Roma branded the accusations made by Francesco Totti in a parting shot at the club “fanciful and far from reality”.Totti officially stepped down as a director of Roma on Monday, bringing an end to his 30-year stay in the Italian capital.Speaking at an explosive press conference to explain the reasons behind his exit , the former captain hit out at the Serie A side for not taking his views into consideration during his two-year stint in the position. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “I never had the chance to express myself,” Totti told reporters. “They never involved me. The first year that can happen but by the second [year] I understood what they wanted to do. “They knew of my desire to offer a lot to this squad but they never wanted it. They kept me out of everything. It’s a day that I hoped never would have come.”Roma released a statement on their official website to respond to Totti’s claims, reiterating the 42-year-old chose to resign instead of taking up a new role as technical director – as revealed by American owner James Pallotta last week.”The club is extremely disappointed to learn that Francesco Totti has announced that he has decided to leave the club and not take up the position of technical director of Roma,” the statement read. “We offered this role to him after Monchi’s exit, for which we were awaiting his answer.”We believed that the role offered to Francesco is one of the most senior positions at the club and obviously requires total dedication and commitment, something that is expected of all senior managers within the club.”We were prepared to be patient with Francesco and help him achieve the transition from being a great footballer into a great manager. To demonstrate this commitment to Francesco, the role of technical director was offered to him – a role that we believed he could grow into and one in which we offered to support him in while he adapts.”While we understand how hard it must be for him to take this decision to leave AS Roma after 30 years, we believe that his perception of the facts and decisions made at the club are both fanciful and far from reality.”A month on from Daniele De Rossi announcing his exit, Totti also suggested Romans have been forced out of the Stadio Olimpico since Pallotta took over in 2011.And the one-club man made clear he would consider a return should there be a change of ownership further down the line.The club statement continued: “Regarding the repeated references to a possible comeback with a new ownership, combined with information about interested parties collected by him around the world, we hope that this was not meant to be an inappropriate anticipation of a takeover attempt of the club, a scenario that would be very sensitive as Roma is a listed company. “The club’s investor group have absolutely no intention of putting Roma up for sale, now or in the future. We wish Francesco only good luck with what he decides to do next.”
When Jon Koller first started growing through puberty, he realized he hated shaving so much, that he would rather grow a beard than shave regularly. He grew one beard after another, and people would tell him countless times to shave it off, but he didn’t care and kept on growing out his whiskers. According to their website, “Then one day in 2009, somebody said, ‘either cut it off or put something on it.’ But what could that magical ‘something’ be? After years of development, Beard Balm, our namesake product was born.” Koller started cooking up cans of beard balm out of a pot in his kitchen in Detroit, making 50 lbs. of the goo at a time, and sold Beard Balm at holiday markets, before long, business started booming, and he moved the operation to Ponyride in Detroit.Now on a busy day, Koller, who is also an engineer, makes up to 200,000 cans of Beard Balm, which is made of grape seed oil, coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, and geranium oil. Locally made in Detroit, Beard Balm comes in a number of different varieties, like the original, which has a clean scent, unscented for the sensitive folks who prefer no extra scent and more. “It lasts forever, and it makes you have an awesome beard,” said Koller when we recently paid Beard Balm a visit at its production headquarters in Detroit. “It’s a conditioner for really coarse hair, it’s also good on your cuticles.”We scored a few cans of Beard Balm and it has certainly won over the beard-wearing friends who have it.

