‘Palacios is a Real Madrid-style player’

first_imgExequiel Palacios is a “Real Madrid-style player” according to River Plate team-mate Leonardo Ponzio.The midfielder is a long-time target of Madrid, and this week River’s president Rodolfo D’Onofrio confirmed that the European champions have enquired about bringing the Argentina international to the Santiago Bernabeu.Madrid had hoped to bring the player in as early as January, but Palacios’s agent Renato Corsi has said it is his client’s preference to remain in Argentina with River until at least the summer.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Corsi also suggested that Real will have to pay significantly more than the €15 million (£13.5m/$17m) release clause in Palacios’s contract in order to land their man.But River captain Ponzio, who played alongside Palacios at the Bernabeu as the club won their rearranged Copa Libertadores final second leg against Boca Juniors last Sunday, says his team-mate has the attributes to be a hit at Madrid.“He has been with us for almost two and a half years,” Ponzio told AS. “He has become a player in River, in Argentine soccer.“Real Madrid? I believe what ability he has. Of course, you cannot ask him to be the same as Luka Modric. He is 20 years old. He goes to another continent, to another kind of football.“But conditions have to grow. He is very of the palate of Real Madrid. Technically he is good, he has a good footing, individually he is good. But he must keep his head. He has to be calm because he is going to make the jump at any moment.”River will begin their brief Club World Cup campaign in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, taking on Al-Ain from the host country for a place in the final on December 22.If they are successful it is likely they will face Madrid for the world crown, with Santiago Solari’s side facing AFC champions Kashima Antlers on Wednesday.Palacios’s agent Corsi told AS this week: “After the Club World Cup, then we will start to talk about numbers. It is possible that we will agree a deal now and he will leave in June.“Then he can start from zero in pre-season, whereas if he goes now it will be with the season already halfway through.”last_img read more

