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. I went there a couple of months ago with Arsenal and things were fine. There were no troubles or worries whatsoever … I can’t wait to get back there.” Topics Read more Share on LinkedIn Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share via Email Share on WhatsApp Share on Messenger Marcus Rashford Share on Pinterest World Cup 2018 Danny Welbeck Ashley Young

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.
