Video Heungmin Sons incredible nutmeg gives South Korea their revenge

first_imgHeung-min Son let his football do the talking in South Korea’s recent friendly with Chile on Tuesday with an incredible nutmegThe match itself has been at the centre of controversy of late following a “racist gesture” made by Chile’s Diego Valdes.The 24-year-old midfielder, who plays for Mexican club Morelia, was made to issue a public apology after a photo of him emerged on the internet producing a stereotypical eye signal.But Valdes was made to properly pay for his misconduct against South Korea on Tuesday when Son produced an incredible piece of skill to backheel the ball through his legs and leave him in the shadows.While the game remained goalless, Valdes will want to forget about this one as quickly as possible.Lautaro Martinez, ArgentinaLautaro Martinez talks about his time with Argentina Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez is becoming a regular at the international level, and he’s delighted for the opportunity with his national team.Meanwhile, Son will now finally return to Tottenham after helping South Korea win the Asian Games.It means that he will now be exempt from military duty and can continue with his football as he pleases.With Champions League clashes against Inter Milan and Barcelona coming up, Son can’t wait to get back to action for Spurs.“This is just the beginning,” he told Evening Standard.“I miss my team. I am happy to be back playing in the Premier League and Champions League. Over the summer, I think I’ve learned a great deal about football.”last_img read more

On Mammals and BtoB Media

first_imgM&A activity is one of the most direct signs of the health of any industry, including media. Why? Because unless it’s a distress situation, if someone’s selling it means they’ve done well. And if someone’s buying, it means they’re bullish about the future. So all of a sudden, there are some interesting deals occurring in b-to-b media that tell us something about its current state and its future outlook. This month alone produced two of the biggest non-distressed transactions in a long time. First, Access Intelligence sold off several pieces, including Chemical Week, SRI Consulting, the market info and price-discovery service Harriman Chemsult and The Energy Daily. Together, the divested assets represented a bit less than half the Access Intelligence portfolio, some sources say. Last week, Apprise Media divested Canon Communications for $287 million. This is a big-time transaction, especially considering the deep, deep freeze in M&A activity in the traditional print-based b-to-b space over the last few years.  And just today, Northstar Travel Media acquired, a media company serving the global corporate travel management market. Founded in 2006, publishes—a quarterly magazine with a circulation of about 13,000—as well as three e-newsletters. A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with some old friends at the U.S. Open that was decidedly pessimistic. We debated whether the b-to-b executives who took over the divested pieces of Reed, Nielsen and other companies were true opportunistic entrepreneurs, or just the same old dinosaurs, only now no longer in the herd. But now, with the recent flurry of transactions, I’m thinking that might not be the right context at all. It may be the b-to-b media—and I mean the traditional b-to-b media, the industry that used to rely almost entirely on trade magazines for its revenue—is gaining strength. If you look closely, most b-to-b media companies are no longer print centric. Yes, it’s true they may get most of their revenue from print media, but these companies have for the most part come to recognize their future is in being something more diverse.Over the last four or five years, media companies responded like this: • Losing advertising revenue? Then create products that produce revenue from readers. • Perceive a need for more industry training and education? Create virtual events and Webinars that supplement live events.• Looking for a way to produce meaningful leads for marketers? Create Virtual events and Webinars.• Looking for ways to exploit your industry-leading databases? Create automated marketing programs for suppliers. • Need a more diverse revenue mix? Create data products and a variety of online information sources. • Lose half your revenue? Do more with less, sometimes much less. I’ve learned from my conversations around the industry that you can be well staffed and still be a mediocre brand, and you can be a very strong brand with a lean staff—and I mean very lean.What these recent transactions are telling me is that there’s a lot of juice left in this industry, and that like the mammals after the asteroids hit, b-to-b media companies are quietly adapting and getting stronger even as they watch the dinosaurs die off around them.last_img read more

