4 days agoChelsea matchwinner Marcos Alonso: We’re getting better and better

first_imgChelsea matchwinner Marcos Alonso: We’re getting better and betterby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea matchwinner Marcos Alonso says beating Newcastle United was the ideal way to return from the international break.Alonso expected Newcastle’s resistance and felt the home side’s patience finally paid off in the second half.”They played in a very compact style so it’s not easy to find space to attack and create chances,” he told chelseafc.com. “In the second half, we did very well and were intense in our play. That makes it hard for them to hold for 90 minutes so we were able to get the goal and the three points.”We were prepared for them to play like that. Maybe in the first half, we were lacking a bit of patience and finesse in the final third but we always had belief that the goal would come.”We have many options in the team and this is good. The team is getting better, we are improving game by game and we need to continue in this way. We are moving the ball quickly, our press is good and we are doing a good job as a team. We have clear ideas and we have to continue in this way.”Alonso felt the three Premier League points were particularly important coming in the first game back from an international break and he emphasised that hard work was paying off with results as we secured a fifth consecutive win in all competitions.”It was very important to win after the international break,” he admitted. “We played with a lot of patience and at the end we got the goal, we kept grafting and got a good reward”It’s a new season with new staff and there’s room for improvement but since the beginning we have improved a lot. We need to keep focused on each game and work hard in training.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Suncor wont approve more oil production expansions until pipeline progress CEO

first_imgWilliams says he’ll wait to see “physical progress on the ground” before he commits to them.The Federal Court of Appeal last week reversed a cabinet decision to allow Trans Mountain construction to go ahead.A U.S. federal judge earlier ordered the U.S. State Department to conduct a more thorough review of the Keystone XL oil pipeline’s proposed pathway after Nebraska state regulators changed the route.Williams says that as a Canadian he found the delays “troubling” but not relevant to the company in the next three to five years.Suncor is officially opening its Fort Hills oilsands mine on Monday as it works to add 10 percent to its production output this year and again in 2019.It has been ramping up production and beat its guidance by delivering Suncor’s share at 71,000 barrels per day, at lower than forecast cash operating costs. Suncor owns a 43.11 percent interest in the open-pit and shovel mine, Total has 24.58 percent and Teck 21.31 percent. NEW YORK, N.Y. – The head of Suncor Energy Inc. says Canada’s largest oil and gas producer won’t move ahead with additional crude production expansions until there’s physical progress on getting pipelines approved.Chief executive Steve Williams told a Barclays investor conference in New York that recent judicial rulings affecting Keystone XL and Trans Mountain pipeline don’t have any short-term impacts on Suncor’s ability to get its product to market.But he says further production expansions won’t be approved next year and into 2020 until there is more clarity on the fate of pipelines.last_img read more

Low turnout indicates conventional voting trend

first_imgNew Delhi: With relatively less number of voters turning out for voting during the second phase of Lok Sabha polling, it seems electorates have given a thumbs-down to campaigning strategies of political parties.According to political experts, the low turnout indicated that voting pattern was conventional and there was no ‘extra’ enthusiasm among voters. “The low turnout reflects that cadre and regular voters have come out of the home to vote for candidates of their choice. It also shows that there was no such passion among voters that they have to vote to ensure the victory of candidates of their choice, which was there in 2014,” said political commentator Arvind Mohan. “The voting trend also suggests that the general election is all about local issues instead of national issues, which is against the voting pattern of previous Lok Sabha elections,” Mohan said, adding that there might be a possibility that ruling parties have not been able to disseminate their achievements at the remote level. “It seems are voters are making their choices on the basis of caste and local issues and not on national issues. It’s is so that some of the regional parties have slowed down their campaigning strategies,” the political commentator said, adding that the situation is worst in Bihar as the caste has taken a centrestage in the campaigning trail. The elections were held on 95 Lok Sabha seats across 11 states on Thursday. The original schedule was for 97 seats, but the election commission has cancelled polling in Vellore (Tamil Nadu) and Tripura East constituencies. The voter turnout of the second phase of polling for Lok Sabha elections 2019 stood at 61.12 per cent. The Voter turnout was highest in Assam with the state registering 73.32 per cent polling, while in 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the highest polling percentage for the second phase was recorded at 82.5 per cent in Nagaland. The poll percentage in Bihar was 58.14 per cent, 68.70 per cent in Chhattisgarh, 43.37 per cent in Jammu and Kashmir, 61.80 per cent in Karnataka, 55.37 per cent in Maharashtra, 74.69 per cent in Manipur, 57.41 per cent in Odisha, 72.40 per cent in Puducherry, 61.52 per cent in Tamil Nadu, 58.12 per cent in Uttar Pradesh, and 75.27 per cent in West Bengal.last_img read more

