Van Gaal defiant as criticism mounts

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP)If Manchester United went on the attack in games as much as its manager does in news conferences, England’s biggest team may not be in such a rut.Yesterday, a defiant Louis van Gaal criticised sections of the British media who reported this week he had offered to resign in the wake of United’s latest poor result a 1-0 home loss to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.”I think it’s awful and horrible,” said Van Gaal, who walked out of a news conference last month. “It’s the third time I’ve been sacked and I’m still sitting here.”Lose to second-tier Derby in the FA Cup today and even Van Gaal acknowledges the scrutiny could be too much to take.The Dutchman said yesterday that he hadn’t offered to quit and the support of Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, was “fantastic.””It gives you a lot of pressure because when the board has such confidence in you, the pressure is much higher than when they say it’s your last game,” Van Gaal said. “Then the confidence is not so high.”United may be playing Derby just at the right time. They have won only one of their last six games in the FA Cup third round and have dropped off the top of the League Championship.Derby is managed by Paul Clement, the former assistant manager at Real Madrid where he worked under Carlo Ancelotti. Clement said he might speak to Ancelotti before today’s game at Pride Park.”I am not sure it will quite be a giant-killing if we get a good result,” Clement said. “It is a challenge we are really looking forward to, up against a team that is not in great form.”last_img read more

Delight for Deele College as three students win top national award

first_imgThree students from Deele College are celebrating national success this week after they came first place in the Foroige Youth Entrepreneurship Programme in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.The three girls, Ellie Barron, Saffron Porter and Stephanie Harper are Transition Year students in the school and their product ‘Clean Guard’ beat off stiff competition from students from across the country to take the top prize.The girls will now go on to Barcelona to represent Ireland at the European stage of the competition. They say that simplicity is the trademark of genius and that adage certainly rings true for the girls, who have come up with a simple, yet an ingenious way for athletes to keep their mouth guards or gum shields clean and free from bacteria.Through their involvement in sport and their participation in the Donegal Enterprise Board Workshop, they identified a niche in the market and a problem that needed a solution.They created ‘Clean-Guard,’ which consists of a liquid sanitiser, a brush and a container, which doubles as both a cleaning container and a holder for taking to games or fights.The product works in fifteen minutes and leaves the mouth-guard fresh and ready to use for the next outing. Ellie Barron, Saffron Porter and Stephanie Harper took the top spot at the Foroige Youth Entrepreneurship Programme.The feedback that the girls have received has been phenomenal, with boxing sensation, Jason Quigley giving his seal of approval, just days after his last victory.He came to the school to meet the team behind the product and gave it his seal of approval.“After my last fight, I fired the mouth-guard into my bag and it was covered in blood. I took it out two days later and had to spend ages cleaning it with boiling water and a toothbrush.“It would have been great to have a cleaning product for the gum-shield and I will be using ‘Clean-Guard’ from now on so well done to the girls for creating something that we, as athletes, need.”There were buoyant scenes in the school on Thursday afternoon, when word filtered back that the team had won the overall prize and a trip to Barcelona in September. The girls were inundated with congratulatory messages, one of which came from the current Minister for Education, Joe McHugh, who congratulated the girls on their creativity, initiative and marketing skills.He highlighted the benefits of Transition Year, which allows students to take their learning outside the classroom and embrace their creativity. He also noted that the girls have the ability to take this product further.School principal, Mr Joe Boyle, was understandably delighted with the girls’ achievement and he says that it was a proud day for both the school and for the families of those involved.“I can’t emphasise the gravity of what the girls have done in winning a national competition which pitted them against the very best in the country. I’d like to say well done to the girls and indeed their families, who have supported them throughout this competition.“I would also like to pay a special mention to their teacher, Ms Orla Gallagher, who has worked night and day to help the girls.“I would also like to show my appreciation to Liam Porter, who is not only a past student of the school but a big supporter of everything we do here at Deele College.“Liam has been an invaluable asset to the team throughout. I would also like to thank all those was assisted the girls in any way for the competition.“On Monday, we have one of the highlights of the school calendar, which is our annual prize-giving and the girls will undoubtedly be honoured for their hard work and success on the day.“We are delighted that Education Minister, Joe McHugh TD will be here to join us for this celebration.”Delight for Deele College as three students win top national award was last modified: May 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Florida Voters Reject Solar Amendment

first_imgEven a $26 million cash infusion from electric utilities and lobbyists wasn’t enough to persuade Florida voters to pass a proposed constitutional amendment on residential solar installations last week.The proposed amendment needed 60% of the vote to win approval, but on election day only about half the voters were in favor, The Miami Herald reported.Florida law currently allows homeowners to own or lease solar panels, but third-party sales and power purchase agreements are not permitted. The controversial proposal sought to “constitutionalize the status quo,” in the words of Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente, and was roundly criticized by solar advocates as a way to restrict the growth of solar.Efforts to defeat the proposal were led by a group called Floridians for Solar Choice, which said that the vote was a “David v. Goliath victory.”“We defeated one of the most egregious and underhanded attempts at voter manipulation in this state’s history,” the group’s chairman, Tory Perfetti, said.The measure looked like it was cruising toward easy approval this summer, but in mid-October the newspaper published leaked comments from a utility-supported think tank director who boasted the amendment would “negate” efforts to promote solar energy. Opponents turned up the heat and got help from Elon Musk, Jimmy Buffett, and former Governor Bob Graham, among others, and these efforts helped swing the vote.The Herald said that utilities were expected to turn to the state legislature or Public Service Commission for help in weakening Florida’s net-metering laws and ending tax rebates for solar customers.last_img read more
