on Friday with US teenager Christian Pulisic, 19, set to make his 100th Bundesliga appearance, and new signing Alcacer his first, for Dortmund at Hanover 96.Goals should flow as none of the 52

for burly Belgian Michy Batshuayi.Dortmund hammered RB Leipzig 4-1 last Sunday on the opening weekend of the season, but keep an eye on Hanover striker Hendrik Weydandt.The 23-year-old was plucked

against Schalke, but showed enough in their 1-0 home win against Nuremberg last Saturday to suggest they could spoil Sebastian Rudy’s home debut.The Germany midfielder signed for Schalke on Monday

first_imgMr Downey todayA man from Donegal accused of four murders in an IRA bombing will not be prosecuted because he received a previous guarantee he would not be taken to court.It follows a judge’s ruling that an official assurance given in error meant the suspect could not be prosecuted. John Downey, 62, who lives near Creeslough, was accused of bombing soldiers in Hyde Park in 1982.The decision may affect 187 “on-the-run” cases, of people wanted for alleged offences in the Troubles who received similar assurances.The public interest in preventing misconduct by the authorities outweighed the public interest in a trial, Mr Justice Sweeney had ruled.The Hyde Park attack killed Squadron Quartermaster Corporal Roy Bright, Lieutenant Anthony Daly, Trooper Simon Tipper and Lance Corporal Jeffrey Young on 20 July 1982.Mr Downey, who was convicted of IRA membership in the 1970s, had denied murdering the soldiers and conspiring to cause an explosion.He became Scotland Yard’s prime suspect for the Hyde Park attack – but he was never extradited from the Republic of Ireland. He was described in court as a committed supporter of the Northern Ireland peace process.In May 2013 he was arrested at Gatwick Airport while en route to Greece and charged with the murders and bomb attack. Mr Downey had travelled to the UK on four previous occasions since 2010.But over the course of legal argument, he asked the Old Bailey to halt the prosecution – saying he had received a clear written assurance from the government that he would not be tried.He cited an official letter he received in 2007 saying: “There are no warrants in existence, nor are you wanted in Northern Ireland for arrest, questioning or charging by police. The Police Service of Northern Ireland are not aware of any interest in you by any other police force.”He said his alleged offences had been categorised as one of the “on-the-run” cases that would no longer be pursued in the light of progress in the peace process.In his judgement halting the case, Mr Justice Sweeney said Mr Downey had received an assurance in 2007 that he would not face criminal charges, despite the fact that police in Northern Ireland knew he was still wanted by Scotland Yard. Although police soon realised they had made a mistake, the assurance was never withdrawn.The Crown Prosecution Service had argued that the assurance was given in error – but the judge said it amounted to a “catastrophic failure” that misled the defendant. A trial would therefore be an abuse of executive power.Sinn Fein has welcomed the decision.BREAKING NEWS: JOHN DOWNEY CLEARED OF HYDE PARK BOMBING was last modified: February 26th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:John Downeylast_img read more

first_imgThis weekend marks the fourth year of Small Business Saturday, where customers are encouraged to shop local in the run up to Christmas.December 2nd is the day set aside this year by Retail Excellence Ireland to profile small businesses and encourage consumers to shop locally and support jobs and enterprises in their respective communities.The campaign comes at an important time when more customers are shopping online and doing cross-border shopping. Retail Excellence promotes the message that every €10 spent locally is worth €40 in terms of supported employment and support for local businesses. Deputy CEO of Retail Excellence Lorraine Higgins said, “It is important to recognise the massive impact small businesses have on our economy, both nationally and locally.“With 37,400 businesses and 282,000 Irish jobs dependent on the industry initiatives like Small Business Saturday are crucial to encourage consumers to shop local and support retailers in Ireland”.“This initiative is critically important at a time when two-thirds of consumer spend online is fulfilled by businesses operating outside Ireland and in the face of falling excise figures recorded by the Department of Finance which is largely indicative of an increase in cross border shopping”.