Uchendu debuts as Orji inspires Linkopings comeback at Vittsjo

first_imgNigeria’s Chinaza Uchendu made her debut for Linkopings as compatriot Ebere Orji’s effort inspired their 2-1 comeback victory in Sunday’s Swedish Damallsvenskan triumph at Vittsjo. The 27-year-old joined Linkopings in January from Umea where she scored 12 goals to inspire their top-flight return and has since established herself under the watch of Olof Unogard’s team. Orji scored a brace and initiated the third goal as Olof Unogard’s team opened their campaign on a winning note with 3-0 triumph over Vaxjo last week as Uchenna Kanu made a cameo debut. Going into the tie, Vittsjo were desperate to return to winning ways after an opening 1-0 defeat to champions Rosengard last week, while Linkopings sought to maintain their impressive start. After a cagey opening half-hour, Clara Markstedt broke the deadlock in the 39th minute to hand the hosts a first-half lead at Vittsjo IP.Advertisement Loading… However, the visitors returned to the contest in high spirits and Orji led the comeback, netting the equalizer in the 61st minute before Frida Maanum’s 73rd-minute strike from a corner ensured the triumph. Orji has now scored three goals in two competitive games and lasted 87 minutes before being replaced by debutant Chinaza Uchendu while Uchenna Kanu lasted the duration of the tie. read also:Orji Okwonkwo:I will be a better player under Thierry Henry The triumph temporarily places Linkopings to the top of the Damallsvenskan log with six points plus a four-goal advantage, pending the outcome of Pitea’s clash with Orebro.

Milford woman fined after dog attacks neighbour

first_imgA Judge has said dog owners look very differently at their pets than people who do not own dogs.Judge Paul Kelly was speaking in the case of a young Co Donegal woman charged with not having her dog under control or having a muzzle or chain on it.Shauna Galagher appeared at Falcarragh District Court after her German Shepherd dog attacked her neighbour. The court heard Ms Gallagher, 23, had her dog at her home at Moyle Park on September 1st last year.The dog, whom she had owned since it was a pup, became excited when it came across neighbour Sarah McGoldrick.It jumped up on her and bit her on the forearm leaving her with two puncture wounds.The young mum had to receive medical treatment from her local doctor for the wounds. Solicitor for Ms Galagher, Mr Rory O’Brien told the court that the dog was licensed but that he was not muzzled or on a lead when he came out of the rear of the house.He said it was a “human error” and the dog was normally under control and well behaved.Since the incident, Ms Gallagher’s partner had put up a fence and bolts to keep the dog enclosed.“It was a once-off isolated incident,” added Mr O’Brien.However, Judge Kelly said people who owned dogs took a different view from people who didn’t own them. Judge Kelly described it as a “terrifying ordeal” for the injured party to be attacked by a dog and particularly a German Shepherd.There was an obligation on such dog owners to have the animal on a leash and muzzled.“That’s why the laws are in place.” saying the victim of the attack had received a “nasty injury” as a result.He ordered Ms Gallagher to pay Ms McGoldrick €250 for her costs including medical treatment.

Video: Georgia Basketball Ran A Football Play For Quarterback Recruit Jacob Eason, It Didn’t Go Well

(Photo by Kevin C.

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. The basketball team runs a play, and a deep ball almost leads to disaster for one receiver. We tried to show a certain recruit we needed a QB at practice last weekend…— Mark Fox (@coachmarkfox) December 16, 2015The hedges at Sanford Stadium are probably a bit more forgiving than that wall, and they’re not so dangerously close to the end zone. We’re not sure if Eason, who we can’t quite identify in the blurry video, was impressed with the display, but he re-upped with the Dawgs either way.last_img read more

