Ronaldo is easier to mark than Wolves star Traore–Newcastle defender

first_img “I have played against Ronaldo, who is fast, but not that fast. Of course, he is so skillful but sometimes that is easier than being up against someone with such incredible pace.” Traore has scored five times this term and was a starring performer when Wolves overcame a two-goal deficit to beat Manchester City last month. He has attracted interest from several top clubs, although Wolves’ season could yet result in a second straight year of European football giving the winger incentives to stay. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side take on Espanyol, who are bottom of La Liga, in the Europa League Round of 32 next month. read also: Man City preparing offer for Wolves’ forward They are yet to be active in January but have been linked with Chelsea youngster Tariq Lamptey who is out of contract this summer.

The Dutchman has come up against Ronaldo previously in his career but cited Traore’s pace as a point of difference which he found hard to deal with. “I have played against some very good players in my career, but no one quite as fast as Traore,’ Willems said in the Northern Echo. “He is unbelievable, definitely a beast. Not only is he incredibly fast, but he is also so, so strong as well. “He’s known as the fastest man in football and now I know that is true. I like to think I am quite fast too – at least I did before playing against him!

The Importance of Quick Decisions

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#start#startups dana oshiro In the words of legendary investor Mark Suster, “Entrepreneurs don’t noodle, they do.” While it’s important to be analytical in your decision making, it’s also important to act when opportunities arise. Yesterday over drinks with some investors and entrepreneurs, I marveled at the difference between the life of a startup founder and the life of an investor. Founders manage multiple staff and stakeholders with heavy emphasis on operational issues. Meanwhile, investors manage multiple portfolio companies across a number of industries. The common trait amongst both is decisiveness.Suster’s recent blog post speaks to the value of being able to make a quick decision. For investors, not only are most investment pitches met with the answer “no”, but investors recognize that some of their portfolio companies will not offer the anticipated returns. The ability to be decisive while also factoring in a margin of error is exactly what keeps both worlds running smoothly. Says Suster, ” The best entrepreneurs have a bias for making quick decisions and accept that at best 70% of them will be right.  They acknowledge that some decisions will be bad and they’ll have to recover from them.  Building a startup might be a game of inches but you don’t get timeouts to pause and analyze all of your decisions.” While it’s important to lay out a product plan, create a good business strategy and study your competition, don’t expect to be perfect. Leave room for a margin of error and don’t be afraid to pivot quickly if your company needs it. You can’t be a startup founder without taking any risks – if you were really that safe you’d be working for someone else.

Connecticut Starts an Energy Label Program

first_imgData gathered on a brief home walk-throughAssessors take a walk-through of about an hour to collect data about the house, and then turn to the Home Energy Scoring Tool developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in order to produce the numerical score and suggestions for improvements.DOE says that the scoring tool takes into account “fixed attributes” of a house — walls, windows, heating and cooling equipment — and makes assumptions about occupant behavior. Appliances, lighting, and home electronics aren’t included. Recommendations and energy savings are based on national averages for specific improvements as well as average state utility rates.Assessors collect some 40 pieces of information, but the inspection isn’t as thorough as a full-blown energy audit that would include the use of diagnostics such as a blower-door test and a better accounting of occupant behavior. But the department said that homeowners might be encouraged to follow up with a whole-house assessment later.DOE cautions that there’s often more to it than a simple number. A home in New England with a high score (meaning high energy efficiency) may use more energy than one in southern California simply because of differences in climate. Occupants who keep summer thermostat temperatures low and never bother to turn off lights or electronics may use a lot of energy despite a high score.Energy scores can be compared for houses in different parts of the country, but not to compare projected energy bills. The software takes into account the typical range of energy consumption in the region where you live, according to DOE. Connecticut residents are being introduced to a new tool for gauging the energy efficiency of houses they own or may want to buy.The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) said that Connecticut becomes the first state in the country to adopt the Home Energy Score program statewide.Houses are rated on a scale of 1 to 10 for energy efficiency in a labeling program that’s designed to give buyers more information about houses before they buy. Homeowners benefit as well. The free inspections give them suggestions for making their homes more efficient.DOE said that the program, called EnergizeCT Home Energy Solutions, provides a label similar to a miles-per-gallon rating for new cars that could be included in real estate listings so buyers will get a good idea of the true cost of owning the property.Connecticut hopes to score between 12,000 and 14,000 homes per year, part of a statewide effort to weatherize 80 percent of all homes in the state by 2030. DOE said Colorado and Vermont also have signed on, with Alabama, Arkansas, and New Hampshire expected to do so in the near future.Money to run the program in Connecticut comes from Energize Connecticut, an agency that pays for energy efficiency efforts for commercial and residential customers, underwritten with a surcharge on energy bills.last_img read more

