Unseeded Millman sends Federer crashing out of U.S. Open

first_imgRoger Federer made a shock exit from the U.S. Open on Monday after the five-times champion was beaten 3-6 7-5 7-6(7) 7-6(3) by unseeded Australian John Millman in the round of 16.Millman, ranked 55th in the world, was dominated by Federer in the first set but turned the tables on the Swiss to take the second then held his nerve through two tiebreaks to secure the win in three hours and 34 minutes.The Australian said he froze in the first set but was able to take control by relying on his fighting qualities.“Felt like a deer in the headlights to begin with, to be honest,” he said courtside.“I’ve got to control the controllable and the one thing I can control is the fight in me. I’ve always brought the fight up.”Second seed Federer, who had not dropped a set in his first three matches in New York, had 77 unforced errors and 10 double faults and landed just 49 percent of his first serves.Millman said the victory had yet to sink in.“I’m probably in a little bit of disbelief. I have so much respect for Roger and everything he’s done for the game,” he added. “He’s a hero of mine. Today he was not at his best but I’ll take it.”Next up for the Australian is a quarter-final match-up against sixth seed Novak Djokovic. Day 8, Monday, Sept. 3Men’s Singles resultsJohn Millman def.

Euro 2016 will come too soon for new-look England, admits Terry Butcher

first_imgTerry Butcher believes Euro 2016 will come too soon for Roy Hodgson’s new-look England team.The Three Lions will arrive in France next summer on the back of a 100 per cent qualification campaign, but Butcher doesn’t expect that to translate into glory.The former Ipswich Town and Rangers star, who played 77 times for England, told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “We hit a bit of a Spanish roadblock in the first friendly game [last week], but they were a lot better against France, although you don’t know what state France were in to play the game [following the Paris atrocities]. But, having said that, you can only beat what’s in front of you.“And England were very good [against France]. [Eric] Dier was very good in midfield, and I like [Dele] Alli. I liked the combination of the England team. It was a lot better, a lot more effective, and at the back [John] Stones is just excellent, isn’t he? He has to play. I thought he was different class.“England are shaping up alright. I don’t think they will go all the way at the Euros, far from it, but it’s a lot better.”Terry Butcher will be managing a team at the St George’s Park football tournament in aid of the Sir Bobby Foundation.

Housing for homeless is eyed

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! An $80 million plan to deal with homelessness throughout Los Angeles County — not just on Skid Row — has officials in the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys considering how to tap into the funding. Under the massive spending deal approved last week by the county Board of Supervisors, an order of nuns in the Antelope Valley hopes it can get some money to convert a former home into a shelter for homeless women with children. In Santa Clarita, the $80 million spending plan has at least one organization considering developing transitional housing. The plan has not been without controversy. Earlier this year, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich argued that it would not reduce homelessness, but simply spread Skid Row-type problems countywide. But last week, Antonovich joined his four colleagues in unanimously approving the plan, and said strong community outreach must be a key part of the effort. “Supervisor Antonovich wants to make sure that all these different plans are community-coordinated projects,” said Norm Hickling, Antelope Valley deputy for the supervisor. “And (that) they’re truly partnerships between the community, the stakeholders and the government … and they’re not just forced on the community.” A 2005 review found about 88,000 homeless in Los Angeles County, with 11,275 of them in the San Fernando Valley and part of the Santa Clarita Valley. The Antelope Valley and another part of Santa Clarita Valley had 3,544 homeless. During warmer months in the Santa Clarita Valley — before the winter shelter opens — the homeless sleep along the Santa Clara River, under bridges and in cars. Linda Malerba, a board member of the organization that runs the winter shelter, also is director of Lutheran Social Services, which serves 150 homeless people a year. The Santa Clarita-based group provides guidance and life skills to the homeless, and also serves about 150 individuals a year who are at risk for homelessness. “Most Santa Clarita homeless want to stay in Santa Clarita because it’s a safe community,” Malerba said. “Most of them have the ability to become self-sufficient. They’re not necessarily substance abusers or mentally ill.” The area could use transitional housing, said Malerba, who is part of the San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition, which plans to propose at least one project under the $80 million initiative. Meanwhile, an order of nuns called St. Joseph’s Manor hopes to obtain about $500,000 to turn a former house in the Littlerock area into a center for homeless women with children, Hickling said. The nuns envision up to 20 living units where participants could get help finding work and becoming self-sufficient. Another project to expand a shelter in Lancaster run by Catholic Charities has already received $1 million from the county. Last year, the Board of Supervisors approved $20 million to add more year-round shelter beds. And the recent approval of the $80 million one-time expenditure for emergency, transitional and permanent housing comes on top of another $15.5 million in ongoing funding for homeless programs the board approved in April. Homeless advocates have long argued that the homeless should be helped in their own communities instead of being forced to move to Skid Row for services. The county’s regional initiative to fight homelessness would put a 30-bed center in each supervisorial district to deal with the chronically homeless, providing mental health assistance and drug and alcohol counseling. Supervisors are still working out where to put the centers, which would each have a 10-bed facility off-site for homeless individuals needing recuperative care. Supervisors, expecting some community opposition, have included $800,000 in the plan for community outreach. Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar said the county’s $80 million anti-homelessness plan is a strong effort. But even though money could be available, it doesn’t mean Santa Clarita needs a permanent shelter, he said. “(Homelessness) is certainly (an issue) that raises a lot of concern by citizens,” he said. “But I have also found it interesting that people say, we must have a homeless shelter, we must do this, we must do that. “As soon as they’ve found out that it’s going to be started on their street, then the discussion changes dramatically.” — Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Study: Vaccine safe for tots

first_img“This is really reassuring for parents and for doctors who want to protect children from what’s a pretty nasty disease,” Hambidge said. “We know children in this age group get hospitalized for complications of influenza as much as elderly adults do.” Nine of the study’s 19 co-authors reported financial ties to vaccine manufacturers, but the industry had no direct role in the study.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’With the shots now recommended for all children younger than 5, the findings are reassuring, said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at Vanderbilt University who was not involved in the study. “Linus had a security blanket, and this is a huge security blanket,” Schaffner said. “This is a comfort to all providers, parents and policymakers that we can move ahead with great, great confidence.” Researchers found a few more cases of mild nausea and diarrhea than expected within the first two weeks after the shot, but the numbers were extremely low considering the thousands of children studied: 13 cases. After their flu shots, the children were less likely to get treated for upper respiratory tract and ear infections. That could have been because parents felt reassured that the symptoms were not signs of flu, said study co-author Dr. Simon Hambidge, an investigator at Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s clinical research unit. The federally funded study appears in today’s Journal of the American Medical Association. CHICAGO – The biggest study ever to look at the side effects of flu shots in children confirmed that the vaccine is safe for babies and toddlers. Researchers studied 45,000 U.S. children and found almost no side effects requiring medical treatment during the six weeks after the youngsters were vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 90 children under 5 die of the flu each season. Flu vaccine has a good safety record, the researchers wrote, though some formulations have been linked to Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare paralyzing disorder. last_img read more

But ESPN and Der Spiegel journalist Honigstein claimed that the Blues are the only club to have made a firm offer for the attacking midfielder.Speaking on Sky Sports, Honigstein said: “My understanding is that Chelsea are the only team that have made a firm offer at the moment.“Dortmund are looking to see if there are other offers coming in as you would, but it is kind of agreed that the player will move in the summer definitely because he still has a year to run on his contract.
