Kieran Tierney is ‘coping well’ with the Arsenal rumours, says Celtic team-mate James Forrest (Picture: Getty)Celtic star James Forrest has claimed that Kieran Tierney is ‘coping well’ and just ‘working hard’ to get himself back to full fitness amid speculation linking the left-back with Arsenal.Unai Emery made Tierney his number one left-back target at the start of the summer, but Arsenal were unsuccessful with their two opening bids for the 22-year-old.However, Arsenal are said to be confident of agreeing a deal for Tierney after restructuring their second offer of £25million for the Scotland international.Tierney, though, has been recovering from a double hernia operation and Celtic boss Neil Lennon insists the full-back is ‘still injured’ which could be a stumbling block in any potential agreement between the clubs.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityOn the rumours surrounding Tierney, Celtic winger Forrest said: ‘Ask anyone in our dressing room, we all want KT to still be here.‘He’s been a great player for us and everyone is hoping that come Friday he is still here.‘We want him to get back playing for us.

Maritime Blockchain Labs (MBL), founded by BLOC and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation (LRF), has established a consortium to explore the use of blockchain in tackling the significant risks and challenges associated with the declaration and handling of dangerous goods.The consortium would explore the use of digital tools for traceability of dangerous goods cargo, and immutable attestations and digital audit trails for due diligence with a view to generating more transparency and accountability in tracking dangerous goods; ultimately, reducing incidents.According to the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS), nearly 25% of all serious incidents onboard containerships were attributable to misdeclared cargo.The MBL consortium would build and test a prototype to assess the potential for distributed ledger technology (DLT) to address the challenges faced by stakeholders throughout the supply chain.Funded by LRF and conducted in partnership with Rainmaking, the consortium includes Copenhagen Malmö Ports (CMP), Flexport, X-Press Feeders, SecureSystem, DSV, Port+, Agility and MTI. It represents stakeholders throughout the value chain, from ports, to carriers, to technology and service providers.“The global economy is a highly interconnected machine, and with container ships transporting more than 90% of non-bulk cargo worldwide, this machine only operates efficiently when the shipping and logistics components operate efficiently,” Deanna MacDonald, CEO and Founder of BLOC, said.While the exact breakdown of cargo contents varies by container, between 5-10% of an average container ship’s cargo is declared as hazardous goods and around 12% of global container trade comprises dangerous goods. However, it is nearly impossible to know how much dangerous cargo is undeclared or misdeclared.The parties said that the demonstrator project will run until September, 2019.

Indianapolis, IN—The Dearborn County Retired Teachers Foundation, Inc. was one of nearly 100 of Indiana’s public school education foundation leaders attending the 22nd Annual Indiana Association of Public Education Foundations (INAPEF) Conference in Indianapolis September 11.Attendees heard presentations covering a variety of topics designed to improve education foundations’ fundraising capabilities, governance, operations, and community collaborations.Indiana’s public education foundations provide opportunities for donors to give back to their schools by funding teacher and classroom grants, student scholarships, and district-wide initiatives. Education foundations play an important role in Indiana communities, connecting private citizens with public education and providing resources to classrooms that otherwise would not be possible.Statewide, INAPEF member education foundations raised more than $16 million during the past year to invest back in their districts, teachers, classrooms, and students. Locally the retired teachers and their very generous business sponsors gave active teachers and their classrooms over $7000 to use for their classroom for materials not provided for in the school budget. Innovative and creative teaching strategies are encouraged.Betty Bourquein, Director of the Dearborn County Retired Teachers Foundation, shared in a presentation with Justin Hirnisey, Director of Hamilton Southeast Schools Foundation, on the topic of “Finding and Utilizing Your Volunteers.”
