Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah celebrates after scoring his side’s second goal during the Champions League semifinal, first leg, soccer match between Liverpool and Roma at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, England, Tuesday, April 24, 2018. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira)LIVERPOOL, England — Mohamed Salah looked to the ground and held up his hands, almost apologizing for the sheer beauty of his goals.Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp laughed to himself in incredulity. Roma’s players, former teammates of Salah, were shellshocked. Anfield rocked in jubilation.ADVERTISEMENT In the latest virtuoso performance of his stunning first season at Liverpool, Salah produced two world-class finishes in the first half then set up further goals for Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to help his team into a scarcely believable five-goal lead in the Champions League semifinals. Then he handed his old club a lifeline — by leaving the pitch.After Salah was substituted in the 75th minute, Roma seized the initiative and scored two late goals to escape from Anfield with a 5-2 loss from the first leg on Tuesday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThe Italian side has already shown in this season’s competition that a three-goal deficit can be overcome. Just two weeks ago, Roma beat Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 3-0 in the Stadio Olimpico to advance from the quarterfinals on away goals.Liverpool has been warned ahead of next week’s second leg. Nets hire Prigioni as assistant coach, Splitter as pro scout The Egypt forward’s display was as exquisite as Roma’s defending was naive, with his two goals moving him on to 43 goals for the season in all competitions. Salah won English soccer’s Player of the Year award on Sunday and, at this rate, the Ballon D’Or could be his next year.His first goal came after Roma striker Edin Dzeko gave up possession cheaply in Liverpool’s half. The ball made its way to Salah, who cut inside from the right edge of the penalty area and curled a shot in off the crossbar, near to the post. It couldn’t have been placed any better.If that was a typical Salah finish from his first half of the season, his second goal was a replica of a couple of his more recent strikes. Firmino timed his through ball perfectly and Salah outpaced Juan Jesus before applying a dinked finish over goalkeeper Alisson, just like he did to eliminate Manchester City in the quarterfinals.“Outstanding, pretty much undefendable,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said of Salah, who he signed from Roma for 42 million euros (then $47 million) in June. “He is playing a season that is not normal.”Salah didn’t celebrate either of his goals, out of respect for his former teammates, but he made them suffer by setting up goals for the other members of Liverpool’s devastating forward line.Taking advantage of Roma’s recklessly high defensive line, Salah provided right-wing crosses for Mane and Firmino to score almost identical, close-range goals in the 56th and 61st minutes, respectively. Salah, Firmino and Mane have now scored 28 goals between them in this season’s Champions League — more than every other team that has taken part in the competition.When Firmino glanced home a header from James Milner’s corner in the 69th to make it 5-0, Liverpool had scored five goals in 33 minutes either side of halftime and Roma’s players were on the floor — literally in the case of its distressed goalkeeper, Alisson. The semifinal looked over with 110 minutes remaining.However, Klopp took off Salah in the 75th minute and Roma suddenly began to swarm all over the home side, outshooting them eight to one in the final 15 minutes.Two of them resulted in goals. Dzeko chested down a long pass to slot a low finish inside the near post in the 81st and when Milner handled a shot from Radja Nainggolan, Diego Perotti converted the penalty in the 89th.“If anyone wants to say it is my mistake we conceded the two goals because I change the striker, I have no problem with that,” Klopp said. “We did not prepare our passes and he (Salah) was running all the time and it would not have helped us if he gets an injury.” Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles03:42SEA Games: Rogen Ladon enters flyweight boxing semis03:13SEA Games 2019: PH’s Carlo Paalam boxing light flyweight semi final (HIGHLIGHTS)02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award “The tie is not over, we have already proven that against Barcelona,” Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco said. “Whoever doesn’t believe in a comeback should stay home. That applies to the fans in the stands as well.”There was a strange atmosphere after the final whistle of one of the most extraordinary Champions League matches. Liverpool had just become the first team in 23 years to score five goals in one leg of a semifinal, yet its players left the field thinking it was an opportunity lost.Roma’s fans, meanwhile, sang loudly and proudly long after the final whistle. They had been given unlikely hope.“We have to work again in Rome now, that is no problem,” Klopp said. “There would have been work if we had won 5-0.”It is still in Liverpool’s hands, though.

