Gullit insisted that Liverpool need to improve for the final

first_imgRuud Gullit believes that Liverpool simply can’t allow playing like they did in the semifinals against AS Roma – otherwise, they can receive a harsh lesson by Real Madrid as they are far more experienced.Jürgen Klopp’s men will have to play more focused and be better defensively if they want to win the famous trophy – because Real Madrid will be able to punish every single one of their mistakes.The Dutch legend spoke about Liverpool’s chances as he said, according to Team Talk:“If Liverpool are going to play like they did in Rome, they are not going to win the Champions League.”divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It is fantastic to have Liverpool in the final, but everyone must realise that they only scraped through at the end.”“I have read the verdict of some former Liverpool stars and they are euphoric. They are not impressed by Real Madrid. They think Liverpool have a serious chance of winning.”“But the players and coaching staff of Real will have watched Liverpool’s second game against Roma. And I think they will have drawn the strong conclusion that they have more of a chance to win the final than Liverpool.”last_img read more

Frenkie de Jong wouldve loved Lionel Messis number 10

first_imgDutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong joked with the idea of possibly getting Lionel Messi’s number ’10’ jersey at Barcelona when he arrived next summer.The biggest news in Spanish football for the last couple of days has been Frenkie de Jongs transfer to FC Barcelona, a deal that was completed last Wednesday and will have the Dutchman playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi.The Argentine forward was reportedly crazy for getting the Ajax midfielder signed, which is something that motivated De Jong for making his final decision.The player is set to start his new journey at FC Barcelona next summer, he will finish the current season at Ajax in all competitions and then report to the manager on July 1st.During an interview with De Telegraaf, Frenkie opened up about the number he could use at the Catalan club and joked with the idea of possibly taking it away from Lionel Messi.But all kidding aside, the player revealed that he still hasn’t decided which number he will sport for the rest of his career at Barcelona and he is possibly waiting for any changes that happen by the end of the season.The Spanish giants are expected to get rid of at least one of the big players in the squad, the money right now is on Brazilian Philipe Coutinho who hasn’t lived up to the hype since he arrived from Liverpool.De Jong: “I want number 10, but I think someone already has it.”#EnjoyDeJong pic.twitter.com/3LRqsgsEz9— Penya FCB de Beirut (@PenyaFCBBeirut) January 24, 2019Another option for FC Barcelona is to sell Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic, who has come a long way since he arrived in the club from Sevilla and possibly has already fulfilled a cycle as he approaches the final stages of his career.As we all know, Ivan Rakitic sports the number ‘4’ jersey, a traditional number at FC Barcelona that have worn historic players like Ronald Koeman or Pep Guardiola.It would be only fitting for Frenkie to follow in those footsteps once Ivan Rakitic decides to call it quits, this scenario is more plausible than the jokes De Jong made in regards to taking Lionel Messi’s number ’10’.Because as we all know by now, the Argentine will wear this jersey until the day he decides to retire. Hopefully for all football fans, that day won’t come any time soon.But that number ‘4’ jersey does seem like the most likely path for the Dutch midfielder, he fits the position and has what it takes to become the next great FC Barcelona player.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).But even Ivan Rakitic’s exit from the club is not a sure thing, mainly because manager Ernesto Valverde has repeatedly said that the Croatian midfielder is a key player in his squad.Esto es Frenkie de Jong… 😍#FrenkieFuturo pic.twitter.com/L8qGei6Bp5— AFC Ajax (@AFCAjax) January 23, 2019Frenkie de Joong has been talking to several news outlets during these past two days, but the very first interview he offered was to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf because they were the ones with the inside information and the very first outlet that spoke about the specifics of De Jong’s transfer from Ajax to Barcelona.The player granted an interview where he discussed several topics, but the subject of the number he will wear was specifically addressed.“No, there is still no number on that jersey. That will come later. Yes, I would obviously love wearing the number ’10’ jersey but I think someone is already playing with it at Camp Nou,” he laughed.“Lionel Messi, I think. That number won’t be mine. He is the best and I believe it’s an honor to be his teammate.”“Right now, I really can’t picture myself next to him on a football pitch. However, I won’t be some kind of tourist who only enjoys Messi play.”“I am doing everything I can in order to become a fundamental player for FC Barcelona,” he concluded.El pequeño Frenkie de Jong, la nueva perla del Barcelona. pic.twitter.com/YHv7aE3rwY— El Mister (@el_Mister8) January 24, 2019Which number would you prefer Frenkie de Jong could wear at FC Barcelona?

