England head coach Gareth Southgate insists the team are searching for a midfield player in the mold of former England great Paul Gascoigne.Southgate believes the country needs a game-changing midfielder of that calibre after watching Spain’s Thiago Alcantara completing dominate the midfield in their UEFA Nations League clash on Saturday.The former England U-21 boss admits he is yet to find his own creative solution to compete against the world’s top sides.“The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I’m not sure he was developed, I think he was a consequence of a unique talent,” Southgate, said of his former team-mate whose final England cap came in 1998, according to Sky Sports.“I think what is happening at junior level is that there is more emphasis on technical ability, there is more, right from five, six, seven-year-olds, there is more emphasis on being able to handle the ball and play.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We’re seeing that with some of our junior teams. But we can see there’s a period of time for those players to come through.“We can see there’s a few players around our squad that have the ability to do that, but Spain have had a production line for a long period of time.“Look at those who have gone and those that come into the team. Of that type of player, they’ve produced more than any other team in the world.”

Scientific Officer at the Earthquake Unit at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Karleen Black, made the disclosure at the Earthquake Awareness Week launch on Monday (January 8) at the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) on Haining Road, St. Andrew.She said “felt earthquake reports” were received for eight events with magnitudes ranging from 3.1 to 3.6. Two of these were in St. Elizabeth, two in Portland, one in Manchester, one in St. Mary and the other two were offshore, with one in the region of Cuba and the other in the Pedro Banks. Ms. Black informed that an additional 33 events were detected locally, but these were later classified as possible explosions.In total, the seismograph network, which is comprised of 12 stations across the island, detected and recorded 279 tremors occurring locally and regionally. Seventy-five were near earthquakes and 79 were distant earthquakes coming from areas such as South America and other parts of the globe, she indicated.Meanwhile, Ms. Black noted that a damaging earthquake can occur anytime, day or night “so the onus is on us to be in a constant state of readiness if we are to safely navigate the effects of a major earthquake.” She said that for this year, the Earthquake Unit will work towards upgrading its seismograph network in order to improve its capabilities.“As such, we hope to add a new (seismic) station to our complement of 12, making it 13. The unit will also be benefiting from an upcoming Jamaica Social Investment Fund Project (JSIF), which is sponsored by the World Bank, as part of its disaster reduction efforts,” she pointed out.Under JSIF’s Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project (DVRP), 10 digital seismometer systems will be placed at seismic stations across the island to give data on an earthquake’s magnitude, depth and epicentre on land and offshore.Earthquake Awareness Week is being observed from January 7-13 under the theme ‘Preparing for the Quake Helps Reduce Damage After the Shakes’. While Jamaica has experienced several tremors, the last major event was the great Kingston earthquake of 1907, which caused more than 1,000 deaths, damaged numerous buildings and started several fires.The 1692 Port Royal quake was perhaps the largest and most damaging, with about 5,000 deaths from the quake itself and the subsequent outbreak of yellow fever. A section of the town sank into the sea.Release: JIS Related Items:

Michael Stravato for The Texas TribuneA woman reflects quietly in the waiting room at Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast’s ambulatory surgical center in Houston Friday, August 2, 2013.The Texas Senate gave approval to two abortion-related bills on Wednesday.The upper chamber gave final passage to Senate Bill 8, which would ban what opponents call “partial-birth” abortions and put restrictions on donating fetal tissue, and gave initial approval to Senate Bill 415, which would ban doctors from performing dilation and evacuation abortions.Sen. Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, said he sponsored SB 8 because Texas law enforcement “lacks the authority to enforce the ban on partial-birth abortion.” The procedure is already prohibited by federal law, and Schwertner said he wants to align state and federal statute, allowing Texas law enforcement to prosecute cases.The other main function of SB 8 would be a ban on the sale of fetal tissue and increased restrictions on donations of such tissue for medical research. The sale of fetal tissue is illegal under federal law, but if a patient consents, abortion clinics may donate fetal tissue for use in medical research. Federal law allows clinics to be reimbursed for costs “associated with the transportation, implantation, processing preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue” for research purposes.While presenting his bill, Schwertner cited videos released in 2015 that showed Planned Parenthood officials across the nation, including in Houston, discussing how their providers obtain fetal tissue for medical research. Though the videos have been widely debunked, abortion opponents claim they are evidence of Planned Parenthood employees admitting to selling fetal tissue.The only debate the bill faced before confirmation was over an amendment by Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, which would allow a women whose pregnancy was terminated to request the donation of any aborted fetal tissue for medical research that could, she said, “save lives.” Though Schwertner agreed that “research is important,” he said his bill aimed to remove “any incentive of utilization of human fetal tissue for profit.”Zaffirini’s amendment was voted down.The bill received a Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing last month, which Schwertner chairs.“What we want to do is get away from profiting motive as well as middlemen dealing with fetal tissue,” Schwertner said at that hearing.The Senate also tentatively approved SB 415, by Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, which targets dilation and evacuation abortions — second-trimester procedures where doctors use surgical instruments to grasp and remove pieces of fetal tissue. Opponents call them “dismemberment abortions.”During a heated debate on the Senate floor, Sen. Sylvia Garcia, D-Houston, asked Perry whether he had consulted with any obstetrics and gynecology groups before drafting the bill. Perry said no.Later, Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, told the chamber that medical professionals agree that the dilation and evacuation procedure is the safest way to perform an abortion after the first trimester and said the bill would potentially punish doctors who use the procedure to save a woman’s life.Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, then introduced an amendment that would allow doctors to perform the procedure if it is the safest available option for a pregnant woman. The amendment failed. The bill is scheduled for a final vote on Monday.Read more:Senate Health and Human Services Committee members heard emotional testimony last month from reproductive rights activists and abortion opponents over three measures that would further restrict the procedure.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/03/15/texas-senate-abortion-bills/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

Netflix will not be streaming a controversial documentary about Louis Farrakhan.A company spokesperson on Tuesday said that reports that the streaming service would add the documentary “My Life’s Journey Through Music” next month were the result of a communication error.“This film will not be released on Netflix,” the spokesperson said. “Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused.”Farrakhan announced on Twitter Monday that the film, which he helped make, would be coming to the service in August. “On August 1st, watch the premiere of my music documentary ‘My Life’s Journey Through Music’ on @netflix,” the Nation of Islam leader wrote. The film was also included last week on a list published by British site the Independent of movies coming to the U.K. version of Netflix in August. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
