Jurgen Klopp refused to get carried away with the growing expectation that Liverpool can lift the league title for the first time in 29 years saying his players must stay focussed after they thrashed Arsenal 5-1 on Saturday. Roberto Firmino’s hat-trick — the first by a Liverpool player against the Gunners since Peter Crouch in 2007 — as well as a goal apiece by Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane ensured Liverpool’s front three all scored in the same league game for the first time this season. It gives Liverpool a nine point advantage over Tottenham Hotspur who surprisingly slipped up 3-1 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers and 10 over champions Manchester City, who play Southampton on Sunday. Klopp, though, kept his feet firmly on the ground especially with a potentially title-defining clash away at Manchester City on Thursday. “All over it was a good performance against a good opponent and our reaction (to going behind to an early goal) was just brilliant,” he told BT Sport. Klopp said Tottenham’s loss had not affected his players at all. “For sure Tottenham’s result people out there reacted, but not inside the dressing room where they were completely concentrated on the match and not allowed to have that influence our game. “That is how I want the team to stay which is to be concentrated nothing else.” Liverpool’s outstanding central defender Virgil van Dijk, who has added the solidity to a defence which was once a real weakness in the side, said they were not the finished article yet but it was a good moment to be a member of the Liverpool squad. “We still need to improve a lot of things but we are very happy with where we are at the moment we have to keep intensity high and continue in this way,” the 27-year-old told BT Sport. “Anything is possible. We are in a good way, it’s tough but it’s a great time to be a Liverpool player.” Van Dijk’s fellow defender Scottish international full-back Andy Robertson said the City game had been on their minds but they had so far done the business without letting it distract them. “(Manchester City) is a huge one,” the 24-year-old told BT Sports. “Everyone in the squad has been looking at it. “But in December we’ve knocked the games off one by one and we’ve now got a healthy lead. We look forward to it.” Catch up on all the latest sports news and updates here.

MONTREAL – The Crown is seeking a nine-year prison sentence for a man convicted of attempting to leave Canada to join the Islamic State.The defence has countered with a recommendation of six-and-a-half years for Ismael Habib.Habib, 29, has also been found guilty of giving false information to obtain a passport.Both sides made sentencing arguments on Thursday before Quebec court Judge Serge Delisle.In arguing for a nine-year prison term, prosecutor Lyne Decarie noted there was premeditation on Habib’s part, while defence attorney Charles Montpetit suggested six-and-a-half years minus the nearly 27 months Habib has served in pre-trial custody.Habib is the first adult in Canada to be convicted after going to trial on the charge of attempting to leave Canada to join the Islamic State.There are two other cases involving the charge — one of an Ontario man who pleaded guilty and another of a Montreal teen convicted following a trial in youth court.Habib was ensnared by an RCMP-led sting operation, in which he admitted to an undercover agent posing as a crime boss that he wanted to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State.He argued he simply had been trying to reunite with his family in Daesh territory.The judge is expected to render a decision at the end of September.
The show is flirting with life and death once again with this season’s theme of heaven and hell. Houseguests will arrive through heaven’s gates, only to descent into a hellish landscape as the game goes on. “I was blown away [when I saw it],” says Cox. “Pete Faragher is our production designer and him and his team work such miracles.”One particular sore spot will be for the Have-Nots, whose living quarters are akin to a dungeon, with a tomb and eerie green liquid covering the floor. “That is going to be a rough one,” Cox admits. “But, you know what, when you really want to win the game, you’re going to withstand just about anything Big Brother can throw at you.” Advertisement Advertisement Facebook Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitter Defying the odds once again, Big Brother Canada is back for a sixth season of drama, backstabbing, and all the twists Canada can handle.Global pulled a twist of its very own after reviving Big Brother Canada from the brink of death. The reality hit was put on an indefinite hiatus following its fifth season, but after receiving immediate feedback from heartbroken fans, the decision was made to bring it back for Season 6. Among those thrilled about the return is long-time host Arisa Cox, who told The TV Junkies that the new season feels extra special this year, knowing it almost didn’t happen. “It took a lot of people working behind the scenes to [green-light Season 6], but none of that would have worked had the fans not felt that this was something they wanted to fight for,” says Cox. “That makes me feel that we have even more of a responsibility to do our best work.”

