first_imgArsenal boss Emery: We’ll keep playing out from the backby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveUnai Emery admits Arsenal must improve their passing out from the back for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.The Gunners’ sloppy distribution against Watford on Saturday saw them blow a two-goal lead to settle for a draw.And Emery is expecting similar high pressure from Frankfurt on Thursday.”To learn is first to have analysis on how we can improve, how we can recover our confidence playing with our objectives, starting and controlling the match, what we are doing with the ball.”Really on Sunday we needed more, that’s what we wanted. We made some mistakes and conceded some goals.”We spoke and we are working yesterday and today on how we can play tomorrow. Frankfurt are usually doing a very high press, with very fast players around the opponents.”Tomorrow we need to improve on the mistakes we made on Sunday to do better. Also we want to achieve another way on the pitch, how we can break the pressing.”After we want to control every game with the ball, with the positioning. We did that on Sunday in the first half, but in the second half we didn’t. And tomorrow is a new challenge, how we are improving, our positioning, our control and our ability to break the press.”Also how we can play the long ball and make some actions in the attacking third, to get the ball, to score and to win the match. Tomorrow is another challenge for us to show we can improve from the game on Sunday.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Planting sugar cane for bioenergy is an area that holds promise, he noted further.Mr. Stanberry told conference delegates that the production of food for the tourist sector is a significant area of opportunity.He pointed out that only a “very small” percentage of food consumed by tourists is coming from local farmers. That is a captive market that we must exploit.”The Permanent Secretary said the Government is committed to the development of the agriculture and has invested in the provision of irrigation systems for farming areas.President of the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), Dr. Derrick Deslandes, noted that Jamaica can be competitive in the growing of several crops, and what is needed is the confidence of the investing community.“We believe that Jamaica can compete; we study prices, we look at Jamaica’s cost of production data…it is just a matter of convincing the right investors to invest in those critical areas that can move us forward,” he told the gathering.Other speakers at the forum included head of Farm Up Jamaica, Neil Curtis, and Dr. Julius Garvey, son of Marcus Garvey, Jamaica’s first National Hero.last_img read more

Indie Crossword Puzzlers Are Shaking Up A Very Square World

The New York Times3.5 The Washington Post3.9 BuzzFeed3.7 Wall Street Journal3.4 Newsday3.9 CrosSynergy3.3 The Times’ puzzle, though, isn’t the most highly rated on the Web. Indies may be ragtag, but their quality can be remarkably high. The popular blog Diary of a Crossword Fiend lets readers rate a selection of puzzles each day, from one to five stars. Indies do well, with indie icon Matt Gaffney’s topping the list and American Values Club and Quigley’s puzzles averaging above the Times so far this year. (Note, of course, that these ratings are subjective, and come from a highly selected sample of the universe of crossword solvers, namely those who rate crosswords on a crossword blog.)But that the indies are well-received doesn’t make them well-compensated. They’re wrestling with the same confusion about sustainable business models as all the other media upstarts.The New York Times has it relatively easy, with nearly 200,000 digital crossword subscribers, good for over $2 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2016, according to a company press release. When you figure in the hardcopy subscriptions and newsstand purchases due to the puzzle, plus the countless book collections, the Times crossword puzzle is almost certainly worth well north of $10 million a year. (The Times wouldn’t comment beyond what was disclosed in the press release.) Little of that money goes to the constructors: At its rate of $300 for a daily puzzle and $1,000 for a Sunday, I estimate that a little less than $150,000 a year is paid to the crossword constructors themselves.Outside the Times, though, monetization approaches vary wildly. The American Values Club crossword, the indie edited by Tausig, is subscription based. A year’s worth of puzzles is $20, or you can get a single puzzle for a buck, and proceeds are divvied up among constructors quarterly. Depending on the quarter, this model can yield more than the Times’ $300-per-puzzle rate, according to Tausig. “I’ve been a constructor for a long time, and also because I’m a hardcore Marxist, I want to put my money where my mouth is,” he said. Constructors there also retain some future rights to their puzzles. Tausig didn’t give me a