a month agoAndrew Robertson: Liverpool will remain humble

first_imgAndrew Robertson: Liverpool will remain humbleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAndrew Robertson says Liverpool will not make the mistake of underestimating opponents this season.The Reds blew their Premier League lead to Manchester City last season with some poor results against smaller clubs.Asked if Liverpool could underestimate an opponent, he said: “No, we prepare for every game as if it’s our last because that’s the only game that’s in front of us.”Every game is like a cup final and that’s the game in front of us. Last season we were very good at never looking too far ahead at the games that you class as big games. Newcastle away last season, for example, we took care of that after Barcelona away.”We had Barcelona at home three days after but we took care of the games that we had to take care of because the next game is the most important.”That’s the attitude that we’ve taken and we can’t look at a busy September period because Newcastle had to be taken care of today. Luckily we’ve done that and now we focus on Napoli.”We don’t look too far ahead but we just focus on the next game because that’s how we get the best out of ourselves.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

When Zidane won the Champions League things were not going so well in the Liga and in the end there are always criticisms. And more in Madrid. “It is clear that this team has won a lot and has been reinforced. Now he’s having a bad time with injuries, but he’s a coach with three Champions Leagues and great players. He will be in the fight.”On Mourinho, he added: “He is waiting. This is new to him.”Asked if Mourinho could return, Karanka added: “We are in September and there is a world ahead. Zidane has won three European Cups and some credit must be given.” last_img read more

first_imgWatford keeper Foster admits ‘shock, embarrassment’ after Man City thrashingby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford goalkeeper Ben Foster admits Manchester City are the best team he’s faced after conceding eight goals yesterday.Speaking after the match, Foster conceded his side were far from their best, but said at times he could only stand and admire the way City were playing during the thrashing.”It’s probably a bit of shock, embarrassment,” said the goalkeeper when asked to describe his emotions.”I think we let ourselves down today and the fans a bit. The fans were giving it everything, all they’ve got, unfortunately we on the pitch didn’t give it all we have got.”As a keeper coming to City and Liverpool, if you let five in in 20 minutes you fear the worst, you think cricket scores. They are without doubt the best team I have ever played against. We were poor, didn’t lay a glove on them but at times it was breathtaking watching them.”You come away to City and I’m not joking, you come here and think if you keep it to two or three – they are so good. Them and Liverpool are a different level.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Investors reacquaint themselves with turmoil in the markets

first_imgInvestors may be feeling a bit unsettled after a few days of market turmoil upset months of tranquility.A slide that started early last week led to a sharp dive in markets Friday and Monday. The fall on Monday alone represented the steepest drop in 6 1/2 years. That can rattle a few nerves. Things seemed to have stabilized Tuesday, easing fears of a global sell off.Market professionals say investors should stay calm — although they can’t guarantee markets will do the same.So what should you do? Here are a few answers to common questions:WHAT JUST HAPPENED?No one thing triggered this.The markets took a marked turn downward Friday after the monthly U.S. jobs report showed that wages surged in January, representing the sharpest year-over-year gain since the recession. That stoked concerns about higher inflation because as companies raise pay, they often raise prices and that cycle can speed inflation.The Federal Reserve is already expected to raise short-term interest rates this year with the economy growing. But inflation worries raise concerns that the Fed will increase rates at a quicker pace. Higher borrowing rates can be a challenge for corporations over time as they want to borrow money to grow and it drives investors to bonds rather than stocks.The selling continued Monday, in what most experts are saying is just an overdue correction. Some believe automated trading also played a role as the systems that buy and sell stocks may have been triggered. Trading was choppy Tuesday but the U.S. market mostly recovered after an early plunge.HOW BAD WAS IT?Not that bad, really.That big two-day drop only erases a few months of gains. Plus, market pros have noted that declines of 10 per cent or more are common during bull markets. And this has been the second-longest bull market on record.There hasn’t been a correction in two years, and by many measures stocks are awfully expensive.“Market corrections are normal, no matter how nerve-wracking they are at the time,” said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate.And after an extended period of market calm, it serves as a good reminder that stocks are volatile.WHAT SHOULD I DO?The answer can be one of the toughest parts of investing: Stay calm.“Just hang in there, maintain a long-term perspective and resist the urge for any knee-jerk reactions,” McBride said.Stocks go up and down — that is the nature of the market.People should be making their investments as part of a long-term plan, one that won’t be entirely hijacked by a few days of losses. And there may even be more volatility ahead — there’s no way to be sure.Check in with your financial planner or investment firm if you are feeling uneasy. It may be a good time to look at your portfolio and make sure it has a mix of assets that you are comfortable with. After the market’s big run-up, you may have more of your portfolio weighted toward stocks than you realize.Vanguard said that it counsels customers that changes to their portfolio should be made because their life circumstances, or their time horizon, have changed — not because of inflammatory headlines or “noise.”Some people may want to take advantage of the dip to buy. Others may want to revisit their strategy. But those who want to get out of the stock market altogether should take pause, said Ken Hevert, senior vice-president for retirement at Fidelity Investments.It’s easy to get out during down times but hard to get back in for a recovery. And drops of 5 per cent to 10 per cent are typically followed by a pretty rapid recovery period, he said, adding that current conditions are favourable for growth.last_img read more

