Ozil fitness heartens Wenger ahead of Burnley clash

first_imgThe Germany international, who is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates Stadium and could open negotiations about a move away in January, came in for heavy criticism during the Gunners’ stuttering start to the campaign.But his improved recent form has demonstrated the player’s quality and Wenger attributes this to Ozil’s efforts on the training ground.“Mesut has worked hard and he is extremely fit at the moment as well, and that is why you see him sharp,”the Arsenal manager told the club’s official website.“The quality of his technical aspect is always there but he has added a more determined attitude and that is what you want from him.”Veteran French boss Wenger added: “Football today is very demanding in the mental and physical aspects and Mesut is in much better physical shape than he was before. “Every player wants to be a star and when they don’t manage to do it they are really disappointed but the best way to achieve it is to work hard and show the quality of performance that people expect from you.”– ‘Killing instinct of a snake’ –Last weekend’s win left Arsenal in sixth place, a point behind fourth-placed Tottenham with goal difference alone keeping the Gunners above Burnley.Wenger has been impressed by Sean Dyche’s side this season and is well aware of the test that lies ahead for his team. Wenger will restore his first choice line-up after making wholesale changes for the midweek Europa League defeat at FC Koln which did not prevent Arsenal from continuing in the competition as group winners.Danny Welbeck will return to the bench after a 45-minute appearance against the German side but Theo Walcott is out because of illness, while Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee.Burnley are boosted by the return of top goalscorer Chris Wood for their clash with Arsenal after the striker missed last week’s victory over Swansea City.Wood returned late from New Zealand international duty with a minor hamstring problem ahead of the win over the Swans, but has since got through a full week of training.Burnley manager Dyche has no fresh injury concerns, although England goalkeeper Tom Heaton is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder.Dean Marney (knee ligament) and Jonathan Walters (knee) have both returned to training but are not ready to be brought back into the matchday squad.Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash, Clarets boss Dyche said: “When you come across these clubs, it’s a case of how you are performing against some of the most powerful teams — not just the score, but the actual performance level.“Playing against these big teams is a measurement of where we are in relation to them.”Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsene Wenger believes Mesut Ozil’s recent resurgence is down to the Arsenal playmaker’s improved fitness levels.Ozil was outstanding in last weekend’s north London derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur and will again play a key role as Wenger’s side attempt to build on that win when they travel to face Burnley on Sunday. “They are the surprise package because before the season if you asked 100 people if Burnley would have 22 points at this stage of the season, 90 would have said no — and the 10 others would have been Burnley supporters,” he said.“They have won games with 25 percent or 30 percent possession, that means they are calm, they know what to do and they are patient with that killing instinct of a snake,” Wenger added. They put you to their face and then they bite you.”last_img read more

Development of Lodging Area at Fort Monmouth Advances

first_img• A change in density not to exceed 12 units per acre, down from 13 units per acre. • Development of a 50-foot waterfront esplanade along Parker Creek with a 12-foot-wide walkway to coordinate with the adjacent Allison Hall riverfront promenade. The Allison Hall parcel will include hotel, office, and retail. The two parcels are intended to complement each other, according to FMERA documents. • All townhouses will be rear-loaded with garages and driveways in the rear yards. • Construction of roadways, alleys or drive-aisles connecting Signal Avenue to serve the townhomes. • Two buildings on the site are on the National Register of Historic Places and therefore cannot be demolished. Somerset plans to rehabilitate both to accommodate the state’s 20 percent affordable housing mandate. • A community clubhouse, pool, fitness center, athletic facilities and other recreational amenities will be permitted as accessory uses. “This redevelopment is happening whether we like it or not,” Coffey said. “We shouldn’t be afraid of that but we shouldn’t be over-burdened either. The faster the fort is developed the better it is for Oceanport. This is a clarion call to other developers.” The vote approved amendments to the redevelopment plan of what is known as the Lodging Area along Parker Creek in Oceanport, where Somerset Development LLC plans to build 144 market rate townhomes and 36 affordable housing units on 15 acres. Prior to voting in the affirmative, Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey delivered a lengthy analysis and statement that began with him acknowledging, “This is a rather contentious item for Oceanport that will have a substantial impact.” “The fort will be different than the rest of Oceanport, just like Monmouth Racetrack is different from the rest of Oceanport,” he said, adding that fort redevelopment in the borough will have four liquor licenses, a fitness center complex and more. The property was first offered for sale by FMERA in December 2016 with bids received in March 2017. Somerset, formerly of Lakewood and now head-quartered in Holmdel, was the highest ranked proposer in compliance with FMERA’s overall reuse plan and will pay $17.5 million for the property. “This is an exciting projectfor the fort’s redevelopment infact, a once-in-a-generation typeproject,” Steadman said. “Realestate that has been off the gridfor 100 years so to speak, willcome roaring back, contributingmillions in tax dollars via a newand beautiful neighborhood forOceanport by a developer with agreat track record proposing anoutstanding housing communityalong the river.” FORT MONMOUTH – The next major residential development on Fort Monmouth, totaling up to 180 dwellings, is moving forward following a unanimous vote by members of the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) May 23. Prior to the vote, the proposed amendments were reviewed by Oceanport officials including the borough engineer and members of the environmental commission, the planning board, the police department and emergency services. Highlights of the revised redevelopment scenario include: The next step in the process is for Somerset to prepare plans for review by the Oceanport Planning Board, said Bruce Steadman, FMERA executive director. “It’s an unfair burden on Oceanport, but Oceanport lost the battle on zoning with FMERA 10 years ago,” he said. “We have a difference of opinion on whether this is good or bad for Oceanport. I have a different view of what’s going on at the fort than the majority of my council.” Coffey recently announced he is running for reelection on an independent ticket this year. In support of his vote, Coffey cited “close to $2 million” in tax revenue for the borough from all redevelopment projects within its borders. “There isn’t one instance where fort properties sold for less than the assessment,” he said. “The impact on the school system is minimal. There will be school-age kids coming in with the rental units, but we do have room to absorb children due to declining enrollment. Affordable housing is the lay of the land and we have to deal with it.” He said new residents in those units will include the families of nurses, firefighters, cops and teachers. By Laura D.C. Kolnoski The 1,126-acre fort comprises portions of Eatontown, Oceanport and Tinton Falls. A total of 720 residential units is mandated within the 420-acre Oceanport section once the redevelopment of the former U.S. Army base is completed. Coffey said Oceanport will eventually absorb about 560 more residents. Somerset, owned by Ralph Zucker, bought and refurbished the former Bell Labs in Holmdel, now known as Bell Works. The firm estimates it will create approximately 231 temporary construction jobs and one permanent full- or part-time job by the project’s completion, or pay a penalty of $1,500 for each permanent job not created, as per FMERA rules.last_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1

