Wellington Phoenix striker Roy Krishna voted PFA player of the month

first_img“Obviously, yes. But the main focus is not about me. I’ve just got to perform every week and whatever comes I’ll be happy. My main target for this season is to get the club to the playoffs and that’s what I’m focussing on,” Krishna said.Krishna is one of 17 Phoenix players off-contract at the end of the season and Stuff understands Newcastle Jets and Central Coast Mariners are keen to sign the Fijian international who has scored 12 goals in 19 games — already equalling his best-ever return.It was announced on Tuesday that Krishna had bagged the PFA player of the month award for the month of January and he said the secret to his success was simply enjoying his football again.”Mark [Rudan] has given me the freedom to believe in myself, which I was lacking last season, and it shows on the pitch. All of the boys are helping me and as age goes you get more experience and that helps me too, but you just have to work hard and get in the right spaces.”Krishna broke a four-game scoring drought when he netted in the Phoenix’s 1-1 draw with Melbourne Victory on Friday, volleying home from close-range.He remains one goal behind Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre in the golden boot race.”Every striker wants to score every week,” he said. “It was frustrating not to get goals but the main thing was I was getting in good positions. It was good to convert one but I should have got two, but it’s part of football and I just have to keep working hard on the training pitch.”I’m not worried about the stats, if I get [golden boot] it’d be awesome but for me to help the team even with a goal or without a goal, maybe an assist or something, as long as we’re getting three points I’m all good.”Krishna said it was disappointing to come away with just one point, after his foul on Leigh Broxham provided Keisuke Honda with a chance to level from the penalty spot.Earlier in the game he spurned a chance to double the lead, with Lawrence Thomas producing a vital save to deny him in a one-on-one opportunity.”It was obviously disappointing. We had a few chances we should have put in. But at the end of the day it was fair enough. Both teams were attacking and I think it was an open game. They’re a good side but we are disappointed not to get three points at home especially as the fans came out in big numbers and I want to thank them as well.”The Phoenix take on Sydney in Campbelltown on Saturday night.last_img read more

Bairstow leads England to rout of South Africa

first_imgJonny Bairstow struck a sublime unbeaten 60 to lead England to a dominant nine-wicket victory over South Africa in the first Twenty20 international in Southampton.South Africa chose to bat and laboured to 142 for three before Bairstow and Alex Hales shared a superb unbroken second-wicket partnership of 98 to guide the hosts to their target with 5.3 overs to spare.“I’m trying to progress all the time and I played a few shots I didn’t have a few months ago,” said man of the match Bairstow.“I’m feeling good, I was really pleased. The lads bowled outstandingly well, to take wickets up front is what we wanted and then our spinners tied them down.”David Willey bowled JJ Smuts with the first ball of the match and South Africa quickly subsided to 32 for three.Captain AB de Villiers (65 not out) and Farhaan Behardien (64 not out) shared an unbroken stand of 110 but they never broke free from the shackles imposed by a disciplined England attack and the total always looked below-par.England openers Jason Roy and Hales plundered 45 off the first four overs before Roy, playing a risky reverse sweep, was trapped lbw by Andile Phehlukwayo for 28.But Hales (47 not out) and Bairstow looked completely untroubled by a toothless South Africa attack, hitting four sixes and nine fours between them to cruise to their target.Both teams were playing their first matches since the Champions Trophy in which hosts England lost to Pakistan in the semi-finals and top-ranked South Africa failed to advance from the group stage.“It is difficult to sum up the performance. The result doesn’t look good for us. We lost our way at the start, had to rebuild and we were 20-30 runs short in the end, which probably cost us,” De Villiers said.The second game of the three-match series is in Taunton on Friday.last_img read more

