Thames Valley Police are urging all local residents to avoid making themselves prey to burglars by locking up. According to a police spokesperson, “Over the summer months even more of us are tempted to leave windows open all day when we are out.” This term alone, thefts have been reported at Merton, New, Brasenose and Jesus colleges. The robbers have mainly targeted laptops. University College is so concerned at the threat posed by intruders that it now offers free alarms for all women living in a ground floor room. One victim of crime, second year historian Sanam Mirza, warned other students to buy a tether to secure their laptop. “Back up all your bloody work,” she added.ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img read more

Sierra Boggess on Exiting School of Rock for Phantom

first_img School of Rock – The Musical View Comments Star Files In the corporate world, employees leaving a job are often asked to sit through an exit interview with HR about their time at the company. That concept doesn’t exist for Broadway performers, but we love checking in with stars as they finish up a successful run. Broadway fave Sierra Boggess is saying farewell to the halls of School of Rock’s prestigious prep school Horace Green to once again step into the Paris Opera House as Christine Daaé in The Phantom of the Opera—only this time, she will literally be in Paris. Yes, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Angel of Music is swapping one of his hit shows for another. Before Boggess hears the final bell at School of Rock on August 8, we asked her to take Broadway.com’s Exit Interview and tell us what she’ll miss about being part of the faculty.How did you feel when you first got this job?So excited to get to originate such a different type of character than I have played before!How do you feel now that you’re leaving?Bittersweet. I’m excited for the next phase but sad to leave this group of people.What are three words you would use to describe your experience?Joyful, renewed, inspired.What was the easiest thing about this job?Coming to work! There is so much joy on that stage—it is fun to be around.What was the hardest thing?When any of the kids got too big and had to leave. That sucked.  What was the highlight of your time at this job? The kids. Hands down. Doing a show with this many children and being reminded that joy is our birthright.What skills do you think are required for future job applicants? A balance of openness offstage and sternness onstage!What advice would you give to future employees in your job position? Be sure to take time to enjoy the process.How do you think you’ve grown?I feel inspired and rejuvenated.Why are you leaving?I am about to sing all in French my favorite role of all time, Christine in The Phantom of the Opera in Paris! What will you miss the most?The people.

Emiliano Martinez wanted by former Arsenal manager Unai Emery at Villarreal

It has now reached a situation that neither would be happy to accept the role of understudy to the other, so one is likely to leave before the end of the transfer window.If Leno returns to the starting XI then Emery is keen to take Martinez to Villarreal, reports the Telegraph, where he works with goalkeeping coach Javi Garcia, who was also with Emery and Martinez at Arsenal.Schalke have also been credited with an interest in Martinez, as have Aston Villa so he is not short of options if he decides to bring his long spell in north London to an end.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityAfter his lengthy service to the club, the Telegraph reports that Arsenal may be willing to accept as little as £7m for the goalkeeper, despite still having two years left on his contract.This would only be if Martinez makes it clear he wants to leave, though, as Arsenal would rather keep hold of the impressive stopper and are keen for him to sign a new deal.Arteta wants to keep hold of both ‘keepers and see them compete for the number one spot.‘I’m delighted to have both of them,’ the Spaniard said before the Community Shield. ‘But they both know that on the first day of pre-season, you start again and fight for your place and show us who is the one that deserves the chance to start.

It’s not easy to do that. ‘I personally don’t see any different with goalkeepers to full-backs.

New charges filed against Rush County sex offender

first_imgRushville, In. — Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force has arrested Joseph E Stevens, 26, of Rushville, following a month-long investigation. The warrant was served at the Rush County Jail where he was incarcerated for unrelated charges.Stevens, a registered sex offender in the State of Indiana, was the target of the investigation following information received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Deeney pens new Watford deal

first_img The 27-year-old scored 21 goals as the Hornets finished second to Bournemouth last season and secure a return to the top flight after an eight-year absence. Deeney, who has been a target for a number of clubs in recent seasons, will now look to prove he can cut it in the Premier League and will go into the first game of the campaign against Everton buoyed by his new contract. Watford striker Troy Deeney has signed a new five-year deal with the Barclays Premier League newcomers. Watford wrote on their official Twitter account: ” @T_Deeney has signed a new 5-year contract with us. 5 years with us 2010-2015 – and now 5 more! Troy Deeney: #watfordfc’s No. 9.” His tally last season means former Walsall hitman Deeney has struck at least 20 goals in each of the previous three campaigns. Signed from The Saddlers in 2010, Deeney amassed 81 goals in 220 Championship appearances and will no doubt be pivotal if Watford are to survive in the Premier League under the stewardship of new boss Quique Sanchez Flores. The Pozzo family who own the club are likely to bankroll a number of arrivals before the season begins with the likes of Tottenham midfield duo Etienne Capoue and Benjamin Stambouli both heavily linked to the club. Roma full-back Jose Holebas has already joined and it is reported that Allan Nyom of Udinese, another club owned by the Pozzo family, is also closing in on a move to Watford. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News AMAZING – Tim Southee equals THIS batting feat of Sachin Tendulkar in Tests

first_img New Delhi: When it comes to comparison between Sachin Tendulkar and Tim Southee in batting, there is absolutely NO comparison. Tendulkar has played 200 Tests and has scored 15921 runs at an average of 54 with 51 centuries. Southee, on the other hand, has played 66 Tests and managed just 1564 runs at an average of just under 18. Tendulkar batted in the middle order while Southee is a tailender. However, in the Galle Test against Sri Lanka which is part of the ongoing World Test Championship, Southee equalled Tendulkar’s feat in stunning fashion. When Southee launched Akila Dananjaya for a six over long off, Southee equalled Tendulkar’s tally of sixes hit in Test cricket. Tendulkar hit 69 sixes in his 200-Test career but what is impressive about Southee is that he has hit 69 sixes in just 66 Tests, which indicates his far superior big-hitting prowess. When it comes to most sixes hit by tailenders in Test cricket, Southee is miles ahead than any cricketer. Southee’s tally of 69 sixes is the most by a tailender and he is one of only two tailenders to hit 50 or more sixes in Tests, the second being former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram, who hit 57 sixes in 104 Tests.The overall list of sixes hit in Test cricket is headed by former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum, who smashed 107 sixes in 101 Tests. Adam Gilchrist, the former Australia wicketkeeper, is second on the list having hit 100 sixes in 96 Tests. When one looks at superior sixes versus number of Tests played, only six players make the cut, including Southee. The other players who have hit more sixes in relation to number of matches played, McCullum leads the tally with 107 sixes from 101 games. Gilchrist is second with 100 from 96 Tests followed by New Zealand’s Chris Cairns who hit 87 sixes in 62 Tests. Andrew Flintoff of England hit 82 sixes in 79 Tests while Pakistan’s Misbah ul Haq hit 81 sixes in 75 Tests. Many of Tendulkar’s records in batting might never be broken, but in Galle, Southee has equalled one feat and is on the cusp of breaking at least one record set by what many consider the greatest batsman ever. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img Sachin Tendulkar has hit 69 sixes in 200 Tests.Tim Southee has hit 69 sixes in just 66 Tests.Southee has hit the most sixes by any tailender in Test history.last_img read more
