United handed competitive debuts to Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay, while Bastian Schweinsteiger came on in the second half to become the club’s first German player.“The first time you play at Old Trafford is always difficult, but I liked the performance, especially of Darmian,” United manager Louis van Gaal, who was celebrating his 64th birthday, told BT Sport.On goalkeeper David de Gea, dropped amid interest from Real Madrid, Van Gaal added: “He is our best player for the past two seasons, chosen by the fans, so we can’t let him go so easily.”Spurs made a bright start in the Salford sunshine, Christian Eriksen volleying over from Harry Kane’s scooped pass, but they retreated into their shells following Walker’s moment of misfortune.United failed to take full advantage, however, with Young the only player to muster a shot on target, and Eriksen forced Romero — deputising for De Gea — to make two sharp saves in the latter stages.Chelsea launch their title defence at home to Swansea City later on Saturday.Leicester City found themselves on top of the table after Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez inspired them to a 4-2 home win over Sunderland at the King Power Stadium.After Marc Albrighton teed up Jamie Vardy for an 11th-minute header, Mahrez scored with a header from another Albrighton cross and then added a penalty to put Leicester 3-0 up with only 25 minutes gone.– Cabaye strikes –Manchester United’s Memphis Depay (2ndR) celebrates with Wayne Rooney (R) after United take the lead due to an own goal from Tottenham Hotspur’s Kyle Walker at Old Trafford on August 8, 2015.

I can’t be too critical,” said Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, whose side won the Championship last season.“I’m disappointed with the defeat, but looking forward to the rest of the season.”Norwich City, promoted via the play-offs in May, lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace.Wilfried Zaha and Damien Delaney put the visitors in charge before substitute Nathan Redmond hit back for Norwich, but Palace’s star recruit Yohan Cabaye sealed victory in stoppage time.Arsenal host West Ham United and Liverpool travel to Stoke City on Sunday, with last season’s runners-up Manchester City opening their campaign at West Bromwich Albion on Monday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leicester City’s striker Jamie Vardy (2nd R) celebrates after scoring the opening goal during an English Premier League football matchagainst Sunderland at King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on August 8, 2015.

The Government has officially recognised the Church of Haile Selassie I as part of the religious expression of the Rastafarian movement in Jamaica.This follows the passage of the Church of Haile Selassie I (Incorporation and Vesting) Act, 2013 in the Senate on Friday, October 25, after it was approved by the House of Representatives on October 8.Piloting the Bill in the Upper House, Justice Minister, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, noted that the legislative establishment of the Church of Haile Selassie I will further legitimise the faith and religious practices of Rastafarians and their families.Noting that this signals a historic moment in Jamaica, Senator Golding said he is particularly pleased that after spending several years before the Private Bill Committee of Parliament, the legislation “has finally successfully emerged from that process”.The Bill seeks to make provision for the incorporation of the Church of Haile Selassie I and to vest certain assets in the church and to allow it to hold property.Supporting the Bill, Opposition Senator, Robert Montague, said he is pleased that a “home grown” religion, has finally received legal status and state recognition in Jamaica.“The Rastafarian movement has contributed significantly and positively to our history. There have been incidences in the past that would need, maybe, some investigation, and lessons can be learned from that…and to encourage the Minister to reach out to the other sector groups so that they too can be legitimate,” he said.Government Senator, Lambert Brown also gave his support for the Bill, contending that it “has been a long road for the Rastafarians” who have been setting positive examples and have been preaching self-reliance as part of the way forward for the country.“I’m happy to associate with all of the progressive and positive contributions that the Rastafarians (have made to the country). Despite oppression, despite brutality, despite all the negative things said about them by high society, they have led the way. I’m very happy that today, I can participate where we recognise the religious practices of a group of Rastafarians….I’m happy that we are recognising them today and allowing them to be part of the system, because they have been positive,” he said.Among the aims and objectives of the church are to develop the social and administrative mechanisms to organise and centralise the Rastafarian movement according to the operational guidelines, which the federation and the movement see fit; to achieve official recognition for the federation and Rastafarians, leading towards democratic representation; and to provide cultural and political education for members of the federation, Rastafarians and for others, who conscientiously wish to become informed about the movement.The Church of Haile Selassie I was formed in 1987, by Brother Emmanuel Fox, a Rastafarian activist along with other brethrens.

