Euro 2016: Roy Hodgson happy to continue but will not ‘beg’ to stay

first_imgEngland manager Roy Hodgson has said he is prepared to remain in the job after Euro 2016 but will not be ‘begging’ for a new deal.Hodgson’s contract expires after the tournament in France and Football Association chairman Greg Dyke indicated last week that the 68-year-old may have to lead the team to the semi-finals to guarantee staying on.”I’m not begging for the job. I am prepared to carry on,” Hodgson told British media ahead of Monday’s last-16 match against Iceland in Nice. “It is different to wanting it. I’m prepared to carry on if the FA want me to. (EURO FULL COVERAGE)”If they don’t want me to, then my contract will have run out and that is how it will be.”I believe in the team I am working with and believe the team is showing such potential that it will go on to do good things and if the FA want me to continue with me looking after them, I will be happy to do so.”England reached the last 16 after finishing second to Wales, who have already reached the quarter-finals, in Group B.They beat Wales 2-1 but draws against Russia and Slovakia left them in what turned out to be a much tougher half of the draw. They have scored three goals from their three games to date.If they beat Iceland, their next opponents will be either hosts France or Ireland.World champions Germany are also in that half of the draw, along with holders Spain and Italy.advertisementHodgson’s decision to make six changes for the final group game against Slovakia, which ended goalless, drew some criticism although FA chief executive Martin Glenn denied that he and Dyke had any problems with Hodgson’s decisions.”He has our full support, he has been a great manager and I think we are going to do great things in this tournament,” said Glenn.Asked about the criticism of his tactics, Hodgson indicated that it came from the media rather than from within the England hierarchy.”The FA will make the decision on what they want to do,” he said. “One hopes they will do it on their thinking and their observations and judgement and analysis on what is happening with the national team and not because some journalist has written something contrary to that.”last_img read more

Leander Paes prefers Saketh Myneni as Davis Cup partner

first_imgNever one to shy away from making his preferences known, Leander Paes once again stirred the hornets’ nest after his gritty four sets loss with Saketh Myneni to Olympic doubles champions Spain’s Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez in the World group play-off Davis Cup tie.After the Indian duo gave a good account of themselves in their very first professional match together, Paes indicated he wants to pair up with Myneni in future Davis Cups.”I really enjoyed playing with Saketh today. He is a natural ad court player and we combined really well. Ours is a very natural partnership. He has my back and he knows I have his. The way we played in our very first match against the Olympics gold winners, imagine what we can do if we play few more matches together. Saketh is my 108th partner. I know personalities. We don’t really have to try. We communicate very well. I hope I get my record of most doubles wins in Davis Cup with Saketh,” Paes said.It is not a secret that Paes and current traditional doubles partner in Davis Cup, Rohan Bopanna don’t get along well together. Bopanna didn’t even want to partner Paes at the Rio Olympics and the two failed miserably. Not just that, an ugly controversy broke off before they even took to the court in Rio with charges of Paes being unduly late to join the team. In the backdrop of the London Games selection fiasco, suffice to say there is no love lost between the two.advertisementPAES EYEING 8TH OLYMPICS?Interestingly, Bopanna had withdrawn from this tie due to an injury and now Paes has openly suggested he would rather partner with Myneni for the upcoming ties. Not just Davis Cup, Paes even hinted that 18-months down the line and for the next Olympics in 2020, this is a partnership they could look at.”I have always believed that selection is the selectors job, but the way we played and interacted with each other is very natural. It will be blind not to see that kind of magic,” Paes added.MYNENI NOT TOO KEEN ON PLAYING DOUBLESMyneni agreed, “We had a blast on the court today. We could not get the win given we played against two legends but in the future as much as we can play together would be great for me.”  Paes made an offer to Myneni to play with him on the ATP Tour whenever he feels ready. While Myneni diplomatically said he wants to keep singles as his priority for a few more years, he said it would be an honour for him to play with Paes eventually.”It’s a blessing for me to get such an offer. I have to get my singles rankings up in order to get into the doubles draw with Leander in big events. So it just goes to show that I have to push myself even more. I have always learnt a lot being with the Davis Cup team with the likes of Leander,” Myneni said.last_img read more

Tamim Iqbal century fires Bangladesh to 2-1 ODI series win vs West Indies

first_imgTamim Iqbal continued with his rich vein of form to smash another match-winning century as Bangladesh defeated West Indies by 18 runs in the third and final one day international to win the series 2-1 on Saturday.Tamim, who scored a hundred in the first ODI, hit 103 off 124 balls to help Bangladesh post 301/1. Mahmudullah too played an important knock of 67 off 49 deliveries while captain Mashrafe Mortaza scored a quick 25-ball 36 towards the end of Bangladesh innings.After a good start by openers Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis, the West Indies run rate slowed in the middle overs. Despite a fillip by Rovman Powell of 74 off 41 balls, the home side still fell short on 283/6.After being crushed in the Test series, Bangladesh won the ODI series, its first away from home in nine years.MATCH SCORECARDTamim was quiet in the Tests but loud in the ODIs, where he scored 130 not out in the first and 54 in the second. He raised his 11th ODI century in the 38th over with a single to long off and was out in the next over when a mistimed slog dropped at square leg.He hit two sixes and seven boundaries.His innings allowed Mahmudullah and captain Mashrafe Mortaza to take a swipe at West Indies. Mortaza hit 36 off 25 balls, and Mahmudullah powered Bangladesh past 250 and 300 for their highest ODI score against the West Indies.It was ominous. The team batting second hasn’t won in this series.The West Indies failed to chase down 279 in the first ODI, but defended 271 by three runs in the second.advertisementGayle laid a foundation with 73, including five sixes, and Powell tried his best in the death overs. But the middle overs were clogged with too many dot balls, and the home side paid the price.The three-match Twenty20 series starts on the same Warner Park on Tuesday.(With inputs from AP)last_img read more

ITF Calls for Lashing Ban for Foreign Crew in Canada

first_imgzoomIllustration. Source: Flickr – under the CC BY 2.0 license; Image by: Kees Torn The International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) has called on the Transport Canada to ban foreign-crew from undertaking lashing work while vessels are underway in the Saint Lawrence river.The move comes on the back of an incident, that occurred on May 19, which took the life of a seafarer. Namely, the Sri Lankan second officer fell overboard the Maersk containership Patras in the morning hours. Despite an extensive search and rescue operation his body has not yet been recovered, ITF said.Investigations undertaken by Transport Canada and the ITF indicate that the man fell overboard whilst lashing, and crew claim that he was the only crew member not wearing fall protection.“Early reports indicated that this incident occurred while dropping a pilot ladder, however after speaking to the crew and investigating further, we’ve determined that’s not the case. This seafarer was handling a 4-meter lashing bar, almost half his weight, when he fell overboard,” Peter Lahay, ITF Canadian coordinator, said.“We will await the finding of official inquiry but from our initial investigations there are serious questions about crew fatigue and the safety procedures on board that need to be answered.”The ITF further said that it invited Maersk to join the global union federation in calling on Transport Canada and the Port of Montreal to ensure that lashing is done by qualified dockers.last_img read more

Kejriwal says Modis nationalism is fake appeals traders not to fall in

first_imgNEW DELHI: A week before the Lok Sabha election in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took the poll battle to unite the trader community of Delhi. “You have always voted for the BJP but this time I will urge traders to be with us and I promise that I will fight for your causes in every possible way. Modi’s nationalism is fake and do not fall in this trap again” said CM Kejriwal.A large number of Delhi voters belong to the trader community and this has always been a strong voter base of the BJP. However, from the ground reports due to the effect of sealing drive, the community faced troubles with their business. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesThe BJP, which used to be traders’ party, has “broken the backbone” of the community, he alleged, adding thousands of notices are being sent to traders and all this is being done with the intention of “extorting” money from them. “The Modi government has unleashed ‘tax terrorism’ on traders,” CM Kejriwal said. “The policies of the Modi government have ruined traders. In a single stroke, demonetisation brought endless miseries to traders. When the traders’ community had barely recovered from this rude shock, the Modi government hastily brought in the GST, which nobody could understand since it was implemented without any proper planning,” he alleged. After note ban, the next jolt came in the form of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which led to the closure of many shops and factories, causing loss of numerous jobs and heaped miseries on traders, the AAP leader claimed, adding under the Modi government, the traders’ community is feeling “orphaned”.

