Tottenham is no longer looking to secure Wilfried Zaha after finding out Crystal Palace kept the Premier League winger monetary value at an incredible £70million.Zaha has been one of the high-profile targets Tottenham have been considering to secure since they’re determined to back coach Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer window this summer.The 25-year-old had a superb season at Palace and assisted in keeping them in the Premier League. Despite now representing Ivory Coast at international level, he would still crucially count as a homegrown player in their Champions League squad next term due to coming through Palace’s academy.How Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.It seems Palace have no intention of selling Zaha as it’s obvious he is one of their backbone assets, they also put him in a similar bracket as Riyad Mahrez, who could soon be joining Manchester City from Leicester for £75m, but instead of cashing in, Roy Hodgson’s side are actually planning to offer Zaha another new contract, according to Standard Sport.He agreed on a five-year deal with Palace worth around £110,000 a week in May 2017. The plan then was to scare off other clubs from pursuing him and as we can see, that’s really the case too.Tottenham see Zaha as an upgrade on the inconsistent Erik Lamela, as well as an option to play up front.
The French striker will now play in the Ligue 1 club Lyon, but before he left he sent a message to the Bhoys and Ghirls supportersFrench forward Moussa Dembele decided to quit Scottish Premiership team Celtic in order to join Ligue 1 side, Lyon.The £19.7 million transfer was done just before the transfer deadline.But before he left, he sent a heartful letter to his fans using Twitter.“My journey at Celtic has come to an end and it’s time for me to embrace a new challenge,” he said as reported by The Scotzine.“Through my journey at Celtic, I have experienced many great memories that will last with me forever.”“My purpose was always to bring you joy and happiness,” he added.“You will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget my time at Celtic, simply because you are special people.”Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“I’m not gonna lie to you, I will miss playing against Rangers and the particular excitement that it brings, but I have other challenges ahead that I’m looking forward to,” he explained.“Every time I will watch Celtic I will remember that day when you were singing ‘I saw Dembélé on the telly he scored a hat-trick against them…’ That September derby when we annihilated Rangers was surely the moment we fell in love. DEMBELTION.”“We went to the Champions League together, we conquered Glasgow together, planted our flag on rival territory together, we lost a few… but won a lot,” Dembele commented.“I am leaving feeling that I have achieved everything I can as a Celtic player. I feel truly blessed and proud to be in Celtic’s history book as an invincible and double treble winner.”“THANK YOU to all the fans across the world and the charity foundation. THANK YOU to the people at the club; the manager and the coaching staff, my teammates and the board members. THANK YOU to the office people, security staff, cleaners and kitchen workers. THANK YOU, EVERYONE, in the background that the public doesn’t see but make this club so special,” he concluded.pic.twitter.com/mROtRTBHfK— Moussa Dembélé (@MDembele_10) September 1, 2018
Marcelo Bielsa has done it again, he went from being highly beloved and revered at Leeds United, to being hated by the fans in record time.The stories about Marcelo Bielsa not being able to manage his clubs properly in the past are countless, but he has fallen from grace in record time at Leeds United this time. It took only a few days for the fans to consider him a world-class manager, to completely question the decisions he made before the international break. The Argentine manager decided to send striker Patrick Bamford to the under 23 squad for an unknown reason, but knowing Bielsa’s troubled relationships with players they must have had a falling out and Bielsa reacted poorly as always. This decision took the worst turn possible a few days ago, as the €8 million striker who arrived this summer to Leeds, suffered a nasty knee injury that will keep him out of competition for the next four months. The fans at the English club can’t give credit to the situation, because they consider the player an essential part of the new project, but Bielsa’s decision backtracks it quite a bit from this moment forward.? | #LUFC striker Patrick Bamford faces four months on the sidelines after suffering a PCL injury during last Friday’s U23s game— Leeds United (@LUFC) September 11, 2018This news comes in one of the most crucial moments in the first half of the season, because international breaks can sometimes be detrimental to any club that was doing great before the break and then decrease their performance level dramatically afterward. Leeds United’s Director of Football issued a statement after the news of the player’s condition broke and said: “This is clearly disappointing news for Patrick and for everyone at Leeds United. Patrick has settled in well, quickly becoming an important player for Marcelo Bielsa and a popular part of the group. We have an excellent medical team at the club and Patrick is in the best possible hands, he will be back available to us during an important part of the season and he will still play a key role in our campaign,” said Victor Orta in the statement that revealed the time that the player would be out of competition. But the repercussion of this new development at Leeds United will affect Marcelo Bielsa even more than the player himself, because this is a pattern that has appeared in the past for the manager in previous jobs.