We are a new group of players and it will take time, but hopefully it will click soon. I hope the fans will understand the situation and I think they do.“It’s important that they are supportive in every single game and keep believing in the team, because this group of players really has something quite good in terms of quality and, with a little more work, we will see the effects on the pitch.”The Hammers will now meet Fabianski’s former club Arsenal at the Emirates this Saturday.last_img read more

first_imgJaved Akhtar says MS Dhoni should not retireINDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesAfter Lata Mangeshkar, Javed Akhtar also expressed his view on the ongoing debate and rumours of MS Dhoni planning to retire from International Cricket.Like the veteran singer, Akhtar also feels that Dhoni has a lot of cricket left in him, and pointed out reasons why he should not think about retirement now.The popular lyricist and writer opined that Dhoni’s experience is an advantage for the team, and one should not even talk about his retirement.”As a middle-order batsman or a WK M S Dhoni is a totally dependable n trustworthy. Virat is graceful enough to accept that Dhoni’s understanding of game is an advantage for the team.One can see that a lot of cricket is still left in Him . Why even talk about his retirement,” he tweeted.Just a few days ago, Lata Mangeshkar had tweeted, requesting the popular Indian player not to even think about retirement.”Namaskar M S Dhoni ji. Aaj kal main sun rahi hun ke aap retire hona chahte hain. Kripaya aap aisa mat sochiye. Desh ko aap ke khel ki zaroorat hai aur ye meri bhi request hai ki retirement ka vichar bhi aap mann mein mat laayiye.” (“These days, I am hearing that you want to retire. Please don’t think like this. The country needs your skills and it is my request also that you don’t allow the thought of retirement to enter your mind,” she had written.Dhoni’s performance in the World Cup has been much scrutinised, as many criticised him for allegedly not scoring runs at the required pace. After he failed to pull India to the finals, many started opining that he should retire now. However, Dhoni has not made any official statement on this regard.last_img read more

Because it’s 110 percent different,” Skillern-Jones said.For Hilliard’s school community, back-to-school was a special kind of homecoming — a return to their home campus.Hilliard’s gotten a $5 million dollar facelift, including new furniture, new books, some fresh paint and new floors.center_img Last year, its nearly 600 students had to attend another campus. Assistant principal Bathsheba Nash said she’d meet families at the original campus and ride the bus with them to the other facility.“We came every day with a spirit of hope,” Nash said. “We believed the work could be done, and now I’m going to say we’re here and we’re going to continue to do that work.”Despite the challenges, Hilliard Elementary turned around its academics last year. It had previously missed academic standard’s for three years in a row and was placed on the state’s watch list. Last month, it made a passing grade.“You reap what you sow,” said Skillern-Jones. “And our people, our students and our teachers have sown good seeds in good soil. And that is the reason why we are where we are right now.”Laura IsenseeInterim Superintendent Grenita Lathan congratulates Hilliard Elementary’s assistant principal, Bathsheba Nash, for the resilience her students have shown.Things still aren’t totally back normal, though, for the community surrounding Hilliard. State Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston, said that her office has talked with residents who are still living in moldy homes. Houston’s Interim superintendent Grenita Lathan said that the district will advocate for Texas lawmakers should use the state’s rainy day fund for continued Harvey relief for schools.” I think we are forgetting that we were struggling as a district, as a city and as a state prior to Harvey. Harvey compounded it,” Lathan said. “So, I would say, no. Not only are our students not back to normal, our staff are not back. People are still experiencing trauma if it rains.” Laura IsenseeNearly 600 students returned to their home campus at Hilliard Elementary a year after it suffered extensive damage from Harvey.

