The 19-year-old has debuted for Roma against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League and recently he was called to the national teamNicolo Zaniolo debuted with Italian Lega Serie A club Roma in a UEFA Champions League match against Real Madrid this season.His good performances have also made him shine and was called to the Italy national team too.And the 19-year-old is very excited about this.Karsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“I expected a lot less to happen than what actually did. I would like to continue on this path. My debut at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid for the Champions League was crazy, I could not describe it,” he told Gianluca Di Marzio.“My legs were trembling, thank goodness De Rossi was there to give me a hand. Once on the pitch, however, I only thought about playing football.”“I did not expect the call-up to the Italian National Team. I was in front of the TV when I found out. I called my father and we went to Coverciano,” he commented.“I hope that in the future I will succeed, I played with champions like Chiellini and Bonucci and I tried to learn as much as I could although I had little time available. Mancini told me that he believes in me very much and that now he will show me how much I’m worth.”
FIGC President Gabriele Gravina has maintained that the referee Paolo Silvio Mazzoleni who officiated the match between Napoli and Inter “could not interrupt” the due to racist abuse.He adds that he perfectly followed procedure and called for a statement which was made over the stadium speaker. It was stated that if racial abuse continues, the game will be temporarily suspended.“Mazzoleni could not interrupt the game. He perfectly followed procedure,” Federation chief Gravina told Rai Sport via Football Italia“Unfortunately, at times there are people who don’t know the procedures correctly.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“The chief of security, in particular Questore Cardona, clearly stated that with five minutes left in the game, he could never have suspended play with the risk of creating a massacre.“Mazzoleni applied the procedure precisely the way it was planned. We will discuss with the Minister for the Interior to see if these procedures can be revised and simplified.“We can make it clearer that for example after three warnings in the stadium, the teams go back into the locker room, with the decision made by the security chief at the stadium.“In any case, there is already a system in place to apply very severe sanctions.”
Georginio Wijnaldum has urged his teammates to fight on despite the blip they suffered at the Etihad Stadium.The Reds unbeaten run came to an end after Man City beat them 2-1 on Thursday night as goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane gave the hosts three points.Firmino’s equaliser wasn’t enough to salvage a point for Klopp’s men but Dutch midfielder Wijnaldum believes the loss will not dent their title aspirations.“I think we did enough to get a point and we could have won it also,” Wijnaldum told Liverpoolfc.com after the final whistle at Etihad Stadium.“We were quite unlucky with the chances but we also could lose it – like we have now. We just have to keep the confidence and try to win the next game.Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“They cleared well and we hit the post. They also had two or three chances so it could have gone either way; we could have won, drawn or lost. At the end, we were unlucky and they won the game.”“We knew before it would be a hard game and we would have to give everything to win the game,” said the Netherlands international.“A few games this season we were lucky we have scored goals, and tonight we were quite unlucky with the chances that we had. That’s football.“Sometimes you have games where you score a lot and score with every chance that you get – and sometimes you don’t. What we have to do now is to keep our confidence and win the next game.”
Ashford: “The majority of the movement on the fire is away from the community of Sterling. It’s heading to the east as it moves to higher elevations in the Chugach National Forest.” The next community Meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 10, at 6:00pm, at the Cooper Landing Elementary School, 19030 Bean Creek Road, Cooper Landing. Jonathan Ashford with the State Division of Forestry: “The community of Cooper Landing has been really impacted by smoke from the fire. We’ve heard from folks that they have concerns and would like updated information on the fire.” The weather pattern will continue hot and dry with high temperatures around 90-degrees through Monday. Later in the week, high temperatures are expected to decrease as clouds and relative humidity increase. Winds have been predominately out of the north but a change to a southerly direction is anticipated. For smoke forecasts from Alaska wildfires, visit UAFSMOKE at http://smoke.alaska.edu. The containment line north of the Homer Electric transmission line is holding well as small areas of interior vegetation burn, further increasing the depth of the fuel break created to protect the community of Sterling and the Sterling Highway. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Hot, dry weather is challenging fire personnel in all areas of the fire. The east flank continues to move upslope and into higher elevations along the mountain ridge line. The fire is estimated at 96,889 with 394 personnel assisting with the fire. Air quality monitoring stations have been set up near Cooper Landing and Seward. Real time reports are available 24-hours a day at http://tools.airfire.org and click on the Monitoring PM2.5. Crews are working to improve the Skyline Trail to create a fuel break along the southeast corner of the fire to prevent fire spread along the highway. Helicopters will continue to utilize water drops to cool areas producing heat north of Upper Jean Lake.
