Oxlade-Chamberlain: ‘I must be patient for first team chances at Liverpool’

first_imgLiverpool Topics Share on Messenger Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Share on Pinterest Maribor Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said he must be patient for first-team opportunities at Liverpool as he is still developing and adapting to Jürgen Klopp’s methods.The England international scored his first goal for Liverpool since a £40m deadline day move from Arsenal in Tuesday’s 7-0 Champions League rout of Maribor. The strike, which Klopp claimed would lift the midfielder’s confidence and “open his chest”, followed an impressive substitute’s display against Manchester United on Saturday. Share on LinkedIn Share on Facebook Share via Email news Oxlade-Chamberlain, however, has made only one start under Klopp – the Carabao Cup defeat at Leicester City – with the manager saying a training schedule interrupted by international breaks has not helped the deadline-day signing to adapt. The 24-year-old accepts he must bide his time to impress at Anfield.“It’s a competitive team that I’ve come in to,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain. “We’re in an important part of the season where we want to get off to a good start and we’ve got a few results that haven’t gone our way. Everyone’s fighting for their place and I’m just ready for when I get the opportunity. I need to keep developing and learning a new style of play here and get used to that and then whenever I get my opportunities, try to do as well as I can.”Liverpool had endured a frustrating run of one win in eight matches before recording their biggest European away victory in Slovenia, with results not reflecting the level of often dominant performances. But everything “clicked” in Maribor, according to Oxlade-Chamberlain.He added: “I think we started with the right intensity. The manager said when we come to these places it’ll be a tough game, we can’t be complacent, we need to give them 100% effort and I think the boys did that right from the off. Even at half-time he was still pushing for us to do better and react again because we thought they’d come out and give it a good go, so the boys reacted really well again after half-time and ultimately we got everything we deserved.“More to the point we were more clinical, putting away all our chances, or near enough all of them. Every week it feels like we’ve got a lot of goals in us and it’s just not clicking right at the final moment. I think we create a lot of opportunities and I hear people saying the stats are always Liverpool have 20 shots a game, so if we keep doing those things – that’s the important thing, that we keep creating chances and keep trying and hopefully it’ll come off for us and against Maribor they did.” Read more Champions League Reuse this content Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah lead Liverpool rout of Mariborlast_img read more

Has Botox For Men Gone Mainstream?

