Guardiola explains change in Sterling

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola (R) speaks to midfielder Raheem Sterling during their English Premier League match against Liverpool, at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, on March 19, 2017MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – Pep Guardiola believes confidence has been the key factor in Raheem Sterling’s emergence as Manchester City’s hero this season.Sterling hit a 95th minute winner in City’s 2-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday, to hand Guardiola’s side a club record 12th successive Premier League triumph. It’s far from the first time that the England international has proved to be a match-winner for City this season.Sterling has hit late winners against Bournemouth, Feyenoord and Huddersfield, with his latest heroics prompting wild celebrations at the Etihad.“[Raheem] is a winning player, winning games,” said Guardiola.“Before it was not like this now he’s full of confidence.“I spoke to him last season many times, you have to discover the pleasure for yourself to win games – to score those goals.“The guys who score are full of joy. The goal was amazing because there’s no space.“It was a good night, I think all the supporters create some special moments tonight and in the last second we enjoyed the situation.“You have to celebrate it.

14 SAME SEX COUPLES ENTER CIVIL UNIONS IN DONEGAL

first_imgFOURTEEN same sex couples have entered civil unions in Donegal in the first six months of the year, rights campaigners have said.The figures were released by the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network which is campaigning for marriage rights.More than 1,500 couples in the country have entered civil unions. “Civil Partnerships continue to be a great success for Ireland. Lesbian and gay couples in every county in Ireland have celebrated their love and commitment to each other, warmly supported by their families, friends and neighbours” said Brian Sheehan, Director of GLEN.“These 1,500 couples have contributed enormously to the remarkable progress in Ireland for lesbian and gay people and to further progress towards marriage and full constitutional equality for lesbian and gay couples and families.“Civil partnerships have been a truly national success with couples in every single county entering into a civil partnership.”Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald recently recognised marriages of lesbian and gay couples in England and Wales, who will automatically be treated as civil partners in Ireland. Couples who live in Ireland who have married in England and Wales join the hundreds of other lesbian and gay couples who married or entered civil partnership abroad, whose relationships are automatically recognised in Ireland as civil partnerships.Mr Sheehan said the growing number of unions showed Ireland was ready for gay marriage.“We believe that the strong welcome for civil partnerships throughout the country shows that Ireland is ready for the next step to provide for civil marriage for lesbian and gay couples through a constitutional referendum,” said he said.Kieran Rose, chairperson of GLEN welcomed new poll findings supporting gay and lesbian relationships.“A new poll in The Sunday Times shows a huge majority of people – 86% of people – approve of lesbian and gay relationships. The poll also found that two thirds of Irish people approved of lesbian and gay couples adopting,” said Rose. “This is another welcome demonstration of the transformation in attitudes to lesbian and gay people and of the generosity of Irish voters in their willingness to extend equal status and dignity to lesbian and gay people and lesbian and gay headed families.”14 SAME SEX COUPLES ENTER CIVIL UNIONS IN DONEGAL was last modified: August 19th, 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:civil partnershipsdonegalgayglenlesbianpollSunday Timeslast_img read more

