first_imgI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Hudson-Odoi is absolutely wasted at Chelsea, same with Ampadu, they’re better off leaving. I support the academy, but it really is a massive waste of time.— Joe (@Joe_blues25) October 4, 2018 BEST OF REVEALED Chelsea have the best youth in Europe and Sarri hasn’t used either Ampadu or Hudson Odoi yet again. This is unnecessary and unacceptable from Maurizio Sarri.— Pys (@CFCPys) October 4, 2018 Ok, Chelsea fans want me to be negative so that’s what I’ll do…Emile Smith-Rowe (18) just scored for Arsenal…but Hudson-Odoi can’t even make Chelsea’s bench vs Vidi FC.#Ballack4DoF— Alex Goldberg (@AlexGoldberg_) October 4, 2018 REVEALED Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won No Hudson-Odoi again? Really really disappointed in that.— Uber Chelsea FC 🏆 (@UberCheIseaFC) October 4, 2018 It is a move that has baffled many fans on social media. Hudson-Odoi was electric in pre-season and Maurizio Sarri decided not to loan him out because he was seen as a valuable squad member.Vidi currently sit third in the Hungarian League and you’d think this would be the perfect chance to give the winger some game time.Ruben Loftus-Cheek DOES start for the Blues at Stamford Bridge and Ethan Ampadu makes the bench, but many were still less than pleased.Here are the best tweets: Emery uses the Europa League to give Emile Smith-Rowe (18) game time & he scores his first professional goal for Arsenal.Callum Hudson-Odoi is at a more advanced stage of his development & was one of Chelsea’s best players in pre-season, yet he’s not even picked as a sub. Poor.— Premier League Panel (@PremLeaguePanel) October 4, 2018 Hudson Odoi won’t sign a contract at this rate, you can’t excuse playing pedro and Willian against a team 3rd in the Hungarian league.

first_imgHi all,Thank you for the great response I received from last week’s blog! I was overwhelmed!I will try and answer a few problems. One reader asked: my retriever leaks urine whenever he gets excited in the house, any advice?Well first of all I would recommend you get her checked out with the vet just to make sure that she doesn’t have an infection of any sort. This can be done with a culture check on her urine. If they come back clear and she is all healthy then it sounds like she seems to “leak” when she gets excited. To help avoid this, try not to pet her when you arrive back from somewhere and get visitors to ignore her when they visit until she has calmed down and gone to lie down or is not so hyper. This can be controlled with guidance. If you need further help, feel free to call me directly and I will explain further exercises for your dog as I may need further information if it’s a behavioural problem.Another one asked: My puppy keeps biting.. how do I stop it?This is a common problem when getting a pup. Pups don’t have bite inhibition and this has to be taught. If your pup bites your hand, try letting out a high pitched squeal rather than scolding the pup because when the pup was in the litter and maybe was rough, the mother would let out a squeal to let the pup know its hurt her so by replicating the process the natural way you will stop the problem. On another note, it was brought to my attention that there are photographs circulating around Facebook which depict cubes of cheese with thumb tacks in them. This photograph was originally from an incident in Italy and there was also an incident in South London 18 months ago. Please be informed that nothing like this has been reported here in Donegal. Obviously, be very careful when taking your dogs out in parks and on the beach as people are not all pet friendly and their litter can be dangerous to dogs. Watch out on beaches especially for things like hooks which have floated on shore from fishing boats or bones which can get stuck in their throats.Any questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to help in whatever direction I can.Email me on you next week,Clare Boyle is a fully qualified and accredited dog trainer.

first_imgBrentford head coach Dean Smith believes defender Emmanuel Onariase can compete for a first-team spot.Onariase, 19, was brought in from West Ham and was the Bees’ only signing in January as they failed to land a senior replacement for centre-back James Tarkowski, who was sold to Burnley.But Smith insists teenager Onariase has all the attributes to fight for a place alongside Harlee Dean, Jack O’Connell and Yoann Barbet.He said: “He’s a ball-playing centre-back who will go and compete as well. He fits the mould of the football club of players we’re looking for.“He’s a young player, he’s learning the game as he’s going, but he’s been training regularly with West Ham’s first-team squad, I think that gets overlooked slightly.“Anybody who knows my history will know that I’m not afraid of throwing young players in if I think they’re quite capable.”See also:Bees snap up West Ham defenderBrentford’s Tarkowski seals move to BurnleyBrentford boss not concerned by lack of January signingsSwift admits he is uncertain of futureSaunders signs new deal at BrentfordBamford backed to shine at Norwich by Chelsea team-mate SwiftFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgIn this scene from HBO’s successful True Detective, editor Meg Reticker discusses how the 8th episode differed from the rest of the series in terms of it’s more linear structure, compared to the back and forth of other episodes. Check out this previous post for more True Detective insights.“There are times when you have doubts, are we really going to hold this take? And you have to believe in, that it’s really going to air that way.”  – Meg Reticker The video editors of television’s most popular shows offer a wealth of insight into how they solve their most challenging edits.If you’re a fan of House of Cards, True Detective, Nurse Jackie or The Americans, then you’ll love these insights from some of television’s best editors on solving challenging edit problems. All of these clips were recorded at a recent Sight, Sound and Story event produced by The Manhattan Edit Workshop.In the first clip you can hear ACE editor Cindy Mollo describe how a scene was reworked in House Of Cards from her first cut to the final broadcast episode. The challenge was having to ask Kevin Spacey to re-do his performance and therefore re-shoot and re-work the scene. But as Cindy says…“It just cut like butter, he’s so professional and it just raised everyone else’s game on set.” – Cindy Mollo ACE Gary Levy the ACE editor of Nurse Jackie, talks through the challenge of having to seamlessly combine two different emotional tones, as well as frame-rates, in a nuanced episode of the show. This is a great example of the editor’s common challenge of adapting an idea that didn’t quite work out in the shooting process into something that really plays.“Even those it’s a comedy, it’s incredibly serious. There’s a lot of technical editing choices being made there. Especially with tone and with those slow-mos.” – Gary Levy ACEcenter_img In this last clip from The Americans, Michael Berenbaum ACE describes how he had to change the musical score to an already cut scene at the last minute. But with a little assistance from the composer and a lot of luck, everything worked out.“I was told you can’t use that music, you have to use this Pete Townsend song that was recorded for another show. And my first thought was “How is that ever going to work?” – Michael Berenbaum ACElast_img read more

first_imgIt’s hard to sleep in outer space. On the International Space Station (ISS), the sun rises every 90 minutes when the station circles Earth. Space suits can be uncomfortable, too: After landing on the moon in 1969, Buzz Aldrin reported getting only “a couple of hours of mentally fitful drowsing” due to the noise and the cold. Now, a new study published online today in The Lancet Neurology shows the extent of sleep deprivation among astronauts. Researchers tracked the sleep patterns of 85 crew members aboard the ISS and space shuttle and found that despite an official flight schedule mandating 8.5 hours of sleep per night, they rarely got more than five. In fact, getting a full night’s rest was so difficult that three-quarters of shuttle mission crew members used sleep medication, and sometimes entire teams were sedated on the same night. Although, unlike astronauts from Aldrin’s day, crew members now sleep in quiet, dark chambers, lack of gravity itself may contribute to the problem. Given that sleep deprivation contributes to up to 80% of aviation accidents, it’s important to better understand why sleep is so difficult in space, the authors say.last_img read more
