The former Bluebirds star was accused by parents of bullying their children, something Bellamy “categorically” denies. However, while he fights the accusations, Bellamy has stepped down from his coaching role.”I am aware of allegations that have been made against me via the media,” Bellamy said in a statement.”I understand the need for Cardiff City to undertake a full investigation in response to these allegations and – at my own suggestion – I have temporarily removed myself from my coaching position in order to cooperate fully with the club’s inquiry.”Obviously, I am saddened both by the allegations and the manner in which they were made and I categorically refute them.”I fully expect to return to my coaching role and have sought legal advice as to my position. I will be making no further comment until the full investigation by the club has concluded.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more


first_imgWolves boss Nuno left frustrated after Southampton drawby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves boss Nuno was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Southampton.The visitors went ahead in sloppy circumstances from a Wolves perspective, as Danny Ings capitalised to slot home. Wolves showed the spirit to come back and equalise through Raul Jimenez’s penalty, and Nuno wants his team to learn from their performance and build on an improved second-half.He said, “I’m disappointed because one of the things we are, and must be, is solid and today we were not. Sometimes you have to stay in the game, Southampton broke us when we should be more solid in defence.“We created but not in the right areas we should. We played long, Southampton did very well, they pressed us very well, they were organised and are a very good team, they did a good job to make our task very hard in terms of possession of the ball.”He continued, “Sometimes it’s not what you want to do, it’s what the other team lets you do, but we should find better solutions. In the second-half we played better, we were more stable.“The goal we suffered was a mistake, we had to react, and we reacted OK, and then we pushed until the end.“It was not an easy game, it was a very tough game. It was very disrupted, not both teams controlling the game, we had an injury and didn’t play the way we should and could.“The game was very hard, we made mistakes, a lot of things happened in the game, so we have to improve for the next one.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Who will take over the historic franchise if the job opens up as expected? According to Yahoo Sports’ NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg is the only coach on the Bulls’ list.“The job will be Fred Hoiberg’s if he wants it,” Wojnarowski said. “There’s not going to be any competition for him. Now, it’s conceivable that Fred Hoiberg decides to stay at Iowa State, but if they make a change and Tom Thibodeau is out, Fred Hoiberg is really the only candidate for this job from the Bulls perspective. But that doesn’t guarantee that he’s going to do it.

Ohio State answered one big question Wednesday among several uncertainties about the upcoming 2011 football season: Who will coach while Jim Tressel is suspended? Luke Fickell. OSU announced Wednesday that co-defensive coordinator and linebacker coach, Fickell, has been promoted to assistant head coach. Fickell will serve as interim head coach during Tressel’s five-game suspension to start the season. Fickell will retain his role as linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator, OSU athletic director Gene Smith said in a press release. “I am humbled and excited about the opportunity,” Fickell said. “I’m truly proud to be able to stand up here and accept this role.” Fickell spoke to reporters, but offered few details on how the coaching roles would change for next year. “We coach by committee. It never has been, never will be about one person in particular,” Fickell said. “This is still Coach Tressel’s team.” Fickell spoke about the struggles that will come along with Tressel’s five-game absence. “It will be difficult,” Fickell said. “We have to know whose team it is. It’s our team. It’s the seniors’ team.” Tressel acknowledged that it will be hard. He said OSU deserves his time 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “This year,” he said, “it may be 24/6.” Fickell is a Columbus native and a 1997 graduate of OSU. He played nose guard for the Buckeyes from 1992–96. He redshirted his first year and started the remaining four. Fickell said he was honored to have this kind of opportunity at his alma mater. This is Fickell’s 10th year on staff at OSU, with his responsibilities ranging from overseeing the punt team to being co-defensive coordinator. “A final version of Fickell’s updated contract has not been completed,” the university said in a press release. The university suspended Tressel for five games for not reporting known NCAA violations to superiors. Terrelle Pryor and four other players received improper benefits by selling memorabilia and receiving discounted tattoos in 2009. Athletic department spokeswoman Shelly Poe said OSU is awaiting the results of an ongoing NCAA investigation, and no questions regarding the investigation could be answered. Poe also acknowledged that the university has become aware of allegations from an HBO “Real Sports” report that former recruit Anthony McClover said he received sexual favors while on an official team visit in 2003. Poe would not say whether OSU would be investigating this and that said the university will not comment on the matter until more information is known. Tressel took the opportunity at the spring practice press conference to again publicly apologize. “The largest regrets I’ve had, have been when I’ve disappointed people, when I’ve let people down,” Tressel said. “The mistakes I’ve made are very disappointing. Certainly, I‘m sorry for that. Tressel said he has received encouragement from many people throughout the ordeal. “The strongest inspiration I’ve gotten has been from our tremendous administration, our staff and most especially, our team,” Tressel said. OSU will begin spring football practice today, and Tressel said he is looking forward to how the new team is going to look. “We’re excited that spring begins tomorrow. We begin that focus on these 2011 Buckeyes,” he said. “It’s going to be a little different team; there are a lot of new faces.” read more