European coaches ask Uefa to review away goals rule

first_imgEurope’s top club coaches have asked Uefa to review the use of the away goals rule in continental competitions because scoring away from home is not as difficult as it used to be.They also want the transfer window to end at the same time in all the region’s major leagues.Uefa’s deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti confirmed that the European soccer body would “open a discussion” on the use of the away goals rule which is used to determine the winners of knockout ties when the aggregate score is level.The annual meeting included Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Carlos Ancelotti (Napoli), Unai Emery (Arsenal), Paulo Fonseca (Shakhtar Donetsk), Julen Lopetegui (Real Madrid) Jose Mourinho (Manchester United), Thomas Tuchel (Paris St Germain) and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.“The coaches think that scoring goals away is not as difficult as it was in the past… so they think the rule should be reviewed and that’s what we will do,” Marchetti told reporters.“They consider the situation in football has changed and the weight of the away goals is not the same as many years ago when the rule was introduced.”The rule was first introduced in the former European Cup Winners’ Cup competition in 1965 as an alternative to tossing a coin or staging a replay on a neutral ground.At the time, playing away in Europe was a huge challenge which involved difficult travel and intimidating, unfamiliar conditions abroad, a far cry from today where it is considered routine.Marchetti said the coaches felt the rule was also counter-productive and that, as much as encouraging away teams to attack, it induced home teams to defend to avoid conceding a costly goal.“This is one of the points that needs to be looked at,” he said.On the transfer window, he said the coaches wanted more countries to follow the example of England and Italy and close them before the start of the season.The transfer windows in England and Italy were changed this year in response to complaints last year that they had overshadowed the action on the pitch and made it difficult for coaches to plan.However, in Spain, Germany and France, they continued until the end of August as before.“The coaches are of an opinion that there should be a unified window and the window should close before the competition starts,” said Marchetti. “The idea would be to try and bring them into line.”last_img read more

Red Star atmosphere will be fantastic, says Pochettino

first_imgTottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said he expects the home Red Star Belgrade fans to generate a fervent atmosphere when the two teams clash on Wednesday in a potentially explosive Champions League fixture.Red Star’s Rajko Mitic stadium is renowned for it noise and electric atmosphere on European nights, as Champions League holders Liverpool found out in a 2-0 group-stage defeat in the Serbian capital last season.The encounter could also prove pivotal for qualification with one point separating Spurs and Red Star in Group B.“I heard many things about this stadium and it’s going to be fantastic to be here tomorrow,” Tottenham’s Argentine boss Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday.“We respect Red Star a lot but at the same time we need to play in the best way and be ready to fight because it’s a new stadium to play in.”Spurs captain Harry Kane said he hoped there would be no repeat of the racist abuse England players suffered in Sofia during last month’s Euro 2020 qualifier.The match in the Bulgarian capital, which England went on to win 6-0, was twice stopped under a three-step UEFA protocol after England’s black players were abused.“Hopefully it doesn’t happen and we play a football match tomorrow,” he said. “It will be a tough football match and we focus on that. If it does happen there is a UEFA protocol in place like there was in Sofia.”Red Star coach Vladan Milojevic ruled out any possibility of the Serbian club’s fans causing trouble.“I hope Spurs fans turn up in numbers because they will be completely safe here,” he said.“We have quite a few players coming from different continents and backgrounds so racism has no place here. We will show our hospitality tomorrow.”Speaking about Red Star’s chances of avenging a 5-0 defeat by Spurs in the reverse fixture, Milojevic said:“This is not PlayStation, it’s real life. Taking the game to a team like Spurs is easier said than done, but we will do everything humanly possible to play our best football and get a result.”Spurs are second in the group on four points from three games, one ahead of Red Star and five behind leaders Bayern Munich who thrashed them 7-2 in North London last month. Bottom team Olympiakos have no points.After a rocky start to the season in the Premier League, Pochettino acknowledged beating Red Star would be vital for morale.“The most important thing is to be in the next stage of the Champions League, but a win would also be massive for our confidence,” he said.last_img read more

Mourinho unconcerned by Chelsea’s transfer ban being lifted

first_imgJose Mourinho is unconcerned by Chelsea’s transfer ban being lifted and believes his former club may struggle to strengthen their team even with a “multi-million budget”.Frank Lampard’s Blues are free to sign players in January after their two-window ban was halved after appealing against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).Spurs are currently nine points behind their top-four rivals in the battle for Champions League qualification ahead of Saturday’s home game against Burnley.Tottenham boss Mourinho, whose second spell at Stamford Bridge ended in 2015, expects the reduction of the FIFA sanction to have minimal impact.“I’m not worried with that. First of all, I’m not looking to the distance we have to Chelsea,” said Mourinho. “Between us and Chelsea there are still two or three teams, so you cannot look so high and so far in this moment.“The second situation is for me that it’s not easy to get better players than they have – they have very good players.“I don’t think even with a ban or even with a hypothetical multi-million budget to spend, I’m not very, very sure they can get much better players than they have.”Mourinho suffered his first defeat since succeeding Mauricio Pochettino when Spurs were beaten 2-1 at Manchester United on Wednesday evening.Out-of-favour midfielder Christian Eriksen, whose contract expires at the end of the season, was once again used as a substitute in that game.The Denmark international has yet to start a match under his new manager and has been linked with a free transfer move to Old Trafford.Mourinho has spoken to the 27-year-old about his future and says the club is more important than individuals.“My feelings are until I have anything official, rather than hypothetical things and speculation, there is not much to comment,” said Mourinho.“Of course I have had a conversation with him, of course I have to defend the best interests of my club.“My club is more important than my players and my players are more important than me. But the club is more important than any one of us, so that’s the way I think.“I’m not going to answer you. I think that’s him that has to tell you.“Is he a fantastic player? He is. But the situation is that I have to think first in the club interests.“What we spoke, I am perfectly fine with it. I have absolutely nothing to hide.”During the midweek defeat to United, Spurs conceded twice for the fourth consecutive match of Mourinho’s short tenure.The Portuguese, who will rest his players in next week’s Champions League dead rubber against Bayern Munich, admits his porous backline needs tightening but says it will take time and is eager to avoid reducing the team’s goal threat.“We have to sort out our defence without losing what we have in attack,” he said. “We concede two goals in each one of my four matches but we score in all of them, we could score even more than we did.“But we are conceding too much and we are conceding cheap goals and we have to try to stop it. The best way to do it is to work, (but) we have no time to work (at the moment).“Let’s wait a little bit until next week where we have the Bayern match. That will be a match when I am going to rest some players, so I will work with the players who are not going to be involved.”Goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, defender Ben Davies and winger Erik Lamela remain sidelined for the visit of the Clarets.last_img read more

