Manchester United F.C. coach Jose Mourinho denies chasing Cristiano Ronaldo

first_imgManchester United F.C. head coach Jose Mourinho has said the English football giants never considered bringing back Real Madrid star forward Cristiano Ronaldo to the club.The Portuguese superstar, a four-time Ballon d’Or winner, had been linked with a move back to United. There were reports that the Euro 2016 winner wanted to leave Real following accusations by authorities that he has committed a 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million) tax fraud.”We have never thought about it because he is such an important player for his club, of great economic power. We have not been able to find a reason that could have made us think that Ronaldo could leave,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by ESPNFC after United’s 5-2 pre-season match win over LA Galaxy on Saturday.”I am not a defender in my club once you waste time on players who are mission impossible,” Mourinho said on the Ronaldo move.On signing Alvaro Morata, another Real attacker, Mourinho said: “It is a question for Florentino. What I said today is what I say today. Clubs put price tags on players, not the one who wants to buy. He belongs to Madrid. Madrid has decided and we have not come to an agreement. It is simple. It is a shame.”It is a player who made it to the first team (at Real Madrid) with me. We have a special liking for, he is someone special. I enjoyed watching his evolution in Juventus and Madrid. It is like that. I don’t think he can end with us.”advertisementlast_img read more

Hyderabad Test, Day 1: Roston Chase leads West Indian defiance after Kuldeep, Umesh shine

first_imgRoston Chase (98 not out) and Jason Holder led a spirited fightback for West Indies after Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav had threatened to shoot out the visitors cheaply on the first day of the second Test in Hyderabad. By stumps, West Indies had reached 295/7 against India, who lead the two-match series 1-0.It was not a day without drama. Shardul Thakur became India’s 294th Test cricketer this morning but he limped off the field with a groin injury after bowling only 10 deliveries. The Indian attack had to make do with four bowlers on a flat pitch but West Indies wasted a solid start.Kieran Powell fell to R Ashwin in the 12th over and West Indies would go on to lose two more wickets – Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope before lunch.Hope perished at the stroke of lunch and West Indies were feeling the heat at that point. Would they waste another good chance? They had the good fortune of winning a toss on a flat pitch but their batsmen had yet to show the kind of application that Australia’s Usman Khawaja, Aaron Finch, Travis Head and Tim Paine exhibited in far more difficult conditions in Dubai.Hyderabad Test: Day 1 Highlights | ScorecardAfter lunch, West Indies suffered further setbacks when Kuldeep snared Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Ambris within quick succession of each other. West Indies’ best batsman in the series – Roston Chase – was beginning to settle down and he looked like he was in desperate search of a batting partner who could take the fight to India.advertisementAnd for a while it looked like Chase had found his man in Shane Dowrich. The two batted solidly as they realised the surface had little in it for the bowlers. They added 69 runs for the sixth wicket and when it was time to for tea, the West Indies camp looked rather pleased even though Dowrich had become Umesh’s second wicket.Read – Another pitch invasion as fan breaches security to click selfie with Virat KohliThe final session was a treat to watch for every West Indies fan. It was refreshing to see Chase and Holder play every ball on merit. It was a lesson in aggressive batting and defensive techniques against some of the world’s best spinners. The pitch certainly helped and two well-set batsmen would have realised there were no demons on the surface.Also Read – Shardul Thakur becomes India’s 294th Test cricketer and then walks off with groin injuryThe 104-run stand finally came to an end when Holder fell to Umesh with the second new ball. But it was still a day West Indies would cherish. It was a day they showed some resilience and the courage to put up a fight against the world’s number one Test side in their own backyard.last_img read more

