Sir Bradley Wiggins insists he is unaware of any problem between himself and Mark Cavendish, but believes the Manxman has a chip on his shoulder because he does not get the same recognition as the five-time Olympic champion. Michael Wacha Jersey .There were rumours of a strained relationship between the pair during the Olympics, with Cavendish frustrated at being overlooked for the four-man team pursuit line-up after quitting the Tour de France early to prepare for Rio.He had been selected as fifth man but did not get a ride, and appeared to accuse hero Wiggins of freezing him out.Cavendish, who went on to claim his first Olympic medal with silver in the mens omnium, then had an apparent dig at Wiggins after being made to wait to give a post-race interview to the BBC, with microphones recording him mutter: Theyd be straight on for Brad, wouldnt they?Wiggins has not taken the comment to heart, saying in an interview with the Daily Telegraph: That wasnt necessarily a dig at me -- although people said it was.I think, rather, hes got a chip on his shoulder because he feels he doesnt get the same recognition [as me] for what hes achieved, which I completely understand. But were all good.British Cycling played down talk of any rift during the Games, and Wiggins -- who went on to win team pursuit gold with Owain Doull, Ed Clancy and Steven Burke -- backs up that stance.Asked who he will ride alongside in his final outing at the Kuipke Velodrome in Ghent in November, Wiggins replied: Cav. Im not aware that theres a problem [between us].The 36-year-old said the decision on the final team pursuit quartet was nothing personal.Thats not me freezing him out or anything, he added. As much as Id love Mark in there with me, weve got to be brutally honest about this, its about winning gold.Weve worked our a---- off for this and what, were going to accommodate someone? And that wasnt just me, it was Ed Clancy too, whos a huge leader in that team, but of course it makes more of a story if its like Brad froze him out. Adam Wainwright Jersey .

