‘Do you want to win the league Manchester City? Sign John Terry in January’

first_imgHarry Redknapp believes Manchester City would win the Premier League if they signed John Terry in the January transfer window.The Chelsea captain has been used sparingly this season under Antonio Conte as the Blues sit seven points clear at the top of the table.Terry started all four of his side’s opening league games before losing his place in the team, following a change of system and the return of David Luiz to west London in a deadline day transfer.And with Pep Guardiola’s City struggling to keep clean sheets, Redknapp has urged the former Barcelona boss to consider a move for the 36-year-old.“I’m still a great John Terry fan. What he can offer in the dressing room and on the pitch, I think he’d be fantastic short term,” Redknapp told the Jim White show on talkSPORT.“Do you want to win the league? I’ll tell you what I’d do; go and take John Terry for a season. Play him at the back with Stones – he would learn so much from playing with John Terry week in week out.“They took Frank [Lampard] who was a legend at Chelsea, I’d take John Terry all day for a season, he’d do fantastic for them.“Arsenal would take him, he could win the league for anyone. Tottenham don’t need him, their centre-backs are strong at the back. He’s worth his weight in gold. Get someone alongside him with a bit more pace.“John Terry reads the game, he’s a leader, he’s a winner, he’s good in the dressing room, he’s a captain – I’d have him all day long.”City have kept three clean sheets in the league this season and have been without captain Vincent Kompany for the majority of the campaign, with the Belgian suffering numerous injury setbacks.That has left summer signing John Stones playing alongside Nicolas Otamendi and other makeshift partners in the centre of the Citizens defence. And Redknapp believes that the Manchester club need to make defensive reinforcements to educate the 22-year-old.“When Man City have [Vincent] Kompany playing they’re a different side – there’s no doubt – their record will tell you that.“Three or four of the top teams, the back-fours don’t fill you with a great deal of confidence. There’s obviously a shortage of great defenders. Going forward, they have a lot of good players and they look excellent, like most of the other teams in the top six.“I’m a big John Stones fan and I’d have him in my team – but it’s finding a partner for him – whether they go out in the window and get a [Jose] Fonte or a [Virgil] van Dijk, they would be top of my list of the players who are playing in this country at the moment.”last_img read more

It was a scary time.“But everyone around me was really supportive and I think it’s good to talk about it just to get it out my system.“And to make others aware.

Where the Startups Are, By Zip Code

first_imgTags:#Analysis#start audrey watters As part of our “Never Mind the Valley” series here, we often feature communities outside the Silicon Valley that have become thriving centers for entrepreneurship. We’ve profiled cities like Boston, Montreal, and Austin.Sometimes we notice there’s a flurry of startup activity in a particular location that warrants coverage, and sometimes we’re pitched stories about these locations. (And you should feel free to pitch us as to why your city should be featured, particularly if you’re outside the U.S.) But as great as these sources for stories are, neither offer any sort of scientific method for pointing to the cities that are the best locations for startups.In a blog post yesterday, VC Brad Feld wrote about the “entrepreneurial density” of Boulder, a city often noted as being a startup hotbed. He writes,“Entrepreneurial density isn’t just the “number of entrepreneurs per capita”, but it’s the “number of people that work at entrepreneurial companies per capita.” It gets even bigger when you include students and calculate the “(number of people that work at entrepreneurial companies + the number of students) per capita. As ED = ((entrepreneurial_emps + students) / adults) approaches 1, you get complete entrepreneurial saturation. I’m going to guess that Boulder’s Entrepreneurial Density using this equation is somewhere between 0.50 and 0.75, but this is just a guess. I’m curious if anyone out there has a real way to calculate this.”Responding to the challenge is Pete Warden, who has used Crunchbase and US Census data to provide an answer.According to Warden’s figures, the top zip codes for money raised per person are:CA 94104 – $629m total – $1,681,925 per personCA 94304 – $2,822m total – $1,656,031 per personCA 94105 – $972m total – $472,540 per personMA 02142 – $1,013m total – $448,833 per personIL 60606 – $739m total – $439,744 per personAnd the top zip codes for company per person are:CA 94104 – 87 companies – 0.233 per personCA 94105 – 173 companies – 0.084 per personCA 95113 – 24 companies – 0.044 per personMA 02142 – 73 companies – 0.032 per personMA 02210 – 19 companies – 0.032 per personUsing his OpenHeatMap tool, there are, of course, maps of the information. And Warden has open-sourced the code and the data so that others can work with it.Warden admits that it’s a “crude approach,” but nevertheless, it’s interesting to see how the numbers may or may not patch our perceptions of entrepreneurial hot spots. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more


Officials discuss Rocheport I-70 bridge funding plans

first_img(Missourinet) Local and state officials this week discussed the best way to fix up the Missouri River Bridge at Rocheport.The bridge either needs to be replaced, or it needs a big rehab that would cause major delays on I-70.MoDot’s Patrick McKenna says the governor’s $350 million bond plan for bridges would not go toward a replacement, but it would make the state eligible for matching federal INFRA grants that could cover it.“What we are doing is using the governor’s plan as kind of a Hail Mary,” McKenna said. “It makes us eligible to participate in this INFRA grant, and in a competitive way.”The Missouri House budget does not include the Governor’s bond idea. It sets aside $100 million in general revenue for roads and bridges. McKenna says that’s not enough to make the state eligible for the federal grant.last_img read more


