Van Dijk: Liverpool will ask me about De Ligt if we want himby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool defender Virgil van Dijk admits there’s little talk about Matthijs de Ligt.The Ajax stopper is expected to leave for a major European power, though Van Dijk says there’s been little talk of his Holland teammate at Melwood.He told AD: “It does not work like that. A big club like Liverpool has so many scouts looking around, they will keep an eye on him. “If they want to know something, I’ll hear about it.”Asked how much he would pay for De Ligt, Van Dijk laughed: “Well, less than that for me, hahaha.

When it comes to the Ohio State men’s golf team readying themselves for post-season play, previous experience has proven that preparation isn’t everything. The NCAA selection committee announced May 7 that the team has earned a spot in this year’s NCAA Men’s Golf Regional held in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Buckeyes are coming off a disappointing ninth-place finish at the Big Ten Championship in Indiana, but coach Donnie Darr said the scores posted were no indication of how his team played. “We really weren’t that far off from playing well,” Darr said. “You can’t just walk away and say we played terrible because we actually played really well, we just didn’t finish our rounds off.” Darr said it is important to maintain similar preparation, but the team must limit their mistakes. “I think we prepare the right way every week,” Darr said. “Our guys work hard and play hard, but we just have to stay away from a big number.” And although this year’s selection to the regional tournament marks the second straight under Darr, none of his players have ever played on the University of Michigan Golf Course. “It’s the same design as our course,” Darr said. “But there are significant differences.” Players said they are expecting shorter yardages into the green, thicker rough and narrow openings throughout the course. And Big Ten Freshman of the Year Grant Weaver said he welcomes the challenge. “It’s just about learning from your mistakes,” he said. “You have to pick out what you did good and what you did bad and improve. We’re just trying to put everything together.” Weaver said the team has tackled those mistakes by playing at various local golf courses that will resemble the course in Michigan. And the Buckeyes hope to follow the lead of seniors Alex Redfield and Dan Charen, who could be hitting the links for the last time as collegiate players. But Redfield said he isn’t worried about that. “All I’m worried about is our team finishing in the top five,” he said. “That’s my only concern.” The team will need a top-five finish to advance to the next round of competition. Redfield said he is confident the team has the skills to advance to the national competition and he is excited to make one more run as a collegiate player. “I think we’re going to play well and advance,” he said. “And even if it is my last tournament, I’ve had a great career and I get to go out there and compete with my team and my friends, and I couldn’t ask for anything better.” The Buckeyes advanced out of the regional tournament in San Diego last year, reaching the match play round before falling to top-ranked and host Oklahoma State. OSU is set to compete against 12 other teams in the tournament May 17-19. Purdue is the only other Big Ten school competing in the Buckeyes’ region.

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignDespite an early season loss to No. 5 Oklahoma, Ohio State seemed to be well on its way to another College Football Playoff appearance, beating No. 2 Penn State in a thriller on Oct. 28, 2017. That is, until the Buckeyes traveled to Kinnick Stadium In Iowa City and fell to Iowa 55-24. This season, with another highly ranked matchup with Penn State ahead for Ohio State, here are the games that could be what the Hawkeyes were last season: a trap game.MarylandWyatt Crosher, Assistant Sports EditorNo. 9 Penn State might jump off the page. So might No. 14 Michigan. No. 21 Michigan State even shows up as an opponent to highlight on the schedule for Ohio State.But Maryland? Maryland just slips right through the cracks.Don’t sleep on the Terrapins so soon though. They sit at 3-1, are tied for the third-best record in the Big Ten and have a win over a ranked opponent — 34-29 against now-No. 18 Texas.The Buckeye offense lines up against the Maryland defense during the second quarter of the Ohio State-Maryland game on Oct. 7. Ohio State won 62-14. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignThe offense lives on its running game, with a trio of backs rushing the ball more than 25 times thus far. Senior Ty Johnson, redshirt freshman Anthony McFarland and sophomore Tayon Fleet-Davis have combined for 739 yards and seven touchdowns this season on the ground, with Johnson and McFarland each averaging more than seven yards per carry.Maryland has also found its way through the air with redshirt freshman quarterback Kasim Hill. A four-star prospect according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Hill has been a serviceable quarterback in his first year under center, throwing for 516 yards and three touchdowns with only one interception.For a Maryland offense that lives on the run game, Hill’s stats don’t jump off the page, but they allow for enough of a threat to open up the Terrapins’ run game, which could find more space with the lack of junior defensive end Nick Bosa.It is too early to know if Bosa will be ready for a game in November, but even with him in the game, Ohio State allowed three runs of more than 70 yards, two of which were to an Oregon State team that is far from impressive.The Buckeyes looked like a pass-first offense when redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins ignited against Tulane, while sophomore and redshirt junior running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber struggled to get much going.Maryland offers more trouble in the run game, allowing only 104 yards per game on the ground, No. 19 in the nation.Stats aside, because Ohio State is clearly the better team on paper, Maryland offers the Buckeyes the toughest placement on their schedule.Ohio State travels to College Park on Nov. 17, the second-to-last week of the regular season, in between a road matchup against Michigan State and home game against the Wolverines.The back-to-back road game is the ultimate trap-game trope, and it is the same one Ohio State fell to last year in its brutal defeat to Iowa that cost the team a shot at the College Football Playoff.Michigan State is a large enough opponent to give the Buckeyes a difficult matchup, leaving them vulnerable against the Terrapins a week later. More importantly, the Michigan game the week after takes a lot of attention away from a Maryland game many will see as a pushover before the huge rivalry matchup.The Terrapins have proven their ability to upset strong teams just four games into the season, and have proven to be strong running the ball and strong defending the run.Maryland offers the hardest road game on the schedule strictly by being the game before Michigan and after Michigan State. But it helps that the Terrapins might actually have some weapons to make Ohio State’s in-between game that much harder.PurdueColin Gay, Sports EditorHistorically, Ohio State has never had any issues with Purdue. The Buckeyes have won 39 of 55 matchups against the Boilermakers, winning both games against the team in head coach Urban Meyer’s tenure — a 29-22 win in Columbus in 2012 and a 56-0 beatdown in Indiana in 2013.Based on Purdue’s record through the first four games of the season, Ohio State seems to be on a similar path when it faces the Boilermakers on Oct. 20.Purdue fifth-year quarterback David Blough (11) carries the ball on a quarterback keep during Purdue’s 30-13 win over Boston College on Sept. 22. Credit: Courtesy of Dalani Young | Purdue Exponent Staff PhotographerPurdue has lost three of its first four games of the season, including an opening conference-game loss to Northwestern on Aug. 30. However, a trend seems to be continuing that the Boilermakers began last season. After finishing the 2017 season with a 7-6 record, with one-score losses to No. 16 Louisville and No. 7 Wisconsin, Purdue’s three losses in four games to start the 2018 season have each been by one score and are carrying a plus-9 score differential heading into the fifth game of the season despite posting a record of 1-3.The Boilermakers entered the win column on Saturday, defeating No. 23 Boston College for the team’s first ranked win since beating No. 23 Illinois 21-14 on Oct. 22, 2011. With redshirt senior quarterback David Blough, the Boilermakers have been doing the same thing all season. Blough completed 21-of-28 pass attempts for 296 yards and three touchdowns, extending his completion percentage to 71.6 percent with six touchdowns to one interception. For Blough, it helps to have a receiver like freshman Rondale Moore in the passing game. He led the team in the win over Boston College with eight receptions for 110 yards, bringing in his third and fourth touchdown receptions of the season. Like many teams before it, Boston College could not get its running game going against the Purdue defense. Despite allowing 138.3 yards per game, the Boilermaker defense grants opposing backs an average of 3.6 yards per carry, with the Eagles averaging 3.4 yards per carry on Saturday. Linebacker Cornel Jones has made a major impact in the middle, leading the team with eight tackles for loss, including 2.5 sacks through the first four games. Ever since Jeff Brohm became the head coach at Purdue prior to the start of the 2017 season, the Boilermakers have gone 1-3 against ranked opponents, never losing by more than 18 points to an opponent. After recording a 4-2 record at Ross-Ade Stadium, the Boilermakers are still looking for that signature win for Brohm’s tenure. After facing No. 9 Penn State on Saturday, Ohio State will not have another chance at a ranked opponent until Nov. 10 against Michigan State. If the Buckeyes beat the Nittany Lions on Saturday, Ohio State could have a period of time, with games against Indiana and Minnesota, during which it wins even if mistakes are made. With Purdue’s track record against ranked opponents and its ability to win at home under Brohm, Ohio