The action included cultural activities, book presentations and voluntary blood donations, ACN reported, cited by Efe.Cuban television broadcast a panel called “Fidel, a Soldier of Ideas” on the primetime show “The Round Table” with the participation of renowned scholars, journalists, sports people and other personalities.In a message to the Cuban leader during a phone conversation, Russia´s President Dmitri Medvedev wished Fidel a happy birthday and he said that he is an honourable example of the service to the homeland and the people.”“Because of this, you keep being the legendary commander and national leader for the new generations of Cubans,” said Medvedev, who stressed the “crucial contribution” by Fidel Castro to friendship and cooperation between Russia and Cuba.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

EPL: Aston Villa hold Man U at Old Trafford

first_imgRelatedPosts UEFA Nations League: Spain’s Gaya nets late goal to snatch draw with Germany PSG ponder Ighalo move ‘Strong’ De Gea under no extra pressure from Man U, says Solskjaer Manchester United squandered the chance to move into Champions League contention after being held to a 2-2 home draw by Aston Villa. For a substantial period in the first half, the visitors, who had lost 16 of their last 17 matches against established top-six opponents, controlled proceedings with a game plan centred around the influential Jack Grealish. Villa’s captain scored the opener and presented all manner of problems before Marcus Rashford forced an own goal from goalkeeper Tom Heaton minutes before the interval. When Victor Lindelof put United ahead midway through the second half, coming from behind to take the lead for the second successive Premier League match, that should have been the signal for them to see out the game. Instead of reaching their highest position since mid-September, which would have put them within six points of Chelsea, United had to settle for a point which lifted them into ninth. In truth they did not deserve victory, which would have papered over the cracks of another directionless performance, as it was Grealish who stole the show by demonstrating the absolute best of his talents. It was an effortless display from the Villa captain, particularly in the first half. Everything he did was intelligent and instinctive, hanging out on the left and then drifting inside with purpose, intent and a genuine threat. On the occasions when United’s players could get near him they could only foul but the goal he scored was brilliant in its execution, even if the apparent ease with which he skipped past Andreas Pereira was something of a concern. Having collected an 11th-minute cross from Anwar El Ghazi, who injured himself in the process and took no further part, he cut back onto his right foot and curled a delightful shot over David De Gea and into the top corner. The 24-year-old has now been directly involved in seven Premier League goals this season (three goals and four assists), the most of any English midfielder. Even the loss of El Ghazi failed to halt Villa’s progress as his replacement Trezeguet forced the ball over the line in a goalmouth scramble – again created by Grealish – only for it to be chalked off by an offside flag which had gone up a considerable time earlier. Rashford had been one of the few United bright spots of the first half, shooting at Heaton and then bundling a shot wide, as the forward line fed off scraps chasing long balls. However, a striker with 10 goals in his previous 11 matches for club and country does not need many more chances and things become easier when opportunities come gift-wrapped. Misjudgements from Mings, in delaying his clearance, and Heaton, having to concede a corner to avoid sliding out of the area with the ball in his hands, allowed Pereira to swing over a cross for Rashford’s header to hit the far post and go in off the goalkeeper. United finally turned up for the second half with a weaving run from the previously anonymous Anthony Martial forcing Heaton into a reflex save, with Juan Mata’s penalty claim turned down in the same attack. The game appeared to change in the space of 60 seconds as a sliding Grealish failed to properly connect with Trezeguet’s deflected pass at one end and Lindelof headed home Fred’s cross at the other. But the lead lasted less than four minutes as Matt Targett’s chipped pass caught Brandon Williams hanging back as the United raced out defending a short free-kick and Mings, along with Trezeguet, was left alone to volley past De Gea. Martial somehow scooped over from three yards but their momentum had been interrupted and there was no recovering it.Tags: Aston Villa FCDavid De GeaManchester United FClast_img read more

