Klopp keeps door open for possible Liverpool buys

Klopp keeps door open for possible Liverpool buys

first_imgLIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool are well placed to end a frustrating 28-year wait for the top-flight title, but manager Juergen Klopp says he will be quick to make a move in next month’s transfer window if his squad suddenly needs reinforcing. Klopp’s side is four points in front of second-placed Manchester City after 18 of 38 Premier League matches as it looks to become champions of England for the 19th time, second only to Manchester United’s haul of 20. “I’m very happy with the players I’ve got but I’ve always said, you don’t know,” Liverpool’s German coach said as he prepared for Wednesday’s home game with Newcastle. “I’ll keep the door open. “If some things happen, then we need to have a look. A monstrous number of games are coming up. It is really important that we can react. If something dramatically changes, we will need to have a look but if nothing happens, then we will not do anything.” Klopp saluted the versatility of James Milner after the former England international filled in at right-back for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in Friday’s 2-0 victory at Wolverhampton. “We don’t have that many options anymore because we have two injured centre-halves (Joe Gomez and Joel Matip), so that immediately limits everything,” Klopp said. “We are not that versatile. Yes, Milner can play five or six different positions, that is not a problem for him, but there are not a lot of players who can play that many positions.”last_img read more

A place to call home

A place to call home

first_imgPACOIMA – During years of living in apartments and staying with relatives, Latina Davis dreamed of the little things she could do as a homeowner – drill holes in the walls for shelving units and paint the bedroom for her two children. Two months ago, Habitat for Humanity handed Davis, her daughter Tenea and son Diamon the keys to a three-bedroom duplex in Pacoima. And for the first time, Davis’ walls are truly her own. “I just want to be able to do something permanent in my home,” said Davis, a 29-year-old construction administrator. The Davises are among the four families who will own homes dedicated Saturday by the San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valley Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that builds homes for low-income residents. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant About 50 volunteers, financial sponsors and friends gathered in front of the neat community of pastel green and peach duplexes to celebrate the achievement. One by one, the new homeowners expressed their thanks to the crowd and received housewarming presents – a Bible, a potted plant, a Starbucks coffee maker and a gift basket from a local temple. “Thank you, guys, you guys really helped my parents,” Emily Martinez told the crowd on behalf of her parents, Mario and Annabel. In a few weeks, the close-knit Martinez family will move from their cramped Los Angeles apartment to a more spacious home, complete with living and dining rooms, in the gated community. While they are the only family who hasn’t yet moved in, the delay is barely a blip on the radar after waiting an entire lifetime for the chance to own a home, Mario Martinez said. “I used to imagine owning my own home. But as the years went by it seemed impossible. This is a blessing,” he said. A dozen families now live in the duplexes that Habitat for Humanity has built on Pierce Street, and seven others are still waiting for their homes in the 20-unit complex to be completed. Each two-unit building cost an estimated $200,000 to build, excluding the cost of land and property taxes. Volunteers stress that while Habitat makes the homes available to families who would otherwise not be able to own them, the houses are not free. Each family must help build their home, putting in at least 450 to 500 hours of “sweat equity,” which means getting up at 6 a.m. on Saturdays to hammer and nail, install drywall and paint window frames. “This is a hand-up, not a hand out,” said volunteer Patrick Hall. The families are responsible for paying their own mortgage, which is provided at zero interest through the nonprofit agency. While the amount each family pays is based on its size and income, the average family of four ends up paying about $850 a month to live in the new Pacoima homes. The application process can be long and arduous. Davis applied in 1999 and was finally approved in 2002, after paying off debts and getting her credit in order. “It was a struggle,” she said. Sometimes the only thing that kept her going were the two children asking her when they would get their own rooms. But the years of working for her home are behind her. Now it’s time to hang those shelves. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

Pep Guardiola likens John Stones to former Barcelona defender Ronald Koeman

Pep Guardiola likens John Stones to former Barcelona defender Ronald Koeman

first_imgManchester City boss Pep Guardiola can see echoes of Ronald Koeman in John Stones.Everton supporters may grimace at such a suggestion given City took the £47.5million defender from Goodison Park just as Koeman was settling in as Toffees manager this summer.But the 22-year-old has slotted in well at the Etihad Stadium and City boss Guardiola can see qualities in him that he previously saw when playing alongside Koeman at Barcelona.“They’re quite similar in the sense that they both like to play the ball,” said Guardiola, whose side host Koeman’s Everton on Saturday.“Normally, a central defender is a big guy who plays with the head and marks man to man and is strong in the air. We need that, of course, but now it’s the added plus of the quality of his play. John has similarities to Ronald, especially in terms of mentality.“John is a guy who wants to play under pressure. Normally, the players who like to play the ball handle the pressure better than the other ones.“Ronald was by far one of the best central defenders I’ve ever met. I cannot compare now, not yet, but maybe in the future.“The long balls are always… wow. Ronald was the best ever at that. But John is young enough that he can improve.“I am so glad that he played for the national team and did well. In the last European Cup (Euro 2016) he didn’t play one minute. Now he’s playing all the games and he’s becoming an important player for the national team. I am so happy about that.”Stones’ final season at Everton was an inconsistent one but such has been his progression under Guardiola that he already looks to be a key component of the new City era.Asked how Stones had managed to settle so quickly, Guardiola said: “Because he’s good. There’s no secrets, in football the good players adapt quickly and John is good and adapts quick.” The City boss has been impressed with the defender since his big money summer move 1last_img read more

