East Union freshman coach Mike Kuhnlenz urged his team to celebrate their 3-1 start to the season last Friday after beating Atwater 54-7 at Dino Cunial Field.

He also reminded them of what was to come.

This week the real fun begins for the seven Manteca region teams in four different leagues. East Union kicks off the rugged Valley Oak League schedule this Friday in Oakdale. Kuhnlenz enjoys the progress the Lancers have made in adapting to new offensive and defensive patterns and is delighted to be sitting on a winning record, but…

“FLIGHT is FLIGHT,” Kuhnlenz said on Friday, anticipating a FLIGHT calendar featuring four teams with perfect records and wins over quality opposition. Reigning tri-champions Manteca (4-0), Central Catholic (3-0) and Oakdale (3-0) are the top favorites again, but Kimball (3-0) continues to impress under the new Coach LaTef Grim and third year quarterback. Nicolas Coronado. All four are in the top 10 teams in the Sac-Joaquin section, according to the MaxPreps computer ranking – Central Catholic is at No.5, Manteca at 6, Kimball at 8 and Oakdale at 10.

Manteca opens at Sierra (0-4), Kimball hosts Weston Ranch (1-3) and Central Catholic takes power from the Bay Area Bellarmine Prep at San Jose City College on his leave of the league.

There is also a three-way title defense in the Trans-Valley League, home of two 2019 state champions. Ripon (2-2), the California Interscholastic Federation Division IV-AA titlist, starts at Modesto Christian (0 -2). Meanwhile, Division IV-A champion Escalon is tested by Hughson (4-0) at the gate while suffering a superb one-sided loss to Kimball. Upstart Livingston (3-1) has the opportunity to prove it for real to Hilmar (4-0), who was part of the TVL title division with Ripon and Escalon two years ago.

Riverbank (0-2), led by former Manteca pupil and former Lathrop coach Joe Pirillo, fills his initially scheduled week 4 leave with a game against Ripon Christian (2-1). More on that later.

Lathrop and Ripon Christian are both coming out of their weeks off. The latter is the reigning two-time champion of the Southern Athletic League. Knights league opener Denair (0-2) has had to back down due to COVID-19 protocols. Waterford (3-0) and Orestimba (2-1) appear to be the main threats to the RC throne.

In the Western Athletic Conference, 3-0 Grace Davis became the overwhelming favorite after three resounding victories. Many 2019 contenders, including champion Beyer (0-3), Johansen (1-3) and Los Banos (0-3), are in the process of rebuilding themselves. This opened the door for Lathrop and Ceres, two 2-1 teams who face each other this Friday.

Here’s a look at the Week 4 games for teams in the region:

Manteca in Sierra: The 27th meeting between these intra-city rivals will take place on the evening of Sierra’s return.

The winless Timberwolves will be hoping to build on their promising second-half effort at Stagg. They ultimately missed 49-35 but scored 21 points in the fourth quarter as runner-up Anthony Grady exploded for 270 yards and three touchdowns in 28 carries. Sierra has been limited to just eight points in the previous three competitions.

Meanwhile, the Buffaloes own the only perfect record in the Manteca region. They average 45 points per game while holding four traditionally powerful spread offenses at 21.25. They recorded a Route 44-36 victory over Turlock last week when they weren’t at full power.

Manteca has won eight straight wins against the Timberwolves and leads the series all-time, 20-6.

Union East in Oakdale: The Lancers closed the gap in what has been a lopsided series with Oakdale, but is this the year they finally recover from the bump?

East Union has lost 27 straight games to the VOL heavyweight after its 35-27 loss to the Mustangs in the spring. Much has changed since then, as the Lancers’ coaching staff underwent a complete overhaul with the hiring of Mike Kuhnlenz. His spread attack improved every week with talented QB Luke Weaver at the epicenter.

Oakdale versus with his Wing-T led by third-year quarterback Jackson Holt, a three-star prospect, according to 247sports. The Mustangs waxed Archbishop Mitty 56-13 at The Corral last week. Mitty, a renowned parish school in San Jose, is part of the highly competitive West Catholic Athletic League. Yahir Ayala burned the Monarchs for six hits.

Oakdale celebrates homecoming on Friday.

Weston Ranch in Kimball: The Ranch have let some winnable games slip through their fingers in the fourth quarter for the past two weeks. It only gets harder from here, starting with an explosive Kimball team that just wiped out state champion Escalon, 54-14.

Coronado wowed the Jaguars, completing 33 of 41 passes for a whopping 516 yards and five touchdowns. He’s the section’s top passer – the EU Weaver is No.2, according to MaxPreps – with 1,222 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Many of Coronado’s best targets of the spring are also back, including seniors Mason Rivera (24 receptions, 444 yards, five touchdowns) and Willie Clifton (18-429-5). Kimball looks set to make the SJS playoffs for the second time in the school’s short history.

