Jakarta, Aug 18 (AP) Japan is shooting for a record 30 gold medals when they host the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and the Asian Games are the proving ground.It’s a lofty goal, although home nations usually get a medal-winning bounce.Japan has never won more than 16 gold at an Olympics that was in Tokyo in 1964 and in 2004 in Athens and it managed 12 in Rio de Janeiro two years ago.China is sure to top the medal standings at the Asian Games which opened Saturday, followed by either South Korea or Japan. But that’s only half the story.”We are not aiming only at results, but we’re looking into the ways our athletes compete,” Yasuhiro Yamashita, Japanese Olympic Committee executive board member, told reporters ahead of the opening ceremony in Jakarta. “The issue is quality. If it’s a high-quality performance, then we can see we have talent for the Olympics.” China has the largest delegation with 845 athletes at the Asian Games, followed by South Korea with 807 and Japan with 768. At total of 11,300 athletes are competing from 45 nations.Yamashita, a legendary athlete who won gold in judo at the 1984 Olympics, set out the plan.Japan needs to produce where it usually does judo, wrestling, gymnastics and swimming and then add to it in sports with promising young performers: badminton, table tennis, fencing, weightlifting and sailing.He also pointed to medals in several sports added for Tokyo: baseball, softball, karate, sports climbing, and surfing.Fans will be looking for showdowns in the Asian Games between Japan and China in swimming and track and field. But Yamashita said this is only a distraction from the larger picture.advertisement”China is still No. 1 in terms of sports performance in Asia, and we need to challenge them,” Yamashita said. “If we successfully challenge it shows we are at a very high level.” (AP) APAAPA
The world of cricket is currently in awe of the New Zealand team after they were forced to finish as runners-up even though the World Cup 2019 final ended up as a tie after the Super Over. Having competed with England on equal terms throughout the match, it must be heartbreaking for the New Zealand team to come to terms with the fact that they couldn’t win the World Cup.Their neighbours Australia, on the other hand, have always advocated an aggressive and in-your-face mindset on the field to dominate over the world for years. However, New Zealand’s example shows that success on the field doesn’t necessarily have to originate from high-pitched sledging and rather nice guys can finish first too.Here we take a look at some of the nicest cricketers going around the world at the moment:Kane WilliamsonImagine you have put everything you’ve got on the field while trying to win a World Cup and the match ending as a tie. The Super Over that is designed for exactly such scenarios also ends up being tied. There also has been an overthrow that hit the opposition batsmen and the umpire erroneously signalled six runs instead of five. Still moments later, you are walking past the trophy because it’s been decided that you lost because of something you did (but could never have expected) a few hours ago. Imagine.Kane Williamson was disappointed too but was still graceful and the closest he came to criticizing whatever had transpired on that fateful Lord’s day was: “At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned winner and there it is.” Any other captain would have cried foul of the ICC rules and made some stinging remarks about how the sport must be played. Not Williamson. Not even on the sport’s biggest stage. If he wasn’t the nicest guy in the world till then, he was now.advertisementChris WoakesWoakes probably went through all the emotions that Williamson did but the major difference being that at the end of the day, he stood at the right side of the result holding the World Cup trophy. If Williamson felt speechless being heartbroken, Woakes didn’t have much to say as well, but due to entirely different reasons.Still, while all his teammates were busy running around Lord’s in ecstasy after the win, Woakes somehow came up to a crestfallen Martin Guptill, who after being run-out