FA Cup: Wolves loss a big step backwards for Manchester United, says Solskjaer

first_imgManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described his side’s 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday as the worst performance of his four months in charge.Wolves produced a hugely impressive display in both halves at a rocking Molineux, reaching the last four of the FA Cup for the first time since 1998 with second-half strikes from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.Marcus Rashford pulled a goal back deep in added time but there was barely a minute left for United to find an equaliser and they fell to a second consecutive defeat after losing 2-0 at Arsenal in the Premier League.”Quite a lot was missing today, it was the poorest performance we’ve had, it was a big step backwards,” Solskjaer told a news conference.”We never had the urgency and quality on the ball even though without the ball in the first half we did ok.”We felt too comfy in possession, we never managed to put their keeper or defenders under pressure. We had a couple of balls in behind for Rashford but not enough quality.”There was little sign of the fighting spirit United had shown in their miraculous 3-1 win over Paris St Germain in the Champions League or the attacking flair of most of their performances since the former striker succeeded Jose Mourinho in December.But Solskjaer dismissed suggestions United had lost momentum, praising Wolves, who picked up another prize scalp in a memorable season in which they have also dumped Liverpool out of the FA Cup and beat Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in the Premier League.advertisement”I think it’s something natural, you cannot perform to the top of your level every single time,” he said.”It’s still against a good team, they’ve done really well against top teams, don’t take anything away from them even though we under-performed, so I don’t think that’s part of it at all.”We have got to put the result behind us: SolskjaerUnited have two weeks off for the international break before resuming their push for a top-four finish with a home game against Watford and they also have a Champions League quarter-final with Barcelona to look forward to.”You can’t sit down and sulk too long, we’re disappointed, everybody is disappointed but we’ve got to look forward and put the result today behind us,” Solskjaer added.”We know we’ve played well against Arsenal last week and didn’t get what we deserved, but today we got what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game.”Also Read | ISL 2018-19 final: Don’t see ourselves as favourites, says Bengaluru FC coach CuadratAlso Read | FIFA votes for new 24-team Club World Cup from 2021, European clubs confirm boycottAlso See:last_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player His men surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 4-3 then, with Eddie Howe saying: “We have good memories of both Liverpool games last year. The one here will live long in the memory, with how we came back.”The Merseysiders have only been beaten in one of their last 22 league matches against teams outside the ‘big six’.LIVERPOOL INJURIESJoel Matip [adductor], Alberto Moreno [ankle] and Nathaniel Clyne [back] remain unavailable for selection.Daniel Sturridge has been nursing a tight hamstring and is a doubt, while Adam Lallana should be in the matchday squad.Daniel Sturridge LiverpoolSimon Mignolet has shaken off a knock, but there are few minor concerns ahead of the weekend.“Joel is on a good way, running outside. [He is] not available for the weekend, of course. The same for Clyney,” Klopp revealed at Melwood.“Daniel, we have to wait [to see] how he improved since yesterday. [We have] a few little things, with Joe [Gomez], knocks from the game. Joe had a little bit before, that’s why we left him out. But he should be OK.“Millie [James Milner] and Robbo [Andy Robertson], a few knocks from the game, should be OK. Adam is back in full and normal training; if nothing changed since yesterday then he will be ready for the squad at least.“[Moreno] has no chance for Sunday. I saw him yesterday on the bike – good but not good enough. And Simon [Mignolet] is OK again.”LIVERPOOL SUSPENSIONS Emre Can serves a one-ban match for the totting up of yellow cards, while Dejan Lovren is a booking away from the same fate. Harry Arter and Steve Cook are on four cautions for the hosts.LIVERPOOL POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UPKlopp has made 65 changes to his starting XI so far this season in the league; 23 more than any other team in the competition.It is also 11 more than he oversaw in the entirety of 2016-17 and the rotation will continue. With Can suspended, Jordan Henderson should return to the base of midfield, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could refresh the centre of the pitch or one of the forward positions. Liverpool Possible XI v BournemouthMohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have started two in a row, and one or both may be in line for a rest on Sunday. Mignolet will return in goal, while Joe Gomez could swap in for Trent Alexander-Arnold. Milner is an option on the opposite flank if Robertson needs to be kept fresh.BOURNEMOUTH TEAM NEWSBournemouth were unlucky to have been defeated 1-0 by Manchester United in their last outing, having registered five more shots on target at Old Trafford than the hosts.David de Gea turned in another stellar display, with Howe pleased with how his charges executed the gameplan. “We had two distinct ways we wanted to play,” he explained. “One was to be compact and disciplined without the ball.”If you’re too loose against the top teams, they hurt you so I thought we were good in that area. I was pleased with the out lines and our strikers helping out the other units of the team. With the ball, we wanted to be as brave as we could and try to dominate possession.”Eddie Howe BournemouthBournemouth will attempt to strike the same balance against Liverpool, but with a better result. Howe has pointed out that while Klopp’s starting XI will be unpredictable, it will still be packed with quality.”The personnel may be different, but the quality doesn’t change much, they have quality to come in in every position. We know what sort of team we’re up against and the challenge is to stop them,” he said.”Salah has been excellent this season, but it’s not just him, that’s the problem when you play these teams. We need to make sure our structure is good, our plan is good and also look at how we can take them on and focus on our strengths.”Tyrone Mings has seen a specialist following a setback in his recovery from a back injury and Howe will consider rotation on Sunday.”We have a tough run of fixtures and we’re still in the Carabao Cup, so the key is we have to make sure everyone can play at their best levels,” the Cherries boss said.”I want the players to be fresh enough to perform, I will speak to the players concerned and see how they feel.”TV COVERAGE & KICK-OFF TIME Kick off is at 16:30 BST (9am CST) and will be televised live in the UK on Sky Sports.In the USA, the Premier League can be watched live and on-demand with fuboTV (7-day free trial).BEST OPTA MATCH FACTS Bournemouth have beaten Liverpool just once in all competitions (P11 W1 D3 L7), a 4-3 victory in this exact fixture last season.

