first_img​Proposed Liverpool kit deal with Nike worth less than current sponsors New Balanceby Ian Ferris25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool’s proposed new kit deal with US sportswear giant Nike is only worth a guaranteed UK£30 million (US$37 million) per year, according to High Court papers seen by the Times, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.The figure is in stark contrast to the previously reported UK£70 million (US$86 million) per year figure for the Nike deal. Instead, this reported base figure is less than Liverpool’s existing UK£45 million (US$55 million) annual deal with New Balance, which is taking the club to court claiming a contract clause means it can match Nike’s terms.It is also less than the minimum UK£50 million (US$61 million) per year deals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have with Nike, as well as the UK£71 million per year agreement the brand struck with French champions PSG in June.However, Liverpool apparently believe Nike can deliver far greater total revenue for the club than has been generated by their deal with New Balance. This is reflected by a commitment from Nike in the proposed deal to pay the club a 20 per cent royalty on net sales of Liverpool products. It would also promote the club through other influential athletes, such as Serena Williams and LeBron James, and popular musicians associated with the company, including rapper Drake.In addition, the report says Nike will distribute a new kit through ‘6,000 global doors’, compared to New Balance’s 3,000.In response, New Balance believes it can meet demand for Liverpool kit, having delivered tow of the biggest selling home kits for fans. A three-day trial to settle the legal dispute has been listed from 18th October. TagsPremiership NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Oilsands execs see brighter future with approval of Line 3 pipeline project

No Comments

first_imgCALGARY – Executives from the biggest oilsands companies in Canada say concerns about getting their products to market are starting to ease in the wake of the regulatory approval of Enbridge Inc.’s $9-billion Line 3 pipeline replacement project.The project to add about 375,000 barrels per day of export capacity into the United States cleared its last major regulatory hurdle at the end of June when it was conditionally endorsed by Minnesota state officials.Executives from Suncor Energy Inc., Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Imperial Oil Ltd., Husky Energy Inc. and Cenovus Energy Inc. say the decision, especially when combined with a deal by the federal government to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline and its expansion project for $4.5 billion, could allow them to consider expansion projects again.However, they said while taking part in a panel at the TD Securities Calgary Energy Conference that such decisions also hinge on federal and provincial regulatory and tax certainty.Husky CEO Rob Peabody says the company expects to grow its overall oil and gas production by about five per cent per year going forward, adding it has excess pipeline capacity now but it will need more room for its growing Western Canada production by about 2023.Suncor chief operating officer Mark Little says his company has sufficient contracted pipeline space as production ramps up at its recently completed 194,000-barrel-per-day Fort Hills oilsands project, but it will hold off on adding major production projects until it’s satisfied that all market access, regulatory and fiscal issues are more clearly understood.last_img read more

FSJ for LNG reflection on LNG for 2018

No Comments

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John for Liquefied Natural Gas (FSJ for LNG) has recently released a letter looking at a year in review.Founder and Chairman, Alan Yu, says in the letter that FSJ for LNG is thankful for 2018 but is hoping for a better 2019 in regards to the current status of the LNG project. He notes that the LNG project was not just good for Fort St. John but for the National and Global economy as well.“When North East B.C. received good news in late 2018, it wasn’t just a positive turn of events for Fort St. John and the Peace Region. The final investment decision to proceed with the LNG Canada project heralds a project of national and global significance. A flat year for LNG investment worldwide was lifted by the October announcement. As recognition travels far and wide of fully how transformational Canada’s largest-ever private investment will be, nevertheless there are strong signs that the NDP-Green alliance in Victoria can barely contain its contempt for anything to do with natural gas and LNG.” Yu hopes that, in 2019, the Horgan Government does the right thing and test its reckless LNG policy with the electorate by calling an early election.“For those who understand both the economy and the environment, there is only one realistic hope for 2019: that the Horgan government do the right thing and test its reckless LNG policy with the electorate by calling an early election. The same voters who rejected Horgan’s crooked proportional representation referendum are highly likely to react the same way to his anti-climate climate plan: by saying no.”In closing, Yu points out that there is still a lot of work that FSJ for LNG has to do even with the LNG project coming to Fort St. John.“For those asking if the job of FSJ for LNG is now over, I hope this answers the question. We still have quite a job to do in 2019 which include voting somebody out in the coming federal election.”The full letter can be viewed below.last_img read more