Ceres in Lathrop: This is the biggest clash of the WAC opening week, which could have implications for the championship in the future.

Ceres may have their best team since 2004 when the Bulldogs last made the playoffs. Lathrop has only made the playoffs once (2015) in his 12-year college life.

Ceres has a balanced offense led by junior sophomores Landyn Hudson (337 passing yards, five touchdowns) and Tarrell Lee-Gill (359 rushing yards, seven touchdowns). The Bulldogs also have two 6-foot-3 receivers in senior Verlis Smith (229 yards, four TDs) and LeBron Stallworth (89 yards, TD). They had resounding victories over the hapless West and Johansen, and their loss came to local rival Central Valley, 20-18.

Lathrop is 0-2 against Ceres so far. The Spartans are well rested after their week off which followed back-to-back wins over Mt. Diablo and rival Weston Ranch.

Ripon at Modesto Christian: The Indians began to regain some of their championship bluster from 2019 and just in time for the TVL game. They’ve had compelling wins over Center and Calaveras over the past two weeks after losing five in a row going back to the shortened spring season.

There is an opportunity for Ripon to continue his momentum against the reconstruction of Modesto Christian (0-2). The Crusaders had two games called off in successive weeks and were shut out by Delta 40-0 on the other side of that extended break.

Friday’s game at Roy Blakeley Field features two massive receivers who double as defensive linemen. At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, Everett Hunter plays for Modesto Christian, while Ripon has 6-7, 230 pounds Bronson Burrow – he transferred from MC after his freshman year. The Crusaders have another electric weapon in 6-3 Elmo Warston, their main rusher and a threat of pass capture.

Ripon Christian at Riverbank: These programs come together because of the cancellations of their opponents. This is already the second time this season that Ripon Christian has to look for a new opponent in the middle of the week.

The Knights are former TVL members who haven’t played at Riverbank since 2009. They have a historic 3-1 advantage over Riverbank. Finding a replacement was crucial for Ripon Christian as he aims to stay alert for important SAL games ahead. Orestimba is visiting next week.

For the Bruins, this is their last tune-up for the rigors of TVL. Their last victory came on August 24, 2018, 14-3 against Delta, and they have lost 24 in a row since.

Alex Nisperos is the workhorse of Riverbank’s heavy attack. He’s also the Bruins’ best defensive player as a solid security.

New York (AFP)

Stefanos Tsitsipas took another long bathroom break, then credited him with qualifying for the third round of the US Open on Wednesday as a storm hitting New York City forced an indoor match to be suspended .

The 23-year-old Greek third seed was booed after taking more than eight minutes between the third and fourth sets, but dominated after his long trip to the bathroom to flush the toilet of Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 6-0 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

“I think take a break and go change – I was completely wet – I was refreshed,” Tsitsipas said when asked what the key was to sweeping the last set in 30 minutes.

“I was much more capable of delivering good tennis in the fourth set. I was able to stay resistant on every point.”

Tsitsipas, who tied his deepest run at the US Open, was ridiculed by Andy Murray and Alexander Zverev for extended bathroom breaks considered a game.

French Open finalist Tsitsipas, who says he is just following ATP rules which have no time limit for bathroom breaks, shot career-high 27 aces, five more than his previous best, winning his 50th game of the year, the best ATP.

“I felt very loose on my serve,” Tsitsipas said. “My pitch was very consistent. It helped me find a place and score points on my serve.”

High winds and water flooded the pitch and wind blown rain entered through openings in the upper corners under the closed roof of Louis Armstrong Stadium to suspend a second round match between South African Kevin Anderson and the Argentinian Diego Schwartzmann.

The remnants of the deadly Hurricane Ida would close the cover court after interrupting the game twice, with the National Weather Service issuing tornado and flash flood warnings for the area.

Anderson and Schwartzman took over from Ashe after Tsitsipas’ victory.

– Kick for Osaka –

Defending champion Naomi Osaka moved forward by forfeit while Russia’s second seed Daniil Medvedev advanced to the third round against Germany’s Dominik Koepfer 6-4, 6-1, 6-2.

Osaka reached the third round when 20-year-old Serbian qualifier Olga Danilovic retired due to illness.

“I haven’t been feeling well the past few days with a viral illness unrelated to covid,” Danilovic said on social media.

Osaka, in search of her fifth Grand Slam title and her third US Open crown in four years, will then face 73rd Canadian Leylah Fernandez.

