Now they face off against Arsenal at home in their next Premier League game.And Neville believes they will not be good enough unless they make significant investments in the transfer market.The ex-England defender said: “Ole will realise that that’s a really poor performance and that he has a lot of work to do.”This team is not ready. There will be lots of pain and it was painful today.”They were lethargic. When you let games drift and pass by, other teams gain confidence.”I’m not panicking but they need to really quickly and efficiently identify five or players to go alongside [David] De Gea, [Harry] Maguire.”They need a couple of midfielders, a striker to carry the frontline, a wide player and a left back.”

The flags above the legislature are at half mast starting today, Sept. 5, out of respect for Warrant Officer Frank Robert Mellish of Truro who died Sunday in Afghanistan. “Our sympathies go out to Warrant Officer Mellish’s mother and father, his wife and sons, and the rest of his family and friends,” said Premier Rodney MacDonald. Warrant Officer Mellish and three other Canadian soldiers died fighting insurgent forces as the Canadians advanced on Taliban positions. The premier also extends sympathies and thoughts for Warrant Officer Mellish’s comrades — the men and women of the Canadian Forces carrying out their duty as part of the NATO mission in Afghanistan.
OTTAWA — Pathways around Parliament Hill rebuilt to resist high water after flooding in 2017 didn’t all hold up the flood of 2019.Water levels in Ottawa remain a metre above normal and crews working for the National Capital Commission are just beginning to assess the damage to infrastructure near the Ottawa River.The body responsible for federal land in the capital spent $6 million on repairs after the last flood, keeping some popular tourist paths closed for many months for extensive reconstruction.The commission’s Dominique Huras says artificial rock formations installed along the Ottawa River to protect against erosion after flooding two years ago seem to have held but new vegetation hadn’t had time to take root before the water rose again.Huras says planners are interested to see what the damage is at different places along the river, to learn what worked and what didn’t.She says the commission is learning it can no longer treat extreme events like flooding as “exceptional.”The Canadian Press

MONTREAL – The head of Canadian National Railway says rival Canadian Pacific Railway will eventually catch up to its industry-leading performance with new CEO Hunter Harrison at the helm and it will benefit the entire industry.Claude Mongeau told a CIBC investor conference Wednesday that his former mentor and boss will improve the basic fundamentals of the Calgary-based railway.“While they focus on fixing the basics. we’re charting ahead on a course which I believe is constructive for the industry,” he said.“At some point they’ll catch up, but we’re not going to make it easy.”While the two railway network don’t overlap everywhere, they do in congested areas like Vancouver.“If both railroads have the same mentality of managing a pipeline, of understanding what it takes to promote efficiency and asset utilization, fluidity and velocity then we should be able to go through tough places like Vancouver more effectively, so I see that as constructive from a railroad standpoint,” said Mongeau, who succeeded Harrison as chief executive at CN (TSX:CNR).He noted the railway has been experiencing a “soft patch” this quarter, but said he believes that barring an outside shock it can deliver years of solid returns.Meanwhile Brian Grassby, senior vice-president finance for CP, told the conference that Harrison continues to examine the railway’s network and terminals, ask questions and focus on service as it tests a new train design.Already, he said the speed of decision making has been improved and there is an increased focus by employees on service and controlling costs.“Most people are embracing the change,” he said.Grassby said CP is performing better than last year and sustaining the new performance level.While the U.S. grain crop has been hit by a severe drought, a good harvest is expected in Canada helped by strong prices and global demand.CP also foresees growth opportunities for potash and oil.However, analysts have suggested CP will report “disappointing” results on Oct. 23 for the third quarter on modest volume growth due to short-term challenges for potash and agricultural products.Analyst Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets said he doesn’t expect the results will temper investor optimism in the railway’s new CEO, who will report on his plans at an investor day in December.“We continue to have strong conviction in CP’s long-term prospects as the company continues to make progress on operating initiatives and is executing on growth in strategic markets,” he wrote in a report.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, CN’s shares lost three cents at $91.59, while CP’s shares gained $1.55 to $82.92 in Wednesday trading.

