Marcus Rashford will be examined by England’s medical staff on Wednesday to assess whether there are any doubts about his involvement in the team’s opening game of the World Cup finals, against Tunisia.Rashford hurt a knee during a training game at St George’s Park on Tuesday and the Manchester United striker was still complaining about soreness when the squad arrived in Repino, outside St Petersburg, for their first look at the training base for the tournament.Gareth Southgate’s players are due to have their first training session at Zelenogorsk, a village six miles away, on Thursday but Rashford’s involvement is uncertain, with the priority being to make sure there is no serious risk of him missing England’s opening game of Group G in Volgograd on Monday. “Marcus took a slight knock, but nothing too serious,” the manager said. “We’ll look at that ahead of tomorrow’s session.” England Danny Rose news World Cup England World Cup 2018 team guide: tactics, key players and expert predictions Reuse this content England have an injury-free squad otherwise and before the flight to St Petersburg two of their 11 black or mixed‑race players – the highest number the nation has taken to a major tournament – tried to play down fears that the competition might be tarnished by racism.Danny Rose had revealed last week that he had asked his family to stay at home because he felt the risk was too significant, but the Tottenham defender appears to be the only member of the squad who has taken that course of action.“I’ve got no concerns at all,” said Ashley Young, Rose’s competitor for the left wing-back position. “I’ve got a family that is going. The FA have spoken to us security-wise and I’ve every confidence in them.”Danny Welbeck delivered a similar message, noting that he had been to Russia without any problems when Arsenal played CSKA Moscow in the Europa League towards the end of last season.Welbeck said: “I am looking forward to it.

May 10, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, AP Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News, Trending FacebookTwitter Posted: May 10, 2018 San Diego selected by Trump administration for drone testing program BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — San Diego was named as one of a select few cities named by the Trump Administration to participate in a national drone testing program.U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao on Wednesday announced 10 sites for a test program aimed at increasing the use of unmanned aircraft for projects that range from monitoring crops and oil pipelines in North Dakota to applying mosquito-killing treatments in Florida and package deliveries in Tennessee.President Donald Trump signed a directive last year to establish the “innovation zones” that allow exemptions to some drone regulations, such as flying over people, nighttime flights and flights where the aircraft can’t be seen by the operator. States, communities and tribes selected to participate would devise their own trial programs in partnership with government and industry drone users.“Data gathered from these pilot projects will form the basis of a new regulatory framework to safely integrate drones into our national airspace,” Chao said in a statement.Chao, who called the rapidly developing drone industry the biggest development since the jet age, said about 150 applications were received. Selected were the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; the cities of San Diego, California, and Reno, Nevada; state transportation departments in North Dakota, North Carolina and Kansas; University of Alaska-Fairbanks; the Center for Innovative Technology in Virginia; Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority in Memphis, Tennessee; and the Lee County Mosquito Control District in Fort Meyers, Florida.A statement by San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer is expected Thursday on details of San Diego’s involvement in the program.The Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota has an unmanned aircraft mission. North Dakota Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford said the program will spur more commercial investment and “allow us to explore new uses for unmanned aircraft.” He envisioned drones helping with oil field, flood and weather monitoring, and “finding missing persons.”The unmanned aircraft industry has pushed for relaxed restrictions, and the Trump administration has said current regulations have limited drone use, forcing companies to test overseas.Steven Bradbury, a lawyer for the federal Transportation Department, said drones have caused some “apprehension” with the public but one of the initiative’s biggest goals will be increased “community awareness and acceptance” of unmanned aircraft.Bradbury said there is no direct federal funding for the test program.

