BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE REVIEWS

first_imgSATURDAY, DECEMBER 5ARSENAL 3 SUNDERLAND 1Arsenal ended a run of three games in the Barclays Premier League without a win to move into second place. Draws against Tottenham and Norwich and defeat at West Brom had threatened to derail the Gunners’ title bid, but they responded when Joel Campbell finished Mezut Ozil’s through ball. Olivier Giroud put the ball into his own net to bring Sunderland level, but the Frenchman responded with a goal at the other end before Aaron Ramsey’s late third.GOALS:-ARSENAL: CAMPBELL 33; GIROUD 63; RAMSEY 90. SUNDERLAND: GIROUD OG 45.CHELSEA 0 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1Glenn Murray’s late header gave Bournemouth a famous win at Stamford Bridge and put more pressure on Chelsea manager JosÈ Mourinho. Murray’s 82nd-minute winner moved Eddie Howe’s side out of the relegation zone. They also became the first promoted side to beat Chelsea at home since Charlton in April 2001.GOAL:-BOURNEMOUTH: MURRAY 82.MANCHESTER UNITED 0 WEST HAM UNITED 0Having lost on their previous seven Barclays Premier League visits to Old Trafford, West Ham held Manchester United to a goalless draw – the first time these teams have drawn in Manchester since 1984. The visitors had the better chances in the contest, hitting the post twice in quick succession through Mauro Zarate, followed by Winston Reid’s header.GOALS:-NONE.SOUTHAMPTON 1ASTON VILLA 1Aston Villa were denied a first win in the Barclays Premier League since the opening day of the season. Oriol Romeu’s equaliser earned Southampton a draw after Southampton were punished when defender Joleon Lescott turned in a corner. But the top-flight’s bottom club, Villa, could not hold on as Romeu stabbed in a shot from a corner for the leveller.GOALS:-SOUTHAMPTON: ROMEU 73. VILLA: LESCOTT 44.STOKE CITY 2MANCHESTER CITY 0Manchester City were knocked off the top of the Barclays Premier League by a vibrant Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium. Marko Arnautovic scored twice early on, with Xherdan Shaqiri creating both. Arnautovic nudged home Shaqiri’s cross for the opener and then finished off a perfectly weighted through ball from his teammate to send City into third place for the first time this season.GOALS:-STOKE:ARNAUTOVIC 7, 15.SWANSEA CITY 0LEICESTER CITY 3Jamie Vardy failed to score for the first time in 12 Barclays Premier League matches, but a hat-trick by teammate Riyad Mahrez saw Leicester City back on top of the division. Mahrez headed the Foxes in front after five minutes and fired in calmly for his second, although he seemed offside. Swansea’s Ki Sung-yueng headed against the bar after the break, but Mahrez finished an incisive counter-attack to seal his first-ever hat-trick.GOALS:-MAHREZ 5, 22, 67.WATFORD 2NORWICH CITY 0Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo both scored as Watford earned a deserved win over struggling Norwich. Captain Deeney converted a spot kick, his fourth goal in six games, after strike-partner Ighalo had been fouled by Alex Tettey. Nigeria’s Ighalo, who gave Norwich’s defence huge problems, added a second in added time when he slotted in his ninth goal of the season.GOALS:-WATFORD: DEENEY PEN 30; IGHALO 90.WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1Tottenham wasted a chance to keep pressure on the Barclays Premier League’s top four after letting a lead slip at West Brom. Mauricio Pochettino’s side were ahead after 15 minutes when a Toby Alderweireld pass was converted by Dele Alli. But West Bromwich Albion levelled before the break when James McClean’s header finished off a neat move.GOALS:-WBA: McCLEAN 32. TOTTENHAM: ALLI 15.SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7NEWCASTLE UNITED 2 LIVERPOOL 0Gorgi Wijnaldum earned Newcastle United an invaluable three points against Liverpool, with one shot deflected into the visitors’ net for the first and a neat finish confirming the victory, only the Magpies’ third of the season. Liverpool, who had won seven of their last eight games, were poor. Alberto Moreno was wrongly denied by an offside flag as Jurgen Klopp suffered a second defeat in 12 games.GOALS:-SKRTEL 0G 67; WIJNALDUM 90.last_img read more

