West Ham manager Slaven Bilic was full of praise for his players following their 2-1 win against Man City.The Hammers took a 2-0 lead at the Etihad through Victor Moses and Diafra Sakho, with Kevin De Bruyne pulling one back for the hosts.With this win on the road, Bilic has now guided the east London club to wins away at Arsenal, Liverpool and league leaders Man City.However, Manuel Pellegrini’s men didn’t give up their 100 per cent Premier League record without a fight.“You look better when you are losing against City, he said.“Then they let you play, or when it’s 0-0, they don’t go wild.“But when you have that amount of quality and when they’re losing at home 2-0 or 2-1 they go at you all guns blazing.“And it’s hard, but we knew that. We deserved [the win]. Yes, of course, we were lucky, but we deserved that luck.“In every position we were fighting as a unit, we kept the ball when it was possible to keep it.”
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s administration has sometimes been called corrupt, as when he was accepting millions in fees from body-building magazines while serving as governor, and even now as his top staffers are paid more from his special-interest-financed political committees than from their state salaries. It has been called a Teflon administration, as when he promised to hire a private detective to investigate his own admitted past sexual misbehavior, but never did – and there were no consequences. But on at least two of the hot issues Schwarzenegger himself has pronounced most urgent for California, it might be better to call his the Ostrich Administration. For he’s clearly got his head deep in sand, or something, when it comes to both greenhouse gases and universal health care. On greenhouse gases, the final budget Schwarzenegger sent legislators this year would have cut out Williamson Act subsidies to farmers, a program that keeps more than 16 million acres of farmland from being developed. That farmland removes at least 1.75 million tons of carbon dioxide from the air each year, far more than any other state program now existing or envisioned. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Legislators eventually put it back in the budget and Schwarzenegger later left it there, lamely claiming that, “I’m glad they put it back in.” Like an ostrich with hidden head, he had not looked at what his proposed cut would mean to his own cherished ideal, one which he has advocated before countless world leaders. Just as egregious is his failure to examine the details of his plan to impose universal health care coverage in California, forcing even those who don’t want insurance to buy it. Problems here include those two key D-words: deductibles and doctors. Schwarzenegger and his aides have virtually ignored the problem of high deductibles, which could make health care premiums a worthless expense for the working poor, if they or their families don’t have major health problems in any one year. That difficulty, however, could likely be dealt with by raising premiums paid by the wealthy to make up for costs of lower deductibles for those buying the most rudimentary catastrophic coverage. But the doctor problem won’t be so easy. Schwarzenegger proposes to add a minimum of 900,000 patients to the state’s Medi-Cal rolls, paying for this in part with additional available federal matching funds and with a tax on hospitals that now treat the uninsured in emergency rooms, often without getting paid for their services. The hospitals are willing to go along with this because they figure a guarantee of payment will more than make up for any tax they’d pay. But who would treat those patients? Currently, only 35,000 of the state’s almost 65,000 practicing physicians accept Medi-Cal patients, and for most of them the indigent on the program make up just a small part of their practices. Add 900,000 patients to Medi-Cal’s enrollment and you’d need a minimum of 650 doctors to treat them, assuming each doctor has a practice of 1,200 patients and all are Medi-Cal recipients. The average California doctor’s practice includes about that many people, but almost none is exclusively Medi-Cal. There is a reason barely half of all the state’s doctors take Medi-Cal and why most of those who do see its members don’t see many of them: Payments from Medi-Cal are so low doctors can’t afford to pay for office rent, insurance, staff and supplies if they see mostly Medi-Cal patients. In a salient commentary published this fall, Fresno County surgeon Linda Halderman noted that breast cancer specialists receive $24 for a patient consultation no matter how long they spend with a patient, while a two-hour breast-preserving cancer operation and the 90 days of after care that goes with it bring the doctor only $253. Any other medical plan would pay almost double those amounts and physicians who refuse to accept any HMO patients charge far more than that. Those payment levels won’t cover much of any doctor’s expenses. Yet, Medi-Cal is slated for a 10 percent cut in payments next year. Halderman said she treated such Medi-Cal breast cancer patients at a loss for four years before she stopped taking them this fall. Many doctors don’t stick it out that long. And unless Medi-Cal payments rise considerably under the new program, it will be impossible to find the equivalent of 650 more doctors willing to accept an entirely Medi-Cal population for their practices. But Schwarzenegger doesn’t discuss these dismal facts as he travels the state plumping for his program. Maybe he just hasn’t bothered to look into the details of what he’s doing, just as he didn’t bother checking on the consequences of his attempt to eliminate the Williamson Act. It’s plain that he’s acting like an ostrich and depending on his old-reliable Teflon to keep from suffering any consequences.

