Real Madrids preseason struggles continue with loss to Tottenham

Posted on by

first_imgMunich: Real Madrid’s disastrous pre-season continued as they lost 1-0 to Tottenham in Munich. “Our defeat was well deserved,” Real midfielder Tony Kroos told German TV after the match on Tuesday. It’s true that we’re not quite in good shape.” In the second match of the evening, Bayern Munich thrashed Fenerbahce 6-1. Champions League runners up Tottenham will play Bayern in Wednesday’s final. Real will have a chance to find winning form run against a Turkish side that finished their game against the host in disarray. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFor Spurs, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game with a deft finish after pouncing on a disastrous pass by Marcello, who was trying to prevent a throw in, after 22 minutes. Humiliated 7-3 last week by Atletico Madrid, Real could thank goalkeeper Keylor Navas, starting in place of injured Thibaut Courtois, for preventing a heavier against an enterprising and more aggressive Spurs team. Madrid survived some goalmouth scares in the first half. After the break, Dele Alli went close twice and 17-year-old Troy Parrott hit the inside of the post. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterZinedine Zidane’s team have conceded 13 goals and lost three of their four warm-up games. “We started off very badly, the opponent took advantage of our mistakes,” said Kroos. With Gareth Bale, the source of turmoil in recent weeks, left out of the squad for the trip to Munich and James Rodriguez yet to start after returning from Bayern, Real rarely threatened. Star summer recruit Eden Hazard was invisible. Both teams will be in action again tomorrow. Tottenham play the winner of the Tuesday’s second match, between Bayern and Fenerbahce. Real will have the opportunity to make amends tomorrow against the loser. Zidane’s men then travel to Austria to face Salzburg on August 6, then to Italy for a match against AS Rome, the last friendly before the starting the Spanish league away to Celta Vigo on August 17. In the late game, Bayern scored five in the first half with two goals from Thomas Muller and one each from Renato Sanches, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman. “We played well from the beginning,” said Mueller who completed his hat-trick in the second half. “Fenerbahce made mistakes with our pressing. When you come into the dressing room at half-time five goals ahead, you necessarily feel good.” Fenerbahce’s German international attacker Max Kruse scored a late consolation goal.last_img read more

Laurentian Bank increases quarterly dividend despite missing analyst forecasts AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 11, 2013 9:58 am MDT MONTREAL – Laurentian Bank is increasing its quarterly dividend after posting record adjusted earnings in 2013 but lower fourth-quarter profits that missed analyst expectations.The Quebec-based bank said its payout will increase one cent to 51 cents per share,to shareholders of record as of Jan. 2, effective Feb. 1Excluding one-time items, its profits reached a record $156 million, up 11 per cent from the prior year. The bank earned $5.09 per share in adjusted profits, up from $4.98 per share in 2012, but short of the $5.26 forecast by analysts.Revenues grew nine per cent to $865.3 million largely due to its acquisition of AGF Trust.“We successfully delivered solid earnings throughout the year and reached record revenues and adjusted net earnings as we leveraged our acquisitions to expand the bank’s geographic reach and client base in an environment of slowing consumer loan demand and compressed margins,” stated president and CEO Rejean Robitaille.Overall, Laurentian Bank’s (TSX:LB) net profit decreased to $124.7 million from $140.5 million a year earlier.The full-year results fell short of the $5.26 per share adjusted profits on $868.2 million of revenues forecast by analysts.In the fourth quarter, its net income plummeted 41 per cent to $27.2 million as it faced $6.3 million in restructuring costs. A year ago its earned $45.7 million including a $16.4 million gain from the acquisition of AGF Trust.Adjusting for one-time items, its net income dipped three per cent to $35.2 million, or $1.14 per share. That compared to $36.2 million or $1.17 per share a year earlier.Revenues for the period ended Oct. 31 were $215.5 million, up two per cent from $210.4 million a year ago.The bank was expected to report $1.31 per share in adjusted earnings in the quarter on $220.5 million of revenues, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.Michael Goldberg of Desjardins Capital Markets said the results were negative and the dividend increase half of what was expected.“Overall, watch for a negative reaction to Laurentian’s fourth-quarter results,” he wrote in a report.The bank says its targeted adjusted earnings is unchanged in 2014 at $145 million to $165 million. The mid-point of $144 million is 2.8 per cent above the level reported this year.Laurentian Bank’s provision for loan losses increased 25 per cent to $10 million in the quarter, largely as a result of higher provisions for personal loans. For the full year, the provisions increased nine per cent to $36 million reflecting AGF Trust’s personal loan and residential mortgage loan portfolios.Net interest income decreased by $1 million to $141.4 million in the quarter reflecting a reduced level of higher margin personal loans, partially offset by slightly improved margins.Other income increased nine per cent to $74.1 million from $68 million a year due to most revenue streams.During the past year, Laurentian Bank’s workforce decreased five per cent to nearly 4,000 while it cut the number of branches to 153.Founded in 1846, Laurentian is Canada’s seventh-largest bank with $37 billion in assets under administration.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, its shares lost $1.05 or 2.23 per cent at $46.12 in Wednesday morning trading. read more

