Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is the kind of footballer fans want to do well. The Southampton midfielder is ambitious, works hard, and his enthusiasm for the game shines through during interviews.However, he’s not having the best time of it right now. Out of Denmark’s senior squad, Højbjerg hasn’t even been called up to the U21 side. Denmark’s U21 manager explained he wants other players, who helped in qualifying for this summer’s U21 tournament, to be given first chance to take part.Højbjerg has made 19 starts for Southampton so far in his first season, it’s not such a bad situation for the 21 year old under Claude Puel, but in Denmark it’s seen as an issue.The midfielder is thought to have stagnated and former Denmark international, and current commentator, Morten Bruun is quoted by Ekstra Bladet as saying: “Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s development has stalled. He has not moved on this season and in the national team has been overtaken by Thomas Delaney and Lasse Schøne. He has plenty of ball contact and lacks an end product.”Bruun doesn’t believe that Southampton have a plan to quickly sell the player, and nor should they.It’s all a little harsh on the youngster, Denmark may be better served in the long-term by backing him.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoTheTopFiveVPNNetflix Users In The Hong Kong, Use This To Enjoy US Netflix ShowsTheTopFiveVPNUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoSingles50Tung Chung: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually WorksSingles50UndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Athletes harassed in Spain while practicing amid confinementAthletes harassed in Spain while practicing amid confinement
Last Updated: 5th May, 2020 19:17 IST Athletes Harassed In Spain While Practicing Amid Confinement Some got jeered. Others were yelled at by people on their balconies. Many received disapproving looks. First Published: 5th May, 2020 19:17 IST COMMENT Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO US FOLLOW US WATCH US LIVE Written By LIVE TV Some got jeered. Others were yelled at by people on their balconies. Many received disapproving looks.The long-awaited return to practice amid the coronavirus pandemic wasn’t as pleasant as some Spanish athletes had hoped.High-performance athletes were allowed to resume training in Spain this week after nearly two months of confinement, but some reported being harassed by local residents who thought they were breaking confinement rules.The government has eased some of the lockdown measures that have been in place because of the pandemic, but restrictions on exercising still apply for most of the population, including specific time frames in which people from different age groups can go outside.Professional and high-performance athletes are an exception and can exercise at any time, though some people didn’t like seeing them out on the streets outside the permitted time slots for the rest of the population, either because they didn’t know the rules or because they didn’t recognize the athletes.“I’ve never been looked at so badly and heard so many negative comments,” Spanish sprinter Cristina Lara wrote on Twitter. “They also jeered some of my colleagues. It looks like we will have to go out with signs identifying ourselves.”Lara said she went out at about 10:30 a.m., which is a time reserved for the elderly. Children can go out with a parent from noon to 7 p.m., while others can leave their homes from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. or from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., always while staying within a kilometer (0.6 miles) from their residences.Spanish long-distance runner Carlos Mayo also went out during the time reserved for the elderly on Monday. He told Spanish radio network COPE that he was asked why he was running at that time.“Of the nearly 50 people that I crossed paths with today, the majority of them older than 65 because that’s when they could go out, five verbally called my attention, including a lady who yelled at me from her balcony,” he wrote on Twitter.Spanish marathon runner Javier Guerra said he was told by people on the streets that he was a bad example.“From what I’m seeing, I wasn’t the only one who got reprimanded while going out to practice,” he wrote on Twitter. “Being a high-performance athlete, I can practice at any time during the day, but apparently that is not enough … We understand that this is an extreme situation, but we always have to respect each other.”Other Spanish athletes who complained of harassment while practicing included steeplechase runner Irene Sánchez Escribano and long-distance runner Ignacio Fontes.Athletes always must go out carrying the proper documentation showing that they are allowed to be out, otherwise they can be subjected to fines.Soccer players from the first and second divisions are among the few athletes who can already train inside sports facilities and training centers, which have been closed since Spain entered a lockdown in mid-March to contain the spread of the virus that has already killed more than 25,000 people in the southern European nation.Some of the sports facilities and training centers are expected to reopen next week in most parts of the country as the government continues to ease some of the restrictions while the numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases decrease.Tennis player Novak Djokovic apparently broke confinement rules on Monday for going onto a tennis court in the Spanish city of Marbella. The tennis federation had said players are not yet allowed to practice on courts.