PM wraps cabinet retreat with hint of pot pardons to come –

first_imgLONDON, Ont. – Canadians convicted of simple marijuana possession will have to wait until recreational pot is legalized later this year before learning if they’ll be pardoned for something that will no longer be a crime.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ruled out Friday declaring an amnesty before the new law goes into effect in July.“We recognize that anyone who is currently purchasing marijuana is participating in illegal activity that is funding criminal organizations and street gangs,” he told a news conference wrapping up a two-day cabinet retreat.“And therefore we do not want to encourage in any way people to engage in that behaviour until the law is changed.”Trudeau hinted that an amnesty could be declared once the law is enacted, although he did not specifically commit to one.“Once the law is changed, we will, of course, reflect on fairness in a way that is responsible moving forward. I think certainly we know that the current legislation is hurting Canadians and criminalizing Canadians who perhaps shouldn’t be,” he said.“But that is an engagement we will take once we have a legalized and controlled regime in place, not before.”Earlier Friday, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said his department is analyzing all the legal ramifications of pardoning the thousands of Canadians who’ve been convicted of possessing small amounts of marijuana — acquiring criminal records that can hurt their career prospects or prevent them from crossing the border.Goodale said no decision has yet been made.The legalization of recreational marijuana is one of the biggest ticket items on the Trudeau government’s agenda for 2018 as the ruling Liberals tick off as many of their 2015 election campaign promises as possible in preparation for the next election in 2019.Government insiders have said the year will be focused primarily on “relentless implementation” of the Liberals’ central promise to invest in measures to grow the economy, create jobs and bolster the lot of middle-class Canadians.“We laid out an ambitious plan for growth during the 2015 election campaign and that plan for real change for all Canadians is working,” Trudeau asserted Friday, noting that unemployment is at its lowest level since 1976 and that Canada last year boasted the best economic growth among G7 industrialized countries.The Liberals are hoping that Canadians’ satisfaction with the state of the economy will trump criticism about other less favourable aspects of their record — particularly on the ethics front.Just before Christmas, the federal ethics watchdog ruled that Trudeau violated four different sections of the Conflict of Interest Act when he and his family took vacations on the private Bahamian Island owned by the Aga Khan, billionaire philanthropist and spiritual leader of the world’s Ismaili Muslims.Opposition parties, intent on keeping the ethics lapses front and centre in the new year, are calling for stricter rules and serious penalties for violating them.On that score, Trudeau said Friday that he’s willing to consider beefing up the conflict of interest legislation.“I’m always happy to take recommendations from experts, from various people like the outgoing commissioner or the incoming commissioner on how we can ensure that our institutions and the folks who protect and uphold our institutions continue to be doing the best things the best way for Canadians,” he said.Conveniently, outgoing ethics commissioner Mary Dawson has said she believes public shaming is sufficient penalty for politicians who break ethics rules.While the Liberals want to focus on the economy and the opposition parties on ethics, neither issue has generated much interest so far in Trudeau’s so-called cross-country “listening tour” to hear what Canadians outside the Ottawa bubble think.But Trudeau said the fact he got few questions during the first three town halls this week about his government’s economic agenda is actually a positive sign.“If there weren’t as many questions as there were in previous town halls I’ve done on the economy, I think it can be taken as a sign that we are on the right track.”last_img read more

