Cavani’s Hat-trick for PSG Inflict More Misery on Thierry Henry

first_imgEdinson Cavani inflicted more misery on Monaco and their manager Thierry Henry last night with a hat-trick to send Paris St-Germain 13 points clear in Ligue 1.Henry’s struggling side were totally outclassed by the French champions as Cavani scored the first three goals.Neymar added the fourth from the penalty spot as Monaco suffered a second successive 4-0 defeat. Henry’s side have won just one league game all season and are second bottom – five points from safety.Cavani opened the scoring from PSG’s first meaningful attack – the Uruguay forward tapping home Neymar’s pass – before doubling the lead with another close-range finish.Both goals were awarded after a short delay while they were reviewed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).Former Napoli player Cavani completed his hat-trick after half-time before Neymar’s penalty – after Kylian Mbappe was fouled by Djibril Sidibe – completed the rout.It could have been worse for Monaco but Julian Draxler and Mbappe had efforts disallowed.Monaco, eliminated from the Champions League after they were thrashed by Club Brugge last week, face fellow strugglers Caen following the international break on 24 November.portsShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Mirabai Chanu ranked eighth in latest Olympic qualification rankings

first_imgREAD | Now NFL Rushing Leader, Derrick Henry His Own Worst CriticAfter recovering from a back injury, which marred her progress in 2018, Chanu has constantly improved her performance in 2019. She lifted 86kg in snatch and a personal best of 113kg in clean and jerk for a total of 199kg at the Asian Championships in April last year to miss the bronze medal by a whisker. Her best performance came at the World championship in September, when the Manipuri breached the much anticipated 200kg mark by lifting her personal best in all three sections. In snatch, she lifted 87kg, followed by 114kg in clean and jerk for a total of 201kg. However, Chanu ended the year on a bittersweet note as she won gold at the Qatar International Cup – an Olympic qualifying silver level event — but her effort of 194kg was way below her personal best.The latest qualifying rankings feature three Chinese weightlifters in the top five. Reigning World Champion and world record holder Hou Zhihui (4703.1982) heads the list while Jiang Huihua (4667.8878) and Zhang Rong (3837.8294) occupy the second and fourth spots respectively.

Jamaica to observe anniversary of horrific train crash

first_imgClaimed close to 200 lives  Known as the Kendal Train Crash, the tragedy took place in the district of Kendal and claimed close to 200 lives.“This Friday, September 1, we will as a nation officially recall the circumstances of the horrendous train accident which claimed close to 200 hundred lives,” Grange said.She noted that the decision was made following discussions with individuals including Beverley East, author of the book, Reaper of Souls.Reaper of Souls gives an account of the Kendal Crash using fictional characters. St. Anne’s Church commemorating crashGrange said St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Kingston was also commemorating the Kendal Crash with a memorial Service on September 3.Many of those who died in the accident were members of St. Anne’s who were returning to Kingston from an excursion to Montego Bay when the accident occurred.The Kingston bound train had two diesel engines leading 12 overcrowded wooden coaches transporting 1, 600 passengers when it derailed at Kendal, resulting in the deaths of some 200 people and seriously injuring several others.The cause of the crash was narrowed down to a failure of the train’s braking system as it negotiated a curve. However, some people were of the opinion vandals on the train’s braking system. Beginning this year, Jamaicans will observe the anniversary of a horrific train crash that occurred in the central parish of Manchester in 1957. The anniversary will be recognized annually on September 1.The announcement was made on Thursday by Culture Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange.center_img National Library exhibition The Minister said among the activities this year to commemorate the Kendal Crash, “The National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) will be putting on an exhibition which will include general historical information on the train crash which was the second worst rail disaster in the world at the time. It will also display newspaper headlines and photographs of the scene of the crash.”She said that consideration was also being given to the NLJ going into partnership with the Jamaica Library Service to have the exhibition placed in all parish libraries, starting with the library in Manchester.last_img read more

Proposed Law Would Require Owners to Keep Household Pets Outside of FL Restaurants

first_imgA bill that was proposed this week in the Florida Legislature would require that most household pets be kept outside of what are currently considered “pet-friendly” restaurants.The proposal, which is currently known as HB 243 and was filed by Orlando Democratic Representative Bruce Antone for consideration during the 2020 legislative session, would prohibit household pets from “traveling through or remaining in indoor portions” of restaurants, “in order to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the public.”Although the bill, if it becomes law, would not override existing local ordinances, it would direct the state’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation to develop rules and create a website for complaints. In addition, service animals would still be allowed to enter food and dining establishments.The website for the state’s tourism-marketing agency, Visit Florida, states, “Dog-friendly outdoor restaurants, bars and craft beer pubs abound throughout the state, some offering ‘yappy hour’ canine-friendly designated times, others with an open-door doggie policy around the clock.”The 2020 legislative session starts on January 14.last_img read more