Supporting DataDriven Meetings in Business

Thanks to technology, meeting environments are no longer confined to conference or huddle rooms. Ad hoc exchanges can take place in hallways, around desks, and during commutes. Meeting participants must be able to quickly access and share content via smartphones, tablets, and remote displays from any location in order to highlight data. Now that content sharing is simpler, meetings can start up faster. At the same time, we’ve seen a corresponding growth in the use of huddle rooms for content sharing over other types of meeting spaces. According to Frost & Sullivan, there are now more than 33 million huddle rooms in use worldwide. See All in Meetings » Smart Meetings: It’s Time to Rethink How We Meet Dave Mailer April 24, 2019 It has never been more important to facilitate meetings than it is now, with various drivers coming together in what might be considered a perfect storm. Wireless content sharing and collaboration tools are great options to support data-centric meetings in huddle and transition spaces. Because these tools are easy to set up and can handle multiple participants sharing content simultaneously, they encourage successful collaboration. According to data collected from our AI engines that monitor meeting room behavior and performance, meetings in huddle spaces are 35% shorter than those in conference rooms. Additionally, the findings show that 33% more content sharing takes place in these smaller meetings than in larger ones. While it’s tempting to blame bad meetings on boring presentations or poorly designed slides, the real culprit could be the technology in use. Legacy AV technology forces us to adopt meeting styles that hinder our ability to operate at our highest level. The “single speaker with a video cable” meeting standard is inefficient and wasteful of people’s time and corporate resources. 6 Trends to Watch Out for in Online Meetings Dave Michels September 23, 2019 As online meetings become ubiquitous, conferencing providers will need to focus on innovation, price point, and other factors to succeed in the future. Tips to Support Ad Hoc and Huddle Room Meeting CultureSet a Goal — Since ad hoc meetings don’t usually lend themselves to formal agendas, the organizers of these impromptu meetings should set an objective to keep all parties focused on the intended outcome.Keep the Meeting Short — Meetings tend to last for as long as they’re scheduled. Time-boxing meetings into 15-minute increments can amplify the creativity and focus of participants.Be Flexible — Since ad hoc meetings take place in just about any workspace, organizations should support collaboration and content-sharing technology in a variety of spaces above and beyond conference rooms.Keep it Small — Small teams prevent social loafing, in which individual contributions are seen as less valuable since a number of people share the same task, according to research. Limiting the number of participants facilitates better analysis and collaboration in meeting spaces.Enterprises today shouldn’t rely on meeting room solutions that came out of telephony. Instead, they should rethink how conference calls, video conferences, and ad hoc meetings can take place in the context of content sharing and data-driven meeting experiences.Tags:News & ViewscollaborationContent Sharinghuddle roomsMeeting CultureMeetingsAnalyticsBest PracticesConferencingVendor Perspective Articles You Might Like ad hoc meeting.jpg By making full use of the devices we bring to meetings — to share, control, and interact with content — we deliver the power of content sharing to all parties, on demand, and without the need to learn specific room systems or plug-in cables. Group members are left free to highlight important data in real time. Successful, data-driven meetings must have the right technology infrastructure to support this type of wireless collaboration. GoToMeeting Prepares ‘UCC Next Step,’ Revamps Experience Ryan Daily October 01, 2019 As video conferencing becomes ever more commonplace, platforms like GoToMeeting are releasing revamped experiences for diverse workforces and enterprises. Poly Says Hello at Enterprise Connect Zeus Kerravala March 19, 2019 The newly rebranded Plantronics-Polycom comes bearing new products and partnerships, including with AWS, Microsoft, and Google Voice. Designing Data-Driven Meeting EnvironmentsLegacy hardware AV solutions lack the necessary flexibility to shape the spaces that today’s meetings require. Hardware tends to be designed for specific capabilities and lacks broad, platform-like features. Content-sharing for productive meetings is so important that it’s caused enterprises to rethink their entire display infrastructure. Can GoToMeeting Get its Mojo Back? Zeus Kerravala October 03, 2019 With a new GoToMeeting look and feel and updated functionalities across the meeting lifecycle, LogMeIn is finally getting meetings. Is it enough? Meetings today often revolve around data and data analysis. When we gather around a big screen in a conference room, it’s usually to evaluate and discuss topics that are supported by content. There’s a reason we bring terabytes of images, videos, and live applications to meetings. Content builds authority, creates trust among team members, supports storytelling, and accelerates groups toward decisions. The level of collaboration in live, often ad hoc meetings requires the ability to seamlessly share what each participant is working on with everyone else — directly from each person’s device. If sharing is difficult, it will disrupt the flow of the discussion and collaboration, and teams risk falling back into presentation mode. The Changing Taxonomy of MeetingsThe days of scheduling the hourlong meeting are numbered. For decades, the hourlong time block was the standard in meeting length, in part because it was an easy way to divide the day. But is also accounted for seven to 10 minutes for figuring how to set up a meeting using complicated room technology, then the same amount of time to tear one down. Productive meeting time typically lasted for 40 minutes or more. Log in or register to post comments read more

Mens tennis meets untimely end in NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships

