He’s such a unique player because of the quickness he plays with, so I was pleased to see that. We held him the week prior to heal and get right. I was pleased he got the work in. It was totally by design. We were going to give him half his normal reps on Wednesday and Thursday and let him do the normal Friday, and that’s how we laid out the week for him. It went exactly like we thought.”“I just know his toughness and strength is so great,” Quinn said earlier this week. “The good thing is, I know he’s feeling better than he did in the NFC Championship Game. But yeah, I’m concerned. I’m not panicked, but I’m concerned.”“This game, because of multiple fronts by New England, requires a lot of prep work by the center,” Quinn said. “Identifying this look, this front, this player’s positioning, [Mack and Garland] spend a lot of time in the film room together normally … and I would say it’s been even more these two weeks because this opponent requires even more.”Mack will join and exclusive list of players that have played and excelled while being injured in the big game.

Tinta Merah Tercoreng di Laporan Keuangan Uber Kuartal Kedua

first_imgDilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman wsj.com (13/8/2019), CEO Uber Dara Khosrawshahi mengatakan pihaknya bahkan berpikir tahun 2019 menjadi puncak investasi mereka. Selain itu juga dirinya ingin memastikan bahwa pertumbuhan Uber adalah pertubuhan yang sehat.“Strategi platform kami terus memberikan hasil yang kuat, dengan Trips naik 35 persen dan Pemesanan Bruto naik 37 persen dalam mata uang konstan, dibandingkan dengan kuartal kedua tahun lalu. Pada bulan Juli, platform Uber mencapai lebih dari 100 juta Konsumen Aktif Bulanan untuk pertama kalinya, karena kami menjadi bagian yang lebih dan lebih integral dari kehidupan sehari-hari di kota-kota di seluruh dunia,” ujar Dara.Kerugian Uber kuartal ini jauh melebihi estimasi analis dan membuat banyak pihak meragukan kemampuan Uber mencetak laba karena kebijakan mereka yang gencar dalam membakar uang. Perusahaan harus konsisten memberikan insentif dan diskon tarif untuk menarik penumpang dan driver yang menghadapi persaingan.Bahkan karena adanya kerugian ini, kabarnya Uber membatalkan interview beberapa posisi dan calon karyawan baru karena adanya kebijakan menghentikan perekrutan. Bulan Juli silam, Uber juga memangkas ratusan karyawannya di bidang marketing. Pemutusan Hubungan Kerja (PHK) itu dilakukan secara global.Juni lalu Dara Khosrawshahi menggeser chief operating officer dan chief marketing officer dan memecat 400 staf pemasaran. Dara Khosrawshahi mengatakan perang diskon tarif telah mereda namun perusahaan masih harus bersaing ketat dalam bisnis pengiriman makanan dan berencana untuk mengucurkan investasi secara agresif pada sektor ini.Baca juga: Di 2020, Uber dan Volvo Siap Uji Mobil Otonom Generasi Ketiga“Banyak dari tim kita terlampau besar, yang menciptakan overlappping, keputusan tidak jelas dan bisa berujung pada hasil medioker,” cetus Dara.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Sumber: businesstimes.com.sg Tinta merah terlihat pada laporan pendapatan kuartal kedua Uber sebagai raksasa ride hailing.

Cotterill Keen To Avoid Role Reversal At Orient

first_imgTwelve months ago Bristol City travelled to Leyton Orient in the Sky Bet League One relegation zone, whilst the hosts were targeting three points to hit the divisional summit.Instead the form book was thrown upside down as goals from Sam Baldock, Tyrone Barnett and Aden Flint fired Cotterill’s strugglers to a 3-1 victory.This time around the roles are reversed, with City eight points clear at the top and Orient one adrift of safety.“I remember what we were like going into the game and I remember the dressing room afterwards, but this is a completely new season now,” the manager told Bristol City Player.“We’ve done okay this season and it’s a different scenario we go there with, but we go there with the same aim, which is to get three points.“Orient were at the top of the table and had a really good season. They ended up in the play-offs but they were right up there when we went there.”Cotterill pointed to recent topsy-turvy results up and down the Football League, highlighting the need for his players to display “plenty of fight” to come through a sequence of three consecutive away games unscathed, starting tonight in East London.“It’s a very difficult league and it’s the same all across England because of the honesty that’s around. It’s very difficult to predict results,” he continued.“You can look at a lot of the other leagues – Burton Albion were beaten at home in League Two, Bournemouth drew at home in the Championship and Derby and Middlesbrough both lost.“This time of year throws up some really funny results and we’ve got to be very mindful of that.“It’s up to us to make sure we go there and play as much football as the pitch will allow us and fight for everything.“That’s what we’ve got to make sure of over the next few games – there’s got to be plenty of fight in us.”last_img read more

