Ex-Chelsea striker Sutton: Lampard wouldn’t have signed Pulisicby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Chris Sutton does not believe that boss Frank Lampard would have signed Christian Pulisic.The American arrived at the club this summer, but his transfer was sealed in January with Borussia Dortmund.Pulisic has found it hard to earn game time at Chelsea, with the likes of Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Pedro preferred in the winger slots.And Sutton does not think the 21-year-old would have been a Lampard signing.”He has to prove himself,” Sutton told Radio 5 Live.”Frank Lampard has no agenda against him, he’s picking the best possible team to win games of football, that’s his job.”He wasn’t Frank’s signing, of course.”With [Callum] Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount coming to the fore, he’s going to have a major issue getting into the starting line-up. I really do think that. I don’t see a way in for him at the moment.”Fifty-eight million, a lot of money to spend and it would be interesting to ask Frank now if he would sign him at this moment in time if he hadn’t signed him before? The answer to that, I think, is pretty obvious – he wouldn’t.”But, there’s a reason Chelsea spent the money on him, he’s still a young man and got enormous talent, he has to go out and show it. It’s good for Frank in terms of strength in depth.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say

Paris Saint-Germain have announced the return of former AC Milan sporting director Leonardo, who replaces the outgoing Antero Henrique, rejoining the club after a six-year absence.The 49-year-old former Brazil international was sporting director in Paris for two years between 2011 and 2013, before he quit after being suspended by the French Football Federation for pushing a referee.The Ligue 1 champions took to Twitter to announce the long-expected return of the executive, who had spent the past two seasons in the same position at AC Milan.

His return, with his enthusiasm and talent, will bring the club into a new ambitious cycle and I am sure that this reunion will bring happiness to the Parc des Princes, which has always kept “Leo” in its heart.”Earlier on Friday PSG and Antero Henrique parted ways by mutual consent, the club announced.PSG won Ligue 1 in both seasons Henrique was at the helm, but failed to make an impression in the latter stages of the Champions League.The club thanked Henrique for his service and wished him well for the future.🗣 « ANNONCE LEONARDO ! »🤷♂️ OK…🤗 Bienvenue @leo_de_araujo ! pic.twitter.com/21W8KTso42 — Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_inside) June 14, 2019 “Paris Saint-Germain and Antero Henrique have decided to terminate their agreement by mutual consent,” the club statement reads. “In his two seasons as sporting director since joining Paris Saint-Germain on 2 June 2017, the Portuguese helped the men’s senior team to the Ligue 1 title in 2018 and 2019, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue wins in 2018 as well as the Trophee des Champions in 2017 and 2018.“The club thanks Antero Henrique for his professionalism and commitment over the past two years and wishes him all the best for his future projects.”Henrique’s time in Paris was marked by some startling transfers as PSG looked to become a European super power.Brazilian forward Neymar joined PSG for a world-record fee of €222m (£200m/$262m) in August 2017.Henrique and PSG weren’t finished with acquiring top-tier attacking talent there. Then-teenaged sensation Kylian Mbappe also made the move to the French capital from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco.Initially signed on a season-long loan, the French international made his move permanent on July 1 2018 for a fee of €180m (£166m/$212m).Henrique was also responsible for the hiring of Thomas Tuchel as head coach at the start of the 2018-19 season, though there has been speculation of a rocky relationship between the two.It is reported that Henrique has an offer to become sporting director of Chinese club Shanghai SIPG.

(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)We’re in the doldrums of the college football offseason, with spring football over and fall camps still a couple of months away.Simply put: there’s basically nothing going on right now.So, let’s get some talk going on a topic everyone loves to debate: uniforms.Few things are better at driving up some offseason discussion than uniform designs.

