Chelsea line-up v Man United: Legend to solve striker shortage?

first_img1 Old friends Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal meet for the first time in the Premier League when Chelsea take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.The unbeaten Blues are riding high after an emphatic 6-0 Champions League win over Maribor and are seeking their seventh successive victory over the Red Devils in all competitions.In his pre-match press conference, Mourinho called Van Gaal an important figure in his early career but said his confident and happy team was going up north to win.The Portuguese manager ruled Loic Remy out for two to three weeks but said Ramires and John Obi Mikel were close to returning, while Diego Costa trained individually and could also play despite an overnight hospital stay this week.Here’s how Chelsea could line up against Manchester United:GoalkeeperChelsea rested Thibault Courtois in their midweek win and even though Petr Cech kept another clean sheet, Mourinho confirmed the Belgian will start. The goals that Courtois keeps conceding are irrelevant for now but sooner or later they will be costly. Thankfully Cech is waiting in the wings.DefenceJohn Terry capped a magnificent defensive performace with a great goal against Maribor and will not fear United’s Angel di Maria and Radamel Falco should they start. Branislav Ivanovic also played well and can bomb forward backed up by a rested Gary Cahill. With Cesar Azpilicueta banned following a red card at Crystal Palace, Filipe Luis should get his first Premier League start.MidfieldNemanja Mati? is an unsung hero no more and should create the midfield magic to destroy United alongside partner in crime Cesc Fabregas. Eden Hazard’s midweek brace proves that his flashes of brilliance are becoming more consistent and playmaker Oscar has raised his game similarly. Andre Schurrle could return and be deployed to support Didier Drogba up front.AttackChelsea’s striker crisis is less serious than feared. Remy is out but Drogba and Costa could share striker duties on Sunday. Mourinho praised the Ivorian’s performance against Crystal Palace and he scored a penalty midweek. Drogba is likely to start with Costa on the bench ready to be risked it needed. It takes more than a virus to keep the Spaniard out of a match-day squad.How do you think Chelsea will get on against Manchester United? Let us know below… Didier Drogba last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL soccer star Shay Given is delighted at Robbie Keane’s arrival at Aston Villa on a short-term loan deal saying it has  :given the whole dressing room a lift.”The veteran Lifford goalkeeper is delighted that Villa boss Alex McLeish has moved to bring Keane to the club from Los Angeles Galaxy during the MLS close-season in the United States.And, Given feels Keane’s presence at the training ground has already boosted the rest of the squad, while he is certain the former Tottenham and Liverpool striker will still do a job in the top-flight and help the Villa youngsters progress during his time at the club. On Keane, who could make his debut against Everton on Saturday, Given said “It’s great for Villa to secure a player of Robbie’s calibre, even in the short term.“I didn’t know how fit he was before the last couple of days in training but he looks really sharp, to be honest.“We’re all delighted that he’s here and I think he’s just given the whole dressing room a lift.“He’s a big personality and he’s a big-game player. I think even in training the lads have been very impressed with what they’ve seen.” Given added: “Some of the young lads here can learn from a guy like Robbie Keane. It’s fantastic for them. I think the younger players will look up to him and learn from him.“I also think he will cause Premier League defences plenty of problems when he’s given a chance to play.“If you give him a chance, then nine times out of 10 he’ll take it.”Meanwhile Villa manager Alex McLeish has praised Shay for making “great progress” in his recovery from a hamstring injury – but insists the goalkeeper is not certain to walk straight back into the first team.Given is now back in training having been sidelined with the problem since the start of December but No.2 Brad Guzan has seized his opportunity in the absence of the 35-year-old, turning in a string of impressive performances in recent weeks. But with Given now nearing a return to action, possibly as early as this weekend, McLeish faces a tough decision over who to pick between the posts.“Shay is not far away. He’s champing on the door to be involved this weekend,” the McLeish told AVTV.“Whether he is going to make it, we will have to wait and see. I can’t give you that news at the moment.“He has made great progress. He is training with the group and it’s a case of how sharp he’s feeling and how confident he’s feeling before we make a decision about him coming back into the team. “There are no guarantees of that obviously because of the way Brad has played.”SHAY’S DELIGHT AS KEANE ARRIVES AT VILLA PARK was last modified: January 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Aston Villadonegalrobbie keaneShay Givenlast_img read more