Solid McIlory takes Dubai title

first_img The Northern Irishman won by three shots ahead of Alex Noren with a final round 70 securing his 10th European Tour title. Six years ago, a teenage McIlroy captured his first professional title at the event and after coming close a couple of times since, the 25-year-old was delighted. World number one Rory McIlroy admitted he was looking for the solid rather than the spectacular as he won the Dubai Desert Classic for a second time. “It is always great coming back here, it is nice to put my name on trophy once again,” he said at the trophy presentation. “I felt like I was finishing second every time I was teeing it up, so it was time for a change, obviously the only way I wanted to go was one better and thankfully I was able to do that today. “I played very nicely all week. I did what I needed to do today to keep my nose in front and be able to win. “I still get nervous, a little tentative, we’ve seen what can happen to big leads. “I was making sure I wasn’t making any mistakes and to play a solid round.” Noren, who played just two events in 2014 due to tendinitis in both wrists, finished second after an impressive six-under final round of 65 saw him leap up the leaderboard from eighth to finish on 19 under par. Noren was not thinking about victory at the start of the day and after missing so much time due to injury of late, the Swede was delighted with his showing. “It was an amazing day, an amazing week,” Noren, who finished ninth at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters last week, told Sky Sports. “I missed it so much it was really nice. I never, ever thought of winning. He (McIlroy) is playing so good, I was trying to get a nice finish. “I just tried to keep making birdies and keep up with the other guys.” Stephen Gallacher, who won the tournament both in 2013 and 2014, failed to replicate the form he showed on the first two days. Gallacher finished with four birdies in the back nine, but dropped shots on the first and 14th meant he finished third on 16 under. England’s Andy Sullivan failed to finish strongly with a bogey on 15 bringing an end to his challenge, while a dropped shot on the last meant he finished in fourth, with a two-under final round of 70. Martin Kaymer was the day’s big mover as he closed with a final-round 64 to jump 30 places and finish level with Sullivan on 15 under par. France’s Gary Stal also finished in fifth after four under on the final day, with Bernd Wiesberger also finishing 15 under. Morten Orum Madsen, who started the day in second, was left ruing a seven on the opening hole and two dropped shots on the back nine as he finished on 15 under. Graeme McDowell closed with a 70 to finish 14 under par, good enough for ninth. His countryman McIlroy never looked like losing control. He only hit four fairways in regulation on the third day, with his superb play with the putter seeing him through. And McIlroy needed his hot club to get through the first unscathed after another loose tee shot, while good work in the sand on the third saw him claim his first birdie of the day on three. The Northern Irishman dropped his first shot in two days on the seventh. The group behind were closing, with Madsen moving back up the field with three birdies while Noren was also moving up the field after four-under-par scores in the opening seven. Another sand save from McIlroy, this time on the 10th, saw him pick up another birdie before another poor approach, this time on 12, meant he had to work hard again to save par. Sullivan birdied 13 and Madsen 14 to keep the pressure on the leader, while Lee Westwood, who began the day in third, was having a nightmare, with a bogey at six, a double bogey at nine and another dropped shot at 12 meaning the end of his challenge. He finished with a level-par 72 to finish ninth. McIlroy’s approach on 13 was far more palatable, as he claimed another birdie to stretch his lead back to five. Noren made birdies at 17 and 18 and a final round of 65 would have been well received after spending so long away from the sport late year. Madsen bogeyed both 15 and 16 to end his challenge and with McIlroy consistently making pars, the title was his. Press Associationlast_img read more

Camp Notes: Dino Babers awaits opt-out decisions from multiple players

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.The media won’t have access to Syracuse’s training camp practices this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the football team is organizing regular Zoom interviews with head coach Dino Babers and select players while also providing film from the Ensley Athletic Center. With “Camp Notes,” The Daily Orange’s beat reporters bring the latest news, observations and analysis as the Orange gear up for an unprecedented 2020 season. Follow along here and on Twitter.The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.Less than a month before Syracuse football is scheduled to take the field for its first game at North Carolina, head coach Dino Babers still doesn’t know which of his players will be playing this season and which will opt-out. The Orange have had only one player, redshirt freshman defensive lineman Cooper Dawson, opt-out so far. But Babers has said on numerous occasions that multiple players are still “on the fence.” He’s not sure who will be available, though quarterback Tommy DeVito, fullback and tight end Chris Elmore, defensive back Andre Cisco and offensive lineman Airon Servais have all said they intend to play the 2020 season, if it happens.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“From a teammate standpoint, all I can do is respect their decision, listen to what they have to say, listen to their reasons,” Elmore said on teammates potentially opting-out. “They’re making decisions as grown men, what they feel is best for them and their family and their future.”The NCAA’s Board of Governors will meet Friday to determine if players who opt-out of the 2020 season will be granted another year of eligibility. While the NCAA’s council recommended granting the extra year, it’s not official yet, leaving players unsure of their decision, Babers said. The head coach said he’s taken multiple polls to see who’s in and who’s out, but the situation is fluctuating daily.“I’ve taken a poll, and the poll is always changing,” Babers said. “Some is over COVID-19, some is uncertainty over what the options are because those options haven’t come down from above us.”With classes at SU beginning Aug. 24, students from states across the country are completing their quarantine periods and arriving on campus.“That’s going to be the real key,” Babers said about students returning. “During the day time, you look at young people, they do a fantastic job. What they do at night affects what happens during the day.”The PAC-12 and Big Ten cited health concerns — most notably myocarditis, which was present in multiple athletes — as one reason for postponing their fall football seasons last week. When media asked DeVito last week if myocarditis specifically came up, he said no, but that in general, athletic staff had presented medical concerns to him. Babers said Monday that players and their families have discussed the health risks of the virus with medical experts.“It’s like anything else. We know the risk of it all,” DeVito said. “Obviously not to the fullest because it is a new virus. The medical teams are still trying to figure things out because nothing is 100%.”He added: “We have not spoken about what’s been going on with those Big Ten athletes.”Babers credited his players for holding SU Athletics accountable on the testing shortfall. Director of Athletics John Wildhack stated Friday that SU will be testing its athletes once per week, instead of every other week as it had done before. A miscommunication between the staff and the athletes on this protocol led to them sit out practices last week until it was cleared up and the players were tested. Once the season begins, each athlete will be tested three times per week, starting the week of Sept. 7. The Orange announced Friday that they didn’t have any active COVID-19 cases among their entire athletic department and that the football team has had five positive cases since the summer training program began.Before the season can begin, though, Friday’s NCAA decision on future eligibility could be the latest turning point on the status of the 2020 football season.

