Many credit unions and community banks point the finger at rates and service, and then tack on a qualifying statement, “but we’re competitive.” There’s not a lot of confidence or conviction there.If you have 15 seconds to communicate a message, keeping in mind that the average person now has an attention span of eight seconds – a second slower than your average goldfish – what do you say? What makes us human is our need to be loved, understood and respected. Therefore, we spill our guts out. Or to put it another way… word vomit.It truly is like going on a nervous date, and the conversation is one-sided. The last thing you want is for the other person to go home feeling you were not at all interested in getting know him or her.What’s the age-old answer to what women (and men) want? They want someone who wants to discover them.
With Jose Mourinho’s history of claiming titles from the front, some are suggesting the Blues’ position is ominous for the rest of the division, but 31 games still remain. “Clearly it (the title race) is not over,” Terry said. “Other teams have been in this position. It’s nice to have the lead but when you’re at the top everyone wants to shoot you down. “That’s the good thing about the Premier League and why everyone loves it. “Teams are out to get us because we are at the top and playing well. “The international break is here and we need to come back and maintain our form after that as well. It’s very important we do that.” Chelsea are chasing a first Premier League title since 2010 – their only championship since two-time winner Mourinho’s first spell ended in September 2007 – and Terry wants the Blues to ruthlessly exploit any slips by their rivals. He added: “You’re just hoping when you’re at the top and have a five-point cushion and more on certain teams, a couple of them slip up again and that increases. The Blues have taken a five-point lead over Manchester City into the international break after Sunday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal, their sixth victory from seven games. Manchester United are eight points behind, with the Gunners and Liverpool nine adrift. “If that happens, it’s a lot of points to give up early on. All we can do is keep winning and wait for those teams to slip up.” Chelsea finished four points behind champions City last term, but in Diego Costa now have the “killer” striker Mourinho has craved. The Spain striker netted his ninth Premier League goal on his seventh appearance, despite Mourinho insisting he is barely training as a result of a hamstring problem. Terry questioned where talk of Costa’s fitness travails arose, insisting the £32million summer signing from Atletico Madrid was causing him no end of problems in training. “I’m not sure where that’s coming from,” Terry said. “He isn’t showing that in training. He looks sharp, he looks angry, he looks aggressive. “He’s fit and that’s the main thing. Diego has been a nightmare for defenders. He popped up with another great finish.” A delightful pass from Cesc Fabregas set up Costa and the former Arsenal captain was praised by Terry. “When it’s quiet and tight like that you need someone to open up the defence,” the Blues skipper added. “He’s not only shown it against Arsenal but from day one.” John Terry is thrilled with Chelsea’s fine start to the Premier League season, but insists it is just that – the beginning.

(REUTERS) – David Warner made 88 not out and featured in two significant partnerships to lead Australia’s robust reply to Bangladesh’s first-innings total of 305 in the second and final Test yesterday.Smarting from their embarrassing defeat inside four days in Dhaka, Australia’s top order fired up to help them reach 225-2 as the tourists, still 80 runs behind, press for a pride-salvaging victory in Chittagong.Known for his explosive batting, Warner hit only four boundaries in his patient knock as he kept Australia on course for a handy first-innings lead which often clinches Test matches in the subcontinent.Peter Handscomb, Warner’s partner in their unbroken 127-run stand, braved Bangladesh’s relentless spin assault and dehydration, to remain not out on 69. His fourth Test fifty included five boundaries.Earlier, Nathan Lyon claimed 7-94, his second-best figures, as Bangladesh added 52 runs to their overnight score of 253-6 before collapsing.The off-spinner, who had claimed five wickets on Monday, struck with his second delivery of the day, dismissing Mushfiqur Rahim for 68.Ashton Agar dismissed the other overnight batsman Nasir Hossain for 45 with Matthew Wade, whose place in the playing XI was in doubt going into the Test, taking a fine catch.Warner then ran-out Mehidy Hasan before Lyon dismissed Taijul Islam to claim his seventh wicket.When Australia returned to bat, Mushfiqur took a spectacular diving catch to dismiss Matt Renshaw for four but Warner and Steve Smith raised 93 runs for the second wicket to overcome the loss.Warner defended resolutely, letting Smith dominate their partnership, before the Australia skipper was bowled through the gate for 58 by spinner Taijul Islam. Smith hit eight boundaries in his fluent knock.New man in Handscomb proved an able ally as Warner frustrated Bangladesh with his compact defence, scoring largely through singles and twos.The heat and humidity took a toll on Handscomb who looked dehydrated and needed medical attention towards the end before resuming to bat.Rahim wasted a stumping opportunity when Warner, then on 73, charged out to Mehidy Hasan and missed the ball which kept low and hit the stumper’s pad.Security was tightened around the match after the Australian team bus was hit by a rock on Monday.BANGLADESH 1st innings (o/n 253-6)Tamim Iqbal lbw b Lyon 9Soumya Sarkar lbw b Lyon 33Imrul Kayes lbw b Lyon 4Mominul Haque lbw b Lyon 31Shakib Al Hasan c Wade b Agar 24Mushfiqur Rahim b Lyon 68Sabbir Rahman stp.

