Being in a home game and thinking that it would be comfortable I chose to line up players with more tables. It has helped me to save time.Not being satisfied what you mean?In the second we did some things well and controlled the game, but there are many things to improve and it is better to do it since the victory. I am not satisfied only with the result. We have rushed, we have lost the ball very fast and when there are losses there are problems.What do you prefer for the draw?I have no preference. I buy it at home, but whatever comes we will face it with the same seriousness and energy.How have you seen De Jong?Frenkie is a very receptive player. It puts a lot of interest in understanding things. We send you to interior areas and it does very good things and others will understand you better. He has made an extraordinary match just like Arthur.Would a Classic now be too soon?If it touches we will face it with guarantees, we will surely give the level.How important is the strategy game?We do not spend much time preparing strategies in the field, but on the board. Clément’s movement has been extraordinary and as they are so good we are right. We do not rehearse in the field.How will you use Dembélé?It has a specialist conditions. We will try to get the most out of it. You can give us a lot where you play. He feels more comfortable outside and will give us a lot. We expect the performance to be continuous. Quique Setién appeared before the media in the press room after the overwhelming defeat of Barcelona by 5 to 0 against Leganés in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey. Why did you return to the 4-3-3 drawing?We wanted to set five players of them. They also incorporate their sides and we could defend better. We have done very well in the first 20-25 minutes. It is true that they could harm us, but we have done many things well but I am not entirely satisfied. We found the goal, but we lost control of the game and gave them a lot of life. It was when we had to control the game.Do you find it difficult to know that you will not sign a forward?I will be calm. There is a risk of injury and it cannot be controlled. I am used to working with what I have. It could not be, the market has not given anything and we will also recover Dembélé, who is going to leave.Will the defense of three return?It may be seen again. You have to analyze the matches. The drawings will change many times, even during the match. I almost changed it to half a game today.Why such a starting lineup?
After winning the junior title at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships in St Croix, United States Virgin Islands, in July, Evans was invited to participate in the prestigious Duke of York Young Champions Trophy. The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy is an international 54-hole stroke play golf tournament for young men and women who are either current holders of their Under-18 national championship or have won some other major golfing event in the preceding year. The inaugural tournament was played in 2001 with 12 players from six countries. Since then, The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy has expanded and now draws players from across the world. It aims to promote the development of junior golf, encourage competitiveness and friendship between individual champions, while providing them with an opportunity to play on Open venue courses against their peers. The event counts towards the World Amateur Golf Ranking. EACH time Romaine Evans drove the ball from the ladies’ tee at the par-five 14th hole, the slender Tacky High School fifth-former drew “ooohhs and ahhhs” at the Travel Weekly US Travel Agents Golf Tournament at the Sandals Golf and Country Club in Ocho Rios. Fresh from the September 9-11 Duke of York Young Champions Trophy at Prince’s Golf Course in England, Evans was displaying his driving skills in a Sandals Foundation initiative. Competitors at the weekend travel agents’ tournament contributed a token US$10 to have the youngster and others tee off from the par-five hole, on their behalf. The contribution will go towards the Sandals Foundation, which continues to nurture young Jamaican golfing talent such as Evans and his tee partner, Zandre Roye, two of 23 young players adopted by the programme. Many of the participants in the programme are from in and around the Exchange area of Ocho Rios where Evans lives. However, coach Bill Williams said some travel from as far as Kingston and St Andrew on Saturdays. Evans placed 51st out of 60 participants, but said he learnt invaluable lessons on the greens at Prince’s Golf Course in what he described as his “biggest-ever tournament”. “We played three rounds over three days. It’s a big tournament. Rory McIlroy, the world’s number-one player, was there playing in 2004. Tiger Woods also went one year but couldn’t play because he was too old then,” said Evans, who plans to pursue tertiary studies in electrical installation or mechanics on graduating from Tacky High. “I had never played on a links course before. Their roughs are really rough,” he said, describing the characteristics of links courses, the oldest style of golf courses, first developed in Britain. Links courses are typically characterised by dunes and sandy soil unsuitable for the rolling greens associated with courses elsewhere in the world. “Their roughs have tall grass. It was really hard to get off those roughs. We don’t play in that type of high grass in Jamaica, so I took home that experience with me,” Evans said. However, his next challenge is not on the golf course. “The next step is to get those CXCs then college, overseas, to further my golfing. There are fewer chances in Jamaica to get on the PGA Tour,” he said, pointing to his ambitions of one day going pro. invaluable lessons international championships
