Coach doubts Chelsea man will agree move to Brazil

first_imgSantos head coach Muricy Ramalho has appeared to suggest that Florent Malouda is highly unlikely to move to Brazil.The France international, whose wife is Brazilian, is reported to be considering offers from a number of the South American country’s top clubs, including Vasco da Gama.Malouda has been tipped to leave Chelsea this summer, but Ramalho told local media the player’s wage demands mean a move away from Europe looks improbable.“Malouda was offered to us. He is a very interesting player, but you get scared when they tell you their demands,” he is quoted as saying.“They say they are in crisis in Europe, but they spend so much money on transfers there. He was offered to us, but when you think about his wages, it gets hard.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Lightworks for Windows: Your Next Video Editing App?

first_imgAfter months of anticipation, Lightworks is out of beta and sees it’s full Windows release.Although many new editors may not recognize the Lightworks name, they’ll surely be familiar with some of the popular films cut on this video editing application – Hugo, The Kings’s Speech, The Departed, Braveheart and Pulp Fiction to name a few.  Lightworks was originally created in 1989, during the dawn of digital non-linear editing, but when Avid and Final Cut Pro usage exploded, the hardware/software based Lightworks took a backseat.That may soon change though, with the recent release of Lightworks for Windows, an open-source video editing application “designed for editors, by editors.”  The new Lightworks is a full featured video editing application that includes the following features:Drag and drop timelineResolution and codec independent (mix and match formats)AutoSync trimmingMixed format multicam editingSupport for 3D / stereoscopic workflowsPowerful metadata and media management toolsAutosave projectsA dedicated editing console is one of the foundations of the Lightworks system.  All of the well-known feature films to date that were cut on Lightworks have utilized this editing console.  A paddle and hotkeys allow you to use the console to complete most common editing functions.  It can be purchased separately from the Lightworks store for $2,800.Lightworks seems to really excel in project sharing capabilities with the ability to share media, bins and edits with controlled permissions.   These realtime collaboration features work with any network storage, and make Lightworks a good solution for larger post production environments.Lightworks for Windows is free, but a pro version is also available for $60. Lightworks Pro offers additional features, format support and inclusion in the Lightworks Pro Community.  Be on the lookout for Mac and Linux versions…slated to be released later in 2012.  As many editors transition from Final Cut Pro 7 to other applications it will be interesting to see if Lightworks has what it takes to shake up the video editing market.Get more information and download Lightworks at lwks.comlast_img read more

