Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero? Frank Lampard speaks out on ‘difficult’ FA Cup final selection

first_imgWilly Caballero and Kepa Arrizabalaga are competing for a place in Chelsea’s starting XI at WembleyChelsea head coach Frank Lampard admits he’s got an extremely ‘difficult’ decision to make as he prepares to choose between Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero for tomorrow’s FA Cup final but has called for togetherness regardless of the starting XI he fields against Arsenal. The Blues have impressed since the season restarted and have won ten of their last 13 games in all competitions, but speculation surrounding Kepa’s future has dominated the headlines ahead of the side’s trip to Wembley this weekend. A series of high-profile errors from Chelsea’s number one have forced the club to search for a new goalkeeper this summer, with Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, Ajax’s Andre Onana and Burnley’s Nick Pope all linked with moves to Stamford Bridge.

Pennsylvania Commissions Denounce Trump’s Latest 2020 Census Executive Memorandum

first_imgPennsylvania Commissions Denounce Trump’s Latest 2020 Census Executive Memorandum Press Release,  Statement The Pennsylvania commissions on Asian Pacific American, African American, Latino, Women and LGBTQ Affairs, and Governor’s 2020 Census Complete Count Commission, overseen by Governor Tom Wolf, released a joint statement today denouncing President Trump’s latest Executive Memorandum about the 2020 Census, and honoring the immense contributions of our immigrant communities.“The recent ‘Memorandum for the Secretary of Commerce Excluding Illegal Aliens from the Apportionment’ signed by President Donald Trump on July 21, 2020, will cause extreme confusion and distress in immigrant communities and significantly decrease their participation in the 2020 Census.“Excluding any resident from the Census runs counter to the Constitutional mandate to ‘count every person in the US.’ The resulting undercounting of the actual population of many communities will drastically decrease their allocation of federal dollars for critical services including education, transportation, healthcare and more. This in turn will severely impact all – citizens and non-citizens – who reside in these communities for the next decade.“We acknowledge the immense contributions of our immigrant communities in all spheres of our economy and society. We are especially thankful for their work on the frontlines of the war against COVID-19, including in healthcare and service industries, in the spheres of food production and delivery, in manufacturing, research and more. As neighbors, business owners, taxpayers, and workers, immigrants are an integral part of Pennsylvania’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all. While the legality and constitutionality of this Executive Memorandum is being challenged in courts, we extend our full support to our immigrant communities and urge them to participate in the Census now and to be counted.”Stephanie Sun, executive director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs, stated:“The Census is the starting point of democracy. We cannot allow this scare tactic to frighten immigrant communities away from participating in the Census. For every person counted, Pennsylvania receives about $21,000 over the next 10 years for critical services like Medicaid, Medicare, housing, education, school lunches, new hospitals, and infrastructure – critical resources that help our most vulnerable community members, especially when unexpected circumstances like Covid-19 occur. A complete Census count will also decide our political representation in the state legislatures and the U.S. House of Representatives. We can gain or lose a representative based on the number of residents counted and thus risk losing a critical vote on education, healthcare, taxes, immigration and more. The Asian Pacific American community stands in solidarity with all our immigrant brothers and sisters. Our strength lies in our diversity, collective history and growing presence in this country’s landscape.”Jalila Parker, executive director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on African American Affairs, stated:“The Census is a constitutional mandate. It is very clear that the people of the United States of America shall be counted every ten years. Not counting people based on race, ethnicity, or immigration status is racist. There is no other way to interpret the memo. Our Commission encourages everyone to raise their hand to be counted. We encourage everyone to raise their hand to be acknowledged for their contributions to our community. More importantly, we encourage everyone to raise their hand and be proud of who they are.”Luz Colon, executive director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs (GACLA), stated:“The field of survey is built upon experimentation, testing, and research. This is especially true with a survey as monumental as the decennial census. The questions in the 2020 Census are there because of extensive preparation and vetting. Making a change in the middle of the process will impact the response and will deteriorate trust and cause panic in communities all around the nation including many US citizens and USA born children. Also, it will put at risk those leaders and organizations that have work hard and ask people to trust the process hurting the work we have done to have a complete count.”Moriah Hathaway, executive director of the Pennsylvania Commission for Women, stated:“It is crucial that every Pennsylvanian is counted in the 2020 Census. Our immigrant community is invaluable and needs to be treated as such. The future of our Commonwealth and country depends on an accurate and complete Census count.”Rafael Álvarez Febo, executive director of the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs, stated:“The LGBTQ community stands in solidarity with immigrant communities and rebukes the unconstitutional actions taken by the Trump administration to tamper with and erase people from the US Census count. As a community that has continued to fight for the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity questions on the Census, we understand the importance of being counted. The constitution clearly outlines how and why a Census must be conducted and this action by Donald Trump and his administration further destroys the integrity of not just the Census, but in fact of our democratic institutions. We call on our partners in the legal community to act to block this egregious corruption of the function of the US Census.”Norman Bristol Colón, executive director, Governor’s 2020 Census Complete Count Commission, stated:“The constitution of the United States requires a complete count of all residents in our nation. In Pennsylvania, our tradition is to be in full compliance with the constitution and reject any action suggesting otherwise. The divisive language from Washington should not be embraced when above all the census is one of the most fundamental civic duties in our American society. We will continue to do our job in full compliance with the constitution of counting every Pennsylvania resident regardless if they have been here for generations or they just moved to our state in 2020.”The commissions will continue to work closely with community stakeholders to ensure a complete count for Pennsylvanians in the 2020 Census. The commissions, together with Gov. Wolf, will oppose any challenges that undermine the integrity of the Constitution of the United States of America.Ver esta página en español.

