Ramsey, Aubameyang accused of worst kick-off ever in Arsenal loss to Spurs

first_imgAARON RAMSEY and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been accused conspiring to create the worst kick-off ever in Arsenal’s loss to Tottenham last night.The moment of madness set the tone for the Gunners who went on to lose 2-0 and miss out on a chance for some silverware in the Carabao Cup.3 Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang combined for an awful kick-offCredit: SkyPreparing for the big match, Ramsey inexplicably booted the ball straight to Son Heung-min with the first kick of the game, with Aubameyang seemingly not focusing.Son later went on to score the first with a well-taken strike, before Dele Alli sealed it with a sublime chip over Petr Cech.But fans were more concerned by the dreadful kick-off and took to Twitter to vent…One user simply tweeted: “Worst kick off ever #ARSTOT”.3 Aaron Ramsey booted the ball straight to Son Heung-min to start the gameCredit: Sky3 Tottenham quickly gained possession after the dreadful kick-offCredit: SkyAnother added: “Worst kick off I’ve ever seen since I’ve been watching football. Only Arsenal can do that. They surely know how to set those records.”A third claimed: “Set the tone, for the whole match…”Elsewhere in the game, Dele Alli was struck on the head by a bottle thrown from the crowd, before responding with a “2-0” hand gesture.Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil inspired the anger of Arsenal fans after a tweet posted at the weekend horribly backfired as he failed to make the squad for the Spurs loss.Dele Alli has a plastic bottle thrown at him in Arsenal vs Spurs Carabao Cup tieMORE ARSENAL STORIESSTILL GOT IT!Philip jokes with soldier about weight at ceremony 3 years after retirementSTAR POWERMeghan ‘needs to be admired’ & Kate is ‘the peacemaker’ according to star signsHEIR WE AREInside Prince Charles’ study full of family snaps & a sweet tribute to CamillaROOM WITH A VIEWInside Camilla’s living room with family pics & painting of Prince CharlesCHEEKY CHARLIECharles & Camilla’s ‘secret’ relationship is ‘fun, naughty & spontaneous’Not your queenWhy will Camilla not be Queen when Prince Charles is King?CAM OFF IT!Man, 53, says Megxit is cover-up to hide that he’s Charles & Camilla’s sonREIGN AND SHINEFrom Harry’s love life to Andrew scandal – what the 2010s meant for royalsROYAL HONOURWhy The Queen wears five poppies, Meghan Markle has one & Kate opts for threeROYAL HONOURMeghan and Harry honour our heroes at Westminster’s Field of RemembranceUnai Emery gives frosty response about Mesut Ozil’s future and says bottle-throwing is ‘not good behaviour’last_img read more

Meeting with President Granger

first_imgDear Editor,Representatives of the Amerindian People’s Association (APA) met with President David Granger and his team on June 14, 2017 and discussed the APA’s concerns on the recently established Commission of Inquiry (CoI) on Lands. Though called at short notice, the APA was able to quickly put together a team to meet with the President and the organisation appreciates the resulting constructive dialogue that took place in this meeting, as well as the President’s acceptance of the APA’s proposal that the CoI suspend further action on Indigenous lands until adequate consultation has occurred with Indigenous peoples and representative organisations such as the National Toshaos Council.Over the past five months, the APA has been consistently expressing its concern first about a move to establish a joint lands commission and then later the actual establishment of the Commission. Among the concerns listed by the APA is the inappropriate linkage between Indigenous land rights and ‘ancestral lands’ for Guyanese of African ancestry while acknowledging the Government’s prerogative to establish a CoI to investigate ‘ancestral lands,’. Other concerns include the seeming duplication of activities between the CoI and revision of the Amerindian Act which would address many of the same issues and in the most appropriate manner, and the Guideline pertaining to the demarcation and titling of Indigenous lands, which adopted by the ALT Project Board and endorsed by the wide range of stakeholders, governmental and otherwise, who were part of its development. The APA was also very concerned by possible delays in the approval of titles for Indigenous lands that had been attributed to the CoI, including those previously approved by the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs and pending signature by the Office of the President. We continue to hope that these and other pending titles will be processed expeditiously and transmitted to the communities who are eagerly awaiting news of the same.In February, the APA first wrote to the Board of the Amerindian Land Tilting and Demarcation Project then to President Granger asking for a meeting to talk about the very concerns listed above. On May 4, President Granger met with the APA through its Executive Director, Jean La following which she again documented the APA’s concern in a letter to him. The APA’s Executive Committee had been meeting in Georgetown during the end of May and therefore sought another with President Granger but this did not happen. However, when President Granger said he could meet with the APA on June 14, the organisation seized the opportunity to do so. The APA has always recognised that Indigenous rights issues are not the domain of one organisation or group alone and has also consistently sought to have discussions with like-minded representative groups and individuals and to present common positions that come from multiple sources when possible.In our meeting, the President acknowledged that his Government had overlooked some issues in seeking to address the long standing matter of Amerindian land and went further to state that these issues could be corrected or improved. In having the meeting with the APA the President said he hoped “to discuss how the Inquiry could proceed in an acceptable manner to Indigenous people and to all Guyana”. In making his five-point proposal, he noted that he would also have to meet with the National Toshaos Council and other organisations to not only inform them of these proposals but also to listen to their concerns and other proposals they may make.The APA, recognising that it could not make decisions on behalf of those who do not form part of its constituency, took note of the President’s proposal and made a request for the suspension of all CoI activities related to Indigenous land until there is more dialogue with all parties concerned and until all agree on the way forward. President Granger agreed to this, and the APA therefore looks forward to all being engaged in resolving issues of concern and to common positions in moving forward.Regards,Jean La Rose,Executive Director,AmerindianPeoples Associationlast_img read more

