We have to be ambitious and have the desire to perform well in a match of this nature, we require a great level of self-esteem and confidence. We also need to be organized and try to keep the ball.”Spalletti also spoke about his former player Rafinha, who played for Internazionale Milano last season and helped the Nerazzurri reach this competition with his football.“I will take this opportunity to greet him and thank him for everything he did for us last season in order to reach this spot in the Champions League, he was a fundamental player for us,” added Spalletti about Rafinha.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“I would love it if he could play against us, but he will create a lot of problems if he does because he has the quality of a player who knows our squad very well.”Luciano also explained why Rafinha didn’t stay at Inter last season: “His loan period came to an end and we knew that we weren’t able to make any new transfers during the summer.”“We could only work on exits from Inter, but Barcelona wasn’t interested in any of our players. We will try to make Rafinha understand that we have a good thing going in the squad,” he concluded.🎙️ | #Spalletti: “#BarcelonaInter? A possible three points will be fundamental.

PNP newly supports Service Charge calls on Premier to ensure passage in

first_img Recommended for you TCI: ‘Futile changes’, PNP ex-Chairman questions PDMs Cabinet shuffle Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 22, 2017 – Providenciales – There is fresh focus on getting hotel employees that contentious and sorely missed 100% service charge which means significantly more take home pay for thousands of industry workers.Appointed member of the Opposition PNP, Royal Robinson has issued statement calling on the Premier to step up to the plate and to deliver on her impassioned position.  Robinson cited comments made by the Hon Sharlene Robinson when she was Leader of the Opposition in parliament and summoned action in the House of Assembly to see what was a resolution and a private members motion be reinstated as TCI law.Hon Royal Robinson also corrected that it is not gratuity which needs to be fixed, but the service charge which guests pay.   “I am therefore calling on the Premier to move a motion in the House of Assembly to have this amendment Bill be taken through its three readings at this sitting and that she ensures its passage in the House by impressing upon her colleagues to support this bill as they did the Resolution that she had previously made.”A change in the law would give hotel workers 100% of the service charge collected, and not just the 40% they are reportedly now receiving.   Ironically, the Progressive National Party as government did not support the resolution on gratuity or the private members motion on service charge when they were brought to the House.According to Clarence Selver, then a PDM appointed member, who tried to get the service charge motion passed just before the General Elections, the Rufus Ewing administration was actually trying to block his presentation on the matter.  Member Royal Robinson now reminds that all eight PDMs voted for the gratuity resolution in April 2016 and that because the Governing PNP sustained it, it was carried.Magnetic Media reached out to Clarence Selver who explained that the motion by Sharlene Robinson last year did not address the correct ordinance and so was ineffective; Selver explained that the bill which he tabled in October 2016 did address the 10 year old problem more accurately but he said, “it did not garner the support of either side when I made the motion to have the majority of the House stand with me…”   On the day the motion was to get a second reading, the House was prorogued as General Elections were called.Today, the House of Assembly reconvenes for business.#MagneticMediaNews#PNPsupportsservicecharge#ClarenceSelver#RoyalRobinson#100%servicechargetohotelworkers Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img A father speaks in TCI Parliament Related Items:#100%servicechargetohotelworkers, #ClarenceSelver, #magneticmedianews, #PNPsupportsservicecharge, #RoyalRobinsonlast_img read more

With Leonardo and Paolo Maldini as directors, at least they are starting to recreate some of that identity, but they need a few more years to get back to the golden era.”Both Milanese giants rely heavily on an Argentina international centre-forward.“I think Higuain is ideal for Gennaro Gattuso’s tactics. The same goes for Icardi at Inter, as Luciano Spalletti’s wingers are perfect for setting up a deadly finisher like him,” continued Crespo.“I was a mix between the two. I would move like Icardi in front of goal, but participate more in the build-up play like Higuain.”last_img read more

This November, may be the best chance for success.Special interests have derailed previous attempts, but they have come together and formed a coalition called, Yes For A Better San Diego. As KUSI’s Steve Bosh explains, it’s not unusual for government officials to come together to back an initiative that benefit’s both sides.This expansion is going the citizen’s initiative route which only requires a majority vote, greatly increasing the chance of passage.Richard Rider, Chairman of the San Diego Tax Fighters, believes its certainly a good idea to get conventions coming to San Diego, even large ones, but is raising taxes the way to go even if paid by visitors? He told Steve Bosh “there’s a number of ways we can solve this problem without putting taxpayers on the hook. One solution I’d like to see it they should privatize the operation.”Rider also told KUSI’s Steve Bosh, that if there is a shortage of revenue from the increase in taxes, San Diego taxpayers will have to cover the remaining funds.
