Evans obsesses about Red Devils spot.

FOCUS ED Jonny Evans

JONNY Evans has become a football obsessive to make sure he doesnot get left behind in the battle for a firstteam spot at Old Trafford.Since the severity of Rio Ferdinand’s muscular complaints firstbegan to surface in 2008, Evans has gradually edged further up the RedDevils hierarchy.

By last season, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said he regarded Evans as a first-choice member of his side, with Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic his partner depending upon the opponents.

“It becomes an obsession. I like to spend time with my wife. Yet single-mindedness and dedication are traits to be admired in an era when so many are prepared to settle for less than their best because the trappings of stardom arrived.

Yet, with Phil Jones also earmarked for a central defensive slot and Chris Smalling good enough to play for England in that position, Evans accepts he can take nothing for granted.

CAPTION(S): . As soon as I have finished training I try and relax. “My focus has been solely about football. But I have a routine which I have worked hard at and which works for me.”

The Northern Ireland international outlined the work that has to be done to remain in contention at Old Trafford.

“For me, the last couple of years has been about learning how to live right off the pitch,” he said. When I wake up in the morning it is the first thing I think about.

Evans recoils slightly when it is mentioned such focus is similar to that of former teammate Gary Neville. I get into training earlier and go to the gym.

“I take time and think about how I am going to improve.

“The way I look at it is if I didn’t do that stuff I might not still be at Manchester United,” he said.

“I understand there is a fine line. I get up two hours earlier than I used to. I don’t overkill it

Office Depot Apologizes to Woman Over Anti-Abortion Fliers

Frank Pavone, national director of the anti-abortion group Priest for Life. and decries “the evil that has been exposed in Planned Parenthood and in the entire abortion industry.”

“We sincerely apologize to Ms. Office Depot Apologizes to Woman Over Anti-Abortion Fliers – ABC News

The CEO of Office Depot apologized Friday to a suburban Chicago woman who said the company discriminated against her religious beliefs when its employees told her that making copies of an anti-abortion prayer violated company policy.

Maria Goldstein, who is Roman Catholic, asked the Office Depot in Schaumburg last month to make 500 copies of “A Prayer for Planned Parenthood.”

The prayer was composed by the Rev. “We invite her to return to Office Depot if she still wishes to print the flier.”

Office Depot prohibits “the copying of any type of material that advocates any form of racial or religious discrimination or the persecution of certain groups of people,” as well as copyrighted material, company spokeswoman Karen Denning told the Tribune. “The conversion of the staff, employees, everybody who is part of this at Planned Parenthood. Bring conversion to all who do this, and enlightenment to all who advocate it.”

The prayer also includes statistics about abortion in the U.S. (Maria) Goldstein for her experience and our initial reaction was not at all related to her religious beliefs,” Office Depot Chairman and CEO Roland Smith, said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reports ( http://trib.in/1Kb5StR ). The flier that Goldstein wanted to copy “contained material that advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights,” she said.

But the handout is part of a weeklong prayer and fasting campaign that aims to change opinions on abortion, according to Goldstein.

“The intention of the prayer is to ask for conversion,” she said. But Goldstein said that would have been an inconvenience, so she went to another shop to run her copies.

“I feel discriminated against,” Goldstein said.

Thomas Olp, a lawyer for the Chicago-based Thomas More Society, a public interest law group that represents Goldstein, sent a letter Thursday to Smith, asking the company to reconsider its policy and fill Goldstein’s copy order.

Goldstein told the Tribune on Friday that she hadn’t had time to process the company’s latest response.

“I need to take a step back and pray about it,” she said.

Office Depot is based in Boca Raton, Florida.

. It means they will recognize life has dignity and that it is valuable and not a commodity to be bought and sold.”

Goldstein, of Rolling Meadows, was invited to use the use the self-serve copy machines at Office Depot, Denning said. It calls on God to “Bring an end to the killing of children in the womb, and bring an end to the sale of their body parts

‘I Saw the Light’ Director on Channeling Hank Williams’ Attitude

So when I started working on the film, (like Hank, I thought) ‘This is the way I’m gonna do it and if you don’t like it, go screw yourself!’”

He had a couple of things going for him when he started working on the film. Perhaps “I Saw the Light” will give us a profound understanding of why.

Sony Classics releases the film, starring Tom Hiddleston as the iconic country star, on Nov. A few years later he started working on a screenplay about Williams, one that would give the audience a real feel for this troubled singer.

“I tried to show his attitude,” Abraham said. He felt they gave him maximum support and allowed him to operate without creative interference to work on a project he loved.

