‘Pogba is sly and Lingard just bang average’

first_imgFormer Manchester United captain Paul Ince has criticised the attitude of the Red Devils players and questioned the way the club is being run in an explosive open letter to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.The former England international has accused the Old Trafford outfit of not being able to control the behaviour of their players, saying things would be different if Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.Ince also criticised individuals, labelling Jesse Lingard “bang average” and among a number of players who “think they’re bigger than the club”. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? He also slammed France midfielder Paul Pogba for his “sly comments” to the media at the end of last season suggesting that he wanted to leave the club.”There’s just so much about Manchester United that isn’t right,” Ince told Paddy Power magazine. “The footballing ­decisions have been mental for a few years now.”The club has fallen far behind the pack. I’d like to think that they will recover, but I think we could be waiting a while.”United are back in the Europa League, which is depressing to even think about it, never mind speak about.”You’ve got to realise that, while United have fallen behind, City and Liverpool have kept advancing. Don’t think for one minute that those teams will give United any chance to catch up, they’ll only slip further behind.”It’s all about personnel for United now. How you improve not only the team but the club, from the top down. You have to start again from fresh.“For me, a lot of the issues come down to the attitude of the squad. The players are doing exactly what they want, when they want, and there’s no control from above.“It wouldn’t happen under Fergie and it wouldn’t happen under Pep Guardiola. Players are dictating to you and the board what they want – and that’s not on.”I get it. You’re a banker – not a football man. You’re absolutely fantastic at bringing in profit and sponsorship deals but you can’t just keep throwing money away on players.”You need someone in who gets football, who has the presence to deal with these players and tell them they can’t demand X, Y and Z from United. Tell them where to stick it.”Players like Jesse Lingard think they’re bigger than the club and the manager. If Fergie was in charge they wouldn’t be doing it, they wouldn’t even still be at the club.Jesse Lingard Manchester United 2019-20“Jesse has been bang average this year and if I’d performed the way he did last season the last thing I would do is post anything on social media. The way he played last season he should be embarrassed.”Then there’s Pogba – the man you spent £89 million on. Why did he wait until the end of the season to say he wants to go with a sly comment in the press? If you’re gonna say it, say it in front of those thousands of fans who go to watch you.”The former England international also questioned the appointment of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, saying someone with more experience should have been given the role in the aftermath of Jose Mourinho’s sacking.The Norwegian, also a former United player, succeeded Mourinho initial on a caretaker basis late last year before landing the permanent job in March.Solskjaer says he wants to change the philosophy at the club and focus on developing young players rather than more established stars, highlighted by the summer signings of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.But Ince believes that strategy is a mistake, though he says United must stick with Solskjaer for now in order to break the cycle of hiring and firing managers.”On transfer business. I hear people say you need to get players in that will work hard and run around for the club – but it’s not about that,” Ince added.“I can come in now and work hard and run about, even at my age. I mean, I wouldn’t last five minutes, but that’s not the criteria that you should want. It’s about quality players with the right spirit and attitude.“Aaron Wan-Bissaka was signed for £55m, a lot of money for a full-back. Ole said he wanted to go down the route of bringing in younger, fresher talent and building the team that way – but that’s not the way to go.Aaron Wan-Bissaka Manchester United 2019“Do you see many youth players in Manchester City ’s team except Phil Foden? No, and they just won the league.“Liverpool have a couple, but the majority of their team are senior, experienced players interspersed with youth.“Youth players today aren’t the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. There’s just not that much coming through the academy.“Yes, pick two or three youngsters but then integrate them with top class, top quality senior players – don’t rely on it.“Then there’s the manager. I said last season you should’ve gone with someone more experienced and I stand by that.“But you have made your bed and now have to lie in it. You have tried the whole binning a manager after a year thing and it’s not worked. Now you have to stick with Ole.”United begin their new Premier League campaign on Sunday when they host Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Attracting Welcoming More Immigrants to Cape Breton

