‘I’m very happy at Bournemouth!’ – Eddie Howe commits to Cherries

first_img1 Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has no interest in upgrading clubs despite attracting the attention from a number of teams.Howe realised his early potential when he guided the South Coast club into the Premier League last season.And now, at the tender age of 37, he is one of the most exciting managers in England and, as a consequence, is being regularly tipped to leave for a side with a bigger budget than the Cherries.“My stance has always been very clear,” he told the Daily Echo.“While I am enjoying such a good relationship with the owner and the people who run the club, I am very happy here.“The job is an exciting and challenging one but I am absolutely where I want to be in terms of league and club. I am desperate to move this club forward even more and to continue the success we have had.“It is never about one person. It is a collective effort to produce a successful team. It requires everybody to move things forward and to help each other.”last_img read more

Jupiter clams up as craft passes by

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityPowered by heat rising from the planet’s interior, Jupiter’s atmosphere is full of “violent, vertical, energetic activity,” said JPL’s Kevin Baines, a planetary scientist. “We see bolts of lightning that are 10 times bigger than the biggest superbolts that we’ve seen on Earth,” he said. Previous missions had spotted lightning elsewhere on the planet, hidden beneath a 50-mile-thick layer of ammonia and ammonium hydrosulfide clouds. Though finding lightning at the poles fit theories about Jupiter’s toasty warm interior, Baines said, it was also a bit of a surprise. “We took those images actually to look at the aurora up at the poles, which we knew were there, and we saw lightning flashing away,” he said. Ironically, though, some long-expected Jovian features did not make an appearance for scientists during the late February flyby. “Jupiter was putting on a calm, serene face for us,” Baines said. “We were hoping for the same kind of roiling nature of Jupiter that we’ve seen every time we’ve gone by.” All the Jupiter-visiting missions of the past quarter century had returned images of numerous chaotic storm systems northwest of the planet’s famous Great Red Spot, he said. “We were going to sit and do movies and watch these storms come and go, watch them billow up and dissipate,” Baines said. “We get there and find we were faked out: Where were all the storms?” A broad band of white storm clouds around the mega-planet’s equator was also a fraction of its normal size. Shortly after New Horizons passed out of sight of Jupiter, Baines said, the features returned. “The southern regions in Jupiter that looked so calm is now roiling with the biggest plumes we’ve ever seen,” he said. The cause for Jupiter’s mellow months remains unknown. “There’s nobody up there that can really explain, it’s just the vagaries of the planet,” he said. “The heat’s coming from tens of thousands of miles down. It’s sort of like trying to predict when volcanos are going off.” New Horizon’s eagle eyes – fine-tuned for extracting details from tiny and dimly lit Pluto – also revealed new details about Jupiter’s rings, numerous moons and the comet-shaped magnetic field that encompasses the planet. Next stop for the mechanical space tourist is Pluto, in 2015. “We’re racing to Pluto to get there before the atmosphere collapses,” Baines said. Soon, the dwarf planet’s orbit will take it even farther from the sun, he said, and its thin, nitrogen-based atmosphere will settle onto the surface as snow. After that, Baines said, “it won’t have an atmosphere again for another couple hundred years.” elise.kleeman@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4451 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE – For the Pluto-bound New Horizons mission, Jupiter was foremost a power source, flinging the spacecraft toward the edges of the solar system with its powerful gravity. The rare close-up images of Jupiter taken by the JPL-managed craft revealed an uncharacteristically quiet side of the planet, scientists announced this week. But even a calm Jupiter is a stormy Jupiter. One of New Horizon’s discoveries during its Feb. 28 fly-by was the presence of massive lightning storms at the planet’s poles. last_img read more

