Now at Inter Milan, Conte signed Moses on loan in January, much to the wing-back’s delight Inter threw away the lead to lose 2-1 to Bologna, prompting Conte to question his own future at the club, and Marotta admits feelings of ‘bitterness, disappointment and regret’ remain fresh. “Great bitterness and disappointment remains from not having bagged all three points, despite us playing excellently in the early stages of the game,” the Nerazzurri’s general manager told Sky Sport Italia. “In particular, we lament certain incidents, such as the missed penalty that could’ve put us 2-0 up.Advertisement “We can’t change what happened and there’s great regret on our part.

He’s certainly very angry. “Conte’s criticism shows us what kind of character he is. In criticising himself, he showed he wants to achieve much more. “The Verona match is interlocutory for the journey we’re on, but it comes at a time when we have to show that we’ve drawn lessons from what happened yesterday.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted ContentBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemTop 10 Enemies Turned Friends In TV10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Portuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti7 Reasons It’s Better To Be A Vegan10 Extremely Dirty Seas In The World9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo90s Stunners Who Still Look Gorgeous7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombslast_img read more

Murphy looking for Top performance

first_imgTrainer Colm Murphy is hoping a return to the Flat will spark a revival in Top Spin’s fortunes when he lines up for the Connacht Hotel (QR) Handicap at Galway on Monday, the feature race on the opening card of the seven-day Festival. Press Association The eight-year-old, owned by JP McManus, is fit from two runs over hurdles this month, with t he latest coming only last week when he was a respectable fourth to Kylecrue at Tipperary. He now has his first start on the level since May 2013 when he was unplaced in a 20-runner handicap over a mile and a half at the Curragh won by Paddy the Celeb. center_img “Touch wood, he seems in good order. He ran OK the last day in Tipperary,” said Murphy. “He hasn’t been setting the world on fire over hurdles so we’re hoping maybe going back to the Flat might rejuvenate him a little bit. “He seems to be coming to himself. Fingers crossed, he’ll run well.” McManus is also represented in the 19-runner field by Plinth. Aidan O’Brien’s runner has an entry in the Guinness Galway Hurdle at the Ballybrit course on Thursday. That also applies to others who include Tony Martin’s Ted Veale and Gordon Elliott’s Eshtiaal. last_img read more

Six New Zealand cities to host 2021 Women’s World Cup

first_imgTHE venues for the 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand have been revealed, with the final of the prestigious ODI tournament to be held under lights at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval.The tournament will kick off with an opening weekend at Auckland’s Eden Park, while matches will also be played in Wellington, Hamilton, Tauranga and Dunedin.The semi-finals will be held at Tauranga’s Bay Oval and Hamilton’s Seddon Park, while newly installed lights at Hagley Oval will ensure the decider can be held as a day-night blockbuster.In all, the 2021 ODI World Cup will feature 31 matches between February 6 and March 7 next year.Australia captain Meg Lanning would no doubt relish a return to Bay Oval, a venue where she has struck three of her 13 ODI centuries.Australia last toured New Zealand in early 2017, a campaign that saw them play at Bay Oval and Eden Park’s outer oval, while they also played three ODIs at the Tauranga venue in 2016 alongside two T20Is at Wellington’s Basin Reserve.The remaining venues will largely present an unknown to the Australians, if scheduled to play there. Ellyse Perry is the only current squad member to have played at Seddon Park, while none of the current group has played at Dunedin’s University Oval or Eden Park proper.The complete draw will be revealed in March.While Australia’s thoughts are currently firmly on the upcoming T20 World Cup, to be played on home soil from February 21 and culminating in the final at the MCG on March 8, the 2021 ODI World Cup is another tournament they will be desperate to succeed in after a disappointing campaign in the UK in 2017.After heading into that event as red-hot favourites, they were bundled out of the tournament in a shock semi-final loss to India, while hosts England went on to win the final at Lord’s.“Our goal was to ensure all 31 matches will be played at the best venues, encompassing a geographic spread that ensured as many Kiwi sports fans as possible get to engage with the tournament,” ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup CEO Andrea Nelson said.“It was great to see the enthusiasm from so many cities bidding for a chance to welcome the best players in the world to their backyard.”Currently, only Australia, New Zealand and defending champions England have qualified for the eight-team tournament.New Zealand qualify as hosts, while Australia and England’s strong performances across the current edition of the ICC Women’s ODI Championship – a three-year, round-robin competition to determine the four teams who automatically qualify alongside the host nation – have secured their spots.Two of Pakistan, South Africa, India, West Indies and Sri Lanka will join them following the final round of the Championship, while the remaining two spots will be decided at the World Cup qualifiers in Sri Lanka later this year.last_img read more

