Man City’s risk-vs-reward style paying off for Guardiola

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP): Manchester City’s risk-versus-reward approach under Pep Guardiola was summed up in one passage of play during a Champions League match against Celtic. With two opponents closing in, City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo coolly slid a pass between them to midfielder Fernandinho on the edge of the area. Pressured by two more hounding Celtic players, Fernandinho produced a Cruyff turn to create space for himself and burst upfield. Just like that, Celtic was opened up and City was launching another attack. Guardiola acknowledges his possession-based style is fraught with danger but it’s been getting results, with City making its best-ever start to a season in winning 10 straight games and scoring 30 goals in the process. It sparked talk of City winning the Premier League at a canter. However, a 3-3 draw at Celtic on Wednesday that ended City’s winning run exposed potential fallibilities in Guardiola’s side. Bravely standing toe to toe with City, Celtic pressed high, hassled relentlessly and looked to outmuscle City’s ball-playing defenders. It worked, with City enduring an uncomfortable night at atmospheric Parkhead, especially at the back. Sitting deep against City and attempting to soak up pressure has got teams nowhere so far. Celtic have shown fellow sides the blueprint to trouble Guardiola’s side: Take them on. As it happens, Tottenham one of the best proponents of a high-energy, high-intensity pressing game are City’s next opponents in the standout match of the Premier League this weekend. It’s first versus second in the standings, a meeting between two unbeaten teams. Tottenham will know Bravo isn’t great under the high ball and takes risks with the ball at his feet. They’ll know the likely centre-back pairing of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi can be brittle. And they’ll know the absence of injured playmaker Kevin De Bruyne takes some creativity out of City’s side. Tottenham beat City home and away last season, but it will be a huge task to stop the new-look City juggernaut. Guardiola has got City operating at previously unseen levels. The team’s biggest problem under his predecessor as manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was its work rate. But under Guardiola, City is second behind Liverpool in the “distance covered” category, according to sports data company Opta. Dropping Yaya Toure has helped City in this regard. Guardiola is getting the best out of winger Raheem Sterling, who was a disappointment last season after signing for $76 million, by giving him self-belief and playing to his strengths by getting him one on one with defenders as much as possible. He has five goals already. Likewise, Aleksandar Kolarov is looking like a different player under Guardiola, who has even turned the Serbia left back into a ball-playing centre back with mixed results. Playmaker David Silva looks liberated now that he is playing more centrally. Then there’s Sergio Aguero, a scorer of 11 goals in seven games this season. Guardiola is still asking for more from the striker, saying he has to work harder when City isn’t in possession to help the team. That sums up Guardiola’s demanding approach. As does his removal from the first team of goalkeeper Joe Hart and Toure, who were mainstays for the past six years. They didn’t fit his philosophy Hart for his poor footwork and Toure for his lack of intensity in midfield so they’ve been banished. “I want to have control,” Guardiola said after City beat Manchester United 2-1 this month. He was talking about his ball-possession, but he could so easily have been referring to his grip on the squad. WALCOTT’S REVIVAL Theo Walcott’s future at Arsenal looked bleak after a disappointing last season when he was mostly used off the bench and lost his place in the England squad. Now it appears he’s back to his best. Walcott has started all of Arsenal’s league games, and has scored four goals in his last three games ahead of Sunday’s match at Burnley. The pacey winger credits his improved form to a chat he had with manager Arsene Wenger during the off season. “I want it more than anyone else,” Walcott said. Arsenal is unbeaten in eight games since losing to Liverpool on the opening weekend.last_img read more

LWSC Flexing to Pump 16M Gallons of Water Soon

first_imgThe Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) is to begin pumping 16 million gallons of water a day to Monrovia within the next 18 months, Managing Director Hun-Bu Tulay has confirmed.Addressing the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism regular press briefing in Monrovia yesterday, Mr. Tulay said the corporation is currently providing more than 4 million gallons of water a day to Monrovia, with the prospect of significant increments in the coming months.The corporation is currently operating from a single source at White Plains outside Monrovia, while making additional efforts to identify other sources, Tulay indicated.Within eight months Zwedru, Grand Gedeh, Kakata, Margibi and Buchanan in Grand Bassa County will begin receiving pipe borne water, said MD Tulay.The corporation, he disclosed, is lobbying for funding to conduct feasibility studies for the administrative seats of the remaining 11 counties to receive safe drinking water. If that is achieved, Director Tulay said 70 percent of the population of those cities will have access to safe drinking water. We are also (installing) sanitation facilities (for) the residents to take care of themselves,” he said. With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), three cities – Robertsport, Voinjama and Sanniquellie-are benefiting from the initiative, said Tulay, adding that, “This project has been signed and the sites have been turned over to the contractors.”Director Tulay also disclosed that feasibility studies have been completed for Greenville, Harper and Gbarnga, but the corporation continues to lobby with partners to ensure that the project is implemented nationwide. “We are also in negotiations with the African Development Bank to obtain funding to carry out feasibility studies in 11 other rural cities that have great economic potential. We want to change the lives of people, especially those living in cities and using outside bathrooms,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Green’ Paper laid in Parliament

