Juventus said to want Torres as R’s are linked with youngster

first_imgJuventus want to sign Fernando Torres and Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.The Italian giants are reportedly likely to offer £30m for Torres, which is well below Chelsea’s valuation of the striker.Torres’ future is in doubt.Torres has struggled since his £50m move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool, leading to speculation that the Blues may sell him at the end of the season.The Daily Mail say Roman Abramovich will present his new manager with a list of potential star signings and tell him to take his pick.Chelsea’s billionaire owner has apparently pinpointed four key roles – a centre forward, two full-backs and an attacking midfielder – as the priorities for a summer spending spree.A fresh bid for Tottenham’s Luka Modric is said to be an option, while other targets include Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, Napoli’s Ezequiel Lavezzi and Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen.Meanwhile, the Mail suggest QPR have had a bid for teenage midfielder Alex Pritchard rejected by Tottenham.The 18-year-old’s contract expires this summer and it is claimed that several Premier League clubs are interested in signing him. Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Groves crushed by Froch in Wembley clash

first_imgGeorge Groves’ second attempt to become world champion ended in a crushing loss to Carl Froch, who flattened him in the eighth round of their rematch at Wembley.The Hammersmith man, controversially stopped in round nine after dominating much of the fight when he took on Froch in November, was comprehensively beaten this time around.Last time out he floored the WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion in a blistering first round, but this time Froch was much more effective with his jab and gave Groves problems from the outset.An 80,000 crowd saw Groves, 26, enter on the upper deck of an open-topped London bus, while the 36-year-old champion’s no-frills ring entrance signaled a focused and ruthless display.He shook Groves with a powerful right in the fifth but the challenger regrouped and, after a seventh round in which he brought the left hook into play and twice stung Froch, seemed to be finding his range.But the contest came to a sudden and devastating conclusion in the following round when Groves was laid out by a savage right, prompting the referee to stop the fight without bothering to complete a count.See also:DeGale wins to secure world title shotGroves: I’ll come back better and strongerGroves is lined up for September returnGroves to fight in world title eliminatorFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Federer poised for record Wimbledon triumph

AFP FILE PHOTOLONDON—Twelve months after shutting down his season in the wake of a devastating semi-final defeat, Roger Federer returns to Wimbledon as favorite to capture a record-breaking eighth title and become the tournament’s oldest champion.The evergreen Swiss superstar, who turns 36 in August, has stunned the critics who wrote him off as yesterday’s man when he went down to Milos Raonic in five grueling sets on Centre Court in 2016.ADVERTISEMENT Pagasa: Kammuri now a typhoon, may enter PAR by weekend “So I’m happy to react right away and remind myself I actually can play well on grass.“For tennis storylines of 2017, Federer shares top billing with Nadal after the Spaniard defied the doubters to win a 10th French Open.That took him to 15 Grand Slam titles, one ahead of Sampras and just three behind Federer.Bittersweet Nadal But for Nadal, Wimbledon has always been bittersweet.He was champion in 2008 — where he beat Federer in a final widely regarded as the greatest ever played — and 2010 as well as finishing runner-up in 2006, 2007 and 2011.Injury forced him to skip Wimbledon in 2009 and 2016 while the years 2012-2015 saw him lose to Lukas Rosol (world ranked 100), Steve Darcis (135), Nick Kyrgios (144) and Dustin Brown (102).A fourth round run in 2014 represents his best recent effort.Nadal admits that if he suffers a new problem with his knees on the Wimbledon grass, where the lower bounce of the ball piles more pressure on the legs and joints, then his visit to London may again be short-lived.“If I have pain in the knees, then I know from experience that it’s almost impossible,” said the 31-year-old. Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ LATEST STORIES Defending champion Murray is fresh off a first round exit at Queen’s at the hands of Australian world number 90 Jordan Thompson.The world number one, who was also Wimbledon champion in 2013, has failed to get past the second round in three of his last four tournaments.Short of grass court exposure, Murray headed to the luxurious surroundings of the Hurlingham Club in west London for an exhibition tournament.Equally desperate for game time is Djokovic, the three-time Wimbledon champion who travelled to Eastbourne hoping the sea air might breathe life into a career which is in freefall.The Serb was on top of the world just over 12 months ago when he arrived at Wimbledon with all four Grand Slams in his possession.However, a third round loss to Sam Querrey set him on a slide which has been more or less constant ever since.His ranking has slipped from one to four and he’s parted with coaches Boris Becker and Marian Vajda.The jury is still out on his decision to hire Andre Agassi while his quarter-final loss at Roland Garros to Dominic Thiem was his first in straight sets at the majors in four years.The 6-0 ‘bagel’ handed to him in the third set by the young Austrian was the first time he had suffered such an indignity in 12 years.“All the top players go through this. I have to get through it and learn the lessons and come back stronger. It’s a big challenge but I am up for it,” said the 30-year-old Serb. What ‘missteps’?center_img World’s 50 Best Restaurants launches new drinking and dining guide Federer, who captured a fifth Australian Open in January, will go into Wimbledon buoyed by a ninth title on the grass of Halle.His final demolition of Alexander Zverev, 15 years his junior and a player seen as his natural heir, came just a week after he marked his return from a 10-week break by losing in the first round in Stuttgart.It was his first defeat in an opening round on his favorite surface since his shock loss to Mario Ancic at Wimbledon in 2002.However, Federer believes his Stuttgart setback came at the right time ahead of Wimbledon.“I was doubting myself a little bit, I must admit, because losing in the opening round for the first time in 15 years on grass was always going to shake me a little bit and it did,” said Federer who has lost just two matches all year.ADVERTISEMENT Myers to beef up Gilas in Jones Cup 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire Cayetano to unmask people behind ‘smear campaign’ vs him, SEA Games View comments The loss forced him off tour for the remainder of the year to rest a knee injury, leaving his Grand Slam title count on 17 where it had been since 2012.Fast forward a year and Federer is poised to break the tie for seven Wimbledon titles he shares with Pete Sampras and take his career tally at the majors to 19.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutREAD: Federer done resting as he begins Wimbledon prepWith eternal rivals Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in slumps of varying lengths and degrees of seriousness, and Rafael Nadal fretting over whether or not his knees will bear the stress of grass courts, it is Federer in the box seat.

