Los soldados tienen base en los condados de Lebanon y Cambria.Con el fin de proteger la salud de los soldados, el Gobernador Wolf, el Mayor General Anthony Carrelli, el Ayudante General de Pennsylvania y el Jefe del Departamento de Asuntos Militares y de Veteranos de Pennsylvania, y otros líderes de alto rango brindaron mensajes de video en apoyo a las tropas.“Cuando la mayor parte de este estado, del país y del mundo cerraron temporalmente debido al virus, ustedes continuaron prestando servicio”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Ponen a sus familias y carreras en espera. Y ahora, les estamos pidiendo que hagan eso nuevamente. Mi corazón sabe que completarán esta misión con el mismo nivel de dedicación y compromiso que han demostrado en despliegues anteriores, en operaciones domésticas y en sus intensos entrenamientos”.“Estos últimos meses han sido tan difíciles para estos soldados y sus familias. Si bien la mayor parte del mundo estuvo en cuarentena durante lo peor de esta pandemia, el ECAB entrenaba todos los días”, dijo Carrelli. “Todos ustedes pusieron a la nación primero y apreciamos su sacrificio y arduo trabajo para lograr que la ECAB llegue a este punto. Estamos orgullosos de su servicio y esperamos su regreso seguro luego de otro despliegue exitoso”.Wolf y Carrelli también se dirigieron a las familias de los soldados, mencionando que también realizan un sacrificio increíble cuando sus seres queridos se movilizan, y que Pennsylvania está aquí para ayudar a las familias en estos tiempos difíciles.La ECAB desplegará a 500 soldados de otros estados para realizar operaciones aéreas del Ejército, incluidos servicios de transporte y medivac (evacuación médica) en apoyo de CENTCOM. La unidad se dirigirá a Texas en julio antes de un período de servicio de aproximadamente nueve meses en el extranjero.“Han soportado tanto para prepararse para este despliegue, pero son algunos de los soldados profesionales más selectos, mejor entrenados y resilientes que haya conocido en mis 37 años como soldado y oficial del ejército”, dijo el Coronel Howard Lloyd, Comandante de ECAB.Para ver los mensajes de video y recibir más información sobre este despliegue, vaya a https://www.dvidshub.net/unit/28CAB.View this information in English.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said on Monday he would reassess his goalkeeping options at the end of the season after dropping the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, in recent weeks. Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga has been dropped in recent weeks despite a world record price tag for a goalkeeper The Spanish international has fallen behind 38-year-old Willy Caballero after a series of poor performances in his second season after a £72 million ($92 million) move from Athletic Bilbao. “Of course in the summer then we look at the group as a whole and think how can we improve but there are no decisions or thoughts beyond the game tomorrow night as far as I’m concerned,” Lampard said ahead of Tuesday’s FA Cup tie against Liverpool. Kepa could return to face the runaway Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge and Lampard praised his response to being dropped for the past five games. “He’s been professional as expected and has trained well, kept his head down, supported the team, and the group,” added Lampard. “Every player is in control of their destiny in terms of how they train and how they play.Advertisement Loading… “This is Chelsea and we’re trying to close the gap to the top, so there can be no one that can be relaxed or loose, we have to push every day.” Promoted Content5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksPretty Awesome Shows That Just Got CanceledThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

YANA PASKOVA/Herald photoIt seemed like a fitting end.Hope was still lingering for Wisconsin, but with the Badgers down just 2-1 in the third period Saturday night, Phil Kessel — the highly-touted recruit and Madison native who chose Minnesota over Wisconsin — threw home the dagger.Kessel, who had been booed all weekend, picked his spot and blasted the puck through UW goaltender Shane Connelly’s legs. Skating around in celebration, he cupped his gloved hand to his ear as if to ask the sold-out Kohl Center: “What do you have to say to me now?”The relative silence was deafening.In a flash, UW was swept by its arch-nemesis — the second home sweep dealt to the Badgers in as many weekends — and its once eight-point lead atop the WCHA evaporated into a three-way tie for first in a matter of four games.To use Eaves’ own analogy of his team climbing a mountain throughout the season in hopes of reaching the summit — the national championship — this is a storm cloud that has hampered way too many days of climbing.”It’s just frustrating to have an eight-point cushion and now it’s a race for the WCHA first place,” UW assistant captain Tom Gilbert said. “It’s frustrating that you do a lot of good things and you don’t do a lot of good things. Unfortunately for us, we’re on a little slide right now.”It is clear that the team is still feeling the effects of the loss of star netminder Brian Elliott, who went down nearly two weeks ago with a leg injury. “Look what we’ve done in the first half, and even going into the second half, we were