High flying Bandari smack Tusker at Ruaraka

first_imgFresh from their hugely morale boosting victory over league leaders Gor Mahia on Tuesday, Bandari had a perfect start hitting the target in the third minute of the game when Yema Mwana pounced on a poorly defended ball from a corner, shooting low pastPatrick Matasi in the Tusker FC goal.The goal stunned the hosts who were coming into the game on the back of four wins in their last five games and they took on the task of trying to get back level.They thought to have done just that after 18 minutes but David Juma’s goal off a Robert Achema cross from the right but the goal was ruled out with the second assistant’s flag up for offside.Almost immediately, Peter Nzuki had an effort with a volley after controlling the ball well with his chest, but the rifling effort went straight to Faruk Shikhalo’s arms.Tusker kept pressing looking for the equalizer and new boy John Kamau thought his header was headed inside the net after beating Shikhalo to a Lloyd Wahome cross, but the ball was cleared off the line by Nicholas Mejja.Achema had a clean effort at goal in the 32nd minute when a well weighted ball from David Gateri found him isolated on the right, taking cool control of the ball but his left foot effort went inches off target.A minute to the break, Achema exchanged passes with Timothy Otieno with the latter being released into the box, but he had a poor first touch, the ball rolling wide.In the second half, Bandari came back stronger looking to get a second goal that would breathe some comfort into their chase.Abdallah Hassan had two chances back to back. His first effort was a shot from the right after quickly breaking off his markers, keeper Matasi making a save. However, two of his teammates were in better scoring positions had he decided to square back the ball.A minute later, he tried his luck with a shot from distance, but Matasi covered easily.On the hour mark, Bandari should have been two up from a swiftly executed counter off a corner, William Wadri racing away from the chasing pack but his effort after sliding the ball past Matasi went against the bar, and the ball kindly bounced into the keeper’s arms.Tusker thought they should have had a penalty two minutes on the turn but the referee waved play on after Wilberforce Lugogo seemed to have hacked down Otieno inside the box.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Bandari FC defender Nicholas Mejja pressures Tusker’s David Gateri during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Ruaraka Complex on August 12, 2018.

Guardiola counts on Liverpool bouncing back from Barca beating

first_img0Shares0000Fight to the finish – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola © AFP / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, May 3 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is ready for the Premier League title race to go down to the wire, and warned on Friday that Liverpool won’t be thrown off track by their Champions League disaster at Barcelona.City have dropped just 16 points all season, yet with two matches to play they are still only one ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s team, who lost 3-0 at the Camp Nou on Wednesday and face Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers either side of Tuesday’s second leg with Barca at Anfield. City meanwhile have had the benefit of a clear week in building up to each of their two matches, at home to Leicester City this coming Monday and away at Brighton the following Sunday.Asked if the deflating loss in Barcelona would derail Liverpool’s bid for the Premier League title, Guardiola said: “I don’t think so.”“The game on Wednesday was incredibly good. Liverpool were outstanding. Both teams were incredible.“I don’t think it will affect them, they fought a lot for this season, I think it’s going to the other (final) game. I think it will be not easy at Newcastle but they’ll be well prepared to win there.”City face a Leicester team who have won six out of nine league matches since Brendan Rodgers was confirmed as their manager on February 26.That run has kept Monday’s visitors, fresh from a 3-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, in with an outside chance of finishing seventh, which could be enough to qualify for next season’s Europa League.– Leicester threat –Rodgers managed a Celtic side who secured two draws against Guardiola’s City in the Champions League group stages in 2016, and Guardiola is wary of the challenge Leicester are likely to pose.“I think Brendan has shown his quality as a manager. In just two months, they are already playing the way he wants to play.“I saw three of their games and I was really impressed with the way they played. The players know it will be an incredible task for us but of course it’s already a final for us.“With the fact that it’s our last game at home, hopefully people will come and help us and we do what we have to do, which is win our game.”Leicester’s realistic chances of finishing seventh will be significantly lower if Wolves were to beat relegated Fulham on Saturday.But even if Rodgers’ side arrive in Manchester will little to play for, Guardiola has dismissed the idea that they will switch off.“That’s not going to happen,” he insisted. “The Leicester players will not come here for their holidays.”Guardiola will go into Monday’s match without playmaker Kevin de Bruyne, who has a hamstring injury, while midfielder Fernandinho is still recovering from a knee problem.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

