Chelsea players at Euro 2016 assessed after the first round of fixtures

first_img 6 Gary Cahill (England) – 7 out of 10 – Click the right arrow above to find out how we have rated Chelsea’s players at Euro 2016… – The centre-back was solid, if uninspiring, at the back for England. Cahill was rarely put under pressure, although he was booked after giving away a cheap free-kick at the half-way line. He did well when dealing with the sizeable and unpredictable Artem Dzyuba. Cesc Fabregas (Spain) – 7 out of 10 – Alongside Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta, Fabregas helped ensure La Roja dominated the ball against Czech Republic in Group C. He was a little looser with the ball than the Barcelona duo but contributed well and got in the odd tackle and interception as their opponents tried to break forward. Thibaut Courtois (Belgium) – 7 out of 10 – Blues goalkeeper Courtois saw the ball hit the back of his net twice against Belgium but couldn’t be blamed too much for either goal, with his defence letting him down. He also pulled out two good stops, one from goal scorer Graziano Pelle and one from Ciro Immobile. Chelsea aren’t one of the most represented Premier League sides at Euro 2016 with just six players involved with three different nations.Their experiences so far have varied quite wildly with some offering up good performances, while others may be a little more disappointed.With incoming Blues boss Antonio Conte at the tournament in France, the players will need to show their best side as he will undoubtedly be watching.So, how have the Chelsea superstars done across the Channel in the first round of fixtures?Click the right arrow above to see our ratings… 6 Eden Hazard (Belgium) – 6 out of 10 – Busy, is perhaps the best way to phrase the Blues star’s performance against Italy. His dribbling was good but let down by some poor decision making and passing. He was restricted to just two shots and unable to really test Gianluigi Buffon. 6 6 Pedro (Spain) – 5 out of 10 – After a tough first season at Stamford Bridge, the winger found himself starting on the bench against Czech Republic. He was a used substitute, though, coming on for Nolito and managing eight minutes of action. 6 6 Cesar Azpilicueta (Spain) – Did not play – With Jordi Alba ahead of him in the Spanish pecking order, it’s unlikely Azpilicueta will get too many minutes in France.last_img read more

Watching, waiting

first_imgYou might mot see them, but Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputies Leo Castro and Tomas Rodriguez are watching you. On Thursday, the partners trailed an MTA bus through Montebello, Rosemead, Temple City and El Monte, their eyes peeled for vandals. From inside their patrol car, Rodriguez watched a monitor receiving a signal transmitted from a camera inside the bus. The hidden camera broadcasts a live image from the back of the bus. The image is transmitted to the monitor by a signal, like a cell phone. Rodriguez and Castro are part of the Special Problems Unit for the Metro Transit Services Bureau their unit specializing in graffiti abatement. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week So far this year, Castro said, the team has caught more than 1,000 vandals who have caused more than $1 million in property damage to buse s in the county’s transportation system. Graffiti taggers like to put their spray-painted monikers on surfaces where they know they will be seen. “What better way to get your name out there than tagging it on a bus,’ Castro said. Climbing aboard a bus Thursday afternoon, the partners spotted familiar etchings cut into its plastic-paneled windows and air-duct panels. “We’ve been looking for this guy for a while,’ Castro said of one of the tags. Then, gesturing to another name, he added, “But we just got this guy with a search warrant. He’s in jail now.’ The deputies began using hidden cameras on buses last year, monitoring the live feeds from inside their patrol car. “It helps us catch them in real time,’ Castro said, “especially if there’s a specific area that’s popular to taggers. It also has a 100-percent prosecution rate because of the video record.’ Working 12- and 16-hour shifts investigating cases, the deputies have grown familiar with some of the San Gabriel Valley’s most prolific taggers. Driving near a high school, Castro noticed a tagged traffic sign. “We’ve been looking for that guy forever. I bet he goes to this school,’ he said. To investigate a hunch such as this, he’ll go to the school and talk to administrators, who may recognize the tag and identify the culprit. The partners also compare notes with local police departments. While the Valley’s bustling and increasingly integrated bus system is a boon for commuters, it also provides plenty of opportunities for graffiti writers, the deputies said. “Part of what makes this job difficult is that a tagger can ride the bus all over the Valley,’ Castro said. “They take the MTA, Foothill Transit. Now they can go anywhere with one pass.’ They typically use distraction to leave their marks, he added. While some members of a tagging crew block the bus driver’s vision, others scratch the crew’s name into windows or any other available surface. But the hidden cameras are proving to be a valuable weapon. One recorded video from a recent bust shows a tagger unknowingly looking directly into the camera as he scrawls on an upper panel of a bus. The cameras are so tiny and well hidden they are nearly impossible to notice. After capturing such an image, a deputy climbs aboard the bus and handcuffs the vandals. Property damage of more than $400 is a felony. Although Catro and Rodriguez work hard to combat the problem, both say that no amount of manpower will ever succeed in completely stopping graffiti on public buses. “I don’t think we’ll ever get rid of graffiti completely,’ Rodriguez said. “We just chip away at the rock,’ Castro added. Still, Rodriguez said, the work is important because it stops criminals early on in their careers. “We’re trying to slow everything down before they get into gangs,’ Rodriguez said. “I’ve worked gangs, narcotics. When you work the heart of it, you want to find where it starts. This is where it starts graffiti. We try to stop them before they get older and into gangs and drugs.’ @tagline columnist: :Sandy Mazza can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026, or by e-mail at 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

