Mendy vows to put down phone & listen to Guardiola

first_imgManchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy says he no longer uses his phone at the club’s training ground – so he can listen to manager Pep Guardiola instead.Mendy became a firm fan favourite during his first season at the Etihad Stadium despite missing much of the campaign with a serious knee injury, thanks to his humorous posts on Twitter and Instagram.The France left-back has been instrumental in City’s first two Premier League games of the current campaign but Guardiola has found it necessary to warn him to focus more on his football than social media.

Which is the best coaching duo in the Big 12?

first_imgScreen shot 2014-05-06 at 10.03.37 AMI started thinking the other day about Big 12 football coaches — I don’t know why I do these things, only that they happen.Then I started ranking them in my head then I threw in basketball coaches and now, here we are. I made a poll below to see what your thoughts are but before we get there, let me give you mine.First, I think this is pretty tough. All the schools with what I consider terrific basketball coaches have “meh” football coaches and vice versa. Sadly, I think OU takes my top spot. I don’t think Lon Kruger is the best basketball coach in the Big 12 but whatever he lacks, Stoops makes up for. The second slot is up for grabs. You could talk me into probably four different duos. I guess I’ll go with Hoiberg and Rhoads but only because I value basketball more than most and because I think Rhoads is better than his record suggests. If you pick, say, Snyder and Weber, I wouldn’t blame you.I’ll round out my top three with — I cannot believe I’m typing this — Briles and Drew. Briles is one of the three best in the Big 12 in football and it’s sort of hard to argue with the fact that Baylor has been to three Sweet 16s in the last five years, isn’t it? Are we really at this point? If I didn’t think Weis was so awful I’d have him and Self in the three spot, same for OSU and Ford. Gundy and Self are both top 12 coaches in their respective sports but they’re being weighed down by their counterparts.Here are my full rankings:1. Stoops/Kruger2. Hoiberg/Rhoads3. Briles/Drew4. Self/Weis5. Gundy/Ford6. Snyder/Weber7. Kingsbury/Smith8. Barnes/Strong9. Holgorsen/Huggins10.

Stephen Hendry: ‘Yips trivialises it. It was much more than that’

