Hakimi agent not ruling out permanent Dortmund switch

first_imgAchraf Hakimi has not ruled out the possibility of making his loan from Real Madrid to Borussia Dortmund permanent, according to the player’s agent.The Bundesliga club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said earlier this week he wanted to do a deal for the 20-year-old left-back after securing another loanee – striker Paco Alcacer – outright from Barcelona.And Morocco international Hakimi, who is on a two-year loan from the Bernabeu giants, is enjoying life in Germany.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! His agent Alejandro Camano told Goal and SPOX: “Borussia Dortmund is an amazing club and already feels like home for Achraf. “He feels really comfortable and is enjoying his time.”After Watzke celebrated securing Alcacer, he stated his intention of doing the same with Hakimi.”Dear Paco Alcacer, welcome to Borussia Dortmund,” he said.”And Achraf Hakimi – we will try to do the same thing with you, even though it will not be easy.”Alcacer’s loan deal had a clause for the option of a permanent deal written into it, and although Hakimi’s does not, Camano says Hakimi is grateful to able to stake his claim in Dortmund.”We will see what the future brings,” he added. “We don’t think about Real Madrid.”The deal between the clubs did not change and there were no talks with Real since he left them.”We are thankful to Dortmund for the chance that Achraf can play at the highest level in an amazing league like the Bundesliga. Only that counts.”Hakimi has made eight appearances in table-topping Dortmund’s unbeaten start to the Bundesliga season and has played twice in the Champions League, after making just nine league appearances for Madrid in 2017-18 under former coach Zinedine Zidane.Six assists in that time have raised his stock, though without an option to sign the full-back at the end of his loan spell, Dortmund may need to pay out a sizeable figure.last_img read more

DRS to be used in T20Is, teams to not lose reviews on ‘umpire’s call’ in LBW decisions

first_imgThe International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executives’ committee has approved all recommendations made by the ICC cricket committee in May, which include the use of Decision Review System (DRS) in all T20I games and teams not losing a review when an LBW review comes back as Umpire’s Call.This means that from October 1, teams will not lose a review for “umpire’s call” verdicts under the DRS.The 80 over top-up of reviews in Test cricket has been removed. The committee also approved the minimum standards for the use of DRS for international cricket. This includes the mandatory use of accredited ball tracking and edge detection technology.From October 1, teams will not lose a review for “umpire’s call” verdicts under the decision review system (DRS). The ICC chief executives’ committee on Friday approved this and all other recommendations made by the ICC cricket committee in May.A number of the approved recommendations were related to the DRS. Teams will no longer have their reviews topped up at the 80-over mark in Test matches. DRS, meanwhile, will now be used in the T20I format as well.The other changes approved by the committee include:- Bat size restrictionsIn order to restore the balance between bat and ball, the ICC approved recommendations relating to bat sizes.The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) World Cricket Committee in Mumbai, which included Australian legend Ricky Ponting among other cricket luminaries and is chaired by former England captain Mike Brearley, last year suggested that size of a bat’s edges and depths should be limited to 40 mm and 67 mm, respectively.advertisement”As a result, the main Committee of MCC will be asked to approve a limit to bat edges of 40mm and bat depths of 67mm (60mm for the depth plus an allowance of 7mm for a possible curve on the face of the bat). If approved, these changes will be implemented into the new code of the Laws of Cricket, which will be introduced on 1 October 2017,” the MCC suggested.”Many of the top players’ bats have edges of between 38mm and 42mm, but there are some which have edges of up to 50mm, which was felt to be excessive and in need of restriction,” the governing body emphasised.- Punishments for on-field misconductAs in football, umpires will now be vested with the power to send players off the field for serious incidents of misconduct. “All Members,” the ICC said, “have agreed to implement this in full.””The MCC world cricket committee recommended that umpires be empowered “to eject cricketers from a game for serious disciplinary breaches” such as threatening an umpire, physically assaulting another player, umpire, official or spectator, and any other act of violence on the field,” the MCC had in December said in a release.”The World Cricket committee believes that the game must now include a mechanism to deal with the worst disciplinary offences during the match and not subsequent to it as is presently the case. If approved, the ability to send a player off would therefore come into effect at all levels of the game from 1st October 2017,” it added.- Run-out rule changeBatsmen will be ruled to have made their ground if their bat bounces after being grounded behind the crease.last_img read more

