Attacking-wise I think we’ve got much more of a threat; Richarlison has come in, Bernard, Theo (Walcott) is flying, Mola (Ademola Lookman) is flying. So you’ve got a lot of choices here.“For Everton, I would say hopefully return back to Europe,” Pickford said. “I know the fans love it, and it’s a great status to have, and it’s quite tough being in Europe. It’s a stepping stone again from last season.“We’ve still got the FA Cup to play for, and the fans want some silverware, something to smile about. It would be a massive bonus, if not this year for Everton, then in the next few seasons.“Regarding England, we’ve got the opportunity to get some silverware. I know it’s a new competition, but it’s silverware, and we go in with the belief to be able to win that competition.”last_img read more

ASA Welcomes Launch of USColombia Free Trade Agreement

first_imgWith a proclamation from President Barack Obama yesterday, the United States entered into the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement. ASA congratulates the governments of both countries for their collaboration and cooperation in the interest of trade expansion.”The free trade agreement with Colombia holds a great deal of potential for America’s soybean farmers,” said ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, Neb. “The pact expands a valuable and growing export market for American soybeans, meal, oil and products that require soy inputs like dairy, meat and poultry. The agreement also helps us regain lost market share in Central and South America’s third largest economy.”The agreement ensures that more than half of all U.S. farm exports to Colombia—including soybeans and soybean meal and flour—will become duty-free, with virtually all of the remaining tariffs to be eliminated over the next 15 years. The agreement also provides duty free tariff rate quotas (TRQ) on soybean oil, as well as livestock and dairy exports that utilize soybean inputs. To commemorate the event, ASA staff will join Colombian Ambassador Gabriel Silva for a reception at the Colombian Embassy in Washington today.Soybeans and soybean products are the largest U.S. agricultural export commodity, totaling nearly 1.5 billion bushels in 2011, with a value of more than $22 billion. Last year, the U.S. exported more than $182 million in soybeans and soybean products to Colombia, as part of $832 million in agricultural products. The International Trade Commission (ITC) estimates that the agreement will expand overall exports to Colombia by more than $1.1 billion and support thousands of additional American jobs.ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through the voluntary membership in ASA by more than 21,000 farmers in 31 states where soybeans are grown.###For more information contact:Steve Wellman, ASA President, 402-269-7024, wellmanfarms@sbllcweb.comPatrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

Couple say stop by police overkill

first_imgWhen 23-year-old Ann Van Horn saw a Vancouver police officer preparing to pull over a friend’s black 1979 Ford Bronco one night last week, she thought it was for an equipment violation — the SUV, with large tires and a lifted frame, had no mud flaps.It was about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday. Van Horn was in her own car, a green Jeep Grand Cherokee, and her 6-month-old daughter, Isabel, was with her in a child seat. Van Horn was following her friend Jacob Conner home, not far from Marrion Elementary School, in case his 31-year-old SUV’s engine stopped running. “I noticed the cop pull out real fast as soon as he saw the Bronco,” she said.Unknown to Van Horn and Conner, it wasn’t about mud flaps.Officers in Vancouver and Hazel Dell were intently searching for a teenager who allegedly shot 19-year-old Daniel Thurston in the neck during a robbery the previous night, critically injuring him and paralyzing him from the waist down.The teen was believed to be armed with a large-caliber handgun. A witness had seen a black, older SUV like the one Conner was driving leave the scene of the 8:51 p.m. Tuesday shooting at the Parklane Apartments, 10205 N.E. Notchlog Drive in Hazel Dell.The officer who first spotted the Bronco on Wednesday night, and several more officers who were rushing to help pull it over, figured the young man driving it might be the one they were looking for — armed and willing to shoot people. Officials say the suspect had shot Thurston during a robbery involving marijuana.last_img read more

