Klopp: I would have paid to lead Man City by four points

first_imgJurgen Klopp says he “would have paid money” to be four points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League after two games against the champions this season.City ran out 2-1 winners in their meeting at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday, moving them back to within four points of the leaders and inflicting a league defeat on the Reds for the first time this season.Defeat saw Liverpool ultimately pass up the chance to go 10 clear of City, something that, in the eyes of many, would have effectively ended the hosts’ title hopes.

As it was, Leroy Sane’s 72nd-minute winner blew the title race open once again, as the German clinched victory after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero’s emphatic opener.Nevertheless, Klopp did not want to focus on the negative, adamant he never thought it possible to be clear of City after playing their two regulated Premier League fixtures.”If someone had told me after both games against Man City that we were four points clear, I would have paid money for it, you cannot believe,” Klopp told reporters.”We are still in a pretty good position so it’s all fine for us. Not in the moment, it feels really bad, but it’s only the moment.”Time to regroup, move on and prepare for the next game. Up the Reds.#WeAreLiverpool pic.twitter.com/TyCTPX7Fcr— Liverpool FC (@LFC) January 3, 2019″I didn’t think it would be possible. Football is like this. If we win this [match] and are 10 points ahead and from that point win no games, then nothing happens. It’s really important we take it game by game.”If we would have won the title five times in the last 10 years, we would say; ‘100 percent [we’ll win it]’. But we don’t have experience in it, so why act like someone who wins all the time?”We never won it as a team so we want to finish the season as good as possible, and that’s alright, we can, we’re still in a good position.”It is all fine for us. Not in the moment, it feels really bad, but it is only a moment. Then we have an opportunity to work on it.”Liverpool looked sharper in midfielder after Fabinho had replaced James Milner in the 57th minute, though Klopp did not feel the Brazilian suited the system he wanted to start the match with.”System wise it wasn’t a real alternative in the beginning and we adapted well after we changed, only because Gini [Georginio Wijnaldum] played really well on the left wing, or half left wing, if you like,” Klopp said.”Hendo [Jordan Henderson] was really impressive, and offensively I think we already had more moments [than City] in the game [before Fabinho came on], that’s what we showed the boys at half-time.”Immediately [after half-time] we were a major threat for them. We came through, passed through, the chance of Sadio [Mane] was great.”There were others moments when we took the ball and accelerated, not immediately passing, because if you can outplay the counter-press every team in the world struggles, even City.”We had these moments and sometimes the cross wasn’t good enough, or the pass – that happens. It’s not about two players [Fabinho and Milner].”You have to constantly work for momentum. That was the game today. There were a lot of really wild moments, a lot of rusty moments. It was really intense for both teams – they won, we lost, that’s how it is sometimes.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Champions League: Not the game we dreamed of, says Klopp after Liverpool draw vs Bayern

first_img Next Champions League: Not the game we dreamed of, says Klopp after Liverpool draw vs BayernChampions League, Round of 16 first leg: It is no accident that Bayern have reached the semi-finals of this competition in six of the last seven seasons and they showed their pragmatic calmness to subdue Liverpool’s normally lively front three on Tuesday. advertisement Reuters LondonFebruary 20, 2019UPDATED: February 20, 2019 08:44 IST Liverpool will take on Bayern Munich in the second leg in Munich on March 13 (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSBayern Munich clinched a crucial 0-0 draw at Anfield in the Champions League last 16 on TuesdayThe result leaves it all to play for in the second leg in Munich on March 13I can’t remember too many clubs who have avoided defeat and kept a clean sheet here: Niko KovacBayern Munich showed all their Champions League experience and quality organisation as they held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their last 16 match at Anfield on Tuesday in a game of few chances and little drama.But the result leaves it all to play for in the second leg in Munich on March 13 when the German side will be without defender Joshua Kimmich who will be suspended after picking up a yellow card.Perhaps it was a case of both sides showing too much respect for the other — certainly both were wary of over-committing in attack — but for fans used to entertainment and drama on European nights at Anfield it was a let down.From the result point of view, it’s OK: Klopp”It is not the result or the game we dreamed of,” said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp.”I can’t remember any chances for either side in the second half. It wasn’t a Champions League night from that point of view. From a result point of view, it’s OK.”It is no accident that Bayern have reached the semi-finals of this competition in six of the last seven seasons and they showed their pragmatic calmness to subdue Liverpool’s normally lively front three.”I can’t remember too many clubs who have avoided defeat and kept a clean sheet here,” said Bayern coach Niko Kovac.”The fact that we managed to restrict them to very few chances shows that we played very well tactically as well as technically.”advertisementMohamed Salah, the man Liverpool look to for moments of inspiration, to create a goal out of nothing, had a night to forget with one of his poorest displays in this competition.Liverpool simply could not find the fluency and rhythm that brings the best out of their forward line although they will be pleased, in the absence of their defensive rock Virgil van Dijk, to have kept out Bayern.Key to that rearguard resilience was the performance from Brazilian midfielder Fabinho, who deputised well in the central-defensive role keeping Bayern’s scoring threat Robert Lewandowski quiet.In midfield, Jordan Henderson delivered an excellent display, especially in the opening 45 minutes, when he broke up Bayern’s attempts to create and also contributed some drive to Liverpool’s forward thrusts.HALF-CHANCESThere were few clear-cut chances in the game although Liverpool created several half-openings in the first period.The first was one of the best they managed — Henderson found Salah, who had snuck in behind Niklas Sule, but the Egyptian’s toe-poke at full stretch was straight at Manuel Neuer.At the other end, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker had to be alert to keep out a mis-hit clearance from Joel Matip that hit him in the chest.Kingsley Coman fired into the side-netting after a sloppy give away from Alisson but that was a rare sign of jitters from either defence.Bayern were content to sit deep after the break and the closest Klopp’s side came in the second half was a diving header from Sadio Mane in the 86th minute which Neuer pushed around the post.This was not a night that will go in the list of great European encounters at Anfield, a fact reflected in a rather flat atmosphere for much of the game, but Liverpool know they still have a chance to progress.”You’re playing an experienced team. They’ve been here and done it for five or six years,” said left back Andy Robertson.”We’ve kept a clean sheet, could’ve scored a couple of goals but the tie is well and truly alive. If we score there it’s crucial.”Also Read | We appeal AIFF to postpone Feb 28 Srinagar match but will go if ‘forced’ to: East BengalAlso Read | Manchester City must win Champions League to be among elite: Ilkay GundoganFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Canada needs a digital ID system bankers association says

