European football once again showed its public frustration with FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Wednesday at the World Cup – this time in Denmark’s camp.

Denmark has pledged not to vote for Infantino, who is running unopposed for re-election in March. Danish Football Association president Jesper Møller has also hinted that he wants to withdraw from FIFA membership.

“I thought about it,” Møller told Danish media in Qatar. “I imagine there could be challenges if Denmark withdraws on their own. But let’s see if we can’t have a dialogue. Denmark’s problems with the FIFA president predate the World Cup,” Møller said, member of the UEFA executive committee, but tensions with Europe have intensified in recent days.

Infantino used a press conference on the eve of the tournament to chastise European society and media for what he called hypocrisy in their criticism of World Cup hosts Qatar.

FIFA’s threats to show captains yellow cards for wanting to wear an unauthorized armband as part of the ‘One Love’ anti-discrimination campaign sent seven European teams down on Monday hours before three were due to play matches .

It was an unprecedented dispute at a World Cup pitting FIFA against players on the day of preparation for one of the biggest matches of their careers.

At the German camp, officials said on Tuesday they were considering taking legal action against FIFA’s tactics in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The court said no appeal has yet been filed.

“We have to respond to it,” Møller said. ”We will get there with the other countries. We’re in this together.” Denmark also annoyed FIFA and Qatar with a team shirt design that drew attention to dissatisfaction with the host country’s human rights record. man and treatment of migrant workers The team has a third option of a black jersey, chosen as the “mourning color” for workers who died in Qatar.

During Denmark’s opener on Tuesday, former Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt wore a rainbow armband to protest Qatar’s record on LGBTQ rights. Møller and Infantino also attended the match, which ended in a 0–0 draw.

Infantino claimed over the weekend that he was backed by more than 200 of FIFA’s 211 member federations to stand for re-election. Denmark and Germany have publicly declared that they will not vote for him.

The deadline for candidates was Nov. 16, days before members meet in Doha on Sunday, and no rival provided the five valid pledges of support required to run. The election meeting is March 16 in Kigali, Rwanda.

Infantino was a longtime member of UEFA staff and became its general secretary when he was elected in 2016 to head FIFA. His presidency saw several disputes with former European colleagues over football policy issues and he lived in Qatar before the World Cup while working more closely with Africa.

Alex Hales reprimanded by CDC for old ‘blackface’ photo Thu, 17 Nov 2022 05:37:43 +0000

England striker Alex Hales has been reprimanded by the Cricket Disciplinary Committee (CDC) for an old photo of him wearing a ‘black face’, which was published in a national newspaper last year. Hales had issued a public apology when the photo was published by The Sun last year. According to Sky Sports, the image was apparently taken in 2009 when the hitter was 20 at a New Years Eve party.

According to ESPNCricinfo, during the investigation, Hales questioned the need for “repeated publication of these old questions”, but arbitrator Chris Tickle ruled that “the interests of transparency should prevail”. According to the Cricket Council of England and Wales, the CDC is a body operating at arm’s length from the council and hears disciplinary cases in the domestic professional game in England and Wales.

In August this year, Hales was charged with breaching ECB Directive 3.3, which states: “No such person shall conduct himself in a manner or do any act or omission which might be detrimental to the interests of the cricket or which might bring the game of cricket or any cricketer or group of cricketers into disrepute.” Hales acknowledged the charge and told the CDC he had taken steps “to ensure that the photo could not be linked to any of his social media accounts” in 2015 and 2017.

According to the CDC report, the ECB argued that Hales’ breaches of its guidelines in 2018, primarily relating to the 2017 street fight in Bristol, should be considered “an aggravating factor”, but Tickle was not d ‘OK. “None of these offenses were related to discriminatory behavior,” he wrote. “They were totally different. Plus, they happened about eight years after the breach in this case. It would be different if it was a repeat offense, with Hales not having learned his lesson. In time of the events – 2009 – he had no criminal record, it was his first offense and should be treated as such.

The hitter has already been investigated, warned by his county of Nottinghamshire and he questioned the need for “more airtime” on the subject, according to the CDC report. “I have taken this into account but consider that the interests of transparency must prevail,” Tickle wrote. “I order this decision to be released to emphasize that such a social media post, historic as it is, will not be tolerated,” he added.