Fears of a dire precedent as Brazil seeks results-based REDD+ payment

first_imgCritics worry that Brazil’s reference level for deforestation and the lack of guarantee that the carbon will stay locked up could set an unsustainable precedent for future payments.The forest reference levels currently used in the proposal are high enough that deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon could double and Brazil would still qualify for “results-based” payments. Almost a decade after it was founded, the Green Climate Fund is ready to start paying tropical countries for emission reductions from REDD+. A proposal from Brazil has been submitted to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) board meeting for payments for 2014 and 2015. But advocates and forest policy experts say the way the emissions-reductions savings are being calculated, and the likely possibility that the reductions will not be permanent, might end up setting a poor precedent for future payouts from REDD+.Scientists agree that reducing deforestation and increasing forest areas play a critical role in keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). Forests could provide almost a quarter of the cost-effective climate mitigation needed by 2030. However they receive less than 3 percent of climate mitigation funding.“In terms of directing climate finance to forests, we are off by at least an order of magnitude,” Frances Seymour, a renowned forest expert and distinguished senior fellow at the World Resources Institute (WRI), said about REDD+ projects.REDD+ was initially proposed as climate change mitigation mechanism that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by paying developing countries to keep their forests intact rather than cutting them down. Now the GCF, the multilateral climate fund created under the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), is considering proposals for a pilot program for REDD+ results-based payments at its 22nd  board meeting in South Korea this week.Unlike past REDD+ projects that received funds from the GCF to implement programs, the pilot program, announced in 2017, will pay countries ex-post for results achieved between December 2013 and 2018. The $500 million pilot program will pay $5 per ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) and limit each country to 30 percent of the total amount. Proposals are evaluated by a technical board and will be considered on a rolling basis at the GCF board meetings, which are attended by board members and observer NGOs.Choosing the right reference levelSome forest experts have raised concerns about the feasibility based on what they consider clear issues with one of the proposals. In its proposal submitted to the GCF, Brazil says it reduced its emissions in 2014 and 2015 by 1.25 billion tons of CO2e in comparison to the deforestation average from 1996 to 2010. It is requesting payment for 2 percent of that, around 25 million tons of CO2e. The Independent Technical Advisory Panel’s assessment of the proposal recommends paying for 19 million tons. If approved at the GCF rate of $5 per ton of emissions reductions, Brazil would get just over $96 million.But advocates say the 1996-2010 average, the so-called Forest Reference Emission Level (FREL B), represents years in which deforestation in the Amazon was exceptionally high, and doesn’t provide a meaningful comparison.“Under the current reference level, deforestation in Brazil could double and they would still be able to get payments,” said Jutta Kill, a researcher at the World Rainforest Movement and biologist who applies her work to support social movements. “If a different reference level had been chosen that reflects the reality of growing emissions, then Brazil would have had a significantly lower level or no claims at all because emissions are going up.”Not everyone agrees with this assessment.“The FREL of Brazil, recognized by the UNFCCC, is appropriate and scientifically rigorous,” says Daniel Nepstad, president and executive director of the Earth Innovation Institute, who has researched deforestation in Brazil for 30 years. “The risk of claiming otherwise is that it will punish Brazil for its success in lowering deforestation so rapidly through 2012, which created the huge difference between FREL and deforestation today. But this is a measure of Brazil’s success.”Pictorial representation of Brazil’s FREL as submitted to the UNFCCC. FREL (A) refers to the mean annual CO2emissions from the period 1996 to 2005 (1,106,027,616.63tCO2); FR(B) refers to the mean annual CO2emissions from the period 1996 to 2010 (907,959,466.33tCO2). Credit: UNFCCCCurrently, countries can choose their own reference level as long as the technical assessment of the FREL has been finalized by the UNFCCC. Brazil’s case is important in that the FREL for the Amazon biome was the first reference level submitted to the UNFCCC for use in results-based payments.In Brazil, deforestation levels were extremely high from 1996 to 2005, and then dropped substantially. Since 2012, deforestation rates have been creeping up again. Between 2014 and 2015, the years for which Brazil is claiming payments, deforestation in the Amazon increased from 5,012 to 6,207 square kilometers (1,935 to 2,397 square miles), an almost 25 percent increase.