Three things we learned today at the WCup

first_imgHere, AFP Sport looks at three things we learned today at the World Cup.Argentina must improveArgentina dug deep to rescue their World Cup hopes in a dramatic match against Nigeria, but were lucky to see their defensive deficiencies not punished more often.Lionel Messi was inspirational and became only the third Argentinian to score at three World Cups with a majestic opening goal, but their defence was wide open for long periods and Odion Ighalo’s missed chance with the game level at 1-1 proved crucial.But with five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi anything is possible, and France will have to find a way to shackle the Barcelona star in their last-16 showdown in Kazan on Saturday. Didier Deschamps and co will be quietly confident of picking apart Argentina, though, with it hard to see how goalscoring hero Rojo and Nicolas Otamendi will be able to stave off the pace and trickery of Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.Argentina fans will celebrate the brilliance of Messi, Rojo’s winner and the bravery of the bloodied Javier Mascherano, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if the win provides only temporary respite for coach Jorge Sampaoli and his team.Croatia have strength in depthZlatko Dalic’s men impressed in their 3-0 dismantling of Argentina, but they further displayed their title credentials with a 2-1 victory over Iceland to finish first in Group D despite making nine changes. Milan Badelj’s volley put Croatia in front, before Ivan Perisic’s last-gasp winner after Gylfi Sigurdsson’s equaliser from the spot.With the likes of Fiorentina’s Badelj, defender Vedran Corluka and Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic not even in the usual starting XI, Croatia have plenty of strength in depth.The 1998 semi-finalists may need it if they’re to go all the way, and they will be heavy favourites to see off Denmark in the last 16 and at least set up a quarter-final against either Spain or Russia.France still in first gearDeschamps’s France completed a successful Group C campaign with a goalless draw against Denmark to wrap up top spot, but it was a third successive lifeless display in attack from one of the pre-tournament favourites.Griezmann, who was the top-scorer at Euro 2016 as France lost to Portugal in the final, failed to even complete a pass to his strike partner Olivier Giroud on Tuesday, while Barcelona youngster Ousmane Dembele was ineffective and hauled off in the second half.But France are more than capable of clicking into gear come the knockout rounds — five of Griezmann’s six Euro goals came after the group stage.Deschamps is hoping that proves to be the case, saying that his side are now facing a “second competition” after “achieving their goal” in the group.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Marcos Rojo’s magnificent side-footed volley rescued Argentina’s World Cup dreams, but they next face France© AFP GABRIEL BOUYSMOSCOW, Russia, June 26 – Marcos Rojo’s late winner against Nigeria on Tuesday salvaged Argentina’s World Cup hopes and set up a heavyweight last-16 showdown against France.Iceland’s dreams of replicating their Euro 2016 run to the quarter-finals came to an end with a 2-1 loss to Croatia, while France wrapped up top spot in Group C with a tepid draw against Denmark.last_img read more

