WBA boss Tony Pulis envious of strength in depth at former club Stoke’s disposal

admin no comments

first_img The Baggies boss has been impressed by the Potters and Mark Hughes’ squad building ahead of Saturday’s game at The Hawthorns. Pulis managed Stoke between 2002 and 2005, before returning 12 months later for a seven-year stay. Hughes succeeded him in 2013 and, having guided the Potters to ninth last term, has them 10th this season, just one point off the top six. “When you look at the three (forwards) they’re playing and then you look at the bench – (Mame Biram) Diouf’s not playing, (Peter) Crouch is not playing (Jonathan) Walters is not playing” Pulis told a press conference. “You go on and on and on. “They’ve got a real strong squad. They finished in the top 10 last year and have added to that. “They’ve put a strong squad together so we know it will be a tough game. “I look forward to it, hosting my former club – results have shown than this year there’s not a big a gap as their normally is.” The Baggies will assess Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe’s hamstring complaints while Salomon Rondon and James McClean serve the final game of their bans, meaning Saido Berahino could start after eight straight games as a substitute. Albion’s squad is thin without the quartet and Pulis wants to strengthen in a transfer window which he expects to be full of big spending at the top and bottom of the Barclays Premier League. “It’s as competitive as it’s ever been,” Pulis, who has long been trailing QPR’s Matty Phillips, said. “Everyone will be trying to strengthen in the window to finish in the top half where they want to be or to make sure they are outside of the bottom parts where it’s important for clubs.” West Brom boss Tony Pulis is envious of former club Stoke’s embarrassment of riches.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

International Finance Major introduced

admin no comments

first_imgThe Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences has created a new major: international relations and the global economy,  combining two of the school’s most popular majors, international relations and economics.The new major will allow students to take courses involving both international relations theories with a more technical curriculum that includes global finance, statistics for economists, and micro- and macroeconomics.According to USC News, students will acquire mathematical and analytical skills as well as a foundation in political theory pertaining to the global economy.As many Dornsife students were already building double majors in related disciplines, the new major will allow them to explore both international relations and economic theories without having to take overlapping courses to fulfill separate major requirements.The designer of the IRGE curriculum, assistant professor of international relations Ben Graham, explained the rationale behind the creation of this interdisciplinary major.“The idea is that the domestic economy is affected by the global economy,” Graham said. “Students need to be aware of the global politics shaping the domestic economy and the political forces that affect markets.”Graham also emphasized the need for students interested in global business to develop an understanding of how international economies operate.“You’re always competing in a global economy,” Graham said. “So there’s a lot to be said for putting an international spin on studying the economy.”last_img read more

first_imgHowever, the move wouldn’t be far-fetched at all. The Sierra Canyon boys basketball team just concluded its 2017-18 season by claiming the CIF State Open Division title, led by an NBA bloodline that garnered national media attention throughout the season.KJ Martin (son of Kenyon Martin) and Scottie Pippen Jr. (son of Scottie Pippen) started as juniors last season and will be go-to players as seniors this fall along with high-flying guard Cassius Stanley, who is ranked as one of the best high school basketball prospects in the country by various ranking services.It’s not the first San Fernando Valley school that has been the center of LeBron James’ interest for his son ‘Bronny.’ In September of last year, James took a picture with basketball players from Notre Dame High of Sherman Oaks on a day when James was rumored to have taken a tour of the school.As free agency approaches, LeBron’s biggest decision might not even be where he decides to play, but where he wants his kids to compete.“My boys were a lot younger last time I made a decision like this,” LeBron James said after Game 4 of the NBA Finals. “I have a teenage boy, a pre-teen (boy), and a little girl … sitting down and considering everything, my family will be a big part of whatever I decide to do.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Since the final buzzer of the NBA Finals sounded in Cleveland, the next destination for NBA superstar LeBron James, who is expected to be a free agent this summer, has been dominating basketball headlines.Rumors of James landing in Los Angeles gained more momentum Monday after former NBA point guard Gary Payton said that James’ son, LeBron James Jr., “committed” to attend Sierra Canyon High in Chatsworth – a suburb in Northern Los Angeles County.“Anything could happen. People don’t look at everything. (LeBron James’) son just committed to Sierra Canyon, which is in the valley of L.A.,” Payton told Sheena Marie, a reporter at USA TODAY Sports Digital Property Black Sports Online. “If everybody looks at it with a son at that age, you don’t want to be away from him during that period of time. … I think that (Bronny) needs a father during that time and that’s it. I don’t think LeBron is that type of parent, I think he wants to be around his son a lot and see his son play a lot.”center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersDespite Payton’s comments, multiple sources from Sierra Canyon’s athletic department have made it clear that nothing is “official.”Of course, Payton’s comments created a social media frenzy that is anchored by the thought that news of LeBron James’ 13-year-old son coming to a school in the San Fernando Valley somehow means the superstar will sign with the Lakers, or even the Clippers.Chris Palmer, an NBA reporter for Spectrum, was also told by Sierra Canyon that no “commitment” has been made.last_img read more