precise count of his subscribers, but said there were no fewer than 3,000.Quigley, who runs an eponymous site, was inspired by Radiohead’s 2007 release of “In Rainbows” when he created his pay-what-you-want model. He publishes free puzzles on Mondays and Thursdays, and provides a “tip your constructor” PayPal link on his homepage. Between direct payments and the advertisement it provides for other paying puzzle gigs, Quigley estimated that his site is responsible for two-thirds of his income. He claimed an average of 12,000 people solve a typical puzzle on his site.And Matt Gaffney — whom other indie constructors described to me as the “juggernaut” and the “silverback gorilla” of the field and who tops the ratings list — oversees a mini-factory that publishes eight puzzles a week. About a year ago, Gaffney switched to a subscription-only model for his daily puzzle ($24 a year) which, he told me, has 500 to 600 subscribers. “It seems to be kind of the wave of the future,” he said. “But I think big media, regular media and indie puzzles will always coexist and coevolve for the foreseeable future. I don’t see one putting the other out of business.” Despite that, indies “are where all the crazy, new, fun stuff is happening.”In many ways, the crossword tumult mirrors that of the broader media world, pockmarked with hirings, firings, launches, closings and scandal. BuzzFeed hit the brakes, and USA Today ousted its crossword editor in May. But others hit the gas. The Wall Street Journal added a daily puzzle last September, and The Washington Post tapped a new crossword constructor in November. And Slate, stalwart of internet media, will feature the American Values Club crossword in its paid section, Slate Plus, starting in September.Madison, the former BuzzFeed editor, who has interned for both Shortz and Tausig, is heading back to the indie world himself. According to Madison, the BuzzFeed puzzle’s average 40,000 to 50,000 views didn’t justify its cost at the virally oriented site. (I emailed BuzzFeed for comment but have not yet received one.) He recently announced a new crossword project called Solve the Internet. Details were sketchy, but the description he gave me was heavy on “internet” and “social.” Madison wouldn’t offer a specific launch date but said to expect it soon.“I don’t understand what he’s talking about, but that’s a fantastic thing,” Quigley, 42, said of Madison’s puzzle ideas. “If we don’t go out and try to bring in that younger generation, we’ve got the buggy whip, and we’re gonna get blown out by something else.” Fireball3.9 Jonesin’ Crosswords3.3 Crossword Nation3.9 Brendan Emmett Quigley3.7 Los Angeles Times3.6 Matt Gaffney4.0 American Values Club3.6 Most highly rated crosswords Gawker wasn’t the only irreverent, iconoclastic internet media property to say farewell recently. To a much quieter dirge, the BuzzFeed crossword puzzle published its final edition this month. Its editor, 23-year-old puzzle wunderkind Caleb Madison, for whom this was his first job, left the company to strike out on his own.The BuzzFeed crossword, which launched in October, promised a millennial upheaval to the musty crossword genre: an internet-native, slang-fluent, pop-culture-obsessed puzzle aimed at young solvers. There was hope, given BuzzFeed’s large amounts of traffic, that it would serve as a meaningful competitor to the starchy, hegemonic New York Times crossword. “BuzzFeed Is Revolutionizing the Crossword Puzzle,” an Observer headline declared last year.It didn’t. Yet while BuzzFeed’s puzzle revolution fizzled, a devoted band of ragtag agitators remains devoted to the cause. A vibrant ecosystem of independent crosswords — “indies” — exists on the internet, its component puzzles multiplying and evolving, finding their niche and trying to find ways to survive. And some of them can outrate the gold standard over at the Times.“I think of the indie world like we’re all craft beer brewers,” Brendan Emmett Quigley, a professional puzzle constructor, told me. The Times is a Budweiser lager; the indies are small-batch saisons and IPAs.“My favorite thing about indie puzzles is the timeliness,” Neville Fogarty, an avid indie solver who helped found the Indie 500 crossword tournament, told me. Indie puzzles don’t have to wait months in a publication queue, as they would at the Times. They also aren’t subject to the stylistic constraints of a large media institution. Topics and themes, however recent, modern, niche or profane, are fair game. Nor are they subject to the physical constraints of a major newspaper. With few exceptions, all daily Times puzzles use 15-by-15 grids with rotational symmetry, a convention indies can and do break.Over (craft) beers recently, Ben Tausig,1It was Tausig whose tweet, about a suspiciously duplicated puzzle, eventually led to the FiveThirtyEight investigation into accusations of plagiarism against the crossword editor Timothy Parker. the editor of the acclaimed indie American Values Club crossword, reflected on the