Germany international Mertesacker is expecting Arsenal to come out all guns blazing as they tackle a run of games which could well shape their season. “We feel very bad, disappointed with our performance right from the start. To be honest, it is one of the worst setbacks of this season,” Mertesacker said to Arsenal Player. “It was just not good enough to compete at that level. “We have the opportunity to respond quickly on Wednesday and we have to remind ourselves what we have done from Manchester City (when Arsenal lost 6-3) until now. “That is at stake, and to show that responsibility for ourselves and for the pride of our club.” Arsenal now have four home matches in succession, and will get a chance to avenge their defeat by Liverpool when Brendan Rodgers’ men head to north London for an FA Cup fifth-round tie on Saturday ahead of the visit of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Mertesacker is confident the Gunners faithful can help lift the team. “We have huge games coming up but we can rely on our fans that they will push us again,” he said. “I think the team will give something back in the next couple of weeks.” Midfielder Mikel Arteta has described the Anfield defeat as feeling “like a car crash”. Gunners boss Wenger believes his wounded squad can restore some pride against United. “I am confident we will respond in a positive matter on Wednesday night,” he told the club’s official website. “I think it is a shame that we couldn’t turn up with a better performance. “After 10 minutes we conceded two goals on set-pieces, that just shows that the level of concentration was not there and that when nobody takes responsibility in these kind of situations it is always a bad sign. “It is about how well we do at home at the Emirates, of course starting on Wednesday. “Recently we have been very good defensively at home and offensively as well, that is what we want to show on Wednesday night.” Arsenal are confident the proposed industrial action by London Underground staff will not force Wednesday’s match to be postponed. However, the club are urging supporters to allow more time for their journey, which will be impacted by severely reduced services on the Piccadilly and Victoria lines which serve the Emirates Stadium, although neighbouring London Overground and mainline stations such as King’s Cross are scheduled to be open. A club statement read: “Supporters are advised to make their way to and from Emirates Stadium by other means of transport as any Tube services to stations near the stadium are likely to be very limited. “Supporters are encouraged to consider walking to and from Emirates Stadium from King’s Cross, St Pancras, Liverpool Street and Euston, where they can connect with National Rail and local bus services.” The Gunners were humiliated 5-1 by Liverpool on Saturday – when they trailed 4-0 after just 20 minutes – and as a result where knocked off the top of the Barclays Premier League table by Chelsea. Arsene Wenger’s side, however, have the chance to make amends swiftly when inconsistent United head to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. Defender Per Mertesacker has challenged his team-mates to show pride in wearing the Arsenal shirt by responding to their Anfield horror show with a match-winning performance against Manchester United.

The new HD Golden Gate signal also will feature three new cameras: one on the starting gate, a camera near the walking ring to enhance paddock coverage and a scenic camera. The track will implement a new HD graphics package, similar in format to the one currently in use at Santa Anita, but with a style unique to Golden Gate. More cameras will be added in the future. On-track patrons will be able to watch Golden Gate’s races on 500 new HD televisions that have been installed on the Turf Club tables, in the Top of the Stretch betting carrels and throughout the Golden Gate facility. The HD Golden Gate Fields signal will be contractually produced by the track’s longtime vendor, Pegasus Communications, which also produces the HD signal for Santa Anita Park. Pegasus and Santa Anita were honored as 2015’s Outstanding Simulcast at the International Simulcast Conference. ALBANY, CALIF. – Golden Gate Fields on March 17 will begin to broadcast its races using high-definition cameras and video, The Stronach Group has announced. “Taking the Golden Gate broadcast signal HD is another example of The Stronach Group’s continuing commitment to long-term racing in California,” said Joe Morris, Senior Vice President of West Coast Operations. “Golden Gate, with its scenic location and near year-round racing, is made to be seen in HD and we are excited to make this investment in the bayside track’s future.” Live racing at Golden Gate Fields, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, generally is conducted four days a week on a Thursday-Sunday schedule.