while going for the winning run in the Super Over, was still trying to make sense of what had just happened. Along with Kiwis James Neesham and Ish Sodhi, Woakes tried to console Guptill and it became one of the defining images of the tournament.Cheteshwar PujaraPujara is the one guy that I would choose to bat for my life. During the 2018-19 India’s tour of Australia, Pujara not just batted but also bored the Australian attack with his unflinching concentration and calm demeanour. As if scoring 521 runs and 3 centuries in a historic 2-1 series win wasn’t enough, Pujara’s nice guy image even made opposition coach Justin Langer a fan.”…I have never seen a batsman watch the ball as closely as he (Pujara) does, and that includes Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. His concentration was a challenge. And we have to keep getting better just like him, all our batsmen and bowlers,” Langer had said after India won the series. In fact at times Pujara has been called ‘too nice’ as was witnessed when he was dropped from the Indian side due to low strike-rate on the tour to West Indies in 2016. Pujara didn’t react and kept accumulating runs while wearing a smile on his face as he was soon back in the team establishing himself as one of the key members of the side.Also Read | Martin Guptill’s World Cup story: Poor run with the bat, crucial run-outs and a heartbreaking overthrowAlso Read | World Cup 2019: England hero Jofra Archer privately lamented his cousin’s demise during the tournamentAlso See:
Jürgen Klopp Klopp names Gotze as the best young player he’s worked with Chris Burton Last updated 2 years ago 19:07 11/9/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Getty Images Jürgen Klopp Liverpool Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga Premier League The Liverpool boss considers a World Cup winner he managed during his time at Borussia Dortmund to be the finest young talent he has coached Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has named Mario Gotze as the best young player he has coached.The German has been fortunate enough to work with some of the finest talent on the planet during spells at Borussia Dortmund and also at Anfield.Germany 5/1 favs to win World Cup Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He enjoyed Bundesliga title success in his homeland, with the squad he pieced together at Dortmund including World Cup winners and international stars.Gotze, who netted the extra-time winner to help Germany to global glory in 2014, is considered to be the pick of the bunch in terms of young players, with the 25-year-old forward being held in the highest regard by Klopp.Asked to pick the finest young player he has worked with while at a charity event in Cape Town, Klopp said: “Mario Gotze.“He was unbelievable. The biggest improvement, though, was Lewandowski.“I keep in contact with a lot of my Dortmund players.“They were young when I coached them, so I was like a father to them. When I left Dortmund, it’s not so important what people think when you come, it’s more important what they think when you leave.”Gotze was promoted out of Dortmund’s academy system during Klopp’s spell at the helm.He left for Bayern Munich in the summer of 2013, but returned three years later and has since been linked with a reunion with Klopp in England .Such a move could still happen, with Gotze having seen fitness issues prevent him from making the expected impact during his second stint at Dortmund.His qualities would fit the mould at Liverpool, with Klopp still looking to embrace the all-action ‘heavy metal’ brand of football which delivered him so much success in the past.He added in South Africa when asked about his philosophy: “My managerial style? I hope no one falls asleep when I answer!“The most important skill in life is common sense. I’m not skilled in intelligence, but common sense I take to the highest level.“I love to play entertaining football. I would rather have someone hit the crossbar than not shoot. I don’t like a victory with 80 per cent.“If you’re not completely exhausted, it’s a waste of time. I’m not the smartest manager in the world, but maybe the most passionate.”

