Chelsea and Liverpool both chasing Ivorian star – report

first_imgChelsea and Liverpool both want Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony, according to The Sun.The player’ agent claims Liverpool have made an approach and there is a 50% chance that Bony – dubbed the new Didier Drogba – will be on the move in January.Meanwhile, Manchester City are keeping a close eye on Raheem Sterling’s contract negotiations at Liverpool, according to the Daily Mail.It is claimed the Harlesden teenager’s advisers, who say he has not actually been made a concrete offer, are becoming increasingly irritated with Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers and feel he is trying to railroad Sterling into signing a new deal.City are said to be monitoring the situation and apparently could consider launching a bid in January if his future is not resolved by then.The Daily Mirror have a similar story, saying ­the Sterling camp were amazed when Rodgers declared that the player should sign a new contract in what could be seen as an attempt to bully him into agreeing terms.And The Sun quote a source as saying: “How can Raheem hurry and sign when there isn’t anything to sign?”This page is regularly updated.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

India vs England, 2nd Test Day 1: India lose openers early on a green top at Lord’s

first_imgIndia’s Shikhar Dhawan leaves the field after being dismissed during the second test cricket match against England at Lord’s cricket ground in London on July 17, 2014. Reuters India lost both openers early to reach 73 for two in their first innings at lunch on the first day of the second cricket Test against England at Lord’s in London on Thursday.Cheteshwar Pujara (11 not out) and Virat Kohli (20 not out) were at the crease when lunch was called after a tough first session on a green track at Lord’s.Winning the toss, England captain Alastair Cook didn’t blink an eyelid before asking India to bat on a surface that was tailor-made to benefit the English bowlers.The ball swung right from the word go troubling the India openers Shikhar Dhawan (7) and Murali Vijay (24). Pacer James Anderson (1/11) and Liam Plunkett (1/20) were the two wicket-takers for the hosts.Anderson, who is staring at a two-match ban for allegedly ‘pushing and abusing’ India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, looked as if he was ready to have his bowling do all the talking.The pace spearhead provided England the first breakthrough with an outstanding delivery that pitched outside leg, forcing Dhawan to play at it and the southpaw nicked it through to third slip, a low catch taken by Gary Ballance.In the next over, Vijay also got a reprieve as he was dropped off Stuart Broad even before he could open his account. Keeper Matt Prior made a valiant dive to his right and got his glove before putting down what was a tough chance.advertisementVijay and Pujara then added 37 runs for the second wicket to stabilise the innings. But just when it looked that Vijay, who struck four fours, was growing in confidence the batsman edged Plunkett to Ballance for his second catch of the morning at third slip.last_img read more

Rep LaFave presses DNR to take every possible step to eliminate latest

first_img18Oct Rep. LaFave presses DNR to take ‘every possible step’ to eliminate latest case of CWD Categories: LaFave News,News Crystal Falls Field Office – Check StationAddress: 1420 Highway US-2 West, Crystal Falls, MIPhone: 906-875-6622More information on chronic wasting disease – including Michigan’s CWD Surveillance and Response Plan, additional information on deer check stations, fact sheets and testing data – is available at Escanaba Customer Service Center – Check StationAddress: 6833 Hwy. 2, 41, and M-35, Gladstone, MIPhone: 906-786-2351 State Rep. Beau LaFave is urging the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to take swift action to stop the spread of  chronic wasting disease (CWD) in the Upper Peninsula after the DNR diagnosed the first incident of the disease in Waucedah Township.“We must do everything we can to protect Michigan’s natural resources for generations to come, and so I have urged the DNR to take every possible step toward eradicating the disease in Waucedah as quickly as possible,” LaFave said. “I also urge all hunters to do their part to contain CWD by bringing their deer in for testing.”Chronic wasting disease is a fatal nervous system disease found in deer, moose and elk. The disease attacks the brain of infected animals, creating small lesions, which result in neurologic symptoms. The disease is always fatal in animals that contract it.According to the DNR, the affected 4-year-old doe was killed on a deer damage shooting permit on a farm in Dickinson County’s Waucedah Township, which is located about four miles from the Michigan-Wisconsin border. The finding was verified by Michigan State University’s Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in East Lansing and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa.Responsible hunting is an important part of containing the spread of CWD. Hunters in the Upper Peninsula can take deer to be checked at the following locations:Norway Field Office – Check StationAddress: 520 W. US-2, Norway, MIPhone: 906-563-9247last_img read more