first_imgThe Nova Scotia Office of Immigration is working with post-secondary schools, the YMCA and other partners to promote immigration to Cape Breton and attract more newcomers. Immigration Minister Lena Metlege Diab thanked the Cape Breton Immigration Task Force today, May 4, for their leadership. She also announced $174,000 in funding for some new welcoming initiatives. Cape Breton University, in partnership with the YMCA, will highlight the benefits of bringing immigrants to Cape Breton and Cape Breton to immigrants through community workshops. They will also implement the Cape Breton Immigration Task Force’s plan of action, which government helped fund. Ms. Diab said Cape Breton has a rich history of welcoming immigrants from around the world. In recent years, the population has been declining. “Attracting more newcomers to Cape Breton will move this beautiful, strong and vibrant region ahead,” said Ms. Diab. “We need to work together to bring more families into our communities — people to create and fill jobs, shop and keep stores open, and children to fill our schools.” Ms. Diab also highlighted assets Cape Breton has working in its favour. “The task force has taken the One Nova Scotia report to heart, and brought everyone together to put ideas into action,” she said. “Cape Breton is also home to more than 1,200 international students, and my office wants to work with partners to make it easier for them to stay.” Last year, government opened a new door for international graduates who want to stay in Nova Scotia. Now, international graduates, with a job offer from a Nova Scotia employer, can apply for permanent residency through a skilled worker stream. “Growing our workforce is critical,” said Keith Brown, vice-president, International and Aboriginal Affairs, Cape Breton University. “The future of this region, and our economy, depends on it.” Ms. Diab praised the task force for consulting international students and other newcomers in developing its action plan. She said government is also following the advice of immigrants. Premier Stephen McNeil appointed Wadih Fares and Colin Dodds as joint chairs of the Premier’s Immigration Advisory Council, tasked with promoting Nova Scotia’s interests in Ottawa. While much work remains, progress is clear. More immigrants chose to make Nova Scotia home last year than any time in the past 10 years. More immigrants are also choosing to stay. “By working together, we can build on these numbers, welcoming more people to Nova Scotia, and more to this wonderful island,” said Ms. Diab.

Five killed in remotecontrolled blast in Pakistan

first_imgPeshawar: Five persons were killed and 17 others were injured in a remote-controlled blast in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday, police said.

While five persons died, the 17 injured, which included three policemen, were shifted to a district headquarter hospital. Officials are yet to ascertain whether Khan died in the incident. KPK Information Minister Shaukat Ali Yusafzai said an old land dispute between Khan and the people of Dogdarra valley could be behind the blast. Yusafzai said the three government security guards of Khan were injured in the blast. Earlier, two suicide blasts targeting Khan had been carried out, though he managed to survive on both occasions.last_img read more

Prince Charles Marks 50th Anniversary Of Cystic Fibrosis Trust

first_imgThe Prince of Wales praised the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as he marked becoming its Patron by visiting patients and staff at a leading hospital.The Prince of Wales meets staff at the Royal Brompton HospitalCredit/Copyright: www.princeofwales.gov.uk/His Royal Highness toured the cystic fibrosis centre at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London and chatted to people receiving treatment.The trust is now in its 50th year and in May The Prince succeeded Princess Alexandra, who had been Patron since 1968.In an impromptu speech during his visit, The Prince told leading figures from the Trust and the Royal Brompton: “I just want to say, I’m so delighted to have a chance to visit the hospital and the unit here, which I know does such wonderful work on the cystic fibrosis front.“But also I’m so proud to have become patron of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in its 50th anniversary year.“Over all those years I know the Trust has battled in the most remarkable way, together with so many people like yourselves who help to assist patients with this appalling condition.“I just wanted to use this opportunity not only to salute you all for the work you do, but also to wish all those who I know are doing such good work in finding better and better answers to dealing with this condition every possible success in the future.”The Prince also visited people on the hospital’s Foulis Ward, which is dedicated to treating cystic fibrosis patients.The condition is an inherited disease caused by a faulty gene which controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells. It causes lungs and digestive systems to become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food.The Prince chatted to Nicholas Mason, 25, whose lungs have been damaged over the years so he now breathes with the help of an oxygen cylinder.The chemist, from Steyning in West Sussex, told His Royal Highness he was receiving treatment for a recurring infection but should be discharged in time for Christmas.He told The Prince: “Earlier this year I was in for about seven weeks. It gets better, sometimes it gets worse – this admission is going quite smoothly.”Before leaving, The Prince learned about the Trust’s ambitious plans for the future, including SmartCareCF, whereby equipment used to monitor patients can now send the information via a smartphone to doctors, saving on appointments and allowing medical staff to spot problems earlier.Ed Owen, Chief Executive of Cystic Fibrosis Trust, said: “As a long-time supporter of people with cystic fibrosis, the Prince has a deep understanding of the challenges that people with the condition face, including the daily burden of physiotherapy, nebulisers, dozens of pills and exercise, as well as regular hospital visits and admissions.”He added: “Today less than half of people with cystic fibrosis will die before their 40th birthday, but we are committed to changing this. We are redoubling our efforts to beat cystic fibrosis for good, and the Prince’s support will provide a powerful beacon of hope for all those touched by the condition.”Source:www.princeofwales.gov.uklast_img read more