The 23-year-old Japanese third seed could become the first repeat winner of the US Open as Serena Williams, missing with a hamstring tear, earned her third consecutive spot in 2014.

Sloane Stephens, the 2017 US Open winner who could meet Osaka in the fourth round, defeated 21st seed Coco Gauff 6-4, 6-2 in an all-American showdown.

“I’m really happy with the way I played,” Stephens said.

Medvedev, who won last month in Toronto, also beat Koepfer en route to the 2019 US Open final, which he lost to Rafael Nadal.

“Excellent level on my part,” said Medvedev. “There were a few tight moments in the game and I managed to play them well. I’m happy to be done in under two hours.”

Russian fifth seed Andrey Rublev defeated Spaniard Pedro Martinez 7-6 (7/2), 6-7 (5/7), 6-1, 6-1. He then faces the American Frances Tiafoe, 50th, who warns: “I’m chasing him”.

– Muguruza, Azarenka wins –

Two-time Grand Slam winners Victoria Azarenka and Garbine Muguruza booked a third round showdown.

Spain’s ninth seed Muguruza, winner of Roland Garros 2016 and winner of Wimbledon 2017, defeated Andrea Petkovic 6-4, 6-2, earning her first victory in four tries against the German.

She will then face Azarenka, two-time Australian Open champion and three-time US Open finalist, the 18th seed from Belarus who beat Italy’s Jasmine Paolini 6-3, 7-6 (7/1).

“The next round is going to be exciting for both of us,” said Azarenka.

Azarenka and Muguruza have shared four career dates.

“It will be a very difficult game. She is still playing very well here,” Muguruza said. “She’s one of the best players there.”

Romania’s 12th seed Simona Halep, 2018 Roland Garros champion and 2019 Wimbledon champion, eliminated Slovakian Kristina Kucova 6-3, 6-1. After an injury-ridden season, this is Halep’s deepest run at the US Open since 2016.

“I feel better. I am more confident,” Halep said. “Before the tournament I was a little worried about injuries.”

BRIDGEVIEW, Illinois – The Chicago Red Stars beat Kansas City NWSL 3-0 on Saturday behind two goals from Sarah Woldmoe and another from Katie Johnson.

The two teams played tied in the first half in terms of offensive opportunities, with Chicago trading seven shots for Kansas City’s five. Chicago’s initial pace was a rambling game with strong ball possession with unconnected passes, as Kansas City attempted to transition when the opportunity presented itself, although the visitors were unable to shoot. the best of their three attempts on target in the first half.

The hot, heavy match led to a half-hour hydration break. As Chicago came out of the break, defenseman Casey Krueger’s shot attempt forced Kansas City goalie Adriana Franch to a save, and the team reset for a corner kick.

The decisive goal came for Chicago from a free kick in the 36th minute, with midfielder Woldmoe connecting on a header into the box.

Chicago remained active in the attack after the opening goal, winning more corners and closing the half with more shot attempts as the two teams even managed their duels with 28.

Second half position

Kansas City made several adjustments to start the second half, bringing in Mallory Weber, Gabby Vincent and Hallie Mace for Katie Bowen, Desiree Scott and Kristen Hamilton. The change in personnel didn’t have an impact on things initially as Chicago continued their attack, with a 46th-minute first chance from Kealia Watt coming right past the goal.

Kansas City attempted to play in midfield in an attempt to mingle with the game, but failed to break through Chicago’s defense before making an extra sub just before the hour mark, passing Chile Logarzo through. for Addie McCain.

The move was unsuccessful as the Red Stars extended their lead just past the hour mark, taking advantage of another free-kick opportunity, as Woldmoe scored on goal again.

Johnson put the game on ice with a third goal for Chicago in the 81st minute after a Watt cross found the Mexico international for a header into the box. Chicago’s victory comes after a three-game winless skid and was their first multi-goal game since August 1.

Anticipation

KALAMAZOO, MI – The town of Kalamazoo must return to the drawing board on its plan to give Graphic Packaging International a tax break while working to reduce the odor associated with the plant that has plagued its residential neighbors, according to a city official.

After hearing citizen complaints about odors from Graphic Packaging International, the Kalamazoo City Commission approved tax breaks for an expansion of the recycling giant and paper production in September. But city leaders made the benefit dependent on measured progress in reducing odors at the plant.

Now, the state of Michigan has said the city’s idea of ​​giving conditional tax relief won’t work, according to a report to the city’s commission.

Kalamazoo City’s Community Investment Director Antonio Mitchell said the state has informed the city that it will not allow conditional tax relief approvals and that this matter will need to be referred to the commission of the city ​​for action. Mitchell raised the issue at the August 2 committee meeting.

