Chelsea come from behind to defeat Porto

Tuesday, March 6, 2007

Chelsea FC 2(3) 1(2) FC Porto
Match Stats
Attendance 39041
Goalscorers for Chelsea FC Robben (48′), Ballack (79′)
Goalscorers for FC Porto Quaresma (15′)
Bookings (Chelsea FC) Robben, Diarra (Yellow (2))
Bookings (FC Porto) Quaresma, Fucile, Adriano (Yellow (3))

Chelsea survived a Champions League scare today after coming back from 1-0 down to defeat Portuguese side Porto at Stamford Bridge in London. The first leg of the match ended 1-1, giving Chelsea the advantage thanks to the away goals rule, and Porto needed a win or a draw of 2 all or higher to advance to the next round. Porto fielded a defensive side, leaving Portuguese international striker Helder Postiga out of the starting lineup, while Chelsea featured Andriy Shevchenko and Didier Drogba on attack.

Shevchenko almost opened the scoring early in the game, having a poweful shot from 20 yard fly just over the bar and out of play. The early attack did little to inspire Chelsea though, as they looked sluggish for the first parts of the game. Porto took advantage of Chelsea’s poor start, and scored in the 15th minute on a counter attack. Lopez quickly passed the ball up to Gonzales in the center of the pitch, who split the defence with a well aimed ball that released Quaresma on a break away. The Portuguese player made no mistake about his shot, and slid it neatly past Petr Cech to give the visiting team the lead. Chelsea vainly attempted to draw level, but none of their first half chances were able to find the target to trouble keeper da Helton. Chelsea had a claim for a penalty nearing 35 minutes when Arjen Robben after he was apparently tripped up by Raul Moreiles, but the Dutch midfielded was awarded a yellow card instead for his theatrical dive. Chelsea’s defence supplied the most attack for the English Champions, as Ashley Cole made a fine cross into the box which was poorly cleared by Ricardo Costa, and the Ball broke for Michael Ballack. Costa was quick to justify his mistake and he poked the ball away from Ballack before he could get a shot away. The biggest worry for Porto came when Jorge Fucile was struck in the face by the trailing arm off a teammate, and left the field with blood streaming from his nose.

The second half saw Fucile retake the pitch, his injury obviously not too serious. Chelsea made a change to start the second half, adding John Obi Mikel in place of Claude Makelele. It took Chelsea only 3 minutes after the restart to get back into the match, and the goal came through Arjen Robben. The Dutchman cleaved a shot from 25 yards, and even though it lack power, de Helton was not able to get a grip on it and the ball slipped past him into the net. The goal tied not only the game, but also the series, and the scoreline would force extra time. Chelsea wouldn’t allow the game to get that far though, and Ashley Cole, Andriy Shevchenko and Michael Ballack all contributed to the winning goal. A cross by Cole was headed down by Shevy, and neatly volleyed into the net by the German Ballack. Porto pressed, but the Chelsea defence easily coped, and Chelsea advanded to next round of the Champions League.

Asbestos victims file 6.6 billion yen class action lawsuit in Tokyo

Saturday, May 17, 2008

Construction workers and next of kin of deceased workers filed a lawsuit in Tokyo, Japan Friday seeking damages of approximately 6.6 billion yen (about US$64 million) from the government and manufacturers related to illnesses stemming from exposure to asbestos. 178 plaintiffs; including construction workers and family members filed the suit in Tokyo District Court against 46 building manufacturers and the Government of Japan.

According to the Mainichi Daily News, the class action suit is the first that has been filed in Japan related to health damages caused by asbestos exposure at construction sites. The plaintiffs hail from the Japanese prefectures of Tokyo, Saitama and Chiba.

The plaintiffs claim that the government and manufacturers knew of the dangers of asbestos inhalation but failed to take proper precautions, including ceasing to promote asbestos as a cheap fire retardant and banning production of the material.

They state that after inhaling asbestos in the workplace, 172 people have developed lung cancer or mesothelioma, and that almost half of those afflicted are now dead. Plaintiffs argue that the government and health ministry did not act quickly enough after international organizations issued warnings in 1972 that asbestos could be a carcinogen.

Plaintiffs also place blame with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry for sanctioning the use of asbestos under Japanese Industrial Standards, and with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport for approving the use of materials comprised of asbestos and other substances under Japan’s Building Standards Law.

We will do our utmost until we win the suit.

“We will do our utmost until we win the suit,” said Kazuo Miyajima, 78, who heads the group of plaintiffs. Lawyers for the plaintiffs released a statement saying: “We seek complete relief for the victims by clarifying the liability of the state and the manufacturers.”

Approximately 40 construction workers from Kanagawa Prefecture plan to file a similar lawsuit in June in Yokohama District Court.

After a 2005 revelation that residents who lived near a factory in Amagasaki, Hyogo Prefecture developed diseases related to asbestos, the government implemented a law in 2006 which provides monetary assistance to asbestos victims and relatives of deceased family members. The plaintiffs argue that the amount of financial assistance given to families and victims of asbestos-related diseases is not sufficient.

