Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says he expects a difficult game as they travel to the Etihad for Sunday’s Manchester derby.Matic believes United should focus on their game rather than concentrating on City’s attacking threat.“I expect a very difficult game,“ Matic told United website.”They are a very good side, they play good football, they score a lot of goals in every game, but we also have our qualities which we have to use.Report: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“We have to stop them in their attacks, there is a way to do it and the manager knows that. We will prepare for the game.“I expect a hard game but, in a derby, everything is possible, and we will be ready for that.“I think that we believe more that we are a good team, we have also improved and mentally we are stronger.“I think in the last four league games we have three wins and a draw, so this gives you more confidence, but we deserve that and will try to continue in this way.”
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has called Craig Levein childish after the Hearts boss directed his rant at him, accusing him of hypocrisy over referee’s criticism.He adds that experience thought him one doesn’t achieve anything meaningful from criticizing refs.“I have been in the game a long time and I find the reaction to what I said about Hearts strange,” said McInnes, according to Evening Times.“I find it irrational and childish. Is the language strange? I think people can make their own opinions on that.”“I find it really disappointing from someone who has done so much in the game and who I have the highest of regard for.”“Craig has intimated that I phoned him and is trying to cast aspersions.”“Let’s be clear about this – he phoned me.”“He said I was crying my eyes out but who made the call? He was the one complaining and he hasn’t stopped moaning since.”News: Pereira has gone on loan from United to Hearts George Patchias – August 13, 2019 The young Portuguese goalkeeper has secured a loan deal for the remainder of the season to Hearts of the Scottish Premier League.According to a…“We played Rangers and then next day I was on the school run when the phone rang and it was Craig.”“I was still so pleased with my team from winning the game. It was a private phone call and he has put it into the public domain. There is more I could say about that call but I won’t.”“He said to me ‘what are we going to do about these referees’ and my reaction to that was you carry on your crusade but for me over 11 years as a manager, you don’t get any benefit from criticising refs.”“The call came from Craig, which I found surprising because he’s not someone I normally speak to. There was distortion of what happened. Why would I call Craig to complain about referees? You need to ask him why he phoned me to complain about refs?”“It’s disappointing, I want to concentrate on my team but he decided to create this by putting a private conversation into the public domain.”“I felt it was even from the last game at Tynecastle, where they got two penalties but he wanted four or five that day. Last Saturday I felt we were hands-down the better team but the first question I was asked was about Craig saying he felt they should have had a couple of penalties.”

But the migrants who crossed Mexico in a caravan may face a long legal path.Caravan organizers said eight members of the group criticized by President Donald Trump that traveled from southern Mexico to the border city of Tijuana were allowed in to be interviewed by asylum officers, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not provide a number.About 140 others were still waiting in Mexico to turn themselves in at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing, the nation’s busiest, said Alex Mensing, project organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which is leading the caravan.“The spirits are high, there was good news for everybody,” Mensing said on the Mexican side of the crossing, moments after learning that some were allowed in.U.S. attorneys who volunteered advice in Tijuana last week warned the Central Americans that parents may be separated from their children and be detained for many months while their asylum cases are pending.Asylum-seekers are typically held up to three days at the border and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. If they pass initial screenings by asylum officers, they may be detained or released with ankle monitors while their cases wind through immigration court, which can take years.Nearly 80 percent of asylum-seekers passed the initial screening from October through December, but few are likely to win asylum.The denial rate for El Salvadorans seeking asylum was 79 percent from 2012 to 2017, according to asylum outcome information from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Action Clearinghouse. Hondurans were close behind with a 78 percent denial rate, followed Guatemalans at 75 percent.Trump administration officials have railed against what they call “legal loopholes” and “catch-and-release” policies that allow people seeking asylum to be freed while their cases are adjudicated. The president tweeted Monday that the caravan “shows how weak & ineffective U.S. immigration laws are.”Attorney General Jeff Sessions has pledged to send more immigration judges to the border if needed and threatened criminal prosecution. On Monday, the Justice Department said it filed illegal entry charges against 11 people identified as caravan members.U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it processed hundreds of asylum-seekers in the previous week, many of them Mexican, which contributed to a bottleneck that led inspectors to turn away caravan members since they arrived late Sunday afternoon.Asylum-seekers did not appear to be thrown off the by the delay.Elin Orrellana, a 23-year-old pregnant woman from El Salvador, said she is fleeing the violent MS-13 street gang, a favorite target of both Sessions and Trump because of their brutal killings in communities in the United States. She said her older sister had been killed by the gang in El Salvador, so she is attempting to join other family members in the Kansas City area.“Fighting on is worth it,” she said.Customs and Border Protection has room for about 300 people at the San Diego border crossing.“As in the past when we’ve had to limit the number of people we can bring in for processing at a given time, we expect that this will be a temporary situation,” the agency said.During a surge of Haitian arrivals at the San Diego crossing in 2016, Customs and Border Protection required people to wait more than five weeks in Mexico. Since then, smaller upticks of Mexican asylum-seekers have caused delays of several hours.