BLACKSBURG, Va. – A gunman opened fire in a Virginia Tech dorm and then, two hours later, shot up a classroom building across campus Monday, killing 32 people in the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history. The gunman committed suicide, bringing the death toll to 33. Students bitterly complained that there were no public-address announcements on campus after the first burst of gunfire. Many said the first word they received from the university was an e-mail more than two hours into the rampage – around the time the gunman struck again. Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said authorities believed that the shooting at the dorm was a domestic dispute and mistakenly thought the gunman had fled the campus. “We had no reason to suspect any other incident was going to occur,” he said. He defended the university’s handling of the tragedy, saying: “We can only make decisions based on the information you had on the time. You don’t have hours to reflect on it.” Investigators offered no motive for the attack. The gunman’s name was not immediately released, and it was not known if he was a student. The shootings spread panic and confusion on campus. Witnesses reporting students jumping out the windows of a classroom building to escape the gunfire. SWAT team members with helmets, flak jackets and assault rifles swarmed over the campus. Students and faculty members carried out some of the wounded themselves, without waiting for ambulances to arrive. A student used his cell-phone camera to record the sound of shots echoing through the stone classroom building. The massacre took place at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus, beginning at about 7:15 a.m. at West Ambler Johnston, a coed dormitory that houses 895 people, and continuing at least two hours later at Norris Hall, an engineering building about a half-mile away, authorities said. Two people were killed in a dormitory room, and 31 others were killed in the classroom building, including the gunman, police said. “Today the university was struck with a tragedy that we consider of monumental proportions,” Steger said. “The university is shocked and indeed horrified.” Steger emphasized that the university closed off the dorm after the first attack and decided to rely on e-mail and other electronic means to notify members of the university, but with 11,000 people driving onto campus first thing in the morning, it was difficult to get the word out. He said that before the e-mail went out, the university began telephoning resident advisers in the dorms to notify them and sent people to knock on doors to spread the word. Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum would not say how many weapons the gunman carried. But a law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was incomplete, said that the gunman had two pistols and multiple clips of ammunition. Flinchum said that some doors in the classroom building had been chained shut from the inside. Police said they were still investigating the shooting at the dorm when they got word of gunfire at the classroom building. Some students bitterly questioned why the gunman was able to strike a second time. “What happened today, this was ridiculous,” student Jason Piatt told CNN. “While they send out that e-mail, 20 more people got killed.” Students and Laura Wedin, a student programs manager at Virginia Tech, said the first notification they got of the shootings came in an e-mail at 9:26 a.m., more than two hours after the first shooting. The e-mail had few details. It read: “A shooting incident occurred at West Amber Johnston earlier this morning. Police are on the scene and are investigating.” The message warned students to be cautious and contact police about anything suspicious. Student Maurice Hiller said he went to a 9 a.m. class two buildings away from the engineering building, and no warnings were coming over the outdoor public address system on campus at the time. Everett Good, junior, said of the lack of warning: “I’m trying to figure that out. Someone’s head is definitely going to roll over that.” “We were kept in the dark a lot about exactly what was going on,” said Andrew Capers Thompson, a 22-year-old graduate student from Walhalla, S.C. At an evening news conference, the university president and police chief said they were still investigating whether the shootings at the dorm and the classroom building were related. But earlier in the day, the chief said he believed there was only one gunman, and he was dead. Edmund Henneke, associate dean of engineering, said he was in the classroom building and he and colleagues had just read the e-mail advisory regarding the first shooting and were discussing it when he heard gunfire. He said moments later SWAT team members rushed them downstairs “but the doors were chained and padlocked from the inside.” They left the building through a construction area that had not been locked. Henneke said it is unfair to criticize the school over the delay in warning. “People are absolutely making too much of that. You do what you can,” Henneke said. “We have a huge campus. You have to close down a small town and you can’t close down every way in or out.” At least 26 people were being treated at three area hospitals for gunshot wounds and other injuries, authorities said. Their exact conditions were not disclosed, but at least one was sent to a trauma center and six were in surgery, authorities said. Up until Monday, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history was in Killeen, Texas, in 1991, when George Hennard plowed his pickup truck into a Luby’s Cafeteria and shot 23 people to death, then himself. The massacre Monday took place almost eight years to the day after the Columbine High bloodbath near Littleton, Colo. On April 20, 1999, two teenagers killed 12 fellow students and a teacher before taking their own lives. Previously, the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history was a rampage that took place in 1966 at the University of Texas at Austin, where Charles Whitman climbed the clock tower and opened fire with