A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Captain Vincent Kompany doubled their lead in the 58th minute, before David Silva wrapped things up with a fine finish soon after.Former Manchester United defender Neville, now a leading television pundit, branded some Arsenal players “a disgrace”.”Mustafi has to be stronger than that,” Neville said on Sky Sports , referring to Aguero’s goal. “That is pathetic defending.”[Aaron] Ramsey, [Granit] Xhaka, [Mesut] Ozil — you’re walking on a football pitch at Wembley. Why are you walking? You’re a disgrace. An absolute disgrace.”I don’t even want to talk about them because they’ve been an absolute disgrace. Ramsey and Xhaka walking on a football pitch. Absolutely spineless.”And Arsenal favourite Thierry Henry believes some players switched off once they were 2-0 down.Henry said: “When you go 2-0 down against a team like Manchester City, as we saw, when running after the ball they kind of give up which is a bit difficult to understand.”But they did [give up]. They [City] picked them off on the third and it was 3-0.”What impresses me about Man City is Pep again won a final without conceding a goal. We say a lot about how his teams play, but they can defend well, high and in your half.”I used to say when I played under Pep, what was impressive was how we won the ball back and that never got a mention, but hopefully with these guys we’ll talk about it a little bit more.”last_img read more

On top of its quarterly earnings that beat expectations, the comments helped boost United’s stock almost 7 per cent in afternoon trading.CEO Oscar Munoz says the partial government shutdown isn’t having a major impact, but the airline is watching the situation closely.Chicago-based United says occasional long security lines haven’t caused it to delay flights. Government security screeners, who aren’t getting paychecks, have been calling in sick at higher rates.United reported Tuesday it earned $462 million in the fourth quarter, down 20 per cent from a year earlier but better than analysts expected.David Koenig, The Associated Presslast_img read more

BRUSSELS — The candidate to become the European Union’s agriculture commissioner says a key goal is promoting the survival of small and family farms.Polish candidate Janusz Wojciechowski says he would put farming at the centre of his policies during a five-year term that starts in November and make family farms a prime driver of progress.During his European Parliament confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Wojciechowski noted a dramatic decline in the number of farms throughout the EU.Wojciechowski said that from 2005 to 2015, the bloc lost 4 million farms and slumped to 11 million.He said that in the time of the three-hour hearing “more than 100 European farmers probably will lose their farm, their job. For many of them it will be tragic.”The Associated Press read more

“The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that three UN convoys left Beirut carrying food and water. Since 23 July, the World Food Programme (WFP) has provided more than 3,000 tons of food. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) has provided baby kits and hygiene kits to Beirut’s southern suburbs and southern Lebanon,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York.The recent fighting between Hizbollah and Israel in Lebanon damaged or destroyed around 30,000 homes, OCHA said, adding that a quarter of these were in the southern suburbs of Beirut. In total around $3.6 billion worth of physical damage was caused by the fighting, including 145 bridges and overpasses destroyed or damaged and 600 kilometres of roads.“It is the worst I have seen. This town has been flattened… basically all of importance – such as homes, infrastructure, electricity plants, shops, tobacco farms – is gone,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) emergency team member Ingebjorg Karstad, when she arrived in the southern Lebanese town of Ghandurryah.“At least it was nice to be able to say we would be willing to help immediately,” she added, after arriving ahead of an aid convoy yesterday that brought 120 tents, 750 blankets, 750 mattresses, 130 plastic sheets and 130 kitchen sets. “We just want to make sure people get what they need, when we say it.”UNHCR’s distribution of assistance to returned villagers in south Lebanon is now fully operational, a spokesperson said today, adding that the agency is the lead one in the UN system responsible for providing temporary shelter for those outside the major cities who have lost their homes.“There are some displaced people who have not been able to return home. Although the Government estimated 90 percent of the displaced returned within days of the ceasefire, some found their homes either destroyed or uninhabitable and are now staying with friends or relatives,” spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told reporters in Geneva.There are also some people who have remained where they fled during the fighting, unable to leave because they have no home or are worried about security, including around 2,000 Lebanese in Syria, she said.Unexploded ordnance and cluster bombs are also a major concern for the returnees, with 12 people already being killed and more than 50 injured by the scourge since the cessation of hostilities began on 14 August, OCHA said, quoting figures from the Lebanese Army. read more

