About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Mazzarri adamant Torino deserved two spotkicks for Juventus defeatby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTorino coach Walter Mazzarri is adamant they didn’t deserve defeat to Juventus.The Derby della Mole was decided by a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty when Mario Mandzukic pounced on Simone Zaza’s poor back-pass.However, when it was still 0-0, Toro had two of their own appeals waved away.“I have to compliment my lads, because they put in a strong performance and played on a par with a tank like Juventus,” Mazzarri told DAZN.“In these cases, the incidents ultimately make the difference. We lost Salvatore Sirigu to injury early on, but Ichazo did well too. It’s a pity to have missed out on a point that we would’ve deserved.“You can take something from Juve only if they underestimate you, but they rested Giorgio Chiellini in the Champions League midweek, which shows how much they were thinking about this derby.“An unfortunate incident proved decisive. Perhaps there could’ve been a penalty or two in our favour, we certainly got that impression… In other games, VAR went back to look at this sort of situation.“Belotti was jumping to head the ball, which is his specialty, and he has a good chance of scoring if he connects with it cleanly. If you are pushed when mid-air, in my view that is a clear penalty.“People say we complain, but since the last time there was a meeting about VAR, they have generally gone to check on incidents. Belotti and Zaza appealed and asked for it to be viewed on VAR.”
FREDERICTON – Cannabis NB has made some changes to its website after concerns were raised by Health Canada last week.The Crown agency came under scrutiny for its product descriptions and pictures of people smiling, posing for selfies and holding yoga poses — images that may violate federal regulations.In a statement, Health Canada spokesman Andre Gagnon said the department is trying to raise awareness about the Cannabis Act and its restrictions on promotion.“In a few cases, Health Canada has reached out to … licence holders to bring concerns to their attention, or to collect information and gain a better understanding of some of the facts pertaining to their promotional activities,” he said.Cannabis NB has removed the original pictures and replaced them with images of chairs, a book and painting supplies.Spokeswoman Marie-Andree Bolduc says the agency did not receive any specific direction from Health Canada.“But based on this conversation and discussion, we made adjustments to some images on the website,” she said. “We will be generally reviewing the website and likely be making a few adjustments in the language as well.”In Ottawa, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor said her department is working with the province to make sure the website meets federal standards.“There are a number of changes that have already been made,” she said in French when asked about the snafu. “Changes have already been made, and we continue to do this work together to ensure that they understand the regulations.”The website includes categories such as “Connect,” “Refresh” and “Discover,” which the agency has described as educational tools for customers.According to figures released Wednesday, Cannabis NB recorded roughly $950,000 dollars in sales during its first 48 hours in business, and more than $71,000 of that revenue was generated by online sales.Cannabis NB President Brian Harriman says the sales figures were in line with expectations.He said the agency sold out of some products, but he said other provinces had the same problem.“Retail stores in communities bordering other provinces, such as Sackville and Campbellton, have seen higher-than-expected demand because of customers coming from other provinces,” Harriman said. “Cannabis NB will continue to closely monitor inventory throughout our stores and work with suppliers to get inventory to normal levels.”
OTTAWA — The head of the U.S. space agency says he wants to see Canadian astronauts walking on the moon before long, as part of a first step toward exploration of the farther reaches of space.Jim Bridenstine, the administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, says he wants Canada’s decades-long space partnership with the U.S. to continue as it embarks on the creation of its new Lunar Gateway.The U.S. is seeking broad international support for the next-generation space station it is planning to send into orbit around the moon starting in 2021.Bridenstine says he wants Canada to contribute its expertise in artificial intelligence and robotics, and that could include a next-generation Canadarm on the Lunar Gateway and more Canadian technology inside.He says the U.S. return to the moon is a stepping stone to a much more ambitious goal: deep-space exploration that could include reaching Mars in the next two decades.Bridenstine is in Ottawa for a large gathering of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada, where speculation is running high about Canada’s possible participation in the U.S. space program.Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains, a vocal booster of Canada’s AI hubs in Ontario and Quebec, is also scheduled to speak, along with one of Canada’s former astronauts, Marc Garneau, the current federal transport minister.The Canadian Press
Do you savour cheese omelettes? If so, think again as consuming more eggs and dietary cholesterol may up the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death from any cause, researchers have warned. The study suggests that egg yolks are one of the richest sources of dietary cholesterol among all commonly consumed foods. One large egg has 186 milligrams of dietary cholesterol in the yolk. “The take-home message is really about cholesterol, which happens to be high in eggs and specifically yolks,” said co-author Norrina Allen, Associate Professor at the Northwestern University. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”As part of a healthy diet, people need to consume lower amounts of cholesterol. People who consume less cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease,” Allen added. For the study, which will be published in the journal JAMA, the team involved 29,615 adults from six prospective cohort studies for up to 31 years of follow up. They found eating 300 mg of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with 17 per cent higher risk of incident cardiovascular disease and 18 per cent higher risk of all-cause deaths. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThe cholesterol was the driving factor independent of saturated fat consumption and other dietary fat, the team said. Eating three to four eggs per week was associated with 6 per cent higher risk of CVD and 8 per cent higher risk of any cause of death, they added. The researchers say that eating less than 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was the guideline recommendation before 2015. However, the most recent dietary guidelines omitted a daily limit for dietary cholesterol. The guidelines also include weekly egg consumption as part of a healthy diet. An adult in the US gets an average of 300 milligrams per day of cholesterol and eats about three or four eggs per week. Other animal products such as red meat, processed meat and high-fat dairy products (butter or whipped cream) also have high cholesterol content, said lead author Wenze Zhong from the varsity.
