Alien. #SassuoloJuve— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) September 17, 2017Andrea Consigli was twice called upon to keep out Juve in the first 10 minutes, making a flying save to his right to deny Miralem Pjanic before reacting superbly to block Gonzalo Higuain’s volley from close range.But Consigli was powerless to stop Dybala putting the visitors ahead in the 16th minute. Fit-again forward Mario Mandzukic sent a low pass into Dybala’s path and the Argentina star swept a curled first-time strike into the bottom-right corner from 20 yards out.Sassuolo looked bright going forward, with Politano testing Gianluigi Buffon, but they looked exposed to the Juve counter-attack and a better finish from Higuain after Dybala and Cuadrado combined would have made it 2-0 before the break.The home side finished the half in encouraging fashion but, four minutes after the restart, they were undone by more Dybala brilliance.Cuadrado fed the forward just inside the penalty area and, when it looked as though he had no route to goal, he produced an impudent toe-poke finish into the bottom-right corner.The visiting fans were in full voice but Sassuolo hit back two minutes later, Politano converting from point-blank range after Adjapong had prodded the ball beyond Buffon at the keeper’s right-hand post and forced Chiellini to cover on the line.The resistance was short-lived, though. Having earned a free-kick 20 yards out, Dybala stepped up and whipped a fine finish past Consigli to complete his hat-trick just past the hour mark.When @PauDybala_JR wears the  it’s always a hat-trick! #FinoAllaFine #SassuoloJuve pic.twitter.com/r5KMGllkif— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 17, 2017Blaise Matuidi went close with a volley and Cuadrado saw a late chance for a fourth deflected over, but the day belonged to Dybala, who was replaced to a standing ovation in the closing minutes after taking his tally for the season to 10 goals in six appearances in all competitions. Key Opta stats:- Paulo Dybala has scored 52 goals with Juventus (all competitions) in 100 games with the club.- Dybala has found the net in six consecutive appearances for the first time in Serie A (10 goals in total in this period).- Prior to Dybala, the last player to score in each of the opening four Serie A matchdays was Luca Toni in 2005-06 (five goals).- No player since 2005-06 had aver scored eight goals in the first four Serie A matchdays.- Juventus have scored 13 goals over the opening four Serie A match-days for the first time since 1959-60.- Juventus have found the net in all the last 16 Serie A away games. read morelast_img read more

TCI Employment Department says no renewal for some work permits enforcement inspectors

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, January 17, 2018 – Providenciales – Changes at the Department of Employment Services continue to be rolled out and this time it will mean that some work permit holders will not be receiving a renewal.On Tuesday, the Ministry of Border Control and Employment issued a media statement advising that final work permit notations will be upheld and that means, those having already received those notations will not be eligible for a renewed worker’s permit.   It is less clear what impact this will have on the migrant worker population in the country, as Magnetic Media was unable to get a figure on how many work permit holders have been issued the ‘Final Work Permit’ notation.The Ministry in their statement said, “This measure is a part of the Ministry of Border Control and Employment’s ongoing efforts to regularize migrant employment in the Turks and Caicos Islands.  While it is not a new policy directive, it is one that was largely not enforced over the years.”It is a common sentiment on social media by residents of the Turks and Caicos that there needs to be stricter enforcement at the Labour Department, many believe qualified islanders are being blocked from holding the higher paying jobs.   The ‘Final Work Permit Notation’ is a legal measure, supported by the Immigration Ordinance where in Section 26 it is explained that ‘A permit may be limited in duration to the period specified in the permit and shall be issued subject to such condition or restriction which may be prescribed…’Employment Services can take this position on a work permit for a variety of reasons, Magnetic Media is told, including that there is no Belonger understudy, that there is no company staffing plan, that the Employment Services Department Board feels the work permit holder is working contrary to law and can also be related to the length of time the work permit has been held by an individual.The announcement yesterday is further fulfillment of the PDM Administration’s promise for reform with a greater commitment, it is explained, to enforcement by Labour Department inspectors.“…advises employers that there will be increased inspections of establishments throughout the country to ensure that all employment activities are in keeping with the Immigration and Employment laws, and further to ensure that employers are actively engaged in the recruitment, training and promotion of Turks and Caicos Islanders who are qualified to hold positions that are currently filled by migrant workers.”The Ministry of Border Control and Employment is also entreating the public to report suspected infractions by employers, and in their statement published in full at our Magnetic Media website, provides the contact number.“This will also provide the Ministry with a greater measure of control over the ability of migrants to acquire eligibility for other residency and citizenship status.”The TCI pockets over $18 million per year in work permit fees according to published Budgets; the fourth largest revenue earner for the Turks and Caicos Islands Government.#TCIEmploymentServices Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Amazon Fire TV tops 30 million active users seeming to beat Roku

first_img Tags Comments 85 Photos 3 Amazon launched its Fire TV streaming products in 2014.  Sarah Tew/CNET Amazon’s Fire TV may be moving into the lead among video streaming devices, with its lineup of products attracting “well over” 30 million active users, the company said Wednesday at CES. That’s up from the 25 million Amazon disclosed in October, suggesting growth of 5 million new accounts in three months. And Amazon expects the number to grow soon, too. “We’re still in the middle of the ‘buy’ to ‘turn on’ period” from the holiday shopping season, Amazon’s head of Fire TV, Marc Whitten, said in an interview with CNET on Wednesday at CES. The 30 million figure seems to put Fire TV ahead of Roku, widely considered one of the most popular streaming-video products. Earlier this week, Roku estimated it had 27 million active users. The company said it defines an active account as one that has streamed content in the last 30 days; a single account may include streaming on multiple devices with multiple individuals in the household. Roku declined to comment on Amazon’s announcement.Amazon didn’t characterize its definition of a monthly active user. The company has Fire devices that work in more than 80 countries, according to its support page. Roku operates in 23 countries.The market for video streaming devices is exploding. The number of households with a streaming player has quadrupled in the last five years, according to Parks Associates, and Roku and Amazon have been competing for market share since Amazon launched the Fire TV line in 2014.  Whitten plans to grow the Fire TV business this year by expanding Amazon’s international partnerships, though he avoided offering any specifics about those efforts. Whitten added that the company has been “very happy” with sales of Fire TV Edition smart TVs, which are sets that have Fire TV built into them.As an example of a recent partnership, Amazon signed a deal last April with Best Buy to bring a new lineup of Fire TV Edition sets to customers in the US and Canada. “Smart TV powered by Fire TV Edition, we think, is a great experience, and we want to build more of them,” Whitten said.Whitten said there’s still plenty more work to do to get the right balance on promoting Amazon’s Prime Video shows up against rival content on Fire TV, as well as figuring out the best experiences for controlling your TV via voice using the Alexa digital assistant. Those efforts will be works in progress over the year.”There are things where voice is not going to be as fast [as using a remote], and there are things with voice where it’s not even going to be in the same ballpark,” he said, “and we’re just going to keep working on making those parts great.”First published Jan. 9, 12:36 p.m. PT.Updates, 4:20 p.m.: Adds context and more comments from Whitten interview; Jan. 10 at 9:02 a.m.: Adds context.CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.5G is your next big upgrade: Everything you need to know about the 5G revolution.
