Jürgen Klopp decided not to use three of his key players in the Merseyside derby as Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Roberto Firmino were not included into the starting eleven and the coach explained why.After the starting eleven had been revealed, the Liverpool fans started to worry about the fitness of their team’s crucial players but Jürgen Klopp insisted that he expects them all to be back for the match against City.The German coach spoke about the absence of this trio as he said that all of them will be available for the next game against Manchester City, according to Talk Sport:Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“Mo, he’s injured. I don’t think it is really serious and he can be available for Tuesday but for today he wasn’t available.“It’s the same with Andy Robertson.“Bobby’s out, he’s played a lot of games for us obviously and we have two fresh strikers there.”
Rangers defender Connor Goldson insists the team must improve their performances if they’re to defeat Hibernian.The former Brighton & Hove Albion says there can be no repeat of the team’s first-half display against St Johnstone if they’re to secure all three points on Boxing Day at the Ibrox Stadium.Steven Gerrard’s men struggled in the opening 45 minutes of the game against St. Johnstone and found themselves trailing before a brace from Alfredo Morelos turned the game on its head.It’s the second game between the two teams in the space of seven days following the goalless draw at Easter Road on Wednesday, and Goldson explained, according to the club’s official website: Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“They are a good side, and we showed them respect going there by the way we set up and we had a game plan of playing on the counter attack.”“I think it worked really well but we missed quite a few chances which was a bit frustrating as we had a good chance of winning the game.”“But, at the same time, we know they are dangerous, they can hurt us and they have good players. We know we are going to have to be at it and we can’t put in a performance like the first half yesterday.”“But if we put in a performance like the second, we will have a good chance of getting the result we want.”
Everton winger Ademola Lookman insists everyone has a different scenario and, therefore, can’t be guaranteed to emulate the successes of others in the BundesligaThe 21-year-old spent the latter part of last season on loan at RB Leipzig and impressed with five goals and four assists in 11 Bundesliga appearances.Since then, the likes of English youngsters Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson have starred in the German top flight at Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.While, Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola confirmed Bayern Munich’s strong interest in young star Callum Hudson-Odoi.“Everyone’s scenario is different, all our situations are different,” said Lookman, according to Liverpool Echo.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“So I think it is about the experience because wherever you go you can say you are going to play, but you have to prove it.“It is for experience, learning new football, learning a new style, just being around it.“It was different football [in Germany], but I wouldn’t say it was daunting. It was just another experience, take it in your stride and get used to it.”Since returning to Everton for this season, Lookman has made just the one start in 11 Premier League appearances.

BTRCThe Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) on Thursday directed all International Internet Gateways (IIG) to shut down another 1279 pornographic websites, reports UNB.”IIG already has started shutting down various kinds of porn sites following the order of the BTRC,” said Emdadul Haque, general secretary of Internet Service Providers Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).He also said, “We welcome the government initiative to keep internet safe through shutting down porn sites. This will help to keep internet service safe.”This is the regulatory body’s third move within two weeks as it ordered the International Internet Gateway (IIG) on 6 Feb to shut 244 porn sites and on 8 Feb to close 1300 others.Earlier in November 2016, the High Court directed the government to take initiative to block pornography websites and following the order, BTRC had blocked about five hundred such sites at that time.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Feb. 25 announced she has joined with the Fuel Fund of Maryland and Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) to help local homeless persons overcome a major obstacle to permanent housing—overdue (BGE) bills. The mayor unveiled the Power of Home, a Fuel Fund program to address unpaid utility bills that block the move from a homeless shelter into permanent housing. Overdue utility bills are frequently part of the cascade of calamities that result in homelessness, according to homeless advocates. “The Power of Home is another step in the right direction toward making homelessness rare and brief in Baltimore,” Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference. “Taking practical steps like resolving past-due utility bills removes a huge barrier that keeps too many families from transitioning from a shelter to permanent housing.” The Journey Home, the mayor’s initiative to end homelessness, is contributing $5,000 to the Power of Home to the effort to clear up unpaid utility bills. BGE is providing $20,000 in bill credits and the Weinberg Foundation is donating $20,000 toward the cause. The mayor said, “This is a powerful example of the Baltimore community coming together to assist our most vulnerable residents.” In data underscoring this winter’s brutal toll on ratepayers, Power of Home officials said one-third of the non-profit’s clients average outstanding BGE debt of $1,268, with some outstanding bills exceeding $5,000. Baltimore Gas and Electric Senior Vice President for regulatory and external affairs Calvin G. Butler Jr. said during the news conference, “at BGE, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work and are pleased to be a part of the tremendous work being done by the Baltimore City Journey Home campaign.” Butler said last fall he heard, first-hand, success stories of city residents who made their way out of homelessness. “I couldn’t help being moved by the strength and determination these individuals displayed to overcome the tough breaks that life can sometimes send our way.” “When those who have endured homelessness are able to take the steps needed to put a roof over their heads, BGE is pleased to support them in their efforts by providing bill credits to these individuals, through The Power of Home program, to help them in their efforts to get their families into a new home,” Butler said.