Lactalis contaminated baby milk at consumers hands

first_imgActing on instructions from local agent of French dairy giant Lactalis and the Bangladesh Food Safety Authority (BFSA), local distributors of the company’s baby milk formula are scrambling to recall units sold in the Bangladesh market as a precaution against salmonella contamination, reports news agency UNB.According to a BFSA source who spoke on condition of anonymity, and JS International, the local agent of Lactalis, French health authorities concluded 620 batches of the company’s products had to be recalled and banned for consumption and export, equating to almost 7,000 tonnes of goods.Fourteen importing countries including Bangladesh were alerted in this regard.Lactalis believes the contamination happened at one of its drying towers in north-west France in early May this year. As a precaution, it has decided to recall all products manufactured at the site since February 15, 2017 and has shut down the relevant facilities for cleaning and disinfection.On being alerted by the International Network of Food Safety Authorities (INFOSAN), BFSA relayed the information to the Chittagong Port Authority, Customs and the National Revenue Board, one of the earliest agencies encountered by imported goods for tax purposes, and asked them to prevent milk formula produced by Lactalis under the brand names Baby Care-1, Baby Care-2, Baby Care-3, Baby Care MF, Milumel, Picot and Celia, from entering the country.Two godowns used by the local agent to store the products have also been sealed, said Jawadul Haque, partner of JS International.Upon confirmation of the risk by INFOSAN and Lactalis early last month, BFSA on December 14 made a public announcement through different newspapers and ordered the local distributors to recall the product from the market.According to sources, since last July, four batches of milk powder produced by Lactalis were prevented from gaining entry into the country’s market, but another four made it through.Some 24-25,000 thousand cartons (each carton containing 24 units) have thus been imported through these four batches, of which half was distributed in the market, and out of that 30 percent made it into the hands of consumers, claimed JS International.That means 3600 cartons, or 86,400 units of the potentially harmful baby formula have already been sold.Health authorities in France have said 26 infants in the country came down with salmonella in early December after consuming Lactalis products, according to the BBC. They are said to have since recovered.Salmonella symptoms include severe diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting. The illness – caused by intestinal bacteria from farm animals – is dangerous for the very young and elderly because of the risk of dehydration.No case of salmonella poisoning has been reported as yet in Bangladesh, according to JS International. Nevertheless, distributors are recalling the products on their own and sending them back to the local agent.Stating the presence of salmonella bacteria in baby formula as “severely harmful for public health”, scientist and member of BFSA Manjur Morshed Ahmed told UNB that consumers, parents and children doctors have to be advised to avoid the products.As Bangladesh is one of the largest markets for baby formula, BFSA published the public statement to stop the importation and consumption of the products following the Food Safety Act, 2013.last_img read more

ALs juvenile wing leader hacked dead

first_imgA leader of the Jashore unit of Tarun League, ruling Awami League’s juvenile wing, fell victim to a bomb blast and was also hacked to death in the district town on Sunday night.The deceased, Monirul Islam, 38, is an organising secretary of the AL’s juvenile wing. He was a resident of police line area of the town.Santos Ghosh, 36, an activist of the ruling party’s youth wing Juba League, was also injured in the attack.Police and local people said a group of unidentified people threw bombs at Monirul and Santos in Palbari Mor area of the town around 11:30pm on Sunday night.The attackers also hacked injured Monirul with sharp weapons.After the miscreants fled the scene, local people took the two to Jessore General Hospital.Monirul, according to the physicians, died on his way to the hospital while Santos was admitted to the hospital with serious injuries.Jashore’s Kotwali police station inspector Md Shamsuddoha said, “Miscreants hurled bombs at Monirul and then hacked him to death at Palbari Mor. He might have been killed by his rivals over a power tussle in the area.”Jashore Awami League’s office secretary Mahmud Hasan confirmed to Prothom Alo that Monirul was organising secretary of Awami League’s juvenile wing of the district.According to the party officials, Jashore Awami League is divided into two groups. Local member of parliament Kazi Nabil Ahmed leads one of the factions while the district AL’s general secretary and sadar upazila parishad chairman, Shaheen Chaklader, control the members of another faction. Monirul and Santos, the party officials added, were members of Chaklader-led faction.last_img read more

