Liverpool star confirms six week injury layoff

first_img 2 2 Martin Skrtel limps off with hamstring tear Although Liverpool’s defensive record is one of the worst in the top half of the Barclays Premier League, the loss of the influential centre-half is a bit of unwelcome news for manager Jurgen Klopp, who is without a win in his last four matches.Skrtel has been an ever-present for the Reds in the league this season, but now he is expected to miss the upcoming fixtures against Leicester, Sunderland, West Ham, Stoke, Exeter, Arsenal, Manchester United, Norwich and Stoke again in the Capital One Cup.If Dejan Lovren does not recover from a knee injury in time for Liverpool’s Boxing Day clash against table-toppers Leicester, Kolo Toure is likely to be drafted in for his first league start of the season alongside Mamadou Sakho. Liverpool have been dealt a big blow with the news that defender Martin Skrtel will be out for six weeks because of a torn hamstring.Skrtel limped off in the first half of Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat at Watford on Sunday and scans have revealed the centre-back will be out until February.Alongside a picture of a lion, the Slovakian 31-year-old wrote on Instagram: “After all rumours going around,i want to say the time i will spend on sideline wont be 3 months…after i suffered tear in my hamstring and tendon i will be out for 6 weeks…i will work hard on my recovery and will do everything to come back as soon as possible and even stronger than before!thanks for your support.”last_img read more

House passes rail-safety act inked by local

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.She said HR 2095 “will make communities located near railroad lines much safer.” Napolitano’s office said it sees no hurdle in the Senate passing the companion bill. Napolitano’s bill contains provisions regarding training standards for inspectors, a public-safety program and the prevention of outsourcing train inspections to Mexico. In the 2004 incident, Union Pacific train cars smashed into a home in the 3800 block of Croton Avenue in unincorporated Whittier bordering Pico Rivera. People in the neighborhood at the time said the 380-car train sent a huge cloud of dust into the air and the train cars were folded like an accordion. They also described the sound of the train as if an airplane were rumbling through their neighborhood. Authorities said one person suffered minor injuries and about 200 people were evacuated. It also cut off electricity to 1,700 people and brought traffic on the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway to a halt. The bill’s major provisions include doubling the number of Federal Railroad Administration safety inspectors and the approval of $6 million for Operation Lifesaver, a nonprofit public education program to end collisions, deaths and injuries at highway-rail grade crossings and on railroad rights of way. “This bill addressed deficiencies by improving track safety, grade-crossing safety and whistle-blower protections, railroad fatigue and ensuring enforcement,” said Napolitano, a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials. In June 2003, 31 runaway cars were intentionally derailed by Union Pacific in Commerce after the cars got loose in a switching yard in Montclair and began down the track toward Los Angeles. The freight cars carrying lumber and paper careened off the tracks and several of them slammed into houses on the street then called Davie Avenue. No one was killed, but 13 people were hospitalized with injuries. Three houses were destroyed and five others were damaged. About 150 people were evacuated because of broken gas and water lines. Authorities estimated the derailment caused $2.4 million in damages. Residents and officials from nearby Montebello demanded Union Pacific increase safety measures. Lawsuits from more than 40 people were resolved last June, but no monetary award was disclosed. The next step in the process is for the Senate to take up S 1889, which is the companion bill to HR 2095. After passage of the Senate version, both bills will be referred to a Conference Committee to resolve differences between the two. sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON, D.C. – The House of Representatives, by a vote of 377-38, passed the Federal Railroad Safety Improvement Act of 2007. If the bill’s companion passes the Senate and is signed into law by President Bush, it will mark the first time since 1994 that a rail-safety program has been authorized by the federal government. Rep. Grace F. Napolitano, D-Norwalk, authored HR 2095 in response to Union Pacific Railroad derailments in north Whittier in October 2004 and in Commerce on a track running through Montebello and the unincorporated area near Whittier in June 2003. “There were five derailments in or near my district that damaged homes and businesses, threatened public safety, and caused fear and anxiety along the Alameda Corridor East,” she said. last_img read more

