They are two points from the safety line and boss Nigel Pearson insisted their belief has never wavered. He said: “The dressing room always had belief in itself – what’s important is, when results are not going your way, you stay in contact and that’s what we’ve been about until we can make changes. “We’re in the January window now and whether we can add to the squad significantly remains be seen but the point is I never doubted our ability. “It’s nice to be talking on the back of decent results.” Striker Andrej Kramaric watched the win ahead of completing what is expected to be a club-record deal from Croatian side Rijeka once he obtains a work permit. “We’ve got to get over the line with that deal – it’s not prudent to talk too much about that. It’s difficult to obtain a work permit,” Pearson said. “He’s a young man who we’ve followed for a long time, he’s not a rabbit out of a hat – and he will add to what we already have here. “That’s what we’re about – adding to the squad – we’re not about replacing what we have.” The only blot was James’ red card after his foul on Clark and, after the pair squared up to each other, they had to be separated as they went down the tunnel. “I’m not prepared to make any comments on it. I will wait to see the report,” Pearson added. Villa went down 1-0 at resurgent Leicester and have won just twice in their last 17 Barclays Premier League games. Paul Konchesky’s winner sunk the visitors who had Ciaran Clark sent off in injury time, following Matty James’ dismissal after the pair clashed. Press Association It was Villa’s fourth red card in their last seven outings and came after the visiting fans chanted “We want Lambert out” for a second game in a row. But with Villa 13th and three points above the drop zone, Lambert insisted he will come out fighting. He said: “It is a great club and has a great fanbase. You have to take it and come through it. There are only two ways you will go, sink or swim, and I am certainly not going roll over. “They pay a lot of money to come and watch and I don’t want Aston Villa to keep doing what they are doing. “I think more importantly it’s the game, rather than people aiming things at myself. It’s the game and we didn’t do enough in the last third.” And Lambert felt Clark left referee Michael Oliver with little choice but dismiss him after he squared up to James following the Leicester man’s poor tackle. He said: “It was a bad challenge initially, Ciaran’s run in to help Jores (Okore). Ciaran has not helped himself as he was on a yellow card. I think the fracas was nothing.” The Foxes are still bottom but are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions and are just five points from 12th place in a congested table. Defiant Paul Lambert vowed not to “roll over” after Aston Villa fans again called for his head.

She reportedly paid $7,880 in tuition and fees for the spring semester.Meanwhile, the lawsuit filed last week in Leon County circuit court against the Board of Governors by University of Florida graduate student Anthony Rojas seeks only to obtain a refund of fees, and not tuition.“Plaintiff’s claims relate solely to fees paid by Florida residents for on-campus services and do not concern fees or costs for tuition and/or room and board because students were able to complete their courses and obtain their credits for the spring semester and because the universities have offered appropriate refunds relating to room and board, but not as to fees,” the Rojas lawsuit said.All three of the lawsuits make allegations such as breach of contract and “unjust enrichment.”While the Fagundez and Rojas lawsuits seek are seeking class action status on behalf of students throughout the university system, the Egleston case focuses only on the University of Florida.Judges will end up deciding whether to allow any or all of them to proceed as class action claims. A Florida International University student this week filed what is at least the third potential class-action lawsuit seeking refunds for students within the state university system.The latest complaint, like the others, alleges “inferior” online classes when campuses closed this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.Attorneys for Sarah Fagundez, an FIU graduate student from Miami, filed the suit against the university system’s Board of Governors on Tuesday in Leon County circuit court.Meanwhile, University of Florida student Dylan Egleston filed a similar lawsuit on Monday against the UF Board of Trustees. That action also followed another case that was filed against the Board of Governors in circuit court.Fagundez argues that she and other students in the university system should receive refunds for parts of tuition and fees they paid for the spring and summer semesters.“Plaintiff (Fagundez) does not impugn defendant for taking measures to protect the public health; but the defendant must acknowledge that the education and services it now provides to students throughout the university system lack the full value of those for which plaintiff and the class paid,” Tuesday’s lawsuit against the Board of Governors said.It continues, “Not only is a fully online college experience inferior, socially and academically, to the in-person experience for which plaintiff and the class paid; but the university system’s ersatz online courses now offered to students are inferior to online courses that were conceived as such in the first instance.”
Facebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Board of County CommissionersThurston County Public Health has lifted the toxic algae-related warning for Summit Lake. Sample results for the last two weeks show that Anatoxin-a concentrations in the water are less than one microgram per liter, the level of public health concern.The sample taken on May 13, 2018 had Anatoxin-a at 0.59 ug/L, below the level of public health concern for the second consecutive week. The results for the first sample taken on Monday, May 7, 2018 showed toxin levels were at 0.076 micrograms per liter.Since April 24, Summit Lake has been under a toxic algae alert recommending not drinking or using the lake water for the roughly 400 homes that surround the lake.Health Department staff will monitor the lake for toxin producing algae blooms only when residents report a new algae bloom. Residents can sign up for email updates and advisories for Summit Lake by calling Thurston County Public Health at 360-867-2626.“It’s important for residents of all our lakes to understand that algae blooms tend to increase in the summer months, when the weather is warmer,” said Art Starry, Environmental Health Division Director. “While science doesn’t yet know what makes an algae bloom become toxic, we do see patterns that indicate people should use extra caution in the warmer months. A catch phrase that may help is, ‘when in doubt—stay out.’”Residents should flush their water systems any time an algae alert is lifted, prior to drinking from their taps.
