first_img            VICTOR ESPINOZA, STELLAR WIND, WINNER: “Whether the pace was going to be slow or fast…everything changed out of the gate and I was ready for it. I bounced out of there and I was going to figure it out when we hit the first turn. I wanted to see how fast we were going. They slowed it down pretty good, so I kept her closer. That was the best thing because with that pace I couldn’t leave her too much to do.“I have to give Mike (Smith, aboard Tara’s Tango) a lot of credit because Tara’s Tango was really fighting and he was riding her so hard. But Stellar Wind got the job done and she felt great. I know it’s a little bit hot but she seemed to come back really well after the wire.”MIKE SMITH, TARA’S TANGO, SECOND: “I’ve been waiting for this, to run long. In saying that though, I didn’t want to have to make such a long run. But, it was a good tactical move on Victor’s part because I don’t think he wins if he didn’t move on me that early.“He had a horse that was more seasoned, who’s been around two turns several times and it was Tara’s Tango’s first time around two turns. All that happened was that she got a little tired at the end. If that doesn’t happen, I think I get it.” JOCKEY QUOTES JOHN SADLER, STELLAR WIND, WINNER: “She ran very well and had to give away the weight, she gave away five pounds today. With the pace slow she had a long, extended, wide run. The second filly, Tara’s Tango is a very nice filly. It felt like a Stonestreet exacta with Curlin (Stellar Wind’s sire) being so close to Stonestreet’s Mrs. Banke and the late Jess Jackson who also owned the horse that finished second.“I don’t really have anything planned yet. I’ll take her down to Del Mar and then we’ll decide if we want to take her out of town or if we want to run her on the grass. We have two choices with her down there. We’ll see how it goes.” NOTES: Winning owners Kosta and Peter Hronis are from Delano, CA. TRAINER QUOTES KOSTA HRONIS, STELLAR WIND, WINNER: “I think we’d like to keep her on dirt for now. If we stay home here at Del Mar, we’d probably have to switch her over to the grass. If we keep her on dirt, we might go to Saratoga.” -30-last_img read more

View this post on Instagram 🗣 “Para mim é, e sempre será, um privilégio estar aqui e poder vestir a camisola do Sporting CP” @brunofernandes.10 ✍ #SportingCP A post shared by Sporting Clube de Portugal (🏠) (@sportingclubedeportugal) on Nov 26, 2019 at 12:12pm PSTThe Portugal international and club captain will remain at the Alvalade until 2023, unless clubs want to pay £85million for his services.Tottenham came closest over the summer to meeting the then £65m release clause, while Manchester United backed out of any deal because it was too complicated.Many, including Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, praised Fernandes for his quality — but an offer never came in that was accepted.Fernandes said: “It’s a proud moment for me and a recognition of my work, it’s a sign that I’m doing things well.”I have been trying my best to do what is best for the club.”It is for what I did on the pitch, but also showed that I liked Sporting CP and took pride in representing the club.last_img read more

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has with immediate effect declared a State of Emergency throughout the Republic of Liberia. This measure took effect as of Wednesday, August 6, 2014 and is to last for a period of 90 days.According to the President, the State of Emergency is in keeping with Article 86 A and B and of the Liberian Constitution, which calls on the Head of State to exhibit such power when the existence of the state is under threat.It comes at a time when the Ebola virus continues to wreak havoc on the Liberian population, killing over 200 Liberians and over 1000 in the Mano River Union sub-region. The government had earlier put into place some stringent measures in an effort to contain the virus, but these seem not to be working.Addressing the nation late last night on the state-owned Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), the Liberian leader said under the State of Emergency, the government will institute extra-ordinary measures including, if need be, the suspension of certain rights and privileges as mandated by the constitution.She stressed that the virus now poses serious threat to security and welfare of the nation, and beyond the public health risk, the disease is now undermining the economic stability of our country to the tone of millions of dollars in lost revenues, productivity and economic activities.She promised to immediately forward the declaration of the state of emergency to the national legislature accompanied by the explanation of the facts and circumstances leading to the declaration, adding that despite all of the efforts from government and partners, the Ebola virus continues to wreak havoc on the population, especially in eight counties, including Montserrado, which has Monrovia.She said: “…the [Ebola] threat continues to grow. Ignorance, poverty as well as entrenched religious and cultural practices continue to exacerbate the spread of the disease, especially in the counties.” President Sirleaf added that actions allowed by statute under public health law are no longer adequate to deal with the Ebola epidemic, as comprehensively and holistically as the outbreak requires.The Liberian President noted that the scope and skills of the epidemic now exceed the capacity and statutory mandates of any one government agency or ministry. The Ebola virus disease, the ramification and the consequences thereof now constitute the outright existing.