just the beginning" the Frenchman said Zidane also understands the pressure associated with the job as Real Madrid is one of the best clubs in the world and the expectations are very high Ancelotti was sacked by the club after two seasons even after he delivered the Champions League in his first season at charge Failure to win any major trophies in 2014-15 resulted in Anceotti being replaced by

won’t adviseanybody to behave in the same manner but it happened It’s a part of life to sometimes make some mistake but that’s how you grow you have to learn from your mistakes and that is what I’m doing" he said On being asked whether he could go on to coach France Zidane said he was very happy as Real Madrid manager and wants to continue the same way "They (France) already have Didier

NewsWritten by Shalini Nair | Mumbai | Updated: May 2 2014 10:16 am The RFQ pegs the total project cost at Rs 1500 crore Related News To show some progress in its manifesto promise of constructing a mid-sea Shivaji statue before the Assembly elections later this year the Congress-NCP led government has called for tenders for appointing a project management consultant (PMC) without fixing a minimum or maximum bid price The Public Works Department (PWD) which handles government-related construction projects fixes the consultancy fee for PMC as a percentage of the total project cost or in cases where it calls for bids from contractors fixes a minimum reserve price However in this case the 145 page-long Request for Proposal (RFQ) makes no such mention of the fee leaving it entirely to the bidders to quote their price The RFQ pegs the total cost of the project at Rs 1500 crore a 15 times increase from the estimated cost of Rs 100 crore when the project was first proposed a decade ago Even if the PMC quotes one to five per cent of the project cost as its fee the payment could range anywhere between Rs 15 crore and Rs 75 crore Technical bids for the project are expected to be opened next week followed by financial bids by those shortlisted in the technical round The project is expected to take five years to be completed “There must be some projection in the RFQ about the payment it is not possible that it has not been mentioned” said PWD principal secretary Shyamal Mukherjee On pointing out that there is no such mention he said “I will have to go through the documents before I can comment” While NCP leader and Mumbai’s guardian minister Jayant Patil who chairs a high-power committee for the project was unavailable for comments a senior PWD official agreed that this is a deviation from its usual practice “This is a project that is different from everything we have done so far Hence we were not sure of the costs and have asked the bidders to quote their rates depending on their estimated costs” he said adding that the PMC would be finalised by June The technical committee that will screen the proposals for PMC comprises the principal of the JJ school of architecture architects from MMRDA and BMC but excludes PWD’s own chief architect The RFQ describes the work of the PMC as “providing consultancy services from concept to commissioning (on turnkey basis)” This includes acting as an architect for the project wherein it will flesh out the new design submitted by the JJ school principal for a 190 m high statue that will slightly be taller than Gujarat’s under-construction Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel statue The move has been contested legally by Team One architects that was appointed by the Ashok Chavan government to design a 98 m statue in keeping with state government’s then requirement for a memorial of the warrior king that towers over the 93-m high Statue of Liberty The new equestrian statue will now come up on an 16 hectare rock in

intervention The move comes after the state government asked the Anganwadi workers to withdraw the strike first to consider their demands After a meeting with Women and Child Development (WCD) Minister Pankaja Munde on Tuesday the Anganwadi workers union met WCD officials to discuss the demand to increase the honorarium The Maharashtra Anganwadi Workers’ Action Committee said that the department offered to increase the monthly honorarium of Anganwadi sevikas by Rs 950 and helpers by Rs 500 The Anganwadi workers have been on an indefinite strike from September 11 “The officials said that the hike could be given only after withdrawal of the strike Our demand is to increase honorarium from the current Rs 5000 to Rs 10500 for Anganwadi sevikas as recommended by a panel set up by government” said MA Patil of the Committee Patil said that the department officials did not even promise to consider their demands in near future “They stated that whatever the Anganwadi workers is getting is enough So it is clear that the government is not serious about our demands” he said adding that the Committee would meet Thackeray on Wednesday “We have sought his time to discuss our issues and would request him to take a stand on it” said Patil Officials from the WCD department said that the demands could not be accepted due to financial crunch “To raise the honorarium to Rs 10500 it would require Rs 1300 crore approximately The department’s budget this year is Rs 960 crore How is it possible to meet their demand So we gave them an offer on the lines of an increase given

the PGA of America and PGA Tour will discuss details of the move as early as Tuesday (Source: File) Top News Players are allowed to wear shorts during practice rounds at the PGA Championship That won’t be necessary in two years when it moves to May The PGA of America is moving its major championship to May for the first time in 70 years when it goes to Bethpage Black on New York’s Long Island in 2019 as part of a long-term plan that involves a major shift in the golf calendar including The Players Championship going back to its March date The Associated Press has learned Two officials involved in the discussions say the PGA of America and PGA Tour will discuss details of the move as early as Tuesday at Quail Hollow Club site of this year’s PGA Championship They spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced The change has been in the works for four years one official said The catalyst behind the movement was golf’s return to the Olympics along with the PGA Tour’s desire to wrap up its FedEx Cup before the NFL begins The move to May also puts the PGA Championship in the middle of the major championship season _ after the Masters before the US Open _ instead of being stuck at the end in August when courses typically are softer because of the summer heat and sports fans have one eye turned toward football Still to be determined is the how the rest of the PGA Tour schedule is constricted to finish around Labor Day One official said the playoff event in Boston is likely to go away after 2018 Another official said one plan is for the Greenbrier Classic typically held in July to move to the fall The PGA Championship has been in August since 1969 with two exceptions Jack Nicklaus won in February 1971 when it was held at PGA National in South Florida and last year it was held the final weekend in July at Baltusrol ahead of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro The PGA is scheduled for Harding Park in San Francisco in 2020 so there was always the possibility of moving to May during the next Olympic year However that would mean the PGA gets bounced around the calendar every four years The PGA of America was interested in building continuity and a move to May could energize what has been looked upon as the last of the four majors That also would allow it to go to some areas that were deemed too hot for August such as Texas Florida and parts of the Southeast It already has said the PGA Championship would return to Southern Hills in Tulsa before 2030 The last time it was held at Southern Hills in 2007 temperatures topped 100 degrees The move also could serve as a boost to golf courses around the country the PGA of America has some 27000 golf professionals _ going into the heart of the season But it also eliminates other parts of the country from hosting the PGA One official said two traditional sites Whistling Straits in Wisconsin and Hazeltine in Minnesota would not be able to host the PGA Championship in May Officials feel comfortable with the weather and agronomy for Bethpage Black and they are hopeful for good weather in 2023 for Oak Hill in Rochester New York The Players Championship traditionally held in March two weeks before the Masters moved to May in 2007 to get away from the biggest major of the year and create a sequence of big events through the summer By going back to March and creating space for the PGA Championship in May it allows the tour to end its season around Labor Day instead of late September when the NFL is in full swing and it keeps a strong sequence of events leading into the FedEx Cup playoffs The PGA Championship celebrates its 100th anniversary next year and it has a long history of moving around the calendar The first one was played in October in New York
