Higginbotham discusses Girouds importance to Chelsea and Hazard

first_imgFormer Sunderland and Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham insists Olivier Giroud’s importance to Chelsea and star player Eden Hazard should not be underestimated.The former Arsenal striker who joined the Blues in January this year, has started Chelsea’s last four Premier League games and although he has yet to find the net, Hazard has scored five times during that period.Hazard hailed Giroud “as the best target man in the world” after they combined to help Chelsea to a relatively comfortable 4-1 win over Cardiff City in September.The France international striker made two of Hazard’s three goals at Stamford Bridge in that game and has provided two more goals for the Belgian captain since, and his presence as the focal point in attack has helped Chelsea to joint-top of the Premier League after eight games.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“He suits Hazard, Pedro and Willian,” he told Sky Sports’ The Debate.“He drags centre-backs out which makes space for others – he’s so difficult to mark.”“That’s what separates him and Alvaro Morata, who is a centre-forward that likes to stretch the game but he doesn’t create space. Giroud has different characteristics to Diego Costa but their style of play is very similar. They both like to drop deep. It’s no surprise to see that Hazard had a fruitful season when playing with Costa – he was getting into dangerous areas all the time and Giroud is providing the same option.”last_img read more

Baha BATE Borisov have learnt their lessons from Arsenal defeat

first_imgBATE Borisov boss Alyaksey Baha feels that the lessons learnt from last season’s 6-0 defeat by Arsenal will serve them well ahead of their Europa League game at ChelseaThe Belarusian champions were handed a humbling defeat by Arsenal in their last visit to London a year ago and hope that the experience will leave them better prepared for their latest trip to the English capital.Aside from that, Baha is taking encouragement Videoton’s performance against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.The Hungarians lost 1-0 in their Group L clash with Chelsea on the night, but Baha thinks they were unfortunate to have lost the game.“We have followed all the games Chelsea have played,” Baha told reporters on the club website.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Videoton played well, had plenty of chances and could have got a different result. They are an example for us.“We analyse the games (against Arsenal) so we learnt from our mistakes. Now, a year later we are here in England, in London, playing against a top club, and we hope for a better result this time.”Baha has also been boosted by the news that Eden Hazard will not be playing tonight.Although he will be without forward Mikhail Gordeichuk and defender Nemanja Milunovic due to injury.BATE have won the Belarusian Premier League for the last 12 years in succession.last_img read more

BusinessWeek Tell Us What to Write

first_imgMagazines often get a bad rap when it comes to integrating Web 2.0 ideas into their daily editorial routines, but most publishers have embraced “crowdsourcing” as a research tool. It’s become common for editors to ask their readers for help while researching stories (Wired’s editors, for instance, often blog about stories they are writing).BusinessWeek is taking that tact a mini-step further, asking online readers to submit story ideas they’d like to see reported out. BW editors say they will sort through the suggestions and assign at least one idea a week to its writers. So writes John Byrne:As Editor-in-Chief of BusinessWeek.com, I’ll respond to your suggestions just as I do to my own reporters. “Tom, that’s a brilliant and original idea with importance significance to our readers.” Or, “Frank, I’ve read that story a hundred times. What can you possibly add that’s new?” Whether it’s for research or full-on story pitches, this is something that editors should do more often. Not only is it an easy way to interact directly with readers, it can be a valuable source of information that can help in crafting stories—both now and in the future.In fact, FOLIO: took a step in that direction today. On FOLIO:’s professional networking site MediaPRO, I asked for feedback on a story I’m working on. I’m hoping members—from consumer to b-to-b—will share their feedback and even some story ideas.Take a look and leave us a message!last_img read more

