first_imgArsenal scrape past Vitoria thanks to Nicolas Pepe late heroicsby Freddie Taylor13 hours agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal winger Nicolas Pepe has announced himself at Arsenal after scoring two goals to clinch a 3-2 win over Vitoria in the Europa League on Thursday.Unai Emery threw Pepe on with fifteen minutes remaining with his side behind 2-1 in North London.Gabriel Martinelli cancelled out former Spurs’ winger Marcus Edwards’ opening goal, but Bruno Duarte restored the visitors lead before the half-time whistle.After losing to Sheffield United on Monday night, banners reading ‘Emery Out’ could be seen around the Emirates.An equally maligned Pepe, who became the club’s record-signing in the summer, was called up to replace Alexandre Lacazette.He delivered for his manager, scoring two breathtaking free-kicks to win Arsenal the game.Speaking after the game, Emery lauded his side’s fighting spirit.”Our aim in this competition is to top the group. Each match is a chance to use different players and grow experience and little by little get better. We didn’t play like we wanted but we showed good spirit. It’s a good victory.”We have more information for the away game and for different players it was good to play tonight.”Some players need experience and playing sometimes under pressure at this level and the first half we didn’t play or control the match as we wanted and we were losing so with the substitutions we wanted to take control and impose more. We didn’t play offensively like we wanted but again the players showed good spirit to come back after the first half.”On match-winner Pepe, Emery added: “It’s important for Pepe. He can gain confidence from tonight. When he scores it’s good for him and the team. He’s getting better and he helped us tonight to win this match.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: James Bennett/Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Japan’s shipbuilder Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has held a christening ceremony for the next-generation liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier under construction for a joint venture of Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line).The ship, named Diamond Gas Rose, is the second Sayaringo STaGE type vessel, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding’s newest carrier that achieves significant improvements in both LNG carrying capacity and fuel performance through adoption of a more efficient hull structure and an innovative hybrid propulsion system.The christening ceremony was held on July 6 at Mitsubishi’s Nagasaki Shipyard. Featuring a length of 293.5 meters and a width of 48.94 meters, Diamond Gas Rose will have a deadweight capacity of around 73,800 tons with a total tank holding capacity of 165,000 m3.After completion in August, the Diamond Gas Rose will join the Diamond Gas Orchid, the first vessel of the same type which was completed in late June, in service transporting LNG for the Cameron LNG Project, a project in the U.S. state of Louisiana.The Sayaringo STaGE is successor to the Sayaendo, a vessel highly acclaimed for its improved Moss-type spherical tanks that deliver outstanding reliability, according to Mitsubishi Shipbuilding.The adoption of apple-shaped tanks in the new Sayaringo STaGE has enabled an increase in LNG carrying capacity without changing the ship’s beam, while incorporation of a hybrid propulsion system has significantly boosted fuel efficiency compared to the Sayaendo.last_img read more

first_imgINGERSOLL, Ont. – General Motors and the union representing about 2,500 striking workers at the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont., are expected to resume talks today aimed at ending a strike that’s into its fourth week.The members of Unifor Local 88 walked off the job a little more than three weeks ago on Sept. 17 as union negotiators worked to have GM designate the CAMI plant as the lead producer of the Equinox SUV.The union said last Thursday that the two sides had “worked through a lot of the contract language” but remained far apart on job security and economic issues.Local 88 president Dan Borthwick says the union’s master bargaining committee took a break over the Thanksgiving weekend and met this morning.He says the union’s position will remain the same as it was last Thursday when it meets with the company’s bargaining team.Job security at the CAMI plant has been a major issue, with Unifor seeking to prevent work done by its members from being moved to Mexico, where GM also produces the Equinox SUV.Ontario Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid said Friday that he had spoken with both sides and that neither had asked for government support to keep the Equinox lines in the province.Duguid said the dispute was “rippling through” Ontario’s supply chain economy and urged both parties to reach an agreement.Dias dismissed GM’s latest contract offer last week as “fluff,” saying it still allowed the company to shift resources away from the Ingersoll plant.last_img read more

