The former Spain international joins Roma on a three-year contract until June 2023.“I’m delighted to be here at Roma,” Pedro told the club’s official website. “I’m excited for this challenge and to compete to achieve our targets over the coming seasons.“I want to thank the fans for the welcome they’ve given me. I hope to make them happy.”Tags: ChelseaPedro RodriguezRoma
“We can focus on our targets one at a time, and this could be an advantage for us,” he said.“But we’ll only know once we’re out on the pitch because this is a very odd situation. After such a long break we’ve not even been able to play proper matches in training.”Sarri is reportedly wary of risking players who are not 100 percent fit, and will leave out Gonzalo Higuain for his starting line-up.However with Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa likely to start, goals should not be a problem.Whoever comes out on top will face either Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan or Napoli, who hold a 1-0 lead ahead of Saturday’s second leg in Naples.The cup is Napoli’s best chance of European football next season following a tumultuous campaign that has featured dressing room disputes and the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.Inter are off the pace in the title race and in search of their first trophy since winning the cup in 2011.Fixtures (pending government approval) (All times GMT)Semi-final, second legsFridayJuventus v AC Milan (2000) (first leg 1-1)SaturdayNapoli v Inter Milan (2000) (first leg 1-0) Cristiano Ronaldo’s late first-leg penalty gives Juventus the advantage going into Friday’s second leg of the cup semi-finalRome, Italy | AFP | This week’s Italian Cup semi-final, second leg matches were set to bring football back to a nation emerging from the coronavirus crisis, but with two days until the scheduled kick-off the two matches are still awaiting government approval.Juventus’ home clash with AC Milan on Friday was supposed be the first competitive match played in Italy since the country became Europe’s COVID-19 epicentre, and the start of what the football authorities hope will be a return to normality.More than 34,000 people on the peninsula have died because of the virus since the start of the crisis, with the vast majority in northern regions like Piedmont and Lombardy which host Juve and Milan.However, although the virus still persists, Italy began to gradually emerge from a stringent lockdown last month and has been slowly moving back towards regular life since, with the return of football pitched as the latest sign that the worst should be over.Public broadcaster RAI has already announced its coverage of the two last four encounters, with Napoli v Inter Milan scheduled for Saturday.However. while Health Minister Roberto Speranza on Wednesday confirmed the dates for the semis and the June 17 final in Rome, he only said that the government was “leaning towards authorising” the last three matches of the competition.Speranza’s comments at the Italian Senate come just as it appeared that weeks of squabbling between Italy’s football authorities and the government had been left behind, with what will likely be a large, sport-starved TV audience ready for the two matches behind closed doors.Should, as expected, Friday’s match take place fans will see a tie delicately poised at 1-1 following February’s entertaining first leg at the San Siro, which saw the ‘Rossoneri’ leading until Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stoppage time penalty to take a draw and an away goal back to Turin.– ‘Very odd situation’ –Milan will be without injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had sparked the seven-time European champions into life after returning in December, as they attempt to beat Juve in Turin for the first time since 2011.Forward Samu Castillejo, who said he was robbed at gunpoint in Milan on Tuesday, and defender Theo Hernandez are suspended.Milan coach Stefano Pioli will likely point to Ante Rebic, who had scored seven goals in nine games before football succumbed to the virus, as the goal threat.They will be helped by Wednesday’s ruling which eliminates extra-time in the event of deadlock after 90 minutes for both last-four second legs and next week’s final.The cup is more of a priority for fallen giants Milan, whose last major honour came nine years ago, than for Juventus, who later this month resume a tight Serie A title tussle with Lazio.However Juve coach Maurizio Sarri told Sky on Wednesday that Juve were “lucky” to have the cup, Serie A and Champions League seasons played at separate intervals as they chase European glory to go with their domestic dominance.

