Gnabry hits FOUR as Germans completely embarrass Tottenham

If you conceded seven goals at home you’re not on the ropes but down on the canvas and facing the count.

It needs a good overhaul. It needs a complete change. Maybe even go three at the back. “This is not working for Spurs, it’s not been working for weeks but this system is wrong. The tactics are wrong.

Here’s what he told BT Sport: “I don’t need too much time to explain. We played 30 mins well, started well, pressing high. But we were unlucky that we conceded in the first minute of the half.“They were very clinical. After we scored the penalty for two we had chances to score the third. But from the 83rd and 88th minute we conceded three more goals.“In football it can happen. Every single touch went in. We are very disappointed and very upset but we have to stay together. I think we are strong in our mentality.“Maybe you are bored about my speech but football is today not yesterday. It is always is about the show. You have to do it today and tomorrow. It is not about experiences and what happened three months ago.“We are disappointed. Every single touch from Bayern was clinical. They scored with every touch. It is tough to accept. You have to move on.“This type of situation you have to face. It is tough and you need to be strong and keep going. Stay together, help each other and be all together. When you receive this type of result it is important to bounce back and believe in yourself. It is the only way to recover.”Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:27 pmTHE SUN’S Neil Ashton was here at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to witness that hiding.You can read his take on it here as he writes how Spurs were “battered” and made to “look like novices”. Is this a job threatening result for Pochettino?@RioFerdy5: To be destroyed like this..

GPHC, Public Health Ministry wrong

first_imgDear Editor,Individuals and organisations, including the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP), are demanding there be an independent investigation in the deaths of three children at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). This demand is the right thing and an independent investigation should have been convened automatically, in accordance with standard protocols for the death of any child, under any circumstance. It is egregious that the GPHC is investigating itself. It is worrisome that the public and political parties must intervene and demand an independent investigation.The call for an independent investigation reflects the public outrage surrounding the deaths of three children at the GPHC. The GPHC continues to hide behind the refrain that they are investigating the deaths. The Minister and the Public Health Ministry, after more than a week of deafening silence, finally held a private media conference with a hand-picked reporter. She finally expressed condolences to the affected families and expressed satisfaction that GPHC is investigating the deaths. I am flabbergasted that the GPHC, the Public Health Ministry or the Public Health Minister seem oblivious that they are violating standard protocols.The present management of the GPHC clearly does not seem to be aware of the standard protocols for how the death of a child must be handled. These protocols were established as part of the Ministry of Health Act. The Public Health Ministry similarly appears to have forgotten what these protocols are. The Senior Minister of Public Health, Ms Volda Lawrence, is guilty of not being aware of the protocols and oblivious of her responsibility to ensure these protocols are rigidly applied. Now that PAHO has become engaged, I am hopeful that PAHO will remind them of those protocols. Guyana introduced a standard protocol more than a decade ago to ensure that the death of every child is investigated, not as an option, but an obligation.I was the Minister when the protocols were implemented. The protocols require an immediate report of the death of any child, no matter what the circumstances might have been, whether it was a preventable death or a non-preventable death. Every child death must be reported by the institution or the healthcare provider involved within 24 hours to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) whose responsibility it is to inform the Minister. The institution where the death occurred or where the child is taken must investigate the death without any delay and submit a report to the CMO within forty-eight hours. The Ministry has seven days to examine the institutional report and make further queries and then initiate an independent investigation if the Ministry deems it necessary. This protocol, therefore, avoids the hospital or doctors investigating themselves, thus avoiding any conflict of interest.Three children are dead and at the centre of the outrage are questions about the medicines used and how those medicines might have been administered. The GPHC only agreed to start an investigation after the parents expressed their fears that their children might have died, not from their illnesses, but from matters relating to the care they were receiving at the GPHC. Let me reiterate – I have always believed that healthcare providers always want to do the very best they can to provide quality care to the persons they care for. Still, something went wrong that led to the death of three children and there is suspicion relating to the safety of the medicines and how they were used.An independent investigation should have been immediately initiated, in accordance with the standard protocols. There was no need for anyone to demand an investigation. The fact that almost two weeks later, the GPHC insists it is still investigating and that the Minister has the temerity to tell the nation after almost two weeks of silence that the GPHC should be allowed to complete its investigation is a violation of the protocols and adds to the outrage surrounding the deaths of these children. What is more appalling is that the Minister and the GPHC are seeking praise for the inappropriate investigation being conducted. An independent investigation is what is required and the GPHC, the Public Health Ministry and the Minister have no say in this matter – it is required in accordance with standard protocol.At the time those protocols were introduced, the intention was clear – the death of every child requires an investigation so that we could learn lessons and work towards no repetition of whatever might be the weaknesses in the healthcare system. The GPHC was required to submit a report of its findings for each death within 48 hours and the Public Health Ministry was required to start an independent investigation which should have been completed already.When the institutions are investigating themselves, usually it is a dead end. Two examples will suffice. Around July 2017 a three-year-old died, after a yo-yo management between GPHC and a private institution. The GPHC insisted they were investigating. The Public Health Ministry said they were awaiting the GPHC report. On September 3, 2017, a one-month-old child died at the GPHC. The parents insisted the child died because of an overdose of antibiotics. Again, the GPHC and the Ministry insisted that the GPHC was conducting a thorough investigation. The nation is still awaiting those reports. Those investigations actually died a natural death.The fact that the standard protocol is not being used either means that there is a frightening ignorance of these protocols or that there is an ulterior motive.Sincerely,Dr Leslie Ramsammylast_img read more

