Newcastle enter race for QPR target Defoe

first_imgtalkSPORT’s north east football correspondent Graham Courtney claims Newcastle are intersted in QPR target Jermain Defoe.The Toronto forward appears to be on his way out of the MLS side, following Ryan Nelson’s departure.The Super Hoops were thought to be favourites to sign the 31-year-old becasue of the hitman’s connections with Harry Redknapp.But Courtney claims Defoe is also close to Alan Pardew, who managed him at West Ham, and that could see the ex-Tottenham star move to St James’ Park.“Newcastle are the latest side linked to Jermain Defoe,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “There’s chaos at Toronto because they have got rid of Ryan Nelson as their manager.“I know there’s a chance he’ll go to QPR in London but, if there’s one person that he knows really well in football it’s Alan Pardew.“He was the West Ham manager when Defoe was at the club.”last_img read more

Classic Transfer: Chelsea sign versatile Frenchman to strengthen defence

first_imgtalkSPORT casts an eye back on the signing of William Gallas in May 2001.The French defender arrived at Stamford Bridge to become Claudio Ranieri’s first signing of the summer, ahead of the Italian’s debut season in charge in west London.A fee of £6.2 million was enough to prise the versatile defender away from Marseille, whom Gallas had played for four years, following a brief spell with Caen.He arrived two years before Roman Abramovich bought the club, but the Blues – who finished sixth in the Premier League the season before – were already investing heavily under the ownership of Ken Bates, in an attempt to secure Champions League football.Along with Gallas, Chelsea splashed out that summer was then considered a huge sum of £11m on 23-year-old Frank Lampard, as well as a combined £15m on Barcelona’s Emmanuel Petit and Boudewijn Zenden.Gallas initially formed a partnership with Marcel Desailly at the centre of the club’s defence, then John Terry, but the Blues could only manage another sixth place finish and were beaten 2-0 by double winners Arsenal in the FA Cup final. With Chelsea on the brink of financial ruin in 2003, Gallas was part of the team that sneaked into the Champions League places on the final day of the season.Within weeks, Roman Abramovich had bought the club from Bates and a new era of extravagant spending – the likes of which English football had never seen – was instigated at Stamford Bridge.Gallas was duly part of the squad that claimed the Blues’ first Premier League title under the guidance of self-appointed ‘Special One’, Jose Mourinho, in 2005.However, the Portuguese manager often used Gallas out of position as new arrival Ricardo Carvalho soon became an undroppable linchpin of Chelsea’s rearguard, alongside Terry.The lack of opportunities eventually proved to be a source of frustration for Gallas, who failed to clear Luis Garcia’s ‘ghost goal’ in a Champions League semi-final at Anfield in 2005.A second successive Premier League title was secured in Mourinho’s second season, but Gallas had seen enough. He wanted out.After threatening to score an own goal if he wasn’t allowed to leave, Gallas joined Arsenal, with Ashley Cole controversially moving in the opposite direction.Gallas went on to become the Gunners’ captain, before he switched to another London rival in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur in 2010. He liked burning bridges, didn’t he?Retirement arrived following a spell in the A-League with Perth Glory. Unfortunately, the former France international didn’t exactly cover himself in glory down under…But despite his sour departure from Stamford Bridge, Gallas’ time there remains the most fruitful spell of his career.