Royal Robinson knocks PDM Budget allocations says priorities wrong

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 20, 2017 – Grand Turk – Opposition Member Royal Robinson knocked the PDM government’s first budget, calling it lip service to the Turks and Caicos people.In his contribution to the Budget Debate, Robinson questioned the amounts of $450,000 set aside for the Health sector, an amount he says should have been atleast $600,000. He added that Health issues such as diabetes needed serious attention, and that more was needed in the combat against mosquito borne diseases. Robinson told the house that the TCI people got a six for a nine in voting them into government. He added that the Agriculture sector, also received lowered amounts than previous budget allocations.The PNP member went on to dismiss the Government’s 12 Point Crime plan, calling on the PDM to provide solutions to the current crime situation.  Meanwhile, Robinson called out the Premier on her description of him as the “Destructive New, new PNP”, saying he was only doing the job his party had put him there to do, and that he was far from destructive.#Story by: Kimberly Ramkhalawan            #MagneticMedianews#prioritieswrongsaysroyalrobinson#RobinsonknocksPDMbudget Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #prioritieswrongsaysroyalrobinson, #RobinsonknocksPDMbudgetlast_img read more

JAMAICA Persons Living in SugarCane Areas More Susceptible to Leptospirosis

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp #Jamaica, February 26, 2018 – Montego Bay – Health, Promotion and Education Officer at the Westmoreland Health Department, Gerald Miller, says persons living in sugar-cane areas will always be more susceptible to leptospirosis.Mr. Miller, who was speaking at a Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’, at the agency’s Montego Bay Regional Office on February 20, added that while this should not be viewed as any cause for serious alarm, it is always a good thing for the public to be sufficiently informed.“We had some suspected cases in Westmoreland last year, which prompted us to have a stakeholders meeting in the parish.  What we gleaned from the meeting is that the suspected cases were from the areas where sugar cane is concentrated,” he noted.Mr. Miller said they decided to use a multipronged approach, including a progressive public outreach programme, to inform persons about the disease.“We have been doing our ongoing sessions with the cane farmers.  There are eight groups of cane farmers in Westmoreland, and as you know, Westmoreland is a large sugar-cane-growing area,” he pointed out.Mr. Miller said even though the sugar industry in the parish is not as busy as it used to be, “we still have areas where sugar cane is grown on a large scale”.  He added that the rats tend to flee to residential homes during the time of harvest, especially when fire is brought into play in the cane fields.“We have to be constantly sharing with the community the dangers of rats and the leptospirosis bacteria.  We are going to roll out a sensitization programme into these communities.  We don’t want a disease that can be treated to be killing persons in the 21st century, so we need to give persons the information to protect themselves,” Mr. Miller said.Mr. Miller added that while the number of cases of leptospirosis is still within endemic levels, there still needs to be protective measures in place to keep the rats at bay.“It is not just the sugar-cane areas.  Residents across the island should proactively be practising measures that will control the rat population,” he said.For his part, Chief Public Health Inspector for Westmoreland, Steve Morris, said food safety is the number-one priority programme that the Ministry of Health has across the island, noting that “this is also very important” in the fight against leptospirosis.“In terms of rodent infestation, action is taken immediately to ensure the public is protected.  Establishments that serve a lot of persons are monitored a lot more, seeing that they pose the most risks,” he said.Leptospirosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria that could lead to possible fatal infection of the kidney, liver, brain, lung or heart.  While it cannot be spread from human to human, it can be contracted through exposure to the urine or body fluids of infected animals.

