Arsenal Wenger insists Arsenal are not underdogs in north London derby Seth Vertelney Last updated 1 year ago 02:30 11/17/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(3) Getty Arsenal Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur Tottenham Hotspur Premier League The Gunners manager says his club will have no fear when they face their arch-rivals in Saturday’s early kick-off Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that his side will not be the underdogs whey they take on Tottenham in the north London derby on Saturday. The Gunners have gone six league matches without defeating their neighbours and with Spurs finishing ahead of Arsenal for the first time in 20 years last season, the pendulum finally appears to be swinging towards Tottenham in the rivalry.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player This season Tottenham are in third place in the Premier League, three places and four points ahead of the Gunners. Despite Tottenham’s resurgence under Mauricio Pochettino, Wenger insists his side won’t be the underdogs at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. “No, not all,” Wenger said when asked at a press conference if Spurs should be considered favourites. “Tottenham are a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that’s what we want to show.”Four Tottenham players are set to return from injury, including star striker Harry Kane, but Wenger insists his side should not be afraid of anyone. “We have no fear. We are just focused on nullifying their strong points and expressing our strong points,” Wenger said. “It is a good opportunity to show we are the strongest. We’ll see at the end of the season. The real motivation is to do as well as our potential. The target is not to compare to Tottenham.”Wenger expressed his disappointment at last season’s results, though he insisted that a fifth-place finish was harsh on his side. “It was a big disappointment to finish outside the top four. It was the first time in the history of the Premier League that a team with 75 points finished outside of top four,” he said. “I still feel it was very harsh on us. People forget we won the FA Cup in a very stylish way against City in the semi and Chelsea in the final.“The overall achievement was quite positive, even if there was disappointment not to finish in the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.” read more

Michelle Berg / Saskatoon StarPhoenix The words of treaty commissioner Mary Culbertson’s uncle Elder Danny Musqua, written on the wall of the Treaty Commissioner’s Office in Saskatoon. Province, community groups rally behind ‘common vision’ for reconciliation “I think what we’re seeing in the results is that there was a recognition of some pretty significant issues in our province, in terms of racism, in terms of inequities in our systems and in terms of poor relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous folks in Saskatchewan,” said Rhett Sangster, the OTC’s director of reconciliation and community partnerships.There was a sense of optimism in the findings, Sangster said, with 91 per cent of respondents agreeing reconciliation is important and 87 saying they believe it’s possible.However, one of the key findings was the need for strategies to combat a perceived low level of motivation to work toward reconciliation and the presence of racism in the province.Fifty per cent of respondents said the average resident has low levels of motivation toward reconciliation, while 90 per cent acknowledged the presence of racism in Saskatchewan.Sixty per cent said they agree that the current relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents is improving, despite about half seeing the current relationship as negative.From an institutional perspective, more than half of respondents disagreed with the statement that Saskatchewan’s social, political and economic systems benefit and represent all residents.The survey found that more focus needs to be put on educating Saskatchewan residents about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and its calls to action; only 11 per cent said they were very familiar with them. Thirty-three per cent said they were familiar with residential schools and 24 per cent with the concept of reconciliation.“It would be interesting to talk with some of the education bodies in the province to think about why are there differences there,” Sangster said. “Part of what we hope is that the survey is a useful tool to have some of those discussions.”The OTC plans to use the survey results to provide the foundation for a loose blueprint for future reconciliation activities, including its four-prong Vision for Truth and Reconciliation through Treaty Implementation announced earlier this month, Sangster email@example.comRelated A survey of more than 3,000 residents by the Office of the Treaty Commissioner (OTC) found that while people in Saskatchewan are optimistic about reconciliation, roadblocks remain.Between December 2018 and January 2019, 3,018 Saskatchewan residents participated in the telephone survey, which measured public opinion about reconciliation. Twenty-two per cent of respondents were from Saskatoon or Regina (12 and nine per cent, respectively).The questions were centred on the four target areas of a shared understanding of history, authentic relationships, acknowledging vibrant cultures and world views and removing racism from institutions. read more
