Tuchel: Di Maria is like a gift

first_imgThomas Tuchel says it is “a gift” working with Angel Di Maria following Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 Ligue 1 victory over Nice.Neymar’s brace and a goal from Christopher Nkunku were enough to secure an eighth successive top flight win for PSG, who are now nine points clear at the top.Neymar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting also had goals disallowed for offside, but it was Di Maria – who also hit the woodwork – who drew praise from Tuchel.

Just How Good Has Oklahoma State’s Defensive Line Been?

first_imgThe eye test (I know … ) tells me Oklahoma State’s defensive line has been awesome. Case in point right here.Reader Nicholas DeMaio pointed out that it goes beyond the eye test, too. OSU has three of the top 10 Big 12 leaders in tackles for loss per game. Here’s a look.Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 5.02.50 PMThat’s crazy, right?! Throw in what Darrion Daniels and Co. have done and a perceived weakness seems to be turning into an immense strength.“I would say they’re a little ahead of where I thought they’d be,” said Mike Gundy earlier this week about his defensive tackles. “Vince is playing good and Motekiai is giving us some good quality reps. I like what Eric Davis has done. He hasn’t turned the corner but he’s peeking around it. Darrion Daniels has exceeded my expectations as to what a true freshman could do at that position at this level.”Gundy isn’t the only one who’s taken notice either. Texas running back Johnathan Gray talked about OSU’s line earlier this week.“OSU is great competition, great team, great school,” said Gray. “They’re not going to come in here lightly. We know that. We know we have to go to work.“Their defense is a strong defense this year. Their front is amazing. We have to go in with a game plan, go in there like dogs.”Hopefully, the Oklahoma State front continues to as well.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Firmino looking to help fill Coutinho void

first_imgUEFA Champions League Firmino looking to help fill Coutinho void for Liverpool Allen Ramsey Last updated 1 year ago 09:08 2/14/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) UEFA Champions League Porto v Liverpool Porto Liverpool Philippe Coutinho Videos The Brazilian striker knows the loss of his countryman to Barcelona was a blow, but believes he can help fill the creative gap Roberto Firmino wants to help fill the creative gap that was left in Liverpool’s side by the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona. Coutinho left the Reds for the Spanish giants in January in a €160 million deal , leaving a void in the midfield for Jurgen Klopp’s side. But countryman Firmino is looking to help fill that space, believing that he can help other Liverpool stars, like Mohamed Salah, pour in the goals despite the loss of the 25-year-old. Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Firmino himself has been in fine form of late, with four goals in his last six outings and 20 goals in his last 36 appearances for the Reds. Liverpool face a tough last 16 tie in the form of Portuguese side Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday, and Firmino is looking forward to the added load on his shoulders ahead of the European clash. “Coutinho is a great player and of course when he left that put a greater responsibility on everyone else to perform without him,” Firmino told a press conference.”It is our job to deal with greater responsibility and I think we have done that so far.”I’m going to do what I can to help [Salah] score goals and to help all the team. I also want to help myself to make a good season.”I don’t know if Porto are going to be afraid but we are going to make their life difficult and make them suffer.”Firmino SalahWhile Firmino has taken on a starring role for Liverpool in recent weeks, manager Jurgen Klopp doesn’t believe his Brazilian star is doing anything he hasn’t done in the past, only that he is not being overshadowed by his former team-mate. “When I came in I said immediately that I was happy Roberto was here,” Klopp told reporters.”I don’t think he has stepped up recently but maybe it is more obvious because his situations are not overshadowed by Phil Coutinho’s situations. That’s how it is.”He’s a very important player and he doesn’t always have to be the standout player. As often as he can be, that’s good.”Is he underrated? I don’t think so, not anymore. I don’t know what other people think about Roberto Firmino. But people with a football brain judge him right.”Liverpool and Porto will play the first leg of their round of 16 tie on Wednesday at Estadio do Dragao, with the return leg set for March 6 at Anfield.last_img read more

