0Shares0000Manchester United midfielder Paul PogbaLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 15 – Paul Pogba says Manchester United will be motivated by revenge when they face Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday at Old Trafford.United have suffered two painful defeats against Chelsea already this season, losing 4-0 in the league and 1-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Although United manager Jose Mourinho insists his old club Chelsea’s visit doesn’t come with added emotion, Pogba begs to differ.The France midfielder, who has endured an erratic season since his world record move from Juventus, says Mourinho’s men would dearly love to damage Chelsea’s title hopes and boost their bid to finish in the top four in the process.“Well, this season Chelsea have beaten us two times and, obviously, we don’t want that to happen a third time. We want to win,” Pogba said.“Obviously they are ahead of us, they’re playing for the title and, for them, it’s important to win this game.“For us as well because we’re playing for the top four as well, so it’s going to be a game that’s really important for each team.“We have to be focused and get ready and show them revenge, it’s revenge for us. So, let’s be positive about it and hopefully go and win this game.”United have gone unbeaten in 21 league matches since being thrashed at Stamford Bridge in October, but 10 draws during that run leaves them scrapping for Champions League qualification rather than the title.Chelsea’s far superior cutting edge means the league leaders are 18 points better off than fifth-placed United, although Pogba believes the west Londoners’ turnaround this season should offer Mourinho’s side hope for the future.“They have a great team and everybody knows that,” Pogba said.“When you’re playing in the Premier League you have to have a bit of luck as well but you create the luck.“They have a manager who pushes them and they have players who want to show the world that Chelsea are still alive and, last year, that didn’t happen.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Howard Kendall 1 Everton’s greatest-ever manager Howard Kendall has died at the age of 69.Kendall won the title with the club as a player in 1969 as part of the famous ‘Holy Trinity’ along with Alan Ball and Colin Harvey, but undoubtedly his best achievements came when he returned to Goodison Park in 1981.Within three years he had won the First Division championship, repeating the feat in 1987, while also winning the FA Cup and European Cup-Winners’ Cup in the club’s most successful era in which the Toffees became a powerhouse of British football.“It is with great sadness that Everton Football Club has learned of the passing of Howard Kendall,” said a statement from the club.“The most successful manager in the history of the club and one of the greatest players to pull on the Everton jersey, he passed away in hospital in Southport this morning at the age of 69, surrounded by loved ones.“The thoughts of everyone associated with the club are with Howard’s family at this difficult time and it would be appreciated if everyone could respect their request for privacy.”
Juan Mata has turned down a money-spinning move to join the Chinese Super League and is now likely to extend his stay at Old Trafford.Mata is expected to stay at United with boss Jose Mourinho poised to trigger a clause in his contract that would extend his stay by a year.The Spain international was approached by representatives from China to gauge his interest in moving and was offered a huge rise on his current £165,000-a-week wages.But Mata has decided to reject the offer and will stay at United at least until the summer of 2019.Meanwhile, Ander Herrera is expected to extend his stay, despite the lack of opportunities offered to him since the arrival of Nemanja Matic.Herrera was United’s player of the year last season, but has dropped down the pecking order this term.Despite this, Mourinho will rubber-stamp a one-year extension for Herrera in the coming weeks. 1 Mata is expected to extend his stay at Manchester United by a further year

Hair trends have an amazing ability to rekindle memories of the past and while it’s not often that a haircut becomes a fashion statement there are a few that have broken the mould over the years and became game changers in their own right. Patrick asked Noreen one of our Artistic Directors to share some of the most famous cuts with us over the years including what is the hottest cut this winter.Noreen says “At the minute slick and sharp haircuts are very popular with inspiration from old taking a modern twist. For years we have had messy chic long hair with trims every few months but now cuts are back in a big way. The celebrity cut of the moment is Elizabeth Debicki, with her razor sharp cheekbones this stunning cut has caught everyone’s attention, the great news is that a classic cut is ageless and timeless so any age can pull it off” Of course this isn’t the first time when a “hair cut” has become the “it” cut we have had so many iconic looks over the years, here are Noreen’s choice for cuts that define the decades.The TwiggyTwiggy made short hair with long side swept fringe the look of 1960’s London, defining the entire modern era. It was a cut that launched Twiggy’s modelling career and a new generation of short styles that are still worn today fifty years later! Michelle Williams, Carey Mulligan and Emma Watson are just some of the modern day stars inspired by Twiggy’s iconic cut. The PurdyThe bowl haircut named after Joanna Lumley’s character in The Avengers TV series has received mixed reactions over the years, but love it or hate it this chic stylish cut made a statement in the 70’s and there have been many modern interpretations of this style manyof which soften the look slightly.The Lady DianaJust like everyone loves Kate Middleton today, Princess Diana was widely admired for her charity work and her amazing sense of style. Her short cut is one of the most famous cuts of all time.The LindaThis Sexy Choppy style was created on a whim in Paris by Julien d’Y’s and rumour has it that he still has her ponytail at home! This cut became an instant cultural phenomenon and solidified Linda Evangelista’s place as the fashion worlds ultimate hair chameleon.Everyone wanted her hair cut and according to Linda herself this haircut quadrupled her rate – not bad for a haircut?The RachelSince Jennifer Anniston’s 90’s layered shag “The Rachel” cut no look has quite so single-handedly defined a generation. This was the last time that a single haircut was so much in demand. If you ask any stylist, they will tell you that this cut was requested time and time again during the 90’s, it was so popular that it has become one of the most iconic haircuts of all time.The Pop or Posh BobVictoria Beckham is undoubtedly the queen of transformation and while some of her earlier fashion choices raised a few eyebrows and seen her on worst dressed lists she is the complete opposite today and in terms of fashion never gets it wrong. But whether we agree with her past fashion choices or not, no one can deny the sensation that she caused when she chopped off her long locks to give us this asymmetric bob in 2007. The popularity of this bob nicknamed the “Pob” marked her move from Spice Girl to Style Icon and Fashion Designer.Noreen says, “whatever your age, whatever your style, the right cut can work for you, if you fancy a change or if you want some inspiration or if you fancy a change for Christmas book a complimentary consultation with one of our talented team of stylist who would be delighted to assist you in creating a bespoke look especially for you.You can book your appointment on www.patrickgildea.ie or by calling 074-9125476.Patrick Gildea Hairdressing: Cuts that define the decades was last modified: September 3rd, 2019 by Patrick GildeaShare 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)