I want them to find a way to really get back. You have to trust them that if they made a mistake, they have to figure them out on their own how to fix it. Hopefully, there will come a time that I don’t need to coach them anymore and it’s helping them grow,” said Robinson.The Generals succumbed to their second straight defeat to fall to 6-8.Jerome Garcia paced EAC with 17 points and nine rebounds, while Sidney Onwubere had a double-double of 15 markers and 11 boards in the losing effort.ADVERTISEMENT With the Pirates four games away from completing the eliminations sweep, coach Topex Robinson finally acknowledged the possibility of taking a thrice-to-beat advantage in the Finals, saying his team would be foolish not to grab the opportunity.“It’s there. It’s in front of us. But again, the mindset that we really put in is all of the games that we’re gonna play is gonna be crucial. Even though you think about sweeping the eliminations, it’s not a guarantee that you’re going to win a championship.

MICAT Identifies 68 Historical Sites in Liberia

first_imgThe Ministry of Information (MICAT) has identified 68 historical sites across Liberia that could be used to boost the country’s tourism sector, Louise McMillian, Assistant Minister for Cultural Affairs at the MICAT, said.Speaking at the ministry’s regular press briefing on Thursday, the McMillian lauded UNESCO for sending an international expert, and considering two national experts from Liberia, to identify these areas.She said that some of the identified areas were visited based on a project aimed at putting Liberia on the world tourism map.“In 2013, we applied for World Heritage after visiting the head office of UNESCO in Paris for the general conference. Right after that, we were able to submit about 68 potential historical sites in Liberia including 25 natural heritage sites,” the Assistant Minister added.She indicated that the process of having Liberia represented among the world tourist destinations has begun, noting that the fact that UNESCO sent a consultant from Gambia, who worked alongside two local Liberian consultants for fact findings, is a clear signal for the country.McMillian added that “these experts are paid by UNESCO to identify out of the 68 historical sites which one (s) will be recognized as tour sites in the country.”“We did not visit all of the 68 identified sites because of time, but we visited a few including the Providence Island, Ducor Hotel, Kpatawee Waterfall in Bong County, Mount Nimba, Lake Piso in Cape Mount and the Blue Lake in Bomi County,” she said.The Gambian expert, Baba Ceesay, said their visits to these potential historical sites were to gather preliminary information for the nomination of places that could be recognized based on world standards.“We have visited at least five counties and I have learned part of the observation and preliminary responses to World Heritage criteria. To be on the world heritage list, one must fulfill one of 10 inscription-criteria as well as the condition of protection and management system,” said Ceesay.Meanwhile, based on his assessments so far, Ceesay said that “Liberia stands a better chance to achieve the World Heritage criteria.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Liverpool to unveil Dalglish Stand against Man Utd

first_img0Shares0000Kenny Dalglish won three European Cups during his 13-year playing career at Liverpool © AFP/File / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 6 – Liverpool will officially unveil the newly named Kenny Dalglish Stand at their match with fierce rivals Manchester United next week, the club said on Friday.The Premier League giants announced that Anfield’s Centenary Stand would be renamed the Kenny Dalglish Stand earlier this year to commemorate the player’s contribution to the club both on and off the field. Dalglish, 66, won multiple league titles and three European Cups during a glittering 13-year stint as a player and in two managerial tenures.A special mosaic will be revealed across the stand and the Kop ahead of kick-off on October 14 and the matchday programme will feature a cover dedicated to the former player and manager.“It is testament to Liverpool’s history and status that we are not lacking in truly great individuals, whose names could easily grace a stand at Anfield,” principal owner John W. Henry said earlier this year.“But in Kenny Dalglish we have a person who carries such immense significance to the fabric of this club, so it feels somewhat incumbent on us to recognise this in a manner that is befitting to the man.”As well as his role in Liverpool’s golden era in the 1970s and 1980s, Dalglish also received plaudits for supporting victims’ families after 96 fans died in the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster.Anfield has two sets of gates dedicated to former managers — the (Bill) Shankly Gates and (Bob) Paisley Gates — but none of its stands currently carries the name of an individual.The Kenny Dalglish Stand sits across the pitch from Anfield’s giant Main Stand, which was reopened last year after work to increase its capacity by 8,500 seats.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Monsoons seize upon opportunity

