But Manny knows every time he’s gotten a promotion on his job and co-workers who half-step are resentful , he’s moved up via old folks wisdom.Back to the youngster in the store shopping cart. What if the woman inquiring about baby food placement had instead unleashed a mouthful of profanity.We know for the kids who hear “You ain’t never gonna be nothing.” that’s who they become.We know for the kids who hear, “You just like yo no good daddy,” for some very unfortunate scientific reason, that’s who they become.How often we hear of programs designed to help the kids at risk. In my world, a very crucial element is being overlooked.Home environment makes a difference. Wise elders shouldn’t be overlooked.Kids are at risk and their parents were at risk and probably there weren’t any grandparents around preaching their wisdom from their unwritten book of positive knowledge..

The rush after Russia – Premier League clubs struggle with new transfer deadline

first_imgShare on WhatsApp Share on Pinterest There are only three weeks until the Premier League transfer window closes, the day before the new season begins and 22 days before top-flight clubs in France, Germany and Spain are obliged to put their own chequebooks away. The early deadline, agreed last September, represents a massive change to the rhythm of Premier League summers; last year clubs in the English top flight completed more deals in the 24 hours of transfer deadline day (17) than they did in the last two weeks of July (16). This summer all that activity and a great deal more will have to be compressed, like clowns in a mini, into an uncomfortably small space. Premier League The great danger for English clubs is that they fail to sell unwanted players before the window closes but are nevertheless forced to complete deals for their replacements. This would leave them in an abysmal negotiating position as they then seek to rid themselves of the sidelined squad members. Clubs from elsewhere in Europe will, by August, be emboldened to submit cut-price offers to now-desperate employers. Indeed, one of the reasons for the slow pace of this window may be that clubs likely to profit in this scenario are tactically delaying their bids while they wait for prices to crash in a few weeks’ time. “It’s a good idea to close the window before the season starts but only if every country does it on the same day,” one Premier League director of recruitment says. “What we’ve done has given all the other clubs an advantage.”Over the next two months much will be discovered about the effects of the new system and the best tactics to exploit it. “People will learn,” says Angel. “Next year there won’t be a World Cup and people will realise that this is too short a period. It’s a learning curve. I don’t think people have really thought about it. But they’ll see the difficulties they encounter this year and they’ll probably look to do things a bit differently. I think next year will be very different.” Read more Read more Share on Messenger Liverpool sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson for world-record £66.9m fee Share on LinkedIn Despite that, clubs have been slow to adapt to their new system. Fewer deals have been completed this summer than in the same period last year, with Premier League clubs unfamiliar with their newly constricted calendar and constrained to an extent by the World Cup yet to change their ways. With time running out the industry is braced for a three-week spree of unprecedented proportions as officials suddenly find themselves in a rush, rather than in Russia.“It’ll be like January, where everything happens in the last 10 days,” says Leon Angel, chairman of Base Soccer, whose clients include Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Ashley Young. “The activity in the market has been very slow recently, which I think is because of the World Cup. That’s quite normal. But I think the clubs haven’t got to grips with the fact that they’ve got only three weeks left.”When Liverpool signed Fabinho from Monaco on 28 May and over the following few weeks Manchester United agreed deals for Fred and Diogo Dalot while Arsenal brought in Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus and Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, it seemed clubs were determined to complete their transfer business early. But that momentum has stalled: Burnley, Everton and Tottenham are yet to sign anyone while Bournemouth, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Manchester City have brought in one player each.“Some deals are always done by early June and that happened this year in the same way as previous years,” says Angel. “For example Manchester United signed Fred, which was all tied up before the World Cup started. But the last few weeks have been particularly quiet, I would say. Premier League clubs are used to coming back for pre-season at the start of July, not having to think too much about transfers for a few weeks, and then doing their business in August. However, we have certainly seen an upturn in activity that would not normally occur in the first couple of weeks of July.” Transfer windowcenter_img European club football Premier League clubs voted by a margin of 14 to five, with one abstention, to bring forward their incoming transfer deadline. Italy’s Serie A will experiment with a similar rule, though given their season starts later they will be able to sign players until 17 August. Teams will still be able to sell players abroad, with clubs in most European leagues open for business until 31 August and a few – those in Portugal, for instance – unshackled until mid-September.The decision was intended to reduce the uncertainty that can undermine players hoping still to complete moves after the season starts, with the decision taken while memories were fresh of the 2017-18 campaign’s troubled opening exchanges. Last August found several high-profile players caught in an awkward twilight zone: Virgil van Dijk was out of the Southampton team amid rumours of a move to Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho was agitating for a move to Barcelona – both transfers were eventually finalised in January – while Gylfi Sigurdsson was absent from the Swansea team in advance of his switch to Everton. Meanwhile Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played for Arsenal in a 4-0 defeat by Liverpool on 27 August, four days before he pulled on a Liverpool shirt himself after moving to Anfield. This year players should not be troubled by such conflicts. Share on Facebook The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email.

