first_imgWolves boss Nuno left frustrated after Southampton drawby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves boss Nuno was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Southampton.The visitors went ahead in sloppy circumstances from a Wolves perspective, as Danny Ings capitalised to slot home. Wolves showed the spirit to come back and equalise through Raul Jimenez’s penalty, and Nuno wants his team to learn from their performance and build on an improved second-half.He said, “I’m disappointed because one of the things we are, and must be, is solid and today we were not. Sometimes you have to stay in the game, Southampton broke us when we should be more solid in defence.“We created but not in the right areas we should. We played long, Southampton did very well, they pressed us very well, they were organised and are a very good team, they did a good job to make our task very hard in terms of possession of the ball.”He continued, “Sometimes it’s not what you want to do, it’s what the other team lets you do, but we should find better solutions. In the second-half we played better, we were more stable.“The goal we suffered was a mistake, we had to react, and we reacted OK, and then we pushed until the end.“It was not an easy game, it was a very tough game. It was very disrupted, not both teams controlling the game, we had an injury and didn’t play the way we should and could.“The game was very hard, we made mistakes, a lot of things happened in the game, so we have to improve for the next one.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government sent a doctor to Cuba to examine Canadian diplomats who suffered everything from nosebleeds to short-term memory loss amid concern about mysterious acoustic attacks, newly declassified memos show.The June visit to Havana by Dr. Jeffrey Chernin of Health Canada revealed symptoms similar to those experienced by U.S. personnel in Cuba, the internal Global Affairs Canada notes say.Word of the perplexing phenomenon — which remains unexplained — emerged during the summer, prompting the United States to bring many diplomats home from Havana and to expel Cuban representatives from Washington.In August, Ottawa acknowledged that an unspecified number of Canadians in Cuba had been affected, but Global Affairs has said little about the events.The newly disclosed records, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, show that as early as May, Canada’s mission in Havana was seeking help in working out “next steps” for Canadian staff having problems.“Many of the symptoms are similar to signs of extreme stress, and there is the possibility that there could be mental health effects caused by the fear of being targeted,” wrote diplomat Karen Foss. “Either way, testing should help to rule out cases and reassure personnel that we have the means to be able to provide duty of care.”Symptoms included headaches, dizziness, nausea, hearing loss, nosebleeds and cognitive issues including loss of short-term memory.But Canadian officials were puzzled about who or what might have been behind the purported attacks.“There are no answers,” Foss wrote in a May 28 email. “We are left to (sift through) what we know about … the targets and possible suspects.”About a week later, Foss advised that the head of Canada’s mission in Cuba had called a meeting of staff to advise of the “increased threat level.”A security situation overview noted a need to review who in the mission “is most vulnerable because of any pre-existing condition or other consideration that means they are at greater risk if they are targeted.”Canadian officials quietly began drafting statements in case the “situation is leaked to the press” — noting there were hints the issue was being discussed at a Virginia school.By June 9, the mission was underscoring the need for help from a federal medical adviser and stressing that new diplomatic personnel bound for Cuba should be made aware as soon as possible of the strange ailments affecting staff.Local guards were asked to increase their patrols around the residential properties of Canadian staff and to be extra vigilant in reporting.Dr. Chernin arrived in Havana on June 18 to meet concerned staff individually and take part in a townhall-style meeting a few days later. The doctor found that symptoms, experience and recovery varied, but he seemed to rule out viral causes such as the flu or hearing loss due to age.Privy Council Office and Global Affairs Canada officials held a subsequent meeting with Cuban counterparts to encourage “closer collaboration” on fact-finding, explore the possibility of greater security in areas where Canadian diplomats were living “to discourage further attacks” and express Canada’s ongoing commitment to good relations.All Canadian personnel experiencing symptoms have undergone testing in Canada or the U.S., Global Affairs spokeswoman Sujata Raisinghani said Thursday.However, she declined to say how many diplomats and family members have been affected.“The government of Canada continues to work closely with Cuban authorities to ascertain the cause of these unusual symptoms.”— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi Police has arrested a man who sexually assaulted a divorcee after luring her with the false promise of marriage, said an officer on Friday. The incident was reported from Netaji Subhash Place in the national capital where a seven-month pregnant victim filed a complaint with the police on Wednesday. “The woman, 27, and a mother of two, in her complaint alleged that she was first time raped by the accused in June 2018. He raped her on the pretext of marrying her. But when he refused to fulfil his promise, the victim registered a complaint, following which he was arrested,” a senior police officer said. “During the court hearing, the accused had apologised to the victim, and with mutual consent they had agreed to tie the knot. Following this, the court had granted him bail,” he said. “After he came out on bail last year, the accused used to stay with woman and developed physical relation with her again promising to marry her. This time the victim got pregnant. When she would ask the accused to marry her, he would assault her and force for abortion,” he added. The accused is at large and a hunt is on to nab him, the officer said.last_img read more

first_imgDonald TrumpUS president Donald Trump said Monday that a bomb attack by a 27-year-old from Bangladesh on New York’s subway system underscored the “urgent need” for Congress to enact immigration reform.Three people were slightly injured after the attacker’s pipe bomb exploded only partially, while the suspect was sent to a hospital with apparently severe burns and wounds on his torso and hands.“First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for president, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country,” Trump said in a statement.He added that the suspect, identified as Akayed Ullah, had entered the country through “extended-family chain migration,” a system the president is seeking to end that allows families to sponsor relatives to come to the United States.He also cited his controversial travel ban on the entry of nationals from eight countries-six of which have Muslim majorities-as “one step forward in securing our immigration system.”Other measures Trump said he hoped Congress would pass included “increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system.”Trump also reiterated his call for terror convicts to receive “the strongest penalty allowed by law, including the death penalty.”He had previously called for the death penalty for Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan who killed eight people and injured 12 in an 31 October truck attack in New York.last_img read more