L’examen des vêtements et de la peau contribue également à prévenir la maladie de Lyme. Le fait d’enlever les tiques le plus tôt possible peut prévenir ou réduire le risque d’infection puisque les tiques à pattes noires peuvent seulement transmettre l’infection bactérienne après avoir été collées à la peau pendant au moins 24 heures. On sait que les tiques porteuses de la bactérie pouvant causer la maladie de Lyme sont établies dans six régions en Nouvelle-Écosse. Il s’agit des comtés de Lunenburg, de Shelburne, de Queens, de Yarmouth et de Pictou, ainsi que de la Municipalité régionale d’Halifax. Toutefois, les tiques sont partout donc il vaut mieux prendre les précautions nécessaires lorsque vous êtes à l’extérieur. Les tiques à pattes noires porteuses de l’infection bactérienne peuvent la transmettre par leur morsure. La maladie de Lyme se traite par des antibiotiques, le plus tôt possible. Le premier symptôme de la maladie de Lyme, et le plus courant, est l’apparition d’une éruption cutanée circulaire à l’endroit de la morsure, bien que l’éruption cutanée ne soit pas toujours de forme circulaire. D’autres symptômes incluent la fièvre, la fatigue, les douleurs musculaires et les maux de tête. Toute personne qui a fréquenté des endroits où l’on trouve de l’herbe haute, des arbustes et des arbres et qui présente ces symptômes doit obtenir des soins médicaux sans tarder. Sans traitement, des symptômes plus graves peuvent apparaître, notamment la paralysie faciale (affaiblissement des muscles du visage), ainsi que des problèmes cardiaques ou des problèmes articulatoires chroniques. Ces complications peuvent également être traitées par des antibiotiques. Il y a eu 438 cas confirmés et probables de la maladie de Lyme en Nouvelle-Écosse depuis 2002. Pour obtenir plus d’information, consultez le http://novascotia.ca/dhw/cdpc/lyme.asp (en anglais seulement). Porter une chemise à manches longues, un pantalon et des chaussettes de couleur pâle afin de mieux voir les tiques, s’il y a lieu, et des chaussures fermées. Rentrer les extrémités du pantalon dans les chaussettes et rentrer la chemise dans le pantalon. Vaporiser un insectifuge contenant du DEET ou de l’icaridine sur les vêtements et les parties exposées de la peau. Vérifier les vêtements et les parties exposées de la peau après avoir travaillé ou joué dehors pour s’assurer qu’il n’y a pas de tique. Si possible, prendre un bain ou une douche dans un délai de deux heures après être rentré. Il sera ainsi plus facile de voir les tiques. Tondre la pelouse régulièrement pour réduire le risque que les tiques s’établissent sur le terrain. Mai est le Mois de la sensibilisation à la maladie de Lyme, et on encourage tout le monde à profiter des activités de plein air en toute sécurité en apprenant comment éviter les tiques à pattes noires, qui peuvent causer la maladie. « Le risque de contracter la maladie de Lyme demeure faible en Nouvelle-Écosse, mais la population de tiques s’accroît et tout le monde doit prendre de simples précautions pour éviter les morsures de tiques, a dit le Dr Robert Strang, administrateur en chef de la santé publique. Il est important de faire preuve de prudence lorsque l’on travaille ou joue dans des régions où l’on trouve de l’herbe haute, des arbustes et des arbres partout dans la province. » Il y a plusieurs façons de prévenir ou de réduire le contact avec les tiques dans ces régions :
Kochi: The Kerala government Wednesday said the condition of the college student being treated at a private hospital here for Nipah virus is stable while six others have been kept under watch at a local government medical college hospital. Authorities have scrambled to trace the source of the potentially deadly virus which resurfaced in the state a year after it struck two north Kerala districts, claiming 17 lives. A total of 314 people from various districts are currently under observation, a government bulletin said Wednesday evening. Also Read – Dussehra with a ‘green’ twist According to the bulletin, of the 314, six people have been shifted to the isolation ward of the medical college hospital. “The condition of the student is stable. It has not turned worse,” state Health Minister K K Shailaja said, a day after the 23-year-old student was confirmed to be infected with the Nipah virus. An official in the private hospital where the student is being treated also said his condition was stable. “He is conscious. He is taking food,” the official said. Also Read – India receives its first Rafale fighter jet from France A medical bulletin said there was enough stock of rebavirin medicine for treating the disease. Other medical equipment required for treatment have also been made available, it said. “All situations in the state arising out of Nipah are under control,” it said. The bulletin said samples collected from the six people, currently being treated at the isolation ward of Kalamassery medical college hospital, have been sent to the National Institute of Virology at Pune and a government lab in Alappuzha. Earlier in the day, the minister said thepreliminary assessment of the health