On the other hand, Molde will not get in the way of such an opportunity.”When the biggest club in the world call and ask to borrow your manager from a club the size of Molde, you have to say yes.”Solskjaer has been dreaming about this.

We could have won with another result. we missed three or four good opportunities but I’m happy with the reaction. It was dangerous for us when they conceded, but we reacted well and we didn’t stop playing our football.”On Eden Hazard’s performance, he added: “I think he played very well, not only for his two goals, but he was good with his teammates and in open spaces. I like him in every position he is a great player.”In this moment we need this solution because we need to be more solid defensively and with this system we can score and become more solid in the defensive phase. Maybe in the last match, we played better in the first half than we did tonight, but today the application was very good.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Head basketball coach Mark Fox tweeted out video from last weekend, when Eason was on campus, of his team proving that it needs a quarterback.

New Details Have Emerged From Urban Meyer’s Contract

(Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)Urban Meyer said in his statement released last Friday that he did properly report the domestic violence accusations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith, but a new look into the Ohio State coach’s contract show that he still could be fired even if that’s true.USA TODAY looked into Meyer’s contract with the Buckeyes and found a couple of clauses that could allow for Ohio State to terminate him, even if he properly reported accusations/an incident involving Smith.From the report:A USA TODAY Sports review of Meyer’s contract found there would be other grounds to fire him for cause even if he did what was required in terms of reporting – if Ohio State has the stomach for it. One provision allows him to be fired for “fraud or dishonesty … in the course of his duties or responsibilities.” When Meyer was asked at Big Ten media day about his knowledge of the 2015 allegations, he lied repeatedly.Another clause allows for his firing if he behaves in a way that reflects “unfavorably upon Ohio State’s reputation and overall primary mission and objectives.” Still another says he can be fired for failing to “perform his duties and personally comport himself at all times in a manner consistent with good sportsmanship and with the high moral, ethical and academic standards of Ohio State and its Department of Athletics.”You can view the full report here.Urban Meyer remains under investigation by Ohio State. The Buckeyes announced on Sunday night that the investigation is expected to take two weeks.Ohio State is set to open its 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State.The Buckeyes are currently being led by interim coach Ryan Day in Meyer’s absence.last_img read more

Brett McMurphy Expounds On His Latest Zach Smith Report

first_imgzach smith gives an interview on espnCollege football insider Brett McMurphy, now an employee of Stadium, appeared on the radio this morning to expound on his Zach Smith report that dropped on Friday evening.The latest report alleged that the former Ohio State assistant coach had thousands of dollars worth of adult toys sent to the Buckeyes’ facility and that he took nude photos while inside the White House, among other things.This morning, McMurphy appeared on Clay Travis’ radio show to discuss his report and why he felt is was relevant.“If you’re an Ohio State fan, you don’t like (the new info) and if you’re not an Ohio State fan, you love it,” McMurphy said, per 247Sports. “The main reason I reported it is because Zach Smith was an employee at Ohio State having sex with a subordinate in the football office. He (took pictures) on a phone he conducts university business on. He was having all the (sex toys) items delivered, not to his personal home, but his place of employment.“This goes toward the lack of credibility this guy has when you factor in (the other stuff). The woman he had sex with was reassigned to another department in the summer of 2015. She was reassigned after what went on, but he remained employed.”Full details of the report can be seen here.McMurphy then detailed some questions he would ask Meyer if he could.“If I could ask Urban Meyer two questions, that would be one of the questions and the other question would be, ‘Why did you lie about this at media days?’” McMurphy said. “Everything I reported about Zach Smith’s past in 2009 and 2015, somebody at Ohio State knew about this information. Or multiple people. Zach Smith is the same person he is today as he was in 2015, 2013 and 2009. Ohio State never had a problem with Zach Smith until the information went public. Ohio State, not only Urban, needs to answer that question.”Ohio State’s investigation into Urban Meyer, meanwhile, was supposed to be wrapped up on Sunday. Stay tuned.last_img read more

Galaxy M30, Galaxy S10+ Galaxy A50: Samsung has many Galaxy phones, here is a list of phones worth buying

