first_img Gary McAllister Gary McAllister and Sean O’Driscoll have left Liverpool’s coaching staff as the club prepare for the arrival of Jurgen Klopp.The duo only arrived at Anfield in the summer, replacing Mike Marsh and Colin Pascoe on Brendan Rodgers’ backroom team.They have overseen first-team training duties since Rodgers was sacked following Sunday’s Merseyside derby draw.But McAllister and O’Driscoll have both now been informed by the club that they will not part of the set-up under new manager Klopp.The former Borussia Dortmund boss, who is set to be unveiled at Anfield on Friday, wants to bring in his own coaching team.Zeljko Buvac, his assistant at Dortmund, has agreed to join up with the German once again, while analyst Peter Krawietz is also expected to take up a role with the Reds.Klopp, however, is set to retain Pepijn Lijnders, who has been working as Liverpool’s first team development coach since the summer after being promoted from the academy. 1last_img read more

first_imgEverton are through to the FA Cup quarter-finals as they beat Bournemouth 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium.Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku were the goalscorers for Roberto Martinez’s side but they have Joel Robles to thank too after his early penalty save as he denied Charlie Daniels following James McCarthy’s handball.A fast-paced but sloppy encounter lacked quality in the opening stages with Tom Cleverley, Barkley wasting chances for the visitors, while Juan Iturbe and Junior Stanislas missed the target for the hosts.Bournemouth were keen to get behind the Toffees, who dominated possession, on the counter and attack the rusty Phil Jagielka but failed to quite get the measure of their passes forward.At the opposite end though, Lukaku made a fool of Tommy Elphick with his pace only to see Adam Federici’s outstretched leg deny him from scoring the opener.Bournemouth were then handed a huge opportunity to take the lead eight minutes before the break as James McCarthy’s handball earned the hosts a penalty.Charlie Daniels though, who has scored from the spot this season in the Premier League, saw his strike from 12 yards well saved by Joel Robles.While Bryan Oviedo’s flying header from the edge of was the perfect depiction of a game lacking in finesse.After the break a Shaun MacDonald volley swerved over Robles’ crossbar as the Cherries looked to break the deadlock but it was all in vain.Barkley had been the brightest player on the pitch in his role behind Lukaku and when given space on the edge of the box, with 55 minutes gone, his strike looped over Adam Federici and into the net after taking a deflection off ex-Everton star Gosling.It was nearly 2-0 moments later but Belgian forward Lukaku’s strike was ruled out for offside, much to Bournemouth’s relief.Stanislas’ deflected free-kick then had home supporters out of their seats but in the end it bobbled wide with Robles stranded.Gosling and substitute Matt Ritchie also went close as Howe’s side went for the equaliser before Eunan O’Kane denied Barkley a second goal.It only repelled the Toffees for a few seconds though as Lukaku swept home from a corner to double Everton’s tally for the evening.With Martinez satisfied, Oumar Niasse and Kevin Mirallas replaced Barkley and Lukaku for the last ten minutes and his men were able to see out the victory.