New Music Preview: Blood Orange, Ohmme, and Wild Nothing

first_img The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Editors’ Recommendations 16 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now The Absolute Worst Movies to Watch with a Date August has plenty of new album releases in store, but there are three particular records coming out this month that we can’t wait to hear.Blood Orange – Negro SwanBlood Orange’s fourth album, Negro Swan, comes out August 24, but the catalogue of Devonté Hynes, the artist behind Blood Orange, reaches farther back. Raised in England, Hynes started out as a teenage punk in the U.K. band Test Icicles before releasing two orchestral acoustic pop records as Lightspeed Champion. Only in 2011 did he release the first Blood Orange LP, Coastal Dreams. 2013’s Cupid Deluxe and 2016’s Freetown Sound both received critical acclaim. Rolling Stone called Freetown Sound a “masterpiece of composition, curation, and choreography [that addresses] present-day black art and experience while refusing limits at every turn,” and Pitchfork ranked Cupid Deluxe among the “100 Best Albums of the Decade (So Far)” in 2016.No music from the album accompanied the initial announcement of Negro Swan’s release date on July 19, but in the days since, Hynes has shared two songs from the record: “Charcoal Baby” and “Jewelry.”Negro Swan arrives on Friday, August 24, via Domino and is available to pre-order through Amazon, Domino Mart, and iTunes.Ohmme – PartsOhmme is a Chicago-based duo comprised of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart. Still in their 20s, Stewart and Cunningham are both classically trained musicians and established players in the Chicago music scene. The list of artists the two have collaborated with reads like a who’s who of Chicago music stars and includes Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Chance the Rapper, Whitney, and Twin Peaks.The duo plays with the tropes and stereotypes surrounding female singer-songwriters. Cunningham and Stewart present gorgeously harmonized, delicate vocals, but rather than backing up those vocals with amiable melodies, they challenge listeners with psychedelic guitar work and dynamic shifts. That’s not to say there are no melodies or hooks in Ohmme’s music. “Icon,” an early single from the duo’s forthcoming Parts LP, is undeniably catchy with the duo’s ear-catching vocals harmonies in full swing and perfect guitar riff.Parts arrives on Friday, August 24, via Joyful Noise and is available to pre-order through Amazon, iTunes, and Joyful Noise’s online store.Wild Nothing – IndigoJack Tatum has been releasing music under the moniker Wild Nothing since his critically acclaimed 2010 debut, Gemini. The act’s synth-heavy take on indie pop almost glimmers, and Indigo, its forthcoming album, looks to continue that trend. The album announcement notes that the record finds Tatum “at his most efficient, calculated, and confident after a decade of making music as Wild Nothing,” and that Indigo returns to the “fresh, transcendent sweep” of Gemini.For the creation of Indigo, Tatum worked to collapse the “man vs. machine dichotomy.” Writing pieces of songs on a multitude of instruments, he made highly detailed demos before recording the album over four days at Sunset Sound with Cam Allen (drums) and Benji Lysaght (guitar). Tatum looked to produce the album in a clear, ’80s-inspired fidelity in contrast to the tendency toward lo-fi production among his peers. “I wanted it to sound like a classic studio record … I think about how my music will age. Ideas of ‘timeless’ are going to be different — so if Indigo is not timeless then it’s at least ‘out of time.’”Indigo arrives on Friday, August 31, via Captured Tracks and is available to pre-order through Amazon, Capture Tracks’ online store, and iTunes.Did you miss on July’s releases?

School board in New Brunswick takes childrens book about scalping off the

first_imgAngel MooreAPTN NewsEmma Ward-Levi just wanted a book to read. The 10-year old Mi’kmaw girl was not expecting to find a book with the line, “I am an Indian and I will scalp you.”She knew those words were wrong, but she didn’t know what to do, so she took the book home to show her mother.Sharona Lynn Levi could not believe what her daughter had discovered at school.“I asked Emma if she understood what scalping meant. I know what it means, and I know it is used as a derogatory term.” she said.Lynn Levi contacted the school and soon people reached out from the Anglophone North School District, the New Brunswick Department of Education, and the Minister of Education.“They apologized and immediately want to find answers like you and me,” she said. “They want to know how the book slipped through and made it into the classroom.” Dominique Cardy, the Minister of Education said in a statement that the district is removing any copies and checking for any other books for inappropriate content.“Immediately upon learning of this situation the district decided to remove any copies of this book from its libraries. We asked all school districts to review any other books by this author to check for other inappropriate content.“I have spoken with Aboriginal Affairs Minister Jake Stewart who stressed the importance of ensuring such racist materials are not available in our schools. I called Chief Aaron Sock of Elsipogtog First Nation and the mother of the child who brought the book home to apologize and to explain the steps the department and the school district are taking.”“The material in this book is racist. We regret it being present in our public-school libraries,” said the statement.(Emma Ward Levi informed her mother of the book she found in the library that reference scalping)Lynn Levi wanted to know how long the book has been on the classroom shelf, and how many children have read it.The School District posted on their website a statement a zero tolerance for racism.“Racist literature is unacceptable, and the book has been removed,” said the statement.Lynn Levi said her daughter knows what is right and wrong.“I am very proud of Emma, she is not afraid to speak up. And she is ready to go back to class and talk about it,” she said.“I am happy this happened because it tells us we are not where we think we are, so we need to figure this out, there needs to be accountability so we can change it.”amoore@aptn.ca@angelharksenlast_img read more