of five of them showed that they were not “in a severe condition.” “Their health now is better than yesterday. But they are under constant watch of doctors. We expect tests of their blood samples would be negative. But we should wait till the final results come,” Shailaja, who is constantly monitoring the situation with medical experts and top health officials, said. The sixth man was shifted to the isolation ward later Wednesday. The minister said treatment for Nipah will start only if their blood test confirm they have contracted the infectious disease. The results are expected by Thursday evening. “We should be very careful till the completion of the incubation period of the virus,” she said. At present, they were being treated for fever and sore throat, said the minister. On Tuesday, the government prepared a list of 311 people, who had interacted with the student, and kept them under medical observation. According to the World Health Organisation, the incubation period (interval from infection to the onset of symptoms) is believed to range from 4 to 14 days. The minister said a review meeing chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will be held at district headquarters on Thursday. She said officials have launched efforts to trace the source of the deadly virus. Tracing the source of the virus would be a difficult task, the minister said. Meanwhile, the Ernakulam district administration said schools in the district will be opened on Thursday after the two-month long vacation. Precautionary measures have been taken to prevent the spread of the disease in the district, district collector Muhammed Y Safirulla said in a statement here. Meanwhile, the Kerala police warned that stringent action would be taken against those who spread false information through social media. The Kochi city police have registered cases against three people for allegedly spreading false news through social media, a senior police official said. Hailing from North Paravur in Ernakulam, the 23-year-old is studying in a college in Thodupuzha in Idukki district. The student, who was suffering from fever, had gone to Thrissur district with a group of students to attend a training programme. The government has urged people not to panic and take precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the disease. The administration has launched an awareness campaign through the media to meet the challenge. Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan had also spoken to Shailaja Tuesday to discuss the situation and assured all support from the Centre to the state. A control room has also been set up and the Strategic Health Operations Centre of the National Centre for Disease Control has been activated, phone number for which is 011-23978046, a health ministry statement said in New Delhi. According to state government figures, the Nipah virus had claimed 17 lives — 14 in Kozhikode and three in neighbouring Malappuram in May last year.
Kolkata: A palm of a man who was inside a Metro train coach got caught between the doors on Tuesday, but an alert RPF staff raised an alarm and the train was stopped immediately, preventing any possible injury to him, an official said. The incident, which was reported at 8.47 am at Netaji Bhavan station in a Dum Dum-bound non-AC train, brought back memories of the horrific death of a man after he was dragged by a train as his hand got stuck between its sliding doors on July 13. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja On Tuesday, the man boarded the second coach of the train. Somehow, his palm got caught between the closing doors, Metro spokesperson Indrani Banerjee said. “There was, however, little or no possibility of any mishap since the rest of his body was inside the coach,” Banerjee said, adding the man had himself pulled his fingers in as the train was stopped. An alert RPF constable, on seeing the man’s palm caught between the doors as the train started moving out of Netaji Bhavan station, raised an alarm and the motorman immediately stopped the train, she said. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway “Only one coach and half of the second coach of the train had left the platform. The rest seven coaches were still within the platform area when the train was stopped,” the spokesperson said. The man was not penalised since the train left immediately after the incident with him inside the coach, she said. After the July 13 accident, the Metro authorities have decided to penalise anyone trying to stop a train by protruding any of his limbs or other objects between the closing doors. Door sensors prevent a train from moving if any of its doors are not closed properly. A Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) inquiry is being held into the accident that claimed the life of Sajal Kanjilal. Questions have been raised as to whether the door sensors did not work since one of Kanjilal’s hands got stuck between the doors, but the train had started moving despite that. The July 13 accident took place in a newly-inducted rake made by the Integral Coach Factory, Perumbur.

