German ports see potential in Russia

first_img“The prospects are especially good for those groups of cargo that are relevant for the ports of Bremen,” commentedMichael Skiba, marketing manager at Bremenports. This applies in particular to the ro-ro and automotive sectors and to project cargo, raw materials and fuels.”In view of the anticipated continuing economic growth and the consequent increase in demand for industrial and consumer goods in Russia and its neighbouring countries, it is extremely important for the ports of Bremen to present their port-related logistics services here,” added Skiba.The two port organisations recently attended to the TransRussia conference and exhibition in Moscow and a delighted Andreas Bullwinkel, director of the Seaports of Niedersachsen said: “We know of specific business transactions that have been made during the fair.”www.bremenports.dewww.seaports-offshore.delast_img read more

Real Madrid want to steal Yarmolenko away from Barcelona

first_img The Ukrainian is a player that Barcelona were tracking but have discarded for now, looking for a centre-forward. Los Blancos have got in touch with the player’s people to find out his availability. He has three important offers from the Premier League, but he’d like to move to Spain – and Barcelona are his priority. Upd. at 21:14 Real Madrid have started checking the transfer market in order to improve their squad. Florentino Perez knows the squad needs to be renovated, and there will be some big incomings and outgoings. One of those could be Andriy Yarmolenko.  The player has come on a lot in the last few months and, without doubt, is the finest Ukrainian footballer around. He has a great capacity to overload defences and unbalance them, as well as being an efficient goalscorer from the flank. Tomas Andreu CET He will cost around €25m, but Madrid are aiming to pay less. And Dinamo Kiev, his club, will not make it easy to sign him – especially given they have reached the latter stages of the Champions League.  Yarmolenko could take James Rodriguez’s place – a talented footballer, but the management and board are losing patience with his behaviour. They were unahppy he came back late ahead of the Clasico because of advertising commitments in South America. 22/12/2015last_img read more

Powered by Firework An annoyed Fred is holding Jose Mourinho responsible after a lack of game-time cost him his place in the Brazil squad.Advertisement The 25-year-old Brazil international has failed to make a mark at Old Trafford following a 52mil pounds move from Shakhtar Donetsk to the Premier League over the summer.Advertisement Due to his injury, he was left at the sidelines as a member of Brazil’s World Cup squad. Fred started three of his country’s first four matches after the tournament but was then left out by Tite for recent friendlies against Uruguay and Cameroon.I’ve played very little at United, so it’s normal for Professor Tite not to be able to evaluate me, even though I’ve worked hard with him before,” Fred told the Sunday Mirror.Advertisement “Of course, I was annoyed, but I have to know how to deal with the sadness to be able to help me take a step forward.“The coach (Mourinho) has chosen not to put me in the team. That’s his choice. I still do my job and I can’t let it affect my mindset, I cannot let that shake me. I have to be patient.”The starring performances of others in the United squad is also a reason as to why Fred has been kept out of the side. Advertisementlast_img read more