How BetConstruct is boosting the bookmaker offer with in-house esports

first_img BetInvest: The benefits of separating esports betting markets August 7, 2020 Esports is continuing to develop a strong connection with the betting industry, with countless companies now initiating strategies to maximise the sector’s potential.BetConstruct is one such firm finding a niche opportunity in this growing market. The iGaming solutions provider has its own in-house esports division, allowing bookmakers to offer esports to its customers throughout the day.The company’s head of esports, Eduard Avagyan, told SBC News about how this idea came about, the process of selecting esport athletes, and how integrity is maintained throughout.He stated: “The interest in video games took off back in the 90s. Since then there has been an ever increasing interest. Esports is a unique product in so many ways. Its player base is huge and means that any person with a passion for games and who has the appropriate set of equipment can become a pro-gamer. “It attracts significant investments and sponsorships from popular brands, as the bulk of the audience is made up of young adults who happen to be the top consumers today. “Millions of viewers log in to live streaming portals to follow esports events, showing how much potential the product has. BetConstruct noticed the opportunity long ago, and now offers in-house esports; live streaming broadcasted from our studios situated in Yerevan, Armenia. The games played by our e-athletes include eFootball, eBasketball, eTennis and Mortal Kombat.” Unlike traditional sports betting, there is no need for an official tournament organiser to liaise with. In this case, the games are run by BetConstruct with the players selected by the firm. However, it is integral that integrity is kept throughout the process, especially when selecting players for teams. BetConstruct’s solution to solve this issue is to initiate qualifiers to ensure that the player’s skill is of a high enough level to warrant people betting on them.Avagyan explained: “The main criteria we have for our e-athletes is motivation and passion for the game. Their skills and motivation are decided by qualifiers which also help in identifying team’s strength and eligibility for tournaments.“The esports division is kept separate from the core betting business in order to maintain integrity, whilst the Risk Management department monitors all betting activity.“Live data for esports can also be provided only through the API connected to the platform where the tournament is taking place, which means that there is no need for scouts.”For an initiative like in-house esports to be a success, the demand has to be apparent not only to the consumers but to bookmakers as well, as ultimately those companies are the ones which will invest in these solutions. BetConstruct firmly believes that this fledgling sector has the potential to provide additional business for bookmakers, specifically in the Gen Z market, which is why it offers such an extensive amount of content.“It’s a multi-hundred-million business so there definitely is a demand for esports,” added Avagyan. “One must keep pace with the updates in the games. Take the popular Fortnite for example; the game has updates at least twice a month. While the operators may be unaware of them, it is our responsibility, as their dedicated provider, to ensure high player engagement and coverage of all possible tournaments and events.In addition to this in-house offer, BetConstruct provides live betting on 24,000+ esport matches from around the world from 12 different game types.Given that esports was thrown into prominence by the growth of technology, it has bypassed certain sporting traditions, particularly when it comes to streaming certain genres of games. Most esports are viewed on various open platforms such as Twitch, Youtube Gaming and Mixer, meaning that there are few protocols with regards to what games betting companies can stream. In turn, this means an enhanced betting experience with more widespread coverage and a greater demand for in-play odds.Avagyan added: “The suitability is mostly decided by the demand and popularity of the event. The tournaments are divided into categories – Premier Events, Major Events and Minor Events. The audience depends directly on the quality of the event.“Given the sporting world’s recent cancellations due to the coronavirus outbreak, more companies will be looking to esports in order to provide betting content for its players. BetConstruct’s foresight to begin working on its esports solutions portfolio before the majority of other firms will undoubtedly help it to grow, whilst also providing the industry with much needed content for the future.

