Dutch not favourites against struggling Germany – Van Dijk

Posted on

first_imgThe Netherlands will not be lulled into a false sense of security when they face a struggling, new-look Germany in their Euro 2020 qualifier in Amsterdam on Sunday, captain Virgil van Dijk has said.The Dutch beat the Germans 3-0 at home last October and came from behind with two late goals to force a 2-2 draw away in Gelsenkirchen one month later to win a place in the Nations League finals.The contrast in form continued this week when Van Dijk was among the scorers as the Netherlands beat Belarus 4-0 in Rotterdam on Thursday in their opening Group C qualifier, a day after Germany proved unconvincing in a 1-1 draw at home to Serbia in a warm-up international.“It does look like the Germans are still in a building phase but don’t forget that the Dutch side is also going through the same process,” Van Dijk said on the eve of the game at the Amsterdam Arena.“The Germans still have fantastic players even if they might be talking over there (in Germany) about a crisis. We also had a spell like that, where things did not go for us,” added Van Dijk, referring to his team’s failure to reach the 2016 European Championship in France and last year’s World Cup in Russia.“That was not a good phase. But we must worry about ourselves and not Germany. I don’t think we are favourites but that is up to you members of the media to decide.”The Dutch are, however, in confident mood after Thursday’s comfortable victory.“At times we played really good football but it can, and it must be, a lot better on Sunday,” said Van Dijk. “There were times where we did not put enough pressure on them and were sloppy and lost the ball.“Against Germany we can expect a completely different game and we all realise that. We know what we are capable of.”last_img read more

He is the first Chelsea player to hit double figures for goals in a single season of European football.Chelsea face Giroud’s former club Arsenal in an all-English final on May 29.last_img read more

Tint being stripped from Cops’ vehicles

Posted on

first_imgThe Guyana Police Force says it intends to make officers who are breaking the law an example, by removing the tint from their personal vehicles and those belonging to the Police Force.The traffic department has begun a drive, removing the tint from vehicles belonging to Police Officers and those used in patrol. Traffic Chief Dion Moore said the Police must set an example to the public.“If we are to address the issue of the general public, then we must first look at ourselves and that is exactly what we are doing. The public must not see us doing the same wrong things that we are punishing them for.”Moore said for this purpose, on the first occasion ranks are being warned, however, if they continue in the same practice, disciplinary actions will be taken.So far, the department was able to remove 62 tints from vehicles belonging to Police ranks, while 12 were removed from vehicles being used for traffic patrols, the Traffic Chief said.Just recently, Assistant Police Commissioner David Ramnarine had warned the Force’s officers that unless they were granted a special exemption for tint on their private vehicles, they would equally be subjected to what the law stipulates.“There is a law for tint. The law is not for some. The only law I know is when the chief licensing authority grants an exemption, and in a few other cases,” he said. “Some three weeks ago, a message was circulated for tint to be removed from Police patrol vehicles, but it was disregarded by some. And therefore, to (ensure) the compliance that we want, a combined course of action was taken,” Ramnarine had said.Last year, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan said Government would be moving to review the existing policy regarding tint on motor vehicles, as one of the components of the national crime fighting strategy. It was announced that tint meters would be used to determine the density of the tint on vehicle windows.As it currently stands, only certain vehicles are permitted to have tints without the expressed permission of the Public Security Minister. These include diplomatic vehicles and those belonging to senior Government and high-ranking military officials.Meanwhile, the Traffic Chief said 26 traffic ranks are currently undergoing two-week training, specifically for traffic purposes to improve their handling of traffic signals, their tolerance and their professionalism. He said many times the complaints senior officials receive are about ranks engaging in unprofessional behaviour.“The training is aimed at reducing the complaints from the public due to improper conduct of traffic ranks,” he said. Moore said the Police are also looking at Force drivers, particularly those who have been involved in accidents. He said officials have identified a total of 23 ranks who were involved in accidents. The department, he said, will carry out some remedial training in September.last_img read more

Liverpool’s best XI from the last 16 years? Gerrard thinks so…

Posted on

first_img1 Liverpool fans, who do you think should be in the best Reds’ line-up of the last 16 years? Comment below… Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard named his best XI 1 All talk earlier this week seemed to surround Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool future, after the Kop legend hinted that he could leave the club when his current deal expires at the end of the season.The comment brought a wave of backing for the captain, with team-mates saying he still has the capacity to be ‘massive for years to come’, while Anfield legends questioned the inner machinations of the club for even pondering letting him leave. Over the course of his 16 years as a professional player with the club, Gerrard has played with some of the finest players to grace the Premier League, and Djimi Traore, but just who in his opinion were the best?Fortunately, GQ asked Gerrard recently and the answer prompted great intrigue. Here is his best XI:last_img read more