Mark Hughes has said that his “affinity” with Southampton is the reason he agreed to take charge of the Premier League strugglers until the end of the season.The former Stoke boss replaces Mauricio Pellegrino, who was sacked on Monday with the club one point above the relegation zone after one win in 17.“The objective is to make sure we’re a Premier League club next year,” Hughes said. “That’s where we should be.” Hughes was sacked by Stoke in January, with the club in the bottom three.The Welshman, 54, had been with Stoke for four and a half years and has taken charge of 445 Premier League matches for the Potters, Blackburn, Manchester City, Fulham, QPR.He started his managerial career with five years in charge of his country.Hughes spent two years at Southampton from 1998 to 2000 in a 22-year playing career that also included spells at Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona.“It’s a challenge I’m excited by. It’s a great opportunity to come back to a club I know well, and a club I’ve got real affinity with, and I couldn’t turn that down,” Hughes said.“I understand what it takes in this league to win games. But it’s about coming in and being that different voice that will enable the players to recognise and focus on what needs to be done.”Hughes’ first game will be Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against League One side Wigan.Southampton was beaten 3-0 by Newcastle on Saturday and the next league game is away to fellow strugglers West Ham on March 31.Hughes is the club’s fifth permanent manager in the five years since Mauricio Pochettino, now Spurs manager, replaced Nigel Adkins.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Published on October 15, 2014 at 12:05 am Contact Liam: email@example.com Facebook Twitter Google+ No one on the team is shorter than Stephanie Grossi. But four games into the season, her Syracuse teammates are looking up to her — at least in a statistical sense.Listed as 5 feet, 2 inches on the Orange’s roster, Grossi, a freshman, hasn’t let her size stop her from having an immediate effect.“Size does not affect her at all,” head coach Paul Flanagan said. “She’s got good skills and she just keeps the game simple. She possesses the skills and abilities you really can’t teach.”Grossi’s talents have her on pace for what could be a breakout first campaign, as she already leads Syracuse (1-1-2) with 22 shots and a team-high two goals on the season. Grossi is trying to keep adjusting to the collegiate game and improving as the Orange advances through its schedule.“I don’t think I’ve been doing anything special,” Grossi said. “I’m just doing what I know how to do. I skate, find holes in the defense, play solid hockey. It’s nothing hard. I’ve just been lucky.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFlanagan added that Grossi’s goal total should be at three, not two. He said a “horrible call” by an official took away a goal in the team’s 2-1 win in the season opener against Colgate.The head coach said he expects her to contribute offensively this season and the team is going to need her to do so to be successful. The fact that Grossi has emerged as one of the team’s top offensive threats so far bodes well for the team, Flanagan said.The strong start puts the freshman on pace for 17 goals on the season, which was the team-high last year.Junior forward Melissa Piacentini, who led the team in goals scored last year, believes Grossi is doing everything she can to get better.Grossi has been working on little things outside of practice and that has made the difference so far, Piacentini said. She’s working hard in the weight room and stays after practice to do drills focused on working to improve her handling and touch.Grossi hasn’t just been a contributor by putting the puck in the back of the net, but she’s been able to create for her teammates as well. She has one assist on the season so far, which puts her in a 10-way tie for the team high.“Everyone coming to this level has some sort of adjustment period,” Piacentini said. “Steph’s hasn’t really been a thing.”Flanagan praised her reactionary decision making skills as being very solid, something that is crucial in a sport as quick and action packed as hockey.She also described Grossi’s style of play as being smart and instinctive, which was something she was able to develop before coming to Syracuse.Grossi played at Shaftesbury Prep in Canada and holds the record for the most points, 158, and assists, 84, in program history — and her success in high school has, so far, translated directly into the college game.But she’s not satisfied with her performance and thinks she needs to keep improving. Although she has had success, she said she wants to work on her handling of the puck under pressure and being able to finish more of her opportunities.While there is room for improvement, Grossi’s teammates are appreciative of the offensive lift they’ve gotten from her and her ability to score and create chances is not being swept under the rug.“Stephanie’s really been a huge asset this year,” said Piacentini. “She’s done everything right so far and she’s going to be really successful here if she continues to work at it.” Comments
