The 37-year-old French star’s contract is up, and he is expected to return to Europe to finish his career.“I don’t think we’ve ever had a player in the league that has what Thierry has,” Red Bulls coach Mike Petke said. “I’m honored to have played with him, coached him and been with him every day in practice. Whatever he decides to do, he’ll be successful.”Heaps played for the Revolution from 2001-11 and helped the team reach the MLS Cup four times, in ’02 and again from 2005-07.Each time they lost.Heaps took over as head coach in 2012 after back-to-back years missing the playoffs. After one more rebuilding year, he had them back in the postseason last year and now back in the championship game.“We wanted to build something championship-worthy,” Heaps said, “to get back to where the club was in ’05-07.”Davies scored in the 41st minute to tie it, and then again in the 70th. Henry had a chance to give the Red Bulls the series in the 89th minute but his shot from outside the box was blocked by Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.The Galaxy won the first game of the Western Conference finals 2-1, with the second game in Seattle on Nov. 30.(JIMMY GOLEN, AP Sports Writer)last_img read more

Carriere had previously held several senior administrative positions in Ontario’s health care sector and is recognized for his accomplishments in advancing services and quality of care.Mr. Gaston Levac formerly served as President and Chief Executive Officer of various health care entities such as the Canadian College of Health Service Executives, Thunder Bay Regional Hospital, Laurentian Hospital and West Nipissing General Hospital in Canada.As a former Surveyor of the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation, Levac boasts over 20 years of experience in numerous surveys in Canadian and international health care organizations, including health services offered in various military bases and hospitals in the Caribbean.  Gaston is expected to greatly benefit the organization in preparation for its re-accreditation survey slated for June 2018.Commenting on the appointment, Levac said: “I am excited to have been chosen by the IHC-TCI Board of Directors as the interim CEO of the hospital in TCI.  I have been to TCI on many occasions in the past, so I know that I will enjoy my involvement here.  I am totally committed to working hard with all stakeholders to help continue efforts to provide excellent hospital care to the citizens of TCI and ensure that the company steers a steady course whilst the Board undertakes Daniel Carriere’s succession process.”Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital consists of two state-of-the-art secondary healthcare facilities on the islands of Grand Turk and Providenciales.  The public facility, managed by InterHealth Canada (TCI) Ltd, is one of few Diamond accredited health care providers in the Caribbean region.As recognized pioneers in health care Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), InterHealth Canada is a world leader in healthcare operations and management with diverse activities in planning, management and consulting.  Established by an initiative from two Provincial Canadian Governments, InterHealth Canada was created to export Canada’s intellectual expertise in healthcare to an expanding international market.

first_imgKolkata: The state government will set up a university to be named after Harichand Guruchand Thakur, founder of the Matua community in Thakurnagar in North 24-Parganas, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Thursday afternoon.The land for the proposed university which will come up on 8.8-acre plot at Chandpara, off Thakurnagar, has been selected and Banerjee has instructed the District Magistrate of North 24-Parganas to put up a board there. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe Chief Minister had come to Thakurnagar to participate in the birth centenary celebrations of Binapani Devi, known as Boro Ma in the Matua community. She accorded Banga Bibhusan to Boro Ma and prayed for her long life. Earlier, the state government had set up a college at Thakurnagar. Banerjee said the university will not only be for the local students but also those staying in the neighbourhood. “As the university has been named after Harichand Guruchand Thakur, the students will come to know about him and his contribution in organising those belonging to the Namasudra community that had been oppressed in undivided India. The movement was equally strong in East Bengal, now Bangladesh,” she said adding: “The Trinamool Congress has always supported those who have fought for the common people. We fight for Ma, Mati, Manus,” she maintained. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedBanerjee also announced the Matua Sangha Vikas Parishad. Earlier, she had announced the Namasudra Vikas Parishad. She said the names of the members of these two boards will be announced soon. She further added the state Tourism department will put up two gates near Thakurnagar ashram, headquarters of the Matuas. The entire area will be brightly illuminated. She asked the District Magistrate to prepare a beautification plan of the areas surrounding Thakurnagar ashram. Coming down heavily on BJP, Banerjee said in the name of NRC, some groups with vested interests have planned to drive out the Bengali-speaking populace in Assam. “Those whose names have been dropped from the NRC list should always remember that the people of Bengal are with you,” she said. Banerjee alleged that many people who have the voter’s identity card, ration card and caste certificates have been dropped from the NRC. “This is nasty politics and we do not support it.” Banerjee said that Matua community member and TMC legislator Mamatabala Thakur and seven other party leaders were not allowed to leave Silchar airport in Assam when they had gone there after the publication of the final draft of NRC. Banerjee wished that someday Thakurnagar would become a global tourist spot as well. “Never feel that you represent a backward community as no community can be branded as forward or backward. Read seriously and the state government is there to support you,” she told the students who had gathered to listen to her address.last_img read more
