Old GSP makeover to start by end of next year

first_imgBy Lizzy IoannidouWith the signing of the contracts between the Nicosia municipality and four consultants, the planning phase of the makeover of the old GSP stadium is due to start at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020.One of the planning consultants, Grigoris Patsalosavvis, told media on Tuesday that if all goes as planned, the documents for the launching of the tender will be ready in six months.The project is expected to transform the old GSP stadium premises, located near the finance and interior ministries, and in front of the new THOC theatre building, which now host a public parking space.The final project will be able to host up to 18,000 people. Expected works include the construction of the largest public square in Nicosia, large green areas, a park, an outdoor amphitheatre, two cafeterias, two shops or kiosks, and an art gallery, while two underground levels will provide a total of 650 parking spaces.The area which totals 13,500 square metres will be roughly divided into two sections, with one containing more green areas (around 30-40 per cent), and the other composed mainly of paving.If construction costs remain at the calculated amounts, Patsalosavvis said, the project will cost around €15m, approximately one third of what the Eleftheria Square project has ended up costing.Initial calculations set the old GSP project to cost a around €92m, which was later reduced to €48m, and finally further reduced to €15m through the reduction of underground parking spaces from 1,500 to 650.For the construction of the project, the Nicosia municipality will be using funds amounting to €6m from funds allocated towards the purchasing of parking areas, while the rest will be granted by the state through the state budget of 2020 or 2021.Construction works also initially included a 25-storey hotel, which aroused heated opposition from the public. Plans were then presented for the construction of a 70-room hotel, but with the onset of the financial crisis and the lack of interest from investors, the plans for a hotel were disregarded.The first plan for the space’s makeover was drawn up in 1986, which included a large park area, a square for large public gatherings, and small shops.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Churchill crossed the Atlantic aboard the HMS Duke of York for conversations with Franklin D Roosevelt in December 1941 Eleanor Roosevelt was asked to lay in stocks of brandy champagne and whiskey (Churchill brought his own cigars); the work at hand was to be all-consuming "Almost the whole world is locked in deadly struggle" Churchill said during the lighting of the National Christmas Tree "and with the most terrible weapons which science can devise the nations advance upon each other" The issue before Churchill and FDR was the most fundamental of all: how best to wage a world war against the Axis powers During the discussions British and American officials affirmed the earlier product of joint staff talks Code-named ABC-1 the military conferences held in Washington in the first months of 1941 had asserted the primacy of defeating Germany first The other potential global foe Japan would be taken on only secondarily With his industrial might and Continental base Adolf Hitler was viewed as the predominating opponent whose defeat the Anglo-American alliance would come to see as the common cause On the 70th anniversary of Operation Overlord the amphibious assault on Nazi-occupied Europe we understandably celebrate the Normandy landings as the central act of the 20th century; what Churchill called "the most difficult and complicated operation that has ever taken place" is one of the great hinges of history Yet the road to the opening of the Second Front in northwest Europe was by no means a simple one The story of D-Day is as much about years of diplomatic skirmishing among Churchill Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin as it is about the landings themselves on the beaches where President Obama and other world leaders will gather this week And in that convoluted tale lies a lesson in leadership for FDRs patient maneuvering in 1941 42 and 43 was that of a President at once constrained and determined as he sought the right answer in the calamitous times What seems straightforward in retrospect was in real time highly improvisationaland at moments dare we say it Franklin Roosevelt led from behind As 1942 began several key American figuresnotably Army Chief of Staff George Marshall and General Dwight Eisenhowerargued for a predictably American strategy If the target were Germany first they argued then hit Germany first hard and quickly The fastest way to relieve the immense pressure on Stalin was to cross the English Channel in 1942 There was a problem though: Winston Churchill The Prime Minister was averse to a large-scale strike against Germany for at least two reasons The first was biographical As First Lord of the Admiralty during World War I Churchill had presided over the disastrous Gallipoli strategy that killed 28000 British soldiers in the ill-considered invasion of Turkey The experience crushed him (Afterward he resigned from the government and led an infantry battalion at the front in France) As scholars have long noted the second reason was his tendency to prefer secondary operations on the periphery of Hitlers empire in the hopes of weakening the enemy at less cost andthough this was and is much disputedplacing British troops in position to protect colonial and postwar interests Stalin for his part wanted a Second Front in Europe not today not tomorrow but yesterday And so Roosevelt found himself in the midst of a push-and-pull between London and Moscow Churchill carried the day for 1942 and 43 arguing for other operations and suggesting that there were not yet sufficient resources to mount a successful attack on the French coast As much as FDR wanted to take the direct route across the Channel he at first sided with Churchill against Stalin approving a Mediterranean strategy For Roosevelt the hour of decision came at Tehran in November 1943 Stalin pressed and pressed for a cross-Channel operation and Churchill while always agreeing in principle managed to raise a seemingly infinite number of reasons to delay Stalin spoke starkly: Were his Western allies truly with him or not Roosevelt then made his choice insisting on Overlord and overruling Churchill The industrial might of America had by now built a huge war machine; the men were trained; and in that moment in the Tehran autumn the new world of competing superpowers with Britain in a subsidiary role came into being Roosevelt was right to make the call he made at Tehran which led to Overlord in June 1944; Churchill was also right early on in resisting a hasty cross-Channel operation "It is fun to be in the same decade with you" Roosevelt once told Churchill For the rest of us it was more than fun As the triumph of Overlord proved beyond doubt it was providential Contact us at editors@timecom For proper coordination across the country and to create the hub for syndicating reports and updates from the mass action across the country.