first_imgShare on Pinterest Sign up to The Recap, our weekly email of editors’ picks. Hendry ground his way through qualifying and in the first round against Stuart Bingham at the Crucible he sank a 147 maximum. Hendry had already decided to retire and become an ambassador for 8-ball pool in China. “I got to the Crucible having flown to China and back, with one day there to meet my new employers. Somehow the 147 came about. It was amazing because, of the 36 shots, only six were played properly. My game had debilitated so far it was mostly shots I wasn’t hitting properly. I’d given every shot a pint of blood to get it in the pocket. The outsider was probably saying, ‘That’s amazing.’ Inside, it felt horrible.”He beat John Higgins in the second round but, 3-0 down to Stephen Maguire in the quarters, it was over. “Clearing up in the fourth frame, I knew if I didn’t get perfectly on the blue I’d leave myself this pink. So consequently, on the brown, you’re thinking about two shots later and ‘I can’t play it.’ I was finished.” Are the yips really the greatest threat to a golfer? – video Higgins was initially kind to Hendry but “it turned to resentment. He directed it at Steve Davis and then me because Alex believed he made snooker. In a way he was right. But when he wasn’t as good as us he couldn’t cope.”Hendry was still disappointed when many younger players failed to travel with him to Belfast for Higgins’s funeral in 2010. He feels even deeper affection for White, his boyhood hero, whom he beat in four of his seven world championship final victories.“He’d get introduced and 95% of the audience would go mental. I’d walk down the stairs to the odd boo. I liked it – being the bad one, the one who’s going to beat him. But you’d never hear a bad word from Jimmy about anybody. Higgins used to be nasty – but if Jimmy said anything, it was in jest. And he took losing with such grace.” Ronnie’s the best player I’ve ever seen and people forget I actually played him.He gave me some hammerings Pinterest Stephen Hendry Share on WhatsApp Facebook Share on Twitter 5:44 interviews Twitter He smiles with nostalgia rather than in judgment. “Kenny Dalglish said: ‘Show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser.’ Jimmy was an amazing loser. I’m sure inside he was devastated but he never showed it. If I’d had lost that final, I would be inconsolable.”Hendry was still a teenager when Davis demolished him in every frame of a six-game exhibition. “I hated it, losing to Steve night after night but I would do the same in his position. I’d be willing to kill the young upstart every night.”Davis did not compliment Hendry when the Scot finally beat him – and Hendry shared that mentality. “I’d practised with John Higgins for years and when he became world champion I couldn’t congratulate him. A normal person says: ‘Well done.’ I couldn’t. It didn’t matter if it was my best friend, my brother, I didn’t want anyone else to win. It still hurts me, watching people win at the Crucible. Steve let it go years ago. That’s why he played longer than me. He treated it as a day out. I could never do that.”Hendry and O’Sullivan have fallen out occasionally but now “we get on”. Mates is probably too strong a word because Ronnie is complex. There are times you’ll be his best friend and times he’ll virtually not say hello to you.”There is, instead, respect and rivalry. “Ronnie’s the best player I’ve ever seen and people forget I actually played him. I was obviously on my way down and he gave me some hammerings.”Hendry responds emphatically when asked what would happen if he and O’Sullivan met each other at their very peak. “I believe I would win. If we had a four-session match, where things change, I would back myself every time. I was stronger mentally. But he’s more talented than me, making shots left-handed and sinking a 147 in 4½ minutes. My fastest maximum would be over nine minutes.” Since you’re here… Share on Messengercenter_img In his book Hendry details the way in which his manager, Ian Doyle, controlled him. Doyle even made Hendry break up with his girlfriend, Mandy, because he believed the young Scot should be consumed by snooker. Later, when he had finally married Mandy, Hendry horrified Doyle by mixing with other players. But Hendry believes now that losing his Ice Man image undermined him.“Without a doubt. In the 90s I never socialised with other players. That changed. I wanted to spend more time in the players’ lounge. I became friendly with Mark Williams. There’s no doubt it affected my invincibility. Ronnie O’Sullivan is still the best player in the world on his day now and he doesn’t mix with the players. You need that coldness. But I missed out as a teenager and thought: ‘I want to enjoy being with people and going out for dinner.’ It was to my detriment as a competitive animal.”During his 26-year career Hendry straddled different eras and faced a range of compelling players from Alex Higgins to O’Sullivan. He describes how drink once ran through the game. “Jimmy White and the others would have half a lager while playing. Bill Werbeniuk had to start drinking four hours before a match. He had this condition where he either took beta blockers, which were banned, or alcohol to calm his heart rate. If he had a match at 10 in the morning, he got up at six to start drinking beer. Alex obviously liked to drink. Sometimes we practised and he used the table to hold himself up. But he still played unbelievable snooker.” “It was a mixture of embarrassment, anger, frustration, sadness, everything,” Stephen Hendry says as he remembers how his dominance of snooker unravelled into, in his mind, a shambling wreck of a game. When the end came, in the quarter-finals of the 2012 world championships, Hendry was so besieged by psychological demons “there was nothing positive left”.Hendry’s favourite sportsmen are Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher, Nick Faldo and AP McCoy and he was once as imperious as they had been. He holds the record for the most world titles, with all seven being won in the 1990s, and he was world No 1 for eight successive seasons. But the great champions feel it most when vulnerability takes over.“It started about 12 years before the end,” Hendry says of his slow decline. “Of course it’s psychological and, when you strike a cue ball, you’re supposed to accelerate through the ball. But as you tighten up you end up decelerating. By 2012 my game was shot. You’re sitting on your chair watching players leagues below you play shots you can’t. That destroyed me.”In his new book, which provides graphic insight into this implosion, Hendry accepts that people compare his condition to a golfer’s ‘yips’. He scrunches up his face. “That trivialises it. I hate the word because it’s much more than that.”It resulted in humiliation for Hendry. He had to qualify for his final world championship by playing at the Institute of Sport in Sheffield instead of his beloved Crucible. “It felt degrading. That’s no disrespect to other players but I had owned the Crucible for a decade with seven wins and two finals.” Support The Guardian I loved being the best player in the world. I’ve heard Mark Selby say it’s hard being the target man but I loved it He lost 13-2 to Maguire and retired but Hendry had suffered worse moments. “The lowest was losing [to Robert Milkins] in China. It was such an embarrassment. In China they called me the emperor of snooker but I kept losing in the first round. I broke down. It’s the only time I’ve cried from losing. Milkins is a journeyman, someone you should never lose to.”Hendry does not mean to sound cruel towards Milkins – but he is intent on describing, with crushing honesty, how far he fell. “I loved being the best player in the world. There was no pressure staying there. I’ve heard [current World No 1] Mark Selby say: ‘It’s hard being the target man.’ I loved it.”He admired the way in which Woods, at his most swaggering, rarely looked surprised or elated when winning. “I really empathise with that. When you get a trophy why go jumping and crying? Winning’s a great feeling but everything else is an anticlimax. I really had to force a smile because winning was my job.” Share on Facebook Topics … we have a small favour to ask.

