Man City set cup record with 9-0 thrashing of Burton

first_imgManchester City’s lopsided win over Burton Albion on Wednesday set a record for English cup competitions, with Pep Guardiola’s high-flying club rolling to a 9-0 win in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. Gabriel Jesus netted four goals at the Etihad Stadium, with Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez all joining him on the scoresheet. The nine-goal spread was the largest margin of victory ever for an English cup semi-final match, dating all the way back to the first ever FA Cup during the 1871-72 season.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? 9 – Manchester City’s 9-0 win against Burton Albion is the largest ever margin of victory in the semi-finals of an English cup competition. Answer. https://t.co/4Ij0UHu2HI — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 9, 2019 Goals have been remarkably easy to come by for Manchester City over the past two games. Guardiola’s side destroyed Championship club Rotherham 7-0 in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, advancing to face Burnley in the next round.  By scoring at least seven goals in consecutive games, City reached a scoring feat on Wednesday that hasn’t been achieved by an English side in more than 51 years.7 – Manchester City are the first English league side to score at least seven goals in consecutive games in all competitions since Don Revie’s Leeds United back in October 1967. Heaven. #CarabaoCup pic.twitter.com/vniTiD8jQm — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 9, 2019 Don Revie’s Leeds United were the last English league side to turn the trick, which they did in October 1967 when they topped Spora Luxembourg 9-0 before defeating Chelsea 7-0. For Guardiola, it was his joint-largest margin of victory as a manager, alongside Barcelona’s 9-0 thrashing of L’Hospitalet in a Copa del Rey match in December 2011.Wednesday’s game was also the first time that City managed nine goals in a single game since November 1987, when they defeated Huddersfield Town 10-1 in a second-tier match. For their part, Burton’s 9-0 defeat was the heaviest loss in League Cup competition since Fulham fell 10-0 to Liverpool in September 1986. 1986 – Burton Albion’s 9-0 defeat is the heaviest League Cup defeat by any side since Liverpool beat Fulham 10-0 back in September 1986, and is the largest ever margin of defeat in the semi-final of the competition. Gap. #CarabaoCup — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 9, 2019 Unfortunately for Burton, this tie isn’t over. The two sides will meet again in the second leg on January 23, when more records could fall by the wayside.last_img read more

Debate rages over George Michaels unreleased music as boyfriend posts poignant lost

first_imgAs Mr Fawaz shared the song with the words “my baby”, one fan said the unfinished Trojan Souls album: “What a gift that would be right now…such remarkable music, such a remarkable man…no words.”But she was quickly rebuked by another admirer, who said: “I disagree really. George obviously never wanted us to hear it.” When one fan suggested that a previously-unheard track should be released to raise money for Michael’s preferred charities, Ridgeley tweeted: “No, #GM [George Michael] controlled all his output. I, nor anyone else have the right to transgress that principle.”The Wham! star also protested against a planned campaign by a tabloid newspaper to turn over the profit from sales of Careless Whisper to charity, arguing that another of Michael’s solo songs would better represent his body of work. Some fans immediately asked for the song, which was already available online on sites including YouTube, to get an official release, calling for it to be properly edited to share with the world in his memory.But others, including Michael’s Wham! collaborator Andrew Ridgeley, have urged fans to enjoy the material Michael had authorised in his lifetime.

Shire pharmaceuticals is our share tip of the week five reasons to

first_imgEdmund Shing explains why now is a great time to invest in UK pharmaceutical firm Shire.1) FTSE 100 healthcare companyShire is a FTSE 100 company (UK code: SHP) and is in the healthcare sector.2) Drug makerIt develops and markets drugs such as Adderall and Vyvanse for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), particularly in children.3) Generating growthThe company is generating growth not only from the development and marketing of drugs, but also by acquiring other drugs companies. It is in the process at the moment of buying rival company Baxalta, which will drive profit growth going forwards.4) Potential takeover targetIt has also been the target of an acquisition by other companies. In the past American pharma giant Pfizer tried to buy it by bidding over £50 a share. Its worth noting that todays share price for Shire is only £36, nearly 30% below that bid price.5) Terrific valueShire is a cheap growth company.

