Show Racism the Red Card released a statement regarding Rhys Williams, following reports the defender was racially abused during Swansea’s draw against Luton on Saturday.

Show Racism the Red Card responded to the news with the following statement: ‘We fully support Rhys Williams and appreciate the swift action taken by Bedfordshire Police to investigate the incident and identify those involved.

“There is NO excuse for racism and we are sure the vast majority of football fans would agree that it is something that no player should experience.

“Show Racism the Red Card would offer support to anyone who may have been the victim of racist abuse. There is no place for this in society or football. All allegations of racism should be addressed. a thorough investigation by the competent authorities and, if proven, action should be taken.

“Any racism complaint lodged with Swansea City Football Club will be fully investigated.”

A Labor MP has called for a “cultural change” after her colleague Rosie Duffield was forced to withdraw from her party’s annual conference over threats.

Pat McFadden said he was “appalled” that Duffield missed the Labor Party conference which begins in Brighton on Saturday.

Duffield has been criticized for comments she made about transgender rights and claims she has been branded transphobic for “knowing that only women have a cervix.”

The Canterbury MP decided not to attend the conference after receiving advice that her safety could be at risk if she chooses to attend.

“Every MP should be safe at the Labor Party conference or at their own party conference,” McFadden told Sky’s Trevor Phillips on Sunday’s broadcast.

“We had this a few years ago, you may remember it with Luciana Berger, I was appalled then. I want Rosie to be able to go to a conference, but more broadly here I think there is an important cultural point about the way we discuss things.

“Difficult issues should be able to be discussed in a way that does not result in someone saying something that someone else does not agree with – they are completely irrelevant and subject to debate. terrible abuse or threats online. “

McFadden said we need to “find a way” to discuss the issues people disagree on, adding, “I think this also highlights the need for cultural change. We can’t have that kind of factionalism. We cannot have this kind of intolerance.

“I am convinced of the need for change within the Labor Party on many fronts. But the internal culture is certainly part of it.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also rowed behind Duffield, telling the BBC’s Andrew Marr show that she was welcome to the party conference.

He added: “It is unacceptable that anyone who feels in danger of going to a Labor Party conference, be it Rosie Duffield, be it journalists or anyone else.

“You have to be able to have this conversation in a civilized way.”

He said that one in four trans teenagers are trying to kill themselves and are among the ‘most vulnerable’ members of society, adding: ‘It is really important that we have this debate in a cool, calm way. and respectful. “

House of Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle also offered his support to Duffield, saying parliamentarians must be able to attend their own party’s conference without fear of prejudice. Other Labor MPs, including Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy, have also spoken out in favor of Duffield.

Duffield told the Sunday Times: “LGBT + Labor now seem to hate me and I was concerned they would attack me en masse at a conference.

LGBT + Labor condemned the attacks on the MP, adding, “We have made it clear our political disagreements with Rosie over the policy affecting trans people, but political disagreement should never lead to abuse or physical threats.

“LGBT + Labor has never behaved like this and would never encourage anyone else to do it. It is totally unacceptable.

“Women in politics are subject to appalling levels of abuse and we are clear that she has no place in our party or our society.”

This is not the first time that a Labor MP has faced security concerns at a party conference.

In 2018, Luciana Berger, then MP for Liverpool Wavertree, received police protection at a conference after months of anti-Semitic abuse.

And in 2017, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg had to be protected by security guards following abuse.

Cardinal Vincent celebrated mass at Our Lady of Lourdes and St Vincent de Paul Church, Harrow Road last Sunday. Mass was for the dedication of the altar and the blessing of the grotto of Lourdes. The Cardinal also blessed the newly commissioned altarpiece and mosaic of St Vincent de Paul outside with Fr Michae; the church. Guillem Ramos-Poqui, the iconic artist of the altarpiece and Sophie D’Souza, the artist of the mosaic of St Vincent de Paul, were both present at the celebration. The altarpiece was sculpted by Stephen Foster.

The parish recently completed the first phase of an ambitious four-phase improvement program for the church building and grounds. The first phase included rendering the exterior of the church and landscaping the church yard. New portals and railings have been installed, as well as planters, trees, a seating area and a cave with a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes.

The statue of Our Lady of Lourdes was donated by Herbert House in Liverpool, a community of retired missionaries from St Joseph’s Missionary Society. The statue previously stood in a cave that was built to mark the company’s centenary in 1966. When the decision was made to sell the land that included the cave, the statue needed a new home. The weather-worn statue was fully restored before taking its place in the courtyard garden of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Vincent de Paul, Harrow Road.

