20 days agoKrylia Sovetov chief Shashkov ‘happy’ for Sobolev over Man Utd interest

first_imgKrylia Sovetov chief Shashkov ‘happy’ for Sobolev over Man Utd interestby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveKrylia Sovetov general secretary Vitaly Shashkov is “happy” for Aleksandr Sobolev over interest from Manchester United.The young striker has taken the Russian Premier League by storm this season and has just earned a first call-up to the senior national team squad. Sobolev has been named as a replacement for Lokomotiv striker Fedor Smolov, who has withdrawn from selection due to health problems.The 22 year-old Sobolev wins his maiden call-up to the Russia squad on the back of an impressive 10 goals in 12 Premier League games. His double on the weekend in Krylia Sovetov’s 2-0 defeat of Sochi saw Sobolev leapfrog Eldor Shomurodov to become the league’s current leading goalscorer. Rostov forward Shomurodov sits on nine goals.Such form has seen Sobolev linked with Manchester United in the English press, with it stated the struggling Premier League giants have had scouts watch his exploits.The news has reached Krylia Sovetov, where Shashkov was quick to react when speaking with local outlet RBC. “Well, how can I confirm such things? This is the English press, there are no official approaches to the club. But if so, I’m happy for the guy,” said Shashkov.”The guy is growing, progressing, madly in love with football. The rest I can’t say anything, let’s not inflate.”It’s better not to comment on such things, I don’t want this to become a growing rumour.”- updated October 7 TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Yahoo! Sports Announces Major College Football News For 2018 Season

first_imgFootball's with South Carolina's logo on them.(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Fantasy football is one of the major factors in the sport becoming the most popular in the country. Unfortunately, college football fans haven’t had a great mainstream college fantasy football option to this point.It appears that that is changing this fall.This morning, Yahoo! Sports, which runs one of the most popular NFL fantasy football platforms in the country, announced that it is finally starting college fantasy football.Yahoo! college fantasy football will feature players from the Power Five leagues and Notre Dame.That gives players 65 full rosters to build teams from. More, on Yahoo!’s college fantasy game:Yahoo Sports College Fantasy Football will feature players from 65 teams. That’s all of the Power Five (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, SEC) teams plus Notre Dame.From there, your team will look very much like your normal NFL fantasy roster. It will feature 15 player slots, just like the default roster size for NFL fantasy football:1 QB2 RB2 WR1 TE1 FLEX (WR/RB/TE)1 K1 D/ST6 benchJust like with NFL fantasy, you can create or join a league that hosts between four and 20 players. You can choose from three different draft styles — standard, autodraft and offline. You can customize whether you want to play head-to-head or total points, and your commissioner can customize scoring. Default scoring in 2018 will include a half-point per reception. No Pro or Cash leagues will be available.The college fantasy football season is set to run from August 30, the true Week 1 of this season, until the November 24 games. The few games that fall in ‘Week 0’ before August 30, and then the conference title and bowl games are not included.We’re sure there are some Group of Five fans that want to draft some of the top players in those leagues. However, this is a great start, and will probably be really huge for Yahoo! this year.[Yahoo! Sports]last_img read more

I know what it is to have a player who’s injured. At the end of the day, when serious injuries happen, football becomes secondary.”Our thoughts are with Christion and his family.

Why The NCAA Is Punishing Missouri Worse Than North Carolina

They got hit harder in the Bush case because they didn’t cooperate. UNC had the good fortune of the NCAA trying to call something an extra benefit when it clearly didn’t fit the NCAA’s own definition of an extra benefit,” he tweeted.USC would disagree with this assessment.

