Real Madrid succumbed to a stunning 3-0 defeat at Eibar as Santiago Solari’s reign as permanent head coach got off to a torrid start on Saturday.Having taken over from the sacked Julen Lopetegui following the 5-1 Clasico drubbing at the hands of Barcelona, Solari showed early promise with four wins from four in his interim tenure.That run was enough to earn the former Madrid midfielder a deal through to June 2021, but his fortunes will have to improve drastically if he is to have any hope of remaining in the Santiago Bernabeu hotseat until then.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Gonzalo Escalante’s scrappy opener saw Madrid fall behind for the first time under Solari, and the writing was on the wall with quickfire goals early in the second period through Sergi Enrich and Kike.The shocking defeat capped a tough 48 hours for the club, who on Friday released a statement to deny accusations made by Der Spiegel that captain Sergio Ramos had broken anti-doping regulations on two occasions in the past.Ramos and the rest of the backline were soon under pressure, Thibaut Courtois producing a wonder-save to tip Kike’s dipping 30-yard volley onto the post, before Karim Benzema was denied on the line by Cote.After 15 minutes of frenetic action, Eibar broke the deadlock as Barca loanee Marc Cucurella surged down the left and squared for Kike. His attempt was brilliantly kept out by Courtois but Escalante managed to bundle the ball home from inside the six-yard box.5 – Real Madrid have only attempted five total shots in the first half against Eibar, the lowest figure they have recorded at halftime in a single all competitions game under Santiago Solari. Clog. pic.twitter.com/bj9F4gzCYy— OptaJose (@OptaJose) November 24, 2018And shortly after the restart, the European champions’ woe worsened.Toni Kroos played a poor pass across the defence to Alvaro Odriozola, who dallied on the ball, allowing Cucurella to steal in and tee up Enrich for a low finish inside the left-hand post.Five minutes later, the game was effectively put beyond a desperate Madrid as Cucurella whipped in a low cross that took a touch off Enrich and ran perfectly for Kike to tap into an empty net from five yards to seal Eibar’s first ever league win over their illustrious opponents.What does it mean? Solari under the pump immediatelyThings could hardly have gone worse for the new head coach. One defeat in isolation is far from disastrous, but the manner of such a loss was concerning. Leaders Barca could be seven points clear of Madrid by the end of Saturday.Cucurella a class aboveEscalante, Enrich and Kike scored the goals but Cucurella was the real star. On loan from Madrid’s fierce rivals, he tormented the right side of Los Blancos’ defence and had a hand in all three goals.Madrid malaise returns with a vengeanceOften under Lopetegui, Madrid looked devoid of inspiration. In Solari’s four interim games in charge, there were signs of improvement, but this capitulation was a major step back. The Bernabeu board may be wondering if they showed faith in the right man.Key Opta Facts- Real Madrid have conceded 19 goals after the first 13 LaLiga 2018-19 matchdays, their worst start in a single LaLiga season since 2008-09 (20 goals conceded).- Eibar have won their first LaLiga game against Real Madrid, Barcelona or Atletico Madrid after 26 meetings against these sides (W1 D3 L22).- Madrid had only three shots on target against Eibar, their joint lowest figure in away games across all competitions in 2018.- Thibaut Courtois has conceded 18 goals in 11 league games for Real Madrid (1.64 on average); the Belgian conceded 94 goals in 111 league games for Atletico in the competition (0.85 on average).What’s next?Madrid will seek to bounce back and secure Champions League progression from Tuesday’s trip to Roma, while Eibar travel to struggling Rayo Vallecano on Friday. read more

zoomImage Courtesy: Port of Newcastle The National Competition Council’s (NCC’s) draft recommendation on Port of Newcastle, if exercised, would turn the port into an unregulated monopolist, according to the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).Namely, the ACCC has raised concerns following NCC’s draft recommendation on the port, which includes the potential removal of regulation of the shipping channel service at the Port of Newcastle.The port, which provides the only commercially viable means of exporting coal from the Hunter Valley region in New South Wales, was privatised in 2014 via a 98-year lease to Port of Newcastle Operations.The NCC’s preliminary view that the declaration should be revoked would mean the terms and conditions of access to the port would be unregulated.“Should the declaration be revoked, the Port of Newcastle will be an unregulated monopolist that is able to determine the terms and conditions of its access with little constraint,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims said.“It would be reasonable to expect that, without regulation, further price increases at the port would follow and this would be a bad outcome for users and the economy, particularly given the history here,” Sims added.The NCC’s recommendation follows an application from the port’s owner, Port of Newcastle Operations, that the declaration of the shipping channel be revoked.In October 2018, after an application by port user Glencore, the ACCC determined the port should reduce its charge for the shipping channel service by about 20 per cent.

