Manchester United's Premier League clash with Southampton on Wednesday after being given compassionate leave to attend his father's funeral.Pogba was absent from the squad for Sunday's defeat at Tottenham following the death of his father, Fassou Antoine, on Friday.The France midfielder is likely to return in the final league game of the season against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford ahead of next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm.But manager Jose Mourinho said he had put no time constraints on Pogba and told a news conference: "I don't think he will be available against Southampton."I think that his dad's funeral has to be between Tuesday and Wednesday in France, so I don't think that Paul has the conditions to play."We have left him completely free to be back when he thinks he's ready."With United now unable to claim a top-four finish in the Premier League, Mourinho will rest and rotate players against Southampton and Palace before the Ajax clash."A final is a final and we have to go to the final with everything like Ajax does, because they have finished their season and they do not have any more football to play until the final," he said."But I have to build some teams with the minimum of ...
Simcoe County history - Orillia Packet & TimesThursday, March 09, 2017
Minerva Margaret Greenaway was a pioneer in medicine, albeit a little-known one.She was born in 1873 or 1874 in Simcoe County, in Barrie, to the Tottenham family of Tom Greenaway and Matilda Totten. (Tottenham was named after her mother’s family.)Greenaway grew up on the family farm that had been cleared by her grandparents in the 1840s. She attended the local public school and taught in Tecumseth Township before heading south to start her medical education.This would not have been out of the ordinary if Greenaway was a man. It would have been a short trip to Toronto, and bingo. But Greenaway was a young woman, and a young woman didn’t need to obtain an education in medicine.Luckily for her, she was among a wave (a small wave, but a wave nonetheless) of young women aspiring to a career in medicine outside of nursing – the only medical career that had traditionally been available to women.At the end of the 19th century, medical education for women in Ontario was possible, just not easy. Toronto and Kingston both had women’s medical colleges, thanks to the work of Jennie Kidd Gowanlock and Emily Howard Jennings. These colleges h...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