first_img Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiJune 21, 2019UPDATED: June 24, 2019 10:33 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Galaxy M30 offers a Super AMOLED display and 5,000mAh battery at under Rs 15,000.The Galaxy A70 offers the largest AMOLED display among the lot for an immersive viewing experience.The Galaxy S10+ is the best premium Samsung phone to buy with its Exynos 9820 chipset and triple camera setup.Samsung came into 2019 with an intention to rapidly expand its smartphone portfolio. In a span of 6 months, Samsung has launched around a dozen smartphones in India. The Galaxy A series and the newly minted Galaxy M series make up the bulk of these phones and have allowed Samsung to practically offer a Galaxy phone across every price segment ranging from budget to the ultra premium.While there are a lot of Samsung phones to choose from today, not all of them are worth buying. The fact that some of these phones are priced so close to each other makes it harder for consumers to pick the good ones from the okay-ish ones. So, we decided to pick some of the best Galaxy phones worth considering across different price segments.Samsung Galaxy M20: Rs 9,990For the past few years, Samsung has not been able to compete against the likes of Xiaomi and Honor in the budget segment, but the Galaxy M series has turned things around for the company. The Galaxy M20 (Review) was initially launched starting at Rs 10,990, but is now available at Rs 9,990, which makes it the best Samsung phone to choose under Rs 10,000.The Galaxy M20 impresses with its 6.3-inch FHD Infinity-V display, which is sharp and offers great viewing angles. It also comes with Widevine L1 certifications, which is great to see in this segment. The Galaxy M20 is powered by a new 1.8Ghz Exynos 7904 chipset which can handle day-to-day tasks smoothly. Samsung has also updated the Galaxy M20 to Android Pie with One UI.advertisement The other major reason to go for the Galaxy M20 is its massive 5,000mAh battery, which can last a day and a half on full charge. It also supports 15W fast charging over a Type-C port, which is also something you don’t see often in this segment. This is topped with a decent triple camera setup that includes a useful wide-angle lens.Samsung Galaxy M30: Rs 14,990The Galaxy M30 (Review) is by far the best phone in the Galaxy M lineup right now, and we say this despite the launch of the Galaxy M40. This is because the Galaxy M30 embodies everything that consumers have come to expect from Samsung’s new series – an attractive design paired with great hardware at an affordable price.The best feature about the Galaxy M30 is its 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED display, which can blow away the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro in this segment. The Galaxy M30 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 7904 chipset and was recently updated to Android Pie with One UI on top. It gets a 13MP + 5MP + 5MP triple camera setup and a 16MP selfie camera. The icing on the cake is its large 5,000mAh battery which like the Galaxy M20 can last up to a day and a half on a single charge with ease.Samsung Galaxy A50: Rs 18,490Despite the launch of the Galaxy M40, the Galaxy A50 (Review) is still the one to go for under Rs 20,000. It is quite easily the best all-round affordable mid-range Samsung smartphone for the masses. From the outside, the Galaxy A50 feels premium as it offers a stunning Super AMOLED display and a sleek and lightweight form factor. It also gets an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is as 2019 as it can get.The Galaxy A50 offers a 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED Infinity-U display that delivers stunning colours with a lot of vividness and deep blacks. It is powered by a snappy 2.3GHz octa-core Exynos 9610 chipset, which is perhaps Samsung’s best mid-range processor right now. This is coupled with a smooth and optimised One UI software with Night mode and a new UI. What completes the Galaxy A50 is a pretty impressive set of cameras. The triple camera setup includes a 25MP f/1.7 primary camera along with a 5MP depth and 8MP ultra wide-angle cameras. The cameras are versatile and offer great clarity and colour reproduction in daylight. The 25MP selfie camera does equally well to offer crisp and attractive selfies. Lastly, the 4,000mAh battery is solid and should deliver over a full day of battery life on above average usage.Samsung Galaxy A70: Rs 28,990The Galaxy A70 (Review) is for consumers who want a big screen smartphone for an immersive viewing experience without paying a premium. The Galaxy A70 is one of the only phones you will find south of Rs 30,000 that offers a large 6.7-inch display. With a display as big as this, you also need a solid battery, which the Galaxy A70 also delivers.advertisementRight now, the Galaxy A70 is the most premium Galaxy A series phone you can buy. It offers a curved glasstic rear panel which makes it easier to grip a phone this big. The Galaxy A70 sports an Infinity-U FHD+ Super AMOLED panel that is absolutely great for binging of shows and playing games. It is powered by a Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is the same processor powering the Galaxy M40 as well.The Galaxy A70 sports a triple camera setup that includes a 32MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 5MP depth camera. It also gets a high-res 32MP front-facing camera, which offers crisp selfies. With a 4,500mAh battery, the Galaxy A70 can stay charged for a full day if you’re someone who loves to consume a lot of media.Samsung Galaxy S10e: Rs 50,900The Galaxy S10e (Review) is the affordable flagship from Samsung in 2019. It is also the exact opposite to the Galaxy A70 in terms of design. This is a compact phone for consumers who are looking for a petite and handy phone, which is quite a rarity in 2019. It sports a 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280×1440) Dynamic AMOLED display, which is pretty small by today’s standards.The small form factor of the S10e makes it lightweight and easy to use with one hand. It also gets a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which is snappy easily accessible. Under the hood, it rocks the same Exynos 9820 chipset as the Galaxy S10 and S10+. It gets a dual 12MP + 16MP dual camera setup that includes an ultra wide-angle lens.The only downside to buying a compact phone is that it will also come with a compact battery life. The 3,100mAh battery makes the S10e deliver the poorest battery life among the Samsung phones we have mentioned in this list. It will struggle to last till the end of the day and may require a couple of charges through the day depending on your usage.Samsung Galaxy S10+: Rs 73,900If you want to spend a lot of money to get the best that Samsung has to offer right now, it should be on the Galaxy S10+ (Review) by default. This is the biggest, most premium smartphone from Samsung in 2019 so far and it brings the best of everything right from its curved glass design to its QHD+ Infinity-O display, some great cameras and high-end hardware. The Galaxy S10+ sports a 6.4-inch QHD+ (3040×1440) Dynamic AMOLED display and is powered by the Exynos 9820 chipset. It is offered with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. It also brings an intuitive ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, dual front cameras, triple rear cameras and a long-lasting 4,100mAh battery.ALSO READ | Galaxy Note 10 to come without earpiece, Samsung may opt for Sound on Display techGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

