SPORT-FOOT-IND 2 LAST

first_imgIndia found the equaliser three minutes before the lemon India found the equaliser three minutes before the lemon break with Jackichand, in his first touch, sent a fine cross from the right and the ball fell on Jeje after a dummy was sold by Passi inside the Laos box. Mizoram striker Jeje chested the ball down before slotting home past the Laos goalkeeper to the wild cheer of the home supporters. At the stroke of halftime, India took the lead with Passi, playing in his second international match, sending the ball into the empty net off a low cross from Jackichand from the left. This was Passis first international goal. India continued their domination in the second half with central defender Jhingan entering his name in the scoresheets seven minutes after resumption as his header off a Eugenson Lyngdoh free-kick beat the Laos defenders and the goalkeeper all ends up. With a 3-1 lead, India had taken the game away from the visitors reach but they did not relax a bit and scored three more goals against a hapless Laos to win the match in a tennis-like score and with one of the biggest margins in recent memory. Jeje, who has been in the form of his life, scored his second goal of the match, as he received a beautifully weighted pass from Chhetri and sent a powerful grounder past the Laos goalkeeper into the bottom left corner of the net. Passi made it 5-1 for India six minutes from the regulation time as his shot from the edge of the box off another Chhetri assist beat the Laos goalkeeper. Cardoza completed the rout and the misery for Laos as he headed into the Laos net off another assist from Jackichand three minutes before the final whistle. PTI PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img

‘Casemiro the world’s best defensive midfielder’

first_imgBrazil ‘Casemiro the world’s best defensive midfielder’ – Gilberto Silva Harry Sherlock Last updated 1 year ago 16:40 6/10/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(6) Casemiro Real Madrid Las Palmas Getty Images Brazil World Cup Real Madrid The Real Madrid star has been lauded by a former Selecao icon ahead of the World Cup getting underway in Russia Gilberto Silva has pinpointed Real Madrid star Casemiro as the best defensive midfielder in world football, and believes he will be key to Brazil’s chances of winning the World Cup in Russia.The Selecao face Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in Russia, but their minimum expectation will be reaching the last four of the competition.Casemiro is one of the more under-appreciated members of Brazil’s squad, with the likes of Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus all likely to garner more headlines in the build-up to the tournament. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva believes Casemiro is crucial to the side’s gameplan, and expects him to excel under manager Tite.”For me, Casemiro is one of the best, if not the best in the defensive midfield position,” the former Brazil midfielder told Sky Sports.”Since my retirement all the players that have played in this role for Brazil have played differently. With all respect to all of the other players that have played there, their style was completely different. At one point we had Paulinho playing with Ramires and they have the same style of play.”Neither of them played in the holding midfield role. However, now, with Casemiro, they have someone who holds the position and protects the back four. It frees up the attacking players.”It also frees up Paulinho. He can attack more and the combination between the two players works well. Casemiro’s role gives Paulinho the freedom to move forward and that’s good for Brazil because he’s very good when he gets himself into the box to get on the end of crosses.”Casemiro made 48 appearances for Real in all competitions this season, and played the full 90 minutes in his side’s 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool.last_img

Hanley Woods Architect Residential Architect to Become Associations Official Magazines

first_img“For the last 10 years, we’ve had a publishing partnership with the AIA, which concludes in December,” a McGraw-Hill Construction spokesperson said. “Working independently, we will be best positioned to provide a trusted voice, to serve the new and emerging needs of the architectural community and to advance our business interests.  “It appears that AIA was essentially looking for a custom publication they would control,” the spokesperson added. “That is not what the market needs now or in the future.” When contacted by FOLIO:, Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton declined to comment on the partnership other to say it is “in keeping with our belief that a focus on a single, large market remains the best strategy for b-to-b media companies.” This isn’t the first time the AIA has partnered with Hanley Wood. In 1976, the company’s founders served as the contract publishers for the association’s AIA Journal. Published 14 times annually, Hanley Wood’s Architect targets the commercial construction space and was launched, along with ArchitectMagazine.com, in 2006. It carries a BPA-audited circulation of 58,575. Residential Architect, which launched 12 years ago, carries a BPA-audited bimonthly circulation of 20,000.Hanley Wood also publishes Architectural Lighting, Concrete Construction and EcoHome magazines. The American Institute of Architects has selected Hanley Wood’s Architect and Residential Architect as the association’s official magazines. As part of the partnership—which has been agreed upon in principle and is expected to become effective in 2011—Hanley Wood Exhibitions will manage the AIA’s annual convention.While Hanley Wood will continue to own the magazines’ assets, starting next year it will collaborate with the AIA on editorial planning for both, and the AIA will have a dedicated section in each magazine to contribute content.The deal effectively ends a similar arrangement the AIA had with McGraw-Hill Construction and its Architectural Record magazine. It was not immediately clear what precipitated the change. Phil Simon, AIA’s marketing and promotions managing director, did not return a request seeking comment. last_img

