first_imgManchester City were forced to defend deep in the final stages at Watford on Tuesday but ensured their juggernaut kept rolling on with a 2-1 victory that extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.The champions, who are unbeaten in the league, were again without Sergio Aguero but close-season signing Riyad Mahrez showed his worth by setting up Leroy Sane for the first goal before scoring himself.Bournemouth moved up to sixth with a 2-1 home win over lowly Huddersfield Town, while there comfortable wins for West Ham United and 10-man Brighton & Hove Albion.City were having trouble finding a way past Watford keeper Ben Foster at Vicarage Road but the Englishman will not want to see the replay of him being beaten by the chest of Leroy Sane five minutes before the break after a Mahrez cross.Algerian Mahrez then fired home himself shortly after halftime to set Pep Guardiola’s marauding side on the way to what looked like an easy victory.Watford did not give up and Abdoulaye Doucoure fired in from close range five minutes from time. The hosts, without a win since October, pushed City deep into their own half but could not stop them claiming a 13th win in 15 league games this term.Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser notched a goal and an assist each to snap the south-coast side’s four-game losing streak with a 2-1 home win over Huddersfield Town.Wilson gave the hosts the lead after five minutes with a superb header from a free kick that Fraser whipped in. Wilson returned the favour 17 minutes later by passing to the unmarked Fraser who slotted the ball past keeper Jonas Lossl.Terence Kongolo pulled one back for the visitors seven minutes before halftime as Bournemouth’s shaky defence failed to clear a high ball and the defender headed in. But it was not enough to stop Eddie Howe’s side moving up to sixth.Brighton were reduced to 10 men in the ‘M23 derby’ against Crystal Palace but still ran out comfortable 3-1 winners thanks to goals from Glenn Murray, Leon Balogun and Florin Andone.Murray converted a 24th minute spot kick for his ninth goal of the season before Shane Duffy was sent off for a clash with Patrick van Aanholt after a penalty appeal was turned down.The hosts doubled their lead just after the half-hour mark through substitute Balogun before Andone scored the third in first half stoppage time.Luka Milivojevic converted a late penalty for Palace after a foul on Wilfried Zaha but it was too late for Roy Hodgson’s side who slipped to 15th, three points above the relegation zone.Three is a magic number for West Ham with the 3-1 victory over Cardiff City at the London Stadium being their third successive win and they have scored three goals in each.Lucas Perez came off the bench to score twice shortly after halftime before Michail Antonio headed home a third.Josh Murphy bundled in a consolation for 16th-placed Cardiff at the end but, with the bottom three sides all playing on Wednesday, Neil Warnock’s men could be in the relegation zone by the time they welcome Southampton on Saturday.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, February 3 – French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala was banned from entering Britain after he reportedly planned to visit to support Nicolas Anelka over the footballer’s use of the “quenelle” gesture.Britain’s interior ministry said it had slapped an exclusion order on Dieudonne, who has a string of convictions for anti-Semitic speech in his homeland, on the grounds of public security. “We can confirm that Mr Dieudonne is subject to an exclusion order,” a Home Office spokeswoman said in a statement.“The home secretary (Theresa May) will seek to exclude an individual from the UK if she considers that there are public policy or public security reasons to do so.”British media reported last week that 47-year-old Dieudonne was planning to perform a show in Britain and hold a press conference in support of his friend, French international Anelka.A Home Office spokeswoman refused to give further details on the order banning from Britain.But a British government source told AFP on condition of anonymity: “The reason for the exclusion order is that he was going to come to the UK.”Dieudonne was due to perform on Monday evening in the Swiss town of Nyon. He was not immediately available for comment on the British ban.Anelka has been charged by the Football Association, the sport’s governing body in England, after he made the “quenelle” gesture, which was popularised by Dieudonne and is described by critics as anti-Semitic.The West Bromwich Albion striker made the gesture during a goal celebration after scoring against West Ham during an English Premier League