Embed from Getty ImagesMany Tottenham fans on Twitter fear the continuing absence of defender Toby Alderweireld could cost them at Chelsea on Saturday.The Belgian centre-back has been out for more than five weeks with a knee injury and boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed he will miss the trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend.With left-back Danny Rose suspended, some Spurs supporters, already licking their wounds from their team’s group-stage exit in the Champions League, are preparing themselves for the worst.I’d back us to get a result vs any side in the PL if our strongest team is available. Dreading Saturday without Rose & Alderweireld. #thfc— Sean (@Tottingham_Sean) November 23, 2016Thought Alderweireld’s injury was ‘not a big issue’?? Out since 15 Oct. And no sign of return. No Rose & no Toby vs CFC??

The advisory to Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and tourists to exit Jammu and Kashmir due to terror threats is extremely angering, Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray said on Friday. In a series of tweets, Mr. Thackeray said he has “full faith” that the Modi government and India’s armed forces will “purge” terrorists who threaten pilgrims and tourists. He tweeted, “Im sure we have the strength to purge out terrorists from J&K at the will of our Govt and not give into these threats, while ensuring safety of every pilgrim.” His remarks came after the Army cited intelligence inputs to claim that Pakistan-based terrorists are planning to target the ongoing Amarnath Yatra, prompting the Jammu and Kashmir administration to ask the yatris and tourists to “curtail” their stay in the Valley and leave the State immediately. Stating that weapons and explosives have been recovered along the yatra route, a top Army official said security forces are geared up to foil any attempt to attack the pilgrimage. The yatra commenced on July 1 and is to conclude on August 15.
Jurgen Klopp felt Mohamed Salah underperformed in Liverpool’s 2-0 Premier League win at Crystal Palace despite the Egypt forward’s involvement in both goals.Salah was fouled by Mamadou Sakho inside the penalty area at the end of the first half, allowing James Milner to score from the spot and put the Reds in front.Aaron Wan-Bissaka was dismissed with 15 minutes to go for bundling over Salah, who went on to send Sadio Mane racing clear to wrap up the points with a stoppage-time finish.

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! But while Salah made a decisive impact he was surprisingly wasteful in front of goal, including lifting a lob over the crossbar after controlling Naby Keita’s sensational long pass.”There’s nothing to say about individual performances, but Mo Salah can play much better, that’s obvious,” Klopp told reporters.”Yet he was decisively involved in both goals, that’s two assists pretty much, so I am fine with that.”We can play much better as a team, that means immediately he is involved more, and that’s all good.”While Klopp called for more from Liverpool’s leading scorer from last season, the manager was thrilled with Alisson, who recorded a second consecutive clean sheet.The Brazil international – who acrobatically kept out Luka Milivojevic’s free-kick early in the second half – has quickly settled into life at his new club following his arrival from Roma.”The free-kick save was outstanding,” Klopp said of Alisson’s eye-catching stop. “I saw it, it was not the goalkeeper’s corner, so it was quite impressive. So was the save from the [Christian] Benteke header.”Around each set-piece, Palace block the goalkeeper and [Virgil] van Dijk, and both were most decisive in these situations. They worked through the forest of people. That was all good.”But it was not a brilliant football game from us. We won it because we scored in two very decisive moments. That’s good, a big step for us. Everyone who watches us knows if we are not brilliant we usually lose. Today we were not brilliant but we still won. That was nice!”Having preserved their perfect start, Liverpool next face Brighton at home at Anfield on August 25.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Murphy questions Man Utd winger James for ‘weird’ actingby Freddie Taylor10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy was not impressed with Wales’ concussion protocol in their game against Croatia.The Welsh were involved in a Euro 2020 qualifier, which finished 1-1.An incident involving Manchester United winger Daniel James took fans by surprise.The player appeared knocked out after a rough challenge, but eventually got up and carried on for the rest of the game.Wales manager Ryan Giggs later said that James was not concussed, but merely play acting to waste time.Murphy said on talkSPORT about the situation: “He wasn’t trying to stop them on the counter, it was Wales on a break, I don’t think he was tired. “So what was his reasoning?”If he is telling the truth, let’s believe the lad, if he is saying he made the most of it – why?”I’ve not seen that before, I think that’s a bit weird.”
In less than a week, you may have heard, there’s a midterm election in the United States of America. This is sort of a big deal for us at FiveThirtyEight. Such a big deal that our estimable tech team of Jeremy Weinrib and Paul Schreiber arranged a fancy live-blogging platform so you can snuggle up next to us for hours on election night. It’ll be cozy.We’ve known for weeks that we’d need to give the platform a test drive, and we decided that we’d do that Wednesday, on the second night of the NBA season. We’d get together our crew of basketball writers (the ones who wrote our NBA team previews), buy some pizzas and use an algorithm to project whether Giannis Antetokounmpo has finally stopped growing.But as the San Francisco Giants discovered last night, Jake Peavy has a habit of ruining the best-laid plans.About the time Game 6 of the World Series passed a 95 percent win probability, we made the call to scuttle the NBA live blog. Instead, you’ll get to hang with us as we watch Game 7. We’ll argue that Jeremy Guthrie shouldn’t pitch more than three innings, locate where the Giants dynasty of the past five seasons would rank compared to others and, Yost-willing, debate the merits of the sacrifice bunt.It’s going to be great. Or a total disaster. Come and find out which. 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Here on FiveThirtyEight.
The Ohio State women’s volleyball team (13-2) faces two Big Ten teams at home this weekend.Among the 331 Division I teams, the Buckeyes fall just short of the top 25. Competition in the Big Ten is fierce, as seven of the top 25 teams are Big Ten schools. The team faces Wisconsin on Friday at St. John Arena. Wisconsin (5-6) is struggling at the start of its season.The Iowa Hawkeyes (9-5) make their trip to St. John Arena Saturday.Both Wisconsin and Iowa are ranked ouside of the top 25, and Iowa recently beat the Badgers 3-1. “Wisconsin is a much bigger team, but Iowa is playing well and their win over Wisconsin gave them confidence,” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said. The team has been anticipating these two Big Ten matchups. Carlston recognizes that early in the season each team is still getting into its own rhythm. The Buckeyes’ goal this week has been to focus on themselves instead of what the other team is bringing to the floor. “We just need to find our offensive balance and outplay them on the defensive side of the game,” Carlston said. Power players this year are outside hitter junior Katie Dull and middle blocker senior Kristen Dozier. Both matches are set for 7 p.m. at St. John Arena.
Paolo’s first car, of course, was a building: il Lioncini, a camper-van he built in Vietri in 1949, with studio, kitchen, sofa, storage space for a Lambretta scooter, etc. The conversation very quickly came ’round to the real meaning of the car, and car-culture, and urban sprawl, the notion of “reformulation” of the urban landscape, and LEAN LINEAR CITY rail transportation.

