The Environment Agency is holding a public drop-in session at Calstock next week to explain how potential works could reduce flood risk to local homes and businesses, and benefit the environment.According to EA, the current embankment by the River Tamar which protects Calstock from flooding is in poor condition and needs replacing.Dan Boswell of the Environment Agency said: “The existing flood defense embankment in Calstock protects property and community assets but is in poor condition and unsustainable in its current position. By moving it inland it can be maintained to a better standard to increase its effectiveness at reducing flood risk and allow the creation of inter-tidal habitat to help offset the impacts of rising sea levels on wildlife.”The Calstock plan includes:managing flood risk to the community, and the impacts of climate change;protecting the environment and visual landscape of Calstock and the Tamar Valley as an important recreational amenity;enhancing the environment by attracting additional wildlife to the improved local habitat on land reconnected to the river.The drop-in session on the proposed work will take place in the Kelly Room of Calstock Arts on Wednesday 8 November 2017, from 3pm to 8pm.[mappress mapid=”24577″]

Newcastle have completed the signing of forward Siem de Jong from Eredivisie champions Ajax. De Jong joins Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez and Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback in joining the Magpies this summer as boss Alan Pardew looks to win over the fans following what was seen by many as a disappointing campaign last term. “We are absolutely overjoyed to bring Siem to the club because he will give us intelligence in the final third and create goalscoring situations, which we lacked towards the end of last season,” Pardew said. “It is a big signing for this club. Siem brings massive experience from Ajax. I think our fans are going to enjoy the way he plays and I cannot wait to start working with him.” De Jong played almost 250 times for Ajax, scoring 78 goals, and has netted twice in six appearances for his country. Press Association “Newcastle United have completed the signing of Ajax captain Siem de Jong,” read a statement from the club. “The 25-year-old Dutch international attacking midfielder has moved to Tyneside for an undisclosed fee, signing a six-year deal at St James’ Park.” De Jong’s younger brother Luuk struggled to make an impact for Newcastle after signing on loan in January, but De Jong senior is relishing the challenge of the Premier League. “It is great to have signed for Newcastle,” he said. “It is a big club which my brother told me all about, so I already feel good here. “I had been at Ajax a long time and wanted a new challenge in a new environment and a new country. “Coming to Newcastle is a great opportunity and the chance to play for a club like this in the Premier League was one I could not turn down. “I am looking forward to starting training and meeting my new team-mates and hopefully we can have a successful season.” The 25-year-old Holland international moves to Tyneside for an undisclosed fee and has penned a six-year deal at St James’ Park. De Jong came through the Amsterdammers’ fabled youth system and has won four Dutch titles since making his debut in 2007, assuming the captaincy in 2012.
Unseeded Florida Gulf Coast gave North Carolina a fit in an NCAA tournament second-round matchup last week, but the Tar Heels prevailed in double overtime, 3-2. The win earned UNC a date with Syracuse, which coasted past Dartmouth, 3-0, behind Sergio Camargo’s two goals and assist. The two Atlantic Coast Conference foes meet for the fourth time in two years Sunday at 2 p.m. at Onondaga Community College’s Murphy Field, instead of at SU Soccer Stadium because of field conditions.The winner of No. 8 seed Syracuse (12-3-4, 3-2-3 ACC) and No. 9 seed North Carolina (12-3-3, 5-1-2) will host an Elite Eight tilt against either Creighton or Providence, which stunned No. 1 seed Maryland.Here’s what you need to know ahead of the matchup, SU’s third straight Sweet 16 appearance.All-time series: North Carolina leads, 2-0-2 (Syracuse advanced past UNC on penalty kicks in last year’s ACC tournament, a game recorded as a tie.)Last time they met: A Friday night battle between then-No. 3 Syracuse and No. 4 UNC, two of the country’s top offenses, ended in a scoreless tie. Syracuse owned a 5-2 advantage in shots on goal and outshot UNC, 13-6, but the closest SU came to a score was a Chris Nanco shot off the crossbar.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe North Carolina report: The Tar Heels are as deep as SU. Six players on each team have netted at least three goals. Where UNC separates itself is offensively: seven times this year the Tar Heels have scored three or more goals, including twice they have scored five or more (SU has not scored more than four in a game).Redshirt senior forward Tucker Hume netted four goals through UNC’s first eight games. The 6-foot-5, 203-pound Division II transfer has size, skill and experience that make him dangerous. His 11-goal total last year ranked second in the conference, and his seven goals this year places second on the team. He’s flanked by Zach Wright, who’s posted five scores and seven assists, and Nils Bruening, a sophomore with a team-leading eight goals.How Syracuse beats North Carolina: While SU’s scoring offense places only 33rd in the country, its defense is dominant. A fourth-ranked goals-against average (0.55) and a shutout percentage (0.58) that ranks tied for fourth nationwide have kept Syracuse just two wins away from a trip to Houston for the College Cup. The Orange could rely on its defense for 110 minutes then take its chances in penalty kicks.The Orange could also try to set up Chris Nanco. When the senior forward scores, SU is 17-0 over the last four years. Sergio Camargo has come on of late — the senior transfer has four goals in SU’s last seven games after not having scored in his first nine games.Stat to know: 11 — The Tar Heels place in the nation’s top 12 in 11 statistical categories, including goals-against average (third), assists per game (second) and shutout percentage (third).Player to watch: Tucker Hume, forward, No. 36Hume scored in both SU-UNC matchups last year. The first goal came off a ball passed around the box that found Hume. On the second, he tied last year’s ACC quarterfinal bout, sending it to overtime before SU advanced on penalty kicks. A Rollins College (Florida) transfer, Hume could give SU’s back line difficulties with an imposing frame and knack for scoring.