‘It’s the beginning of the end’ – Ian Wright tells Man City’s Sergio Aguero

first_img The Arsenal legend believes the Argentine striker should make way for Gabriel Jesus Ian Wright believes Sergio Aguero needs to realise his days at Manchester City are numbered following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.Jesus has enjoyed a dream start to his career under Pep Guardiola and has been preferred as City’s central striker in wins over Crystal Palace and West Ham in the last week.Aguero’s contract expires at the end of the 2018/19 season and revealed last year that he expects to return to Argentina.And Wright has questioned whether Aguero would be willing to play a lesser role in the future.Speaking to the Sun Football Podcast, he said: “Why would you be happy to be on the bench when you’ve done what [he’s] done at City, and you’ve got the goal scoring tally that you’ve already got this season?”Wright faced a similar situation at Arsenal back in 1997 following the arrival of Nicolas Anelka and knew his time at the north London club was coming to an end.“When Anelka came, I genuinely thought: ‘this is a matter of time.’ Wenger was getting me fit so that I could still kick on when I left.“You realise and you watch and say: ‘hmmm, it’s not going to be long now – I [don’t] have long here.’ And I was right.“It’s just about recognising that it’s the beginning of the end.”Listen to much more on ‘The Sun Football Podcast, sponsored by Sun Bets, with Ian Wright and Shaun Custis’ – available to download on iTunes now 1last_img read more

