Netherlands Forster: Koeman would be fantastic for Netherlands Nicholas McGee Last updated 2 years ago 19:00 11/12/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Netherlands Everton Southampton Premier League The Southampton goalkeeper played under the Dutchman at St Mary’s, and believes he would be perfect for international management Ronald Koeman would be a fantastic choice as the next coach of Netherlands, according to Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster.Koeman is out of work having been sacked by Everton last month following a dismal start to the Premier League season, his exit sealed when a 5-2 defeat to Arsenal left them in the relegation zone.England 3/1 to beat Brazil Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A.

Cannery Pier Hotel, Oregon 7. Tree Bones Resort, Big Sur 8. Copper Beech Inn, Ivoryton Connecticut, 9 Best Fall Beers to Drink This Year, According to the Brewing Experts 9 Essential Kayak Fishing Accessories to Get You Started The Best Labor Day Deals on Outdoor Gear from REI, Backcountry, and More Editors’ Recommendations 9 Cocktails Recipes to Mix Up for National Rum Day What to Wear for Labor Day and the Unofficial End of Summer Here’s an “oh S$!*,” moment for you: Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year. And more, it’s a long weekend, should you happen to have President’s Day off that Monday the 17th. There’s no pressure to do anything special (that’s according to every girl we’ve asked) but since it is on a weekend, why wouldn’t you do something above and beyond (which is what they’re really thinking). So, here’s the deal—take advantage of the Hallmark enforced romance of the weekend of February 14th, or constantly be compared to the dude who did.There’ll be no shortage of couples “deals” at restaurants and sales on jewelry, both of which are the bare minimum for any Valentine’s day. But this is Valentine’s Day weekend. So, if you’re really, truly happy in your relationship, or just getting one off the ground, maybe consider a romantic weekend getaway. You don’t have to fly to Paris or set sail for the Caribbean, you just need to find a location that’s got a comfy room, has a few activities in case you feel like going outside and (of course) wine and chocolate. Do it wrong and she’ll love you for the effort (or, our advice, you can move on). But romantic getaways done right can get you bonus points for at least the year, and probably a little more. To help…we’ve tracked down some of the coolest places in America that were made just for loving.From San Francisco: Tree Bones Resort, Big SurYou might be tempted to go north towards Sonoma, but we say: Pack your own wine and look south to Big Sur. It’s a three and a half hour drive, but you will be rewarded handsomely at Tree Bones Resort, which we’re sure you’ve heard someone raving about. Luxury yurts (think fancy tents) with gas burning fireplaces, ridiculous sunset views, heated swimming pool and hot tubs and a little outdoor sushi bar to keep you fed. It’s just after Sea Lion mating season, and if you take a kayak from the resort, there’s a good chance you can see ’em. If the yurts are all sold out, and you’re really feeling like making babies, or hell, already have one and feel like being weird…there’s the Human Nest, which is just as it sounds: a covered bed made out of twigs on a cliff.From Portland & Seattle: Cannery Pier Hotel, AstoriaGo to Astoria. Do it. It might be a touch frigid, but if you stay at the Cannery Pier Hotel, where every room has a gas fireplace and river views, you won’t really mind. Though,should you want to venture out and explore the oldest town in America West of the Rockies, rooms also come with a driver (in either a ’39 BuicK, ’38 Packard or ’45 Cadillac). Besides (and this you probably already know), it’s where they filmed Goonies so you can go wax nostalgic about that amazing film. Maybe you’ll channel the quirky romance between Andy and Mikey.From Los Angeles: Hacienda Hot Springs, Outside of Palm SpringsWeekend getaways to Palm Springs are no hidden secret to Angelinos, or to the rest of the world for that matter (thank you Hollywood). But for a good portion of the year it’s way too three-digit-temperature hot to visit, so consider February, where day time temps over in the high 70s, to be this desert oasis town’s sweet spot. You also don’t really have to stay in town to enjoy its great hiking and dining. Hacienda Hot Springs is a six room Inn with its own natural mineral water pool, Tempurpedic beds, and a Finnish rock sauna that’s about 20 minutes outside Palm Springs and only 30 minutes from Joshua Tree. OH, and it’s adults only.From New York City: Copper Beech Inn, ConnecticutNew York City in February can best be describe in two words—Over. It. Enough of the crowds, the grime, the cold, the lack of cabs, the vaguely functioning subway system and enough working late on the weekends. Take the excuse of Valentine’s Day to get the hell outta town. Connecticut is