Because Alabama looks almost unbeatable, some of the other likely College Football Playoff participants have actually gotten undersold a bit. Clemson football looks terrifying today though.Florida State is in a serious down year, as it looks to transition from the Jimbo Fisher era to new head coach Willie Taggart.Still, it would have been hard to see anything like today’s game happening.With just under nine minutes left in the game, Clemson is up 59-3 on its ACC Atlantic rival. It is one point shy of the all-time biggest blowout in the series.Clemson now challenging for the most lopsided victory by either team in the Clemson-Florida State series. FSU owns it with a 57-0 win in 1993. Clemson is now sitting on a 56-point lead.— Kevin McGuire (@KevinOnCFB) October 27, 2018Things are so bad that the “highlight” for Florida State today is probably the fan that was caught on camera with his shirt off, reading a book in the stands.As the Tigers roll ahead to the win, Kirk Herbstreit took to Twitter to rave about this Clemson football performance.His tweet came in the third quarter, when the Tigers were merely up 45-0.Clemson gettin after it today at Tally. Still in 3rd up 45-0. Defense has been DOMINANT!! Trevor Lawrence calmly thrown for over 300 yards. This is a mismatch at the LOS! Wow!! Back to back weeks now Tigers gettin things goin!! In other news. Noles look awful!— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) October 27, 2018Freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence gets better by the week. Today, he was 20-for-37 for 314 yards and four touchdowns.Back-up Chase Brice he thrown for 90 yards and a touchdown, and the Tigers have run for three more scores on the ground.If a team can compete with Alabama this year, and that is a huge if, Clemson’s probably your best bet once again.
Samsung Galaxy M series launch on January 28: 5 reasons you should wait for the M10, M20The Galaxy M series global debut will happen in India on January 28 where it is widely expected to see the launch of the Galaxy M10 and M20 smartphones. advertisement Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiJanuary 23, 2019UPDATED: January 23, 2019 12:05 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Galaxy M10 and M20 are the first Samsung phones with waterdrop displaysThe Galaxy M10 price in India to start at Rs 8,990, M20 to start at Rs 12,990The Galaxy M20 is said to come with a massive 5,000mAh battery2019 is going to be a pretty important year for Samsung as the company celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy series, while at the same time making a stronger pitch to take on Chinese competition that has been taking a major chunk of the market away from the South Korean giant. Next month is going to be all about the Galaxy S10 lineup, but before we get to that, Samsung is planning to disrupt the affordable segment with the Galaxy M series. The Galaxy M series global debut will happen in India on January 28 where it is widely expected to see the launch of the Galaxy M10 and M20 smartphones.The Galaxy M series is Samsung’s bid to start something new and introduce some new technologies in the budget segment to draw consumers away from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme and Nokia. The Galaxy M10 and M20 are shaping up to be those phones as they are going to bring a few first-time features like Infinity-V displays and a massive battery capacity, never seen on a Samsung phone before. Here are 5 reasons why you should wait for the Galaxy M10 and M20.- Based on the teasers from Samsung, the Galaxy M-series aims to attract the youth. This means Samsung will most likely bring some changes to the design of its budget phones from what we once knew before. The design of the M10 and M20 is expected to keep in line with the current trend, which is why Samsung is finally adopting the notch with its Infinity-V display. Apart from that, the Galaxy M series will also bring some much-needed features like a Type-C port with fast charging technology, something that is pretty rare to see in the affordable segment, and something we have definitely not seen on a previous affordable Samsung phone.advertisement – The display will of course be the biggest highlight of the Galaxy M10 and M20. It is pretty clear that both the phones will be the first Samsung phones to sport the company’s new Infinity-V display. The ‘V’ stands for the V-shaped waterdrop notch on the display, something that became a trend in the second half of 2018. The Infinity-V display will look to provide an immersive screen with minimal bezels and more screen real estate. While Samsung won’t be the first to bring the waterdrop display to the budget segment, it is still one of the very few brands to do so, which consumers will likely appreciate.