Raiders’ Jordy Nelson emerges as go-to receiver at age 33

first_imgALAMEDA — Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson arrived with a midwest mentality borne of his roots on a Kansas farm.Work and prepare. Stack practices as if they’re bales of hay. Don’t allow outside influences to impede your progress. Train the next generation to carry on in your absence.But even the most dedicated farmers wear down, and when Nelson was battling a bum knee and caught all of five passes from Weeks 6 through 12, it was fair to wonder whether he had reached the end of the line …last_img

10 months agoMan Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s grave

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s graveby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says Paul Pogba was “dancing on the grave” of Jose Mourinho yesterday.Pogba posted to his social media channels a photo of himself smirking shortly after the announcement of Mourinho’s departure from Old Trafford.Adidas claimed the promotional post was booked in advance, but Neville isn’t buying their excuse.”Manchester United are a better team with Paul Pogba in it,” Neville told Sky Sports.”That’s the first thing to say – he has huge talent, I actually have belief in him as a player. I actually liked him when he was at the club as a player as a kid, it’s not a personal thing.”Paul Pogba, there is no doubt, has fallen out with the manager. He doesn’t believe in him, he doesn’t like him, he doesn’t think he’s a good coach probably, and vice-versa.”Jose Mourinho doesn’t think Paul Pogba is as good a player as he thinks he is. There’s been a complete breakdown in the last six months between the pair of them, probably [over the last] year.”I do believe that dancing on the grave of the manager who has just been sacked is out of order.”Jose Mourinho lost his job and Paul Pogba and his people put that Instagram post out – don’t fall for this coincidence scheduled tweet nonsense, it’s garbage, absolute garbage.” last_img read more

Next week I might be asked about two other names.”Lampard gave the USA international a chance against Grimsby in the Carabao Cup — and the implication is that he did not take it.Boss Lamps said: “I spoke to him two days before the Grimsby game and was very clear about the standards.“And we have to give him the fact he has moved country, moved leagues and is as young as all the young players we keep talking about. He has just turned 21.“What he needs to do is work daily and work to show within the group that he deserves to play.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

For Ghana ewaste recyclers a safer option amid toxic fumes

first_imgACCRA, Ghana — On any given day, plumes of noxious smoke rise above the Agbogbloshie dump site in Ghana’s capital, Accra.The billowing black smoke comes from the many informal e-waste recyclers who take unwanted electronics, strip them of their cables and burn away the protective covers to reach the valuable copper beneath.It’s a dangerous way to make a living, but an easily available one for the many unskilled workers arriving in search of money to get by. Ghana imports about 150,000 tons of secondhand electronics a year, according to a 2011 study co-ordinated under the Basel Convention, a global treaty on hazardous waste.Like many of the informal e-waste recyclers picking through the trash that comes largely from Europe and North America, Amin Idris comes from northern Ghana. After too many lungfuls of the acrid air, he decided to change his approach.“When I used to burn these cables, I felt ill,” he said. “That’s why I stopped burning and started bringing cables in here.”He stood at a wire-stripping machine at Green Advocacy Ghana, a non-governmental organization that operates inside the Agbogbloshie dump. For a fee ranging from 2 to 10 U.S. cents per pound of metal, electrical cables are fed through blades that slit open the plastic, making it easy to reach the copper or other metal wires inside.“When I strip cables here, it looks much better than burnt copper, and we’ll get higher prices for this stripped copper” Idris said.Bennett Nana Akuffo has run Green Advocacy Ghana for more than three years.“Every month, every year, we keep on getting more and more people. It’s a slow process and the people we are dealing with, for want of a better word, they are sometimes difficult to accept change,” Nana Akuffo said. “So it’s been a slow and gradual process.”The Environmental Protection Agency is Ghana’s main environmental regulator. “The law prohibits open burning of waste, in any form or shape. This includes electronic waste,” Principal Program Officer Larry Kotoe said.“Having said that, we are not saying the e-waste recyclers shouldn’t burn but rather that this predominantly informal sector should be transformed. The law is seeking to rebuild their capacity, retool them, so that they can safely dismantle e-waste.”While only Green Advocacy Ghana is currently active on the ground in the Agbogbloshie dump, the German government in partnership with Ghana’s government is building a health clinic and e-waste recycling training centre due to open there in early 2019.For professor Julius Fobil with the University of Ghana, more community participation from the start would make a project like Green Advocacy Ghana more effective. Environmental literacy among the informal workers “is currently very low,” he said.Fobil is concluding a long-term study of the health effects on e-waste recyclers at Agbogbloshie. He carried out blood and urine tests on a group of e-waste workers between 2016 and 2018.They “tend to have difficulties breathing,” he said. “Ailments range from minor coughs to complicated health problems like COPD. That’s chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. We are also seeing that some of them are susceptible to long-term exposure like the increase of cancers — cancer due to exposure to some of these complex chemicals.”That’s a cost the dump’s informal recyclers, who make up to an estimated $285 a month, cannot afford to pay.___Follow Africa news at https://twitter.com/AP_AfricaNeil Shaw, The Associated Presslast_img read more
