For Aviation to be chosen as the gin of choice for such an iconic and quintessentially British brand is a complete honour.“We look forward to serving Virgin Atlantic guests for years to come and, on a personal note, Sir Richard has promised to teach me the difference between revenue and profit, so I am beyond excited.”Virgin Group founder Branson added, “I’m delighted Virgin Atlantic is working with Ryan and his team on this partnership. Aviation Gin was born out of a spirit of innovation, so serving it on board Virgin Atlantic flights seemed like the perfect combination.”To celebrate the partnership, some lucky passengers on board Virgin Atlantic flights on September 30 will be served a selection of special drinks by bartenders from around the world.Reynolds and Branson will also be bringing the partnership to this year’s London Cocktail Week, from October 3 to 7.

Business Highlights

first_img___Fed minutes: Growing risks make rate hike path less clearWASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve officials expressed increasing worries when they met last month, as they grappled with volatile stock markets, trade tensions and uncertain global growth. The threats, they said, made the future path of interest rate hikes “less clear.” According to minutes of the Fed’s December meetings, officials believed that with inflation still muted, the central bank could afford to be “patient” about future rate hikes.___Stocks post 4th straight gain as hopes build on China tradeNEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks rose for the fourth straight day, the longest winning streak since September, after negotiators from the U.S. and China extended their trade talks to a third day. Oil prices jumped again and stocks linked to faster economic growth, such as technology companies, kept rising. The gains were dented slightly after President Donald Trump and Democratic leaders said Trump cut short a meeting on ending the partial shutdown of the federal government.___Remember virtual reality? Its buzz has faded at CES 2019NEW YORK (AP) — Virtual reality was poised to take over the world a few years ago, but now its buzz has faded. The culprits include overhype, clunky headsets and a lack of compelling VR software. In particular, venture-capital funding for VR software development has plummeted, falling almost 60 per cent in 2018 by one estimate.___UK lawmakers rebuff May as she tries to salvage Brexit dealLONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May has brought her little-loved EU divorce agreement back to lawmakers, who appear determined to thwart her plans. A month after postponing a vote on the deal to avert near-certain defeat, May urged Parliament to support it to prevent a chaotic British exit on March 29 with no agreement. But lawmakers look set to reject the deal in a vote next week.___Elderly, conservatives shared more Facebook fakery in 2016WASHINGTON (AP) — A new study finds that people over 65 and conservatives shared far more false information on Facebook in 2016 than others. Researchers say that for every piece of “fake news” shared by young adults, moderates or super liberals, senior citizens and far-right conservatives shared about seven false items. Experts say seniors might not discern truth from fiction as easily on social media. The sheer volume of false pro-Donald Trump information may have skewed the sharing numbers to the right.___Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and wife divorcing after 25 yearsSEATTLE (AP) — Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing, ending a 25-year marriage that undergirded the creation of the e-commerce company that made Bezos the world’s wealthiest person. The decision to divorce comes after a trial separation, according to a statement posted Wednesday on Bezos’ Twitter account. Left unanswered was how the divorce will affect the $137 billion fortune that has been amassed since Bezos started Amazon in the couple’s Seattle garage in 1995.___Federal shutdown delays some state road, bridge contractsOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Uncertainty over federal funding for transportation projects amid a partial government shutdown is forcing some states to delay approving contracts for new road and bridge projects. Other states are preparing for that possibility if the shutdown continues. Transportation officials in Oklahoma this week announced plans to delay bids on 45 new highway projects worth about $137 million.___S. Korea orders seizure of Japan assets over forced labourSEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A South Korean court says it has ordered the seizure of local assets of a Japanese company after it refused to compensate several wartime forced labourers, in an escalation of a diplomatic brawl between the Asian neighbours. Japan called the decision “extremely regrettable” and said it will push for talks with Seoul on the issue.___At gadget show, makers of women’s ‘massager’ charge sexismLAS VEGAS (AP) — The makers of a robotic “personal massager” for women won a prestigious CES award. Then organizers took it away. Its maker, the startup Lora DiCarlo, was also banned from exhibiting at this week’s CES tech show in Las Vegas. The show’s organizer, the Consumer Technology Association, says it reserves the right to disqualify any entry, though it didn’t say why it’s ineligible. Ose’s makers say it’s sexism, noting that a virtual-reality porn company has exhibited there for years.___The S&P 500 index climbed 10.55 points, or 0.4 per cent, to 2,584.96.