GOLD COAST, Australia -- After slow starts in his past two tournaments, Adam Scott wanted to play the first round of the Australian PGA Championship like it was his last.For the first time on this trip Down Under, hes in the red after the first round. The 2013 champion closed with three birdies for a 4-under 68 at Royal Pines Resort and was three shots behind leaders Andrew Dodt, Harold Varner, and Ashley Hall after a rain-interrupted opening round.Dodt and Scott were in the half of the field which finished on Thursday before lightning and a storm forced organizers to postpone play until Friday morning.Play resumed at 5:30 a.m. local time, and Varner completed his first round on Friday with birdies on his last two holes. Hall birdied four of his last seven holes.Varner, who tied for second place last year, said it was a good way to get momentum going. He was playing his second round later Friday.Matthew Griffin, who finished his opening round on Friday, was in fourth spot after a 66.American player Julian Suri, who missed out by one stroke on getting a full card on the European Tour last month, and Ryan Fox of New Zealand were next at 5 under.Scott has a share of seventh place, and was more content with his start than he had been in the previous two weeks.Its the last week of the year. Theres no `Ill get them next week -- (I) just have to make it count, Scott saiid. Red Schoendienst Jersey. . It didnt look pretty at the start but somehow I was 2 under after 3 and then hung in there and finished well.Scott has had his frustrations on this trip back to Australia, where hes planning on taking a vacation from next week. He opened with a 73 at the Australian Open in Sydney last month and finished the tournament six shots behind Jordan Spieth, who won in a playoff.At the World Cup of Golf last weekend in Melbourne, Scott and Australian teammate Marc Leishman carded a 74 in an opening round that contained just one birdie.On Thursday, Scott eagled the par-5 12th -- his third hole -- followed by a bogey at the 18th, before he turned and finished with the three birdies.A quick start and a quick finish adds up to a good score, said Scott, who won the Australian PGA Championship in 2013 and was runner-up the following year after a marathon playoff with Greg Chalmers. I was just treading water for a while ... cautious of going over the green in between clubs. You just have to be patient and it paid off.Jarrod Lyle produced the shot of the opening day with a hole-in-one on the 169-meter par-3 fifth.I wouldnt say it was the perfect shot, Lyle told the host broadcaster. It was a little bit thin but it worked out all right.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Ron Duguay Rangers Jersey . -- If 15th-ranked Purdue needs incentive to avoid a possible letdown on Friday night against Georgia State, Boilermaker point guard P.J. Thompson is ready to build a strong case against complacency.Purdue (1-1) played with great passion and effort in Monday nights 79-76 loss to reigning national champion and third-ranked Villanova in the Gavitt Tipoff Games at Mackey Arena.The Boilermakers took two 3-point shots during the final 10 seconds in a bid to force overtime, but neither shot found its mark.Now, Purdue must brace for an opponent with lots of Indiana ties.Thompson, whose half-court shot at the first-half buzzer Monday night tied the Villanova game at 39, knows Georgia State will be eager to catch the Boilermakers napping.Panthers head coach Ron Hunter, who entered his sixth season with 103 victories, was the head coach at IUPUI in downtown Indianapolis for 17 seasons and lived in the Indianapolis Pike High School district, where his son, R.J., was a standout performer before joining his dad when Ron Hunter took the Georgia State job.R.J. Hunter plays for the Chicago Bulls and is a good friend of Thompson.Thompson grew up near the Hunter residence and was friendly with the Hunter family, although Thompson attended Indianapolis Brebeuf Jesuit High School.Ive always admired R.J, and knowing coach Hunter, he will have his team ready to play Friday night, Thompson said Wednesday. Coach Hunter likes to change defenses a lot, so its a huge game for them, and a huge game for us.We need to bring the same kind of intensity against Georgia State as we brought against Villanova. I was talking to (assistant) coach (Kenneth) Lowe after the Villanova game, and he told me that if we bring that intensity every night, we wont lose many games.Purdue knows that Georgia States leading scorer -- 6-foot-8 senior forward Jeremy Hollowell -- will play with lots of intensity. Hollowell, who played high school basketball at Indianapolis Lawrence Central, was recruited by Purdue coach Matt Painter but ended up picking Indiana.Hollowell transferred to Georgia State and is averaging 21.5 points and five rebounds.Purdue forward Vince Edwards, who had 10 points, four rebounds and eight assists in Mondays loss to Villanova, believes Georgia State will encounter a Boilermaker team that is eager to play after its performance against the 2016 national champions.We are excited about where we are now and how we can keep building, Edwards said. There really is no ceiling as to where this team can go.We had some miscommunication on ball screens and some other mistakes against Villanova, but they are little things that we can correct. Thats one of the reasons we are excited to get right back out there and play Georgia State.Georgia States primary task will be coping with Purdues 7-2 junior center Isaac Haas and 6-8 sophomore power forward Caleb Swanigan.Haas is averaging 22 points and 4.5 rebounds, and Swanigan is averaging 21.5 points and 14 rebounds. Haas has made 17 of 21 shots from the field, and Swanigan has made 15 of 26. Tanner Glass Rangers Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. J.T.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Two American Olympic swimmers landed in Miami on Friday morning after being pulled off a plane a day earlier to testify about an alleged robbery at the Rio Olympics that Brazilian police later deemed erroneous. Curt Schilling Diamondbacks Jersey .The lawyer for a third U.S. swimmer said he would make a $10,800 payment and leave Brazil later in the day.The drama surrounding the alleged robbery of American swimmers -- and their ever-changing descriptions of it -- has shocked and deeply angered Brazilians, who said it cast a false negative shadow on their city and their Olympics. The story has also dominated Olympic headlines, overshadowing the worthy accomplishments of athletes who had trained for years just to get to Rio and set records during their performances at these Olympics.The rapid-fire developments early Friday came hours after police announced that Ryan Lochte and three of his teammates had not been held at gunpoint after a night of partying, as Lochte claimed. Instead, Brazilian police said the men, while intoxicated, vandalized a gas station bathroom and were questioned by armed guards before they paid for the damage and left.The saga has been an embarrassment for the U.S. Olympic team, which has otherwise dominated the games. It also deeply wounded a country eager to prove it could host the first Games in Latin America despite concerns it could not keep athletes and spectators safe from rampant street crime.No robbery was committed against these athletes. They were not victims of the crimes they claimed, civil police chief Fernando Veloso said during a news conference.As two of the swimmers, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, were whisked through airport security and onto a plane home Thursday night from Rio de Janeiro, their attorney insisted they had nothing to do with Lochtes story. Lochte himself left the country earlier this week.Bentz and Conger, who arrived at Miami International Airport around 6:30 a.m. on Friday, were heard only as witnesses. This has to be made very, very clear, lawyer Sergio Riera told The Associated Press. They did not make any untruthful testimony. They did not lie in their statements.A lawyer for another swimmer, James Feigen, said early Friday that the athlete had reached an agreement with a judge in which he planned to donate 35,000 Brazilian reals ($10,800) to an institution and leave the country later in the day.Attorney Breno Melaragno said under the agreement, Feigen will make the donation, get his passport back and depart.Melaragno did not specify where the money will go, but his use of the term institution can be taken to mean a charity. He said that under Brazilian law, a donation can be made to avoid criminal prosecution for minor offenses, but he did not say which charge was being contemplated.Although police appear mostly finished with their probe, the case may be far from settled. Police have said they are considering charges of falsely reporting a crime and destruction of property, both of which can carry up to six months in jail or a fine.Lochtes attorney has insisted the story wasnt made up -- but neither he nor Lochte commented on the police account after it unfolded.The saga began when Lochte said he, Conger, Bentz and Feigen were held at gunpoint and robbed several hours after the last Olympic swimming races ended. That claim began to unravel when police said that investigators could not find evidence to substantiate it.Then security video reviewed by police confirmed that the athletes vandalized parts of the gas station, leading to an encounter with station employees.The video shows one of the swimmers pulling a sign off a wall and dropping it onto the ground. A gas station worker arrives, and other workers inspect the damage. Veloso said the swimmers broke a door, a soap dispenser and a mirror.The swimmers eventually talk with station workers, and their cab leaves. In another sequence, the swimmers appear to briefly raise their hands while talking to someone and sit down on a curb.After a few minutes, the swimmers stand up and appear to exchange something -- perhaps cash, as police said -- with one of the men.The footage doesnt show a weapon, but a police official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing said two guards pointed guns at the swimmers. Veloso said the guards did not use excessive force and would have been justified in drawing their weapons because the athletes were conducting themselves in a violent way.A station employee called police, and the guards and employees tried to get the swimmers and the taxi driver to stay until authorities arrived, some even offering to help interpret between English and Portuguese, Veloso said. But he said the athletes wanted to leave, so they paid 100 Brazilian reals (about US $33) and $20 in U.S. currency and left.Police said the swimmers had been unable to provide key details in early interviews, saying they had been intoxicated. The police official said officers grew suspicious when security video showed the swimmers returning to the athletes village wearing watches, which would have likely been taken in a robbery.Bentz and Conger told police that they felt Lochte had lied about the situation in media interviews, according to text of the statements released by Rio police.We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing just a police badge and they pulled us over, Lochte told NBCs Today the morning after the incident. They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground -- they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like we didnt do anything wrong, so -- Im not getting down on the ground.And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, Get down, and I put my hands up, I was like whatever. He took our money, he took my wallet -- he left my cellphone, he left my credentials.The debacle prompted both wild speculation and social media mockery, which quickly turned to scorn after the official account went public. #LochteGate trended on Twitter, with users sharing video footage and posting comments about white privilege and rude Americans.David Fleischer, a political scientist at the University of Brasilia, said the incident touched a nerve in Brazil because of the countrys history and cases of people committing crimes while impersonating police.The story did have some sense of validity, but it didnt bear out and it made them look bad worldwide, he said.That outrage was evident Thursday, as onlookers shouted liars and shameful at Bentz and Conger as they left a police station where they gave statements.Although Lochte has medaled often, his accomplishments have long been overshadowed by those of teammate Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history. Lochte, a 12-time medalist, won a gold in Rio in a relay race alongside Phelps.Lochte and the other swimmers could face sanctions from USA Swimming, including fines or suspension. The group, as well as Olympic officials, publicly expressed disappointment and said they would further examine the matter.We apologize to our hosts in Rio and the people of Brazil for this distracting ordeal in the midst of what should rightly be a celebration of excellence, the U.S. Olympic Committee said.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Arizona Diamondbacks Gregor Blanco Jersey . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour.

