Crystal Palace 3-1 Liverpool: Jedinak’s stunner flattens lacklustre Liverpool

first_img1 Mile Jedinak’s stunning free-kick condemned Liverpool to their sixth Premier League defeat of the season, as Crystal Palace came from behind to win 3-1 at Selhurst Park.Liverpool made a lightning start when Rickie Lambert netted his first league goal of the campaign in the second minute of the match, but the hosts drew level with Dwight Gayle’s instinctive finish.And a pedestrian second half performance from Brendan Rodgers’ side was put to the sword by Palace, with Joe Ledley’s composed finish and Jedinak’s superb strike claiming the Eagles’ third league win of the campaign.A much-needed win for Neil Warnock’s side sends Palace two points clear of the relegation zone, while Liverpool’s third league defeat in a row means they remain in the bottom half.The visitors made the perfect start when Adam Lallana cleverly clipped the ball into the path of Lambert, who showed great composure inside the area, first chesting the ball under control before guiding a neat finish past Julian Speroni.But the home side were level 15 minutes later when Gayle’s quick reactions allowed the striker to poke the ball past Simon Mignolet after Yannick Bolasie’s thunderous attempt cannoned off the post.Palace, buoyed by their equaliser, began moving the ball with more purpose through the pace of Gayle, Bolasie and Jason Puncheon, posing a real threat to Liverpool’s fragile defence.And Bolasie then forced a fine diving stop from Mignolet, cutting in from the left before unleashing a swerving shot across the slippery surface.Liverpool probed forward with slick attacks but Lambert’s header and Steven Gerrard’s long-range effort failed to trouble Speroni.The home side made the stronger finish to the half with the energetic Bolasie involved once more. The 25-year-old led another swift counter-attack, cleverly combining with Puncheon before firing wide.And the winger then missed the chance to send his side ahead at the break, shooting over after Puncheon’s through ball.The second half failed to come to life in the early exchanges, with Liverpool lacklustre in possession and Palace lacking the same attacking thrust as before the interval.But a bright turn from Marouane Chamakh soon sparked appeals for a Palace penalty, though Javi Manquillo’s foul was deemed to be just outside the area by referee Jonathan Moss.Then, Puncheon’s in-swinging cross caused panic amongst the Reds’ defence, but the impressive Bolasie was unable to connect at the far post.In a see-saw period of the match, Glen Johnson’s low cross was scrambled clear but Puncheon’s slack pass ruled out any chance of a Palace breakaway.But the brilliant Bolasie created the decisive moment of the match, teeing up Ledley to put Palace in front.The winger superbly outsmarted Dejan Lovren down the right before pulling the ball back towards the Welshman who nonchalantly guided the ball through the legs of Mignolet.And Jedinak’s exquisite 30 yard free-kick sealed Liverpool’s fate ten minutes from time, drilling an unstoppable shot into the top corner to pile the pressure on Rodgers’ misfiring side.

$936 million needed for airwaves switch

$936 million needed for airwaves switch

first_img In terms of individual cost, the three most expensive moves are: the Department of Defense, at nearly $289 million, followed by the Department of Justice, at almost $263 million, and the Department of Energy, more than $173 million. The 90 megahertz represents a nearly 50 percent increase in the amount of spectrum, 185 megahertz, currently available, Gallagher said. There are more than 194 million wireless subscribers in the United States, representing more than 65 percent of the population, according to the Wireless Association, an industry trade group. The wireless industry welcomed the government’s announcement. “Not only will the wireless consumer and the nation’s economy benefit from the … auction, but today we have learned that the American taxpayer has emerged as a big winner as well,” said Steve Largent, president and chief executive of the Wireless Association. By law, the government was required to provide the Bush administration and Congress with cost estimates for the relocation and a timetable for the moves six months before the scheduled auction. It could take some agencies up to four years to complete the move. The 12 departments and agencies are: Defense, Justice, Energy, Agriculture, Treasury, Interior, Housing and Urban Development, Homeland Security, the Federal Aviation Administration, NASA, the U.S. Postal Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cell-phone companies and other wireless providers need the space – 90 megahertz worth – to help satisfy a growing appetite for advanced wireless services, said Michael Gallagher, a Commerce Department assistant secretary. Gallagher heads the department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, which compiled the estimate based on information from the affected agencies. He said the additional airwaves will help transform today’s wireless carriers “into the broadband providers of tomorrow.” “These frequencies will come online just when the industry needs them,” he said in an interview. WASHINGTON – Freeing wireless airwaves for industry by moving the Defense Department and 11 other agencies to new frequencies will cost almost $936 million, the government said Wednesday. Previous estimates from the industry had reached into the billions of dollars. The airwaves to be relinquished by the dozen agencies will be auctioned by the Federal Communications Commission as early as June. Legislation signed into law last year by President George W. Bush requires the auction to bring in at least 10 percent more than the government paid to move to the new spectrum. last_img read more
