first_imgAdvertisement Comment Mikel Arteta has been active in the transfer market already this summer (Picture: Getty)Mikel Arteta has been impressed with the way new signings Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian have adapted ahead of their possible Arsenal debuts against Fulham on Saturday.The Gunners will begin their new Premier League campaign at Craven Cottage against Scott Parker’s newly promoted side amid something of a defensive injury crisis. Five of Arsenal’s senior central defenders have been ruled out of the London derby, which could force Arteta to select his £27million recruit from Lille at the earliest possible opportunity. Arsenal enjoyed success during last season’s run-in operating with a 3-4-3 formation, but with Gabriel, fellow new boy William Saliba and Rob Holding the only three fit recognised central defenders available, the Arsenal manager could be forced into switching systems. AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAt the other end of the pitch, Gabriel’s compatriot Willian is likely to make his first competitive Arsenal appearance since his summer switch from Chelsea and Arteta believes both will prove to be hugely influential throughout the course of the new season. Advertisement Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba could make their Arsenal debuts against Fulham (Picture: Getty)‘They have been training really well,’ said Arteta when asked if Gabriel and Willian were in line to feature at Fulham. ‘They have adapted quickly. ‘They are really excited to be here with us, really good energy from both of them. Big talent, both in very different phases of their career. ‘One is already very established in the Premier League with incredible quality. And another one that has to adapt to this league but has huge potential to become a key player for us in the future.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

That’s something normal that we have to try to adapt to. ‘We’ve been trying with the players that we have fit at the moment. It’s not an ideal to start the season with some key players out but again, we have enough really good players and tomorrow we will have the best possible plan to try and win our first game.’MORE: Arsenal bad boy Matteo Guendouzi has rejected three offers to leaveMORE: Barcelona ready to include player in cash-plus-swap deal for Arsenal star Hector BellerinFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

first_imgABP, the €389bn Dutch civil service scheme, has directly invested €327m in the construction of the largest wind farm in mainland Sweden.The Åskalen project – comprising 80 turbines – would generate sufficient energy to power the equivalent of 300,000 Dutch households, the pension fund said.Åskalen is the first wind farm in which ABP has taken a 100% stake, cutting out external managers and their fees, according to Harmen Geers, spokesman for APG, ABP’s asset manager.He said that direct investment would give ABP increased control of the 288-megawatt project, which was crucial for getting the project into the construction phase. The pension fund intended to follow this approach in future projects as well, he added. Åskalen will be built in co-operation with Vasa Wind as operational manager, its owner Hg Capital, and Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas.ABP – which already has stakes in more than 100 wind farms worldwide – said the investment in Åskalen contributed to its target of reaching €5bn worth of investments in clean energy by 2020. This is to be achieved through infrastructure, private and public equity, and green bonds.ABP has also invested €250m in Norwegian hydropower operator Småkraft through a joint venture with German asset manager Aquila Capital. With the additional financial firepower of another €250m from debt financing loans, the joint venture has acquired or built approximately 100 small hydropower plants in Norway, annually generating 1 terawatt of clean energy.APG’s Geers said that Småkraft intended to double this capacity by 2020.With the investment in wind farm Åskalen, the civil service scheme has increased its entire clean energy portfolio to more than €3.1bn.Commenting on the investment, Corien Wortmann-Kool, ABP’s chair, emphasised that it was important to the fund to contribute to clean energy transition and the climate goals of the Paris Agreement, as one of the largest pension funds in the world.“ABP wants to provide its 2.9m participants with a decent pension in a sustainable way,” Wortmann saidlast_img read more

Rigorous standards urged for medicinal cannabis

September 27, 2020 | mfhfzdun | No Comments

first_imgOtago Daily Times 3 May 2019Family First Comment: “Patients were vulnerable and often immune compromised, so active ingredients in any medicine prescribed to them needed to be controlled and carefully labelled….. The quality control rigours for classification as a medicine . . . are safeguards that should not be compromised or redefined without a careful consideration of the consequences, many of which could be unintended.”Exactly what we’ve been saying. www.saynopetodope.org.nz/medicinalWhen the government finalises its medicinal cannabis scheme it needs to clearly define what “medicinal” cannabis is, University of Otago academics say.The Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill, passed by Parliament in December, introduced an exception and a statutory defence for terminally ill people to possess and use illicit cannabis.It also gave the Government a year to draft regulations for a medicinal cannabis scheme.In the latest edition of the New Zealand Medical Journal, Otago academics Prof Michelle Glass and Associate Prof John Ashton, of  the departments of pharmacology and toxicology, have argued for cannabis-based medicines to be subject to the same rigorous standards as other medicines.“Cannabis is not a single entity but a diverse range of related substances and products all referred to as ‘cannabis’ in popular usage,” they said.“Which of these may be considered a medicine depends on precisely how the product is constituted.”Medicines worked by delivering precisely measured combinations of chemicals to produce a therapeutic effect, the authors said.Cannabis, on the other hand, could be one of several plant species and the amount of its active ingredients cannabidiol (CB) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) could vary widely.“Uniformity is a central feature of medicines, but concentrations of CB and THC in cannabis plants vary widely.READ MORE: https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/health/rigorous-standards-urged-medicinal-cannabisKeep up with family issues in NZ.

first_img “It’s a tough result to take,” said Howe. “I was really pleased with the performance bar the last 15 minutes where we panicked and made some bad decisions on the ball. “But we dominated possession and chances, they only got in our box twice in the whole game and of course they’ve scored from one of those. “Sometimes football does play tricks on you where you can be so dominant and still lose the game. “The challenge for us is to come out of this spell, and when we do we’ll be a lot stronger for it. “One or two of them I felt we could have done better with, but the keeper had a very good day. “The pleasing thing is that we did create chances, and we haven’t always been like that this season. “We have to keep getting in the right places. “I thought Josh King had his best game in a Bournemouth shirt despite not scoring, I thought he was excellent. “He’s getting chances now. Before that he’d played effectively but not really tested goalkeepers or got in positions to score. “So I think he’s moving in the right direction.” Manager Howe has vowed the Cherries will stay true to their long-held ambitions of top-flight security through a quality approach, despite slipping into the relegation zone. Bournemouth lost out 1-0 at home to Newcastle on Saturday despite dominating territory, possession and chances, but Howe insists his side can still step away from trouble. Press Association Eddie Howe will not abandon his possession principles as Bournemouth’s quest for Premier League survival intensifies. The Cherries must face Everton, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal before the turn of the year, but Howe remains confident Bournemouth will continue to grow into their Premier League campaign. “If you can find me a way that’s different to dominating the ball and dominating chances that guarantees you winning games I’d be surprised to hear it,” said Howe. “I’ve made it very clear since day one of pre-season: we’re not going to change our style of football for anybody. “I still believe our style can and will be effective at this level, we just have to keep going.” Howe had hoped Bournemouth could head into the international break with a confidence-boosting third league win of the campaign on Saturday. Instead Newcastle produced a smash-and-grab raid, Ayoze Perez poking home his side’s only shot on target with goalkeeper Rob Elliot producing a string of fine saves to deny the hosts. Former Magpies defender Sylvain Distin sat stunned on the pitch at the final whistle as the size of Bournemouth’s top-flight task hit home. Josh King failed to make the most of several promising openings, leaving Howe still backing the Norway forward to come good in front of goal. last_img read more