‘We can improve a lot’ – says Chelsea boss Antonio Conte after Southampton win

‘We can improve a lot’ – says Chelsea boss Antonio Conte after Southampton win

first_imgAntonio Conte warned that Chelsea will get keep getting better after they kept the heat on the Premier League pace-setters with a 2-0 victory at Southampton.Convincing wins for Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool on Saturday had put pressure on Conte’s men as they faced a Saints side unbeaten in five matches.But goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa ensured they responded with a comfortable triumph to stay a point behind the top three.The Blues registered a fourth straight league win for the first time since April 2015, when they were coasting towards their last title.Ominously for their rivals, they have scored 11 goals in those four games and conceded none, with their three-man defence holding firm once again without captain John Terry.But boss Conte insisted: “In this moment it’s not important to look at the table.“The most important thing is to work hard and trust the work. Now, game by game, I’m seeing a lot of positive things.“I have confidence because we can improve a lot. We must continue to work, and not look at the table.“It’s very difficult to talk about the championship now. Many games must pass before you can see whether you can fight for the title.“When you start the second part of the season our ideas will be clearer. To stay close to first place is good, and gives us great confidence.”Hazard put Chelsea on their way after only six minutes. He fed the ball out to Victor Moses on the right, received the return ball, turned Steven Davis on the byline and from a tight angle drove a low shot through Fraser Forster’s legs.It was the Belgium winger’s fifth league goal of the season, already beating his tally from the whole of the last disappointing campaign.Costa all but settled the match in the 55th minute when he collected Hazard’s short pass, pushed the ball away from Cuco Martina and curled a stunning effort into the far corner.Saints, to their credit, did not stop probing for a way back into the game and almost found it when Steven Davis’ header dropped onto the top of the crossbar before Charlie Austin had a goal chalked off for offside.“I think we played very well in the first half, but it’s difficult to play against this team when you concede a goal with the first action of the match,” manager Claude Puel said.“The first goal changed the profile of the game.“In the second half we tried but after the second goal it was difficult to come back because my players were tired.“It was difficult to find solutions. It’s disappointing because we tried to play good football. We can do better.”last_img read more

State’s only tribal college may close

State’s only tribal college may close

first_imgDAVIS – On a remote stretch of land where stray chickens outnumber students, California’s only tribal college is clinging to life against seemingly insurmountable odds. D-Q University has had its share of hard times since it was founded on the outskirts of this liberal university town west of Sacramento in 1971, during the peak of the American Indian self-determination movement. Its turbulent history includes land disputes with the neighboring University of California, low enrollment and a loss of federal accreditation in early 2005. But even its most ardent supporters acknowledge that the school has hit an all-time low. In June, the board dismissed the university’s interim president, Art Apodaca, accusing him of squandering the school’s few remaining assets. It also rejected his proposal to boost enrollment by dividing D-Q into an Indian-only “D” school and a separate, non-Indian “Q” school. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los AngelesWith the remaining six students drifting away and no money for even a working telephone line, a handful of board members and community volunteers are desperately searching for a way to keep the school and its mission alive. “Every day it’s a new crisis,” said Susan Reece, a former board member who now spends several days a week on campus sorting through piles of paperwork left behind by Apodaca and his predecessors. “Every day there’s a new group of bills and new debts we didn’t know about.” In early August, the six-member board decided to abandon its efforts to keep students on campus for the fall semester. Instead, it will try to attract revenue by cleaning up the campus and renting it out for workshops and conferences. “Hopefully, it will draw in people from different areas and let them know we’re here,” board member Calvin Hedrick said. But he acknowledged that in its current condition, D-Q is nowhere near ready to accommodate visitors. The main meeting areas are largely bare, except for the occasional piece of worn-out furniture and various items left behind by former students and staff members. Weeds cover the grounds, and six rusted, broken-down cars sit clustered next to one of the back buildings. Reece said her biggest fear is that D-Q will lose its 600 acres to the federal government if it is found to be violating its federal property deed. The deed stipulates that the land must be maintained as an educational institution. The demise of D-Q University would deal a heavy blow to the tribal college movement, supporters say. The school was one of the six original tribal colleges in the United States, all founded between 1968 and 1972. That group created the American Indian Higher Education Consortium in 1972 to address common challenges such as fundraising and attracting qualified faculty. Nationwide, the U.S. Department of Education recognizes 34 tribal colleges, most of which are two-year schools. The programs range in size from several hundred students to several thousand, serving about 30,000 total students nationwide each year, according to Department of Education estimates. Indian students “were failing miserably in mainstream institutions before the tribal college movement came around,” said Gerald Gipp, executive director of the Virginia-based consortium.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Judge throws out crash insurance claims after doctor calls it a “bumper car’ incident