first_imgTORONTO — The Canadian Bankers Association says Canada must create a digital identification system, potentially utilizing technology such as blockchain, biometrics and document review over a live video connection.The association’s chief executive says moving away from a paper-based, face to face process towards a modern identification system of this kind is needed to “unlock the full potential” of the digital revolution that is underway.Neil Parmenter added in his speech in Toronto today that the need for digital identification “will only grow more urgent” as Ottawa explores the possibilities of open banking, the payments system is modernized and blockchain and artificial intelligence move into “new frontiers.”The Department of Finance last week officially launched its public consultation on the merits of open banking, a framework that would allow consumers and businesses to permit third parties such as fintechs to access their financial data to provide innovative services.Parmenter says the CBA is calling for a “federated” model of digital identification which would create linkages between federal and provincial systems, which hold information such as social insurance and drivers’ licences, respectively.He says this digital identification system, which the CBA previously outlined in a white paper, could make it possible to authenticate an individual’s identity electronically using multiple digital reference points from different systems.“Instantly verifying who someone is using multiple digital reference points is more secure than relying on a photocopy of a drivers’ licence,” Parmenter told the Economic Club of Canada. “Because this digital network is connected, yet decentralized, the risk of compromising the system is reduced by eliminating ‘honeypots’ of data that hackers tend to target.” The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN chief Guterres highlights importance of sustainable energy in message to EXPO

Underlining the importance of energy, in particular for realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called for urgent action to ensure that everyone has access to clean, affordable and efficient energy so that they can rise to their full potential.“Energy is vital to our lives […] Access to energy helps children to study at night, farmers to grow more crops and hospitals to provide better care,” said the Secretary-General in his message to EXPO 2017, which opened today in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana. In his remarks, the UN chief also noted that the theme of this year’s Astana EXPO, ‘Future Energy’, is all the more important given that energy in today’s world comes from many sources that contribute to climate change. “It reminds us that the world must take urgent action to ensure that everyone has access to clean, efficient and affordable sources of energy […] I hope this EXPO will help us resolve to contribute to more sustainable world,” added Mr. Guterres. Being held from 10 June to 10 September, the World’s Fair EXPO 2017 explores the possibility of scaling up the world’s sustainable energy production, promoting energy security and efficiency, as well as encouraging the use of renewable energy around the globe. VIDEO: UN Secretary-General’s message to EXPO 2017 The UN exhibit, a particular highlight at the EXPO, showcases technology and ideas that help the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through sustainable energy. “Given the urgency of the situation, the focus is going to be squarely on practical solutions,” said Cihan Sultanoðlu, the UN Commissioner-General for the Organization’s participation in EXPO 2017, reminding participants of the simultaneous need to make sure every woman, every man, every girl, and every boy has access to affordable and clean energy by 2030, while keeping temperatures within 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. Several UN entities, including the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the UN Economic Commission for Europe (ECE), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) will host events, release findings and showcase their work on how to mobilize investments to achieve breakthroughs on universal access to energy, renewable energy, and energy efficiency. read more

