But I’m convinced my body has more to give, that I can still improve as a player and play at the highest level for a good few years yet.“I’ve slowly come to the point where I’m asking myself: What haven’t I achieved yet?

Robertson denies a nervous Liverpool

first_imgThe Reds footballer says the team is still thinking on lifting the English Premier League title at the end of the season.Liverpool has dropped seven points in their last five matches in the English Premier League.And yesterday they drew 1-1 against West Ham United, making many people question if they can last in first place to lift the title.The Reds are currently in first place of the table but Manchester City is dangerously close now.“I wouldn’t say nerves are showing, did anyone say that when Manchester City picked up no points at [Crystal] Palace and Leicester?” Liverpool player Andrew Robertson told Sky Sports.“I don’t think they did.”“A lot of people talk about pressure because we’ve not been in this position but it’s February,” he explained.“Everyone needs to relax and try to enjoy the run-in. I’m sure many other teams would want to be in the position that we’re in now.”“Nerves aren’t showing in the changing room. It’s been two poor results and poor performances – that happens during a long season,” he said.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.“We might look back on [the draw with West Ham] as a good point.”“We need to get back on track by winning games and playing better football,” Robertson continued.“We can’t worry about Manchester City. They’re in a good moment just now, we’re having a wee blip and just need to try and get over the line in a couple of games.”“Divock [Origi] had a chance in the 92nd minute [against West Ham] and if that goes in we’re talking very differently, but we keep going, we dust ourselves down,” the footballer said.“There is still a long way to go.”Andrew Robertson, the best in the business…Agree? ➡️ https://t.co/VscalqhBul pic.twitter.com/YY7khDuqnl— Premier League (@premierleague) February 4, 2019last_img read more

CHURCH SHOULD HELP WITH INTEGRITY IN PUBLIC LIFE

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 11 Dec 2014 – Opposition Leader Sharlene Robinson calling on the Church to be more assertive in the role of integrity in public life. Speaking on Anti-Corruption Day, Hon Sharlene Robinson said and I quote: Moral uprightness has not occupied the place of prominence it used to in time past and this must see a reversal. Our upbringing was based on solid Christian principles – the tenants of our faith taught us to honor God, to respect authority, to be honest in our dealings, to work honestly for honest pay, respect self and others and to be firm in our moral stance. We must return to this foundation. The Church, our most valued partner must play its role in nation building and must join front in center in ensuring that we uphold this tradition. Not all traditions should be abandoned and the determination to ensure that our children attend Sunday School, Bible Class or Children’s Ministry, Youth Group Ministry and Church cannot be ignored if we want integrity to become the bedrock of prosperity and posterity for these Islands.

Pennant I scored my Arsenal hattrick with vodka in my stomach

first_imgJermaine Pennant revealed how he scored his only Arsenal hat-trick while hungover from partying the previous nightThe 35-year-old winger started out his playing career with low-league English side Notts County before being signed by Arsenal for £2m in 1999.After a string of loan spells, along with the occasional appearance from the bench, Pennant grew accustomed to his unfavourable circumstances at North London during the 2002/03 season.But following Arsenal’s shock 3-2 home defeat to the struggling Leeds United at Highbury, Pennant was handed his first Premier League start the next game with the Gunners’ title hopes now over.And Pennant responded brilliantly with a first-half hat-trick as Arsenal secured a 6-1 win over Southampton – in what was the first game of their historic 49-game unbeaten run.Speaking on the event 15 years later, Pennant revealed a little secret that manager Arsene Wenger had no clue about.“I’d been out the night before and had a big night, because I really didn’t think I would be playing, never mind starting the game,” Pennant told FourFourTwo.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I’d never started a game for Arsenal and I didn’t think that’d change, especially as Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg and Ray Parlour were all in the squad. I was guaranteed to be on the bench.“I thought, ‘Sod it’, went to an FHM party and got home at around 6am. I couldn’t believe it when I saw my name in the starting line-up!“I was still so hungover when I was playing; I just did everything in my power not to embarrass myself.“I can’t believe I scored. It was just a huge relief – I thought, ‘OK, you can take me off now.“Please, Arsene!’ I felt so sick and I could feel the vodka still bouncing around in my stomach. You could smell it on my breath, too.“I did OK to score a hat-trick: it shows I had talent, though it helps when you’re playing with Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. That was the first game of Arsenal’s 49-game unbeaten run.”last_img read more

