0Shares0000Barcelona’s Argentinian forward Lionel Messi is out of action with a calf injury 10 days before the start of the new season © AFP / Josep LAGOBARCELONA, Spain, Aug 5 – Barcelona captain Leo Messi is out of action less than two weeks ahead of the opening of La Liga season after injuring his right calf in training on Monday.“I wanted to get started and unfortunately I had a mishap during the first training session which will keep me out of action for a while,” the five-time Ballon d’Or winner posted on Instagram. The Argentina star has already been ruled out of the team’s trip to Florida for a one-off friendly against Napoli in Miami on Wednesday.“Tests carried out have diagnosed a grade 1 calf strain,” the Spanish champions said in a statement, an injury that can require around two weeks of recuperation.“Messi will remain in Barcelona and will now not travel to the USA for the club’s tour. His availability to come back to action will be dictated by his recovery from the injury.”Messi, who was at the Camp Nou on Sunday for the squad presentation ahead of the match against Arsenal, said he was sorry to be missing the Florida trip.“I wanted to be with the team and with the people who follow us in the US,” said Messi.“This time it will not be possible but we will meet again soon. I kiss you all.”The club open the new La Liga campaign at Athletic Bilbao on August 16.0Shares0000(Visited 21 times, 1 visits today)
Pieros Sotiriou’s second-half strike handed Apoel a massive three points against Young Boys which leaves them on the brink of qualification to the knockout stages of the Europa League.The Cypriot international, along with Efrem, missed a host of chances but persistence paid off and Apoel now sit top of Group B, five points clear of third place with two games remaining.Apoel made their intentions clear right from the off, as they came bursting out of the traps. Efrem, who opened the scoring in Switzerland two weeks ago, stole the ball high up the pitch before striking from the edge of the box, forcing Young Boys keeper Mvogo into a full-stretch tip wide.From the resulting corner, the cross from Efstathios Aloneftis was met by Sotiriou but the striker headed well over the crossbar.Young Boys had a similar chance at the other end just minutes later. After the hat-trick he scored against Apoel in the 3-1 win a fortnight ago, Guillaume Hoarau was the last player they should have been allowing a free header, but thankfully for the Cypriot side, the big man could only guide his effort into the hands of Waterman.Aloneftis has slowly earned his spot in the Apoel lineup after some recent impressive showings and the winger fully justified his start. Sotiriou smartly attempted to flick in Aloneftis’ near-post cross, only for the effort to hit the outside of the post.On 35 minutes, Apoel simply should have taken the lead. A backward header intended for the goalkeeper was short and, even though Efrem was being flagged by the linesman, the referee allowed play to continue. The forward however failed to show composure and blasted the ball straight at the chest of the onrushing keeper.The Aloneftis-Sotiriou connection seemed Apoel’s more likely route to goal. Adding to the two chances in the first half, another three followed in the opening ten minutes of the second.The first was a low cross from deep, and with the keeper stranded, the striker managed to get his toe to the ball first but could not divert goalwards. The second was from a free-kick which Sotiriou rose well to meet but could not get over it enough to head under rather than over the over the bar and it was a comparable scenario for the third.Just after the hour mark came the game’s turning point. Within just over a minute of Mbabu coming on for Young Boys, a late lunge on Carlao saw him pick up a straight red card.A minute later, Sotiriou controlled a lofted Lago cross before shifting beyond his man and placing neatly beyond the keeper into the far post for 1-0. The 23-year-old appeared to have brought the ball down with his hand but, on the balance of play, it was a deserved lead.Efrem’s disastrous night in front of goal continued. Having missed another gilt-edged chance before the goal, he spurned his easiest chance with ten minutes left to set up a nail-biting finish. But it would not prove costly as Apoel held on for an invaluable victory.In the group’s other game between Astana and Olympiacos, the two sides shared a 1-1 draw, meaning that the Cypriots can tie up qualification with a win in Kazakhstan on 24 November or if the Greeks prevent Young Boys from winning in Piraeus later that evening.Results from Europa League’s other matches on Thursday:Fenerbahce 2 – 1 Man UnitedZorya Luhansk 1 – 1 FeyenoordFC Astana 1 -1 OlympiacosFK Qabala 1 -2 Saint-EtienneAnderlecht 6 – 1 MainzMaccabi Tel Aviv 0 – 0 AZ AlkmaarZenit 2 -1 DundalkAstra Giurgiu 1 -1 Viktoria PlzenAustria Vienna 2 – 4 RomaAthletic Bilbao 5 – 3 KRC GenkSassuolo 2 -2 Rapid ViennaFiorentina 3 – 0 Slovan LiberecPaok Salonika 0 – 1 FK QarabagSouthampton 2 – 1 Inter MilanSparta Prague 2 – 0 Hapoel Be’er ShevaFC Zürich 0 – 0 Steaua BucVillarreal 1 – 2 OsmanlisporAjax 3 – 2 Celta VigoPanathinaikos 0 – 3 Standard LiegeKAA Gent 3 – 5 Shakt DonskSporting Braga 3 – 1 KonyasporSchalke 2 – 0 FK KrasnodarNice 0 – 2 FC RB SalzbSource: http://cyprus-mail.com/TweetPinShare0 Shares
