Harry Kane talks of pride as he is confirmed Golden Boot winner

first_imgTwo of his goals against Panama came from penalties as the Central American side were punished for ill discipline and a third deflected in off his heel following a Ruben Loftus‑Cheek strike.Kane expressed disappointment he was not able to score in England’s final three games but was celebrating the achievement. “It’s been a fantastic campaign for me personally and the team as well,” the England captain said. “But there’s still stuff I can improve on. Obviously I can get better. England’s Harry Kane wins World Cup 2018 Golden Boot after scoring six goals Read more Share on Messenger Harry Kane news Harry Kane says he has now proved he can perform on every major stage in football after winning the World Cup Golden Boot. The 24-year-old scored six goals at Russia 2018, holding off competition from Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and France’s Kylian Mbappé among others to win the trophy. “I feel like there have been games in this tournament when I could have done better but that’s all part of the learning curve.”Kane has flown home but expects Fifa to send the trophy to him. He will store it at his home in London alongside his two Premier League golden boot accolades from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. “It will go with the other two, the Premier League ones,” he said. “It’s a big achievement. Not many people get to say they’ve won a Golden Boot at a World Cup. I’m sure they’ll send it to me in a nice secure package.”Meanwhile John Stones says he will watch England’s seven games in Russia back in full. The Manchester City defender was one of England’s standout performers and was singled out for praise by Gareth Southgate after his performance against Belgium in the third-place play-off. But he was in a self-analytical mood afterwards, reflecting on his header which was saved in extra time in the semi-final against Croatia as well as allowing Mario Mandzukic to sneak in behind him for the winner.“I could have done better in a lot of things,” he said. “If that header against Croatia had been two feet closer – things like that. In any situation, making a misplaced pass, it’s difficult because if you make a misplaced pass teams are so good now they invariably punish you, so you study everything little thing. Share on Pinterest 17 things we learned from Russia 2018 – World Cup review Share on LinkedIn “Look at Belgium,” he said. “Their counterattacking was frightening at times. I wouldn’t like to come up against that every week. I am self-critical but I don’t want to be too negative about the whole tournament. There are ifs and buts in any field of life. We should be so positive after this experience. How we have been is the way forward for England. We will take all the good things out of it. Everyone has enjoyed it, coming up against teams who are not easy to play against.“We never underestimated anyone and knew that every team had their own qualities,” he added. “Some were defensively solid, others had a great set piece; in the main we dealt with those moments. We set a lot of markers and should be really proud of that.” Share via Emailcenter_img Share on WhatsApp World Cup Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Kane scored five of his six goals in the group stages, including a hat-trick in England’s 6-1 rout of Panama. He said that after the disappointment of Euro 2016, when he failed to score and the team crashed out against Iceland, it was a welcome tonic.“I said before coming into this tournament that I wanted to prove I could do it on these stages,” Kane said. “The Euros were disappointing. If anything I wanted to prove to myself I could score at this level. I’ve scored at every other level and it was important I did that.“I’m extremely proud and I’m sure I’ll look back in a few weeks’ time and take all these experiences in. It’s hard to do that now because we are still disappointed.”The award puts Kane in exalted company, with Eusébio, Garrincha and the Brazilian Ronaldo among the previous winners of the Golden Boot. He demonstrated a lethal instinct in front of goal in England’s opening game against Tunisia with two goals including a stoppage-time header which played a vital part in the team advancing from the group.