Share via Email Share on LinkedIn Snooker Flying to China 15 times a year, to promote Chinese pool, and working as a UK snooker pundit, Hendry admits that, “compared to the 1990s life now is dull. Back then you were the world’s best player. Nothing could touch you. I’ve not got a bad life now but I have days where I think: ‘What is there to look forward to? What’s the buzz?’”He takes solace in his belief that, as arguably the greatest snooker player in history, his world championship record of victories remains safe. “I can’t see anyone beating it. O’Sullivan’s got five. He can do it if he keeps playing. But there are four others playing at that level. At his absolute best Ronnie wins. But he’s getting to that age where he’s not doing it often. He’ll talk all sorts of bullshit, saying he doesn’t care about the record. But deep down he wants to beat me while, of course, I want to hold on to the record.”Hendry sounds, briefly, like a perennial winner again. But he is too likeable now not to give in to honesty as, considering his involvement in a new senior circuit, he admits his game is still ruined. “I’ve played it a few times and in practice I’m fine because no one’s watching. But once it starts I’m totally embarrassed by my shots. It’s horrible.”The 49-year-old former world champion laughs ruefully. He then shakes his head when asked if he will ever free himself of these demons. “There’re probably people out there who think they can cure me but it’s a mental thing. At exhibitions I have a couple of drinks before I play to relax. It works sometimes but that’s not a way out. I have to live with it now.”Stephen Hendry’s Me and the Table is available from guardianbookshop.com Play Video Stephen Hendry after beating Jimmy White 18-17 to win his fourth world crown in 1994. ‘I really had to force a smile because winning was my job.’ Photograph: Michael Cooper/Getty Images Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Chelsea keen to keep Hudson-Odoi

Biometric Data for NIDS Will Reduce Identity Theft

first_img Chief Technical Director for the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Division, Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Jacqueline Lynch-Stewart, says biometric data compiled under the National Identification System (NIDS) will assist in reducing incidents of identity theft.Biometrics refer to identification based on the analysis of unique physical characteristics.With the increased incidents of identity theft, Mrs. Lynch-Stewart said this information is essential in safeguarding citizens from having their personal information stolen.“Biometrics are what will protect everyone. Somebody can look like you and can have a similar name; in fact you can have a twin, but it’s the biometrics that make sure that you are really who you say you are. And, that is what is going to protect you when you have your card,” she said.Mrs. Lynch-Stewart was speaking at a NIDS public forum at Webster Memorial United Church, in St. Andrew on Thursday, March 1.The Director said only four biometric data are to be submitted under the NIDS – facial image, fingerprints (10), eye colour and signature.For persons who do not have hands, an iris scan will be required. “We anticipate a small percentage of our population will fall into that category; for example, persons who work in an environment where their fingerprints have been eroded (persons using chemicals and farmers),” she explained.Other data that can be volunteered are blood type, employment status, race, religion, education, profession or occupation.This voluntary information will be submitted to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) and the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) for statistical purposes only.“We are asking you to volunteer this information. It is for statistical purposes only. But if you don’t want to give us, you don’t have to. We are not taking DNA, bank account information, criminal record, political or sexual orientation,” the Director pointed out.The NIDS, which is scheduled for implementation in 2019, will provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans.Under the system, each citizen will be provided with a randomised nine-digit National Identification Number (NIN), which they will have for life. NIDS will be the first national identification system rolled out in the Caribbean.Implementation of the NIDS is supported by the National Identification and Registration Bill, which was passed in both Houses of Parliament in November.The Government intends to put the NIDS infrastructure and systems in place over the next 12 months, beginning with a pilot project.This is expected to be followed by the national roll-out in September 2019, over a three to four-year period.The layered roll-out and management of the NIDS will be handled by a new agency, the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), which will replace the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and provide more enhanced services. “Biometrics are what will protect everyone. Somebody can look like you and can have a similar name; in fact you can have a twin, but it’s the biometrics that make sure that you are really who you say you are.

