10 months agoTalking Tactics: Solskjaer’s risky Man Utd; Puel Leicester sack; Fernandinho irreplaceable

first_imgTagsOpinionAbout the authorAlex Keble FollowShare the loveHave your say Talking Tactics: Solskjaer’s risky Man Utd; Puel Leicester sack; Fernandinho irreplaceableby Alex Keble10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool went four points clear at the top of the Premier League table after Crystal Palace’s shock win against Manchester City. Roy Hodgson’s side exposed some emerging issues in the City midfield and defence, tactically outclassing his opponent on Saturday to put Jurgen Klopp’s team firmly in control of the title race.Elsewhere Ole Gunnar Solskjaer emphasised risk-taking as Manchester United found a fluency and tactical coherence that has been lacking all season. They are still eight points off fourth, but after such a dominant performance Champions League qualification is not unthinkable. Here are three things we learnt from the weekend action:1) Ranieri-style Leicester win shows Puel isn’t the right fit for the clubIt might seem harsh to highlight Claude Puel’s unsuitability to the Leicester job immediately after a 1-0 win at Chelsea, but the manner of their performance should be a wake-up call to the board. Holding just 28% possession and breaking forward quickly, Leicester were forced to play in the counter-attacking style that has become the ‘Leicester way’ ever since their title win. Puel’s desire to play patient possession football hasn’t sat well with the fans or certain players; after Saturday, it’s easy to see why.Chelsea are becoming increasingly jaded, and at Stamford Bridge they struggled to find any rhythm. Leicester’s narrow, compact shell meant Jorginho was consistently forced to spread the ball out wide (rather than cut incisive balls through the middle) for the wingers to attempt crosses (36 in total, their highest tally of the season). It was classic Leicester: deny space in the middle, force long balls into the box, and – with Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in defence – head everything clear.On the counter, Jamie Vardy came to life after a difficult season adapting to Puel’s tactics. James Maddison also looked freer, breaking into space behind Jorginho to set up the winner with a neat assist. It’s clear that Leicester have the personnel – and the desire – to play in a very different philosophy to the one their current manager preaches.2) Narrow front three helps United play high-tempo attacking footballOle Gunnar Solskjaer’s first game in charge of Manchester United was easy enough, but nevertheless he deserves credit for unshackling the players; they had clearly been told to get the ball forward quickly, keep it moving at high speed, and take plenty of risks in possession. The sight of Victor Lindelof playing a one-two and galloping deep into the Cardiff half summed up the new attitude.Tactically speaking, the biggest change was in the positional play of United’s front three. Marcus Rashford dropped off the front while Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial moved infield from the wings, with all three players regularly combining in the number ten space. Such narrowness, and positional fluidity, pulled Cardiff’s defence out of position – most notably in the move for United’s third goal.There will be tougher challenges ahead, but Solskjaer clearly understands the club’s history and the players’ desire to play expansive attacking football. That should ensure his tenure is a successful one.3) Fernandinho is irreplaceable as John Stones is exposed by PalaceMan City seemed to have unlimited strength in depth, and yet on Saturday they were beaten primarily because John Stones could not deputise successfully for the injured Fernandinho. The Brazilian is a clever player defensively, but more importantly has a rare agility for a defensive midfielder. This allows City to play in a very wide formation, because Fernandinho can rapidly change direction and recover the ball.Stones clearly isn’t the most mobile of footballers, making him a strange choice to start in central midfield on Saturday. He was turned in the build-up to the first two Palace goals, first by failing to make a strong enough tackle on James McArthur and then losing control of the midfield battle as Palace won a freekick (from which Andros Townsend scored). Fernandinho’s injury could mean he misses the Leicester City match on Boxing Day – which is a major boost for Liverpool. Just like Palace, it is easy to imagine Leicester’s Maddison and Vardy countering around the flat-footed Stones.Best of the Week – Hodgson’s use of SchluppCrystal Palace’s performance in their victory over Man City was fairly typical of Roy Hodgson’s time in charge of the club, although there was one big difference: Jeffrey Schlupp played in central midfield for perhaps the first time in his career. He added pace and directness in the centre, allowing Palace to counter-attack against John Stones rather than out wide. Schlupp’s impact was most obvious in his equalising goal, but Hodgson’s selection also indirectly played a hand in Palace’s second and third. By adding Schlupp into the middle, switching from 4-4-2 to 4-5-1, Hodgson had to move Andros Townsend out to the right wing. His cutting inside from the right sucked Man City inwards, helping Aaron Wan-Bissaka isolate Fabian Delph – as he did in the build-up to Palace’s match-winning penalty.Worst of the Week – Everton’s defendingConfusion across the back four defined Everton’s 6-2 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday. They failed to track Spurs’ runs properly, communicating badly and clearly struggling with Marco Silva’s high line.But more important was the lack of pressure on the Spurs midfielders. Mauricio Pochettino instructed his team to play lots of long balls in behind Everton’s high line, and this worked primarily because Everton’s midfield didn’t close down quickly enough. Christian Eriksen was given the freedom of Goodison Park – and that can only end in one team winning. last_img read more

