first_imgEngland cricket coach Andy Flower wants his Ashes victors to refocus for the fifth Test in Sydney and finish the tour on a winning note, and not to believe that his team can’t accomplish more.Speaking a day after England completed an innings and 157-run win in the fourth Test to ensure it holds the Ashes, Flower said on Thursday that “it’s far too early to feel satisfied.”England lead the series 2-1, marking the first time since the 1986-87 season that they have retained the Ashes in Australia. The fifth Test begins Monday.Flower said the celebrations in the Melbourne Cricket Ground changerooms on Wednesday were memorable and noted some players were “conspicuous by their absence” for breakfast on Thursday morning at the team hotel.”But we also will realize there’s a lot of cricket ahead on this tour and there’s a lot of cricket left to be played in this fifth test,” Flower said. “We came out here to win the series and we’ll be doing everything we can to do that.”He said the Ashes was one step in a long-term ambition of winning the limited-overs World Cup beginning in February and becoming the world’s No. 1 Test team.”There are a lot of things out there for us to aim for,” Flower said.The team had the day off on Thursday after wrapping up the Melbourne Test in four days.”They can enjoy each other’s success and each other’s company for a little period of time in the sanctuary of the dressing room and the families joined us for a short time,” Flower said.advertisement”I know the guys enjoyed having their loved ones around them, too, to share it with.

