Robertson reveals Reds game plan for Bayern

first_imgAndrew Robertson claims Liverpool must be at their best when they welcome Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.Klopp’s men have made the most of the FA Cup week by organising a training camp in Marbella as they gear up for their last-16 first-leg tie against the Bundesliga champions.And with the season getting to its crucial stages,  Robertson believes the break in Spain will prove to be beneficial till the end of the campaign.All smiles on day four. 😄💪— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 15, 2019“Two massive games. When we landed in Marbella on Monday our full focus was on the Bayern Munich game,” he told the club’s website.“We need to be full throttle for that game. They are such a good team and they have been the last six or seven years so we know what a tough task it will be.“But we believe we can cause any teams problems and we have to be at our best.”Robertson who has been immense for the Reds this season is counting on the fans to roar them to victory after brushing aside the Cherries in their last home game.“I think that’s what all good teams do,” when asked if players responded to the crowd.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We had a good run last season and especially in the Champions League, I think it helped massively.“Everyone knows how special nights here are in the Champions League.“We feed off each other. Players feed off the fans and the fans feed off the players because it’s up to us to get them to have something to shout about.”How we see it, this is our little preparation for the rest of the season. It’s not only Bayern but of course it’s Bayern as well.” 👊A lack of sun has taken none of the shine off Klopp’s intended benefits from #LFC’s training camp in Marbella.— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 15, 2019“But it also helps when they’re getting behind us and it can maybe give you that extra percentage or whatever in the game.“That’s what home fans are for. Every club’s got it and it’s all about making the most of it.”Liverpool have not lost a European match at Anfield since a 3-0 group stage defeat to Real Madrid in October 2014.last_img read more

SANDAG proposes new transportation vision

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom SANDAG proposes new transportation vision KUSI Newsroom, April 26, 2019 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsSAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Association of Governments’ Board of Directors unveiled the agency’s plan to revolutionize the county’s transit network today to mixed reviews from county officials.The agency’s proposed plan would drastically increase the county’s use of technology in its network of roadways and increase public transit services in an effort to reduce reliance on personal vehicles and greenhouse gas emissions. The plan is essentially a reworking of the agency’s 2019-2050 Regional Plan, which had been in development since 2017.SANDAG had until February expected to complete the Regional Plan by the end of the year, when it would begin serving as a guideline for future infrastructure development around the county. But the SANDAG Board unanimously voted in February to push that timeline back two years to develop a more ambitious and forward-thinking plan.The new plan, dubbed “Five Big Moves,” is mostly conceptual and SANDAG officials don’t expect to release more concrete details until later this year, possibly by fall.The plan would repurpose the county’s network of roads and highways to be more efficient, expand public transit to better connect residents from where they live to where they work and call for the implementation of so-called “mobility hubs,” which would include multiple mobility and transit options, dedicated bike and pedestrian infrastructure and supporting amenities for travelers.At the heart of the proposal is “Next OS,” the “brain” of the transit network that will connect residents, transit service providers and county infrastructure to make the movement of both people and goods more efficient.San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, a SANDAG Board member, called the new plan “bold and exciting.”“It will allow us to use evolving technology to get people out of their cars, reduce traffic congestion, and enhance our transportation network to improve quality of life for residents across the region,” Faulconer said. “This innovative approach puts San Diego on track to become a national leader in transportation, and I look forward to working with the county and all of our regional cities to make this vision a reality.”Officials from the North County Transit District, Metropolitan Transit System and Caltrans also praised the plan for its effort to reshape the county’s transit network to reflect the ways in which residents traverse San Diego County.While agency officials say the plan is still very much elastic and will include multiple chances for public feedback, county Supervisor Jim Desmond raised the question of how the new plan will utilize TransNet, the county’s half-cent sales tax on public transit that pays for local infrastructure and transit upgrades. County residents voted to extend the tax for 40 years in 2004.Desmond suggested that the plan amounts to a bait-and-switch by the agency because it removes certain projects from the county’s future development plans that were promised to voters in 2004. He also argued that freeways and roads are necessary for the county’s rural and non-urban populations.“The TransNet tax was adopted because the voters were persuaded that the road projects to be funded were critical,” Desmond wrote in a Twitter post. “Improvements to the 52, 67 and 78 freeways need to be funded, as that’s what voters were promised.”Desmond said he plans to submit a letter to Board of Supervisors Chair Dianne Jacob at the board’s Tuesday meeting calling for opposition to any changes that affect the use of TransNet funds.The letter will also request that the board support future development of the county’s network of roads and highways over public transit increases.Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, the only Democrat on the technically nonpartisan board, called Desmond’s letter an attempt to cling “to a failed past.”“The vote before the board is about choosing to believe in climate science or being a climate denier,” Fletcher said. “It is about choosing cleaner air or increased pollution for the next generation. It is about fast, reliable transportation or more congested roads.”SANDAG plans to start holding public meetings and forums later this year to take feedback on the Regional Plan. If the agency remains on its current track, the Board of Directors would give its final approval of the plan in late 2021.“The region’s transportation choices need to be efficient, accessible, and affordable,” SANDAG Board Chair and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said. “People need to be able to get where they want to go, when they want to go there and how they want to go there. I look forward to working with my colleagues, stakeholders, and planners to ensure that we deliver on that vision.” Posted: April 26, 2019last_img read more

