Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he considered shelving plans to sign Alisson in favour of sticking with Loris Karius.After seeing his fellow German endure a torrid time in the 2018 Champions League final, serious questions were asked of the goalkeeping department at Anfield.It was later revealed that Karius had suffered concussion during a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid – following a clash with Sergio Ramos – but his display will always be remembered for two costly errors.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The criticism he faced led Klopp to weigh up the merits of sticking with an under-fire performer, in a show of faith to those already on his books, but in the end the decision was taken to make a record-breaking £65 million (£83m) move for Brazil international Alisson.The Liverpool boss told Kicker on the dilemma he faced during the summer transfer window: “We simply identified another keeper, who is better, and signed him.“I didn’t tell Karius what he wanted to hear, but how it is. The Champions League final had nothing to do with us getting Alisson. Even if he had won it and Alisson would have been on the market we would have still signed him.“How the people reacted negatively to Karius after the final, tried to isolate him, almost made me not get Alisson and rather stick it out with Karius. But we had to be professional. Our job is to have the best players on every position.“[Karius] is now 25, at an age, in which keepers keep improving. All the best keepers make mistakes. But sometimes timing is important in life. If Loris makes a mistake now it isn’t cool. In eight years nobody will care. We are totally happy with him.”While Klopp eventually opted to bring in a new goalkeeper, he opted against bolstering his defensive ranks.That is because he had already landed Virgil van Dijk for £75m ($96m) in January and remains convinced that World Cup finalist Dejan Lovren can be a reliable Premier League performer.He added on links to other big-money centre-halves: “That is continues discussion that I don’t understand.”There is no discussion when it comes to Van Dijk. Dejan Lovren played the Champions League and World Cup final. To not stick with him after that would be crazy.”He is a world class defender who once in a while, only once in a while, has his ups and downs. But those are exaggerated to such an extent that I want to ask: have you forgotten that he played fantastic for four weeks in Russia?” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web
Tyrone Lockhart, who played for Georgetown in the 1980s, is CEO of the Advocates for Athletic Equity.In a matter of months, Black college basketball coaches went from not having an organization to support their cause and chime the bell for a change in hiring practices to two bodies that will take different paths to achieve the same mission.The National Association for Coaching Equity and Development was formed to address the lack of African-American coaches in Division I college basketball. It has 40 coaches on board, including Tubby Smith, John Thompson III, Shaka Smart, Paul Hewitt and others.In Indianapolis, in the NCAA headquarters building, is the Advocates for Athletic Equity, an organization headed by former Georgetown player Tyrone Lockhart. Its mission is to increase the dismal number of minority coaches, focusing on all ethnic groups.Both organizations say they are picking up where the now-defunct Black Coaches Association left off. Once a force in fighting causes for African-Americans in the profession, the BCA faded with a lack of funding and, not coincidentally, so did the number of Black coaches.Blacks now make up less than 17 percent of head coaches in college basketball’s 330 or so Division I teams while African-American players represent 60 percent of the athletes. It’s the lowest percentage in 20 years.Smith and others see their organization as totally independent and seemed to indirectly convey that the Advocates for Athletic Equity, because it is housed in the NCAA offices in Indianapolis and has received some start-up money from the governing body, will be less aggressive or compromised in its efforts.Lockhart, in an exclusive interview with Atlanta Blackstar, refuted that notion while outlining his and the organization’s plans for change.ABS: How do you look at the National Association for Coaching Equity and its mission?Lockhart: The two organizations have talked. We’re supportive of each other. They may have to do things a little more drastic, whether that’s lawsuits, whether that’s protests … We understand that. We’re supportive. We both have the mission of increasing the number of (Black) head coaches. Tactics and strategy achieving those goals may be a little different. Hopefully, we will be able to partner on one of the key elements that we both agree on, which is professional development. … It’s like the Civil Rights movement in that the NAACP and the Urban League were separate entities working for the same cause.ABS: How will you go about business with the Advocates for Athletic Equity?Lockhart: Because BCA was dormant for a while, we’re housed at NCAA. Housed there, but separate computer system, separate phone lines. The NCAA believes that this organization is extremely important to be successful with what’s going on in college athletics right now. They are, in fact, providing some seed money in order to revive it and make some progress. But I report directly to the (AAE’s) board. Yes, there will be some things that we decide that will be opposed to what the NCAA stands for or believes in. But we will decide as an organization what will be effective for our mission (not the NCAA).ABS: How alarming is the 17 percent Black coaches in the NCAA to you and the organization?Lockhart: The numbers are low, and we know that they are low. My job to work with the membership and strategize on how to attack that. Our No. 1 priority is to promote our coaches for positions of leadership. The one