WHITTIER – While the owners of Rome Fine Dining in Uptown Whittier are operating the business as an 18-and-over nightclub, the city has quietly tried to pay Rome’s owners to pack up and leave town, according to club co-owner Ralph Verdugo. “They just want us out of here,” Verdugo said. Verdugo could not remember exactly what the city offered during a settlement meeting in November, but he said it was not enough to convince him to leave the city. “It’s not about finding other spaces to operate, it’s the moral, the principal,” he said. “I’m being called irresponsible, a liar. And I’m not. If we don’t stand up to them, who will?” Kimberly Hall Barlow, a deputy city attorney for Whittier, confirmed that the city had met with Rome’s owners to discuss a possible settlement in the restaurant’s lawsuit against the city. But she said a dollar amount and specifics were never agreed upon. The city in October revoked the club’s permission to serve alcoholic drinks. Since then, Rome has operated as an 18-and-over entertainment venue, hosting music acts and serving meals and drinks – but not serving alcohol, Verdugo said. “It’s tough doing business like this,” Verdugo said. “The kids are nice, but they don’t have a lot of money. And they don’t really tip the help. It’s getting hard to keep employees.” Verdugo is using profits from another club his company owns in Los Angeles to subsidize Rome, he said. The council’s decision to stop the serving of alcohol at Rome was the latest volley in a two-year legal fight that began after the club, formerly Ibiza Steak and Lounge, in 2003 hosted illegal male G-string dance reviews. Verdugo was convicted of misdemeanor violations of city laws, and soon afterward the city raised claims that Verdugo routinely failed to obey city rules and did not control crowds. The city slapped Verdugo with about 60 operating conditions. In turn, Rome sued the city, hiring high-profile litigator Roger Jon Diamond, who has won decisions against Pico Rivera, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. A Los Angeles District Superior Court judge will probably schedule a trial date on Jan. 30, Diamond said. He believes the city has made several procedural errors in its dealings with Rome. Specifically, Diamond said the attorney who made the case against Rome, Gregory P. Palmer, works for the same firm that advises the city on how to legally proceed. “It’s a conflict,” Diamond said of the city’s law firm, Jones & Mayer. “Essentially, the judge and the prosecutor work for the same law firm. How can an attorney give the city unbiased advice when he shares an office with the guy making the case against my client?” He and Verdugo also argued that many of the claims against the club, such as a recent report of a stabbing, were inaccurate. “I think we established that someone threw a bottle and that there was no riot or big fight or anything like that,” Diamond said. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 2703
Donegal Minister Joe McHugh TD spoke at the Fine Gael National Conference in Cavan yesterday about the importance of protecting the Good Friday Agreement post-Brexit.He says that given Ireland’s unique set of circumstances, the Common Travel Area must not be threatened by Brexit.“One of the definitions and examples for a ‘border’ given by the Oxford English dictionary is as follows – ‘The boundary and adjoining districts between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland’,” he said. “We all accept on this island now that the boundary exists.“But the border before our fragile peace process came about was something very different from a ‘boundary’.“Because along that boundary during the so-called Troubles there existed checkpoints, road blocks, concrete bollards and in some cases craters. Everything was done to prevent easy travel across the boundary.“And when the mass killings stopped on our island and a peace agreement was reached more than 300 crossings between north and south were opened up and border communities began to breathe again. “Now thanks to the peace process the common travel area – first introduced in 1922 – allows for 110 million border crossings each year.“Donegal accounted for the largest number of cross-Border commuters, with 5,600 commuters each day, 76pc of whom travelled to Derry.“Data published in a joint report by Derry City and Strabane District Council and Donegal County Council show that there are more than 326,000 journeys made per week across the Border crossings at Derry/Bridgend, Muff village to Derry and Strabane and Lifford.