Gattuso wants winning attitude to continue

0 Comment

first_imgGennaro Gattuso is impressed with AC Milan’s new winning mentality and wants them to continue in that run as they gear up to face Chievo Verona.Gattuso’s men have overcome their poor start to return to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Sassuolo then came from behind to defeat Olympiacos in the Europa League.“Every game has a different story,” said Gattuso in his Press conference. “We had started well against Olympiacos, and that goal knocked the wind out of our sails, but we did well to react.“This type of attitude is what I want to see, as over the last two months we’ve been missing that. We focused on passing but were missing something.“The last two games have broken the ice psychologically. We’ve shown this season that we have some defects and are working to correct them, but it’ll take time. We’re not far off the top teams and must continue believing in our work.”Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Cutrone has earned a senior Italy call-up for games against Ukraine and Poland, but Gattuso doesn’t suggest more playing time is in the works.“I don’t enjoy putting Cutrone on the bench, and I was distraught when he was injured. He is someone who changes games with his enthusiasm and dynamism.“Patrick can change a match when he comes off the bench. He has also done well when starting, but always makes an impact as a substitute.“Cutrone should be proud of the call-up, as it must give him incredible joy. We’ll see if he actually goes because his ankle still hurts, but I’m proud he got the nod.”last_img read more

first_imgBarcelona could be expelled from the Copa del Rey after allegedly choosing to play an ineligible player in Juan Brandariz “Chumi”19-year-old Chumi was named as a starter in Barcelona’s first leg against Levante last week in the Copa del Rey, which they surprisingly lost 2-1.But El Mundo broke the story that the young defender had in fact been suspended by the Spanish FA (RFEF) for receiving a fifth booking in a second division game against Castellón on Sunday for the B team.Now Barcelona could be kicked out of the Copa del Rey as a result of playing Chumi at Levante.“To the club that sets an ineligible line-up with a footballer who does not comply with the regulations to be able to participate in a game, this will be given as a defeat, declaring the opponent the winner by a score of three goals to zero, unless the winning margin was greater,” reads Article 76 of the RFEF’s disciplinary code.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“In the case of a knockout tie, it will be resolved in favour of the opponent.”Barcelona won the second leg of their last-16 tie against Levante 3-0 to book their place in the quarter-finals, which could turn out to have been a pointless effort.Real Madrid had in fact been eliminated from the competition themselves for similar circumstances after playing the suspended Denis Cheryshev in 2015.Barcelona have defended their actions on the matter based on a memo entitled circular 28, which states that the suspension was not relevant.last_img read more

first_img 49 Photos Share your voice The official causes of the crashes, which appear to be similar, are still under study. Investigation teams in Indonesia and Ethiopia are focusing on faulty sensors and a flight control system designed to push the nose down in the air. Boeing says it has completed the necessary update for review by the FAA. But as of now, the agency has not said when that will happen.”We at Boeing are sorry for the tragic loss of lives in both of these accidents and these lives lost will continue to weigh heavily on our hearts and on our minds for years to come,” said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing CEO, in a statement. “The families and loved ones of those on board have our deepest sympathies, and we hope this initial outreach can help bring them comfort.” Boeing Tour a B-17 and other aircraft at the Palm Springs Air Museum Boeing’s 737 Max 8 is grounded after two crashes that killed 346 people. Boeing Boeing will spend $100 million in the coming years to aid the families affected by two 737 Max 8 plane crashes. The planes have been grounded since March following the crashes, which left 346 people dead. The company said the funds will address “family and community needs” and support “education, hardship and living expenses for impacted families, community programs and economic development in impacted communities.” Boeing will work with local governments and non-profit organizations to carry out the aid. The first 737 Max 8 crash occured Oct. 29, when Lion Air flight 610 crashed in the Java Sea 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing 189 people. Then, on March 10, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 departed Addis Ababa Bole International Airport bound for Nairobi, Kenya. Just after takeoff, the pilot radioed a distress call and was given immediate clearance to return and land.

