Valencia’s boss Marcelino has expressed his concerns over his team’s inability to find the net after their eighth draw of the season against Leganes.Marcelino urged his strikers to step up and be more clinical after Jose Luis Gaya’s late goal rescued a point on Saturday.“It’s not that we’re not making chances. What we need is to do is finish off more of them,” the Coach revealed this to Football Espana after the game.“We’re not able to convert our chances and make the goalkeeper intervene. We’re worried in the sense that we’re not able to score goals at the moment.“We have to try harder, win more duels and overcome defences better. The team dominate, but we must improve a lot in an attacking sense.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…“Our forwards must find the point of initiative and decision; the spark they need. Our four strikers have only scored three goals and assisted virtually zero.“These are numbers that have to improve. We were absolutely dominant, but they defended very well.“From a throw-in, we gave away a very avoidable penalty and everything turned against us. We then pulled one back and had two more chances to win the game.“Seven draws aren’t normal. That takes us away from the important positions in the table.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists it’s only a matter of time before Callum Wilson gets a call-up to the England national team as a result of his recent performances.Wilson is currently England’s most prolific striker in the Premier league level on goals with England national team captain Harry Kane, with both players on five goals each.The former Kettering Town product had an unlucky start to life in the league, first rupturing his ACL after scoring just five goals into his debut Premier League season.But he returned back to training ahead of schedule, however, the shocks, springs and suspension of his body had yet to truly recover.His movements veered subtly to the left to accommodate his wounded knee, his once impressive acceleration was noticeably slower, as he struggled for pace.Brad Smith is loving his time at MLS Manuel R. Medina – August 27, 2019 Smith has been loaned from AFC Bournemouth to Seattle Sounders for a whole season, and the Australian footballer is enjoying his time there.Wilson was dropped, as Bournemouth signed strikers, Benik Afobe and Lewis Grabban, and if the former England U-21 international hadn’t signed to the club on a four-year contract his career with the South coast club may well have come to a premature end.The 26-year-old suffered the same ACL injury to his other knee as he worked his way back into the team, but all those memories seem a far cry away, as he has more goals to his name than Romelu Lukaku, Mo Salah and Alexander Lacazette in the league this season.“He’s certainly going to be in Gareth’s mind, I’ve got no doubt about that,” Howe said, according to The Independent.“Callum has just got to keep doing what he’s doing and if he continues to score and do well then I think it will only be a matter of time so the responsibility really is with Callum just to take care of his form for us.”
Michael Keane believes Everton can build on the point recorded at Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the campaign.Keane produced an excellent display, as the Toffees became the first team in 2018/19 to shut out Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.Marco Silva’s side has conceded only four goals in their past six games, a period in which they have lost just once and recorded two clean sheets.Everton heads into the international break in ninth spot but only one point adrift of the Premier League’s top six.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.“It was a very good point, we know what a strong start Chelsea have had and to come away from home and keep a clean sheet was the most pleasing thing from the afternoon,” Keane told the club’s website.“To come to Stamford Bridge and grind it out like that is something we can build on.“It was a physical game and we stayed very organised. It was about keeping our shape, knowing when to press and sit off because they have a lot of runners from midfield.“We battled really well, won a lot of our challenges and 50/50s and stayed on top of the game. And I thought we were fully worthy of a point.”
Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz ‘dreams of emulating Barcelona icon Xavi Hernandez.Fabian has adapted well since arriving from Real Betis in a €30m deal last summer and he went further to discuss about life in Naples in a quote cited via Football Italia.“Playing here is magnificent,” he began.“Albiol and Callejon helped me a lot. They were the first ones I spoke to. They were my translators and they’re my friends, even before they became my colleagues, but now I’m learning Italian. Napoli is a big family.“Ancelotti? Working with the Coach is fantastic and I knew him before I met him. He’s a great Coach and he’s won a lot.“The Scudetto will be difficult, but we’ll go all the way for it and we want to win the Europa League.Top 5 Serie A players to watch for next weekend’s activity Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Serie A next…“The Coach is convinced we’ll win something soon because Napoli have a strong group. We’re working calmly because we know trophies will follow.“I feel best in the middle of the park, but I also enjoy playing on the left. I fell in love with fotball thanks to Xavi.“He was a pillar for Barcelona and Spain for so many years and I dream of following in his footsteps.“My day usually consists of raining, eating lunch with the team and then relaxing at home.“In the evening I go out with Mertens, who shows me Naples. He’s a great player and person.“I still speak only a but if Neapolitan, but there is the word ‘fra’ [brother in Neapolitan], which amuses me a lot. ‘Fra’ to me is Mertens, but I never eat pizza. I don’t like it.”

The American Soybean Association (ASA) needs growers at the state level to contact their members of the U.S. House of Representatives and urge them to co-sponsor the House and Senate biodiesel tax credit bills. Recently, Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) introduced H.R. 2383 and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) introduced S. 944, to extend the biodiesel tax credit and restructure it from a blender’s to a producer’s credit. The House bill currently has six co-sponsors and the Senate bill has 15 co-sponsors. The names of the current co-sponsors can be seen here and here.To date, 46 letters were sent, and there is still time to take action through the Soy Action Center on this important issue.The bill would provide a three-year extension (2017-19) of the biodiesel tax credit and shift it from a blender’s to a production credit to further promote domestic biodiesel production.In previous years, more than 35 House members have co-sponsored biodiesel tax credit legislation and/or signed letters of support. Numbers need to match or exceed that for co-sponsors this year.
ASA CEO Steve Censky speaks during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Ag Committee.American Soybean Association (ASA) CEO Steve Censky testified before the Senate Agriculture Committee in Washington Tuesday as part of the confirmation process for his nomination to serve as Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Nominated by President Donald Trump, Censky fielded questions from the committee on his priorities if confirmed, and the manner in which he would approach representing farmers across the country. Censky, who testified alongside Indiana Agriculture Director and Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs nominee Ted McKinney, spoke to the need for focus from USDA on critical issues, like the expansion of trade agreements to benefit U.S. agricultural exports, the importance of crop insurance to farmers, and the impacts of climate change on farming operations. Censky and McKinney’s nominations now await a vote in committee, and if passed will go before the full Senate in the coming weeks.

SPOKANE — The Spokane County prosecutor says he thinks it’s time he starts carrying a gun so he joined the line of people applying for concealed weapons permits at the Public Safety Building in Spokane.Before he was prosecutor, Steve Tucker was a Washington state trooper, so it’s not a first for him.KXLY-TV talked to Tucker on Tuesday. He waited to be fingerprinted so clerks could confirm his identity and said he planned to “do everything by the rules.”Noting that two prosecutors in Texas were recently gunned down, Tucker said, in his words, “I don’t think we’re safe anywhere anymore and it’s just time to be ready for things if I can be.”He confirms he’s received some threats in the past, including some he’s taken seriously.

I will not allow it.”Duterte didn’t provide any further detail on the alleged corruption, but spokesman Salvador Panelo told media over the weekend that around 60% of PCSO’s revenues have been lost due to corruption.“All players, all participants of the gaming corporations are involved, including even the court who issues injunctions in favor of these operations,” Panelo told CNN Philippines. “The President will reveal the modus operandi of those people involved in due time.”The PCSO has seen its revenues rise significantly over the past two years, including a 34% increase to Php52.98 billion in 2017 and another 20% to Php63.56 billion in 2018. Under Philippines law, 30% of PCSO revenues must go to various health care and charity organizations each year, however there have been various accusations in recent times that funds have not always been used for their designated purpose. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has shut down the government-owned Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) and all lotteries it operates due to alleged widespread corruption within its ranks.Duterte ordered the police and military to shut down the PCSO as well as its many outlets nation-wide on Friday, adding that he would not abide by any potential court orders to resume operations.
Load More The litany of new casinos popping up in Sihanoukville are in the crosshairs of anti-narcotic investigators amid allegations they are being used to launder millions of dollars linked to Southeast Asia’s booming methamphetamine trade.Nikkei Asian Review is reporting that criminal networks have been taking advantage of Cambodia’s “porous” borders and use of US dollars to transport large sums of cash which is then cleaned using operations such as Sihanoukville’s expanding casino presence. 70% of Macau gaming market driven by 400,000 premium players: brokerage Sihanoukville authorities threaten legal action against 10 building owners over demolition orders RelatedPosts Constance Hsu appointed Group COO of Sihanoukville’s Jin Bei Group “The casinos in Sihanoukville are now worth looking into, as you have currency exchanges in all of them, and there are currency wire services just next to the gambling tables,” Nikkei quoted one international investigator as saying. “All the punters are Chinese and they gamble with thick stacks of 100 dollar bills.”According to another source described as a Western diplomat, “Suitcases full of cash are brought across the Thai-Cambodian and Vietnam-Cambodian borders regularly, and exchanging them for dollars does not raise eyebrows. The unregulated casinos are ideal venues to launder this cash.”Nikkei notes that international AML watchdog, The Financial Action Task Force, placed Cambodia on its gray list earlier this year due to concerns over the incredible explosion in new casino developments across the country, and particularly in Sihanoukville.The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has estimated that almost 150 of the 234 casinos across Southeast Asia are based in Cambodia, while IAG reported earlier this year that 13 new casino licenses had been issued by Cambodia’s Ministry of Finance in the first four months of 2019 alone, lifting the number of licenses nation-wide to a new high of 163. More than half of those, 91, are located in Sihanoukville.“Methamphetamine trafficking is the most lucrative business for transnational organized crime groups in the region,” the UNODC said recently. “The illicit proceeds are laundered through various channels, in particular the growing network of casinos in the region.”
Bristol-based film studio Aardman, best-known for animations Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, has transferred into employee ownership.Founders David Sproxton and Peter Lord have transferred the majority of Aardman’s shares into an employee ownership trust, which will hold the shares on behalf of the employer’s 140-strong workforce. The aim is to ensure that Aardman remains independent and to secure the creative legacy and culture of the organisation that has been built over the last 40 years.Law firm TLT advised on the transfer.Ben Watson, partner at TLT and leader of its employee ownership team, commented: “[We] are delighted to have been able to support [Aardman] in the move to employee ownership. The employee ownership model not only helps to ensure independence for the business, it also shares the rewards with the people who contribute to its success.“With Aardman’s co-founders looking to the future, giving control of the business to its highly creative and long-standing workforce was clearly a very suitable and positive way to move forwards.”The employee ownership trust, effective from 5 November 2018, is being run by a trustee board, made up of independent appointments and representatives selected by the workforce and the organisation’s board. David Pester, TLT’s managing partner, has been appointed as chairman of the trustee board.Aardman’s senior management team will remain in their existing roles and will form the organisation’s executive board. Sproxton will continue as managing director and Lord will stay on as creative director.Sproxton said: “The journey to employee ownership at Aardman started several years ago, prompted by a talk that described a different way of ‘exiting a business’, an alternative to the normal trade sale or [management buyout].“Our own lawyers, TLT, were also taking a real interest in the subject and this gave me confidence that employee ownership could be a viable option for Aardman. The transition itself, with a multitude of documents to explain and sign, went smoothly.”
