A draw in Glasgow is considered a 9/2 bet.Click here to see all the available markets for the game, including goalscorers, correct score and much more.GAME PREVIEW Celtic may be dominating on the domestic front, but they are some way off the elite on the continent as this season’s Champions League has shown. Rodgers’ side have already lost heavily to Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern in Group B, conceding a total of eight and scoring none, which indicates just how big the gap they must bridge currently is.Despite that, they managed to record a 3-0 away win over Anderlecht, a result which sees them occupy third place in the group and, if they cannot book their place in the knock-out stage, they will be determined to ensure that they parachute into the Europa League at least.Bayern, meanwhile, are playing catch-up with PSG in the group, but the Bavarians appear to have regained some confidence in recent weeks following the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti and the instatement of Jupp Heynkes at the helm. They have won their last five games in call competitions, including back-to-back wins over RB Leipzig, and they have leapfrogged Borussia Dortmund into first place in the Bundesliga as a result.Victory against Celtic on Tuesday evening will bring their points tally to nine points and, while it will not necessarily guarantee their place in the last 16, it will put them on the brink of reaching that stage, which would be a massive boost ahead of their Klassiker clash against Dortmund, which takes place four days later.
About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say De Gea slams Man Utd: We must improve everywhereby Ansser Sadiq18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United goalkeeper David De Gea believes his side must improve in all areas to avoid further pain in the Premier League.United suffered a humiliating 1-0 defeat away to Newcastle United on Sunday. A Matty Longstaff long range strike was enough to give the Magpies all three points.The result left United only two points above the relegation zone after eight league games. De Gea was furious with his side as he spoke with reporters after the game.”We didn’t create any proper chances,” De Gea fumed on Sky Sports. “We defended well. The team needs to step up.”We have some big injuries but that’s no excuse. We are Manchester United, we need to keep training hard, fighting and winning games.”When asked where United can improve, De Gea said: “Everything. A lot of things to improve. I don’t know what to say.”Keep trying, fighting, improving every day. It’s a hard moment for us.”[This is] the most difficult time since I’ve been here. I don’t know why, what is happening. Sorry to the fans. We will keep fighting.”Come on, we conceded a goal from a corner. That cannot happen. It’s unacceptable.”
Josh Murphy insists he has been ignoring reports linking him with a move to Chelsea, instead focusing on securing promotion back to the Premier League with Cardiff City.The winger earned strong reviews during his debut top-flight season in 2018-19 despite Cardiff coming up short in their bid to avoid relegation to the Championship.Such performances have seen him linked with Crystal Palace and Burnley, as well as Chelsea; speculation that could prove distracting for a 24-year-old looking to get back to the top of English football. Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare But Murphy insists that his attention is fixed firmly on the fortunes of Cardiff and helping Neil Warnock’s side make an immediate return to the Premier League over the coming months.”I can tell you I took no notice of it [being linked with Chelsea]. I don’t know if there’s any truth in it, but I took no notice of it,” Murphy told Goal in an exclusive interview.”I wouldn’t say it is a distraction, stuff like that is always going to happen. There is a fine line about it being true and not true.”It is just something that I would never look into too deeply. It is the end of the season so you always get stuff like that. I see myself staying at Cardiff. Then we go from there.”You never know what the future holds but as of now I am a Cardiff player and I am gearing up to get ready to fight for promotion to the Premier League.”I have only been here for a season and I love it here. That’s my priority – to be at Cardiff and get Cardiff back to the Premier League.”While playing in the Championship can take a player away from the spotlight, the ever-increasing quality in England’s second tier has started to be recognised by those at the very top of the game.Daniel James has already completed a move to Manchester United following a breakout year for Swansea City in the Championship last term while Mason Mount’s performances on loan at Derby County from Chelsea earned him a call-up to the England squad in October.And Murphy, who has won youth caps at various England age-group levels, believes he too has what it takes to catch the eye of Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate ahead of the European Championship in 2020.”I have always had that self-belief in myself. I have always thought I had enough talent and belief to make it to the very top. The only person who was going to stop me was me. Now I am eventually where I wanted to be, playing Premier League football.