Napoli also remain unbeaten as they warmed up for a midweek Champions League trip to Shakhtar Donetsk, winning 3-0 at Bologna with late goals from Jose Callejon (66), Dries Mertens (83), and Piotr Zielinski (88).“To go 70 minutes and lose 0-3 is heavy for the boys,” said coach Roberto Donadoni of Bologna’s first loss this season.“Naivety cost us and Napoli punished us. This has to teach us a lesson.”Juventus — who travel to Barcelona for Champions League duty on Tuesday — are top of the standings on goal difference, equal on nine points with Napoli and Inter Milan, with Lazio fourth on seven.AC Milan dropped to seventh after suffering their first defeat of the season as a Ciro Immobile hat-trick lifted Lazio 4-1 at home.Simone Inzaghi’s side ran riot over the Chinese-owned Milan with an on-fire Immobile scoring three in 10 minutes, including a penalty, in a match delayed for an hour due to torrential rain in the capital.Napoli’s forward Dries Mertens (C) celebrates with his teammates after scoring on September 10, 2017 © AFP / FILIPPO MONTEFORTERiccardo Montolivo pulled one back for the visitors off a deflected Hakan Calhanoglu free-kick, but Vincenzo Montella’s side fell to their first defeat in three games.“Not many teams will get four goals past Milan,” said Immobile, who also scored for Italy in a World Cup qualifier this week.“I think we’re on the right track.”After two easy matches against Crotone and Cagliari, Milan got a reality check against Lazio.Immobile’s first was from a penalty on 38 minutes, and four minutes later he added a second with a volley off a Senad Lulic cross.The Italian international then got his third six minutes later and quickly assisted Luis Alberto for the fourth.Earlier, Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi added to his Serie A tally with a 27th-minute penalty, giving him a fifth goal of the season.The spot-kick was awarded after the intervention of the video assistant referee (VAR), after Joao Mario was tripped inside the box with Icardi slotting in.Ivan Perisic sealed the victory after 87 minutes with a powerful volley into the top corner.“They are valuable points which allow us to consolidate our place and build self-confidence,” said Inter assistant manager Marco Domenichini.– Fiorentina five –SPAL boss Leonardo Semplici believes Inter under former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti can now challenge Juventus’ dominance.Lazio’s forward Ciro Immobile celebrates after scoring his second goal against AC Milan on September 10, 2017 at the Olympic stadium in Rome © AFP / Vincenzo PINTO“Inter will challenge for the Scudetto, but I still have to compliment my boys for their performance. I tip my hat to Luciano Spalletti, who is both a friend and a great coach,” he told Sky Sport Italia.“We caused Inter problems and had a few chances to score too, but I think if we play like this, we will ensure our Serie A safety.”Emilia-Romagna side SPAL are sitting eighth.Fiorentina bounced back from successive defeats with their first win of the season — a 5-0 rout at Verona.Argentine striker Giovanni Simeone, son of Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone, scored his first goal for the Tuscany club after two minutes.Elsewhere, Atalanta won 2-1 at home against Sassuolo while Cagliari achieved their first win in their new stadium, beating Crotone 1-0, and Udinese defeated Genoa 1-0.Torino left it late with Iago Falque scoring three minutes into time added on to beat Benevento 1-0.Saturday’s game between Sampdoria and AS Roma in Genoa was postponed because of adverse weather conditions.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Mass honors three killed in Iraq

