Why every coach loves this Arsenal transfer target – Expert Eye reveals all

first_img Arsenal transfer target Pedro 1 Arsenal will apparently strengthen their attack in the summer by moving for Barcelona forward Pedro, offering the Catalans £24m for him.Under Luis Enrique, the 27-year-old’s playing time has been limited and he could finally leave the club he joined as a kid in 2004.Here, we look at what those in the know have to say about him and there is one recurring theme: a hard worker with bundles of energy and a knack for scoring goals.However, is he willing to stop winning trophies – four league titles, two Champions Leagues and two Spanish Cups – and and join the Gunners?Technically, he is a very good footballer. He is tremendously quick, he works hard without the ball, he will press and harass– Graham Hunter, talkSPORT contributor and author of Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the WorldPedro’s secret is that he never gives up. That’s why every coach ends up loving him– Former Barca manager Gerardo MartinoHe’s a dynamic player and has that top speed required in football today– Spain boss Vicente del BosqueHe scores, he runs without the ball, he attacks, he defends, he does it all. He is perhaps the player who has surprised me the most– Brazil poster boy and Barcelona forward NeymarHe is a top player with great individual ability to score goals and open up the opposition– Current Barcelona manager Luis EnriqueIf Pedro was Brazilian he’d be called Pedrinho and we wouldn’t have the money to sign him– Pep Guardiola, his Barcelona manager in 2010Arsenal fans, would you welcome the signing of Pedro, or should you be targeting other areas of the pitch?

Last slaying suspect nabbed

first_imgWHITTIER – The final suspect in the killing of a Pico Rivera grandmother who tried to stop a man from tagging a wall is in custody, homicide detectives said Thursday. Ricardo “Palo” Rolon, 21, of Rowland Heights was found by U.S. marshals at a house in Oakland on Sept. 1, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s Homicide Lt. Larry Lincoln. “We got anonymous information that he was staying in that area,” Lincoln said. He didn’t know how long Rolon had been in Oakland or whom he stayed with. Rolon appeared in Whittier Superior Court on Thursday on a bench warrant, Lincoln said. He is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday, said Deputy District Attorney Mike Enomoto. The three other suspects: Angel “Scrappy” Rojas, 16; Cesar “Criminal” Lopez, 19; and Jennifer “Shorty” Tafolla, 19, are also in custody and will also be arraigned Wednesday at Whittier Court. Prosecutors had earlier charged the four with shooting at an occupied vehicle, conspiracy and street terrorism. They are also accused of committing the Aug. 10 fatal shooting of Maria Hicks, 57, to further a criminal street gang. Deputies said the suspects belong to a small Pico Rivera gang called Brown Authority. Rojas is the alleged shooter and will be tried as an adult, officials said. He was also charged with unlawful firearm activity and the special allegation that he personally and intentionally discharged a firearm. Rolon, who is identified in the criminal complaint and booking records as Richard Rolon, was the only suspect still at large in the case. “We have everybody we think was involved,” Lincoln said. Sheriff’s records show Rolon was booked into a county jail Wednesday. He is being held at the Inmate Reception Center without bail. Hicks was shot after she flashed her car headlights and honked at a man she saw spray painting a wall on San Gabriel River Parkway and Woodford Street, according to witnesses. Prosecutors allege the suspects defaced the wall because they saw a rival gang’s graffiti. The criminal complaint alleges that Rolon directed Lopez to mark the wall. Rojas allegedly stood watch and fired several times at Hicks’ vehicle. A round hit Hicks in the head. She died three days later. Detectives relayed the news of the arrest to Hicks’ brother, Ruben Quintero, 58. He said the family is delighted Rolon has been caught. “Just picking up the pieces has been our primary task,” Quintero said. “The fact he has been arrested makes it important. … I think it was pretty obvious he was quite fearful for himself and was in Oakland.” Quintero said he was reminded of the books “1984” and “A Clockwork Orange.” “They’re both different books but both are pushing the idea of individual courage and independent thinking. As Jonah is swallowed by the whale, you can’t escape the world, reality and the sins of mankind. But you have to stand up,” he said. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Roy Hodgson resigns as England manager after crashing out of Euro 2016