Poor sleep triggers loneliness social rejection

first_imgPoor sleep can hamper your social life, say scientists who found that sleep-deprived people feel lonelier and less inclined to engage with others, avoiding close contact in much the same way as people with social anxiety.Researchers at the University of California (UC) Berkeley in the US, have found that alienating vibe makes sleep-deprived individuals more socially unattractive to others. Moreover, well-rested people feel lonely after just a brief encounter with a sleep-deprived person, potentially triggering a viral contagion of social isolation. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe findings, published in the journal Nature Communications, are the first to show a two-way relationship between sleep loss and becoming socially isolated, shedding new light on a global loneliness epidemic.Researchers found that brain scans of sleep-deprived people as they viewed video clips of strangers walking toward them showed powerful social repulsion activity in neural networks that are typically activated when humans feel their personal space is being invaded. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSleep loss also blunted activity in brain regions that normally encourage social engagement.To gauge the social effects of poor sleep, researchers conducted a series of intricate experiments using such tools as fMRI brain imaging, standardised loneliness measures, videotaped simulations and surveys.First, researchers tested the social and neural responses of 18 healthy young adults following a normal night’s sleep and a sleepless night.The participants viewed video clips of individuals with neutral expressions walking toward them. When the person on the video got too close, they pushed a button to stop the video, which recorded how close they allowed the person to get.As predicted, sleep-deprived participants kept the approaching person at a significantly greater distance away – between 18 and 60 per cent further back – than when they had been well-rested.Participants also had their brains scanned as they watched the videos of individuals approaching them.In sleep-deprived brains, researchers found heightened activity in a neural circuit known as the “near space network,” which is activated when the brain perceives potential incoming human threats.In contrast, another circuit of the brain that encourages social interaction, called the “theory of mind” network, was shut down by sleep deprivation, worsening the problem.For the online section of the study, more than 1,000 observers recruited via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk marketplace viewed videotapes of study participants discussing commonplace opinions and activities.The observers were unaware that the subjects had been deprived of sleep and rated each of them based on how lonely they appeared, and whether they would want to interact socially with them.Time and again, they rated study participants in the sleep-deprived state as lonelier and less socially desirable.To test whether sleep-loss-induced alienation is contagious, researchers asked observers to rate their own levels of loneliness after watching videos of study participants. They were surprised to find that otherwise healthy observers felt alienated after viewing just a 60-second clip of a lonely person.Through a standardised survey researchers found that the amount of sleep a person got from one night to the next accurately predicted how lonely and unsociable they would feel from one day to the next.last_img read more

