Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe No. 17 Ohio State women’s soccer team returns home in search of its first win in two weeks.The Buckeyes suffered a loss to then-No. 13 Minnesota and tied Wisconsin last weekend. OSU also lost redshirt senior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker for the season due to injury.The Buckeyes face off against tenth-ranked Nebraska in the first of two home games this weekend. Redshirt senior defender/forward Morgan Wolcott doesn’t anticipate Nebraska being an easy comeback game.“Nebraska always gives us a challenge,” Wolcott said. “They are a physical team … and we’ve struggled against them. (The team) feels prepared coming off of last weekend, which didn’t go as planned.”Nebraska has a 7-3-0 record in 2016, and the Cornhuskers will be coming to Columbus off of their most recent loss to Michigan. Overall, Nebraska has been playing a very consistent game with no notable statistical difference between its goals scored or its shots attempted in the first and second halves. The Buckeyes take on Iowa this Sunday at noon. Iowa owns a 6-4-0 record, with its two most recent losses being against Big Ten teams, Michigan and Michigan State. Before the Hawkeyes play OSU this weekend, Iowa takes on Penn State. The Hawkeyes have scored almost two-thirds of their goals in the second half. The Buckeyes have allowed 15 goals this season, 11 coming in the second half.OSU is determined to not allow the outcomes of their recent games affect their performance for the future.“Sometimes we get caught off guard … we need to get back to the basics of our system,” Wolcott said. “We tried to complicate things too much.”To keep things simple, the team has adopted a new mantra. In practices, the Buckeyes try to “get one percent better every day.”“If we can just keep getting one percent better, we feel like by November, when post-season comes, we’re going to be the team we want to be, but right now I’m pretty happy,” said senior forward Lindsay Agnew. “We have a great group of girls, so we just have to keep it going.” read more

Egypt coach Salah is the equal of Ronaldo Modric

first_imgMohamed Salah is the equal of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric, claims Egypt coach Javier AguirreThe 26-year-old had an incredible debut season at Liverpool and received many plaudits and accolades for his efforts.However, Salah was beaten to the UEFA Men’s Best Player of the Year award by Modric with Ronaldo finishing second.Now, after missing out on Europe’s top individual prize, Salah has once more been pitted against the duo for the world football’s most prestigious personal honour in FIFA’s The Best award.“I think that the three players are equal, none of them is above the other, but there can be only one winner. Hopefully, it’ll be Salah,” Aguirre told EFE.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Salah has only managed two goals in his first five games of the new Premier League season.But Aguirre feels that even the most prolific goalscorers like Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have their dry streaks.“This is just the beginning. The scorers go through streaks, suddenly they score three goals in one match.“Scorers like Salah, Ronaldo or (Lionel) Messi can be three or four games without a netting goal, and then they let go.”Salah will likely line-up for Liverpool in this evening’s Champions League opener at home to Paris Saint-Germain.last_img read more

Dead baby goes missing for 18 hours at Cheshire Hall Medical Center

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 27, 2016 – A dead baby goes missing at the Cheshire Hall Medical Center and now two investigations are launched to determine how a fetus got lost for 18-hours between Monday and Tuesday here in Provo.  A report of a startling case emerges and the myriad of problems in this medical mishap are not only many, but frightening.  In a late night report to Magnetic Media by PDA candidate for the Leeward & Long Bay Constituency, we learn of a young Turks and Caicos woman who not only miscarried her baby but was told by the medical staff at the Cheshire Hall Medical Center, that they could not find the child.  Calsada Johnson recounted the horrific facts of the situation, saying for 18 hours no one knew where the baby was and it was her incessant requests that caused a Ministry of Health senior official to step in and to personally search the trash, where the three month old, prematurely born, baby boy was found.Johnson explained that around 5pm Monday the woman miscarried the child, that her body just expelled the baby and that it took calling the Police to get to 911 which was not answering the phone.  By the time medics arrived at the Lower Bight home, the mother was ready to go, her child was apparently already deceased.  Johnson said the service at the Emergency Room was slow, no sense of urgency and with the focus on the bleeding young woman, they trusted that hospital staff had the child.  By 9pm, the family felt the woman was out of medical danger and asked for the baby.  No one knew, said Johnson, where the miscarried baby was.  She said that hours later, there was a promise by a senior health official to get involved; that promise was kept but did little to allay family fears about what happened to the child.  Around 1pm on Tuesday, the health official called and explained that the baby was found… when pressured about where, it was said the premature fetus was found in the garbage bin.Calsada Johnson said it was unbelievable the treatment the family received and said this to Magnetic Media when we asked her what she wanted to see happen.  “Someone needs to take responsibility for what happened and we need people at the hospital who will be more sensitive and responsible professionals.  The baby is a human being and no one deserves to be discarded like that.” The young woman, who is already the mother of one was admitted and suffered at least one emotional break down.  The woman, whose identity we were asked to withhold was described as: “She is better today, still down because of all that has happened and she seems to be in good health.”  Johnson, who said these types of representations are a part of the work she now finds herself doing as the named candidate for the PDA in Electoral District #5, told us what she thinks of this mess where a dead baby was lost by the hospital or the ambulance crew for nearly a full day; “I think it is appalling that in this day and age that we are still going though things like this and at a hospital that is supposed to be state of the art.” The TCI Hospitals and the Ministry of Health are both investigating the matter, independently of each other.  Health Minister Rufus Ewing informed Magnetic Media that he has authorized a team and new PR Executive for Interhealth Canada, Nikira John explained their findings at TCI hospitals will be turned over to the Ministry of Health to aide in the Ministry’s mission to get to the bottom of this case.
