Ex-England striker appointed first-team coach at Swansea

first_img1 James Beattie has joined Swansea as a first-team coach.The former England striker played with Swans boss Garry Monk at Southampton and has been drafted in to work alongside Kristian O’Leary and Alan Curtis on the staff at the Liberty Stadium.“James will come in as a first-team coach alongside Kristian O’Leary and Alan Curtis, but will be given specific responsibility to work on a technical level with our attacking players,” said Monk.“I’ve known James for a long time. He is intelligent, has a great knowledge of the game from his experiences as a player, coach and manager; plus he thinks about the game in the same way as myself.“He has some bright ideas and, despite already having a fantastic knowledge of the game, he is still looking to learn at every opportunity.“I’m constantly trying to create and improve all areas of the first team environment with young, talented and up-and-coming staff. That’s not just the playing squad, but the backroom staff as well.“James fits that criteria perfectly and with the experience he’s gained over the years, I’m sure the players will benefit greatly by tapping into his knowledge.”Beattie won five caps for England after making his senior debut for hometown club Blackburn in 1996 but he made his name during seven years at Southampton where he scored 76 goals in 223 appearancesHe completed a £6million switch to Everton in 2005 and later played for Sheffield United, Stoke, Rangers, Blackpool and Accrington.Beattie took his first steps into coaching at Accrington before becoming manager in May 2013 and the Lancashire club finished 15th in League Two in his first full season in charge before he left in September 2014.He was interviewed by both Mansfield and Burton for their managerial vacancies last season and admitted in January he was desperate to get back into football following his departure from Accrington.last_img read more

Internet filters, screens to hit county libraries

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved more than $534,000 to install filtering software, privacy screens and other accessories on computers at county libraries to block access to pornographic Web sites. The panel approved the funds 3-0, with Supervisors Gloria Molina and Zev Yaroslavsky absent. The vote comes after county library officials studied how to better manage sexually explicit material online at its 88 locations. Fifth District county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich ordered the study, prompted by complaints last August from a visitor to the Jo Anne Darcy Library in Canyon Country. The woman, accompanied by a child, was using a public computer when she caught sight of someone viewing pornographic Web sites on the next terminal. “We believe that today’s action will be a very positive step forward in creating an environment in our county libraries that is conducive to learning and safety for our young people,” said Tony Bell, an Antonovich spokesman. “The idea is to prevent the occurrence of children viewing graphic sexual content on the Internet.” The money includes $344,000 to purchase new monitors, finance the redesign of public computer layouts at 14 libraries to keep adult computers away from children, and additional filtering software. Another $190,162 will allow the county Department of Consumer Affairs to purchase new computer equipment. The monitors come with built-in privacy screens, which goes a long way in solving the problem, said Nancy Mahr, a county library spokeswoman. “The main problem – it’s related just to people inadvertently seeing something on another person’s computer,” she said. “That’s why we’re looking at a very basic filter as well as the privacy screens. “We’ve installed privacy screens that fit on the front of the monitors. They obscure vision a little bit, so people rip them out. We’ve found a monitor that has a built-in privacy screen that won’t interfere with vision.” It will take about six months to begin the program, Mahr said. Over the years, local libraries usually receive a few complaints from patrons about explicit material – most of which are handled locally. “(On the adult computers) there will be very basic filtering of explicitly visual sexual sites,” she said. “That’s all that will be blocked. If a site that has been blocked and a person needs to get it, we will lift the block on that computer for that person.” Asked whether the move constituted censorship, Bell said: “County taxpayers have no obligation to fund pornography in our county library. The county library will be implementing corrective measures to assure that county computers are not abused.” Though there are always concerns about content filters – they’re installed in fewer than 50 percent of the nation’s libraries, according to the American Library Association – the county’s policy is in step with current laws, in accordance with a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing the technology if it can be turned off upon request. “If they just turn off the filter, then they’re totally within the law, and the truth is we can live with that,” said Judith Krug, director for the Office of Intellectual Freedom at the association. “We hear from time to time that in response to a situation like what happened in L.A. County, that politicians will be making noises. But there has been very little follow-through on it, mainly because people get upset, and there are things like privacy screens.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Slaven Bilic urges Manuel Lanzini to fill Dimitri Payet’s shoes at West Ham