first_imgPICO RIVERA – At a Mass at St. Hilary Catholic Church, graying war veterans and friends and relatives knelt and prayed Friday for U.S. Army Sgt. Arthur A. Mora Jr. and the two soldiers who died with him in Iraq. “They are our brothers who went through baptism by fire. It is important for us to be here today,” said Richard Briones, a Korean War veteran from Pico Rivera. Mora, 23, was killed Oct. 19 when his patrol vehicle was hit by enemy fire in Balad, Iraq. Two fellow soldiers, Army Spc. Russell Nahvi, 24, of Texas, and Army Pfc. Jose E. Rosario, 20, of St. Croix, died with him. Mora had been in Iraq since July and hoped to be home in December to celebrate the holidays with his wife and three children, including a son who was born Oct. 11. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week During Friday’s solemn Mass, attended by close to 200 people, Mora’s family led the congregation in prayer. The Rev. George Madella provided words of comfort to Mora’s mother, Sylvia Mora, and his two sisters and brother. “This is my first Mass for soldiers who were in Iraq,” Madella said. “When I saw the age of the soldiers and realized they were only in their 20s and had sacrificed so much, I thought they had sacrified their lives for a greater cause. “They are people with a lot of courage who gave their lives, and we must remember it is not important how many years we have lived. What is important is how we live our lives.” Mora was based at Fort Stewart, Ga., and was a member of the Army’s 5th Squadron, 7th Calvary Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. He was buried Oct. 29 at Fort Meigs Cemetery in Perrysburg, Ohio, where his wife and three children live. Family members said it was gratifying to have so many tributes paid to Mora, a 2000 El Rancho High School graduate, who joined the Army with his mother’s permission in his senior year. “In Perrysburg, it was so nice, so beautiful,” Sylvia Mora said Friday. “There was an honor guard, people on the sidewalks waving flags, and policemen, firemen and veterans saluting him. “Now here, with a lot of family and friends, we are honoring him again so everyone can see what kind of person he was.” Valerie Hernandez, Mora’s cousin, said she would have preferred that the young man who was always happy and hugging people had come home to his family. But the pride she felt made her loss easier, she said. “He used to like cleaning up at the American Legion on Durfee and being around veterans,” she said. “He had a passion for this and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.” Mora is the third soldier from the Whittier area to die in Afghanistan or Iraq. Pfc. Joseph Cruz, 22, of Whittier was killed Oct. 15 in Bagram, Afghanistan, from non-combat injuries. U.S. Army Medic Paul Nakamura, 21, of Santa Fe Springs was killed in June 2003 when his ambulance was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. According to the U.S Department of Defense Web site, as of Friday 2,035 U.S. soldiers had died in Iraq. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

South Africa is top for affordable financial services

first_img26 August 2015South Africa ranks second for its excellent access to and usage of affordable financial services, according to a report released yesterday.The 2015 Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) Report and Scorecard, which evaluated 21 countries, examined broad dimensions relevant to financial inclusion such as country commitment, mobile capacity, regulatory environment and adoption of traditional and digital financial services.As of 2014, about 75% of South African adults had bank accounts and 5% used non-bank financial products. ATM and debit cards were more common, with 34% of the banked population owning a South African Social Security MasterCard.“Unlike in many other countries in our study, women in South Africa are generally not disproportionately excluded from formal financial services,” the report said. “The 2014 Global Findex found that about 69% of men and 69% of women had accounts with a formal financial institution or mobile money provider.”South Africa earned 80% and was ranked number 12 for country commitment, number one for mobile capacity, number 17 for regulatory environment and number three for adoption. It also received the highest score for formal account penetration, including among rural, low-income and female groups.Strong mobile capacitySouth Africa’s mobile capacity was strong, the report showed, with the percentage of unique subscribers comprising about 70% of the population and about 96% 3G mobile network coverage by population.“South Africa also has a number of mobile money deployments offering P2P domestic transfers, bill payment, and international remittances,” it said. “This has allowed it to reach more people and engage them in financial services.”Initiatives to digitise government transfers, along with the country’s quite extensive banking infrastructure, supported financial inclusion. “Efforts to diversify the digital financial services market and encourage digital transactions could propel further advancements in financial inclusion.”According to estimates from a recent Imperial College and Citi report, “a 10% increase in the digital money readiness and commensurate increase in adoption for the countries included in the index, can help up to an estimated 220 million individuals enter the formal financial sector. This translates to an additional $1- trillion (R13.15-trillion) moving from the informal economy to the formal economy”.Financial inclusionThe report said financial inclusion had become a crucial aspect of economic development.“Developing economies need consumers who can pay bills or send remittances in an affordable and convenient manner. Digital services are an increasingly important component of the nexus between development and financial inclusion.“Having greater access to financial services promotes entrepreneurship, lifts people out of poverty, and gives them greater hope for a brighter economic future. This is especially the case in regard to women and marginalised groups.”Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Ohio’s Crop Progress — May 30, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Frequent rains bringing varied totals across the state kept many operators from plating and, in some cases, replanting corn and soybeans, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 1.8 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending May 28th . Rains interrupted planting or prevented the drying down needed for some operators to enter fields. Delays and drown-outs left the season in question for some growers. Corn in the ground was mostly in fair to good condition, reflecting the cold, wet weather’s effect on emergence. Winter wheat is in mostly good condition, but all crops would benefit from drier and warmer weather. Those conditions would also help hay producers, who also experienced a delay in cuttings. Pastures seemed to benefit from the wet conditions the most.82% of corn is planted while 62% of corn is emerged. Soybeans are at 54% planted and 35% emerged. 1st cutting of alfalfa is 43% finished.Click here to read the full report.last_img read more
