Wenger: Alexis ‘not more important than others’

Sánchez Arsenal v West Bromwich Albion Arsenal Arsène Wenger The Gunners boss has insisted that the Chilean’s lack of playing time has been down to fitness concerns, not payback for the summer Arsene Wenger has rubbished the suggestion he is punishing Alexis Sanchez for the Chilean’s desire to leave Arsenal by restricting his involvement in the Premier League.Sanchez’s sole start in the top flight this season came in the 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool in August, with Wenger having used him as a second-half substitute in the home win over Bournemouth and the 0-0 draw with Chelsea since.Arsenal 4/1 to be PL’s top London club Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing However, Sanchez started the 3-1 Europa League win over Cologne – in which he scored his first goal of the season – and the 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.It has been speculated that Wenger is reluctant to play Sanchez in the league due to concerns he is not fully committed to Arsenal’s cause, after he failed to secure a deadline-day transfer to Manchester City.But Wenger insists his involvement has only been restricted by the abdominal injury he picked up after returning from holiday following Chile’s Confederations Cup campaign.Asked if he is concerned about Sanchez’s focus, Wenger told a news conference on Thursday: “Not at all, that’s going to very quick conclusions.”He’s been out and injured and I thought he was a little bit short physically on Sunday [against Chelsea]. I played him last night to give him more competition.”There’s no disguised attitude on my side. I just try to get him back to full fitness. I just try to give him competition and get him back to his best. “He had a long holiday and came back not really fit and then he got injured. But last night, you could see he’s coming back sharp and I left him on for 90 minutes so he could have a real go.”All the players are important, he’s not more than any other. I used a team at Chelsea that could be strong on the counter-attack and fight hard.

He’d certainly want to. I don’t know, we haven’t spoken about that. We said at the start of the season we have to see what kind of influence he can have throughout the season.”Wenger added he is happy with club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette’s adaption to the team, despite him having scored only two goals this term.”He’s adapted to the team play, he connects well with the other players, he’s disciplined and works hard for the team,” he said. “I’m very pleased on a technical and tactical aspect.”He still needs to adapt to the physical aspect of the Premier League, which maybe takes a little time.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Nani: Man Utd need world-class players

first_imgManchester United need to sign more world-class players if they want to compete in the Premier League and Europe, according to Nani.United are facing a big off-season after failing to qualify for the Champions League, having finished sixth and 32 points adrift of winners Manchester City in 2018-19.Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia have already confirmed their Old Trafford departures, while the futures of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, David de Gea and Juan Mata are uncertain. 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? United have been linked with Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt, Benfica sensation Joao Felix, Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale and Paris Saint-Germain full-back Thomas Meunier as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tries to rebuild his squad.Nani was part of the last United team to win the Premier League in 2012-13 and the Portuguese star has been left saddened by the club’s struggles.Luis Nani Manchester United“United need more world-class players. Change something, attitude on the pitch,” Nani – who plays for Orlando City in MLS – told Omnisport.”I remember from my time with [former manager] Alex Ferguson, a lot of games we weren’t playing our best, we weren’t playing beautiful football but in 15 minutes we played with our hearts and to score goals.”We run, fight for each ball. That’s the way we get all the results. They must have more desire to win every battle on the pitch, every ball, every challenge because just like that they’re going to improve.”Nani, who won four Premier League titles and the Champions League among other trophies before leaving United permanently in 2015, added: “It’s hard to do well when the past is still there. All the big names and important people who made the club achieve so many trophies, they left.”Now, most of them are still around but not doing what they were doing in the past like coaching or playing. Now, they need to build a new strong team, a new strong mentality. This takes time. This has been the problem at Manchester United at the moment.”The 32-year-old continued: “I keep track. It makes me sad for the club, the players. It’s not the moment of United. Maybe for next season, they can do much better.”As a team, they are not a strong team. They must know that. Obviously, it’s still a young team too and maybe the club need to sign some top, experienced players to keep United among the best clubs in the world, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.”Because at the moment, we can’t compete with them because they are stronger. But in one season, everything can change.” Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December and the club favourite’s interim appointment sparked a rejuvenation as United stunned PSG to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.However, United only won two of their last 12 matches in all competitions – the Red Devils ending the Premier League without a victory in five games – as Solskjaer signed a permanent three-year deal.”He’s been there in the past,” Nani said when asked if Solskjaer can lead United back to glory. “Obviously he has a different role now but he knows the mentality and how the club achieved what they have.”But he has some good stuff to show the players, to change the mentality, to take them on the right way to fight for all the competitions. And try to be as quick as possible, the old United.”last_img read more

During the game on Saturday night, Franks spent time close to the fans on the sideline. His purpose? To garner crowd noise and trash-talk Miami fans.On another occasion Saturday night, the ESPN cameras pointed in his direction after a scoring drive.

