first_imgGerman football wunderkind Youssoufa MoukokoBerlin, Germany | AFP | A German football wunderkind, who only turned 14 on Tuesday, says his goal is to one day lift the Champions League trophy with Borussia Dortmund and win the Ballon d’Or.Burly teenager Youssoufa Moukoko, a goal machine in German youth football, is already well on his way to a professional contract with Dortmund, the current Bundesliga leaders.He has scored 22 goals in 12 games for their Under-17s this season — including hat-tricks on four occasions — and hit four goals, as well as contributing two assists, in a 10-0 romp against Hennef last month.“If I am honest, my aim is to be a professional footballer with Dortmund, lift the Champions League with Borussia and win the Ballon d’Or,” Moukoko told German magazine Sport Bild in his first interview.His breakthrough last season was staggering.As a 13-year-old, he netted 40 goals in 28 games to help Dortmund’s juniors win the Under-17 league title, scored the winning goal in June’s 3-2 cup final win over Bayern Munich. He also became a Germany Under-16 international.However, it is at least three years before Moukoko can make his Bundesliga debut as the minimum age is 17, and then only with special exemption.Even though he is much younger than most of his team-mates, defences struggle to cope with the robust Cameroon-born teenager. However, doubts about his true age persist.According to his official certificate, issued at the German consulate in Yaounde, his date of birth is November 20, 2004, but he admits the constant speculation over its authenticity annoys him.“Last season was hard for me, with that whole story. I can’t do anything about the fact things have gone so well,” said Moukoko.Nevertheless, the German wunderkind has tried to play down expectations on his young shoulders.“I have plenty of time to develop. The next thing I want to do is play for the (Dortmund) Under-19 team,” he said.“We’ll see after that, not everything has to go so fast.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgThe UK has been one of the worst-hit countries in the global pandemic, with the government officially recording nearly 32,000 deaths of people who had tested positive for COVID-19.“We are just people too,” tweeted Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell on Sunday.There is also disagreement over where the remaining 92 matches of the season would be played.League chiefs believed they would only get the government’s green light to restart if matches were held at a limited number of neutral venues to reduce the medical, police, security and broadcast personnel required.A number of clubs near the bottom of the table have spoken openly of their opposition to the plan as they believe it would increase the risk of being relegated.“With all these compromises and health risks we are asked to finish a competition that bears no resemblance to the one we started,” Watford’s chairman and chief executive Scott Duxbury told the club’s website.Those higher up the table are also concerned at the prospect of having to reimburse sponsors who have paid for naming rights on their stadiums.“I think everybody would prefer to play home and away if at all possible. And I think it’s clear to see that some clubs feel more strongly about that than others,” added Masters.“We are in contact with the authorities and listening to that advice while also representing club views in those discussions.”The prospect of appeasing the clubs struggling at the bottom by ruling out relegation this season also appears over after the English Football Association rejected that idea and told the Premier League that final standings must be based on “sporting merit” if no more games can be played.Masters admitted the Premier League had for the first time held discussions on how the league would be decided if matches cannot restart, but said no definitive formula had been approved.“It was the first time we discussed curtailment – it’s still our aim to finish the season obviously but it’s important to discuss all the options with our clubs,” he said.“No conclusions were reached on any other models. Those are future conversations we may need to have.”Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Premier League clubs received a boost to their hopes of completing the season on Monday as the government published a “roadmap” that could see the return of elite sport in England from June 1.As the 20 English top-flight clubs met for further talks on “Project Restart”, ministers announced plans to ease the coronavirus lockdown.Under step two of that process, which cannot begin any earlier than June 1, sporting events would be allowed “to take place behind closed doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact”.Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he believed the return of sport on TV would “provide a much-needed boost to national morale.”Supporters face a long wait to be allowed to attend matches, though, with the latest guidelines recognising a return to sport in front of a crowd “may only be fully possible significantly later depending on the reduction in numbers of infections”.Premier League clubs had been planning for a return to action no earlier than the week beginning June 8.Before the resumption of matches can be considered, protocols need to be agreed on how to return to group training safely and on how the Premier League would deal with positive tests.Brighton confirmed on Sunday that a third member of their squad had tested positive.Cases have also been found in squads in Germany, where the Bundesliga is due to restart this weekend, as well as Italy, Spain and Portugal in recent days.“We have protocols created and reviewed, we have a testing company appointed, but the important consultation with players and managers is the next step,” said Premier League CEO Richard Masters.“No decisions will be made until after we have talked to players and managers and those meetings are scheduled for later this week.”– ‘We are just people too’ –Players have voiced their concerns at the prospect of being rushed back into training and, eventually, into playing a contact sport at a time when the rest of the public remain encouraged to abide by social-distancing guidelines.last_img read more

first_img There’s no stopping Tomasz Anderson! He’s just won his seventh title on the US college circuit – only a week after his sixth win. The 22-year-old international is a student at Jacksonville State University and his latest victory came in their home event, the Grub Mart Intercollegiate at Silver Lakes in Alabama. Anderson, from Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire, shot 71 69 70 and tied for medallist honours with Western Kentucky’s Brandon Beckham on six-under par. Anderson shared fifth place after two rounds but his 70 was the best score in the field over the final 18 holes. He also won this event last year and his seventh win extends his own college record of career victories. Anderson (image © Leaderboard Photography) is a member of the England Golf men’s squad and is in the initial GB&I Walker Cup squad.

