Multi Sectoral Effort Needed to Host Diamond League Meet

first_imgMinister with responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita-Headley, says the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, with the full support of the Government, has begun to explore with the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) the possibility of Jamaica hosting a Diamond League meet. The Minster was speaking at the eighth regional Investment and Capital Markets Conference, held on January 24 at the Pegasus Hotel, in New Kingston. “It is clear from these discussions that by hosting a meeting in Jamaica, the Diamond League will be able to build the worldwide appeal of athletics. It is also clear that a Jamaica meeting will be able to provide world class entertainment by providing outstanding television images,” Mrs. Neita-Headley said. Mrs. Neita-Headley argued that having the Diamond League in Jamaica would give a fair chance to top athletes of all disciplines to gain international media exposure, earn their living and have their success in major championships honoured. She noted that internationally, most track and field athletes want to compete in Jamaica.“They see this nation as the Mecca of track and field, where their efforts will be fully understood and appreciated. They want to experience firsthand, the adulation of the same fans that have cheered on the Jamaican champions and applauded our regional friends when they compete at the national stadium,” she added.The Sports Minister outlined how the government would be involved in facilitating the hosting of a Diamond League Meet in the country, citing the availability of hotels and a stadium facility.She also pointed out that promotion of the event would have to be done through the Jamaica Tourist Board, the Caribbean Tourism Organization, the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, SportsMax and other regional and international media.“The Government of Jamaica would be responsible for leading the discussion with our regional brothers and sisters to secure buy-in to the event; not as a Jamaica’s Diamond League meet, but as the Regional Diamond League meet, with the outcome being measurable regionally,” Mrs. Neita Headley said.The Minister added that to host a successful Diamond League would require that bureaucratic obstacles are kept to the absolute minimum in making the participation of athletes from all global destinations as pain-free as possible. She said this would include arrangements at immigration and customs to expedite arrivals and departures at the airports as well as ground travel arrangements for the duration of the meet.Discussions will also be held with the security forces so as to assist with the security arrangements for the visiting athletes, and the Ministry of Tourism and the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association would be involved to ensure that proper housing is available for all visiting athletes and their teams, as well as the media and persons who travel to Jamaica to watch the meet.“We have before us a real opportunity to leverage our success as a track and field super power. How we seek to capitalize on the dominance we currently enjoy will eventually reflect in our country’s balance sheet,” the Minister said.The Samsung Diamond League is an annual series of track and field meetings held from 2010 onwards. It was designed to replace the IAAF Golden League, which was held annually since 1998.last_img read more

His clause? €50m.”“Swap with Gabigol? It would be a great deal for everyone. Gabigol is a great forward and for Flamengo, who want to be the best team in South America, he would be an excellent player, precisely because of his maturity,” he added.“However, it’d also be excellent for Inter because his investment would turn into an element with the same great qualities.”last_img read more

Democrats to Oppose House Authorization Bill over Reliance on OCO Funds

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will whip Democrats against the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill over opposition to the measure’s reliance on DOD’s overseas contingency operations (OCO) account to get around the Budget Control Act spending caps.The unprecedented move follows a DOD briefing Wednesday for House Democrats that concluded, “this bill is the wrong bill,” according to House Democratic Caucus Chair Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.). The annual policy legislation typically passes with bipartisan support.Equally surprising was the announcement by Adam Smith (D-Wash.), ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, that he also would vote against the measure.The House Democrats’ opposition to the authorization bill is an extension of the Obama administration’s stance against FY 2016 spending bills that adhere to the statutory spending caps while providing budget relief to the Pentagon but not to domestic agencies. The authorization bill, which the House was scheduled to start debating Wednesday evening, would allow DOD to spend $96 billion from its OCO account, including $38 billion on operations and maintenance needs that ordinarily would be funded in the department’s base budget. OCO is not subject to the spending caps.The House bill’s reliance on OCO to shield DOD from the full force of the spending caps wasn’t the only reason it prompted a veto threat from the White House on Tuesday. The Office of Management and Budget also cited restrictions on DOD’s ability to transfer Guantanamo Bay detainees, along with its failure to adopt cost-cutting reforms proposed by the administration such as BRAC.Despite Democratic opposition, the House bill still should pass, said Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), reported the Hill. “I think we’ll still pass it,” he said. “It’s really unfortunate because it has this tradition and history of bipartisan support in overwhelming numbers.”last_img read more

Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer concept is a boxy plugin hybrid crossover

Mitsubishi Mitsubishi’s weirdly named and weirdly styled crossover concept made its official debut Tuesday at the Geneva Motor Show. Called the Engelberg Tourer, the new model appears to be inspired by the look of Mitsubishi’s GT-PHEV concept.With a boxy shape, an enormous grille and vertically stacked lights on either side of the nose, the Engelberg Tourer makes a strong first impression. It has massive show-car wheels and additional lights atop the roof, as well as a forward-sloped D-pillar. As for functionality, the Engelberg Tourer has skid plates front and rear and an opening roof box up top.The crossover’s name comes from a Swiss ski resort, and fittingly the Mitsubishi is thus pitched as an active-lifestyle vehicle. It “encourages family and friends to go further together,” the company says, and offers plentiful cargo room. There are three rows of seats inside to make transporting said family and friends possible.Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer conceptEnlarge ImageThe concept has a plug-in-hybrid powertrain good for 43 miles of all-electric driving. Mitsubishi Power comes from a plug-in hybrid system with up to 43 miles of all-electric range, with twin electric motors and a 2.4-liter gasoline engine. To improve handling, the Mitsubishi uses Active Yaw Control and brake-based Super All-Wheel Control to fine-tune how much power goes to each wheel. There are not, however, any specifics on the car’s power ratings or battery capacities.We wouldn’t be surprised to see elements of the Engelberg Tourer’s design in future Mitsubishi crossovers. And given the success of the existing Outlander PHEV, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to imagine that such a model might use a plug-in hybrid powertrain like this concept, too.