The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. 1. The Cowboys without Johnathan Thurston.Weve the Cowboys emerge this year as premiership threats again and they made a great statement against the Bulldogs last week but I am interested to see how they go without Johnathan Thurston.He generally makes the plays, comes up with the kicks and opposition teams that come up against the Cowboys with JT in it are probably a little bit scared so I think Thurston missing is obviously a huge loss for North Queensland.I think Jake Granville will have to do more running but Michael Morgan will now be the key playmaker so in theory, wherever he is, that is where the ball is going to go so itll be interesting to see if there is any change or whether the Cowboys just continue to roll on.There used to be a time that if Thurston was out then the Cowboys couldnt win but they have matured into a different side now and are the complete package.I think well see the forwards step up - Matt Scott, James Tamou and Jason Taumololo will be thinking the result hinges on them but I get the impression we wont see the perfect execution of set plays and kicks the Cowboys enjoy with JT.?If the Cowboys are to win - theyll win it from a different area and not in the halves.2. Tuimoala Lolohea finally gets the Warriors No.1 jumper back.I am amazed how he doesnt get a starting spot week in, week out. The Warriors were on a winning streak when he was starring at five-eighth or the fullback.He hasnt started for a number of weeks and the Warriors havent won a game of football for a number of weeks, the coach Andrew McFadden has his job on the line and I think the fact that Tuimoala Lolohea is in the side now makes me fell confident about the Warriors.When he played a number of weeks ago he got Man of the Match and Shaun Johnson also looked soo happy playing with him. Arizona Diamondbacks T-shirts. I think Lolohea is the shining light for that Warriors football side.Lolohea is a star in the making, a young kid, a fullback, a five-eighth and he just offers so much difference and he can come up with match-winning plays and has that little bit of X-factor that many other footy players dont have.The Warriors need to be careful because this is why kids leave footy clubs; because they feel like they arent being treated with respect and in the end they go somewhere where they feel wanted.3. NRL Retro Round reminds me of my childhood.I dont know how many players that wouldve been thinking about wearing the old shoulder pads, kicking off sand or just going back to the loose fitting jerseys or even growing a moustache or a mullet but itll be interesting to see if any players participate in the Retro Round.Weve seen a number of old jerseys over the past week in promotion of it reminds me of being a kid; the old North Sydney jersey, the big cotton jumpers - loose fitting, not tight fitting - its brought back some great memories of my childhood.Some of those images of those players in the 70s and 80s make me think back to being a kids when I thought that was the norm and now Im an adult I laugh at some of the fashions and traditions that we had.I believe Graeme Hughes is also doing the commentary of the Sunday afternoon game at Brookvale which is a great initiative and nice to see everyone getting behind it.The fans of our game cover a lot of different age groups and when I was a kid 20 or 30 years ago when we thought nothing of some of those images we are seeing now but these days its hilarious.