first_imgA Judge has thrown out personal injury claims by two people after hearing the car crash in which they were in had the same impact as a bumper car at at a fairground.Judge James O’Donoghue dismissed the cases of Eileen Ward and Charlie Ward when they appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court. The pair, who are related by marriage, were both claiming against the driver of the car, Mr Ward’s wife Kathleen, following a collision at Ratoath in Co Meath in February, 2012.Mrs Kathleen Ward, from Ard Glass, Glencar Irish, Letterkenny, did not give evidence in today’s case.Both claimants gave evidence that they suffered neck and back injuries as a result of the accident and were suing Liberty Insurance for personal injuries.The amount of financial damages being sought by both people was not disclosed during the case.Eileen Ward, aged 42, from Cavan at Letterkenny Circuit Court today (North West Newspix)However, the court was told that there was minimal impact in the crash.Two other people in the car had also started personal injury claims against the driver but one had already been struck out.The incident happened when the Nissan Primera car being driven by Ms Kathleen Ward, slid into the back of a car stopped at a set of traffic lights at Fairyhouse, Ratoath.There were five occupants in the car including Eileen Ward, Charlie Ward, Kathleen Ward, another Charlie Ward and a cousin Michael Mongan.The Toyota Corrolla car parked at the red traffic light was being driven by computer science student Mr Liviu Ioan Pantille who was returning from lectures at Maynooth University.Mr Pantille was unhurt in the incident and paid the €100 to repair the tow bar of his car out of his own pocket, the court heard.The court was shown pictures of some small damage to the front of the Nissan Primera car caused by the tow bar of the other car.Kathleen Ward, 42, said she was a front seat passenger and banged her face off the dashboard of the car upon impact but stressed that she was wearing a seatbelt.She described the impact of both cars as “shocking.”She said she suffered lower back pain and attended Cavan General Hospital the following day and took a course of painkillers.Charlie Ward, aged 30, from St martin’s Estate, Cavan, said he was a back-seat passenger, who also banged his head off the headrest in front of him.He claimed he suffered head and neck pain and attended Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital four days after the accident.Neither claimants suffered long-term injury and a medical report on Mrs Eileen Ward said her pain would leave in weeks rather than months.Barrister for driver Mrs Kathleen Ward, Seamus Breen, claimed minimal impact occurred during the crash.In a medical report, Dr Martin Coyne compared the injuries suffered to that people might receive in a bumper car incident at a fairground.Judge James O’Donoghue dismissed both claims saying he was satisfied there was minimal impact and that they were “opportunist claims.”“I am happy on the evidence that there was a very small impact of a minimal type. These are opportunist claims that I am meeting on a regular basis throughout the country.“I am satisfied that it was a bumper car like incident and it has all the hallmarks of an opportunist effort to exploit a minimal impact and make the most of it,” he said.He dismissed both claims.Judge throws out crash insurance claims after doctor calls it a “bumper car’ incident was last modified: January 11th, 2017 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:ClaimcourtcrashinusranceJudge James O’Donoghueletterkennylast_img read more

Zettaset Launches Data Warehouse for Security Forensics

Zettaset Launches Data Warehouse for Security Forensics

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#enterprise#news 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Zettaset, formerly known as GOTO Metrics, announced a new product today: a data warehouse for forensic analysis called Security Data Warehouse (SDW). It will enable risk management professionals to analyze multi-petabyte data sets for anomalies or problematic patterns in data collected from firewalls, website traffic, security devices, transaction logs or other sources.SDW uses Zettaset’s data management solution, which provides a graphical interface running on top of Apache Hadoop. SDW is designed to be integrated with existing security event information management systems (SEIMs), but can also serve as a standalone data warehouse.Zettaset is focused on offering Hadoop solutions to verticals such as security, healthcare and telecommunications. SDW reminds me of HPCC Systems, the data analysis platform open-sourced by LexisNexis. HPCC was originally created by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, and has support for data warehousing and analysis. However, the version now sold by the spinoff company doesn’t include isn’t optimized to any particular vertical. SDW is meant to be a more of a turnkey solution.Zettaset changed its name from GOTO Metrics earlier this month when it closed $3 million in funding from Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ) and Epic Ventures.