OSU redshirt freshman defensive end Sam Hubbard (6) defends during a game against Western Michigan on Sept. 26 at Ohio Stadium. OSU 38-12. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorYesterday, The Lantern began its two-part examination of what Ohio State’s starting lineups might look like during the 2016 season after an unprecedented amount of talent depart due to graduation or the NFL draft, which included 16 of 22 starters — eight on offense and eight on defense.The three offensive starters returning — redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, redshirt senior guard-turned-center Pat Elflein and redshirt junior guard Billy Price — will have to quickly integrate with the large number of offensive weapons asked to step up in a big way to keep the powerhouse program afloat.The same will have to be done on defense, which was often considered the bread and butter of coach Urban Meyer’s 2015 squad. The three returning starters there — junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan, redshirt junior cornerback Gareon Conley and redshirt junior defensive end Tyquan Lewis — started all 13 games in 2015. However, beyond that trio the projected starters next season ranged from players splitting snaps to seeing limited playing time to being in high school in 2015.Here is an early glance at OSU’s defense as it turns the page on the next era of talent.On the lineThe players occupying the two ends of the front four seems obvious enough, with Lewis returning to one end and redshirt sophomore Sam Hubbard, who was a key contributor off the bench in 2015 with 6.5 sacks, on the other.Hubbard will be asked to fill the shoes of Joey Bosa, though Hubbard actually registered 1.5 more sacks than the consensus top-10 pick.Almost as important as filling Bosa’s spot with Hubbard, however, is filling Hubbard’s role of picking up snaps on both end positions on the line when a starter gets a breather. The likeliest candidate for that job seems to be junior Jalyn Holmes, who received an extended look in the Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame after Bosa’s early ejection.Things get murkier up the middle, however. Both starters there, Adolphus Washington and Tommy Schutt, were lost to graduation, with not a ton of strong options waiting in the wings.Redshirt junior Michael Hill started a few games in 2015 that Schutt missed with various injuries, so it is reasonable to think he will step into a full-time role next year.But Meyer might have to get creative for the other spot in the interior. It is possible that lower-ceiling players like redshirt sophomore Donovan Munger or redshirt junior Tracy Sprinkle could get the early nods as a placeholder, but don’t be surprised to see Meyer turn to a true freshman to occupy the role.Malik Barrow, a four-star recruit from Tampa, Florida, could be ready to step up from Day 1 if he performs well in spring and fall practice. Fellow Floridian Nick Bosa, the younger brother of Joey, is also a possibility. Recruited as a defensive end, some have thought the five-star recruit could project as a defensive tackle. The hitch with him is that he is recovering from a torn ACL suffered during his final year of high school, so health could hold him back from playing right away.In the middleAs one of the few returning starters, combined with his natural leadership role of the Mike linebacker, McMillan will be the unquestioned captain of the defense. There is a very strong possibility that his junior season will be his final one in college, so another strong season from the Hinesville, Georgia, product, who led the team with 119 tackles in 2015, should be expected.The other two starting linebacker spots, however, are not so easy to figure out.Expect one of them to go to redshirt junior Chris Worley, who would have likely been a starter each of the last two years had he not been beaten out before the 2014 season by the now-departed Darron Lee.The third seems to be an absolute toss-up. Junior Dante Booker and sophomore Jerome Baker could certainly be considered the favorites when camp opens, but a name to keep an eye on is redshirt freshman Nick Conner.Conner broke out with a very strong performance during the 2015 spring game, leading many to believe he could play a significant role as a true freshman. While a knee injury ended his hopes of contributing in 2015, Meyer has made it clear how much he likes the product of nearby Dublin Scioto High School.While Conner’s future will likely lie with inheriting McMillan’s Mike linebacker job, he could get an early head start should he be granted the outside or strong-side linebacker position in 2016.In the backAs with the first two defensive groups, the secondary features one returning starter in Conley. This unit arguably features more talent loss than any other, with safeties Vonn Bell and Tyvis Powell and top cornerback Eli Apple saying goodbye with eligibility remaining.Opposite Conley at the cornerback position should be junior Damon Webb, who saw snaps in seven games as OSU’s nickelback in passing situations.Occupying Webb’s former role as the third