the way to go if you’re looking for something bucolic, close and somewhat unexpected. The Copper Beech Inn, just two hours outside the city in an adorably quaint New England village has everything you need for the weekend: Hydro massage tubs for two, cable TV and an award winning restaurant called The Oak Room. And bonus—less traffic on the road than your buddy taking his girl to Montauk.From Philadelphia: Woolverton Inn, Outside of New HopeQuestion: What’s the opposite of private? Did you say Bed & Breakfast? That was our initial reaction too, until we happened upon the Woolverton Inn just outside of New Hope in Pennsylvania, about an hour and a half from NYC and just 50 minutes from Philly. Out here, on some of the most kiss-inducing, quaint country landscape imaginable, they’ve got cottages that draw a line between you and the rest of the property with their own private entrances, but that still offer up all the sweet things people love about B&B’s like a three course, home cooked, country style breakfast. New Hope and antiquing are just minutes away. Ask for the Sojourn Loft – it has a fireplace and a hammock in the bathroom (just be sure to let your girl in every so often..)From Chicago: Herrington Inn, GenevaFirst, we hope you’ve thawed out from Chi-beria without losing any limbs. Second, if your relationship has either a) survived, or b) solidified because of the forbidding temperatures outside, then the both of you either a) deserve, or b) are dumb enough in love to pay for a little pampering. So turn your attention to the Herrington Inn in Geneva, just an hour outside the city. There are fireplaces in every room, whirlpool baths, a stately restaurant, and…the kicker…a spa that’s actually not that expensive.From Atlanta: Mansion on Forsythe Park, SavannahYes, Hotlanta. You are a proud city, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give some love to your state’s other fine hamlets. It is Valentine’s Day after all and Savannah is downright majestic – over 40% of its buildings are old enough to qualify as historically significant, children play in the streets beneath gigantic Oak trees covered in Spanish Moss and time here just doesn’t seem to move. It’s how life should be. Stay at the Mansion on Forsythe Park, a restored Victorian Romanesque mansion that’s dripping in art, home to a spa and even has its very own cooking school. Have a glass of wine on the terrace at sunset over looking the park and let the sparks fly.From Houston: Barons CreekSide, FredricksburgFredricksburg is an adorable little town about three and a half hours away from downtown Houston. That is if you don’t get side tracked in Austin, which is on the way and, being one of our favorite towns, you could stop there if you two are currently attending Rock and Roll High (or you could also just say F*&% it, and Drive to New Orleans in the other direction). But no, if you want a seriously romantic escape with your girl, drive her to Barons CreekSide, just five minutes outside of Fredricksburg and ask for one of the Swiss Log Cabins. The owner, who hails from said country, had them dismantled in Switzerland and shipped to Texas where they were built on the tree lined shores of Baron’s Creek and adorned with hot tubs. Bring your own food to cook in the kitchenette and laze on the porch and pretend you’re in the hills of Europe (without the hills).
zoomIllustration; Image by Navingo Containership charter owner Global Ship Lease has agreed five-year charters with French liner company CMA CGM for two 2015-built booxships.The deal involves 6,882 TEU containerships UASC Bubiyan and UASC Yas, and comes on the back of similar charters the company inked with CMA CGM in November for four ships. The wide-beam containerships were acquired through GSL’s recent merger with Poseidon Containers.“In addition to the substantial value of the merger as originally announced, our subsequent chartering activity related to Poseidon legacy vessels continues to produce the incremental value that we anticipated, having now added more than USD 280 million of incremental contracted revenue and over USD 200 million of incremental EBITDA, while increasing our weighted average remaining charter term beyond that of the GSL legacy fleet and bringing our charter-attached NAV to over USD 500 million as of September 30, 2018.“In this way, we are once again significantly improving GSL’s earnings profile and long-term cashflow visibility as we clearly benefit from the substantial value brought to the table by Poseidon Containers,” Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, said.GSL said that the charters will commence upon the expiry of the current charters during the second quarter of 2019, are for a period of five years. The company scored hire rates for the duo standing at USD 25,910 per day, up from USD 20,000 per day under the current charters.Global Ship Lease owns 38 vessels, of which nine are Post-Panamax new-design eco wide beam, with an average age of 10.7 years.