Abraham has a couple of decades of Hollywood film producing experience under his belt, but is still new the directing game. 1, 1953, in the back seat of a Cadillac. First, he had Troy Tomlinson, president of Sony/ATV Music, the company that publishes Williams’ catalog of songs. Still, the Hollywood veteran grew up in Louisville, Ky., and listened to plenty of country music over the years.

Abraham’s primary source for the screenplay was “Hank Williams: The Biography,” by Colin Escott with George Merritt and William Macewen. For Tomlinson, the life of Williams was a key part of his company’s — and his — institutional memory.

“After I wrote the screenplay I gave it to Troy to read and he was captivated with it,” Abraham said.”With his backing and support, I moved forward.”

“I Saw the Light” made its world premiere Friday at the Toronto Film Festival, 50 years after “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” the first major film release on the life and death of country star Hank Williams, and almost anyone who cares about country music, the life and legacy of Williams is keenly interested to see if the film’s writer-director, Marc Abraham, succeeded in capturing the passion that made Williams the great talent and tragic figure whose songs and records continue to move us today.

Also, he said, “I was lucky. That book, published in 1994, is thought by many to be the best of the Williams biographies, and Abraham felt confident that it would not lead him astray.

I Saw the Light Director on Channeling Hank Williams Attitude | Variety

Although those conversations did not lead anywhere, Williams was stuck in Abraham’s mind. “I mean, he was a recalcitrant guy. I put the movie together with independent financing, Bron Studios in Vancouver, and Ratpac Entertainment in L.A.”

Every real country fan knows Hank Williams died Jan. 27.

“About seven or eight years ago, some people in Nashville came to me for advice about how to get a movie going about Hank, and the more I thought about it, the more I thought, ‘Why am I trying to figure it out?’ ” he recalled.. Before Sony, Tomlinson had worked for Acuff-Rose, the publisher that had signed Williams as a writer back in the mid-1940s

In praise of Pedro Villarreal, the Reds’ unsung Garbage Man

A week and a half later on Aug. Vote for Pedro!

Consider the situation Villarreal walked intoon Aug. 26: David Holmberg was lit up by the Dodgers like an evergreen conifer on Christmas, giving up seven runs and six hits over 3.2 innings. the White Sox (0.2 innings, four hits, three runs), June 28 against the Mets (2.2 innings, four hits, four runs), and Aug. In any case, in a second straight lost season for the Reds, Villarreals success as the Reds Garbage Man is a needed positive story.

However, Villarreal does have his limitations. When one considers that a very smallamount of pro ball players advance to the major leagues, and that an even smaller amount of those chosen few locate something resembling stability in the bigs, I can proclaim with utmost confidence that in the grand scheme of the entire pro baseball universe, Pedro Villarreal is agood baseball player.

Or how about after Keyvius Sampson made a mess of things (3.1 innings, nine hits, four runs) on Aug. 2, Villarreal held the Pirates without a hit over three frames.

On the surface, labeling Pedro Villarreal a garbage man is patently unfair. 29 in Milwaukee (0.2 innings, four hits, two runs).

Then there is the case of Villarreal tossing 4.1 inningsof two-hit, no-run ball in the second game of a doubleheader on July 22 vs. After Yasiel Puig parked a two-run shot off Holmberg with two outs in the fourth inning, Villarreal entered. Sure, there have been some rough outings for Villarreal, like May 9 in Chicago vs. (Villarreal pitched later that day.)Perhaps Villarreal has been hardened by being recalled/sent down to Triple-A Louisville 10 times since March 30 (and on 19 occasions since the start of the 2013 season). the Cubs. 19, Villarreal stepped in with 2.2 scoreless frames opposite the Royals, an outing that featured Villarreals high-wire escape of a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the fourth inning without surrendering a run.

But in 2015, Villarreal has been an undeniable asset to the Reds which is especially refreshing when you consider thatVillarreals spring training was a bit undoneafter he lost the nail on his right ring finger aftergetting the finger caught between a bullpen door and bullpen pole. Villarreal, after all, is a professional baseball player with 65.1 innings pitched in the best baseball league in the world. For his career, Villarreals fastball averages 92.1 mph which happens to be the exact speed of the average major-league fastball in 2015 and, other than his slider, Villarreals secondary offerings are below ordinary.Heck, when compared to other National League pitchers,Villarreals 2015 numbers are justthat: ordinary.