A former mayor has called for his hometown to be flattened by a “thermonuclear device” because it has become so rundown.Councillor Dennis Keogh said parts of Port Talbot, South Wales, had become “a ghetto” after a boom in rental properties being used by drug addicts.He told a council meeting the suburb of Aberavon had become a hotspot for trouble and people who “don’t give a damn”.Labour councillor Mr Keogh, who was mayor of Neath Port Talbot until May this year, said: “It’s turning into a ghetto. The only way to sort it out is to use a small thermonuclear device to flatten it and start it again.”I’m Aberavon-born and I still have family living there – it was a beautiful place to live but I wouldn’t want to live there now.”All the trouble is in one place.”It all centres around rented accommodation – people don’t give a damn.”Mr Keogh made his comments during a planning meeting while discussing proposals to transform a home in Aberavon, Port Talbot, into flats.Plaid Cymru Councillor Nigel Hunt joined the Mr Keogh in calling for the plans to be rejected saying the area was prime ground for County Lines drugs gangs. He said: “There are real concerns about the proliferation of new, unsavoury people that are residing in Aberavon and the surge in violence and disorder.”Young children can already identify a junkie with hard drugs being an everyday sight for residents.”Alarm bells are ringing on county lines – it’s a ticking time bomb for Aberavon which, with the bus station 200 metres away and HMOs, is fertile land for them.”But the plans for the building were approved by the council. read more

Elle définissait la durée de validité des conventions d’occupation du domaine public jusqu’à fin septembre dernier. Depuis, aucun accord n’a été trouvé pour renouveler les termes de la charte.Mais les opérateurs de téléphonie mobile continuent d’occuper les toits alors que la ville de Paris a bien averti qu’elle ne donnerait pas de nouvelle autorisation d’occupation du domaine public. “Sans droit ni titre”, ce sont les mots utilisés pour qualifier cette occupation non-autorisée par les associations Priartem et Agir pour l’environnement qui ont aujourd’hui décidé de dénoncer les opérateurs qui n’en font qu’à leurs têtes.Aujourd’hui, la Mairie de Paris compte bien maintenir son refus de toute nouvelle installation et se faire entendre auprès des opérateurs en questions afin qu’ils démontent leurs 186 antennes-relais dans les plus brefs délais. Face à cette stratégie de refus, ce dialogue de sourds et une rupture des négociations, le Conseil de Paris a annoncé mercredi, la reprise de ces dernières afin d’aboutir à un accord entre la ville et les opérateurs.Le 17 décembre 2011 à 11:34 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

No Internet in Russia Swara Bhasker trolled for late tweet on Twinkle

Posted on by

first_imgSwara Bhaskar on vacation in Russia.TwitterBollywood actress Swara Bhasker has been heavily trolled for her late reaction to the Twinkle Sharma murder case that has rocked the nation for the past few days. The reason for Swara Bhasker’s late tweet on the Twinkle Sharma murder case is that she was holidaying in Russia with family when the incident came to light.But netizens will have none of it and trolled her asking if there was no Internet in Russia when the actress was vacationing there. Swara Bhasker was regularly posting pictures from her vacation on social media, so why not tweet about the case? If she was aware of what’s happening back in India, that is. She even put up a new profile picture on Twitter on June 6.After coming back to India on June 11, Swara Bhasker tweeted, “Just back Frm #Russia after a break. Including social media break! Aligarh news truly horrifying- brutal murder of 2yr old #TwinkleSharma, devastating! Killers must be punished, a precedent set so that such a crime NEVER repeated. My solidarity, sympathy & support to the family.”Swara Bhasker has been also retweeting articles on the rape and murder cases in the country that happened after the murder of Twinkle Sharma. She is now back and active on Twitter in her activist avatar. But her reaction to the Twinkle Sharma murder case was too late, it seems.Swara Bhasker along with her Veere Di Wedding co-stars Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan were trolled by netizens right after the Twinkle Sharma case. People asked them why they were not holding placards like they did when the brutal gang-rape and murder of 8-year-old girl Asifa occurred in Kathua. There were many Bollywood stars who posted strong reactions to the Twinkle Sharma murder.While it is not right to give a communal angle to such incidents, netizens continued to troll Swara Bhasker even after her recent tweet. One Twitter user said, “Yahan bhi acting…..?? Russia me internet kam nhi kar raha tha kya….”, while another quipped that it must be cold in Russia so she couldn’t tweet.One of the users compared her to Sunny Leone’s heartfelt tweet after the incident, while another said that Swara was happy with the 20 new sarees she’d bought – a dig at her interview before her campaigning for the Lok Sabha Elections 2019.Read some of the tweets trolling Swara Bhasker in the case.What about religion of victim and accused like last time u mentioned ?— Ashima ??