term in 2010 cashing in on widespread support among the countrys Sinhalese Buddhist majority months after leading the Sri Lankan army to victory over separatists from the countrys Tamil minority to end a decades-long civil war The UN estimates that as many as 40000 Tamil civilians may have died in blood-soaked final weeks of the conflict With his popularity soaring in the majority community Rajapaksa embarked on a project to beef up the countrys already powerful executive presidency Meanwhile members of his extended family popped up in official posts around the Sri Lankan state despite allegations of widespread corruption Civil society activists and dissidents complained of intimidation and spoke of a climate of fear Against this troubling backdrop and with no viable opposition figure in sight Rajapaksa appeared to be heading for another victory when he called early presidential elections in January Then out of nowhere came Sirisena who promised to dismantle executive presidency and devolve power to Parliament The countrys Tamil and other minorities that had been sidelined under Rajapaksa backed him as did a significant section of the Sinhala Buddhist majority that had grown tired of Rajapaksas strongman ways Holding out the hope of a move toward national reconciliation he also vowed to setup an independent domestic enquiry into war-time rights abuses 2 Since taking office Sirisena been constrained by a divided Parliament Although Januarys election gave him the keys to the presidency Sirisena has been hamstrung by a lack of support in Parliament with many members of his Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) remaining loyal to their former leader Rajapaksa Teaming up with Ranil Wickremesinghe the leader of the much smaller United National Party to form a coalition government Sirisena promised to implement an ambitious 100-day program when he took office covering among other issues the devolution of power from the presidency an overhaul of the electoral system and a new right to information (RTI) law He told TIME that he would also announce the domestic enquiry into war-time rights abuses by the end of June But his 100-day agenda remains incomplete He has succeeded in imposing some checks on the presidency but electoral reform and the proposed RTI bill had to be shelved Meanwhile the government is yet to announce the details of the domestic probe 3 Now Rajapaksa wants to return as Prime Minister As Sirisena struggled to implement his agenda Rajapaksa returned to his home in southern Sri Lanka to plot a comeback meeting supporters and visiting Buddhist temples while his allies in Colombo resisted the new governments attempts to reform with protests and no-confidence motions in Parliament In early July soon after Sirisena set the ball rolling for the Aug 17 election by dissolving the legislature Rajapaksa announced that he would contest a seat under the banner of the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) a coalition of parties led by the SLFP His aim is to become Prime Minister Throughout his campaign he repeatedly denied allegations of corruption against his family and invoked the military victory over the Tamil separatists that won him re-election in 2005 portraying himself as a force for stability "This is an election that will decide the entire future of our country both in economic and political terms The 2005 presidential election was a turning point in our history" he told the Island a local newspaper on Aug 11 "If we had not won that election the whole history of this nation would have been different" In a bid to fan nationalist sentiments in the majority community he added: "Today we dont have a stable government national finances are in a major crisis and separatist forces are once again destabilizing the country" The prospect of Rajapaksas return to the political fray is an unsettling one for many particularly activists and dissidents who had faced intimidation or arrest during his time in power "It is a really scary thought" said human rights activist Ruki Fernando who was detained under the Rajapaksa regime while investigating the arrest of a Tamil campaigner against political disappearances "There are incidents of intimidation of police preventing protests and arrests but the intensity of such actions and the numbers have reduced [since Sirisena came to power]" 4 But the revival of a murder probe has turned up the heat on Rajapaksas campaign On Aug 10 police in Sri Lanka exhumed the remains of former national rugby player Wasim Thajudeen whose charred body was recovered from his burned-out car in May 2012 Initially reported to have died in a car crash a Sirisena government spokesman claimed recently that Thajudeen had been tortured and murdered by members of Rajapaksas presidential security guard The case was reopened this year amid allegations that the rugby players death might be linked to a dispute between him and one of Rajapaksas sons a claim that the former President denies "First they tried to portray us as thieves and when they have no proof of corruption to produce after seven months of investigations they are now trying to say that we murdered people" he told the Island "This is why bodies are being exhumed in the middle of an election" But the case could be "potentially very explosive" Paikiasothy Sarvanamuttu a Sri Lankan political analyst and director of the Colombo-based Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) told Reuters "It might go right to the top" 5 As campaigning ends the outcome remains uncertain As election day nears Sirisenas staff is preparing for a hung Parliament according to an official who spoke to TIME Minority votes are likely to go in favor of Sirisenas supporters while one recent CPA opinion poll showed that although Rajapaksa retained the backing of many Sinhalese Buddhists with 36% favoring him as the next Prime Minister a significant section of the majority community also supported his chief rival and Sirisenas ally Ranil Wickremesinghe who was backed by nearly 32% according to the Wall Street Journal Meanwhile although he failed to stop Rajapaksa from securing a UPFA nomination Sirisena has sharpened his attacks on his former boss in recent days issuing a letter saying that he would not appoint him as Prime Minister even if the UPFA coalition wins a majority "There are eminently suitable seniors in the party from whom I can pick a Prime Minister" he wrote according to excerpts translated into English by the Press Trust of India news agency "Not only you [sic] held two terms you deprived the party seniors opportunities by trying to stay on forever" Whether Sirisena could carry out this threat likely depends on the level of support his rival receives And campaign posturing aside whether or not the Rajapaksa is able to fulfill his ambition for a comeback will ultimately hinge on the verdict of the same constituency that sent him packing in January