In a first UK voters oust criminal MP

first_imgLondon: Voters in eastern England will elect a new member of parliament next month after ejecting the incumbent in the first move of its kind, it was announced Thursday. Fiona Onasanya lost her seat after voters in the city of Peterborough signed a recall petition triggered by her conviction for lying over a speeding offence. The 35-year-old was expelled from the main opposition Labour party after she was jailed for three months in January for perverting the course of justice. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportShe had hoped to continue as an independent MP, but 28 per cent of eligible voters signed the petition, well over the 10 percent threshold required to oust her. MPs who receive sentences of less than a year in prison are not automatically excluded from parliament. Following the announcement of the results on Wednesday night, Labour moved a motion in the House of Commons on Thursday for a new election for June 6. It is fielding a new candidate, but is likely to face intense competition in a marginal seat complicated by shifting political allegiances over Brexit. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsOnasanya took the seat from Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives in 2017 by a majority of just 607 votes, and the party will fight hard to win it back. But Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is also hoping to capitalise on the strong anti-EU feeling in Peterborough to try to win its first seat in the House of Commons. Farage himself — a major campaigner in the 2016 referendum on leaving the EU — is reportedly not planning to stand. “We will give it our best shot,” he tweeted. Onasanya is the first MP to be removed by the recall process, which was introduced by former prime minister David Cameron in 2015. It applies to MPs convicted of an offence and sentenced to jail, suspended from the Commons for at least 10 sitting days, or found guilty of false expenses claims. Onasanya had claimed someone else was driving her car when it was caught speeding in July last year.last_img read more

SpursWarriors Is The Best DefenseOffense Clash In NBA History

1995-96✓Magic1647Bulls18271737Bulls It’s practically unheard of for a matchup of this caliber to take place outside the NBA Finals, where both teams’ ratings are necessarily sky-high because they’ve made it through the notorious gauntlet that is the NBA playoffs. For it to happen during the regular season, you’d need two teams flirting with a 70-win pace — and that’s exactly what San Antonio and Golden State are doing this year.It’s fair to ask whether there’s also something bigger going on here: Three of the 10 best combined-Elo games in NBA history1After removing duplicate games from the same playoff series. have taken place in the last 10 months, and two in the last 32 days. Does the NBA suffer from an epic lack of parity these days? Is Elo itself miscalibrated? Those questions are beyond the scope of this post, but know that, by any metric, the Warriors’ and Spurs’ first meeting of the 2015-16 season makes for a titanic matchup.(Yes, we also know that ageless time lord Tim Duncan will be out tonight. Luckily, the Spurs are deep enough to cover for that.)Tonight’s game also poses a more specific question: What happens when historically great offensive and defensive units meet? The short answer is that the Spurs and Warriors are playing at such a high level that we don’t really have a good historical precedent.Here’s what we do know: Defense-oriented teams have a higher probability of winning the NBA title at a given level of (regular-season) performance than their offensive counterparts. This gap only widens as a defense (or correspondingly good offense) becomes more dominant. And great defenses also have a slight edge in head-to-head clashes against great offenses.In preparation for Monday’s tilt, we did some digging into historical battles between the league’s best teams on each side of the ball. It’s a phenomenon that occurred upward of a dozen times per season in the NBA’s first few decades, but it’s getting rarer and rarer in recent years because of expansion, scheduling constraints and a larger playoff field. SEASONPLAYOFFNAMEELONAMEELOAVG. ELOWINNER HOME TEAMROAD TEAM 2015-16Warriors1809Spurs17821796— 1996-97✓Bulls1798Jazz17521775Bulls 1996-97Bulls1792Sonics16781735Bulls 2014-15✓Warriors1802Cavaliers17121757Warriors 2014-15Spurs1702Warriors17881745Spurs The best opportunity we had to witness No. 1s face off in recent years came in 2005-06, when the Dallas Mavericks offense faced the Spurs defense 11 times. Offense prevailed in that case — Dallas won 55 percent of the time, scoring 11.4 more points per game than San Antonio usually gave up that season — but that’s an exception to the general trend since 1951.In 414 meetings over the past 65 NBA seasons,2Today’s Warriors-Spurs matchup will be the first No. 1-versus-No. 1 clash of the 2015-16 season, though it isn’t set in stone that these squads will finish the year No. 1 in their respective categories. the top-ranked defense has beat the top-ranked offense 55.3 percent of the time. In those games, 3Excluding the game in question if it’s a regular-season contest. the No. 1 defense gave up 4.1 more points than their average, but the No. 1 offense scored 5.3 fewer points than their average. Some of that is because the defensive teams have more often been better overall clubs — hello, Bill Russell-era Celtics! — but we can account for this using FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings, which set pregame odds based on the relative qualities of the teams. Elo would have expected the No. 1 defenses to beat the No. 1 offenses 54.9 percent of the time, so the defensive teams are winning slightly more than expected when they face their offensive doppelgängers.That’s the aggregate of matchups between No. 1s since 1951, though. What about since the mid-2000s, when the league finished a nearly decade-long project to overhaul its defensive rules and cut down on hand-checking? The trend is inconclusive: In the relatively small sample of 38 matchups since 2004-05, top offenses are winning less than Elo would predict — yet, they’re also taking more of a bite out of top-ranked defenses than those defenses are doing to them at the opposite end. Those recent rule changes certainly are having the intended effect at a leaguewide level (pace and offensive efficiency are up since the early 2000s); stay tuned to see if it translates to these kinds of strength-on-strength matchups as well.Those are all broader trends, though. What makes Monday’s Spurs-Warriors game historically unique is the sheer quality of each team’s dominant unit. Only four games in NBA history have ever seen an offense 8 points better than the league’s efficiency face a defense 8 points better than that same league standard, and all of those were between the Spurs and Mavericks during the 2003-04 season.4Somewhat under the radar, those Mavs had the best offense — relative to the league average — of all time, although this year’s Warriors might top them. This game will do those one better by pitting a plus-9 offense against a plus-9 defense, an NBA first. 2015-16Warriors1814Cavaliers16601737Warriors 1997-98✓Jazz1742Bulls17811761Bulls Tonight, the unstoppable Golden State Warriors meet the immovable San Antonio Spurs in a showdown between the NBA’s No. 1 offense and its No. 1 defense, two units that aren’t merely at the top of the league, but rank among the best we’ve ever seen. It’s the game of the season — no, check that, it’s the loftiest NBA game ever played according to our in-house Elo ratings. 2011-12✓Thunder1731Spurs17401735Thunder 1995-96✓Bulls1819Sonics17081763Bulls Under such extreme circumstances, it’s tough to say which side of the ball has the advantage — we simply don’t have enough of a sample of comparable matchups. And our other bits of evidence from history are mixed; defenses hold a slight all-time edge, but that may have eroded with recent seasons. (Or not.) Monday’s matchup won’t serve as a referendum in either direction, but it should be a spectacular clash of styles featuring basketball at perhaps the highest level it’s ever been played. read more

