Man United in crisis and LVG has TWO games to save job, says former star

first_imgManchester United are in crisis and the next two games will decide Louis van Gaal’s future, according to Mark Bosnich.The Premier League giants have failed to win any of their last six games and Van Gaal’s position is the subject of intense speculation.United visit Stoke on Boxing Day and host Chelsea 48 hours later, and Bosnich believes the Dutchman will be out of a job if they endure a miserable Christmas period.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former goalkeeper said: “Like with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, there is only so long in modern football that you can stand by somebody.“Three losses on the trot at a major club is a crisis.“If they lose against Stoke and lose against Chelsea, the United board will have no other choice [but to sack Van Gaal].”last_img

TD SAYS DONEGAL BEDS FACE AXE AS 900 ON HIT LIST

first_imgCOMMUNITY nursing beds in Co Donegal will be among the 900 being axed this year, a local TD warned today.Fianna Fáil Frontbench Spokesperson Charlie McConalogue TD has described as “drastic and shocking” elements of the HSE service plan for 2012 signed off by the Minister for Health Dr James Reilly.In particular Deputy McConalogue has raised serious concerns about the loss of up to 900 beds in Community Nursing Units across the country and the increase in waiting time (up to 9 months) for elective procedures. While none of the units involved have been named, he says the county will lose beds – with fears over units throughout the county including in Lifford.Deputy McConalogue said: “There is no justification for the closure of these beds or the ‘small number of units’which will be considered for total closure this year as outlined in the Service Plan.“There is a lot of focus today on the prospect of a minimum of 555 beds closing but the Service Plan approved by Minister Reilly actually allows for a maximum of 898 beds to be closed across the country.“This will come as deeply disturbing news to many older people and their families.  It is an appalling way to treat the elderly, most of whom regard these community facilities as their home.  It is also hard to see how there will be any significant benefit to the HSE as staff will have to be redeployed under the Croke Park Agreement to other facilities.” The local TD fumed: “Minister Reilly has again rowed back on a commitment given last November not to close community units. This is what he said ‘I want to put on the record that I’m a believer in the public nursing home provision and I want to keep that and retain that but I want to see our costs addressed.’ – Minister Reilly, RTÉ’s This Week, Nov 21st 2011′.”Deputy McConalogue continued: “We are particularly concerned about how the health service will manage the further reduction in staff with over 3,000 due to leave in the coming weeks and months. This Reilly Plan spells out very clearly today that ‘the bulk of the reductions that the HSE is required to deliver in 2012 will impact increasingly directly on frontline services’.“The public and the health service itself are not prepared for cuts on this scale and today’s Plan actually includes a dozen risk factors that could see further cuts being imposed through the year.“The Service Place also points out that ‘decreased hospital activity will impact particularly on elective procedures’ in hospital.  The Minister for Health has actually approved a plan that increases waiting times for procedures.  In conjunction with the Special Delivery Unit, the HSE will ensure no one will wait longer thannine months whereas before Minister Reilly decided to cut the National Treatment Purchase Fund, the average waiting time for procedures was just three months.“There are also very serious issues around the Fair Deal scheme and the Minister must be open and upfront about how the scheme will be managed and funded through 2012.  If the Fair Deal scheme is allowed to collapse while home help hours are cut and public nursing home beds are closed the elderly will rightly wonder what they have done to deserve the treatment they are suffering at the hands of Minister James Reilly.” LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comTD SAYS DONEGAL BEDS FACE AXE AS 900 ON HIT LIST was last modified: January 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:charlie mcconalogeNURSING UNITS AXETDlast_img read more

R1bn metal coating plant opens in SA

first_img6 March 2012 Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies stressed the importance of the steel industry to South Africa’s economic development as he officially opened Mauritius-based Safal Steel’s new R1-billion metal coating facility in Cato Ridge, KwaZulu-Natal on Monday. “This investment, supported by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and in which the Industrial Development Corporation also participated, clearly demonstrates Safal Group’s confidence in South Africa as an investment destination and the maturity of our steel industry.” The facility has a capacity of 150 000 tons a year of both un-painted and painted coated coil, which is sold on to the roofing and general engineering sectors. There are plans to double the volumes to 300 000 tons in the near future.One of SA’s largest manufacturing sectors Speaking at the opening of the facility, Davies said the steel industry was one of largest manufacturing sectors in South Africa’s economy and critical from an economic development point of view. “The facility is manufacturing and supplying coated steel roofing to both the local and global markets, with 60 percent of the product targeted for the local market and the balance for exports,” Davies noted. “The facility has already created 370 jobs, mainly employing people from local community, Durban and Pietermaritzburg.” Davies emphasised the linkages between infrastructure development and manufacturing, and said that investment projects that enhanced productive capacity should be supported.Business, government partnership The minister said the plant bore testimony to the important partnership that had been built between business and the government, and the role that business was playing in the country’s economic and industrial development. Through the DTI’s Enterprise Investment Programme, R30-million was approved for the investment, of which R22.5-million had been paid, and R9-million in support was granted under the DTI’s Critical Infrastructure Programme. The Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) also provided significant funding facilities for the project. Davies said his department understood the significance of the project and would assist in dealing with challenges that might hinder its long-term viability. Safal Group currently operates in 16 African countries. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Money Monday

first_imgBy Debra PankowWhat should Personal Financial Management Program employees tell service members about how a person’s FICO score is calculated?Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE symbol: FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision-management technology, officially adopted the brand FICO™ as its corporate identity. Credit scores are often called FICO scores because most credit bureau scores used in the U.S. are produced from software developed by Fair Isaac and Company.A person’s FICO score is comprised of the following factors:Payment history: 35%.Are bills late and how often?Amounts owed: 30%.Are you maxed out? How many accounts have balances?Length of credit history: 15%.How long have credit accounts been opened?New credit: 10%.Are you opening accounts frequently? How many new accounts do you have?Credit types: 10%.Is there a good mix of credit (credit cards, mortgages, or personal loans)?FICO scores are provided to lenders by the major credit reporting agencies (i.e., Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). They may differ at each of the three agencies because each agency may have different pieces of a consumer’s credit history on which a credit score is based. FICO scores are not static; they change over time according to a person’s use of credit.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on September 30, 2013last_img read more