Man found guilty of felony assault for punching police officer in Chicano

first_img Posted: August 3, 2018 Man found guilty of felony assault for punching police officer in Chicano Park Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, August 3, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A man who punched a San Diego police officer in the face after the officer and his partner ordered him to stop walking in the middle of the street near a rally at Chicano Park was convicted Friday of assault and other charges.Jurors found 39-year-old Frederick Jefferson of San Diego guilty of felony assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, resisting an executive officer and a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer after one day of deliberations. The defendant faces about nine years in state prison when he is sentenced Aug. 31, said Deputy District Attorney Michael Reilly.Reilly told the jury that Jefferson “wanted to play by his own rules” when Officers Matthew Ruggiero and Justin Tennebaum tried to get him to walk on the sidewalk on Logan Avenue the morning of Feb. 3, close to where two rival groups were rallying in the park.The prosecutor said the officers had every right to stop and enforce traffic laws against jaywalking and to use force when Jefferson reacted violently to their requests to move onto the sidewalk.“Get out of the street,” one of the officers said to Jefferson. “C’mon dude, stop! You’re gonna get a ticket, or go to jail!”The prosecutor said Jefferson reacted suddenly and violently when the officers got out of their patrol car and tried to grab the defendant’s arms and move him out of the street.“Don’t you put your hands on me,” Jefferson is heard saying on one of the officer’s body-worn cameras.Reilly said Ruggiero pulled out his police baton but didn’t use it on Jefferson until the defendant started swinging at him.Ruggiero was hit in the face two or three times and suffered a fractured nose and cheek bone.Jefferson struggled with at least five other officers before being taken to the ground and handcuffed.The defendant testified that he was minding his own business, walking toward what he thought was a parade, when the officers grabbed his arms. Jefferson told the jury he acted in self-defense. last_img read more

Local Entrepreneurs Display Talents Tomorrow For Lemonade Day

first_imgJohna Beech, President of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce: “When you are cruising out and about on Saturday and you see a kid with a lemonade stand, stop by and buy one or two cups.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享For the past seven years, local Chambers of Commerce have been helping young residents learn the basics of entrepreneurship through Lemonade Day. This year’s event is scheduled June 9. Local children have participated in the Chambers’ building and finance workshops, learning how to create a product and a store and how to use the proceeds. Andrew Heuiser, Events & Programs Coordinator for the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce: “Lemonade Day is an education program for youth in the community and they learn how to start up their own business , run it, and make profits, and do what they want to with those.” Lemonade Day is a free, experimental learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand.  Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some. Lemonade stands will be popping up on Saturday in front of many established local businesses in the Soldotna-Kenai area.last_img read more

IIF 2016 to Feature Dialogue with OEA Director Patrick OBrien

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Patrick O’Brien, director of DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), will discuss defense communities’ leading concerns at Installation Innovation Forum (IIF) 2016, scheduled for Feb. 29-March 2 in Charleston, S.C., including the uncertainty surrounding future defense spending and the prospect of further downsizing at installations around the country.As the Pentagon enters the fourth year of fiscal constraints imposed under the 2011 Budget Control Act, the Army remains on a path to shrink its active-duty end strength to 450,000 soldiers by the end of fiscal 2018 — down from a force of 570,000 as recently as FY 2013 — leaving many communities anxious about the future. At the same time, the level of excess capacity is rising throughout DOD, particularly at Army and Air Force installations. The strict spending caps also have forced the services to limit spending on facilities sustainment, undercutting installations’ military value.During an “Innovation Dialogue” at IIF 2016, O’Brien will help defense communities understand how the recently released FY 2017 budget request could affect them, and provide insight into the impact of future budget trends. He also will discuss OEA’s ongoing response to changes in defense spending and talk about the agency’s newest initiatives to support communities. O’Brien will highlight the best ways communities can prepare for possible downsizing and other potential defense actions.The session, which will be moderated by ADC CEO Tim Ford, will be held Wednesday morning on March 2. More details about the conference program and location are available on the conference website.last_img read more