Asbestos has been used in Japan as a fire retardant, for sound absorption, and for insulation. It was mixed in concrete and water and sprayed on walls and ceilings, but the practice of spraying asbestos in this manner was banned in Japan in 1975.

Ways Funeral Directors In Middletown Can Help Survivors Handle Arrangements For A Loved One Who Has Recently Passed

byAlma Abell

After a loved one passes, it can be a very emotional and difficult time for those they leave behind. Unfortunately, those who the deceased person was closest to are generally the ones who must begin planning the burial, cremation and funeral for their loved one. While many times a person may have left detailed instructions on how they want their remains to be handled, often they have not and this means the loved one will be responsible for making these types of decisions as well. This can be a lot for a person who is grieving to handle and often speaking to Funeral Directors in Middletown can be beneficial in helping them to get through this process.

In most cases, planning a burial or cremation will involve a number of choices and decisions to be made. Often just making these types of decisions during such an emotional time can be overwhelming for the survivors. By having a professional who not only understands the process but also what the survivors are going through, it can be much easier for everyone to handle.

Funeral Directors in Middletown will know what types of arrangements need to be made for the body and any services being planned. They can help by guiding the survivors charged with making the arrangements through the various steps in the process. From obtaining the body from the morgue or other facility to preparing it for a funeral or cremation, a funeral director will know what needs to be done and will handle it quickly and efficiently.

Once the decisions about burial or cremation have been made, a funeral director from a business, like John P. Condon Funeral Home, will be able to help the family in choosing the casket or urn for the remains. They can also make sure the family has a burial plot or other type of arrangements if necessary.

The funeral directors are generally also helpful in setting up a service at a chapel or other type of facility as well. Most funeral homes offer these types of facilities for use during the wake, funeral or memorial service. While the family can set these types of services up to reflect their personal needs, the funeral home will often be on hand to help in guiding them through the various options available and can often provide music, a speaker or other services as needed as well.

NYSE to merge with Archipelago; NASDAQ to buy Instinet

Sunday, April 24, 2005

New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) announced last Wednesday that it has agreed definitively to merge with Chicago-based Archipelago Exchange (ArcaEx) and form a new publicly traded, for-profit company known as NYSE Group. This announcement was followed two days later by NASDAQ®, which independently announced a definitive agreement to purchase Instinet Group.

Archipelago and Instinet are innovative e-trading (electronic trading) companies, and formerly were the two largest American rivals to NYSE and NASDAQ, in recent years taking increasingly large portions of their market share. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other regulatory agencies still have to review and approve the transactions, particularly with respect to US securities law and antitrust law, in order to ensure that the marketplace remains lawful and competitive.

Other pending issues for NASDAQ include obtaining the approval of Instinet shareholders, as well as customary closing conditions. NYSE must obtain the approval of its members and Archipelago shareholders.

These changes, a reaction to increased e-trading competition and a changed regulatory environment, will result in NASDAQ and NYSE trading each other’s shares and attempting to grab market share, which many hope will drive down transaction costs and ultimately benefit consumers. However, at least one commentator, Dan Ackman writing in Forbes, has noted that the trading commission at the NYSE currently averages less than a nickel (US$0.05) per share, and was less enthusiastic about potential efficiency gains from electronic trading at the exchange.

The transactions are also intended to make the two leading American stock exchanges more globally competitive with such exchanges as the London Stock Exchange, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the Toronto Stock Exchange, and the Australian Stock Exchange located in Sydney.

Kenya Airways jet with at least 114 on board crashes

Sunday, May 6, 2007

Officials say that a Kenya Airways Boeing 737-800 with 8 crew members, 106 passengers and a flight engineer on board, has crashed in Cameroon.

Flight KQ 507 was traveling from Abidjan to Nairobi. It made a stopover in Douala, Cameroon where more passengers got on the plane, before it continued on its flight.

It is not known if there are any survivors, but Kenya Airways says that there were passengers from at least 23 different countries on the plane (list below).

Reports say that 3 referees heading to an African Confederation Cup game were also on the plane along with Anthony Mitchell a British journalist who is based in Nairobi, and Amol Chauhan the director of Parle Products.

“Flight 507 was coming from Abidjan via Douala. The aircraft unfortunately has not arrived. The last message was received in Douala after takeoff and thereafter the tower was unable to contact the plane,” CEO of Kenya Airways, Titus Naikuni said earlier in a statement.

Reports say that the plane sent a distress signal at 2:00 a.m., just after it took off from Cameroon, but it is not known what triggered the distress signal. The plane was supposed to land at 6:15 a.m. local time. It left Abidjan at 11:05 p.m. local time in Nairobi.

