They are struggling, but I wouldn’t call it a crisis.“We must go to San Siro aiming to win and do it by remaining faithful to our style of football and having fun. I consider Alessio Romagnoli to be the best Italian defender after Giorgio Chiellini.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Falcons William Moore Arrested on Battery Charge

admin no comments

William Moore, the Atlanta Falcons’ starting safety, was arrested and booked into Fulton County Jail on a battery charge on Thursday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.WSB-TV reported that Moore was involved in a dispute with a woman and allegedly grabbed her shoulder.“We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information,” a Falcons spokesperson said in a statement released to the AJC. “Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time.”Moore was due in court Friday morning.The Falcons signed Moore to a five-year, $30 million contract extension just before the 2009 second-round pick out of Missouri was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Moore’s deal included $14 million in guaranteed money, including an $8.25 million signing bonus and a fully guaranteed base salary of $2.25 million for the 2013 season. Moore’s $3.5 million base salary for 2014 is guaranteed for injury only.While it is still very early in the legal process, a suspension under the league’s personal conduct policy could void those guaranteed salaries.After missing all but two games of his rookie season due to a hamstring injury, Moore has started 38 of 40 games over the last three seasons, totaling 201 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 11 interceptions and 25 passes defensed. Moore had four interceptions in 12 games and was added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster as a Super Bowl replacement. read more

Giroud doesnt need to be prolific for us to be successful

admin no comments

first_imgChelsea Football Club manager Maurizio Sarri insists the club don’t need striker, Olivier Giroud to be prolific to achieve their targets this season.The former Arsenal striker will be contention with Alvaro Morata for the starting striker position when Chelsea travel to the Turf Moor to face Burnley on Sunday.Giroud has gone 10 Chelsea matches without a goal in all competitions this season, but Sarri believes the World Cup winner pulls his weight in selfless link-up play.“One month ago, we were concerned about the fact the midfielders didn’t score,” said Sarri, according to Daily Mail.“And now in the last three matches, Barkley scored two goals and Loftus three goals so I think that if we are able to continue to play this football maybe in a month the strikers will be able to score.”Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“You know the characteristics of Giroud: Giroud usually is not used to scoring a lot of goals in a season but he’s always very, very useful for the team, for his team-mates.”“So Giroud is not a problem for us. And Morata in the last five matches, scored two goals.”“I think they will be able to do better but the most important thing is that the team will continue to play this football.”“Usually the winner is the team who concedes less goals. In Italy – I don’t know here – but I think the same.”last_img read more

Figo thinks Luka Modric deserved the Goal 50 award

admin no comments

first_imgPortuguese legend Luis Figo, confirmed that he believes Luka Modric completely deserves the Goal 50 Award for best player in the world.We recently reported that Goal.com, recently named Luka Modric as the best player in the world for the year 2018 and people like Luis Figo have supported the Croatian midfielder after receiving the honor.This may come as a surprise to a lot of people because the former Real Madrid player, is from Portugal and he isn’t supporting his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, who also had a fantastic year after winning the Champions League for Real Madrid and scoring over 50 goals last season.But Figo has been doing this for the last couple of months, recently he also stated that Ronaldo Nazario is the better player out of the two forwards who bear the same name.Now he is talking about Luka Modric deserving the award and practically stating that he is the top candidate to win the Ballon d’Or in December.We have no idea if Figo has something against Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Juventus forward has never liked it when someone diminishes his fork in such fashion and much less from a fellow Portuguese like Luis.🏅 Luka Modric being named the best player in the world👀 Which players have impressed him in 2018✍ Eden Hazard to Real MadridWe spoke to Luis Figo! #Goal50 pic.twitter.com/FkHTo8Zyj2— Goal (@goal) November 14, 2018Figo who also played for Real Madrid and even won the Ballon d’Or himself in the year 2000, has been making the rounds for Goal as a spokesperson for the website and made a stern defense of the Croatian midfielder who reached a historic World Cup final with his national team last summer.Unfortunately for Luka, he wasn’t able to win the trophy after losing against France but this didn’t matter to the 42 voters from all editions on the publication when they cast their vote. They all agree with what Figo said this week about Modric.“Modric is one of those who certainly deserved an individual prize,” former Madrid star Figo said to Goal.“These awards are always subjective but, without a doubt, Modric has had a wonderful season. “He made the difference with his national team and with Real Madrid.”“For this reason, his prize is well deserved. I live in Madrid and although we did not play together, we attended the same places, knew the same people, also shared family moments together.”Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“He is a great person and it makes me happy that this year he has won so many individual trophies.”🏆 Ballon d’Or 2018 prediction:🥇 Cristiano #Ronaldo 🥈 Luka #Modric 🥉 Kylian #MbappéRETWEET if you think Ronaldo deserves to win the 2018 #BallondOr !!! pic.twitter.com/dEuZE0kRWD— Cristiano Ronaldo (@CRonaldoV2) November 10, 2018But the Ballon d’Or trophy will be a whole other story, France Football has been known for having a little more common sense when they deliver their prestigious Ballon d’Or award and this year should be no different.Modric did win the Champions League this year alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, but the individual honor is one that may likely go to a French player after the World Cup success that Les Bleus had during the competition played in Russia.The top candidates for the trophy are Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, and Kylian Mbappé might give us all an unexpected surprise and might squeeze into the final three-men list f players who complete the podium for this year’s Ballon d’Or.Modric winning the trophy after getting so many accolades already, doesn’t seem like the obvious choice as all the voters favor the other players who are mentioned here.Even Raphael Varane seems like a player who could appear on the final list instead of Luka Modric.French journalist Eric Mamruth has “leaked” what the Ballon d’Or Top 3 Podium will be…Luka ModricRaphael VaraneKylian Mbappe pic.twitter.com/txqIsPPGEn— RMadridHome (@RMadridHome_) November 11, 2018What do you think about Luis Figo’s defense for Luka Modric?