Discussion highlights space law

first_imgThe USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism hosted a panel in the Gould School of Law Wednesday afternoon to discuss legal policies and actions surrounding space travel.The event was organized by Alex Kaplan, a second year student in the USC Gould School of Law and president of USC’s Space Law Society.Rita Lauria, a professor at Annenberg and the founder of the legal firm Metalaw®.US, Julie Jiru, an attorney at SpaceX and Matthew Schaefer, a professor at the University of Nebraska served as panelists at the discussion on the future of space law as a legal field.Space law is becoming increasingly important as more and more private companies invest in the space travel industry. SpaceX’s goal, for example, is to eventually enable people to live on other planets, according to its website.Though all three panelists spoke on the same subject, each had a different perspective and area of expertise.Jiru discussed the Space Act Agreement, a law that enabled the development of the fledging space transportation industry that exists today. Prior to 2004, collaboration between the government and private space firms was possible but, according to Jiru, was limited by the government’s Federal Acquisition Regulation contracts, which  placed too much stress on young space companies.“[A] Federal Acquisition Regulation contract is anywhere from 100 pages to 1000 pages, some are 2000 pages, some are 3000 pages, and it goes on,” Jiru said. “If you’ve worked with a FAR-based contract, you go by the mantra that you are not allowed to launch your launch vehicle unless your contractual paperwork is as heavy as that vehicle that you are trying to lift.”Though legislation around space travel has since changed, companies interested in launching a spacecraft still face many liabilities.“When it comes to third party liability, the current U.S. regime is this: The U.S. government requires the space operator to get insurance up to the maximum probable loss,” Schaeffer said. “The [Federal Aviation Administration] has a way that they calculate through a complex formula.”Schaefer argued that government inaction and indecision, particularly in promising insurance coverage, was creating an unhealthy climate within the space industry.“The government promises to take care of the next $2.7 billion, but it would take an active Congress and an actual appropriation to do it,” Schaeffer said. “Here is the bad thing: Congress has started promising that [amount] for lesser and lesser periods of time. That is tough on the industry for planning purposes.”Exploration · Matthew Schaefer, professor at the University of Nebraska, lectured on the liabilities associated with space travel. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanAnother segment of space law, known as metalaw, looks at framing international law in the event of contact with extraterrestrial intelligent life.“Metalaw seeks to establish a regulatory scheme for outer space that considers the possible existence of other intelligent life and that could be used to help regulate interactions between such possible life forms,” Lauria said.Though metalaw focuses only on possibilities and not actuality, Lauria argued that the speed of technological advances and the slow pace of the legal response necessitated the urgency to speed the process to start considering actuality.Even though the event was specifically about space law, some students saw it as an opportunity to learn more about law in general.“From an undergraduate perspective, this was a good opportunity to get exposure to law, not to mention space law,” said Mabel Tsui, a senior majoring in communication. “Based on the information I have heard, it seems this is a fast-growing area of law.” Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojanlast_img read more

Professor gives talk on public space

first_imgDon Mitchell, distinguished professor of geography at Syracuse University and recipient of  MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships, spoke to USC students and faculty on the creation and significance of public space, specifically its role in relation to the homeless, minorities and protesters.In his talk, “People’s Park Again: The Ongoing History of the End of Public Space,” Mitchell examined changes in public space. The professor argued that since there is not a concrete definition of public space, the majority of the intellectual community tends to define public space in terms of what it is not.“An image or a shared understanding of … what public space is … is mostly assumed,” Mitchell said. “The image [of public space] appears to be one of … relatively open access [and] little capital control over the full functioning of the space; light policing.”While Mitchell says there is much debate over which modern spaces, such as malls or campuses, constitute public space, he turns to urban theorist Mike Davis’ definition of public space.“Public space is the space where changes in the city [are] fought out.”Such conflicts are evidenced by demonstrations of urban unrest in public spaces.“Public space is a space of conflict and is essential to the creation and resolution of conflict,” Mitchell said.He turned to the examples of the necessity of public space in civil rights protests and gay pride parades.“Public space is a space for organizing and protesting … [and is] essential for political people,” Mitchell said.Minority groups as political actors in public spaces further emphasize this point and bring forward new questions about what exactly public space is.“The increased presence of women, of gays, of minorities in public space … raised, in new ways, the question of who public space is for,” Mitchell said. “[Their] insistence on being present and visible in public space forced dominant society to confront its exclusions.”Mitchell explains the similar function of homelessness in cities in relation to public space.“The crisis of homelessness, which many interpreted to be a crisis of public space … [forces] the question of public space; what it was for, who belonged in it and who didn’t,” Mitchell said.In fact, the professor claimed that homelessness is central to understanding the conflicts of public space, and it was actually what led him to researching this field originally.“As a college student at San Diego State, I was so pissed off at the world around me,” Mitchell said. “Seeing the homeless just lying there on the streets … so unjust … I have an anger and passion about the issue that never left.”It was his work on homelessness that led him to examine public space and its relationship to homelessness in communities.Mitchell explained that states approach the issue of the homeless in public spaces as a matter of health, sanitation and safety.“Homeless people’s use and occupation of public space is seen as necessarily detrimental to order,” Mitchell said. “Homeless people either directly ruined or lead to the ruin of public space, in this argument.”As a result, new laws regulating quality of life emerged.“Quality of life laws developed to govern homeless people’s use of public space, or perhaps to remove them altogether.”Mitchell warns that this could become the worst-case scenario of what could happen with new public space regulations.“The worst thing that could happen … [would be] the clearing out of homeless people who have nowhere else to go.”Mitchell says that individuals can take action in or outside of activist groups.“[It is important to] find ways to work in solidarity with people who have no other place to be but in public.”He also argues that while housing is often regarded as the solution to homelessness, it is not enough.“Being outside in public spaces is valuable to the homeless, as it is to us.”Mitchell also encourages individuals to find opportunities to transform spaces, such as malls or chain restaurants, into public spaces.Mitchell points to a growing conflict in Queens, N.Y. between McDonald’s and the elderly Korean immigrant population who buy a cup of coffee and then sit at McDonald’s for the day, which turns the fast-food eatery into a “public space.”“Personally, the thing that I do is try to learn and explain … to understand and to research,” Mitchell said.last_img read more