But the chatter has yet to cease since the Gators’ victory on Saturday night.This time, Florida quarterback Felipe Franks took to Instagram to troll a popular ESPN commentator.During ESPN’s College GameDay, Desmond Howard picked Miami to upset Florida. Howard initially believed Florida wouldn’t take Miami seriously, and by doing so would lose the game.“I think that Florida is going to take the Canes a little lightly, first-year head coach, red-shirt freshman at the quarterback position,” Howard said, via 247Sports. “They’re feeling real good about themselves and the way they finished last season. I don’t think they’re going to take Miami seriously. I think that Jarren Williams and the Canes will pull out a victory tonight over the Gators.”It’s clear Howard’s remarks got back to Franks.

Solar Power for Irrigation at Monymusk Sugar Estate

first_imgStory Highlights Mr. Samuda informed that the sugar industry employs 50,000 workers and impacts approximately 200,000 persons both directly and indirectly. “It (the sugar industry) is resilient against weather, it is resilient against praedial larceny, and we have a level of expertise and familiarity with the industry where we don’t have to import experts,” he said. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed between the Sugar Company of Jamaica Holdings Limited and BMR Energy LLC for the development of a solar project that will provide power to the irrigation system at the Monymusk Sugar Estate in Clarendon. In his address, Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Karl Samuda, said implementation of the system will assist in providing a reliable flow of water to the crops as well as reduce the company’s energy cost. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed between the Sugar Company of Jamaica Holdings Limited and BMR Energy LLC for the development of a solar project that will provide power to the irrigation system at the Monymusk Sugar Estate in Clarendon.The signing took place at the offices of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries in New Kingston on November 7.The signatories were President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), BMR Energy LLC, Bruce Levy; and Chairman, Board of Directors, SCJ Holdings Limited, Wentworth Charles.In his address, Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Karl Samuda, said implementation of the system will assist in providing a reliable flow of water to the crops as well as reduce the company’s energy cost.“It is the first solar system that will facilitate irrigation in one of the areas where we have the most fertile soil but we lack consistency of water supply to ensure that the output is predictable,” he said.“I understand that this irrigation will provide 50 per cent of our requirement for irrigation. It is hoped that once this succeeds, then it will be extended so that we will have 100 per cent to underwrite the high cost of electricity to keep our irrigation system running,” he said.Mr. Holness pointed out that the aim is to increase the acreage under cultivation from approximately 3,000 hectares to about 7,500 hectares.Mr. Samuda informed that the sugar industry employs 50,000 workers and impacts approximately 200,000 persons both directly and indirectly. “It (the sugar industry) is resilient against weather, it is resilient against praedial larceny, and we have a level of expertise and familiarity with the industry where we don’t have to import experts,” he said.For his part, Mr. Levy said his company can offer SCJ several options to reduce their energy costs and improve the environment by the use of solar technology, and in some cases battery technology.He said benefits of renewable energy include lowering the country’s oil bill as well as reducing the impact on the environment from burning fuel.“We’re in Jamaica because it is a great place to do business. We have been very excited about the way Jamaica has embraced our proposals and our willingness to do business here. It’s filled with great natural resources, we’re using wind now in St. Elizabeth, but there is solar energy all over the island, and there is a great opportunity to make use of that,” he said.He informed that his company has started undertaking some of the analysis that is being contemplated by the MOU.BMR Energy, a Virgin Group investment, is a developer, owner and operator of clean energy projects in the Caribbean and Latin America.In July 2016, BMR’s 36-megawatt wind farm in Jamaica began operation as the country’s largest private-sector renewable-energy project. The wind farm is estimated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 66,000 tons each year and provide clean energy to 40,000 people in Jamaica.The SCJ Holding Limited operates specifically to support job creation, improve foreign trade and increase productivity. Its mandate includes divestment of government-owned sugar estates, leasing sugar lands to investors, managing all the sugar lands owned by the Government, determining the capabilities of government-owned lands, and promoting investment of government lands under its management.last_img read more