10 months agoChelsea warned Hudson-Odoi will become next Sancho

first_imgChelsea warned Hudson-Odoi will become next Sanchoby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes the club are risking Callum Hudson-Odoi becoming the next Jadon Sancho by allowing him to join Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Sancho has excelled since leaving Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017.And Cascarino believes Hudson-Odoi could make Chelsea regret selling him if he is given the opportunity to play at Bayern.He told The Times: “Bayern Munich’s interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi should tell Chelsea all they need to know.”The 18-year-old is clearly a special talent and they should be doing all they can to stop him joining one of the biggest clubs in Europe.”Transfer fees are obscene for teenagers but Chelsea should look farther down the line.”Just look at Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund.”Manchester City let him leave and now he is starring for the Bundesliga leaders domestically and in the Champions League.”Chelsea must resist the temptation of selling Hudson-Odoi this month and try and persuade him to sign a new long-term contract – his value and ability is likely to only increase.”There aren’t many players who can skip past players and deliver such brilliant crosses as he did against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.”He set up Alvaro Morata for both goals and was comfortably the best player on the pitch.”Chelsea have had little success in establishing their academy players in the first team, which should make them even more determined to keep Hudson-Odoi.”They know how important it is to their fans to have a home-grown player star for the first team – just look at how the supporters adored John Terry.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Photo Exhibition Celebrates 20 Years Of Stars Helping Children

first_imgMoving pictures taken by High Profile UNICEF Supporters have gone on display for the first time, including never before seen snaps taken by Sir Chris Hoy, Michael Sheen and Eddie Izzard, for a new photo exhibition in London.Ewan McGregor and UNICEFEleven well known faces feature in the exhibition, some in photos themselves alongside children they have met around the world and others where the stars have got behind the lens, including a couple of selfies.The full line-up includes Robbie Williams, Lewis Hamilton, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Roger Moore, Sir Chris Hoy, Michael Sheen, Orlando Bloom, Ewan McGregor, Eddie Izzard, Jessie Ware and Claudia Schiffer, all of whom have supported Unicef’s work for children around the world.On display from the 14th of November at the Le Meridien Hotel in Piccadilly, London, the exhibition celebrates 20 years of partnership between Unicef and Starwood, which has improved the lives of over 4.5 million children. Since 1995 Starwood guests and employees have raised almost $35 million to help Unicef immunise children against killer diseases, provide clean water for communities, distribute life-saving mosquito nets, establish schools, provide counselling for vulnerable children and much more. The exhibition is free to the public and runs until 29th of November.Unicef UK Supporter Lewis Hamilton said: “I remember my first trip with Unicef so well. My mum was with me after the Malaysian Grand Prix, and we flew over to the Philippines to see Unicef’s programmes for children living on the streets of Manila. I couldn’t believe, and still can’t, that over 85,000 children live and work on the streets in the capital city. I met three young boys who lived on a vegetable cart with their parents but thanks to Unicef’s support were able to attend education classes for street children. I met so many children playing in the streets but I’ll never forget the smell of the river in the middle of town where children bathed and swam and the dangers that they face there.”Unicef Goodwill Ambassador Sir Roger Moore said: “I’m proud to say that I was there at the very beginning of Check Out for Children and even prouder that the partnership is still going strong two decades later. I have visited Unicef programmes around the world and have seen first-hand the incredible difference that is being made to children’s lives.”Among the stars who have taken their own photos for the exhibition, Michael Sheen shared a photo of a young Syrian boy in a refugee camp in Lebanon, Eddie Izzard and Sir Chris Hoy both shared selfies with children they met on their Unicef visits, Jessie Ware shared a photo of children in a Unicef centre in Cameroon and Emma Bunton shared a picture from her visit to meet children in Madagascar.Over 370 hotels across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia are involved in the Check Out for Children partnership. The initiative gives Starwood guests the opportunity to add $1, £1 or €1 to their bill to support Unicef. The funds raised will help Unicef provide clean water and safe sanitation for children and families across Africa and the Middle East.Michael Wale, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East said: “Back in 1995 we teamed up with Unicef and Sir Roger to launch Check Out for Children at The Park Tower Knightsbridge (formerly Sheraton Park Tower) where I was general manager. Two decades later, the initiative expanded widely across our hotels helping improve the lives of over 4.5 million children in more than 40 countries around the world. We are extremely grateful to our guests and employees for sharing our passion to do the right thing and raising nearly $35 million for children in need. I believe this partnership will continue to bring hope and opportunities to many more.”As part of its support, Starwood fundraising has helped Unicef to: • Provide nearly 460,000 Syrian children with an education between 2012 and 2015 • Provide life-saving clean water for 1.8 million people across central and southern Somalia in 2011 (with support of other partners) • Establish 65 schools in Pakistan following devastating floods to help 10,627 children continue their education in 2011 • Distribute 20,000 mosquito nets to remote communities in Ethiopia in 2009 • Immunise an estimated 1 million children against six killer diseases when the partnership began in 1995last_img read more