– Another feature Samsung is really highlighting in its teasers is the battery. It has been rumoured multiple times that the Galaxy M20 will be Samsung’s first phone to come with a massive 5,000mAh battery. The M10 may not get the same capacity and is rumoured to get a smaller yet significant 3,400mAh battery, which should be pretty sufficient for a phone that is likely to come with a 720p display.– Samsung has already confirmed in the past that its M-series phones will have at least dual rear camera, so the Galaxy M10 which is expected to fall under Rs 10,000 will get dual optics on the back. Based on what rumours have told us, the phones will get a 13MP + 5MP configuration on the back and a possible 5MP sensor on the front. Interestingly, some reports suggest that the phones may offer a secondary camera with an ultra wide-angle lens, which would be quite unique to see in this segment.– Pricing will be crucial if Samsung is serious about taking on the competition in the affordable segment. Sources close to India Today Tech revealed the prices of both the Galaxy M10 and M20. According to our sources, the Galaxy M10 will be priced at Rs 8,990 while the Galaxy M20 will cost Rs 12,990 in India. These are likely the prices for the base models, in case the Galaxy M10 and M20 come in more than one variant. What past rumours have suggested is that the Galaxy M20 will come with 3GB of RAM with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.ALSO READ | Exclusive: Samsung to launch Galaxy M10 at Rs 8,990, M20 at Rs 12,990ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy M20 live image reveals dual rear cameras, fingerprint sensorGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

IPL 2019: Chennai wasn’t a 70-run wicket during the opener, says Harbhajan SinghVeteran Chennai Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh ran through the Royal Challengers Bangalore top-order, dismissing Virat Kohli, Moeen Ali and AB de Villiers on a difficult batting wicket at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday. advertisement Press Trust of India ChennaiMarch 24, 2019UPDATED: March 24, 2019 11:52 IST IPL 2019, CSK vs RCB: Harbhajan Singh picked up three wickets to help CSK clinch a 7-wicket win on Saturday (IANS Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHarbhajan Singh picked up three wickets as RCB were bowled out for 70 on a rank turner at ChepaukNo one has a problem with why so many runs are being made: Harbhajan on Chepauk wicketCSK clinched a seven-wicket win after they gunned down the 71-run target in 17.4 oversThe slowness of the Chepauk track might be attracting a lot of criticism but veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said while the wicket was difficult to bat, it was not unplayable.Rival captains Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli expressed their disappointment over the wicket here after the opening match of the Indian Premier League turned out to be damp squib last night.After Royal Challengers Bangalore got bundled out for 70 in 17.1 overs.Chennai Super Kings achieved the target in 17.4 overs, winning by seven wickets.”See, it was a difficult pitch to bat on but it wasn’t like it was unplayable. We’re so used to watching matches on good wickets where no one complains when people score 170-180. But if it spins or seams a little, everyone has a problem, saying why is this happening?,” Harbhajan said at the post match press conference.”No one has a problem with why so many runs are being made. So people actually forget that the bowler also has a job in cricket. Batsmen should struggle once in a while so that they understand that it should be a battle of bat and ball.”In some places, yes, they played some rash shots as well. It was not that this was a 70 runs wicket. You’ll get at least 120 if you apply yourself,” Harbhajan, who won the man-of-the-match award for his spell of three for 20, said.Honestly didn’t expect it to turn so much: HarbhajanThe 38-year-old admitted that he and his team were surprised at the amount of turn they got from the pitch.advertisement”It was a wicket where it was holding a bit. We honestly didn’t expect it to turn so much as it did today. We played a practice match here and the wicket was a good one. We would have preferred to play on a wicket that wouldn’t spin as much as this did. Hopefully it would be better hereafter.”Harbhajan, who did not have a great season in the 2018 edition of the IPL, said it was nice to be on the winning side and contributing to the team’s cause.”It is nice to be on the winning side and contributing, especially taking the wickets of Virat (Kohli), AB (de Villiers) and Moeen (Ali)…top-order batters. This is the kind of performance that is expected from me, being the senior bowler in the side.”Though people might think that I am old but the experience is something I have gained over the years, which no one can take away from me. I am glad to contribute to the win,” said the CSK tweaker.Jadeja could be key member for India at 2019 World Cup: HarbhajanHarbhajan praised his teammate Ravindra Jadeja, who took two wickets in the game, to be a key member of the Indian team in the upcoming World Cup in England.”I feel someone like Ravindra Jadeja is always in the game as long as he is looking to spin the ball. He is someone, though I don’t want to talk way too much about the World Cup, I feel he could be a key member for the Indian team to win that. He bowls, bats and is a brilliant fielder, a gun fielder. Finger spinners should be given the responsibility and they will deliver,” said Harbhajan.Meanwhile, RCB assistant coach Vikram Solanki said the pitch was far from ideal for batting.”I don’t think we played well enough and CSK were by far the better side. We were surprised by spin and lack of pace and it spun far more than we thought. It was probably not an ideal pitch as it was not an even contest. You need an opportunity to score as well,” he said.Solanki, however, felt that his team could have done better if it had managed to get one good partnership.”Perhaps 120-130 would have been enough, but batting first in the first game in the tournament we needed to be brave and say maybe should have looked to get to 100 and look at things. We needed just one partnership and if necessary could have even played ugly and dug in to stop the rut of constant wickets.”Insisting that there were some positives which could be taken from the game, Solanki said, “It is not ideal. There are some positives though. (Yuzvendra) Chahal bowled a wonderful spell. Moeen (Ali) also bowled well and (youngster Navdeep) Saini bowled with pace. Far from an ideal performance but we have to move on.Also Read | ‘It all went WROGN for RCB’ vs CSK in IPL 2019 opener, feels Sanjay ManjrekarAlso Read | Nice of CSK to play me in the 1st match: Harbhajan Singh after heroics vs RCBAlso See:advertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Rashid Khan, the most dangerous bowler in the SRH camp, was targetted early in his first over by Shane Watson and both men were fired up.Rashid Khan glared at Shane Watson after he hit him for a boundary off only his 2nd delivery and it was soon a public verbal joust even as the over ended.What’s going on, mate?#CSKvSRH pic.twitter.com/nz9HVrh6c5IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 23, 2019Rashid Khan, in his next over, bowled a beautful googly to remove Suresh Raina, who was looking in sublime touch.

Shane Watson, meanwhile, smashed 96 and scripted CSK’s 6-wicket win at the Chepauk.This was not the first time Shane Watson got involved in a sledge-fest this season.advertisementLast month, Shane Watson had somehow managed to rile up Delhi Capitals fast bowler Ishan Sharma.

ISSF World Cup: Sanjeev Rajput says change in approach to standing position helped him in RioSanjeev Rajput won India’s 8th quota place in shooting for Tokyo Olympics on Thursday when he shot a silver in the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions at ISSF World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. advertisement Next Press Trust of India Rio de JaneiroAugust 30, 2019UPDATED: August 30, 2019 16:26 IST Sanjeev Rajput won a silver in the men’s men’s rifle 50m 3 positions event at ISSF World Cup in Rio (@OfficialNRAI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSanjeev Rajput won India an Olympic quota in men’s 50m rifle 3 positions eventRajpt finished with 462 in the final, 0.2 less than gold medalist Petar GorsaOne of Rajput’s shot was recorded as zero in the ISSF World CupIndia’s latest Olympic quota holder, Sanjeev Rajput on Friday said he was “under pressure and disturbed” after one of his shots was recorded as zero due to a scoring equipment malfunction in the ISSF World Cup here.Staging a remarkable recovery, Rajput secured India’s eighth Olympic quota in shooting with a silver medal in the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions event of the World Cup on Thursday.The 38-year-old shot 462 in the final to finish second on the podium behind Petar Gorsa of Croatia (462.2).”I was a little disturbed throughout the qualification as one of my shots was recorded as a zero,” the two-time Olympian said.”We then protested and fired an extra shot, which was a 10 and I qualified comfortably.”In fact we are still in protest and my score should be 1181 and not 