Press Association Despite it being his first game of the season, Liverpool failed to properly test the Spain international and he was fairly assured with the ball in hand. PRESENCE Had one slip in the second half which could have led to a goal but for most of the game up to that point he was a spectator. SHARPNESS A brilliant save from Danny Ings and another decent effort to deny Jordon Ibe showed despite his time in the wilderness he has lost none of his reflexes. OVERALL His return to the side was something of an anti-climax in many respects as he hardly had anything to do but his name was cheered to the rafters louder than any other player, representing the perfect comeback. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea made his first appearance of the season in the 3-1 win over Liverpool just hours after signing a new contact. Press Association Sport looks at how he handled his return to the side, having been minutes away from joining Real Madrid at the end of the transfer window. HANDLING

Great Britain produced a sensational run in the final of the 4x100m relay to take gold as Usain Bolt pulled up injured.All the attention was on Bolt and the pressure was on following his failure to win the 100m gold.However Britain flew out of the blocks and their perfect changeovers gave them a great chance going into the final 100m as they led both the USA and Jamaica.The USA pushed hard but as Bolt tried his hardest to make up the ground he pulled up, clutching his hamstring.He hobbled and went down in agony as Britain kept on going to hold off the USA and take gold.The British team clocked a time of 37.47s which is the third fastest time of all time. Britain, who came fifth in the Olympics last year, had looked in good form when qualifying but they were not expected to challenge Jamaica and the USA.CJ Ujah got Britain off to the perfect start before former Chelsea academy footballer Adam Gemili continued the pace.Third stage runner Daniel Talbot took the baton perfectly and gave Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake the chance to run for gold.As Talbot visibly screamed his team-mate on Mitchell-Blake held off the formidable Christian Coleman, unaware of Bolt’s plight, and secured a historic gold for Britain.

NEW DELHI: The Election Commission Tuesday turned down the AAP government’s request to release advertisements about summer camps in government schools prompting Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to write a letter to the poll body to reconsider its decision.The EC has pointed out that it has no objection to running summer camps which is part of AAP government’s Mission Buniyad Programme, subject to the condition that the appeal to send their wards to the camp has to be made to the parents through schools and not through print, TV or radio advertisements. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderSisodia, who is also Delhi’s Education Minister, questioned the “basis” on which the request has been rejected. “I feel extremely disappointed that the ECI chose to look at this issue from a very narrow political lens, completely ignoring the interest of lakhs of children largely from marginalised section of society. The success of the camp is contingent upon support of parents which is ensured through regular reach out to them by government using print media, TV and radio,” Sisodia said in a letter to the ECI. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsHe said by exercising your power to stop a simple message to the poor parents asking them to send their children to school during summer vacation, do you really think you are aiding in conducting free and fair elections? “The elections will be over in the next one month but the loss to lakhs of children cannot be compensated if you allow your unjustified decision to stay on,” he added. During a press conference, Sisodia said,”Did the EC even think for a while as to what mode to be adopted by the school to ask the poor parents to come to school in the first place?” The summer camps in Delhi government’s school, an initiative of the AAP dispensation will be organised from May 16 to June 9 for classes 3 to 8.
I wrote this week that Michael Sam, the Missouri defensive end who came out as gay in February, wasn’t certain to be picked in the NFL draft. Of those players at his position who had been rated as sixth-round picks before the draft — as Sam was — slightly less than 50 percent were chosen by an NFL team.I also wrote that I’d take Sam’s side of the bet given even odds:Personally, however, if the odds are something like 50-50 on Sam being drafted, I think I’d take his side of the bet. Why? A player only needs one team to draft him. A player like Sam who generates polarized opinions might have a better chance of being chosen in a late round by a team like the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks than one who everyone agrees is mediocre.Perhaps this counts as a “correct” (if well-hedged) prediction. But I got one thing pretty wrong. I assumed that Sam would be chosen by a team like the Patriots or the Seahawks or the San Francisco 49ers that play in an urban area especially tolerant toward gay people. But St. Louis was probably the best fit all along.How come? Public acceptance of homosexuality certainly varies from city to city and state to state. If we use support for gay marriage as a rough proxy, for example, I estimate that about 47 percent of voters approve of it in Missouri, as compared with 58 percent in California, 59 percent in Washington state and 66 percent in Massachusetts. (Obviously, the percentages are likely to be higher in cities such as San Francisco and Seattle specifically as opposed to the states as a whole. But that’s probably also true for St. Louis, which is considerably more liberal than the rest of Missouri.)What varies a lot more, however, is appreciation for University of Missouri football. Interest in the Tigers is about 50 times higher in Missouri than in the rest of the country, according to the number of Google searches.In other words, a higher percentage of people in St. Louis and elsewhere in Missouri will know of Sam as a football player and not just as a gay athlete. Here’s hoping that helps him to concentrate on what he does best.
OSU senior forward Julia McKinnon (17) controls the puck during a game against Minnesota on Oct 16 at the OSU Ice Rink. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe turn of the calendar hasn’t translated to better results for the Ohio State women’s hockey team, but it will get a two-game crack over the weekend against the bottom-feeder of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.OSU (7-17-0, 3-15-0) is set to travel to Mankato, Minnesota, over the weekend to take on Minnesota State. The Buckeyes swept the Mavericks (3-19-2, 0-17-1) in a home series in October, and they hope to have the same success this weekend. The Scarlet and Gray enter the weekend having only won one game in their last six contests, but they hold strong with the belief that their work in practice will begin to translate into in-game success.“We haven’t really let off the gas pedal as far as working the girls,” OSU assistant coach Carson Duggan said. “They’ve had a couple of really tough days of practice as far as battling and skating, and their work ethic has been great.”The Buckeyes are on an eight-game winning streak against the Mavericks and they believe that outworking their opponent will help extend the streak to 10 after this weekend.“First and foremost we have to outwork them,” Duggan said. “I thought this past weekend we played a really good brand of hockey and we just have to continue doing that and focus a little more on bearing down and putting pucks in the back of the net. Stick to our gameplan and we’ll hopefully have a successful weekend.”Struggling to light the lampLast weekend, OSU outshot St. Cloud State 25-20 in the first game and 37-17 in the second, but lost both contests 2-1. The team has been happy with its improved offensive production in terms of shots but is still looking to score more goals.“This week we’ve definitely focused on getting those gritty goals,” senior forward Julia McKinnon said. “Not all goals are going to be nice, so I think just getting greasy goals and going to the front of the net and continuing to shoot, one of them are going to go in.”Duggan said she thinks that beyond the ability to score goals, the team also needs to have the drive to put the puck in the back of the net.“It’s a skill but it’s also a will to want to score, you have to bear down and we’ve been really preaching that this week in practice,” Duggan said. “Some of the drills we’re doing are catering to getting more of those garbage goals around the crease versus just the shots from the outside. I think not staying on the perimeter as much and trying to insert ourselves more into the slot area. So that’s been a priority this week in practice and hopefully that translates this weekend.”OSU has scored just three goals in the last four games, so the team has made that one of the most crucial elements to improve upon.“You can’t win games only scoring one goal a game,” McKinnon said. “I think just moving forward we have to get those goals because you can’t win one-goal games”In the second game of the October series, OSU shut out Minnesota State. Duggan said she believes staying strong defensively depends on eliminating shots off rebounds.“If we continue to stick to the systems and play tough defense, let (sophomore goalie) Alex (LaMere) see all the shots and eliminate their second and third chances, I think that’s the recipe for success defensively,” Duggan said. “The girls know that, so I think they should be ready defensively.”The puck is scheduled to drop in Mankato at 3:07 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.Up nextOSU will continue to set up temporary residence in The North Star State the weekend after taking on the Mavericks when it is slated to travel to Duluth to face OSU coach Jenny Potter’s alma mater, Minnesota Duluth, which swept OSU in December. Puck-drop is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. on Jan. 29 and 5:07 p.m. the following day.