Bradley Cooper broke with Irina Shayk for this shocking reason

first_imgBradley Cooper (R) and his partner Russian model Irina ShaykGetty imagesBradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have officially split after four years of dating. Things were not going too good between them for a long time and there were debunked reports in the past that Cooper’s closeness with Lady Gaga might have accelerated the process.As per a latest report by People, the 44-year-old Cooper has officially split with his 33-year-old girlfriend Shayk. The couple has decided to end their relationship and is currently working out as to how they both are going to share the custody of their two years old daughter Lea De Seine.As of now, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s representatives have not released any official statement about the split. But the separation has come as a shock for everyone who was rooting for them to get married by the year-end.As earlier reported, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk were having some difficulties in their relationship. An alleged insider even stated that their four-year-long relationship is hanging by a thread.Many are assuming that the reason behind Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk is reportedly Lady Gaga. However, as we have mentioned a couple of times in the past, nothing is going on between Gaga and Cooper. These two acted in a movie together, which made millions to think that they both might get together in real life as well. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star is BornLady Gaga (@ladygaga/Instagram)Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s intimate performance of “Shallow” from their Academy Award-nominee movie at the 91st Oscars was the talk of the town for several weeks. The duo performed magically on the stage and there were several moments where onlookers speculated that these two will stop singing and will start kissing each other. But as Lady Gaga already stated in the past that they are actors and they were doing nothing but acting on the stage.Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have maintained a very private relationship. Back in February, the acclaimed model said in one of her interviews that she prefers to keep her romance out of the spotlight of paparazzi and media.”I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it,” she said back then.As of now, the reason behind the split is not revealed to the media but fans are still hoping that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk will work out their differences and get back together for the sake of their young daughter.last_img read more

Palestinians react as US ends funding

first_imgSaeb Erekat, secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, speaks to journalists in the West Bank city of Ramallah on 1 September Palestinians reacted angrily today to a US decision to end all funding for the UN agency that assists millions of refugees, seeing it as a new policy shift aimed at undermining their cause. Photo: AFPPalestinians reacted angrily Saturday to a US decision to end all funding for the UN agency that assists millions of refugees, seeing it as a new policy shift aimed at undermining their cause.Washington, which until last year was by far the biggest contributor to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), announced on Friday that it would no longer make any contributions to the “irredeemably flawed operation”.The move by president Donald Trump’s administration was described as “cruel and irresponsible” by senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi.“The Palestinian refugees are already the victims who have lost their homes, livelihoods and security as a result of the creation of the state of Israel,” she said.The US has backed Israel in accusing the agency of perpetuating the Middle East conflict by maintaining the idea that many Palestinians are refugees with a right to return to homes in what is now Israel.But to Palestinians, the right of return for the hundreds of thousands who fled or were expelled during the 1948 war that accompanied Israel’s creation is central to their cause.Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said the American administration was invalidating future peace talks by “preempting, prejudging issues reserved for permanent status” negotiations.Palestinian and Israeli “elements that want to achieve peace peacefully, based on a two states solution, are being destroyed,” he told AFP.Destroying’ children’s futuresIsrael however welcomed the US move. “Consolidating the refugee status of Palestinians is one of the problems that perpetuates the conflict,” an official in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said.Trump had already angered Palestinians by his December recognition of the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and axing more than $200 million in bilateral aid for Gaza and the West Bank.The new policy on Jerusalem overturned decades of precedent and prompted the Palestinian leadership to break off relations with the White House.Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said Washington’s latest decision “promotes terrorism” and was a violation of UN resolutions.He said Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas was considering appealing to UN bodies to challenge the US decision.UNRWA, established in 1949, was already facing financial crisis after Trump announced a $300 million funding freeze in January.The agency, which helps more than five million registered Palestinian refugees, says it now faces major closures to its network of schools and health centres.Mahmoud Mubarak, director of committees that run 19 refugee camps in the West Bank which accommodate some 500,000 Palestinians, warned of “very serious repercussions”.Mubarak said committee representatives would meet Tuesday to discuss their options.In the impoverished Gaza Strip, where most children attend UNRWA schools, 55-year-old Hisham Saqallah said the US move was “political blackmail” that would raise tensions.“If they stop aid to schools, this means destroying the futures of a large number of students and throwing them into the street,” he said.“If they stop the aid completely it would have a major effect on our children.”‘Profound’ consequencesUNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness said the agency would try to close a $217 million shortfall.“If not, some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people on the planet may well suffer,” he told AFP.“People are going to become more desperate and marginalised,” he said, warning of “dramatic, widespread, profound and unpredictable” consequences.Jordan, which is one of just two Arab countries to have signed a peace treaty with Israel, has announced plans to organise a fundraising conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York next month.The country’s foreign minister on Saturday voiced disappointment at the US decision, saying Amman had worked hard to convince Washington to keep funding UNRWA.“Any decline in the agency’s services and any attempt to diminish its role under its UN mandate would threaten dangerous consequences,” Ayman Safadi said.“Cutting refugees off from the agency’s services will deepen their feelings of deprivation” and create dangerous tensions, he said.State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the US would “intensify dialogue with the United Nations, host governments and international stakeholders about new models and new approaches” for assisting needy Palestinians.But Hugh Lovatt, an Israeli and Palestinian affairs analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said Washington would find scant support for its push for an alternative aid conduit.He said it was an attempt to “unilaterally take the Palestinian right of return off the table”.“But US actions are misguided, dangerous, and won’t work… neither Lebanon or Jordan can be expected to play along,” he said.last_img read more