Businessman attacked farmer’s tractor with hammer in land dispute

first_imgA businessman attacked a farmer’s tractor with a hammer and told him he would get it in his head the next time.Derek Long appeared at Falcarragh District Court today charged with attacking neighbour Neil Boyle. The court heard that there was a long-running dispute between the pair over lands.On November 30th, 2016, Mr Boyle was in his Massey Ferguson tractor at Magherablade, Creeslough, when he was approached by Long.Long, who operates a second-hand furniture business, lunged at the tractor and managed to interfere with wiring in the engine.A short time later, Long attacked the rear of Mr Boyle’s tractor with a hammer.There was then a hissing sound from the tractor.The court heard that as he was running away, Long shouted at Mr Boyle “The next time it will be the back of your head.”Garda Inspector Sean Grant said the total amount of damage to the tractor was €110.Solicitor for the accused, Mr Donough Cleary said the issue arose out of a dispute over land boundaries which is scheduled to be heard at a civil court.He added that his client, who was charged with assault and causing criminal damage, was a man in his 50s who had no previous convictions.He said he had hired a digital land surveyor in a bid to determine the issues over land boundaries between the parties.Judge Paul Kelly said that both parties may well end up in a different court to settle their civil dispute.But he added “Even if he thought he was in the right he has no right to do what he did.”Mr Boyle said his tractor had been out of action for three or four days as a result of the incident.Judge Kelly ordered Long to pay a total of €200 compensation to his neighbour and said he would be disposed to striking the matter out if this was done.The Judge added “He’s getting off very lightly at that.”The case was adjourned to allow for payment.Businessman attacked farmer’s tractor with hammer in land dispute was last modified: February 24th, 2018 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:attackCreesloughDerek LongdonegalFalcarraghfarmerNeil Boylelast_img read more

L.A. regains dubious title of smog capital

first_imgWe’re No. 1! The greater Los Angeles region shoved aside Houston and the San Joaquin Valley as the national smog capital in 2005 despite having cleaner air this year than last, according to the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Air quality in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties exceeded the EPA’s smog standard on 84 days this year. The EPA considers the totals to be final numbers for 2005 because the smog season runs from May through September. “It’s a tough job cleaning up the ozone at this point because there are not a lot of easy emissions to target,” said Joe Cassmassi, planning and rules manager for the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the region’s main smog-fighting agency. “The low-hanging fruit, as a lot of people like to say, has been taken.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Houston and the San Joaquin Valley, which in recent years rivaled or surpassed L.A. as the country’s smoggiest areas, enjoyed exceptionally clean air this year. But L.A.’s rank comes with an asterisk. The EPA this year switched from measuring smog over a one-hour period to measuring it over an eight-hour span. Under the old system, Houston would have edged out L.A. for the top spot by violating the standard on 33 days compared with 30 days. Although it led the nation in smoggy days, the Los Angeles region’s air is considerably cleaner than it used to be. The air violated federal standards on 90 days in 2004 and 120 days in 2003. And in 1976, it exceeded federal standards for more than half the year. Los Angeles could lose federal transportation funding if the area continues to violate the smog standard by 2021. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Let us know who’s going to be talking and what you’re talking about, plus where and when to show up. We’re sure you’ll find a few kindred spirits who’d love to attend and ask questions – and maybe offer some pre-show feedback for tweaking your notes!Our own Marshall Kirkpatrick will be moderating a panel with Scott Raymond of Gowalla, Brett Slatkin of Google, Dare Obasanjo of Microsoft and Jack Moffitt of Collecta – talk about an all-star cast! – on real-time technology. Marshall’s especially suited to this task since he’s the man behind RWW’s mammoth state-of-the-industry report, The Real-Time Web and Its Future. Here are the gory details:Can the Real-Time Web Be Realized?“The emergence of the real-time web enables an unprecedented level of user engagement and dynamic content online.

I’ll be talking with Mike Trotzke of SproutBox, Mitch Lasky of Benchmark Capital and Dave McClure of the Founders’ Fund.Who Needs Venture Capital?“Only a fraction of business financing comes from Sand Hill Road. Yet entrepreneurs still obsess over traditional big meeting/big money Silicon Valley venture capital. This heated panel debates what types of companies actually benefit from VC and reviews concrete examples of alternatives to traditional venture capital.”When: Monday, March 15, 12:30 pmWhere: Hilton D Also, for those of you who read along last year during my cross-country travels through the tech scenes in Nashville, Omaha, Chicago, New York and beyond, there’s the RoadTwip core conversation with our brothers-in-tech Dave Delaney and Kurt Daradics (also a co-founder of CitySourced).RoadTwip“Last Spring, three kids set out in one car for two weeks.