“So how did this all come about? In May 1998 the people of this country – north and south – ratified the Good Friday Agreement. Let me remind you of the outcome of our peace deal – 94.4 per cent of people in the Republic and 71.1 per cent of people in Northern Ireland voted YES to peace. In the years that followed, dioceses, parishes, farms, families and businesses became whole again.“Crossing the border no longer involved a two hour wait at Bridgend or Aughnacloy. Just going to Dublin from Donegal became a whole lot easier. It was liberating. In recent years people from Leinster and Munster have found just how great it is to come to Donegal on holiday.” Minister McHugh then explains how any changes to the border could lead to friction and could impact the thousands of people that cross the border each day for work.“Now another vote – this time by the people of Britain – has effectively said that the ideals and commitments of the Good Friday Agreement should play second fiddle to Brexit.“We cannot allow this to happen. I respect the UK vote on Brexit. That is democracy. But what about the democratic will of the people of this island, north and south who voted for a frictionless border, a boundary without checkpoints, delays and all the hassle that came with it?“In Strabane, Co Tyrone – 500 metres from Lifford – sportswear company O’Neills employs hundreds of people from Donegal. “In Letterkenny, Co Donegal – finance company Pramerica – employs hundreds of people from the North. There are dozens of other examples where real free movement of people and goods has changed the way we live along the border, connecting people in ways that weren’t even imagined before Partition.“I know my colleague Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney is working tirelessly at EU level to ensure what we have, we hold.“Brexit cannot be allowed to get one over on the Good Friday Agreement. We cannot allow anyone to take us back to the dark days of death and destruction.“There’s a saying in Irish – and many other languages around the world – that we’re better together.“Over the past 20 years since the foundation of the peace process we have found that this island and our neighbours have worked incredibly well together.“It’s our duty in this jurisdiction to make sure that continues.”TD on Brexit: “We cannot go back to the dark days of death and destruction” was last modified: November 14th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:Brexitdonegalgood friday agreementjoe mc hughNOrthern Ireland
Donegal based David Moen has dedicated a plaque to the Irishman who was Liverpool’s first ever manager, but if Liverpool manage to clinch victory on Saturday night he may need to dedicate one to Jurgen Klopp as well. The die hard Liverpool fan will this week be using cars, coaches and planes to make the 3,200km trek from Donegal to Kiev for the Champions League final.David and fellow Liverpool fan Kevin Neely will leave Letterkenny on Friday morning. They will then fly from Dublin airport to Warsaw via Frankfurt. 14 hours after departing Warsaw on a coach they will finally reach their destination on the morning of the big game.Moen, who was born in Monaghan decided to unveil the plaque of John McKenna in his home town of Glaslough as a sign of the journey the club have made.McKenna took over as Liverpool manager in 1892 and guided the club into the English First Division just four years after they formed. In his thirty years at the club Liverpool won three First Division titles with McKenna taking up a number of different roles.McKenna himself was a Monaghan man which is something that no doubt encouraged David Moen to dedicate the plaque to him. Moen is set to leave Kiev just hours after the final whistle blows. He expects to return to Letterkenny in the early hours of Monday morning after what will be another enduring trip for him.However if Liverpool are to claim victory against Real Madrid it will surely be a much easier journey home for Moen.Liverpool fan not going to chicken out of trip to Kiev now was last modified: May 23rd, 2018 by Chris CannonShare 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:Champions League FinalDavid MoenJohn McKennaLiverpool