“I feel like I did alright [in the Premier League]. I am always out there to improve and get better as a player. So, hopefully, I have impressed the right sort of people. I want to go out there and enjoy football, get goals and assists for the team and bring success to the club.”Any young English player’s dream is to play for England. Going through the England ranks, then my goal is to eventually play for the England team. That will come down to me, how well I play and if I can impress the right people. It is one of my dream goals to do and hopefully I can get there.”Murphy forms one half of English football’s most famous active twins, with brother Jacob currently plying his trade for Newcastle.Over the past few seasons the pair have been moved apart due to their respective transfers having played together for both QPR and Norwich City, having begun their footballing development at local London side Pitshanger Dynamo.And Murphy believes that it has been hugely beneficial to have Jacob by his side throughout the early years of his career, saying: “Being twins, you are always going to have your brotherly rivalry. Some days you are going to hate him, some days you are going to love him.”That’s like every brother and sister everywhere. We are always there to drive and push each other on.“If he scored more goals than me as we got older, it is not like I am going to resent him. It would be his job to go to me and say ‘come on, I am going to help you be better’. We were always going to try to keep driving each along to keep getting better, better and better. I feel like we have done that.”I used to be a centre-back and then Jacob played in midfield. As we started getting older, the positions started changing but they are my first early memories from playing football. I would stay at the back, smash it up for Jacob to run on and score.”A lot of the scores would end up maybe 15-2 or 20-4 or something like that. That’s just the way it works. As you start developing and getting older, you start trying new things, like you want to play in different positions. Now both of us are wingers and we are enjoying ourselves.”We would always get mistaken. Being identical twins, it is easy for that to happen. We are both wingers, but different types of wingers. I like to be out on the touchline, chalk on my boots and take defenders on one-versus-one.”He is more of a modern-day inside forward who likes to receive the ball in the pockets. We both have different attributes but we like playing differently in different styles. He will get the ball on the half-turn and stride through the middle of the pitch. I like to be completely out wide.“That’s the noticeable difference in the way we play. He is a bit more bulldog-ish than me with his running technique. I like to think I am more elegant and glide across the pitch. We have always played in the same team up until the first-team level. We even played in the same England youth teams.”We have done the whole journey together. It got to the point where he went to Newcastle and that was hard for me to take. We did everything together. He coped with it better than I did because he had six or seven loans in the meantime.”He was coming back to Norwich as a base. It was okay because I thought he was always coming back. When he moved to Newcastle, his career went one way and mine went the other way. Hopefully, our paths cross again.”Part of Murphy’s ambition is built on his love for the sport, which he still holds close.Growing up in London, being a fan of Newcastle but being built at Norwich City, Murphy has taken a different path to many around him.He watches the likes of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar and Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale as he looks to develop into the finished article and better himself as a player.”I am a Newcastle fan, so growing up it would always be Alan Shearer [who I watched]. Then it was [Jermain] Defoe because I was all about scoring goals. So it would be those sorts of players who were hot at the time.”When I was getting older it would be wingers who I would aspire to be like. Like Bale and Neymar. Like all the top wingers, I just try to be the best I can be. There are loads of things.”I want to learn and improve. That will come down to me. I want to get more goals so that’s something I will strive on.”
