Sergio Aguero scored a controversial opener he appeared offside but conceded an equaliser, by Vurnon Anita, and are now 12 points behind leaders Leicester City with four games and 12 pointsavailable left to play.However, Stoke City arrive on the back of a poor run which has seen them lose their last two games while conceding eight goals, including last Monday’s 4-0 home thrashing by title-chasing Tottenham.And away from home they have scored just 18 goals. However, when they met City in December at the Britannia Stadium they won 2-0 with a brace from Marko Arnautovic, a win sufficient to topple Manuel Pellegrini’s men off the top of the Premier League.It was the first time Stoke had scored more than one goal in a Premier League game against City. However, last season, Stoke won 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium with a goal from Mame Diouf.That shock win ended a run of six Premier League visits without a win or a goal. In those previous six visits, Stoke had conceded 15 goals, including three on four occasions.City’s home record is not as impressive as in recent campaigns. They have lost five games, more than at any time since the 2008-09 campaign (six), with two to go there. But they have scored 41 home goals, the most in the Premier League.The home side recalled Vincent Kompany at Newcastle while Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna undergo tests for this game and ahead of next week’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.Stoke, meanwhile, miss Jack Butland, Glen Johnson, Jonathan Walters and Marc Wilson through injury while Erik Pieters serves the second of a two-game ban for collecting 10 yellow cards.last_img read more

Ethier is counting on stronger finish

Ethier is counting on stronger finish

first_imgVERO BEACH, Fla. – Andre Ethier forced his way to the big leagues last summer, then forced his way into the Dodgers’ starting lineup before ultimately forcing his way into a crowded field of candidates for the National League Rookie of the Year award. But almost as quickly as he had risen to prominence – indeed, more quickly – the left-handed left fielder collapsed down the stretch because of a right shoulder that bothered him all season and the fact that he never had played past Labor Day in the minors. “(Hitting coach) Eddie (Murray) told him that every day last spring, but he didn’t believe it,” Little said. “It was tough for him to do, because he was trying to make the team. This guy was a tireless worker, and he was in the batting cage all the time. I think he learned from that and carried it into this spring.” Mega-hyped prospect Andy La Roche, who will be given a chance to beat out Wilson Betemit for the every-day third-base job but probably is ticketed for Triple-A Las Vegas, might see action in the outfield toward the end of camp. “Our number one plan with Andy is to get him to the major leagues as quickly as we can,” Little said. “I just let him know that if there are more choices for what he can do if he is on our ballclub, then maybe he will get to the big leagues sooner.” La Roche, whose power potential offsets any concerns about his defense, said he is fine with playing the outfield. “I don’t care where I play,” he said. “I have been tracking balls and shagging in batting practice a lot, just trying to get a read off the bat. It’s a little different from playing third base. “I prefer the infield somewhere, but if they want me to play the outfield, then that’s fine, too.” The Dodgers agreed to terms with nine of their “zero-to-three” players. They signed pitchers Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, Zach Hammes, Tim Hamulack, Eric Hull, Hong-Chih Kuo and Greg Miller; and outfielders Matt Kemp and Jason Repko. tony.jackson@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He also is moving from left field to right field to make room for his long-time role model and new teammate, Luis Gonzalez. In doing so, Ethier is determined to prove the first four months of his rookie season are a more accurate barometer than the final four weeks. Ironically, that doesn’t mean working harder in spring training. center_img “Camp is a lot different this year,” Ethier said. “Last year, I was doing a lot of extra work just trying to show what I could do. This year, I’m kind of back to my old routine that I developed in the minor leagues, where I just come in and get my work done and try to do everything right without feeling like I have to prove anything. “I still have to go out and make the club, but it’s a lot nicer knowing that everyone has had a chance to see me play for a season and knows what I can do.” Ethier was promoted to the majors when Ricky Ledee went on the disabled list May 2, a point when Ethier was hitting .349 at Triple-A Las Vegas. He wound up batting .308 in the majors with 11 homers and 55 RBIs. But after hitting well above .300 in each previous month, Ethier fell off to .132 in a homer-less September. It was with an eye toward that last statistic that manager Grady Little asked Ethier to take a more laid-back approach to camp this year. last_img read more

