Report: Wolves 3 West Ham 0

first_imgRaul Jimenez scored twice after Romain Saiss’ opener as Wolves earned a fully deserved 3-0 win over a lacklustre West Ham at Molineux.Lukasz Fabianski had done his best to keep the Hammers in the contest, but there was little he could do to stop Saiss scoring from Joao Moutinho’s 66th-minute set-piece.Jimenez’s clever finish made sure of the points with 10 minutes remaining and a deft effort for his second completed the most routine of wins for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, who go seventh in the Premier League.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? It marks the first ever league double for Wolves over the Hammers, who have lost back-to-back top-flight games for the first time since October and failed to rebound from a humiliating 4-2 loss to AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup on Saturday.FT | #WOL 3-0 #WHU A stunning second-half display from Wolves sees @Nuno ‘s men run out 3-0 winners over @WestHamUtd . Goals from Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez (2). #WOLWHU pic.twitter.com/meZWNagAAR — Wolves (@Wolves) January 29, 2019 Wolves had a strong penalty claim waved away in the 21st minute.Matt Doherty burst into the area and was felled in a tangle of legs by Arthur Masuaku with referee David Coote awarding only a corner.Leander Dendoncker tamely struck Doherty’s centre straight at Fabianski, while Jonny was unlucky his stooping diving header from Jimenez’s sublime cross trickled past the right post.The hosts had a goal chalked off when Dendoncker headed in the rebound after the crossbar was rattled by Jimenez, who was adjudged offside.Wolves’ pressure did not relent in the second half and Diogo Jota and Saiss were both smartly denied by Fabianski.Fabianski made another fine stop from Jonny’s stinging effort, but the goalkeeper was finally beaten when Saiss headed in Moutinho’s delivery from the resulting corner.There was no coming back when Jimenez beat his marker to flick Moutinho’s left-wing free-kick past Fabianski and the Portugal striker lifted a third over the goalkeeper from Jota’s pass to a complete a rapid Wolves break. What does it mean? Wolves deliver another Hammer blow West Ham, whose misery was compounded by a seeming right foot injury to Marko Arnautovic, were desperately disappointing in their fourth-round loss at Wimbledon, and a third straight defeat in all competitions sees them stuck in a bit of a rut. But Wolves were slick, full of ideas and unlucky not to have more goals.Doherty delights Molineux before Jimenez brace There were several performances worthy of praise from a Wolves perspective with Doherty, who was denied what looked a good shout for a penalty and saw a shot saved by Fabianski, putting a particularly industrious performance down the right. Jimenez led the line with aplomb and scored two excellent goals late on that added the gloss Wolves’ performance deserved.Miserable evening for Masuaku It was a tough outing for Masuaku, who constantly found himself in two-on-one situations with Wolves’ midfield three providing support for Doherty. Struggling full-backs proved a trend for West Ham with Jota’s guile and movement providing a tough evening for veteran Pablo Zabaleta.Key Opta Facts: – Wolves have completed a league double over West Ham for the very first time in their history – in the 30th different campaign in which the sides have faced.- Raul Jimenez has been involved in 13 Premier League goals for Wolves this season (eight goals, five assists).

Films with onscreen smoking should carry warnings to protect children – UN

“With ever tighter restrictions on tobacco advertising, film remains one of the last channels exposing millions of adolescents to smoking imagery without restrictions,” said Douglas Bettcher, the UN World Health Organization (WHO) Director for the Prevention of Non-communicable Diseases. “Smoking in films can be a strong form of promotion for tobacco products. The 180 Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) are obliged by international law to ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.”According to the new WHO Smoke-free movies: from evidence to action, the third edition since its launch in 2009, studies in the United States have shown that on-screen smoking accounts for 37 per cent of all new adolescent smokers. In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that in the United States alone, exposure to on-screen smoking would recruit more than six million new, young smokers from among American children in 2014, two million of whom would ultimately die from tobacco-induced diseases.In 2014, smoking was found in 44 per cent of all Hollywood films, and 36 per cent of those rated for young people. Almost two thirds (59 per cent) of top-grossing films featured tobacco imagery between 2002 and 2014. That same year, the US Surgeon General reported that adult ratings of future films with smoking would reduce smoking rates among young Americans by nearly one fifth and avert one million tobacco-related deaths among today’s children and adolescents.Many films produced outside of the United States also contain smoking scenes. Surveys have shown that tobacco imagery was found in top-grossing films produced in six European countries (Germany, Iceland, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom), and two Latin American countries (Argentina and Mexico). Nine in 10 movies from Iceland and Argentina contain smoking, including films rated for young people, the report states.The WHO Smoke-Free Movie report, in line with WHO FCTC, the guidelines, recommends policy measures including age classification ratings to reduce overall exposure of youth to tobacco imagery, certifying in credits that producers receive nothing of value from anyone in exchange for using or displaying tobacco products, and ending display of tobacco brands. Strong anti-smoking advertisements should be shown before films containing tobacco imagery in all distribution channels (cinemas, televisions, online) and media productions that promote smoking should be ineligible for public subsidies. Armando Peruga, programme manager of WHO’s Tobacco-Free Initiative, says some countries have taken steps to limit tobacco imagery in films. “China has ordered that ‘excessive’ smoking scenes should not be shown in films. India has implemented new rules on tobacco imagery and brand display in domestic and imported films and TV programmes,” he added. “But more can and must be done.” read more