Valencia racer excited about Indy Challenge

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Herta visited the headquarters of XM Satellite Radio, his primary sponsor, on Tuesday. He also was featured on a couple XM programs, the “Ron & Fez Show” (XM 202, High Voltage) and on “Broadminded” (XM 155, Take 5). Herta has not finished inside the top 10 since the IRL race at Twin Ring Motegi in Japan in April. He was 20th in the Indianapolis 500, 13th at Watkins Glen International in New York and 11th at Texas Motor Speedway two weeks ago. But Herta has never started outside the top eight at Richmond and his best finish came in 2004 when he was fourth. “We’re back on one of the handling tracks where the balance of the car becomes our primary focus and speed results from that,” said Herta, driver of the No. 7 Honda-powered entry for Andretti Green Racing. “The lap at Richmond is so short and so busy and you’re always in traffic, so you need to have a car that you’re confident and comfortable with in all the hairy situations we’ll encounter.” Richmond International Raceway in Virginia has always been a place where Valencia’s Bryan Herta has qualified well. It has produced some high finishes for him, too. After a string of poor finishes, Herta is looking forward to racing at Richmond, site of tonight’s Indy Racing League SunTrust Indy Challenge. “I really enjoy the Richmond track,” said Herta, a Hart High of Newhall graduate. “It’s a very important stop for us with XM Satellite Radio based nearby.” Herta was sixth fastest in practice on Thursday at Richmond. He turned 98 laps and had a top speed of 168.530 mph. “We had a productive day and learned a lot in the car,” Herta said. “We still have some work to do, but we made ground (Thursday).” Marlboro Team Penske driver Sam Hornish Jr. had the fastest lap on Thursday at 171.407 mph. Marco Andretti was the top Andretti Green driver at 169.315 mph, second fastest on the day. Andretti Green’s Tony Kanaan was third fastest in practice and Dario Franchitti was fifth fastest. Irwindale Speedway: Newhall’s Travis Thirkettle won his fifth straight race in the NASCAR Late Model division at Irwindale Speedway last Saturday night. He has a 73-point lead in the Late Model standings after six races. The NASCAR Super Late Models, Super Trucks, Mini Stocks, Legend Cars and figure 8s are schedule to race tonight at Irwindale Speedway. The Late Models will return to racing on July 1. Canyon Country’s Rod Johnson is fifth in points in the Super Late Model division. Canyon High graduate Todd Southwell of San Marcos is sixth in points; Cory Fancy of Canyon Country is 13th and Kevin Wood of Saugus is 19th. Ron Peterson of Riverside has a six-race win streak in the Super Trucks. Pat Mintey of Quartz Hill is second in the Super Trucks standings. Rookie Brian Reed of Castaic is fourth in points; Dave Blakenship of Stevenson Ranch is 11th; Logan Henson of Valencia is 16th; Bill Sedgwick of Acton is 19th and rookie Brent Cusick of Canyon Country is 20th. Gates open at 4 p.m. Races start at 7. On the Net: www.indycar.com INDY RACING LEAGUE SunTrust Indy Challenge Site: Richmond, Va. Schedule: Today, race (ESPN2, 5 p.m.). Track: Richmond International Raceway (D-shaped oval, .75 miles, 14-degree banking in turns). Race distance: 187.5 miles, 250 laps. Last race: Helio Castroneves took advantage of a botched pit stop by Dan Wheldon at Texas Motor Speedway and won his third race of the season. Last year: Castroneves avoided disaster with nine laps to go and cruised to victory in the SunTrust Indy Challenge. Castroneves was leading with nine laps remaining when Darren Manning and Roger Yasukawa made contact just ahead of him. Manning’s car skidded quickly into the outside wall, and then Yasukawa’s followed, but not before Castroneves was able to squeak by, with Yasukawa’s car missing his by inches. Fast facts: Castroneves is the series’ only multiple race winner and the points leader with 232. He had only one win in each of the last two seasons. … In addition to Manning and Yasukawa, Scott Sharp, Sam Hornish Jr., Vitor Meira, Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon also were knocked out of last year’s race by crashes. … Danica Patrick started 21st in last year’s race and finished 10th.

Yahoo profits plummet 38%

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Yahoo missed its financial targets in the third quarter, a letdown that investors already knew was coming. Semel braced Wall Street last month by warning Yahoo’s revenue had slipped late in the quarter because of a decline in automobile and financial services advertising. The Sunnyvale-based company earned $158.5 million, or 11 cents per share, for the three months ended in September. That compared with net income of $253.8 million, or 17 cents per share, in the same period last year. The quarters weren’t totally comparable because of new accounting rules requiring Yahoo to deduct the cost of employee stock options from this year’s profit. Still, the results matched analyst expectations, according to Thomson Financial. Revenue for this year’s quarter totaled $1.58 billion, a 19 percent increase from $1.33 billion last year. SAN FRANCISCO – Yahoo Inc.’s third-quarter profit slid 38 percent amid slowing revenue growth that has raised investor doubts about the Internet bellwether’s strategy and execution. Tuesday’s disappointing results were compounded by a dimmed outlook for the current quarter. But Yahoo Chairman Terry Semel offered hope for a turnaround next year by acknowledging the company’s recent difficulties and vowing to fix them with a “back to basics” approach. The promise helped lift Yahoo’s sagging stock price, which increased by more than 3 percent in extended trading. Semel punctuated his pledge by announcing Yahoo had finally started to roll out much-anticipated improvements to its system for selling and distributing ads tied to search terms and other topics displayed on a Web page. The new platform, which Yahoo abruptly delayed three months ago, is considered the key to the company’s comeback efforts. The changes aren’t expected to begin boosting Yahoo’s profits until next year. After subtracting commissions Yahoo paid its advertising partners, third-quarter revenue totaled $1.12 billion, slightly below analysts’ already lowered expectations. Yahoo didn’t give investors any reason to feel better about the fourth quarter, traditionally the company’s most lucrative because the holiday shopping season encourages more advertising. Excluding ad commissions, Yahoo forecast its fourth-quarter revenue will range from $1.15 billion to $1.27 billion. The average analyst estimate had been $1.30 billion, according to Thomson Financial.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