first_img(Visited 782 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 More Ice Age fossils have turned up in a Los Angeles subway tunnel, and there are surprises.“Trove of Ice-Age Fossils Found in LA Subway Dig” writes Martin Macias Jr for the Courthouse News in Los Angeles on March 4. A video clip in the local KTLA 5 News begins by calling the La Brea area, with its famous tar pits, as “the largest collection of Ice Age fossils in the entire world.” New fossils were exposed as excavators dug for a new subway line. They found a Columbian mammoth (the largest kind), and fossils of dire wolves, camels, horses, bison, saber-toothed cats, giant ground sloths and many other of the species on display in the Page Museum of fossil discoveries.Mammoth hunt. Mural at La Brea Tar Pits museum. But when?Macias indicates why this particular treasure trove of fossils is significant:More than 500 fossils of Ice Age beasts, including saber-toothed cats, giant ground sloths and huge mammoths, have been discovered in recent months by crews tunneling a new Los Angeles subway branch, paleontologists revealed Monday.The trove of fossils, which date back to the Pleistocene Epoch, have also challenged beliefs previously held by paleontologists who study the beasts that called the LA basin home millions of years before the region was covered by a vast ocean.The report lacks details about the “challenged beliefs” concerning the fossils, but Macias points to unexpected aspects of their burial. Typically, the story was that animals got trapped in sticky tar. Not these, though:Harris also said it was rare for paleontologists to find fossils of saber-toothed cats and dire wolves at La Cienega station, a site which was not a tar pit, since the beasts didn’t usually live in large communities.Macias relays a hypothesis about what buried these animals:John Harris, who leads Cogstone’s laboratory work identifying fossils, said in an interview that partial sloth skeleton was discovered in sediments that contained fragments of charcoal, indicating the beast was preserved in a mudslide that likely resulted from an ancient wildfire.People driving the busy streets of west Los Angeles, with high-rise buildings all around, are oblivious to the rich community of large animals that once called this land home.Fitting the La Brea fossils into either an evolutionary or creationary scenario is challenging. For creationists, because they need to decide if these are pre-flood, mid-flood or post-flood deposits. For evolutionists, because today’s world is impoverished of the magnificent beasts that roamed the world. The biosphere has devolved since then in terms of species richness. Also, the Stuff Happens Law would never create these large, highly complex creatures, let alone a living cell.Noteworthy is the fact that most of the bones are badly disarticulated (separated and jumbled), and some human remains have been found. Another surprise is that most of the fossils (both of birds and mammals) are predators. Dire wolves are the most numerous of all! The facts bespeak unusual circumstances in the way these bones were deposited and possibly transported. Most geologists (both creationary and evolutionary) accept that the sea inundated the Los Angeles basin, which was once apparently a grassland when the megafauna were live. Now fresh-looking fossils of clams, sand dollars (echinoderms) and shark’s teeth can be found throughout Los Angeles county. When these events occurred, and in what sequence, are puzzles still challenging theories. If you go to the Page Museum, though, beware the evolutionary tales. Don’t swallow the ending diorama that shows a simplistic, ridiculous panorama of evolution from bacteria to astronaut. Pity the schoolchildren who pass through this museum and only hear that “stuff happens” explains everything.From slime to astronaut: made simple, given billions of years of Darwinian Stuff Happens.

