Milestone Lamps fires Blues, Spurs slump

Posted in xgzdvglq on January 12th, 2020

first_imgLampard broke the deadlock against his former club West Ham in the 19th minute at Stamford Bridge, springing to head Eden Hazard’s dinked cross into the top-right corner.The England midfielder, 34, now stands only two goals behind Bobby Tambling in the list of Chelsea’s all-time top goal-scorers.Hazard added a delightful second goal five minutes into the second half, exchanging passes with Juan Mata on the right and drifting past Winston Reid before drilling a left-foot shot into the bottom-right corner.“It is a long race. We have to carry on and win our next game and see what others do,” said Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez.“In the first half, we could have scored two or three goals and you have to be pleased because we scored two goals and kept a clean sheet.”Fulham dealt Spurs’ challenge for a Champions League place another setback by condemning Andre Villas-Boas’ side to a second consecutive Premier League defeat.Having eliminated Inter Milan from the Europa League on Thursday, Spurs were bidding to tighten their grip on third place in the table and Gareth Bale had an early header cleared off the line by Sascha Riether.However, the hosts lost Michael Dawson to injury at half-time and then saw former striker Dimitar Berbatov claim the game’s only goal in the 52nd minute when he converted Riether’s low right-wing cross.Spurs’ best chance fell to Jermain Defoe in the dying stages, but his effort from Bale’s cut-back met its match in a superb reflex save from Mark Schwarzer.Coming in the wake of last weekend’s 3-2 loss at Liverpool, Spurs’ defeat left them a point below Chelsea and four points above fifth-place north London rivals Arsenal, both of whom have a game in hand.At the other end of the table, Arouna Kone struck in the final minute to give Wigan Athletic a 2-1 win at home to Newcastle United that injected fresh momentum into their quest to escape relegation.Jean Beausejour’s first Wigan goal put Roberto Martinez’s men ahead in the 19th minute, but Italian full-back Davide Santon drilled home an equaliser in the 72nd minute.Then, in the 90th minute, Ivorian striker Kone lashed the ball into the roof of the net following a goalmouth scramble to leave Wigan three points from safety with a game in hand on fourth-bottom Aston Villa.“It’s disappointing we’re in this position again and it’s up to us to get ourselves out of it,” said Wigan midfielder Shaun Maloney.The game had threatened to be overshadowed by a horrendous, knee-high challenge from Wigan midfielder Callum McManaman on visiting defender Massadio Haidara in the first half.McManaman escaped punishment for the foul, but Haidara had to be stretchered off and Newcastle coach John Carver was sent to the stands after losing his temper at the half-time whistle.“The tackle was awful,” Newcastle manager Alan Pardew told Sky Sports.“I lost a game in the last minute to what I think is handball (in the build-up) and I’ve got a boy who’s going to hospital.”Pardew also revealed that referee Mark Halsey had apologised to him for not spotting McManaman’s foul.Earlier, relegation-threatened Sunderland failed to capitalise on the dismissal of Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn as they were held to a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.After Wes Hoolahan headed Norwich in front in the 26th minute, the visitors lost Bunn to a straight red card when he handled the ball outside his area.Craig Gardner levelled for Sunderland with a 40th-minute penalty after a handball by Sebastien Bassong, but Sunderland could find no way past the visitors’ 10 men in the second half.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, March 18 – Frank Lampard scored his 200th Chelsea goal as his side beat West Ham United 2-0 on Sunday to snatch third place in the Premier League from faltering London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.Tottenham’s 1-0 loss at home to Fulham had opened the door for Chelsea and they took full advantage by recording a victory that lifted them to within four points of second-place Manchester City.last_img read more

Video games could cause real addiction

Posted in xgzdvglq on January 6th, 2020

first_imgSome doctors believe video-game addiction has become enough of a risk to children and adults to classify it as a mental disorder. Despite an admitted lack of proven research, the American Medical Association may vote next week on recommending that game addiction be classified as an official diagnostic condition by the American Psychiatric Association. Advocates of the move argue that video games can be every bit as addictive as nicotine and alcohol, with similar destructive effects on work and personal lives. “This is as tough as any of them,” said Dr. Thomas Allen, a Maryland psychiatrist who helped put game addiction on the AMA’s agenda. Major game publishers contacted Thursday did not respond to requests for comment. But the president of the industry’s trade group, Michael Gallagher of the Entertainment Software Association, issued a statement criticizing the AMA for “making premature conclusions without the benefit of complete and thorough data.” But despite the preliminary nature of the vote, the issue is adding new fuel to the constantly burning debates about video-game violence, potential government regulation and the power of electronic entertainment. Much of the proposal focuses on games’ impact on children and the need to provide guidance and assistance to parents, pediatricians and teachers. The AMA committee is expected to review the proposal Sunday and make its recommendation by Monday to the group’s policy-making House of Delegates, which is meeting in Chicago. Liz Kaneof, a retired dermatologist who chairs the committee, said a full vote is likely Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. A report with the proposal concluded “there is currently insufficient research to definitively conclude that video game overuse is an addiction.” mantonucci@mercurynews.com (408) 920-5690 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Even among the AMA members considering the proposal, there is skepticism. “This needs to have a little more study to know for sure,” said Dr. H. Peter Ekern, a family practitioner in Mexico, Mo., who sits on the committee that will evaluate the addiction recommendation. And most gamers are certain to be even more dubious of the proposal. Fremont resident Joe McCloud, 33, likes to say jokingly that he’s “addicted” to games. He used to play about 30 hours a week and has taken time off of work to play new games. But he says he doesn’t let gaming interfere with his life. “I don’t think video games themselves are addictive,” he said. Games are “only addictive if the person \ an addictive personality to begin with,” said McCloud. Even if the AMA approves the recommendation, it will take years before the psychiatric association finishes the additional investigation that’s required to make game addiction a formal mental disorder. last_img read more

