first_imgTwo Southampton supporters could be banned from the club after taunting Cardiff City fans about the death of striker Emiliano Sala, Southampton said on Saturday.Argentine Sala died in a plane crash last month days after joining Cardiff and his body was found on Thursday.Two Southampton fans were photographed making aeroplane gestures during their side’s 2-1 home Premier League defeat by Cardiff on Saturday.”Southampton Football Club can confirm that two fans were detained and had their details taken by police during our match against Cardiff City,” the club said in a statement.”Such behaviour has no place in our game and will not be tolerated at St Mary’s.”Southampton said they would work with Hampshire Police to identify individuals who made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters.”The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified,” they added.Players from both teams observed a minute’s silence in tribute to Sala before the game.”We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I’m really proud the lads have done him justice,” Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said.Also Watch:last_img read more

Nico de Boinville then drew nine lengths clear of Springtown Lake in the final quarter-mile, and by the time On The Blind Side was on the walkway back to the winner’s enclosure, he had been cut to 10-1 second-favourite for the Ballymore Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham in March. Henderson’s gelding would be shorter still to win at the Festival if the same race was not the logical target for Gordon Elliott’s hugely promising Samcro. “He will be a lovely chaser in a year’s time,” Henderson said. “I don’t think you will be tempted into staying over hurdles with him next year.“I think a lot of people thought they had got him off the bridle coming down the hill at Cheltenham [last month] and he looked as if we nearly ought to be going up in trip [from two miles and five furlongs] but in fact, we have come down [to two-and-a-half miles].“He has got a great temperament for it and a lovely attitude. I would say the Ballymore [will be his race at the Festival] at the moment and it would be nice to go to the [Grade One] Challow [Hurdle at Newbury on 30 December] and then leave him off. You know me, I could then go to bed until March.”Colin Tizzard, who will saddle Fox Norton, the odds-on favourite, in Saturday’s Tingle Creek, sent White Moon, the winner of his last two starts, up against On The Blind Side but the grey was beaten turning out of the back straight and finished last of the seven runners, 50 lengths behind the winner.Tizzard was at a loss to explain White Moon’s poor performance afterwards, but remains confident that Fox Norton is in the right condition to justify his short price on Saturday.

The shoes they put on him at the racecourse were too tight, and you try running in shoes that are too tight.”Cold weather is forecast throughout the country over the weekend and Andrew Cooper, Sandown’s clerk of the course, will hold a precautionary inspection at 8am on Saturday to ensure that frost covers which were relaid after Friday’s card have done their job. “Minus three is the worst forecast I’ve seen,” Cooper said, “but I’m pretty optimistic we should be fine.”There will also be inspections ahead of the cards at Aintree, where there is a chance of snow overnight, and at Chepstow, which could be susceptible to frost. Inspections have also been called at Huntingdon and Kelso ahead of their scheduled meetings on Sunday.

Ontario NDP leader pledges end to longweekend gas pump gouging details vague

On

first_imgOTTAWA – The leader of Ontario’s New Democrats pledged in vague terms on Sunday to tackle long-weekend spikes in gasoline prices, alleging that opportunistic gas companies are gouging hard-pressed motorists at the pumps.Campaigning in Ottawa ahead of the June 7 provincial election, Andrea Horwath took aim at a trend she said was the result of corporate greed.“We think that it is an abuse to simply gouge people at the pumps because there’s a long weekend coming,” Horwath said. “We’re going to prevent that spike from happening.”Gas prices routinely jump ahead of long weekends, which the industry attributes to market dynamics — increased demand and distance to distributors.While Horwath said she wasn’t looking to repeal the laws of supply and demand, she said people who have no choice but to drive shouldn’t be penalized. The idea, she said, would be to fix prices a week ahead of long weekends.“We won’t allow the industry — on a whim and for the purposes of sucking more profits at an opportune time — to do so at the expense of everyday people who have no other choice but to get into a car and fill up the tank,” Horwath said.Gas prices have also been on the minds of the other two party leaders. Last Wednesday, the Progressive Conservatives’ Doug Ford stood outside a gas station in Oakville, Ont., to promise a reduction in gas prices by 10 cents per litre if he becomes premier.Ontario drivers now pay 14.7 cents per litre in provincial tax and 14.3 cents on diesel. Ford said the Tories would reduce both to nine cents. He also promised to scrap the province’s cap-and-trade system, which has added 4.3 cents a litre to gasoline.Drivers “are frustrated at being gouged at the gas pumps,” Ford said. “This will stimulate the economy when we put money back into their pocket.”Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne, meantime, said it’s normal for prices to move up and down, and said Ford’s promise to bring prices down was dubious. Global forces, Wynne said, tend to be the largest factor in gas prices.“I know he’s saying that he’ll take 10 cents out — we know that most people won’t feel that,” Wynne said. “The reality is that the prices fluctuate — vastly, wildly.”Horwath was vague on the details of her scheme, but said she would not look to cap gas prices. She said she recognized that gas prices are set in New York, but other jurisdictions have systems for stabilizing the cost of filling up and an NDP government would look at best practices before moving on the pledge.The party said the Ontario Energy Board, which currently regulates the price of natural gas and electricity to homes, could take on the task of regulating pump prices.In a statement responding to the NDP pledge, the Liberals cited results of a study commissioned by the Ontario Energy Board suggesting regulation in places such as Newfoundland had in fact led to higher gas prices.“Regulation can affect fuel prices by altering the competitive dynamics of a market and its prices in ways that may not necessarily benefit consumers,” the report said.“In some provinces, regulations have resulted in prices that were higher — though less volatile — than would likely be experienced in an unregulated setting.”In response, Horwath said transparency and predictability would result from her proposals — both important to consumers.Horwath also said people in a given region should pay similar prices. The idea of going on a drive and running into different prices is frustrating and unnecessary, she said.“You get to the next destination and, all of a sudden, the gas is say five cents cheaper and you feel like you’ve been ripped off because you’ve just paid five cents more 40 kilometres down the highway,” Horwath said.“That’s got to stop.”last_img read more