CLEVELAND -- The last time the baseball world caught a glimpse of Trevor Bauers mangled pinkie finger on his right hand, it was grotesquely dripping blood onto the pitching rubber in Toronto during the AL Championship Series. Danny Rose Jersey .Unlike most horror movies, however, Bauer has no plans for a sequel.The Cleveland Indians pitcher is confident the mound will be blood free when he starts Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs. Bauer tested the finger -- notoriously hurt while he was tinkering with a drone -- during a simulated game on Monday. He wore gauze over the finger -- a no-no during an actual game -- just to see if it could withstand the pressure placed on it when Bauer grips the ball and lets it rip.When Bauer unwrapped the finger after throwing about 20 pitches, he exhaled.We took it off and it was completely white, so it was a non-issue, Bauer said.That was hardly the case in Game 3 of the ALCS, when Bauer lasted all of two outs and 21 pitches, the still fresh wound ripping open and caking Bauers jersey, pants and portions of the mound in blood. The Indians won anyway, relying on six relievers to get the final 25 outs in a 4-2 victory. Bauer is confident hell be able to carry more of a workload this time around against Chicagos Jake Arrieta.Im prepared, said Bauer, who went 12-8 with a 4.26 ERA in the regular season. Im going to go out there and execute to the best level of my ability, and its going to be what its going to be.Arrieta showed his remarkable run to the 2015 Cy Young was no fluke, though the dominance that came to him so easily last season was much more difficult to come by this summer. Arrieta went 18-8 with a 3.10 ERA in 2016, though he struggled at times down the stretch, posting a 5.01 ERA in his final four regular season starts. Hes been OK if hardly spectacular in the playoffs, getting a no-decision in Game 3 of the Division Series against San Francisco and surrendering four runs in five innings of a Game 3 loss to the Dodgers in the NLCS.Arrietas focus will be trying to keep Clevelands running game in check. The Indians led the American League with 143 stolen bases. Opponents were safe on 23 of 26 stolen base attempts against Arrieta during the season and manager Joe Maddon is considering using Willson Contreras at catcher instead of Miguel Montero, who typically catches for Arrieta.They do run, and Willson is one of the best young throwers in the game right now, Maddon said. You have to balance out how comfortable you think Jakes going to be throwing to him versus Miggy.Contreras threw out 13 of 35 attempted base stealers during the regular season, compared to just 7 of 66 by Montero.At the end of the day, they are good as baserunners and we are good at preventing that when everything is in place, Maddon said. So we are considering that right now. Jack Wilshere Jersey .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift.