Dhoni credits tennis ball cricket for quick hands behind stumps

first_imgChennai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is lightning quick behind the stumps and the veteran wicket-keeper batsman said it is a skill which he has developed from tennis ball cricket. Talking about his super quick stumpings, Dhoni said, “I think it’s something that’s come from tennis ball cricket. But you still have to do the basics and graduate to that level.

Armenia and Azerbaijan express views on NagornoKarabakh during UN debate

President Serzh Sargsyan of Armenia, speaking on Friday, said the people of Nagorno-Karabakh had two decades ago made a choice “by exercising their right to self-determination, by withstanding the war unleashed by Azerbaijan, and surviving bloodshed to earn their right to live in freedom.”President Serzh Sargsyan of the Republic of Armenia He said conflict settlement talks are continuing under the mediation of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Minsk Group co-chairs. Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov of Azerbaijan, speaking today, said Armenia had flagrantly violated the UN Charter and other documents of international law and perpetrated aggression against his country. “As a result of this aggression, almost 20 per cent of the territory of Azerbaijan continues to remain under occupation and about one million Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) are unable to return to their homes,” he said. Mr. Mammadyarov said Armenia’s leadership “continues to publicly incite the future generations to new wars, violence and aggression and propagate by all means the dangerous ideas of animosity and hatred towards not only Azerbaijan, but also other peoples of the region.” Exercising his right of reply, a representative of Armenia said the comments of Azerbaijan were Cold War-style propaganda that did nothing to bring about a resolution of the dispute. He said Mr. Mammadyarov had misinterpreted the UN Charter and several Security Council resolutions, and was creating artificial delays to any settlement. In response, a representative of Azerbaijan said Armenia had been “carrying out ethnic cleansing on a massive scale” in Nagorno-Karabakh, and would be eventually forced to “cease its provocative policies.” The Nagorno-Karabakh peace process was also the subject of discussions during a meeting between Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Mr. Sargsyan last Friday, held on the margins of the Assembly’s general debate. 27 September 2011Top officials from Armenia and Azerbaijan have expressed their views during the General Assembly’s annual general debate. read more

13 NBA Teams Have Benches Better Than The Knicks

On Tuesday, The New York Times put out a wanted ad in search of a better basketball team for its Knicks beat writer, Scott Cacciola, to follow. (The Knicks, after a dreadful 5-32 start to the 2014-15 season, have begun selling off assets.)Well, I’m here to help. Certainly just about every other NBA team is more entertaining than the Knicks, and some have suggested Cacciola could even find better basketball overseas. But if he wants to stay close to home, there are also plenty of NBA teams with backup units superior to the Knicks.Using a minute-weighted average of ESPN’s Real Plus/Minus (RPM) for each player in games they didn’t start, here are the teams whose benches have added more wins above replacement (WAR) than New York’s entire team thus far in 2014-15 (these stats are from before the Knicks traded J.R.

