Mourinho stance strengthens squad

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s unequivocal public support of his players in the face of criticism can only galvanise the squad for the challenges ahead, according to former Blues defender Frank Sinclair. Sinclair, an ambassador for the Prostate Cancer UK Men United Campaign, believes Mourinho’s stance will only serve to make the Chelsea dressing room stronger. “Jose is a master of mind games, and the one thing he likes to have within his group is a siege mentality. He has always been like that and gets his group of players behind him, and makes sure they are all pushing in the right direction,” Sinclair told Press Association Sport. “When he has a press conference, he protects his players and that shows he is 100 per cent behind them and wants the players to be the same with him. When you speak to the players, that is the spirit they have got.” Chelsea host Manchester City on Saturday evening, looking to extend their five-point lead at the top of the table. While Sinclair, 43, believes the Blues have what it takes to see off a City side beaten at home by Arsenal in their last league match, he warned against any complacency over what the run-in could yet bring. “It will be a tough game, but on the back of a great win in midweek, I would fancy Chelsea to get the result against Manchester City,” said Sinclair, who played more than 160 games for Chelsea between 1990 and 1998. “As for the title, Manchester City have already pegged back a nine-point lead earlier in the season, so all it takes is for Chelsea to have another blip and all of a sudden City are back in the ball game. “However, if Chelsea do win on Saturday, then you would not bet against them going on to win the championship with that advantage.” Chelsea will face Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on March 1. Sinclair feels while the west London club have more pressing targets, to get a trophy back in the Stamford Bridge cabinet would only serve to inspire the players for the bigger challenges which await. “It can breed confidence and be a spring board to what the main aims are for the season,” said Sinclair, who was part of Ruud Gullit’s Chelsea side which won the FA Cup in 1997 and then also the League Cup the following season under new Blues manager Gianluca Vialli before joining Leicester. “The priority will, of course, be to win the Premier League and go as far as possible in the Champions League, but for the likes of people like Diego Costa, who have come to the Premier League for the first time to play in such a big game at Wembley will stay with him for the rest of his life.” One of the latest initiatives from Prostate Cancer UK will see The Anchor Bankside pub, on London’s South Bank, be temporarily known as ‘The Men United Arms’ from where activities will be run to help celebrate and inspire male friendships. Sinclair lost his uncle to prostate cancer seven years ago, and is determined to help beat the disease. He said: “When you are in the sports industry, you almost feel you are invincible. You live the life of keeping fit naturally, training and playing, you kind of take it for granted, but at the same time you can’t be aware of something that is not visible, so it is important to get the check-ups, especially if there is a history in the family.” :: Visit to sign up for Prostate Cancer UK’s movement for men. Mourinho has been fined £25,000 and warned over his future conduct by the Football Association for claiming there was a “clear campaign” against Chelsea earlier in the season. Following the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg win over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, the Portuguese manager vehemently defended striker Diego Costa, who could face an immediate three-match suspension after subsequently being charged for an apparent stamp on Reds defender Emre Can.