12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… There are many different services that let you sign up to get an email alert when your favorite band is coming to town, but UK-born SongKick keeps innovating and keeps finding more support for its efforts. A 2007 graduate of tech incubator program YCombinator, SongKick has raised $1.8 million in its 4th round of funding, according to an SEC filing posted online tonight.SongKick lets users collaborate to create a shared memory of all the live music shows they’ve attended, complete with multimedia and set lists. The company has said it wants to build something like IMDB for the musical history of musicians. Beyond alerts, ticket sales and a historical resource, SongKick’s biggest ticket to success has probably been its Application Programming Interface, which allows other partner websites to automatically display upcoming concert dates on artist pages. The biggest partner? Music industry approved YouTube sister-site Vevo, which started using SongKick to power its concert listings this summer. Tags:#music#news#web marshall kirkpatrick 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… This latest round of funding puts SongKick’s fundraising total at just under $7.5 million.The service’s basic concert alerts feature is something that a number of other companies provide. BandsInTown.com is often discussed as a SongKick competitor and offers an API as well as a Facebook app. Looking at that site’s design, though, makes me wonder whether it’s been acquired by SongKick, whether there’s a lazy web designer jumping from music company to music company, or some other explanation for the two sites to look remarkably similar. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Tottenham boss Pochettino: Liverpool have title advantage playing at Anfieldby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino fears new stadium delays will wreck their title bid.He feels Anfield gives Liverpool the advantage as his second-place side battle for glory.Liverpool beat Newcastle 4-0 at home on Boxing Day and Poch said: “I saw the highlights, the Anfield crowd are desperate to win and are showing their support to the team.“Anfield was amazing, every game Liverpool are at Anfield is a party and that sometimes makes a difference.”Pochettino and his players are still having to play matches at Wembley as their new £850million stadium — which was supposed to open in September — is not yet finished.Pochettino said: “We cannot ask more from our fans, they are doing a fantastic job. The circumstances of this period in the club, we need to be strong and we cannot complain.“It’s not easy to get to Wembley on public transport, it’s not easy.“Our fans tried to raise the atmosphere but in a 90,000 stadium we’re limited to 51,000. We had 45,000.“That is why when I was asked before, ‘Do you want to move into our new stadium as soon as it is ready?'”I said ‘Of course, as soon as possible,’ because it’s going to be a massive boost for the team. It’s going to be a place where the fans can help the team achieve more. There is no doubt.”
Twitter/@Bogs4NYLaremy Tunsil may be lucky that this year’s draft is in Chicago, and not New York City. An overzealous former prosecutor may have hopped state lines to bring him in after a hacker posted an old video of him smoking a bong out of a gas mask to his Twitter account.New Jersey Governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie joined WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Friday morning to discuss the draft, and spent a lot of time expressing his bemusement about the Tunsil situation. At one point, the former New Jersey Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer said that if he were still a prosecutor, he would have “gone in and cuffed” the Ole Miss offensive tackle. Buzzfeed’s Christopher Massie transcribed some of the more interesting parts of the appearance:“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”Earlier in the interview, Christie, who opposes marijuana legalization, said, “When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” adding, “I would’ve been all over it.”Christie also expressed sympathy towards Tunsil, saying, “Poor kid in that respect. I mean, he did it. But who’s the guy that hates him enough that they had access to the video and put it on. I mean, wow.”Here is the full interview: [Buzzfeed]
zoomImage Courtesy: Gasum Ltd LNG bunker vessel Coralius, operating on behalf of Finnish gas company Gasum, made its milestone 100th bunkering in late February.Gassum noted that Coralius reached this milestone in 18 months of operations, mainly in the North Sea and the Skagerrak area.Coralius was built by the Royal Bodewes in the Netherlands and is the first European-built LNG bunker and distribution vessel. It has a cargo capacity of 5,800 m3.Coralius delivers LNG through ship-to-ship bunkering at sea and in port. This has increased Gasum’s flexibility and responsiveness to vessels that require LNG but are unable to visit a terminal or a port.“With Coralius, we have been able to perform bunkering to different types of vessels, which is quite unique and demands us to be prepared for all types of vessels,” Kimmo Rahkamo, vice president of natural gas and LNG at Gasum, said. “The bunkering operations are swift and safe, and we have received great feedback from our customers. Coralius has definitely increased Gasum’s flexibility as an LNG supplier.”The company further said it expects an increase in the average amount of delivered stem, as it will perform bunkerings on shuttle tankers and other bigger vessels.