Newmont Selects GuardVant technology for its Ghana operations

first_imgNewmont Ghana has selected GuardVant’s fatigue monitoring, proximity detection and collision avoidance systems for its operating gold mines Akyem and Ahafo. By combining these safety technologies, Newmont expects a decrease in safety incidents and operating costs as well as an increase in equipment availability.Operator fatigue and close proximity areas of reduced operator visibility ─ or blind spots ─ are widely recognised as two of the leading causes of mining accidents involving mining equipment. “By combining fatigue monitoring, close proximity detection and collision avoidance, Newmont Ghana is combating two very common safety issues at mines,” said Emmanuel Kwame Attifu, IT Country Manager for Newmont Ghana. “These systems prevent accidents and the data generated also enables managers to implement operational changes and develop employee programs that further reduce the number of accidents. The reduction in accidents also positively impacts equipment availability and productivity.”Kwame added, “After an intensive evaluation of solutions, GuardVant was selected as the most desirable solution for the African region based on the maturity of the system in terms of its functionalities, scalability, reliability and reporting structure.”The OpGuard Operator Fatigue and Alertness Monitoring System uses a non-intrusive infrared camera to monitor the operator’s eye closure and head movements for signs of fatigue and distraction, and alerts them when signs of fatigue are detected. OpGuard automatically turns on when a haul truck is in operation, which helps operators easily and consistently adopt the technology.Newmont Ghana selected both ProxGuard and CollisionGuard to reduce close-proximity accidents caused by blind spots.  ProxGuard uses long- and short-range radars and video to detect objects in close proximity. The in-cab video screen immediately displays the view when a sensor detects an object within its range.  CollisionGuard uses GPS and peer-to-peer communication to display the relative position of any equipment outfitted with CollisionGuard on the in-cab monitor. As a result of implementing these safety solutions, the operator’s situational awareness of other heavy equipment, light vehicles, and pedestrians will improve and increase.last_img read more

BHP hails the benefits of the BFX option at Olympic Dam

first_imgBHP Minerals Australia President, Mike Henry, has outlined plans to grow value and improve returns on capital across the company’s Australian operations. Speaking to investors and analysts at a briefing in Adelaide, Henry said BHP’s large, long-life, low-cost Australian assets underpin current margins and future optionality. “The quality, scale, concentration and location of our assets support improvement initiatives, compelling latent capacity options, efficient technology deployment and attractive investment opportunities.”He added: “By sharing knowledge and replicating best practice across our global portfolio, we’ve been able to substantially reduce unit costs at our Australian mining operations over the last five years. But we have further to go. We can make ourselves safer and even more productive, and expect to lower our unit costs by a further 10% over the medium-term. Through strengthening our maintenance capability and processes, including by bringing in expertise from other industries, and through better leveraging technology, our global Maintenance Centre of Excellence is enabling a step-change in maintenance performance across BHP. With our global technology initiatives and asset-level programs to unlock resources and lower costs, we expect our Australian mining operations to deliver $1.6 billion of additional productivity gains over the next two years.”“We also have a suite of attractive medium-term investment opportunities. While these remain subject to our strict Group-level capital allocation framework tests, with average returns potentially exceeding 40%, they are well placed to compete for capital.” Henry highlighted the Brownfield Expansion option (BFX) at Olympic Dam as an example of a project with the potential to deliver sustainable returns to shareholders, government and the local community. Also speaking at the briefing, Olympic Dam Asset President Jacqui McGill, said the BFX option could provide a capital efficient path to increased capacity through accelerated development into the Southern Mine Area.“As we move into the Southern Mine Area we expect to see the copper grade increase to 3% by financial year 2023, which we believe would coincide with a structural deficit in the copper market. If approved, the BFX option could lift production capacity to 330,000 t/y and move Olympic Dam into the first quartile of the cost curve, which is where we strive to be with all our assets at BHP. Any investment however, must compete for capital against all other options, including returns to shareholders.”McGill also outlined longer-term development options that had the potential to significantly increase the volume of copper produced, including the use of heap leach technology. Combined, these plans create significant value and support improved returns both at Olympic Dam and across BHP’s minerals operations in Australia.last_img read more