a rifle from the 28th-floor observation deck. He killed 16 people before he was shot to death by police. Founded in 1872, Virginia Tech is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia, about 160 miles west of Richmond. With more than 25,000 full-time students, it has the state’s largest full-time student population. The school is best known for its engineering school and its powerhouse Hokies football team. The rampage took place on a brisk spring day, with snow flurries swirling around the campus. The campus is centered around the Drill Field, a grassy field where military cadets – who now represent a fraction of the student body – practice. The dorm and the classroom building are on opposites sides of the Drill Field. A gasp could be heard at a campus news conference early in the day when the police chief announced that at least 20 people had been killed. Previously, only one person was thought to have been killed. A White House spokesman said. President Bush was horrified by the rampage and offered his prayers to the victims and the people of Virginia. “The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed,” spokeswoman Dana Perino said. After the shootings, all entrances to the campus were closed, and classes were canceled through Tuesday. The university set up a meeting place for families to reunite with their children. It also made counselors available and planned an assembly for Tuesday at the basketball arena. After the shooting began, students were told to stay inside away from the windows. Aimee Kanode, a freshman from Martinsville, said the shooting happened on the fourth floor of West Ambler Johnston dormitory, one floor above her room. Kanode’s resident assistant knocked on her door about 8 a.m. to notify students to stay put. Police said there had been bomb threats on campus over the past two weeks by authorities but said they have not determined a link to the shootings. It was second time in less than a year that the campus was closed because of a shooting. Last August, the opening day of classes was canceled and the campus closed when an escaped jail inmate allegedly killed a hospital guard off campus and fled to the Tech area. A sheriff’s deputy involved in the manhunt was killed on a trail just off campus. The accused gunman, William Morva, faces capital murder charges.
His long season officially ends on Monday in Volgograd in a largely meaningless match when the eliminated pair of Egypt and Saudi Arabia face off to administer the last rites to their sorry campaigns.It could be argued Salah’s season ended 30 days earlier, 1,300 kilometres (800 miles) to the west in Kiev on May 26, when Salah was slammed to the turf by Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, causing a painful separation of his left shoulder.His spring of hope turned to a summer of despair as soon as he had to leave the pitch in the 29th minute of the Champions League final. Without him, Liverpool lost 3-1.Salah returned to action for the first time in three weeks against Russia on Tuesday but was a shadow of the player who dazzled for Liverpool last season, scoring 44 goals.The 26-year-old took a full part in training in Volgograd on Sunday and will play against Saudi Arabia, AFP Sport understands, because he wants to lead Egypt to a first ever win at the World Cup.Mohamed Salah injured his shoulder in this challenge by Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos © AFP / GENYA SAVILOVEgyptian Football Association president Hany Abo Rida denied Liverpool had put pressure on them to leave Salah out of the final game.“No we did not receive anything from Liverpool. When the player is with the national team, it is for us to decide,” he told AFP before they left their training base in Grozny, in the once war-torn republic of Chechnya, to fly to Volgograd.Salah has remained tight-lipped throughout the tournament, refusing all media requests with his only comment to AFP being “life is good” after he received honorary citizenship of Chechnya from the republic’s controversial leader Ramzan Kadyrov.– ‘Hugely important’ –Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov gave Salah honorary citizenship © AFP / KARIM JAAFARQuestions will be asked as to whether the Premier League’s top scorer last season was fit enough to be at the World Cup.But it would have been football suicide for Hector Cuper to have omitted the “Egyptian Messi” from his squad.Cuper chose not to risk Salah in the 1-0 defeat against Uruguay, a calculated gamble that backfired in a weak-looking Group A.Russia swept into the second match against Egypt riding a wave of confidence and national pride after thrashing the Saudis 5-0 and suddenly Egypt were at the point of no return and Salah was compelled into action.Salah was ineffective but scored, confidently, from the penalty spot. It was too little, too late — by then the Russians were 3-0 up and into the last 16.“There’s no doubt that Salah is hugely important to this team as he has been in the Premier League for Liverpool,” Cuper told reporters Sunday.“If he had been able to play up front in the first match it would have been nice, but we don’t have a crystal ball to know if it would have made the difference it is hard to know.“I prefer not to focus on a single player. We are talking about a team where all the players are important.”Try telling that to Egyptian fans who had hung their hopes on their country’s most famous export since Tutankhamun. A first World Cup win against Saudi Arabia will be scant consolation.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Was Mohamed Salah fit enough to even be at the World Cup? © AFP / NICOLAS ASFOURIVOLGOGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 25 – The 2017-18 season has been the best of times, and the worst of times for Mohamed Salah.After a stunning debut season for Liverpool, Salah was elevated to Ballon D’Or contention, now all he has left to play for is a chance to avoid a World Cup wooden spoon.

