Chelsea manager Lampard tells Abraham: Don’t relaxby Paul Vegas22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea manager Frank Lampard has challenged Tammy Abraham to continue scoring goals.The 22-year-old netted in his first Champions League goal in Wednesday’s win over Lille, his eighth in ten appearances this season.Abraham is currently keeping Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud on the bench, and Lampard wants to see him continue.”Tammy’s performance was more of the same of what we are seeing,” Lampard said in his post-match press conference.”He’s hungry for goals, physical, gives everything for the team, has quality with the ball at his feet and, while there’s improvement to be had, he’s showing that.”It’s competitive, the minute Tammy’s levels drop then we will look to [Olivier] Giroud or [Michy] Batshuayi to see if they are pushing him and if they can come in and make a difference.”But at this moment in time, Tammy is doing really well.

ANN ARBOR, MI – OCTOBER 10: Michigan Wolverines head football coach Jim Harbaugh watches the action during the second quarter of the game against the Northwestern Wildcats on October 10, 2015 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Wolverines defeated the Wildcats 38-0. (Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)Former Notre Dame quarterback and current Fox analyst Brady Quinn made an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show yesterday, talking the NFL and college football. There was a lot of discussion regarding nutrition and the physical statures of NFL quarterbacks.More interestingly though, Patrick asked Quinn about Jim Harbaugh’s satellite camp strategy and how he felt about it. During his answer, Quinn referenced Nick Saban’s quote about it being a gray area and that he expected them to become regulated. Patrick then followed up with a juicy query: would Quinn rather play for Nick Saban or Jim Harbaugh?“I don’t know, it’s tough,” Quinn said. “I mean, Nick Saban has the championships so I think you’d probably have to go in that direction at least at this point, but I think you’d have much more fun with Jim Harbaugh. Looking at it, maybe I’d change my mind because Harbaugh has more of the NFL pedigree, at least from when he was there and the success he had. And he was a former quarterback with a lot of success as well, so maybe he’d be able to see more eye-to-eye with you as a player.“So as much as it pains me to say because I really wouldn’t want to play for either, I’m a Notre Dame guy, but I’d have to maybe say Harbaugh in this case.”We guess you can score one more small victory for Harbaugh in the ongoing “battle” between he and Saban. You can watch the full video of Quinn’s interview with Patrick below. [ Saturday Tradition ]

AUSTIN, TX – SEPTEMBER 02: Head coach Tom Herman of the Texas Longhorns sings The Eyes of Texas following a loss to the Maryland Terrapins at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on September 2, 2017 in Austin, Texas. (Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images)Last weekend wasn’t a great one for Texas football. Riding a six-game winning streak, the Longhorns came out flat at Oklahoma State.Texas was in a 17-point hole, and wound up clawing back, but ultimately fell by three on the road.The game made headlines for what happened after the final whistle; Texas coach Tom Herman had to be held back after a shouting match with OSU’s Mike Gundy.The loss probably eliminated Texas football from College Football Playoff dreams, but FS1’s Joel Klatt had some positive takeaways from the game.Texas is now 6-2, but the team remains tied for the lead in the Big 12. To Klatt, that is serious progress.He appeared on 96.7 FM The Ticket in Dallas on Wednesday to talk ‘Horns football with Bob Sturm and Dan McDowell. From 247Sports:“I thought they played a really poor game on the road, against a quality opponent — a decent opponent, and they still only lost by three,” Klatt said. “You don’t take any moral victories, but Texas is really good and they’re still right in the thick of things.”[…]“No one thought this was a playoff team going into the year,” Klatt said. “So the fact that they’re probably not in that discussion right now shouldn’t cause anybody to gnash their teeth and wring their hands out if you will.”Texas was in the Top 10 heading into the week. After the team’s second loss, it is at No. 17 in the College Football Playoff rankings.Most realistic Longhorns fans would have probably signed for that progress at the beginning of the season, especially with a win over Oklahoma in the mix.[247Sports]

