The official immediately stepped away from his protests, making Mourinho turn his ire on Dean and shouting and gesturing to him that Sterling should not have remained on the field.

The result moved the North London side up to fifth in the Premier League table after Manchester United and Wolves dropped points in their stalemate at Old Trafford on Saturday. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The touchline is never a dull place when Jose Mourinho is in attendance and the Portuguese’s latest incredible reaction from the sidelines drew much attention on Sunday as his Tottenham side beat Manchester City. Raheem Sterling had already been booked for a reckless challenge on Dele Alli – a challenge which itself left Mourinho fuming after he believed the England international was lucky not to see red. Jose Mourinho gave an incredible reaction after Raheem Sterling allegedly dived But Mourinho was once again left incensed after the crazy penalty incidents at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, believing that Sterling should have received a second yellow for simulation. Ilkay Gundogan’s spot kick was saved by Hugo Lloris after Serge Aurier had brought down Sergio Aguero – a decision which came via VAR nearly two minutes after the incident. But on the rebound from Lloris’ save from Gundogan, Sterling charged towards the ball and went to ground after seemingly colliding with the Frenchman. VAR reviewed the decision and adjudged that a second penalty should not be awarded which referee Mike Dean followed, but Mourinho was left furious that Sterling had not been sent off for an alleged dive.Advertisementlast_img read more

Ball State students examine addiction

first_imgMuncie, In. — An immersive learning class from Ball State University will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the growing local addiction recovery community April 25.Students enrolled in the University’s Department of Journalism Spring Immersive Learning class “Unmasked: Recovery and Redemption” will host a Story Walk from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, April 25 at First Merchants Bank Community Room.Students will explain how they explored the growing addiction recovery community in Muncie, Delaware County and East Central Indiana, and the role churches and faith-based organizations have in helping addicts address the disease.A Story Walk combines student journalists and their sources — some with artifacts from their personal narratives — presenting the project and how stories emerged.Students found there are several 12-step meetings, support groups and faith-based programs available. In fact, they are common in this community. But there are far fewer medical-based, in-patient and outpatient treatment alternatives as government and community-based health care providers come to terms with the worst drug crisis in the nation’s history.In 2016-17, a class of Ball State students examined the use of meth in Delaware County. The result was www.stigmaunmasked.com, a website with original content that included a 30-minute, made-for-public-television documentary and a 40-page magazine.In 2019, students revisited the topic through the lens of recovery updating the website and producing a new magazine. Funded by a Ball Brothers Foundation Rapid Grant, students from the Department of Journalism examined what has changed for Muncie residents Brian and Rhea Graham, who were featured in the project’s original documentary and magazine, and the role local faith communities have in addiction recovery.In the magazine, available free at outlets across Muncie, features stories about addicts in search of recovery, and the obstacles they face, including funding for residential treatment. The Grahams, who are frequent speakers at Narcotics Anonymous meetings and often travel to regional and national NA conventions, discuss how they have stayed clean and what it meant to alter their circle of influence.Students also examine relapse as a part of recovery, and the effect drug addiction has on families and communities.last_img read more

