Man City win to keep perfect Liverpool in their sights

first_imgManchester CityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City clung onto the coat-tails of Premier League pacesetters Liverpool with a hard-fought win against Everton on Saturday after Jurgen Klopp’s men extended their perfect start to the season.Elsewhere, 10-man Tottenham put their recent wobbles behind them to clamber into the top four with victory against Southampton while Chelsea grabbed their first home league win under new boss Frank Lampard.In the early match, Liverpool won their seventh Premier League game out of seven thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum’s fortunate strike in a 1-0 victory at Sheffield United.The European champions looked short on invention against the well-organised Blades until Wijnaldum’s shot from the edge of the box 20 minutes from time trickled between the legs of United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.Liverpool, who have won 16 consecutive league games, finished a single point behind champions City in the Premier League last season but are now setting a searing pace as they chase their first top-flight title since 1990.“For us it was important to win, we had unbelievably big chances,” Klopp told BT Sport.“In the first half we had two big chances and in the second one, which we scored from. These games, they are not all beauties and you have to work hard for the results.”City were under huge pressure to respond in the late kick-off at Goodison Park and took the lead through Gabriel Jesus midway through the first half.But while Pep Guardiola’s men were irresistible going forward, they looked shaky at the back, with makeshift centre-back Fernandinho and Nicolas Otamendi in central defence.Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalised and both sides had further chances to score before a Riyad Mahrez free-kick and a late Raheem Sterling goal sealed a 3-1 victory, which moved City back to within five points of Liverpool.“It’s always difficult here,” said Guardiola. “First half we started incredible, the first 20-25 minutes, then we had problems to control Gylfi Sigurdsson in that position.“But we created from wide areas in the second half and we had the quality of Riyad Mahrez for the goal.“Everton have fast players, they caused a lot of problems at the back, so I’m delighted because we want to go for this league and try to win it again.”– Kane strikes – Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino recalled his big guns for the home match against Southampton, making 11 changes from the side that suffered a shock League Cup exit at Colchester in midweek.Spurs had won just two of their opening eight games in all competitions before Saturday and looked in deep trouble when they were reduced to 10 men.Tanguy Ndombele fired the home side ahead but they suffered a blow when Serge Aurier was sent off after half an hour for two yellow cards.Hugo Lloris then gifted Southampton an equaliser with a goalkeeping howler, Danny Ings dispossessing the Frenchman in his six-yard box and forcing the ball home before Harry Kane restored the home side’s lead shortly before half-time.The 2-1 win lifted Spurs into fourth place in the Premier League, one spot behind West Ham, who drew 2-2 away to Bournemouth after beating Manchester United last week.Pochettino said he was proud of the spirit his side had shown, adding it was an “amazing victory” for his team.“Unbelievable fightback from the team, scoring the goal with 10 men and then fighting all together in the second 45 minutes, keeping a clean sheet in the second half,” he said.Chelsea boss Lampard said his side’s 2-0 home win against Brighton, coupled with a clean sheet, would boost his players’ confidence.Speaking about the crop of young players coming through, he told the BBC: “It is great for the club and a long time coming. The work is done in the academy. The mentality is great. They want to play for this club. At the moment they are earning it and setting a level for others.”Also on Saturday, there was a first league win of the season for Wolves, 2-0 against bottom club Watford, and Crystal Palace were 2-0 winners against Norwich.Aston Villa twice led against Burnley but were pegged back and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.High-flying Leicester host struggling Newcastle on Sunday while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s misfiring Manchester United are at home to Arsenal on Monday.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Forrestdale School Transformed into Entrepreneur’s Marketplace