AS Roma sporting director Monchi announced that the club retain “100%” confidence in under-fire coach Eusebio Di FrancescoThe Giallorossi blew a two-goal lead on Saturday at Cagliari to settle for a 2-2 draw, which left them only eighth in the Serie A table after 15 games.It means that Roma’s five-season run of finishing in the top three in the league is in danger of ending with reports in the Italian media suggesting Di Francesco’s future is on the line.The Italian himself declared that his focus remains on the pitch with Monchi now announcing that the club board retain full confidence in him.“Unfortunately I have talked about this too many times: the position of the club has not changed and our confidence [in the coach] is the same,” Monchi told Sky Italia.Maurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“When I have belief in a professional I do not easily change my mind. I am a bit confused when I read things about the directors: that there is a war between us, that I want to walk away, that I’m getting angry. Here we have 100% belief in the coach.“It is the same coach who finished third last season and took us to the Champions League semi-finals – nothing has changed.“Sometimes the responsibility falls on all of us, not just one person: we can’t put everything on the coach.”Roma will face Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic tonight at 18:55 (CET) with the hope of avoiding defeat to book a last-16 spot from Group G.

WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Apple is asking weekly questions to the seven candidates running in contested primaries for the Wilmington/Tewksbury State Representative seat (19th Middlesex).Below, in her own words, are the responses to this week’s questions from candidate Judy O’Connell (D-Wilmington).#15) What you will do at the State House to ensure that our local police and fire departments have what they need to adequately protect us? Do you support a fire substation in North Wilmington? Did you/do you support the construction of the new center fire station in Tewksbury that was approved last year?I have and continue to be supportive of our local police and fire departments. As a taxpayer and prior member of the Wilmington Board of Selectmen, I have supported collective bargaining contracts, capital improvement expenditures and training for both departments throughout the years. As a future State Representative, I will continue to support the public safety officials of the 19th Middlesex District in any manner possible through state funding and programs that will ensure at the end of their shifts our public safety officials have the greatest chance of going home to their families safely. It has been an absolute travesty regarding the increase in police officers being shot and injured and in some cases killed. I would support state legislation that is focused on protecting the men and women who serve and protect us every day in our communities. For both police and fire, I would be open and supportive of state training initiatives that focus on the training, health and welfare of our public safety officials.Regarding the North Wilmington substation, I truly believe one is necessary more now than ever. The growth and development in Wilmington continues and there is a definite need in the north side of town especially with the train tracks near Elia’s and off of Salem Street. I fully recognize this substation will come with some upfront costs relative to the build and an increase in staffing, capital equipment, potential overtime costs, etc. However, I think this substation is vital and frankly long overdue. As a State Representative, I will be open and supportive of a project such as this assuming it is well planned out with fiscal responsibility and present and future needs in mind. As a State Representative, I would also be committed to seeking any available state funding sources to assist with this project.Additionally, I would support a new center fire station in Tewksbury that was approved last year. The people of the community have spoken and this project is coming forward because there is a need. Once again, I am very receptive and supportive of doing what is necessary for our 19th Middlesex District public safety. If this is a need and the current infrastructure will not be sustainable for the foreseeable future, I believe it makes sense to consider construction now as construction costs, financing options, etc. continue to be on the rise. Therefore, the project you don’t do today will definitely cost you more tomorrow. In closing, I will say that the police and fire departments of both communities within the 19th Middlesex District are the life line for all of us to turn to in a time of need. These fine men and women deserve our respect and our attention in ensuring they all have what they need to do their jobs to ensure our continued public safety as well as their own.