North Korea Fires Missile Which Lands In Sea Off Japan

first_img Share North Korea fired a ballistic missile Friday night which flew longer than any of its previous missiles and landed in the ocean off Japan, according to officials from Japan, South Korea and the United States.There was no immediate announcement of the type of missile. On July 4, North Korea test-launched its first intercontinental ballistic missile in a major step toward its goal of developing nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the United States.Japanese government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said the missile launched Friday flew for about 45 minutes — about five minutes longer than the ICBM on July 4 — and landed west of Japan’s island of Hokkaido.Suga said officials are analyzing whether it was an ICBM. He said Japan has lodged a strong protest with North Korea over the launch.“North Korea’s repeated provocative acts absolutely cannot be accepted,” he said.Japanese public broadcaster NHK said the coast guard issued safety warnings to aircraft and ships.Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he called a meeting of Japan’s National Security Council.South Korea and the United States also confirmed the launch.“We are assessing and will have more information soon,” said Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis.South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile was launched from North Korea’s northern Jagang province.There was no immediate confirmation of the launch by North Korea. The day’s broadcast on state-run television had already ended when the news broke at around midnight Pyongyang time.July 27 is a major national holiday in North Korea called Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War Day.North Korea generally waits hours or sometimes a day or more before announcing launches, often with a raft of photos in the ruling party newspaper or on the television news. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is usually shown at the site to observe and supervise major launches.Late night launches are rare. North Korea usually conducts its missile and underground nuclear tests in the morning. It’s likely the North launched the missile at night and from the remote province of Jagang to demonstrate its operational versatility. To have a real deterrent, it’s important for North Korea to prove it can launch whenever and wherever it chooses — making it harder for foreign military observers trying to detect their activities ahead of time.Yoji Koda, a retired admiral in Japan’s Maritime Self Defense Force, said in an interview with NHK that information that the missile flew 45 minutes and landed west of Hokkaido suggest that it was most likely another ICBM.Analysts say the “Hwasong 14” ICBM launched by North Korea on July 4 could be capable of reaching most of Alaska or possibly Hawaii if fired in an attacking trajectory. It was launched at a very steep angle, a technique called lofting, and reached a height of more than 2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles) before splashing down in the ocean 930 kilometers (580 miles) away.last_img read more

Mens Golf Shows Improvement in the Second Round of the NCAA Championship

first_imgStory Links While the University of Louisville’s men’s golf team isn’t where it hoped it would be, it showed a little toughness on Saturday with a 14-over-par 302 to sit in 28th place after two rounds of the 2019 Men’s Golf Championship at the Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark.After shooting a 25-over-par 313 on Friday, the Cardinals improved by 11 shots for the round, but did fall one spot in the overall standings. The Cardinals are 14 shots off the No. 15 spot needed to be able to advance to the fourth round on Monday.”We still didn’t play the way you needed to play,” head coach Mark Crabtree said. “We definitely improved or scores from the day before, but we’re still not putting the ball where we need to put it on this extremely difficult golf course.”The teams will play their third round on Sunday, with the Cardinals being paired with Duke and set to tee off at 1:50 p.m. CT (2:50 p.m.  ET) in the final pairing of the day. Following Sunday’s third round, the field is cut to the low 15 teams for Monday’s final round of stroke play.Top-seeded Oklahoma State leads the tournament at 10-under-par after shooting 12-under on Saturday. . The Cowboys own a 12-shot lead over second place Stanford on the par-72, 7,550-yard course that is hosting the NCAA Championship for the first time.Not many players have put positive scores up on the arduous golf course through two rounds, but junior John Murphy did on Saturday, firing a 1-under-par 71 to move into a tie for 77th place. He stands at 8-over-par after two rounds of the championship.Shooting a 2-over-par on the first nine holes, Murphy carded a 3-under-par on the front nine. He opened with birdies on No. 2, No. 3, and No. 5, while not recording a single bogey over the final nine holes.”I hit the ball very well,” Murphy said. “I hit the ball where I wanted to today. I felt like I had a good score on this very difficult golf course. I want to come out in that final round tomorrow and do a lot of the same things that allowed me to have success today.”Crabtree was also thrilled to see his talented junior attack the golf course and put together a good score.”The scores were better today, but anytime you shoot under par on this golf course you have played really well,” Crabtree said. “Compliments to John and putting together a nice comeback. I hope he can carry it over to tomorrow and be a great way to end the season.”After shooting a career low 82 on Friday, odds were high that sophomore Matthias Schmid would bounce back and put up a better score, which is exactly what the nation’s top 25 player did on Saturday.