Ohio groups make last push for a national food labeling law

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A deadline is looming for the U.S. Congress to pass a national, uniform food labeling standard before Vermont’s GMO labeling mandate is implemented on July 1. If Congress fails to act before the clock runs out, Ohio’s food and agricultural industry, which supports $105 billion in economic activity, will face tremendous uncertainty.Agricultural biotechnology may be in jeopardy too. If Congress doesn’t act, these safe, proven technologies Ohio farmers rely on could be driven from the marketplace.Many Ohio food and agribusiness groups, along with the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, are weighing in on how the Vermont law would impact the Buckeye State, including the Ohio Manufacturers Association (OMA), Shearer’s Foods, Inc., Lancaster Colony Corporation and Axis Seed.“We have a large food manufacturing sub-sector and Ohio is in the top 10 for food processing and for product manufacturing used in agriculture,” said Ryan Augsburger, Vice President and Managing Director of Public Policy Services for the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association. “Large and small food processing companies with production operations in Ohio employed 60,000 last year.”Ohio boasts a remarkable concentration of companies that process high quality food and drink supplies and products, including Kraft/Heinz, Nestle, Anheuser-Busch, General Mills, Dean Foods and Cargill.“The OMA is proud to stand with all of these companies in asking our elected representative in Congress to act promptly to enact a national uniform food labeling standard,” Augsburger said.The affects will be felt on the consumer level as well, as families in Ohio could see their food bills spike by $1,383 a year.“If the GMO labeling issue develops on a state-by-state basis we will wind up with nationally distributed products that are subject to conflicting state mandates,” said Matthew Shurte, General Counsel for Lancaster Colony Corporation. “Inevitably that is going to add cost and complexity to producing and distributing our products, which will lead to higher prices and inconsistent information for consumers.”That is one of the reasons that Shurte, along with others in his industry, believe a national food labeling standard is in everyone’s best interest and that the FDA would be the most qualified agency to develop such a system.“We are actually at the point where we have customers that do not want to ship to Vermont,” said Mark Schwerdtfeger, VP of Communications and Government Affairs for Shearer’s Foods, Inc. “Our stance is that we are okay with mandatory disclosure with multiple options, like QR codes or 1-800 numbers.”The goal for many of these Ohio-based companies is to educate consumers about how safe there food is, and has been, which the use of genetically modified ingredients.“GMOs are safe and they help make crops that are efficient that can resist draught and resistance and these are all good things,” Schwerdtfeger said. “If GMOs were to start going away, it would be a real travesty. One of the worst things that I hear is when a customer of ours asks us to reformulate because of the Vermont law because that would be a logistical nightmare for us.”Not to mention the logistics to the majority of Ohio growers, who have adopted GMO technology on their farms.“Currently over 80% of corn grown in Ohio is GMO and over 90% of our soybeans are GMO as well,” said Nathan Louiso, Local Owner with Axis Seed. “The main reason for that is that GMOs help increase yield and in order to feed our growing population, bigger yields are the most important factor.”And if those GMOs are labeled, it may send the wrong message to consumers.“When there is a mishmash of labeling of food across the country I think that would add to the greater confusion of the consumer,” Louiso said. “GMOs have been proven safe and a national standard will help be another example of that.”The Senate Agriculture Committee is working on reaching an agreement on behalf of Republican chairman Pat Roberts and the committee’s ranking Democrat Debbie Stabenow. Less than two weeks of working days remain for Congress to pass a compromise that would supersede the Vermont mandatory GMO labeling law taking effectt. The Coalition for a Safe Affordable Food Supply also noted that a New York state law continues to advance, and that the law was an indication of the danger of more states considering state laws with differences, potentially causing “chaos in the marketplace.”last_img read more