Man flies with loaded gun in carryon laptop bag airport security missed

first_imgIn order to prevent further events such as 9/11, someone walking on to a plane with bombs in their shoes, or smuggling weapons on to an aircraft, stringent airport security checks have been imposed across the U.S. and at many international airports. One of the most controversial checks recently introduced is the full-body scanner, meant to identify any weapons or bomb parts hidden under clothing.While these checks are meant to identify any threats, as well as making us feel safer, it has been shown that they aren’t working.Farid Seif, a businessman from Houston, regularly carries around a loaded .40 caliber glock with him for protection. But when he was set to travel from Bush Intercontinental Airport last Christmas he forgot to remove the gun from his carry-on laptop bag. You’d expect the airport security screeners to pick this up, but they didn’t, and Farid flew with the loaded gun in his bag at his feet.When he got to his destination Farid realized the gun was in his bag and reported it to the airport. He couldn’t believe it was missed as it was the only thing in the bag. Federal authorities have also stated that this is quite a common occurrence, and that the main cause seems to be human error with screeners simply missing the weapon as it slides by on their display. In fact, up to 70% of tests done at certain airports failed to identify such items.Read more at ABC13.comMatthew’s OpinionYou have to wonder what the point of all these checks are when a security operative not paying attention can miss something so obvious as a gun in a laptop bag. What this screams to me is that the screeners are either not being trained correctly, or the way in which they work is not effective.Staring at a display for a few hours is going to become tedious and you will miss things. I don’t know how the TSA manages switching staff, but hopefully you have a number of screeners that switch every 30 minutes or hourly to stop fatigue setting in. There may also be a need for a second screener watching the work of the first as an added backup.This also highlights a need for more advanced scanning equipment which allows a system to identify suspect shapes and alert the operative to them. An alarm or flashing on-screen highlight would surely wake a person up and get them to check more thoroughly.last_img read more

