Monchi reiterates confidence in Di Francesco at Roma

first_imgAS Roma sporting director Monchi announced that the club retain “100%” confidence in under-fire coach Eusebio Di FrancescoThe Giallorossi blew a two-goal lead on Saturday at Cagliari to settle for a 2-2 draw, which left them only eighth in the Serie A table after 15 games.It means that Roma’s five-season run of finishing in the top three in the league is in danger of ending with reports in the Italian media suggesting Di Francesco’s future is on the line.The Italian himself declared that his focus remains on the pitch with Monchi now announcing that the club board retain full confidence in him.“Unfortunately I have talked about this too many times: the position of the club has not changed and our confidence [in the coach] is the same,” Monchi told Sky Italia.Serie A, Gian Piero GasperiniGasperini reveals why he rejected Inter Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.“When I have belief in a professional I do not easily change my mind. I am a bit confused when I read things about the directors: that there is a war between us, that I want to walk away, that I’m getting angry. Here we have 100% belief in the coach.“It is the same coach who finished third last season and took us to the Champions League semi-finals – nothing has changed.“Sometimes the responsibility falls on all of us, not just one person: we can’t put everything on the coach.”Roma will face Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic tonight at 18:55 (CET) with the hope of avoiding defeat to book a last-16 spot from Group G.last_img read more

Gary Neville The transfer market is stuck

first_imgSky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes that the inflated fees have deterred clubs from buying and selling players in the January transfer market.The Premier League January spending has dropped by £320m in the past transfer window. Top-flight English clubs spent £140m this January, compared to £465m in 2018.Tottenham made history and became the first Premier League team not to bring in a single player for two successive transfer windows.Neville believes the inactivity in the January’s transfer window is caused by inflated prices in the market. He thinks that many teams can not afford to improve their squad.Neville said: “We asked this week: Are we surprised that Arsenal didn’t bring in a defender? Are we surprised Tottenham didn’t bring in a replacement for Kane, or anybody?“But the problem is, they can’t get the players available. They cannot get them. Honestly, it’s a real issue.“Clubs are not letting go for normal prices, and clubs are now thinking: Do I go and pay over the odds in January? Am I going to get the player I want?“I genuinely believed Arsenal would have strengthened more than they have done if they believed something was available.“Would Manchester United have brought in Raphael Varane, or Harry Maguire for example, if they believed they were available for decent prices in this transfer window? One hundred percent they would. Would Manchester City have brought in a left-back, the one they wanted? Of course, they would.“But they’re not there, they can’t get them! They would have tried, asked the question, made the noises underneath with the agents and the scouting departments, but they’re just not there.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“It’s a real problem, the market is stuck in some ways.”Newcastle United, on the other hand, broke their transfer record with the £20m signing of Miguel Almiron. The Paraguayan playmaker signed for the Magpies from the MLS side Atlanta United.Gary Neville also believes that for the clubs is easier and much cheaper to sack the manager instead of getting him the players he needs.“I think certain clubs will always try and panic. But the panic now doesn’t actually center around buying, it’s usually centered around the manager. What they normally do now is change the manager… clubs can do it twice in a season!“For clubs at the bottom, a change of players will cost them money, they could end up with a group of players who won’t sue them if they go down.“And it’s the same at the top; is Daniel Levy going to panic to get in the Champions League, or win the league? Does Levy buying four players for £100m guarantee you the league? No, and he’s probably not even going to get the players he wants!“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United would have bought a couple of central defenders if he could have got them, and Arsenal would have done the same. All the top teams would have bought in positions they need. But they can’t get them.”last_img read more

Soy Growers Cheer Release of NAS Study on GeneticallyModified Crops

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) welcomes a report issued today by the National Academy of Sciences Board on Agriculture and Natural Sciences that points to the safety and benefits of continued use of genetically modified crops for soybean producers, with specific regard to economic and environmental impact. The NAS report, Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects, reviewed a broad range of studies and reaffirmed that there are no adverse health impacts associated with the use of GMOs for either humans or animals. ASA President Richard Wilkins, a farmer from Greenwood, Del., issued the following statement in response to the NAS report:“Today, the National Academy of Sciences reaffirmed what health and safety officials have confirmed for two decades: GMOs are safe. The scientists at the Academy also confirmed what we as farmers also have known for 20 years – that GMOs provide significant benefits for producers. They help us manage pests, weeds and reduce on-farm inputs, and they do it with absolutely zero risk to people or animals. This is an exceptionally in-depth report, and we hope that it will move the dialogue on GMOs to the next chapter.“The other side of the GMO debate continues to attempt to engage our industry on the safety of and science behind genetic engineering. Yet, as we’ve seen today, NAS and the world’s most respected health and scientific organizations have unequivocally settled that question.“The report also points to the significant advances we are seeing in the science of plant breeding techniques. Farmers can only benefit from these technologies if we continue to have access to them. The NAS report is a very positive step, and we hope that those in charge of approving these new breeding techniques and getting them in the hands of farmers as soon as possible will take note.”last_img read more

