Sarri confirms HudsonOdoi will remain at Chelsea

first_imgChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri revealed that he has been assured by the club board that Callum Hudson-Odoi will not be going anywhere this month.The 18-year-old winger has been strongly linked with a switch to Bayern Munich after the German club’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed their interest earlier this month.Chelsea have reportedly turned down three bids from Bayern and a transfer request from Hudson-Odoi himself.The youngster is understood to be frustrated with his role at Chelsea this season with just 61 minutes of Premier League action under his belt, despite starring in cup games.But a delighted Sarri is confident now that Hudson-Odoi will be going nowhere and expressed his satisfaction with the young star’s development.“The club told me in this window he will remain with us for sure, and very probably also in the next,” said Sarri on the club website. “I am very happy with this.“I don’t have the power to sign new contracts here. On the pitch, I am really very happy with him. He is improving. He will be the future of our club, and the future of English future.“I am not frustrated. As I said before, on the pitch he is doing very well, in training and in matches.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“I am very happy with him, I’m not very happy with the situation, of course, but I know very well every big team here in England has the same problem.He added: “It’s not easy to keep these young players.“He is, of course,e one of the best 18-year-olds in Europe, so it’s very difficult, but the club told me he is out of the market for sure [now], and probably he will be out of the market in July.“I don’t know if he is happy with that, but I can say what I see on the pitch. And on the pitch at the moment he is fantastic.”The Blues will next take on Bournemouth in a Premier League match at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night.Tomorrow, the Blues head to Bournemouth! 👊 pic.twitter.com/AcbLeeCKJa— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) January 29, 2019last_img read more

Avengers Endgame new trailer arrives full of MCU flashbacks

first_imgRocket Raccoon and War Machine better be awesome together in Avengers: Endgame. Marvel Studios The new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, which Marvel Studios released Thursday, offers a few more hints of our next trip to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on April 26.Thanos may have snapped half the population to dust in Avengers: Infinity War, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over.The trailer opens with a stranded-in-space Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recording a message for his Earth-bound fiancee Pepper Potts, reminiscing about his first days as Iron Man and falling in love with her. (Still no sign of Pepper in the current timeline, however.) After the title card, the trailer ends with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) meeting Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), who isn’t fazed by his hammer tricks, as she smirks at the god.”I like this one,” he says, suggesting that the MCU powerhouses will get along just fine. TV and Movies Culture 4 Update: After an uproar over the lack of Danai Gurira’s (Okoye) name in the top billing, Marvel Studios released a new official poster.  It kicks off a series of mostly black-and-white flashbacks to the various Avengers’ past adventures — like Steve Rogers’ pre-Captain America World War 2 life and the now destroyed Asgard — and the Snappening by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Fascinatingly, the only color we see in these parts is red (like the beginning of the first Endgame trailer).Hawkeye/Ronin and Black Widow sport a variety of haircuts in the color shots, hinting at either a fashion crisis or that we’ll be hopping to different points in the timeline. Hawkeye’s flashbacks include a look at him teaching his daughter how to shoot an arrow (presumably before she’s dusted and he goes dark?). Some publications have speculated this could instead be Kate Bishop, Hawkeye’s protege, as Marvel possibly introduces Young Avengers — but if you look closely in trailer at 0:38, there are other Barton family members in the background. Is it impossible to think Marvel would rewrite comic canon for a film? Absolutely not, but signs point to this being where Clint was pre-Snappening. (Quick, someone comb through all the released Endgame footage and let us know how wrong we are!)”The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do, is to start over,” says the late Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) — a line she uttered in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Appropriately enough, we get a shot of Cap carrying her coffin. Marvel Studios We then see Cap, Nebula, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, War Machine, Iron Man (who clearly makes it home) and Black Widow in fancy, matching white Avengers outfits. Could they be preparing for a trip to space … or perhaps these are the rumored fancy suits for a trip to the Quantum Realm? 26 Photos Avengers: Endgame trailer takes you back to the start She should have been up there all this time.