Businesses of all sizes are discovering that use of the cloud has benefits, chief of which may be cost benefits, but there are also benefits of quick and easy scalability, and no need to make large up-front investments in hardware and software. An annual survey by Software Advice found that between 2008 and 2014 businesses flipped in their preferences between cloud and on-premise. In 2008, 88 percent preferred on-premise, but by 2014, 87 percent said that they preferred the cloud. But that’s not to say that migration to the cloud is always the best solution for every business or that on-premise solutions will be gone any time soon. IDC, for example, forecasts that in 2020 the data center will still account for 50 percent of IT infrastructure spending.Samir Shah, chief of staff at Baselayer Technology, told TechTarget SearchCloudComputing that “the trend across the enterprise landscape is for CIOs to outline a strategy to move or migrate to the cloud. We’ve seen public cloud migrations where expenses escalate upward post-launch based on unanticipated utilization.”Arun Chandrasekaran, Gartner analyst, said that “there are potential reasons for disappointment with a cloud move, and the primary one is cost.”
Pinterest, the fast-growing, highly valued Visual Web startup, is far ahead of the Silicon Valley pack when it comes to gender diversity. But it’s vowing to do far better on both gender and racial diversity, cofounder Evan Sharp promised in a blog post on Thursday.Startlingly, despite Pinterest’s efforts to improve its numbers, its industry-leading ratio of women tech employees stayed steady at 21 percent from 2014 to 2015.See also: Why Pinterest’s Workforce Is The Future Of TechThat’s nearly twice the ratios other large tech companies have reported. But Pinterest, spurred by engineer Tracy Chou, has made far more substantive efforts. If it’s struggling, it shows just how hard the problem is to crack.“Tech” includes product management, engineering, and design. Pinterest separately broke out its engineering diversity figures this year: 19 percent of its engineers are women. Overall, Pinterest improved its workforce gender ratio from 40 percent female to 42 percent.Pinterest has been doing well with recruiting women into engineering internships and into entry-level engineering jobs for new college graduates, but that hasn’t been enough to move its overall numbers.So, Sharp says the company’s going to make at least 30 percent of its full-time engineering hires women in 2016. The company’s also going to increase its hiring for people of Hispanic and African-American backgrounds in both engineering and non-engineering roles. It’s a maxim in business that you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Pinterest will likely face some criticism that it’s setting quotas. But one person’s quota is another person’s target. Pinterest is betting that a diverse workforce isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s good for its business, as it seeks to have employees who can relate to its fast-growing base of users and represent their experiences.Here’s Pinterest’s current workforce breakdown:Pinterest’s 2015 workforce demographicsImages courtesy of Pinterest Tags:#diversity#Diversity In Tech#Evan Sharp#Gender#gender issues#hiring#hiring trends#Pinterest#Tracy Chou#women in tech#women in technology Related Posts How to Cultivate the Skill of Being a Creative … How to Meet the Demands of the Socially Conscio… owen thomas AI Will Empower Leaders, Not Replace Them How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi…

A preliminary police investigation has revealed that a semi tractor-trailer hit the back of a line of vehicles backed-up in traffic due to construction. The first car struck caught fire.Police said in a statement that 29-year-old Alanna Norman Koons and her daughters, June and Ruby Koons, of Indianapolis died in that vehicle.Police say the semi driver, 57-year-old Bruce Pollard of Sturgeon, Missouri, was speeding. He was arrested on preliminary charges including reckless homicide. Court records Monday don’t list a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.Police say seven others were hospitalized in the crash.
