Hull complete McGregor deal

first_img McGregor, who spent 14 years with Rangers before his move to Turkey last summer, has won 29 caps for his country. He returned in August 2010 from over a year in international exile after he was dropped over a late-night drinking session with team-mate Barry Ferguson. The pair were then caught making v-signs to photographers while on the substitutes’ bench during a game against Iceland. His move to the KC Stadium, which is subject to international clearance, represents the latest step in City boss Steve Bruce’s efforts to strengthen his defence ahead of the top-flight campaign. Bruce has already signed defender Curtis Davies from Birmingham and given new contracts to centre-back James Chester and full-back Liam Rosenior. McGregor fills one of the club’s primary needs for the new season, with the erratic Eldin Jakupovic and the untried Mark Oxley the only senior keepers previously on their books. Hull took Fulham’s David Stockdale on loan for the latter part of last season. Forward Sone Aluko was quick to welcome his former Gers team-mate to East Yorkshire, writing on Twitter: “Buzzing McGregor has signed for us! Top class keeper and what a guy! Welcome to Hull Greegsy!!” The 31-year-old has signed a three-year deal at the KC Stadium as the Tigers continue to prepare for their return to the Barclays Premier League. McGregor told hullcityafc.net: “I’m really excited to be here and I’m happy that everything is done now. I can’t wait to get started here. This is a great chance for me to play in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to the season ahead.” Hull have completed the signing of Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor from Besiktas for an undisclosed fee.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

The Trojans, however, stayed composed and pulled out their fourth straight win.“We knew the only way they could beat us is from the 3-point line,” USC head coach Andy Enfield said. “They made 11. I give them a lot of credit. They came in, they had a game plan, they had some very good players and they had very good shooters.”Villanova (4-0) also extended its winning streak to four games with an 84-80 win over Delaware on Friday. Forward JayVaughn Pinkston led the way with 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting and pulled down five rebounds.

It might be about Klay Thompson.Lakers fans could be forgiven for California Dreamin’ about landing Golden State’s easygoing sharpshooter, who looked right at home at Staples Center on Monday night, when he effortlessly dropped 44 points in 26 minutes and his 10 3-pointers tied an NBA record for 3-point shooting percentage for a player with at least 10 attempts.Thompson’s performance keyed his super-team’s 130-111 victory.Thompson is a Santa Margarita High School graduate, the son of former Laker and L.A. radio personality Mychal Thompson, and a three-time NBA champion.

His 3-point shooting tied Ty Lawson’s mark for shooting percentage for players with at least 10 attempts.“Never hit 10 threes in a row in a game, that’s hard to do,” Thompson said. “I happened to be on one tonight, and I’m happy I was able to do it in front of my family.”“I don’t think the league has seen that,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Has anybody ever gone 17 for 20 and 10 for 11? Not in that combination … it was spectacular.”“Pretty incredible,” Green said.Kevin Durant shrugged.“Anything Steph (Curry), Klay, Draymond, even (DeMarcus Cousins) do at this point, it’s kind of expected to me,” Durant said. “When he has a big game, I’m just like, ‘All right, let’s move onto the next one, I’m sure he’ll have another one soon.’ It’s still fun to be out there and watch, but at this point, it’s just expected for me.”To Durant’s point, it was Thompson’s fifth career game with double-digit 3-pointers, which ranks behind only Curry’s 12 such games in NBA history. It also was Thompson’s 13th career 40-plus point game.He joked about what Mychal Thompson’s reaction would be when he saw him after chatting with the media: “He’ll probably tell me good job — and you shoulda had 50. Never good enough for your parents, but that’s life.”And — get this, Lakers dreamers — Klay Thompson also mentioned how much Rocco likes staying at his parents’ home: “He likes the sun.”last_img read more