New York Now Has More Mets Fans Than Yankees Fans

8/31/075135-16 4/17/064836-12 POLL DATEYANKEESMETSMETS MARGIN 3/24/146127-34 Move over, New York Yankees — there’s a new baseball boss in town. For the first time since at least 1998, Quinnipiac University has found, more New York City baseball fans liked the Mets than the Yankees. Although it was a narrow victory — 45 percent to 43 percent, well within the margin of error — it shows that winning ballgames remains the key to winning the hearts of Big Apple sports fans.The Yankees usually hold a hefty fan advantage over the Mets in New York. Over the last 20 years, the Yankees have averaged a sizable 55 percent-to-31 percent lead over their crosstown rivals. Just three years ago, the Yankees led the Mets 61 percent to 27 percent on the same question Quinnipiac asked this year. 3/25/095655-133429 3/16/005235-17 10/19/004337-6 Average5554-1334310 6/1/126221-41 The Mets do much better when baseball fans are forced to choose between the Mets and the Yankees. While the Yankees lose a statistically insignificant 1 percentage point of support on average, the Mets pick up 10 points of support. This seems to confirm the finding of a nonscientific Reddit poll from three years ago that found the Yankees were the most hated team among baseball fans. In other words, non-Yankee and non-Met fans may pick the Mets when forced to choose between the two of them, simply because they dislike the Yankees more.This year, though, the Mets beat the Yankees on the open-ended version of the question — the version in which they have always done worse. If we take this year’s result and apply the same boost the Mets typically receive in the other version of the question (where fans were forced to choose between the two teams), they would probably hold a 10-point head-to-head advantage over the Yankees. That’s pretty mind-boggling, considering the Mets were down 22 points on that type of question just three years ago.The Mets need to keep winning, however, if they want to maintain an edge over the Yankees. As I wrote about three years ago, the Mets seem to pick up fans when they win and shed them when they lose, but the same didn’t hold true for the Yankees. Now, it seems the Yankees may also gain or lose fans depending on their record. (Before this year, Quinnipiac had never polled after a season in which the Mets made the playoffs — or World Series — more recently than the Yankees.) In the chart below, I’ve plotted the difference between the percentages of Met fans and Yankee fans in New York City against the difference in how long it had been since each team had been in the playoffs.1For the sake of simplicity, I’m using the version of Quinnipiac’s question that allows baseball fans to choose any team, not just the Mets and the Yankees. However, there’s a clear correlation with either question. 3/24/1459%37%-22 3/25/095542-13 Fav. in a Subway Series Average5531-24 4/1/024738-9 Indeed, the Yankee lead climbed as high as 41 points five years ago. That survey was taken after a season in which the Yankees had made the playoffs, while the Mets hadn’t appeared in the postseason in six years. Now the tables have turned: The Mets have made the playoffs two years in a row, even appearing in the World Series in 2015. Meanwhile, the Yankees didn’t make the playoffs last year and they haven’t made a World Series since 2009.Before this year, the only time the Mets ever came close to the Yankees was in May 2007. That year, 49 percent of New York City baseball fans said they’d root for the Yankees in a Subway Series against the Mets, while 48 percent said they’d root the other way. Recent results had an influence then, too — the Mets made it to the National League Championship Series (before losing to the St. Louis Cardinals) in 2006, while the Yankees were knocked out in the American League Division Series.The Mets’ triumph in this year’s poll, however, is far more impressive than when they nearly overtook the Yankees 10 years ago. You’ll notice in the table that there are two types of questions Quinnipiac has asked on this subject in the past: Sometimes they asked baseball fans who they’d root for in a World Series matchup between the Mets and the Yankees, as they did when the Mets came close to the Yankees in 2007. Other times, fans are asked who their favorite baseball team is overall. (That is, fans can choose teams besides the Mets and Yankees.) And in four surveys, Quinnipiac asked both versions of the question. 7/26/015432-22 3/24/146159-2273710 5/28/074948-1 POLL DATETEAM IN MLBIN SUBWAY SERIESDIFFTEAM IN MLBIN SUBWAY SERIESDIFF 5/28/0750%49%-136%48%12 Source: Quinnipiac University YANKEES ARE FAVORITE …METS ARE FAVORITE … 5/28/075036-14 NYC baseball fans like the Mets more than the Yankees for the first time in 20 years Among New York City baseball fansSource: Quinnipiac University Average5138-13 8/31/075152135449 7/28/986028-32 3/25/095633-23 3/31/1743%45%+2 7/29/115926-33 The Mets are more popular when they’re pitted against the Yankees 4/1/055136-15 7/18/064637-9 8/31/075244-8 Poll DateYankeesMetsMets margin Perhaps what’s most interesting about the chart is that, based on prior trends, we would have expected the Yankees to have more fans than the Mets even now. That is, in an environment where the Mets were doing slightly better than the Yankees, the pattern would have been for the Yankees to still have a larger fan base. That might mean Quinnipiac’s new poll is too friendly to the Mets — certainly a possibility, given the margin of error. It could also be the case that the Mets are receiving a “bonus” because they were in the playoffs last year and the Yankees weren’t. Again, we can’t really test that phenomenon because in every previous survey, the Yankees had been in the playoffs as recently (or far more so) than the Mets had been.Either way, it’s clear that New York City is a two-baseball-team town right now. The Mets have caught up to — or perhaps even surpassed — their older brother. Yankee fans need their team to start winning again, or they’ll have to get used to seeing a lot more Mets caps on the subway as they make their commute. 8/15/136223-39 FAVORITE TEAM IN MLB read more
