Man Utd enjoy biggest league win over Chelsea for 54 years

first_imgA rejuvenated Manchester United side strolled to a 4-0 victory over Chelsea to open their Premier League campaign with a bang on Sunday, achieving their biggest league win over the Blues for over half a century in the process.Frank Lampard took the reins of Chelsea for the first time in a competitive fixture at Old Trafford after taking over from Maurizio Sarri at the start of the summer. Judging by Sunday’s performance, though, he has a lot of work on his hands as United punished the visitors for their profligacy in front of goal.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Marcus Rashford fired his side into the lead against the run of play in the first half, firing past Kepa Arrizabalaga from the penalty spot. Anthony Martial then doubled the advantage 65 minutes in, before Rashford and debutant Daniel James sealed a convincing win for the hosts as Chelsea’s resistance crumbled in the last half hour of proceedings. The result sent United flying up the league table on the opening weekend, with a margin of victory not seen for quite some time. 4-0 – Manchester United’s 4-0 victory was their biggest over Chelsea in a top-flight match since winning 4-0 in March 1965 under Matt Busby.

Hammered. pic.twitter.com/udmpr1dAo0 — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 11, 2019 United fans might also be cheered to know that Busby’s team went on to win the title that season, beating out Leeds United for the First Division crown by virtue of a superior goal average (goals scored divided by games played). And while the current United side may struggle to measure up to that heritage and the fabled Busby Babes, there are signs under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the team are returning to their youthful roots. United’s team against Chelsea had an average age of 24 years and 227 days, with Rashford, Martial, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and debutant Aaron Wan-Bissaka all 25 or younger.The exceptions were David de Gea, the oldest starter at 28, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire, who was pulling on the United shirt for the first time.24y 227d – The average age of Manchester United’s starting XI against Chelsea is 24 years and 227 days; the youngest of any team in the opening round of the 2019-20 Premier League season.

Everyday Stuff Proudly Made In America

first_imgWhat do the words “Made In America” mean to you?To me, they mean that the product in question was made in the United States of America.At least, that’s part of the story. The other part of the tale is that the people making those American products were paid here in America, and their wages will likely largely be spent here, too. It means a shorter distance for the goods to be shipped to domestic locations, and that means less energy consumed in the process (AKA a smaller carbon footprint). And it means products produced that will meet the rigorous standards of excellence that we (or at least many of us) here in the U.S. of A. demand of our goods.Related: 5 Badass Commanders In ChiefNow don’t get me wrong, I’m no xenophobic protectionist debutante* who rallies against anything produced west of California (oh right, Alaska. Oh RIGHT… and Hawaii) or east of Quoddy Head, Maine (look it up). I like a fine Scotch as much as the next fellow, and if you appreciate a fine pair of Italian leather loafers or some genuine Australian Vegemite, then indulge and enjoy! If you like the idea of buying American when it makes sense to do so, then you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised to find that many everyday necessities, like hats and luxury vehicles, are made in the Land of the Free, no free trade issues involved.For The Hirsute: BearditionIf you demand the best when it comes to beardcare, and you also love America, then you’re going to love Beardition. From their Soft+Sweet Beard Oil to their Really Good Beard Shampoo to their Even Better Beard Conditioner, everything the company offers is made right here in America. And that includes all of their packaging and printed materials, too. The Nashville, TN based company is dedicated to great beardcare products that are not only ‘Merican, but also all natural. Facial hair management presents a crowded marketplace these days; perhaps this brand’s American approach will help them stand out.For The Kids: Crayola CrayonsThat’s right, those beloved tubes of color you used to create many a masterpiece when young and which children today continue to love are made in Pennsylvania! The company was founded more than 130 years ago (it was originally named the Binney & Smith Company) and is today a subsidiary of Hallmark (also American). They have been producing crayons since 1903 and currently produce approximately three billion of the things each year, most of which are broken in half and in a drawer somewhere, but hey, still classic stuff — buy the kids a box with pride.For The Cowboy and/or Texan: Stetson HatsIt would be pretty durn unseemly if’n a cowpoke went about wearin’ a ten gallon made o’er there in Yugoslavia or whatnot, wouldn’t it? Never you mind that ol’ Yugoslavia was dissolved into multiple sovereign republics back in the 1990s following a devastating series of ethnically fraught conflicts, neither. Anyhow, a cowhand oughtta wear a cowboy hat made right here in America, and that’s why we’re so golshmuckin’ (?) happy to say that Stetson hats are still made here, just like John B. Stetson intended when he founded his eponymous company way back in 1865. Chances are that Stetson yer wearin’ today was made in Texas. And it it ain’t from TX, it’s from PA or MO. AKA it’s from here, durnit.For The Cook: Webber GrillsWouldn’t it be nice to know that the quintessentially American hamburger (named for the German city of Hamburg) you just prepared was cooked on grill made right here in America? If you used a Weber grill, those iconic bowl shaped grills usually black or red in color, then it was, sir. Weber started off back in the 1890s as a metal works company. They created their first charcoal grill in 1951, and the rest is history! Or rather, if you want to know the rest of the history, you can read up on your own time. We’ve got burgers to flip, see?For The Motorist: The TeslaIf you’ve got about a hundred grand sitting around and you need a new car, consider a Tesla Model S or X. Or you could hold out for a year or so and get yourself a Tesla Model 3, which should be priced much lower. Regardless of which vehicle you choose, you’ll be getting an all electric luxury vehicle that’s also all American. Tesla Motors is headquartered in California, produces its vehicles in America, and is in the process of actively expanding. (FYI, an optional “Ludicrous Mode” upgrade to the Model S allows for a 0 – 60 time of just 2.8 seconds. Which is very, very fast.)__________* A debutante or deb (from the French débutante, “female beginner”) is a girl or young lady from an aristocratic or upper class family who has reached the age of maturity and, as a new adult, is introduced to society at a formal “debut” presentation. – Thank you Wikipedia How to Cultivate Mid-Century Modern Style in Your Own Home 10 Best Beard Balms: The Secret to a Tamed and Tangle-Free Beard The Manual Spirit Awards 2019: The Best Craft Liquor Made in America The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Editors’ Recommendations The Ultimate Pillow Guide: The 6 Best Pillows for All Sleepers last_img read more

