The news will come as a relief to Poyet, who admitted the Potters’ efforts to prise the former Middlesbrough and Wigan midfielder from his grasp had taken him by surprise. The Uruguayan said: “We had an offer yesterday which was very simple to say no. “There were rumours during the week, but somebody needed to make an offer. They made an offer and it was not good, see you later. “Nothing happened during the day, so I thought, ‘They are not coming back’ and if they came back, it had to be really big. And they came back.” The Cattermole saga unfolded as Liam Bridcutt completed his £2.5million move from Brighton to the Stadium of Light, and Poyet will now expect the pair to compete for the holding role in his midfield. He said: “I was looking forward to having him and Liam Bridcutt sharing that position and fighting for a place. We need leaders on the pitch in that central position.” Cattermole was unlikely to be available for Saturday’s derby trip to Newcastle anyway because of a calf injury, and that could mean a debut for the newcomer at St James’ Park. Manager Gus Poyet revealed on Friday afternoon that the Potters had given the Black Cats something to think about by increasing their initial offer for the 25-year-old midfielder. However, Press Association Sport understands the deal has now fallen through, despite claims a fee had been agreed between the two clubs. Lee Cattermole is expected to remain a Sunderland player after a proposed deadline day move to Stoke fell through. Press Association

A new study comparing public policies relating to 10 high-profile political issues with general public opinion was released last month by the vice dean of the USC Marshall School of Business.John Matsusaka examined the congruence between the views of the public regarding highly controversial matters such as same-sex marriage, abortion and capital punishment, and the policy choices that are currently being enforced by state governments.The study found that only 59 percent of the policy choices were representative of the general public’s majority views.“If policies were selected by flipping a coin, you would get 50 percent congruence. So my finding is that congruence was only 9 percent better than random policy making,” Matsusaka wrote in an e-mail. “I found this surprising and certainly much lower than I expected.”Nicole Cruz, a junior majoring in psychology, said this particular study emphasizes the belief many hold that their vote ultimately will not make a difference when it comes to specific policy issues.“As a young voter, these statistics worry me. It upsets me that my vote doesn’t seem to matter, especially with such important and pressing issues during this day and age,” Cruz said.Matsusaka also found, however, that states which allow citizens to propose and approve laws directly through initiatives are much more congruent with public opinion, such as in California.“It is clear that ballot propositions help the majority rule. This evidence contradicts those who argue that the initiative process is actually controlled by special interests,” Matsusaka wrote.Matsusaka collected data for about three years for the study, which was published in the most recent issue of Quarterly Journal of Political Science.He said that he has been thinking about the underlying issues of the study for at least 10 years.“I was and am interested in this because, like many people, I have the feeling that our elected representatives often do not represent ‘the people,’ but rather cater to special interests,” Matsusaka said. “I wanted to gather some evidence that would indicate if this feeling was true. And more important, if it was true, I wanted to understand what sort of political reforms might make things better.”Dayna Walker, a senior majoring in economics, said she was not surprised by the results of Matsusaka’s study.“Since we have a representative democracy rather than a direct democracy, I’m not that shocked by these results. Of course I would like to see more alignment between public policy and public opinion, but in time I am hopeful that they will become more congruent,” Walker said.Although Matsusaka said he is unsure of what kind of impact this study might have on the future of politics, he remains optimistic that it will help policymakers in the future.“I hope that this [study], together with other studies, will paint a better picture of modern American democracy so we can think intelligently about how to modernize it and make it work better for us,” Matsusaka said.

