Football News Sergio Aguero hat-trick thumps Arsenal, Manchester City close gap on Premier League leaders Liverpool

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Manchester City closed the gap to Liverpool by two points.Manchester City had lost to Newcastle but Liverpool drew against Leicester.Liverpool lead by two points while Arsenal slid to sixth behind Manchester United. Manchester: Pep Guardiola was glad to see Manchester City’s clinical best return as Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick closed the gap Premier League leaders Liverpool to just two points in a 3-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday. The champions were let off the hook by Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Leicester on Wednesday, 24 hours after City’s shock 2-1 defeat by Newcastle with what Guardiola described as an unrecognisable performance. This time City did take advantage of playing a day before Jurgen Klopp’s side, who travel to West Ham on Monday, to pile on the pressure and jump back ahead of Tottenham, who had leapfrogged City into second on Saturday. “After what happened at Newcastle, everybody thought we would be seven points behind, everyone expected Liverpool to beat Leicester,” said Guardiola.           “But a lot of things are going to happen until the end of the season, a lot of games will be tough. That is the real Premier League, you know better than me what that means and what we have to do. The most important thing today was the players showed why they are a good team. We didn’t recognise ourselves in the previous game at Newcastle. Today, at least, we came back.”  Aguero’s seventh goal in as many games in 2019 – and his 10th in his last dozen against Arsenal – was the highlight of a thoroughly dominant performance. For the second time in a week, the Argentine scored inside the first minute to give City the perfect start by heading home Aymeric Laporte’s cross. highlights However, just like on Tyneside on Tuesday, City failed to press home their advantage as Laurent Koscielny profited from some slack defending to head home an equaliser just 10 minutes later.       Gundogan’s delightful pass        Guardiola’s men were knocked out of their stride for most of the remainder of the first half, but retook the lead in style just a minute before the break when Ilkay Gundogan’s delightful lofted pass teed up Raheem Sterling to cross for Aguero to tap home.     In contrast, the second half was a stroll and City should have more than just the one goal to show for their dominance. Sterling was the provider again for Aguero to secure his 10th Premier League hat-trick in controversial fashion as the ball came back off the striker’s arm before rolling over the line just after the hour mark. “He was born with that talent, he will die with that talent,” added Guardiola on Aguero’s goalscoring ability.A sixth consecutive away league game without a win sees Arsenal slip down to sixth behind Manchester United, who were 1-0 victors at Leicester earlier on Sunday, and three points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea in the battle for Champions League football next season.              “They showed their superiority over 90 minutes but, above all, in the second half,” said Arsenal boss Unai Emery. “We need time to reach our target and need to be calm, patient.”        Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Aguero again peppered Bernd Leno with powerful shots that the German kept out to maintain some respectability for Arsenal. But that is all they had to show for another sorry away performance that leaves their chances of avoiding a third straight season in the Europa League fading.               “We still have big games and I think we need more away wins, because at home we play very good,” said Leno. “We win many games at home, but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”last_img read more


Father of 4 gets 4 years for narcotics possession

first_imgA father of four will spend four years without his children after he was on Monday jailed for the said period by city Magistrate Judy Latchman.Kevin Clark, 34, was also fined $30,000 when he admitted to having 184 grams of cannabis in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.The defendant reportedly turned up at the Brickdam Police Station after ranks from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) swooped down at his Lot 135 King Edwards Street, Albouystown home and found the narcotics hidden in a barrel in the premises.The ranks were told by Clark’s step-daughter that the drug belonged to him. The man was not at home at the time of the search.After reporting to the Police Station, Clark told the ranks that he was selling the drug as he lost his job as a security guard and needed to provide for his family.last_img read more