VillarrealNL AverageStrikeouts per 9 innings4.77.8Walks per 9 innings2.32.9ERA+113101FIP4.523.88

But you know what, Villarreal has embraced a job that few others would: being the Reds Garbage Man. He retired Adrian Gonzalez to end the frame, and proceeded to deliver 3.1 innings of scoreless baseball, allowing the Reds to mount a mini-comeback and creep to within 6-3 before falling 7-4.. So, consider this column a Vote for Pedro and a pat on the back forembracing a role that is the opposite of glamorous.

How about when Villarreal garnered his first career win on June 25 by pitching the final two inningsof a 13-inning victory in Pittsburgh? Remember whenVillarreal was thrust into a June 15 contest in Detroit after Jon Moscot dislocated his shoulder? Villarreal allowed one hit and an unearned run over 3.1 innings

The English Premier League No Longer Has a Dominant Team

Liverpool ruled the 70s and the 80s, while Manchester United has ruled from the 90s until now. Since 1990, the outfit has never won the domestic title; but in 2005, they won the UEFA champions league fifth time by beating AC Milan against the odds. Manchester United and Liverpool have also come under American owners in the last few years. Alex Ferguson was both shrewd and an inspirational manager; so is Jose Mourinho.

The Era of Manchester United

The year 1992 saw the top teams break away from the football league to form the Premier league, which gave them more TV rights. The other competitors have been in the shadow of United in this era. Chelsea and Arsenal have won thrice, and Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers once each.

Having a galaxy of players may not always guarantee victory, but many times, it may do. No doubt, other teams have occasionally grabbed the honors in between. It used to be very hard to beat them at Old Trafford but that seems to have changed. The club was then a European soccer superpower. Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool are all in a position to be crowned champions. The team has had superstars in that period: notably, Eric Cantona, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, and Robin Van Persie.

A coach who has a strong personality and shrewdness is also vital to the success of a club. Time will prove whether a certain team emerges as the alpha male.

Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 after taking his 13th PL title; and former Everton manager David Moyes took over.

Since the 1970s, two teams have dominated the English top tier soccer competition. Manchester United won the first title. Buying of players is one of the main reasons the balance of English club power is changing. Four teams have won it among themselves the eight times that Manchester United did not win. Kenny Dalglish was the star of the 80s. The top teams seem to have equal strength, unlike Germany where Bayern Munich reigns or Spain where Real Madrid and Barcelona rule alternately.. No doubt, manager Moyes is trying to rebuild the outfit.

The last few years have seen wealthy individuals and groups buy English clubs, which has enabled them to buy world-class foreign players. Since then, they have won a further 12 titles. The club has won 18 first division titles, and most came from this era. This term, they have lost even to West Bromwich Albion at home. Instead, a number of teams that are equal seem to be set to challenge for honors going forward. However, the club has lately experienced resurgence and is a genuine title contender.

The Era of Liverpool

Equal Contenders

As things stand now, there is no dominant club in the English League; rather a number of teams stand equal chance of taking the title. In 1998, the club won the famous treble- the PL, FA, and UEFA Champions League. Manchester united has taken a dip in form that the league has not known for years. The club has won an amazing 13 titles since then. Sheikh Mansour bought Manchester City, and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea. Manchester United and Tottenham are farther back, with the only realistic hope being Europa League places.

When Alex Ferguson arrived at Man United from Aberdeen in 1986, his expressed desire was to knock Liverpool off the top of English soccer.

Conclusion

The English Premier League appears to have entered an era where no outstanding club reigns. During the Ferguson years, the side also won five FA cups. He spent a few years revamping United, and in 1991 won the UEFA cup winners cup and the UEFA super cup. A side like Manchester City has assembled some of the best players in the world, owing to the purchasing power at their disposal. Right now, the English Premier League seems to have entered a period where there is no dominant side. As things are, the club is in real danger of missing a chance of 2014/15 UEFA Champions League. The year 1992 saw them win the inaugural Premier League title. During this period, they also won four European club honors, besides other honors. The year 2008 saw them win UEFA champions league against Chelsea. Arsenal itself has had an American majority shareholder since 2011.

Liverpool dominated the domestic scene from 1975 to 1990

“Today’s public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can’t read them either.” – Gore Vidal. Can you think of examples of this rule?

As to Obama being a lousy speaker I’m very glad you added that attempted smear, as it clearly demonstrates how warped your hatred has made you.

Time and Huffington Post are your sources? Give me a f***ing break. He no longer has time to do it himself, as he did for the 2004 convention speech that catapulted him onto a national stage, but he is still heavily involved, far more so than most politicians. Typical.

…and write books.

bet he had some “help” with that

No, Obama wrote his two books himself, and wrote his own speeches as well back when he had the luxury of time to do so.