US Court Says Moroccos Justice Is Fundamentally Fair Upholds 123 Million

New York – The US Federal Court of Appeals upheld the Moroccan Court’s judgment to enforce a $123 million fine that the US District Court had refused on the DeJoria v. Maghreb Petroleum Exploration case.According to a The Washington Post report by Eugene Volokh, last August a $123 million judgment in Morocco was denied by the Texas District Court. The foreign judgment was denied because it was allegedly “not rendered under a system that provides impartial tribunals and procedures compatible with due process.”However, the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit overruled the District Court’s decision on Wednesday and upheld the original claim, demonstrating that the Moroccan judiciary is in fact compatible with the “international due process standard”. To justify its ruling against Morocco, the Texas court used a 2010 report from the US Agency of International Development (USAID) entitled “Morocco Rule of Law Report,” according to which Moroccan citizens feel that “there is a widely held perception that corruption is tolerated, that a political and security elite act with impunity, and that strong actions are taken against those who would challenge power.”According to the same report, the Moroccan judiciary is “permeable to political influence”, and its judges are “vulnerable to political retribution.”Nevertheless, in the DeJoria v. Maghreb Petroleum Exploration, there was no evidence that “the King or anyone else in Morocco these days cares about [DeJoria] at all or even remembers who he is or the bad acts he perpetrated.”The Fifth Circuit ruled Morocco’s system as “fundamentally fair” and enforced the judgment because “a case of serious injustice must be involved” to rule otherwise.Under the Texas Recognition Act on foreign judgments, “[T]he statute requires only the use of procedures compatible with the requirements of due process. [T]he foreign proceedings need not comply with the traditional rigors of American due process to meet the requirements of enforceability under the statute.”Azzedine Kabbaj, a Moroccan attorney with 35 years of experience testified in the case to defend the Kingdom’s judicial system. Kabbaj said the Moroccan system “places great emphasis” on giving “actual notice” of lawsuits to defendants, hears experts’ opinions, and provides defendants the right to appeal.Abed Awad, an adjunct professor at Rutgers University School of Law, said that Moroccan and American commercial courts follow the same procedures. Morocco’s judicial system does “adher[e] to international standards.”The same USAID report said the Monarchy “has made judicial reform one of its key objectives,” to “make strides” in ruling according to the rule of law as a critical factor in its development.Despite addressing Morocco’s lack of judicial independence, the report stated that the “Monarchy’s interest in reforming the justice sector is a positive sign.”The World Bank also recognized the Moroccan judiciary as “indisputable” with an “enhanced drive toward an independent judiciary.”The State Department confirmed that Morocco’s reforms are “intended to increase judicial independence and impartiality.”The Texas Recognition Act requires that a “debtor” prove the lack of an “impartial tribunal or procedures compatible with due process so as to justify routine non-recognition of the foreign judgments.”In the DeJoria v. Maghreb case, based on the evidence, DeJoria failed to prove his appeal. The US Court of Appeals ruled, “We cannot agree that the Moroccan judicial system lacks sufficient independence such that fair litigation in Morocco is impossible.”The due process requirement is not “intended to bar the enforcement of all judgments of any foreign legal system that does not conform its procedural doctrines to the latest twist and turn of our courts.” Therefore, Moroccan judgments need not be disregarded.There was no evidence that an American did not “receive due process or impartial tribunals” in Morocco. There was no evidence of an anti-American sentiment in Morocco, since US companies do business in the Kingdom.Moreover, the judicial system in Morocco is not in “complete collapse,” nor was there evidence of a disregard for the “rule of law”. Thus, the Moroccan judiciary does not “offend against basic fairness,”The case was not considered a “serious injustice,” “fundamentally unfair,” or “incompatible with due process.” The US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit overruled the district court’s decision, trusting the Moroccan judicial system as no evidence was found on the contrary.PHOTO: SUSAN WALSH/ASSOCIATED PRESS© Morocco World News.