I’m glad I don’t have to bowl to Russell, says Kuldeep Yadav

No Comments

first_imgKolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have had a stupendous time in this edition’s Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise, captained by Dinesh Karthik, has won two matches out of three and are in the middle of the points table. They lost to the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi, but prior to that, managed to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Eden Gardens. One of the main reasons why the Knights have been competitive is Andre Russell, who is currently the third highest run-scorer in IPL 2019 with 159 runs at an average of 79.50 and a titanic strike-rate of 248.43. The Jamaican has also smacked 15 sixes, the most in the tournament thus far and quite rightly, Kuldeep Yadav, KKR’s chinaman bowler, has hailed the hulk-like batsman as a game-changer. “You need a player who can change the game for you. We have Russell in that category. He is a perfect game changer for us. “We all are proud of him. When he is on fire, he is unstoppable. I am glad I don’t have to bowl to him (Russell),” Kuldeep was quoted as saying. Yadav also sounded confident about the Knight Riders’ chances of winning their third title in the T20 league. “He is the kind of player who can destroy any bowler’s economy rate. The way we have been playing and have showed fighting spirit, I think KKR will win the trophy this year,” he added. Russell has scored 159 runs from three innings at 79.50 with a strike rate of 248.83 in the first three matches. He also took five key wickets for his team. Before the start of the tournament, the majority of the fans and pundits picked the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle and other destructive top-order batsmen as favourites to win the ‘Orange Cap’, but Russell has surprised one and all with his hitting and more importantly consistency. Considering the position he bats at and the number of balls he gets to face in an innings, 159 runs in three matches is a Herculean effort by the Windies all-rounder. He has scored 20 (or more) runs in an over thrice in IPL 2019 already, and with 15 sixes to his credit, Russell is also the number one batsman in the list of ‘most sixes in IPL 2019’, after the first week. His teammate Nitish Rana, Warner, and Chris Gayle are behind him on the list with 10 sixes each. Russell’s impact in the first week of IPL 2019 was bigger than any other player in the tournament. As far as Kuldeep is concerned, he hasn’t had the best of tournaments, picking up only a couple of wickets in three matches with best figures of 2/41 against the Capitals in the last encounter. KKR are next scheduled to lock horns against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on April 5.last_img read more

Ohio State mens basketball loses 2nd straight 8274 to Louisiana Tech

OSU frehsman JaQuan Lyle (13) surveys the court during a game against UT Arlington on Nov. 20 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio. OSU lost 73-68. Credit: Hannah Roth |Lantern PhotographerFor the second straight game, the Ohio State men’s basketball team (2-2) was drubbed by a mid-major program.After falling to Louisiana Tech (4-0) 82-74 at the Schottenstein Center on Tuesday night, coach Thad Matta’s squad is left searching for answers.“I think this team has to find itself,” Matta said. “I think that we have to look at our weaknesses, admit that we have them and find ways to correct them.”Those weaknesses, unmasked within minutes of the tipoff, have hindered this unripe, youthful team.Its first few offensive possessions, predictably, ended in a turnover and a missed free throw.“We’ve got to stop trying to make the big play and just make the right play,” sophomore forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “That’s where a lot of turnovers come from. We’ve just got to play a smarter game. Free throws are all mental. We’ve got to get up there and think we’re going to make it, and we’ll make it. We work too hard on our free throws to miss like that.”Meanwhile, Louisiana Tech went on a 7-0 run to open the game and never looked back. It never trailed throughout the course of 40 minutes.The Bulldogs, led by senior guard Alex Hamilton — who scored a team-high 24 points — found their stroke from behind the arc, and it started early on.Spacing the floor, knocking down threes and beating the Buckeyes to loose balls, Louisiana Tech outpaced OSU.This time around, a lack of energy or toughness wasn’t the issue; offensive consistency was.“We can’t relax,” Tate, who registered a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds, said. “It felt like we relaxed when we tied it up. We just have to learn for the remainder of the year to keep the foot on the pedal. We have to keep those runs going and at the defensive end dig even deeper.”Newly minted starting center, freshman Daniel Giddens, contributed eight rebounds and four blocks, while freshman guard Austin Grandstaff added nine points, shooting 60 percent from the 3-point line. The duo helped the Buckeyes surge right before the half to cut Louisiana Tech’s lead to 42-38.“I thought Daniel was pretty good tonight,” Matta said. “He’s one guy that you can look out there on the floor and you know who he’s playing for. You know how important (the game is to him) — the passion.”The game’s defining moment came with 11:26 left in the second half.Down 55-54, Marc Loving – who scored a game-high 25 points – went to the free throw line with a chance to give OSU its first lead of the night. The junior forward missed one, then Louisiana Tech pushed the ball, hit a corner three and took the energy right out of the area.It was a common occurrence.Every time OSU gained momentum, the Bulldogs killed it with a timely three or galvanizing slam dunk.“It definitely gets us down when we try to work on it,” sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop said. “We’ve got to get down on turnovers and make more free throws.”As a team, OSU missed 10 free throws, turned the ball over 14 times and a seasoned, well-balanced and aggressive Louisiana Tech team made it pay for every mental mistake it made. Following the loss, OSU is scheduled to face Memphis on Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Miami. Matta, however, is not looking ahead to the Tigers. “I need to worry about us,” he said, “more than I need to worry about them.” read more

