Brighton are set to sign 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain prospect Romaric Yapi. L’Equipe were first to report the move, with Goal sources having confirmed that the promising young French player is expected to have his medical and sign his first professional contract with the Premier League outfit on Thursday.Initially deployed as an attacking player for PSG at youth levels, Yapi made the transition to right-back last season under the tutelage of Under-19 boss Thiago Motta.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? He is the latest in a line of PSG youngsters to leave the club in search of more chances at first-team football. Earlier this summer Wolves confirmed the capture of fellow defender Raphael Nya, who captained the French outfit’s U19s last season, with the Molineux outfit having also registered an interest in bringing in Yapi before being beaten to his signing by Brighton. The French club have also lost a couple of more seasoned prospects during the summer window, with promising young forwards Moussa Diaby and Timothy Weah leaving the club for Bayer Leverkusen and Lille respectively. The loss of Yapi will nott be felt as keenly as those, with the defender having as yet not made any real breakthrough into the first-team plans for Thomas Tuchel. He could be of great value to Brighton, however, with the club looking to avoid another season of fighting relegation. New manager Graham Potter will be hoping to see his side better their results from last season, which saw them finish 16th in the league table, and part of the transition will be helping a defence that shipped 60 goals last term. Yapi could also help bolster a struggling attack that notched just 35 league goals. The signing of Yapi continues a trend for the club this summer of bringing in promising younger players, with centre-back Adam Webster (24), winger Leandro Trossard (24), and forward Neal Maupay (22) having all been signed by the Seagulls Brighton kick off their new season on Saturday and will hope to get the campaign off to a strong start by picking up points away from home against Watford.

___Stocks plunge again as Huawei arrest renews China tensionsNEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks clawed most of their way back from a deep slide Thursday that at one point had wiped out the market’s gains for the year. An early sell-off briefly knocked more than 700 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average as the arrest of a senior Chinese technology executive threatened to cause another flare-up in tensions between Washington and Beijing. The sell-off eased following a report saying the Fed is considering a wait-and-see approach to rate hikes.___China demands Canada release executive of tech giant HuaweiBEIJING (AP) — China on Thursday demanded that Canada release an executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei who was arrested in a case that compounds tensions with the U.S. and threatens to complicate trade talks.

The pledge, made today at a meeting in Nairobi with HABITAT Executive Director Anna Tibaijuka, comes over and above German support for specific project programmes.During their talks Mrs. Tibaijuka voiced appreciation for Germany’s continued support and highlighted the challenges of poverty in a rapidly urbanizing world, especially in Africa’s growing slums.She also explained the agency’s coordinating role in helping governments achieve the Millennium Development Goals – adopted at a 2000 UN summit – of significantly improving the lives of 100 million slum dwellers by 2020, and of halving the number of people who lack access to safe water and sanitation by 2015. Specifically, she described efforts to upgrade a programme currently underway in the Nairobi slum of Kibera – the largest in Africa – aimed at bettering the conditions of residents.Chancellor Schröder pledged further commitments to projects to help overcome the challenge of rapid urbanization, particularly in Africa. read more
“Democracy requires that all of the public be outraged when there are examples of corruption; the public must have the ability to engage in the processes that put a check on issues of corruption,” said the UN Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Recovery and Governance, Jordan Ryan, in the Liberian capital at the signing ceremony.The grants were awarded by the UN Democracy Fund (UNDEF), a new financing mechanism, established last year and supported by Member States contributions, to promote democracy and human rights.