Sunderland keeper Vito Mannone has urged his team-mates to buy into new manager Gus Poyet’s philosophy to drag the club out of trouble. Sunderland, of course, have won only one of their 10 league games to date, and while victory against arch-rivals Newcastle may have given their campaign fresh impetus, that was dented when they went to Hull last weekend and lost by the only goal as Lee Cattermole and Andrea Dossena were sent off. They remain in 19th place in the table and five points adrift of safety, and even the most optimistic member of the red and white faithful would not be banking on that situation changing markedly this weekend. Poyet will be forced to make changes to the side which started at the KC Stadium with Cattermole and Dossena suspended, although Keiren Westwood is fit again after a head injury, leaving his manager with a tough decision with Mannone having performed well as his deputy against the Saints. Poyet said: “He did well. I have got a big decision to make, which is good for me. “I don’t know how good it is for those two, but that’s what I want, a proper, strong, fair, competitive situation between every single player in the squad, and the goalkeepers are the same. “It’s a big decision.” Should Mannone retain his place, he could find himself at the opposite end of the pitch to Romanian Costel Pantilimon, the beneficiary of City and England keeper Joe Hart’s recent travails, after he got the nod for last Saturday’s 7-0 thumping of Norwich. The 25-year-old Italian said: “It’s strange how at times, it all happens in one weekend and a few keepers get an opportunity, but I am really happy I got mine. “But we need to stay together as a team because it’s a big game on Sunday. It’s another great game.” Since he replaced Paolo Di Canio at the helm, the Uruguayan has attempted to instil a belief in his players on the ball to prevent opposing teams from dominating possession. The plan worked to its best effect yet in Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup fourth-round victory over Southampton, and while the Barclays Premier League remains the over-riding priority, the trend is at least positive. Mannone said: “Every one of us has to have character to take charge of the situation and of the ball and try to play this football. “The manager, since he came in, has had a mentality he has tried to install in our heads to play football and keep the ball a little bit more and calm down games, because the more we have the ball, the less we have to defend against the opposition and the less we concede as well.” Whether or not the Black Cats can reproduce the same kind of form this weekend remains to be seen as they face the daunting challenge of attempting to stifle free-scoring Manchester City at the Stadium of Light. Poyet said: “We have been trying to adapt to what I think is better to win football matches. “Especially against the top teams when you play, you need to impose your game as well because if you just play one way, they will beat you. “They are better than you, they have got more quality, they have got better players, so you need to have a style, whatever it is. “Mine and the one I believe in is caring about the ball a lot, never giving it away cheaply, just giving it back to them because you know you will never get it back. “We showed some action on Wednesday, the way that we want to play, and slowly I am sure we are going to get better.” Press Association
Christian Benteke single-handedly dragged Aston Villa out of their nine-game winless streak with his first goal in nine months securing a 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace. Scott Dann needlessly chased a lumped ball out to the wing, deserting his central post – and Benteke picked his pocket. Villa’s only credible threat sauntered infield as far as the edge of Palace’s area without bringing a challenge, because Brede Hangeland inexplicably backed off. The former Norway skipper’s backtracking gifted Benteke time and space to pick his spot, and the Villa forward duly delivered. Palace boss Warnock has picked up the slack admirably since Tony Pulis walked out on the eve of the season: but here was a goal that would never have materialised in the ex-Stoke manager’s tenure. Palace’s profligacy was all that kept the hosts scoreless at the break, Villa relieved Warnock’s men seemed to have no final ball up their sleeves. A trademark half-time rollicking from Warnock shocked Palace into renewed vigour after the break, but even cranking through the gears could not generate a clear-cut chance. The hosts wasted eight gilt-edged attacking platforms between the restart and the hour-mark, underlining both Villa’s fragility and their own offensive shortcomings. Amid the one-way traffic Villa forced a break that ended when Andreas Weimann blasted straight at Speroni. The Palace keeper blocked comfortably with his legs in relief, because had the Villa midfielder would have doubled the lead had he aimed anywhere else on goal. Palace’s all-out assaults grew ever more desperate as time ticked down, the final whistle bringing resounding boos from a home crowd as dissatisfied as boss Warnock. Benteke side-footed the winner in a low-quality Premier League encounter at Selhurst Park to toast his return from a three-match ban for his red card against Tottenham. The Belgian hitman was dubbed “one of the best strikers in Europe” by Villa boss Paul Lambert in midweek: the 23-year-old never had to reach that billing to decide this tie. Press Association Palace slipped to their fifth defeat in eight games, and had only themselves to blame, wasting countless half-chances in a fruitless search for a quality final ball. Villa moved three points ahead of Palace in the table, sucking Neil Warnock’s side further into what could yet become one of the most widely-fought Premier League relegation scraps in years. Benteke handed Villa their first win since a 1-0 victory at Liverpool on September 13, atoning in part for his reckless dismissal against Spurs. So his match-winning strike in south London will have gone some way to repaying both manager and team-mates for that ill-judged clash at Villa Park. Benteke’s calm finish punctuated the otherwise staccato arrangement of Palace’s disjointed first-half attacks. Time and again Zaha broke into the final third, only to slug a sledge-hammer boot through the ball when any deftness of touch would have unlocked Villa’s shaky defence. Palace backed up their 3-1 victory over Liverpool with a reasonable 1-1 draw at Swansea at the weekend, but could not find any spark whatsoever on a chilly night. However against the run of play, Palace could, and should, have stopped Benteke ever laying sight on goal for his winner.