IFPI Global Music Report Streaming Ed Sheeran Top 2017

first_imgNews Email Facebook In 32 global markets, digital is now more than half of all revenues. Physical sales and downloads have continued to decline. Without counting video, streaming is 33 percent of all revenues. In 2017, adding video back in bumps that 5 percent up to 38 percent from all digital. If the value gap wasn’t holding back fair music revenue for video streams, that video bump would be much more substantial.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier. Have A Google Home Device? “Talk To GRAMMYs”Read more International recording industry organization reviews a year of continued strong growth, but music still has not recovered its former market strengthPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Apr 24, 2018 – 2:52 pm On April 24, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) released its Global Music Report 2018, reviewing and tabulating the business fortunes of the recording industry last year worldwide. The music industry grew overall in 2017 by more than 8 percent to $17.3 billion, led by streaming revenues which grew more than 41 percent. “We’re not getting complacent,” said Warner Music Group CEO of international and global commercial services Stu Bergen at the report’s release event in London. “We’ve fought too hard to get here and, after 15 years of decline, there’s still plenty of room to grow.” Last year was the third consecutive year of growth for the first time this century.The IFPI report credited Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” as last year’s top song followed by Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito.” While top sellers and the 176 million subscribers paying for premium music accounts make for good news, IFPI chief executive Frances Moore warned that “there is a structural fault in the system” because of the value gap. Combining paid and ad-supported streaming for music, revenues total $5.6 billion with 272 million users overall. On the video side, revenues are $856 million, much less, with more than 1.3 billion users, much more. “Until we fix that structural defect to the market it will always be a struggle,” said Moore.

Historic Israeli moon mission to ferry Holocaust survivors story to space

The snapshot of a moment in time consists of three discs, each containing hundreds of digital files. “This is a very emotional moment,” Jonathan Winetraub, one of SpaceIL’s co-founders said. “We do not know how long the spacecraft and the time capsule will remain on the moon. It is very possible that future generations will find this information and want to learn more about this historic moment.”Beresheet is just about 5 feet (1.5 meters) high and weighs 1,322 pounds (600 kilograms).

Kate Middleton has had it with Prince William Duchess still trying to

At least according to ITV’s royal editor, Chris Ship, who wrote: “No one is entirely sure what triggered it, or whether it’s related to one issue or many issues, but in royal circles, few will deny that there has been a fraternal rift – and it’s made things more than a little tricky.”Kate Middleton stepped into the fray, but it looks like her attention might be needed elsewhere. Rumours recently surfaced that Prince William may have cheated on Kate Middleton. The rumour is unfounded and Kate Middleton seems to know it.  LONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 14: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attend day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 14, 2018 in London, England.Photo by Clive Mason/Getty ImagesReportedly after the Easter service at Windsor, Harry and Meghan – who didn’t attend the service as she has retreated from the public eye as she awaits the baby – invited the couple Cambridge to their new home at Frogmore Cottage. The once-dubbed ‘fab four’ were reported to have had tea and chatted for around 30 minutes, according to the Mirror.Kate Middleton has her hands full putting out fires all over the Palace, but there have been missteps on her part as well. Kate Middleton reportedly left out Meghan Markle in a tribute during the Queen’s 93rd birthday celebrations, which could be seen as a huge insult to the Duchess of Sussex.