Ramsey refuses to dwell on past

first_imgMidfielder Aaron Ramsey admits there will always be a sense of what might have been this season, but is determined to help secure a positive ending for Arsenal. Press Association The Wales international returned from three months out with a thigh injury to score in the Barclays Premier League win at Hull last weekend which capped an all-action display. Ramsey had been in sublime form over the first half of the campaign, where his 13 goals helped set the Gunners up for what looked a sustained assault on the championship. However, following the loss of Ramsey, then England duo Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere as well as club-record signing Mesut Ozil all to injury, Arsenal saw their challenge fade badly. While the 23-year-old cannot help but reflect on how different the campaign might have turned out, Ramsey remains focused on delivering a fitting finale. “Those thoughts (of what might have happened if we all had stayed fit) have gone through my mind, but disappointing things happen,” Ramsey said on Sky Sports Weekend Warm-Up. “I am obviously absolutely gutted with what went on after Christmas with my injury, but that is football and you have to bounce back from that. “We have had some bad injuries in the second half of the season, but that is something we have to overcome and hopefully we will be thereabouts in the Premier League again next season.” Arsenal will be out to cement their place in the top four ahead of Everton when they host out-of-form Newcastle on Monday night. Ramsey insists the Gunners are all focused on delivering another shot at Champions League football before they return to Wembley for the FA Cup final against Hull. “We are hungrier than ever together,” said Ramsey. “To get into the Champions League again is where we want to be, where every player wants to test themselves. “We want to finish the job off now and get back in there again next season.” Following on from their nerve-shredding penalty shoot-out win over Wigan in the FA Cup semi-finals, Arsenal have recorded back-to-back league victories to edge ahead of Everton by a point. With clashes against relegation-battlers West Brom and then Norwich ahead, defender Bacary Sagna is confident Arsene Wenger’s side can deliver again. “I hope the best is to come,” the France full-back said on Arsenal Player. “It was good to stick together because we were playing quite badly recently and had been dropping many points. “It was time to wake up and that is what we have done in recent games, when we have been fighting a bit more. “We had to show a reaction because we had been beaten many times, that was not Arsenal, now we are fighting back. “We have to win every single game to qualify for the Champions League and (lift) the FA Cup, but it will not be easy.” last_img read more

Tough pill to swallow but right call to postpone Olympics – Duffy

first_imgHAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC) – Bermudan triathlete Flora Duffy says the decision to postpone this summer’s Olympic Games for 12 months was the right call but admits it was a tough pill to swallow after battling back from injury to be fit for the showpiece.Organisers of Tokyo 2020 and the International Olympic Committee made the decision to delay the Games on Tuesday because of the coronavirus pandemic that has killed almost 20 000 people worldwide.Duffy, who was hoping to double Bermuda’s medal tally in Tokyo in July, said she will now have to significantly change her triathlon trajectory with the Games to be held no later than the summer of 2021, media here reported.The 32-year-old had intended to wind down her career after the Olympics and bow out at the ITU World Triathlon Series (WTS) grand final in Bermuda in September next year, but those plans have been adjusted to accommodate her ambitions of winning an Olympic medal.“In my little triathlon world it is a tough pill to swallow hearing the 2020 Games will be postponed until 2021,” Duffy wrote on her social media site yesterday.“Everything has been geared towards that race, I’d envisioned a very different 2021, but given the current situation in the world, it is the right call, and sport/prioritising training at the moment feels trivial. “Sending my thoughts to anyone COVID-19 positive and encouraging everyone else to stay inside and do your part to stop the spread.”Organisers faced mounting pressure to call off the Games after Australia and Canada pulled out on Monday because of the acceleration of the COVID-19 virus.The Olympics have never been delayed in their 124-year modern history, but were cancelled in 1916, 1940 and 1944 because of the two World Wars.Duffy was ruled out for eight months last season because of a career-threatening foot injury before making a superb return to competitive action, winning a fifth Xterra world title in Kapalua, Hawaii, in October last year.The two-time world champion was confident of carrying her strong form into the new campaign but now faces an uncertain year, with the opening two races on the WTS calendar, Abu Dhabi and Bermuda, both being postponed indefinitely because of the pandemic.Duffy had stitches removed from her hand last week after snapping a fifth metacarpal during swimming training this month.Heavyweight boxer Clarence Hill’s bronze at the 1976 Montreal Games is Bermuda’s only Olympic medal to date.last_img read more

Brazil president’s decree changes media, sponsorship rules

first_img(REUTERS) – Brazilian soccer clubs are free to negotiate broadcast rights for own home games without requiring a green light from their opponents, according to a new decree issued by the country’s president on Thursday.The law had previously only allowed transmission of games when both teams were in agreement. Matches at neutral venues will still need an accord between both sides.The decree issued by far-right President Jair Bolsonaro also knocks down a 1998 law banning media companies from advertising on team uniforms and clears the way for new shirt sponsorship deals.It allows clubs to sign players on 30-day contracts, down from the previous minimum of 90 days. Players will also automatically get 5% of the revenue from TV deals.The decision comes a day after Bolsonaro, a keen soccer fan, appeared with a Flamengo badge on his suit and the same day Flamengo restart the Rio de Janeiro state championship after a three-month hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Hours before the game was due to kick off Flamengo had not reached an agreement with their opponents Bangu over whether the match was to be televised.The restart – the first of the traditionally important state leagues to begin playing again – has been criticised by players and clubs, some of whom think Brazil is not ready.Brazil has had more deaths from COVID-19 than any other nation except the United States, with 1,269 reported on Wednesday, taking the overall death toll to 46,510.last_img read more

