first_imgPremier League The importance of Mustafi in Arsenal’s newfound solidity Chris Wheatley Arsenal Correspondent Last updated 1 year ago 17:00 11/29/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Mustafi Premier League Arsenal Arsenal v Huddersfield Town Huddersfield Town Opinion The German international is proving his doubters wrong with a series of confident performances at the heart of the Gunners’ defence Life at Arsenal couldn’t have started any better for Shkodran Mustafi when he arrived from Valencia for a fee in the region of £35 million last summer. An unbeaten run of 19 games, plaudits for slotting into a defence which more often than not has come unstuck over the years and statistics emphasising his defensive qualities only justified his price tag further.Arsenal 6/4 to beat Man UtdIt’s fair to say that it was only a matter of time before critics would pounce on any weakness the 24-year-old would show, and an unfortunate hamstring injury during the crucial festive fixtures hampered Mustafi’s campaign from there on. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Mustafi missed games against Manchester City, Everton and West Brom over the space of 21 days with that trio of matches providing the start of a drastic change of fortunes for Arsenal in the second half of the season. The former Everton man eventually did make his return to the team but results worsened and a thigh injury in April curtailed a season that started so well.His aggression, speed to the ball and passing ability were all lauded at times last season and it’s taken two games in the new season to remind supporters that Mustafi is a defender who means business. Arsenal have conceded one goal in their last seven Premier League games with the centre half in defence, compared to 15 conceded when he isn’t in the backline. With Mustafi PL 2017-18 Without Mustafi 7 Games 6 5 Wins 3 1 Draws 0 1 Losses 3 669 Minutes Played 585 1 Goals Conceded 15 0.1 Conceded/90 2.3 669 Mins/Goal Conceded 39 71% Win % 50% When Goal sat down with Mustafi this time last year, he revealed that Arsenal’s style of play demands every single player on the pitch to be able to maintain and distribute possession – including the goalkeeper. Mustafi’s own awareness of different systems and ability to learn quickly makes him one of the Premier League’s most impressive and burgeoning defenders.”Especially playing for Arsenal, you have to play because the game today demands you to play. Even the right-back, left-back and goalkeepers are now asked to play from the back. Big teams want goalkeepers who are not only good on the line but good with their feet as well.”If you want to keep playing you have to have the quality to play out from the back. It gives the team so much quality because if you just tell the striker, ‘You have to get the ball from the goalkeeper and you have to make everything on your own’, he’s going to say, ‘OK, I can do that for one or two games, but 40 games?'”It’s going to be difficult. You have to give them a hand and we want them to give us a hand as well in defending because if everyone is running at the back four, you can stop a few attacks but at the end it’s going to be too much.”MustafiMustafi’s slide tackling has appeared more rational this season and he appears to have learnt from his fellow central defender Laurent Koscielny, a player who was in a similar mould to the German when he arrived in north London seven years ago. The 0-0 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge where Mustafi had a goal ruled out for offside was an example of how things can change so quickly in football, yet it was the goal against Tottenham two weeks ago which really got people talking about him once again.”I understand the English mentality and they are so strong mentally. Even if you are winning three or four-nil, the teams are not dead – they just score one and they become alive. This is something I really like about English football, that they just go on until the last minute.”Defenders will always court criticism because mistakes and goals are inevitably laid at their door. Mustafi is a grounded, intelligent person off the pitch and it certainly shows when he’s in the Arsenal back four. His communication skills are second to none and passion to play at the highest level cannot be questioned either – and when you see the way he conducts himself, he’s exactly the kind of defender Arsenal fans have been crying out for.“That’s you guys thinking it,” he told reporters after the recent north London derby win. “As always – Arsenal is dead. Arsenal is not coming back. It’s always the same. It’s about what the team is thinking and feeling. We keep saying it that we are always alive, we always believe in ourselves, we always try to give everything on the pitch.”With backroom additions and players like Mustafi living up to the expectations set of them, Arsenal are certainly not dead. If the World Cup winner can continue to build up a run of games alongside Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal in the three-man defence then the future certainly looks bright for both club and player.