Borough Memo Offers Update On ACLU Invocation Lawsuit

first_imgThere was no discussion on the topic from the Assembly Members during Tuesday’s meeting but former Assemblyman Stan Welles voiced his opinion on the matter. Tuesday night’s Borough Assembly meeting began with an invocation by Carrie Henson, President of the Last Frontier Freethinkers. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A memo to the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly states that both parties in the lawsuit over the invocation policy have filed motions for summary judgements and oppositions. Story as aired: Audio PlayerAshley-on-prayer-lawsuit.mp3VmAshley-on-prayer-lawsuit.mp300:00RPd The lawsuit, Hunt vs. Kenai Peninsula Borough, alleges the borough assembly’s invocation policy violates the Alaska Constitution. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska filed the case in December of 2016 “in order to ensure that the constitutional rights of every Kenai Peninsula Borough resident are protected”, according to their website. Welles: “Our invocation is the action of petitioning our Lord God for assistance.”center_img Henson: “But mainly today I invoke you, our chosen representatives, who know that laws would be based on fairness, not ancient codes; that policy should be based on reason, not privilege; that ethics should be aimed at well-being, to reduce real violence in the real world; not to appease a deity or flatter a lord.” The trial is scheduled in the Anchorage Superior Court for the week of February 26, 2018. This case is not to be confused with the lawsuit filed by Assemblyman Willy Dunne(South Peninsula) against the borough. The borough reached a settlement with Dunne in July of 2017, where they agreed to pay Dunne $10,000 to partially cover his legal expenses. Trial call for the Hunt vs. Kenai Peninsula Borough case is scheduled for February 12, 2018.last_img read more

Lauderdale, Fla. have selected Fujifilm and are currently deploying Synapse RIS. “Analyzing our practice’s performance in real-time has always been a challenge,” says Claude Hanushak, chief operating officer at Diagnostic Professionals. “The new Analytics Dashboard on Synapse RIS will allow us to quickly and easily see what is happening and allow us to address minor issues before they become major problems.” Other facilities include Radiology Associates (Ocala, Fla.), the State of California, Good Samaritan Hospital, Health Village Imaging, Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, William Newton Hospital, Greenwood County Hospital, Capital Health, and Kansas Imaging Consultants.Highlighted features of Synapse RIS 6.1 include: Synapse Financials for RIS: Next generation practice management solution that incorporates powerful billing and management tools to improve cash flow and increase insurance reimbursements. Data is shared between the software modules to eliminate dual data entry. The new application enables more efficient and accurate billing, while aiding the collection of imaging procedure payments. It also includes extensive custom interfacing features designed to improve staff productivity and a facility’s overall profitability.Meaningful Use: Critical functionality for practices to be able to implement and attest to Meaningful Use and obtain electronic health records (EHR) incentive payments. This module will be available to Synapse RIS customers as of July 2012. Fujifilm has already taken first steps by achieving modular EHR Certification and plans to evolve the functionality to continue to meet requirements as they change.Graphical Dashboards: This feature provides clinical information such as patient wait times, and patient volume. This information is provided in real-time allowing clinicians to address issues immediately, rather than waiting for a weekly or monthly report.Dose Management: Going beyond simple dose capture, Synapse RIS 6.1 provides recommended exposures (customized by end user) with equipment specific weighting, patient level dose estimates, and maximum recommended exposure.As with Fujifilm’s complete medical informatics product portfolio, version 6.1 for Synapse RIS is designed to run in a virtualized environment proven to lower hardware acquisition/maintenance costs and reduce power consumption. It is expected to be available for delivery in the first quarter of 2012.For more information: www.fujimed.com News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Related Content News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more center_img News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Technology | February 22, 2012 Fujifilm Highlights Dose Management and Meaningful Use in Synapse RIS, TeleRIS News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Enterprise Imaging | July 05, 2019 Hyland Healthcare Adds ImageNext Imaging Workflow Optimizer to Enterprise Imaging Suite Hyland Healthcare is launching ImageNext, a vendor-neutral imaging workflow optimizer that combines intelligent imaging… read more News | PACS | June 26, 2019 Mini-PACS Solution for Image Management and Workflow Optimization ImageGrid Mini is a feature-rich, reliable and cost-effective image management and workflow optimization solution, pr read morelast_img read more
