Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum has been linked to Barcelona, and on Saturday, Mundo Deportivo explained why Ronald Koeman ‘endorses’ the midfielder’s signing. Sport now claim the possibility of the 29-year-old arriving at Camp Nou is ‘beginning to take shape’, more so after Koeman made his signing a ‘priority’.The Reds player has now become a ‘non-negotiable goal’ for the former Everton manager.Wijnaldum’s contract lasts until 2021, and no renewal looks imminent with the Merseyside club. Liverpool may be encouraged to open the door for his sale this summer to avoid losing him for nothing a year later.According to the report, Barca are waiting for the Premier League winners to ‘close’ Thiago Alcântara’s signing from Bayern Munich, to initiate contacts for Wijnaldum.Those in charge at the Catalan club believe they will have a ‘free hand’ to address the Dutchman’s signing, once Liverpool secure Thiago’s services. Sport believe Wijnaldum would cost around €25m.Mundo Deportivo also has an update on the former Newcastle United man, and their title reads, ‘Silence from all parties around Wijnaldum’.Within the report, it’s explained Barca are not responding about the recent reports linking them to the midfielder, while they don’t completely rule out his arrival.There’s ‘total secrecy’.The player is aware he will lose prominence if Thiago arrives at Anfield. However, his entourage doesn’t want to provide any excessive clues about his future.Mundo contacted his agent Humphry Nijman regarding the possibility of Wijnaldum leaving Liverpool in this window.The representative insisted he doesn’t discuss transfers, but didn’t rule out ‘existence of contacts and negotiations’, most likely with Barcelona. Mundo state all parties are working with the ‘utmost discretion without ruling out that there may be a definitive advance in the coming days’.Time should tell…by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏！来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Miami-Dade motorists paid millions in tolls during 2015/16Miami-Dade motorists paid millions in tolls during 2015/16
Miami-Dade motorists paid millions in tolls during 2015/16The recently released Miami-Dade Expressway (MDX) 2016 Comprehensive Annual Report indicates the agency that controls tolls and maintains county expressways made a significant increase in toll revenue over 2015.The MDX realized revenue of $235 million from tolls over the period June 2015/July 2016 from four county highways – The Don Shula Expressway (Highway 836), The Dolphin Expressway, Gratigny (Highway 924), Airport Expressway (Highway 812), and Snapper Creek Expressway (Highway 878). The 2015/16 toll revenue was 28 percent higher than the previous year.Over the past year during which the MDX increased tolls on all the exits of the Dolphin and Airport expressways, and placed more overhead electronic toll places on the Dolphin Expressway, motorists have complained about high tolls. Percival Lindo who lives in Dadeland and travels the Dolphin and Don Shula expressways daily to and from his job at Miami International Airport says he spends an average of $100 per month on Sunpass, the automated decal motorist affix to their windshields from which tolls are deducted.According to reports, tolls on the five heavily traveled Miami-Dade highways increased by 82 percent since 2014.Since 2015, the MDX has attempted to appease motorist criticisms of increase in toll fees by implementing a rebate program. Under this program motorists who uses the highways frequently and register with MDX’s Cash Back Program are eligible to receive a cash rebate on tolls paid through the Sunpass program.In a recent press release, the MDX indicated over 54,000 drivers registered for this year’s MDX Cash Back Program. The agency is in the process of distributing a 30 percent refund of tolls paid on the five MDX expressways to motorists. These refunds total $5.5 million, averaging approximately $100 per motorist.The primary purpose of toll revenue collected by MDX is funding the costs of maintaining and expanding county highways. The agency’s executive director, Javier Rodriquez, says the revenue funds expensive projects including expressway inter-exchange modifications and flyovers. “Through toll revenue citizens of Miami-Dade are relieved of tax burdens to meet these expenses.”The 2016 MDX report revealed motorists using the five highways paid an average of $628,000 in tolls daily in 2016, up from $346,000 daily in 2014. Most of the 2015/16 toll revenue, $139 million, was collected on the Dolphin Expressway, followed by $38 million collected on the Don Shula Expressway.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told parliament last week that the return of sport on TV would “provide a much-needed boost to national morale”. F1 organisers are hoping to start the season with the Austrian Grand Prix on July 5 behind closed doors, followed by a second race at the Red Bull Ring a week later. It was hoped Silverstone could then host two races in the final two weekends in July. Should quarantine measures not be lifted for elite sport then they could also have a major impact on the participation of British sides in European football competition.

