Man U ready to hijack Lukaku’s Sh13.4bn move to Chelsea

first_img0Shares0000United manager Jose Mourinho has a word in Lukaku’s ear when managing Chelsea in 2015.PHOTO/Daily MailLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 6 – In a sensational development, Sportsmail understands Jose Mourinho is closing in on the biggest move of the summer and a world-record deal, eclipsing Paul Pogba’s Sh11.9bn (£89m) return to Old Trafford last year.Everton striker Lukaku, who scored 26 goals last season, was expected to go back to Stamford Bridge but relations between the two clubs have soured since Chelsea’s failed move to sign John Stones in 2015. Mourinho was the Chelsea manager who sold Lukaku to Goodison Park three years ago but is keen to work again with the Belgian striker.READ: Manchester United are ready to hijack Romelu Lukaku’s £100million move to ChelseaEverton striker Romelu Lukaku celebrates after scoring the opening goal against Manchester City at Goodison Park in Liverpool on January 15, 2017As Lukaku heads towards Old Trafford, Everton are hopeful of thrashing out a deal to bring Wayne Rooney back to Goodison from United but the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement.Rooney has moved closer to a return to Merseyside 13 years after leaving for Old Trafford in a £27m transfer after Everton stepped up their interest.There is a willingness on behalf of Everton, United and the Rooney camp to strike a deal, but it is understood that all three sides will have to compromise.A number of options are being discussed, including United paying up the remaining two years of Rooney’s contract and allowing him to leave on a free transfer, and a season-long loan which would see the two clubs share his Sh30.8m (£230,000)-a-week wages.Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford met Bill Kenwright at the Everton chairman’s London offices on Wednesday and further talks are planned in the coming days.Everton have always been Rooney’s preference ahead of a move to China or America, and he confirmed after United’s win in the Europa League final in May that they were the only club he would play for after leaving Old Trafford.Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is among the stars rumoured to be considering big-money moves to the Chinese Super LeagueBut until now the finances have proved a significant stumbling block with Everton only prepared to pay a fee of £10m and wages of £150,000 a week for a 31-year-old player whose stock has fallen significantly in the last 12 months.They had a loan bid rejected in January but talks have been revived this week after Rooney decided to stay in England following a family holiday in Mykonos mulling over his future.Everton’s major shareholder Farhad Moshiri and Kenwright see the commercial value in bringing Rooney back to his spiritual home. They also hope he can resurrect his flagging career.Rooney was again seen at a spin class in Liverpool on Wednesday as he tries to build up his fitness before United’s players are due to report for pre-season on Saturday. It remains to be seen if he will fly to California on tour with the rest of Mourinho’s squad 24 hours later.Re-signing Rooney would be another statement of intent by Everton in a summer that has seen then spend £90m on goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, defender Michael Keane, midfielder Davy Klaassen, and forward Sandro Ramirez.Their also want Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson and have an interest in Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.Meanwhile, United are considering a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl. They are determined to add a holding midfielder to their squad, with Tottenham’s Eric Dier and Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic still the preferred options.-By Daily Mail–0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Why €45m wonderkid was key to Solari getting the Real Madrid job

first_img BEST OF Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT SORRY But equally important is an 18-year-old from Brazil who has only played 29 minutes in La Liga, and on whose shoulders rest a huge amount of expectations. In a season in which big players have invariably flattered to deceive, Vinícius Júnior’s promise – and the capacity to turn that into full Real Madrid-grade elite level productivity – has played a significant part in defining the outcome of the search for a coach in the Spanish capital.It has been an unusual few months for Madrid to say the least, not only on the pitch, but also as far back as the summer and their business (or lack thereof). The superstar who had propelled the club to four European Cups in four years – as well as countless merchandise and ticket sales – departed, but there was no replacement of a similar level brought in. Instead, in a sign of the shake-up at the top of La Liga, it was Atlético who made the superstar signing, paying Monaco €70m for soon-to-be world champion Thomas Lemar, the most expensive outlay by any club in Spain. Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Rather than making a galáctico splash to try and soothe the sting of Cristiano’s exit, Florentino Perez’s biggest transaction was €45m for a kid many people hadn’t heard of. Someone who had never played in Europe, and wasn’t even close to breaking into the senior Brazil team. An investment in the future, but also one Los Blancos need to start paying off sooner rather than later. After all, this was another transfer window in which they failed again to get Neymar, and as Football Leaks has shown, also failed to get Kylian Mbappé. Big bets have been hedged on Vinícius turning out to be just as captivating a star. Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos RANKED LATEST The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 The first coach tasked with converting that all-important prospect into the finished article didn’t want to play ball. Julen Lopetegui’s calls for patience with the youngster were welcomed at the start of the season, yet as results started to turn poorly, that perspective was suddenly lost, the wunderkind painted as the solution to all of Madrid’s troubles.Vinícius became an easy stick with which to beat the embattled coach, and with every passing game in which the winger was either told to go and play with the B team and pay his dues, or left out of the matchday squad, the fury built more still. El Clásico was the culmination. When the signing was left out of the matchday squad despite travelling to Barcelona with the seniors ahead of the game, the people upstairs at the Bernabéu weren’t impressed. To say the least.They were less impressed still with the 5-1 defeat, and in a flash, Lopetegui was gone. In his place stands the man Madrid hopes can do a better job with their important investment, and it should be noted that Santiago Solari has played his cards intelligently. In his first game as Madrid interim boss, he handed the Brazilian a starting spot. In his second, his Champions League debut. The hat-trick of presidential pleasing was hammered home on the third occasion, when the young prospect was brought on to turn the tide against a superior Valladolid side, breaking the deadlock thanks to a deflected shot with seven minutes left on the clock. Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Santiago Solari was previously in charge of the Real Madrid B team Four wins out of four, 15 goals scored, two conceded, and a leap from ninth to sixth place in the table – now only four points behind FC Barcelona.The numbers provide plenty of evidence to explain why Santiago Solari has been trusted with the full-time Real Madrid coaching job (even if the lack of alternatives available also helped). scrap Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City Most Read In Footballcenter_img Vinicius Junior is unveiled as Real Madrid player by Florentino Perez gameday cracker Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Did Mahrez just accidentally reveal Fernandinho is leaving Man City this summer? 3 Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade whoops Vinicius Junior is fast becoming a star for Real Madrid revealed 3 Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion latest 3 tense “Solari has been very intelligent. He knew how to produce what the team needed, and above all what the club was looking for,” an unnamed Madrid director told Marca on Tuesday. The last part of the quote is not insignificant. It could be the most significant.Solari coached Vinícius hands-on, every day for three months as his boss at Castilla, so perhaps he simply saw what Lopetegui couldn’t, that the signing really is close to the finished article. Or perhaps he’s just being savvy and pleasing the right people – a quality not to be underestimated at a club like Real Madrid, as Lopetegui found out. Either way, expect the focus on the Perez’s new hope, his development, and how the newly crowned coach handles it to be a continued theme throughout the season.last_img read more

Graca Machel launches Mandela Day at community-built township school

first_img“We should reach out to each other.” This was the message Graca Machel, global activist and widow of South African statesman and international icon Nelson Mandela, brought to the launch of this year’s Mandela Day at the Dr Mathole Motshekga Primary School in Tembisa, a large township east of Johannesburg. Machel said to the gathered students and dignitaries that, as her late husband believed, every single human being deserves a life of dignity.Mandela Day is held annually on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. This year the focus will be on education and literacy, food security, shelter and the environment. The Nelson Mandela Foundation is urging South Africans and international supporters to help establish food gardens, read to children, paint schools and support recycling initiatives run by young people.Graca Machel addresses schoolchildren at Dr Mathole Motshekga Primary School in Tembisa, urging them to do their best in their schoolwork.Nelson Mandela Day is a global event, officially declared by the UN in November 2009. On this day, the UN and the Nelson Mandela Foundation call on people across the world to devote 67 minutes of their time to helping others. This is seen as a way to celebrate the spirit of South Africa’s great humanitarian.A 2009 United Nations press statement explains: “For 67 years Nelson Mandela devoted his life to the service of humanity – as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa.”Machel said Mandela Day was a reminder of our duty to improve the lives of those less fortunate than us. “There is no end in doing better. We have to do it again and again.”She said while we can all do good individually, doing good in a movement, with others, had a bigger impact. “We, together, have the responsibility of making the country a better place to live.”The spirit of active citizenshipAs part of its mandate to build pride, patriotism and a spirit of active citizenship, Brand South Africa is a key partner of Mandela Day, supporting it with the Play Your Part programme. The initiative recognises the power of young people to spur the country’s social and economic development. Play your Part celebrates South Africa’s spirit of Ubuntu and commitment to human development, as outlined in the National Development Plan.“Mandela Day is an initiative dedicated to giving back to those less fortunate, the vulnerable and marginalised in our society,” Kingsley Makhubela, chief executive officer of Brand South Africa, said in a press release. “In fact, Mandela Day actively encourages service to others, just as Madiba himself gave many years of his life in service to humanity.”Mandela’s nickname “Madiba” is his clan name, as the Nelson Mandela Foundation explains. A clan name is more important than a surname, as it refers to an ancestor. The original Madiba was a Thembu chief who ruled in the Transkei, today part of South Africa’s Eastern Cape province, in the 18th century.“The nation and the world remembers the profound and lasting impressions of Madiba, who is recognised and celebrated as an icon for racial equality and freedom,” Makhubela said. “South Africans are encouraged to play their part towards positive change by building their communities and upholding a spirit of Ubuntu and social cohesion.”A school built by a communityAccording to Sello Hatang, chief executive officer of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Dr Mathole Motshekga Primary School was chosen for the launch because the communitythere built it themselves. “They saw a need. They didn’t wait for somebody else to do something,” he said. Locals, he added, even contributed to teachers’ salaries.Hatang said Mandela Day should inspire change every day, not only during the 67 minutes on 18 July. “We want to say to the community of the school: ‘You began the process. Don’t stop!’”Volunteers at the launch sort books donated to primary school’s library, while others put up bookshelves and spruce it up with a coat of paint.The school, attended by 1 601 children, is named after Mathole Motshekga, a South African politician, lawyer and former premier of Gauteng province.Principal Tabitha Kulima said that in celebration of Mandela Day volunteers will tile and paint classrooms, renovate the library, extend the school’s food garden and plant trees. These improvement will be complete by 18 July. At the launch, the school was also given a donation of food and books.Being positive, giving hopeAlso helping out at the launch were actors from the South African soap opera Isidingo: The Need, and representatives from private companies Tiger Brands and Procter & Gamble, and the NGOs Food and Trees for Africa, and Stop Hunger Now.Izak Davel, who plays the character Bradley in Isidingo, said he was happy the focus of the launch was on children. “There is so much negativity going on in this country. We as adults are moaning most of the time. How can we expect the children to be positive about things?”Davel was also glad the volunteers at the launch were leading by example. “In life, many of us are caught up in working to survive, to provide for our children. We forget sometimes that there are other people who need love and other necessities.”He said he played his part by showing love every day, with little acts of kindness like helping an old person cross a street.From left, Brand South Africa’s Keneiloe Phakathi and Tshepiso Malele, Isidingo actors Robert Mpisi and Robert Whitehead, school principal Tabitha Kulima, and actors Izak Davel, Sophie Ndaba and Lindani Nkosi.Lindani Nkosi, Isidingo‘s Lincoln Sibeko, said Mandela Day should encourage us all to discuss the importance of reconciliation, hope and unity. “A day like this gives hope to the children. It gives them hope in seeking help in various areas. Our participation strengthens the sense of hope.“It shows them that there is someone taking care of them and that things are happening for them. Hope would be the driving thing for me this Mandela Day.”Source: SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Amazon to open Johannesburg cloud technology hub