Mens hockey ready to drop puck for 2014 season

No Comments

Loose pucksOSU junior defenseman Craig Dalrymple is injured and will not play this weekend, Rohlik said.OSU is 2-1-0 all-time vs. ProvidenceThis weekend’s games are part of the Hockey East/Big Ten challenge that awards a trophy to the conference with the most points in inter-conference play. OSU players are introduced into a game against Guelph on Oct. 4 at Value City Arena. OSU won, 7-1.Credit: Melissa Prax / Lantern photographerWhen the puck drops in Columbus this weekend, the Ohio State men’s hockey team’s coming-out party will be officially over. The Buckeyes won’t be surprising anyone this year, including themselves.OSU’s regular-season opener against No. 4 Providence will mark the beginning of a season where expectations are clearer than they’ve been in the past, Buckeye junior defenseman Sam Jardine said.Goals to win the Big Ten title and reach the NCAA tournament are built upon the OSU’s loss in the conference championship last year, Jardine said.“It’s been fresh in our memory all summer,” he said. “(We are) very bitter about it, but very motivated, very empowered to get back to that spot where we were last year.”The Buckeyes return 19 players after going 18-14-5 last season. Back for another run at the postseason, a roster that lost Max McCormick and Ryan Dzingel to the NHL is eager to show it can compete without its high-profile forwards.“I think we’ve got a group that wants to prove to people that we have what it takes,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said.That group is one making an offensive transition. This season, the Buckeyes will become a four-line team that relies less upon its top-six forwards, Rohlik said.OSU’s balance was exemplified last weekend when 13 players registered at least one point in the team’s 7-1 exhibition win against the University of Guelph. Forwards Matt Weis and Luke Stork earned points for the Buckeyes’ freshman class.In their first week of official practice, OSU’s eight newcomers have quickly adjusted to practice and game-speed, senior forward Tanner Fritz said.For Fritz, the loss of former linemates Alex Szczechura and McCormick has forced him to make an adjustment of his own. OSU’s top returning scorer has been paired with junior forward Anthony Greco and senior forward Darik Angeli in practice.“Those are guys that bring a ton of speed to the game, so it’s just kind of me keeping up with them,” Fritz said.But while the Buckeyes’ offense is changing, its goaltending is not. Sophomore goalies Matt Tomkins and Christian Frey, who combined for a 2.53 goals against average last season, will each play this season, Rohlik said.Rohlik did not reveal this weekend’s starter, but said he was comfortable with either player between the pipes.In front of the goalies, the defensive keys will be to avoid odd-man rushes and keep the Friars to the perimeter of the offensive zone, Jardine said.“We know with the guys that we have behind us that if we give outside shots they’re going to take care of those,” Jardine said.This weekend against Providence might prove to be a goaltending showdown.The Friars’ junior goalie Jon Gillies has a career 2.12 GAA and .931 save percentage, while his backup, sophomore Nick Ellis, posted a 2.35 GAA and .904 save percentage last season.Gillies and Ellis propelled the Friars to a 22-11-6 record and NCAA tournament berth last season. The Friars, like the Buckeyes, also have high expectations with 19 returnees.“If there’s a year for Providence, this is probably their year,” Rohlik said. “We’re playing a very good hockey team and we have to be ready.”OSU’s preparations for Providence were made easier by the teams’ agreement to trade game film. Rohlik said the Friars initiated the offer to swap tape from last season, an exchange the OSU coach had not made in the past.Despite having film to analyze, Rohlik said he understands his team won’t be mistake-free on Friday. He said his hope is for his team’s effort and accountability to compensate for its mistakes.For a team eager to start the season, it’s just the first of many expectations.The Buckeyes are set to open their season on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Gerrard defends emotional players