Quake alert has a long way to go

Quake alert has a long way to go

first_imgIn 2005, a workshop on earthquake early warning was held at the California Institute of Technology and drew dozens of researchers. But the idea had been talked about well before then. In 1868, a doctor named J.D. Cooper wrote an editorial in the San Francisco Daily Evening Bulletin calling for the creation of an earthquake early warning system using electric wires and a bell hung from a tall building in the center of the city. Mexico City has been devastated by earthquakes, most notably a 1985 temblor that killed thousands. In the years after that quake, a system to warn residents of an approaching earthquake was developed. In 1995, a quake was detected, and residents were warned by radio broadcast. But experts say Mexico City’s system benefits from a geographical quirk Southern California doesn’t have. Most earthquakes that hit Mexico City come off the West Coast, hundreds of miles away, and instruments can detect them before they hit the city, experts said. In Southern California, fault lines cross urban and rural areas alike, making early detection more difficult. In the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, Santa Clarita was about a dozen miles from the epicenter, but it was right in the path of the quake’s strongest thrusts, said Adele Macpherson, emergency manager and community services superintendent for the city. “I had to hold on to the side of the bed to keep from getting thrown in the air,” she said, recalling the early morning shaker. She remembers a sky full of stars, an eerie result of the city’s fog of electrical lights blacking out. She also remembers mobile homes shaken off their moorings and firefighters scrambling to extinguish blazes caused by ruptured gas lines. “Sporadic fires and explosions all around, gas and electric connectors, and the earth just didn’t stay still,” Macpherson said. If a system could warn of a quake before it reached a city, the damage would still be extensive. But elevators could be triggered to let passengers off at the next floor, computers could automatically turn off to save data, and telephone traffic could be rerouted to help residents communicate after a quake, experts say. Preliminary studies on earthquake early warning are under way at the University of Southern California, the University of California at Berkeley, and California Institute of Technology, Goltz said. “All three of these efforts are basically looking at algorithms,” he said. “Looking at ways in which an evolving seismic sequence can be translated, if you will, into some type of an advance warning for communities that are somewhat distant from the source of the earthquake.” In an ideal situation, an earthquake originating on the San Andreas fault around the Salton Sea could be detected before it rumbled through the Los Angeles Basin, Goltz said. In Japan, an earthquake early warning system has already worked for detecting quakes and warning of their approach, according to Shigeki Horiuchi, an expert on the system who works for the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention. “I think the construction of (an earthquake early warning system) in Southern California (needs a) huge number of stations,” Horiuchi said by e-mail. “Good EEW needs stations with space density of 5kilometers to 10kilometers because most of (the) large earthquakes in California occur beneath land area close to big cities.” Experts say Japan has more earthquake-detecting devices than Southern California, which gives it a head start. The Japanese hope to have a system in place to issue mass warnings in September, Horiuchi said. In Southern California, researchers say they’re a long way from replicating what Japan has done. Building a complete system would require a huge public outreach campaign. “The costs are somewhat unknown,” Goltz said. “And it depends upon whether or not potential users are willing to make certain kinds of changes or investments.” Researchers say funding for a warning system is always talked about after a major quake but soon forgotten. Ken Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey, has looked into the possibility of using global positioning technology to warn of approaching earthquakes. But he said a complete system is still a long way off. “There hasn’t been enough money to do anything beyond very simple research and development,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Earthquake early warning systems have been developed with varying effectiveness in Mexico City and parts of Japan. In California, university researchers are doing preliminary studies on a warning system – but their work has barely gotten to the drawing board. A California warning system has been talked about for more than a century, but years of work remain. And all the effort would be for a system that would give limited warning – or none at all, depending on where a quake starts. “We’re talking about a few seconds to a few tens of seconds,” said Jim Goltz, earthquake and tsunami program manager for the governor’s Office of Emergency Services. “If you get a few seconds of advance warning, I think that you could reasonably expect schoolchildren to take self-protective measures,” he said. “I think you could alert people to move away from hazardous materials or hazardous situations.” The 1994 Northridge Earthquake struck without warning, killing dozens as it shook buildings for miles and downed freeways in the Newhall Pass. Nothing could be done to alert residents as the quake devastated the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. But someday, experts say, an earthquake warning could go out to Southern California residents under the right conditions. If a quake is centered in the desert, electrical signals could warn of its approach seconds before deadly waves of ground movement roll into populated areas. last_img read more

