first_img Fornelli doesn’t think the future bodes well for the fifth-year head coach.Helton’s time at USC reminds me a lot of the Jim McElwain Era at Florida. The Gators won 19 games in Mac’s first two seasons, as well as two division titles, but they never looked like a team that was the same level as the elite programs of the country, which is where Florida wants to be. Plus, recruiting was dropping off. That’s mostly how I feel about USC right now. The Trojans won the Pac-12 in 2017, but got pantsed in losses to Notre Dame and Ohio State that season as well. Also, USC’s 2019 recruiting class is currently ranked No. 20 nationally by 247Sports’ composite rankings, but only third in the Pac-12.There is no excuse for USC to have only the third-best class in the Pac-12 ever. It’s just not supposed to happen, yet, it has this year. And if Helton doesn’t show significant improvement in 2019, I don’t think he’s around to see the 2020 class. And when you look at USC’s 2019 schedule, it’s not going to be easy to survive.You can read Fornelli’s full column here.As for USC’s schedule, Fornelli has a point. The Trojans will face always-strong Stanford in Week 2 before a road trip to BYU. They also have to travel to Arizona State and Washington in conference play and face Notre Dame in an independent game in South Bend.Utah and Oregon have to come to Los Angeles at least, but there isn’t much margin for error.

The offseason is moving swiftly.Additionally, with 2019 recruiting mostly in the bag–transfers still need to be sorted out of course–we can start looking at the 2019 season and assessing which teams and coaches have the pressure on them. There are several head coaches on the hot seat.CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli ranked the five coaches with the hottest seats in the country in his “Friday Five” column the other day. He put USC’s Clay Helton at No. 1.Helton is coming off a 5-7 season in LA, and many expected he wouldn’t be retained. However, USC AD Lynn Swann is giving him another chance.last_img read more

first_imgLondon: Fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi, wanted in India in connection with the nearly USD 2 billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud and money laundering case, is set to appear before a UK court for his customary 28-day remand hearing on Thursday.The 48-year-old is likely to be informed of the dates for his trial on the extradition charges brought by the Indian government, being represented at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London by the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsModi has been lodged at Wandsworth prison in south-west London since his arrest in March on an extradition warrant executed by Scotland Yard.Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot had presided over the last remand hearing at the court via videolink from the prison where Modi is being held, during which she had indicated that the dates for an estimated five-day trial would be mutually agreed by both sides soon.As per the timelines discussed during the brief hearing, the judge said she expected to receive all the evidence and skeleton argument bundles in the case by April 8, with a five-day hearing then expected to be slotted in May next year. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayThere are likely to be a number of case management hearings ahead of that but meanwhile a planned case management hearing for next Monday was vacated as not required.Under the UK’s law, Modi is expected to be produced before the court every four weeks.Modi has previously had his bail rejected multiple times, the fourth and final time being by the UK High Court last month.In her judgment handed down at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, Justice Ingrid Simler had concluded there were substantial grounds to believe that Modi would fail to surrender as he does possess the means to abscond . Reiterating similar concerns as those previously raised by Westminster Magistrates’ Court during earlier bail attempts, Judge Simler ruled that after considering all the material “carefully”, she had found strong evidence to suggest there had been interference with witnesses and destruction of evidence in the case and concluded it can still occur.”The applicant has access to considerable financial resources, supported by an increased [bail bond security] offer of 2 million pounds,” the judge noted.The High Court judge stressed that while it was not for her to take a “definitive view” on the evidence, she had proceeded on the basis that the government of India has acted in good faith in what is undoubtedly a serious case and a sophisticated international conspiracy to defraud, together with money laundering.Modi was arrested by uniformed Scotland Yard officers on an extradition warrant on March 19 and has been in prison since. During subsequent hearings, Westminster Magistrates’ Court was told that Modi was the “principal beneficiary” of the fraudulent issuance of letters of undertaking (LoUs) as part of a conspiracy to defraud PNB and then laundering the proceeds of crime.last_img read more