World No.1 Simona Halep and her coach Darren Cahill part ways

first_img Next World No.1 Simona Halep and her coach Darren Cahill part waysSimona Halep’s coach Darren Cahill of Australia left her team due to “family reasons”.advertisement Reuters New DelhiJanuary 6, 2019UPDATED: January 6, 2019 22:05 IST Simona Halep will start the new season without a coach (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSimona Halep said coach Darren Cahill left her team due to “family reasons”Halep has worked with the former Australia Davis Cup captain since 2016Halep is gearing up for the Australian OpenSimona Halep will be without a coach for the first few months of the 2019 season after Australian Darren Cahill left her team due to “family reasons”, the world number one said on Sunday.Halep, who is gearing up for the Australian Open by playing in this week’s Sydney International, has worked with the former Australia Davis Cup captain since 2016 and said she would not replace him until at least the claycourt season.”The situation is that for the next three to four months, I don’t want to take the coach… I go with the flow and I see how it works,” French Open champion Halep told the WTA website.”He took the decision because of family and family always comes first. I wasn’t disappointed or upset, I fully understood. We have a very good relationship.”Cahill has a long track record as a coach, helping compatriot Lleyton Hewitt reach number one in the rankings as well as reviving the career of American Andre Agassi.”It’s tough… but I feel confident I can do my own things on court. I’m more responsible now on everything that I have to do. Maybe it’s a good thing, I will see,” Halep added.Meanwhile, Halep said she was pain-free following a back injury that cut short her 2018 season, but believes this week would be the real test of her fitness.Halep won her maiden Grand Slam at Roland Garros last year but was diagnosed with a herniated disk in October which ruled her out of the season-ending WTA Finals.advertisementThe Romanian retained her top ranking for a second straight year despite missing the Singapore tournament and said she was raring to go after a spell during recovery where she did not pick up a racquet.”The back was good for the off-season. I didn’t have pain and I trained 100 percent, I played some sets, some matches,” Halep said.”No pain, no stress, but you never know until the official matches, so I’m waiting for this week to see how I feel… I have no pressure, but I’m motivated to see how good I can be this year.”Six weeks I did nothing, just in the gym to do exercises every day for one hour. No tennis. It was a long time… it’s going to be a tough start because I have almost three months without official matches.”Top seed Halep, who has a bye into the Sydney second round, will face either Jelena Ostapenko or local hope Ashleigh Barty.Also Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Varun Chakarvarthy, Mahipal Lomror among 5 mystery spinners to watch out for in IPL 2019

first_img Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiMarch 18, 2019UPDATED: March 18, 2019 17:00 IST Varun Chakravarthy was sold to Kings XI Punjab for a whopping Rs 8.40 crore at the IPL 2019 Auction (TNPL Photo)HIGHLIGHTSKings XI Punjab have 2 mystery spinners in Varun Chakravarthy and Mujeeb Ur RahmanKKR will have Kuldeep Yadav as their main weapon in the spin department this seasonAnother name to watch out for will be Rajasthan Royals’ Mahipal LomrorThe Indian Premier League (IPL) has been the perfect platform for youngsters to showcase their skills and impress the global audience. In the last 11 years, the IPL has seen some quality players make a mark.With less than a week left for this year’s league to start, it will once again be interesting to see which players rise to the challenge against the best in the business.IANS takes a look at five mystery spinners who are expected to make a mark this season:VARUN CHAKRAVARTHYAll eyes will be on this mystery spinner as Kings XI Punjab bagged him in the auction in Jaipur for a whopping Rs 8.4 crore – 42 times his base price of Rs 20 lakh.Playing for Tamil Nadu, Varun bagged 22 wickets in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He has six variations in his kitty: off-break, leg-break, flipper, top-spinner, carrom ball and the googly.The 27-year-old shot into limelight in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2018, scalping nine wickets from 10 matches, with a decent economy rate of 4.7. Looking at his record, Varun is expected to give batsmen a difficult time.MUJEEB UR RAHMANApart from Varun, KXIP have another mystery spinner in Mujeeb ur Rahman. The Afghan spinner had a dream debut season in IPL 2018, bagging 14 wickets in the 11 matches he played. The right arm off-break bowler bowled with an average of 20.64 and an economy rate of just under seven.Rahman also bowls some unbelievable googlies and under the guidance of his skipper Ravichandran Ashwin, who is an experienced off-spinner himself, the Afghan bowler is expected to only get better with every outing.advertisementKULDEEP YADAVHe has been a part of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and the national team for a while, but reading Kuldeep Yadav is a difficult task even now.The chinaman bowler, retained by the Knights, was one of their best bowlers, picking 18 wickets from 16 games. But the management would want Kuldeep to keep things a little tighter as he was slightly expensive with an economy of 8.14.KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik will certainly expect the 24-year-old to replicate his show in this edition of the IPL, and alongwith Sunil Narine, Kuldeep is expected to forge a deadly combination.WASHINGTON SUNDARRoyal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be banking on young right-arm off-spinner Washington Sundar to play perfect second fiddle to India’s limited-overs leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.At 19, Sundar is presumed to be one of India’s next generation players. He had a good start to the league in 2017 and had scalped 8 wickets from 11 games, with a decent economy of 6.16.The Tamil Nadu boy however, faltered in the second season as he managed just four wickets from seven games in 2018 with a poor economy. Sundar will look to leave it behind and start afresh in this year’s league.RCB have shown faith in the youngster and picked him for Rs 3.20 crore in the auctions, and Sundar will surely look to perform to the expectations of the franchise.MAHIPAL LOMRORAnother name to watch out for will be Rajasthan Royals’ Mahipal Lomror.Little known in the cricketing world before now, Lomror gained recognition based on his performances in India’s Under-19 campaign during the World Cup in 2016. In the six games, Lomror scalped seven wickets with an impressive economy of 3.74.The 19-year-old didn’t get much chance to showcase his talent in IPL after featuring in just two games for the Royals last year.However, given his record, Lomror will definitely be a spinner to watch out for. With the players having little knowledge about Lomror, the young spinner can certainly use the surprise element to his advantage.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Women’s T20 Challenge good opportunity for youngsters: Mithali Raj