Curious, if he is such a great writer, why can’t we read his college papers?

Equally, either he and Bill Ayers have an identical writing style or SOMEONE ghost wrote Audacity.. Not a highly credible source. As I said, unless you have your head stuck in some liberal sandbox.

Ha! You start off with garbage you dig out of Drudge and the rabid right blogs, then have the guts to complain about Time Magazine as a source? Get real, con man.

OK Obama wrote his own books but the first book I see is a series of quotes by Jeramiah Wright,,An America hater,,good job Jim.

Carry on with the ad hominems when you can’t win with facts. But who does have their thesis from 25 years ago? That’s some sort of horrible indictment? A vast conspiracy? Give me a f***ing break!

As to the Bill Ayers smear, here’s the story behind where that absurd conspiracy theory came from. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/07/ayers-obama-book-conspira_n_312954.html

Here’s where the misconception came from that Axelrod writes Obama’s speeches. It has never been a secret that Axelrod wrote all of his speeches during the campaign unless your head is burried in a liberal sandbox.

We hope someone did help did help him write that drivel because if he came up with that all by himself, we are in far more trouble than I originally thought.

I can’t find anything about Obama’s Thesis papers anywhere but on far right hate speech blogs

Liverpool, Norwich City, Aston Villa and the worst teams to reach and win major finals

A Peter Withe goal gave them a narrow, yet glorious win in the Rotterdam showpiece, belying their mediocre mid-table placing at home.

When Arsenal faced Birmingham City in the 2011 League Cup final, many people felt it was a forgone conclusion that they would end their six-year trophy drought and were shocked when Blues emerged with the silverware. The Reds found their form in the knockout stages, just edging Chelsea 1-0 over two legs of the semi final, despite finishing 37 points behind the Blues in the Premier League. In 1969, Arsenal had gone 16 years without winning a trophy and were even bigger favourites to lift the cup, facing Third Division Swindon Town in the final. After drawing level, they somehow held on for a penalty shoot-out victory against all the odds, but were only able to defend their trophy after UEFA agreed to let them join the next season’s preliminary stages, having failed to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

In 2011 Leeds Rhinos became the first rugby league team to finish fifth in Super League’s regular season, then go on to be crowned Grand Final winners. The only thing they were favourites for was to finish bottom of a tough group containing hosts Portugal, Spain (ranked third in the world) and Russia (two places above Greece at 31). Villa had edged past Icelandic minnows Valur in the first round, then Eastern European opposition Dynamo Berlin on away goals, before knocking out Dynamo Kiev and squeaking past Anderlecht in the semi final with a single strike from Tony Morley early in the first leg. Under the management of German Otto Rehhagel, the Greek’s dour defensive tactics were enough to see off Czech Republic en route to a final rematch with hosts Portugal. The Greeks proceeded to stun the rest of Europe by beating hosts Portugal in the opening game and then drawing against Spain. St Helens lay in wait for the Rhinos, as the two went head-to-head in a Grand Final for the fourth time in five seasons. In the final Rafa Benitez’s team were taken apart by AC Milan, trailing 3-0 at half-time, before pulling off one of the all-time great comebacks, scoring three in just six second half minutes. Having scraped past Austrian side Grazer AK, losing the second leg 1-0 at Anfield for a narrow 2-1 aggregate win, the Reds squeezed through on goal difference in the group stages after losing twice, away to Monaco and Olympiacos. Like the previous three meetings, Leeds emerged triumphant, while the two best teams from the regular season, Warrington and Wigan, could only look on in envy.

LEEDS RHINOS, 2011 SUPER LEAGUE WINNERS

GREECE, EURO 2004 WINNERS

Norwich CITY, 1985 LEAGUE CUP WINNERS

Not all champion teams look like odds on winners, however, as talkSPORT recalls

Greece started the European Championships in 2004 as 150/1 rank outsiders to win their first ever major competition. Again, the Greeks kept a clean sheet to stun the Portuguese with a 1-0 win, confounding once again their status as 13th seeds in a 16-team tournament.

Swindon Town, 1969 LEAGUE CUP WINNERS

Having surprised everyone by winning the First Division title in 1981, Aston Villa won the European Cup at the first attempt, sneaking past favourites Bayern Munich in the final. LIVERPOOL, 2005 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNERS

After being thrashed by New Zealand and losing to Tonga in the pool stages, nearly blowing a 16-point lead against a poor England team, then only just crawling over the line against a 14-man Wales side in the semi final, France have been labelled as the worst team to reach a Rugby World Cup final.