England: FA yet to be contact Allardyce, Bruce says links are ‘flattering’

first_img2 Sam Allardyce is yet to be contacted by the Football Association amid reports that he would be interviewed for the vacant England manager’s job this week.The 61-year-old Sunderland boss has left his club’s pre-season training camp in Austria as speculation mounts that he has been identified as one of a series of candidates to replace Roy Hodgson, although it is understood his departure is connected to a potential signing.United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann and Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe also figure prominently in the list of potential candidates said to have been drawn up by the FA’s technical director Dan Ashworth, chief executive Martin Glenn and vice-chairman David Gill as they seek a replacement for Hodgson, who fell on his sword following a desperately disappointing Euro 2016 finals campaign.Allardyce was interviewed for the same job a little more than 10 years ago, only for Steve McClaren to be appointed, although he has enhanced his reputation since, most recently by preserving Sunderland’s Premier League status at the end of last season.talkSPORT EXCLUSIVE: ‘I can see why he’s favourite’ – Micky Gray backs Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce for England jobReports have suggested he had already held preliminary talks with the FA, but it is believed the former Bolton, Blackburn and West Ham boss is unaware of any impending appointment this week.Allardyce signed a two-year deal with the Black Cats in October last year and therefore has more than a year of his existing contract remaining.However, claims that he has a get-out clause which would allow him to walk away from the Stadium of Light have been dismissed by sources on Wearside.Allardyce has made no secret of his disappointment at being pipped by McClaren a decade ago, or his ambition to take up the challenge of international management one day.In the meantime, he is throwing himself into the task of trying to prevent his current employers from finding themselves thrust into a fifth successive relegation battle by building upon the foundations established last season.The work he did to drag the club out of trouble once again was hugely appreciated not only by chairman Ellis Short, but by supporters who are hopeful of a brighter future under a man who had previously played for the club. Sam Allardyce: The 61-year-old is bookies’ favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson 2 Another man to have been linked with the England post is Hull’s Steve Bruce. Alan Shearer pushed his name forward on Monday and the former Manchester United defender said he was honoured by the talk.“It’s highly flattering and I’m honoured to be linked with it,” he told the Hull Daily Mail.“Whether or not it goes any further than that… It’s the pinnacle isn’t it? To manage your country, there’s no bigger job.“It’s all speculation. There’s a lot of people who have written nice things and I’m grateful for that.”last_img read more

WOMAN ONLY REALISED SHE ABUSED CHILD AFTER SHE DID CHILD PROTECTION COURSE

first_imgJudge gave the woman a suspended jail sentence.WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT CONTAINED: A woman only realised she had sexually abused a young child when she undertook a child protection course.The woman appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court yesterday facing two charges of sexual abuse against the girl in the mid 2000s.The court heard how the two incidents took place while the child, who was 10 or 11 years old, was in the care of the accused woman. In the first incident the woman, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim,was invited over to the woman’s home.After watching television, the accused woman kissed the child, rubbed her breast and then rubbed her own breasts.The little girl told her mother what had happened but when approached by the child’s mother, the accused woman said she had only been playing with her.On the second occasion, the girl’s father had been forced to leave his daughter with the woman as his wife had been in a car crash and he had no babysitter.This time the child was ordered to take a bath and the woman rubbed the child’s vaginal area with a flannel for five minutes.The woman told the court that she only appreciated the seriousness of the incident when she undertook a child protection course and disclosed the abuse.The incidents were then followed-up on by support services and the Gardai.A victim impact statement on the child revealed how the victim is a very changed girl as a result of the attacks.She stays at home a lot and gets upset very easily.She is still unable to develop relationships with boys and remembers the abuse when she takes a bath or shower.The court also heard how the accused woman also suffered prolonged sexual abuse and became pregnant at the age of 12 before miscarrying.She was abused sexually, emotionally and physically by siblings, her mother’s partners and people who came into her house.A doctor who treated her said she had suffered “the most grave and prolonged case of sexual abuse that I have come across.”Judge John Aylmer said he put the offences on mid-range of seriousness but at the lower end of mid-range.He said he did not want to overlook the impact on the victim so he was imposing a custodial sentence but suspended it in light of mitigating factors including the guilty plea that saved victim from cross examination.He sentenced the woman to 18 months in jail for each of the two offences to run concurrently but suspended them for two yearsHe also ordered that she have no unsupervised contact with any person under 18 years of age or any vulnerable adult.She was also ordered to engage in a treatment programme for sexual offenders and answer all questions truthfully in relation to her offending while remaining on the sexual offenders register for a statutory five years.WOMAN ONLY REALISED SHE ABUSED CHILD AFTER SHE DID CHILD PROTECTION COURSE was last modified: December 10th, 2015 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:Childcourtdonegalsex abusewomanlast_img read more

