first_img2 2 Reports have emerged suggesting that Chelsea club doctor Eva Carneiro will not be on the bench for the Blues’ next game, following public criticism from manager Jose Mourinho.The Portuguese was angry that Carneiro treated Eden Hazard for an injury during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Swansea, reducing his team to nine men, when the champions had already been reduced to 10 players following Thibaut Courtois’ red card.“I wasn’t happy with my medical staff,” Mourinho explained after the match. “Even if you are a medical doctor or secretary on the bench, you have to understand the game.“If you go to the pitch to assist a player, then you must be sure that a player has a serious problem. I was sure that Eden didn’t have a serious problem.”Carneiro responded on Facebook two days later, with this post. Eva Carneiro Now the Telegraph are reporting that her role is under threat at the club, starting with the game at Manchester City this weekend.Judging by social media, Carneiro has far more support than Mourinho over the matter…//storify.com/talksport/breaking-eva-carneiro-going-on-loan-to-vitesse-arn.js?border=false[View the story “‘Breaking: Eva Carneiro going on loan to Vitesse Arnhem!’” on Storify]last_img read more

first_imgFrom staff reports Two touchdown drives in the final three minutes lifted Leuzinger to a 16-13 nonleague win over visiting Schurr Friday night. Glynn Toliver’s 6-yard scoring pass to Semaj Harris with 44.8 seconds left capped the comeback for the Olympians. With 2:40 left, Leuzinger drove from its 25-yard line and scored on a 5-yard pass from Toliver to senior receiver Justin Kemp, making the score 13-10. “We just didn’t show up in the first three quarters,” offensive coordinator Derwin Henderson said. “It took the last four minutes for us to win which does show that our team has heart.” In the third quarter, Schurr took a 7-3 lead on a 20-yard touchdown run by Michael Rabon. The Olympians continued pushing their offense but failed to score despite being in the red zone six times. “We turned over the ball six times,” Henderson said. “We can’t let that happen if we expect to win games.” Schurr’s second touchdown came in the fourth quarter when Leuzinger fullback Uona Kaveinga fumbled at the 10-yard line and defensive back Jonathan Palomino picked up the ball and returned it for a 90-yard touchdown making, it 13-3. Toliver completed 18 of 32 passes for 335 yards, while the running game recorded 154 yards on 27 carries. – Christian Vasquez Peninsula wins thriller After three heartbreaking defeats by a combined 17 points, Peninsula bounced back to rally for a 25-21 nonleague victory over Bell Gardens on the road. “It feels good to go into Bay League with a win. Now we are hungry for more wins,” Peninsula quarterback Gideon Duran said. “If we execute, we will do well.” Peninsula converted on fourth down twice and Paul Stenson scored on a 10-yard run with 5:48 left to give the Panthers (2-3) a 25-21 lead after trailing by 21-10. Peninsula had pulled itself back into the game on a 66-yard scoring pass from Duran to Eric Stevens on second-and-28. Ryan Solomon rushed for 91 yards on 19 carries and had three receptions for 34 yards to lead Peninsula. Bell Gardens (3-2) drove the ball to the Peninsula 31. On fourth-and-11 with 1:38 remaining, Bell Gardens completed a pass but defensive back Kevin Hawke stopped the receiver 4 yards short of the first down. – Kent Johnson El Segundo gets its kicks Things started on the wrong foot for Bishop Montgomery when the Knights attempted an onside kickoff to open the game. The ball was caught in midair by El Segundo’s Matt Ash and returned 50 yards for a touchdown in the Eagles’ 34-6 win at Montgomery. El Segundo recovered Ashton Pittman’s fumble on the next kickoff and jumped out to a 14?0 lead in the nonleague game. Behind the passing of sophomore quarterback Mike Bundy (7- of-16, 113 yards and a touchdown) and Gage Morteson’s two rushing touchdowns, the Eagles (3-2) had a 28?0 lead at halftime. They added another on their first possession of the third quarter when Kody Davis broke off a 36-yard run to the 4 on his first carry of the night. On the next play he took it into the end zone. Bishop Montgomery was plagued by penalties, fumbles, and one big interception, which came when the Knights when they had a first down at the El Segundo 5-yard line when it was 14-0. Quarterback Brian Cabanas’ pass was deflected in the end zone and was intercepted by Jason Stone, ending the threat. The Knights finally got on the scoreboard with an 80-yard fourth-quarter drive capped by a 7-yard run by Quinton Howard. Howard was a workhorse for Bishop Montgomery (0-5), carrying 24 times for 86 yards. El Segundo’s defense was led by Morteson and linebacker Kyle Yatabe as the Eagles kept the Knights offense in check. – Tim Warneke St. Bernard rolls Ryan Simpson passed for two touchdowns and ran for another to lead St. Bernard to a 34-0 nonleague win over visiting Verbum Dei. Gregory finished with 77 yards on seven attempts and a touchdown for the Vikings (2-3). Adam Long came out after halftime and burned the Eagles (1-4) with 63 yards on 11 attempts with a touchdown. Ryan Richard came in and finished off the running attack