White House business groups make push on trade pact

WASHINGTON — The White House and business groups are stepping up efforts to win congressional approval for the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade accord.But prospects are uncertain given that Republicans are at odds with some aspects of the plan and Democrats are in no hurry to secure a political victory for the president.President Donald Trump will meet with GOP lawmakers Tuesday to try to kick-start the process for rounding up votes on Capitol Hill. Supporters in Congress and business groups say they have a narrow window to push it through, given that lawmakers tend to avoid tough trade votes during election season.The chairman of the House subcommittee that has jurisdiction over trade, Democratic congressman Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, says the pact needs adjustments to be “worthy of support.”Kevin Freking, The Associated Press read more

Ohio State softball using early tests as measuring sticks

The Big Ten season is still more than a month away, but the early season tournaments that prepare the Ohio State softball team (7-3, 0-0) for the grind of conference play are starting to heat up. The OSU softball team travels to Cathedral City, Calif., on Friday to participate in the Mary Nutter Classic, where it will play five games over the weekend, two against ranked opponents (No. 11 LSU and No. 14 Arizona, both on Friday). “The Mary Nutter Classic is one of the premier tournaments every year, so of course the girls are excited,” said first-year coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly. “We’re going to play some ranked opponents … but the game doesn’t know who’s ranked, so you just have to go out there and play it.” The tournament comes about a week after OSU’s participation in the Jacksonville University Tournament, which saw the unranked Buckeyes go 3-2 on the weekend, including a 1-0 upset of No. 16/17 Louisville. “We came out strong,” said sophomore outfielder Taylor Watkins. “We should have beat some teams, but we did our best and stuck together in all the situations we were put in.” The biggest news from the weekend in Jacksonville was the emergence of sophomore pitcher Alex DiDomenico. The 5-foot-9 right-hander from Youngstown, Ohio, completed 15 innings for the weekend, holding batters to a .130 average. Her four-hit, eight-inning shut-out of Louisville was the centerpiece to a weekend that saw her named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week on Monday, her first such honor. “I was really happy about it,” DiDomenico said. “I was shocked actually, but I mean, it felt really good.” Her coach echoed the Big Ten’s praise. “I think Alex has grown a lot in the last six months,” Schoenly said. “When she hits her spots, she can have a lot of success, and I think it’s a really big confidence boost for her.” The Buckeyes sport a 2-1 record against ranked foes on the year. Their single defeat was a 6-1 loss against then-No. 8 Georgia on Feb. 8 in Athens, Ga., a defeat they avenged the next day with a 5-4 win. “The competition is what I’m really looking forward to,” DiDomenico said. “I think it will be a good experience … we’re just working to get better. We can never get too good.” Visit www.thelantern.com for the rest of this story. The Buckeyes are using these early season tests as measuring sticks as they head toward the Big Ten season, which for them begins on March 22 at home against Indiana. “It shows us who we can beat and how good we are and what we need to work on,” Watkins said. “It shows us that we can play against those ranked teams.” While OSU knows these early season games are valuable learning tools, the team knows the real test begins once conference play starts. Schoenly is focused on keeping the team concentrated on the present and getting better each day as conference season looms. “We fully expect to be better a month from now than we are now, because we’re better now than we were a month ago,” Schoenly said. “If they just keep buying into the fact that we need to continue to get better as the season goes on, we’ll be ready when conference season comes.” The Mary Nutter Classic begins Friday and ends Sunday. OSU is scheduled to play No. 11 LSU, No. 14 Arizona, California Polytechnic State University, San Diego State and Utah on the weekend. read more

