Clarke: SFA must take action as McInnes was ‘out of order’

first_imgSpeaking ahead of Wednesday’s league fixture with St Johnstone, he said: “I thought he (McInnes) was out of order.“I thought it was a cheap shot. I am not happy, of course I am not happy.“It was a clear penalty. The referee was 10 yards from the incident and saw it clearly and there was no reaction from the two Aberdeen players involved in the incident.“I saw the television replays that Derek said showed there was no incident. “Why is he allowed to come out and infer that Jordan Jones dived? I don’t understand why he gets away with that. Surely the authorities have to ask him to explain himself?“I would like to think they should remind managers of their responsibilities when they speak to the press after the game.“If you are going to make an accusation like that without evidence then I think it is disappointing.”The two sides meet for a replay on March 13 at Rugby Park, with the winners facing Motherwell in the semi-finals.Clarke is concerned that the replay adds to an already hectic fixture schedule awaiting his side as they still have outstanding league games to play.He added: “The one moan I have about the fixtures is that the Hamilton game was called off in December.“At the end of January I made a comment about the fact we had lost two games, we lost the Dundee midweek game in the league, and we lost the St Johnstone midweek game in the league due to cup replays for both of them.“I said at the time we should get the Hamilton game played as quickly as we could.“We offered two dates in February, both were turned down, and now we are in a position where we don’t have a date to play that game and that’s disappointing. It’s not very professional.“I don’t understand that the league doesn’t have the structure in place to say if a game is off then it has to be played by a certain date and if there is the first available date then the game should be played.” Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke has called for Aberdeen counterpart Derek McInnes to be reprimanded by the Scottish FA for claiming Jordan Jones went down without contact to win a penalty on Saturday.The Dons led 1-0 in the Scottish Cup tie before Killie striker Kris Boyd levelled from the spot after winger Jones tumbled to the ground as he nipped between defenders Shay Logan and Kari Arnason inside the box.McInnes said of the penalty incident after the game finished 1-1: “I think he goes down without any contact.”Killie boss Clarke was left angered by the suggestion his player had dived.last_img read more

The rise of Japanese cuisine

first_imgIndicative of the growing popularity of Japanese cuisine in India, food exports from the East Asian nation jumped 40 per cent in 2018. Even as it is working with various entities to further bump this up and has bestowed a government-authenticated tag on 36 fine diners. “Last year, Japan reached an agreement with India on the sanitary certificate of fishery products exported from Japan to India. Following this, in 2018, the export of Japanese food from Japan to India increased to about 1.3 billion Japanese yen (about Rs 833 million), which translates to a more than 40 per cent increase compared to 900 million Japanese yen (about Rs 580 million) in 2016,” the country’s Ambassador, Kenji Hiramatsu said. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe Japanese government is currently working on increasing exports of agricultural products and foods to India and is engaged in discussions with Indian government agencies including the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare (MoAFW) among others. “With FSSAI, we signed an MoU on food safety last October at the annual summit meeting, and are currently in discussions on improving the management system of food imports to India. With MoAFW, we are having discussions on exporting Japanese apples and pears to India,” the ambassador said. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardFor Japanese restaurants, he pointed out, “the availability of Japanese ingredients and drinks from Japan are essential. Therefore, in order to promote Japanese food in India, at the same time, we also need to work on the establishment of an ecosystem where Indian outlets can have easy access to Japanese ingredients and drinks. I will keep working on this important task furthermore”. He also pointed out that until last year, the number of certified Japanese Food Supporters, a tag granted by the Japan External Trade Organisation to fine diners, was only one in India, but now, the number has dramatically increased and 36 are certified in India, including 16 which were certified in February. How would he describe the role of food diplomacy in India-Japan ties? “I think we can understand each other’s culture more in depth at the ground level by appreciating both Indian and Japanese food. You can also learn something about Japanese sensitivity and sense of beauty through Japanese cuisine. “Japan is a country with a highly refined food culture, and the Japanese people have traditionally enjoyed a rich variety of food gathered from the mountains as well as the sea. In each of the four seasons, we can enjoy different kinds of agricultural produce and fresh seafood at their best.” “Enjoying Japanese food also means learning about the Japanese people and their culture. Through cultural exchanges including food between Japan and India, I think we can enrich our lives and gain a better understanding of each other’s country,” the ambassador explained. Currently, there are some Japanese restaurants operating in major cities of India, such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai, because of the increasing number of Japanese expats and also the growing awareness of Japanese food.last_img read more