Angular 80 releases with major updates to framework Angular Material and the

first_imgAngular 8.0 was released yesterday as a major version of the popular framework for building web, mobile, and desktop applications. This release spans across the framework, Angular Material, and the CLI.   Angular 8.0 improves application startup time on modern browsers, provides new APIs for tapping into the CLI, and aligns Angular to the ecosystem and more web standards. The team behind Angular has released a new Deprecation Guide. Public APIs will now support features for N+2 releases. This means that a feature that is deprecated in 8.1 will keep working in the following two major releases (9 and 10). The team will continue to maintain Semantic Versioning and a high degree of stability even across major versions. Angular 8.0 comes with Differential Loading by Default Differential loading is a process by which the browser chooses between modern or legacy JavaScript based on its own capabilities. The CLI looks at the target JS level in a user’s tsconfig.json form ng-update to determine whether or not to take advantage of Differential Loading. When target is set to es2015, CLI generates and label two bundles. At runtime, the browser uses attributes on the script tag to load the right bundle. for Modern JS for Legacy JS Angular’s Route Configurations now use Dynamic Imports Previously, lazily loading parts of an application using the router was accomplished by using the loadChildren key in the route configuration. The previous syntax was custom to Angular and built into its toolchain. With version 8, it is migrated to the industry standard dynamic imports. {path: `/admin`, loadChildren: () => import(`./admin/admin.module`).then(m => m.AdminModule)} This will improve the support from editors like VSCode and WebStorm who will now be able to understand and validate these imports. Angular 8.0 CLI updates Workspace APIs in the CLI Previously developers using Schematics had to manually open and modify their angular.json to make changes to the workspace configuration. Angular 8.0 has a new Workspace API to make it easier to read and modify this file. The workspaces API provides an abstraction of the underlying storage format of the workspace and provides support for both reading and writing. Currently, the only supported format is the JSON-based format used by the Angular CLI. New Builder APIs to run build and deployment processes Angular 8.0 has new builder APIs in the CLI that allows developers to tap into ng build, ng test, and ng run to perform processes like build and deployment. There is also an update to AngularFire, which adds a deploy command, making build and deployment to Firebase easier than ever. ng add @angular/fire ng run my-app:deploy Once installed, this deployment command will both build and deploy an application in the way recommended by AngularFire. Support for Web Worker Web workers speed up an application for cpu-intensive processing. Web workers allow developers to offload work to a background thread, such as image or video manipulation. With Angular 8.0, developers can now generate new web workers from the CLI. To add a worker to a project, run: ng generate webWorker my-worker Once added, web worker can be used normally in an application, and the CLI will be able to bundle and code split it correctly. const worker = new Worker(`./my-worker.worker`, { type: `module` }); AngularJS Improvements Unified Angular location service In AngularJS, the $location service handles all routing configuration and navigation, encoding, and decoding of URLS, redirects, and interactions with browser APIs. Angular uses its own underlying Location service for all of these tasks. Angular 8.0 now provides a LocationUpgradeModule that enables a unified location service that shifts responsibilities from the AngularJS $location service to the Angular Location Service. This should improve the lives of applications using ngUpgrade who need routing in both the AngularJS and Angular part of their application. Improvements to lazy load Angular JS As of Angular version 8, lazy loading code can be accomplished simply by using the dynamic import syntax import(‘…’). The team behind Angular have documented best practices around lazy loading parts of your AngularJS application from Angular, making it easier to migrate the most commonly used features first, and only loading AngularJS for a subset of your application. These are a select few updates. More information on the Angular Blog.

