Chelsea re-open Willian contract extension talks

first_img Loading… Read Also: Lampard, Ancelotti call for VAR ‘reflection‘“I’m not aware of the talks, what I am doing is focusing on the team and the squad day to day,” Lampard said at his press conference on Zoom. “I don’t have any real conversations about the transfer window, whether it’s about who we might bring in or who might leave the club.“Those are obviously questions we do have to answer come the end of the season when the window opens, but I certainly don’t want to be swayed by rumour or gossip, and I’m not involved in it so we’ll keep working.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 His good run of form comes after Chelsea agreed to a deal to extend his stay at the club until the end of the season , along with Pedro, just hours before the deadline from the Premier League. However, Pedro will leave upon the completion of the season with Roma having agreed on a pre-contract for the former Barcelona winger. Chelsea’s interest in keeping Willian comes as high-profile arrivals are soon to join up at Stamford Bridge with a £47.5 million deal already agreed for RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner and the £37m signing of Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech. Along with these two, Chelsea are determined to do further transfer business and Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell leads their priority list with Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz and West Ham’s Declan Rice also being considered. With these signings will come player sales and interest is ramping up for several Blues stars including Emerson Palmieri, who has had further contact from Inter recently. Juventus and Napoli are also monitoring his situation. Lampard refused to add further fuel to the fire when questioned about Emerson ahead of his side’s upcoming match against Watford on Saturday night.

The 31-year-old has already publicly voiced his desire for a three-year deal at Chelsea and if he leaves Stamford Bridge he will opt to stay in England, preferably with a big London club. Frank Lampard’s side are aware of interest from Arsenal and Tottenham and the Blues boss is keen to keep his winger away from his rivals, amid a spell of good form. Chelsea previously only offered one-year deals to over-30 players but they have since re-evaluated their strategy that ran between 2011 and 2018. After signing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in 2018, they broke their one-year contract policy and proceeded to offer David Luiz a two-year deal before selling him to Arsenal for £8 million last summer. Indeed, Willian’s performances on the pitch have given Chelsea little reason to withdraw from talks as he chases his best goal-scoring season of 13 after netting his ninth and 10th goals of the season in the defeat to West Ham.Advertisementlast_img read more

North Allegheny becomes first Quad-A team to win back-to-back-to back championships

first_imgFriday’s WPIAL title for North Allegheny was the fifth overall for Tigers coach Art Walker – three at North Allegheny and two at Central Catholic. That comes within one of the number of championships won by his father, also named Art Walker. The dad won five at Mt. Lebanon and one with Shady Side Academy.Alex Beasley, a Woodland Hills senior linebacker, had something he’d been itching to tell any member of the media willing to listen. “Our success came because we had a family atmosphere—there were no superstars on our teams, no one thought they were better than anybody,” Beasley said. “We have a Wolverine motto and that’s ‘To achieve, you must endure.’ Nobody thought we would be where we were today.”Woodland Hills has always been known as a team that gives excuses whenever they lose.North Allegheny opened the scoring when Quarterback Mack Leftwich threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Zach Lyon. Woodland Hills took a 14-7 led after quarterback Cody McClelland threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to star receiver Tom Greene and freshman sensation Miles Sanders scored on a 1-yard run.Leftwich, a Stephen F. Austin recruit and the son of a college football coach, hit Lyon for a five yard touchdown in the third quarter to tie up the game 14-14.Gregg Garrity, whose dad is a former Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver, caught the winning 32 yard touchdown pass from Leftwich.Elijah Zeise, son of sports writer Paul Zeise, led the Tigers in receiving yards for the second consecutive game with 89 yards on five catches.North Allegheny’s best player is two-way lineman and Michigan recruit Pat Kugler. Kugler is a three-year starter and he is the son of Steelers offensive line coach Sean Kugler.“To win 3 straight championships required a lot of work and commitment from the kids. Mack Leftwich is a quarterback who wants the ball in his hands. He has been great for us for two years,” said coach Art Walker. “We don’t care who we play next. Just tell us where we need to be and we will be there.”The debate as to who is the greatest— WPIAL team rages on like a Rush Limbaugh monologue. If you want to find out who the best baseball hitter in history, the thing to do is go to the experts, the ones who really know the game: the players, past and present.If you want to find out who is better Aliquippa or Clairton?Ask former Gateway and legendary Hall of Fame coach Pete Antimarino.That’s a question that can only be answered on the football field,” said coach Antimarino. “In 1986 North Hills was USA Today’s No. 1 team in the country and we were ranked No. 3 in the country and we settled things on the field. We knocked off North Hills to win the championship.” In the game of bowling, three strikes in a row is termed a “turkey” and North Allegheny (13-0) celebrated Thanksgiving Day weekend by stuffing Woodland Hills (10-3) 21-14. The Tigers became the first team in the history of Quad-A to bag the “turkey”, three straight WPIAL championships. OUT AT THE ONE—Elijah Zeise of North Allegheny is pushed out of bounds at the one yard line by Trevon Mathis (3) of Woodland Hills. Zeise had 5 catches for 89 yards in the Tigers 21-14 win over the Wolverines in the WPIAL Class AAAA championship game. last_img read more

