Injury-hit Liverpool look to avoid FA Cup upset

first_img Arsenal are bidding to become the first team since Blackburn in 1884-86 to win the FA Cup in three straight years, and to extend its record-setting haul of FA Cup titles to 13. With his team having its best chance in years to win the Premier League, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger must decide whether to rotate his squad. Wenger said Thursday that Alexis Sanchez is not yet ready to return from a hamstring injury, but midfielder Mikel Arteta is available. Liverpool are in the middle of a gruelling schedule – it will be the team’s sixth game in 19 days – that is taking its toll on the squad. Manager Jurgen Klopp is without a senior centre back for the match, as Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure are all hurt, while attackers Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho are also injured. The match comes three days after a League Cup semi-final match at Stoke, and five days before a Premier League game against first-place Arsenal. Klopp could even make 11 changes to the team. “It will be a team that hasn’t played too often together,” Klopp said. “If this is a chance for Exeter, then they have to take it.” This will all be music to the ears of Exeter’s players, whose team is 16th in the 24-team League Two – a gap of 76 places to Liverpool in the English ladder. The last time Exeter reached this stage was in 2005, when they took Manchester United to a replay after a goalless draw at Old Trafford. MANCHESTER, England (AP): It’s a match that has all the ingredients of a classic FA Cup upset. An injury-hit, inconsistent and potentially jaded Premier League heavyweight making a 500-mile round trip to a team in the lower reaches of the fourth tier with a small ground, poor field, and a recent history of shocking a top side. Exeter’s home game against Liverpool today is the pick of the games in the third round of the FA Cup, when the giants of the Premier League join the teams from the lower leagues and non-league in the world’s oldest club knockout competition. As always, the search is on for a huge shock on one of the most exciting weekends in the English calendar and it could come at the 8,500-capacity St James’ Park, which – located in the south-west corner of England – is one of the most remote grounds in the country.

The Geopolitics of Oil: The US–China New Diplomatic Race In Africa

first_imgFor centuries, beginning with the slave trade, the West has ruthlessly exploited the African continent, plundered and pillaged its resources; tortured most of its progressive and militant-oriented pace-setters, and inspired conspiracies that witnessed the deaths of many of its leaders including Patrice Lumumba, apart from toppling so many African regimes, not forgetting “Operation Cold Chop” that pulled the legitimate rug from under the administration of Kwame Nkrumah and now turning Africa into a commercial hunt for the continent’s rich oil.In the late nineteenth century, in what became known as the “Scramble for Africa,” the continent was arbitrarily carved up into colonies by the leading European powers, which violently subjected its people and plundered the continent of its rich natural resources. That is why this article under the topic the “Geopolitics of African Rich Oil’” pinpoints the failures of African diplomats on the world stage, oil as a core causes for conflict around the African continent and the US–Chinese race for Africa’s rich natural resources especially oil.    The study of international relations has historically focused on the activities of large, powerful states, dismissing the smaller entities of the international system as unimportant or merely objects and pawns of policy for the larger entities (Nohra, 2012). This truism extends especially to those entities that exist in a partially recognized limbo, neither a full part of the international system nor an ungoverned space. Yet in the post-Cold War world, following the dissolution of large multi-national states such as the USSR, these entities have begun to proliferate.The idea of an African rebirth seems to be finding more and more acceptance within international relations, but the continent representation in the international system is somehow discouraging primarily due to the unpreparedness of some of Africa’s diplomatic players on the world stage. This proliferation provides a significant challenge to an international system in which the primary participants are states, and to the institutions created to oversee their interaction. As such the study of these entities and their interaction with the world outside their borders is a study important for a universal understanding of contemporary international relations.It is international relations which has been the gateway to link the continent to other continents, helping Africa to get in touch with other continents and influential multilateral institutions