Ralph Hasenhuttl provides injury update on Lemina

first_imgSouthampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has provided an update regarding the injury picked up by Mario Lemina prior last weekend.Lemina had featured in 15 of Southampton’s last 16 games in the Premier League but was absent as the Saints recorded a shock 3-2 win over Arsenal on Sunday.Southampton hosted high-flying Arsenal, who were on a 22 match unbeaten streak, at the St. Mary’s and stunned the visitors when Danny Ings opened the scoring with a well taken header.Henrikh Mkhitaryan leveled matters for the Gunners almost immediately, before Ings headed the home team in front once again.Mkhitaryan looked to have earned at least a point for Arsenal when he pulled the scores level at 2-2 before a late Charlie Austin header ensured Hasenhuttl picked up the three points in his first game in charge at the St. Mary’s.Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.Speaking about Lemina’s absence after the win against Arsenal, Hasenhuttl said, according to 101GreatGoals:“Hopefully, not too serious. It’s about his stomach, it hurt him too much.”“If you can’t sprint 100 per cent, it’s better to say ‘no it doesn’t work’ and we have to put in someone else.”last_img read more

Union Budget 2015 Will Achieve Fiscal Deficit MidTerm Target of 3 Says

first_imgFinance Minister Arun Jaitley noted that while it is important to maintain the pace of bringing down the fiscal deficit, it must also be focused on growth and has thus decided to continue with the medium term consolidation target of 3% of the GDP.He added that a timetable by itself would not be of much help to achieve the target, noting that he would take three years, instead of the earlier two years, to reach the target of 3%.Over the next three fiscal years, starting 2015-16, the fiscal deficit target is set at 3.9%, 3.5% for 2016-17 and 3.0% for 2017-18.last_img read more

first_imgIllustration of Chikungunya. Prothom AloAt least 1.8 million people are feared to be infected with Chikungunya in the capital this year. One in 10 people in the city are at risk of the mosquito-borne fever, says a study.The study, based on three surveys conducted by the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) in 2011 and 2013, says around 10 per cent of the people in Dhaka city are at risk of being infected by Chikungunya, said professor Mahmudur Rahman, former director of the IEDCR.According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, around 18.24 million people live in Dhaka city.Of them, 10 per cent, around 1.8 million, are at risk of being infected by Chikungunya.IEDCR director professor Meerjady Sabrina told Prothom Alo, “I don’t agree with the statement that one out of 10 people in Dhaka city may be affected by Chikungunya.”She, however, declined to comment further about this. The IEDCR conducted a survey over mobile phone in July this year.Some 4,775 dwellers of the city were contacted with this survey and some 357 people said that they suffered from Chikungunya fever.A Dhaka Medical College Hospital associate professor said, there are Chikungunya patients in almost every family of Dhaka city now. So, it is not inaccurate to say that 10 per cent Dhaka dwellers have been suffering from the disease. *This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossainlast_img read more

So, don’t be offended if he doesn’t know you’re interviewing him. He’s just trying to keep up.Lesson 2: He’s a total pro. And so, he’ll humor your ridiculously long-winded attempt at a question, when a less-thoughtful guest might just blurt out, “Get to the point already, Cohen!”Lesson 3: Ira will deftly deny the premise of your question while also complimenting you for asking it.Lesson 4: The interview will, at some point, take…well, a turn.Lesson 5: Ira will pull the interview back from the brink and justify the turn the conversation has taken.Lesson 6: The interview taking a turn may actually be your fault.Lesson 7: The interview isn’t really over until it’s been edited.
