Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says the situation surrounding David De Gea’s future is now out of his hands. The Spanish goalkeeper, who has yet to feature for United this season, looks set to join Real Madrid before the transfer window closes. United lost their first Premier League game of the season to Swansea City on Sunday and questions were raised about the performance of Sergio Romero. Van Gaal hinted an announcement about De Gea could be imminent and but was coy on whether United will buy a replacement goalkeeper or a striker before Tuesday’s deadline. “I don’t want to interfere as a manager,” said Van Gaal. “You have to wait and see until Manchester United make announcements or the club he is going to make announcements. Otherwise he stays. “We have divided our task and the task is for Ed Woodward, not for me. I have said nothing, the club shall announce it when it is finished. “You can never speak as a club like Manchester United that you are satisfied because it is a process and certainly we shall not buy at the end of the transfer window another player than we have scouted before. “We know already in advance what is happening and what is not happening. We have to keep on and in January the windows are open again. It’s a process and I cannot change that progress. “You are dependable not only from the player but also the club and what you want to spend. It’s a lot of things you cannot force.”

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “They’re out asking for tax increases at the same time they’re bumping up their salary. The apt description here is tone deaf,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “They could refuse this. They don’t have to take it.” And that’s exactly what Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said he would do. In a statement Wednesday, the mayor said he would not accept the raise – worth $8,283 – but instead wants it to go into the city’s general fund. “With the City of Los Angeles facing a tough budget year, I do not believe now is the time for me to accept an automatic and retroactive pay raise,” the mayor said. In the midst of a financial emergency, Los Angeles’ mayor, council, controller and city attorney are set to get annual raises worth $7,000 to $9,000 each. The 4.16 percent salary hike takes effect as Los Angeles faces a severe financial crunch, and city leaders are considering cutting services to balance the budget. The city also is asking voters in February to preserve the telephone users tax, worth $270 million a year. The new raise for city officers comes after an 8.5 percent salary increase in January and two increases worth a total of 6 percent in 2006. “Being mayor of Los Angeles is reward enough, and I’m committed to working 24/7 to protect essential services.” The mayor’s current salary is $223,142. The raise would boost his pay to $232,425. The mayor’s aides were quick to add that the mayor’s decision was a personal choice as “chief executive officer of the city” and not intended to goad fellow elected officials into rejecting the increase as well. But several officials said they, too, would forgo the wage hike. Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said she couldn’t “in good conscience” cut city services and then accept a raise. “It would be hypocritical to ask city departments to tighten their belts if I’m not willing to do the same,” Greuel said. “We are facing a difficult budget and this is one of the many tough choices that we will have to make, but it is simply the right thing to do.” Already the nation’s highest-paid city council, L.A. council member’s salaries will jump from $171,648 to $178,789. City Controller Laura Chick said she would be willing to forgo her salary increase – from $188,812 to $196,667 – if the mayor and council would agree to reform how city officials’ salaries are set. The new 4.16 percent wage increase (retroactive to July 1) was approved this month by the Judicial Council of California, which sets salaries for judges. L.A.’s elected leaders have their wages pegged to the judicial council structure, so when judges get a raise, so do the city’s 18 elected officials. “Let’s start now. Let’s not take the increase and change it going forward,” Chick said. “It’s about transparency and forthrightness. “It’s about logic and good government to base salary increases on public criteria and do it publicly.” email@example.com 213-978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“Yes, it’s condescending. Yes, it cheapens Christianity,” the magazine said, before concluding: “But the whole argument of the film is that our commodity culture has already cheapened Christianity.” Buy Nothing Day was conceived by artist Ted Dave of Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1992, and since then has been championed by Adbusters magazine, said Adbusters campaign manager Paul Cooper. “It started off as a bit of a joke,” said Adbusters editor-in-chief Kalle Lasn. “Environmentalists are really the core base of this movement. But after that there were religious people that came on board.” “There are a lot of people who don’t like this weird tradition of hectic shopping and frenzied and angry crowds the day after Thanksgiving,” Cooper said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Spurlock, known for placing himself in uncomfortable situations in 2004’s “Super Size Me” and his “30 Days” TV series, isn’t going with the immersion technique for this project. “I’ve unplugged, man,” Spurlock said this week. “I’ve started to walk away from this idea of getting credit card after credit card to get people more gifts.” Spurlock says the campaign and film should appeal to conservative Christians as well as to those on the political left. “People on both sides of the fence can agree on one thing, and that’s that the holiday’s gotten out of control,” he said. “We’ve been convinced that the way to show your love for someone is by what you buy them, by what the price tag is, by what is represented on the receipt. And that’s the wrong message to send out,” he added. A review of “What Would Jesus Buy?” in “Christianity Today” questioned whether Talen’s act, poking fun at both religion and consumerism, went too far. Buy Nothing Day is getting a Jesus jolt. Performance artist Bill Talen assumes the persona of Reverend Billy, often accompanied by a gospel choir, to use the histrionics and cadences of a televangelist (think Jimmy Swaggart) in an anti-consumerism effort to convert people to his “Church of Stop Shopping.” And for this year’s Black Friday shopping frenzy, Talen is upping his profile with a colorful campaign promoting a new documentary film about his efforts, “What Would Jesus Buy?” It will feature “elves on strike” at The Grove outdoor mall in Los Angeles and “Four Horsemen of the Shopocalypse” riding down Madison Avenue in New York, said Morgan Spurlock, who produced the film.
1 N’Golo Kante during training with France N’Golo Kante has played down speculation linking him with a move away from Leicester.The Frenchman has enjoyed a sensational debut Premier League campaign after arriving from Caen for £5.6million last summer.He was a virtual ever-present for the Foxes, playing a key role in the club’s remarkable title triumph, and was nominated for the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award, Kante’s rise has caught the attention of clubs across Europe, with Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus all linked with summer moves for the 25-year-old.But the midfielder, part of Didier Deschamps’ France squad for Euro 2016, insists he is not thinking about a summer exit and is focused only on his international duties.“For now, I am happy at Leicester,” he told L’Equipe. “I do not pay too much attention to everything that is said. For now, I am in Leicester and I focus on the Euros.“I think that my season at Leicester surprised everybody. People liked to see a new Premier League champion. We had a magnificent season.“And then, my debut with France went well. Maybe my journey also helps compared to other people who come from amateur football.“I try to stay the same. I am not aware that my personality is different.”