and organizations to establish its status among the comity of nations on the world stage. Africa has succeeded speedily in pushing and occupying key positions in the world, but on a large scale has failed to make an impact. A great deal has already been written on African international relations and the contributions of African countries and their governments in relationship to contemporary world’s politics.In his recent book on democracy, Josephus Gray explained that this century perhaps more than any other period in human record has looked upon international relations and democracy as the vehicle of progress to establish ties with other sisterly governments and multilateral institutions and organizations. This new scramble for Africa’s resources is already engendering conflicts across the region. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, where copper and diamonds have inspired wars and mayhem, there is currently intense competition and militia rivalries over the mining and sale, a critical raw material used in mobile phones and electronic devices.The battle over oil and uranium, used in feeding nuclear reactors, according to French diplomat, Mathieu de Lesseps, continues to be at the root of conflicts in Niger and Nigeria, while similar crises would soon spread to other countries in the African region primarily due to the failures of the few privileges at the horn of political leaderships to account for resources from the oil. The connection between conflict and foreign exploitation of mineral resources can be drawn with respect to other countries, including Nigeria where Boko Haram is committing gross human rights violations. It has become clear that the discovery of significant oil and gas reserves in Nigeria’s northeastern Lake Chad Basin, the zone of the Boko Haram insurgency, is a major factor contributing to instability in the region ( Nicolas  Matthieu). The recent discovery has attracted the interest of neighboring countries, such as Chad, Cameroon and Niger, and international powers, including the United States, Britain and France. This also includes Sudan, Libya and Angola, while political crisis over lack of proper accountability over the use of natural resources, especially oil, is creating serious tension several other countries including Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Namibia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Zimbabwe.  In the post-independence era, African states became weak pawns in the world economy, subject to Cold War rivalries, and their path to development largely blocked by their debilitating colonial past.More recently, the West has choked Africa with an onerous debt regime, forcing many nations to pay more in interest on debts to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) than on health care, education, infrastructure, and other vital services combined. Finally, by analyzing the likely impact on the economies of oil-producing states, it considers whether we should lament or rejoice over the ‘new diplomatic scramble for Africa’. However let us bear in mind that the emerging of this “neo scramble” or a US–Chinese diplomatic race for Africa should be treated with some caution and that the use of terms such as ‘scramble’ and ‘race’ are perhaps being  overstated, while the economic impact of oil investments is likely to be bleak.Both the American and the Chinese governments were important in paving the way for American and Chinese oil interests in expanding in Africa. The US government used diplomatic instruments such economic incentives and military aid (Lionel de Moustier). China has proven more supportive and has provided loans, debt relief, scholarships, training, and provision of military hardware without political or economic conditionalities, in exchange for a foothold in the oil business. In turn, incumbent African leaders have identified Chinese unconditional financial resources, cheap products, and know-how as an important tool to fend off pressure for political and economic reform from international organizations such as the IMF and Western governments. China is the new ‘superstar’ and newest sensation on the African continent when it comes to new diplomatic ties, trade expansion and investments in large-scale development projects.For African governments, China’s new interest mostly has been a blessing, partly a tipping point and now gradually becoming a game changer in the geo-political landscape. Diplomatically, their dependence on Western countries is eased, allowing new diplomatic competition as in the Cold War era, and giving pariah leaders an alternative backing. Chinese aid, be it funds or otherwise,  is also popular, because Beijing asks no questions on good governance and is fond of prestigious grand projects. Several diplomatic scholars argued that economically, however, the Chinese advance has been a mixed-blessing for Africa. With China’s admittance to the World Trade Organization (WTO), it has boomed into an economic superpower of cheap mass produced exports, giving no room for African competition. But Beijing is not only interested in gaining African export markets.  