Anchoring the Buckeye defense OSU seeks depth at linebacker

While Penn State is more affably known as “Linebacker U,” OSU seems to produce All-Americans annually at the position.  Last season, OSU had to replace all-everything linebacker James Laurinaitis and longtime starter Marcus Freeman. They didn’t miss a beat, however, as Brian Rolle and Austin Spitler were productive in their starting roles.  With Spitler gone, the Buckeyes are looking for a replacement to match his production. “We’re going to play the best three linebackers,” said Luke Fickell, linebacker coach.“We’ve got a couple of older guys in Homan and Rolle who have played a lot but we’re really looking to see what the young guys can do.” OSU has several young players eager to fill the void, but it looks like it could finally be Etienne Sabino’s time. Sabino, a blue-chip prospect from Florida, might have been the most-heralded recruit in the 2008 class other than Terrelle Pryor. His size, speed and athleticism made him arguably one of the top linebacker prospects in the country. Some expected Sabino to have an immediate impact, while others looked for him to be a starter last season when OSU replaced two seniors.  It wasn’t Sabino’s extraordinary physical gifts that were holding him back, Fickell said.  “You just see him a little more confident, a little bit more of a reacting guy and attacking,” Fickell said. “In the past, he has been a cerebral guy who wants to know everything and sometimes in this sport you can’t know everything. You just have to fly and attack and react on the run.”  “Sometimes we try to study guys and how they learn, and those kind of guys who want more info just take that extra year to process it,” Fickell said, “but when they are ready to go, they’ll be good to go usually.”  Rolle said that he has always known Sabino had extraordinary talent, but at times played too mechanically or like a robot, which held him back. He said Sabino is doing a good job of playing more naturally and is preparing to make his presence known.  “He’s such a young kid,” Fickell said. “I know he is going to be a junior, but he is only 19 years old, and you would like to have some more time with him. He is really coming along and I think this is his best spring so far.” Behind the likely starters of Homan, Rolle and Sabino, the Buckeyes are still trying to find the right players who will be able to contribute.  Andrew Sweat was another highly touted recruit from 2008 who should be ready to get playing time come September. Right now, however, Sweat is still working his way back from ACL surgery. “Andrew is a guy [who thinks he is ready to roll],” Fickell said. “He is only five-and-a-half months out of ACL surgery and he is the guy we are expecting a lot from. If he was in there it would be interesting to see who our best three guys were. He is probably a month away but he thinks he is ready to go, and the other day he jumped in there and went full go.” Fickell said he would like to have as many as nine guys at linebacker who could take turns playing, and stressed the importance of having more capable players than just the three starters.  Along with Sweat, younger players such as Storm Klein, Dorian Bell, Jonathan Newsome and incoming recruits Scott McVey and Jamel Turner could add depth.  “You would like to have six guys who can play,” Fickell said. “Would I be comfortable with some of those freshman guys on the field right now? Probably not real comfortable, but how will we know until we do it? With the jersey scrimmage and the spring game and fall camp, that is when we can really get to evaluate and see what they can do.” If there is one position the Ohio State Buckeyes are known for, it could very well be linebacker. read more

England must be aggressive and brave – Kane

first_imgEngland captain Harry Kane has urged his teammates to be both “aggressive and brave” ahead of the upcoming World CupThe Tottenham forward acknowledged that England have been too cautious in past tournaments and so, therefore, have been unable to properly display their true potential due to their rather excessive focus on playing it safe.While the Three Lions have fallen short in the major tournaments over the years, Kane is anticipating a change in routine for the current squad.“There will be tough moments, and ups and downs. Sometimes going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it’s about playing attacking football,” he told Sky Sports.“We are aiming to win the first game, then to target the second, and take that attitude to the World Cup.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: 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.Since making his England debut at senior level in 2015, Kane has since gone on to score 13 goals in 24 appearances.However, he failed to find the back of the net in Euro 2016 as England were shockingly eliminated by Iceland in the Round of 16 stage.“Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer,” said Kane.Gareth Southgate’s side will begin their World Cup campaign against Tunisia on Monday next week.last_img read more

Martial is grateful for Ole Gunnar Solskjaers guidance

first_imgNow that the storm has passed for Anthony Martial at Manchester United, he wanted to publicly thank Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his support.The start of the season for Anthony Martial was a real nightmare, the French kid missed the World Cup with France and had a serious problem with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival changed everything for the better.The French winger wasn’t feeling quite the same edgy attacker that he was just a few seasons prior to this one, missing the World Cup call-up was truly devastating and he didn’t really feel like having any confrontations with Jose Mourinho.In a sense, Martial does feel like the Portuguese manager was responsible for him missing the World Cup given that he didn’t play during the final part of the previous season for the Red Devils on a regular basis.We were slowly losing one of the most talented dribblers in English football thanks to a useless disagreement between him and a manager who loves to confront his players, and possible was doing everything he could to get fired because he didn’t like his job anymore.Martial was against a corner, just like many more Manchester United players were.We’re sensing a few sly digs at Jose Mourinho from Anthony Martial here 🧐https://t.co/xUTxd1zEt6— Goal UK (@GoalUK) January 17, 2019But things have drastically changed within the Red Devils’ training camp, along came a manager who truly understands how the players feel because he was a successful player during his time.It didn’t take him long to win the trust of all the players at Manchester United, but it would take him a little longer to recover the ones who had lost their trust.Ole Gunner Solskjaer made sure that those players were the first to know he was there for each of them, and Anthony Martial was no exception because he truly is one of the Red Devils’ biggest bets for the future.When the club signed him back in 2015 for an elevated €60 million, a sum of money that was immediately questioned but Martial has always fought to justify with his talents.However, Jose Mourinho came with the idea of applying pressure to the players who were more expensive and more talented from the club but he did it in the worst possible way.The Portuguese manager came in guns blazing from the very beginning, something that the players were destined to get tired of.Martial was actually one of the very first to call it quits, but he refused to leave the club, unlike other players who did (Mkhitaryan, for example).Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.🗣”The best advice i’ve received from him (Ole) is that I need to play to my strengths.

There he helped me a lot.”“The best advice I have received from him until now is that I have to play to my strengths. Don’t put pressure on myself. He says I have to express myself on the pitch. It is very nice to be able to get such advice from Solskjaer.”“He talked a lot different when we were in Dubai. He told us about the tricks he picked up as a player and how lucky we are to be part of Manchester United.”“We all know that he was great when he was a player. So we listen when he tells us something.”Anthony Martial | Frenchman explains how Solskjaer has driven home ‘how lucky’ players are to be at Man United.Says top managers can be tough but must ‘also create joy and a good mood’, backs Ole for job.https://t.co/FRJObSGlpN #mufc pic.twitter.com/4AXjFoVxDQ— Sport Witness (@Sport_Witness) January 17, 2019Why do you think Jose Mourinho doesn’t seem to understand his players?