“Consequentially, retailers are struggling to compete which is exacerbated by the sizeable differential in business costs and the VAT rate applicable between the U.K. and here. “With sterling consistently devaluing following Brexit, British businesses positive economies of scale and their competitive pricing it is clear the challenge to Irish retail is immense”.“That said, we want consumers to understand that their small change can make a big difference on Small Business Saturday in their local economy as €10 spent locally is worth €40 in terms of supported employment, supported communities and helping the business to continue to operate year round.“So, we would urge everyone to support those retailers operating in Ireland on December 2 and for the remainder of the festive shopping period”.Shoppers urged to make one small change on Small Business Saturday was last modified: December 1st, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:RETAIL EXCELLENCE IRELANDsmall business saturdaylast_img read more

first_imgQuelles sont les langues parlees par les sud-africains ? L’Afrique du Sud est-elle une democratie ? Y a-t-il de grandes villes avec des equipements modernes ? Les routes sont-elles goudronnees ? De combien d’argent aurai-je besoin ? .Vous avez trois minutes a nous accorder ? Voici pourquoi l’Afrique du Sud va vous surprendre.Bienvenu a la pointe australe de l’Afrique. Ici, deux grands oceans se rencontrent, le beau temps dure presque toute l’annee et le gros gibier se balade juste a la limite des lumieres de la ville.C’est ici que l’humanite est nee : les traces de nos ancetres sont toujours visibles dans des empreintes fossilisees de 80 000 ans et les peintures rupestres les plus anciennes du monde.Aujourd’hui, l’Afrique du Sud est le moteur de l’Afrique, l’economie la plus avance et la plus diversifiee du continent avec des infrastructures comparables a celles de n’importe quel pays dans les premiers rangs mondiaux.Vous pouvez conduire sur les autoroutes larges et goudronnees de 2000 kilometres allant de Musina tout en haut du pays jusqu’au Cap tout en bas. Ou rejoignez les millions de voyageurs du monde entier qui debarquent dans nos aeroports chaque annee.Environ deux tiers de l’electricite de l’Afrique sont produits ici. Environ 40 % des telephones se trouvent ici. Plus de la moitie du platine mondial et 10 % de l’or du monde sont extraits ici. Et presque tous ceux qui nous rendent visite sont surpris de voir ce que l’on peut faire avec un dollar, un euro ou une livre sterling. Bienvenu en Republique d’Afrique du Sud.Qui vit en Afrique du Sud ?L’Afrique du Sud est une nation de plus de 47 millions de personnes d’origines, cultures, langues et croyances diverses. Environ 79 % de la population est noire (ou africaine), 9 % est blanche, 9 % est de couleur, ce qui correspond a la designation locale des personnes descendant d’un melange entre africains, asiatiques et blancs, et 2,5 % est indienne/asiatique. Un peu plus de la moitie de la population vit dans les villes.Les deux tiers des sud-africains sont chretiens, la plus grande eglise etant l’Église Chretienne indigene de Zion, suivies de l’Église Reformee Neerlandaise et de l’Église Catholique. De nombreuses eglises associent les croyances chretiennes et traditionnelles et beaucoup de non chretiens epousent ces croyances traditionnelles. D’autres religions importantes, bien que plus limitees, sont l’Islam, l’Hindouisme et le Judaisme.Quelles sont les langues parlees par la population ?Il existe 11 langues officiellement reconnues, dont la plupart sont des langues indigenes d’Afrique du Sud. Environ 40 % de la population parle soit le isiZulu ou le isiXhosa. Vous ne parlez ni l’une ni l’autre ? Si votre anglais est correct, ne vous inquietez pas. Partout ou vous irez, vous trouverez quelqu’un qui parle ou comprend l’anglais.L’anglais est la langue des villes, du commerce et des banques, du gouvernement, des panneaux routiers et des documents officiels. Les panneaux routiers et les formulaires officiels sont en anglais. Le President fait ses discours en anglais. Dans tous les hotels, les receptionnistes, serveurs et portiers parlent anglais.Une autre langue importante est l’afrikaans, un derive du neerlandais que les europeens du nord seront surpris de suivre avec facilite.L’Afrique du Sud est-elle une democratie ?L’Afrique du Sud est une democratie a partis multiples dynamique possedant un systeme judiciaire independant et une presse variee et libre. L’une des constitutions les plus jeunes du monde, et les plus progressistes, protege les citoyens et les visiteurs. On ne vous emprisonnera pas pour avoir donne votre avis, meme si il est contraire (mais veillez a ne pas fumer dans un restaurant plein !)Et l’apartheid ?Jusqu’en 1994, l’Afrique du Sud etait connue pour l’apartheid ou autorite de la minorite