Revitalized Market Square May Lure Houstonians Downtown

first_img X 00:00 /03:52 Listen – / 8Market Square Park, in the north end of downtown, is on the verge of becoming the city’s newest hotspot. It’s brimming with new bars, restaurants, residences and the park that itself has had a makeover.It didn’t happen overnight. It took a decade of investment and planning from the Downtown District and the Downtown Redevelopment Authority, two organizations tasked with imagining and implementing improvements. Angie Bertinot with the Downtown District laughs when she hears from people who think the area revitalized all on its own. “They’re like ‘You don’t need incentives, look at Market Square, that just happened,’” she said. “And I was just like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’”In 2010, the Downtown District renovated the park, which signaled that they were serious about waking up Market Square.“We really thought it could be an economic development tool because the area was really starting to kind of go through a stressful situation,” Bertinot said.Next they got advice from the Urban Land Institute. The report urged them to build housing, specifically housing that would be “affordable to a broad spectrum of those working in downtown.”The report said if you want a vibrant, 24/7 neighborhood, you need retail. If you want retail, you need residents. And the land downtown is really expensive, so if you want residents, you’ll need incentives to make it more affordable.So they kicked off the Downtown Living Initiative, a program offering tax rebates to developers.The 32-story Aris Market Square, developed by Hines, is almost complete. It’s one of two new luxury apartment buildings directly facing the square, both built with funding from the Downtown Living Initiative.“The tax incentive program really helped to bridge the gap of what the required asking land price was and what we were able to afford,” said David Haltom, a director at Hines.Haltom said the tower wouldn’t exist without the rebates. Some of their neighbors said that was money well spent. Dan Tidwell first opened his restaurant Treebeards in Market Square in 1978, and he said developers got a good deal.“When you have the Wortham Center and the ballpark and all of these things that are not going away, and you have someone offering you some money, it was really a winning combination.”He lives a short walk from the restaurant. So does David Haltom, working on the Aris Market Square building.“I get to walk to work every day,” he said.That’s pretty much what the Urban Land Institute recommended in 2012, that an incentive program build housing for people who work downtown.But did they have in mind two luxury buildings with one bedroom apartments starting around $2,700 a month?Bill Fulton is the director of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University. He said the Downtown Living Initiative was simply about getting people to live downtown. Anybody.   “In Houston, what you’re trying to do is use a financial incentive to encourage people to build residential development at all, rather than something else,” Fulton said.That’s why he said you could consider the initiative a success.“On the other hand, in most cities, if the city provided you with a substantial financial incentive to build housing, they probably would require affordable housing in return,” he said.Critics say that the funding shouldn’t go to building luxury housing. The program has handed out money to 16 projects and the total amount may reach $69 million in tax incentives.   Ryan Leach is the executive director of the Downtown Redevelopment Authority. He said the Market Square Park area isn’t done. Workforce housing could come next.“Now that we’re kind of on a roll with that and we have some momentum with that, I think that there’s an opportunity there for us to focus on really creating workforce housing and affordable housing in a way that it really increases the downtown living population,” he said.

Go homebased and get a bigger share of your commission survey

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Go home-based and get a bigger share of your commission: survey Tuesday, March 13, 2018 Share Posted bycenter_img A recent nationwide survey of home based agents funded by The Travel Agent Next Door and conducted by an independent research company shows that the majority of home-based agents are earning more than they did working in a bricks-and-mortar agency.No doubt this is a major contributing factor to the growth of the home-based retail travel industry here in Canada, following the trend in other markets including the UK and the U.S. According to the survey an estimated 37% of travel agents in Canada are now independent, home-based contractors.A significant 61% of agents reported that they earned 10% – 30% more than in the past working at a bricks-and-mortar location, and 23.5% said they are earning 30%+.The second annual independent nationwide survey of Canadian hosted travel agents, conducted in January 2018, tripled in response size, making the results much more meaningful than the previous year.The survey results also show that 85% of home-based agents have the opportunity to earn 50% or more of the available commission and 47% said they can earn 75% or more of the available commission.The majority of home-based agents surveyed, 72.6%, said they earn a greater share of commission as a home-based agent compared to working in a travel agency.When asked to rate their current compensation package with their host agency, 73.7% said they were ‘mostly to 100% satisfied’, and 25.4% said they were 100% satisfied with their compensation.The survey also explored the costs to agents to join host agencies, beyond the monthly or annual fees. Most agents are getting most services covered by their base fee.The survey also asked agents about the monthly website fee they pay to their host agency. About eight out of 10 (79%) of agents who responded to this question said they don’t pay a monthly fee for their website.When asked if they pay a monthly marketing fee to their host agency, 82% of agents who responded to this question said they do not pay an additional marketing fee to their host agent because it is included in their monthly fee.The survey also asked the question: ‘What is the invoicing fee you pay to your host agency?’ More than 85% of the agents who responded to this question do not pay an invoicing fee to their host agency.