1 of 6 11 Under-the-Radar Cities in Canada Worth Exploring Previous At The Manual, we care deeply about supporting small, local family farms. Not only are you putting money back into the community and committing to a more sustainable way of eating, the meat simply tastes better. Now, one of our favorite ways to celebrate heritage pork and whole animal butchery is back — Cochon555 is rolling into a city near you.If you’re not familiar with Cochon555, it’s basically the best pork-lovers event to sweep the nation. Some hundred-plus chefs, farmers, sommeliers, distillers, brewers, and bartenders gather at the event each year to bring you the best in whole-hog cuisine and the drinks that go with it. The tour kicked off in New York City on January 21 when five local chefs were tasked with cooking a whole heritage-breed pig from a nearby family farm.Image courtesy of Cochon555The chefs receive the hog two weeks before the event and have to cook no more than six dishes using the animal from nose to tail. They then present a Judge’s Plate to a panel of 20 celebrity judges who analyze flavor, utilization, and technique. In addition, the audience chooses their favorite bite of the day, which also helps determine which chef is crowned “Prince or Princess of Pork.” The winner of each city’s competition goes on to compete in Grand Cochon in Chicago on September 30. If you’re thirsty for more friendly culinary rivalry, five bartenders also compete in the large-format drink contest Punch Kings, and five sommeliers go head-to-head in Somm Smackdown as they try to pair the best wine with the hog.Perhaps our favorite part of Cochon555 is the pop-up butcher and silent auction. At each event, a team of local butchers breaks down a whole hog in front of a live audience and auctions off the parts to benefit Piggy Bank. Founded in 2015, Piggy Bank is a start-up farm in Missouri that provides useful information for raising heritage breed pigs to small farmers starting out in the industry. The organization will supply piglets to these farms in exchange for business plans that are posted online in the name of transparent “open-source agriculture.” They also act as a safety net for these small farms if they’ve been affected by disasters such as flood, fire, or disease. Piggy Bank works to foster a healthy, sustainable, strong, and equitable world through farming, which is an idea we can always get behind.While there are about 1,500 pounds of juicy heritage pork to enjoy at each Cochon555 event, there are lots more artisan bites and libations to be had. The welcome lounge at the New York event featured a Buffalo Trace bourbon bar and a cheese bar with Schuman Cheese and Cypress Grove. Antica Wines of Napa Valley was on hand to pair their vinos with various types of tartare, and more wine selections were matched with the rich and delicious organic pâtés from Three Little Pigs. Plenty of pastry chefs were on the scene to show off their desserts to anyone with a sweet tooth.

Three Heritage Fire (similar to the regular Cochon555 competitions, but outside with live fire cooking) events take place in Aspen, Boston, and Napa Valley this summer, all leading up to the Grand Cochon Finale in Chicago on September 30. There, winners from all the Cochon555 events throughout the country gather to go head-to-head for a nose-to-tail, winner-takes-all culinary showdown.Since 2009, more than $1,100,000 from the Cochon555 events has been donated to charities, and another $1,200,000 has been paid directly to the farmers they support.

zoomImage Courtesy: DP World An international joint-venture formed by Dubai-based port and terminal operator DP World and industrial engineering specialists SMS group will revolutionize the way that containers are handled in ports.A new and intelligent storing system will be applied for the first time ever at Jebel Ali Terminal 4, in time for the Dubai Expo 2020 world fair.The High Bay Storage system was originally developed by SMS group subsidiary AMOVA for round the clock handling of metal coils that weigh as much as 50 tons each in racks as high as 50 metres.Instead of stacking containers directly on top of each other, which has been global standard practice for decades, the system places each container in an individual rack compartment. Containers are stored in an eleven-story rack, creating 200 percent more capacity than a conventional container terminal, or creating the same capacity in less than a third of the space.DP World explained that the rack’s design allows each container to be accessed without having to move another one, enabling 100 percent utilization in a terminal yard, while at the same time cutting costs by as much as 30 percent.“Our system will significantly increase the productivity of handling ships on the quay. This means that quay walls can be shortened by a third. This disruptive innovation will greatly improve the financial performance of container ports, and well as their overall appearance,” Mathias Dobner, CEO of the joint venture, said.
Nova Scotia baseball fans are celebrating the Boston Red Sox’ 2007 World Series victory as the series trophy and Red Sox mascot arrive in Halifax today, Jan. 7. The trophy is spending two days in the province. Premier Rodney MacDonald will welcome members of the Red Sox staff at a reception at Province House today. The trophy will be available for public viewing at MicMac Mall and the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame tomorrow, Jan. 8. Bill Dooks, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Heritage, said he is pleased to welcome staff from the Major League Baseball team to the province. “We’re happy to bring the Boston Red Sox trophy to the province and join the celebration of their spectacular win in the World Series,” said Mr. Dooks. “We’re always eager to share our province with visitors, especially from key target markets like Boston, and offer them our famous Nova Scotia hospitality.” Nova Scotia has a dedicated group of fans called the Bluenose BoSox Brotherhood that helped secure the trophy’s visit to the province. “This visit by the Red Sox means the world to fans here in Nova Scotia,” said brotherhood co-founder Jim Prime. “We’re honoured to have this opportunity to share in the Red Sox victory and to give sports fans in the province a chance to see the World Series Trophy up close.” The 2007 World Series Trophy and mascot, Wally the Green Monster, will be at: Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame, 1800 Argyle St., Suite 446 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. — MicMac Mall, 21 MicMac Blvd., 2:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. The Red Sox are also bringing the trophy to private events at the IWK Health Centre and St. Patrick’s-Alexandra Elementary School.
