Wilshere ruled out for ‘few weeks’

first_img The 23-year-old England midfielder’s career has been punctuated by injury and now he has suffered another – a hairline crack of his left fibula. Wilshere will miss Sunday’s Premier League season opener with West Ham and is also likely out of England’s Euro 2016 qualifying Group E fixtures with San Marino and Switzerland next month. Wenger said on arsenal.com: “I had a bad surprise because it is a hairline crack in his fibula that makes him a few weeks out.” Reports suggested Wilshere could be out for around two months, but Arsenal have not put an exact timescale on the injury yet. Wilshere missed last Sunday’s Community Shield defeat of Chelsea, the Premier League champions, after suffering the injury in training the previous day. Wenger initially said it would be a “matter of days” before Wilshere returned, but it swiftly became apparent he would miss the Hammers clash – and now the prognosis is far worse. It is the latest worrying blow for Wilshere, who returned in May following another lengthy spell out with an ankle problem and has had numerous injuries throughout his career. Wenger added: “There is minimal damage apart from the bone damage – there is no damage at all apart from that. “It was a collision in training and it was all completely accidental.” Wilshere will continue to be assessed and treated by FA Cup winners Arsenal and there was no mention of whether surgery will be required or not. Press Association Forward Danny Welbeck (knee) will also miss the opening game of the season, along with midfielder Tomas Rosicky (knee). “We have Welbeck on a progressive recovery and Rosicky on a progressive recovery,” Wenger added. “He (Welbeck) is not too far away, but he is not ready for Sunday.” Alexis Sanchez is also unlikely to be included after winning the Copa America with Chile in early July. “Alexis is back in training but I don’t think he will be involved on Sunday, it is a bit early maybe,” Wenger said. “He came back in good fitness shape so that is quite positive, but I am not surprised by that because I can’t imagine him lying around for four weeks and doing nothing. That wouldn’t be him.” Jack Wilshere will miss key games for Arsenal and England after being ruled out for “a few weeks” with an ankle injury, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has said. last_img read more

Local day care worker arrested for abusing infant who refused to nap

first_imgA day care worker in Margate, Florida has been arrested for allegedly abusing an infant who refused to take a nap during their scheduled nap time.The incident was reported at the Learning City Academy, at 7336 West Atlantic Blvd, in May of 2018.Authorities say 59-year-old Gladys LaRosa told investigators that she became angry with the infant because nap time had been going on for 30 minutes and instead of napping like the other children, the 18-month-old was playing with his toys and making noise. La Rosa says she planned to go over to the infant and soothe him to sleep, however, when she got to him, her anger got the best of  her and she pushed the infant down on the cot causing him to hit his head on the metal frame.LaRosa then told investigators that she only noticed the infant had been injured when she changed his diaper and noticed a cut on his face. She then cleaned the cut and washed the blood off of the cot with bleach.She was arrested at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday and has been charged with aggravated child abuse.A judge granted her an $1,000 bond and instructed her to stay away from the victim and to not work in places that involve children.last_img read more

Army Stakeholders Learn about New Guidance for Energy Efficiency Resiliency Investments

first_imgWith the objective of DOD’s former Energy Conservation Investment Program recently extended to include projects designed to enhance energy resilience, officials from across the Army responsible for the rechristened Energy Resilience and Conservation Investment Program (ERCIP) met last month to learn about the service’s new planning guidance for prospective projects. The importance of updating the Army’s process for reviewing candidates was heightened due to the service’s directive requiring installations to ensure critical mission capabilities are protected from disruption, said Dominic Ragucci, the Army’s ERCIP program manager. The directive calls for installations to develop the capability to sustain their energy and water requirements for at least 14 days during a service interruption.The directive requires backup power systems which may not save an installation money in the same way a conventional energy efficiency or renewable project would, leading to a revision in the lifecycle cost analysis for projects, Ragucci said. Achieving energy resiliency and security means installations essentially are backing up backup systems, he explained, and trying to satisfy a minimum savings-to-investment ratio can be challenging, reported the Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville.Photo by Stephen Baack Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
