After he had hit the post and played a part in Ivan Rakitic’s second goal, Messi rounded off the commanding win.“Tonight (Messi) did score (against Buffon) because we left him too much space,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “(Messi) plays perfectly well in tight spaces, but today he had more space, and I would even say that we made it easier for him, leaving him so open.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

It’s true that he has to adapt to the team, to learn some tactical questions,” Valverde said. “We have to help him come along. He has just arrived, he is young, and he has a long career in front of him.”To pry Dembele away from Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona reinvested a large part of the world record 222 million euros ($262 million) it received from Paris Saint-Germain for Brazil star Neymar. It paid Dortmund 105 million euros ($124 million) in a deal that includes possible add-ons that could bring the total to 147 million euros (about $173 million).Juventus was without injured defender Giorgio Chiellini, forward Mario Mandzukic and midfielder Sami Khedira.

The 20-year-old France forward helped with a counterattack that caught the Juventus defense off-guard. Messi took the ball from Dembele, worked a quick one-two with Luis Suarez and then rolled a left-foot shot just inside the far post.Messi helped make it 2-0 in the 56th when his dangerous low cross was cleared by substitute Stefano Sturaro back to Rakitic, who fired it home.Messi got his second in the 69th when he took the ball on the right side and cut back to go around two defenders. He left Buffon with no chance against another left-foot strike that smacked into the lower corner of his net.As Barcelona’s coach Ernesto Valverde put it, “when Messi has the ball, anything can happen.”ADVERTISEMENT End of his agony?

Province outlines goals in effort to have world’s cleanest LNG facilities

first_img“New measures in every sector are going to help B.C. reach its long-term climate change goals in tandem with the build-out of the LNG industry. The province will be releasing its plans to achieve this in the coming months.” The province’s efforts include protecting the air and water in B.C., which according to Premier Christy Clark, is a priority for the ministry. This includes implementing a greenhouse gas emissions standard that is lower than any other LNG facility in the world; which will be achieved by flexible options for leading companies, including purchasing offsets and contributing to a technology fund.“British Columbia is taking another step in global environmental leadership – the cleanest LNG facilities in the world will help the largest GHG-emitting nations reduce their emissions, and improve their air and water quality,” Minister Polak said in a written statement. “The export of B.C. LNG is both an economic and an environmental opportunity for the province. As the cleanest-burning fossil fuel, natural gas is part of a global climate solution.”Based on what the province calls a review of leading jurisdictions, B.C. is also implementing new interim ambient air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide for all new and expanding industrial facilities that are consistent with the proposed benchmark.- Advertisement -“These objectives establish levels for emissions to the air to protect human health province-wide,” Minister Polak writes.”Minister Polak adds, “There is no point in establishing an LNG industry in B.C. if we can’t protect the environment – we want to enable safe development with great environmental standards. We have a proud heritage of developing the oil and gas industry in this province to world-leading standards. This pride and commitment to the environment guides us as we take this next, big step with LNG.”The province concludes by saying these actions and incentives alone do not end the need for climate action, and to that end, the provincial government is committed to working with industry to reduce emissions in the upstream.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDEAR LADS,Thank you – go raibh maith agaibh.It just didn’t go for us today. No amount of rubbish or hours of analysis by the pundits will explain it all. But what is clear is that every man on the Senior team and every boy on the Minor team gave their all today.And not just today; week in and week out for months on end; at nights, in early mornings – before and after work, through good days and bad, supported by wonderful families, clubs and communities.Jim McGuinness as manager and Michael Murphy as captain have led our county to another All Ireland Final.We were an inch away from a draw; without even playing very well today. There cannot be any scapegoats. It would be simply outrageous to pick one.To the fans we say, unless you’ve walked in their shoes, or worn those boots, you have no right.So thanks Jim, thanks Michael, and thanks lads.Hold your heads up high and be proud.We are.
