By on

first_imgDerby manager Frank Lampard was left fuming at referee Keith Stroud for failing to award his side a “simple” penalty in their goalless draw against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.Tendayi Darikwa brought down Tom Lawrence in the box with a reckless challenge in the 19th minute, but Stroud refused to point to the spot, a decision that frustrated Lampard.“It was a well-fought game. The quality was slightly down from both teams but the effort was absolute and everyone gave everything,” Lampard told Sky Sports.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“The only person who I thought had a bad night was the referee, because he missed a blatant penalty that would have put us in the lead and changed a tight game.“I defend referees big time because I understand the pace of the game, but that was the most simple penalty you can give and he got it wrong.“It was never going to be an easy night for us where we opened them up. It’s a well done to both teams but it’s hard when there’s a penalty you should get but you don’t.”last_img read more

App to Ease Commutes to MacDill AFB

By on September 13, 2019

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority has launched a smartphone app that could shorten motorists’ lengthy commutes to MacDill Air Force Base and ease traffic congestion in South Tampa.The app provides near real-time data on travel times for primary and alternative routes onto the base, reported the Tampa Tribune. About 15,000 vehicles pass through the base’s four gates every day.The app, which is free to download and use, was designed for MacDill users to provide the wait time from a point almost two miles from the installation to each of its four gates, said authority spokeswoman Susan Chrzan.The authority developed the app as part of a larger study of morning traffic flows headed to MacDill intended to reduce wait times and ease congestion throughout surrounding neighborhoods, Chrzan said. The cost to develop and launch the custom MacDill gate traffic app was about $10,000, with the funds being reallocated from the ongoing traffic study.“The peak time queues back up from the gates into surrounding Tampa neighborhoods and add to congestion there due to school and commuter traffic,” said Chrzan.The study has produced one concrete recommendation — adding a right turn lane and other intersection improvements at the Tanker Way gate — that already has been approved. Tampa officials now are trying to identify a source to fund the project’s $300,000 cost, Vik Bhide, the city’s chief traffic management engineer, told the Tribune.MacDill officials are cooperating with the study and the app’s development, according to Capt. Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the 6th Air Mobility Wing.“This is a great example of the ongoing community partnerships we have here at MacDill,” Brown said.last_img read more
