Klopp keen on Premier League stint

first_img The 47-year-old said: ” It’s the only country, I think, where I should work, really, next to Germany, because it’s the only country I know the language a little bit and I need the language for my work.” Speaking in an interview with BT Sport’s SportsHUB programme, which will be aired in full on Saturday afternoon, he added: “So we will see. If somebody will call me, then we will talk about it.” Klopp led Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, and to the Champions League final last year. Klopp has long been linked with a move to England, with Manchester City and Chelsea reported potential destinations in the past and more recently Arsenal.

Ireland centre Cave urges Payne critics to deal in “facts not opinions”

first_img Press Association Centre Cave admitted he would have been annoyed to be hit with the kind of flak that Payne received from TV3 analyst and former Ulster boss Matt Williams after Ireland’s 44-10 victory over Romania. Ex-Scotland coach Williams slammed Payne for “making really poor decisions” and kicking too frequently against Romania – but Cave believes the New Zealand-born centre is in prime form. “In fairness to Jared I’d be surprised if he’s paid much attention to it, but if it was me I would probably be pretty annoyed,” said Cave. “It can be frustrating when guys are just throwing out opinions which aren’t based on facts of what actually happened in the game, then suddenly that becomes everyone else’s opinion of guys who’ve had a couple of beers and watched the game. “Then after a week it’s the perception of half the nation and it’s just completely false. “At the end of the day it can be frustrating at times but Jared will do the right thing, he’ll keep his head down, he’ll keep working hard and he’ll keep playing well for Ireland. “The first I heard about it was after Tommy (Bowe) had been in Monday’s press conference, because Tommy and I had actually had a chat last week about how much we were both looking forward to playing beside him. “So Tommy brought it up but it’s not something that consumes us. “I actually thought the Canada game was potentially Jared’s best game in green. “I haven’t seen fully what was said about him but I’ve seen a few things. “And it’s just opinion at the end of the day, it’s not really based on fact. “I heard about him apparently kicking the ball away too much but I think he kicked the ball twice and both times it was penalty advantage, and both times we went back for the penalty. “So we’ll deal with facts not opinions. “And I really enjoyed playing alongside him when I was named at 12 and he was named at 13 beside me, I knew I’d feel very comfortable in there.” Rob Kearney remains a doubt for the vital Pool D clash against Italy on Sunday after scans confirmed a minor gluteal tear, but Ireland bosses expect the full-back to recover in time to start at London’s Olympic Stadium. Kearney suffered a bang to his hip and the minor muscle tear in his buttock in scoring almost straight after coming off the bench in Ireland’s landslide victory over Romania at Wembley on Sunday. Ireland can secure quarter-final qualification by seeing off Italy this weekend, and ought to have Keith Earls back in action after the Munster flyer completed his head-injury protocols following a bang to the neck at the weekend. Cave is keen to hold onto the 12 shirt and continue his midfield partnership with Payne after a solid effort against Romania, but may struggle given Robbie Henshaw’s return to full fitness after hamstring trouble. “Jared’s an incredible communicator and a lot of his qualities, you can almost see the way he’s been brought up, everything he does is so simple,” said Cave. “I think he sees space really well, he makes really good, strong decisions on the ball and he’s a good communicator so he’s really good to defend with. “And at the end of the day you want to play with guys who make your job easier, and the amount of information he gives you, I think he’s done very well for Ireland over the past while. “And if anything I suppose I’d be a bit jealous that I haven’t got as many games as he has over the last year and done as well as he has.” Darren Cave has warned the TV pundits to stick to the facts when criticising Ireland’s World Cup performances, in an impassioned defence of team-mate Jared Payne.last_img read more

Incoming USC freshman dies in collision on I-110 freeway

first_imgLos Angeles Fire Department paramedics pronounced Olson dead on the scene. The CHP, which is investigating the incident, said it doesn’t know why Olson was walking in the FasTrak lanes at the time of the collision. Police have arrested the driver of the first vehicle and are still searching for the operator of the second one.  Olson was struck by a vehicle travelling south on the I-110 freeway near 37th Street while he was walking in the FasTrak lanes shortly before 2:45 a.m. Saturday. He was then struck by a second vehicle. Though the first driver stopped to help Olson, the second vehicle drove away, according to the California Highway Patrol.  Olson was matriculated to study business administration at the Marshall School of Business after graduating from Corona del Mar High School this past spring.  Folt and Vice President for Student Affairs Winston Crisp sent a memo to the University community Monday expressing condolences for Olson’s family and friends. The University also offered counseling services to students, faculty and staff through the USC Counseling Center.  Matthew Olson, an incoming freshman from Corona del Mar High School, died Saturday in a traffic collision. He was 18.   Corona del Mar principal Kathy Scott said the high school has resources available for students and staff affected by Olson’s death. “[Matthew] was the consummate teammate, always looking out for the interests of his friends and teammates before his own.” Corona del Mar volleyball coach Ryan Schachter wrote in a statement emailed to the Daily Trojan. “His legacy is much more than his incredible achievements in the classroom or in the athletic arena, he was a genuinely kind person and those who were fortunate to have known Matt are much better for it.” “We understand that a loss like this can be traumatic and that everyone grieves differently,” Scott wrote in a statement to the Daily Trojan.  He played on Corona del Mar’s 2018 National Championship volleyball team and earned a Coach’s Award for Hardest Working Player. In high school, Olson was also a member of Future Business Leaders of America and the Best Buddies program, where he volunteered with people with disabilities, President Carol Folt said in an email to the USC community.  Folt wrote in her email that the University will inform students of memorial plans as information becomes available. “Whatever your circumstances and wherever this new semester may take you, we ask that you please keep Matt and his family in your thoughts and prayers,” Folt and Crisp wrote. last_img read more

Japanese table to know the sex of your baby according to your birthday and that of your partner

first_imgThis Japanese table can predict the sex of your babyThat said, although its effectiveness is not confirmed by science, there is no doubt that it is a method that can be used to check whether it is a myth or something that works. Through a simple table we can know the sex of the new family member and, for this, we only need two data: the mother’s birthday month and the father’s birthday month.Its use is very simple: in the vertical columns we find the month of the mother and in the horizontal rows the month of the father. All you have to do is place yourself in the box where they intersect and keep the remaining number. Image: ViralPlusBelow we find a table with twelve numbers and another column with the months of the year. All you have to do is join the number you obtained in the previous table and then move to the row of the month in which the little one was conceived (or vice versa) to predict their sex. Of course, in addition to being a method that can be used by all those couples who want to know the sex of their baby before having access to that information, you can also check if this way of predicting it works by joining the birthdays of your parents. Both medicine and science have evolved fast enough to be able to discover the gender of babies at three or four months of pregnancy. But despite the fact that for now we cannot program and choose the sex of our next child, there is a Japanese table with hundreds of years that allows us, at least, to plan or intuit what their gender will be.Although this Japanese table is surprisingly accurate, it is not 100% reliable. In case you are interested in accurately finding your baby’s sex, it is worth saying that the best thing you can do is consult your gynecologist: there are several tests that experts in this area can perform to determine their gender. Although surprisingly accurate, it is not 100% reliableWe can know the gender of the baby by joining parents’ birthdayscenter_img Image: iStocklast_img read more