Arsenal have now moved within one point of Liverpool Arsenal turned up the heat on Liverpool in the race for Champions League football, as an Olivier Giroud brace helped them to a 4-1 win at Stoke.At a ground where they had only won once on eight previous Premier League visits, the Gunners grabbed the lead three minutes prior to the break through Giroud’s close-range strike, with Mesut Ozil then extending their advantage in the 55th minute with a neat finish.Stoke hit back with a controversial 67th-minute goal from substitute Peter Crouch, before efforts from Alexis Sanchez in the 76th minute and Giroud 10 minutes from time wrapped up a victory that sees the gap between Arsene Wenger’s fifth-placed men and fourth-placed Liverpool reduced to a point.Both sides have two games left, and Arsenal will be watching with great interest when Liverpool play at West Ham on Sunday, hoping their fellow Londoners can do them a favour. Manchester City, also with two matches to go, are three points clear of Wenger’s team in third.There have been various protests of late from Arsenal fans calling for the manager to leave, and early on in this game a plane flew over the ground with a banner on display that read ‘WENGER – OUT MEANS OUT!!’Wenger’s future remains uncertain, with the Frenchman still yet to announce whether he intends to stay on at the club beyond the current season.But none of that seems to be distracting his team at the moment, with this representing a third win inside a week and fifth in six league games for a side who also have an FA Cup final against Chelsea to look forward to.As they exerted early pressure at the Bet365 Stadium, Jack Butland did well to push Shkodran Mustafi’s header over the bar in the ninth minute, and the visitors went even closer six minutes later when Nacho Monreal nodded against the post.Stoke were struggling to get going but were presented with an opportunity just before the half-hour mark as Mustafi fouled Xherdan Shaqiri just outside the Arsenal box, picking up a booking in the process. The resulting free-kick was curled just over by Marko Arnautovic.The Gunners were soon back on the front foot, with Sanchez firing narrowly wide after Glen Johnson lost the ball in a dangerous position.And a fine Arsenal move then saw them grab the lead as Hector Bellerin ran on to Francis Coquelin’s through-ball and delivered a cross that Giroud met with a tap-in.It was another delightful Gunners move that made it 2-0 after the interval, as Ozil gave the ball to Sanchez and then latched onto the superb pass the Chilean sent to him in return, before beating Butland by lifting a shot over him.That goal seemed to stir Stoke into life. Mame Diouf wasted a good chance by heading wide from Arnautovic’s cross, the Senegalese forward’s last contribution as he was then replaced by Crouch while Joe Allen was taken off for Saido Berahino.Petr Cech then tipped a Bruno Martins Indi header over, before Crouch converted another Arnautovic cross in controversial circumstances, with it appearing the striker had used his arm to divert the ball in.Wenger made his displeasure clear by the dugout, but the effort stood – and his men then responded admirably to the setback.Sanchez put them 3-1 up as he received the ball from Bellerin and saw his strike deflect in off Ryan Shawcross.Aaron Ramsey, booed by some Stoke fans having come on for Sanchez, then made a lively contribution at the ground where he broke his leg in 2010.The Wales midfielder had one shot saved by Butland and subsequently provided the cut-back from which Giroud prodded in his second on the slide. 1

BREAKING NEWS: Two men have been convicted of murdering a 57-year-old Donegal man outside his home in Glasgow.Asif Rehman, 20, and Adel Ishaq, 19, attacked William McKeeney in Melville Street, Pollokshields, on 15 January.Mr McKeeney, who was originally from Malin Head, later died at the city’s Victoria Infirmary. Rehman and Ishaq, who denied the murder charge against them, face mandatory life terms when they are sentenced at a later date.During the trial at the High Court in Kilmarnock, the jury was told that Mr McKeeney was attacked while making his way home from a nearby pub.His partner Annemarie Newlands, 48, said she had been watching out for him from a window of the flat they shared in Melville Street.She told the court that she had seen “two Asian men stamping on something”.After they left the scene, Ms Newlands said she was able to see a dark shape which she thought was a person.When she ran outside she realised the dark object was her partner, Mr McKeeney.She told the court: “He was very battered and the side of his face was all swollen.”The trial also heard from Ishaq’s friend, 19-year-old Imran Khan.He said Rehman had warned him during a phone call that they had just “splattered” someone outside his house.Following Rehman and Ishaq’s convictions, procurator fiscal John Dunn said: “William McKeeney was an innocent man on his way home when he had the misfortune to run into Asif Rehman and Adel Ishaq.“Minutes later and in a totally brutal and unprovoked attack, he was beaten so viciously and severely that he would never recover. His murder has shocked the local community.“I hope that today’s verdict will bring some closure for Mr McKeeney’s family, who have had to deal with the effects of this tragic event. I cannot imagine the mental anguish they have suffered because of these men.”MEN FOUND GUILTY OF MURDER OF DONEGAL MAN IN GLASGOW was last modified: October 16th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdeadGlasgowguiltywilliam mckeeney
