first_imgManchester United 2 Liverpool 1: Rashford double secures huge victory Tom Webber Last updated 1 year ago 22:24 10/3/2018 MarcusRashford - cropped Getty Images Manchester United increased their grip on second position in the Premier League by beating Liverpool courtesy of Marcus Rashford’s double. Marcus Rashford emphatically marked his return to Manchester United’s starting XI with a double in a huge 2-1 Premier League victory over rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.In the line-up for the first time since Boxing Day as Jose Mourinho made three changes with Paul Pogba ruled out through injury, Rashford scored a first-half brace to boost United’s hopes of finishing second to runaway leaders Manchester City.The England international ended a run of 10 Premier League matches without a goal to send United five points clear of third-placed Liverpool in the 200th competitive meeting between the sides, though Tottenham could close to within four by beating Bournemouth on Sunday.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Jurgen Klopp made five alterations to the side that secured progression to the Champions League quarter-finals against Porto on Tuesday, with Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold reinforcing the defence, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah returned further up the pitch.But that backline was bullied by Romelu Lukaku, who proved a magnet for the long balls from which he helped create Rashford’s goals – the first of which came after a delightful change of direction in the 14th minute.An own goal from Eric Bailly on his first start since November having been sidelined with a knee injury gave Liverpool hope during an improved second-half display, but the Red Devils held on for a potentially crucial victory.FULL-TIME Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool@MarcusRashford inspires the Red Devils to an excellent victory at Old Trafford #MUNLIV pic.twitter.com/I4wrNBlL7i— Premier League (@premierleague) March 10, 2018Klopp on Friday said the clash was not “an attacking team against a defending team” but that was exactly how the opening stages played out, with United sitting back and Liverpool controlling possession.It was the hosts who took the lead, though. David de Gea’s goal-kick was flicked on to Rashford by Lukaku, and he brilliantly chopped inside of Alexander-Arnold and fired inside the far post.Gooallll @ManUtd— Usain St. Leo Bolt (@usainbolt) March 10, 2018Van Dijk wasted a glorious chance to equalise in the 23rd minute, his shoulder rather than head connecting with a corner from James Milner – wearing the captain’s armband as Jordan Henderson sat out with a dead leg – as he missed the target from inside the six-yard box.United made the most of that reprieve by doubling their advantage just 62 seconds later, again from a long pass from deep.Van Dijk’s challenge on Juan Mata after brilliant work from Lukaku inadvertently sent the ball to Rashford, who guided it beyond an out-of-position Loris Karius with the help of a nick off Alexander-Arnold.It should have been three when Alexis Sanchez picked out the unmarked Mata in the middle of the area before half-time, but the Spain international sent his overhead kick wide.1984 – Manchester United have not lost a league game at Old Trafford that they have been leading at half-time since May 7th 1984 (1-2 vs Ipswich Town). Dominant. #MUNLIV pic.twitter.com/6aniDqx1ne— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 10, 2018Liverpool stepped up a gear after the restart and saw penalty claims for Ashley Young’s foul on Salah and a handball by Antonio Valencia turned down by referee Craig Pawson.They were rewarded in the 66th minute when Sadio Mane beat Scott McTominay for pace down the left and sent in a cross that Bailly approached with the wrong foot and sent into the back of his own net.There were boos when Mourinho replaced Rashford with Marouane Fellaini to add an extra body in midfield with 20 minutes remaining, and the Belgium international was fortunate not to concede a penalty when he sent Mane to ground.Klopp sent on Georginio Wijnaldum and Dominic Solanke as Liverpool fought to restore parity, but Salah sliced a wild volley over in the sixth minute of stoppage time as United held on for a third successive league win.Key Opta Stats:- Manchester United defeated Liverpool for the 68th time in league competition; this is the most defeats that Liverpool have suffered against a single side.- United have won four of their eight games against fellow ‘big six’ sides in the Premier League this season (W4 D1 L3), twice as many as they managed in the whole of last season (W2 D4 L4).- Liverpool have won only one of their seven Premier League games on the weekends immediately following playing a Champions League game this season (W1 D4 L2).- United have won 20 of their 30 Premier League games this season, already surpassing their totals in both 2016-17 (18) and 2015-16 (19) and equalling their number of league wins in 2014-15 (20).- Only United (67) have profited from more own goals in the Premier League than Liverpool (58).- Manchester United had just two shots on target in this match – both of which were scored by Marcus Rashford.- He has scored seven of his 16 Premier League goals against teams in the ‘big six’ (44%).- Romelu Lukaku now has seven Premier League assists this season; more than he has in any previous campaign. read morelast_img read more

10 Great Quotes from T. Boone Pickens

first_imgOil baron T. Boone Pickens, a 1951 Oklahoma A&M graduate who later became Oklahoma State football’s biggest donor, passed away Wednesday in Dallas, Texas. His legacy and impact on the football program and the university will forever be remembered, as will his kind spirit and one-of-a-kind personality.Over the years, Pickens displayed that magnetic charisma at media outings, public speaking appearances, and even on social media, where his sense of humor flourished, opening a window to his soul. You could write a book on some of his Instagram posts, which range from videos of him running up hills to memes of him working out to him doing pushups while army men held him upright. Come to think of it, he was a bit of a fitness junkie!He had his serious moments, too, where he revealed his brilliance to the public. We’ve compiled some of the best quotes from a little of both sides of him over the years.1. Boone’s challenge to Barack ObamaNo. 1 on the list, No. 1 in my heart, this video perhaps best represents Boone better than any other quote on this list. In 2014, he challenged sitting president Barack Obama to a fitness competition, a video that included him running hills and issuing this statement:“I challenge President Barack Obama to a 1 hour workout. My cardio is better. Will work out energy plan for America. #nosweat“ On fitness, Pickens once said, “When you are young, fitness is a sport. As you grow older, it’s a necessity.”2. On beating OUNo one wanted Oklahoma State football to flourish more than Boone Pickens. And no one wanted that flourishing to include beating OU more than Boone Pickens. He said this on the topic in 2016 (via the Tulsa World):“I would like to beat OU. Mike has struggled with that game. I think he’s 2-9, so we’re not competitive with OU. By golly, we beat Texas. We’re the only team that has beaten Texas four in a row in Austin. If we can beat Texas, we sure ought to beat OU.”3. On the First BillionThe Drake-Boone exchange on Twitter came in the earlier years of social when stuff like this was still shocking and amazing. It stands the (short) test of time.Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 2.51.19 PM.png4. On planning“A plan without action is not a plan. It’s a speech.”“A fool with a plan can outsmart a genius with no plan.”“Be willing to make decisions. That’s the most important quality in a good leader. Don’t fall victim to what I call the “ready-aim-aim-aim-aim” syndrome. You must be willing to fire.”5. On Focus“The older I get, the more I see a straight path where I want to go. If you’re going to hunt elephants, don’t get off the trail for a rabbit.”6. On doing things right‘I’ve given the school a lot of money,” he said in 2013. “But if there is any cheating, I’m through.” 7. The eight-hour rule“Work eight hours and sleep eight hours, and make sure that they are not the same eight hours.”8. Not buying green bananasLast year before the start of the football season, Boone, true to form, issued what his people call a “Boone-ism.” In a semi-serious quote about confidence in Gundy and the OSU football program, he ended it with, well ….“I’m in this to win a national championship,” he said. “Turning 90 as I did last May only fuels that fire. Time for me is winding down, but I remain an optimist that Mike Gundy can and will deliver on a national championship. The sooner the better. At 90, I don’t buy green bananas.”9. On Sports IllustratedRemember when Boone tried to end an entire publication with a single tweet? .@SInow The higher the monkey climbs the tree the more people can see its ass. You climbed far up the tree on #okstate.— T. Boone Pickens (@boonepickens) September 18, 201310. Old school communication“Keep things informal. Talking is the natural way to do business. Writing is great for keeping records and putting down details, but talk generates ideas. Great things come from our luncheon meetings, which consist of a sandwich, a cup of soup, and a good idea or two. No martinis.”11. (Bonus) On the FutureHere’s what Pickens said after that remarkable Baker-Justice 2017 Bedlam game in Stillwater. We thought it was a good one for today.

Jose Pekerman has warned Colombia they will face an “in harmony” England side in the World Cup second round.Colombia defeated Senegal 1-0 in Samara on Thursday to secure their qualification as winners of Group H, before a much-changed England, already through, finished second in Group G following their 1-0 loss to Belgium.Those results set up a last-16 meeting in Moscow on Tuesday, from which the victors will advance to a quarter-final with Sweden or Switzerland, in what is perceived to be the easier half of the draw.

We know any team that reaches the last 16 is good, the 16 best teams in the world,” he said.”Obviously they can have a good day or an even better day but the whole squad operates at a certain level.”England are a young team that is in harmony, very confident, they have excellent individual players and they’ve managed to pass the group stage quite comfortably.”I’m sure now a different type of match is heading our way. These will be to-the-death matches, so these are extreme situations, [you have] to play a great game from the beginning.”England has what it takes and it’s going to be a match in which Colombia will also be confident to get a good result.”Lots of changes.

