first_imgSolskjaer fumes over penalty call as mundane Man Utd draw with AZ Alkmaarby Freddie Taylor22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveOle Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United were robbed of a penalty in Thursday’s uninspiring goalless draw with AZ Alkmaar.United substitute Marcus Rashford went to ground under a clumsy challenge from Stijn Wuytens in a game that included few chances for either side.The Red Devils did not have a single shot on target in the match, with David De Gea forced into a couple of sharp saves. It was United’s tenth straight away game without a win, and speaking after the game Solskjaer was disappointed his team didn’t receive a spot-kick.”It’s a penalty 101 times out of a 100,” Solskjaer told BT Sport.”How many times this season have we not got penalties? Against Arsenal that would be 2-0, tonight would have been 1-0.”It would have topped off a very good performance away from home against a very good team. We’ve come here and should have won.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Video: Memphis Meteorologist Tees Off On John Calipari, Calls Him A Snake Oil Salesman

first_imgA closeup of Coach Cal.LEXINGTON, KY – JANUARY 09: John Calipari the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats gives instructions to his team against the Texas A&M Aggies during the game at Rupp Arena on January 9, 2018 in Lexington, Kentucky. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)John Calipari coached at Memphis for nine seasons, and almost led the Tigers to a national title in 2008. But given the way he left the program, and the fact that the school had to vacate all 38 victories from that year, he isn’t the most well-liked man in town. After Sunday’s Hall of Fame interview debacle, that fact likely won’t change for some time.Calipari, during an interview after his induction, told reporters that while he loved coaching at both UMass and Memphis, he was at the “little table” in comparison with some of his colleagues. He also said that before Kentucky, he never got to “carve the turkey”, and he had to use “plastic forks and plates.”FOX 13 Memphis aired the clip this week, and meteorologist Joey Sulipeck went off on the Kentucky head coach. Sulipeck called him a snake oil salesman, and jokingly threatened Calipari to come near him when he had a plastic utensil. Here’s full video – we’ve also included a Vine, via Lost Lettermen.FOX13 News, WHBQ FOX 13 It’s a strong take – especially for a meteorologist. We’ll assume that Sulipeck was happy with last Saturday’s Final Four result.last_img read more

People are still trying to figure out what to do says Old

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A long-time resident of the Old Fort subdivision south of Fort St. John says that residents are coping as best they can with having the only road to the community being covered by a landslide that occurred over the weekend.Gord Pardy, who has lived in Old Fort since the mid-1990’s, said that though some of the community’s residents have evacuated since the hillside above the community began to slide on Sunday morning, the majority are still in their homes and awaiting more details from authorities.“People are still trying to figure out what to do,” said Pardy. “We’re hoping to get a meeting with the emergency group sometime this afternoon where we can figure out what our options are. We don’t expect this to be a short-term thing, the slide is quite large and it’s still moving. We’re cut right off.” A spokesperson with the Peace River Regional District said this morning that staff were working on getting meetings with residents and evacuees set up, but that exact times and locations for those meetings had not yet been confirmed.Pardy said that the PRRD has organized riverboats to help evacuate residents, while helicopters have also been seen down in the community.Photo submitted by Bobbi PardyHe said that there are several foot trails that go through the trees below the base of the slide that allows residents to access the Old Fort Road uphill from the slide area, while residents are also able to hike out of Old Fort directly up the hill.

The hill is very steep, it isn’t for everybody. I wouldn’t take my wife up it, and my daughter might not be too thrilled either. Emergency Services have come down it, the RCMP came down that way. Other than that, it’s boat or helicopter.”BC Hydro said that crews are currently working to restore power to 52 customers in Old Fort who lost power on Monday, with electricity estimated to be restored by 6:00 p.m. Tuesday.As for when the Old Fort Road will reopen, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said that it won’t likely be able to provide more details on the landslide specialists’ assessment until later this week.last_img read more

Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Lantern photographerOhio State’s season is still alive.No. 3 seed OSU needed a strong showing in the Big Ten Tournament to improve its odds of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, and the Buckeyes (21-10-6) are well on their way after downing No. 6 seed Michigan State 6-3 thanks to a third-period offensive explosion.The Buckeyes opened the game on fire offensively. Sophomore forward Mason Jobst netted a goal just four minutes into the action on the team’s first shot of the game off the assist from senior forward Nick Schilkey and sophomore defenseman Tommy Parran. Just over a minute later, Schilkey scored a power-play goal off the assist from Jobst and Dakota Joshua.