Forest fires in state significantly decreased this year

first_imgChetumal, Q. R. — The forest fire season in Quintana Roo has been a much slower one compared to last year, say officials.Rafael León Negrete, manager of the Comisión Nacional Forestal, says that so far this year, the state has registered a total of 5,278 hectares, a decrese of 44.5 percent from January to May of last year.He says that last year by this time, the state had already fought 9,502 hectares of burned areas.León Negrete explained that only five of the state’s 11 municipalities have recorded forest fires this year. They have come from José María Morelos, Solidaridad, Cozumel, Benito Juárez and Isla Mujeres adding that Bacalar has the most fires.He says that of the 35 fought forest fires, Bacalar has already had 15 this year, losing 2,590 hectares of forest and vegetation.Recent rains along with preventative training has helped reduce the amount of fires this year, he says.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Affordable Care Act requires private insurers to fully cover all USPSTF- recognized CRC screening exams, for adults aged 50 to 75 years old, including screenings with CTC technology.iCAD highlighted its VeraLook computer-aided detection (CAD) software, which uses sophisticated image processing to identify colon polyps in CTC images. This can help to streamline the reading process and improve workflow for radiologists while supporting greater accuracy, consistency and productivity in colon cancer screenings. The technology, which is used in conjunction with advanced CTC software applications, is commercially available in leading healthcare facilities in the United States, Canada and Europe.The USPSTF CRC screening recommendations also highlighted clinical evidence indicating that screening can significantly reduce the risk of death from CRC among adults aged 50 to 75 years. The American Cancer Society estimates that 134,000 people will be diagnosed with CRC this year, and about 49,000 will die from it.“Although the increased availability of advanced screening methods has contributed to a substantial decline in CRC rates in recent years, it continues to be the second leading cause of cancer death among women and men,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD, adding, “These new USPSTF recommendations will hopefully encourage more patients to be screened and help clinicians identify early indicators of cancers.”For more information: www.icadmed.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling TEMPE, Ariz. — David Johnson has never heard of Doug Russell. He’s not alone, and that’s no surprise. It’s been 81 years since the Pennsylvania-raised, Kansas State-educated Russell led the Chicago Cardinals and the NFL in rushing yards in 1935 with 499 yards in 12 games.That is the second lowest rushing total ever to lead the NFL — including the strike-shortened 1982 season — and it is the last time a Cardinal led the league in rushing. Couple that with opponents’ defensive strategy that is consistently taking coach Bruce Arians’ deep ball away with more safety help over the top, and Johnson could see a steadier diet of carries that is more in line with Elliott’s weekly workload.“I honestly don’t know what the plan is,” Johnson said. “I just go out every day and make sure I’m doing what I can, as far as route-wise, playbook-wise, being up on treatment, making sure my body is ready so that If I do have that many carries I can handle that.”Arians clearly likes what he’s getting from Johnson in the run game, but he is quick to remind everyone that Johnson is just a second-year pro with multiple holes in his game.“Holding onto the ball is the biggest thing,” said Arians of Johnson, who has two fumbles; one lost this season. “And eliminating the one or two mental errors that are costing him from having great games.”Assuming he can stay healthy, Johnson will clearly eclipse Russell’s rushing total like hundreds of running backs have done since, but there is one Russell accomplishment Johnson may find hard to match. On Nov. 27, 1938 against the Cleveland Rams, Russell threw a 98-yard touchdown pass to Gaynell Tinsley. Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) runs as Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald (99) pursues during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Geez, that’s a long time,” Johnson said Saturday. “Hopefully, I can get that back for us.”A lot of players would be loath to touch the topic, but Johnson admits it would be a cool accomplishment.“Most definitely!” he said emphatically as the Cardinals prepared for a Monday Night game against the New York Jets’ second-ranked rushing defense (68.4 yards per game). “You dream of doing all that stuff — breaking records, making it to some Super Bowls, being a Hall of Famer. Ever since I was a little kid I’ve dreamed of that and I’ll bet everyone in the NFL thinks about that.”Given the defense Johnson faces this week, and the defenses he will see again in the NFC West against the Seattle Seahawks and the Los Angeles Rams, the path to a rushing title won’t be easy (it never is). Before Sunday’s games, Johnson was third in the NFL with 457 yards on 91 attempts for a 5-yard average. Dallas rookie Ezekiel Elliot was 89 yards ahead of him in first, at 546 yards on 109 attempts (also a 5-yard average), and Tennessee’s DeMarco Murray was second at 461 yards on 91 attempts.There are two factors that could work in Johnson’s favor. Backup Chris Johnson is on IR after suffering a groin injury against the Rams in Week 4. In the four games with Chris Johnson healthy, David Johnson averaged 16 carries a game. In the one game without Johnson (Week 5 in San Francisco), he carried 27 times. “I did it in college (a 36-yarder at Northern Iowa) and I had one last year that I wish I would have thrown,” Johnson said, laughing. “I’ve always said I have a pretty good arm, so we’ll see.”Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Where to go on holiday in October

first_imgCrete, Greece MauritiusAverage temperature: 27°C With family-friendly shallows and pristine white sands, Trou aux Biches is rightfully one of the most popular beaches on Mauritius.

Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean the holidays need to be. Check out the Skyscanner guide to the best cities, beaches, and events going on around the world this October for some serious travel inspo.

In October the temperature in Marseille is still warm enough to spend an evening on the terrace of a bar in the old port, watching the luxury yachts bob in the water as you sip pastis: the anise-flavoured local liqueur. One of the best sundowner spots is La Caravelle (34 Quai du Port), which has been a jazz bar since the 1930s. Its terrace is small, but has incredible views of the water. If you’re more into culture than quaffing visit the excellent Museum of the Civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean (open daily 11am–7pm, full price tickets cost €9.50), which hosts exhibitions on everything from the birth of agriculture to the recent uprising in Tunisia.

