The Newcastle United first team signed on Saturday.

An excellent win at St James’ Park against Chelsea, the perfect way to wrap up what has been an astonishing run of form and results.

Since the international break in September 2022, the Newcastle United first team have played nine matches, winning eight and drawing, scoring twenty-one goals and conceding just four.

In the process, collecting 22 points from a possible 24 and progressing to the fourth round of the League Cup.

Now of course we have the Qatar World Cup split the season.

Kieran Trippier, Bruno G, Fabian Schar, Nick Pope and Callum Wilson at the tournament, while the rest of the Newcastle United first-team squad follow a slightly different route… preview and key dates below.

Newcastle United’s first team for the next two weeks…

Reported by Athleticism: “Non-Newcastle internationals will have a fortnight of formal training. During the first week, they will benefit from holidays, then during the second, they will receive personalized training programs to follow at their own pace, but they will not be required to follow Benton’s. For the remainder of the World Cup break, however, Eddie Howe will oversee what he describes as a “mini pre-season” schedule to ensure his players stay in top form.

Newcastle United will play their FA Cup third round tie

These first weeks of vacation, and then the training camp in warm weather, will allow major works to be carried out on the current training ground.

A brand new state-of-the-art training ground at another location is in the planning stages and will take a few years to complete, so in the meantime, at this time, we are in the midst of a process whereby the current facilities are being brought into up to an acceptable level. Due to almost a decade and a half of Mike Ashley neglects which had made the facilities unnecessary for a Premier League club.

So a lot of work has already been done to update the current training ground, but these weeks without the Newcastle United first team will allow that work to be accelerated significantly.

Athletic report that a third friendly is also scheduled during this World Cup break, but the opponents and date/time/venue have yet to be made public.

Martin Odegaard feels the work he is doing on the training ground is paying off after his brace saw us beat Wolves 2-0 at Molineux.

Our captain found himself in the perfect spot to fire twice in the second half to secure all three points, putting us five clear of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

But the Norway international believes the work he has done with our coaching staff at London Colney has made all the difference to his game, as he has taken his tally to six this campaign as the season now comes to an end for the World Cup.

Speaking after the match, he said: “I think I’m better at getting into those areas now – I’m attacking the box more. They might not be the best goals but I’m in the right places and it helps a lot. I’m always happy to help the team with goals.

“It’s a good way to approach the break. We said before the game that we wanted to finish strong and we wanted to bring that good feeling into the break and we did. We have to come back even stronger and better but for the moment it’s looking good.

Despite plenty of opportunities in the opening 45 minutes, we couldn’t find the breakthrough until Martin popped up with his first of the night at 55 minutes. He felt that with Wolves moving to a five-man defence, biding our time was always going to be key.

“We talked about it before the game, and we talked about it at half-time – it’s difficult to play against these teams with five in defense and we had to be patient,” he added. “I think we did it and in the end we scored goals.

“It was tough, I think we had to dig deep today. The first half was a bit slow, we struggled with the ball to really create chances. They defended well and we knows that they are always dangerous on the counter, so it was a difficult match.

“Then we changed a few things. We accelerated the game a bit in the second half and we know we have quality so we will always create something, but we did well to get the win.

Judd Semingson, Community Clinic CEO

Judd Semingson took over as CEO of the community clinic on New Year’s Day 2020. The independent primary healthcare system operated 13 facilities and was suddenly scrambling to help patients amid the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. 19.

In addition to patients covering Benton and Washington counties, Semingson had 275 employees in the eye of the storm.

“Admittedly, when I went through the interview process in 2019, I didn’t include a global pandemic in my 100-day plan,” he said. “However, we don’t often have the opportunity to define our battles in advance.”

Those early months set the tone for Semingson’s leadership approach and united his team. They still carry those lessons.

“I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by a great team. Our defining question was, and still is, how can we adapt to better help those we serve? We continue to have challenges ahead of us, but we have already gone through a period refining the fire and will adjust as needed,” he said.

Semingson, whose healthcare career spans nearly 25 years, is a U of A Eleanor Mann School of Nursing former student. He also holds a master’s degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati and a master’s degree in business administration with a major in health care administration from Western Governor’s University.

He started out in intensive care at Washington County hospitals, but spent most of his career at Advanced Orthopedic Specialists in Fayetteville. He started out as a nurse in the specialty clinic, but eventually moved into the administrative side as the practice grew. Semingson loved the healthcare industry and decided to go back to school a third time to earn an MBA.

