Accra Hearts of Oak came from one goal to overcome a stubborn 10-man Bechem United to defend the MTN FA Cup they won last season at Baba Yara Stadium.

A 45th-minute goal from Emmanuel Avornyo opened the stalemate in a combative first half that saw both teams create decent chances.

The Phobians, however, stuck to their ‘never say die’ motto when they restored parity in extra time to finish the first half without a deficit.

Hearts created the first chance after two minutes, but Bechem United goalkeeper Abdulai Idrissu came off his line to intercept a dangerous ball in the box.

Bechem took control of the game within five minutes, bombarding Hearts of Oak’s vital area with a series of attacks, but failed to make the chances count.

The Phobians, however, had the best chance to go forward against the run of play in the 10th minute when Afriyie Barnie was released with a defensive pass, but he missed the glorious opportunity.

In the 16th minute, Accra Hearts of Oak called for a penalty after Barnie was knocked down in the box, but referee Abdul-Latif Adaari would have none of that as he waved play.

The Hunters took the lead on the brink of half-time as the Phobians defense were caught eyeing the ball.

It was a quick rise from midfield as Bechem moved from defense to attack with Augustine Okrah, Clinton Duodu and Avornyo combining beautifully during the onslaught.

An early goal attempt was saved by Richmond Ayi, but Avornyo was on hand to plant the rebound past the keeper.

Just when everyone thought the referee was about to end half-time, Caleb Amankwah sent the Phobian fans into a wild jubilation with a superb equalizer.

The defender connected a Samuel Inkoom inswinger in style, leaving both the Hunters backline and goalie in wonderland.

The second half resumed with both teams determined to annex the coveted trophy in front of an impressive home crowd.

The Phobians took the lead for the first time in the match thanks to Barnie who linked up a magnificent cross from Gladson Awako.

As the Hunters pressed for the equalizer, their top marksman, Augustine Okrah, took an early shower in the 64th after an altercation with assistant referee one, Stephen Balanguena.

The winger who was infuriated by a decision from the assistant referee headed him to the mouth, leaving referee Adaari no choice but to show him the exit.

Despite being shorthanded, Bechem United pushed for the equalizer as they threw more men up front.

Mohammed Alhassan nearly gave up a goal five minutes from time when he offered the ball to an opponent in the vital area only for the striker to miss the chance.

Hearts managed to hold on for the remaining minutes of the match, successfully defending the FA Cup for two consecutive seasons.

Avatar: The Last Airbender made huge strides in representation with the character of Toph Beifong, a young blind girl who took the word “empowerment” to a whole new level. Not ignoring his blindness nor reducing his character to anything more than this aspect of his experience, Avatar allowed for a rich and dynamic girl who became not only a welcome comic relief, but one of the strongest and most formidable fighters on the show.

Toph has grown as much as anyone over the course of The last air Master, and more in the comics that continued the story. His blindness served not only as a limitation, but also as an aspect of his uniqueness that allowed him to perform feats no one else could. But how far did Toph manage to exceed her limits?

RELATED: Netflix’s Avatar Live-Action Series Wraps Filming

When she was introduced in Season 2, Toph was already one of the most powerful earthbenders Gaang had ever encountered. Known as the Blind Bandit while defeating competitors in the Earth Rumble arena, Aang and his friends learned that Toph had developed a unique ability known as “seismic sense” which compensated for her lack of eyesight. By sensing the vibrations of the surrounding earth, Toph not only could “see” better than many sighted individuals, but she could even predict their movements. She later learned to perceive earth granularities in metal which allowed her to invent the art of metalbending.


Yet that did not mean Avatar dispensed with acknowledging the unique challenges Toph faced. Initially, Toph’s reliance on her seismic sense meant she was more easily surprised by aerial attacks. Although she could compensate to some degree with her hearing, her enemies periodically managed to surprise her with attacks that did not make contact with the ground. Master Yu and Xin Fu managed to surprise Toph with an ambush from above, and a Dai Li once managed to catch her with a rock gauntlet while fighting under Lake Laogai. But Toph’s limitations were the worst when she wasn’t on solid ground at all.


Most memorably during Gaang’s time in the Si Wong Desert in Book Two, Toph struggled to perceive individuals in the sandy terrain around her. Describing his perceptions as “fuzzy”, his own attacks proved difficult to aim and his mastery of the sand left something to be desired. Her limitations seemed even worse when she crossed an icy path in “The Serpent’s Pass”, where it was revealed not only that she was completely blind on icy ground, but that she could not swim if she had been. reversed.

RELATED: REPORT: Avatar: The Last Airbender Movies Get Tentative Release Windows


Yet Toph’s growth in stories beyond The last air Master suggest how far the earthbender has come beyond these limitations. Although she referenced her mastery of sandbending in the series finale, the comics portray Toph as relaxing much more comfortably on sandy ground in stories like Imbalance and the last beach wars. In North Southshe even ventures to Katara and Sokka at the South Pole where she mentions the blurring of her perceptions through her shoes on the icy terrain, but is still shown to be extremely capable of summoning the earth to compensate for these challenges.


