‘Top four would be amazing first season for Lampard’

first_imgChelsea need to be realistic about their top four hopes after confirming the appointment of playing legend Frank Lampard as their new manager , according to ex-England international Jamie Redknapp.The caution comes as Lampard prepares for his first season in charge having lost the services of star plater Eden Hazard to Real Madrid earlier this summer.Though Christian Pulisic was signed in January and a permanent deal to sign loanee Mateo Kovacic was confirmed on July 1, Lampard is unable to make any further additions to his squad to the FIFA-imposed transfer ban that has been placed on the club.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare And ex-Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Redknapp, who is also Lampard’s cousin, believes qualifying for the Champions League would be a successful first season in charge for the 41-year-old.He told  Sky Sports : “The expectation will be to finish in the top four, but they’ve got to be realistic. I think there’ll be moments in the season where it will be a struggle, because of the Hazard effect.“It doesn’t matter what manager you have – [Pep] Guardiola, [Jose] Mourinho, anyone – they are going to struggle without that quality of player.”But if they were to finish in the top four that would be an amazing season considering the transfer embargo and everything else.”Chelsea finished third in the Premier League last season and won the Europa League but struggled for goals at times and will be unable to add to their firepower unless the ban is lifted.Redknapp believes that patience, a quality not often on shown at Stamford Bridge in recent years, will be required as Lampard makes the big step up from managing one season in the Championship with Derby County.Frank Lampard Chelsea“It’s a great move, not just for Frank but for Chelsea too,” he said. “It’s astute, you need someone who can stabilise the club somewhat when you’ve lost your best player and are under a transfer embargo.“They’ve got one of their own, the fans adore him. He’ll need time, there’ll be a lot of changes; you can’t bring in any personnel to replace a big star name like Eden Hazard. He’ll need to be given time, but he will – because he’s Frank Lampard.”Questions also remain about whether Lampard is being promoted too quickly having just one season as a manager under his belt, but Redknapp believes the timing is right given the circumstances.“I know he enjoyed his time at Derby. He had a great rapport with the fans but you can’t turn something like this down. “Everyone will have their opinions, some people will say it’s too early, others people will say it’s the right time, but for someone like Frank – he knows the game, he’s worked with some of the best managers in the world, and in terms of timing it is the right time.“The players will respect him, and patience will be the key,” added Redknapp. Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Indian womens Rugby team scripts history

first_imgThe Indian women’s rugby team scripted history by clinching their first-ever international 15-s victory against top ranked Singapore, and winning Bronze Medal at the Asia Women’s Div-1 Rugby 15-s Championship. The tournament was held in Manila, Philippines from June 17-23, 2019.It’s interesting to note that out of the total number of players in the team, five are students of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences. (Sumitra Nayak, Hupi Majhi, Rajani Sabar, Meerarani Hembram and Parbati Kisku). And it was in fact a penalty by KISS’s Sumitra Nayak in the dying minutes of the match that sealed the narrow victory for India. Indian Women Rugby team, including Sumitra, have got praise from various spheres for this victory. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainTo felicitate the winners and talk about their success stories, KIIT (Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology) and KISS organised a media interaction at Constitution Club of India, New Delhi, on June 28. Introducing Sumitra Nayak of KISS, Professor Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS described struggles of her life. “Sumitra is in the first year of graduation and comes from a poor family. Her father used to drink and beat her mother. One day someone suggested her mother to admit Sumitra in KISS, and since then Sumitra is staying and studying in our institute. Today, she has become a Rugby queen because of her hardwork and dedication,” he told Millennium Post during an exclusive interview. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma Award”For the first time they have defeated Singapore in Rugby. Our Rugby queen Sumitra Nayak has played a crucial role in this match. In the last 2 minute, she changed the scenario with her penalty stroke,” Samanta further added. While addressing the conference Sumitra stressed about her upbringings, objectives and inspirations of her life. “I come from a very poor family, and education, equality were always a distant dream for me. Everything happened because of Samanta sir and my mother. They are my inspiration and source of encouragement. They supported me throughout, taught me to dream big and work harder in order to achieve the desired goals. Sir has given us all facilities including education, sports at free of cost. Apart from that, international coaches from different countries were hired to train us for international matches.” Sumitra concluded her address by saying that she wants to balance both Rugby and education in her life as both are equally important to her. Like Sumitra, other four players from KISS also have an inspiring story behind them. Speaking on the occasion, one of the players, Meerarani Hembram, said that she wants to pursue her career in Rugby and she is working really hard for that. “We get all the infrastructure and facilities at our institute but still we want more support from India for this game as we have sacrificed so much”, said Meera. She further stressed about her journey and struggles in life. “After demise of my mother in 1999, my father sent me to an orphanage. In 2006, I got admitted in KISS and since then I am studying and playing Rugby here. I have played Rugby 7 times for India so far.” Talking about the initiatives where they not only provide shelter to the underpriviliged kids, but also help them walk on the path to success, Professor Samanta said, “We bring these poor tribal kids not only to nurture them but also to give proper education. Besides academics, they are equally motivated to play a sport. We have created huge infrastructure in the institute’s premises. We have also produced more than 5000 sports personnel who are now playing state, national and international level games – including Asian games, Olympics and Commonwealth. I feel very glad that our girls made India proud and Rugby more popular in India.” When asked about the future plans, Professor Samanta said that they are focusing on getting more medals for India in the upcoming international matches. KISS is trying its best to bring many unknown talents to the limelight and giving them international exposure since last 28 years. Due to dedicated and continuous efforts, today many students of KISS have been bringing laurels to Odisha as well as India in the field of sports and games. On this occasion, Professor Samanta also thanked all the members of Indian Women Rugby team along with officials of Indian Rugby Football Union (IRFU) and Odisha Rugby Football Association (ORFA).last_img read more