Sam Swart lined up on the right side of the goal for a free position shot, staring down Coastal Carolina goaltender Harley Barrett. When the whistle blew, Swart exploded off the line before releasing a shot from her right shoulder.The shot was low, bouncing on the ground by Barrett’s feet. Before the goalie knew it, the ball was in the back of the net, and Swart had her second goal of the game. As she dropped her stick, she stumbled — the only time SU’s offense would do so the entire night.In the first 24 minutes of the game, the No. 7 Orange (3-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) scored as many goals as they did in their last game on Saturday against No. 1 Boston College. By the end of the contest, Syracuse had matched its season high and defeated Coastal Carolina (1-1), 18-5, its largest winning margin of the season. It marked SU’s fourth-straight game to begin the season with at least 12 goals, a feat that it achieved just twice all of last year. Paced by Meaghan Tyrrell’s four points, the Orange offense opened the game with a dominating first-half run, a trend that has appeared in every game this season.“Little sluggish the first minute or two, but then we turned it around and got on a roll,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “… Our shooting came around. Overall very happy with the performance of the entire team, again.”Syracuse opened its season on Feb. 8 by outscoring Connecticut 12-1 in the first half. In its second game, against Binghamton, SU scored the first nine goals of the game. Even Saturday against Boston College, the No. 1 team in the country, the Orange offense exploded out of the gate.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSeven goals in the first 22 minutes of the game pushed Syracuse ahead by five and in position for the biggest upset in program history. The Eagles ultimately stopped the run and handed the Orange their first loss, but not before SU’s offense held its own against last season’s national runners-up. Two days after the loss, Syracuse made sure it didn’t suffer the same fate against the Chanticleers.“This was a real quick turn around,” Gait said. “One day to prepare after a tough BC game. It’s kind of what we got stuck with, came out and I thought we played pretty well.”Susie Teuscher | Digital Design EditorWhile Coastal Carolina struck first by scoring just under five minutes into the game, Syracuse didn’t take long to respond. Less than a minute later Tyrrell scored the first of her three goals, kicking off an Orange scoring streak.Megan Carney was next, pouring in a pair of goals that gave Syracuse a lead that it would never relinquish. When Vanessa Costantino scored at the 15:14 mark, just over 10 minutes after Coastal Carolina scored the game’s first goal, the Orange’s lead was 6-1. It prompted a Chanticleers timeout, allowing head coach Kristen Selvage to berate her players in the minute-long huddle.While Tyrrell’s three goals pushed her to eight on the season, second-best on the team, Carney’s pair of scores has her tied for third, with seven. The two freshman attackers have been instrumental to Syracuse’s offense this season and through four games appear to be more than capable of making up for the loss of Riley Donahue, the 26-goal scorer that the Orange lost from last season.“I think me and Meg (Carney) work really well together,” Tyrrell said. “We can definitely do some more work around the crease together.”Selvage’s angry monologue did little to help Coastal Carolina’s cause. With just under five minutes left in the half, the Chanticleers had managed to score their second goal. Syracuse, on the other hand, had poured in six more. Its 13th and final score of the half came with 4:32 left until the break, when Morgan Alexander dropped in her third goal of the game.After scoring, Alexander was hit in the head and fell to the ground. While Selvage stomped her feet on the sideline, Alexander picked herself up and hugged her teammates.After missing her first three seasons at SU due to three separate knee injuries, Alexander is finally on the field for the Orange and has produced immediately. Three goals in her debut against Connecticut have grown to seven goals and two assists through four games as the attacker has carved her way into the rotation.“It’s a huge bonus,” Emily Hawryschuk said. “I think it’s awesome to see someone like Morgan come from years of injuries and make an impact on our team, so it’s really exciting.”It took until the second half for Hawryschuk, Syracuse’s leading scorer, to tally her first goal of the game. By that time, however, it was unnecessary insurance in a contest that, for the third time this season, was controlled by Syracuse’s offense.She’d be joined on the scoresheet by Sarah Cooper, a freshman defender who scored for the first time in her Syracuse career, and Julie Cross, a midfielder who had yet to score this season. Games versus Coastal Carolina, Connecticut and Binghamton allowed the Orange to display their firepower, but against Boston College, SU’s attack failed to last the entire game.With its next five games coming against ranked opponents, Syracuse will have the chance to show if its offensive potential is legitimate.“We’re at a point when we’re gonna hit a tough stage in the schedule, and if we can continue, then what we worked on, we’ll look at as a success,” Gait said. “I think we could’ve scored a lot more goals if we needed to today, but instead, we got the opportunity to play everybody, so we just gotta make sure that we can get that potential to get those numbers up there when we’re playing a top-5 team, top-6 team.” Published on February 18, 2019 at 6:52 pm Contact Eric: email@example.com | @esblack34 Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Commenting on his new role, he stated: “I would like to thank the previous Chair, Heike Mayer, for her valuable contribution to ESSA and its members over the last couple of years. “The association took on a new focus and direction during Heike’s tenure and I will be seeking to work with my board colleagues and the wider membership to build upon on the success of that approach and the positive impact that it has had.“The year ahead is expected to pose new challenges and opportunities for the sector and ESSA is setting out a clear plan of action to ensure that its members are best placed to meet those. Indeed, being part of a collective global monitoring network has never been of greater importance from both a business and integrity perspective, and I call upon all responsible operators to join us in ESSA.”The appointment comes as ESSA revealed in its latest update that tennis and football continue to be the most prominent sports in terms of suspicious betting alerts.In total, following a reported 83 cases of suspicious betting during the fourth quarter of 2018, the annual total of reported cases was 267, of which 178 originated from the sport of tennis, whilst 52 were from football.Geographically, Europe maintained its position as the primary location of sporting events on which alerts have been generated, totalling 148 (55%) in 2018, with Asia continuing to fill second spot with 48 alerts (18%).Khalid Ali, ESSA Secretary General, said: “ESSA’s alerts remain an important barometer for gauging betting related corruption globally. Outside of tennis and football, we are beginning to see new threats emerging such as the increased number of alerts on esports.“Given the multi-jurisdictional nature of match-fixing, regulators around the world are now beginning to make it a requirement for operators to be part of an international monitoring system, which we fully support.” Share