first_imgLondon: Liverpool’s sizzling start to the Premier League season has left their title rivals breathless and the red-hot leaders are expected to maintain their perfect record against Newcastle on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s side have seized the early initiative in the Premier League with four successive wins to open up a two-point lead over second placed Manchester City. The European champions’ relentless tempo has overwhelmed Norwich, Southampton, Arsenal and Burnley, sending a message that they are determined to make amends for narrowly failing to pip City to the trophy last season. Arsenal’s Dani Ceballos is new to English football after joining on loan from Real Madrid and the Spain midfielder admitted to being gob-smacked at the intensity Liverpool displayed in their 3-1 victory against the Gunners in August. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh”I had never seen anything like it. I’ve not seen up until now a team that plays better, that presses better. That game had quite an impact on me,” Ceballos told the Daily Mail. “They suck the air out of you. You spend so much time defending and when you want to catch your breath and get on the ball for a bit, they’ve taken it from you again. “I think Jurgen Klopp now has the team he first had in mind when he started four years ago.” That glowing testimony underlines the size of the task facing City as they try to stop Liverpool winning their first English crown since 1990. City may have won the last two Premier League titles in scintillating fashion, but Liverpool look better than ever this term and Newcastle are unlikely to halt their progress at Anfield this weekend.last_img read more

Nearly 9 in 10 babies born in Sri Lanka are breastfed within the first hour, UNICEF and WHO said in a new report.An estimated 78 million babies – or three in five – are not breastfed within the first hour of life, putting them at higher risk of death and disease and making them less likely to continue breastfeeding, the new report said. Most of these babies are born in low- and middle-income countries. The report notes that newborns who breastfeed in the first hour of life are significantly more likely to survive. “Breastfeeding gives children the best possible start in life,” says Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “We must urgently scale up support to mothers – be it from family members, health care workers, employers and governments, so they can give their children the start they deserve.”Capture the Moment, which analyzes data from 76 countries, finds that despite the importance of early initiation of breastfeeding, too many newborns are left waiting too long for different reasons, including:Feeding newborns food or drinks, including formula: Common practices, such as discarding colostrum, an elder feeding the baby honey or health professionals giving the newborn a specific liquid, such as sugar water or infant formula, delay a newborn’s first critical contact with his or her mother. Even a delay of a few hours after birth could pose life-threatening consequences. Skin-to-skin contact along with suckling at the breast stimulate the mother’s production of breastmilk, including colostrum, also called the baby’s ‘first vaccine’, which is extremely rich in nutrients and antibodies. The rise in elective C-sections: In Egypt, caesarean section rates more than doubled between 2005 and 2014, increasing from 20% to 52%. During the same period, rates of early initiation of breastfeeding decreased from 40% to 27%. Across 58 countries between 2005 and 2017, deliveries at health institutions grew by 18 percentage points, while early initiation rates increased by 6 percentage points.In many cases, babies are separated from their mothers immediately after birth and guidance from health workers is limited. In Serbia, the rates increased by 43 percentage points from 2010 to 2014 due to efforts to improve the care mothers received at birth.Earlier studies, cited in the report, show that newborns who began breastfeeding between two and 23 hours after birth had a 33% greater risk of dying compared with those who began breastfeeding within one hour of birth. Among newborns who started breastfeeding a day or more after birth, the risk was more than twice as high.The report urges Governments, donors and other decision-makers to adopt strong legal measures to restrict the marketing of infant formula and other breastmilk substitutes.The WHO and UNICEF-led Global Breastfeeding Collective also released the 2018 Global Breastfeeding Scorecard, which tracks progress for breastfeeding policies and programmes. In it, they encourage countries to advance policies and programmes that help all mothers to start breastfeeding in the first hour of their child’s life and to continue as long as they want. A study across 51 countries notes that early initiation rates are significantly lower among newborns delivered by caesarean section.In Egypt, only 19% of babies born by C-section were breastfed in the first hour after birth, compared to 39% of babies born by natural delivery.Gaps in the quality of care provided to mothers and newborns: The presence of a skilled birth attendant does not seem to affect rates of early breastfeeding, according to the report. “When it comes to the start of breastfeeding, timing is everything. In many countries, it can even be a matter of life or death,” says Henrietta H. Fore, UNICEF Executive Director. “Yet each year, millions of newborns miss out on the benefits of early breastfeeding and the reasons – all too often – are things we can change. Mothers simply don’t receive enough support to breastfeed within those crucial minutes after birth, even from medical personnel at health facilities.”Breastfeeding rates within the first hour after birth are highest in Eastern and Southern Africa (65%) and lowest in East Asia and the Pacific (32%), the report says. Nearly 9 in 10 babies born in Burundi, Sri Lanka and Vanuatu are breastfed within the first hour. By contrast, only two in 10 babies born in Azerbaijan, Chad and Montenegro do so. read more