UNSTOPPABLE—Miami Dolphins’ Benny Sapp (27) tries to stop Pittsburgh’s Hines Ward (86) from catching a pass during the first half in Miami, Oct. 24. (AP PhotoWilfredo Lee) Both teams shut down the run and were able to control the air attack. Rashard Mendenhall was held to just 37 yards on 15 carries while the two-headed running attack of the Dolphins did not do much better. Ricky Williams had 48 yards on 11 carries and Ronnie Brown had only 14 yards on 9 carries.After giving Miami 6 points at the beginning of the game with two turnovers, the Steelers finally got down to business and jumped off to a sizable lead before the Dolphins came roaring back behind the ever improving young quarterback Chad Henne who was 23 of 36 for 257 yards and one touchdown. After a solid game in the red zone last week, the Steelers fell back into their old ways of settling for three Jeff Reed field goals instead of touchdowns.Once again, as they did much of last season, the Steelers marched down the field during the final minutes of the game to pull what was a sure defeat into a victory.With Pittsburgh trailing 20-19 and facing third-and-goal at the Miami 2, Roethlisberger fumbled the ball as he dove across the goal line on a quarterback draw. The play was ruled a touchdown as both teams scrambled for the loose ball in the end zone. After a replay review, referee announced that Roethlisberger had fumbled before scoring. But the official said his crew had no clear evidence as to which team recovered the ball, so the Steelers were awarded possession at the half-yard line. Jeff Reed then made an 18-yard kick on the next play with 2:30 left, and the Steelers escaped with the win.Roethlisberger had a decent game, going 19 for 27 for 302 yards and two touchdowns, but three fumbles—two that were just dumb, instead of just taking the sack—almost gave the game to the Dolphins. Hines Ward had an outstanding game catching 7 passes for 131 yards which included a 21-yard touchdown pass, but for some reason after Wallace ran past all defenders for a 53-yard touchdown to give the Steelers the early lead, Roethlisberger only went back to him once for no gain.* * *In New Orleans, David Bowen returned two of Drew Brees’ four interceptions for touchdowns, and the Browns stunned the defending Super Bowl champions 30-17.Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy passed for just 74 yards, but got his first win as an NFL starter, a desperately needed one for the struggling Browns (2-5). Scott Fujita and Sheldon Brown also had interceptions for the Browns. Brees was sacked three times, once by Fujita, who was a defensive leader for the Saints last season.The Saints (4-3) trailed all game and pulled no closer in the second half than 20-10.Still without Reggie Bush, who’s out with an injury, Brees put the ball up 55 times, completing 37 passes for 356 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough to overcome four interceptions. The Browns, with a very solid defense, held the Saints running game in check. Chris Ivory had only 48 yards on 15 carries.The Steelers defense, who struggled a little against the Dolphins’ passing attack, will have some serious problems trying to contain Marques Colston, who had 10 catches for 112 yards and Ladell Betts with 8 catches for 88 yards.Brees, who was intercepted 11 times last season, has thrown 10 picks in 2010.“Whenever you throw a pick, you’re going to be upset. …Four interceptions are hard to swallow,” Brees said. “I think we are all doing a little soul searching. We know how good we can be. Obviously, we aren’t playing that way right now.”The Saints outgained Cleveland 394-210, but the Browns made big plays on defense and special teams in building a 20-3 halftime lead that had the crowd booing the defending Super Bowl champions as they went to the locker room.The Steelers will have to face one of the most potent passing attacks in the game without defensive end Aaron Smith, who may be out for the season with an injury. Smith missed 11 games last season. The Steelers pulled off a miracle 23-22 win over the Miami Dolphins Sunday to stay in a three-way tie for the best record in the NFL—5-1—and now must get ready for the struggling Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints who are coming off an upset 30-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsNow the fun begins.The Kootenay Ice kick off the 2011-12 B.C. Major Midget Hockey League season with plenty of optimism as the interior based squad heads to Vancouver Island for a two-game set Saturday and Sunday in Nanaimo against the North Island Silvertips.And new head coach Mario DiBella isn’t shy about what his goal is for this new group of 15-17-year-old midget hockey players.“We are looking to make the playoffs for the first time in Ice history,” stated the veteran bench boss.That goal will not be easy to achieve after the Ice, under the coach last season of Simon Wheeldon, lost the likes of 18-goal scorer Jesse Knowler of Castlegar and Nelson’s Dryden Hunt to the Western Hockey League and sniper Luke Bertolucci to the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL.However, DiBella believes he has the players ready to fill the skates of the rookie Tier I hockey players.“We have Jake Lucchini (Trail), Darren Medeiros (Castlegar) and Quinn Klimchuk (Castlegar) who are equally as talented as the (Hunt, Knowler and Bertolucci),” DiBella said of his three second-year players.“We’ve also added Mitch Foyle (Fruitvale), Jeremy McGregor (Christina Lake) and Brandon Savaia (Grand Forks) as talented first years that can put the busier in the basket.”The Ice has three grads from the Nelson Minor Hockey Association in Colton Dachwitz, Greyson Reitmeier and late edition Brandon Sookro.Cole Arcuri, thought to be a lock to make the Ice at defence, decided to return to the Okanagan Hockey Association.After the Island trip, the Ice are idle until opening the home part of the season October 8-9 at the NDCC Arena against Okanagan Rockets.The home dates will shift around rinks in the West Kootenay, with stops in Castlegar, Trail and Grand Forks.DiBella likes the idea of showcasing the players throughout the region.“I feel it’s good for the program and it provides home games where the players live,” said DiBella, who has former Nelson Leaf assistant coach Sean Dooley with him behind the Ice bench.The B.CMMHL was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds the opportunity to play at a high level within their age group.Each year all Major Midget League teams have the opportunity to compete for the National Midget Championship.Kootenay finished the 2010-11 season in 10th spot with a 8-25-7 record with the Vancouver Northwest Giants winning the BCMMHL [email protected]
