QPR-bound M’Vila eyes future move to United, Chelsea or Arsenal

first_imgMidfielder Yann M’Vila has been told he can make a name for himself in the Premier League by joining QPR and then secure a move to a big club.Arsenal have been linked with the 22-year-old France international but did not make an offer to Rennes, who have been interested in selling him for some time.But Loftus Road boss Harry Redknapp convinced M’Vila that joining Rangers would boost his chances of attracting attention from the Gunners and the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.Redknapp explained: “I told him that he could come here and be a good player, and if he does well, in 18 months he could get a move to United, or Arsenal or Chelsea if that is what he’s looking for.“In the meantime he can come here and we’ll put him on the stage and show what he can do.“If we can build a team then hopefully he will stay with us. If not he will put himself on the stage for bigger things.”YTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

All About Water Heaters

Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img If you want to save energy, there are lots of exciting appliances and building materials that you might want to specify for your home: triple-glazed windows, an efficient refrigerator, and compact fluorescent or LED lighting, for example.When it comes to choosing a water heater, though, clarity evaporates. Simple, affordable water heaters aren’t very efficient, and efficient equipment is complicated and costly. So how do you go about choosing a water heater?Most homeowners ignore their water heaters. About once every ten years, the average homeowner goes down to the basement or out to the garage and notices that the water heater is sitting in a pool of water.Since the family needs to replace the leaking water heater right now, the $350 special at Home Depot (or whatever model the nearest plumber is willing to install) looks good. Although a rush replacement job is understandable under the circumstances, it’s not the wisest way to choose a water heater.The overwhelming majority of water heaters sold in the U.S. are tank-type water heaters heated by natural gas, propane, or electric resistance elements. Tank-type water heaters are widely available and inexpensive. Of the three most common fuels, natural gas is by far the cheapest, except in a few areas of the country with very low electric rates.If natural gas is unavailable, an electric-resistance water heater makes more sense than a propane water heater, since electric water heaters avoid potential problems with backdrafting and flue-gas spillage.What if you want to heat your water more efficiently — or in a more environmentally friendly way? Well, there are many options, all of which require a much bigger investment in equipment.Options include:Most of these high-tech water heaters are more efficient than typical tank-style heaters. Unfortunately, all of these options have… last_img read more

Buzz Aldrin calls for a migration to Mars

first_img Another Mars rover bites the dust, but NASA’s not finished… 2 Now playing: Watch this: Buzz Aldrin wants us to go to Mars. Emma McIntyre/Getty For Buzz Aldrin, the moon is no longer enough. Aldrin, who, along with Neil Armstrong, walked on the moon during the landmark Apollo 11 mission 50 years ago, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post Wednesday, calling on Congress and President Donald Trump to get behind a serious effort to create a permanent human presence on Mars. “Human nature — and potentially the ultimate survival of our species — demands humanity’s continued outward reach into the universe,” Aldrin wrote.He’s not talking about “clever robots” or rovers, either. Aldrin said that as much as he appreciates NASA’s work on unmanned missions, it’s time Mars is explored by “by living, breathing, walking, talking, caring and daring men and women.”Plans for sending humans to Mars are on the drawing board at NASA and in the mind of entrepreneur Elon Musk. Although details are sketchy for now, NASA and the Trump administration have penciled in 2033 for when astronauts might make the first footprints on the red planet. Meanwhile, Musk sees a Mars base happening perhaps by 2028, and he has a vision for how a Mars colony could take shape.Aldrin thinks we need to establish permanent settlements on Mars, and fairly soon.”All of this is within reach for humans alive now, but it starts with a unified next step in space,” he wrote.

Moodys downgrades Yes Bank ratings amid leadership transition governance issues

first_imgREUTERS/Francis MascarenhasCredit ratings agency A Moody’s Investors Service on Tuesday downgraded Yes Bank’s foreign currency issuer rating to ‘Ba1 from Baa3’.According to the agency, the developments around leadership transition as well as the governance issues are credit negative.”Moody’s has also downgraded the bank’s foreign and local currency bank deposit ratings to ‘Ba1/NP from Baa3/Prime-3’ and foreign currency senior unsecured MTN program rating to ‘(P)Ba1 from (P)Baa3’,” the agency said in a statement.Further, Moody’s downgraded Yes Bank’s baseline credit assessment (BCA) and adjusted BCA to ‘ba2 from ba1’.”The rating action considers the resignation of various members of the bank’s Board of Directors — which, when seen in conjunction with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) directive in September 2018 to restrict the term of the bank’s MD and CEO as well as founder, Mr. Rana Kapoor, till 31 January, 2019 — has raised Moody’s concerns over corporate governance,” the statement said.”In Moody’s opinion, although the bank’s reported credit fundamentals remain stable, the developments surrounding the transition in leadership as well as the governance issues are credit negative because they complicate management’s effective implementation of the bank’s long-term strategy.”Furthermore, the ratings agency said that developments could constrain the bank’s ability to raise new capital.last_img read more

IWAI urges state to spruce up road connecting Kolaghat jetty with NH41

first_imgKolkata: Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) has urged the Bengal government to spruce up a 4 km long road leading to the highway from the Kolaghat jetty in East Midnapore, to facilitate the transport of cargo through it.”We have finalised the design of the loading structure at Kolaghat. The only problem is a 4 km road connecting the place with NH 41 that needs reconstruction. We are inclined to do this with the Bengal government, which is happy to re-construct the road. We have got permission to operate our jetty at Kolaghat. It might need some dredging. Once the road is constructed, we hope to start operation before December,” said IWAI chairman Pravir Pandey, speaking at the Inland Waterways Summit, organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in association with IWAI.