Demonetisation New cash withdrawals bank deposits rules

first_imgFollowing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise move on currency ban of Rs 500, Rs 1,000 notes, new rules with regard to cash withdrawals and bank deposits have come up. The central government has come up with new measures, which aims at equal distribution of the new currency notes. Many ATMs have started disbursing new Rs 2,000 notes, however, the supply of smaller denomination notes (such as Rs 100) remains short. Here are top five new rules, which will be henceforth applicable from November 18.Workers, housewives may come under scrutinyHousewives, workers, who were earlier exempted from questioning for depositing cash up to the non-taxable limit of Rs 2.5 lakh in their bank accounts, may now face prosecution charges if found to be helping those convert black money into white. The same rule is applicable for workers and craftsmen, the finance ministry said in a statement. Cash withdrawls upto Rs 2,500 allowed at petrol bunksPeople can now withdraw up to Rs 2,000 cash per debit card at petrol pumps with State Bank of India card swipe machines. The aim of this move is to alleviate long queues at ATMs, since banks are already under pressure for exchanging and depositing cash. The idea was proposed by the All India Petroleum Dealers Association.Cash exchange limit reduced On Thursday, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das on Thursday said that the existing limit of Rs 4,500 that citizens can exchange from bank counters has been reduced to Rs 2,000. The aim of the new rule is to enable a larger number of people to reach the bank counters and avail the new currency notes and those of smaller denominations.Withdrawl limit for traders, farmers risesSince the rural sector is considered one of the most important components of the Indian economy, the central government has allowed farmers to withdraw up to Rs 25,000 per week as against the crop loans sanctioned. This would allows farmers to carry on with their daily requirements. Similarly, registered traders of APMC market would be allowed to withdraw up to Rs 50,000 per week to meet their demands.Withdrawls for central govt employees, marriages increasedThe finance ministry said employees of central government up to Group C could withdraw their advance salaries up to Rs 10,000 that would be adjusted against the November salaries. Similarly, families to withdraw up to Rs 2.5 lakh for weddings from KYC compliant bank accounts. The amount can be withdrawn from one account — father, mother or those who are getting married — per family.Waiving off ATM charges In a bid to streamline the demonetisation effect of overcrowding at banks, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in its circular last week said that banks shall waive off all ATM charges on all transactions (inclusive of both financial and non-financial transactions)- even for customers of other banks.last_img read more