Dummett positive ahead of United clash

first_imgNewcastle United left-back Paul Dummett was gutted to concede a late goal at Watford in their 1-1 draw but says he’s optimistic of facing United in the next game.Newcastle United were well on their way to their third away victory in the Premier League this season after Rondon Salomon gave them the lead in the 29th minute.But eight minutes from time, substitute Abdoulaye Doucouré scored to salvage a point for Watford.The Magpies face Manchester United next on Wednesday, and Dummett fancies their chances against the Red Devils as they look to put the disappointment of the Watford game behind them.“After leading for so much of the game, working hard as a team and defending well, for them to score in the 82nd minute is really disappointing,” Dummett told nufc.co.uk.“The manager said before that every game is a cup final – we wanted three points, but every point we take is another point on the board.“They had a lot of the ball in the first half before we scored our goal. They had a lot of possession in the second half, as well, but they didn’t really cause us much of a threat until their man got free in the box and they scored.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“It’s disappointing not to hold out and pick up the three points, but we have to be positive and move on to the next game.“Last season, we beat Manchester United and went on a bit of a run after that, and hopefully we can achieve the same as that this season.“They’ve got a new manager and they’ve won a few games, so their confidence will be high coming to play against us.“But, I think Manchester United have always found it hard playing at St. James’ Park against us.“We’ll be doing our best to try and take points off them – hopefully three – and hopefully kick on the same as we did last season.”last_img read more

It’s fairly dense for the area but its close to downtown and public transit.At his State of the City Address, Mayor Kevin Faulconer said the “not in my backyard” folks have worsened our housing crisis, and he repeated that on Good Morning San Diego.Over the years political leaders have sided with the NIMBYs because they’re voters, but the housing crisis has gotten so severe it seems that bond needs to be broken.To qualify for one of 18 apartments set aside as affordable housing, one has to earn less that 50% of the area’s median income. That means a family of four earning 45,000 dollars a year can’t live there.18 units of affordable housing is a small number but it’s a message to neighborhoods to accept more density or it may be forced upon them.Not having affordable housing isn’t a money problem though. The housing commission has millions of dollars, the city contributes housing funds, as does the state, and the voters this past November approved four billion dollars for housing. The money is there but the votes have not been.

State local officials to introduce bill requiring school support for LGBTQ youth

first_img KUSI Newsroom Posted: February 13, 2019 February 13, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, State, local officials to introduce bill requiring school support for LGBTQ youthcenter_img Updated: 4:03 PM SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, was joined by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond Wednesday in announcing a bill they said would help create a more supportive environment in the state’s public schools for LGBTQ youth.According to Thurmond and Gloria, the bill would mandate that schools provide annual training sessions and information to teachers and staff on how to best address LGBTQ students in grades 7-12 who are dealing with bullying, harassment or discrimination. Schools would also be required to offer services like counseling and inclusive curriculum materials.“The bullying and name calling I experienced in school as a young gay kid is still a reality for today’s LGBTQ youth,” Gloria said. “No child should have to experience that. Students should feel safe, accepted, included, and supported in their school.”Thurmond and Equality California originally proposed a similar bill last year, which passed overwhelmingly in the Assembly and the Senate. But then- Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed the bill, opining that current laws regarding school resources for LGBTQ youth were sufficient and schools were welcome to go further than the minimum.LGBTQ rights activists balked at that idea at the time. Equality California Executive Director Rick Zbur said the state’s status quo “is failing California’s LGBTQ students and denying too many a shot at success.” A 2017 national survey by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network found that 82 percent of LGBTQ students heard homophobic or transphobic remark at their school and roughly 70 percent had been harassed or threatened for their sexual orientation.“Every child deserves a caring and supportive school environment, and we must continue to work towards closing disparities in health, mental health and academic outcomes for our LGBTQ students,” Thurmond said.Gloria and Thurmond were joined by Zbur and officials from the San Diego Unified School District at a news conference to unveil the bill, which the lawmaker’s office expects will head to committee in April.

Man gets 17 years for attack on psychiatrist

first_imgA Clark County judge called it “one of the strangest cases I’ve ever heard” before sentencing a Baltimore man Tuesday to 17 years and two months in prison for trying to kill a psychiatrist for life insurance money.Superior Court Judge Rich Melnick noted Ibn Aquil’s lengthy criminal past and the bizarre nature of last spring’s near-strangling before imposing a 206-month sentence, the high point of the sentencing range.“It’s an interesting case in terms of Mr. Aquil’s violent history,” he said. “And it’s an extremely unique case as far as attempted murders go.”In May, a jury convicted Aquil, 26, of second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault relating to an attack that occurred April 13, 2009, while the defendant was visiting his cousin in Hockinson. After the heavily intoxicated Aquil came home from a party that morning, he tried to strangle his cousin’s husband, who was asleep on the couch. The cousin’s husband, Barry Maletzky, owned an 8,000-square-foot house and had a $2.5 million life insurance policy. The prosecution argued Aquil wanted to kill Maletzky, 68, after overhearing Aquil’s cousin — Maletzky’s wife — talk about how much money she stood to gain. Aquil then joked about what he would do with $2.5 million.last_img read more