first_img How to Choose the Right Dress Shirt Why Mental Health Matters (and Why It’s Time to Change Our Perspective) Retinol For Men: What to Know and What to Buy Sure, you’re into the latest grooming lotions and potions. But are you ready to make Botox a regular part of your grooming routine? It’s gone more mainstream than you think, and Botox for men may be just the tip of the anti-aging iceberg. According to The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the number of men having cosmetic procedures has increased 325 percent since 19. Wow!In fact, TV analyst, Hall of Famer, and former pro football and baseball player Deion “Primetime” Sanders is now the spokesperson for the Botox brand. “I’ve always taken pride in my appearance. Turning 50 prompted me to take an honest look in the mirror. When I did, I noticed lines between my brows and in the corners of my eyes — and that’s just not Prime. So that’s why I’m telling men is that, if they’re like me, and don’t like seeing frown lines and crow’s feet, they should talk to a doctor. I did, and with his help, made the choice to get treated with Botox Cosmetic.”In case you’re curious about taking the plunge, we reached out to plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer, MD, FACS for his insights on using Botox to refresh trouble spots and keep you in your prime.Have you seen a steady uptick in the number of men seeking Botox?There certainly is a greater number of men coming in for Botox treatments. There are several groups of patients that see improvement of their wrinkles with Botox. Some are younger guys in their 20s to 30s that start to see the early stages of aging and want to do some preventive Botox. Others are starting a new stage of life — either a career change or divorce — and seek improvements in their looks, while others are worried about looking older at work or are actively interviewing for work and want to maximize their appearance during the interview process.Do you find that your patients have specific reasons for treatment? Do they want to look younger because they’re dating or back on the job market? Or, do men just want to look their best?Yes, either prevention, improving their appearance, or treating trouble areas between their eyebrows (labella), to the sides of their eyes (crow’s feet), or forehead worry lines. Also, we commonly use Botox to help slim the face by injecting in the masseter muscle along the jawline or in the chin to prevent dimpling of the skin. Another common use of Botox in men is for underarm sweating.  One treatment per season can decrease sweating by more than 90 percent.What is the average age of your male patients?The average age of a male patient seeking Botox for the first time is 40. In women, it’s closer to 30 years old.Should men start using Botox at a younger age to prevent wrinkles?Yes, preventive Botox is a real thing. Using Botox to soften dynamic wrinkles with movement decreases stress on the skin and prevents the development of static wrinkles that you can see even at rest.Are there particular areas of the face that bother men more than women? Are there trouble spots specific to men?The most common area for men are the squinting lines to the sides of the eyes. These are commonly called crow’s feet. The most common area for women is the “11’s” or glabella, which is the area between the eyebrows with vertical wrinkles. Both men and women are seeking treatment for the horizontal forehead lines.Wrinkles and laugh lines often give men their rugged good looks. Is there a way to refresh a man’s complexion without taking away from the character of his face?The goal with Botox in men is to soften the wrinkles without affecting animation or character. I would rather under-treat someone and have him, or her, come back for more than to over-treat someone and have them look abnormal.Are most men happy with the results? Do they come back as often as your female patients?Botox for men and women is the No. 1 treatment over all other treatments in any specialty. Botox has a very high satisfaction rate, lower complication rate, no downtime, and is very cost-effective compared to doing other treatments, such as laser or surgery.Do you think there is a stigma attached to Botox for men or has the treatment gone mainstream? As with most things, society has evolved. While in some circles the use of Botox may not have started yet, in metropolitan an areas, in the financial and business world, men are taking care of themselves and concentrating on their appearance, which involves the use of Botox.Also, with the exponential rise of social media and camera phones, people are more aware of their appearance. Many camera phones do not have selfie flashes, so the pictures are not washed out with the exposure of the flash — this makes wrinkles more apparent and people come in looking for treatment.

Trelawny Venue of First National Jamaica Day Celebration

first_imgThousands of students from schools across the island are expected to converge at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium in Trelawny on Friday (February 22) for the first national Jamaica Day celebration.The national activity will be a celebration of Jamaica’s culture and will feature a parade, reading of the Jamaica Day Proclamation, drumming, performances by gospel choirs, among others.Speaking at a recent JIS Think, Director of the Culture in Education Programme in the Ministry of Education, Amina Blackwood-Meeks, informed that within the stadium, “a gala will be mounted that will centre the students in the experiences that some of us had in 1962. ” “We want to build a generation that will be centered in memories that will drive their understanding of their citizenship,” she stated.Ms. Blackwood-Meeks told JIS News that the six education regions will be asked to mount displays depicting their interpretation of the Jamaica Day theme: ‘Celebrating Jamaica: I’m On It’This interpretation, she explained, should be centered on their uniqueness, for example, “the region in which Trelawny falls, which has yam and Usain Bolt, they would have a different interpretation from the region in which St. Thomas Technical High School falls, being the place in Jamaica where the sun rises first, hence the name Golden Grove.”Agencies such as the African Caribbean Institute of Jamaica (ACIJ)/Jamaica Memory Bank; Social Development Commission (SDC); Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT), Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC); National Library of Jamaica; and the Jamaica Library Service (JLS), are expected to participate. Education Outreach Officer at the ACIJ, Tracian Meikle, told JIS News that“on Jamaica Day, we will be putting on a display showcasing Jamaica’s culture.”“It will focus on persons or groups that have really fought to make Jamaica what it is today. For example, we will have a display showcasing Maroon artefacts, the period of slavery, and abolitionists, who actually fought to make us free”. The event is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. Aspects of the extravaganza will be transmitted live on CVM Television, which is one of the event partners.Ms. Blackwood-Meeks said that in addition to the national event, schools will be required to celebrate Jamaica Day in their own way. “But whatever we do, we want to make sure we involve our communities, the Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA) our police, our youth clubs, our churches, and so,” she stated.last_img read more

