first_imgWASHINGTON – Former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin downplayed concerns about his potential successor’s lack of managerial experience Monday, saying the key for improving the VA will be surrounding White House doctor Ronny Jackson with a good team “because no one person can do this alone.”Shulkin and the White House have engaged in a highly public campaign surrounding his departure from the VA last week. Shulkin said he was fired. The White House said he resigned.On Monday, Shulkin told CNN there was no reason he would resign. He said he had been given a heads-up on his ouster by Chief of Staff John Kelly moments before President Donald Trump tweeted it.Shulkin said he supports the person President Donald Trump selected to replace him.“I have comfort because I know Dr. Jackson,” Shulkin said. “Dr. Jackson is a very honourable man who wants to do the right thing.”Shulkin’s comments represented a different tone from the fractious back-and-forth Sunday when the White House hit back at Shulkin for claiming that he was fired from his job and that he was only informed about it shortly before President Donald Trump tweeted about his replacement.The Trump administration says he left his job willingly amid a bruising ethics scandal and mounting rebellion within the agency.On Sunday, chagrined by Shulkin’s public statements blaming his ouster on unfair “political forces” in the Trump administration, the White House circulated a “talking points” memo to some veterans groups in a bid to discredit him.The three-page memo, obtained by The Associated Press, points out seven “lies” that it said Shulkin had spread. They include statements in which he minimizes a VA watchdog report in February that concluded he violated ethics rules by accepting free Wimbledon tennis tickets. The VA inspector general has previously found Shulkin made misleading statements about the trip to investigators and the news media.In television interviews earlier Sunday, Shulkin said he had not submitted a resignation letter, or planned to, and was only told of Trump’s decision to replace him shortly before the Twitter announcement. He said he had spoken to Trump by phone earlier that day about VA improvements, with no mention of his job status, and was scheduled to meet with the president the next morning.“I came to run the Department of Veterans Affairs because I’m committed to veterans,” Shulkin said. “And I would not resign because I’m committed to making sure this job was seen through to the very end.”Last week, Trump named Defence Department official Robert Wilkie to the acting position, bypassing Shulkin’s deputy secretary, Tom Bowman. Bowman has come under criticism for being too moderate to push Trump’s agenda.Under federal law, a president has wide authority to temporarily fill a federal agency job if someone “dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office.” There is no mention of a president having that authority if the person is fired. Still, it’s unclear if courts would seek to draw a legal distinction between a firing and a forced resignation, if that is indeed what happened to Shulkin.The day after announcing he was replacing Shulkin, Trump told a rally in Richfield, Ohio, that he had been dissatisfied with efforts to improve the VA. Shulkin had enjoyed Trump’s support for much of his first year in the administration, but that eroded in February after mounting ethics questions and political infighting at the VA.Wilkie, now listed on the VA website as acting secretary, took over Shulkin’s duties last week.The back and forth over the circumstances behind Shulkin’s departure — and what it could mean for Wilkie’s status — comes as the nomination of Jackson is drawing concern among lawmakers and veterans groups. They worry the Navy rear admiral and lifelong physician lacks the experience to manage an enormous agency paralyzed over Trump’s push to expand private care.Trump’s new Cabinet nominees also are beginning to pile up in the Senate, likely leading to weeks of confirmation battles and other delays in the run-up to congressional midterm elections in November. That could mean an extended reign for an acting VA secretary.Shulkin’s dismissal comes amid a broader shakeup of top Trump administration officials and accusations of excessive spending by Cabinet officials. Also currently under fire are Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.Shulkin had agreed to reimburse the government more than $4,000 after the VA’s internal watchdog concluded last month that he had improperly accepted Wimbledon tennis tickets and that his then-chief of staff had doctored emails to justify his wife travelling to Europe with him at taxpayer expense. Shulkin also blamed internal drama at the agency on a half-dozen or so rebellious political appointees, insisting he had White House backing to fire them.___Associated Press writer Darlene Superville contributed from Palm Beach, Florida.last_img read more

Ardrossan Coastguard Rescue Team A young girl and her father were rescued after she was blown out to sea on an inflatable unicorn.The local coastguard issued a warning about the “dangers of inflatables” after the incident at Irvine Beach Park in Ayrshire on Saturday.Ardrossan Coastguard Rescue Team spotted the girl “some distance away from the shore”, with her father swimming out to try to rescue her.Both were brought safely back to the shoreline, the coastguard said in a post on Facebook.They had both swallowed sea water and were checked by paramedics and taken to hospital as a precaution.  Kevin Paterson, Station Officer of the Ardrossan Coastguard Rescue Team, said: “This was an incredibly lucky escape for the young girl and her father after a sunny day at the beach quickly turned into an emergency.”Fortunately in this instance, Coastguard rescue assets were already on scene as the incident unfolded and were quick to react with additional resources being immediately launched to the area.”Inflatables are not designed or suitable for use in the sea, especially on days like today when the wind is blowing off shore. These inflatables should only be used in swimming pools where there’s no risk of being blown out to sea and there’s lifeguards on duty. “We would urge everyone to leave their inflatables at home when visiting the beach, or if you were thinking of buying one on the way, spending your money on something else.”Thankfully today’s incident had a positive outcome with only the inflatable unicorn being lost to the sea.” Ardrossan Coastguard Rescue Team saved the girl and her father Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_imgDiego Maradona has doubts about reports that Argentina players picked the team instead of Jorge Sampaoli at the World Cup.After Argentina’s 3-0 defeat to Croatia, there were reports that Sampaoli would relinquish his selection responsibilities for the crunch clash against Nigeria, with his players wanting him changed and replaced with general manager Jorge Burruchaga.The Argentina’s legend described such reports as would have been outrageous and even went further to says that’s not possible.Maradona was an exuberant attendee in St Petersburg and does not believe the players are in charge of picking the line-up.“I don’t believe that’s possible. If that happened, it’s better not to have a coach,” he told Marca via Goal.“I think it’s outrageous, anyway.