Boy Those Toronto Blue Jays World Series Odds Went South Quick

Before any MLB playoff games were played, things were looking so good for Canada’s World Series hopes. (The country’s title drought in hockey gets all the attention, but no baseball champ has hailed from north of the border since 1993, either.) With odds of 19 percent, the Toronto Blue Jays had the best chance of winning the World Series of any team, according to our pre-playoffs MLB Elo ratings.Now? Not so much. The Blue Jays have lost the two first games to the Texas Rangers in their best-of-five American League Division Series. That’s changed their chance of winning it all — as well as everyone else’s.According to the latest Elo simulation of the rest of the playoffs — which includes the Rangers’ victory over Toronto on Friday afternoon but no subsequent results — the Blue Jays’ probability of breaking Canada’s winless streak is now just 5 percent: CHANCE THAT A TEAM WILL … Toronto Blue Jays15641001585 Los Angeles Dodgers1535100522411 New York Yankees15160000 TEAMELOMAKE LDSMAKE LCSMAKE WSWIN WS Kansas City Royals1538100331810 St. Louis Cardinals1549100502814 Texas Rangers1535100%85%43%22% New York Mets1523100482110 Pittsburgh Pirates15540000 Because they’re up 2-0 in their series versus Toronto, the Texas Rangers are now your World Series favorites, though that can and will change depending on what happens the rest of Friday.

Do Blue Jackets feel overshadowed by Ohio State football team

Ohio State football has become a fixture of central Ohio sports since 1890, when the team played its first game in Columbus. Winning 36 conference titles and seven national titles since their inaugural season, the Buckeyes have led the way in putting Columbus on the map in the sports world. Although the Buckeyes are the face of Columbus sports, the city is home to three professional franchises as well, including the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets. Yet, entering their 10th season and lacking the steady success of OSU, with just one playoff appearance on their resume, the Jackets play second fiddle in Ohio’s capital city. But even with OSU’s prominence within the city, Blue Jackets’ right wing Jared Boll said he doesn’t feel like the Jackets play in the Bucks’ shadow. “Obviously Ohio State football has been around forever and they’re No. 1, but you know it’s a different sport and we can’t really look at it like that,” Boll said. “We just have to worry about winning games and hopefully that will draw the fans.” Many foreign-born players, such as Jackets’ defenseman Anton Stralman who is from Sweden, don’t even pay attention to OSU sports. “I’m not too much into football or basketball so I don’t really care about Ohio State,” Stralman said. “I don’t really think about it that way. I think hockey fits into this town; it’s a sports town for sure.” Despite averaging only around 85 percent home capacity at Nationwide Arena last season, compared with OSU annually ranking among the top in the nation in attendance, Stralman said that the bright future of the franchise will continue to attract Ohio sports enthusiasts to their games.     “As we’re getting better I think the crowds are going to pick up as well,” he said. “It is obviously important that we play good, attractive hockey. That’s what gets the fans here.” And with the Buckeyes consistently proving themselves as a national football powerhouse, Boll said there is no reason the two can’t coexist and even support one another.   “The first couple years (with the Blue Jackets) I didn’t really follow them much, but once you live here you kind of grow to like them and you kind of have to like them living in Columbus,” he said. “I enjoy watching the football games, watching them win; they’re a great football team, and it’s always fun to cheer for a winning team.” read more

