The blue house is located on top of a small hill in western part of Roskilde near Copenhagen. By making the house tall and narrow the view over the fjord and towards the medieval city center can be enjoyed. The color of the façade makes the house blend in with the dark blue hues of the Scandinavian sky. On foggy and rainy days the house emanates its bright colorful optimism against the desaturated background by highlighting the blue tones of the grey mist.Save this picture!© Tia BorgsmidtSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Tia BorgsmidtThe main living space is spread over two floors. On the mid floor an open kitchen and dining room, grows out into the garden through a large terrace facing southwest. The upper level provides a living room with a large corner window overlooking the fjord and cathedral as well as a balcony for enjoying the sunsets. The two children rooms each got an individual character, just like their inhabitants. While one room is horizontal with a panorama window along the drawing desk, the other one is vertical with a loft bed that includes a small window at the highest point of the house.Save this picture!© Tia BorgsmidtThe upper level is a lightweight wooden construction built on top of an old brick house from the 1950’s. To add extra insulation to the existing lower part, a layer of corrugated steel works as climate shield on all facades and the roof.

Vermont again ranks near bottom of Forbes list of ‘Best States for Business’

first_img1 Index based on cost of labor, energy and taxes. 2 Measures educational attainment, net migration and projected population growth. 3 Measures regulatory and tort climate, incentives, government integrity, transportation and bond ratings. 4 Reflects job, income and gross state product growth as well as unemployment and presence of big companies. 5 Reflects projected job, income and gross state product growth as well as business openings/closings and venture capital investments. 6 Index of schools, health, crime, cost of living and poverty ratesSources: Moody’s; Pollina Corporate Real Estate; Pacific Research Institute; Tax Foundation; Sperling’s Best Places; Better Government Association; Census Bureau; SBA; FBI; Dept. of Education; Forbes. Source: Forbes.…(link is external) Forbes magazine released its annual report on the Best States for Business and Vermont, once again, was near the bottom. What little good news one could take from this is that the state actually rose two spots to 45th. Utah took over number one from longtime leader Virginia. Vermont was especially punished in the categories of business costs, regulation and growth prospects. The state’s best categories were labor force (16) and quality of life (15). The latter seems to be somewhat of a head scratcher, perhaps, as states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania finished well ahead of Vermont, even though the description says it measured schools, health, crime, cost of living and poverty rates and that several other national rankings put Vermont near or at the top of states with the highest quality of life.The business cost index was based on cost of labor, energy and taxes; the labor index measured educational attainment, net migration and projected population growth; the regulation index measured regulatory and tort climate, incentives, government integrity, transportation and bond ratings; the economic climate index measured job, income and gross state product growth as well as unemployment and presence of big companies; and the growth prospects category measured projected job, income and gross state product growth as well as business openings/closings and venture capital investments.While Vermont is struggling with population and business growth, and has the reputation of being highly regulated, all damning qualities in this ranking, the overall rankings show imbalance. For instance, California (39 in 2010, 38 in 2009) and Florida (26 and 18), with their dismal economies that have been a drag on the US economy as a whole, do not seem nearly low enough. Oregon (6 and 10) has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation at 10.6 percent. This is a full point higher than the US rate and 4.6 points higher than Vermont’s rate.While it would be easy to write-off the Forbes ranking as partisan ‘ as the magazine is steeped in Republican politics and its CEO has twice run for president ‘ the list is not a knee-jerk homage to the blue-state, red-state paradigm. The top state, Utah, is perhaps the most Republican state in the nation. But all the next five states in the ranking voted for Barack Obama in the last presidential election.What seems to be the most common themes in what Forbes calls “fostering growth” amongst the states, with Western and Southern states generally fairing better, are easier regulation and cheaper energy. The top New England states are Massachusetts (16 and 34) and New Hampshire (19 and 19), which are the only two in the top half.Utah looks like a clear winner by most measures. Utah’s economy has expanded 3.5 percent annually over the past five years, faster than any other state except North Dakota. This is three-and-a-half times faster than the US as a whole. Total employment in the US has shrunk over the past five years, but in Utah it increased 1.5 percent annually, fourth-best in the nation. Its unemployment rate is 7.4 percent. Household incomes have surged 5 percent annually, which is tops in the country and twice as fast as the national average. Rank 2010, Rank 2009, State, Costs, Labor, Regulation, Climate, Growth, Quality 13Utah8561201821Virginia2432414635North Carolina31531893244Colorado3311566952Washington282511429610Oregon1843414122178Texas262117213886Georgia31713073599Nebraska623281240141015Kansas231811133027117North Dakota43725333231211Idaho1719292019201314Iowa740191739131412Maryland4989192981517Minnesota30832371341634Massachusetts501013222811716South Dakota13237546251829Missouri153972636261919New Hampshire4064732522021Delaware1213314716362132New York432923922112223Tennessee103844423432336Arizona361238157372413Montana1911401042342528Alabama2142102910462618Florida371422363392722Wyoming22449848312831Nevada1327332417472930Indiana1043164832193033Pennsylvania343421164373143Kentucky845264015333226Arkansas1444242521443320Oklahoma164120750413425South Carolina262884326453527New Mexico223235312493635Connecticut451739233533724Illinois3930183438243837Ohio3247124637123938California4425432811224045New Jersey462041333354146West Virginia548463823404242Alaska2931422727424348Wisconsin3536363447104444Louisiana2550274118504547Vermont4216453945154639Hawaii4721442141284749Michigan3846144249304840Mississippi2049304931484950Rhode Island4134505023175041Maine472648454416last_img read more