Danielle Rochette APTN News The chief of the Innu community of Uashat-Maliotenam on Quebec’s North Shore was found not guilty of sex-related charges against a minor last week.Mike McKenzie had been charged in June 2016 for alleged incidents that took place than fifteen years ago between June 15, 2000 and May 20, 2001.He said Justice Michel Dionne’s decision puts an end to “several difficult months” for himself and his family.“Today, I turn the page on this painful episode. From now on, I intend to devote myself entirely to my role as head of Uashat mak Mani-utenam,” said McKenzie.McKenzie’s lawyer Jean-Luc Desmarais underlined the contradictory testimony from the victim.But for the Crown prosecutor Steve Beaupré the victim was sincere in her testimony despite some contradictions.He add that the fact that the victim made the accusations during the 2016 election campaign did not make her less credible and he did not rule out the possibility of appealing the case.“It’s possible,” said Beaupré. “It takes a point of law on which to rely. In cases like this, it is the credibility of the complainant against that of the accused.”Quebec Native Women’s Association was surprised of the verdict.“This acquittal is not only deplorable for the victim and her family, but it also sends a contradictory message to Aboriginal women and girls who want to denounce once and for all the acts of violence against them,” the association said in a statement to APTN News.email@example.com
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort Worth, Texas-based Emerge Energy Services says that its subsidiary, Superior Silica Sands LLC, has signed an agreement with Torq Energy Logistics Ltd. to open a new frac sand terminal in Buick, which is approximately 70 kilometres northwest of Fort St. John.Emerge Energy says that the 10-acre frac sand terminal is located along the CN Rail line between Fort St. John and Fort Nelson, which will allow the company to have sand brought directly from its facility in Barron, Wisconsin.Including this new terminal, Emerge Energy will have four strategically-located Western Canadian terminals and 12 total active terminals across North America. Construction of the terminal is expected to be complete by the middle of August, and the site will initially accept shipments with rail-to-truck storage capacity for 45 railcars.Emerge says that the terminal also has the capability to expand to handle frac sand shipments from unit trains.“This new terminal in Buick highlights the importance of Western Canada to our business and our commitment to serving key customers in the growing Montney shale play,” said Emerge Energy CEO Rick Shearer. “We continue to see the Western Canadian region as one of our home markets since we have low-cost, direct access on the CN and long-standing relationships with customers active in the area. The CN has been a crucial partner for over six years, and we are excited about enhancing this relationship as we expand our presence in Western Canada. Contracting with Torq is also exciting in that we are furthering our strategy of using third-party terminal providers to capitalize on their logistics and operating expertise while we preserve our capital for high-return mining and processing projects. Torq has a strong reputation in the energy logistics industry, and we are confident that they will do an outstanding job managing this important facility. Finally, we are in the late stages of contracting with a key Canadian customer on a take-or-pay basis. We look forward to a bright future for northern white sand demand in the Western Canadian market.”Torq currently operates seven rail terminals in Western Canada and will build and operate the facility.

