Usain Bolt’s only demand for playing pro-football in Australia: A black car

first_img“The one thing we’ve been really firm on is that Usain, while trialing for a contract, be treated the same as any player,” said Mielekamp.“Obviously, we understand the realities of having somebody of his profile. But (when it comes to football) there will be no advantages.“And that’s what Bolt wants — this is about his football journey. He’s coming here for the right reasons.”Bolt dominated sprinting since taking double individual gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He went on to win a further six Olympic golds and pick up 11 world titles.   /vvpSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next He is due to arrive in Gosford, 75 kilometers (47 miles) north of Sydney, on his own this weekend and has made just one demand — that his hire car is black.“Colour of choice, apparently,” Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp told the Sydney Daily Telegraph Monday. “So black it is.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Asked if there had been other demands, he said: “No, there’s only that one.“We’ve had no requests for private bodyguards, personal masseurs, chauffeurs.

So when Usain arrives at Sydney airport this weekend, he will be traveling alone.“And when he drives, it will be in a Hyundai like everyone else at the club.”Despite the Jamaican’s no-frills approach, managing his presence will be a tougher proposition with extra security guards on hand for any public appearances and club training sessions moved to a larger venue to cater for demand.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Peza offers relief to ecozone firms Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Iceland’s World Cup coach Hallgrimsson steps down

first_imgThe 51-year-old added that it would be “good for the team to have a new vision”.The Football Association of Iceland had hoped he would extend his contract for two more years.“Heimir was naturally our first choice due to his excellent work in recent years,” Gudni Bergsson, president of the federation, said in a statement which also thanked Hallgrimsson.Hallgrimsson became an assistant coach in 2011 under Swede Lars Lagerback. He took charge after Iceland reached the quarter-finals at the 2016 Euros in France and guided Iceland to first place in a World Cup qualifying group that also included eventual finalists Croatia.With a population of 330,000, it became the smallest nation to play in a World Cup finals.In Russia, Iceland opened with a 1-1 draw against Lionel Messi’s Argentina but then lost to Nigeria and old adversary Croatia to exit at the group stage.“I’m grateful and happy to have been part of this group’s team spirit above all,” Hallgrimsson said, adding “it’s a privilege” to leave team in such good shape.The federation said it is reviewing a list of “national and foreign” candidates.Iceland face Switzerland on September 8 in the UEFA Nations League.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Heimir Hallgrimsson, who led Iceland to their first World Cup, stood down as manager on Tuesday. © AFP/File / PASCAL GUYOTREYKJAVIK, Iceland, Jul 17 – Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson stepped down on Tuesday, a few weeks after leading the tiny nation at its first World Cup.“If I had to continue, I would have done it with the same preparation, the same motivation but at some point, this kind of routine can lead to a certain weariness,” he told a press conference in Reykjavik.last_img read more

Klopp lauds ‘incredible’ Adrian’s flying start to Liverpool career

first_imgThe 32-year-old former Betis shot-stopper joined Liverpool on a free transfer to replace the departed Simon Mignolet on August 5, the day after Klopp’s team lost on penalties to Manchester City in the Community Shield.Released by West Ham United, he was thrust into the spotlight when he had to replace the injured Alisson in the first half of the Premier League opening 4-1 win against Norwich on Friday.“I don’t know where Adrian was two weeks ago when we played Man City,” said Klopp after seeing his European champions win the Super Cup for the fourth time.“When I spoke to him for the first time it was clear he would need time to get fit, but we didn’t have that time so he has to be fit now, and he was fit, he played an incredible game, he made sensational saves.”Adrian made notable interventions during the game, diving at the feet of Mateo Kovacic in the first half and batting away a Mason Mount strike late in extra time.– ‘Icing on the cake’ –However, he also fouled Abraham to give away the 101st-minute penalty which Jorginho scored to make it 2-2 after Sadio Mane’s 95th-minute second goal had seemed to have put the Merseysiders on course for an extra-time victory.“In penalty shootouts you’re always lucky but his performance over 120 minutes was incredible, making the save from the penalty was the icing on the cake,” said Klopp.“He helped us a lot and he can be really proud of what he did tonight,” added the German manager, who described Adrian as “a proper personality in the dressing room”.Adrian had once been a regular for West Ham but did not play in the Premier League last season and his last appearance before arriving at Anfield had been an FA Cup defeat by third-tier AFC Wimbledon in January.“Welcome to Liverpool! It was a crazy week, but with them it’s so easy playing at the back, so I am really happy for the team, happy to get that trophy, that title,” Adrian told BT Sport.Klopp was also effusive in his praise of the all-female refereeing team, headed by France’s Stephanie Frappart, even if he was not happy with the penalty awarded to Chelsea in extra time.“I told the ref team that if we had played like they whistled we would have won 6-0, that was my opinion, that they played a brilliant game.”0Shares0000(Visited 32 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Adrian raises aloft the UEFA Super Cup after his save in the penalty shoot-out allowed Liverpool to beat Chelsea in Istanbul © AFP / OZAN KOSEISTANBUL, Turkey, Aug 15 – Jurgen Klopp hailed “incredible” UEFA Super Cup hero Adrian and then admitted he had no idea where the goalkeeper even was a fortnight ago.The Spaniard, only in the side because of an injury to number one goalkeeper Allison Becker, saved Tammy Abraham’s penalty to give Liverpool a 5-4 shootout win against Chelsea after the showdown between Champions League and Europa League winners had finished 2-2 in Istanbul on Wednesday.last_img read more