A few bugs in medical marijuana garden plot

first_imgThree weeks after state law began allowing gardens with up to 45 marijuana plants for medical use, Clark County leaders are still struggling with sticky issues associated with the new law.The Clark County commissioners scheduled a public hearing for 10 a.m. Tuesday. They were expected to either extend their 60-day ban on collective gardens for the county’s unincorporated areas or end the ban, officials said. Clark County cities such as Vancouver, Camas, Washougal and La Center already have six-month bans in place. Ridgefield, Woodland and Yacolt do not.Change in state lawCities rushed to declare temporary bans last month after the state Legislature approved collective gardens. Officials said they needed time to study where the gardens should be placed, how the crop would be distributed and other details, officials said. The state law, which took effect July 22, is at odds with federal law that bans all marijuana use.State law allows for up to 10 people to grow up to 45 plants in collective gardens. State law also gives cities and counties the authority to establish zoning regulations for the gardens but not to ban them outright.“It’s not an issue whether medical marijuana is legal or not,” Washougal Mayor Sean Guard said, pointing to Senate Bill 5073. “The question has to do with the collective farms and what areas they should be in.”Gov. Chris Gregoire axed portions of proposed legislation allowing dispensaries for medical marijuana. Her decision to allow collective gardens caught many local lawmakers off guard, they said.last_img read more

Off Beat They came to Vancouver where their stories came together

first_imgFor one man, the path started with a candy bar.One woman wanted to choose the man she would marry.For another, it started with her family’s epic journey 500 years ago.They came to Vancouver.Their stories came together on a recent Friday in a cluster of events, including two simultaneous community celebrations.As keynote speaker Elie Kassab welcomed 29 newly naturalized citizens, the Vancouver businessman recalled the moment in 1958 when he knew he wanted to go to the United States.As reporter Stephanie Rice wrote, his family went to see a fleet of U.S. Navy ships that had arrived in Beirut, Lebanon. A U.S. Marine handed the 7-year-old boy a candy bar. On the way home, Kassab looked back at the ships and admired a red, white and blue flag. At that moment, his dream to come to America was born, Kassab told the crowd at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.At the same time, another group gathered at the Remembrance Wall mural gallery. Veterans of overseas wars, or their family members, had a chance to inscribe their names on a mural panel.A woman wanted to have the name of her husband, who died in 2001, on the panel. They’d met in college, she said. He was a veteran of combat in the Pacific; she came to the U.S. from India, where her future would have included an arranged marriage.On that same Friday, Diana Golden suffered a heart attack; she died two days later. Her path here included the Greek island of Rhodes, where she grew up, and the Auschwitz concentration camp, where several family members died. In a 2006 story, Golden told The Columbian that she grew up speaking Spanish — the result of an earlier family transition.last_img read more

Vancouvers second marijuana shop to open Friday

Mill Plain Blvd. will hold its grand opening at 8 a.m. today. Hours will be from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. through the weekend and into next week, but could change after the opening rush settles down, said Brian Budz, one of the owners.Despite shortages around the state, New Vansterdam doesn’t expect to run out of stock anytime soon, he said.“Stock is good,” Budz said. “It’s still coming in due to the issues everyone around the state is having, but we should have just under 30 pounds at the opening. We are way above where we wanted to be to get through the weekend.”Prices will be about $20 a gram, and the store plans to sell 2-gram and 3.5-gram bags of buds through the weekend. So far, the store has 15 different marijuana strains from four growers: CannaMan Farms in Vancouver, Monkey Grass Farms in Wenatchee, Peninsula Cannabis in Port Angeles and Nine Point Growth Industries in Bremerton.Edible products and other items are not yet available because the state is still wrangling with how to handle dosages and labeling.Budz said he’s not sure what the opening day scene will look like, but if there are long lines, the store will have portable toilets and water available for customers.last_img read more

Defined benefit pension funding deficit remains at £460bn at September 2017

first_imgThe funding deficit for defined benefit (DB) pension schemes in the UK remained at £460 billion at the end of September 2017, according to research by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC).Its Skyval index, which is based on data relating to 5,800 DB pension funds and collected through the Skyval pensions platform used by trustees, sponsors and advisors, found that the funding deficit for UK DB pension schemes has been maintained at the same level between August 2017 and September 2017.At the end of September 2017, pension assets were £1,520 billion according to the current funding measure, which is used by pension fund trustees to determine organisations’ cash contributions. This is a £50 billion decrease from the £1,570 billion recorded in August 2017.The current funding measure liability target at the end of September 2017 was £1,980 billion, compared to £2,030 billion at the end of August 2017.Steven Dicker, chief actuary at PWC, said: “Long-term real interest rates, interest rates relative to inflation, as measured by government bond yields have increased over September, which has led to a £50 billion reduction to liabilities since August month end. However, there was no impact on the deficit due to falling asset values over the month.“The swing in the size of deficit from month to month is sensitive to small market movements, as demonstrated by the month to month volatility.”last_img read more
