first_imgMauricio Pochettino admits his side’s performance was not up to standard despite beating rivals Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford.The Argentine boss doesn’t want his side to get carried away with a result like against Man United, saying they are going to ‘crash’ if they do so.“My mood wasn’t great, I was so disappointed [after Old Trafford],” he explained, as quoted by the Guardian.“We need to improve our performance. I wasn’t happy with the first half.“We need to talk about reality, not perception, and the reality was that in the first half we could concede one, two or three goals.“The team showed character and in the second half we dominated but if we want to fight for big things, it’s about trying to improve.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“After three games, Watford are over the moon and if we’re not ready and we believe that because we beat Manchester United 3-0, all is fantastic, we are going to crash.“It’s easy to talk about perception.“When you’ve beaten Manchester United 3-0 in Old Trafford, a historic victory, it’s easy to say our performance was fantastic and they were not so good.“But when you watch the game again, the line was very thin. In our last three games, we’ve conceded a lot of chances and Hugo Lloris made an unbelievable save to keep us alive at Old Trafford.“We need to show we are capable over 10 months, not after three games.”last_img read more

first_imgBayern München’s president Uli Hoeness, wanted to remind everybody that the German giants won’t be favorites vs Borussia Dortmund.If you thought that next weekend will be exciting only because England will have a Derby, Bayern’s president Uli Hoeness was gracious enough to remind everybody that Germany will also have Der Klassiker between the Bavarian squad and Borussia Dortmund.This match is arguably the biggest event in the Bundesliga every year, it usually has the bigger club as the absolute favorite but this season things are going to be very different.Dortmund is currently amongst the most exciting squads in all of Europe, their latest defeat against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League is no indicator of the real level of performance they have brought to the domestic competition this season.Bayern München’s top board members are very aware of how complicated next Saturday’s match will be and they won’t let the illusion of Dortmund’s latest defeat deceive them in any shape or form.The German giants have gotten too many negative results in the current season, this is what will keep them from getting too confident and the perfect excuse for them to go all out against the Bundesliga’s revelation.⭐️ #UCL-Gruppe A nach vier Spielen:1⃣ Borussia Dortmund (9 Pkt.)2. @Atleti (9)3. @ClubBrugge (4)4. @AS_Monaco (1) pic.twitter.com/kyYu0A4XlT— Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) November 6, 2018Regardless of how much power Bayern München has for this upcoming Der Klassiker, there is no way to overlook the sensational performances that many of the young talented players Borussia Dortmund have been delivering every single week.Starting with their ‘secret weapon’ Jadon Sancho, the young English international who is already established as one of the best players in Europe after only a few months of constant delivery of stellar performances for his new club.We can also mention the great first season that Moroccan left-back Achraf Hakimi is also having with Borussia Dortmund, the Real Madrid product who is destined to go back to Los Blancos and become the Marcelo replacement the club had been looking for so long.And what can we even say about young sensation Christian Pulisic, an already well-established star inside the club who is arguably amongst the most talented players of his generation and the United States’ best footballer today?All these kids are being led by German winger Marco Reus, an experienced forward who is starting to look like he could be about to have the best season of his career.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.”We have a young squad in transition, and a coach who has to implement his way without completely. You have to have a little patience.”-Uli Hoeness#FCBAEK#UCL[@altobelli13] pic.twitter.com/jbaMVL9cNO— Bavarian Tweets (@BavarianTweets) November 7, 2018All these elements haven’t gone through Bayern’s radar without getting unnoticed, the whole club is worried about next Saturday’s match and president Uli Hoeness already knows how difficult it will be for them to win.“You can’t go to Dortmund and say that you want to secure three points. Dortmund have had a very good season so far, no doubt about it,” said Uli via Goal.“We do not go to Dortmund as favorites, but as underdogs – for the first time in a long time.”“We have to make sure we play a good game there and then we’ll see what happens.”“Don’t always be so negative. The season has just begun, we have a team in transition, a young coach who has to settle in here and you have to be patient,” he added.“Four weeks ago you all complained that the Bundesliga is getting boring again and now it is no longer boring but exciting and now that doesn’t suit you.”“At some point you should agree on what you actually want. We’re doing you a few favors right now.”All what president Uli Hoeneß said in the mixed zone after tonight’s game. pic.twitter.com/ogK6rYxyyI— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) November 8, 2018Who will win the next Der Klassiker between Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund?

