Man City have been Premier League’s BEST team, says defiant Manuel Pellegrini

first_img Manuel Pellegrini 1 Manuel Pellegrini has hit back at Manchester City’s critics, insisting his side have been the best in the Premier League this season.After setting the early pace in the title race by winning all five of their opening games without conceding a single goal, City’s league form has dipped since early September.They have won just four of their last ten games and last weekend’s defeat at Stoke has seen them slip to third, leading to question marks over City’s ability to produce the goods on a consistent basis.But Pellegrini appears to have no concerns, telling reporters ahead of Saturday’s visit of managerless Swansea: “I know that we are qualified in every competition, I know that we are top of the table… or we were top of the table just one game ago.“For 13 games we were the leaders so I expect that we have a very good team. Maybe we played three bad games in the whole season but in all the other games I think that we are a very consistent team and the best team this season.”There is a feeling Pellegrini’s attacking philosophy leaves a defence already weakened by the absence of the injured Vincent Kompany too exposed, but he denies this is an issue and will not change his approach.He said: “I like to play attacking football, I like to score a lot of goals, but I prefer to win 4-0 than 4-2.“If we are conceding goals it’s just not because we are playing attacking football. For the two goals of Borussia (Monchengladbach) we had seven or eight players near our box.”If that is the case, then Pellegrini accepts mistakes must be being made elsewhere, and he knows they need to be eradicated to keep the title bid on track.He said: “Of course. We need to because we’re too ugly. You can lose to any team here in England but you can’t lose ugly, by an important amount of goals.“It’s an important thing that we analyse why but I know exactly what to expect from this team every game.”last_img read more

Police to use pedal patrol Officers to target foot-traffic areas

first_imgRios and others who are now on bike patrol said they qualified for the program by taking a 40-hour course in “defensive driving” for bicyclists. The team includes six deputies and Craig, with a maximum of four typically on patrol at any one time. “Most of the people who are going to be doing the bikes are bike enthusiasts themselves,” Rios said. “They do this on their off time.” Craig said the program serves the two-fold purpose of reaching out to the community and being more effective in close quarters. “In an area that is subject to all kinds of auto burglaries and auto thefts, it lets us get around the traffic unhampered and stealthy,” Craig said. Rios said officers have made one arrest on bike patrol since they began work on Oct. 24, and they have stopped others for a variety of violations. “Of course, the people who we do stop are flabbergasted,” Rios said, adding that many motorists think the deputies are theater security or do not notice the bikes when driving. Capt. Michael Rothans presented one of the bikes at an Oct. 22 meeting, to show the council members the features of the equipment they helped to buy. “The captain played with lights and let the sirens whistle,” Mayor Ron Beilke said. Beilke said the idea for increased bike patrols came from the council, and Councilman Bob Archuleta even rode the new bicycle to get a feel for the job. Beilke said the bikes are a good alternative to patrol cars. “It’s less intrusive than having a squad car there, especially in a crowded situation like the Krikorian center,” Beilke said. Craig said the program is safe for officers on the job, and that they have backup support when needed. A squad car would be called in if a situation got dangerous, or if deputies wanted to transport someone after an arrest. Generally, however, the bicycle deputies stay independent of patrol cars, even riding the two miles from the station each day to their post at the theater. “It’s just as safe as walking,” Rios said. “If you’re a bike enthusiast, you know.” airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station, with the help of the city, has recently purchased four new bicycles for officers to use in patrolling areas with heavy foot traffic. The new bikes will be used full time at the Village Walk Shopping Center, where the Pico Rivera Village Walk 15 Krikorian Premiere Theatre is located. “So far we’ve had all positive feedback,” said Sgt. Scott Craig, who heads the program. “The deputy is out of the car, and they’re more approachable and readily accessible.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Bicycle patrol had previously been used in Pico Rivera for special events, like Fourth of July celebrations. If the new patrol in the theater complex is successful, the program may be expanded to cover other areas including city parks and other shopping areas. “We’re looking forward to this being a permanent thing,” Deputy Jose Rios said. “That would be our vision.” Each bike costs about $2,100. They were purchased in a joint effort by the city and sheriff’s station. They replaced six older bikes, bought 12 years ago for special event patrol. Craig said the new bicycles have technological advantages over the old models. Rios said the difference is instantly noticeable for the cyclist. “The old bikes … they’re in disrepair,” Rios said. “The bikes we have now are hydraulic. They have hydraulic brakes, they have shocks. They’re awesome.” last_img read more