Facebook Twitter Google+ At this point, Tyler Ennis’ actions can’t surprise anybody. None of his teammates look at him as a freshman — they really haven’t all year. Trevor Cooney expects Syracuse to go to his backcourt mate for big plays. Jim Boeheim said the guard is as good at getting to the rim as anyone he’s seen.There was never a doubt that Syracuse’s head coach could look to his freshman point guard for a critical play during a close game. Pittsburgh stops players from getting to the rim as well as anyone, but it couldn’t stop Ennis.“He made some of the best plays I’ve seen in a long time,” Boeheim said.Ennis darted through an off-balanced defense for a go-ahead scoop shot with less than two minutes remaining. Just over a minute later, he went with his left hand to end the No. 22 Panthers’ (16-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast) upset bid and seal a 59-54 win for No. 2 Syracuse (18-0, 5-0) on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.“They don’t let you get all the way to the rim,” Ennis said. “I got there once. I wasn’t really expecting to get it a second time.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe guard, who led the Orange with 16 points, scored six of the SU’s final eight and kept Syracuse atop the ACC in front of a raucous 30,046 — the second largest crowd this year.It was just the second time this season that Ennis led the Orange in scoring, but he’s been one of SU’s most reliable offensive weapons. Syracuse has other options but the freshman is the catalyst.“From the moment I started to work with him,” assistant coach Gerry McNamara said, “I kind of got the feeling that he was a little bit different.”McNamara is surprised at how often Ennis gets overlooked.C.J. Fair, not Ennis, was the Orange’s unquestioned star in the preseason. When Ennis played with Andrew Wiggins with CIA Bounce in the Amateur Athletic Union, it was Wiggins, not Ennis, who typically stole the show.“I’ve watched him for three years now and every time I’ve watched him,” McNamara said, “he’s made every player on the court a better basketball player.”In the final moments on Saturday, it played to his benefit. Ennis is no longer a relative unknown — he’s a legitimate ACC Player of the Year and National Freshman of the Year candidate — but he also has a plethora of options to distribute to.Cooney went just 2-for-8 but he’s too dangerous when open to be left alone. Fair scored fewer points than Ennis, but is SU’s leading scorer for the season. Ennis doesn’t have the offensive reputation of the two, so the Panthers often left him one-on-one.He just had to get his man off balance and the help from the wings wouldn’t be quick enough to close in on him at the rim.“You kind of just spread it out and let him go to work,” Cooney said. “If they’re going to try and take him away, he’ll make the right play and find the open guy, but you’ve got to cover everyone else and he made spectacular plays.”For the opening 20 minutes on Saturday, though, Ennis was a non-factor offensively. He had just one assist and his two points came from a pair of free throws.But he’s started slow before — particularly of late — and still managed to put together standout performances. He followed up a two-point first half against Boston College with a 10-point second and recovered from a handful of early turnovers to score 10 against North Carolina.“You’ve never seen any intimidation when you look at him,” Fair said. “He always plays the same game no matter what the score is.”Less than three minutes into the second half, Ennis was able to get himself going. He found his way to the heart of the defense, but got stuck in no-man’s land and twirled around. Somehow, the defense sagged off him and he pulled up for a mid-range jump shot.Moments later, the talented two-way freshman grabbed a steal and found Cooney in transition for one of his two 3-pointers. Syracuse’s lead swelled to seven. The Orange led by as many as 10, but a barrage of 3s from Pittsburgh wing Lamar Patterson made it a struggle until the end.There aren’t many freshmen that Boeheim could turn to at the end of the game when in need of a steadying presence and critical bucket. He said Carmelo Anthony and McNamara were two. Ennis is another.Said Boeheim: “He won the game down the stretch for us.” Comments Published on January 18, 2014 at 6:25 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2