AddThis ShareDavid [email protected] Jeff [email protected] Rice University health care experts available to comment on Supreme Court’s impending Affordable Care Act rulingHo and Marks: Stakes are high for all Americans HOUSTON – (June 19, 2012) – As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to rule on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) this month, the stakes are high for all Americans. What the nine justices decide, and exactly how they craft their lengthy opinion, has been the topic of much speculation.Two health care experts at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy can speak about the potential ruling’s local and national implications and why Texas is an example of what the nation will look like without ACA:Vivian Ho, the James A. Baker III Institute Chair in Health Economics.Elena Marks, the Baker Institute Scholar in Health Policy.Ho’s key points:“Some of the nation’s most highly regarded economists with years of experience in health economics promoted the inclusion of the individual mandate in the ACA. The mandate is a vital partner to the ACA’s requirement that insurers accept all customers in 2014 regardless of pre-existing conditions. Without the mandate, people could forgo the purchase of health insurance while they are healthy, then buy insurance if they fall seriously ill and require significant medical care. Their costs would drive up costs for insurers, who would then have to pass these expenses on in terms of higher health insurance premiums to all of their customers. Thus, the mandate prevents free riders from taking advantage of honest customers as well as taxpayers, who foot the bill for many of the uninsured through local public hospitals and clinics. That said, the overwhelming majority of the ACA can still stand without the mandate.”“If the entire ACA is struck down by the Supreme Court, health care costs will continue to consume a larger portion of our nation’s economy and a larger share of workers’ paychecks for the foreseeable future. The legislation is a dramatic attempt to solve a dramatic problem facing our economy and the well-being of our citizens. There are no easy to solutions to the problem. The ACA was written with the advice of some of the best health economists in the country, based on years of research and the best data available.”Marks’ key points:“Texas is an example of what the rest of the US will begin to look like without ACA: The goals of the ACA were to increase access to care and rein in costs that routinely outpaced all other indices. The primary mechanism for increasing access was to increase insurance coverage — for poor people through a Medicaid expansion, and for others through changes in the health insurance industry. The insurance industry changes would be effected through the combination of the mandates (there are large employer mandates as well) and new industry regulations including guaranteed issue, community-rated pricing, medical loss ratio requirements and premium setting rules. These reforms would have benefited Texas more than any other state –because we have the largest percentage of uninsured. Texas is a poor state — with 25 percent of the population living in poverty, compared to 16 percent nationwide. Thus, Medicaid expansion would have benefited Texas more than most states. Of the 6 million uninsured Texans, 2.6 million would be covered under expanded Medicaid.” “An additional 2.8 million Texans living just above the poverty line would qualify for subsidies with which to purchase private insurance in a market subject to consumer-protective regulations. Currently, health plans in Texas are not required to spend any particular amount of premium dollars on medical care, and they are not even required to report to their customers how they spend premium dollars. They are also allowed to raise their premiums as much as they want without regulatory approval. Because of the ACA, in 2012, 92 percent of the Texans who purchased plans in the individual market will receive rebates of approximately $127 million from insurance companies that did not meet the ACA’s medical loss ratio requirements. This is more than any other state; the next highest was Florida at $29 million.” The Baker Institute has a radio and television studio available for media who want to schedule an interview with Ho or Marks.
