Wenger believes Sanchez wants to stay at Arsenal

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesArsene Wenger has dismissed speculation linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Chelsea, insisting he believes both the Chilean and Mesut Ozil want to stay at Arsenal.Gunners boss Wenger was responding to reports in the Chilean media quoting Sanchez as saying he wanted to stay in London with a team that “fights for titles.”The comments have been portrayed as Sanchez, who is said to be a Blues transfer target, hinting that he wants a move to Stamford Bridge.“There is only one team in London, so he is happy,” Wenger joked.He added: “The interpretation is not always what they want to say. He says he wants to win the championship, and I can understand that completely.”The contracts of Sanchez and Ozil are due to expire next year and they are yet to agree new deals.Wenger said: “It is true we have not extended his (Sanchez’s) contract yet but I hope he will stay.“I personally believe that both of them want to stay and hope the club finds an agreement with them.”   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

College football players are college kids, so you would expect many of them to be rowdy, too, especially when they’re staying in a hotel. Mississippi State’s football players are apparently not, though. Bulldogs’ coach Dan Mullen recently received a letter from a Connecticut resident who stayed in the same Miami hotel as MSU during the Orange Bowl. It reflects extremely well on the Mississippi State football program. I was copied on this letter from a Conn. resident who stayed at @HailStateFB hotel during @OrangeBowl. #HailState pic.twitter.com/lGBKO0TDuL— Scott Stricklin (@stricklinMSU) June 26, 2015Mullen has to love receiving a letter like that.last_img read more

Buckeyes close out regular season with Big Ten split

The Ohio State women’s tennis team closed out the 2010 regular season this weekend winning one of two matches at home to finish at 18-8 overall and 5-5 in conference play.Coming off a hard-fought victory at Indiana the previous weekend, OSU welcomed the Wisconsin Badgers to Columbus Friday night for the first match of its final homestand.Able to carry over the momentum from the previous weekend, the Buckeyes made quick work of the overmatched Badger squad with a 7-0 victory.The convincing victory marked the team’s record-best ninth shutout of the year, surpassing its previous best of eight attained in both the 1978-1979 and 2006-2007 seasons.“It was a big match,” coach Chuck Merzbacher said. “We needed to get that win for Big Ten seeding and NCAA purposes, so that was an important match and fortunately we were able to get it.”Following Friday’s strong showing, the Buckeyes returned to the OSU Varsity Tennis Center on Sunday afternoon hoping to take down Goliath in the form of the No. 6 Northwestern Wildcats.Despite being backed by an enthusiastic, packed house, Northwestern proved to be too much to handle, downing the Buckeyes with relative ease 5-2.One of two seniors playing her final home match in scarlet and gray, Christina Keesey provided one of OSU’s few bright spots of the day downing her opponent in straight sets 7-6, 6-2.“Northwestern is a great team, and we knew we had to fight hard today,” Keesey said. “I was glad I was able to end the way I did, and the team battled as hard as we could so that’s all you can ask for.”With the regular season now behind them, the team has its sights set on Iowa City, where it will travel for the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday with high expectations.  “I was pretty pleased with the whole weekend,” Merzbacher said. “We competed pretty well and the Big Ten is wide open, so when we go to the Big Ten tournament I think we can play with anybody.” read more