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Champign injured her left leg in the third quarter. On an inbounds play, under full-court pressure, the 6-footer went after a loose ball and ended up crashing to the floor, and she never re-entered the game. After that, the Eagles (9-11) could hardly generate offense, and Mayfair (10-5) outscored them 12-3. Tiffany Wilson of Mayfair scored 11 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Dijon Franklin had 10 points and five assists. Glenn got 10 points and 11 rebounds from Brandi. Champign finished with nine points and seven rebounds, and Michelle Nunez had nine points. “Mayfair outhustled us,” Parra said. “If you think about it, Mayfair only took one outside shot. Dijon hit one. The majority (of their points) came from wide-open layups because we weren’t helping each other enough. If we did help, we weren’t boxing out. That’s when the Monsoons’ full-court pressure defense and their post players did the most damage inside as they pulled away to a 10-point lead and eventually won 55-39. “We weren’t going to let the big girls beat us,” Mayfair coach Kevin Cormier said. “It was our pressure that made the difference. They are hard to get around. You have to do a lot of good things defensively to stop them.” “It came down to fundamentals and we didn’t have the fundamentals tonight. I think when Champign gets into foul trouble (it creates problems for us). We become a normal team. “That hurt us in the first half and her injury (hurt us) in the second.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set!center_img A very positive thing going for coach Linda Parra and the Glenn High girls basketball team is that Brandi Hood and her twin sister, Champign, are strong rebounders who know how to use their wide frames to create scoring opportunities in the post. However, if one or both are off the floor, the Eagles face a greater challenge and Mayfair capitalized on Friday night in Suburban League action. Until Champign got into foul trouble midway through the second quarter, the sisters kept the Eagles close. last_img read more

Jurgen Klopp says he has a lot of Liverpool issues to discuss with Brendan Rodgers

first_img Rodgers is widely remembered for almost ending Liverpool’s wait for a Premier League title – and by making some truly awful signings Klopp and Rodgers will come face-to-face on the touchline this weekend for a charity match at Celtic Park, as two star-studded teams led by Stiliyan Petrov and James Milner take on each other in ‘A Match for Cancer’.A host of top stars from the past and present are due to play, including John Terry, Jermain Defoe, Henrik Larsson, Scott Brown, John Arne Riise, Luis Garcia, Dirk Kuyt, John Hartson and Robbie Keane.The game will also represent the first time the two managers have met in the opposing dugout since Klopp replaced Rodgers as Reds boss.And it seems Klopp has a few questions for his predecessor.From a Liverpool fan’s point of view, the list would be a fairly long one – Dumping Steven Gerrard? Signing Christian Benteke for £32m? That jumper and suit combo? What were you thinking, Brendan?! Jurgen Klopp had a message for his ‘landlord’ Brendan Rodgers – WATCH BELOW! 2 Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted he ‘has a lot to talk about’ with Brendan Rodgers, as the managers prepare to meet for the first time since the German’s appointment at Anfield. 2 But it appears Klopp is thinking a little closer to home… as he sent a hilarious message to his ‘landlord’ on YouTube.After taking over at Liverpool in October 2015, Klopp moved into a house in nearby Formby which is owned by Rodgers – a property the Northern Irishman had previously bought from club legend Gerrard.And in a video message ahead of the match, Klopp joked that he has a lot of questions for the Celtic boss.The Reds boss teased: “We have a lot to talk about…“The plumbing, the electricity, the pool – Brendan, hopefully we can sort a few things!”You can watch Jurgen Klopp’s message to Brendan Rodgers and Celtic fans IN FULL below!last_img read more

Racial Evolution Education Proposed

first_imgSkin color provides a “handy tool for teaching evolution,” says a anthropologist at Penn State.  PhysOrg reported that professor Nina Jablonski believes “The mechanism of evolution can be completely understood from skin color.”  She proposes using the easily-observed trait in humans to teach evolution to students.  “People are really socially aware of skin color, intensely self-conscious about it,” she told the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  “The nice thing about skin color is that we can teach the principles of evolution using an example on our own bodies and relieve a lot of social stress about personal skin color at the same time.”  PhysOrg did not elaborate on how evolutionary theory would relieve stress about skin color.It is typical of Darwinists to try to prove their theory with simple examples of horizontal variation that are not controversial, then extrapolate the examples to say brains evolved from a primordial soup.  Perhaps professor Jablonski should take note of the fact that young-earth creationist Ken Ham uses Scripture and science to explain the human races (actually, just variations on the single human race) from a Biblical viewpoint (see AiG), and also shows the disastrous history of racial politics in of Darwinian thought (AiG).(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
