It will catch up with them for sure, probably around the Christmas period which is hectic.”“Their manager is good with that, giving them some time off when he can, but it’s a Catch 22 situation because Harry is so driven, he wants to score goals and be involved so he doesn’t want to miss out on games.”“As a fellow player, you try to analyze his strengths and weaknesses and honestly — I don’t see too many of those. As a striker, he’s great in the air, very good with his left foot, brilliant with his right and he’s quicker than a lot of people think.”“When he doesn’t score for a few games, suddenly he’s supposed to be gone, tired.”“I think his performance against Spain this week shows you he still has plenty of energy right now.”last_img read more

first_imgWe are about to embark on what could possibly be one of the best matches of the season in the Premier League, Manchester City visits Chelsea.We are not prepared for what’s coming on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, the match to end all matches between Chelsea and Manchester City.The current Premier League leaders have become virtually unbeatable again this season, but one of the clubs that can actually hurt them in the competition is actually Maurizio Sarri’s Blues.The London club has already faltered 10 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side, they have proved that not having Eden Hazard at the top of his game has been the main reason why they lost a few matches recently and they are looking to redeem themselves with a victory against the current boss in English football.The last match the Blues played at Wolverhampton was a very painful defeat against a very surprising Nuno Espirito Santo side, that was able to hold keep Eden Hazard at bay and received enormous help from the fans that attended Molineux Stadium on Wednesday.This loss was possibly a huge factor that could play against Chelsea against Manchester City, a squad that is reaching perfection at the moment and will be very hard to beat.2️⃣4️⃣ hours…#CHEMCI 🔜! pic.twitter.com/ule8mI3HzL— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) December 7, 2018This is actually the very last obstacle that the Citizens will have during the first half of the season, Maurizio Sarri’s style has deteriorated a little bit in the last couple of months due to key players getting injured and others not living up to the expectations surrounding them.This is actually the ideal moment for key figures like N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Cesc Fabregas, and Eden Hazard himself to get back in their groove for the remainder of the season before 2019 starts.A victory this Saturday just weeks before the excruciating holiday season for English football, would be the ideal motivation this squad needs in order to not lose their already compromised top-four position because Arsenal is following them closely and only waiting for them to lose another match in order to claim that spot.Even if the Blues are clearly the weaker link for this match, it should be interesting to watch the two most offensive styles in the Premier League clashing against each other and see which is more effective.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.We are all also eager to see which of both squads is the one who keeps the ball possession for longer than the other squad, but we have a feeling that Guardiola’s team has a slight advantage.Attention turns to #CHEMCI… https://t.co/7cvW3DmTsk— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) December 6, 2018Pep has a much easier task for this match, mainly because the squad is currently flying and they don’t look like they will lose momentum even for this match.However, losing this game could mean that Liverpool will have a chance to get ahead of them at the top of the table if Jürgen Klopp’s side wins at Bournemouth.At the start of the season we all thought that Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea had a chance to fight for the title because they were one of the most beautiful to watch clubs in the competition, but their recent results have made us all realize that this is a two-horse race between the champion Manchester City, and the title contender Liverpool FC.Either way, we are certain that Maurizio Sarri will want to at least hurt the Citizens at Stamford Bridge as we expect them to go out guns blazing with everything they got for this match.It shall be one of the most entertaining matches of the weekend inside an already incredible next few days, where we will also have a Derby in Spain, and a continental final in the city of Madrid..@aguerosergiokun on his way to a memorable treble at Stamford Bridge! ⚡️ #mancity pic.twitter.com/Q2dpQW5dh6— Manchester City (@ManCity) December 7, 2018Who will win this match between Chelsea and Manchester City on Saturday?