Football Will Ohio State prove recent success is for real Well see

Redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) throws a pass in the first quarter against Nebraska in Memorial Stadium on Oct. 14. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe Ohio State team that lost to Oklahoma Week 2 does not look like the same team that strolled to easy victories against its last five opponents.Against Oklahoma, the Buckeyes appeared out of sync. Quarterback J.T. Barrett was missing his targets, the defense was biting on every play fake and nothing the Buckeyes did in the second half of the game went their way.Since the loss, both the offense and defense have clicked. Although against lesser opponents, the team cruised through its past five games.Playing against only its second real test of the season, how will Ohio State know which team will show up Saturday? Will it be the team that lost 31-16 in its home opener or is it the one that has since outscored opponents 266-56?Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said both the former and latter teams are no different, and this is still the same team with the same identity that entered the season.“It’s very clear who we are, who we’re always going to be, offensively and pretty much defensively,” Meyer said on Tuesday’s Big Ten coaches teleconference. “We didn’t execute very well, we didn’t coach very well. But identity, there’s never been a misunderstanding what that is around here. We’ve enhanced things.”Ohio State had the luxury of suffering its loss early enough in the season that it was able to address the issues the Sooners exposed.It will not have that luxury again.If the Buckeyes don’t execute well against Penn State, its hopes of a national championship will be dashed.The loss did a lot to prepare Ohio State for this upcoming matchup, however, and could play a role in avoiding another defeat. It gave Ohio State’s players an idea of flaws that needed to be addressed moving forward. It also put the Buckeyes on the brink of a lost season. With their backs to the wall, the players left Ohio Stadium that night knowing they had no more room for error and had to go all-out for everything if they hoped to have a shot at a title.“We learn a lot more from a loss than we do from a win,” redshirt senior defensive end Tyquan Lewis said. “We came back that next week and we just started working. Practice became more competitive, so everybody stepped up a little more.”Co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said it wasn’t that the practices became more challenging, but rather everything became more organized and better structured. “We’ve practiced better. We haven’t practiced harder, we’ve just had better structure, and I think I’ve done a better job of understanding what [Meyer] wants in our players and our staff is working the offense with a lot of enthusiasm in practice,” Wilson said.Based on the Buckeyes’ ease of victory, one could almost make the argument practices have extended into every Saturday. The disparity between Ohio State and its competition has been significant, and it has allowed the team to build up chemistry, figure out what works and what doesn’t without the consequence of making mistakes.Wilson said early in the season the offense in particular was still figuring one another out, learning the strengths of each player at its disposal.“We came into both of those games [against Oklahoma and Penn State] with really good players,” Wilson said. “I just think that first game, not by design, but we were not in the rhythm or the flow. We didn’t maybe prep. We were working hard, but maybe a little disjointed and getting things clean for offensive line and for quarterback and for a team to play with cohesion.”Now the offense is in sync. The players and coaches are all familiar with one another, and the time the team has had to not only receive additional practice from the bye week but also beat up on some weaker opponents built up confidence as well as chemistry among the players.“The offense as a whole is clicking the best it’s been in years. It’s clicking at the right moment,” redshirt senior center Billy Price said. “We’re hitting things. We’re timing things up nicely. We’re making sure we’re isolating and making sure that our players are on their players and making sure that our guys are in advantageous positions.”The offense has clicked against weaker opponents, but will it click when the clock hits 3:30 p.m. and Ohio State faces the No. 2 team in the nation with College Football Playoff hopes on the line?“Well we don’t know yet, do we?” Wilson said. “That’s why we’re playing.” read more

