Sánchez The former Gunners defender says the contract rebels would not have lasted long within the ranks of title-chasing teams of the past in north London Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez would have been “shown the door” had they formed part of great Arsenal teams of the past, says Lee Dixon.Both men continue to provide an unwelcome distraction at Emirates Stadium, with their respective contracts running down.Arsenal 6/1 favs to win EL 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 With neither having committed to fresh terms, speculation regarding their future continues to rumble on – with Sanchez still being heavily linked with Manchester City while Ozil is mooted as a possible January target for United.Dixon believes Arsene Wenger should now be looking to move any disruptive influences out, with title-chasing teams throughout Arsenal’s history having shown that no player can be allowed to think that they are more important than the club.A man who captured top-flight crowns with the Gunners under George Graham and Wenger told PA Sport: “We’d have just shown them the door. ‘If you don’t want to play, then go.’ That’s not changed.“If a player doesn’t want to play for you … it happened with Michael Thomas 18 months after he scored [the title-winning goal against Liverpool] in ’89, he was in dispute with the club or George about money. He ended up going in similar circumstances and signing with Liverpool.“It’s no different. If a player doesn’t want to stay somewhere, yes, agents and players manipulate situations – and clubs do, in order to get the best deal for the parties concerned – but in general, if you don’t want to go there, and you don’t want to stay, then you will be ousted from the environment and dressing room pretty quickly.“Players work out whether you want to be there or not, and certainly fans do when they see your performances on the pitch.”Another former Gunner, Alan Smith, has also questioned Arsenal’s handling of Ozil and Alexis, with big money having been turned down for the latter during the summer transfer window.He added: “If somebody doesn’t want to be there and wants to wind their contract down, that’s within their right.“It’s up to the manager then and how he handles that.“Arsenal have a track record of allowing players to run down contracts, and these two are going to be the biggest examples. They could have got £60 million for Alexis Sanchez; Arsene and the club turned it down.“Ozil’s a slightly different kettle of fish but it might well be that they do lose those two players. I’d be more concerned about Sanchez going than Ozil.”

Ask any coffee professional on how to improve your coffee game and they’ll talk to you about grinders. But where to start? There’s a never-ending supply of information out there. We’re here to arm you with the most important tips so you can find the grinder best suited for your needs.Having a decent grinder is one of the easiest ways to control your coffee’s taste quality. Stores offer two kinds: blade and burr. The blade coffee grinders are often cheaper in price than burr grinders, but you sacrifice in even ground production. A blade grinder is reminiscent of someone taking a machete to a piece of raw meat and blindly chopping it to various sizes. Just like how those randomly sized pieces wouldn’t grill evenly and at the same rate, the coffee grounds won’t extract evenly.Here are some key questions to ask yourself when considering a coffee grinder purchase:1) How often do I drink coffee?If you drink coffee every day, then a grinder purchase would be in your favor. If you drink coffee once a month, this might not be worth the investment.2) How fresh are the beans that I’m buying?One of the most compelling reasons to buy a grinder is so you can grind fresh. If you buy coffee that has been sitting on the supermarket shelves for three months, chances are that a grinder won’t significantly affect the taste quality of your coffee. If freshness is important to you (and here at Coffee Kind, we do believe that fresh coffee has a distinctly different taste than 3-month old coffee), then the coffee grinder will only enhance the resulting cup’s taste quality.3) How much am I willing to spend?As we mentioned earlier, blade grinders are considerably cheaper. However, if you’re willing to do some manual labor, some hand grinders like the Hario Mini Mill come in as low as $33. The cheaper manual burr grinders use ceramic burrs, which can wear down more easily than steel burrs. But if you’re just trying out a burr grinder, ceramic burrs will work out just fine for you.4) What method am I using to make coffee at home?Your coffee grinder should be tailored to your needs. For the majority of home baristas, you’ll need a grinder that can produce coarse and medium grinds equally well. If you are lucky enough to own an espresso machine, a grinder built for espresso is worth looking into. One of our favorite manufacturers for automatic grinders is Baratza– they provide a wide-range of quality grinders with excellent prices & customer support.Once you’ve purchased a coffee grinder, here are some quick tips on maintenance and overall coffee taste:-Clean regularly. If you make a daily cup, clean at least once a month.-Use grinder-friendly cleaning products. If you have ceramic burrs, gentle soap and air drying will work. If you have steel burrs, purchase a grinder-cleaning product, like Urnex’s Full Circle Cleaning Tablets, that will soak up the coffee oils.-Use the correct grind for your coffee brewer. Too coarse of a grind in espresso will result in a watery cup while too fine of grinds may back-clog your machine. Our handy grind chart will help you with the correct grind size for your brewer.