Yara, December 18, 2013 zoom Yara International ASA has entered into shipbuilding contracts with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) for the construction and delivery of 2 mid-size LPG carriers with an expected cost per vessel of USD 51 million.Following an evaluation of current new-build and time charter rates, Yara has chosen to build new vessels to cover part of its long-term transport requirement at attractive rates, meet stricter environmental regulations and maintain flexibility to serve Yara’s production system. Yara has a base ammonia transport requirement of approximately 4 million tons per annum to serve its European plants and long-term off-take agreements in Trinidad and Australia.Since time-charter contracts require a parent company guarantee of hire payments, a decision to build rather than charter vessels does not materially impact Yara’s debt capacity.Yara is in discussions with potential partners for combined ship management and equity participation, however Yara aims to retain majority ownership in the vessels.Yara is currently in discussions concerning further shipbuilding contracts for Handy-size vessels, which are expected to be finalized and announced in January 2014. 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站？确定 Print Close My location
zoom Bermuda-based crude oil tanker owner and operator DHT Holdings reported annual net income of USD 105.3 million for 2015, compared to net income of USD 12.9 million in 2014.According to the company, the increase comes as a result of strong fourth quarter results due to a stronger market as well as the delivery of the VLCC DHT Jaguar in November 2015.Net cash provided by operating activities for 2015 was USD 174.0 million compared to USD 30.6 million for 2014. The increase is mainly due to an increase in the fleet and higher freight rates in the 2015 period offset by increases in accounts receivables and reduction in accounts payables in 2015, DHT said.Net cash used by investing activities for 2014 was USD 551.3 million mainly related to the net investment in Samco of USD 256.3 million, the acquisition of three VLCCs totaling USD 148.0 million, pre-delivery installments of USD 133.9 million related to VLCC newbuildings ordered and capital expenses related to drydockings totaling USD 8.9 million.DHT has a fleet of 20 VLCCs, including four VLCCs under construction at HHI to be delivered fairly evenly spread between March and October 2016, one Suezmax and two Aframaxes as well as a 50% ownership in Goodwood Ship Management.Of the 19 vessels in operation, six of the VLCCs, the Suezmax and the two Aframaxes are on fixed rate time charters and 10 VLCCs have spot market exposure.

HALIFAX – Ikea is set to officially open its only store in Atlantic Canada on Wednesday as thousands from across the region are expected to descend upon the popular Swedish furniture chain’s new Halifax-area location.The store in the Dartmouth Crossing retail district — the size of four football fields, including its parking lot — features a bright, streamlined showroom with rooms that were furnished based on the needs of Maritimers.Ikea Canada president Marsha Smith said the company visited more than 70 local residences to determine what people in the Halifax area needed in their homes, such as waste storage solutions.“We have a lot of local architectural features such as fireplaces. The size of the windows are locally relevant. There are a lot of areas where you will see familiarity with what you see locally,” said Smith during an exclusive tour of the new store with The Canadian Press on Monday ahead of an evening media event.“We take a lot of time to do home visits and studies in the local area so that when you walk into the store, you should really see yourself.”Overlooking the store’s restaurant and seating area is a “living wall” — a floor-to-ceiling surface filled with green and yellow plants meant to help purify the air. Ikea Halifax also has a children’s play area and a massive warehouse stacked high with brown boxes containing the company’s trademark unassembled furniture.Social media has been abuzz since Ikea announced about two years ago it was opening a store in the region. It previously had a smaller location in the Halifax area, but it closed nearly three decades ago.“We really have seen a huge enthusiasm from the community and from the coworkers,” said Smith while sitting on a cream-coloured couch in a model living room at the entrance of the store’s showroom.Smith said the Halifax store is Ikea’s most sustainable in the country and also the first store to be LEED-certified.“That’s something that’s incredibly important to us,” said Smith, adding there are charging stations for electric vehicles in the parking lot and also a free light bulb and battery take-back service.“We have solar panels on the roof which help to generate electricity, which we then use in the building. We also have a solar wall on the side of the building and the way that works is that as air passes through, it actually heats the air and which reduces the heating we need to tap into.”The store employs about 250 people.The arrival of Ikea recently stirred up some local online controversy from people who took issue with the store being called Ikea Halifax. The building is in Dartmouth, which was once a separate city.Smith says the Halifax name was chosen because the company wanted to reach as many people as possible, from the Halifax area and beyond. The company compared this approach to other stores such as Ikea Montreal, located in the Saint-Laurent area of that city.The grand opening is on Wednesday.Follow (at)AlyThomson on Twitter.