Six players set for international duty next week

October 10th. Crucially for City, the defender is only due back in England 24 hours before City’s next match, at home to Burton Albion on Friday, October 13th.The winner over two legs will then face a final doubleheader qualifier against the fourth placed team from the CONCACAF group, which is likely to be one of either Panama, USA or Honduras.O’Dowda’s Ireland face Moldova in Dublin on Friday, October 6th, before a huge make-or-break clash with Wales in Cardiff three days later.Magnusson’s Iceland face a tough trip to Turkey on October 6th, before a home game with Kosovo on October 9th.

No. 1 seed Villanova rolls to 93-52 win over Lafayette

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP) — Thirty years after an improbable run to a stunning national championship, Villanova is going to try it this time around as a prohibitive favorite to reach the Final Four.With a romp in the opening act, the Wildcats showed they’re up to the task of headlining on the way to Indianapolis.Without a hint of doubt, the Wildcats flexed their top-seeded muscle and showed why President Barack Obama picked them to reach the NCAA Tournament title game, thumping Lafayette 93-52 on Thursday night.Dylan Ennis scored 16 points and helped Villanova (33-2) win its 16th straight game. They’ll go for 17 straight when they play Saturday against No. 8 seed North Carolina State, which rallied from 16 down to stun LSU in the final seconds.“I could tell our guys were fired up for this game because it was the NCAA Tournament,” coach Jay Wright said. “They weren’t thinking seed. They weren’t thinking we could be the first 1-16 to (lose). They don’t think about that stuff. Coaches do.”He had no reason to worry in Pittsburgh.The Wildcats shot close to 70 percent for most of the game and led by as many as 45 points. They made 11 of 22 from 3-point range and shot 63 percent overall from the floor.Ennis opened the game with a 3 and the Wildcats simply rolled from there. Kris Jenkins hit consecutive 3s for a 14-point lead, part of a 6-of-12 effort from long range in the first half.While the Wildcats drained ’em from long range, they shut down Lafayette’s potent 3-point game. The Leopards were second nationally in 3-point shooting (41 percent), and the thought was, if the Leopards got hot from 3, they could give the Wildcats a game.Not a chance.The Leopards missed six of their first seven 3s and were just 2 of 9 in the first half. Joey Ptasinski led the Leopards with 72 3-pointers at 46 percent shooting. He missed all three attempts.“We wanted to take them off the 3-point line and make them put it on the floor and work to our advantage,” guard Darrun Hilliard said.Dan Trist led the Patriot League champion Leopards (20-13) with 18 points. The Leopards missed 14 of 18 3s.The Leopards seemingly would have had to make all their shots to keep pace with the Big East champion Wildcats.“I think playing the No. 2 team in the nation, we were a little nervous,” forward Seth Hinrichs said.The Leopards never had a chance to settle their nerves. Villanova used a 13-0 run to lead 34-13. When Big East co-player of the year Ryan Arcidiacono hit a 3 early in the second half for a 58-30 lead, Villanova was shooting 67 percent (24 of 34) and 54 percent on 3s (7 of 13).Ennis may have led the Wildcats in scoring, but everyone assisted in stuffing the stat sheet. All five starters reached double digits, and Jenkins had 10 off the bench.“That’s just how we play. We’re a good offensive team and we share the ball,” big man Daniel Ochefu said. “We worked on that all year in practice and it wasn’t any different this game.”The Wildcats finished No. 2 in the AP Top 25 and were a trendy pick to reach the Final Four for the first time since 2009. They won the Big East regular-season and tournament titles in the same season for the first time in program history. They hold a No. 1 seed for the second time in history. And, they have gone two months without a loss, putting them in the mix with Kentucky and Arizona as the best of all the Wildcats.Villanova won its first Big East Tournament championship in 20 years and would like to mark another milestone with a championship — 30 years since it upset Georgetown to win the 1985 national championship.Obama picked the Wildcats to reach the national championship game and lose to Kentucky.___TIP-INSLafayette: Coach Fran O’Hanlon was once one of Villanova’s biggest stars. He averaged 13.1 points and was co-captain of the 1969-70 team that won two NCAA Tournament games. O’Hanlon still holds the Villanova record for assists in a game, 16 vs. Toledo on Feb. 24, 1970. His Wildcats teams went 62-21 over his three seasons under coach Jack Kraft. O’Hanlon was inducted into the Villanova Hall of Fame in 1972.Villanova: The Wildcats have not advanced past the first weekend since 2009. They have just two NCAA Tournament wins and missed the tourney once during that span. … The Wildcats committed only eight turnovers, just three in a dominant first half.THIS HURTSBecause of what O’Hanlon means to the Villanova program, Wright had a tough time finding pure joy in victory. He switched to zone late in the game and emptied his bench so that 12 Wildcats played. “We tried to do what we could to be classy about it,” Wright said.UP NEXTLafayette: Season finished.Villanova: Will play N.C. State on Saturday at the Consol Center.last_img read more