Arnold’s mistake

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Re “Schwarzenegger wants rail bond put on hold” (Jan. 7): Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s plan to scrap funding for the California High Speed Rail Project in favor of more funding for freeways is a critical mistake. More people are coming here every day, and more freeways only means more cars, the same old traffic snarls and wasted hours of your lives sitting in traffic, breathing toxic air. One way to help fund the rail project would be to first create a spur line between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. When you consider the vast amounts of traffic traveling between Las Vegas and Southern California on the I-15, the logic should be self-evident, as many a Southern Californian who could avoid using the I-15 to Vegas would do so. Robert Barr Burbank Gov. Girlie Man Re “Arnold steers down middle” (Jan. 9): Middle? What part of $222 billion is middle? Arnold is pummeled by the enormously powerful unions of California, and instead of responding with leadership as a previous actor-turned-governor would have, he folds like a wilted rose. He caves to the Kennedy mystique by hiring an extreme left-wing female friend of the wife, floats a multibillion-dollar state school bond issue and now hangs out a white-flag spending bond that even the Democrats are finding difficult to swallow. That’s real leadership. Make a 180 degree turn and run the other way. Who is the girlie-man now? Patrick Weir Chatsworth Dictatorial powers Several recent letters and opinion articles have supported President George W. Bush’s arrogation of “wartime” power to secretly eavesdrop on telephonic and electronic communications with no check by judicial authority. In a similar manner, this administration has claimed the right to “pre-emptively” invade other countries, to torture and hide prisoners captured in such invasions and to permanently jail U.S. citizens without access to attorneys or courts. Meanwhile, groups protesting or demonstrating against the Iraq war are reportedly being surveilled and their telephonic data are being “mined.” In previous eras, government readily used such tactics against political and personal enemies. We deplore other countries that use such dictatorial tactics and policies, and are losing our freedoms the more we do the same. We have massively lost friends in the Middle East and in formerly friendly nations of the world through such methods while not finding solid solutions to the problems in Palestine, poverty, AIDS and so on throughout the world. Kenneth McClain North Hills Just like old times Sure, the White House can make an argument for illegal domestic wiretapping that sounds justified – tracking down terrorists, evildoers, etc. – but aren’t we all avoiding some obvious questions about the White House’s illegal tapping? How about tapping Democrats during a domestic national election, just as an example, or any other non-evildoer domestic group the White House would like to keep tabs on? It’s starting to sound a little like Watergate without the room service. Joe Furey Valley Village Permission granted Dear NSA: Please tap my telephone, with or without a warrant, anytime you find it may be used to converse with Muslim terrorists. Thank you. Ralph Smathers Newhall Inconvenient truth Re “Fat-wallet effects?” (Their Opinions, Jan. 9): Bill Pratt claims that Republicans fought civil-rights legislation “tooth and nail.” Consider the 1964 Civil Rights Act: In the House of Representatives, 80 percent of Republicans supported the legislation, as opposed to 61 percent of Democrats. When it came down to the final Senate vote, six Republicans and 21 Democrats voted against passage. The truth is so inconvenient for Bush bashers. Louis J. Feldman Van Nuys Foot in mouth Re “Fat-wallet effects?” (Their Opinions, Jan. 9): It is apparent that Mr. Pratt needs a history lesson. It was the Democrats, not the Republicans, who fought civil-rights legislation “tooth and nail,” Al Gore’s father among them. I would suggest a little research before inserting your foot in your mouth. Brinton Marsden Woodland Hills And you prefer … Re ” Controlling the oil” (Your Opinions, Jan. 9): Jean Stauber quotes Donald Rumsfeld as saying we can “control the oil fields” in Iraq, as if that were the wrong strategy. Whom would she rather have in control, the terrorists? Greg Tarizzo Valencia Bozocrat financing Re “Campus expansion costs soar” (Jan. 9): The article about Mission College expansion shows that nothing changes in this city. Originally scheduled to be completed by 2003; now it’s 2006, and officials are getting close to starting. Originally estimated to cost $7 million; now $15 million. Actually seeing the costs (only) double can probably be considered quite an achievement, since most of the time they at least triple. Maybe we need a ballot to vote on that would force any bozocrat to use the word “guesstimate” for the costs and “whenever” for the completion date. George Timko West Hills Big difference Re “O’Reilly’s off base” (Your Opinions, Jan. 10): Jack Allen is wrong and Bill O’Reilly is right. Anybody who purposely kills innocent women and children is no “freedom fighter.” Yes, American forces have killed innocent women and children in Iraq, but there is a big difference: These victims were not targeted by the U.S. military. If the cowardly terrorists had not hidden like little girls among innocent women and children, this would not have happened. We are fighting a war; these things happen. Allen should try and see the positive things our brave men and women are doing over there, and try rooting for our country for a change. Alan N. Toffel Palmdale End, don’t rend, it Re “Fixing the LAUSD” (Our Opinions, Jan. 8): The charter schools have it all over the Los Angeles Unified School District regarding education competence. I do not believe in breaking up the LAUSD into small units. Better to just close the whole bureaucratic mess altogether, and save me (and you) hundreds of dollars of tax money, while providing a better education for our children. Charles Dusheck Chatsworth USC also guilty Re “Shame on Texas” (Your Opinions, Jan. 6): I don’t know what game William H. Link was watching, but I saw the Trojans do the exact same thing he is accusing the Texas players of doing. Reggie Bush actually swung at the Texas players after he was run out of bounds. I saw blatant holding and a couple of face masks that should have been called against USC and weren’t. Just because you don’t like the other team, don’t accuse it of doing something that your own team was doing as well. It’s called football. Becky Butler Sunland Shocking photo Re “Making merry mulch” (Jan. 8): I was shocked to see the photos of city workers shredding Christmas trees in Sunday’s paper! Where was Mayor Villaraigosa?