Mr. Whipple portrayer Wilson, 91, dies

first_imgThe first commercial aired in 1964 and by the time the campaign ended in 1985 the tag line and Wilson, a former Canadian airman and vaudeville veteran, were pop-culture touchstones. “Everybody says, `Where did they find you?’ I say I was never lost. I’ve been an actor for 55 years,” Wilson told the San Francisco Examiner in 1985. Though Wilson said he initially resisted commercial work, he learned to appreciate its nuance. “It’s the hardest thing to do in the entire acting realm. You’ve got 24 seconds to introduce yourself, introduce the product, say something nice about it and get off gracefully.” Dennis Legault, Procter & Gamble’s Charmin brand manager, said in a statement that Wilson deserves much of the credit for Charmin’s success in the marketplace. Dick Wilson, the character actor and pitchman who for 21 years played an uptight grocer begging customers “Please, don’t squeeze the Charmin,” died Monday. He was 91. Wilson died of natural causes at the Motion Picture & Television Fund Hospital in Woodland Hills, said his daughter Melanie Wilson, who is known for her role as a flight attendant on the ABC sitcom “Perfect Strangers.” “He is part of the culture. He was still funny to the very end. That’s his legacy,” his daughter said. Wilson made more than 500 commercials as Mr. George Whipple, a man consumed with keeping bubbly housewives from fondling toilet paper. The punch line of most spots was that Whipple himself was a closeted squeezer. “It is not an exaggeration to say that the Mr. Whipple character, which Dick Wilson portrayed for so many years, is one of the most recognizable faces in the history of American advertising,” Legault said. During his run as Mr. Whipple, Wilson also performed on the dinner theater circuit, shot occasional stand-up comedy shows and worked on dozens of TV sitcoms. He played the drunk on several episodes of “Bewitched,” and appeared as various characters on “Hogan’s Heroes,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” and Walt Disney productions. After Wilson retired in 1985, he continued to do occasional guest appearances for the brand and act on television. He declared himself not impressed with modern cinema. “The kind of pictures they’re making today, I’ll stick with toilet paper,” he told The Associated Press in 1985. Born July 30, 1916, in England, Wilson moved to Canada as a child. Wilson is survived by his wife, Meg; son, Stuart; and two daughters, Wendy and Melanie. A private funeral will be held Dec. 1.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img