Dartmouth High Student Wins Prestigious Scholarship

first_imgA Dartmouth High School student is this year’s winner of a prestigious provincial scholarship recognizing leadership in multiculturalism and human rights. Justyne Leslie will accept the $6,000 Dr. P. Anthony (Tony) Johnstone Memorial Entrance Scholarship today, June 27, at her school’s graduation ceremony. “Justyne is an outstanding role model for today’s youth,” said Labour and Advanced Education Minister Frank Corbett. “Along with excelling in school, Justyne is a leader in human rights, multicultural and community development organizations.” For three years, Ms. Leslie maintained a more than 95 per cent average. “My ultimate goal is to be the voice of those who are unheard and the representative of those who are mistreated,” said Ms. Leslie. “I want to travel the world and go to places where the culture is rich and different to gain new perspectives and experience a whole new lifestyle.” Ms. Leslie’s volunteer activities included Dartmouth High School’s Human Rights Club and the Multicultural Club, and she was a key organizer for African History Month, a Mental Health Day Conference and the Ban the Bottle Campaign. She has received several awards for her leadership and athletic skills, including the Outstanding Leadership Award, Sportsmanship Award and Most Valuable Player in soccer. “Justyne has a strong sense of social justice, which is rare to see at her age,” said Eartha Monard, principal of Dartmouth High School. “She is a strong advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves and has a passion to direct her future goals to help others.” Ms. Leslie will attend Dalhousie University in the fall, working towards a bachelor of arts with a major in political science, and plans to pursue law school. To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must be living in Nova Scotia, graduating from high school and beginning an undergraduate degree program at a Maritime university in the fall. The applicant must also have demonstrated an interest in multiculturalism and human rights. This year, 54 eligible applications were reviewed. Nova Scotia established the scholarship in 1991 to honour the life and work of the late Tony Johnstone, a long-time educator and human rights advocate who devoted his life to promoting multicultural understanding and social equality.