BC Hockey misidentifies Flyers in announcing Coy Cup host Whitehorse

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – BC Hockey announced earlier today that the Fort St. John Flyers will not be hosting this coming year’s Coy Cup.In a release this afternoon, which misidentified the Flyers as the Fort St. John Yeti, BC Hockey says that the Whitehorse Huskies will be the hosts of the Coy in March 2017 at the Takhini Arena. The Flyers have won the Coy Cup for the past two years in a row.A screen capture of today's press release from BC Hockey awarding the 2017 Coy Cup to the Whitehorse Huskies.A screen capture of today’s press release from BC Hockey awarding the 2017 Coy Cup to the Whitehorse Huskies.- Advertisement -“We are looking forward to Whitehorse hosting the Coy Cup in March,” said BC Hockey’s Adult Male Coordinator, Trevor Bast in this afternoon’s release. “The Huskies have reignited Senior hockey in the community over the past year, and we know they will put on a great event.”“Whitehorse is a passionate hockey community and the support of the Huskies fan base is impressive,” said BC Hockey Chief Executive Officer, Barry Petrachenko. “We are confident Whitehorse will host an exceptional event and look forward to bringing this event to the Yukon.”Flyers General Manager Lee Hartman said that the decision came as a shock to the team, and aren’t sure why Yukon’s capital was awarded the rights to host the tournament. “Whitehorse hasn’t travelled for an away game since 2014 when they travelled here for a playdown with us,” said Hartman. “They’ve had the benefit of having all their games at home for the last two years, except for travelling to the Coy Cup last year. For us to travel to both Coy Cups in Terrace and Fort Nelson cost us $12,000 plus in those two years. It’s disappointing for us to not be able to try and recoup some of those losses by being able to host it this year.” Hartman added that the Flyers have a meeting scheduled with BC Hockey officials to hear their reasoning for awarding the Cup to Whitehorse on October 12th.Advertisement A spokesperson from BC Hockey was unavailable to speak with Energeticcity.ca regarding the decision or the misidentification this afternoon.last_img read more