Red Bank Says ‘Cheers!’ to Another Beer Hall. That’s 5 So…

first_imgWith the green light,some believe this couldopen the door for Red Bankto become known as anepicenter of microbreweryactivity in the state – a newidentity that appeals to RedBank RiverCenter executivedirector James Scavone. There are 105 fully operational breweries in New Jersey, 13 of which are in Monmouth County, including five in the greater Two River area: Belford Brewing, Carton Brewing, Jughandle Brewing, Raritan Bay Brewing and Red Tank. Instead, Lupu said he would chop the third story from the proposal, eliminating two apartments and the need to lease additional parking spaces from nearby Amboy Bank. A six-minute walk from Triumph to Riverside Avenue will bring craft beer fans to another brewery of sorts in Birravino, which offers house-brewed beer selections and an Italian-themed menu. “It’s something we’d like to embrace,” Scavone said. “We want to look at the arrival of all of these breweries as an opportunity. People are definitely into the culture and I think having several breweries open in a short period of time of each other shows that Red Bank has a very active economic structure in place.” Lupu also owns Maloney’s Pub on Main Street in Matawan, a beer-lover’s destination known for its rotating list of more than 100 draft beers, including seasonal specialties, high-end imports, the latest and greatest selections from local brewing operations and other craft options from around the nation. Part of Lupu’s proposal for the former art and memorabilia store, which he purchased in 2017 for $1.2 million, called for the placement of a separate eatery alongside a microbrewery on the first floor. Though Phoenix of Matawan attorney Rick Brodsky said the food vendor initially aligned with the proposal has walked away, the 3,000-square-foot microbrewery concept is still green-lighted, and one Lupu should be able to deliver. “The craft brewing culture is about freedom and experimentation, and people enjoy tasting as many different brands as they can. Having so many breweries in one area that people can hop to plays into that.” “I never like to take the easy way out when it comes to my work. But if removing the top level is what it takes to get this done then that’s what it takes,” Lupu said. “I can’t wait to show people a finished product. This city is such a wonderful location with an exciting atmosphere and we can’t wait to be part of it.” Founded by two prominent local photographers, John and Lovina Arcara, Red Tank opened its doors in October, pairing its brewing operation with weekly trivia nights, birthday bashes and live music events. There are three brewpubsin Monmouth County. Two,Birravino and Triumph, arelocated in Red Bank. During the hearing for the new brewery proposed for 42 Monmouth St., building owner Florin Lupu, on behalf of his company and applicant Phoenix of Matawan, agreed to scale back the scope of work for the mixed-use building with a microbrewery and store on the ground floor and four large apartments on the second and third stories. By Chris Rotolo RED BANK – Another borough brewery is on tap after a long-proposed site plan for the former Fameabilia building was approved by the zoning board following a major alteration. Less than half-mile stroll down Monmouth Street toward Bridge Avenue patrons can find Triumph Brewing, a regional brewpub just steps away from Red Bank’s historic train station and the Two River Theater. Triumph offers in-house dining options and additional has additional locations in Princeton, Philadelphia and New Hope, Pennsylvania. Three other Monmouth County breweries, including Ross Brewing Company and Source Brewing of Colts Neck, are in the licensing stage and preparing to launch. Located just a short walk through the White Street parking lot, inside the old Liberty Hose Company firehouse, will be a third microbrewery, when the long-awaited Ross Brewing Company presents its bold flavors to the public. Though Scavone said the possibility for a craft beer-themed event is a possibility, Mayor Pasquale Menna isn’t sure another festival is necessary. With so much Two River community brewing taking place in and around Red Bank, it certainly presents the borough as a centralized location for a larger event that could capture the attention of a statewide audience, much like Red Bank’s International Beer & Wine Festival and the Guinness Oyster Festival. If Lupu’s brewery concept comes to fruition, it would be located just across Monmouth Street from another new Red Bank tasting room, Red Tank Brewing at 77 Monmouth St. “We may not need a festival, because we already have activity and creative energy coming together. Long before craft breweries were big, Red Bank had the creative juices flowing. They were alive and well in coffee houses, galleries and art spaces. We have plenty of activity and entertainment already happening here,” Menna said. This article was first published in the May 23 – 29, 2019 printed edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Saints on the road for Alberta triple-header weekend

first_img“We’re going up against three teams that made their league playoffs last season, and we’re playing three games in three days off of a long bus trip. But those are the types of challenges that you want to face and overcome early in the season. We should head back with a very good idea of how we’re going to stack up against the top college hockey teams in Western Canada.” The trip will see Selkirk’s returning players face off against a pair of ex-teammates, as 2012/13 captain Jordan Wood and two-year blueliner Justin Sotkowy now play for NAIT and McEwan respectively. The Saints will then return home for their final preseason games against Trinity Western University on Friday, September 27th (7:30 p.m. in Nelson) and Saturday, September 28th (7:30 p.m in Castlegar).General admission tickets for both games will be available at the door for $5. The Selkirk College Men’s Hockey program will continue the march towards the beginning of the 2013/14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League regular season this weekend when they make the trip to Edmonton for a trio of match-ups against Alberta Colleges Athletics Conference opponents. The Saints will face off against Concordia University on Friday, the defending league champion Northern Alberta Institute of Technology on Saturday and Grant McEwan University on Sunday.Last weekend they were victorious in a pair of home contests against Keyano College, who also compete in the ACAC. “Last weekend we got our first taste of the calibre of play in Alberta against Keyano and I was very impressed with what I saw,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Overall, the ACAC is a bigger and more physical than what we usually see in B.C., but our skill level and work ethic held up very well. We’re looking to carry forward on the momentum from those two wins into the weekend and continue to improve in a number of areas with the regular season just two weeks away.” The Saints’ first opponent – Concordia University – finished fourth in the 9-team league with a 12-12-4 record last season, while NAIT led the way at 23-2-3 and McEwan grabbed the sixth and final playoff spot with a 9-19-0 regular season. “Each of these games should be demanding, both physically and mentally,” says Dubois.last_img read more