Meanwhile, government officialsat all levels are working to halt transmission of the virus. “It’s funny, it was a similarsituation with the SARS virus,” noted Ted Friedli, owner of Excel Travel in LongBranch. One client who contacted himwith concerns about the virus has plans to travel to China in 2022. Like other health care professionals in the state, Bayshore is relying on updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Jersey Department of Public Health to advise its customers. So, what can people do to avoidcontracting NcoV? “There could be so many morediseases between now and then,” he said. Friedli advised him to remaincalm and wait things out. Travel to China and the FarEast has grown increasingly popular in recent years, Friedli said. The best defense is prevention,health experts say: Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing, use a tissueor, in a pinch, your sleeve to cough or sneeze into rather than your hands. Tryto avoid touching your face. The majority of the calls fall into the category of, “Am I at risk?” he said. That includes people who have recently traveled to or from China, people planning to travel there individually or as members of international exchange programs, and people who have returned from China with children who will be re-entering school in New Jersey. Those cases have been confirmedin Washington, California, Arizona and Illinois, the CDC reported. With the height of the flu season upon us, business at Bayshore Pharmacy in Atlantic Highlands has been brisk. Meanwhile, New JerseyCongressman Frank Pallone (D-6), who chairs the House of Representatives Energyand Commerce Committee, which oversees public health and quarantine, isadvising Americans to rely on the CDC and other reliable sources for updatesrather than social media. “The information that I have right now is that weshouldn’t panic,” he said during an appearance on MSNBC last Tuesday. “There’sa lot of misinformation out there.” “At this time, there are more than 6,000 confirmed cases. The majority of the cases are in China, which has experienced at least 132 deaths. There are 92 confirmed cases outside of China, with five cases in the United States.” While those numbers appear alarming, it helps to keep in mind that more than 11 million people reside in the epicenter of the virus outbreak in the city of Wuhan. British Airways and a fewsmaller airlines have suspended all flights to China and United Airlines hasreduced its service there. The sneezing and coughing most peopleare doing around the Two River area these days are not caused by NcoV but insteadrelated to the perennial winter woes that come with the common cold and flu. The pharmacy did experience a bit of a run on face masks this week but, Stryker said, their effectiveness in blocking an individual from contracting the virus isn’t great because the masks aren’t capable of preventing the inhalation of the virus. They’re more valuable in preventing someone who is already sick from spreading germs through sneezing and coughing. Earlier this week, U.S. Sens.Bob Menendez and Cory Booker of New Jersey called for NcoV passenger screeningsto be instituted at Newark Liberty International Airport, the fifth busiest airportin the nation. To combat a wave of misinformation being generated as the word spreads, the New Jersey Department of Health has established a hotline in cooperation with the NJ Poison Control Center to answer residents’ questions about the new virus and allay unnecessary fears. “The biggest concern right nowis that we don’t really know what this coronavirus is…we need to know moreabout the virus itself, how it’s transmitted, what is its impact and there’snot a lot of information out there right now.” Those with upcomingreservations who are facing a change of plan and a possible loss of theirvacation dollars, Friedli said, have the option to cancel, postpone or changetheir plans and some travel providers will be generous in helping them make thebest choice with the least amount of financial pain. But, Friedli said, “Thebiggest lesson is to do something in advance: Take out some travel insurance.There are policies you can buy that allow you to cancel for any reasonwhatsoever.” “We’ve been getting quite a fewquestions,” Stryker said. “The news has it pretty whipped up.” “Media and the government blowthese things out of proportion,” Friedli says. “There’s so many other thingsthat we could worry about, like getting hit by a car on the Garden StateParkway.” According to Jerry M. Zuckerman, M.D., vice president of infection prevention and control at Hackensack Meridian Health, coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which are thought to cause up to 30 percent of common cold cases. Hackensack Meridian encompasses nine medical centers around the state, including Riverview