first_imgInternationally renowned wine writer and critic, Matthew Jukes and ACT Minister for Community Services, Joy Burch helped launch the inaugural ‘Touch Football Vinnie-Yard’ event on Wednesday at Viking Park. The event, which will be held on Saturday, 24 November, will offer the public a day of wine tasting from local suppliers and a social Touch Football tournament in a family friendly atmosphere. There will also be a celebrity match featuring local sports stars and media personalities. The Touch Football Vinnie-Yard will be the first event of its kind held in the ACT region and the third of its type held nationally, following on from the successful Touch Wine (Adelaide) and Wine Rules (Melbourne) events. Jukes is the brainchild of the concept which started in Adelaide in 2005, with the Touch Wine and Wine Rules events having raised $750,000 for charity through the initiatives. The money raised for the Touch Vinnie-Yard event will be donated to the St Vincent de Paul Society’s local services that assist those in need. Jukes was thrilled to be launching the event on Wednesday, saying that Touch Football is the perfect fit for the event. “The Touch Football (element) is vital and it couldn’t be any other sport. It’s so strong over here. I’d learnt about this Touch phenomenon across the whole of the country, it seemed absolutely a natural fit for this. We’ve just had so much fun over the past seven years and fully intend to disseminate multiple events across the country,” Jukes said. Minister Burch says that it ‘was a pleasure’ to help launch the event and sees many benefits of the event being held in Canberra. “As I was driving down here from the Assembly this afternoon, I heard Matthew on 666 (ABC Radio)… I heard Matthew talk about it and it all made absolute perfect sense. It is a very smart event, we promote our region as much as we can and I think the wine industry in our region has matured and developed over time,” Burch said. “It promotes Touch Football and the inclusiveness of Touch Football whether you are (young) or (old). Touch Football allows lots of people to participate and the numbers continue to grow. So having those two (wine industry and Touch Football) come together is a very good thing…and coming together for such a great cause, to help St Vinnies and the fabulous work that they do.”“We are getting a number of teams together over a day in November which means young and old are getting out and getting active and participating in the glorious weather we have in November and all to the benefit of the work that Vinnies do. It is a winning trifecta and very good to see it come to Canberra.”To find out more information on the Touch Football Vinnie-Yard or to register a team, please visit Related LinksTouch Vinnie-Yardlast_img read more

“In addition to illegal settlements, the practice of demolishing Palestinian structures in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and displacing Palestinians undermines the prospects of peace,” said Nickolay Mladenov, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process. Briefing the 15-member body on the latest developments, Mr. Mladenov reported that since June, Israel’s illegal settlement activities have continued at a “high rate,” a consistent pattern over the course of this year. Activity during this period was concentrated primarily in occupied East Jerusalem, where plans were advanced for over 2,300 housing units in July, 30 per cent more than for the whole of 2016. The reporting period witnessed the eviction of a Palestinian family in Sheikh Jarrah, residents for over 50 years, after a protracted legal battle. The building is located in a section of the neighbourhood in which several settlement plans were among those promoted in July. “The United Nations considers all settlement activities to be illegal under international law andan impediment to peace,” the Special Coordinator stated. He went on to note that violence persisted as one of the main obstacles to resolving the conflict. Although the reporting period was characterized by relatively low levels of fatalities, a number of incidents occurred, resulting in the deaths of 19 Palestinians and eight Israelis. Settler-related violence and punitive demolitions of Palestinians homes by the Israeli authorities also continued. “Continued violence against civilians and incitement perpetuate mutual fear and suspicion, while impeding any efforts to bridge the gaps between the two sides,” said Mr. Mladenov. “I once again urge both Palestinians and Israelis to demonstrate their commitment to rejecting violence, inflammatory rhetoric and provocative actions.” read more