£10m signing ❌Top scorer ❌Best midfielder ❌In-form defender ❌It’s all mounting up for table-topping Leeds, but Marcelo Bielsa says he has a plan… ? https://t.co/vd2DMsuS9N #lufc pic.twitter.com/rz0oJfoXKhTop 5 best players from the international break weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After a fresh international break just came to an end, we need to talk about the Top 5 best players during this whole weekend.We…— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) September 13, 2018Bielsa’s past in Chile and Athletic Club.The Argentine manager has had some very interesting runs with the Chile National Team and Spanish side Athletico Club, but in both instances he had to step down due to the poor relationship he had with the players and eventually the fans. With Chile the stories go more along the lines of the manager outright disrespecting the players by calling them names and having violent verbal outbursts, more of the same happened with the Spanish club. But in both instances, Marcelo Bielsa left a very important legacy that gives him a street cred that very few managers in the world can get. He transformed Chile into a very competitive side during his time there and many credit the two Copa America trophies the squad won to his teachings, he also reached the Europa League final with Athletic Bilbao back in 2012 but lost it against Atletico Madrid. With Leeds United, something very similar is happening as Bielsa has two victories and two draws in the first six games of the season and has surprised English football with his offensive style of play. But his problems outside the field could be his downfall, once again.Bielsa: ‘I’m not familiar with the atmosphere at #Millwall – but I can’t think of any fans who would have more influence than ours.” That sounds like a challenge, Lions fans.

It is the second power failure at Cheshire Hall reported in recent months; it was explained that FortisTCI was working with the hospital to figure out the power failure.

WASHINGTON — The Senate Judiciary Committee approved legislation Thursday making gun trafficking a federal crime as lawmakers cast the first vote in Congress to curb firearms since December’s horrific shootings at a Connecticut elementary school.The panel was also debating bills banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, requiring background checks for nearly all gun purchases, and providing more money for schools to buy video cameras and other safety equipment.The committee approved the gun trafficking measure on an 11-7 vote. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, was the only Republican to vote in favor of the measure, whose chief sponsor was the panel’s chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.Evidence was abundant of partisan clashes ahead as the two parties sparred over the need to limit firearms.Leahy said he hoped senators would make significant progress this week on curbing gun violence.Grassley said everyone wants to prevent more killings like the deaths of 20 first-graders and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. But he said gun control does not work and accused Democrats of wanting to “impose more gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens.”All four measures were expected to pass the committee. But their fate when the full Senate considers them, probably in April, is less certain. The trafficking measure by Leahy, D-Vt., was thought to have the best prospects, while the assault weapons ban by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., seemed to have the slimmest chance.
Smoke seeping out of a shuttered restaurant on East Fourth Plain Boulevard led authorities to a suspected metal and wiring thief Wednesday afternoon.Firefighters responded to a call of smoke blowing out a window of the closed El Rancho Viejo Mexican restaurant, 6321 E. Fourth Plain Blvd.When they arrived on the scene at around 3 p.m., they confronted a man who allegedly had been attempting to strip metal wiring from the back corner of the building, said Drew Tracy, a battalion chief with the Vancouver Fire Department. Officers from the Vancouver Police Department also responded to the 911 call and took the suspect into custody.Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department, said a man was taken into custody near the restaurant on an outstanding warrant. His name was not immediately available.Tracy said it looked like the man had used paper as a starter to try to burn the wiring and other metal out of the building.Occupants of a passing car saw smoke billowing out the building and called 911, Tracy said.He said the building wasn’t damaged. The building has been empty for months.The building has attracted attention in the past, Tracy said.“It’s a dilapidated building,” Tracy said, “and it’s been damaged by people multiple times.”Authorities said it’s common for thieves to break into empty buildings and strip them of wiring. Metal wiring is easy to scrap and sell for money.
