But I prefer the four attackers we have. I do not see today the possibility that we stay with five attackers because it is a particular position. “We have four good attackers. They do not find the way to the goal but we have to change that. If an attacker leaves us because all the parties agree, we will look for a solution in the transfer window. But we are not considering the possibility of having five attackers.” last_img read more

Liberal promise to set strict rules for unpaid interns pushed to 2019

first_imgOTTAWA – Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won’t make good on their vow to crack down on unpaid internships until next year — almost four years after the issue first landed on the federal government’s agenda.In the 2017 budget, the Liberals promised to eliminate unpaid internships in federally regulated workplaces — the only exception being student placements required as part of a school course. Interns would be treated like regular employees, with the same work hours and under the same safety regulations.Officials now say it will be fall of 2019 — right when the next federal election is expected — when they unveil the final set of regulations, at which time those groups pushing for an end to unpaid internships will find out when the rules come into force.Cabinet will have the final say on when the rules come into effect.“Once the legislation was amended, most people assumed you couldn’t do this anymore,” said Hassan Yussuff, president of the Canadian Labour Congress.“I don’t know why they haven’t put forth the regulations on this because they were very clear. Immediately after they got elected, they acted on it.”Since coming to office, the Liberals have touted spending aimed at creating more jobs for young people — notably doubling funding for the Canada Summer Jobs program, and putting money into creating internships and apprenticeships — hoping to meet campaign promises that won over many young voters.NDP jobs critic Niki Ashton accused the Liberals of being “all talk and no action” on an issue of vital importance to young Canadians.“There’s no excuse for not making a change sooner.”The previous Conservative government promised changes to labour laws to protect unpaid interns as part of their 2015 budget, but the rules were never implemented.The Liberals revived the proposal in December 2015, weeks after taking office, and faced opposition to its plan to allow unpaid work for up to four months full-time or up to a year part-time. The Canadian Intern Association dropped out of consultations, students mounted protests and labour groups demanded the whole process be restarted.When Patty Hajdu became labour minister in early 2017, her mandate letter called for updating labour standards “to address emerging issues such as unpaid internships.”The government’s second budget bill last year deleted part of the Canada Labour Code that provided an allowance for unpaid internships in certain cases, but left an existing exception for educational placements intact.In a statement, Hajdu said the government was committed to consulting Canadians on the changes before they are implemented.“Young Canadians need meaningful work experience to start strong in their careers, but unpaid internships can be unfair and exploitative,” she said.“We will eliminate unpaid internships in federally regulated sectors where they are not part of a formal educational program during this mandate.”A new round of consultations is set to launch next month and run into the fall to coincide with talks about new unpaid leaves for family reasons, traditional Indigenous practices, and victims of family violence.“While we’re encouraged that the federal government is finally moving forward on addressing unpaid internships within federally regulated employers, we’re also concerned that the timelines are excessive and push any concrete action into 2019 or 2020,” said Andrew Langille, counsel for the Canadian Intern Association.“The commitment to tackle unpaid internships was made during the 2015 election and one would think four years would be enough time to tackle a straightforward regulatory change.”Ashton said some schools are avoiding unpaid internships for students. Even so, she said, some young people believe unpaid work is the only way they can get job experience and a foothold in the labour market.Last week’s latest jobs figures from Statistics Canada showed an 11.7 per cent unemployment rate for workers age 15 to 24 — almost twice the national average of six per cent and up from May’s rate of 11.1 per cent.— Follow @jpress on Twitterlast_img read more

The Real MVP Steph Curry Announces Hell Financially Back

“I know Otis talked about wanting to start a golf club here and he was sending out flyers trying to have people come to a room on Howard’s campus and just get people interested in the game,” Curry said. “But he wanted to take it to another level. The idea around recreating Howard’s golf team, turning it into a Division I program for men and women was born on that specific night. Seven and a half, eight months later we are here announcing the first Division I golf program for Howard University all because of this guy here.” The historically Black university announced the development Monday in a news release. Fox 26 Charlotte reported Curry will contribute $1 million toward plans to introduce and grow access to golf at the HBCU, where scholarships will also be offered. To do so, the Howard press release states Curry will access major players in sports and the community, including sports apparel company Under Amour, sporting goods brand Calloway Golf Company and his own Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation to collect items including uniforms and equipment for the effort. GOD SHOWED OUT!!!🙏🏾 https://t.co/PgfONLiRbS— Otis Ferguson IV (@ferg_iv) August 20, 2019 “Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful,” Curry, who grew up playing the game with his dad, said in a statement. “It’s a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game, it’s tough. I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University, and look forward to building their first men’s and women’s golf teams with them.” Despite being an NBA MVP, Steph Curry’s has a love for golf, and he’s taking that passion to the bank by bankrolling Howard University’s new golf program through 2025. Ferguson has expressed his excitement on Twitter by retweeting a video of the announcement Tuesday and saying, “GOD SHOWED OUT!!!🙏🏾” Men’s and women’s golf teams will be introduced at Howard by 2020. It will be the first set of Division I teams in the sport at the school. Previously, Howard had a Division II golf team as well as different intramural teams and intercollegiate clubs for the elite golf. Speaking at a press conference at the Washington, D.C., university August 19, Curry said he was inspired to make this effort a reality after a conversation with Howard senior and golfer Otis Ferguson IV, whom the basketball star met during a visit to the school earlier this year. Curry had been on campus to promote his documentary “Emanuel” in January. University President Wayne A. I. Frederick said in a statement that the school is “honored to partner with NBA Champion Stephen Curry to launch what is sure to become one of the best golf programs in the country.” read more
