first_imgThe German was creating issues until Lampard made some half-time tweaks (Picture: Getty)Frank Lampard says Chelsea struggled to deal with the movement and positioning of Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and was disappointed with how his side dealt with playing against 10 men.The west Londoners looked in complete control of Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge when David Luiz was sent off for a cynical foul, with the double jeopardy rule not applying as Jorginho converted the resulting penalty.But rather than laying siege to Arsenal’s goal, it was actually the visitors who began to exert control, with Mikel Arteta even changing his mind over subbing on a centre-back due to how well the team were playing. Frank Lampard explains how Mesut Ozil caused Chelsea problems against Arsenal Advertisement Ozil worked tirelessly before being substituted in the second half (Picture: Getty)Lampard was unhappy with how Chelsea approached the match once Arsenal had been reduced to 10 men, particularly how they dealt with Ozil, and welcomed the chance to make tweaks at half-time.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAsked why his side struggled to control the game despite their man advantage, Lampard explained: ‘Well I think probably for 15 minutes in the first half it did because I think we were still probably in the mindset of them with 11.‘And Ozil pulling out to the side and giving you some problems and I think we ended up being in a kind of middle ground. So I was pleased for half-time so I could address that.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Lowe Rental has been working side-by-side with the retail and refrigeration industries for over 40 years. During this time Lowe has witnessed a significant advancement in the technology used in integral refrigeration. The new generation of integrals now offer display and operating characteristics on par with their remote counterparts, tackling old limitations such as heat egress, noise and inefficiencies. Lowe’s technical experts are now seeing a growing number of integrals address traditional issues and deliver energy efficiencies that supersede those of the remote system. In order to support these findings, Lowe commissioned an independent study on the energy efficiency of integral cabinets vs remote systems, by Professor Judith Evans and her team at Refrigeration, Developments & Testing (RD&T). The findings are reported in this study and show that 5 out of the top 5 integral cabinets are up to 15% more energy efficient than their remote equivalents. This whitepaper also challenges the historical trend towards the outright purchase of refrigeration systems by analysing the financial and operational benefits of Long-Term Rental..last_img read more

BLOG: Wolf Administration Launches #ItsOnUsPA Campaign

October 17, 2020

first_img January 29, 2016 By: Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf First Lady Frances Wolf,  It’s On Us PA,  Public Safety,  The Blog Today, at Elizabethtown College, we joined Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, the PA Commission for Women, representatives from “It’s On Us” and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, numerous presidents from colleges across the state, and state representatives and senators to make an exciting announcement in our state’s fight against sexual assault.We announced “It’s on Us PA” – the first statewide effort to address the crisis of campus sexual assault. This builds on the White House “It’s on Us” campaign.The InitiativeWe need to treat sexual assault in our schools and colleges as the serious problem it truly is. We need to agree that we’re not going to put up with it any longer. That’s why we are launching this initiative.Together, we launched “It’s On Us PA.” Building off the momentum of the national “It’s On Us” movement launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014, “It’s On Us PA” will engage education leaders from school superintendents to college presidents as well as students, teachers, faculty, staff, civic leaders, families, and communities to make a personal and public pledge to play a role in preventing, addressing, and responding effectively to sexual violence.With this announcement, Pennsylvania is the first state in the nation to launch an “It’s On Us” campaign. “It’s On Us PA” will be a statewide campaign that invites everyone to play a role in ending sexual assault.The PlanThe goals of “It’s On Us PA” are to:Improve awareness, prevention, reporting, and response systems in schools, colleges and universities to better serve all students.Remove and reduce the barriers that prevent survivors from not only reporting their assaults but also accessing vital resources. This will be accomplished by creating a more consistent, empowering reporting process for student survivors of gender-based violence.Demonstrate significant, proactive, and sustainable leadership to change campus culture by challenging Pennsylvania’s education leaders – including college and university presidents and district superintendents – as well as students, teachers, faculty, staff, families, and communities to pledge to improve their institutions’ climate.With today’s launch, we will kick off a year of action.The Governor’s Office and the Pennsylvania Department of Education will hold roundtable discussions with leaders and community stakeholders over the next three months to develop a package of proposed legislation and recommendations to implement “It’s On Us PA” and to address the pressing issues of sexual assault in our schools, colleges and universities.PDE will also launch a webinar series in the spring for schools, colleges and universities focused on best practices and existing legal requirements related to sexual violence, including Title IX, Jeanne Clery Act, and state law.The CrisisPennsylvania’s greatest resource is the more than 2.5 million children and young adults enrolled in our schools and postsecondary institutions. We must ensure that every single student has an opportunity to live and learn in a safe, supportive environment that allows them to reach their full potential.For too many of our young people, classrooms and campuses are not the safe havens they should be.Sexual violence affects an estimated one in five college women and one in 20 college men. Nearly 20 percent of girls between the ages of 14 and 17 are sexually assaulted.Sexual assault affects the health and well-being of students.  Sadly, sexual assault can also derail a student’s educational success. Survivors often struggle with long-term health issues, including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse. They are more likely to earn lower grades or drop out of school altogether.The impact of this violence extends beyond individuals to the entire community. Based on estimates from researchers, the lifetime costs in lowered educational attainment and lost productivity for adolescent girls experiencing sexual assault in Pennsylvania is a staggering $15.1 billion.Let’s Get StartedWhen a person is sexually assaulted, it reflects – and often reinforces – a number of negative forces: it promotes a culture of unfairness and discrimination, feeds on the pernicious idea that some people have clearer rights than others, and builds an environment of fear among the community of friends, acquaintance, and neighbors who know of the survivor’s ordeal.Safety is a fundamental civil right, and sexual assault is a clear violation of that civil right. When that violation occurs for any member of a community, it violates the right of everyone to a safe society. A society in which sexual assault is a big problem is a society in which the core values we claim to hold dear – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – are little more than empty ideals.We need to end sexual assault.We must recognize that this is a problem that demands leadership, courage, and action. We are proud to launch “It’s On Us PA.” Ensuring our students’ safety and well-being is paramount not only for their success, but the success of Pennsylvania as a whole.center_img BLOG: Wolf Administration Launches #ItsOnUsPA Campaign SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi has already warned staff that transfers are not a priority for the club this summer. It is understood the Spaniard explicitly played down the prospect of any big-money signings in a weekly video call with chief executive Vinai Venkatesham and all non-playing employees. The Gunners have been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, who has a £44m release clause, but the deal looks to have hit a major stumbling block. The club have already looked to cut costs by announcing that most of the first team and manager Arteta have agreed 12.5 per cent pay cuts for the next 12 months. read also:Arteta is playing Pepe out of position at Arsenal – Robson The North Londoners also confirmed that 14 executives have taken a 30 per cent salary reduction for the next year.