City spokesman Ryan Bridges did not immediately provide state documentation at MLive’s request.

On September 2, 2020, the Kalamazoo Town Commission approved an application by Graphic Packaging International for a PA 198 Industrial Facilities Tax Exemption Certificate for real estate valued at $ 191 million.

At the September meeting before giving the approval, Kalamazoo commissioner Jack Urban proposed to amend the resolution to approve GPI’s tax break for six years, with the approval being extended subject to compliance. the city’s commitment to install four odor control units and one complete odor. mitigation works in underground pipelines.

Mayor David Anderson said at the September meeting that he asked the city attorney to draft an amendment to the resolution to incorporate certain environmental criteria for the tax abatement, according to the meeting minutes, and City Attorney Clyde Robinson shared the language at the meeting.

The change in September amended the resolution to provide an additional exemption period upon sufficient proof of compliance with the local agreement by Graphic Packaging, including the installation of odor monitoring sensors by Graphic Packaging, compliance with regulations state and federal and good faith working with the city’s odor task force to implement corrective action if necessary, the minutes said.

Additionally, the city manager has been tasked with providing quarterly reports to the city commission on the progress of odor remediation efforts by Graphic Packaging and the city’s wastewater collection facility.

The city of Kalamazoo has approved an industrial facility exemption request for Graphic Packaging International for one year, beginning December 31, 2020 and expiring December 30, 2021, according to Ron Leix, deputy head of public information at the Treasury Department of the United States. Michigan.

The City of Kalamazoo resolution states that the exemption would be extended for additional periods of two years (starting December 31, 2021 and expiring December 30, 2023), three years (starting December 31, 2023 and expiring December 30, 2026) and six years (beginning December 31, 2026 and expiring December 30, 2032), upon sufficient proof of compliance with an agreement by Graphic Packaging, including the installation of odor monitoring sensors by the company.

The agreement states that GPI will work in good faith with the city’s odor task force to implement corrective actions if necessary, and the city manager has further been tasked with providing quarterly reports to the city commission on advancing odor decontamination efforts by Graphic Packaging and the city’s wastewater treatment facility.

For the certificate expiration to be extended up to 12 years, the applicant should follow the stipulations included in the approval resolution and request the extension.

The city would then be required to approve or deny the request by resolution, Leix said.

At this time, the State Tax Commission has not received any extension requests and cannot take any action until we receive an amendment request requesting an extension, Leix said.

MLive released a survey on August 16, 2021, which shows the state of Michigan is part of an asthma prevalence survey in the neighborhood near the GPI plant and wastewater treatment facility. from the city. A family living in the Northside neighborhood of Kalamazoo has experienced severe cases of asthma, including a fatal case that claimed the life of a 17-year-old who suffered from asthma her entire life.

State and federal authorities are addressing health issues related to the problem and the region.

Toxicologists from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services met with epidemiologists from the Chronic Disease Epidemiology Section of the MDHHS in March 2021 to discuss the possibility of performing an assessment of the prevalence of asthma and hospitalizations associated with Kalamazoo. and in the community surrounding Graphic Packaging and Kalamazoo. Water harvesting plant, MDHHS told MLive.

The epidemiological assessment, one of the recommended actions identified during the development of the health check being drawn up, will begin in 2021, the MDHHS said.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency deployed mobile air monitoring equipment to Kalamazoo during the week of May 10, 2021, in response to complaints from citizens and at the request of the Department of the Environment, Great Lakes and Michigan Energy. The EPA has collected real-time monitoring data for hydrogen sulfide and volatile organic carbon in the air to compare measurements to health benchmarks, the agency told MLive.

A 14-year life expectancy gap exists in part of the zip code where part of the GPI factory is located. This means that people who live in certain places in the north of the city are expected to die 14 years earlier than people in another census tract nearby in the county.

In the past, city officials also discussed the issue of odors at meetings attended by commissioners, but did not allow public participation. These “small group” meetings have since been dissolved and replaced by a public committee of all meetings.

GPI told MLive in August that the company prioritizes the health and safety of employees and operating factories in an environmentally responsible manner.

“Graphic Packaging has worked with experts and consultants over the past year and these efforts have led to process changes in our sanitation system,” GPI previously said. “The actions taken have resulted in significant improvements to help reduce the odor potential of our operations. We believe these changes have resulted in tangible progress and this is supported by feedback from stakeholders. “

The company refers to a study it commissioned in 2020, which indicates that odors from the factory are not considered “harmful odors”.

“The state assessed the potential for health impacts when it issued our air permit and concluded that there would be no health problem. We are below our permit limits and are confident that we do not have any emissions that pose a threat to health, ”the company said.

