Doping: Justice still elusive for dope-tainted boxer Manjeet

first_imgJust as Manjeet Singh’s career was beginning to take off, the young boxer was dealt a body blow when he tested positive for a banned substance.That was a year ago. He is yet to get a proper hearing before the anti-doping disciplinary panel.The 22-year-old Manjeet, who is a railways employee, arrived for his hearing on Tuesday with former Indian boxing team doctor Karanjeet Singh but the hearing had to be adjourned till August 5 as one of the panel members did not arrive.Worse still, the 2007 Asian Championships bronze medallist is posted in Kolkata and has to make the journey to the Capital for the hearings, none of which have been conclusive so far. Karanjeet, who was with the Indian boxing team till the Delhi Common wealth Games, arrived from Himachal Pradesh where he is working as a medical officer, to testify that he had prescribed soframycin to Manjeet after the boxer suffered a road accident.The doctor claims that he had even written to the Indian Boxing Federation (IBF) that the doctors at the NIS, Patiala, had applied clostebol on the wounds due to which he tested positive.”I checked the records at NIS, Patiala, and found that the nurse at the medical centre had used clostebol on his wounds, the substance for which he has tested positive,” Karanjeet told Mail Today. Records available with Manjeet also claim that the ointment applied on him was clostebol. But the records that NIS, Patiala, have furnished does not have any mention of using clostebol on Manjeet’s wounds.advertisementDefence counsel Rohit Kaliyar claims that NIS officials have fudged the records and the ones with him are authentic. Manjeet is worried that he hasn’t been given a proper hearing.”I am aware of what all has happened. I know that Manjeet hasn’t done anything wrong and it is only because of a mistake by NIS officials that Manjeet has landed into this soup. “But if this is how it works here, I won’t be able to come back again to testify. I get nothing for coming here. I have to bear my own expenses and don’t even get paid leaves to appear before the panel,” Karanjeet said.A senior scientific officer, who came from Patiala with the records, also said he won’t be able to attend the hearing on August 5.”I have to be present at the NIS on August 5 as Justice Mukul Mudgal, who is looking into the recent dope scandal, will be in Patiala. So I won’t be able to attend the next hearing,” the NIS official said.last_img read more

You have to work yourself until the end and my boys did it, so we must look ahead to the next challenge at home.”He continued: “We are learning every day, since last season. What we try is to concentrate on ourselves. We know that we must do better to compete against such a big and fantastic team.“There’s always a challenge for us. We can’t erase the game from our memories, but we’ll try because what is important is the next one.” last_img read more

For three or four months I don’t know what will happen.”Both were incredible tonight. Nico showed incredible personality after what happened in the previous game.”We need another solution — Rodri or Kyle Walker maybe — because they cannot play every game at their age.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

New details emerge about proposed payment to Manitoba Metis Federation

first_imgWINNIPEG – The former board chairman of Manitoba Hydro criticized Premier Brian Pallister on Thursday and defended a planned $67-million payment to the Manitoba Metis Federation.“What we need is a strong board, and we need a premier who’s prepared to take leadership in addressing some very significant issues that Hydro faces,” Sanford Riley told The Canadian Press.Riley and eight of the other nine board members at the Crown corporation quit en masse Wednesday. They said they had been unable to secure a meeting with Pallister for more than a year to discuss key issues.Pallister said the dispute stems from a proposal submitted by the board last fall to pay the Metis federation $67 million over 20 years in relation to new Hydro developments.The planned payment was unusual, Pallister said, because it did not appear to compensate anyone for lost land or displacement. Instead, the money would have been in exchange for a federation promise not to oppose several projects, including a new transmission line to the United States, the premier said.The government halted the deal, partly to protect taxpayers from having to pay “persuasion money” and partly to protect the rights of future generations of Metis to seek regulatory reviews or question future projects.“I don’t think … that signing off on your rights, at the expense of your children, is the right thing to do,” Pallister said.A copy of the proposed deal, obtained by The Canadian Press, said the Metis federation would not oppose projects currently underway as well as future domestic transmission lines, less than 250 kilometres in length, for up to 50 years.The proposal said the federation would have to support Manitoba Hydro licence applications and “agree not to appeal or contest any approvals or licences issued.”Riley said the proposal made sense in light of recent court rulings that have supported Metis rights. In 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled the country’s 600,000 Metis have many of the same rights as First Nations individuals, including the right to be consulted.Riley said the payment could be lower than the cost of legal challenges and compensation for upcoming Manitoba Hydro projects.“This made more sense from a financial and from a social perspective.”He called Pallister’s criticism “deeply cynical, offensive to the board … and wrong.”While there is no mention of lost land in the proposed deal, Metis federation president David Chartrand said the money was partly to compensate for land cleared for hydro poles.“There was clear-cutting that was done in traditional areas that were used for cultural events or berry-picking,” Chartrand said earlier this week.“We have some very famous areas where we pick our blueberries … and so it (would have) helped to develop new blueberry areas.”Riley and some other board members have Progressive Conservative connections and were appointed by the Tory government less than two years ago.Riley has served in advisory and support roles over the years for former Tory leaders. He is also a successful business executive. He said this dispute is not about partisan politics.“I’m not interested in the partisan stuff that goes on around this. I’m interested in doing the right thing for Manitoba.”Pallister said a new board would be appointed Friday.last_img read more