Publishing in Southern California is tough and always has been, Steve Churm says. Churm, the president of Churm Media, a city and regional publisher based in Orange County, remembers a FOLIO: report from 14 years ago. “In 1994 FOLIO: wrote, ‘The streets of Los Angeles would run red with blood if its magazine casualties were made of flesh instead of pulp,’” Churm said at the recent Niche Publishing Conference in Austin, Texas. “It’s more difficult today than it was 14 years ago to make a buck in the magazine industry in Southern California.”Churm should know. Two years ago, he was a $9.5 million company with seven magazines. Two years, two closed magazines and a topline that is $1 million less later, Churm is evaluating a strategy he embarked on to make his company brand centric and not just print centric. Churm, whose company publishes OC Metro, Southland Golf, OC Family and others, was the keynote speaker at the Niche Conference, a relatively new event geared to very small magazines. The event is run by Carl Landau, a publishing entrepreneur known, among other things, for a series of sales-training seminars called Camp Niche Jamboree. This year’s Niche Conference attracted 120 attendees and 17 sponsors. In Steve Churm, who launched his company in 1990, the conference had an engaging, candid keynote. “We embraced the idea that print and online work better together,” he said. “Our own print-centric thinking had gotten in our way.” He embraced that concept even though larger city and regional magazines, perhaps paradoxically, average less than 2 percent of their revenue from online sources, according to FOLIO:’s City and Regional Publishing Survey. To make it work, Churm said, he invested $350,000 to rebuild his Web sites—including an all-new content-management system—and all funded out of cashflow.The result? “We have not seen the payoff,” he said. “Not yet, anyway. We are entrepreneurs, and yes, we are going to fail. But you have to try.”A more promising initiative is the creation of Ripe Orange, an in-house ad agency designed to serve the company’s stable of 2,000 advertisers—many of whom are small and don’t have access to sophisticated creative services, Churm said. In 15 business days, Ripe Orange has booked $40,000 in business, Churm said. Churm offered eight lessons learned in the process of repositioning his company:1. Standalone repurposed content isn’t compelling to anyone. Write and present content for the medium it is intended. 2. Take advantage of being online. There are clever ways to alert readers of other resources.3. Provoke readers, but don’t annoy them online.4. Quality content rules. Provide value and people will come back.5. Every person working on your Web sites should get used to being overworked indefinitely.6. Document, document, document. Programmers and producers are not going to stay with you for long. When they leave, if you haven’t documented, you have a problem.7. Useful is better than cool. Be respectful of readers’ time limitations.8. Fear of failure—you can’t be afraid of making a mistake. “Lee Iacocca said in his book that his regret was that he didn’t fail earlier and more often in his career,” Churm said. “You’ve got to put yourself out there.”