He was introduced to the community clinic while accumulating clinical hours as an advanced practice nursing student. He never forgot his patients or the clinic’s mission, which resonated with him. He stayed connected and applied when the clinic’s associate medical director position became available. He held this position for a year when the CEO of the community clinic announced that she was retiring. After a national search, Semingson was selected.

When the community clinic was established in 1989, volunteer doctors saw patients once a month. This year, the Community Clinic is adding an 18th clinic in Centerton, has over 325 staff and has served approximately 42,000 patients thus far. The clinics provide comprehensive primary, dental, pediatric, behavioral and other health care. They even offer physiotherapy services. The organization’s goal is to make health care accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Some patients have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, while others pay on a sliding scale. Semingson focuses on improving access to primary care, which is essential to overall health. It means reducing barriers. Many of the clinics are based at area schools for convenience. Employees also connect patients with other resources, such as food or transportation.

“Our patients come from all walks of life and walks of life. I love hearing their stories. Some are from around the corner and some are from all over the world,” Semingson said.

He said helping people and creating healthy communities are the most rewarding aspects of a leading community clinic. “Health is a very personal journey, and far too often people have a narrow and fragmented view of what healthcare means,” he said. “We have amazing team members who have a broad view of accessibility, value and service. I constantly hear about the services or relationships our teams have established to help a patient or family in the need. We are the only primary care organization with comprehensive dental operations as part of our system. This broad view of healthcare allows us not only to treat acute or chronic conditions, but also to connect and educating our patients/families on healthy behaviors This work goes towards the prevention of disease or complications of disease.

Semingson wants to continue to expand the clinic’s reach and services.

“Our first goal is to help our team members grow personally and professionally,” he said. “We review and revise operations across our organization to better serve our team. In return, we seek to expand the services provided across our organization. Northwest Arkansas is a region dynamic, diverse and growing, the community clinic has both the responsibility and the opportunity to shape the health and well-being of our communities.”

Several team members are former nurses from the University of Alberta, and the clinics often serve as training grounds for students. Public health majors also work with the team.

Even though he is the CEO, Semingson maintains his nursing skills. He does not want to give up working with patients.

“I initially paused direct patient care to focus my full attention on our organization’s COVID response. However, I will resume in the near future,” he said. “Being a clinician is an essential part of who I am. Being involved in direct care operations also helps me see the challenges or opportunities that our teams face.”

BLUES fans can be among the first to get an exclusive glimpse of Southend United’s future training ground as work continues.

Club bosses say the 20-acre development to the north of the new stadium site is making “excellent progress” towards completion.

The Fossetts Farm project also plans to see 224 properties built off Eastern Avenue, Southend, after plans for a hotel were scrapped.

The first phase of the program is already underway, with the new training grounds installed and ready for use by winter.

A SHRIMPERS spokesperson said: “The four new Championship-quality training grounds at Fossetts are continuing at pace and on schedule.

“You can be one of the first to get an exclusive look at the club’s future training ground.

“The new facilities will, over time, prove a major ingredient for the future and success of the club and are the first step in the club’s relocation plans.”

The visits will take place initially on Saturday November 12, then the following week on November 19 at 11:30 a.m.

Guests will enjoy a one-hour tour, with approximately 20 seats available for each tour.

The club said further dates would be added if there was demand.

Changes announced in a revised planning application submitted to Southend Council in September also outline proposals to reduce the capacity of the planned new stadium to 16,226.

It is hoped that the new training grounds will be ready for use by winter.

Work will then begin on the east, west and south stands of the stadium, with construction due to finish in 2024.

The 224 new homes are expected to be built by 2028, according to plans.

The Southend United spokesperson added: “All guests who register will be emailed further details of meeting point etc.

“Any questions should be sent to commercial@southend-united.co.uk.”

‘I think we have a lot of work to do’ – Ian Evatt outlines areas where Bolton Wanderers need to improve https://shox-box.com/i-think-we-have-a-lot-of-work-to-do-ian-evatt-outlines-areas-where-bolton-wanderers-need-to-improve/ Wed, 02 Nov 2022 09:59:18 +0000 https://shox-box.com/i-think-we-have-a-lot-of-work-to-do-ian-evatt-outlines-areas-where-bolton-wanderers-need-to-improve/ Wanderers of Bolton had a fairly steady start to the season League 1 campaign, as the Trotters currently sit last in the play-off spots.