Beijing: Huawei employees have teamed up with Chinese military scientists to carry out research, a collaboration that challenges the telecom giant’s assertion that it has no ties to the country’s government or armed forces. Founded by former People’s Liberation Army (PLA) engineer Ren Zhengfei, Washington suspects Huawei has deep ties to China’s military and thus poses a security threat. US President Donald Trump placed Huawei last month on a blacklist prohibiting US firms from selling components to the company, raising tensions in the US-China trade war. A 90-day reprieve was granted. Several research papers published since 2009 show Huawei employees have worked with researchers at different arms of the People’s Liberation Army, according to an AFP review of academic papers. Bloomberg News first reported on the collaborations. Military and private sector collaboration is common in many countries but Huawei has gone to great lengths to deny any close relationship with the Chinese government or military. Microsoft researchers in China for instance raised eyebrows earlier this year for their work with scholars affiliated with a Chinese military-backed university — researchers from the same university worked with a Huawei employee on at least one project. Huawei employees and PLA members have worked together on at least 10 research projects including artificial intelligence and radio communications, according to Bloomberg News. Ren has denied Huawei maintains military connections. “We don’t have any R&D collaboration or partnerships with the PLA-affiliated institutions,” Ren told journalists in January, according to a Huawei transcript. “We are probably selling a small amount of civilian products to the PLA, but I don’t know the exact number, because it is not our major customer,” he said at the time. But the academic papers list the names of the researchers and the Huawei units they work for. An employee at Huawei’s Shanghai office is listed as the lead author of one research project alongside a member of PLA unit 78156 and another researcher at an investigative centre under the Central Military Commission. The project focused on better understanding and classifying the emotions of comments on online videos and appeared to be funded by a Chinese government information security programme. Another paper was authored by an employee at Huawei’s Beijing office who teamed up with a computer scientist from the National University of Defense Technology, and other researchers, to look into methods of analysing software quality, security and reliability. Huawei is not aware of its employees publishing research papers in their individual capacity, a company spokeswoman said in a statement, adding that Huawei does not have any R&D collaboration with PLA-affiliated institutions. The defence ministry said it does not comment on academic research. “As everybody knows Huawei is a privately-owned company that has developed independently,” added ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang at a monthly briefing on Thursday. “There is no such thing as (Huawei) having a Chinese military background,” he said. Since coming under fire from Washington last year, Huawei has adopted an aggressive media push to deny the alleged close relations with Beijing and espionage accusations. But the denials, particularly from founder and CEO Ren, have occasionally led to messaging mishaps for the company. In an interview with the BBC in February, Ren denied that Huawei received government subsidies. But Huawei records show the company has taken in hundreds of millions of dollars in research grants from the Chinese government over the last decade — in addition to being awarded heavily subsidised land and massive credit lines from state policy banks to help sell its telecom gear abroad. A Huawei spokeswoman later told AFP that Ren meant Huawei did not receive any “special” subsidies from the government.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – MoviePass, the discount service for movie tickets, is raising prices by 50 per cent and barring viewings of most major releases during the first two weeks.The new $15-a-month rate for up to one movie each day still won’t make MoviePass profitable. Because it typically pays theatres the full cost of tickets — which can be $15 or more in big cities — a movie or two can put the service in the red. The old monthly rate was $10.MoviePass has shown that many moviegoers will make time to hit theatres when movies are affordable, despite more convenient options such as Netflix and video on demand. At some theatres, it is common to see long lines with people holding red MoviePass cards, which subscribers can use to charge a movie to the service.MoviePass has grown to 3 million subscribers, from about 20,000, since it slashed monthly rates nearly a year ago to $10, from as high as $50. The company claims that its subscribers accounted for 6 per cent of U.S. box office revenue in the first half of the year.But its financial sustainability has come into question. Last week, its parent company took out a $5 million emergency loan to pay its payment processors after missed payments resulted in service outages.MoviePass said the rate hike will go into effect within the next 30 days. Tuesday’s announcement comes just days after the company, in a note to subscribers, justified surcharges for popular movies and show times as a way to keep rates low.To curtail expenses, subscribers won’t be able to watch most blockbusters until the third week of release. MoviePass already did that with the new “Mission Impossible” movie, which opened this past weekend. MoviePass said a movie distributor could allow earlier viewings through the service by reaching revenue-sharing or other arrangements with MoviePass. With “Mission Impossible,” MoviePass also exempted theatres with which it has deals.In recent months, MoviePass also stopped letting subscribers view the same movie multiple times and began requiring moviegoers to send photographs of ticket stubs as proof.“These changes are meant to protect the longevity of our company and prevent abuse of the service,” MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe said in a statement. “While no one likes change, these are essential steps to continue providing the most attractive subscription service in the industry.”One major theatre chain, AMC, recently came up with its own subscription service after complaining that MoviePass was changing moviegoers’ expectations.AMC said Tuesday that in just five weeks, its Stubs A-List service enrolled more than 175,000 subscribers, ahead of its own projections. The service costs $20 a month for three movies a week, though it allows 3D, Imax and other premium screenings, something MoviePass currently does not.