The company submitted a nuisance minimization plan in December with the state of Michigan that is partially implemented, the company said in a statement to MLive.

GPI is also conducting a “detailed engineering study that assesses all potential sources of odor in the wastewater process, which we hope will result in additional actions offered by Graphic Packaging.”

This report is expected in September, the company said.

Residents, including those who spoke about the GPI tax break in September based on environmental issues, remain concerned.

The city’s environmental concerns committee, responsible for making recommendations to the city on environmental matters, briefly discussed the plant’s tax relief in August after the publication of MLive’s article on asthma.

Graphic Packaging International received state approval this week to use the proceeds of $ 125 million in tax-exempt bonds to fund part of its $ 615 million expansion at Kalamazoo.

“A dream? I’m not dreaming. Someday I’ll play here, you’ll see.”

One cannot have escaped the viral clip shared by the former club Anderlecht, as he completed his £ 97.5million transfer of Romelu Lukaku visiting Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge as a child .

Of course, Lukaku kept that promise in 2011 when he replaced Fernando Torres for the final seven minutes of a 3-1 home win over Norwich City. It was among eight outings at Stamford Bridge in Chelsea blue, but few could fault the striker for feeling a little dissatisfied.

One of the best strikers in the world left the club he supported as a child after 15 games, 466 minutes, 19 shots and zero goals.

There was more to Lukaku’s desire to run for Chelsea than the badge on his chest, however; he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Didier Drogba, the legend of the Blues whose jersey he wore in this clip from Anderlecht.

That second Stamford Bridge arc is yet to come, but Lukaku only needed 15 minutes of his return to Chelsea to emulate Drogba.

Of the 164 goals Drogba has scored as a Chelsea player, 13 have come against Arsenal – four more than against any other team. There were braces in the 2005 Community Shield final and the 2007 EFL Cup, as well as a 2009 FA Cup semi-final winner, in addition to his eight Premier League goals.

Drogba intimidated Arsenal; So Sunday, determined this time to try his luck at Chelsea, Lukaku too.

Nine years and 360 days after his debut against Norwich, Lukaku made up for lost time with an opener that showed many of the talents that should make Chelsea true challengers for the Premier League title.

The 28-year-old has been cleared to face goal at Inter far more often than in an ultimately frustrating spell at Manchester United, bringing the ball to 3,040 yards in Serie A last season, but he also has continued to tie the game, involved in 34 open end-of-goal streaks. He was the beneficiary this time.

Mateo Kovacic shot a pass into Lukaku’s feet 30 yards from goal and he held the ball just long enough to have four Arsenal players around him as he sent him back to the former midfielder of Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel had explained how Chelsea wanted to replace Olivier Giroud with “the kind of profile who likes to play with his back to goal, who likes to hold the balls, who creates space for Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, who is ready to go. fight physically with the defenders “. It was Reece James, rather than Werner, Havertz or Pulisic, who found himself all alone thanks to Lukaku’s distraction.

When Kovacic snapped a pass outside James, the race was in the middle and there would be only one winner. After Arsenal’s terrible loss to Brentford, there had been a debate over how Ben White would handle Lukaku’s physical presence. With White put down by COVID-19, it was Pablo Mari who was dismissed by Lukaku to leave a simple finish.

Arsenal looked to learn the lesson, challenging Lukaku as quickly as possible afterwards, but even that worked against them. Granit Xhaka’s lunge at Lukaku 10 minutes before halftime saw the ball run in place of Mount, who again found James unmarked to score.

As with Drogba, Arsenal never seemed comfortable trying to contain Lukaku, who did not add to his initial goal but created three chances, played 15 duels, won two fouls and scored one. header in the 77th minute that Bernd Leno instinctively hit on the crossbar among eight efforts.

The last Chelsea forward to have managed seven or more shots against Arsenal in a league encounter was, of course, Drogba (in 2006).

Tuchel has spoken at length about how Lukaku’s signing can benefit Werner. The former was a lesson from the sideline, however, with the much-maligned German striker scrapped for the new man and introduced only in the final minute of the 90s, offering just a fleeting glimpse of a formidable front two.

For Arsenal, meanwhile, the few positives came largely from the same men as last season – Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Kieran Tierney, at least in an offensive sense before his injury – when they knocked out Chelsea 3. -1 on Boxing Day, having entered the game 15th in the table and without a win in Sept.

The result inspired a vastly improved form, but their progress is pale next to Chelsea’s under Tuchel. Their signatures don’t compare to Lukaku either.

“We are trying to bring in the players we can afford, who right now can help us achieve what we want,” Mikel Arteta said this week, asking if Arsenal are operating at a “lower level”. “Chelsea would have a different plan,” he added.