Union responds to MLB: ‘Players want to play’

first_imgThe players have had it.After weeks of unproductive back and forth did nothing but define each side’s entrenched positions, MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark flatly rejected Saturday the latest proposal from MLB, calling for a 72-game season for less than prorated pay.The players’ union offered no counterproposal as it had twice previously, seemingly resigned to an abbreviated season mandated by commissioner Rob Manfred.“Players want to play. It’s who we are and what we do,” Clark began a statement responding to ownership’s proposal and offering no counter. Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone “It unfortunately appears that further dialogue with the league would be futile. It’s time to get back to work. Tell us when and where.”Over the past weeks, the two sides have offered very different views of what a 2020 season could look like. Owners maintain they will lose money on regular-season games played without fans in attendance and have demanded players take paycuts to help them absorb the losses while keeping an eye on the prize — postseason TV revenue.Players maintain they have already sacrificed by agreeing to prorated pay for an abbreviated regular season and have sought to play as many regular-season games as possible — even offering to pad the schedule with doubleheaders and extend the postseason into November — under the restrictive conditions necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic.This weekend’s exchange — including a biting letter from MLB’s chief legal officer Dan Halem to MLBPA’s lead negotiator Bruce Meyer on Friday — makes the likely outcome fairly clear. Ownership maintains it can mandate a shortened season (48 to 55 games for which the players would be due full prorated pay). The union has positioned itself to file a grievance that ownership had not negotiated in good faith should Manfred go that route.“Since March, the Association has made it clear that our No.1 focus is playing the fullest season possible, as soon as possible, as safely as possible,” Clark said in his statement Saturday. “Players agreed to billions in monetary concessions as a means to that end, and in the face of repeated media leaks and misdirection we made additional proposals to inject new revenues into the industry – proposals that would benefit the owners, players, broadcast partners, and fans alike. “It’s now become apparent that these efforts have fallen upon deaf ears. In recent days, owners have decried the supposed unprofitability of owning a baseball team and the Commissioner has repeatedly threatened to schedule a dramatically shortened season unless players agree to hundreds of millions in further concessions. Our response has been consistent that such concessions are unwarranted, would be fundamentally unfair to players, and that our sport deserves the fullest 2020 season possible. These remain our positions today, particularly in light of new reports regarding MLB’s national television rights – information we requested from the league weeks ago but were never provided.”Clark’s response came shortly after reports that MLB had reached a $1 billion deal with Turner Sports to air future postseason games (following the expiration of the current TV deal in 2021). That would represent a 40% increase for MLB teams.Also Saturday, Meyer reportedly responded to Halem’s letter with one of his own, accusing MLB of “underhanded tactics to circumvent the union” and listing examples of what the union considers bad-faith negotiating by MLB.“It is unfair to leave players and the fans hanging at this point, and further delay risks compromising health and safety,” Meyer wrote. “We demand that you inform us of your plans by close of business on Monday, June 15.”In MLB’s response Saturday, the rhetoric continued.“We are disappointed that the MLBPA has chosen not to negotiate in good faith over resumption of play after MLB has made three successive proposals that would provide players, Clubs and our fans with an amicable resolution to a very difficult situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” MLB’s statement read. “The MLBPA understands that the agreement reached on March 26th was premised on the parties’ mutual understanding that the players would be paid their full salaries only if play resumed in front of fans, and that another negotiation was to take place if Clubs could not generate the billions of dollars of ticket revenue required to pay players.  The MLBPA’s position that players are entitled to virtually all the revenue from a 2020 season played without fans is not fair to the thousands of other baseball employees that Clubs and our office are supporting financially during this very difficult 2020 season.“We will evaluate the Union’s refusal to adhere to the terms of the March Agreement, and after consulting with ownership, determine the best course to bring baseball back to our fans.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Who is Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher? The Irish wonderkid eager to make waves at Anfield