first_imgRoy Hodgson announced his resignation as England manager after crashing out of Euro 2016. The Three Lions were beaten 2-1 by Iceland and the 68-year-old, whose contract was due to run out this summer, confirmed his exit at a press conference with a speech in front of the media, taking no further questions. The announcement came minutes after England’s embarrassing defeat in Nice, where Wayne Rooney gave them the lead inside five minutes from the spot before two goals in 12 first-half minutes gave Lars Lagerback’s side the command. Hodgson ends his four-year tenure in charge of the country, where he oversaw two European Championships and a World Cup.He replaced Fabio Capello before Euro 2012, where England were beaten at the quarter-final stage on penalties. In the 2014 World Cup, with Hodgson in charge for two years by that time, failed to get out of their group after losing to Italy and Uruguay and drawing with Costa Rica.Then the optimism started to build earlier this year when England came from behind to beat world champions Germany and, with a number of exciting prospects, the country started to believe. But they finished second in the group stages and were beaten by minnows Iceland in the round of 16.Ray Lewington and Gary Neville will also be stepping down.The Football Association soon released a statement backing ‘Roy Hodgson’s decision to step down as England manager and will discuss next steps imminently.’Roy Hodgson announcement in full: “I’m extremely disappointed, of course, about tonight’s result and ultimately our exit from the competition.“We haven’t progressed as far as I thought we were capable of, and that’s obviously not acceptable.“I am actually proud of the work that my coaching staff and I have achieved in our time at the helm with England.“The transition from a squad whose average was 30 to now being the youngest in the tournament is both remarkable and exciting for the future of English football.“I would have loved to stay on for another two years, however I am pragmatic and know that we are in the results business.“My contract was always up after the Euros so now is the time for someone else to oversee the progress of this young, hungry and extremely talented group of players.“They’ve been fantastic and they have done everything that has been asked of them.“When I arrived I was told that players didn’t turn up to play for their country or that they pull out at the last minute. But I have not seen any of that.“These players love to play for their country and their commitment has been unquestioned.“Ray and Gary have asked me to speak on their behalf. They arrived with me as part of my coaching team and they’ll leave with me.“I’d like to thank them for their dedicated support and for the major part they’ve played in our team preparation.“Finally I’d like to thank all the support staff, players, the FA and of course the fans.“It’s been a fantastic journey these four years and it’s one I’ll look back on or remember with pride.“Finally I’d like to thank you, the media, for the support that you’ve given me over the four years.“I am sorry it’s had to end this way with another exit from the tournament but these things happen and all I can do is wish everybody all the very best and hope that you will still be able to see an England team in a final of a major tournament fairly soon.“We’ve been unable to deliver. Thank you very much.”last_img read more

Marcus Rashford scores HAT-TRICK on England Under-21s debut – VIDEO

first_img Marcus Rashford: The Manchester United starlet scored on his England Under-21s debut #MUFC’s Marcus Rashford didn’t take too long to score his first goal for England’s U21s today.. pic.twitter.com/bZNZMtW6PH— Sport360° (@Sport360) September 6, 2016 1 Manchester United’s newest academy star Marcus Rashford made a dream start for England’s Under-21s. The 18-year-old striker, who went to the Euros with the senior Three Lions squad, scored THREE times for Gareth Southgate’s men in the UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifier against Norway, as they were 6-1 winners. Rashford has only made one Premier League appearance for the Red Devils this term, with Jose Mourinho opting not to use him from the bench in their opening two fixtures. But in their last outing before the international break, Rashford came on to score an injury-time winner at Hull.Can the strike at the KCOM and his display for the Three Lions’ youth side force him into Jose Mourinho’s reckoning ahead of the Manchester derby?And now the Old Trafford academy product, making his debut for the Under-21s, continued to impress as he scored a hat-trick in front of watching senior boss Sam Allardyce. In the last year, Rashford has now scored on his Europa League debut, Premier League debut, senior England debut and NOW his England Under-21s debut.The first two were typical Rashford, too. A good turn of pace to beat the defender and race towards goal before finishing coolly, before sealing his treble with a penalty.See all three, below…Marcus Rashford – England 1-0 Norwaycenter_img Marcus Rashford – England 4-0 Norwayhttps://twitter.com/BradsBetting/status/773227573253967872Marcus Rashford – England 5-1 Norway Rashford’s third goal #eng pic.twitter.com/j3vGWRXaoR— utdhq (@utdhq) September 6, 2016last_img read more