Houdini-like Leafs pull out another win to lead Kootenay Conference Final

first_img“We just found a way to kill of those penalties,” Karran explained, after Nelson was outshot 17-2 in the second.“That allowed us to battle back in the third and get those two goals.”Kimberley coach Derek Stuart didn’t think not scoring with the two-man advantage was a turning point in the game.“It would definitely have been nice to score on that 5-on-3,” Stuart said. “But we just have to tighten up our discipline and we’ll be all right.”Kimberley thought they took control of the game, scoring the go-ahead goal less than three minutes into the third following an end-to-end rush by defenceman Mason Palaga.Palaga raced over the Nelson blucline before taking a shot Williams mishandled leaving a juicy rebound for Kimberley forward Nicholas Ketola to drill into the net.However, the game turned back into Nelson’s favour when Matt Davies was whistled a tripping penalty in the neutral zone.Leafs tied the game on the power play — the third time in the game — when Ryan Cooper ripped a shot past Campbell.Then Nelson got the winner eight seconds later when Jaiden LaPorte somehow managed to get the puck past Campbell.Nelson then turned the game over to Williams, who was unbeatable in the final 17 minutes of the game secure the win.(Josh) has just been tremendous for us,” Karran said. “He made some amazing saves and his play really helped us tonight win this game.”As for Kimberley, which has held a shot advantage in all three games — including a 40-26 margin in Game three?“Just play hard again tomorrow, and minus the selfish penalties,” Stuart explained.“We shot ourselves in the foot with the penalties we took. We have to be more disciplined and that to me was the difference in the game.”GAME NOTES: Before the game, Leafs honoured its “Best Fan” during an on-ice ceremony. Neveah Mullin was presented with a Leaf jersey as well as a Team Photo by assistant captain Zach Morey. Mullin then dropped the puck in the ceremonial faceoff. . . .Fans in the north end of the ice tried unsuccessfully all night to start the Wave around the arena . . . Nelson was once again minus a core group of regulars as Jackson Zimmermann, Ethan Beattie and David Sanchez all did not play. The trio were joined by Leaf captain Sawyer Hunt, who was sitting out the first of a two-game suspension for match penalty during the first period of Saturday’s Game two in Kimberley. . . . Kimberley has outshot Nelson by a 113-75 during the first three games of the series. . . .Someone at the game went home a few dollars richer after claiming the 50-50 prize of $675. . . .The game attracted 843 fans. . . . In the Okanagan Shuswap Conference Final, Osoyoos and Revelstoke are tied 1-1 with Game three Tuesday in the South Okanagan. The Houdini-like Nelson Leafs pulled another rabbit out of their hat Monday night at the NDCC Arena to grab a 2-1 lead in the Kootenay Conference Final.Two goals in eight seconds, combined with stellar netminding from Game Star Josh Williams, sparked the Leafs to a thrilling 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Playoff victory over the Kimberley Dynamiters.Nelson now leads the best-of-seven series with Game four Tuesday back at the NDCC Arena.“We just wanted this game,” said Leaf forward Jack Karran from outside the boisterous home dressing room.Twice Nelson held one-goal leads to start the game.Logan Wullum tipped in a Dash Thompson shot with Nelson on the power play to open the scoring midway through the first period.Chase Gedney tied the game up for Kimberley, also on the power play. Gedney’s shot found the top corner with Williams scrambling to get into position after losing his goal stick behind the Nelson net.However, before the period ended, Justin Podgorenko’s shot went off the glove of Kimberley goalie Cody Campbell to regain the lead for Nelson in the final seconds of the period.In the second, Kimberley took the play to Nelson as the speed of the Nitros forced numerous turnovers by the Leafs to allow the visitors to tie the game.James Farmer evened the score at 2-2 when the Kimberley forward got past Leaf’s Thompson before picking the top corner behind Williams.Then came the penalty parade to the box for Nelson.Thompson started trip to the box, crosschecking Farmer after he scored the game-tying marker.Nelson managed to kill off that penalty, as well as a period of time playing two men short when Keenan Crossman and Podgorenko were penalized.last_img read more

Patel: Africa is vital to South Africa’s economy

first_img23 April 2015The continent is vital for the country’s economy, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel has told factory workers.“We sell R260-billion worth of goods to other African countries. That R260-billion creates more than 160 000 jobs in South Africa,” Patel said. These jobs were in clothing, car manufacturing and the selling of agricultural produce to other African countries.Speaking at a general meeting with factory workers in Pretoria on 22 April, he warned workers that if South Africa cut the rest of Africa out of its economy and the rest of Africa cut South Africa out of its economy, people in the country would lose their jobs.“We need to stop the attacks on fellow Africans. We need to deal with the frustrations and problems in a different way.”The top countries to which South Africa’s clothing industry sold were Mozambique, Zambia, the US and Zimbabwe. The top countries it sold to in the footwear and leather products sector were Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola. In the textiles sector, the top country to which South Africa sold was Zimbabwe.“The attacks on foreign nationals must stop. We cannot take the law into our own hands and kill fellow human beings,” Patel said. The government was addressing the problems of South Africa, including unemployment, lack of housing, the provision of water and electricity. This included managing migration properly.“We must make sure at our border posts, we have proper procedures. We must make sure that people have papers if they are here legally. We must make sure we manage the numbers of people who come into South Africa.”Patel called on companies to treat all workers equally, regardless of race or whether they were foreign nationals or not. “We must make it clear to companies – don’t exploit foreign workers. Don’t pay them less than South African workers. so much so that South African workers are put aside.“Let everybody be treated equally because the law applies to everyone equally,” he said.He would have a meeting with the Department of Labour to request inspections of companies to ensure they were complying with labour laws.“We are going to deal with the frustrations of our people,” Patel said. The country needed to address the people who were in the country illegally. “Foreign workers who are here legally belong in the union movement, in our churches, they belong in our communities.“We’ve got to organise them and make them feel welcome. They are part of us,” he said.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more