Two-thirds of Clark County adults are overweight or obese. Laina Harris of Camas is one of those adults. At her heaviest, Harris weighed 420 pounds. Today, she’s lighter and armed with the resolve to lose more. This is part of an occasional series followingher journey.In 14 hours, Laina Harris saw her biggest goal slip through her fingers.For more than a year, Harris has been training for an 8-mile hike along the south side of Mount St. Helens. But two weeks before the Aug. 30 hike, Harris had to do something she never wanted to do: admit defeat.That confession came after a spirit-crushing hike on the Mount Defiance Trail.Harris and her hiking buddy set out on the trail for a 12-mile round-trip hike with 4,500 feet in elevation gain. They got a bit of a late start and slowed at points to chat with other hikers. By the time Harris reached her 4 p.m. turn-around deadline — a time limit she set for herself — they weren’t quite half-way.So Harris ignored the deadline, something she has never done. The result was a slow descent as the hikers carefully made their way down the mountain in the dark. Harris wasn’t off the mountain until 11 p.m. Her feet throbbed. Her body ached.The trip took 14 hours — the same amount of time she would have to complete the more-challenging Mount St. Helens hike.“I knew I lost Mount St. Helens then,” she said.Harris was devastated. After that day, she began to feel as if the world around her was crumbling.Not only was Mount St. Helens out of grasp — at least, for this year — but while recovering from her July 5 gallbladder surgery, Harris lost momentum in her exercise program and gained weight. She was working full time in an office that was understaffed. The pressure of her decision to go back to school full time was mounting. Relationships in her personal life were strained. And, out of nowhere, Harris received the bombshell news that she has a sister she never knew existed.
SALT LAKE CITY — The last of the Utah counties that were holding out on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples reversed course Thursday and decided to hand out licenses to all eligible applicants.Officials for the four holdouts — Box Elder, Utah, Piute and San Juan counties — told The Associated Press they made the decision to offer licenses to same-sex couples.County clerks say they had little choice after an appeals court Tuesday declined to intervene and halt gay marriage. U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby on Friday ruled that Utah’s ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional, sending gay couples rushing to clerk offices for licenses.The state is preparing an appeal.The Utah attorney general’s office had said counties could be held in contempt of federal court if they refused to comply.The holdouts said they decided to play it safe and obey Shelby’s ruling despite reservations and questions about their legal liability. Utah law makes it a misdemeanor for county clerks to sanction a same-sex marriage.San Juan County Clerk Norman Johnson said “what finalized it for me” was Gov. Gary Herbert’s order to state agencies to comply with Shelby’s decision and change procedures for the delivery of state services. To that end, the Utah Department of Workforce Services is recognizing gay couples for food-stamp and welfare benefits.
CHICAGO — New drugs are making a dent against some hard-to-treat cancers, but some results raise fresh questions about whether the benefit is worth the cost.For the first time in a decade, an experimental drug has extended the lives of patients with advanced lung cancer who relapsed after standard chemotherapy. But the drug used in the study gave patients just six extra weeks of life on average, and costs $6,000 per infusion as currently sold to treat a different form of cancer.Eli Lilly and Co.’s drug, Cryamza, was discussed Saturday at a cancer conference in Chicago, where other studies showed:o The drug Imbruvica, sold by Pharmacyclics Inc. and Janssen Biotech, substantially improved survival and could set a new standard of care for relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL, the most common leukemia in adults. Doctors say the pill more precisely targets cancer and is a good option for older people who can’t tolerate standard chemotherapy infusions.o Two experimental pills from AstraZeneca PLC worked much better than one alone against ovarian cancer that resisted or came back after standard chemo. The drugs significantly prolonged the time women lived without their disease worsening.LUNG CANCERCyramza is sold now to treat stomach cancer and fights the formation of blood vessels that feed tumors. French researchers led a study with 1,253 patients who relapsed after initial treatment of advanced lung cancer, a more common disease.