When I didnt die from my buddy shooting me I knew it

first_img‘When I didn’t die from my buddy shooting me, I knew it was time to get out’ Tommy Byrne, the greatest race car driver you’ve never heard of, tells The42 about his incredible life. 32,899 Views Saturday 3 Dec 2016, 10:00 AM Share6 Tweet Email2 By Kevin O’Brien 3 Comments Source: Crash & BurnSILVERSTONE, 1982IT WAS OCTOBER 1982. Unable to buy his way into the Formula One ranks, like his adversary Ayrton Senna could, Tommy Byrne had earned his shot to drive for McLaren.He had blazed a path through motorsport’s junior ranks, winning the British Formula Ford 1980, British and European Formula Ford 2000 ’81, British Formula Three ’82 championships en route to his first shot at Formula One. It arrived just four years after starting out as a race car driver.An unhappy spell with the uncompetitive Theodore F1 team, which was operating on a shoe-string budget, saw Byrne return to Formula 3 ranks. He won the F3 championship, which sealed a test drive for McLaren, and Byrne viewed it as his best route back to F1.But he felt he had little chance at winning a place on the McLaren team.It wasn’t because of speed. Byrne was fast. Faster than Michael Schumacher and Senna, claimed former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan. But Byrne had insulted McLaren chief Ron Dennis by turning down his previous offer to be a test driver. His cocky attitude also rubbed up some people the wrong way.“I knew two months before that I wasn’t going to be signed because Ron Dennis told me,” Byrne tells The42.“I knew that wasn’t coming. And I knew that all the other drivers were taken. So all I wanted from the test was to go super fast – which I did – and at least get a decent write up in the magazine, which I did.” Source: David Burke/Dot TelevisionDennis didn’t even turn up to watch Byrne drive, but bringing a couple of girls along to the test drive probably didn’t help his case either.Byrne had been out the night before with a friend, and they showed up at Silverstone with two female companions.“I mean, she looked like a whore,” Byrne later wrote about one of the girls in his book. “She wasn’t, but she wore lots of make-up and a skirt that barely covered her arse.”Despite all that, Byrne lapped Silverstone faster than anybody in a McLaren had ever done before. Byrne later found out that the car was tampered with to slow him down, as the team feared he might crash. A friend of his even suggested the official time was slower than those clocked on independent stop watches.“Very few people get to make it. I’m sure if I had a different personality, if I came across not as cocky, maybe possibly I could have gotten something with McLaren. But that wasn’t the way I was.“I got to where I got to…I had a lot of friends,” Byrne continues. “Lots and lots of friends. And again as I keep saying, you don’t get to where you got with no money without having friends.“It’s just who I was and I just didn’t fit what Ron Dennis was looking for. He was looking for a Senna or Martin Brundle – somebody who was easier to control.” Source: Tommy Byrne/YouTubeThe call never arrived from McLaren. “Byrne fast but too cocky,” was the headline in Motoring News magazine. He realised his dreams of making F1 were over.“I was a funny cocky. I’d just crack jokes and people ask me how good I am and everything. I was just funny.center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Dec 3rd 2016, 10:00 AM Senna was the same way, but he was just arrogant. It was just two different ways of going through it. People may have thought I wasn’t serious because I joked around so much.“Laughed and joked and still jumped in the car and did my job. So they were thinking, ‘well he’s not…’ But deep down, underneath…That was just my way of going along.”How would things have turned out differently if McLaren had signed the Dundalk man?“I’d probably be a four or five time world champion. Living in a different place. Probably not here right now.”****MEXICO, 1994Byrne is standing at the bottom of the stairs after hearing gunshots from the bedroom.His friend Ocho, “a playboy, alcoholic, manic-depressive bisexual” appears, fully naked, at the top of the stairway with a gun in his hand.“Hey Ocho,” Byrne says. “¿Qué pasa?”Ocho points his gun at Byrne and pulls the trigger. Luckily for Byrne, he misses. Source: Crash & BurnTwo unclothed girls run down the stairs past the crazed-Mexican, screaming.“Tommy help me, help me. He’s loco. He’s loco.”Byrne runs to his room, locks his door and packs his bags. He never returns to Mexico.“I knew,” he says. “I knew that I had to go. When I didn’t die from my buddy shooting me, I knew it was time to get out. I would probably have died drinking (anyway). God knows what they put in some of it.”After a stint in America attempting to make it as an IndyCar driver, Byrne was offered a job racing in Mexico in 1991. His life quickly spiraled out of control. It was three years of mayhem as he refused to give up on his racing dream.“It was crazy. It was just me and a bunch of crazy bastards. A lot of drinking, a lot of partying. It was at the end of that when I decided I better get my act together and get a job.“You just go along. Every year you think, I’ve still got a chance, I’m still young enough. I can still make a bunch of money in this stuff. Because driving racecars and winning is a great way to get paid.“It doesn’t happen that often in life. Usually it’s hard to go to work and make money. But the second best job is teaching. It’s what I do now.” Byrne’s office in Daytona. Source: Crash & BurnThese days he leads a far more serene existence in Daytona as a race car instructor. But that doesn’t mean he’s lost his need for speed.“I regret (that) I didn’t start mountain biking 20 years ago. That’s my new hobby. I just love it. But I’ve injured myself more in the last year than I have in racing all my life. I fell off and broke my teeth two weeks ago. Broke my finger, broke my collar bone. I do it for fitness and now I’m just going to try and go around it.“As far as racing regrets so I can’t. I’m trying to come up with something. By the way that’s not the first time I’ve been asked that question. You’ve seen the movie. No I’ve been fine. Since I decided to start working for a living in 1994, things have been good.”What advice would he give to a kid that raced around the track like Tommy Byrne?“I wish I could fine one. I’m not being cocky, that really is the truth. It’s just very hard to find. I thought everybody could drive like me, they just didn’t get the chance that I got.“And then I went to America and I started teaching, which is very hard to teach. Because I don’t think it’s that hard to drive, but to try and teach. There’s a place where you break and you turn and you gas, there’s way more to it than I realised. I just did it automatically.“But I thought that everybody could drive like I could. It turns out they can’t and it’s hard to find a superstar. Peter Dempsey was the last great driver that I found.” Michael Schumacher drives past a tribute to Ayrton Senna in 1995. Source: EMPICS SportTommy Byrne did plenty of undesirable things in his life, but there was no denying his talent.“Forget Schuey and Senna,” Eddie Jordan once said. “Tommy Byrne was the best of them all.”Was Jordan right?“I don’t know,” says Byrne. “He said that. Back in the day, if it was a one on one, with me, Senna and Schuemacher, yes I wouldn’t have a problem.“I would have been there right with them. But that’s what Eddie said.”Eight years on from the release of his incredible book, a documentary on Byrne’s life is now in cinemas. In typical Byrne fashion, he pulls no punches when he describes his feelings while watching himself on the big screen.“No fun. It’s embarrassing. I wasn’t expecting this. I just signed up for a documentary I didn’t know it was going to go this far. So it was very hard to watch the first time with a couple of hundred people watching your life story being told. Now I just don’t watch it.”***Crash & Burn is in cinemas nationwide now.  Source: WildCard Distribution/YouTubeNico Rosberg sensationally retires just days after winning the F1 World ChampionshipZaur’s the man!

Buffon rolling back the years in PSG

first_imgLegendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon believes he is “better than five, six or seven years ago”.Buffon swapped Serie A champions Juventus for Ligue 1 defending champions PSG at the age of 40 in the off-season.The veteran shot-stopper helped Juve to seven successive league titles and nine in total during his time in Turin, where he also claimed 10 other trophies.Despite getting to his twilight, Buffon feels he has improved and surpassed his past performances.In an interview with France Football, Buffon said: “If you asked me ‘At age 35, do you feel differently than today?’ I would say, ‘I think I am better’.“Then you would say, ‘Impossible’. Me too. Sometimes, when I come home, that’s what I say to myself: ‘It’s not possible’. And yet, deep within me, I feel better than five, six or seven years ago. I cannot say why. Maybe because I changed my approach.After a day off, it was back to business on Tuesday for PSG ⚽️?Mario Mandzukic, JuventusJuventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.?? #AllezParis pic.twitter.com/9UCsDpHXYe— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) August 28, 2018“After, at my age, everything is a matter of envy and motivation.”“With Alphonse and Kevin [Trapp], we have a very good relationship and for me, even before being partners, they are like brothers,” Buffon said.“Their attitude in the daily work is exemplary and in a team, it is important to have a lot of respect and esteem for each other. This is already a good starting point.“Now, football has changed a lot. A team like Paris Saint-Germain play about 60 matches and I hope that they will play some more than last season. It seems unthinkable to me to have only one holder at the post and therefore logical to have three keepers.”last_img read more