According to the announcement (currently on the company’s blog), “You’ll see a preview of exactly how things will appear to listeners before you hit submit. And even after your music goes live, you’ll be in full control of your metadata with simple and quick edits. Just like releasing through any other partner, you’ll get paid when fans stream your music on Spotify. Your recording royalties will hit your bank account automatically each month, and you’ll see a clear report of how much your streams are earning right next to the other insights you already get from Spotify for Artists.” (Check out the feature here.)The feature is free, and no limits are set on how much music an artist can upload.“We’ve tried to make it as simple and transparent as possible,” says Kene Anoliefo, the company’s Senior Product Lead, Creator Marketplace. “Artists can log in whenever they like and add song files, cover art, metadata and all that, and then hit ‘upload,’ and they can make changes after it goes live. We’ve also added a lot of transparency to royalties — artists can track their history in the dashboard and even see estimates for future payments, which can help them to plan and budget.”That, of course, puts much more responsibility on the artist for actually understanding how royalties work, no matter how simple the platform may seem. Joe Conyers, co-founder and GM of digital-rights management platform Songtrust and VP Technology of Downtown Music Publishing, says, “While it’s great to see more flexibility for the independent community to make decisions about independent licensing, the fact is this is still only one part of being fully DIY. Independent creators still need to collect thousands of types of royalties. This move will not include songwriter and publishing royalties which many independent creators and businesses continue to fail to collect from Spotify.”Kevin Breuner, VP of marketing at CD Baby, added, “At CD Baby, we have been managing relationships with artists for 20 years, especially artists who are emerging or wanting to reach a global market. We’ve built a community through a rich set of educational resources on our blog and podcast, and at our annual conference. These relationships are about a lot more than pushing files to a service. It’s easy to create an interface. It’s not so easy to deal with over 30,000 incoming contacts each month from a huge variety of artists of all backgrounds, genres, ages, and stages in their career, as we do.” UPDATED: Those of us who have never uploaded music to Spotify may not know that it doesn’t really work like, say, Facebook or a blog or even Soundcloud — an artist must go through a distributor or aggregator to have their music added to the platform.Well, those days will soon be over: The company today announced a new feature — currently in beta — that enables independent artists to upload their music directly to the platform via Spotify for Artists (see the landing page above). The company has already tested the feature with a few hundreds U.S.-based independent artists — including Noname, Michael Brun, VIAA, and Hot Shade — who gave their feedback, and in the coming weeks they will be inviting more — “make sure to join our mailing list so you’ll be the first to know about any new announcements,” the company stresses.