first_imgWhen the highly-anticipated ‘Green’ Paper for the establishment of the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) was laid in the National Assembly on Wednesday, Finance Minister Winston Jordan declared it was an example of the administration’s commitment to good “governance and accountability.”Jordan told the National Assembly that the Green Paper, which sets out preliminary proposals to stimulate discussion, also points to possible courses of action open to the SWF legislation.Saying he anticipates the proposals would be supported by both sides of the House, given the crucial role the fund would play, he noted stabilisation, savings and domestic development are key objectives of the fund and the fiscal rule options provided. And given the uncertainty surrounding the future of fossil fuels, Jordan emphasised the need for savings to begin from the first day of production.“To achieve this function, revenues will be invested in diversified portfolios comprising financial assets external to domestic, with long investment horizons,” he explained. He added that the paper also focused on why the Fund is necessary, and how it can help to protect Guyana against Dutch Disease.One way of doing that, the minister noted, is by sterilising boom revenues and ensuring that export earnings from petroleum only enter the economy at a rate at which the economy can absorb.In the short-run, resources are overemployed, but this cannot be sustained indefinitely. One way of preventing overheating, according to the paper, is to scale the investment expansion — for example, developing infrastructure — in a constant pace to increase the economy’s productive capacity sustainably.Single fundWhile noting that establishment of the SWF is relatively complex, and there can be substantial administrative costs, the paper noted that if two completely separate funds are established, then this implies that there are two governance structures, two investment policies, and two external audits.At present, the Government is touting the Natural Resources Fund, which is focused on the management of the oil resources but with specific attention to how this will tie in to Government’s Green State Development Strategy, a document that is yet to be completed and presented in Parliament.The Government said in its Green Paper that it would be an unwise decision to spread the limited expertise and experience in fund management in Guyana across two separate funds. The costs of managing two funds would be much higher than those of managing a single fund.As such, the Government considers that it is most efficient to have a single fund (the Natural Resource Fund). It said both economic theory and case studies of Botswana, Norway and Timor-Leste demonstrate that a single fund can effectively achieve multiple objectives.Economic modelling also demonstrates that with the proposed fiscal rule for Guyana — the Economically and Fiscally Sustainable Amount rule — a single fund will lead to economic stabilisation and substantial long-term savings, while avoiding increased administrative costs that establishing multiple funds would entail.ManagementIn relation to management of the Fund, the Green Paper has recommended that Parliament be responsible for passing the Natural Resource Fund Act; approving the Annual Budget, which would include the annual withdrawal from the Natural Resource Fund; and reviewing the Annual Report.“The Ministry of Finance would be responsible for overall management of the NRF, including requested withdrawal in the Annual Budget Proposal; calculating the Fiscally Sustainable Amount; drafting the Investment Mandate; entering into the Operational Agreement with the Bank of Guyana; and drafting the Annual Report and reporting on the NRF through the Annual Budget,” it explained.Also, a Sovereign Investment Committee (SIC) would be responsible for advising the Finance Minister on the investment mandate, and would consist of seven members appointed by the Finance Minister.The SIC would comprise of a representative of the minister; an ex-officio representative nominated by the Minister of Natural Resources; an ex-officio representative nominated by the Governor of the Bank of Guyana; a representative nominated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Guyana; a representative nominated by the Guyana Association of Bankers; a representative nominated by the Leader of the Opposition; and the Senior Investment Adviser and Analyst.The BoG’s role would be the operational manager of the fund, which will manage it in accordance with the operational agreement and investment mandate. The BOG would also draft quarterly reports and annual accounts, procure private managers, and draft management agreements and investment instructions.last_img read more

Kal Penn ready to turn teacher

first_imgKumar is going from White Castle to the Ivy League. Kal Penn, known for his role as Kumar Patel in the 2004 cult classic “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” will be a guest instructor at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia during the spring 2008 semester, school officials announced Monday. “The Asian-American Studies Program is delighted that Kalpen Modi, aka Kal Penn, chose our program to host his teaching engagement at Penn,” program director Grace Kao said. “Mr. Modi is one of the leading Asian-American actors of his generation and is particularly aware of how his racial and ethnic identification has affected his professional experiences.” Penn, 29, will teach two undergraduate courses, tentatively titled, “Images of Asian-Americans in the Media” and “Contemporary American Teen Films.” Students can enroll in the courses as Asian-American studies or as cinema studies in Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences, Kao said. Penn co-starred with John Cho, who played Harold Lee, in “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.” His screen credits also include “The Namesake,” “Epic Movie,” “Van Wilder” and “Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj.” He recently finished shooting “Harold & Kumar 2” with Cho. – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Croatia stand between Mbappe’s France and World Cup glory