LONDON — Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s British restaurant chain has become insolvent, putting 1,300 jobs at risk.The firm said Tuesday that it had gone into administration, a form of bankruptcy protection, and appointed KPMG to oversee the process.The company operates 23 Jamie’s Italian restaurants in the U.K.Oliver, known around the world for his cookbooks and television shows, said he was “deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the staff and our suppliers who have put their hearts and souls into this business for over a decade.”He said “I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected.”The Associated Press
BRAMPTON, Ont. — Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has announced a two-year extension to a program that allows manufacturers to write off eligible investments in new machinery faster.Details of the plan to extend the program to 2015 were announced at an auto parts plant in Brampton, Ont.Flaherty said that about 25,000 businesses in Canada have used the accelerated capital cost allowance program to buy new machinery.Flaherty says the measure, which involves a straight line 50% depreciation rate instead of a declining one, helps make Canada more competitive globally.The head of the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters association says the tax provision gives companies the capital they need to invest in improvements.
“The Latin American and Caribbean Youth Leadership Summit will help bring young people into the global network of committed and talented young professionals that we are establishing through a series of summits,” said Dr. Djibril Diallo, Chair of the UN youth leadership series and Director of the UN New York Office of Sport for Development and Peace.”Our goal is to provide the opportunities and the platform so they can become strong forces for change in the effort to meet the Millennium Development Goals.”The MDGs, agreed by Heads of State at the UN in 2000, call for the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger, primary education for all children, gender equality and empowerment of women, reduced child mortality, improved maternal health, combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases, environmental sustainability and forging a global partnership for development.Some 1,000 youngsters are expected to take part in the opening ceremony in Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais province, when Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will call on them to become partners with their governments in helping to solve the region’s problems.The participants, outstanding young people chosen by UN agencies for their achievements, leadership potential and commitment to social change, will use the appeal of sports as a tool for mobilizing support for the MDGs during the International Year of Sport and Physical Education 2005 (IYSPE 2005), Dr. Diallo said.UN experts on the MDGs will facilitate the discussions and provide guidance, he said.The summit is the third in the youth leadership series. African youth met last June in Dakar, Senegal, and Asians met last September in Hiroshima, Japan.

A Conservative MP has accused Tesco of “cynical” packaging after buying a product where the label covered a gap between two pieces of meat. James Cleverly, MP for Braintree, posted a picture of his beef short rib purchase from the supermarket chain on Twitter.The packet contained two pieces of meat, with a label across the middle of the box.An image posted by the politician showed that when the label was removed, beneath it the packaging was empty – meaning the item contained less meat than a customer might initially expect. The MP tweeted an image to show what the packet looked like with the label removedCredit:@JamesCleverly/Twitter Hey @Tesco I think this packaging is a bit cynical. If there is a good reason for that big gap I’m happy to hear it. pic.twitter.com/K1k1IN8wMz— James Cleverly (@JamesCleverly) March 11, 2018 Addressing his message to Tesco, Mr Cleverley said: “I think this packaging is a bit cynical.

Fri 2:33 PM Image: Shutterstock/Ink Drop By Hayley Halpin Image: Shutterstock/Ink Drop THE MET POLICE has dropped an investigation into whether the pro-Brexit campaign Leave.EU breached electoral law. On 5 August, the Met Police submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for advice in relation to its Leave.EU investigation. The force has said today that it is clear some technical breaches of electoral law were committed by Leave.EU in respect of the spending return submitted for their campaign.However, it noted that there is insufficient evidence to justify any further criminal investigation. “It was right to investigate the allegation, however following detailed enquiries it became apparent that the nature of potential breaches of the regulations, the criminal standard of proof required in court and the actions taken by Leave.EU to adhere to the regulations mean that it is now appropriate to take no further action,” Commander Alex Murray of the central specialist crime unit said.Leave.EU’s “responsible person” has been told that they will face no further police action.The full details of the technical breaches are fully detailed in the Electoral Commission report into the spending return dated 28 May 2018.The Met Police noted this should be read in conjunction with the county court judgement between Leave.EU Group Ltd and the Electoral Commission of 21 March 2019. Investigations into the spending returns of Vote Leave and BeLeave remain ongoing. https://jrnl.ie/4808065 6,638 Views 4 Comments As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Met Police drop investigation into whether Leave.EU breached electoral law Investigations into the spending returns of Vote Leave and BeLeave remain ongoing.