The focus will always be on-the-ground coverage, not news analysis, he added. “Viewers want to be shown, not told, what’s happening in the world.”ABC News Live is going to be exclusively available via the Roku Channel at launch, but Smith said that the programming may also show up on the ABC News website during breaking news events. He declined to comment on other over-the-top opportunities for the new online news network.Roku first launched its Roku channel as an ad-supported VOD service on its own streaming devices and Roku TVs in September. Since then, the channel has become the third-most-popular ad-supported channel on Roku’s platform, thanks to free movies and TV shows from studios like Lionsgate, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Bros.ABC News Digital is the first live feed to launch on the Roku Channel, but it won’t remain the only one: The set-top box maker also struck partnerships with upstart news network Cheddar, People TV and Newsy to carry their live feeds on the channel. People TV and Newsy in particular will include a lot of pre-programmed content as a linear feed, something that could prove popular with viewers who want to watch internet TV in a more lean-back fashion. “There is value in that linear schedule,” agreed Holmes.The on-demand catalog of the Roku channel has grown from around 500 movies and TV show episodes to over 1000 such videos since its launch a little over half a year ago. Holmes said that the company plans to add more content in the coming months, but that it still wanted to keep the channel curated. That’s why the company is also set to add a new collections feature to the Roku Channel, which is supposed to help consumers get to things like action flicks across a variety of genres and sources more easily.The company plans to roll out these new collections, as well as live news programming, on the Roku Channel when it launches the next version of the Roku smart TV OS next month. Roku previously announced plans to also bring the Roku Channel to Samsung Smart TVs this summer. Adding live news programming, as well as extending the reach of the Roku Channel, is one way Roku is growing the amount of ad-supported viewing on its platform. Although it is primarily known for its streaming devices, Roku’s business is squarely focused on monetizing its audience through advertising. The company is selling all of the ads for the Roku Channel, including those shown on ABC News Live, but Holmes said that the network retained full editorial control over the placement of its ad breaks. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

In addition, Roku is also going to add live linear channels from Cheddar, People TV and Newsy to the ad-supported channel. “It’s a lot like a CNN moment for OTT,” said Roku’s vice president of programming during a briefing with Variety.The new channel, which will at launch only be available on Roku’s ad-supported Roku channel, will feature 24/7 programming, including breaking news and live event coverage. The channel will rely heavily on ABC News’ worldwide network of correspondents, and carry the same programming as ABC’s broadcast network during breaking news events.Live feeds from by ABC News correspondents will be complemented by verified and curated live video feeds from social media, put in context by hosts that are supposed to act more like navigators than traditional news anchors. “That footage is entirely raw, entirely unfiltered,” said ABC News Digital vice president Colby Smith. “Our ambition here is not to recreate cable news for Roku.” Popular on Variety