Kentucky freshman center Nerlens Noel will undergo surgery on his left knee – injured Feb. 12 at Florida – on Tuesday by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews.James will operate on Noel to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament, which will take Noel six to eight months to fully recover. Scott Mair of University of Kentucky Sports Medicine will observe and coordinate Noel’s rehabilitation process, according to ESPN.com.Before Noel suffered the injury against the Florida Gators, the 6-foot-10 freshman was projected as a lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, which influenced his decision when to have the surgery. He was leading the nation with 106 blocks before getting hurt.“Due to the unique timetable for Nerlens’ recovery in regards to the NBA Draft deadline, the University of Kentucky and Noel’s family thought it was in his best interest to have his surgery performed by Dr. Andrews in Florida,” Kentucky athletic department spokesman DeWayne Peevy said in a statement.Having Andrews to perform the surgery allows Andrews the accessibility to communicate with NBA personnel regarding his post-surgery recovery since Andrews has strong ties to NBA franchises. Kentucky is prohibited from speaking with NBA teams.Wildcats coach John Calipari declined to comment on Noel’s return to the team when asked during a teleconference on Monday.Noel, who was initially expected to have to surgery within two to three weeks of the incident, will not be with team at the Southeastern Conference tournament beginning Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn.“After talking with my family, I decided to schedule my surgery over spring break so I wouldn’t miss as much class,” Noel said in a statement. “I wish all my teammates luck in the SEC tournament and look forward to getting back to Lexington as soon as I can to begin my rehab and finish my school work.”The Wildcats have been inconsistent without Noel in their starting rotation, going 4-3 without him. They are currently 21-10 overall and 12-6 in SEC in play. They suffered a 30-point drilling to Tennessee in their first game without Noel, losing 88-58. But they managed to pull off three consecutive wins after the loss.Their inconsistent play had the reigning national champions on the bubble to reach the NCAA tournament until they defeated the Gators Saturday 61-57, which earned them a No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. But they cannot afford a bad loss in the SEC tournament if they want to make it back NCAA tournament.
4 min read Register Now » March 20, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Meet Bond, a cyborg with an impressive grip on penmanship — yours or anyone’s.This boxy bot’s express purpose is to write letters and thank you notes on your behalf. Remember letters? Those pre-Snapchat relics of the past that not many people take time for anymore, least of all busy business owners. Yeah, those. Can’t swing sending them? Leave it to Bond. With a fancy black fountain pen clamped in its robotic “hand,” the nimble robot writes out every word of each personalized correspondence its tasked with. It signs them, too, so you don’t have to. Then its team of humans, the enterprising people at the New York City-based startup Bond, neatly tuck the bot’s letters into envelopes, seal them with a golden seal of wax (regal crown-shaped Bond logo included) and even address, stamp and mail them for you.Related: In Japan, a ‘Strange Hotel’ Will Be Staffed Almost Entirely By RobotsSigned, sealed, delivered — time saved. And all those loyal friends and customers you’ve been meaning to personally thank will appreciate the written sentiment…and they’ll never know that a funky robotic forger did the deed for you. At least that’s the idea.“Most business people truly do care about their customers, but as they get more customers, they lose the ability to stay in touch,” Bond founder and CEO Sonny Caberwal says. “Bond lets you deliver the personal touch, at scale.” How it works: First you go to Bond’s website from your smartphone or computer. (Caberwal says a Bond iOS app is coming this summer.) You can either have a letter written by Bond in one of five prefab handwriting styles or you can use your own handwriting. For the second — and way cooler — option, you fill out a handwriting sample form, scan it and email it back to Bond and the bot learns your writing style. Either way, you have to enter the complete text of your letter on the website so Bond knows what to write, along with the address(es) to send it to.Related: Star Wars + Drones = Dreams Come TrueUsing Bond’s pretty prefab handwriting is free, but hiring Bond to write just like you isn’t cheap. The fee for Bond to acquire and store your handwriting is $199. Whichever you choose, individual cards cost $2.99 and up to send, plus postage. The customizable cards come in a bunch of trendy stationery styles and are less expensive if you order in bulk. You can also add your brand logo to them at no additional cost. We can see the service coming in handy for newlyweds, salespeople, marketers and for anyone tasked with sending umpteen invites, thank yous, holiday cards or insert whichever time-consuming written correspondence you don’t want to deal with.Related: No Sci-Fi Here: Your Own Personal Robot Is Coming“I think everyone can think of a time they meant to send someone something to say thanks, but didn’t,” Caberwal says, “not because they didn’t care, but because they didn’t have a card, pen, envelope, or stamp. Our goal is to make sending a beautiful, personal, and tangible note as easy as a text message.” To see Bond beautifully reviving the lost art of the handwritten note — hands-free — check out the videos below:Related: Say Hello to the Robotic Personal Assistant of Your Dreams