While the Central government can have small departments under the Concurrent List to coordinate with the states, there is no need to have large independent ministries in some areas to add to the paper work, legal interpretation and conflicts, in the process, making governance suffer If Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a choice he may not like to expand the current size of his Council of Ministers to keep the government truly slim and trim to deliver maximum governance. The present 58-member Council of Ministers, including the Prime Minister, is bigger than the one he had at the start of his previous term. In 2014, Modi was sworn in with an initial Council of 46 ministers, including himself. Yet, before the end of the previous term, the NDA government had as many as 71 ministers, including the Prime Minister. Interestingly, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, in her budget speech, echoed the Prime Minister’s sentiment linking the size of the government with the standard of governance. Also Read – A special kind of bondHowever, the pressure may soon mount on Prime Minister Modi to expand his ministry for political reasons, keeping in mind BJP’s expansionist policies in states such as West Bengal, where it has some long way to cover to grab the power, and others like Bihar governed by BJP and its alliance partners. Legally, the Prime Minister can expand his Council of Ministers to have as many as 81 members. But, such an expansion will sizeably raise the government’s budget expenditure without any effective return. According to the Constitution of India, the total number of ministers in the Council of Ministers must not exceed 15 per cent of the total number of members of Lok Sabha. Unfortunately, such an expansion to maximise the size of the government is bound to minimise governance. Also Read – Insider threat managementThe most powerful ministerial arms of the Central government are: Home Affairs, External Affairs, Defence, Finance, Industry cum Company Affairs and International Trade or Commerce. Ideally, the Union government should focus mostly on these areas. Departments may be clubbed under a ministry wherever possible. For instance, the industry ministry may cover all industries, including coal, steel, power, petroleum and pharmaceuticals. All traffic and transport departments, including rail, road, air and shipping, can come under one ministry. In India’s federal system, the Union government shares power and responsibilities with state governments in a number of important areas under the Concurrent List. The Centre would do well to leave a good part of the administration under the Concurrent List with the states. The latter covers as many as 52 areas, including health, education, food and agriculture, police, criminal and civil laws, jurisdiction of powers of all courts, excluding the Supreme Court, weights and measures, industrial promotion, tourism, forests, water, labour disputes, price control, electricity generation and distribution. While the Central government can have small departments under the joint list to coordinate with the states, there is no need to have large independent ministries in these areas to add to the paperwork, legal interpretation and conflicts, in the process, making governance suffer. The Modi government may, at best, rearrange its ministries to accommodate a few more alliance members without expanding them. Some of BJP’s ministers may be shifted to important party functions to strengthen the organisation. Such BJP leaders should not feel left out or be unhappy. For instance, present Home Minister Amit Shah held no less an important function in the party as its president in the last five years. Similarly, former health minister J P Nadda’s hands may be full now as the national party’s working president. In the last election, BJP had won 303 seats, increasing its independent majority further, while the other NDA members won 50 seats. The latter must not ignore the ratio of the seat share while demanding more ministerial berths in the government. Political leaders must understand that to serve the people, they don’t have to be ministers. After all, no Union government can have more than 81 ministers under the present Lok Sabha strength to serve the country’s 1,300 million citizens. A smaller Council of Ministers means substantially lower expenditure on the government administration. The