Yearlong UN campaign spotlights gender equality in the workplace

“Although progress is being made, gender equality is still lagging behind in the rapidly changing world of work,” said Juan Somavia, Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO). “By increasing overall awareness and understanding of gender equality issues, we can actively contribute to securing decent work for all women and men,” he added.For the past decade the agency has been working to redress gender-based inequalities in policies, programmes and projects, and to promote women’s empowerment, through its gender-mainstreaming strategy. The new campaign, built around 12 themes, will lead into a general discussion on gender equality at the heart of decent work at the International Labour Conference in June 2009. “During the next 12 months we will actively reach out to our constituents and other international partners, provide information on different themes and facilitate access to a body of material that the ILO has developed on gender equality around the world,” said Evy Messell, Director of the agency’s Bureau for Gender Equality. At the 2009 conference, delegates from governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations of ILO member States will be able to study the issues and draft a plan of action to promote gender equality for the next decade. 5 June 2008The United Nations labour agency is launching a year-long global campaign to highlight how various issues in the workplace affect men and women in different ways, in particular in accessing rights, employment and social protection. read more

Donor assistance to Africa on the increase but undercut by trade policies

“The aid developed countries give is often undercut by their trade policies – particularly by agricultural subsidies. These subsidies hinder Africa’s ability to export its way out of poverty and dependence, and they must be phased out,” Mr. Annan said in a message to the third Tokyo International Conference on International Development, which kicked-off today.Delivered by Mr. Annan’s Special Adviser on Africa, Under-Secretary-General Ibrahim Gambari, the message also stressed that if the challenges of Africa are to be met, developed countries also need to do a lot more – on aid, trade, and debt relief.”While there has been some progress in making official development assistance more effective, overall aid levels are still too low, and the principle of African ownership is still too often compromised by tied aid,” Mr. Annan stated. “A number of other African countries remain burdened by significant external debt.”Launched a decade ago, the Tokyo Conference provides a forum to deepening Asian-African cooperation and draws participants from both the public and private sectors in Africa and Asia, donor countries and international organizations. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) will be a central focus of the discussions.Mr. Annan also urged African countries to “make bold reforms” and find ways to allocate additional core funding to the Partnership’s priorities. “NEPAD must be popularized at the national level, so as to ensure greater ownership by all stakeholders in civil society and the private sector,” he said.The Secretary-General also noted that HIV/AIDS and armed conflict were major obstacles to development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and leadership was needed to deal with both issues. read more

Opinion Ohio State mens basketball team has pieces to replace 4 transfers

OSU sophomore forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) looks to make a pass during a game against Northern Illinois on Dec. 16 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 64-57.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorWithout a single graduating senior, the Ohio State men’s basketball program has still managed to undergo its fair share of roster turnover since the season ended.Shortly after losing to Florida in the second round of the NIT, a trio of freshmen Buckeyes announced their intentions to transfer: forward Mickey Mitchell, guard A.J. Harris and center Daniel Giddens. Another freshman, guard Austin Grandstaff, transferred to Oklahoma in December, leaving OSU with one remaining player from its 2015 class in guard JaQuan Lyle.Despite the departures, coach Thad Matta welcomes back the main core of last season’s team with forwards Marc Loving, Jae’Sean Tate and Keita Bates-Diop joined by Lyle and guard Kam Williams. Center Trevor Thompson entered his name into the NBA draft, but given that he did not hire an agent and is not expected to be selected, he’ll likely return to school.Even though OSU should return its top six scorers, much of the depth it had last season is gone. Combined, the three most recent transfers only averaged 8.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game, but each logged valuable minutes off the bench as role players.On a squad that didn’t have much of a presence in the post, Giddens was the team’s leading shot blocker (1.5 per game) and was widely praised for the energy he brought to the floor.Harris was one of only five OSU players to play in all 35 games and served as the backup point guard to Lyle, even cracking the starting lineup in four games in the middle of the season. Without him, there are some serious questions of depth at guard.Finally, Mitchell started the last seven games of the season after Tate was lost due to a left shoulder injury. He struggled to put the ball in the basket, but the former four-star recruit provided versatility with his passing and rebounding.How will Matta and the Buckeyes go about replacing what was lost?To help in the frontcourt, the program has a duo of incoming freshmen from Ohio.Derek Funderburk, originally from Lakewood, Ohio, is the highest-rated recruit in OSU’s 2016 class. At 6-foot-9, the center is ranked as the 10th-best player at his position and No. 69 overall in the 2016 class, according to 247Sports. He spent his senior season with Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia.Micah Potter, a native of Mentor, Ohio, should also log valuable minutes. Standing at 6-foot-10, he’s ranked as the No. 30 center in the country. He played his final high school season at Montverde Academy in Florida.Both big men are noted for being able to stretch the floor, to score from down low and 3-point range, which should provide more viable offensive threats to come off the Scarlet and Gray bench along with Williams. For a team that struggled to get consistent scoring from any post player other than Tate last season, they will be welcomed additions to the OSU squad.Some potential help on the perimeter is also on the way for Matta and company.Small forward Andre Wesson committed to OSU in mid-April after helping lead Westerville South High School to the Ohio Division I state championship in his senior season. Wesson’s dad, Keith, played for OSU from 1983 to 1987, and his brother, Kaleb, is a 2017 commit for OSU. With solid outside-shooting ability, he should provide a backup to Loving and Bates-Diop.In another recent addition, the Buckeyes got a commitment from junior-college transfer C.J. Jackson. In his freshman season at Eastern Florida State College, the guard averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game, while shooting 45 percent from three. Touted as a combo guard, Jackson can handle the ball as well as shoot it and will give OSU some much-needed depth in the backcourt behind Lyle and Williams.OSU will have a solid foundation of experienced players heading into next season. The only issue will be what the program gets from its bench, which was a problem area in the 2015-16 campaign. Teams are able to succeed with six-man rotations, but the margin of error is slim. Having depth is crucial if injuries strike or a key player gets into foul trouble.With the four newcomers, Matta seems to have found that depth, in spite of what was unexpectedly lost after the season. read more