Wanderers of Bolton had a fairly steady start to the season League 1 campaign, as the Trotters currently sit last in the play-off spots.

Bolton headed into the game against Oxford United last weekend unbeaten in four in all competitions, but that run came to a halt as the U’s took the three points at the University of Bolton Stadium.

October was a busy month for the Trotters as they played a total of eight games in all competitions; consequently, time on the training ground was limited for Ian Evatt as he struggled with fixture congestion.

In their 16 matches in Ligue 1 this season, the Trotters have scored 19 goals, a significantly lower tally than the rest of the league’s top six. While Evatt’s men have only scored two or more league goals in just six times.

It will be alarming for Evatt because his team has a percentage of 64% shoot from inside the 18-yard penalty area, compared to 31% outside the box.

This did not go unnoticed, with Evatt saying after the club’s 3-1 loss to Oxford at the weekend that his side were often “be mistakenin the final third of the pitch.

Wanderers will now look to this weekend’s game against Barnsley in the FA Cup first round before traveling to a week-long tie against Cambridge United on Saturday. Evatt hopes that in these upcoming games he will see improvement from his attacking players.

Evatt said, via Bolton News“I think we have a lot of work to do over the next two weeks. I think we really have the opportunity now to impose certain rules on the players.

The training loads have been tough this month because of the number of games, so we haven’t had time on the grass, and I think we’re really affected when we don’t.

I think our details are affected, and we just have to remind players when we’re in certain positions, what’s required and what’s expected, especially in the final third, it’s a numbers game.

Evatt believes one area his side need to improve on is getting more players into the box when the ball is wide.

Quiz: In which foreign club are these 18 ex-Bolton Wanderers players currently playing?

Chung-yong Lee


He added“I don’t think we sometimes play the numbers game well enough. We have players who want to be short-footed and want to build around the box and then when we get to good crossing positions we don’t have enough numbers or bodies in the box.

We really need to drill down into some specifics of what is required, where we are around this box, what type of cross is needed, and then the positions, making sure we’ve covered all areas of the box – near, in the middle , away , and someone for the reduction.

At the moment we are not in the positions that we should be in, and we can give them all the video and data that we want, but sometimes you have to physically show them on the training ground, have the time to do it and move people around to work on things.

October has been playing and recovering and the whole group especially together has been tough.

The verdict

Evatt will know that if his team wants to stay in the play-off table, they need to start scoring more goals. As mentioned, their tally is considerably lower than their play-off rivals.

Bolton have several options in mind, with the likes of Dion Charles, Oladapo Afolayan, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Elias Kachunga. However, their top scorer this season is Charles, with just three goals, and after that there are a handful of players on two goals.

So you can see that even though the goals are split within the team, Bolton somewhat lacks that killer instinct in front of goal, and you could tell they don’t have that man who is going to score 20 goals for them. per season.

This will be a concern for Evatt as he knows putting the ball in the back of the net is what wins football games. The Trotters boss therefore hopes that more time on the training ground will actually help the team going forward.

Henry Cejudo believes that a fight between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski would be a bad match that will not end favorably for the featherweight champion.

According to ‘Triple C’, Volkanovski should fight him instead of the new lightweight champion. Talking about an episode of The Triple C & Schmo ShowCejudo explained why he thinks he should be next to challenge the reigning featherweight king:

“I personally think I should have shortened the line because Alexander Volkanovski went through everyone and I think it would be more soothing for me and Alexander Volkanovski to fight. For him to take a monster like Islam where he will be crushed to death…”

Watch Henry Cejudo discuss Islam Makhachev vs. Alexander Volkanovski below:

Islam Makhachev is known for his elite fighting, which should give him an edge over Alexander Volkanovski when the two collide. The odds reflect the same as Makhachev opened as a major betting favorite.

The Russian opened as a -400 favorite, while Volkanovski opened as a +300 underdog, according to betonline_ag.

Henry Cejudo insists that four months is not enough for Alexander Volkanovski to prepare for Islam Makhachev

Alexander Volkanovski seems determined to move up to lightweight to become the next two-time UFC champion. Islam Makhachev and Volkanovski have both expressed interest in traveling to the featherweight champion’s home country of Australia for a potential super fight at UFC 284 on February 12 next year.

