Zlatan Ibrahimović ‘God’ Zlatan produces debut miracle after prophetic LA Galaxy team-talk Ives Galarcep @soccerbyives Last updated 1 year ago 10:04 4/1/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(8) Zlatan Ibrahimović MLS LA Galaxy v Los Angeles Los Angeles LA Galaxy Videos The Swede asked a question of his new teammates on Friday that may have them believing in a higher power after Saturday’s stunning debut CARSON, Calif. — When Zlatan Ibrahimovic began his first training session with the LA Galaxy on Friday, he took a moment to ask his new teammates a surprising question. “Do you believe in God?” Ibrahimovic asked his rather perplexed new squad. After they all answered in the affirmative, Ibrahimovic delivered the punchline.”I’m glad you all believe in me,” the 36-year-old deadpanned, delivering a joke to break the ice with his new team.After Saturday, Ibrahimovic’s teammates were probably left wondering if he was joking. His jaw-dropping 40-yard blast of a finish, followed by a 90th-minute header, helped the Galaxy complete an improbable rally from 3-0 down to 4-3 winners in the first installment of their newly-born rivalry with expansion side Los Angeles FC.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player It was a script fitting of Ibrahimovic’s new Hollywood home, helping transform what seemed like a one-sided route into a rally for the ages, a match that immediately holds up as one of the most entertaining in MLS history, and easily one of the best individual debuts in league history.”If you look back, every team I came to, the first official game I scored. I said I would not let it down today, I will score also today,” Ibrahimovic said. “I was just waiting to come in because when you’re losing 3-0 the adrenaline is pumping even more because you want to be able to do something, help the team, especially when they’re in a difficult situation. I just wanted to come in.”The fans were demanding Zlatan, and I gave them Zlatan.”Zlatan gave everyone in the stadium a moment of brilliance, similar to many others he has produced in his storied career, when he side-volleyed a 40-yard blast just six minutes after coming on. The finish drew an eruption of cheers and tied the match at 3-3.”My original thought was: ‘He’s not shooting this. Is he really going to shoot this?’” Galaxy midfielder Perry Kitchen told Goal . “Two seconds later it’s in the back of the net and we’re celebrating in the corner.”“I had a coach I used to coach with and he used to have a saying. ‘You’ve got to dare to be brilliant’,” Galaxy coach Sigi Schmid said. “You can’t do something brilliant unless you dare to be brilliant. Ibrahimovic is the perfect definition of a guy who always dares to be brilliant, and if you do that you can pull off some things. That’s got to be a goal that’s going to go around the world. I’m sure it’ll be a YouTube sensation. It was fantastic.”THIS IS LA! @Ibra_official Welcome GOD! 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 pic.twitter.com/We7cyyFyDk — Jonathan Dos Santos (@jona2santos) March 31, 2018 As easy as Ibrahimovic made things look during his 19 minutes, he admitted afterwards that it was anything but.”I felt like I played 40 games for my 20 minutes,” Ibrahimovic said. “I was feeling everything, jet leg, I didn’t play for a long time. I did the first sprint and I started to breath immediately, so when the second came I said ‘this time I shoot, I don’t run with the ball.’ That’s the ball that went in.”Ibrahimovic’s wonder strike helped complete the comeback from 3-0 down, and that would have been enough to make the game an unforgettable one. Zlatan wasn’t done though. He scored again in the 90th minute, heading home his second of the match to spark a celebration among Galaxy fans who were spared the embarrassment of dropping a result to their new LA rival.Zlatan. On. Repeat. 🦁 #LAvLAFC pic.twitter.com/vY5KzyYnaW — Major League Soccer (@MLS) March 31, 2018 Ibrahimovic’s double gave Galaxy fans a memory they won’t soon forget on a day that started out looking like a nightmare. LAFC dominated the opening half, taking a 2-0 lead into the locker room that could have easily been bigger . A Galaxy own goal early in the second half made it 3-0, and at that point Saturday looked destined to be a blowout, with Ibrahimovic’s debut starting to seem like an afterthought.The Galaxy appeared to hit rock bottom around the 60th minute, when LAFC — leading 3-0 — was knocking the ball around to a chorus of Ole chants, as the sizable LAFC fan contingent made it feel like the Galaxy were the visitors at StubHub Center. In an instant, Servando Carrasco forced a turnover and fed Sebastian Lletget for a 61st-minute finish that gave the Galaxy some much-needed energy, and put LAFC on its heels.”We came in (to halftime) down 2-0, obviously we were devastated, but we know we just had to get the first one and as soon as we get the first one everything changes,” Lletget told Goal . “You could feel it.”Ibrahimovic was already warming up when Lletget scored, but Schmid could sense a shift in momentum and brought on his newest player just 10 minutes later, shortly after Galaxy fans began filling the stadium with chants of “We want Zlatan.”Ibrahimovic made his presence felt almost immediately, drawing attention from LAFC defenders and freeing up space for a Chris Pontius