‘Conte should replace Wenger at Arsenal’

first_imgArsenal Conte should replace Wenger at Arsenal – Carragher Jamie Smith 02:36 1/20/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Conte Wenger Getty Images Arsenal Antonio Conte Arsène Wenger Arsenal v Chelsea League Cup Premier League Chelsea FA Cup The former Liverpool defender believes the ideal replacement for a long-serving boss at Emirates Stadiuum is a direct rival at Stamford Bridge Antonio Conte would be the ideal replacement for Arsene Wenger when the veteran Frenchman leaves his post as Arsenal manager, according to Jamie Carragher.Wenger signed a new two-year deal at the Emirates Stadium in May, but has not won the league title since the 2003-04 season, while the Gunners are on a five-game winless run in all competitions and in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification for the second year running.Conte – reportedly frustrated with Chelsea’s transfer policy – also penned fresh terms at the end of last season, although they did not extend his tenure and he has consistently been linked with a range of other managerial positions, including the Italian national team and Serie A underachievers AC Milan.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player And Carragher believes Arsenal should put Conte at the top of their wishlist for when Wenger eventually decides to end his 21-year reign at the helm.”If Conte’s situation is precarious – the Chelsea hierarchy ambivalent on his future and Conte increasingly frustrated by the structure of the club – there will be a long queue for his services,” Carragher wrote in a column for the Telegraph.”I could imagine Real Madrid considering Conte as a replacement for Zinedine Zidane, whose position looks vulnerable. The Italian national team would beg him to go back after their failure to qualify for the World Cup.”There is talk of him returning to Italian football but having managed the national team and led Juventus to three Serie A titles in a row, would heading home at this stage of his career be so appealing? He has nothing more to prove in his own country.”There is one club in particular, much closer to his current home, I feel should be monitoring developments more than others; a club desperately in need of Conte’s persona, who would send a rocket through every department of their institution and instantly change perceptions. That club is Arsenal.”I can imagine no more suitable replacement for Arsene Wenger than Conte.”It would be one of the most astute managerial appointments in Premier League history.”Arsenal are still stuck in a cycle of mediocrity they have been unable to escape for several years. I will never lose respect for Wenger – his legacy in English football is preserved and he will always be considered one of the all-time greats – but I said last year his time was coming to an end and nothing has changed.”Conte is too good for Chelsea to let go. They should be desperately trying to keep him, not only because he will bring more success to the club, but to ensure he does not come back to haunt them when he returns with a rival.”If the Chelsea board cannot see that, Arsenal should do everything in their power to ensure it is a short Tube ride to his next destination.”last_img read more

The Indian cricketer drew ire from the entire nation for his misogynistic comments.Since the episode aired on TV, Pandya has appolased twice and seen his image take a nosedive with him losing out on a brand endorsement deal with personal care giants Gillette.Within a week of airing the episode, Pandya fell out with Gillette, who are also one of the sponsers of the India-Australia one-day international series.Gillette on Tuesday came out with “#TheBestMenCanBe” campaign on soocial media as the company will help “inspire, educate and help men of all ages achieve their personal ‘best’ and become role models for the next generation.”Boys will be boys? Isn’t it time we stopped excusing bad behavior? Re-think and take action by joining us at #TheBestMenCanBe (@Gillette) January 14, 2019Many have already started to wonder whether the parting with Pandya and the start of their new campaign, is not mere co-incidence.Not jumping to conclusions, as to which inspired the other (the move to cancel deal or idea of the campaign), the whole incident has become somewhat of a PR nightmare for all.On Tuesdayy itself, Khar Gymkhana revoked the honorary three year membership offered to Pandya. “Our 4000 member strong social media handle has received a lot of outcry against Hardik Pandya and his comments.

I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move,” when Karan Johar asked him why he doesn’t ask women for their names in nightclubs.Rahul then went on to reveal how they both decide on who gets to date a girl when Karan Johar asked them what happens when both of them like a particular person? “Upto the woman,” Rahul replied.But Pandya interrupted and said, “Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai.