State must have Oct. 20 circled on its calendar as a trap game.Michigan StateEdward Sutelan, Editor-in-chiefMichigan State has upset Ohio State in some key moments in the past seven matchups between the two teams.The Buckeyes lost to the Spartans for the first time since the millenium flipped from the 1900s to the 2000s in 2011 when Michigan State won 10-7 in Columbus. Two years later, Michigan State kept a previously undefeated and second-ranked Ohio State from a likely BCS Championship Game appearance with a 34-24 upset in the 2013 Big Ten Championship. Another two years pass, and Michigan State, again, kept Ohio State out of the College Football Playoff with a stunning walk-off field goal in Columbus to win 17-14 in 2015, later going on to win the Big Ten.Ohio State sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa (97) sacks Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke during the first quarter of the Buckeyes’ victory against the Spartans on Nov. 11. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignOne thing has remained constant though about the losses for the Buckeyes: they’ve never come in East Lansing, Michigan.Despite winning three of the past seven meetings, the Spartans have not defeated Ohio State in front of their home fans since 1999. In fact, since the first matchup in East Lansing, Ohio State has won 16 of 21 clashes in front of a green and white-clad crowd. Michigan State’s longest home winning streak against the Buckeyes is just two games, while Ohio State is currently running a six-game winning streak.But this rivalry between the two teams has gotten interesting in recent years. Whenever Ohio State has appeared to be a clear favorite, Michigan State always finds a way to make it close or even come away with the upset. No. 4 Ohio State will enter the matchup this year as the heavy favorite over No. 21 Michigan State barring a collapse by the Buckeyes or an unexpected resurgence by the Spartans, who already sit at 2-1 on the year. Michigan State has not looked the part of a dominant team this season. Quarterback Brian Lewerke is completing 66 percent of his passes, but has a 5-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. The running backs are averaging just 3.3 yards per carry and have only scored four rushing touchdowns. However, in previous meetings, Michigan State has almost always been considered the underdog. Rarely, if ever, have the Spartans appeared to be the clear favorite.Yet they seem to always be that one team that gives Ohio State trouble when everything is going right for the Buckeyes. Ohio State has a clear path to a championship? Michigan State seems to get in the way, or at least provide the Buckeyes with a worthy challenge. Even in 2016 when Michigan State entered the Nov. 20 matchup with a 3-7 record and 1-6 conference record compared to Ohio State’s 9-1 and 6-1 marks, it was only a failed two-point conversion with 4:41 remaining and a later interception that kept Michigan State from beating the Buckeyes. On paper, Ohio State should handle the Spartans. The Buckeyes are viewed as a national title contender and the Big Ten frontrunner. The Spartans are viewed as a fringe top-25 team. But in Spartan Stadium on Nov. 10, Ohio State could again be on upset watch.

October saw the activation of the stevedoring tax hike and now government is reminding of the November increase on the pricing of tourism activities. A 12% tack on to the cost of services in 19 new areas, as the Revenue Department in the Ministry of Finance reminds the public that the House of Assembly has approved an amendment to the Hotel and Restaurant (Taxation) Ordinance for these changes to take effect. There is push back from the sector, but it appears that all will go ahead as TCIG planned… as the tax for these designated tourism service providers will apply if the company exceeds a quarterly income of $12,000 or annual income of $50,000. It will be 12% more expensive for services like: water sports, sight-seeing, concierge, fishing, destination weddings, photography and golfing. This tax takes effect next Saturday, November 1st, 2014.

January 10, 1967 was a pivotal day in Bahamian politics and history. In Nassau there will be two controversial gatherings… one led by the Progressive Liberal Party, which is the government today and was the government which ushered in majority rule under the late Sir Lynden Pindling; the other led by Renard Henfield and We March Bahamas which inspired hundreds of Bahamians, in November, to don black in protest of injustices they believe are perpetrated by successive governments. There is criticism for the PLP, as it is widely stated that Majority Rule Day belongs to the people and should not be politicized by the PLP; the governing party denies this. There is push back too on the United People Day March which some say is overshadowing the historic event with negativity, but Henfield says his freedom movement is about upsetting the status quo and uniting those very people. Meanwhile, the University of The Bahamas aims to take the 50 Year commemoration of Majority Rule Day to another level and will host two symposiums and a lecture; those begin on January 12.