The Argentina striker struck to cancel out Iker Muniain’s first half strike and set up an intriguing second leg in SpainGonzalo Higuain’s second half equaliser rescued Napoli as they drew 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of their Champions League third round qualifying tie.Iker Muniain put the La Liga side in front just before half-time and they looked to be on their way to an impressive win, only for Higuain to level on 68 minutes.The two sides meet again in Spain on August 27 with all to play for as they bid to reach the group stages of Europe’s elite competition.Both teams had opportunities inside the opening 10 minutes, with Marek Hamsik heading over a Higuain cross from a central position before firing over the bar after good work from Lorenzo Insigne.But it was the visitors who took the lead on 42 minutes when Muniain fired home into the bottom right-hand corner after being fed by Oscar De Marcos. Athletic could well have extended their lead early in the second period, with Arturo Ardiz going close with a left footed effort, 49 minutes in.Napoli had little in the way of goalscoring opportunities but found themselves back on level terms on 68 minutes as Hamsik supplied Higuain inside the area, who duly found the back of the net to make it 1-1.The result gives the Spanish side a slight edge heading into the second leg, which takes place a week on Wednesday at San Mames.
He didn’t exactly say she was a gold digger, but she don’t date broke ballers.Former NBA baller Antoine Walker is still seething from the fallout from longtime ex-girlfiend Evelyn Lozada. Walker, who infamously squandered all of his $110 million NBA fortune and is now buried under millions of dollars of debt, says Lozada left skid marks out of their relationship when the million-dollar lifestyle came to an abrupt halt.Walker broached the topic during a provocative and comprehensive interview with “The Russ Parr Morning Show” and he went in hard on Lozada:“My thing with Evelyn is she reaped a lot of benefits of my wealth. And when it got tight, she chose to go a different direction. So that’s the problem that I have with Evelyn.“Evelyn went on with her reality show and we all know all her relationships she’s been in since me. It hasn’t been about let me make sure Antoine is ok. So that’s a big difference. I dated Evelyn for ten years. In 1999…I signed my ninth deal in 1999. So she got to reap the whole benefits of the whole process.“It’s tough when you take care of people and you make sure they’re good…their family…their daughters and then they just go left field. “When it’s been asked why didn’t Walker wife up Lozada if they dated for a decade, Walker responds this way:“We got engaged in 2007. We had a nasty…she caught me in a nasty breakup. We had broke up for a minute there. That’s what delayed the marriage.“And then she left when things started to hit the fan.”What do you think? Does Walker have a point? She also bolted from her famous relationship with Chad Johnson after he went broke and was guilty of domestic violence against her.The problem with that is this: Walker was known for being a philandering boyfriend who often cheated on Lozada and was physically abusive towards her. But she stayed with Walker for 10 years.Well, hopefully a third times a charm. Lozada is engaged to yet another big-money athlete, Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Carl Crawford. They now have a child together.

But their defence has been mean on the road, conceding just seven goals – only Manchester City (6) have conceded fewer away goals.
