Walters was dismissed in the 78th minute of the Barclays Premier League contest at Carrow Road for a foul on Canaries midfielder Alexander Tettey. The Potters forward will now serve a three-match suspension. Stoke have lost an appeal against Jonathan Walters’ red card in the 1-1 draw with Norwich on Saturday, the Football Association has announced. Adam was charged with violent conduct after he appeared to stand on the leg of Gunners striker Olivier Giroud. Referee Mike Jones did not see the incident during the match but it was picked up on television footage and, although the Potters contested the FA’s decision to punish the player, an independent panel upheld the charge. Following the FA’s announcement about Walters, Stoke issued their own statement on Tuesday which said: “The club gave careful consideration to whether or not to appeal Jon’s sending-off but we felt compelled to do so in the interest of consistency after three incidents of a more serious nature in the Premier League last weekend failed to result in red cards. “We are disappointed with the lack of consistency that this decision seemingly supports.” A statement on the FA’s official website on Tuesday afternoon said: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, a claim of wrongful dismissal concerning Stoke City’s Jonathan Walters was rejected. “Walters was dismissed for serious foul play during the game against Norwich City on 8 March 2014. “His three-match suspension will commence with immediate effect.” Walters’ sending off came five minutes after he had netted Stoke’s equaliser from the penalty spot. Following the match, Potters boss Mark Hughes expressed his unhappiness at referee Andre Marriner’s decision to dismiss Walters for his high challenge on Tettey. ”I’ve looked at the incident and there is contact and Jon has accepted that he caught him,” Hughes said. ”But both players had their feet high and I think the punishment was too harsh for the crime. Both players just intended to win the ball and Jon just caught him with his follow through.” Stoke already have midfielder Charlie Adam serving a three-game ban, which began with the Norwich fixture, after he was retrospectively punished following an incident in their previous outing, a 1-0 home win over Arsenal – in which Walters also scored a penalty.

I sat here two weeks ago, at this very keyboard, and told you that Humboldt State’s defense is getting better. And, at times, the Jacks’ young defense is looking like it’s starting to find its footing and producing like head coach Rob Smith knows it can.But for as much as there has been good, there’s also been quite a bit of not-so-good.Rarely has Humboldt State trailed by as many points as it did — 23 and then later on 27 — in Saturday night’s 48-42 loss to arch-rival Western Oregon, the …

Modi said what Rajya Sabha can do for the states, noModi said what Rajya Sabha can do for the states, no other House can do.The Upper House, he said, has a special privilege as it can bid goodbye to retiring members and also welcome new ones. Lok Sabha does not have this benefit.Expressing gratitude to the retiring members, he said the 53 members in their six-year tenure have seen two governments.”Both governments benefited from their knowledge and experience. This government benefited less, the previous one benefited more,” he said.The nation has benefited from their Parliamentary contributions, he said.Speaking after Modi, Congress leader Anand Sharma noted that while the House had cleared important legislations like Bangladesh land boundary agreement, insurance bill that had been pending for seven years and the insolvency bill, it was true that there was delay in some.He blamed ideological differences for it, saying they had led to stalling of the GST bill for years when the UPA was in power.UPA had piloted the GST bill but BJP-ruled states like Gujarat had opposed the draft.A wrong image was created outside that no work is transacted in Rajya Sabha, he said, adding obstructions are part of democracy and are used to put across reservations on policies and programmes.He, however, regretted the “bitterness” in political discourse saying debate and discussion are part of Indias rich democratic legacy.”One has to be able to listen to dissenting voices without taking them personally but as ideological differences,” he said.advertisement”Government role in building consensus is important. Opposition also has a role but government has a bigger role,” the Congress leader said. PTI ANZ RT

HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s auditor general attached a firm figure Wednesday to how worried he is by the premier’s suggestions he strayed from his mandate in a report identifying gaps in the province’s health system.Michael Pickup said it was “zero.”Liberal Premier Stephen McNeil had criticized Pickup last week after the watchdog was critical of the province’s communications on health policy. The premier said the auditor general’s job is to ensure the government is spending taxpayers’ dollars appropriately.But Pickup told the public accounts committee Wednesday that he’s just pleased all 21 of his report’s recommendations are being accepted by the Health Department and the Nova Scotia Health Authority.“In terms of the work we’re doing, I have zero concern or worry we’re outside of mandate,” he told David Wilson, an NDP opposition member who directly asked him about McNeil’s comments.“Clearly we are inside mandate and if it gives me an opportunity … to engage in discussion, and people are interested in an audit, I’m happy.”The auditor general’s Nov. 22 report also pointed out shortcomings in mental health and homecare.Pickup said public agencies have done a poor job communicating the government’s plan to address problems in primary care, including doctor shortages. He recommended the province bring in a plan that would inform people on doctor recruitment goals, and when people should expect services to be available.The audit also pointed out that an online registry of people in need of primary care needed to prioritize the thousands of people on the list based on their health care needs.McNeil bristled at the implications, saying his government had done an “outstanding job” of communicating with the public about health care challenges. He told reporters public policy was the job of elected members of the legislature.Pickup told the committee Wednesday that performance audits are a normal part of his office’s work and public agencies have plenty of time to reply and verify the facts.He said his office sends news releases to the departments three to four days before the release of reports, with the goal of ensuring accuracy.For the most part, the Liberal members of the public accounts committee seemed to take a much gentler approach with the auditor than their party leader.However, Liberal member Hugh MacKay suggested the public may have misunderstood that Pickup’s study of communications methods didn’t look at the frequency of news releases and other communications strategies.“We believe that if concentration is done strictly on the framework of the audit it could be misleading to the public who may not understand the purpose of the audit or the mechanisms of the audit,” he said, while questioning the auditor.Following the hearing Pickup was asked by reporters whether his office’s work was in any way misleading.“Absolutely not,” Pickup said. “I think the indication of that is the acceptance of those findings and the recommendations by government.”Other than the premier’s comments, Pickup said there had been no government pushback on any of his office’s performance audits.“The independence is there, I’m not concerned. It’s business as normal for us.”However, Progressive Conservative Tim Houston said a leader of a political party shouldn’t be calling the credibility of the auditor general into question when there is no evidence they’ve strayed from their mandate.“Any attempt to undermine the credibility of the auditor general of the province is wrong,” said Houston.Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.
OTTAWA — The sexual-assault trial of former Afghanistan hostage Joshua Boyle will proceed today after the judge decided evidence given earlier in the trial is still admissible.Judge Peter Doody raised concerns Tuesday about the impact of two recent Supreme Court of Canada rulings on the use of evidence about an alleged victim’s prior sexual activity.The evidence he was worried about was given by Caitlan Coleman, Boyle’s now-estranged wife, during direct testimony in March in the case against Boyle, who is charged with 19 offences including assault, sexual assault, and unlawful confinement.The trial had already been delayed several weeks while the courts decided whether the defence could ask Coleman about other prior sexual activities.After hearing arguments made by the Crown, the defence and Coleman’s lawyer, Doody says he believes Coleman’s evidence was properly admitted.Coleman is to be cross-examined by Boyle’s defence lawyer this morning.The Canadian Press