According to Sky Sports, prior to his recall for the series against Pakistan and the T20 World Cup this year, Hales had not played for England since 2019 due to off-field issues. He had tested positive for recreational drugs ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup, leading to his omission from the squad and a ‘complete breakdown of trust’ with then-white ball captain Eoin Morgan . Hales must have watched England lift their first-ever World Cup aged 50 from the touchline. However, the burly hitter was recalled to the T20I national team for the Pakistan Series and T20 WC in September, replacing an injured Jonny Bairstow. Also, with Jason Roy overlooked due to his long stint with the bat, Hales’ buyout offer thinned out.

The hitter repaid the trust the selectors placed in him, scoring 53 on his return. Since then, Hales has played 15 T20Is for England in 2022, having scored 430 runs at an average of 30.71 and a strike rate of 145.27. He produced four half-centuries, his best being an unbeaten 86 against India in the T20 World Cup semi-finals. In the tournament, the Englishman produced some great shots. In six games, he totaled 212 carries at an average of 42.20. He scored two 50s, with a best of 86* against India. He finished as the tournament’s eighth-best run-getter. Hales was England’s second best run-getter in the tournament behind Jos Buttler (225 runs). (ANI)

Kuol, on his way to the FIFA World Cup, ‘deadly’, says Mariners coach Montgomery Mon, 14 Nov 2022 06:53:46 +0000

Central Coast Mariners coach Nick Montgomery has branded Australian teenager Garang Kuol on his way to the World Cup “deadly” as the striker netted a brace against Macarthur FC. The 18-year-old, the youngest member of the Socceroos squad heading to Qatar, scored twice to raise the Mariners level to 10 against Dwight Yorke’s side but a late goal from Jed Drew earned him the Bulls a 3-2 win that moves them to fourth in the standings.

But it was Kuol’s performance that was the main talking point as the youngster once pointed out why Australia manager Graham Arnold included him in his 26-man squad for this month’s final . “We know in key moments he’s lethal and from that angle that finish is why he’s going to the World Cup and that’s why Graham Arnold… chose him over everyone else because that’s what he can produce,” Montgomery said.

Kuol hasn’t allowed the lack of a first professional start to stop him on a rapid rise, with the striker having already signed a contract to join English Premier League side Newcastle United in January. Montgomery introduced Kuol from the bench in the 55th minute and 10 minutes later struck from the penalty spot after drawing the foul himself to halve the deficit.

It was his second goal seven minutes later, however, that sent the pulse racing as Kuol smashed an unstoppable right-footed shot that exploded over goalkeeper Nick Suman from a sharp angle. Kuol’s interference was in vain, however, as Drew scored on the break five minutes into added time to defeat a Mariners side who had played with 10 men since Brian Kaltak was sent off in the 30th minute.

“(Garang) single-handedly changed the game for them,” said former Manchester United striker Yorke. “He’s been doing it for the last two games and you can see why he’s an exciting talent. He probably doesn’t deserve to lose the game today, but we needed the three points and I’m delighted.”

Football-Arsenal top Europa League group, Man United face playoffs Thu, 03 Nov 2022 22:11:32 +0000

Kieran Tierney’s first-half goal secured a 1-0 home win for Arsenal against FC Zurich and top spot in Europa League Group A on Thursday, but Manchester United could only finish second in their chicken and will participate in the February playoffs.

Arsenal’s superb 25-yard strike from Tierney won in a game they largely dominated but they had to resist pressure from the Swiss side at the end to finish with 15 points, two ahead of second-placed PSV Eindhoven. Argentina teenager Alejandro Garnacho scored in United’s 1-0 win over Real Sociedad but it wasn’t enough to knock the Spanish side from top of Group E and Erik ten Hag’s men had to settle for second place on goal difference.

The eight group winners advance to the last 16 while the runners-up face off in the playoffs where they face the teams who finished third in their Champions League groups, with potential opponents such as Ajax Amsterdam , Barcelona and Juventus. The draw for the next stage will take place on Monday. Arsenal missed many chances to double their lead and came close to paying.