Brazilian corruption probe reveals possible links to Costa Rica Guatemala

first_imgRelated posts:Explainer: Why is Costa Rica’s former President Laura Chinchilla suing a hotelier over a Facebook post? No clear path forward, opposition lawmakers lament after Solís’ 100-day report Lula’s bridge to nowhere hints at global reach of Brazil graft Brazil corruption: Ruling party heavyweight sentenced to 15 years in prison The names of Costa Rica’s President Luis Guillermo Solís and former National Liberation Party (PLN) presidential nominee Johnny Araya were among several prominent figures listed on a handwritten note allegedly redacted by José Aldemário Pinheiro Filho, the president of Brazilian contractor OAS and a target ofan ongoing corruption investigation in the South American country.The note was seized by Brazilian police in São Paulo, and some of the names have dollar figures written next to them, the Brazilian newspaper Valor Econômico reported on Tuesday.Solís’ name does not have any dollar figures scribbled next to it, but Araya’s does. Also on the list is Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina.The Costa Rican government paid OAS $35 million ($6.5 million in December 2013 and $28.5 in March 2014) during President Laura Chinchilla’s 2010-2014 term as part of a settlement for a canceled $524 million San Ramón Highway concession.According to Valor Econômico, the document seized at Pinheiro’s home suggested that he had set aside more than $1 million for Antonio Solá, a Spanish political campaign consultant overseeing Alejandro Sinibaldi’s bid for president of Guatemala in November 2015. Solá also worked as a campaign consultant for Haitian President Michel Martelly and former Mexican President Felipe Calderón, the newspaper noted. Sinibaldi served as one of Pérez Molina’s ministers from January 2012 to September 2014, when he announced his candidacy.Under a section titled “Costa,” Luis Guillermo Solís’ name appeared above Johnny Araya’s with the phrase (in Portuguese) “Solution Johni Araia 5 X 35= US$ 1,750.” That was followed by “Balance – US$1,250.”As of Monday, Pinheiro was ordered to be held in preventive detention while Brazilian prosecutors investigate allegations of money laundering, organized crime and corruption. He is one of 36 suspects in the case. Documents federal police seized allegedly show that Pinheiro sought billion-dollar contracts in the construction of ports, airports, water management systems, hydroelectric dams, highways and rail projects in Central and South America, the Caribbean and Africa, Valor Econômico reported.President Solís issued a statement Tuesday afternoon denying any involvement with the investigation and OAS.“The Presidency of the Republic of Costa Rica categorically rejects any insinuation that attempts to draw a relationship with an article in circulation and an investigation underway in Brazil,” the statement said.Solís’ ruling Citizen Action Party (PAC) issued a second statement rejecting any connection between the president of Costa Rica and the OAS investigation. The PAC statement cited former campaign treasurer Leda Zamora as saying that Solís’ presidential campaign did not accept any money from corporations, legal entities (personas jurídicas) or any foreign donors in accordance with Costa Rican election law.Valor Econômico said it had not received comment from the Costa Rican consulate in São Paulo.Araya told the news website that he did not know why his name was on the document, and he denied knowing Pinheiro. He said he had no knowledge of what the figures next to his name meant.The Tico Times spoke with Araya’s former campaign manager, current PLN lawmaker Antonio Álvarez Desanti, who said Tuesday night that Araya’s campaign did not receive funds from OAS.“Johnny [Araya] spoke out against the [San Ramón Highway] project, which put him at odds with President Laura Chinchilla. It would seem strange to me to reject the project if the campaign received funds,” Álvarez said.Álvarez added that he had not spoken to Araya about the OAS investigation or why his name appeared on the document.An ethics investigation ultimately cleared President Chinchilla of any wrongdoing in the granting of the San Ramón concession to OAS.In August, a report by Costa Rica’s Comptroller General dismissed allegations that former Public Works and Transport Minister Pedro Castro, also a former OAS consultant, had used his office to influence the San Ramón Highway contract.