Senior forward David Gust gave OSU the lead with a power-play goal just 20 seconds into the period off a rebound from a Jobst shot. Gust found the back of the net again just over a minute later with a wrist shot off the assist from junior defenseman Janik Moser, giving the Buckeyes a 5-3 lead.OSU got on the board yet again less than two minutes later, as freshman forward Tanner Laczynski scored off the assist from sophomore defenseman Tommy Parran and junior forward Matthew Weis. That goal marked the end of Minney’s day, as he was replaced by freshman goalkeeper John Lethemon for the remainder of the game.The Buckeyes continued to attack, but did not add another goal, coasting to a 6-3 win.With the win, OSU bolstered its NCAA Tournament resume and moves on to Friday’s Big Ten Tournament semifinals where it will take on No. 2 seed Wisconsin at 4:30 p.m. read more

Switzerland goal should not have been allowed – Tite

first_imgBrazil boss Tite is adamant that Switzerland’s equalising goal should not have been allowed as it was clear that the goalscorer Steven Zuber had fouled defender MirandaThe five-time world champions produced a rather unspectacular display in their opening game after Philippe Coutinho brilliantly curled in the first goal for Brazil.However, the Seleção’s lead would not last with Zuber heading in Xherdan Shaqiri’s corner to equalise for Switzerland.But Brazil were convinced that the Swiss midfielder had pushed Miranda in order to free himself of his marker and were left incensed by the referee’s decision to not disallow the goal.Gabriel Jesus then had a penalty appeal turned down after he was brought down by Manuel Akanji.“I’d like to answer another question in terms of the performance, otherwise it sounds like an excuse for the draw, but I’m not going to run away from this question,” said Tite, according to Sky Sports.“I’m just going to say this once: the Miranda moment was very clear. It’s a very clear play, it’s very, very clear. The second play, yes the penalty you could interpret, but the first one, you can’t discuss. You have to be fair.”Neymar, BrazilNeymar can win the Ballon d’Or, says Ander Herrera Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 An “excited” Ander Herrera believes new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar is a contender for the Ballon d’Or alongside Kylian Mbappe.But his counterpart, Vladimir Petkovic, believes that referee Cesar Ramos made the right call.“We have the VAR and the VAR should provide answers. I just looked briefly at our goal – it was a regular goal, that was a regular duel,” said Petkovic.“You have to create space in order to have an opportunity and the opponent’s defensive players were not really well positioned. It wasn’t a foul.”Regardless though, Tite admitted that his team had simply not been effective enough in front of goal and were deservedly made to pay for it.He said: “We had 20 attempts, but too many balls off-target. If we were a bit more concentrated, we could have made the goalkeeper work a little more given the number of attempts we had. We have to be cooler, a little more precise.“Of course my expectation was a victory, I wanted to win, of course. Of course, I’m not happy with the result.”The draw ends Brazil’s recent nine match-winning run with Serbia now the leaders of Group E after their win against Costa Rica on Sunday.last_img read more

Their injuries are often invisible on the outside. We aim to support survivors and their families to live a healthy life following a traumatic brain injury.Traumatic brain injuries happen from concussions, strokes, brain cancer, assault, car accidents, freak accidents and more.  The longer a person is unconscious determines the severity of the head injury.  Additionally, numerous impacts, even without loosing consciousness, have a long term impact on an individuals health.People with TBIs are more likely to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, ALS and suffer strokes.  The long term effect of repetitive mini concussions (zingers) also lead to CTE.There are few doctors that understand and are able to treat the pain associated with TBIs.  Lance has experienced head pain since his injury on January 22, 2009.  He has tried every narcotic and treatment option available through various Neurologists over the years.  Nothing has worked (severe the trigeminal nerve, Botox treatment, methadone, morphine, eye injections, nerve pills, etc.).  The poor understanding within the medical community has only brought additional frustration to a difficult situation.  We found more information through diligent research over the years post TBI than any doctor has every been able to provide.  The result was starting the TBI Center of Carlsbad to share the information and empower TBI Warriors in their path to their healthiest life.TBIs are considered a silent injury because doctors and others cannot see the injury.  Symptoms include: a short temper, easily confused, difficulty with speech, mental fatigue, more rest needed, heightened and/or altered senses (smell, taste sound, vision), social withdrawal, pain and nausea.  These symptoms do not easily show up on tests and may come and go for years before subsiding, or never subside at all.Lance began working with Dr. Jill Stoddard at the Center for Stress and Anxiety to address his PTSD.  She has a location in Carlsbad that they meet.  Being monocular, he is an amputee.  The emotional weight he carries is a difficult.  His PTSD was measured higher than a soldier returning from combat.  Dr. Stoddard said she would be willing to come on the show as well.last_img read more
