Sunderland make official approach for Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

first_imgSunderland have made formal contact with Aberdeen over Derek McInnes as they seek a new manager, it is understood.The Black Cats have been seeking a replacement for David Moyes since he resigned last month in the wake of relegation to the Championship, and they appear to have honed in on Dons boss McInnes.It is understood Sunderland have now officially approached Aberdeen regarding the manager who led the Pittodrie side to a runners-up finish in last season’s Scottish Premiership and two cup finals.All three clubs relegated out of the Premier League started the summer looking for new bosses and Sunderland are the only one still managerless after Hull appointed Leonid Slutsky and Middlesbrough recruited Garry Monk.It is thought the Black Cats identified McInnes as their preferred candidate some time ago and the process may now move forward quickly after he returned from holiday.The 45-year-old is in his third managerial job having won promotion with St Johnstone prior to being lured back south of the border to take charge of Bristol City in 2011.McInnes lasted just over a year in the south west and was sacked by the club in January 2013 when they were bottom of the Championship, yet he has rebuilt his reputation at Pittodrie.He led the club to their first piece of silverware in 19 years when they won the Scottish League Cup in 2014 and the Dons finished each of the previous three seasons in second place in the league.However, having finished 30 points behind Celtic, who also beat them in both finals, McInnes could now be tempted by the challenge of bringing Sunderland back to English football’s top flight. 1 Derek McInnes last_img read more

Johnson at Lowe’s Motor Speedway

first_imgCONCORD, N.C. — Jimmie Johnson overcame every problem thrown his way including tire troubles that turned Saturday night’s event into a laughingstock to win his fourth consecutive race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway and move into a tie with Tony Stewart in the Chase for the Championship. Johnson started 41st, battled a failing alternator, a cut right rear tire and overtime to prove no one can beat him on the track his Lowe’s-sponsored team considers its own private playground. Johnson has won five of the past six events at the suburban Charlotte facility. “I just can’t wait for this thing to be over so I can get out of here and hopefully not be hurt.’ The smooth track surface was a concern all weekend because of the dizzying speeds created after track president Humpy Wheeler twice grounded out its trademark bumps. Friday night’s Busch race gave teams a preview of what to expect when Goodyear’s tires struggled to hold over long runs and the race was marred by a record 14 cautions. “We’re going way too fast here,’ Jeremy Mayfield said. “It’s not right.’ 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Biffle is in third in the standings, 11 points out. Johnson’s win was the one bright spot in a race marred by tire problems for 16 drivers including five Chase competitors because Goodyear’s rubber could not stand up to the increased speeds on the smoothed track surface. It forced NASCAR to issue a mid- race mandate on the minimum air pressure used on right front tires, and led inspectors to police pit road with a threat of docking points to teams who disobeyed. Stewart, Kyle Busch, Elliott Sadler and Kasey Kahne all lost the lead because of tire problems three of them crashed after their tires blew while Kahne avoided the wall. Many said the tire concerns left them too scared to push their cars to the limit, choosing instead to race at about 85 percent effort to prevent a possible tire failure. “I need a renewal of my life insurance policy, to tell you the truth,’ Stewart said to his crew when asked late in the race what he needed. center_img “I can’t believe that we always end up somehow toward the front at the end of a race … this one in the closing laps after a long night of adversity,’ Johnson said. “We changed batteries, the alternator had some troubles, flat tire, all kinds of crazy things.’ He took the lead with nine laps to go and was pulling away until Rusty Wallace brought out the 15th caution of the race with one of the many, many tire problems. It bunched up the field for one final restart and Johnson held off Chase contenders Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle to lock up the victory. last_img read more

SA calls for power producers

first_imgSAinfo reporter Under such a structure, Eskom will pay capacity charges based on the availability of the plant, while the independent power producers will also be required to enter into an equivalent term agreement with a fuel supplier to procure fuel supply. “Shareholder arrangement criteria are being finalised and are envisaged to include a minimum of 25% shareholding to be allocated to black economic empowerment compliant investors,” Eskom said. South African state-owned power utility Eskom is seeking statements of qualification from both national and international companies that want to invest in the country as independent base load power producers. In a statement this week, Eskom said that its multi-site base load independent power producer programme would be developed on a build-own-operate basis, with an envisaged contract term of 25 years. Eskom recently began construction on the Kusile coal-fired base load power station near Witbank in the Mpumalanga province, while work on the Medupi coal-fired base load power station, situated near Lephalale in the Limpopo province, began in April this year. According to Eskom, interested parties are required to select sites inside South Africa as determined by access to fuel, transmission infrastructure and water sources, while connection to the Eskom transmission grid shall be made in compliance with the terms of the SA Grid Code as published by the National Energy Regulator. In 2003, the South African government decided that future power generation capacity would be divided between Eskom, which would produce 70% of the country’s electricity needs, and independent power producers generating the remaining 30%. 18 August 2008 According to the utility, it will act as the single dispatcher with the power purchase agreement being structured on an availability basis, as is customary for base load independent power producers. The tender closes on 5 September and notices of pre-qualification will be issued to successful pre-qualified Developers on 19 September. The request for proposal is targeted to be issued on 13 October, with final bids closing on 11 May 2009, while financial closure is scheduled for 7 December 2009. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The first of Medupi’s six generating units will be commissioned by early 2011, with the last unit scheduled for commissioning by January 2015. The first of Kusile’s six generating units is scheduled for completion by 2013, followed by the completion on an additional unit after every eight months. “Under this programme, Eskom’s total requirement ranges from 2 100 megawatts to approximately 4 500 megawatts, with a minimum plant capacity of 200 megawatts,” the statement read. Further to this, Cabinet decided in 2007 that Eskom would be the sole buyer of electricity generated by independent power producers.last_img read more