getting 65 yards on 8 attempts. Overall the Vikings racked up 285 yards rushing and 330 total yards. Long was all over the field on defense. The Vikings had two big defensive stops as the Eagles got inside the red zone but were stopped on downs. The Eagles had 72 yards on penalties. – Mike Gallo Gardena falls on road Johnny Olive and Nick Gordon were a combination of Thunder and Lightning in host Huntington Beach’s 25-18 victory over visiting Gardena in a nonleague game. Olive, 235 pounds, powered for 131 yards on 22 carries with a touchdown. Gordon, 170 pounds, slashed and darted for 108 yards on 21 carries and a score as the Oilers (3-2) rushed for 319 yards as a team to control the clock. Bobby Duarte passed for 68 yards and his lone touchdown pass to Derek Romo with 5:47 left in the game put the game away. – From staff reports Run game lifts LawnRun game lifts Lawndale Trayveon Thomas scored on a 48-yard run only 20 seconds into the game to lift Lawndale to a 27-6 nonleague win over visiting Bolsa Grande. It took the Cardinals (4-1) only eight plays on their next possession to score again, this time on a 25-yard run by Kevin Rutledge on fourth-and-7. Bolsa Grande (2-3) started the second half by driving to the Lawndale 15-yard line, but the Cardinals held by forcing two incomplete passes. On the next drive Jabari Lewis got behind the Matadors secondary to haul in a 61-yard scoring pass from Kenny Lewis, the Cardinals’ only complete pass of the evening, for a 21-0 lead. TJ Vanderbilt picked off his second pass of the night in the fourth quarter, returning it 40 yards. Thomas then capped Lawndale’s scoring with a 15-yard touchdown. Bolsa Grande avoided a shutout by scoring on its final drive. Lawndale won its fourth straight game heading into Pioneer League play. Thomas gained 148 yards on 12 carries, with Carlton Callaway getting 96 on eight carries, and Rutledge gaining 75 on nine carries. – Bob Cody Miscues hurt Westchester Valencia quarterback Graham Wilbert managed to capitalize on three Westchester turnovers to lead the Vikings to a 35-6 win at Westchester. Wilbert went 8-for-31 for 79 yards and a touchdown and also caught a touchdown in the first quarter and ran for one in the third for Valencia. On the other side of the ball, Westchester (2-3) operated out of a two-quarterback system. Herman Evans and Chris Jacobs went a combined 17-for-28 for 110 yards, three interceptions and a fumble. Valencia (3-2) jumped out to a quick lead in the first quarter when wide receiver Zach Tartabull found Wilbert in the end zone for 41-yard flea-flicker touchdown. The Vikings would then capitalize on the sluggish Comets and add two more touchdowns before halftime. On their first drive of the second half, Jacobs ran the ball in from 27 yards out to bring the Comets within two touchdowns, but the Vikings defense took over from there, highlighted by two Mike Davis interceptions. – Derrick Deane Mary Star run down Running back Sunako Semi rushed for two touchdowns and quarterback Peter Ciaramitaro passed for 120 yards, but Mary Star dropped a 32-20 nonleague decision to visiting Santa Clara. Cierre Wood rushed for 200 yards and scored on runs of 60, 70 and 20 yards in the fourth quarter for Santa Clara (3-1-1). The game was scoreless at halftime. Mary Star running back Brian Bornemann had to step in at quarterback when Ciaramitaro was injured in the fourth quarter and connected with Troy Fiamengo for a 50-yard touchdown pass. – Vince Barner160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LITHONIA, Ga. – Ten thousand mourners – including four U.S. presidents, numerous members of Congress and many gray-haired veterans of the civil rights movement – said goodbye to Coretta Scott King on Tuesday, with President Bush saluting her as “a woman who worked to make our nation whole.” The immense crowd filled the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church – a modern, arena-style megachurch in an Atlanta suburb that was once a stronghold of the Ku Klux Klan but today has one of the most affluent African-American populations in the country. More than three dozen speakers at the funeral took turns remembering the widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who worked to realize her husband’s dream of equality for nearly 40 years after his assassination. She died Jan. 30 at age 78 after battling ovarian cancer and the effects of a stroke. The president ordered flags flown at half-staff across the country. “Coretta Scott King not only secured her husband’s legacy, she built her own,” Bush told the crowd. “Having loved a leader, she became a leader, and when she spoke, Americans listened closely.” Former President Clinton urged mourners to follow in her footsteps, honor her husband’s sacrifice and help the couple’s children fulfill their parents’ legacy. Former President Bush said the “world is a kinder and gentler place because of Coretta Scott King.” President Carter praised the Kings for their ability to “wage a fierce struggle for freedom and justice and to do it peacefully.” The funeral at times turned political, with some speakers decrying the war in Iraq, the Bush administration’s eavesdropping program, and the sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina in mostly black New Orleans. The Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr., drew a roaring standing ovation when he said: “For war, billions more, but no more for the poor” – a takeoff on a line from a Stevie Wonder song. The comment drew head shakes from Bush and his father as they sat behind the pulpit. The lavish service stood in sharp contrast to the 1968 funeral for King’s husband. President Lyndon B. Johnson did not attend those services, which were held in the much smaller and older Ebenezer Church in Atlanta, where King had preached. Coretta Scott King’s body was to be placed in a crypt near her husband’s tomb at the King Center, which she built to promote his memory. The crypt is inscribed with a passage from the book of Corinthians: “And now abide Faith, Hope, Love, These Three; but the greatest of these is Love.” Over the past several days, more than 160,000 mourners waited in long lines to pay their respects and file past King’s open casket during viewings at churches and the Georgia Capitol, where King became the first woman and the first black person to lie in honor. “She made many great sacrifices,” said Sean Washington, 38, who drove from Tampa, Fla., with his wife and children from a disability center to attend the funeral. “To be in her presence once more is something that I would definitely cherish, no matter what.” Stevie Wonder and Michael Bolton sang, giving soaring, gospel-infused performances. At least 14 U.S. senators attended, along with members of the House. Among the civil rights veterans at the funeral were Dorothy Height, longtime chairwoman of the National Council of Negro Women; Rep. John Lewis, former head of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee who led the “Bloody Sunday” march in Selma, Ala.; and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, founder of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition. The main eulogy was given by the youngest of the Kings’ four children, Bernice, a minister at the megachurch. She was 5 when her father was assassinated, and was famously photographed lying in her mother’s lap during her father’s funeral. Poet Maya Angelou called Coretta Scott King “a study in serenity” and challenged the audience to carry on the King message of nonviolence. “We owe something from this minute on, so that this gathering is not just another footnote on the pages of history,” said Angelou, a former U.S. poet laureate who sang some of her comments in a traditional style of the Southern black church. Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin – who spoke immediately after the president – injected politics into her remarks, describing how Coretta Scott King spoke out against “the senselessness of war” with a voice that was heard “from the tintop roofs of Soweto to the bomb shelters of Baghdad.” Carter brought up the government response to Katrina, saying, “We only have to recall the color of the faces of those in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi” to know that inequality exists. He also noted that the Kings once were “victims of secret government wiretapping” – echoing Bush’s domestic spying program. Outside the church, the lines to get into the funeral and to attend the final viewing of King’s body started forming before 3 a.m. “It’s good to finally see her at peace,” said Robert Jackson, a 34-year-old financial consultant from Atlanta.last_img read more

Many people, though, may be oblivious to the fact that the South African singing icon is an honorary colonel in the South African Air Force (SAAF), and works closely with the young people of the Air Force Gymnasium, guiding them to make the right career and life decisions.“I was approached by the air force,” says Chaka Chaka of her recruitment in 2005, “and since then I’ve learned so much, it’s been so good. I really love it.”Her appointment falls under the SAAF’s outreach initiative Siyandiza (we’re flying), which encourages high school children, especially those from disadvantaged communities, to sign up for a career in the air force.Siyandiza holds annual camps for schoolchildren where, for a week, they’re not only exposed to the workings of the SAAF, but are also educated about life skills, self-discipline and etiquette, HIV/Aids awareness and substance abuse, as well as military matters.The initiative gives young people a taste of what lies in store for them, should they decide to pursue an air force career.Even that brief period is enough to change lives – during the two most recent camps held in July in the Eastern Cape and North West provinces, a pupil at one of the passing-out parades stated that the week had helped him to believe in himself and understand the folly of making wrong choices as a result of peer pressure.“We regularly take kids to play on the flying simulators at Montecasino [a casino complex in Johannesburg’s northern suburbs],” says Chaka Chaka, “and although they think it’s a game, they’re getting an idea of what it would be like to fly a real plane.”She’s assigned to the Air Force Gymnasium, based since 2009 at the Hoedspruit base near the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. This is the first stop for all new recruits. Here they’re assessed and shunted into the fields for which they show the greatest aptitude, and they all receive their basic training.