Samsung Galaxy A50 costs 350 and has three rear cameras available June

admin no comments

first_img Turo The Galaxy A50 has three rear cameras. Samsung Samsung’s A-series of midrange phones have three new members: the Galaxy A50, A20 and A10E. If you want a new Galaxy phone, these are some of your cheapest options, sitting just above Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy J line. The A-series is much cheaper than a top tier Galaxy phone. The Galaxy S10 Plus, for instance, costs $1,000 and the supposedly upcoming Galaxy Fold (Samsung delayed its launch due to a number of screen issues on its pre-production units) is priced at nearly $2,000.The most advanced of the new trio is the Galaxy A50, which we got an early glimpse  of in February at MWC 2019. It costs $350 and features a 6.4-inch display, a 4,000-mAh battery and 64GB of built-in storage with the option to expand up to 512GB. On the back are three cameras, which includes a wide-angle lens as well as a “depth lens,” which is used to take portrait shots with blurry, dramatic backgrounds. The $250 Galaxy A20 has a 6.4-inch screen, a 13-megapixel rear camera and the same 4,000-mAh battery as the A50. Lastly, the cheapest of the bunch of the Galaxy A10E. At $180, it features a 5.83-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera and a 3,000-mAh battery. Both of the phones have just 32GB of onboard memory, but you can expand storage with a microSD card (not included).All three phones run Android 9.0, with Samsung’s new One UI layered on top. Though exact availability dates for the Galaxy A20 and A10E have not been released, the Galaxy A50 will be available on June 13.

At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us).

Tags I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Samsung,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Rep Lower votes to open state government to more scrutiny

admin no comments

first_img State Rep. Jim Lower today voted for a bipartisan legislative package to make state government more accountable to Michigan residents.Lower, of Cedar Lake, said the 11-bill package makes the governor and lieutenant governor subject to the Freedom of Information Act and creates a similar disclosure requirement for state representatives and senators called the Legislative Open Records Act.“Government transparency should be the norm, not the exception, and Michigan is one of just a handful of states that does not place its Legislature and governor under open records laws,” Lower said. “I am proud to vote for legislation during Sunshine Week that gives people the ability to see how their hard-earned tax dollars are used.”The legislation is similar to a package of bills introduced last session and passed overwhelmingly by the House. The bills did not make it to the governor for signature.The House recently put a salary database of all House employees on its website to provide more accountability to taxpayers.##### 16Mar Rep.

Vodafone Germany has unveiled plans to invest €2 b

admin no comments

first_imgVodafone Germany has unveiled plans to invest €2 billion by the end of 2021 on Gigabit fibre broadband services.The UK-headquartered telecoms giant said it expects todeliver around 13.7 million new gigabit connections to German consumers andenterprises under the plan.Vodafone Germany CEO, Hannes Ametsreiter, described the investment strategy as “transformational” and predicted it would deliver “incremental revenue growth and attractive returns for Vodafone’s shareholders.”“The project is consistent with our strategic goal to become a leading converged communications operator in Germany, enabled by a best-in-class Gigabit network infrastructure,” he said.Vodafone said that today 25% of German broadband connections are still below 50Mbps and only 2% are at Gigabit speeds, and claimed the investment will allow local enterprises and communities to move away from copper-based internet services.At €1.4 – €1.6 billion, the bulk of the investment is targeted at Vodafone’s ‘Giga-Business’ initiative, with a target of reaching 100,000 companies in some 2,000 business parks by the end of calendar 2021.This builds on Vodafone’s July 2017-announced partnership with fibre-to-the-premises provider Deutsche Glasfaser to reach 19 of Düsseldorf’s industrial and commercial business parks by early 2018.Roughly €0.2 – €0.4 billion of the investment will be allocated to Vodafone’s ‘Giga-Municipality’ scheme, with a goal of offering gigabit services to roughly one million consumer households in rural areas, in co-operation with local municipalities, by the end of 2021.The remaining €0.2 billion of investment will be spent on enhancing Vodafone’s entire cable footprint from the current top speed of 500 Mbps to 1 gigabit per second, through the accelerated adoption of DOCSIS 3.1 technology. This initiative is dubbed ‘Giga-Cable’.Vodafone said it expects its overall investment to drive an uplift of one to two percentage points in Vodafone Germany’s service revenue growth rate, compared to its prior expectations, starting from full year 2019/20.last_img read more