Mrs Ashbrook added: “The path would also need to be shifted off its true line which would require a further formal diversion order. We would object to this and it would have to be determined by the Secretary of State for Environment. The path could not be moved unless this diversion order was confirmed.“We believe the fence would also obstruct a footpath which runs to the north of the bridleway.”Mr Getty’s grandfather, Jean Paul Getty, was born in the American state of Minneapolis in 1892, and married five times. He founded the Getty Oil Company and by 1957 was named by Fortune magazine as the richest living American. When he died in 1976 he was estimated to be worth more than $6 million.Despite his vast wealth, he was known to be frugal and bargained down the ransom of his grandson, after Jean Paul Getty III, was kidnapped and had his ear cut off in 1973.Mr Getty, who was born Tara Gabriel Gramophone Galaxy Getty in 1968, was last night unavailable for comment. The area has signs warning that CCTV is in operation in the area John Paul Getty Junior and his wife Talitha wearing Moroccan caftans  However, his plans have been met with anger amid concerns they would make a public path seem private and ultimately force the right of way to be moved.The Henley-based Open Spaces Society, Britain’s oldest national conservation body, along with Buckinghamshire Ramblers, Cycling UK and Buckinghamshire County Council are fighting the application.Kate Ashbrook, general secretary of the Open Spaces Society, said: “The farm is in a lovely, quiet valley in the heart of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  “Deer fencing would be an eyesore, in particular for users of the bridleway which is an attractive, open route with a wide path on a direct line.“The fencing would result in the path being narrowed in two places, causing a pinch point for walkers, riders and cyclists; this would adversely affect their enjoyment and ease of use.“With electronically-controlled gates, these works would make the whole area appear private, threatening and urban. Already the owner has erected discouraging notices about CCTV; the fencing would make this situation worse.” The area has signs warning that CCTV is in operation in the areaCredit:David Rose/The Telegraph  John Paul Getty Junior and his wife Talitha wearing Moroccan caftans Credit:Patrick Lichfield/Conde Nast Collection Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Kieran Foster, national off-road advisor of Cycling UK, wrote to Wycombe District Council opposing the plans claiming they would “narrow the width of the existing bridleway, making use less attractive and potentially increasing conflict between users”.He adds that the “interference” would create new “inconveniences” for cyclists, horse riders and disabled people who would have to open and close “gates twice in the space of a short distance”.“The excessive use of gates is a particular bugbear for cyclists,” he continues. “The difficulty and disadvantage of opening gates, along with their restricted width and latches is widely complained about by many of our members.”He quotes from a 2010 case law in which it was ruled that having gates on a public route may “have the psychological effect on walkers of indicating that they were entering private property and discourage some from entering.”It is understood that in a previous planning application Mr Getty’s representatives had complained that some people walking along the route had stopped to take photographs of the properties, which include a gym and games room. It was even claimed that passersby could see in to one living room to watch a large television fitted to a wall. Another sign directs people on a "preferred" route As the grandson of an oil tycoon who was once the richest man in the world, it may be understandable that Tara Getty fiercely guards his privacy. The fact his elder half-brother was kidnapped and had his ear cut off while his grandfather, J Paul Getty, haggled over the ransom, makes his penchant for solitude seem even more inevitable.But, an attempt to make an “exquisite” public path that runs directly in front of his Buckinghamshire farm “appear private and threatening” has enraged campaigners, many concerned that the Getty estate has grown already exponentially in size.The vast property, which includes an old farm and recently built mansion, already has public notices warning CCTV is operating, while another sign urges people to use a “preferred bridleway route and footpath avoiding driveway”.Mr Getty, an ecological conservationist and company director, wants to erect 6ft (1.8m) high deer fencing and two electronically controlled black metal gates along that public route near his family home in Ibstone.–– ADVERTISEMENT –– Another sign directs people on a “preferred” routeCredit:David Rose/The Telegraph read more