It’s pen and paper, not new technology which will help drive success

first_imgAREC speaker Scott HarrisSTOP wasting time on new technology and use the older simpler ways to drive your success, a leading millionaire mentor has told a Gold Coast real estate conference.Scott Harris, Australia’s Millionaire Mentor and the founder of the Ultimate Coach, said it was sometimes the simple ways which gave clarity and helped drive success.“How many great things started with a pen, a napkin and two glasses of wine?’’, Harris told the AREA 2017 conference at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.He said many of us waste time on technology and mostly used it in the wrong way.“It becomes a reality when we sit down and draw it, putting plans on paper affirms your thinking.”Harris said we make about 300 to 400 decisions a day and this included waking up and the decision to hit or not hit snooze.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North7 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day ago“Being successful comes down to allocating time. Choosing between an apple of muffin when you’re rushing to work could shape your destiny.”“Our brains were not built to bring us happiness, they are designed to survive,” Harris said.“When we ask people how they are, the natural response is usually, “I’m getting by” or “I’m all right”, and this is a really common response.”“A lot of people always talk about the ex-wife, or when they were 25 and some people talk about the great big plans they have for next week,” he said. We should be thinking about what we doing with our time right now.”“A lot of people’s calendars are not planned out as well as they could be because we are too busy thinking about the past or the future.”Having worked with many of the World’s most influential forces such as Tony Robbins, Brendon Burchard, Deepak Chopra, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, Sir Richard Branson, Nick Vujicic, Lord Alan Sugar and more.last_img read more

CoreLogic Pain and Gain: more Gold Coast units selling at a loss

first_imgKnight Frank Queensland head of project marketing Chris Litfin said the data was surprising with apartments in the Gold Coast’s up-market areas selling strong. Mr Litfin also believed buyers and sellers now had an even playing field, particularly with the interest rate drop. “Buyers can be a lot more aggressive than they have been and unless they have a good reason to sell, sellers can sit on their hands,” he said. “Regardless of who is in the box seat, there are always good buys and those that aren’t so good.” The latest Gold Coast property health check is in and what is one person’s loss is another’s gain. Picture: Glenn HampsonBUYERS are back in the box seat as more Gold Coast properties sell at bargain prices. The March quarter CoreLogic Pain and Gain report showed 12.2 per cent of Glitter Strip dwellings traded for less than what they previously sold for, equating to a loss of more than $20 million. The average hold period for these properties was nine years, with a median loss of $38,000. The percentage of homes that resold at a loss was the highest it had been in almost three years. Resales of units have bore the brunt of the market downturn the most, with 20.8 per cent selling for less — a total loss of almost $16 million.