first_imgPhilippe Coutinho equalised for Liverpool in the final seconds of the first half at Stamford Bridge, where Ramires had put Chelsea ahead after just four minutes.Ramires, who signed a new four-year contract this week, got in front of Alberto Moreno to head home Cesar Azpilicueta’s left-wing cross – his fourth goal of the season.The Brazilian lined up in midfield alongside John Mikel Obi, with Cesc Fabregas dropped to the substitutes’ bench where he was joined by Nemanja Matic, who was left out despite being available again after a ban.Diego Costa was passed fit for the Blues, having hobbled off during the midweek defeat at Stoke after taking a knock to his ribs.Liverpool on the other hand are playing without a recognised striker but have looked a threat and Asmir Begovic had to be alert to deny Adam Lallana after the Reds midfielder had been found by James Milner’s cross.Begovic also gathered a header from Lucas – again after a cross by Milner – as Jurgen Klopp’s side continued to press.But the Chelsea keeper was beaten when Coutinho collected Roberto Firmino’s pass and cleverly evaded Ramires before curling into the far corner despite John Terry’s desperate attempt to block the shot.Chelsea: Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Amelia, Baba, Matic, Fabregas, Kenedy, Falcao, Remy.Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino.Subs: Bogdan, Lovren, Benteke, Allen, Ibe, Teixeira, Randall.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Denver Pot Growers Help Boost Power Use

first_imgPlants need lots of lightJeffrey Ackermann, director of the state’s Energy Office, told The Post Colorado’s energy use has been increasing by 1% to 2% a year, partly in response to a growth in population. The increased number of growing houses is a contributor.Plants cultivated indoors need artificial light in order to stimulate growth, and the lights produce a lot of heat, which in turn ramps up the demand for air conditioning.One possible answer are adjustable light-emitting diodes, which don’t produce as much heat as conventional bulbs. Grow houses that installed them could lower their demand for AC, and cut energy use. Tests are underway to see if the LEDs can be deployed without harming the plants, a spokesman for the utility Xcel said.Citing a study by the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, UtilityDive.com said the electricity needed to grow a module of four plants is about the same as what’s needed to run 29 refrigerators.Last year, Boulder County, Colorado, just to the west of Denver began imposing a 2.16 cents per kWh surcharge on pot growers to help offset greenhouse gas emissions for which they were responsible. Marijuana growers in Denver, Colorado, are responsible for nearly half of the city’s growth in power consumption, and they’re making it tough for the city to meet its energy efficiency goals.The state’s marijuana grow houses, many of which are located in Denver, are using as much as 200 million kilowatt-hours of electricity a year, according to a report published by The Denver Post. In Denver alone, the 354 growing facilities used about 121 kWh of electricity in 2013, an increase of 35 million kWh, or 35%, over 2012.The surge in power use is complicating Denver’s efforts to cap consumption at 2012 levels, and city officials sought guidance earlier this month from the U.S. Department of Energy at a forum in nearby Golden, Colorado.“It’s a big issue for us,” said Sonrisa Lucero, described by The Post as a strategist. “We really do need some assistance in finding some good technology.”The irony is that assistance could be coming from the federal government, which considers marijuana illegal under federal law despite its acceptance for medicinal use in nearly half the states in the country and recreational use in several others, including Colorado. Energy Undersecretary Franklin Orr said the government would “promote best practices and provide technical help though an Office of Technology Transitions,” the newspaper said.last_img read more