thing, too, with the organization is that we’re focusing on coaches and coaches only. In the past, Floyd Keith had done an excellent job at bringing the organization to prominence and having some growth. But I think the organization took on too many things: athletic administrators, etc. My marching orders are to focus in on coaches and coaches only: African-American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian and so forth. That’s our charge.ABS: Does a variation of the NFL’s Rooney Rule, which requires Black candidates get an interview before any teams hire, have a place in your approach to change in the NCAA?Lockhart: We would favor any role or program that favors ethic minority coaches. The NCAA does not do the hiring; it’s the member institutes and the conferences. So, in working with our coaches, we have to ask: Do we partner with the NCAA or do we go directly to the conferences or the member institutions? We need to make sure we’re targeting the right group to make the most impact.ABS: How do you tackle athletic directors, 80 percent whom are white who over the years hired people who look like them, who they know or are comfortable with?Lockhart: The part in your piece about colleges hiring search firms and “Good ‘Ole Boy Network” is true, and one of the things we have to do is infiltrate that and establish networking opportunities, social interactions where we can get our top coaches a part of this deal and be able to highlight our coaches and the good things that they have been doing. For years, part of (athletic directors’) stories has been, “Well, we don’t know these coaches. We don’t know where they are. They’re kinda hiding out.” But we want to establish relationships and events where our coaches are featured and highlighted and can change mindsets … show they can handle crises, etc. There is no doubt that Black coaches are talented and can coach. No doubt. We have to show … they can handle the off-the-court stuff so a president or A.D. can be comfortable with those leaders on the court and off the court in the community. We have a great opportunity. We know the task is uphill. But we’re taking it on.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 13, 2016 – Police need to find a blue colored Nissan March which drove off with 26 year old Sorineida Morena Arias on Sunday; it was around 4 a.m and at this point there was nothing to suggest that she was taken by force; though police say that has not been ruled out. In a media conference this morning we learned more about the investigation including that a strong tip led Police to search in the Cooper Jack area and due to the canal system there, the search will be expanded to the waters of Cooper Jack.Investigators reminded that the case is still a missing person’s case, but in response to a Magnetic Media question, it was explained that comparisons are being made between this case and the one in April where another 26 year old Dominican was first missing, then found dead. Pirates Cove will be searched and it was confirmed that officials from the Dominican Republic have been in touch with the Police about the concerning trend where it seems Dominican women are targets. Police opted not to weigh in on what is going on possibly; saying it is just too early in the probe to say.Look out for any blue coloured Nissan March and report it, it may lead to clues to finding this young woman who is also a mother.

June 11, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News, Politics Tags: Immigration AP, AP Mexico says Guard deployment beginning, forms migrant team MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican officials said Tuesday they are beginning deployment of the country’s new National Guard for immigration enforcement, an accelerated commitment of a 6,000-strong force made as part of an agreement with the United States to head off threatened U.S. tariffs on imports from Mexico.President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard also announced that a team of five officials, including a general and a prison director, has been formed to implement the immigration plan.Ebrard said that Gen. Vicente Antonio Hernández Sánchez, commander of the Tapachula military zone near the border with Guatemala, will begin a tour of the south “to speed up the deployment in the area.”Cuban migrants land on the Mexican side of the Suchiate River on the border with Guatemala, after crossing on a raft near Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, early Tuesday, June 11, 2019. Mexican officials say they are beginning deployment of 6,000 National Guard troops for immigration enforcement, an accelerated commitment made as part of an agreement with the United States last week to head off threatened U.S. tariffs on imports from Mexico. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)The main objective is to register migrants, offer them options for regularizing their immigration status and return those who don’t want to register, he added.Ebrard did not mention detentions, which have risen notably in recent months, but said there is a need to expand and improve overcrowded immigration facilities that operate as de facto detention centers.Another deployment is going to the frontier with the United States to attend to migrants who have been returned to Mexico while their asylum claims are processed in U.S. courts.As part of the deal reached last Friday with Washington, Mexico agreed to an expansion of the program known as Migrant Protection Protocol, though the United States has run into its own logistical obstacles to ramping it up.There have been more than 11,000 returns by migrants to Mexico under MPP since it launched in January, according to the most recent figures from the Mexican government.Mexico’s National Guard is a newly formed force tasked with policing rising insecurity. It is separate from the military and is legally supposed to be under civilian command, though it is largely made up of current or former soldiers and federal police.

