Liverpool have put all contract talks and recruitment plans on hold amid the coronavirus crisis Read Also: Klopp tells pals Liverpool will be last club job Similar sentiments apply to negotiating deals with any members of the current playing staff. Liverpool completed a raft of contract extensions over the last 12 months, including new deals for Klopp and James Milner in December, but a pressing issue has been the future of Gini Wijnaldum. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Liverpool have put all contract talks and recruitment plans on hold due to the ongoing uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic.

Veteran former Barcelona and Inter Milan frontman Samuel Eto’o, who is out of contract after leaving Chelsea at the end of last season, is the latest name to have been linked with Anfield. Rodgers told the club’s website, www.liverpoolfc.com: “We would still like to do some business. “Across the board we still want to add a little bit more depth to what we have.” Liverpool have already signed international strikers Rickie Lambert and Divock Origi this summer, although the latter has been loaned back to former club Lille. Adam Lallana, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic have arrived to bolster the midfield options while defenders Dejan Lovren and Javier Manquillo have also been added to the squad. Liverpool completed their pre-season programme with a 4-0 win over Borussia Dortmund at Anfield on Sunday. They open their Barclays Premier League campaign at home to Southampton – the club from which they signed Lambert, Lallana and Lovren – on Sunday. Rodgers has already made a number of signings but is still thought to want another forward following the £75million sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. The Reds were close to landing France striker Loic Remy from QPR last month but a deal collapsed at the medical. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers remains keen to add to his squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month. Press Association
Regular rider Pat Smullen is also suspended. Angus Gold, the owner’s racing manager, said: “He’s not going to run this weekend. “He missed a bit of work last week and while I saw him this morning and he worked very well, Pat Smullen said that he didn’t really feel in love with the soft ground when he won the other day. “There is water everywhere around the Curragh at the moment and while it should be dry tomorrow, there is more rain forecast and the ground is already heavy at Leopardstown. “Having missed a piece of work and then running on bad ground, he may subject himself to a harder race than ideal just three weeks before the Derby. “He’s still in the Irish Guineas, which is an option, but we could just decide to take him for a bit of work somewhere 10 days beforehand and then a decision will be made if Epsom is the direction we go in. “We don’t want to risk leaving his season behind this weekend, he has a long year ahead of him, hopefully, and we want him bouncing into his races. “If we give him time, I’m sure that will happen.” The Dermot Weld-trained colt is as low as 6-1 for the Investec Derby on June 6 and was expected to put the finishing touches to his preparation this weekend. However, a combination of likely heavy ground at Leopardstown and the fact the Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned three-year-old missed a piece of work last week means connections have decided to give the noted trial a miss.

Photo by Jonathan Wong | Daily TrojanWhat started off as a series of late-night cross-disciplinary talks between seniors Sophie Wix and Lindsey Beach became a week-long symposium for student entrepreneurs and industry leaders — and now, USC’s first-ever Innovation Week is taking place this week.The four-day event, which started Monday, will showcase student projects and business ventures that address pressing themes, from health to sustainability.“It’s not about the ‘what’ or the ‘how’ as much as the ‘why,’” said Wix, the president and co-founder of Innovation Week. “The ‘why’ drives you at the end of the day. You have to be willing to make sacrifices. Use this time to really understand what your passion is and dig deep into that, because when times get tough, what you really care about is going to pull you through.”Over the summer, Wix, who is studying health and human sciences, and Beach, who is studying business administration, worked with co-founders Luke McGartland, a senior majoring in arts, technology, and the business of innovation, and Kabir Sagoo, a USC alumnus who studied neuroscience, entrepreneurship and international relations, to make Innovation Week a reality. “It’s all about handing it back to the students and saying here’s a space for you to network and to share ideas and to really organically connect across disciplines,” Wix said.Each day addresses a grand challenge with student, faculty and alumni panelists. Human health, e-currency technology and sustainability were selected as the year’s most pressing concerns. The event has been featured on the website for InnovateLA, a two-week gathering in November for innovators and entrepreneurs.On Monday, the first night of Innovation Week, the focus was on human health. At a panel discussion in Fertitta Hall, Marshall alumnus and Health-Ade Kombucha co-founder Vanessa Dew described her commitment to the process of crafting authentic kombucha. She said she founded her business to emphasize quality and customer satisfaction, using fresh, organic, local ingredients. Since selling its first bottles in 2012, Health-Ade Kombucha has expanded sales to all 50 states and opened a brewery in Torrance, Calif. Human Health Night also featured Sara Ma, a senior majoring in arts, technology and the business of innovation and a researcher and designer for CancerBase. CancerBase was founded by scientists Jan Liphardt at Stanford and Peter Kuhn at USC, according to its website.The platform allows cancer patients to contribute to an online database to improve cancer research. Patients can also connect with each other through CancerBase, pursue different treatment options and learn how to improve their quality of life. Ma spoke on the importance of giving personal help to those living with cancer. By enhancing the conversations patients can have with their doctors and caretakers, CancerBase helps patients manage their lives and treatment, she said. Ma developed the brand and logo for CancerBase and contributed to former Vice President Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Summit in 2016.“We love the process of innovation,” Ma said. “If you love the process and the people [who] you’re working with, the process of solving problems, you’ll be able to stay in the game and focus your attention on solving a problem.”Ethan Bresnick, a freshman majoring in media arts and practice, spoke about his work with developing Augmedix, which is powered by Google Glass. In high school, he joined Augmedix as the fifth founding member, serving as the creative director. This health care application helps doctors maximize their time with their patients, quickly pulling up records so that they are able to assist their patients. Augmedix has partnered with Sutter Health and Dignity Health.On Wednesday, Blockchain Night will promote the new technology that gained popularity with the digital currency Bitcoin. Student innovators and industry leaders will discuss the future of blockchain in entrepreneurship, and USC Marshall professor James Healey will moderate a panel with experts in the innovative technology. On Thursday, Sustainability Night will showcase leaders in technology for social change.Innovation Week will end with a two-hour Impact Night on Friday. Brian Shepard, assistant dean of the Iovine and Young Academy, will lead the discussion with panelists Amanda Daflos, the director of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Innovation Team; Albert Lawrence, correspondent on The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation and Robbie Cabral, founder of padlock company Benjilock.Beyond USC, Wix and her co-founders hope to spread Innovation Week to other universities worldwide. The London School of Economics will host its first Innovation Week next semester, and the founders of Innovation Week at USC are in talks with student leaders at some East Coast universities.