Georgia UNICEF immunizing 2500 children in Pankisi Gorge against measles

Working with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), UNICEF is rushing in vaccines and a mobile team to immunize more than 1,700 Georgian children and 840 Chechen refugee children up to the age of 15 by Friday. An estimated 6,000 refugees from the Russian republic of Chechnya live with host families in the Pankisi Gorge, where lawlessness, including kidnapping and gunrunning, undermine scheduled vaccinations, UNICEF said. The agency’s Representative in Georgia, Ould Cheikh Ahmed Ismail, pledged to reach children who have “fallen through the routine immunization net.” In addition to providing 3,000 doses of measles vaccine, UNICEF and USAID are providing special syringes to ensure the safety of every single shot, and leaflets in both Georgian and Russian on the importance of immunization. Children will also receive Vitamin A capsules to reduce their vulnerability to measles, respiratory infections and diarrhoeal disease. Each year 777,000 children die of measles because they did not receive the vaccination, according to UNICEF. The contagious infection can be complicated by diarrhoea, ear infections, pneumonia or encephalitis. Children who survive may be afflicted with lifelong disabilities, including brain damage, blindness and deafness. read more

UN to provide support for independent commission on AIDS in Asia and

The United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has announced that it will provide logistical support to a new body that will study the spread and impact of the virus and the disease in Asia and the Pacific with a view to mobilizing an adequate response for the region, where over 8 million people live with HIV.Launched on Saturday in New Delhi, the independent Commission on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific, consists of 10 leading economists, scientists, civil society representatives and policy-makers from across the region.Over a period of 18 months, the Commission will conduct an objective analysis of the impact and developmental consequences of the AIDS epidemic in the region, and what this might mean to the socio-economic environment in the medium and long term, the agency said.At the end of 2005, there were an estimated 8.3 million persons living with HIV in Asia and the Pacific and the numbers are growing rapidly. Over half a million people died of AIDS last year alone, according to UNAIDS, which will provide the Commission with logistical support in its initial months and has contributed the funding towards its work. The Commission is expected to study the impact of AIDS on human resources, labor productivity, poverty reduction, social stability and household savings. It will also examine the spread of the virus in coming years, and how it could be reduced by raising national and international efforts.The Commission’s findings will be summarized in a report with recommendations for a set of measures designed to mobilize leaders to adequately respond to the epidemic in the region.“We are confident this Commission will make a real difference and move the agenda forward for the Asia-Pacific region response to HIV and AIDS,” said Commission Secretary JVR Prasada Rao, who is the Director of the UNAIDS Regional Support Team for Asia and the Pacific. read more

Shareholders have until Friday to accept the deal.“We are pleased that the Board of COS is supporting our offer,” said CEO Steve Williams.“We believe that, working with the operator, we can drive real improvements in Syncrude’s performance with a larger ownership interest, creating value for our shareholders.”Follow @LaurenKrugel on Twitter Oilsands giant Suncor posts $2-billion net loss during fourth quarter read more

