Justin Gatlin: “I Apologise For Any Wrongdoings Or Any Black Eyes I Brought Onto The Sport”

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #ITVNews #UK #London #USA #SportsNews #JustinGatlin #WorldChampion #100Meters #Apology #DrugBans #Testosterone #IAAF

Controversial 100 metre world champion Justin Gatlin has made his first public apology about the furore caused by his doping bans, in an exclusive interview with ITV News.

The American also said the booing he received at this month’s London championships hurt, but helped motivate him to beat Usain Bolt.

The sprinter has served two drug bans and has received criticism for reportedly not showing remorse for his actions.

Gatlin was first banned in 2001 for taking a banned supplement for Attention Deficit Disorder, which he had been using since childhood.

He was given an early reinstatement by world athletics’ governing body the IAAF the following year who also accepted at the time that Gatlin had not cheated.

He was banned again in 2006 after testing positive for the steroid testosterone. Gatlin maintains to this day that this was as a result of sabotage by a disaffected member of his team.

The American athlete says he wrote a letter of apology to the IAAF years ago – however he told ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott that if people want a public apology then they can have one.

“If they wanted an official apology, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I apologise for any wrongdoings or any black eyes I brought onto the sport, I love the sport that’s why I’ve come back to run and try to run to the best of my ability and for that I’ve worked hard to right my wrongs”.

Being presented with a gold medal for the 100m World Championships should have been a career highlight for Justin, instead it was marred with jeering and booing from the crowd in London, which the athlete admits “did hurt”.

He said: “It did hurt because I’m not there for myself, I’m up there for my country, I’m up there for my supporters, I didn’t do it for myself. Especially when I was at the starting line I wasn’t there for me. I was there for people back at home watching who weren’t able to come.

“Maybe the boos were for me but standing on the podium was for the people who have loved me and my country that I love,” said Gatlin.

The American star said he had to overcome his concern about what people thought about him before he came back to running:

“I wanted people to respect me, to love me, to know that I’m a hard worker like anybody else.

“I felt like sometimes that fell on deaf ears, and it took away from my focus of being a runner because I was so consumed by what people would think about me and judging me, that I really had to just dial-in and just focus on being a runner and let natural talent do all the talking.”

There has been friendly rivalry between the much-loved Usain Bolt and the 35 year old throughout their careers but with Bolt now retiring, public forgiveness might be easier to come-by.

Gatlin is next due to compete at the Diamond League meeting in Zurich this week.

New 10 Pound Polymer Bill Will Enter Circulation On September 14 2017

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #TheMirrorNews #UK #Finance #10PoundNote #JaneAusten #MarkCarney #BankOfEngland #WinchesterCathedral #PolymereBill #September14

On 18 July 2017 – the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death – the new, plastic £10 note was formally unveiled.

Jane Austen died in Winchester in 1817 and is buried in the north aisle of the Cathedral. The new note “will recognise her universal appeal and enduring contribution to English literature”, Winchester Cathedral said in a statement concerning the launch.

Production of the new £10 polymer note began last August and the Bank Of England has already printed more than 275 million notes, but they’re will go into circulation on Thursday September 14th.

“There can be no better place to unveil the new £10 banknote, featuring Jane Austen, and there can be no better time than today, the 200th anniversary of her death,” Bank of England governor Mark Carney said at the launch.

 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW £10 NOTE

  • The new note will enter circulation on Thursday September 14.
  • Production of the new £10 polymer note began last August and the Bank has already printed more than 275 million notes, but they’re not quite ready to launch yet.
  • The new note will be smaller than the current one – but larger than the new fiver. The size ratios will be the same as the ones between the old paper fiver and paper tenner.
  • It will be made of Polymer, the same materials as the new five pound note.
  • The new plastic £5 note sent collectors into a spin as they searched for special editions of the polymer bill – and history could well repeat in the autumn when the Jane Austen £10 hits cash machines across the country.
  • Collectors scrambled to pick up rare editions at the time – with low serial numbers selling for hundreds.
  • The Bank of England is currently looking into ways to make its new notes tallow-free. Saying it will “work closely with banknote polymer suppliers to determine what alternatives might be available”.