Wilmington Little League Celebrates WHS Senior Dylan Bresnahan

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — This is the sixth in a series of profiles celebrating the former Wilmington Little League’s seniors playing on the Wilmington High School baseball team. Little League’s motto is courage, character, and loyalty. Through playing with and against each other, these student athletes the embodiment of the motto.Dylan BresnahanEvery team needs a player like Dylan Bresnahan on its roster.  The player who keeps everyone lose, the team jokester. The one who’s easy going and funny, great in the dugout and on the field.   He is the prototypical tall lanky lefthander in the mold of former Red Sox Pitcher Bill Lee.  The word laid back adequately describes Dylan.  But, put him between the lines and he knows when to bear down and compete, smiling all the while.  He is his team’s gentle giant, no matter, baseball, football or hockey always ready with a quick one liner and a smile.Dylan began his WLL career in Rookie ball playing for the Thunder, coached by his dad John.  Coming out of a year of T-Ball in which he got to play with his twin sister Morgan, Dylan was ready for his first year on the small diamond.  Even at a young age his personality stood out. He not only loved to play the game, he loved having fun with his teammates. But his number one memory of that first year was getting to play for his dad.  He made his way through WLL playing A ball for the Pirates and Coach Pete Marino, and AA for the Brewers and Coach Derek Santini. He made the AA all-star team getting him ready for the jump to the Majors.Dylan was drafted by the A’s as an 11-year-old and played for Coach Mike Gracia.  Following his first season in the majors, Dylan was selected by the Twins and Coach Tom Sheehan. By getting a chance to play on two different teams, one of Dylan’s top memories from the Majors were the many great teammates played with.  He got to play with future WHS teammates Danny Gracia and Tommy Worob on the A’s and Ben Maynard on the Twins.  On field highlights included making the 12-year-old all-star team, winning the regular season and playoff championship with the A’s, and winning the regular season championship with the Twins.  Dylan has to be one of a few players in WLL history to win titles with two different teams.  He really enjoyed playing for Coach Mike Gracia in his first season in the Majors.Dylan also played Jimmy Fund in the summer, having a great time in a relaxed atmosphere getting to hang out with his friends and just playing ball.  He played on some fun teams while representing Wilmington at the Memorial Day tournaments in Woburn, at Wafer park. As with almost anything Dylan does he enjoyed playing alongside his friends and was probably one of the best teammates.He capped his WLL career as a member of the 2016 Northeast team, which was the first Wilmington team to win a Northeast League Division championship. His care free attitude helped settle the team down during tense moments. He also enjoyed the “fun times” he and his teammates had playing for Coach Boyle.This was Dylan’s first year playing Varsity Baseball for the Wildcats, having competed at the Freshman and JV level for the past 3 years. Dylan played four years for the WHS Hockey team and also played a couple of seasons of WHS Football, scoring a defensive touchdown as a Senior.Dylan is the son of Linda and John Bresnahan, twin brother of Sister Morgan and older brother of Sister Shaylan. His parents have enjoyed watching him play over the years with both family and friends.  In the fall he is planning on attending UMass Amherst and studying Business.

