Sturridge to leave Liverpool? talkSPORT presenters have on-air spat

first_imgDaniel Sturridge’s Liverpool’s future is the subject of much debate this morning, with newspaper reports claiming he is ready to quit Anfield becasue he is fed up with the constant criticism of him due to his lengthy injury lay-offs.It is a situation that divides opinion, and it certainly did just that in the Sports Breakfast studio this morning as Alan Brazil and Kieron Dyer went toe-to-toe…Kieron Dyer: “If he’s got a legitimate injury, and he knows he’s going to go on the pitch and there’s a great chance he could break down after ten or 15 minutes, I think he’s doing the right thing [by saying he’s unfit]. Yes, people want to see the desire, and when he’s on the pitch he does show that desire. He’s Liverpool’s most important and best player, when he’s on the pitch.”Alan Brazil: “I’d get rid. If he comes back to haunt you and scores two, well, it’s a decision you have to make.”KD: “If they sell Daniel Sturridge on the cheap, they are going to spend, what, £40million or £50million to get a striker of that calibre though.”AB: “Well, he’s not playing at the moment so you’re not missing anything. When he plays, yeah, but he doesn’t play.”KD:” He will play, he’ll come back with a bang.”AB: “A bang?!”KD: “I still think he’ll make the England squad. I think Roy Hodgson will give him all the time in the world, and being an England fan we need a top Daniel Sturridge. He has the potential to be world class and you can’t say that about many of the England squad.”AB: “I definitely think he’s weak in his head, I do. I think he’s got a problem with his body, no doubt about it, and that is a great shame, but I think sometimes you’ve got to go out there and play when you’re at 85 per cent. He is, as you say, an international football player, a great player, but I think he’s just got to be a little bit stronger. I think [Jurgen] Klopp will fall out of love with him. I’m sure he will.”KD: “I think he has already fallen out of love with him if you read the quotes and hear what he has to say, which is a shame. I hope it gets resolved because Liverpool need him if they are to get back to being the force they once were.”AB: “They need players like him, you’re right.”last_img read more

Look! On the Net! It’s comics

first_img“They really do tend to be feeder systems,” Ring said of online comics.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Marvel is putting some of its older comics online today, hoping to reintroduce young people to the X-Men and Fantastic Four by showcasing the original issues in which such characters appeared. It’s a tentative move onto the Internet: Comics can only be viewed in a Web browser, not downloaded, and new issues will only go online at least six months after they first appear in print. Still, it represents perhaps the comics industry’s most aggressive Web push yet. Even as their creations – from Iron Man to Wonder Woman – become increasingly visible in pop culture through new movies and video games, old-school comics publishers rely primarily on specialized, out-of-the-way comic shops for distribution of their bread-and-butter product. “You don’t have that spinner rack of comic books sitting in the local five-and-dime any more,” said Dan Buckley, president of Marvel Publishing. “We don’t have our product intersecting kids in their lifestyle space as much as we used to.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Translate “kids’ lifestyle space” into plain English and you get “the Internet.” Marvel’s two most prominent competitors currently offer online teasers designed to drive the sales of comics or book collections. Dark Horse Comics now puts its monthly anthologies “Dark Horse Presents” up for free viewing on its MySpace site. The images are vibrant and large. DC Comics has also put issues up on MySpace, and recently launched the competition-based Zuda Comics, which encourages users to rank each other’s work, as a way to tap into the expanding Web comic scene. Company President Paul Levitz said he expects to put more original comics online in coming years. For its mature Vertigo imprint, DC offers weekly sneak peeks at the first five or six pages of upcoming issues. The publisher also gives out downloadable PDF files of the first issues in certain series, timed to publication of the series in book or graphic novel format. The Web release of DC’s “Y the Last Man” sent sales of that book collection soaring at Bridge City Comics in Portland, Ore., the shop’s owner, Michael Ring, said. last_img read more