Rose: ‘Not a penalty, but…’

Posted in xgzdvglq on November 30th, 2019

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Borussia Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose freely admits it wasn’t a penalty, but claims Roma’s opening goal should’ve been disallowed. Nicolò Zaniolo nodded in a corner and it was all set to end 1-0 before Scottish referee Willie Collum awarded a penalty in stoppages for Chris Smalling handball, even though it hit him in the face. “There was no handball, evidently, but that’s how these things go,” confessed Rose in his press conference after the 1-1 draw. “I have to say, though, that there was an offside position on Zaniolo’s corner.” If the Europa League group phase had VAR, then that penalty would never have been awarded. “I did not come here to discuss individual incidents. I wouldn’t have given that penalty, I understand the Roma fans are angry, but I prefer to put this incident to one side.” Gladbach are joint Bundesliga leaders, but have just two points from three Europa League games. “I don’t think there’s a difference in our approaches between the two competitions. We played well in the first 30 minutes today, especially.”last_img read more

Pakistan Cricket Board drops plans of playing day-night Test

Posted in xgzdvglq on November 26th, 2019

first_imgThe Pakistan Cricket Board has dropped its plans of holding day and night Test matches after its proposal to use an orange cricket ball was overruled by the International Cricket Council.An official source in the board told PTI that Pakistan had experimented a lot with pink and orange coloured balls in domestic cricket and suggested the use of the orange ball in Tests but ICC did not approve of it.”The ICC after conducting its own tests ruled that pink coloured balls were more usable for day and night Tests,” the source said.He said Pakistan was the first to start experimenting with the idea of having day/night first class matches.Also read: Post your cricket video, get picked says Pakistan Cricket Board “We held two five-day finals of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy first class event under lights and experimented successfully with the orange ball,” he said.”We even offered to have a day and night Test match against Sri Lanka in 2012/2013 in the United Arab Emirates but the Sri Lankan board rejected this proposal,” he revealed.Also read: Aimed to contribute for team, not personal milestone, says Ashwin “And after the ICC ruling we felt we had lost the initiative and are not planning any more experiments this season.”Also read:  The source also said that this was the reason why Pakistan also didn’t offer to play a day and night Test against England this winter in the UAE.”But now that a day and night Test is due to be held in Australia this year. We will see how it goes and then start having day and night first class matches and maybe even look at a day and night Test next year,” he said.advertisementThe source said that the PCB was in favour of day and night Test matches as it felt the venues in UAE and in South Asia were ideal for this.”Certainly day and night Tests have the potential of increasing the television viewership and ground revenues and spectators for the home board,” he said.last_img read more

Missile destroyer INS Kochi to be commissioned on Sept 30

Posted in xgzdvglq on November 26th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi, Sep 15 (PTI) Indias latest stealth destroyer, INS Kochi, will be commissioned into Navy later this month by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar. Built by Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL), the new ship is part of the Kolkata-class (Project 15A) guided missile destroyers. The first ship of the class, INS Kolkata, was commissioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. Parrikar is scheduled to commission the ship on September 30. Another ship, INS Chennai, is currently under production. These are the largest indigenously-built destroyer warships. The government had approved the construction of three Kolkata-class destroyers in May 2000. Conceptualised by Indian Navy, Kolkata-class is a follow-on model of the Delhi-class and is fitted with modern weapons and sensor systems. The propulsion system of Delhi-class was also retained with minor upgrades. Most of the systems integrated in the ships are designed and built in India. The destroyers are equipped with action information system and atmospheric control system. The modern stealth destroyers will demonstrate superior anti-surface warfare capabilities and anti-submarine capabilities. The Navy had in February this year successfully test-fired the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from INS Kolkata during Tropex exercise conducted in the Arabian Sea. The 290-km range conventional missile hit its target with pinpoint accuracy during this first-ever vertical launch. INS Kolkata is also scheduled to fire a long-range surface-to-air missile (LR-SAM) later this year. Called Barak 8, the missile is being jointly developed by India and Israel.