Expect lots of body paint, boozy cocktails, and dancing in the streets. With an average temperature of 22°C, you can expect plenty of sunbathing during an autumn trip to Crete. Balos Beach is a must-visit – as well as having soft golden sand to lounge on, it also has a captivating view of a sheer-walled island topped with a Venetian castle. Speaking of ancient buildings, Knossos on Crete is home to a huge Bronze Age site which could be Europe’s oldest city, dating back more than 4,000 years. According to Greek mythology, Knossos was home to the Labyrinth, a huge maze which was patrolled by the half-man, half-bull Minotaur. The Labyrinth might be pure myth, but the palace wasn’t: you can find its ruins around three miles south of Iraklio. Entry with a self-guided tour on your phone is around €15.

Fran Warren, has not been identified, you just play through Steam as usual. "Why isn’t she suspended?He brought officers of high integrity and commitment into the agency Soon the CBI acquired a high degree of reputation and won the public’s confidence due to its integrity and impartiality More than judicial enquiry demands for CBI investigation grew Sadly the image of the agency seems to be in tatters today Decidedly the CBI is facing its worst crisis Undoubtedly the decline has been gradual The first setback came in the Rajiv Gandhi era with the Single Directive in 1985-86 requiring the CBI to take prior permission of the ministry/department concerned before initiating an inquiry against ‘decision-making-level officers’ File photo of demonstrators protesting near the CBI building in Mumbai Reuters In the Vineet Narain case verdict on 18 December 1997 the Supreme Court apart from upholding the integrity of the CBI the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) and the Enforcement Directorate quashed the Single Directive as unconstitutional But the political class brought the directive back in the CVC Act of 2003 which was set aside again by the court But not to leave the matter at that the corruption law was amended in the last Monsoon Session of Parliament requiring the CBI to take prior approval for initiating investigation against all categories of government servants In legal terms this has been a deadly blow to the agency The earlier it is done away with the better would it be for the fight against corruption Politically the CBI faced challenges in the years preceding and during the Emergency when Sanjay Gandhi a law unto himself called the shots The organisation’s problems got compounded with some other agencies conducting searches and raids in its name The Rajiv-era started well with his ‘Mr Clean’ image but he soon got embroiled in the Bofors scam The agency breathed fresh air under the VP Singh government but his tenure did not last long The CBI faced to put it bluntly horrible times under the Chandrashekhar and the Narasimha Rao governments with the likes of Chandraswami calling the shots The writer during his second term in the CBI was thrown out of the agency unceremoniously for the second time for standing up to interference in investigative work This time even the Supreme Court failed to provide relief to him in his long legal battle to save his honour and the CBI’s integrity Shockingly what is happening now has never happened before Yes the CBI had faced ups and down earlier as well Not very long ago the Supreme Court justifiably or otherwise had called the CBI a “caged parrot” But never before had the rift between the director and the special director been in public eye like this before Never before had the agency registered a case of corruption against its own special director for alleged acceptance of bribe amounting to crores from someone under investigation with the officer dashing out a written complaint to the cabinet secretary and making allegations of corruption and conspiracy against the director The genesis of the present crisis can be traced back to little over two years when former director Anil Sinha from the Bihar cadre was set to retire A tried and tested officer special director RK Dutta who was on the verge of being promoted was shunted out as special secretaryin Ministry of Home Affairs in November 2016 Dutta’s Karnataka cadre came to his rescue by taking him back as DG state police In December 2016 the then-additional director Rakesh Asthana who had been working with Dutta for years was appointed interim director This set off quite an avoidable controversy in matters of further promotion as No 2 and No 1 in the organisation The result is for all of us to see today The situation would not have gone out of control had the government intervened at the time and taken the matter in its own hands But it is hamstrung by something of its own creation by way of the role and jurisdiction given to the CVC under some provisions of the CVC Act Undoubtedly the Act provided some valuable safeguards to the agency but it also created some impediments It vested in the CVC the ‘superintendence’ of the Delhi Police Establishment (and thus the CBI) in relation to investigation of cases under Prevention of Corruption Act For the remaining areas the Act left the ‘superintendence’ to the government So the ‘superintendence’ over the CBI is shared between the CVC and the government—an absurd proposition indeed The present crisis owes a lot to this diarchic arrangement in the CVC Act The current trouble within the CBI began soon after Alok Verma who had never been with the CBI was appointed director on 1 February 2017 instead of Dutta While the feud between Verma and Asthana was escalating quite rapidly in full public view neither the CVC nor the government acted in any worthwhile manner After the registration of a corruption case against the special director on 15 October when the government did intervene it did so in the clumsiest way In what looked like a midnight ‘coup’ in the intervening night of 23 and 24 October Verma and Asthana were ‘relieved’ of their duties the prestigious headquarters of the agency put under seige and joint director M Nageshwara Rao made interim director He landed at the CBI office at midnight to take charge and reshuffled several officers of the rank of joint director DIG SP and deputy SP Superintendents of police including the Investigating Officer looking into the case of corruption against the special director and the joint director supervising the case were shunted out Some of the orders were issued by the CVC which is beyond its jurisdiction Verma appealed to the Supreme Court against his relieving orders Asthana had already moved the Delhi High Court in the corruption case against him and others In an interim order on 26 October the Supreme Court asked the CVC to complete its probe against Verma within two weeks with former apex court judge Justice AK Patnaik to supervise the probe The Supreme Court also restrained Rao from taking any major policy decisions till hearing of the case on 12 November The Delhi High Court ordered status quo in the case against Asthana Restoring the CBI’s credibility requires some deeper thought The agency still functions under the DSPE Act The CVC Act was passed following the verdict in the Vineet Narain case In 2014 came the Lokpal Act Both these Acts partly deal with the powers and functions of the CBI which however does not have an act of its own till date The Estimates Committee of the Parliament (1991-92) under Jaswant Singh had recommended that the CBI be given statutory status and have legal powers to investigate cases with inter-state ramifications It had observed that unless this was done the effectiveness of the organisation would “decline substantially and rapidly”— the words are proving prophetic in the light of the current crisis Some solution lies in creation of a Lokpal But the political class across the table has little urgency Thanks to Anna Hazare’s movement the Lokpal Act is in place for more than five years now—but is not yet in position The writer is a former joint

