QPR fans on Twitter react to Holloway’s comments about Eze

first_imgEbere Eze has impressed for QPR in recent games © Joe Giddens/PA WireSome QPR fans on Twitter have been critical of comments made by manager Ian Holloway about Ebere Eze.The young forward impressed again for Rangers on Monday, scoring their third goal in a 4-1 win against Norwich.Holloway praised Eze but has continued to insist that the teenager must improve the defensive side of his game.Holloway has also suggested that although Eze currently operates mainly in the number 10 role, in the longer term he could play out wide.Some Rangers fans felt Holloway got it spot on, but others were unhappy with his comments. Why does Olli have to come out with comments like this? As he whistles to the song “All about me…”— Mark (@M_ImpsW12) April 3, 2018No no no no no no no no no NO!!!! https://t.co/BtciOgJnCK— Ash. (@QPR_AMA) April 3, 2018Things like this really annoy me.We have an absolute talent, the best on the ball since Adel, and we are trying to make him tackle back and battle!!That ISNT his game.Let him express himself, play to his strengths and put a Derry like player in to tackle for him!!! https://t.co/TmQwvG3HTI— Jeff (@JabHookNQPR) April 3, 2018If Holloway remains in charge he’ll ruin Eze. Stuff like this is why we should part ways with him in the summer. #QPR https://t.co/9oIeZvPICh— King of Zamunda (@HRHJaffeJoffer) April 3, 2018 #QPR Keep the criticism / coaching/ teaching on the training pitch please Ollie.

Qantas to launch the world’s longest air routes

first_imgAustralia’s Qantas will enter the growing field of the ultra-long range operators when it takes delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 late next year.At the IATA AGM in Dublin the airline’s CEO Alan Joyce told AirlineRatings.com that airline is looking at “London-Perth, Sydney-Chicago and Melbourne-Dallas” as the initial routes for the 787.The airline will shortly enter into discussions with the relevant state governments and airport on support packages for its planned ultra-long-range flights.Both Sydney and Melbourne airports and their respective state governments have proved aggressive competitors in seeking new airlines and new routes to bolster tourism and business. Qantas is also looking to make Perth a hub for non-stop operations to London drawing traffic from Adelaide and possibly Melbourne with a tight turnaround in Perth.The Qantas 787-9 will have three cabins – business, premium economy and economy.It is likely that the business class will be modelled on the airline’s very successful business class suites on its A330s.Mr Gareth Evans chief executive of Qantas International said that the 787 would be “very much a premium aircraft” for the long routes.However economy class would have extra legroom.Qantas’ order is for 8  Boeing 787-9s, with 45 options and purchase rights.The first four will be delivered in FY18 and the balance in the following year.Mr Joyce also told AirlineRatings.com that the airline was looking at the 777X series as well as long range variants of the A350-900.last_img read more

The Two Questions You Need to Ask Yourself to be Productive

first_imgYour present cannot in any way impact your past, but your past can—and will—impact your future.Nothing you do today is going to change your past. Our perception of time flows only in one direction. There is an old saying that we are “too soon old and too late wise.” There is no way to reclaim lost time or relive a moment in time where you made a decision you now want to take back. The past is immutable.What you do today can and will impact your future. A few minutes from now, reading this post will be part of your past (whether or not it affects your future will be determined by your decision to act on what you learn or your hitting the delete button and hoping the idea fades away quickly). This concept is why I am full hot on the concept of Future You and Present You.We only perceive time as the present moment. It is always “now,” and “now” is forever fading further into your past. Present You is the result of your history, events large and small, significant and insignificant. If Present You wants something you don’t have, you have to do something now so that it manifests in your future. What you are doing now is creating Future You, for good or for ill, making the best strategy for being more, doing more, having more, and contributing more is to allow Future You to decide what Present You does now. What Do You Want?Your single, finite, non-renewable resource is time. There is an abundance of other resources available to you, many of them renewable, like your energy level and money (both of which we perceive as being scarce when they are abundant). Your time is not renewable, and once spent, it is gone forever. That being true, all you have is time.There are two questions you need to ask and answer. The first question is: “What do you want?” I have seen statistics that suggest almost no one has written goals or a plan for their (one) life. Without knowing what you want in the future, it is easy for Present You to make poor decisions about the future towards which you are most certainly racing. You need to define what Future You is going to want, not what Present You wants.The second question you need to answer is: “What should I be doing with my time now?” You will have a higher resolution focus by answering the first question before answering the second.