Measure of US jobless claims over the past 4 weeks hits 6year

Measure of US jobless claims over the past 4 weeks hits 6-year low, signalling fewer layoffs WASHINGTON – Americans who have a job may take comfort in knowing that companies are laying off fewer people than at any time since before the Great Recession.The government said Thursday that weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits have averaged 335,500 over the past month. That’s the lowest level since November 2007, which was one month before the recession began.But while most companies have stopped cutting jobs, many remain reluctant to hire. That’s bad news for the roughly 11.5 million Americans who are unemployed and a major reason the unemployment rate is still so high four years after the recession officially ended.“We have seen a disconnect between the level of hiring and firing,” said Bricklin Dwyer, an economist at BNP Paribas.Unemployment applications are a proxy for layoffs. At the depths of the recession, in March 2009, weekly claims surged to 670,000. They have fallen steadily ever since and are now half that level.The number of first-time applications did rise slightly last week, to a seasonally adjusted 330,000. But that’s just 5,000 higher than the 5 1/2-year low reached two weeks ago.Most economists say small shifts like that are normal and applications are essentially at a point where they may not fall much further.“Readings below 300K are rare and rarely sustained,” Jonathan Basile, director of U.S. economics at Credit Suisse, wrote in a note to clients.The drop in layoffs helps explain why job growth has increased this year to an average of 192,000 net jobs a month, even while overall economic growth has stayed sluggish.Net job gains show the number of people hired minus those who lose or quit their jobs. And when companies cut fewer jobs, it doesn’t take many new hires to create a high net gain.The Labor Department says layoffs have averaged 1.6 million a month through June, fewer than a monthly average of nearly 1.8 million in the pre-recession year 2006.Hiring hasn’t bounced back as fast. Employers hired an average 4.3 million people a month this year through June, well below the 2006 monthly average of 5.3 million.Despite the drop in unemployment applications, net job growth slowed in July. Employers created just 162,000 net jobs, the fewest in four months.The unemployment rate dropped to a 4 1/2-year low of 7.4 per cent last month, down from 7.6 per cent in June. That is still well above the 5 per cent to 6 per cent associated with a normal economy.So what will it take for more companies to begin adding new workers to their payrolls?“Really not a mysterious question,” says Gerard McLean, CEO of Rivershark Inc., a developer of web applications in Englewood, Ohio. “We’re sitting here waiting for the promise of customers. With money. Really that simple.”But most workers are waiting for a raise. Many haven’t seen their wages increase much faster than inflation in recent years. And this year they have less take-home pay because of an increase in Social Security taxes.The overall economy has grown at a lacklustre annual rate of 1.4 per cent in the first half of the year, hobbled by the tax hikes, federal spending cuts and broader global weakness.Many economists are optimistic that growth will pick up in the second half of the year. But most business owners can’t take the risk that comes with adding and training new workers without seeing more evidence.Rivershark has four employees, down from a peak of six in 2006. And McLean says he has no plans to hire anytime soon.“Any additional hiring will not produce additional sales, just create payroll expense,” McLean said. “Hiring is just a risk for which there will be no reward.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Paul Wiseman And Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Aug 8, 2013 8:56 am MDT read more

