QPR v Preston: five key battles

admin no comments

first_imgQPR hope to return to winning ways on Saturday when they host pointless Preston at Loftus Road. Here’s the five match-ups we believe might be crucial in determining the outcome.Jake Bidwell v Ben PringleBidwell was not at his best in the defeat at Barnsley in midweek, struggling up against Ryan Kent. However, he will hope to fare better in his battle with former Fulham man Pringle, who has started all three of Preston’s Championship matches.Yeni N’Gbakoto v Liam GrimshawThe recent signing from Metz is still adapting to English football but is likely to start on Rangers’ left-hand side again. He will be up against Liam Grimshaw, who has come in for some flak for his displays at right-back in the early games, deputising for the long-term absentee Calum Woods.James Perch v Callum RobinsonWith Grant Hall serving a ban, Nedum Onuoha is required to shift across to centre-half, meaning a recall for Perch. He will need to be on his toes against the speedy Robinson, whose goal as a substitute in last weekend’s game against Fulham earned him a recall on Tuesday.Steven Caulker v Jermaine BeckfordBorn just eight miles apart, in Feltham and Ealing respectively, these two West Londoners will relish an aerial tussle. Caulker was disappointing in the loss at Oakwell, while former Wealdstone marksman Beckford will hope to improve on his three previous appearances against Rangers, when he has failed to find the net.Sebastian Polter v Tom Clarke and Bailey WrightAt the other end of the pitch, Polter – with two goals in his first three league games – will have a significant height advantage over both Preston centre-backs. His link up play with Tjaronn Chery will again be important.Click here for our QPR v Preston quizSee also:Hall sent off as QPR are beatenBarnsley v QPR player ratingsQPR should beat Preston – and Fulham’s odds are cut after good startMcManaman ‘too expensive’ for QPR – HasselbainkPreview: QPR looking to get back on track against PrestonQPR wait for news on Gladwin injuryFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The Care and Feeding of Your Pet Dragon

admin no comments

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now A dragon doesn’t make for a very good pet. They require care and feeding, and because of their size, their appetite is immense. When feeding a dragon, the one who is providing the food often finds themselves at great risk of being burned. After all, the dragon is, in fact, a dragon, and the one providing the food isn’t too different than the food itself.More still, cleaning up after a dragon isn’t a great joy either. Their messes are awful, and going around behind them trying to take care of destruction they leave in their wake is a never-ending task. It’s also a thankless task, with the dragon showing no appreciation for the work you are doing on its behalf.But hey, you wanted the dragon and worked hard to acquire it. You took the dragon from its prior owner, exerting a lot of effort to wrench it away from them. The dragon is more effort than it is worth, but because you worked so hard to bring it home, it’s embarrassing to admit that the dragon isn’t making that great of a pet.At some point, you realize that a dragon doesn’t make a very good pet. The best thing you can do with a dragon is to unchain yourself from it and release it into the wild where it can take care of itself until it finds someone else foolish enough to believe that a dragon would make a good pet.last_img read more

Crews cleaning up oil spill at Kinder Morgan station north of Kamloops

admin no comments

first_imgDARFIELD, B.C. – Crews using an emergency response trailer and vacuum trucks are working to clean up a crude oil spill at a Kinder Morgan station north of Kamloops, B.C.The provincial Ministry of Environment said a flow metre has leaked about 100 litres of crude oil into the ground at the Darfield station.It said no waterways have been affected, and the spill has been contained within station property.In a statement, Kinder Morgan said it was alerted to an operational disruption through its internal safety system in the early hours of Sunday morning.“The station was quickly isolated and as a precaution, the main Trans Mountain Pipeline has been shut down,” the company said, adding it expected to restart the pipeline Sunday afternoon.The company said air monitoring is ongoing, and it has notified neighbours and other stakeholders.It said the leaked product was a medium crude blend.The spill comes days before a deadline set by Kinder Morgan for its controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.The company suspended all non-essential construction on the project in April, citing opposition from the B.C. government that put the viability of the pipeline in question.It has set a May 31 deadline for getting assurances it can proceed without delays on the controversial project.Companies in this story: (TSX:KML)last_img read more