Moscow – Morocco proposes to be a partner for Russian investors wishing to conquer the African market, said on Tuesday chairwoman of the Moroccan enterprise association (CGEM), Miriem Bensalah Chaqroun.Due to its strategic location, Morocco is a link between Europe and Africa and has all it takes to become a partner of Russian investors wishing to conquer the African continent, she told the Moroccan-Russian economic forum.After recalling that Morocco has concluded over 30 free-trade agreements, including with the European Union, the USA and Turkey, she recommended joint investments between Moroccan and Russian economic operators. She also insisted that it is high time to lend some added-value to trade between the two countries, noting that Morocco has drafted work plans for the promotion of several sectors and stands ready to sell its food-industry, fish, and high-quality manufactured products.Trade between the two countries went up from 1.5 billion Dollars in 2010 to 2.5 billion dollars in 2013, posting a 33pc increase, she said recalling that the number of Russian tourists to Morocco increased by 60pc between 2012 and 2013 after the opening of a direct air line between Casablanca and Moscow.
COPENHAGEN — A strike among pilots at Scandinavian Airlines has entered its fourth day with the carrier being forced to cancel 1,213 flights Monday and Tuesday, affecting some 110,000 passengers.The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden says more than 170,000 passengers have been affected since the open-ended strike started Friday. The strike began after the collapse of pay negotiations with the SAS Pilot Group, which represents 95% of the company’s pilots in the three countries.There is no sign of when talks might resume on a new collective bargaining agreement.Jacob Pedersen, an analyst with Denmark’s Sydbank, says the pilots want their share of company earnings after the carrier posted a profit in the past four years following a cost saving program that started in 2012.The Associated Press

Four former Ohio State football players will be playing in Super Bowl XLVII Sunday, and they all happen to be playing for San Francisco. The 49ers, which are set to square off against the Baltimore Ravens at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, will feature some familiar names from Buckeye Nation: former OSU offensive lineman Alex Boone, wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., linebacker Larry Grant and safety Donte Whitner. Alex Boone (2005-2008) Boone, who went undrafted in the 2009 NFL draft but got picked up for the 2010 season, has been with the 49ers his entire career. The Lakewood, Ohio, native started all four of his years in Columbus and played in the 2007 and 2008 BCS National Championships. As a 49er, he was a pro bowl alternate last season. Tedd Ginn Jr. (2004-06) Arguably, Ginn Jr. was one of the most exciting Buckeyes to watch in the Jim Tressel era. A Cleveland, Ohio, native, Ginn also returned kickoffs and punts for touchdowns. He even returned the opening kickoff in the 2007 BCS National Championship against Urban Meyer’s Florida Gators. Ginn was the ninth overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Miami Dolphins and was traded to the 49ers for a fifth round draft pick in 2010. Larry Grant (2006-07) Grant, who originally attended City College of San Francisco, transferred to OSU in 2006 before becoming a full-time starter in 2007. Grant, who like Boone appeared in back-to-back national championship games for OSU, was drafted in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the 49ers before being traded to the St. Louis Rams. In 2011, Grant re-signed with the 49ers and has been with them ever since. Donte Whitner (2003-05) Whitner, another Clevelander, has played every level of football on the same team as Ted Ginn Jr., including stints at Glenville High School and OSU. As a Buckeye, Whitner was first-team All-Big Ten in 2005 and was drafted eighth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. After playing four seasons in Buffalo, he signed a three-year contract with 49ers. Whitner was named to the Pro Bowl last season.
Rufaro Chisango, a fellow first year student at the university, posted a minute-long video on Twitter which included male voices chanting “we hate the blacks” and “blacks and whites will never be together” outside her bedroom door. The university was accused of failing to act swiftly when the racist jeers were first reported, but Miss Chisango filmed the incident and it went viral.Separately, the University of Warwick expelled three students in June and banned them from campus after their involvement in an online chat where they made racist jokes. David Isaac, chairman of the EHRC, said: “Racial harassment of any kind is abhorrent, divisive and entirely unacceptable.”There’s no place for it in society and the level that we have seen occurring within universities is particularly concerning, especially when it has a detrimental impact on student attainment and leaves staff feeling ridiculed or undermined.”Everyone must have the opportunity to reach their potential through education. Universities must have systems in place to stop racial harassment being a stumbling block to educational achievement and ensure that victims can obtain redress.”The commission will publish its findings and recommendations by autumn 2019. Earlier this year, a first year law student at Nottingham Trent University pleaded guilty to racially or religiously aggravated harassment after racist chants that left a black woman so scared that she moved out of the halls of residence.