Ohio State womens ice hockey crushed twice in Wisconsin

Then-sophomore forward Katie Matheny (23) skates down the ice during a game against New Hampshire on Oct. 4, 2014 at the Ohio State Ice Rink. OSU won, 4-3. Credit: Lantern file photoAgainst the high-scoring Wisconsin Badgers, the Ohio State women’s hockey team failed to sustain momentum after its opening-weekend victories against Lindenwood, getting dismantled twice.The Buckeyes allowed 15 goals on 102 shots in the two games, including a combined five first-period goals. Conversely, the Scarlet and Gray only took a combined 29 shots of its own in the two games.The third-ranked Badgers’ goal scoring opened early on Saturday when sophomore forward Emily Clark tallied a point 30 seconds into the game. The Badgers would proceed to score three goals on the power play in the third period of the first game, en route to topping the Buckeyes 7-0.Special teams play had been an emerging strength for OSU early in the season, but the series against Wisconsin demonstrated that there is still plenty of work to be done. In addition to the three goals the Buckeyes allowed with a player in the box, the Badgers scored a goal while on the penalty kill on Saturday. The Buckeyes went 0-of-4 in power-play opportunities on Sunday, which ended as another lopsided loss by the final score of 8-0.The squad’s strongest period of play from the weekend was the second period on Sunday, when OSU recorded nine shots on goal and successfully killed two penalties, and despite the penalties was able to control the pace of play for much of the period. The Buckeyes will look to get back on track when they return to Columbus for their first home series of the season against Minnesota beginning on Friday. The puck is set to drop in the first game at 6:07 p.m. and 2:07 p.m. the following day. read more

Mens Youth WCh Argentina 2011 Denmark takes Gold

Denmark is the winner of the IV Men’s Youth World Championship. In a dramatic final the Danish youngsters beat Spain 24:22 (13:17).The first half was played with an applied brake. Both teams acted nervously, in fact strong in defence, but with a lot of mistakes in offence. Also both goalkeepers were not in there best shape at that time. Only during the last ten minutes of the first half, the Spanish “Handball-Toreros” danced more and more throughout the Danish defence-wall and took a 17:13 lead after the first 30 minutes.At the beginning of the second half the Danish dynamite lit. The Scandinavians caught up to 17:17 tie after 40 minutes and also Spain fought and could increase again to a 19:17 and 20:18 advantage. But nevertheless, the powerful handball “made in Denmark” dominated and the North Europeans caught up for a second time. Spain got under pressure and the dramatic highlight still followed one minute before the end of this final game: Nicolai Sommer scored a 23:22 penalty for Denmark, the Spanish attack was defeated and the last goal for Denmark, scored by left back Theis Baagoe, was only a bonus. The Danish cheered their victory hilariously.It was the second gold medal for a Danish team; the Scandinavians also won in 2007 the II Youth World Championship in Bahrain. Gold was also the next great success for the Danish handball: Within the year 2011, the Danish men’s teams had competed in total three times at World Championships – and all three teams had reached the final. No other nation has ever achieved such an amazing result. In Mar del Plata, the literal translation of the name of the city means “Silver Sea”, the Scandinavians reached the gold medal, the best color of a medal. The men’s senior- and junior team had won Silver at the previous World Championships in 2011.For the talents from Spain this silver medal was the first medal ever in the history of Men’s Youth World Championships. Sweden won Bronze with a 28:24-victory against France.Even before the beginning of the final match, Marisa Vargas, member of the district government of Buenos Aires, thanked the organiser for their hard work. “The tournament was a highlight for Mar del Plata and the entire district”, Vargas said. About 45.000 spectators visited the 64 matches in the last 10 days.All Star Team:BEST LEFT  WING: Hugo DESCAT (FRA)BEST RIGHT WING: Mario SOSTARCIC (SLO)BEST PIVOT: Ignacio Plaza JIMENEZ (ESP)BEST LEFT BACK: Theis BAAGOE (DEN)BEST CENTER BACK: Aitor ARINO (ESP)BEST RIGHT BACK: Martin LARSEN (DEN)BEST GOALKEEPER: Nikola PORTNER (SUI)MVP: Jim GOTTFRIDSSSON (SWE)BEST SCORER: Jim GOTTFRIDSSSON (SWE) 58 GOALSMOST PROMISING PLAYER: Nicolai PEDERSEN (DEN)Final Standings:1 DEN (DENMARK)2 ESP (SPAIN)3 SWE (SWEDEN)4 FRA (FRANCE)5 EGY (EGYPT)6 SUI (SWITZERLAND)7 GER (GERMANY)8 CRO (CROATIA)9 SLO (SLOVENIA)10 ARG (ARGENTINA)11 KOR (KOREA)12 BRA (BRAZIL)13 RUS (RUSSIA)14 SRB (SERBIA)15 QAT (QATAR)16 CHI (CHILE)17 BRN (BAHRAIN)18 TUN (TUNISIA)19 GAB (GABON)20 NZL (NEW ZEALAND) ← Previous Story Stojanovic to be operated again?