Jamaica will Continue Relations with CARICOM– PM Holness

first_imgStory Highlights “The commissioning of the review was never driven by any pre-conceived notion that Jamaica should sever its membership of CARICOM or other regional arrangements. Our ultimate goal, which I believe we have accomplished, was to undertake a long overdue forensic analysis of CARICOM’s structure, procedures and practices with a view to maximizing the benefits accrued at the national and regional levels”, said Prime Minister Holness.

Djokovic Osaka win Miami openers as Thiem tumbles

first_imgMiami: Novak Djokovic put his Indian Wells disappointment behind him on Friday at the ATP and WTA Miami Open with a ruthless 7-6 (7/2) 6-2 destruction of Australian Bernard Tomic to move into the third round. The Serbian world number one endured a meek exit at the hands of German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the California desert but arrived desperate to land what would be a record seventh title in South Florida. Tomic, the current world No. 81, gave the 31-year-old a few problems yet the Australian struggles to consistently challenge the best players and this was evident once again as Djokovic eased through the gears at Hard Rock Stadium with just one hour and 13 minutes on the clock. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh “In Indian Wells I wasn’t feeling my best,” conceded Djokovic who won 81 per cent of points on his first serve and hit 11 aces. “Everyone has nerves coming onto center court regardless of how much experience you have and what your ranking is. You care about it and if you are nervous that means you care. “I commonly feel like that. This was my first time playing at this new stadium, it felt like being indoor a little bit. It’s unique. “Now hopefully,” he added, “I can build some momentum.” On a day that saw Djokovic, top-ranked woman Naomi Osaka and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams advance, the shock of the day was the departure of Indian Wells Masters winner Dominic Thiem, who was beaten 6-4 6-4 by highly rated Polish 22-year-old Hubert Hurkacz.

The fifth seed lost to Serbian Dusan Lajovic 2-6 6-2 6-3 but reigning champion John Isner outlasted Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego 7-6 (7/2) 7-6, (9/7). Japanese star Osaka had to keep her emotions in check as she opened her campaign by outlasting Yanina Wickmayer 6-0 6-7 (3/7) 6-1. Since winning her second consecutive Grand Slam title in January at the Australian Open, Osaka has failed to go deep in Dubai or Indian Wells. But she appeared in solid form against 141st-ranked Wickmayer, despite losing her way in the middle of an entertaining match at Hard Rock Stadium. The 21 year-old was forced to dig deep after the Belgian, who reached the Miami Open last eight in 2010, forced a third set as Osaka’s game badly dipped. – ‘Just breathe’ – ================== “In the second set, I got really emotional, so in the third, I just tried to shut off my feelings,” Osaka said. “I started thinking about winning and not the things I could do in order to win. I had a dip and she started playing really well. “I just had to breathe and regroup,” she said. “I find myself doing it often when I am in emotional situations, it’s like an energy saver.” Next up in the third round is Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-Wei, who defeated American Alison Riske 6-2, 7-5. The pair had a rollercoaster clash in the Australian Open at the start of 2019 with Hsieh a set and 4-1 up in Melbourne only to lose a dramatic third-round encounter. Serena Williams survived a second-set lull to beat Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson 6-3 1-6 6-1 and elder sister Venus also advanced with a 7-6 (7/4) 6-1 win over Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro. There will be a repeat of last week’s WTA final in Indian Wells between Bianca Andreescu and Angelique Kerber. Canadian 18-year-old Andreescu, who brilliantly won her maiden WTA title in California, beat American Sofia Kenin 6-3 6-3 to book a third-round meeting with three-time Grand Slam winner Kerber, who saw off Russia’s Karolina Muchova 3-6 6-3 6-3.last_img read more

