By Dialogo January 20, 2011 The World Bank announced on 18 January a $15 million grant to Haiti to fight a persistent cholera epidemic, which has claimed the lives of more than 3,700 people since October. The funds, said the organization in statement, will go towards public campaigns to prevent infection and increase the capacity of Haiti’s health ministry to deal with the emergency. The World Bank approved an extra $5 million grant to go with $10 million first pledged in October to make a total donation of $15 million to combat the health crisis, the statement said. After the January 2010 earthquake, the World Bank Group committed 479 million dollars to the first 24 months of reconstruction, the body said, adding that a year later two thirds of the pledge has been delivered. Haiti’s cholera death toll has risen to 3,838, according to government figures, in what is a persistent but apparently declining daily death toll. The figure marks the total since the outbreak was first discovered in mid-October up to January 11. Total infections rose to 188,967 in Haiti, including 105,827 people who have been treated in hospital.

The conviction was upheld two weeks ago by the state Supreme Court Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department.Prosecutors have said that Flanagan helped quash the case against Zachary Parker, of Merrick, who stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics from his alma mater, John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, shortly before he graduated in 2009 while he interned with the Nassau police Ambulance Bureau. The burglar’s father, Gary, was volunteering for the nonprofit Nassau County Police Department Foundation when he asked Flanagan for help with the case.Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas had opposed the request to stay Flanagan’s sentence. The appellate division in Brooklyn first stayed the execution of his sentence pending the first round of appeals.Flangan’s attorney, Donna Aldea, head of the Appellate Practice Group for Garden City-based Barket Marion Epstein & Kearon, LLP, said that she is confident that the Court of Appeals will overturn the conviction. Her argument is that he didn’t receive a fair trial due to prosecutorial misconduct, prejudicial statements and insufficient evidence.Singas’ office stands by the conviction. A panel of four judges in the appellate division wrote in their decision upholding the conviction that any errors prosecutors made were mitigated by “overwhelming evidence of the defendant’s guilt.”Two other ex-police commanders—John Hunter, the retired Deputy Chief of Patrol, and Det. Sgt. Alan Sharpe—both pleaded guilty to misconduct and were sentenced to probation in connection with the case, which stemmed from a Press expose into police favoritism for the nonprofit’s donors. Zachary Parker pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to prison after violating his probation. He has since been released.
Mike Ashley is in talks to sell Newcastle to the Saudi Arabia sovereign-wealth fund, it has been claimed. The influential Wall Street Journal are reporting the Saudi’s are considering buying the Tyneside club for £340m. It is the latest stage of Saudi Arabia focusing on sports and entertainment as part of economic reforms to improve the countries standing. Amanda Staveley watches on from the stands The WSJ are reporting that the prospective buyer is the Public Investment Fund, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s key investment vehicle. Newcastle fans will be sceptical after several years of aborted or false claims being made from parties said to want to buy the club.There have been many businessmen trying to scrape together the cash to meet Ashley’s demands, but he has pledged only to sell if to someone with the clout to invest and revamp the club.The financier Amanda Staveley is mentioned by the WSJ as organising investors to join the buy-out. She has lurked for a couple of years, including claiming bids had been made, but never been able to strike a deal. A Saudi buy out would be controversial and reopen the debate about the nation’s “sportswashing” using events like golf and boxing to improve the country’s image.

