Crystal Palace eye Carl Jenkinson as Aaron Wan-Bissaka replacement

first_imgAdvertisement Comment Carl Jenkinson made just eight appearances for Arsenal last season (Picture: Getty)Norwich City’s Max Aarons is likely to remain at Carrow Road, despite reported interest from Tottenham, while Atalanta’s Timothy Castagne is set to sign a new contract with the Serie A club, while Frank Lampard is keen to keep Reece James at Stamford Bridge after an impressive loan spell at Wigan last season.Jenkinson has been deemed surplus to requirements by Unai Emery who opted to play Ainsley Maitland-Niles out of position last season, following Hector Bellerin’s cruciate knee ligament injury, rather than place his faith in the Finnish-born right-back.Arsenal value Jenksinson at around £5m and are hopeful that a raft of player sales will help boost a transfer warchest that stands at a measly £45m following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Some units sold, some houses passed in.Some houses sold, some units passed in. Some sold with one bidder, while others passed in with ten bidders.If I had to identify some areas of consistency it would be the properties with low bidder numbers seemed to stem from a internet only marketing campaign and the properties that had multiple buyers but passed in came from over inflated vendor expectation. Both of these can be managed by an experienced agent.With a solid month of pre Christmas sales still to run I believe the eight weeks will have just as many twist and turns as any Logie award-winning reality television show.last_img read more

PRI: Investors show EU taxonomy applicability and ‘optimising’ needs

first_imgMany investors trialling the EU sustainability taxonomy demonstrated that it was “operational and that taxonomy-alignment results are both useful and necessary”, but challenges remain, according to a report from the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) today.The organisation established a taxonomy practitioners group in September last year and today’s report links to case studies from many of those involved as well as relaying key findings and recommendations, topped up with PRI analysis.PRI said it hoped the output would foster confidence and facilitate implementation of the taxonomy.“The investors assessed taxonomy alignment before many details of the final regulation are in place, and before widespread corporate reporting against the taxonomy is available,” said the PRI. “Many challenges remain, not least the availability of data and potential changes to the detailed taxonomy criteria. “But it’s also clear that to optimise taxonomy applicability, policymakers and regulators need to do more” Will Martindale, director of policy and research at the PRIWill Martindale, director of policy and research at the PRI, said the investors trialling the taxonomy had been “working at the cutting edge of policy design” and demonstrated “real leadership”.“But it’s also clear that to optimise taxonomy applicability, policymakers and regulators need to do more,” he said.Earlier this week the CEO of Swedish pension provider Alecta said he thought the taxonomy would have ”a fundamental impact across the investment chain”.Martindale’s blog and a link to the PRI’s report can be found here.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. “Nonetheless, the progress made by the group is encouraging. The case studies detailed here demonstrate that the Taxonomy framework can be operationalised, and offer important insights for investors beginning their taxonomy preparation.”Most of the investors (89%) in the taxonomy practitioners group were investment managers, although asset owners such as €21.6bn AP Pension in Denmark and VidaCaixa Group Pension Scheme in Spain also participated.AP Pension tested the taxonomy against a concentrated global equities portfolio and said that it felt the case study “gave us an approximation of what could be taxonomy-aligned” but that it was limited by data availability.Advice for investors, policymakersAccording to the PRI, those in the taxonomy practitioners group saw a need for future corporate disclosure obligations to go beyond the scope of the existing requirement for disclosure against the taxonomy and consider private companies.The PRI also relayed that some investors suggested a role for policymakers to engage data providers to limit discrepancies, agree on common definitions on key terms and standardise the approach to subjective elements, while others suggested that investors should collaborate to achieve the same goals.According to the PRI, the investors also expressed anticipation of a need for significant practical and interpretive guidance for all taxonomy users as well as clear expectations from supervisors.“Supervisors should ensure that investors are able to clearly communicate the limitations of their analysis and the underlying data,” the PRI reported.Another request was for a more structured approach for demonstrating compliance with minimum safeguards and Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) requirements, with PRI noting that the investors found assessing DNSH particularly challenging due to the absence of data and the qualitative nature of many DNSH criteria.The PRI’s report also relays a wide range of advice from the members of the taxonomy practitioner group for other investors, such as “start early”, “start small”, “provide context for results” or “build ‘correspondence tables’ between taxonomy criteria, existing certification schemes and other non-EU standards”.last_img read more

My relationship with former Ghana coach Appiah still broken – Gyan

first_img “Any time I see him we will have our normal chat and our normal jokes and everything.” Appiah first took charge of the Black Stars in April 2012, replacing Goran Stevanovic after the country failed to reach the Africa Cup of Nations final in Gabon. Gyan had a hand in an impressive 22 goals (15 goals, seven assists) in 25 outings in Appiah’s first stint, including strikes against Germany and Portugal at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Appiah was sacked in September 2014 but returned three years later ahead of qualification for the 2018 World Cup and 2019 Afcon. Both were disastrous with Ghana failing to qualify for the former, while they lost via penalties to Tunisia in the Round of 16 in the latter. read also:Inter sign versatile Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan only earned six caps in Appiah’s second stint due to injuries and loss of form and managed to find the back of the net just two times. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Before the tournament kicked off in Egypt, Appiah had announced Andre Ayew as his new captain much to the dismay of Gyan. This led to the leading Black Stars scorer of all time to call it quits with the national team, only to be convinced by the nation’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo, to rescind his decision. “Honestly I think the relationship is a bit broken because of what happened,” Gyan told TV3 Ghana. “I don’t know whether it is his conscience or it is my conscience but the relationship [gap] between me and him is a bit wide because I haven’t spoken to him in a while which is a bit strange.” Gyan, however, did reiterate he is willing to talk to Appiah if they cross paths. “Normally we do talk, but we haven’t spoken in a while, but its cool,” the 34-year old continued.Advertisement Promoted ContentTop 10 Tiniest Phones Ever Made6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market ValueThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Durant told the Athletic that he’s feeling fine after learning of the test result. Earlier Tuesday, the team announced one of the four unidentified players had exhibited symptoms of coronavirus. All four are isolated and under the care of team doctors. The Nets tested the team after returning from a road trip to San Francisco, and the results came back Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the situation. The team paid a private company to conduct the tests, the person said. One player woke up with some aches on Tuesday, but the rest have experienced no symptoms. The Nets are notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working with state and local health authorities. The NBA stopped play last week to help prevent the spread of the virus, and Tuesday’s announcement confirmed that players are at risk. The rest of the team and members of the traveling party are being asked to isolate, monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team doctors. “The health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization, and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that those affected receive the best care possible,” the team said in a statement. The NBA suspended play after a member of the Utah Jazz tested positive. Since then, almost all global sports have ceased play.