first_imgIn this image made from video provided by Korea Broadcasting System (KBS), South Korean president Moon Jae-in, second from left, and his wife Kim Jung-sook, left, are welcomed by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his wife Ri Sol Ju upon their arrival in Pyongyang, North Korea on 18 September, 2018. Photo: APSouth Korean president Moon Jae-in arrived in North Korea on Tuesday for his third and possibly most challenging summit yet with leader Kim Jong Un in which he hopes to break an impasse in talks with the United States over the North’s denuclearisation and breathe energy into his own efforts to expand and improve relations between the Koreas.In what are by now familiar images of the two Korean leaders hugging and exchanging warm smiles, Kim greeted Moon at Pyongyang’s airport. They walked together past cheering crowds and a military honour guard, and then drove into the city, where security was higher than usual.Travelling with Moon are business tycoons including Samsung scion Lee Jae-yong, underscoring Moon’s hopes to expand cross-border business projects. Currently, all major joint projects between the Koreas are stalled because of US-led sanctions.Moon was expected to have talks with Kim on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Moon’s chief of staff. Moon and Kim were also expected to jointly announce the results of their talks on Wednesday if things go smoothly. Moon is to return to Seoul on Thursday.North Korea’s state-run media reported early Tuesday that Moon was to begin a visit, but said little else. It said the two will reaffirm their previous commitments to “peace, prosperity and the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.”Security was tight. Requests by The Associated Press to go to the airport or to drive around the city were denied.This is Moon’s first trip to the North Korean capital, though he has met Kim twice at the border village of Panmunjom.He is under intense pressure from Washington to advance the denuclearization process. Before his departure he said he intends to push for “irreversible, permanent peace” and for better dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington.”This summit would be very meaningful if it yielded a resumption of North Korea-US talks,” Moon said Tuesday morning just before his departure. “It’s very important for South and North Korea to meet frequently, and we are turning to a phase where we can meet anytime we want.”But his chief of staff tried to lower expectations of major progress on the future of Kim’s nuclear arsenal.Kim, meanwhile, is seemingly riding a wave of success.The North just completed an elaborate celebration replete with a military parade and huge rallies across the country to mark North Korea’s 70th anniversary. China, signalling its support for Kim’s recent diplomatic moves, sent its third-highest party official to those festivities. That’s important because China is the North’s biggest economic partner and is an important political counterbalance to the United States.North Korea maintains that it has developed its nuclear weapons to the point that it can now defend itself against a potential US attack, and can now shift its focus to economic development and improved ties with the South. While signaling his willingness to talk with Washington, Kim’s strategy has been to try to elbow the US away from Seoul so that the two Koreas can take the lead in deciding how to bring peace and stability to their peninsula.Talks between the United States and North Korea, which Moon brokered through his April and May summits with Kim, have stalled since Kim’s meeting with President Donald Trump in Singapore in June.North Korea has taken some steps, like dismantling its nuclear and rocket-engine testing sites, but U.S. officials have said it must take more serious disarmament steps before receiving outside concessions. Trump has indicated he may be open to holding another summit to resuscitate the talks, however.To keep expectations from getting too high, Moon’s chief of staff, Im Jong-seok, said it’s “difficult to have any optimistic outlook” for progress on denuclearization during the summit.But he said he still expects the summit to produce meaningful agreements that “fundamentally remove the danger of armed clashes and ease fears of war” between the two Koreas.South Korea last week opened a liaison office in the North’s city of Kaesong, near the Demilitarized Zone. Another possible area of progress could be on a formal agreement ending the Korean War, which was halted in 1953 by what was intended to be a temporary armistice. Military officials have discussed possibly disarming a jointly controlled area at the Koreas’ shared border village, removing front-line guard posts and halting hostile acts along their sea boundary.Moon is the third South Korean leader to visit North Korea’s capital for summits. Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun went to Pyongyang in 2000 and 2007 respectively to meet Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il. Those trips produced a slew of inter-Korean rapprochement projects, which were suspended after conservatives took power in Seoul.last_img read more