Experts confirm increased activity at Turrialba Volcano

first_imgTall, white columns of vapor and gas on Wednesday morning surprised residents near the Turrialba Volcano, east of Cartago, as the western crater registered increased activity that formed a 1.5-kilometer fumarole, the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported.María Martínez Cruz, a volcanology and geochemistry expert at OVSICORI, explained that emissions don’t yet include ash, a situation that last year affected residents north of Cartago and as far away as the provinces of San José, Heredia and Limón.“We haven’t received any reports of ashes being emitted, and the gas and vapor plume has maintained its size. At its peak it reached a maximum height of 4 kilometers above sea level, or some 1.5 kilometers above the crater,” Martínez said.Reports from both OVSICORI and the University of Costa Rica’s National Seismological Network (RSN) state that activity at Turrialba can be considered within normal parameters and is caused by the large amount of rainfall registered in the area in recent days and an increase in the crater’s temperature.OVSICORI and RSN experts on Thursday will conduct inspections at Turrialba to take measurements and samples from the crater.In addition to gas and vapor, experts have not registered any irregular increase in the area’s seismicity, Martínez said.“At this time activity at Turrialba is lower than that currently registered at Irazú Volcano,” she said. Irazú, also in Cartago, is currently experiencing a series of minor tremors that have ocurred since December.On Oct. 29, 2014, Turrialba, located 67 km northeast of San José, registered its largest explosions and ash emission in the past 150 years.At the time, 180 hectares north of Cartago were affected on some level, but the Agriculture Ministry’s director of extension services, Felipe Arguedas, said there was no cause for concern about long-term consequences for human health.Dairy and crop farming are the primary productive activities in the northeastern region of Cartago, and farmers mostly grow vegetables, tubers and flowers. About 80 percent of potatoes consumed in Costa Rica are produced in this region.

Family Travel Continues to Grow

first_imgFamilies might be struggling to plan and pay for vacations but that isn’t stopping many of them from taking a trip.New research from GlobalData indicates that family travel is going through a growth spurt. The company’s Key Trends in Family Travel report showed that the market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.6 percent from 300 million trips in 2017 to 376 million in 2022.“As disposable income grows and emerging markets open their borders, we will see trends like multigenerational travel drive trips forward, particularly from hugely valuable source markets like China, and this represents a massive opportunity for the industry if it is able to tap into the specific needs of this complex cohort,” said Sara Grady, head of travel and tourism at GlobalData.The family travel market is growing increasingly diverse, and families have new and varying options when planning a vacation. Gone are the days that multigenerational groups are looking for just a beach vacation.“Family travel is moving beyond the traditional sun and beach getaway to offer families some much needed time to reconnect with each other and create lasting memories, increasingly in unique destinations, or on niche holidays, from cultural trips to activity-filled adventures,” Grady added. “It has never been so essential to offer travelers something beyond the norm to stand out from the crowd and that caters to their specific demands, irrespective of where they are from.”It’s not surprising to see this type of growth and potential from the family market as the travel industry continues to develop new products to lure families away from home. Many types of travel that were once considered solely for adults now have corresponding family counterparts such as tours and river cruises.For families looking to travel but overwhelmed by options, travel agents can provide a lifeline and wade through the information for them, helping them choose the right vacation for them.[Source: Travel Pulse]The post Family Travel Continues to Grow appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

Say it again Filipino is among the sexiest accents in the world

first_imgA meme inspired by an old cartoon had Filipinos making fun of their own accent, though a newly released survey say that it’s actually one of the sexiest accents in the world. Cartoon Network MANILA — Bring out the hamen chis sandwiches, it’s time to celebrate. A survey by a travel website has confirmed what Filipinos already knew — we have one of the world’s sexiest accents. Big 7 Travel, which claims to be the “go-to resource for over 1.5 million people,” polled their readers about what they think is the most attractive accent they have come across recently. “Filipino” received enough votes to land in the 21st spot, which is great news considering the slander (it’s really not, it just became a subject of a fun meme. “Prench pries,” anyone?) it got last year. It’s a pipe dream to think that we were ever going to come close to the likes of the French, the British, or the Aussies in this category but at least we’re ahead of the Japanese and the Russians. The top spot went to the Kiwis, with Big Travel 7 describing the New Zealand dialect as “outrageously charming.” In comparison, Filipino is listed only as “simply lovely.” Big 7 Travel did not reveal the exact number of the votes they got in this straw poll of theirs, nor a breakdown of it. It was back in November of last year when the “I love your accent, say it again” meme came to life, inspired by an episode of an old cartoon titled “Dexter’s Laboratory.” In it, the main character, Dexter, tried to cheat his French test by inventing a gadget that would have allowed him to learn the (7th sexiest, according to Big 7 travel) language by listening to a tape. It backfired as the tape skips over to the “omelette du fromage” phrase, and he woke up to find out that it’s the only thing he could say. This attracted all the girls in his school, however. Filipinos quickly hopped on the meme and made light fun of how we pronounce places like “perbyu” and “bwenja,” as well as words like “jabetic” and “jodorant.”last_img read more
