first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho said Christmas has been a tough time for him as it is the first one since the death of his father in June 2017 © AFP/File / Geoff CADDICKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 25 – Jose Mourinho aimed a Christmas Day dig at Manchester City, claiming the runaway Premier League leaders have been handed an unfair advantage by playing their next match more than a day later than his United team.United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford on Tuesday but City, who have a huge 13-point lead over their city rivals, won’t play again until Wednesday night when they travel to Newcastle. Last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Leicester was the first of four top-flight games in 10 days for United.“I’m not just saying about the privileged teams with six days to recover and to enjoy and to prepare for the next one, but also the ones with a little bit more (time) than us, for example the ones that play after tomorrow — that extra day means a lot,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.“It means probably they are not working today, it means they can be back to work tomorrow and prepare for the next day. The problem that I see here is the difference between some teams.“But what I call the December injuries in English football are arriving. Some players are leaving the pitch after 15-20 minutes, some others don’t resist for the 90.“Of course it depends on many factors, but we open the door for what I call the December injuries.”Mourinho also admitted that Christmas had been a tough time for him as it was the first one since the death of his father, former Portugal goalkeeper Jose Manuel Mourinho Felix, in June.“It’s the first Christmas without my father and I think that’s the most difficult one,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgTESCO Ireland has hit back at claims that it is responsible for the loss of 100 jobs – half of them in Co Donegal.Muff-based Rock Shopfitting Services was employed by the global supermarket giant in its stores here.MD Martin McCafferty claimed yesterday that his company had lost out to larger companies – even though he believes his prices were up to a third cheaper. Angry workers have set up a Facebook page denouncing Tesco over the move to award the contracts elsewhere, with a French company picking up most of the business.But in a statement a Tesco Ireland spokesman said the Co Donegal company had simply lost out in the tendering process.And the supermarket also said it would welcome tenders for further work by the Donegal company in the future.“We are aware of Rock Services concerns, but we are satisfied that they are being dealt with fairly and transparently,” said a Tesco Ireland spokesperson. “We have a very competitive but clear tender process and we continue to invite them to tender for work.“The tender for the most recent contract was won by two Irish entities.” TESCO HITS BACK: IT’S NOT OUR FAULT 50 DONEGAL JOBS ARE BEING AXED was last modified: August 28th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal daily newsDonegal job lossestescolast_img read more

first_imgUnicorns exist – in the north sea.  Not horses, these are marine mammals, called narwhals, a kind of whale that sports a unique spiraling tooth that gives them the appearance of a unicorn.  Scientists have puzzled for centuries over what these tusks are for.  Leading theories were that males used them for joisting to defend territory, or they were artifacts of sexual selection.  Now, scientists from Harvard School of Dental Medicine under Martin Nweeia think they have solved the mystery.  The tusk is lined with ten million tiny nerve connections that give this unusual tooth an extremely sensitive probe into the temperature, salinity and pressure of the icy water in which they live.  With the proteinaceous membrane on the outer surface connected to the nerves inside, it acts as an antenna of sorts, guiding the animals to their prey in the deep water or sensing the environment at the surface.    The tooth on males can be up to nine feet long, yet is resistant to breakage.  It grows in a spiral pattern straight out without curving, as with elephant tusks.  No other mammal has a tooth anything like it; the press release states, “there is no comparison in nature and certainly none more unique in tooth form, expression, and functional adaptation.”  Tooth scientists are interested in learning how the narwhal tooth remains both strong and flexible (it can bend a foot without breaking), for possible applications in restorative dental materials.  See also the reports on LiveScience, National Geographic News, and Science Daily.  Narwhals have also been seeing rubbing one another’s tusks for perhaps some pleasurable or social purpose humans cannot imagine.No missing links.  Functionally useful.  Optimally designed.  The truth about the tooth required discounting evolutionary stories and going into the Arctic to study these animals and their structures up close, to determine their design.  Chalk up another study that assumed there was a purpose beyond the just-so stories, and did good scientific work to uncover it.  Now we can all be amazed a little more.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img20 March 2014 South African Davis Cup tennis captain John-Laffnie de Jager has been appointed president of the Global Professional Tennis Coaches Association (GPTCA). The organisation, which is affiliated to the ATP World Tour, is dedicated to improving the performance of tennis coaches to enable them to help aspiring pro players and take world-class tennis to an even a higher level. ‘A career highlight’ “To be chosen by such peers as their president is indeed a career highlight and something of which I am extremely proud,” De Jager told the South African Press Association (Sapa) on Tuesday. He is the first South African to be elected GPTCA president. “De Jager’s vast knowledge of tennis at a professional and grass-roots level, his experience as a Davis Cup captain and ability as a past player of note were all products of his passion and dedication to the game,” the GPTCA said in a statement. “His admirable and enthusiastic attitude regarding all aspects of tennis are recognised by colleagues and players alike. “The main goal of the GPTCA is to expose coaches and players to developments of the game at the highest level – and, with this in mind, De Jager has been in the forefront.”Coaching roles Apart from being South Africa’s Davis Cup captain, De Jager coaches two of the world’s leading doubles teams, Poland’s Marcin Matkowski and Mariusz Fyrstenburg and the Dutch-Romanian pair of Julien Rojer and Horia Tecan. He also coaches the Springfield Lasers in the United States’ World Team Tennis event. In 2013, he helped them reach the final of the competition.Career De Jager excelled as a doubles player on the ATP World Tour, reaching a career high ranking of number 11. In mixed doubles, he contested the 1995 French Open and the 1997 Australian Open finals. In total, he won seven career doubles titles and finished as a runner-up 12 times. In the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, De Jager and his partner David Adams made it to the semi-finals where they lost to the Canadian pair of Sebastien Lareau and Daniel Nestor, whom they had beaten earlier in the competition. In the end the South African pair narrowly missed out on a medal, losing to Alex Corretja and Albert Costa of Spain in three sets in the playoff for the bronze medal.last_img read more