British parliament votes to ask EU for Brexit delay

first_imgBritain`s prime minister Theresa May waves as she leaves 10 Downing Street in London on 14 March ahead of a further Brexit vote. Photo: AFPBritain’s parliament on Thursday voted to ask the European Union to delay Brexit until at least June and head off a chaotic end to their 46-year partnership in two weeks.But lawmakers also rejected a call to use that time to hold a second Brexit referendum — a blow to the hopes of a large swath of Britons who still dream of keeping their European identities.The UK is barrelling towards the 29 March Brexit deadline with no approved EU withdrawal agreement and a prime minister who appears to have lost control over her bickering cabinet.Anxious businesses are pleading for action and US president Donald Trump waded in to pronounce himself “surprised to see how badly it has all gone”.A sense of chaos filled the House of Commons this week as lawmakers held a series of votes on ideas about what they could do next.MPs have twice rejected the deal struck by prime minister Theresa May’s with the other 27 EU nations — in January and on Tuesday.They voted on Wednesday not to leave without an agreement but still lacked a clear roadmap on the way forward three years after Brexit was launched in a bitterly divisive referendum.The plan they all finally agreed on — after turning down four other proposals — was submitted by May herself: to ask EU leaders to simply push Brexit back.The motion also supported holding a third vote early next week on May’s twice-rejected deal.A revised tally showed it passing by a 413-202 margin despite the majority of her own party — and seven of her 28 cabinet members — voting against.May had already lost her voice earlier in the week and did not stand up to speak before the chamber after all the voting had wound down for the day.”Parliament’s rejection of no deal and desire for an extension shows there is still some common sense in Westminster,” the influential CBI business lobby tweeted after the vote.”But without a radically new approach, business fears this is simply a stay of execution.”Another voteA bumpy “no deal” exit on 29 March will still happen if May’s strategy is voted down for a third time and the EU 27 fail to approve an extension.EU leaders have said they would consider any request from London.But they also want to know how long the extension would be — and what it would be used for — before they meet in Brussels in a week’s time.May’s plan is to hold a third vote on her agreement with Brussels by Wednesday.Approval would then see her ask for the delay until 30 June so that the treaty can be ratified.But she warns that her deal’s rejection next week could see Brexit postponed for much longer.A bigger delay would also see Britain take part in European Parliament elections in May — bizarrely re-immersing the country in EU politics after Brexit was originally meant to have gone into effect.Rethinking BrexitEU Council chief Donald Tusk said Thursday that the bloc could approve a long postponement “if the UK finds it necessary to rethink its Brexit strategy and build consensus around it”.He reflected Brussels’ long-standing position that a closer relationship is possible if May abandons her opposition to staying in the EU customs union.May’s deal has been blocked chiefly by disagreement over the so-called Irish “backstop” — a measure to keep trade flowing and avoid friction at the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney mentioned the possibility on Thursday of Brexit being pushed back until the end of 2020.”It would give a long reflection period for the British political system to look at how they want to approach Brexit again,” he said.No second referendum?Parliament’s rejection of a second Brexit referendum reflected a broader debate in UK society about how democratic such a vote would be.Only 85 MPs voted in favour and 334 voted against.People’s Vote and other pro-EU campaign groups have been organising periodic marches across London in support of a second vote that could potentially undo the first one’s results.One rally in October drew around half a million people and was joined by London mayor Sadiq Khan.But the group knew it lacked sufficient support in parliament Thursday and withdrew its formal support of the motion before it came up for a vote.Labour backs the idea in principle but asked its MPs to abstain.last_img

Interim president/CEO Raghu Rau will assume the role of vice chairperson.Shull, formerly CEO of the Weather Channel and a longtime Dish Network exec, comes on board after TiVo earlier this month announced plans to split its product and patent-licensing businesses into two independent companies. His appointment comes 11 months after Enrique Rodriguez stepped down as TiVo’s president and CEO just eight months after the ex-AT&T Entertainment Group exec took the job to join John Malone’s Liberty Global cable company as CTO.Rovi, a provider of entertainment metadata and related services, acquired TiVo for $1.1 billion in 2016 and adopted the DVR pioneer’s name. Both Rovi and legacy TiVo have a history of aggressively pursuing licensing deals with — and litigation against — pay-TV and video companies. Currently, TiVo is locked in a patent licensing dispute with Comcast. Popular on Variety On the product side, the company has continued to offer a line of consumer devices, but has built a much bigger business selling software and services to pay-TV operators as well as internet-video providers. About 22 million subscriber households worldwide use TiVo-based TV technologies, according to the company.Jim Meyer, TiVo’s chairman, touted Shull’s “strong track record of driving value creating strategic outcomes and operational transformations, most recently at the Weather Channel and before that at Dish… He also has significant M&A experience and is the right person to lead TiVo’s separation process, which we believe will result in significant value for our stockholders.”TiVo’s 2018 revenue dropped 16%, to $695.9 million, and it reported a net loss of $349 million (which included a $269 million goodwill impairment charge for its product division in the fourth quarter). On Thursday, the company slightly raised expectations for fiscal 2019 versus previous guidance, projecting revenue of $644 million-$660 million (versus $640 million-$654 million) and a loss before taxes of $72 million-$80 million (versus a net loss before taxes of $75 million-$87 million).Shull most recently served as the CEO of the Weather Channel cable network, acquired last year by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios. While at the Weather Channel from 2015-18, Shull separated the company’s digital assets from its TV business, leading to the sale of the digital businesses to IBM in 2016.Prior to the Weather Channel, Shull worked at Dish and sister company EchoStar for 10 years in various roles, including EVP and chief commercial officer, SVP of programming, managing director of Asia Pacific, and VP of operations.