surplus funds may be deployed on development projects, which the country needs badly to push growth and create gainful employment. On Prime Minister Modi’s promise of “minimum government, maximum governance”, he had earlier clarified his position in a media interview that “Char-Dhams are said to be sufficient for moksha, but files cannot redeem themselves even after passing through 32 places in government. I had to change this. You will be surprised to know that files reach me after just four to six stops in between. Cabinet notes used to take six months earlier. It takes 15 days now. Minutes of the meeting would be sent to me six months later for my signature. What nonsense! Now it is a rule that minutes should be approved within 15 days of the meeting. This is governance. This saves time and effort.” The spirit must be fully understood and respected by the party and its alliance members. The expansion of the government will only dilute the spirit. It is a general perception that the country has an oversized and bloated government which acts as a drag on economic efficiency and growth. Most political scientists and economists feel that large governments are bad for economic efficiency. However, there is little clarity on what the effective size of a government in a country. There is even less of a consensus on how the efficiency of a government should be measured. In general, most Indians believe that the Union government is too big and intrusive and should be downsized. In 2014, NDA led by Narendra Modi championed the slogan of “minimum government, maximum governance” to drive home the point of a small and lean government. Unfortunately, it failed to keep the promise. Now, this time, with even a bigger public mandate for BJP, the alliance leader, it may be the time for the Prime Minister to fulfil his ambition and set a trend for future governments in the country.

Gururgam: Under vison zero, the Haryana government has set an ambitious target of reducing the number of road accidents by 50 percent. For this purpose, authorities here have begun taking steps and identifying dark spots in the city. According to an official survey, 75 percent of road accidents happen on national and state highways. The recent accident where a dumper rammed into an auto and killed five people was just a stark reminder of the challenges that lie in front of the authorities in dealing with such tragic mishaps. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderDespite 2,000 police officials being deployed on city roads to maintain safety and security of residents, the challenge remains with 1,075 road accidents being reported in 2018 alone, leading to 442 deaths. Even though the data was alarming, the figure was considerably lower than 2017, where a total of 1,400 road accidents had claimed 481 lives. According to officials, 17 dark spots have been identified by the Gurugram Traffic Police. These stretches are main routes that extend beyond Kherki Dhaual and include areas like Daruhera and Manesar. Besides, fast-moving vehicles which clock an average speed of up to 100 to 120 km/hour and the presence of heavy vehicles make this route treacherous for commuters. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsIt is estimated that two out of three accidents on the Delhi-Jaipur highway is caused by heavy vehicles. Various studies that have been conducted on the drivers have revealed that more than 50 percent of the truck drivers had poor eyesight. In what can be considered as one of the first strategic planning initiatives for an Indian metropolis, a Common Mobility Plan (CMP) has been put down for Gurugram. The CMP will be devised by the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority in collaboration with the School of Planning andAarchitecture (SPA). The CMP promises to be the most authoritative survey on Gurugram’s traffic challenges since 2009, when a similar study was conducted by Wilbur Smith Associates. So far, efforts to improve mobility in Gurugram have focused mainly on conditions of vehicular traffic and the CMP is expected to rectify this approach. According to an official, only 25 percent of the primary road network in Gurugram has usable pavements at the moment, which adversely affects the common man who does not rely on cars. At the moment, Gurugram has focused mainly on conditions of vehicular traffic and the CMP is expected to rectify this approach.
