Andre Drummond helps Pistons beat Pacers in opener

first_img‘Gago’ Drummond scored 32 points, grabbed 23 rebounds and blocked four shots while Kennard made half of his career-high six 3-pointers in the final six minutes to help the Pistons pull away for a 119-110 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.“I’m glad he (Drummond) is on my team,” Derrick Rose said after his Pistons debut. “It just feels good to win, especially the first game.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4The Pacers had billed their opener as the debut of a new era complete with four new starters and a retro lineup with 6-foot-11 Myles Turner and 6-11 Domantas Sabonis playing alongside one another.But Drummond and Kennard ruined the big unveil. 2 village execs nabbed in Bohol buy-bust Indiana extended a 55-54 halftime lead to 73-64 midway through the third quarter then nearly gave it all away as the Pistons closed to 86-83 after three.Drummond helped the Pistons trade punches early in the fourth, just long enough for Kennard to heat up. When he knocked down the second of back-to-back 3s to end an 8-0 run with 4:40 to play, Detroit led 105-101. His third 3 of the quarter, with 1:24 left made it 113-103 and sealed the Pacers fate.“I love the way we fought,” Kennard said. “That was great to come into an atmosphere like this, opening night, for a team on the road it’s not always easy to come away with a win.TIP-INSPistons: Drummond, the NBA leader in double-doubles last season, moved within one game of tying Shaquille O’Neal (34) for the second-most 20-20 game since 1988-89. … Rose had 18 points and went 5 for 5 from the field in the first half. … Tony Snell scored 10 points on a night the Pistons committed 18 turnovers. … Detroit’s bench outscored Indiana 57-16.Pacers: T.J. Warren was taken straight to the locker room with 3:46 left after taking a hard spill following an offensive foul. He finished with 10 points. …. Brogdon was 10 of 11 from the free- throw line, and Jeremy Lamb scored 10 points in his first game with Indiana. … The Pacers were outrebounded 45-36 and lost on opening night for the first time in four years.OLADIPO UPDATETwo-time All-Star Victor Oladipo has participated in two five-on-five practices since he was cleared by team doctors late last week.So far, coach Nate McMillan said Oladipo has had looked fine. But he’s also likely weeks away from taking another big step.“He looks OK out there,” McMillan said, noting Oladipo is only practicing every other day. “He wants to play a little more but he’s limited for what he can do for the next month or so before he gets re-evaluated.” Lionel Messi, Liverpool shine in the Champions League Phivolcs: Cloud seeding in ashfall affected areas needs study The league’s three-time rebounding champ was a wrecking ball right from the start, knocking down 12 of 18 shots and even making his last eight free throws after missing the first two. Kennard warmed up late, scoring 16 of his career-high 30 points in the final 11 minutes.Indiana never recovered. Sabonis had 27 points and 13 rebounds and Malcolm Brogdon added 22 points in his first game with the Pacers.“We got outworked tonight, I think,” Turner said after scoring 25 points. “That’s one thing we hang our hat on here, outworking people. I think we got outworked and they were a little grittier than we were.”It was far from pretty, though.The teams combined for 33 turnovers and 29 fouls resulting in a back-and-forth game in which neither team seized control for long.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Detroit Pistons’ Andre Drummond (0) reacts with Luke Kennard, left, and Derrick Rose, right, during the second half of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers, Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019, in Indianapolis.