Serving Seniors: Benefits of exercise January 7, 2019 Posted: January 7, 2019 Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, San Diego (KUSI) – There are countless benefits to exercise, no matter what age. For older adults, many studies point to how exercise is important for the mind and the body.The Serving Seniors’ Walkers is a club made up of low-income seniors who walk every Tuesday and Thursday.Paul Downey, president and CEO of Serving Seniors, shared tips on how to put one step in front of the other heading into the New Year on Good Morning San Diego.6 TIPS TO GET SENIORS WALKING IN 2019:1. Find a friend. Walking is easier, and safer, with a friend. Setting a walking date can keep you accountable and socially engaged.2. Visit the mall. Many shopping centers open early to allow walkers to take advantage of the indoor square footage. Or, visit during shopping hours to leisurely browse and people watch as you get some steps in. Most malls have plenty of public seating, providing a respite when you need a break.3. Join a local health club. If you are unsure of how to start, a local health club is a wonderful option. Professionals can help keep you safe by creating a walking or exercise program to suit your needs. And, most treadmills have handrails to help stabilize yourself while you walk.4. Go grocery shopping. You may not even realize it but running errands can really rack up the steps! From the car to the store, and from aisle to aisle, running an errand daily is a simple way to get exercise as well as get out and about. Use a shopping cart to help stabilize yourself as you walk – and remember to wear good walking shoes.5. Volunteer. Finding a volunteer activity can keep you social and physically active. The humane society may need help walking dogs. Volunteering as a local museum docent can give you a chance to help visitors. Here at Serving Seniors we have volunteer opportunities like helping serve meals to seniors, assisting in the computer lab or fitness room, and of course there are leadership positions on our board6. Take some laps in the house. If you are housebound, there are ways to still get some daily walking in. Set a timer to remind yourself to get up every thirty minutes and take a lap from room to room. Or, every time you use the restroom, touch each of the four walls of your house before returning to your seat. Small activities can make a big difference in your cardiovascular health, and before long you’ll have more stamina to walk further.For more information click here.

Call it an electric ending to the school year.A Battle Ground school bus carrying 38 students home from their final day of class Friday struck and snapped a power pole, knocking a live power line onto its roof and causing a brief, local power outage.Students were trapped in the bus for several minutes.But no one was reported injured following the incident, shortly before 1 p.m.Route 13 bus riders had been picked up from Amboy Middle and Yacolt Primary schools, 19 students apiece, a school district spokesman said.The bus was operated by Petermann Northwest, private school bus contractor for Battle Ground Public Schools.Headed north just outside Yacolt, the bus apparently veered off Northeast Worthington Road and into a ditch near 354th Street, clipping the power pole.The driver kept riders inside and radioed for assistance.Crews from Fire District 13 and North Country EMS arrived within minutes to evaluate all the passengers and the driver, while keeping the scene secure.Soon afterward, a Clark Public Utilities crew arrived to deal with the shattered pole and downed power wire.The crew cut the power, and removed the pole and line from the bus before restoring power to 981 customers after a three-minute outage, a utility spokeswoman said.A relief bus delivered the stranded pupils while others continued home on foot, the district spokesman said. School officials notified the families of all the affected students.
Home sales in Clark County inched down in April, although the median price — half sold for more, half for less — crept higher. There were 400 closed sales in April, down 2.9 percent from March and a 4.3 percent decline from April 2011, according to Portland-based RMLS. The median price rose in April for the first time in more than four years, rising by $100 to $190,000 from $189,900 the same month last year.WASHINGTON — Americans are buying more homes in every region of the country, the latest indication that the housing market could be on the mend. An increasing portion of those sales are from first-time buyers, who are critical to a housing recovery.Sales of previously occupied homes rose 3.4 percent in April from March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.62 million, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday. That nearly matches January’s pace of 4.63 million — the best in two years. It is still well below the nearly 6 million that most economists equate with healthy markets.A pickup in hiring and cheaper mortgages, combined with lower home prices in most markets, has made homebuying more attractive. While many economists acknowledged that the market has a long way to go, most said the April sales report was encouraging.“The trend in sales is upward, and we think it has a good deal further to go over the next few months as payrolls pick up further and mortgage availability improves,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist for High Frequency Economics.
Entrepreneur Don Sidhu poses for a portrait at his business, Beverage Depot, on Friday. Don Sidhu got into the liquor business to follow his dream of owning a successful business.Raised in an entrepreneurial culture, the 39-year-old Vancouver businessman has helped family and friends operate liquor stores in other states. The experience made Sidhu confident he could make a decent living selling booze after Washington’s switch from a state-operated liquor system to private store sales.His supporters also were certain, backing Sidhu up with $2.1 million in seed money that he used to purchase four liquor store businesses formerly run by the state.But the dream began to unravel on the first day of business in June. Sidhu’s customers balked at higher check-stand prices on liquor; a 17 percent retailers’ fee and a 10 percent distribution fee were added to the price of every bottle at ring up. Customers told Sidhu that they would buy their booze at Oregon’s lower-priced, state-operated stores.“They were just shocked when all of those taxes added up,” said Sidhu, who said he suffered many sleepless nights when the full extent of his business troubles dawned on him.In addition to the fees, Sidhu found out the big-box stores and chains were getting much lower prices on booze from Washington’s new distribution businesses. Prices in Oregon ran as much as 22 percent lower than his. The uneven competition was sucking the life out of Sidhu’s business.
Vancouver police arrested two people Wednesday for allegedly harboring a runaway teen who was found Tuesday.Lori M. Kingrey, 50, and her 17-year-old son were arrested on suspicion of harboring a runaway, Isabella Castillo, 16, according to a news release from the Vancouver Police Department. Castillo had been missing from her home in central Vancouver for more than two weeks. Based on a tip from a friend, the family feared she was involved in sex-trafficking. She was found by police safe and unharmed Tuesday and is currently staying with family friends.An investigation revealed that Castillo had been staying at Kingrey’s home in the 900 block of West 17th Street, the news release said. The 17-year-boy is supposedly Castillo’s boyfriend. Kingrey was booked into the Clark County Jail and her son was taken to the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center.“We’re having a difficult time that a parent would allow this anguish for 15 days,” said Cymany O’Brien, Castillo’s aunt and guardian. “As a parent, (Kingrey) had a responsibility.”

PORTLAND — A U.S. traveler detained for months in East Timor has been released from prison. Stacey Addison, 41, of Portland was arrested in September shortly after crossing the border into the Southeast Asian nation. The veterinarian was sharing a taxi with a stranger who asked the driver to stop the car so he could pick up a package. Police stopped the vehicle, determined the package contained methamphetamine and took everybody to the station. Addison was released from jail after a few days, but was ordered to remain in East Timor during the investigation. Then, in October, a prosecutor persuaded a court to rescind Addison’s conditional release and she was taken to a women’s prison despite not being charged with a crime. “I am overjoyed to learn of Dr. Stacey Addison’s release from prison,” said U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., who had been working to secure Addison’s freedom. “This is wonderful Christmas news.”Addison’s mother, Bernadette Kero of Klamath Falls, Ore., said in a phone interview she is “tremendously relieved,” and will be even more so when her daughter gets her passport returned. For now, Addison is staying at the guest house of former President Jose Ramos-Horta. Kero said she spoke with Stacey twice on Christmas Eve, and her daughter, though obviously happy, was still in some disbelief over the whole situation.