In his message on the Day, which is traditionally observed on the second Wednesday of October, Mr. Annan underscored the importance of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, which aims to limit the losses and suffering caused by these calamities. The Strategy calls on local communities to mobilize and urges governments to create and enforce strict building codes. Further, it seeks to exploit scientific and technical knowledge to devise responses that go beyond short-term humanitarian assistance.”United Nations agencies and their partners are strongly committed to carrying out this Strategy by bringing people and expertise together in the search for solutions,” the Secretary-General said. “It is within our power to join forces, address the immense complexities of disaster reduction, and build a world of resilient communities and nations equipped to counter the adverse impact of natural hazards and related environmental and technological disasters.”The President of the UN General Assembly, Han Seung-soo of the Republic of Korea, also emphasized the importance of implementing the Strategy, which, he pointed out, “aims to increase the resilience of all societies to effects of natural hazards and associated disasters, thus reducing vulnerability to such phenomena.”Mr. Han also called attention to the ongoing efforts to reduce natural disasters. “We may never be able to eradicate natural disasters altogether, but we can certainly make our common home – planet earth – more disaster-proof for the benefit of future generations.”According to the UN, incidences of natural disasters continued to increase over the past year. Powerful earthquakes struck India, El Salvador and Peru, while floods ravaged Africa and South Asia. Droughts continued to plague Afghanistan, Central America, and Sri Lanka, and volcanic activity has again struck Ecuador.

This is an issue of importance.”Oliver’s department, meanwhile, has been focused on another pressing matter: the negative economic impact of low oil prices.He delayed the release of the federal budget — April at the earliest, he says; it’s usually February — so his department could get a better handle on just how badly cheaper crude would hurt the economy.The delay has been beneficial, he acknowledged, because his team knows more now than it did a few months ago.“It’s getting closer, the date is getting closer,” said Oliver, who also refused to answer questions about what might be included in the budget.Oliver’s cabinet colleague, Defence Minister Jason Kenney, said the government was elected to focus on economic growth and jobs — subjects he stressed are the top priorities, and will be reflected in the upcoming federal budget.But Kenney said that doesn’t mean the government shouldn’t respond to threats against international and Canadian security such as those posed by the militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.“I think it’s obvious that the attacks in October were at least inspired by the insane vision of ISIL … a genocidal terrorist organization that has explicitly, and on several occasions, said that it’s targeting Canada,” he told The Canadian Press on the sidelines of the conference.Opinion polls suggest the Conservatives have enjoyed a bump in popular support following the October terror attacks in Quebec and Ottawa and after the government’s decision to send fighter jets to Iraq.The government also introduced a contentious anti-terrorism bill earlier this year and Prime Minister Stephen Harper has spent more and more time talking about the escalating threat, which he calls “violent jihadism.”Earlier this week, the Conservatives generated more controversy with a Facebook fundraising post that referenced a threat by the terror group Al-Shabab against the West Edmonton Mall. The post features a photo of a masked person wearing fatigues, complete with the mall’s logo, and a caption asking for support for the government’s proposed anti-terrorism legislation.Alberta Premier Jim Prentice, a former Harper cabinet minister, was asked Friday whether the Tories’ efforts to fundraise on the threat was appropriate.“I think that the concern to me as premier is to make sure the mall is safe,” said Prentice, who also appeared at the Ottawa conference.— with files from Jennifer DitchburnFollow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 6, 2015 1:37 pm MDT National security to become a top election issue: finance minister

This is a good day for the Transformer Prime. First, Asus announced that it would be releasing a bootloader unlocking tool for the new tablet. In the same statement, the company said that it will be getting an update to Ice Cream Sandwich on January 12. Now hacker Justin Case has released a method that will let you root the first Tegra 3 tablet.While the bootloader unlock will make the tablet much more hackable, rooting it will allow access for root apps and may open the door to custom ROMs. Custom kernels will have to wait for the bootloader to be unlocked.This method involves some advanced command line stuff, so it isn’t for the faint of heart. You’ll also need to have ADB (Android Debug Bridge) access, which lets you hack into your tablet on a developer level.How to root1. First you’ll need ADB access on your PC. If you don’t have this yet, install the Android SDK.2. Next you’ll want to download the following two files:NachoRootSU 3. Make sure you have enabled USB debugging on your Transformer Prime.

