Liverpool legend Aldridge dismisses Guardiola Man City claimsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend John Aldridge has dismissed the claims of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola ahead of Thursday’s clash.Guardiola has declared anything but a victory will end their title defence.Aldridge told the Irish Independent: “Are Liverpool title favourites? Maybe we can say they will move into that position if they get a win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium next Thursday, but I still feel there will be a lot of twists and turns in this title story,” says Aldridge.”None of us saw these slips from Manchester City coming and it means Liverpool will head into the crunch game against them on Thursday night in an unexpectedly dominant position.”A draw in that game would ensure Klopp’s side still have a solid lead at the top of the table, while a victory would yield the pressure on a City side that have struggled to cope in the absence of Fernandinho and David Silva in recent weeks.”There is no doubt that Liverpool are in a great position, but this is only the half way point in the season and there is a long way to go, a lot of points to play for.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

On a trip to Haiti on Monday and Tuesday, President Clinton visited several sites where Clinton Foundation investments and partnerships have made a difference and begun yielding results.The Clinton Foundation has been actively engaged in Haiti since 2009, focusing on economic diversification, private sector investment and job creation in order to create long-term, sustainable economic development.In 2013 the Haiti team provided approximately $1 million in grants and investments to support Haitian entrepreneurs, small businesses, and farming cooperatives, helped to facilitate more than $30 million in foreign direct investment into Haiti, and continued to provide capacity building and access to markets for Haitian businesses and the Haitian Center for Investment Facilitation.DigicelOn Monday, President Clinton visited the Union Des Apotres – Prodev School, which was built by Digicel as part of their CGI commitment to build 150 schools throughout Haiti. The school has also had significant support from NRG Energy, Urban Zen and Happy Hearts Fund. It is currently the only solar powered school in Cite Soleil.The Clinton Foundation made a grant to the school last year for Earth Day to support a tree planting activity and Earth Day celebration, which has evolved into a school garden program that will help add fresh, nutritional content to school feeding programs. In addition, the Foundation linked the school with NRG Energy, which has helped build a new canteen and a solar canopy for the school that is expected to produce enough energy to meet 100 percent of the school’s power needs.MarriottDigicel also announced this weekend that they will soon be topping off their $45 million Marriott hotel in Port au Prince. Digicel and Marriott’s partnership, facilitated by the Foundation, has brought new investment and new training opportunities to Haiti.Marriott, working with the Minister of Tourism, will soon announce the youth who have been selected for their Hospitality Leadership Development Program. This group of 10 young Haitians has interviewed (with the Ministry and with Marriott) for internships at the JW Marriott in the Dominican Republic and will begin working at this location when it opens in a few months. The youth will return to Haiti with newly learned skills and on-the-job experience to pursue a new opportunity — to be a member of the team at the Haiti Marriott as it prepares to open in February 2015.Thiotte/Coffee AcademyLater on Monday, President Clinton visited the Haiti Coffee Academy (HCA) in Thiotte, one of Haiti’s primary coffee growing regions. The Clinton Foundation has contributed over $150,000 to the creation of the Academy, and the Foundation has been working to promote Haitian coffee to US and international buyers to revitalize the industry. Coffee is the main source of income for more than 100,000 farmers in Haiti.Yesterday, the Clinton Foundation announced a $28,000 grant to Fonkoze, the leading microfinance organization in Haiti, to provide literacy training programs to up to 600 small-holder farmers and others in Thiotte.SRSOn Tuesday, President Clinton visited the recycling collection and bailing center of Sustainable Recycling Solutions Haiti (SRS). The Clinton Foundation worked to help relaunch SRS last year with a joint $250,000 investment with Todd Wagner.In just the past three months SRS, working with their network of collectors, have taken over 10 million bottles off the streets. In addition, the Foundation has worked with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park who co-founded SRS, to bring more visibility to this project. Eco Wear has partnered with SRS to buy plastic bottles to create a variety of consumer products, including merchandise for Linkin Park.In addition, Giant Dragon, which has recycling operations in Hong Kong and the Dominican Republic, has partnered with SRS and announced that it has committed to purchasing a minimum of 4 million pounds of SRS plastic over the next year.IRIIPresident Clinton also visited Industrial Revolution II (IRII), a new apparel manufacturer in SONAPI Industrial Park that invests 50 percent of profits into their workers, their families and the local community. IRII currently employs over 100 people, primarily women, and with increased orders and business they have incredible potential to expand.Garments constitute 90% of Haiti’s exports, earning $800 million a year, and the sector currently employs 31,000 people. The Foundation has been working with IRII’s founding partners – Joey Adler, Rob Broggi, Richard Coles, and Matt Damon – for close to three years, helping them work through issues in Haiti and connecting them with potential apparel buyers.
Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address two rallies – one at north Bengal’s Siliguri and other at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade Ground — on April 3 ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, a party leader said on Sunday. “His first public meeting will be in Siliguri at 1 p.m. and then he will attend a rally at Brigade Parade Ground at 3 p.m.,” BJP leader Mukul Roy told reporters. He said no political party had earlier shown the courage to organise a Brigade rally as well as a rally in North Bengal in one day. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “We will successfully organise both the rallies in the time frame of just 10 days. People of north Bengal will come to Siliguri while supporters and activists will join the Brigade rally,” he said. Modi held three rallies in Bengal’s Thakurnagar, Durgapur and Jalpaiguri in February where he launched a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee government, blaming it for violence, corruption and extortion. Permission for party’s “Save Democracy” programme was denied by West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress and a planned rally at the iconic Brigade could not be organised earlier because it was initially part of the Save democracy programme, Roy said. The Bharatiya Janata Party holds two Lok Sabha seats in the state and hopes to win at least 22 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats. West Bengal will see seven-phased polling from April 11 to May 19.

Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorAfter adding two former Michigan assistants, Greg Mattison and Al Washington, to his coaching staff, head coach Ryan Day hired another Big Ten assistant Thursday. Ohio State announced that former Maryland linebackers coach and special teams coordinator Matt Barnes would join the Buckeyes as their special teams coordinator and assistant secondary coach next season.“Matt is young coach who has really done a great job at Maryland,” Day said in a statement. “He’s an energy guy who has considerable knowledge of the Big Ten Conference plus experience coaching in the Southeastern Conference. He’s going to work well with our staff and I’m pleased to have him on board.”Last season, Barnes helped lead a Terrapins linebacker room that excelled in terms of tackling, housing Tre Watson, the Big Ten’s leader in tackles, who was named as a first-team All-Big Ten as well as a second-team All-American member by the Football Writers Association of America. Barnes was a defensive and special teams graduate assistant at Florida under former Gators head coach Will Muschamp from 2012-14. In 2013, the Gators held the second-best kickoff coverage and the third-best punt returns in the country. In 2015, Barnes spent a season at Michigan as a defensive analyst. The Wolverines had the No. 4 total defense in the NCAA that year.He was named as the Special Teams Coordinator of the Year by footballscoop.com in 2012. Barnes is one of three new coaches that have joined Day’s coaching staff with Washington, Mattison and newly-hired co-defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley.
Celtic Football Club manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he wasn’t too despondent at his team’s inability to record a win against Livingston in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.The first draw in six league games for the champions was still enough for them to reclaim top spot in the Premiership for the first time this season.“I thought it was a good game and credit to both teams.” Rodgers said, according to Daily Mail.“We did the basics very, very well. Livingston test you with how they play with throw-ins, deep free-kicks and I thought we stood up that really well.”Generous in his praise for the performance of Livingston keeper Liam Kelly, the former Liverpool manager continued:“We had chances and their goalkeeper was man of the match.”Match Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“He made three fantastic saves and I have no complaints. My team has given everything over the last seven weeks and we have to give credit to Livingston. They are a tough team to break down and they have been up at the top.”“The season started slowly for us. But I’ve been so pleased with the last seven weeks or so – the performance level.”“We were never going to reach top level today in terms of goals and creativity as the surface is really difficult for that.”“You add to that a team which defends really well and it was always going to be difficult for us. It’s a good point here on the back of all the games we’ve had.”“So we’ll take the positive from it of which there were a lot.”“Our form and our rhythm has been really positive. We hope they all come back from international duty fresh and fit and we’ll look forward to a busy but exciting period between now and the mid-season break. So it’s looking really good for us.”

Oil prices dipped in early Asian trade on Monday as rising production in the Middle East outweighed falling U.S. output and the recent slide in the dollar, which has been supporting crude.Brent futures LCOc1 were trading at $47.05 per barrel at 0028 GMT on Monday, down 32 cents from their last settlement. U.S. crude CLc1 was down 28 cents at $45.64 a barrel.Analysts said rising output from the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and especially the Middle East was outweighing supportive factors such as an ongoing, albeit slow, fall in U.S. output and a sliding dollar, which makes it cheaper for countries using other currencies to import dollar-traded fuel.”The weaker dollar failed to excite investors in the crude oil markets,” ANZ bank said, citing a rise in OPEC-output as the main downward driver for prices.The dollar has fallen over 6 percent this year against a basket of other leading currencies .French bank BNP Paribas said that a recent oil rally, with prices jumping almost a third since April, was largely driven by sentiment and lacked physical fundamentals.”The recent rally in oil prices appears to have little to do with fundamentals,” it said.”We see the recent rally as sowing the seeds of its own demise, and extending our recommendation to protect against short-term downside risk.”OPEC-supplies rose to 32.64 million barrels per day (bpd) in April, from 32.47 million bpd in March, according to a Reuters survey based on shipping data and information from sources at oil companies, OPEC and consultants.That almost matches January’s 32.65 million bpd, when Indonesia’s return to OPEC boosted production to records.Despite Monday’s lower prices, other analysts are growing confident that a near-two-year rout in oil has ended, and many have raised their price forecasts.The chief of the International Energy Agency (IEA) said oil prices may have bottomed out, providing the health of the global economy does not pose a concern.”In a normal economic environment, we will see the price direction is rather upwards than downwards,” IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said on Sunday.Non-OPEC output is set to fall by more than 700,000 bpd this year, the biggest decline in around 20 years, he said.With global oil demand seen growing by 1.2 million bpd this year, the draw in global stockpiles will start soon, helping push up prices, he said.