The goal was Lukaku’s fourth against Arsenal, but he will support himself to add to that total depending on the apparent trajectory of both teams.

Only two years older than Drogba when he arrived in England, he has plenty of time to end his idol’s scoring in a game he dominated.

Ethan Klein denounced Durte Dom for hiring a Dabid Dobrik lookalike to claim he had “reunited” him in the wake of their fallout after allegations of sexual assault against him surfaced.

In March 2021, Durte Dom was charged with sexually assaulting an extra while filming Vlog Squad with David Dobrik.

And after other allegations surfaced, he apologized but claimed his character was “unfairly attacked.”

Dobrik was also grappling with his own controversies around the same time, and a rift began to form between him and Dom. However, after a long hiatus, Dobrik returned to YouTube, and it looked like the two had made things right, at least that’s what people thought.

According to Ethan Klein, the recent “reunion” videos Dom posted on social media don’t seem legitimate. In fact, he claims to have hired a lookalike to pretend to be Dobrik, though he’s not sure what his motive might be.

@dominykas

they threw dirt on our names, they tried to end us… try again! @daviddobrik @mattzworld 😛🙏🏻 #vlogsquad #tiktok #fyp

original sound – DurteDom

“People are saying he maybe hired a lookalike,” Klein said.

“Can you believe how disturbing it is?” In the midst of what he’s accused of. I feel like David could probably sue him for it. He went to get an extra that looked like David.

“Like, you can tell they’re acting. This is the next level. There are so many [that all have] the same double he hired. So his response to being accused of being a predator was to hire a David Dobrik lookalike and bring back a whole series of David and Dom.

Klein concluded that it was unclear whether Dom was trying to get Dobrik into trouble for revenge or just to get points of view. Either way, he laughed at the fact that he managed to get some “good mileage” from the lookalike.

Klein isn’t the only one who thinks Dom has hired a doppelganger. Many fans and viewers also came to the same conclusion.

One video looks more legitimate than the others, but people still have doubts as to whether it’s really Dobrik.

Tottenham record signing Tanguy Ndombele “considering options” after Nuno snob | Football | sport http://www.satgtu.org/tottenham-record-signing-tanguy-ndombele-considering-options-after-nuno-snob-football-sport/ Mon, 09 Aug 2021 16:23:00 +0000 http://www.satgtu.org/tottenham-record-signing-tanguy-ndombele-considering-options-after-nuno-snob-football-sport/ Tottenham star Tanguy Ndombele is considering his future after being snubbed by new boss Nuno Espirito Santo ahead of Sunday’s friendly with Arsenal, according to reports.

Tottenham star Tanguy Ndombele is considering his future after being snubbed by new boss Nuno Espirito Santo ahead of Sunday’s friendly with Arsenal, according to reports.

Ndombele is Spurs’ record signing but has had a frustrating time in north London since his £ 55million transfer from Lyon two years ago.

He played sporadically under Jose Mourinho in his debut season, starting just 12 Premier League appearances under the Portuguese.

Last season was more successful for the Frenchman. There have been 33 league games, including 28 starts, and some mind-blowing moments.

A lob against Sheffield United in January hinted that Ndmbele had finally moved to Spurs.

Nuno confirmed after the game that the 24-year-old was not injured and The Athletic claim he will now consider his options by the end of the transfer window.

“Tanguy is not with us today. He is not injured but we believe that it is not yet the time for him to be part of the game, ”the 47-year-old said quite enigmatically after the match.

Ndombele was recently caught in a strange display of frustration at not getting a free kick during an open training session at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs beat Arsenal thanks to a late goal from Son Heung-min.

The two teams have nominated mixed teams of first-team stars and fringe players for the match, which was organized to raise funds for the Mind for Mental Health charity.

Only one of Spurs’ new signings made it into the game, with goalkeeper Perluigi Gollini playing in the second half.

Gollini arrived on a one-season loan from Atalanta, from which fellow new boy Cristian Romero also arrived in a £ 40million transfer.

Sevilla winger Bryan Gil got an extended break after playing for Spain at the Olympics.

Nuno will also want to figure out the future of forward Harry Kane, who is widely believed to want to leave the club and pursue a move to Manchester City.

Kane has not played against Arsenal as he is isolating himself after returning to England last week, but could be in line to play against City this weekend.

Spurs start their Premier League campaign with a tricky test against the top champions, with the game played against the backdrop of the Kane transfer saga.

City have been linked with a £ 150million move but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is firmly convinced he doesn’t want to sell, especially to a division rival.

Kane released a statement on Friday saying he had refused to train at the club and would return to their Enfield training facility this week.