first_imgA spirit-crushing defeat in a major final can often signal the end for a manager, yet Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp believes their Europa League final heartache could prove to be a bright new beginning for his club. (Sevilla stun Liverpool to win Europa League title)A self-confessed fan of “heavy metal football”, Klopp would have loved nothing more than to get his hands on a weighty piece of silverware in Basel, but his hopes of glory were dashed by a 3-1 loss to the competition’s masters Sevilla.As Sevilla captain Coke held aloft the trophy at St Jakob-Park, Liverpool’s German coach had already disappeared down the tunnel, not waiting to applaud opponents who had dashed his hopes of ending his first season at Anfield with a trophy.”We will use this experience – that is what we have to do,” German Klopp told reporters.”The players are still young. Some day everyone will say Basel was a decisive moment for Liverpool FC.”Klopp arrived at Anfield in October to take charge of a team low on confidence who had developed a reputation for lacking the steel to get over the line on big occasions.While the latter accusation could still be levelled at Klopp’s squad, confidence abounds that the German is steering the Liverpool ship to new horizons and a second cup final defeat in three months will not have swayed fans who have been captivated by the German.After going three seasons under Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers without making a major final, to reach two in such a short space of time is perhaps a glaring signal that Klopp means business. Liverpool also lost to Manchester City in this season’s League Cup final.advertisementHe has been far from a panacea to cure all Liverpool’s ills, however, and their erratic league form attests to the fact that there is still so much work ahead for the Liverpool boss.Yet there is no mistaking a change in atmosphere at Anfield and a sense that people around the club has changed, in Klopp’s words, from doubters to believers.It was perhaps a shame, therefore, that belief was the one thing Liverpool seemed to lack when Sevilla clawed their way back into the match on Wednesday.Daniel Sturridge’s opener was wiped out 17 seconds into the second half by Kevin Gameiro’s close-range effort and Coke’s two goals finished the job.”It was obviously the first (Sevilla) goal (that changed the game). In this moment we lost faith in our style of play,” Klopp said.”We changed from passing simply and quick, to slow and complicated.”While next season will not see Liverpool return to the European stage after their eighth-place Premier League finish, Klopp believes this could give his side an edge on the domestic front.”We will have no international tournament next year, we will have time to train. We will use it and come back stronger,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgLYON, France (AP) — Three days too few. Forty-five minutes too many.Ireland bowed out of the European Championship on Sunday with a 2-1 loss after relinquishing a halftime lead against a better rested France.France had a full week to recover from the group phase and prepare for the round-of-16 match. Ireland, meanwhile, had to beat Italy on Wednesday to qualify for the knockout stages.For Ireland coach Martin O’Neill, that gave France a big advantage in the second half, when his team wilted on the Stade de Lyon pitch.France’s Antoine Griezmann, left, celebrates with his teammate Olivier Giroud after scoring his side’s first goal, during the Euro 2016 round of 16 soccer match between France and Ireland, at the Grand Stade in Decines-­Charpieu, near Lyon, France, Sunday, June 26, 2016. (AP Photo/Laurent Cipriani)“We definitely got the short straw in that aspect,” O’Neill said. “It is an incredible amount of time that one side can have over another team.”Ireland was on course to spring a major upset after Robbie Brady scored a penalty in the second minute, following a foul by Paul Pogba on Shane Long in the box.O’Neill had stuck with the same starting 11 that defeated Italy, and they turned in another gutsy, physical performance to frustrate France’s vaunted attack in the first half.“We had not only a goal, but had them under severe pressure,” O’Neill said. “At halftime, we were not only in the game, we were feeling we could win the match.”But when the second half started, the team’s plans quickly unraveled.Ireland quickly began to fade, especially after France forward Antoine Griezmann turned the match around by scoring in the 58th and 61st minutes.“It’s a natural disappointment, considering the position we got ourselves into, and you look at the goals we conceded,” O’Neill said. “Another six or seven minutes without conceding and France might have got panicky. The players couldn’t have put anything more into the game, not an ounce left.”France’s Dimitri Payet, right, and Patrice Evra celebrate at the end of the Euro 2016 round of 16 soccer match between France and Ireland, at the Grand Stade in Decines-­Charpieu, near Lyon, France, Sunday, June 26, 2016. France won 2-1. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus)Any hopes of Ireland equalizing were quashed five minutes after France’s second goal, when Shane Duffy couldn’t match Griezmann’s pace and earned a straight red card for fouling him when he had only the goalkeeper to beat.Ireland was only spared a bigger defeat because Griezmann and substitute Andre-Pierre Gignac later wasted a series of chances.“When Ireland took the lead it made us a bit more uncomfortable in the first half,” France coach Didier Deschamps acknowledged. “They showed a lot of enthusiasm, but we had to dig deep, get through the situation and get in front.”After the final whistle, Ireland’s players hauled themselves up off the turf where they had collapsed and started a slow walk to the sole patch of Irish green at the otherwise blue-colored stands. The players applauded their fans, who responded with cheers and songs for several minutes.“The second half was always going to be tough for us and we just couldn’t keep the door closed for long enough,” Ireland defender Seamus Coleman said.“I just felt like it was there for us today. Our fans were unbelievable and we’d love to go a bit further for them, but we hope we made people proud.” TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgMexico Mexico player ratings: Vela, Ayala the standouts as El Tri top Bosnia Thomas Floyd @thomasfloyd10 12:34 2/1/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Carlos Vela Mexico Bosnia & Herzegovina Soobum Im Mexico Mexico v Bosnia-Herzegovina Bosnia-Herzegovina Friendlies Opinion The Los Angeles FC forward and Tigres defender stood above the crowd as El Tri earned a 1-0 victory in San Antonio Ever so unpredictable, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio played to type in Wednesday’s friendly against Bosnia & Herzegovina. Carlos Vela and Elias Hernandez in midfield? Orbelin Pineda and Giovani dos Santos flanking the front line? It was an unconventional spin on El Tri’s conventional 4-3-3 formation.Of that out-of-position quartet, only one player managed to roll with the punches and exert his influence all the same. Whether he’s being asked to create from a central midfield role or run at fullbacks on the flank, Vela showed he’s an attacking presence to be reckoned with as Mexico opened 2018 with a 1-0 victory in San Antonio.The only thing missing from Vela’s performance was a spot on the scoreboard. That distinction belonged to Hugo Ayala, who strengthened his case for a World Cup roster spot this summer with a steady outing in central defense and the 65th-minute header that secured the win for El Tri.