Defender set to hand Tottenham huge boost

Defender set to hand Tottenham huge boost

first_img Tottenham star Kyle Walker 1 Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that defender Kyle Walker will finally make his long-awaited return to first-team action in the next couple of weeks.Walker has been sidelined since March with a pelvic injury which forced him to miss the World Cup Finals during the summer.After undergoing surgery, the 24-year-old has finally resumed full training and is now hoping to put his injury torment behind him.Tottenham have struggled in defence this season and Pochettino will be desperate to see him back in action in the next few games.Pochettino said: “He’s close, he started to train with the group this week. He’s getting better, he’s okay, but after his long injury we need time to recover his feeling and his form and for him to be fit and have the facility to play. He’s close, maybe [he can come back] in the next few weeks.”last_img read more

DWP “gave” money to the city of L.A.. If she were an L.A. DWP customer, she would see that at the bottom of our bill we customers already pay a 10 percent city utility tax. Evidently, some very high-powered lawyers think that they need a “validation” from the courts to “transfer” funds from the DWP to our city budget fund. Perhaps the DWP largesse to the city is entirely legal. The courts will decide. If LeDuc would like to move into the city of L.A., I’ll be glad to help. Re “House of Cards” (Our Opinions, Oct. 7): Great article, too bad it isn’t on the “Required Reading List” for the taxpayers and voters of Los Angeles. How about printing copies of same, and we can hand them out on the street corners of L.A., so our bill payers can see just how their city leaders are almost all in bed with special interest’s money. The recent pay increases for the DWP, and the bureaucrats in City Hall are just examples of how these special interests are in control of the ones who took the oath. Most of the people paying these bills are certainly not getting 20-plus percent increases in their abilities to pay. We all knew it was bad, but DN’s “the House of Cards” reveals to this reader, it is even worse than I ever suspected! – William Conroy – Kurt Fisher Van Nuys City government Re “L.A. vs. The People” (Oct. 4): How effective is our city government? Consider our Department of Water and Power. We can thank the greedy unions and gutless city politicians for the excessive DWP salaries, compared to the private sector. Then we have extravagant hidden taxes in the form of cash transfers to the city general fund from water and power revenues ($100 million to $200 million each year). And now the city plans to increase our DWP rates. Are we voters like lemmings rushing over the cliff? When do we wake up and vote Libertarian? – Bill Lyons Santa Clarita Social Security unfair Re “Poverty is no game” (Business, Oct. 7): No wonder Social Security is headed toward bankruptcy. Your story cites a 47-year-old former drug addict who seldom worked, yet is drawing $1,020 monthly from Social Security and awaiting Section 8 federally subsidized housing. I feel sorry for her plight – but how come she gets Social Security at age 47 while I and others paid in to the fund for some 50 years and had to wait until age 65 to draw out a meager monthly amount? This is unfair. It’s nuts! – Ken Green Burbank Air-traffic controllers Re “Controllers link LAX errors to staff shortage” (Business, Oct. 2): Regarding a shortage of air-traffic controllers, it should be a crime to let this happen. We are talking about hundreds of lives per airplane that could be in jeopardy. This should be the top priority on every city, county, state and federal government’s list. With all the frivolous spending that goes on I’m sure they could direct some of it to this important issue. They should have on the payroll controllers on the sidelines at all times to fill any and all vacancies that occur no matter if it is a sick day, vacation or retirement. Every time I get on an airplane now, I’m going to be thinking “I hope there are enough of you in that tower and you’re not overtired.” – Marie Mull Glendale Water usage Re “H2O woes” (Oct. 9): I commend the Daily News for its water-saving tips story. However, the given advice is but a mere