Jose Mourinho pays heartfelt tribute to ‘last of his kind’ Arsene Wenger

first_imgJose Mourinho pays heartfelt tribute to ‘last of his kind’ Arsene Wenger Jose Mourinho had some kind words for Arsene Wenger (Picture: Getty Images)Jose Mourinho has buried the hatchet with old rival Arsene Wenger and has plenty of kind words for the former Arsenal manager now they are no longer competing against each other.Mourinho took on Wenger during his two spells as Chelsea boss and his stint as Manchester United manager, often succeeding against the Frenchman.Rio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starThere was even a physical altercation in 2014 when Wenger shoved Mourinho on the touchline as Chelsea went on to beat the Gunners 2-0.However, this all appears to be in the past for the Portuguese who thinks very highly of his old adversary.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisement Wenger and Mourinho had some heated moments on the touchline (Picture: Getty Images)‘The easiest way to remember Arsene Wenger is to say that he was the only kind,’ Mourinho told beIN Sports.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘In today’s football, it is impossible for a manager to coach for 10, 15, or 20 years at the same club. He is the last one who accomplished that.‘I really don’t think that we will ever see another manager remaining more than 10 years in a single club.More: FootballChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘In today’s world, players come and go, the pressure is immense for the manager. You make a great season but the next one is always a little worse.‘There is enormous pressure, there is a tendency to always change.‘Today’s norms dictate that the managers cannot stay at the same club for a long time.If we are talking about football, Wenger is the manager who coached the ‘Invincibles’. He won the Premier League with Arsenal without losing a single match and that remains through time.’Mourinho is expected to make a return to management this summer, saying: ‘I want to train a club, I want to find a place for this summer, in June for the preseason.‘I know exactly what I do not want, that’s why I’ve already rejected three or four offers.‘And I know what I want, not the name of the club, but the work style, workload.

