first_imgMany Chelsea fans on Twitter were full of praise for Victor Moses following the 2-0 win at Hull.Moses was given a starting place by boss Antonio Conte and repaid him with an excellent performance at right wing-back.Many Blues supporters are now hoping the Nigerian keeps his spot in the team.Moses definitely took his chance well. So direct. Just wants to run at players or cross it, something which our “wingers” lack. #cfc— Martin Connolly (@_MC1905_) October 1, 2016Will hold my hands up; I was wrong about Moses.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Tottenham midfielder Winks hits back at ‘Spursy’ claimsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham midfielder Harry Winks has dismissed claims of a “Spursy” defeat to Wolves on Saturday.Winks was not having it after only a second defeat in 15 matches for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.“I have to be careful about this…” he said. “We are doing really well. We have had one defeat since ­Arsenal away.“We have had some fantastic results in the Champions League and the Premier League and it is important to remember how well we are doing and not get carried away with a defeat.“Listen, when people use the word Spursy on social media, that is their own opinion. They are ­entitled to that. But inside the club we know how good we are, we know how far we can go, we have belief, regardless of this result.“It shows how well we are doing this year to be considered title ­contenders and to be sitting here disappointed that we aren’t closer to the top.“We have high expectations ourselves and, if we don’t come away with a win against Wolves at home, we get frustrated at that. It shows how high our standards are at the moment and how ambitious we are.“We said before the game that it was must-win so to come away with a defeat has left the dressing room feeling very down. Everyone is fuming, but it is football. We are still in the race.”Spurs now have to pick themselves up for a tricky New Year’s Day trip to Cardiff.Winks added: “The mood in the dressing room was very calm. ­Everyone was very quiet and kept themselves to themselves.“Everyone is gutted — frustrated as well. The most important thing is to reflect on it and then go into the building bright and smiley and feeling positive and try and get ourselves ready for the next game.“We can’t keep that negative ­energy around, because otherwise it can affect matches.” last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — Installing solar panels already makes sense for most homeowners in Saskatchewan and Ontario but the National Energy Board says the abundance of cheap hydroelectricity in Quebec and Manitoba means solar power may never make much economic sense in those provinces.In Canada, long, dark winters means its unlikely solar will ever become the sole source of electricity anywhere.“The country cannot run solely on solar panels in the future,” said NEB chief economist Jean-Denis Charlebois.The NEB today is releasing a study of the costs of solar compared to current electricity prices. It has an online site where Canadians can plug in their city name and find out whether there is an economic case for solar for them now or in the future.There are 20,000 communities across every province and territory included in the study that looked at both capacity to produce solar based on hours of sunlight, as well as the cost.The main finding of the study is that no matter the amount of sunlight, the only places where installing and running solar panels is already cheaper than paying for power from the electricity grids are the places where power rates are already really high. That is in Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island and most places in Ontario.In provinces where power is still pretty cheap — mainly Manitoba and Quebec — the NEB says solar can sometimes cost more than twice as much as traditional power sources.In Saskatchewan, for example, where electricity costs are among the highest in the country, the break-even price for solar is already 93 per cent of the current average cost of power for homeowners. But next door in Manitoba, where hydro costs are among the lowest in the country, the solar price for homeowners is 176 per cent of the current cost of electricity. In Quebec it’s 223 per cent.Ontario’s time-of-day electricity rates make the cost of solar about 95 per cent of the average cost to buy power from the grid.Charlebois said the average cost for a 5 kilowatt solar installation is about $16,000 and that price is predicted to go down as much as 30 per cent in the next five or 10 years.The price to buy power from the grid is going up about two per cent a year. Between those increases and rebate programs for solar installations available in some provinces, over the next decade solar will start to beat the power grid price in Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia, the NEB predicts.The price for power in Manitoba and Quebec is still so low that even once the cost of solar drops significantly, it is not expected to become competitive.The B.C. coast and the eastern edge of Newfoundland are among the worst places to generate solar power because they don’t get a lot of sunshine. The territories have higher costs to install solar because of the remoteness of most communities, but the high cost of power, often generated by diesel, makes solar significantly cheaper in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.Long term, even homeowners that use solar will need access to power grids for some of their power because the sun isn’t always shining and batteries can only store power for between four and 10 hours.The case for solar for businesses is slightly different because of differing power rates. Businesses in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Ontario may already find it cheaper to add solar panels than continue to buy power only from the grid. The NEB says rebate programs in Saskatchewan and Alberta will make solar more economical than traditional power over the next few years.Mia Rabson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgChicago: Rapper R. Kelly has been released from jail here after the $161,000 he owed in child support was paid. The Cook County sheriff’s office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and he was set free shortly afterwards, reports bbc.com. It is unclear who made the singer’s payment. The R&B artist was last month charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, involving four alleged victims, three of whom were minors. Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knot He pleaded not guilty to all the charges and was released on bail after spending three nights in jail. If convicted, he faces three to seven years in prison on each charge. As he walked out of jail on Saturday, CNN quoted him as saying: “We’re going to straighten all this stuff out.” The singer had been prepared to pay up to $60,000 of what he owed to his former wife, Andrea Kelly, and their three children, but the judge had required the full amount and ordered him detained. The singer’s defence attorney had previously said the singer was having financial difficulties and his finances were a “mess”. Kelly has been a target of a boycott campaign, and his recording contract has been cancelled.last_img read more

first_imgLondon: All episodes of a popular British talk show have been pulled from the internet and filming has been suspended after the reported suicide of a former guest Tuesday. Broadcaster ITV pulled its most popular daytime show “The Jeremy Kyle Show” off air indefinitely following the death of 63-year-old Steve Dymond, a week after he appeared on an episode. Dymond failed a lie-detector test taken on the show to convince his fiancee he had not cheated on her, leading to the couple splitting up, The Sun newspaper reported. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportThe show has been the focus of criticism over its confrontational style, which often pits romantic rivals against each other and has previously descended into violence. Conservative MP Charles Walker told the Daily Mail that ITV “would be best advised just to stop” the show permanently. “It’s a very, very unattractive TV show and I’m surprised it’s gone on so long,” he added. Manchester judge Alan Berg described the show in 2007 as a “morbid and depressing display of dysfunctional people whose lives are in turmoil,” calling it “human bear-baiting.” Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsITV wiped all episodes from its on-demand service the ITV Hub, and episodes will not air on ITV2.

first_imgNEW DELHI – Wearing his traditional Nehru-cap, 45-year old former bureaucrat-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal, head of the newcomer Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) or Common Man’s Party, was sworn in on Saturday as Delhi’s youngest chief minister at Ramlila public park in Delhi as a massive crowd of nearly 100,000 people including party workers cheered him.  Kejriwal, whose party AAP made spectacular electoral debut in Delhi elections of December 4, rode the Delhi metro to the swearing-in ceremony  at the historic public park signifying his party’s promise of “ending the VIP culture” of India’s political capital.Saturday’s oath-taking ceremony was held at the public park on the request of Kejriwal as he wanted “common man” to attend the function. Kejriwal was sworn-in as chief minister by Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung. 1600 policemen were on guard as thousands of party workers and supporters cheered and waved brooms, AAP’s election symbol, as Kejriwal made a soul-stirring speech vowing to serve the people.“I appeal to my party let us never become arrogant,” Kejriwal said.“We are here to serve,” he said.Kejriwal, whose party emerged as a new ray of hope against rampant corruption in government, swore that he and his party will never offer or seek bribe.“Let us swear that we will never seek nor offer a bribe,” Kejriwal thundered as thousands of supporters including common men and women roared in assent.Kejriwal said that Saturday’s swearing-in ceremony was like every common man has become chief minister of Delhi.He termed the recent Delhi election as “miraculous” and “revolutionary” stressing that politics can de done with “honesty” and “integrity.“Till now we used to think that India cannot be saved from corruption but today the people of Delhi have shown that elections and politics can be done with honesty and integrity,” he said.Kejriwal said there is no problem that can’t be solved if there is unity.“There is no problem that we cannot solve if we unite,” he said maintaining that he has no magic wand to solve all the problems.“We don’t have a magic wand, but Delhi’s 1.5 crores (15 million) people can find a solution to anything,” he asserted.Kejriwal addressed a press conference soon after assuming charge of chief minister and announced that he would keep important portfolios including Home, Power, Finance and Vigilance.Kejriwal also reaffirmed his belief that he and his ministers won’t need police security and sprawling government bungalows as the “VIP culture” goes against the spirit of common man’s party.Hours after taking oath, the newly-formed Delhi cabinet decided that no minister or government official will be allowed to carry “red beacon” cars as it signifies “VIP Culture”.On December 23, in a handwritten letter, Kejriwal had formally notified the Delhi police that he does not need any security.“I don’t need any security. I don’t need any escort…God is my biggest security,” Kejriwal had written in the letter.Delhi police chief had written to Kejriwal that as a protocol they are bound to provide him top layer ‘Z’ security.AAP made a spectacular debut in Delhi elections by winning 28 of 70 seats in the new Assembly, whose elections results were declared on December 8. BJP emerged as the single largest party with 31 seats but refused to form a government as it was short of a majority. AAP formed the government with the external support of eight Congress lawmakers.AAP was born out of a country-wide anti-corruption movement spearheaded under the leadership of Gandhian social crusader Anna Hazare which demanded strong anti-corruption legislation against elected representatives and public officials. Kejriwal, a former income tax commissioner, rose to prominence in recent years as the ‘right-hand’ of Hazare.Both Hazare and Kejriwal parted ways after the latter decided to join politics a year ago, citing differences in political views.last_img read more