corner, therefore, is up for grabs. Redshirt sophomore Marshon Lattimore is probably the leading candidate for the job, but sophomore Denzel Ward, who took the familiar Meyer route of getting his feet wet on special teams, could be keyed in on for a bigger role.The safety spots should be occupied by redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker and redshirt junior Cam Burrows, simply by process of elimination of the thinnest position on the team.Unless Webb or Ward shift from cornerback to safety, those two are really the only candidates on the roster with any experience. Hooker appeared in each game in some capacity in 2015, while Burrows was ahead of him on the depth chart before suffering a season-ending foot injury midway through the year.That projection, however, hinges on the health of junior Erick Smith, who should have a starting spot with his name on it should he recover fully from a torn ACL suffered in early November. But ACL injuries are no joke when it comes to both getting healthy and regaining effectiveness, so it’s a big question mark if Smith will be able to step into a large role when the season begins on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green. read more

Ohio State redshirt junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon scores in the first half on a 16-yard touchdown pass from quarterback J.T. Barrett. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorBy the time Ohio State’s slow-arriving student section filled up, the Buckeyes had already taken a 7-0 lead against UNLV as speedy H-back Parris Campbell raced 69 yards for the opening touchdown on the offense’s second play. The Scarlet and Gray extended the early lead, continued to build upon it and never allowed the Rebels to even feign a threat as Ohio State dominated, winning 54-21 Saturday afternoon at Ohio Stadium.Redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett marched his team down the field at will against an overmatched, less-talented UNLV defense, completing 12-of-17 passes for 209 yards and five touchdowns and subbed out before halftime. “Probably the same thoughts as everybody else,” coach Urban Meyer said. “Let’s go do it against a team that’s equally matched.”Seven players — wideouts Terry McLaurin, Johnnie Dixon, K.J. Hill, Binjimen Victor, Campbell and walk-on C.J. Saunders and tight end Rashod Berry — caught touchdowns for the Buckeyes, the most in a single game in Ohio State history. Barrett overthrew sophomore wideout K.J Hill on one of his first passes of the game, but settled in as the Buckeyes scored on all but one of his drives. Campbell led Ohio State with three catches for 105 yards, but fumbled near the goal line on his team’s third drive of the game.The Rebels offense stood no chance facing off against the Buckeyes’ stout defense. An aggressive, blitz-heavy defensive front pressured redshirt freshman quarterback Armani Rogers the entire game. Late in the first quarter, backed up at the 2-yard line, defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones stuffed a run and forced Ohio State’s first safety of the season.Ohio State redshirt sophomore wide receiver K.J. Hill (14) runs the ball in for a touchdown in the second quarter of the Ohio State- UNLV game on Sep. 23. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe Buckeyes racked up four sacks and a season-high 13 tackles for loss. Sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa led the Buckeyes with three tackles behind the line of scrimmage.“It builds confidence,” Bosa said. “And it just allows you to go through your progressions and just get more used to playing out there. It’s helpful and nice.”Rogers competed 11-of-19 passes for 88 yards. The Rebels, buoyed by junior running back Lexington Thomas’ 55-yard touchdown, rushed for 41 yards on 176 carries.With 3:32 left in the second quarter while leading 37-7, redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins replaced Barrett, and first-team All-American center Billy Price subbed out of the blowout.Haskins threaded the needle to Saunders for his first touchdown of the game, a 28-yard strike across the middle. The strong-armed quarterback went 15-for-23 and 228 yards and tossed two touchdowns. He hit Berry late in the third quarter who rumbled for a 38-yard touchdown, the first of the defensive end-turned-tight end’s career.“I was just determined to get to the touchdown, get into the end zone and [I] was speechless,” Berry said.Haskins later threw an interception to linebacker/defensive back Javin White, who took it 65 yards for a touchdown, the first pick-six thrown by an Ohio State quarterback this year.“That’s inexcusable. Throw it right to the guy,” Meyer said. “Obviously it’s a young player, a freshman. And they’ve gotta go through that.”Freshman running back J.K. Dobbins took 14 carries 95 yards. Once again, redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber did not play. He has dealt with a hamstring injury since the beginning of fall camp and missed the first game of the season. Defensive tackle Robert Landers, offensive guard Matt Burrell, linebacker Chris Worley and cornerback Shaun Wade also did not play for Ohio State due to injuries.Ohio State will look for its third consecutive victory when the Buckeyes head to Piscataway, New Jersey, next Saturday to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (1-2) at 7:30 p.m. read more