What’s the Best Method to Use When Paying Down Debt?

first_imgBy Carol Church If you or someone you know is carrying credit card debt, they’re far from alone. The Federal Reserve estimates at least half of U. S. cardholders don’t pay their bills in full monthly. Service members are far from immune to this issue. In fact, some research suggests that military members are more likely to have credit card debt (and more of it) than civilians.For some, this issue may be relatively minor—a few hundred dollars that will get paid off within a month or two. For many others, however, the situation is much more serious. Just as millions are in debt, millions also suffer from bad credit ratings, affecting so many things about their lives and costing them even more money. For service members, debt can be a distraction while deployed and may even result in revocation of security clearance.Of course, credit cards aren’t the only kind of debt that can cause problems. Car payments (especially those with high interest rates), medical bills, and student loans all also have the potential to become a problem. Many people have more than one type of overdue or problem debt.Those in this situation may feel like they have no idea where to start with getting the situation under control. However, the first step is to begin thinking about a clear plan of action. There are many possible ways to begin digging out of debt; we’ll discuss some common strategies below.The Snowball MethodOne approach to beginning to eliminate debt is the so-called “snowball” method. With this technique, you “get the ball rolling” on eliminating debt by (of course) making sure to pay the minimum on all debts monthly, but otherwise concentrating all “extra” payment on ONE debt first: your smallest debt. You do this regardless of interest rate. Return to article. Long DescriptionStockSnap/, CC0The idea is to get this first debt erased quickly in order to enjoy the immense emotional and psychological satisfaction we feel when “zeroing out” a deb. Once the smallest debt is wiped out, you move on to the next smallest debt, and so on and so forth.This approach to debt is appealing to many due to basic human nature. Getting rid of a debt can feel like a big accomplishment and can provide debtors with motivation to keep going—and as with many things, the key here is to keep going! However, from a dollars-and-sense financial point of view, the snowball method is, at its root, unsound. You will pay more in interest this way!The Ladder MethodWith the “ladder” method, you again make sure to always put at least the minimum payment towards each debt, but concentrate on the debt with the highest interest rate first, regardless of its relative size. Even if it takes years to pay this one off, that is where you pay extra, because that is the debt that is losing you the most money.Some simple math demonstrates the common sense of this approach, if you think about it. It might feel good to pay off that annoying $1000 student loan with a 5% interest rate, but consider how little that loan “costs” you over the year compared to a $10,000 credit card debt with an 18% interest rate!The “Kickstart” MethodWith this method, you start off paying a small debt in full for the motivation value and then proceed to your highest-interest debt next for the financial “dollars and sense” value. If you’re losing motivation paying on a large, high-interest loan, you can temporarily “downshift” to paying off a small loan again for the emotional payoff, but then go back to the high-interest account.The “Rising Tide Lifts All Boats” MethodIn this method, debtors pay the minimum first, then divide whatever extra amount they have left for debt elimination pretty equally among all their debts. Typically not a particularly intentional strategy, this approach is nonetheless pretty common, and may make debtors feel like they are at least “making progress” on all their obligations.Which One to Choose?Many experts advise choosing a method based on knowledge of your own personality. Can you work well within the logic of the ladder? Will you need the emotional satisfaction of the snowball? Is the kickstart method a good compromise? Although those of us who work in finance may feel that the ladder (or at least the hybrid) is always better, be aware that real-life research on the matter suggests that the less mathematically valid snowball method may often work better for people in real life. In an experiment where people “worked” by playing games to “pay off” pretend debt and get real money, those who concentrated their efforts on the account with the smallest balances worked the hardest to “get it done.”And it does appear that concentrating on one loan at a time, rather than spreading out payments, is often best. Researchers looking at credit card data from nearly 6000 customers found that those who concentrated on paying off one account at a time were more successful than those who distributed their payments equally over multiple accounts. This effect was stronger when the debtors paid off smaller loans first.Whatever the plan, debtors should make it clear and easy to follow They will benefit from thinking carefully about the best approach, making a plan, and sticking to it.  Paying off debt is not easy, but it can be done.References:Boyer, R.