in Red Bank and Bayshore in Holmdel. But along with the chills,fever, coughs and runny noses that accompany the flu, some customers are sufferingfrom worries about contracting the novel coronavirus (NcoV), said pharmacistRichard Stryker. Symptoms of NcoV are similar to the flu but can swiftlyprogress to more serious complications like pneumonia. Newark has since been added tothe list of airports conducting enhanced screenings. While the risk of contractingthe NcoV virus here in the U.S. is low, the threat remains serious, Zuckermanstressed. “Although the risk to thepublic remains low, we understand that residents have questions about this newvirus,” New Jersey Department of Health commissioner Judith Persichilli notedin a press release. “This hotline provides factual information to alleviatefear and dispel rumors.” The hotline is part of a wide-reaching effort by the medical and scientific communities to reassure the public while taking steps to identify and treat any patients who contract NcoV. In an effort to halt thetransmission of the virus, Chinese officials have instituted a quarantine inWuhan, the epicenter of the virus. For Americans set to travel toChina soon for business or vacation, the threat of NcoV very likely means achange in plans. By Eileen Moon | Published Jan. 30, 2020 “Certain strains like SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), whichappeared in 2002, and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), which appearedin 2012 and now the 2019 novel coronavirus can cause more serious illness,”Zuckerman said. No cases of NcoV have been identified in any of Hackensack Meridian’sfacilities, Zuckerman said. Bruce Ruck, managing director of the NJ Poison Control Center at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, said that his office has received more than 100 calls about the corona virus in the last 24 hours. Nevertheless, concern aboutcontracting the new virus is rising. The five cases of NcoVidentified in the United States as of Jan. 29 have occurred in patients who hadrecently been in China. Fortunately, the risk ofcontracting the new virus first identified in Wuhan, China in December is low. In Monmouth County, FreeholderDeputy Director Sue Kiley, liaison to the county health and human servicesdepartment, said the county is maintaining close contact with area hospitalsand is prepared to respond should the virus appear. Right now, Kiley said, it’snot an issue. “Obviously, we’re watching it very closely.” Nevertheless, the appearance ofNcoV in our increasingly global community has been ramping up fears on socialmedia. “Basically, all those things your mother told you,” said Stryker, the pharmacist.
Goal scorers included Kaliana Forte, Maddy Hopkins, Lennox Lockhurst and Cayenne Caney. Keeper Faith Stefiuk was outstanding in goal, conceded only one marker throughout the entire tournament.”It was a true team effort, everyone did their part,” said coach Heath Lockhurst.”They executed our game plan perfectly. The girls pushed through injuries and kept their composure when the pressure was on.”The squad now turns its attention to the indoor season to prepare for the 2018 campaign which begins early next year. The Nelson Selects concluded the 2017 Rep Soccer season with a gold medal performance at the Eye of the Storm Girl’s Youth Soccer Tournament in Castlegar.The Selects won the Girl’s U14-15 Division undefeated at 2-0-2 against Vernon United, Columbia Valley, and both KSYSA U14 and KSYSA U15.

New Delhi: The officer held responsible for the accidental shooting down of a military helicopter at the height of India-Pakistan tension in February will be charged by the Indian Air Force (IAF) for culpable homicide not amounting to murder along with three others, according to reports. The IAF is yet to officially acknowledge reasons for the Mi-17 helicopter’s crash on February 27, the day Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter jets attempted to cross the Line of Control (LoC). But reports suggest that it was shot down in a friendly fire by IAF’s own air defence missile. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework The Court of Inquiry into the incident killing all six onboard is yet to be completed. The IAF maintains that the investigation was still going on but multiple reports indicate that there was a lapse in following the Standard Operating Procedures. A report said that the officer commanding the Srinagar air base, where the crash took place, has been removed. The officer who was presiding over operations will face charges of culpable homicide, a criminal offence, according to another report. The incident had occurred in Jammu and Kashmir in the melee when IAF jets had engaged intruding PAF fighters over the LoC a day after air strike on terrorist camp in Pakistan’s Balakot.