James Martin/CNET Last year, Google stoked intense controversy when it announced Duplex, a technology that uses eerily human-sounding artificial intelligence software to book restaurant reservations and hair appointments. Immediately, the project spurred a debate over ethics in artificial intelligence and generated fear over a robot’s ability to deceive people.Now Google is unveiling its follow up — and it’s a lot less disturbing. At the company’s I/O developer conference on Tuesday, the search giant announced an update to Duplex called “Duplex on the Web” that’ll allow it to make more types of bookings. Now it will also be able to handle car rentals and movie tickets. Aug 26 • Android Q has a name: Android 10. Here’s how you’ll use it But this one doesn’t involve speech-mimicking robots that spark debate over AI ethics. It’s basically like autofill on steroids. It automates the process of filling out forms you’d find on the mobile web.Here’s how it works: You’d say something like, “Hey Google, get me a rental car from National for my next trip.” The Assistant then pulls up National’s website on your phone and starts filling out the fields in real time.Throughout the process you see a progress bar, like you’d see if you were downloading a file. Whenever the system needs more information, like a price or seat selection, the process pauses and prompts you to make a selection. When it’s done, you tap to confirm the booking or payment. The system fills out the form by using data culled from your calendar, Gmail inbox and Chrome autofill (like your credit card information and login info). The update will launch later this year on Android phones.The new Duplex announcement is much tamer than last year’s debut, which freaked out audiences from the very moment Google CEO Sundar Pichai presented the demo. The artificial intelligence software is patterned after human speech, using verbal tics like “uh” and “um.” It speaks with the cadence of a real person, pausing before responding and elongating certain words as though it’s buying time to think.The tech brought to life a vision of what a voice assistant could sound like in the future: Natural and lifelike, instead of the semirobitic, disembodied voice you hear coming from a Google Home or Amazon Echo today.The demo immediately raised flags for AI experts, industry watchers and consumers, who worried about the ethics of creating robots that could fool people into thinking they were talking to other humans. Google later said it would build in disclosures so people would know they were talking to automated software. Now the feature is available on both Android phones and iPhones, in 43 states. Still, the visceral backlash was a key moment for Google, Scott Huffman, head of engineering for the Google Assistant, told me earlier this year. “The strength of the reaction surprised me,” he said. “It made it clear to us how important those societal questions are going forward.”The new update also redefines how Google is thinking of Duplex. It’s not just the name of the search giant’s human-sounding AI. It’s more of a class of software that helps with performing tasks, and for now that’s booking — whether it’s over the phone, on the web or somewhere else in the future. “The way we think about Duplex, in broad strokes, it’s a model of technology that allows us to automate tasks,” Manuel Bronstein, vice president of product for the Assistant, said in an interview last week. “It just happens to be that the first task that we showed to automate was making a phone call to a restaurant.”Originally published at 10:25 a.m. PT.

Shubman Gill and Andre Russell after KKR defeated SRH at Eden Gardens on March 24, 2019.Kolkata Knight Riders InstagramAt one point 53 runs were required off 16 balls and Russell then took over to hit 7 sixes and a boundary to finish the game off. With one run left to get in the last over, Russell sprinted through for the winning run as if he were a Jamaican sprinter and then punched his chest a few times. It was a miracle and Russell is making it a habit to script miracles for KKR. On the night, the big Jamaican scored 48 runs from 13 balls. To recount Russell’s innings since the 18th over, it was – dot ball, dot ball, six runs, six runs, six runs, one run, six runs, six runs, six runs, four runs, six runs. Earlier in the evening, Dinesh Karthik won the toss and elected to bowl first. Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers helped the home team reach 205 and for most of the chase, it looked as though it would be enough for RCB to notch up their first victory of the tournament. But Andre Russell thought otherwise. Andre Russell.ReutersRussell was naturally delighted after the match and said that although it was an improbable situation, he was confident. “I was confident when I went out to bat. DK was telling me to take a few balls to see how the pitch is behaving. I was watching in the dugout on TV and had a fair idea. When you need 68 off 20-odd balls, it doesn’t happen everyday,” said Russell.”Need to put your body on the line. The nature of T20 is such that one over can change the momentum. That’s why I never give up. A part of me was saying that the runs needed were too much but I wanted to fight and eventually, we won with five balls spare. The support is good from the boys and I am in a good space so that I can express myself. No ground is big enough for me I guess, I just trust my power. Hand-eye coordination is the key (for low full tosses) as they aren’t easy to hit. I try short arm jabs as extending the arms can put you in trouble. Can’t explain much, rather show that on the field,” Russell concluded with a wide grin on his face. This is how Twitter reacted to the carnage.KKR fans looking at Andre Russell.#RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/RopvA0jlpK— BW Pandey (@bw_pandey) April 5, 2019Rcb players trying to smile after today’s match #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/ZRel9qjbmK— Hunny Bansal (@Hunny_bansal) April 5, 2019Indian Cricket fan to RCB..#RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/ZaQAADbkvn— Gujju Baba (@Gujju_Jalwa) April 5, 2019He faced 13 balls and 7 of them were hit for six.