Brillante told AAP.My position is not a position you really expect to be scoring all the time, but its something I want to add to my game and definitely I think I can do that.Because if youre a midfielder who can score goals its definitely a big positive.Until the net beckons again, hes more than happy to continue making inroads in a vital buut largely unsung role.

SAN DIEGO -- Kicker Josh Lambo apologized to fans for laughing with Oaklands Sebastian Janikowski moments after the Chargers latest pratfall. Blake Comeau Jersey .Many fans expressed displeasure on social media after Lambo was seen laughing with the Oakland kicker after the Raiders 34-31 victory Sunday. Lambo was set to attempt a tying field goal with 2:07 left when rookie holder Drew Kaser mishandled the snap.I think it was a misinterpretation of what happened. Obviously I was as devastated as anybody about the loss, Lambo said Tuesday. No one enjoys losing I certainly dont take it lightly.Lambo said he understands how it was perceived as a bad look that he was seen laughing right after the gut-wrenching loss, and that hes spoken with teammates and coaches.Janikowski is in his 17th season, Lambo in his second.In the kicking world, hes a superstar. Hes a rock star, Lambo said. Hes a guy I look up to, a guy I consider a growing friend. We had a word, we had a laugh. Were people. The work day was over and he said something funny and when Sebastian Janikowski says something funny to you, you laugh.The Chargers (1-4) lost their 10th straight AFC West game going back to 2014. Theyve lost 17 of their last 22 overall and 10 of 11 road games.Up next is Thursday nights home game against five-time defending division champion Denver.The Chargers will have a new holder for placements, although Kaser will continue to punt.

thought cocaine was 'gum'

She's a naughty girl, but does she have a cocaine habit? That's a hell to the no from Paris Hilton, who claims the purse in which the drugs were found didn't belong to her.Las Vegas police pulled over the car she was in just before midnight, after an officer smelled marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, Cy Waits, on the Vegas Strip.According to CBS News, the police searched the vehicle and found cocaine in Paris' purse.Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin told the Associated Press: "Officers noticed a vehicle leaving a smoke trail of a controlled substance [and] made a stop based on that."The heirhead was then arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine, and booked into the Clark County detention center, according to ABC News. She was later released on bail.Hilton's boyfriend, Waits, was also arrested on misdemeanor suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.But officer, it's not mine!And just like she did following her marijuana arrest in South Africa last month, Hilton opted for "the drugs weren't mine" defence again. Sources tell TMZ she initially claimed the cocaine laced purse was not hers. But she's now singing a different tune.Hilton now reportedly admits the purse was hers, but the drugs weren't. She claims she recently loaned her purse to a pal, but didn't check its contents upon replica bvlgari mens necklace its return."I had no idea the cocaine was there. I swear on my life," she supposedly told pals, while allegedly screaming that the whole thing "could be a bvlgari jewelry replica setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am."The lowdown: Naughty Hilton's cocaine bustAccording to the police report (pdf), here's what went down. Cops pulled over the 2009 Cadillac Escalade carrying Hilton and boyfriend Cy Waits after detecting "the strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle." Waits, who was driving, failed a series of field sobriety tests. Hilton was taken into the nearby Wynn Las Vegas hotel "at her request," where she was placed in a holding room. At the hotel, Hilton told the cop she needed lip balm so the cop handed her said purse: "As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand." Inside the purse was a "broken tablet of replica bulgari b.zero1 pendant rose gold Albuterol" a prescription medication used to control wheezing. And cops say they found Zig Zag wrappers commonly used to roll joints. When police asked Hilton whose cocaine it was, "she said she had not seen it but now thought it was gum." Subsequent tests confirmed that it contained 0.8 grams of cocaine.So what does it all mean? She's in deep caca.Reports now claim Hilton has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. The drug charge carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison if convicted. She could also get fined up to US$5,000 (NZ$7,000).The Las Vegas District Attorney's Office is reportedly set to file the case today.Hope you've got yourself a decent lawyer, Hilton. You're gonna need it.On Saturday, Hilton's lawyer said the "matter will be dealt with in the courts, not in the media, and I encourage people replica bvlgari necklace for women not to rush to judgment until all of the facts have been dealt with in a court of law."