Millions Own Gas And Oil Under Their Land Heres Why Only Some

first_imgMarie Cusick/StateImpact PennsylvaniaJim Barrett stands next to a well pad on his farm in Bradford County, Pa. He accuses Chesapeake Energy of cheating him out of royalty money.The U.S. is one of only a few countries in the world that allow private individuals to own the minerals under their land, a policy that dates to the Founding Fathers as they sought to elevate private interests over those of the British Crown. This financial incentive to allow new drilling goes a long way in explaining the nation’s natural gas boom. The National Association of Royalty Owners estimates some 12 million American landowners receive royalties for the exploitation of oil, gas and other mineral resources under their property.But as U.S. production reaches record levels — it recently surpassed the previous high point in 1970 — a complex web of laws and court rulings is evolving over how these royalties are distributed. That’s creating vast differences in how much money property owners actually get, and prompting a number of lawsuits accusing energy companies of shortchanging them.A tale of two mineral ownersThis disparity is playing out across Pennsylvania’s gas-rich Marcellus Shale.When natural gas companies approached Charlie Clark and Jim Barrett, two farmers living in neighboring counties, both decided to let them drill.Clark says it felt like he “won the lottery,” and he’s grateful every day for the two gas wells drilled on his dairy farm. He estimates he receives about $10,000 per month in the form of gas royalties.“This is what we’ve done with our gas money,” Clark says, standing in his new barn filled with cows. “This barn here cost $40,000 to build it, and we were able to build it out of our pocket.”Growing up in rural Susquehanna County in the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, his family used to scrimp and save just to buy basics, like new shoes.That all changed when the drilling rigs rolled into town and he started receiving royalty checks.“We’re living like we used to, but without the stress,” Clark says. “The bills are all paid. Your kid’s gotta go to college? No problem.”He’s a good example of when the royalty process works. It goes like this: Gas companies and landowners sign a lease agreement before drilling begins. The royalty is money paid to the mineral owner, like Clark, for the right to use his resource. It’s negotiated to be a certain percentage of the revenue from the sale of the gas.Clark is leased to a company called Chief Oil and Gas. The company gets gas it needs, and Clark gets paid. But he knows other people with similar gas wells are striking out.“I thank God every day that it happened here,” he says, and not a few miles to the west.Marie Cusick/StateImpact PennsylvaniaDairy farmer Charlie Clark bought a new hay baler with the royalties he received from natural gas development on his land.Striking out That’s where Jim Barrett lives, about 40 miles away in Bradford County on what he describes as “a pretty typical mountain farm.”Like Clark, he’s grateful for the drilling.“It kept Bradford County alive,” he says. If not for the gas industry, he says his community “would have been a ghost town in 2008 or 2010” after the Great Recession.But for Barrett, the gas boom has not panned out the way he hoped.He claims Chesapeake Energy, which operates four wells on his farm, is stealing from him, and he has joined a class action lawsuit against the company. Chesapeake, which declined to comment for this story, is defending itself against lawsuits in at least seven states for allegedly underpaying royalties.By Barrett’s calculations, Chesapeake owes him hundreds of thousands of dollars for the gas it has pumped out of his farm. The company has said in the past that it’s committed to working with its royalty owners to answer questions.Clark and Barrett might have started out with similar hopes, but their different experiences show how tough it can be for landowners to navigate the gas business, and how resolutions are hard to come by.Why the disparity?Much of the controversy surrounding royalty money boils down to a concept known as post-production costs: the expenses of moving and treating gas through a network of pipelines. To cover the costs, drillers might take deductions from royalty checks.Some landowners agree to that, while others negotiate a lease that prohibits it, says attorney John McFarland, who represents landowners with the Texas-based law firm Graves, Dougherty, Hearon and Moody. Many others sign leases that don’t address it at all. Even when possible deductions are addressed, McFarland says the lease language can be vague. That leaves room for a gas company to take deductions even if a landowner objects.Disputes over post-production costs have popped up all over the country as oil and gas production has soared, the result of new horizontal drilling and fracking technologies that allow drillers to tap into shale rock.By 2014, the United States was producing so much oil and gas that it led to a global oversupply. That’s when complaints over these deductions really started to roll in, says Gary Preszler, vice president of the National Association of Royalty Owners board.Many energy-producing states took a hit during the downturn, as companies went bankrupt, workers got laid off, and tax revenue collected from oil and gas dropped. In most of them, like North Dakota where Preszler lives, wells produce both oil and gas. When prices plummeted, oil suddenly wasn’t worth what it used to be, he says, but the gas still needed to be transported and treated, and that cost stayed constant.“That’s when people saw their checks being reduced significantly,” he says. Some even received statements with a negative balance, meaning they wouldn’t receive more royalties until the balance turned positive again.In Pennsylvania, wells produce mainly gas, so landowners like Barrett noticed right away if companies took out big, unexplained cuts. Some Pennsylvania landowners have been complaining for years about exorbitant deductions. Still, many never have a reason to complain. Charlie Clark, for example, says he feels his deductions are reasonable.A patchwork of court rulings, allegations of cheatingOver the years, some landowners sued when they felt they were being cheated. That has led to a patchwork of court rulings in many states, determining how leases are interpreted.Some landowners hire a lawyer to negotiate a lease with explicit language that prohibits deductions or spells out exactly which costs can be taken out. The greater stake an individual has in a well, the more bargaining power he or she has to negotiate a lease that works in their favor, says University of Texas law professor Owen Anderson.But not all go that route.“As often happens, these landowners and mineral owners sign these leases the company offers without negotiating terms and without getting legal advice,” Anderson says.Later, if they believe they’re not getting paid fairly, their options are slim. They can hire an expert to audit their royalties and go to court, but some can’t afford to do that.Preszler says the better option is to prevent landowners from signing bad leases.“It’s a lot easier to try to get the terms correctly done at the front end than to try to manage and fix a problem later,” he says. His group is developing a seminar to better educate landowners.In Pennsylvania, a decades-old law guarantees a minimum 12.5 percent royalty. But the state’s Supreme Court has ruled that deductions can still be taken, even if they cut into that rate. For four years, mineral owners have pushed to keep that from happening, but so far the legislature has not passed a bill.It’s a different story in West Virginia, where royalty owners just scored a victory. Lawmakers did step in after the state’s Supreme Court sided with energy companies in a case last year. Now, the governor has signed a new law prohibiting gas and oil companies from deducting post-production expenses in certain types of leases.Meanwhile, lawsuits are playing out in several states, including one brought by Pennsylvania’s attorney general. He accuses several gas companies of stiffing thousands of landowners by promising royalty money that was never paid. So far, he’s not agreed to an offer by Chesapeake Energy to settle its royalty cases in the state for $30 million.Back on his farm in Susquehanna County, Clark says even though he’s pleased with his gas royalties, he thinks the law should ensure everyone is paid fairly.“I guess I really don’t understand why the government hasn’t stepped in and done a little bit more, because it would benefit them too,” he says. “Any extra money we’d get, we’d be taxed on.”Over in Bradford County, Barrett just wants to protect his family’s legacy. “Every farmer would say they want their farm to continue,” he says.Barrett’s land was passed down from his great-grandfather, and he hopes to hand it over to his grandchildren. But without the royalty money he expected, he and his wife may have to sell the farm to retire.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Sharelast_img read more

