There are reports Jose Mourinho has a week to save his job as Chelsea manager beginning with the League Cup clash against Stoke and the Premier League visit of Liverpool on Saturday.But if the who could replace him immediately if he does go? Here, talkSPORT looks at the latest news surrounding the Portuguese’s future.REHIRE ANCELOTTIFew top class managers are out of work right now, but the Italian is one of them. Carlo Ancelotti won the Premier League and FA Cup in 2010 before losing his job the following season and has expressed an interest in returning to England’s top flight.SHORT TERM OPTION IN HIDDINKDutchman Guus Hiddink is out of work and has been linked with the club he managed in a short term capacity before, when he won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2009.ANCELOTTI THINKS MOURINHO WILL GET IT RIGHTSpeaking in Italy, Ancelotti has backed Mourinho to pull Chelsea out of the crisis they find themselves in. “Last year they won by a mile, now they are more relaxed. Don’t worry, Mourinho will sort it out. He is the right man,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.GUARDIOLA ATTRACTED TO LONDON JOBChelsea owner Roman Abramovich tried to persuade Pep Guardiola to take the Chelsea job in 2013 before the successful Spaniard moved to Munich. His contract at Bayern expires at the end of the season with no new one agreed and the Telegraph report Abramovich’s minions are working behind the scenes to sound Guardiola out about the possibility of taking over should Mourinho lose his job. The Mail, meanwhile, are reporting the Bayern boss is keen on a move to London and has told friends as much.GUARDIOLA AND SIMEONE ON THE WISH-LISTThe London Evening Standard claim that both Guardiola and Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone are the top candidates wanted by Abramovich. Spanish-based journalist Graham Hunter has spoken, in the Mail, of similarities between the latter and Mourinho, while pointing out that Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao and Thibaut Courtois all played and enjoyed success under Simeone. 2 MONACO INTERESTED IN MOURINHOAlessandro Proto, a shareholder at the Ligue 1 club, told Spanish newspaper Sport: “On Saturday night the first contact was made with Jose Mourinho about training Monaco.”last_img read more

first_img Arsenal star Theo Walcott 1 On January 20, 2006, precocious 16-year-old talent Theo Walcott swapped Southampton for Arsenal in a deal worth £9.1million.The England forward has enjoyed plenty of ups and endured quite a few downs too throughout his career with injuries disrupting his development.Ten years on, Walcott, now 26, has played 326 times for the Gunners, scored 81 goals and made 76 assists, while flitting between roles as a winger and as a central striker.But having only won one FA Cup in 2015 (Walcott was injured for the 2014 victory over Hull City) it’s debatable just how successful the speedy star has really been.So, we asked our Twitter followers what you made of the player’s career, and you didn’t hold back in the debate.You can see some of the best tweets below…last_img read more

first_img“Overall, I don’t think there’s any doubt that HPV testing has a lot of advantages over the Pap test,” she said. Saslow said there are still issues to be resolved, and federal approval needed, but “it’s definitely coming.” She said experts expect that to happen sometime in the next decade. A Swedish study also in the journal compared Pap with HPV testing to Pap alone in 12,527 women in their 30s. They found the combo test detected precancerous lesions or cancer earlier than the Pap test alone. The Canadian study, which was government-funded, included 10,154 women ages 30 to 69 in Montreal and St. John’s, Newfoundland.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Franco said some feared the HPV test would result in more false alarms, causing anxiety and requiring more follow-up testing. In the study, there were only slightly more false positives for the HPV tests (6 percent) than the Pap smears (3 percent). HPV, or human papilloma virus, is a common sexually transmitted disease. Infections are mostly in young women and most go away on their own. The HPV test looks for the high-risk viruses that can cause cervical cancer if the infection persists. Like the Pap, it uses cells scraped from the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. Because the Pap test misses about half of the cases, doctors use frequent testing to catch the slow developing cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages. The HPV test has been available in the U.S. since 2000 and was first used for inconclusive Pap tests. Now women older than 30 can get a HPV test – but only along with a Pap – and wait three years to be tested again if both tests are negative. More recently, scientists have been studying whether the HPV test can be used alone and whether it can prolong the intervals between exams. Debbie Saslow, director of breast and gynecologic cancer for the American Cancer Society, said evidence from a number of studies supports using the HPV test in place of a Pap. NEW YORK – A relatively new screening test was about twice as accurate as the traditional Pap smear at spotting cervical cancer, according to the first rigorous study of the test in North America. The new test could replace the 50-year-old Pap in a matter of years, experts say. And there’s a bonus for women: They won’t need a screening test as often. The HPV test, which looks for the virus that causes cervical cancer, correctly spotted 95 percent of the cancers. The Pap test, which checks for abnormal cells under a microscope, only found 55 percent, according to researchers at McGill University in Montreal, who published their findings in the New England Journal of Medicine. “We’ve had the Pap test for over 50 years and it’s high time it be replaced by technology that’s more robust,” said Eduardo Franco, director of McGill’s division of cancer epidemiology, who led the study. last_img read more

