I anticipate a couple more years at least.”Hamilton said also that he would not consider winning a fourth title elevated him beyond his childhood hero Brazilian Ayrton Senna, who had won three championships before his death in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.“Ayrton’s life was cut short and I think, had he the opportunity to continue and race in safe conditions, he would have continued to win more championships.ADVERTISEMENT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene “I don’t look upon him and think that I am better because I have more wins and championships and poles, but I feel very proud for my name to be mentioned alongside his name — and that’s all.”Looking back on his early years in F1 with McLaren and his first championship win, he added: “In 2008 I was a kid. I had all the natural talent I have today, but I didn’t have the knowledge or experience.“I’m much better equipped now than I was in 2008. It’s actually been more enjoyable this year being in the position I am. I’m a lot more comfortable in my own skin so that’s really helped me.”Looking ahead to Sunday’s race and his chance to secure another title, he added: “I’m now fighting a championship-winning team in Ferrari and a champion driver, but I’m much better equipped. It’s actually been more enjoyable this year being in the position I am.“When you are 18, you think you know everything, but you don’t know anything.”On Friday, Hamilton wound up second in both sessions, having also been outpaced by Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas in the morning.“It’s been a good day,” said Hamilton. “It didn’t really start out great, particularly in the second session with the big spin on my first lap that really threw me off the session and made it a little bit tricky to get the run on the super-soft tyres.“I had put myself on the back foot, but the single lap and then the long run on the ultra-soft was probably one of the best I’ve ever done.“I don’t think I’ve ever done 26 laps that consistent, apart from in a race maybe.“We got lots of information, the track was feeling better in the second session once the temperature came up -– so, overall, it was a good day.” Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgA tragic accident involving a truck and a minibus occurred over the weekend in Clara Town, on Bushrod Island, resulting in the sudden death of at least one person and several others wounded and unconscious.Eyewitness told the Daily Observer that the accident took place around 2 p.m. The truck was making a U-turn in the middle of the road, but with speed, thereby crashing into the bus.“After crashing into the bus, the bus somersaulted three times and we had to rush there to help save those who were fighting for survival,” an eye witness narrated.”Several others sustained injuries, while other passengers were unconscious. The wounded and those who were unconscious were later taken to the nearby health facilities where some of them were treated and discharged.“This was a terrible scene as the driver of the bus is also taken to the hospital, and I think some people may not survive, because of the number of unconscious people we saw before they were boarded onto a waiting ambulance,” another eyewitness sadly explained.An ambulance that arrived on the accident scene, also took away the wounded persons as well as those who became unconscious.The bus marked with plate number TB-1856, according to Liberia National Police (LNP) accident investigators on the scene, had on board over 15 passengers who were en-route from Gardnersville to Central Monrovia when the accident occurred.The officer said the truck was taken to the Free Port Police Station along with the driver, but did not provide details of the truck driver’s condition.Upon the arrival of the Daily Observer, the Global Communities burial team was seen dressing the deceased carboy, who instantly died. Members of the team refused to speak with newsmen.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (left) celebrates after scoring the only goal in the Champions League qualifier match against Hoffenheim in Sinsheim, Germany © AFP / Daniel ROLANDLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 16 – Trent Alexander-Arnold’s stunning free-kick for Liverpool in their 2-1 Champions League win over Hoffenheim had the British media purring ‘Who needs Coutinho?’ in reference to the want-away Brazilian star.The 18-year-old’s opening goal for Liverpool in the tie in Germany — setting them up nicely for next week’s home leg — incited the Daily Mail to headline their report “Alexander The Great”. Alexander-Arnold called it a “thing of dreams” to score on his European debut for his “boyhood club” in their Champions League play-off, first-leg clash, and was lavishly praised by club icon Steven Gerrard.But had Barcelona target Philippe Coutinho been fit, Alexander-Arnold probably wouldn’t even have taken the free-kick.Gerrard, who coaches the Liverpool Under-18 side, said the former club mascot — another Liverpool great Jamie Carragher tweeted a photo of him and Alexander-Arnold in the tunnel before a League Cup match in 2009 — could threaten England international Nathan Clyne’s first choice spot at fullback this season.“It was a fabulous free-kick and it’s ironic really because Coutinho might have taken it if he was available,” said Gerrard.“He has played superbly in general play but to have the character to take that before the likes of (Jordan) Henderson and (Sadio) Mane says a lot.