After being at Atletico nearly all my life, and then going to Madrid—the fans did not like it. But these are things that happen in football. What the fans say will not affect me” he commented.The former Alaves defender spoke at length about his decision to swap Atletico for Real Madrid:“It was very complicated, it was not an easy decision.

I had criticism from all angles, everything I did was wrong.”“But as the months went by, I found myself calmer, happier.

Rice growing into defensive midfield role

first_imgWest Ham United midfielder Declan Rice is relishing playing in central defensive midfield for the Hammers this season.After an impressive pre-season, Rice has established himself in the West Ham team this season under Manuel Pellegrini.The 19-year-old’s frequent involvement in the team also coincided with West Ham’s return to form starting with their 3-1 victory at Everton.“I’d say Everton away was my best performance since I came back in, because we’d lost the first four and we couldn’t lose five in a row,” Rice told the club’s website.“The manager changed the team up and we went out there, everyone played really well, we won our first game and got the three points and there’s no better feeling than that, to be honest.“If you compare the first game I played at Liverpool compared to the ones I’m playing now, my positioning at Anfield wasn’t the best for a holding midfielder.Mason MountRice tips Mount for greater things Taimoor Khan – September 11, 2019 Declan Rice says that Mason Mount is going to match the exploits of Frank Lampard when he was in his prime during his playing…“Positioning is one of the main things when you play in that position because you’ve always got to play in the center of the pitch.“I always look back at that Liverpool game because it was the first time I’d played CDM (central defensive midfielder) in a while and I was not really in the back four, I was wide, and sometimes it’s not about that.“You’ve just got to hold your position and trust that the ball is going to come near you.“I think, since I’ve started to do that, the amount of interceptions and tackles I have made has gone up.”last_img read more

PSU energy firms to set up startup fund

September 5, 2019 | gzfrmzwx | No Comments

first_imgPublic sector oil and gas companies in India will set up a fund to help innovative start-ups in the energy sector to bootstrap, said Union Petroleum and Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan at the Natural Gas Vision 2025 conference, the Mint reported. The start-up fund, still in its infancy to be clearly spelt out, wishes to create a corpus that would be utilised to invest in new business models and bring efficiency. Heads of the state-run oil companies will take part in the government’s start-up initiative. “Any start-up needing hand-holding can seek support from the fund. Public sector companies will independently evaluate the commercial viability of the project and take a decision on their equity participation,” Pradhan was quoted by the Mint as saying. Stressing the importance of energy to the country in the coming days, Pradhan said: “Indian intellectual capacity is contributing immensely to the global oil and gas economy. We would like the Indian energy market too to benefit from that capacity.””The PSUs are working on setting up a venture capital fund to encourage start-ups to develop new business models, marketing plans, technology and innovation in hydrocarbon arena,” the minister was quoted by the Financial Express. A PwC survey on India Gas Sector 2016 was unveiled during the day. Gas is the future of energy in India and it is the 21st century fuel, highlighted the report and added that it would soon contribute 15 percent of the country’s energy mix.”The government must play an active role by creating infrastructure first, without a great emphasis on immediate demand. It should act as a facilitator and developer of infrastructure,” according to the report. “Regulatory reforms are key to the seamless development of the gas sector.” Pradhan seemed confident of India’s import dependence on energy to be reduced by 10 percent by 2022. For that to happen, the production of gas is crucial, he added. Welcoming such an effort, former chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Ranbir Singh Butola said the minister believes the fund will cater to innovation across the entire oil and gas value chain. “There will be many takers for it, especially those who seek to cater to the consumer end of the energy industry,” he added. The move is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s idea of promoting entrepreneurship, innovation and self employment. The government launched a start-up initiative last year and brought out an action plan in January 2016.last_img read more

Sony has a great games brand with PlayStation but has been slow to leverage that in its smartphone business. It really needs to go for it.”Could wearables save Sony?Wearables have been a key part of technology companies’ strategy over the past year with Apple releasing its Watch and Sony coming to the party too with its SmartWatch 3 and SmartBand Talk.