5 things to watch for between Ohio State and Western Michigan

OSU junior running back Ezekiel Elliott (15) falls to the ground after a carry in a game against Northern Illinois on Sept. 19 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 20-13. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorComing off another rather unconvincing win against Northern Illinois, Ohio State will have a chance to redeem itself on Saturday against Western Michigan. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. at Ohio Stadium.Here are five things that The Lantern’s sports editors Ryan Cooper and Kevin Stankiewicz will be on the lookout for during the game. Check back after the game to see how these points played out.The discombobulated offense’s turnover problemsThrough three games, OSU has turned the ball over a total of eight times. In all of college football, there are only eight teams that have more turnovers than the Buckeyes.Coach Urban Meyer expressed his concern with that statistic during the week, calling the rate at which his team has turned it over “alarming.”Against Virginia Tech, OSU had three of them — two fumbles and an interception by redshirt junior Cardale Jones. The Hokies scored on each of the ensuing possessions, totaling 17 points.The Buckeyes didn’t cough it up against Hawaii in Week 2, but against NIU the turnover problems reappeared as OSU had five.But unlike against VT, points off turnovers were less of an issue as the Huskies only managed 10 points because twice OSU’s defense forced an NIU to turn the ball over on the ensuing possession.Meyer said the coaching staff will focus during the week on fixing the issue of turnovers.It will be interesting to see if the Buckeyes were able to address the problem enough during practice, as a team on a quest to repeat as national champions cannot afford to be giving opponent’s extra possessions, especially with Big Ten play on the horizon.Will Elliott’s explosiveness reappear?Junior running back Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for over 100 yards in all three contests in 2015 but the preseason Heisman Trophy hopeful has yet to look like the same player who carried OSU on his back during last year’s postseason games by running for over 200 yards thrice.The only hint of that player came on his first run of the season by way of an 80-yard touchdown. But other than that one play, Elliott’s explosiveness has been kept in check.Sans the 80-yarder, the St. Louis native’s season long rush is only 13 yards.With Elliott, it is more of question of when — not if — he regains his form from 2014. Fortunately for the Buckeyes, this weekend might be a good chance for him as Western Michigan’s run defense has been dreadful.WMU ranks 109th in the nation in run defense. Opponents have been torching the Broncos on the ground. Michigan State had 196 yards in Week 1, but that pales in comparison to the 413 Georgia Southern racked up the following game.So, as for when Elliott’s explosiveness will resurface, Saturday could be the day. Who will Jones be able to throw the ball to?Three.That’s the number of receptions the players on OSU’s roster listed as wide receivers and not named Michael Thomas have this season.While the redshirt junior Thomas has done his part despite getting the defense’s top assignment with 10 catches for 158 yards and two scores, the Buckeyes have had an extremely tough time finding any other options.Redshirt senior Corey Smith has two catches for 15 yards and redshirt freshman Johnnie Dixon has a 29-yarder.Beyond that, receivers such as redshirt freshmen Parris Campbell and Terry McLaurin have given Meyer nothing in terms of catching the ball. Campbell, who had two drops in the opening game, is also expected to miss at least a week with a leg injury suffered early against Northern Illinois.When sophomore Noah Brown went down with a broken leg before the season, many speculated about how thin OSU’s receiving corps might be.This has to be considered worse than imagined, however, and is a big reason for the offensive struggles thus far.While players like sophomore H-back Curtis Samuel and redshirt senior tight end Nick Vannett have kept the offense clinging to life, a true wideout not named Thomas stepping up could be the only true remedy.Can Braxton find his early effectiveness?After an electrifying start to the season for H-back Braxton Miller, the redshirt senior has seen his usefulness dwindle each week.Against VT, Miller caught two passes for 78 yards and a score and ran six times for 62 yards and another touchdown. He was undoubtedly the offensive star of that contest, and his spin move around a defender on his rushing touchdown was the highlight of the week.The following week against Hawaii, Miller actually had more touches, but with much less effectiveness. Meyer had his rushes come out of direct snap runs, and his catches came mostly on shovel passes across the middle. In all, he finished with two catches for 16 yards and eight runs for 57 yards, but did not find the end zone.Then last week against NIU, Miller had just seven yards on four carries. He was targeted once by Jones, but a miscommunicated route led to the interception that caused Meyer to pull Jones out of the game.As discussed above, the OSU offense is struggling to stay afloat from a major lack of playmakers. Miller could be the answer to Meyer’s prayers, but whether it’s because of the learning curve of a new position or just not being used correctly, he has not been a big help in OSU’s two home games. Before beginning Big Ten play next week, the Buckeyes will need the former quarterback to rediscover his playmaking abilities.Who wants the sack lead?OSU’s defensive line is arguably the best in the nation, with nine different players already being involved in at least one sack. But with only so many hits on the quarterback to go around, no one is off to a huge individual start.Three players — redshirt sophomore linebacker Darron Lee, redshirt freshman defensive end Sam Hubbard and redshirt sophomore defensive end Tyquan Lewis — have 2.5 sacks each to tie for the team lead.Lewis paced the way early with 1.5 sacks against VT, Lee pulled in the season-high of two sacks against Hawaii and Hubbard was credited with 1.5 against NIU.Lurking in the wings as well is junior Joey Bosa. The defensive end was suspended for the opener, had his first sack of the year called back due to penalty against Hawaii and combined with Hubbard for a sack last week.While Bosa commands double teams on every play — and quite often triple teams — it is hard to rule out a guy who had 13.5 sacks last year for putting his name in the sack-lead hat. At the very least, Bosa’s presence makes it easier for other players to get through the offensive line, something Hubbard said Bosa does not let him forget. read more

