Napoli-linked Rojo will NOT leave Manchester United in January, insists agent

first_img Manchester United full-back Marcos Rojo 1 Marcos Rojo will not be leaving Manchester United in January, his agent has claimed – despite reports linking him to Napoli.The Argentine defender endured a disruptive pre-season following his exploits at the Copa America and has struggled to hold down a place in United’s starting XI in the opening weeks of the season.However, as a result of Luke Shaw’s horrific injury in Eindhoven last week, Rojo now has the opportunity to feature on a more regular basis and his agent, Carlos Goncalves, has rubbished talk of an exit in January.“There is no need to talk about it,” he told a Naples radio station.“The player is happy at United and has no intention of leaving the club.”last_img read more

West Brom 3-2 Palace: Pardew’s winless run in the Premier League in 2016 goes on

first_imgCrystal Palace’s winless start to 2016 in the Premier League continued as they were beaten 3-2 at West Brom.Tony Pulis got one over on his former side at the Hawthorns as they led 3-0 at the break, following a poor showing from the visitors, who were resurgent in the second period.Craig Gardner put the home side ahead before Craig Dawson and Saido Berahino added to the tally – and it could have been more.Alan Pardew must have got stuck into his men at the interval as they came out fighting and Connor Wickham’s double gave them hope of salvaging a point, but the Baggies held on.The Eagles are yet to win in the league since the turn of the year, despite showing good form in the FA Cup with victories over fellow top-tier sides Southampton, Stoke and Tottenham.It took Albion just 12 minutes to open the scoring as Salomon Rondon’s low shot was parried by Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, fortuitously into the path of Gardner who finished low into the open goal.Gardner soon turned provider as Dawson made it two just eight minutes later when he powerfully headed home the former Villa midfielder’s free-kick from the right-hand side.With 31 minutes on the clock, the Baggies grabbed a third as Berahino – who said this week that he regretted his strike threats earlier in the season – got on the end of Stephane Sessegnon’s pinpoint cross and the former England Under-21 international directed the ball past Henessey with a well-controlled volley.Chris Brunt, who was struck by a coin by his own fans last weekend, was stretchered off after 43 minutes to a standing ovation, with the home fans showing their support for the Northern Irishman, partly in relation to last week’s events.The first half was all one-way traffic and West Brom could have put the game out of sight as Gardner’s set piece was difficult to deal with and it deflected off Palace defender Joel Ward and onto the post.Out-of-sorts Palace made a change at the interval, introducing Yannick Bolasie and they soon looked back in the game.Wickham’s goal came on 48 minutes as he capitalised on dreadful defending by Jonas Olsson, lobbing Ben Foster and finishing into an empty net. That was only Palace’s second goal from a striker in open play all season and it gave them a fighting chance of a comeback.The home side could have folded but they did well to overcome a dominant spell for the visitors, before coming close to extending their lead, first Berahino and then Sessegnon missing chances.The pressure on the Baggies was cranked up as Wickham bagged another with ten minutes left on the clock, the former Sunderland striker driving a stunning half-volley across goal and into the top corner. But it was too little too late for Palace, who drop below West Brom to 14th. Craig Gardner opened the scoring at the Hawthorns after 12 minutes 1last_img read more

Number of U.S. homes in foreclosure doubles in 3rd quarter

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The latest figures amount to one foreclosure filing for every 196 households in the nation and reflect a 33.9percent jump from the 333,731 properties in foreclosure in the second quarter of this year. California led the nation in total foreclosure filings and reported one filing for every 88 households. Nevada and Florida followed. The state had 148,147 filings on 94,772 properties, an increase in filings of 36 percent from the previous quarter and nearly four times the year-ago period. All but five states – Kentucky, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Utah – reported a year-over-year increase in foreclosure filings, which include notices of default, auction sale notices or bank repossessions, RealtyTrac said. The total number of filings reported for the nation in the third quarter reached 635,159, up 99.5 percent from the year-ago quarter and up 30 percent from the second quarter of this year. The number of U.S. homes in foreclosure more than doubled in the third quarter, a surge that analysts said likely will drive already weak prices even lower in the hardest-hit areas. While that amounts to good news for would-be buyers, it spells trouble for builders with projects languishing on the market and for other homeowners desperate to unload property to avoid foreclosure. “A wave of foreclosures is not going to be good for the broader market, and it will contribute to the weakness in pricing,” said Raphael Bostic, associate director of the Lusk Center for Real Estate at the USC. A total of 446,726 homes nationwide were targeted by some sort of foreclosure activity from July to September, up more than 100 percent from 223,233 properties in the year-ago period, Irvine-based RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday. last_img read more