first_imgYesterday, China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) published a proposal to ban cryptocurrency mining with a reason stating that crypto mining is a waste of valuable resources. The team is waiting for public feedback over this proposal and they also indicated that “the crypto-mining ban could take effect as soon as they’re formally issued”, the Bloomberg reports. The proposal also includes a “revised list–first published in 2011–of industries it wants to encourage, restrict or eliminate”, Reuters reports. The public can comment on the draft latest by May 7. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin use specialized computers that use a huge amount of energy. According to the South China Morning Post, China’s coal-rich regions, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia have become popular destinations for crypto-miners looking for cheap electricity. “It’s estimated that as much as 74 percent of global crypto mining is occurring in China, a place where it’s also the most carbon-intensive”, Gizmodo reports. A recent report in Nature Sustainability says crypto mining emits anywhere between 3 million and 15 million tons of carbon dioxide globally. In 2017, China banned initial coin offerings and also put a halt to virtual currency trading. In 2018, Chinese officials outlined proposals to discourage crypto mining. Jehan Chu, a managing partner at blockchain investment firm Kenetic, said, “The NDRC’s move is in line overall with China’s desire to control different layers of the rapidly growing crypto industry, and does not yet signal a major shift in policy.” According to Reuters, “The draft for a revised list added cryptocurrency mining, including that of bitcoin, to more than 450 activities the NDRC said should be phased out as they did not adhere to relevant laws and regulations, were unsafe, wasted resources or polluted the environment.” An executive who works closely with Chinese mining firms told Wired, “although the ban was widely expected to move forward, miners expect it will take years for the government to fully rein in their operations.” To know more on this news in detail, head over to Bloomberg.

first_imgRelated posts:Drug traffickers who cooperate with the US government have it pretty good – too good, watchdog says Military helicopter shot down as drug violence surges in western Mexico Mexico drug war shootout leaves dozens dead Fabio Lobo: Honduras’ drug trafficking presidential son? In April of this year, two Drug Enforcement Administration task force members stopped a man named Issa Serieh at Los Angeles International Airport, asked him some questions, and seized $30,750 in cash off of him. They sent him on his way without charging him with a crime.The task force members “were in a LAX terminal gate monitoring passengers arriving on American Airlines flight number 2220 which had traveled from Chicago,” according to a complaint filed last month at the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. And why were they monitoring that particular gate? Because “Chicago is a known consumer city for narcotics and Los Angeles is a known source city where narcotics can be purchased,” the complaint explains.That fact, plus the fact that Serieh exited the plane with “a small backpack over his shoulder,” are the only reasons given for why the agents initiated the encounter that would lead to over $30,000 in cash being taken from Serieh.We don’t know why Serieh was carrying the cash. Earlier this year, he was arrested in Nebraska for driving one of two cars that police officers found 128 pounds of marijuana in. But the DEA task force members didn’t know this when they stopped him in Los Angeles. The complaint states they identified him as Issa Serieh later, during their questioning. The only reasons they give for initial suspicion are the backpack, and the flight from Chicago to L.A.For his part, Serieh maintains his innocence. A court declaration filed by his lawyer states that the money was loaned to him by his uncle, and that he was stopped without probable cause. In a phone interview, Serieh’s lawyer Peter Herrick said the agents stopped Serieh solely on the basis of where his flight originated from, and that they took his money when they didn’t like how he answered questions about where he was going and how he planned to get there.“Their preconceived notions of the way people should do things is way off the charts,” Herrick said. He said that information about Serieh’s previous marijuana arrest was “so irrelevant to this case that I didn’t even look into it.” He said that the government shouldn’t be able to take a person’s money away without first convicting them of a crime. In this case, Serieh wasn’t charged with anything.This reporter reached out to the DEA for comment but they didn’t immediately respond.The episode illustrates the broad types of behaviors that drug cops base their suspicions on. The Chicago to Los Angeles air route is the fourth-busiest in the United States, serving roughly 3 million passengers per year.But Los Angeles is part of a federally-designated “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area.” So is Chicago. So are New York, D.C., Houston and pretty much every major city in the U.S. Overall, nearly two-thirds of the nation’s residents live in one of these “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas.”There are almost certainly more drug traffickers active in these areas than in other areas of the country. These areas are also home to a larger population.The DEA’s net of suspicion is extremely broad. If you stop and question enough of the 3 million people who fly from Chicago to Los Angeles, eventually you will get lucky and stumble upon someone who might be involved with drug crimes. But you have to do an awful lot of fishing, and of questioning completely innocent people, before you make that one catch.