Items filtered by date: June 2019 Everton are interested in signing the Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus this summer.

According to Ghana web, Everton have already begun negotiations with the player’s club, FC Nordsjaelland.

The 18-year-old is quite highly rated and it will be interesting to see if the two clubs manage to reach an agreement for his services.

If the transfer goes through, Kudus is likely to join up with Everton’s youth side. He is unlikely to make an impact on the first team just yet.

It would certainly be on for the future.

Everton have done well to develop young talents into first-team stars over the years and they will be hoping to do the same with Kudus if the transfer goes through.

As for the player, he might be tempted to move to England and join a big club like Everton.

He will know that a top class youth setup and a first-team manager like Marco Silva could help him fulfill his potential in future.

The highly-rated midfielder can play as forward as well. However, he is at his best as an attacking midfielder.

The 18-year-old managed to score three goals for FC Nordsjaelland this past season.

Published in Parliament As per a report from ESPN, Chelsea will meet with Derby County boss Frank Lampard this week to table a 3-year contract offer to their former midfielder.

Lampard’s Rams’ stint

Blues’ legend Lampard was named the manager of Championship outfit Derby last summer.

His appointment marked Lampard’s first in senior management, though it didn’t take long for the former English international to showcase his talents as a tactician.

A solid debut campaign at Pride Park eventually saw Derby finish 6th in the Championship table, securing a playoff berth.

The Rams subsequently went on to defy the odds in putting Leeds to the sword in their playoff semi-final, after mounting a remarkable 2nd-leg comeback.

This left just one fixture between Derby and a return to the Premier League.

In the end, though, Lampard and co. were left disappointed, as a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the playoff final saw Derby confined to 2nd-tier football for the 12th-straight season.

Sarri out, Lampard in?

Reports emerging over the course of the last week, though, have suggested that Lampard’s debut campaign at Pride Park could yet prove to be his solitary season in charge of the Rams.

With Maurizio Sarri having been named the new Juventus boss yesterday afternoon, Chelsea are said to have identified Lampard as their no.1 target to replace the Italian:

And, despite claims that Derby had moved to ward off Chelsea’s interest by opening talks with Lampard over a contract renewal over the weekend, subsequent reportshave suggested that the 40-year-old is nevertheless keen to discuss the vacant hotseat at Stamford Bridge.

As per the latest update courtesy of ESPN, meanwhile, Chelsea will make a formal approach to gauge Lampard’s interest in making a return to the club this week.

At this point, the Blues will offer the English tactician a 3-year contract.

ESPN also label Lampard as ‘the preferred choice’ to replace Maurizio Sarri.

If appointed, former Chelsea academy coach Jody Morris and fitness coach Chris Jones would be expected to join Lampard’s staff.

Published in Sports Leeds United are reportedly interested in the Fenerbahce forward Michael Frey.

The 24-year-old is a target for Middlesbrough as well according to Fotomac.

The report translated by SportWitness claims that the Turkish club are willing to sell the attacker this summer and Middlesbrough are plotting a €5m move.

It seems that Leeds will have to move quickly if they want to sign him this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements and Frey could prove to be a useful addition.

With Roofe injured at times last season, Leeds really struggled to score goals. They cannot afford to go into another season with just one reliable goalscorer.

Bamford is inconsistent and he is best suited to a backup role.

Frey scored 5 goals for Fenerbahce last season but he is quite young and talented. He could develop into a quality player under Bielsa’s guidance. Also, before moving to Turkey he had a 16-goal season with FC Zurich.

It will be interesting to see whether the Whites are prepared to make their move in the coming weeks.

Getting in a striker should be a top priority for Leeds United in the transfer marketthis summer.

NEWYORKDAILY247.COM: Gloria Vanderbilt was born into wealth in New York City in 1924. US artist and fashion icon Gloria Vanderbilt has died aged 95.

She passed away at home with family members by her side, said her son Anderson Cooper, a CNN anchor, after suffering from stomach cancer.

Vanderbilt, known as the “poor little rich girl”, was the great-great-granddaughter of Cornelius Vanderbilt, a 19th Century tycoon.

The socialite, who was married several times, made her name in the 1970s and ’80s as a designer jeans pioneer.

“Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman, who loved life, and lived it on her own terms,” Mr Cooper said in a statement.

“She was a painter, a writer, and designer but also a remarkable mother, wife, and friend.

“She was 95 years old, but ask anyone close to her, and they’d tell you, she was the youngest person they knew, the coolest, and most modern,” the statement added.

Vanderbilt was not even two years old when her father died.

As the beneficiary of a multimillion-dollar trust fund, Vanderbilt became widely known as the “poor little rich girl” in 1934 because of a high-profile custody fight between her mother and her aunt in New York.

The aunt eventually won the legal battle, described by the media at the time as the “trial of the century”.

Vanderbilt was a talented painter and actress. She was also the author of several books.

Published in News & Stories The chief salesman for Airbus says his company already has the technology to fly passenger planes without pilots at all — and is working on winning over regulators and travelers to the idea.

Christian Scherer also said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday that Airbus hopes to be selling hybrid or electric passenger jets by around 2035.

While the company is still far from ready to churn out battery-operated jumbo jets, Scherer said Airbus already has “the technology for autonomous flying” and for planes flown by just one pilot.

“This is not a matter of technology — it’s a matter of interaction with the regulators, the perception in the traveling public,” he told The Associated Press.

“When can we introduce it in large commercial aircraft? That is a matter we are discussing with regulators and customers, but technology-wise, we don’t see a hurdle.”

Several manufacturers are presenting unmanned aircraft at the Paris Air Show, primarily for military purposes — and some are also proposing pilotless “air taxis” of the future.

When it comes to autonomous passenger jets, safety is an obvious concern. It’s an issue that is on many minds after two deadly crashes of the Boeing 737 Max jet that have implicated problematic anti-stall software.

Scherer said the crashes “highlighted and underlined the need for absolute, uncompromising safety in this industry, whether from Airbus, Boeing or any other plane.”

While he said Airbus’ sales streategy hasn’t changed as a result of the crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, “there is a capacity need that materialized as a result of this, and naturally you have airlines that are frustrated over capacity, that are looking for answers.”

Airbus announced several orders Monday as the air show kicked off, while Boeing had an anemic day as it works to win back trust from customers.

Scherer forecast continued growth in the aviation industry after several boom years, predicting the world will need at least 37,000 new aircraft in the next 20 years, especially in Asia — and that eventually the whole industry will stop creating emissions and “decarbonize.”

Lauryn Hill, who?! For her first-ever performance at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Lizzo channeled that musical great while creatively paying homage to the 1993 comedy Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit — and taking the show to church in the process.

Specifically, Lizzo recreated the film’s climatic scene: Hill’s Rita belts a gospel standard, then she and the rest of the student choir ditch their robes for a confident, exhilarating performance. In Lizzo’s case, she belted out her smash single “Juice” while a crew of hyped-up break dancers twirled and spun around her. But it was all eyes on the singer herself, who stunned in an all-denim outfit and glittery hair, proving why Elizabeth Moss, Tiffany Haddish, and Melissa McCarthy were justified in introducing her as “100 percent that bitch.”

The “Juice” diva even paused the song at one point to break into a Sister Act-inspired vocal exercise, before seamlessly transitioning right back into her shinin’ hit anthem. Check out the praise-worthy performance below.

Ronson’s new record, ‘Late Night Feelings’, is released this week.

Mark Ronson has released ‘Pieces of Us’, the latest single from his forthcoming record ‘Late Night Feelings’.

The collaboration with King Princess features on the super-producer’s fifth record, which drops this Friday (June 21), and is a twinkling throwback to ’80s pop ballads.

Joining the Grammy award-winning musician and producer on the new latest record are Alicia Keys, Angel Olsen, Lykke Li, and more.

The first single shared from the album was Ronson’s 2018 collaboration with Miley Cyrus, ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’. More recently, he shared ‘Find U Again’ (feat. Camila Cabello), which was co-written by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker.

In an interview with NME last November, Ronson explained why he was releasing a new solo record despite having several other projects to focus on.

“I think that, basically, I was working on it for a couple of years. As soon as ‘Uptown Special’ began to die down and we were done touring. [In 2017], while I was working on some stuff with Silk City and working on some stuff with Kevin from Tame Impala, I was floundering a bit. I was going through some shit in my personal life, and I was just a little messy and un-anchored. I was just throwing a lot of shit at the wall – I was starting to get a little removed from the music.

“I think I was probably trying to make some fun shit and some club shit, but the only thing that came out of my fingers when I’d sit at the keyboard was something that had a little more emotion in it.”

The European Union (EU) has warned Nigeria not to take its democracy for granted.

The commission, which said Nigeria did not have a perfect electioneering process in the past general elections, added that there is room for improvement.

But EU noted that for this to happen, there needs to be above all the participation of youths, who he said are more than 60 per cent of Nigeria’s current population.

Head of EU delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Ambassador Ketil Karlsen said the union was impressed by the amazing work the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members did during the general elections.

Karlsen spoke yesterday in Abuja, the nation’s capital, while presenting Information Technology (IT) equipment to 75 corps members involved in this year’s general elections at the NYSC camp.

He said: “We wanted to make the process leading to the elections about the youths. More than 60 per cent of the population in Nigeria comprises of youths. A vast majority of the voters are youths. So, we wanted to maximise, to an extent possible, the engagement of youths in the elections and we did that by reaching out to them in the six geopolitical zones.

“Now, we have come on the other side of the elections; if you have watched the news, you would have seen that we have just been concluding the observation mission of the EU. We have observed every general election since 1999. Today is about telling everybody that whether in Europe or Africa – and certainly Nigeria – you should not take democracy for granted.

“Did we have perfect elections? Of course, not. Is there room for improvement? Of course, there is. But for that to happen, we need, above all, to see the participation of youths. That is what today’s event is all about.

“Just immediately after the elections, we sat down and brainstormed on what to do to thank the corps members who participated in the general elections.

“I saw youth coppers keeping calm while people were fighting around them during the elections and young women calmly addressing angry crowds. You are the backbone of democracy; the elections would not even be possible without the participation of youth corps members.

“So, we sat back and said what can we do to thank you? We were able to convince the EU to do something that has never been done before, which was that the equipment used during the observation mission would be handed over directly to 75 youth coppers that participated.”

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said the commission realised that youth corps members are the most dedicated election duty workers.

He stressed that the commission was working on offering automatic employment to NYSC members who were exceptional during the elections.

The chairman promised that the offer will be extended to corps members that will participate in the upcoming Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

Yakubu said: “Let me join the EU ambassador in appreciating particularly the youth corps members. There cannot be any election in Nigeria without the NYSC. I’ve said it before that youths corps members are the most dedicated, educated and patriotic election duty workers in Nigeria. It is not just the elections but electoral processes as well.

“Anytime an election is conducted, no one in the INEC sleeps until we have accounted for every Election Day worker, particularly the NYSC members.

“In addition to what the EU is doing today, the commission has embarked on the review of the 2019 elections. There are many corps members who did very well during the elections. We will reward those who have done excellent during the elections with automatic employment, including those who will participate in the two major elections that will be conducted in November: the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.”