Killing salmonella, avian flu in eggs

first_img16 November 2005A consortium led by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has developed a new system that pasteurises raw eggs to destroy the dangerous Salmonella enteritidis bacteria – and could kill the virus that causes avian influenza.Salmonella can cause potentially lethal diarrhoea and is a major concern for the restaurant trade, which uses raw eggs in puddings and sauces.With increased restrictions on feed antibiotics administered to chickens, the incidence of salmonella is rising. Many countries have recently had to take measures to contain salmonella outbreaks.The World Health Organisation reports that 40% of food poisoning cases in Europe are a result of infected eggs. In Africa, the higher incidence of HIV can make the consequences of salmonella poisoning more serious in immune-compromised individuals.To tackle the problem the research consortium pooled the skills of the CSIR, the University of Pretoria, Delphius Technologies and Eggbert Eggs, the country’s second largest egg producer. Financial support came from South Africa’s Innovation Fund.The process works with low-frequency microwaves and hot air, says Nell Wiid, managing director of Eggbert Eggs. The eggs are placed in a specially designed microwave oven and are heated to between 50°C and 70°C, killing the salmonella bacteria without cooking the eggs.Pasteurised eggs are sold in the US, but they cost up to three times more than untreated eggs, says Wiid. Moreover, the US system uses an impractical water-bath technique that partly cooks the egg white.The South African technique requires a specially designed oven cavity and phased process developed by Delphius Technologies, specialists in the development of industrial microwave ovens. The consortium is seeking an international patent for the ovens and processes.“The most difficult part of the project optimising the heating curve and identifying hot spots,” says Wiid. “Eggs vary in shape, mass, position of the yolk and heating profile and the microorganisms are sensitive to many of these variables.”The bird flu threatBy the time the consortium’s work had produced results, warnings by the World Health Organisation on bird flu led the team to expand its research to include testing on a low-virulence strain of the avian flu virus.“Preliminary results from these trials indicate that the new pasteurisation technology also destroys the avian influenza pathogen,” says Dr Gatsha Mazithulela, the CSIR’s executive director for biosciences.“While all indications are that South Africa is currently free of avian flu, we are encouraged by these results and by the future potential of this technology as one possible preventative measure.”From December South African consumers will be able to buy pasteurised eggs – clearly marked as “Safe Eggs” and “Pasteurised Eggs” – from supermarkets. They will cost about 8c more than unpasteurised eggs. The eggs also have an extended shelf life of at least double that of unpasteurised eggs, and can be kept for up to six weeks at 18°C to 22°C.Huge international interest in the technology has taken Wiid to Belgium and France, and he is optimistic that South Africa could significantly benefit from this innovation.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more


Love for sport urges Bindra to go for more

first_imgOne of the questions Abhinav Bindra gets asked a lot is, having achieved the pinnacle of his sport with Olympic and World Championship gold medals, how does he motivate himself to keep going?The answer, according to India’s first individual Olympic gold medallist, is love. “I love my sport, and I love struggle. Shooting is what I enjoy and cherish. That’s what keeps me going, and I’m looking forward to bettering my (Beijing Olympics) performance in London next year – both in the mental and physical aspects,” Bindra told MAIL TODAY on the sidelines of the India Today Youth Summit in the Capital.”The past cannot be transplanted into the future, so I always try and stay in the present. There are no glamorous shortcuts, no magic tricks for success; the magic pills you get are illegal and worthy of contempt. So I am prepared for another period of sweating hard for success. I am glad to take the plunge again.”Bindra’s current motivation is a far cry from his state of mind a couple of years ago, when he was contemplating giving up the sport. But slowly, he has worked his way out of that rut and into an attacking mindset again. He has found consistent improvement in his scores in each of the four ISSF World Cups this year, culminating in clinching the second Olympic quota spot for the country in the 10m air rifle event by qualifying for the final in Munich in July.If he keeps up his scores in the trials and international competitions, Bindra stands to compete in his fourth Olympic Games, having started his journey at Sydney in 2000.advertisementNine shooters have already booked berths for India at London 2012, and Bindra is proud of the team’s achievements in the last three years.”There has always been a lot of talent around, but now the interest in the sport is matching the talent. I believe we are now more driven and hungry for success. This is something that has developed over the years, and it really bodes well for our future,” Bindra said.Last week, when Shagun Chowdhary became the first woman shotgun shooter from India to book an Olympic berth, in women’s trap, she had hailed the example set by Bindra’s Beijing gold as a strong motivational factor. The 28-year-old Chandigarh lad said he was humbled, and would be glad to share his experiences with anyone who came to him for advice.”I am a competitor, and I have to be hungry all the time, but it certainly is a humbling experience for me to hear such things from my contemporaries. If somebody came to me to ask about my experiences in preparing for the Olympics, I would be delighted to share it with them.”I must say that of course I had my way of doing things, which were built around the sort of person I am. So no one should think that my way is the way, and no other way is possible. I do not have a secret recipe for anything,” he said.”I am an ordinary human being, I have no Midas touch. In air rifle shooting, the difference between coming first and 20th is hardly a few millimetres. I just attribute my success to three principles – focus, attitude and good old hard work, and that is how I intend to continue. I hope my best is yet to come.”Bindra is open to new ideas in a bid to optimise his preparations, and also advised youngsters to be willing to learn at all times. “I am open to new ideas, new technologies and new learning. When I learnt that my clothing impacts how I shoot, I went into details that would make a clothing technologist cringe. I am a shooter, but if someone tells me that I must understand how my brain works, I don’t dismiss it as psycho babble. I would do anything to be better than the rest,” Bindra said.last_img read more


Bottas, Hamilton Top Spanish GP Practice for Mercedes (Pics,Vid)

first_imgMONTMELO, Spain — Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton looked poised to extend their dominance of Formula One after clocking the fastest laps in practice for the Spanish Grand Prix on Friday.Ferrari fast-tracked a new engine and brought in other updates during the two-week break since the Mercedes pair claimed their fourth consecutive one-two finish in Azerbaijan. But Hamilton and Bottas were still faster than their Ferrari rivals.Bottas posted the top times in both sessions under sunny and warm conditions at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit, lowering his own mark from the morning session.Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas of Finland sits in the garage during the first free practice at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, just outside Barcelona, Spain, Friday, May 10, 2019.