Microsoft creates the Holoflector takes a step closer to Total Recall

first_imgIf you’ve watched the movie Total Recall, then you’ve probably wondered when body scanners will become that advanced. Well, Microsoft Research hasn’t developed a body scanner, but its latest experiment looks like it could certainly recreate that scene from the movie with a bit more work.The device carries the appropriately futuristic name of Holoflector. It consists of an LCD panel mounted 3-feet behind a translucent mirror large enough for a person to stand in front of. A Kinect motion sensor is also integrated to track people standing in front of it. By combining an LCD and translucent mirror, the user is able to see their own reflection, but also have that augmented by whatever is displayed on the LCD behind the mirror. As Kinect can track your movements, what is rendered to the screen can match what your body does, or highlight objects you are holding. It also works for multiple users, just like Kinect for Xbox 360 allows.Although it’s unlikely anyone will have a mirror and display this large in their home anytime soon, it will certainly be noticed by advertisers. Sticking one of these systems in a mall and having people interacting with an advert, for example, certainly ups the engagement factor. As does a publisher like EA allowing you to become part of a game advert e.g. being the person on the board traveling down an SSX course.The Holoflector is just a prototype unit at the moment, but just like the Illumishare we saw earlier today, it doesn’t actually use any brand new hardware and therefore shouldn’t be too expensive. That translates into an idea that could reach the market in some form quite quickly. Read more at GeekWirelast_img read more

Border Patrol arrests 32 at San Diego demonstration

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News Tags: Immigration FacebookTwitter December 10, 2018 AP, Border Patrol arrests 32 at San Diego demonstration AP Posted: December 10, 2018 SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 32 people at a demonstration Monday that was organized by a Quaker group on the border with Mexico, authorities said. Demonstrators were calling for an end to detaining and deporting immigrants and showing support for migrants in a caravan of Central American asylum seekers.A photographer for The Associated Press saw about a dozen people being handcuffed after they were told by agents to back away from a wall that the Border Patrol calls “an enforcement zone.” The American Friends Service Committee, which organized the demonstration, said 30 people were stopped by agents in riot gear and taken into custody while they tried to move forward to offer a ceremonial blessing near the wall.Border Patrol spokesman Theron Francisco said 31 people were arrested for trespassing and one was arrested for assaulting an officer.More than 300 people, many the leaders of churches, mosques, synagogues and indigenous communities, participated in the demonstration at San Diego’s Border Field State Park, which borders Tijuana, Mexico.The rally held on a beach divided by the border wall was the second confrontation for Border Patrol agents since a caravan of more than 6,000 migrants, predominantly Hondurans, reached Tijuana last month. A confrontation with rock-throwers from Mexico led to U.S. agents firing tear gas into Mexico on Nov. 25 and a five-hour closure of the nation’s busiest border crossing.Thousands of migrants are living in crowded tent cities in Tijuana after undertaking a grueling journey from Central America to the U.S. border. Many face waiting weeks or months in Mexico while they apply for asylum. The U.S. is processing up to about 100 claims a day at the San Diego crossing, which is creating a backlog.The demonstration Monday was meant to launch a national week of action called “Love Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice,” which falls between Human Rights Day on Monday, and International Migrants’ Day on Dec. 18, the group said.“Showing up to welcome and bless children, mothers and fathers seeking asylum from very difficult and dehumanizing circumstances is the right and humane thing to do,” said Bishop Minerva G. Carcano, from the San Francisco Area United Methodist Church. “How we act in these moments determines who we will become as a nation.”The group also is calling on Congress to defund Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.RELATED STORY: Advocacy group walks to show support for asylum seekers at US-Mexico border last_img read more