Wherever he has played, he has made his teams better, scoring well over 100 professional goals in the process.”To make room for Ruidiaz on its roster, Seattle used targeted allocation money to lower the salary budget charge of midfielder Osvaldo Alonso, who will no longer occupy a designated player spot. Ruidiaz, Nicolas Lodeiro and Clint Dempsey are now the Sounders’ three designated players. Ruidiaz has been one of the top scorers in Mexico since joining Morelia in 2016. He was top scorer in both the 2016 Apertura and 2017 Clausura, and his 40 goals in the past two years trail only Tigres striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, who has netted 41. The Peru international will be a welcome addition for a Seattle side that is dead-last in goals scored in MLS with just 11 in 14 matches. Ruidiaz has been capped 31 times by Peru, scoring four goals. At club level, he has also represented Universitario in Peru, Brazilian club Coritiba and Chilean side Universidad de Chile.last_img read more

He was shackled, however, and failed to score as Uruguay won 2-1.Matuidi, of course, is still competing in the tournament, and will take on Ronaldo’s conquerors after Les Bleus beat Argentina in the last 16.A win over Uruguay would book France a semi-final clash with either Brazil or Belgium, and were they to be successful, they would face one of England, Sweden, Croatia or Russia in the final.last_img read more

1st Australian Commercial LNG Bunkering Completed

first_imgzoom Wesfarmers’ EVOL LNG has carried out the first Australian commercial LNG bunkering operation, the company said.Under an agreement with Woodside, EVOL LNG refuelled the platform supply vessel, Siem Thiima, on 23 January at King Bay Supply Base near Dampier.Siem Thiima is owned by Norwegian company Siem Offshore Australia Pty Ltd and is the first LNG‐fuelled platform supply vessel in Australia.Another milestone was achieved on 19 February 2017,  when the first LNG bunkering was carried out at Fremantle Port. With this move Freemantle and Dampier join the growing global LNG bunkering network which includes major ports in Europe, North America, Qatar, Singapore, Japan and Korea as well as more than 40 other ports around the world which currently, or plan to, bunker LNG.EVOL LNG’s Business Manager, Nick Rea sees it as just the beginning.“Our decision to enter the LNG bunkering market is part of a long‐term strategy that recognises environmental and economic sustainability of LNG as a transport fuel,” said Rea. “With growing demand for lower emission fuels over the past decade, we’ve seen the number of LNG‐ fuelled ships in operation worldwide increase steadily from a handful to more than 75, with an additional 80 expected to be built in the next three years.” Rea further added that growth had largely been driven by International Maritime Organisation (IMO) regulations and the introduction of emission control areas in Europe and North America.  In addition, China has introduced emission control areas around its three major ports.“LNG is a cleaner fuel than marine diesel, emitting 25 per cent less carbon dioxide, less nitrogen oxides and almost zero sulphur oxides and particulates, which largely addresses emission concerns for the shipping industry and avoids expensive and complicated scrubbing systems .”As explained, the company would like to expand its offering, “particularly as truck‐to‐ship LNG bunkering can be achieved relatively inexpensively with existing logistics assets.”Furthermore, Rae pointed out that if other ports express interest, EVOL LNG would obtain licences from other major Australian and regional WA ports to conduct LNG bunkering operations, and look at investing in infrastructure to meet the market’s needs.EVOL LNG secured its second major Australian port bunkering licence from Pilbara Ports Authority, permitting LNG bunkering at King Bay Supply Base and transport through the Port of Dampier. This followed its first licence from Fremantle Ports in July last year.Initially LNG will be delivered from EVOL LNG’s Kwinana plant.last_img read more

New Zealand thrash Sri Lanka to level series 11

Bhuvneshwar will rise to challenge in World Cup says Madan Lal

first_imgNew Delhi: Bhuvneshwar Kumar is expected to be an integral part of the Indian attack when Virat Kohli and his boys land in England for the 2019 World Cup. But the 29-year-old has not been able to deliver as consistently as he would have liked for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in this edition of the Indian Premier League. The premier SRH bowler has just taken nine wickets in the 13 matches he has played so far. He has also been taken for plenty in many of the matches with his economy rate hovering around 8 in this season. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuHowever, former India fast bowler Madan Lal believes the pacer is performing reasonably well and exuded confidence that Bhuvneshwar will deliver for India at the showpiece event. “He is performing okay in the ongoing IPL. He is one of our premier fast bowlers. He has a lot of experience and has performed in the past as well for the team. World Cup is a different game all together and I am pretty sure he will perform for the team in England,” Lal said. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersBhuvneshwar had announced himself at the world stage in 2012 with a fantastic debut against Pakistan in a T20I where he returned with figures of 3/9. The highlight of his performance on that day was a terrific inswinger he had bowled to Nasir Jamshed which saw the stumps flying. The right-arm medium pacer since then had been an integral part of the Indian set-up. Despite not having express pace, Bhuvi kept on taking wickets with his lethal inswinging deliveries, which all batsmen, especially right-handers, found difficult to deal with. Bhuvneshwar was expected to start in all matches for the 2015 World Cup but could not due to poor fitness. He played in only one match against UAE. And 12 months ago, it was all but certain that he would be leading the Indian bowling attack at the World Cup in England. However, at present it doesn’t seem to be going that way.last_img read more

