The Magpie Salute’s “Omission” is a powerful song, opening with commanding guitar licks that make way for lead vocalist John Hogg’s authoratative vocals. The rugged song is a master course in rock ‘n’ roll, creating an impressive debut for the new project. In this new video directed by Matthew Sterling, the drama of the rock-centric tune is emphasized by the crisply contrasted, black-and-white footage of the band laying into the song. As Rich Robinson said in a statement, “The overall idea was based on the light and dark aspects of the human psyche and taking a reference from the Magpie which has elements of the light and dark.”Rich Robinson Reunites Black Crowes Members For Debut Of The Magpie Salute [Watch]In the new video for “Omission,” the drama of the rock-centric tune is emphasized by the crisply contrasted, black-and-white footage of the band laying into the song.

EU to unveil plans to boost European firms, rein in US tech giants

first_imgThe European Commission will on Wednesday launch the first of a raft of proposals to help European companies exploit their rich trove of industrial data and at the same time rein in online giants Facebook Inc, Alphabet Inc’s Google and Amazon.com Inc .The data strategy and artificial intelligence discussion papers are part of a bigger scheme to help European companies better compete with US tech giants and state-aided Chinese companies in the digital world.European digital and antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager and European industry chief Thierry Breton will present the proposals around noon. They will come up with a final draft by the end of the year following feedback from interested parties. The core of the EU’s data strategy is the creation of a single European data market and smaller data markets centered on key industries, according to a draft seen by Reuters last month.Other elements include new rules covering cross-border data use, data interoperability and standards related to manufacturing, climate change, the auto industry, healthcare, financial services, agriculture and energy.One of the possibly controversial proposals calls for doing away with EU competition rules against anti-competitive data sharing.In response to complaints about the power wielded by large online platforms, the Commission is also considering introducing rules to stop these companies from unilaterally imposing conditions for access and use of data or benefiting from this in a disproportionate manner.The discussion paper on artificial intelligence aims to set up a framework to govern the use of this technology used by an increasing number of companies, a draft seen by Reuters showed. The rules would apply to high-risk sectors such as healthcare, transport and predictive policing.More onerous rules known as the digital services act, which could force the tech giants to take on more responsibilities for their actions and content hosted on their platforms, are expected to be announced towards the end of the year.Topics :last_img read more

Why I have not taken up any coaching role yet, Augustine Arhinful opens up

first_imgFormer Black Stars striker Augustine Arhinful has revealed why he has not taken on any coaching job in the country since hanging his boots.Arhinful, who is part of the Ghana Football Association’s technical committee, qualifies to manage any team in the country after obtaining his CAF License A coaching certificate. According to him, interference and manipulation in the work of coaches from club administrators is the main reason why he has decided to stay away.“I have not given myself that opportunity because i have not been happy with some happenings on the local scene,” he told Joy Sports“I would want a team that will allow me to work if  if i’m given the job but we all know and we don’t have to run away from that fact that coaches here are not given the free hand to work when it comes to local management.”He added that “ I don’t blame the management too because you put in your money and you want to have success and so you always want to have an input but when it comes to technical issues sometimes you need to leave it to the technical men then if i fail you are able to tell me that you are not doing well so go.” “But i will not sit down for you to dictate to me who plays on a weekend whiles i have taken them through training that doesn’t work for me so that is why i have kept myself from mainstream coaching.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Wellington baseball team sweeps Circle; girls get swept