In a statement read out to the press by Ambassador Oh Joon of the Republic of Korea, which holds the Council’s presidency for May, the 15-members called on all parties to respect “the democratic will of the people.”They “call upon the security services to respect the constitutional order” including the election results, and reiterated “the demands to the security services to submit themselves fully to civilians control.”The second round of presidential elections was held yesterday after citizens first went to the polls on 13 April. Postponed several times, the elections are the first to take place since the 2012 military coup which ousted interim President Raimundo Pereira. They are widely seen as essential to restoring constitutional order, economic growth and development.“Once again, Bissau-Guineans have demonstrated their commitment to peace and democracy by turning out in large numbers to cast their ballots,” his spokesperson said in a statement from Mr. Ban who is currently on an official visit to China.The successful conclusion of the elections “will go a long way to restoring constitutional order in Guinea-Bissau” and “usher in and consolidate the stability that has eluded the country for too long,” he said. At UN Headquarters in New York, José Ramos-Horta, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS) briefed the Council alongside the chair of the Peacebuilding Commission’s (PBC) Guinea-Bissau configuration, Antonio de Aguiar Patriota.The 15-member Council will vote by the end of the month whether to renew the UNIOGBIS mandate, and if so, whether to change its mandate. “The end of the transition is the beginning of a new phase which will require our continued engagement and full commitment to assist the people of Guinea-Bissau,” said Mr. Ramos-Horta via video teleconference from Guinea-Bissau. In the immediate post-election period, the newly elected Government would need emergency budgetary support to help it cover outstanding salaries in order to begin the necessary work of rebuilding the State in an atmosphere of calm and stability.He went on to say that UN agencies, funds and programmes need the necessary support to help them provide technical assistance in effecting reform of the public administration, providing social services and revitalizing the economy. International financial institutions should make every effort to support the socioeconomic revitalization of Guinea-Bissau, without which the new Government and the restored constitutional order would run the risk of collapsing very soon, he emphasized.However, he went on to stress: “It is clear that the new, elected State institutions are inheriting a bleak political, social economic and security situation.” Major challenges must be tackled, with acrimonious civil-military relations and issues of civilian oversight yet to be addressed. The new Government, Mr. Ramos-Horta continued, will need to mobilize all citizens to engage in a serious, inclusive and constructive dialogue, he said, adding that a consensual national programme of political stabilization and economic development must be the first step, alongside the fast-tracking of critical security sector reforms.In helping the National Commission for Planning and Strategic Coordination prepare for the incoming Government, he said, UNIOGBIS has, among other activities, held workshops to identify proposals awaiting the new Government’s approval, which would address the need to update the National Strategy Document on security-sector reform and the rule of law.“I believe we find ourselves today better positioned, from a technical point of view, to re-engage with Guinea-Bissau,” said Mr. Patriota, adding that the UN is also better positioned to devise a comprehensive and more effective strategy in support of legitimate authorities. He added that the UN will work with the incoming Government on a new set of national peacebuilding priorities. Resources for such work would come in part from a donors conference which Mr. Ban has said would be held “as early as possible” to reign the potential of the country and “move past the cycle of poverty and instability.” read more