The Gunners splashed a club record £72million in the summer to sign winger Pepe from Lille on a five-year contract. It came as a surprise following suggestions Arsenal had a tight budget to do business with. But it later emerged the transfer would be paid in five instalments over Pepe’s Emirates contract. Bleacher Report have now claimed the Gunners are looking to sell up to six players in the next window to ensure they have the cash to cover the money owed to Lille. Skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and strike partner Alexandre Lacazette have both been linked with a move away from London recently, with Mesut Ozil also named as a potential way of recouping money.Advertisementlast_img read more

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov says the day Cristiano Ronaldo retires will be “one of the saddest days in world football”. But he has named Red Devils wonderkid Mason Greenwood in the same bracket as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as one of those in line to replicate the Portuguese superstar in the next generation. Ronaldo and Barcelona rival Lionel Messi have been the dominant duo in the game for over a decade but are both entering the latter stages of their careers. And Berbatov believes Greenwood, 18, could be capable of reaching the same highs they have as his career develops after his stunning breakthrough campaign at Old Trafford. Berbatov told Betfair: “It will be one of the saddest days in world football when Ronaldo finishes playing, even those who dislike him will appreciate him. “The day will come, but hopefully not for some time yet. When he’s finished, other players will come, even Pele and Maradona were eventually replaced- life is a circle. “We have Neymar, Mbappe, Greenwood, and other young players that can hopefully reach the highs of Ronaldo and Messi, as unbelievable as that may seem.” The Bulgarian striker also sees shades of his former team-mate Ronaldo as he watches young talent Greenwood. But he insists he should still be given time and patience to hit the highest level without being labelled the next Ronaldo or Messi. He added: “Mason Greenwood has really impressed me, even before his last game, he always gets his shots on target, and he has two good feet, not just his left. “It’s good to see he’s being given a chance to shine and play regularly, and he’s taking that chance. He’s well on the way to being a really good player, what he’s shown is unbelievable. “He reminds me of Ronaldo at that age, especially with his self-belief and confidence to take players on. They also share quickness and sharpness, he’s in a great position for his age, and as I said, he’s embraced the opportunity. “He’s proving he can be a brilliant player not just now, but also in the future. If he continues on his current path, he’ll be one of the best players in the world. read also:Shearer: Man Utd teen Greenwood reminds me of myself “He’s still a long way from being as good as Ronaldo I have to add, he has a long way to go, but at the moment he’s doing it the right way and he’s in the best environment possible. “He’s surrounded by a great manager, experienced players, and great people, all of whom will help him take the next steps. “These days we rush too quickly to say a player is the next Maradona, Pele, Messi or Ronaldo, we should let him find his feet.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading… last_img read more