Ronaldo Vs Bale

first_imgThe Real Madrid teammates, who have competed for the Bernabeu spotlight for three seasons, face each other representing their nations in Lyon tonight.The two are also competing for the Euro 2016 golden boot, but Bale insists the match will be down to which country performs better as a team.He said: “It’s not about two players. We know and everybody knows that it’s about two nations in the semi-final – 11 men against 11. “(Ronaldo) is a fantastic player, everyone knows what he can do. But we don’t worry about the opposition. We just do what we do. It’s about how we perform as a team, and as a team we can shut-out a lot of threats.“The star in our team is all of us. We are all together, we all work as one, running for each other, tackling for each other. We get on like brothers and we’re having fun, enjoying the occasion, with no fear. It’s working so far.”In contrast to a relaxed and happy Bale, Ronaldo seemed to reveal a tense demeanour earlier in the tournament when he threw a TV reporter’s microphone into a lake.Bale laughed at the mention of the incident and stated he was sure his club colleague “had his reasons”.Bale said: “I can’t comment on how he’s feeling or what he’s doing. I’m sure he had his reasons for doing what he did.“I feel comfortable and we’re enjoying ourselves. Sometimes you have to fulfil your responsibilities and doing interviews is a part of it.“We get on very well at Madrid and enjoy playing with each other. What he does off the pitch is his private life. It’s not for me to decide who’s the better player. If I can help Wales win that’s all I need.”Key Welsh players Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies will miss the semi-final through suspension, but Bale says their absence makes the squad even more determined to reach the final.“It’s horrible,” he said. “The rules are difficult to take sometimes. They’ll be hurt deep down, but they’re not showing it. It’s extra motivation to get to final.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Nickelodeon to produce esports sitcom with Mediapro

first_imgThe Latin America branch of Nickelodeon has partnered with Mediapro, a Spanish communications and event organiser and the architects of the Spanish LVP, to create an esports comedy show titled N00Bees. Production for the show will start in April and is expected to air in 19 countries across South and Central America in Q3 of 2018. Each episode is intended to run for 60 hour-long episodes and is to be about a group of friends who create an esports team, centred around new gamer Silvia as she helps her brother Erick and friends navigate the esports space.Mediapro will be producing the series in the company’s studio in Bogota, Columbia, and will feature footage from the LVP Superliga, their national esports leagues hosting tournaments in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty and League of Legends.Tatiana Rodríguez, Nickelodeon Latin America’s senior VP, said: “Mediapro’s experience in the esports industry, along with the series’ innovative storyline, engaging characters, and on-trend gaming theme are certain to make an impact with Nickelodeon’s audience in the region and create new fans in the process.”N00Bees will not be the first time Nickelodeon has dabbled with esports, however, as it contributed to funding for the Super League Gaming Series C last year.“We are especially excited with this project, which joins two different business areas of the Group: Content creation and e-sports, a universe in which we’d like to have more presence everyday,” said Javier Méndez, head of content, Mediapro Group. “We will provide all our experience in both areas to ensure a successful and appealing product.”Esports Insider says: Although esports television shows are not a new idea, it is interesting to see a children’s TV production company investing. It will be fascinating to see how they navigate the show and the accuracy of their portrayal. We’re not a huge fan of the title ‘N00Bees’, but with Mediapro and the LVP behind it, we shouldn’t be too worried.last_img read more
