Moyes confident he will make West Ham beg him to stay

first_imgMoyes was let go by co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan after the 2017-18 season despite leading the club to survival and a 13th-place finish.He was replaced by Manuel Pellegrini, whose tenure came to an end on Saturday following the 2-1 home defeat by high-flying Leicester City which left the Hammers fourth from bottom just a point above Aston Villa.Moyes, who established his reputation with Everton before the demoralising spell at United, said he was not bitter about being let go in 2018.“No, because things were done correctly — I wasn’t taken on and I was told that,” he said on Monday at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s home game with fellow strugglers Bournemouth.“I was disappointed, I’ve said that, but I’ve got another chance to go again.“I think it says a lot about the owners, they thought the job I did was good enough to give me another opportunity.“This time I’m going to make it so there’s no choice but to renew.“There’s a clause in there and I’m going to make it impossible to ignore that, that’s my plan.”– No hesitation –David Moyes (C) said he ‘can’t wait’ to return to West Ham who he led to 13th place in the 2017-18 season © AFP / Ian KINGTONMoyes, who also had unsuccessful spells at Spanish side Real Sociedad and Sunderland, said he had not hesitated when he received a phone call from the owners.“It was very simple when they called me,” he said.“They asked me do I want to come back and I said ‘I can’t wait’.“We didn’t talk about the past, we were just talking about the team now, what we have to do and the position we’re in.”Moyes return has not been universally welcomed by West Ham fans but he said he was the right fit for the job.“What anybody’s getting is a very experienced Premier League manager, I think there’s arguably only two or three more experienced around, and I win,” he said.“There’s a lot of new modern things in football but recently I think you’ve seen signs of things going back a bit.“We do want to keep possession but perhaps possession is not now seen, even maybe by yourselves (in the media), as the key to winning games.“The fans want to see more attacking football, action and excitement.“The biggest thing I want to see from my team is for the supporters to be excited — I would love that to be the case.”0Shares0000(Visited 17 times, 2 visits today) 0Shares0000David Moyes believes he will do so well in the 18 months he is contracted to West Ham that they will have no option but to renew his contract © AFP / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 30 – David Moyes said he would perform so well in his second spell as West Ham manager that the owners would have no option but to renew his contract when it comes to an end.The 56-year-old Scotsman, whose reputation took a battering during a deeply unsuccessful spell as Manchester United boss in 2013-14, signed an 18 month contract with the Premier League strugglers on Sunday.last_img read more

All Primary Students Must Matriculate to Secondary School – Minister

first_img Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says he is determined to have 100 per cent of primary-level students matriculating into secondary schools for a full five-year course of study.Speaking to students from Wolmer’s Boys’ and Girls’ schools in Kingston during their devotion on September 25, the Minister said Jamaica is only one per cent away from achieving this target.“For many years, over 70 per cent of students in Jamaica did not have access to education beyond grade nine. This year marks the first time in our history that we were able to place 99 per cent of our cohort into a full five-year high-school programme. Next year, hopefully, we’ll be able to place the full 100,” Senator Reid said.“The message I share is about opportunity for all. There was a view that education was elitist. Today, the society is not going to be productive if only some have and the majority don’t have. We want a society where everyone gets equal opportunity for self-development and self-determination, aspiration for goodness and their own sense of self-worth and achievement,” the Minister added.Senator Reid said he believes achieving the goal of getting 100 per cent of students enrolled at the secondary level up to fifth form and placed in a full five-year course of study will benefit the society in a major way in the long run.“Currently, when you look on our workforce of 1.3 million persons, 15 per cent have tertiary education and training, 18 per cent have what we call technical certification from HEART Trust/National Training Agency (HEART/NTA) and City and Guilds, and then 67 per cent did not complete secondary education or any training – almost 800,000 Jamaicans,” he said.The Minister said that through programmes being offered by the Government, such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), along with programmes from other organisations, the one per cent of students who were not placed in a full five-year course of study at the secondary level, can be reached.“We have been pushing science, technology, engineering [and] mathematics largely because the world economy has changed rapidly. We’re now in the fourth industrial revolution where technology is taking over, and a lot of what we will do, how we’ll conduct business, produce goods and services, will be heavily impacted by technology,” he argued.“When we talk about STEM, it is because this is the new economy, and so your education, your training have to be aligned to what is happening in the new economy and for the future. We can’t turn it back. We have to embrace it, prepare for it [and] equip ourselves,” the Minister emphasised. Senator Reid said he believes achieving the goal of getting 100 per cent of students enrolled at the secondary level up to fifth form and placed in a full five-year course of study will benefit the society in a major way in the long run.

Remains of ace mountaineer Dipankar Ghosh located

first_imgKolkata/Kathmandu: The rescue team has been able to locate the body of ace mountaineer Dipankar Ghosh, who had gone missing on May 12 while coming down after successfully scaling the challenging Mount Makalu in Nepal. The team is now trying to bring down the body to Camp 2, from where the body can be airlifted to Kathmandu.”The inclement weather had acted as a barrier in the rescue process and there was postponement for eight days. The six member Sherpa team has located the body at Camp 4. It is being brought down to Camp 2, from where the body can be airlifted to the base camp. If the weather does not turn hostile then the process will take another two to three days,” said Ujjal Ray, a member of the advisory committee of the state Youth Affairs department.

Two more Indian climbers have died on Mount Everest due to an hours-long ‘traffic jam’, taking the toll to 8 of the Indian mountaineers who perished in their expedition to the world’s highest peak during this season. Nihal Bagwan, 27, and Kalpana Das, 49, died along with two other climbers above the 8,848-metre Mt Everest while descending the summit, the expedition organisers said.

Known as one of the most outstanding mountaineers, Dipankar Ghosh had undertaken 47 mountaineering expeditions, including Mount Everest, Mt Lhotse, Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Annapurna-I, Mt Manaslu, Mt Dhaulagiri, and Mt Cho Oyu. A resident of Bally in Howrah, Dipankar had left his residence on May 8 for the expedition of Mt Makalu, which is considered among the most dangerous and challenging peaks to summit. The bodies of the other two Bengal mountaineers Kuntal Karar and Biplab Baidya, who died during a Kanchenjunga expedition, were brought down by the rescue team a few days ago. The autopsy of both the bodies has already been conducted and their mortal remains will be taken back to Kolkata by flight services from Kathmandu on Saturday afternoon. Another mountaineer from the state Piyali Basak, who had gone to scale Mt Everest, is also expected to reach the city by Saturday. Basak suffered from lack of oxygen and funds on the last lap of her expedition and was compelled to call off her expedition and return to the base camp. Basak, a resident of Chandannagore in Hooghly, was the only mountaineer from the state who had gone on Everest expedition. Meanwhile Nima Tshering Sherpa, one of the 14-member Sherpa team involved in the rescue work, was also reportedly killed on Friday. The exact reason for the accident which led to the sudden demise of Nima is yet to be clear.last_img read more