Ore train derailment fire visible from Clark County

first_imgA train derailed along the Columbia River near the city of Scappoose, Ore., today, triggering a fire that sent a plume of smoke into the air that was visible across the river in Clark County.The fire was extinguished by 4:30 p.m., but mop-up could keep the highway between Portland and St. Helens, Ore., closed for hours.A Vancouver Fire Department unit has been called to staff the Jantzen Beach fire station as the Portland Fire Bureau’s Engine 17 has been one of the many units called to respond.The derailment and fire occurred about 12:55 p.m. near the intersection of St. Helens Road, also known as Highway 30, and Cornelius Pass Road.Apparently a rail car loaded with lumber derailed into tanker cars filled with ethanol, setting off a large, hot fire. The Portland Police Bureau reported that two tankers out of 13 total were on fire. Because of the potential for explosion caused by catastrophic failure of uninvolved tankers that are being directly impinged by fire, fire crews have withdrawn and are evacuating the area with a half mile perimeter until it is safe to return to the area.As of 2:32 p.m., unmanned “ground turrets” and “aerial streams” were being used to cooling adjacent uninvolved tankers to prevent an explosion. Additional resources were being assembled to prevent the spread of the fire and additional harm to property and the environment.last_img read more

Reading fresh messages in old letters at fort

first_imgConnor Wier clutched a quill pen in his left hand as he carefully inked characters onto a tiny postcard. Returning the pen to a glass inkwell, he dipped and wrote, dipped and wrote, finally blotting his work with a tiny bit of sand.The 13-year-old Vancouver boy said he was no stranger to writing by hand. But in a generation where mobile text messages, e-mail and social media posts have supplanted the handwritten word, he and others paused to remember the role writing played in local history.Sunday’s program at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site was the first time the link between literacy and local history had been explored. In addition to hands-on opportunities, original letters and postcards from the fur-trading days through World War I were on display, and two short plays examined true stories about two documents with local connections.In the first days after European settlement, literacy was the dividing line between the Hudson’s Bay Co. elite and the common laborers, said Aaron Ochoa, a National Park Service ranger who helped present the program. Clerks and the managers above them could read and write. Most of their labor force could not.“Literacy was one of the things that separated the classes,” said Ochoa. With the ability to write came higher pay and a better standard of living at Fort Vancouver, then an outpost of the London-based Hudson’s Bay Co. fur trading empire.last_img read more

Vancouver couple sentenced for imprisoning beating adopted twins

first_img Vancouver parents Sandra and Jeffrey Weller were sentenced Wednesday to 20 and 21 years in prison, respectively, for imprisoning, starving and beating their adopted twins.The sentences were delivered before a standing-room-only crowd by Clark County Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson. Jeffrey Weller, 43, and Sandra Weller 50, were dressed in navy blue jumpsuits. The twins, a boy and girl now 17, sat in the front row.The Wellers showed no visible reaction to the sentence.“They got what they deserved,” the boy said after the sentencing. “Now it’s time to put it behind us and for me and my family to move on.”Jeffrey and Sandra Weller were convicted Feb. 8 of three counts of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, second-degree assault, and four counts of third-degree assault causing bodily harm. Jeffrey Weller was also found guilty of strangulation of the girl twin, another count of third-degree assault and two counts of fourth-degree assault.“I’ve seen tears, I’ve breathed the meaning of agony,” the boy twin wrote in a victim impact statement read aloud Wednesday by his attorney, Maggie Smith Evansen. “I’ve watched long nights of hurt and sorrow that can only come from a lonely hell. Yet still, we pushed on, waiting for a light at the end that took so many years to come.”That light appeared on Oct. 7, 2011, when Child Protective Services removed him, his twin sister, and four other siblings from the Weller house.In the trial, the twins and their adoptive siblings described that “lonely hell” in graphic detail. The twins, their adoptive brother, and another sibling all wrote victim impact statements to the judge, as did the couple’s ex-spouses. Sandra Weller reacts after sentencing by Judge Barbara Johnson on Wednesday, March after being convicted last month of starving and beating their adopted twins. Sandra Weller received a sentence of 20 years and her husband Jeffrey Weller received 21 years.last_img read more