Father Michael Jarmulowicz, pastor of Harrow Road, said: “It is always a great pleasure and a great honor when the bishop visits one of his parishes. Therefore, we were delighted to welcome Cardinal Vincent to our parish to consecrate the altar. Initially this visit was scheduled for 2020, but Covid forced us to postpone.

“The following year, we were able to continue the redevelopment of the front yard with the construction of the cave, and the installation of the newly commissioned mosaic of St Vincent de Paul, which he also blessed. The parishioners were delighted to meet him afterwards. as we celebrated with a roast pork and a selection of national dishes brought by parishioners. “

Key words: Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, Fr. Michael Jarmulowicz, Guillem Ramos-Poqui, Sophie D’Souza, Stephen Foster, Church of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Vincent de Paul, Harrow Road

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that the country was preparing an official bid to host the Winter Olympics. Speaking on September 11 at a gala in Kiev to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Ukrainian National Olympic Committee, Zelenskyy told visiting President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, his “determination” to bring the Olympic Games to winter in Ukraine.

The reaction to this news among the Ukrainian national public has been mixed to say the least. Skeptics quickly observed that the previous Olympics had often served as vanity projects for authoritarian leaders such as Russian Vladimir Putin. Many also pointed out that the cash-strapped and war-torn Ukraine has many priorities far more urgent than building spectacular sports facilities and lavish Olympic accommodation.

These criticisms are perfectly reasonable, but they may fail to understand why an Olympic bid might in fact be a smart move on Zelenskyy’s part. Dictators certainly love hosting an Olympics, but that’s mainly because they offer the kind of unparalleled public relations opportunities that democratic Ukraine itself desperately needs. Indeed, if Zelenskyy’s ambitious plans come to fruition, the massive financial spending needed to prepare Ukraine for the Winter Games could potentially be seen as a wise investment if it helps transform negative international perceptions of the country.

UkraineAlert is a comprehensive online publication that regularly provides information and analysis on the development of politics, economy, civil society and culture in Ukraine.

From a practical point of view, there is little reason to doubt that Ukraine can host an impressive Winter Olympics. The country has hosted a number of major international events over the past two decades and has consistently received top marks for organization and hospitality. The Eurovision Song Contest 2005 and 2017 in Kyiv were well received, while the Ukrainian capital’s handling of the 2018 UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid was widely applauded by fans and officials alike. .

Ukraine’s most successful hosting experience to date has been the country’s role as co-host of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship with neighboring Poland. Kiev, Lviv, Kharkiv and Donetsk were the four host cities of Ukraine, with more than a million visitors from all over Europe and beyond in a memorable month-long football festival .

Ukraine underwent a major infrastructure upgrade before Euro 2012. In the years leading up to the tournament, the football stadiums in the host cities were completely renovated or, in the case of the Donbas Arena and the Lviv Arena, built from the ground up. A number of new hotels have appeared, including the five-star Kharkiv Palace. The gloomy and drab regional airports of the Soviet era have been transformed into modern air hubs, paving the way for a subsequent boom in the Ukrainian aviation industry that would continue to gain momentum until the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic from 2020.

Likewise, Herculean efforts would be needed to prepare the country for possible future Winter Olympics, but the experience of 2012 indicates that Ukraine would be up to the task. Ukrainians are often at their best when faced with specific deadlines related to major events such as public holidays or national celebrations. The prospect of hosting the country’s first Olympic Games would prove to be a powerful motivational tool to mobilize the public and private sectors.

Zelenskyy’s Olympic bid is expected to focus on Lviv as a potential host city, with alpine events taking place in the nearby Carpathian Mountains. This would result in a massive amount of new construction involving billions of dollars in investment. However, there is a good chance that improving infrastructure in and around ski resorts in western Ukraine will create a significant long-term legacy for the region’s tourism industry.

The Carpathian region in Ukraine is geographically well placed to become an attractive winter tourist destination for European customers. A small but growing number of modern winter resorts have already sprung up over the past decade, but there is still enormous untapped potential that could be unlocked by the revolutionary impact of the Winter Olympics. Hosting the Games would put the Ukrainian Carpathians on the radar of the international tourism industry, while the world-class facilities built for the Olympics would continue to draw visitors long after the closing ceremony, thus boosting the appeal of tourists. winter sports in the region.

The likelihood of a lasting positive economic impact on Lviv and the entire Carpathian region is in itself a strong argument for a Ukrainian Winter Olympics. However, the most compelling reason for an Olympic bid is the opportunity it would offer to reinvent Ukraine on the international stage.