1180.”Rajput could have won the gold but for an 8.8 in the last shot, which saw him miss his second World Cup yellow metal, after the one he had won in 2011, by a slender 0.2 point margin to Gorsa, who had won the Olympic quota in air rifle.”It was a delay shot. You have a timing in your mind – like a whole shot process should conclude in say 30-40 seconds,” he said.”When that sequence gets disturbed, the release gets delayed by a fraction – these things can happen in shooting. It is a matter of the tiniest fractions.”The former Indian Navy marksman rallied after a poor start in the final, where he hit the 9s in his first three shots.”There was pressure as I was playing in a final after a long time,” Rajput said.advertisementChange in approach to standing position helped me: RajputHe said a change in approach to shooting in standing position has helped him in the final.”I have made some changes to the way I am approaching the standing position. I was aware that it was my weak area,” Rajput said.”So today even though I knew that the difference was big going into the standing position, I followed the entire process judiciously – you know the whole sequence leading up to the shot release and I guess that helped.”Asked what he thinks about Indian shooting’s recent surge, he said the country’s shooters now go for the top prize.”I think the biggest difference is that now everyone wants to win. When I started it was more about preserving your place in the side. Now they are looking at gold,” he said.”This change in approach is the biggest reason that medals are coming.”Rajput thanked his coach, the national federation (NRAI) and Sports Authority of India (SAI) for his success.”I am very happy especially to do it on National Sports Day. I had a barrel exchange last month thanks to the Tops Scheme and that has helped a lot.”So I want to thank the SAI and the NRAI for the constant support. And also my coach Oleg (Mikhailov). He has always kept faith in me,” Rajput said.Also Read | ISSF World Cup: Abhishek Verma wins gold, Saurabh Chaudhary bronzeAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Carbon Fiber Explained: Why It’s the Perfect Outdoor Gear Material Editors’ Recommendations You Definitely Need a Shirt Jacket for Fall 15 Best Subscription Boxes for Men Who Love Gifts Peace and serenity can be overrated. Although not everyone wants to hear the sweet western plucking of “Hotel California” or the new-age twee of “Wagon Wheel” while sitting fireside, music is undoubtedly a part of the classic camping experience. However, despite the rich, full-bodied tones of a seasoned dreadnought, lugging around your beloved six-string to the nearest camping spot or while trekking 40 miles through the luscious evergreens of the Pacific Crest Trail is anything but convenient (let alone practical). Thankfully, the marketplace of travel guitars is burgeoning with an opulent, mahogany-lined — and carbon fiber constructed — array of quality options catered to the diehard musician who refuses to hit the backcountry without a pint-sized option for channeling their inner Denver or Dylan. They may never replicate the full-size experience, but they’ll surely fare better amid the humid, dust-strewn trails of the rugged outdoors than your stay-at-home axe. The Martin Steel String BackpackerSometimes it’s all in the name. Measuring 24″ and weighing in at an astonishing 2.5 pounds, the lightweight travel guitar features the Pennsylvania-based company’s renowned craftsmanship and founding desire for quality construction. Encased in a simple cigar box-like design, the six-string instrument features a solid spruce top and a narrow 15-fret, mahogany neck with an accompanying width measuring just over 2 inches at the body. Though it may lack the heavy bass of it’s larger peers, it’s remarkably compact and sturdy, and capable of producing vibrant sound easily beguiling it’s minuscule appearance and affordable price tag. Martin even offers a nylon-stringed alternative with light, yet whimsically pleasant, tonal qualities. MSRP $330The Alpaca GuitarWilderness and instruments may not sound like a perfect pairing, but the handmade Alpaca Guitar lays any environmental qualms you may have to rest. The sterling, carbon fiber six-string is constructed to withstand the most rugged of natural elements, carrying flax fabric and bio-derived resins in tow for resisting water, dirt, bumps, bruises, and other commonplace obstacles you’ll likely encounter on the trail. Weighing 2.6 pounds, the lightweight guitar boasts an ergonomic, 20-fret design constructed of stainless steel, and showcases a three-point paracord system for directly securing the instrument to your rucksack or pack. The Alpaca’s 32-inch