Indian women team captain Mithali Raj said the tournament is “step ahead” and it might lead to a league the next year.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service JaipurMay 5, 2019UPDATED: May 5, 2019 18:28 IST Indian women cricket team’s captain Mithali Raj. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMithali Raj said the Women’s T20 Challenge will give youngsters chance to play with the best in the worldSmriti Mandhana said the tournament will help in assessing players for the T20 World Cup next yearThe tournament will begin on Monday at Jaipur. The final will be played on May 11Terming it a ‘step ahead’, Mithali Raj feels the Women’s T20 Challenge will provide a platform to young cricketers to rub shoulders with the best in the business.Indian woman cricket team stars Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana will captain the three sides — Velocity, Supernovas and Trailblazers, respectively — in the T20 Challenge that begins here on Monday.Four matches will be played among the three teams at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium with Supernovas taking on Trailblazers in the tournament opener. Compared with last year’s lone exhibition match, the 2019 edition is a marked improvement. “It is a step ahead,” Mithali Raj said at the pre-tournament press conference.”It offers an opportunity for our young players in domestic cricket to interact with some of the best in the world. When you get at least two games, you can field several youngsters. Competing with overseas players could benefit them,” said Mithali Raj, the highest run-getter in women’s international cricket.The India captain hoped by the next year there would be a full-fledged league. “We must understand that to start something different, we need to start small. Last year, we had just one game and this year they have added one more team and it’s a one-leg tournament. Maybe by the next year we might have a league.”The 36-year-old batswoman said the onus was on players to do well and they must ensure that.”Currently, it’s like testing waters as we need to see how people reciprocate and how teams perform. It’s important for us to perform well to grab eyeballs and attract more people to watch our matches. That will, probably, encourage the BCCI or the franchises to come forward to start a proper league,” Mithali Raj said.advertisementOpener Mandhana, captain of Trailblazers and the No. 1 batswoman in the ICC Women’s ODI rankings, said it would give seniors chance to play with juniors and see what they had got to offer ahead of the T20 World Cup in February 2020.”It’s an ideal opportunity for seniors, like us, to play with younger players. With the T20 World Cup just 10 months away, we could assess which players would perform well under pressure,” Mandhana said.Dashing batswoman Harmanpreet lauded the selection of venue. “It has improved a lot since we last played here four-five years ago,” she said. “The wicket looks good for T20 cricket. We have seen teams making good scores in the IPL,” she said.The tournament will also see big names from around the world with players from England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Bangladesh taking part in it.The final is on May 11.Also Read | Overseas players keen on Women’s IPLAlso Read | Australian Claire Polosak becomes first woman to umpire men’s ODIsAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