Taken on January 24, 2016.The Democratic National Convention has formally chosen Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 candidate for president.Divisions between Clinton supporters and those of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continued to roil the Texas delegation into the second day of the convention. But Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, who is at the convention in Philadelphia, is convinced most of Sanders’ followers will support Clinton in November. Turner says the Democrats’ have come back from worse intraparty fights than this to win the White House. He points to the party’s 2008 convention in Denver.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016“There were a lot of people who were committed to Hillary all the way to the convention,” Turner says, “and there were many people who said they were not going to support Barack Obama. I mean, they said it publicly, and at the time they said it, they meant it. But when people start kind of looking at all of the issues and who was in their best interest, people rallied behind President Barack Obama.”The mayor says he fully expects the 2008 dynamic will repeat itself, whatever Sanders supporters may think of Clinton personally.“I think that people recognize that there are important issues that are impacting children and families. The economy. Working-class people. The income inequality is very real. Criminal justice reform. Who will be appointing people to the United States Supreme Court. Those are big issues that supersede any one particular personality,” he says.Turner says he’s actually pleased to see Sanders voters, particularly younger ones, showing so much energy and passion. He says they’ve worked hard, and the party needs to respect their opinions. Listen Sharelast_img read more

first_imgAP Photo/John RaouxOrange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, left, answers questions at a news conference near the scene of a shooting where there were multiple fatalities in an industrial area near Orlando, Fla., Monday, June 5, 2017. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said on its official Twitter account that the situation has been contained.ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A disgruntled former employee opened fire Monday inside a Florida awning factory, killing five workers before killing himself, authorities said.Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings described the shooter as a 45-year-old man who had been fired in April and had been previously accused of assaulting a co-worker. The attacker was not believed to be a member of any type of subversive or terrorist organization, he said.The man was not charged when he was accused of battering the co-worker in June 2014, and his previous criminal record was otherwise minor — marijuana possession and driving under the influence, the sheriff said. The co-worker he allegedly beat up three years ago was not among the victims Monday, the sheriff added.Shelley Adams said her sister, Sheila McIntyre, called her from the company’s bathroom during the shooting and kept repeating, “My boss is dead. My boss is dead.”Fiamma Inc. calls itself one of the largest manufacturers of awnings for camper vans, motor coaches and sport utility vehicles.State and federal law enforcement officers converged on the awning business in an industrial park in Orlando shortly after 8 a.m. after a woman ran out and called 911 from a tile business across the street, said Yamaris Gomez, that store’s owner.“All she kept saying was he was holding a gun and told her to get out,” Gomez said.Officers were dispatched within 45 seconds and arrived two minutes later, the sheriff said. The FBI also responded, said Ron Hopper, who runs the FBI’s Orlando office. And while five people were killed, “seven others’ lives were saved due to the quick actions of the officers who arrived on the scene today,” said Special Agent Danny Banks of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.Authorities had no reports of any specific threats the gunman made to people at the company or anyone else, Banks said.The attack shows why people need to alert authorities whenever they learn of anything that could lead to violence, Banks said.“If people see something that seems abnormal, they need to say something,” Orlando Mayor Teresa Jacobs added.Sen. Bill Nelson called for more action to address mental health issues. He noted that next Monday will mark a year since the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, at a gay nightclub in Orlando. The attack at the Pulse club killed 49 people and wounded dozens more.“The city of Orlando, which is still healing from the Pulse massacre, has seen too much violence this past year,” the Florida Democrat said in a statement.Republican Gov. Rick Scott asked “all Floridians to pray for the families impacted by this senseless act of violence.”___Associated Press Writer Freida Frisaro in Miami contributed to this report.___The story has been edited to correct spelling of last name of sheriff to Demings, not Demmings.