length only aids the beautifully-lush sound, helping deliver excellent mid-range without sacrificing treble. MSRP $575The Baby TaylorHaving been a heralded staple in the guitar world for nearly 40 years, the California-based Taylor is no stranger to producing a high-quality instrument on par with the likes of Gibson and Martin. The company’s ¾-size Baby Taylor lives up to the title, albeit with a 33 ¾-inch length and 19 ebony-lined mahogany frets. The six-string is impeccably constructed for its size given its laminated sapele back, Sitka Spruce top, and slightly arched design, while producing rich, earthy flourishes whether played in obscure tunings or high-strung to a tee. It’s not the most compact of the travel of guitars, nor is it one you’ll likely want to lug exhaustive distances through the mountains, but it’s perfectly suited for those those long nights of whiskey-fueled comradely. MSRP $400The Blackbird RiderLooks aren’t everything, especially when you consider just what the Blackbird Rider is capable of. The compact, ⅔-size guitar sports a unibody carbon-fiber framework, along with a resonance-driven hollow neck and an innovative, stereo sound port for reducing standing waves. It sounds superb, showcasing balanced tone and surprisingly-robust bass, along with an otherwordly sustain exceeding many full-bodied wooden alternatives. It can prove awkward while resting on your lap, yet it’s extremely ultra-light — weighing in just shy of 3 pounds — and built to endure the extreme humidity and temperature fluctuations of the outdoors. Though the 35 ½-inch length renders it a bit long, it also sacrifices little in terms of what matters most: natural sonic response. MSRP $1,600The Vagabond Standard Steel StringIf Neil Young, Trey Anastasio, and Dylan using a Vegabond isn’t enough of an endorsement for luthier Kevin Smith’s homemade travel guitars, we don’t know what is. The Vermont-based woodworker and his daughter have been crafting the rugged guitars since the early ’80s, producing streamlined guitars built of four differing woods — spruce for the top, mahogany for the neck, rosewood for the fretboard, and birch for the back and sides — while measuring roughly 33 inches in the length. Weighing a staggering 2 pounds, the Vegabond is one of the lightest guitars we’ve come across, and one well suited for modest excursions given it’s small frame and excellent, natural resonance. Plus, we doubt any big-name manufacturer is going to offer you a one-year warranty and an unconditional, satisfaction guarantee like Smith will.

6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now 5 Ways to Rent an RV for Your Next Road Trip If You Haven’t Visited the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, What Are You Waiting For? The Best Campgrounds Near Major U.S. Cities Planning a road trip? You might find some of these other guides useful. Here’s everything you might need to plot a cross-country journey, a family vacation, or a solo trek.There’s no better way to experience America than on a road trip.The feel of the wind in your hair, the smell of Oak savannas and sagebrush and cedar wood as you pass from climate zone to climate zone, the vast horizon spreading out before you, the road rolling endlessly on–all these aspects combine together to create the perfect symbol of the country’s freedom and vastness and lasting-ness.But, contrast the beauty of the road trip with its contingent realities and you wind up realizing you’ve spent hours in a hot cramped car, feeding off of cheap fast food and gas station sandwiches, and sleeping fitfully in lonely highway hotels. Not so with a camper van rental from GoCamp Camper Vans.Founded by Deborah Kane in 2017 in Portland, Oregon, GoCamp Camper Vans looks to be in the running for the title of “the Airbnb for camper vans.” With GoCamp, you simply reserve a van, pay a deposit, pick the van up, and go. The vehicles are completely stocked with everything you would need to head out camping that very day (except food). With kitchen items such as pots, pans, cutting boards, utensils, and dish soap, as well as bedding and towels for four, a small camp table, four camp chairs, two headlamps and other camping items, GoCamp sets you up with everything you need to do your camping road trip right. Many of the camper vans offer pop-up tops, allowing for you to sleep even more comfortably (and bring along the kiddos) than you probably would in a roadside hotel, and all vehicles have propane stoves to help with your non-campfire cooking.I met Kane prior to taking her personal Grand Ronde campervan out for a trip through California’s Redwoods that continued down the Lost Coast, and ended inland at Yosemite National Park. Kane, a