Pain gain as Reus helps Dortmund keep heat on Bayern with Freiburg win

first_img0Shares0000Marco Reus inspired Borussia Dortmund to a crucial win over Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Sunday © AFP / THOMAS KIENZLEBerlin, Germany, Apr 21 – Captain Marco Reus played through pain to inspire Borussia Dortmund to a 4-0 win over Freiburg on Sunday and keep them on the heels of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.Reus took a knock to his knee in a heavy challenge from Freiburg’s Janik Haberer in the second half, but fired Dortmund to victory with a goal and two assists to keep them a point behind Bayern. After a heavy defeat to Bayern two weeks ago and a nervy win over Mainz last Sunday, Reus insisted the display showed that his team were back to their best and ready to take the fight to Bayern in the title race. “The last few weeks didn’t quite go as we had hoped, but it was important that we stuck together in the difficult moments,” the Dortmund captain told Sky.“We still believe we can be champions and we want to keep the pressure on Bayern until the very end.”Dortmund needed three points on Sunday after Bayern beat Werder Bremen 1-0 on Saturday.Far from buckling in a nail-biting title race, Dortmund delivered one of their most confident recent performances.A silky move in the box saw Dortmund take the lead after 12 minutes, with Raphael Guerreiro and Marco Reus linking to provide Jadon Sancho with a tap-in.Guerreiro, returning to action after two weeks out injured, then set up Reus for Dortmund’s second eight minutes after half-time.Lucien Favre’s side survived a handful of Freiburg chances before a brutal counter-attack saw Reus set up Mario Goetze to make it 3-0.Paco Alcacer completed a perfect afternoon for Dortmund, converting a late penalty after a Pascal Stenzel handball.Dortmund face local rivals Schalke in the Ruhr derby next Saturday, before Bayern travel to take on Nuremberg the following day.Elsewhere on Sunday, Hanover slipped further towards relegation despite holding Hertha Berlin to a 0-0 draw away from home. Davie Selke and Ondrej Duda both missed golden opportunities to win the game for Hertha, who nonetheless broke a five-game losing streak. Waldemar Anton and Florent Muslija came close for Hanover, but Thomas Doll’s side remain rooted to the bottom of the table, six points adrift of the relegation play-off place.“A point is too little. We could have got more from the game today because Hertha were not at their best,” said Hanover coach Doll, who nonetheless praised his team’s mentality. “The lads are showing on the pitch that they want to fight, and we have managed to create a good atmosphere around the team. The fans aren’t booing us.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Small brawls have occurred throughout the past week, including a fight Friday among 73 inmates that took an hour to quell. Investigators said they do not know what sparked the Feb. 4 melee, but sheriff’s Chief Marc Klugman, who oversees the nation’s largest jail system, said the fights since then appear to be tit-for-tat retaliation among inmates. The latest rioting took place despite a lockdown of all 19,000 inmates in the Los Angeles County jail system. Inmates can’t receive visitors and lose other privileges during lockdowns, Klugman said. Seventy clergy members talked with inmates Thursday in an attempt to stop the rioting. CASTAIC _ Nine inmates suffered minor injuries this afternoon in the latest brawl at the Pitchess Detention Center, where racially charged riots were reported almost daily over the last week. The latest fighting broke out about 4 p.m. in the North Facility of the detention center complex and ended quickly, said Deputy Carlos Lopez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The disturbance was quelled with the use of sting balls. Eight inmates were hospitalized and one was treated at the scene for minor injuries, he said. No deputies were injured. Scores of inmates have been injured and one killed since clashes between Latino and black inmates started Feb. 4 at the jail complex, which is located about 40 miles north of Los Angeles.last_img read more

‘TIME TO BRING IN THE ARMY TO BACK UP OVER-STRETCHED DONEGAL GARDAÍ’

first_imgA local politician has called for Defence Forces support for over-stretched Donegal Gardaí.The county is so understaffed that whole areas are left with just two guards on duty at night.Donegal Daily revealed yesterday how Letterkenny – population 18,000 – had just two officers available for patrols on several nights recently. We have also learned since then that policing in Ballybofey is ‘at breaking point’ with so few gardaí available deal with the number of incidents reported to the main station there.County Councillor Patrick McGowan says the army should be trained up to provide back-up with there aren’t enough guards available.“I believe the role of the Army could be widened to include backing up the Gardaí in certain circumstances,” he told Donegal Daily.“This should follow proper training for dealing in a civilian situation. Most of our Gardaí are not armed either and that’s another reason the Army to be used. “I think they should be trained and placed on standby so they can be brought in when needed,” he added.‘TIME TO BRING IN THE ARMY TO BACK UP OVER-STRETCHED DONEGAL GARDAÍ’ was last modified: August 20th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:’TIME TO BRING IN THE ARMY TO BACK UP OVER-STRETCHED DONEGAL GARDAÍ’Armycllr Patrick Mdonegal gardailast_img read more