Catch Up On Attack on Titan With Film Recaps in Theaters

first_img Need some help remembering what happened in the last season of Attack on Titan before jumping into the next? Funimation has you covered because it’s going to be bringing the series’ recap movies to theaters for a limited engagement. This should help keep you from having to sit through the first season again when you’ve got time and help you get right into things straight away.The two 120-minute recap movies, Guren no Yumiya and Jiyuu no Tsubasa respectively, neatly tie up the first and second halves of the series. But you’ll have to be quick about catching them if you’re interested in giving them a shot, as they’ll only play for one night, as is what tends to happen with anime movies — it can’t ever be convenient, or located somewhere that anyone actually lives.If you do make it out to see the movies, make sure you stay to the end, where Funimation has confirmed it will it will be showing a quick teaser trailer for the upcoming second season. The second season is almost upon us, in fact, coming on April 1. Funimation has confirmed this will be the case, too. If you can’t wait, you might want to pick up some of the manga volumes where the story picks up in case it’s too far away for you to cope with.For everyone else, check out the listing of the 19 select theaters showing the films below. Too bad if you live in the midwest, I suppose…or most of the United States in general. If you are attending one of the shows, make sure you let us know how you found the recap films. It will likely be the same as watching the anime, keep in mind since you’re basically watching the anime cut together into one big movie. But that’s gonna be way more convenient than spending an entire weekend (or week if you’re not a binge-watcher) going through the show again.

Highend home tour shows off countys more luxurious side

first_imgWhat: Doorways to Luxury, a tour of more than 30 high-end homes priced between $600,000 and $3.6 million.When: Noon to 5 p.m. June 5.Where: Throughout Clark County.Cost: Free.Info: Doorways to LuxuryWhen it comes to buying houses, the rich seem to be leading the marketplace, according to agents who work in Clark County’s luxury market.But because the properties they show are only appropriate for a handful of buyers, local high-end home sellers are banding together to draw attention to upscale — $600,000 and above — mansions with acreage and waterfront views on the north side of the Columbia River. The group wants to make sure wealthy buyers see every possible home in their price range in Clark County, said Linda Horowitz, a Vancouver broker and head of the Greater Vancouver Luxury Homes Group.The group of 60 to 70 brokers tour each others’ listings monthly to educate the limited pool of buyers about what’s out there, said Horowitz, a broker with Windermere/Stellar Group in Vancouver.On Sunday, June 5, the luxury homes group plans to cast its net even wider for potential buyers, with an afternoon tour of more than 30 upscale properties for sale in Clark County. The self-guided Doorways to Luxury tour spans the local landscape, from the hills above Camas and Washougal to the shores of the Columbia River and the wide-open acreage of Ridgefield and Hockinson.“It will answer the question, ‘What does a million dollar home look like in Clark County,’” said Sue Logan, a broker and luxury home specialist with Vancouver-based Kimbal Logan Residential.last_img read more

Report Americans eat too much salt

first_imgAbout 44 percent of the sodium in Americans’ diets comes from these 10 types of foods:o Breads and rolls.o Cold cuts and cured meats.o Pizza.o Poultry.o Soups.o Sandwiches.o Cheese.o Pasta dishes.o Meat dishes.o Snacks.Source: Centers for Disease Control and PreventionThe words “sodium” and “salt” are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. While most of the sodium we eat is in the form of table salt, which is sodium chloride, some salts don’t contain sodium.Source: Centers for Disease Control and PreventionWhen it comes to mealtime, most Americans need to hold the salt.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports about 90 percent of Americans ages 2 and older eat too much sodium.Americans, on average, eat about 3,300 milligrams of sodium each day. U.S. dietary guidelines recommend limiting sodium to less than 2,300 milligrams daily. For comparison, one teaspoon of table salt has about 2,300 milligrams of sodium.People with high blood pressure, kidney disease and diabetes, or those older than 50, should only consume 1,500 milligrams, according to the guidelines.Excess sodium causes artery walls to thicken and increases blood pressure, said Jendy Newman, a registered dietitian with PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is known as the “silent killer” because many people don’t know they have the disease. Yet, in 2008, hypertension was listed as the primary or contributing cause of death in about 348,000 deaths in the U.S., according to the American Heart Association.High blood pressure can also lead to heart disease and stroke, according to the CDC.“If we could reduce sodium, we could make some significant decreases in health care costs and morbidity and mortality,” Newman said.The biggest sodium culprit: processed foods.“For the most part, in our U.S. food culture, we get most of it from the processed and packaged and restaurant food,” Newman said.Frozen TV dinners, canned foods, soups and processed cheeses can carry high amounts of sodium. So can snacks such as pretzels, popcorn and potato chips, which can contain up to 200 milligrams of sodium per serving, said Claire Stoltz-Urch, registered dietitian with Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center.last_img read more