TSX closes slightly higher DHX Media soars 24 on specialty TV deal

TSX closes slightly higher, DHX Media soars 24% on specialty TV deal with Bell TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed with a small gain Thursday amid a relatively quiet session with American markets shuttered for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.The S&P/TSX composite index rose 8.77 points to 13,370.83, off the highs of the session as the financial sector moved into negative territory.“U.S. capital markets often set the tone around the world,” observed Chris King, portfolio manager at Morgan, Meighen and Associates.“I do expect the next couple of days to be fairly quiet.”A major gainer was Halifax-based DHX Media Ltd. (TSX:DHX). Its stock soared $1.02 or 24.46 per cent to $5.19 after it said it would pay about $170 million in cash to buy several children’s specialty TV channels, including Family, under a proposed deal with Bell Media (TSX:BCE). BCE rose 15 cents to $46.82.The loonie was up 0.08 of a cent to 94.46 cents US even as data showed that Canada’s broadest measure of trade continued to run at a deficit in the third quarter.Statistics Canada reported that the current account deficit decreased $500 million to $15.5 billion in the third quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis. That was about $1 billion more than economists expected.New York markets reopen Friday for a shortened session and traders will be anxious to see if Americans came out in force on Thursday night to kick off the start of the holiday shopping season.King said it’s fascinating to watch people “try to divine” how the rest of the season will turn out, based on first few hours of Black Friday shopping.Black Friday refers to the day after U.S. Thanksgiving, which is on the last Thursday of November each year and about a month before Christmas. According to lore, it’s the first day that retailers can expect to go into the black for the year due to holiday-related sales.“I don’t know about the correlation between Black Friday and the rest of the season but it probably is pretty significant,” King said.The metals and mining component led TSX advancers, up 2.23 per cent while March copper was up one cent at US$3.20 a pound in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange late Thursday afternoon. First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) climbed 65 cents to C$17.93 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) was ahead 71 cents to $25.95.The gold sector rose 0.5 per cent as December bullion climbed $6.50 to US$1,244.40. Iamgold (TSX:IMG) improved by 12 cents to C$4.53.The consumer staples sector was also supportive as shares in convenience store chain Alimentation Couche-Tard (TSX:ATD.B) ran ahead $1.17 to $77.96 after earlier hitting a new 52-week high of $79.18.The bidding battle for Australia’s Warrnambool Cheese & Butter Factory Co. continued Thursday. Murray Goulburn, Australia’s largest dairy exporter, has increased its offer for Warrnambool to AU$9.50 a share in cash, which would value Warrnambool at AU$532 million. MG’s chief rival is Canada’s Saputo Inc. (TSX:SAP), which announced Monday that it would pay AU$9.20 per share if receives more than half of Warrnambool’s shares or AU$9 per share if it doesn’t get a majority. Saputo shares were up 28 cents to C$48.56.Energy stocks were also off the best levels of the day with the sector weakening by 0.07 per cent as the January crude contract fell five cents to a six-month low of US$92.25. Oil racked up a steep loss of $1.38 on Wednesday as U.S. oil inventories unexpectedly rose last week instead of declining.The Energy Department reported that the U.S. supply of crude oil is now 391.4 million barrels, which is 4.6 per cent above year-ago levels and “well above the upper limit of the average range for this time of year.” by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 28, 2013 6:28 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