HTML5 Video Made Hackable By

first_imgScott Rafer is a startup machine. He was one of 5 people at MyBloglog, the portable social network that caught fire in months and flipped to Yahoo, he was a co-founder of API management service to the stars Mashery and has held top executive positions at 6 other startups since leaving Kodak in the late 90’s. Today he’s unveiling his newest project and it’s a very ambitious is an HTML5 video delivery platform. “In the whole Jobs vs. Flash debate, the back-end implications are largely being ignored,” he writes in a blog post today. “HTML5 video makes it very tough to hide anything — media files, player code, usage, video description metadata, social gestures, editing layers, and a hundred other savory morsels. That data feast will all be floating around and available to slice, dice, layer, and roll. Bridging from data availability to great new applications will require open services in which that data is gathered and laid out for use. Handroll.TV is working to be one of those services.”Rafer is joined in founding the company by technologist and business exec Donna Romer and Aaron Wadler, who was Linux Systems Administrator at SuperPoke, the app synonymous with obnoxious if very well scaled Facebook platform applications.Right now the service is bare-bones. It’s a form that you can put any video file’s URL in and you’ll get HTML5 embed code and an API to poke it with. Eventually the service will support all kinds of analytics, authentication and even super-simple video editing. “Anyone who can hack a Tumblr or WordPress theme,” Handroll says, “can be a video editor — and with the same tools.”Rafer aims for maximum openness with the service. He sees a giant abyss of opportunity in HTML5 video; he and his team intend to jump right into that abyss.“Basically none of the code is proprietary. It’s a big open database in the back. I don’t have any clue what the revenue model is here. It will be our database, we’ll have computationally more efficient ways to pull data from it than other people can, just because being database host has advantages. If someone is trying to pull a ton of data out of us, that’s premium. The ability to be social inside the video and mashup without video editing is going to change the online video market. Somebody’s going to figure out how to do the next big video service.”Could that somebody be Time will tell, but this is definitely an early service worth paying very close attention to. It’s sure to shake things up.Photo of Rafer by Dave Sifry.Disclosure: In addition to being awesome, Mashery is a long-time sponsor of ReadWriteWeb.

More Passivhaus Site Visits in Washington State

first_img Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Members This blog, a report on my three-day visit to Passivhaus construction sites and the Passive House Northwest conference in Washington state, picks up where last week’s blog left off.After leaving the North residence job site, we drove to the Freas house, another construction site in Olympia. The steep site has a dramatic view of Budd Inlet, an arm of Puget Sound, to the west. (Author’s postscript: On August 15, 2013, the New York Times published an article on the Freas house: “The Passive House: Sealed for Freshness.”)A design/build company from Olympia, The Artisans Group, is building a single-family Passivhaus on the site. Designed by architect Tessa Smith, the house conforms to a severely modern aesthetic: it’s a flat-roofed rectangle.Smith is proud to report that (with the possible exception of some gaskets here and there) it’s a no-foam house. The floors, walls, and ceiling are all insulated with blown-in fiberglass. After their insulation contractor had trouble achieving required densities while insulating sheathed walls at the North residence, Smith resolved to change their approach. “We’re not blowing any cavities blind anymore,” she said. “We’re blowing through netting.”Here’s a summary of the Freas house specs:To learn more about this house and the other sites mentioned in this blog, be sure to click on the photos and read the captions.In the late 1970s, the state of Washington embarked on an ambitious and financially disastrous plan to build a string of nuclear power plants, in spite of the fact that the region is blessed with abundant and cheap hydropower. The agency in charge of building the plants, the Washington Public Power Supply System, had an unfortunate acronym: WPPSS. Almost immediately, the acronym began being pronounced “Whoops.”Whoops indeed.