Some for these criminals seems to be taking the law into their own hands. People come to Dominica for rest and relaxation. We talk about wellness and you cannot promote wellness when you have people being attacked. We need to urge everyone to come on board so we can arrest this trend which we are seeing taking precedence in Dominica,” she added.Atherton MartinMeanwhile another hotelier has supported Pestaina’s concern on the matter.Atherton Martin who was also at the press conference noted that the situation is escalating and hoteliers are afraid that it becomes a cultural trend.“I want to lend my support to the position and action that we have taken. This is the carnival season and this is a time when people tend to lower their inhibitions. This exposes people to even more potential problems. A lot of people may not be in full control of their selves. We cannot afford a repeat of these incidents that occurred over the last several weeks,” he said.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Villas-Boas confident over Townsend

first_img And the main reason the 22-year-old has had an extended run in the first team is because of an injury to Aaron Lennon, who is now fit and in contention for Sunday’s game at Aston Villa. Villas-Boas was concerned that Townsend’s experience with the international team would be counter-productive. The Portuguese feared the winger would go down the same route as Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone, who received call-ups and were then quickly discarded. Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will come back in to the reckoning by the time the World Cup comes around, but Villas-Boas is sure Townsend will feature for England for a long time to come so long as he keeps impressing for his club. The Portuguese added: “We’re very proud of what he has done, (we have) seen him play with so much confidence and determination he’s really set his place in the team, for Tottenham and for his country. “It’s performances like this that keep your place in the team. “Whenever he’s been called up by myself or Roy he’s given great performances. At the moment we’re very happy with what he’s been doing and I think Roy thinks the same. “It’s wonderful for him. He’s come along with the explosion he had in the Premier League, not just with Tottenham but with his country. “He is doing extremely well for club and country and deserves credit.” Townsend may find it easier to get into the England team than the Spurs XI. Lennon is available for the trip to Villa Park this weekend while £30million signing Erik Lamela is itching for a league start. Villas-Boas is looking for his team to bounce back in the Midlands following their shock 3-0 defeat to West Ham before the international break. “That definitely was a call to attention for us,” Villas-Boas said. “Everything is open this season, it showed us that surprise results can happen. “We analysed that game with the squad when everyone got back and made sure we’re able to give a response against Villa and going forward.” Andre Villas-Boas has no doubt Andros Townsend will be able to shoulder the pressure of being England’s next big thing. Jack Wilshere was afforded that tag after he burst onto the scene with Arsenal a couple of years ago while players like David Bentley have crashed and burned under the weight of expectation. Townsend got a taste of how fierce the spotlight on England can be this week when he found himself – through no fault of his own – in the middle of a race row. Villas-Boas knows Townsend’s every move will be scrutinised over the next seven months in the build-up to the World Cup, but he is sure the player will be able to cope. “That is part of growing up as a player,” the Tottenham manager said. “I would suppose that wouldn’t divert his attention too much. “I expect him to be the same player. There are going to be more people worried about him, he will be more in the public eye and they will demand performances from him and I expect him to respond. “Most of his colleagues are down to earth, he is in the right environment for his development and I think we have to help him in that sense.” Townsend had to go through nine loan spells before he got his first crack at regular first-team football with Spurs this season. Townsend’s stock has risen sharply over the last fortnight thanks to his explosive international debut against Montenegro and an impressive showing against Poland four days later. The 22-year-old’s place in the Tottenham squad was in doubt at the start of the season but now he is seen as England’s brightest emerging star. Press Associationlast_img read more

Former stars lock horns at Thurles

first_imgMikael D’Haguenet and Mourad both feature for Willie Mullins in the Thurles Racecourse Hurdle on Thursday. The first-named looked set to make his mark in championship company after landing the 2009 Neptune Novices’ Hurdle and while he has won his share of races since, he has failed to hit the expected heights. He finished two lengths adrift of Hurricane Fly in the Morgiana when last seen, with that stablemate subsequently relinquishing his Champion Hurdle crown last week. Multiple Graded winner Mourad has had just two runs since June 2012 and failed to beat a runner on his most recent appearance in the Limestone Lad Hurdle. Mullins will be hoping to get off to a winning start with Local Celebrity in the Templemore Beginners Chase. The 10-year-old fell in a race won by Trifolium back in November and has been given plenty of time to get over that mishap. An Dearthair Og broke his duck in no uncertain terms at Wexford on Monday and Henry de Bromhead turns him out again quickly under a penalty in the Jimmy Neville Memorial Handicap Chase. Sarah Battle also makes a swift reappearance, having managed to place only fifth when sent off favourite at Limerick last weekend. She tries her luck again in the Clonoulty Handicap Hurdle.