LONDON — Royal Bank of Scotland says first-quarter earnings fell 12.5% as economic uncertainty linked to Brexit curtailed lending.Net income dropped to 707 million pounds ($912 million) from 808 million pounds in the same period last year as businesses delayed borrowing decisions.

Michael Adlerstein, Executive Director of the project, known officially as the Capital Master Plan (CMP), told reporters that “significant progress” had been made since the General Assembly approved a $1.9 billion accelerated strategy in December. Beside the finalization of plans for the temporary conference building, all necessary “swing” space” for the temporary relocation of 5,000 displaced staff members has now been secured, Mr. Adlerstein said.“Design work for the interior fit-out is also near completion,” he added, while the outfitting of “swing space” offices was already under way.The temporary conference building will be built on the lawn area north of the UN complex between First Avenue and the East River, and will replace the General Assembly, Security Council and other meeting spaces in turn.It will also house the Executive Office of the Secretary-General and related staff throughout the renovation, Mr. Adlerstein added.Other staff will be accommodated in newly-leased space in Midtown and Long Island City, as well as redistributed throughout current Headquarters facilities. The largest “swing space,” on Madison Ave and 46th Street, will take in 1,820 workers.Library resources and staff will remain in place in the Dag Hammarskjöld Library for the duration of the renovations, he said.The Capital Master Plan aims to bring the five-decade old Secretariat and adjacent buildings, which are plagued by leaks, safety violations and outdated systems, up to code and to high standards of efficiency and environmental sustainability.Calling coordination with New York City “very positive,” Mr. Adlerstein said that the UN had held negotiations with the city officials and had voluntarily agreed to comply with the municipal fire and safety codes from which it is exempt.“This framework will take into account the important interest of New York City while preserving the privileges and immunities of the UN without reservation,” he said. 6 March 2008Ground breaking for the construction of a temporary venue for international meetings, the most visible piece of the intricate five-year renovation of the landmark United Nations Headquarters in New York, will take place in May, the head of the effort announced today.

Vancouver-based pizza purveyor Papa Murphy’s announced Wednesday that it sustained a net loss of $421,000, or 3 cents per diluted share, on lower per-store sales for its fiscal third quarter ended Sept. 26.Revenue for the quarter was $28.5 million, an increase of 1.4 percent compared with the third quarter of 2015.However, comparable domestic store sales fell 5.8 percent year-over-year, including 5.6 percent at franchise-owned stores and 7.7 percent at company-owned stores. Papa Murphy’s opened 26 new stores in the quarter, 24 of which are in the United States.Adjusted EBITDA earnings were $4.8 million, compared with $6.1 million the previous year.“We had a disappointing quarter,” said Ken Calwell, president and chief executive officer, in a statement. Calwell cited an increasingly competitive pizza industry and the difficult advertising environment during a presidential campaign year. Advertising is considered to be a driving factor in pizza sales.Calwell said Papa Murphy’s will launch its first national television advertising campaign in 2017. The campaign will include at least six full weeks of advertising. He said that company executives believe the campaign will result not only in increased sales of Papa Murphy’s pizzas to consumers, but also sales of store franchises, and will also raise brand awareness.Papa Murphy’s has more than 1,570 franchised or company-owned stores selling take-and-bake pizza in the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. The company’s shares closed at $4.70 Wednesday, down 64 cents, on the Nasdaq exchange.