Super Rugby says goodbye to Sunwolves

first_imgThe revised format will come into operation and kick-off in 2021 which means the Sunwolves will drop out of the existing 15-team Super Rugby competition at the end of the 2020 season.SANZAAR CEO Andy Marinos stated: “The decision to further consolidate the competition format to a 14-team round robin was not taken lightly. It has involved some detailed analysis and a thorough review of the current and future rugby landscape, tournament costs, commercial and broadcast considerations and player welfare in line with our Strategic Plan.“Competition integrity, affordability and a competitive playing environment were further key drivers to ensure that an optimal player development pathway remains in place to feed into international rugby.“Factoring in the above analysis and review a 14 or 15-team round robin format were considered, as these models delivered best against the criteria we were seeking, including a format that would see each team playing every other team leading into a finals series, added Marinos.”Super Rugby will therefore comprise the existing five New Zealand teams, four South African teams, four Australian teams and the Jaguares from South America.The agreed format will be played within the next commercial broadcast window starting in 2021.Marinos added: “SANZAAR was advised by the Japan Rugby Football Union (JRFU) in early March that they would no longer be in a position to financially underwrite the Sunwolves future participation post 2020.“The future of the Sunwolves will now be determined by the JRFU which has determined that Super Rugby no longer remains the best pathway for the development of players for the national team.“However, Japan and the Asia Pacific region remain strategically important to SANZAAR. We will continue to work with the JRFU, Japan Super Rugby Association (JSRA) and other stakeholders, as we have done throughout this review process, to establish a truly professional league structure in Japan in which current and potentially new teams could participate.“We have presented options to them around the establishment of a Super Rugby Asia-Pacific competition structure including Japan, the Pacific Islands, North and South America and Hong Kong.“The concept includes linking high performance programmes of such nations into the potential competition structure. The aim is to deliver a competitive and sustainable international pathway that can align to both current and future considerations around the international calendar.“We would like to thank the JRFU for their continued support and look forward to working with them going forward and we will continue to be supportive of the Sunwolves through the 2019 and 2020 super rugby seasons.”The 14-team round robin format will see the removal of the current three conference system and will see each team play every other team home or away each season.This means 13 matches for each team, with two byes, in the regular season with the number of home and away matches varying from six to seven based on a two-year alternate match schedule.This will then lead into a new three-week, best versus best, super-charged, top six finals series.The top two ranked teams on the competition ladder will receive a bye in week one before hosting semi-final matches against the winners from a knockout round between teams ranked three to six.The future format and structure of Rugby Championship will be announced at a later date.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Super Rugby says goodbye to SunwolvesLONDON, United Kingdom, March 22 – The Sunwolves stint in Super Rugby is set to come to an end after SANZAAR announced that the Tokyo-based franchise will be axed from the tournament from 2021.SANZAAR revealed that following a substantial review over the last 18 months via a strategic planning process the immediate future of Super Rugby rests with a 14-team, round robin, competition format.last_img read more

