Robinson de Castro acredita que com 65 pontos o Vovô estará na Série A

Ceará Sporting Club


Depois da vitória ante o América/MG por 5 a 2, que reabilitou o Vovô na Série B e o manteve firme no G4 com 38 pontos, o presidente do clube, Robinson de Castro, mostrou otimismo quanto ao futuro do vovô na competição nacional. Para ele, com mais nove vitórias, o clube conquistará o acesso para a Série A de 2015.

Restando 17 rodadas para o fim do certame, Robinson acredita que com 65 pontos – os atuais 38 mais os 27 projetados – a equipe comemorará o acesso após a 38ª rodada.”Na nossa conta, faltam 9 vitórias. Ou seja, 27 pontos. È obvio que isto é um número que ainda vai se comprovar lá na frente, pode ser menos, subindo com 25 pontos, ou 29, não sei. Mas hoje, projetamos 9 vitórias em 17 jogos”.
Hoje em 3º colocado com 38 pontos, o Ceará tem quatro pontos de vantagem para o 5º colocado, a Ponte Preta, margem considerada boa para a diretoria alvinegra, que também mira a liderança do certame: o time está há um ponto do ponteiro Joinville.
“Nós estamos em uma posição favorável na tabela e pontuação. Se não estamos líderes, estamos há um ponto do líder e se mantivermos assim sempre, está ótimo. Mas ressaltando que temos o objetivo de sermos campeões da Série B. Conquistar o acesso é plenamente factível, tudo leva a crer, que é mais fácil o Ceará subir do que não. Não podemos mais oscilar como fizemos até vencer o América/MG. Tivemos uma oscilação, perdemos uma gordura, que conquistamos para estes momentos. A perdemos, mas temos uma margem boa, de quatro pontos a frente do 5º colocado, uma margem de risco que dá tranquilidade”.
Com a pontuação estipulada por Robinson de Castro, de 65 pontos, segundo o site Chance de Gol, a possibilidade de acesso é de 80 %. Em 2012, o Vitória foi 4º colocado e subiu com 71 pontos. O São Caetano ficou fora, em 5º, com a mesma pontuação. Em contrapartida, em 2013, o Figueirense subiu com apenas 60 pontos. O Vovô foi o 7º, com 59.

Candidatos ao Senado pelo Ceará gastaram R$ 2,2 milhões


Os candidatos cearenses que disputam uma vaga no Senado gastaram, até agora, R$ 2,2 milhões na campanha eleitoral, conforme dados do Tribunal Superior Eleitoral (TSE). A quantia é dez vezes menor que as despesas declaradas pelos postulantes ao Governo (R$ 20,8 milhões), o que pode ser explicado pelo fato de grande parte da propaganda dos candidatos ao Senado ser vinculada à do governador.

Tasso Jereissati (PSDB) foi quem mais investiu na campanha, tendo declarado despesas no valor de R$ 1,4 milhão. O maior gasto do candidato foi com serviços prestados por terceiros, R$ 293 mil.


Já Mauro Filho (PROS), segundo lugar no ranking das despesas de campanha, declarou gastos no valor de R$ 818 mil. As maiores despesas do candidato foram com publicidade por materiais impressos, no valor de R$ 270 mil, e com pesquisas ou testes eleitorais, cujo investimento foi de R$196 mil.

Com despesas bem menores que a dos concorrentes, ambas as candidatas Geovana Cartaxo (PSB) e Raquel Dias (PSTU) declararam custos de campanha em torno de R$ 15 mil. Enquanto Raquel já gastou R$ 15,8 mil com a produção de programas audiovisuais (R$ 7 mil) e com publicidade por materiais impressos (R$ 5,5 mil).

Tasso foi o único dos candidatos que arrecadou recursos de pessoas físicas e jurídicas. Seus adversários utilizaram recursos enviados pelas direções dos partidos ou pela coligação. De R$ 3,9 milhões arrecadados pelo peessedebista, R$ 750 mil foi doado a partir recursos próprios.

Pay parking improvements slow in Canberra after Auditor-General’s report

September 11, 2014 – 11:30PM

Tom McIlroy



More than a year after a damning Auditor-General’s report found the ACT government was failing in its administration of car parking in Canberra, just three of 12 recommendations have been fully implemented.

As an expert review of pricing gets under way, the government has flagged the possible use of licence plate recognition cameras as part of parking enforcement efforts in Canberra’s residential timed parking areas.

The review by transport consultants MRCagney will consider removing minimum parking requirements, developing and selling parking facilities and other improvements, including links between public transport and demand for parking.

Officials in the Environment and Planning directorate will prioritise short stay areas as part of a new strategy, set for public comment in early 2015.

Auditor-General Maxine Cooper used a May 2013 report to outline failures in almost every aspect car parking management, with faulty machines and outdated technology costing the territory at least $1 million a year in lost revenue.

Planning Minister Mick Gentleman said this week progress on implementation of the nine remaining recommendations was “well under way” and officials were working to ensure new parking arrangements were lawful, efficient and accountable.

Releasing an update on the government’s response to the report, Mr Gentleman said a new parking co-ordinator had been appointed within the Environment and Planning directorate and the government was assisting the National Capital Authority with the rollout of paid parking in the parliamentary triangle, due to begin next month.

“The government is currently considering policy options around pricing, offsets, supply and operations ahead of the release of a draft strategy for public comment in 2015,” Mr Gentleman said.