City Seeks to Remedy Vote Allowing Business to Open under Takeoff Path

first_imgThe Norfolk (Va.) City Council is having second thoughts about its vote last month to allow a business located under the takeoff path of Naval Station Norfolk Chambers Field to open after the decision was harshly criticized by John Harvey Jr., Virginia’s secretary of veterans and defense affairs. Dan Cohen AUTHOR “The last thing that needs to happen now is for any city or county in the commonwealth of Virginia to signal publicly, ‘OK, we’re just not going to play by the rules here that we agreed to,’” said Harvey, a retired four-star admiral. The commander of Naval Station Norfolk had voiced opposition to the business application prior to the city council’s vote. The city manager told the paper that staff have spoken to the owner, who is “open to a dialogue with us that results in a win-win for both her and the city.” In a March 10 letter to Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim, Harvey said the city’s decision jeopardizes the future of the airfield, formerly known as Norfolk Naval Air Station, reported the Virginian-Pilot. He warned DOD could view the vote as an indication the city does not support the naval station, which possibly could lead to a recommendation to close the airfield. In response to Harvey’s criticism, the city council agreed to see whether the business owner will agree to move to a new location, with city assistance. The council cannot legally undo its approval, the city attorney ruled. “We have no ability to do anything other than to ask or to try,” Fraim said. The council made an exception to a city policy limiting the use of property in the accident potential zones surrounding military airfields because city officials failed to inform the prospective owner of the banquet hall about the policy for more than two months after she applied for permits. The site of the banquet hall is about one-and-a-half miles from the east end of the runway at Chambers Field, putting it in Accident Potential Zone 2.last_img read more

Python snake catcher bags 18foot monster danger noodle

first_img 0 Post a comment Animals behaving badly amuse the internet Enlarge ImageSnakes alive, this python is a big ‘un. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission “Problem pythons” sounds like a great band name, but it’s a real issue for some areas of Florida. Burmese pythons are breeding and spreading across wildlife areas, including the fragile Everglades. The state now pays trappers to round up the large snakes, and one particular hunter just caught a doozy. Trapper John Hammond grabbed an 18-foot-long (5.5-meter) python this past weekend. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) shared a startling photo of his trophy on Facebook earlier this week. “During cooler months, people are more likely to see pythons during the day,” the commission wrote. Hammond, officially known as a Python Removal Contractor, snagged the snake in the Everglades Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area near Miami. Burmese pythons can reach 20 feet (6 meters) in size. More nope-ropes The story didn’t end happily for the snake. FWC says pythons caught for the program are humanely euthanized. Hammond told Fox 35 he would use the snake’s hide after skinning it. The news station also reports the snake just set a new record for largest python caught as part of Florida’s removal program. The 150-pounder beat out a 17-foot, 120-pound snake snagged in November. It’s sad to see what happens to these majestic animals, but Florida is trying to control the invasive species, which is taking a serious toll on native wildlife.  The state even offers Python Patrol, a training program for private citizens that teaches them how to identify, capture and humanely kill the predators. Hundreds of the snakes have been removed since Florida started its python-control efforts.

Teslas Models S and X wont be seeing big changes anytime soon

first_img Tesla Electric Cars Car Industry Enlarge ImageThe Model S looks an awful lot now like it did when it debuted in 2012, but that’s not a bad thing. Tim Stevens/Roadshow Most manufacturers would be freaking out about the future if it had models in its lineup that were mostly the same now as they were when they debuted seven years ago. Not Tesla, though. Despite many minor changes and a few technical updates, the Model S of 2019 is not wildly different from the one that debuted way back in 2012. That has led people to wonder if the Model S and its slightly newer sibling, Model X, will be getting a redo anytime soon.The answer to that, according to the Big T’s CEO Elon Musk, is no. The recent mechanical refresh to S and X that we saw a few months ago is the extent of what we can expect for the future. On the one hand, that sounds crazy, but on the other, it’s not like either model looks especially dated. Now playing: Watch this: There is no “refreshed” Model X or Model S coming, only a series of minor ongoing changes. Most significant change in past few years was to use high efficiency Model 3 rear drive unit as S/X front drive unit. That went into production 3 months ago.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 9, 2019 2 Musk’s decision makes sense from a business standpoint, too. Why would a company that is so resource-hungry as it is divert funding and personnel away from new models like Y or the Tesla truck to retool relatively low-volume flagship models?Now, Models S and X will continue to get minor updates, both in hardware and of course through software, but Musk also states that we shouldn’t expect even an interior re-do, despite the move away from the S and X’s more traditional interior layout to the more minimal style used on 3 and Y.In the long-term, it’s not clear how S and X fit into Tesla’s grand plans with all the robotaxis and semi-trucks and God knows what else Elon is cooking up. In the meantime though, they won’t be going anywhere, and if our own Tim Stevens’ recent review of the current Model S is anything to go by, that’s not a bad thing.Tesla didn’t had no further comment beyond Musk’s tweets.

