Premier League: Leicester City Make History with 9-goal Destruction of Southampton

Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Southampton: Leicester City went into the Premier League record books on Friday with a 9-0 hammering of Southampton that equalled the biggest ever win in the history of the division.Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy both hit hat-tricks as Brendan Rodgers’ side moved second with a huge win that continued their superb start to the season. The rout equalled Manchester United’s 9-0 demolition of Ipswich at Old Trafford in March 1995.Leicester are just five points behind league leaders Liverpool, who host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, after a historic display that sank the Saints, who drop into the relegation zone on goal difference, at a soaking wet St Mary’s Stadium.However, despite the massive margin of victory they can still be caught by reigning champions Manchester City, who will retake second spot should they win as expected against Aston Villa on Saturday.”We said at half time, keep your speed in the game and we have to punish them,” said Rodgers.”This is part of our education. We have to come out of the boy zone and play like men and respect the game. They are very talented and learning to be ruthless.”Ben Chilwell began the destruction in the 10th minute when he tapped in on the rebound, and Ryan Bertrand’s red card — awarded via VAR for a late tackle on Ayoze Perez in the build-up to the opener — helped the away side open the floodgates.Quickfire strikes from Youri Tielemans and Perez put Leicester three goals to the good with less than 20 minutes gone amid a downpour on the south coast.Perez struck again seven minutes before the break from a Chilwell cross to make it four before Vardy scored his first of the evening as Leicester racked up five goals in the first half of a league match for the first time since 1984.It was also the first time that a side had crashed home that many goals in the opening period of a Premier League game since Manchester City beat Burnley 6-1 in April 2010.That didn’t stop Leicester from raining down goals on Southampton however, with two coming within a minute just before the hour mark.First Perez completed his treble after collecting Hervey Barnes’ superb lofted through ball in the 57th minute, and Vardy headed home from another precise Chilwell cross seconds later.James Maddison made it a record-breaking away scoreline with five minutes remaining when he swung home a perfect free-kick that zipped past the desperate Angus Gunn.And Vardy sealed Leicester’s place in the record books with his ninth of the season deep into stoppage, firing home a penalty that also took him top of the Premier League scoring charts with nine goals after he was brought down by Jan Bednarek.”It was an embarrassing performance, the stuff of nightmare and especially playing at home,” Saints’ Nathan Redmond told Sky Sports.