Ohio State softball bounces back from weekend sweep topples Ohio in doubleheader

Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorIts bats might have taken awhile to warm up Tuesday evening, but the Ohio State softball team was still able to sweep its neighbors to the southeast, the Ohio Bobcats, with 11 runs in the nonconference doubleheader. The Buckeyes (27-11-1, 9-4-1), hungry to redeem themselves from a losing weekend at Michigan, dominated Ohio (25-18), which sits in fifth in the Mid-American Conference’s East division.OSU sophomore Taylor White had three hits throughout the doubleheader, all of which were for extra bases. Junior infielder Anna Kirk went 3-for-4 in the second game after falling into an 0-for-5 slump last weekend.Game 1Tuesday evening’s first matchup ended up being a 1-0 pitching contest decided by a single play of small ball. Both OSU junior Shelby Hursh and Ohio redshirt junior Savannah Jo Dorsey threw complete games, and Hursh struck out six batters while only recording two walks.The game remained scoreless until the top of the sixth, when sophomore Ashley Goodwin laid down a squeeze bunt to give the Buckeyes the go-ahead run.After OSU stranded a pair of runners in the first inning, Hursh sent the top of the lineup back to the dugout in order. In the preceding inning, Dorsey, who struck out eight, echoed with three easy outs.Freshman Emily Clark and White led the Buckeyes once again with a double each, but Clark’s leadoff two-bagger in the top of the fourth could not produce a string of hits. The Bobcats briefly threatened in the bottom of the inning in a two-out, bases-loaded situation, but junior Casie Hutchinson popped out to OSU catcher Cammi Prantl.White’s double gave OSU a chance to score in the sixth, and after she advanced to third, Goodwin’s bunt brought her home. Freshman Becca Gavin shut down Ohio second baseman Taylor Saxton with her second putout to second base of the day, and the quick final three outs in the seventh gave the Buckeyes a return to the win column.Game 2In the second game of the twinbill and 70th all-time matchup between the teams, the Buckeyes quickly turned on their previously quiet bats to cruise to a 10-3 win.White added her fourth homer in the top of the fifth, which was also her third hit of the day, and sent the Buckeyes back to Columbus with a midweek sweep. OSU freshman Morgan Ray and junior Lena Springer teamed up in the circle to keep the Bobcats at three runs through the final five innings.White doubled for the second time of the day and eighth time of the year in the top of the first, bringing in two runs.Redshirt senior shortstop Maddy McIntyre jumped on the chance to make a clutch play of her own with an RBI single in the second inning. OSU bumped its lead to four with a steal of home, but Ohio responded with a two-out, RBI single from freshman Morgan Geno.The Bobcats took advantage of another two-out situation on a pair of singles in the third inning, bringing in two runs to tighten the game to a 4-3 contest. Ohio nearly scored in the bottom of the fourth, but Kirk charged a bunt from third to end the inning.White’s home run was the only noise OSU made in the fifth inning, thanks to Dorsey’s relieving effort after sophomore Danielle Stiene headed to the bullpen. Dorsey struck out six before freshman Jamie Wren stepped into the circle for the first time in her collegiate career. In the bottom of the inning, Prantl made a diving catch in left field to leave the Bobcats with another scoreless inning.Kirk led off the sixth inning with a line drive to right field, a stolen base and a trip home on McIntyre’s deep RBI single. Prantl stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded to slam a two-run double off of the outfield wall, which prompted the third pitching change for the Bobcats. Stiene reentered the game but gave up two more runs after Clark’s single found the gap. In the bottom of the sixth, Ohio went down in order on only five pitches, giving it one last chance to close in on the Buckeyes, who also went down in order in the final inning.Gavin caught her third runner at second base to end the day, sending OSU back to Columbus with its 26th and 27th wins.Coming upOSU is scheduled to return to Big Ten play from Friday to Sunday with a three-game series against Purdue. Friday’s game is slated to begin at 6 p.m. at Buckeye Field. read more

Catchup Wednesday 3 midweek longreads

first_imgIT’S MIDWAY THROUGH the week and you want to get up to speed on the latest news topics and catch up on opinions and insights.We’re here to help you do just that, with our three midweek longreads:1. The Tsar BombaOn 30 October, 1961, the Soviet Union detonated the world’s largest nuclear weapon: a 27-ton hydrogen bomb. Katherine Harrison and Matthew Hughes take a look at the Soviet’s history of nuclear testing, and how it contrasted with the American approach.History Today, approximately 11 minutes reading time, 2200 words During the winter of 1954-55, while the Americans were crowning Vegas showgirls as atomic beauty queens, some 10,000 Soviet soldiers began construction on the nuclear testing facilities on Novaya Zemlya. The soldiers lived in tents on the tundra and, in the face of polar bears and freezing 40-knot Arctic winds, they built the USSR’s Northern Test Site, a feat of construction that has been compared to the building of the Great Wall of China. 2. Hurricane Sandy, one year onIn October 2012, Hurricane Sandy blasted through the north-east of the USA. One of the-hardest hit of the New York boroughs was Staten Island, and Adam Gabbatt visited to find out how recovery is going. He meets families who stayed, people who lost everything, and finds out what it was like being trapped during the storm.The Guardian, approximately 8 minutes reading time, 1748 words We were in the room about to eat dinner and we hear the back door open,” April remembered. “Then we see the water coming in and I didn’t know what was happening. [Chiaramonte] went to close the backdoor and then I hear water: ‘Glug, glug, glug’.” Within minutes the water was chest high and still rising. “The refrigerator floating. That’s the one thing I remember seeing,” Chiaramonte said.3. How to fix Ireland’s obesity problemNutritional consultant and chef Dorcas Barry was inspired by a food festival, Foodcamp, to discuss what can be done about Ireland’s obesity problem. At Foodcamp, the participants were asked what they would do if they were the health minister and had an unlimited budget – here is her answer:Opinion and Insight, approximately 4 minutes reading time, 873 wordsWe know that educating about food will only ever bring us some of the way, but it’s the experience of delicious, healthy food that will offer the opportunity to make a real difference in positive eating habits. How amazing and progressive would it be if Irish hospitals showed this example and pioneered this experience, creating centres of excellence in every area of hospital life?Want some more longreads?