The Hawkeyes do have a new-look helmet for the occasion.Saturday’s game at Kinnick Stadium is this year’s Military Appreciation Game for Iowa football.For the event, the Hawkeyes will be wearing a helmet honoring perhaps the most famous Hawkeye to serve in the armed forces: Nile Kinnick, the stadium’s namesake.This morning, Iowa football showed off the new helmet design honoring Nile Kinnick.From Hawkeye football on Twitter:We will salute all Veterans and pay a special tribute to the memory of Nile Kinnick with this helmet for our Military Appreciation Game this Saturday | #Hawkeyes https://t.co/Ga1YS87qlj pic.twitter.com/OwtE48u57r— Hawkeye Football (@HawkeyeFootball) November 7, 2018Iowa described the various elements of the helmet on the program website:When the Hawkeyes (6-3 overall, 3-3 Big Ten) host Northwestern (5-4, 5-1) on Nov. 10, the black Iowa helmets will be decorated with three prominent stickers. On the right side will be a Tigerhawk in red, white, and blue, resembling the flag of the United States of America. Above the Tigerhawk, near the gold stripe down the middle of the helmet, will be a gold America Needs Farmers (ANF) sticker.The Tigerhawk logo is in recognition of men and women in all branches of the military around the world, who are serving, or have served, their country.The biggest change from year’s past will be on the left side of the helmet where every Hawkeye player will wear a gold numeral 24 in honor of Nile Kinnick. Winner of the 1939 Heisman Trophy, Kinnick, was born 100 years ago (1918 in Adel, Iowa) and died 75 years ago (1943 in the Gulf of Paria off the coast of Venezuela). His jersey No. 24 is one of two retired numbers for the football program; Iowa Stadium was renamed Kinnick Stadium in 1972.The Hawkeyes and Wildcats are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET, with the game being broadcast on FOX. The game could have significant Big Ten West implications.[Iowa Sports]

Barcelona likely to make renewed bid for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine GriezmannBarcelona, according to reports in the Spanish media, are willing to again pursue the signing of Antoine Griezmann from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.advertisement Next Reuters BarcelonaMay 14, 2019UPDATED: May 14, 2019 16:15 IST Antoine Griezmann has been at Antoine Madrid since 2014 but has grown frustrated in recent years (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSBarcelona are planning to sign Antoine GriezmannGriezmann has a release clause of 120 million eurosGriezmann has grown frustrated after many trophyless campaignsBarcelona are set to make another attempt to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid after last year’s long saga led to the France international rejecting the Catalan club, according to multiple reports in the Spanish media on Tuesday.Griezmann famously turned down an offer to join Barcelona last season, detailing his internal struggles about whether to make the move in a landmark documentary called The Decision, which was produced by a company owned by Barca’s Gerard Pique.He later signed a new contract with Atletico until 2023 which initially raised his release clause to 200 million euros but numerous reports say that figure will drop to 120 million on July 1.Catalan newspaper Sport said on their front cover that Barca have set their sights on Griezmann again and plan to fund paying his release clause of 120 million euros ($134.9 million) by selling Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, who cost them a club record 165 million.Spanish newspaper Marca said that Atletico’s squad believe Griezmann’s departure is ‘feasible’ while radio station Cadena Ser said the Frenchman is looking to leave the Madrid outfit after ending the campaign trophyless.The Griezmann saga caused great embarrassment to Barca but after the humiliating 4-0 defeat to Liverpool which sent them out of the Champions League, the club are planning to shake up their ageing squad ahead of next season.Griezmann has been Atletico’s talismanic figure since joining from Real Sociedad in 2014, but the club’s finances have been stretched by his ever-rising salary, which Marca say exceeds 20 million euros per year after tax.advertisementAtletico have already agreed to sell France defender Lucas Hernandez to Bayern Munich for 80 million euros, while long-serving captain Diego Godin has announced he is leaving the club at the end of the season.Also Read | Daniele De Rossi to leave AS Roma after 18 yearsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

You’ve still got to perform, as an Australian cricketer: Langer urges struggling batsmen to step upSteve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne have scored bulk of the runs for the Australian team, thus minimising the impact of failures of other specialist batsmen during Ashes 2019.advertisement Next Reuters LondonSeptember 10, 2019UPDATED: September 10, 2019 15:46 IST David Warner has just managed to score with an average of 9.87 in Ashes. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAustralia coach Justin Langer has urged the struggling batsmen in his team to step up and deliverAustralia took an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-test series following their 185-run win in the fourth TestAustralia coach Justin Langer called for patience with the young batters in the side.Australia coach Justin Langer has urged the struggling batsmen in his team to step up and deliver when the final Ashes test against England starts at The Oval on Thursday.Australia took an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-test series following their 185-run win in the fourth Test at Old Trafford and now have the chance to wrap up their first series win in England since 2001, when Steve Waugh’s men won 4-1.The performances of Steve Smith, with an astronomical average of 134.2, and Marnus Labuschagne, combined with a strong showing from the bowlers, have minimised the impact of failures from the other specialist batsmen during the series.Travis Head, Matthew Wade, Usman Khawaja, Marcus Harris, Cameron