Studies show  that the growing and soon to be economic superpower is not endowed with many natural resources, making Beijing dependent on mass imports of crude materials.Most importantly, there is evidence of greater involvement of the United States and China in Africa, in terms of both commercial interests and political engagement. “China’s bilateralism in relation to Africa” could undermine regional and continental institutions as “it replays the colonialist divide and conquer tactics.”From Sudan to Congo and Libya to Nigeria, natural resources such as timber, oil, diamonds and other most needed precious minerals have helped fund armies and militias who murdered, raped and committed other horrendous human rights abuses against civilians. China is taking a very broad approach and accessing the region whole heartedly,  erecting infrastructures,  building roads in Southern Sudan, Ghana, Liberia, and Ethiopia, just to name few. We are also seeing the French role in Mali, Ivory Coast and Congo; while Japan is involved in Liberia and the British in Sierra Leone. In recent times the US has strengthened its relations across the continent especially in Southern and West Africa including the north.The recent outbreak of Ebola disease gives the U.S. the advantage to enhance its relations in West Africa; the Britain and the French also enforced their presence in Sierra Leone and Guinea, while Beijing has also been active in combating the deadly disease from Liberia. Battling to overcome its own created problems such as bad governance, Africa throughout the Cold War until the mid-2000s, played only an insignificant role on the world stage in the context of international relations and diplomacy most often pulled by the nose as a surrogate force and launching pad as appeasement to the will and  pleasure of self-styled global policemen.  This is not to say that Africa was irrelevant;  but the developments of the Cold War somewhat overshadowed the continent on the global stage. During the Cold War period, most of Africa remained within the spheres of influence of the former colonial powers, which made use of the relative freedom they were given by the Great Powers to materialize their interests in Africa, but with the end of the Cold War, things somehow turned the other way in the interest of the continent.Owing to the continent’s recent avancement on the world stage to occupy some major positions in the international system, there have been calls for the continent to occupy a seat on the Security Council with an equal veto, but the  politically suppressed lingering question that arises is, which of the three African countries will  occupy the dedicated seat? Nigeria, South Africa or  Morocco, are all vying and not ready to allow or apply at least a brake for either one of the three to repesent  Africa  should the occasion arise. The continent in recent times has   been repositioning itself in the international system as far as international relations and politics are concerned, but greed for power and wealth, and by bad governance, are some of the major problems that are affecting growth and development of the continent on the stage of transparency and accountability. In the words of a French diplomat, Paul Claudel, most African diplomats lack a true representation of their countries. He argues that their presences bring no benefits to the sending state.   But a Russian diplomat, Gustavic Édupukiv  writes that most African diplomats are politically strangers to the international system.During the Cold War period, most of the Africa continent remained within the spheres and claws of influence of the former colonial powers, which made use of the relative freedom they were given by the Great Powers to materialize their interests in Africa. This situation perpetuated the hierarchical structures of the colonial past, not necessarily against the will of the African ruling influential leaders. The view of Africa as a subordinated entity in the international system was even further reinforced by the continent’s marginalization within the discipline of International Relations and world politics. Some political pundits and commentators argue that the continent was described as  less important by the big powers in the face of international relations and politics but not a day has the situation proven otherwise.Africa’s bilateralism in relation to the world in recent times has been successful while, bad governance still remains a critical issue of  major concern. As new  nations emerged, the problems of nation building and economic reconstruction loomed on the horizon and that one cannot ignore the impact of the 1960s. This was the first decade of independent Africa and it has been characterized