Education of boys subject of next Community Learning session

Boys have been lagging behind girls in academic achievement in recent years, and John Storm says it’s a modern dynamic that signals trouble.John StormStorm, a community volunteer and owner of Oxford Learning in St. Catharines, worries for our social and financial future. Young men are earning fewer degrees, gaining fewer employable skills and lagging behind girls in test scores, he said.Storm will be the main speaker at an upcoming Community Learning session on Oct. 17 entitled “The education of boys: our goals and fears.”“I hope by the end of the evening that we have a few people who can spark the same conversation with other groups of people,” he said. “This is an important issue.”The session is just one of 14 Conversation Cafés planned for the Community Learning fall season. “The education of boys: our goals and fears” will be moderated by Kim Yielding, manager of communications and public relations with the District School Board of Niagara. Storm will speak for about 15 minutes, followed by about an hour of group discussion.“We know a couple of things,” said Storm, who hosts a weekly current affairs show, Taking Niagara by Storm, on TV Cogeco. “We know that boys are failing academically like never before. We know that their communication skills are lagging.”Kate CassidyIn a transitioning area like Niagara where unemployment is high, it’s important that our young men are flourishing, he said.“My hope is that if we get 15 or 20 people in a room, we can get things done, even if it’s to get more people talking about this.”Getting people talking is the purpose of Community Learning, now in its second year. Other topics this season include “Can human differences peacefully co-exist?” on Nov. 6 and “Why do we hide hurt, illness, and injury?” on Nov. 14.• Download the Community Learning brochure with a full list of sessionsCommunity Learning tackles topics that are current and appeal to a broad range of people, said director Kate Cassidy.“We try to bring different people together from across Niagara who wouldn’t typically have the opportunity to interact with each other to discuss questions with no easy answers and hear other’s unique perspectives.”Conversation Cafes are free and held in meeting rooms and coffee shops across Niagara, Cassidy said. Some people come with statistics. Some people come with opinions.“Whatever people want to bring to it, we want them there,” she said. “If they want to come listen, that’s important. If they want to come talk, that’s important too.”Community Learning also hosts Community Discovery events such as the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts on Oct. 15, and “Family Learning Adventures” such as the Robo Tech: Vehicle Challenge on Oct. 15 in Fort Erie and Mega Mystery Niagara at Brock on Oct. 22.Storm will also participate in the session “Why get involved in the community? Motivations, benefits and methods” on Nov. 21.The education of boys: our goals and fearsWhen: Monday, Oct. 17, 7 to 8:30 p.m.Where: Coffee Culture, 4388 Queen St., Niagara FallsCost: free read more

First fully autonomous Epiroc SmartROC D65 perfected at Newmont Goldcorp Hollinger

first_imgEpiroc, one of the leaders in mining and mining equipment automation development, says it is constantly pushing the boundaries in the rock excavation industry. Proof of this is that the world’s first fully autonomous SmartROC D65 surface drill rig, is now in production.“In the midst of the 4th industrial revolution, Epiroc presents an important milestone for surface drilling in open-pit mining and quarrying. With a push of a button it is now possible to complete entire drill patterns autonomously.”Not only will this remove the operator from potentially hazardous benches in a mine or a quarry, it will let the operator carry out other tasks while the rig is drilling. Other benefits are increased productivity and better hole quality. This means more holes drilled per shift, in part because automating the drilling process results in continuous operations without breaks and with less wear on drilling tools. In addition to this, positioning is faster and more accurate.Epiroc says the achievement would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the strong partnership between Epiroc and Newmont Goldcorp and their dedicated staff in the Hollinger open-pit mine in Timmins, Canada. Epiroc’s 6th Sense way of working was used to implement and develop the fully autonomous SmartROC D65. In the project, Epiroc and Newmont Goldcorp collaborated on a tailored solution that gathers ongoing insights to optimise process and people performance and unlock the potential of machine automation using interoperability.“The Hollinger project is a perfect example of collaboration between a mining company and Epiroc, which demonstrates what our industry is capable of achieving. The future is very exciting,” says Brian Doffing, President of the Surface and Exploration Drilling division at Epiroc.Autonomous drilling employs already existing technologies developed by Epiroc, such as Rod Handling System (RHS), Hole Navigation System (HNS) and Auto Positioning. Another crucial factor is the scalability of the Rig Control System (RCS).“To make this work we are using the smart functions on the drill rig that are already there. Since we developed these functions over the years we have a good understanding of how to incorporate them in the autonomous mode,” says Mayya Popova, Product Manager Automation, Surface and Exploration Drilling division at Epiroc.last_img read more