The over 100-year-old Gole Market, a unique heritage building constructed as Patna’s first planned municipal market, has been demolished by local authorities as part of a Smart City project. The demolition work began on Friday and by Sunday the historic landmark, located in the heart of Bihar’s capital and endowed with beautiful red-tiled roof, was reduced to a skeletal shell.“The Gole Market was demolished as part of a major redevelopment project of the railway station area under the Smart City initiative. Other markets lining the streets are also being knocked down as part of the mega project,” Patna Municipal Commissioner Anupam Kumar Suman told PTI. As part of this Smart City project, the now-dismantled Gole Market, located near Patna Junction, will make way for a seven-storeyed commercial complex and a modern municipal market along with a vending zone will come up in the area adjoining the Station Road, he said. Popularly known as Gole Market, among the local people, it was Patna’s first planned municipal market designed by architect Joseph Fearis Munnings while he was planning the layout of the ‘New Capital’ city of colonial Patna after the creation of the new province of Bihar and Orissa in 1912. Despite the historical value of the building, the demolition drew feeble protest from citizens of the city, but many people in Patna are angered by the move. “This is just madness. It was a historical building and should have been preserved. But, instead of restoring and reusing it as a cafe or something, the corporation razed it,” said city-based researcher and author Arun Singh.“One by one the local government is knocking down heritage buildings in the city. This is an attempt to erase the colonial history of Patna in the name of development,” he alleged. In December last year, the 133-year-old Anjuman Islamia Hall, perhaps the first public hall of Patna, was demolished to make way for a modern complex. The heritage market had faced decades of neglect and its occupant shopkeepers had been feeling the shadow of the wrecking ball for years as local authorities had planned a redevelopment project much earlier, a local shopkeeper, who did not wish to be named, said. “My grandfather had a meat shop in it during the British time, and elite of the city would come in their cars to buy meat, fish, chicken, eggs, grocery and milk. It should have been preserved,” he said. City-based 84-year-old architect and INTACH Patna Chapter Convener J.K. Lall also expressed shock and anger over the demolition of Gole Market.“It was a unique single-storeyed building with a raised central hexagonal core topped with elegant red-tiled roof and two flanks came out of it and again it was topped with red tiles of the colonial-era Burn & Co. It was a perfect building and a perfect setting for a heritage cafe,” he told PTI.“Smart City also means preserving our architectural legacy and not just building new ones,” he said. PMC Commissioner Suman, when asked why the building was demolished, said, the Gole Market was “coming in the middle” of the layout of the Smart City project plan.“There were suggestions made to us by a few heritage lovers to preserve the building and reuse it as a cafe. We tried but the market structure was coming in the way of the plan. So, we had no option left but to knock it down,” he said.“Also, besides the fact that it was designed 100 years ago by Munnings as the first municipal market, there was not much heritage value to it. And, sometimes we have to lose something old to build a new, better future,” the municipal commissioner said. However, the iron shell of the building and whatever can be salvaged will be stored and later reused in a new gazebo at the site, Suman said. “That gazebo will be built with new material and old material from the dismantled Gole Market. We are trying to look into our archives to know about the history of the building, which along with old pictures would be displayed there, so that people will know there was a Gole Market here,” he said. Retired bureaucrat R.N. Dash, who served as the district magistrate of Patna from 1972-74 and Divisional Commissioner from 1983-85, said the demolition was a “wrong move” and that restoration and proper rehabilitation of local shopkeepers should have been planned instead. “The overall master plan should have ensured the preservation of the market and other heritage buildings, and Smart City project should have factored that in. Converting it into a cafe was a good idea and people coming to these complexes would have visited too, so it was a win-win situation,” he said. Ironically, Gole Market was also listed as a heritage building in a 2008 Bihar goverment publication — Patna: A Monumental History. Mr. Singh, whose book Patna – Khoya Hua Shahar came out early this year, talks about the history and glory days of this market, located in what is termed officially as the New Market area, falling between the railway station rotary and the Patna GPO roundabout. “In its heydays, it had a rose garden around it and six routes leading to it from the streets around it.“British people including European women would visit there as would the Indians in their cars. Instead of restoring old charm, as done world over, Patna is wilfully destroying its own heritage,” he rued.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 25, 2017 – Grand Turk – The Ministry of Home Affairs late today confirmed that there is now a full investigation launched into the alleged sexual assault of a prison warden and that female guard has been given leave as she recuperates from the attack.Police today also confirmed the incident around 2:30 pm on Monday, where the prison officer was punched in the mouth. Their report also said the inmate, who was stopped and beaten by other inmates was carried away from the prison in a apparent unconscious state.The Ministry is seemingly unprepared to discuss procedure to protect female guards or offer clarity as to why the Cockburn Town Medical Center could not accommodate both reportedly injured individuals simultaneously. The family revealed that the officer was forced to wait at the Police Station for hours, being interviewed and was reportedly told that she could not attend doctor while the inmate was being treated at the hospital.Relatives reported that they considered this move to be further insult to injury of their already traumatized loved one. What the Ministry was ready to say is that the officer has been given leave of absence, offered medical care and counseling.Further comments, said the media release from Home Affairs, would come at the conclusion of the probe.#MagneticMedianews#femaleguardattackedinGTprison#inmatesrescueprisonguardfromattack Related Items:#femaleguardattackedinGTprison, #inmatesrescueprisonguardfromattack, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