first_img The Argentinian midfielder has scored three goals against Crystal Palace Slaven Bilic has urged Manuel Lanzini to fill the void left by Dimitri Payet’s imminent West Ham walkout.France star Payet this week rocked the Hammers by telling them he wants to leave and is refusing to play against Crystal Palace.But Argentinian midfielder Lanzini has a handy knack of finding the net against the Eagles and can step out of Payet’s shadow at the London Stadium on Saturday.“Since I’ve been here we played Palace twice at Selhurst Park,” said Bilic.“Last year we won 3-1 and this year 1-0. Both of those were really good performances from us.“Lanzini has scored three goals against them. He scored in the first game last season, he scored in the 2-2 draw at Upton Park and he scored the winner in the 1-0 game this season.“Hopefully he is going to score again.”Bilic is hoping Payet’s actions will unite the rest of his squad.The Hammers boss has fought the 29-year-old’s corner all season, despite his dip in form following last term’s heroics and his sparkling displays at Euro 2016.So the sense of betrayal Bilic feels at Payet’s decision was palpable when the Croatian broke the news to the media on Thursday morning.Payet will be left in no doubt about the fans’ opinion when the match kicks off – the terrace chant ‘We’ve got Payet’ is expected to begin with a different, less favourable two words.But Bilic knows his players need to forget about their absent team-mate and concentrate on the task in hand, picking up three points to avoid being sucked back towards the relegation zone.“It’s going to be a demanding game in every sense,” he said. “Also it will be a nervous game from both teams, because of what’s at stake.“It’s a great opportunity for us to get back on the path in the league that we have shown in the last five or six games.“We haven’t got a big squad now left, we just have the players for this game. But we have enough players to put a strong team out and have good players on the bench.“It is the team that I am managing. Many times clubs have lost quality players but gained a team.” 1last_img read more

Woman guilty in husband’s fatal stabbing

first_imgMARTINEZ, Calif. – A suburban housewife serving as her own attorney was convicted Friday of fatally stabbing her therapist husband, ending a circus-like trial in which she cross-examined two of her sons and discussed her psychic powers. Susan Polk, 48, was convicted of second-degree murder in the October 2002 killing of Felix Polk, 70, at the couple’s home in Orinda, about 15 miles east of San Francisco. Polk wept slightly before the jury entered the standing-room-only courtroom, but did not when the verdict was read. After the jury left, Polk told Judge Laurel Brady that the case against her was built on “fabrication and suppression of the evidence by county officials.” She faces a mandatory term of 15 years to life in prison when she is sentenced July 14 in Contra Costa Superior Court. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Prosecutors had sought a first-degree murder conviction, arguing that Polk plotted to kill her husband so she could get his multimillion-dollar estate. But Polk countered that her husband died after she fought back in self-defense after years of abuse. Polk was a 14-year-old when she began seeing Felix Polk as her therapist. It took the jury three days to reach a verdict in the 14-week trial, which juror Kathy Sommese described as a struggle. Jurors did not think the killing was premeditated, but they had a hard time believing Polk. “We didn’t think Susan was credible,” said jury forewoman Lisa Cristwell. Sommese added that Polk was “delusional.” While on the stand, Polk discussed secret government experiments, psychic powers and the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, claiming she predicted the World Trade Center attacks but that her husband prevented her from alerting authorities. Polk was animated and often angry throughout the trial.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Ailing hotel guests leave their germs behind, study shows

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John Phillips“We know that viruses can survive on surfaces for a long time – more than four days,” said Dr. Birgit Winther, an ear, nose and throat specialist at the university who led the study. Its aim was to test the survival of rhinoviruses, which cause about half of all colds, especially in children. Researchers had 15 people with lab-confirmed rhinovirus colds spend a night in individual rooms at a nearby hotel and, after they checked out, tested 10 items they said they had touched. About one-third of the objects were contaminated with rhinovirus. “We were surprised to find so many,” Winther said. Virus was found on seven out of 14 door handles and six of 14 pens. Six out of 15 light switches, TV remotes and faucets tested positive, as did five of 15 phones. Shower curtains, coffee makers and alarm clocks also harbored viruses. Experts did not test items such as bedspreads because cloth dries out germs. Several months later, five of the 15 participants were asked to return to the hotel and visit rooms where certain items had been deliberately contaminated with their own mucus, which had been frozen previously when they had their colds. Because they had developed immunity to these germs, doctors could study how easily they picked them up without putting them at risk of getting sick. Each volunteer visited two rooms, and their hands were tested afterward for viruses. Results were positive on 60percent of contacts in rooms where mucus had dried for at least an hour, and on 33percent of those in rooms where mucus had dried overnight. The study was sponsored by Reckitt-Benckiser Inc., makers of Lysol, but did not test any products. Doctors with no ties to the company designed the study to lay the groundwork for future research on germs and ways to get rid of them. Some in the hotel industry say they have strict policies on how to disinfect rooms. “We do wipe everything down, from the remote control to the telephone,” said Michelle Pike, corporate director of housekeeping for Hilton brand hotels. Hilton, like many hotels, has taken steps to make common items easier to clean, like encasing phone books in plastic and replacing bedspreads with duvet covers than can be washed between each guest, she said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN FRANCISCO – Hotel guests leave behind more than just socks and old paperbacks: A new study found viruses on TV remotes, light switches and even hotel pens after cold sufferers checked out. The germ testing was done before the rooms were cleaned, so it likely overstates the risks that most travelers would face. Nevertheless, it shows the potential hazards if a hotel’s turnaround amounts to little more than changing the sheets and wiping out the tub. “You sure hope the cleaning people were good,” said Dr. Owen Hendley, the University of Virginia pediatrician who presented results of the study Friday at a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology. Besides hotel hazards, the findings point out things that people might not think to clean when someone has a cold. last_img read more