Imagining young rings forming recently has been an embarrassment since Voyager days. A new paper by ringmaster Larry Esposito (U of Colorado) found a way to stretch them out into billions of years. The Cassini press release describes clumpy material dividing and re-forming endlessly. Finding more mass in the B-ring also helped explain the brightness of the rings for longer times: there’s more ice to dilute the incoming pollution.“We have discovered that the rings probably were not created just yesterday in cosmic time, and in this scenario, it is not just luck that we are seeing planetary rings now,” said Esposito. “They probably were always around but continually changing, and they will be around for many billions of years.”It’s doubtful the Cassini crew will wait that long to find out. This story was picked up by PhysOrg, the BBC News, National Geographic and Space.com. On December 17, Astronomy Picture of the Day reported the claim alongside a dazzling picture of the rings.What did Esposito do, invent a perpetual motion machine? What did he do with gas drag, sputtering, micrometeoroid impacts, collisional spreading and sunlight pressure? These factors are not going to care whether fluffy clumps of ice can recycle themselves. Apparently the ringmaster is also a magician; he made these problems just disappear. When the paper comes out maybe we can find the secret pockets. For most viewers, distraction is usually an effective method. It’s not that this new model lacks evidential support; there does appear to be clumpiness, and mass estimates have been revised upward by Cassini. But it only accounts for more time for the B-ring, not the other rings which are more tenuous and even younger – including the rings of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. So the problem did not go away with this announcement, despite the celebrating by the science news yahoos who never heard an old age they didn’t like. What’s driving this urge for age? Simple: Charlie needs the time. That sets the paradigm throughout science. The ringmasters have been embarrassed for 23 years since Voyager forced them to consider the rings might be young. When a phenomenon doesn’t cooperate, it must be forced into conformity; second law of thermodynamics be damned.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… When you think about autonomous vehicles, a modified Prius or Smart Car might come to mind. Perhaps a Tesla Model 3 or even a fancy Rolls-Royce that costs more than most people spend on their house. Autonomous vehicles come across as safe, easy-going, and nothing to be intimidated by.Well, Ukraine’s KrAZ Spartan will change that perception – real quick.This giant armored vehicle is anything but soft and pleasant. It’s an intimidating presence both on the road and in the battlefield. No human drivers required.The KrAZ Spartan, which is based off a heavily-modified truck with massive amounts of armor, is capable of moving troops and supplies without any human assistance. Two of these vehicles, nicknamed “Fiona” and “Shrek” are already tearing up the obstacle course in a recent demonstration.We don’t have all of the details about this vehicle, and most of the press around it has thus far been written in Ukrainian. We do know that this is just one of many autonomous vehicle projects being run by military organizations around the world.Autonomous vehicles save lives in the fieldWhy would there be a need for such a thing? Isn’t autonomous vehicle technologies made for convenience and safety rather than combat situations?The answer to this is quite simple.A fully self-driving vehicle like this can also transport supplies between units without putting lives at risk. No one would need to be on board at all.We live in a world with roadside bombs and smart missiles that target humvees and other military vehicles. Despite their armored exterior, they remain a prime target in battle. This makes having one that can drive itself especially useful for testing new roads ahead of the rest of the convoy.You may also find yourself in a situation where you are unable to operate a vehicle manually. Transporting wounded troops from the battlefield would be another great use for something like this if the situation calls for it.US DoD is testing its own self-driving supportThe United States has been testing autonomous military vehicles for some time. Robots and drones have been in the battlefield for years. For the most part, these devices are believed by many citizens without top secret clearance to be remote controlled rather than fully autonomous.Bomb squads, for example, have been utilizing robots to do things like search for and disable explosives for over a decade. These tools are actively saving American lives today.The idea of taking this autonomous vehicle technology which is finding its way into the consumer sector and applying it in military scenarios is just common sense.More recently the military has been looking into self-driving tanks and autonomous trucks. These vehicles, in addition to advances in the area of artificial intelligence, are creating a new generation of military force. One that doesn’t rely so heavily on troops deployed on the ground, but of intelligent machines.After all is said and done, at least the Terminators will have some great new modes of transportation to use once Skynet becomes self-aware.
