TURKEY: On July 10 Spanish rolling stock manufacturer CAF signed a €123m contract to supply 22 three-car EMUs which will enter service on suburban routes in Izmir from early 2010. The order was placed by IZBAN, a joint venture of state railway TCDD and Izmir Metropolitan Municipality. The 25 kV units will have stainless steel body shells and a maximum capacity of 740 passengers. Onboard facilities will include passenger information systems, video entertainment and CCTV. The suburban train order is the CAF’s third project in Turkey in recent years, bringing its total orders in the country to more than €400m. In 2005 the Spanish firm won an order to supply of 10 inter-city trains for the Ankara – Istanbul line, which was followed with an order for a further two trainsets at the end of 2007. In mid-2007 the city of Antalya awarded a joint venture of CAF and Turkish firm ALARCO a €110m contract to build 11·1 km light rail line and supply 14 trams.
EUROPE: The Technical University of Madrid’s Railway Technology Research Centre (Citef) will host the first World Congress on Railway Training on April 6-8.Entitled ‘From Strategy to Performance’, the congress has been organised at the behest of UIC with the support of its network of regional rail training centres. The event is intended to highlight nine key issues facing the railway industry: current challenges in railway training; training as an investment; trainers’ experience and skills; knowledge management; ‘skills fade’ and competence retention; use of simulators and related tools; e-learning opportunities; demographic challenge; benchmarking studies. Through analysis of these subject areas, delegates will be able to explore examples of best practice from around Europe and take away ideas based on practical examples used elsewhere in the industry. The organisers are particularly targeting human resource managers and training directors from across the industry. An exhibition supported by training providers and technology specialists will be held alongside the three days of plenary sessions and workshops. Citef is also planning to offer a number of technical visits during the event.

The craft is understood to have two people onboard when it was reported missing off the Northern Ireland coastline.The launch was requested by the coastguard when the aircraft was reported overdue at 8.30pm and a major search operation was put in place.Joining the five RNLI lifeboats in the major search were the Irish Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue 116 along with a rescue helicopter from Prestwick and local coastguard teams.Search conditions were described as extremely challenging as visibility was poor due to thick fog. Larne RNLI launched their all-weather lifeboat and D class lifeboat, Red Bay RNLI launched their Atlantic 85 and all-weather lifeboat along with the all-weather lifeboat from Portpatrick. The lifeboats between them searched a huge area off the Northern Ireland coastline before standing down the search after 4am.It is expected that the search will resume again this morning; however weather conditions remain poor with heavy fog still present.

I am inviting them to take this rare opportunity to show their talents,” he added.Villaruz added that the three-hour tryout will be held just right after the championship match of the 2017 Isuzu 17 and under Girls Volleyball League on Sunday at the said venue.The Lady Falcons struggled heavily during the previous UAAP season under American head coach Airess Padda where they only managed to win a single game – against the University of the East Lady Warriors, 25-15, 25-19, 25-15 – in 14 matches.The Lady Falcons is expected to maintain the core of its lineup led by outside hitter Galanza, middle blocker Mary Joy Dacoron, hitter Bernadette Flora, and libero Jellie Tempiatura./PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full]