High School AA Boy’s Volleyball Championships at UBC/O gymnasium in Kelowna.Mount Sentinel dropped the opening game 17-25 before winning two straight 25-23 in a thriller and 15-10 in the deciding contest.The win, following a pair of losses earlier in the day against Prince Charles of Creston and Highland of Comox, puts the Cats in third spot in Pool C play.Mount Sentinel, seeded 12th entering the 16-team tournament, meets Sahali of Kamloops today in the first round of the playoffs.The first day of the championships is similar to the way the season has gone for Glen Campbell’s squad as the team got better with age.“We have improved tremendously from the beginning of the season with only three Grade 12 players on the 11-man roster,” the head coach of Mount Sentinel said prior to the provincial tournament. “We are feeling optimistic in terms of our chances and really hope to gain some valuable experience to help with the development of this young team.”The optimistic Cats rallied from a 1-0 deficit against the Island School in the opening game Wednesday to even the match with a 25-20 win. But Highland outlasted Sentinel 15-11 in the final game to claim the match.Mount Sentinel then lost 2-0 to Prince Charles.

Thanks to those who make farming look simple, even when its not

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A few years ago my uncle got a new farm truck. He searched long and hard for a new model with as few electronic gadgets and gizmos as possible. No power seats, windows or locks, or AC. The truck has standard transmission and certainly no heated seats or heated steering wheels. He even has to turn the knob on the radio for goodness sakes. Why would anyone purposely subject themselves to such personal calamity?The answer: all that fancy stuff breaks, and it can’t be fixed in the farm shop. Power windows, for example, are very convenient until they happen to go out when you are trying to pay at a drive-through window in a torrential downpour. Then they are frustrating, unpleasant and expensive to fix (speaking from personal experience).As I get older I continue to gain more appreciation for non-fancy, basic stuff that really works the way it is supposed to. In my years I have had all too much experience with home improvement projects where you end up working on the dysfunctional tool used for the project rather than the project itself.So, when I find something really works the way it is supposed to, I find it very satisfying. I couldn’t help but feel this way as I strolled the winter pastures with Pete Conkle on his grazing operation nestled amid the rolling hills of Columbiana County, his roll of poly tape in hand. He is this year’s Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Environmental Steward Award winner.Throughout the history of agriculture, mankind has fought (and lost) many battles trying to force square pegs of food production into the round holes Mother Nature provides. One thing I truly enjoy about my job is getting to work with many farmers who have found ways to make the specifics of their situation work in relative harmony with the realities of maintaining a viable agricultural operation.Now, Pete, I am sure, would be the first to tell you that plenty goes wrong on the farm on a regular basis and that some days it definitely may not seem like things are working the way they are supposed to, because they aren’t. But, at the same time, it is hard to argue with the simple pleasure (based on years of hard work and management) of watching cows rush into fresh, new winter pasture and begin luxuriously feasting after Pete sections off a new area. When you watch it, it is clear that things are working the way they are supposed to. God grows grass, animals eat