The Chargers Are Unprecedented LateGame Failures

61985-86Buffalo16-2.516-2.9-5.4 “[I’m] furious,” the San Diego Chargers coach told reporters. “It’s a major disappointment. You get the lead we had, and to fall apart — [it’s] a major disappointment. Frustration is an understatement. I can’t say right now in this microphone how I really, truly feel.”McCoy’s reaction was understandable, because his Chargers are currently in a historic stretch of late-game failure. Last season — McCoy’s third in San Diego as head coach — the Chargers lost 2.6 games’ worth of win probability added (WPA) in the fourth quarter or overtime, trailing only the New York Giants (-2.8) and tied with the Dallas Cowboys. (WPA measures the swing in each team’s chances of winning a game with each play, and it can be added up to isolate how — and when — a team helped or hurt its chances of winning.)This goes beyond simple “if the game ended after three quarters”-type stuff to encompass many types of bungling that can make a game closer than it had previously been. If a team has a 75 percent chance of winning with six minutes left but then throws a pick-six to put its odds at 20 percent, that’s 0.55 games’ worth of lost win probability. So 2.6 games is a lot. And the team has nearly matched that total already this year, losing 2.1 games of WPA in the first four games of the season. Added together, that two-year total of -4.7 WPA in the fourth quarter or overtime ranks 19th-worst by any team in a two-season span since the Super Bowl era began in 1966. 31999-00Dallas17-3.616-2.1-5.7 52011-12Philadelphia16-3.716-1.7-5.4 Mike McCoy was in a mood when he stepped to the podium and addressed the media after his team blew a 13-point fourth-quarter lead against the New Orleans Saints Sunday. 192015-16San Diego16-2.64-2.1-4.7 YEAR 1YEAR 2TOTAL 71979-80St. Louis16-2.016-3.2-5.2 122007-08St. Louis16-2.416-2.6-5.0 41993-94Washington16-1.816-3.9-5.6 141995-96Baltimore16-2.416-2.4-4.8 171994-95Washington16-3.916-0.9-4.7 151970-71Cincinnati16-1.014-3.8-4.8 YEARTEAMGAMES4Q/OT WPAGAMES4Q/OT WPA4Q/OT WPA And again, that’s comparing this season’s Chargers, four games into their schedule, with teams that had many more opportunities to blow games. On a per-game basis, the 2015-16 Chargers have lost more WPA in the fourth quarter or OT than any other team of the Super Bowl era did over a two-year stretch: 181989-90Minnesota17-2.116-2.6-4.7 81985-86Buffalo-16.7 Of course, McCoy and the Chargers also have more opportunities to reverse this trend. Since 1978 (the advent of the NFL’s 16-game schedule),1And excluding the strike-shortened 1982 and 1987 seasons. fourth-quarter and OT performance by WPA over a team’s first four games hasn’t really been indicative of how the team would perform for the rest of the season.2The correlation between a team’s per-game WPA in the fourth quarter or OT through the season’s first four games and the same figure over the rest of the season was effectively zero. This suggests that teams who begin the year by bleeding points and WPA late in games aren’t inherently doomed to choke forever (though the Chargers’ two-year trend might be more damning than usual).But the damage of these first four weeks has already been done. Now the only question for the embattled McCoy is whether he can keep his job long enough to be at the helm when San Diego’s WPA problems eventually work themselves out. 92011-12San Diego16-1.516-3.6-5.1 201994-95Houston16-3.016-1.6-4.6 22000-01San Diego16-3.816-2.5-6.3 82014-15Tennessee16-3.216-1.9-5.1 101970-71Cincinnati-16.0 YEARSTEAMCHANGE IN WIN PROB.