Won’t let BJP treat us in this manner, says Chirag Paswan

first_imgThe Lok Janshakti Party, a key constituent of the NDA, is likely to go it alone in the Jharkhand Assembly election as the BJP is yet to respond to its demand for six seats. The LJP may contest in 37 seats.The LJP made public its dissatisfaction on a day when the BJP lost its oldest ally, the Shiv Sena.“Yes, I wanted to contest in Jharkhand with the BJP. It has been over five weeks that I wrote letters to BJP president Amit Shah, working president J.P. Nadda and Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, listing the six seats we want to contest. These six seats were the ones where the BJP had performed badly in the previous elections,” Chirag Paswan, the newly appointed president of the LJP, told The Hindu. Mr. Paswan said he was willing to compromise and his party would have been ready to bring the number down to 2 to 3. The LJP acted after the BJP released its first list of 52 candidates on Sunday. Among these 52 seats are those demanded by the LJP, including Jarmundi, Panki and Latehar. In the 2014 Assembly election, the BJP had given the LJP a token seat, Sikaripara, where it did not even have a candidate. Finally, a BJP candidate fought on the LJP symbol.‘Inconsequential seats’“I got an indication from the BJP that this time they want to repeat what they did in 2014. They want to give us a few inconsequential seats where we have no presence or even candidate. This time, the LJP is not ready for this kind of treatment,” Mr. Paswan said. The party’s State unit was also eager to go it alone, he said. The LJP has not spoken to the BJP after it released the first list. On Saturday, Mr. Paswan met Om Mathur, the BJP’s in-charge for Jharkhand, but did not get any assurance. “This happens too often. In an alliance, it is necessary for them to give the allies clarity. I have repeatedly told this to the BJP. If you delay your decision, it affects the performance of the alliance too. They are meting out a similar treatment to the All Jharkhand Students Union Party (AJSUP),” Mr. Paswan said. The seat-sharing arrangement between the AJSUP and the BJP has not been announced yet.Mr. Paswan lauded the Shiv Sena for walking out of its alliance with the BJP. “The Shiv Sena stood by whatever it said right from day one… It has the right to exit the NDA for its future,” he said.last_img read more

Judiciary Encouraged to Educate the Public on Sentencing Guidelines

first_imgChief Justice, Hon. Zaila McCalla, is calling on members of the legal profession to play a greater role in educating the wider public about sentencing guidelines.She noted that there were legislative provisions that allow for reduced sentences for persons who plead guilty. “You cannot for example, if an accused pleads guilty to manslaughter, after a charge of murder, you cannot sentence the accused based on murder because it is a provision of our law,” she said, explaining that “provocation” reduces murder to manslaughter, adding that “these are all legal principles.”The Plea Negotiations and Agreement Act, gives accused persons the opportunity to offer a guilty plea in exchange for a lighter sentence.Mrs Justice McCalla was speaking at a special sitting of the Court of Appeal that was held in her honour at Public Building West, downtown Kingston on January 26.The Chief Justice added that she was depending on members of the Bar and the media to educate the Jamaica citizenry, so they can understand and will not be “traumatised” by what they read in the papers at times.Meanwhile, Mrs. Justice McCalla commended members of the profession who are committed and dedicated to their work and the mission of the court.During the special sitting, members of the Judiciary bade farewell to the outgoing Chief Justice.Chief Justice McCalla, has served the Judiciary in Jamaica with distinction for over 40 years.