“The distress call came from a machine, not a pilot. The latest information that a distress signal was picked up on the west coast of Africa and a search and rescue mission initiated by Cameroonian authorities was initiated at 1105 (0805GMT) this morning, that is Nairobi time. So far no report has been received from this mission,” added Naikuni. The Cameroonian military is using helicopters to search the area around the Cameroonian capital Yaoundé, near the town of Douala, Niete and Lolodorf. Ambulances in Lolodorf are ready to treat anyone they might find during the search.

The plane is believed to be in an “area [of] very dense forest,” said Alfred Mutua, a spokesman for Kenya’s government. The United States is also assisting in searching for the plane.

Jim Proulx, a company spokesman for Boeing, said that the distress signal would have been activated “in the event of a rapid change in velocity.” Proulx also expressed his sympathies saying, “we express our profound concern for the passengers and crew on board on the Kenya Airways flight that went missing.”

According to Kenya Airways, bad weather is causing delays in efforts to locate the plane and any possible wreckage. “We are trying to get to the area of the crash, but the weather is really bad. We are getting help from the army,” said Naikuni. Nothing was found during a search of the area by air on Saturday, but rescue workers are planning to resume the search Sunday morning. Because of the bad weather and heavy rains, the search has only been concentrated in the air.

Witnesses from towns near where the signal is being reported say that they heard a “large boom” and then saw a “flash of fire.”

According to a Kenya Airways news release, a crisis management center in Embakasi, a location close to the airport, was setup to monitor the situation and additional details will be provided when received. Relatives of those on board the plane are being asked to stay at that location and wait for further details.

Despite the search, the TurkishPress.com, which quotes AFP, an unnamed official says that they have located the wreckage.

“The plane has crashed. We have located the plane … and we cannot talk about it,” said the unnamed official with the Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority.

Despite the AFP’s report, Naikuni says he cannot confirm that the plane has crashed or if anything was found. “Until we see the plane — until then, it’s missing.” Naikuni also added that the distress signal could have been triggered by something other than a crash.

The last Kenya Airways flight to crash was on January 30, 2000. Flight 431 was traveling from Abidjan to Lagos when it crashed into the Atlantic Ocean during bad weather. 179 people were on board and 10 survived.

Want Better Sensual Activity? Dress For The Part}

Submitted by: J Dugan

For many people, one of the lures of coupling is the chance to be bare with another person. But what if one could have even better sensual activity by staying clothed? For some couples, especially those who have been together for a while, it can pay to dress up for sensual activity in a manner of speaking. Wearing a little outfit to bed wont take the place of maintaining excellent male organ care, but it may add a little zest and zing to that thing called lovemaking.

Not role playing

Deciding to dress the part for coupling isnt necessarily about role playing although couples should definitely investigate that as an option for keeping the sensual fires stoked. Role playing involves taking on a whole new persona, pretending to be someone else, in order to add a sense of excitement, mystery or intrigue to sensual escapades.

No, what is being discussed here is simply the idea of having sensual activity while clothed in some degree or another. Its an experience that most people have had at some point in their lives. But often its something associated with days when sensual activity was furtive for a person. Clothes remained on because a couple was making out in the backseat of the car or on the sofa in the living room, just a few steps away from where a parent or two was lightly sleeping.

When people become adults, its something that occurs less frequently. Yes, a quickie in the bathroom of a bar or in the supply room at work may involve simply a loosening of the fly and lifting of the skirt. But more often coupling becomes about getting totally bare with another person. And thats a lovely and quite enjoyable thing.

A change

But engaging in coupling while clad becomes exciting when its something a couple hasnt tried for a while. In some cases, it brings back those memories of early sensual days, and that adds a renewed touch of excitement. It may also allow a couple to fantasize that they are with one of their earlier partners. (This doesnt mean they regret sleeping with their current partner, but people may like to fantasize about a different person in their arms on occasion.)

But there also can just be something arousing about being with a person who is partially clad. For example, a man who sits down at the breakfast table wearing a shirt, tie and socks, but no pants or underwear or a woman who greets her partner at the door with a bare chest is presenting a very sensual image.

A little says a lot

There are any number of ways a person can present themselves in a partially clad manner. Men can simply enter a room with their fly down and their manhood out. A woman may wear a blouse and thigh-high hose with no panties or skirt. Being bare but for socks, a hat or a scarf can add an extra sense of allurement to a situation.

Sometimes a couple may start out in a semi-clad manner but completely doff their clothes when they get into the actual sensual act. But others find that keeping some clothing on while becoming intimate heightens the experience even more. Theres no right or wrong only what helps get the couple excited.

Opting for a dress up situation is one way to look for better sensual activity, but a man also wants to make sure his manhood is in proper shape for any kind of fun. Regularly applying a top drawer male organ health crme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help maintain that precious health. Ideally, the selected crme will contain both acetyl L-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid. The former is an amino acid which helps protect against peripheral nerve damage from rough sensual activity (which can be fun but can cause damage). The latter is a potent antioxidant that the free radicals that can lead to aging, wrinkled member skin. Alone, these two are bang-up ingredients; together, theres a synergistic relationship that makes them even more effective.