Even Ukraine’s staunchest supporters would concede that the country suffers from serious image problems. Since regaining its independence in 1991, Ukraine has struggled to emerge from the Soviet shadow and rid itself of lingering associations with Russia. International awareness of Ukraine has remained minimal and has generally been limited to damaging stereotypes revolving around corruption, poverty, crime and war.

This particularly dark backdrop has been a hindrance to Ukraine’s progress over the past three decades, but it has the sole benefit of ensuring that first-time visitors to the country are almost always pleasantly surprised. Newcomers typically travel to Ukraine with extremely low expectations, only to be faced with a friendly, vibrant and unmistakably European environment that offers the right blend of familiar comfort and intoxicating exoticism.

Anyone who has ever hosted friends, family or colleagues in Ukraine will confirm the country’s ability to make a good impression. The main challenge has always been to get enough people to come and see for themselves. This makes the idea of ​​the Ukrainian Winter Olympics a particularly compelling proposition.

A Ukrainian Winter Olympics would attract thousands of athletes as well as small armies of colleagues and supporters. It would also attract media from around the world to the country for an extended period of time, exposing them to the tremendous natural charms and legendary hospitality of Ukraine. Many of these Olympic guests will become unofficial ambassadors of Ukraine, enthusiastically sharing their experience of this unexplored but endearing destination.

Meanwhile, the event would attract a cumulative global TV audience of billions, with the potential for even greater reach on social media. For more than two weeks, viewers around the world would be confronted daily with images of Ukraine that have little to do with the unflattering associations that currently undermine the country’s international image. If handled well, the hosting of the Winter Olympics could open a whole new chapter for Brand Ukraine.

There is no guarantee that Ukraine will actually get the right to host the Winter Olympics, of course. Zelenskyy will face stiff competition from Barcelona and Salt Lake City, with the earliest available date for a Ukrainian Games now probably being 2034. Nonetheless, a successful Olympic bid remains a tempting prospect. A future Winter Olympics in Lviv could be another important milestone in the Ukrainian nation-building process, while offering the promise of tangible long-term benefits for the country’s international reputation and tourism industry.

Council urges residents to be perfect parents to their feline friends https://liverpool-il.com/council-urges-residents-to-be-perfect-parents-to-their-feline-friends/ https://liverpool-il.com/council-urges-residents-to-be-perfect-parents-to-their-feline-friends/#respond Thu, 09 Sep 2021 00:51:05 +0000 https://liverpool-il.com/council-urges-residents-to-be-perfect-parents-to-their-feline-friends/ Liverpool City Council is calling on all cat owners to ensure they tick the boxes for responsible cat ownership, including microchipping, deexing and confining all four-legged animals on owner’s property.

Liverpool City Council is calling on all cat owners to ensure they tick the boxes for responsible cat ownership, including microchipping, deexing and confining all four-legged animals on owner’s property.

According to data from 2005-2021, 14,759 cats were microchipped in Liverpool. However, less than a third (4,868) of these pets are registered, indicating that only 32 percent of local government area (LGA) residents tick all of the boxes for responsible cat ownership.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said the council continued to provide information, access to free microchip and subsidized de-extinguishing programs to help residents give their cats the best possible chance at a safe life and happy.

“We understand how special it is to be a ‘purrent’ and know that our residents want their cats to enjoy a long and enriched life. The registration and the microchip are important because they allow the Council to identify lost cats and reunite them with their owners, ”said Mayor Waller.

Microchip your cat is a safe procedure where, by a licensed veterinary service, a small microchip – the size of a grain of rice – is inserted under the skin on the back of a cat’s neck. The unique microchip number is linked to the NSW Pet Registry with details about the animal and its owner. So when the chip is scanned, the owner can be identified.

“If you’ve moved, changed your phone number, or relocated a cat, don’t forget to update your pet’s contact details. You can access your pet’s microchip information and manage the details yourself directly online at www.petregistry.nsw.gov.au, ”Mayor Waller added.

Alarmingly, only 21% of LGA cats have been deexed, noting that kittens can reach puberty as young as four months old and have up to three litters per year. Deexting before puberty or at an early age (before 16 weeks) is recommended by the NSW RSPCA, the NSW Animal Welfare League and the NSW Cat Protection Society.

Deexting cats can help prevent unwanted litters, reduce the risk of breast cancer and uterine infections, aggressive behavior and most importantly the likelihood of a cat wandering, reducing the risk of getting lost or injured. .