That Weird Jon Lester Trade Wasnt That Weird

This year’s Major League Baseball trade-deadline fire sale mostly went to script, headlined by the Jon Lester/Yoenis Cespedes mega deal where the Oakland A’s and Boston Red Sox helped each other out in the usual fashion: One got to clear millions in salaries off the books while gaining a few parts, and the other obtained a high-impact starter for its championship run. The wrinkle in this case is that the team doing the dumping is big-market, big-payroll Boston, and the one gearing up for the post-season is small market, small-payroll Oakland.For a good breakdown of this trade, see Jonah Keri’s piece in Grantland. Here’s a quote that had me laughing at my desk:It’s hard to blame GM Ben Cherington for embracing the fire-sale approach. … Even if Lester leads the A’s to World Series glory, it still looks like the Sox made out like bandits in this deal.So one team may substantially increase its chances of winning the World Series, while the other makes out like bandits! Keri is absolutely right though: The reason these fire-sale deals are so common is because they benefit both sides. When a team’s competing for the playoffs, winning now is much more valuable, and when a team’s out of contention, money is more valuable.You know who understands this? Oakland General Manager Billy Beane. In competitive years under Beane’s tenure (when the A’s finished first or second in their division), the A’s have made July deals gaining them a net total of 9.61 wins above replacement (relative to the players they had to give away), while taking on an extra $16 million worth of salary for those years (of which, the A’s would pay a remainder, depending on the terms of the trade). Note: Yes, that is an pretty good money-to-WAR ratio, but it’s what would you expect. Conversely, in years when the A’s have not been in contention, Oakland has sold a net of 12.25 WAR, while shedding the remainder of $46 million worth of salary.For the small-payroll team to be the fire-sale buyer is rare, especially with as large a pay gap as exists between the Red Sox and Athletics (more than $79 million). Since 1996, just $21 million worth of salary obligations (or remainder thereof) have gone to the small side of a payroll gap that big (about 1.2 percent of contract value for all trades conducted in the period), and those were offset by those teams shedding $109 million. In other words, poor teams typically trade big contracts for little ones.Overall, since 1996, bigger payroll teams have sent $736 million in present-year salary to smaller payroll teams. The bigger payroll teams have taken on $1.02 billion, meaning the poorer teams netted close to $300 million.That said, the Oakland/Red Sox deal isn’t unusual if we ignore payroll and just look at the standings. Oakland currently holds the top spot in the AL, the Red Sox are in 13th. For trades between teams with at least a 12-spot gap between them in the standings, $161 million in salary shifted to the better teams in exchange for just $7 million going the other way. Overall, the team with the better position in the standings has taken on about $1.35 billion dollars in salary while shedding just $413 million. Meaning, the lower ranked teams have netted nearly $900 million in fire-sale trades (almost triple what poorer teams have done).Let’s look at this in chart form. I’ve plotted all the contracts traded in July from 1996 through 2013 (plus Lester’s) below, with the size of the players salary for the given season represented by area of the bubble:There are four quadrants representing the four basic types of trades. Quadrants kitty-corner from each other are essentially trade partners — e.g. when poor teams find themselves in the better competitive spot, they seem to be pretty willing to spend money to go after wins (435 million) and are even less willing to give away assets (112 million).For fun, I ran a regression from pay gap and standings gap to the size of contract changing hands and found that pay gap is actually borderline insignificant after you account for standings (for fellow nerds: t-Stat of 6.5 for standings gap, just 1.6 for payroll gap).In other words, while the A’s-Red Sox trade appears to be extremely unusual (a fairly large outlier on the chart above), it’s not because small payroll teams just don’t usually make trades like this. It’s because small payroll teams aren’t usually in position to make trades like this. read more

Lament for the two Greek pilots killed during F16 crash

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The relatives, friends and colleagues of the two pilots who were killed in the horrific F-16 crash that occurred during a NATO training exercise in Albacete, Spain, earlier this week, will say their last goodbyes at the two men’s funerals. According to a press release of the General Staff of the Hellenic Air Force, Flight Lieutenant Panagiotis Lascaris’ funeral will take place today at noon at the Church of Aghios Antonios in Rizoupoli, Attica and the funeral of Flight Lieutenant Athanasios Zagas will take place at 3.00 pm in the church of Aghia Varvara in Argiroupoli, Attica.The remains of Panagiotis Lascaris and Athanasios Zagas, who died in the line of duty, were transferred to Athens early on Thursday with a C-27J transport aircraft of the Greek Air Force. The fighter jet was participating in a pilot training program for armed forces of NATO member-states, the Tactical Leadership Program (TLP). The F-16 belonged to the 341 Squadron of the 111th Combat Wing of Nea Aghialos and had been redeployed at the Los Lllanos airbase as part of said training program which takes place in the airbase from January 19 to February 13. For the same reason, Greece has redeployed to the Spanish airbase three more F-16 Block 50 fighter jets and 41 air force staff.In all, 10 people died (eight French soldiers amongst the dead) and 19 were injured, when the airplane fell on parked aircraft during take-off. The aircraft “suffered a loss of power and crashed on an aircraft hangar … causing damage to other aircraft which were there, ” said the ministry spokesman.Firefighters were trying to battle the blaze which erupted in the airbase and had sealed off the entire area, to prevent the fire from expanding. A group of Greek Civil Aviation experts are still investigating the area, which has been cordoned off due to the presence of toxic chemicals, in order to assist Spanish authorities.“What we know is that the F-16 crew, fairly quickly, right after the takeoff, tried to eject,” Denis Mercier told journalists. “It is an incredibly improbable accident to have an aircraft that has an engine breakdown at takeoff, flies sharply off course and falls right on top of aircraft which are getting ready to fly, so are full of fuel,” he said. “It is a series of unlucky events.”Mercier said he knew the air base well, and that there was no safety or organisational problem.“It was completely bad luck,” he said. “A few metres further and there would have been a different outcome.”“There was not much more to be done on boosting safety,” he said.The Air Force will hold a day of mourning on Monday, while President François Hollande has set Tuesday as a national day of mourning, with an official ceremony at Les Invalides, the military museum here.The two men were experienced pilots with more than 1,000 flying hours.last_img read more