Maubara Lake in Timor-Leste Dead trees form an eerie tableau on the shores of Maubara Lake in Timor-Leste. UN Photo/Martine Perret Droughts linked to El Niño and civil conflicts have pushed the number of countries currently in need of external food assistance up to 37 from 34 in March, a new report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has found. The new edition of the Crop Prospects and Food Situation report adds Papua New Guinea, Haiti and Nigeria to the list of countries requiring outside help to feed their own populations or communities of refugees they are hosting. In Haiti, output of cereals and starchy roots in 2015 dropped to its lowest level in 12 years, largely due to El Niño, which has also exacerbated the worst drought in decades in Central America’s dry corridor. About 3.6 million people, more than one third of the population, are food insecure, almost half of them severely, while at least 200,000 are in an extreme food emergency situation, FAO said. In Southern Africa, El Niño impacts have significantly worsened food security and the 2016 cereal harvest currently under way is expected to drop by 26 per cent from the already reduced level of the previous year, triggering a substantial rise in maize prices and import requirements in the coming marketing year, the report found. Prolonged drought in Papua New Guinea this past year has been followed by heavy rains and localized flooding in early 2016, affecting about 2.7 million people. Cereal output in the country’s Highland region is expected to suffer a severe shortfall, while the harvest in neighbouring Timor-Leste is expected to decrease for the second year in a row, according to the report. While El Niño is now over, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) forecasts a 65 per cent chance it will be followed by a La Niña episode, which typically triggers the opposite precipitation patterns – potentially a boon for parched land but also posing the risk of flooding, the report said. Conflicts are taking an increasing toll The report also found that civil conflicts and their displacement of populations have worsened the food security situation in 12 of the 28 countries on the watch list. ‹ › About 13.5 million people in Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance, with caseloads increasing. This year’s harvest is forecast to decrease by about 9 per cent, due to irregular rainfall in parts of the country, combined with a lack of agricultural inputs and damage to farm infrastructure, according to FAO. The new report adds Nigeria to the list of countries needing external help, due to large-scale internal displacement of people stemming from ongoing conflict in northern districts, which also led to an increased number of refugees and food insecurity in neighbouring Cameroun, Chad and Niger. About 3.4 million people in Nigeria, mostly in the states of Borno and Yobe, are estimated to be in need of food assistance, FAO said. In Yemen, where more than 14.4 million people are estimated to be food insecure – half of them severely so – there is a high risk that desert locust swarms will increase in hard-to-reach interior regions from early June onward, according to the report. Global cereal output on the rise FAO raised its forecast for global cereal production in 2016 to 2,539 million tons, up 17.3 million tons from its previous May projection and up 0.6 per cent from last year’s harvest. Aggregate cereal production in Low-Income Food-Deficit Countries is also forecast to increase to 420 million tons in 2016, led by a recovery in rice and wheat production in India after last year’s reduction due to El Niño-related drought. That would be a 2.5 per cent increase from last year’s sharply reduced level, the report shows. Despite the improved world production prospects in 2016, output would still fall slightly short of the projected demand in 2016/17, meaning global stocks would need to be drawn down from their near-record level, according to the report. The 37 countries currently in need of external food assistance are Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Guinea, Haiti, Iraq, Kenya , Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Uganda, Yemen and Zimbabwe.

Florence Copper has received an Underground Injection Control (UIC) draft permit from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The UIC draft permit regulates the construction and operation of Florence Copper’s injection wells at the site and is the final regulatory milestone required of Florence Copper to operate its Production Test Facility (PTF) in Florence, Arizona using in-situ copper recovery (ISCR) technology.