Offseason additions have Cincinnati buzzing about Reds

Traditionally, a Cincinnati Reds offseason includes the signing of an overpriced free agent, i.e. Eric Milton or Willy Taveras, and misplaced hope for the upcoming season.Furthermore, the men of the Queen City usually attempt to fill major holes in their roster by acquiring “has-beens” and hoping that these players miraculously have career years.This offseason has been a bit different, and the upcoming season may merit a hint of optimism.The last major acquisition the Reds have made in recent memory was the Ken Griffey Jr. trade after the 1999 season. When rumors began to float around that the Reds were in the Aroldis Chapman sweepstakes, no one gave them a chance to sign the 21-year-old, left-handed Cuban and free agent pitcher armed with a 100 mph fastball.Pundits predicted Chapman would sign with one of the big-market teams such as the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets or Phillies. However, the Reds ended up on top by giving Chapman a six-year, $30.25 million contract on Jan. 12.Clearly, the Reds are taking a huge gamble. Chapman is a classic example of a pitcher with a big, live arm, but one who is also dogged by control issues. In 327 career innings for Holguin, his Cuban team, Chapman struck out 365 batters but walked 203.Coming into the offseason, the Reds had a gaping hole at shortstop. As the winter months wore on, popular opinion was that the Reds were going to spring training with Paul Janish, a slick-fielding but offensively-challenged shortstop, as the starter.Then, way out of left field, the Reds signed veteran shortstop Orlando Cabrera to a $3.02 million, one-year contract. The 35-year-old Cabrera has lost a step or two defensively, but is a significant upgrade offensively over Janish.Also, by trading outfielder Willy Taveras, who was due $4 million next year, to Oakland along with infielder Adam Rosales, the Reds opened up enough money to sign Cabrera.The last objective on the Reds’ offseason list would be bringing back outfielder Jonny Gomes. As a platoon player last year, Gomes hit 20 home runs in 281 at-bats and brought much-needed right-handed power to the lineup. Re-signing Gomes would also add experience to a young outfield that includes Chris Dickerson, Drew Stubbs and Jay Bruce.Without a doubt, the 2010 season is a make or break year for manager Dusty Baker. The Cincinnati Reds manager enters the last year of his contract having gone 74-88 and 78-84 in his first two seasons. Considering Baker was hired by General Manager Walt Jocketty’s predecessor Wayne Krivsky, it’s hard to see Baker returning if Cincinnati has another disappointing season.In Baker’s first two seasons, he has had a significantly different roster to manage each year. In 2008, the Reds still had sluggers Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn, whose personalities dominated the clubhouse. In 2009, the Reds were an extremely young team led by Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips.However, the offensive problems that have plagued the Reds for much of the past decade still ring true today. Their mantra a few years ago was to rely on the home run ball to win games. Last year, with a precocious but young ball club, the team relied on small ball. Yet, they ranked No. 11 in the National League in runs scored and No. 15 in batting average.Since the Reds did not make a big trade to acquire a power bat, Baker will fill his lineup card everyday hoping to get increased production from his young players. First baseman Joey Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips are entrenched in the three and four spots, while third baseman Scott Rolen will likely bat fifth.Baker would be wise to utilize center fielder Stubbs’ speed and Cabrera’s contact skills at the top of the lineup. The Reds have not had a legitimate table-setter since Barry Larkin, and Stubbs’ blazing speed and bunt skills have the potential to make some noise in the leadoff spot.The biggest question mark in the Reds’ line-up surrounds Bruce. After bursting onto the big league scene in 2008, the right fielder suffered a sophomore slump in 2009, batting .223 with 22 home runs and 58 RBIs. However, there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel for Bruce. He batted .326 over his last 18 games, in part due to a stance adjustment following a stint on the disabled list.The Reds’ clear strength is their pitching staff, specifically the bullpen. Closer Francisco Cordero anchors a bullpen that ranked near the top of the NL. Cordero is joined by flame-throwing right-hander Nick Masset and screw-ball lefty Daniel Ray Herrera.The first four spots in the Reds starting rotation appear to be set in stone with Bronson Arroyo, Johnny Cueto, Aaron Harang and Homer Bailey, while the fifth spot is up for grabs between a cast of characters including Matt Maloney and Micah Owings.The Reds appear to be heading in the right direction. For the most part, their young stars have taken their major league lumps. They have proven veterans looking to rebound from injury-plagued seasons. Jocketty is an aggressive GM with a track record of success.However, the fact remains the Reds have not been to the playoffs since 1995. Come August, if the Reds can stay healthy and get production from all 25 guys on the roster, they just may be able to keep Cincinnati fans focused on a pennant race instead of Bengals training camp. read more

