Red Bull will try a lot of parts in training. …

first_imgRed Bull is not yet as competitive as it expected. It is enough to fight for the podium, but of course the team had higher ambitions.“We’re still learning, bringing a lot of new parts,” said Max Verstappen. “These are different parts to see what works, what doesn’t and where we can continue to improve. It won’t work out from week to week. ”“We need a little more time for that. But yeah, we’re working on it and only testing on the track will we find out if we’re heading in the right direction. ”Silverstone should suit Mercedes. Verstappen is not sure how close or far from black cars he will be with his red bull.“They are definitely the dominant team and they will be very fast. It can be two tenths of a second. I hope it won’t be a second. I hope it will be in half a second. It would be good.”Verstappen denied that he was frustrated with the current form of Red Bull. “You would like to come and know that you will fight for victory every weekend, but this is not the case at the moment. We are trying to learn and improve and hopefully at the end of the year or next year, we can be back in the game. ”“Of course it will not be easy. They also work very hard at Mercedes. But if we could make it harder for them, it would be really nice. But it’s not like I’m sitting here frustrated and angry at it all. Sometimes I’m a little upset, but only at the end of the day, because I want to win and I want to improve and I think everyone on the team feels the same. We all want to win. ”last_img read more

Texas, Florida among college football teams with most to prove in Week 7

first_imgMORE: Highlights from Saturday’s top-25 gamesOct. 12 has the feel of a Separation Saturday, involving five or six games between ranked teams from teams ranked in the AP Top 25. For favorites such as LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma, the stakes will be obvious.Here are the seven teams with the most to prove:Florida (6-0)Where: at LSUProve it: The Gators will be the SEC flavor of the week after beating Auburn in The Swamp, and Kyle Trask’s gutty performance is going to earn a lot of attention. Now, Florida can prove it truly belongs with Alabama, Georgia and LSU in the College Football Playoff conversation by winning at Death Valley. Florida won 16-10 in its last visit to LSU in 2016, and six of the last seven meetings have been decided by eight points or fewer. A victory here would give the Gators all kinds of momentum — and point a legitimate threat in Georgia’s direction in the SEC East.Texas (4-1)Where: vs. Oklahoma (Dallas)Prove it: The Longhorns were the “it” team of the preseason, and despite a loss to LSU are still very much alive in the Playoff hunt. The winning team in the Red River Rivalry has averaged 40 points per game over the last four meetings, and it figures to be a shootout between Sam Ehlinger and Jalen Hurts. The Longhorns likely would be eliminated from Playoff contention with a second loss, however, even if they get a rematch with the Sooners for the second time in a row in the Big 12 championship game. If Texas wants to live up to those preseason Playoff projections, then they will have to beat their storied rival once, maybe twice.MORE: OSU’s big-play KO of MSU a warning shot to Big TenIowa (4-1)Where: vs. Penn StateProve it: Iowa laid an egg in a 10-3 loss at Michigan, and a loss here would make it difficult to win the Big Ten West given the tests left on the schedule. The more immediate concern is beating Penn State. The Nittany Lions have won the last five meetings between the teams, and that includes two at Kinnick Stadium. The last two matchups have been heart-breaking losses for the Hawkeyes. Do they have enough to knock off an unbeaten Penn State team hasn’t allowed more than 13 points in a game this season?Michigan State (4-2)Where: at WisconsinProve it: The Spartans have lost twice, which likely knocks them out of Playoff consideration. A loss at Wisconsin would probably knock them out of the Big Ten race — and they still have matchups with Penn State and Michigan on the schedule. The Spartans and Badgers have split the last 10 meetings, and Michigan State won 16-13 in its last visit to Madison in 2012.Texas A&M (3-2)Where: vs. AlabamaProve it: The Aggies are taking steps in the right direction under Jimbo Fisher, but they have lost the two toughest games on the schedule and still have to go through Alabama, Georgia and LSU. What good is it to be the best five-loss team in the FBS? Since the legendary Johnny Manziel-led upset in 2012, the Crimson Tide have won the last six meetings by an average of 22.2 points per game. Kellen Mond has the Kyle Field advantage. Will it matter with No. 1 in town?MORE: Michigan still needs one big fix to its offenseUSC (3-2)Where: at Notre Dame Week 7 of the college football season might be the most loaded slate of games to date this season, and it only comes at the midpoint.There will be another top-10 showdown between Florida and LSU. The Red River Rivalry will take center stage in the Big 12 and Clemson will be back in action against Florida State in the ACC. Prove it: For all the talk about Clay Helton’s job status coming into the season, this game was circled as judgment day. USC has three wins, which is more than some critics would have expected, and the schedule does open up a bit after this game. Still, Notre Dame has won the last two meetings by an average of 21 points. USC hasn’t won in South Bend since 2011, and that was Lane Kiffin’s second season. Helton will take the heat if the Trojans don’t show up here, and the second half of the season might not matter as much at that point.Florida State (3-2)Where: at ClemsonProve it: The Seminoles had a bye week to prepare for Clemson and have taken steps in the right direction under second-year coach Willie Taggart. Now comes what used to be the best game in the ACC, and arguably the best game of the year. Before last year’s embarrassing 59-10 loss to Clemson, the three previous meetings had been decided by an average of 10 points per game. Florida State might have the second-most talent in the ACC on its roster. Will they show that at Death Valley?last_img read more