Namakwa enlists FLSmidth pumps to cut downtime costs at Kao diamond mine

first_imgThe installation of a FLSmidth KREBS millMAX™ pump at Namawka Diamonds’ Kao mine, in Lesotho, is, according to the mining equipment maker, providing the miner with significant cost savings through increased impeller, casing and back liner wear life.FLSmidth’s engagement at Kao started when the mine required a pump conversion in the field – an undertaking that can be difficult and time consuming, according to the mining OEM. “It is also a high-stakes operation as a cyclone feed is critical to the overall process and ability to generate returns. A wrong decision can mean a lot of lost revenue,” the company said.It was the potential for cost efficiency that convinced Kao diamond mine to implement the KREBS millMAX Pump. After initial discussions, the first trial pump – a millMAX 8×6 centrifugal seal (C/S) – was installed in a cyclone feed application (DMS 2 pump 1).Initial results after seven months showed the millMAX was performing extremely well on the wear side, according to FLSmidth.“So, once you get the green light, you need to confirm the duty details and measure up the existing installation to ensure that when you begin to install the pump there are no surprises,” the company said.Brad Moralee, Head of Product Unit Pumps, Cyclones and Valves at FLSmidth, said: “It’s high pressure for us: you are typically given a window of opportunity during a shutdown to complete the change, after which the new pump must run as expected when the plant is re-started.“You need the combination of a great product but, more importantly, great technical understanding of the duty to be able to propose the correct solution. We understand what is at stake from the customer side.”The change produced impressive results in comparison with the previous solution from another supplier, according to FLSmidth, with the millMAX increasing the wear life by nine times, across impeller, casing and back liner. “This has seen Kao make significant cost saving on direct replacement costs, reduced downtime and saved labour expenditure,” the company said.While Kao mine operators were impressed with the benefits from the switch, a slight gland leakage was causing concern, according to FLSmidth. To resolve this, FLSmidth suggested running a one-month trial with the slurryMAX, which had just recently arrived on the South Africa market.“The slurryMAX trial was based purely on its sealing capabilities as Kao were confident of the hydraulic performance of the pump and had no concern about wear as they were confident the slurryMAX would show predictable and even wear life across all wet-end parts,” the company said.Kao’s confidence also came from the fact the slurryMAX design is based on the millMAX range, whose wear ring technology has created an efficient and long-lasting slurry pump.The main difference between the millMAX and the slurryMAX is that the millMAX is an all-metal pump meaning it does not have an outer casing and an inner wear liner (the casing itself is made from the high chrome wear material), while the slurryMAX is a split casing design that has a replaceable inner liner. The purpose of this design is that multiple material liner options are available to fit in the same outer casing.“The slurryMAX features an improved, more efficient impeller and an optional water drain plug for easier maintenance, allowing water that might have settled at the bottom of the pump to be drained quickly,” the company said.Leigh Rieder, FLSmidth Sales Engineer, concluded: “Kao is extremely happy with the hydraulics and lack of excessive wear of our pumps, which has meant that their cost of ownership is low. We have recently received an order from the customer for two more slurryMAX pumps and they have expressed interest in our slurryMAX 6×4 and slurryMAX 10×8 pumps.”last_img read more