Dana building on Brevini acquisition with mining industry orders

first_imgIn February 2017, Dana completed the acquisition of the power-transmission and fluid power businesses of Brevini Group SpA, which at the time, Aziz Aghili, President of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Technologies said “will help us to increase Dana content on construction, mining, material-handling, and other off-highway equipment.”The company has already seen success in the mining sector with the new product lines, having recently achieved the sale of two custom-made, high-torque Brevini®-brand S Series gearboxes that will be used in an apron feeder application for an unnamed government-owned mining company in South America.Dana told IM that it was selected to supply these 1,500 kNm gearboxes due to the history of the Brevini brand in supporting bulk material handling applications, as well as Dana’s ability to deliver a custom-designed product under a tight deadline with support from Dana’s Service and Assembly Center in Brazil.Dana also said it has seen synergy benefits as exemplified in the delivery of components for a North American-based manufacturer of roll compactors for the mining industry. Brevini-brand double planetary gearboxes have been supplied for this equipment since 2015, but the OEM recently decided to expand the relationship by selecting Dana to supply the GWB® 587 Series industrial driveshafts that connect the gearboxes to the electric motor.last_img read more

By Sean Murray Share326 Tweet Email1 Read: Anti-viral drugs lower risk of catching HIV for couples having unprotected sexRead: There has been a sharp rise in the number of HIV and syphilis diagnoses amongst gay men Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3110422 DUP MLA Trevor Clarke 18,841 Views 59 Comments DUP MLA Trevor Clarke Thanks to @TrevorClarkeMLA 4 huge support and frank contribution to the debate https://t.co/IIOfDnSULB— Jacquie Richardson (@CEOPositiveLife) November 29, 2016 Nov 30th 2016, 7:46 AM A NORTHERN IRISH politician has admitted that he did not know that heterosexual people could contract HIV, in a Stormont debate calling for a new awareness campaign on the virus.BBC News reports that DUP’s Trevor Clarke had previously thought that only homosexual people could contract HIV, until a charity explained the facts to him.“When I came here in 2007,” he said. “I would have dismissed the possibility that I would speak about HIV today, because I was one of those who did not understand the stigma attached to it.”Clarke, along with two DUP colleagues, proposed yesterday’s debate on a new HIV awareness campaign and increasing support for the work of the charity Positive Life, which helps people living with HIV in Northern Ireland.He argued against an amendment to the proposal put forward by People Before Profit MLA Eamonn McCann.McCann had proposed that the campaign stressed the disproportionate impact of HIV on gay and bisexual men.He said that it was foolish to believe that the stigma associated with HIV arose because heterosexual people with the condition may be thought of as being gay.McCann also referred to Ian Paisley’s “Save Ulster from Sodomy” campaign, which was launched in 1977 but failed to prevent the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Northern Ireland.“What’s wrong with sodomy anyway?” he asked.In arguing against McCann’s amendment, Clarke said: Source: Jacquie Richardson/Twitter Wednesday 30 Nov 2016, 7:46 AM I am not trying to get a rise out of Mr McCann when I say this, but I feel that his amendment, had he moved it, would have been unhelpful to people who, like me, were ignorant of the fact that this disease can affect heterosexuals.“I think that we should talk about all who suffer with this condition; not just those who have the highest risk,” he added.McCann retorted by claiming that Clarke’s reasoning was an “unconsciously homophobic intervention”.The DUP motion on a new campaign for HIV awareness and prevention was passed in Stormont.The CEO of HIV charity Positive Life welcomed the steps taken by Trevor Clarke and thanked him for bringing the issue forward.