Mens Hockey No 15 Ohio State uses strong defense to secure OT

Ohio State junior forward handles a faceoff during Ohio State’s 2-1 overtime win against Minnesota Friday, Dec. 8. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternRedshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo had arguably his worst series of the season last week against Penn State, giving up nine goals in two games while not looking like the net-minder who places among the leaders at his position in nearly every statistic this year.Tonight, he showed why he’s been the backbone of this defensive-minded Buckeyes team.No. 15 Ohio State (9-4-4, 4-4-1-0 in Big Ten) needed all 33 saves from Romeo in a tight 2-1 overtime victory at the Schottenstein Center Friday against No. 7 Minnesota.“When someone comes down and you’re not scared that [Romeo] going to let one in it’s always nice,” senior forward Christian Lampasso said. “We did a great job blocking shots today … so it’s not just [Romeo] playing good defensively it’s our whole team, but it’s definitely good having someone so solid in the net.”Lampasso scored the winner in the extra frame for Ohio State after he found the puck on his stick in front of the net from teammate junior forward Dakota Joshua to give the Buckeyes three key points in the Big Ten standings.“Playing against Minnesota, they’re always hard to play against,” Lampasso said. “Any time you can beat a top 10 team it’s always a big W.”Ohio State maintained a 1-0 lead until late in the third period, where sophomore forward Rem Pitlick scored on an odd-man rush to break Romeo’s shutout and force overtime.The Buckeyes had yet to score in the extra period this season, with all four previous efforts eventually moving to a shootout, but Lampasso broke that streak, and gave his team a much-needed boost.“It’s nice to get a couple of bounces there at the end, but you have to work for those, and I just liked our mentality,” head coach Steve Rohlik said. “We kind of gave up the lead late there, but our team could have folded and we went the other way, overtime we had a couple good looks, and it was nice to finish it off.”The Buckeyes opened the scoring in the first period on a power play goal by sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski that beat junior goalie Eric Schierhorn in the top corner. The goal was set up by a series of passes that led to Laczynski being all alone, and he buried his opportunity. Junior forward Mason Jobst and senior forward Matthew Weis earned assists on the play.The assist gave Jobst 100 career points for Ohio State in only 91 games.“It means a lot for sure,” Jobst said. “It’s a milestone I wasn’t sure I was going to get when I got here, but I’ve been surrounded by a lot of great players, last year, this year freshmen year, and the coaching staff has put me in a good spot to be successful.”The second period ended scoreless, but there were strong chances on both sides of the ice. Redshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo made some big saves while on the penalty kill, keeping Ohio State ahead despite being outshot by the Golden Gophers 16-11 in the period.Minnesota controlled most of the third period, and it was up to Romeo to maintain the thin margin, which he did until the Pitlick goal late.Ohio State went a perfect 5-for-5 on the penalty kill, which Rohlik said was a major factor in tonight’s game.“We scored a big power play goal, and at the end of the day it’s a difference,” Rohlik said. “I mean our kill was a bend but don’t break, I don’t think they had a power play goal and we had one, so when you look at it at the end of the game special teams is a key.”The Buckeyes move just a point behind Minnesota after the win, and the victory marks only the second win for Ohio State at home this season.“When you have a good team that believes in themselves, you’re going to have some good finishes and we did that tonight,” Rohlik said.Game 2 puck drop for Ohio State and Minnesota is Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Inzaghi proud of Lazios performance

first_imgLazio manager Simone Inzaghi says he’s lucky to have so many attacking choices after his team crushed SPAL 4-1 at home on Sunday.Lazio put the disappointment of losing 3-0 at home to Inter Milan behind them by demolishing SPAL 4-1 at the Stadio Olimpico.“We put in a good performance against a very good side,” Inzaghi told Football Italia.“The lads did well to get back on track after the disappointment of the Inter game.SS Lazio v AS Roma - TIM CupMatch Preview: SS Lazio vs AS Roma Boro Tanchev – August 31, 2019 Lazio will host Roma to the Olimpico Stadium in the first Derby della Capitale of the 2019-20 Serie A campaign.“Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile performed well, but so did Joaquin Correa when he came off the bench. I am fortunate to have so many choices in attack.”It was a reunion between brothers Sergej and Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, but the Lazio midfielder has been less than impressive this season.“I expect more quality and quantity from everyone, not just Sergej. Last season he scored 13-14 goals and that raised expectations perhaps too much, but he is improving after the new experience of the World Cup affected his pre-season.”last_img read more

Dr Hospedales speaks on issues faced in Caribbean countries

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, June 24, 2016 – We really need to lose some weight, most of us anyway and we really need to quit over eating…. It is a major focus at this year’s Health & Research Conference which features some of the sharpest minds in the Caribbean.Dr. James Hospedales in a one on one with Magnetic Media pulled no punches and agreed that gaining wealth as Caribbean people has made us massive consumers and in addition to having more, we are eating more, often to our detriment and in the case of diabetes, to our death.  “The typical pattern of a country that starts to get some wealth, is people want to consume more, they want to drive a nice car, and those kinds of consumption patterns lead to problems.  So yes sometimes wealth, unless it’s accompanied by a really open eyed view, a wait a minute, we’re getting wealth here, we have to watch these things”.  Dr Hospedales is the Executive Director of CARPHA and said the Turks and Caicos on Thursday presented research conducted here in the TCI on childhood obesity, he also said while no nation has figured out how to beat diabetes as a whole, he believes our smaller Caribbean countries can change that.  “So one of my aspirations is that some of us in the Caribbean should be the first, because we have a serious problem, we can’t afford it.  The problem is not so much the people are greedy, the problem is the environment that we’re in.  You’re bombarded with advertising, the labeling is not very clear, the choices you have in places, the pricing, the availability.  So a lot of things really conspire against us, and give us what we call a  obesogenic environment, where all influences are driving you to consume more that you need.” Meetings for the Health & Research conference, which is for the first time being held in the TCI, will continue into Saturday at Beaches.last_img read more
