first_img0Shares0000West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, pictured in October 2017, acknowledged the team’s loss to Liverpool on November 4, their second consecutive defeat at home, puts him in a precarious position © AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 4 – West Ham boss Slaven Bilic admitted he was in a “difficult situation” after a damaging 4-1 defeat to Liverpool left his side in deep trouble just above the Premier League relegation zone.Mohamed Salah put Liverpool ahead and Joel Matip doubled the visitors’ lead before half-time at the London Stadium. Manuel Lanzini reduced the deficit, but woeful West Ham capitulated and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted Liverpool’s third before Salah bagged his 12th goal of the season to seal the rout.A disappointed Bilic said his side had started well but then conceded two “cheap” goals.“We tried to change the shape and be more open in the second half, we scored but they are so good on the counter attack,” he said. “It is a big defeat for us.“It’s not a lack of effort. We should have defended better. It’s no excuse to concede from your own corner kick. At this level if you are 2-0 down so early it’s not game over but it’s very difficult to come back.“I have to talk to the chairman, we are going to discuss this defeat. It’s not the first one, it’s the second in a row in home. It is a very difficult situation for me.”When asked if he still had the club’s backing he said: “It’s hard for me to talk about that now.”But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted with his team’s showing.“The result, it feels good,” he said. “We changed our approach, it was a counter-attacking line-up to use our speed from a deep situation.“It was brilliant play for the first goal.“Our counter-attacking was pretty perfect, we had some wonderful play. Roberto Firmino, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a player play a third game in the week with such intensity and I’m a few days in this business.”“It’s a really good week,” he added. “It’s a good moment to have a little break. We lost our skipper overnight and Gini Wijnaldum did not have his boots here. We thought he had no chance of playing, we only brought him here so he is nearer to Amsterdam, he was flying there to see the doctor.”The victory took Liverpool back to sixth position in the Premier League table but West Ham, with just two league wins all season, are just one point off the relegation places.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img19 April 2016The world’s most famous gold coin, the Krugerrand, is commemorating Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday with a special limited edition.This is also the first time the South African Mint is celebrating a royal birthday.To mark the 90th Birthday of H.M Queen Elizabeth II, The South African Mint have issued a special and very limited Gold Krugerrand coin— Lord of Milton Manor (@regalmagazine) January 10, 2016“With an extremely low mintage of only 260 coins worldwide, this special edition. Krugerrand features a unique ‘QEII 90’ Mint Mark that will only appear on this special issue of gold Krugerrands,” noted the London Mint office.“This means that this coin will become a ‘one year only’ type, never to be released again.”It features:Obverse: bust of Paul Kruger by Otto SchultzReverse: springbok antelope by Coert Steynberg, also highlighting the unique “QEII 90th” Mint MarkAbout the KrugerrandThe South African Mint says the Kruggerrand evokes nostalgia because it has a classic design which “kindles memories of a bygone era and symbolises the romance and allure of gold”.Launched in 1967, it contains one troy ounce of pure gold. By the 1980s, fractional Krugerrands were made available – the 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz.The design dates back to 1892 when the country’s first coin series was circulated. It features a bust of the then president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, created by die-engraver Schultz. “The reverse design of the prancing springbok, South Africa’s national animal, was modelled by Coert Steynberg,” reads the South African Mint website.” It was originally created for the commemorative 5-shilling coin issued in 1947 to celebrate the visit of the British Royal Family to South Africa.”The name Krugerrand comes from Kruger and South Africa’s monetary unit, the rand – associated with the Witwatersrand, “the ridge of white water”, the area where gold was discovered in 1886.Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 90th birthday on 21 April.

