Newcastle could have come away with at least a point, having been on the front foot for much of the second half.LEICESTER CITY 0AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0GOALS: NONE.Leicester wasted the chance to return to the top of the Barclays Premier League after Riyad Mahrez had a second-half penalty saved against 10-man AFC Bournemouth. Moments after Bournemouth captain Simon Francis was sent off for denying Jamie Vardy a goal-scoring chance, Artur Boruc denied Mahrez with a two-handed save.MANCHESTER UNITED 2SWANSEA CITY 1GOALS: UNITED: MARTIAL 47; ROONEY 77. SWANSEA: SIGURDSSON 70.Wayne Rooney’s brilliant winner beat Swansea as Manchester United ended a run of eight games without a win.The goal ensures that Rooney is now second place on the all-time Barclays Premier League goal-scoring lists on 188, 72 behind Alan Shearer. After a dour first half, Martial headed United in front, before Gylfi Sigurdsson’s glancing effort set nerves on edge at Old Trafford.Manchester United move up to fifth, two points behind Tottenham.NORWICH CITY 1SOUTHAMPTON 0GOAL: NORWICH: TETTEY 76.Alex Tettey’s second-half goal gave Norwich a hard-fought win over 10-man Southampton at Carrow Road.

VILLA: GIL 63.Sunderland boosted their Barclays Premier League survival hopes as they ended a run of five straight defeats with a win over bottom-side Aston Villa. The hosts took the lead against the run of play when Patrick van Aanholt’s low 20-yard shot deflected wickedly off Micah Richards and into the net. A brilliant acrobatic volley from Carles Gil levelled after the break, before Jermain Defoe’s low strike. Defoe added a late third, leaving Villa with no wins in 19 league matches.WATFORD 1MANCHESTER CITY 2GOALS: WATFORD: KOLAROV OG 55. CITY: TOURE 82; AG¸ERO 84.+Late goals from Yaya TourÈ and Sergio Ag¸ero rescued Manchester City as they came from behind to beat Watford in an entertaining finale. Watford went ahead after the break when Aleksandar Kolarov headed Ben Watson’s corner beyond Joe Hart, who had the situation covered, for an own goal. With defeat looming, TourÈ side-foot volleyed Kolarov’s corner into the near post to level. And Ag¸ero headed Bacary Sagna’s fine cross home to secure a rare away win.WEST BROMWICH ALBION 2STOKE CITY 1GOALS: WBA: SESSEGNON 60; EVANS 90.

Almost immediately, the visitors’ Geoff Cameron was sent off for striking Claudio Yacob, before Evans tapped home after a goalmouth scramble.WEST HAM UNITED 2LIVERPOOL 0GOALS: WEST HAM: ANTONIO 10; CARROLL 55.Andy Carroll scored against his former club as West Ham leapfrogged Liverpool in the table thanks to a first league double over the Reds for 52 years. Michail Antonio beat Nathaniel Clyne to Enner Valencia’s early cross to net the Premier League’s first goal of 2016. Liverpool midfielder Emre Can was denied by the bar, but Jurgen Klopp’s side were off the pace throughout. Carroll sealed the points after meeting Mark Noble’s cross.SUN, JAN 3CRYSTAL PALACE 0CHELSEA 3GOALS: CHELSEA: OSCAR 29; WILLIAN 60; COSTA 66.Guus Hiddink maintained his unbeaten record since taking over from sacked Chelsea boss JosÈ Mourinho as his side extended their unbeaten run to four with an impressive dismantling of high-riding Crystal Palace. Oscar gave the Blues the lead when he latched onto Diego Costa’s pass.

Scrunchie Hair Extension Curly Up Do In Our Famous Ash Blonde Mix – Very nice either for wedding or formal

first_img Pretty hair extension adding fullness. I have very thin hair so does not stay in that well. I’ve recently changed my hair colour from blonde to ash blonde so this was a bit of a minefield with matching the colour. How lucky was i, first order and it’s a brilliant colour match to my own hair. Be warned though, i had a card in mine that said due to hygiene issues, these cannot be returned. The scrunchie ‘hair’ length is good, however i would have liked it to be a little more bulky and a little curlier like my older ones. The stretch on the elastic could also do with being a little more stretchy so that it can be easily wrapped around my own hair 2-3 times. I have thick hair and struggled at first with being wrapped twice, wrapping once was too loose. The 4* rather than 5* rating is as a result of the elastic stretch and the bulk issue however, i’ll be buying some more once i’ve gotten used to using it and my new colour.

