View photo The Boys in Green youth manager says that the friendly games give him an opportunity to assess players coming through the ranks Paul Doolin has announced a 19-man Under-18 squad ahead of two friendly games against the Czech Republic. The panel contains a mixture of domestically based players and players who ply their trade abroad. Shamrock Rovers trio Shane Hanney, James Doona and Trevor Clark are joined by St Patrick's Athletic pair Jamie Aherne and Conor Kane in the squad. Cork City's Conor McCarthy and Shelbourne goalkeeper Eric Donnelly are also included. The Boys in Green boss says that the fixtures provide an opportunity for players to impress him and stake a claim for a place in his U-19 panel. "These fixtures gives us a chance to see what's coming through," Doolin said. "There's a mixture of home-based players with players from abroad. "When we played with a similar group last year we did very well. There are some good players in this group. I've only seen these players so most of them are new to me in terms of working directly with them. "It's a good opportunity for the players to step up the levels. We'll do the same as we've done with the players and hopefully they will benefit from the experience." The Republic of Ireland take on the Czech Republic on Saturday November 28 at 15:00 before contesting a second game at 12:00 on Monday. Both games will be played at Whitehall.

Dave Turton, Head of Community Safety at Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: This religious festival is a busy time, as families and friends get together and symbolic candles are lit. All of these ingredients increase the risk of fire in homes as it is easy to get distracted with all of the festivities going on. When celebrating, please follow our simple safety advice. Treat the Diva (candle) as you would any other flame: oUse only enough ghee (clarified butter) to last your Puja (worship). oPlace it in a suitable fire resistant candleholder and do not leave it unattended oKeep the flame a safe distance from curtains, furniture or decorations at all times. Long hair and clothing are also very flammable. Treat fireworks with great caution: oOnly buy fireworks marked with British Safety Standard BS7114 oAlways follow the firework code www.clevelandfire.gov.uk/bonfire Keep fireworks and candles out of the reach of children and ensure they are supervised at all times. If you decide to cook deep-fried food: oStand by your pan never leave cooking unattended. oDry your food before placing it in the hot oil. oIf the oil starts to smoke, turn off the heat and leave the pan to cool. oNever fill the pan more than one-third full of oil.

Getting The Answers For Locating Factors In Smoke Detectors In London


Barcelona dominates AP Global Football 10 after Madrid win - Yahoo Sports


LONDON (AP) -- Barcelona was voted team of the week in the Associated Press Global Football 10 on Tuesday after beating Real Madrid 4-0 away at the Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish League. Luis Suarez scored twice in the commanding win, while Andres Iniesta and Neymar added the others. ''What was expected to be a thrilling clash between the bitterest of rivals, became a game that showcased Barcelona's absolute supremacy over Real,'' Umaid Wasim of Dawn Newspaper in Pakistan said. ''Utterly dominant, the performance showed that their bid to win a treble again this year would take some stopping.'' Liverpool is runner-up in the team vote after a surprise 4-1 win away against Manchester City in the Premier League. ''On another week Liverpool would have done enough to claim the prize, and their 4-1 victory at Manchester City was perhaps the perfect example of what Jurgen Klopp has brought to the side,'' Julian Bennetts of Hayters news agency in England said. Bayern Munich is third after moving eight points clear at the summit of the German Bundesliga by beating Schalke 3-1. Leicester is fourth after replacing City at the top of the Premier League with a 3-0 win at Newcastle. Inter Milan takes fifth for thrashing Frosinone 4-0 in the Italian Serie A. Juventus , Manchester United , Paris Saint-Germain, Wolfsburg and Napoli round out the top 10 teams of the week. Barcelona also dominated the player vote. Suarez takes first place for his double strike, while the other two scorers, Iniesta and Neymar, are second and third. Leicester striker Jamie Vardy is fourth after equaling Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League matches as his side beat Newcastle to go top of the English standings. ''Jamie Vardy has shown Luis Suarez-type qualities during his amazing run of scoring in 10 straight Premier League games,'' Mike McGrath of The Sun in England said. Philippe Coutinho , who scored one and assisted another in Liverpool's win over City, is fifth.