match on December 28.Anelka denies the charge, saying he is neither anti-Semitic nor racist.Britain has used exclusion orders on rare occasions in recent years to keep out public figures deemed as having extreme views.People banned include firebrand US pastor Terry Jones and the US anti-Muslim political bloggers Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, all of whom were planning to attend rallies by the far-right English Defence League.France has in recent weeks intensified a crackdown on Dieudonne, who has been widely accused of promoting anti-Semitism and has been convicted in France for hate speech and other related offences.The French government in December succeeded in preventing him from starting a nationwide tour of a new show, “The Wall”, because of its perceived anti-Jewish content.Last week French police seized 650,000 euros and $15,000 in cash during a raid on his house as part of a probe into suspected fraud.Authorities are currently trying to force Dieudonne to pay more than 65,000 euros ($90,000) in outstanding fines related to his convictions and suspect that the 47-year-old was planning to fraudulently declare himself bankrupt.The “quenelle” is Dieudonne’s trademark stiff-armed gesture that critics say is a disguised Nazi salute but that he defends as a generic “up yours” to the French establishment.Some followers of Dieudonne have been photographed doing the quenelle at sites including Auschwitz, synagogues and outside a Jewish school in Toulouse where a rabbi and three children were shot dead by Islamist gunman Mohamed Merah in 2012.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img Tyler Magloire has serious pace… Usain Bolt celebrates winning the gold medal in the men’s 100 Metres Final World Athletics Championships in Berlin. Bolt set a new World Record of 9.58. Tyler Magloire is set for a big future at Blackburn Rovers Tyler Magloire has become the fastest player in Blackburn Rovers’ history, hitting a top speed of 10.6 metres per second (m/s).To put that into perspective, it makes him quicker than Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, who notched a top speed of 10.55m/s during the 3-1 win over Monaco. NEED FOR SPEED @Rovers Tyler Magloire: 10.6 m/sKylian Mbappe: 10.55 m/sUsain Bolt: 10.44 m/s (average, Berlin 2009 –  top speed 12.42 m/s)  2 “It was tough,” he told Sky Sports News. “While I was injured, I spent quite a bit of time with the club psychologist. He helped me keep my head, made sure when I came back I was ready to go again.”He returned for the Under-23 side, who were seemingly set for the drop from the Premier League 2 Division 1. However, as captain, Magloire led Damien Johnson’s side to 12 wins in their last 16 matches.As a result of his fine form, the young Englishman was rewarded with a new professional contract in February until June 2022. 2 It also means he has beaten Usain Bolt’s average time from his 100m sprint when he set the world record back in 2009 in Berlin.The 20-year-old smashed the previous record at Edwood Park, eclipsing the 10.2m/s record previously held by Josh King.“Nobody beats him in a foot race,” Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray said after handing the centre-back Magloire his debut in a 3-0 win over Wigan last month.Having been with Rovers since he was nine, the defender has had to wait patiently for his chance. At the start of the season, he injured knee ligaments and was ruled out for four months, making him think his chance had gone.last_img read more

first_imgThe funeral takes place today of tragic Ramelton man Terry Toland.The untimely death of Terry from Whiteleas, Ramelton on Sunday in a workplace accident at a Connemara harbour has stunned the community in his native town where the family roots are deeply embedded over many generations.Aged 41, Terry, a father of four children was working on the installation of pontoons at Rossaveal Harbour in the Connemara Gaeltacht at around four o’clock on Sunday evening when he was reportedly injured by a piece of industrial equipment. The Irish Coast Guard administered first aid at the scene of the accident and Terry was flown to University Hospital, Galway by the Shannon-based Sikorsky air/sea rescue helicopter.He was pronounced dead later on Sunday night.by John McAteerTerry had spent his working life in the steel fixing trade and has been described by family and workmates as a highly skilled and dedicated professional. In one of Ireland’s most closely knit communities, the Toland family circle has paid their heartfelt thanks to all their relations, neighbours and all who’ve called to the wake.They’ve said the presence of the community has been a great source of comfort and inspiration