“I would like to acknowledge the professionalism and dedication of the staff at the EPA, who reviewed our permit application carefully and extensively,” said Dan Johnson, Vice President and General Manager Florence Copper. “We are excited to have achieved this critical milestone and look forward to operating our in-situ recovery technology PTF.”The Phase 1 PTF is a pilot-scale demonstration of commercial ISCR operations. It will incorporate the drilling of 24 wells, the injection and recovery of ISCR solution, the manufacture of 99.999% pure copper cathode and the observation and monitoring of groundwater quality and other environmental conditions. Its main goals are:To optimize the process used by previous property owner BHP Copper between 1997 and 1998 to recover valuable copper minerals while maintaining hydraulic control of injected solutionsTo further enhance the potential for economic recovery of copperTo demonstrate and enhance best water management practices and new treatment technologies for commercial-scale operationsTo demonstrate the safety and reliability of the ISCR process and evaluate design improvements to ensure full compliance with permit conditions enforced by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) and the EPA.The well field will include four injection wells, nine recovery wells, four geochemical sampling wells and seven observation wells. Every injection well will be surrounded by four recovery wells. Wells will be used for the injection and recovery of ISCR solution. This solution is 99.7% water and 1/3 of 1% sulphuric acid by volume, and similar in pH to household vinegar.ISCR solution will be injected into a copper-bearing zone located approximately 135 to 365 m below surface. Injection and recovery wells will be encased in concrete protective secondary outer casing to ensure that all ISCR solution is injected and recovered in the copper-bearing zone.Processing facilities and equipment to be built and installed as part of the Phase 1 PTF include tanks for processing and storing ISCR solutions, water treatment tanks and equipment and storage and off-loading facilities for process chemicals.All tanks used for storing and processing ISCR solutions will be equipped with secondary and tertiary containment to prevent releases into the environment.A highly engineered SX/EW plant will be constructed on-site for the manufacture of 99.999% pure copper cathode. www.florencecopper.com read more

A windswept headland off the Atlantic coast of Cornwall, Tintagel is a land shrouded in myth. Associated with the legend of King Arthur since the 12th century, the ruined castle which clings to the dangerous-looking crag entices visitors across a dramatic footbridge to drink in a landscape that wouldn’t seem out of place in Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. Tintagel Castle was built in the early 13th century by Richard, 1st Earl of Cornwall — the younger brother of King Henry III of England and one of the wealthiest men in Europe. Lacking in any strategic value and constructed in a style that was purposefully out of date, Richard was deliberately bringing a lost legend to life.Tintagel castle and surroundings. Photo byIDS photos CC BY-SA 2.0The English cleric and chronicler Geoffrey of Monmouth conjured up the Arthurian connection to Tintagel in his 1136 epic Historia regum Britanniae, or The History of the Kings of Britain. He claimed that his book, which connected England’s historical monarchs to mythical monarchs like King Arthur, was a Latin translation of an older text but much of it was Monmouth’s own elaborate fantasy.Ruins of the Norman castle at Tintagel, 2005. Photo by Wigulf~commonswiki CC BY 2.5Even within his lifetime scholars were crying “fake history.” Sometime around 1190, the historian William of Newburgh wrote that “it is quite clear that everything this man wrote about Arthur and his successors […] was made up, partly by himself and partly by others”More recent studies have shown that Historia regum Britanniae can be traced to a number of earlier sources cherry-picked by Monmouth, from semi-mythical Welsh histories — which like Cornwall was a hold-out for the Celtic languages and legends that covered Britain prior to the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons — to local folklore and oral histories.King ArthurThere’s no doubting geography played a part too. At the time of Monmouth’s writing, Cornwall was far from the center of English power. Although its local lords had been brutally suppressed following the Norman Conquest and their lands given over to the new Norman aristocracy, the Cornish still spoke their own language — a Celtic tongue closely related to Welsh and Breton — and maintained their own traditions.Furthermore, the landscape was dotted with Iron Age hill forts, standing stones, and other reminders of an ancient culture, that stirred the imaginations of Anglo-Norman travelers.Rugged Tintagel with castle remains, Cornwall, landscape at sunset.Monmouth establishes the fortress of Tintagel as the site of Arthur’s conception, where his father Uther Pendragon uses a magic potion to assume the form of Gorlois of Cornwall in order to infiltrate his castle and sleep with Gorlois’s wife, Igraine.Later writers upgraded it to the site of Arthur’s birth, as well as the seat