Forlan urges patience for Pogba, Man Utd

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s French midfielder Paul Pogba shouts at the linesman during the English Premier League football match between Watford and Manchester United at Vicarage Road Stadium in Watford, north of London on September 18, 2016.MUMBAI, India, Sep 22 – Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan said it’s only a matter of time before underperforming midfielder Paul Pogba starts justifying his world-record price tag for Jose Mourinho’s lacklustre side.Forlan, now playing for India’s Mumbai City FC, endured a torrid start to his Red Devils career but went on to become a fan favourite and believes that Frenchman Pogba will too. Forlan said the 89-million-pound ($115.7 million, 103.7 million euros) signing from Juventus just needs a while to adapt from Italy to the English top flight.“He played in England of course when he was younger and he has quality so it’s a matter of time and he will be playing really well,” the ex-Atletico Madrid star told AFP.Pogba, who started his career at Old Trafford before rejoining after four trophy-laden seasons in Turin, turned in another below-par performance at the weekend as United slumped to a third consecutive defeat.United ended their losing streak on Wednesday night, prevailing 3-1 over third-tier Northampton Town in the English Football League Cup, although Pogba was left out of the squad.Mourinho was appointed United boss to mount a challenge for their first Premier League title since 2013, but after five games they are already six points behind bitter rivals Manchester City, who are yet to slip up.Forlan, who struggled for goals but helped win the league during his two-year spell in Manchester, is not surprised that Mourinho’s new-look side are still to gel and he urged fans to be patient.“It’s difficult to adjust — new manager, some new players,” the Uruguayan said in a phone interview from Dubai on Tuesday, where Mumbai were preparing for the third Indian Super League season.– Cult hero –“They have some good players and of course you need time for everybody, but unluckily in football, time is not what you have every time.“But I think the directors and everybody knows that this could happen and that some games you have to be patient,” Forlan added.The former Uruguay international also won the FA Cup and Community Shield while at Manchester United from 2002 to 2004, but took more than a dozen games to score his first Premier League goal.“I was playing only 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes for the first five months. That makes it difficult for any player in the world to adapt at a new club,” he explained.“When I had the opportunity to play more regularly in the next season I started to score goals and play well,” added Forlan, who ended up a cult hero amongst United fans for scoring a double against Liverpool.Forlan, who went on to play for Spanish side Villareal and Japan’s Cerezo Osaka, will make his India debut when Mumbai line up against Pune on October 3.He says he has rejected offers from clubs in England, Spain and Italy to play in the three-month Indian season, and has no plans to retire once his stint with Mumbai finishes in mid December.“I would love to continue playing. I’m 37 years old and at a moment (in my career) where I don’t have to impress anybody,” said Forlan, scorer of 36 goals in 112 internationals.“If someone wants me to be in the team they know what I am capable of.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Performances and results have been far below what is expected at Arsenal.“But Emery’s departure is the easy part. The more difficult challenge is to recruit a suitable successor. We are far from certain that Arsenal has the right personnel to lead this process.“The AST has long been advocating that the most important changes needed at Arsenal are in the boardroom where Arsenal need better governance.“It is a sad fact that the club is now wholly owned by an overseas investment vehicle, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, who are largely absent from London.“This means that the club needs to be governed by a strong board in London, one that is truly independent and has the expertise and dynamism to drive a football club forward.“Arsenal’s board currently has no one with football expertise. Its three ‘independent’ members are 85, 79 and 77 years old. None of them have football experience nor reflect the diversity of Arsenal’s playing squads nor supporter base.“A strong board would be able to hold the club’s executive to account and to provide them with counsel.“Arsenal also need to build better relationships with their supporters especially at the ownership/boardroom level. New appointments to the board should include looking for people with the skillset to ensure better dialogue with supporters and provide a sense of purpose and direction.“So if Arsenal are to genuinely move forward from today it requires not only a new head coach appointment but also a rejuvenation of the boardroom.”25 days ago29th November 2019MarcUnai Emery SACKED: Arsenal legends Ray Parlour and Perry Groves react to Gunners announcement – ‘Something had to be done’25 days ago29th November 2019MarcArsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who played in Emery’s final game last night, has apologised and said the players must take responsibility for recent poor results.