Charlotte, Andre Rollins chided the government and called it a bogus attempt at transparency.Dr. Rollins said the government was not serious about freedom of information, offering as his evidence that some 206 Parliamentary Questions remain unanswered by the PLP Government.   Several of the PLP Members stood on points of order, as MP Rollins tried to dash the seriousness of the bill and exposed loopholes in the draft legislation.The PLP defector also said the Bill gives too much power to the executive branch of government, and makes the process of appealing a refusal of information too expensive.   Dr. Rollins also believes the penalties are too lenient and he labeled the FOIA worthless because there remains no campaign finance legislation to regulate donations to political parties.The bill was still passed and moves now to the Senate for debate.#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provolast_img read more

Youre The Worst star Chris Geere talks Detective Pikachu and wanting to

first_imgActor Chris Geere is at a crossroads. After five seasons, his show You’re The Worst came to an end in April. In the beloved FXX comedy-drama, he played Jimmy Shive-Overly, whom Geere describes as a “really funny asshole.” But starting this weekend, the British actor can be seen in Detective Pikachu, a big-screen take on Pokemon that couldn’t be more different from You’re The Worst.Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular Pokemon and is aimed at kids. You’re The Worst follows the relationship between Jimmy and Gretchen (Aya Cash) in a take that’s simultaneously modern, sloppy, cynical and honest. The series obliterates the tropes of a normal rom-com while addressing topics like sex, depression and cynicism.I got to talk over the phone with the boisterous and hysterical Geere about playing Jimmy, filming the most ridiculous sex scenes on TV and wanting to be Doctor Who.Below is an edited transcript of our conversation. 2019 TV shows you can’t miss 2:24 What was your reaction when you first got the script for the film?This is going to be fun. Because it has a bit of comedy, and a bit of adventure. My son watches the cartoon, and he’s 6. And obviously, he has never seen anything I’ve done before. It’s not really that wise to set a 6 year-old down to watch You’re The Worst. “And this is daddy against the pool table with someone who isn’t mommy.” There was a massive draw in knowing I could share that experience with him. And hopefully I am going to be the cool dad at school.What kind of roles would like to play that you haven’t yet?I would love to be Doctor Who. That’s my big dream. Failing that, a big villain. I’d love to play a character that seemed friendly and harmless and then turned out to be an absolute psycho. But I’m thinking in 2023 I’m going be the Doctor. Originally published Thurs. May 9 at 5 a.m. PT 0 50 Photos Post a comment Tagscenter_img When you first got cast on You’re The Worst, what were your impressions of Jimmy? And how has that changed over the five seasons?My first impression was, he’s a really funny asshole. I love the fact that he was such an idiot. He seemed to have brains but not necessarily any common sense and I thought that was hilarious. As the show progressed, I went through what the fans went through: I loved him at some bits, I felt sorry for him at other bits, and I hated him lot of the time. It was always quite tricky to find something I liked about him when everything he did was disgraceful, but that was part of the challenge and enjoyment of the job.What was your biggest surprise from the viewers of the You’re The Worst?Probably it goes back to the depression storyline. People were impacted by it. They were comforted by it. The impact highlighted how important it is. I will always look back at that as what really put us on the map. I’ve had great conversations with people who watch the show all over the world and everyone says the same stuff which is, “Oh my god I find the character so relatable.” My first instinct is, “Really? Oh dear.” Over the course of the whole show, I’ve realized we all have a bit of Jimmy, Edgar, Gretchen in all of us. It’s just whether we choose to talk about it. Whether we chose to express that side of us. I felt like I was in a scene from Die Hard but with Pokemon all around the room Chris Geere Share your voice How has your view of love changed from playing Jimmy on You’re The Worst?Jimmy and Gretchen complicate it way too much for themselves. Society makes you think you should be married by a specific age. And you should have this many children and you should live here… when actually what you should be doing is finding someone who makes you laugh and that you get on with and then not wondering whether you’re going to be with them in 10, 20 years time. Just hope that you’re with them tomorrow. I think that is what I have taken from the show. Love is far simpler than we give it credit.Shifting from love to sex. The sex scenes in the show are ridiculous. What’s it like to film them? And what do they add to the relationship between Gretchen and Jimmy?Six minutes into the pilot they were having sex. We already flipped the romantic comedy on its head, because now that they’ve done that. They’re not building up to anything. Shooting that first episode was filled with nerves. Towards the end of the show, we had a respect and understanding for each other that made it kind of easy rather than terrifying.Sex was always written in a rather funny way. I remember the scene where she said, “I want you to slap me in the face.” Then he slaps her in the face too hard, and she starts hitting him back and everything. Sex is really funny and you should be able to laugh at it. It shouldn’t be the kind of the choreographed Sharon Stone-esque moves. It’s dirty, it’s awkward, it’s weird. Sometimes you still wear your socks. I think You’re The Worst was really good at that. Whether that be in a bed, or up against a pool table, it’s just something that they do. They’re very sexual people.The obvious segue from this would be to start talking about the film Detective Pikachu.Of course. From sex to Pokemon.Who do you play in Detective Pikachu?I have to be careful here. I have a very cool role that’s featured throughout. I got to do some very, very cool stuff. I got to wear some cool things. There’s a scene I had to shoot with a wind machine, which to date has been my most fun on set ever. I felt like I was in a scene from Die Hard but with Pokemon all around the room.

