U.S. District Judge Restores Obama-Era Ban On Offshore Leasing

first_imgThe decision on Friday threw out Trump’s executive order that overturned the bans placed by Obama. Gleason: “Presidents have the power under a federal law to remove certain lands from development but cannot revoke those removals”. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A U.S. judge ruled on Friday that President Donald Trump ‘exceeded his authority’ when he reversed bans on offshore drilling in parts of the Arctic Ocean and dozens of canyons in the Atlantic Ocean. In 2015, Obama halted exploration in coastal areas of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas and the Hanna Shoal. In late 2016, he withdrew most other potential Arctic Ocean lease areas,  about 98 percent of the Arctic outer continental shelf. U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason announced the ruling that restored the Obama–era restrictions. Gleason: “The wording of President Obama’s 2015 and 2016 withdrawals indicates that he intended them to extend indefinitely, and therefore be revocable only by an act of Congress.”  Senator Murkowski: “I strongly disagree with this ruling, which asserts that past presidents can bind their successors and only Congress can overturn those decisions. That is not the correct interpretation of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act and could have catastrophic impacts for offshore development, which creates jobs, generates revenues, and strengthens our national security. I expect this decision to be appealed and ultimately overturned—if not by the Ninth Circuit, then by the Supreme Court.”last_img read more

first_imgSuper Eagles coach Salisu Yusuf has been caught on camera taking cash from men disguising as football agents.The 56-year-old reportedly received the sum of $1,000 to facilitate the selection of two players into the Super Eagles team B squad ahead of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in MoroccoThe two players had previously played for the national team and their potential selection is to aid big football contracts for them.Former Enyimba and Kano Pillars coach Salish Yusuf was also promised 15% of the proceeds from the players’ contracts.The two players were part of Nigeria’s team to the 2018 CHAN tournament in Morocco but Yusuf was adamant that the money he received was only a gift and it didn’t influence his squad selection.He led Nigeria to their best ever finish of second place at the tournament won by hosts Morocco.The footage was captured by controversial Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in September and released to BBC Africa Eye.Salisu Yusuf was part of the Super Eagles’ coaching crew to the just concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.He is an assistant coach in the Super Eagles coaching crew setup led by head coach Gernot Rohr.Yusuf is expected to lead Nigeria’s team to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.Video Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/tweet_20180724_105824.mp400:0000:0003:38Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.RelatedNFF Breaks Silence Over Bribery Allegation Against Salisu YusufJuly 28, 2018In “National Team”AUDIO: Form And Experience Will Be The Yardstick For Selection of CHAN Team – AmapakaboDecember 29, 2017In “Africa”Nigerian Coaches Association Secretary Ogbeide Defends Salisu Yusuf Over Bribery AllegationsJuly 27, 2018In “National Team”last_img read more

WEEKEND PREVIEW: The BIG 7

first_imgTottenham Need a Good Performance Against ChelseaAlthough Chelsea are still unbeaten, their season hasn’t been exactly perfect. Maurizio Sarri’s biggest concern remains getting his forwards to really deliver goals and the international break hasn’t always helped their case, breaking the rhythm just when they seem to have found it.Chelsea have become hugely reliant on Eden Hazard more than ever, one wonders what would have been had Real Madrid made a bid for the diminutive Belgian in the summer. With Hazard, there’s always optimism that something will happen and it is a good feeling, but for how long?The highlight of Tottenham’s season so far has been the 3-0 win over Manchester United, they haven’t come close to repeating that performance either in the Champions League or against other top six opponents in the Premier League either.Games between these two are usually difficult to call. Yes, Chelsea have a superior head-to-head in recent years, but it has rarely been a walk in the park.Chelsea are also not playing at the level of Manchester City, so Spurs will really need a good performance against this side that still flatter to deceive because a lot hinges on it.Fernando Alonso Brings Magnificent F1 Season to a CloseWith both the Drivers and the constructors’ championship decided (by Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes), what’s the fuss about this weekend’s race? Absolutely nothing!Since the 2019 Formula 1 season won’t return until the Australian Grand Prix in March, I’d rather enjoy this before I get starved of pure racing for the next four months.The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will also be Fernando Alonso’s 314th and final race weekend before he leaves to pursue opportunities in other series.It’s tough to imagine how Alonso has called time on his illustrious career without adding another championship win to his collection, the last one coming in 2006. Between that time and now, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have won nine championships and while Jenson Button and Nico Rosberg picked a championship each.Although McLaren was granted special dispensation from the FIA to change the car colours in honour of Alonso, an incredibly rare thing for F1 teams to deviate for a single race from their set livery at any point during a season, don’t be too emotional to think Alonso might end the year with a win at Abu Dhabi.The Spaniard might have won 32 races, but the last one was five years ago in Spain.GSW Want to Snap Losing Streak this WeekendIt’s been six games without Steph Curry and three without Draymond Green, and Golden State Warriors have found themselves in a very unusual position.For the first time in Steve Kerr’s era, and after playing 450 games, the Warriors have lost four games on the trot, three of those coming against Conference Rivals Spurs, Houston Rockets and now the Thunders; a new experience that they have to battle without two of the league’s best players to count on.More concerning is the lethargy in attack, the Warriors have averaged 95 points per game during the run, an unusual statistic for the usually free-scoring Warriors side.Up next is back-to-back home games against the Blazers and Sacramento Kings, if there ever is a time to bounce back, it is now.“They’re not just gonna happen. We gotta make ’em happen,” Durant said of the notion that better days were ahead. “I got confidence in everybody in the locker room that we’ll make those better days happen, but it’s not gonna just pop outta nowhere and get better for us.”Superclasico Takes a Ride to El MonumentalRiver Plate may have forced Boca Juniors to a 2-2 draw in the first leg, but they face an upheaval task of getting Ignacio Scocco ready for the big game on Saturday at El Monumental after failing to recover from a calf injury.The absence of the highly thought-of 33-year-old striker will deal a further blow to a River side that are already without striker Rafael Santos Borré and currently stretched thin in attack. The dilemma for the coach will be to alter the team shape to accommodate these absentees or to bring on his third choice forward for River’s biggest game of the season. Tricky.One thing is certain, this game will be intense from start to finish and no one will benefit from any undue home advantage.Atletico Madrid vs BarcaMuch ado about this fixture, different venue same results; Barca will always leave the Spanish capital with a win. It doesn’t mean I won’t watch this game, I’ll savour every moment of it.Diego Simeone will be particularly keen to end the sheer dominance of Luis Suarez and Leo Messi in this fixture.Since the Uruguayan signed in 2014/15, the teams have met on 14 occasions in the league, cup and Champions League. Barca have scored 22 goals and 15 of them have come from the boots of both Messi and Suarez alone. It’s the sort of madness Simeone will be keen to end.That aside, the level of competitiveness in La Liga this season is surreal, cynics will say it’s just the beginning of the season, but with just four points separating the top six teams, again, I’ll savour this moment.An Injury Ravaged AC Milan Travel to RomeFate has gifted Lazio an injury-hit AC Milan, how much of that advantage Simone Inzaghi’s side can manage is yet to be seen.Captain Alessio Romagnoli became the latest senior centre back to pick up an injury, he joins Mattia Caldara and Matteo Mussachio who are both ruled out until the new year having ruptured their Achilles and Cruciate ligament respectively.To add to AC Milan’s problems, top scorer Gonazlo Higuain will miss out through a suspension he picked up last time for lashing at the referee angrily against Juventus whilst midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu will also likely be sidelined through injury. Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura aren’t expected to return until March and April 2019.If you ever wonder why AC Milan have been struggling lately, there’s your answer. Gennaro Gattuso doesn’t have much of a choice either.France and Croatia Davis Cup FinalIronically, these two nations faced off in the FIFA World Cup final in July, and now they clash again.This year’s final is special, as it will mark the last time the Davis Cup final will use the home and away format. The 2019 competition is expected to do away with the home and away format after an opening qualification round and will culminate in an 18-nation finals week in Madrid in November.For this weekend, 10-time champions France will take on Croatia – who last won the Cup in 2005.The surprise, however, is the decision of the French captain to pick Jeremy Chardy ahead of Lucas Pouille, to play Marin Cilic. Although it is expected that Lucas will be recalled to play Cilic in the reverse fixture.Whatever joker Yannick Noah is pulling off his hat, it will make for an interesting finale.Relatedlast_img read more

