The Ghana international has emerged as a key component of Diego Simeone’s combative side but is at loggerheads with his club over a new contract. Partey has already rejected one offer from the Spanish club and his current deal still includes a £47million release clause. Arsenal have been heavily reliant on the likes of Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi in central midfield this season and Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster that area of his squad. Juventus acquired Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey on free transfers last summer but neither player has fully adjusted to the demands of Maurizio Sarri’s style, while the former Chelsea manager dispensed with Emre Can in January and is on the lookout for midfield reinforcements.

House prices making fast recovery in wake of election: CoreLogic

first_imgThe recovery in home values nationally is being driven by Melbourne.There was a bounce in sales across eastern seaboard housing markets last week and over the weekend, with buyers and sellers more confident in the wake of the re-election of the Coalition government and APRA’s moves to make the cost of borrowing cheaper.CoreLogic senior research analyst Cameron Kusher said the end of threats to changes to negative gearing and capital gains tax, along with APRA’s move to lower hurdles to getting first-home loans and the likelihood of an interest-rate cut, were contributing to the recovery.

Judge rejects charges against drunk mother

first_imgDominion Post 10 June 2013A grossly drunk mother whose two young boys had to be rescued by neighbours from their smouldering bedroom, has had charges of failing to protect them dismissed by a judge.Judge Stephen Harrop said the woman, who had collapsed drunk in the street, was negligent and had placed herself and her children at significant risk from an overturned heater.But he said police had failed to prove that she had not taken reasonable steps to prevent injury to the children.She faced two charges under new provisions in the Crimes Act that could have seen her face a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.The judge, in Wellington District Court, said the new law was in response to concerns about serious violence to children.“However, it may capture minor breaches if the gross negligence threshold has been reached.”The court heard that neighbours had to intervene three times in July last year, finally removing the two small boys from the house.The first time they found the woman grossly drunk and collapsed in the street. Shortly after helping her inside, they could smell smoke and found a heater had overturned in the boys’ bedroom and the carpet was smouldering. They put it out but left the boys there with her.The third time, they heard them calling out and found the woman sitting in the hallway with the scared boys in her arms.She was also charged with obstruction of police after an officer went into the house.The judge said her behaviour was a major departure from the standard of care to be expected of a reasonable person, but it did not breach the Crimes Act.http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/8775022/Judge-rejects-charges-against-drunk-motherlast_img read more

Anti emotional support animal fraud bill advances

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill authored by Republican state senator from Oldenburg,  Jean Leising to reduce emotional support animal fraud has passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 95-0.Senate Bill 240 would allow individuals offering to rent or make available a dwelling to those with emotional support animals to request written proof of their need for the animal from a health service provider if their disability is not apparent.The bill would also make it a Class A infraction if an individual submits a request for an emotional support animal that falsely suggests they have a disability, entitling them to have the animal in a dwelling.“Emotional support animals are well-disciplined, important assistants to people with disabilities, but far too many people are claiming their pets are emotional support animals so they can live in a building that doesn’t allow animals,” Leising said. “These pets can be a nuisance to other residents and cause damage to the establishment. We need to reserve these rights for true emotional support animals and protect the integrity of those who truly require the animals’ assistance.”SB 240 will now move back to the Indiana Senate.last_img read more