“It is essential that all cat owners remember to keep their feline friends confined to their property. This will help prevent unwanted litters, reduce the risk of native wildlife hunting, cat fights, and the spread of disease. Essentially, it keeps them out of harm’s way and prevents other injuries like being hit by a car, ”said Mayor Waller.

“Being a responsible animal owner protects your animal, our local environment and the community,” concluded Mayor Waller.

A man jailed for stealing an emergency business grant of £ 10,000 has been released after spending just six weeks behind bars.

Izzldenein Yousif tricked Liverpool City Council into wrongly claiming he was entitled to support for his car wash business in Fairfield.

He did not mention that Izzy Bizzy Hand Car Wash on Prescot Road went out of business three years earlier and left the unit in 2019.

When the board called the 65-year-old to confront him about the fraud, Yousif lied saying he had already spent the money and hung up, before later using the money to buy a taxi. .

Judge Anil Murray said Yousif’s claims were “having an impact on society” and a “deterrent sentence must follow” when he jailed him for six months in July.

But the fraudster appealed the conviction and this week his lawyer Callum Ross convinced the top judges on the Court of Appeal to release him.

Liverpool Crown Court had previously heard how the government had given the Liverpool area just under £ 108million to provide grants to small businesses “to help them support them during the economic downturn”.

To be eligible for grants, businesses must have been in operation by March 11, 2020 and have received small business tariff relief.

Yousif emailed council on July 30, 2020 to let them know that he had not received a grant for his car wash and that he was entitled to one.

This was not true as he had left the premises at the end of 2018 and in February 2019 there was a new tenant.

Liverpool courts are among the busiest in the UK, with a wide variety of cases heard each week.

On August 6, a board member emailed Yousif to tell him that if he wanted a grant, he would have to apply formally.

Yousif submitted a signed form the next day and received £ 10,000, which was deposited into his account on August 12.

On August 25, the board’s fraud and compliance team received a report from a member of the public about Yousif’s fraud.

The owner of the now-at-unity business also said he received letters addressed to Yousif.

A council officer called Yousif in early October, when the fraudster said he had spent the money and abruptly ended the call.

Investigations led police to the abandoned Newsham Park hospital, where Yousif lived, on January 28 this year.

He tried to escape through a fence but was arrested at the scene.

When questioned, he told police he felt he was “entitled” to the subsidy because of the commercial tariffs he had paid in the past.

Yousif, from Orphan Drive, Newsham Park, who admitted to the fraud, has since refunded all the money.

He had previously been convicted of criminal prejudice and threatening behavior in February 2008.

Speaking at the hearing in July, Mr. Ross, defending, said his client no longer supported the comments made in a pre-sentence report, as he attempted to “exonerate himself and Your Honor might think that ‘ blame the council and the police. ”

Mr Ross urged the judge to spare Yousif prison, suggesting that there was a “realistic prospect of rehabilitation” and that Yousif was assessed as low risk of reoffending, had “luckily” returned the money and had ” remorse”.

He said Yousif was born in Sudan but “fled” the African country in 2000 as a “political refugee” and was now a British citizen.

The lawyer said Yousif had recently worked as a taxi driver but his taxi has since been seized by police.

Mr Ross said Yousif had siblings with children in Sudan, to whom he sends £ 300 a month, and that they were to some extent his “dependents”.

He said Yousif, who had started a new job as a warehouse worker for The Hut Group in Warrington, was “upset” that his family would be financially affected if he was jailed.

Judge Murray told Yousif: “You knew, like all of us, that businesses in this country needed help during the Covid crisis and that there was a huge demand for such money.”

The judge added: “You have prevented this money from being available for some other legitimate public need.”

Judge Murray did not accept that Yousif felt remorse over what he said in the PSR.

He said: “The fact that you took money intended to help businesses during the Covid 19 pandemic means that this is a case where the proper sanction can only be obtained through immediate detention. . ”

Yousif has appealed her conviction, which means she has been reviewed by Lord Justice Males, Ms Justice Cheema-Grubb and Mr Justice Murray in London.

Mr Ross argued that this was not a case where a deterrent sentence was needed and that his client’s strong mitigation meant his jail term should have been suspended.

He told the appeals court that Yousif had no relevant previous convictions, had been employed for most of his life, and noted that the pre-sentence report also spoke positively of how he was willing to work with him. the probation service.

The top three judges again rejected any claim that Yousif had remorse.

But they accepted Mr Ross’ arguments and said that given all the mitigation they heard, Yousif should not have been jailed.

They overturned the six-month prison term and sentenced Yousif to six months in prison, suspended for 12 months.