Russian rocket stage with toxic fuel to fall in Canadian Arctic

first_imgAnother Russian rocket stage likely to be holding highly toxic fuel is slated to splash down in environmentally sensitive waters of the Canadian Arctic on Wednesday.Documents on the website of the European Space Agency say the Cold-War-era missile repurposed for satellites is to lift off from a Russian launching pad. It will drop its second stage into Baffin Bay, outside Canada’s territorial waters, but within ocean it claims to regulate and control.The launch vessel, a former SS-19 intercontinental ballistic missile, is powered by hydrazine — a fuel so toxic and carcinogenic that almost every space program in the world, including Russia’s, no longer uses it.The spent rocket stage is expected to contain up to a tonne of unused hydrazine.It is expected to fall into the North Water Polynya, one of the most productive and biodiverse areas of the Arctic and heavily used by Inuit hunters. The waters are considered so important to mammals such as walrus and whales that Inuit from Canada and Greenland seek to manage it as a protected area.Eleven such splashdowns have taken place over the last 15 years, said Michael Byers, a professor of international law at the University of British Columbia.Although the rocket is Russian, the launch is a commercial service paid for by the European Space Agency.“The ESA prides itself on being the most environmentally friendly space agency in the world,” said Byers.“One of the ironies here is that the satellite is a cutting-edge climate- change monitoring satellite. It’s of central importance for environmental monitoring.”Agency officials have said that unused fuel is burned up on re-entry, but studies done at launch sites in Russia suggest some fuel does reach the surface.Previous launches have drawn wide protests. The federal government has filed diplomatic protests with Russia and the government of Nunavut has argued the launches put Inuit at needless risk.The Inuit Circumpolar Commission has also objected in the past to possible contamination of pristine waters.The federal government did not immediately say if it has filed a protest over the upcoming launch.Byers points out that while Canada may have little influence over Russia, it is an associate member of the European Space Agency.“We have, or should have, considerable influence over the ESA,” he said. “I see no evidence that it was exercised.”— Follow @row1960 on Twitterlast_img read more