Referring to the violence in Mayapuri on April 13, Kejriwal claimed that the AAP intervened and stopped sealing drive. “Give all the seven Lok Sabha seats (of Delhi) to us, I will ensure that there is no sealing in the national capital. You (traders) strengthen our hands, we will ensure justice,” he said. Around 14 officials were injured after clashes broke out between the security personnel and scrap dealers during the sealing drive in Mayapuri on April 13.last_img read more

As LL Bean cuts costs liberal returns policy could change

FREEPORT, Maine – L.L. Bean is moving to cut costs by freezing pensions and offering voluntary early retirements, and company officials say they are taking a hard look at its generous shipping and return policies.The Freeport-based outdoors retailer will freeze its defined-benefit pension plan and boost its 401(k) savings contributions to all 5,000 workers, including 1,000 out-of-state store employees who were not previously eligible for the full pension, company officials said.It’s part of a broader look at all aspects of the business, company officials said, which could lead to changes that affect shoppers.L.L. Bean currently offers free shipping on everything, and its “satisfaction” guarantee is so liberal that it’s led to abuse of the return policy. Company officials said they will have more to say later this year about shipping and efforts to combat fraudulent returns.The privately held company expects to reduce its workforce by about 500 workers — about 10 per cent — through early retirement incentives, said CEO Steve Smith. Other employment changes include more flexible time off, paid parental leave and paid eldercare support, benefits employees have been seeking, he said.The employment changes were announced by Smith in a memo and in meetings with workers Thursday.The changes, which go into effect next year, were in the works before Smith’s arrival as CEO last year and unwanted publicity surrounding board member Linda Bean’s campaign donations, officials said.Chairman Shawn Gorman, great-grandson of founder L.L. Bean, said such decisions “weigh heavily” on the family-owned business. But he said they’re necessary for the company to remain competitive.“Without a healthy core business, it’s really hard to satisfy any of the stakeholders,” he told The Associated Press. “So the move is designed to get us to a more competitive and modern benefits package that allowed us to be sustainable for the foreseeable future.”The pension move is no big surprise in a challenging retail environment. L.L. Bean’s sales were flat in 2015, and growth for the five years before that was slow.Nationwide, the private sector has been eliminating pensions. In 2015, about one-fifth of Fortune 500 companies offered a traditional or hybrid defined benefit plan to new hires, down from 60 per cent in 1998, according to business consulting firm Willis Towers Watson .Smith said the goal is to return L.L. Bean to the strong growth levels the company experienced in the 1980s and 1990s.“As long as your expenses are growing faster than your sales, then you’re not able to invest in growth,” Smith said. “What we’re focused on is getting to where we’re back in growth mode.” by David Sharp, The Associated Press Posted Feb 9, 2017 12:09 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 9, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email As L.L.

BBC celebrity chef forced to leave his own restaurant over claims he

Dan Doherty, on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary Berry But a company insider told The Sunday Times that Mr Doherty left the restaurant voluntarily while the investigation took place and that his new role had nothing to do with limiting his contact with staff.Yesterday, Dave Ahern, the gourmet chef who founded the brand Gastro Punk, said while not condoning the alleged actions, Mr Doherty had been through a tough time, citing a divorce.Mr Doherty did not respond directly to requests from The Telegraph for comment, but a statement from Urban Inns, which runs the gastropub, said: “We take allegations of misconduct in any form very seriously and we used an independent HR company to thoroughly investigate some suggestions of inappropriate communications.”Urban Inns has acted, and continues to do so, on these recommendations, following which Dan returned to work.” A BBC celebrity chef was allegedly forced to leave his own restaurant temporarily over claims that he sexually harassed female staff.Dan Doherty, a judge on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary Berry, left his gastropub The Royal Oak in Marylebone, central London, for a month in November after allegations surfaced that he sexually harassed a female staff member, asking her for oral sex.Mr Doherty was also alleged to have told workers that he wanted to see them “without their kitchen whites on”, according to The Sunday Times.Last night the BBC said it was in talks with Mr Doherty, 33, as a result of the allegations but refused to comment when The Telegraph asked if his role in the show would be under review.In a statement, Mr Doherty said: “I would never intentionally make offensive comments to anyone I work with, female or male. I have apologised to the whole team for any offence I may have inadvertently caused. It would never be my intention.” Dan Doherty was a judge on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary BerryCredit:BBC screengrab Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Android 24 expected in April with Honeycomb app support