Mourinho marvels at rampant Chelsea

first_img Press Association “We smashed them clearly and Petr started that momentum with that save.” Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham had all lost at Stamford Bridge prior to the Gunners’ visit, but the manner of the loss in Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge was embarrassing and humiliating. Wenger is still to beat Mourinho in 11 attempts. A third Chelsea goal came when referee Andre Marriner awarded a penalty for handball and sent off Kieran Gibbs, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the offender. The case of mistaken identity, for which Marriner has apologised, was irrelevant in terms of the result, though, as Chelsea claimed a second win in three attempts against Arsenal this season. Former Premier League referee Graham Poll suggested it was not a dismissal at all as Hazard’s shot was going wide. Mourinho, an advocate of television replays for fourth officials, disagreed. The Portuguese said: “Do you have a new rule? Who knows that is going out? “You know because you’ve seen it on television. But from my place I just saw the goalkeeper without a chance and somebody diving and saving, clearly. “If this is not a red card (then what is?)” The one blot on Chelsea’s performance was a hamstring injury for Eto’o, who scored his 11th goal of the season, all of which have come at home. The Cameroon striker withdrew fearing a more severe injury, but will likely miss next weekend’s trip to relegation-threatened Crystal Palace. “Hopefully it’s not so big,” said Mourinho, who praised the striker’s goal. “Hopefully it’s not a one-month injury, it’s 10 to 15 days.” Mourinho was happy with Eto’o’s replacement, Fernando Torres, and with Luiz’s display in midfield, a position the manager insisted earlier in the season the Brazil defender would not play. “Fernando, without scoring a goal, had a very good performance with great movement for the team,” Mourinho said. “I like David in midfield. I like him a lot there.” Jose Mourinho delighted in exposing Arsenal’s flaws after his biggest victory as Chelsea manager. Nemanja Matic and David Luiz acted as ball-winning midfielders and the attacking quartet of Samuel Eto’o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard and Oscar did the early damage as Chelsea, like Manchester City and Liverpool before them, tore the Gunners apart. “We spoke about Arsenal being the kind of team that when they have possession of the ball and when they start building from the back they are very comfortable,” Mourinho told Chelsea TV. “They have a big culture of ball possession and we were trying to press them there, to recover the ball and to attack spaces. “We know also that the full-backs, normally they are wide and up, leaving the two central defenders isolated. “They are not the fastest guys on the pitch and we knew that by recovering the ball and attacking spaces we could score. “The start was really, really strong. The message with the 2-0 was clear and after, penalty, red card and even worse for them.” Eto’o began the rout and Schurrle added a second after seven minutes, but the goals came after Petr Cech made a fine save from Olivier Giroud. “The first 10 minutes of the match were magnificent,” Mourinho said. A 6-0 win took Premier League leaders Chelsea seven points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal, while Liverpool, who have one game in-hand, are four points adrift in second. Third-placed Manchester City, Mourinho’s title favourites, are six points behind but have three games in-hand, beginning with Tuesday’s Manchester derby. last_img read more

Beach soccer dazzles at Hogbetsotso festival

first_imgThe biggest crowd witnessed for a beach soccer game in Ghana was recorded over the weekend when 6 beach soccer clubs converged at the Aborigines Beach Resort in Keta for the second edition of the Hogbetsotso Beach Soccer Classic.As happened with the maiden edition in 2014, beach soccer clubs converged at the venue to display their craft and skills to festive makers, locals, tourists and dignitaries alike.The event was broadcast live on one of the top radio stations in the Volta region Jubilee 106.9 fm.The standard of this year’s event was higher than last year’s edition. The protocol officer of the Ghana Beach Soccer Association Kusi Awere Gyamfi said this will be the template for spreading beach soccer throughout Ghana.Sea Lions Bsc and Teshie United Bsc from Accra joined hosts Keta Sunset Sports, Havedzi Mighty Warriors, Tegbi Youth and Ada Assurance in this year’s invitational tournament. The build up to the event was made even more exciting due to the fact that the best teams in the league were all in top shape ahead of the festival tournament.After some spectacular and exciting games, host team Keta Sunset Sports defeated their arch rivals Havedzi Mighty Warriors 4-1 in the final. The 4-1 scoreline did not reflect the tight and competitive nature of the final but rather the individual brilliance of Sunset captain Michael Sema who scored his sides four goals. The event was supported by the Member of Parliament for the Keta Constituency Hon. Richard Quashigah and his colleagues Hon. Fiifi Kwetey and Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa. The venue for the finals, Aborigines Beach Resort was made available by the C.E.O Mitch G. Woollams.In a post final interview, the president of GBSA Yaw Ampofo Ankrah assured the media and sports fans who witnessed the event that there will be more beach soccer tournament in Keta in 2016.”This initiative is part of Beach Soccer Ghana’s wider goal of expanding the game to all coastal communities in Ghana”.Special commendation was reserved for the C.E.O of Keta Sunset Sports Ruben Dzidodo and his officials. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Pickett, Panthers eager to get season started vs Albany