first_img0Shares0000Mario Mandzukic (left) and Croatia will try to stop the electric Kylian Mbappe when they face France in the World Cup final © AFP / Gabriel BOUYS, Johannes EISELEMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jul 14 – A month on and 63 games later, the 2018 World Cup reaches its climax on Sunday as a young France side spearheaded by Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann look to win the trophy for the second time when they take on Croatia in Moscow.It is a final very few people could have anticipated four weeks ago, when the competition in Russia was just beginning. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar have all gone home. So have the traditional powers of the international game — Germany, Brazil and Argentina.Instead it is a gifted French side with the second-youngest squad at the tournament, embodied by the lightning-quick Mbappe, who face a Croatian team inspired by Luka Modric, arguably the finest midfielder in the world at the moment.Perhaps many neutrals will be disappointed that it has not come down to a clash between two genuine giants of the game, or that there is no South American presence.It is just the second time that none of Brazil, Germany, Italy or Argentina have made the final, after Spain’s win over the Netherlands in 2010.A tournament that will be remembered for the colourful presence of hordes of Latin American supporters has a final between two European sides after the continent exerted its power in the latter stages.But this is still the World Cup final, and for France there is the possibility to join Argentina and Uruguay in winning the trophy for the second time, after 1998.Back then, Didier Deschamps was the captain. Now he is the coach, and he can become just the third man to win the trophy as a player and a manager, after Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer.– ‘The game of our lives’ –“A World Cup final, it’s a bit like a boyhood dream coming true,” said midfielder Blaise Matuidi.Antoine Griezmann and France are aiming to make up for the pain of losing the Euro 2016 final © AFP / CHRISTOPHE SIMON“We are so close to the trophy that we want to touch it. This is the game of our lives.”Beaten on penalties by Italy in the 2006 final, France’s hunger is all the greater after the agony of their defeat as hosts against Portugal in the Euro 2016 final.“It serves a lesson to us, and it means we know what it is to play in a final,” added Matuidi.Half of France’s team is different now, however, with Mbappe having burst onto the scene. His explosive performance in the 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16 lit up the competition, but apart from that France have played like a Deschamps side, with the emphasis on defence.Les Bleus laboured through their group, beating Australia and Peru by the odd goal and drawing with Denmark in the only goalless game of the tournament.They have since proved too strong for the Argentines, Uruguay and Belgium, and they are rightly favourites in the final, which is a repeat of the 1998 semi-final.Back then, two Lilian Thuram goals sunk a Croatia team playing in their first World Cup as an independent nation. Twenty years on, this side have written their own history and the nation of just over four million people is the smallest to reach the final since Uruguay in 1950.– Exhausting –After winning all three group games, outclassing Argentina, they have beaten Denmark and Russia on penalties and defeated England in extra-time in the semi-finals.It has been a gruelling, exhausting run for Zlatko Dalic’s team, and they must rouse themselves for one last effort.Can Luka Modric and Croatia rouse themselves for one last effort in Sunday’s final? © AFP / Odd ANDERSEN“We took the difficult path, probably we will be the only team at a World Cup to have played eight games to get to a final if you tally up all the minutes,” admitted Dalic.“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It has been difficult for us but I am sure we will find the strength and motivation.”The great, cavernous Luzhniki, by a bend in the Moscow River, will be the scene of the drama, but the biggest celebrations will take place on the streets of the winning country.And the Croatians are confident most of the world will be supporting them.“I have this feeling there will be hundreds of millions rooting for us on Sunday,” said Ivan Rakitic.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

$11.8 million award in train crash

Metrolink previously settled with Kilpatrick and some two dozen other injured passengers in an agreement whose terms are confidential. Another passenger, 76-year-old Grace Kirkness of Santa Clarita, died in a hospital 15 days after the crash. Universal Studios in court said the crash was the result of what a federal investigation called “confusing” traffic signals and roadway where the Metrolink tracks pass the intersection of Buena Vista Street and San Fernando Road. Truck driver Jacek Wysocki, who was employed by a Universal subsidiary and was killed in the crash, had stopped for a red left-turn arrow at the intersection, the National Transportation Safety Board said. Then he drove onto the tracks when the arrow began to flash at the train’s approach, the NTSB said. Burbank officials said the intersection signals met state standards and said Wysocki was at fault for driving around the crossing gates. chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com (661) 267-5742 PASADENA – A former Newhall attorney crippled when a Metrolink train crashed into a movie-studio truck that drove onto the tracks was awarded $11.8 million from Universal Studios. A Pasadena jury awarded the money Friday to Jennifer Kilpatrick, who must use a walker or a wheelchair because of the injuries she suffered in January 2003 when the train derailed after plowing at 80 mph into the truck at a Burbank intersection. Kilpatrick, who was on her way to work when the crash happened, now lives in Las Vegas. The jury award was announced by Kilpatrick’s attorney, Los Angeles attorney Jerome Ringler, who is also lead counsel representing passengers injured in Metrolink crashes in Glendale and Placentia. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
