchanges valued at $241 million since 1999,” he said.Balocki said the Army Reserve faces challenges to keep its facilities in a ready state in case troops are needed to mobilize. It also finds that some of its properties are oversubscribed. “In those places, we need to find creative ways to retrofit the buildings without a large capital investment. That might be an opportunity for some private capital,” he said.Balocki oversees 12,000 civilian employees, manages $1 billion of acquisition, information technology, installation operations and services that support 1,100 facilities, according to the story.“The Army Reserve is in a unique position,” Balocki said. “The Reserve makes up around 20 percent of the Army’s organized units, but accounts for only about 5 to 6 percent of the Army’s total budget. While we are a model of cost-efficiency and effectiveness, we are challenged right now, as many are, to find new and better ways to be more cost-efficient and effective.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Griffin applauds bipartisan transparency legislation

first_img01Feb Griffin applauds bipartisan transparency legislation Representative: Taxpayers deserve access to information Categories: Griffin News,Newscenter_img State Rep. Beth Griffin today joined colleagues in introducing bipartisan legislation that ensures taxpayers more access to public records in the Legislature and governor’s office.Griffin, of Mattawan, said she supports the 11-bill package unveiled during a news conference in the Capitol. She said the bills will subject the governor and lieutenant governor to provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and create the Legislative Open Records Act to provide transparency to the Legislature.“Simply put, taxpayers should have unfettered access to public records, and that has not been the case when it comes to the legislative and executive branches of state government,” Griffin said. “This continues our commitment to make state government more accountable to the people. This is another common-sense approach to shining light on public servants and public records.”The bills are similar to a legislative effort that was put forth by the House last session, but did not reach the governor’s desk for approval.The LORA bill exempts some records, among them letters to and from people in the district, human resources files, and ongoing legislative investigations or lawsuits. Only one other state exempts its legislature and governor from FOIA-like scrutiny.#####last_img read more