Bancroft and David Warner have all been posted missing, with experienced opening batsman Warner the worst of the lot with an average of 9.87.While safe in the knowledge that England cannot win the Ashes, Langer said Australia would not be easing off in the fifth Test.”You’ve still got to perform, as an Australian Test cricketer,” he told reporters.”Whether or not winning the Ashes will make a difference, time will tell, but you’ve still got to perform whether you are young or a veteran.”With 671 runs from three Tests, Smith has carried the Australian batting on his shoulders with some support from Labuschagne, who has an average of 58.2 in the series.Langer called for patience with the young batters in the side.”He (Smith) has done a lot for Australian cricket for the last few years actually, and so has Dave Warner,” Langer said.advertisement”But we’ve also got to remember, Travis Head is new to test cricket, Marnus (Labuschagne) is new to test cricket, Marcus Harris is new to test cricket, Cameron Bancroft is new to test cricket.”You can’t just give them that experience, they’ve got to earn that and we’re very thankful to have Steve batting. We’re lucky to have him but test cricket takes time. We’ve got to respect that, it takes a lot of time.”While his batsmen have been misfiring, Langer has no such problems with his fast bowling unit.Pat Cummins has played all four Tests and is the pick of the fast bowlers with 24 wickets while Josh Hazlewood has taken 18 from three.The touring side have James Pattinson and Peter Siddle with two Tests each under their belt in the series, and the uncapped Michael Neser is also an option.”We’ve James Pattinson literally jumping out of his skin to play the next test,” Langer said. “Peter Siddle, in those first two Tests, was probably the standout bowler, a great professional and a ripping person to have in the team.”It’ll be fascinating to see how they (Cummins and Hazlewood) pull up … whatever happens we’re lucky to have a couple of other guys who are raring to go if we need them.”Also Read | You can’t buy class: Steve Smith slammed after trolling Jack LeachAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Save Your Eyes from the Scourge of the Screens with the Best Blue-Light-Blocking Glasses for Men Editors’ Recommendations The Best CBD Oil and Skincare Creams for Managing Pain Why Every Man Should Care About Slow Fashion How to Transition Your Wardrobe to Fall The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Today we speak to the interior designer and architect, Reinaldo Leandro.I was born in Caracas, Venezuela where I studied architecture.I have an interior design and architecture practice in Manhattan New York where I live and have been living for the past thirteen years.I moved to New York to pursue a Masters in Advanced Architectural Design at Columbia University. I then met my business partner right out of grad school; we have similar styles and hit it off. I worked at SOM for four years, it was like a second masters, and towards the end of my years there I was exhausted with corporate life and architecture and started doing projects on the side with my partner. We both agreed, why not, maybe we can do this and make a living out of it.We mostly do residential projects and gallery spaces. Last year we completed a house in London and did our first house from the ground up in Martha’s Vineyard. It was an amazing experience and we can’t wait for the project to be out there. This year we are doing a big office space in San Francisco, a house in Brooklyn and a townhouse in Tribeca, so we are really excited for what this year will bring. We would love to do a bar, restaurant or store. Commercial would be fun too.Design wise my style is modern- contemporary but also influenced by my upbringing in Caracas, which has incredible 50s and 60s tropical architecture. I draw a lot from travel and art as a big inspiration. I don’t know much about fashion, black jeans and a comfortable tee works for me. AlwaysBelow Mr. Leandro tells us about his personal style.Jeans: black Rag and Bone jeans.Shirts: J.Crew and Gap actually have really soft tee’s, once you wash them a couple of times. Gap or Polo blue or white oxford shirts are great too.Pants: I only have two pairs. Black slacks from Saturdays and navy blue Balenciaga pants that a rarely use.Suits: Prada.Shoes: Dr. Martens black on black boots (last detail is important. No yellow stitching anywhere) White Nike high-tops.Accessories: watches. Patek Phillpe and Rolex, both from the 50s passed from one of my grandfathers. Short and slim gold chain with two small gold crosses which I purchased in Greece. I only wear that in the summer and it makes me feel like a tennis player (which I like).Outerwear: I over use a bomber jacket from Club Monaco that is not mine. A navy parka from Barbour that my dad insisted I buy (I didn’t so he got it for me). A vintage camel Margiela winter coat which I got in London. It’s too big on me but it’s cool. Finally, a Margiela long grey coat that I only wear to dress things up.Favorite Cologne: I don’t wear cologne.Your favorite App: Strava. I run. A lot.Favorite piece of technology: IPhone. I guess.Next tech purchase: a new laptop? a good 11×17 printer? I need both but I am really overwhelmed when buying tech stuff.Photo courtesy of Celeste Sloman