However, Cejudo thinks it would be a bad idea for “The Great”. ‘Triple C’ believe Makhachev will be a tough challenge for Volkanovski and recently advised the Aussie to have a proper training camp to deal with Dagestan’s dominating struggle.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Cejudo had this to say about the superfight rumor and Volkanovski’s chances:

“I don’t understand why they are doing Australia in February. So soon, but what are you going to need? Alexander, I know you have skills, but to face a guy like that, you are going to need a lot more four months. You’re going to need the right sparring partners and the right coaches.

TEMPO.CO, JakartaEdgeConneX, a pioneer of hyperlocal to global hyperscale data center solutions, will expand its presence in Asia by acquiring GTN data centers in Indonesia. To improve the operations of its Indonesian staff at GTN, the company sends its Indonesian workers to train abroad.

Kelvin Fong, EdgeConneX’s general manager for Asia-Pacific, said the company currently has 19 employees in Indonesia. But this number will increase to 40-50.

“We send them to our offices in the United States and Amsterdam for training. Upon their return, they can help improve the skills of other Indonesian staff; operations, technicians and engineers,” he said. he said in Jakarta, Wednesday, October 26.

The training process is currently underway. The company sends them to training schools in Europe for two weeks.

“They returned to Jakarta today, October 26, and the next batch will be sent for training,” he said.

Kelvin expressed his pride in his company-owned campus in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Kelvin said the campus is probably the best training ground because there are a lot of technical and operational complexities.

According to his calculations, it is estimated that an engineer there can take up to 10 engineer workloads. “That’s why we are improving them in terms of skills and salaries. We will pay them more, but for that we have to improve their abilities,” he said.

This will give the company the opportunity to recruit experienced operators while taking interns from industry, either universities or technical institutions.

“So we are definitely open in terms of partnership. We are not only doing this in Indonesia but also in other countries. I strongly believe in educating the next generation. We train them because by training them , they also help us.”

CLIMBING AND SLIDING: Aggie Macy 24 roller skates on the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center course in Salt Lake City, Utah. Macy ’24 spent more than a week training with the United States Ski Team as part of his selection for the elite national group.

Skier Aggie Macy’s fall vacation in 24 — and the following eight days — was filled with just about everything except relaxation. She was one of thirteen cross-country skiers from around the country who were selected for the National Elite Group (NEG) run by the United States Ski Team and spent more than a week training in Salt Lake. City, Utah.

It was Macy’s second time qualifying and participating in training camp, which consisted of ski intervals, technical sessions and races at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, the course built for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Based on her performance last season with the Bowdoin Nordic Ski Team, Macy qualified to attend the New England regional camp over the summer. His regional time trials earned him an invitation to the official camp this fall.

“Last year when I was invited, I got an email and freaked out because it was so crazy,” she said. “This year I had more of an idea that I would probably make it based on my results from summer training camp, but…it was still so much fun to go out there and do that. .”

The 13 NEG skiers were joined by former and current US Olympic skiers and pro skiers from clubs across the country. Macy’s former teammate and former Bowdoin student Renae Anderson ’21, who skis professionally in Minneapolis, was also in attendance.

“The goal for the week was to see what it was like to ski professionally. So you only train a few times a day, eat and try to recover to start again,” Macy said.

Since there was no snow on the ground, skiers practiced roller skiing, the off-snow equivalent of cross-country skiing. Roller skis are rolling wooden boards that allow a skier to practice a skating motion on solid ground. Although it looks a lot like traditional skiing, it can be easier to pick up speed on roller skis. Macy said she went 30 mph downhill on roller skis.

Her favorite hike during boot camp was from Salt Lake City to Park City, a path that climbed over 4,300 feet in elevation and featured some of the best fall foliage she had ever seen.

On Saturday, Macy took part in a ten-kilometer skate race. The skiers were randomly seeded and started the race 15 seconds apart. Macy called back Olympic gold medalist Jessie Diggins starting about a minute behind her.

“She’s arguably one of the best skiers in the world… I was just like, ‘Okay, how long can I last before she passes me?’ Macy said. “She passed me on the second lap, but I was just able to ski behind her the whole time, which was really fun.”

The elevation change was a big adjustment for Macy, so his focus for most races was to have fun and focus on his technique. She was surprised when she placed eighth among the competing members of the US Ski Team.