California, Florida foreclosures rising

The Riverside-San Bernardino metro area, located about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, was third, with one filing for every 43 households.Riverside-San Bernardino also accounted for the most foreclosure filings in the U.S. during the quarter, RealtyTrac said.The housing market slump has made it harder for financially strapped homebuyers to sell their homes and avoid missing payments or losing their homes in foreclosure.Increasingly, many borrowers who took out adjustable-rate mortgages and other loans that potentially adjust to higher monthly payments after an initial period also are finding they can’t afford their payments.Once-booming areas, such as California’s Central Valley, where Stockton is located, and the neighboring counties that are home to Riverside and San Bernardino, also are mired now with a glut of new and resale homes. “What happens there is you have your basic economic imbalance between supply and demand,” said Rick Sharga, vice president of marketing for RealtyTrac. “It exacerbates the problem for people who are on the verge of default.”Riverside-San Bernardino had 31,661 filings on 20,664 properties, a jump of more than 267 percent from the year-ago quarter.The California metro areas of Sacramento, Bakersfield and Oakland were also among the top 10 metro areas with the highest foreclosure rates, garnering the sixth, ninth and 10th spots, respectively.Los Angeles had the second-highest number of foreclosure filings during the quarter with 29,501 on 18,043 homes. The city’s foreclosure rate was one filing for every 113 households, or 26th overall.Dave Webb, co-owner of Hudson & Marshall, a foreclosure auction firm based in Dallas, said most of the properties being auctioned by his firm in inland areas of California are investment properties that ended up being repossessed by lenders after the market tanked.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tomatoes … from an apple tree?

first_img• Photo Gallery: Apple or tomato tree SANTA FE SPRINGS – Ray Stanton went out to his back yard in August to see if any apples were growing on his tree. What he found was another fruit. It was red and round in shape, but not the apples Stanton’s been eating. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsInstead, there were about six vines with cherry tomatoes sprouting from them. “I don’t know how this happened,” said Stanton, 89, who planted the tree about 15 years ago. He and his wife, Anzo, 89, pick the ripened tomatoes and use them in salads and other meals. “I made a tomato sandwich last week,” Stanton said as he plucked a tomato from a vine and then popped it into his mouth. The apple tree, which stands about 7 to 8 feet tall, looks more like a bush, with its heavy foliage and very short trunk. The long vines coming from the base and stretching to other areas of the tree make for a strange sight. This is not an uncommon occurrence, according to Cal Poly Pomona’s plant science department. It attributes the phenomenon to a bird or other animal “planting” the tomato seed. About 125 million tons of tomatoes were produced in the world in 2005, with China, the largest producer, accounting for about one-fourth followed by the United States and Turkey, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Although it is botanically a fruit, the tomato is nutritionally categorized as a vegetable. The sprouting of tomatoes on an apple tree is not that far-fetched since in different cultures they are closely identified with one another. The Italian word for tomato is “pomodoro,” which means “golden apple.” Regardless of the cause or the name, the Stantons said they are happy with the result. “I just hope we get some apples too,” Ray Stanton said. Even if they don’t, the couple will continue doing the little bit of gardening they can. The Stantons, who grew up together in North Dakota, married July 14 after losing their spouses a few years ago after 60-plus years of marriage. They use walkers because of different ailments and aren’t able to do much gardening. Even so, they will be taking a Mexican cruise next month to celebrate their anniversary. “We have an anniversary party every month because we don’t know how many years we have left together,” Ray Stanton said. sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EXCLUSIVE: CROOK’S CHEQUES BOUNCE – HORROR AS WE REVEAL SECOND SCAM!