While he did bat, Anderson could not take further part in the field with Olly Stone and Archer taking his place in the middle for much of the rest of the Test which England lost by 251 runs.”Hard losing Jimmy early on but these things happen,” said Root in the post-match presentation ceremony. “Not sure (about his status), we have to wait on the scans. Have to see how (Archer) shapes up as well. We don’t have to make any shotgun decisions in terms of selection, its important we’re clear on how we want to go.”The second Test at Lord’s starts on August 14 and Root said that the intervening time will be useful for the squad to regroup and ensure that there is “no hangover” of this defeat. “It gives us a chance to get away, regroup, make sure this doesn’t have a hangover effect,” he said.”(The defeat) does hurt, bitterly disappointing, I thought we played some good cricket but credit to Australia.”The captain wants a response at Lord’s. #Ashes pic.twitter.com/F6dR52HLVlEngland Cricket (@englandcricket) August 5, 2019Root also praised Smith for his twin centuries in the match and Australia for the way they bowled on the fifth day, dismissing England for 146 as they chased a target of 398.advertisement”Two brilliant innings (from Smith), we have to keep working hard on trying to get him out. There was some high-class bowling, we were made to work hard but I think you look further back in the Test match for where we lost it. We didn’t do it for long enough and didn’t take our chance,” he said.Also Read | Steve Smith best Test player in the world: Tim Paine after Australia win Ashes openerAlso Read | Australia win 1st Test at Edgbaston in 18 years after Steve Smith, Nathan Lyon heroicsAlso Read | Steve Smith, Nathan Lyon script victory as Australia go 1-0 up vs EnglandFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Worn Out Wednesday- Nick Thomas

first_img The Best Men’s Quilted Jackets Stitched for Every Occasion It’s Time to Take Moonshine Seriously Long Hair for Men: Tips for Growing and Maintaining Your Style Editors’ Recommendations What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable Yada, Yada, Yada … An Immersive Seinfeld Experience Is Coming to NYC This Fall This week we spoke to Real Estate raconteur Nick Thomas about his personal style:I’ve been involved in the southern California real estate business for as long as I can remember.  Ive always had either a work belt  or a suit on. While I concentrate mainly on high end residential sales, I am currently in the process of buying a few mid century modern properties and bringing them back to their original glory. I really enjoy the creative outlet that I get from remodeling/restoring properties that represent California so well.As for my style, here it goes:Jeans: APC New Cure, I have a few of these all at different stages of fadedness.Shirts: I have my formal shirting custom made by various tailors, for casual wovens I like Acne, APC and Odin’s  shirts.Shorts: When I’m on the beach it is always Saturdays board shorts.Pants:  Unis skinny Gio. For me there are no other chinos that fits as well as the Unis pant. Plus they are made in the USA.Suits: I have mine custom made by a local tailor for the best fit!Shoes: JM Weston Demi-chasse or anything Alden in cordovan.Accessories: I just got these  illesteva shades designed by Lou Reed before his passing, RIP Lou Reed. I don’t have any jewelry besides a gold Rolex from the 40s. It doesn’t keep time that well but if it could speak I bet it’d have some stories to tell.Outerwear:I have a ton of vintage leather jackets: A-2 bombers as well as Schott motorcycle jackets and Barbour jackets. I love my dad’s sheepskin coat and I have a camel Brooks Brothers topcoat that I get to break out on trips to see family in London.For California weather I stick to Barbour Bedale or Aspesis m65, Todd Snyder makes some great lightweight jackets as well.Your favorite App: hands down Waze is my favorite app. Uber is a close second.Favorite piece of technology: I have a Nest in my house, it’s great, especially in the summer, I can get the AC blasting on my way home so its nice and chilly when I arrive.Next tech purchase:i’M always breaking my iPhones, so probably another one!last_img read more