Murray Kinsella reports from CardiffANY HOPES OF a Six Nations decider in Dublin this day next week were extinguished under the Friday night lights in Cardiff, as Wales’ 22-9 win over Ireland ensured Joe Schmidt’s men are out of the title race.Two tries for George North and a third for Jamie Roberts accentuated Ireland’s inability to take their opportunities and the only scoring they did last night was from the kicking tee. Ireland captain Rory Best. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThe disappointing performance and result in Wales means that Ireland have lost two of their four games in the championship so far, an opening-day defeat to Scotland having set them off on entirely the wrong foot.The heights of November, when Ireland beat New Zealand, Australia and Canada, seem to provide some contrast, but Schmidt rejected the idea that Ireland have gone backwards.“No, I don’t think so,” said Schmidt. “I think there’s incredible intensity in this tournament. The championship is always incredibly tight.“In November, you get to play at home mostly and I guess as frustrating at it is, I still think there were some really positive things that we did tonight.”Indeed, one of the themes of Schmidt’s post-match conference was that Ireland have reason to be proud in defeat, with the head coach mentioning in particular the defensive linespeed early in the game and the manner in which they chased down the Welsh after falling 15-6 behind.Schmidt pointed to Ireland’s seven linebreaks, equal to Wales’ total, and the width in their attack as positive too, and instead focused on the “fine margins” as the reason for defeat.Where were these margins? Well, according to Schmidt, one was the yellow card for Johnny Sexton that resulted in Ireland giving up 10 points while the out-half was in the sin bin.“I felt a bit sorry for Johnny,” said Schmidt, “he’s trapped in by three players and it’s very hard to get out. But when that happens close to the line, that’s sometimes what happens. Sexton was sin binned in the first half. Source: James Crombie/INPHO“A penalty count of 10-4 and we cop a yellow card, it’s tough but we know in that area it’s always a risk.“Even in the first half, I felt [Wales] were probably a bit lucky when CJ Stander went up the left-hand touchline and we were looking for fast ball and we got penalty advantage, but that was it.”That yellow card for Sexton came after the influential out-half had already gone off for a Head Injury Assessment in the opening half, with Wales scoring a try directly from a lineout almost immediately after his departure.Schmidt appeared to be very frustrated with that concession, as replacement out-half Paddy Jackson shot up ahead of Sean O’Brien and Robbie Henshaw, creating the dog leg that allowed Scott Williams to make the initial break.“They attacked well, especially when Johnny went off to get checked out and they went straight through around his area. I think it’s something that we’ll learn from,” said Schmidt, before returning to the incident later in the press conference:“I really did feel that our first 15 minutes, we put them under some huge pressure and got very close to scoring. Unfortunately, we lost Johnny and lost a little bit of leadership and you don’t need to give Scott Williams too many invitations to break the line.“He hit a nice line on a good change-up and we weren’t quite connected, but it was very tough for Paddy just coming on, to suddenly slot straight into that. But, again, that’s a learning experience and I honestly think that you can profit from that further down the line. That’s a challenge for us and we have to make sure that’s what the case is.”The other fine margins?Schmidt pointed to the block down of a Welsh exit kick late in the game, when “the ball slips through the fingers of Tadhg Furlong and I thought he might have gone close to scoring.” Liam Williams waves to the Welsh supporters. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThere was the five-metre scrum in the closing minutes too, when Keith Earls knocked on Garry Ringrose’ inside pass – “we played away off the scrum when we were told to use it, I felt the scrum was starting to go forward, and we weren’t accurate enough,” said Schmidt.Just before that was the most notable incident of all, when Robbie Henshaw was penalised by referee Wayne Barnes for joining the maul ahead of the ball even though it looked like Ireland’s pack were on their way to scoring even without the inside centre.“At 15-9, if we score that and convert – it’s in around the 15-metre mark so you’d expect to convert it – you go one point ahead and suddenly they’re chasing the game, not us,” said Schmidt.“You can’t fault Wayne’s decision on Robbie entering the maul, that’s the law and we know how it is. You’re always going to have frustrations. We felt there were probably a few neck rolls out there that were pretty visible and, again, I don’t think Wayne can pick all those up.”Schmidt refers to each of these as fine margins with some justification, but the combined effect of them was deeply damaging.While the grumblings about Ireland’s performance last night and in this championship will likely rumble on over the coming days, Schmidt was insistent that even after this defeat in Cardiff, his side can redeem their championship by beating England next weekend. A disappointed Sean O’Brien. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHO“You can wallow in your own self-pity or you can try to build from this, and with what we’ve got coming up next week, we can’t afford to wallow for too long.“It’s still a huge opportunity for us, we can still finish in the top half of the Six Nations and that’s still something that’s incredibly important to us, and that’s what we’ve got to turn the page to now.“But unfortunately, it means that we are no longer in the hunt to win the championship.”Subscribe to The42 Rugby Show podcast here: https://the42.ie/3282548 Android Mar 11th 2017, 8:00 AM Share Tweet Email Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL 74 Comments Schmidt stresses positives but Ireland leave Cardiff in deep disappointment Wales scored three tries to Ireland’s zero in a 22-9 win.