Doctors of Anna Nicole investigated

first_imgSearches were carried out in Los Angeles and Orange counties “related to doctors who provided medical treatment or prescribed drugs for Anna Nicole Smith or her associates,” he said. Six locations were raided in Los Angeles County, said Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Agents have so far reviewed over 100,000 computer images and files, analyzed patient profiles and pharmacy logs and interviewed witnesses throughout the country and abroad, he said. Eroshevich’s attorney, Gary Lincenberg told KNBC-TV that the investigation only concerned whether prescriptions to Smith were proper. The current investigation could lead to state charges either in California or Florida or even federal charges if the government decides it wants to send a signal that overprescribing drugs won’t be tolerated, he said. Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley said in a statement that he will file charges “as appropriate,” after evaluating results of the search warrants.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Authorities did not name the doctors but their attorneys confirmed the searches. Smith died of an accidental drug overdose in February at a Florida hotel. She was 39. The department began investigating in March because “dangerous drugs … were part of the death of Anna Nicole Smith, and I learned that these were California doctors and California prescriptions,” Attorney General Jerry Brown said at a news conference. “We do know from the public record that there’s someone who’s dead and her body, upon investigation, is full of controlled substances and combinations of drugs that turned out to be illegal,” he said.

Bankruptcy fears fuel E-Trade plunge

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre E-Trade said it has a $3 billion portfolio of asset-backed securities, which includes about $450 million in complex financial instruments known as CDOs and second-lien securities. As the mortgages backing those investments have increasingly defaulted, the value of those securities declined, forcing firms to write down their value. E-Trade’s president and chief operating officer, Jarrett Lilien, said in a letter to clients Monday the firm could handle an immediate writedown of $1 billion and “still remain well capitalized.” Lilien added the company is taking “prudent measures to effectively manage the company’s balance sheet.” Early Monday, Citi Investment Research analyst Prashant Bhatia laid out a worst-case scenario for E-Trade, saying the writedowns and a Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry could lead to a significant number of clients closing accounts. Bhatia pegged E-Trade’s chances of filing for bankruptcy at 15 percent. But other analysts said the risk of a run on deposits was fairly low, exacerbated only by the Citi note itself. NEW YORK – Shares of online brokerage E-Trade Financial Corp. lost more than half their value Monday, with a Citigroup analyst saying customers were poised to flee and the company was at risk of bankruptcy. However, other analysts said the picture was not as bleak, and the company said assets actually improved in October. It also moved to reassure customers that it could withstand a substantial writedown of assets and remain in business. Shares of E-Trade tumbled 58.7 percent, or $5.04, to $3.55. Earlier in the session, shares fell as low as $3.46. Shares had traded between $8.02 and $26.08 during the past year. The online brokerage firm said Friday afternoon it would take an undisclosed writedown on a portfolio of securities and collateralized debt obligations, known as CDOs, backed by mortgages. Fox-Pitt, Kelton analyst David Trone said the risk of such a run was 5 percent before the Citi note but more like 20 percent afterward. Trone also discounted the chance of bankruptcy, although he said a $4 stock price implied a prediction by the markets of a 65 percent chance of insolvency. “The board would likely sell (E-Trade) before allowing bankruptcy,” he said in a client note. E-Trade was not available to comment on the Citi note. Bhatia was traveling and not available to comment, Citi said. Despite the gloomy predictions, E-Trade actually added accounts in October, the company reported Monday. E-Trade ended October with 4.7 million accounts, about 1 percent more than it had the previous month. Of the total accounts, about 1.07 million were deposit and lending accounts. Those are the accounts Bhatia said could dwindle soon.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Mailman accused of stealing cards

first_imgNEW YORK – Call it a special delivery. A postal carrier pocketed dozens of greeting cards he was supposed to deliver to get at the cash inside, postal inspectors said. He was found with more than 130 pieces of other people’s mail in his car, according to a court complaint. Michael Olivio was released on his own recognizance Thursday following his arrest the previous day, court records show. The exact charges against him were not listed in court records available early Saturday, and a spokesman for prosecutors did not immediately return a telephone call.
