EFL to Play 113 Championship Games in 56 Days

first_imgFootball League clubs have been advised by the EFL to give their players a holiday and not to return to training until 16 May at the earliest, with the aim of restarting the season in June and completing the outstanding 341 fixtures, including play-offs, across 56 days. That would mean, for example, squeezing 113 Championship matches into an eight-week period.The plan was outlined by the league’s chairman, Rick Parry, in a letter to clubs following an EFL board meeting on Wednesday. The caveat is that the EFL will continue to listen to government advice, which could scupper the proposals.The Premier League is understood to have not yet issued any similar explicit guidance to its clubs on potential dates for restarting and completing the season. But when the suspension of the season was extended to 30 April that was done primarily to give players a break from having to constantly train. The league and its clubs are therefore hoping, similarly to the EFL, that subject to government advice they may resume training in May and potentially be playing matches again in June. Parry advised Championship, League One and League Two clubs in his letter not to return to training until mid-May, acknowledging that they are dealing with “testing circumstances”. The letter was designed to provide clubs with some clarity amid the coronavirus pandemic. EFL matches are postponed indefinitely and are expected to return behind closed doors.Parry said: “Whenever the decision is taken that it is safe to resume, we currently estimate that the league will require approximately 56 days to complete the outstanding matches in the season, including play-offs and we are committed to ensuring that clubs are provided with an appropriate notice period to ensure they are able to prepare operationally given the scale and impact of the postponements.”The EFL’s thinking is based on teams playing twice a week – in midweek and at the weekend – over at least a five-week period. Championship teams each have nine matches to play, while some clubs in League One and League Two have 10 remaining games.The EFL said it hoped two-leg play-off semi-finals would be played as normal but no decision had been taken on a venue for the finals. The Championship final is expected to take place before the other two, and the league is confident the second-tier season could be completed inside 50 days. “No decision has been taken on the likely venue as it will depend on the circumstances at play at the time,” Parry said.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Pique Plays Down Barcelona, Madrid Rivalry; Confirms WhatsApp Group

first_imgBarcelona defender Gerard Pique has played down the rivalry between his teammates and Real Madrid players.He also disclosed that he speaks to Real Madrid’s Spanish players on a WhatsApp groupPique was speaking on his Players’ Tribune blog which was posted on ThursdayIn his words, Pique said: “I’m going to let you in on a little inside information. Everybody knows that footballers have text groups on WhatsApp. I have one just for my friends from home, and I have another just for my Barca team-mates.”“But my favourite one might surprise you. Earlier this season, when we were already eight or nine points clear of Real Madrid in the league, I started a special group for some of the guys on the Spanish national team who play for Real Madrid and Barcelona.“If you only read what the media says, you would think that we hate one another. But, in fact, we all get along really well, and we text back and forth about tactics and football philosophies and even the books we’re reading.“It’s the best. We’re just like little kids. And the truth is, it’s especially hilarious for me right now, because now we’re up 15 points on Real in the league. So I’m getting very creative in my responses.” he added.Speaking further, the former Manchester United defender: “Last season, when the Real guys were winning everything, they were feeling pretty good. They were talking s**t constantly whenever I saw them at national team training.“Man, every time they won a match last season, they were posting shirtless photos on Instagram from the locker room. Remember that?“They were smiling and flexing their muscles like The Rock and saying #HalaMadrid and posting little trophy emojis. This season, though, it’s a different vibe. All their Instagram photos are looking very somber. “3 points today. We must keep working harder!”“So I’m texting them in the WhatsApp group, “Come on guys, why so serious?!” Then I put a little crying emoji, and a laughing emoji. I even made a special name for the group. It’s called: CONGRATULATIONS.” he concluded.RelatedPique Extends Barcelona Contract Until 2022January 30, 2018In “Europe”Gerard Pique Makes Bold Barcelona ClaimFebruary 28, 2019In “Europe”Gerard Pique Offers To Leave Barca Following “Humiliating” Bayern DefeatAugust 15, 2020In “Europe”last_img read more