UN vows sanctions over N Korea missile test

0 Comment

first_imgPeople gather at a street-side newsstand showing a copy of the Rodong Sinmun newspaper featuring coverage of a May 14 North Korean rocket test, in Pyongyang. Photo: AFPThe UN Security Council has strongly condemned North Korea’s latest ballistic missile test and vowed strong measures, including sanctions, to derail Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.North Korea’s long-term bid to develop a credible nuclear attack threat to the US mainland saw it launch Sunday what appeared to be its longest-range missile yet.Pyongyang said the new weapon—called the Hwasong-12 — was capable of carrying a “heavy nuclear warhead”.In a unanimous statement backed by the North’s main ally China, the council on Monday vowed to punish Pyongyang’s “highly destabilizing behavior” and demanded a halt to any further nuclear or missile tests.Pyongyang carried out two atomic tests last year, and has accelerated its missile launch programme, despite tough UN sanctions aimed at denying leader Kim Jong-Un the hard currency needed to fund his weapons ambitions.“There’s a lot of sanctions left that we can start to do, whether it’s with oil, whether it’s with energy, whether it’s with their maritime ships, exports,” US Ambassador Nikki Haley told ABC television’s “This Week”.“We can do a lot of different things that we haven’t done yet. So our options are there.”The United States is in talks with China—Pyongyang’s main trading partner—on a possible new sanctions resolution and the Security Council is expected to hold a closed-door emergency meeting starting around 2000 GMT Tuesday.‘A substantial advance’Kim personally oversaw Sunday’s test, the official Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said, and pictures by state media showed him gazing at the missile in a hangar before the launch.The missile was launched on an unusually high trajectory, before splashing down in the Sea of Japan (East Sea).Analysts said the test suggested an actual range of 4,500 kilometres (2,800 miles) or more if flown for maximum distance.“This is the longest-range missile North Korea has ever tested,” Jeffrey Lewis of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in the US told AFP.On the respected 38 North website, aerospace engineering specialist John Schilling said it appeared to be an intermediate-range ballistic missile that could “reliably strike the US base at Guam” in the Pacific, 3,400 kilometres away.“More importantly,” he added, it “may represent a substantial advance to developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM)”.The North has made no secret of its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States—something President Donald Trump has vowed “won’t happen”.KCNA cited Kim as saying the North would never succumb to what it called the “highly ridiculous” US strategy of “militarily browbeating only weak countries and nations which have no nukes”.“If the US dares opt for a military provocation against the DPRK, we are ready to counter it,” it said.‘Reckless provocation’In April Pyongyang put dozens of missiles on show at a giant military parade through the capital, including one that appeared to be the type launched on Sunday.There are doubts whether the North can miniaturise a nuclear weapon sufficiently to fit it onto a missile nose cone, and no proof it has mastered the re-entry technology needed to ensure it survives returning into Earth’s atmosphere.Sunday’s test came less than a week after South Korea elected a new president, Moon Jae-In, who advocates reconciliation with Pyongyang and had expressed a willingness to visit the North to ease tensions.But Moon slammed the latest launch as a “reckless provocation” and said dialogue would be possible “only if the North changes its attitude”.Russian President Vladimir Putin said the test was dangerous, but warned against attempts to “intimidate” Pyongyang.Pyongyang could find itself the target of further global censure after security researchers reported Monday signs of a potential North Korean link to cyberattacks that have wreaked havoc on computer networks around the world.In the first clues of the origin of the massive ransomware attacks, Google researcher Neel Mehta posted computer code that showed similarities between the “WannaCry” malware and a vast hacking effort widely attributed to Pyongyang.Other experts quickly jumped on this as sign—although not conclusive—that North Korea may have been behind the outbreak.last_img read more

Why Americans Dont Cheat on Their Taxes

0 Comment

first_imgA more worrisome possibility is that tax morale has lagged behind declining trust, and will yet fall. High-profile tax-avoidance schemes—like those detailed in the so-called Panama Papers, or by The New York Times’s reporting on the Trump family’s tax dodges—could help erode morale. “Our sense of right and wrong is dramatically influenced by other people,” says Dan Ariely, a professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke. “If people think that the government is corrupt and not doing the right thing,” he told me, they may be more inclined to say, “Oh, I don’t want to pay money to a government that is misbehaving.” Read the whole story: The Atlantic If such a thing as American exceptionalism remains, maybe it can be found in this: Despite deep IRS budget cuts, an average audit rate that has plunged in recent years to just 0.6 percent, and a president who has bragged that dodging federal taxes is “smart,” most Americans still pay their income taxes every year. Even more remarkable, most of us feel obliged to pay. To quote the findings of a 2017 IRS survey: “The majority of Americans (88%) say it is not at all acceptable to cheat on taxes; this ethical attitude is not changing over time. —last_img read more
