0Shares0000Second season slump: Mohamed Salah is struggling to match his fantastic form for Liverpool last season © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 17 – Mohamed Salah outshone Neymar and Kylian Mbappe on the Champions League stage last season, but as Paris Saint-Germain’s star duo head to Anfield on Tuesday seeking to make amends, the Egyptian is struggling to match the heights of his debut campaign at Liverpool.Salah’s failure to hit top form dates back to his last Champions League appearance four months ago. Back in May, Salah was on the crest of a wave as his 44-goal campaign had carried Liverpool to the Champions League final and ensured qualification for this season’s competition.However, he lasted just 30 minutes in Kiev after injuring his shoulder when wrestled to the ground by Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and the Spanish giants went on to lift the trophy in a 3-1 win.Floored: Mohamed Salah has struggled to recover from a shoulder injury suffered in last season’s Champions League final © AFP / Sergei SUPINSKYThat started a difficult few months for Salah as he was also robbed of being 100-percent fit for Egypt’s first World Cup in 28 years.Without their talisman, the Pharaohs were beaten by Uruguay in their opening game and his goals against Russia and Saudi Arabia couldn’t prevent Egypt returning home without a single point.Salah has also gone to war with the Egyptian federation over the use of his image and the decision to host their base camp in Chechnya.Egypt’s star player was put in the awkward position of having to pose for photos with Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov, who has been accused of human rights abuses.That hangover has been felt on the field with Salah scoring just twice in Liverpool’s opening five games of the campaign and missing chances he ruthlessly put away last season.– No one-man team –So far Salah’s slackness hasn’t cost Jurgen Klopp’s men. A summer of shrewd investment to build on the already substantial progress made under the German is already bearing fruit with five straight wins.“Of course, it’s important that we don’t have only one goalscorer,” Klopp said after an impressive 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday, that should have been a far more comprehensive victory if the visitors had taken their chances.“It’s still early. Five games, fantastic we’ve won all of them, we have improved.”Neymar and Kylian Mbappe cost Paris Saint Germain more than a combined 400 million euros in the quest for Champions League glory © AFP / FRANCK FIFEThe 39 million euros ($45 million) Liverpool paid for Salah from Roma was brilliant business not just based on Salah’s production, but the hyper inflation that took place in the market just weeks later when PSG smashed the world transfer record by splurging 222 million euros on Neymar.A further 180 million was then splashed on beating Europe’s big guns to the signature of Mbappe, who confirmed his status as the rising star of world football in winning the World Cup for France.Both Neymar and Mbappe will see themselves as heirs to the throne of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world’s best player.But it is Salah who is on the shortlist for FIFA’s Best Player award alongside Ronaldo and Croatian midfielder Luka Modric of Real Madrid, after PSG failed to get beyond the last 16 of the Champions League last season.The limited spotlight offered by Ligue 1 means Europe’s premier club competition is where Neymar and Mbappe need to shine to be in the running for individual awards.However, a blockbuster clash on a Champions League night at fortress Anfield is also the perfect stage for Salah to demonstrate to the world he is no one-season wonder.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

Also recognized at the Celebration of Life awards, an event in its fifth year to honor individuals who have impacted the AIDS community, were Michael Weinstein of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the nation’s largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care, and the Rev. Gina Chapman of the Good Samaritan Metropolitan Community Church in Whittier. Weinstein received the Christopher Wahl Award, named for Wahl’s son, for his support of WRHAP over the years and his extraordinary effort in the fight against AIDS. Chapman was the recipient of the Community Partnership Award for her many years of ministering to individuals with the disease. “I’m very honored not just to be given it but because of who is giving it,” she said, of the award. “When I first came here there was nothing for people with AIDS, but thanks to Doris there is. WHITTIER – In 1993, a grief-stricken mother who lost her son to complications from AIDS formed a nonprofit organization for others living with the disease in the Whittier area. On Thursday evening, that woman, Doris Wahl, was recognized for everything she has done for the Whittier Rio Hondo AIDS Project at an awards event held by the organization. “She is an unflappable, unstoppable person, who has overcome all barriers to help people living with HIV/AIDS, and for that we are celebrating her,” said Elizabeth Mendia, the new executive director of the organization. Wahl, who was at the helm of WRHAP before retiring in January, said being the first recipient of the Founders Award at the event at the Radisson Hotel Whittier, felt strange but also rewarding. “She turned a personal tragedy into a community triumph.” All proceeds raised from the evening, where Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Lakewood, the Rev. Bruce Bergthold of Hillcrest Congregational Church and John Brown of Family Services of the Desert served as presenters, will go toward supporting WRHAP’s services for men, women and children living with the disease. Youth programs at the Christopher Wahl Youth Center, also founded by Wahl to serve Whittier-area youth, will also benefit from the event. Sanchez, who presented the award to Wahl, said it was an honor to be part of such an important event. “This is a woman who had a vision for something she wanted to do and worked her little heart out to make the vision a reality,” she said. “Something very positive has come out of her heartbreak of losing somebody to AIDS.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spent his Saturday shopping for votes and sunglasses. He went home with a pair of sleek Donna Karan shades that cost $189, but he’ll have to wait until Election Day to see how he did with voters. On a campaign swing through Los Angeles, Schwarzenegger was swarmed by shoppers at a mall in the Koreatown section, where he spent about a half-hour shaking hands and distributing fliers outlining his slate of proposals on the Nov. 8 ballot. Polls show the Republican governor is struggling to win support among Democrats and independents, and at an earlier appearance in the Wilshire district he was pointedly critical of members of his own party. Speaking to an Iranian community group, Schwarzenegger said “Democrats and Republicans alike” are responsible for soaring debt in Sacramento “but they won’t do anything about it.” The remark appeared aimed at convincing skeptical voters that his interests are broader than those of his own party or the corporate supporters that have contributed millions of dollars to his campaign. Asked later about his Republican roots, Schwarzenegger said, “What is more important, rather than party, is to be a servant of the people. “I don’t think when I make decisions, ‘What is best for my party?’ But I make decisions about what is best for the state of California,” he added. While Schwarzenegger pumped hands and signed autographs in Los Angeles, about 1,000 teachers, nurses and firefighters knocked on doors around the state asking voters to turn out next month to oppose his proposals. Schwarzenegger is pushing for passage of four ballot measures: Proposition 74, which would extend the probationary period for teachers to earn tenure; Proposition 75, which would require public employee unions to secure written permission from members before using their dues for political purposes; Proposition 76, which would give the governor more power to curb state spending; and Proposition 77, which would strip lawmakers of the power to draw their district boundaries.