Approximately half (49%) of managers have never received training on mental health in the workplace, according to research by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).Its survey of 940 UK managers also found that only 30% have received this training in the last year, while a further 20% did so more than a year ago.Ann Francke (pictured), chief executive officer at CMI, said: “Given the vital importance of maintaining mental health at work, the fact that half of managers have never been trained in this area shows we have a very long way to go to make this a part of essential workplace practice.”Around half (51%) of managers have had a member of staff disclose a mental health problem to them; this means that 62% of respondents who have spoken with an employee about mental health issues have either never had any relevant training or received their training over 12 months ago.Senior managers are less likely than their junior counterparts to receive training on managing mental health at work, with 51% of senior respondents never having this training, versus 44% of junior managers.More than half (52%) of managers over the age of 50 have not had training, compared to 42% of respondents aged between 18 and 29, while 52% of male managers have also not been trained in this area. In comparison, 42% of female managers have not been trained in helping employees with their mental health.Francke added: “CMI research shows that mental health at work is an issue that cannot continue to be ignored, as over 50% of managers have had a mental health problem disclosed to them by colleagues.“Line managers play a absolutely critical role in supporting employees’ mental health and wellbeing. Employers are already required by law to provide training on physical health and safety. It’s time the same requirements applied to mental health.”
On Monday 13 May 2019, Bristol-based PR firm Speed signed the Time to Change pledge, marking Mental Health Awareness Week with a commitment to challenge stigma and provide a supportive and open working environment.The pledge, run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, asks employers to implement action plans to support the mental health of their employees.Jo Loughran, interim director at Time to Change, said: “We know it can be hard to talk about mental health, which is why we’re supporting employers to open up; to talk and to listen. Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless, but with the right support, those of us with mental health problems can recover and have equal opportunities in all areas of life. Everyone’s attitude makes a difference and it’s fantastic to see organisations like Speed taking the lead.”In addition to its commitment to the Time to Change pledge, Speed launched a new wellbeing programme, called Balance. This will provide its 50-plus employees with a framework of physical and mental wellbeing support, including mental health first aiders, information resources, training and regular activities.Both the pledge and the new wellbeing initiative were communicated at an all-employee meeting on Monday morning; staff received a handout with an overview of the wellbeing initiative, as well as a PDF with detailed information on the different support structures and benefits being offered.The Balance initiative is based around five pillars: connect, be active, take notice, learn and give.During Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 13 to 17 May 2019, Speed is running various health and wellbeing events, including individual fitness consultations, a lunchtime laughter session with a local comedian and social drinks on Friday.Kelly Pepworth (pictured), managing director of Speed, said: “PR is a fast-paced industry managing both the media and digital world, this is what makes its fun, but also sometimes pressurised. Not all stress is bad, but what we want to achieve is a healthy balance and an environment where people feel they can talk openly about how they are feeling and reach out for support when they need to.“The pledge and new programme are a demonstration of our commitment to a healthy work environment and culture with wellbeing at its heart.”

(WSVN) – A Pennsylvania school teacher vacationing in Mexico died when she fell off a balcony while she was laughing.According to her brother, 50-year-old Sharon Regoli Ciferno was sitting on a deck ledge that doubled as a bench, Fox News reports.“She started laughing very hard and when she put her head back she lost her balance and fell back,” her brother, David Regoli, told PennLive. “She suffered multiple injuries to her body and brain.”Alcohol was not a factor, he said. He blamed Mexico’s building code standards, saying they are not as stringent as in the U.S.“Unfortunately, there was no back on the deck,” Regoli said.The married mother of two was taken to a San Diego hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries last Monday.“This was a tragic accident that has devastated our very close-knit family,” her brother said.