Not his best night.D JESUS GALLARDO, 5: Wasn’t much of a factor on the ball, though he held his own on the defensive side.M ELIAS HERNANDEZ, 4: Struggled to find much of a rhythm while playing an unfamiliar role, floating toward the right side in Osorio’s midfield trio. Was pulled after 45 ineffective minutes.M JESUS MOLINA, 6: Offered an active presence in possession, covering plenty of ground while dropping deep to distribute.M CARLOS VELA, 7: Looked at home in a deeper position than we’re used to seeing him in before shifting to the front line after halftime.

first_imgParents of Nova Scotia high school students will be better equipped to help their children make informed career and educational decisions, thanks to a series of free workshops offered through the Department of Education. Parents as Career Coaches workshops will provide parents with tools they need to effectively guide their children as they move from high school to post-secondary education or training. “Research shows parents are the single greatest influence on their children’s educational and career decision-making,” said Education Minister Karen Casey. “To support parents in this important role, we are working to provide them with the resources and support they need to help their children make solid post-secondary and career decisions. This will help to ensure our students graduate from high school with a plan.” The workshops will be delivered in three evening sessions, where parents will learn about the changing trends in today’s labour market, how to have productive career discussions with their teenager and tools to help identify interests and skills that might develop into a career choice. “I knew Katie was outgoing and extroverted, but I never realized that could translate into career skills,” said Peggy Maughan, a Parents as Career Coaches participant. “The program helped me recognize Katie’s strengths and taught me how to support and guide her in her decisions about her future.” The Parents as Career Coaches program was offered to 16 Options and Opportunities schools throughout the province last year. Those who participated found the workshops to be useful and most felt confident in their ability to implement the ideas presented in the program. “The last three years of high school are a critical time for students making future career and educational decisions,” said Linda Fewell, Principal of Sackville High School. “Times have changed and the workforce in Nova Scotia is different now. The steps parents took to obtain employment are quite different from the steps their children will have to take. “Parents and educators must work as a team to ensure students are aware of all of the options available to them. This program helps accomplish that.” The Department of Education will launch a provincewide advertising campaign to promote Parents as Career Coaches. Interested parents should to contact their child’s high school or Student Advisory Council to sign up for a workshop. Parents can also get involved by visiting the Parents as Career Coaches website at www.parentsascareercoaches.ca .last_img read more

first_imgThere are defining moments in our province’s history that have shaped our identity and our future. The Halifax Explosion is one of them. Tragedy struck on Dec. 6, 1917, a day of suffering, horror and loss. Today, we remember and honour those who were lost that day, and in the days that followed. But out of that devastation emerged a story of courage, resilience, and compassion. We think about the heroes — those who sacrificed themselves to save others, and about the massive relief effort that saw both professionals and ordinary citizens from across our province and beyond come to the aid of the injured and homeless. Haligonians and Nova Scotians showed how the power of the human spirit can overcome terrible adversity. As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion, let us honour the memory of the victims, and be inspired by the values and resolve that helped create the Halifax and Nova Scotia we are fortunate to call home today. -30-last_img read more

“I wish to express my deepest sympathies to the families of the victims,” said Hans Haekkerup, the head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). He added that the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., were not only aimed at the United States “but also at the fundamental values upon which the US and the UN are built: peace, democracy and human rights.”Meanwhile speakers in the Kosovo Transitional Council, representing political parties, civil society and ethnic and religious organizations, voiced their shock at the attacks and expressed support for the victims. Many Council members called today a day of mourning for all of Kosovo, and all endorsed the holding of a silent rally of solidarity in Pristina, which took place in front of the city’s National Theatre. read more