ANGLO-GATE: PEARSE DOHERTY SAYS NEWSPAPER INVESTIGATION SHOWS HOW BANK DEFRAUDED THE COUNTRY

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said the tapes from inside Anglo Irish Bank, published today in the Irish Independent, reveal a concerted effort by executives in Anglo Irish Bank to defraud the Irish State.The tapes have been put online at www.independent.ie as part of an investigation by reporter Paul Williams.Deputy Doherty said the fact that both of the executives continued to work in IBRC on a huge salary, one of them right up to February of this year, is an indictment on this government and called for prosecutions for people involved in the collapse of the Irish economy. He said: “These revelations are shocking to the core. They reveal a concerted effort by executives in Anglo Irish to defraud the Irish State.“They prove conclusively that an investigation is needed into events surrounding the bank guarantee and subsequently and that people must be prosecuted for their roles in collapsing the Irish economy.“Here we have a situation in which two senior executives laughed and joked about their attempts to defraud the state of billions of euros.“Their actions have led to austerity, job losses and hardship across the state. “I revealed in 2011 that 22 of the top 50 Anglo executives were still in place in the bank on huge salaries, 19 of them earning more than 175k per annum.“Alarmingly, John Bowe continued to work for Anglo/IBRC right up to last year and Peter Fitzgerald only left in February of this year. That is an indictment on this government.“How did this man pass any fitness and probity tests by the central bank?“The government’s foot dragging on the banking inquiry is unacceptable. Like the last government, Fine Gael and Labour are taking a hands-off approach to the banks while they pay their executives over the top salaries, increase their interest rates at will and seek increased powers to repossess homes from struggling mortgage holders.” ANGLO-GATE: PEARSE DOHERTY SAYS NEWSPAPER INVESTIGATION SHOWS HOW BANK DEFRAUDED THE COUNTRY was last modified: June 24th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ANGLO-GATE: PEARSE DOHERTY SAYS NEWSPAPER INVESTIGATION SHOWS HOW BANK DEFRAUDED THE COUNTRYlast_img read more

DONEGAL BUSINESSES TO GET CHANCE TO GET HEALTH CHECK-UP!

first_imgBusinesses in Donegal will get the opportunity to perform a Business Health check and determine if their enterprise is fit for the future, at a fantastic event organised as part of this year’s Enterprising Donegal Business Week.Andrew CurryThe Futures Company event will take place in An Grianan, Hotel, Burt on Thursday March 6th from 9am to 1pm and according to Andrew Curry who will deliver the programme, those who attend will learn how to re-focus on the needs of their customers.“It doesn’t matter whether you are a large multi-national or a sole trader, your customer is the key to your survival, development and growth. “Sometimes when you are consumed with everything that is involved in running a business you can lose sight of that. This event will help you re-focus on your customer and their needs,” Mr. Curry said.He added that those who attend the event in Burt will get an opportunity to look at what the needs of their customer are, and to determine if there are things they could change to acquire more customers.“As part of the morning event we will look at some of the consumer trends and how things are changing globally and those attending will get to ask questions and try to determine if they are really selling the right things to the right people.”The Thursday event will, said Mr. Curry, be one of participation, with those in attendance very much taking part in the process, asking questions and interacting with the other businesses attending. “At the end of the event, everyone will be able to take away worksheets of the morning’s learning and they will be able to bring that back to their business to look again at how they can make adjustments or improvements. They will be able to perform a business health check,” he added.The Futures Company has glowing testimonials from huge companies like Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, GlaxoSmithKline and Diageo to name but a few, but their Director Andrew Curry said the principles apply every bit as much to a small business – perhaps indeed, even more so – since the loss of even a few customers can often have a massive impact on a small business.“The event will be a great way to re-focus on who your customer actually is and hopefully everyone will go away with one or two ideas on how to improve their business and build on their customer base for the future,” he said.Of course the Futures Company event in An Grianan Hotel is just one of many lined up as part of the terrific line-up organised for the 10th annual Donegal Enterprise Week.“This year’s programme once again has a terrific range of speakers, workshops and seminars all aimed at providing opportunities for learning and networking. The ultimate objective is to help established businesses and indeed new start-ups to grow and develop, which will assist the economy of our county,” Michael Tunney, CEO of DCEB said. “The full line-up of events is available online and while all of the events are free, it is necessary to register and we’d urge people to visit donegalenterprise.ie to have a look at the week’s programme and to register as soon as possible,” Mr. Tunney added.He concluded: “Having teamed up with Sendmode as a partner this year, people can also receive text information and reminders about Donegal Enterprise Week if they free text DEW to 50015.”County & City Enterprise Boards are funded by the Irish Government and part-funded by the European Union under the National Development Plan 2007-2013.DONEGAL BUSINESSES TO GET CHANCE TO GET HEALTH CHECK-UP! was last modified: February 25th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Andrew CurryDonegal Business Weeklast_img read more