“I know this kid very well, he’s going to be a top, top player and Nathaniel Clyne has to be very, very careful this season because he is already breathing down his neck.”Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp lavished praise on the teenager, whose deftly-struck free-kick wrong-footed the Hoffenheim defence to give Liverpool the lead on 35 minutes.“I find it astounding that an 18-year-old has the balls to cheekily smash in a free-kick from a situation like that,” enthused Klopp.“It was a very intense game for him, he is a great young player with a lot of potential.”Former Republic of Ireland striking great Tony Cascarino, now a respected pundit for The Times, also praised the youngster for his boldness in stepping up to take the freekick, which reflected “the respect that his team-mates have for him”.Cascarino added that defensively it was hard to judge him — though his “electric pace” is eye-catching — and whilst he was at fault for the late Hoffenheim goal, he would learn from it.“Overall he’s very athletic, though he needs to fill out a little, but that will come,” wrote Cascarino.“In terms of defending it’s pretty hard to judge him in this Liverpool team because the full backs are often so exposed.“The late Hoffenheim goal was the only time he put a foot wrong… but that’s why he plays these big games, to learn and get the mistakes out of his system.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgAnd in a day dominated by late goals, Jose Gimenez’s header handed Uruguay a perfect start by beating an Egypt side shorn of Mohamed Salah 1-0.Here, AFP Sports looks at three things we learned from day two at the World Cup.Ronaldo reigns supreme in SochiRonaldo celebrates the goal that looked set to rescue Portugal a point. Photo/GETTYSpain’s troublesome week looked set for a much-needed win until Ronaldo curled home a sensational free-kick to cap a hat-trick and salvage Portugal a point two minutes from time.Ronaldo had scored just three goals in his previous three World Cups, but already looks a strong favourite to win the Golden Boot as he won then dispatched a fourth minute penalty and took advantage of an uncharacteristic error from David de Gea to twice put Portugal in front before the break.Diego Costa had silenced suggestions he is incompatible with Spain’s short-passing game with a double of his own before Nacho’s wonder strike looked to have sealed the perfect debut for Fernando Hierro just two days after he was handed the job as Spain coach.But the five-time World Player of the Year wasn’t to be denied when he lined up a free-kick 20 yards from goal before bending it over the Spanish wall and dipping perfectly into the top corner.Egypt relying on Salah returnEgypt Mohamed Salah takes part in a training session in YekaterinburgSalah endured a miserable 26th birthday as he was forced to watch from the bench with his injured shoulder not quite recovered as Uruguay snatched all three points in Yekaterinburg.Egypt manager Hector Cuper had claimed on the eve of the game Salah was “almost 100 percent sure” to feature.But with his side holding out against the firepower of Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani until the 89th minute, Cuper elected against risking Salah as a substitute.With Russia thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0 in Group A’s opening match, Egypt will almost certainly need to beat the hosts in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday to progress to the last 16.Salah carried the Pharaohs to their first World Cup since 1990 and his quick return is paramount to avoid a tournament Egyptians have looked forward to for so long ending prematurely.Morocco ‘crucify’ themselvesMorocco’s Aziz Bouhaddouz scored an injury-time own goal to hand Iran a 1-0 World Cup winMorocco coach Herve Renard lamented a series of self-inflicted wounds as their return to the World Cup after a 20-year wait ended in the most heartbreaking fashion when Aziz Bouhaddouz’s 95th minute own goal handed Iran a famous 1-0 win in Saint Petersburg.The Atlas Lions dominated for the opening half hour, but failed to take their chances through Hakim Ziyach, Ayoub El Kaabi and Mehdi Benatia.Morocco qualified on the back of six consecutive clean sheets in qualifying, and they were only undone by one of their own when a distraught Bouhaddouz threw himself at a last ditch free-kick and bulleted the ball home at the near post.With the might of Spain and Portugal to come in Group B, Morocco’s chances of now making the last 16 hang by a thread.“We were crucified by our own errors,” lamented Renard.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ronaldo rips away, team mates in tow, to celebrate his 51st career hat-trick, and the 51st treble in World Cup history.Photo/GETTYSAINT PETERSBURG, Russia, June 15 – The blockbuster clash of the day at the World Cup didn’t disappoint as Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick denied Spain the perfect response to a turbulent week following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui in a thrilling 3-3 draw in Sochi.Both sides will remain confident of progressing to the knockout stages as Iran shocked Morocco 1-0 in Saint Petersburg to move to the top of Group B.last_img read more

first_imgEverton manager Roberto Martinez believes if his side becomes more ruthless in front of goal they can be a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League.The Toffees drew 1-1 with Norwich at Carrow Road after Romelu Lukaku’s goal was cancelled out by Wes Hoolahan’s strike.In the first period Martinez’s men could have found themselves home and hosed had they scored from several good chances and the Spaniard believes they should have won and wants them to learn from the frustrating draw.He said: “Anyone who saw the game saw a team who performed a lot better than the home team and we deserved the three points. The reality is, though, the scoreline doesn’t reflect that.”Asked if the Toffees were drawing too many games they should be winning, Martinez added. “Yes. But we’re not losing and that is because we are performing well and when you perform well the results will come.“I think we’re still a very young group and days like today will allow us to become a ruthless team.“We feel devastated because we didn’t deserve to drop two points today and we didn’t deserve to drop two points on Monday (against Crystal Palace).“It is how we react as a team and as a football club. I think the fans have got a big role to play in helping our young players because if we get through this period with a lesson learned and become a better team then we are capable of anything.”last_img read more

first_imgA man who pleaded guilty to two counts under the Wildlife Act has claimed he was merely shooting deer to prevent the spread of tuberculosis.Damien Whoriskey claimed he had lost 13 cows from his farm through TB and blamed the spread of vermin including foxes and badgers. The 30 year old, who previously pleaded to two counts under the Wildlife Act, appeared at Falcarragh Court today, in a bid to have his shooting license restored.However, Garda Superintendent David Kelly said he was objecting to Whoriskey getting his license back.He said the objections were for two reasons – that Whoriskey shot three deer (including a hind) out of season and that he shot them from a public road.The court heard how on March 3rd, 2015 he had gone to help a friend put up hoarding to shelter a house at Maghery.The pair finished early and as they were heading home, a deer ran out in front of them on the road.Whoriskey said he had his gun with him and took a shot at the deer which was about 20 yards off the road up a hill.He said he found the deer dead, bled him and then put the deer not the van and drove off.A mile up the road, they were stopped by Pat Vaughan, head wildlife ranger at Glenveagh National Park.Mr Vaughan asked Whoriskey, from Keeldrum, Gortahork, if he had shot a deer and Whoriskey said he had and showed the dead deer to the ranger in the back of the van.He said he was shocked to be stopped by ranger Vaughan as he had thought the shooting season extended into March.Ranger Vaughan told Whoriskey he was seizing his rifle.Another approach while this was going on and said “You aren’t the boys I’m looking for.”The man said he had encountered problems with people shooting deer for the past five years.Mr Whoriskey told the court that he was having a lot of trouble with deer coming onto his land, eating his silage and it was costing him money.He also gave evidence that he had lost a total of 13 cows, which were heavily in calf and he believed it was from the spread of TB through vermin including wild deer.Solicitor for Whoriskey, Patsy Gallagher, said his client had no previous convictions and had undertaken a course to receive his license form a recognised dealer.He said his client had pledged guilty to the two previous charges under what he termed the “old poaching act.”He added that his client had no mental health problems and that the area in which the deer were shot was a very rural area.The court was told that the nearest house to the area of the last shooting was two miles away.Judge David Kelly asked Whoriskey if it would be normal to carry his rifle in somebody else’s van?Whoriskey replied that he was passing by his own lands and that is why he took the rifle with him.Judge Kelly adjourned the case until December 21st and suggested that Whoriskey wasn’t quite as innocent as he made out to be but that he is a person of general good character.He said that it should be reinforced to Whoriskey about the timing and conditions of the granting of a gun license and if he was then satisfied, he would be disposed to granting the application for the restoration of the gun license.Man who illegally shot three deer claimed he was preventing spread of TB was last modified: November 16th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdeerGlenveaghpoachingshootinglast_img read more

first_imgA UCD law graduate from Donegal has been elected as the new president of the Union of Students in Ireland.John Logue (23), from Letterkenny, will take up his one-year term of office on July 1st.In the traditional closing address to USI Congress – held in Ballinasloe, Co Galway, this week – the president-elect said he was honoured and humbled to be chosen by students “to lead them in what is a hugely challenging time for education”. “Ireland has prided itself on an education sector that produces the best and brightest the world has to offer,” he told the conference.“However, with increasing pressure on funding we are starving ourselves of the chance to live up to this aspiration. Now, more than ever, the Government need to realise that education is not a luxury, it is an economic imperative,” Mr Logue said.USI president Gary Redmond congratulated Mr. Logue in his election and said he would be a “strong and vibrant leader of our 250,000 strong membership”.“I hope that John will take up the challenge laid down by President Higgins at Congress this year and ensure that students play a central and influential role in the rebuilding of the Irish Republic,” Mr Redmond added.

