Lopetegui faces its worst crisis on the bench of Seville

first_imgThree months later, Sevilla is back out of posts that give the right to dispute the Champions League the next season. And the reason is none other than a very poor start of the year for the third consecutive season in which they have joined 5 points of the 12 disputed, where the ridiculous perpetrated in Miranda de Ebro in the Copa del Rey, whose consequences are still paid, cannot and must not be ignored. When he calendar appeared clearer because of the qualifying situation of the rivals that they were going to face in the beginning of 2020, Sevilla has headed one downhill of which, for now, there are no glimpses of solutions. The alarms have gone on and the reasons are more than justified. The game plan who won matches and did better a staff with many shortcomings, it has disappeared. Nervión looks for solutions and although the pointing finger point to dock, Seville’s problems go much further. Lopetegui He moved the tree in Vigo and the solutions did not appear. The goal of En Nesyri don’t cover your lack of aim, Suso’s intermittency showed that the team needed speed in January and was not sought, the indolence of Banega It is still confirmed since his retirement in Arabia was made public, the ownership of discarded players in summer …last_img read more

Liverpool set for Nike deal after winning case

first_imgNew Balance claimed to have triggered a clause in the current deal which would allow them to maintain the contract for another five years come June 1, 2020 if it matched the terms of any competitor’s offer.Nike’s £30 million-a-year offer for the next five years falls short of the reported £40 million New Balance currently pay per season.However, Liverpool will also earn royalties of 20 per cent on all net sales of merchandise barring footwear plus bonuses for winning the Champions League and Premier League.According to a report in The Athletic, Liverpool hope to bank £60-£70 million in total per year from the Nike deal.Mr Justice Teare found that “the New Balance offer on marketing was less favourable to Liverpool FC than the Nike offer” as the company could not match Nike’s offer to use “global superstar athletes”.“It must follow that Liverpool FC is not obliged to enter into a new agreement with New Balance,” the judge said.In a statement, a Liverpool spokesman said: “Liverpool FC is pleased with the judge’s decision to rule in favour of the club following the legal dispute with our current kit supplier, New Balance.“We will continue with New Balance for the current season, in combination with preparing next season’s Liverpool kits with our new supplier.”0Shares0000(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s kit deal with New Balance will finish at the end of the season © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 25 – Liverpool won a court battle with shirt manufacturers New Balance on Friday, paving the way to sign a lucrative new deal with Nike from the 2020/2021 season.A judge ruled in favour of the European champions’ case that New Balance could not match Nike’s enormous distribution network and promise to market Liverpool via “superstar athletes and influencers” such as LeBron James, Serena Williams and Canadian rapper Drake.last_img read more

These five Premier League players could be exactly who Liverpool need to sign

first_img 5 Ryan Bertrand (Southampton) – While James Milner has performed well at left-back, he isn’t the long-term answer. Liverpool have to sign a first-choice option in this position and they might well return to Southampton for business. Since leaving Chelsea two years ago, Bertrand’s development at St Mary’s has been excellent and he could be yet another player the club are encouraged to cash in on. Composed on the ball and a threat in attack, it’s easy to see him suiting Klopp’s Reds. 5 5 Michael Keane (Burnley) – Determining the strongest centre-back partnership should be a priority for Klopp in the summer. Joel Matip, arriving on a free transfer last summer, is his strongest option, but neither Dejan Lovren nor Ragnar Klavan complete an intimidating heart of the Reds defence. Keane has started all but one game for Burnley this season, with his form earning him a place in the senior England squad. Entering the final 12 months of his contract, the defender’s understood to be on his way out in the summer and it would be hard to believe Liverpool aren’t one of the reported clubs to have made an offer for his signature. Liverpool might want to look close to home when compiling their wish list for the summer transfer window.While many clubs opt to complete business overseas, signing players who have proven their ability to perform in the Premier League should be the more appealing option.And with Liverpool’s goalless draw to Southampton highlighting how much work the Reds team still requires, talkSPORT has picked five currently plying their trade in England’s top flight that Jurgen Klopp might want to consider signing in the summer.Scroll through the gallery above to check out the five players chosen.ALSO SEE: JORDAN PICKFORD – SUNDERLAND GOALKEEPER’S STATS FOR THE SEASON 5 Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea City) – click the arrow above, right, to check out four other Premier League players Liverpool should consider signing – Whether the Swans stay in the top flight or make the drop to the Championship, keeping hold of Sigurdsson might be a task too difficult for Paul Clement. The Iceland international, despite Swansea’s largely miserable campaign, has been outstanding, scoring nine and assisting 12 to keep the Liberty Stadium faithful from drowning in their sorrows. It might seem as though Liverpool have enough creative midfielders but the truth is, a spark is still missing in attack. Add to this the likelihood of persistent injuries under Jurgen Klopp and reinforcements in the playmaking department should be high on the agenda. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – Oxlade-Chamberlain delivered arguably his best performance of the season in the 2-0 defeat over Manchester United at the weekend, assisting both goals. Being in and out of the team has clearly affected his confidence and there is a growing feeling that he will never fulfil his potential at the Emirates, certainly not under Arsene Wenger. Jurgen Klopp would encourage him to take his game to a new level and such belief in his talent could see him establish a spot at Anfield. His ability to play out wide or centrally in a midfield position would be a major bonus to Klopp. 5 Jordan Pickford (Sunderland) – Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, despite the latter’s improved form, are not of the quality required for Liverpool. Pickford, to some, might seem even more of a gamble given this is his first campaign of senior top flight action, but they would be signing a player with perhaps a decade of service to provide the club. Only Tom Heaton (132) has made more saves than the Sunderland goalkeeper (120) this season and the Black Cats will struggle to keep hold of him in the summer. last_img read more