Mother of allergyshock victim to politicians Emmas death was so avoidable

first_imgTHE MOTHER OF a 14-year-old who died from an allergic reaction as she had no access to an Epipen has told an Oireachtas committee of the need for legislatory change to prevent similar avoidable deaths in future.Epinephrine or adrenaline auto-injectors, commonly known by the brand name of Epipen, are used in cases of anaphylactic shock.When Caroline Sloan’s daughter, Emma, suffered a fatal allergic reaction in Dublin city centre after accidentally eating satay sauce, her mother was unable get an Epipen from a chemist as it was not for use on her.“Emma’s death was so avoidable,” she told the committee.“Had we had the correct information and education on her allergy, and access to an epipen, she would be with us today.”“She was so looking forward to Christmas,” she said, “All her presents are still wrapped in their boxes in a press.”“I only ever spent one Christmas with all three of my children.”She has since perused a campaign to have epipens “in every first aid box”, noting that very little training is required to use them, and for people with allergies to carry ID or bracelets for use in the event of seizure.She today voiced this at the Oireachtas Committee on Health and Committee. From left to right – Caroline Sloan, junior counsel Yvonne Moynihan, and Dr Michael Byrne Source: Oireachtas.ieJunior Counsel Yvonne Moynihan told the committee that an important part of any legislation would be the scope of a liability to allow anyone “acting in good faith” to administer an Epipen without fear of any legal repercussions.She outlined a case in the United States where a child died as a result of an allergic reaction after a fellow student’s Epipen was not used on her.Employees in the school were prohibited from using an epipen prescribed for one student on another. The child was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead, the New York Times reports.Ireland could become a “world leader” in the area of widespread availability of Epipens, she said, if comprehensive legislation was introduced.The situation has been addressed in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom to varying degrees.She noted that it should include a requirement for schools, restaurants, and other establishments to stock an epipen, with mandatory health plans training for staff put in place. File photo of an epinephrine auto-injector. Source: Vu What When via Flickr/Creative CommonsPhysicians warned that there is a lack of awareness, and lack of thorough diagnosis, of severe allergies.Professor Jonathan Hourihane from the Paediatrics & Child Health department in Cork University Hospital, who specialises in paediatric food allergy and anaphylaxis, highlighted the lack of allergy centres in Ireland, noting long waiting lists at his own Department.This shortage of allergists in Ireland was described as ‘hardly surprising’ by Senator John Crowne – “Ireland is bottom of the league table for everything, every specialist you care to mention”.Hourihane said that many families he has met has said they feel like they are “followed around by grim reaper”.[They fear] that the reaper will take their child if they make the tinniest mistake with their food.“Another unfortunate death is inevitable,” he warned.Caroline Sloan had told the committee that “if Emma had been referred to a specialist and been given the results of her tests and an allergy management plan, she would be alive today”. She also noted although it was known that her daughter had a peanut allergy, it was not known that it could be fatal.Hourihane also referenced existing legislation in the United States, which he said was brought in by President Barack Obama due to his own experience with his daughter’s nut allergy, and that when the family visited Dalkey in 2011 that precautions were put in place “that we don’t think are worthy for other children.”Dr Michael Byrne from UCC’s Student Health Department said that many do not like to disclose their allergies.“In four years, despite regularly prompting and encouraging self declaration and origination,” he said,I haven’t had a single student who came forward of an existing food allergy so that I could compile a risk assessment.Byrne cited a fear of ‘not wanting to stand out in any way’.Some committee members said potential legislation to allow for the widespread availability of Epipens should be raised with the Minister for Health as a matter of urgency, with Senator Crowne noting that it would be a very straight-forward process.Read: Tragic death inspires push to get lifesaving EpiPens in public places >last_img read more