CASTAIC — An out-of-control wildfire whipped up by 50-mph winds consumed about 500 acres early Sunday amid dry conditions in northeast Los Angeles County, authorities said. The fire broke out late Saturday in the hills west of the Golden State Freeway in the Angeles National Forest, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Jason Hurd. The blaze burned a shed but no homes were immediately threatened and the fire was burning toward the southwest away from the freeway, authorities said. Fire officials were focused on protecting Piru, a Ventura County town of 1,200 people about 5 miles to the west and across a small lake from the blaze. A condor preserve was also potentially threatened. “There could be homes threatened by the end of the day Sunday if the fire continues to push to the south and southwest,” U.S. Forest Service spokesman Stanton Florea told KNX radio. L.A. County firefighters were assisting the Forest Service in battling the blaze, Hurd said. Wildfires were widely expected in Southern California over the weekend as hot weather and heavy Santa Ana winds marked the height of traditional wildfire season after one of the driest rain years on record. last_img read more

first_img 2 The Chelsea goalkeeper is currently on international duty with Belgium Courtois is away with Belgium preparing for Tuesday’s friendly against Portugal – a fixture which was switched to Leiria having initially been cancelled for security reasons in the wake of Tuesday’s Brussels terror attacks.And he believes he is training at a higher standard with his international colleagues than when with his club.“The level of training is higher among Devils,” he said. “There are only world-class players (here), while at Chelsea, there are some players a little less rated and we often train with youngsters as well.”Courtois is one of a host of Premier League-based Belgium stars to have suffered injury-plagued seasons, along with the likes of Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard, Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen and Manchester City pair Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne.And that is not something that has come as a surprise to the former Atletico Madrid loanee.“We have matches every three days, no winter break, there are many cup matches,” he said. “The pace is high and the contacts are tough.” 2 Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, while on international duty with Belgium, refused to give any assurances when quizzed about his long-term future.The London Evening Standard reported earlier this week that the 23-year-old is attracting interest from Real Madrid and the Blues were hoping to ward off interest with a £73m price tag.Speaking to Belgian broadcaster RTBF, however, Courtois admitted Chelsea’s unexpectedly troubled season had ‘changed’ him, and was diplomatic when asked if he would leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.Questioned if he will remain with Chelsea beyond the end of the season, the stopper crypitcally replied: “I do not say yes, I do not say no. I do not know: I still have three years on my contract. We must see what Chelsea want.“It is true that it (this season) has changed me. Until now I had always won a trophy every season. We hope that next season will be better.”Courtois, who missed three months of the campaign after undergoing knee surgery in September, insisted he has never doubted his ability even in testing times.“Especially mentally, you have to be strong,” said the former Genk stopper, whose sister and both parents have all played volleyball at a high level. “But with my character, and having grown up in a family of top athletes, I do not have too many problems with it. I never doubt.”last_img read more

first_img1 Patrick Roberts celebrates his goal Celtic put part-time Lincoln Red Imps in their place with a 3-0 Parkhead win that set up a Champions League third-round qualifying meeting with Astana.The Hoops had been embarrassed by a 1-0 defeat in last week’s first leg in Gibraltar, in what was new boss Brendan Rodgers’ first competitive game.However, Celtic burst out of the traps eager to get revenge and three first-half goals from defender Mikael Lustig, striker Leigh Griffiths and winger Patrick Roberts had the tie finished before the break, with the second half a mere formality.The Scottish champions will fly to Kazakhstan next week and while Astana, who booked their place in the next round with a last-gasp winner against Lithuanian side Zalgiris, will present a bigger challenge, Rodgers will be pleased with the way his side handled this potentially tricky match.Celtic fans were given a pre-match boost when Bobby Lennox, who played in the club’s European Cup final win over Inter Milan in 1967, and Rosemary Burns, wife of former Celtic player and manager Tommy Burns, helped unfurl the 2015-16 Premiership flag to raucous cheers.Rodgers’ attacking set up – Erik Sviatchenko was the only recognised centre-back – saw the visitors blitzed from the first whistle.It looked like the home side had been awarded a penalty in the ninth minute when midfielder Stuart Armstrong went down in the box after a trip by defender Ryan Casciaro but, after consulting with his assistant, referee Bartosz Frankowski gave a free-kick at the edge of the box which Griffiths blazed over.Midfielder Callum McGregor then cracked the bar with a deflected strike from 20 yards before he had a toe-poked effort from 12 yards pushed past the post by Imps keeper Raul Navas for another fruitless corner.The breakthrough was, however, inevitable and Lustig’s goal in the 23rd minute came when Lincoln failed to clear Armstrong’s curling free-kick into the packed box.Skipper Scott Brown was involved and when the ball fell to the Sweden full-back he turned and swept it into the net.The Gibraltarians’ resistance was shattered and three minutes later Griffiths drove in a second from the edge of the box after cutting in from the right.In the 29th minute the impressive Roberts worked a one-two with McGregor and curled the ball past Navas from 10 yards for number three with the keeper denying Celtic striker Moussa Dembele six minutes later.Lincoln would have welcomed the interval, but early in the second half striker Lee Casciaro, who scored in Gibraltar, almost notched again when he got behind Sviatchenko, only to screw his shot wide of the far post.The visitors were enjoying some possession for the first time in the match but it was Griffiths who should have scored in the 65th minute when he met Lustig’s pinpoint cross with his head, only to miss the target.The luckless Dembele did the same with an angled drive from a more difficult position before he was replaced by Nadir Ciftci – Kristoffer Ajer and Emilio Izaguirre had already come on as substitutes – before Sviatchenko headed a McGregor corner past the post.There was time for Navas to make a point-blank save from Griffiths, who then had the ball in the net only to be ruled offside, but by then it mattered little.last_img read more

Rayceana Racheal Rocha, 22, and Paul Harlen Meyercamp Jr., 26, entered their pleas before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Block. At one point, like a couple in love, Rocha and Meyercamp whispered to each other, looked into each other’s eyes and smiled.