With polls showing several of his initiatives lagging, the Republican governor implored voters to support him at the polls. He said many voters are still confused about his “year of reform” initiatives, which seek to undercut union political strength in Sacramento and slow state spending. “Let’s fix the broken system,” the governor told reporters after addressing the Iranian community leaders. “Do we want to have progress, reform, rebuild, or do we want to go and move backward and fail?” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Robin van Persie scored twice as Fulham’s youngsters were beaten 4-1 by Manchester United at Craven Cottage in their final match of the Under-21 Premier League season. Van Persie, who also hit the woodwork twice, opened the scoring for United early on and they were three up by half-time courtesy of Joe Rothwell’s brace.Noe Baba almost pulled a goal back for Fulham in the second half but his shot was superbly saved by keeper Anders Lindegaard.Van Persie netted again nine minutes from the end of a resounding win for the visitors, whose line-up also included Adnan Januzaj.Fulham got a late consolation when Stevie Humphrys headed in Luca de la Torre’s injury-time cross.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
12 December 2011 South Africa had on several occasions appealed to China to halt the execution of Janice Linden, a South African woman convicted of smuggling drugs. On Monday morning, South Africans woke up to the news that Janice Bronwyn Linden was being executed in China. The 37-year-old woman from KwaZulu-Natal was arrested in November 2008 after being found in possession of 3kg of methamphetamines when she arrived in Guangzhou. International Relations and Cooperation spokesperson Clayson Monyela said the South African authorities had been in constant contact with the Chinese on Linden’s sentence, appealing for her execution to be halted. “We have tried at the level of the ambassador in Beijing, up to the level of government, to try to appeal to the authorities in China to commute or convert the sentence from a death penalty to a jail term, especially given what our Constitution says about the death penalty,” Monyela said on Monday. “Unfortunately, all our terms were unsuccessful.” Monyela told E-News channel in an interview that they had even pleaded with the Chinese delegation on the sidelines of the UN climate summit (COP 17) held in Durban over the last two weeks, but this had not yielded any positive results. “We are disappointed in this morning’s execution,” said Monyela. According to Chinese practice, Linden would not have been told of her execution until this morning (Chinese time). Media reports suggested that two of her sisters were in China and had been allowed an hour with her before she was put to death by lethal injection. Monyela said the department would continue providing consular services to her family. Although it is not known how many people are executed in China annually, because the information is classified as a “national secret”, Linden is the first South African to be executed in China, and human rights groups say thousands still face capital punishment in that country.

Haridwar, Apr 19 (PTI) Shankaracharya of Dwarka Peeth Swaroopanand Saraswati today waded into yet another controversy with comments that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swarajs choice of clothes during her Iran visit delivered a “blow” to Indias prestige.Swaroopanand said Swaraj chose to wear outfits that catered to Iranian sensibilities but neglected Indias tradition.”Swaraj wrote outfits in Iran which followed the Iranian tradition and went against our own traditions. She thus delivered a blow to Indias prestige abroad,” he said.He compared Swaraj with former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who always wore clothes that reflected her “Indianness” during foreign visits.”Unlike her, Indira Gandhi on her foreign visits took great care to ensure that her Indianness reflects in her clothes and conduct,” the Shankaracharya said.Known to court controversies, Swami had recently said entry of women into the Shani Shingnapur temple in Maharashtra would lead to increase in crimes like rape against them.
