Spurs can compete with Europes best – Rose

first_imgTottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose believes the team can compete with best teams across Europe after their performance in the group stages of the competition last season.Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished first in a group that had both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, and Spurs recorded comfortable home victories over both clubs to record an easy passage to the second round where they were eliminated by Juventus.“We went to the Bernabeu and were unlucky not to win that game and then when we played them at Wembley we outplayed them, and not just them, Dortmund as well,” Rose said, according to Sky Sports.“We’ve proved that we can do it. At the minute we’re winning ugly and we’re just waiting for the performance to go with the victories.”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R.

Fletcher loved playing with Rooney and Ronaldo

first_imgManchester United’ own Darren Fletcher, revealed what it was like to play with two of the best forwards in the club’s history: Rooney and Ronaldo.The generation that won the last Champions League at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson was truly brilliant, it was filled with talented players like Wayne Rooney or Cristiano Ronaldo and people like Darren Fletcher had the honor of playing alongside both players.The former Scottish player was able to give a better insight into his career with the Red Devils, he talked about many topics but he was especially excited to mention both of the best players in the modern era who also happened to play alongside him at Manchester United.When Fletcher spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo, the Scotsman revealed that there was a sensation he would become the best player in the world from the very start of his career as the Portuguese forward was a very dedicated athlete.Fletcher first confessed that a lot of people doubted Cristiano Ronaldo’s resolve and determination, but somehow he felt that the star would get to where he wanted sooner rather than later.Out of all the players he shared a locker room with, Darren feels like Ronaldo was the biggest example of how to be a professional and he always followed that example as a player.The brilliant nickname that Cristiano Ronaldo gave Wayne Rooney at Manchester United… https://t.co/vGRHinpEPq pic.twitter.com/EC1QGVpY28— SPORTbible (@sportbible) November 6, 2018It was quite evident that Cristiano was a winner from the very first day he arrived in Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon, Fletcher was there almost from the very start and he recalled the first years of Ronaldo’s career on Monday Night Football for Sky Sports.“He had a mindset that he was going to be the best player in the world from the day when he came into the club,” said Fletcher during the interview.“He took training to another level. At first, people loved the desire but he did get stick for it with people saying: ‘It’s easier said than done.’ But people respected it and liked that mentality of wanting to be the best.”“There were times when he was putting ankle weights on for training and doing fast feet. The lads were laughing at him but he didn’t care and it didn’t deter him.”“Ultimately people respected it. The lads saw it as a bit of banter but deep down they respect that work rate, that desire, and that sheer determination to be the best player in the world, and he went on to achieve it,” added Darren Fletcher on the Sky Sports program.Ronaldo on Wayne RooneyRomelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“I miss him. The future, nobody knows, maybe we’ll play one day together again.” pic.twitter.com/eCp5WAevJM— Sánchez (@OMDItsme) November 5, 2018During the long interview about his career at Manchester United, Darren Fletcher also remembered Wayne Rooney and how both players were the youngest on the squad.Being the newcomers on Sir Alex Ferguson’s team meant that both players developed a unique connection: “Wayne was fantastic,” said Darren.“We were two of the youngest in the dressing room and we built up a good relationship very early. There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked.”“You could tell Wayne was going to go on and be a Manchester United great. The only worry was would a Real Madrid or someone like that come in for him, because that was quite possible.”“But there was no doubt that he was going to go on and win everything, go on and be club captain and end up England and Manchester United’s leading goal scorer – what an achievement.”“I don’t think he gets the appreciation he deserves. Still, people don’t realize how good Wayne Rooney was, and always was, at Manchester United. And again, he was a team player. He sacrificed himself at times for the good of the team,” he concluded.With 80 caps for @ScotlandNT and over 200 appearances for @ManUtd, Darren Fletcher has played alongside and against some of the best around! 💫🗣 Got a question for him?Tweet it to us using #MNF and it could feature on the show! pic.twitter.com/H3kbNmZNhF— Sky Sports MNF (@SkySportsMNF) November 5, 2018What do you think about Darren Fletcher’s take on Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney during his days at Manchester United?

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, July 24 (JIS): On Thursday, July 30, Jamaica will join 133 other countries in observing the inaugural World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on July 24, Chairperson for the National Task Force Against Trafficking in Persons (NATFATIP), Carol Palmer, said that the observance of the day is necessary to raise awareness of the trauma experienced by victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.“Our intention is largely to provide the society with more information on this crime, so they can become fully aware. If every person in the society doesn’t know what is human trafficking, then we have not succeeded in our efforts,” she said.NATFATIP will observe a week of activities, beginning on July 26 with an 8:30 a.m. church service at Hope United Church, Mona, in Kingston. There will also be a national broadcast of the Prime Minister’s message to be aired on the Day of observance, supported by a supplement and inserts in the newspapers. Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Week will end with the Task Force’s participation in the Denbigh Show from July 31 to August 2, in May Pen, Clarendon. Meanwhile, Secretary General of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODOC), Ban Ki-moon, in an official statement for the Day, said that every country must join together to overcome this transnational threat by supporting and protecting victims while pursuing and prosecuting the criminals.“On the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, let us resolve to act as one in the name of justice and dignity for all,” he said.Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad.UNODOC reports that an estimated 2.5 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery.