Guardiola stunned by Mendys Instagram post F hes a lucky guy

first_imgPep Guardiola was left speechless after learning that Benjamin Mendy tagged himself at Hong Kong International Airport on his Instagram story on Friday.Despite returning to action for Manchester City against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup last month, Mendy remains sidelined while recuperating from knee surgery in November.As such, the French full-back will not feature against Chelsea on Sunday for City and was given permission by Guardiola to travel to Barcelona and Paris to help with him regain full fitness.The City boss also confirmed that captain Vincent Kompany will sit out of the Chelsea game as well due to muscle problems.“Mendy is injured and it’s not easy. Meniscus. It is not easy. He needs to re-adapt,” said Guardiola on the club website.“You can’t return and train for two days and you are fit. You have to be careful.”On Friday morning, however, Mendy posted a video of himself on Instagram with the location tag of Hong Kong International Airport.When asked about this one, Guardiola was taken completely aback as he thought Mendy was still at Barcelona.He said: “Wow, I didn’t know. F***, he’s a lucky guy. He said he was going to Paris but Hong Kong is far away, I need to download an Instagram account.“Yesterday he was in Barcelona. It will definitely not be OK if he is in Hong Kong.”Meanwhile, Guardiola will be hoping to see his City side claim a third consecutive win this Sunday against Chelsea as they bid to hold on to their lead at the top of the Premier League.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The Citizens’ 2-0 win at Everton on Wednesday saw them return to top spot in the standings for the first time since December.However, Guardiola is refusing to underestimate Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri who he feels has made progress since their first meeting back in August in the Community Shield despite what recent results may suggest.“People believed managers arrive at good clubs and immediately create something,” said Guardiola.“My feeling when I saw Chelsea at Community Shield was they were already there.“They have been exceptional. Final of Carabao Cup, in Europa League, and Premier League they are there.“They are nine behind with one less game and in the FA Cup they are there as well.“I see them play and I recognise exactly what they want to do.”This is gold!

Time Inc Rationalizing Portfolio as Q1 Shows Continued Decline

first_img Also Wednesday, CEO Rich Battista told investors that Time Inc. is investing in “an aggressive cost re-engineering program” along with “rationalizing” its portfolio — a phrase that usually refers to shutting or selling properties.  It’s a rocky start to 2017 for Time Inc., which last month appeared to have closed the door on acquisition discussions with multiple parties, at least for the time being. Meredith Corp. reportedly valued the company at $18 per share — below the $20 per share that Time Inc. supposedly sought. Time Inc.’s revenue declined by $54 million, or 8 percent, in the first three months of 2017, marking another quarter of contraction for the beleaguered but still giant publisher. Overall revenue for the quarter was $636 million, including $212 million from print advertising (down 21 percent from the same period in 2016) and $119 million from digital advertising, which increased by 32 percent. Circulation revenue also decreased by 14 percent, or $33 million, which the company attributed to changes in frequency across brands, as well as a consumer preference for digital media. Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story reported that Time Inc. had rejected an offer from Meredith Corp. Time Inc. has not confirmed that claim. View the company’s official statement here.center_img As Battista promised a brighter future, former CEO Joe Ripp said goodbye to yesterday. Ripp is leaving his role as executive chairman of Time Inc., as is board member Howard Stringer. Ripp is being replaced by John Fahey as non-executive chairman of the company. Dan Rosensweig, president and CEO of the learning platform Chegg, Inc., has also been nominated to the board.  Operating income was reported at a loss of $26 million, following decreases in revenues as well as large restructuring costs, to the tune of $16 million, that followed a year of layoffs and the resulting severance payments. In an earnings announcement Wednesday, the company also said that it has identified “non-core assets,” which it will begin to divest shortly. It’s not clear which assets will be sold, but the news of a potential selloff comes just days after Time Inc. said it would follow its own strategic plan instead of seeking a sale of the whole company. Shareholders responded unfavorably to Wednesday’s report, with shares dropping from $15.13 on Tuesday afternoon to $12.25 Wednesday morning. At press time, shares had stabilized around $13.08.last_img read more