first_imgFord v Ferrari is a great-looking, handsomely produced but tiringly acted and inert sports drama about two good ol’ boys from the self-admiring world of motor racing – which a character here wryly calls “turning left for four hours”. This picture goes straight ahead for two and a half.Based on a true story, it is crammed with unearned emotional moments and factory-built male characters whose dedication to their sport we are expected to find adorable and heroic by turns. This is a standard-issue, middleweight biopic-type film, which comes complete with the now mandatory three factual sentences over the closing credits and the black-and-white photographs of the real-life people involved looking less attractive than the Hollywood stars who played them. James Mangold directs, from a serviceable original script by playwright Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth and Jason Keller. Pinterest Share via Email Cup holder … Christian Bale as driver Ken Miles. Photograph: Merrick Morton/AP Toronto film festival Facebook Ford Bale’s performance is the polar opposite of Damon’s laid-back impersonation of Matt Damon. It is an actorly display: a spiky, gawky, angular and borderline-ridiculous collection of mannerisms, an accent that mixes Pete Postlethwaite with a bit of Noddy Holder and some body language that at times reminded me of Jack Douglas from the Carry On team. Bale drives along muttering, “Giddy-ap!” (Jodie Kidd did something similar behind the wheel when she was on Top Gear.)The film comes to life briefly in the sudden jolts and crashes that occur when fiercely competitive drivers bash into one another, and we realise that, unlike most other sports, motor racing is life-threateningly dangerous and was especially so in the 60s. So why are they doing it? Why is Miles pursuing something that could widow his beloved wife and make his son, Peter (Noah Jupe), fatherless. What has it all been for? The glory of the Ford motor company? Selfish speed thrills? It’s a mystery that is unsolved at the end of this blandly sentimental movie, which can’t reach out beyond the petrolhead fanbase. Twitter Topics Christian Bale Twitter Festivals First look review Facebook Reuse this content Pinterest Support The Guardian Since you’re here… Matt Damon Share on Messenger reviews Share on LinkedIn Share on Pinterest A relaxed Matt Damon brings his familiar, untroubled boyish charm to the role of Caroll Shelby, the racing-driver-turned-designer who was hired by Ford in the late 60s to put together a car and a team that would defeat Ferrari, those arrogant Italian artisans who presumed to think that their tiny little outfit had an artistry and flair superior to the corporate mass production of Ford.Christian Bale plays Ken Miles, the difficult, impulsive, grumpy but brilliant Brit hired by Shelby as his star driver – to the irritation of the pointy-headed, bean-counting suits at Ford, who want an obedient team player. Tracy Letts plays Henry Ford Jr with gusto and Josh Lucas plays Leo Beebe, his creepy assistant. Jon Berthal does what he can with the underwritten and underimagined role of Lee Iacocca, the Ford executive whose idea it evidently was in the first place for Ford to go into the glamorous but costly world of motor racing.The person with the most thankless role is Caitriona Balfe, who has to play Miles’s adoring wife, Mollie. She doesn’t have that much to do, and this is very much a guys’ film. At one stage, an irritable Beebe tells Shelby that Miles has the wrong attitude to be their driver and Shelby derisively replies that they could get some poster boy if he’d like and adds: “Hell, we can set up Doris Day behind the wheel if all you wanna do is lose!” That’s a rather ungallant line that reveals a little bit more about the film’s attitude to women than it intended.

first_imgEditor’s Note: The Discourse, APTN News and HuffPost Canada launch #TrackingTransMountain, a database that digs into what’s really happening with Indigenous consultation for the controversial project.Trevor Jang, Lauren Kaljur, Emma Paling, Lucy Scholey, Amber Bernard, Brenna Owen, Kendra Perrin, Caitlin Havlak and Jon von OfenheimIf Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project proceeds, the land, resources, and rights of more than 130 Indigenous communities and groups from Alberta’s oilsands to British Columbia’s coast could be affected.Because of this, the Canadian government and Kinder Morgan have a legal obligation to meaningfully consult with them.The pipeline company points to the 43 communities that have signed some form of agreement to show Indigenous support for the project.But anti-pipeline activists say there hasn’t been meaningful consultation. At the same time, six First Nations are arguing consultation was inadequate in court and a single judge ruling in their favour could put the project back to square one.So, what’s the truth?Reporters across Canada are documenting a range of Indigenous voices that express support, concern and everything in between. These stories sometimes conflict, adding noise to a confusing but important part of the Trans Mountain story and leaving room for industry, anti-pipeline activists, and others to make competing claims to support their position.