Atletico take sweet revenge on Real to lift Super Cup [V]

first_imgAtletico Madrid finally got their own back on Real Madrid in European competition by lifting the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday, snatching a 4-2 win over their city rivals thanks to goals from midfielders Saul Niguez and Koke in extra time.Diego Costa gave Europa League holders Atletico a dream start against Champions League winners Real by firing them ahead after 49 seconds, knocking down a long pass and smashing the ball into the net from a tight angle.Real, playing their first competitive game since all-time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo left and Julen Lopetegui succeeded Zinedine Zidane as coach, pulled level when Karim Benzema nodded in a cross from Gareth Bale in the 27th minute.Real, who beat Atletico in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals and dumped them out of the competition in 2015 and 2017, looked set to pour more pain on their neighbours when Juanfran handled and Sergio Ramos tucked the penalty away.Diego Simeone’s side, however, are renowned for their fighting spirit and despite being outplayed for sections of the second half they got back into the game with 12 minutes left through a thumping close-range finish from Costa.Brazilian left back Marcelo had the chance to grab Real victory in stoppage-time but he slipped as he tried to meet a Bale cross and extra-time was needed to settle an enthralling contest between the fierce rivals.Atletico were on the back foot for the start of the extra period but they were still able to press their opponents high up the pitch.That led to Raphael Varane giving the ball away outside his area and Saul thumped home a stunning volley from Thomas Partey’s cross in the 98th minute to restore their lead.https://streamable.com/9k66hFellow academy graduate Koke struck six minutes later, finishing off a smooth team move to secure Atletico’s third Super Cup title.“We always want to win whoever we are playing against but of course we really wanted to finally win a European final against Real Madrid,” Atletico’s Koke told reporters.“It was a spectacular game and in the end when you play like a group it always pays off. This is a great start to a season which we hope will be very successful and very enjoyable.”Lopetegui said his side had played well although he congratulated Atletico for their ruthlessness.“A final is typically won by the team who capitalises on circumstances and Atletico are experts in doing that and they deserved to win the game,” Lopetegui said.“The game didn’t start well for us as we were caught out unexpectedly, then we turned it around and were well on top and we had chances to kill the game off but we couldn’t do it.”last_img read more

Burglars target Jamba stores

first_img“These guys are very brazen,” said Sloan, adding that the burglary in Lakewood occurred just blocks away from the sheriff’s Lakewood Station. The thieves typically pry through the front door using a tile scraper as a crowbar, he said, and then make their way to the safe. The usually pop the safe off a wall and wheel it out on a dolly. The entire burglary typically takes about two minutes, Sloan said. “They’ve obviously rehearsed this,” he said. “They’re in, and they’re out.” Officials believe the suspects targeted Jamba Juice partly because the stores anchor their safes to wood panels on the wall, as opposed to bolting them to the ground. Sheriff’s officials Tuesday announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to two men responsible for a dozen recent burglaries at Jamba Juice stores in Pasadena and four other cities. The two men have stolen store safes containing about $20,000 in pre-dawn burglaries that occurred between May 13 and June 25 in Pasadena, Tarzana, Carson, Long Beach and Lakewood, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Detective Gary Sloan. The crimes generally occurred between 3:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., he said. The first burglary occurred on May 13 in Long Beach at 2603 Bellflower Blvd., authorities said, and the last occurred in Brentwood on June 25. “Hopefully, after this incident, more businesses will realize they should bolt their safes to the floor,” Sloan said. Jamba Juice stores have since bolted their safes to the ground, he added. Officials also haven’t ruled out the possibility that at least one of the burglars could be an employee of Jamba Juice or work at a company that installs the safes. “It’s definitely in the scope of our investigation,” Sloan said. Detectives used security videos from stores in Lakewood and Los Angeles to get a description of the suspects. Using security footage, they have also linked a robbery that occurred over the weekend at a business in Bellflower with the string of Jamba Juice robberies, Sloan said. One of the burglars is described as a heavy-set adult Latino, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a thick mustache and wavy hair. The second man is described at a heavy-set African-American man with a shaved head, about 5 feet 10 inches tall. Anyone with information about the burglaries was asked to call Sloan at (562) 623-3566. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Adium to Integrate Twitter by IM

first_imgPopular Mac multi-service IM software Adium will include sophisticated support for Twitter in its next version, Adium has announced on its blog. Instant messaging access has been shut off for months and isn’t coming back any time soon, the company confirmed in October, but Adium has built its own system.Adium’s Zac West posted screenshots to the official blog and the implementation looks great. The plan was announced this weekend but just now noticed by The Unofficial Apple Weblog. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The gist of the plan is that all your Twitter friends will be added as Adium contacts, messaging them individually will send a “direct message” via Twitter and the bulk of people you are following will have their messages delivered in a group chat. Each individual Tweet will be followed by a link to reply and the frequency of updates will be customizable. Many people will want to track certain search terms of tags on Twitter in Adium and West says he’s hoping that will be possible soon. He has also said that drag and drop upload of images to Twitpic is another goal. We hope that the controls on new message receipts will be granular enough that Twitter by Adium won’t be annoying for heavy Twitter users. We presume that having all your Twitter friends as contacts will make it easy to create groups in Adium as well. Groups in Twitter is one of the keys to effective use of the service.We hate to keep writing about Twitter here, but we do use the service all day long and there’s a reason that so many developers are focused on it. You can follow me on Twitter at Marshallk and the whole ReadWriteWeb crew at ReadWriteWeb. Thanks to Chris Messina for catching this news and bringing it to our attention on Twitter. marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#Messaging Services#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Live Coverage: House Climate Hearing

first_imgScienceInsider is blogging live from the House of Representatives Science and Technology Committee’s hearing on climate science going on right now, along with NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt (who usually blogs at RealClimate).It’s a weird panel, set up by Representative Brian Baird (D-WA), who heads the panel’s Energy and Environment Subcommittee. Usually the minority gets witnesses on one or two panels, but Democrats have allowed minority witnesses on all three panels. Perhaps they are trying to win some goodwill from Republicans who will soon run this panel and others likely to launch investigations on climate.Our coverage will run live, updated continuously—no need to hit F5.