Quiet man, caring heart

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Teuscher served in the U.S. Army in Europe during World War II and after his military service he moved to San Diego, then to Phoenix, where he worked for Motorola. In 1965, he moved to the San Fernando Valley and began working as chief engineer at Veritron in Chatsworth. After Veritron closed, Teuscher worked for two other companies before retiring in 1989. “He never wore a pair of jeans until we were married,” said Josephine, who met Teuscher at Veritron West. “He was very fastidious in the way he dressed. He was short in stature and people at work affectionately called him ‘the little dude.”‘ After he retired, Teuscher loved to travel with his wife in his motor home to Lake Havasu and other scenic areas to camp and fish. He especially enjoyed fishing near Bishop and preferred camping in the mountains and deserts. His favorite author was Western writer Louis L’Amour, and he enjoyed listening to jazz. Teuscher also liked to work on his cars and “tinker” in his garage, taking delight in devising ways to repair things around the house. “He was the most kindest man you’d ever meet. He took care of his family,” said grandson James Paul. “The top things I learned from him were love your family and love all animals. He was so kind at heart all the time. Such a good man. They broke the mold with him.” James Richard Teuscher was born Sept. 3, 1924, in Allegany, N.Y. He grew up in the farming and oil town of Duke Center, Pa., and graduated from Otto Junior-Senior High School in 1942. He married his first wife, Viola, in the late 1940s. She died in 1987 and Teuscher married his second wife, Josephine Schaff Bishop, in 1988. Teuscher is survived by his wife, Josephine; a daughter, Nancy Jo Boyle; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and a brother, Raymond Teuscher. A memorial service was held at Gates Kingsley and Gates, Praiswater Mortuary in Canoga Park. Teuscher’s ashes will be interred at Oakwood Memorial Park in Chatsworth. Donations in his memory can be made to Special Olympics or other charity.

James Teuscher was a quiet man with a compassionate heart and an affinity for all living creatures. Teuscher, a longtime Canoga Park resident, died of an aneurysm March 16. He was 81. “He loved nature. He would not kill a fly in the house,” said his wife, Josephine Teuscher. “Animals took to him. It was a release and a comfort for him to take care of wild creatures.” Teuscher cared for many dogs and cats, and during the last 17 years of his life raised an African Grey Parrot named Calvin who flew into Teuscher’s yard one August day. When Teuscher couldn’t find its owner, it stayed. “He was a loving man. He was steadfast, handsome and quiet. He had a handshake to greet you and a twinkle in his eye,” Josephine said. “Jim was quiet-spoken. He was a simple man with simple tastes.” last_img read more