Andrew Harnik/APEnergy Secretary Rick Perry was sworn in Thursday, apparently having come to terms with heading the agency he once wanted to abolish.Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is now the 14th U.S. Secretary of Energy, despite having once pledged to eliminate the Department of Energy.Or at least, he tried to pledge to eliminate the department — including once when he couldn’t think of its name.Perry was confirmed Thursday by the Senate in a 62-37 vote.During his confirmation hearing, Perry said, “My past statements made over five years ago about abolishing the Department of Energy do not reflect my current thinking.”That was not the only thing that Perry appeared to have changed his mind about. As NPR’s Jeff Brady has reported, “At various times, Perry has questioned the role of human activity in climate change. At one campaign event, he accused scientists of manipulating data to continue gaining funding on research.”During his confirmation hearing, though, he said he believed that both natural and man-made activity were contributing to climate change.That hasn’t reassured environmental group 350.org. Executive Director May Boeve said in a statement: “Trump just added one more unqualified fossil fuel shill and climate-denier to his cabinet. As governor, Perry doled out millions to oil corporations while silencing the science that tells us our future depends on keeping fossil fuels in the ground.”Other statements Thursday night were supportive though. The American Wind Energy Association praised Perry’s “leadership on wind energy infrastructure” as governor of Texas.There was plenty of “color,” according to the press pool at the swearing in ceremony. Vice President Pence noted that it was an important day for Texas, “the country,” being Texas Independence Day.Perry mentioned the new Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s arrival at work Thursday on horseback, and joked that Perry would be commuting Friday on a “single-stage rocket… what could go wrong.” Perhaps doubting that the press pool would have a sense of humor, he added that he would, in fact, just “quietly drive over and go to work.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

MAKERS is Oath’s feminist media brand, touting a large collection of video profiles of women. Popular on Variety Verizon’s Oath struck a deal with Roku to distribute live and on-demand content from Yahoo and other media properties on the device maker’s free-to-watch Roku Channel.None of the Oath programming will be exclusively available on the Roku Channel. That will also continue to be available for free on Oath’s owned-and-operated sites and apps. Through the deal, Oath wants to get its ad-supported content in front of Roku’s installed base of users, which was about 22 million as of the end of June 2018.Presented under the “Yahoo” banner on the Roku Channel, the live and VOD content comes from Oath’s Yahoo News, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, HuffPost, RYOT and MAKERS.Oath has been losing steam in recent quarters — and Verizon hopes its video initiatives like the new deal with Roku will help turn things around. Revenue for Oath dropped 6.9% in the third quarter of 2018, to $1.8 billion, with Verizon blaming declines in search and desktop traffic. The telco said it expects sales at Oath, which combined AOL and Yahoo, to be “relatively flat in the near term.”
June 14, 2012 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Entrepreneur: What does an aspiring tech entrepreneur need to be successful?Scoble: Be passionate about your idea to the point of craziness. Unless you’re so passionate about your idea that you’re going to keep doing it until you die, you’re probably not going to develop to full potential.If you talk to venture capitalists, they look for a few things. One, does the entrepreneur have a team behind him or her that can deliver on the business plan? Adoption is another big thing. Is anyone using the product?For me, a tech startup needs to be in an interesting area, what I call “battlefields.” If you show me a Windows XP app, I don’t care if it’s the coolest thing you ever thought of. If you show me the app on an iPad, I’ll probably be more interested. The iPad is the future.Related: Mark Cuban: Outwork and Outlearn Your CompetitionEntrepreneur: What’s the future of social media and tech?Scoble: I think we’re at the beginning of a shift, moving from the conversation age to a more contextual age. Google Glasses, which we’re starting to see prototypes of, informs us what this contextual age means. If I’m walking down the street, they should be able to show me information that I need to know while walking. Not a movie, because I need to walk and navigate. If I start driving a car . . . they should show information about accidents or speed limits. It’s all about context.Entrepreneur: What inspires you professionally?Scoble: I love meeting people who see the world in a new way. Sitting down with Tony Hsieh at Zappos and understanding what customer service is all about. Or with Sergey Brin to find out that he’s working on these glasses and self-driving cars, getting a glimpse at how the world might shift because of what he’s doing at Google.Entrepreneur: How do you stay on top of your game?Scoble: I’m a social media fanatic. At my desk, I have three big screens in front of me on which I watch Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Gmail, Quora, Techmeme, Salesforce Chatter so I know what my co-workers are talking about — you name it. I sit there and it’s like the world comes to me.Related: Guy Kawasaki: No ‘Secret Sauce’ for Tech Success min read Robert Scoble’s finger is on the pulse of technology.