I must confess – since the first day I arrived in this, otherwise very hospitable, country, I anxiously seek and applaud with overwhelming pride (as if it’s my own achievement) any initiative with reference to my homeland, my language, my culture and in general, my ‘Greekness’. And yours. Perhaps deep down I am desperately seeking valid justification of my decision to move to another homeland, and maybe I find comfort in knowing I may be in a country where many other hearts beat to the rhythm of Greece. Just like mine. I admit that – generally – events held by the Greek populace in South Australia sometimes disappoint me due to the poor attendance, while at other times pleasantly surprise me. Don’t get me wrong. We are not always at fault. It could simply be a matter of numbers. Only a few thousand Greeks live in our small state. South Australia cannot and should not be compared to the large Greek populations of Melbourne and Sydney. Despite this, last Friday 23 October, having just arrived from sun-drenched Melbourne – whose large Greek community I envy – something magical happened. And, to quote friends, acquaintances, people of my age and other invited dignitaries: “This event was by far the most successful Greek community event held in South Australia in the last decade.” The South Australian Foundation of Hellenic Studies hosted the much-anticipated event/debate, Battle of the Codes, held in one of the rooms at the new sport complex at Adelaide Oval. In a simply ‘Greek’, casual and humorous discussion, four prominent Australian Greeks, connected by their heritage, clashed in the ‘ring’ and presented the reasons why their chosen sport was superior to the others. Wearing their ‘gloves’ for the night’s event were head coach of the Socceroos Ange Postecoglou, the veteran AFL legend Anthony Koutoufides, NRL administrator Nick Pappas and finally, rugby union referee and talented garden designer Costa Georgiadis. For the record, the derby was a draw between soccer and Australian ‘footy’. Significantly more important were the humour and sharp quotes by the four speakers, making the evening a great success for the approximately 500 guests who were reminded of the importance of the Greek parea, humour and of course, entertainment. Taking on the role of MC were two significant media personalities, journalists Angela Pippos and David Penberthy. The response from the crowd, in particular from the younger set, was without precedent. Closing the night’s presentation, as was anticipated, was one of the founding members of Hellenic Studies, businessman Theo Maras, who highlighted the large attendance for the event, emphasising that we should all be proud of the Greek community in South Australia and its response. Surprising many, Mr Maras expressed his personal gratitude to the treasurer of South Australia, Tom Koutsantonis, for his ongoing support to the Greek community in recent years, despite their ideological differences, and also thanked Costa Georgiadis who has actively supported the event for the last three years. Special mention was extended to Harry Patsouris, also a member of the board of the organisation and the man behind the scenes. Harry also gave a very moving speech and wholeheartedly thanked everyone who has supported Hellenic Studies, while confirming the rendezvous for next year, which is anticipated to have a gastronomical aspect to it, according to Mr Maras. There are a number of factors that can be attributed to the event’s success, including the excellent organisation, the highly-informative video screened – a campaign for the return of the Parthenon Marbles – and (as a self-declared hopeless romantic), the accompaniment of the bouzouki sounds and Pontian dancing that flooded the room, making us long and remember the homeland. But if you were to ask me for the one reason this night was marked with so much success, I would tell you this: Because, for the first time after living in this city for so many years, I saw so many second and third generation Greeks collectively honour and support an excellent event. Because, for the first time, young people turned their gaze timidly towards our community and maybe they liked what they saw. At last, second and third generation Greeks were displaying a willingness to tightly embrace their ‘Greekness’ and disseminate that which we all are – Greeks, regardless of origin, profession, religion and social status. For all those who attended, the Battle of the Codes was not merely another event. It was a sign that the best is still come. It is only fitting to conclude with the statement by president of the executive committee of the Foundation of Hellenic Studies Greg Crafter, who said we should all be so proud to be Greek. Did I mention that he is not even Greek? Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