“In 2014 and 2015 Brazil had the two worst increases in deforestation since it started to rise again,” said Maria Fernanda Gabara, an anthropologist who works with indigenous communities in Brazil. “It’s really contradictory that they are getting payments for these years.”Keeping the carbon locked upThe Green Climate Fund was set up in 2010 as part of the financial mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It has 24 board members, representing an equal number of representatives from developed and developing countries. It seeks to “promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development.” But some experts are concerned that this mission may be at odds with Brazil’s recent shift in government, and question if the emissions reductions that the GCF is paying for will remain locked up forests.“From a climate perspective, REDD+ can only have a benefit if the carbon is kept sequestered,” Kill said. “There is nothing in the proposal that guarantees to keep the carbon in the trees.”Jair Bolsonaro, the recently elected right-wing president of Brazil, ran on a platform of reducing environmental and legal safeguards for forests. He has signaled his intention to develop the Amazon, which experts say has already led to an increase in deforestation.“The annual rate of deforestation is increasing. Whether [it] stays that way we can’t say for sure,” said Peter May, a professor at the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, in an interview. “But last year there was a considerable upswing in deforestation after Bolsonaro got elected.”According to Brazil’s official monitoring system, Deforestation in the Amazon has increased from 4,571 square kilometers (1,765 square miles) in 2012 to almost 8,000 square kilometers (3,090 square miles) in 2018 — the highest in almost a decade.Brazilian Amazon deforestation 2002-2018. Image via Mongabay.One of Bolsonaro’s first moves after taking office in January this year was to move control of indigenous lands and the forest service under jurisdiction of the Ministry of Agriculture, which has been touted as a win for agribusiness.This means there’s a chance that the emissions reductions the GCF would pay for might not be permanent.“Brazil was able to reduce deforestation in the past, but it hasn’t stayed down. Now even though deforestation is on the rise, they will be getting paid,” Thomas Fatheuer, a social scientist with Heinrich Böll Stiftung, a German political foundation focused on green policy, told Mongabay. “It’s like rewarding someone for having quit smoking for a few months, even though they are still smoking today.”Political pressureDespite the problems with the proposal and bad precedent it could set, some believe that political pressures could push the GCF to accept Brazil’s proposal anyway. Bolsonaro has threatened to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement and recently withdrew his country’s invitation to host COP25, this year’s UNFCCC climate summit, which will instead be held in Chile. Some believe that failure to follow through on environmental pledges like REDD+ payments could provide further fuel to the Bolsonaro administration’s anti-environmental stance.“If the Green Climate Fund and the UNFCCC refuse the proposal from Brazil, that might give Brazil more of excuse to leave the climate agreements,” Federal Rural University’s May said. “So that might act as a push for them to say yes.”Given the pro-development stance of the current government, not being able to fulfill expectations around environmental agreements and mechanisms like REDD+ may become further weaponized by the government.“If we kill [the] GCF contract today,” Nepstad said, “the chance that the new admin will roll back forest conservation policy will grow.”To add to the external political pressure, the GCF board might be feeling the pressure from inside as well. The board came under fire at its meeting last July for failing to approve any of the projects under consideration and disburse funds from the more than $10 billion in pledges it has attracted from countries. The meeting was described as “very difficult” by the chair of the board, Lennart Båge.“They are in a sort of double bind,” Fatheuer said. “REDD+ unfortunately has the perverse implication that by not paying out emissions reductions now, it gives countries like Brazil the justification to say ‘conservation doesn’t work, let’s develop instead.’”Banner image: The tinctorius poison dart frog inhabits the greater Amazon rainforest in Suriname and Northern Brazil.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more