first_imgDublin to face Galway in renewal of 2015 edition while the 2016 All-Ireland champions Tipperary take on 2016 league champions Clare This year’s doubleheader expands upon the memorable one-game hurling exhibition on November 22, 2015, when Galway came from behind in an intense, hard-fought battle to register a 50-47 triumph over Dublin in the inaugural AIG Fenway Hurling Classic, which marked the first time hurling was played at the historic home of the Boston Red Sox since 1954. This November, Dublin and Galway will hold a rematch of their 2015 battle followed by a clash of the champions when Tipperary take the pitch to play Clare.“Nearly 28,000 fans packed Fenway Park and experienced firsthand the excitement of when hurling returned to the ballpark for the first time in 61 years in 2015 so we’re really looking forward to bringing the fastest game on grass back for two matches this November,” said Mark Lev, Managing Director of Fenway Sports Management. “We are fortunate to have great partners in AIG, the GPA, the GAA and the City of Boston to help bring this exhilarating sport back to Fenway and proud to play host to one of Ireland’s most traditional sports and further our commitment to bringing unique events and experiences to Boston.”Title sponsor AIG has been an official sponsor to the Dublin GAA since November 2013 and has been committed to raising the profile of hurling and other Gaelic Games to a broader global audience.“AIG in Ireland is delighted to be bringing hurling back to the United States in 2017 after a successful 2015 event,” said Declan O’Rourke, General Manager of AIG Ireland. “Hurling is a unique and wonderful part of our culture, played with great passion and skill for thousands of years. It gives us great pride to share our exciting games at the highest level with the people of Boston again in November. ”Similar to 2015, teams will play a modified version of hurling called “Super 11’s” which reduces the pitch to 11 players and the only way to score is under the crossbar into the net. A goal inside the designated scoring zone is worth three points, while scoring from outside the zone is worth five points.“After an immensely successful event in 2015, we are delighted that hurling is coming back to Boston and Fenway Park” said GPA Chief Executive Officer Dermot Earley. “Playing our games in iconic sports venues like Fenway Park further promotes the growth and interest of our games in the United States and worldwide. Our players are looking forward to a great doubleheader on the pitch at Fenway this November.”In addition to the Hurling Classic, AIG and FSM have teamed up to offer attendees a lively Irish festival complete with Irish food, music and dancing.

first_imgSky Sports Box Office will show the hugely anticipated ‘mega-fight’ between undefeated former world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Mayweather, who holds a perfect 49-0 fight record, won 15 world titles across five divisions, and is considered one of the greatest pound for pound fighters boxing has ever seen.