blanche. La remarquable capacite du pays a laisser derriere lui des siecles de haine raciale en faveur d’une reconciliation a largement ete perçue comme un “miracle” social, inspirant des efforts de paix similaires dans des endroits comme l’Irlande du Nord ou le Rwanda. L’Afrique du Sud post-apartheid possede un gouvernement rassemblant toutes les races et est souvent surnommee la nation arc-en-ciel, une expression creee Desmond Tutu, gagnant du Prix Nobel de la Paix.Les entreprises etrangeres sont-elles les bienvenues ?Le drapeau de  l’ouverture au commerce  a ete hisse. Le pays propose un environnement favorable aux investisseurs dans lequel une detention etrangere a 100 % est autorisee. Le rapatriement des benefices est liberal. Le taux de change est favorable. Et si vous voulez faire des affaires n’importe ou en Afrique, c’est la porte du continent.En savoir plus : Une ouverture au commerceQuel temps fait-il ?Estival sans etre etouffant. À Johannesburg, la capitale commerciale du pays, le temps est doux toute l’annee mais peut etre frais la nuit. Durban, le plus grand port, est un paradis des plages chaud et parfois humide. Et au Cap, ou les voyageurs affluent pour admirer certains des paysages les plus spectaculaires au monde, le temps est habituellement chaud mais changeant. Si vous venez de l’hemisphere nord, rappelez-vous que lorsque c’est l’hiver chez vous, c’est l’ete ici. Apportez des lunettes de soleil et une creme solaire, laissez votre mackintosh a la maison.En savoir plus : Le temps et le climat de l’Afrique du SudEst-ce un grand pays ?Pour un europeen, oui. Le pays couvre 1,2 millions de kilometres carres, autant que tous les pays d’Europe ensemble. Pour un americain, peut etre pas : c’est un huitieme de la surface des USA. Cependant, il faut plus d’une journee d’autoroute pour aller de Johannesburg au nord au Cap au sud (si vous conduisez raisonnablement) avec une topographie allant de vallees verdoyantes a un semi-desert.Comment le pays est-il divise ?L’Afrique du Sud se compose de neuf provinces. La province de Gauteng, la plus petite et la plus peuplee, bordee par celle de Limpopo, la province du North West et celle de Mpumalanga au nord. La province de Northern Cape, la plus grande province mais aussi la moins peuplee, se trouve a l’ouest. La province de Free State se trouve au milieu du pays. Et les provinces cotieres du KwaZulu-Natal, de Eastern Cape et de Western Cape sont au sud.Y a-t-il de grandes villes avec des equipements modernes ?Il y a bien plus que des lions en Afrique. Johannesburg, une ville de gratte-ciels, est plus etendue que Londres ou New York. L’eclairage fonctionne, l’eau coule, il y a des autoroutes a plusieurs voies et, malheureusement des embouteillages. Vous pouvez reservez dans un hotel Hilton ou Hyatt ou dans un Holiday Inn et dejeuner dans des restaurants cosmopolites servant des plats allant du sushi au steak de crocodile en passant par le hamburger. Ou vous pouvez vous allonger sur un sofa et choisir parmi 5 chaines de TV analogiques et 50 chaines numeriques.Quelles sont les grandes villes ?L’Afrique du Sud a deux capitales. Le Cap, la ville la plus ancienne, est la capitale legislative ou siege le Parlement. Pretoria, a 1500 kilometres plus au nord, est la capitale de l’executif et abrite l’administration gouvernementale. Pres de Pretoria, et si pres que les banlieues se melangent, se trouve le centre commercial de Johannesburg, autrefois le plus grand centre de mines d’or du monde, aujourd’hui de plus en plus domine par les secteurs de la finance moderne et des services. La deuxieme plus grande ville est Durban, un port en pleine expansion sur la cote est et le passage oblige de la plupart des marchandises vers l’interieur.Vous sites que les routes sont goudronnees ?Oui, meme dans les plus petites villes. Les principaux centres sont raccordes par 9000 kilometres d’autoroutes nationales goudronnees en regulierement entretenues, comprenant 2000 kilometres de route a quatre voies et ce nombre augmente sans cesse. Les chemins de fer nationaux possedent plus de 30 000 kilometres de voie reliant les plus petits hameaux. Plus de 50 lignes aeriennes et plus de 30 millions de passagers par an passent par les 10 aeroports d’Afrique du Sud, y compris par les trois principaux aeroports de Johannesburg, du Cap et de Durban.En savoir plus : Les infrastructures de l’Afrique du SudSerai-je en mesure de telephoner chez moi ?Oui et meme plus loin. Grace a un reseau numerique a 99 % qui inclut les dernieres technologies en matiere de ligne fixe, sans fil et satellite, l’Afrique du Sud possede le reseau de telecommunications le mieux developpe d’Afrique. Les trios operateurs de telephonie mobile du pays possedent