Struggling Greece Drops Mitroglou

first_imgATHENS — Still looking for his first win as Greece coach, Claudio Ranieri has dropped Kostas Mitroglou for a European Championship home qualifier against the Faroe Islands Nov. 15 and a friendly against Serbia four days later.The surprise announcement came days after Georgios Samaras was also omitted, while Turkey-based veteran Fanis Gekas was recalled for duty at Karaiskaki Stadium.Under Ranieri, Greece has performed poorly in Euro 2016 qualifiers, losing at home to Romania and Northern Ireland and being held to a draw by Finland in Helsinki in Group F.The results have come as a shock after the national team reached the second round at the World Cup in Brazil.Ranieri blamed the weak performances on the difficult transition to younger players, and the Greek Football Association insisted this week it was not considering replacing the 62-year-old Italian coach.“Everything that has been written, talked about, or rumored has no bearing on the truth. … There is no issue regarding Mr. Ranieri, who is working hard toward achieving qualification,” an association statement said this week.Talented winger Jose Holebas is among several key players at Ranieri’s disposal following a bout of injury absences in previous matches.Bundesliga-based Kyriakos Papadopoulos had his return to the squad again delayed by a fresh injury and surgery that will keep him out at Bayer Leverkusen until the end of the year.Ranieri handed a place to defender Michalis Bakakis, who plays for second-division AEK Athens. “This is my first call-up and I’m very happy,” Bakakis said. “I want to work to stay on the team. … It’s what every football player dreams about.”___Greece:Goalkeepers: Orestis Karnezis (Udinese), Panagiotis Glykos (PAOK), Stephanos Kapino (Mainz).Defenders: Vassilis Torosidis (Roma), Avraam Papadopoulos (Trabzonspor), Kostas Manolas (Roma), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Borussia Dortmund), Vangelis Moras (Verona), Jose Holebas (Roma), Nikos Karabelas (Levante), Michalis Bakakis (AEK Athens).Midfielders: Giannis Maniatis (Olympiakos), Alexandros Tziolis (PAOK), Andreas Samaris (Benfica), Petros Mantalos (AEK Athens), Panagiotis Kone (Udinese), Kostas Fortounis (Sunderland), Charis Mavrias (Sunderland), Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (Verona).Forwards: Dimitris Salpingidis (PAOK), Fanis Gekas (Akhisar Belediyespor), Stefanos ‘Klaus’ Athanasiadis (PAOK), Nikos Karelis (Panathinaikos).___TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Zaha to remain at Palace after failing to seal summer exit

first_imgCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson expects Wilfried Zaha to return to the club after failing to seal a transfer away from Selhurst Park. The Ivory Coast international had been constantly linked with a move over the summer window. Everton saw a £70 million ($85m) plus players bid for the forward rejected, while  Arsenal were also interested in his services before signing Nicolas Pepe.  Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Ultimately, however, no deal could be struck, and Zaha will line up for the Eagles in the upcoming Premier League season. And Hodgson expects his charge to overcome his disappointment and remain committed to his current club.”It’s been well documented that he’s wanted to leave but it has not worked out for him in that respect. We expect him to come back and do what he does,” the former England boss signalled to Sky Sports. Zaha is reportedly upset at Palace’s refusal to accept transfer overtures this summer, having filed a transfer request. But Hodgson pointed out that he would have to vent his frustrations with the club’s owners rather than himself.”His beef is with the owners and the chairman. They haven’t been able to work a deal out for him,” he said. Zaha, 26, moved from his native Ivory Coast to Croydon at the age of four and joined local side Palace at 12. He left south London in 2013 for an abortive spell with Manchester United but rejoined the Eagles less than two years later, making himself a favourite at Selhurst Park. In 2018-19 he hit 10 goals in 34 Premier League appearances to finish as the club’s second-top scorer behind Luka Milivojevic, as a strong finish to the season saw Palace seal a comfortable mid-table position. His club form has also seen him become a regular for Ivory Coast in recent seasons, scoring twice at this summer’s African Cup of Nations to help his nation to the quarter-finals, where they lost out on penalties to eventual champions Algeria.last_img read more

Ettore Bugatti’s Incredible Story Lives On in Pur Sang Argentina’s Type 35B

first_imgPrevious This 1949 Barn Find Coupe Was Resurrected As a 638-Horsepower Hellraiser Next Watch This Bugatti Chiron Shatter a World Speed Record at More Than 300 MPH 1 of 15 A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing center_img Editors’ Recommendations 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now It’s time for an automotive history lesson.Turn back the clock to 1924. Ettore Bugatti, an Italian-born French designer, had just put the finishing touches on his latest project, the Type 35 prototype. In the six years that followed, the Type 35 would become the company’s most successful race car — reportedly winning more motorsport competitions than any other model from any manufacturer in history.To put a number on it, the Type 35 is estimated to have won over 1,000 races. Among the victories, the Type 35 won the 1926 Grand Prix World Championship, five consecutive Targa Florio victories (1925-1929), and the inaugural Monaco Grand Prix in 1929.Some of the most iconic pre-WWII drivers spent time behind the wheel of the Type 35, including Rene Dreyfus, Louis Chiron (whose name graces the latest Bugatti supercar), and Pierre Veyron (another name we won’t soon forget).Around the time of the second World War, exclusive European cars began trickling into South America. Without a steady supply of spare parts, the region was forced to create infrastructure to reproduce its own.Decades later, a revival began in Argentina. Skills that had been passed down through generations were used to restore these legendary race cars. Pur Sang, which means “pure blood” or “thoroughbred” in French, began specializing in pre-WWII models during the 1980s. To create the most meticulous restorations, Pur Sang made its own tools for production based on original blueprints for the Type 35 engine and other components.The Pur Sang Argentina Type 35B is the result of that labor. Using the same techniques as Ettore himself, the restored Type 35 is a perfect recreation of the original. From the hand-turned finishes on the instrument panel to the English wheel-made carriage, to the original square bolts. Every detail is to spec and every car made to order.There are a few modern touches, however. CNC machining ensures accuracy and repeatability for critical components. Ettore was a mastermind of several forward-thinking engineering practices, including the first-ever aluminum alloy wheels, integrated brake drums in the wheel spokes to dissipate heat, equalized brake bias at all four corners, a hollow front axle to reduce unspring weight, and a two-piece crankcase to make the 2.3-liter straight-eight engine part of the vehicle.Once customers place their order, they can begin customizing their personal Type 35B. Each build takes about 90 days and Pur Sang receives roughly 20 orders per year. To date, Pur Sang has delivered dozens of cars to over 20 countries worldwide. Prominent Pur Sang customers include members of the Bugatti family, members of royal families, and Jay Leno. The Fine Art of Restoring a 1974 Range Rover Classiclast_img read more