Libya needs to move ahead now or risk division and collapse UN

“It is with a very heavy heart that I begin my briefing to you noting that humanitarian situation in Libya has deteriorated further, against the background of poor funding for the humanitarian response,” Martin Kobler, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), told the 15-member Council.Libya is a country of six million people, with significant resources. But, across the country, the UN estimates that 2.4 million individuals are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance. In addition, more than 40 per cent of the health facilities in Libya are not functioning, and over one million children under the age of five are at risk of being affected by a vaccine shortage.“It is now imperative that Libyan political actors take responsibility in the higher interest of the Libyan people to stop human suffering,” urged Mr. Kobler, adding that the process towards a democratic transition has continued to meet a number of milestones but at the same time remains precarious.No effective State institutionsTwo weeks ago, on 17 February, Libya marked the fifth anniversary of the 2011 revolution which toppled the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi. However, five years on, the UN envoy highlighted that the current political and military vacuum “is allowing terrorist groups and criminal networks to establish deep roots,” as Libya has “no effective state institutions.”According to the Special Representative, the overwhelming majority of the Libyan people are in favour of the Libyan Political Agreement, and support the formation of a Government of National Accord that can effectively address the existing threats.“The overwhelming majority want and deserve peace – now,” Mr. Kobler insisted. “Some of those politically responsible on both sides, however, still refuse to listen to the voices of the Libyan people and pursue their own narrow political interests. In my last briefing to the Security Council, I promised to broaden the basis of support to the Libyan Political Agreement.”He underlined that with his colleagues and the international community, they have persistently reached out to those who are opposing the Libyan Political Agreement. “However, until now we are unable to convince them to go the way of peace and unity,” he reported.Latest political updateOn 15 January, the Presidency Council presented a cabinet for approval by the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives voted to endorse the Libyan Political Agreement in principle, but it requested the Presidency Council nominate a new and smaller cabinet, he said.After days of deliberations, on 14 February the Presidency Council finalized a new list of candidates for a streamlined cabinet. On 22 February, the House of Representatives met to consider the Presidency Council’s second cabinet. However, its session was interrupted by a minority of parliamentarians who opposed the vote, and who, Mr. Kobler explained, resorted to threats and intimidation preventing the majority to freely express its vote.“Nonetheless, this majority gathered 100 signatures in support of endorsement of the newcabinet and its programme,” he continued. “I am convinced that a positive vote could have taken place on 22 February, had the leadership of the House of Representatives shown the resolve and determination to put the Government of National Accord to a vote.”Mr. Kobler informed the Council that he has written to the Speaker of the House of Representatives to register the will of the democratic majority, and formalize its endorsement of the unity government. “Failing such recognition and a positive endorsement by the House of Representatives by early next week, Libyans have to go on. I intend to reconvene the Libyan Political Dialogue to explore the way forward in line with the Libyan Political Agreement,” he noted, highlighting how he intends to proceed.Terrorist groups taking advantage of vacuumOn the security front, Mr. Kobler said that Da’esh, or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is taking advantage of the political and security vacuum and is expanding to the West, East and to the South. “While Libya’s financial resources are dwindling, the criminal networks, including human smuggling, are booming,” he warned.During an assault last week, Da’esh reportedly killed 17 people, beheading several of them. The terrorist group has also continued to carry out multiple beheadings and atrocities in their stronghold, Sirte. “Da’esh in Libya constitutes an urgent and growing threat to Libya, the region and beyond. However, the fight against violent extremism can only be sustainable if it is led by a national unity government that puts in place and prioritises a national agenda to address the country’s most immediate challenges and works to meet the aspirations and expectations of the Libyan people,” stressed the UN envoy.On the issue of gender equality, Mr Kobler told the Council he has continued to strongly advocate increased women participation in Libyan political life, in particular by calling for a 30 per cent share of ministerial posts in the Government of National Accord. “Sadly, my calls have not been heeded,” he said.Finally, he underlined that Libya’s neighbours, are suffering direct consequences of the country’s instability and that he is committed to fully engage with them in reaching a political solution to the crisis. read more

Audit says CSU stashed away 15 billion and raised tuition

first_img Posted: June 21, 2019 Audit says CSU stashed away $1.5 billion and raised tuition Categories: California News, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter AP AP, June 21, 2019 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The California State University system kept $1.5 billion in discretionary reserves while it raised tuition and lobbied the Legislature for more state funding, according to a report released Thursday by the state auditor.Auditor Elaine Howle’s report says that CSU accumulated the surplus from 2008 to 2018, primarily from student tuition. During that same time period, it nearly doubled student tuition at its 23 campuses but did not fully inform legislators and students about its surplus.Tuition at CSU campuses rose from $3,048 in 2008-2009 to $5,742 in 2017-18.The audit says the chancellor’s office used the money to cover the cost of instruction and other operating costs. It said CSU kept the money outside of the state treasury and did not disclose the surplus in key documents it provided to legislators and students.“By failing to disclose this surplus when consulting with students about tuition increases or when projecting CSU’s resources and needs to the Legislature, the Chancellor’s Office has prevented legislators and students from evaluating CSU’s financial needs,” the report said.The audit’s findings are the latest to tarnish the image of California’s public university systems. In a 2017 audit of the University of California, Howle found misleading budget practices and that administrators had kept tens of millions of dollars in reserves not properly disclosed to the public.CSU Chancellor Timothy White said in a statement Thursday the report was misleading and mischaracterized the purpose of reserve funds, which help to deal with state recessions and cover the cost of maintenance or other expenses previously paid for by the state.“It is irresponsible to imply that these one-time funds could have been used in lieu of ongoing revenue sources, such as state funding, or student tuition, for ongoing costs,” White said. He also said it was incorrect to claim that CSU did not fully disclose the funds. He said the audit’s conclusion “overlooks dozens of presentations of publicly available reports that included information about these funds.”The report also criticized CSU for building expensive parking facilities at four of its campuses, which did little to alleviate parking problems but resulted in higher fees for students. It said CSU raised the cost of parking permits as much as $236 per semester to pay for the new structures at its campuses in Sacramento, San Diego, Fullerton and the Channel Islands.The report recommended that the chancellor’s office be required to publish details of its discretionary surplus and take other steps to improve financial transparency, to ensure that details are easily available to trustees, legislators, students and the public. last_img read more