“The healthcare system in the country is now under immense strain and the Ebola epidemic is having a chilling effect on the overall healthcare delivery. Out of fear of being infected with the disease, healthcare practitioners are pressed to accept no patient, especially in community clinics all across the country. Consequently many common diseases which are prevalent during the raining season such as malaria, typhoid, and common colds are going untreated and would lead to unnecessary and preventable deaths,” she said.“The government and people of Liberia require extraordinary measures for the very survival of the state and the protection of the lives of our people. Therefore and by virtue of the powers vested in me as President of the Republic of Liberia, I Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia, in keeping with Article 86 A and B of the Constitution of the Republic thereby declare a State of Emergency throughout the Republic of Liberia, effective as of August 6, 2014 for a period of 90 days.”Tha last known state of emergency declared in Liberia was in 2003 under the Presidency of Mr. Charles Taylor, whose government was embattled by armed rebels from all over the City of Monrovia. President Taylor eventually stepped down from office and into exile, leaving the state of affairs to his Vice President Moses Z. Blah (now deceased).The Ebola virus currently has no cure, and has a fatality rate of 90 percent, the aggregate numbers of cases, confirmed, probable and suspected cases in the country has now exceeded 500, with about 271 deaths, 32 of them being healthcare workers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Harambee stars Head Coach Sebastien Migne shares words with deputy captain David Owino during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on September 5, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 5 – Saturday afternoon’s 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Ghana’s Black Stars will be a huge test for Harambee Stars as far as their dream of sitting on the table of kings in African football is concerned.Having started the campaign with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Sierra Leone away from home, another defeat on Saturday will be detrimental to their qualification hopes and as thus, the players have vowed to give their all on the pitch and slay the Ghana dragon and put their hopes alive. David Owino who will take on the captain’s armband with the absence of Victor Wanyama who has not been passed fit after only returning from injury, believes that despite standing against a bigger and tougher opponent, Kenya can get a win in their own backyard.“Training has been okay and everyone is focused for the game and we want to give our best and win. We know that Ghana is a big team with very experienced and mature players but with a right mentality and good attitude, I believe we can get a result,” the defender who turns out for Zambian champions Zesco United said.Owino has acknowledged that coming into the game, the Ghanaians are clear favorites, but notes that playing at home should be motivation enough for them to get results.“Fans should come out in large numbers and support us for the game. We will do our best and promise they will go back home happy,” the soft spoken, but tough tackling defender further said.Harambee stars striker Michael Olunga (background) with defender Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on September 5, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThese are sentiments shared by striker Michael Olunga who will shoulder the burden of banging in the goals that will help the team get off with three points against the West Africans.The forward who scored Kenya’s lone goal in the 2-1 defeat to Sierra Leone says they have pit whatever happened in Free Town behind them and will be focused on getting a better result at home against Ghana.“The Sierra Leone game is behind our backs and we now have to focus on Ghana. It was unfortunate that we lost our first game but we have an opportunity to redeem ourselves. We have to focus on getting a result and knowing two teams will qualify for the group should be enough motivation for us,” the striker said.He added; “If we beat Ghana, then that will mean we have very high chances of qualifying.”Olunga, who began life with new Japanese club Kashiwa Reysol on a good footing scoring and setting up an assist in his first three games hopes he can translate the same form to the national team and continue his goal scoring exploits.