first_imgHe excelled as a goalkeeper and soon earned national recognition, representing the Cork Youth League in nationwide tournaments before going on to play for Ireland at youth level.Liverpool signed Kelleher from Ringmahon in the summer of 2015 and he has ascended from the Under-18 team into the Under-23 side, as well as becoming a member of the first-team squad.The summer of 2018 saw the Cork native take a massive stride into the mind of Klopp, who brought the teenager along with the first team to compete in the International Champions Cup.He replaced Loris Karius at half-time in a 2-1 win over Manchester City before keeping a clean sheet after coming off the bench in the 4-1 win against Manchester United. He also featured in a friendly victory over Blackburn Rovers.Kelleher’s progress was duly rewarded in August that year, when he put pen to paper on a long-term deal.“I’ve been doing the same things but getting better every day,” he told the club’s official website. “Training at Melwood, you improve much more. Alisson and Simon and Kamil are here and we train to the highest level every day.”In: Michael Obafemi, Caoimhin KelleherOut: Shane Long, Derrick WilliamsNew call up for training: #IRLU19 captain & @ManUtd defender Lee O’Connor.Full squad update: https://t.co/2vdDwP6AN1 #COYBIG pic.twitter.com/fORxdnSi0g— FAIreland ⚽️🇮🇪 (@FAIreland) November 12, 2018At international level, he has represented the Boys in Green Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 teams.Having been included in the senior panel on a number of occasions, he will be aiming to put pressure on Darren Randolph in the coming years.Kelleher hails from a football-loving family and his brother Fiacre is a former Ireland youth international who currently plays for Macclesfield Town, having previously played for Celtic and Oxford United.What does Jurgen Klopp think of him?While Klopp has a strong array of goalkeeper options at Anfield, it is clear that he rates Kelleher very highly.”He is an outstanding talent. Outstanding,” the German coach said shortly after Kelleher signed a new deal in 2018. “[He is] very cool with the ball, you saw that in pre-season when he played in front of 100,000 people, that he wasn’t bothered about that which is a very important skill to have.”For most of his youth he was an outfield player, he has fantastic reactions. If nothing serious happens, he will have a really fantastic future.”I don’t know how many really good goalkeepers that Ireland have but one more is never a big problem. I like him a lot and he will be in our squad.”How do you pronounce Caoimhin Kelleher’s name?Caoimhin is the Irish equivalent to the English name Kevin and it is pronounced ‘ Kwee-Veen’.In some parts of Ireland the pronunciation of Caoimhin is slightly different, with ‘ Kee-Vin ‘ sometimes heard. Should Kelleher continue his ascent and carve out a career for himself in senior football, commentators are sure to have difficulties pronouncing his name.Those unfamiliar with Irish names (which can be famously baffling to those outside of Ireland) may recoil aghast when confronted with the collection of letters forming the Liverpool starlet’s first name.You can hear Kelleher’s pronunciation in the video above. However, the Reds are also priming themselves for the future and featured in the ranks of the senior team this season is 20-year-old shot-stopper Caoimhin Kelleher, just a few years after his arrival on Merseyside.Indeed, the youngster could well be called into action sooner rather than later, with injuries affecting Reds goalkeepers Alisson and Adrian.For those unfamiliar with Kelleher, Goal brings you everything you need to know about him, including his previous clubs, experience and, crucially, how to pronounce his name!Who is Caoimhin Kelleher?Caoimhin Kelleher is a goalkeeper who plays for Premier League side Liverpool and the Republic of Ireland at international level.He was born on November 23, 1998 in Cork, a city in the south of Ireland and came through the ranks of his local team Ringmahon Rangers.Interestingly, he began his playing days for Ringmahon as a striker before making the transition to goalkeeper at the age of 14 after the team’s original net-minder quit.A former coach remarked in an interview with the Cork Evening Echo that Kelleher regularly scored 20 and 30 goals a season before donning the gloves permanently. The arrival of Alisson from Roma in a record £65m ($84m) transfer in 2018-19 means that Liverpool’s chronic goalkeeper woes have finally been dealt with.Jurgen Klopp has found a solution to a long-running problem in the form of the Brazil number one, whose prowess between the posts means he should make the position his own at Anfield in the coming years.

Kelleher’s diving is rated 58 and his positioning is slightly lower at 55, while his speed is clearly his weakest skill.With a price tag of roughly £200k in the EA Sports game, he might well be considered a bargain buy, particularly if he manages to live up to expectations.last_img read more
