But don’t let that deter you — it’s not too trendy, it has just the right touch of edge to balance out the romantic vibes.This sweater is currently available in numerous color combinations. You can choose one of the options adorned with classic red hearts or go for something a little less traditional, like the white or black hearts. Each garment is made in the same style, so it all comes down to which shade will look best. See it!- Advertisement –last_img read more

French, Dutch join forces to urge EU to show teeth on trade

first_imgFrance and the Netherlands have joined forces to urge the European Union to enforce environmental and labor standards more forcefully with countries the bloc signs trade deals with, according to a document seen by Reuters.The initiative comes as the EU tries to negotiate a new trade deal with Britain, which formally left the bloc on Jan. 31, amid concerns that it might seek to undercut EU labor and environmental standards to boost its competitiveness.The involvement of the traditionally strongly pro-free trade Dutch underscores a shift in European thinking on the need to protect domestic industry and jobs, a French diplomat said, as the coronavirus pandemic batters the global economy. “Wake-up call”An official at the European Commission, which handles trade policy on behalf of EU member states, told Reuters the proposals were “timely” and would be taken into account in a policy review announced by Trade Commissioner Phil Hogan and planned for later this year.The French and Dutch, who want the proposals applied both to deals under negotiation and to updates of existing trade pacts, urged the Commission to inform member states more regularly on the impact that trade deals have on European jobs and domestic industries.The document also says a commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate change must be a pre-requisite for any trade pact. Trump has decided to ditch the climate pact.France has long favored a more protectionist stance on trade. As early as his first EU summit in 2017, President Emmanuel Macron said attracting foreign investment should not mean exposing Europe to “the disorder of globalization”, and he cautioned the EU against being too “naive” in global trade.French officials say the coronavirus pandemic has further exposed the dangers of relying too much on competitors such as China for critical supplies and contributed to an increased wariness among EU nations such as the Netherlands and the Nordics that have long supported unrestricted free trade.”Countries for which this agenda was seen as very French a few months ago are now shifting,” a French diplomatic source told Reuters. “There’s a sort of wake-up call in Europe.”The Franco-Dutch document was first reported by the Financial Times. Topics :center_img A more assertive China and US President Donald Trump’s more protectionist ‘America-First’ agenda have also helped to reshape European attitudes towards free trade.In their joint proposal sent to the other 25 EU member states, the French and Dutch trade ministers urge the European Commission to be ready to raise tariffs against trade partners that fail to meet their commitments on sustainable development.”Trade policy instruments can provide additional leverage to the implementation of international environmental and labor standards,” the document said.The EU should link tariff reductions “where relevant” to the effective implementation of trade and sustainable development provisions and be willing to take action when those provisions are breached, it added.last_img read more

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicolas compares Celtic star Odsonne Edouard to Alexandre Lacazette

first_img Comment Advertisement Odsonne Edouard has been linked with a potential transfer from Celtic to Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Charlie Nicholas believes Celtic striker and Arsenal transfer target Odsonne Edouard would represent a possible replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, rather than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.The Gunners are fretting over the futures of their two £50million strikers, but Aubameyang’s case if the most pressing, given he has just over a year left on his contract and is coveted by the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United. Lacazette, meanwhile, who’s current deal does not expire until the summer of 2022, has struggled to find his best form this season having been hindered by a persistent ankle injury. Edouard, meanwhile, has flourished at Celtic this term, scoring 28 goals in all competitions and Nicholas believes he bears a striking resemblance to his French compatriot Lacazette.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTHe told Sky Sports: ‘He could certainly play at Arsenal because the way they play, his style would be more than suitable for it. ‘The problem is getting the judgement right over whether he’s ready right now, playing every week for Arsenal compared to who is there already. ‘I’m a big fan of Alexandre Lacazette, and Edouard has got quite a bit of Lacazette in style within his game.‘He certainly would not come to England straightaway and score 20 to 25 goals in a season unless Arsenal find a renewed belief and they get the whole team right. ‘It’s got potential, absolutely, but I’m not convinced that they will go and buy him. The reason is that in Scotland, Celtic are gauging him as a £40m player.‘This will come down to what Edouard wants. If he wants to leave, then he will leave. Celtic will take the cash rather than have a player who is not committed to the cause because historically that’s what they have done – with Dembele, Virgil van Dijk and Kieran Tierney.’MORE: Kevin Campbell explains how Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta can emulate Pep Guardiola’s successMORE: Bacary Sagna defends ‘amazing’ Alexandre Lacazette after criticism from Arsenal fansRead the latest updates: Coronavirus news live Arsenal legend Charlie Nicolas compares Celtic star Odsonne Edouard to Alexandre Lacazettecenter_img Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 7 Apr 2020 8:47 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link1.8kShareslast_img read more