LAST GASP MURPHY POINT SNATCHES A DRAW FOR DONEGAL AGAINST MEATH

first_imgClose marking from Meath’s Eoghan Harringtton makes hard work for Donegal Captain, Michael Murphy who scored a last gasp point to make it Donegal 1-12 Meath 1-12 in Ballybofey. Photo Brian McDaid/Cristeph.A determined second half display culminating in a last-gasp point by Michael Murphy saw Donegal grab a draw against a determined Meath at MacCumhaill Park this afternoon.The visitors weren’t given a chance coming to the North-West for this league encounter today but their panel had different ideas.In fact, they raced to a 0-7 to 0-2 lead at one stage putting it up to Donegal. Jim McGuinness’ team, helped by a goal by Frank McGlynn, managed to narrow the gap to just two points, going in 1-7 to 1-5 at the interval.The league leaders were suffering in the middle of the park and the manager tried to address this my bringing on Neil Gallagher for Rory Kavanagh at half-time.He also added some penetration up front by drafting in Darach O’Connor in place of Brick Molloy.It appeared to have the desired effect as Donegal began to pick off the points. But Meath refused to wave the white flag and points from Graham Reilly and Michael Newman kept them in contention.In a nip and tuck second half, both sets of forward swapped points and the advantage as they raced to the final whistle in front of a large crowd. Donegal fluffed two goal chances too.Reilly looked as if he had done enough to secure the points for Meath putting them ahead 1-12 to 1-11.However, Murphy was given a late free but when it popped it short, you sensed that Donegal had blown their chance and their 100% league record.Meath must have been kicking themselves when the big Glenswilly man got yet another chance fro a free to level the scores. This time he didn’t miss.The visitors will feel short-changed but Donegal will draw encouragement from a game in which they had to dig deep.LAST GASP MURPHY POINT SNATCHES A DRAW FOR DONEGAL AGAINST MEATH was last modified: March 9th, 2014 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:donegaldrawMeathlast_img read more

