Rangers boss criticizes referee after defeat to rivals

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard has criticized referee Willie Collum after his side’s loss to rivals to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.The Gers lost their first Old Firm Derby under Gerrard courtesy of a goal from Olivier Ntcham but the Rangers boss says there was a foul committed on a Rangers player in the build to the goal.For me it’s a foul,” Gerrard said about the challenge of Celtic’s Tom Rogic onRangers’ Ryan Jack, according to HeraldScotland.“For me it’s a foul and it’s also a foul for the fourth official, who shouted down his mic ‘foul, foul, foul’. The referee in the middle has ignored that advice.”“For me it’s a blatant foul, he’s swept his legs. Jacko did well to get himself in between the man and the ball, but for me it’s a clear foul.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.Gerrard, whose Rangers team fell four points behind Celtic in the top flight table with the defeat, spoke to Collum at the end of the game and revealed the match official stood by his decision.“He disagreed,” he said. “He didn’t think it was a foul. I think when he sees it again he will change his mind because it’s a blatant foul. I’ve seen it again, five times.”But the former Liverpool and England midfielder, who was involved in an Old Firm derby for the first time, admitted he was perplexed the referee had refused to listen to his fourth official.“Why are they there?” he said. “Say for example, there is a red card incident for them or for us and the fourth official is saying it’s a red it’s a red, I think he’d come over, speak to him, and take the advice.“Now if he did and we were in the wrong or one of my men get sent off I’d look at it and say I it was a red card. But he hasn’t come over to chat about it.“Five or six minutes later another foul happened on us and the fourth official shouted ‘foul, foul, foul’ and we didn’t get that one either.”last_img read more

BMW M850i First Edition brings limitededition looks to 400 cars

first_img 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 71 Photos Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. BMW,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker.

This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama.

Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness BMW Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 52 Photoscenter_img GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado.

It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be.

BMW These days, it feels like nearly every new car has some kind of “first edition” or “launch edition” with extra trimmings and a higher price tag. Ahead of the BMW 8 Series’ release, BMW hopped back on that bandwagon with the M850i First Edition.BMW unveiled the M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition on Monday. Offered on just 400 cars, this comprehensive upgrade covers interior and exterior aesthetics, with some additional flourishes by way of a couple optional packages available on other M850i models. That quantity is the worldwide limit, so each market will receive far fewer — the UK, for example, only gets 10 of these cars.On the outside, BMW’s in-house Individual program applied its Frozen Barcelona Blue paint to the body, a color developed just for this car. There’s also a set of 20-inch alloy wheels finished in black. From the options menu, the car ditches its chrome trim in favor of gloss-black bits, and carbon fiber adorns the roof and other various trim pieces.Inside, BMW Individual shows up once again, this time adding a two-tone interior made from blue and white Merino leather. That color combination extends to the steering wheel and the Alcantara suede headliner, both of which are finished in blue. The interior is finished off with piano black trim, unique badges, cut glass knobs and buttons, as well as a Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system. The car also sports several optional packages to boost its complement of tech.Otherwise, it’s the same ol’ M850i as usual. Under the hood is a 523-horsepower, 553-pound-foot 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends its power to all four wheels. While pricing has not yet been announced for the US, the M850i First Edition goes on sale in June.

CPJ urges president Hamid to return Digital Security Act for revision

first_imgThe Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) expressed its deep concern about the Digital Security Act passed by parliament on 18 September.The independent press freedom advocacy organisation, in a letter to Bangladesh president Abdul Hamid, called for returning the act to parliament for review.The letter said CPJ is concerned that this legislation, if allowed to become law, would violate constitutional guarantees of freedom of the press, and would create extensive legal dangers for journalists in the normal course of carrying out their professional activities.“CPJ respectfully urges you to exercise your constitutional authority to return the legislation to parliament for revisions that would eliminate these dangers,” read the letter signed by CPJ’s Asia Programme Coordinator Steven Butler.The letter outlined the concerns repeatedly expressed by the Bangladeshi journalists and asked the members of parliament to address those.“One of the most worrisome provisions of the Digital Security Act is an amendment added at the last minute in Section 43, which will allow police to arrest or search individuals without a warrant.“In addition, the Digital Security Act includes problematic aspects of Section 57 of the Information and Communications Technology Act, despite public promises by government ministers to eliminate it.“Section 57 has been repeatedly used to imprison journalists in defamation cases. Government ministers had previously acknowledged that police have misused Section 57, and had promised that procedures would be established to prevent this. Instead, journalists continue to be subject to the danger of arbitrary arrest in the normal course of their activities.”Also of concern, CPJ added, is the inclusion of the colonial-era Official Secrets Act in the Digital Security Act, which seems to contradict the Right to Information Act provisions, included elsewhere in the legislation. “The extension of the Official Secrets Act into the digital sphere escalates the hazards faced by investigative journalists who play a vital role exposing corruption in government.”The letter expressed fear about the extremely heavy fines and punishments, up to Tk 50 million (US$600,000) and life imprisonment depending on the offense, threaten to make journalism an unacceptably hazardous profession and will result in a timid press that cannot play the important role required to support a vital democracy in Bangladesh.CPJ also expressed concerns over the vague descriptions of potential offenses, such as hurting religious values or causing deterioration in law and order, and said this would invite arbitrary use and misuse of the law to restrict the media.Praising Bangladesh’s 46-year history as a secular democracy with strong affirmations of human rights and freedom of speech and the press, the body feared this legislation will damage that tradition, and severely harm the country’s standing among the community of democracies as a defender of press freedom.“We urge you to take action to prevent this, and ensure that the next bill the legislature sends you adheres to the guarantees made in Bangladesh’s constitution as well as to international norms,” the letter concluded.last_img read more

Suu Kyi likens Rohingya issue to Kashmir

first_imgAung San Suu Kyi. Photo: AFPFacing the problem of Rohingya Muslims, Myanmar’s State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday likened the issue to Kashmir and said that there is the trouble of sifting terrorists from innocent citizens.Suu Kyi told the media here that there was a need to differentiate between terrorists and innocent people and India was well versed with it, as it had been tackling the issue in Kashmir.“You in India will be very well versed in this. Because (there is) a large Muslim community in India and in places like Kashmir, you had this trouble of sorting out the terrorists from the innocent citizens and all those who are not involved in the terrorist movement at all. So we have the same problem,” she said.Suu Kyi said the Myanmar government had tried to provide security to all those residing in the country.“We have to take care of our citizens. We have to take care of everybody who is in our country whether or not they are our citizens. It is our duty and we try our best,” she said.Suu Kyi is under mounting international pressure to stop the alleged atrocities against the Rohingyas, who are even denied citizenship in Myanmar.Thousands of Rohingyas are crossing over to Bangladesh—where they are sparingly given refugee status—to escape from the violence in Rakhine state. Media reports quoted the UNHCR spokesperson in Bangladesh as saying that at least 123,000 Rohingyas have crossed over in the past few days.The latest exodus began on August 25, after Rohingya insurgents attacked police posts in Rakhine, leading to a violent offensive by the Myanmar army.India also faces the problem of Rohingyas fleeing into the states bordering Myanmar.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said after his talks with Suu Kyi on Wednesday that India shared Myanmar’s concerns over the situation in Rakhine state and the loss of lives of security personnel and innocent people in the violence blamed on insurgents from the minority community.Modi hoped that whether in the peace process or resolving a “specific problem”, all stakeholders worked together to find a solution to ensure peace, justice and dignity for all by respecting the unity and territorial integrity of Myanmar.last_img read more