Broward bailiff plans 2nd walk to raise awareness of human trafficking

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A South Florida bailiff is making a long trek for the second time to help raise awareness of human trafficking.Last summer, Broward County bailiff Deputy Robert DeHart walked from Fort Lauderdale to Washington, D.C. — a journey of 1,065 miles that took him 51 days to complete.“It was life-changing,” said DeHart. “I don’t think I still grasp the impact. It’s was much, and it’s going to remain with me the rest of my life.”Florida ranks third in the amount of human trafficking cases in the country, but DeHart felt like it wasn’t getting enough attention.“I just felt I wanted to be a male face being that we’re the biggest perpetrators,” said DeHart. “I want to be a male face and try to make a difference.”DeHart said he felt like the victims weren’t being heard.“My goal would be to attract the attention, especially the victims and survivors of human trafficking,” said DeHart, “so that they can see this guy here wants to be their voice.” On Aug. 11, DeHart will embark on a second walk to raise awareness. This time, DeHart’s walk will start in San Francisco as he walks along the California coastline.The journey of 650 miles should take him over a month and a half to complete.California has the most cases of human trafficking in the country.“I’m hoping that it’s going to attract the attention of other survivors so they can know they’re not alone,” DeHart said.Many survivors will be joining DeHart for parts of his California walk to raise their voices following the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein.“This thing is serious, and it’s everywhere,” said DeHart. “Rich, poor — it doesn’t matter.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

BangladeshIndia ties are organic says Bangladesh PM Sheikh

first_imgBEIJING: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, now on a visit to China, has described Dhaka’s ties with India and engagements with New Delhi as “organic”, saying it was “beyond a few billions of dollars of trade”. Hasina, who addressed the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in the northern Chinese port city of Dalian on Tuesday, said she always believed that despite differences in size and capacity compared to India, Bangladesh can only secure its peace and security Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us “It is just organic. We have shaded blood together for our (Bangladesh’s) independence,” Hasina said on Bangladesh-India relations. It was also “beyond a few billions of dollars of trade,” she said. On the other hand, Bangladesh’s relationship with China was good as well as “China is our partner in mega projects and economic advancements,” Hasina was quoted as saying by the official Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS). Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us “Our ties with Japan are historic, not just as the largest ODA partner,” she said adding, “Russia, another partner who stood by us during our liberation war, is now helping us in our energy security area”. Asked how she maintains friendship with both India and China at the WEF meeting, Hasina said her government has tried to be balanced and objective in its foreign relations. Advertise With Us “In the past 10 years of our government, I have tried to position Bangladesh in a balanced and objective manner with all our friends globally to optimise our economic and development aspirations,” she said in response to the question. She added that her government always made it clear to all that Bangladesh does not harbour any military ambition as “it is against our values and ethos”. Hasina, who has reached Beijing for official talks with the Chinese leadership, said that when she first assumed office as the premier in 1996, her government resolved a most challenging issue of sharing Ganges river water with India. “We amicably delimited our maritime boundary with Myanmar and India. And now, Bangladesh and India are joining hands to uniquely develop our trans-boundary river navigation,” she told the WEF meeting. “We are for a rule-based system. Yes, geo-politics will always be a part of life. But we have to carefully appreciate and balance issues (as) we cannot trade off long-term interests for short-term gains,” she said. Hasina pointed out that a cooperative yet competitive environment among all countries could be the “insurance of their shared prosperity”. Her address was followed by a question-answer session, when replying to a query about China’s growing forays in Bangladesh and implementing several mega projects in the country. She said Bangladesh was not worried about the “debt trap” as the mega deals with China were appropriately negotiated. “Many people talk about the ‘debt trap’. I have a simple answer. As long as these mega projects are in our people’s interest, has the right pay off and negotiated rightly, we must not be worried,” she said as many in Bangladesh are concerned after Sri Lanka’s ratio of foreign debt to GDP rose significantly as the island nation implemented several Chinese infrastructure projects. China is involved in some Bangladesh’s mega infrastructure projects while “our external debt is around 14.3 per cent of GDP (which) clearly is a sign of a healthy economy,” she was quoted as saying by the BSS. “During the past term of my government (2014-18), we engaged and deepened our ties with India-China-Japan-US-Europe-Russia seamlessly,” Hasina said. As a fast-growing economy, Bangladesh needs each of our friends for diverse purposes – not certainly at the expenses of another. “Each of our friends has distinct competence and interest as well. As long as our relationships are based on mutual trust and respect, we all gain for our peoples,” she said. Hasina predicted that in 10 years from now, Bangladesh is likely to become 25th largest economy globally and “whatever gaps or limitations that we have, we are ready to correct those. So, we are for ‘open regionalism'”.last_img read more