Consider the calories you could burn with it. A collection of environmentally conscious athletes, artists and musicians will gather Saturday in Redondo Beach’s Perry Park to give trash a second chance, with athletic competitions that recycle unwanted household items into sporting equipment. Visitors will be able to play a modified game of golf in which nylon-covered tennis balls are tossed toward targets and crawl through a maze built with pieces of cardboard. The Canadian Junkyard Symphony will use recyclables to make music, and artist Steve “Classic” Jasik will display cars he’s transformed into mobile pieces of art. It’s the city’s first-ever JunkFest – the brainchild of Redondo Beach resident and educator Bernie DeKoven, author of a book called “Junkyard Sports.” Published in 2004 by Human Kinetics, the book is a guide for incorporating household items in hockey, football, baseball and other games. REPURPOSING: Weekend event is about finding new uses – in art, music and sports – for old items. By Kristin S. Agostoni Staff Writer There may be another life for that old pair of pantyhose, so think twice before you toss them. “I wanted to bring it to life,” said DeKoven, who has a master’s degree in theater and teaches game design courses at Otis College of Art and Design in Playa del Rey. “First of all, there’s the repurposing message,” he said. “But there’s a playfulness and a creativity and a sense of humor that surrounds all this.” DeKoven, 66, said he pitched the JunkFest idea after speaking with a man who had read his book and wanted to bring sports to the far reaches of the Philippines. The more they talked about the games, the more DeKoven wanted to host a local event that offered athletic competitions and more, including art and music. “It’s a whole kind of focus on repurposing as a cultural vehicle,” he said. “The other part is bringing together art and play.” DeKoven eventually brought the idea to the city, found supporters and on Saturday hopes to draw a crowd. Admission is free, and adults and children can join the competitions, which will also include a four-way game of volleyball using trash bags stuffed with packing material. People who would rather sit on the sidelines can listen to symphony musicians Junkyard Jonny and Landfill Lil or look at Jasik’s art, including a car made out of the back ends of two vehicles. Believe it or not, DeKoven said, it moves. “There are going to be some very bizarre, funky-looking cars ? that were transformed into art,” he said. Also planned is a junk swap for people looking to clean up their homes or add to their collections. Bring a shopping bag full of unwanted items, and they may just be attractive to someone else. kristin.agostoni@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img Finding solutions NBC officials said they would have no comment on the matter, since most of the issues involve the developer. Rob Stutzman, a spokesman for Thomas Properties, said the firm understands the concerns and has been working with officials and the community. “We appreciate the concerns and are trying to find solutions,” Stutzman said. “The truth is we are still in the process of developing an EIR that will decide what the development looks like. “To us, what is important is we are creating and retaining jobs in the city and have a prestige tenant like NBC,” Stutzman said. “This is the process any project has to go through, and we hope we can educate people on the value of what we are proposing.” Yaroslavsky said he is considering advancing a proposal that would limit the development based on the number of vehicle trips generated. “The issue there is traffic,” Yaroslavsky said. “We want to put limits in there that would determine the amount of development allowed.” Traffic issues LaBonge agreed that traffic issues are raising the most concern. “This is not an area that can take a lot of traffic,” LaBonge said. “We have Lankershim on the east, but the other areas cannot take a lot of cars. I am very concerned about the size of this and the intensity of the development.” LaBonge said he has been meeting with NBC representatives to discuss the plans and try to scale it back. Yaroslavsky, in whose district the project sits, is waiting to see environmental studies before taking an official position. An environmental impact report is expected to be released after the first of the year. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, whose office was involved in the original negotiation with NBC and Thomas Properties, supports the development but also is encouraging negotiations on the final details, his aides said Thursday. Mayor’s backing In a luncheon speech at a Valley Industry & Commerce Association forum Thursday, Villaraigosa said the NBC project is proof of the vitality of the Valley and the city to attract major investments and generate badly needed revenue for the city. “Yet you have a couple of people scaring people.” he said. “We’re going to need VICA, we’re going to need the business community, and we’re going to need everybody to speak up.” Bruce Ackerman of the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley said the discussions are part of the process for any major development. “I think that’s why NBC and the developers are spending so much time in looking at the traffic issues,” Ackerman said. “What we have now is a vision of what they would like to do. We won’t really know what their plans are until the EIR is completed. “The one thing that’s impressed me is they have been open and communicative about their plans.” But Neumann said he became upset when he received a recent mailing on the project saying the Studio City chamber was backing it. “I don’t think we should support anything until we have all the details,” he said. The action also came as a surprise to the neighboring North Hollywood-Universal City Chamber of Commerce. “We haven’t taken a vote on this, but the members I talk to all support this,” said Victor Viereck, president-elect of the chamber. “We look at this as something that’s a positive. “For years, we’ve seen all the businesses and jobs – and taxes – move to Burbank. It’s nice to have it coming back to this area.” Viereck said the developer’s plans to build on Metro land in North Hollywood also could give a much-needed boost to revitalization plans for the area. “We think, with what they are proposing, that we will see a much richer type of development in the entire area,” Viereck said. rick.orlov@dailynews.com 213-978-0390 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Less than a month after NBC announced plans to move to an $800 million development in Universal City, opposition has started to build over concerns about the project’s massive scale and its potential impact on traffic. The project, on which NBC would serve as the major anchor tenant, initially called for construction of twin 24-story towers, a five-story studio complex and a 34-story high- rise that would all be finished over the next eight years. But Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge and county Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said they are negotiating with the developer, Thomas Properties Group, about reducing the development’s size. And on Thursday, the Studio City Chamber of Commerce board said it had withdrawn its support for the new West Coast headquarters for NBC because of the potential impact on the area. “We are back to a white canvas on this,” said Ben Neumann, a chamber director and member of the Studio City Neighborhood Council that he said now is neutral on the project.

I’m a businessman here. I’m a resident. I drive these streets every day, and we need to know what the impact will be.” NBC’s move from Burbank would centralize the station’s news properties, including the news division of local affiliate KNBC (Channel 4) and Telemundo’s KVEA (Channel 52). The complex eventually could employ about 3,200 people. But Yaroslavsky and LaBonge said they already have been working to try to reduce the project’s size because of its potential impact on traffic. “As it is proposed, this is far too big a project,” said Yaroslavsky, who is on the Metro board that will have to approve a lease for the land. “I have been talking with Thomas Properties about downsizing this,” he said. “The talks are continuing and there is nothing conclusive yet, but I believe we are making headway.” last_img read more

first_imgTHE EURO is tumbling on the markets tonight as the Greek debt crisis hits the currency.This could be good news for retailers in Co Donegal who want to stop shoppers heading north this Christmas.It is however bad news for workers paid in sterling as their take-home pay takes a battering. The euro fell against sterling, hitting the lowest since October 4th, leaving September’s low of 85.31 pence as the nearest support. A short time ago it was trading at 85.81. A break below this level would take the euro to its lowest since March.(It means the pound is now worth €1.16.53c).“I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw the September low broken, and then we have the psychologically important level of 85 (pence) to target,” said Audrey Childe-Freeman, EMEA head of currency strategy at JP Morgan private bank in an interview with Reuters.“The uncertainty as to whether there will be a (Greek) referendum or not is leaving the euro highly vulnerable.” BREAKING NEWS: EURO COLLAPSES AGAINST STERLING was last modified: November 1st, 2011 by BrendaShare this: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 Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegaldailyeuro sterling newslast_img read more