“We’re a team that each and every day someone else can hurt you,” first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. “That’s the way we’ve been winning. That’s what we’re about.”This postseason has been wound absurdly tight for the Dodgers, who’ve had barely enough room to exhale, let alone squirm.This time, however, they gave themselves the opportunity to watch the late innings with a collective heart rate that wasn’t alarming.In taking a 2-1 edge in the series, the Dodgers also solved Jake Arrieta, who was so good at Dodger Stadium in August of 2015 that his manager likened his performance that day to child’s play.Arrieta threw a no-hitter here on a Sunday night, with ESPN televising the brilliance to anyone with a cable box or satellite dish or iPhone or tablet or any other of a thousand connected devices. LOS ANGELES >> He actually was talking about his starting pitchers, but Dave Roberts’ words — much like his shuffling roster of players this season — worked well in multiple situations.“There’s not been really one formula,” the Dodgers’ manager said before Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, “for us to win the baseball games that we’ve won.”So Tuesday, Roberts’ team used the offense of two guys who had been slumping worse than the relevance of the pay phone to beat a pitcher the Dodgers once found impossible to hit at all.Corey Seager’s RBI single and Yasmani Grandal’s two-run homer gave the Dodgers an enormous early lead, allowing Rich Hill to pitch six relatively stress-free innings and the bullpen to finish up for a 6-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Afterward, Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon described the obscene movement on Arrieta’s pitches as looking “like a Wiffle ball from the side.” Then he added, “Right now, he’s pitching on another level.”The level Arrieta eventually reached in 2015 was worthy of the NL Cy Young Award, the right-hander ending Clayton Kershaw’s two-year hold on the honor.Arrieta wasn’t quite as good this season, but he still won 18 games, was an All-Star and, on the final day of May, shut out the Dodgers on two hits over seven innings at Wrigley Field.If you’re starting to get the idea that the Dodgers haven’t managed much against Arrieta of late, well, you’re as on the track as they’d been off the track when facing him.“We weren’t going to get caught up in seeing a guy we haven’t scored a run against in awhile,” Gonzalez said. “We knew if we executed our game plan, the swings were going to be there.”On Tuesday, Seager got to Arrieta first, with an opening-inning single, and then next, with a third-inning single to score Andrew Toles for the Dodgers’ initial run.Entering the game, Seager was in a 1-for-20 free fall, the guy who opened the playoffs with a first-at-bat, first-pitch homer seeing this postseason average overall drop to .133.“It was kind of contagious,” Seager said of the Dodgers’ emerging offense. “We grinded through a lot of ABs. We took some good pitches. We kinda got his pitch count up.”In the fourth inning, it was Grandal’s turn to prove there was still a pulse in his bat and a point to his at-bats.The Dodgers catcher struck out against Arrieta in the second to stretch his personal hitless string in these playoffs to 16 at-bats. At that point, Grandal’s only two hits had come way back in Game 1 of the NL Division Series.But, in the instant it took him to wheel on an 3-2 pitch from Arrieta, Grandal drove his home run over the wall in center, scoring Josh Reddick and putting the Dodgers up, 3-0.The shot came on the eighth pitch of Grandal’s plate appearance, the sort of stingy at-bat that Seager said “can change the momentum of the whole game.”The ball traveled a distance of 398 feet at a velocity of 108 mph, and don’t you love how home runs these days can be described in the manner of commercial air travel?By the time Flight 398 touched down, Grandal himself was flying near first base, the Dodgers soaring along with him.So, how long ago did Arrieta’s no-hitter seem by this point? One of the two Dodgers who reached base against him in that game came on a sixth-inning walk…to Jimmy Rollins.Yeah, that long ago.And the Dodgers weren’t done damaging Arrieta’s Dodger Stadium no-hitter encore.Leading off the sixth, Justin Turner homered to make it 4-0 and end the night for Arrieta, who returned to Chavez Ravine to find himself being out-pitched by Rich Hill.“Jake, he doesn’t make a lot of mistakes,” Turner said. “So, when he does, you don’t want to miss it. Luckily enough, I didn’t miss it.”No, he didn’t. Neither did Seager. Neither did Grandal.From no-hit to no-quit, the Dodgers’ magic continued. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error

They are now joined by Tim Whittaker (Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire) as they attempt to win the annual quadrangular round robin tournament against the other three home nations.England claimed the title at both Machynys Peninsula in Wales in 2016 and Rosslare in Ireland in 2018 but last year they had to play second fiddle to Scotland in extreme weather conditions at Southerness. England, Ireland and Scotland all won two of their matches so the title was decided on points accumulated across all three matches. Attoe, Kellock, Jones and Norton were all part of that English team.The Senior Men’s Home Internationals is an annual competition held in turn in each of the four home nations.

