0 Comment

first_imgPaul Merson lambasted his former side Arsenal for their poor handling of Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation.Arsenal are set to lose Ramsey to Juventus for nothing this summer after the Wales international agreed on a deal with the Serie A champions after his contract was allowed to run down.Merson went on to call his former club “stupid” for letting an experienced player like Ramsey leave the club in the prime of his career.“It’s stupidity from Arsenal to allow someone of Ramsey’s quality to let their contract run down,” he told Sky Sports.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s yet another player after Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott. Players’ contracts come to an end then they all leave on frees.“In footballing terms, it’s criminal. It’s like buying an £80m house, waiting for the leasehold to run out and losing the house.“Arsene Wenger sorted out his contract every year but seemed to forget everyone else’s!“I wouldn’t mind if all these players were 35 years of age or older, but they are in the prime of their careers when they are playing their best football ever.”last_img read more

0 Comment

first_imgFish farming using bamboo and net fencing continues unabated in a four-kilometer area of the Ichhamati river in Nawabganj, Dhaka. Local residents suffer. The photo was taken recently. Hasan RajaA local chairman has been fish farming on the Ichhamati river in Shikaripara union of Nawabganj in Dhaka, hampering the river’s natural flow.This has caused local residents a lot of suffering.Chairman of Shikaripara union Alimor Rahman Khan erected a bamboo fence around a four-kilometre area on the Ichhamati river about five years ago and started fish farming.As a result, residents cannot freely use the river for bathing, fishing, or travelling. The life of aquatic animals is also in danger and river traffic cannot move.Residents say they have complained to the district administration.Under the authority of mobile courts, the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) has had the fence removed a number of times, but the chairman and his associates put up a new fence and start fish farming again.The residents allege this fish cultivation has been going on for the last five years. Around 600 fishermen from seven villages used to fish in the river. Now the chairman’s henchmen do not allow them to fish. They also prevent villagers from bathing in the river. When, The chairman’s men snatch away stray ducks from the river that belong to local residents.There are also allegations of local residents being beaten up and  residents on both banks of the river are leading troubled lives.There is a large bridge over the Ichhamati river in front of a bazar in Shikaripara union of Nawabganj. Under the bridge, bamboo and net fencing form clusters of fisheries. Such operations can be found in other sections of the river including Mahespur, Garibpur, and Hagradi bazar.During a recent visit, this correspondent, on Sunday, found a  bamboo and net fence stretching some 300 metres wide on the river near the Kashiakhali dyke.Local residents say such fences are there at about eight different places on the river.Speaking to Prothom Alo, a number of fishermen, including Amar Haldar, a fisherman from Daudpur, and Maron Barmon from Ananda Nagar, said they were not allowed to fish in the river for five years. Earlier, fishing on the river was their livelihood.Ali Hossain, Shikaripara bazar trader says there was a time when they travelled by launch on the river. Now, not even a boat can move on it. Because of a dyke built at Dasher Kandi, where the river originates, sand builds up in the area.Speaking to Prothom Alo, Awami League president of Shikaripara union, Mozammel Hoque, said the chairman is grabbing the river and water bodies of the locality using a “pocket” committee.According to chairman Alimor Khan at his home, the river flow is falling due to an embankment at Kashiakhali and water dries out during the lean season. Following these circumstances, the Directorate of Fisheries launched a project in 2017 to cultivate fish by dredging seven kilometers of the river. He said a 104-member committee comprising of fishermen, freedom fighters and their beneficiaries, are running the project. Alimor, who heads the committee, said Tk 1M is invested in the fish farming enterprise and the profits are distributed to the aforementioned beneficiaries.Asked whether it is fair to cultivate fish by obstructing the river, Alimore said, “The directorate of fisheries is not concerned about the flow of the river. The organisation focuses on fish production in the country.”About the allegations of local residents, chairman Alimor Khan said, “We do not torture anybody. Out of jealousy, some people spread false propaganda’.When contacted about the project, Iqbal Azim, deputy director of fisheries, , in charge of Dhaka division, said a project of dredging rivers and ponds across the country to cultivate fish was indeed undertaken.by. He also said the local administration leased out the water bodies to various beneficiaries. The department of fisheries provides the scientific and technical support, said Iqbqal Azim, adding that they provided technical assistance for the fish farming project on the Ichhamati river.He said the local administration attends to matters like grabbing, , and any hardships of local people.Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) of Nawabganj-Dohar, AKM Al Amin, said he would investigate the allegations and take action.Prothom Alo Nawabganj Corresondent cooperated to file this report. * This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam.last_img read more

Texas House Elects Dennis Bonnen As New Speaker

0 Comment

first_imgJorge Sanhueza-Lyon/KUTDennis Bonnen (R-Angleton), the CEO of Heritage Bank in Pearland, has been elected speaker of the Texas House.Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton) is the new speaker of the Texas House. The 150-member body selected him 147-0 shortly after being sworn in for the 2019 legislative session Tuesday.Bonnen told lawmakers the agenda of the House is up to the House.“My job is simple,” he said. “I’ll bring passionate people to the table, then keep you in the room until we find a solution.”During the nomination process, a bipartisan list of House members spoke of their hopes and expectations from a Bonnen speakership. Most focused on how they believe he will work to bring together a body that has become bitterly partisan in recent years.Bonnen will announce his top bills for the session in the coming days, but he’s already made it clear public school finance and property taxes are his top priorities for the legislative session.“These are complicated issues that can no longer wait,” he said Tuesday, “pressing issues that deserve meaningful results.”He also listed several issues related to Texas children – early childhood education, improving the Child Protective Services system, addressing mental health and school safety – as priorities.“This House is the possession of all Texans and it is our privilege to serve all of them with a passion, pride and a willingness to put that common good above all else,” he said.Bonnen replaces retired state Rep. Joe Straus (R-San Antonio). Straus, who served as speaker for the last decade, announced his retirement in October 2017.Several lawmakers announced plans to run for speaker soon after Straus announced he would leave the Legislature; Bonnen was not one of them. He publicly announced his intention to run at the end of October 2018. Less than two weeks later, he held a press conference to reveal he had the votes needed to win the race.Bonnen was first elected to the Legislature in 1996; this will be his 12th term in office. Away from Austin, Bonnen is the chief executive officer of Heritage Bank in Pearland.This article was originally published on http://www.kut.org Sharelast_img read more