OECD's tax overhaul plans put 'double Irish' in spotlight

Both the scope and the buy imitation bvlgari gold necklace force of the OECD proposals to overhaul global business tax rules herald change to the contested Irish regime. At issue now is the magnitude of the eventual change and its timing.

In downtown Paris yesterday, in the glassy headquarters of the OECD, its chief ngel Gurra described the campaign to eradicate aggressive avoidance by big companies as a moral drive to ensure fair play.

"These practices erode the integrity of our tax systems, damage the capabilities of our governments, diminish the growth potential of our economies and corrode the trust of our citizens in the institutions that we created in the past 100 years," he told reporters.

Deprived of resources "Tax evasion and avoidance have been depriving our governments of precious resources for decades now. In the past years, our governments have been struggling to find the resources to jumpstart growth, to exit the crisis and to promote more and better jobs, while base replica bvlgari b zero1 necklace erosion and profit shifting [Beps] was going on and weakened these efforts."

In the line of fire are schemes firms use to ensure they pay as little tax on their profit as they can get away with, be it in EU countries such as Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, or in secretive havens where there is nothing of substance going on in a business sense, little or no tax is paid and no questions are asked.

It is a given that this is acutely sensitive for Ireland, which has suffered reputational damage over Google's "double Irish" arrangement and Apple's controversial tax strategy.

Although successive Irish governments have been pressurised on this front, they each managed to defend the 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate. In Government circles right now, however, there is a growing sense that time is running out for schemes such as the "double Irish". Debate persists as to whether Minister for Finance Michael Noonan moves in the budget next month or waits until later. This, however, is a matter of timing. The trick is to unwind the most egregious measures without dimming Ireland's lustre as a first rate European location for inward investment. Easy to say, but difficult to do.

Alive to political pressure The case is made, however, that global business is alive to the political pressure and sees merit in taking itself out of damaging headlines over tax. In Dublin and in the OECD, indeed, the argument is replica bvlgari jewelry necklaces also advanced that opportunities will open up for countries with well developed inward investment systems if firms move away from disreputable havens.

The OECD plan has its origins in political concern that multinationals are not paying enough tax. It was amid disquiet at enormous public bailouts of the global banking system and news that some big name consumer brands were paying next to no tax on profits that the question crept to the top of the agenda.

US president Barack Obama was present at the Group of Eight summit at Lough Erne last year when global leaders directed the OECD to develop proposals.

Confront the excesses The package unveiled yesterday is not binding on governments but it embraces measures to confront the excesses of exotic instruments such as hybrid mismatch arrangements and the abuse of tax treaties. There are proposals dealing with the transfer pricing of intangible assets and measures, which would oblige companies to make public reports on a country by country basis on distribution of income and tax payments.

While the operational detail of individual schemes can be fiendishly complex, the basic idea is to move a company's liability for tax on profits into jurisdictions in which the tax charges are very, very low.

Still, it remains to be seen whether the combined might of global commerce will bend to political will. Previous efforts have run aground. Obama had plenty to say about corporate tax reform when he took office in 2009, but little happened.

The geopolitical situation has changed since the Co Fermanagh summit and priorities have shifted. The G8 has become the G7 again following Vladimir Putin's ejection over Ukraine. The Islamic State rampage in Iraq is a further cause of concern to leaders who might otherwise be transfixed by taxation.

Still, Gurra made it clear that OECD members and members of the Group of 20 industrialised and developing nations will relica bvlgari necklace seek a deal next January on a mandate to negotiate a binding multilateral plan.

Although countries such as Ireland are under pressure to take unilateral action, it is only through collective action that the global community can win the battle.