With lavish feast & floral decks, colourful Onam for Keralites post-floods

first_img Press Trust of India ThiruvananthapuramSeptember 11, 2019UPDATED: September 11, 2019 15:07 IST Women celebrating Onam (Photo: PTI)Keralites on Wednesday celebrated their biggest and most-awaited harvest festival, Onam with traditional fervour and gaiety, shrugging off the frightening memories of horrendous floods that had washed awaytheir festival dreams last year.Tight security in the wake of a terror attack warning and incessant rains in some places did not dampen the overall festive mood and ecstatic spirit of the people.Special security arrangement was put in place at all major festival venues across the state based on a recent information received by the Army thatthere may be a terror attack in southern parts of the country.Though Onam has a Hindu myth behind it, it has assumed a secular dimension over the centuries and people, cutting across caste, class and religion, are taking part in the celebrations in unison.Wearing “onakkodi’ (new cloths), people decorated their homes with ‘pookkalam’ (floral decks) to welcome mythical king Mahabali, the righteousdemon king who is believed to visit his subjects on the auspicious ‘thiruvonam’ day of the Chingam month in the Malayalam calendar.Legend has it that the Devas (Gods), who were envious of Mahabali’s popularity, managed to get him pushed down to the netherworld with the support of Lord Vishnu.But he was allowed to return to Kerala on Thiruvonam day every year and Keralites celebrate Onam as the homecoming of the mythical king reviving the memories of his bygone reign known forpeace, prosperityand equality.Sumptuous feast, popularly known as ‘sadya’, was prepared in homes with a large number of traditional dishes and sweet delicacies serving on plantain leaves.advertisementSpecial ‘thiruvona sadya’ was offered at major temples including Sree Padmanabhas Swamy Temple here for devotees to mark the occasion.A host of traditional sports like ‘onapanthu’ and ‘thalapanthu’ (ball games), ‘vadamvali’ (tug of war), ‘uriyadi (breaking the swinging earthen pot) and ‘oonjalattam’ (playing on swings) followed the feast in many places especially in villages.Local clubs and residence associations have organised several such games and cultural programmes to entertain people and to make the festival a memorable occasion.As a rampaging monsoon had claimed over 400 lives and destroyed houses and livelihood of people with many housed in relief camps, festivities were the last thing to come up in the minds of Keralites last year.Though over hundred people had lost their lives and a large number of houses were destroyed or damaged, the state government has decided to go ahead with its Onam celebrations this year as it would help people overcome the traumatic experience and focus on putting their lives back on track.PresidentRam Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah were among the top leaders who wished people a happy and prosperous Onam through social media.Interestingly, all of them chose the language, Malayalam, the mother tongue of the Keralites, to wish people during the occasion.In a tweet, Kovind said “greetings and good wishes to fellow citizens, particularly to our brothers and sisters from Kerala in India and abroad, on Onam.May this harvest festival bring immense joy and prosperity to each one of us.”Modi tweeted that the Onam may further the spirit of happiness, well-being and prosperity in the society.The day also witnessed a hunger strike in front of the office of the state Public Service Commission (PSC) here by a group of Malayalam language lovers demanding the agency to conduct all recruitment examinations in Malayalam.The week-long Onam celebrations, organised by the stage government got off to a colourful start last evening with the musical performance of national award-winning playback singer,S Chitra.Also Read | Mamata Banerjee hopes Malayalees will overcome pain caused by floodAlso Watch | Sombre Onam in flood-hit KeralaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Fogo Island Revival

first_img The Dive Motel Brings Legit 70s-Era Swagger to Nashville Editors’ Recommendations 9 Essential Kayak Fishing Accessories to Get You Started Why You Should Make Plans to Visit Greenland Now Just off the northeastern coast of Newfoundland lies an island remote enough to have its own time zone; one and a half hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time to be precise. Fogo Island is governed by a sleepy, bygone way of life where traffic lights, advertising billboards and fast food joints are unknown.Not much attention would have been paid to this treeless, rocky outcrop – indeed it might even have been completely forgotten – if it weren’t for the efforts of one particular woman who is largely responsible for putting Fogo on the map, or at least in the press. After making her fortunes in Silicon Valley during the digital boom years, island native Zita Cobb decided to retire early and reinvest her earnings into Fogo’s community with the creation of the Shorefast- Foundation. The non-profit organization aims to stimulate the islands economy by making its residents less dependent on fishing as well as promoting the local culture abroad.The one hundred square mile island is reached by a forty five minute ferry journey from the harbor town of Farewell, which is a sixty mile drive from the nearest airport in Gander.  Northern Europeans, who then proceeded to make fishing their way of life, were the first permanent settlers here in the eighteenth century and today Fogo is dotted by small villages, each with only a few hundred inhabitants and story book names like Little Seldom and Tilting.Cobb’s achievements culminated with the recently opened Fogo Island Inn – designed by Canadian born, Norwegian based architect Todd Saunders – which although sufficiently striking, looks more like an Antarctic research station than an upscale hotel from the exterior. Inside it’s a different story – warm and modern wood clad spaces are flanked by huge floor to ceiling windows allowing for spectacular landscape views. Aside from twenty nine sea facing rooms spread over four floors, the building houses a restaurant, library, movie theater, art gallery, conference room, lobby and rooftop spa complete with sauna. The inn was almost entirely built, furnished (including hand made wooden beds, hand woven quilts) and staffed by the islanders. It’s also strictly eco conscious, fitted with solar panels and electric cars for guests. Apart from ensuring that everything which exits the hotel kitchen is handmade on the premises, Canadian chef Murray McDonald gives an almost haute cuisine twist to humble local ingredients like caribou, lamb, plenty of seasonal fish and foraged produce.For a better picture of Fogo’s unique character follow this link.
