We could have won.”The top-of-the-table clash, in front of 75,000 spectators, was the only top-tier fixture in Germany on Sunday.Borussia Moenchengladbach’s home game against Cologne was postponed earlier due to severe weather warnings.Despite dominating possession, Bayern could not finish the first-half opportunities which fell to Lewandowski, Leon Goretzka and Thomas Mueller.It was not until after the break that the visitors really threatened Bayern’s goal, as three huge chances went begging.Sabitzer fired an effort over the crossbar, with the goal at his mercy, at the start of the second half.Then Werner then pinched possession and rounded Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who had come to the edge of the box for a clearance.But Bayern defender David Alaba got back to block his shot and deny the striker a 21st league goal of the season.With 53 minutes gone, Bayern were awarded a penalty when Lewandowski went down in the area after Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano clipped his boot.The Poland striker was poised to add to his league-leading tally so far of 22 Bundesliga goals this term, but was denied by VAR.Then just after the hour mark, Werner wasted a golden chance served up to him.He was set up perfectly by Leipzig winger Christopher Nkunku, but the could only watch as his shot flew wide of the Bayern goal.There was good news for the hosts in the second half as defender Lucas Hernandez and winger Kingsley Coman came on for their first appearances after long-term injuries.Sabitzer regrets firing a clear second-half chance over the crossbarcenter_img RB Leipzig held Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich to a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena on Sunday to stay just one point behind the defending champions in the title race. Leipzig worked tirelessly to thwart the hosts, for whom victory would have opened up a four-point gap after third-placed Borussia Dortmund’s 4-3 loss at Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Mueller’s Bayern were held to a goalless draw Bayern are bidding to win an eighth straight league title. They were awarded a second-half penalty which was then reversed when VAR showed Robert Lewandowski had been offside. Second-placed Leipzig often rode their luck to repeatedly frustrate Bayern, but wasted a series of second-half chances themselves. “The problem was that both teams could live with a 0-0 draw,” admitted Bayern forward Thomas Mueller. “In the end, neither team wanted to take the absolute risks, which meant we didn’t play to our strengths.”Advertisement Promoted Content8 Best 1980s High Tech Gadgets7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBest Car Manufacturers In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Birds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parkslast_img read more

Ramsey: Win will be big boost

first_img It ended Rangers’ five-match losing run and they are a point from safety before Sunderland and Burnley play Newcastle and Tottenham respectively on Sunday. And Ramsey feels it will give his side belief ahead of their crunch clash at Aston Villa on Tuesday. “It’s going to be a big boost, when you’re getting beaten every week and performing well sometimes it’s hard to see a way out,” he said. “The players are keeping faith. We knew it was going to be very difficult to get any sort of result here but goals always lift any team’s confidence. “We’ve been close to that, it wasn’t our best performance, it was a good performance, but we performed similar to that against Everton (a 2-1 defeat). We just haven’t taken the chances in the same way.” And he revealed Zamora is not training fully with Rangers and will face a race against time to be fit again for the trip to Villa. He said: “We have got an outstanding medical staff and Bobby doesn’t train, he hardly trains, and sometimes it’s hard to get the continuity between him and Charlie or whoever plays up front. “At the moment it’s needs must. He’ll go into some programme over the weekend to get him ready for Tuesday. I would imagine had he not had the injuries he’s got he would finish every game. Boss Chris Ramsey insists QPR have given themselves hope in their Barclays Premier League survival fight after a spectacular win at West Brom. “At the moment we have to take him off at a certain time. “Bobby is very important, he’s very important in the changing room, a seasoned professional.” Victor Anichebe pulled a goal back for Albion after the break but they never recovered from a first-half no show. Youssouf Mulumbu was also sent off six minutes from time after a challenge with Barton. They are eight points above third-bottom Rangers and boss Tony Pulis hinted he thought his side were already thinking about the summer. “We powder-puffed our way through 45 minutes of Premier League football,” he said. “There are a lot of things which go on in footballers’ minds and around football clubs. Getting to 33 points people listen to social media and the press and everything else but we haven’t got over the line by a mile yet. “As I said to them afterwards, in this league if you’re not on it you’ll get a rude awakening and they got that today.” Pulis also admitted Albion are unlikely to appeal Mulumbu’s dismissal despite feeling it was harsh. He added: “I don’t think so. He has led with his hand up, he hasn’t pulled his elbow back and he’s not tried to elbow him in the face. Barton is going into his hand and the referee will say he shouldn’t have his hand up.” Former England striker Bobby Zamora scored a fabulous lob as Rangers bagged just their second away win of the season with a 4-1 victory at The Hawthorns. Eduardo Vargas and Charlie Austin also scored first-half goals to give Rangers a 3-0 half-time lead before Joey Barton added a fourth in stoppage time at the end of the game.