Samples show dust from BC pipeline blast not a health threat Enbridge

first_imgPRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The company that owns the natural gas pipeline that ruptured and burned one week ago in central British Columbia, says the dust that settled on homes near the blast site does not pose a health threat.The latest post on the Enbridge website says earth sampling near Prince George shows mineral and metal composition is well below provincial and federal standards for urban and residential areas.Enbridge also says construction of an access road to the damaged line continues and repair crews may be able to reach the scene later this week, although the company has already said there is no timeline to return the 91-centimetre pipeline to service. FortisBC, the company that distributes natural gas to about one million homes and businesses in B.C., is urging customers to limit non-essential use of the fuel while the line is shut off and a second, smaller pipeline is running at reduced capacity.The Vancouver Park Board says it is doing its part to reduce consumption by turning down thermostats in the parts of city-run buildings where there will be a minimal impact to the public, such as staffing areas and common areas.Park board spokeswoman Margo Harper says heat in childcare centres, swimming pools and the on-demand heaters at ice rinks will not be affected.last_img read more

November crudebyrail exports set new record despite slower growth pace

Companies in this story: (TSX:SU)The Canadian Press CALGARY — The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports from Canada grew at a slower pace in November, but still reached a new record high.Canada exported more than 330,000 barrels per day of oil, up about one per cent from October’s total of 327,000 bpd, and more than double the 148,000 bpd moved in November 2017.The slower November growth came after double-digit month-over-month growth in August, September and October.Full export pipelines were blamed for a glut of oil in Western Canada last fall that led to large discounts for bitumen-blend Western Canadian Select crude compared with New York benchmark West Texas Intermediate.Those differentials have narrowed since the government of Alberta announced last month it would impose crude oil production curtailments of 325,000 bpd starting Jan. 1.The province has also promised to buy as many as 80 locomotives and 7,000 rail tankers to help move oil to markets starting in late 2019.Oilsands giant Suncor Energy Inc. has warned that the tighter differentials have made crude-by-rail shipping “uneconomic.”Analysts estimate it costs about US$20 per barrel to ship Canadian oil by rail to markets on the U.S. Gulf Coast, so discounts that are lower than that make the option less attractive. read more

Harsh winter takes a toll on CN Rails revenue gains during first

MONTREAL — The Canadian National Railway Co. saw first-quarter profits fall slightly short of analysts’ expectations, as operating costs caused by harsh winter weather worked to offset the company’s revenue increase.The country’s largest railway says it earned $848 million on an adjusted basis or $1.17 per diluted share in the quarter ended March 31.That falls just shy of analysts’ forecast of $1.18 per diluted share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon, though the number marks a 17 per cent increase from the same period in 2018.CN Rail’s revenues rose 11 per cent year over year to $3.54 billion last quarter, but operating expenses climbed 13 per cent to $2.46 billion.Net income increased six per cent to $768 million from $741 million.The company says extreme winter conditions hurt its bottom line as operating costs shot up in February and March.Companies in this story: (TSX:CNR)The Canadian Press read more

Central African Republic amid rising violence Ban says perpetrators will be held

A statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said that the further deterioration of the security situation in the country has resulted in additional fatalities, a high number of injured, and increased hardship for the population. “The Secretary-General condemns in the strongest possible terms all acts of violence against civilians, and against international forces working in the Central African Republic to re-establish peace and order. He stresses the fundamental importance of protecting civilians at all times,” said the statement. Thousands of people are believed to have been killed, and 2.2 million, about half the population of CAR, need humanitarian aid as a result of the conflict that began in December 2012, when mainly Muslim Séléka rebels launched attacks.More than 650,000 people are still internally displaced, and over 290,000 have fled to neighbouring countries in search of refuge from the conflict, which has taken on increasingly sectarian overtones as mainly Christian militias known as anti-Balaka (anti-machete) have taken up arms.Following her recent visit to the country, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said the inter-communal hatred between Christians and Muslims have reached “a terrifying level,” and called on the international community to scale up aid efforts for those affected.In today’s statement, the Secretary-General reminded all those who are involved in spreading the violence, including those directly or indirectly supporting or otherwise facilitating the actions of armed groups, that they will be held accountable for their actions and brought to justice.In this regard, he stressed the importance of quickly establishing a list of individuals who act to undermine peace, stability and security in CAR, as called for by the Security Council in a resolution adopted late last year. That resolution also authorized an African-led and French-backed peacekeeping force to quell the spiralling violence in CAR, and requested the establishment of an international commission of inquiry to investigate reports of human rights abuses by all parties since 1 January 2013. “The Secretary-General reaffirms the full commitment of the United Nations to help the Central African Republic emerge from the ongoing crisis and to build peace,” the statement added. read more

