Liverpool win race to sign Chelsea and England Under-20 striker Dom Solanke

first_img1 Liverpool have won the race to sign Chelsea youth team striker Dom Solanke after beating off competition from a number of Premier League clubs, Celtic and RB Leipzig.The 19-year-old has allowed his contract to run down at the champions after failing to agree terms on a new deal and it is understood he has opted to join Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.A fee, possibly in the region of £2million to £3million, for Solanke will be decided by a tribunal and the player, who has agreed a contract under £20,000-a-week, will initially go into the club’s under-23 side.Klopp used a number of the under-23s squad – such as Sheyi Ojo, Ovie Ejaria, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Wilson and Ben Woodburn – in the first team last season and is keen for that group to be more competitive to supplement the senior squad and also play in cup matches as they now have Champions League football to contend with.Solanke, who is currently part of Paul Simpson’s squad for the Under-20s World Cup in South Korea, made his senior debut for Chelsea at the age of 17 in 2014 but has failed to break through since and spent last season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem.It is believed negotiations over his contract at Stamford Bridge faltered over his concerns about a lack of playing time.

Villaraigosa won’t step aside with a slip of the Spanish

first_imgGroundbreaking ceremonies last week for the new Children’s Museum of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley drew some laughs – and a complaint in the category of “letting no good deed go unpunished.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa praised the Hansen Dam site that officials hope becomes a Valley landmark, but found himself a bit tongue-tied when he offered remarks in Spanish identifying City Council President Alex Padilla as “presidente municipal” – the equivalent of mayor. Quickly catching himself, Villaraigosa said he wasn’t ready to turn over his job to Padilla, who he reidentified as “presidente de consejo.” Padilla, meanwhile, found himself forced to answer questions about whether the ceremonies – held at 10 a.m. Tuesday – violated a provision of the city administrative code that bans any events that conflict with a City Council meeting. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The council is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “We had no choice,” Padilla said. “We were trying to accommodate a lot of officials from all over the country who rearranged their schedule to come here. Besides, the council was able to meet and I arrived a little late …” And Padilla said he also felt the event was worth it. “This is a $20 million project that we have been waiting for a long time to see get started,” Padilla said. For an old union hand, Villaraigosa is talking tough about the unions these days and the potential demands they could place on the city budget. Surprisingly, one of the areas in which he is concerned is how successful the unions have been in organizing all levels of city workers – including managers. It was one of the reasons he said he felt he had no choice but to sign off on a new contract for Department of Water and Power workers: There were not enough nonunion personnel to keep the system operating if there was a strike, the mayor said. The issue came up again last week when the mayor held one of his meetings with general managers. One of the top issues managers raised was reviewing the city’s Civil Service rules for midlevel workers to give managers greater leeway in running their departments. The primary message Villaraigosa has been giving managers in his first months in office is looking for ways to save money and improve efficiencies. The new Scenic Air service out of Palmdale to Las Vegas has a high-profile devotee. Airport Commissioner Valeria Velasco, who represents the area around LAX, ventured to the city-owned airport in Palmdale last week to promote the commuter airline’s new service as well as to try to encourage greater use of the facility. “There are 17,000 acres out here,” Velasco said. “That could put five LAXs out at Palmdale.” The biggest problem the city has had is encouraging airlines to use Palmdale for either passenger or cargo operations, but Velasco said the Palmdale operations remind her of a more congenial time in air travel, when passengers could pull right up to a curb to board an airplane. Scenic Air offers one flight a day to North Las Vegas. MEDIA WATCH: After several weeks of negotiations, all-news radio station KFWB-AM (980) has finally reached an agreement with Villaraigosa to resume its popular “Ask the Mayor” call-in show. The first one will air at 9 a.m. Nov. 1, when the mayor will be questioned by anchor Jack Popejoy and listeners on various issues. The program started with former Mayor Richard Riordan and continued through the four years of former Mayor James Hahn. One difference now, however, is that Villaraigosa said he wants to do the show every three months instead of every month. Daily News Staff Writer Kerry Cavanaugh contributed.

The goal came after just NINE seconds of play in the MacRory Cup play-0ff game between Miller’s St Eunan’s College side and St Patrick’s of Armagh.St Patrick’s recovered well from their horror start and the game finished level at the end of full-time.St Eunan’s rallied in extra-time to secure a brilliant win which sees them advance to the next round of the competition.County Minor star Miller’s goal could now ensure he etches his name in the history books by scoring the fastest ever goal in the association’s illustrious history. However, it was apparently all part of the plan according to Miller who said “When it’s Miller time, it’s Miller time, you can’t do anything to stop it. 🙂 DDTV: IT’S MILLER TIME – HAS ST EUNAN’S COLLEGE STAR SCORED THE QUICKEST GOAL IN GAA HISTORY? was last modified: February 3rd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:DDTVGAAMichael MillerQuickest goal ever?St.Eunan’s Collegelast_img read more

Simplicity versus Complexity

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Designers of energy-efficient homes — especially homes aiming for net-zero energy use — must inevitably grapple with the question of simplicity versus complexity.Residential designers can choose from an array of sophisticated appliances that improve comfort and help homeowners reduce energy use. Examples include heat-recovery ventilators (HRVs), condensing boilers, ground-source heat pumps, solar hot water systems, on-demand water heaters, heat-pump water heaters, photovoltaic modules, and co-generation systems.Most of these devices perform well. However, designers who specify sophisticated appliances need to consider the trade-offs that accompany such hardware:Builders often underestimate the importance of commissioning all HVAC equipment after installation. (“Commissioning” simply means making final adjustments and tuning up equipment to verify that it functions properly.)Unfortunately, most new homes are imperfectly commissioned, leading to one or more of the following errors:HVAC commissioning errors almost always result in needless increases in energy costs. Many HVAC specialists can share horror stories about commissioning errors, running the gamut from irritating to outrageous (for example, air-source heat pumps with electric resistance elements that operate for most of the winter).For four years in the 1990s, I provided capital needs assessments — glorified home inspections — for multi-family residential projects in Vermont. During that time, I inspected hundreds of residential buildings maintained by professional management companies.Almost all of the buildings showed signs of neglected maintenance. Among the problems I saw:There’s no reason to believe that American homeowners are any better at maintenance than the average residential property management company; in fact, they may well be worse. That’s why anyone involved with home inspections can share stories similar to mine.Many of today’s harried homeowners don’t even know where all of their mechanical equipment is located, much less the equipments’ maintenance requirements.Even well intentioned homeowners sometimes decide that it makes economic… center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