#TrackingTransMountain aims to present a more clear picture of the state of consultation across all of the communities affected. Building from the hundreds of pages of official documents, existing reporting and interviews with leaders and community members themselves, The Discourse, Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) and HuffPost Canada hope to offer information to help inform discussions about what’s happening.In a single interactive place, you can explore each Indigenous community along the pipeline and water tanker route to uncover details that you may have had trouble tracking down before.We’re contacting every Indigenous community identified in Kinder Morgan’s most recent report on Indigenous engagement to the National Energy Board.The database aims to include as many perspectives as possible, but not every community has gotten back to us yet.In the meantime, we’re filling it in with official documents from the consultation process. We know there are still holes to fill and perspectives missing. If you have information that you want to add, fill in this survey. We’ll continue to add information and report on it as it comes in.What’s next?Texas-based Kinder Morgan has given the Canadian government until May 31 to bring certainty to the $7.4-billion project, but the question of Indigenous jurisdiction and consultation is not going anywhere.Neither are future decisions affecting the rights of hundreds of Indigenous communities. No single story can fully capture what’s really at stake. But we believe reporters can improve coverage of these complex issues by collaborating with each other and the public.Follow #TrackingTransMountain on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates and stories from our collaborative reporting efforts.This story was produced as part of #TrackingTransMountain, a collaborative reporting project from The Discourse, APTN News, and HuffPost Canada that aims to deepen the reporting on Indigenous communities affected by Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project.last_img read more

first_imgSouthwestern College will evacuate the Chula Vista campus & all its centers Thursday, Sept. 6, while Campus Police investigate a credible threat. All classes are cancelled for the remainder of the day and all campuses will close. We will send updates as they become available.— Southwestern College (@swc_news) September 6, 2018CHULA VISTA (KUSI) — A report of a perceived threat that turned out to be unfounded prompted evacuations and closures of all Southwestern College campuses and related facilities Thursday.The potential security hazard led school officials to begin clearing all students and staff members from Southwestern’s main campus in Chula Vista and its four satellite locations about 9:15 a.m., college spokeswoman Lillian Leopold said.The emergency security measures were prompted by a report by one student who overheard another make a seemingly menacing statement Wednesday night, according to Leopold, who declined to describe the nature of the perceived threat.Among the facilities evacuated and closed for the day were Southwestern College Higher Education Centers in National City, Otay Mesa and San Ysidro, as well as Crown Cove Aquatic Center in Coronado.Campus employees worked with the Metropolitan Transit Service to increase bus lines that service Southwestern College, and campus police directed traffic in the parking lot of the main campus to speed up the evacuation process.In the mid-afternoon, college officials announced that law enforcement personnel had contacted and interviewed the student who reportedly made the suspicious statements and determined that he had not, in fact, issued any threat of violence, Leopold said. His name was not released.The spokeswoman declined to elaborate on the circumstances that resulted in the apparent misunderstanding.All Southwestern College facilities were scheduled to remain closed for the remainder of the day, then reopen for normal operations on Friday.Students who left vehicles at the main campus while evacuating were being allowed to retrieve them Thursday afternoon and evening. They were directed to enter the school through its H Street entrance, Leopold said.Statement from Southwestern College Superintendent/President Dr. Kindred Murillo“We are working with our College Police to investigate a credible threat that we received from a student. In an abundance of caution while we investigate, the college is cancelling all classes and evacuating all campuses. We will post updates on our social media and on our website: www.swccd.edu.” September 6, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Unspecified threat prompting Southwestern College evacuation unfounded Categories: Local San Diego News Posted: September 6, 2018 Updated: 5:47 PM KUSI Newsroom FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgPV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal would look to become the first Indian winners of Asian championships since 1965IANSMost people know about the Indian badminton players who have won the All England Championships. They are also likely to remember Indian badminton medallists in World Championships and Olympics. But it would be a very tough question to ask someone, who was the last and only Indian to win the Badminton Asia Championships?For the answer, you would have to go to an era even before that of Prakash Padukone. It was in 1965 that Dinesh Khanna became the Asian Champion by triumphing in this event. Since then, many great badminton players have come and gone but a gold medal in this prestigious, if sometimes overshadowed the event, remains elusive for India.Will 2019 be different?As the 2019 edition kicks off on April 23, can we expect the drought to be broken this time? Last year, HS Prannoy and Saina Nehwal claimed Bronze in their respective categories. This year, both Saina and PV Sindhu