“Participation in the activities of UNDEF is a badge of achievement and signifies a high level of commitment to democratic values,” the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) added in a statement. “Liberia should be proud to have been awarded” the two grants, said Mr. Ryan.The anti-corruption grant – worth $360,000 – is being directed to the country’s Governance Reform Commission (GRC) which is charged with setting up a “national integrity framework” to promote transparency, accountability and the rule of law, with the aim of substantially minimising or eliminating corruption.The other, funded at $120,000 over two years, is a legislative study grant is aimed at strengthening the professionalism of the legislature and encouraging the participation of youth in the democratic process.“These grants demonstrate that peacekeeping is not only about ensuring security or silencing the guns but also about sustaining peace,” said Edwin Snowe, the House of Representatives speaker, expressing his appreciation for the UN’s continued efforts to rebuild the country. “By empowering our young Liberians, the UN is not only setting the pace for lasting peace but also ensuring that we can all live together and develop our nation as one people.”Liberia is recovering from a brutal 14-year civil war that ended after claiming 150,000 lives. UNMIL, which was set up in 2003 to secure a ceasefire and support a subsequent peace process, has more than 14,800 military and police personnel. The Security Council recently extended its mandate until the end of September 2007.UNMIL played a critical role in supporting and overseeing last year’s elections which selected a new Senate and House of Representatives and also elected Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa.Alan Doss, the lead UN official in Liberia, recently said the UN’s work in Liberia is “not yet done,” while noting the continuing threat of cross-border arms trafficking and mercenaries.“The UN Security Council has just extended our mandate because it knows that Liberia still needs UN help to deal with the many challenges that lie ahead as the country begins to rebuild itself,” he said earlier this month. read more

Pioneering Coventry-based SME Microcab and hydrogen fuel cell specialists Arcola have taken up a one-week residency at SMMT’s Westminster headquarters to showcase their 2013 Life Without Oil project. Starting today, the manufacturers will be exhibiting the innovative Microcab H2EV fuel cell electric car and an Arcola hydrogen fuel cell.Measuring just 3.5 metres in length, the Microcab H2EV boasts a Lotus-engineered bonded-aluminium chassis, weighing just 60kg and allowing for both passenger car and commercial vehicle body-styles. Its Arcola/Horizon fuel cell allows the vehicle to travel up to 180 miles on a single 1.8kg tank of hydrogen, which can be filled in just three minutes.Available in either hybrid or full fuel cell electric guise, the H2EV’s twin 72V motors provide peak power of 40kW, allowing for a top speed of 55mph. Launched in 2010 with technical partners Arcola Energy, Coventry University, Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, Hydrogen South Africa and MIRA, the Microcab H2EV sells approximately 5,000 units worldwide each year.While the infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is still in its infancy, projects such as the government-led UK H2Mobility, which aims to install 65 charging stations across the UK by 2015 and 1,150 by 2030, are helping to make it a sustainable alternative to conventional fuels. This is further supported by initiatives such as Club H, the world’s first fuel cell car club, which allows its 12,000 users access to 1,000 vehicles across London.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more
Then-junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) rushes the ball during a game against Iowa Oct. 19 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 34-24. Miller announced Thursday that he would be returning to OSU for his fifth season. Credit: Lantern file photoBraxton Miller will remain at Ohio State for his fifth and final year of eligibility, the redshirt senior quarterback announced Thursday via an article from The Columbus Dispatch.The announcement puts to rest the steady flow of rumors about the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year transferring from OSU.“I’m from Ohio, this is my home state,” Miller told The Dispatch. “This is where I started and this is where I’m going to finish it.”Miller missed the entire 2014 campaign after injuring his right shoulder in late August, just 10 days before the Buckeyes’ season began.Redshirt freshman QB J.T. Barrett started all 12 of the Scarlet and Gray’s regular season games in place of Miller, setting 19 school and Big Ten records along the way. His season ended early after he injured his ankle against Michigan on Nov. 29.Redshirt sophomore Cardale Jones took over the reins for Barrett and led the Buckeyes’ on a historic three-game run to capture the program’s eighth national championship.Both Barrett and Jones will be back in Columbus in the fall to compete for OSU’s starting quarterback job.Miller’s announcement today also included his plans to continue