Get Alli! Tunisia coach singles out Dele the dangerman

first_img0Shares0000Dele Alli has been identified as England’s danger man by Tunisia’s coach © AFP / PAUL ELLISVOLGOGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 17 – Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul has singled out England’s Dele Alli as his side’s most dangerous opponent as he prepared for their World Cup Group G opener at the Volgograd Arena on Monday.The confident coach, in his second spell as national team boss, said his side could beat England and open the door to progressing from the group stages and to the quarter-finals. “Why not?” he told reporters ahead of his side’s final training session in Volgograd on Sunday.“Our team is ready,” he added, referring to recent warm-up results where they drew with Portugal and lost narrowly to Spain.“We played well in friendlies. We did well and we expect to do the same here.”But he stressed that to do well against England, Tunisia had to keep Alli quiet, and confessed he was an admirer of the 22-year-old Tottenham midfielder.“He is a great player,” said Maaloul. “He is a midfielder who can play anywhere: centre, forward or deep midfield, up front on his own or wide on the left.“We know how easily Alli and Kane can find each other and their understanding so must divide them.“The most dangerous thing for me is the way he sees the match and plays the last pass.”The Tunisian coach placed England among the favourites to win the World Cup despite their abject record in recent major tournaments.The Three Lions failed to get out of their group in Brazil in 2014 and were humiliated by Iceland in Euro 2016 in France.“I was in the stadium when they played Iceland,” he said. “Now they are a more stronger side. The result is not going to be the same tomorrow.“We have pressure and they have pressure to do well. We are representing Africa and the Arabic world. They are one of the favourites to win the World Cup.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Russell Simmons And RushCard Support PopUp Grocery And Nutritional Center In Flint

first_imgFlint Community Grocery, powered by Fresh Start CDC, launched its first pop-up grocery store on Saturday, April 16, 2016, on the campus of New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church located at 1035 E. Carpenter Road.Flint residents were encouraged to come out and shop for high-quality produce and other premium all-natural food products. RushCard, a prepaid debit card company co-founded by Russell Simmons, made a donation to support the effort.Flint Community Grocery is a local initiative to provide access to better quality wholesome and organic food products to the residents of Flint, Michigan. Fresh Start CDC is a non-profit organization that was established in 2014 by New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church to enhance economic development in Flint and surrounding communities by providing a one-stop model to enhance the availability of nutritional foods and preventative healthcare for residents of north Flint.Residents were provided with a high-quality shopping experience that aimed to assist in addressing the immediate need for fresh food to help combat the effects of lead poisoning. Within the past two years, three full-service grocery stores in Flint have permanently closed their doors with little notice, creating a food desert. Nutrition and cooking classes were also provided at no cost to community members to help them learn fun and creative new meals to prepare with fresh produce.“What’s happening in Flint is a reflection of how both the government, with the water crisis, and the private sector, with the fresh food shortage, have fallen short in serving community needs,” said Russell Simmons. “As a natural extension of our ongoing effort to provide for underserved communities, RushCard is supporting this emergency pop-up in hopes it will highlight the reality of food deserts across this country. We invite citizens and corporations to join in supporting this effort.”RushCard’s support of Flint Community Grocery is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to support the people of Flint. In February, RushCard co-founder Russell Simmons visited Flint to distribute 150,000 bottles of drinking water to RushCard customers and called on other corporations to step up and support the people of Flint during the water crisis.last_img read more

Fisheries and Oceans meet with Mikmaq community in a show of reconciliation

first_imgAngel MooreAPTN NewsIn a first of its kind in the Maritime region of eastern Canada, employees with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) met with members of the Mi’kmaq community to build a better relationship.Elder Noel Milliea says the ultimate goal is to change perceptions.Milliea is from Elsipogtog. He was asked by the DFO to speak at this meeting. The Elder teaches health and healing in his community.“So when we try to look at the parallels that both of us have, we come to understand a little bit about why we are the way we are on both sides,” said Millieau.“Why is there so much racism and why is there so much systemic trauma.”The DFO and the Mi’kmaq dispute over fisheries has a long history.The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1999, that the Mi’kmaq had a right to commercially fish and support a moderate livelihood.The decision, known as the Marshall decision, is based on treaty rights signed in 1760 and 1761.It was a win for the Mi’kmaq, economically and culturally.But the decision did not solve the disagreements of how much fish the Mi’kmaq had a right to catch because the two sides haven’t been able to agree upon the definition of moderate livelihood.This has led to disputes and anger on both sides.At the three days of meetings, history was discussed – as a shared history between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.Trevor Sanipass says it’s the responsibility of everyone to educate themselves and others.“You know treaties were signed by two parties, so the treaties are not just the Aboriginal treaty it’s by all its their ancestors and our ancestors signed these agreements,” said Sanipass.The DFO said it wants its staff to become aware, and have a better understanding of Indigenous history.Debbie Boutt-Matheson said this will help with everyday interactions and perceptions.”You don’t always necessarily always think about it that way so that for me was a really great sort of dawning moment of I haven’t thought about it like that before and I have to think about it like that,” said Matheson.According to Millieau, relationships are already improving with the DFO reaching out to the community.”Hopefully it will make a difference in building relationships meaningful relationships with them in how they engage in our first nations communities,” Milliea said.Sanipass gives the government credit for taking the step to learn from community members.”What better way of doing it is really having first nations people, elders, educators, leaders and share this information, not just from our own people but to others as well,” said Sanipass.The DFO said it plans to offer more staff learning opportunities to develop positive relationships with Indigenous [email protected]@angelharksenlast_img read more