Press Association The Republic of Ireland international will not be back in contention until the new year after sustaining a grade two tear. News on Robert Snodgrass’ knee problem is slightly better, with Hughton saying he will be out for a few weeks but not as long as Pilkington. Norwich manager Chris Hughton expects Anthony Pilkington’s hamstring injury to sideline the midfielder for up to six weeks. “Anthony has had a scan which shows a grade two strain which usually means five or six weeks out,” canaries.co.uk reported Hughton telling the club’s annual general meeting. “Robert came back from international duty with Scotland and felt his knee at the beginning of training on Friday. “He travelled with us to Newcastle as we hoped it would settle down, but unfortunately it didn’t, and he could be out for a few weeks but not as long as Anthony.” Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe) is expected to be fit for the home match against Swansea in mid-December but the comebacks of Mark Bunn (ankle), Alex Tettey (ankle) and Elliott Bennett (cruciate ligament) will all be longer. Injuries have not helped the Canaries’ run of form which has seen them win just once in their last six matches, dropping them to 16th in the Barclays Premier League. “You go through good periods where you’ve got no injuries, you keep doing things the same, and then you can pick up some,” added Hughton, in comments reported by the Norwich Evening News. “It’s just unfortunate we’re going through one of those periods at the moment, but we have to be able to cope with that, and it’ll give others an opportunity. “I’m not going to sit here and say I’m completely happy with our performances. “Are we where I’d hope we would be at the moment? No, we’re not. It’s my responsibility to make sure we do something about that, starting with Crystal Palace on Saturday.”

(BBC) – Racing Point have been docked 15 points and fined 400 000 euros (£361 000) for illegally copying parts of last year’s Mercedes car.The ruling came following a protest by Renault against the 2020 Racing Point, arguing that they had copied the brake ducts used by Mercedes in 2019.F1’s governing body FIA upheld the protest in part in handing down the fine and points deduction.Racing Point can appeal but have not indicated whether they will.The ruling hangs on the stipulation in the rules that teams must design specific parts of the cars themselves.Renault argued that the front and rear brake ducts of the Racing Point were too similar to those on the 2019 Mercedes to fit this description and that the information could not have been obtained other than by a transfer of intellectual property.Brake ducts are key parts in the aerodynamics of an F1 car, as they help control the airflow off the front wing, increasing downforce.Mercedes admitted they had supplied information about the front and rear brake ducts of their 2019 car, but this was allowed because these were not listed parts at the time.The FIA decided that the front brake ducts of the Racing Point were legal as, although they had been copied from Mercedes, they had been used on the 2019 car.But a rule change between 2019 and 2020 added brake ducts to the category of so-called “listed parts” that teams have to design themselves.Stewards found that Racing Point had used computer design data legally supplied by Mercedes to Racing Point in 2019 to design their rear brake ducts with “minimal changes” and fit them to their 2020 car.As the parts had not been used on the 2019 car, they were not permitted to be used in 2020, because they were a Mercedes design, not Racing Point’s, and had not been an integral part of last year’s car.The FIA said that had Racing Point asked whether they could use the 2019 Mercedes rear brake ducts on their car this year, they would have been told they could not. But they did not ask whether this was allowed.And the FIA found that “on a fair reading” of the rules, the rear brake ducts on the 2020 Racing Point “were designed in large part by Mercedes”.The FIA found that Racing Point “minimised the significance of the input it received from Mercedes and overstated the amount of work it actually did. Mercedes gave Racing Point a large proportion of their brake duct designs. Racing Point then made relatively minor changes to them.”The protest covered the first four grands prix of the season, and the FIA stewards said the points deduction was “intended to penalise the potential advantage Racing Point may have accrued in the design process”.Although the design process has been declared illegal, the stewards ruled that Racing Point are able to run the brake ducts for the rest of this season.The penalty “covers the entire process of (non)-designing of the brake ducts and making them available for use during the whole 2020 season”, even though their use “remains an infringement” of the regulations. The points deduction and fine are considered to be a sufficient punishment for the offence.FIA head of single-seaters Nikolas Tombazis said the governing body intended to introduce new rules to prevent teams following the route Racing Point have taken in designing effective copies of other cars in the future.Tombazis said the new rules would “prevent teams from using extensive parts of photos to copy whole portions of other cars in the way that Racing Point has done.“We will still accept individual components to be copied in local areas, but we don’t want the whole car to be fundamentally a copy of another car.”