“Primitive” Humans Were Sailors

first_imgGreek archaeologists have found stone tools on Crete thought to be between 130,000 and 700,000 years old, reported PhysOrg.  If so, the makers had to sail to get there.  “Crete has been separated from the mainland for about five million years, so whoever made the tools must have traveled there by sea (a distance of at least 40 miles).”  Before this announcement, the earliest date claimed for ancestors of humans was about 60,000 years, the article said, “although considerably earlier dates have been proposed”.  Back in February, claims of the younger date (130,000 years) “flabbergasted” the discoverers (see 02/18/2010).  Even then, an archaeologist compared it to finding an iPod in King Tut’s tomb.Tut, tut.  Observers of the collapse of human paleoanthropology are not surprised by more and more anomalies.  The surprises are the new norm.  This indicates that the non-surprising interpretation is outside the evolutionary box.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Progress in Pakistan with Nigeria on the Horizon

He will be blogging about his experience every month, and you can learn more about him, the other Young Champions, and the program here.My 4th month in the Young Champions Program was very busy. The New Year celebration, my birthday, and the visa process for Nigeria made it a little hectic for me but I enjoyed it. I am planning to finally physically join my work office in Nigeria on the 1st of March and have started my visa process. I have completed the 7th chapter of safe motherhood guidelines for training traditional birth attendants and health workers. I tried to gather material for safe childcare guidelines and for that propose I met the maternal and child health coordinator of my town. This meeting was very helpful. The 7th chapter is on the first stage of labour: the condition of fetus. Description of the chapter is as follows.ObjectivesWhen you have completed this unit you should be able to:Monitor the condition of the fetus during labourRecord the findings on the partogramUnderstand the significance of the findingsUnderstand the causes and signs of fetal distressInterpret the significance of different fetal heart rate patterns and meconium stained liquorManage any abnormalities which are detectedThe next chapter, which I am currently working on, is the overall management of the first stage of labour and will be completed soon.Following is the progress of the activities planned in the first quarter of the project.Activities Planned for 1st QuarterAdvocacy meetings with stake holders – Lagos State Agency for the Control of AIDS (LSACA), Association of traditional births attendant (TBA) Primary Health Centers and community leadersTraining of volunteers (maternal health activist)Training of traditional birth attendantsActivities ImplementedAdvocacy VisitsAdvocacy meetings: this activity is implemented with the objective to increase public commitment to maternal health and awareness for HIV and TB prevention, prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, family planning and prevention of other infections.Training of Volunteers (Maternal Health Activists)Date: November 25-26, 2010Venue: WCH Conference HallTraining Goal: To provide the volunteers with reproductive health updates and enable them provide quality maternal health information, non-prescriptive contraceptives and referrals to create a synergy between primary health centers and other agencies implementing programs on maternal health.Facilitators: Eunan Enyia, Emeka Nwankwo, Lucy Attah, Dr. FaisalTopics Discussed: Introduction to maternal health; Safe motherhood; Causes of maternal mortality; Cultural causes of maternal mortality; The impact of maternal mortality in our societyTarget Location: The facilitators and participants identified and discussed about the location for the project activities which include the primary health centers, traditional birth attendants and private hospitals. There was an argument to include churches as part of project sites since it is discovered that some churches claim to have healed their HIV clients and they will restrict their clients to their own clinics without referring them to where they can obtain ARV drug or adequate information that will help them make informed decisions concerning their health, especially maternal health complications and sexually transmitted infections.Counselling and Referral Activities: In this reporting period, young women living with HIV and AIDS came to WCH to seek out information concerning their health. Some were seeking information for family planning, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and adherence information on TB/HIV drugs. They were engaged in counseling. Forty eight clients (38 women, 10 men) were counseled and appropriate referrals made to PMTCT clinics.Challenges: The major challenge was that the training of the traditional birth attendants was rescheduled to take place in January. This is to allow time for people to go on holidays during Christmas period in December.Second Quarter Activities: The following list of activities would be scheduled to take place in the next quarter (2nd quarter):Counseling and ReferralsTraining of traditional birth attendantsAwareness / sensitization in communitiesTraining of health workers (Community Health Extension Workers-CHEWS)Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more
