AFTV presenter Robbie Lyle and DT respond to furious Arsenal protesters

first_imgArsenal Fan TV host Robbie Lyle has responded to the angry Gunners fans who protested his YouTube channel following the 0-0 stalemate with Everton on Saturday afternoon.Lyle required a police escort out of Goodison Park after Gunners vented their discontent with the channel after the dreary encounter at Goodison Park. Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti targets appointed A regular guest of the channel, DT, also hit out at the protesting fans, claiming they need to ‘reevaluate’ what they’re doing.DT said: “In regards to those fans, I’d like to say thank you to those fans who sung that song, I sung with them!“People will say about us being toxic but when you come to a football match and all you can do is sing about us then you need to reevaluate your situation.“‘It’s amazing what drugs can do at 6am in the morning.” LATEST The media outlet, famous for its public criticism of the team, has been held responsible by many for creating a toxic atmosphere at the club.However, Lyle has responded by questioning the fans’ decision to focus their attention on his station rather than bring about positivity following Mikel Arteta’s appointment as manager.In the latest YouTube clip posted by AFTV, he said: “Merry Christmas to those guys who wasted their time. You know what there’s about ten or 15 of them who have been piping up from inside the ground, trying to get songs going. I just don’t understand it.“[Mikel] Arteta’s in the stands. We’re on the verge of a new era.

Game makes saving energy cool

A web browser is all that’s needed for the computer. On phones, users must first install the MXit instant messaging and chat application – although given MXit’s popularity among South African teenagers, chances are good they will have it already.MXit was developed in South Africa and is now used in over 120 countries around the world. It currently has over 14-million users, most of them in South Africa. With 25 000 users signing up every day, MXit is one of the largest mobile communities in the world.MXit is keen to demonstrate its usefulness as more than just a chat room and messaging service. The company has come in for some criticism especially with regard to the safety of its young users, but has recently made a number of improvements, such as implementing stricter rules with regard to personal behaviour, profanity filers and moderation in chat rooms, and a facility that enables users to ban others they consider troublesome.MXit also actively engages with schoolchildren to raise their awareness of staying safe online.Media analyst Arthur Goldstuck applauded the Save It! idea, but added the department was missing out on a large portion of its target audience because primary schoolchildren do not use MXit as extensively as their high school fellows.“The initiative is visionary in that it tries to talk to children where they are, rather than trying to attract them to a government portal, which would seem an alien environment to them,” Goldstuck said.Superhero teamIn the game children play as one of three superheroes – Captain Watt and his trusty sidekicks Dyna-Mo and Miss X-Static – to fight against the evil Energy Guzzler, the monster that is using all the electricity in their homes. Their mission is to save as much electricity as they can in the home while outmanoeuvring the wasteful Guzzler, who is bent on undoing the hard work.After each action, for example, switching off a light, players get a pop-up explanation of the benefit to the environment and the electricity bill. In this way the eco-friendly message is reinforced. At the end of the game they can submit their score via e-mail and compare themselves with other players.Save It! is available as a free download through MXit Tradepost, the application’s e-commerce section. Users can also play online for free on the national energy efficiency campaign’s website.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Retailers with a Crisis Management Plan Can Effectively Manage Disruption

first_imgThe political candidates currently vying for the US Presidency seem to disagree about the level of crime in the nation. Regardless of the actual statistics, however, the fact remains that crises do exist. Danger is, at times, inevitable. And companies that institute a crisis management plan – instead of just hoping for the best – are the ones that are truly ready for the future.Contributing Writer Garett Seivold explores the idea of what it takes to be ready in a feature article in the September-October 2016 issue of LP Magazine. Seivold looks closely at crisis-prepared retail organizations, such as Walgreens and 7-Eleven, to see what strategies are working best. Strong leadership and informed employees are must, says Seivold. From the article:“Crisis response requires solid leadership, but it also requires personnel who are willing to be led. And that depends on whether a company has spent time before a major disaster providing crisis information, training, drilling, and establishing trust. Workers need to sense that the company is ready to handle the event and has their interests at heart, which is not something that a retailer can build once the storm is already on the radar.”The article goes on to share a comprehensive list of actions that can help a retailer prepare for disaster. Both 7-Eleven and Walgreens point to lessons learned during past events, as well as the ways in which technology can make crisis teams more effective. Check out “Crisis Management: What Walgreens, 7-Eleven, and Other Crisis-Prepared Retailers Have in Common” to read the full article and evaluate how your organization might do in the event of a disaster.- Sponsor – You can also visit the Table of Contents for the September-October 2016 issue or register for a free subscription to the magazine.