“Such are the games that every player looks forward for. We expect a lot from it but it’s going to require a lot of team effort. Each player needs to give 100pc for team and country. We have to rise to the occasion, play the ball in their court and pull out something from the game,” further noted the striker.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img1 Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has hit back at West Brom after his counterpart Jeremy Peace said Saido Berahino was “unsettled” by interest from White Hart Lane.It is understood the Baggies are unhappy with Spurs’ approach to the deal, which only strengthened their resolve to keep £25million-rated Berahino, who scored 20 goals last term.West Brom instantly rejected Tottenham’s two deadline day bids which were believed to only be marginally better than the north London club’s second offer, made last month, which would have only risen to £22.5m with clauses and add-ons.Peace said on Wednesday: “Tottenham’s offers failed substantially to reflect Saido’s true value… Saido has been unsettled to the point where our head coach has not felt able to select him for our last three games. We are now left with the task of repairing the damage created by this unfortunate episode.”It sparked a response from Levy. Without naming West Brom as the target of his frustration, Levy forcefully defended Tottenham’s approach in the transfer market.He also said it was wrong for clubs to make public the news of players requesting transfers, as West Brom did in the case of Berahino last week.Levy said: “We have never, as a club, spoken about another team’s players and I am not about to do so now. However, I do want to make a few general points regarding transfers.“Firstly, there is hardly a transfer concluded across Europe which doesn’t include staged payments. This is particularly so when significant amounts such as £20m-£30m are involved – players don’t come cheaply these days.“Secondly, we do not make anything personal. None of the proposals, discussions or negotiations we undertake involve any personal elements or ego – everything we do is in the interest of what is best for our club.“Thirdly, we never make anything public, particularly in the best interests of the players involved. Making aspects such as transfer requests public is wholly disrespectful to a player.” Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy last_img read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2San Jose-based eBay Inc. is the e-commerce leader, with nearly 200 million users of online auctions and an additional 73 million U.S. account holders of its payment service, PayPal. It earned $1.1 billion on revenue of $4.6 billion last year, mostly by taking a slice of the auction sales on its site. Nearly 113 million people in the United States visited Yahoo or eBay or both destinations in April, according to Nielsen/NetRatings Inc. Thursday’s announcement followed several weeks of rampant Wall Street speculation about the mating dance among the Internet’s heavyweights. At one point, there was even talk that Microsoft Corp. wanted to buy Yahoo. Although it’s not expected to have a financial impact until next year, the deal between Yahoo and eBay seems likely to shake up the competitive landscape. Coupled with Google Inc.’s recent $1 billion investment in Time Warner Inc.’s AOL, the Yahoo-eBay partnership also figures to intensify the pressure on Microsoft to find an ally as it tries to become a more formidable player in Internet advertising. Industry analysts on Thursday identified Inc., the Internet’s top retailer, and, an increasingly popular teen hangout owned by News Corp., as the most logical candidates for a Microsoft alliance. SAN FRANCISCO – Internet powerhouses Yahoo and eBay are joining forces in an alliance that further defines the battle lines in an online brawl with rivals Google, Microsoft and AOL. Under the multiyear partnership announced Thursday, Yahoo and eBay will draw on each other’s strengths in online advertising, payments and communications so they can connect with even more Web surfers than they already do. Shares of both companies jumped on the news, reflecting investor expectations that the deal will open up even more moneymaking opportunities for two of the Internet’s oldest and most successful businesses. Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Yahoo Inc. operates the world’s most trafficked Web site with 402 million unique users and ranks second in the lucrative search advertising market behind Google. It earned $1.9 billion on revenue of $5.3 billion last year, primarily through online ads. last_img read more