Morsis family not to attend trial session

first_imgCAIRO  – The family of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi said on Sunday the deposed leader is unfazed by what it described as “trumped up” charges against him, and asserted they would not attend the first session of his trial, due on Monday.In a statement sent exclusively to Anadolu Agency, the family cast doubts on the authenticity of statements that the Egyptian daily Al-Watan claims that Morsi had said during his meetings with visiting politicians and rights groups from his unknown detention place since July 3.The paper said it obtained leaked recordings of Morsi’s meetings at his detention place, which is still being kept secret. The family said releasing the statements one day before the trial’s first session aims to influence the public.The statement was signed by Morsi’s elder son, Osama, who identified himself as the official spokesman of the “abducted legitimate Egyptian president”.“The president is steadfast despite months of violations against his rights as a president and a citizen and despite all the smear campaigns launched against him by a people of no value,” Morsi’s family wrote in the statement.It said the ousted president would not be brought down to his knees by “trumped up” charges or “kangaroo courts.”Morsi is due to appear for the first time since his July 3 ouster in court to face charges of inciting the killing of demonstrators outside the presidential palace in Cairo in December when he was a president.At least 14 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders and ex-presidential aides are due to appear with him in court as well.The families of seven of the defendants in the case already said they would not attend the trial because they don’t recognize the court’s legitimacy.– RecordingsAccording to al-Watan newspaper, Morsi said during a meeting with Catherine Ashton, the high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy, that he was illegally detained and this should not happen to a head of state.He called on the European Union and the United States to intervene for his reinstatement, promising to redress the mistakes he had committed during his one year of rule, according to the newspaper, which said it has video and audio recordings of Morsi’s statements.It said Morsi expressed objection to holding a public referendum to decide whether he should stay in office or hold early presidential elections, saying the Egyptian constitution did not contain articles that make this possible.Al-Watan said it would post the video and audio recordings of Morsi’s statements to prove the authenticity of what it marketed as a “scoop.”It said Morsi insisted during his meeting with another political delegation to describe his ouster as a “military coup”, saying that he is still the president according to the constitution.Morsi, however, said he was being treated well at his detention place.He said he rejects his trial, saying the president should have different grilling procedures according to the constitution, the newspaper said.“If I go to the court I will defend myself before the judges,” Morsi was quoted by the newspaper in its report as saying. “I am not involved in the killing of demonstrators. I will say this to the judges.”By Hussein al-Qabanilast_img read more

Buckeyes part ways with head coach John Markell

Ohio State will not renew the contract of John Markell, the coach of the men’s hockey team. Athletic Director, Gene Smith, made the announcement Tuesday that the university will part ways with Markell after 15 seasons.The decision was announced to the team Tuesday morning, to the surprise of some of the players.“We weren’t exactly sure what was going on. You throw that idea around but we were a little bit surprised,” Sergio Somma said. “We’ve got to turn over a new leaf and start fresh with a new coach next year.”The search is to begin immediately for OSU’s next coach. Chris Schneider, associate athletics director for sports administration, said the search for the next coach will be nationwide.“We’ll post the position by the end of the week,” Schneider said. “We’ll leave it open through the end of the Frozen Four. At that point, we will evaluate the pool of candidates that we have and begin the interview committee process. We hope to have somebody in place by early May.”Schneider added that the decision to not renew Markell’s contract came from a lack of consistent success throughout his tenure at Ohio State.“What we’re looking for in our men’s ice hockey program is a coach that is consistently successful, consistently competing for collegiate championships and ultimately performing in the NCAA tournament,” Schneider said. “Coach Markell has done very good things with our student-athletes. And he’s done some good things with our program in the past. [The decision] goes back to being consistently successful.”Somma indicated that Schneider’s expectations for the program are not unrealistic.“The facilities and the opportunities here at this school are bar none, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t compete every year. I still think we have the personnel and the talent to have a great team next year.”Markell finishes his career with a record of 280-267-56 and led the program to its first Frozen Four appearance in 1998.“I appreciate the opportunity I had to coach at Ohio State,” Markell said. “I’m proud of the young men I had a chance to coach and watch grow up both as hockey players and in life. I’m proud of the accomplishments we had as a team over the years. I wish nothing but the best for the Buckeye hockey program and the people around it.” read more