Super cop who questioned Dawood Ibrahim says Don confessed to crime

first_imgDawood IbrahimThe super sleuth who interrogated India’s most wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim has finally penned a book revealing the don was an ordinary looking coward person, who confessed that he was involved in (organised) crime.Former Director General of the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, BV Kumar, also known as the super sleuth of Indian customs, has revealed in his new book ‘DRI and the Dons’ that initial whereabouts of Dawood Ibrahim was disclosed to him by one Rasheed Arba, an alleged underworld figure married to the sister of famous Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar.Speaking with the IANS, BV Kumar said that purpose of writing the book on underworld dons, particularly on Dawood Ibrahim and Haji Mastan, was to showcase DRI’s matchless contribution in initiating tough action against most dreaded underworld syndicates of South Asia.”We were the key agency to detain and interrogate Dawood Ibrahim and book him under COFEPOSA. When I got Dawood detained (in July 1983), a petition came up in the High Court of Gujarat for an immediate hearing. On don’s behalf, Ram Jethmalani had appeared to get Dawood released from detention,” Kumar said.Dawood Ibrahim, who later jumped bail and escaped to Dubai is still wanted by the DRI under the COFEPOSA case registered by BV Kumar.Kumar is one among a few Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officers who led DRI as well as Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and had a wonderful career in which he crushed the notorious underworld syndicates of Mumbai.Remembering his encounter with Dawood, Kumar said that he was posted as Customs Commissioner in Ahmedabad in the mid-eighties. During that period a bloody gangland shootout between Dawood Ibrahim and Karim Lala gang had created a scare in the society, affecting peace in Maharashtra and Gujarat.Kumar writes in his book that one day while returning from Porbandar to Mumbai by car, Dawood was accidentally hit by a bullet fired by his aide, sitting in the rear seat of the vehicle. The shot was actually aimed at Alamzeb, D-company’s gang rival owing allegiance to Karim Lala.In his book, the former IRS officer reveals that the bullet had hit Dawood in the neck, but the injury was minor. The don was taken to Baroda’s Sayaji Hospital. “I was informed about the incident and I immediately spoke to PK Dutta, the then Commissioner of Police, Baroda.Later during interrogation, Dawood admitted that he was doing ‘number do ka dhandha’ (involved in illegal activities). He was talking to me in Hindi. I found him as an ordinary person who looked calm. The interrogation continued for half an hour at Dutta’s office. I then returned to Ahmedabad and obtained a detention warrant against Dawood under COFEPOSA,” said Kumar.When asked how Dawood managed to become one of the most dangerous underworld dons in Asia, Kumar said that lack of political will seems to be the biggest reason for this.”Dawood used his money power to lure everyone. From Bollywood stars to cricketers and maybe some big politicians. But I am of the view that once India signed the extradition treaty with the UAE, the underworld lord was compelled to leave Dubai and take permanent refuge in Pakistan.He is no more as influential as he was in the UAE “where he was rubbing shoulders with celebrities,” he said.Kumar said he presumes Dawood is not well these days and might remain in Pakistan till everything is over for the fugitive.last_img read more