Toni Martin’s faith helped her become a better leader

first_img Comments In the fall, Syracuse head coach Shannon Doepking brought her team together. An annual tradition for her teams, she held a vote to decide her team’s captains. SU picked three upperclassmen based on how well they represent four values: family, 100 percent effort, selflessness and ownership, Doepking said. The Orange thought junior Toni Martin represented everything they were looking for.“Toni is one of those players that is able to hold people accountable and hold people to a standard,” Doepking said. “She’s been forced into that role because we need it but she’s very well respected on this team.”Martin is a junior captain for Syracuse (9-16, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) with an OPS of .904, first on the team among those with at least one start. But it’s her non-quantifiable role that has the largest impact. Martin ensures that all her teammates don’t panic or make an illogical decision, senior Bryce Holmgren said. Yet, she’s still honest, advising older teammates what they can do better. Martin credits this composure to her commitment to Christianity, where she learned how to approach situations from another person’s perspective.“I know that I do not have the control that a higher power has and to me, that’s God,” Martin said. “I think it takes a lot of stress off my life to know that I’m not in control of everything.”Martin grew up in a devout Catholic household in Raymore, Missouri, a small town with a population of 21,000. Her and her family rarely missed services, attending on almost every Sunday for the first 18 years of her life.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Martin joined travel and club softball teams that had games during services, she still cut out time to attend church. If she had to leave before services ended or show up late, Martin would show up with her softball jersey and cleats. It didn’t matter if she appeared out of place around other members in suits, dress shirts, dresses and fancy skirts — staying committed to her faith was more important, she said.“She’s a very rational leader… She always gives us advice for a reason,” Holmgren said. “I think it comes from who she is as a person.”Instead of looking from a narrow-minded or biased perspective, she looks at issues through an outsider’s lens. This helps her when dealing with teammates.During games, Martin advises Syracuse center fielder Alicia Hansen. If the senior dives for a ball that is too far away or throws to the cut-off man when she could have thrown right to the bag, Martin will be direct with the older Hansen.After a 50-50 play, Hansen would look to Martin: “Is that okay?”“Why did you do that?” Martin remembered she’d ask. Martin said she then explains what she saw from left field.She does the same outside of games. While practicing in Manley Field House on March 6, the Orange focused on defensive situations with runners on first and third base. Freshman catchers Michala Maciolek and Alexis Kaiser both fielded bunts and threw to second when they should’ve held onto the ball, or vice versa. After practice, Martin calmly approached the two and broke down what they should’ve done.“I asked them why they’re doing what they’re doing and try to make them see the decision they made just wasn’t the right one,” she said. “They need to think about it differently.” Published on March 20, 2019 at 10:42 pm Contact Adam: adhillma@syr.edu | @_adamhillmancenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Henrik Tjärnström: Collaboration makes Kindred the trend setter in global sustainability

first_img Stockholm-listed online gambling firm Kindred Group Plc has published its 2018 corporate sustainability report, outlining key long-term social responsibility commitments and targets for its enlarged enterprise.Updating stakeholders, Kindred Chief Executive Henrik Tjärnström details the enhanced responsibility placed on the online gambling group, which in 2019 services 25 million customers, across Europe, the US and Australia, operating 11 brands and employing 1,500 staff globally.One of the largest Stockholm Nasdaq tech enterprises, at present Kindred, records an average of 30 million transactions per day, having recorded an 18% increase in 2018 active customers.Having been a company executive since 2003, Tjärnström details that the Kindred is entering its most exciting phase in business, where the company has to meet numerous complex and diverse global challenges.“As an online gambling group with operations spanning literally across the world, we face interesting challenges and complex regulatory requirements wherever we set our feet,” Tjärnström added. “It keeps us on our toes and we enjoy the close relationship we have with local regulators across our markets. To ensure a steady course we have set out a clear path ahead, focused around our purpose of transforming gambling to ensure fair play, the best deal and a great experience for our players.”Leading Kindred through numerous growth phases, Tjärnström outlines the importance of the company being able to meet challenges head-on, whilst maintaining top customer experiences, product output and its diversified business model.Tjärnström points to the success of Kindred’s ‘sustainability framework’, launched in 2018 with the initiative derived from a close dialogue with key gambling and wider stakeholders.“This framework, together with our corporate values, ensure we focus on where we as a company have the biggest impact, both positive and negative, and thereby can make a substantial difference,” he continued. “The framework is integrated into our long-term strategy, objectives and business model to ensure it filters through every area of our operations.”The success of the framework has allowed Kindred to approach complex matters differently, with the company absorbing advice from multiple field experts such as Christian Kalb (Ethisport Co-Founder expert on sports integrity), Dr Mark Griffiths (Professor of Behavioural Addiction at Nottingham Trent University), Sant Yanica (Malta MGA Legal Counsel on Customer Protections) and the All-in Diversity on industry workforce inclusion and diversity.Moving forward, Tjärnström notes collaboration as a key dynamic that will help Kindred meet its tough objectives, with the CEO outlining that partnerships have helped the operator launch first to market social responsibility tools.Furthermore, at an operational level, collaboration with sustainability researchers has led to Kindred gaining better customer profiling abilities, player communications, self-perception and team-to-team feedback on customer engagements.He concluded: “With approximately one per cent of customers who cannot keep their gambling under control need to stop and we as an operator need to help them in the best way we can. We do not benefit from having them as customers and our goal is that zero revenue is derived from harmful gambling by 2023.“To reach this goal we continue to invest in tools and research, as we do not have all the answers ourselves. ‘Collaboration to Improve’ was the theme at the 2018 Sustainable Gambling Conference, which you can read more about on page 17, and we intend to continue to collaborate with all relevant stakeholders.” Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 Share Mace launches EQ Connect to solve the industry’s ‘single view’ conundrum on identifying risk  August 10, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Related Articles Sharelast_img read more