Hearing devices feel the vibes hide in your ear canal at CES

first_img $999 Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 Tags Some of the hearing aid products introduced at CES 2019 are still very expensive, but one starts at just $300. Here’s a look.Avnet Music: Not ImpossibleA wristband designed to help deaf people “hear” music at concerts Angela Lang/CNET While there are plenty of gadgets that transform sound into vibration, they’re mostly designed to enhance games or movies in the home. Avnet’s Music: Not Impossible is meant to be worn at music events. The inventors say that the wristband or the vest could be hired out by music venues or artists to the deaf to use. At a suggested cost of around $10 to $15 per concert, the device would then pulse in time with the music.The company showed footage of a Greta Van Fleet show it had organized where half of the audience was deaf and all people were wearing Music: Not Impossible products. The company said the devices allowed the crowd, deaf and hearing alike, to better experience the concert together.Eargo Neohearing-aids-ces-2019-9The Eargo Neo is designed to look like you’re not wearing a hearing aid. Angela Lang/CNET Eargo’s “invisible” hearing aid, the Neo, fits fully inside your ear canal. You cannot see the device even when you’re up close to the wearer, which should help people who don’t want the potential stigma wearing a hearing aid could bring. 27 Photos 2:46 $999 See It Apple iPhone XS CES 2019 Health and Wellness Share your voice 0 Boost Mobile $999 Gadgets See it $999center_img Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X Best Buy Though it’s not usually something you can buy at your local store, hearing aids and associated devices are nonetheless out in full force here at CES 2019. There’s a device designed to help the deaf experience music at concerts, a truly invisible hearing aid that goes deep in your ear canal and an improved Cochlear “bionic ear.”Hearing loss affects millions of Americans, especially older adults, and two out of three people over 70 have hearing issues. But only 20 percent of adults who have a hearing loss get a hearing aid, according to a report in CBS News. A new law, the Over the Counter Hearing Aid Act signed into law in 2017, is designed to increase access to hearing aid products — and a big part of that is reducing the price.  CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. Here’s what to expect. Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) 85 Photos See It CNET may get a commission from retail offers. The Neo is good for a full day of use (20 hours) and comes with an AirPod-like case to charge it overnight. To achieve the invisible look, each earpiece features a small cable at the end which a user grips to pull out. The aid comes with three modes of increasing strengths and the user taps each ear to change the mode.I tried the hearing aid and found it wasn’t uncomfortable in the way that some in-ear headphones like Etymotics are for me. I was able to change modes easily, and everything did seem clearer on the lowest settings. However one of my ears picked up more metallic noise from the crowded CES floor than the other.hearing-aids-ces-2019-8 Angela Lang/CNET The only real problem I had was in trying to remove it. In attempting to grab the cable I managed to push the device further in, which was very uncomfortable. “There is a trick to it”, the Eargo CEO told me, and after assuring me it wasn’t too far in he then fished it out for me with his fingers.The Eargo is a Class 1 medical device and while it isn’t available on insurance the company sells it for $2,750. The company also offers more affordable options from a little over a thousand dollars.Cochlear Nucleus 7hearing-aids-ces-2019-3The Cochlear implant restores hearing to the deaf. Angela Lang/CNET Unlike the other hearing aids I saw, the Cochlear “bionic ear” is an implant. It’s obviously not able to be “tried on” as the functioning part of the device wraps around inside your inner ear. Its purpose is to restore hearing to the profoundly deaf. The company introduced me to a woman who had the device implanted and she told me it had changed her life.The company highlighted the newest Nucleus 7 Sound Processor — which it says is “the world’s first and only Made for iPhone cochlear implant sound processor”. Users are able to communicate with the device via their phones over a low-power Bluetooth connection.The devices aren’t cheap, with the implant and associated therapy costing between $40,000 and $100,000 the staff at the Cochlear stand told me, but they added the device is covered under insurance in the US. The company has been offering the technology since it started in Australia in the ’70s while the bionic ear has been Stateside for almost 30, Cochlear said.Starkey Hearing Technologies Livio AIhearing-aids-ces-2019-6The Livio AI is the world’s first Healthable. Angela Lang/CNET The Livio AI loops over the back of the ear like a normal hearing aid but the main difference is that it has a bunch of sensors onboard. Billed as the world’s first Healthable, the Livio AI is able to detect falls and alert the user and/or family if there is no response. It can also do other health tracking such as physical activity and “cognitive health” in social situations. Depending on the users’ needs, the hearing aid can cost between $1,000 and $5,000.Zvox VoiceBud VB20zvox-vb20-voicebud-in-beigeThe Zvox VB20 is available for $300. Zvox While Zvox isn’t officially at CES 2019, it is showing off its latest hearing device at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. The VoiceBud VB20 hearing device is designed to be discrete, and features an onboard dual-microphone and associated phone app. Its 1-inch-long housing sits behind the ear and is connected to the earpiece by a translucent cable. The onboard battery is good for three to four days of use. The VB20 is available for $300.