We needed to be more clever, nothing came off and we just cracked under pressure. That’s been our story this season so far,” said Kohli.”If you bowl with not enough bravery in the crucial overs, it’s always going to be difficult against power-hitters like Russell. I wasn’t really happy getting out at that moment, could’ve got 20-25 more. AB didn’t get much strike in the end. I thought the runs were enough on the board, we didn’t have enough composure. If you can’t defend 75 in the last four overs, then I don’t know if you can defend 100. We can have a bit of chat about what went wrong, apart from that nothing much you can say. I don’t think talking enough helps all the time. You need to give the guys some space and come back stronger in the next game. It’s been a disappointing season so far, but we are still optimistic about our chances. We just have to believe in ourselves that we can turn things around,” an extremely disappointed Kohli concluded.
Sunny Deol joins BJP; likely to contest Lok Sabha elections from GurdaspurIBTimes INBJP’s Lok Sabha candidate from East Delhi, Gautam Gambhir during a roadshow ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, in New Delhi on April 26, 2019.IANSTrouble seems to be following cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir after an FIR was filed against him for holding a rally without taking prior permission.The FIR was filed by the Delhi Police under the direction of the Election Commission for Gambhir violating the Moral code of Conduct of the elections. The election rally was held in Jungpura on April 25, Thursday, according to reports.Gambhir is one of the newest members of the Bharatiya Janata Party and will be contesting from the East Delhi constituency. He was inducted into the party in March in the presence of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.Aitishi, Gambhir’s rival in the East Delhi constituency, called Gambhir out on Twitter after the FIR was filed against him. She tweeted, “First, Discrepancies in nomination papers. Then, Criminal offence of having 2 voter IDs. Now, FIR for illegal rally. My question to @GautamGambhir: When you don’t know the rules, why play the game? (sic).” However, this is not the only controversy which has followed the former cricketer. Atishi had earlier filed a criminal complaint against him for holding two voter ID cards for two separate constituencies, which is illegal. She filed the complaint at the Tis Hazara court in Delhi. She alleged that Gambhir had the voter’s ID cards for Karol Bagh and Rajinder Nagar.Possessing two voter ID cards is in direct violation of the Representation of the People Act (RPA) and if Gambhir is found guilty, he will face one year jail time. His hearing will take place on May 1.Earlier this week, both the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party had called for the disqualification of Gambhir over an alleged problem in his nomination papers. However, their claims were rubbished by the polling officer who said that there is “substantial compliance” in his papers and his nomination will be accepted, reports NDTV.Gambhir’s nomination exposed the fact that he is the richest candidate to be fielded in Delhi with Rs 147 crore worth of movable and immovable assets.
What to know about Trumps controversial H-1B visa plan Close The bill, however, is yet to be passed by the Senate, where the Republicans have a majority. VisaEuropean UnionThe US lawmakers on Wednesday passed a bill that would benefit almost 300,000 Indians living in the US. The bill is aimed at lifting the present 7 percent country-cap on issuing Green Cards, a move that would help thousands of high-skilled Indian IT Professionals.People who hold a green card can live permanently and take up employment in the US. The latest bill, if signed into law, would reduce the waiting time for talented professionals from India and other countries who have applied for permanent residency in the States. Indian passportReutersIndian IT professionals who are in the US on the H-1B work visas are the most affected by the current immigration system which imposes a 7 percent country-cap on the allotment of Green Cards. Lifting the per-country quota would be beneficial for the Indian IT professionals who have been waiting for the permanent legal residency for more than a decade. Under the current norms set by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, only 7 percent of the visas will be issued to natives of any one independent country in a fiscal year.However, according to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), the new bill would eliminate the 7 percent country cap for employment-based immigrant visas and also remove an offset that reduced the number of visas from people from China.
