Danny Mills United lack the willpower to drop underperforming players

first_imgFormer England footballer Danny Mills says Manchester United lack the capacity to drop underperforming players unlike their rivals who do so effortlessly.Mills told The Debate in an interview obtained by Skysports that Mourinho was not blessed with the same strength in depth as some of United’s rivals, meaning he could not keep his players on their toes to achieve results.He said: “Where he has had a problem with some players is that Guardiola can drop anyone, and bring someone else in. You can’t complain about it because he has the quality to bring in, that squad is exceptional”“Mourinho doesn’t really have that depth in his squad. It’s difficult when he drops a big player, does he have the quality to replace them? No he doesn’t, in all honesty.”“It’s a bare squad in some ways. Look at Lukaku, he’s not performing and hasn’t scored at Old Trafford in a long time. But who does he bring in? He can’t. At Manchester City you’ve got players who can step in, and at Liverpool too.”“There’s competition for places. Do Manchester United have that? I’m not sure they do.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…On the plan to buy new players, Mills said:“Jose is used to winning, he’s used to top players and he’s used to consistency. It might be a bit dour, the way he plays, but he knows what he wants.”“He wants seven or eight out of 10 every single week. He doesn’t want Jesse Lingard being brilliant one week and terrible the next, he doesn’t want Marcus Rashford doing the same, he wants a solid platform.”“Jose has never been one to really improve players or bring them through as Pep, Klopp and Pochettino have done.”“Mourinho wins trophies, but he does it with a team he can bring in of exceptional players he can mould together, and he hasn’t really been allowed to do that.”last_img read more

Joining Forces Receives Industry Pledge to Hire Train 90000 Veterans Spouses

first_imgA group of technology and energy companies have committed to hire or train 90,000 veterans and military spouses in the next five years, First Lady Michelle Obama announced last week during an event marking the fourth anniversary of the Joining Forces initiative.When the effort to raise awareness among all Americans about the service, sacrifice and needs of military families initially was launched, President Obama challenged the private sector to hire 100,000 veterans and spouses.Now, less than four years later, “America’s businesses have continued to race past my husband’s initial goal, and together, those businesses who answered the president’s call have hired or trained more than 850,000 veterans and military spouses,” the first lady said.The commitment from technology and energy firms is particularly valuable as those industries are driving economic growth, reported DOD News.The president recently announced the expansion of a pilot program to train transitioning service members for jobs in the solar industry. The Solar Energy Industries Association is pledging to hire or train 33,000 veterans and spouses over the next five years, the first lady said.The corporate hiring initiatives typically involve a partnership between industry and educational institutions involving job training, internships and apprenticeships.The Joining Forces event was held in Manassas, Va., at Micron Technologies, which makes memory-storage devices. The manufacturer is participating in a pilot program through the Northern Virginia Technology Council to match student veterans at local institutions of higher learning to 50 high-tech companies throughout the region.“Veterans get hands-on experience and the companies connect with a pipeline of top-notch talent,” Obama said. The northern Virginia partnership is one of many across the country helping veterans and military spouses, she added. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Louisiana Coroner Rules Museum Founders Death A Homicide

first_imgBy REBECCA SANTANA Associated PressThe founder of Baton Rouge’s African American history museum died of suffocation and her death was a homicide, a coroner ruled Monday, as residents of Louisiana’s capital city struggled to come to terms with the slaying of the well-respected, 75-year-old community leader.East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark released preliminary autopsy results that show Sadie Roberts-Joseph was suffocated before her body was found in the trunk of a car Friday.In this Feb. 17, 2010, photo, Sadie Roberts-Joseph, founder of the Odell S. Williams Now and Then Museum of African-American History, now known as the Baton Rouge African-American History Museum, poses for a portrait wearing an Egyptian headdress, in Baton Rouge, La. East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark released preliminary autopsy results Monday, July 15, 2019, that show Roberts-Joseph, 75, was suffocated to death before her body was found in the trunk of a car over the weekend. (Travis Spradling/The Advocate via AP)He said Roberts-Joseph died from “traumatic asphyxia, including suffocation.” The Advocate reports this means her airways were physically blocked, cutting off her oxygen supply.Roberts-Joseph founded the Baton Rouge African American Museum in 2001. It features a 1953 bus that visitors can board to learn more about the Baton Rouge bus boycott of that year. They can also learn about three different types of cotton grown in the museum’s garden, and learn more about African American contributions in areas such as inventions and art.C. Denise Marcelle, a state representative and former member of the council that governs Baton Rouge, had known Roberts-Joseph for years. They worked together on Juneteenth celebrations which commemorate the end of slavery.“She was just a very likeable person and that is why the community is so outraged,” Marcelle said. “It’s really a shock to the entire Baton Rouge community. It’s just a shock.”Recently Marcelle said she’d put the lieutenant governor’s office in touch with Roberts-Joseph so they could work together on a civil rights trail project across Louisiana. Marcelle said Roberts-Joseph often came to the council to speak on various issues. She was soft-spoken and even if she disagreed with you on an issue, she did it respectfully, Marcelle said.The Baton Rouge Police Department announced Saturday that Roberts-Joseph’s body had been discovered Friday. Sgt. L’Jean Mckneely Jr. said Monday that she’d been discovered in the trunk of her own vehicle.“The Baton Rouge Police Department joins the community in mourning the loss of Ms. Sadie Roberts-Joseph. Ms. Sadie was a tireless advocate of peace in the community,” the department said in a Facebook post Saturday.“We had opportunities to work with her on so many levels. From assisting with her bicycle giveaway at the African American Museum to working with the organization she started called CADAV. (Community Against Drugs and Violence) Ms. Sadie is a treasure to our community, she will be missed by BRPD and her loss will be felt in the community she served,” the post said.__Follow Santana on Twitter @ruskygal.last_img read more

Beware Babys cry can alter your brain functions

first_imgThe brain data revealed that the infant cries reduce attention to the task and triggered greater cognitive conflict processing than infant laughs. “Parental instinct appears to be hardwired yet no one talks about how this instinct might include cognition,” said David Haley from the University of Toronto.The team looked at infant vocalisations — in this case, audio clips of a baby laughing or crying —and its effect on adults who completed a cognitive conflict task.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’They asked participants to rapidly identify the colour of a printed word while ignoring the meaning of the word itself. Brain activity was measured using electroencephalography (EEG), which took place immediately after a two-second audio clip of an infant vocalisation. Cognitive conflict processing is important because it controls attention — one of the most basic executive functions needed to complete a task or make a decision. A baby’s cry has been shown to cause aversion in adults but it could also be creating an adaptive response, “switching on” the cognitive control parents use in effectively responding to their child’s emotional needs while also addressing other demands in everyday life, Haley added in a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“If an infant’s cry activates cognitive conflict in the brain, it could also be teaching parents how to focus their attention more selectively,” he added. The findings add to a growing body of research suggesting that infants occupy a privileged status in our neurobiological programming, one deeply rooted in our evolutionary past. But, as Haley noted, it also reveals an important adaptive cognitive function in the human brain.last_img read more