US court asks to release surveillance video in Florida school shooting

first_imgIn this Wednesday, 24 February 2018, file photo, a law enforcement officer talks with students after a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla. An appeals court said news organizations are entitled to obtain surveillance video showing the law enforcement response to the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at the Florida high school. The 4th District Court of Appeal on Wednesday, 25 July upheld a lower court’s ruling that the video is public record that must be disclosed. Photo : APNews organizations are entitled to obtain surveillance video showing the law enforcement response to the Valentine’s Day mass shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school, an appeals court ruled Wednesday.The 4th District Court of Appeal upheld a lower court’s ruling that the video is public record that must be disclosed, despite objections from prosecutors and Broward County school officials. News organizations including The Associated Press are seeking the video to better understand the actions of law enforcement and first responders during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.Authorities say the school had 70 operating video cameras that day. The media organizations are not seeking any footage depicting the massacre or any victims, but rather the video from outside the shooting scene at the school’s Building 12 that depicts law enforcement actions.The Broward County State Attorney’s Office contended the video should not be released because it’s part of an ongoing criminal investigation. The school board argued that disclosing the footage might pose a security risk by showing blind spots in camera coverage at the school.The appeals judges were unpersuaded.”The media showed the need for the public to actually witness the events as they unfolded because the narrative provided by ‘the authorities’ is confusing and has shifted and changed over time,” the three judges wrote. “The footage itself would reveal if the first responders rushed into Building 12 to confront the active shooter, formed a perimeter, or hid in stairwells and behind their vehicles for an unreasonable length of time.”The school’s resource officer, former Broward Deputy Scot Peterson, retired amid accusations that he failed to follow sheriff’s office policy when he remained outside the building instead of going inside to confront the shooter. Victims’ parents and others have also charged that first responders hesitated in a way that might have cost lives. Video of Peterson’s actions has been released.The judges called it a “sad commentary on our times” that such a full public debate about school security and law enforcement response to a mass shooting is required. But they said parents and the rest of the community needed to see the video for themselves.”Parents have such a high stake in the ultimate decisions that they must have access to camera video footage here at issue and not blindly rely on school board experts to make decisions for them,” they ruled.Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said district employees have never seen the footage because it was confiscated by sheriff’s and FBI investigators shortly after the shooting. Even though his agency had opposed public release of the video for security reasons, he said its release would help the district’s investigation by a retired Secret Service agent into the shooting, including how Stoneman Douglas teachers and staff responded.”That is critical,” he said. “We are now going to try to do as much as we can.”Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said her agency did not oppose release of the exterior surveillance video “and we’re pleased to see the matter has been resolved.”The state attorney’s office declined to say whether it would appeal to the Florida Supreme Court. The appeals court said the video must be released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office within 48 hours of Wednesday’s ruling.Nikolas Cruz, 19, is charged with 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the shooting. His lawyers have said he would plead guilty if prosecutors would waive the death penalty, but that offer has been rejected.last_img read more