President Trump’s Inauguration Speech Sounds Familiar to Batman Fans

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Those who didn’t vote for President Donald Trump may joke that he reminds them of a comic book villain — but he’s not helping matters by directly quoting one in his inauguration speech.Fans of the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises thought Trump’s speech sounded a bit familiar — well, at least the part where he said, “Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.”In The Dark Knight Rises, the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy, tells the residents of Gotham City, “We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people.”Of course, it didn’t take long for someone to make a mashup of Trump’s speech and the movie clip.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Racist chants half Ligue 1 relegation battle and Lyon crash again

first_imgThe match ended 0-0, but for a few minutes it seemed it might be abandoned.In the late game, Lyon dropped three star players, who had reportedly fought in training, and crashed to a third straight defeat, losing 2-1 away to another relegation-haunted team, Nantes In Dijon, the game was stopped in the 78th minute as players from both sides headed towards the touchline of the Stade Gaston-Gerard after Gouano said he heard insults from behind the goal his side was defending.“It’s over,” Gouano, the team captain, said. “We’re not playing on. I’m taking off my team-mates. We’re going to the changing room.”Following discussions between players, coaches and officials Gouano approached the stand by pointing toward supporters in the crowd. Play then resumed.“We are in the 21st century, it’s unacceptable, I marked the incident by stopping play because these days we are all equal,” Gouano told French broadcaster BeIn Sport after the game.“Of course there are colours, but you have to rise above it. We are all human beings. The key word for me is love. You have to love the person next to you,” he added.Paris-born Gouano said in March he wished to represent the Ivory Coast.The incident comes after rising Italy star Moise Kean was targeted by racist abuse in Cagliari after he scored for Juventus in Serie A earlier in the month.“I didn’t hear the chants but if there were of course we totally support the cause, like with Blaise Matuidi at Juventus, when he wanted to stop the match,” Dijon forward Benjamin Jeannot told BeIn Sport.“I find it normal he wanted the game stopped, it’s not easy to control, I deeply support him,” he added.After the game the French league said it would investigate and also announced that Dijon had identified the culprit. The club said they intended to press charges. In Nantes, Lyon dropped Marcelo, Nabil Fekir and Memphis Depay, three stars who have played poorly in the club’s recent catastrophic run, as well a Ferland Mendy. French television reported before the game that the four men were involved in a pair of bust ups at training on Thursday. Depay’s exile only lasted until the 34th minute when he came on for the injured Lucas Tousart with Lyon already trailing to a goal by Kalifa Coulibaly. Martin Terrier levelled before half time but Anthony Limbombe scored the winner with seven minutes to play.Lyon stay adrift in third, six points behind Lille in second and five ahead of Saint-Etienne. Nantes moved nine points clear of Dijon who occupy the first potential relegation place.“At the end of the season, we’re going to have to ask some tough questions,” Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas told the waiting microphones after the game.last_img read more
