Wigan are not interested in McEachran swap deal – report

first_imgChelsea have been told by Wigan that they can have Victor Moses for £10m, according to the Daily MirrorIt is claimed the Latics want a straightforward fee for the forward and are not interested in an exchange deal involving Josh McEachran.The Mirror also report that Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is closing in on the £7m signing of Marseille’s Spain Under-21 right-back Cesar Azpilicueta.The Daily Mail say Jose Bosingwa, recently released by the Blues, has been made an offer by Anzhi Makhachkala.Meanwhile, QPR could avoid paying a fee for Junior Hoilett, with Blackburn ready to offer Jamie Mackie up to £2m a year – making him the highest-paid player in the Championship – to go to Ewood Park in exchange, the Mirror claim.Hoilett looks set to reject Newcastle and Borussia Monchengladbach in favour of a lucrative deal at Rangers, said to be worth £50,000-a-week.The Canadian is out of contract but, at 22, cannot move on a free transfer, so Rovers will be entitled to compensation unless they accept an offer.And it is suggested that although Mackie is not overly keen to leave Loftus Road, the cash on offer at Blackburn may persuade him to go there.The Mail say Rangers are trying to secure a work permit for Hoilett before completing his signing, while The Sun claim the club are interested in Getafe right-back Miguel Torres.This page is regularly updated.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Klaasen, Butorac claim title in Memphis

first_img18 February 2014 South African tennis star Raven Klaasen continued his outstanding start to 2014 when he and partner Eric Butorac teamed up to capture the doubles title at the US National Indoor Tennis Championships in Memphis, USA, on Sunday. Seeded second, Butorac and Klaasen upset the top seeds and world number one pairing of Bob and Mike Bryan 6-4 6-4 in the final.Second successive win It was their second successive win over the 15-time Grand Slam winners, following their upset victory over the Bryans in the third round of the Australian Open, where Klaasen and Butorac went on to finish as runners-up. The Bryans were the defending champions and also won the Memphis title in 2001 and 2004. Titles After three victories in 2013, the Memphis title was Klaasen’s fourth, while it was a second win in Memphis for Butorac and a 15th ATP Tour title overall. Last year, the South African/American pair won the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur. Earlier in the year, playing with Johan Brunstrom, Klaasen lifted titles in Metz and at the Open de Nice Cote d’Azur.‘Feels really good’ Speaking after claiming victory in Memphis, Klaasen said winning “feels really good”. “This is my first time in Memphis and playing in front of that crowd in the final was exciting for us. The Bryan brothers have a great record everywhere you go. We got off to a great start in the match and were fortunate to keep it going for the entire match.” Butorac added: “To get a win over the Bryans solidifies what we did in Australia, and we’re on the right path to being one of the top teams in the world. We need to keep improving and getting better.”Rankings As a pair, Klaasen and Butorac are currently ranked second behind Australian Open champions Lukasz Kubot and Robert Lindstedt in 2014. Klaasen is up to 30th in the individual doubles rankings, with Butorac one place behind him. After winning in Malaysia at the end of September 2013, the South African star’s world ranking was 46th. The Bryans, whom Klaasen and Butorac have now beaten twice in succession are tied for first place at the top of the standings. The Americans are the top seeds at the Delray Beach Open this week, while Klaasen and Butorac are the second seeds. SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

The Four Most Dangerous and Avoidable Accidents on a Film Set

first_imgFilmmaking is all about pushing limits; however, failure to consider risks can cause injuries. Here are the most important safety concerns to keep in mind.As wonderful as your screenplay or viral video idea is, it’s not worth an injury. Yet, every year, dozens of people become seriously injured by accidents on set. Most of the time, these are preventable injuries caused by negligence and ignorance. An injury can not only derail your shoot, it can also end your career.Filmmaking engenders a kind of optimism and craziness where it seems that normal rules don’t apply. The entire industry is based on crazy new stunts no-one has seen before. So, it’s not surprising that dangerous situations arise.If you’re the director or producer, it’s critical that you establish that safety comes first because, without it, everything you’ve built is at risk.Let’s take a look at the biggest dangers — and how to avoid them.WeightI’ve put this first because it’s the most common mistake — and probably where most injuries occur. Setting up a C-stand is something people do on their first day on a film set. As a result, it’s taken for granted that it’s an elementary skill. You don’t need to add any lights or grip to a C-stand to make it dangerous — it’s already capable of killing or maiming someone. If the knuckle isn’t sighted fully, or if the arm is on the wrong side, it will loosen with weight and come crashing down. Most C-stand injuries occur when someone goes to move them, and they’re not aware how much weight or torque is involved.Never remove a sandbag from a C-stand until you know why it’s there. Don’t try and shift a C-stand or light stand that is plugged in or extended.Anytime you’re putting lights (or other equipment) above waist level, you need to maintain a margin of safety. Only people who understand grip should be putting things up and taking them down. It’s up to you to make sure every tool on set, not just the camera, gets handled by people trained in using that particular tool.ElectricityIt’s no surprise that power is next on this list. You cannot make a film without light, and there is no light without power. However, with the advent of LEDs, lights have become cooler and safer, which also means that more filmmakers are acting as their own gaffers without proper training.Image via ponsulak.A common way to get zapped on set is by damaged equipment — lights that have been treated too roughly and wires that have become exposed. Unprotected extension cords driven over by a scissor lift will electrocute the next person who touches them. Power is deadly, and unless you know what you’re doing, don’t mess with it.FallsResearching this video, I found an article in the Los Angeles Times that outlined 205 production accidents in Hollywood from 1990 to 2014. By far, the most common cause was a fall. Falling off a ladder, a scissor lift, a scaffold, or a rooftop: unfortunately, these accidents occur more often than they should. People exercise caution in their daily lives, yet on set, if people are waiting or if something’s running behind schedule, people take chances they normally wouldn’t and end up injured.Treat climbing as a two-person job. Have someone spot you (or act as the spotter yourself), and don’t try to access something with the wrong tool. If you can’t reach it from a ladder, go find a longer ladder or find another way to access what you need. Balancing on your tip toes while trying to rig a heavy light is a great way to fall and spend the rest of the shoot in a cast.Fatigue — The Real KillerThe last thing I want to talk about is probably a factor in every film set injury: fatigue. Long hours dull our senses and impair our abilities to assess risks.When people lack sleep, or just some much-needed downtime, they become an injury waiting to happen. Many fatigue-related injuries don’t get reported because they occur on the way home from a shoot.As filmmakers, we have to get over the idea that not getting sleep and working in a daze is somehow part of the job. You can only be a creative problem solver — and maintain a safe work environment — when you’re rested. It’s up to us to stand up to the producer when we’re pushing the limits.Filmmaking is a long game. The only way we can make the films we want to make, and follow our dreams as storytellers, is by working for decades at what we love. This means taking care of ourselves, and those around us, so we can reach our full potential.So make it an objective to be safe out there!Cover image via gnepphoto.Looking for more articles on the film and video industry?