Jessica Chastain explains getting Octavia Spencer & other actresses “Equal pay for equal work”Jessica Chastain explains getting Octavia Spencer & other actresses “Equal pay for equal work”
ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — In The Help, Octavia Spencer plays a maid who helps Jessica Chastain’s character through a difficult period in her life. Off screen, it was Chastain who came to Spencer’s aid when she learned the actress, who’s African-American, was making less than other actresses in a film comedy in which Chastain and Spencer will star.Now a vocal advocate for gender pay equality, the Time’s Up initiative and #MeToo, Chastain told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview why she stood up for Spencer, who won an Oscar for The Help, in which she starred with Chastain.“This is the God’s honest truth — I care more about what Octavia’s getting paid than what I’m getting paid… Equal pay for equal work!” “I knew women of color got paid less,” Chastain continued. “What I didn’t know is someone of Octavia’s level, who had an Oscar and two Oscar nominations, how much less she would be getting paid. When she told me what she was making, [I said] ‘Hold up, that doesn’t compute in my brain.’”During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, Spencer said of Chastain, “She said, ‘You and I are going to be tied together. We’re going to be favored nations and we’re gonna make the same thing, you are going to make that amount.’ Fast-forward to last week, we’re making five times what we asked for.”For her upcoming female-fronted spy thriller, 355, which Chastain produced, the actress ensured all five starring actresses would be paid equally and get a share of the profits.“It was a system that wasn’t working,” said Chastain. “And so I thought, ‘Well, what if we now take the power and give it to the actresses?’”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

It delivered an estimated $14 million domestically, right at the low end of pre-relaese expectations.Disney’s Aladdin held on to third place in its fifth week of release, earning an estimated $12.2 million and bringing its totals stateside to just below $288 million. The film’s overseas tally now stands at $522 million, with its worldwide gross now standing at around $810 million.Disney is the parent company of Pixar and ABC News.The week’s other major release, Anna, starring Russian model/actress Sasha Luss in her first big role, alongside Luke Evans and Helen Mirren, failed to crack the top 10, delivering an estimated $3.5 million.Men in Black: International fell from first to fourth place in its second week of release, grabbing an estimated $10.75 million.

Dozens of Hurricane Harvey victims rescued from a roof in HoustonDozens of Hurricane Harvey victims rescued from a roof in Houston
Related ABC News(HOUSTON) — Dozens of people in a downtown Houston apartment building — including a Hurricane Katrina survivor and her children — were rescued from the roof of their neighbor’s two-story home on Monday, after one woman’s pleas for help highlighted the agony that many flood victims face.“It’s water everywhere and we have nowhere to go,” a desperate Iashia Nelson told “Good Morning America” on FaceTime Monday morning. “I have all my children I love. I have nothing but the clothes on my back, we just want to get out.”The children who were stranded on the rooftop, including Nelson’s son, were rescued via boat by the “Cajun Navy,” an informal volunteer group with small watercraft. After the children were picked up, the adults in the group, including Nelson, were picked up by someone in another boat.Nelson told ABC News that she is currently being transported to the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, where she will be reunited with her son.Hurricane Harvey’s historic rainfall and deadly flooding this weekend have left thousands of residents in the area stranded. Nelson told ABC News Monday morning before the rescue that it was unclear when authorities would be able to rescue them, adding that she had been calling 911 for help throughout the night.“We had to break the window to get outside on the roof because the window was real small,” she said. “We had to take the whole window pane out so everybody could fit through the window. It’s like 30 of us on the roof.”At least three people have died in the flooding that the National Weather Service has called “epic and catastrophic.”Nelson, who moved to Houston from New Orleans after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago this week, said before her family’s rescue that they had “nothing,” no food or water.Another neighbor also on that roof, Fred Clark, told ABC News on Monday morning, “We really need help.”An estimated 1,500 to 2,000 water rescues have taken place in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, as workers continue to locate survivors of the deadly storm, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

The course was in good nick, with wide fairways, limited out of bounds and very little water. Cost was also very attractive with a green fee, caddy fee and cart for Bt. 1200. The clubhouse needs an injection of cash but that isn’t so important.We had A & B divisions competing today and in A Division (0 to 2I) Rudy Reggenass returned the best score of the day with 41 points. Coming in second was Dave Maw, who is hitting form late in his stay, and third spot went to Bill Steinmann with a consistent game as per usual.Div B went to Patrick Poussier with an excellent score of 40 points, three ahead of Bernie McCart who is also having a bit of a purple patch. Third past the post and getting the nod was Colin Stielow, taking out a podium finish via the count back system and beating Alan Ray and Gordon Clegg.