European Super League was NOT discussed by Premier League ‘top five’ – reports

first_imgIt is understood representatives from the Premier League’s top clubs were discussing pre-season tournament arrangements in London on Tuesday, and NOT potential plans for a European Super League breakaway.Reports have emerged that officials from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United held a meeting with American billionaire Stephen Ross – the owner of NFL team the Miami Dolphins.Photographs of United’s Ed Woodward, Liverpool’s Ian Ayre, Chelsea’s Bruce Buck, City’s Ferran Soriano and Arsenal’s Ivan Gazidis leaving a meeting at the Dorchester Hotel together prompted speculation that another attempt could be made to form a new continental competition.But Ross’ organisation is also behind the International Champions Cup series, which sees a number of English clubs take on other leading sides from across Europe in pre-season tournaments around the globe.And an Arsenal spokesman, while confirming a meeting took place, insisted a European Super League breakaway was not on the agenda.“We are strongly opposed to any breakaway,” he told Press Association Sport.“Not Arsenal, nor any clubs at the meeting, are seeking changes to the Premier League and European landscape and no conversations surrounding displacing the Premier League or starting a European Super League took place.“Discussions were primarily around the ICC and formats of European competitions that would complement the existing Premier League.”It is understood Tuesday’s meeting was with Ross’ company, Relevent Sports, rather than the American billionaire himself. Involvement in the forthcoming International Champions Cup was mentioned, while changes to the Champions League format were also discussed.However, any impetus for a breakaway European Super League is believed to come from mainland Europe due to the current strength of the Premier League.Stoke Chairman Peter Coates told talkSPORT on Wednesday that the top European league are envious of the Premier League’s financial clout because of the new TV deal.UEFA confirmed it has no concrete proposals on the table to change the format of its European competitions, but is constantly reviewing the situation.A lucrative new broadcasting deal is set to kick in from the start of the 2016/2017 Premier League season, which will dwarf the current financial rewards on offer for a successful European campaign.When contacted by Press Association Sport on Wednesday, UEFA confirmed they were aware of the latest reports, but had no specific comment to make on the claims.A spokesman said: “We are constantly reviewing the formats of our competitions in consultations with stakeholders and also with the ECA [European Club Association].“At the moment, there are no concrete proposals on the table. We have just gone into a new three-year cycle for Champions League and Europa League, so we cannot offer any further comment at this stage.”Liverpool attended the meeting after an invitation from a long-standing associate, whose tournament they played in two years ago and are likely to do so again this summer during their pre-season tour of the west coast of the United States.It is understood the Merseyside club remain strong supporters of the existing structure of European football.The Premier League said they had no comment to make when contacted on Wednesday.