Some Guidance On Real-world Smoke Detectors In Leicester Plans


Andre Ayew backs Swansea to get back into shape - Yahoo Sports


View photo The Swans midfielder believes his beleaguered manager will revive their Premier League campaign after series of poor results Swansea City midfielder Andre Ayew believes his side will get back into shape following an ongoing poor run in the English Premier League. Swansea's last win came at the Villa Park in September when Ayew's late strike gave them a 2-1 victory but the former Olympique Marseille star insists things will change very soon. Everything is going to get back into shape and we just need some time. You need that in football when things are difficult, Ayew told the club's website. We believe we have great players, a great squad, a great manager and everything will be okay. We just need to keep working hard and don't give up, he said. Swansea are billed to face Liverpool , Leicester, Manchester City and West Ham next in the league but Ayew believes they will stay focused in all games. When you're in a club like Swansea that wants to grow and you don't get the results everybody gets the pressure. That's normal, but we just want to stay focused on the field and not look at what's happening outside. We just concentrate on the pitch and listen to what the coach has to tell us about the tactics and what he wants to do. That's what's important, he added. Swansea are currently lying 14th on the log with 14 points, three points away from safety.

New fire appliances for Essex Seven new custom-built fire appliances will begin their working lives in Essex shortly, thanks to a joint money-saving purchasing arrangement with Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS). The new appliances are part of a 10 million contract with Angloco to provide a total of 42 new fire appliances over the next four years to Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. The first seven appliances will be new Heavy Rescue Pumps which have been designed on a bespoke basis to meet the needs of Essex. They combine the proven reliability of a Scania chassis with innovative new design features created by appliance builders Angloco. They incorporate a raft of specialist rescue equipment along with pumps and hoses which mean they can be deployed at a wide variety of incidents from house fires to complex rescues including road traffic collisions. The design of these appliances has been based on a consultation with six fire services in the Eastern Region. Each fire service contributed their best specification elements which has resulted in a modern fire appliance using advanced technology and innovation to make firefighting more effective and safer for Essexs crews. Acting Chief Fire Officer Adam Eckley said: These appliances have been designed to meet the demands of a modern fire and rescue service. Their flexibility reflects the wide range of work our crews carry out and they provide an excellent response capability which can deal with a huge range of incidents and emergencies. This is the latest investment we have made in frontline equipment. We are working to create a Service fit for the future and providing an excellent response by our highly trained crews in the right vehicles with the right equipment is at the core of that.

A Helping Hand With Recognising Central Criteria Of Smoke Detectors In London

The initiative was devised by the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) and was launched with widespread support from MPs, Councillors and Chief Fire Officers. They have signed an open letter to government asking for a review of provisions for fire sprinklers in building standards as well as a more proactive approach to the use of sprinkler and fire suppression systems. The sprinkler issue is already a high priority for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Service has worked extensively with housing provider Nottingham City Homes to identify which of their properties are occupied by people who are most at risk of fire. As a result Nottingham City Homes is installing sprinklers into some of its high rise blocks and new build bungalows and flats. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has also invested in a number of portable misting systems which will be allocated to some of the countys most vulnerable residents. Officers from the Services Fire Protection team are using Fire Sprinkler Week to raise awareness and promote the use of sprinklers in commercial premises. Chief Fire Officer Frank Swann said: For some time now nearly all fire and rescue services across the country have been promoting the use of sprinklers in both domestic and commercial properties. Many, like us, have been working alongside partners such as housing providers to ensure sprinklers are either retro-installed as necessary or are included in the plans for new-build properties. Although the issue has been on the national agenda for a while, it is important that initiatives like this are used to further promote awareness and understanding, as well as winning support from the government. We are therefore pleased to support Fire Sprinkler Week and will do all we can as a Service to continue to keep this issue at the forefront of peoples hearts and minds.

Soccer-Two-goal Kane on target again as Spurs thrash West Ham - Yahoo News


View gallery A worker cleans paint off a gravestone at the Harefield churchyard in Hillingdon, Britain November 23, LONDON (Reuters) - Graves of Australian soldiers killed in World War One have been daubed with graffiti for the second time in seven months in London. Blue paint sprayed on headstones at a churchyard in Hillingdon, west London was discovered on Sunday morning. It follows a similar attack at the same Harefield Church graveyard in April ahead of celebrations to commemorate 100 years since Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC)forces landed in Gallipoli, Turkey in their first major military action of World War One. "We are extremely disappointed by this deliberate act of vandalism and deplore the actions of those responsible," said Mike Bullen, assistant director general for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) which manages the graves. There are no clear words or symbols which can be made out in the graffiti to indicate any motive. Around 10,000 ANZAC forces died in the Gallipoli campaign against Ottoman Empire forces in 1915 and April 25 is used around the world as a day to remember all those Australians and New Zealanders who died in conflict. A worker cleans paint off a gravestone at the Harefield churchyard in Hillingdon, Britain November 2 The graveyard is a major British site for the annual remembrance celebrations. Police said they were investigating the incident. The CWGC said such attacks on its graves were rare and plans to restore them to their original condition.
