Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he does not have a bad relationship with Barcelonaforward Lionel Messi.Ronaldo and Messi have dominated world football in recent years and are widely regarded as the two best current players in modern football, having shared the Ballon d’Or and Fifa Ballon d’Or between them during the last six years.Much has been said and written about the alleged difficult relationship between the two, but Ronaldo has stressed he has a perfectly good professional relationship with the Argentine.”It’s not at all true that we have a bad relationship. We are colleagues and have a professional relationship,” the Portugal star was quoted as saying by Marca.”We don’t have a relationship outside of football like I have with some other players. He tries to do his best for his club and national team and I do the same. There is a certain rivalry where we are each doing our utmost for our teams.”This rivalry is part of my life. It is only normal that people compare us. The same happens in Formula 1 with Ferrari and Mercedes. I’m used to it. This has been the case not only since I joined Madrid, but already when I was still at Manchester United. “I hope that we can both laugh about all this. Football is a game, it’s something fun and something we both like. We must face this rivalry in a positive way because it is a good thing. Football is something beautiful that all the fans enjoy.”Ronaldo has started the 2014-15 campaign in fine fashion, scoring three goals in four official appearances.
The applicant, Denholtz Associates, will be the third firm in the last 15 years to attempt a project at 16 and 22 West Front St. The conceptual drawings included the reclamation of a riverfront public parking lot behind Riverview Medical Center which would be the future site of an expansive event lawn and vendor village that would change with the seasons, including concert space in the warm-weather months and an outdoor ice rink in the winter. Denholtz said the thought of future Southbank residents strolling down the hill and into a center of activity is a particularly exciting aspectof the project. Denholtz said he expects the project to begin in fall2019, with a completion datestill to be determined. RED BANK – Days before his controversial bay-front project was approved in nearby Atlantic Highlands, the borough zoning board green-lighted local developer Steven Denholtz’s proposal for another set of townhomes that would overlook Marine Park and the Navesink River. “Much like the town itself,over the years there’s beena lot of difficulty reconcilinga vision at this site. But wehave a clear vision of whatthis project will be, just likeRed Bank has a clear visionfor its future,” Denholtz said. Named Southbank at Navesink, Denholtz has proposed a 10-unit development. The firm’s site plan includes five one-story units below five two-story dwellings with 26 parking spaces located beneath the construction for tenant use and eight additional stalls surrounding the construction. The Southbank project isn’t the only major development effort in the area. In March the borough released concept plans for the redevelopment of Marine Park. This article was first published in the May 2 – 8, 2019 printed edition of The Two River Times. That is, of course, if theproject comes to fruition. However, Denholtz said his firm plans to construct a sidewalk at the bottom of the hill on Union Street, as well as a stairwell near the eastern edge of the parcel for tenants to use. In addition to this project, Denholtz is leading another project named The Rail on a site adjacent to the Red Bank Train Station, which Red Bank RiverCenter executive director James Scavone told The Two River Times in October fits with the town’s vision of creating a transit village in the theatre district. The Bridge Avenue project plans were expanded to include 57 residential apartments in a mixed-use building with a 568-square-foot cafe and 6,275 square feet of retail space when Denholtz acquired two additional Oakland Street parcels, the former sites of Racioppi’s and San Remo restaurants. “It’s all happening in Red Bank right now. This is a fantastic town with so much to offer and we’re thrilled to be part of its bright future.” Denholtz said he understands the challenges of building in such a space, but believes his firm has a project that will add to the growth and character of Red Bank. The site plan application does not include sidewalks on either side of the building. If these plans remain as presented, it means the shortest route for residents who wish to enjoy Marine Park will be a slender two-way corridor known as Boat Club Court, which connects Union Street to the heavily trafficked West Front Street. The project expansion was approved by the planning board Oct. 15. The adjoining lots, which combine to measure just over a half-acre of property, are situated atop a hill above the historic Monmouth Boat Club on Union Street.

VICTORIA, B.C. — Joined by Attorney General David Eby and Environment and Climate Change Minister George Heyman at a press conference Thursday morning, B.C. Premier John Horgan announced the details of the government’s reference question to the B.C. Court of Appeal about whether it has the right to limit the amount of oil and diluted bitumen being imported to the province.The reference question concerns provincial autonomy, particularly the rights of B.C. to regulate the environmental and economic impacts of heavy oils, like diluted bitumen, transported through the province. It was filed today in the B.C. Court of Appeal. For its reference, the B.C. government is asking the court to review proposed amendments to the Environmental Management Act that would give the Province authority to regulate impacts of heavy oils, like diluted bitumen, which, when released into the environment, would endanger human health, the environment and communities.“We have asked the courts to confirm B.C.’s powers within our jurisdiction to defend B.C.’s interests, so that there is clarity for today and for the generations to come,” said Horgan. “Our government will continue to stand up for the right to protect B.C.’s environment, economy and coast.”In January, the provincial government proposed a second phase of regulations to improve preparedness, response and recovery from potential spills. The regulations would apply to pipelines transporting any quantity of liquid petroleum products, as well as rail or truck operations transporting more than 10,000 litres of liquid petroleum products. The government said the proposed regulations would ensure geographically appropriate response plans, improve response times, ensure compensation for loss of public use of land and maximize the application of regulations to marine transport. “We have been clear from the outset that the appropriate way to resolve disagreements over jurisdiction is through the courts, not through threats or unlawful measures to target citizens of another province,” said Eby. “This reference question seeks to confirm the scope and extent of provincial powers to regulate environmental and economic risks related to heavy oils like diluted bitumen.”This will be the third reference question that B.C. has sent to court. The first was regarding the constitutionality of polygamy, and the second was related to third-party advertising in elections. The B.C. Court of Appeal is the highest court to which the Province can send a reference question.“Our government is working to protect our economy, environment and communities by making sure we have effective spills prevention, response and recovery in place,” said Heyman. “A single spill of diluted bitumen would put at risk tens of thousands of jobs across B.C. We have a responsibility to ensure that every measure to reduce risks is in place, and that those responsible for spills are held accountable for fixing any environmental damage they cause.”

I watched with great anticipation, but unfortunately, it was not this time.“I can not say why [I have not been called], there are 24 names and it’s difficult for the coach to choose, I’ll keep working to be on the next list.“I feel more prepared, I already know the rhythm and style of the Premier League, which helps me on the way to the achievements. I want to be the top scorer of the league, take Everton back to the Champions League and therefore reach the Brazilian national team.”Richarlison is suspended for the Blues next three games after being sent off over the weekend.