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market As one of the lucky recipients of the Cr-48 Chrome OS test notebook, I’ve been experimenting with how well I can unwire to live “in the cloud,” as they say. If you’re unfamiliar, the Cr-48 notebook computers are being used in Google’s Pilot program for its new browser-based computer operating system named for its Web browser, Google Chrome.Built on top of Linux, the feel of Chrome OS is that of just using a Web browser running on a small notebook computer. This leads to some obvious limitations, of course. For example, how do you transfer files from a USB device to Google Chrome OS? The short answer: you don’t. But I found an exception just the other day – I managed to access photos on a USB Flash drive in a surprising way.No One Uses USB Flash Drives, Right? Then, you’ll be into the Chrome OS file system. Find the Media folder. (Sorry, I didn’t have any way to screenshot these since I was now no longer in a webpage where I could access my “screenshot taking” Chrome extensions). TA-DA! Cloud workaround!Now a word of warning: this process didn’t always go smoothly, Chrome OS would report unresponsive Web pages (I clicked “Wait” and all was well), the Flash plugin would crash and sometimes, the photo wouldn’t even upload the first time, but the second time it would. Obviously, this feature isn’t ready for primetime. But in a pinch, it worked.Enjoy! Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud computing#Google#How To#web sarah perez I knew that plugging in a USB flash drive to my Chrome OS would get me nowhere. As a Web-only operating system, Chrome OS isn’t designed (for now, at least), to access external storage. According to Google’s own Help documentation, the USB port on the notebook’s right side allows you to connect the “most common devices” including things like “external monitors with VGA connections, USB mice and keyboards, headsets, and microphones.”Not USB flash drives. I mean, really – who uses that stuff anymore?Well, I guess I do, although not by choice. This particular USB flash drive was given to me by another family member and it had photos of my daughter’s 1st birthday party on it. In Google’s world, those photos should have been uploaded to the “cloud” – Google Docs, perhaps, Picasa Web Albums, maybe or a competitor’s service like Flickr, Facebook, etc. Too bad grandma didn’t get the memo about the cloud. What to do now?Using Facebook to Get to USB Storage from Chrome OSSurprisingly, I found that I could upload the photos in question to Facebook by the way of Facebook’s own photo uploader. It allowed me to dig into the Linux file structure under Chrome OS, locate the external storage drive media, and choose the photo I wanted. It was buggy, but it worked.Instead of using the photo upload button from the Status Update box on my Facebook profile page, I went into my Facebook photo albums. From a new album I created, I clicked the button to add photos.In the window that appears, click “Select Photos:” I picked the photo I wanted, then clicked OK.

It would be the 13th season.Check out our latest NFL predictions. 2Kansas CityKareem Hunt81110-29 Running backs perform poorly against the EaglesRushing yards gained against the Eagles vs. season average against other teams, among running backs with five or more carries in games against Philadelphia JAX66%JAX55%LAR+10.5– KC77KC73PIT+3.2– TEN59TEN63TEN+0.3– The domination of the Eagles’ front seven has meant that opposing teams have been forced to try their luck through the air. Philly ranks 29th in the league in total passing yards given up per game, but that’s largely because opposing teams have launched an onslaught on the Eagles’ secondary — Philly’s defense ranks No.1 in the league in pass attempts faced. Also, the Eagles have already faced Kirk Cousins, Alex Smith, Philip Rivers and Carson Palmer — four of the top six quarterbacks in passing yards per game through Week 6. When you strip the numbers back, the Eagles’ defense ranks 17th in the league in yards given up per passing attempt and 14th in opponents’ passer rating — still not great, but not terrible either.On the other side of the ball, the Eagles have gotten by with a balanced offense that ranks third in the league in total yards gained per game. Second-year quarterback Carson Wentz is off to a solid start to the year — Wentz has thrown 13 touchdowns and three interceptions and has a 99.6 passer rating through six games. And Eagles fans may be thinking this is the return of the Wentz they saw in the first three games of last season, when the team started 3-0 and before Wentz threw 14 interceptions in his final 13 games (when the team went 4-9). Thanks to the contributions of tight end Zach Ertz and running back LeGarrette Blount, Philadelphia is the only team in the league to have three players averaging more than 50 receiving yards per game2 and a running back averaging more