Genetically engineered rice earns bioscience firm enemies

first_imgRegardless, U.S. rice farmers in particular fear that important overseas customers in lucrative, biotechnology-averse countries like Japan will shun U.S. crops if biopharming is allowed to proliferate. Exports account for 50 percent of the rice industry’s $1.18 billion in annual sales. Many skeptics Japanese consumers, like those in Western Europe, are still alarmed by past mad cow disease outbreaks mishandled by their governments, making them deeply skeptical of any changes to their food supply, including genetically engineered crops. Rice interests in California drove Ventria’s experimental work out of the state in 2004, after Japanese customers said they wouldn’t buy the rice if Ventria were allowed to set up shop. Anheuser-Busch Inc. and Riceland Foods Inc., the world’s largest rice miller, were among the corporate interests that pressured the company to abandon plans to set up a commercial-scale farm in Missouri’s rice belt last year. But Ventria was undeterred. The company, which has its headquarters in Sacramento, finally landed near Greenville, N.C. In March it received U.S. Department of Agriculture clearance to expand its operation there from 70 acres to 335 acres. Ventria is hoping to get regulatory clearance this year to market its diarrhea-fighting protein powder. There has been little resistance from corporate and farming interest in eastern North Carolina. But the company’s work has raised the hackles of environmentalists there. “The issue is the growing of pharmaceutical products in food crops grown outdoors,” said Hope Shand of the environmental nonprofit ETC Group in Carrboro, N.C. “The chance this will contaminate traditionally grown crops is great. This is a very risky business.” Deeter points out that there aren’t any commercial rice growers in North Carolina, although the USDA did allow Ventria to grow its controversial crop about a half-mile from a government “rice station,” where new strains are tested. The USDA has since moved that station to Beltsville, Md., though an agency spokeswoman said the relocation had nothing to do with Ventria. The company, meanwhile, has applied to the Food and Drug Administration to approve the protein powder as a “medical food” rather than a drug. That means Ventria wouldn’t have to conduct long and costly human tests. Instead, it submitted data from scientific experts attesting that the company’s powder is “generally regarded as safe.” Quick recoveries Earlier this month, a Peruvian scientist sponsored by Ventria presented data at the Pediatric Academics Societies meeting in San Francisco. It showed children hospitalized in Peru with serious diarrhea attacks recovered quicker – 3.67 days versus 5.21 days – if the dehydration solution they were fed contained the powder. Ventria’s chief executive said he hopes to have an approval this year and envisions a $100 million annual market in the United States. Deeter forecasts a $500 million market overseas, especially in developing countries where diarrhea is a top killer of children under the age of 5. The World Health Organization reports that nearly 2 million children succumb to diarrhea each year. But overcoming consumer skepticism and regulatory concerns about feeding babies with products derived from genetic engineering is a tall order.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals Human proteins Ventria’s rice produces two human proteins found in mother’s milk, saliva and tears, which help people hydrate and lessen the severity and duration of diarrhea attacks, a top killer of children in developing countries. But farmers, environmentalists and others fear that such medicinal crops will mix with conventional crops, making them unsafe to eat. The company says the chance of its genetically engineered rice ending up in the food supply is remote because the company grinds the rice and extracts the protein before shipping. What’s more, rice is “self-pollinating,” and it’s virtually impossible for genetically engineered rice to accidentally cross breed with conventional crops. “We use a contained system,” Ventria Chief Executive Scott Deeter said. SAN FRANCISCO – A tiny biosciences company is developing a promising drug to fight diarrhea, a scourge among babies in the developing world, but it has made an astonishing number of powerful enemies because it grows the experimental drug in rice genetically engineered with a human gene. Environmental groups, corporate food interests and thousands of farmers across the country have succeeded in chasing Ventria Bioscience’s rice farms out of two states. And critics continue to complain that Ventria is recklessly plowing ahead with a mostly untested technology that threatens the safety of conventional crops grown for food. “We just want them to go away,” said Bob Papanos of the U.S. Rice Producers Association. “This little company could cause major problems.” Ventria, with 16 employees, practices “biopharming,” the most contentious segment of agricultural biotechnology because its adherents essentially operate open-air drug factories by splicing human genes into crops to produce proteins that can be turned into medicines. last_img read more

It was a tremendous achievement for her and the club to win the Ulster title and we’re sure it’s only a matter of time until she clinches the national title too!Scor na nOg All Ireland fever hit the Club for the 2nd time this week when we were represented at the Scor na nOg National finals in Castlebar on Saturday by 8 of our extremely talented young people, Liam Coyle, Dylan Cuffe, Shannon Doherty, Emer Grant, Aoife Lennon, Naomi McLaughlin, Annie Powell & Adrian McMyler. They were competing in the Léiriú section with their piece called Iona. They performed it brilliantly to the delight of their lively supporters of family, friends and club folk. They also got great support from the Ulster contingent in the hall.As with all Scor competitions the standards are high but as this was the first year for the Léiriú section the standards were exceptionally high!

Chelsea in danger of losing star man for free, with AC and Inter Milan circling