Like it or not, respect OSU

first_imgTrash-talking Memphis center Joey Dorsey’s big mouth was left gaping after his unfulfilled promise.Dorsey — whose name and build seems more fitting of a professional heavyweight boxer than a basketball player — guaranteed he’d pull down 20 rebounds in his Elite Eight matchup against Ohio State big man Greg Oden. He went on to say that the freshman phenom was overrated, soft and needed an offensive game worth playing.The generally expressionless Oden let his performance in Saturday’s game do the talking, finishing one of his best collegiate games with 17 points, nine rebounds and great interior defense in the Buckeyes’ 92-76 win. Dorsey, on the other hand, looked more like Hawley Griffin from “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” — invisible. He finished with a goose egg and a handful of boards.Much to the chagrin of Wisconsin fans, Ohio State has, behind its poster child, danced all the way to Atlanta. But I get the feeling there will be a new excuse as to why they made it. Truth be told, Dorsey isn’t the only one who has said Oden and the Buckeyes are overrated.During the middle part of the season, UW fans griped about OSU. They argued that the only top teams Ohio State played — North Carolina, Florida and Wisconsin — all resulted in losses. Against teams like Northwestern, Penn State and Michigan State, close wins left fans thinking Ohio State wasn’t all it was hyped up to be. But every time the Buckeyes have faced adversity that escalated beyond the reach of even Oden, they overcame, they persevered, and the bottom line is they won.As the season progressed and Wisconsin earned the No. 1 ranking, fans thought, “Hah. Told you so. Told you we were better.” When OSU still proved its worth by defeating UW on a last-second runner, it was what Wisconsin didn’t do, not what Ohio State did to pick up the victory. Kammron Taylor missed the front end of a one-and-one with under a minute remaining on the clock.While Taylor’s miss certainly didn’t fare well for Wisconsin’s chances, Ohio State still had to make a shot. It did. And to remove any doubt, in the Big Ten Championship game the Buckeyes smoked the Badgers by 17 points.But this time it was about conceding victory and a No. 2 seed. UW gave up, that’s all. And there was lingering skepticism about the talent level of Oden. Forget about his defense, Oden’s perceived timid play on the offensive end led many to label him a 7-foot gentle giant, nothing more.The first few rounds of the NCAA tournament confirmed this notion, as Oden, who was marred by foul trouble, didn’t play particularly well. As great teams do when their stars go down or can’t perform, other players stepped up. OSU didn’t miss a beat.Yes, the Buckeyes received a blessing from the officials against Xavier when Oden’s hard shove under the basket wasn’t whistled an intentional foul. But top teams take what they’re given and still find a way to pull through at all costs. Ron Lewis still had to drain a 3-pointer to send the second round game into overtime. He did and from there the Buckeyes dodged a knockout blow and prevailed 79-71.The next game against a pesky Tennessee team, Ohio State fell behind by 20 in the first half and trailed by 17 entering the break. Despite the lopsided scoreboard, the Buckeyes remained poised and fought out an 85-84 win.After steamrolling the punchless Memphis Tigers, Ohio State is on a 21-game winning streak, and finds themselves in the Final Four for the first time since 1999.Like a little sibling following your every move, or midterm week right before spring break, Ohio State is the bane of Wisconsin fans’ existence. While you certainly don’t have to root for them — or like Oden — unless you have the Buckeyes in the upper echelon of your bracket, at least understand that they simply get it done. They’re the real deal. And they are still playing.Kevin is a junior double-majoring in economics and journalism.