Gun safety group calls ‘stand your ground’ law ‘evil’Gun safety group calls ‘stand your ground’ law ‘evil’
Carletta Knox-Seymour of Cedar RapidsThe group “Iowans for Gun Safety” is urging state senators to either reject the gun-related bill that has cleared the House in its entirety or make some major changes.“Human rights are being overlooked for gun rights,” said Carletta Knox-Seymour, president of the board of Iowans for Gun Safety.She spoke at a statehouse news conference late this morning.“We’ve done a lot of work. This is not our last effort, but it is one of our stronger efforts that we hope to get something across to them,” Knox-Seymour said. “…If this doesn’t do anything, we’re geared up to go in front of the governor…This is not the last call. We are moving forward.”The group is particularly concerned about provisions that remove a gun owner’s duty to retreat if their life or property are threatened. Reverend Erin Gingrich of the First Unitarian Church in Des Moines said those “stand your ground” provisions deserve “intense scrutiny.”Rev. Erin Gingrich.“Black people are far too often perceived as threatening simple because they are black. ‘Stand Your Ground’ gives legal sanction for racism,” Gingrich said. “We must not legislate evil.”The group is also calling on senators to reject House-passed language that would allow children under the age of 14 to handle pistols and handguns.Dr. Amy Shriver works at Blank Children’s Clinic in Des Moines and she has this message for senators: “Childhood firearms injuries and deaths are preventable. The pediatricians in Iowa implore you to help us do our job. Please don’t make it harder for me to keep children out of harm’s way.”Iowans for Gun Safety has a list of things they’d not only like to see subtracted from the bill, but their list of additions includes a yearly criminal background check for Iowans who want a permit to carry a concealed weapon. According to the group, that’s not infringing on gun rights, but is a method of keeping guns out of criminal’s hands.The bill’s floor manager in the senate recently said he’d ask his fellow senators to make some “technical corrections” in the House-passed bill, but he and others predict the major components of the bill will remain.Share this:FacebookTwitter
Officials want obesity to be recognized as diseaseOfficials want obesity to be recognized as disease
LANSING, Mich. | Current and former top public health officials are calling on states and the federal government to recognize obesity as a disease.Former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson will be in Lansing on Wednesday to urge Congress to pass legislation requiring Medicare to cover obesity medicines for seniors. The ex-Wisconsin governor is expected to join Michigan Department of Community Health Director James Haveman at a news conference in the state Capitol building.Haveman plans to outline progress made on Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s health and wellness plan.Eighteen percent of Michigan’s population was obese in 1995. The rate reached 32 percent by 2010, and officials are warning half of the state’s residents could be obese by 2030.

Apollon host Atalanta at the GSP Stadium tonight (8pm), where a win is of maximum importance if the Cypriots are to stand a chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League.After two consecutive away matches in the competition, Apollon will be looking to make use of their home advantage in order to steer their European campaign back in the right direction.Sofronis Avgousti’s men salvaged late draws against Lyon and Everton in their first two matches, but a heavy 3-1 defeat at Atalanta last time out leaves them three points adrift of second place.At the Mapei Stadium a fortnight ago, Apollon were dealt a harsh lesson against the quick and free-flowing attack of Atalanta. Despite Andre Schembri cancelling out Josip Ilicic’s opener, Apollon eventually collapsed under Atalanta’s heavy pressure, with Andrea Petagna and Remo Freuler scoring shortly after.Therefore, Apollon will be fully aware that three points against the Italians is a tough ask, but it is a result they must pursue after Lyon’s win at Everton puts them three points above the Cypriots in second.Despite being top of the group with seven points, Atalanta will be as hungry as Apollon as they know that a win coupled with Everton failing to defeat Lyon will see them through.As far as team news goes, Valentin Roberge remains suspended for the red card he picked up at Goodison Park on Matchday Two, while Andrei Pitian, who deputised for the French defender in Italy, is a doubt.Long-serving defender Angelis Angeli featured in Apollon’s weekend win over Doxa after ten months out injured but is not expected to start, with the club looking to wean him back carefully after his lengthy absence.That means that Brazilian midfielder Alef may have to drop from midfield into central defence, a role that he has played on a handful of occasions. Apollon have made a perfect start to their league campaign at home, winning all four of their matches. They also happen to be unbeaten in their last eight Europa League matches in front of their own supporters, the last one being that memorable 93rd minute equaliser against Lyon in the opening group game of the season. The current Apollon setup is renowned for its attacking potency, and the fact that they have scored at least one goal in each of their last 11 European games shows they are able to compete regardless of the opposition.Against Italian sides, however, Apollon have yet to win in five matches, recording three away defeats and two home draws. The last Italian club to face Apollon in Cyprus were Lazio, in the group stages of the same competition in 2013/14 – a 0-0 draw at the GSP. In fact, no club from Cyprus has beaten Italian opposition in 23 UEFA competition fixtures.Atalanta are flying in Europe but last year’s fourth-placed side in Serie A have made an average start domestically, currently lying in tenth position after 11 matches.
