MANCHESTER (AP): Leicester missed its first opportunity to clinch the Premier League title, drawing 1-1 at Manchester United yesterday to move within two points of the most unlikely championship in English football in a generation. Second-place Tottenham, which are eight points behind Leicester, must beat Chelsea away today to keep alive the title race. Leicester fought back at Old Trafford after going behind to Anthony Martial’s eighth-minute goal, with captain Wes Morgan heading in a free kick to equalise in the 17th. Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater was sent off in the 86th for a second yellow card. A win would have sealed the title for Leicester, a modest team from central England that narrowly escaped relegation last season and entered bankruptcy protection only seven years ago while in the third tier. Leicester’s remaining games are against Everton at home next weekend and Chelsea away on the final day of the season, but it might not go that far. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri was flying to his native Italy later Sunday to visit his 96-year-old mother. He will return today, during the Chelsea-Spurs match. United’s failure to win kept the team fifth and dented its ambitions of qualifying for the Champions League. But this game was all about Leicester, and whether Ranieri’s team a 5,000-1 long-shot for the title with British bookmakers before the season could achieve the seemingly impossible feat that would rank among the biggest underdog stories in sports.

More than 1600 students are expected to graduate at the University of Guyana’s Turkeyen Campus’s 52nd Convocation, to be held on November 10 at the National Cultural Centre.For the first time in the history of the University, the certificates, diplomas and degrees will be awarded at three ceremonies held on the same day. The increase in the number of ceremonies, from two last year, according to the University, is due to the large number of graduating students and the desire to avoid having very long ceremonies, while still maintaining the personal touch whereby each graduand crosses the stage and shakes the hand of the Chancellor.The first ceremony will be held at 09:00h, and will feature the faculties of agriculture and forestry, earth and environmental sciences, and education and humanities, with the graduation address delivered by Professor David Phoenix, Vice Chancellor of London South Bank University, one of the leading British universities with which UG is developing relations.The second ceremony, for the faculties of engineering and technology, health sciences and natural sciences, will be held at 13:00h. The feature address will be delivered by Guyana-born Professor Norman Munroe, Director, Office of Student Access and Success and of the Center for Diversity in Engineering and Computing at Florida International University.The largest of the three ceremonies will be held at 17:00h, and it will involve the Faculty of Social Sciences and the School of Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation (SEBI), the two largest units of the University. The keynote speaker will be Attorney-at-Law Kamal Ramkarran, a University of Guyana alumnus of the Class of 1997, who is a partner at Cameron and Shepherd.The more than 1600 students will graduate with master’s, bachelor’s and associate degrees; diplomas and certificates. The ceremonies will honour graduates from 116 academic programmes in UG’s eight academic units.This year marks the first time that students will graduate through SEBI since the launch of the School in 2017. The prospective graduates would have been third-year students in the Faculty of Social Sciences, pursuing programmes that were transferred to SEBI. Notably, also, will be the graduation of the first batch of students from 12 different programmes offered at the University.At the Berbice campus convocation, where more than 200 students will graduate on November 17 at the University Square at Tain, the keynote address will be delivered by University of Guyana alumna from the Class of 2016, paediatrician Dr Bibi Areefa Alladin-Karan, a Berbician who is a lecturer in the School of Medicine and a practitioner at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
Stabaek chief executive Lars Hjorth has told talkSPORT the club will not stand in Bob Bradley’s way if Sunderland come calling.Bradley, who has been in charge of the Norwegian top-flight side for the past two years, has emerged as a surprise contender to become the Premier League strugglers’ new boss.Hjorth insists he has yet to receive an approach from the Black Cats to speak to the American but he says the 57-year-old, who led his national team at the 2010 World Cup, would have his blessing to make the move to England.“Bob is allowed to speak with anybody if he wants. That is the contract he made with us when he came to Stabaek,” said Hjorth, in an exclusive interview with Ian Abrahams.“Bob has done a tremendous job here, he is a fantastic person, and if he can make the step up in his career we would wish him luck.“We haven’t had an approach yet but if Bob got an offer from a club in the Premier League, we would be very happy for him.“I know that one of his biggest wishes is to train a club in the Premier League so if he gets an offer, we will wish him good luck, and we will be very proud as a small club in Norway to give him the chance to do that.”Jan Aage Fjortoft believes Bradley would be a good appointment for Sunderland, who have yet to win in the Premier League this season.Hjorth agrees with his fellow Norwegian, claiming the former USA boss would easily adapt to English football.“In my opinion he could take over any club in Europe without a problem, maybe apart from the biggest clubs,” he said.“He has experience of national teams with USA and Egypt. And knowing him for the last two years as a person, as a trainer, I’m sure he would get success in any league he went to.”

SAN FRANCISCO–For many Giants fans who watched the team collect three World Series trophies in five seasons, it’s impossible to envision ace Madison Bumgarner wearing a different club’s uniform.But when the Giants hire a new executive to lead the front office this offseason, it’s entirely possible the person in charge won’t feel the same emotional connection to the left-hander that fans do.It’s no secret that trading Bumgarner with one year remaining on his contract could expedite a rebuild …
curt hopkins The Center for the Studies of Archaeological and Prehistoric Heritage (CEPAP) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona have developed a process using QR codes to ID and track ancient artifacts, from kraters to potsherds. Previous methods of on-artifact ID shared one thing in common: it was painfully easy to rub out, rub off or scratch out the identifying number of code written directly on or in the artifact. That process also ran the risk of marring the object. The CEPAP team has tested this process for two years, affixing QR tags on everything from sword blades to bone remains. They did so at Spanish sites, including Roca dels Bous and Cova Gran de Santa Linya in Lleida, and African sites like the Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania and Mieso in Ethiopia. Marking artifacts helps to associate information that would otherwise be lost once the object were moved. According to the center, the information includes: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… “(T)he name of the site, the archaeological level at which it was found and an inventory number. This information is essential because it remits to a complex network of data which contextualises each artefact individually.”Geolocation information on each object is also included. Using QR codes, which are like two-dimensional bar codes, to do this obviates a number of common errors that come with manual marking. Besides effacement of the codes themselves. They include scriptural error and misreadings. QR also saves a great deal of time, as hand-writing, nearly always on challenging surfaces, using a number of different media, is a demanding task. The code information also becomes instantly available online to associated scientists. CEPAP has managed to reduce artifact coding errors to 1% with this process.

Asian Games gold medallist Pinki Pramanik was relieved when the High Court ordered rape charges against her to be dropped, but now she is seeking justice for the ordeal she was put through by the complainant.Pramanik, who is employed in the Eastern Railway Sealdah, said on Friday that the complainant should be punished for tarnishing her image.”Now that I’ve been proved innocent I want to know what punishment should be given to the woman who dragged me into all this,” Pinki told PTI.The former middle distance runner was arrested on June 14, 2012 and subjected to a court ordered medical examination to determine her gender after her live-in partner, Anamika Acharya, accused her of being a male and of raping her.”It was really humiliating to go from one hospital to another for the (sex determination) test with all media attention. It has tarnished my reputation. Many a time, people would taunt at me,” Pramanik said.”But all the way, I had firm belief on the law and ignored what people said. I knew I was innocent. The day has finally come. The judgement is a reply to all those who had pointed fingers at me,” she said.She also thanked her well wishers who stood by her during this period.”Now I think the time has come to return to the track again,” the champion athlete added.