This is the third time the Joint Border Committee (JBC) has convened, and the first time the committee has held bilateral negotiations in East Timor. The Committee last met in July in Jakarta.According to UNTAET, the East Timorese agenda includes developing a general mutual understanding of what “border normalization” entails and endorsing an Indonesian “Right of Transit Passage” proposal that will allow East Timorese to travel between the Oecussi enclave in West Timor and the other districts of East Timor.The recommendations from the JBC meeting are expected to be passed on to the Council of Ministers of East Timor and the Indonesian Government for discussion and approval. Agreements reached will eventually be passed on to the Border Liaison Committee for implementation.The heads of the two delegations, East Timorese Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Fernando de Araújo, and the Head of the Research and Development Board at the Indonesian Foreign Ministry, Muhammad Yusuf, each expressed great satisfaction over the convening of the meeting in Dili, and their strong hope for the JBC’s continued progress.
Junior forward LaQuinton Ross (10) glides to the hoop for a score during a game against Delaware Dec. 18 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 76-64. Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerShortly after tip against Louisiana-Monroe, the Ohio State Buckeyes looked as if they wanted to finish their final non-conference game as quickly as possible.No. 3 OSU (13-0, 0-0) jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the opening four minutes against the Warhawks (3-5, 0-0), and cruised to an easy 71-31 victory Friday.“I’m excited. Honestly, I’m just ecstatic. I can’t wait,” senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said after the win about the opportunity to start Big Ten play next week. “I know it’s going to be fun, some great challenges. We’re going to learn a lot about this team. All the games up to this point is what we’ve been preparing for — the Big Ten conference.”The Buckeyes are set to travel to Purdue Tuesday. The Big Ten conference currently has four teams in the top 25, with three being in the top five.“I think sometimes during the non-conference, as you play some of these teams that are not as good as you are, you actually play down to them. That’s not good for teams, that’s not what you’re supposed to do,” junior forward LaQuinton Ross said after the win. “When we come out in Big Ten play, there’s going to be teams that are just as good as us, and we’re going to have to play.”Ross finished with a double-double against Louisiana-Monroe, pouring in 15 points and collecting 10 rebounds. He was one of three Buckeyes to finish the game in double figures scoring, as sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle tallied 14 and Smith Jr. led all scorers with 17.“I was very pleased with the energy we played with. Defensively I thought we were unselfish, offensively I thought we missed some open shots that I wish we could make, but for the most part, I thought they did a good job of getting themselves ready to play,” OSU coach Thad Matta said following the win.Louisiana-Monroe shot just 10 of 54 from the field, including 3 of 18 from beyond the 3-point line. No player scored more than seven points against OSU, who heads into Big Ten play as one of two undefeated teams in the conference along with No. 4 Wisconsin. Matta said the tough play in the conference is the reason players come to play at OSU.“We tell our guys, ‘You’ve got 18 battles coming up. The war’s decided in March,’” Matta said. “Just from the standpoint of the challenges that lie ahead, that’s what guys sign up for when they come to play at Ohio State. There’s going to be some tremendous battles every night we take the floor, and I think for us, it’s exciting.”OSU led, 41-20, at halftime and used a 15-0 run to open the second half to put things even further out of reach. Louisiana-Monroe failed to score its first point in the second half until there was just 10:40 left to play.The Buckeyes won 12 of their 13 non-conference games by at least 10 points, with the only exception coming Dec. 21 when they defeated Notre Dame 64-61, and seem prime for the rugged Big Ten.“I think what these 13 games did, it showed us where we measure out at — how good our team really is,” Ross said. “Going back through some of the games, I’m pretty sure the coaches are going to go back and look at some of those games and think about some of those games and see what we have done, see how we have grown from the first game to this game right here. I think it’s just going to to give us a measurement, how good our team is for the Big Ten.”Even though the Buckeyes are one of the nation’s top-ranked teams, that doesn’t necessarily mean much, Smith Jr. said.“I don’t really think those rankings mean anything,” Smith Jr. said. “I think you take away everybody’s rankings right now because when you get into conference play, each night if you don’t come to play, you’re going to lose.”Tipoff between the Buckeyes and Boilermakers (10-3, 0-0) Tuesday is set for 1 p.m. at Mackey Arena.Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that OSU won each of their non-conference games by at least 10 points. In fact, the Buckeyes won 12 of their 13 games by at least double digits, only defeating Notre Dame by three points Dec. 21.