#16) The Vietnam War Moving Wall recently visited Wilmington. It was a sobering reminder of what the men and women in our armed forces are willing to sacrifice to preserve our freedom. What will you do at the State House to support our local veterans and veterans statewide? What, if anything, have you done as a private citizen and/or locally elected official that shows a commitment to veterans? Do you personally have any family that serves/served?As a patriotic person and as a prior Selectman for the Town of Wilmington, I have always been supportive of our Veterans. As you have stated, these men and women in our armed forces have and continue to be willing to sacrifice to preserve our freedom. These people are the true heroes among us and they deserve to be respected and cared for in the most appropriate manners possible.As a State Representative, I will continue to support the Veterans’ programs throughout the state from VA services, to state hospital services, to Veterans’ housing initiatives, to social and emotional programs and funding and the list goes on. The needs for our Veterans is ever changing and spans across many subject areas. These brave men and women are often called upon to “unplug” from their current lives inclusive of their family and friends and go to foreign lands to serve and protect the American freedoms so many of us enjoy. It’s important as a society and for the next State Representative for the 19th Middlesex District to be cognizant of these facts and help these community heroes integrate back into their daily routine upon their return right here at home. This is not always an easy process as there are often health care needs and costs, mental health needs, etc. that our Veterans need help with as part of this re-integration and it’s imperative that local cities and towns and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts continue to provide assistance across all these matters. The incidence of PTSD and suicide among Veterans is continuing to drastically rise and as a state and within our local communities we need to continue our care and concerns for these most deserving people who truly need our help. I am committed to this personally and as a future State Representative for many reasons and simply stated because it’s the right thing to do!As a prior elected official for some time I have always supported any Veterans’ related matter that came before the Board of Selectmen such as discussions about a Veteran’s related event and the list goes on. I can say that all of my colleagues on the Board of Selectmen have and continue to support our Veterans and the Veterans’ Services provided by Lou Cimaglia and his team in Wilmington. As a private citizen, I have attended fundraisers for Veterans, I have supported the Disabled Veterans and I have provided transportation for a friend and family to the various VA facilities when called upon. I have also been a supporter of the Wilmington Local Heroes and iPods for Wounded Veterans as I proudly wear my red, white and blue bracelet that was made for me and purchased at the Wilmington Senior Center a few months ago. Also, I was happy to volunteer for the Vietnam War Moving Wall that was just here last week. I attended multiple nights of ceremonies and I was truly moved by the whole experience. As Lou Cimaglia said it best, “the attendance during the time the wall was here shows that Wilmington doesn’t forget and will never forget our Veterans and more specifically our Vietnam Veterans.”Regarding family members who have served in the military, I have many who have served and also have been residents of the 19th Middlesex District. I am so proud of their service to our country and they will forever have my respect and admiration for wearing a military uniform. My great grandparents, grandparents, cousins and brother have all served in the armed forces. Also, I have step parents and in-laws who have also served in the military. My father-in-law from Tewksbury was a soldier and part of the 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam who I respect tremendously as a human being, a family man, a friend and for his service to our country. He is also my personal historian who shared the facts about this war and history in general which I have so much appreciated throughout the years. In closing, I want to once again express my unwavering support for our Veterans and my commitment to advocating for as much funding, benefits and support as possible for the brave men and women of our armed forces both past and present who serve our country.(NOTE: Do you have a question for the candidates?