first_imgLarge and fancy billboards have been hindering smooth take-offs in Mumbai airport, due to which Air India reportedly incurs an estimated loss of about ₹10 crore per month on its Mumbai-New York flight. Due to these bill boards, the carrier loads 51 passengers less than its capacity.”Obstacles like hoardings, poles etc in the take off path of the runway at Mumbai airport have created operational constraints, leading to the Air India flight on Mumbai-Newark sector being operated with 51 passengers less than the capacity,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation G M Siddeshwara said in Lok Sabha.Planes have to reduce mass before taking off due to shorter take off path and it also requires more momentum to clear the high billboards, reported PTI.Few billboards in Mumbai airport are as high as a seven-storey building, whereas on most airport highways, hoardings and billboards are fixed far away or between residential buildings.”Air India had taken up the matter with the Airports Authority of India “who have removed some of the obstacles and revised the elevation of a few obstacles. This has resulted in some benefit to Air India,” Siddeshwara added.Air India’s few aircrafts have been acquired under a short-term bridge financing facility by various multinational banks, while it has sold and leased its seven out of 16 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.The airline also signed a delay Compensation Agreement with Boeing in September 2012 for delayed delivery of aircrafts.Siddeshwara added that Air India had leased five planes A-320 from China Aircraft Company for 12 years. Two more tenders for lease were issued in April and the bids received would be finalised in the course of time.Air India’s estimated total debt is ₹49,000 crore and total losses incurred from 2007-08 to 2013-14 is ₹37, 996 crore. The expected losses in 2014-15 is ₹6, 000 crore and government’s estimated capital infusion into the airline is ₹30, 231 crore by 2021, reported Hindustan Times.last_img read more

Paul Griffiths, the CEO of Dubai Airports, said that the figure would show Dubai is “closing the gap on Atlanta and Beijing for the top spot in overall traffic.” Dubai International Airport overtook London’s Heathrow as the world’s busiest airport for international traffic in 2014. The addition of 11 new passenger destinations by local carriers, including Emirates and flydubai, lifted passenger traffic through Dubai airport, the operator said. On January 22, Dubai Airports said that passengers travelling through Dubai International Airport (DXB) will be treated to live performances from CATS the Musical as part of its ongoing initiative #musicDXB. Selected cast members from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s globally-renowned musical – running at Dubai Opera from January 16 until January 28 – will perform two shows for #musicDXB on January 24, at 1 pm (B-Gates) and 2.15 pm (A-Gates) at the airport. Performers in the shows will include Joanna Ampil, a popular musical theatre actress from the Philippines. According to the data released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, India’s civil aviation regulator, last week, Air India, IndiGo, SpiceJet, Jet Airways, Go Air, AirAsia India and Vistara flew about 95.2 lakh (about 9.5 million) passengers during December last year, an increase of 23.10 percent over the corresponding month in the previous calendar year. In full-year 2016, domestic carriers flew about 998.88 lakh passengers between the January to December period, while 810.91 lakh passengers flew in the same time period in the previous year (2015).last_img read more


first_imgA cut-out of Kim Jong-Un is burnt during a protest in South KoreaNorth Korea has up to 5,000 tonnes of chemical weapons, South Korean experts said Friday, including the toxin used to assassinate its leader’s half-brother.Traces of VX — a nerve agent listed as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations — were detected on swabs from the face and eyes of Kim Jong-Nam, who was poisoned at a Kuala Lumpur airport last week, Malaysian police said Friday.Malaysian detectives are holding three people — women from Indonesia and Vietnam, and a North Korean man — but want to speak to seven others, four of whom are believed to have fled to Pyongyang.South Korea’s defence ministry said in its 2014 Defence White Paper that the North began producing chemical weapons in the 1980s and estimated that it has about 2,500 to 5,000 tonnes in stock.North Korea has chemical weapons production facilities in eight locations including the northeastern port of Chongjin and the northwestern city of Sinuiju, it said in the 2012 edition of the document.”North Korea is believed to have a large stockpile of VX, which can easily be manufactured at low cost,” defence analyst Lee Il-Woo at the private Korea Defence Network told AFP.Developed some 100 years ago, VX can be produced at small laboratories or facilities producing pesticides, he said.”Chemical and biological weapons can be delivered through various means such as artillery, missiles and planes”, he added.If absorbed through the skin, eyes or nose, just a tiny drop of the colourless, odourless nerve agent is enough to fatally damage a victim’s central nervous system.Military science professor Kim Jong-Ha at Hannam University said the North has 16 kinds of nerve agents including VX and sarin, used by a Japanese doomsday cult, Aum Shinrikyo, in the 1995 attack at the Tokyo subway system that killed 12 people.It also possesses other lethal chemicals, including suffocating, blistering and blood agents, Kim said, as well as 13 types of biological weapons such as anthrax and bubonic plague.North Korea has not signed a global chemical weapons convention that prohibits the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons.More than 160 countries signed the treaty, that went into force in 1997.last_img read more