Storms erode Bering Sea ice pack caution is urged

first_imgSea ice near Nome. (Photo: Zoe Grueskin, KNOM)Winter storms and blustery weather currently buffeting the Bering Sea have caused sea ice coverage to be reduced by almost 25% since late January. That’s according to climate specialist Rick Thoman.Thoman works for the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) at the University of Alaska–Fairbanks. He says in the last two weeks, more areas of open water have popped up all around Western Alaska.“As of February 10th, we are seeing significant areas of open water throughout the Southern Norton Sound, as well as areas on the north side of St. Lawrence Island and even on the south coast of Chukotka, west of Provideniya,” Thoman said. “Even in areas where there is still ice, (there is) a lot of mobile ice now throughout the region.”The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings for multiple zones within Western Alaska over the last few days, including St. Lawrence Island, the Norton Sound coast near Nome, and Unalakleet. Thoman says due to these weather conditions, it could take some of the affected areas longer to re-form their sea ice than the Southern Seward Peninsula Coast will.“If we get through this storm that is in progress currently with decent ice conditions, then we are probably okay,” Thoman said. “But it looks like a different situation in Eastern Norton Sound, where there is much less ice, and that’s going to take quite a while to form. Might not be much happening as far as crabbing in those areas, same with hunting out on the ice for the Bering Strait communities.”Thoman adds that in Shishmaref, variable ice conditions could make subsistence hunting on the ice very challenging for the rest of February.Gay Sheffield works for the marine mammal advisory program, alongside many whaling communities and hunters in the Bering Strait region. In terms of how subsistence hunting could be impacted by the current sea ice conditions, Sheffield says:“It’s safe to say our resourceful harvesting communities will take advantage of any conditions… open water isn’t necessarily a bad thing,” Sheffield said.Looking further north, Thoman says subsistence hunters will have to work around open water, a lack of thick sea ice, and mobile ice ridging together.“Even southern Kotzebue Sound is seeing some open water, as well, and that is really surprising,” Thoman said. “That water is much shallower, and that ice ought to be thoroughly stable here by the time we get to the middle of February — but not this year.”For residents of Nome and other Bering Strait communities, Thoman recommends waiting for the storm to pass before going back on the sea ice.“Certainly, if it’s possible, (you) might not want to be out on the ice over the next couple of days until this storm blows through and we see things start to settle down,” Thoman said. “We will have a couple of days of colder, not-so-stormy weather coming up, so while we might not see much in the way of sea ice growth, (we) should see things stabilize at least a little bit.”As sea ice extent changes dramatically in the Bering Sea, Thoman says it is always helpful to be vigilant and to report your observations. If you’re willing to share that information with Thoman or other weather observers, contact the local environmental network (LEO).last_img read more

Video Tomato ancestor evolved 50 million years ago near Antarctica

first_imgThe tomato on your sandwich traces its history to a plant that evolved near Antarctica more than 50 million years ago, according to a study published today in Science. Researchers found two fossils compressed into 52.2-million-year-old Patagonian stone, which showcased the flattened silhouettes of ancient lantern fruit. The remains resemble modern-day members of the Solanaceae or nightshade family, which includes tomatoes, potatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, and tobacco. The fossils looked like two unique nightshade relatives in particular: ground cherries and tomatillos (the stuff salsa verde is made of), both of which are veiled in a papery husk. Veins of the husk are visibly detailed on the fossils, and scientists were even able to identify compacted remnants of the berry, which turned to coal during the fossilization process. At the time the plant—now christened Physalis infinemundi—thrived, South America would have been close to Antarctica and Australia during the ancient supercontinent Gondwana’s final stages of separation. Today, the site where the fossils were found, Laguna del Hunco in Argentina, is dry and desolate, but in the Eocene epoch (56 million to 33.9 million years ago), the area was near the shore of a caldera lake and had a much more tropical climate. Because of the lakeside locale, researchers suspect that the inflated husk could have served as a flotation device.last_img read more