The UN Peacebuilding Commission’s high-level stakeholders consultation on Sierra Leone, being held at UN Headquarters, also considered new initiatives and partnerships to generate more support for existing peacebuilding activities, the Commission said in a press statement.Last December the Commission and the Government of Sierra Leone adopted an agreed framework spelling out what specific actions both parties will take in the short-to-medium term to deal with the remaining challenges to consolidating peace in the West African country, which has been beset by war for nearly all of the 1990s.The framework highlights five priority areas: justice and security sector reform; youth employment and empowerment; good governance; energy sector development; and capacity building.Addressing today’s consultation, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reiterated that effective peacebuilding is based on three principles – national ownership, mutual accountability and sustained engagement.Mr. Ban said he hoped today’s meeting would result in clear commitments for support to the implementation of the framework.“Our collective and individual support will be critical to sustaining Sierra Leone’s impressive progress towards peace, development and prosperity,” he said. 19 May 2008Representatives of the United Nations, individual Member States, regional organizations, the private sector and civil society have gathered today in New York to discuss how to increase the level of international involvement in Sierra Leone’s efforts to make the transition from years of civil conflict towards eventual stability and prosperity.
NHS IT systems that are “downright dangerous” are risking the lives of patients, the new Health Secretary has warned.Matt Hancock vowed to “bring the NHS into the 21st century” as he launched a ‘bonfire of the fax machines’ and waged war on outdated technology.Writing in The Telegraph, he said the lack of basic systems to transfer vital patient information was hindering the efforts of medics, paramedics and nurses to save lives.“The fact that your hospital can’t see your GP record, or that you as a patient don’t have control over your own data, or that even within the same hospital different departments have to write down basic details is expensive, frustrating for staff, and risks patient safety,” Mr Hancock warned, highlighting a recent tragic case.Tamara Mills, 13, from Newcastle, died of a fatal asthma attack, despite having been seen by health professionals 47 times in different parts of the NHS.But the lack of a clear record, showing repeated trips to Accident & Emergency departments, and increased reliance on medication, meant no-one detected that her condition was deteriorating before her death in 2015. “A world where we ask an ill patient over and over for their past medical history is a problem. A world in which a hospital can’t pull up a patient’s GP record to see the reason for stopping and starting medications is downright dangerous,” he writes.Today the Health Secretary, appointed in July, will announce a £200m fund to assist NHS trusts in developing systems which work across the NHS, and ensure patient records can be safely accessed.He will tell a conference that the generic technology available outside the NHS is “a million times better” than that in use by doctors and nurses.And Mr Hancock is expected to announce that a new NHS app will begin being tested in five parts of the country by the end of this month, enabling patients to book GP appointments, access the NHS 111 service, view their medical records and record their organ donation preferences.The scheme will be tested in Liverpool, Hastings, Bristol, Staffordshire and South Worcestershire, and is due to be rolled out nationally by the end of this year.Two weeks ago, the former culture secretary spent a night shift with crews from the London Ambulance Service, and staff at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Describing Britain as a “global leader” in AI and genonomics, he will say the NHS had the opportunities to be the best in the world at health technology, using it to save lives.Later this year, he will unveil a 10 year plan for the NHS, setting out how a £20bn funding boost will be spent, having already said that technology, development of the NHS workforce and prevention of illness will be his major priorities. He said he was left impressed by the “amazing” staff – but shocked by the systems they were forced to battle with.“I was struck during those 12 hours by the dedication and camaraderie of the staff, and the ability of the medics, paramedics and nurses to administer care with compassion and impart huge amounts of complex information while under pressure. But perhaps more than these things, I was struck by how far we need to go to fix our stuttering IT systems,” he writes.“For years we’ve spoken about the importance of national interoperability standards, meaning systems which can talk to each other, but I still saw staff resorting to pen and paper because their own networks simply couldn’t communicate.”“And don’t get me started on the fact the NHS remains one of the largest buyers of fax machines on the planet,” Mr Hancock continued, signalling frustration.The Health Secretary said the NHS could not afford to shy away from reform, despite its chequered history with IT.Today he will urge NHS managers at the Health and Care Innovation Expo, in Manchester to seize the opportunties of cutting edge technlogy, like artificial intelligence – and to get on with fixing the basics. Dawn Wilson’s 13-year-old daughter Tamara Mills died after being seen by 47 different NHS professionalsCredit:Craig Connor/NNP Mr Hancock, who has made technology one of his key priorities for the NHS, suggested the lack of basic interoperability between hospitals, GPs and ambulance services is costing lives.