Shedding new light on a greener 2008

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonOver the century, five other versions of the ball were designed to ring in the New Year. In 1999, the ball was made from crystal to welcome the new millennium. This year, the motif is “Let There Be Light” and features a stylized, radiating sunburst on each of the crystal triangles. The ball was tested successfully Sunday afternoon, making its way slowly up and down the 77-foot flagpole atop 1 Times Square with bursts of color. The Times Square New Year’s Eve ball is celebrating its centennial by going green. The star of the world-famous holiday extravaganza was revamped this year with 9,576 energy-efficient bulbs that use about the same amount of electricity as 10 toasters. Philips Lighting, which created the light-emitting diodes, or LED bulbs, specifically for the event, says they are smaller but more than twice as bright as last year’s lights, which were a mix of more than 600 incandescent and halogen bulbs. And the new lights can create more than 16 million colors for a kaleidoscope of hues against the 672 Waterford Crystal triangles. The ball was first dropped for the New Year’s Eve celebration in 1907. Made of iron and wood, it weighed 700 pounds and was lit with 100 25-watt incandescent bulbs. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ARE YOU A MAVERICK? TOP TIPS ON GOOD SKINCARE FOR MEN

first_imgMAVERICKS COLUMN: Following on from the last column on “talking to your barber”, although men primarily come in to Mavericks to get their hair cut, a hot towel shave or a beard trim, we are often asked by our customers for advice on their skin.So to help out the men of Donegal Daily, we have compiled a basic Q&A on skin care for men. How does men’s skin differ from that of women?Men’s skin tends to be both thicker and oilier. This extra lubrication is essential for beard growth and helps to counterbalance the ravages of time, protecting the skin and acting as a natural wrinkle-reducer. Despite the benefits, having excess skin oil does have a downside – when the oil combines with dirt and dead cells, it can clog the pores causing spots.What happens to the skin as men age?Skin changes dramatically as you age. During puberty, when a man’s hormones are kicking into high gear, the body produces more sebum (oil). However, as men get older, oil production in the skin reduces and moisturisers with age-defying ingredients are needed to nourish, hydrate and help combat the skin’s aging process. The sun…friend or foe?While sunshine may lift your spirits the odd time we get it around the hills of Donegal, it does nothing but harm the skin. Exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays is one of the leading causes of premature skin aging and also puts you at greater risk of developing skin cancer. Dermatologists suggest that, regardless of skin type, a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 is essential for year-round use.What is exfoliation and why do I need to do it?Skin produces cells that continually renew themselves. Exfoliation helps rid the skin of the dead cells that build up on its surface. Scrubs containing granules gently buff away impurities and dead surface cells, stimulating skin renewal and revitalising the complexion without any redness or flaking.What products should I use for shaving?When wet shaving, a lot of men try to cut corners and use cheap aerosol shaving foams and gels. The vast majority of these products contain additional chemicals that irritate the skin as opposed to soothing it. To create their texture, they are also heavily aerated, creating insufficient lubrication between the razor and skin. The best products to use are shaving oils or, better again, are the old fashioned shaving soaps or creams. Prorasso has a range of shaving soaps and creams which are second to none. When used correctly they result in the smoothest shave achievable. We use the Prorasso range ourselves for the hot towel shave and it is also available to buy in Mavericks. Anyone who has tried it, hasn’t looked back. Under eye cream: Is it for men?Check out any photo of yourself that’s at least five years old and you’ll no doubt see far more significant changes in the eye area than in any other area of your face. The skin under the eye is extremely delicate, and as you age, it gets thinner, making it extremely susceptible to wrinkles. It’s especially important to feed the vulnerable under-eye area with a nutrient-packed, super-hydrating, under-eye cream. Start today – even if you’re only in your twenties – for results you can see like fine lines beginning to diminish.I hope this helps and gives you an insight on how to slow down the clock.For any more advice on skin care for men just contact us on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Maverick-Traditional-Barbershop-1544230652533677/?fref=ts or call into Mavericks Traditional Barbershop, Lower Main Street, Letterkenny.