Company Nabbed in Sting With Bogus Study Stops Reviewing Trials

first_imgA company that gave ethics approval to a fake clinical trial has agreed to stop reviewing FDA-approved studies.  All studies of FDA-approved drugs and devices have to be approved by an institutional review board (IRB), a panel of experts that is supposed to make sure the people who volunteer for the study are protected. The company, Coast IRB in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is an example of a for-profit IRB. Last month, the federal Government Accountability Office and a congressional committee revealed that Coast IRB had approved a fake study of a fictitious FDA-approved device. As part of an agreement with the FDA, up to 300 or so ongoing trials that the company had approved will stop enrolling new patients while the company improves its practices.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

Astrophysicists, Molecular Biologists, and a Mathematician Share Shaw Prizes

first_imgStellar work. Work on accretion disks, such as this artist’s conception of a disk around the binary star system WZ Sge, was one of the areas recognized by this year’s Shaw prizes. Work on circadian rhythms, astrophysical accretion disks, and statistics have earned a half dozen scientists Shaw prizes for 2013. Jeffrey Hall of the University of Maine, Orono; Michael Rosbash of Brandeis University; and Michael Young of Rockefeller University unraveled the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms in a series of experiments using mutant fruit flies; and the same fundamental processes proved to be at work in other organisms, including humans. The trio will share the Shaw Prize in life science and medicine. Steven Balbus of the University of Oxford and John Hawley of the University of Virginia are sharing the astronomy award for developing the concept of magnetorotational instability, which describes the turbulence of the accretion disks that surround astrophysical objects such as forming stars and supermassive black holes. And Stanford University’s David Donoho’s new algorithms for dealing with noisy data that underpin many statistical and signal processing applications earned the mathematical sciences award.

After 0-1 loss to Oman, India’s FIFA World Cup hopes almost over

first_imgFIFA World Cup Qualifier: Super sub Seiminlen Doungel saves India Sunil Chhetri is irreplaceable, says Igor Stimac Even the runners-up team is not guaranteed an automatic spot for the third round of the qualifiers. The Indian team is, however, still in the hunt for a third round berth for the 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers. This campaign is also a joint qualifying round for the 2023 Asian Cup and the third-placed teams and the best four fourth placed teams from the eight groups automatically get a spot in the third round of the qualifiers of the continental championships. Earlier, head coach Igor Stimac made three changes to his side that drew Afghanistan 1-1 in Dushanbe on November 14 with Manvir Singh, Farukh Choudhary and Nishu Kumar coming in for Pritam Kotal, Mandar Rao Desai and Sahal Abdul Samad. India were, however, lucky not to have conceded a goal in the seventh minute when Mohsin Al Ghassani shot over the bar from the penalty spot. Ghassani himself earned the spot kick after a clumsy challenge inside the Indian box by Rahul Bheke who was beaten on pace by Omani striker. Ghassani later made amends of his mistake as he fired home in the 33rd minute past Indian goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu after a beautiful defence-splitting through pass by Mohsin Johar Al Khaldi. Oman had more of the ball possession in the first half but they had few clear chances. Ahmed Al Kaabi got a free header in the 27th minute but sent the ball over the bar from a corner kick. India had few raids at the opposition goal but could not pose any threat to the Omani goalkeeper.

Mohsin Al Ghassani scored the all-important goal in the 33rd minute at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex Stadium as Oman beat India for the second time in the campaign. Oman had defeated India 2-1 in the first leg in September in Guwahati.  With just three points from five matches, India still remain at fourth spot in the Group E table, headed by Asian champions Qatar who have 13 points from five matches. Oman are at second spot with 12 points. With a nine point gap with the second-place team (Oman) in the group table, India are almost out of reckoning for a third round berth. They have only three more matches—maximum nine points—left to play in this second round of the qualifiers.Related Newslast_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Chelsea injuries Thibaut Courtois is a doubt for Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury, he is joined by Andreas Christensen who has muscular fatigue.  David Luiz is out for three more weeks, while Ross Barkley is training with the under-23s as he aims to return to first team action after a spate of injuries. Tiemoue Bakayoko started the game against Leicester City and he has returned, but Ethan Ampadu is out for the season after fracturing his ankle in the UEFA Youth League victory over Real Madrid. Danny Drinkwater is another doubt, having not appeared since he started against Manchester City, at the beginning of March.Chelsea suspensions Chelsea currently have no players suspended. Spain striker Alvaro Morata is, however, two yellow cards away from a two-match ban after accumulating eight bookings.Chelsea potential starting line-up Alvaro Morata got his first goal of 2018 against Leicester City, after a two-and-a-half month goal drought, but he is likely to start against Tottenham on Sunday. Willian and Eden Hazard are undroppable, while Willy Caballero will start, if Courtois remains out injured. Gary Cahill has lost his place in the starting line up to Antonio Rudiger, as Chelsea have established their 3-4-3 formation as their primary one again in recent weeks.Conte will go for his full strength line up in what is one of his side’s most important games of the season.

Spurs’ 25 games at Stamford Bridge without winning in the Premier League is the most that one team has played on one ground without a single victory in the competition. Tottenham have won more points in Premier League London derbies this season than any other side (13 – W4 D1 L2). The Blues are looking to do their first league double over Tottenham since the 2005-06 season. Chelsea are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since December – they’re winless in their last four against fellow ‘big six’ sides (D2 L2), although all of those have been away from home.