Vancouver mayor pushes parks levy

first_imgMayor Tim Leavitt on Friday urged his fellow council members to put a parks levy before voters this year — a move that could free the struggling department from further cuts.The city would move parks and recreation to a separate Metropolitan Parks District, taking it out of the general fund, which also supports police, fire and streets, and to its own taxing district like the Fort Vancouver Regional Library system.“We all know that parks is highly supported by a core group of folks,” Leavitt said during a day-long budget meeting at the Artillery Barracks at the Fort Vancouver National Site. “Why not give folks in our community an opportunity to weigh in on it sooner than later?”Details of how much the levy would ask for, or if it is even a viable option, remain unclear, but Leavitt asked staff to prepare a series of workshops on the topic as soon as possible.Their goal could be a vote on a property tax increase as soon as the August primary, which would have a May deadline to be put on the ballot.last_img read more

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. 7News cameras captured the charred, partially submerged remains of Capt. Jack’s and the dry-docked sightseeing boat.“The flames, the smoke, if it wasn’t for the fire department, man, things would have been a disaster around here,” said Jackson.The owner of Capt. Jack’s and another person were on board when the fire broke out, but no one was injured.Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said putting out the flames was a challenge. “This was a pretty intense fire here to try to battle with the amount of equipment that was surrounding the boat,” he said. “We had to use foam to actually bring this fire under control. A minimal amount of water was used in the surrounding areas.”There was so much smoke that, officials said, area residents initially thought a house was on fire.“This is a hell of a way to start the new year,” said Jackson. “Thank God that nobody got hurt.”Tuesday afternoon, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials were at the scene of the fire. It remains under investigation. MIAMI (WSVN) – Four boats at a marina in Miami caught fire following what a witness said was a blast, Tuesday.Cellphone video sent in by a 7News viewer showed a 24-foot boat, called Capt. Jack’s, engulfed in flames at C & F Marine, located at Northwest 12th Street and 22nd Avenue. The video also showed dark smoke billowing into the overcast sky.According to City of Miami Fire Rescue, Capt. Jack’s and a dry docked, 50-foot sightseeing boat were destroyed by the flames. Two other vessels also sustained damage.7News cameras captured firefighters working to extinguish the blaze that sparked on a waterway that feeds out to the Miami River.Witnesses shared images of the flames on social media.One witness said he saw an explosion beforehand. “I see like a big explosion, like something big,” he said.“I heard something go ‘boom!’ and I start to smell it,” said witness William Jackson. “When I come outside, all this is going on. A guy said he was on his boat, working on his boat, and the boat exploded, but he didn’t get hurt.” last_img read more

Onion prices likely to fall further from current twoyear lows

first_imgOnion prices are projected to fall further from the current two-year lows, as the market will see additional supply from late kharif harvest.Expecting an oversupply situation, the government has lifted all restrictions on export of onions. This move resulted in onion exports from India “dominating” all major overseas markets, including Malaysia, Sri Lanka and West Asian nations, The Economic Times reports.Even after lifting export restrictions, onion prices continued to fall making farmers halt auctions for a few hours at the Pimpalgaon Baswant in Maharashtra’s Nashik district, Tuesday.”The decline in prices was expected. Prices may decline further by another Re 1 per kg and stabilise at Rs 6.5 per kg,” Ajit Shah, president of Onion Exporters Association of India, told the daily.Removal of restrictions on exports has failed to arrest the decline in onion prices, he said.Markets across the country are witnessing a rise in supply of onions.Pimpalgaon APMC (agricultural produce marketing committee) saw an increase in onion supply by 1.5 lakh quintals in January compared to same month last year, said Dilip Bankar, chairman of the Pimpalgaon APMC.Demand for onion from net importers such as Delhi and West Bengal has fallen due to availability of onions in all parts of the country.”Onion is abundantly available in Maharashtra as well as all other states,” said Danish Shah, one of the oldest onion exporters in the country.In August last year, onion prices touched a two-year high amid a continued fall in supply due to delay in harvesting and concerns over poor monsoon.last_img read more