Firefighters close to stopping blaze

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsCalm winds and higher humidity at the end of the week slowed the spread of flames as crews continued to build containment lines. The fire, ignited by someone burning debris, has blackened 162,547 acres, mainly in the Los Padres and Angeles National forests, making it the fifth biggest fire in California history. At one point, it threatened the Ventura County communities of Ojai, Santa Paula and Fillmore. The fire destroyed one rural Lockwood Valley home and damaged another. It also burned a handful of structures that included barns, sheds, an unoccupied cabin and a camping trailer. Firefighting costs have been estimated at more than $67 million. OJAI – Firefighters were in the final stage Sunday of surrounding one of the biggest blazes in state history, a conflagration that has burned 254 square miles of brush and timber since erupting Labor Day. “There are still six miles of fire lines to build, but this fire is under control,” said Faith Nielson, a U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman. The Day Fire was 87 percent contained, and officials expected to have it fully surrounded by today. Scores of weary firefighters have been leaving the fire front and heading home. More than 3,300 crew members remained overnight, but an additional 1,200 were scheduled to be released Sunday, officials said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fallen firefighter eulogized

first_imgVICTORVILLE – A firefighter killed by the arson-set Esperanza wildfire was remembered for “noble service” Friday at the first of five funerals for members of a U.S. Forest Service engine crew overrun by flames. “Jason McKay gave his life while protecting someone else’s life and property and even though we honor his noble service today, at the same time we mourn his passing,” Jeff Barbour, a pastor at High Desert Church, told McKay’s family, fiancee and firefighter colleagues. McKay, 27, and fellow crew members of San Bernardino National Forest’s Engine 57 were overtaken Oct. 26 as the blaze roared through the San Jacinto Mountains 90 miles east of Los Angeles. McKay, the assistant engine operator, and three others died that day. The fifth crew member died Tuesday. A funeral for engine operator Jess McLean, 27, was to be held later Friday, with others scheduled into next week. A public memorial service for all five was planned for Sunday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’The funerals began a day after murder and arson charges were filed against auto mechanic Raymond Lee Oyler, 36, of Beaumont in connection with the Esperanza and 10 other fires. Oyler pleaded not guilty. The fires were among an unusually high number of arson blazes in the region this year. Authorities focused on Oyler in the earlier fires because of images recorded by cameras investigators secretly placed atop utility poles in remote areas, said an official involved in the investigation who requested anonymity because the case was continuing. The cameras recorded license plates and makes of all cars in the areas around the time each fire started, and investigators noticed one car was in the vicinity of at least 10 fires, the person said. The car was registered to a man who said he sold it to Oyler some months ago, the source said. There were no cameras where the Esperanza fire started, but once detectives started looking at Oyler for the other fires, they discovered evidence linking him to it, the source said. Details of the evidence were withheld. At McKay’s funeral, the fallen firefighters were symbolized by five American flags standing on the High Desert Church stage. “Nine days ago, one of the worst tragedies in the 100-year history of the Forest Service took the lives of five heroes as they stood on the line, faced down the flames, and protected and served,” Forest Service Chaplain Steve Seltzner said. “It has shaken this agency and the men and women of the San Bernardino National Forest to its very core and shocked the entire world,” he said. Mourners were shown a video montage of McKay and his fiancee, Staci Burger, looking radiant while camping and rafting, and a picture of a smiling McKay covered in soot after fighting a fire. Accompanying music included Alan Jackson’s “Like Red on a Rose.” McKay’s sisters Brenda Zimmerman and Crystal McKay read poems, including one written by the parents of a baby that McKay and other members of Engine 57 helped deliver several months ago. “He was my strength and I couldn’t be more proud of him,” Zimmerman said. Dave Burkart, a chaplain with the San Bernardino County Fire Department-California Department of Forestry, recalled that a few firefighters coming off shifts at the fire last Sunday asked him to hold a memorial service. The few turned into dozens. “They kept coming, so much so that we decided to move the service into the tent so we could use the PA system.” The tent was soon filled to capacity and (they) kept coming,” Burkart said. The service ended with a presentation of a folded American flag to McKay’s family by a Forest Service honor guard as bagpipes played “Amazing Grace.” The family was then escorted out between rows of firefighters standing at attention.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arsenal’s unbeaten run comes to end with defeat at Southampton

first_img gameday cracker deals no dice REVEALED Arsenal, whose 22-game unbeaten run came to an end on the south coast, twice equalised through Henrik Mkhitaryan following a pair of headers from Danny Ings.The victory was Southampton’s first in the Premier League on home soil since late April and prompted scenes of jubilation in the stands followed by a lap of honour on the pitch.Hasenhuttl sent free beer vouchers to Saints’ success-starved season ticket holders during the week in an attempt to have “everyone in our boat to row with us”.His gesture, combined with an energetic, hard-working display seemed to do the trick. Hasenhuttl could barely contain his excitement at the final whistle Latest Premier League News Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Mkhitaryan scored both of Arsenal’s goals huge blow Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Matt Targett swung in a superb left-wing cross and Ings – back from a hamstring problem – nodded powerfully past Germany international Leno.The opening goal prompted a passionate celebration from Hasenhuttl, although he quickly cut it short after realising he had encroached into Emery’s technical area.His joy was short-lived though as Mkhitaryan headed Nacho Monreal’s cross into the bottom right corner eight minutes later at the end of a well-worked moved involving Alex Iwobi.Jan Bednarek then produced a last-ditch interception to deny Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a tap-in. Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City 6 Southampton’s enthusiastic, pressing style was warmly received by their fans and they edged back ahead a minute before the break.This time it was all about Ings as he directed a superb looping header into the right side of Leno’s goal after Yan Valery lifted the ball into the area.Emery reacted to the setback by introducing Lacazette in place of the injured Hector Bellerin at half-time and switching to a back four.The changes had an immediate impact. Lacazette caught Oriol Romeu dawdling in possession just outside the Soutampton box, allowing Mkhitaryan to fire home from the edge of the box via a heavy deflection off Jannik Vestergaard which deceived Alex McCarthy. 6 6 Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT REVEALED Getty Arsenal had not lost since August 18 but, after surviving a scare when Shane Long had a goal disallowed with 15 minutes remaining, their defence was once again breached.Long burst away down the right-hand side and, after Leno came for his cross and failed to collect, Austin had the simple task of heading into the unguarded net to spark joyous scenes and move the club out of the relegation zone. Ings scored two goals on his return from injury The 51-year-old, who replaced the sacked Mark Hughes on December 5, was greeted by a standing ovation ahead of kick-off.And the noise levels increased significantly as Ings twice nodded in during an entertaining first half.Armenia international Mkhitaryan gave the hosts a couple of reality checks with a brace of his own, but it was to be Saints’ day after Austin pounced.Arsenal manager Unai Emery was suffering a defensive headache so handed captain Laurent Koscielny his first league start since he suffered an Achilles problem in early May. Ralph Hasenhuttl won his first home game in charge of Southampton thanks to Charlie Austin’s 85th-minute header earning them a 3-2 win over an in-form Arsenal at St Mary’s.Substitute Austin took advantage of a mistake from Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno to also put an end to Arsenal’s 22-game unbeaten run. It was not Aubameyang’s day in front of goal 6 tense With Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi banned, Emery also opted to deploy midfielder Granit Xhaka as a makeshift central defender on the left of a back three.Playmaker Mesut Ozil, meanwhile, was left out of the Gunners’ starting line-up for the fifth successive top-flight game, with Alexandre Lacazette joining him on the bench.Southampton had won only one of 19 home league games dating back to November 2017, scoring just 16 times during that spell.Hasenhuttl has insisted clean sheets are his initial priority, but his team were rewarded for their bright start and attacking intent with 20 minutes played.

71-Year-Old Floyds Knobs Man Killed in Motorcycle Accident

first_imgA husband is dead and his wife is in the hospital with life threatening injuries aftern an accident this afternoon on US 150.This afternoon at approximately 2:30 pm, a 71-year-old Floyds Knobs man was killed in a motorcycle accident on US 150.Dickey E. Coffee, of Floyds Knobs was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife, Vonda, 71, was a passenger on the same motorcycle and was transported by ambulance to University of Louisville hospital with life threatening injuries. Officers from the Indiana State Police and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department responded to the report of a Personal Injury crash involving two motorcycles and a car on U.S. 150 just west of Cross Road in southern Washington County. A preliminary investigation reveals that a red, 2013 Victory motorcycle, driven by Coffey, was traveling westbound on U.S. 150 near Cross Road. Dickey Coffey’s son, Kimmy E. Coffey, 51, of Lanesville, IN, was also westbound on his 1983 Honda motorcycle and was travelling westbound along with his father.  Both motorcycles attempted to pass a slow moving pickup truck with trailer which was also travelling westbound. As the motorcycles began to pass, a gold 2003 Toyota Camry, driven by Whitney Gaines, 25, of Fredericksburg, IN, approached eastbound.   During the pass, it appears that the red 2013 Victory Motorcycle struck the rear of the 1983 Honda motorcycle causing it to veer into the eastbound lane, striking the Toyota Camry. Both Mr. and Mrs. Coffey were thrown from the motorcycle. Dickey E. Coffey was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash by the Washington County Coroner. Vonda Coffee was transported by Washington County EMS to the University of Louisville Hospital with life threatening injuries. Whitney Gaines was transported to the University of Louisville with non-life threatening injuries.  Kimmy Coffee was not injured.   The crash remains under investigation.  U.S.150 was closed for approximately three hours.  The Indiana State Police were assisted by units from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, the Posey Township Fire Department, Washington County EMS, and the Washington County Coroner’s Office.last_img read more