According to the UN human rights office, OHCHR, some of the refugees have threatened suicide if they are forced to return, and two elderly men in Cox’s Bazar have already attempted suicide.Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, underlined that with “complete lack of accountability” and ongoing violations in Myanmar, repatriations effectively means “throwing back” the refugees into the same cycle of human rights violations that they “have been suffering for decades.”There are plans for the repatriation of more than 2,200 Rohingya refugees to Myanmar. However, refugees have stated repeatedly that they do not wish to return under current conditions, OHCHR added. In addition, several families apparently listed for return are headed by women or children, placing them at heightened risk.Ms. Bachelet also stressed that forcibly expelling or returning refugees is a “clear violation of the core legal principle of non-refoulment,” which forbids repatriation where there are threats of persecution or serious risks to the life, physical integrity or liberty.Any returns must take place in line with international standards of voluntariness, safety and dignity, with full transparency, and only when the conditions are right, added Ms. Bachelet.► SEE ALSO: Rohingya returns only ‘at their freely expressed wish’ – UN refugee chiefThe UN human rights chief also called on the Government of Myanmar to show its seriousness in creating the conditions for return by addressing the root causes of the crisis in Rakhine state.Since late August 2017, widespread and systematic violence against Myanmar’s mainly-Muslim minority Rohingya, has forced hundreds of thousands to flee their homes in Rakhine state and seek refuge across the country’s border, in Bangladesh. Prior to that, well over 200,000 Rohingya refugees were sheltering in Bangladesh due to earlier displacements.“The history of the Rohingya in Myanmar is one filled with repeated episodes of violence, flight and return,” said Ms. Bachelet, calling on the international community “to speak with one voice to stop this cycle from repeating itself yet again.”According to estimates, there are some 925,000 Rohingya refugees sheltering in Bangladesh, most of them in the district of Cox’s Bazar, once an idyllic coastal town, transformed into the largest refugee settlement in the world, in just a matter of months. read more

Ohio State sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins (2) runs the ball in the first quarter of the game against Maryland on Nov. 17. Ohio State won 52-51. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorNo. 10 Ohio State got to Michigan week with a single loss, but in ugly fashion, defeating Maryland 52-51 in overtime in College Park. Here are three takeaways from Saturday’s win against the Terrapins.Dobbins becomes featured backSophomore running back J.K. Dobbins knew he was going to be the featured back against Maryland. Redshirt junior Mike Weber, according to head coach Urban Meyer, suffered a quad bruise during the week, which got worse heading into the game on Saturday.Going in, Dobbins and Weber were trading series, sharing the carries at the top of the depth chart. Even though it has worked in the past, Dobbins said he is more comfortable with being “the guy” in the backfield, saying after the game he is an energetic player that gets in a groove each drive he receives.Ohio State saw that from Dobbins against the Terrapins, recording 203 yards on the ground on 37 carries, the most, he said, he had had since high school, scoring on a 1-yard rush at the end of the second quarter.Dobbins was not by himself in the running game, with redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins rushing for 59 yards, scoring three touchdowns on the ground.However, with the consistency of Dobbins, Haskins had the opportunity to run an offense that many expected from Ohio State at the beginning of the year: utilizing the option, but with a player who can run for short yardage, but prefers to pass.With Dobbins and Haskins, it looked like the Ohio State offense Meyer wanted to run the whole time.But with a running game that Ohio State has had all year that runs with the 1A and 1B backs at the top of the depth chart, it is not likely, assuming Weber’s return, that this kind of consistency from one back, that amount of a workload, will continue against Michigan.Haskins continues to trust the tight endsHaskins’ main targets in the passing game have not changed much this season. In Ohio State’s 1-point victory over Maryland, redshirt senior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon recorded six catches for 102 yards while redshirt senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin brought in a team-leading 118 yards and a touchdown on four catches.But in the short passing game, Haskins looked to his tight end, sophomore Luke Farrell, for consistent catches. He brought in four catches, tied for second-most on the team, for 44 yards, bringing in one for 19 yards.Farrell’s performance against Maryland tied for his most receptions in a single game this season, bringing in four catches against Purdue on Oct. 20. The 44 yards through the air was also a season high.Redshirt junior tight end Rashod Berry was also a major factor against the Terrapins, recording an 11-yard catch on a 4th-and-1 in overtime, leading to a 5-yard touchdown rush by Haskins.For the Ohio State quarterback, tight ends were not the deciding factor in Saturday’s win. But the position, both Farrell and Berry, proved to be Haskins’ security blanket, something that could be effective moving forward.Ohio State defense needs work The Ohio State defense had a day to forget against the Terrapins on Saturday, allowing the most points (52) and the second-most yards (535) it had all season.The offensive success started quickly for Maryland. Reminiscent of the Oregon State game, Maryland redshirt freshman running back Anthony McFarland recorded two touchdown runs, one for 81 yards and the other for 75 in the first quarter, recording 298 yards on 21 carries overall. Now, heading into the Michigan game, the Ohio State defense, allowing 24.6 points per game, is giving up close to 400 yards per game, with opponents averaging 5.9 yards per play and scoring 33 touchdowns against the Buckeyes this season. Defending the ground game, Ohio State is No. 6 in the Big Ten, allowing 161.3 yards per game and 4.5 yards per carry. In the passing game, opponents are completing 52.3 percent of passes against the Buckeyes, but averaging 237.4 passing yards per game, No. 10 in the conference. Next week, Ohio State will face a Michigan team that has the No. 4 rushing attack in the Big Ten, averaging 219.2 yards per game, and a passing attack that completes 65.1 percent of passes for 210.5 yards per game. The Buckeyes will have to try and stop the balanced attack of Michigan. But it cannot do it the same way Ohio State tried to stop Maryland on Saturday. read more