Swimming: As the honors soar, Hayes finally gets a break after an incredible year in the pool | High school sports http://www.satgtu.org/swimming-as-the-honors-soar-hayes-finally-gets-a-break-after-an-incredible-year-in-the-pool-high-school-sports/ Fri, 06 Aug 2021 22:15:00 +0000 http://www.satgtu.org/swimming-as-the-honors-soar-hayes-finally-gets-a-break-after-an-incredible-year-in-the-pool-high-school-sports/ There is a mountain of data suggesting that Aiden Hayes will only get better, bigger, stronger and faster in the pool, continuing to excel on multiple stages.

There is a mountain of data suggesting that Aiden Hayes will only get better, bigger, stronger and faster in the pool, continuing to excel on multiple stages.

Multiple state swimming champion Norman North leaves for North Carolina state on Sunday.

A two-day road trip, he’s due to arrive in Raleigh at noon Monday, move in Wednesday and start classes on the 16th.

Soon he will have the opportunity to be one of the best swimmers in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the NCAA, not to mention the nation and the world beyond his place with the Wolfpack, as it comes with the territory when you have previously competed in the United States Olympic Trials and recently was a member of the 21-player United States Junior National Team.

In fact, the international scene will take precedence over other things.

The next stop on Hayes’ competition calendar – not to mention the pool he will share with his Wolfpack teammates, several of whom are also part of the USNJT – is the FINA World Cup, which doesn’t just take place in Berlin on October 1st. 3, but picks up in Budapest from October 7 to 9, giving his passport a workout.

Past performances aside, there is every reason to believe that Hayes will only get better, bigger, stronger and faster in the pool, continuing to excel in multiple stages, solely depending on what ‘he’s thinking about his sport right now.

“Right now,” he said, “I’m taking my first official break in nine years. I really haven’t swam for about a month.

What makes him “official” is that he has never had a real break since he dove into the sport in his youth.

“Maybe a week or two all year round,” Hayes said, though he immediately qualified the statement, saying his free time had not been entirely free.

He’s free from water for about a week – “The 16th,” he said, “I’m back” – but the amazing thing, maybe, is what the breakup caused in him.

“Especially with the Olympics going on and everything that has happened,” said Hayes, “I thought about swimming more than ever and can’t wait to get back in the pool more than ever.”

His Sooner Swim Club coach Kent Nicholson, who also runs the North and Norman High programs, called Hayes a “prodigy,” though Hayes never really saw him that way.

“He didn’t start swimming until he was 11,” said Nicholson. “Since he was 11 it was sure. “






Aiden Hayes and his high school and Sooner Swim Club coach Kent Nicholson at the Class 6A swim competition in Jenks. It was in March. On Friday, Hayes competed in the second of his three events at the US Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska. (Ben Hayes / For the transcript)




Apparently, the natural attributes that made Hayes so remarkable, so quickly, aren’t limited to the physical.

Take him out of the pool for his first really extended break and he can’t wait to go back.

“I’m probably more obsessed with swimming right now than I’ve ever been,” said Hayes, “which is actually more of the opposite of what I thought I might feel.”

Given this revelation, perhaps the final year of Hayes’ competitive life, the historic accomplishment, is no less astonishing, but less surprising.

Hayes competed in the state swimming competition last February holding three state records in the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly.

On day one of competition, he beat his own marks in the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly, as well as that of his former teammate Daniel Wilson in the 100 freestyle. On the last day of the competition, he put them all back together and it wasn’t halfway.

He finished the 50 freestyle in 19.20, setting a new national public high school record. Exactly 13 minutes later, he finished the 100 butterfly in 45.47, shattering his new state mark by half a second, setting a national high school record for both public and private school competitors. In his final race, the 400 freestyle relay, he led the first 100 on a 43 flat, taking almost another half a second off the state mark he set the day before, when he improved the time. of his former teammate.

Competing in national events alongside his high school program, Hayes qualified directly for the Wave II stage of the Olympic Trials in three different events, the 200 butterfly, 100 butterfly and 50 freestyle.

Although he’s been out of the pool for a few weeks, the honors keep coming.

On August 1, Hayes was named the men’s swimmer of the year in the swimming world. Just this week, USAToday named him National High School Male Swimmer of the Year.

It has been a glorious time, but not an easy one.

“It’s been a really, really tough year,” said Hayes.

The COVID pandemic actually gave her more time to train, more time to spend in the pool, as her schooling did not require the same raw hours that she would normally have.

“These records weren’t possible without the time I was able to put in the pool and put less in school,” said Hayes.






6A Boys Swimming

Norman North’s Aiden Hayes breaks a state record in the 100-yard butterfly at the Class 6A Boys State Swimming Championships in Jenks on Thursday, February 25, 2021.