Ohio State mens gymnastics finishes 3rd at nationals Johnson wins high bar

The OSU men’s gymnastics team poses for a photo after the NCAA championships on April 16 at St. John Arena. Credit: Luke Swartz | Lantern reporterThe No. 3 Ohio State men’s gymnastics team played host to the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics National Championships over the weekend at St. John Arena. The event, which spanned two nights, was broken into two qualifying sessions Friday and the finals the following evening.The Buckeyes came into the weekend boasting the reigning Big Ten Gymnast of the Year in redshirt sophomore Sean Melton, the Big Ten Coach of the Year in Rustam Sharipov and the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in Alec Yoder.Friday night’s qualifier pitted the Buckeyes against five of the nation’s top schools and individual gymnasts from non-qualifying schools. OSU (433.400) finished in second place as a team on the night, advancing along with Friday night’s winner, Stanford (434.350), and third-place Illinois (432.050). Those three joined Oklahoma, Penn State and Minnesota, which qualified in the first session of the day.On Saturday night, the qualifying teams and athletes participated in the championship portion. After an up-and-down night, which saw Buckeyes bouncing around the team standings, the hosts eventually fought their way back and cemented themselves in the standings, taking third place on the night with a score of 433.150.The third-place finish was the best finish for OSU in the NCAA finals since 2005. The Buckeyes finished only behind No. 2 Stanford and No. 1 Oklahoma, which clinched its second consecutive title.“The guys never give up, so this is what it is all about,” Sharipov said. “This year we (were) Big Ten champions (and) third in the NCAAs, it’s great.”Senior and team captain Alex Johnson took home the national title on the high bar (15.200), his first career national title in his final collegiate event. “It means the world to me, but honestly coming in, I was more worried about the team.” Johnson said. “My coach always preaches that if you go in with team goals in mind, individual accolades will come, and that’s what happened tonight, so I’m ecstatic.”Having had a strong season, the Buckeyes felt they could have put forth a stronger performance in the NCAA Championships, but Yoder said he realizes that finishing in third place is nothing to be disappointed with.“This is so much fun, of course it’s a bummer that we didn’t come out on top like we wanted,” Yoder said. “How close this team is to each other (and) the amount of passion, pride and excellence in the gym is great. I know we have what it takes to be the best.”Individually, six different Buckeyes were recognized with All-American honors, the most OSU has ever had at an NCAA championship.Johnson received his first while Yoder brought in three awards in his first NCAA championship. Melton added two All-American awards with sophomore Seth Delbridge, sophomore Alex Wilson and senior Emeric Quade receiving their first All-American honors. read more

Less cutbacks less tax increases needed for Budget 2015 Noonan

first_imgBut it’s too early to say yet by how much.A memo was presented to Cabinet this morning, outlining the Government’s approach to Budget 2015.“The over-arching target is to get the deficit below three per cent and we’re on track to do that,” Noonan said.Last year’s Budget was built on a deficit of 4.8 per cent — and the way things are going after six months of the year has gone by, we’ll beat that target so we should be able to get under 3 per cent as planned.Howlin added that the Government would “certainly” not have to make “an adjustment of a €2 billion scale that was forecast in last year’s budget”.“The economy has grown. The tax revenue has increased. The number of unemployed has fallen,” the Public Expenditure Minister said.“So these are all good auguries. They’re assistances.”Originally posted 3:00pmMary Coughlan: A lot of people would like me to go back into politics – but I’m not sure Left Alliance?