Many developing countries will not reach the health-related goals set by the United Nations Millennium Summit, such as slashing infant and maternal death rates, unless clear action is taken at once, followed by a concerted effort over the next 12 years, the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank warned today. Representatives of governments, donor and development agencies, UN agencies and recipient countries are meeting in Geneva today and tomorrow to assess progress so far towards meeting the health goals and to map out what needs to be done if the world is to stand a realistic chance of reaching them. At the Summit in 2000, 189 States committed themselves to eight ambitious Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for improving the health and well-being of hundreds of millions of people in the developing world by 2015. Four of them relate to health: to reduce maternal mortality by three-quarters and child mortality by two-thirds, halve the proportion of people who suffer from hunger, combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other infectious diseases, and improve access to safe drinking water and essential drugs. “When these kinds of targets are set, it seems too soon to take urgent action, and then, after a few short years, it seems too late,” WHO Director-General Lee Jong-wook said in a statement in Geneva. “Where the targets are the product of a large consensus there is also the hazard of everyone waiting for everyone else to risk making the first move. We still have time to avoid these pitfalls with the targets for 2015, but to do so we have to act now.” The World Bank estimates that progress against child mortality has been so slow that no sub-Saharan African country is on target to reach that MDG. At the current pace in the developing world as a whole, only 16 per cent of countries – representing 19 per cent of the developing world’s population – are on track for this goal. Similarly, only 17 per cent of developing countries are likely to meet the maternal mortality goal; here, Latin America and the Caribbean fare worst, with just 4.2 per cent of countries on track. In addition, only 40 per cent of developing countries are on track to reach the malnutrition target. “Even with general economic growth and faster progress on the non-health MDGs, many regions will still miss many of the health MDG targets,” said World Bank President James Wolfensohn. “We need to look at measures such as committing increased resources to meeting the health-related MDGs, and using those resources more effectively in countries.”
COLUMBIA, Mo. — In his final home game, Missouri quarterback Drew Lock rushed for two touchdowns and threw for two more as the Tigers beat Arkansas 38-0 on a damp and dreary Friday.Lock completed 16 of 25 passes for 221 yards, surpassing the 3,000-yard mark for the third straight season. Emanuel Hall caught both touchdown passes and finished with six receptions for 153 yards. Larry Rountree rushed 29 times for 119 yards to exceed 1,000 yards for the season.The Tigers (8-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) took advantage of two turnovers to take control early in the second quarter.Arkansas quarterback Ty Storey threw a pass into the chest of linebacker Terez Hall, whose interception set up Lock for his second rushing touchdown of the game. On the next possession, Missouri defensive tackle Jordan Elliott blindsided Storey, and defensive end Akial Byers — a native of Fayetteville, Arkansas — pounced on the fumble in the end zone as the Tigers took a 21-0 lead.It was a forgettable end to a difficult debut season for Arkansas coach Chad Morris. The Razorbacks (2-10, 0-8) managed just 187 total yards. Freshman Connor Noland replaced Storey in the second quarter and completed 5 of 17 passes for 98 yards.Elliott had three sacks for the Tigers after entering the game with no sacks in the first 11 games.Coach Barry Odom improved to 3-0 against Arkansas, which is Missouri’s designated SEC cross-division rival. Overall, Missouri is 4-1 against the Razorbacks since joining the SEC.THE TAKEAWAYArkansas: The Razorbacks posted their fewest wins since going 2-8 in 1952. This is the second time Arkansas went winless in SEC play. In Bret Bielema’s first season as coach in 2013, the Razorbacks were 0-8.Missouri: In an effort to boost sagging attendance, Odom publicly offered to buy tickets to Friday’s game for any fans who wanted to attend. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that MU took orders for 5,537 tickets, with an estimated cost to Odom of $138,425. But heavy rain and temperatures in the 40s no doubt kept fans away as attendance was announced at 52,482 but appeared far smaller than that.UP NEXTArkansas: Morris will have plenty of time to put the finishing touches on a promising recruiting class that already has 24 verbal commitments and is ranked No. 12 nationally by Rivals.com.Missouri: The Tigers will play in their second straight bowl game and their 11th in the last 14 years.Joe Walljasper, The Associated Press

Google TV was suppose to be center stage for ces 2011. According to a report by The New York Times, however, we might not be seeing all that much out of the service as the country’s largest consumer electronics show.Google has reportedly asked Toshiba, LG, and Sharp to hold off on debuting their entries, thanks to poor early reviews of the Google TV software. According to The Times, the request “caught some of the manufacturers off guard.”AdChoices广告Google chalked the news up to “rumors and speculation” and refused to comment on it, saying generically, “Our long-term goal is to collaborate with a broad community of consumer electronics manufacturers to help drive the next-generation TV-watching experience, and we look forward to working with other partners to bring more devices to market in the coming years.”Units from Sony and Logitech have already hit the market, of course. Samsung will apparently be the one manufacturer to introduce Google TV hardware at ces. Toshiba, for its part, seems to have confirmed that it won’t be introducing complementary hardware for the show.Said a Toshiba exec, “We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S. We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right time frame.”

No exceptions. We have introduced lifesaving legislation. We will not be diluting it. Speaking to the media on Monday, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that his initial sense is that he’d be “sceptical about it as a proposal that’s workable”. “If someone is banned from driving they’re banned for a reason. If you were to make an exception around travelling to and from work I’d wonder about the enforceability of that,” Varadkar said. How would you establish whether they were or not going to and from work?

