0Shares0000Tottenham and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been ruled out of action for the rest of the year © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 7 – Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be sidelined for the rest of the year after suffering a dislocated elbow in a dismal defeat at Brighton on Saturday.Lloris was stretchered from the field screaming in pain after dropping a cross before falling backwards and landing badly as he conceded Brighton’s opening goal at the Amex. “Hugo Lloris has undergone further assessment this morning after sustaining a dislocated elbow in our match against Brighton on Saturday,” Tottenham said in a statement on Monday.“The findings have shown that although surgery will not be required, our club captain has suffered ligament damage and is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.“Hugo is currently in a brace and will now undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation under the supervision of our medical staff at Hotspur Way.”The news is another hammer blow to Tottenham’s hopes of turning around a poor start to the season.Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won just three of their opening 11 games in all competitions and were thrashed 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.Argentine stopper Paulo Gazzaniga will now assume the role of Pochettino’s first-choice goalkeeper for the forseeable future.Lloris will also miss Euro 2020 qualifiers for France against Iceland, Turkey, Albania and Moldova.“It is difficult to say exactly how long he will not be available,” said France boss Didier Deschamps on Monday.“What matters to us right now is that he will not be with us for this round of games or for the next.”0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Palestinian policemen went on a rampage over the killing of a colleague and seized the Gaza-Egypt border crossing for several hours Friday, forcing European monitors to flee in the latest sign of growing mayhem in the coastal strip. A British aid worker and her parents were released from captivity and brought to Israel early today, days after Palestinian gunmen seized the family in the southern Gaza Strip, officials said. A previously unknown group calling itself the Mujahedeen Brigades Jerusalem Branch claimed responsibility for the kidnappings and threatened to abduct more foreigners if Israel doesn’t end its “no-go” zone in the northern Gaza Strip. Friday’s border takeover and the kidnapping of the Britons fed worries that chaos in Gaza may be spreading to outsiders brought in to help develop the area following Israel’s pullout.

In new violence, a 14-year-old boy was killed Friday when a powerful Palestinian family attacked a local police station for a second straight day. Their assault the previous day caused the death of the police officer that set off the furious eruption by police Friday. About 100 policemen stormed the Rafah border terminal in the morning, firing in the air and taking up positions at the crossing, security officials and witnesses said. The unarmed European observers – responsible for enforcing terms of the Israeli-Palestinian agreement that opened the border recently – took refuge in a nearby Israeli military base, forcing the terminal to halt operations. The police withdrew peacefully from the border after about three hours. Several hours later, the Europeans reopened the crossing, said Julio De La Guardia, a spokesman for the observers. The unrest could threaten international efforts to help rehabilitate Gaza, whose economy is in tatters as it emerges from five years of heavy fighting with Israel. Under the leadership of former international envoy James Wolfensohn, donors have pledged $3 billion annually for Palestinian reconstruction projects, mostly in Gaza, for the next three years. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The numbers are pretty dramatic: By the end of the year, sales of dedicated ebook reading devices will have dropped 36% from 2011. Come 2016, says IHS, total e-reader sale volume will be just two-thirds of what it was last year.Yikes. Is this really the death of e-readers? It makes perfect sense that e-reader sales are falling off a cliff. Tablets are eating their lunch. Not only has Apple sold 84 million iPads to date, but the companies who have dominated the e-reader market are themselves shipping tablets now. Consumers are quite naturally drawn to these multi-function, multimedia-capable gadgets that can stream movies, browse the Web, take photos, play Letterpress and do just about anything else app developers can dream up. And yes, those same devices – whose prices keep falling – let you read books too. My iPad Is Great, But I Really Want A KindleWhen Steve Jobs first unveiled the iPad, I thought it was absurd. Never would I need to supplement my laptop and iPhone with this giant iPod Touch, I declared.Today, I use my iPad constantly. It serves as my alarm clock, morning newspaper, TV content provider, futuristic radio, bedtime magazine, digital cookbook and much else. It even helps me do my job. What an incredible gizmo. But you know what’s the very top of my wish list? Amazon’s Kindle Paper White. An e-reader of the very sort whose grave is allegedly being dug by my shiny new iPad. The thing about my iPad is that there’s too much going on there. It’s not quite as busy and distraction-prone as my laptop, but when I’m staring into the growing screen of my tablet, my brain knows about all the options it has. I can check Twitter, refresh my Gmail inbox one more time, page through Flipboard, catch up on my ever-overflowing Instapaper queue or see what videos are bubbling up on YouTube, ShowYou or Frequency. And I don’t even play games or use chat apps on my iPad. Reading comprises the vast majority of what I do on my iPad. Probably 90% of all the words that my brain processes in a given month come from that glowing, 9.7-inch Retina display. I catch up on Google Reader and Flipboard, but I also delve into longer content on Instapaper, Longform and digital magazines. The thing I can never seem to make my way to is the Kindle app, where the books are waiting. The Underrated Value Of A Single-Use DeviceThat’s why I want a Kindle. After a day of dinging notifications, multitasking and hopping from app to app, my brain could really use the respite of a device that does only one thing. Why, you might ask, don’t I just pick up a paperback book and put the gadgets away?I certainly do that from time to time, but the inescapable reality is that more and more content exists in digital space. Like analog records, I’ll always have a physical bookshelf, but most of what I consume will be digital. There’s just more new stuff there, and it’s more easily accessible. Some big name authors are now going directly through Amazon, with or without a print edition. If I get a PDF copy of a new book or want to get a sample a chapter, I need to turn to a gadget to read those things. E-readers might be on the decline, but e-books aren’t going anywhere. Perhaps I could just turn off my iPad’s Wi-Fi, launch the Kindle app and, for crying out loud, exercise a little self-control. I do that from time to time, too. And it works. But sometimes I’d like to leave the backlit, multifunction gadgets at home and not even have the option to do other stuff. I’d also like to do read an e-book on the beach without squinting to see the text or risk dropping a $600 device in the sand. So the Kindle it is. I very much have room for both devices in my life, and I doubt I’m the only one.All things considered, it makes complete sense that dedicated e-readers are selling less – and that that decline will continue as tablet prices drop. But I don’t think we should write off e-readers off quite yet. At least, I hope not. I’ve got a hell of a reading queue to catch up on. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout
