Sounders advance to West finals with 2-0 win over Salt Lake

first_img Tags: MLS/MLS Cup Playoffs/Real Salt Lake/Seattle Sounders Associated Press October 23, 2019 /Sports News – Local Sounders advance to West finals with 2-0 win over Salt Lake Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEATTLE (AP) — Gustav Svensson scored his second career playoff goal in the 64th minute, Nicolas Lodeiro added the capper in the 81st minute and the Seattle Sounders advanced to the Western Conference final for the third time in four seasons with a 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night.Svensson flicked a header off a corner kick past goalkeeper Nick Rimando, in the final match of his career, midway through the second half after Seattle had dominated scoring chances all night. It was Svensson’s first goal of the season.Seattle will face Los Angeles FC or the LA Galaxy in the conference final next Tuesday. The Sounders will host if it’s the Galaxy; they will go to Southern California if LAFC is their opponent. Seattle won each of its last two trips to the conference final under the old format of the MLS Cup playoffs.Svensson’s role for Seattle is a defensive midfielder, but he was the scorer the Sounders needed on a night Rimando made a memorable farewell to MLS after 20 seasons. Rimando was the best player for Salt Lake but couldn’t withstand all of Seattle’s pressure and was eventually beaten late.Rimando finished with seven saves in his final game. He will leave MLS as the league leader in wins, saves, shutouts and games.While RSL controlled possession, Seattle dominated scoring chances, seemingly each one getting closer to finally getting past Rimando. Kelvin Leerdam had a pair of chances denied early in the second half. Rimando first batted away a volleyed attempt then made a quick reaction to keep Leerdam’s deflected cross off Nedum Onuoha from going in for an own goal.Just moments before Svensson’s goal, Rimando tipped Cristian Roldan’s header over the crossbar at the last moment.But Rimando was helpless on Seattle’s breakthrough. The corner kick from Lodeiro came to the near post and without a defender on the goal line at the post Rimando couldn’t react in time.Lodeiro’s insurance goal was started by a perfect pass from Brad Smith to Raul Ruidiaz, who smartly left it off for Lodeiro to finish.Salt Lake’s Everton Luiz was shown a red card in the 85th minute for a challenge on Svensson. RSL finished with just seven shots and only one on target.last_img read more

Foreign influx is fake

first_imgOxford University dismissed talk of an influx of foreign students this week, following Saturday’s admission of ten new states to the European Union. The number of students wishing to study in the UK from one of those states, Cyprus, doubled in 2004 to 1,458. As EU students, they will not be eligible for maintenance grants or loans. A spokesperson for the University, told Cherwell that, “Oxford is not expecting a massive influx,” and praised the diversity and tolerance of the student body. There are currently 4,600 non-UK students at Oxford, but only 106 are from the new EU states. Foreign students are estimated to pay £31.5 billion a year in fees, and contribute £33 billion to the economy. Although students from the EU pay lower fees than those from elsewhere, they are expected to cover their own living costs. As a result, Ana Perez de Ayala, a Spanish second year Physics student, believes “the main difficulties for foreign students are financial ones.” The University, which claims to have “rigorous methods of distinguishing between very able candidates”, also quashed suggestions that they would introduce a lottery system for oversubscribed courses. Both Leeds Metropolitan and Huddersfield University operate the scheme for physiology, which receives twenty applications for every place.ARCHIVE: 1st week TT 2004last_img read more

Ocean City Taxpayers May See 4 Percent Increase in 2014

first_imgThe public got its first glimpse of Mayor Jay Gillian’s proposed budget for 2014 on Thursday.Despite a plan that calls for a spending increase of just 1.01 percent, property owners are looking at a proposed 4.09 percent increase on the tax rate.The bottom line for taxpayers: an increase of 1.579 cents for every $100 of assessed value. That means taxpayers will pay an extra $15.79 in taxes for every $100,000 worth of property. The owner of a (not-quite-median) $500,000 home would see an increase of $78.95 in municipal taxes (not including school taxes or county taxes).__________See the 2014 Ocean City draft budget summary.__________For the third year in a row, Gillian’s administration delivered a draft budget to City Council that holds budget increases to about 1 percent or under. But two factors work against taxpayers:The city has less property value to tax: The ratable base fell by $133 million or 1.17 percent (through reassessments of about 4,000 homes and through tax appeals).Revenue is expected to be about $500,000 less (the city anticipates using less of its surplus and having fewer delinquent taxes to collect).The tax levy to Ocean City taxpayers increases by $1,261,729.60 — on average property owners will pay an extra 2.89 percent. Taxpayers whose homes were reassessed may pay less overall in taxes. Owners whose homes were not reassessed will pay the extra 4.09 percent.The introduction of the budget is the first step in a process that leads to final adoption in the spring.City Council will hold public workshops on the budget 6 p.m. Feb. 19 and 20 at the Ocean City Free Public Library.With a multi-year “compliance plan” to reassess homes now complete, the city’s ratable base and tax rate should begin to stabilize next year.Read narrative on next year’s budget in Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s ‘State of the City’ address.last_img read more

Retiring Brokaw: Journalists should get out of power centers

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — Tom Brokaw has one urgent piece of advice for television journalists as he retires. He says get away from coastal power centers like New York, Washington and Los Angeles and go to the middle of the country. And he suggests they don’t just visit, but live there. He says a preoccupation with the coasts has kept journalists in the dark about stories as they brew and cited the Capitol insurrection as one example. Brokaw says he’s impressed with a young generation of reporters. He’s more pessimistic about how long it will take journalists to recover from being attacked by former President Donald Trump. Brokaw was with NBC News for 55 years.last_img

Poles hold more protests over abortion; activist released

first_imgWARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poles have taken to the streets of Warsaw, Gdansk and others cities for a third night of protests after a near-total abortion ban took effect. The new ruling leaves Poland with one of the most restrictive laws in Europe. The constitutional court ruled in October to ban abortions in cases of fetal disorders, even severe and fatal ones, and the ruling finally became law on Wednesday. That triggered a new eruption of the mass protests that began three months ago and have since become the largest protest movement in Poland in the three decades since communism fell.last_img