I’m thankful to be where I am and to have a chance to ride a horse like this.“Being born in Louisville and going back to my hometown where the Kentucky Derby is run would be huge. I spent my summers at Churchill Downs when I was growing up as a little kid and I’d visit the jocks’ room with my (late) Dad (Seth), so to win for all the people back there would be special.”Van Dyke has been a go-to guy for Baffert working horses in the mornings, and the two-time Triple Crown winner took the occasion of his San Felipe triumph to recognize his efforts.“Drayden has been doing a magnificent job and I’m happy for him,” Baffert said after winning the San Felipe for a record seventh time. “He works hard as does all my team. A lot of sweat and hard work goes into our program and we’re fortunate to have a horse like this.”As to Charlatan’s race today, Baffert said, “We’re looking to see what he can do going long. We’re trying to squeeze in a distance race to see if he continues on.”SANTA ANITA, GOLDEN GATE FIELDS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLICWith the utmost regard for the safety and well-being of our customers and employees and in following the best available guidance from local and international health authorities, Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields is temporarily closed to the public.Both tracks will continue live racing as scheduled with personnel licensed by the California Horse Racing Board in attendance which will provide our fans at home with the opportunity to stay connected to the action via our 1/ST BET and Xpressbet apps.We will continue to monitor the situation and will look forward to welcoming our fans and guests back again soon.FINISH LINES: Rags-to-riches Queen Bee to You has been retired and will be sent to Kentucky to be bred, trainer Andrew Lerner said.

Van de Beek’s agent opens up options outside Madrid

first_imgSoccer agents look with concern at the short-term future as a period of austerity in the looms looms. That will be one of the main consequences that soccer will suffer due to the coronavirus pandemic. The break caused by the COVID-19 has closed the tap of income of the clubs, which are already juggling to balance the accounts: ERTES, reduction of salaries in the templates … Volker Struth, representative of Toni Kroos, warned that there will be fewer transfers, and less, next summer and in that line it has been shown also Guido Albers, agent for Van de Beek, one of the most sought-after players in the current market. Uncertainty marks his speech. “What’s going to happen to Donny? No one knows at this time. The interest of various clubs, which is known, has been there for a long time. We will see what will come out in the coming weeks. I don’t dare say anything about it, also because some things are confidential, although the coronavirus will have changed the situation of some clubs and we have to look closely at that ”, he stated at Voetbal International.Albers foresees a market with fewer player movements and less money, although he is confident that the new scenario may have positive consequences for his client. Related to Real Madrid since last season he shone in that Ajax that eliminated the whites from the Champions League, his name has passed to the caboose on the Bernabéu agenda. Therefore, this new situation of crisis in the market makes the Dutchman’s agent open up to other options outside the capital of Spain: “Everything will be different, but I also have to be realistic: it also creates opportunities in clubs that perhaps thought they no longer had a chance and are now knocking on the door. I’m not worried about Donny. “United keeps an eye on him … In this range of options for the future, Albers does not rule out that Van de Beek remains in Ajax, as happened last season, when all the pools were seen outside the Johan Cruyff Arena, as happened with De Ligt and De Jong, the other pillars of that set trained by Ten Hag: “’The positive for Donny is that he is still very good everywhere. For Donny, the most important thing is, and has always said, a choice based on his feelings. That which he believes is best for him and which he believes to be the most successful. He did it last year and will continue to do it this summer. Don’t forget that Ajax is still the club he came to when he was a young player. It is not a punishment to play for Ajax. It will also include that in your consideration… “Two weeks ago, the player returned to distance himself from the possibility of signing for Real Madrid, despite the fact that in the Dutch press the possibility is a recurring issue. “My feeling must be positive in a club. It is not just that they love me, I also have to fit in with the game system and, of course, I also want to know the minutes they are going to give me, “he said in Helden. Asked if Madrid would be that ideal destination, he commented: “Playing in the sun is always nice, but no, I haven’t started taking Spanish classes yet.”last_img read more