U.S. Special 301 Report criticizes Europe’s targeting of U.S. dairy exports

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Trade Representative’s Office recently denounced Europe’s anti-trade agenda against common-name food products and pursuing avenues to preserve U.S. export access rights.The U.S. Special 301 Report, issued last week by USTR, categorically rejects EU policies that seek to intentionally disadvantage U.S. suppliers in global markets by blocking their ability to use common names such as fontina, gorgonzola, asiago and feta cheeses.“The EU pressures trading partners to prevent all producers, other than in certain EU regions, from using certain product names,” said the report. “This is despite the fact that these terms are the common names for products and produced in countries around the world.”Europe’s actions infringe on the rights of U.S. producers and imposes unwarranted market barriers to U.S. goods, according to the USTR.“Europe has disadvantaged the U.S. dairy industry for too long by abusing geographical indications (GI) policies,” said Tom Vilsack, president and CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council. “We face unfair barriers around the world because of Europe. USTR should be commended for recognizing the problem, and we look forward to working with them to rectify it.”Vilsack urged the USTR to prioritize securing binding commitments from America’s current trading partners to prevent future GI restrictions. The market access preservation commitments secured with Mexico as part of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, he said, provide a positive precedent to build upon.Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation, also urged the Administration to take into account the lopsided dairy trade imbalance between the United States and Europe in formulating policies to tackle the EU’s predatory attacks on U.S. dairy exports.Europe sent $1.8 billion in dairy goods to the U.S. market in 2018 but only imported $145 million of U.S. products, even though America is a major dairy supplier to the rest of the world.“Trade is supposed to be a two-way street,” Mulhern said. “America’s struggling U.S. dairy producers deserve a lot better than the current one-way trade relationship with the European Union whereby they sell us a billion dollars of cheese each year while erecting walls to our ability to compete head to head with them overseas.”last_img read more

Nikon Releases Their First Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

first_imgSo naturally, like any camera or lens release, be on the lookout for review videos and roundups to see if this looks like something you’d be interested in. Nikon has just unveiled its long-rumored first foray into the mirrorless camera game with the brand-new Z7 and Z6 models.All images via Nikon.Built the same way as Sony’s A-series mirrorless cameras, Nikon’s answer is a similar offering in the field of mirrorless cameras with minimal feature changes — but including a massive sensor with a few added benefits sure to make waves in the filmmaking community. For the upcoming Z7 ($3,399.95) — September 24th, 2018 release — we’ll see a 45.7 megapixel sensor, 493 focus points, and max 25600 ISO. The second model, Z6 ($1,999.95), will release sometime in November with a 24.5 mega-pixel sensor, 273 focus points, and a 51200 max ISO. Let’s take a look at some of the other features of these new cameras.Not only did Nikon announce the two new cameras, they also announced the new Z-mount lens system. The camera will feature a 24-70mm f/4 kit lens that by itself will cost about $999. A 35mm f/1.8 will also be available on its own for around $845.95, as well as a much cheaper 50mm f/1.8, which will release in the fall. So, if you’re wondering what to do with all of your F-mount lenses, Nikon will release a FTZ adapter for $250 that will support autofocus and auto exposure. This is a huge plus for anybody who doesn’t want to fork over cash for the new native lens lineup.Z7 SpecsThe autofocus system with the Z7 is improved due to the stepping motor in the new lenses that allows smoother and quieter autofocus while you record. Shooting 4K will be similar to the Sony A7R III, with the image cropped to an APS-C size. The Z7 can now record uncompressed video to an external recorder at a 10-bit 422 file unlike the previous 8-bit (though it records 8 bit internally). On top of that, you can now use the log profile, N-log. There’s also a view assist to let you see the correction while you shoot. Also, apparently the camera is much lighter than it looks. Here are the rest of the specs:ISO – 64 – 25,600Total Pixels: 46.89  millionXQD memory cards4K video up to 30p1080p video recording up to 120p5 axis in-camera stabilization493 (single-point AF)30 min max recording timeWeight: 20.7oz. (585g)last_img read more

BC set to introduce pot laws but years of fine tuning likely

first_imgVICTORIA – Incoming marijuana legislation heralds momentous change for the approach to pot, but British Columbia Premier John Horgan questions if everyone will buy into the new legal system this summer.Legislation regulating recreational marijuana in B.C. is expected to be introduced Thursday. The province is one of the last in Canada to table its marijuana rules as the country adapts to legalized pot.Horgan said he expects the country to go through an extensive marijuana learning curve that will see some embracing the ability to purchase pot legally at private or government stores while others may stick to illegal suppliers.“This is a massive change in how the people of B.C. and the people of Canada, in this case, interact with what has been to this point in time a controlled substance,” said Horgan.He said he expects the government will have to amend and modify its regulations as people get used to the new legal marijuana market.Horgan said he’s curious to see if people accept the new regulations and buy from government-sanctioned suppliers or if they continue to seek out local dealers, making a reference to a fictional character who sells pot named Betty.He said some people may say “I’d prefer to support Betty rather than Shoppers Drug Mart or the dispensary X or Y. There are going to be people who hold fast to their traditional ways.”Solicitor General Mike Farnworth said the province’s legislation will not be set in stone.“This is not something that is going to end with the introduction and passage of legislation, but rather is going to be an ongoing evolutionary issue for quite some time to come,” he said.Farnworth said the marijuana regulations will require periods of fine tuning.The B.C. government has already announced that marijuana sales will be allowed through both public and private stores to buyers who are at least 19 years old. Retailers will be prohibited from selling marijuana in stores that also sell alcohol and cigarettes.Farnworth said the legislation in B.C. will not include a definitive pricing policy.last_img read more