early days of indies, over a decade ago. “We were all out in the woods,” he said. “Papers were dying, papers were dropping their crosswords.” And so some crossword designers decided to go it alone. A risky proposition, but one that came with aesthetic upside. These sylvan constructors could rewrite the stylebook. “Crosswords were staid, you know? As much as I enjoyed them, there was always this feeling that the voice of the Times was not my generational voice. It was like, what if you made a crossword about rap, or something? That felt really radical at the time.”Criticism of the Times puzzle seems to have expanded of late, beyond the stylistic and into the political. It’s not just that the Times puzzle is staid, or geared toward olds. It’s been accused of tone deafness on issues of race and gender. A recent clue for the answer HAREM was “Decidedly nonfeminist women’s group,” and the clue “Exasperated comment from a feminist” led to the answer MEN. “Gangsta rap characters” were THUGS.But Will Shortz, the Times puzzle editor since 1993, is an icon for a reason. All the constructors I spoke to praised him for elevating the Times puzzle to its current station. “The Times’ job is arguably much harder, because they have to walk that thin line of making sure everyone is included,” Quigley said. It’s come a long way, too. The Times published its first crossword in 1942. If you scrape off a thick layer of dust, you’ll find a puzzle riddled with obscurities (the poets CRABBE and TASSO, the seaport HAGI, the Dutch town EDE) and ditchwater-dull clues (both IAN and YVON are clued as “Man’s name”). And even if some indie puzzlers would like to foment a revolution, it already took one to get the Times to the solid position it’s in today. Shortz oversaw a transition away from the dryest trivia to a puzzle that does include some popular culture. He has said that anything the paper covers should be fair game for the crossword.“The Times’ crossword audience is broad, from teens up to as old as people get,” Shortz told me in an email. “But the average [age] is higher than that for the indies. So in terms of overall tone and cultural references, the Times puzzle will skew a little older than the indies.” Shortz also mentioned the need for the Times puzzle to have a longer shelf life than the indies, which means it eschews some timelier subjects. The puzzle appears in syndication six weeks after its original publication, and sometimes in books years later.

Buckeye brainteasers 5 questions regarding OSUs matchup with Miami

The No. 17-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (2-0) hit the road for their first away game of the 2011 season against the unranked Miami Hurricanes (0-1), which were picked to finish second in the Atlantic Coast Conference. OSU holds a 2-1 advantage in the all-time series against Miami, including a 31-24 double-overtime victory in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl for the 2002 BCS National Championship. Last season’s 36-24 win against the Hurricanes was vacated as part of OSU’s self-imposed penalties for NCAA violations. Here is a discussion of some of the pressing concerns facing the Buckeyes’ in their Week 3 contest against Miami. 1. Should I be concerned about last week’s 27-22 win against Toledo and, if so, how much? It’s reasonable to be worried after Saturday’s closer-than-expected win against Toledo, but only to a certain point. One area of question is the success the Rockets’ quarterbacking duo of sophomore Terrance Owens and junior Austin Dantin had in the game. Owens and Dantin combined to throw for 292 yards against the OSU defense. Perhaps the biggest worry for Buckeye Nation was that their team struggled to stop the offensive weapons Toledo figured to rely on heading into the game — junior wide receiver and kick returner Eric Page and senior running back Adonis Thomas combined for 372 all-purpose yards in the game. But the fact that OSU dropped only two spots in the Associated Press’ Top 25 poll from No. 15 to No. 17 could be a sign of respect for the Rockets’ playmakers, and Toledo earned every bit of that respect. For all the missed opportunities and big plays allowed to the Rockets’ predictable playmakers, the Buckeyes defense came up with the stops it needed to win the game. As several players and coaches said after the game, OSU bent but didn’t break. Toledo made a game of it Saturday and that can’t be wholly negative. Buckeye fans got a scare watching the game, but more importantly, players got a formidable test before their first road trip. 2. How will previously-suspended OSU players — sophomore defensive back Corey Brown, junior running back Jordan Hall and junior defensive back Travis Howard — figure into the game plan against the Hurricanes Saturday? The NCAA reinstated Brown, Hall and Howard on Tuesday. Each player was suspended for the Buckeyes’ first two games for receiving white envelopes containing $200 from a university booster at a Feb. 19 charity event in Cleveland. Coach