Youth finds its voice

Picture this: not wanting to live like this. So you do something and that something turns big. I finally have a family that actually treats me like one of their kids. PALMDALE – Seventeen-year-old Gabriel Chacon writes poetry and raps. Picture this: 11 years old going on your own, No place to live. No shower. No food. No friends. All you can think about is the end: the end of life. Why is the question that we ask. His words: Chacon left home at 15 after his parents divorced, dropped out of school and went to work in construction. After deciding he wanted more in life, he’s back in school, living in a Palmdale group home, and plans to join the Marines. “If you want big things, a big house, you have to go to school. I want big things, and working as a Marine is a big start, a big lift off for me,” Chacon explained. Chacon was among the teens who rapped about their lives last week for dozens of other young people at an event called The Literacy Cafe, put on by the Los Angeles County Office of Education at Murrell’s Community Service Agency. Sitting around tables decorated with white tablecloths in Murrell’s youth center, eating cakes and drinking coffee provided by Starbucks, about 30 young people ages 15 to 25 listened to other young people and guest speakers reciting African folk stories, poems, rap songs and personal stories. The cafe was part of the county education office’s Workforce Investment Act program that encourages young people to stay in school and plan their futures: officials help youths manage jobs, understand work ethics and basically train them for careers, underscoring the importance of education and the written and spoken word. “The Workforce Investment Act is a program that basically helps prepare young people for the world of work. We not only focus on the job but we focus on your career – thus the Literacy Cafe was born,” said Tammy Calderon, an education office supervisor. Storyteller Michael McCartney regaled the youth with folk tales of slavery and even personal stories about himself. At the end of the talk, he questioned the audience about his story, and those who answered were rewarded with books. Ted Burns, youth pastor at Living Stone Cathedral of Worship in Littlerock, rapped inspirational songs about God and about society. One rap took on African-American oppression. We don’t vote no more. We don’t hope no more. This is how you train us, To put the books down and pursue entertainment. See we are our own worst enemies. Slavery still exists. They just raised the wages. Chacon came away the winner of a $25 prize for the best poetry or rap, voted on by applause from the audience. The others who rapped or recited poetry about their lives were Wayneshia Bailey, 18; Shay Williams, 18, and Lajoi Davis, 17.

Senator Young Visits Noblesville Following School Shooting

Posted on

first_imgU.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) traveled to Noblesville today after a shooting this morning at Noblesville West Middle School. Senator Young met with law enforcement, state and local officials, and first responders to receive an update on the situation, and offer his gratitude to all of those involved in the response. Senator Young issued the following statement: “As someone who grew up in this county, who attended public schools here in Indiana, and who still has young students in my own family attending schools here — I’m saddened and deeply troubled by this tragedy. My prayers of course are with the victims and their families, and with all of the students and teachers who witnessed this horrific attack and had their lives turned upside down. My gratitude goes out to the heroic teacher, our community leaders, and our brave first responders for all they have done — and all that they will continue to do in the days and weeks to come. It is unclear what motivates a young person to engage in such senseless violence, but we owe it to our children to find out. We must resolve to work together on this, to better understand this tragedy so that we can take lawful and effective measures to prevent this from happening again. Our children deserve no less.”last_img read more

More Music for Spotify, Free Music for Virgin UK

Posted on

first_imgIn addition to allowing users to listen to music and share files and playlists, Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek continues to forge partnerships in his “commitment to developing the world’s biggest music catalogue.” Given that Lala claims that it also offers “over 6 million songs for free”, this is no easy feat. Launched in 2006 the service is available in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Spain, France and Finland. The service is already so popular that crafty audiophiles outside of the service areas have been accessing it via proxy server. Spotify is invite-only and currently offers streaming music via Mac, Windows and Linux, and device integration on the Android, iPhone and Nokia S60 series is well on its way. The service also allows users to scrobble to Last.fm and keep track of their listening through the popular music recommendation site. On-demand streaming music service Spotify just announced the addition of more than 90,000 releases to its catalogue. The announcement came on the heels of their recent deal with CD baby, and users will be pleased. The company published two lists sorted by artists and labels early this morning. While Spotify is not yet available to North American audiences, legal streaming music services have certainly proved their demand with competitors like Grooveshark, Lala and Tunerec seeing steady growth.

Virgin media broadband customers will listen to streaming music and pay for tracks from Universal’s catalogue. Virgin is looking to form new partnerships with UK-based labels and create a comprehensive catalogue upon launch. This play by a major media company may have dire effects on Spotify and its competitors. At this time, Spotify also offers links to downloadable tracks and a huge selection of tracks, but it will be interesting to see who consumers choose to deliver their tunes.