Callejon is a great player, but we have Suso who is a champion and I would keep him close, and if Callejon should come too, so be it.”He also shared his opinion on the current affair around Buffon:“Buffon is partly justifiable because such a call 30 seconds from the end is painful but I think he has reviewed it and knows he was wrong. He is a great champion, it can happen to go beyond the lines sometimes but it is understandable.”last_img read more

I think he was very sensitive about this.”“In his final weeks at PSG, you could see a change in his personality and a change in the way he was doing things. He knew he could not win the battles at this club,” he explained.“It was not just Neymar. It was other players who would try to influence things and if they didn’t like how something was being done, they didn’t go to the manager, they went to the president.”last_img read more

first_imgWhile the 2.0 strategy is aimed at consolidation, the Quad 3.0 strategy focuses on the company’s ability to expand their capabilities quickly with appropriate resources to scale significantly, according to Quadracci in the Q4CC. The most recent merger for the company took place in March of this year when the company took majority ownership stake of Rise Interactive for an undisclosed amount, and the other consolidations made by Quad in the printing industry from most to least recent are Ivie & Associates, Marin’s International, Brown Printing, UniGraphic, Vertis Communications, and Williamson Printing Corporation. LSC Communications has also participated in shrinking the industry with five acquisitions of its own in 2017. Between July and November of last year, the company purchased Creel Printing, Fairrington Transportation, Publishers Press, Cenveo Envelope Group, and Clark Group, in that order. “Since becoming a standalone public company at the end of 2016, LSC Communications has added critical scale, capabilities and technologies,” said Thomas J. Quinlan III, LSC Communications chairman, CEO, and president in a statement. “We have done so through acquisitions and divestitures as we work to strengthen our position as a leading innovator in print and multichannel logistics. We are now taking the next major step in our evolution.”The newly combined company will be headed by Joel Quadracci, who will serve in the same capacity. The board of Quad will also expand to include two members from LSC Communications’s existing board, however the names of those board members have not yet been announced. For shareholders of the acquired printer, under the terms of the agreement, each LSC Communications share owned will transfer into 0.625 shares of Quad Class A common stock. The former LSC shareholders will represent roughly 29 percent total ownership of the combined company, as well as hold approximately 11 percent of the vote, which supports Quad’s long-term strategic vision of preserving the Quadracci Family’s leadership and voting control within the company.As a result of the merger, Quad estimates $135 million in net synergies between the elimination of redundant staff, operations consolidation, and creating efficient supply chain organizations, and it expects this to be achieved in no more than two years. “Our clients will benefit from a highly efficient print platform, and the additional cost- and time-saving opportunities generated from enhanced production and distribution efficiencies and flexibility, expanded mailing and logistics services, and strengthened print management services,” said Quadracci. “We are confident in the synergies we will generate from this transaction.” Two of the top magazine printers in the U.S. are set to merge next year, continuing in the years-long trend of consolidation within the printing industry.Quad/Graphics will acquire LSC Communications in an all-stock transaction with an approximated value of $1.4 billion, which is expected to close in mid-2019. As of Sept. 30 of this year, the estimated combined annual revenue of the company would have been $8 billion. “This is a defining moment in Quad’s 47-year journey,” said Joel Quadracci, Quad/Graphics chairman, president, and CEO, in a statement. “Together with LSC Communications, we will create a compelling combination of talent, expertise and client technology to further fuel our Quad 3.0 marketing solutions transformation and strengthen the role of print–a proven and trusted media form in today’s multichannel world.”This acquisition will mark the ninth merger for Quad within the decade. According to Quadracci in the printer’s 2017 Q4 Conference Call, these mergers are part of the Quad 2.0 transformation plan, which started in 2010 with the $1.3 billion purchase of World Color and is aimed at making the company a “disciplined industry consolidator.”last_img read more