Rupert Everett The UK and Ireland are probably the two best places

first_img Image: Matt Crossick http://jrnl.ie/4076964 But sexuality is still this extraordinary issue for people and that is the thing that doesn’t still go away because even if there is a thaw on the iceberg slightly in showbusiness, there doesn’t seem to be one in sport, there has been one in politics I suppose but it’s a weird thing. It still seems to be a very blocking issue. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article It wasn’t an enjoyable shoot, per se. “It was very stressful in a way because I wouldn’t say that I enjoyed a minute of it,” says Everett. “‘Enjoyed’ is the wrong word, because enjoyment implies relaxation and sitting back and enjoying something, there was never that. I was always trying to move the thing on to manage to make our days and always trying to concentrate on doing so many things, pulling them all together.”Being director and star meant that Everett was pulled in different directions, particularly when the shoots were very tight. The movie was filmed on location in a number of European locations: Bavaria, Brussels, Wallonia and Naples, with Everett determined to bring to life Wilde’s 19th century bohemian lifestyle.They had just one week to shoot in Naples (where Wilde tried to rebuild his relationship with Bosie), and had quite a challenge finding the sets in Belgium and Germany. They discovered a castle in Bavaria where they were able to shoot multiple locations – the prison, bedroom and even a shanty street. The Paris scenes were shot in Brussels and Wallonia, and they wrapped the shoot in Normandy, where they were able to shoot in the Hotel des Roches where Wilde stayed.But for all its stress, it was a shoot that had a lot of love in it.“We kept saying to each other, me and the few people that started together, we said we must try and have fun and we kept reminding ourselves of that as we were screaming at each other. It’s difficult to have fun on a thing like that because if you for me because there were so many things I had to keep control of and it just wasn’t that easy,” says Everett. Though not easy, it was clearly a passion project that was worth it.The Happy Prince is in cinemas on Friday 22 June.  35 Comments A view inside Oscar Wilde’s cell, C2.2, at Reading Gaol Source: PA Archive/PA Images“Seeing his family again, seeing his children, all those things he did which are so incredible. And then ending up on the streets, shuffling around Paris with holes in his shoes, toothless, smelling of sweat and piss… It’s a marvellous story of a rake’s progress or riches to rags.”He doesn’t shy away from showing that side to Wilde in the film – the pressure that was put on him and the physical and mental effects it had.Everett is one of the few gay actors who has been open about his sexuality for decades, and he believes that it may have cost him roles. The price of being honest can be too high for some people in Hollywood, never mind elsewhere around the world. Everett has long mixed with fascinating people – Julia Roberts, Madonna – and written two memoirs about his time in the spotlight.He’s lived his life in the public view, and seeing how men like Wilde were treated appears to only fuel his desire to ensure he shines a light on the way we treat people who are LGBTQIA.As the past is not so far away, TheJournal.ie asks Everett if it’s tempting for us to look back now and think “aren’t we so great compared to the 19th century” when it comes to how we treat minorities. Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTube“We’re worse in many parts of the world and Oscar Wilde’s treatment is better than someone probably in Uganda, or Jamaica, or in Russia, or in China, or in India or in probably three quarters of the world,” is Everett’s response. “In our world I think things have changed a lot for the better for the most part and I think the UK and Ireland are probably the two best places in the world to be gay. Rupert Everett: ‘The UK and Ireland are probably the two best places in the world to be gay’ The actor has directed and written a new film about Oscar Wilde. The great vagabond Rupert Everett with one of his memoirs in 2006 Source: SuzanWhat drew Everett to Wilde? “I think what I love about him in the story is that for me in terms of literature in the 19th century, which is my favourite era, along with [Paul] Verlaine he is the last great vagabond of the 19th century,” he says. “This fall from stardom which was just extraordinary and shocked the whole world. Really, everybody in the world knew about it, because he was one of the first famous people who were famous for being famous on top of everything else.”Wilde was a famous writer, but he was also famous for his character, “for the way he lit up rooms and kept the whole Café Royal in thrall”.But was it difficult to play his hero during the toughest time of his life? “I don’t think it is in a way because one’s been through so much of writing the story and plotting the scenes – I mean obviously as an actor, you get into the role,” says Everett. “But outside of that, I was just concentrating on getting each scene done and moving on to the next. We were so short of time making the film that I couldn’t make one mistake because if I didn’t manage to do a scene then it would never be shot, because we never had a contingency plan to do something at another date.It is a very sad story but you don’t really think of it like that when you’re making it in a way. Image: Matt Crossick Monday 18 Jun 2018, 7:30 PM Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeIT’S A ROLE that Rupert Everett was born to play: Oscar Wilde.The British actor’s obsession with the Irish author is long known (he played him in a one-man play The Judas Kiss in 2012), but it’s come full circle with the release of The Happy Prince, a film about Wilde’s final years, which is written, directed by and stars Everett.When we meet during Everett’s extensive press trip for the film, the actor is dressed down in a black hoodie (well, it’s by Helmut Lang, so an upmarket hoodie) and sporting a full beard. He looks refreshed, the opposite to Wilde in The Happy Prince, who is visibly haunted by what he’s been through. He’s bloated and tired, but he still retains his trademark wit.The film – which stars Everett’s friends Colin Firth and Emily Watson – was 11 years in the making, so to have it finally on the big screen “feels amazing”, says Everett. “Particularly bringing the film here to Dublin, this feels like the end of the road, not the end of the road in a bad way for me, but the thrill to be able to bring a story about Oscar Wilde to Dublin, to Ireland, and to be here now, next to where he lived [on Merrion Square], is very exciting for me.”HumiliationIn the film we meet Wilde while he’s on his deathbed, as he reflects on a fascinating – though truncated – life.He died aged just 46, in November 1900, broken by a tough trial over his homosexuality. The author and playwright was punished for being himself, and this punishment left an indelible mark on him.“His humiliation in the Old Bailey was such a huge thing, and his imprisonment with hard labour and then his exile in the north of France and then the fact he went back to the boyfriend [Bosie] who he said he’d never talk to again in his life was… just the most extraordinary story. And then once he’d done that that blew every single thing he might have achieved afterwards out of the water,” says Everett.