first_imgWith all the talk of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) lately, and its exclusivity for tablets, it’s easy to forget that the 2.X line will continue for smartphones. The latest handsets ship with Android 2.3, but Android 2.4 is only a couple of months away according to manufacturer Viewsonic.Talking to Pocket-lint, the company stated that Android 2.4 will arrive in April and it will ship on Viewsonic’s forthcoming ViewPad 4 smartphone. As to why 2.4 is shipping so soon: it’s all to do with compatibility with Honeycomb-specific apps.AdChoices广告Honeycomb tablets will have dual-core processors and therefore Android 3.0 has to support such chips and apps utilizing both cores. But Android 2.3 and previous versions don’t have such support, so 2.4 is being rushed out to plug that hole. What it means is the Android apps meant for use on a tablet device will run on single-core smartphone processors as long as they are loaded with Android 2.4.What will confuse consumers is that 2.4 will still be classed as Gingerbread which is the name already given to 2.3. The thinking being that 2.4 will quickly replace 2.3 and it’s what 2.3 should have been.So Android 2.4 should be effectively classed as a hotfix for 2.3. As for Ice Cream, there’s suggestions that it’s actually Android 3.1.Read more at Pocket-lintMatthew’s OpinionThis could get confusing fast. It looks as though Android 2.4 is what you want if considering buying a new smartphone in the next couple of months. Otherwise you won’t be able to use some apps meant for Honeycomb on your smartphone. However, to get 2.4 you will have to wait until after April.The big question this throws up is how easy will the upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4 be? Will vendors drag their feet releasing the update to 2.3 users? We suspect the Nexus S will get it quickly, but any new 2.3 smartphones releasing through March and April probably won’t.This news isn’t confirmed by Google, but with the ViewPad 4 expected to arrive at some point in the next few months and shipping with 2.4, it does seem likely to happen.last_img read more

Photo: AFPSouth Korea and the United States are expected to announce the suspension of “large-scale” military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearise, news agency Yonhap said on Sunday.Citing an unnamed government source, the South Korean news agency said the suspension was likely to affect only major joint exercises, not more routine military training.U.S. president Donald Trump surprised officials in Seoul and Washington when he pledged to end “war games” after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last week.Immediately after the announcement, U.S. forces in Korea said they had received no guidance on stopping any drills, and South Korean officials said they were trying to figure out which exercises Trump was referring to.However, in a sign Seoul may be open to suspending drills, South Korean president Moon Jae-in said on Thursday his government would need to be flexible when it came to applying military pressure on North Korea if it was sincere about denuclearisation.Moon said South Korea would carefully consider joint military drills with the United States and he asked his officials to cooperate with the United States on the issue, his office said in a statement at the time.Yonhap also reported on Sunday that during military talks between the two Koreas on Thursday, South Korean officials asked their northern counterparts to relocate artillery 30 to 40 kilometres away from the heavily fortified military demarcation line that divides the two countries.The South’s defense ministry denied it made such a request, Yonhap said.The talks, the first in more than a decade, held in the border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone (DMZ), followed an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tensions and cease “all hostile acts”.North and South Korea failed to reach any concrete agreement during those talks, officials said.North Korea proposed to Seoul to disarm, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the only site in the DMZ where both countries’ soldiers stand almost face to face, the South’s presidential spokesman said on Friday.About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War, which ended in 1953 in an armistice that left the two Koreas technically still at war.At a Senate hearing on Thursday, Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to South Korea, Harry Harris, backed the idea of a “pause” in major military exercises. He said his understanding was that any suspension would involve only major military exercises and that regular training of U.S. forces in South Korea would continue, although final decisions were up to the department of defense.The U.S.-South Korean exercise calendar hits a high point every year with the Foal Eagle and Max Thunder drills, which both wrapped up last month.The next major drill, Ulchi Freedom Guardian, is planned for the end of the summer.Last year, 17,500 American and more than 50,000 South Korean troops participated in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills, although the exercise is mostly focused on computerised simulations rather than live field exercises that use weapons, tanks or aircraft.last_img