Will Chinas IPO Boom Weigh on Troubled Indian Stock Markets

first_imgConcerns deepen over troubled Indian stock markets as the China’s red-hot initial public offering (IPO) heats up further. Foreign investors appear to be preparing to pull out their money from Dalal Street and invest in lucrative IPOs in China.As many as 20 Chinese companies have lined up to issue IPOs this week amounting to $483.19 billion, intensifying worries of outflows from other countries including India.Impressive post-listing performance of Chinese IPOs has created frenzy among the investor community. In the past one year, all the IPOs have generated more than 40% returns on listing.”We have heard from sell-side brokers that some of the selling in India is attributable to the fact that Chinese markets have outperformed India,” Nilesh Shah, MD, Kotak Mutual Fund, told The Economic Times.Recent controversy over Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) led to high volatility in domestic stock markets in recent trading sessions, as overseas investors aggressively sold their shares.Foreign investors have sold shares amounting to over $2 billion or nearly ₹14,000 crore in the past 15 trading sessions, NDTV Profit said.The Chinese securities regulator has been fast accelerating its nod for IPOs in a bid to cool down its skyrocketing stock market performance. Last Friday, the regulator approved a batch of IPOs for the second time in less than a month.”Regulators have said they would accelerate IPO approvals and we’re seeing it happen,” Zhang Chen, analyst at Shanghai-based Hongyi Investment, told Reuters.The Chinese authorities have been initiating many measures to curtail the speculative activity in its equity markets. Despite a sharp decline in recent sessions, the Chinese stocks still trade at multi-year highs, with a gain of 34% so far this year.The China’s Shanghai Composite Index is up 122% since January 2014, supported by increased buying by the retail investors.Will China’s IPOs Attract FIIs in India?Analysts see limited scope for foreign investors, who have their holding in Indian equities, to participate in the forthcoming $200 billion IPOs in China. The total share holdings of overseas investors in India stand at over $300 billion, so offloading a part of their holdings may offer a little liquidity to subscriber for Chinese IPOs.There is no evidence of ‘any large-scale’ selling of shares by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) so far although the Chinese IPO boom has started a few months back. Recent sell-off in Indian stock markets is largely due to uncertainty over retrospective tax and weak corporate earnings, Business Standard reported.Instead, China IPOs are having an impact on its own markets, with the benchmark index declining by around 10% in recent sessions. Investors are selling their shares to buy IPOs.However, with the Chinese equity market outperforming India’s, many global money managers are reshuffling their portfolios to include Chinese stocks.last_img read more

For Best Debutant Sara Ali Khan this is the most important thing

first_imgSara Ali KhanPR HandoutThe promising actress who emerged as the best debutant with her first film, Sara Ali Khan is also one of the most sought after actresses currently where her films have charted smashing records at the box office. With the beginning of a successful acting journey, this is what Sara has to say about what the most important thing is for her.With many things happening simultaneously, the most important thing for Sara for her career as an actor is conviction. Talking about it Sara shares, “I look at my career as a new chapter and it gets extremely important to act. I think it’s extremely important to do good work and it’s extremely important to remember that fame. So one thing that I look for sure is conviction. Either in my role or in my director, or in my script, or in the world, there needs to be a conviction.”The actress seems to be grounded even after seeing success early in her career, owing to the values she has inculcated throughout her life and a testimony of the same is the gestures of the actress at various instances.