will be competing, not just to end India’s 54-year long wait but also to regain some form.Sindhu is enduring a terrible year and after some disappointing results, have faced questions about her focus and dedication to the game. Saina started the year on a good note by winning Indonesia Masters – albeit with a walkover in the final against Carolina Marin – and retaining her Nationals crown. But she too has subsequently not produced the kind of results her fans would have hoped for.Going by present form, the chances are not bright for India. But there is some hope. Defending champion and the best player in women’s singles circuit right now, Tai Tzu Ying, has withdrawn from the event. The biggest obstacle in the Indian ladies’ way to the title is out. But there still remain other formidable foes. Tai Tzu Ying’s absence from the tournament would boost the chances of Indian ladiesRobertus Pudyanto/Getty ImagesBiggest threatsChen Yufei, the fastest rising Chinese player, who defeated Tai Tzu Ying in the finals of All England Championships earlier this year, is in the fray. So are the two Japanese girls constantly featuring in the last-four of big events – Nozomi Okuhara and Akane Yamaguchi. They would be joined by Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon – always a threat – and China’s other prominent player HE Bingjiao.Unfortunately for Sindhu, if she gets through the initial rounds, the quarterfinals could see her facing Sung Ji Hyun of South Korea. The latter hasn’t won a big title in a long time but was responsible for knocking out Sindhu in the 1st round of All England Open and the 2nd round of Malaysian Open. Saina would face her first big challenge in the quarterfinals also, in the form of Yamaguchi, a consistent performer.So, the road is tough for the two Indian badminton queens. But let us remember that in the past, Sindhu has shown the ability to raise her performance dramatically in big events. Though she only has a bronze in Asian Championships so far, this could be the tournament where her fortunes turn around. As for Saina, her form is better than what her results indicate. A little more luck and effort could see her earning another medal, to go along with three bronzes, at this prestigious event.Men’s singlesIn the men’s category, there are just two representatives of India – Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma. With a field containing the likes of Kento Momota, Shi Yuqi and Chen Long, it is going to be extremely hard for either to get to semis. Prospects for India don’t look good. But Sindhu’s mercurial form and Saina’s latent quality might just bring joy to Indian fans.last_img read more

first_imgParticipants at a Prothom Alo roundtable styled `Triumphant songs of the juveniles` at the daily’s Kawran Bazar office on Sunday. Photo: Prothom AloElderly members of the family need to hear the children for inspiring their healthy growth and hepling them to attain leadership skills, said a group of teenagers.They told a Prothom Alo roundtable on Sunday that adoloscent girls do not have preparations to face the challenges of physical and mental changes during the adulthood.”We feel our families need to talk to us and let us to speak frankly to them. Health taboos such as the one on menstruation should be removed,” said Kulsum Akter, a girl from Karail slum in the city.Rhidita Haque, a student of BPATC School and College, pointed out that apart from facing health challenges, young girls are still harrassed by stalking here and there. “But the girls are often blamed for such social ills,” she regretted.Also another girl and two boys shared their experience at the roundtable styled “Triumphant songs of the juveniles” organised by Prothom Alo, in association with Unicef, at the daily’s Kawran Bazar office.Stakeholders at the discussion observed that although one-fourth of the country’s population is adolescent, their wellbeing is not taken seriously.Social problems such as child marriage, child labour and sexual harassment of the children are still common and should be prevented to ensure a better Bangladesh, they said.ABM Ruhul Azad, additional secretary of youth and sports ministry, emphasised strengthening family values to improve the life of the adolescents.“Around one third of the total population of the country is 18-35 years of age. We must use the power of the youth to reap the demographic dividend,” he insisted.The official, however, acknowledged that the government alone cannot ensure secure future of the youth unless families, communities and non-governmental sectors play their due role.Abul Hossain, project director of multi-sectoral programme on violence against women under the ministry, mentioned that the government has identified 38 hazardous works for the children but they are still working in those risky sectors.Unicef’s deputy representative Sheema Sen Gupta put emphasis on checking child marriage to ensure a better future of the country itself.Teacher of Dhaka university’s Women and Gender Studies Ayesha Banu recommended formation of separate ministry for women and children in view of importance of their issues.For improving the life of adolescents in Bangladesh, Unicef’s Neha Kapil said community leaders such as Imams shoudl be engaged in the process.Ain O Salish Kendra (ASK) executive director Sheepa Hafiza, Grameenphone’s chief corporate affairs officer Mahmud Hossain, Bangladesh Mohila Parishad’s senior lawyer Dipti Rani Shikder and Dnet’s Sirajul Hossain also addressed the discussion moderated by Prothom Alo associate editor Abdul Qayyum.last_img