first_imgNew mines and mine expansions are reinforcing the mineral sector’s role in the foundation of Ontario’s economy says the Ontario Mining Association (OMA).  “Ontario’s economy is going through the pains of transformation as it moves from a manufacturing base to a service and knowledge base.  However, as when there was an earlier shift from agriculture to manufacturing, mining was there to cushion the adjustment and help society adapt.“Currently, mining companies are proceeding with major growth plans in many parts of the province.  If we look back two years and forward about three, an incomplete list will show that mining is investing more than C$8.5 billion in capital expenditures – this is in addition to operating expenditures and exploration activities.  We are not sure other private sectors of the economy can match this level of recent activity on the capital spending front.”De Beers Canada made capital expenditures of C$1 billion to bring Victor mine, near Attawapiskat, Ontario’s first diamond mine, into production in 2008. Victor is expected to have a positive impact on Ontario’s GDP of C$6.7 billion and a C$4.2 billion GDP contribution to the economy of Northern Ontario. Xstrata Nickel invested C$927 million to bring its Nickel Rim South mine in Sudbury into operation in 2009.  The big mining sector capital expenditure announcement in recent weeks was Vale’s plans to invest C$3.4 billion in Sudbury.  Vale is spending C$200 million to upgrade the Clarabelle mill, C$360 million to bring the Totten mine into production and C$1.5 billion to $2 billion on an Atmospheric Emissions Reduction (AER) project to cut sulphur dioxide emissions by 80%. Further investments are being made in mining studies on the Copper Cliff Deep project, Creighton mine and a number of potential low-grade, near to surface nickel-copper deposits.“The investment program we are pursuing is an indicator of the bright future we see for Vale in Canada,” said Tito Martins, Chief Executive Office for Vale Canada and Executive Director Base Metals for parent company Vale.  “The dollars invested here will improve environmental performance, unlock new market opportunities, increase efficiencies and strengthen our global competitiveness for years to come.”The golden potential of Ontario’s geology is also attracting numerous investments.  Detour Gold is making capital expenditures of C$1.1 billion to bring the Detour Lake gold mine, located about 150 km northeast of Cochrane, into production.  During construction, this will create 1,200 jobs and when the mine is in production in 2013, it is expected to employ about 500 people. The positive economic impact for Ontario for the life of the mine will be more than C$8 billion. In the Kirkland Lake area, near Matachewan,  Northgate Minerals is investing C$339 million to bring its Young-Davidson project to gold producer status by 2012. Kirkland Lake Gold is making capital expenditures of C$56 million to expand production at its mine from about 50,000 oz/y of gold to 200,000 oz/y by 2012.Also among existing bullion producers, Goldcorp has earmarked C$350 million in capital investments for Red Lake, C$335 million for its Porcupine operations in the Timmins area and C$390 million for Musselwhite.  Lake Shore has invested C$186 million to bring its Timmins West gold mine into production and further investment on the adjacent Thunder Creek property is expected. Elsewhere in Ontario, Quadra FNX is putting C$200 million into Sudbury area expansions and North American Palladium, north of Thunder Bay, is making capital expenditures of C$270 million on the expansion of the Lac des Iles mine. Wesdome, St. Andrew Goldfields, Richmont and almost every gold mine has expansion programs and feasibility studies for growth underway. Not included in the total of more than C$8.5 billion in mining sector capital expenditures in Ontario are industrial mineral producers and massive capital expenditures for the development of the Ring of Fire area. Cliffs Natural Resources has announced its plans to develop its chromite deposits and a ferrochrome processing operation in Ontario. Prefeasibility studies are underway with a projected startup sometime in 2015. Also, Noront continues to assess its high-grade nickel, copper and platinum group metals and chromite properties in the Ring of Fire region.    Between the combination of committed capital and what is anticipated, Ontario’s mining industry is poised to increase and enhance its already strong contributions to the economy and society of Ontario. An economic study by the University of Toronto — Ontario Mining: A partner in prosperity building (economic impacts of a representative mine in Ontario — shows that the direct, indirect and induced economic impacts of a mine are extremely large.“In its construction phase the mine adds about C$140 million to Ontario GDP and generates 2,000 jobs annually. In its production phase, for each year of operation, the mine adds approximately C$280 million to Ontario GDP and increases employment by almost 2,300 at a rate of compensation per employee well above the provincial average.”last_img read more

A lot of arguments stirred the comment from the Belgium winger saying “If we don’t beat Ireland, we should quit playing handball”, and has been labelled as highly disrespectful. Ireland promised a good fight following that statement, but only managed to fight well in the first half, going at the break with 8:11 negative. In the second half the Belgium lifted their game and in the end scored a 16-goals victory, 28:12, allowing Ireland only three goals in the second half.Great Britain were defeated heavily at home by Italy. They recently lost by only three goals, and everyone thought that maybe the British might stand a chance in this game again, but the Italians were superior winning it 47:23. ← Previous Story EHF EURO 2014 far away from Germany – Heuberger needs “3 of 3” Next Story → Women’s EHF CL: Gyori the first favorite for trophy! read more

