Leeds manager Bielsa admits spy claims

first_imgLeeds boss Marcelo Bielsa accepts he did send someone to spy on Derby County’s training but still hasn’t apologised for the scenario.Derby reported that a Leeds employee had to be removed by police around the training ground ahead of Friday night’s Championship match between the clubs.Derby manager Frank Lampard suspended training and took the players off the pitch after the ‘spy’ was discovered.Asked about the incident before facing Derby, Bielsa told Sky Sports:“It’s true it was someone from Leeds United. I am responsible for it. It doesn’t matter if this is legal or illegal, or right or wrong…Solskjaer reveals he plans to build his team around Pogba Manuel R. Medina – July 17, 2019 The Manchester United manager wants to end the speculation that the Frenchman is leaving the Red Devils.“For me, it is enough that Frank Lampard and Derby felt it was not the right thing to do, for me to believe that I didn’t behave well.“Yesterday I talked to Frank Lampard and he said I didn’t respect the rules of fair play. I have a different point of view on it, but the important thing is what Frank Lampard and Derby think.“I am the only one responsible for it, because I didn’t ask for the permission of Leeds to do it.“Without trying to find a justification, I have been using this kind of practice since the qualifiers for the World Cup with Argentina. It is not illegal, we have been doing it publicly and we talk about it in the press. For some people, it’s the wrong thing to do and for other people, it’s not the wrong thing to do.”last_img read more

In total, 280 plants were seized. The three suspects were subsequently taken into custody.30 ARRESTED, 85 DRIVERS TICKETED BY MOBILE DIVISION OFFICERS DURING 48 HOURS PERIODConsistent with the Commissioner’s Policing Priorities for 2017, Mobile Division targeted patrols intended to reduce crime, and to minimize the ability for criminals to commit criminal activities, has resulted in the arrest of thirty (30) persons during the past 48 hours for, murder, stolen vehicle, possession of dangerous drugs, stealing, and outstanding court warrants.Additionally, 85 drivers were ticketed for various traffic violations.POLICE ARE APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC TO SHARE INFORMATION ON ANY ILLEGAL/SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR INSIGNIFICANT (THE TIP) MAY SEEM, MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ARE URGED TO ANONYMOUSLY CONTACT THE POLICE AT 919 OR CRIME STOPPERS AT 328-TIPS (8477) (NEW PROVIDENCE) OR 1-242-300-8477 (FAMILY ISLANDS)CRIME PREVENTION TIP OF THE WEEK – If a crime occurs – report it!Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.last_img read more

There’s nothing to do.” So rather than get to that point, we wanted to share some fun things you can do together as a family.Family Entourage joined Good Morning San Diego to help parents create some fun family memories together and be active:• You hear all the time about how tennis and golf are life sports, so start your kids young and grab your clubs and get out on a course. We belonged to a country club growing up and it was so fun to get it out and play as a family. But gone are the days where only the members can play, the San Diego area boasts more than 90 golf courses, laid out among seaside settings, desert mountains or the inland valleys.• Cool down with a family movie-There are those days that it might just be too hot or it is raining, or you have done so many activities that you need to take a break. It can be fun to watch a movie together as a family.• Lake Life -As the summer heats up, you don’t have to go too far to enjoy water activities. Break away from the beach this summer and escape to the sunny shores of Lake San Marcos. Enjoy a leisurely ride in a kayak, or strike a pose on the stand up paddle board, water bikes to a captained luxury Bennington boat rental. You can also cast away in hopes of reeling in the catch of the day while fishing off the docks.• Whether you prefer Storm Troopers or Wizards with Wands, space travel or time travel, patriotic or the classics… the San Diego Symphony’s Bayside Summer Nights is the perfect choice for the whole family to spend and unparalleled under the stars. It’s the long-running summer concert series located on the Embarcadero Marina Park South and this summer’s lineup is top notch. patriotic Star Spangled Pops, 1812 Tchaikovsky Spectacular, two nights of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™ In Concert with John Williams’ unforgettable score performed live to the film, J.K. Rowling’s classic tale Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince™ In Concert and two special Comic-Con week concerts inside Copley Symphony Hall, Jacobs Music Center featuring the world premiere of Galaxy Quest™ In Concert and Back To The Future™© In Concert.• Go for a ride-Some of my favorite memories growing up were riding bikes with friends around the neighborhood. Whether it is exploring a new trail, cruising along the beach or learning how to ride a bike for the first time, summer time is a great time to take a family bike ride. There are over 20 mountain bike trails in San Diegocounty alone. It can be fun to pick out a new trail or spot and make a day trip out of it. For us, our boys are just at the beginning stages of learning how to ride a bike.