Four members of the Ohio State men’s tennis team could not make it past the NCAA Singles and Doubles championships quarterfinals this past week. Competing for the Buckeyes at Stanford’s Taube Tennis Center were senior Matt Allare, junior Chase Buchanan, redshirt freshman Peter Kobelt and freshman Blaz Rola. Allare, Buchanan and Rola all competed in both the singles and doubles tournaments, while Kobelt competed solely in doubles. The tournament began with singles action on Wednesday following the conclusion of the team championships on Tuesday. Rola, the No. 5 seed in the tournament and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Player to Watch, was the only Buckeye to advance past the first round of singles. In his first match, Rola beat Stanford’s Ryan Thacher 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the second where he beat Pepperdine’s Finn Tearney 7-5, 6-2. Rola advanced to the third round where he defeated Michigan’s Evan King 6-3, 6-0 before falling in the quarterfinals 6-3, 6-3 to Southern California’s No. 1-seeded Steve Johnson. “It’s my first time at NCAAs. I’m pretty excited about it,” Rola said after the second round of the NCAA team championship. “There is a lot more at stake here.” Both Allare and Buchanan fell in the first round of singles. Allare lost to Oklahoma’s Costin Paval 6-3, 7-5 and Buchanan fell to Southern California’s Ray Sarmiento 3-6, 7-6, 6-3. Doubles action began on Thursday when OSU doubles pairs Allare and Kobelt, and Buchanan and Rola represented the Buckeyes in the tournament. Allare and Kobelt fell in the first round to Tennessee’s Boris Conkic and John-Patrick Smith 7-6, 6-2. Buchanan and Rola advanced to the second after winning their match 6-2, 7-5 against Southern California’s Johnson and Sarmiento. “We have to bring everything we have to the table and just play our best,” Buchanan said after the fourth round of the team tournament. After advancing to the second, the duo fell to Louisville’s Austen Childs and Viktor Maksimcuk 7-6, 6-1. The Buckeyes season may now be officially over, but the team will get back to practicing for next season in mid-June, said coach Ty Tucker. read more

Helen Mirren admits LOreal moisturiser probably does f all

first_imgShe is the face of L’Oreal’s ‘Age Perfect’ moisturiser range, and was signed as a brand spokeswoman in 2014 after their consumer research found she was perceived as “genuine, intelligent and glamorous, with looks that seem only to improve with the passing of time”. Helen Mirren attends the Closing Ceremony of the 57th Monte Carlo TV Festival on June 20 “As a 30-year-old, I used to look at that and think, what the f— are you talking about? It was ridiculous. P—– me off majorly. Advertisers are only just coming out of that, and it’s taken them a long time.”Speaking at the Cannes event, Dame Helen also reflected on her career.“I often feel I’ve lost my way in my aspiration to be an artist,” she said in a speech reported by Campaign magazine. Fans who dream of seeing Dame Helen as a female James Bond will be disappointed. “I’m too old,” she said.“In my youth, that would have been great, of course. But that time was different; we could never even have imagined a woman playing that role.”A L’Oreal spokesman was not available for comment.

But, I may add, blissfully and quite happily.” “Of course, it’s wonderful to have success, and the thing I love most about it is economic freedom. Coming from a background where there was no money – and if you didn’t work, there was nothing to live on – to have bought my own house and to have never been in debt or on welfare is something I feel proud of.“But there’s a part of me that thinks I should have been a struggling artist.”center_img I’m an eternal optimist – I know that when I put my moisturiser on it probably does f— allHelen Mirren She describes herself as a long-time fan of the French brand, and said: “It used to drive me crazy that the ads promoting skin products were using pictures of 15- and 16-year-old girls. It could go down as her Gerald Ratner moment. Dame Helen Mirren, face of the skincare brand L’Oreal, has confided that using moisturiser “probably does f— all”.The Oscar-winning actress made her comments while sitting on a L’Oreal panel in the South of France, where she was appearing in her capacity as brand ambassador.“I’m not setting standards for others. All I can do is be who I am. I’ve always loved make-up,” she said.“I’m an eternal optimist – I know that when I put my moisturiser on it probably does f— all, but it just makes me feel better. I’ve always said to L’Oreal as well that I will only do what makes me feel better.” The reaction of L’Oreal executives at the event is not recorded.Her remarks drew comparison with the infamous 1991 after-dinner speech by Gerald Ratner, who sent his eponymous jewellery firm into a spiral of decline when he said of its stock: “People say, ‘How can you sell this for such a low price?’ I say, ‘Because it’s total crap.’”Dame Helen, 72, is the oldest of the French brand’s celebrity ambassadors and has insisted that the advertisements featuring her are not digitally retouched to erase wrinkles.