Shimla: Within a week after three-time Hamirpur MP joining the Congress, it was BJP’s turn to give a jolt to the Congress at Rampur – the home town of six-time Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.Former Congress minister and Dalit leader Singhi Ram, an estranged loyalist of Virbhadra Singh, joined the BJP in presence of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, who was campaigning at Rampur. Virbhadra reacted to ridicule him, saying “How does it make any difference on Singhi Ram joining BJP? He has no base there.” Also Read – J&K won’t remain UT forever, says ShahRampur is part of Mandi Parliamentary constituency, which more or less had been voting block for the Congress in most Lok Sabha elections. Singhi Ram had represented Rampur for six times before he was denied ticket at the behest of Virbhadra Singh in 2007 assembly polls. In 2017 poll, Singhi Ram has contested Rampur assembly constituency as independent but lost to his Congress successor Nand Lal, who is Virbhadra Singh’s staunch lieutenant.
It wasn’t necessarily a textbook performance from the Ohio State men’s basketball team (18-10, 10-5), but it still got the job done Saturday night at Nebraska (14-14, 6-9). Despite a sluggish start, 17 turnovers and two players fouling out, the Buckeyes toppled the Cornhuskers 65-62 in overtime. With the win, OSU’s postseason flame still burns, albeit dimly. Freshman guard JaQuan Lyle poured in 19 points, including a pair of free throws that sent the game into overtime and three key buckets down the stretch in overtime. Alongside Lyle’s strong showing, sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop had 16 points and classmate Jae’Sean Tate had 15 and a dozen rebounds. Junior forward Marc Loving matched Tate’s 15 points. Outside of this quartet, no other Buckeye scored. Both teams got off to horrendous starts, as they settled for jump shots that simply were not falling. OSU shot just 1-of-10 from the field in the first 11:36, while Nebraska missed 11 of its first 14 shots, too. The result of this indolent start was a 6-2 Nebraska advantage in the first nine minutes, with Tate being the only Buckeye to register in the scoring column. It was a forgettable way to get out of the gates. But as it turns out, OSU quickly did forget its lackluster start. The Buckeyes flipped a switch, peeling off a 13-5 run over a nine-minute period to snatch a 15-13 advantage.During that span for the Cornhuskers, a lack of aggressiveness plagued them. They continued to settle for too many jump shots, converting on just one of their six attempts from downtown.More of the same sloppy basketball ensued up to the halftime horn, with Nebraska holding a one-point lead, 22-21, at the break. The 43 combined points made for the lowest total in the first half of a Big Ten game this season. Freshman forward Jack McVeigh led the Cornhuskers with six points, while classmate Glynn Watson Jr. had five points and four rebounds. As a team, Nebraska shot just 26 percent from the field, including a painful 3-of-17 performance from 3-point land. For OSU, only three players — Tate, Bates-Diop and Loving — scored. Loving led the way with 11 points and three rebounds on 3-of-7 shooting. Tate added six points and four boards, while Bates-Diop registered four points, although he needed seven shots to do so. When the second half began, the Buckeyes were noticeably more aggressive. After an opening 3-pointer by McVeigh, OSU started driving to the basket, either getting fouled and going to the free throw line or connecting on easy layups. The Buckeyes’ first 13 points in the second period came from the charity stripe or inside the paint. At the 10-minute mark, amid a 20-5 run, the Buckeyes were leading 41-30.That momentum-shifting stretch was spearheaded by Lyle, who used a combination of the inside and outside game to score 11 straight points for OSU. It started to look like the Buckeyes were pulling away, but the Cornhuskers had other plans. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Watson and McVeigh immediately breathed new life into Nebraska. Then, a few possessions later, junior guard Tai Webster knocked in a 3-pointer from the top of the key, which cut OSU’s lead down to two points and fired up the white-and-red clad crowd. Over the course of the next four minutes, the two teams traded punches. Nebraska got it to as close as one on two separate occasions, but OSU also had an advantage as large as five in that stretch. After slicing OSU’s lead back to one point at the 1:19 mark, Lyle missed a layup, giving it back to the Cornhuskers with a chance to take the lead. Andrew White III didn’t squander the opportunity. The junior guard buried a contested 3-pointer from a few steps beyond the line, giving Nebraska its first lead in 17 minutes. Trailing 56-54, OSU got its chance to counter. Lyle dribbled the ball at the top of the key, as the clock dwindled, eventually taking his man off the bounce and forcing a foul. The freshman composed himself and knocked down the game-tying free throws. A turnover by Nebraska and a last-second heave from freshman Mickey Mitchell clanked off the rim, sending the game to overtime. In the bonus period, Lyle carried the Buckeyes. Loving scored OSU’s first points, but after that, the freshman guard used his size to take his man off the dribble, weaving to the rim for three consecutive layups. The third and final one ended up becoming the game-clincher for OSU after the Cornhuskers’ final few chances came up short.McVeigh led Nebraska with 16 points and four rebounds. Next up for OSU is one of its hardest tests to date, a matchup with No. 8 Michigan State on Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m.

Papy Mendy says Leicester City make the advantage of their short break count when they lock horns with Liverpool on Wednesday night.The Foxes’ bowed to the last gasp goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers, in their agonising 4-3 reverse at Molineux Stadium.But the French midfielder who has been consistent for the Foxes this season has called for his side to give their all at Anfield.“We have to stay concentrated,” Mendy told the club’s website prior to the trip to Merseyside. “We can work well, and we can think about Liverpool, we can prepare well to fight.“It is good to have a little break because I think we need it for our minds.

Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. We do the maximum to get the maximum result.”The 26-year-old believes City must put their defeat to Wolves behind them as they aim to cause an upset against the league leaders on Wednesday evening.“It was frustrating because we came back after 2-0 and we lost in the last minute,” Mendy continued. “It was not easy. We didn’t start well at the beginning and we have to correct this.“That is our problem this season. We have a desire to correct this every time in training and we must correct this problem.“We play together and we have to fight together and yes, the Premier League is very difficult because every weekend we play against a tough team. It is a good challenge to get a good result at Liverpool.”
ReutersA woman experienced acute anxiety after she woke up on a ‘freezing cold’ and ‘pitch black’ Air Canada flight, hours after it landed at Toronto airport earlier this month. The carrier said they are investigating how the cabin crew left the sleeping passenger without checking.The incident involving Tiffani Adams was shared on Facebook by her friend Deanna Noel-Date on June 20. The post described how Adams got herself out of the carrier after getting locked up by the cabin crew members. “I think I’m having a bad dream bc like seriously how is this happening!” Adams wrote in the post.While the carrier confirmed the incident, it hasn’t released the findings of the investigation, reported Associated Press. “We are still reviewing this matter so we have no additional details to share, but we have followed up with the customer and remain in contact with her,” Air Canada told AP.According to the post, she found it difficult to breathe and tried to control her panic attack while attempting to “charge my phone by plugging into every USB port I could find.”Noel-Dale initially assumed that Adams was at home and experiencing bad dreams when she contacted her. It was only after Adams opened FaceTime and showed her the pitch-black cabin that she understood the situation. However, Adams claims that her phone switched off due to low battery soon after talking to her friend about the situation. Adams later got hold of a flashlight from the cockpit and made SOS symbols. After gaining no response, she opening the main cabin door and managed to get the attention of a nearby ground staff who helped her out of the plane.The passenger wrote that after an Air Canada representative asked if she was ok, she was offered a limo and hotel but she rejected the offer. She said the company later apologised and said they would investigate the matter.The incident, however, continued to affect her even after 10 days, “I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” she wrote.