She noted those three officers are stable.McNutt detailed that one of the officers suffered a gunshot wound to the face. He was operated on Monday night and will have to undergo additional operations by the hospital’s facial trauma.Another officer who also suffered a face wound and who, according to Acevedo is a 50-year-old sergeant and a 25 year veteran with HPD, won’t require surgery and will likely be discharged Tuesday.A third officer who sustained a knee injury has already undergone surgery by the orthopedic trauma team and will likely be discharged later this week. The HPD chief said he is a 50-year-old sergeant and a 27 year veteran.Another wounded officer is a 33-year-old who, according to Acevedo, sustained a sustained a shoulder gunshot wound and was released from the hospital Monday night.The fifth officer who was wounded in the shooting, specifically on his neck, is still in the hospital and, according to HPD, is in serious but stable condition.Florian Martin/Houston Public MediaThe Pecan Park house where four police officers were shot on January 28, 2019 while serving a search warrant.Acevedo said he is not releasing the names of the wounded officers because of security concerns.The HPD chief explained how the shooting occurred when a group of officers were serving a search warrant at the 7800 block of Harding Street, in Southeast Houston. According to Acevedo, the officers immediately came under fire upon entering the house.Additionally, a pitbull dog attacked them and was killed. Subsequently, a male suspect came from the back of the house and opened fire. An officer was hit on one of his shoulders and went down falling on a sofa in the living room.At that time, a female suspect went towards the fallen officer reaching over him and trying to get his shotgun and that’s when back up officers made entry and discharged their firearms striking the female suspect, after which an exchange of gunfire continued. Both suspects died in the shooting.Florian Martin/Houston Public MediaDennis Tuttle, 59 years-old, is one of the suspects involved in a January 29, 2019, shooting with HPD officers that occurred in Southeast Houston.

The HPD chief detailed they were both white.Florian Martin/Houston Public MediaRhogena Nicholas, 58 years-old, is one of the suspects involved in a January 29, 2019, shooting with HPD officers that occurred in Southeast Houston. She died during the confrontation.Investigators found marijuana in the house, along with a “white powdery substance” that Acevedo said could be cocaine or fentanyl. Additionally, several firearms were recovered: two 12-gauge shotguns; a 20-gauge shotgun; a 22 caliber rifle and a Remington 700 rifle.As is customary in officer-involved shooting incidents in the city limits, the incident is being investigated by the HPD Special Investigations Unit, HPD Internal Affairs Division and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.Mayor Sylvester Turner visited the officers at the hospital Tuesday morning. In a tweet, he praised their bravery and said that one of them had switched careers and had found his calling at HPD, which comes to show the commitment to public service that policemen have.Community tip critical to investigationAcevedo said it was a neighbor’s tip that directed narcotics officers to the house in Pecan Park.He said his thin-stretched department can only do so much to fight crime, which is why a good relationship with local communities — including the immigrant community — is crucial.“We rely on them,” he said. “They’re witnesses, they’re complainants, and we rely on them. And I think thanks to those efforts, those outreach efforts in Spanish and in other languages, our community trusts us.”Acevedo said HPD has worked hard to assure immigrant communities that officers won’t ask about their citizenship status.You can watch chief Acevedo’s media briefing here:Chief @artacevedo gives update @memorialhermann hospital on injured officers https://t.co/G6KlXx42Bw— Houston Police (@houstonpolice) January 29, 2019 Share
Popular on Variety Rice, 53, is a controversial political figure. Conservatives have criticized her over her initial comments about the September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead, which she called “spontaneous.” Critics have accused her of lying and trying to downplay the premeditated nature of the attack. In addition, it emerged last year that as Obama’s national security adviser, Rice in 2016 had requested to “unmask” the identities of certain Americans identified in intelligence reports who had been intercepted speaking with foreign sources — and were linked to Donald Trump’s campaign and presidential transition team.Rice’s appointment increases the number of Netflix’s board members to 11 — and she becomes the company’s fourth female board member. In January, Netflix named Rodolphe Belmer, former CEO of Canal Plus Group, to the board.The other Netflix directors are: Reed Hastings; Anne Sweeney, former president of Disney-ABC Television Group; Richard Barton, executive chairman of Zillow Group and founder of Expedia; A. George (Skip) Battle, former executive chairman of Ask Jeeves and executive at Andersen Consulting; Timothy Haley, managing director at Redpoint Ventures; Jay Hoag, general partner at Technology Crossover Ventures; Leslie Kilgore, former Netflix chief marketing officer; Ann Mather, ex-CFO of Pixar and Village Roadshow Pictures, former Disney exec; and Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer, Microsoft.Rice served as a key adviser to President Obama during his two terms in office. From 2013-17, she headed the National Security Council staff, providing daily national security briefing to President Obama. Before that, she was the U.S. Permanent Representative to the U.N. from 2009-13 and served as a member of Obama’s cabinet.Previously, during President Bill Clinton’s second term, Rice was U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs and was a member of the National Security Council staff. She was a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution from 2002-08.Rice began her career as a management consultant with McKinsey and Co. She has served on several boards, including those for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Bureau of National Affairs, National Democratic Institute, and the US Fund for UNICEF. The Washington, D.C., native is married to former ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron, and the couple have two children. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