Province Moves To Ban WholeTree Harvesting

first_imgThe province will ban whole-tree and full-tree harvesting to ensure that the forestry sector remains sustainable for the future. Whole-tree harvesting removes the entire tree, including stem, branches, stump and roots, out of a forest site to a landing or roadside. In full-tree harvesting, the stump and roots remain at the forest site, but the stem and branches are removed. “Nova Scotians clearly told us they were opposed to both of these practices and we are honouring our commitment to ban them,” said Natural Resources Minister Charlie Parker. “These practices were allowed to go on for too long, and we are making the right decision for the health of the forests and the sustainability of the forest industry.” In December 2010, the province said it would stop the removal of whole trees from the forests so that woody debris would remain to nurture new growth. The Path We Share, the province’s natural resources strategy, promised to establish rules for whole-tree harvesting and to incorporate them into the Code of Forest Practice. The Christmas tree industry is exempt from these rules, as are non-forestry operations such as land-clearing, real estate, and agriculture. The province reviewed full tree harvesting practices across Canada and related scientific literature. “Ending whole-tree harvesting is a very positive step forward for the forests of Nova Scotia,” said Tom Miller, owner of Bearwood Farms, woodlot owner of the year in 2005, and a wood harvester for more than 35 years. “This is a good news story for the future sustainability of our woodlands. The province is to be commended for their handling of this issue.” Amendments to the Wildlife Habitat and Watercourses Protection Regulations will be made accordingly. “Our next step is to give the public time to review and comment on these proposed regulations, as required under the Forests Act,” said Mr. Parker. The public may submit comments until Aug. 20 on the Natural Resources website at . Whole-tree operations in Nova Scotia harvest less than 100,000 green metric tonnes. That represents less than four per cent of the total annual provincial tree harvest. The province has worked closely with woodlot owners, harvesters and other forestry stakeholders for the past three years to improve harvesting methods, and invested in the sector by providing funding for training; all while dealing with significant changes in the mills sector.last_img read more

UN and donors call for 236 million to assist the victims in

In a joint statement issued after the one-day donor alert meeting in Geneva, the UN, the United States and the European Union said hundreds of thousands of lives will be at risk in Darfur “unless immediate protection and relief are provided.”The triumvirate warned that the situation in Darfur, an impoverished region in Sudan’s west, is so dire that donors will have to maintain their support at least until 2006. Civilians still face the threat of attack from the Janjaweed militias and many others are spilling into neighbouring Chad to escape the violence.Today’s meeting, organized by the UN, included representatives from 36 countries, including Sudan, as well as from the African Union, the European Union, the League of Arab States and many non-governmental organizations.At a press briefing following the meeting, Jan Egeland, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, said the participants agreed to try to achieve a series of relief targets for the next 90 days.These include: feeding up to one million people in Darfur; providing basic drugs and health care services to 90 per cent of the estimated one million people internally displaced; providing boreholes, water pumps and water tanks in camps for the internally displaced; and helping refugees in Chad build temporary shelters.Mr. Egeland also said that civilians continue to report that the Janjaweed are committing atrocities such as murders, rapes and the destruction and pillaging of villages, despite the signing of a ceasefire agreement in April.The joint statement of the UN, US and EU urged all parties to respect the ceasefire, and said the Sudanese Government had obligations to ensure the safety of its citizens. It also called for humanitarian workers to be allowed unimpeded access to Darfur.More than a million people are internally displaced within Darfur, up to 150,000 refugees have fled to Chad and at least another 700,000 people have been severely affected in Darfur since fighting broke out there early last year between the Sudanese Government and two rebel groups.A UN human rights report released last month found that numerous atrocities had been committed by the Janjaweed militias, a loose collection of apparently Arab fighters, that were recruited, armed and sponsored by Khartoum.The UN World Food Programme’s (WFP) Executive Director, James T. Morris, said acute malnutrition was becoming a major problem, especially among children, in the camps of refugees and internally displaced people.At the Geneva meeting the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said $46 million is needed simply to help the thousands of displaced children in Darfur.Acting High Commissioner for Human Rights, Bertrand Ramcharan, also told the meeting that he has asked his office to send six human rights officers to Darfur as soon as possible to monitor the situation. Two extra officers will be based in Khartoum. read more