EtatsUnis du Botox utilisé contre les migraines

first_imgEtats-Unis : du Botox utilisé contre les migrainesÉtats-Unis – Le Botox peut désormais être utilisé comme traitement des migraines chroniques outre-Atlantique, après que l’Agence américaine des médicaments (FDA) a donné son accord.Le Botox était jusqu’à aujourd’hui connu comme traitement esthétique, utilisé afin de combler les rides de celles et ceux qui souhaitent paraître plus jeunes. Aujourd’hui, la FDA a autorisé l’utilisation du produit dans le traitement des migraines chroniques, via des injections opérées autour de la tête et du cou, à renouveler toutes les douze semaines explique l’AFP.La toxine botulinique doit être utilisée avec précaution car, mal injectée, elle peut avoir pour conséquence une paralysie. Pour autant, le Dr Russel Katz est confiant concernant l’utilisation du produit : “La migraine chronique est l’une des formes de maux de tête la plus handicapante. Les patients victimes de ce type de migraine en souffrent plus de quatorze jours par mois, ce qui perturbe fortement la vie familiale, professionnelle et sociale. Il est donc important de disposer d’une variété de traitements”.Le 18 octobre 2010 à 13:22 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Does CRISPR Gene Editing Really Cause Cancer

first_imgStay on target CRISPR-Modified Babies Cursed With Short LifespanAntidote to Deadly Box Jellyfish Venom Discovered Genome-editing system CRISPR, heralded for its advancements in curing disease, is being accused of causing it.Two studies published this week warn that cells altered by CRISPR-Cas9 can trigger cancer.According to research conducted by Sweden’s Karolinska Institute and the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, cells whose genomes have been CRISPR’d are more likely to grow into tumors.The news of these results, which the CEO of CRISPR Therapeutics called “plausible,” has crashed stocks in companies trying to bring this technology mainstream.But, as with most panic-inducing medical developments, CRISPR’s potentially cancerous effects should be taken with a grain of salt.“The reactions have been exaggerated,” Jussi Taipale, a professor the Karolinska Institute and an author of one of the two papers published Monday, told The New York Times.The findings simply highlight a need for more analysis of this promising tool; they shouldn’t spell its doom.“This is not something that should stop research on CRISPR therapies,” he continued. “I think it’s almost the other way—we should put more effort into such things.”Both research teams separately came to the same conclusion: The p53 gene, which functions as a tumor suppressor, also appears to interrupt the CRISPR process. In each case, shutting down the p53 gene in the examined cells allowed the program to work more effectively.But, removing those anticancer defenses could allow mutations to sneak into human DNA, possibly leading to disease.John Doench, associate director of the genetic perturbation platform at MIT’s Broad Institute, isn’t having it.After reading the two studies, he told Business Insider that most of the facts outlines in the papers are “fairly well-known” to those studying gene editing.“I’m honestly trying to figure out why this has generated such a response and I really can’t,” he said. “Everything I can see is just related to the stocks and finances and not in any way related to the science.”Let this be a lesson to anyone looking for future funding: Never put the words “cause” and “cancer” in the same sentence.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Witness to 2012 slaying missing again

first_imgThe only eyewitness to the killing of Matthew M. Clark in October 2012 in Vancouver has gone missing again.The disappearance of Shandi R. Danielson, 21, could hinder the prosecution of murder suspects Kirk M. Hernandez Sr. and Darrell C. Fry. Hernandez, 42, and Fry, 33, are accused of fatally shooting Clark on Oct. 1, 2012, at Clark’s home at 9610 N.E. 25th Ave. The men allegedly were trying to settle a debt over firearms stolen in a residential burglary.Superior Court Judge Scott Collier held Danielson for two months in the Clark County Jail without charge because of concerns she wouldn’t respond to subpoenas in the murder case. State law allows judges to hold a material witness in jail if there’s evidence that the court won’t be able to “secure the presence of the witness by subpoena.”Collier planned to hold her until attorneys could complete her depositions in the cases against both men. Because Hernandez and Fry will have separate trials on Oct. 21 and Nov. 4, respectively, separate depositions are needed.Danielson’s deposition for the Fry case was completed by Deputy Prosecutor Anna Klein and Fry’s attorney, Bob Yoseph.But two months after she was arrested, the deposition for the Hernandez case still hadn’t taken place because of scheduling conflicts.Collier said he decided to release Danielson on May 14 because he was concerned about keeping her in jail for such a long period without charge and because she had appeared to be increasingly cooperative in court. Her attorney, Neil Anderson, also had repeatedly requested her release over the two-month period.As a condition of her release, Collier required her to check in daily with the court’s supervised release program. She fulfilled that requirement for only three days, according to Klein.last_img read more