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_imgOn whether there were miscommunications with Bobby Massie during the game:“He had miscommunication with Coop (Jonathan Cooper) about three times. Obviously, he struggled getting off on the snap count also. We had some miscommunication on who was sifting who on the right side a number of times.”On whether he knew that Drew Stanton had those kinds of dance moves:“No, and I really wouldn’t like to see them again. They weren’t really pretty.”On his own dance moves:“No. I’m better than that.”On the team scoring a touchdown after Mike Iupati’s injury:“Yeah, I think it was huge for Earl’s (Watford) confidence and everybody else’s. I thought that we came out and set a really nice tempo after the first series as far as offensive play. Carson was spot on, and Mike Floyd felt like he couldn’t be covered. That’s what you want when you’re out there against those guys.”On what last night’s win can do for the team’s confidence:“I think it reassures it. We don’t lack any confidence, for sure, but it reassures it when you go there and win. It just helps to build it. A win like that could lead to a really good week of practice, which leads to better weeks.” On how big it is for Jaron Brown to make big plays in big spots:“He always has. It’s such an anomaly for him, or whatever that word is, when he dropped that ball up there last year. That isn’t him. He doesn’t drop touchdowns. I know it was good for him to make those plays. He had a certain fire for retribution and I’m really happy for him. No one works harder on our team than him.”On whether he’s ever seen someone steal an interception away from Richard Sherman like Jaron Brown did:“I don’t know. He tipped it, but he had a nice break on it. It was no sure thing, but it was a great play by J.B.”On whether he’s extra cautious to bring a player like Iupati back after the situation he went through last night:“Oh yeah. It’s up to the player. Sometimes, it’s harder for the player to get over. He’s healthy, but it’s hard to get over it. When he’s ready, he’ll tell us.”On whether he learned more about his team when it came back after losing the lead as compared to if it had led the whole way:“I don’t think there’s any doubt. If it had been a coaster all the way, who knows if we could handle adversity down the road? Now that you’ve done it on the road, it proves to you that you can. I think there’s a lot of growth from that win more so than had it been 19-to-nothing the whole way.” On Cincinnati being a lot like Arizona:“Very similar. They’re very long and fast. They have a solid secondary. Andy (Dalton) is playing really, really well. They’ve got a huge and great wide receiver. Good stable of backs. They’re a quality, quality group. Marvin (Lewis) is a heck of a football coach. They’ve got a great staff.”On whether there are pros and cons of facing a team that looks like Arizona:“I don’t know if there is either. The Seahawks are so different offensively, but it’s a little bit easier to play a more traditional group. They’ll run the read-option too. Andy will take it and pull it and you have to account for him. They’ve got a few gimmicks that they run that you have to waste practice time on, because if you don’t, they’ll hurt you with them.”On whether he’s ever seen someone win back-to-back challenges:“I’m trying to think if I ever have. I should have won that one because he didn’t make it.”On Arizona’s wide receiver depth with the play of Jaron Brown:“You throw J.J. (Nelson) in there, he played well in Cleveland. We have a group of six guys that we’re all very confident in. If Mike (Floyd) can’t play, we’ll have somebody step in and be ready to go.” On Earl Watford’s play:“He was OK. He’s been practicing so much tackle that his sets were off a little bit. He needs to get his hands on them a little bit quicker. We’ll get him a bunch of reps at guard this week.”On being a better road team:“Well, we talked about it a long time ago when we lost that one at home. We had to stretch out a couple more road wins to get where we wanted to go. This was one that you don’t ever put on the calendar, but it’s a good one to even it back up, especially in the division.”On what the last couple of series say about Carson Palmer:“I think it speaks pretty much for itself. The guy is so resilient. He comes off the field – ‘What happened?’, ‘How are we fixing it?’, and ‘Let’s go.’ I never have to worry about him on the bench getting starry-eyed or googly-eyed like some quarterbacks do when they get hit. He just wants to know what happened. We talk about it, show him the pictures, and what’s up in the next series. Drew (Stanton) had a good impact in this one, down the stretch with a couple really good ideas that I know that he and Carson talked about. They came to me, and when you get input from your quarterbacks, they’re very confident about that play. Even if you have to draw it in the dirt, it’s a good time to draw one in the dirt.” Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians leaves the field after an NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015, in Seattle. The Cardinals beat the Seahawks 39-32. (AP Photo/Stephen Brashear) 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires – / 42center_img “On the very positive side, Mike Iupati is fine. He actually will be day-to-day. We’ll put him through the protocol for precautionary measures and he’s a little stiff, but it was a very scary moment and we’re very happy to see him in the locker room smiling. Michael Floyd will be day-to-day with a hamstring, Cory Redding will be day-to-day with a low ankle sprain and we’ll have more updates on Wednesday when we practice. Those are the three guys and with everybody else, there are normal bumps and bruises for a ball game. Like I said last night, I don’t think I’ve been more proud of a bunch guys to start a game so fast, then have it go downhill so fast, and then regain it, especially in a venue like that. I think it speaks volumes about the character of the group of guys we have, especially our leader, our quarterback, and our defense. The guys on defense, three game balls – Frostee (Rucker) was outstanding; Josh Mauro, he plays his best up there and he had a heck of a ball game; Kevin Minter, who had a really, really good game. He did a great job. We asked him to do a lot of checks, like a quarterback, and he was spot on in this game. Offensively, the two wide receivers, Larry (Fitzgerald) and Mike (Floyd); Larry for his catches, but more for his blocking. He did a great job of blocking Kam Chancellor, which is not an easy task. We only had two negative runs in the game and that’s something we preached all last week. It was to try and stay ahead of the chains. A lot of it was Larry’s blocking, and Mike obviously had a big night. And Carson (Palmer), more for resiliency and his leadership, but also he put up some pretty good numbers. It was a great game. It sets up this one. No need to talk about stretches and all that bull(expletive). It’s a big game here and we really can’t wait to see our fans show up Sunday night and really get after it.” TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, now in his third year with the team, meets with the media the day after every game.In this space, we will highlight some of what Arians had to say, and Monday he talked about his team following a 39-32 road win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was a big win for the Cardinals, who improved to 7-2 and have a three-game lead in the NFC West.He started with an opening statement: On whether Iupati is in the concussion protocol:“Yeah, concussion.”On whether there’s a chance of an emotional letdown next Sunday against Cincinnati:“There’s no chance of a letdown. There might be a letdown today, but there won’t be any for Sunday. Our guys know that when you get an undefeated—well we’ll see if they’re undefeated, but probably undefeated – team come into your house, a first place team from the AFC, and we’ve got a lot at stake still.”On whether the team is setting a goal of trying to get a first round bye in the playoffs:“Right now, it’s just add them up at the end. Let’s stay in the moment to make sure that those kinds of things happen. But if you start talking about them too much, I think you start looking at the wrong goals, and right now, it’s to have the best Wednesday practice that you can have.”On the draw play to Andre Ellington:“They had been double blitzing us up the middle pretty much the whole fourth quarter. It was going to be a hit or miss play. It was either going to hit big, or they were going probably get us for a three yard loss, and we’d use their last timeout, punt it down, and play for the field goal. You know, play to stop them. But if we could crack it, then you knew you were going to get at least the first down. Andre makes Kam (Chancellor) miss and then Britt (Golden) gets a great block and he takes it to the house. You never call that play thinking you’re going to get a touchdown. You just want to get those five yards. As soon as I saw him slip under the end, we were in good shape. We were in real good shape. But, watching him go down the sideline and make Kam miss, that was big.