2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value More From Roadshow Car Industry Enlarge ImageThe legal system isn’t always the fastest, so there may be some time before an update on this matter. Getty Images In 2016, the Obama administration announced an inflation-based adjustment to penalties related to corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) violations, dramatically increasing the amount automakers must pay for vehicles that gulp fuel in excess of federal standards. The Trump administration reversed that move and froze the penalties, which automakers certainly liked, but it appears a number of states did not.A coalition of 12 states and the District of Columbia, led by the Attorneys General of California and New York, filed a lawsuit in the Second Circuit of Appeals challenging the rule freezing the CAFE penalties. The Obama administration’s rule would have hiked penalties to $14 for every 0.1 miles per gallon a vehicle consumes in excess of federal CAFE standards. NHTSA’s new rule would keep the penalty at the pre-inflation figure of $5.50 per 0.1 mpg. The lawsuit contends that NHTSA’s new rule is unlawful for several reasons. In a press release from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, NHTSA’s decision violates the 2015 Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act, and the statement also claims NHTSA incorrectly interpreted its “statutory obligations” and is “based on inaccurate assumptions of the economic impact of the inflation-adjusted penalties.” Automaker lobbying groups claimed earlier that the higher penalties could bump regulatory costs by $1 billion.NHTSA did not immediately return a request for comment, but a spokesperson told Reuters that “it was following the intent of Congress to ensure the penalty rate was set at the level required by law.”Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation, under which NHTSA operates, is still working to finalize its adjustments to Obama-era CAFE regulations, which were set to increase to 46.7 mpg by 2025. The DOT is proposing a freeze at 37 mpg instead. It’s worth noting that CAFE calculations are not the same as the EPA figures you see on window stickers — EPA figures are lower. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 28 Photos Tags 2 Comments The best hybrid cars and SUVs available in America Share your voice

They have to collect vegetable and fruit compost, the waste, and they will put it in the fuel tank, and then the car separates the seeds from the compost and dries them, and throws them on the ground, Sami said. And then, the water, the car preserves rain water so it can water the plants, and the new plants can grow.Canadian Hye In Park, 15, received the President Akio Toyoda Award, selected by Toyotas president, for her Dream Society car, designed to unite families living far away.My dream is that I can live with all my family members together, because I am an immigrant from Korea.

And I want to, I want to one day live with all of them together in one society, Park said.Toyota officials say they are hoping to fuel the progress of the future with the contest.

Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia. Prothom Alo File PhotoThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has accused the prison authorities of neglecting the health of incarcerated party chairperson Khaleda Zia, saying her condition has deteriorated further, reports UNB.“The jail authorities are not paying the due attention to Khaleda Zia’s health condition,” BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told the media at the party’s Naya Paltan office in the capital city on Wednesday.“Relatives, who visited the former prime minister Tuesday, said her condition has worsened,” Fakhrul said, claiming that there was a plot to kill Khaleda in jail by denying her medical care.Khaleda, a three-time prime minister, is in jail since 8 February last year as she was convicted in a corruption case.Her five-year sentence was later doubled. The BNP chairperson was also convicted in a separate corruption case later that year.The BNP claims the cases are politically motivated and that the government is trying to keep her away from politics – charges the government denies.The party contested the 11th parliamentary elections, held on 30 December, without Khaleda Zia.Ruling Bangladesh Awami League won 96 per cent seats in the 300-member assembly.Unconditional release of Khaleda has been her party’s main demand ever since she has been incarcerated.Fakhrul said the BNP chief is so ill that she cannot move independently. “She’s also complaining of pain in different parts of her body,” he said.The BNP leader alleged that the medical board formed at the High Court’s order is not ensuring her treatment.He also expressed concerns as the government has not taken any step to shift Khelada Zia to any specialised hospital for treatment even after the BNP’s 4 March meeting with the home minister.Fakhrul demanded the BNP chief be treated at a specialised hospital.“If anything happens to her, the government, the jail authorities and the home ministry will have to take the responsibility,” he said.

Nothing left but gratitude for the chef.I’m trying to feed you with whatever I got.Like my ancestors before me, you can find me by the fire.I’m cooking poems on stoves, I simmer the similes like onions with sugar,I want this story to caramelize naturally.I tell stories in your stomachI tell stories which are really just recipesfor how to create joy when I feel empty insideAs you listen to me explain how to properly cookbone-in chicken in a cast-iron skillet,know the truth is my favorite flavor.If I misspeak, it only means I changed the recipe mid-sentence.Can I tell you a secret?I need love like olive oil.The first thing my mother and grandmother dowhen I am home is ask if I am hungry.Of course, I say yes.Of course, my eyes are bigger than my stomach.So I open my stomach like a sentence I wish to re-write.I don’t always know what I wish to change, my appetite or the recipe.When I can’t stand the cold emptiness of indecision,I stand up in the heat of the kitchen.I open the fridge like a dictionary.Language, my ultimate box of mystery ingredients.Every plate is a page I am not afraid to shareI don’t always have a lot, but I got enough to make it through breakfast.I’m hungry, but sometimes, I leave my voice in the oven.I buy fresh fruit because I want to learn how to be useful before I too begin to rot. I use my knife to carve meaning clean from the bone.I plate the truth with purpose.If you’re still hungry, there are plenty of seconds. 00:00 /07:15 Share