TN concerned over attacks by Lankan Navy on fishermen

On

The Tamil Nadu Government today expressed concern over the “alarming increase” in number of “attacks” on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy and sought the Centre’s intervention for release of 42 of them, the Press Trust of India reported.Referring to a spate of “distressing” arrests of Indian fishermen from his state in the last few days, Chief Minister K Palaniswami said such apprehensions have a “demoralising impact” on fishermen as well as the people of the state. The Tamil Nadu Government was taking “multifarious” steps to convert trawling boats to long liners and gill netters in the shortest possible period, Palaniswami said, adding all transitions take time.“The Sri Lankan policy of abduction of boats in this transition period without respite only indicates its increasing intolerant attitude and the scant respect for the Indian diplomatic efforts,” he said.The Chief Minister urged Modi to take the matter up with the highest authorities in the Sri Lankan Government and ensure the immediate release of a total of 42 fishermen and 141 boats. The people of the state “strongly believe” that the fishermen have a genuine claim to the Palk Bay fishing grounds from where they “are being apprehended,” he added.the chief minister also pointed out that Sri Lanka has not released any of the fishing boats apprehended since January 2015, adding, that this “inhumane strategy” was causing great loss of livelihood to the fishermen.“There was wide expectation among the people of Tamil Nadu that the boats apprehended since 2015 would be released as an outcome of your meeting with the Sri Lankan prime minister in April,” Palaniswami said, referring to Modi’s meeting with Ranil Wickremesinghe in Delhi. He recalled the state urging the Centre to use diplomatic measures to “prevail” upon Colombo “and reverse this trend”.“These instances, occurring on an everyday basis, in which our boats with innocent fishermen are being apprehended with impunity by the Sri Lankan Navy has a demoralising impact not just on the fishermen, but also on people of Tamil Nadu,” he said in the letter. In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he raised the issue of arrest of 14 fishermen in two separate instances by the Lankan navy on Saturday. “The alarming increase in the frequency of abductions by the Sri Lankan Navy is a matter of utmost concern for the (state) Government and the people of Tamil Nadu. An immediate intervention at the highest level is sought to resolve this long standing livelihood issue of our fishermen,” he said. In spite of the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) between India and Sri Lanka being sub-judice due to the ceding of Katchatheevu islet, the Sri Lankan Navy is continuing its marauding attacks on and abductions of our fishermen,” he said. read more