of King Mark of Cornwall in the epic romance Tristan and Iseult — a sort of Celtic Romeo and Juliet that like the story of King Arthur, emerged in the 12th century and quickly captivated Medieval audiences.Monmouth described the fictional fortress Gorlois of Cornwall in detail, writing that, “The castle is built high above the sea, which surrounds it on all sides, and there is no way in except that offered by a narrow isthmus of rock. Three armed soldiers could hold it against you, even if you stood there with the whole kingdom of Britain at your side.”The ruins of the upper mainland courtyards of Tintagel Castle, Cornwall. Photo by Kerry Garratt CC BY-SA 2.0The castle that now stands in romantic ruin at Tintagel may have been built as a reflection of Monmouth’s fantasy, but in this case Monmouth’s fantasy was the echo of older history.Historians dislike the phrase “Dark Ages” yet it is a commonly accepted term. It reflects a time when the history of Western Europe between the collapse of Roman rule (which ended around 410 AD in England) and the later Medieval era was little understood (in England this was thought to end in 1066 with the Norman Conquest).Tintagel, King Arthur’s Castle from valley.In this outdated view of early Medieval history, following the retreat of Roman civilization the continent regressed into a state of barbarism and ignorance where nothing changed or developed. Put simply, because culture wasn’t written down nobody thought it existed.It is in the Dark Ages that the mythical King Arthur was said to have reigned, maintaining order over an island nation of civilized “Romanised” Britons and fighting off cruel and warlike Anglo-Saxon invaders.Panoramic view from Tintagel Castle, looking north-east; the prominent building is a hotel, built in 1899, now called the Camelot Castle Hotel; the headland below is Barras Head. Photo by Michal Stehlík CC BY-SA 2.0Through archaeology and careful study of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and other early Medieval sources we now know much more about these murky centuries than our predecessors did — and what it tells us is that there was an important fortress at the site of Arthur’s legendary birthplace.Over the last few decades, archaeologists have increasingly found signs of a wealthy — most likely royal — settlement at Tintagel. The island was covered in simple houses that could shelter over 300 people, and the land-bridge was made narrower and more dangerous by the digging of defensive earthworks. There were no need for high walls when the unpredictable ocean and the jagged rocks can do the job for you.Tintagel Castle – from the Sketchbook of English Landscape and Coastal Scenery by American landscape artist William Trost Richards. Photo Courtesy the Online Collection of Brooklyn MuseumTintagel may have been one of the strongholds of the kings of Dumnonia, a Celtic kingdom which largely resisted the Romans and held out against the Anglo-Saxons in part until the 9th or 10th centuries. At the height of its power and prestige, Dumnonia covered a 150-mile stretch of southwestern England from Cornwall to the modern counties of Dorset and West Somerset.The Dumnonii kings didn’t have a fixed home, but moved around their domain and Tintagel may have been one of their compounds — a secure location to wait out war or other dangers.Whoever lived there was certainly immensely wealthy. Pottery found by digs on the headland suggests that Tintagel was at the end of a trade network that followed the French and Spanish coast down to North Africa and along the Mediterranean Sea to Greece, Turkey and the Near East — then parts of the Byzantine Empire.Tintagel, United Kingdom – August 12, 2016: View of Tintagel Island and legendary Tintagel castle ruins at sunset.The pottery remnants recovered at Tintagel so far are greater than the total finds of Eastern Mediterranean trade goods in the rest of Britain and Ireland combined — and so far only 5 percent of the site has been properly studied by archaeologists.By the 13th century, the “new” castle of Tintagel was already crumbling, its location making it altogether too vulnerable to the elements, and eventually the gatehouse collapsed into the rolling waves.Excavation in August 2017The Earls of Cornwall who followed Richard didn’t share his enthusiasm for the folly and it was left in the hands of a skeleton staff before being abandoned sometime in the 15th century — but the legend of King Arthur ensures that it’ll never be forgotten.Read another story from us: The Ancient Story of Merlin the Wizard Becomes Richer After Exciting New DiscoveryWhile there’s no historical evidence for King Arthur, let alone evidence that actually connects him to Tintagel, archaeology reminds us that this incredible island still has a great many secrets left to tell of lost Dark Age kingdoms, warrior kings, and incredible riches. read more
