Beckham’s Inter budgets $1bn for new stadium

first_imgRelatedPosts Higuain joins Inter Miami after Juventus exit Matuidi joins David Beckham’s Inter Miami Cantona to receive UEFA President’s Award  David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer team Inter Miami has unveiled plans for a new $966 million (£751m) stadium.The club have revealed artist’s impressions of their potential home in Florida, complete with both palm trees and a bar on the roof.Posting on their official Instagram account, a number of pictures were made available to the public of the 26,000-seat arena, which the club hopes to be ready by 2022.As they are scheduled to make their league debut next year, they will play at Lockhart – where old the Miami Fusion team played between 1998-2001. Building work is ongoing in a bid for the temporary stadium to be ready for 2020.The Miami Herald reported that there are a number of construction issues which stem from arsenic contamination – at more than twice the legal limit – and hazardous debris in the soil.As a result, more than 200 workers are on site for 12 hours a day, seven days a week in a bid to beat the deadline ahead of next MLS season.“Organised chaos,” Inter Miami sporting director Paul McDonough told media of the new complex. “But we’ll be ready.”Beckham already has an affiliation with MLS, having played for LA Galaxy between 2007-2013. The former England star moved to America following the conclusion of a spell at Real Madrid.Beckham’s arrival in the States caused a stir with thousands of fans turning out to his unveiling.After joining for a fee believed to be £24.5m, the former Manchester United star made an impact on the major American league – with more than 5,000 fans turning up for his unveiling.He was one of the first major signings which inspired more marquees to make the move to the USA towards the end of their careers, including Steven Gerrard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thierry Henry and Andrea Pirlo.Tags: David Beckhamlast_img read more

Mauricio Pochettino expects Chelsea to be in Champions League contention

first_img The Blues are enduring a nightmare start to their title defence and will arrive at White Hart Lane on Sunday 10 points and 10 places behind their London rivals. Spurs, in fifth, are favourites to pick up three points and heap more misery on Jose Mourinho’s stuttering side. “When you work hard and you play well you need a positive result to be confident and to believe. The positive result was the victory against Chelsea. It helped the team to believe more. “We started to feel that the players believe, they are confident and comfortable in the way we play, the way we train, and I think that is the most important thing. “It was difficult for (Mourinho) because he was very upset and didn’t speak. I could understand – it has been like that some games for me. “Sometimes when you have lost you don’t want to speak to anybody. But we have a very good relationship and I am sure we will say hello before the game on Sunday. “This weekend we will be enemies because we both want to win the game. But I have respect for him. “He was very good with me when I was at Espanyol and he was at Real Madrid. He is not a close friend but I have a very good relationship with him.” Dele Alli is suspended for Spurs but Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele return after they were rested for Thursday’s 1-0 Europa League win over Qarabag in Baku. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino still expects Chelsea to challenge for the top four this season. But Pochettino is conscious Chelsea have had two more days to prepare for the clash against a Tottenham squad who only arrived back from a gruelling 5,000-mile round trip to Azerbaijan on Friday morning. “Chelsea have very good players and a great manager,” Pochettino said. “It’s always difficult to speak about another team because when you are outside that club you do not know what is going on and it is difficult to analyse. “Sometimes teams have bad results and that can change a very good team. But they have time to recover and come back still this season. “They also have extra days to prepare for our match. I am expecting a very tough game because they have very good players.” Tottenham won the corresponding fixture last season 5-3 on New Year’s Day – a result Pochettino admits gave his side the belief they were ready to mix it with the big boys. Mourinho did not speak to his opposite number after that match and, although Pochettino has a good relationship with the Chelsea chief, he will be hoping to get under his skin again on Sunday. “That match was very special,” the Argentinian said. “It was very important for us. It was an important time to believe in ourselves and for the young players. “For many players it was that belief that we can achieve important things. Now our mentality is that every time we play we need to show we have the quality to win every game. Press Associationlast_img read more

USC designated international safe community

first_imgUSC has become the first university in the world to be designated an “international safe community” by the World Health Organization Collaboration Centre on Community Safety Promotion, a designation indicating a strong network of collaboration that works toward the safety and wellness of a community.Usually, cities and municipalities receive the honor.“It indicates that USC is very serious about the safety and the well-being of students, faculty and staff,” said Charles E. Lane, associate senior vice president for Career and Protective Services. “We actually are very sincere, and we put serious efforts into making sure it happens at many, many different levels. Not just the obvious levels, but many that go on behind the scenes.”The university is the first institution of higher education to apply, said Donna Stein-Harris, director of the U.S. National Safety Council’s Safe Communities America efforts.Applicants first go through an application process and then an auditing period before they receive the designation.“We just are very pleased with how USC has approached this. They really will be the leaders in this movement as more universities understand the value of this kind of designation of honor,” said Stein-Harris, who helped audit the university.Ed Becker, director of USC’s Environmental Health & Safety department, said he first approached the university with the idea of seeking the designation when he realized USC’s community was very much like a city.“We’re the first university that recognized that the collaborative and the holistic approach [of USC] was similar to that of a municipality. We have police, and policies and procedures, transportation issues,” Becker said.Becker and Lane began the application process by creating the USC Safe Communities Task Force, which originally sought  to compile and list the groups and initiatives on campus that encouraged safety and well-being.Eventually, Becker said, the task force became a driving coalition to create and enact change toward creating a safer campus.“The process is fairly malleable in that it allows you to identify what your target groups are,” Becker said. “It’s challenging [to get] groups of people that may have not met in the past or that don’t work on a daily basis together behind a single purpose.”At first, the task force focused on traffic safety around campus areas with heavy bike traffic and few stoplights. The task force will meet to discuss risk factors and propose solutions as well as how to best address issues on campus this year.It is this collaborative approach to risks and safety, Stein-Harris said, that made USC stand out for the designation.“It’s recognition that there are risks out there, but the designation is based on the community — in this case, the campus’ approach to risk management. If they have a process for dealing with these kinds of incidents,” Stein-Harris said.Lane acknowledged, however, that a safe community designation does not necessarily mean a crime-free community.“We’re not saying that we’re the safest community. We have processes in place that try to get us to become the safest community,” Lane said. “Organizations that don’t have this in place aren’t in a position necessarily to react to problems that come up like we might be able to.”Though the topic of crime around the University Park Campus did come up during the audit, Lane said the efforts of the university to coordinate with the Los Angeles Police Department was one of the collaborative efforts the Safe Communities designation recognizes.“We just wanted to make sure we identified many of the issues,” Lane said. “It’s not like we park those on the side, because we continue to address those all the time.”last_img read more