petite powerhouse of a politico and outdoorswoman (who is just at home in a class IV rapid as she is at the USDA), gave me the scoop on the inspiration for the business as well as a rundown on how it works, its cost, and the tremendous benefit it affords those who aren’t able to own or keep a classic camper van.Kane was inspired to create the business as she says, “After a successful career in public service that had me flying back and forth across the country nearly constantly, I decided I didn’t want to get on another airplane for a very long time. I am, however, always interested in hitting the road for a camping trip,” and thus GoCamp was born. But, putting GoCamp together wasn’t just for her own benefit, Kane also feels that, most camper van owners don’t get enough usage out of their vehicles to make them a worthy investment. GoCamp Camper Vans eliminates that feeling of not getting your money’s worth by allowing you, a camper van owner, to offer your own van up for rent on the site. Ah, the beauty of the sharing economy!But, for those of you without a camper van, GoCamp is your one-stop shop for snagging a Vanagon and hitting the road.GoCamp Camper Van Interior/FacebookHow It WorksReserve: Rates are $150 per day during the low season (November-April) and $170 per day during the high season (May-October). Reservations can be made here and most vans have a three-day minimum reservation. (GoCamp Camper Vans are currently located in the Portland, Oregon area, with plans to expand nationwide.)Pay: You pay 50% of the total rental fee at the time of booking. You pay the remainder, plus the security deposit, 30 days before the rental period, or, if booking with less than 30 days to go, at the time of booking.Plan: You’ll get a detailed list of everything that is included in the van, as well as an orientation on how to operate and care for all the van’s features.Go Camp!All GoCamp Eurovans and Vanagons are personally inspected by Kane and her team and are guaranteed to be in good working condition, so you never have to worry about a break-down. But, if you’re the type with anxiety (we understand), you have the option of signing up for roadside assistance for a small daily fee, giving you peace of mind.If you’re planning on exploring the Pacific Northwest any time soon and are interested in getting out into the outdoors, stop by GoCamp and take a look around. You’ll be surprised how much more affordable a road trip vacation can be when you’re riding around in your own accommodations. And, with GoCamp, you’ll never have to set up another tent in the dark again. Two words: worth it. Editors’ Recommendations Score an RV Rental for $1 Per Day With Secret Repositioning Deals

If you’re interested in a unique camping experience with five of your best mates, look no further than England’s The Big Green Bus.Located two hours south of London in the Sussex countryside, The Big Green Bus is a decommissioned, 1982 West Midlands metro double-decker that has been transformed into a jaw-dropping cabin. This high-end “glamper” is outfitted with the best amenities, including a full kitchen, toilet, shower, and wood-burning stove. The lounge of the converted bus is stocked with books, board games, and an optional picnic basket that includes produce and locally sourced wine and cider.The brainchild of carpenter Adam Collier-Woods, The Big Green Bus was designed to be a comfortable cabin without losing its original charm. Collier-Woods completely renovated the bus all on his own and kept many of the original elements in place, such as the stairs, signage, driver’s seat, and windows. The dining area features reupholstered bus seats. A bright, retro color palette makes the space feel airy and open, not at all cramped like you would expect a bus to feel. The goal was to create a peaceful retreat in the middle of the woods, a place to unwind and enjoy nature — there is no Wi-Fi or television on the bus.But you won’t miss technology in such a beautiful location. The bus is set in the rolling hills of the South Downs area of Sussex. You’ll be able to spend your days walking or biking with plenty of pubs along the way). The Big Green Bus is just 30 minutes from the coast, giving you the opportunity for a day trip to check out the pier, restaurants, shops, and pubs of Brighton. There is also a popular farmer’s market in Lewes, a short 10-minute drive away — a great chance to stock up the bus’s fridge with food for the weekend.Once you’ve taken in the surroundings and are back at camp, The Big Green Bus offers several niceties to help you unwind. The campsite includes a fire pit, outdoor heated shower, and a wood-fired hot tub — the ultimate way to relax after a long day of exploring.

Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, says the Ministry’s disaster preparedness plans are in high gear, as the country braces for an overly active hurricane season.“As it stands now, we are beefing up our non-perishable supplies and our meetings continue with the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) to ensure the training of (our field personnel),” he informed.The Minister was addressing journalists on Thursday, June 6, at the weekly Jamaica House press briefing held at the Office of the Prime Minister.He informed that the Ministry is always ready to work with its various partners, including the Salvation Army, Jamaica Red Cross and ODPEM, to ensure that relief supplies are available to those residents, who have been affected.“We are also ready to assist with the recovery process as it relates to damage to houses and property,” he stated.Meanwhile, the Meteorological Service is predicting an above average hurricane season, with some 20 storms on the horizon.Head of the Weather Branch at the Meteorological Service, Evan Thompson, informed that forecasts show a 50 per cent above normal chance for the development of a tropical cyclone this year.“Normally where we would see about 12 systems developing, this year. We are likely to have as many as 20 tropical storms develop during the hurricane season,” he informed.Additionally, Mr. Thompson said there is a 100 per cent above normal chance of the development of a major hurricane this season.“So, whereas we would normally have maybe two to three of the hurricanes developing into major hurricanes – Category three, four or five – this year, we could have as many as six developing,” he said.Mr. Thompson said there is a very strong likelihood that the Caribbean will be directly impacted by a major hurricane and is therefore urging Jamaicans to ensure that they are properly prepared to mitigate any disaster,” he said.Last year, which was considered the third most active hurricane season on record, there were some 19 tropical storms. The 2005 season was the most intense season on record, with five of the season’s seven major hurricanes – Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma, causing significant damage.In Jamaica, Hurricane Dennis caused flooding and landslides and severely impacted the agricultural sector and road infrastrucure.The 2013 hurricane season, which officially began on June 1, ends on November 30.Contact: Athaliah Reynolds-Baker

zoom The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board (DMAIB) has released a report on the fire on board the Danish flagged container ship EUGEN MÆRSK that occurred on 18 June 2013.The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board carries out investigations with a view to preventing accidents and promoting initiatives that will enhance safety at sea. The investigations of the Board procure information about the actual circumstances of accidents and clarify the sequence of events and reasons leading to these accidents. The investigations are carried out separate from the criminal investigation. The criminal and/or liability aspects of accidents are not considered.On the morning of 18 June 2013, the crew on the EUGEN MÆRSK discovered a container fire on the aft cargo deck. At the time the ship was in the Gulf of Aden, underway from Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia to Rotterdam, the Netherlands.In the days leading up to the fire, the ship had passed some rough weather resulting in substantial damage to cargo containers and their lashings.The crew commenced the firefighting effort and managed to contain the fire. The vessel was allowed to enter the Port of Djibouti where they received assistance from local firefighters and Dutch salvage experts. The fire was extinguished on 23 June 2013.No persons were injured in the fire. There was no pollution and only limited damage to the ship’s structure. A total of 16 cargo containers were damaged or destroyed.Investigations into the causes and origin of the fire have revealed two likely main scenarios :1) The fire started as a result of friction heat created by the collapse of the container stacks. This ignited the contents of the containers and the fire developed from there.2) The fire was initiated at an early stage, perhaps even before the containers were loaded on board. After having slowly smouldered for a long time, the collapse of the containers created a sudden burst of oxygen which made the fire flare up and develop. In both scenarios the collapse of containers is considered a major contributing factor to the fire.The DMAIB’s main focus in this investigation has been the significance of learning from managing adverse situations, organizational flexibility and adaptability, and the challenges ship crews face when dealing with their everyday tasks.Read the reportDMAIB, April 21, 2014