Le Meizu MX sort avec des spécificités revues à la hausseOn avait eu vent des capacités de ce concurrent direct de l’iPhone d’Apple en Chine. Le lancement officiel de ce smartphone a eu lieu hier et il semblerait que le Meizu MX avait comme résolution d’améliorer quelques unes de ses performances.Sorti en Chine et à Hong-Kong le jour du Nouvel An, le MX aurait, en moins d’un moins, retravaillé quelques-uns de ses éléments. Il embarquera bien un processeur dual-core 1,4 GHz mais sera certainement plus simple d’utilisation grâce à des boutons retouchés. De même, la lentille de l’APN 8 mégapixels bénéficiera d’un revêtement anti-salissures. Autre gros point positif: le MX devrait bénéficier de la mise à jour vers Android 4.0.Quelques surprises sympas donc, que les chinois peuvent d’ores et déjà apprécier. 900 d’entre eux faisaient la queue devant la boutique de Meizu à Hong-Kong pour se procurer le MX au prix de 2999 yuan, soit 370 euros.Le 2 janvier 2012 à 18:45 • Maxime Lambert

At least 12 people were killed in a massive blaze that engulfed a London tower block on Wednesday, raising serious questions about fire safety in Britain’s housing blocks.Here is what we know so far:How many victims?The police have said at least 12 people were killed at Grenfell Tower in west London and they expect the number to rise as emergency workers make their way through the building.”Sadly I don’t anticipate that there will be further survivors,” Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy said in a televised address.The London Ambulance Service said it had treated 69 patients, 18 of whom remained in critical condition by Wednesday afternoon.The 24-storey tower is home to between 600 and 800 residents and has one stairway through which people could escape, locals told AFP.London Mayor Sadiq Khan said firefighters were only able to reach the 12th floor of the 24-storey block at the height of the blaze.More than 200 firefighters were deployed to put out the fire. Some 100 medics tended the casualties.What happened?Fire services said they received the first call at 00:54 am on Wednesday (2354 GMT Tuesday) and were on scene at the Grenfell Tower public housing complex within six minutes.Witnesses reported the entire building was on fire by around 2:00 am (0100 GMT). Around an hour later the London Fire Brigade also tweeted that the whole building was in flames, starting from the second floor.Survivors said they saw the flames outside their windows, rising up the exterior of the building, which had recently been covered in cladding during a major refurbishment finished last year.”It appears that the external cladding has significantly contributed to the spread of fire,” said Angus Law from the BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.Where was the fire?Grenfell Tower is a concrete block built in 1974 in the working-class area of north Kensington in west London.The £8.7 million (9.9 million euro, $11 million) refurbishment of the block was completed last year and included new windows and heating system.The area neighbours the wealthy district of Notting Hill.What were residents’ concerns?Construction firm Rydon, which completed the refurbishment of the tower in 2016, said the work “met all required building control, fire regulation and health and safety standards”.David Collins, former chairman of the Grenfell Tower Residents’ Association, said the building’s management had failed to listen to residents’ calls for improvements on fire safety.”If the same concerns were had in a wealthy part of Kensington and Chelsea they would have got resolved, but here they didn’t get resolved,” Collins told AFP.”This is a multi-ethnic, multicultural, diverse community that just didn’t get served by the people representing them,” he said.Local residents had warned a year ago about a potential fire risk caused by rubbish being allowed to accumulate during the refurbishment.”This matter is of particular concern as there is only one entry and exit to Grenfell Tower during the improvement works,” read a blog post by the Grenfell Action Group.”The potential for a fire to break out in the communal area on the walkway does not bear thinking about as residents would be trapped in the building with no way out,” it said.Some residents said the official advice was that people should stay inside in the event of a fire.Khan said the advice would be looked into.”We can’t have is a situation (where) people’s safety is put at risk because of bad advice being given or if it is the case, as it’s been alleged, of tower blocks not being properly serviced and maintained,” he told the BBC.British Prime Minister Theresa May’s new chief of staff Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, promised a review of building regulations covering fire safety following a fatal 2009 fire in another London local authority apartment block.The review has not been published.
