22 days agoSpurs hero Berbatov: Would Kane turn down Real Madrid?

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Spurs hero Berbatov: Would Kane turn down Real Madrid?by Paul Vegas22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane could walk into any team into the world, according to Dimitar Berbatov.The England captain scored and played well despite Spurs losing to Bayern Munich 7-2 on Tuesday night.”I was watching Harry Kane against Bayern Munich and even though it was a bad result, throughout the game his movement, control of the ball, passing, play with his teammates and finishing was excellent,” Berbatov wrote in his column for Betfair. “For me he is the complete striker, I know that he can walk into any team and play. He is big enough and knows what he needs to do to win trophies in his career and he’s probably asking questions himself, it’s up to him.”I would love to see him win something with Spurs because he is Spurs. In the case of Kane and every other Spurs player, I think that every fan wants to see them win something in the end because they have good players and the manager is so good, but if that isn’t happening you start asking questions and you will probably disappoint many people if you decide to leave but you have to follow your own path because time flies.”There will always be lots of rumours about him because he is a top player and I would like to see Kane continue here in England, the same goes for [Mauricio] Pochettino but I know when Real Madrid come calling, you are going to ask yourself a million questions.” last_img read more

Bellino plan would modernize boater safety certification system

first_img Categories: Bellino News 27Apr Bellino plan would modernize boater safety certification system Legislation creates new designation for driver’s license, state ID cardsState Rep. Joe Bellino today announced a plan that would allow boaters and jet-skiers to do away with the paper boating safety certification cards they are currently required to carry while on the water.The proposal establishes a designation that could be placed on the driver’s licenses and state identification cards of residents who hold a boating safety certification.“A paper license that disintegrates when it gets wet is clearly not the best option for boaters,” said Bellino, of Monroe. “It would be much more practical and convenient for boaters to indicate their eligibility with the ID card they carry around each and every day.”Bellino recently introduced the legislation alongside Reps. Steve Marino of Harrison Township and Beau LaFave of Iron Mountain. The plan laid out in House Bills 5836, 5879 and 5880 would also allow boaters to present electronic proof of their boater safety certificates when stopped by law enforcement.Under the proposal, officers would be able to take the boater’s electronic device to their vehicle or request the documentation be forwarded by email or text. Bellino said search and seizure protections are included to prevent officers from looking through phones if they are handed over for e-proof verification.The procedures are similar to those laid out in laws enacted in 2016 and 2017 allowing drivers to present electronic proofs of their vehicle insurance and registration.“We live in a society where most people are never more than an arm’s length away from their smart phone. If someone can show a digital copy of their boater education card it should serve the same purpose as a paper copy,” Bellino said. “An update is long overdue.”The legislation was referred to the House Natural Resources Committee for consideration.###last_img read more