“It was a pretty elite group of people, which is really fun. It was a lot of people that I looked up to for a long time,” Macy said.

Macy said training with pro skiers was a welcome opportunity to consider her own future in the sport.

“I went there this year and I was like, ‘Oh, [professional skiing] is really fun,” Macy said. “I’m just going to keep skiing as long as it’s fun. The second it’s not fun, I’ll take a step back. For me, training is a way to go out, have fun, travel and connect with people. I don’t see skiing as an exercise. It’s more of a way of life for me. »

Now back in Brunswick and looking to the future, Macy is thrilled with the official start of the Bowdoin Nordic Ski Team season this winter and all the team traditions that come with it.

“During the Thanksgiving holiday, we have camp together, so we get together as a group and all cook Thanksgiving dinner together,” Macy said. “It’s a good time. The team is an awkward team. It’s a small family. »

Macy’s will also compete in the NEG Senior National Championship, to be held in Michigan in January 2023.

Alexandro Bernabei has picked up two assists in his last two games against Celtic.

Scottish teams don’t often raid the Primera División, or any other South American league, for rising stars. Bernabei was an enticing proposition for the Celtic back-up, a stocky, quick right-back with a reputation for attacking at will. Some wanted him to replace the less connected Greg Taylor, forgetting that he’s just about the toughest citizen you could have on your team.

Unsurprisingly, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has been playing cool with Bernabei. A new city, a new language and a new culture. The Argentina Under-19 international therefore had to wait until the last day of this month for his first full green and white outing, in the Premier Sports Cup, at Ross County. He has started just two league games since but provided an assist in each of them and played very well in Saturday’s 6-1 win over Hibs.

“I’m happy for Alexandro,” Postecoglou said of the player’s progress. “Again, he’s someone we’re really excited about. I think because of what happened last year [new summer signings coming into the team right away], people were probably expecting us to launch new recruits straight from the plane. But this season, it was never planned. I wanted to make sure we fit them together properly, especially Alexandro.

“He’s 21, it’s the first time he’s left Argentina and I didn’t want to throw him in and overwhelm him immediately. We see a bright future for him and we wanted to integrate him gently. Alexandro has been really good at training, he is keen to learn and he has a real thirst for improvement. We were able to be measured but I never doubted that he could have an impact – and you will see it now. We have also had the luxury of not having to throw him away, as Greg Taylor had a stellar season and we were able to bring Alexandro in gradually.

Postecoglou must decide whether to keep Bernabei in their starting XI for Wednesday’s Premier Sports Cup quarter-final against Motherwell at Fir Park or bring back Taylor, who still holds Celtic’s first-choice left-back role. The Aussie is happy with his development since joining Glasgow and may decide to keep Taylor fresh for Saturday’s league game at Hearts.

“We still have 28 league games plus cups to go so Alexandro will play their part,” Postecoglou continued. “He got a few assists in his last two games and that was part of the attraction with Alexandro. He’s exciting going forward and in the modern game, if you can get defensive players with good offensive returns, those are great assets.

“We certainly saw that when we scouted Alexandro and we knew he could be good for us in the future. But he’s also improving the defensive side of his game. We’ve been working closely with him and he’s taking it’s all on board. We see how good Alexandro has been in training and we’re probably the least surprised at the way he played against the Hibs. But he’s just a young guy and there’s more soon.

Two gunmen opened fire on a group of Russian military recruits at a training ground in Belgorod, Russia, on Saturday, killing 11 people and injuring 15 others, CNN reported, citing Russian state news agency TASS.

Driving the news: Russian authorities have called the incident an act of terrorism and on Sunday the Russian Investigative Committee announced that it was opening a criminal investigation into the case.

  • The Russian Defense Ministry said the two gunmen were from a former Soviet republic, but gave no further details, according to the BBC.
  • “During a firearms training session with individuals who voluntarily expressed a desire to participate in the special military operation [against Ukraine]the terrorists opened fire with small arms on the personnel of the unit,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement, the BBC reported, citing the official Ria news agency.
  • “As a result of a terrorist attack on a military training ground in the Belgorod region, 11 people were killed, 15 were injured and are receiving medical assistance,” TASS reported.
  • The two gunmen were killed in retaliatory fire at the training ground, according to CNN.

The big picture: Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “partial mobilization” of around 300,000 Russian citizens for the country’s war in Ukraine.
