I am happy, of course, about my players and about their work and togetherness today.“They gave their best, it was the same thing against Cardiff. I think against Cardiff, we lacked a little more freshness to have the efficiency and precision in their play – good pass, good touches, good control and good moves, all these things.“It was difficult also for Everton to find a solution against us because we defended very well, deep, with togetherness and quality.“After, I think it was difficult after our recovery to have good moves and it was important in the second half to try and use some good opportunities when we recovered the ball.“We tried to score. With the ball recovery and a good assist from Ricky (Ricardo Pereira), he gave a good ball with good timing and space for Jamie [Vardy]. We know the quality of Jamie in this situation.”

The Kahta Creek fire is burning approximately five kilometres south of another 6.5 hectare fire next to the Alaska Highway north of Buckinghorse River. While firefighters have completely surrounded the smaller fire with hoses, the Kahta Creek fire is currently uncontained, and has burned over 1,000 hectares. Reynolds said that the fire is currently burning in an easterly direction away from the Alaska Highway and not threatening any properties.The Milligan Hills fire, which is around 10 kilometres west of Milligan Hills Provincial Park, has also grown to over 1,000 hectares, though it is also not currently threatening structures at this time. Reynolds said that the Wildfire Service has made a request for two Incident Management Teams to be brought in to Fort St. John to deal with those two fires, which are the largest fires during near Fort St. John.A Conair Aerial Firefighting Avro RJ85 air tanker at the North Peace Airport. Photo by Chris NewtonCrews are also planning to begin attack operations on the Beatton River fire, which is located northwest of Prespatou near Nig Creek and has grown to around 500 hectares in size. Reynolds said that the fire has grown quickly because of windy conditions and the large amount of fuel in the area. Reynolds added that while several fires have grown quickly in size in the past few days, the current situation is much less dire than two years ago, since none of the fires are currently threatening any property. She said that crews are prepared for an anticipated spike in fire activity over the next month, as forecasters are calling for the usual pattern of increased thunderstorm activity heading into June. The Peace River Regional District also announced on its website this morning that it is currently monitoring the situation. It says that no evacuation alerts and no evacuation orders have been issued at this time, but that updates will be posted on the PRRD’s website and Facebook page. FORT ST.

Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav Saturday termed the BJP “schizophrenic” and alleged that the party tries to co-opt icons like Mahatma Gandhi, B R Ambedkar and Ram Manohar Lohia but follows people who these leaders disagreed with. The remarks by the SP chief came in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s blog in which he dubbed the efforts of regional parties to form a grand alliance with the Congress as “reprehensible”, saying socialist ideologue Ram Manohar Lohia would be “horrified” as most of these parties claim to be his followers. Accusing the BJP of practising double standards, Yadav wrote on Twitter, “I wonder which principles are being spoken of. The BJP seems to be schizophrenic.” “On the one hand they try to co-opt Gandhi Ji, Bhagat Singh, Sardar Patel, Dr Ambedkar and Dr Lohia and on the other hand they follow people who these leaders opposed and disagreed with.”
Sydney: Australia continued a string of “hottest ever” months in March, the government said Monday, as global warming emerges as the hot button issue in national elections just weeks away. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said the country had experienced the warmest March on record, with mean maximum and minimum temperatures above average for nearly all of the vast continent nation. BOM said the national mean temperature was 2.13 degrees centigrade (3.83 degrees Fahrenheit) above the long-term average for the month of March.

There was some relief for regions suffering from prolonged drought, however, as two tropical cyclones that struck northern and western Australia in March bought badly needed rains. “Unfortunately, the rain needed to reduce significant rainfall deficiencies in drought-affected areas is substantial and will require above average rainfall over a prolonged period to completely remove deficits at longer timescales,” BOM said.

The problem of climate change has emerged as a key issue in national elections due to be held by mid-May. The conservative coalition government of Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been reluctant to back steep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions blamed for contributing to global warming for fear this would hurt the country’s huge coal industry and undermine economic growth.