No Comments

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard has defended some of his player’s actions so far this season so far.The Gers have picked more than three red cards in the current campaign with striker Alfredo Morelos picking up two of them.The former Liverpool captain has now come to the defence of the Colombia international as well as defender Jon Flanagan after the pair were sent off during Thursday’s UEFA Europa League tie against FC Ufa in Russia.Gerrard who picked up eight red cards during his play game career with both England and Liverpool with four of those coming against rivals Everton and Manchester United, admits he became more hyped up as rivalry games neared and that on not all occasions was that channelled appropriately.“The Man United one is unexplainable. I was only on for about 43 seconds. But I think that sending off had been coming since the Thursday, to be honest! Ever since I found out I wasn’t going to start.” Gerrard said, according to Daily Mail.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“I was a player who played on emotion and that’s where I felt my best performances – all the performances people speak about – came from. But sometimes I got the balance wrong.”“I’m human, my players are human and they’ll get it wrong sometimes. I can accept that. What we can’t accept is it happening a lot. Because then the players in the dressing room think we can have this all the time.”“The job is difficult enough and they start getting frustrated as well as the manager, After an exhausting nine-man effort for nearly half an hour in between 2,500 mile treks to and from Bashkortostan, Rangers can ill afford to be at a personnel disadvantage at Celtic today.”Gerrard added: “It is difficult but the players have to be responsible for judging it. We want them to be tough and to go into challenges but we hope they get the balance right.”last_img read more

Kangaroo rounds out its simple security system at CES 2019

No Comments

first_img Smart Home CES Products Tags Sarah Tew/CNET Kangaroo still wants to keep smart home security simple, but maybe not quite as simple as before. It launched last year with a motion sensor. At CES 2019, it’s expanded its lineup to include a climate sensor, a door sensor, a keypad siren, a doorbell cam and an indoor cam. All will launch later this year and maintain the company’s goal of being affordable and easy to setup.The open/close sensor simply adds a magnet to the motion sensor so it knows if your door is open while still sensing motion. The climate sensor gauges temp and humidity. You can also put it on the floor and it’ll watch for leaks. Both of these new additions will cost $30 like the original motion sensor and they all connect directly to your Wi-Fi router. The sensors are battery powered and last between 8 months and a year before you’ll need to swap in new AAs.The keypad siren will cost $60 and comes with two RFID tags to arm and disarm the system. It can also act as a Bluetooth hub for your other sensors and extend their battery life since Bluetooth signals take less power to send than Wi-Fi.All of these will launch this spring. Kangaroo showed off a doorbell cam and an indoor cam too, but didn’t offer any details, as they won’t launch until later in the summer.The original sensors cost $1 a month for basic app functionality, but Kangaroo will no longer charge for push notifications. You can also customize the hours during which sensors will send notifications and they’re supposedly smart enough to ignore pets. Professional monitoring is still nicely affordable at $60 a year or $9 a month. Since each piece supposedly only takes a moment to sync to your Wi-Fi, Kangaroo could be a good option for simple security, and the new pieces will help the system watch what you want.  CES 2019 CNET Smart Home CES 2019: Every story so far: It’s the year’s biggest tech show.

The Undertaker to team up with Roman Reigns Why this could be

No Comments

first_imgThe match has been announcedTwitter/WWEWWE fans were in for a great surprise when The Undertaker made an appearance on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. His intervention came when Shane McMahon was in the course of brutally attacking Roman Reigns. Just when the junior McMahon was ready to launch into his coast-to-coast move, the bell tolled and the lights went off. When they came back on, The Deadman was in the ring and proceeded to punish both Shane O’ Mac and his henchman Drew McIntyre.So, what did this mean? Well, a comment from Michael Cole while Undertaker was in the process of throwing Shane out of the ring suggested that we might see the two men reviving their feud that led to their Wrestlemania 32 match. Cole mentioned the “history between these two,” and since commentators don’t make random comments but those which are related to the storyline, we were certain to see a fall out from this event in the future. And it was announced that the tag-team of Undertaker and Roman Reigns will be taking on Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre at WWE Extreme Rules. But then, what about the fact that Undertaker’s last performance in the ring was quite disappointing and the fact that he has been looking well past his sell by date? This is where the presence of Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre in the ring may come into play. Taker might be too old to carry a match all by his own. So, getting him involved in a tag-team match as a partner of Reigns could be a smart idea. A tag-team match is the best way to utilise The UndertakerTwitter/WWEWhile he may not be the most popular wrestler, the Big Dog is certainly one of the best performers. When he is the tag-team partner of The Phenom, he could do all the heavy lifting and make the match interesting while giving Undertaker enough time to show off his signature moves but not so much that he would tire himself. On the other side, Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre will ensure that Reigns gets good support from the other side.Getting Taker to team up with Roman might be the best idea WWE has had in a long time. The athleticism of Reigns and the aura of Taker might indeed be a recipe for success.last_img read more