The sensual nature of modern times has seeped into college football. Offense has never been sexier. Whether it’s Penn State’s Spread HD, Oregon’s wide-open zone read or Florida’s shotgun spread offense, teams are piling up both points and “style points” in recent years. In 2008, Oklahoma rode the arm of Heisman winner Sam Bradford all the way to the national title game, smashing record after record in its path, eclipsing the mark for most points in a season. Four-star quarterbacks Bradford, Tim Tebow of Florida, Colt McCoy of Texas and Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame, defined the 2009 season. But substance doesn’t always translate to success. None of those teams won the big prize last season. Reigning national champion Alabama relied on a stout defense and a run-heavy playbook that would make Woody Hayes smile in its run to the top. The Ohio State offense will attempt to emulate the Crimson Tide’s winning formula in its push for an eighth national championship. That’s not to say OSU will run a “run and hide” offense a la the 2002 national championship team; anyone who has seen the first three games of the season would testify otherwise. But to attain success in football, one must protect the ball. Before the advent of the forward pass and subsequent explosion of offense in the game, field position ranked a close second. Thanks to the speed and athleticism of modern players, that’s no longer true. But that doesn’t mean coaches have forgotten about it. Jim Tressel believes the most important play in football is the punt. The punt is about as sexy as Larry the Cable Guy in a wet suit. Fortunately for OSU and its fans, the Buckeye offense has more than passed the eye test this year, becoming more Boise State than “three yards and a cloud of dust.” Part of that is because of the maturation of quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The reason Pryor has been given the keys to the sports car instead of the minivan this year is simple: He has minimized his turnovers. So long as No. 2 plays smart football, we won’t see the field-position, run-heavy offense Tressel employed following the Purdue loss last season. In fact, OSU leads the nation so far this season with a plus-10 turnover margin. That bodes well for an experienced team with a stifling defense, a balanced offense and a coach that knows how to close out games. In 2009, Boise State, who finished the season undefeated and beat TCU in the Fiesta Bowl, finished second in the nation in turnover margin. National champion Alabama finished No. 4. The top two teams in 2008? Florida and Oklahoma. The top teams in turnover margin that season? Florida and Oklahoma. If OSU is indeed destined for its eighth national title this year, it won’t be determined by Pryor’s numbers or “style points.” It will be because they didn’t shoot themselves in the foot going for the curvaceous blonde with no brains.
Apple posted a support article earlier today which aimed to help users avoid the Mac Defender Trojan, or remove it if already present on a system. Beyond that, the posting stated that a system update was in the works which would automatically remove the Trojan and prompt users if they happened to download the malware at some point in the future. Some wondered how well this fix would work, since cybercriminals release iterations of their malware almost as fast as Google iterates Chrome.Intego has now discovered that Mac Defender has already evolved into a more intelligent attacker. A new variant, called MacGuard, has started making the rounds, and unlike its predecessors it does not require a password to be entered to install its malicious payload. On single-user Macs, the avRunner downloader can simply pop itself into the Applications folder and phone home for its payload.Bypassing the password prompt is a significant advance, since that prompt is a bit like the hinged, acrylic box covering the big red button. While an unwary user might happily launch and click through an installer, the password dialog is usually a bit more foreboding. Eliminating the opportunity to back out before the code has been entered makes it all the more likely that MacGuard will successfully manipulate users into completing the install.For now, the bottom line is to scrutinize any web pages you wind up on which appear to be impersonating Finder and screaming at you about being infected. If you see something like the image below, it’s guaranteed to be a hoax and you should close your browser tab or window immediately.More at Intego