No Ronaldo, no goals as Zidane splits trousers

first_imgZidane’s wardrobe malfunction Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP |Champions League top-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo was a frustrated spectator as his Real Madrid side played out a slow-burning 0-0 draw at Manchester City in Tuesday’s semi-final first leg.Injury prevented the Portuguese superstar from adding to his 16-goal tally and in his absence the visitors were unable to convert the handful of chances they created, with a sensational late Joe Hart save to deny Pepe the closest either side came to a goal at the Etihad Stadium.As an occasion, City’s first semi-final appearance in the competition was a let-down, but by preventing Madrid from notching an away goal the tie’s underdogs safeguarded their hopes of reaching the final ahead of next week’s return leg at the Bernabeu.“We played a very intense game and defended well,” said City manager Manuel Pellegrini.“This season we have played very well away. Now we go to the Bernabeu with the same attitude as playing at home.“Real Madrid must attack a little bit more. You cannot take too much from the first leg. We can see from the second leg who will go through.”Pellegrini, though, will be without David Silva for the second leg after he was forced off by a hamstring injury, while his Madrid counterpart Zinedine Zidane was left sweating on the fitness of Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, who went off at half-time.“I’m happy with the game,” said Zidane, who expressed hope that both his ailing forwards will be fit for the return leg.“We had the ball more in the second half, had a couple of chances. We’re a little bit disappointed, because we possibly deserved more.“Before this game it was 50-50. I think it’s still the same, 50-50.” City’s semi-final arrival was an event seven and a half years in the making for the club’s Emirati owners and there was a carefully stage-managed attempt to generate an atmosphere prior to kick-off, with fans given blue and silver foil flags and a flurry of streamers greeting the teams.The star attraction, alas, was on the bench, glowering in a grey Real Madrid anorak. Ronaldo took his place among the visiting officials after failing a pre-match fitness test on a thigh strain.City seemed determine not to let their guests settle into a rhythm and with Fernandinho setting the tempo for their pressing, they did exactly that.But with neither side able to create any chances, the most notable act of the first half was the departure of Silva after he injured himself in a sliding challenge on Gareth Bale that earned him a booking, which saw 19-year-old Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho join the fray.Benzema, a pre-match doubt with a knee problem, was replaced at half-time by Jese and despite the touchline exhortations of Zidane, who split his trousers for the second Champions League match running, his side could not make the breakthrough.When they belatedly hit the target, Sergio Ramos hanging in the air to meet Toni Kroos’s corner from the right with a firm header, Hart saved comfortably.And when they conspired to beat Hart, Jese looping a header towards goal from Dani Carvajal’s right-wing cross, the crossbar came to the England international’s rescue.City started the second half with a left-foot sighter from Sergio Aguero that whistled over the bar, but they did not threaten again until a stoppage-time Kevin De Bruyne free-kick that Keylor Navas tipped over.In the minutes prior to that, the visitors had started to knock on the door.After Bale had given City a scare by curling narrowly wide from the edge of the box, Hart produced two demonstrations of the razor-sharp reflexes that have come to his side’s rescue so many times on big European nights.First, he stuck out his left boot to deflect away a downward header from Casemiro and moments later a starfish-style block prevented Pepe from snatching a late winner from point-blank range.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Lo Lo Jones Says She’s Sick of Being Slandered, Slammed after Early ‘DWTS’ Exit

first_imgLolo Jones says she felt “broken, unlovable” and “embarrassed” after she was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars” Tuesday night and penned an emotional letter saying she’s sick of being slammed for losing.The former Olympian unloaded on Facebook right after she got the boot from the ballroom saying, “When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me. I’m so tired of feeling embarrassed.”“I joined the other competitors upstairs and I couldn’t force a smile on my face. I felt like vomiting and in between the other dances I went in a back room and fought back tears. I felt so broken. So unlovable. Embarssed.”Jones — who’s been pummeled in the public over her lackluster performances at the Olympics over the years — added, “I really wanted to stay on the show and have the layers of hurt wash away by showing the public how hard I work. I wanted to come away a victor for once. I wanted to do so good performing in public that the haters would stop teasing me.”“But that is my way of thinking. Not Gods. Instead I need to trust God that he would heal my heart. That I would not work so hard for the world to validate and redeem me but know that God already conquered that for me on the cross.”Jones finished her thoughts by adding: “My time was brief but the lesson is lasting. Thank you everyone who wrote me kind messages. You were helping me not fall into darkness.”Yeah, she’s taking this pretty hard.last_img read more

