McIlroy eyeing Texas title

first_img Press Association Rory McIlroy has played himself into title contention at the Valero Texas Open and is relishing the opportunity to push for victory this weekend. The world number two’s mission this week was to play himself into form ahead of the Masters, and Friday’s five-under-par 67 indicated he is back in the old groove. Billy Horschel, eight under after 36 holes, leads the way but McIlroy is only three shots back. “I’m looking forward to getting into contention. I haven’t really been in contention this year and it’ll be nice to get in the mix,” the Northern Irishman said. “I want to play well and know if I play well I’ll have a great chance to win.” center_img He said of his third round: “I knew the conditions were good and you had to take advantage of it. I played solid, I drove the ball well, hit quite a lot of greens, and made some nice putts coming in. It gets me in a good position going into the weekend. I turned in one under par and felt I was playing better than that.” A run of three birdies from 16 to 18 reassured McIlroy, and the challenge will be to shoot another low round today. “I think I was rewarded for my patience out there,” he said. “It was a great way to finish and it’ll make dinner taste nicer and give me a few more hours in bed. I’m feeling comfortable with my game. I definitely feel like I made the right decision to come here, and even if I hadn’t been in this position and have been a few shots back I’d still feel the same way.” American Horschel leads from compatriots Charley Hoffman and Daniel Summerhays and Australian Steven Bowditch, all on six under. Dubliner Padraig Harrington had been four under after the opening round, but at one stage in his second 18 holes he slipped back to one under. Starting on the back nine, he dropped shots at 11, 13 and 17 before repairing much of the damage with birdies at the sixth and ninth lifting him to a 73 and a healthier three under. Scotland’s Martin Laird was also three under after a 71, with Englishmen Brian Davis and David Lynn steady on two under after their respective rounds of 72 and 70. Ireland’s Shane Lowry also carded a 72 to be two under through 36 holes. Ian Poulter and Charl Schwartzel just made the cut at one over after shooting rounds of 75 and 73 respectively. last_img read more

Arsenal 2-2 Manchester City: Demichelis rescues deserved point for the champions

first_img1 Martin Demichelis was the unlikely hero for Manchester City as the Argentine defender’s late header rescued a point in a thrilling draw at Arsenal.The Gunners went into the game desperate to finally make an impression against one of the so called big boys, after only taking 26 points out of a possible 90 over the past five seasons against sides in the top four.And with £16million deadline day signing Danny Welbeck leading the line, there was a renewed sense of optimism around the Emirates.The new arrival looked bright as Arsenal made a quick start and on 14 minutes the type of chance he would have dreamed of was gifted on a platter.An errant pass put the former Manchester United striker clear through on goal, and though his chip over Joe Hart was beautifully executed, it bounced agonisingly off the inside of the post and into the England goalkeeper’s grateful hands.The goal would have been magnificent but, in truth, Welbeck could have buried the opportunity had he placed the ball past his Three Lions colleague.And sure enough, Welbeck regretted his wastefulness when City took the lead through Sergio Aguero on 28 minutes – the Argentine striker coolly lifting the ball over Wojciech Szczesny from Jesus Navas’ cross.Moments later, City could have been two up when some brilliant one-touch passing released the silky David Silva, whose low snapshot was just saved by Szczesny.Arsenal kept on plugging away, but it was difficult to see where an equaliser was going to come from until suddenly things clicked perfectly into place with a beautiful team move.Jack Wilshere, who had looked bright without any end product, burst clear from midfield, exchanged a one-two with Aaron Ramsey, skipped past former team-mate Gael Clichy and lofted the ball brilliantly over Hart.The England midfielder has been subject to much criticism, but the goal lifted his game further and he soon turned provider to put Arsene Wenger’s side ahead.It was another goal of beauty as the 22-year-old perfectly cushioned his header over the City defence for Sanchez to smartly smash an excellent side-foot volley past Hart on 74 minutes.With the Emirates bouncing, Wilshere was dominating matters and Arsenal could have found a third when he flipped a cheeky through ball over top, only for Ramsey to just fall short of connecting with it.In a fashion befitting of Premier League champions, City refused to roll over and with seven minutes of normal time remaining they got their reward as Demichelis climbed highest to head home.Szczesny did well to get a glove to it but, unbeknown to the Poland international, in doing so he took the ball away from Mathieu Flamini, who was covering the post and would have headed the effort clear.Shortly before the equaliser there was another worry as Gunners defender Mathieu Debuchy turned his ankle and received lengthy treatment on the pitch before being stretchered off.Welbeck immediately looked to restore Arsenal’s lead and make himself an instant hero, but his curling effort just skimmed over the bar.It was the England forward’s last action as he left to a warm round of applause, but the final moments were edgy round the Emirates as City looked to find a winner.First Aleksandar Kolarov rattled the post with a rasping effort and then the woodwork rescued Arsenal again as Laurent Koscielny’s toe poke beyond his own keeper fortunately bounced back for Szczesny.But despite a breathless end to the match neither side could find a decisive third, as the match deservedly finished all square.

Europe experiencing crime and corruption emergency – Daphnes family

Europe experiencing crime and corruption emergency – Daphnes family

first_img <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrint #OccupyJustice#OccupyJustice The family of Daphne Caruana Galizia have said that they believe the lack of action to idenfity those responsible for the murders of those trying to expose money laundering activities within Pilatus and the ALBV banks, ‘shows that Europe is experiencing a crime and corruption emergency and it is only a matter of time before someone else is killed.’They outline that because they have been allowed to continue to operate, ‘shows that the EU’s weakest states are facilitating crime throughout Europe’s internal market. The fact that two people attempting to force effective oversight were murdered in well-planned attacks, within less than a year of each other, and that in both cases the people who ordered the murders are still unknown, shows that Europe is experiencing a crime and corruption emergency and it is only a matter of time before someone else is killed.’Read more:Scottish firm implicated in Azeri Laundromat held an account at Pilatus BankMalta washes its hands off PilatusDaphne was investigating dirty money – Il Sole 24 OreFor this reason, the family of murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia say they had filed a Suspicious Transaction Report last month with Latvia’s anti-money laundering authorities in an effort to hold one of its banks to account.The 31-page STR sent to Latvia’s Office for the Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity, outlines the names of individuals that Caruana Galizia had been investigating and their connection to a coordinated money laundering network run by the Latvian ABLV Bank.  The family believes that those involved ‘are connected to her subsequent murder.’Much like the efforts of Caruana Galizia to investigate the similarly dubious Pilatus Bank and her eventual coordinated assassination, Latvian lawyer Martin Bunkus had also sought to bring an end to ABLV Bank. Bunkus was latterly murdered ‘in a well-planned attack, just seven months later.’They state that this will be the only way ‘to continue forcing accountability and to activate judicial authorities, though the responsibility for achieving this is not ours alone.’They conclude by saying that ‘We hope that this report brings new evidence to light, helps authorities across Europe bring criminals to justice and helps authorities prevent more murders by taking action to end impunity for the crimes and criminal networks that Daphne Caruana Galizia investigated and exposed. We also hope that others will recognise that they too are able to force accountability and will be inspired to take the necessary action to end impunity and restore the rule of law.’WhatsApplast_img read more
