Arsenal and Liverpool-linked striker insists he is happy at Juventus

first_img1 Alvaro Morata Arsenal and Liverpool target Alvaro Morata has cooled talk of a return to Real Madrid.The frontman has hit three goals for Juventus this season – including two in the Champions League – and has become a fans’ favourite in Turin.The Spaniard, who turned down a move to Arsenal before joining Juve in the summer of 2014, has a clause in his contract which allows Real to take him back to the Bernabeu.But the 22-year-old – also said to be on Arsenal and Liverpool’s radar –  would prefer to remain in Italy for the time being.“What the papers say about there being a buyback clause for me to go back to Real Madrid is true,” Morata told Radio Marca.“However, some things are more important than clauses and a person’s happiness must be considered.“If we win the Champions League final at the San Siro then I will walk back to Turin.”last_img read more

Pay attention to goals

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake This time of year is full of resolutions: lose weight, exercise more, work less (or more), be kinder to others. But as you make your list of 2006 resolutions, a good hard look at your finances could be far more beneficial in the long run than working off the extra 15 pounds you gained on fruitcake. “This is definitely the time of year to get things started,” said Barry Armstrong, a Boston financial planner with Woodbury Financial Services. “For some people, it’s a bitter message. There are things that you don’t like doing. But they have to be done.” First off, if you don’t have a financial plan already, resolve to set goals for yourself. Like Newman a decade ago, you have to know where you’re going so you can figure out how to get there. Whether you want to buy a home, pay for college, lower debt or retire, you’ll have to do some research to figure out what you’ll need to do those things. Next, figure out where you are. That means looking at your income, assets, debts, loans and investments. Americans had a negative savings rate this year for the first time in nearly a half-century. Many people are living beyond their means, and by gathering and assessing their income and spending, you can figure out if you’re among them. Credit cards play a big part in spending, and warrant close attention, Armstrong said. If you find you’ve spent more than you’ve earned, running up your debt, it’s time to put the credit cards away. “If you can’t afford to buy something, don’t put it on the credit card. Put them in a drawer,” Armstrong said. “And pay as much as you can on them, every month. I’ve even advised people to get a second job. Go work for UPS for three or four months if you have to, but get them paid off.” Newman had to use her credit cards while training to become a real estate agent, racking up $8,000 in debt “just buying groceries,” but she recognized the value in paying that debt down quickly. “Never pay the minimum, otherwise you’ll be paying on those cards 30 years from now,” she said. “I also closed out ones I wasn’t using, but I kept the card I had the longest open, since that’s good for your credit score.” Another good resolution is to order your credit report. Recent changes in the law allow consumers to get a free copy of their credit report from each of the three reporting agencies – Trans Union, Equifax and Experian – by going to www.annualcreditreport.com or call (877) 322-8228. You might find old debts that are weighing on your credit score. Even if they’re just $50, they can reduce your score a great deal if they’ve gone unpaid for years or are charged off. You may also find improper reports that can be challenged and erased from your report. For homeowners, 2006 may be the last time it’s financially feasible to refinance mortgages, as interest rates are expected to start climbing next year. Stick with fixed-rate mortgages, Armstrong said, and close out lines of credit if possible. Finally, it’s always good to review your 401(k) retirement plan allocations. If your company has a matching 401(k), make sure you’re saving at least as much as your company is willing to match. “We have 10 employees at my firm, and we have a matching 401(k) plan,” Armstrong said. “We discovered three out of the 10 people were eligible for a 401(k) and weren’t even using it at all. And we’re financial planners. It’s absolutely critical to have.” Despite her success over the past decade, Newman has new resolutions for 2006. Last year, she started a new business, Cabana Kitten, which imports clothing from India and resells it online and in San Diego-area surf shops. She hoarded her real estate commission checks to live on, carefully planning each step. “This year, I resolve to make a living at this,” she said. “I hope to make $50,000, so that I can be independent.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And she swore it would be the last year waiting tables. “I looked around and thought, Is this what I want to be doing 10 years from now?” Newman said. “There was so much I wanted and until that point, I hadn’t even thought about how I was going to get there.” Ten years later, Newman, 35, is where she wants to be. She went from hand-to-mouth living to owning two condominiums in the San Diego area, one of which she rents out, and created a successful career in real estate sales. All it took was resolve. last_img read more

IPL 2016: Parthiv Patel, Ambati Rayudu star as Mumbai Indians crush Kings XI Punjab by 25 runs