Sewer project creates a stink

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Burbank Mayor Jef Vander Borght has heard an earful from constituents and predicts: “The odor would be the No. 1 issue.” Los Angeles officials have outlined two alternatives for a six-mile underground line in the Southeast Valley that would help carry the 20 percent increase in sewage expected by 2020. A draft environmental impact report has been circulating for the past month, and community meetings have been held to gauge residents’ support. But late last week, days before today’s scheduled close of the comment period, City Councilman Tom LaBonge presented a third route designed to quell neighborhood concerns. His option would avoid Burbank’s historic Rancho neighborhood and lessen the impact around his own constituents in Toluca Lake. He and Councilwoman Wendy Greuel also asked that the city extend the comment period to March 31. It’s not the kind of development most residents want in their backyard, but the $150 million sewer line proposed for the San Fernando Valley has to go somewhere. With Los Angeles planning an extensive upgrade to the Valley’s 80-year-old trunk line – a project needed to handle the flushes of future generations – residents know they shouldn’t have a NIMBY attitude about it. But that doesn’t make it easier for those in the path of the proposed route between Studio City and Burbank. “We’ve all been struggling with this,” said Terry Hughes, president of the Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council, whose home sits smack between the two main options. “What are the gases? Are they toxic? How smelly are they?” she said. “What we’re really searching for is clarification or specifics. Maybe we could get a ‘Geological Report for Dummies’ so the common person can understand what the impacts will be.” “It’s a very big deal. It’s important to improve the infrastructure for the future of generations of Angelenos,” LaBonge said. “It’s still not perfect, but it’s better than it was.” In addition to handling future growth, the upgrade is designed to prevent sewage overflows, such as those that plagued Los Angeles during the 1998 El Niño storms. The city is under court order to make $2 billion in sewer improvements citywide to prevent a recurrence. “We need to get to the job as quickly as possible, but if there’s a need for an extended period of time to allow comment, it’s healthy, it’s great,” said Adel Hagekhalil, the Bureau of Sanitation’s division manager for wastewater. “These sewers are important. Without having these sewers in place we will not be able to manage the flow from the Valley. Also, there’s a future risk – if these sewers aren’t built in time, we’re going to have potential impacts, potential odors, potential overflows we want to prevent. “We want to continue to be out of sight, out of mind.” For the past 80 years, the city’s trunk line has snaked from the Valley through Burbank and Glendale to the Eastside and downtown, then through Central Los Angeles and the Westside to the Pacific Ocean. At the time it went online in 1925, it was touted as the world’s longest enclosed sewer. When the Valley boomed in the 1950s, a secondary line was added from Universal City through the Santa Monica Mountains; other lines have been added since. After the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, 700 miles of Valley sewer was upgraded to repair damage, a project that continues today. Over time, the city’s sewage has doubled, from less than 200 million gallons a year in 1950 to 400 million today, with 470 million gallons expected by 2020. The Valley makes up about one-third of that. The city has slowly been rebuilding the entire trunk line, expanding it with an eight-foot-diameter pipe that should handle flow for the next 50 to 100 years. The next step is a $150 million, six-mile line through Griffith Park, then the line through the Southeast Valley. The projects are planned to be under construction by 2010, and are being funded through sewer fees on user bills. “Our sewer systems are like freeways to us,” said City Engineer Gary Lee Moore. “Unfortunately, we can’t have SigAlerts. We can’t say we have sewage floating on the streets. So we’ve got to plan ahead.” But residents worry about a number of issues. First, there’s the four years of construction, with residents forced to cope with crews digging, drilling, trucking and hauling in their neighborhoods. But even more worrisome are the long-term impacts of having a sewer line – and maybe air-treatment facilities – nearby. Residents fear the smell, the gassy fumes, the disclosure they’ll have to make to potential home buyers. In Studio City, the fight has been whether to put the terminus in Woodbridge Park or a Caltrans work yard – a decision that many have called a “no brainer.” Residents won support from Greuel for saving the park. “I understand where no one wants this underneath their soil, but if we’re going to have a sewer of this magnitude, let’s put it where it’s the least disruptive,” said the Burbank mayor, whose city relies on the Los Angeles pipes to help carry its wastewater. City officials insist the long-term problems won’t come from having the sewer as a neighbor – but from not having the new pipe. Hagekhalil explained that when pipes get too full, sewer gases get pushed to the surface, creating the foul smell in the neighborhood. Planned air-treatment facilities – 60-foot-diameter shafts located along the route – are a preventive measure, and will scrub any air that escapes before it gets out to the community. The final proposal is expected to go before the City Council this summer. “This is a project, obviously needed in our city, but we have to do it smart,” said Greuel. “I think the 30-some extra days allows us to hear about some of the other concerns raised.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 lisa.mascaro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO END ITS ‘ATTACK ON THE VULNERABLE’

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has today called on the Government to ‘end its attack on the vulnerable’ by increasing the tax take in order to stop making cuts to public services which so many people rely on.Speaking on the matter today to the Taoiseach at Leaders’ Questions, the Independent TD for Donegal South West pointed out: “It seems the poor are becoming poorer while the rich just keep getting richer.In fact, the gap between the rich and poor in Ireland is widening, with disposable income for the least well-off falling by over 18%, while income has risen by over 4% for the most well-off. Additionally, the top 10% of the population receive almost 14 times more disposable income than the poorest 10%. There is something profoundly wrong in that.” “It wasn’t so long ago that this Government was promising to break away from the old and begin a new politics. Reform, transparency and fairness were the talk of the day. We all know how that worked out.The extravagant pay rates for special advisers are constantly breaching the pay cap, cuts to social welfare payments and indirect taxes have ravaged the country and jobs are as sparse as they ever were, while more and more people are being forced to emigrate to make a life where a living can be made.”“We also have a situation where, as a result of the reduced rate of social welfare payments, young people who are made homeless are left trapped in emergency accommodation because they cannot receive the assistance they need to make a life for themselves. This could be easily resolved and addressing this would actually reduce the cost to the State.This is yet another group which is being failed by this Government as a result of its attack on the vulnerable,” added Pringle. “It’s clear from this that the Government are making very questionable decisions that result in such a lop-sided distribution of wealth, with so many people struggling just to make ends meet.”“We have the fourth lowest tax take as a percentage of GDP in the EU. Increasing this would do much to address the inequity we now face in our society. There is also a great need to equality proof the budget to assess the impact it would have on society’s most vulnerable, and ensure that these people are protected.Changing the ratio of spending cuts to tax increases in the next and subsequent budgets must be achieved. Being a poorer nation should not equate to it to being a more unequal one, but this seems to be how it’s panning out here,” stated Pringle. PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO END ITS ‘ATTACK ON THE VULNERABLE’ was last modified: July 18th, 2012 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:PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO END ITS ‘ATTACK ON THE VULNERABLE’last_img read more
