Run around!by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United legend Alan Shearer slammed the performance of Liverpool’s strikers during their FA Cup defeat to Wolves.Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi were both given rare starts with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all dropping to the bench.Asked if he was not impressed with the forwards, Shearer said: “Not impressed? “You’ve got one guy Sturridge out of contract at the end of this season. You’ve got Origi 18 months left on his contract.“Do something, run around, cause the centre-halves a problem. They have done nothing.“Playing as individuals, look, 30 yards apart. He wins the header here, where’s Sturridge in case he wins that header? Get over and help your team-mate.“Look at him, he’s not even moving towards the ball. Quite content, not working as a partnership, no movement, no running in behind.“Flat, no energy, they’ve not done anything to upset those Wolves centre-halves.“I can’t even say how they’ve had a sweat on, the two forwards, because they’ve done nothing.“The manager should be going absolutely berserk, particularly at those two in the first half because they’ve added nothing whatsoever.” last_img read more

Bank accounts can be used to teach kids basic financial literacy lessons

first_imgOTTAWA – Omar Abouzaher remembers going to the bank with his daughter so she could make her first deposit into an account that was opened for her when she was just a toddler.The regional vice-president for the Bank of Montreal’s daughter was four when they took her piggy bank to deposit the coins.“She’s a banker at heart,” he said.While RESP accounts can help parents save for a child’s education, opening a savings account for a child can be the first step in teaching basic financial literacy, Abouzaher said.“I believe sometimes we wait too long until the kids are a bit older and try to cram all this financial information and throw it at them,” he said.Abouzaher recommends starting with teaching what it means to save and then build on that foundation.“The older they grow, they’ll understand as well the other components or the other pieces that are maybe a little bit more complex when it comes to understanding debt, understanding what it takes to pay tuition, what it takes to manage your credit,” he said.Parents hoping to teach their children the power of compound interest on their savings today will have a harder time than parents in the 1970s and 1980s, when interest paid on savings accounts soared above 10 per cent compared with rates today, when even the highest-paying savings accounts sit in the low single digits.But earning interest isn’t the only reason parents would want to help their children open a bank account of their own.Abouzaher said children can start to learn the basics of budgeting and saving for something down the road.Kids can be given a choice, he said, such as, “Do you want to spend it right now and buy whatever you want to buy … or do you want to save it and maybe look at something else in the longer run?”Parents should keep an eye on fees, just like they would with their own account, or else their children may learn an unwelcome lesson about having a bank account. While accounts for children often do not have a monthly fee, banks may charge for other services such as using a non-bank ATM, depending on where the account is opened.The amount of interest paid on savings accounts for children also varies by institution. According to rate-tracking website Ratehub.ca, youth accounts at Tangerine, the online bank owned by Scotiabank, pays the highest interest rate for young savers at 1.2 per cent compared with typically less than one per cent at the country’s big banks.At Tangerine, children hold their accounts jointly with a parent.If a parent is already a Tangerine customer they can open up an account for their child online by entering the information on the bank’s website, said Oliver Small, a senior manager at Tangerine.Small said you will need to have a social insurance number as well as one of several different pieces of ID to open the account such as a Canadian passport, a permanent resident identification or Secure Certificate of Indian Status.For children age 11 or under, parents may also use a birth certificate or a citizenship card or certificate.Small, who remembers his grandparents and parents teaching him early lessons of money management when he was a boy, said it is never too early to open an account.“Money management and financial literacy are really critical life skills and we know that if you instill good behaviours early on they can last a lifetime.”Companies in this story: (TSX:BMO, TSX:BNS)last_img read more

Twitter scraps Trump clip on Warner Bros complaint

first_imgLos Angeles: Twitter has deleted a video by US President Donald Trump for his 2020 election bid, that used unauthorised music from Warner Bros’ blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises”, after the studio complained to the social media platform. The microblogging site complied with Warner Bros’ demand to protect its copyright late Tuesday, hours after the US President tweeted a provocative campaign video, set to a track from the score of Christopher Nolan’s final movie in his massively successful Batman trilogy. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”The use of Warner Bros’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorised. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed,” Warner Bros told Deadline in a statement. The video in Trump’s tweet, captioned as “Make America Great Again”, has now been replaced by a message that it was no longer available “in response to a report by the copyright owner”. Scored by Hans Zimmer, the now removed video was set to the Oscar-winning music composer’s tune “Why Do We Fall?” from the 2012 film’s soundtrack. The roughly two-minute video juxtaposes brief shots of prominent Democrats from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer against images of Trump from his first two years in office, including his meetings with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Brazil’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro.