first_imgChauves-souris : pourquoi ne les voit-on jamais le jour ?Mis en ligne récemment sur le bulletin de l’ambassade de France en Allemagne, les résultats d’une étude menée par un institut zoologique allemand montrent l’adaptation quasi-exclusive des chauves-souris à la vie nocturne.Les différences adaptatives essentielles entre les oiseaux et les chauves-souris ? Les premiers ont des plumes thermiquement isolantes, et n’ont une bonne vision que le jour. Les secondes ont des ailes noires membraneuses – véritables capteurs de chaleur – et une bonne vision nocturne, complétée par leur perception sonore exceptionnelle (écholocalisation).À lire aussiEbola : l’origine de l’épidémie la plus meurtrière enfin identifiée ?Résultat : les oiseaux sont diurnes, et les chauves-souris actives de nuit. Ces dernières, constituant l’ordre des chiroptères, qui compte quelque 970 espèces – des microchiroptères aux grandes roussettes -, ont acquis une anatomie et un métabolisme adaptés à la vie nocturne. Si de courts déplacements sont possibles de jour, ils occasionnent rapidement une véritable “surchauffe” de l’animal, dont les ailes emmagasinent les rayons solaires, ainsi qu’un coût énergétique excessif.Ces données ont été obtenues par les chercheurs de l’Institut de recherche sur les animaux sauvages et en captivité (IZW), à Berlin, qui ont mesuré la température corporelle et les dépenses énergétiques de certains de ces animaux à diverses heures de la journée.Le 16 janvier 2011 à 16:43 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Genesio rues Lyons firsthalf performance

first_imgLyon manager Bruno Genesio felt that his side’s disappointing first-half display cost them a chance of possibly beating Montpellier away on SaturdayLes Gones only really came to life after the break with Nabil Fekir putting them in the lead with a 67th-minute goal as they looked to end 2018 with a five-point advantage over Montpellier.But the hosts, who had a goal ruled out by VAR, soon equalised through a great effort from Rubén Aguilar to settle the score at 1-1.The point left Lyon in third in Ligue 1 and two points above Montpellier in the final Champions League spot having played one more game.“We played two completely different halves,” Genesio told the club website.“We were already on vacation during the first half but had the chance to head into the break scoreless.“We were dominated in the duels, they were more aggressive. We played with more commitment, movement and verticality after the break.Colin Dagba, France,How Dagba become one of PSG’s regulars Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 21-year-old full-back Colin Dagba had a very difficult time to break into professional football, but now he’s one of PSG’s regular players.“We knew how to get back on track and dominate the game. It’s a good performance to draw in Montpellier.“But we can have regrets because we might’ve been able to get a better result by playing a better first half.“This is a good point… The record is satisfactory but we could have a few more points. We lost points foolishly in the league. We are in the top three.”Fekir added: “It’s a logical draw even if we are a little disappointed.“We came back with better intentions after the break… We could have finished the year better.“The season is still long. We need to keep the mindset that we had in the second half.”last_img read more

first_imgU.S. News & World Report has taken another step in its evolution away from the printed magazine. In a memo to staffers Friday, CEO Bill Holiber and editor Brian Kelly said the publication would cease printing a regular monthly magazine for subscribers. Instead, U.S. News will publish only a series of single-topic issues that will be available on newsstands and for “targeted distribution.”Those special issues will include the magazine’s college, graduate school, hospital and personal finance guides, as well as four newsstand special editions focusing on history, religion and “some of the other subjects that have been a success for us in the past.” According to the memo, which was published Friday by Romenesko, the December issue of U.S. News will be the last that’s sent to subscribers. The note said that the magazine’s print and digital edition subscriptions “will be filled by other publishers,” although those publishers were not identified.“All of us at U.S. News Media Group have been aggressively responding to the changing habits in the media marketplace, and these latest moves will accelerate our ability to grow our online businesses and position ourselves to take advantage of the emerging platforms for distributing information such as the iPad and Android tablets,” the memo says. “We’ll discuss this in more detail in meetings starting next week.” Once considered a distant third in the newsweekly category to Time and Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report announced in June 2008 that it would shift its frequency to biweekly in 2009. By November 2008, with print advertising in a precipitous decline, the U.S. News Media Group amended its plan, opting to go monthly instead.last_img read more