The California attorney general and Los Angeles city attorney said they would file a lawsuit today against Mattel Inc., Toys R Us Inc. and 18 other companies over products that they say contain “unlawful quantities of lead.” The move follows major recalls of toys, lunchboxes, children’s jewelry and other goods during the last year by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington. The suit, to be filed in Alameda County Superior Court under California’s Proposition 65 law, would force manufacturers and retailers to adopt procedures for inspecting products to make sure they are safe. Barring that, they would be required to warn consumers that the items contained chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre El Segundo-based Mattel, the lead defendant in the lawsuit, said it welcomed the attorney general’s involvement and added that it would be helpful for the entire toy industry. Proposition 65, a successful ballot initiative known as the Safe Drinking Water Enforcement Act of 1986, allows the state to collect civil penalties of as much as $2,500 for each of the millions of contaminated items. “Obviously, they do not want to put warnings. They are going to eliminate the lead or eliminate the product,” said Attorney General Jerry Brown. “But, going forward, we want to prevent these kind of things from happening.” Brown, whose suit was joined by Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, said he expected the companies to settle the lawsuit by agreeing to “conditions such as testing or putting independent monitors in foreign countries.”

McEniff believes McGuinness has been plotting for Dublin all year.Former All-Ireland winning manager Brian McEniff has said Jim McGuinness has been plotting to face Dublin all season, and will have a Plan A, B and C when the two sides lock horns at Croke Park, on Sunday. McEniff who famously brought Sam back to the hills for the first time ever in 1992, admitted Dublin will provide formidable opposition but believes Donegal are capable of springing a surprise like they did in 1992.Many GAA pundits and commentators have made Donegal rank outsiders to get a win against Dublin on Sunday, while some bookmakers in the capital are offering odds of 10-1 on a Donegal win. However, McEniff believes McGuinness has the game-plan to frustrate the Dubs and the quality in the forward line to hurt them.Although the Bundoran native did admit the form of Colm McFadden worried him ahead of Sunday’s game.He told the Irish Daily Mirror, “Colm McFadden hasn’t been playing that well all year, but he has been isolated up front which isn’t easy especially when team double up on you.“But I think Jim will have a different strategy for the match this weekend, he’s been preparing from the start of the year, like the players, with a view to playing an All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin. “They knew that was further down the line, but it was always envisaged that the two would meet at this stage, so they won’t be unprepared for facing them that’s for sure.“We haven’t hit the form we need to beat Dublin so far this year, but I’m sure it’s there.McEniff admitted though if he was the manager he would approach the game in a different way to McGuinness, but added that he genuinely believed they could win the game although he thinks Dublin are on of the best sides that’s been around for a long time.“He won’t be coming with just a plan A, he’ll have a plan B and C, because Dublin are an awesome team, there’s no point saying otherwise.“I would expect Donegal have a good chance of winning on Sunday but then I’m one of those sort of people.

Redditers pitched softballs and hard alike, but the fact that the leader of the Free World participated in the site’s chat confirms mainstream success and reach for Reddit.