Ocean Resort Casino changing hands

first_imgATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Atlantic City’s Ocean Resort Casino is changing hands after just six months of operation, the latest indication that the New Jersey seaside resort may have bitten off more than it can chew when it reopened two shuttered casinos last summer.The property formerly known as Revel is being acquired by an outside company that will make a major investment into it.Bruce Deifik, the current owner, would not identify the new company, which would assume majority ownership of the casino.The new owner will make a $70 million investment in Ocean Resort, which plans to remain open. The transaction is expected to be finalized Thursday.The new owner would need to be licensed by state gambling regulators and its identity made known before that. Deifik and his family will retain a small, non-controlling ownership interest in the property.“It has been truly an honour for myself and my family to have taken this property, opened its doors and brought back the players, the families, the convention guests and the sports betting enthusiasts,” Deifik said. “My family and I want to thank the 3,000-plus employees at Ocean for their tireless work to bring our property to life and put it on track to become the best gaming property in New Jersey. If approved and closed, this next round of investment into Ocean will put this property on an exciting path to growth.”Ocean Resort was one of two formerly shuttered casinos that reopened the same day last June, along with Hard Rock.The reopenings brought Atlantic City’s casino total to nine, shortly after five casinos had shut down in a market that could not support them all. The Atlantic Club, Showboat, Revel and Trump Plaza all closed in 2014, and the Trump Taj Mahal closed in 2016. (The Taj Mahal reopened as Hard Rock last year.)The revival of the two casinos immediately raised questions as to whether Atlantic City was making the same mistake that led to the first wave of casino shutdowns: having too many casinos for them all to thrive.In its first incarnation as Revel, the $2.4 billion casino lasted just over two years before closing in 2014. Florida developer Glenn Straub bought it out of bankruptcy court for $82 million, and sold it last year to Deifik, a Colorado developer, for $200 million.Deifik decided to buy the casino sight unseen just over a year ago on the recommendation of his advisers, and set about renovating it, adding an indoor golf facility and one of the state’s most extensive sports betting facilities.He and his management team said they were confident they had fixed what went wrong with Revel. Deifik reconfigured the maze-like casino floor, allowed smoking on it again, welcomed gamblers of all income and playing levels, and placed a premium on customer service.He took over Ocean Resort with far less debt than what sank Revel. But the casino’s gambling revenue remained near the bottom of the pack along Atlantic City’s nine casinos.In November, the last month for which statistics are available, Ocean Resort won $15.2 million from gamblers, a figure that trailed every casino in Atlantic City except Bally’s, which won $14.5 million for the month. By comparison, the Borgata, Atlantic City’s market leader, won $61.5 million in November.In the third quarter of 2018, Ocean Resort had a gross operating profit of $1.4 million. Although it was only open since the end of June, it badly trailed Hard Rock, which opened on the same day as Ocean Resort, and posted a gross operating profit of $8.2 million.The casino plans to use the new funds to open a buffet, additional suites and rooms, and investments on the casino floor. It also plans “a substantial increase” in its entertainment programming and player events in 2019.___Follow Wayne Parry at http://twitter.com/WayneParryACWayne Parry, The Associated Presslast_img read more

City staff help rescue ducklings caught down storm drain

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Staff from the City of Fort St. John’s Bylaw Enforcement and Public Works department stepped out of their usual duties this week to help the North Peace SPCA rescue a brood of ducklings that had gotten stuck down a storm drain.North Peace SPCA branch manager Candace Buchamer said the SPCA got a report at around noon on Wednesday of a number of ducklings that had fallen down a storm drain near the Fort St. John Hospital. Buchamer said that with the SPCA being short-staffed that day, one of the city’s bylaw officers responded to the situation, and managed to rescue all but one of what was believe to be a group of five baby ducks.The fifth was reportedly too scared of the officer and managed to scurry out of reach, and the SPCA resolved to get the duckling rescued the next day.On Thursday, staff with the City’s Public Works Department went back out to the storm drain and were able to rescue not one, but two more ducklings from the drain. Sadly, though the area is known as prime duck territory, a search was unable to find the mother duck and her remaining brood. Buchamer said that though the ducklings fell directly onto the cement at the bottom of the storm drain, the ducklings are all in excellent health. She said that the group of infants have left the SPCA, having been sent to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Smithers to give them a chance at being released into the wild.last_img read more