than 60 rushing yards per game.3 With much of the hype surrounding the team’s defense, the offense has quietly emerged as one of the most dynamic in the game.So can the Eagles keep on winning? The answer might be “yes” — in the regular season at least. The Eagles’ opponents in their remaining 10 games have an average team Elo rating of 1484 (that’s a metric that estimates each team’s skill level using only the final scores and locations of each game — an Elo rating of roughly 1500 is considered average). Of those 10, just two — Washington and the Los Angeles Rams — have top-10 passing offenses (by passing yards per game). With Rodgers down for what could be the rest of the season, the Eagles could do some damage in the playoffs too. Now, obviously, a lot can change with 11 weeks remaining in the regular season, but of NFC teams currently in playoff positions, only the Saints’ Drew Brees ranks in the top 10 in passing yards per game.FiveThirtyEight vs. the crowdWeek 6 in our NFL prediction game — in which we invite you to pick football games and try to outsmart our Elo algorithm — was full of surprises. In fact, it was the fifth-most-upset-laden week in the NFL since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, according to the Brier Score of this week’s games (that’s a measure used to show how accurate each team’s pre-game win probabilities were).There were multiple games that both our Elo algorithm and you, the readers, got wrong. One of the biggies was the Green Bay-Minnesota game — but readers really took a bath on the Packers’ defeat, losing 14.2 points on average even compared with Elo. Readers also lost big when the Giants won (you read that right) on the road against the Broncos. It wasn’t all bad for readers, though — their best game of the week came when the Rams beat the Jaguars on the road (that’s what Elo gets for betting on the Jags).

ChargersMelvin Gordon2267-45 DEN77DEN84NYG-13.6– ARI58TB53ARI-12.4– In Week 6, the NFL’s best showed off their very worst. The Falcons blew a 17-0 lead to the Dolphins at home. The Patriots flirted with disaster against the Jets. The Chiefs were uncharacteristically lackluster in a loss at home. And the Packers suffered the worst loss of all when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. One contender that did take care of business: the Philadelphia Eagles. And it might be time to start taking them seriously.The Eagles beat the Panthers on the road on Thursday to improve to 5-1, and it appears that the NFC East could have its 13th consecutive season with a different champion (don’t even think about it, Giants fans). The Eagles now have a 76 percent chance of winning the division according to FiveThirtyEight’s NFL forecast; that’s the best chance of ending the season atop a division for any team other than the Chiefs. While it might be too early to bet the house that the Eagles will win the Super Bowl, there are plenty of reasons for optimism.Philadelphia’s defense is one major reason. Through Week 6, Doug Pederson’s rush defense is ranked No.1, surrendering just 66 yards per game. The Eagles have been so good that the 394 total yards that their defense has given up on the ground are the fewest they’ve conceded through six games in 63 years. Oh, and rookie sensation Kareem Hunt of the Chiefs is the only running back to rush for more than 35 yards1 against the Eagles this season, and even he ran for less than he has against other opponents this season, on average. read more

Former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel was not named the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, despite being interviewed for the position more than once. Colts owner Jim Irsay instead chose former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano to lead his franchise after Indianapolis finished with a league-worst 2-14 record in 2011. “I really believe Chuck is bringing a toughness, the leadership we need at this point for the franchise,” Irsay said when introducing the new coach Thursday. Tressel interviewed for the Colts’ coaching job twice according to multiple reports. On Monday, former Colts’ coach and current NFL analyst at NBC Tony Dungy said he thought Tressel might land the job. “I think Jim Irsay has his man in mind. It may be Jim Tressel, that’s what I’m hearing,” Dungy said on the Dan Patrick Show. Tressel served as a consultant for the Colts during the 2011 season and helped the team make in-game replay decisions. The Colts suspended Tressel until the seventh game of the season because of NCAA violations committed at OSU while Tressel was coach. As a result of the violations, the NCAA issued OSU a one-year bowl ban and a reduction of nine scholarships over three years. Tressel was served with a five-year show-cause penalty for his role in the violations. The penalty means that any NCAA institution that hires Tressel within the next five years could face sanctions. read more