Raiders linebacker investigated for alleged K-9 tauntingRaiders linebacker investigated for alleged K-9 taunting
Ray-Ray Armstrong (Hannah Foslien / Getty Images/File)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ An Oakland Raiders linebacker is being investigated to determine whether he illegally taunted a police dog before a game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.Television station WTAE in Pittsburgh says a sheriff’s deputy working with the dog Sunday identified the player as Ray-Ray Armstrong.Chief Deputy Kevin Kraus says a player lifted his shirt, beat his chest and barked at the K-9 before telling a deputy to release the dog. The deputy didn’t release the dog.He tells The Associated Press the player was in uniform heading to the field. He says a decision on charges could come this week.Armstrong, the Raiders and the Steelers declined comment Tuesday.Taunting a police dog is a third-degree felony in Pennsylvania.Kraus says surveillance video captured part of the encounter.___AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL
Black Dragon Kickboxers Return Home Following Successful World ChampionshipsBlack Dragon Kickboxers Return Home Following Successful World Championships
The club had amazing success, taking on countriesfrom all over the World in Both Kickboxing & K-1 and brought home anamazing tally of Gold, Silver & Bronze medals. Michella Condelan (Cavan), Darren Woods (Galway), Finn Foley (Galway), Belle Foley (Galway), Faith Foley (Galway), Aingeal Mc Quaid (Cavan), Clodagh Foley (Galway).Middle: Larry McQuaid (Cavan), Jason Woods (Galway) Cian McCabe (Cavan), Jamie O’Sullivan (Galway), Dermot O’Rourke (Kilkenny), Sean Nugent (Kilkenny), Stephen McDonagh (Cavan), Martin Ward (Athlone), Shane Lawless (Athlone), Eamonn Byrne (Kilkenny).Front kneeling: Pete Foley (Galway). The Galway Black Dragon Kickboxing Club travelled as part of IKF Team Ireland to the Unified World Championships in Marina Di Carrara in Tuscany for almost a week-long of fighting alongside their teammates from Athlone, Cavan & Kilkenny. The Unifieds are the largest Martial ArtsChampionships on the planet and attracts thousands of competitors from some 120countries from all continents and is generally considered as the Olympics ofMartial Arts.Jamie O’Sullivan from Clonberne won out the Seniormen’s Light Heavyweight Full Contact Kickboxing Division to become WorldChampion by defeating England in the final.O’Sullivan, who was recovering from a nasty cut over the eye which he sustained just three weeks ago when he won the All Ireland Title at a big fight night in Galway, had already took on Czech Republic and then the Ukraine in the Semi-Final before meeting the teak tough Brit in the final for a savage showdown which left both men battered and bruised.Darren Woods from Corofin had seven fights out inItaly and took home 3 silver medals and one Bronze and was unlucky not to havesecured Gold in one of his divisions.At just fourteen years of age, he had the mostamount of fights out there for the entire Irish team and was in some extremelytough fights with Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia, Italy and Poland to name afew.Seven years old Belle Foley from Annaghdown had her very first K-1 rules fight in the ring with a little girl from France in the semi-final of the -22kg division and after a full-on three rounds was very unlucky not to have got the win to face England in the final.She took a well-deserved Bronze medal for her efforts and she also took a Gold medal in the -24kg section by walkover as she was the only entry in that division.Belle and her French opponent became inseparablefriends after their fight and hung out together for the whole four days of thetournament showcasing the true spirit of sport.Fourteen years old Faith Foley from Annaghdown hadfive hard fights and defeated Italy in the final of the Girls -42kg Kickboxingdivision and narrowly lost a close decision to Ukraine in the final of the -44kgdivision probably in part due to a knee injury in a fight earlier in the day.Twelve years old Finn Foley from Annaghdown had sixfights in total taking on Fighters from France, England, Hungary, Germany,Italy and Ukraine and won two Gold medals and three Silver.In one of his fights with France, he took his opponent to the canvas with a spectacular head kick, forcing an eight-count in one of the highlight moments of the championships.Clodagh Foley from Annaghdown (mother to Faith, Finn & Belle), was supposed to have a straight final with Poland in the relatively new UFR Ruleset (Unified Fighting Rules) which is fought over three rounds – the first round is Queensbury rules Boxing, the second round is regular kickboxing and the third round is Low Kick Kickboxing where you can also target the legs.She won the fight by unanimous decision leaving the Polish Fighters face well bruised up and was then informed it was actually a semi-final and she would now have to fight Denmark in the final (a late entry who was given a bye) to secure Gold.She was given 20 minutes or so to recover and wasthen back in for another 3 hard rounds.Clodagh, who at age 43, had not fought competitivelyin almost 9 years, went out and defeated the Danish fighter also by unanimousverdict to win the Veteran Ladies UFR World title.She also took a Gold medal in the senior Veteran ladies -65kg Kickboxing division by walkover due to a no show.As the team were making their way home from the Championships, John Mulligan caught up with Pete Foley who was understandably proud of his team. The rest of the Irish Squad also had a greatchampionship and won a haul of medals putting Ireland out there as one of thetop countries.The team, although well battered and bruised up, allgelled together really well and looked out for each other throughout thechampionships and thankfully took no major damage or injuries.Galway Black Dragon coach and Irish Team Manager Pete Foley was extremely proud of his fighters and indeed the entire Irish squad who all represented their clubs, counties and country with dignity and pride and flew the Irish flag with passion and respect and were all excellent ambassadors for Ireland.The sports of Kickboxing and K-1 (and UFR) areextremely hard on the mind and body, particularly at World level and ourathletes deserve far more recognition from their town councils and indeed themedia than they actually receive.However, they will continue to travel the World and fly the flag and hopefully someday, they will be more embraced by their own people for all their efforts.The Foley Family at the World Unified Games in Italy. (L-R): Pete Foley, Finn Foley, Belle Foley, Faith Foley and Clodagh Foley. print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email