FIFA HAS OPENED disciplinary proceedings against Luis Suarez after an alleged biting incident in Uruguay’s final group game at World Cup 2014.The world football body said there was “an apparent breach” of its disciplinary code during the game against Italy on 24 June.Suarez and the Uruguayan FA have until 5pm today (Brazil time; 9pm Irish time) to provide their side of the story. They are also allowed to submit any documentary evidence they deem relevant.The FIFA rulebook says that its Disciplinary Committee is responsible for “sanctioning serious infringements which have escaped the match officials’ attention”.Last night, Suarez moved to downplay the incident, saying “these things happen” on a football field.However, the storm continues this morning with many of Ireland’s newspapers splashing to Premier League star on their front pages, gripping his teeth in apparent pain while Italian Giorgio Chiellini shows off his dented skin.He could face a lengthy ban if found guilty of biting. FIFA’s disciplinary code has the power to suspend a player for up to 24 matches – including club and international games – or 24 months.The longest ban handed down at the World Cup was in 1994 when Mauro Tassotti broke Luis Enrique’s nose with an elbow. He received an eight-match ban.Suarez has missed 17 career games as a result of two previous biting incidents. In April 2013, he received a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and, while playing at Ajax in 2010, he was handed down a seven-game ban.‘Nothing happened’, snaps Uruguay’s Lugano as FIFA promise investigation into Suarez ‘bite’‘Chiellini bumped into me with his shoulder’, says Suarez as he complains of eye injury
Almost 300 new cases of swine flu have been detected in Greece over the past week, taking the total number of people in the country who have contracted the potentially fatal virus to over 1,000, the Hellenic Center for Infectious Diseases Control (KEEL) said last week. However, it is estimated that the actual number of cases in Greece is much higher, because mild cases are no longer reported by authorities. Of the 1,002 confirmed cases, 435 are people who have travelled from another country or those who have come into contact with them. Almost half (460) of the cases have been reported in Attica, followed by 159 cases on Crete and 127 on the Ionian Islands. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Cancun, Q.R. — The most violent areas in the city of Cancun have been named according to a report from the justice bureau.The new coordination of the Security and Justice Bureau of the Municipalities of Benito Juárez and Isla Mujeres reports that on average, 44 murders take place each month in Cancun with the areas of El Crucero and Villas Otoch being the most violent in the city.“The social degradation, the lack of neighborhood coherence and the high migration in the north of Cancún are reflected in a very serious problem of insecurity in the failed Villas Otoch subdivision, the 100 and 200 regions, as well as the El Cruise,” said Wexford James Tobin Cunningham, general coordinator of the Bureau.James Tobin indicated that in the case of intentional homicides, it is estimated that the year will close with 42 to 44 executions per month in Cancun, a rather negative figure for the tourist destination.He mentioned that in the last two years there has been an upward trend in homicides in Benito Juarez, with a peak in April with 60 homicides.“Today, our idea is that these coming months will be complicated by the elections that have just ended and the transformation from one municipality to another. This transfer of powers normally generates a vacuum, which the board is seeking to avoid in this case,” he pointed out.He noted that there are other indicators of violence, such as kidnapping, extortion, business robbery with violence and vehicle theft, stressing that if these acts are not controlled, more serious situations can be unleashed.He reported that extortion peaked in November of last year and March of 2018 with six cases being reported, adding that they believe there are more but cannot record the incidences without formal complaints.Business robbery with violence added 373 cases to figures in October 2017, a problem that is also increasing along with vehicle theft with an average of 45 a month.Isla Mujeres, he says, has less crime but should not be neglected to avoid the island becoming a problem in the future.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)