it, and man manages it all in way that produces food — appealing simplicity.Of course, anyone who knows anything about intensive grazing knows that the reality of doing this is anything but simple. Last month the Ohio Forages and Grassland Council (OFGC) held their Annual Conference at the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the program covered topics including research into the value of irrigating pasture, the benefits of reduced lignin alfalfa in increasing digestibility and the use of nitrogen inhibitors in pasture.All of the components of the program were to help attendees piece together a plan for better managing their pastures in the future.“Every day you have to manage it. A lot of people I work with want me to give them a cookie cutter method to do it this way and you’ll be good for this year. Every day you have to think about when you should turn them into a new pasture, when you should take them out of the old pastures. The problem we have in the spring is that we have more forages than livestock, and then in the summer we have the opposite — we have too much livestock and not enough forage. We have to take the extremes out of this equation. We can do that with management,” said Gary Wilson from Hancock County, with the OFGC. “You have to think through that because it involves your resources, different species, your soil type and many other factors. It takes planning and every day you have to think about what you want to do.”When gizmos and technology get frustratingly complex, especially when they decide to not work, something simple like mankind harnessing the combination of plants and animals to produce food is very refreshing. This, I believe, is true whether you are a farmer, a consumer, or an ag journalist.But, at the end of the day, achieving such simplicity is not so simple, and I appreciate the folks who understand that, but make it look simple anyway.last_img read more

How Tech Protects The President: Audio Analysis

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Data Services#web New audio technology can pinpoint the location and precise time of a gunshot — even the type of gun that fired it — up to 2,000 yards away. Shotspotter is that technology, and the third and final installment in this series on the technology protecting the President. SST Inc., the Mountain View, Calif., company behind the product, installed its sensors on buildings around the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. No incidents were reported, but that just may mean the system is working. Proponents of the product claim that it wards off as much crime as it detects.   Here’s how it works: Shotspotter antennae and sensors activate when the sound of a gunshot is detected. They triangulate the noise, measuring its intensity, to find the source, and then alert police. The system can even determine what kind of gun was used and the precise time it was fired. Wow. More than 70 departments use the system already. In most cases, officers say that just having the system quickly curbs criminals from even committing a gun crime, because of the high rate of detection.Basically it makes crooks think twice before taking a shot. While it’s hard to track these stats nationwide, some numbers we did find seem to support the system’s effectiveness. In Rochester, N.Y., gunfire was reduced 43% after Shotspotter went live; and in Minneapolis, that city saw a 30% decrease in gun shots reported within the first 30 days of introducing Shotspotter.These systems are at work in more than 60 U.S. cities and cost between $40,000 and $60,000 per square mile to set up and run. Photo by The Knowles Gallerycenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… adam popesculast_img read more

