0Shares0000Liverpool and England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is treated on the pitch during the Champions League semi-final against Roma at AnfieldLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 18 – Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to miss the whole of the forthcoming season, with the Premier League club saying Wednesday that they were already aware of the grim scenario.The 24-year-old suffered multiple knee ligament damage during the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Roma in April and underwent successful surgery eight days later. “The estimated length of his lay-off was not revealed at the time at the request of Oxlade-Chamberlain, who did not want the news to distract from the Reds’ ongoing Champions League run and the excitement surrounding it,” said a Liverpool statement.Manager Jurgen Klopp told liverpoolfc.com that he was aware that the former Arsenal star would likely be unavailable for the 2018/2019 season.!It feels like now is an appropriate time to tell people that for Ox this coming season will be about focusing on recovery and rehab,” said Klopp.“We have known this from pretty much the day after he got the injury and after the successful surgery, we were sure of it. I hope everyone treats this information responsibly. There has been no change, no setback – it’s exactly on the schedule we expected and planned for. The new information is that we’re now giving more detail publicly.“It is typical of Ox that he didn’t want the news to overshadow the end of the season and, to be quite honest, we thought we could wait and tell people at an appropriate time.“His recovery has started superbly well. If we do see him back this season it will be a bonus.”Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool last summer from Arsenal in a £35million deal but the injury ruled him out of the Champions League final against Real Madrid and the World Cup with England.“It is so important — because of how valuable and important he is to what we are looking to do here in the coming seasons — that the focus is on doing this right and not rushed. Ox is completely on board with this approach.“He is such an outstandingly good person and someone who even when not playing is integral to the heartbeat of (training centre) Melwood.“I cannot wait to have him back with us for matches, but we will wait for him and we will show the patience that is required to make sure he comes back ready to continue where he left off: as one of the most outstanding performers in European football in that moment.”Klopp has already boosted Liverpool’s midfield ahead of the new season by signing Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
COURTS: Man whose request to subdivide mobile park was rejected sues for $71.4 million. By Gene Maddaus STAFF WRITER Mobile home park owner James Goldstein has filed a $71.4 million claim against the city of Carson in the wake of the City Council’s controversial decision to reject a proposed condominium conversion. Backed by vocal objections from park residents, the council voted 3-2 two weeks ago to deny Goldstein’s application to subdivide the Carson Harbor Village Mobile Home Park. Goldstein had offered a $10 million financing package, infrastructure improvements and other incentives to try to persuade residents to support the conversion plan. But a majority either did not trust Goldstein to keep his word or feared that their rents would rise dramatically if they chose not to buy the land under their mobile homes. Carson Mayor Jim Dear vowed that he would support the residents’ wishes, and was joined in rejecting the conversion by Councilmen Harold Williams and Elito Santarina. Councilman Mike Gipson and Councilwoman Lula Davis-Holmes abstained. The city staff had recommended that the council approve the conversion, since state law gives cities little authority to regulate such applications. Goldstein fought and won a similar battle in the city of Palm Springs, and his representatives had vowed to sue if the conversion were denied. The claim, which was filed Friday, is a precursor to a lawsuit. “I would say the City Council was well aware from the advice it received from its own staff that it would be subject to a lawsuit for damages if it were to deny Carson Harbor’s application,” said Thomas Casparian, Goldstein’s attorney. Casparian said the $71.4 million figure is the difference between the value of the park with the conversion approval and the value without. If a judge eventually orders the conversion to go through, Casparian said the damages would be recalculated. Goldstein is suing the city of Palm Springs for lost profits stemming from the litigation there. A pending state law would give cities the authority to maintain local rent control after condo-conversions of mobile home parks. The bill has passed the Legislature, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has yet to act on it. firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Boeing executives had argued that a military enemy seeking the chip would have alternatives to buying a $60 million jet and taking apart the flight box. But the State Department said Boeing’s sales weren’t licensed. And 19 of the planes went to China, where the U.S. export of listed defense items is specifically prohibited. The company said it has taken steps to prevent further violations. “There is a greater awareness of what the regulations are,” Neale said. The oversight agreement was signed March 28. The company had faced a maximum fine of $43 million. CHICAGO – The Boeing Co. has agreed to pay $15 million to settle federal allegations that it broke the law by selling commercial airplanes equipped with a small chip that has military applications. It is among the largest fines a company has ever faced for violations of the Arms Control Export Act, which regulates the sale of defense products to overseas interests. The Chicago-based company also agreed to oversight requirements because settlements over previous violations didn’t result in full compliance. According to the State Department charges, Boeing shipped 94 commercial jets overseas between 2000 and 2003 that carried the QRS-11 gyrochip embedded in the flight boxes. At the time, the chip, used in the guidance system of the Maverick missile, was on a list of products that required a license for foreign sales. The chip is part of a backup system that maintains an artificial horizon for the pilots, Boeing spokesman Tim Neale said Saturday. Under the settlement, first reported by The Seattle Times, Boeing must appoint an independent, external officer to oversee companywide export-control compliance for two years and retain an outside firm to audit its efforts. Boeing has been working closely with the State Department to “tighten up” its export process, Neale said. “We have taken a number of steps to put a more robust export compliance system in place,” he said. “And what we’re committing to do in this agreement is to continue working with them to make sure we are in compliance.” To ensure compliance, the company promises to cooperate with on-site audits for three years. Boeing has paid millions in previous settlements.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

The late Bogdan MichalkiewiczA jury will hear evidence how a Polish man had a television dropped on his head during an attack at his home in Letterkenny.The arthritic man living alone in an apartment was stabbed several times, a barrister told the Central Criminal Court today.Alex Owens SC was outlining the prosecution case as he opened the trial of two men accused of murdering Bogdan Michalkiewicz (41), at Westside Apartments in Letterkenny, on May 13, 2013. During a second arraignment today, Krystof Grzegorski (22), of Hazelbrook Park, Letterkenny pleaded not guilty to murder, but guilty to manslaughter. Mr Owens said the plea was not accepted by the prosecution.His co-accused Dariusz Weckowicz (51), who lived in Letterkenny at the time, pleaded not guilty to murder.Mr Owens said that the deceased lived alone in the apartment where his body was discovered by his brother, two days after he had died.The apartment complex was mostly unoccupied at the time with tenants in just one other flat. Mr Michalkiewicz, who came to Ireland in 2005, received a disability pension due to an arthritic condition and he required a crutch to walk.He said the prosecution would call witnesses who would show that Mr Michalkiewicz suffered stab wounds to the face and abdomen and multiple “stamp” and “crush” injuries to the body.He added that evidence will show that a television was “dropped on his head. His head was smashed in.”He said the prosecution believes that the attack took place at about 1pm. The two accused then spent the evening together at various locations in Letterkenny but Dariusz Weckowicz returned that night and slept on a couch outside the apartment where Mr Michalkiewicz’s body lay.The court then heard from Detective Sergeant Paul Curran of the Garda Technical Bureau who photographed the scene.He described seeing the body in the living room and blood stains on the walls and carpet. Close by was a knife, an overturned chair, a broken computer and a cathode ray television that had been smashed.He said the dead man’s upper clothes had been lifted and that his lower garments were lowered to his knees.He also described a photograph that was shown to the jury which he said showed a bloody t-shirt, found at the scene, with footprint impressions in it.The trial continues tomorrow in front of a jury of eight men and four women.MURDER TRIAL TO HEAR HOW TELEVISION WAS DROPPED ON MAN’S HEAD was last modified: June 14th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