That’s the biggest thing for me.“It’s nothing about that first season or anything; it’s this season and I feel as if I have proven that with goals and assists.“That’s what you want to be doing, you want to be trying to help your forwards and I’m doing that right now.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica, cable television, cease transmission, subscribers Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, April 24 (JIS): Subscriber television (cable) operators are to cease transmission of 19 unlicensed channels in their packages by May 31 this year, or face sanctions.The directive was issued by the Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica (BCJ) today (April 24), at a press conference at its headquarters in New Kingston.It represents the first phase of enforcement measures being undertaken by the Commission in relation to copyright regulations. The channels to be affected include nine from the Encore suite of channels, five from the Showtime group of channels, four from the Starz group, as well as the channel known as the ‘Movie Channel Extra’.Chairman of the BCJ, Professor Hopeton Dunn, said this action had become necessary as the distribution of unlicenced channels by local cable companies “has been elevated to a contentious international trade issue.”He noted that cable television operators in Jamaica are required to comply with local and international copyright laws and regulations, but have in fact, been operating in breach of these requirements for many years, particularly in relation to the channels and programmes they sell to subscribers. This, he said, is in spite of many measures that have been taken by the Commission to secure compliance.Professor Dunn pointed out that with approximately 98 unauthorised channels being transmitted, additional enforcement measures are required for the orderly, phased elimination of unlicenced cable channel operations in Jamaica. In this initial phase of the compliance regime, the Chairman noted that cable operators have been directed to remove the 19 channels and to provide their subscribers with notice of discontinuation and an explanation of the reasons for doing so. “Cable operators must also make whatever arrangements become necessary, based on the terms of contracts with subscribers, including refunds and channel substitution, where applicable and appropriate,” he said.Cable operators have also been directed, with immediate effect, to cease the promotion of any unlicenced channel to members of the public, as these will constitute false advertising and a violation of the Commission’s directive.The Commission’s decision is as a result of intensive meetings and discussions with all stakeholders over the past six months. This included local cable operators, international channel owners, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, among other Government departments.“Our focus has been on ensuring that our cable operators obtain legitimate content for distribution in Jamaica and on arriving at a strategy for the orderly and phased elimination of unlicenced cable channels operating in Jamaica,” Professor Dunn said.The Commission Chairman, said it regrets the inconvenience that these copyright compliance actions will cause Jamaicans, and asked for understanding of “these necessary regulatory changes in order to bring Jamaica into compliance with our international commitments and in order that subscribers are being sold cable channels which are legal in Jamaica”.“The Broadcasting Commission has, and must continue to enforce the rules governing broadcasting, and in particular, the requirements for compliance with the Copyright Act,” he said.“The public is being assured that we will remain vigilant in relation to the fair and balanced implementation of these compliance requirements and that we will maintain the ongoing dialogue that we have been having with all the stakeholders in order to ensure that there are settled arrangements and where possible, the crafting of new approaches for a more durable arrangement in relation to the cable sector,” Professor Dunn said.The full list of channels to be discontinued in Jamaica are: Encore Black; Encore Family; Encore Love; Encore Suspense; Encore WAM; Encore Classic; . Encore Drama; Encore Mystery; Encore Movie Plex; Showtime East; Showtime West; Showtime TOO; Showtime 2; Showtime Showcase; Starz Comedy; Starz West; Starz Kids and Family; Starz Multiplex; and The Movie Channel Xtra.last_img read more

first_imgOLYMPIA — Three paid signature gatherers apparently committed extensive fraud while collecting support for two Washington initiatives, elections officials said Wednesday.The secretary of state’s office said many of the 8,000 signatures submitted by the collectors were invalid. The problematic filings were linked to a Tim Eyman measure that would extend the time for initiative signature collection, and another proposal that would require companies to label genetically modified food.Both initiatives are still valid because the remaining signatures were sufficient to get the measures certified, election officials said.Secretary of State Kim Wyman said the cases involve Washington’s worst apparent initiative fraud in recent history.“This kind of disrespect of the voters and our cherished initiative process cannot be tolerated, and I want these cases fully investigated and, if appropriate, as it certainly appears, I want these people prosecuted,” Wyman said in a statement.The secretary of state’s office declined to name the signature gatherers but is turning over its findings to the Washington State Patrol for investigation. Officials spotted the problems during their review of thousands of petition sheets submitted by the initiative sponsors.One of the solicitors who collected support for both campaigns submitted more than 5,000 signatures, with only about 4 to 5 percent of them being valid.Paid signature gathering has become a common part of Washington’s initiative process. Wyman said the secretary of state’s office has always feared that the pay-per-signature method encourages bad behavior.“The good news is that we do have rigorous fraud-check procedures and law enforcement that takes this seriously,” Wyman said.last_img read more

first_imgLA CENTER — In a detached tone, Brianna, a fresh-faced and youthful-looking student, sketched a scene of lost innocence.She was in Seattle on a whim to party with two older guys she barely knew. She’d lied to her parents, telling them she was at a girlfriend’s house for the weekend.The guys seemed nice enough, attractive, possibly wealthy. But she soon discovered their motives weren’t merely impure, they were also likely criminal.They told Brianna, who’d just turned 18, she could make a lot more money stripping than she could working her other job, waiting tables at a La Center restaurant.This, she thought, was what adults do.“The strip club was really loud and really dark — it smelled,” Brianna said, recalling her first moments there. “Everything there was really sticky. It had germs on it.”The guys told her she could make a lot of money with her young looks. So why not get out of La Center? Why not head down to Phoenix, Ariz., and catch some sun?Why not empty her bank account and hand it over? They’d take care of her.In only a few days, the requests became increasingly unreasonable, and she realized something was wrong. What she didn’t know until later was that she was on the brink of entering the sex trade world.last_img read more