30 Brilliant Social Media Marketing Tips From 2011

first_imgWith so many great social media marketing tips getting shared in the blogosphere, we wanted to pass along some of the best tips and ideas that came up in 2011. These are tips that, if you haven’t benefitted from them yet, are evergreen enough that you can continue to leverage them well into 2012 to make your social media marketing rock.1. Write blog content for your target audience, which is not necessarily yourself. This happens with startups a lot. They blog about being entrepreneurs, which is great – if your target audience is entrepreneurs. Blog about the things that your community wants to know about. (Source: Mark Suster)2. If you’re going to use social media for customer service, mirror your hours of operation on Twitter to the hours of operation you have for your support team. (Source: Jeff Esposito)3. Measure social media ROI by analyzing how it performs compared to more established channels or advertising methods. It’s not comparing apples-to-apples when it comes to cost, but you can compare the quality of traffic they drive to your website. (Source: The Next Web)4. Mobile check-in deals aren’t just for restaurants and bars. See how one medical practice creatively offered a special to his tech-savvy patients for checking in. It’s something any small business marketer can learn from. (Source: Mashable)5. How frequently you blog does count. Businesses that blog daily generate 5 times more traffic than those that post only weekly or daily. (Source: Social Media Examiner) Bonus tip: need ideas for all that content? Here’s 100 of them to get you started.6. Hashtag-stuffing tweets doesn’t work. A study from Argyle Social shows that (in their sample) tweets with hashtags got 5% fewer click-throughs than those without hashtags. (Source: Social Media B2B)7. If you follow more people than are following you, you could harm your Twitter account’s SEO potential. Search engines “trust” those with more Twitter influence, and following many more people than follow you isn’t always an indicator of that. (Source: Marketing Profs)8. Building an online community? Show your power users that you appreciate their contributions. Do this by asking them for feedback, offering prizes and giveaways, and actually saying “thank you” for their interactions, mentions, and good content. (Source: Social Media Today)9. Blog about the problems your product or service solves – not about the product or service. No one cares about you (yet.) Everyone cares about their own problems and if your product or service can help. (Source: Social Fresh)10. Think of marketing as storytelling, and think of your customers as the characters. Think about what motivates them. Measure what patterns they display. Let their actions, wants, and needs drive the story. (Source: Joey Strawn)11. Depressing tweets, vague tweets, tweets about your weight loss – and of course, our favorite, the humblebrag – these are all messages that are better kept to yourself. A little personality is fun. But for the most part, stay professional and positive. And always, always stay classy, of course. (Source: BostInnovation)12. What does your social media strategy really need? It needs to answer simple questions. Who am I speaking to? What do they want from me online? How will this strategy evolve? It’s not tools or tactics or having the perfect definition for either one. It comes down to these basic ideas that are all about tying social media to your businesses needs. (Source: Smart Blogs on Social Media)13. Publishing a blog post on your company blog? Post several tweets of that post and track the success of different times and keywords for your followers. (Source: Social Media B2B)14. Stop talking about yourself if you want more retweets. Want to get more RTs? Of course you do. They drive traffic to your blog posts, can boost SEO, and connect you with with more followers. According to Social Media Scientist Dan Zarrella’s latest research, tweets with self-reference get fewer retweets than those with other information. So be relevant, share good information, and don’t make it about yourself. (Source: Dan Zarrella)15. The medium isn’t the message. Remember that Twitter, Facebook, or whatever platform you’re using isn’t the strategy; it’s a tool to distribute your message. (Source: Entrepreneur)16. Choose to measure social media metrics that tell you how you’re doing based on why you’re doing social media in the first place. This will require you to step back and think about why you are tweeting, or why you have a Facebook Page. Is it because you want sales? Then measure conversion rates. Is it for market research? Then monitor trending topics. (Source: Clickz)17. Use geo-location Twitter searches to identify local prospects to connect with. In Twitter’s advanced search, you can refine your search by keyword and location. (Source: Jeff Bullas)18. Use social media data to find your key influencers, outline your media plan, and develop your messaging. By listening to customer conversations on social media, companies can learn a lot of information about their competitors and industries that will help them better craft their marketing programs. (Source: Mashable)19. Create a Facebook group to stay connected with those you meet at conferences months after the last panel. The new Facebook groups aren’t the old “I lost my cell phone number” most people have been invited to at some point. New groups allow you to email content, use collaborative group docs similar to Google Docs (perfect for sharing Twitter usernames or other contact information), and message the whole group at the same time. (Source: Social Fresh)20. Consider the timing of your social media posts – time of day, time of week, and time of year. If you’re posting to your Facebook Page in the mornings but your audience isn’t looking until after office hours, your updates are lost in the mix.
