Latest: Chelsea 4 Maribor 0 – Blues heading for resounding victory

first_imgDidier Drogba’s penalty – his first goal since returning to Chelsea – helped put them in a commanding position in the Champions League Group G clash. Drogba scored eight minutes after coming on for Loic Remy, who injured himself while scoring the opening goal to put the Blues in control, and John Terry’s breakaway strike and an own goal by Mitja Viler made it 4-0.Remy collected Terry’s pass and shifted the ball on to his left foot before firing into the far corner of the net to put the Blues ahead.However, the France striker, who appeared to pick up a groin strain early on, seemed to aggravate the problem as he struck the ball and after limping on for a couple of minutes he was replaced by Drogba on the quarter-hour mark.Drogba had last netted for Chelsea when he scored the Champions League-winning penalty in the shoot-out against Bayern Munich in 2012, having also got their all-important equaliser.And he made no mistake from the spot after Ales Mertelj handled as he attempted to block Willian’s ball into the box.Terry’s was a nicely worked goal, Eden Hazard cleverly finding Cesc Fabregas whose low cross teed up the skipper for a simple close-range finish.Chelsea continued to dominate after the interval and went further ahead courtesy of some good fortune on 54 minutes.Hazard retrieved Filipe Luis’ cross at the far post and when the Belgian steered the ball back towards the goalmouth it was diverted into the net by the unlucky Viler.Maribor were then awarded a penalty and a chance to pull a goal back when Agim Ibraimi was bundled over by Nemana Matic.But Ibraimi thumped his spot-kick against Petr Cech’s left-hand post. Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Remy (Drogba 15) Subs: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ake, Salah, Solanke.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Apple’s New Mac App Store: Our First Impressions

first_imgImplications of a Mac App StoreWill the Mac App Store be a boon to developers the way the iTunes App Store has been? Arguably, developers will get better exposure via the store. But as Apple is likely to continue to keep tight reins on what ends up in the store, some types of software – BitTorrent apps, for example, may find themselves closed out.Mac users, have you tried out the new App Store yet? What do you think about its content and delivery? Related Posts Apple has released an update to its OS this morning, and with it comes the new Mac App Store. The App Store is designed to bring to the Mac the same simplicity that iTunes offers for finding, buying and installing iPhone and iPad apps.Our first impressions: this is a fast and easy way to find and install apps on your Mac. Here’s what the App Store offers and how it works:Browsing for Apps What’s For Sale?Apple boasted over 1,000 apps available at launch; the store is full of the usual suspects. Well-known Apple titles are available: iMovie and GarageBand, for example, are available for $14.99, and Pages, Keynote, and Numbers are $19.99 each. Angry Birds is there ($4.99), of course, as is Evernote and Twitter (both free). Tags:#Apple#NYT#web Although it lives under a separate icon on your dock, the Mac App Store looks almost identical to the iTunes App Store. On the home page, you’ll find the “new and noteworthy” and featured apps. You can view the top paid and the top free apps, staff favorites and categories. You can access your account and you can search for apps. As in the iTunes App Store, each app has a description and user reviews. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Navigation isn’t great. There’s no “home” button, but as long as you can master the back and forward buttons, you should be fine.You can’t browse the Mac App Store on a device other than a Mac (on your iPhone or on the Web, for example).Buying AppsThe Mac App store requires an Apple ID in order to download and buy apps from the store. (And a side note here: if you’re getting an “Error 100” when you try to use the store for the first time, it means you haven’t signed the new Terms and Conditions that come with the release. I found relaunching the store prompted me to agree and sign.)No need to add payment information, as the App Store uses what’s already on file for your iTunes purchases. You can also use iTunes gift cardsBuying and installing apps is as easy as one click. The app then jumps to your dock. The App Store doesn’t seem to check to see if you already have the app installed – or at least, I didn’t receive any message to that effect when I downloaded Evernote, something already on my machine.You can view a list of the apps you’ve purchased and installed. Again, as with iTunes, you can check to see if any of your apps require updating, and if so you’ll be able to update all your apps at once – a nice feature for keeping your apps up-to-date without having to launch an app to see if you’ve got the latest version.

San Diego law enforcement warns against drunk driving on Fourth of July

first_img Posted: July 3, 2018 FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Local law enforcement agencies urged residents today to avoid drinking and driving over the Fourth of July holiday, when stepped- up patrols will be out in force searching for impaired motorists.The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said deputies will conduct increased patrols throughout the county on Wednesday, and advised residents that drivers can be arrested for being under the influence of marijuana or prescription drugs, not just alcohol.“There’s no excuse for impaired driving,” Sheriff Bill Gore said. “Have a safe Fourth of July and don’t drink and drive.” The sheriff’s department asked anyone who does drink on the national holiday to have a designated driver or use public transportation. Chula Vista police also planned to deploy additional officers on “DUI saturation patrols.”“Drinking and driving is dangerous, even if you’re ‘just buzzed’ or drug impaired,” according to the Chula Vista Police Department. “When you drive impaired, you risk the lives and safety of those riding with you and around you. You also risk a big hit on your wallet. A first time DUI arrest could cost you up to $10,000 — which includes attorney fees, fines, very high insurance rates, car towing, an alcohol/drug education treatment program and lost time at work, not to mention jail time, years on probation, the loss of your vehicle and driver’s license.“A final statistic to remember: drunk-driving deaths are 100-percent preventable.” San Diego law enforcement warns against drunk driving on Fourth of July holidaycenter_img Categories: Local San Diego News, Traffic & Accidents KUSI Newsroom July 3, 2018last_img read more