header that made the score 3-2 two minutes after Ibrahimovic came on.LAFC had its chances to find a fourth goal, but hit the post on one play and sent a shot inches wide on another. That kept the Galaxy close enough for Ibrahimovic to do the rest, first with a wonder goal from 40 yards, and then with a last-minute winner he headed home to seal the victory in his debut.You couldn’t write a better script.ZLATAN. STOPPAGE TIME. 4-3. #LAvLAFC https://t.co/9ya60MdXk6 — Major League Soccer (@MLS) March 31, 2018 It was the perfect ending to a crazy first installment of Major League Soccer’s new LA rivalry, a derby in which the Galaxy now hold bragging rights following a match that won’t soon be forgotten.”The derbys I’ve played have had historical moments. This will be one of them. This is the start,” Ibrahimovic said. “I just want to be part of the history that the Galaxy’s doing in MLS. A new team like LAFC is doing new things and Galaxy has been there for many years.”This is the first of many that will come, and hopefully we set the bar for this kind of game,” Ibrahimovic said. “But let’s hope it’s more under control the next game, and not crazy like this.”It only took Ibrahimovic one game to win over his new fans, as well as his new teammates, who welcomed him on Friday and celebrated with him one day later.”We could tell from the first day he’s a good dude, and wants to be part of the group,” Lletget told Goal . “I think that played a part today. He felt like we were all behind him, and he showed his leadership.”Ibrahimovic showed the Galaxy that, while he may not be God, he’s definitely someone special, and there’s no denying that after Saturday’s performance his new teammates fully believe in Zlatan.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR The city of Concord for the second time in two weeks has postponed a meeting of the city council to discuss the selection of a master developer for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station in northern California, after the apparent suicide of the city attorney who had been investigating allegations that one of the two competing firms improperly lobbied the city.The city first postponed the council’s discussion late last month after Catellus Development Corp. requested the city investigate its accusations that Lennar Urban had violated the negotiating agreement both finalists had signed. Catellus also asked why city staff failed to recommend a preferred master developer as expected.At the time of his death last week, city attorney Mark Coon was preparing a report on his investigation. It is not clear if Coon finished the report or when the city plans to release his findings, reported the Contra Costa Times.While the city council’s five council members have said Lennar did not lobby them, Concord Mayor Tim Grayson last month returned $12,600 in donations to his state Assembly campaign from companies or individuals linked to Lennar. Kofi Bonner, president of Lennar Urban, vigorously defended his firm’s conduct after Catellus’ accusations came out.The city council had been scheduled to meet Oct. 15 to discuss the selection of a master developer; the city has not yet rescheduled that meeting.The reuse plan for the 5,046-acre weapons station site calls for residential, commercial and office use clustered around the North Concord BART station with greenways and parks separating neighborhood villages. Almost 70 percent of the property would be open space and recreational facilities.————Image Source

Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $520 at HP Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) See at Turo Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Comments $155 at Google Express Getty Images Google on Tuesday said it’s established an external advisory council to guide its development of artificial intelligence. The Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC) will advise the company on topics like facial recognition and fairness in machine learning. Last year in a blog post, Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared Google’s AI Principles, a series of ethical guidelines on the development and use of AI. The ATEAC is designed to “complement the internal governance structure and processes that help us implement the principles,” Kent Walker, Google’s senior vice president of global affairs, said in a post. He also discussed the council’s establishment at MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital conference in San Francisco.Members of the inaugural council include Alessandro Acquisti, a behavioral economist and privacy researcher; De Kai, a natural language processing researcher; and Dyan Gibbens, CEO of Trumbull, a startup that works in automation.Those members will serve on the council through 2019, and will hold four meetings beginning next month. Google plans to publish a report summarizing those conversations. “We hope this effort will inform both our own work and the broader technology sector,” Walker wrote. “In addition to consulting with the experts on ATEAC, we’ll continue to exchange ideas and gather feedback from partners and organizations around the world.” Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast.

Tags I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $999 Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. See It