Facebook New Zealand shooting video had fewer than 200 realtime viewers

first_img Tags Share your voice Facebook Now playing: Watch this: Screen recordings, in which people video-recorded the stream on their phones and uploaded that video, were more difficult to automatically detect, according to Sonderby. To fix this issue, the company “expanded to additional detection systems,” which included using sound detection.  The Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, a consortium of technology companies, highlighted more than 800 different versions of the video, Reuters noted.New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told Parliament on Tuesday that the government is going to look closely at the role social media played in the incident, Bloomberg reported.”We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and what is said is not the responsibility of the place where they are published,” she said. “They are the publisher not just the postman. There cannot be a case of all profit no responsibility.” Getty Images Facebook on Tuesday offered some statistics in its defense following criticism of its struggle to contain the spread of a livestream video of Friday’s mass shooting in New Zealand.The social network said that the stream had fewer than 200 viewers during the live broadcast and that the video got roughly 4,000 views before it was taken down.The numbers were revealed in a blog post by Facebook Deputy General Counsel Chris Sonderby, who said no users reported the video when it was live. The first user report came 12 minutes after the livestream ended, a full 29 minutes after it started. As previously noted, Facebook purged 1.5 million uploads of the video and most (1.2 million) were blocked before going live on the platform. Sonderby said in the Tuesday blog post that the original video was digitally mapped so that Facebook software could detect and block similar videos.On Friday, a gunman in Christchurch attacked Muslims praying at two mosques and livestreamed the shooting on Facebook.

John McAfee has been detained his Twitter account claims

first_imgJohn McAfee has apparently gone missing. Screenshot by Sean Hollister/CNET John McAfee has apparently gone missing and is believed to have been detained by authorities, according to a series of tweets Tuesday from the Twitter account of the 2020 presidential candidate and maker of an “unhackable” cryptocurrency wallet. Operating McAfee’s Twitter account, his campaign manager Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez said data hidden across the world by McAfee will be revealed if he remains detained. The antivirus software pioneer has been on the run since 2012 after his alleged involvement in a murder in Belize, which he denies. McAfee last week tweeted his only “crime is not filing tax returns.” He claims the rest of the charges against him is “propaganda by the US government to silence me.” “I have good reason to suspect that John McAfee, @theemrsmcafee and other companions have been detained by authorities at their latest port of call,” Loggia-Ramirez tweeted on McAfee’s account Tuesday. “If John misses his next check-in, events will be set into motion that I cannot prevent once they have begun. John has secreted data with individuals across the world. I know neither their identities or locations. They will release their payloads if John goes missing.” Loggia-Ramirez told CNET he has no more information about the detainment, but that he and others are “employing every possible resource to locate him and secure his release.” “The bastards wouldn’t even give him a cigarette,” Loggia-Ramirez tweeted. The Twitter thread didn’t say when McAfee’s next check-in was scheduled. On July 19, McAfee had tweeted that the CIA “attempted to collect us.” “We are at sea now and will report more soon. I will continue to be dark for the next few days,” he tweeted with a picture of himself and his wife holding guns. On July 22, McAfee then tweeted about being at sea in rough weather for four and a half days. “Nearing port. All is well. Will be back in the saddle shortly,” he said. Loggia-Ramirez told CNET later Tuesday that he could not share the plans or timeline for the release of the secreted data across the world. “I can say that our response has been pre-coordinated in the event something like this happened, and it that has many moving pieces involving people unaware of each other,” he said in a private Twitter message. “John is not stupid.” Loggia-Ramirez sent three additional tweets from McAfee’s account later on Tuesday, thanking people for their support and emphasizing that this is not a stunt.”There are also some people that doubt the veracity of today’s report. That is fair enough and can be forgiven. But you will find you are mistaken – this is not a publicity stunt,” he tweeted.  (2/4) I last spoke with John as his boat was being boarded. The situation was tense but controlled. Our conversation was cut short by authorities confiscating their phones.

Texas Gov Abbott Begins ReElection Bid With No Rivals Yet

first_img Share Andrew SchneiderGovernor Greg Abbott with Sen. Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston), and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick looking on.Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has launched his re-election campaign with no challengers yet in sight and a new immigration crackdown that could test Hispanic voters in 2018.Supporters cheered Friday when Abbott hailed a new “sanctuary cities” ban that lets police ask people during routine stops whether they’re in the U.S. legally. The largest cities in Texas, including Houston and Dallas, want a federal judge to block the law that opponents say will create a chilling effect in immigrant communities.Abbott says it’s irresponsible to release “known criminals” onto the streets.Democrats say voters won’t stand for the law next year. But there’s no obvious challenger to Abbott to emerge so far.Abbott made big gains among Hispanic voters for a Republican candidate four years ago.last_img read more