Racist bullying could be responsible for black students receiving lower grades, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission has said as it launches an inquiry into racial harassment at universities.The UK’s equalities body said that despite more students from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds taking up places at university in recent years, they are graduating with worse degrees than their white peers. Black students are also more likely to drop out of university than their classmates.The EHRC said there is a link between “being made to feel unwelcome and attainment” which may contribute to the “lower qualifications achieved by ethnic minority students despite more entering higher education”.It launched the inquiry after both academic staff and students raised concerns about the levels of racial aggression on campus. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––“Universities and representative bodies have raised concerns that racial harassment is affecting both staff and students at British universities, which may impact on staff members’ decision to remain with their employers,” the EHRC said.“Some student representatives have also suggested that universities are brushing incidents under the carpet unless they go viral on social media.” Rufaro Chisango posted a minute-long video on Twitter of the racial jeers
L’eau du robinet pas si bonne que çaFrance – Ce soir, France 3 diffusera “Du poison dans l’eau du robinet”, un documentaire mettant en lumière les différentes pollutions contenues dans l’eau du robinet, laquelle est consommée quotidiennement par de nombreux Français.Réalisé par la journaliste Sophie Le Gall, le documentaire nous fait part des nombreuses substances toxiques contenues dans l’eau du robinet. Entre autres : de l’aluminium, du radon, des nitrates, des pesticides ainsi que des résidus de médicaments.De nombreuses molécules médicamenteuses sont présentes dans l’eau du robinet de plusieurs régions de France : antidépresseurs, aspirine, neuroleptiques et plus particulièrement, traces de pilules contraceptives. Ces dernières ont entraîné la féminisation de certains poissons, notamment celle d’un chevesne dans la Seine : un ovaire s’était développé sur l’un des testicules de l’animal.Certaines eaux contiennent également du radon, un gaz radioactif. Il peut entraîner des mutations de l’ADN ainsi que des maladies des reins et du foie. Sont aussi fréquemment décelés des traces de pesticides et d’aluminium ainsi que des nitrates, en quantités nettement supérieures aux recommandations de l’OMS. Les consommateurs encourent un risque accru de développer la maladie de Parkinson et des cancers à cause des pesticides et des nitrates, l’aluminium risquant quant à lui d’augmenter les chances de contracter la maladie d’Alzheimer.Le 17 mai 2010 à 17:32 • Emmanuel Perrin
JO de Londres : les jeux les plus écolos de l’histoire ?Pour les Jeux olympiques 2012, Londres fait le pari de réaliser les JO “les plus verts jamais organisés”. Toutefois ce ne sera que bien après la fin de la compétition qu’on saura si le pari a pu être tenu.Plus beau, plus grand, plus “propre”: tous les JO font la même promesse ! Toutefois, la chose n’est pas si évidente quand des tonnes de bétons, de déchets et des kilomètres de route doivent être mis en place. Car le parc olympique, à Londres, a été construit sur une ancienne zone industrielle défavorisée de l’est de la capitale. Comme le souligne John Sauven, directeur exécutif de Greenpeace au Royaume-Uni, “des jeux verts, c’est légèrement contradictoire”. En effet, “vous faites venir pour un week-end ou une quinzaine de jours des masses de gens, qui prennent l’avion en consommant un maximum d’énergie et repartent de la même façon : difficile d’appeler cela du développement durable”. Néanmoins, les JO de Londres ne s’en tirent pas si mal, selon lui. “Ces jeux ont l’avantage d’avoir conduit une rénovation massive d’un site industriel très pollué, et de l’intégrer par la suite dans le tissu urbain, à l’inverse de ce qui s’est fait à Athènes, où beaucoup d’installations sont devenues des ruines à l’abandon”, précise t-il cité par l’AFP. Les habitants de quartiers défavorisés vont ainsi hériter de transports modernisés, de logements abordables (48% des restes du village olympique), d’un centre commercial, d’une