first_imgWhile coach Pat Narduzzi understands the hype surrounding the sophomore quarterback — last seen engineering an upset of then second-ranked Miami in the 2017 regular season finale — Narduzzi also knows a reality check will come at some point. Perhaps as early as Saturday when the Panthers open against Albany.“I know everybody thinks he’s going to go out there and be ’Kenny Perfect,’” Narduzzi said. “That’d be in a perfect world. But nobody’s perfect. I don’t want to make Kenny tight like that where he’s got to play perfect. He’s still a baby.”Even if Pickett didn’t play like one while accounting for all three Pitt touchdowns in the victory over the Hurricanes. Nine months later he steps onto Heinz Field again eager to prove it was no fluke. The atmosphere will be different. So will the stakes. That’s fine by Pickett. A year ago he was running the scout team. Now he’s firmly entrenched as the starter.Will he be pumped? Yes. Will he show it? Meh.Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett (8) passes under pressure by defensive lineman James Folston Jr. (40) during their annual NCAA intrasquad college football spring Blue Gold game, Saturday, April 14, 2018, in Pittsburgh. The Blue team won 10-3. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)“I can’t be going nuts on the field, then I lose my mind and lose my read, what I have to do,” Pickett said. “Just stay calm, stay smooth from the first quarter to the last one.”The Panthers could use a steady hand at the wheel following a tumultuous 2017 in which they finished 5-7 and failed to reach a bowl game for the first time in a decade. A seemingly unending rotation at quarterback — from Max Browne to Ben DiNucci back to Browne back to DiNucci then ultimately to Pickett — didn’t help.Pickett’s rise could give Pitt long-term stability , though he is quick to point out he’s just one part of an offense he believes will be “explosive” under second-year coordinator Shawn Watson.“It’s our offense now this year,” Pickett said. “Last year we were 50/50. We didn’t know our identity really.”Now the Panthers believe they do. Senior running backs Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison are eager to bounce back after an underachieving 2017 . Fullback George Aston returns after missing most of last season due to injury. The receivers are largely inexperienced but Pickett is hardly concerned.“I feel really comfortable back there,” Pickett said. “I have trust in seven to eight guys to go in there and do exactly what the guy before them did. That’s something we didn’t have last year and we do this year. … It’s been countless hours of work and preparation and we’re ready to go.”Some things to look for as Pitt attempts not to get tripped up by the Great Danes.NO QB JITTERS: Albany QB Vince Testaverde Jr., a fifth-year graduate transfer at his third school, will start his first game for the Great Danes. The son of longtime NFL quarterback and 1986 Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde is a transfer from Miami, where his dad starred. He started his college career at Texas Tech and played in one game as a non-scholarship freshman in 2014, completing 15 of 26 passes for 116 yards against Texas, then transferred after one semester.Although his dad will be at the game, Vince says it will be business as usual.“I’m just going to play my game, tell everyone else just to play theirs,” said Testaverde, who will be playing in only his second game in college. “Nothing’s different. Football is football, no matter if we play in a small stadium, big stadium, wherever we play.”ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT: Narduzzi raised some eyebrows when he told a crowd of fans at a kickoff luncheon that he would see them in Charlotte — site of the ACC title game —at the end of the season. It’s a limb Narduzzi is willing to step out on thanks to the mentality of his 19 seniors.“I think we’ve got the talent, I think we have the mindset, I think we’ve got the chemistry to win a championship,” Narduzzi said. “Is that going to happen? We’ll find out.”OLD HOME WEEKEND: Albany head coach Greg Gattuso is a Pittsburgh native. He won eight MAAC championships in 12 seasons at Duquesne (1993-2004) and also worked on the Panthers’ staff for six seasons (2005- 11). This will be Albany’s second game ever against an FBS opponent.“They had an opening (on the schedule). It worked out. It was a much better idea four years ago than it is right now,” Gattuso said, joking. “But I’m excited about it, and I think the kids are really excited about it.“Ultimately, it’s a great experience for our athletes to play … against the team that just beat the No. 2 team in the country in their last game.”Albany offensive line coach Jim Sweeney is from Pittsburgh and a Pitt grad.___AP Sports Writer John Kekis in Syracuse, New York, contributed to this report.___More AP college football: and PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kenny Pickett’s first college start set almost impossible expectations for his second. Everywhere except inside the Pittsburgh locker room. In this Aug. 9, 2018, file photo, Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett (8) passes in a drill during an NCAA college football practice in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi says sophomore quarterback Kenny Pickett doesn’t have to think he’s “Kenny Perfect.” Either way, Pickett will be the focal point for Pitt when the Panthers open the 2018 season on Saturday against Albany.