When they go home, even though Mummy may be loud, we help them to understand there is a way to deal with that. We teach them to deal with conflict. As a child, you have an obligation to honor your father and mother and that is one of the scriptures we teach them.“Every day they also say a pledge and 2 Bible scriptures… “Honor thy father and mother… and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.“They know these things by heart,” she said.Arnette Lunn, a camp facilitator who is also studying to become a Mediator, imparted some of her skills to the children. She explained that it is one thing to recite the pledge, but it’s another thing to know what it means. “We explain what the pledge means; respect for peers, elders, teachers, the community and anyone you may encounter. We also recite the Golden Rule every day … Do unto others as you would have them do to you. Treat people how you want to be treated.”The campers, ages 5-15, who are residents of Nassau Village, Pinewood and the surrounding area, also engaged in basketball and volleyball games for 20 minutes each day along with interpretive dance and sign language classes.Ms. Lunn emphasized that the children were “happy” to be at the camp and were making new friends in a school setting but in a “controlled” environment.The Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development is hosting the “free” camp which is being held at Sadie Curtis Primary School.

That’s just an extra chance given to the opposition. He disclosed to Football Italia.“In my days, Napoli would fight to avoid relegation one year and finish mid-table the other. At that time, you knew you were representing a great city, but now you are representing a big club too.“Now the club has been at the top for years, a side with a precise identity and Carlo Ancelotti can now ‘make the most’ of Maurizio Sarri’s work, adding his own ideas to build on the existing project.Do not miss out on the Serie A action tonight!⚽️📢AC Milan takes on Napoli by 7:30 pm.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Searching for high odds?🤔Bet on our https://t.co/OUHKpAWnGj Special Pick👇🏽 pic.twitter.com/ZTABnFL8Bb— BLACKBET.NG (@BlackbetNG) January 26, 2019“Ancelotti has done really well to not completely tear it down and start again.

Apple to fix FaceTime bug that allows eavesdropping

first_imgApple to fix FaceTime bug that allows eavesdropping (AP) – Apple has made the group chat function in FaceTime unavailable after users said there was a bug that could allow callers to activate another user’s microphone remotely.The bug was demonstrated through videos online and reported on this week by tech blogs. Reports say the bug in the video chat app could allow an iPhone user calling another iPhone through Group Facetime to hear the audio from the other handset – even if the receiver did not accept the call.“We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week,” Apple said in a statement Tuesday.Its online support page noted there was a technical issue with the application and that Group Facetime “is temporarily unavailable.”The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, released a statement warning people about the bug and urging people to disable the app until Apple fixes the issue.Apple is due to report its latest quarterly earnings later Tuesday amid intense investor interest in the company’s financial health. Earlier this month, Apple said that demand for iPhones was waning and that its earnings for the final quarter of 2018 would be below expectations – a rare downgrade from the company.

Two of three victims of deadly Encinitas cliff collapse identified

first_img August 3, 2019 Posted: August 3, 2019 KUSI Newsroom ENCINITAS (KUSI) – Two of the three victims in Friday’s deadly cliff collapse in the Leucadia neighborhood of Encinitas were identified today as a mother and daughter.The women were identified as Julie Davis, 65, and Anne Clave, 35, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. The identity of the third victim, who died at the scene, has not been released pending notification of relatives.Clave, from Encinitas, died at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla on Friday. Davis died at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, also on Friday.The bluff failure happened shortly before 3 p.m. Friday just north of a lifeguard station, Encinitas fire and lifeguard officials said at a news conference Saturday morning.Officials reopened Grandview Surf Beach before noon Saturday with signs posted to the north and south of the cliff collapse asking the public to keep out of the “active area,” Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said.City officials recommended that “given the apparent natural bluff instability, beachgoers should avoid areas near or under the bluffs and keep a recommended safe distance of 25 to 40 feet.”Four search dogs went through the site of the collapse late Friday and officials determined that no more people had been found, Encinitas Fire Deputy Chief Robert Ford said.Two people walked away uninjured after the collapse, Giles said.A lifeguard was in the tower next to the site of the cliff collapse and immediately began to rescue victims. Some good Samaritans helped the lifeguard in the rescue effort, Giles said. The lifeguard tower has since been moved away from the part of the cliff that collapsed.Experts in geology will continue assessing the coastline for any potential collapse threats. Geotech soil engineers said Friday’s failure was an isolated incident, Giles said, and unrelated to the recent earthquakes in Southern California. The failure isn’t affecting structures at the top of the cliffs, he said.“Our coastline is a beautiful area, but the coastline is eroding,” Giles said.