first_img17 August 2015Amazon will open its new Johannesburg office during 2015/16, recruiting over 250 local engineers, network specialists, media specialists and other technology staff to service the growing number of Amazon Web Services (AWS) clients in South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world.The service provides cloud technology and storage offerings to businesses, including web start-ups, SMMEs and governments. The first Amazon Web Services office in South Africa – the Amazon Cape Town Development Centre – opened in 2004, and now the increasingly popular service requires a second location to manage business demand.“Amazon has been an active contributor to the South African technology community for over a decade,” said Steve Midgley, head of Amazon Web Services for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and now, with the new expansion and creation of jobs, the company intends to further accelerate the growth of cloud customers in Africa and around the globe. “Over (ten years) we have seen some key technologies of the AWS cloud emerge from the country, so it is no surprise we are also seeing strong growth amongst African organisations moving to the cloud. Choosing to locate an office in South Africa speaks to the rapidly growing customer base, the broad set of talent here and the investment we are making to support cloud adoption around the world,” Midgley said.The Amazon Cape Town Development Centre was established to facilitate the operations of the company’s Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) service, and while that office will continue drive the service, the Johannesburg office will focus more on developing new products for the cloud service, designed specifically for Africa and regions outside of Europe and the United States.South African companies using Amazon Web Services include Standard Bank, MTN and Travelstart.Travelstart, one of Africa’s largest online travel booking websites, operates in more than 15 countries in Africa and the Middle East. Anders Back, Travelstart Chief Technology Officer welcomes the Amazon expansion, saying “thanks to the pay-as- you-go nature of AWS, we have been able to grow our Middle Eastern websites in leaps and bounds while reducing operating costs.” Without active support structure on the ground for cloud storage technology, says Back, would be unachievable for South African companies looking for international expansion.Amazon are currently accepting relevant employment applications for the new Johannesburg site through their corporate website.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Delay sought for reporting farm air emissions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With a Nov. 15 deadline looming, the National Pork Producers Council and the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association today filed a brief in support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s motion to delay a mandate that farmers report certain air emissions from manure on their farms.In April, a federal court, ruling on a lawsuit brought by environmental activist groups against EPA, rejected an exemption for farms from reporting “hazardous” emissions under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Emergency Planning Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA). CERCLA mainly is used to clean hazardous waste sites but has a federal reporting component, while EPCRA requires entities to report on the storage, use and release of hazardous substances to state and local governments, including first responders.EPA had exempted farms from CERCLA reporting, reasoning that while emissions might exceed thresholds that would trigger responses under the law such responses would be “unnecessary, impractical and unlikely.” The agency limited EPCRA reporting to large, confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), requiring them to make one-time reports. Under the decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, all livestock farms, not just CAFOs, are required to report.Between 60,000 and 100,000 livestock and poultry farmers will need to file air emissions reports with the U.S. Coast Guard National Response Center (NRC), beginning Nov. 15, as well as written reports with their regional EPA office within 30 days of reporting to the NRC.Some farmers already have tried filing reports, but the NRC system has been overwhelmed. NRC operators are refusing to accept reports for more than a single farm per call because of concern that the phone systems will be tied up for non-emergency purposes. In one instance, an NRC operator sent notices out to more than 20 state and federal response authorities, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a state policy agency, after receiving a phone call.In seeking a second delay in implementing the CERCLA reporting mandate — the original filing deadline technically was the day the federal court threw out the exemption — EPA, NPPC and the poultry and egg association are asking the court to give the agency more time to “provide farmers more specific and final guidance before they must estimate and report emissions” and to develop a system that will enable farmers to comply with their legal obligations.last_img read more

How to Create and Share Title Templates in Premiere Pro