How to Make Loco Moco, a Hawaiian Staple Dish Editors’ Recommendations Feasting is our column dedicated to cooking, grilling, eating and discovering what’s on the menu across America and the world.One of the best parts about living in America is how diverse it is – the people, the landscape and all of the different cultures coming together in this melting pot we call home. Just as the country itself differs in these ways, one of our proudest traditions varies from state to state, city to city and even block to block. No matter where you are in the country, chances are there’s a BBQ joint nearby that you love.Author Will Budiaman set out across America to discover all the different BBQ styles, and lucky for us, he organized his findings into a book we can’t wait to crack next time we fire up the grill. Be the BBQ Pitmaster is a regional smoker cookbook celebrating America’s best ‘cue. It’s full of insider secrets and 125 recipes from award-winning pitmasters, regional BBQ style overviews and must-have basics to teach you the ropes or help you brush up on your meaty knowledge. To get an insider’s take on the book, we caught up with Will himself to learn about his inspiration and snag a recipe for you to try at home,What first got you into BBQ? Are you from a place where it’s very prominent in the culinary scene?My first taste of barbecue was during one of the yearly trips my family took during the summer back to their native Indonesia. Babi guling is a traditional Balinese way of cooking a whole pig slowly over a spit; in fact, the word guling refers to the act of rotating the pig. That crisp, crackling skin combined with the succulent meat underneath got me hooked onto barbecue from very early on.In terms of geography, you couldn’t get much further from the heart of traditional Southern barbecue. In terms of technique, though, if you were to pick someone in North Carolina up out of their backyard and drop them onto that beach halfway around the world, I’d think he or she’d see a pretty familiar sight. And so while there are certain things that define American barbecue as a cuisine, I think it’s important to recognize barbecue as a technique you can find around the world. Anytime you have meat cooking low and slow with smoke, you have barbecue.From the looks of it, writing this book took you to all types of amazing places across the United States. Can you tell us about one of your favorite experiences while researching?I will never forget the time I walked into Beef Palace, a butcher shop in Huntington Beach, CA. I was looking for a whole packer brisket to test with, something that can be hard to find at a supermarket. The first thing anyone notices is the décor. I wouldn’t call it retro — more like frozen in time. Memorabilia and lots of cow heads adorn the wood-paneled walls. The second thing you notice is the wraparound display case of meat. They don’t call it Beef Palace for nothing. And most importantly, the staff: big, burly guys all dressed in red who are quick with a smile and happy to help. They know what they’re talking about and will get you exactly what you need. On your way out, they let you take as many spuds as you like on the house.

The $69 million project entails the construction of a two-storey building at the Hague Showground Story Highlights The Ministry needs to attract more qualified officers in technical areas Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke, on Thursday, July 18, signed a contract and broke ground for the construction of a new parish office for the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) in Hague, Trelawny.The $69 million project entails the construction of a two-storey reinforced concrete building at the Hague Showground, which will house some 22 RADA staff and other government agencies. The contract period is nine months.Addressing a ceremony held at the construction site, Minister Clarke stated that over 10,000 farmers in the region will benefit from the facility. “This will have a significant impact on the region and is part of our Ministry’s plans to improve customer service at RADA,” he stated.He noted that the project is in keeping with the commitment of his Ministry and RADA, to advance the development of a modern and efficient agricultural sector.“We recognise that a modern agricultural sector speaks not just to the provision of new agricultural facilities, but also to the application of new and appropriate technologies, strategies, and knowhow, which must be suitably translated into everyday farming and management practices,” he stated.Minister Clarke said that with the agricultural sector now poised for growth, the Ministry needs to attract more qualified officers in technical areas, and there is the need to provide the kind of working environment that will enable such personnel to perform optimally.He commended the RADA officers for their contribution to the farming sector over the years.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of RADA, Lenworth Fulton, in bringing greetings at the ceremony, said he was elated at the implementation of the project.He said the new facility will not only serve the farmers of Trelawny but others across the country.Also present at the signing and ground breaking were Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Donavan Stanberry; National Board Chairman of RADA, Dr. Denzil Williams; Custos of Trelawny, Hon.