Mobile World Congress 2019 • Snap serious selfies with Samsung’s Galaxy A30 and A50 See All Samsung’s Galaxy A30 was revealed Monday. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET Samsung announced a pair of fresh phones in its midrange Galaxy A series during Mobile World Congress on Monday.The Galaxy A50 and A30 are the initial models for 2019, and both feature 6.4-inch 1,080×2,340-pixel Super AMOLED Infinity-U displays, with dimensions of 158.5 by 74.7 by 7.7mm.The differences start with the cameras — the A50 has a 25-megapixel camera on the front, with 25-, 5- and 8-megapixel options on the back (continuing the triple-rear camera trend). The A30 has a 16-megapixel one on the front, and 16- and 5-megapixel cameras at the rear. Memory-wise, you can get the A50 with 4 or 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB internal storage. The A30 comes with either 3 or 4GB RAM and 32 or 64 GB internal storage.The A30 has 16- and 5-megapixel cameras on the back. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET The A50 is available in four colors: black, white, blue and coral (which is apparently “inspired by scattered light”). It also comes equipped with on-screen fingerprint unlocking.The A series may not be Samsung’s flagship Galaxy line (the S series still holds that crown), but still offers full access to its ecosystem — so you can use Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, Bixby and other features. Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone “People are changing the way they connect, and their smartphones need to keep up,” said DJ Koh, head of Samsung’s mobile business, in a release. “Our new Galaxy A Series offers improvements to the essential features that will support these live interactions, with diverse options to meet their ever-changing needs.”We’ve reached out to Samsung for details on pricing and a release date.Last week, Samsung unveiled its much-hyped flexible Galaxy Fold and a quartet of Galaxy S10 models.First published at 2:35 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:55 a.m. PT: Adds more details.

Culture Tags 2 SXSW 2019 See All reading • SXSW 2019: The weirdest sights from the world’s largest culture fest It’s not just the marketing ploys that bring the weird to SXSW, though. It’s that sense that the festival could be a home for just about anything.Lush Cosmetics brought an interactive bath bomb pop up built out of a cargo container to show off a new app. My colleagues and SXSW pals Chris Monroe and John Kim came across an apparatus dads can use to breast feed their babies when Mom’s not around. Meditation app Calm just happened to have a sloth at its booth. Meanwhile over at Sony’s WOW Studio, a small tribe of robots, part of the art installation Das Fremde, developed their own language and, no doubt, spent the entire time talking crap about everyone who stopped to gawk.Elsewhere: There were 3,000 pounds of cheese ready for attendee consumption, and mysterious signs on telephone poles about a lost unicorn. And you know what’s supremely weird? Sitting through a Q&A session with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and suddenly realizing Bill Nye the Science Guy is at the mic asking a question about climate change.Somewhere between sliding into an avocado-shaped ball pit and banging on some bongo drums in the dark, I chalked it all up to a slogan that says it all.As the bumper sticker goes, keep Austin weird. SXSW 2019 served up 3,000 pounds of cheese and now I don’t feel so good At SXSW, Sony’s WOW Studio sees a robot future that’s groovy, not apocalyptic Land O’Lakes’ Copernicus Project: Humans aren’t the center of the food universe Mar 20 • Us review: Jordan Peele’s horror flick holds up a dark mirror to Get Out • And a Merry Apocalypse to you, too. Amy E. Price/Getty There I was, trying to scarf down a grilled cheese sandwich from a food truck outside the Austin Convention Center, when a pack of Satanic nuns rolled by to wish everyone a “Merry Apocalypse.”In almost any other time or place, this would be an unusual occurrence. Weird, you might say. But at SXSW, an event that mostly defies thematic categorization, weird is always in bountiful supply.Film, music, social issues, politics, business — SXSW packs a lot into 10 days. Sure, you get red carpet world premieres and blockbusting marquee names, but you also find the unexpected roaming around the streets that surround the convention center. On Saturday, I looked up from my phone to catch a procession of kids with masks, beating a drum, promoting the adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, premiering March 16 at SXSW. Or, there were the two young women walking around in silver alien costumes, with green-painted faces. For what reason? I couldn’t tell you.And if angels and demons cruised by on the sidewalk, they were not just heralding the End Times (like the Chattering Order of St. Beryl), but herding people toward Amazon Prime Video’s Garden of Earthly Delights, an interactive experience for the upcoming show Good Omens. Granted, there’s a measure of this weirdness that’s manufactured. Guerilla marketing campaigns and SXSW go together like mac and cheese. I am, however, willing to opt-in for this over a billboard, any day.