first_imgBy Emma Wulfhorst |RUMSON – It’s not every day a school becomes a bustling hub of entrepreneurship.But sellers recently packed the Forrestdale School’s cafeteria where over 60 student vendors set up shop, displaying everything from shark’s-tooth necklaces to ornaments to original artwork for the school’s first ever TREP$ Marketplace.The market was the final step of the TREP$ program, a curriculum developed for schools in which fourth- through eighth-graders learn everything they need to know to start their own businesses. Maureen Gordon, a Forrestdale enrichment program teacher, brought the program – short for “entrepreneurs” – to the school after learning about it through an email. “I knew it would be something students would just love to do,” Gordon said. “I know how much they love to create and build.”Gordon approached the Forrestdale administration and asked for permission to make TREP$ a part of the school’s enrichment program for gifted and talented students for the 2017-18 school year. “They said yes right away,” said Gordon and she began the class in September. The TREP$ curriculum was developed in 2006 by two New Jersey mothers after their sons attempted to create their own small business.Forrestdale’s program was open to all fourth- and fifth-grade enrichment students, as well as any sixth-grade students who were interested. The class met one hour a week for the fourth- and fifth-grade students during a regularly scheduled enrichment class. But the sixth graders had to sacrifice a lunch and recess period two times a week in order to participate.“They learned concepts and skills in school through workshops,” said Gordon. During the classes, the students were taught key business skills and terms, including profit, expenses, marketing, brainstorming and creating a plan, all part of the TREP$ curriculum.“A lot of work was also done at home,” said Gordon. Students physically created their products entirely on their own time using their own money or borrowed from their parents to produce the items. However, if students borrowed money, they were required to write up a contract with terms for repaying the loans. Any profits students made could be used to satisfy the loans. If students did not turn a profit, they had to present written explanations of the different lessons they learned during the program.“Most of them really worked on it themselves,” said Gordon about the students’ creation of their products, “but there was a lot of parental support.” Gordon said some of the students even paid their siblings or friends to help them produce, market or sell their goods.According to Gordon, about 95 percent of students made a profit. While most kept the money as a reward for themselves, some chose to donate it to various organizations.Amanda Harmon, a fifth-grader at Forrestdale, made a profit of $150 by selling her beach-themed ornaments, chalkboards and picture frames. “I loved it when people walked by my stand and saw my product and they loved them,” she said. “It really made me feel good to have people enjoy what I made.”“She was focused on doing something beach-themed and using sand,” said Amanda’s mother, Tara Harmon, also the publicity coordinator for Forrestdale’s TREP$ program.Fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders from Forrestdale School in Rumson participated in the TREP$ Marketplace, the culmination of a program which taught them about all aspects of starting and running a business. Photo courtesy Tara HarmonIn total, 16 sixth-graders, 28 fifth-graders, and 21 fourth-graders participated in the program, but Gordon expects a bigger enrollment when she runs the program again. “I already ordered more workbooks for next year,” she said. “I’ve had seventh- and eighth-graders beg me to do it again.”Gordon is overjoyed by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the entire Forrestdale community. “I received numerous emails form parents thanking us, telling us what an amazing learning experience it was for their child,” she said.As a parent, Harmon relished TREP$. “I thought it was pretty awesome,” she said. “It was a great opportunity for the kids to use their creativity and see how a business works.” Harmon is also excited for her daughter to participate again. “She and her friends are already planning what they want to sell next year.”This article was first published in the Jan. 25-Feb. 1, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

LG V40 ThinQ image leaked ahead of October 3 launch

first_imgLG V40 ThinQ is coming. LG is launching its next V-series smartphone- V40 ThinQ- at a special event in New York on October 3 and in Seoul on October 4. Ahead of its official launch, image of LG’s upcoming flagship device has been leaked online.The latest leak comes from serial leakster Evan Blass, who took to Twitter to share the image of the phone.Interestingly, earlier this week a leaked specs sheet of the V35 ThinQ successor, which indicated that the upcoming smartphone would sport a dual rear camera setup with a 12MP and a 16MP sensors on board. However, the image shared by Blass seems to negate this theory by suggesting that LG’s upcoming phone would indeed sport a triple rear camera setup- a feature which the company hinted to in a 10-second long video clip shared in its Korean newsroom.The image shared by Blass is for the US-based carrier AT&T and it suggests that the phone will sport a fingerprint sensor directly above the horizontally mounted triple rear camera setup with an LED flash.Besides this, V40 ThinQ will sport thin bezels on top and bottom with a dual camera setup in the front. The phone will also feature a special button on the left side of the device for invoking Google Assistant just like LG G7+ ThinQ, which was launched earlier this year.As far as specifications are concerned, LG V40 ThinQ is likely to sport a 6.4-inch POLED display with a resolution of 3120×1440 pixels. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and run on the latest version of Andriod Oreo. However, some leaks suggest that the phone could run on the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system-Android 9 Pie.advertisementIn terms of memory, the leaked specs sheet suggested that the phone would sport 8GB RAM, unlike previously rumoured 6GB RAM, along with an internal memory of 128GB. The phone, as multiple leaks seems to suggest, will sport a 3,300 mAh battery.ALSO READ: LG V40 ThinQ coming soon: Top features, expected launch date, India price and everything that we know so farBesides this, V40 ThinQ is likely to feature support for Quad DAC and Stereo Speaker Boombox audio technologies and be priced around $1,000.last_img read more
