first_imgDanny Welbeck was just the one topic that dominated conversation after the Europa League where Arsenal had a draw with Sporting CP.During the first half, the England international was stretchered off in obvious suffering at Emirates Stadium, and this is what his boss Unai Emery said as quoted by the club’s official website:“It’s the worst news tonight, this injury. It’s clear that we are with him in these minutes. He was working well and he was having a good match. He had some chances too. His injury was with the mentality of the players.”“They [saw] it was a big injury. When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen. You don’t want it to happen but this is our profession.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“Yes, now he is at the hospital. The news is that we are going to wait – but we think it’s a serious injury.”Arsenal boss also admitted that his players struggled to shake off Danny’s injury in their mind to be able to play well.“When one player has an injury like that, every player on the pitch they look at this injury. First, it’s in your mind – you think for the player.”“But I think the players were concentrated on the match and we forgot this injury the next minute on the pitch. But when the match finishes, the first thing they did was ask for him.”last_img read more

first_imgWe will tell you the reasons Ivan Rakitic needs to be sold by FC Barcelona next summer, it appears that his time at the Catalan club has passed.Even though Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic is still one of FC Barcelona’s top players, we truly believe that the club needs to sell him next summer and we are going to discuss the reasons we think this is the best option for both parts.The Croatian midfielder is arguably one of his country’s most decorated players alongside Luka Modric, he was an essential part of the National Team that reached a historic World Cup final last summer that they lost against France in Russia.At club level, Ivan Rakitic has practically never stopped winning and growing as a football professional. After starting with Swiss club FC Basel, a young Rakitic was scouted by German side Schalke 04 and they could buy him for €5 million back in 2007.During his time in the Bundesliga, the Croatian midfielder quickly started developing the skills that eventually took him to the Spanish La Liga after Sevilla decided to pay a low €2.5 million to the German club and that’s when his career really started to take off.Ivan Rakitic came to Spain for a long time, and it’s been 9 years already since the first time he arrived.”Sería un gran sueño para mí poder volver a jugar con la camiseta del #SevillaFC”, dijo hace menos de un año un Ivan Rakitic al que ahora, tras llegar Frenkie de Jong, empiezan a ver en la Ciudad Condal fuera del Barça https://t.co/vNu2MesTBi— Carlos Pérez (@carlosperezED) January 25, 2019With the Andalusian club, Ivan Rakitic’s football really started to flourish and his last year with them was the perfect season that called the attention of major clubs like Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, and FC Barcelona.With Cesc Fabregas leaving the Catalan club after a failed attempt to succeed there, Barcelona’s number ‘4’ jersey was suddenly open and the Spanish giants were the ones who made the biggest offer for the player.They paid a reported €21 million in 2014, he came alongside Luis Suarez on the same season and he made an immediate impact. Since then, Ivan Rakitic has completely taken charge of the position as one of the most creative midfielders in the club.Since he came to the Catalan club, Rakitic has contributed to the club’s success and won a total of 12 trophies which include three La Liga titles, one Champions League, four Copa del Rey titles, two Spanish Supercups, one UEFA Supercup, and one FIFA Club World Cup.But the new generations are coming and Ivan Rakitic has already won everything at Barcelona, it is time for him to leave room for other great players and also attempt to leave a good amount of money for his transfer to the club that gave him everything.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.Con la llegada de nuevos fichajes, canteras y malos partidos de Rakitic. ¿Debería el Barça venderlo y confiar en los jóvenes? pic.twitter.com/LDxEAT3CAP— Soydelbarca_ (@Soydelbarca2) January 25, 2019Even though he is already considered a veteran, Ivan Rakitic still has several good years of great football on his boots and the Catalan club should get a good deal for a World Cup runner-up who has won everything at Barcelona.Frenkie de Jong’s arrival is another reason why he needs to leave, his presence could easily prevent the Dutch young player to grow to become the player that everybody imagines he will transform into someday.The number ‘4’ that Ivan Rakitic wears right now is one that fits Frenkie perfectly, a mythical number at FC Barcelona that not any player can wear and seems destined to belong to De Jong once he comes to the club next summer.All the signs point to Ivan Rakitic leaving FC Barcelona, the only problem here is that manager Ernesto Valverde would oppose his arrival but the club already thinks that even the manager could leave soon if the results don’t come his way throughout the current season.We all know that the main target this season is the Champions League, Valverde will surely resign if he doesn’t win the title and this will leave the open door for players like Rakitic next summer.The player already told Estadio Deportivo that his dream is to return to Sevilla.We keep going 💪⚽️! ➕3️⃣✅ #ForçaBarça 🔵🔴 pic.twitter.com/xXXS8S84wY— Ivan Rakitic (@ivanrakitic) January 20, 2019Which club do you think could be better for Ivan Rakitic after FC Barcelona?

