Manchester United boss Mourinho led Inter to the treble of Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup titles in 2010, and also won the league title with the club in 2009.“You have to stop it. I’ve been here for two days, and he made Inter history,” said Spalletti, speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Italian Cup game against Serie C side Pordenone at the San Siro.“I can’t come close, so do me a favour: don’t put me close to him. Mourinho knows too that it doesn’t stack up,” added Spalletti.Spalletti is in his first season at Inter but won the Italian Cup twice with Roma in 2007 and 2008 and two Russian league titles with Zenit St Petersburg.He said he was expecting a tricky last-16 Cup clash against Pordenone who eliminated Serie A side Cagliari in the last round.“Pordenone represent a real danger. We saw it in their game against Cagliari and we all know how good a side Cagliari are, how difficult it was for us against them.”The Italian Cup last 16 matches will be played throughout December and include six top-flight clashes, including Napoli against Udinese and holders Juventus against Genoa.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Luciano Spalletti’s Inter Milan are the only unbeaten team in Serie A this season © AFP/File / MIGUEL MEDINAMILAN, Italy, Dec 11 – Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti admitted Monday that he was embarrassed by constant comparisons with the Serie A club’s former treble-winning coach Jose Mourinho.Spalletti’s side are the only unbeaten team in Serie A this season and sit top of the league a point ahead of Napoli with six-time defending champions Juventus two points behind in third.
A south Donegal-based county councillor has urged the government to examine proposals on how to tackle rural crime in order to help protect rural communities.Cllr Jordan was speaking after an increase in incidents of rural crime in many areas right across the county in recent months.The Sinn Fein councillor said the closure of garda station was making in rural towns feel unsafe. He said: “As many of us know all too well, the issue of rural crime has become a real scourge across huge swathes of Donegal, as demonstrated by the recent spate of house robberies and business break-ins.“People deserve to feel safe in their communities, unfortunately – in recent times – due to a reduction in Garda visibility and increases in certain types of crime, this is not the case.“People in many rural areas of Donegal feel isolated and vulnerable and we’ve witnessed very significant incidences of property crime combined with significant increases in burglary and the theft of farm machinery and equipment.“We’ve also seen the closure of many small Garda Stations in rural towns and villages, while the numbers of community Gardaí under Fine Gael Governments has fallen by 35% since 2010 across the state as a whole,” he added. “The Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner need to step up to the mark, to provide the resources and get the Gardaí out on the beat to give people peace of mind.”‘Rural crime has become a real scourge across Donegal’ – Councillor was last modified: May 10th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
The pilot at the controls of Asiana Flight 214 says he was “very concerned” about landing a Boeing 777 visually at San Francisco International Airport, without the aid of a glide-slope indicator (ILS). The ILS helps pilots monitor descent to the runway. The revelation comes in a 139-page Operations Group Factual Report released by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board in conjunction with a hearing in Washington, DC. While the ILS was not operative guide lights called PAPIs (precision approach path indicators ) were working. These give a visual que with four reds too low and four whites too high.Thirty five of Trainee Captain Lee Kang Kuk’s 9,700 flight hours had been spent flying the 777. The aircraft he was piloting late morning July 6, 2013 struck a seawall just short of Runway 28L at San Francisco International Airport. Three of the 291 passengers died, while 199 were taken to hospital. All told 11 crewmembers were hurt.While the official cause of the accident won’t be known until NTSB publishes its report, investigators are honing in on human factors. overreliance on technology, culture and communication as pivotal in this accident.So might be the operation, and crew understanding of, the 777’s auto-throttle feature.Incredibly; – Lee knew the glide-slope indicator was inoperative. But because other pilots were doing visual approaches, the report says “he could not say he could not do” one.– Lee told investigators he was blinded for a brief moment while on approach. Why no sunglasses? It would have been impolite to don them when flying with his PM, the pilot monitoring his actions.– Lee didn’t break off the approach and initiate a “go-around” maneuver on his own because “normally only in our Korean culture the one step higher level the final decision people he did he decide the going around thing. It’s very important thing. As a first officer (co-pilot) or the low level people they dare to think about the going around thing. It’s very hard…The instructor pilot got the authority. Even [if] I am [in] the left [command] seat, this is very hard to explain, that is our culture.”Information from Flight 214’s cockpit voice recorder shows that 16.7 second before the 777’s tail slams into the tarmac an unidentified voice in the cockpit says, “It’s [the aircraft] low.” Only 3.9 seconds before impact the cockpit is filled with the rattling sound of a “stick-shaker,” signaling the onset of an aerodynamic stall.Precisely 2.5 seconds before ground and aircraft meet Captain Lee Jungmin, the man monitoring Captain Lee Kang Kuk airmanship, says, “Oh # go around.” It is too late.Life-saving CRM, or Cockpit Resource Management training, stresses communication, collaboration and individual initiative. Captain Lee Kang Kuk told investigators he had taken CRM training “frequently.” In a post-crash interview, they asked Captain Lee Kang Kuk if his airline encouraged junior pilots to “speak up if they felt uncomfortable about something.” He responded “yes.”The statements made by the pilots demolish the widely held belief that cockpit cultural problems and the loss of face that plagued many Asian based airlines in the 1980s and 1990s had been swept aside.The investigation is continuing. In response to the revalations AirlineRatings has removed its safety rating of Asiana pending a more detailed investigation of the airline’s procedures.The NTSB has released the video below of the crash.
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market audrey watters A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#start#startups Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts XING founder Lars Hinrichs has launched a new pre-seed investment company, HackFwd. Although HackFwd provides financial support and mentorship to tech startups, HackFwd is not an incubator. In other words, rather than expecting startups to relocate to the company’s headquarters in Germany, HackFwd meetups will be distributed – something that might be very beneficial for European startups.According to the website, “We looked carefully at current VC models and realized they didn’t really cater to very early stage businesses. VCs can’t support small investments, which leaves a finance gap. Also, VCs don’t have the time or expertise to give strategic or creative input. This leaves an advice gap.”In addressing both this finance and advice gap, HackFwd provides startups up to 191,000 in funding, as well as support with legal and administrative requirements, talent-search, promotion and marketing. The goal: “Our start-up and support process accelerates the route to beta, profitability, and success.” Founders retain 70% equity with 30% going to HackFwd. While this is higher than some similar programs (YCombinator and TechStars take around 6%), the HackFwd program lasts a year, rather than only a few months. In an interesting twist, 3% of HackFwd’s cut is returned to the founders, for them to distribute in turn to advisors who helped them along the way.In their desire to help support “Europe’s most passionate geeks,” HackFwd will compete with other early stage investment opportunities in Europe, including SeedCamp. And even if you aren’t a European startup in search of some early-stage funding, a visit to the HackFwd website is well worth a visit, just to look at their infographic on the startup feedback loop (excerpted below).