Gabriel Jesus unintentionally fended off a goal-bound shot from team-mate Fabio Vieira when he hit him from yards out and goalkeeper Yanick Brecher was beaten. Zürich had the ball in the back of the net from a rare second-half foray, but Adrian Guerrero was flagged offside, and they squandered a number of late chances to snatch a draw.

An own goal from Alfons Sampsted and a strike from Johan Bakayoko saw PSV win 2-1 against Bodo/Glimt who finished third in the pool.

Sonic Frontiers Dev pushes back against Breath of the Wild comparisons Mon, 31 Oct 2022 20:59:00 +0000

Sonic Team leader Takashi Iizuka recorded distance attempts sound borders comparisons to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. There’s just over a week to go until Sonic finally takes the plunge into open-world gameplay, so it’s understandable that Iizuka wants to make sure the game is its own thing rather than just trying to monkey breath of the wildis success.

Comparisons to this game have been made since sound borders It was first rumored to be open-world, with those early rumors claiming it was inspired by Nintendo’s 2017 flagship classic. That certainly didn’t help dispel that notion when the game was finally unveiled emphasizing a vast grassy environment with an aura of mystery, which would not seem out of place in breath of the wildis the verdant, ancient version of Hyrule. Other things revealed since have also invited comparisons, like Borders‘ The creatures of Koco that reminded fans breath of the wildit is Koroks.


RELATED: Sonic Frontiers Preview Shows Similar Cyberspace Level to Sonic Adventure 2

Despite these superficial similarities, Iizuka told Shacknews in an interview that sound borders is a very different beast breath of the wild. He said the development team viewed it primarily as an action game, while in their view breath of the wild is a role-playing game. While the two can both sport gameplay that emphasizes freedom in their designs, Iizuka said Nintendo’s game is “not at all similar” to Sonic Team’s.

In a way, he pointed out that it differs from breath of the wild is the emphasis on what Sega called the “open area” design instead of the “open world.” While players will be free to explore each of the Starfall islands at their leisure, the order in which they unlock the islands appears to be more linear. It’s a notable departure from the traditional open-world experience, where the entire map is accessible from the start, but given that Sonic’s gameplay has almost always revolved around speed towards an objective, the linear structure can be a good way to preserve this concentration in a more open environment.

Other differences also emerged from the perspective of sound borders‘ launch, as well as its fight. Whereas breath of the wild often empowers players to use the environment to defeat enemies, Borders it looks like its variety will come from unlocking new attacks for Sonic through a new skill tree system. The game also looks set to stand out with the colossal bosses that players can find in open areas, which breath of the wild was missing but could possibly use in its sequel tears of the kingdom.

With the popularity of the last main line Zelda is, and how crowded the open-world market has become, it’s no surprise that many new games have been compared to breath of the wild. sound borders is no exception, but luckily fans don’t have to wait any longer to see if it’s able to forge a unique identity while delivering a memorable open-world experience.

sound borders launches November 8 on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

]]> Pet Ordinance Update + Off-Leash Program + NUTmobile Fri, 28 Oct 2022 23:32:37 +0000

Hello Friday. Gretchen Parsons here with your news of the day.

Hello. Two Boise parks will allow dogs to walk off-leash starting next week, we have the details. Plus, an update on the Ada County Animal Control Ordinance.

  • Today: 57° 🌤 Partly sunny.
  • Weekend: This weekend promises to be partly sunny with highs of 57° on Saturday and 58° on Sunday.

First place today

Update: Changes to the Ada County Animal Control Ordinance

Earlier this week we informed readers that Ada County was reworking its animal control ordinance and this morning we have an update.

Margaret Carmel attended a meeting with county commissioners and the Idaho Humane Society and got the details of the updated version.

One of the key elements is defining what constitutes a dangerous dog. Current law states that any dog ​​that approaches someone with “an apparent attacking attitude” may be classified by the Idaho Humane Society as dangerous, which then leads to the dog’s euthanasia. The proposed new rules define dangerous dogs as an animal that has bitten another dog or a person. If a bite does occur and is reported, the owner can either go through state court proceedings or an administrative hearing through the Idaho Humane Society, depending on the nature of the injury.