first_img KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Zoo Tuesday announced the confirmed pregnancy, via artificial insemination, of one of its six southern white rhinos.The mother-to-be, 10-year-old Amani, is the zoo’s second southern white rhino to become pregnant this year. The pregnancies of Amani and Victoria will assist ongoing research to genetically recover the southern white rhino’s closest genetic relative, the northern white rhino, from the brink of extinction, zoo officials said.Zoo researchers hope to use stem cells and preserved cells from a dozen northern white rhinos to birth a rhino calf in the next 10 to 15 years, using southern white rhinos as surrogates. If the plan proves successful, researchers could attempt similar assisted reproduction techniques with the critically endangered Sumatran and Javan rhinos. Only two northern white rhinos, both female, remain on Earth.“Many months of intensive animal training, reproductive research and veterinary care resulted in these two ongoing pregnancies from artificial insemination,” said Dr. Barbara Durrant, Zoo Global’s endowed director of reproductive sciences. “We are following Victoria and Amani closely, continuing to gather critical information about early fetal development and the endocrinology of rhino pregnancy. The team is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our very special babies!”The two pregnancies are the result of artificial insemination using sperm from a male southern white rhino. Victoria’s May pregnancy was the first successful artificial insemination in the zoo’s 102-year history. Rhino gestation lasts around 16 to 18 months, so researchers expect the two calves to be born in mid to late 2019.Photo credit: San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research Posted: September 18, 2018 San Diego Zoo announces pregnancy of Southern White Rhino KUSI Newsroom September 18, 2018last_img read more

first_imgHAWTHORNE (CNS) – Hawthorne-based SpaceX made more history Monday when it successfully launched a rocket carrying five dozen satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base, marking the first time a Falcon 9 rocket has been used in three space missions.SpaceX has worked for years to perfect the reuse of its rockets to slash the cost of space missions, landing the first stage of the rockets either back on land near the original launch site or on barges floating in the ocean. It has often re-used the first stages of Falcon 9 rockets, but Monday’s launch was the first time the same rocket was used a third time.The rocket in Monday’s launch was previously used for satellite launches in May and August of this year. After launch, the first stage of the rocket made a successful landing on a barge — named “Just Read the Instructions” — floating in the Pacific Ocean, potentially setting the stage for a fourth use of the rocket.Monday’s launch occurred around 10:34 a.m. on a mission dubbed Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express. The rocket carried 64 satellites of various uses on what was billed as a “ridesharing” mission.Organized by Spaceflight Industries, the satellites aboard the rocket come from 34 organizations and will be released into a “sun-synchronous low Earth orbit.”“It includes 15 microsats and 49 cubesats from both commercial and government entities, of which more than 25 are from international organizations from 17 countries, including the United States, Australia, Italy, Netherlands, Finland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Germany, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Poland, Canada, Brazil and India,” according to Spaceflight Industries.One of the “cubesats,” which are small, often-briefcase-sized satellites, carried the ashes of about 100 people ranging from veterans to space enthusiasts, according to the company behind the satellite.The mission was billed as the “largest dedicated rideshare mission on a U.S. launch vehicle.”The launch had been postponed three times — once to accommodate additional pre-flight inspections, another time due to weather and the third, on Sunday, to “conduct additional inspections of the second stage,” according to the company’s website.As with previous SpaceX launches from Vandenberg, the rocket created an impressive aerial light show over Southern California.The launch was SpaceX’s 19th of the year.

first_img January 17, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A fourth day of testimony is expected Thursday in the trial of a Navy petty officer accused of speeding and driving impaired when he crashed his pickup truck into a barrier on a transition ramp to the San Diego- Coronado Bridge and flew off the road into Chicano Park, killing four people.Richard Sepolio, 27, faces 13 charges, including gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI and reckless driving causing injury in connection with the Oct. 15, 2016, deaths of Annamarie Contreras, 50, and Cruz Contreras, 52, a married couple from Chandler, Arizona, and Hacienda Heights residents Andre Banks, 49, and Francine Jiminez, 46.Sepolio faces nearly 24 years in prison if convicted of all charges. In her opening statement, Deputy District Attorney Cally Bright told jurors that Sepolio was traveling more than 80 miles per hour on the transition ramp from northbound Interstate 5 to the bridge about 3:30 p.m. when he lost control of his truck, which plummeted into the park where hundreds of people were enjoying a rally for motorcycle riders.Besides the four people killed, seven others were seriously injured, the prosecutor said.Bright said Sepolio had a glass of alcoholic cider and he and the woman shared a bottle of wine at lunch. The two took an Uber back to her home and Sepolio took off, saying he had to make some calls, the prosecutor said.Bright said Sepolio was on his cellphone arguing with his girlfriend — who’s now his wife — 44 seconds before the first 911 call was made about the accident.One of the first responders smelled alcohol on the defendant’s breath, the prosecutor said.Based on a blood draw done at the hospital, an expert estimated Sepolio’s blood-alcohol level at between .08 and .09 percent at the time of the crash, Bright told the jury.Defense attorney Paul Pfingst told the jury that Sepolio, an aviation electrician who works on helicopters at North Island Naval Air Station, passed two blood tests and two breathalyzer tests administered to him by law enforcement.Pfingst said Sepolio lost consciousness and suffered bruised lungs in the crash but refused pain medication so he could tell officers what happened.The trial is expected to last three weeks.