plus de 39 millions d’abonnes, couvrant environ 80 % de la population. Le nombre de Sud-africains qui profitent d’un acces a Internet, de connexions permanentes et d’un acces large bande a des tarifs competitifs ne cesse d’augmenter.En savoir plus : Les telecommunications de l’Afrique du SudExiste-t-il des banques modernes ?L’Afrique du Sud possede un secteur financier elabore de niveau mondial au courant de toutes les dernieres tendances technologiques. Des que vous descendez de l’avion, vous allez verrez des banques, des bureaux de change et des distributeurs automatiques partout. Les principales cartes de credit peuvent etre utilisees en Afrique du Sud, American Express et Diners Club beneficiant d’une acceptation moins importante que la MasterCard et la Visa. Les banques etrangeres sont bien representees et vous pouvez payer par caisse automatique ou Internet.De combien d’argent aurai-je besoin ?Grace a un taux de change favorable pour de nombreuses devises, vous vous rendrez compte que l’Afrique du Sud est une destination peu chere. La devise d’Afrique du Sud est le rand, divise en 100 centimes (cents). Les pieces se declinent en 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, 1R, 2R et 5R et les billets en 10R, 20R, 50R, 100R et 200R.Puurrai-je boire l’eau ?L’eau d’Afrique du Sud est de bien meilleure qualite que celle de nombreux pays developpes. De l’eau du robinet de qualite superieure est disponible presque partout, traitee pour que tous les microorganismes nefastes soient elimines et a la fois savoureuse et pouvant etre consommee directement au robinet sans risque. L’eau de Johannesburg, quant a elle, est aussi bonne que n’importe quelle eau en bouteille.Est-il sans risque de se promener ?Comme partout, oui, a condition que vous ne vous baladiez pas dans des rues desertes en pleine nuit. Oui, le crime existe en Afrique du Sud. Mais vous n’avez rien d’autre a faire que prendre les precautions d’usage. Sachez ou vous allez avant de partir, surtout la nuit. Ne montrez pas d’objets de valeur en public sans faire attention. Verrouillez les portes la nuit. Et, comme partout ailleurs dans le monde, sachez qu’il y a certains quartiers dans les grandes villes dans lesquels une personne exterieure sera une cible plus vulnerable. Il est facile d’eviter ces quartiers sans que votre appreciation du pays et des gens, qui sont, sauf rares exceptions, tres chaleureux et accueillants, n’en patissent.Pourrai-je voir des animaux sauvages ?Vous n’aurez pas besoin d’aller moins loin pour cela. À une heure de route des jungles urbaines de Pretoria et Johannesburg, vous pouvez croiser des lions, des elephants, des buffles et des centaines d’autres especes dans leur environnement naturel.L’une des premieres regions au monde de protection de la vie sauvage est le Parc Kruger d’Afrique du Sud, vieux de plus d’un siecle. Aujourd’hui, il fait partie d’une grande region protegee unique qui couvre des parcs naturels prives et publics et s’etend par dela les frontieres nationale dans les pays voisins que sont le Mozambique et le Zimbabwe.Il y a d’autres raisons de visiter l’Afrique du Sud : comme les plages dorees, les meilleurs sites de surf, des paysages spectaculaires allant de la montagne au desert, des ecosystemes que vous ne trouverez nulle part ailleurs dans le monde, une opportunite de faire l’experience d’une culture africaine inedite, et c’est egalement l’une des destinations de vacances les moins cheres que vous trouverez.En savoir plus : Experiences de voyage en Afrique du SudDerniere mise a jour de l’article : Juillet 2008SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgThe mobile application marketplace will reach $25 billion by 2015, according to a new report from World Mobile Applications Market, a U.S.-based market research firm. It’s yet another confirmation of the huge worldwide trend that is the proliferation of app stores.The mobile app market was $6.8 billion this year, the reports says, but will grow steadily over the next four years to reach $25 billion. And out of that $25 billion, Apple’s App Store will account for 20.5% of total revenues.The report cites a number of factors as contributing to the growth of the mobile application market, including the lowered cost mobile data plans, a growing adoption of smartphones, improvements to native applications’ usability and the ability for publishers to offer free and low-cost apps supported by ads, among other things.The firm also found that the global application market was one of the few industries not affected by the recent economic downturn. In 2008, mobile apps saw 146% growth in terms of downloads, going from 450 million downloads in 2007 to 1 billion in 2008, the firm said.