Sunnybrook Cuts Costs and Meets Density and Power Requirements with Intel® Xeon® Processors

first_imgDownload NowCaring for a million patients a year, Toronto-based Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre faced rising demand for services—but its main data center was reaching capacity. By virtualizing on Intel® Xeon® processors 5600 series and upgrading the data center’s cooling technology, Sunnybrook doubled the number of racks its data center can support and significantly reduced energy consumption. Sunnybrook saves tens of thousands of dollars each year on electricity costs and earned a one-time Data Centre Incentive Program (DCIP) incentive award of CAD 33,360 from its utility provider, Toronto Hydro Electric System Ltd.“Our ability to consolidate more virtual guests on fewer physical hosts has increased, not only because of software advances, but because of Intel’s advances in multi-core performance,” explained Oliver Tsai, director of information technology for Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. “The net result is that we’re able to pack a tremendous amount of compute power into a very dense server rack setup in our renovated data center.”To read all about it, download our new Sunnybrook business success story.last_img read more

first_imgManchester United striker James Wilson has joined Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion on loan for the rest of the season, the second division club said.The 19-year-old has made only two appearances for United this season, coming on as a substitute in the 3-0 defeat by Arsenal on October 4 and starting in the Capital One (League) Cup loss to Middlesbrough on October 28.Wilson joins a Brighton team that are unbeaten in the Championship this season and lie second in the table, behind Hull City on goal difference.”We have been keen to add a striker, and James has been our number one target for some time, so we are absolutely delighted to have completed the deal,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton told the club’s website.”He is an exciting young striker, and we hope that this move will prove to be very good for all parties involved.”He is very highly thought of at Old Trafford and he has been in and around the first-team picture at Manchester United since Ryan Giggs gave him his debut the season before last.”I now hope he will help us maintain our excellent start to the season, and bring additional goals to the squad.”Wilson is contracted to United until 2019.last_img read more


African football legend Samuel Eto’o not eyeing politics for now

first_imgSamuel Eto’o is up there with George Weah as an African great on the football field, but he says he has no plans to follow the Liberian into politics “for the moment”. “Everyone wants me to go into politics, but there won’t be 10 million Weahs,” Eto’o said in an exclusive interview with AFP. Weah, the only African player to win the Ballon d’Or, became president of Liberia in January 2018. “Everyone is born with their own star. Everyone at some point gets involved in politics at their own level, but, for the moment, it doesn’t interest me.” The 38-year-old Cameroon legend recently brought the curtain down on a glittering playing career during which he won the UEFA Champions League twice with Barcelona and once more with Inter Milan. An idol in his homeland, Eto’o gave his backing to Paul Biya — who has ruled the country for 37 years — before his re-election in 2018. Biya is 86 and is dealing with a major crisis in Cameroon as a two-year secession drive by anglophone separatists has claimed thousands of lives. Main opposition leader Maurice Kamto walked free from jail earlier this month after a military court ordered his release at Biya’s behest. Of his supposed political ambitions, Eto’o added: “A lot of people might be saying that it’s an idea I have, but I say to them it doesn’t exist in my mind at the moment. “But every citizen has the right. If you want to stand, nobody is going to stop you. But in our country it is as though it is something reserved for certain people. Personally it is not an objective.” The two-time Africa Cup of Nations winner says he wants to move into coaching, although he has also taken a role with the Confederation of African Football. “My role is to lobby the different federations to convince them to adhere to the work being done by president (Ahmad) Ahmad,” he said.

Being socially active linked to lower dementia risk

first_imgBeing more socially active in 50s and 60s is associated with a lower risk of developing dementia later on, a new research has found. “People who are socially engaged are exercising cognitive skills such as memory and language, which may help them to develop cognitive reserve – while it may not stop their brains from changing, cognitive reserve could help people cope better with the effects of age and delay any symptoms of dementia,” said senior author Gill Livingston, Professor at University College London. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe research, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, used data from the “Whitehall II” study, tracking 10,228 participants who had been asked on six occasions between 1985 and 2013 about their frequency of social contact with friends and relatives. The same participants also completed cognitive testing from 1997 onwards, and researchers referred to the study participants’ electronic health records up until 2017 to see if they were ever diagnosed with dementia. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardFor the analysis, the research team focused on the relationships between social contact at age 50, 60 and 70, and subsequent incidence of dementia, and whether social contact was linked to cognitive decline, after accounting for other factors such as education, employment, marital status and socioeconomic status. The researchers found that increased social contact at age 60 is associated with a significantly lower risk of developing dementia later in life. The analysis showed that someone who saw friends almost daily at age 60 was 12 per cent less likely to develop dementia than someone who only saw one or two friends every few months. They found similarly strong associations between social contact at ages 50 and 70 and subsequent dementia. “Spending more time with friends could also be good for mental wellbeing, and may correlate with being physically active, both of which can also reduce the risk of developing dementia,” added Livingston.last_img read more