Minister of Education, Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, has called for caution in the ranking of schools, especially when the institutions are assessed solely on their performance in traditional subject areas.The Minister, who was delivering the keynote address at the Alpart Community Council Back to School ceremony on August 15, in Nain, St. Elizabeth, noted that many students have been doing well in technical and vocational training and the schools that they attend must receive ranking in any thorough system of grading.Rev. Thwaites said that while he would not question the sincerity of the persons behind the recent ranking of schools, the activity must not be used to create confusion. “We must not use ranking in order to prejudice; and putting some schools at the bottom of the pile doesn’t help them to lift up,” the Minister said.He said educators should also see success when they “help the weakest” in the system.“Your success is not getting the brightest ones and making them gwaan through, that is not success. The success in education and in all Jamaica and the success I believe that your Community Council stands for is to take the weakest, those in need and bring them to something higher. This is the way that we have to organise all public policy. This is the way we have to organise the philosophy of our nation,” he said.The Minister pointed out that there is nothing wrong in recognising and celebrating success but “the main burden of our expenditure, the main effort of our minds and hearts must be towards those who need to come up to that level, or to the highest level that they can achieve.”Rev. Thwaites called on parents to play their part in ensuring that children focus on what is being taught in school. He also added that the teachers cannot only give special attention to the brightest in their class as the education budget is made available for equity and quality for all.

Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says countries can no longer ignore the imminent threat of pandemics, as world tourism could face a myriad of global challenges in the event of such occurrences. Story Highlights The Minister pointed out that experts have also warned that the world is nowhere near safe from the next pandemic, noting that the number of new diseases per decade has increased nearly fourfold over the past 60 years. Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says countries can no longer ignore the imminent threat of pandemics, as world tourism could face a myriad of global challenges in the event of such occurrences.Addressing an International Monetary Fund (IMF)/World Bank forum on the ‘Tourism Industry and Pandemics’, at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, D.C., on October 13, Mr. Bartlett said among the threats are the possibility of location quarantines; fear to use airports and other centres of mass gatherings; fear of not knowing what to do in case of illness in a foreign land; the need for speedy diagnosis; and cross-border medical insurance.The Minister pointed out that experts have also warned that the world is nowhere near safe from the next pandemic, noting that the number of new diseases per decade has increased nearly fourfold over the past 60 years.He said that since 1980 outbreaks per year have more than tripled, with the 2003 SARs outbreak, which started in Asia, quickly spreading to more than 24 countries in North America, South America, Europe and Asia; and the 2009 H1N1 or Swine Flu outbreak that spread to 120 countries and territories in about eight weeks and was ultimately responsible for over 284,000 deaths.The Minister added that there was the Ebola outbreak in 2014 which accounted for over 11,000 deaths; the HIV/AIDS pandemic which has affected more than 75 million people since its detection in 1981 and has resulted in over 35 million deaths; and more recently there have also been deadly outbreaks caused by migratory insect carriers, such as the Chikungunya and the Zika viruses transmitted by the mosquito.Mr. Bartlett suggested a number of measures to counter the threat of pandemics, including the development of a comprehensive knowledge management and response system; conduct targeted communication; factoring the direct cost of medical care; surveillance and diagnosis; public education; financially sustainable basic research to strengthen preparation, mitigation, response and rebuilding; and a real-time, consistent, reliable and accurate flow of information.The Minister emphasised that there needs to be active networks involving all major tour operators, airports, cruise liners, attraction parks and other service providers, reserve human resources personnel with the skills and training to manage emergency cases, regular simulation exercises that include private and public sector participation, and strong participation of international organizations.Mr. Bartlett urged delegates and members of various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have a vested interest in both human and healthy security, free movement of human beings across borders, a sustainable tourism sector contributing to economic, social and political stability and a healthy ecosystem and a disease-free world, to support the tourism sector’s initiatives to enhance its response capabilities to pandemics. The Minister emphasised that there needs to be active networks involving all major tour operators, airports, cruise liners, attraction parks and other service providers, reserve human resources personnel with the skills and training to manage emergency cases, regular simulation exercises that include private and public sector participation, and strong participation of international organizations.