Wealth and wellbeing not necessarily at logger heads

first_imgEnterprise of the Soul, a book written by R P Singh, Chairman Board of Governor, IIT-Guwahati and former CMD of Power grid Corporation of India Ltd., was launched yesterday in the Capital at the India International Centre by Suresh P Prabhu, Union Minister of Railways. Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways was the Guest of Honour present at the occasion.  Deliberating the wisdom of wealth and the piety of prosperity, Singh has embarked on the exploration of the philosophical roots of Indian business in this book. It is a well researched study of the Indian conceptualisation of wealth and well being, of social implications of enterprise and of spreading of prosperity as opposed to the mere making of profits.  The book suggests that happiness of sharing is far greater than the happiness of accumulating wealth and that creation of wealth and spirituality are compatible and not opposed to each other. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Addressing the gathering, Prabhu praised the book and the writer for his attempt to dwell upon on a unique subject of interlinking soul to the mind.  He said that while wealth is being created by the enterprises, the soul in the form of sharing the benefit with the stakeholders is yet to take root.  The book has come up at an appropriate time and raises some fundamental issues of wealth creation and its utilization. It is also a timely reminder for solving the problem of income disparities and unrest prevailing around the globe. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixPrabhu said that we should draw more from the power of the soul than that of mind. He also stated that the book has raised many questions with answers; he expressed the hope that it will raise many more questions and more answers shall emerge.The book also mentions the numerous scams and scandals of the past decade which have led to the distrust of business organisations among the populace and suggests that it is important for the corporations to introspect and take steps to regain trust of the society by migrating from conventional philosophy of profit for stockholders to the philosophy of catering to the interest of the stakeholders.   The book draws heavily from the wisdom contained in scriptures of different religions to emphasize upon the point of view of sharing. Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways in his brief address spoke about the excellent work done by the author, R P Singh in his stint as CMD of Power grid in building the National Grid which led to stability of the grid due to which there was no incidence of grid failure for a number of years since 2002.  He agreed with the view expressed by the author in the book that wealth and spirituality are both compatible.Padamshree Pritam Singh, former Director, IIM Lucknow also spoke extensively on the contents of the book and the need for balanced growth of the mind and soul.  Over the past, the strength of mind has grown manifold at the cost of the soul, shifting the focus of the enterprise to only wealth creation. The book has been published by the Penguin Enterprise and is priced at Rs. 399.last_img read more

Those WHO Swear More honest

first_imgAre you offended by people who use profanities? They may be more honest than others, say scientists who found that those who frequently swear are less likely to be associated with lying and deception. Profanity is obscene language which, in some social settings is considered inappropriate and unacceptable.It often refers to language that contains sexual references, blasphemy or other vulgar terms. It is usually related to the expression of emotions such as anger, frustration or surprise. However, profanity can also be used to entertain and win over audiences. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAs dishonesty and profanity are both considered deviant they are often viewed as evidence of low moral standards. On the other hand, profanity can be positively associated with honesty, researchers said. It is often used to express unfiltered feelings and sincerity. “The relationship between profanity and dishonesty is a tricky one. Swearing is often inappropriate but it can also be evidence that someone is telling you their honest opinion,” said David Stillwell, from the University of Cambridge in the UK. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Just as they aren’t filtering their language to be more palatable, they’re also not filtering their views,” Stillwell said. Researchers set out to gauge people’s views about this sort of language in a series of questionnaires which included interactions with social media users.In the first questionnaire 276 participants were asked to list their most commonly used and favourite swear words. They were also asked to rate their reasons for using these words and then took part in a lie test to determine whether they were being truthful or simply responding in the way they thought was socially acceptable. Those who wrote down a higher number of curse words were less likely to be lying.A second survey involved collecting data from 75,000 Facebook users to measure their use of swear words in their online social interactions.The research found that those who used more profanity were also more likely to use language patterns that have been shown in previous research to be related to honesty, such as using pronouns like “I” and “me”.The study was published inthe journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.last_img read more