Short URL Rickles at the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar party 11,372 Views US COMEDIAN DON Rickles has died at the age of 90.His publicist confirmed that Rickles died from kidney failure at his Los Angeles home yesterday.Rickles, throughout his career that spanned decades, often appeared on late-night television shows and also headlined nightclubs and casino shows in Las Vegas.He was sarcastically nicknamed Mr Warmth or The Merchant of Venom for his abrasive humour and lashing out at hecklers in the audience during his act.Celebrities and politicians, including Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Ronald Reagan, were also often the target of his barbs.He famously got Sinatra’s attention at one of his shows when he spotted the Chairman of the Board in the audience and shouted out to him: “Make yourself at home Frank. Hit somebody.”Born in Queens, New York, Rickles’ career took off after he started making regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and the Late Show with David Letterman.“I think the reason that (my act) caught on and gave me a wonderful career is that I was never mean-spirited,” he once said. “Not that you had to like it, but you had to be under a rock somewhere not to get it.”Films He also appeared in a series of movies including Clint Eastwood’s 1970 film Kelly’s Heroes and Martin Scorsese’s 1995 film Casino.Most recently, he appeared in a voiceover role as the grumpy Mr Potato Head in the Toy Story films.Throughout his career, Rickles also made guest appearances on numerous television shows including I Dream of Jeannie and The Beverly Hillbillies.Tributes poured in after the news of his death broke.

Back in November the administration sent an email to all at-will state employees asking them to submit resignation letters and, if they choose, reapply for their jobs.

GAYSTARNEWS- Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft, speaking at the Center for Strategic & International Studies headquarters in Washington, DC, reaffirmed his support for transgender personnel.This support comes the same day as a Reuters poll revealing a majority of Americans support transgender people in the military.‘The first thing we did [after Trump’s announcement] is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out under a policy who declared themselves transgender,’ Zukunft said in his statement. ‘I reached out personally to Lt. Taylor Miller, who was featured on the cover of the Washington Post last week. If you read that story, Taylor’s family has disowned her. Her family is the United States Coast Guard.’ Miller is a 27-year-old Coast Member service member and a trans woman. In the Washington Post’s feature, Miller confided: ‘I feel very unwanted [after news of the ban]. Mortified and embarrassed.‘Last month, I helped my unit as it rolled out a training policy for transgender services,’ she said. ‘And here we are, less than a month later. Yeah, all of a sudden, I feel like I’m eating my words.’Zukunft, however, wanted to explicitly support Miller. ‘I told Taylor, “I will not turn my back. We have made an investment in you, and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard, and I will not break faith,”‘ he said.He further revealed the Coast Guard has assembled a team of military JAG lawyers on the issue.This development aligns the Coast Guard with other US military branches, including the Army and Navy. Those branches doubled down, saying all service members should ‘be treated with dignity and respect’.As of now, the Joint Chiefs of Staff released a letter stating there will be no policy change until further guidance.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Joining the throngs of critics to Donald Trump’s proposed transgender military ban is the US Coast Guard.