piscine et d’un parc de la superficie de Hyde Park. La rivière Lee a été nettoyée et 33 ponts et passages ont été bâtis. “Le parcours de la vallée de la Lee était un endroit sale, et c’est devenu un refuge de biodiversité”, souligne Kathryn Firth, de la “London Legacy Development Corporation”, l’organisme chargé de gérer l'”après-Jeux”.Un budget carbone total loin d’être négligeable À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Il semblerait que “dès le départ, le développement durable a été pris en compte”, comme l’explique David Stubbs, en charge du dossier chez l’organisateur des jeux, Locog. Ainsi, 2 millions de tonnes de sols pollués ont été nettoyés et réutilisés sur place, afin d’éviter des transports coûteux en énergie. De plus, la construction a privilégié des matériaux au faible contenu en carbone, avec pour objectif de réduire de moitié les émissions de CO2. Enfin, l’eau de pluie est réutilisée.Si ces efforts conviennent à Greenpeace et aux Amis de la Terre, ceux-ci déplorent “des occasions manquées”, comme l’abandon d’un projet d’éolienne sur le site. Au bout du compte, le “budget carbone” total pour les JO est loin d’être négligeable. “On peut encore améliorer les choses. Ce genre d’événements devrait être neutre en émission de gaz à effet de serre”, a d’ailleurs estimé Achim Steiner, directeur du Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (PNUE).Le 15 mai 2012 à 11:39 • Maxime Lambert
Alvaro Morata has set a target of 30 goals for Chelsea this season as he hopes to fire them to glory on all fronts.Morata had a turbulent debut season after making the switch from Real Madrid in what most Chelsea fans believed was a shrewd acquisition in the transfer market.The Spaniard experienced mixed fortunes in his first spell at the club as he experienced both a good and barren spell for the Londoners.His performance led to the Blues fans calling for his exit from the Club. And Italian side AC Milan almost captured the former Los Blancos player.However, Morata remained in the capital and was back on the scoresheet in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Arsenal.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.Now after getting off the mark for the new campaign, the striker believes he will continue to find the net in Maurizio Sarri’s system after blaming Antonio Conte’s “direct” style for his struggles last term.“I think for me the most important thing is the mode we play,” the striker told Chelsea’s official website. “Last year it was direct, I had to protect the ball in the air and that’s not my best quality.“Now I can attack the spaces, play one-touch and go into the area for the crosses which is better for me.“The manager works with the ball always, and when you work with the ball you have more chances, and the strikers have more chances, but that’s not the most important thing.“For sure I want to score more than 30 goals, but I would prefer to score 15 or 20 and for us to win the Premier League or another big trophy.
Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia confirmed that he’s ready to return to action ahead of their Champions League game against BSC Young BoysThe former France player was absent in last Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with CD Leganés after returning late from international duty with the Central African Republic.However, Kondogbia reported back to training on Thursday and announced that he’s ready to feature for Valencia in tonight’s crucial Group H game in Switzerland.“I’m fine, I came back on Thursday from the national team and I’m ready to play, I want to help the team,” Kondogbia told reporters on the club website.“We have an important match and we will do everything possible to win. It will be very difficult, but we will do our best.Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…Los Che are third in Group H with just a single point and need a victory tonight in order to main their qualification hopes for the knockout stages.However, like manager Marcelino Garcia Toral, Kondogbia is wary of Young Boys’ attacking prowess.“I saw their match against Manchester and it is a very powerful team, they have very fast players, who arrive quickly to the goal, so I think we have to defend well to win,” said the 25-year-old.The game at the Stade de Suisse will commence at 18:55 (CEST).