PORTLAND — A man killed in an Oregon wildfire appears to have been trying to protect his neighbor’s property from flames sweeping through vast wheat fields in a rural farming area, authorities said Thursday.John Ruby, 64, was found near a burned-out tractor, and investigators believe he was attempting to clear a strip of land to prevent the flames from spreading. Desperate farmers tried to salvage their crops during harvest season as the blaze ignited Tuesday and scorched nearly 80 square miles.Firefighters crept into the fields in water trucks and tried to douse the leading edges of the fire from behind as it burned through acres of wheat east of Portland.It marked the unofficial start to the Pacific Northwest wildfire season that’s expected to be worse than normal because of drought and above-average temperatures.Other states across the American West, including California and Colorado, have struggled with massive blazes that have torn through land gripped by drought.Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said the deadly fire may have been intentionally set, and state investigators will help with the investigation. She also has declared an emergency.

BALURGHAT: A local Trinamool Congress party office located in ward no 15 at Shibbari under Gangarampur civic body was allegedly captured by a group of BJP activists on Sunday. The BJP activists also allegedly mutilated Trinamool flags, festoons and banners that were used during the LS poll campaigning. According to a local source, the incident occurred on Sunday morning when the saffron activists reached there with slogans of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Jai Shree Ram. They had also changed the colour of the party office. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata”We have captured the Balurghat LS seat by defeating Trinamool. There will be no TMC party office here in the locality. Everywhere the saffron flags have now started flying in the district,” the activists shouted. Acting Trinamool councillor of ward 15 Jayanta Das said: “We have heard that some BJP activists have captured the TMC party office. We will discuss about the incident in the party district committee meeting shortly.” Notably, the BJP activists started attacking Trinamool workers just after the announcement of the LS poll results on May 23.
Vitamin D is needed for the health of bone and teeth, as well as absorption of calcium. It plays a role in immunity, can help reduce inflammation and is being investigated for use in treating cancer. Over the years, headlines have linked vitamin D deficiency with chubby children, childhood asthma, auto-immune diseases, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, slower healing bones and age-related macular degeneration (deterioration of eyesight). Low levels of vitamin D have also been documented in populations of cancer patients. Groups most vulnerable to deficiency are children under 5 and adults over 65, pregnant and lactating women, dark-skinned individuals and those who do not expose their skin to the sun. While only the term vitamin D is generally used, you may have heard D2 and D3 mentioned, so what are these and which version should we take? The general consensus is that D3 (cholecalciferol) is the more biologically active form although many supplement companies still churn out D2 (ergocalciferol) in their formulations, and food manufacturers tend to fortify products with it. Still, the addition of vitamin D2 to milk was a key factor in the elimination of childhood rickets in the U.S. Thus, we can conclude that both forms are viable, with D2 perhaps needing a higher dosage. Vitamin D can be obtained naturally from oily fish, eggs, dairy products and the sun. Ultraviolet rays act on cholesterol in the skin to form an intermediate product, which is then processed by the liver to produce an active form of the vitamin. Approximately 20 minutes of sun a day can be enough to prevent deficiency. Interestingly, in Costa Rica it used to be customary for people to put their babies out for a half hour in the early morning sun. Grandmother does often know best!Note that in the same way dark skin blocks a percentage of these rays from filtering through, slapping on the sun block can similarly impair the effectiveness of vitamin D synthesis. Realistically, 20 minutes in the sun is unlikely to be damaging, as long as you avoid the intense 11a.m.-2 p.m. period. The amount of vitamin D that we can get from the sun is self-regulated with a built-in system that prevents you from overdosing. Supplementing with tablets or sourcing your vitamin D from fortified foods has no such protection mechanism. Toxicity is important, as a recent report from Copenhagen University linked people with both very low and very high levels of vitamin D in their blood with higher death rates than those with moderate levels. With the sunny climate of Costa Rica, there should be little need for supplementation. If you do decide to go this route, be aware that D2 is synthesised from plant sources whereas D3 comes from animal sources. As always there is much debate on levels, but children’s daily allowance is set at 400-600iu and adults’ at 600-800iu. If you feel that you need more than this, consult your doctor or nutritional therapist, who can assess your overall health and make the necessary recommendations.