playing quarterback and compete with Barrett and Jones for the vacancy.Miller, who boasts a 28-8 record as OSU’s starting QB, said he will welcome the competition for the starting job but he knows that he is “the best athlete in college football,” and if he encounters a competition, he plans to “be smart about things” and “stay looking forward.”As for the health of his recovering shoulder, Miller said the only reason the doctors say he is not 100 percent yet is due to the rotation in his throwing arm.However, the Huber Heights, Ohio, native added that he is doing all the same exercises that his teammates are doing and that he does not have “any pain, or aches, or anything like that.”The anticipated three-way competition will be in full swing come early August, when the Buckeyes begin preseason practice.OSU coach Urban Meyer will have to name his starter by Sept. 7, as the Scarlet and Gray are scheduled to take on Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., at 8:00 p.m. in the 2015 season opener. read more
Dan Marino24224018,80612,312 CAREER ADJUSTED YARDS OVER … Dan Fouts18117113,0408,251 Drew Brees21121015,5149,400 Boomer Esiason1871738,0033,838 Aaron Rodgers11911210,4827,430 Tony Romo1311259,2405,845 Sunday was bittersweet for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Playing against the Kansas City Chiefs, Manning broke Brett Favre’s NFL record for most career passing yards when he completed a 4-yard pass to Ronnie Hillman in the first quarter. But aside from setting that new all-time high, Manning could scarcely have had a worse day. It was, statistically, the worst performance of his career — he went 5 for 20 with 35 yards, zero touchdowns, four interceptions and two sacks — and it ended with Manning benched in the third quarter amid a chorus of boos. (Later, we learned that Manning had a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot.)It was also a tough game for us here at FiveThirtyEight. We’re on record as considering Manning to (probably) be the greatest quarterback in football history, an opinion informed by everything from his personal statistics to his comebacks and the catastrophic harm that came to his team when he was unable to play. So our jaws were agape as we witnessed the once-great Manning throw incompletion after incompletion, pick after wobbly pick.But one game does not change a guy’s legacy. Manning has been so good over his career that he’d have to replicate his Sunday performance — a game so bad it ranks among the worst two dozen or so in modern NFL history — every week for nearly an entire season before he ceased to be the top statistical passer ever.To figure out how good Manning has been, I used a formula created by Chase Stuart of the excellent FootballPerspective.com.1 The formula is based on Pro-Football-Reference.com’s adjusted net yards per attempt, and it judges the value that a quarterback accumulates over a league average quarterback.2 Applying it to every QB’s numbers since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger — and adding a wrinkle in which we also compare his adjusted yards to those of a backup-caliber passer — we can generate a list of the greatest statistical quarterbacks of all time: Joe Montana19216413,8579,344 Steve Young16914311,0227,638 John Elway2342319,5893,743 Ken Anderson19217210,4846,385 PASSERGAMESSTARTSA BACKUP QBLEAGUE AVERAGE Philip Rivers15715310,2416,210 Brett Favre30229814,3576,337 Peyton Manning26526522,89815,644 Warren Moon2082039,2333,752 Roger Staubach1251138,6465,994 According to our version of Stuart’s metric, Manning didn’t need to break Favre’s yardage record Sunday to cement his status as the G.O.A.T. That’s because he owned that distinction as far back as 2012, when his lifetime values over both an average and a backup passer outstripped those of former Dolphins QB Dan Marino. Since then, Manning has continued to add to his greatness, particularly after he posted yet another of the best passing seasons ever in 2013.Now the gap between Manning and the field is so wide that it would take Manning 12 consecutive games exactly like his outing Sunday (299 adjusted yards of value below average, by far the worst game of Manning’s 17-year NFL career) for Manning to fall behind Marino in those value over average rankings. And if we’re comparing Manning and Marino to backup QBs rather than average ones, it would take 15 straight games like Sunday’s (-282 adjusted yards of value, again the worst game of Manning’s career) for Manning to dip below Marino and into second place.In other words, Manning is pretty firmly entrenched as the best statistical passer ever. Even though he was way (way!) off his game on Sunday and his plantar fascia injury could have serious repercussions for his career going forward, Sunday’s dreadful game in some ways serves to help us further appreciate how great Manning was when he was at his best.

