Tommy Elphick insists Villa must improve defensively

first_imgAston Villa defender Tommy Elphick insists the team must improve defensively in order to get their promotion challenge back on track.Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Hull City saw Villa fall into the bottom half of the Sky Bet Championship, now seven points behind the top six.Goals from James Chester and Tammy Abraham earned a point for the hosts after Hull took advantage of some poor defending to race to a 2-0 lead courtesy of goals from Jarrod Bowen and Evandro.Dean Smith’s men now possess one of the worst defensive records in the division, having conceded 16 in their last six home games.However, Elphick believes a top-six finish is still possible and admits they must stop giving away easy goals.He said, according to Express&Star:Brad Smith is loving his time at MLS Manuel R. Medina – August 27, 2019 Smith has been loaned from AFC Bournemouth to Seattle Sounders for a whole season, and the Australian footballer is enjoying his time there.“They do all seem to be similar – we get caught on the counter or get caught after a mistake.”“We just need to wise up a little bit. The way we are trying to play, we are always going to be susceptible to being countered and conceding goals.”“But I’ve had success playing this way at Bournemouth. We had the second-best defense in the league that season. That is where we want to be.”He continued: “When you see the intensity that we pressed within the second half on Saturday, it just makes it so much easier for us to get onto the front foot.”“When that pressing is broken down, we need to become a little bit savvier and more streetwise and fall into our shape a little bit quicker and make it harder for teams to score.”“We are giving stupid goals away that isn’t good enough for us to be up in the top six at the moment”last_img read more

Shell Gets Final Approval To Drill Into OilBearing Rock in the Chukchi

first_imgThe Fennica and its yellow capping stack in Alaska’s Dutch Harbor on July 18. (KUCB/John Ryan photo)The Obama administration approved Arctic oil drilling Monday.Download AudioThe Interior Department gave final approval to Shell Oil to drill into oil-bearing rocks at the company’s “Burger J” drilling site. The company has until late September to complete this summer’s exploratory drilling. Megan Baldino is a Shell spokesperson:“Our plan is to make the most of the time that we have in theater, and whatever we don’t accomplish this summer, we can potentially… do in 2016.”Shell’s Polar Pioneer rig began drilling on July 30.  But Shell couldn’t get permission to drill into oil-bearing layers until its missing icebreaker and the well-capping stack on its stern returned from the Lower 48. Greg Julian is a spokesperson for the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement“Now that the capping stack is on hand, Shell is allowed to drill into potential oil-bearing zones, [at the Burger J site.]” BSEE spokesman Greg Julian said.Federal inspectors have been living on board both of Shell’s Arctic drill rigs for the past two weeks of shallow drilling.“Nothing noteworthy to report,” Julian said. “Things are going smoothly.”That icebreaker, the Fennica, hit a rock on its way out of Dutch Harbor on July 3. It then sailed to Oregon for repairs. Greenpeace protesters swinging beneath a Portland bridge further delayed the Fennica. Environmentalists reacted with dismay to the Obama administration’s announcement. [Today’s/Monday’s] Approval of Arctic oil drilling comes a few days after the president announced that his upcoming visit to Alaska would focus on his push to fight climate change.Annie Leonard is the head of Greenpeace USA.“Obama’s relation with climate is a little schizophrenic… doesn’t make sense to recognize what a serious problem climate change is and then….drilling in the Arctic. You’re either on one side or the other.”The President will visit Alaska at the end of this month. The White House video promoting Obama’s trip as part of his legacy of leadership on protecting the climate did not mention his Administration’s support for Arctic drilling.last_img read more

Patient stable after miraculous heart transplant in city

first_imgKolkata: Dilchand Singh, a resident of Jharkhand who had undergone heart transplantation at Fortis Hospital in Anandapur off EM Bypass on Monday, has been stated to be stable.A Press statement issued by the private hospital authorities on Tuesday said that the patient has been recovering well and has been taken off assisted ventilation. The family members of the patient who visited the hospital on Tuesday expressed their happiness over the treatment. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”All medical parameters are satisfactory. The heart transplant recipient is stable and continues to progress well,” the Press statement issued by the medical superintendent of the hospital said. The patient will be kept under observation for the next few days.The heart was harvested at a Bangalore hospital, before it was airlifted to Kolkata early on Monday morning. One Varun DK (21) had met with a fatal road accident in Bangalore and was declared brain dead after being admitted to a hospital on May 19. The heart was extracted from Varun. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedAccording to the city doctors, the post-operative care is most important in such operations. The condition of the patient should also be monitored closely. A senior cardiothoracic surgeon at a medical college hospital in the city said that post-operative treatment is very important in case of any such major operation. In some cases, patients develop infections later. He said that awareness must be spread among the people about the organ transplantation in the state. “Why should organs be brought from other cities? The pledges of organ donation must be increased in the state, for which a comprehensive awareness programme should be conducted. Bengal government has done significant improvement in this field so far,” a city doctor said.It may be mentioned here that Singh had been suffering from Dilated Cardiomyopathy. He was on the waiting list since January 2017. A live heart was flown to the city from Bangalore and later taken to the hospital, following which it was successfully transplanted into the patient’s body. A green corridor was set up between the Calcutta airport and the hospital for a smoothly transportation of the organ.last_img read more