first_imgDDTV: FROM NEIL DOHERTY AT CELTIC PARK: GARY Hooper scored all five of Celtic’s goals as they duffed Hearts here today on title party Sunday.The Hoops striker was in sparkling form as the home side was determined to crown a great season with a party.And party they did. Hooper bagged two close-range finishes in the opening eight minutes and added a penalty when Joe Ledley was clipped by Arvydas Novikovas before half-time.It was more of the same in part two as Celtic continued to dominate after the interval and Hooper rounded keeper Jamie MacDonald to score on 66 minutes.With three minutes remaining, Hooper was in the right place again to complete the scoring….and help spark a great Celtic Park party.Manager Neil Lennon was delighted with his team’s display and their season as a whole.“I was delighted with the performance today and it was a fitting way to end the season,” the Celtic manager said.“Since winning the tie at Kilmarnock we’ve not really had the opportunity to reflect on what we’ve achieved but we can do that now and it’s a fantastic feeling.”Off the pitch Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has sought to dispel fan concerns on how the club will act in a Scottish Premier League vote on Rangers’ future.A majority of fans oppose admitting a “newco” Rangers into the top flight.“We will do what is in the best interests of Celtic Football Club and our supporters, consistent with upholding the interests and reputation of Scottish football,” said Lawwell. SPL clubs will vote on new financial fair play rules on 30 May.Rangers were being sold today for just £8.5M.A consortium headed by the former Sheffield United chief executive Charles Green has had a bid accepted.THE HOOPS REPORT: HOOPER END TO SEASON AS GARY PLAYS FIVE-STAR ROLE was last modified: May 13th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:THE HOOPS REPORT: HOOPER END TO SEASON AS GARY PLAYS FIVE-STAR ROLElast_img read more

first_imgInspector HarrisonGARDAÍ have issued an urgent appeal to motorists to ‘slow down’ following the deaths of five people in one area on County Donegal.All the fatalities took place in the Twin Towns area, with the Barnesmore Gap particularly dangerous, since January last year.Three people have died on our county’s roads so far this year. Extra gardaí will be on duty across Donegal today.There will be a particular emphasis this Bank Holiday weekend on the N15, said the head of Donegal’s Road Traffic Division Inspector Michael Harrison.“Five people have died in the Ballybofey area in the past 18 months, since January last year,” the inspector told Donegal Daily.“Garda patrols and speed detection vans will be in operation throughout County Donegal this weekend. “There will be a particular emphasis on the N15, but it won’t be the only area which we are watching.“We want people to enjoy the bank holiday weekend, but we want them to enjoy it safely.“Our message is simple – people need to slow down, watch what speed they are doing. The facts tell us that if a collision occurs, the slower the vehicle is travelling, it is less likely to cause a fatality or serious injury.”Serious InjuriesThe inspector said he did not want it to be forgotten that people have also suffered life-changing injuries. “Two people have suffered serious injuries this year as a result of traffic accidents,” said Inspector Harrison.“The devastation caused to families when a young person dies on our roads cannot be described.“It is also devastating when people suffer serious life-changing injuries; it is heart-breaking.”Statistics show that young men aged between 17 and 25 are most likely to be involved in road traffic incidents. “I would appeal to them, to their parents, to get the message across that they need to slow down,” he added.‘SLOW DOWN’ PLEA AS FIVE DIE IN JUST ONE AREA OF DONEGAL was last modified: May 30th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallybofeydonegalDonegal TownInspector Michael HarrisonN15Slow Down campaignThe Barnesmore Gaplast_img read more