first_imgDefending champions Mumbai Indians defeated Kings XI Punjab by 25 runs to bag their third victory in the ninth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali on Monday. (Scorecard)Mumbai rode on strong batting performances by Parthiv Patel (81) and Ambati Rayudu (65) to post 189/6 in 20 overs. The duo added 136 runs between them for the second wicket to lay the foundation for a big total.In reply, Punjab were lifted by an 89-run third wicket stand between Shaun Marsh (48) and Glenn Maxwell (56). But at the end, the combined brilliance of Mumbai pace trio — Jasprit Bumrah (3/26), Mitchell McClanaghan (3/32) and Tim Southee (2/28) — ensured that Punjab fall short by 25 runs, scoring 164/7.It was Mumbai’s second win in last five matches that takes them to the fifth spot in the points table, while Punjab succumbed to their hat-trick of losses and remained at the bottom. (Full IPL Coverage)In a match between two struggling sides, Punjab captain David Miller won the toss and asked Mumbai to bat. Mumbai had a shaky start as skipper Rohit Sharma lasted all of two balls before edging a Sandeep Sharma inswinger to the wicketkeeper.That was the only piece of celebration the Punjab players and their home crowd could indulge in for a considerable period of time as Patel and Rayudu proceeded to hit the bowlers to all parts of the ground.Opening the batting along with skipper Rohit, Parthiv batted almost till the end of the innings. The discarded India wicketkeeper showcased some superb batting form to plunder 81 runs off just 58 deliveries.advertisementHe smashed 10 boundaries and a couple of sixes to notch up his highest ever IPL score before falling to a well directed bouncer from veteran Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson.Parhiv’s entertaining strokeplay was well-matched by Rayudu at the other end. The 30-year-old right-hander slammed 65 runs off 37 deliveries with the help of four boundaries and an equal number of sixes.Rayudu finally fell to some poor shot selection as an attempted sweep off Axar Patel travelled straight to Manan Vohra at deep midwicket.Jos Buttler (24) walked in to play a fast paced innings full of innovative shots, hitting three boundaries and a massive six over long-on off Pardeep Sahu in his 12-ball stint. He was bowled by a slowish, incoming delivery from Mohit Sharma while attempting another big hit.That triggered a flurry of late wickets as the Punjab bowlers staged a late comeback. But by the time Johnson finally managed to send Parthiv back to the pavilion, Mumbai were well on their way to a big total.Mohit Sharma was the most successful among the Punjab bowlers. The medium-pacer was a bit expensive in a wicketless first spell, but did better in his second spell to return figures of 3/38. Sandeep Sharma (1/20), Axar patel (1/41) and Johnson (1/43) claimed a wicket each.And in reply, Punjab didn’t start well, losing opening batsmen Vohra (7) and Murali Vijay (19) inside the first five overs. While Vijay offered a catch to Jos Buttler at point off New Zealander Southee, Vohra gave a simple catch to the same fielder at cover points off Bumrah.The hosts needed a big partnership and Marsh and Maxwell rose up to the task. Maxwell, having scored a meager 39 runs in the previous matches, came good finally, hitting five fours and a six.They shared an 89-run stand for the third wicket before Southee returned to dismiss left-hander Marsh, who scored 45 runs in 34 balls.After his wicket in the final ball of the 15th over, the hosts needed 69 runs with seven wickets in hand. Bumrah almost sealed the match in Mumbai’s over in the 18th over as the right-armer removed the dangerous Maxwell and Nikhil Naik (1).With 49 required of two overs, it was always going to be a difficult task and it proved so. Another Kiwi pacer, McClanaghan ended Punjab’s hopes by scalping the wicket of Axar Patel (1) and Mitchell Johnson (0) in the penultimate over that yielded only 10 runs. Captain Miller scored a brisk 17-ball 30 but it was not enough.Brief scores:Mumbai Indians: 189/6 in 20 overs (Parthiv Patel 81, Ambati Rayudu 65; Mohit Sharma 3/38). Kings XI Punjab: 164/4 (Glenn Maxwell 56, Shaun Marsh 48; Jasprit Bumrah 3/26, Mitchell McClanaghan 3/32, Tim Southee 2/28).last_img read more

Alonso Hits 53rd HR, Sets Rookie Record As Mets Blank Braves (Pics,Vid)

first_imgAlonso raised both arms again, tilted his head back and looked to the sky.And then when he went to first base for the fourth inning, he pursed his lips, exhaled deeply, blinked over and over and dabbed at his eyes, his cheeks glistening with sweat and tears.“I was just kind of thinking about all the greats in the game of baseball. I was thinking about guys like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, guys like Aaron Judge,” Alonso said, “and the fact that I’m ahead of those guys as a rookie, it’s mind-blowing.”New York Mets’ Pete Alonso hits his 53rd home run of the season during the third inning of a baseball game against the Atlanta Braves, Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, in New York. (AP Photo/Adam Hunger)Third baseman Todd Frazier, who coined Alonso’s nickname Polar Bear during spring training, told the rookie to let out his emotions.“He had trouble rolling grounders in-between innings there,” manager Mickey Callaway said..A night after tying Judge’s record, Alonso launched a 93 mph fastball on a 1-2 count from former All-Star Mike Foltynewicz (8-6). The solo shot in the third boosted the lead to 3-0 and followed a two-run homer earlier in the inning by light-hitting backup catcher René Rivera.“When he puts it in play, you’re holding your breath,” Foltynewicz said. “He just hits the ball so damn hard.

No rookie since 1900 has won an outright home run title in the big leagues.“Pretty cool accomplishment,” Judge said after the Yankees’ game in Texas.He offered to take Alonso to dinner in the offseason — on Judge’s dime.“He’s paying for it? Oh, dang,” Alonso said. “Is he picking where we’re eating or am I picking? I’ll talk to him. But if he’s picking the place, it’s probably McDonald’s or something, because I eat a lot. But if I get to pick and it’s on him, then it may be like Peter Luger.”MOUND MATTERSSteven Matz (11-10) allowed two hits and five walks in six innings, finishing with a winning record for the first time since his first full season in 2016.