Netgear WiFi Booster extends your home network with one plug no wires

first_imgDepending on the size and layout of your home, relying solely on the wireless signal your router provides may not be good enough. There’s bound to be one or more dead zones, some of which fall right where you want to sit and surf with your tablet or smartphone.The typical solution to this problem is to extend your WiFi network with an access point or powerline adapters. The first requires running new cabling, which may not be possible. The second requires two power sockets be used for it to work. However, Netgear has come up with an even simpler solution that only requires a single socket and no wires.The WN1000RP WiFi Booster for Mobile is a device that plugs directly into a power socket and extends your existing WiFi coverage. There’s no wires involved, you just locate it within range of your router’s wireless signal and it will extend it further.As it’s just a wireless link up it should work with any router, but if you use a Netgear router then the Push ‘N’ Connect button makes setup incredibly simple–you just push two buttons and a secure link is made.Netgear is marketing the WN1000RP as a great way of reducing your mobile data charges by using WiFi instead of 3G in the home, but this is going to work for any network-connected device. There’s also a handy “real-time LED” on the device to help you locate the best place for it within your existing router coverage.It’s not mentioned by Netgear, but I see no reason why you can’t daisy-chain these boosters together. If you’ve got a particularly difficult are to provide wireless coverage to, or want to extend it into your garden, a couple of these may do the trick.The WiFi Booster for Mobile is expected to become available in mid-August for $39.99. That’s about $20 less than a basic powerline adapter set costs last time I looked.Read more at Netgearlast_img read more

Émétophobie symptômes causes traitement comment soigner

first_imgÉmétophobie : symptômes, causes, traitement, comment soigner ?L’émétophobie désigne la peur panique de vomir ou des nausées, qu’il s’agisse d’une crainte réellement fondée ou irrationnelle. Qu’est-ce que l’émétophobie ?L’émétophobie entre dans la catégorie des phobies spécifiques, c’est-à-dire des phobies dont l’objet ou la situation phobogène sont clairement identifiés. Dans le cadre de cette phobie, l’angoisse est générée par la peur de vomir, de voir quelqu’un vomir, ou encore d’être dans un état nauséeux.Dans les cas les plus extrêmes, même les maux de ventre deviennent anxiogènes. À l’image de toutes les personnes phobiques, l’émétophobe développera des comportements contraphobiques afin de ne pas être confronté à sa peur. À terme, sa vie quotidienne, ses relations sociales et sa carrière professionnelle peuvent s’en trouver considérablement altérées.Quels sont les symptômes de l’émétophobie ?Dans sa vie de tous les jours, la personne émétophobe sera sujette à des crises d’angoisse, voire à des attaques de panique, à l’idée de se trouver dans une situation susceptible de provoquer des nausées ou des vomissements. Selon les individus, cela pourra aller de la peur de prendre les transports en commun à celle de voir quelqu’un vomir dans un film en passant par le refus de tomber enceinte pour une femme.Généralement, les émétophobes prêtent une attention toute particulière à la préparation des repas, au lavage des légumes ainsi qu’aux dates limites de consommation des aliments, car l’émétophobie est souvent associée à une peur excessive de la contamination bactérienne. Certaines personnes refusent même de manger en dehors de chez elles.Quelles sont les causes de l’émétophobie ?Il n’est pas toujours évident pour un individu phobique de déterminer l’origine de sa peur de vomir. Généralement, elle naît à l’occasion d’un événement vécu comme un traumatisme. Il pourra s’agir, par exemple, d’une gastro-entérite qui aura laissé un très mauvais souvenir, ou de la vue d’une mère qui aura souffert de nausées importantes pendant l’une de ses grossesses. Certaines causes plus graves comme un abus sexuel ou un viol peuvent également déclencher ce type de dégoût.Quels sont les traitements de l’émétophobie ?À lire aussiTrypophobie, l’étrange peur des petits trousCette phobie spécifique doit faire l’objet d’une prise en charge psychothérapeutique à partir du moment où elle impacte la vie sociale et professionnelle. En matière de phobie, la thérapie cognitivo-comportementale offre de bons résultats puisqu’elle permet à la personne phobique de se confronter progressivement à sa peur de vomir en développant des outils pour la maîtriser.La psychanalyse représente également une alternative envisageable en cas d’émétophobie. Cette approche, certes moins dynamique, permet au patient de travailler sur les causes réelles de son trouble en recherchant des éléments de compréhension dans son passé.Le 7 août 2017 à 17:56 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