In conjunction with setting up a PAYE compliance section in each tax district they also issued a detailed document called “ The Compliance Code for Pay as You Earn (PAYE) taxpayers.Compliance Code for PAYE Taxpayers This code was developed by Revenue to set out a clear and consistent approach to checks carried out on PAYE tax payers.For most PAYE tax payers the correct amount of tax will have been deducted from their earnings during the year by their employer.In some instances, underpayment of tax may arise as a result of the following;–          Tax credits, allowances & reliefs granted that the taxpayer was not entitled to.–          A change in the taxpayers personal circumstances meaning that certain tax credits, reliefs & allowances no longer apply. –          Loss of entitlement to exemption from tax or reduced rate USC.In order to ensure that the correct tax is collected and to prevent any build-up of tax arrears, it is essential that taxpayers keep Revenue informed with as much up-to-date information as possible about his or her earnings/income.Tax defaults may be corrected by the taxpayer in any of the following ways:–          Declare that an innocent error has been made. –          Make a self-correction of the error.–          Make a “Qualifying Disclosure”.Revenue intervention can take the form of either:–          An aspect query.–          A profile interview.–          An audit or investigation.Why would I have been selected for a PAYE compliance check?·         The Revenue may have obtained third party information regarding additional non-paye income such as payments from the Department of Agriculture, Rental Income etc.·         You have had a gain subject to Capital Gains Tax during the year, an example would be property/land or shares sold.·         You may be in receipt of a foreign pension.·         The Revenue have recently contacted 60,000 PAYE taxpayers and requested that they complete a Form 12 income tax return.What income types are assessable under a Form 12?·         Income from a trade or profession·         Farming Income·         Income as a Musician·         Rental Income·         Dividend Income·         Foreign Incomes – Foreign Pensions, Foreign Rental Income.When should I complete and return my Form 12?Typically, you will need to complete your Form 12 by October 31st in the year following the tax year of assessment. i.e. for 2014 taxes, the Form 12 must be submitted by 31st October 2015.What should I do now?If you have received a Form 12 do not ignore it.  You must complete the form honestly ensuring that you declare your income from all sources.  In some circumstances it may be beneficial to seek professional advice.We at THE TAX CLINIC are experienced in dealing with all forms of Revenue Intervention and the completion and filing of Tax Returns.To find out more log onto www.thetaxclinic.ie or call into either the High Road Letterkenny or Main Street Killybegs.Or Telephone: Letterkenny: 074 91 60550 or Killybegs: 074 97 32055BUSINESS: LET THE TAX CLINIC GET ALL YOUR PAYE AFFAIRS IN ORDER was last modified: September 25th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:The Tax Cliniclast_img read more

DDTV: Fearless Nikki is “fighting fit for Ewing’s” by scaling terrifying cliff

first_imgDuring the week, long term crutch user Nikki Bradley and mountain expert Iain Miller stood on the summit of one of Ireland’s most outrageous headlands.‘The Sturrall’ is one of the most outstanding sea cliff features in Ireland, it is a true monster of a headland sitting isolated and far from the real world. It sits equidistant between Glencolmcille Village to the South and the An Port road end to the North of county Donegal.Nikki was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer at sixteen and by twenty six, had two hip replacements. Nikki is one of less than ten people worldwide to live through what she has. Nikki hasn’t let this stop her, and after receiving the news that she would be on crutches permanently in 2013, she decided to establish ‘Fighting Fit for Ewing’s’.‘Fighting fit for Ewing’s’ centres around setting fitness challenges. Nikki says that “the purpose of participating in challenges is to highlight the importance of exercise for rehabilation and I am living proof that it actually works! Prior to exercising regularly I relied heavily on painkillers. I suffered from chronic pain and thought that medication was my only option. I hated it. I am a healthy person and always felt that I was damaging my organs with such strong medication. Within a couple of months of vigorous exercise I was off ALL painkillers for the first time in ten years.” The ridge Nikki and Iain scaled this week is approx 800m long and 180m at its highest point. The pair set off shortly after 11am and didn’t return to their vehicle until darkness was approaching.The challenge included a 10km trek, abseiling and rock climbing along with negotiating dangerously narrow pathways.Nikki who founded a fitness based awareness campaign called ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’, regularly participates in physical challenges to highlight the importance of exercise for rehabilitation.When describing the climb she said it was ‘an absolutely brilliant day’ but marked it as her ‘toughest challenge in Ireland to date’.Nikki walks with crutches due to permanent damage caused by radiotherapy and experiences pain daily.Since teaming up with Iain Miller however, Nikki has managed to successfully climb numerous mountains along with abseiling and rock climbing despite continued set backs.To keep up to date with Nikki’s adventures and to learn more about ‘Fighting fit for Ewing’s’ you can follow her on Facebook or her website www.nikkibradleyspeaks.com.