Darwin Blinders Cause Blunders

first_img(Visited 338 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Darwinism blinds the eyes of scientists, making them think contrary evidence supports evolution.Science could improve its credibility enormously by eliminating all references to Darwinian evolution. To atheists who equate evolution with science, or call Darwinism the “greatest theory in the history of science,” such a statement comes as a shock and an outrage. But as the following news stories show, Charlie puts blinders on the eyes of scientists looking at the data. Some findings go completely opposite what any clear-thinking Darwinist (if there is such a person) should expect, and yet they will still say “It evolved.” Look and think!Sleeping on the JobNeural sleep patterns emerged at least 450 million years ago (Science Daily). Evolutionists will often notice a first appearance of some complex trait in a fossil, use their moyboy assumptions to stuff it into a fake timeline, and then say it “emerged.” This is an emergency.Researchers have found that neural signatures in sleeping zebrafish are analogous to those of humans, suggesting that the brain activity evolved at least 450 million years ago, before any creatures crawled out of the ocean….“This moves the evolution of neural signatures of sleep back quite a few years,” said postdoctoral scholar Louis Leung, PhD.The young postdoc must have become addicted to Darwine early. A clear head would see this as evidence contrary to evolution, because neural signatures for sleep are complex. In Darwin’s theory, the neural circuits would have to arise by mistake (mutation and selection). Before, evolutionists would have wondered how they “emerged.” Now, they have to make them “emerge” in a shorter time period. Why does Darwin score on this foul?Drunk During the ConcertSymphony of Genes (University of Wien). The headline looks poised to speak about intelligent design. After all, symphonies are produced by intelligent minds. But no! This article praises Darwin for inventing complex gene networks by chance. And to add stupidity to fallacy, the article states openly that the evidence indicates that the complex gene networks were there from the beginning, contrary to Darwinian expectations. Readers should gasp at such credulity. One sign of mental illness is feeling joy in folly:One of the most exciting discoveries in genome research was that the last common ancestor of all multicellular animals – which lived about 600 million years ago – already possessed an extremely complex genome.Pause to gasp that these evolutionists have not repented and come to intelligent design yet. They were actually excited to be wrong! Prepare for another gasp:Many of the ancestral genes can still be found in modern day species (e.g., human). However, it has long been unclear whether the arrangement of these genes in the genome also had a certain function. In a recent study in Nature Ecology and Evolution, the biologists led by Oleg Simakov and Ulrich Technau show that not only individual genes but also these gene arrangements in the genome have played a key role in the course of animal evolution.The paper referred to—published in Nature Ecology & Evolution—begins with an emotional expression: “The level of conservation of ancient metazoan gene order (synteny) is remarkable.” So, shouldn’t they ditch evolution and become creationists? They can’t. They are too drunk on Darwine to realize their addiction. When they are not showing that gene networks are conserved (unevolved) in the paper, they are speculating about how things might have evolved.Harmful Diet of Burnt AssumptionsOur ancestors may have begun barbecuing 1.5 million years ago (New Scientist). Typical of Darwinists, writer Colin Barras gets excited when his assumptions are shown to be wrong. Now he and his fellow DODOs have another “emerge”-ncy on their hands: evidence for human ability to control fire earlier than they previously thought. Isn’t that wonderful? All Darwinians should get excited about how wrong they were.Did cooking make us human? New evidence from Kenya suggests early hominins were roasting meat over fires 1.5 million years ago. The discovery pushes back evidence of fire use by hundreds of thousands of years, and lends weight to the idea that cooked food helped trigger the evolution of big-brained humans.“It’s very exciting,” says Sarah Hlubik at Rutgers University in New Jersey. “This is the oldest site to date with evidence of human ancestors using fire.”Backyard barbecue dads can get really excited about this, too. They can tell their doctors not to worry about all that singed red meat they’re stuffing down their gullets. ‘I’m just trying to evolve a bigger brain,’ they can allege. ‘New Scientist says that’s what happened to our ape-like ancestors! Cooking made us human!’Evolutionary Rules EvolveJurassic shift: Changing the rules of evolution (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg). Darwinism is so flexible, you can change the rules on the fly. Wasn’t the environment supposed to be the main driver for evolution? It’s OK to change the rules, as long as Darwin’s totalitarian reign over biology is not threatened.For more than 150 years, scientists have debated whether the success of organisms is mainly down to environmental factors such as climate change or whether — as advocated by Charles Darwin — interaction between species has a significantly more important role to play. A British-German study involving palaeobiologist Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kießling from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has now shown that the influence of environmental factors was considerably greater at the early stages of the evolution of animal life before becoming significantly less important 170 million years ago.If they can change the rules like that, Darwinism can’t lose. It’s like Calvinball.Darwinball is, indeed, very much like Calvinball. Bill Watterson’s newer incarnation of Dennis the Menace, young Calvin, holding his stuffed tiger Hobbes, explains how you play Calvinball. Darwin uses a similar ditty: “Other science games are all such a bore! / They’ve gotta have rules, and they gotta keep score! / Darwinball is better by far! / It’s never the same! It’s always bizarre! / You don’t need a team or a referee! / You know that it’s great, ’cause it’s named after me!”One major difference is that Darwinball players never have to sing the Very Sorry Song, because they are all scurvy scalawags to begin with.Video Playerhttps://crev.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/darwin-15-second.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more