67% Of Britons Oppose Camilla Becoming Queen

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #News  #ExpressNews  #UK #London# #DuchessOfCornwall #CamillaParkerBowles #PrinceCharles #PollResults #PrincessDiana #PrinceWilliam #PrinceHarry #RoyalFamily

Recent poll fund 67 percent of not support the Duchess of Cornwall taking the title when Charles becomes King, with just 19 percent believing she is fit for the role 
In a sign of the heir to the throne’s fragile popularity, more than a quarter, 27 per cent, said they thought less of Charles following the recent documentary about his ex-wife. 

Camilla

67 per cent of poll voters do not want to see the Duchess of Cornwall become

Just eight per cent thought more of him.
The poor rating comes despite Clarence House’s efforts to rehabilitate the couple in the eyes of the public since they wed in 2005.Princes William and Harry proved far more popular in the survey, with Harry’s American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle regarded by most as a breath of fresh air for the monarchy.

Almost half of respondents thought more of the brothers for speaking out about their mother, showing that open-hearted Diana’s legacy lives on through her sons.

Tellingly, Camilla proved least popular with 35 to 44-year-olds – the generation who grew up with the Princess in the 1980s and came of age around the time she was killed in a Paris car crash on August 31, 1997.

Bodyguard recalls Diana’s suspicions about Charles and Camill

Three out of four people living in Wales – the title most closely associated with Diana, as the last Princess of Wales – oppose Camilla becoming Queen.
Last week a controversial Channel 4 documentary broadcast video footage of Diana from beyond the grave, laying bare the heartbreaking extent of Charles’s infidelity with Camilla.Filmed between 1992 and 1993 when she was 31 and had just separated from Charles, the Princess revealed how the adultery contributed to her bulimia because she did not feel she was good enough for the Royal Family.

The Sunday Express survey, carried out by Norstat last week, asked 2,018 UK-based adults aged 18 to over 65 a series of questions about the state of the monarchy.

Charles and Camilla proved more unpopular with women than men, with 17 per cent believing she should be Queen compared with 20 per cent of men.

Asked if they thought more or less of Charles following the recent revelations, 29 per cent of women said less, compared with 25 per cent of men.

Only eight per cent of adults thought more of him, with 64 per cent saying it made no difference.

Only 19 per cent of voters supported Camilla becoming the queen when Charles becomes the king

Conversely, 48 per cent thought more of William and Harry for speaking out about their mother, despite reports that their “soul baring” had raised eyebrows behind Palace gates.In recent months, the Princes have spoken openly about how they have struggled to cope with their grief over their mother’s death when they were 15 and 12.

Both contributed to an ITV documentary last month in which they revealed the intimate details of their last telephone conversation with their beloved “Mummy”.

The documentary made no mention whatsoever of their father.

Just seven per cent of those questioned thought less of the brothers for sharing their emotions.

Younger people aged 18 to 24 were most supportive, with 58 per cent backing the outpouring of grief.

Fifty-four per cent of women thought they were better off for speaking out, compared with 41 per cent of men.

 

Princess Diana

GETTY

A documentary about Diana laid bare the heartbreaking extent of Charles’s infidelity with Camilla. Asked whether they thought Suits star Meghan, who has been dating Harry for a year, would be a positive addition to the Royal Family, 33 per cent said yes, while 17 per cent said no.Fifty per cent did not know.

 

The mixed-race divorcee proved more popular with men than women, with 35 per cent of males believing her to be a blessing for the monarchy compared with 32 per cent of females.

Forty-five per cent of 18 to 24 year olds saw her as a breath of fresh air, compared with 26 per cent of 55 to 64 year olds.

She was most liked in Northern Ireland, where 44 per cent of the population approved of her marrying into the House of Windsor, closely followed by Wales at 40 per cent and London at 37 per cent.

Scotland was most ambivalent, with just 22 per cent supporting her as a future royal.