Amma becoming the chief minister it was our dear brother Panneerselvam who has been loyal" With her elevation which comes over a month after she took charge as AIADMK general secretary on 31 December Sasikala carries on the legacy of Jayalalithaa who also held the two posts allowing her to wield complete control on the government and the party When Jayalalithaa was at the helm Sasikala was considered to yield a huge clout behind the scenes After taking charge of the party she had pledged to take forward the legacy of the former chief minister Ever since Jayalalithaa’s death there has been a clamour that Sasikala should follow the earlier practice of both the party general secretary and the chief minister’s post being vested with the same person Senior party leader and Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai is among those who have backed Sasikala for the Chief Minister’s post VK Sasikala on her first day as AIADMK general secretary Image courtesy: @AIADMKOfficial In December

Thiruthuraipoondi about 330 km from Chennai Sasikala was married to M Natarajan a Public elations Officer with the Tamil Nadu government In the 1980s Natarajan requested then South Arcot district Collector VS Chandralekha to introduce Sasikala to Jayalalithaa then the AIADMK Propaganda Secretary Natarajan argued that Sasikala would help video record Jayalalithaa’s functions With Jayalalithaa finding Sasikala’s work satisfactory they graduated to becoming friends After a while Sasikala moved into the Poes Garden residence of Jayalalithaa in the heart of Chennai Sasikala slowly established her hold at Poes Garden by bringing in people whom she trusted Sasikala accompanied Jayalalithaa wherever the latter went She would be invariably seated behind Jayalalithaa in the car Jayalalithaa publicly called Sasikala a sister not related by blood But their relationship turned sour in 2011 and Jayalalithaa threw out Sasikala and her family members from her residence But they later patched
