first_imgTottenham boss Pochettino: No need to prioritise competitionsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says they won’t prioritise competitions this season.Their current run of four successive victories equals their best of the campaign and their manager is keen for them to avoid any slip-ups which may interfere with that, starting at home to Bournemouth today.”Two seasons ago when we were fighting with Leicester we went to the end but the gap was so big (they finished 11 points behind in third),” he said.”It wasn’t enough. Now we are close but we need to be cautious, go step-by-step, game-by-game.”We need to be conscious about that, we need to fight a lot, and there is still a long way for work and to be consistent.”Being involved in four competitions will be tough but we are going to try.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Annual pace of housing starts picked up in October topped expectations

first_imgOTTAWA – An increase in multi-unit projects such as condominiums, apartments and townhouses helped push the annual pace of housing starts in October higher, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. said Thursday.The housing agency said the seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts last month came in at 205,925 units, up from 189,730 in September.Economists had expected an annual rate of 200,000, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.CMHC said the six-month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates was 206,171 in October, down from 207,809 in September.BMO Capital Markets senior economist Sal Guatieri said the housing market continues to stabilize after getting dinged by tougher mortgage rules earlier this year, and remains healthy despite higher interest rates.“The report confirms that national housing construction, though slowing, remains healthy and above long-run household formation rates, supported by solid demographic trends,” Guatieri wrote in a brief report.However, CIBC economist Royce Mendes noted the growth was due to the multiples component.“The fact that headline starts rose on the month is still a positive for tracking estimates of the economy,” Mendes wrote.“But given that it came on the back of an increase in multiples coupled with a drop in singles, means that the latest reading on starts may not prove sustainable. We still see the cocktail of tighter lending rules and higher interest rates as causing housing activity to become a drag on the economy come 2019.”The growth in housing starts in October came as the annual pace of urban starts climbed by 8.6 per cent to 191,964 units.The annual rate of urban multiple-unit projects increased by 16.8 per cent to 145,442 units. Urban starts for single-detached homes fell 10.7 per cent to 46,522 units.Rural starts were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 13,961 units.Earlier this week, CMHC said it expected the real estate market to moderate over the next two years.In its annual outlook, the agency forecasted housing starts and sales to both decline in 2019 and 2020.It expects housing starts for single and multi-unit starts will fall to between 193,700 and 204,500 in 2019, while sales are expected come in between 478,400 and 497,400 units.Prices are anticipated to range from $501,400 and $521,600.last_img read more

Rahul Gayle pulverise MI attack post 1974

first_imgMumbai: World Cup hopeful KL Rahul slammed an unbeaten hundred, his first in the Indian Premier League, as Kings XI Punjab also rode on Chris Gayle’s pyrotechnics to post 197/4 in 20 overs against Mumbai Indians here on Wednesday. Rahul (100 not out off 64 balls) and Gayle (63 off 36 balls) joined hands for a 116-run opening wicket partnership to give the away side a blistering start. While Rahul hit six fours and six sixes, Gayle bludgeoned seven maximums and three sixes.

But Rahul ensured they get to a above par score by smashing Hardik Pandya 6-4-6-6 in the first four deliveries of the 19th over and then hit Jasprit Bumrah for a four and six in the final over as 38 runs came in the last two overs. Gayle, typically, took time to get going and it was only in the fifth over that the legendary West Indian changed gears by hitting Jason Behrendorff for three sixes and one four as the Aussue leaked 23 runs. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterKings XI were 50/0 at the end of Powerplay with both batsmen looking in ominous form. Rahul hit last match’s hero Alzarri Joseph for a delectable six and a four in the seventh over to continue his good form with the bat as Mumbai bowlers looked rudderless without captain Rohit Sharma who could not play due to an injury. There was no stopping Gayle as he plundered a six and two fours off Pandya in the ninth over which costed the home team 17 runs as Kings XI raced to 93/0 at the halfway stage. Gayle then brought up his 26th fifty in the IPL off 31 balls by smacking Krunal Pandya for a six in the 11th over. Punjab badly needed to break the partnership and Behrendorff did it, coming back to remove Gayle. Trying to hit another six, Gayle holed out to Krunal Pandya at deep midwicket. David Miller (7) did not last long, caught behind by Quinton de Kock off Hardik Pandya as the scoring slowed down. Karun Nair — playing in place of injured Mayank Agarwal — followed suit managing only five runs before nicking one to de Kock behind the stumps of Hardik Pandya. Sam Curran (8) tried to be cheeky but Bumrah got the better off him as the England all-rounder scooped one to de Kock. But just when it looked like Mumbai had successfully reined in, Rahul went berserk in the last two overs. Brief scores: Kings XI Punjab 197/4 (K L Rahul 100, Chris Gayle 63; Hardik Pandya 2/57) vs Mumbai Indians.last_img read more
