first_imgOPEC, or the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, is an intergovernmental organization that was established on 14 September 1960 in Baghdad by its five founder members – Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela. “Yet we look forward with high anticipation to attend OPEC’s homecoming in the very near future”. Ihsan Abdul Jabbar Ismaael, Iraq’s Oil Minister and head of its delegation to OPEC, said in a letter to OPEC secretary general Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo that it was “genuinely disappointing not to be able to host the 60th Anniversary” following months of preparations for the historic event and emphasised that “the health and safety of all are of the utmost importance”. The festivities scheduled for OPEC’s 60th Anniversary, originally scheduled for later this month in Baghdad, Iraq, where the organization was founded, have been postponed. OPEC’sDiamond Anniversary was supposed to be held in the Al-Shaab Hall in BabAl-Muaadham, Baghdad, which was the site of OPEC’s founding in 1960. This month, apartfrom its 60th Anniversary, OPEC is also marking the 55th year sincethe Organization’s Secretariat moved to the Austrian capital of Vienna. Since its inception, its membership has grown by 11 – Qatar, Indonesia, Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, Gabon, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo. After Ecuadordecided to withdraw its membership in OPEC effective 1 January 2020, Indonesia suspendingits membership on 30 November 2016, and Qatar terminating its membership on 1January 2019, the organization’s membership dropped to 13. Barkindo added: “It is very unfortunate that we are unable to mark OPEC’s Diamond Anniversary in September at the same site where the historic ‘Baghdad Conference’ was held between 10 and 14 September 1960. “It was a historic meeting in all senses that saw the common vision and wisdom of our founder members and led to the creation of a foresighted organization that grew in stature and influence to become a distinguished entity within the global energy community.

The Spiranac has amassed an army of Instagram followers having initially found fame by posting trick shot videos. The 26-year-old had a short stint as a professional golfer after being considered a future star in college. But she has now turned her attentions elsewhere and become a social media personality. Spiranac insists Golf is stuffy, discriminatory and pretentious.

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City’s appeal against UEFA’s two-year Champions League ban has been lodged with the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The Premier League champions were given a heavy punishment by Europe’s governing body as they also fined them £25 million. City maintain they have done nothing wrong and are confident that the ban will be overturned and have now begun the process – although CAS have been unable to put a time frame on the appeal. A statement read: “The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an appeal filed by Manchester City football club against the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). “The appeal is directed against the decision of the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) dated 14 February 2020 in which Manchester City was deemed to have contravened UEFA’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations and sanctioned with exclusion from the next two seasons of UEFA club competitions for which the club would qualify and ordered to pay a fine of EUR 30 million. “Generally speaking, CAS appeal arbitration procedures involve an exchange of written submissions between the parties while a Panel of CAS arbitrators is being convened. Once the Panel has been formally constituted it issues procedural directions, including, inter alia, with respect to the holding of a hearing. Following the hearing, the Panel deliberates and then issues its decision in the form of an Arbitral Award. “It is not possible to indicate at this time when a final award in this matter will be issued.”Tags: Manchester CityUEFA< Court of Arbitration for Sportlast_img read more

first_img Vardy is expected to start in Norfolk following his two goals against Arsenal last weekend before joining the Three Lions. He has won two caps and started last month’s 6-0 win in San Marino and Ranieri believes Hodgson needs the former Fleetwood forward in his squad as they prepare for Euro 2016. “I think strikers like him, there isn’t too many. Maybe Roy needs one striker like him,” he said. “It is about his character. He wants to arrive at a high level. “It is amazing. This is a fantastic sport for the other players and he wants to show ‘yes, he can too’. “In the end it is important what you have inside – the strength and the character – because every day is a battle. “Your opponent wants to ‘kill’ you and you want to ‘kill’ your opponent. “You can play well and sometimes you play badly but your reaction is what is important.” Vardy suffered the injury after a fall in September’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa but, ahead of Saturday’s trip to Norwich, Ranieri eased worries over the 28-year-old. He said: “He has two broken bones but the medical staff have done very well to treat it. He wants to play and doesn’t want to stop because of injury. We agree as long as he is safe, and if the referee says it is okay, then for us it is okay. “He broke it when he fell to the ground (against Villa). A lot of players want to play on when they feel good. It is not a big problem for the outfield players but for the keepers it would not be possible. “He is in great condition and deserves to go there (with England). He deserves to be in the squad but it is up to Roy (Hodgson) to choose the players. “He is very good, he is a hard worker. He presses everyone, works the channels and the space, and he is also very calm in his decision making. He has improved a lot and I am very happy with him.” Nathan Dyer has also returned to training for the Foxes after a knee injury but will not be available for the trip to Carrow Road. He missed Saturday’s 5-2 defeat to Arsenal, Leicester’s first defeat of the campaign. Ranieri added: “Now I want to see a reaction against a very good team. It’s Norwich’s first season (back) in the Premier League again and their spirit will be high.” Press Association Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has dismissed any fitness fears over Jamie Vardy linking up with England. The Barclays Premier League’s six-goal top scorer has two broken bones in his wrist and has been wearing a cast while playing for the Foxes. He has been called up for England’s final two Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania next week. last_img read more