Google courts local businesses with new profile features

first_imgGoogle announced new features for local business profiles.  Getty Google wants to become the go-to hub for people searching for restaurants or other local businesses. The search giant on Thursday announced new features to revamp business profiles on Google Maps and search. Those are the pages that give you a restaurant’s rating, a snapshot at popular dishes and general information like store hours or the restaurant’s phone number.Now, business owners will be able to customize the cover photo you see at the top of the profile. Owners will also get to pick a new “short name” URL that customers can use to share the business profile with other people. Businesses can also reward people who follow them on Google by offering them exclusive deals. And the businesses that are most responsive to customers and keep their profiles up to date will be able to earn badges and receive a “local favorite” distinction.mod-1-phone-callouts-d2x-1Google is letting businesses do more to customize their profiles. Google Google is also offering store owners more options for window stickers, like one that says “Review us on Google,” and another that says, “Follow us on Google.””When we first started mapping out the world, we were first focused on getting users from point A to point B,” Bhavesh Mehta, a Google vice president of engineering, said at a press event in San Francisco. “Over time, we saw people wanted more information about businesses.”The new features take aim at other local business services like Yelp, which also offers business profiles with ratings and other information. Yelp has long been antagonistic towards Google’s local business efforts, arguing that Google abuses its dominance to prioritize its own listings and services over those of competitors. Google wouldn’t directly address the competition with Yelp, but said it’s focused on creating a good experience for users.The new features are part of Google’s push to make Maps about more than just navigation. Last year, Google announced features to make the app more social, such as a “for you” tab that offers tailored recommendations and a “match score” to tell you how much you might like a restaurant or business. Business profiles that you follow will show up in the “for you” tab. Google also said last month it’s bringing food ordering to Maps, search and its Google Assistant software by partnering with delivery services including DoorDash and Postmates. 1 Google Search gets AR, and Google Lens wants to be your… Tags Now playing: Watch this: Commentcenter_img Share your voice 4:19 Mobile Google Alphabet Inc.last_img read more

Arizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro 7 ki

first_imgArizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro (7) kicks a field goal as punter Ryan Quigley (9) holds during the second half of a football game against the Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories “It’s just like any other position. We have expectations and if (Catanzaro) can’t meet our expectations, we’ll try and attempt to find somebody who can,” Keim said. “Now, the trying and attempting are a different story because generally, players that are on the street right now are on the street for a reason.“More than likely, it’s because they missed several field goals or missed a kick in a clutch situation or have injury concerns. So there’s a lot of moving parts to that and it’s not as easy as probably most think, but it’s certainly something that on a daily basis, we spend a lot of time researching.”This season, Catanzaro has made 8-of-11 field goal attempts, including a 60-yarder in the loss at Buffalo, which is the longest in the NFL this season. He’s also connected on 14-of-15 extra point attempts and has touchbacks on 70 percent of his kickoffs. – / 46 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo In the season opener vs. New England, also played on Sunday night, Catanzaro missed a 47-yarder with :36 left, hooking it wide-left. The blame, however, went to Canaday for what was called a “low snap” even though the ball never hit the ground until holder Drew Butler bobbled it.The Cardinals, despite being 3-3-1 through seven games, have clearly stated their Super Bowl aspirations on numerous occasions. Can they get there with a kicker who hasn’t delivered in crucial situations?General manager Steve Keim, the architect of the Cardinals’ roster, was vague in his comments about Catanzaro.“He’s a professional and he’s made some big kicks in his time here,” Keim told Doug and Wolf Monday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Yet at the same time consistency is what creates longevity in this league. We have to support him now in a tough time and make sure he continues to do all the little things to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”Keim consistently brings in players at various positions on Tuesdays for workouts to see if they can improve the Cardinals’ roster. It’s how the team acquired punter Ryan Quigley and snapper Aaron Brewer earlier this year. Will he do the same and take a look at some kickers this week?