Parking fee increases will continue to take place at the start of each new financial year and the transport pricing strategy will be considered by the government before the end of 2014.

Dr Cooper found the government had not produced proper documentation to justify regular increases in parking fees and an urgent acceleration in upgrades to smart-meter technology was needed.

Her review said the Justice and Community Services directorate logged 13,416 complaints about faulty parking machines in 2011-12, or an average of 36 each day.

More than 10,000 repairs were made to parking machines in one year as the devices buckled under the volume of coins needed to keep up with increases in fees. The introduction of smart-meter technology was found to have been delayed by the fragmented management of the city’s parking system, in which officials and departments did not communicate effectively and no one knew who was in charge.

Dr Cooper said actual revenue from parking operations had “consistently fallen short” of budget predictions and in the three years to 2011-12 was $8.5 million less than the $70.7 million forecast.

The report also found the number of disabled parking spaces in the ACT might not meet national standards and that the number of disabled parking permits issued in the territory was double the number of Canberrans who identified in census data as having a disability.

A Justice and Community Safety directorate review on the allocation of disability permits found the ACT had a lower rate of permit issue than the other jurisdictions and has reminded medical practitioners of their role in certifying applications for disability permits.

As the final 18 pay parking machines are installed around the Hyatt Hotel precinct, management has been improved through a centralised system with live data on whether the machines are working, and more timely response to faults.

A tender process is under way to replace more than 900 on-street parking meters around Canberra and changes to inspector patrols are planned.

New South Wales expands Fluffy search as 199 request testing

ACT News

NSW authorities have expanded their asbestos search yet again after the discovery of a house in Orange confirmed to have contained loose-fill asbestos insulation before it was demolished two or three years ago.

To date, 199 homeowners in NSW have registered to have their insulation tested, with testing to begin in about a week. The requests are showing a pattern of concern around Wagga Wagga, where 41 homes so far are down for testing, with homeowners in Yass, Queanbeyan, Ku-ring-gai on Sydney’s north shore, and Cooma also coming forward in significant numbers.

The Orange house is the first confirmed to have contained the asbestos insulation outside Canberra, other than the 14 that have been known about for some years, most in Queanbeyan. It widens the area in which loose-fill asbestos insulation was used in NSW, and gives weight to suggestions that companies other than Canberra’s Mr Fluffy might have installed the dangerous insulation.

Orange is now included in the list of search areas, with Albury, the Crookwell area and Lithgow also added to the mix, bringing to 20 the number of local government areas in NSW offered testing. The scheme is voluntary, with homeowners invited to come forward and request the tests.

Heads of Asbestos Co-ordinating Authorities chairman Peter Dunphy, who leads the NSW investigation, said the Crookwell area had been added after a request from the local council, and Albury and Lithgow because of newspaper reports and advertisements from the time – the 1960s and 1970s – suggesting an asbestos insulation installer had been active in the areas.

Authorities still expected only a small proportion of tested homes would prove to contain asbestos insulation, with other kinds of loose-fill insulation also in homes and difficult to distinguish from asbestos on sight, he said.

NSW is still working out what to do with houses identified. Given the results of Canberra’s clean-up, it is not considering removing the material, but is looking at demolition or managing the insulation in place. It is testing homes to check asbestos levels in living areas. But councils are wrestling with questions such as ensuring homes containing asbestos are not sold without disclosure and not renovated without safety precautions, and with who is responsible for contamination and clean-up in the event of fire.

Fourteen search areas were announced in mid August. Within a fortnight two more had been added, and now four more.

The Yass council met with Workcover on Wednesday and asked authorities to consider making the testing compulsory for all pre-1980 homes, as was done in Canberra, a call so far rejected by NSW.

The requests for tests are as follows:

Wagga Wagga 41

Yass Valley 29

Queanbeyan 25

Ku-ring-gai 25

Cooma Monaro 21

Eurobodalla 10

Bega Valley 10

Young Shire 7

Snowy River 7

Goulbourn Mulwaree 6

North Sydney 6

Palerang (around Braidwood) 5

Boorowa 2

Berrigan 2

The 25 Queanbeyan requests come on top of 12 properties already identified in the town, one of which had the asbestos removed by the owners some years ago, and another of which is a two-storey block of 38 units.

The Yass council has written to the owner of the only home identified so far, but has not heard back, the council confirmed.

The local government areas where testing is offered are: Greater Hume, Berrigan, Albury and Wagga Wagga council areas towards the Victorian border, the Bega Valley, Snowy River, Cooma Monaro and Eurobodalla council areas on the south coast; the Snowy Mountains, Palerang (including Braidwood and Bungendore), Queanbeyan, Yass Valley and Goulburn councils around Canberra, the Young, Upper Lachlan and Boorowa areas, Orange, Lithgow, Ku-ring-gai and North Sydney.

Flávio Ricco comenta que o Tá Na Tela está roubando pauta do Domingo Espetacular

O “Domingo Espetacular” da Record, aqui já citado, gravou para a sua próxima edição uma longa matéria com a atriz Neusa Borges, falando que agora vive de um brechó na Bahia.
Acontece que o “Tá na tela”, do Luiz Bacci, também foi lá e fez a mesma coisa. A diferença é que irá ao ar no programa desta sexta-feira. Furou a outra.