Mental health crisis needs bigger budget – McConalogue

first_imgCharlie McConalogue says the mental health budget must be increased so that services can be improved and developed.Fianna Fáil raised the issue during Private Members Business in the Dáil this week.Deputy McConalogue explained, “There has been significant under investment in mental health services over the past five years, which has led to serious backlogs in waiting lists and problems accessing services. The current system of allocating funding year on year has to be changed and multi-annual budgeting introduced. This would allow for the proper provision and development of mental health services. “Improving mental health services is a key priority for Fianna Fáil and we negotiated a commitment in the Confidence & Supply agreement with Fine Gael that “A Vision for Change” would be fully implemented. However, in order to do this, funding will have to be increased.“The future of mental health services cannot be allowed to fall off the government agenda. If there is just €15m in new funding available it will not be enough and could jeopardise current service levels.“We urgently need to address staff shortages within the health sector. Posts are being left vacant for months, and in some cases, years and this is having a major impact on waiting lists and assessment programmes. “Fianna Fáil is calling on the Government to set out how exactly it intends on achieving full implementation of the country’s mental health strategy. We have made it clear that mental health spending can’t be put on the backburner, so it’s time for Fine Gael and their Independent colleagues to spell out their plan for mental health services”.

Western bean cutworms count rising and eggs hatching

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have seen a large increase in Western Bean Cutworm catches (see figure), which is typical for this time of year. Given the heat in the forecast later this week, it might be safe to say that we are into peak flight.  We have also heard of eggs hatching—as more adults emerge, more eggs will be laid. Now is the time to scout your corn for egg masses, especially if they have not tasseled yet. Economic threshold is more than 5-8% of corn (10 plants in 10 locations) with egg masses.last_img read more