Ministers Take Green Economy Tour to Annapolis Royal

first_imgCreating environmental sustainability and economic growth are essential to the future prosperity of Nova Scotia. That is the message Environment Minister Mark Parent and Economic Development Minister Angus MacIsaac delivered to business and community leaders in Annapolis Royal today, Aug. 25, while promoting the importance of a green economy. “So far this summer, I’ve visited five communities around the province and listened to the exciting things they are working on to promote economic and environmental success in Nova Scotia,” said Mr. Parent. “I can’t help but feel excited and optimistic that Nova Scotians are positioning themselves to be world leaders in the green economy.” Mr. MacIsaac advised business and community leaders about the economic value of environmental management and protection. “Protecting the environment is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense,” said Mr. MacIsaac. “Our communities and businesses play a pivotal role in achieving our environmental and economic goals.” Regional development authorities are supporting the green economy tour. The ministers’ next joint visit will be in Bridgewater in September. Environmental management and protection is one of government’s five immediate priorities. Nova Scotia’s Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act sets out 21 far-reaching goals for the province. They range from reduced air emissions and waste, to new energy standards for buildings and increased protection of land and water. The act is a vital companion to the province’s economic development strategy, Opportunities for Sustainable Prosperity. It will help the province achieve economic performance at or above the national average by the year 2020 and build a foundation for continued growth. Reports detailing the province’s progress towards meeting commitments in the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act and in Opportunities for Sustainable Prosperity were released in May, showcasing government’s commitment to making Nova Scotia one of the greenest, healthiest, and most economically sustainable environments in the world by 2020. More information on the act and its progress report are available on the Department of Environment’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/nse . The second annual progress report for Opportunities for Sustainable Prosperity is available on the Department of Economic Development’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/econ/ofsp .last_img read more

Borough Assembly Shoots Down Mayors Vetoes

first_imgLast week, Matanuska Susitna Borough mayor Larry DeVilbiss threatened to veto line items in the Borough budget.. and last night [wednesday] he did just that. But the Borough Assembly had a different plan.  Mayor DeVilbiss presented the Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly on Wednesday with a veto document outlining seven budget items that he considers unnecessary spending. DeVilbiss said he wants to keep Borough spending to the limited powers granted to the Borough, and “hold the line on grants that go outside those powers.”“The grant process, which I am suggesting, is a wide-open door that needs to change.”, DeVilbiss told the panel, adding that grants are “the easiest money to get in this state, with no limits on how much or what for. ”First item on the mayor’s hit list, $106, 000 dollars in grants to the cities of Palmer, Wasilla and Houston.Assemblymembers quickly voted to override that one, and went on to override mayoral vetoes against grants for a Sexual Assault Response Team for Wasilla, and for the Youth Court.But the veto against a $150,000 grant for the Alaska Scholastic Clay Target Program was sustained. This item caused the greatest debate of the evening, but gained only four votes in support of an override. Assemblymember Steve Colligan supported the override, saying the grant, which would fund the purchase of land for a shooting range, would only be a one – time ask and would benefit kids.“But I’ll remind you that this year we passed through $200,000  and some for a kitchen at a ski facility, we’ve invested $ 4,000,000  at a Nordic ski facility, and we’re paving the road there, for that group of young folks. And all sorts of other things, and as was pointed out, we’ve had [target shooting ]Olympic champions and the like, and I don’t think that this competes with the adult shooting ranges, over time I think it will actually augment it. ” Colligan said.But Assemblymember Jim Sykes had concerns about process, saying“Every other one of these proposals had some kind of process.. there was an ask. To me, this looks just like an end run around process, and that’s one of my main objectioAssemblymembers Matthew Beck and Barbara Doty joined Sykes in voting against the override.The shooting range funding was the only veto that stood. Vetoes against funding for Willow Fire Service Area, Houston’s Fire Hall and Big Lake’s Community Center failed.DeVilbiss expressed his disappointment, saying that Borough revenues are not the problem, but Borough spending is.“This wide open window, which was just a niche a few years ago, to help the libraries and the cities, has blossomed into a bundle of things that is going to keep getting bigger and bigger.”Borough spending and subsequent taxation has consequences to Borough property owners, DeVilbiss admonished, noting the thirty pages of foreclosure notices now going to print.last_img read more

The service had previously needed to log in to a separate system for each facility, but now archives the images, orders, technologist notes and patient information so that all are accessible from a single workstation/viewer.