Doing the Cupid Shuffle in the Name of Good Health

first_imgBy Hamil R. Harris, Special to the AFROThe First Baptist Church of Glenarden has been hosting health fairs for 25 years and to mark this year’s occasion, the Rev. John K. Jenkins and his first lady didn’t mind doing the Cupid Shuffle, by Lafayette, Louisiana singer Cupid, in a pulpit normally reserved for more serious expressions of worship.Last Saturday the Jenkins kept in step with fitness queen Donna Richardson who went from dancing to preaching at the Upper Marlboro church where more than 2,000 people came out and took part in health screenings, cooking demonstrations and even did the Cupid shuffle “in the name of Jesus.”Greeters and guests at the 25th Annual Health Fair at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden. (Courtrsy Photo)“We are trying to help people live longer and better,” said Reverend Jenkins who added that over the years the annual event has actually saved lives.  “We have had people discover that they had cancer and because it was detected earlier enough it prolonged their life and we are grateful to God.In keeping with the theme-Bold Radiant Reflection of God- Mellissa Johnson, director of the church’s Health Ministry, was proud to be dressed in a glitzy silver pantsuit that she said was inspired by Luke 11:36 which reads “If your whole body is full of light and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”“God’s Light reflects on us and we reflect that light back to earth,” Johnson said. “We want everyone to come and see the light so that we can show God’s light to the world.”From the “Man Cave,” where men were being screened for prostate cancer, to a section for women to be checked for breast cancer, to every part of the main level of the church, there was some type of health related event. In one section people could even walk through an air filled colon to look at polyps that could be inside their small intestine.“You have to make a commitment,” Richardson told the gathering.  “How can you take care of business if you are sick in bed. Make a commitment to start. Isn’t gluttony a sin?”But Stanley Johnson, Chief of the Prince George’s County Division of the Maryland National Capital Police showed that working out can be fun. He and his son were giving out golf lessons near the main entrance to the building.Kimberly Covington, a nurse in the Prince George’s County School System, said events like the health fair is good for young people. “It is so important to show them what they need to be and not just tell them.  Whether we are eating properly or living for Christ it is about living your life holistically in the correct way.”last_img read more