In New Zealand, banned drivers can apply for an exemption if a driving ban causes them “extreme hardship”, such as a need to get to work.Applicants for a limited licence in New Zealand have to apply to a court and prove that not being able to drive causes extreme hardship to themselves or undue hardship to someone else, such as an employer or dependents.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Give ’em a hand: Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are heading back to the Super Bowl.Brady shook off a hand injury and threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola with 2:48 remaining, rallying the Patriots to a 24-20 comeback victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC championship Sunday.Brady, wearing a black bandage on his right hand after needing stitches to close a cut that happened on a play during practice earlier in the week, showed no signs of being hampered.And, with the game — and the season — possibly on the line, the Patriots star came up big again.“I’ve had a lot worse,” Brady said. “I didn’t know that on Wednesday. It was a crazy injury. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday was a little scary. Then I started getting some confidence and today we did just enough to win.”Brady finished 26 of 38 for 290 yards and two touchdowns to Amendola for the Patriots (15-3), who’ll play Philadelphia in Minneapolis on Feb. 4.It’s the eighth Super Bowl appearance for Brady and coach Bill Belichick, who have won five times — including last year’s 34-28 overtime rally against the Atlanta Falcons.“It’s pretty amazing. Just to be on a team that wins these kinds of games, it’s just a great accomplishment,” Brady said. “I’m just so proud of everyone on our team, we made so many great plays. Defense played so great when they needed to.”
As you can see from the scores, this was a very competitive match. Both teams fought very hard. Brittany Cimaglia got Wilmington out to 4-0 lead on very strong serving, but we struggled against Wakefields first server, giving up eight straight points to fall behind 4-8. We were very happy with the way that our team fought back after that to finally win the set 26-24. Sometimes losing a tight set, can adversely affect a team going into the next set. and that seems to have been the case for Wakefield as they never really got going in the second set. To their credit, they recovered in the third set, and made it very competitive. Wilmington held a 24-18 lead in the third set, and let Wakefield chip away get as close as 24-23 before closing the set and match out.This was the team best serving performance of the season so far. They served 89% as a team, led by Britt Cimaglia, Anna Rideout and Gabby Bond, who all served 100%. Our serve receive was better in that we reduced the number of passing errors. Free ball passing also improved, led by Gabby Bond, Reagan Sweeney and Anna Rideout. Better passing allowed the team to run a more consistent offense, led by Savannah Andersen in the middle with 5 kills, and Gabby Bond with 4 kills.Coming UpThis is another busy week for the team with a non-league match against Newburyport on Monday; an away match against Stoneham on Tuesday, and another away match against Watertown on Thursday.At the end of the week, the team is now 2-5 on the season, and looking forward to continuing to improve their performance and compete at a higher and higher level.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Kolkata: The Kolkata Police has taken an initiative to get lookout notice issued against the absconding persons who are involved in the unauthorised withdrawal of money from various bank accounts.Sources said that there are more than two persons, who are also foreign nationals, involved in the racket. Two Romanian members of the racket have already been arrested by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Kolkata Police.After interrogating the duo, the police have come to know about some more members of the racket and initiated a search for them. According to a senior police officer, the step to get lookout notice issued against them has been taken up so that they cannot escape through any airport or port in the country.

Do you keep worrying about work even when you are away from office? Planning how to resolve incomplete work tasks can help employees switch off from work and enjoy their evenings, advises a new study.In a study of people’s ability to detach themselves from work, Brandon Smit from Ball State University, Indiana used an online questionnaire to survey 103 employees pursuing 1,127 work goals.Overall, he observed they had more difficulty detaching from work tasks that had been left uncompleted, especially when these were important to them. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’However, one group of employees was encouraged to create plans by writing down where, when, and how they would complete these unfinished tasks.Smit found that they detached themselves from work more effectively than employees who did not create plans.“If you have an important deadline looming on the horizon, for example, your brain will keep nudging you with reminders, which makes it difficult to get a break from work demands,” Smit said. “It seems like we have the ability to ‘turn off’, or at least ‘turn down’ these cognitive processes by planning out where, when, and how goals will be accomplished,” he said. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThis is primarily true for people who already have a difficult time forgetting about work during leisure because their job plays a central role in their life.“For them, a simple change to their work routine like task planning near the end of the workday would likely make a real difference,” Smit said.The study was published in the Journal of Organizational and Occupational Psychology.