Howard County Sheriff Refuses to Step Down Despite Allegations of Racial Slurs

first_imgHoward County leaders are trying to oust the county sheriff after a scathing report accused him of racism, bigotry, and retaliating against staff that didn’t support his reelection. Heading law enforcement in one of Maryland’s wealthiest counties, Sheriff James Fitzgerald, insisted, despite calls for him to step down, he will not resign.Howard County Sheriff James Fitzgerald has been accused of using racial slurs in the workplace. (Courtesy photo)Accused of threatening employees using racial slurs, the report alleged an atmosphere of intimidation lead by Fitzgerald, whose behavior likened him a “poster child for bigotry, bullying, and temper tantrums.”In a news conference where only select press were invited and no questions were allowed, Fitzgerald addressed the charges as “humbling, hurtful and disappointing.”The 49-page investigation, conducted by the Office of Human Rights, included statements from dozens of current and former employees of the sheriff’s office, including an African-American deputy Fitzgerald reportedly made constant comments to about watermelons. Even Fitzgerald’s supporters, confirmed his statements and behavior to the county investigators.“It’s disgraceful that as the nation teeters on the edge of a total breakdown in racial tolerance, our county sheriff had lost his mind. If the head is rotten, then the entire law enforcement community must be equally scrutinized because of his leadership,” Columbia resident Portia Murray told the AFRO. “Fitzgerald’s refusal to step down or at least to answer the charges being levied against him, is disheartening.”Others county residents, including Charles Younger of Glen Burnie, believe the charges against Fitzgerald may be overstated or suspicious because of the current anti-police sentiments among African-Americans.“There are a lot of spaces where men speak rough and where language is not always politically correct. I’d like to believe that Sheriff Fitzgerald’s words fell on sensitive ears, rather than to believe he is a racist bigot,” Younger told the AFRO. “When I worked a foreman’s crew years ago, me and the other guys were constantly being called ‘Princess’ or ‘Mary Alice’ by the lead man to get me to pick up the pace. I would never have reported him for hurting my feelings.”As an elected official, Fitzgerald cannot be fired, forcing state lawmakers, including Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman, to consider impeachment to restore order.“A hostile work environment alone is not the way we should have our sheriff’s department run,” Kittleman told the Baltimore Sun. “I recognize that impeachment of any elected official is an extreme step, one that should not be taken in haste. But the offensive actions and behavior documented in the OHR report are so grossly contrary to the shared values of inclusion and respect for all that we hold dear in Howard County that I see no other recourse.”Fitzgerald currently manages 69 employees with a budget of nearly $8 million, in a job that pays him $91,000. The sheriff’s current term ends in 2018.Fitzgerald’s office did not respond to requests for comment.last_img read more

Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell 9

first_imgArizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell (93) celebrates after intercepting a pass against the San Francisco 49ers during the first half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   It doesn’t ease the season’s poor start, but maybe, just maybe the Arizona Cardinals are on the verge of climbing out of the hole they dug for themselves.And if so, then they can point to this win, a 33-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers that kicked off Week 5 on Thursday Night Football.And they did it with their starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, back home in the Valley.Drew Stanton passed for two touchdowns, both to Larry Fitzgerald, and David Johnson rushed for two scores to help the Cardinals snap a two-game losing streak. The Jets, coached by Todd Bowles, who spent two seasons leading the Cardinals’ defense in 2013 and 2014, have never played at University of Phoenix Stadium. In fact, they have not visited the Valley since 2004.This will only be the ninth meeting between the two teams.The Jets have won the past six matchups, including the most recent get-together in 2012 in New York, 7-6.Overall, the Jets lead the all-time series 6-2, dating back to 1971. – / 31 Your browser does not support the audio element. The Cardinals have never lost three straight under head coach Bruce Arians.Stanton completed 11-of-28 attempts for 124 yards and Fitzgerald caught six balls for 81 yards. But no one had a better performance than Johnson, who totaled 185 yards from scrimmage.Breaking it down, Johnson had 157 rushing yards and 28 receiving yards.Defensively, the Cardinals sacked Blaine Gabbert seven times.The Cardinals have won three in a row over their NFC West rival.THE GOODIn the history of the National Football League, there have been just five streaks longer than Fitzgerald’s current one of 184 consecutive games with at least one reception. He reached No. 184 with a five-yard catch on 2nd-and-7 on the Cardinals’ third possession of the first quarter. By the way, that was Stanton’s first completion after he misfired on his first four throws of the game.Entering the game, Stanton had never thrown a touchdown to Fitzgerald. That changed late in the second quarter, and now Stanton is the 13th different Cardinals quarterback with a touchdown pass to Fitzgerald, who caught a 21-yard ball on the very first play after Calais Campbell put the ball on the San Francisco 21-yard line with an interception. The score tied the game at 7. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo LISTEN: Luke and Paige Show Have a half, Markus Golden. He had a half-sack in the first quarter (shared with Alex Okafor) and added a full sack in the second quarter, giving him 1.5 sacks for the game and 5.5 sacks for the season. That surpasses his rookie total of four in 15 games. Golden now has a sack in five straight games. Only Curtis Greer’s seven-game streak in 1984-85 is longer in franchise history.No player in the National Football League has more touchdown receptions against the Niners than Fitzgerald. Give him 16 after his third-quarter score, which put the Cardinals ahead, 21-7, at the 7:35 mark. Fitzgerald caught a 29-yard pass to complete a six-play, 71-yard drive in 3:19. For Fitzgerald, it marked his 18th multi-touchdown reception game of his 13-year career.In Cardinals history, only Ottis Anderson (19) has more touchdowns through his first two seasons than Johnson. But Johnson is closing in fast. He recorded his 17th in the third quarter, a four-yard run that handed the Cardinals their first lead, 14-7, at the 12:45 mark. Later in the fourth quarter, he scored his 18th, a two-yard run that made it 31-14 Cardinals at the 4:44 mark.THE BADAnd the drought continues. The Cardinals have gone five straight games—a total of 13 possessions—without a first-quarter point, the only team in the league with that dubious distinction. And this despite the Cardinals outgaining the Niners, 81-32, on Thursday. By the way, of the 81 yards, Johnson accounted for 58 on nine carries. – Starting right guard Evan Mathis exited the game late in the second quarter with an apparent ankle injury and was replaced by Earl Watford.– Elevated from the practice squad to the active roster only hours before kickoff, undrafted rookie Hakeem Valles started the game at tight end.– The Cardinals have recorded back-to-back wins in San Francisco for the first time since 2005-06, and they improved to 2-1 at Levi’s Stadium.– The Cardinals improved to 8-3 in primetime games under Arians, while also running their winning streak on Thursday nights to three in a row.– With the victory, Arians moved into fourth place—passing Jimmy Conzelman and Charley Winner—on the franchise all-time wins list with 36.– Among the Cardinals’ inactives were a trio of defensive linemen: Josh Mauro, Robert Nkemdiche and Olsen Pierre. Mauro had a chest injury.– This was the first of three consecutive primetime matchups. The Cardinals have played consecutive primetime games but never three straight.UP NEXTIt’s an extended break for the Cardinals, who now won’t hit the field for a game until Monday, Oct. 17, when they host the New York Jets in a primetime affair featuring their former defensive coordinator. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:25 p.m. MST with pregame coverage beginning four hours earlier on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Two of the Niners’ three first-half, third-down conversions came on their only scoring drive of the half. It was their second possession of the second quarter, which ended with Gabbert’s nine-yard throw to Jeremy Kerley on 3rd-and-5 to put the Niners ahead, 7-0 at the 4:12 mark. On the drive, Kerley had four catches for 63 yards.There is no running back better at finding the end zone than Carlos Hyde, at least thus far. His third-quarter, one-yard run was his sixth score of the season, which is tops in the NFC. It was an 11-play, 82-yard drive in 5:41 to make it 21-14 Cardinals at the 1:54 mark. The Niners converted one third down but recorded five first downs.STAT OF THE GAME17: The Cardinals scored 17 points off of three takeaways. They won the turnover battle (+3) after losing that statistical category in each of the past two weeksHE SAID IT“Everybody got a part of (the win), and the defense played outstanding,” Fitzgerald said. “It was a win we needed to have.”NOTED– Cornerback Marcus Cooper now has as many interceptions in his last four games (three) as he had in his entire 40-game NFL career prior.– Starting left guard Mike Iupati exited the game early in the third quarter with an apparent left ankle injury. He was replaced by John Wetzel. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories last_img read more