Football Ohio State releases Week 6 depth chart before Maryland game

Ohio State junior kicker Sean Nuernberger (96) kicks a field goal in the second quarter in the game against Rutgers on Sep. 30. Ohio State won 56-0. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State released its Week 6 depth chart Tuesday prior to its matchup against Maryland at 4 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium.As expected, the major changes to the depth chart all came from the defensive line. Head coach Urban Meyer had announced Monday redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones will not play Saturday after he suffered a “freak” injury last week during practice when he cut his leg on a locker.In his place, redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Jashon Cornell is the first name that appears, but no player is bolded as a starter. Defensive end Jalyn Holmes started at defensive tackle against Rutgers alongside redshirt senior defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle.At the strong safety position, sophomore Jordan Fuller was listed as the starter alongside senior Damon Webb, the starter at free safety. Fuller had previously been listed as a co-starter with senior Erick Smith, but Meyer said Monday that Smith would not play and that he had “to handle his business.” Redshirt freshman Wayne Davis was listed as the backup at safety behind Fuller.The other change made was redshirt junior kicker Sean Nuernberger is now listed as the starting kickoff specialist. The position had previously been held by freshman Blake Haubeil. Meyer said Monday while kickoff coverage is “getting back to the expectation level we have,” he was still unsatisfied with how Haubeil was performing and said the team was “not good at that position.”The depth chart can be found here. read more

Wrestling No 2 Ohio State prepares for two meets in three days

Ohio State’s Luke Pletcher wrestles Paul Glynn in the dual-meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe No. 2 Ohio State wrestling team will take on Michigan State at 7 p.m. Friday at Jenison Field House in East Lansing, Michigan, and Purdue at 1 p.m. Sunday at Graham High School in St. Paris, Ohio, the hometown of Buckeye wrestlers and brothers Bo and Micah Jordan.The Spartans (5-6, 1-4 Big Ten) lost their last meet to No. 21 Wisconsin 28-7, and they lack a single ranked wrestler, giving Ohio State (10-0, 5-0 Big Ten) a massive advantage. However, it is rare for a team to win each match, even when there is an edge in the rankings.“Michigan State, obviously they’re not your Iowa or Penn State match, but it’s still a good opportunity to go out there and work on some new skills in a live match,” Ohio State redshirt sophomore Kollin Moore said. “Try some of the stuff that you’ve been working in practice see if you can do it in an actual match.”Moore, who ranks No. 1 at 197 pounds, will wrestle in both Ohio State’s meets. Senior and No. 1 heavyweight Kyle Snyder will neither rest nor compete for Ohio State this weekend. Instead, he will represent the United States at the Yarygin Grand Prix in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Snyder will try to become the first American to win the Yarygin in back-to-back years. Ohio State is coming off of a decisive victory against No. 3 Iowa 22-12 on Sunday, a result that still lingers in the Buckeyes’ minds.“I would argue that that was one of the top-three dual meets of all-time,” Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said. “I mean that was a great atmosphere. Our guys really saw the love that people have for wrestling in this region and for the university.”The Schottenstein Center filled up with 15,117 people for the Iowa meet, and the home fans watched the Buckeyes win six of the 10 bouts. Moore beat No. 5 Cash Wilcke, and Ohio State sophomore No. 2 Luke Pletcher beat Paul Glynn at 133 pounds. Both Moore and Pletcher remained undefeated on the season with the victories, but Pletcher saw his performance from a different perspective.“Last year we had the big crowd and I lost,” Pletcher said. “So it was still cool then, but it’s a lot better when you win, obviously. I had a lot of family members come down. My club coach brought some wrestlers down, so it was pretty cool to see them there, and go out in front of 15,000 fans was pretty awesome.” Purdue (5-5, 0-4 Big Ten) has struggled recently, losing its past four competitions, most recently losing 21-12 to No. 14 Illinois. The Boilermakers wrestle North Dakota State on Friday, which will allow them to try to regain some confidence before they take on the Buckeyes.Sunday’s meet will give the Jordan brothers the chance to return to their high school in St. Paris, Ohio, to compete for the first time since the two graduated.“That’s one of the meccas in the country, let alone the state of Ohio,” Ryan said. “They are producing college student-athletes left and right.”Ohio State shifts its focus toward Michigan State and Purdue, though its Feb. 3 meet at Penn State is nearing. read more

Rep Noble backs bill for better student loan reporting

first_img30Nov Rep. Noble backs bill for better student loan reporting Categories: News,Noble News State Rep. Jeff Noble voted this week to require state colleges to provide annual updates to students on their federal student loan status to better manage their debt.“Our college graduates should not have to spend the first 20 years of their careers paying for their education,” said Noble, of Plymouth. “Giving students an annual update on their loans will go a long way toward making smart financial decisions during college and success after getting their degree.”The legislation calls for students to receive:Estimates of monthly repayment amounts, based on current projections.Access to student loan counseling services available through each college.Information on employment opportunities available in a student’s chosen course of study.Estimated national student debt has reached $1.4 trillion with average loans at Michigan universities increasing by approximately $10,000 over the past 10 years.“It’s very concerning to me that 63 percent of Michigan’s college graduates have student debt,” Noble said. “Armed with the information about their debts from the colleges, students will be able to better plan for their futures.”#####last_img read more