Donegal tourism promoted at major Galway festival

first_imgDonegal Tourism was well positioned to promote County Donegal in the heart of Galway City at the harbour during the massively popular SeaFest 2017 maritime event from June 30th to July 2nd 2017. Donegal garnered huge interest from both domestic and international visitors at the festival, making it the second year that Donegal Tourism have attended the event to showcase the ‘Coolest Place on the Planet.’Ireland’s national maritime festival SeaFest attracted an incredible 101,113 visitors to Galway Harbour during the three day event. The figures, just released by SeaFest, have shown a phenomenal 68% growth in attendance in just one year. Last year SeaFest saw 60,000 visitors attend the festival, and in 2015, its inaugural year, it netted 10,000 visitors. Galway Harbour was transformed into a giant interactive ‘sea world’ for the three day festival and the waterfront was awash with non-stop activities and entertainment for those of all ages.Free sailing and kayaking was on offer and the Irish Sailing Association also offered disabled access for budding sailors over the weekend. There were open tours available on a number of vessels in the ship filled harbour including the tall ship The Phoenix, the Irish naval vessel LÉ Ciara, the Commissioners of Irish Lights Granuaile and the Marine Institute’s research vessel the RV Celtic Explorer.The huge display from the Defence Forces was popular with the young and young at heart. BIM and Bord Bia’s Seafood Experience featured live cookery and fishmongery demonstrations, as well as interactive exhibits and displays of live fish and shellfish species. Marine-inspired entrepreneurs based in the West of Ireland shared their stories in the LookWest.ie Marquee.Donegal Tourism in association with Donegal County Council maximised the potential to raise awareness of the Donegal brand, Go Visit Donegal with a branded marquee positioned in a key focal point at Galway Harbour where marketing staff were on hand to distribute Donegal brochures and maps at the event. Donegal Tourism ran a competition to win a trip to Donegal that received over 1000 entries. Donegal Tourism wish to thank Paul Diver at the Sandhouse Hotel and Spa who offered a complimentary 2 night stay with evening meal and also Eddie Marshall from Donegal Bay Waterbus who offered a complimentary cruise on the Donegal Bay Waterbus as part of this attractive prize.Joy Harron, Marine Tourism Marketing & Development Officer with Donegal Tourism said that “too many visitors arrive in Dublin with plans to travel to the South of Ireland only. Donegal Tourism wanted to showcase all that Donegal has to offer and to say that next time; visitors need to travel to the North West and experience Donegal, the Coolest Place on the Planet.“SeaFest 2017 was the perfect place to capture this audience of both domestic and international visitors”.Donegal Tourism carries out a variety of online and offline marketing activities in support of Fáilte Ireland campaigns to draw visitors North West on the Wild Atlantic Way.SeaFest 2017 incorporated a series of marine-related business and research events, the Annual Our Ocean Wealth Summit, as well as the maritime festival which took place over the weekend. Figures released by SEMRU at Our Ocean Wealth Summit, held as part of SeaFest on Friday 30 June, show that Ireland’s ‘blue economy’ is performing better than the general economy. The figures indicate that the direct economic value of Ireland’s ocean economy was €1.8 billion or approximately 0.9% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016, which represents a 20% increase on 2014 levels.Donegal has great potential to develop its blue economy with over 1134 km of the longest mainland coastline in Ireland, with beautiful and rugged seascapes on the Wild Atlantic Way.Coastal communities in Donegal are working together with local authorities, tourism bodies and other organisations and businesses to develop all aspects of the blue economy in particular the many opportunities presented by the marine tourism sector and this collaborative approach will help deliver positive results and future successes in Donegal.Donegal tourism promoted at major Galway festival was last modified: July 14th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGalwayseafesttourismlast_img read more

first_imgUPDATED: SHAY Given played the first half of Ireland’s friendly clash with Hungary tonight – and proved his fitness in time for Sunday’s Euro 2012 opener against Croatia.The Donegal goalkeeper was called into action several times in the first half of a game where the kick-off was delayed due to thunderstorms.In the 17th minute Dzsudzsak tried his luck from distance and Given did well to get down and take it first time. Within a minute Given stops the same Hungarian striker with another smart save.And it wasn’t third time lucky in the 24th minute as Dzsudzsak fired another shot on goal, but again the Lifford man made the save.Kieron Westwood came on for the second half, but Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni was happy with Shay’s efforts.Westwood also pulled off some fine saves in the first 15 minutes of the second half. Shay looked relaxed in a tracksuit on the bench in the second half.Ireland had a much better second half, creating several chances.And they had the ball in the net after a combination between Walters and Keane, but the goal was wrongly ruled off-side.A good workout for Ireland though.“We were a little bit lucky, because in the first half we could have gone two nil down but Shay Given was terrific,” Trapattoni told a news conference. “Our opponents deserved to go ahead, and at the end we could have lost three nil. Hungary are quite a strong team, with good youngsters, playing some nice football.”Ireland team: Given, O’Shea, Dunne, St Ledger, Ward, Duff, Andrews, Whelan, McGeady, Keane, Doyle.Subs: 16 Westwood, 12 Kelly, 14 Walters, 15 Gibson, 17 Hunt, 18 O’Dea, 19 Long.SHAY PROVES FITNESS IN FINE FIRST HALF DISPLAY IN HUNGARY was last modified: June 5th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:SHAY PROVES FITNESS IN FINE FIRST HALF DISPLAY IN HUNGARYlast_img read more
