first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho watches as Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian passes the ball during the match against Stoke City in Stoke-on-Trent © AFP / Geoff CADDICKSTOKE-ON-TRENT, United Kingdom, Sep 10 – Jose Mourinho claimed his confidence in his Manchester United side remains intact despite seeing Stoke City end their perfect start to the Premier League season with a 2-2 draw.Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored twice for the Potters, becoming the first player to score against United in four games this season and making Stoke the first side to deny them maximum points. Mourinho saw poor defending for both of the Cameroon international’s goals cost his side a fourth successive victory at the start of the season, but he declared himself pleased with United’s position on top of the table, ahead of Manchester City on goal difference.“It’s easy to feel it that some of the players were not with the sharpness and intensity and with the decision-making,” he said.“I know after national teams there are no miracles or injuries or fatigue or lack of concentration and we had a little bit of everything.“So I’m not disappointed with the players, I’m not critical with it, it’s just a natural consequence.“Four matches, 10 points, top of the league, we are okay. We know that with the teams in the league is a difficult match and every point is a point you have to fight hard for so I’m exactly the same mentality and mood that I had after three matches and nine points, 10-0 in goals.“A draw was a fair result. One team wanted to win, another team wanted to draw, but the team that wanted to draw fought hard for that.“They defended a lot and it’s becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending.“But they did well and the team were physically very strong and they probably deserved the point.“We tried to win in the last 20 minutes, that was clear, but we couldn’t and we can say we could score more goals and win, yes, but we could also not concede that second goal, which was really a bad goal to concede.“But it’s a point and probably Stoke City deserved the point.”– Touchline spat –Mourinho refused to criticise Phil Jones for giving Choupo-Moting a free header for Stoke’s equaliser, and played down a spat with opposite number Mark Hughes.Former United striker Hughes pushed Mourinho during the game when he entered the Stoke technical area and Mourinho refused to shake his opposite number’s hand at the final whistle.“I prefer not to answer question about handshakes,” Mourinho told the BBC. “It’s a bad question. It makes it look like it’s my fault but that’s not right.”“I pushed him because he was in my technical area,” Hughes admitted. “Maybe that’s why he didn’t want to shake my hand.“Maybe it’s because it could be viewed as a negative result for him.“Coming to Stoke City when everybody expected them to beat us is a negative.“Sometimes managers of the top-six clubs don’t take negative results too kindly and maybe he reacted the wrong way.“The performance today was better than the performance against Arsenal when we won and I think that tells you how well we played and how Manchester United will test teams.“I think they were excellent and we needed to step up to the challenge.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

She was completely emaciated.”The charity has issued a plea to parents NOT to even think of purchasing pets as Christmas presents when so many rescue animals need good homes.They are also desperately seeking donations to care for this husky and the many cats and dogs rescued in recent days.Every cent donated to Animals in Need goes directly to helping the animals in our care,at the moment we have a lot of sick animals and our vet bills and food bills are enormous. You can donate through paypal or (€2) by texting KITTEN to 50300.(100% of text cost goes to ANIMALS IN NEED DONEGAL across most network providers.

first_imgScience says… on second thought, science says the opposite.  Or, we’re not sure what science says.  The following recent stories show that things you thought science had proven may not be true at all.  What’s next?Take testosterone for fairness:  The image of the testosterone-crazed, egotistical, reckless, raging road warrior is all wrong.  At least, that’s British and Swiss researchers found with a controlled experiment on 120 subjects that showed people given testosterone pills were more likely to make fair-minded judgments than those with a placebo – unless they knew they took the testosterone.    The headlines tell all: “Testosterone does not induce aggression, study shows,” from Science Daily and PhysOrg; “Women on testosterone only think they’re macho,” from New Scientist, which added, “Long blamed for aggression, promiscuity and even greed, some of testosterone’s alleged effects may be all in the mind.”  One of the researchers explained the reason for the experiment: “we were interested in the question: what is truth, and what is myth?”Germs do a body good:  Here’s a headline to raise eyebrows from Live Science: “Germs may be good for you.”  Those raised on the image of nasty germs may be surprised at what science is saying now: “Exposing kids to nasty germs might actually toughen them up to diseases as grown-ups, mounting research suggests.”Survival of the… what?:  Oh my goodness, what would Charles Darwin say about this headline from Science Daily and PhysOrg: “Social Scientists Build Case for ‘Survival of the Kindest’.”  Was all that talk about Malthus and nature red in tooth and claw for nothing?  “Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, are challenging long-held beliefs that human beings are wired to be selfish,” the article begins.  “In a wide range of studies, social scientists are amassing a growing body of evidence to show we are evolving to become more compassionate and collaborative in our quest to survive and thrive.”  If only Hitler and Stalin had known.    The authors attempted to give Darwin a reprieve by quoting him as the father of compassion theory: “This new science of altruism and the physiological underpinnings of compassion is finally catching up with Darwin’s observations nearly 130 years ago, that sympathy is our strongest instinct.”  There’s a research project for someone: what did Darwin mean, in context, and in the larger context of his view of how evolution operates?We were going to share the story about the Professor who is receiving messages from space, but that’s just a teaser line on PhysOrg about ground-space communications with the International Space Station.If scientists cannot be sure about things that are testable right in the lab, how can they possibly be so cocky about things that supposedly happened millions of years ago?  Nice sentiment: “what is truth, and what is myth?”(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more


first_imgThe nationwide movement that is inspiring and empowering all South Africans into active citizenship, received another boost today.        Brand South Africa, under the #PlayYourPart programme, in partnership with IQbusiness, launched the #FlyYourFlag initiative at the IQbusiness annual Growth Conference on Tuesday, 9 October 2018 which was attended by 300 business, government and civil leaders.“We are extremely proud to be part of the #FlyYourFlag initiative that IQbusiness has proposed.

As proud South Africans, we need to recapture the spirit and pride of our rainbow nation and #FlyYourFlag” says Thembi Kunene-Msimang, CEO of Brand South Africa.The IQbusiness Growth Conference features exceptional thought leaders who provide practical advice on how to drive collective responsibility and participation in our country’s future.In his closing address, Adam Craker – the IQbusiness CEO – challenged all companies to reignite their South African pride by committing to flying a South African flag outside of all their branches, offices and other premises.        “We are challenging business, government and civil society to show their commitment to the future of this country by proudly flying a South African flag. If we are serious about changing the direction of the country, we must look as much at ourselves as our new leadership,” says IQbusiness CEO, Adam Craker.Brand South Africa and IQbusiness will be the driving force behind #FlyYourFlag to address some of the challenges the country is facing:1. Job creation: The South African flags, flag poles and installation will be manufactured locally as part of the IQbusiness Enterprise Supplier Development (ESD) Programme.2.