Our children cannot vote. We want to demonstrate our goodwill to our young people and provide them access to and experience of the political process from an early age.”The attorney at law expressed some other, more striking thoughts on this rule in the ordinance.Fulford says Sharlene Robinson, leader of the People’s Democratic Movement should be blamed for the mess his cancellation has created.“The truth is that this law was pushed not only by the British. We must lay the blame of this law at the feet where it belongs: The Hon. Sharlene Cartwright – and the British – during her term in the Interim administration, they together pushed for these laws.”Mark Fulford also calls the standard established firmly in 2012, more repression by the British.Nonetheless, the Elections Supervisor says it is not new, but that ‘treating’ has been illegal for many years, although in past campaigning leading up to general elections some people have chosen to ignore it, and such behavior he said is no longer being ignored.It was clearly explained in a media release that anyone found ‘treating’ and is the candidate or associated with a candidate will face a criminal investigation as it will be reported to Police. Lewis said the rule keeps the playing field leveled between those offering to serve in one of 15 seats in Parliament.Fulford, who in August hosted a workshop for North and Middle Caicos business owners featuring Premier, Finance Minister, Border Control Minister and other government leaders on a panel, believes the rule is archaic.

Eric Dier 2018 has been a very special year for England

first_imgEngland’s exploits in 2018 should go down as one of the nation’s greatest years in history, says Eric DierThe Three Lions reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia for the first time since 1990 and only narrowly lost out to Croatia for a spot in final.However, on Sunday, England got their revenge by coming back from a goal down to beat Croatia 2-1 at Wembley and book a place for June’s UEFA Nations League’s semi-finals.Aside from that, England also enjoyed memorable victories over Spain and Sweden this year.“2018 has been the best year I’ve experienced as an England player,” Dier told Standard Sport.“It has been very special with what happened at the World Cup and now beating Spain and Croatia. There hasn’t been a year like this for England in a long, long time.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We are now going to play a second semi-final in the space of 12 months and it’s fantastic for us. The most important thing is we use that knowledge in the best possible way.”Gareth Southgate’s side head into the Nations League finals in Portugal this summer in search of the nation’s first major silverware since 1966.“Our aim has always been just to win this competition. We are really excited now,” added Dier.“We wanted to get through the group and it was an extremely difficult one against two top teams. now we want to win everything we are involved in.“Beating Croatia shows the progress we have made since July. We are constantly trying to improve, this is just another step along the way. But we know we can get even better.“We could have gone in two directions after the World Cup — we wanted to develop and build on it and I feel we have done that. At the same time, we have to continue to do this. Our potential is huge and it is up to us to fulfil it.”last_img read more

Deaths from fentanyl overdoses spike in San Diego County

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office reported that deaths from the opioid have more than doubled in the last two years.From figures released by the Medical Examiner’s office, the county recorded 33 deaths in 2015.The number of deaths soared in successive years by more than 150%, to 84 deaths in 2017 and 85 in 2018.With a potency that is 50-100 times greater than morphine, a small amount of fentanyl equal to no more than a few grains of salt can be fatal.According to Dr. Steven Campman, the chief deputy Medical Examiner, most of the people who are dying are younger men.“It’s five to one, men to women. The average age is 36 with a fair number of mid-20’s and mid-30’s and fewer older people,” Campman said.Fentanyl in a dermal patch can be prescribed for therapeutic purposes, however, Campman said he believed the fentanyl associated with most of the fatal overdoses is obtained illegally from dealers on the street.Users may think they are buying Xanax or the popular painkiller, Oxycontin, but the pill is counterfeit and actually contains fentanyl.“Maybe they meant to buy cocaine, oxycodone or alprazolam and took what they thought was something else, and it was too much and they died,” Campman said.Also common are drugs laced with fentanyl. The deputy medical examiner said he has seen an increasing number of cases in which people are dying in clusters.Last fall, several people died in the Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach areas from cocaine that was mixed with fentanyl.Citing that incident as an example, Campman said, “Three people dead in one house, all right next to each other, all right next to the drug – and that’s kind of new for us to see with fentanyl.” Sasha Foo Categories: Health, Local San Diego News Posted: February 6, 2019 Deaths from fentanyl overdoses spike in San Diego County FacebookTwitter Sasha Foo, February 6, 2019 Updated: 7:12 PMlast_img read more