The Side Characters Hold Up Jesses End of the Bargain on Preacher

first_imgWe love the attitude Eugene! #Preacher pic.twitter.com/7iqNiDrJ0t— PREACHER (@PreacherAMC) July 30, 2018As exciting as that sounds, that’s all we see this time around. Way to be a tease, Preacher. We finally catch up with the best story arc from last season, and all you give us is three minutes pre-credits? The show has some fun with Eugene’s eternal optimism bouncing off the Saint of Killers’ gruffness. It’s funny, and I wish the episode had more of it. On the bright side, that’s pretty much exactly what Cassidy’s story gives us more of.Over in New Orleans, Cassidy wakes up in the basement full of wannabe vampires. And, it turns out, one real one. They’re all following a single vampire dedicated to keeping up the traditions of the night. Whatever that means. He even proves it by swallowing an owl whole, because we’ve gone too long into the episode without something upsetting happening. We learn that The Grail didn’t just drop Cassidy off with these people. They found him after his encounter with the vampire fetishist in the diner. They stole him. That makes more sense than The Grail just letting him go after one video. I just wish they told us that when it happened, rather than leave an awkward plot hole they’d have to fill in later.Adam Croasdell as Eccarius (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)It leads to the best storyline Cassidy’s had all season, though. He’s been a mopey drag for a while now; it’s nice to see someone push against that. The vampire cult leader takes him on a flight through the air to remind him that being immortal can be fun. He shows off more when Cass takes him into a bar and fails to pick up an attractive woman. The leader beckons her over with a Dracula-style hypnotic command, and makes out with her dad a bit too… then he turns into a cat just before things get awkward. So where does he get this power? By turning his followers, with their permission of course. That still doesn’t sit well with Cassidy, though. Not after what happened with Dennis last season.New Orleans may have turned into kind of a slog last season, but it’s a welcome change of scenery this time around. Turns out, it’s a fun setting when we’re not dealing with Jesse’s hopelessness or Tulips paralyzing fear of the Saint. Cassidy’s depression is part of what makes him such an interesting character, but it’s cool to see him meet his opposite. It’s fun to watch him react to a vampire who doesn’t think the life is an endless parade of sadness and loss. Even if that means looking like a Lestat fanfic come to life. Cassidy sneering at the naive joy of this group was the best part of the episode, and it looks like there’s going to be more of it. After a truly depressing phone call with Tulip, where they can barely even talk anymore, Cassidy decides to stay. For now. We’ll see where this story goes. Probably, the whole thing will turn out to be shady as hell, but I’m so grateful for something new, I’m all the way on board for wherever the ride takes us.Betty Buckley as Grandma, Colin Cunningham as TC – Preacher (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)We check back in with Jesse back in Angelville for the episodes least interesting plot. Killing Grandma didn’t work. Now, Jesse needs to keep her alive to keep Tulip alive, and Grandma’s health is failing. They need to rob a bank to get what they need to nurse her back to health. Specifically, they need to rob Madame Boyd’s deposit box full of souls. Fortunately, they have an expert bank robber who’s already got a plan worked out and everything. It involves a blonde wig, which has never looked quite as badass as when Ruth Negga’s wearing it. They hold a fake funeral for Tulip to convince the Boyds that she and Madame L’Angelle really are dead.. The heist is fun, with Tulip playing the wide-eyed new customer opening a safety deposit box. What she’s really doing is staking out the place, including setting off the silent alarm to test police response times.The part where the safety deposit box scanner is saliva-based is so stupid, but I kind of love it. It’s ridiculous and gross, and a fun quirky detail in a story that could really use more of them. I do wish we’d seen more of the heist. We see the end result of Jody and TC’s violent cop distraction, and I guess the rest of the robbery went off swimmingly after that. Even if it did go off without a hitch, seeing it would have made for a better episode. Who doesn’t love it when a plan comes together?Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Jeremy Childs as Jody, Colin Cunningham as TC, Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)The episode tries to raise the stakes of Angelville and really make it feel dangerous at the end, and it almost works. Jesse and Tulip are knocked out and captured, but they wake up, and things aren’t really that much worse than they were before. We do see Madame Boyd get her soul extracted for L’Angelle, which is pretty scary. Jesse arrives in time to save her from The Tombs by putting a bullet in her head. Jesse promises to pay off his debt and get out of there while Tulip remains tied up, her fate unknown. It’s a disappointing place to leave this story. We get the sense that we’re meant to be scared now. That we’re meant to think something has changed and the stakes have been raised. We’re just not given a reason why. There’s nothing to indicate that Jesse and Tulip are in a remarkably different place than they were at the end of last week’s episode.Good thing The Grail exists, then. If Cassidy’s was the most interesting story of the night, Starr’s was the most fun. In terms of tone, it was the most true to the Preacher comics. Particularly with Herr Starr’s new head-wound that, as The Allfather points out, makes his head look like a penis. This section is where the show gets to revel in the weirdness of its premise and really go for it to gross us out. The Allfather is a wonderfully disgusting villain, but the show instantly lets you know why you should fear him. Starr describes a punishment an underling received for stealing The Allfather’s hot pocket. We see all the gory details of the Allfather sitting on a man’s head until it pops. Imagine, he says, what the punishment for mutiny would be.Pip Torrens as Herr Starr, Jonny Coyne as Allfather (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures TelevisionThe Allfather’s danger is sold further by Starr’s clear fear and nervousness around him. Pip Torrens is phenomenal in this role. If he can convince me that Starr is scared of this guy, I’m going to be scared of him too. And grossed out, of course, because that was also the goal of a character who spends a prolonged shot vomiting into a bucket. The scene even does a better job of raising the season’s stakes than whatever happened with Jesse and Tulip at Angelville. Since tap dancing is apparently enough of a miracle for The Allfather, he wants to get Armageddon going as soon as possible. That, to Starr’s surprise, means nuclear war. The world will have to be consumed by fire, he says, to prepare for the second coming. Oh, and The Allfather knows about Jesse Custer. 11 Forgotten Vertigo Comics That Would Make Awesome TV ShowsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History The Angelville storyline on Preacher hasn’t quite lived up to what it was in the comics. It’s certainly come a long way since the first episode, but it still feels like it’s just running in place, waiting for the rest of the plot to carry it forward. Fortunately, that’s what started to happen this week. Jesse and Tulip’s story was OK, but what really made the episode work was its focus on side characters. Cassidy, the vampire kids, Starr, the Allfather… though juggling all these stories led to a somewhat disjointed episode, the disgusting detours and pure character-driven scenes made for a fine midseason entry.For its cold open, the episode checks us in with someone we’ve been wanting to hear from since episode one. Arseface/Eugene apparently wrote off Hitler’s escape as a lost cause and went home. Well, to what was left of his home. Surprisingly, he’s not all that devastated about the complete destruction of the town. It’s not like there were a ton of fond memories there anyway. In fact, it’s given him a newfound faith in God. If he hadn’t been unfairly sent to Hell, he would have been killed too. Now, he’s in an orphanage where his bunk-mate isn’t on board with his newfound religion. But he’s not there for long. He’s quickly adopted… by the Saint of Killers. Well, freedom was nice while it lasted. Next stop: Grab Hitler and go back to Hell. Stay on target See, that’s how to bring these disparate plot threads together in a satisfying, intriguing way. If only the show could figure out how to make the Angelville scenes that compelling. No matter what though, the season is certainly picking up now. Jesse needs The Grail to pay his debt to Madame L’Angelle, and Starr needs Jesse to stave off nuclear armageddon and the installation of Jesus’ inbred spawn as puppet dictator. Overall, the episode was uneven, like we were watching three separate shows haphazardly stitched together. But that one scene between Starr and Allfather at the end brought most of it together, and made sure it didn’t feel entirely disjointed. Cassidy’s story, despite being the best of the three, still feels like an only semi-related b-plot though. Who knows? Maybe next week’s episode will find a cool way to fold it in.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Fitch New CFPB Rules Will Increase Compliance Costs

[IMAGE][COLUMN_BREAK]According to a commentary from Fitch Ratings, these new rules, if implemented, would set consistent standards for residential servicers, but the rules “”will also further increase compliance costs for the industry and potentially drive further consolidation within mid to smaller servicers.”” The ratings agency stated one key change with the proposed CFPB rules is that it applies to banks and nonbanks of all sizes and types, and for smaller institutions, the impact of compliance costs is believed be even greater compared to the largest banks. “”As such, Fitch believes these changes have the potential to drive further consolidation and uncertainty in the industry as larger entities scale down their presence due to increased scrutiny and compliance risks, while smaller entities exit due to higher compliance costs and insufficient returns,”” the commentary stated.center_img August 14, 2012 409 Views Fitch: New CFPB Rules Will Increase Compliance Costslast_img read more