The competition is very strong, which is not a surprise. But we are still in the battle.”Bottas leads defending champion Hamilton by one point overall. Vettel is 35 points behind Bottas in third place.Hamilton has won the Spanish GP three times, including the last two years.Ferrari and the rest of the field could take a glimmer of hope from Bottas having to box for an apparent leak and Hamilton telling the team radio at one point that he was “struggling.”Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc of Monaco leads his teammate Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany during the first free practice at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, just outside Barcelona, Spain, Friday, May 10, 2019.

(AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)Otherwise, Mercedes appears ready to extend its record start for a two-car team in F1 after sweeping the first two spots in all four races.Max Verstappen had the fifth best time despite losing time due to mechanical issues with his Red Bull.The young Belgian also provided a scare to Bottas in the morning, when Verstappen flew through a curve and almost rammed into the Finn. Verstappen slammed on the brakes in time, before shaking his fist at Bottas.Verstappen, the only non-Mercedes driver to win the Spanish GP in the past five years, had to come into the garage for an apparent leak. He also complained later he was losing power when he tried to accelerate.The first session ended under a red flag after Lance Stroll clipped some grass, lost control and plowed his Racing Point into the barrier. Stroll walked away and was back out on the track once team mechanics patched up his crunched car.As for the lowly Williams, it seems there is no relief in store after Robert Kubica and George Russell finished at the bottom of the time sheet, around three seconds slower that the pacesetter. Kubica did do well to keep his car off the wall when he went off course early in the afternoon session.There will be a third practice on Saturday before qualifying.

What Questions Need Answered This Weekend Against UTSA?

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Cowboys creamed the road-runners last season by 30 points, in which Daxx Garman lit up the defense for 315 yards and two touchdowns.In his press conference this week, head coach Larry Coker said that he expects OSU to run the ball a lot, and also expects shots to be taken down field similarly to last season. Here are three questions I hope to have answered (at least partially) on Saturday.3. Will Brandon Sheperd emerge as Rudolph’s top target again?Last season, Sheperd caught 12 passes for 254 yards and 3 touchdowns against OU and Washington. He suffered a dislocated finger and was limited in the season opener. He was also limited target wise on Saturday but Gundy tells Mark Cooper that he is “fine” and that “he needs 6-8 touches a game.” If he is able to fully recover from his lingering issues, I would expect him to emerge as the clear No. 1 moving forward into Big 12 play.AdChoices广告2. Ummm, can we run?Kyle seems to think that the running game may not be so bad, but I slightly disagree – at least until there is notable improvement up front. Gundy has said that there won’t be any changes to the lineup for the big men up front, but another less than spectacular performance may induce shifts up front before they face off against the Longhorns in Austin.1. Is the defense going to continue to be ‘violent’?“I thought we played violent, which is what we ask of them.” Of course Glenn Spencer said that. The Central Bros. aren’t necessarily the cream of the crop non-conference foes, but so far the defense has been extraordinary – only allowing 21 points through two contests. UTSA is 0-2. but faced some offensive challenges last week against fellow Big 12 member Kansas State. Can they continue the violent streak? I’m going to go out on a (very small) limb and say yes. The #WTIB (We’re taking it back) mantra hasn’t lived up to expectations yet, but I expect the defense to finally create some turnovers in the contest Saturday.last_img read more


Jets Muhammad Wilkerson Charged In Car Accident

New York Jets’ defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson, the team’s first-round draft pick in 2011, was charged with careless driving and failure to maintain his lane after he was involved in an accident in New Jersey during which the car he was driving overturned after striking another vehicle, a police spokesman confirmed.Wilkerson was transported to a Newark hospital after he crawled out of his car, according to New Jersey Garden State Trooper Christopher Kay, who added that there did not appear to be any other serious injuries suffered by anyone in the car that Wilkerson struck.Kay said Wilkerson was charged with careless driving and failure to maintain his lane after he struck a Toyota Sienna with his 2011 Dodge Challenger, according to the police report. Police responded after being notified of the accident at 4:29 a.m. on Saturday.Police don’t believe alcohol played a role in the accident.“First and foremost, other than the minor injuries, he’s OK and everyone else involved is OK but I do not have a lot of details,” said Chad Wiestling, the agent for Wilkerson.The Sienna that Wilkerson struck contained 10 people, Lieutenant Steven Jones, a spokesperson for the New Jersey State Police, said. Three complained of pain but none were treated, he said.Wilkerson’s Challenger “probably went more than 10 yards on the roof,” Jones said.Wilkerson reported to the Jets team facility Monday and was examined by the team’s medical staff.A Jets spokesperson said that Wilkerson needed stitches in his forearm after the accident, but that the injury should not interfere with his ability to be ready for training camp. Jets players are due to report on July 26. read more