Découvrez la première image du nouveau télescope de l’ESOEntré en service récemment, le télescope VST, dernier né de l’Observatoire européen austral (ESO), a réalisé ses premiers clichés du ciel austral mercredi.Désigné par l’ESO comme le plus grand télescope au monde pour permettre l’observation du ciel, le VST, baptisé de ce nom pour VLT Survey Telescope, est le nouveau venu à l’Observatoire européen austral (ESO). Cet instrument est composé d’un immense miroir de 2,60 mètres de diamètre et d’un gigantesque objectif d’une résolution de 268 mégapixels. Deux composantes qui font de lui un appareil unique en son genre, capable de cartographier de larges zones du ciel, qui équivalent au double de la largeur d’une pleine lune, avec une longue profondeur de champ. Les clichés sont d’une rare netteté, réalisés en plus dans des temps très courts. À lire aussiGoogle Chrome, l’ESA et une vache marine, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 8 juilletConfectionné par l’ESO, cet appareil vient compléter et enrichir les travaux déjà réalisés par un autre télescope, le VLT. En effet, le VST pourra prendre des images grand angle du ciel austral, ce que ne peut pas faire le VLT. Des clichés qu’utilisera ensuite le VLT pour explorer plus en détails les nouvelles zones du ciel dont il n’avait pas pu prendre connaissance auparavant. Par ailleurs, le VST vient de dévoiler ses premiers clichés. Et c’est la région de formation d’étoiles Messier 17, plus communément appelée nébuleuse Omega ou nébuleuse du Cygne, qui a été photographiée. Située au coeur de la Voie Lactée, au niveau de la constellation du Sagittaire, elle offre de somptueuses images dont celle qui illustre cette article.Le 9 juin 2011 à 12:49 • Emmanuel Perrin
Les éditeurs français mettent fin à leur boycott du kiosque AppleLes éditeurs de journaux et magazines français ont mis fin à leur boycott du kiosque d’Apple, le Newsstand. Après quatre mois de protestation contre les conditions imposées par la firme à la pomme, ils ont décidé de renoncer lors d’un conseil d’administration du Syndicat de la Presse Magazine (SPM). Le boycott du kiosque d’Apple a pris fin. Les éditeurs de presse français ont décidé de renoncer à ce mouvement décidé par quatre syndicats professionnels au moment du lancement du Newsstand sur iPad en octobre dernier, rapporte Les Echos. Seuls trois titres, France Soir, La Tribune, et Le Point étaient jusqu’alors disponibles sur le kiosque à journaux numérique du géant de Cupertino.À lire aussiiPhone 6 : un smartphone fragile qui se plierait en restant dans une poche ?Les éditeurs de journaux et magazines entendaient ainsi faire pression pour Apple dont ils refusent les conditions. Ils déplorent notamment de ne pas avoir accès automatiquement aux données de leurs abonnés, mais aussi les prix de vente imposés par la firme à la pomme et la commission sur les ventes de 30% qu’elle s’octroie. Mais Apple n’a pas cédé.Lors d’un conseil d’administration du Syndicat de la Presse Magazine (SPM) la semaine dernière, ils ont donc décidé de mettre fin à leur boycott, désireux malgré tout de profiter de l’impact très positif du Newsstand sur les ventes numériques de la presse. Le Point, disponible depuis le mois de janvier sur le kiosque, a ainsi enregistré un bond de ses ventes hebdomadaires, qui ont augmenté de 1.000 exemplaires en deux semaines seulement. Dans les jours à venir, plusieurs titres devraient alors suivre l’exemple du magazine. D’après Les Echos, Mondadori proposera très prochainement Auto Plus sur le Newsstand, puis cinq magazines au mois de mars comme Grazia et Biba. Le groupe Lagardère Active devrait lui aussi lancer plusieurs titres dans les semaines à venir. Le 14 février 2012 à 18:20 • Maxime Lambert

[Representational image]Creative commonsSajid Ajmuddin Pathan, an auto driver, was rushed to a hospital after biting into a burger with glass pieces in Pune. He had vomited blood and had to undergo emergency surgery at Sahyadri hospital.The incident happened on May 15 at a Burger King outlet at Fergusson College Road in Pune.Pathan recalled that he had lost a game to his friends and had to treat them with burgers. He then took them to the Burger King outlet and bought burgers, french fries and soft drinks. When Pathan was eating his burger, he felt a sharp pain in his throat and started to spit blood. He tried wiping his mouth but the bleeding did not stop, reports The Times of India.When Pathan and his friends checked the burger, they found glass pieces. “We checked the burger in front of the outlet officials and found that there were several pieces of glass in it,” Pathan told TOI. “My friends rushed me to a hospital on the FC Road and then I was shifted to another hospital on Karve Road. I was admitted there for two days,” he added.His friends first rushed him to a hospital close by and they took him to Sahyadri hospital. There, they had to shell out Rs 15,000 for Pathan’s treatment and were told to bring Pathan the next day too. Pathan’s friends took him to the hospital the next day, this time paid Rs 30,000 for treatment. The doctors told them that the glass pieces would come out naturally through Pathan’s bowel movement.The Deccan Gymkhana police have booked the outlet under section 337 (causing hurt by act and endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code.
