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

Google Translate & Wikipedia: 16 Million Words Later

The search engine touted its efforts last week at Wikimania 2010, claiming that its translation tools have been used to translate “more than 100 million words of Wikipedia content into various languages worldwide”.According to a blog post on the Google Translate Blog, Google’s Translator Toolkit has been used over the past two years to bring Wikipedia’s 1.3 billion English words and 2.5 million articles to languages like Swahili and Hindi. During the first three months, the service was used to translate “600,000 words from more than 100 articles in English Wikipedia, growing Hindi Wikipedia by almost 20 percent” and has since translated more than 16 million words. Nonetheless, Google says that it is “off to a good start but, as you can see […] we have a lot more work to do to bring the information in Wikipedia to people worldwide”. The Translator Toolkit, unlike Google Translate, assists in translating content in a number of ways, rather than simply offering a machine translation and leaving it at that. The service, which is designed to pull Wikipedia’s pages directly, not only offers a translation, but offers help with translating difficult phrases and words. It also shows how other translations have occurred across the Web and, in a very Wikipedian fashion, share translations with others to view and edit. The use of Google’s Translator Toolkit shows the company’s continuing efforts in the realm of translation. Google has been busy lately, with automated captioning for YouTube videos, auto-translation for websites in Chrome and software to provide real-time voice translation over mobile phones.

We’re just trying to get after guys, try to pressure them, and try to dictate how we want to defend them instead of them dictating on how they want to attack us,” he said.That defensive intensity is what forced TNT’s main guys Glen Rice and Jayson Castro to commit 13 of their squad’s 22 turnovers that led to 23 turnover pointsBrownlee expects a much tougher Game 2 for the Gin Kings especially with the way they clobbered the KaTropa.“We know TNT is a tough team.