In addition, Governor Walker offered the following statement on his recent appointment of Duncan Fields to the Alaska Board of Fisheries:“Finding high-quality Alaskans to serve on the Board of Fisheries is critical, and that is why I was pleased to nominate Duncan Fields of Kodiak to fill the vacant seat on the Board.At the same time, Duncan’s appointment underscores the constant struggle to achieve balance on the Board. Not only is there an array of user groups – from commercial and sportfish to subsistence and personal use – there are also distinct regions which deserve representation when management issues are considered. It is not always possible to balance every need every year. This is why I believe the Board should be expanded to include nine members. While I continue to support Duncan’s appointment, I am working to promptly address the concern of balance between user groups.” – Governor Bill Walker Andrew Mezirow of Seward is a lifelong sport fishermen who has participated in numerous fisheries.

Iditarod Leaders Leave White Mountain Head For Nome

first_imgThe top teams have left White Mountain and they are on their way to the Iditarod finish line in Nome. Spectators are unlikely to see a major shakeup in the front end of the field, but this year’s race is likely to end with career bests for many of the teams up front.Download AudioAs Tuesday progressed in White Mountain, it became clear that Dallas Seavey was the likely winner of this year’s Iditarod.“I’m starting to think there’s a chance we could do this,” he said.Mitch Seavey arrives in Ruby. (Photo by Emily Schwing)Seavey has won the race twice before, but this year, he has says he’s had more fun than ever driving his team.“You know we’re having a blast out here, we’re just musing,” he said.Seavey left White Mountain with a four hour lead on another Seavey – his father, Mitch. Race officials joked that Dallas ought to stick around for a few extra hours and race Mitch in to Nome.“No, I have too much respect for my competitors to do any showboating like that,” Dallas said. “I’m going to take every minute of my lead. If the wind starts blowing or if I end up having to carry ten of eleven dogs, this race, we’re so used to things going well, that we thing ‘oh that will never happen,’ it does happen.”When he pulled into the checkpoint, Mitch Seavey said it’s been a long-time dream to see his family dominate the Iditarod leader board“Well of course our dream finish would be one-two, with me in front of course,” Mitch said. “I thought it was agreed upon by the whole family. I just didn’t know how that would work out.…nah, it’s a great day, we’ll see how it all pans out. We still have to make it to the finish line.”Both Mitch and Dallas Seavey are very competitive men, with extremely fast dog teams. The older Seavey knows better than to try and catch his son.“That’s another thing about running tired dog teams,” Mitch said. “You don’t want to upset the apple cart. You just move along at whatever they are comfortable with and don’t let them fall asleep on you, but you can’t start whooping it up and going rodeo style, because you might not even make it.”Seavey says it’s unlikely Aaron Burmeister can make up enough time to overtake his team. Even so, Burmeister remains hopeful.“Well that’s a possibility,” Burmeister said. “That’s kind of the goal to be able to catch Mitch and I have no idea where Jessie is behind me.”Jessie Royer arrived for her eight-hour layover less than two hours behind Burmeister, but she says the last few runs up the coast have taken a lot of energy out of her dog team.“He’s mentioned before, I’m one person he does not want behind him at want mountain, because I have caught him a lot of times,” she said.Royer says she tried to catch up, but she is also realistic about what her dog team can do in the next 70 miles.“If I had caught like hour on him coming here, and all I had left was an hour on the way to Nome, sure,” she said. “But I’m not going to catch two hours on the way to Nome.”The top few teams are likely to finish in the order they arrived in White Mountain, making for a less dramatic race in comparison to previous years, but they all know the race isn’t over until their dog teams pass under the burled arch.last_img read more

Low Credit Scores May Hurt Refinancing Homeowners Report