Luke Fickell said on several occasions that he would focus on the players that were present and not suspended. Additionally, Fickell said the players returning from punishment would have to win their jobs back from the starters that filled in for them during wins against Akron and Toledo. Offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Jim Bollman announced Wednesday that Hall will start at tailback for the Buckeyes against Miami even though Fickell said the sophomore running back Carlos Hyde was the team’s starter after the Toledo win. In all likelihood, perhaps Hall also outperformed Hyde in practice this week. Sophomore cornerback Dominic Clarke has played well in Howard’s absence and was also listed as a starter on the team’s depth chart, which was released to the media on Tuesday. Howard and Brown were not listed on the depth chart. 3. Which players on the Hurricanes could hurt the Buckeyes on Saturday? The list of Miami players whom are certain to pose a threat to OSU starts with redshirt sophomore running back Lamar Miller, who rushed for 119 yards on 18 carries while also scoring a touchdown in the Hurricanes’ season-opening loss to Maryland. Miller will also pose a dual threat to the Buckeyes as he amassed 100 return yards on four kick returns against the Terrapins. As far as wide receiving targets are concerned, none of the Hurricanes’ receivers put up eye-popping numbers against Maryland. Sophomore quarterback Stephen Morris spread the ball around in the season opener, completing passes to nine different players in the game. Sophomore Allen Hurns led all the Hurricanes’ receivers with 69 yards on four catches. And, of course, there’s senior quarterback Jacory Harris, who is returning from a one-game suspension. Harris was one of eight players suspended for receiving impermissible benefits from former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro, who is now serving a 20-year prison sentence for his involvement in a Ponzi scheme. The Miami quarterback hasn’t seen action since Dec. 31, 2010, when the Hurricanes’ lost, 33-17, to Notre Dame in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Given the amount of time it has been since Harris’ last meaningful snap, it is hard to say how threatening he’ll be on Saturday. In 2010, Harris threw for 1,793 yards and 14 touchdowns against 15 interceptions, with four of those interceptions coming against the Buckeyes during the teams’ Week 2 matchup last fall. Harris figures to be an “X” factor in Saturday’s game. Another interception-laden performance against OSU would likely be Miami’s downfall. A strong 2011 debut for Harris could have the Buckeyes’ defense back-peddling and chasing the ‘Canes throughout the game. 4. How will this young Buckeyes team react to a hostile, away-game environment? When you consider that members of this OSU team have played in famously large and loud Big Ten stadiums such as Michigan Stadium, Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium and Penn State’s Beaver Stadium, Miami’s Sun Life Stadium just doesn’t compare. Miami students and fans will make some noise for the nationally-televised night game, but it won’t be anything the Buckeyes haven’t experienced before. According to a Hurricanes’ press release, their home field holds 74,916 fans — six Big Ten stadiums hold more. Upperclassmen leadership will be key for the Buckeyes, and many members of the team are capable of providing it to the team’s underclassmen. 5. Can quarterback Joe Bauserman lead the Buckeyes to the third win against Miami in program history? In a word, yes. Fans booed and jeered the redshirt senior quarterback on Saturday against Toledo while simultaneously calling for Braxton Miller to go under center for the team. Statistics support any decision by Fickell to entrust the team’s fate to Bauserman on Saturday. Bauserman has passed for 352 yards and four touchdowns against Akron and Toledo. Most important, though, is the fact that he hasn’t thrown an interception or been sacked. Sun Life Stadium may or may not present an intimidating atmosphere on this weekend, but it’s still worth questioning how Miller, a true freshman who has never played in any kind of hostile environment at the collegiate level, would respond to those conditions. The Buckeyes would do well to stick with Bauserman — the better-known commodity — throughout Saturday’s game. EXTRA POINT — Suspension updates for both teams OSU’s Daniel Herron, DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas, who each sold OSU football memorabilia and received improper benefits in the form of tattoos, will remain suspended until the team’s Oct. 8 game at Nebraska. For Miami, Harris, along with linebacker Sean Spence, defensive tackle Marcus Forston, defensive end Adewale Ojomo and receiver Travis Benjamin return to the Hurricanes’ lineup Saturday. Safety Ray-Ray Armstrong, defensive end Olivier Vernon and tight end Dyron Dye, however, remain suspended for receiving impermissible benefits from Shapiro.