Rush: Judge Rodgers on trophies

first_img “Those standards were set by Bill Shankly in the 1970s and Bob Paisley took them on. It is a difficult level to attain but those are the standards. “Why shouldn’t that be the judgement? No one is saying he has to get there straight away, that he immediately must start winning the Premier League or the Champions League. But that has to be the aim. The key is to maintain improvement. If you can do that every year eventually you will get there.” An inconsistent season has left Liverpool in seventh place, five points behind Everton heading into Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield. While they demolished Newcastle 6-0 last weekend, having also beaten Swansea and Norwich 5-0 this season, they have also lost at home to strugglers Aston Villa and West Brom and were knocked out of the FA Cup by npower League One Oldham. “I do believe they are going the right way towards doing that and they are playing good football,” added Rush, speaking at the launch of the McDonald’s ’10 Years of Teamwork’ grassroots football report which reviewed what has been achieved at grassroots level in Wales in the last decade. “Liverpool have done well and played some excellent football. They need to stick with Brendan Rodgers because we can see light at the end of the tunnel. We have tripped ourselves up a couple of times just when you think the corner has been turned. “We expected to beat West Brom and Aston Villa at Anfield but it didn’t happen. However, the football has been good and next year is going to be a big one. The players will all have an additional year’s experience and if they can sign a couple more I believe the improvement will continue.” The Reds’ record goalscorer insists the club’s high standards of the past must be met – something Rodgers is well aware of himself – and a positive first season in charge for the Northern Irishman is a step in the right direction. “Liverpool have high standards. That is what you must be judged by,” Rush, who won two European Cups, five league titles, three FA Cups and five league cups at Anfield, told Press Association Sport. Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush believes manager Brendan Rodgers will ultimately have to be judged on the trophies he wins at Anfield.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Wilshere admits smoking ‘mistake’

first_imgArsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has expressed regret after being photographed smoking while on holiday in Las Vegas, admitting it was “unacceptable”. Press Association “The smoking? Of course I regret it,” he was quoted as saying by several national newspapers. “I’ve been seen before doing it. I said then I made a mistake and I have made a mistake again. People make mistakes. “I’m young and I’ll learn from it. I realise the consequences it has and the effect on kids growing up. “I have kids myself and I don’t want them growing up to think their dad smokes and it’s okay for a footballer to smoke because it’s not. It’s unacceptable and I will accept the consequences and I will move on.” Wilshere, speaking shortly before Arsenal’s 1-0 friendly defeat to the New York Red Bulls, revealed he is driven to succeed by his critics. The forthcoming season may be a defining one for Wilshere, who has had his fair share of injuries in the last three campaigns, but the 22-year-old is keen to prove he is up to the challenge. He added: “It does motivate me to try harder in training and not just in training; it motivates me to improve because a lot of people have started to talk (about me) – people who don’t know me but want to have an opinion. Now it is down to me. “This is a big season for me. I came back early to pre-season to show people my commitment. I am fully committed to the club and to my job and I want to show everyone that. “Over the past few seasons I’ve had a few injuries. This season I’m looking to have a really great pre-season and get a really good base of fitness and take that into the season.” center_img Wilshere was criticised last year when a photo of him smoking a cigarette outside a nightclub emerged and he pledged it would never happen again. However, the most recent image shows him once more smoking alongside friends in a swimming pool, and Wilshere admits he regrets his latest indiscretion. last_img read more

Men’s basketball: No. 6 Wisconsin earns outright Big Ten title with road win over Minnesota

first_imgWisconsin was locked in from start to finish and now it can lay claim as the undisputed top team in the Big Ten.Frank Kaminsky had 25 points and Sam Dekker added 20 points as the No. 6 Wisconsin men’s basketball team knocked off Minnesota Thursday night on the road, 76-63, to win the Big Ten regular season title outright.It is Wisconsin’s (17-3, 15-2 Big Ten) first outright conference regular season title since 2008 and assures the Badgers of the number one seed in the Big Ten tournament next week.“Well I’m proud of them,” Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan said. “They had goals. I’ve been saying that all along. What’s in a player’s mind they only know but Frank made his intentions well-known along with some other guys. So we played it out and tonight we clinched it outright.”“To win it in a rivalry game on Minnesota’s court with so many of our own fans here is something pretty special,” Kaminsky said.The Gophers (17-13, 6-11 Big Ten) cut the Badgers’ lead down to six at 46-40 to start the second half after a three from Nate Mason but that would be as close as they would get for the rest of the game.Minnesota fought back one more time later in the half, trimming the lead to seven with 10:15 left in the game, but Wisconsin responded with a three from Josh Gasser and never let its lead dip below double-digits from that point on.Kaminsky and Dekker were joined by Nigel Hayes (12) in double-figures Thursday night. Hayes also added nine rebounds while Kaminsky and Dekker each added six.Kaminsky set a career-high with seven assists and was 10-for-15 from the floor including 2-for-4 from three.Wisconsin finished the game shooting 50 percent from both the field (28-for-56) and three-point (10-for-20).Mason finished with a team-high 15 points for the Gophers while Carlos Morris added 11 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Badgers were on their way to their second-straight win and fourth conference title under Ryan.The Badgers opened up the game on a 14-4 run and pushed their lead to 20 at 36-16 after a Hayes layup with 6:30 left in the half. Kaminsky had 13 points at that point and finished the half with 16 while Dekker added 14.Minnesota would battle back to finish the half down 10 at 44-34 but not after Wisconsin shot 63 percent (17-for-27) overall including 70 percent (7-for-10) from three over the first half of play.The Badgers’ 44 first half points were the most in a single half of a Big Ten road game this season for UW.“That’s when it’s really fun because everyone’s sharing the ball, everyone’s moving well,” Dekker said of the hot-shooting first half for the Badgers. “Then when you get on that it kind of become contagious and the hoop really opens up and hopefully we can continue to do that.”With the number one seed in the Big Ten tournament wrapped up, the Badgers will tip-off at 11 a.m. Friday morning. They’ll take on the winner of the eight seed vs. nine seed matchup from Thursday.Before the tournament begins next week, Wisconsin has one regular season game remaining. Sunday, the Badgers will be on the road once again to take on Ohio State in Columbus. Tip-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on CBS.last_img read more