first_imgGive your videos consistent design with title templates, a helpful tool in Premiere Pro.One little-known feature in Premiere Pro is the title template tool. This feature is not to be confused with Live Text templates in Premiere Pro, which can be used to import and manipulate After Effects sequences in Premiere. For more on Live Text templates, check out our corresponding blog post here on PremiumBeat.Instead, a title template allows you to quickly recall a title design in Premiere Pro for use on multiple projects. This can be a handy way to create design consistency on projects with multiple collaborators or projects with multiple episodes. Here’s how to create title templates in Premiere Pro.Create Title Templates in Premiere ProBefore we jump into how to create title templates, it must be noted that titles in Premiere are created for specific aspect ratios. If you open an HD title template in a 4K project, it will have severe cropping. So, if you’re going to be working on a project with varying aspect ratios, it’s best to create multiple versions — or, at the very least, create a high-res version you can scale down with the Scale to Frame size feature found under Clip > Video Options > Scale to Frame Size.Step 1: Design the TitleFirst things first, you need to design your titles. To do this, create a new title by hitting Command+T on a Mac or Control+T on a PC (or simply navigate to File > New > Title). You’ll be prompted to name your title. For the sake of this demonstration, the title name isn’t important. Just give your title an arbitrary name and click OK.Once your title editing box pops up, create a title template in whatever way you see fit for the template you are trying to create. Just keep in mind that you want your titles to tell a consistent story. Don’t go overboard. A well-designed minimal title is far more useful than an ultra-specific title that can only be used for a single project.You can use any combination of shapes and text when creating titles — as long as the person using your titles has the font installed on their computers.Step 2: Save the TemplateAfter you’ve created your title, it’s time to save the template for future use. This is really what makes this method superior to the ‘New Title Based on Current Title’ technique. Navigate to the Templates button right next to the font selection box at the top of the title editing window (or simply hit Command+J on a Mac or Control+J on a PC).If this is your first time working with title templates in Premiere Pro, the screen that pops up should be blank. Don’t worry… simply navigate to the small menu button near the top right of the pop-up and select Import Current Title as Template. You will be prompted to name your new template. Name your title template and click OK.Step 3: Create a New Title in Your Desired ProjectNow it’s time to create a new title using the title template. One of the perks of using a title template is that you don’t have to create a new template for each project as long as you’re working on the same workstation. With your desired project open, create a new title, name it, and click OK.Note: The cool thing about title templates is they transcend projects and don’t have to be copied to another collaborator’s workstation if you share the project files. For example, if you used a template to create your titles using a title template on Computer A, you can share the project on Computer B without worrying about the titles getting messed up. Step 4: Select the TemplateIn the title editor, navigate to the Templates button next to the font menu near the top of the window (or hit Command+J on a Mac or Control+J on a PC). You should now see your title template. Select the template and edit your text as you would with any other project.Using this method, you can create an unlimited number of visually consistent titles.Share Premiere Pro Text TemplatesPremiere Pro title templates save in a .prtl file format. Thankfully, Premiere Pro title templates can be easily imported into Premiere Pro applications on other computers. Here’s how it’s done.Step 1: Save Your TemplateSaving a text template is simple. After you’ve designed your text template in the title editor, select the Templates button located near the top of the window next to the font selection menu. A small window will pop up. Select Import Current Title as Template. You’ll be prompted to give your template a name. Use whatever name you find appropriate.Step 2: Find the File on Your ComputerWhen you save a template using the method listed above, it saves the template into the following structure by default:Documents > Adobe > Premiere Pro > Version # > Profile > TemplatesFind the .prtl file by navigating the file structure above (or simply search for the file name on your computer). After you find the template file, you can copy it like you would any other document to share with another computer. I typically like uploading files like this via Google Drive, but a flash drive may do the trick if you work in the same building.Step 3: Copy the TemplateUsing the same file structure listed above, place the template file into the templates folder on the computer. While you don’t necessarily have to place the file into the templates folder, it’s a best practice for staying organized.Step 4: Import the TemplateTo import the text template, go to the title editor by creating a new title (File > New > Title) or hit Command+T or Control+T on a PC. In the text editor, navigate to the Templates button located to the left of the font menu near the top of the window (or hit Command+J or Control+J). From the small pop-up window, select the menu button on the top right and select Import File as Template. The new template has now been added to your template library.How do you use text templates in your Premiere Pro workflow? Share in the comments below.last_img read more