Band-Aid fix. When will someone have the courage to step forward and proclaim the cause of the problem? There are too many people using too many resources in this region. The fix for this problem will require someone with even more courage to step forward and make a few hard changes. – Cesare Consaga Simi Valley Bush out of touch Besides being amazingly heartless, President Bush’s veto of the expanded State Children’s Health Insurance Program proves that he is even more out of touch with mainstream American families than his father was. Here’s a possible solution: Every president should be required to live with a typical American family for at least one week per year during his term in office. – John Blumenthal Westlake Village Nanny state is here State Sen. Jenny Oropeza opines in her guest column, “Law must protect California’s Children” (Their Opinions, Oct. 8) that the state is in charge of the daily lives of our children, not parents. Very scary stuff. Think about it, the left has set the rules on how we discipline (not abuse) our children. And now the state legislates what we can and can’t do with our children in a private vehicle. I’ll bet that soon, legislation will be passed controlling what we feed our children. If this is the case, then I have a suggestion for the Democrats in the Senate – ban the playing of violent rap in a car with a minor. Rap music damages the soul. – Patrick Henry Lake Balboa The seal’s theme Re “County Seal” (Your Opinions, Oct. 8): Martin Korn’s logic in his response re “County seal issue may go to top court” is underwhelming. He bemoans the fact that Muslims, Jews and Hindus were forced to endure having a cross affixed to their official documents. Yet, he is silent about Christians having to endure a pagan goddess of the harvest, which is at least 15 times the size of the little cross, affixed to theirs. Actually, he misses the entire point of the seal representing our history both communally and economically. His animus toward the Christian symbol is interfering with his reasoning skills. – Maureen C. Wiggins Lake View Terrace Political correctness Re “County Seal” (Your Opinions, Oct. 8): Martin Korn basically objects to a cross on the county seal because he believes county government forces the Christian religion on people. The cross above the Hollywood Bowl in the original seal was put there to signify the role of the Spanish priests in the history of California. The pagan goddess Pomona in the previous seal was replaced by an Indian maiden – probably to appease Christians for the removal of the cross. To me this indicates the ridiculousness of political correctness. – Warren Thompson West Hills GOP hypocrites Re “Dem hypocrites” (Your Opinions, Oct. 4): For Craig Hawley’s information, Brian McGough served in Afghanistan, was injured in combat in Iraq, and received the Purple Heart. Rush Limbaugh slimed him as a “phony soldier” for criticizing the Iraq war. McGough has challenged Limbaugh: “Ask me or any other member of VoteVets.org to come on your program. Until you have the guts to call me a phony soldier to my face, stop telling lies about my service.” Limbaugh is a hypocrite with draft deferments who will debate with McGough when pigs fly. – Alexander Freeman Thousand Oaks Don’t criminalize it Re “Don’t give up” (Your Opinions, Oct. 5): Candido Marez thinks that legalizing drugs is “not the answer.” Not the answer to what? This type of muddled thinking is the problem. In one stroke it would answer every problem associated with drugs. People must get over the fact that you cannot legislate morality. Criminalizing behavior just because you don’t approve of it is wrong. What another person chooses to consume is none of your business. If you believe that someone you care about is hurting themselves with their behavior, then by all means help them. Teach your children not to abuse any substance, be it drugs, alcohol or even food – but don’t criminalize it. – Jeff Clarke Simi Valley Win some, lose some For clarification – we won the Iraq war when we deposed Saddam Hussein and captured most of his henchmen, but we seem to be losing the occupation. – Sol Taylor Sherman Oaks Hallelujah Re “Battered Lakers get some time off” (Sports, Oct. 7): The season hasn’t even started yet and the Lakers are beat up already?