VIDEO 15yearold Canelo Alvarez TKOd a grown man in his first pro

first_img Here’s Alvarez putting the hurt on an adult in his pro debut on October 29, 2005 at 15. The older guy isn’t exactly Macho Camacho, but it’s still an impressive TKO.Here’s a clip. We know, it isn’t exactly HD. Don’t @ us. Advertisement Mayweather/McGregor was the most hyped boxing match of the year, but Canelo Alvarez versus “GGG” Gennady Golovkin, tomorrow, is going to be ten times the fight.For those casual fans that are unfamiliar, Alvarez – 51-1-1 (34 KO) – is widely considered the best pound-for-pound boxer since Floyd Mayweather retired from fighting actual boxers. His only career loss came at the hands of Mayweather in a 12-round decision.Alvarez, came up through the ranks in Mexico, and he fought his first professional fight as a 15-year old (!) against a grown man, because his trainers couldn’t find opponents his own age.NBA players make the jump to the pros at 18 or 19, but in a gladiator sport like boxing, a 15-year old kid taking on all comers is way more badass.last_img read more

New FCC Program Lets You Text 911 in an Emergency

first_img Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. 2 min read May 15, 2014 Mobile has influenced how we work and play, and now it will affect how we ask for help in an emergency. This week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began rolling out their Text-to-911 program supported by major mobile carriers Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T.While the capability will be helpful in situations when making a call isn’t safe or for those who are unable to hear or speak, the program won’t be immediately available everywhere, as call centers across the country plan for the logistics and additional training needed to handle an influx of text messages. The FCC’s current target date to require all text providers to support the Text-to-911 program is December 31, 2014.Related: Our Collective Mobile Security Blind SpotThe counties where it is offered now are using only one mobile provider. If the service isn’t available and someone does send a text, the FCC requires the wireless companies to send a bounce-back message to let them know.So how does it work? You would type the emergency in the text and have to be sure to include your location. (Unlike a landline which would allow emergency services to pinpoint your address, the feature isn’t yet supported on the mobile platform for 911 calls.)  And for now, the program only supports texts, not images or videos.Related: Watch Out: Here’s Where Your Smartphone Is Most Likely to Get Stolen (Infographic) center_img Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Listen Nowlast_img read more

Is Marissa Mayer Running Out of Time

first_img 4 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Just over three years ago, Marissa Mayer embarked on the turnaround of Yahoo with a kitchen-sink strategy of trying anything and everything. It voraciously acquired 40 or so middling startups. It tried its hand at expensive, high-profile content from Katie Couric, David Pogue, and Community.Now Mayer is preaching the gospel of focus and discipline—even going so far as to write down the $42 million her company spent on Community and two other original shows.Mayer’s Yahoo turnaround plan is looking less promising by the day. There are question marks around the tax bill for Yahoo’s $24 billion spin-off of its Alibaba shares. (The IRS denied Yahoo’s request for prior approval of its plan.) Making matters worse, the Alibaba spin-off doesn’t look nearly as lucrative as it did before the Chinese markets got crushed in August. Meanwhile Yahoo’s executive turnover has reached concerning levels. And the cost of revenue from its new advertising products continues to increase.Tuesday’s earnings report, with an 8.4% drop in revenue from a year ago, reflected those increased costs. In the third quarter, Yahoo brought in just $1 billion in revenue, down from $1.09 billion a year earlier. The company’s total revenue actually increased, but its cost of revenue, or “TAC,” increased more, from $43 million in the year-ago quarter to $223 million this quarter. The company reported a net earnings per share of $0.08, compared with $6.70 last year (the latter boosted by Alibaba proceeds) and its guidance shows TAC will rise even higher next quarter. The results were “not indicative of the performance we want,” Mayer said in Tuesday’s earnings call. “We have encountered challenges and not achieved the results we had hoped for.” This is not the rosy portrait that Mayer has painted in past quarters. Criticism is mounting, and Mayer must acknowledge her gadflies. She addressed the issue of turnover by saying that Yahoo’s executive team was the strongest it had been in her tenure. Mayer also acknowledged investors’ short-term mindset. Yahoo’s long-term strategy will not be defined by a single quarter, she said. The company’s new advertising platform, Gemini, has “suppressed revenue,” in the short term, Mayer said, because it is still learning how to serve the most relevant ads to users.Investors traded Yahoo stock slightly down in after-hours trading, to $32.40.Mayer said the spin-off of Yahoo’s stake in Alibaba, which may happen as late as the first quarter of next year, will allow the company to focus more closely on its core operations and simplify its structure. “We will be a more focused company in 2016,” she said.Yahoo’s increased focus next year will require deepening the engagement it gets from its users. “With more than a one billion users, we have most people who are online coming to us throughout the month,” Mayer said. “We need to work to improve our relevance to end users and how many times they come to us.” Engagement, the chief executive said, will be key to long-term growth.Saving Yahoo was always a going to be a stretch, given the company had cycled through numerous CEOs and strategies by the time Mayer arrived. Once an Internet behemoth, Yahoo stagnated under years of uncertainty and lacking direction.Mayer is attempting the first ever turnaround of an Internet media company. Just two companies of Yahoo’s size and scale have ever managed the feat, and both are e-commerce businesses: eBay and Priceline. It’s unclear why none of the major fallen Internet media companies—MySpace, Bebo—have managed to do the same. But I doubt it’s because they lacked focus.