Greece reaches agreement with lenders

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece and its lenders agreed late on Monday night the measures needed to unlock another 12 billion euros in bailout loans but there will be no letup for the government as it has to pass the reforms through Parliament by Friday and immediately begin discussing the next set of prior actions.The key element in the latest agreement between Athens and the institutions is a settlement on the home repossessions. The two sides have agreed that any homeowners whose primary residence is valued at less than 170,000 euros and who have an annual income of 8,180 euros if they are single, 13,917 if they are a couple, and rising by 3,361 euros for each child (up to two children) will not be in danger of having their homes repossessed.This is thought to cover roughly one in four mortgage payers. Some 350,000 of 1.2 million mortgages are not being serviced on time at the moment.However, a second category of homeowners has been added to those who could be in line for protection. Those owning homes with a value up to 230,000 euros and an annual income of less than 35,086 euros for a couple with two children will be able to reach an agreement with their banks, who will have the right to take into account other wealth criteria.Greece and its lenders were not able to reach an agreement on the remaining nonperforming loans (NPLs) and under what conditions banks will be able to sell them to distressed debt funds.This will be just one of several issues that the government will have to start discussing straight away with the institutions so they can prepare the list of prior actions to secure the release of another 1 billion euros in bailout funding.The current set of prior actions are due to be passed through Parliament on Thursday, which would allow the Euro Working Group, which meets on Friday to allow the release of a 2-billion-euro subtranche and another 10 billion euros set aside for bank recapitalization.The vote in Parliament on Thursday is likely to be the first serious test for the government as the leftist-led coalition had promised to protect primary residences.The fact that authorities moved from pledging to shield virtually all first homes from repossessions to guaranteeing protection for only a quarter is certain to test the loyalty of coalition lawmakers.Although seeking to put a positive spin on the development, sources close to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras privately expressed concerns that coalition MPs did not defend the agreement.Despite their concerns, the general sense in the ranks of the government was that the bill will pass through Parliament, and that the government’s majority in the House will not be put at risk, as the measures are directly linked to the rescue of Greece’s banks.Still, it quite possible that a few MPs from either SYRIZA or right-wing Independent Greeks (ANEL) will vote against the foreclosures.ANEL legislator Nikos Nikolopoulos, who has distanced himself from the government in the past few votes, said on Tuesday that he would vote against the bill. ANEL leader Panos Kammenos is to convene his party MPs on Wednesday to seek to keep them in line.Opposition parties have indicated that they will vote down the bill too, at least the provision on foreclosures, meaning that the government will have to secure as many coalition MPs as possible.New Democracy on Tuesday accused the government of “political fraud” for going back on promises to protect all primary homes.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

The test uses a thin, flexible scope that passes through the mouth and into the lungs to remove a small piece of tissue for evaluation. The test is commonly used because it can provide a rapid cancer diagnosis without the need for an invasive open procedure.“The EBUS-TBFNA procedure is a diagnostic tool for lung cancer that yields proven results,” said Lester Layfield, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the MU School of Medicine and lead author of the study. “The test categorizes the results as ‘benign,’ ‘non-diagnostic,’ ‘atypical,’ ‘suspicious for malignancy’ or ‘malignant.’ Our goal with this study was to understand the risk of cancer associated with each category.”Layfield’s research team evaluated information from 136 patients who received a diagnosis following the EBUS-TBFNA procedure. The same patients then had an open surgical procedure to confirm whether the tissue was cancerous or benign.Layfield’s research team found that the EBUS-TBFNA tool provided an accurate positive diagnosis of lung cancer 84 percent of the time and an accurate negative diagnosis of lung cancer 68 percent of the time. The study also provided the research team with an estimation of malignancy risks for each category, which in the future could help doctors offer patients enhanced care and counseling, Layfield said.The study, “Malignancy Risk Associated with the EBUS-FNA Diagnostic Categories Nondiagnostic, Benign, Atypical, Suspicious for Malignancy, and Malignant for Mediastinal Lymph Node Aspirate Specimens,” recently was published in the Journal of the American Society of Cytopathology.For more information: www.jascyto.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Lung Cancer | October 26, 2015 New Data May Help Physicians Better Understand Risk of Lung Cancer Researchers confirm predictive capabilities of minimally invasive procedure that offers high accuracy for positive and negative diagnosis News | Artificial Intelligence | May 20, 2019 AI Detects Unsuspected Lung Cancer in Radiology Reports, Augments Clinical Follow-up Digital Reasoning announced results from its automated radiology report analytics research.