Task force targets MS-13 gang

first_imgCapping a two-year investigation, federal, state and local law enforcement authorities this morning took into custody a total of 26 members and associates of the MS-13 gang, arresting the gang’s No. 1 “shot caller” in the Los Angeles area, as well as top leaders of several cliques of the gang. Oscar Chacon, 29, the top member of MS-13 in Los Angeles, was arrested pursuant to a federal criminal complaint that accuses him of participating in a narcotics transaction in which approximately one-quarter pound of methamphetamine was sold, as well as five other deals involving smaller quantities of methamphetamine. The narcotics conspiracy charge against Chacon carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a statutory maximum sentence of life without parole. Chacon is one of 16 defendants arrested today on federal charges, and most of those defendants face mandatory minimum sentences of at least five years in prison. Two other defendants were previously arrested on federal charges, and two more federal defendants are already are in custody on unrelated charges. A total of 26 defendants face federal charges contained in four indictments, 13 criminal complaints and one criminal information. Six of the federal defendants are considered to be fugitives. In addition to the federal cases unsealed today, authorities today arrested three defendants on state charges, one was taken into immigration custody, and six were taken into custody for parole and probation violations. State authorities are still seeking to take 21 into custody on criminal charges and probation violations. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre This investigation was conducted by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Task Force on Violent Crime, which is comprised of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Probation Department and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The task force received the assistance of parole officers with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the United States Marshals Service and the United States Bureau of Prisons. Additionally, officers with the Salvadoran PNC (Policia Nacional Civil) are in Los Angeles in support of today’s operation as part of a continuing cooperative effort with the FBI’s MS-13 National Gang Task Force. Additionally, PNC members observed today’s operation in furtherance of the Officer Exchange initiative between the PNC, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. This participation is one of the results of an FBI-sponsored Gang Summit held earlier this year. “We are committed to using all of the resources at our disposal to identify, prosecute and incarcerate gang members who prey upon our communities,” said United States Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien. “This crackdown on MS-13 is the latest in a series of gang cases that my office has brought recently, and there will be more such cases in the near future. With the support of our federal, state and local law enforcement colleagues, we will have a significant impact in gang-infected neighborhoods in Southern California.” Peter Brust, Acting Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI in Los Angeles, stated: “The collective efforts of agents and officers at every level of government which culminated in dozens of arrests today gave power to the voices of law-abiding citizens who have been held hostage in their own homes and neighborhoods. By significantly disrupting the MS-13 criminal enterprise in Los Angeles, those arrested can no longer exist in anonymity and wield their self-proclaimed power without fear of law enforcement intervention.” Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13, is a transnational gang composed primarily of immigrants and descendants of immigrants from El Salvador and is thought to number approximately 10,000 members. The gang has established itself in a number of cities across the United States. There are a number of MS-13 “cliques” in the Los Angeles area, primarily east of downtown Los Angeles. “Partnership between federal, state and local agencies is crucial in dealing with the gang problem,” said Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton. “Today’s operation is an example of what law enforcement working together can accomplish to address what I call the number one problem facing our city – gangs.” Robert Schoch, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Los Angeles, stated: “This operation is another prime example of what can be accomplished when federal, state, and local agencies join forces to attack the crime and violence perpetrated by organized street gangs. ICE wants to send a clear message that we will deal strongly with those who ignore our laws and place our neighborhoods at risk. This operation is proof we are making good on that pledge.” Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley commented: “Once again in Los Angeles County we are going after the worst sort of criminals in the most constructive way by the use of cooperative federal-state investigations and prosecutions.” According to City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, whose prosecutors assisted federal authorities in the investigation: “The MS-13 gang is a significant theat to the public safety of all Angelenos. Law enforcement agencies must observe jurisdictional boundaries, but MS-13 gang members do not. MS-13 is a transnational gang with a strong presence in the United States and Central America This puts a premium on federal, state and local cooperation. Working together, we aim to eradicate the MS-13 gang.” For news and observations about crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
