Ramsey injury mars Arsenal victory

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, England, December 26 – Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will miss the rest of the Christmas schedule after suffering a thigh injury in his side’s 3-1 win at West Ham on Thursday.Ramsey has been a key figure in Arsenal’s surprise challenge for the Premier League title and the Wales international’s injury is a major blow to the Gunners’ hopes.

He knew straight away, but we have to see.”Theo Walcott’s brace and a strike from the returning Lukas Podolski saw Arsenal recover from Carlton Cole’s goal against the run of play to take the points in east London.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Grocery workers’ benefits reduced

first_imgHealth care coverage among unionized grocery workers in Southern California has dropped steeply, but within expectations, in the three years following a 139-day strike, according to a report released Tuesday. The rancorous strike ended with a new contract that made it significantly harder for workers to get health insurance. Coverage of union workers fell from 94 percent to 54 percent, fueled by higher turnover and longer waiting periods for eligibility, the Center for Labor Research and Education at University of California at Berkeley found in the report. Some 88,537 grocery workers in Southern California belong to United Food and Commercial Workers. Researchers had expected coverage to drop to between 48 percent and 67 percent of members, said Berkeley research economist Arindrajit Dube. “Everyone is trying to balance meeting the needs of the employees and at the same time allowing the companies to remain competitive in a really challenging and competitive market,” Tessler said. Connie Leyva, president of the UFCW, said workers were forced to sign the contract after the long strike, but they were not happy about it. “Workers are willing to earn their health care, but employers are more concerned about their bottom line,” Leyva said. The long-term impact of the contract will be a shift to younger grocery workers who don’t stick around as long, said Dan Blake, director of the San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center at California State University Northridge. “They’ve made it into a shorter term job, where someone isn’t as likely to choose this as a career as before,” Blake said. In fact, annual turnover has increased from 19 percent to 32 percent, according to the report. And the number of teenage grocery workers has risen from about one in five to about one in four. The current grocery contracts expire in March. Some negotiations have already begun. The study findings are to be presented today at a meeting of the Commission on Los Angeles Grocery Industry and Community Health at 6 p.m. at the Cathedral Plaza at 555 West Temple Boulevard in Los Angeles. The study examined union actuarial data, union membership rolls and surveyed 755 active union members. Data from September 2006 was compared to data from September 2003. julia.scott@dailynews.com (818) 713-3735 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Researchers decided to study Southern California health care rates in the grocery industry because “health is one of our core areas,” Dube said. “We wanted to see what happened” after the strike. The findings reflect a shift away from employer provided health coverage, Dube said. “An on-going increase in health costs and weakening leverage of workers have led to a situation where job-based coverage is no longer a bedrock for providing health coverage in this country,” Dube said. But grocery workers here still contribute less than the national average, said Adena Tessler, a spokeswoman for Vons, Albertson’s and Ralphs. Some employees contribute nothing, while others pay between $5 and $20 every two weeks, Tessler said. Eligibility waiting periods of 12 months is not uncommon across the country, Tessler added. Some Chicago employees wait 12 months for health coverage, while some in New England wait 24 months. last_img read more

Court hearing delayed for driver in fatal crash

first_imgProsecutors also charged Brooker with driving under the influence causing injury, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving with great bodily injury and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He’s pleaded not guilty to the charges. A Whittier police officer saw a pickup leave the parking lot of a restaurant in the 9800 block of Santa Fe Springs Road. The officer said the pickup was moving at 90 mph and ran red lights. Brooker, who is a parolee, allegedly told CHP officers he took off because police were coming for him and he had to get away. A CHP officer also testified that Brooker admitted to drinking three beers but denied taking drugs. Prosecutors said he tested positive for marijuana and methamphetamine. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Pochettino got it wrong!’ – Spurs fans on manager’s selection in Europa League

first_img1 It was Mauricio Pochettino’s 100th match in charge of the north Londoners Defeat in Dortmund was Mauricio Pochettino’s 100th match in charge of Tottenham. The north Londoners – second in the Premier League – were humbled 3-0 in Germany – against the Bundesliga’s second-placed team. Pochettino’s selection raised eyebrows as he opted to rest the likes of Harry Kane and Eric Dier, starting fringe players Ryan Mason, Tom Carroll and Joshua Onomah. When his side return to domestic action at the weekend, they face bottom of the league Aston Villa. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring before Marco Reus’ second-half double sent Thomas Tuchel’s side towards the Europa League last eight. Spurs fans have always backed their manager, but they feel the 44-year-old got it wrong on this occasion – see below!last_img read more

State Tornado Drill Tuesday; Begin Severe Weather Preparedness

first_imgThe Washington County Emergency Management Agency is urging residents to prepare ahead to protect themselves and their loved ones from dangerous storms during Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana, which is observed March 18-24.The Indiana statewide Tornado Drill is scheduled for Tuesday, March 20 at 10:15am.Historically, Indiana has experienced some of the state’s worst thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding during the spring months. Washington County Emergency Management Agency suggests that households break their severe weather preparation into three parts: planning, preparing and practicing. Plan Purchase a weather radio whose label indicates that it is “all-hazard” and broadcasts alerts from the National Weather Service. Look for “NOAA” on the label (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Also look for the SAME Technology designation, which allows the radios to be programmed to specific counties and types of alerts. Know the difference between watches and warnings. A watch indicates a seriously increased possibility of a thunderstorm or tornado; a warning indicates that there IS a thunderstorm or tornado in the area. Ensure that household members know which local news media outlets to monitor for severe weather alerts, and to take those alerts seriously. Remember that national cable, satellite or streaming TV services may not carry localized weather alerts.Prepare Create a preparedness kit that includes food and water for three days, a first-aid kit, flashlights, batteries, small tools and any other important items that are needed. Prune tree limbs and secure outdoor items that could be tossed about by high winds. Keep cell phones charged and ensure all household members have several emergency contact numbers of friends and family members. Know which neighbors may have disabilities or mobility challenges, and be able to direct first responders to those who may need extra help.Practice Take household members – quickly but calmly – to the location they would move to in severe weather, ideally a basement. If a basement is not available, go to an interior room on the lowest level with no windows. Storm cellars also offer excellent protection. Practice moving under a sturdy table or desk, or covering up with pillows, blankets, coats or a mattress to protect the head and body from flying debris. Walk through potential evacuation routes, both from the home and the neighborhood. Conduct a family drill in which children pretend to call 911 and calmly talk with an emergency dispatcher (a family member or friend can be on the other end of the line, requesting appropriate information). Participate in the Statewide Tornado Drill on Tuesday, March 20, at 10:15 a.m. This drill provides a valuable opportunity for families, schools and businesses to practice their weather safety action plan. Although flooding came early this year, it is also an issue Hoosiers may encounter during the spring months. Driving on flooded roadways can often place Hoosiers and emergency response personnel in unnecessary danger. Never drive through flooded roadways, even if the water appears shallow.The road may have washed out under the surface of the water.For more information on preparing for severe weather, visit GetPrepared.in.gov. The number of tornadoes in Indiana each year is increasing to research by the Storm Prediction Center.  Indiana has average 24 tornadoes over the last 30-years.  If you look at a shorter time range, that number increases to 28 in the last decade.  In 2016, Indiana had 42 tornadoes.last_img read more