“It’s not just about flying,” Chaka Chaka says, “but there is a place for engineers, navigators, air traffic controllers, medics, even musicians. Actually, it’s really about empowering yourself by making the most of the education that you get.”She regularly gets the call-up to interact with the recruits and do inspections at the base, and says she’s always impressed by the neatness and cleanliness she sees.“Being in the defence force teaches discipline and tolerance for others,” she says, adding that she personally believes that a stint of compulsory service would go a long way towards instilling those values in South Africa’s young people.“We need our kids to go to the air force. For those who want to serve their country but don’t know how, this is a good place to start.”Instilling good valuesBut it’s working with the Gymnasium’s young women that brings her the most gratification.“They’re far away from their home, you know,” she says, “so I talk with them about the challenges that they’ll be facing. I tell them that education comes before anything else, and that you should get to where you want to be on your own merit, and not through any other means.”This philosophy is very close to her heart – that women should use their innate talents to progress, and stand up to issues such as victimisation and harassment – and it’s one that she’s lived by.“I have no cause to regret anything I’ve done in my life,” she says. “I’ve always walked tall and I’ve done what I’ve done in my own way. I’ve never wanted to be at anyone’s mercy.”Chaka Chaka’s involvement doesn’t stop with the recruits – she challenges the brass too, advising them to freely impart their knowledge and skills and always have the best interests of their young charges at heart.She shares this advice wherever she goes – Chaka Chaka has adopted the school where she did her matric, and whenever she visits she reiterates the message, telling the children to believe in themselves and their abilities, and the teachers to treat their pupils like their own children.“I’m a mother myself, so I shoot from the hip when it comes to these issues – I tackle them head on.”In Women’s Month 2012, her message to all South African women is to encourage each other and to do away with self-doubt.“Women are the strength of the world,” says Chaka Chaka. “I gather my strength from the women who came before me.”A born leaderBorn in Dobsonville, Yvonne Chaka Chaka has enjoyed a 27-year-long career in entertainment and is one of the African continent’s most enduring and popular stars, loved as much for her humanity as for her talent.Besides her music, she heads her own charitable organisation, the Princess of Africa Foundation, which supplements her malaria awareness work for Unicef and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership.An experienced businesswoman, Chaka Chaka also runs her own promotions company and record label. She is the CEO of Gestetner Tshwane and has been a brand ambassador for First National Bank and DStv.She holds qualifications from the University of South Africa – an advanced diploma in adult education and a certificate in local government, management and administration.In January 2012 Chaka Chaka was named the first African woman to receive the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award, given to artists who use their talent and time to improve the world around them. She joined the likes of renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour, both previous Crystal recipients.In April 2012 she received an honorary doctorate in music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, at its humanities graduation ceremony.“The choice as women is ours, to rid ourselves of self-limiting beliefs and choose positive beliefs that enable us to move forward and take our rightful place in society to realise our dreams,” she said in her acceptance address.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency earlier this month entered into a consent decree agreeing to a court-enforced timeline for establishing the Renewable Volume Obligation numbers for 2014 and 2015 for the Renewable Fuel Standard, the delayed timeline — especially for 2014 — were a reflection of the problems the EPA set up for itself by numerous delays.“Congress created the Renewable Fuel Standard to help reduce our dependence on foreign oil and to provide cleaner domestic fuel choices for consumers,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling. “And the EPA has finally provided additional clarity about their timeline for announcing the 2014 through 2016 renewable fuel requirements. We have expressed our concerns about the continued delays to the EPA, and we will be taking them at their word that they will adhere to this new deadline. NCGA will continue to work with the EPA to ensure the numbers are consistent with the statute passed by Congress and put the RFS back on track.”Under the consent decree and other commitments, the EPA will follow the following timeline:By June 1, the agency will propose volume requirements for 2015 and 2016 and will re-propose volume requirements for 2014, by June 1, that reflect the volumes of renewable