by violence from north to south, from east to west. What we saw at the beginning of the 1960s was a precursor of what is taking place now.The Congo crisis, the secessions of Katanga and Kasai were symptoms of the malady of the continent. At the beginning of the 1960s it was fashionable then to look upon the Congo tragedy as the unique example of Belgian colonial ineptitude. Now with years of bitter experience behind us, we can say that the Congo’s situation pointed to all the issues which would afflict Africa from the ‘60s to 2000s. The Congo gave us also the first real taste of the cold war involvement in Africa. As the Congo became a battle ground of international strife, it was unfortunately the African who bore the brunt. It was once again the Congo which gave Black Africa the first indication of the importance of diplomacy in African politics. This has become a fact of life and no one in Africa today can think of resolving conflict without a diplomatic intervention and leave out militarism, which is the last course of action.But farsighted political figures, however, agree that Africa has entered a new phase of history, which is characterized by increased African actors on the world stage, with greater influences. For instance, a good marker of this change is the greater interest that the continent has received from Asian and other developing countries and the resulting competition between well-established and new actors on the African continent.Another critical juncture that contributed to the repositioning of Africa in world politics is the fight against terrorism. Virtually overnight the African continent gained new significance in relationship to the global war on terror.In light of the political instability across the Middle East and North Africa, Africa has come to be ‘of major geo-strategic importance to the oil-dependent industrialized economies,’ and giving an attention that Africa receives from actors all over the international system, the idea of an African rebirth seems to be finding more and more acceptance within international relations. Referring to the colonial scramble, which hit its peak at the end of the 19th century and the partition of the entire African continent along borders brokered between a handful of European colonial powers which some scholars see as a ‘new scramble for Africa’ emerging.Evaluating the continent’s key actors’ performances on the global stage, many observers see Africa steadily moving towards Beijing, while others regard tales of a successful Sino-African future with suspicion and point to the robustness of US–African ties.But farsighted political figures, however, agree that Africa has entered a new phase of history, which is characterized by increased African actors on the world stage, with greater influences. For instance, a good marker of this change is the greater interest that the continent has received from Asian and other emerging countries and the resulting competition between well-established and new actors on the African continent.Africa has come to be ‘of major geo-strategic importance to the oil-dependent industrialized economies’, and giving an attention that Africa receives from actors all over the international system, the idea of an African rebirth seems to be finding more and more acceptance within international relations, but the continent’s  representations in the international system are  somehow discouraging due to the unpreparedness of some of our diplomatic players on the stage, reducing them to mere spectators.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Championship round-up: Watford back up to third, Fulham and Rotherham draw

first_img1 Watford are only outside the Championship’s automatic promotion places on goal difference after a comfortable 3-1 victory over 10-man Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.Odion Ighalo opened the scoring from a corner to bring his season’s tally to 20, and Matthew Connolly then doubled the visitors’ lead by rounding off a move he started from defence.Forest’s Kelvin Wilson was sent off for kicking out at Ighalo not long after the break, but Dougie Freedman’s side pulled a goal through Gary Gardner’s brilliant free kick.Michail Antonio squandered a wonderful opportunity to draw the hosts level and was made to pay when Almen Abdi thumped in a third to ensure a vital three points for the Hornets.Elsewhere, Fulham and Rotherham’s 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage means Wigan Athletic have to win their final three games of the season to avoid relegation to League One.Rotherham dominated the first half and could have scored four or five, but were limited to Matt Derbyshire’s scrambled effort after just three minutes.Fulham fans booed their players after a limp first-half display, and it took an equally scuffed Ross McCormack effort to draw the Cottagers level and salvage an unlikely draw for Kit Symons’ beleaguered side.