Not that he wants to repeat it. Indeed, he believes he has a new perspective.

For the past three years, Hayes said, it was always about reaching the Olympic Trials, the dream he fulfilled in June, inside the CHI Health Center in Omaha, New Brunswick, on Creighton basketball’s 17,500-seat home.

This trip over, finally with a little time to internalize everything, he has a thought.

“This sport is much more than a week or one race every four years,” he said.

The trip.

Not the destination.

Data indicates that Aiden Hayes will reach many other destinations. On his way to college, he can’t wait to get back on the road.

Local and foreign investors are showing greater interest in UK properties as a means of making profits. The residential market is not being impressed by the coronavirus pandemic and offers excellent potential, as demand for real estate exceeds supply.

Experts estimate a 21.1% increase in house prices in the UK and predict that the housing bubble will continue until 2025. While this represents an investment opportunity for many, investors know that good research is crucial. Knowing when and where to buy properties is part of any successful investment strategy.


Real estate investing in UK 101

Residential properties are in demand in the UK for this year and even in the years to come. Investors who wish to venture into this market should identify suitable types and locations of investment to generate substantial returns in the short and long term. Here are some things you should know:

# 1. Types of residential real estate investment

Financiers wishing to venture into UK real estate can choose between buy-lease, property development or new build reversals.

Buy-let involves buying properties and then renting them out as rooms, apartments or entire houses. As a long-term investment, rental purchase generates income and ensures capital growth.

This is the hottest real estate investment trend in the UK as most people find it more convenient to rent than to own. Foreign and local investors can consult UK property investment firms such as Thirlmere deacon and others to provide a range of options.

Those who prefer to invest for the short term can consider real estate development instead. In this scheme, investors renovate or renovate the property and then sell it for a higher price. They can look for properties that are below market value and upgrade them based on the preferences of the buyer.

This method looks promising for the UK housing market as the demand for refurbished housing increases. Buyers look for larger homes that can accommodate work-at-home arrangements. They also prefer houses with gardens as they seek to spend time outdoors despite intermittent closures.

Another investment option to consider is the new construction turnaround. Investors buy a property while construction is still in progress and then resell once the plot is complete.

This investment strategy responds to the growing demand for housing and ensures a hassle-free approach for passive investors. New construction guarantees improved functionality, lower maintenance costs and additional benefits according to the developer.

# 2. Investment hot spots

Apart from the types of investment, it is also essential to know the best places to buy a property. UK hotspots support the North-South Divide, the North and the Midlands boasting of lower prices and higher rental rates.

The Office of National Statistics shows that house prices have increased across the UK, with the following regions leading the housing boom:

  • North West: Liverpool North, Liverpool South, Crewe
  • Wales: Wrexham
  • East Midlands: Nottingham, Mansfield, Newark
  • West Midlands: Coventry, Wolverhampton
  • Yorkshire and Humber: Barnsley, Bradford, Dewsbury, Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds


Apart from this, investors can also explore regenerated cities that provide additional residential, commercial and recreational amenities. These zones are improving transportation networks and reallocating public spaces to comply with security protocols due to the pandemic.

They should also consider promising locations such as Falkirk and Kilmarnock in Scotland, Slough in Berkshire, Cleveland in North East England and Sunderland in Tyne and Wear. These are attractive to young professionals, families and even retirees due to the suburban vibe and proximity to urban centers.

# 3. Generation Rent

Besides the proper investments and market hot spots, investors should also know their target market – UK generation rentals. That span ranges from 20 years working in the concert economy, professionals in their mid-thirties, up to 65 and over who are downsizing to get the most out of their retirement money.

Renting is becoming a wise option for many as house prices continue to rise along with the rising cost of living. Investors can take advantage of this trend by venturing into the private rental sector, offering single-family homes, apartments, or multiple-occupancy homes (HMOs).

With HMO, three or more people who are not biologically related rent a single property and agree to use the same bathroom and kitchen. This can produce three times the rental yields, fewer arrears, and provide some tax benefits to homeowners.

Flexible housing options are in demand as most of the UK population continues to rent rather than own. This is a welcome opportunity for investors who want to take a share of the rental market.

# 4. Benefit from tax advantages

Buying real estate can also be an advantage for investors in terms of tax incentives and other benefits. As announced by the UK government, homeowners can still apply for a reduced stamp duty property tax until September 30, 2021. This extended tax break, as well as other incentives, applies to local owners and foreign investors.

Conclusion

Investors looking for profitable businesses may view UK properties as additions to their portfolio. With growing demand for rental housing and extended tax breaks, they can explore housing hot spots and provide affordable housing for all ages of UK renters.