Unai Emery believes he will be handed the time necessary to “get Arsenal back to where the club deserves to be” despite a recent slump threatening the Gunners’ chances of a return to the Champions League.After a 22-game unbeaten run between August and December, Arsenal have lost three of their last six Premier League matches to fall six points behind Chelsea in the battle for a top-four finish.However, the Spaniard is confident that he is not working under the same time pressure to succeed as he was at Paris Saint-Germain where one league title and four domestic cups in two seasons in charge were not enough to keep his job due to a lack of progress in the Champions League.“The idea is to get Arsenal back to where the club deserves to be, but it needs time,” Emery told Sky Sports.“At Arsenal, it’s maybe the first time I feel that I have the support to build up from the bottom in order to get where we want to be.“It allows us to work more for the long-term –- or at least, ‘long-term’ in football terms. It supports the kind of work we want to do at this club.”Of more immediate concern for Emery is making the best of the resources available to him after claiming the club doesn’t have the funds for any permanent transfers this month.A large chunk of Arsenal’s budget is tied up in a lucrative deal handed to Mesut Ozil last January that runs until 2021.The former German international is the club’s highest earner, reportedly on £350,000 a week.However, Ozil failed to even make Emery’s squad for the 1-0 defeat at West Ham last weekend and has been routinely dropped throughout the course of the season.Emery, though, is hoping his treatment of the former Real Madrid star will get the best out of Ozil rather than force him out of the club.“At certain times, you have to provoke friction with footballers,” added Emery.“From that friction, you can get something more out of them, something from inside, a greater sense of ambition or maybe even a complaint –- a complaint regarding the team can be positive.“As a manager, you have to be careful because that friction can break a relationship. But I believe in always looking for more, both individually and collectively.“In the end, the main thing with any footballer is that their qualities are used to benefit the team. As a manager, you have to get the maximum out of that player and at the same time make sure that he fits with the rest of the team so that everyone is better.”
The dust is all but settled and the clouds are just about cleared on Jamaica’s 12-medal haul at the just-concluded IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar. Three gold, five silver, and four bronze propelled Jamaica to third on the medal table behind perennial powerhouses USA and long-distance kingpins Kenya. In terms of overall medals won relative to population size, Jamaica is pound for pound the top nation in the sport of athletics, but even more important, this overall performance in Doha and the subsequent reaction of the nation confirms that track and field is still the king of sports in Jamaica. Football, no doubt, still enjoys wider grass-roots participation and support. Cricket still has some remnants of its umbilical connection to the people, while netball still holds a special place in the hearts of Jamaicans, but in terms of consistent international impact at the very highest level, no other sport comes close. It was one thing to declare athletics king when the freak of nature named Usain Bolt was defying science with his superhuman performances. These performances provided the inspiration and motivational sparks that ignited what can be regarded as Jamaica’s golden era in the sport. But with the likes of Bolt, Veronica Campbell-Brown, and Asafa Powell all yielding to Father time, what has basically been a new generation of Jamaican athletes was able to march on to the biggest stage and churn out our second-highest medal haul at the World Championships. Even more profoundly, this serves as positive confirmation that athletics in Jamaica is bigger than any one, or two, or three individuals. In a recent discussion with one track and field enthusiast, he expressed his fear of the worst as it relates to the next generation of Jamaican male sprinters, going on and on about the need for the nation, led by the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, to put proper systems and structures in place to ensure that what happened to West Indies cricket does not happen to Jamaican athletics after that golden era. I assured him that based on the rapid and impactful response to the departure of Bolt and company, other stalwarts manifested in Doha, meaning that the rate and magnitude of decline that inflicted West Indies cricket will never happen to Jamaican athletics. There are working structures and systems in place that ensure that no Jamaican boy or girl with reasonable athletic talent goes undiscovered. These systems kick into action as early as at the preparatory- and primary- school levels and escalates rapidly in the world-renowned ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships (Champs), to the extent where high-school scouts will be knocking on the door of every youngster with that defined potential to ensure every chance of further development. That network, attitude, and intent do not obtain in any other local sport. ISSUES REMAIN Amidst the meticulousness and passion that permeate the track and field fraternity generally, there are still issues. One challenge plaguing the sport, which continues to top the agenda, is the apparent overexuberance and naivety in the preparing of athletes for Champs. The mind-boggling level of performances churned out year after year at Champs is not being reflected in the transition rate of these young athletes into the professional ranks. Unfortunately, that narrative is still stuck in the acknowledgement phase, where all stakeholders agree that there is genuine cause for concern. Things are not perfect, and there is indeed some trouble in paradise, but all things considered, it is reasonable to conclude that every other sport and sporting body in Jamaica wishes they had the impact, international reach, and global respect that Jamaican athletics continues to enjoy as we all bask in the coronation of Jamaican track and field as the supreme king of Jamaican sports.