Wikipedia se dote d’un système de notationLa fondation Wikimedia teste depuis le mois de mai un système permettant de noter les articles de son encyclopédie participative, Wikipedia. Un outil qui s’apprête à être étendu, mais pour l’heure seulement dans sa partie anglophone.Afin d’améliorer la qualité de ses articles, l’encyclopédie en ligne participative Wikipedia va se doter d’un système de notation, annonce la fondation Wikimedia sur son blog. Car si l’encyclopédie est devenue une vraie référence pour nombre d’internautes, certains de ces articles contiennent encore des inexactitudes.La fondation a mis en place ce système d’appréciation pour offrir aux lecteurs passifs de Wikipedia la possibilité de donner leur avis sur les fiches qu’ils consultent. Wikimedia espère ainsi leur donner l’envie de participer à leur tour à l’enrichissement de son encyclopédie en ligne. Les résultats de la phase de tests lancée en mai ayant été concluants – 90% des personnes interrogées par un sondage interne ont jugé le système utile -, la fondation entend désormais étendre cet outil de notation à l’ensemble de ses contenus anglophones. Les internautes seront alors invités à juger la fiabilité, l’exhaustivité, l’objectivité mais aussi la qualité de rédaction des articles Wikipedia. Les fiches pourront ainsi être classées en fonction de leur notation, symbolisée par des étoiles. Pour l’heure, Wikimedia n’évoque pas l’extension de ce système aux autres langues. Mais si sa version anglophone est un succès, gageons que les pages françaises de Wikipedia seront elles aussi bientôt dotées de l’outil de notation.Le 21 juillet 2011 à 09:48 • Maxime Lambert read more

A 17-year-old girl died on Aug. 12 after being struck by a stray bullet in Northeast, D.C. earlier in the week, D.C. police said. Jamahri Sydnor, a resident from Northeast D.C., was driving in the 1400 block of Saratoga Avenue, NE around 3:32 p.m. when she was shot in the head, police said.According to police reports, on Aug. 10, two suspected shooters approached the intersections of Saratoga and Montana Avenues in the Brentwood neighborhood. The shooters hid behind bushes at the front of a residence, and opened fire at a crowd of people gathering across the street outside an apartment building.Jamahri Sydnor, 17, was killed by a stray bullet in Northeast D.C. on Aug. 10. (Courtesy photo)Police said Sydnor was driving through the neighborhood when she was hit by the gunfire, and then crashed into a parked car.Authorities arrived to the scene and found Sydnor, a recent graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School in Northwest D.C., inside of the vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound.

Costa Rica and Canada both sit atop Group A of theCONCACAF Gold Cup with four points, after playing to a tie on Tuesday night.Both teams are close to qualifying for the quarterfinals of the championship, but La Sele’s level of play remains disappointing. The Costa Rican side displayed a strong offense during the first 15 minutes of the match, held in Houston, which allowed them within striking distance of Canada’s goal a couple of times. However, the team, as in its recent matches, struggled to get the ball to the back of the net.Coach Óscar Ramírez — just as he did in the previous match against Honduras — sent to the field a mostly defensive lineup made up of five defenders, four midfielders and only one forward. That conservative strategy became evident when the closest attempts to score came from sudden incursions from defender Francisco Calvo.Striker Marco Ureña constantly tried to penetrate the Canadian defensive line during the first twenty minutes. However, he seemed to struggle without a teammate on the offensive line, sending shots over the goal or watching them deflected by Canadian goalie Milan Borjan.Bad news for La Sele came at 24’ when midfielder Joel Campbell was injured as a result of a tackle from behind. David Ramírez replaced him, but had little impact on the offensive line.Just two minutes later, Canada’s teen sensation Alphonso Davies scored the opener. The 16-year-old netted a pass from the right that crossed the entire box in front of La Sele’s entire defensive line.Game changeThe goal, as well as Canada’s defensive game, prompted coach Ramírez to modify his system to a four-man defensive line. He sent Kenner Gutiérrez to the midfield, on a mission to recover the ball.This adjustment allowed La Sele to regain control of the game and improve its attack.Calvo kept supporting the offensive line, and his efforts paid off at 42’ when he scored the equalizer with a potent header from a corner shot.Midfielder David Guzmán almost put the team ahead just seconds before halftime, but Borjan deflected his shot. Guzmán was later replaced by Yeltsin Tejeda, also due to an injury.La Sele entered the second half looking to double the advantage, but constant efforts to penetrate the Canadians’ strong defense were ineffective.