fuel that were actually used in 2014.By November 30, EPA will finalize volume requirements for 2014, 2015 and 2016, and resolve a pending waiver petition for 2014.With regard to the RFS and biomass-based diesel volume requirement for 2017, EPA will propose and finalize a volume on the same schedule.What makes the RVO such a major concern for corn growers? In November 2013, the EPA proposed to reduce the baseline 2014 renewable volume obligation for corn ethanol in the RFS from 14.4 billion gallons to 13 billion gallons — a 10% cut. They proposed this after a record corn crop in 2013, which was then followed by a second record crop in 2014, with the price of corn falling to below the cost of production in many areas.If the RVO reduction took place as proposed by the EPA, estimates were for the price of corn to fall by as much as an additional $1.10. With corn stocks high and prices low well into 2015’s planting season, NCGA and its growers will continue to track progress on these deadlines and hold EPA accountable.When the EPA announced its lower volume for 2014, NCGA activated its grassroots membership in a number of ways, and saw the largest response ever seen for a call to action. When the time came for our growers to speak up, they did so — loudly and forcefully. NCGA’s growers and allies sent the EPA a clear signal when this proposal was first issued, with nearly 200,000 people responding to the public comment opportunity in opposition to the reduction. Nearly 10,000 farmers called the White House directly.last_img read more

first_imgShooting a live event? Cover all your bases, and maximize your workflow with these practical approaches to film or video production.Shooting events can be stressful, especially when you’re not entirely sure how much coverage you need to capture.  How many wide shots of a wedding do you need? How many close-ups of the tablecloth are necessary? There’s a lot going on — and only one of you to capture it all.If you’re gearing up for a shoot, and this is stressing you out, have no fear: I’ve created a go-to guide that can help you capture all the coverage you need to make a solid edit.Keep in mind that amount of action per event will really determine how much you shoot. If it’s a pretty active event, you might want to repeat the shot list every 15 to 40 minutes. If it’s a basic event and things are slow, I recommend filming per location or every few hours. That being said, use your judgment and try to gauge the fluctuation of how things are flowing.Every shoot is different. The big thing you want to capture is the feeling of the event. Ask yourself How does it feel? What is energy? What looks interesting and unique?Wide/ Establishing ShotsThese are great for entering and exiting a scene. I recommend getting at least 1-5 solid wides.Wide/MediumTry to get a good 3-4 wide/medium shots in the can. An example of this type of coverage would be people interacting or participating in an activity.Close Ups/MomentsIn my eyes, expressions and reactions are important elements to capture at an event. My rule of thumb is usually 15-25 reactions per scene, setup, or location.Close Up/Macro Detail ShotsDETAILS! Details are essential for making a great event or recap video. You want to film the small details that the organizers fought so hard to bring together. I usually gather 15 per scene, setup, or location.For each of these categories, be sure to capture the right moment before moving on to the next shot. There’s no point in gathering all of this coverage if none of it works in the edit.The main thing is to follow your gut and use this guide as an outline. All shoots are different, and so is the coverage you’ll get. This method has helped me immensely, and now I just rely on it as a rule of thumb when filming any sort of event or recap video.Looking for more filmmaking tutorials?

It’s credit to everyone who has helped me.”The 28-year-old is the first defender to win the award since the inaugural edition in 2010-11.He moved to Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018 for a then-world record fee for a defender of £75 million ($91.4 million), immediately helping them reach that season’s Champions League final where they lost to Real Madrid.But Van Dijk was a key figure as Liverpool won their first major trophy since 2012 last term, while also setting a club-record points tally in finishing second by a point behind Manchester City in the Premier League.”I wasn’t 18 and went straight to the top. I had to work every step of the way,” added Van Dijk, who was also part of the Netherlands side who lost the inaugural Nations League final to Ronaldo’s Portugal.Messi and Ronaldo had claimed five of the previous eight awards between them, with Andres Iniesta (2012), Franck Ribery (2013) and Luka Modric (2018) completing the winners’ list.”It’s not easy but of course we have a good relationship,” said Ronaldo of Messi.”We have not yet had dinner but it is nice. We push each other and it’s good to be part of the history of football.”Ronaldo’s first season in Italy after joining Juventus from Real Madrid brought him a Serie A winners’ medal, but the Turin giants suffered a shock Champions League quarter-final loss to Ajax.”It was a special year,” said the 34-year-old.