NJ Nonprofits Experiencing Severe Negative Effects of Coronavirus

first_imgHowever, due to the pandemic Brookdale is shifting its focus to a more pressing need: the welfare of its students. Instead of staging an in-person event, they will pivot to a virtual or online campaign designed to raise money to help students who have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to help stabilize students in this time of crisis, Zeiss said. LYNNE WARDThis time of year is usually one of People Pages photographer Lynne Ward’s busiest times as she scrambles from gala to fundraiser covering the many charities, nonprofits and foundations in the Two River area. But the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancelation of all large gatherings and forced everyone to stay at home. This article originally appeared in the April 9th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. Mental health organizations have always been extremely important in Monmouth County and beyond and now the need for mental health access is more important than it has ever been. According to CEO Wendy DePedro, the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County is coordinating with local and state officials to meet the growing needs of the community with the public’s health and safety as their top priorities. The agency has transitioned its on-site staff to remote status, underscoring the importance of social distancing and reducing possible exposure to the virus. Fulfill, formerly The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, postponed its “Shine Light On Hunger” Humanitarian Gala, originally scheduled for March 27, to June 4. Fulfill will continue to monitor the situation and decide as the date gets closer, to either postpone again or cancel. So don’t get rid of those dancing shoesjust yet. They’ll be back in style soonenough. In these days of social distancing and the governor’s order prohibiting group gatherings, charities and nonprofit organizations have been forced to cancel their events for the spring philanthropy season. Some organizations have rescheduled for summer or fall dates, while others have canceled completely until next year. The MHA Annual Dinner and 70th Anniversary planned for May 13 will be rescheduled for later in the year. The annual dinner is one of the most important fundraisers of the year for the agency. “Because of the coronavirus crisis, Fulfill is providing all of our pantries and agencies – including Lunch Break, Parker Clinic and Red Bank’s Salvation Army – free Crisis Relief Boxes, sorted, bagged or boxed and, when needed, distributed, including no-cost transportation to their facilities, for them to give out to our neighbors in need. This has caused Fulfill’s costs to skyrocket. We are spending approximately $200,000 per week and we expect that number to keep climbing. Of course that means Fulfill’s gala will be more important than ever to us this year,” said Fulfill CEO and president Kim Guadagno, the former lieutenant governor of New Jersey. Fulfill is also experiencing a critical need for volunteers to pack the Crisis Relief Boxes with the spike in demand. Anyone who is healthy and can volunteer should email vmartinez@fulfillnj.org. Monetary donations are also needed. Fulfill’s Adopt-A-Family program allows donors to help a local family get through the coronavirus crisis. A $30 donation funds a four-day Crisis Relief Box for a family of four. All donations can be made at fulfillnj.org. “Our students continue to report that they are facing many challenges ranging from lost income, food insecurity and others so we will focus on efforts on raising money to provide direct financial support to them. We have already received a $50,000 donation and we will leverage that generous contribution to ‘challenge’ others to rise to the occasion,” said Zeiss. According to Tim Zeiss, executive director of the Brookdale Foundation and Alumni Affairs, Brookdale Community College has decided to cancel the Brookdale Scholarship Ball slated for June 5 and said that the health, safety and well-being of guests, organizers and staff is the first priority. The scholarship ball is the school’s largest annual event and has always been successful thanks to the support of sponsors, auction donors, attendees and honorees. “We are in the process of reaching out to a wide network of community agency providers as well as individual mental health practitioners to assure there are enough supports in place to help individuals and their families through this current crisis and in the days to come,” said DePedro. There will be an end to this crisis and the charities, foundations and organizations we support will need our help again. In my 16 years of covering Two River People events, spring is one of the busiest seasons for fundraisers. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, every sector of society has been impacted and New Jersey’s nonprofit community has been hit particularly hard. Many students have lost their jobs andare struggling to adapt to the new methodof taking classes online. Some studentsdo not own or have access to a laptop orWi-Fi. The college has responded to thisneed by making 400 laptops available asloaners. The Brookdale Foundation isproviding funding so those students haveaccess to Wi-Fi so they can continue theirclasses. By Lynne Ward Screening tools, specific guidelines and additional resources are available at mentalhealthmonmouth.org or mhanational.org. “Many of the nurses, health care workers, EMTs, police and others who are in the front lines battling this pandemic are Brookdale alumni,” he said. “So, while the campaign is designed to help students, we hope that people will consider donating in honor of those Brookdale graduates who are helping to make a difference.” last_img read more

