SHAUN KELLY – “IT’S DO OR DIE FOR US IF WE’RE TO AVOID RELEGATION”

first_imgSOCCER: Former Hearts FC and Dundalk star Shaun Kelly says Limerick can’t lose their crucial clash with Galway United tonight. Limerick have enjoyed a sensational renaissance in the past few months winning SIX games on the bounce to breath life back into their campaign.They looked dead and buried and were odds-on for relegation. However, since July they’ve embarked on an incredible run which has given them a fighting chance.Kelly re-joined Limerick in July after falling out with Derry City manager Peter Hutton.The Donegal man has been in great form – but says results have gone against them over the last few weeks – and said they simply can’t afford to lose tonight.Kelly told Donegal Daily, “We’ve went on a great run and that has given us a good chance, but we’ve still got a massive job to do in order to beat the drop. “We can’t lose tonight, it’s as simple as that, it really is do-or-die time.“I believe we can win, and I think if we do win we’ll stay up.“But away to Galway is a massive test and in order for us to win – we’ll need to be at our very best from the get go.“We’re all relishing the challenge and we know the importance of this fixture and retaining our Premier Division status for next season.SHAUN KELLY – “IT’S DO OR DIE FOR US IF WE’RE TO AVOID RELEGATION” was last modified: October 9th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:newsSportlast_img read more

Barrick Gold takes writedown on Peruvian mine beats expected adjusted earnings

first_imgTORONTO – Barrick Gold Corp. has reported a net loss of US$412 million for the third quarter, well below the US$99 million in net income expected by analysts, after taking a US$405 million impairment charge at a Peruvian mine.The Toronto-based company took the writedown at Lagunas Norte after results from a study on a type of ore treatment led it to shelving the treatment option.Adjusted net earnings for the quarter ending Sept. 30, however, amounted to US$89 million or eight cents per share, above the US$62.7 million or five cents per share expected by analysts, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.The company reported a net loss of US$11 million for the third quarter last year, and an adjusted net income of US$200 million.Third quarter revenue totalled US$1.84 billion, in line with analyst expectations, but down from the US$2 billion it pulled in for the same quarter last year.In September, the company announced a proposed C$7.9-billion takeover of Randgold Resources that would firmly return its status as the world’s largest gold mining company.Companies in this story: (TSX:ABX)last_img read more

Colorado jurys pot verdict may discourage similar cases

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – A Colorado jury likely threw cold water on future legal challenges against cannabis companies by homeowners who consider filing racketeering lawsuits alleging proximity to pot operations hurts their property values, analysts and industry lawyers said Thursday.A federal jury in Denver on Wednesday rejected claims involving the odour from a pot farm made in a case that was closely watched by the marijuana industry.It was the first such lawsuit to reach a jury. Three others are pending in California, Massachusetts and Oregon.“The big takeaway is that the verdict is likely to curb the enthusiasm for bringing these lawsuits in the future,” Vanderbilt University law professor Rob Mikos said.He said it’s easy to show marijuana companies are violating federal laws against pot, but the Colorado verdict shows the difficulty In proving actual harm.“There was a thought that this would be easy money,” Mikos said about such claims.Congress created the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act — better known as RICO — to target the Mafia in the 1970s. It allowed prosecutors to argue that leaders of a criminal enterprise should pay a price along with lower-level defendants.The law also allows private parties to file lawsuits claiming their business or property has been damaged by a criminal enterprise. Those who can prove it can be financially compensated for damages plus attorneys’ expenses.Scott Schlager, a lawyer who filed a similar lawsuit against a Cambridge, Massachusetts, dispensary agreed with Mikos, saying racketeering lawsuits are expensive to litigate.“They shouldn’t be the next cottage industry,” he said. “There is a lot of uncertainty.”Schlager said the Denver verdict will have no effect on his case because the two legal actions have important differences.The Colorado plaintiffs complained that a farm’s odour lowered their property value by about $30,000.Schlager’s clients in Harvard Square argue that the stigma of a marijuana dispensary in the upscale business district lowered property values by $29 million.California attorney Ken Stratton, who represents a pot farmer being sued by eight homeowners near Petaluma, California, in the heart of wine country, said he was surprised the Denver case reached a jury.“I think we’ll see more and more of these knocked out before they go to trial,” Stratton said. “The racketeering law wasn’t meant to litigate land disputes.”He also predicted the Denver verdict will make other lawyers and disgruntled neighbours look elsewhere to settle their disputes with marijuana operations.He said showing that cannabis operations impact land prices is difficult, especially if the homeowners are speculating rather than arguing they lost money in actual sales.Emma Quinn-Judge, a Boston lawyer defending the Cambridge dispensary, agreed that showing harm is the biggest hurdle.“If you know anything about Cambridge home prices then you know that arguing their value has dropped $29 million is laughable,” she said.last_img read more

Kakoli’s road show garners stellar response in Barasat

first_imgKolkata: Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, the outgoing Trinamool Congress MP from Barasat who is contesting the elections from the same seat for the third time, took out a massive road show in Barasat on Sunday morning in a bid to woo the voters.The road show, which was started from the Lokenath Temple on Barasat-Barrackpore Road, saw a huge surge of people as it went past various important places under her constituency. As the road show advanced, hundreds of Trinamool Congress supporters joined the rally, thereby contributing to the length of it.

A dance troupe also participated in the campaign. People congregated in large numbers on both sides of the road to catch a glimpse of Ghosh and the beautifully decorated tableaus that took part in the election rally. Ghosh was seen making her vote appeal to the people gathered on the road and also to those found standing on the balconies of their houses situated on the road. Ghosh waved her hands at the voters who readily reciprocated the gesture.

In response to media questions, Ghosh said that Trinamool Congress candidates nominated by her party Supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will win in all the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state. “Mamata Banerjee is a great source of inspiration for me. She is doing very hard work while moving from place to place, setting examples for all of us. We should also toil hard taking lessons from her. Bengal has seen an unprecedented surge in development works ever since Banerjee became the Chief Minister,” Ghosh said. “All the 42 TMC candidates who are in the fray having the blessings of Mamata Banerjee, will come out victorious. We are getting tremendous response from the people who are extending their support to carry out the development works in the state,” Ghosh maintained. Reacting sharply to the comment of Special Observer Ajay V Nayak, she said: “It was a dark age for Bengal when the Left Front government used to rule the state. After becoming the Chief Minister, Banerjee restored the rule of law. Law and order situation is properly maintained here now and hence women can safely move from one place to another, even during late night.”last_img read more