Experiment quite a coo

first_imgThe Bay Area Air Quality Management District already monitors air pollution at 28 stations, and the data gathered by pigeons would be redundant, said Holly Mattern, spokeswoman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. “It’s an experiment with animals that is unnecessary,” Mattern said. “It just shows bad decision-making on a lot of people’s parts.” UC Irvine’s animal-ethics panel reviewed the project and found it was harmless. “It’s not that they don’t feel it at all, but they’re capable of carrying it,” da Costa said of the pigeons. “They’re trained to do it, and the worst that can happen is that they fly, then take a rest.” The birds fly for about half an hour at between 300 and 500 feet. Their value to air-quality researchers comes from their mobility, since they could potentially fill in pollution information between the stationary monitors researchers have to rely on, investigators said. “This is about raising awareness, and rethinking the way we gather data,” da Costa said. “In this case, we’re doing it in a fun way, using homing pigeons.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO – Pigeons with backpacks and cell phones will be taking to the sky and sending air-quality data to a blog as part of a whimsical project that blends science, art and activism. Investigators at the University of California, Irvine, hope the winged researchers will fill in gaps in knowledge about the air we breathe, and bring nonscientists into the debate on air quality. “They transmit in real time, and all the information is available to the public,” said Beatriz da Costa, a UC Irvine professor of arts, computation and engineering. The pigeons will fly over the Silicon Valley today as part of ZeroOne San Jose, a technology and art exhibit. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.Da Costa said the project was inspired by both the haze she saw hovering over Los Angeles when she moved to the city three years ago and a century-old photo of a pigeon carrying a spy camera around its neck. “They were heavily used in World War II by several European countries,” da Costa said of homing pigeons. “So I started thinking, what could we surveil right now that would be in the social interest?” The birds will carry miniature backpacks equipped with a Global Positioning System monitor, pollution sensors and cell-phone transmitting equipment that can send the data directly to a blog, where it is overlaid on Google maps. Visitors then can roll over the maps and learn about air pollution in the area. It took da Costa and two graduate students working with her a year to develop equipment that is small and light enough, at 1.3 ounces, for the one-pound birds to carry. Still, the project has drawn opposition from animal-rights advocates, who questioned its scientific validity in a letter to UC Irvine’s chancellor last week, saying the experiment could “result in injury and exhaustion for the birds.” last_img read more

Malmo boss sends warning to crisis-hit Chelsea ahead of Europa League showdown

first_imgMalmo will also be boosted by a sold-out away crowd at the Bridge, and Rosler says there will be a ‘party’ atmosphere in the stands from travelling supporters.“For us, it’s the first time our club is out of the group stages in a European cup competition, so it’s party time!“We sold all our tickets, 3,500 people are coming from south Sweden and it will be party time in west London.” huge blow Maurizio Sarri is under the cosh at Chelsea REVEALED BEST OF MONEY no dice Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade ADVICE Malmo boss Uwe Rosler is hoping to cash in on Chelsea’s cup dilemma when they head to Stamford Bridge for Thursday night’s Europa League last 32 clash.The Blues lead the tie after their first leg victory in Sweden, but their 2-1 win means it is far from over for the visitors who will look to claim a shock result in London.And they will be surely be boosted by the pressure on manager Maurizio Sarri ahead of a crucial run of games, which could save his job or signal the end of his brief spell at the Bridge. REVEALED Sarri is very likely to have one eye on Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Manchester City – where a win, avenging their 6-0 defeat earlier this month, would arguably end the calls for his departure.But the Europa League is important to the club too. If Chelsea miss out on a top four place – they currently sit sixth in the Premier League – the European competition is the only other way they can quality for the Champions League next season.So the Blues may well be torn over what to focus on, and should Sarri rest his top stars on Thursday night it can only be good news for Rosler and his underdogs.