first_img Related On Twitter’s Q2 earnings call, execs spent a good portion of the time on product improvements designed to make the social network easier to use and more useful — an area critics have called out as a problem for Twitter in the past. That has included work on machine-learning models to provide more relevant content in users’ Home timelines and notifications based on what they’re engaging with “in near real-time,” the company claimed.Twitter in the second quarter also started experimenting with new ways for people to customize their Home timeline, making it easier to use lists they’ve created or subscribed to. In addition, Twitter has made it easier to follow and join conversations, including showing the original tweet on an author’s profile page when someone is trying to follow a conversation. The company reported revenue of $841 million, an increase of 18% year-over-year. Net income was $1.1 billion, which included a significant one-time income-tax benefit. Adjusted net income was $37 million (or 5 cents per share). Twitter beat Wall Street’s revenue forecast but came in under consensus estimates of EPS of 19 cents.“Health remains our top priority and we are proud of the work we did in Q2. Our focus was on ensuring that our rules, and how we enforce them, are easy to understand,” Dorsey said in announcing the results. He said the company saw an 18% drop in reports of spammy or suspicious behavior across all tweet detail pages in the quarter.Twitter’s Q2 costs and expenses totaled $766 million, an increase of 21% year-over-year, resulting in operating income of $76 million and 9% operating margin. The company boosted headcount 20% in the quarter, standing at around 4,300 employees as of the end of June. CFO Ned Segal said Twitter anticipates 20% headcount growth for full-year 2019.Twitter issued third-quarter revenue guidance of $815 million to $875 million (in line with analyst expectations) but noted that sales for the second half of 2019 will decelerate year-over-year in part by the phase-out of certain resource-intensive ad formats. That should benefit Twitter over the long term, as it “refocuses its efforts on more efficient products,” Cowen & Co. analyst John Blackledge wrote in a research note.Video remains a key strategic push for Twitter. This week, Twitter announced a pact with NBC to distribute an exclusive live show from the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, along with other content. In Q2, the company announced several new live and on-demand video content partnerships. In addition to expanded renewals with partners such as Viacom, Live Nation, the NFL, ESPN, Bleacher Report, MLS and Activision Blizzard, Twitter announced new partnerships with news media partners including the Wall Street Journal and Time, along with a new partnership with Univision designed to bring even more premium content across sports, news, and entertainment to U.S. Hispanic audiences. Twitter’s changes to make the social net easier to use — and efforts to clean up the platform by curbing spam, harassment and other malicious activity — appear to working as CEO Jack Dorsey expected: Twitter grew its daily user base in Q2 at its fastest rate in nearly two years, boosted the top line and posted its seventh straight profitable quarter.In the second quarter of 2019, Twitter’s average monetizable daily active user base was 139 million, up 5 million sequentially and up 14% compared with 122 million in the same period a year ago. In the U.S., the average mDAU was 29 million, compared with 26 million in the same period of the previous year and compared with 28 million in the previous quarter.Shares of Twitter were up more than 5% in premarket trading Friday — and jumped as much as 11% in regular trading, closing up 8.9% for the day to $41.52 per share (a 52-week high). Twitter’s robust results come after both Facebook and Snap also reported strong gains in the second quarter.