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo On how long that play has been in the play book:“Eighteen years. It hadn’t been working too good this year.”On Ellington’s contributions last night:“I just had a feeling that Andre would have a big game. He had one poor play where he missed the blitz that was a sack fumble for the touchdown and then he made up for it with the great block on Jaron’s (Brown) catch and obviously the run. He made a couple nice catches. I thought we had him one-on-one a couple other times, but we didn’t throw it to him. He’s a playmaker and his snaps were up to where they belong, up around 30. That was a nice mix. We don’t usually get 85 plays. So everybody had a nice handful, as far as the running backs.”On whether it’s helped Ellington to not be the every-down running back this season:“Yes and no. He’s healthier, but if you asked him, I’m sure he’d rather be the bell cow.”On why Chris Johnson wasn’t able to make big runs last night:“They’re really good tacklers. Guys came off blocks. We weren’t able to get off on the snap count, because there was no snap count. When you play in that kind of noise, especially the edge guys, it’s just that they’re reacting to the defense a lot of the times, so you’re not going to get the push. He did get out there for four, five or six a couple times. We were basically hammering it straight ahead. His forte is going sideways, but that’s their defense’s forte. When we went sideways, we lost yards. We didn’t do that anymore.”last_img read more

first_img WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – A three-day Phish music festival was scuttled by dirty water from torrential rains on Thursday, with health officials denying a permit just as the rock band was about to go onstage for its traditional sound check jam.“We are still in shock,” the band said in a statement on its website . “Our families are here, our gear is set, our tents are up. We keep waiting for someone to come over and tell us that there is a solution, and that the festival can go on. Unfortunately, it is not possible.”The Curveball festival was expected to draw more than 30,000 fans to the Finger Lakes village of Watkins Glen, in central New York, starting on Friday.A mandatory order to boil water was issued for the area on Thursday after days of heavy rain, and the state Department of Health said tests showed it would be impossible to deliver clean drinking water to festival patrons and vendors.“While all parties acknowledge the inconvenience of this cancellation to patrons,” the health department said, “we have a responsibility to act in the best interest of public health and safety for all.”A 14-county state of emergency was in effect on Thursday, two days after storms poured more than 6 inches (15 centimetres) of rain on towns between Seneca and Cayuga lakes, washing out roads and swamping cars and mobile homes. More storms were anticipated.Phish fan Jeff Goldenberg had travelled from Toronto with his wife and baby for the event and said the cancellation was “a total bummer.”Goldenberg, 42, said he has been to more than 100 Phish concerts since he was 15.“Cancellations happen. But what makes Phish different is that people plan their life around it. They put a lot of time and money and effort into following them everywhere,” Goldenberg said. “People are really upset.”Many Phish faithful had already set up tents on the grounds of Watkins Glen International, an automobile racing track with camping facilities. Phish and Curveball organizers said they will notify ticket holders about how to obtain refunds.Phish, known for extended jams, improvisation and a wide variety of genres from psychedelic rock to bluegrass, has a dedicated base of followers much like the Deadheads who followed the Grateful Dead from the mid-1960s through the early ’90s.

first_imgConsumption of motor fuel in 2018 fell by around 2 per cent on the previous year, owing to no small part to more and more Greek Cypriots buying their fuel in the north, the head of the petrol station owners association said on Thursday.Most purchases of fuel from the north by Greek Cypriot motorists occurred in the months of June, July, August and September, said Stefanos Stefanou.He said that despite the current cold spell, demand for heating fuel is on the rise, but not as much as might have been expected.People tend to buy small quantities at a time, he added.High petrol and diesel prices began easing off in November with the fall in the price of crude.Crude is now going for $53 to $54 a barrel.The Consumers Association recently cited statistics showing a record number of residents of the Republic filling up their cars in the north, where petrol is considerably cheaper.The state lost some €12m in tax revenue in the first seven months of the year, as more and more motorists opted to fill their tanks in the north.During the same period, petrol stations lost close to €1m in commission.Stations in the government-controlled areas get a commission of 5.5 cents per litre.There are some 300 petrol stations in the south.Earlier this month, parliament passed legislation bringing in a 5.95 cent per litre reduction in consumption tax on petrol, diesel, heating fuel and kerosene. The tax reduction is five cents but adding the reduction in VAT the total amount comes to 5.95 cents per litre.Meanwhile the Statistical Service said that total sales for all petroleum products in November were 10.3 per cent down on the previous month.Sales of heavy fuel oil to ships and jet fuel decreased slightly, as did invoices for light fuel oil, petrol and diesel.   You May LikeSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