ARCADIA, Calif. (April 1, 2015) – A competitive field of nine 3-year-old colts and geldings are set to go in Saturday’s $200,000 Echo Eddie Stakes at 6 ½ furlongs as part of the Golden State Series for California bred or sired horses.One of two Triple Crown nominated horses in Saturday’s Echo Eddie, Gimme Da Lute could make it an even bigger day for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert should he win. Second by a nose in his first outing on Jan. 31 at Santa Anita in a maiden special weight, he broke his maiden in his second attempt on Feb. 21 in a state-bred maiden special weight going 6 ½ furlongs.The bay colt by Midnight Lute is out of the Proud Citizen mare, Casino Gold and is owned by Karl Watson, Mike Pegram and Paul Weitman. He is 2-1-1-0 overall with earnings of $48,160.Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer sends out Chief of Staff Saturday and reunites him with Mike Smith. A first time starter at Emerald Downs in September for then trainer Michael Puhich, the Triple Crown nominated Chief of Staff first raced and won for Hollendorfer in a Jan. 24 maiden special weight that he won by 5 ¼ lengths.The colt by Majestic Warrior out of the Awesome Again mare Morning Jewel is 3-1-1-1 overall with earnings of $46,218.Trainer Peter Miller will send out Richard’s Boy for the first time Saturday, an Idiot Proof gelding out of a Cee’s Tizzy mare, Marissa’s Joy who is undefeated in three lifetime starts. In his only turf try, Richard’s Boy won a down the hill allowance turf race March 13 for then trainer Herb Bacorn and won it gamely, fighting back at the rail. He will return to dirt on Saturday and will retain the services of jockey Fernando Perez.Richard’s Boy is owned by Rockingham Ranch and is 3-3-0-0 overall with earnings of $105,240.Grazen Sky comes into Saturday off of two wins and has never been worse than second in four lifetime starts. Second in his first two races, maiden special weights, going 5 ½ furlongs, he has won his last two in-a-row. He will again be ridden by leading-rider Rafael Bejarano who was up in his most recent score, a 6 furlong allowance March 5, in which he was favored at odds of 4-5.He is trained by Steven Miyadi and owned by Nicholas Alexander and is 4-2-2-0 overall with earnings of $91,800.The complete field for the Echo Eddie Stakes, to be run as the third race on an 11-race card Saturday, in post position order with jockeys and weights: Rocko’s Wheel, Joe Talamo, 118; Pay the Fine, Mario Gutierrez, 116; McHeat, Flavien Prat, 118; Richard’s Boy, Fernando Perez, 120; Run Like a Million, Kent Desormeaux, 118; Chief of Staff, Mike Smith, 118; Grazen Sky, Rafael Bejarano, 120; Over Par, Elvis Trujillo, 116; Gimme Da Lute, Martin Garcia, 118.–30– COMPETITIVE FIELD OF NINE SOPHOMORE COLTS AND GELDINGS SET TO COMPETE IN GOLDEN STATE SERIES EVENT