first_imgTHE CLEVER CROOK behind the Donegal investment scam wasn’t so smart after all as his post-dated cheques to clients have bounced – but there are alarming details emerging today of a SECOND scam which has hit poorer investors.And that means Garda fraud squad detectives can nail him for FRAUD.Since donegaldaily.com broke the story on how a smooth-talking criminal encouraged dozens of local people to put millions of euro into a dodgy ‘investment’ scheme a few weeks ago we have been inundated with information from people ripped off by the scam. Now more people have come forward to report that post-dated cheques given to them by the foreign national fraudster and his sales agents have bounced.One Donegal investor told us: “I had put money in a few months back and was promised a great return. In fact I was given a post-dated cheque for the amount I was entitled to and there was a great per centage profit.“But I now feel mugged. I went to lodge the cheque but it bounced. I feel like a complete fool for agreeing to get involved in the first place.”A well-placed legal source revealed: “Knowingly writing a cheque for funds that don’t exist is a criminal offence so that’s good news for the cops.” The crook behind the scheme has fled Donegal with his wife and children. They were said to be good neighbours in the town where they lived.SECOND SCAMThere is a growing fear that dozens of other people have now also been caught out in a second scam run by the shameless and heartless crook.The main scam exposed by donegaldaily.com involved the roly-poly rogue persuading relatively well-off investors to put money into a scheme where he claimed he could buy and sell liquidated stock at huge profit.Some people are owed more than €1M. However the mean-spirited second scam involved some of the less well-off in our society here in Donegal.Many are young couples who had joined what appeared to be a legitimate savings scheme. Some of them could lose their homes as a result of the second scam.Legal restraints prevent us from giving some information on how this second scam operated, but it is now clear many young people saving for their futures will have lost thousands of euro.We hope to be able to shed more light on the scams – and the swindler in the next few days. * Could the people who have more documents on the case please contact us again via info@donegaldaily.com* Do you know something we should investigate?

FARMERS TO BENEFIT FROM MORE RELAXED EU INSPECTIONS

first_imgFine Gael Minister Joe McHugh TD , has said that farmers across Donegal will benefit from a relaxation of farm inspections announced this week by the European Commission.“A new package of implementation measures has been announced by the European Commission which will make like easier for farmers in Donegal. Essentially they can expect a relaxation of the farm inspection regime, which I’ve no doubt will be welcomed by all farmers. Any reduction of bureaucracy in relation to this means more time for farmers to be out on the land doing what they do best- farming.“The full details of the measures are yet to be finalised however the Commission has indicated that the minimum rate of on-the-spot inspections should be reduced from 5% to 1% in certain circumstances, as well as increased flexibility in the procedures for conducting inspections under the integrated administration and control systems (IACS). “The Council of the European Union Agriculture and Fisheries meeting also announced today that increased flexibility for the Rural Development Programme (RDP) will allow Member States such as Ireland amend their Programmes to target specific measures. Minister Coveney has welcomed this saying that the conditions in which we operate are constantly changing and so any increased flexibility for Ireland is welcome.”FARMERS TO BENEFIT FROM MORE RELAXED EU INSPECTIONS was last modified: November 17th, 2015 by John2Share 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)last_img read more

Ex-Barca coach Gerardo Martino quits role as Argentina boss

first_imgGerardo Martino has resigned as Argentina boss in the wake of the nation’s latest Copa America setback and the retirement of star striker Lionel Messi.The 53-year-old former Barcelona head coach, also known as ‘Tata’, led Argentina to the final of last month’s Copa America tournament in the United States, but the Albiceleste lost to Chile.Barca forward Messi subsequently called time on his international career, putting further pressure on Martino to make way for a new technical set-up ahead of the summer Olympic Games.A statement published on the Argentine Football Association’s official website on Tuesday evening read: “The coaching staff of the national team have tendered their resignations today.”Martino succeeded Alejandro Sabella soon after Argentina lost to Germany in the 2014 World Cup final and he won 19 of his 29 matches in charge of the South American country.June’s near miss against Chile in the Copa America final saw history repeat itself as Martino’s men had lost to a Jorge Sampaoli-led Roja team in the 2015 edition of the tournament.Three years of disappointment with the national team led 29-year-old Messi to make himself unavailable for future selection after 113 caps and 55 goals.