Top 8 Web 2.0 Security Threats

Designed to serve as a guideline for assessing the risk involved with using Web 2.0 tools in the workplace, the document is intended to read by anyone considering the introduction of Web 2.0 technology into their workplace. The document doesn’t name technologies or companies that in and of themselves are risky, but rather looks at the types of vulnerabilities that Web 2.0 can bring to a business environment. The Secure Enterprise 2.0 Forum is a group of organizations and individuals composed of executives at Fortune 500 companies who have embraced the trend of Web 2.0 tools and services in enterprise. Instead of fearing the seismic shift that’s underway, they embrace it. Still, they know that improper use of the new technologies could lead to nightmares down the road which is why they work to address the security challenges posed by the Web 2.0 technologies. The Forum promotes awareness, industry standards, best practices, and interoperability issues related to the use of the new tools in the workplace. Top Web 2.0 Security VulnerabilitiesIn the latest report, the Forum has identified the top Web 2.0 security vulnerabilities as follows:1. Insufficient Authentication Controls In many Web 2.0 applications, content is trusted in the hands of many users, not just a select number of authorized personnel. That means there’s a greater chance that a less-experienced user will make a change that will negatively affect the overall system. This change in a system’s design can also be exploited by hackers who now have access to a greater number of “administrative” accounts whose passwords can often be easily cracked if the correct security controls are not in place. The systems also may have insufficient brute-force controls, permit clear text passwords, or have been tied together in a single-sign-on environment, making an attack that much riskier.2. Cross Site Scripting (XSS)In a stored cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability, malicious input sent by an attacker is stored in the system then displayed to other users. Systems that allow users to input formatted content – like HTML for example – are especially susceptible to this attack. At risk are blogs, social networks, and wikis. An example of this attack from last year was the Yahoo HotJobs XSS vulnerability exploit, where hackers obfuscated JavaScript to steal session cookies of victims. Last year and in previous years, XSS worms were also to blame for attacks on Orkut, MySpace, Justin.tv. 3. Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)In CSRFs, victim visit what appear to be innocent-looking web sites, but which contain malicious code which generates requests to a different site instead. Due to heavy use of AJAX, Web 2.0 applications are potentially more vulnerable to this type of attack. In legacy apps, most user-generated requests produced a visual effect on the screen, making CSRF easier to spot. Web 2.0 systems’ lack of visual feedback make this attack less apparent. A recent example of a CSRF involved a vulnerability in Twitter in which site owners could get the Twitter profiles of their visitors. 4. PhishingAlthough phishing isn’t just a risk associated with Web 2.0 technologies by any means, the multitude of dissimilar client software in use makes it harder for consumers to distinguish between the genuine and the fake web sites. That enables more effective phishing attacks.  5. Information LeakageWeb 2.0 combined with our “work-from-anywhere” lifestyle has begun to blur the lines between work and private life. Because of this psychological shift, people may inadvertently share information their employer would have considered sensitive. Even if individuals aren’t sharing the equivalent of trade secrets, the accumulation of the small “non-sensitive” items they share can allow a business’s competitors to gain intelligence about what’s going on and being worked on at that company. 6. Injection FlawsWeb 2.0 technologies tend to be vulnerable to new types of injection attacks including XML injection, XPath injection, JavaScript injection, and JSON injection for no other reason beyond the fact that the Web 2.0 applications tend to use and rely on those technologies. With increased use, comes increased risk. In addition, because Web 2.0 apps often rely on client side code, they more often perform some client-side input validation which an attacker can bypass. 7. Information IntegrityData integrity is one of the key elements of data security. Although a hack could lead to loss of integrity, so can unintentional misinformation. A great example of this in the public arena is a mistaken edit on Wikipedia which is then accepted as fact by many of the site’s visitors. In a business environment, having systems open to many users allows a malicious or mistaken user or users to post and publish inaccurate information which destroys the integrity of the data. 8. Insufficient Anti-automationProgrammatic interfaces of Web 2.0 applications let hackers automate attacks easier. In addition to brute force and CSRF attacks, other examples include the automated retrieval of a large amount of information and the automated opening of accounts. Anti-automation mechanisms like Captchas can help slow down or thwart these types of attacks.When introducing Web 2.0 into the workplace, it’s important to have a good understanding of the types of risks involved. However, that said, while Web 2.0 may present different types of challenges, those are not necessarily any worse than the risks involved with legacy applications – they’re just different. And the opportunities that Web 2.0 technology can provide a business make overcoming these potential threats worth the effort. IT + Project Management: A Love Affairlast_img read more