The Worst College Football Game In The Worst College Football Town

Alabama vs. Auburn, Florida vs. Florida State, Michigan vs. Ohio State. Those are the types of college football rivalries from which sports legends are made. This weekend on the northern tip of Manhattan in New York City (known for having the lowest percentage of college football fans in the nation), a different type of history will be produced. The 0-8 Cornell Big Red will visit the 0-8 Columbia Lions. It’s a game sure to be memorable not because the two teams are so good, but because both of them are so bad.I’m a Columbia Lions football fan. I listen to their games on WKCR-FM. I’m attending Saturday’s game against Cornell. I went to every home game from 1994 to 2000, and I treasure an autographed photo with then-Lions and later NFL star Marcellus Wiley.But Columbia enters the game with statistics that resemble those of a peewee football team dropped into the NFL. Columbia has scored more than seven points in only one game this season. Last week against Harvard, the Lions suffered the ultimate embarrassment: getting shut out 45-0.The away team hasn’t been much better. Only against Princeton has Cornell put up more than 16 points in a game, and the Big Red still managed to score fewer points in that game, 27, than Columbia’s highest point total this year (28). Last week, Cornell went down 42-7 against Dartmouth, and that wasn’t even their worst defeat of the season so far.Not surprisingly, of the 121 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS, formerly known as Division I-AA) for which the NCAA provides statistics, Columbia is dead last in offensive points per game at 8.6. Cornell is not far behind, at No. 113, scoring only 12.9 points per game. In point differential (points scored minus points allowed), Columbia ranks No. 118 with -31.2. Cornell is ranked No. 114 with -21.5.The wretchedness goes beyond the scoreboard, though. In each facet of the game, these two teams have been exceptionally awful.The Lions rank last in the FCS with 51.3 rushing yards per game (YPG). Cornell comes in at No. 117 with 88 YPG.When it comes to passing, Columbia and Cornell are deceptively bad. Columbia has passed for 221.6 YPG (good for a rank of No. 52), while Cornell has passed for 179.3 YPG (good for No. 88). Of course, both teams have almost always been behind, so they have to pass in an effort to catch up. Passer efficiency, which takes into account pass attempts, completions, interceptions, touchdowns and yards, places Columbia No. 120 out of 121 and Cornell just slightly better at No. 103.The defenses aren’t much better. Columbia has given up 273.8 YPG on the ground (No. 120). Cornell has done better, at 189.1 YPG, but that still ranks only 84th. In passing defense, Columbia ranks No. 100 with 246.9 YPG, and Cornell lags at No. 106 with 262 YPG. In passer efficiency defense, Columbia comes in at No. 100 and Cornell at No. 118.Finally, there’s special teams. Both teams have made only two field goals all year, and both of those came in the same game for each team. Columbia and Cornell rank No. 111 and No. 112, respectively, with just 16.96 and 16.91 yards per kickoff return. In yards per punt return, Columbia ranks No. 75 with 6.80, and Cornell ranks a pathetic No. 118 with just 2.29.All hope is not lost, however. The two teams excel in one notable category: punting. Columbia has punted an amazingly high 7.25 times per game, and Cornell has done so 6.63 times per game. Those are good enough to rank No. 6 and No. 16, respectively! And perhaps because they have gotten so much practice, Columbia has averaged 34.83 yards per punt, and Cornell 36.34. Those averages rank in the top half of the FCS, at Nos. 60 and 25.So, if you live in the New York metro area, are a big fan of punting and want to see two teams that cannot score or stop anyone else from scoring, you’re in luck. It’s sure to be a riveting affair in a city that just doesn’t care. read more

To cut costs UAF merges Journalism and Communications majors

first_imgOne of numerous cost saving realignments within the University of Alaska system, the University of Alaska Fairbanks Journalism and Communications departments have merged. Professor Charles Mason said the merger should save money, and shore up the journalism department, which has seen a declining number of majors in recent years.Listen Now ”The point of this merger is to have, probably, a smaller core faculty over the long run, but increase the number of majors in the two programs together so that it’s a single department with a reasonable number of majors and a pretty large number of students,” Mason said. “And the savings will come in through that.”Mason says the combined journalism-communications program has more than sixty majors, and a dozen graduate students. He said the merger, which includes plans for co-location at a single facility, has resulted in the elimination of an administrative job, but that no other cuts are currently planned. He noted that the department hopes to hire for an open journalism professor position.last_img read more