X 00:00 /00:56 Listen Al Ortiz The Harris County Commissioners Court has approved the buyout of several Houston homes that flooded before Harvey.The Harris County Commissioners Court approved Tuesday the buyout of several Houston homes that flooded before Harvey.Using $10.6 million the City of Houston received from the federal government, the Harris County Flood Control District will buy out homes that already flooded in the pre-Harvey era.The homes are located in neighborhoods such as Braeburn Glen, Langwood and Cashiola.For Judge Ed Emmett, the next big question is determining how many homes should be bought out based on the flooding Harvey caused.“The bigger issue is how many are in the overall potential buyout pool and then that’s the number that we’ve got to send to the state and the state gets that up to the feds and then the federal government says: ‘Well, we’ll give you this much money’,” Emmett noted when he addressed the local media after the Court’s bi-monthly meeting.The Commissioners also approved appraising 41 properties located in Harris County, which will be bought out using funds from a FEMA grant.These properties also suffered flooding before Harvey.So far, Harris County hasn’t received federal funding for buyouts specifically related to Harvey.

April 1, 2011 – Jan Medical announced that clinical data related to its portable brain imaging system were disclosed at the Society of Interventional Radiology Annual Meeting. The data demonstrated a breakthrough in detecting strokes.The system is designed for the diagnosis of traumatic brain injury, including concussions.Diagnosis utilizing the device takes minutes. It emits no energy into the brain and is therefore positioned as a “Non-Significant Risk” in clinical trial protocols. Continuous monitoring options include hours, days or weeks until the condition is resolved or requires intervention. All other brain imaging alternatives, such as CT and MRI, are snapshots.Kieran J. Murphy, M.D., vice chair and deputy chief of medical imaging and director of medical imaging research at the University of Toronto presented the data. “Our study validates that the Jan Medical system represents a new paradigm for detecting, diagnosing and monitoring of stroke,” said Murphy. “The small size, portability and rapidity of imaging will allow diagnosis of stroke victims in minutes, which in turn will allow for stroke triage outside of a hospital setting, thus further reducing the time to initial treatment—which should dramatically improve patient outcomes.”“Stroke is the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of disability,” added Paul Lovoi, Ph.D., CEO of Jan Medical. “While some 1.5 million patients present annually with what appear to be stroke symptoms, half of them have actually not had a stroke. We believe that our system can have an enormously favorable impact by empowering healthcare providers to make a reliable assessment of stroke in just minutes. Patient outcomes will then be improved because healthcare providers will have the correct and timely information they need to treat their patients faster, at lower cost and less risk.”The Jan Medical System is an investigational device in the United States.

Cyrus, M.D., vice president and head of U.S. Medical Affairs, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. “The development of a compound like radium-223 is an example of Bayer’s commitment to investing in approaches to treat hard-to-treat cancers.”Radium-223 was granted fast track designation by the FDA. The fast track process is designed to facilitate the development and expedited review of drugs to treat serious diseases and fill an unmet medical need. Fast track designation must be requested by the drug company and can be initiated at any time during the drug development process.The submission was based on data from the ALSYMPCA (ALpharadin in SYMptomatic Prostate CAncer) trial, a phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled international study of radium-223 with BSC vs. placebo with BSC in symptomatic CRPC patients with bone metastases. The trial enrolled 921 patients in more than 100 centers in 19 countries. The study treatment consisted of up to six intravenous administrations of radium-223 or placebo each separated by an interval of four weeks.The primary endpoint of the study was overall survival. Secondary endpoints included time to occurrence of skeletal-related events (SRE), time to total alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression, total ALP response and normalization, safety, and quality of life.About CRPC and Bone MetastasesProstate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States (other than skin cancer). Approximately 16 percent of prostate cancer cases are considered regional or distant, which means that the cancer has spread beyond the prostate to nearby or distant areas of the body (metastasis).A majority of men with CRPC have radiological evidence of bone metastases. Bone metastases secondary to prostate cancer typically target the lumbar spine, vertebrae and pelvis. In fact, bone metastases are the main cause of morbidity and death in patients with CRPC.About Radium Ra 223 DichlorideRadium Ra 223 dichloride (radium-223), formerly referred to as radium-223 chloride, is an investigational alpha particle emitting pharmaceutical in development for CRPC patients with bone metastases.In September 2009, Bayer signed an agreement with Algeta ASA (Oslo, Norway) for the development and commercialization of radium-223. Under the terms of the agreement, Bayer will develop, apply for health authority approvals worldwide, and commercialize radium-223 globally. Algeta will co-promote radium-223 with Bayer in the United States.Radium-223 is an investigational agent and not approved by the FDA, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or other health authorities.For more information: www.bayer.comReferences:1.