Calls about the shooting came into the station as well. Police later found Alvarado’s friends. Because the hospital doesn’t have a trauma unit, police said Alvarado was taken by helicopter to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he died of his wounds. Both suspects were described as Latinos in their 20s. The shooter was in a white hooded sweat shirt while his companion wore dark clothing, Bart said.

Sean Coll and Helen Haworth who have developed Portsalon Luxury Camping on a beautiful location in Portsalon overlooking Ballymastocker Bay.Tucked away on a hillside overlooking the spectacular Ballymastocker Bay, Donegal’s newest tourist destination – Portsalon Luxury Camping – is home to the county’s first yurt site and it all came about thanks to a chance meeting at a music festival in England that led to love! Yurts are wooden framed, canvas-covered structures that originate in Mongolia, but the owners of Portsalon Luxury camping Helen Haworth and Sean Coll, found themselves living in one on their own site in Portsalon a few years ago, and from there the idea of developing the tourist attraction grew.Helen was brought up in Shrewsbury in England before moving to Leeds but after meeting Sean at a music festival and experiencing the long-distance relationship thing for a while – (because Sean was living in Portsalon), she had to make a choice. “We visited each other every weekend we could manage for a while and quickly decided we would like to be together.“I loved inner city Leeds with its colourful and crazy characters and the constant buzz of activity but I had been there a long time and along with the vibrancy of the inner city came all of the dark side too.“I was tiring of it and craving a more peaceful existence.“Sean was also the main carer for his mother who lives in Portsalon, so when we had to choose between Leeds and Donegal, there was only going to be one winner,” said Helen. Sean had inherited a site once owned by his granddad that had passed through the family in Portsalon and although he had lived there for a while, he had moved away for a number of years and spent time working in Stoke and London before his return.The house on the site had been left to the elements for a number of years, but when Helen decided to come to live in Donegal they began to think about renovations.“We initially stayed in a rented property in Letterkenny but wanted to be as close to the site as possible when the work was being done.However, Sean didn’t want to live in a caravan during the renovation as he had done this as a 10-year old-boy when he arrived in Portsalon from Glasgow.“I had seen yurts years ago at an environmental centre in Yorkshire and loved them and we had also seen them at festivals. “So, we decided on a yurt, bought a build your own yurt book on Amazon and went about building our own to stay in during the renovation.Specialist local carpenter Andrew Gibbons helped Sean and Helen with the wooden frame and Helen sewed the canvas on a small sewing machine to make the first yurt on their fabulous site.And, it was while living there during the house renovations, that the couple first had ideas about renting it out to make some money after they had finished the renovation.Those plans soon took on a whole new life. To sound out the idea at the start, Helen attended a Big Step event hosted by Donegal County Enterprise Board, moved on to a Start your Own Business Course and then took a place on Donegal’s first Discovery Zone programme where she really tested the idea to the limits.“It was tough and challenging – particularly as throughout the course we were living in a yurt with no electric – no broadband – and no water!However Donegal County Enterprise Board were amazingly supportive and allowed use of their offices etc.Discovery Zone left me with a good robust business plan and the presentations mid and end definitely put forward our idea to some important contacts.The plan to maybe rent out one yurt also became a much bigger and much more viable enterprise than it ever had been.Among the contacts made at those Discovery Zone presentations were staff members from Donegal Local Development Company.The project was then funded by DLDC Ltd under the Rural Development (LEADER) Programme 2007-2013 and with that assistance and grant aid – and a lot of perseverance from Helen and Sean – Portsalon Luxury Camping became a reality and already guests have been flocking to the site.“We’ve had all sorts of setbacks along the way but we just kept going and stuck at it and we now have five luxurious Yurts (four of them constructed by LPM Bohemia) on a breath-taking site.In keeping with the natural beauty of the surroundings, guests can enjoy fresh salad and herbs in season from the garden and fresh eggs from the hens on the site, but of course there are luxurious amenities as well including brand new toilet and shower facilities, a beautiful new kitchen/lounge for guests and even free wi-fi.Some of the first guests have hailed from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Canada, Germany, Dublin and Inishowen and the site has received terrific reviews on Tripadvisor.“People are very interested and they are keen to see something different and unusual doing well in the area.“To let everyone know what the place is like we are holding an open day on Saturday 28th June from 2pm-5pm so people can call and have a look around some of the Yurts and the site, Sean said.He added that more information about the site can also be found on their website www.portsalonluxurycamping.com or by finding them on Facebook and Twitter.IT WON’T ‘YURT’ YOU TO VISIT DONEGAL’S NEWEST TOURIST DESTINATION was last modified: June 25th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AttractionsBusinessFeaturesnewstouristYurt