While Meghan proved popular in Belfast and surrounding areas, Northern Ireland residents were most vehemently opposed to the idea of “Queen Camilla” with 74 per cent against her taking the title, compared with 71 per cent in Wales and the North West.

Londoners were the most supportive on 25 per cent, despite Kensington Palace being synonymous with Princess Diana.

Find Out Why Israel Is Planning To Ban Al Jazeera News Networks Operating In The Country.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCOvered #BreakingNews #ITVNews #Israel #Jerusalem #Quatar #AlJazeera #NewsNetworks #JewishState #SupporterOfTerror #AyoobKara #BenjaminNetanyahu #Avigdor Lieberman

Communications Minister Ayoob Kara said he plans to pull the Qatar-based station’s broadcasts, revoke the press credentials of Al Jazeera journalists and close their Jerusalem bureau.

Mr Kara gave no timetable for the move but said he has asked cable and satellite networks to block Al Jazeera transmissions and is seeking legislation to ban them altogether.

Journalists working for the station in Israel said they did not expect imminent moves against them and Walid al-Omari, the broadcaster’s bureau chief in Jerusalem, said his office has not been informed by Israeli officials of any possible measures the government might take.

If Israel follows through with the threat, it would join Arab nations that have shut down the broadcaster amid a separate political dispute.

Last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a Facebook post that he would work to shut the network’s offices in Israel, accusing it of inciting recent violence in Jerusalem, including over an Old City site that is holy to both Muslims and Jews.

Speaking on Sunday, Mr Kara said: “We have identified media outlets that do not serve freedom of speech but endanger the security of Israel’s citizens, and the main instrument has been Al Jazeera.

“A media, which has been deemed to be a supporter of terror by almost all Arab countries, and we know this for certain, we will take a few steps against it, to express our fight against terrorism and radical Islam, and our empathy with the sane Arab world.

“The freedom of speech is not the freedom of incitement. Democracy has boundaries as well. When it comes down to the question what precedes what, I have no doubt, I prefer citizens and soldiers alive in Israel.”

Al Jazeera has already been targeted by Arab nations that are isolating Qatar as part of a dispute over Doha’s politics and alleged support for extremists.

Jordan and Saudi Arabia have recently closed Al Jazeera’s local offices, while the channel and its affiliate sites have been blocked in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain.

“Lately, almost all countries in our region determined that Al Jazeera supports terrorism, supports religious radicalization,” Mr Kara said.

“And when we see that all these countries have determined as fact that Al Jazeera is a tool of the Islamic State, Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran, and we are the only one who have not determined that then something delusional is happening here.”

Israeli officials have long accused Al Jazeera of bias against the Jewish state. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has likened its coverage to “Nazi Germany-style” propaganda.

TV LICENCE EVADERS ARE COSTING THE BBC UP TO £291 MILLION A YEAR

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #UK #London #ExpressNews #BBC  #TVLicence  #LicenceEvaders

There are around 26 million UK premises with the £145.50-a-year licences making up almost 80 per cent of the corporation’s £4.8bn income.

Yet fewer evaders are being caught despite increasing numbers of home visits.

Of 3 million enforcement visits in 2015/16 just 298,000 evaders were caught – a fall of almost 20 per cent in five years.

The National Audit Office estimates the rate of TV licence fee dodging was between 6.2 per cent and 7.2 per cent at the end of 2015/16 meaning the corporation lost between £251 – £291 million.

In a stinging report, the NAO said the BBC’s aim to slash the evasion rate to 3.95 per cent by 2020 is “unlikely to be achieved.”

Every percentage point reduction in the evasion rate is worth around £40.5million in extra income.

Reducing it to below 4 per cent would boost the BBC’s coffers by at least £91million a year.

Amyas Morse, head of the NAO said: “The BBC has made progress against most of its main performance targets for collecting the licence fee, increasing revenue every year since 2010-11, and reducing collection costs by 25 per cent over the same period to £99.6 million.

“It has, however, had less success achieving its aim to reduce licence fee evasion.
