Silva Uniteds poor start hasnt helped Fred

first_imgGilberto Silva insists Manchester United’s poor start to the season hasn’t helped Fred.The Brazil international joined United from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer but has struggled to have an impact in the Premier League so far.But Gilberto Silva insists Mourinho’s team have been worryingly inconsistent with good results quickly followed by a poor performance, and that hasn’t Fred.“The moment at the club is not the best,” the former midfielder said, according to Daily Mail. “That has been a problem. And that means there has been a lot of pressure on him and the rest of the players.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Also, Fred has been used to playing in a certain system in Ukraine and now he has to get used to another one.”“But I know him well. I know he will fight. When I speak to him he tells me he just wants to work harder. He is very determined to be a success.”“And I am sure he will be.”Silva reveals he is still in touch with Fred on a frequent basis and that the Brazilian is determined to be a success at Old Trafford.“It takes time to get used to football in England. It was hard for me when I first came to Arsenal from Brazil. Everything is different. The pace and the tempo of game. The intensity. It is so different to Brazil.”last_img read more

Alaskan Native Pete Kaiser Wins Iditarod Sled Dog Race

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Pete Kaiser won the Iditarod early Wednesday, throwing his arms over his head and pumping his fists as he became the latest Alaska Native to claim victory in the iconic sled dog race. “I’ve always said that I’m very fortunate to have the support system I have, the whole community of Bethel, and the whole Kuskokwim River and all of western Alaska,” he said. It’s the first Iditarod victory for Kaiser in his 10th attempt. He said he wasn’t sure what made everything come together this year for him. Fifty-two mushers began the race in Willow. Petit was among 10 racers who withdrew during the race. Kaiser greeted Ulsom under the finish line and shook his friend’s hand. Kaiser’s winning time was 9 days, 12 hours, 39 minutes and six seconds. Ulsom finished the 1,000-mile (1,600 kilometer) race 12 minutes after Kaiser. Ulsom was about 40 minutes behind Kaiser and made up ground in the final 77 miles (124 kilometers) to Nome but couldn’t overtake him. Ulsom placed second, coming across the finish line before Kaiser could get his picture taken on the winner’s podium. Petit’s downfall came near the same spot on the Bering Sea coast where he surrendered the lead in the 2018 race after getting lost in a blizzard. He recovered in time to finish second last year. Kaiser, 31, crossed the finish line in Nome after beating back a challenge from the defending champion, Norwegian musher Joar Ulsom. This year’s race was marked by the stunning collapse of Frenchman Nicolas Petit, who was seemingly headed for victory as late as Monday.center_img Petit, a native of France living in Alaska, had a five-hour lead and was cruising until his dog team stopped running between the Shaktoolik and Koyuk checkpoints. Kaiser will receive $50,000 and a new pickup truck for the victory. Four other Alaska Native mushers have won the race, including John Baker, an Inupiaq from Kotzebue, in 2011. “Just years of knowledge gained and trying to put it all together to have a better race, better dog team this year, every little detail coming into play,” he said in a post-victory interview televised statewide from the finish line, adding that a little luck didn’t hurt either. Kaiser called that support “extremely humbling and it motives me every to perform to my best, and I just want to thank them for coming out here tonight. This is just awesome.” Crowds cheered and clapped as Kaiser came off the Bering Sea ice and mushed down Nome’s main street with a police escort to the famed burled arch finish line. His wife and children greeted him, hugging him at the conclusion of the race, which began March 3 north of Anchorage. Petit had to withdraw, and the dog team had to be taken back to the previous checkpoint by snowmobile. Petit said one dog was picking on another during a rest break, and he yelled at the dog to knock it off. At that point, the entire team refused to run. Kaiser, who is Yupik, is from the southwest Alaska community of Bethel. A large contingent of Bethel residents flew to Nome to witness his victory. Alaska Native dancers and drummers performed near the finish line as they waited for Kaiser to arrive, even though it was past 3 a.m. local time.last_img read more

Uber sets IPO price range of 44 to 50 a share

first_img Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Sarah Tew/CNET Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. See It Sprint Turo: Save $30 on any car rental I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Angela Lang/CNET Uber,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. 0 Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. Read DJI Osmo Action preview Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harrys shocking Godparent decision causing Royal row

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle and Prince Harry may be alienating the Royal Family with their controversial decision about baby Archie’s godparents. Meghan and Harry’s decision to keep the identity of the godparents private has sparked huge criticism among royal watchers.A newly-resurfaced report reveals how a full-scale family row escalated at Prince Harry’s own christening, over Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s choice of godparents. Now not everyone will be happy with the choice Meghan and Harry make, but there are a few obvious choices that need to made regardless, like choosing Prince WIlliam and Kate Middleton as baby Archie’s godparents.  Meghan Markle may choose her American friends to be baby Archie’s godparents. Kate Middleton and Prince William might not even be in the running, which will be a huge slap in the face to the couple Cambridge. Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesBuckingham Palace said in a statement recently that the christening at Windsor Castle on Saturday will be private and that the identities of the godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will remain private too. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s recent decisions are winning them any supporters, first with Meghan keeping the delivery of baby Archie a secret as well as her refusal to pose for a picture on hospital steps after giving birth, to the exorbitant expenditure on renovations of Frogmore Cottage. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex might need to allow the public and the press in once in a while if they want to get public favour. As for now, rumours are running rampant that Oprah Winfrey and Amal Clooney are in the running to be godparents. If Meghan and Harry do go ahead with Hollywood celebrities as godparents for their child, they might have to face the ire of not only the British public but the Royal Family as well.last_img read more

Globally acclaimed Kanyashree emerges as saviour for girls from cashstrapped families

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s pet project Kanyashree, which has garnered worldwide recognition, has come as a boon to girls coming from economically challenged families, with aspirations of higher education.Case in point, the project has helped the students of Muralidhar Girls’ College to carry on with higher education. Around 125 students of the college got benefits of the project in 2016-17, while around 155 were benefitted in 2017-18 and around 240 in 2018-19. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata”I come from a very modest background and there was a time when I did not know whether I could pursue my true passion, which is dance. After receiving Kanyashree, I gathered the courage to start a dance class and am happy to see my life getting transformed,” said Bishakha Das, daughter of a domestic help. She is pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication at Muralidhar Girls’ College. “Receiving Kanyashree in 2017 has greatly helped me in meeting my education cost as I come from a poor family,” said Nasifa Ali, a former student of Muralidhar who is now pursuing a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology.

The college, as many would know, did not earlier have the Science stream but coming from a background in Chemistry, I thought the knowledge of science was very integral to women’s education,” said Kinjalkini Biswas, principal of the college, while paying her homage to Muralidhar Bandyopadhyay, educationist and visionary whose birthday was on Tuesday. To mark the occasion, Kavita Singh, associate professor, West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata, gave a lecture on women empowerment. Muralidhar Girls’ College was initially the Ballygunge Uchho Balika Vidyalaya, which was set up in 1919. It was later converted to Muralidhar Girls’ College in 1940, affiliated to The University of Calcutta.last_img read more