At the hearing, the circumstances of the attack, the nature of the dog, past incidents and whether the bite was provoked will be discussed before a decision is made. The new ordinance proposes to allow dangerous dogs to be kept in Ada County, provided they follow certain regulations and are subject to regular inspections. This could include posting danger signs for dogs, muzzling on walks, locked doors, and other requirements to prevent the dog from harming others. If a homeowner doesn’t like the ruling, they can appeal to Ada County through the court system for a second opinion under the new ordinance.

Ada County plans to continue public education about the ordinance before making a final decision Nov. 29.

You can read a more in-depth version of this story, including other changes to the ordinance, on BoiseDev.

Soccer-Dortmund draw 0-0 with Manchester City to join them in knockout stage Tue, 25 Oct 2022 21:50:35 +0000

Borussia Dortmund drew 0-0 with already qualified Manchester City on Tuesday to book their place in the Champions League knockout stage with one game to spare.

The result saw City, who missed a second-half penalty and have 11 points, top Group G while Dortmund, out of eight, clinched the second qualifying ticket, locking in second place ahead of Sevilla, third, who has five points. “We played much better in the second half. In the first half we conceded a few balls and lost a few counter-attacks,” said City coach Pep Guardiola.

“Since I’ve been here we’ve missed 24 or 25 penalties, it’s too many. You always have to admire courage, but missing so many penalties is a problem. We have to improve.” this competition and these situations can make the difference,” he added.

The Germans, who needed a point to advance, got off to a good start with Karim Adeyemi causing serious speed problems on the right wing. The Germany international netted an early shot on goal, testing City keeper Stefan Ortega on his first appearance.

Gio Reyna came close in the 25th minute with a low shot but it was unmarked Youssoufa Moukoko who should have scored a bit later but instead missed his best chance from six yards out. In an unremarkable return to Dortmund where he had scored 86 goals in 89 appearances until his departure in June, City top scorer Erling Haaland was completely ruled out by defender Mats Hummels in the first half.

The English champions failed to manage a single shot on target and the Norwegian was taken off at half-time. “Erling had a bit of a fever before the game, Joao Cancelo too. They were tired so we made some changes,” Guardiola said.

They could have taken the lead when Riyad Mahrez was knocked down in the box. The Algerian, who also missed a shot on goal the previous day against FC Copenhagen, was beaten by Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel, who chose the right corner to fend off his shot.

Kobel also did well to save Julian Alvarez’s shot in the 67th minute in what turned out to be City’s first and only chance in open play. “We finally rewarded ourselves against City with the point today,” said Dortmund coach Edin Terzic. “We played a very good first half. Rarely have I seen a City game where they had so few chances.”

Sevilla, third with five points, will continue in the Europa League after beating Copenhagen 10 3-0 earlier on Tuesday.

Football-Poland in a “very difficult” World Cup group, according to Lewandowski Fri, 21 Oct 2022 18:02:52 +0000

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski said they faced a tough group alongside Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia at the World Cup in Qatar, but he believes they can improve. The Polish side failed to get out of their group four years ago in Russia and Barcelona striker Lewandowski is keen to avoid a similar outcome.

“The pressure that comes with the expectations of our fans and the nation as a whole is enormous and I am well aware of that. I need and want to feel motivated to show them what I can do on the football pitch,” Lewandowski told the FIFA website. “Although it’s not always easy, I don’t want to complain about it. I always have to find a solution and try to give my best.”

The 34-year-old said Argentina are one of the favorites to win the title and Mexico are always dangerous at major tournaments. “With an absolute legend like Leo Messi as the figurehead, there is no doubt that this will be our toughest game. It will be great to face such a great team with such talented players,” added Lewandowski.

“Mexico fight until the final whistle and never give up. They have a combination of youth and experience, and we are well aware of that.” Lewandowski, who scored nine times in qualifying, will be Poland’s main attacking threat, but the former Bayern Munich leader says his game is not just about goals.

“A lot of people look at my stats and assume that if I score I played well, and if not I played badly, but I’m well aware that’s not the case. not always the case. That doesn’t worry me.” he added. Poland kicked off their campaign against Mexico on November 22 before facing Saudi Arabia four days later and Argentina on November 30.