Guggenheim Partners Divests Media Properties

first_img Guggenheim Partners, which will no longer have a stake in the trade publications, first acquired them from Nielsen Holdings in 2009 and grouped them into a subsidiary called Prometheus Global Media. MediaBistro came under the Prometheus umbrella when it was acquired by Guggenheim for $8 million in 2014. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, although the move is part of an effort to mitigate Guggenheim’s annual losses, which are estimated to be between $25 to $30 million annually, reports The Wrap. Boehly, however, places that figure in the “single digit millions.” Back in March, the New York Post reported that Boehly, who facilitated a $2.15 billion Guggenhim acquisition of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012, was planning to leave the company and start his own firm. The spinoffs have been in the works for some time, reports Variety, after Guggenheim’s patience with the media brands disappointing returns wore thin. The Hollywood Reporter, which publishes weekly, has seen its paid circulation grow from 36,436 in 2012 to an average of 39,452 for the six months ending June 30, 2015, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Billboard’s average paid circulation stood at 15,012 for the three months ending March 31, 2015, and the site reached a then-record 13 million unique visitors in October 2014. Global investment firm Guggenheim Partners announced plans to spin off a number of its media properties—including The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, Adweek and Media Bistro—into a series of companies owned by Guggenheim Digital Media president Todd Boehly. Billboard confirmed the ownership transfer in an announcement on the music industry trade magazine’s website. The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard will comprise a new company known as THRB, while another will be made up of MediaBistro, Adweek, the Clio Awards and TVNewser, in addition to other sites. As part of the deal, television studio Dick Clark Productions and film production company A24 Group will also become independent entities in which Boehly will take a controlling interest. Executive management at all of the media properties will remain intact, according to Boehly.last_img read more

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Share Michael Smith After a tough 2016, Trafalgar & TravCorp are ready for 2017 Tuesday, October 4, 2016 center_img TORONTO — As it approaches its 70th birthday, Trafalgar finds itself in a similar position to where the company started all those years ago. As a post-war tour operator, back then Trafalgar had to find a way to make clients comfortable to travel to Europe again. After the attacks across Europe in the past 12 months, the company finds itself in familiar territory going into 2017.At an event for partners and media last night, Wolf Paunic, President of Trafalgar Canada, introduced Trafalgar’s 2017 Europe & Britain brochure with a refreshed look for the brand, new itineraries and a message to help destinations that have been hurting from events this past year.The new brochure promotes the confidence that agents and their clients can feel when booking a trip with Trafalgar. Paunic emphasized that one of the safest ways to travel is with a guided tour. With the attacks in Paris in 2015, Trafalgar was able to supply information about the whereabouts and health of all their passengers within 24 hours to agents. Paunic drew parallels to his daughter’s experience in Paris – she was in the city during the attacks and took several days to contact her friends with social media.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”Brett Tollman, Global CEO for The Travel Corporation, used his time to ask the industry to support France, Brussels, Turkey and other areas hurting from recent attacks. He reminded the industry that these cities are beautiful destinations that will bounce back just like New York did after 9/11 and that tourism will play a big part in that.So far that seems to be true, with a 25% increase so far for guaranteed departures for 2017. Clients booking early can take advantage of early payment discounts and save 10% on any guided vacation booked and paid in full by Jan. 12, 2017.New itineraries for 2017 include a six-day Amsterdam Explorer and a 20-day Nordic Adventure capitalizing on trends towards Scandinavia. The company also has new Insider Experiences at The Vatican, with an exclusive after-hours private tour followed by dinner in the Missionary Ethnological Museum. Additionally, tailored trips have been introduced, charting interests from the Edwardian era of Britain to the Life of Martin Luther and much more.More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe Trafalgar 2017 Europe & Britain brochure is supported by a revitalised website, now live at www.trafalgar.comTollman was also excited by the recent announcement of the ME to WE partnership with TreadRight.