PenAir Looks At Expanding Flights In Homer

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Peninsula Airways, also known as PenAir, is looking at leasing space at the Homer Airport. PenAir filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, in August 2017, allowing them to restructure their business model and continue operating. On May 4, Peninsula Airways, Inc. applied for the sublease at the rate of $38,125 annually to be paid in equal monthly installments of $3,177 per month. The lease includes space for a ticket office and baggage area for the airline. The Homer City Council approved a resolution at their meeting on Tuesday, May 29, approving a 26-month sublease at the Homer Airport. PenAir intends to offer flights on its Saab 340 aircraft between Homer and Anchorage starting in September if a final lease agreement is reached. PenAir plans to release a decision mid-June on whether the company can commit to the lease agreement with the City of Homer.last_img read more

Ancient bacterial mats may have been key to first mobile animals

first_img The mats, which the researchers believe are likely similar to the type that evolved in some early lagoons during the Ediacaran Period, some 542 million years ago (the time most agree multicellular animals first began to appear) are comprised of a bottom layer of sulphide-oxidizing bacteria, which is covered by a top layer of blue green algae, which produces the oxygen through photosynthesis. They found oxygen levels of between 0.25 and 0.45 atm near the mats, compared to 0.10 at or near the surface.The findings are important because fossil evidence suggests mobile animals first evolved in early salty lagoons that should have been too salty to produce normal plant growth.Of course there is one hiccup in the theory, and that is the fact that the mats only produce oxygen during the day when the sun is shining; oxygen levels around the mats plunge at night, leaving the lagoons a very inhospitable place. However, at Los Roques, there are some insect larvae that exist inside the mats that for the most part shut down at night; hibernating, if you will, and thus can survive with almost no oxygen when it’s dark. Gingras and his team support the notion that perhaps some early life forms could have done the same, though others are not quite ready to jump on that bandwagon.Another issue is that the results are based on the notion that the mats that exist today are in fact the same as the mats that existed way back then; a bit of a leap seeing as how there is really no evidence to support such a supposition. Thus, in order for the ideas suggested in this paper to gain credence, evidence of some similarity will have to be found through further research. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

In situ fossils of the mobile forms of these animals are associated with microbial sedimentary structures1, 2, 3, and the animal’s trace fossils generally were formed parallel to the surface of the seabed, at or below the sediment–water interface4, 5. This evidence suggests the earliest mobile animals inhabited settings with high microbial populations, and may have mined microbially bound sediments for food resources6, 7, 8. Here we report the association of mobile animals—insect larvae, oligochaetes and burrowing shore crabs—with microbial mats in a modern hypersaline lagoon in Venezuela. The lagoon is characterized by low concentrations of dissolved O2 and pervasive biomats dominated by oxygen-producing cyanobacteria, both analogous to conditions during the Ediacaran. We find that, during the day, O2 levels in the biomats are four times higher than in the overlying water column. We therefore conclude that the animals harvest both food and O2 from the biomats. In doing so, the animals produce horizontal burrows similar to those found in Ediacaran-aged rocks. We suggest that early mobile animals may have evolved in similar environments during the Ediacaran, effectively exploiting oases rich in O2 that formed within low oxygen settings.

Image illustration: Nature Geoscience, doi:10.1038/ngeo1142 (PhysOrg.com) — Researchers from Canada studying the highly salty coastal lagoons at Los Roques, Venezuela and the microbial mats found at the bottom of the sea there, have discovered that oxygen levels in the mats, at least in the day time, are high enough to support the development of mobile life forms. Led by University of Alberta palaeontologist, Murray Gingras, the team writes in Nature Geoscience, that levels of oxygen on the ocean floor were up to four times as high as that near the surface; high enough to support the development of mobile sea life; which the team believes could explain how early life forms could have evolved in waters with high salt concentrations.