Despite winning one of the most dramatic finals in football history, Liverpool were arguably the worst team to be crowned European champions. Mind you, at least they had some silverware to console them, unlike the team they beat to lift the cup losing finalists Sunderland were also relegated from the top flight that season.. In the semis Leeds faced regular season champions Warrington, who had finished 13 points clear of them, but were powerless to stop the Rhinos edging a tight clash 26-24. Defeat to Russia was compensated by qualification for the last eight, in which Greece managed to defeat the defending champions and tournament favourites in a shock 1-0 win. They only qualified for the tournament after finishing fourth in the Premier League the previous season, 30 points behind champions Arsenal and 15 behind third-placed Man United (by contrast, Liverpool were 15 points above 14th place). In doing so, Villa became the worst team to win a European Cup when taking into account where they finished domestically, having ended that year’s First Division season in 11th place, having lost as many games (15) as they won. While the Robins finished second in Division Three that season, Arsenal were going great guns near the top of Division One and were stunned to lose 3-1 in extra time to the lowest-placed team to win the League Cup.

ASTON Villa, 1982 EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS

The last team to achieve the unwanted distinction of winning a major trophy and being relegated from the top flight before Birmingham City (2011 Carling Cup/Premier League relegation) was Norwich City, who followed up their 1985 League Cup success at Wembley by being relegated from the old First Division. After losing 11 of their 27 regular season games, the Rhinos were forced to enter the play offs at the qualifying and elimination round,beating Hull FC to earn a place in the preliminary play off, where they overcame a Huddersfield team, that had finished a place above them

Ruben Amaro Jr. ousted as Phillies general manager

With Gillick and MacPhail, he oversaw the trades of Cole Hamels, Jonathan Papelbon, Ben Revere and Chase Utley. They’re a factor, as I said earlier… “If the fans didn’t buy tickets and the fans didn’t watch TV, no one in this room at this moment would have a job. The team said it will immediately begin the search for Amaro’s permanent replacement. “All of us in this room really exist because of fans,” he told reporters. Potential candidates in that mold include Los Angeles Angels assistant GM Matt Klentak, who was MacPhail’s director of baseball operations in Baltimore, and Kansas City Royals assistant GM J.J. ousted as Phillies general manager

The winds of change continued to sweep through the Phillies on Thursday afternoon as the team announced it will not renew the contract of general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

“The conclusion I reached was that we needed a fresh perspective in the baseball operations department,” Andy MacPhail said at a press conference Thursday afternoon. “When I came in here, saw the record, saw that first four-game series against Milwaukee, I didn’t think this one was going to be as hard as it turned out to be. when you make a decision of this magnitude, you have to make it for a host of reasons, and there’s a lot of thought that goes into it, a lot of factors that have to be balanced and weighed, and that’s what Andy did… That was the basis for my decision.”

MacPhail, 62, was introduced as the Phillies next president on June 29. “As a group, we have tremendous respect for Ruben, who has been a significant contributor to this organization. “I think in fairness, it would be difficult to make the case that Ruben Amaro did not do good work while I was here. “I was certainly aware of them, and I was certainly unhappy with them, and I conveyed that directly to Ruben. That said… The new GM will be handpicked by MacPhail, who will succeed Pat Gillick as team president after this season.

MacPhail spoke on the dynamic that will be in place between himself and his GM of the future at this afternoon’s press conference: . He has spent the months since evaluating all facets of the organization to discern which way to best move forward. Picollo, a 44-year-old Cherry Hill native.

Amaro, 50, assumed the general manager’s role just days after the team won the 2008 World Series. I think this organization is going to bare the fruits of his labors for years to come based on what he did on that day. I think he really did. 2. We were certainly aware of the fans’ feeling, absolutely.”

“Ownership has made it clear… as general manager the right move for the Phillies?

“The Phillies ownership fully supports Andy’s decision not to extend Ruben Amaro’s contract,” Phillies part-owner John Middleton said. I have a responsibility to the franchise, the fans, ownership to do what I think is best and get this thing back to where it was as quickly as I can and efficiently as I can. there’s a lot of factors you have to consider, and that’s certainly part of the fan weight… But if I’m entrusted to create a baseball operations department that is going to compete and achieve success and sustain success over a long period of time, I felt that a change was required.”

Assistant general manager Scott Proefrock will serve as interim GM, effective immediately. I have to create a culture where they have fairly good autonomy. He previously worked for MacPhail in Baltimore as director of baseball administration.

“I have all the trust in the world in him,” MacPhail said of Proefrock.