2018 Virtual Conference Session Recap: Sexual Orientation & Gender Expression Within Families

first_imgBy: Jason M. Jowers, MFTOn September 18-20, 2018, MFLN held their 2018 Virtual Conference entitled, “Cultural Competency: Awareness, Action, and Advocacy. The conference included six interactive webinar sessions that addressed topics such as privilege and power, race, equity, dis/ability, intersectionality, authentic dialog, sexual orientation, gender expression, and health disparities.On the second day of the conference, September 19, MFLN Family Development hosted a session entitled, “Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression within Families.” Dr. Jenifer McGuire from the University of Minnesota was the presenter for this event and shared the research that she and her collaborators have been working on. Dr. McGuire’s engaging session began with an overview of sexual orientation, sexual expression, gender fluidity, and gender roles. The conversation then highlighted working with and advocating for families with diverse family structures, sexualities, and genders. She also explored diverse families and family members within the context of the military experience, including current and historical policy norms. She introduced the Family Gender Environment tool, a measure that has provided insight into the viewpoints of parents and adolescents in diverse families and how they navigate within the topics of sexual orientation and gender expression.Several of the insights of this VC session include:Ways to increase the level of comfort that professionals can have when talking with clients about gender expression and sexual orientation.That the power of family can be a social institution that models societal norms of a larger culture. Families teach children how to socialize but can lead to policing of norms, including those surrounding gender roles and gender expression.That parental reactions to gender variance in their children include acceptance, ambiguity, and rejection. These reactions can co-occur or fluctuate.These parental reactions have huge impacts on family relationships and psychological issues.In a military context, deployments, transfers, and family moving can impact children who are gender nonconforming when they have move to a new base or have to change schools.To be aware of the impact these issues can have on families, but also the importance of family as a safe and affirming place.This session also included ways that professionals can work with diverse families, both military and civilian, and be inclusive of sexual orientation and gender expression issues in their practice.If you are interested in the Family Gender Environment tool and other measures provided by the Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota click here.If you happened to miss this Virtual Conference Session, you can view the archived version of the presentation here. CEUs are still available for credentialed social workers, family therapists, and professional counselors up until September 19, 2019.last_img read more

They will not be able to drive from Marcus Garvey Drive on to Hagley Park Road or on to Spanish Town Road, as is now the case,” he pointed out.Additionally, traffic from Portmore to Half-Way Tree will have to travel along Marcus Garvey Drive on to East Avenue then to Maxfield Avenue and on to Half- Way Tree.Meanwhile, East Avenue will operate as a one-way to the north, and Maxfield Avenue will be converted into a one-way going north from Richmond Park Avenue.Motorists will no longer be able to turn left from Balmoral Avenue on to Maxfield Avenue.A tour of the principal corridors within the Corporate Area road network to which traffic will be redirected was also conducted. This is contingent on the general road works as part of the overall traffic management of the city.Mr. Shaw said only persons doing business in the Three Miles area will be allowed access at all times.He also noted that as of September 9, restrictions will be in effect for persons wishing to travel from Six Miles to downtown Kingston. “You will not be able to travel through Three Miles in the way that you can at this time,” he informed.Mr. Shaw listed several alternative routes for persons wishing to travel towards downtown Kingston, including Washington Boulevard or the Portmore Toll Road.Persons can also turn left from Spanish Town Road on to Penwood Road, on to Bay Farm Road, turning right on to Waltham Park Road where they will travel south along that corridor to the intersection of East Avenue, Maxfield Avenue, Waltham Park Road and onward to Spanish Town Road.Persons can also use the Olympic Way to Mahoe Drive detour to make their way to Hagley Park Road.Chisholm Avenue and Oakland Road will operate as a one-way going west from Balmoral Avenue.New traffic signals have been installed indicating changes to the road network to facilitate work being done in these areas.Mr. Shaw said the NWA will be enlisting the help of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB) to ensure that persons are able to adapt to these traffic changes as quickly as possible.Communication and Customer Services Manager for the National Works Agency (NWA), Stephen Shaw (right), updates members of the media about traffic changes to take place at Three Miles on September 2, during a press conference on August 29 at the agency’s Maxfield Avenue address in Kingston.

As the unit responsible to deal with traffic order enforcement, we are committed to ensuring that we have in place a strong deployment of personnel to manage these changes. You will see an increased presence of the police to ensure order and safety,” he said.