Don’t Assume China Mimics US-Style Social Media

first_imgRelated Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… China enjoyed center stage this week thanks to President Obama’s visit. Naturally, trade relations were on the agenda.For Internet companies sitting in the US, news reports that chronicled the President’s every move in China were a visible reminder of the business opportunity that may seem a click away.This guest post was written by Wei Wang.So, why not export social media to China just like KFC and American Idol? After all, seeing Yao Ming, arguably China’s grandest international star, on Facebook and Twitter, one naturally figures, aside from the language and periodic blocking of websites, “What’s the diff?”But Facebook has gained little traction in China (with only 390,000 users), and tweets have virtually ground to a halt since the government started blocking Twitter, and these factors point to the “diff.”Simply flinging an American product into the Chinese market won’t succeed, because every social media category has a Chinese equivalent that is tuned to the particular needs of the mainland Chinese market.One of China’s “Facebooks,” Kaixin001.com, has already secured over 40 million users since launching only last year. The platform gained its initial popularity through applications that you would recognize from the real Facebook, such as “Friends for sale” and “Parking wars” – but with a Chinese twist.Take, for example, the application called “Xingming Yuanfen,” in which you type in a friend’s name to test your “yuanfen” (i.e. your predetermined relationship with that person). Another application explains who you were in your previous life. It turns out I was a bandit, much to the chagrin of my parents.These “fortune-telling” applications enjoy incredible popularity on computers and mobile phones. While fortune-telling jars Western sensibilities, it remains a part of Chinese culture.The B-B-what?But the best example of China walking to the beat of its own drummer is the continued popularity of the BBS.That’s not a typo.That is the same bulletin board system that went by the wayside in the US with dial-up modems and US Robotics. Chinese students – who, like their counterparts in the US, are more open to experimentation than other segments – established the foundation for BBS’ to flourish in China.All major universities operate their own BBS. Peking University and Tsinghua University (which are the Harvard and MIT of China) host the Weiming BBS (named after Weiming Lake at Peking University) and Shuimu Tsinghua BBS, respectively.With 10+ years’ worth of graduates who grew up on BBS’ now driving the Chinese Internet market, these same people have fueled a range of BBS sites tied to their interests and professions. According to the latest CINIC (China Internet Network Information Center) report, roughly 30% of Chinese Web users spend a significant amount of time on a BBS. So, these sites certainly transcend geekdom.55BBS, for example, is an online community where users share discount information, coupons and other creative ways to land a good deal. Users also share news of what they got from their latest shopping spree, showing off a photo of skin care products as if it were a trophy.Perhaps the most unique phenomenon in China is Tianya, the #1 BBS, with almost 30 million users.What is Tianya? Think of it as a gathering place for an eclectic blend of intellectuals, journalists, freelancers, professors, researchers, gadflies, etc. Users write on and comment about sensitive social issues that may be off-limits to mainstream media. People also head to this forum to gossip about celebrities (okay, some things don’t change between cultures). A Chinese word has been coined for BBS evangelists: “Da’rens,” which roughly means “people who really know how to do something.” We’re now starting to see some “Da’rens” parlay their popularity into commercial success. The famous makeup Da’ren known as Arora started out writing about cosmetics on a BBS before launching a blog for the mega-portal Sina.com.From a Chinese perspective, the fundamental difference between a blog and BBS is that a BBS allows for anonymity, which appeals to the introversion of many Chinese. Blogging is also more of a solitary activity, with readers chiming in with comments later. The BBS, on the other hand, is more of a collaborative undertaking, which also appeals to the Chinese.This all means that Internet companies from the US looking to crack the mainland Chinese market need to do their homework and tailor their products accordingly.Here’s an easy litmus test when planning your market entry in China: “What’s the difference between the US and Chinese version of your product?”If the answer takes more than 60 seconds to explain, then you’ve got a fighting chance.Wei Wang is a digital consultant with The Hoffman Agency, a communications consultancy with offices in Beijing (where Wei is based) and Shanghai, as well as throughout Asia, the US and Europe.

How to Achieve Perfect Slow-Motion Results in Post

first_imgOvercranking in camera will give you the option to achieve beautiful slow-motion work in post. But if you don’t follow the right formula in the editing room, your results will be less than ideal.The 180 degree shutter rule states that your shutter speed needs to be double that of your frame rate. So if you’re shooting at 24p, you’ll want your shutter speed to be set to 1/48. If your shutter speed is any higher or any lower, you’ll get unwanted results — either a sharp “fast-frame effect” or a slow-motion blur.If you’ve been shooting for a while, then this may be second nature to you. But in the editing room, things can often get confusing for filmmakers…Let’s assume you’ve captured a 48fps clip at a 1/96 shutter speed. In post, if you were to slow that clip down to 50%, you’d end up with a perfect slow-motion effect since it would effectively play back at 24fps with a 1/48 shutter. But if you didn’t slow that clip down at all, and just dropped it into a 24fps timeline, you’d essentially be working with a 24p equivalent shot that has a 1/96 shutter speed instead of 1/48. This would give your footage that fast-frame look I described earlier and clearly wouldn’t adhere to the 180 degree shutter rule.The point of all this, is that it’s very important to know the exact percentage you need to slow your footage down in post in order to maintain that 180 degree shutter. The 48fps example is an easy one, since it’s exactly double that of 24fps.Here are some common overcranked frame rates with the respective percentages they should be slowed down to in post (in a 24p project/timeline):30fps  = 80%48fps  = 50%60fps  = 40%80fps  = 30%96fps  = 25%100fps = 24%120fps = 20%150fps = 16%180fps = 13%240fps = 10%If you’re working with a frame rate that’s not on this list, you can simply use this formula to calculate your target percentage:24 / Amount of FPS = Slow Motion Percentage.And of course if you’re shooting in a different frame rate (such as 25fps PAL or 30fps NTSC), then simply use your project frame rate in place of “24” in the formula. The video below from Vimeo user –jL explains shutter speeds in detail and has some great examples of how different shutter speeds will affect your footage. Got any additional slo-mo tips for your fellow videographers and filmmakers?