Elmo Crashes Game of Thrones Scene in Cute Sesame Street Crossover

first_imgStay on target Respect is coming: Elmo tried to bring peace to Westeros in a recent Game of Thrones and Sesame Street mashup and the furry friend might have repaired a major sibling conflict.On Thursday, the Sesame Street character “interrupted” a conversation between Cersei Lannister and Tyrion Lannister, who were in a disagreement over kingdom troubles. While they’re trying to talk it out, Elmo, in full armor, shows up and asks the pair to respect each other.“You can’t ignore me forever,” Tyrion Lannister tells Cersei Lannister in the clip. “I only want what’s best for Westeros.”Cersei Lannister chimes in, “And, I only want for you to not get what you want.” (Sigh.)Cue in Elmo, who makes a lot of noise with his armor and says, “Excuse Elmo!” and introduces himself to the siblings.“Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other. When Elmo has a problem with his friends, like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset,” Elmo says in the video. “Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say. ”Tyrion Lannister, who seems to be on board, says, “If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger. I’m willing to learn and listen if you are.”Cersei Lannister seems to not be as delighted with little Elmo, and she needs a moment to get it together. Finally, she dryly replies, “I can try.”Things get a bit awkward when Elmo can’t toast to the occasion, but regardless, the furry red monster maybe patched things up between the two siblings.More on Geek.com:‘Game of Thrones’ Writer: It was ‘Tough’ to Reveal Jon Snow’s True HeritageFirst Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 2 PhotosKit Harington: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Critics Can ‘Go F*ck Themselves’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… last_img read more

Klopp The Title would be keenly contested

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes this season’s title race would be too close to call regarding the current form of top teams.Klopp shared his thoughts in the post-match interview of the Cardiff game where they emerged 4-1 winners to climb to the top.“What makes the difference is the number of points because the difference between 23 and 26 feels like 20 points.“It’s really important to stay on track. We will all meet each other, it’s unbelievable that five or six clubs have such a big number of points but it only makes it even more intense.“It’s good for the people and the supporters of different clubs. Klopp made this known according to 101greatgoals.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“Today it was clear that if we win it would be like that. We won, but for us it’s just the next step, that’s cool. Now we have time to recover.“It’s the first time for a lot of the boys that they don’t play in three days’ time. We will use the time to recover then prepare the Arsenal game, which will be another nice challenge.“We had very good moments and periods where we could have done better.“But we played on Wednesday and we had to create and create and create.