Farmers seeking trustee to run sanitation districts

first_imgPALMDALE – Antelope Valley farmers are seeking the appointment of a trustee to run the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts serving Palmdale and Lancaster, stating the districts’ actions are interfering with a legal battle to resolve groundwater rights. In a “statement of issues” filed with a Superior Court judge, a group of farmers and other landholders said they anticipate asking for the appointment of a trustee to run the sanitation districts. No decision is eminent, but the judge handling the case might indicate at a conference on Friday whether the matter would be considered. “We’ve raised the issue of appointing a trustee to run the districts for the benefit of the community,” said Gene Nebeker, an alfalfa farmer and member of the group. “The two governing boards are not doing what they should. None of them are taking leadership.” Called the Antelope Valley Groundwater Agreement Association, the association includes members of longtime Antelope Valley families, including the Calandris, the Goddes and the Ritters. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Sanitation district officials said such a move is not warranted and dispute the claims of a lack of leadership. Officials said top managers are hired by a consortium of all 25 sanitation districts in Los Angeles County and that any move to replace that leadership affects all districts, not just Palmdale and Lancaster. “I don’t see where the system is broken,” said Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford, who sits on the boards of the sanitation districts serving Palmdale and Lancaster. “Just because we don’t agree doesn’t mean we should change the leadership.” The filing is linked to a controversy over the expansion of the Lancaster and Palmdale sewage treatment plants, an issue that includes the state-ordered cleanup of nitrates in the groundwater by the Palmdale district. The cleanup will require pumping of groundwater to treat it. Nitrates, which are nutrients for plants, can cause a condition known as “blue baby” syndrome among infants who drink the water. Nitrates have leached into the underground water table from the Palmdale district’s decades-old practice of spreading treated sewage effluent on barren land to soak into the ground. “This raises a legal question as to whether a polluter can establish rights based on its ordered cleanup operation,” the group said in its court filing. In Lancaster, the sanitation district is under orders to stop effluent from spilling onto Rosamond Dry Lake on Edwards Air Force Base. Sanitation officials plan to use treated sewage water to irrigate farm crops on thousands of acres the district is buying south of Edwards’ border. The city of Lancaster also plans to use treated, disinfected effluent to water parks and landscaping. In Palmdale, the expansion plan includes acquiring nearly 6,000 acres near Air Force Plant 42 for use in farming crops with treated effluent and for siting reservoirs to store treated water during the winter months. Critics of the districts, including Nebeker, a former member of a state regional water-quality board, believe the sanitation districts should use treated effluent to recharge groundwater. The critics state that getting rid of the treated effluent by using it to irrigate crops has hurt groundwater quality in the past and threatens to continue to do so in the future. District officials have deemed recharge not feasible, at least in the short term, because even if state permission could be acquired, it would require several years to do so. Nebeker believes sanitation officials are exaggerating the difficulties and time involved in securing state approvals for recharge. The water-rights litigation stems from lawsuits filed by two Kern County farming companies, Diamond Farming Co. and Wm. Bolthouse Farms Inc., in 1999 and 2001, against Antelope Valley water districts and government agencies. The companies were seeking priority rights to the water beneath their Antelope Valley farmland. Other parties have been drawn into the litigation, including large landowners, Edwards Air Force Base, the Los Angeles County Waterworks District, the city of Lancaster, Palmdale and Quartz Hill water districts, Antelope Valley Water Co. and the Rosamond Community Services District. Although not named in the various water rights lawsuits, the sanitation districts are looking at protecting its rights on three issues that could become part of the proceedings – the first is the right under the state water code to have priority on the water it treats. The second is the right to pump water in order to comply with the state orders to clean up the nitrates. The third issue is that as the districts acquire land for their expansion, they want to protect the value of that property. “Part of the value of the land is the water rights that go along with land,” said Ray Tremblay, the district’s section head of monitoring. “We need to protect our rights as overlaying landowner.” The case is being presided over by Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Jack Komar because Los Angeles County government agencies are involved.

DONEGAL TRUCKERS TO MEET TO DISCUSS NEW CHARGES

first_imgAngry truckdrivers from across Donegal are to meet on Sunday to discuss proposed charges for entering Northern Ireland.Under new regulations, drivers will be charged for staying in Northern Ireland and the UK.Truckers are to meet at the Swilly group headquarters in Letterkenny to discuss the moves. The UK road user charge levy is proposed to be introduced in April 2014; the charge requires all foreign registered HGV vehicles to pay a charge when entering UK territory – including Northern Ireland.The proposed charge can be paid as a daily levy of £10, or as an annual sum of £1,000, depending on the haulage operator’s preference.The haulage industry feel the introduction of the charge will have major repercussions for Irish hauliers operating in the six counties and transiting through them.Donegal Hauliers in particular, feel that this charge will have an adverse effect on their livelihoods, on the haulage industry, and on industry as a whole. Local representatives, as well as various media outlets, will be in attendance, with all interested parties welcome to attend the event.  DONEGAL TRUCKERS TO MEET TO DISCUSS NEW CHARGES was last modified: February 12th, 2014 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more