to them in this most difficult of traumas.And as Terry battled for his life, the family has thanked the officers who provided them with a Garda escort as they rushed to his bedside in Galway late on Sunday evening.After his apprenticeship with Houston Engineering in Letterkenny, Terry was employed by Quinn Piling in Downpatrick and worked in many parts of the UK and in Ireland.He was also instrumental in the construction of the steelworks on the new town hall stage some eleven years ago and he is so fondly remembered for his contribution to this community effort. He was a highly respected member of the community and lived and worked for his family and his passing has left the community traumatised.The Requiem Mass is at 11am today, February 2nd in St Mary’s Church, Ramelton followed by interment in the adjoining cemetery.Terry’s home was in Ramelton with his partner, Rosie and children, Jay (13) Breena (6) Quinn (2) and ten month old Adeline.He is also survived by his stepdaughter Jamie Lee, by his parents, Kevin and Kathleen: brothers and sisters, Brian, USA and Joe in Australia and Joanne and Shauna in Ramelton: brother and sisters in law, Terry, Marian and Zoe: his uncles, Lawrence, Patsy, Ferdie, Adrian, Danny and Charlie: his aunt, Eileen, cousins nieces and nephews, close friend, Noel Byrne and an extended family circle to whom deepest sympathy is extended. Since Tuesday morning his remains reposed at the home of his parents Kevin and Kathleen at Whiteleas and many hundreds of mourners have travelled from near and far to offer their condolences: to say a silent prayer and to remember a wonderful friend and neighbour whose passing leaves a deep void in community life in the area.The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is investigating the incident. A second man was also hurt in the incident, but his injuries were described as not life threatening.Donegal community to unite today to say final farewell to Terry was last modified: February 2nd, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:deathdonegalRameltonterry tolandlast_img read more

first_imgAt or around 5:41 pm, on April 9th, 2017, the Cherokee County 911 Dispatch Center received a call in reference to a disturbance at 209 Beal Circle. The reporting party had advised that the male, Mr. Nelson, had been swinging a sword at her and advised that if any law enforcement showed up at the residence that Mr. Nelson would shoot them. Upon the arrival of law enforcement from the Murphy Police Department and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, they were advised that Mr. Nelson had barricaded himself inside with other occupants of the residence.Shortly thereafter, the occupants of the residence were released and were able to come outside. During this time, multiple attempts were made by law enforcement and Mr. Nelson’s mother to come outside of the residence via mobile phone and a patrol vehicle PA System, but Mr. Nelson refused. After much persuasion,  Mr. Nelson was able to put the makeshift firearm down and exit the residence as he was making various threats to the assisting law enforcement officers. Mr. Nelson was then taken into custody as he was resisting being placed in handcuffs and placed inside of the patrol vehicle.Mr. Nelson had made various threats to officers of the Murphy Police Department while being arrested and taken into custody. Given our previous history with Mr. Nelson, we found these threats to be credible.Cherokee Tribal Police SWAT was notified of the incident and placed on standby. They were later cancelled after the defendant was in custody.Mr. Nelson is currently incarcerated in the Cherokee County Detention Center on the following charges:– Second Degree Kidnapping (2 Counts)– Resisting Public Officer (2 Counts)– Communicating Threats (3 Counts)– Injury To Personal Property (1 Count)– Go Armed To The Terror Of The Public (1 Count)– Assault With A Deadly Weapon (1 Count)Mr. Nelson was given a $40,000.00 secure bond for the listed above offenses. His first court appearance is scheduled for April 25th, 2017 at 9:00 am in the Cherokee County Courthouse.last_img read more

first_imgMost people are aware of the need for captions to make videos more accessible. But few are familiar with the requirement for audio description for videos, which accommodates people who are blind or have low-vision. Audio description narrates what visually is happening in the video, information that’s not available to someone who can’t see. Think of a radio sports announcer at a baseball game, describing the ground ball hit to the third baseman who throws the ball to the second baseman for the beginning of a double play. That’s similar to audio description.