Real Madrid stopped negotiations for Palacios

first_imgExequiel Palacios’ agent has revealed that Real Madrid has stopped all negotiations for the River Plate star due to the Libertadores final.The effects of the Copa Libertadores final in Madrid are starting to take some victims, the latest one is Exequiel Palacios from River Plate according to his agent.The player had an advanced negotiation to sign for Los Blancos during the winter, but the whole situation with the final has delayed and maybe even completely stopped the process, agent Renato Corsi spoke to Diario AS about the state of the whole deal and revealed that there are other clubs who are interested in signing the player as soon as possible.Corsi spoke about the heartbreak that was not being able to play the final at the Monumental for Palacios, the player who gave his club the ticket to the big match after scoring a penalty in the semifinals.Según @diarioas , la interminable final de la Libertadores frena el pase de Exequiel Palacios a Real Madrid, pero no lo pone en riesgohttps://t.co/sC0DdCRpQN— Claudio Mauri (@hcmauri) November 26, 2018“As the River Plate fan and as a football player for this club for the last ten years, it’s obvious that Exequiel wanted to play the final at the Monumental in Argentina,” said Corsi to Diario AS.“With this whole problem that took place over there, he would also love to play in that stadium and in a country as beautiful as Spain.”“I really hope things work out and he can play for Real Madrid. We have received calls from Inter, AS Roma, Wolfsburg…”“There are many interested clubs but Real Madrid is the one that has shown the biggest interest.”“This whole situation of the suspended final between River and Boca, is the reason that both boards of directors haven’t been able to talk about the transfer yet.”“But I gotta say that Real Madrid has been nothing but straightforward and polite with us, both me and my partner.”“Both clubs have already agreed that they will speak again when the final has passed, they were already going to keep having meetings over Exequiel Palacios after both matches.”“But everything happened and they didn’t talk. Real Madrid will call us in the next few days. We also spoke with Barcelona, but we never reached an agreement.”Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“Zanetti from Inter also called me, but none of those clubs advanced as much as Real Madrid,” he added.⚪🔴⚪💪 pic.twitter.com/JzkHmLPIuu— Exequiel Palacios (@exepalacios_) November 20, 2018“Exequiel actually had a chance to join Torino about one and a half years ago. The problem with this offer he got, is that we didn’t think he was yet ready to go to Europe and we all decided that staying in River was the better idea,” he continued.“After that, he continued playing for the club and Marcelo (Gallardo) helped him keep growing little by little until he achieved this level of performance.”“Thanks to his efforts and the manager’s support, Exequiel grew to become the player he is today. We have worked with him for five years now, he is a very humble lad, just like his family. He always played the way he does right now.”“It’s evident that he started playing with a little more attitude this year thanks to Marcelo Gallardo, the manager helped him grow and even improve several aspects of his football,” he concluded.Exequiel Palacios will have a unique chance of showing Real Madrid and Spain what he is capable of, when he plays the Copa Libertadores final against Boca Juniors at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday.As an offensive midfielder with extraordinary creative capabilities, it is expected that Palacios can become one of Argentina’s biggest export talents in recent times.Real Madrid will have bought a great talent if the meetings between then and River Plate turn out positive, the reports of his transfer to Spain are all true, only they got a little bit behind for the reasons that his agent just explained.Vamos todos juntos banda ⚪🔴⚪!! pic.twitter.com/6TOSAWFJhf— Exequiel Palacios (@exepalacios_) October 31, 2018Where would you play Exequiel Palacios in the Real Madrid lineup?