GOLDEN GIRL RION GETS HER GAISCE AWARD

GOLDEN GIRL RION GETS HER GAISCE AWARD

first_imgKillybegs girl Rion Breslin is pictured being presented with a Gaisce Gold Award by President Michael D. Higgins for her outstanding community work and significant personal achievements at a special awards ceremony in Dublin Castle.54 Gaisce Gold Awards were presented to young people who excelled and achieved their goals. DIT student Rion Breslin was among those presented with a Gaisce Gold Medal.Currently studying Business & Management in DIT Aungier Street, Rion’s Gaisce Gold medal journey is as follows: For her Community Involvement, Rion volunteered with St Catherine’s Accordion Band. Having been a member of the marching band for 11 years, in addition to playing the glockenspiel and the accordion, Rion’s job was to help out with both marching and music classes. The marching band has travelled to parades in Dublin, Dallas, Seattle and the Rose of Tralee, and Rion helped organise the band’s trip to London for the 2012 St Patrick’s Day Parade. From a very young age, Rion has had a passion for dancing, and so for her Personal Skill, she decided to set a goal of learning three new types of dance: Zumba, Jive and Pole, all of which were taught in her local town. Rion also wanted to maintain her fitness level so she felt that this was the perfect opportunity to complete all aims. She also set up her own dance school, ‘Spotlight’, catering for children under 12, which she ran successfully for three years. For her Physical Recreation, Rion decided to choose walking – an “ excellent way of clearing your mind and maintaining fitness”. The local marching band in Rion’s town started a walking group where each member donates to a selected charity at each walk . One St Stephen’s Day, the group walked and raised over €600 for the Irish Cancer Society. As part of her Adventure Journey, Rion embarked on a 7- day hike of El Camino de Santiago in Spain and covered roughly 20 km to 24 km per day. She found the lack of access to the internet and phones “refreshing”, and says she’ll never forget the sense of achievement when she finally arrived in Santiago. Finally, to complete her Gold Gaisce journey, Rion travelled with four others to the mountains of Talamarang, Nepal for the Residential part of the challenge. Rion volunteered in an orphanage called Little Angels Child Home for five nights, where she stayed in a mud shack, built by the people of Talamarang. Rion, along with a group of other volunteers, helped to prepare meals, plant crops, weed gardens, wash clothes and feed goats, and helped the children with their homework. Rion hopes to return to Nepal in the future and visit the Little Angels Home again.Superb! GOLDEN GIRL RION GETS HER GAISCE AWARD was last modified: February 28th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Gaisce aGold awardKillybegsPresident Michael D HigginsRIONlast_img read more

ARRESTED! GARDAÍ NAB HIT-AND-RUN DRIVE SUSPECT AFTER 60KM CHASE

first_imgThe scene of the crashBREAKING Exclusive: GARDAÍ have arrested a 20-year-old man after a 60km chase through Co Donegal on Wednesday.The arrest came just hours after a man driving a Nissan Primera fled the scene of a crash in Letterkenny. The driver of the car he smashed in to had to be treated in hospital for several injuries.That suspect had been tailed by Gardai from Ardara on Wednesday afternoon after he was spotted driving dangerously in the area. But instead of pulling over the man – believed to be a resident of Derry – continued to drive at speed.Attempts to stop the suspect using a Stinger device failed with Gardai fearing the driver could cause serious harm to other road users.The subsequent chase lasted close to an hour and came to a sudden and dramatic end in Letterkenny.He drove into an Audi A4 on De Valera Road – close to Letterkenny’s fire station – at 4.20pm, injuring the driver. The suspect then drove off, but had to abandon his car and fled on foot, leaving one of his shoes behind.He entered Tobin’s garage where he demanded staff call him a taxi, but when they refused he ran off towards LYIT.The one-shoed suspect was apprehended close to the Polestar roundabout later.He was taken to Letterkenny Garda Station where he is being held overnight. ARRESTED!