Epic Games UCreativa reach firstofits kind partnership in Central America

The demonstration of the popular video game Fortnite, led by professional team Las Valkirias, was part of the announcement, and celebration, of UCreativa’s new partnership with Epic Games. As an Epic Academic Partner, UCreativa ensures students can learn in the tech company’s Unreal Engine, helping prepare graduates for a career in the video-game industry in Costa Rica or abroad. “This agreement means a lot for our students,” said Gabriel Serrano, UCreativa’s Director of Careers in Development and Technology. “It’s the confidence that if they want to develop using Epic software, they will be receiving a quality education.” The announcement came after several years of discussion and planning between UCreativa and Epic Games. UCreativa becomes the first Central American school to partner with Epic as an Academic Partner and joins dozens of institutions worldwide — in every content except Antarctica — that use the company’s Unreal Engine to train their students. For Epic Games representative Christian Andrade, Unreal Engine Evangelist for Latin America, the alliance opens an untapped market for the company.  Gabriel Serrano speaks during a press conference with Epic Games representative Christian Andrade. Jacob Spetzler / The Tico Times“Latin America is behind in the development of video games — but not in playing them,” Andrade said. “Why is this important? Around the rest of the world, companies that develop video games have grown to where scaling more is difficult.“This is an opportunity for Latin America.” Epic has been a leader in gaming and animation technologies for nearly 30 years. Their Unreal Engine powers popular games including Fortnite, Bioshock and Gears of War, among dozens of others. “The development industry is one of the most prolific of the orange economy,” Serrano said. “That is reflected in national companies that currently develop video games, whose developments have been published in main consoles, such as PlayStation 4, and who sell services in the largest markets in the world, from the United States to Japan.” Following the announcement, Las Valkirias (The Valkyries), Costa Rica’s first all-female professional Fortnite team, showed off the capabilities of the Unreal Engine in a Team Rumble contest displayed on a massive screen. Las Valkirias, Costa Rica’s first all-female Fortnite team, in an interview on May 29, 2019. Jacob Spetzler / The Tico TimesThe event ended with Unreal Engine workshops for the public — giving everyone from curious teenagers to established developers a firsthand look at Epic Games’ software.“Video games generate more profits than movies and music combined,” Andrade said, “so we are in the right place to look toward the future.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories Top Stories Associated PressKOLKATA, India (AP) – A key ally of India’s ruling coalition withdrew its support from the government Tuesday to protest recent economic reforms, including a move to open the country’s huge retail sector.Ministers from the Trinamool Congress party will resign from India’s Cabinet on Friday, its leader Mamata Banerjee told reporters in the eastern city of Kolkata.The departure of the ally and its 19 lawmakers from the Congress party-led ruling coalition wouldn’t immediately weaken the government, which still has the support of over 300 legislators and needs 272 to stay in power. But it would leave the government vulnerable to the whims of its other allies, most of which strongly oppose the surprise move to allow foreign investment in the retail sector.center_img 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Comments   Share   Congress party spokesman Janardhan Dwivedi said it still considers Banerjee a “valuable ally,” leading to speculation that she might be cajoled into rejoining the coalition before her party’s ministers resign on Friday.Decisions by the government to open airlines to foreign capital, sell minority stakes in four state-run companies and hike diesel fuel prices have also drawn sharp criticism.Opposition parties have also criticized the reforms, which were announced last week. Some, including the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party and leftist groups, have planned a countrywide strike and protests on Thursday.“The people want a reversal of this entire set of policies that the government is trying to impose,” Brinda Karat, a lawmaker with the Communist Party India (Marxist), told New Delhi Television channel.Banerjee had initially demanded that the government reverse the reforms within 72 hours. On Tuesday she called the new retail policy a “disaster” for India’s poor.Banerjee was also one of the loudest critics of the government’s previous attempt to open the retail market to foreign companies such as Wal-Mart, which ended last year in a humiliating back-down for the ruling party.

The policy will cover up to $77.4 million of credit losses for a portion of the credit risk associated with a pool of single-family loans funded in the third quarter of 2012, and is in line with the GSE’s goal of sharing credit risk with the private market.

We’ve tapped into the global insurance community’s appetite for U.S. mortgage credit exposure, and would like to do more of these policies in the future.””This year Freddie Mac introduced new risk sharing initiatives with two STACR debt offerings and credit insurance. STACR debt notes were among the largest credit security offerings in the market.The credit risk initiatives support the “”Federal Housing Finance Agency’s””:http://www.fhfa.gov (FHFA) goals for the GSEs to demonstrate the viability of multiple types of risk transfer transactions involving single-family mortgages.””The completion of this deal is unique in that it is with a diversified non-mortgage insurer and it demonstrates yet another approach to risk sharing with investors,”” said Edward DeMarco, acting director of FHFA. “”The transaction supports FHFA’s 2013 conservatorship scorecard and FHFA’s strategic plan for the enterprise conservatorships, reducing Freddie Mac’s market footprint and ultimately protecting taxpayers.”” in Secondary Marketcenter_img November 13, 2013 432 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Edward DeMarco FHFA Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage-Backed Securities Service Providers 2013-11-13 Ashley Harrislast_img read more