a really good team,” junior Robbie Earl said. “Losing Brian Elliott, that’s a big impact. He was a part of that leadership role and that’s tough to deal with.”Before he was injured, the Badgers had lost just once in a matter of 19 games. They had been the top-ranked team for seven straight weeks.”There was confidence, there was trust that Brian created with his teammates,” Eaves said. “We’re trying to get that created with Shane [Connelly].” Prior to the loss of Elliott, Wisconsin had allowed three or more goals in just two regular-season games all year. The freshman Connelly and UW have given up three or more tallies in their last three games.It’s safe to say the team just hasn’t been the same since that point.However, feel free to insert a Lee Corso-like “Not so fast, my friend” here.”You have to take a look at the situation,” Eaves said. “Right now, for us, the main thing is just to maintain and kind of regroup here in the middle of the storm and make sure we’re not losing confidence in ourselves.”Yes, the eight-point cushion that the Badgers had just two weeks ago is gone, but Wisconsin is still tied for first place in the best league in college hockey.Furthermore, the Badgers’ schedule down the stretch still bodes well for the team.Connelly will try to grab his first win of his career next weekend when UW takes on a floundering Minnesota-Duluth team, which has been on a Badger-like slide as of late but did not have the luxury of an eight-point lead.Instead, the Bulldogs have gone from potential league contenders to less-than pretenders. They have lost six straight games, none of them to teams higher than sixth place in the WCHA.Following the series with Duluth, the Badgers will have a week off from league play as they take on Ohio State at Lambeau Field, giving Elliott one more week to nurse his injury.Eaves said last week that he expects Elliott to be back when the Badgers travel to Michigan Tech, the first of three straight weekends against teams in the bottom half of the league standings to close out the season.”We’ve dug ourselves a little bit of a hole, but you look at the bright side, it’s tied [at the top of the league],” Earl said. “It’s still in our hands, and it’s up to us what we want to do with it.”Did UW have an eight-point lead which looked insurmountable at the time? Yes, but if you would have told the Badgers at the beginning of the year that they would be tied for the WCHA lead at this point in their schedule, they probably would have taken that.Then again, anything is possible in the WCHA, and Eaves and Wisconsin better hope that the sun breaks through this storm cloud immediately.
Published on November 7, 2010 at 12:00 pm Standing in the hallway adjacent to the Syracuse locker room Saturday, Justin Pugh summed up his team’s emotion in three short sentences. This game was about missed opportunities. Missed opportunities that came from a series of penalties and miscues. And as a result, SU had missed an opportunity to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2004. ‘It’s definitely frustrating,’ the redshirt freshman left tackle Pugh said. ‘We know that dropped balls and penalties happen. We just have to stay positive.’ Returning home after two marquee Big East road wins, Syracuse revisited the inconsistency that plagued the team in a Homecoming blowout loss to Pittsburgh three weeks ago. The Orange racked up eight penalties and, perhaps more importantly, allowed Louisville to generate points off them. That ultimately proved to be the deciding factor Saturday as Syracuse fell to the Cardinals, 28-20. In a game that was decided by one possession, a series of miscues and penalties kept SU from advancing to seven wins and becoming bowl eligible. Though the Cardinals committed more penalties and had several missed opportunities of their own, SU’s came at the most inopportune times.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘We made some mistakes, and they capitalized on them,’ senior linebacker Derrell Smith said. Starting with the opening kickoff, Syracuse put itself into a hole that was difficult to crawl out of. SU return specialist Dorian Graham took the kick and returned it to the SU 41-yard line. But a clipping penalty brought the return all the way back to the 10-yard line. So instead of starting the game near midfield, quarterback Ryan Nassib and the offense stared down 90 yards of turf before the end zone. The drive ultimately led to a Rob Long punt. ‘We made mistakes out there, right off the bat we had a turnover, which they turned into seven points,’ Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone said. ‘Then we had a couple penalties and some coverage issues, which allowed them to score.’ Later, with 7:30 remaining in the first quarter, a Nassib fumble set the Cardinals up nicely on SU’s 41-yard line. Three plays later, UL was celebrating in the end zone. ‘It is difficult to deal with,’ senior linebacker Doug Hogue said. ‘We have to execute correctly during the game to capitalize.’ And although the Orange eventually went into halftime with a 17-14 lead, the second half proved to be even more problematic. When Louisville took a 21-17 lead with 10:34 remaining in the third quarter, it never looked back. A series of miscues played a significant role in keeping the Orange from regaining the lead. As Syracuse marched down the field immediately following UL’s touchdowns in the third, two open shots to the end zone were dropped by sophomore receiver Alec Lemon, and SU settled for a 42-yard Ross Krautman field goal. ‘Drops happen in a game,’ Lemon said. ‘All you have to do is bounce back. Plays can happen like that.’ With the Orange trailing by eight early in the fourth quarter, a 23-yard run by running back Delone Carter was negated due to an illegal formation penalty. What would have given Syracuse a first down near midfield instead put the offense in a third-and-10 situation. A play later, SU punted for the first of three times in the fourth quarter and failed to seriously threaten the Louisville defense down the stretch. The miscues continued throughout the game for the Orange, preventing a fourth-quarter comeback despite multiple stops by the SU defense. With three more games remaining to capture that seventh win required for the Orange to become bowl eligible, Smith said it’s not time to panic. Instead, Smith said, the Orange needs to take the loss for what it is and simply move on. Move on from a missed opportunity. ‘It is very disappointing, but the season isn’t over, and we have a couple more games to go out and reach our goal. We are going to go back to the drawing board and watch the film and fix our previous mistakes.’ email@example.com Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Submit GVC absorbs retail shocks as business recalibrates for critical H2 trading August 13, 2020 Martin Lycka – Regulatory high temperatures cancel industry’s ‘silly season’ August 11, 2020 Betdaq has fulfilled a “key strategic aim” by launching a fixed-odds sportsbook to complement its 2% exchange and online casino. The new sportsbook will be backed by a multi-channel marketing campaign that includes PR and social media activities with ex-England footballer Glen Johnson and above the line advertising starring renowned actor Ralph Ineson.The entirely new sportsbook offers a shared Betdaq wallet, best odds guaranteed, full and partial cash out, live streaming and in-play betting with visualisations.It was developed in conjunction with Betdaq’s exchange platform provider gbet, while utilising pricing input and expertise from parent company GVC Holdings. The proprietary Streaming API push technology from gbet ensures instant and up-to-date prices are available to Betdaq’s customers. The development follows strong growth over the past 18 months since Betdaq first switched to a permanently low 2% commission on all exchange markets and bets.Betdaq managing director Shane McLaughlin said: “Launching the Betdaq sportsbook is the realisation of a key strategic aim. The consolidated Betdaq exchange-sportsbook-casino demonstrates our strength as part of GVC and means customers can enjoy an improved experience. “The exchange remains our central product and the complementary introduction of the sportsbook allows us to attract and convert new players. “Supporting the launch with this prominent marketing campaign underlines the value of the product and our confidence in it. We’re excited to work with Ralph again and to welcome Glen to our stable of partnerships. Their profiles and personalities are a perfect fit from a Betdaq brand perspective.” Former Chelsea and Liverpool defender Johnson will provide exclusive views through the 2019/2020 season and share content with his 1.1m Twitter followers. The 54-cap England international joins Champion Hurdle-winning trainer Gavin Cromwell as a Betdaq ambassador. Having won the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup twice, Johnson is now a media pundit and part-owner of a string of 20 horses that includes Encore D’Or.Johnson said: “While I’m known for my football career, I’ve always been passionate about and actively involved in a number of other sports, especially golf and racing. “The opportunity to combine these interests with Betdaq was too good to turn down. As a responsible, customer-focused operator I am very much looking forward to working with the team and sharing my opinions across a range of sports.” Betdaq’s new TV ad campaign with Ineson (The Office, Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Harry Potter, Chernobyl) maintains a no-nonsense style that celebrates its ongoing #ChangingForTheBettor commitment and fixed-rate commission.Produced by agency Alpha Century, the 30-second clip is set in a stylish apartment and demonstrates the suite of entertaining, quality products now offered together to Betdaq customers. The spot follows last year’s initial campaign featuring Ineson and goes live today across multiple channels in the UK and Ireland.“Having worked successfully together last year, I’m delighted to team up with Betdaq again and be a part of the launch of their new sportsbook,” said Ineson. “The spot is confident and straight-talking and reinforces the Betdaq #ChangingForTheBetter thinking.” Alpha Century Head of Strategy Matt Buttrick commented: “Betdaq continues to change the way they approach their business and this new campaign builds on that momentum. The brand continues its straight-talking approach which is perfectly executed by Ralph once again.” StumbleUpon GVC hires ‘comms pro’ Tessa Curtis to re-energise media profile August 25, 2020 Related Articles Share Share