Bowie State Wins First National Playoff Game In School History

first_imgBy MARK F. GRAY, Staff WriterIt was clear from the start that Bowie State was not overwhelmed by the NCAA Division II playoffs when hosting West Alabama at Bulldogs Stadium.  The Bulldogs learned valuable lessons in last year’s first round loss to Delta State so when things went from comfortable to precarious there was a calm about the 2018 CIAA Champions where they knew how to win.After blowing a 13 point second half lead, then relying on the defense to hold off the Tigers off for one last drive, Bowie State advanced with a resilient 41-35 victory, which continues their historic season.  The Bulldogs will face the number one seed in the Super Region II at Valdosta State.Bowie State won their first national playoff game in school history 41-35 against West Alabama at Bulldogs Stadium. (Courtesy Photo)Bowie State carries the banner for all HBCUs in this year’s Division II playoffs.  There were several other programs that had arguments for inclusion in the post-season tournament in what could be referred to as the region of doom, with four teams from the Gulf South Conference who made the postseason.This was the biggest win in the history of their program and brought credibility back to the CIAA.  The conference hadn’t won a game of this magnitude since the great Winston Salem State played for the national championship in 2012.  With Albany State losing in the SIAC Championship to Miles and Virginia Union, Morehouse, nor Tuskegee making the field of 28, carrying the mantle for HBCU football was something Bowie State recognized and wore as a badge of honor.“We don’t take that lightly,” Bowie State head coach Damon Wilson to the AFRO.  “We know that we are representing HBCU’s in these playoffs and it was important for us to play well”.BSU quarterback Amir Hall was almost flawless playing an all around game where he produced 411 yards total offense. His 31 of 48 360-yard one touchdown performance was more efficient than it was spectacular. Hall picked his spots spread the wealth to four different receivers as West Alabama focused on making things difficult for all-CIAA receiver Lansana Sesay.Sesay caught seven passes for 86 yards but never got loose against the Tigers secondary. However, he opened things for Jordan Crockett to erupt for 131 yards with his seven catches, including a 66-yard strike that led to one of Hall’s two rushing touchdowns.“They really never caught us off guard with anything that we hadn’t already seen on film,” said Hall.  “Early in the game I was finding the soft spots in their defense and waiting for the time to attack.”Things started ominously for BSU as West Alabama swiftly marched downfield on their opening drive. When Harry Satterwhite capped their seven-play 78-yard march with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Tyriq Martin, whatever energy in the building completely evaporated.  Since their Symphony of Soul marching band remains suspended because of a hazing investigation, it was   challenging to draw energy from the sparse late arriving crowd.“That was disappointing,” Wilson said.  “This is a playoff game and the stands should be packed. I know Maryland played Ohio State but, there was no championship on the line in that game. We were the only team in the state playing a game this big today and everybody needs to know about it.”However, the game swung on two massive defensive plays from Roger Richardson. Richardson’s 34-yard third quarter interception return set up Bryan Ellis’ three-yard touchdown giving them a 27-14 lead.  He then clinched the victory with a 36-yard pick six in the fourth quarter that proved to be the difference in the game.last_img read more
