Jürgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah’s game has improved tremendously as he’s adapted to playing in a slightly different position for Liverpool this season.Salah has notched in 14 goals this season and remains the club’s top scorer with the latest coming against Wolves.The Egyptian forward played as a lone striker at Molineux where he scored and assisted Virgil van Dijk’s second-half goal.“It’s good,” Klopp told reporters at Melwood on Monday morning, when asked about the Egyptian’s development. “He had to adapt a bit to the slightly different positions; it’s not that much different, but it is different from time to time.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…“We need him as a link-up player as well and that’s a very important part of our game, but he is still with the desire and with his speed. His speed in the first few yards is just impressive. He is a very important part of our finishing situation in general, how we prepare them, how we come into the situations.“Of course, he is young enough to involve a lot more things in his style of play. It is not just speed, it is not just finishing, it is between the lines, there are a lot of things, there is keeping the ball, but you need your body for that. That was the only problem Mo had a little bit at the beginning of the season, a part of his body was not perfect.“If you work in an office and your shoulder is not 100 percent, if it is not your writing hand then it should be OK, but if you are a professional football player in this moment it just keeps 10 or 15 percent away.“He is a world-class player, but we all knew we had to wait for the moment when everything is fine – that is already a few weeks ago and so it’s all good.”
Rescued olive ridley sea turtle transported to SeaWorld San Diego January 26, 2018 Posted: January 26, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A rescued, endangered olive ridley sea turtle was flown into San Diego Friday afternoon after it was found stranded on an Oregon beach last October.Coral was transported to San Diego by the U.S. Coast Guard and she’ll be receiving long-term rehabilitative care at SeaWorld. Since her rescue more than three months ago, Coral has been provided expert critical care by the Seattle Aquarium.The mature female sea turtle was flown on a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft to Naval Base Coronado (Naval Air Station North Island) where she was received by the SeaWorld Rescue Team and taken to the park’s Animal Health and Rescue Center where she will continue her rehabilitation.Coral weighs about 75 pounds and is estimated to be between 18 and 25 years old. She was found stranded Oct. 20, 2017 by a member of the public on a beach near Salishan on the Oregon coast.When rescued, she was emaciated, weak and suffering from hypothermia. She was transported to the Seattle Aquarium, Washington state’s only sea turtle rehabilitation facility, arriving in critical condition. The Aquarium’s zoological staff immediately began lifesaving medical treatment including addressing serious bacterial infections.Over the past three months, Coral has been gradually recovering and is ready to begin her next phase of rehabilitation at SeaWorld San Diego. It is hoped that she can be returned to the ocean in late summer or early fall when the ocean temperature off the Southern California coast is stable around 70 degrees. Olive ridley turtles are protected under the Endangered Species Act. They are found throughout the Pacific Ocean, although they mostly occur in the tropical and subtropical areas.They generally venture no further north than Southern California on the eastern Pacific coast, but they do occasionally occur in temperate regions including the relatively cold waters of Oregon and Washington coasts.

Cosper replaces long-time editorial director Rieva Lesonsky, who recently left the company.Entrepreneur has also hired Charles Muselli, formerly a senior business development manager at Sony Connect and consultant, to be director of business development, replacing Chuck Fuller who also left the company.
Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) this week indicated he would allow civilian nominations to the Defense Department to advance to the chamber floor as soon as President Obama signs the reworked version of the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill into law.“We want the NDAA signed,” McCain said, reported Politico. “Then, we’ll look at the whole situation.” McCain has been sitting on more than a dozen civilian nominees, refusing to schedule confirmation hearings.On Thursday, the House easily approved the revised fiscal 2016 authorization bill, 370 to 58. The Senate is scheduled to take up the measure next Tuesday. The amended version authorizes $5 billion less in funding than the original, after last week’s budget agreement called for $33 billion in defense spending above the Budget Control Act cap for FY 2016, an increase that didn’t quite meet the $38 billion in extra funds Congress and the administration had planned for.Earlier this week, the House and Senate Armed Services committees and defense appropriators agreed on cuts to reduce the topline funding level in the authorization bill by $5 billion.McCain has been slowing the advance of civilian nominations through his committee since he became chairman at the beginning of the year. There currently are 13 civilian nominations for DOD posts pending in his committee, including Eric Fanning to be secretary of the Army and John Conger to be the principal deputy to the Pentagon comptroller.Initially McCain said the suspension of hearings and votes on civilian nominations was payback for Democrats changing Senate rules while they were still in the majority to allow for simple majority votes to end debate on nominees. But more recently his rationale focused on Obama’s threat to veto the conference report for the defense authorization bill over its reliance on DOD’s war account to evade the statutory spending caps.Even if McCain allows civilian nominees to advance to the full Senate for confirmation, individual senators still could place holds on their nominations, the story noted.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR The 25th Infantry Division, based at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, will begin converting its 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team (BCT) to an infantry BCT in March, with the effort scheduled to finish in July, Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn, the division’s commanding general, told reporters at the Pentagon on Monday.The move — which will result in the loss of 1,214 soldiers — follows the Army’s latest round of restructuring, which is slated to shrink its active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000 soldiers by the end of fiscal 2018.The BCT’s 330 Strykers will be transferred to the Washington National Guard’s 81st Armored BCT, Flynn said. That brigade has subordinate units in Washington, Oregon and California, reported Army Times.As part of the 2nd BCT’s conversion, the unit will deactivate one of its infantry battalions because infantry BCTs outside the United States have two maneuver battalions, compared with the three that make up a Stryker BCT, Flynn said.One challenge the commander is managing is that duty in Hawaii is considered an overseas assignment, requiring soldiers to serve there for three years.“We’re trying to make sure we look after soldiers and families and career paths and not damage any of that,” Flynn said. The goal is to “make sure no one gets lost in the transition of that brigade combat team.”As part of the Army’s five-year aviation restructuring initiative, the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade also will undergo a conversion this year. The brigade’s 2nd Squadron will be swapping its OH-58 Kiowa Warriors for AH-64 Apache helicopters, according to the story.

WILMINGTON, MA — At a recent School Committee Meeting, Shawsheen Elementary School Principal Lisa King announced the installation of a “Buddy Bench” at her school.Students utilize the bench during recess when they are having difficulty finding a friend or group to play with. If a child is seen sitting alone on the bench, classmates are trained to approach the child and ask him or her to play.King introduced the three students — Julianna, Liam and Craig — who wrote letters to the school’s guidance counselor, asking for such a bench. The students read their letters to the School Committee.“Mrs. Gibbs, out Guidance Counselor, worked all summer to make this happen,” King told the Committee.King also thanked the Wilmington Educational Foundation and the Cottini Family for funding the project, and Wilmington DPW for installing the bench.The school’s Technology Integration Specialist, Kim Provensal, worked with students to create a video highlighting the five rules surrounding the use of the bench. All students watched the video during a recent school-wide assembly.The video was screened for the Committee and can be viewed HERE. (The required password is 0302.)“In second grade, these young leaders came up with the idea,” said King. “In third grade, they helped create the video.”“Thank you for sharing your letters and your video,” responded School Committee Chair Julie Broussard.A Buddy Bench was also installed at the Boutwell Early Childhood Center at the end of last school year.(NOTE: Cover photo of bench is from Provensal’s Twitter account.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Comments Every Batman that matters, ranked 7 Here’s hoping Robert Pattinson has more luck as Batman than Ben Affleck did in the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros. Twilight actor Robert Pattinson could end up playing the Caped Crusader in director Matt Reeves’ upcoming superhero film The Batman, hitting theaters on June 25, 2021, according to a report from Variety on Thursday.”Pattinson was cast even as Reeves continues to polish a final version of the script,” according to Variety. However, according to a report from Deadline on Thursday, Pattinson isn’t the only actor in the running. Nicholas Hoult — who stars in both Tolkien and the film Dark Phoenix — is also on the short list for The Batman lead.Reeves — best known for his work on the most recent Planet of the Apes sequels — took over Batman directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017.Reeves was allowed to pick his own Bruce Wayne, which could end up being the Twilight heartthrob Pattinson or Hoult. If either the 32-year-old Pattinson or the 29-year-old Hoult agree to play the Caped Crusader, either actor will be the youngest to ever play Batman on the big screen.Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