Southampton player reveals summer offers, but ‘really wanted to stay’ and…

first_imgThe player was linked with a move back to Serie A during the last transfer window.Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Southampton player was asked about interest from other clubs: “I would have evaluated better the offers that my agent Silvio Pagliari had submitted to me. But I really wanted to stay in the Premier. I did not want to give up.”When Gabbiadini joined Southampton in January 2017 there were promising signs. The player scored on his debut against West Ham, and then followed this up with two goals in the EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester United.However, the goals dried up last season, and the Italy international found the net just 5 times in 28 Premier League games.The Southampton player was linked with the likes of Bologna and Lazio during the last window, but it seems he wants to prove himself in the English top flight.Gabbiadini made his first league start of the season at the weekend in his side’s defeat to Chelsea.NDby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

The 2014 Fremont squad also finished second in the state.The 2019 Packers return their five top runners from last year’s squad. The 2015 Fremont team returned four of five runners, and ended up winning a state championship.“We’re hoping to see the same progression,” said Fremont head coach Cliff Somers. “We’re hoping to be better than last year, just like we were in 2015 after the 2014 runner-up season.”The returnees in 2019, in order of their performance at the 2018 Division 2 state finals, are junior Nathan Walker, who finished fifth overall, followed by junior Ben Paige (18th), junior Colton Best (26th), sophomore Conor Somers (42nd), and junior Adam Ward (43rd).While all those runners did very well for themselves last season, the Packers’ mindset is team-before-individual, because team success is what the Fremont cross country team is known for.Nathan Walker. who finished fifth in the state as a sophomore in 2018.Walker is a great example. After finishing fifth in the state last season, he could easily be focused on moving up a few notches and becoming Michigan’s top runner in Division 2. But he said he won’t be happy unless the entire team reaches its potential.“It’s definitely a goal that I’ve thought about,” Walker said about the idea of winning an individual state title. “But the team comes first. We want to be carrying on a tradition and making the city and alumni proud.”The tradition that Walker referred to dates back to 1976, when the Fremont boys won their first of eight cross country state championships.“We look at what (past teams) did to be successful and try to emulate that,” Walker said.If the team does have success, Coach Somers believes Walker’s leadership will be a key component.“I would say he’s been a lot more vocal as a junior,” Somers said. “He definitely led by example in the last two years, but he’s been more vocal this year at camp.”According to Somers, Walker believes the team has the potential to have a great season if his teammates can consistently push and challenge him. After all, he’s one of the best in the state. If the other Packers reach that level, who knows how good they can be as a group?“He sat the guys down and said “Listen, I’m not untouchable,” Somers said. “You need to come out and work hard to chase me down. If I’m having a bad race or workout, pass me by. It’ll make the team better.“In his mind, if he runs his best and has four or five guys on our team with him, we’d be untouchable. He wants his teammates to be right up there with him. He doesn’t need to be all about himself.” Displayed poorly Share (975) Fox Sports Go Other Inappropriate / Offensive Bestseller Other $0.00 Not relevant Other $22.99 Displayed poorly Displayed poorly (832) Displayed poorly Mail Report a problem This item is… DEAL OF THE DAY × Bestseller Add Comments (Max 320 characters) Other $14.99 Thank you!