Happy Birthday Margaret Peggy Carter

On

first_img James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News Stay on target No woman in Marvel compares to the one, the only Margaret “Peggy” Carter. Forever the force to be recognized with, we know so little about this Virginian bombshell, but we also know so much about her. As confusing as that is to say, think about it for a second and compare her to other SHIELD against Today, we’re celebrating the birthday of one of our first American heroes, Peggy Carter.Born Margaret “Peggy” Carter, she was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and has seen and lived so many lives on and off the field. Peggy’s first appearance was in Tales of Suspense #75, but then later had a more prominent part next to Captain America as his love interest in a flashback. However, it wasn’t until Captain America #162, where we got our first full view, and Peggy was her own person. The issue also featured Sharon Carter, who was Peggy’s sister in this issue, but later retconned from sister to aunt. Strange, I know. There’s little known about Peggy before she joined the French Resistance. Our girl was born in Richmond, Virginia and joined the Resistance as a teenager. She rose to the ranks as a skilled fighter and then became an agent because of her detail-oriented mind, honed fighting skills, absolute wit and fierce loyalty.Peggy is someone who should be greatly admired. She’s gone into the battlefield with bravery and courage. Never backing down even when the odds were against her, and coming through the other side with missions and stories that are astounding. She’s had amnesia and watched her loved ones, including Captain America, die but she’s always soldered on. Peggy’s stories inspired her niece to follow in her footsteps and join SHIELD. Peggy is not only a champion of the battlefield but also a stealer of hearts. (I’m cheesy, let me live.). She’s had a lifelong love with Captain America. It’s a fantastic and charming love story between them fueled by mutual respect, admiration, and honor.Throughout Peggy’s run in comics, she’s been known as Agent 13 and Mademoiselle. She’s also associated with SHIELD, Avengers Support Crew, OSS, Secret Empire and, of course, the French Resistance. Peggy’s an expert markswoman with proficiency in high powered weapons and has highly advanced combat training.If you’re thinking of reading anything about Peggy Carter, please read it all. However, if you need some help, let me get you started! To start from the beginning, you’ll want to start with Tales of Suspense #75, Captain America #162, Captain America #175, Captain America #184, Captain America #351, Captain America and The First Thirteen (2011), Original S.I.N (2015) and if you’re into Peggy Carter actually being Captain America (if you’re not, we can’t be friends), then may I introduce you to the best comic you’ll read Exiles!Peggy’s always been a force to be reckoned with. She’s also been a force in both television and film. The stunningly brilliant Hayley Atwell shook the world with her portrayal as the war hero in Captain America: The First Avenger. She can also be seen in The Winter Soldier, Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Civil War and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hayley Atwell has also portrayed the character in the gone too soon series Agent Carter, where she plays the title character on some badass adventures during the post-war. Hayley has brought a light and brightness to the role that made Peggy Carter her. You can’t think of Hayley Atwell without thinking of Peggy Carter.Sadly, Peggy’s tragic death onscreen may not allow us to see her anymore. If she is, it may only be in flashbacks and specific scenes. Even though she has passed in the comics, Exiles has brought her back in a suit we all know and love. Peggy Carter has lived a life above and beyond what the call of duty stands for. She’s been a loyal soldier, fierce friend, and overall badass. Happy Birthday Peggy Carter and R.I.P.

How This CEO Slashed His Staffs Email Inboxes

On

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Craig Bryant started Kin HR because he needed onboarding services for his rapidly growing company, We Are Mammoth. Unable to find a vendor offering what he needed, he decided to build it himself, drawing from his own background managing employees. After experiencing rapid growth, Bryant realized the need for flexible and affordable HR software and launched Kin HR last year, a human resource software solution specifically designed for companies with fewer than 100 employees. Three of the six employees that work for Kin HR work out of the Chicago headquarters, with the other half sprinkled across the country. While he didn’t plan on running two companies simultaneously, he’s at the helm of both and relying on technology like never before. Craig Bryant of Kin HR and We Are MammothImage credit: Kin HR, We Are MammothHere are three digital tools he can’t live without:Intercom. Kin HR employees used to manually email every customer who signed up for a free trial. This process was extremely time consuming as well as prone to errors, such as typos and incorrect names. But since the company began using Intercom, a user intelligence and customer communication app, new customers receive an automated personalized message throughout their free trial and existing users get targeted information on updates and feedback. Intercom also allows the customers to communicate in real time with a Kin representative at any time. Bryant says that the because the app eliminates the need to manually write, format and send several hundred emails each month to sales prospects, the technology allows employees to save around 100 hours in total each month and focus their efforts on customer service once prospects respond. “The app has also significantly increased the engagement and conversation rate for the free trial with our prospective customers,” Bryant says.Related: What’s Wrong With the Modern Conference Call (and the Man Who’s Trying to Fix It)HipChat. As more of the Kin team works remotely, Bryant has struggled to maintain office culture and help employees express their “presence.” With his employees in different locations, they missed the personal chit-chat around the water cooler as well as knowing what each other was working on throughout the day. Three years ago, Bryant set up employees at We Are Mammoth with HipChat, a web chat software, to stay in touch and Bryant started Kin employees on it last year. When employees return from vacation they can quickly scan through HipChat and get up to speed on the latest office chatter, like who had a birthday and who will be out of the office in the morning for a dentist appointment. “One of our employees just moved to Seattle and has been sharing his frustrations over buying new furniture just like he would if we were hanging out together in the break room over coffee,” Bryant says. He selected HipChat because it was the most advanced tool at the time and while today there are other tools with more features such as Hall and Unison today, he says that his employees like HipChat’s simplicity.Related: How This CEO Went From 400 Different Passwords to Just OneBasecamp. Working collaboratively across the country presents many challenges and wading through tons of project-related emails takes valuable time. Bryant began using Basecamp at We are Mammoth 7 years ago after hearing about it from other small companies and began using it for Kin marketing projects as soon as the company started. “When we are launching a product, creating a client newsletter or designing a new landing page, we use Basecamp for all project communications and files. It allows people in different locations to easily review content, share feedback and make edits,” says Bryant. He says that it also allows anyone in the company to see all marketing activities and chime in with thoughts and ideas. “Basecamp reduced the amount of internal email by 75 percent and increased project transparency by three times because everyone now has access to project updates,” Bryant says.  This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.center_img 4 min read September 11, 2014 Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