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington baseball team came into Thursday’s games 2-8 while the girls softball team was 8-2. But Thursday the tables turned as the boys picked up a doubleheader sweep while the girls were swept.Wellington head baseball coach Jeff Frazee told the group at Crusader Club that the 2-8 record was a result of extremely tough competition and he said over the next couple of weeks, the Crusaders could get back to .500.His prophecy seems intact at the moment. Wellington would beat Circle in game one 6-4, and 15-2 in game two.The Crusaders were led by senior Connor Phelps, who went 3-3 at the plate in game one. He singled in the first inning, tripled in the second and doubled in the fourth.Wellington opened with a 1-0 lead but fell behind as Circle scored three of its four runs in the bottom of the first. The Dukes responded with two runs in the second.Then in the fourth, trailing 4-3, Cade Phelps would bang out a RBI single bringing his older brother home to tie the game. Wellington would eventually add one more run to pick up the victory.Therin Frame was the winning pitcher in 4.1 innings pitched, allowing two hits, one walk and striking out three. Adam Hilt started for Wellington and pitch 2.2 innings allowing four hits, three walks, while striking out three.Cade PhelpsIn game two, Cade Phelps had a huge day on the plate and on the mound. He would rack up five RBIs on three hits – including a double in the second, fourth and seventh innings.On the other side of the ball, Phelps struck out eight, allowing one earned run, eight hits, and one walk over seven innings.Wellington never run-ruled Circle but scored seven runs in the seventh after leading 8-2.Cameron Bartleson also got a double and three RBIs.Wellington baseball team travels to Winfield next Thursday. ————The Wellington girls league title aspirations may have gone by the wayside after losing two tough games to Circle Thursday. The second game was heartbreaking in that Wellington would open up with a 7-0 lead but could not maintain the lead. Circle scored a run on a Toedman RBI double in the bottom of the sixth to break a 11-all tie.Trailing 12-11, Ryleigh Buck got on base with a walk and moved to third with one out thanks to a stolen base and wild pitch. But nobody could bring her home.Baylee DeJarnettThis game will be remembered by Baylee DeJarnett’s grand slam home run in the top of the second. With Madi Lewellen, McKenna Oathout and Avery Rusk on base off two singles and an error, DeJarnett stepped up to home plate and ripped one over the center field fence.Unfortunately, Circle would respond with two five-run innings in the third and fourth and the game was tied at 10-all going into the fifth.Brooke McCorkle had a rough night in the pitching circle, allowing 14 hits, two walks and striking out one.Wellington would have 12 hits off of two pitchers.In the first game, Wellington got off to a good start when McCorkle had a 2RBI double in the top of the first. But Circle wouldn’t allow another run until the seventh.In between then Circle would score two runs in the first, five runs in the fourth, and three runs in the fifth for the win.DeJarnett had a double in that game.Lewellen was the losing pitcher, allowing 15 hits with no walks, and striking out one.The Lady Dukes are now 8-4 in the season with all four of those losses being league games. They travel to Winfield next Thursday.GAME 1: Circle 10 Wellington 3WHS  2 0 0 0 0 0 1     3 8 1CHS  2 0 0 5 3 0 X     10 15 0LP Lewellen  5I 15H 10R 9ER 1K 0BB     A Goodrum 1I 0H 0R 0ER 0K 0BBWP HerbertRusk 1/4 1RB DeJarnett 2/4 1R 1DBLR Buck 0/2 1R 1BB 1HBP 3SBMcCorkle 1/2 2RBI 1BB 1DBL 1HBPE Goodrum 0/4J Buck 2/4 1RBIZimmerman 0/4Lewellen 1/2Adams 1/3A Goodrum 0/0 1HBPGame 2: Circle 12 Wellington 11WHS 2 5 0 3 1 0 0    11 12 2CHS 0 0 5 5 1 1 X    12 14 7LP McCorkle 6I 14H 12R 9ER 1K 2BBWP BardinRusk 2/5 1R 1ROEB DeJarnett 1/5 1R 4RBI 1HRR Buck 3/4 4R 1RBI 1BB 1DBL 1ROE 4SBMcCorkle 1/4 1BB 1ROEE Goodrum 0/5 1ROEJ Buck 2/3 1R 1RBI 1SAC 1ROELewellen 2/4 2R 1ROEOathout 1/4 1R 2RBI 1ROEAdams 0/3 1HBP.Follow us on Twitter.

Thank you for your input. +1 Vote up Vote down Realist · 224 weeks ago Does whomever keeping the stats watch the games? Several errors were made, but our freshmen pitcher gives up 9ER? It’s more like 3 with 9 unearned runs. I’m not naming girls with obvious errors, they are kids playing a game and everyone makes errors. It’s not fair to anyone not be fair with stats. Report Reply 0 replies · active 224 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down RU Kidding · 224 weeks ago 9 ER runs reflects a few errors considering 12 runs were scored. Simple fact is Circle was hitting the ball hard of off the Freshman pitcher, who probably should have been pulled. Errors the judgment of scorekeeper. It is consistent with how the Circle scorekeeper recorded it on their stats. Report Reply 0 replies · active 224 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Rooney reckons he picked ‘right time’ to leave Man Utd

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Wayne Rooney believes he left Manchester United at the right time, even though he wanted to finish his career at Old Trafford.The 33-year-old, who is set to make his final England appearance against the United States in a friendly international at Wembley on Thursday, is now playing for North American club side DC United in Major League Soccer.But there is no denying his place in United’s history books, with Rooney the club’s leading goalscorer in a career that also saw him win five Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and three League Cups with the Red Devils.In total, Rooney made 559 appearances for United from 2004-2017 after joining from boyhood club Everton.But he started a mere seven of the final 19 Premier League appearances of his United career, with Rooney no longer a first-choice player under manager Jose Mourinho.Rooney returned to Everton before leaving English club football completely when he joined DC United earlier this year.“Of course you miss it,” he told MUTV, United’s in-house television station, of his time at Old Trafford. “It was the highlight of my career, playing for Man United and I was there for so long. But it was the right time.“I wasn’t playing, first of all. I have always been a player who wants to play,” he added. “Obviously I spoke to the manager (Mourinho) and it didn’t look like I was going to play, so it was the right decision and the right time for me to go.“Obviously, you wish, the ideal situation was staying there and finishing your career there, but football changes. Different things happen and things happen for a reason.”Rooney was denied the kind of United farewell he is set to enjoy with England as his last appearance for the club was as a substitute against Dutch side Ajax in a Europa League victory,“It would have been nice to have done it at Old Trafford,” he said. “But I have been back there a few times and I will be back over the Christmas period, at a game to watch them.“I left with great memories. I had a new opportunity to go and play in the States. I had a great time at United, though, and again I am looking forward to going back and seeing a few of my team-mates, and a few friends from the staff who I have made along the way.“The fans have been brilliant to me and it will be nice to see a few familiar faces when I go to a game over Christmas,” Rooney added.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