Sanchez decision delights Wenger

September 20, 2020

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not know the exact reason Alexis Sanchez chose the Emirates Stadium over Anfield – but he is glad the Chile forward will be lining up for his side rather than against them for Liverpool on Saturday. “At the end of the day, only Sanchez can explain to you why he has chosen us. I don’t know why he did that, but we are happy that he made that decision,” said Wenger of the £32million Chile forward, who has netted 19 goals so far. “I was (aware of Liverpool’s interest), but you never know if it is really true, but I thought it could be because of the interest in Suarez (from Barcelona). “In the negotiations, yes, it is a strength – and it makes sense, an exchange and some money for Liverpool.” Wenger believes the way Sanchez has adapted so quickly to a change in environment proves he is one of the best around. “If you look at the qualities, efficiency, work-rate, fighting spirit – (he is at the) top,” the Arsenal boss added. “When it (the game) becomes flat, he can revitalise the strengths and dynamics of the team and the supporters.” Ahead of the key Barclays Premier League clash, Wenger was keen to play down any talk of a potential summer transfer move for Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling, who has so far rejected a new contract offer. Despite the Reds having lost to Manchester United before the international break to dent hopes of another top-four finish, Wenger has been impressed by the way Brendan Rodgers has developed his team following the sale of Suarez and injury to striker Daniel Sturridge. “He has done very well. I think he found a solution at the right time,” the Arsenal manager said. “They did well last season too, they scored over 100 goals in the Premier League, which is absolutely fantastic.” Sanchez had his selection of clubs once Barcelona had decided to let him leave, and following the World Cup, the 26-year-old was convinced to continue his career under Wenger’s expert guidance, going on to make an instant impression in English football. The French coach, however, admits the possibility Liverpool could use their interest in Sanchez as leverage during negotiations over Luis Suarez’s move to the Nou Camp last summer was always on the cards. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Manuel Pellegrini: I can’t stop Vincent Kompany playing for Belgium

September 20, 2020

first_img Pellegrini claims the 29-year-old will not be fit for another fortnight and Belgium will soon realise that. But Wilmots, who has a right to have Kompany examined by his own medical staff, is hopeful the player could face Israel on October 13. Pellegrini, speaking at a press conference, said: “Of course it’s outside the control of any club manager. The national team have a list of the players that play for them and they have, in the international break, the authority to use them. “We can’t do anything about that because they have the decision – but he cannot play. “I hope that Vincent can return after the international break but I am not sure. I hope that after 15 days he will be able to play but the calf is a difficult muscle. We must see in the way he improves.” Wilmots delivered a more upbeat assessment of Kompany’s condition as he spoke to media following his squad announcement. He told reporters in Belgium: “I talked to Vincent on the phone yesterday. He missed a few games but now he is fit. “Vincent is coming. After consulting with Manchester City and the medical staff he will follow a tailored fitness programme. “On Monday he starts to run again. He won’t play Saturday against Andorra but there’s a big chance that against Israel he will be fit to play. “Anyway I wanted Vincent with us, he will follow his schedule with us. But we won’t take risks with him.” City have clashed with Belgium over their captain in the past. In March 2013 former City manager Roberto Mancini criticised Wilmots for picking Kompany to face Macedonia despite a lengthy lay-off with a calf injury. Pellegrini was insistent there would be no repeat this time simply because Kompany will not be fit. He said: “I can’t ask him not to travel – if the national team call him, he must go. He is an important player, he must be with his mates and Belgium are playing important games for the next European Championship. “It is not a problem for him to go to the national squad but he cannot play. “In the same way when you don’t play for your national team you cannot play after for your club, it must be the same in the other sense. If you cannot play for your squad you cannot play for your national squad.” Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits he would be powerless to stop Belgium playing captain Vincent Kompany in their final Euro 2016 qualifiers. Belgium coach Marc Wilmots is heading for a potential clash with Pellegrini after naming the injured City skipper in his squad for the upcoming fixtures against Andorra and Israel. The influential defender has missed City’s last four games with a calf problem and has also been ruled out of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash against Newcastle.