USOC Bid Still Boston Strong

first_imgREDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee are sticking with Boston as a candidate for the 2024 Olympics, knowing full well that getting the city to the starting line in this contest could be as tough as actually landing the games.The USOC board met June 30 to discuss the Boston bid, which has been troubled by tepid polling data and opponents who, among other things, don’t want taxpayers footing the bill for a huge international event.Thoughts that the board might turn elsewhere or pull the plug altogether were put on hold. They were replaced by a show of support for the Boston 2024 team, now under new management, along with a not-so-subtle nod to the reality that the city needs to find a support level among its residents well above the current low to mid-40 percent range.“We want to see a positive trend, and the sooner the better,” said USOC Chairman Larry Probst, who was joined by CEO Scott Blackmun and the leaders of the Boston bid at a news conference.“We want to see it get to 50 percent relatively soon, and ultimately get to the mid-60s range, certainly before the vote of the IOC.”That vote comes in 2017, but the key date is Sept. 15, 2015, which is when all cities must declare themselves candidates. Probst made reference to “circling back” with the Boston leadership in the next few weeks, and both Probst and Blackmun said they’d be monitoring the polling numbers carefully.Boston joins Paris, Rome and Hamburg, Germany as the officially declared candidates.Had the board wanted more certainty, it could have ditched Boston and looked to Los Angeles — an awkward and difficult choice that may have netted a better final result because Los Angeles has hosted the Olympics twice and there has been talk that some IOC members would like a “safer” American choice.Instead, the USOC said it was all-in with Boston, which unveiled its new “Bid 2.0” to the public on June 29.“I’ve seen their presentation five times in the last six days, and each time, it keeps getting better,” Probst said.So, the board decided the right thing to do was to see how that plan plays out before simply walking away.The $4.6 billion blueprint was filled with before-missing specifics about venues and cost. Probst and Blackmun said they were impressed with the man who will oversee it: Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca, who replaced John Fish as chairman nearly six weeks ago.“We’ve had so many conversations with Scott that he hasn’t had time to talk to anyone else,” Pagliuca deadpanned, after Blackmun was asked if anyone at the USOC had, in fact, had conversations with Los Angeles.The answer: An emphatic “No.”“We’re focused exclusively with Boston,” Blackmun said. For now, at least.A referendum on the Olympics is set for next year in Massachusetts and Boston 2024 leaders have vowed to pull out of the race if it doesn’t win.That’s why the polling trends are so crucial, and that’s why the “announcement” certainly doesn’t end this debate, but rather, kicks it down the road.Much of the handwringing in Boston has been about public funding. Pagliuca described an intricate, $128 million insurance plan that gave Boston “five levels of protection” against cost overruns, contractor bailouts and the sort of things the IOC wants guarantees for before awarding its premier event to any city.“Nothing in life is risk-free,” Pagliuca said. “I could walk off the podium and trip on the carpet. But this is five layers of protection. People will look at it and say the risk is limited and small, but the reward is great.”His task is to get the word out about the 4,100 construction jobs, 7,000 new apartment units and $362 million in tax revenue that a Boston Olympics could generate.He has a big sales job ahead. Shortly after the news conference, the opposition group “No Boston Olympics” tweeted pictures of residents at a rally. Many held up signs saying schools and infrastructure were higher priorities than hosting the games.“Citizens want better schools, better transit, not a 3wk, taxpayer-backed event in 2024,” the tweet said.All this is set against a backdrop that indicates now should be a great time for the United States to be bidding.The U.S. hasn’t hosted a Summer Games since 1996. An Associated Press-GfK poll from last week found 89 percent of Americans would like to see the an Olympics on home turf, though the support dwindled to 61 percent when respondents were asked if they would want the games in their local area.“I love seeing those polling numbers,” Blackmun said. “They speak to the fact that, as a nation, we want to see the Olympic Games in the United States. … The games always create questions in the city where they’ve been chosen to be held.”(EDDIE PELLS, AP National Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