Dodgers suffer day-after doldrums, lose to Orioles

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Caleb Ferguson took over in the seventh and also walked the first batter he faced. Then he committed an even bigger sin – he gave up a three-run home run. Jonathan Villar jumped on Ferguson’s first-pitch fastball and drove it deep into the left-field seats.The home run was the 6,106th of the season in MLB, breaking the previous single-season record. But it was Ferguson’s first contribution to the total since June 22. The left-hander had been making a bid for the postseason roster, allowing just one run in 11-2/3 innings over 10 appearances before Wednesday.Ferguson’s fellow lefty, Adam Kolarek, didn’t do much to buttress his postseason status either. Pedro Severino padded the MLB record and the Orioles’ lead with a two-run home run off Kolarek in the eighth inning.“I think if you look at who we have right now I’d put them all in that bucket. There’s still a lot of baseball, a lot of decisions to be made,” Roberts said of the jockeying for spots in the postseason bullpen. Before Wednesday’s game, he identified that as the top-of-the-agenda item down the stretch.“When you’re talking about the postseason and the game, the pressure – execution matters. A flare, a bad walk, that’s a big difference there. Executing pitches – those things matter when you get in the postseason.” They had just two baserunners – a first-inning single by David Freese and a third-inning walk by Austin Barnes – against Orioles left-hander John Means. Five times they swung at the first pitch from Means and made an out. Their turn at bat in the second inning lasted all of five pitches.“We haven’t seen Means, but he’s got good stuff. He’s actually fun to watch,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Fastball has that late life in the zone and he commanded it really well tonight. The changeup was really plus tonight and he was throwing the slider off the fastball. We really didn’t barrel him up all night long. He was very efficient and we couldn’t get anything going.”The Orioles put together back-to-back doubles by Trey Mancini and Dwight Smith Jr. to score a run off Stripling in the second inning for a 1-0 lead. But Pollock turned it around with a two-run home run in the sixth.“(Means had) a little unique fastball. There was more rise than we thought,” Pollock said. “His changeup kind of looked like it rose too which is unusual.“All I did was try to get on top of a ball that I could drive and do some damage.”It was the only sign of life from the Dodgers’ offense and it didn’t hold up for long.Joe Kelly followed Dustin May’s two scoreless innings in relief by committing the cardinal sin of relief pitching – he walked the first batter he faced. A wild pitch advanced the runner to second base and Smith drove him in with a two-out single, tying the score.Kelly has pitched infrequently over the past two weeks due to an unspecified leg issue and has allowed four runs on four hits in four innings over his past four appearances.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start PreviousBALTIMORE, MARYLAND – SEPTEMBER 11: A detailed view of a patch in remembrance of the September 11 attacks is seen on a Dodgers hat before the Los Angeles Dodgers play the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on September 11, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland.

(Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)ExpandBALTIMORE — Everyone knows it’s tough to go to work the day after a good party. That’s why they invented Sundays.When the Dodgers arrived at Oriole Park on Wednesday night, the clubhouse staff had done a remarkable job of clearing away all signs of Tuesday night’s beer-and-champagne eruption.It might take a little longer for the Dodgers to shake off the effects themselves.The offense managed just one hit in the first five innings Wednesday and the bullpen gave up six runs in the late innings as the Dodgers lost to the Baltimore Orioles 7-3. The loss allowed the Atlanta Braves to creep closer to the Dodgers (three games) in the race for the best record in the National League and the postseason home-field advantage perks that come with it.“I wouldn’t say anybody necessarily stayed up any later than we usually do or anything. We’re used to being up late,” said Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling, tasked with being the day-after starter. “Then you get plenty of time to sleep in. Certainly not an excuse by any means. I imagine it might not be a winning record for teams after they clinch. But definitely not an excuse that we’ll use.”The Dodgers are now 1-4 (with two shutout losses) when playing the day after their clinching victory during this run of seven consecutive division titles. Not included is last year, when they clinched with a win in the 163rd game of the regular season and 2014 when they had a day off before playing again (and winning).“I think we were focused. Maybe the energy was a little down,” A.J. Pollock said. “But I thought we were ready to play. The offense might have been a little flat.”For five innings against the Orioles, the Dodgers’ offense was actually soggier than the carpet in their locker room.