first_imgOracle was convinced to issue an update for its Java plugin two weeks early this month in order to squash a few critical bugs that resulted in a torrent of bad press. Everyone from security bloggers to the federal government had warned the general public against using Java after it was discovered that the exploit was being targeted in the wild. Apple blocked Java via OS X’s Xprotect, and Mozilla and Google both flipped the switch on their browsers to blacklist the plug-in.According to security researcher Brian Krebs, the most critical fix in the most recent Java update addresses an issue in Oracle’s new trust mechanism. The initial change made it so that Java requested authorization from end users whenever unsigned, untrusted code was encountered. While it was an excellent step in the right direction in terms of improving the overall security of Java, it was also very easy to circumvent.In total, the Java update takes care of 50 security flaws. Unsurprisingly, Oracle is recommending that all users update as soon as possible due to the severe risk posed by surfing with a vulnerable version.If you’ve still got Java installed on your system, keep your eyes peeled for an update notification. If you’d rather not wait for Oracle’s updater to answer the call, just head over to the Java download page and grab the latest version. Mac users will be relieved to know that the new release matches Xprotect’s minimum version expectation — and that means no more terminal hacking is required just so you can play Minecraft.One more thing: just make sure the update you’re installing is a legitimate one, not some craftily-designed malware.More reading: How to disable Java on everythinglast_img read more

first_imgEast County Fire and Rescue’s failed levy lid lift in November has prompted commissioners to terminate an interlocal agreement with the city of Camas for shared service of Camas-Washougal Fire Department Chief Nick Swinhart.“We’re looking at ways to save money,” said Mike Taggart, vice chair of East County’s board of commissioners.Taggart signed a letter that Camas city councilors will discuss at their workshop at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Camas City Hall, 616 N.E. Fourth Ave. The letter says that East County’s board voted in December to terminate the agreement, which was signed in October 2016. The agreement will end Feb. 1, according to the letter.The agreement saw East County pay Camas-Washougal roughly $37,000 a year and Swinhart spend about 37.5 hours a month at the district. Swinhart said it worked out so he usually spent one day a week at East County and attended one board meeting a month. He helped with overall administration oversight, budget oversight and reporting to the commissioners.Swinhart said he assumed the conversation would come up once East County’s levy lid lift failed in November with 53.38 percent of voters coming out against the tax increase. The two agencies have discussed a merger throughout the last few years, but talks between the two have died down.“With those two things coming to a head, there probably wasn’t a lot of sense for continuing our agreement for much longer,” Swinhart said.last_img read more
