first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Arsenal players becoming frustrated with stale training sessions under Emeryby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSome Arsenal players are growing increasingly frustrated with Unai Emery’s training methods. The Gunners criminally blew a two-goal lead to draw with Watford last Sunday, with lacklustre defending at fault for both goals.Emery was criticised for his tactics and decision making during the match, which saw Watford accumulate 31 shots.It isn’t only the problem Emery is facing as his players have become increasingly frustrated with his refusal to practice pressing in his training sessions.The Athletic says Emery does not view pressing as an essential tactic to work on in training.This has annoyed some of his players who want to see Emery change up his training methods.The Spaniard is still liked by his playing group, but that could change if the situation continues this season. last_img read more

Gov’t Committed to Making Environment More Business Friendly – PM

first_imgThe Government is committed to reversing negative perceptions of Jamaica as a business-friendly destination, by making a real and lasting impact on the national business environment.Prime Minister, the Most. Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, made this declaration while addressing the official opening of the ATL Automotive Volkswagen Modular Showroom and Audi Terminal, on Oxford Road, St. Andrew on Friday, April 19.She disclosed that work to achieve the improvements is being done through the National Competitiveness Council, chaired by Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, with active participation from the Private Sector.“Minister Hylton and his team are charged with plotting an upward path to advance Jamaica’s position in the rankings, by taking the required actions, in partnership with the wider public and the private sectors, to address the complex issues affecting national productivity and global competitiveness,” Mrs. Simpson Miller said.She also called for a new culture of customer service at all levels in the public and private sector, premised on quality, speedy response and innovative practices, which empowers workers to exercise greater discretion and appropriate attitudes in delivering excellence every time.She noted that Government has tried many initiatives in the past to encourage greater levels of customer service and so it is time to consider a classic Public Private Partnership (PPP).The Prime Minister congratulated the ATL team, inclusive of Chairman, Hon. Gordon Butch Stewart, and son and Chief Executive Officer, ATL Automotive, Adam Stewart, for their level of service in delivering high customer satisfaction over the years. “I regard the ATL brand as a high quality Jamaican brand and an important local benchmark against which we can define and implement a new service culture in Jamaica. This is an urgent need when we consider that in excess of 70 per cent of the Jamaican economy comprises service industries like the dynamic automotive sector,”Mrs. Simpson Miller said.She challenged the ATL team, to consider how it could partner with Government “to find solutions to this thorny problem (of poor customer service), which if you think about it, is at the heart of our less than desirable position in the Global Competitiveness Rankings.”For his part, Adam Stewart, noted that the company, began 45 years old ago with a vision to give customers more than they expect.“We would never stand here and say that we get it right every time, but we certainly stand here and say that every time there is an issue, we take that phone call and make it right,” he said, in explaining the company’s philosophy of good customer service.He disclosed that the new-car sector is important to Jamaica, noting that in addition to the import duties that are being paid, the sector also employs and trains many Jamaicans in a specialised field.The new facility, which employs 120 persons on site, was constructed at a cost of US$13.5 million, representing the largest investment by any automotive company in Jamaica’s history.By Andrea Braham, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

Tarique docs disappeared from Shahriar Facebook page

first_imgShahriar Alam and Tarique RahmanState minister for foreign affairs M Shahriar Alam claimed on Tuesday that his Facebook page was hacked.And, he added, the post he gave on Monday showing copies of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman’s passport and application to the UK home office was no longer there.Shahriar’s Facebook post on Tuesday reads, “My Facebook (page) has gone through huge torture overnight. Hacking! The posts have disappeared.”Asked about the matter, Shahriar Alam on Tuesday morning told Prothom Alo that some of his Facebook posts had been vanished as, he insisted, his page was hacked.Addressing a reception in London a few days ago, the state minister told newsmen that Tarique Rahman, who has been living in London since 2008, gave up his nationality by handing over his Bangladesh passport to the UK home office almost four years ago.Following the state minister’s remarks, the BNP challenged and the BNP’s law affairs secretary Kaiser Kamal, on behalf of Tarique Rahman, served a legal notice upon Shahriar.According to the legal notice, Shahriar was asked to say sorry either to the nation or Tarique Rahman. Otherwise, it added, legal action will be taken.Addressing a press conference at his Gulshan house following the legal notice, Shahriar on Monday reiterated his position and said Tarique, his wife and daughters handed over their passports to the UK home office nearly in June 2014.He also said the UK home office then sent their passports to the Bangladesh high commission in London. The passports are now kept at the Bangladesh high commission office.After the press conference, Shahriar Alam posted copies of Tarique’s passport and the application to the UK government.last_img read more

New 311mph maglev train in Japan passes initial tests

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org) —Engineers with Central Japan Railway Co. have put their newest maglev L0 train through initial testing and report the new high-speed train is on course for commercial deployment by 2027. The train will eventually carry up to 1000 passengers at a time in 16 carriages (traveling at speeds up to 311mph / 500kmph) between Tokyo and Nagoya, cutting current travel time from 90 to 40 minutes. Explore further The initial test of the train was a simple trial to ensure soundness—the lead car and four other carriages were pulled along a track using a maintenance vehicle. An official test of the train is expected to be carried out in September. The maglev train, like others of its kind, is held in the air by magnets as it’s traveling cutting down on friction between wheels and rails.Japan was the first country to introduce maglev trains. They built and used one to transport spectators at speeds up to 130mph to and from venues at the 1964 Olympics held in that country. Since that time, virtually all other technically advanced countries have built so-called bullet trains and have put them into service. The title of worlds fastest is currently held by China’s Shanghai maglev train—it’s capable of running at speeds of up to 268mph, though it generally operates at closer to 150mph due to track length restrictions. A train running at 311mph would set a new bar, likely prompting others to see if that speed can be topped.Japan has set itself apart in high speed rail—its current network of trains run at speeds averaging a world-best 199mph over 1,400 miles of track. Nagoya, Japan’s third largest city is approximately 218 miles west of Tokyo—the the span between them is currently serviced by the Tokaido Shinkansen Line. Plans call for the rail line to be extended all the way to Osaka by 2045. Government officials have indicated that the overall plan is to add high-speed service between all of the major cities on Honshu, the country’s main island. Credit: TokioTimes When complete, each of the new trains will feature 16 carriages—plus the streamlined nose car positioned at the front. Each passenger car will be 24.3 meters in length, giving riders more room than conventional railcars, though there will be one extra seat per row. © 2013 Phys.org Japan’s newest floating train is one blistering maglev Citation: New 311mph maglev train in Japan passes initial tests (2013, June 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-06-311mph-maglev-japan.htmllast_img read more