Legally impossible to steal from oneself – Nandlall

first_imgLaw books vendetta…calls for SOCU to do honourable thing and withdraw chargesFormer Attorney General Anil Nandlall has issued a call for the charges of larceny by bailee instituted against him to be withdrawn. This comes after the publishers of the law books he is accused of stealing affirmed that the law books were indeed being delivered to him in a personal and not official capacity.After checks of its database, Lexis Nexis, the United Kingdom-based publisher of the law reports, stated that the account was and always has been under Nandlall’s name for more than 10 years. In fact, the publisher stated there was noFormer Attorney General Anil Nandlall engaged in discussion with his successor, Basil Williamsarrangement with the Government of Guyana as the owner of the reports.“During the year 2012, we were instructed to directly deliver the said law reports and correspondence to him (at the Attorney General Chambers). We are unable to find any subscriptions for Law Reports of the Commonwealth for the Government of Guyana or the Attorney General’s Chambers from 2012 to 2015 and even up to present,” the publisher made known in its correspondence.The fact that Nandlall was receiving the books on his personal behalf and not the Government of Guyana’s contradicts the charges brought against him by members of the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU).The charges detail that between May 15 and May 29, 2015, while being a bailee (custodian), Nandlall fraudulently converted to his own use and benefit 14 Commonwealth Law Reports, valued $2.3 million, which SOCU alleges he unlawfully retained after demitting office in 2015.Commenting on the new development, Nandlall stated that it was legally impossible for someone to steal his own property and thus, the charges could only be an expression of malice and incompetence. He noted that the honourable thing for any professional to do would be to withdraw the charges, as they are “bad in law”.“The correspondence is self-explanatory. It corroborates every material detail I disclosed about this transaction over a year ago. However, I wish to highlight the company’s assertion that they never sold and delivered these books to the Government of Guyana, nor the Attorney General Chambers, nor the Ministry of Legal Affairs between the period 2012-2015, or even to date,” Nandlall stated in response to the correspondence.He noted that the publisher attested to “at all times (having) these books sold and delivered to me and that it was I, who directed their delivery to the Ministry, during my tenure as a Minister. This correspondence should finally put to rest the issue of ownership of those books.”“It is not legally possible for a person to steal his own property. The charge instituted against me, therefore, is not only bad in law, but it is an expression of malice and incompetence by those who instituted it and by those who inspired its institution.”He reminded that from the time he was brought before the court, he had stated that the charge had nothing to do with law, but more to do with political witch-hunting and a political vendetta.“I am being vindicated with each passing day. A professional worth his salt would do the honourable thing and withdraw the charge,” he said. “But I doubt this will happen in this instance.”Back in November 2015, Legal Affairs Ministry Permanent Secretary Indira Ananjit was sent on 52 days’ leave after the law books were found missing. This caused an audit to be launched by the Auditor General’s Office to locate the books. Nandlall has repeatedly said that the books were part of his conditions of service, an assertion backed up by former President Donald Ramotar.He had explained on previous occasions that when he was appointed Attorney General, he requested as part of his contract, of service for the Government of Guyana to stand the expense for his subscriptions for the Commonwealth law books.“I was subscribing to this particular law report over a decade before my appointment as Attorney General. When I was offered the position, one of the conditions I asked for is for the Government of Guyana to continue to pay the subscription of these books, because I did not want to break the subscription,” Nandlall had pointed out.Insisting that nothing was abnormal about the practice, the former AG had argued that such was done by other Government Ministries such as Finance and Health.He had expressed awareness that for decades prior, the Government had paid for professional and technical publications, journals, periodicals, and magazines. This, he said, had been done for Ministers as well as professional and technical personnel.last_img read more