first_imgIs your teenage daughter popping pills to shed weight? Beware, she may be at an increased risk of harming hormones, growth as well as mental health, researchers warned.The findings showed that diet pills are unsafe for all ages but especially for teenagers due to the presence of toxic chemicals in the supplements.These pills interfere with the body systems and result in nutritional deficiencies, particularly of iron and calcium, the researchers said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”In growing children and teenagers, even a marginal reduction in energy intake can be associated with growth deceleration,” dailymail.co.uk quoted the Canadian Pediatric Society researchers as saying. Weight loss pills are advertised as the quick solution to shedding pounds and obtaining the perfect figure, but they come with potentially dangerous side effects, including increased heart rate, fainting, unusual bleeding and heart attacks.Diet pills can also cause and, in extreme cases they can rip apart the stomach lining and even lead to death, the study showed. Further, researchers from the University of Minnesota said a startling 63 per cent of teenage girls use “unhealthy weight control behaviours” to maintain a slim shape.About 22 per cent of teenage females use “very unhealthy weight control behaviours”. The use of diet pills in teenage girls had a significant spike in a five-year span, jumping from 7.5 per cent to 14.2 per cent in 2006, they claimed.Instead of turning to diet pills, exercise, changing eating habits and drinking more water, mediation, are other healthy ways to lose weight, the reseachers said.last_img read more

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Brought to you by PCWorld Register Now » 3 min read December 5, 2007 A few years back, when I replaced my aging Athlon XP-based home-built PC with a faster, quieter system, I stored the old one away presuming that someday I’d do something interesting with it. Microsoft’s Windows Home Server proved the perfect excuse to do just that. The end result is a highly useful, though sometimes frustratingly simplistic, addition to my home tech lineup.Windows Home Server is Microsoft’s first stab at a consumer server product that sits at the heart of your network where other PCs can access its content. Available now on hardware such as HP’s MediaSmart Home Server or as a $180 software package from system-builder sites such as Newegg, Windows Home Server lets you store and stream media files, back up multiple PCs, and connect remotely via the Web. Plus, Microsoft says that add-on features such as video recording and home automation are on the way from third-party vendors.Windows Home Server requires an ethernet connection between the server and the network (Microsoft deemed wireless networking too flaky). I installed a prerelease copy of the operating system in about 2 hours; the only snag I hit involved enabling the remote Web access features. My router turned out to be the problem, and one I wasn’t able to resolve with tech support. To connect client PCs to the server, you install a simple console application on each that also lets you tweak the server’s settings.Soon, I was streaming music, photos, and standard-definition video to my 802.11g-enabled notebook, flawlessly. I experienced some stutters with a high-def test video file, but that’s an 802.11g bandwidth issue. Everything streamed cleanly to my ethernet-connected Windows XP Pro PC and my Xbox 360. The 360 connection is great, as it allows me to access media where I most enjoy it: on my couch, in front of my HDTV.Windows Home Server also lets you back up the entire contents of each connected PC to the server’s hard drive, as a compressed file that it updates daily with only the changes that have occurred since the last backup. The backup feature is quite slick, and it illustrates the degree to which Microsoft has successfully simplified an often-complicated process. You can add more hard drives to the server, and even enable data duplication (essentially RAID 1 data mirroring). But the nitty-gritty settings for such features are largely inaccessible, hidden behind basic wizards and check boxes.Simplicity is great, but I think enthusiasts like me will want access to more knobs and switches. Microsoft might envision a home server in every house, but I’m not sure the average PC user would even know what to do with one (yet). After having lived with the server for a few weeks, though, I can’t imagine not having one–a clear sign that it’s filling a need in my geek household. Better yet, it let me pull my old workhorse PC out of retirement.last_img read more

The Staffordshire Police Road Policing Unit (RPU) – formerly Tactical Support Team – revealed they had been conducting a speed enforcement session on the busy road. Officers did not reveal how many people were clocked speeding on the A50 yesterday. A Staffs Police RPU spokesman said: “We know there is a problem with drivers speeding on the A50 between Stoke & Uttoxeter, that’s why we carry out speed enforcement! “We had a driver at 107mph in a 70 mph zone. Court appearance pending.” Speeding is widely regarded to be one of the ‘fatal four’ – the main causes of road deaths across the United Kingdom – along with using a mobile phone while driving, not wearing a seatbelt and drink-driving.
