LONDON (AP): As English football’s most successful teams, Manchester United and Liverpool are the mainstays around the summit of the league. Rivals come and go but United and Liverpool are always to be found among the chasing pack – at least, for the top prize. No longer. When the northwest rivals play on Sunday at Anfield it will be a meeting of mediocrity – by their standards. For the first time in 35 years, the league could finish without either United or Liverpool – who have 38 titles between them – in the top four. And it’s about cash, not just symbolism. Finishing outside the top four would mean missing out on the Champions League next season. With only one win in eight league matches, record 20-time champions United have dropped to sixth place, two points behind Tottenham in fourth. Liverpool are three points behind United in ninth after failing to achieve the uplift anticipated in the three months since hiring Jürgen Klopp as manager. There’s halfway to go in the January transfer window. Having not signed an outfield player in the summer window, Arsenal recruited midfielder Mohamed Elneny from Basel. Arsenal expect the Egyptian to be registered in time for Sunday’s game against Stoke. “Arsenal are one of those teams that everyone enjoys watching, and, of course, I would love to play for such a great team,” he said. Elneny arrives after winning three consecutive Swiss league titles at Basel, which he joined from El Mokawloon in Egypt. Arsenal are seeking their first league title since 2004, but are only ahead of surprise contenders Leicester at the summit on goal difference. Tomorrow, Arsenal’s north London neighbours, Tottenham face Sunderland, which has signed striker Dame N’Doye on loan from Trabzonspor for the rest of the season. The 30-year-old Senegal international was previously at Hull, scoring five times in 15 appearances before moving to Turkey. “Having already played in the Premier League, he should have no problems in hitting the ground running, too, which is very important at this stage of the season,” Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce said. VARDY GOAL DROUGHT SQUAD ADDITIONS While United’s draws have added to the pressure on Louis van Gaal, Liverpool’s scrambled comebacks to rescue points have been celebrated by Klopp and his squad almost like wins – including Wednesday’s 3-3 comeback at home to Arsenal. “There has been a big improvement recently (in our mental strength) and that’s very important when you’re at a big club,” Liverpool defender Kolo Toure said. “You can’t ever give up. When you refuse to lose games, you often find yourself winning them. “It’s always important that if you don’t win, you don’t lose. We showed character and resilience and we didn’t give up until the end of the game. It’s very important that we keep things going at home.” After setting a Premier League record for scoring in 11 consecutive games, injury-hit Jamie Vardy has failed to score for a fifth consecutive match. The 1-0 victory at Tottenham on Wednesday was secured by a rare goal from Robert Huth, on Vardy’s first game back from groin surgery.
Wipster’s new integration seamlessly creates Premiere Pro markers from online client feedback.As a video professional, one of the biggest pain points that comes up during the editing process is getting feedback from clients. In the past, the best option was to upload a private video to Vimeo or YouTube and send your client a link. The client would then send their feedback and you’d have to repeat the process over and over.However, Wipster changed the game in 2014 by introducing editors to a new kind of review process. No longer would editors have to upload video versions to YouTube or Vimeo. Instead, users could use the Wipster interface to upload their videos and get client feedback with detailed instructions at certain points in the timeline. In a way, this was similar to adding markers in Premiere, except it took place entirely online.Outside of a few new players in the game and added workflow improvements, this review process has remained relatively similar over the last two years. However, Wipster just changed the game with a new feature that will certainly get Premiere Pro users excited: the Wipster Review PanelUsing this new Premiere Pro Add-On, you can now send videos directly from Premiere Pro to your clients for feedback. Once your clients review the video and add critiques online, their notes will automatically be placed into your Premiere Pro timeline as markers. This new feature will make it incredibly easy for you to get feedback without disrupting your workflow. In the words of Wipster CEO Rollo Wenlock:What used to be ten disconnected steps became just three with the arrival of Wipster, and is now down to one – the increased efficiencies will seriously help the bottom line of any company producing video.The Wipster Review Panel is available through the Add-On download page. Just navigate to Window>Browse Add-Ons to find it. Once installed, you will be prompted to input your Wipster account information. This helpful video explains how to use the new add-on. It’s a surprisingly simple process.This new service is currently only available to Wipster Video Pro users. You can create your own Wipster account for $15 a month, which is a great deal if you work a lot with video clients.What do you think of this new feature? How will it effect your workflow?

It’s just my personal goal to keep me motivated,” James said.“The conversations about who’s the greatest of all time, things of that nature — it doesn’t matter to me.”More than scoringWhat does matter is the chance to cement his own legacy, one that inspires young players to look beyond scoring as they develop their games.Bill Laimbeer, stalwart of the Detroit Pistons’ “Bad Boys” teams that were once the bane of Jordan’s Bulls, says that attention to every aspect of the game makes James, for him, the best ever.“I’ll take LeBron James, absolutely,” Laimbeer said this month on “The Rematch” podcast. “LeBron can do anything. Michael couldn’t get all the rebounds. He couldn’t be the assist man like LeBron James can.”James says he wants to be known — and remembered — as more than a scorer.“Scoring the ball is so heralded in our sport,” James said. “I want the fundamentals of the game to be as great as they can be.“If some kid or a group of kids from the West Coast or the East Coast or the Midwest or the South and everything in between, all around the world can look at me and say, ‘Well, I made the extra pass because LeBron made the extra pass,’ or, ‘I got a chase-down block and I didn’t give up on the play because LeBron didn’t give up,’ that would mean the world to me.” As pundits parsed the stats showing Jordan achieved his 5,987 playoff points in 179 post-season games while James reached 5,995 in his 212th post-season contest, James dismissed such conversations as “barbershop” debates.When pressed, however, he acknowledged Jordan’s massive influence and the significance of the milestone.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hosting“I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, just seeing what he was able to accomplish,” James said after scoring 35 points in the Cavaliers’ 135-102 victory over the Boston Celtics that clinched the Eastern Conference title.“When you’re growing up and you’re seeing Michael Jordan, it’s almost like a god.