Stocks sink again as job gains send bond yields higher

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – U.S. stock and bond prices fell again Friday after the Labor Department said the economy continues to add jobs at a strong pace, and investors worried about a three-day surge in yields.The Department of Labor said employers added significantly more jobs in July and August than it previously thought, which made up for a slightly disappointing gain in September. That was another sign economic growth is likely to continue.While that’s usually good news for stocks, the market stumbled this week as investors sold government bonds at a rapid pace. That pushed yields to their highest levels in more than seven years, a sign that investors are unsure how high and fast interest rates will rise.Kate Nixon, the chief investment strategist for Northern Trust Wealth Management, said the decline in stock and bond prices started with comments by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday.In a moderated discussion, Powell expressed confidence in the economy and said rising interest rates are a “long way” from holding back growth. Nixon said that means the Fed is intent on raising rates further, and investors aren’t sure when it intends to stop.“The Fed is clearly no longer in the business of being accommodative and now the burden of proof is on the data to prove them wrong,” she said. Until last month, the Fed had described its policies as “accommodative,” or encouraging faster growth, since the Great Recession.The S&P 500 index lost 16.04 points, or 0.6 per cent, to 2,885.57. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped 180.43 points, or 0.7 per cent, to 26,447.05.Technology and internet companies and smaller, more U.S.-focused companies continued to suffer steep losses. The Nasdaq composite skidded 91.06 points, or 1.2 per cent, to 7,788.45. The Russell 2000 index lost 14.80 points, or 0.9 per cent, to 1,632.11.The Nasdaq dropped 3.2 per cent this week and the Russell tumbled 3.8 per cent. That was both indexes worst weekly loss in more than six months. The Russell index finished at its lowest level since late May.The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped to 3.23 per cent, its highest since May 2011, from 3.19 per cent.“It’s so unusual to see these kinds of dramatic moves in the U.S. Treasury market without there being some kind of Big Bang event,” said Nixon, of Northern Trust. “We haven’t seen anything like it since the (2016 presidential) election.”While technology companies and retailers have been the biggest gainers on the S&P this year, they took steep losses this week. Banks and industrial and energy companies, which have struggled for most of 2018, changed place and finished with strong gains.Among technology companies, chipmaker Nvidia lost 3.4 per cent to $269.86 and Apple slipped 1.6 per cent to $224.29. Among internet and communications companies, Netflix slumped 3.4 per cent to $351.35. Retailers also declined and Amazon gave up 1 per cent to $1,889.65.Several major banks will report their third-quarter results late next week as the next round of company earnings begins.Tesla stock fell 7.1 per cent to $261.95 to end a particularly wild week for the electric car maker. Thursday evening, CEO Elon Musk taunted the Securities and Exchange Commission on Twitter just days after he agreed to settle an SEC lawsuit triggered by a tweet he sent in August.As part of that settlement, Musk agreed to step down as chairman and submit to oversight when he’s communicating company news. His criticisms of the SEC don’t appear to be company news, but they may have worried investors who hoped his feed would be a little more boring from now on.According to media reports, financier David Einhorn also criticized Tesla, comparing it to Lehman Brothers, which went bankrupt during the financial crisis. Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Musk and Tesla are also paying $20 million each to end the lawsuit over his false tweet that he had secured funding to take Tesla private.Wholesale club operator Costco gave up 5.6 per cent to $218.82 after it said it discovered technology problems related to its financial reporting processes. Costco said it hasn’t found any mistakes in its earnings reports so far.European stocks fell for the second day in a row. Germany’s DAX lost 1.1 per cent and the CAC 40 in France dropped 1 per cent. Britain’s FTSE 100 fell 1.3 per cent. Bond prices in all three countries fell again sending yields higher.Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 fell 0.8 per cent and the Kospi in South Korea dropped 0.3 per cent. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 0.2 per cent.Benchmark U.S. crude was little changed at $74.34 a barrel in New York and Brent crude, the standard for international oil futures, fell 0.5 per cent to $84.16 a barrel in London.Wholesale gasoline slipped 0.7 per cent to $2.09 a gallon. Heating oil dipped 0.3 per cent to $2.39 a gallon. Natural gas fell 0.7 per cent to $3.14 per 1,000 cubic feet.Gold rose 0.3 per cent to $1,205.60 an ounce. Silver added 0.4 per cent to $14.65 an ounce. Copper fell 0.5 per cent to $2.76 a pound.The dollar slipped to 113.73 yen from 113.86 yen. The euro rose to $1.1525 from $1.1515.____AP Markets Writer Marley Jay can be reached at http://twitter.com/MarleyJayAP His work can be found at https://apnews.com/search/marley%20jaylast_img read more