How Barcelona have changed identity since they last played Celtic

first_imgIn terms of the changes their midfield unit have undergone in recent years, Arda Turan has become Barcelona’s personification. The Turkish international was reportedly dumped on the transfer list earlier this summer, but has since forced his way into the first-team fold this season. Just like Suarez, his energy and drive is why Enrique seemingly rates him so highly. Turan is the image of how Barca are now a more combative team than they were the last time they faced Celtic.However, there are certain weaknesses for Celtic to expose on Tuesday night. Right-back has become an area of concern for Barcelona following Dani Alves’ exit to Juventus. The Brazilian was integral to Barca’s tactical identity and spirit as a team, with both Aleix Vidal and Sergio Roberto struggling to make the position their own as his replacement. On the opposite flank, Jordi Alba is no longer the unstoppable Road Runner he was just a couple seasons ago, and in Lucas Digne Barcelona have a more than able deputy. Nevertheless, there are questions over Enrique’s defensive line, underlined by Javier Mascherano’s struggles despite the Argentine signing a contract extension at the Camp Nou this summer. Clash: The two sides met earlier this summer. PAThe structure of Barcelona’s starting lineup is indeed similar to the one that sustained them in their last two Champions League clashes against Celtic, with Pique, Sergio Busquets and Messi still forming the core of what makes them so good. But that structure has been adapted and altered to include a number of different strands and supporting pillars. Whereas before there was a clear game-plan for opposition sides to adopt when taking on Barcelona, with the only question whether it could be executed, now there is no obvious way to get at the Catalans. Rodgers would be forgiven for staring blankly at his tactics board ahead of Tuesday’s match, struggling for ideas. Enrique’s side isn’t a purely Barcelona team like Guardiola or even Martino’s was, but that has made them even tougher to beat. Enrique has succeeded in making Barcelona a more adaptable outfit over the course of his two years in charge, taking the club away from the identity Pep Guardiola imposed on it. They can still pass an opposition team into submission, Celtic must be wary of death by a thousand passes, but they are not adverse to a long ball over the top or a tussle in the centre of midfield.This has been made possible by the type of players that have arrived at the Camp Nou over the past few years. Most notably, Luis Suarez changed the character of Barcelona as a team, with the Uruguayan not exactly in the mould of a typical Cule striker. While Lionel Messi and Neymar are decidedly smooth, naturally gifted players Suarez is wriggly, irrepressibly energetic and the embodiment of Barca’s propensity to go direct. Duo: Messi and Suarez have struck up an understanding. PAUnder Guardiola, the midfield was the valve through which everything passed. Now Enrique frequently implores his team to bypass the middle of the pitch entirely. It’s certainly not unusual for Gerard Pique to angle a diagonal long pass towards Suarez, turning the opposition defence towards their own goal. It makes the most of Barcelona’s utterly terrifying frontline.Tuesday’s game could be the first time this season that Messi, Neymar and Suarez – the MSN as they have been dubbed – will start together, with the former returning from winning Olympic gold with Brazil. That in itself is a frightening enough thought, but Brendan Rodgers mustn’t just look at the trio for their individual qualities but for the different styles of the threat they will pose.Impression: Arda Turan has become a first-team figure. PA Tiki-taka, Total Football, Catenaccio – certain clubs and footballing cultures over time become synonymous with a certain way of playing the game. Barcelona are the modern-day epitome of that. At the Camp Nou it’s not just winning that’s demanded, but winning in style too. Indeed, romantic notions of free-flowing, one touch football were conjured up upon Barca’s drawing from the Champions League hat against Celtic. The Hoops know more about that than most, having played the Catalans four times in the past four years. The two clubs enjoy an intrinsic link that transcends any sporting explanation.Celtic should brace themselves for an altogether difference experience this time around, though. They have faced many of the players who will line up for Barcelona on Tuesday night before, but Luis Enrique’s side is distinct in their own identity. This isn’t the same team the Hoops took on three years ago.Whether Enrique’s side is better or worse than the one Tata Martino led to a 6-1 win upon the clubs’ last meeting at the Camp Nou is debatable, but what is certain is the ideological change that has occurred at the Catalan club in the time since. Tiki-taka isn’t dead, but Barcelona no longer need it to survive.Defeat: Celtic were thumped by Barca in 2012. SNS Grouplast_img read more

Addressing the Aging Workforce

first_imgDemographers call it the “silver tsunami”: a rising tide of older workers that threatens to overwhelm institutions and systems from retirement to health care to employment. Others simply call it “the aging workforce,” which sounds less alarming. But by any name, the challenge facing U.S. businesses, government and society as the workforce ages and the Baby Boomer generation retires is real. And after many years of anticipation, it has arrived.The proof is in the numbers. Since 2011, roughly 10,000 U.S. Baby Boomers have turned 65 each day. This year, the youngest Boomers turn 50. While the Great Recession did slow the number of retirements in recent years, the percentage of retired Baby Boomers has nearly doubled since 2010. It is clear we need to focus with even greater urgency on this challenge.Read more and learn what SHRM and our partners are doing to address the aging workforce in this month’s issue of HR Magazine.last_img read more