The Toph which proceeded from the history of Avatar: The Last Airbender is growing steadily beyond the limits that initially held it back. Not completely renouncing these challenges, she instead devotes herself to the bitter task of overcoming them. At time The Legend of Korrashe even says that while in the Foggy Swamp, she can use the supernaturally connected terrains to perceive individuals across the globe.

The result is a character that stands out with an even richer texture than the already stunning portrayal first introduced in Book Two. Toph Beifong is perhaps the greatest earthbender of all time; though she was certainly a prodigy, Avatar does a stellar job of showing how she constantly works to maintain that title with each new installment in her story.

The WNBA-leading Las Vegas Aces had four long days to reflect on their historic slump at the Chicago Sky before hosting the Washington Mystics on Saturday in a chance for redemption.

Las Vegas led by 28 in its 104-95 loss to Chicago, making it the biggest comeback loss in WNBA history. The Aces dropped a franchise-record 41 points in the first quarter and shot 63% from the field in the first frame.

But it all came crashing down when the Sky went on a 59-25 run to take the lead late in the third quarter, and they didn’t give up. Chicago, the defending league champion, went on an 18-0 run in the third quarter, fueling the comeback.

The Aces (13-3) still hold the top spot in the Western Conference by 2½ games, but those types of losses can alter an entire season for a team.

Las Vegas head coach Becky Hammon is confident that this gruesome loss will have a positive effect on the future of the league’s best team.

“This one should hurt,” Hammon said. “They (the players) should lose sleep over it. I know I’m going to lose sleep over it. But eventually these things happen… I think it will end up being good for us in the long run.

Next on the schedule is Washington (11-9), which has lost two straight and three of its last four games. Since the season started 5-1, the Mystics have lost eight of 14 and are looking to turn things around.

Last time out, Washington was outplayed down the stretch in Seattle in an 85-71 loss to the Storm. The Mystics were just two points down in the fourth quarter, but Seattle finished the game on a 16-4 streak to secure the win.

Elena Delle Donne had a team-high 20 points in 29 minutes for the Mystics. She leads the team with an average of 15.3 this season.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Shohei Ohtani hit two three-run homers, including a dramatic game-tying tyer in the bottom of the ninth inning. He had a career-high eight points, the most by a Japanese-born player in major league history.

And somehow, that still wasn’t enough for his Los Angeles Angels to beat the Kansas City Royals.

Whit Merrifield started Round 11 with an RBI brace, and the Royals overcame Ohtani’s historic performance for a 12-11 win on Tuesday night.

Ohtani smashed a 423-foot homer in the sixth and an even shot from 438 feet in the ninth, giving him the biggest RBI game of his five-year United States career. The American League MVP then set the single-game record for RBIs by a Japanese-born player with a sacrificial fly in the 11th inning.

Although he never publicly complains, Ohtani would be perfectly justified in feeling frustrated with the lukewarm performance of his Los Angeles teammates behind his latest exploits. But the Royals knew they had won with their own standout moves, including scoring games for Carlos Santana and rookie Bobby Witt Jr.

“It’s one of the most fun games I’ve ever been in,” said Witt, who played his first game with multiple home runs while making a career-high four runs. “Just up and down there was a lot of energy. It was great. … Every time Ohtani or (Mike) Trout come on the plate, you hold your breath a little bit. It’s fun to watch -play them, and hopefully they don’t do as much damage as they did against us (tonight).”

Ohtani’s eighth RBI wasn’t enough as Merrifield and Kyle Isbel both drove in runs against Jose Quijada (0-2) earlier in the 11th.

Daniel Mengden took out Trout with two angels on base before Ohtani’s flyout, and he retired Jared Walsh on an endgame popup. Mengden made his first save of the season and second of his career as Kansas City held on to its fifth win in six games despite taking a five-point lead in sixth and a three-point lead in ninth.

“Just the energy and the fight, the way we kept hitting,” Kansas City manager Mike Matheny said. “We were taking one, and they kept coming back. That’s what I like to see. … You see a game like that, and that’s the one that starts repeating itself.”

Santana had four hits and a season-high five runs for the Royals, who beat Angels staff despite losing slugger Salvador Perez to a thumb injury in the third inning. Kansas City led 6-1 midway through the sixth before the Angels’ star hitters finally got going.

In addition to Ohtani’s excellence, Walsh doubled, tripled and homered while driving in two runs for the Angels. He fell just before his second cycle in 11 days.

“This one stings,” Angels interim manager Phil Nevin said. “This piece hurts in there. You feel like you’ve been in your reach many times and you’ve worked hard to get back there. We never quite took the lead, but a lot of great performances. We swung the bats well in some tough spots.”

Ohtani cut the Angels’ deficit to 6-4 when he drove his 14th homer to right center. Royals starter Jonathan Heasley had thrown a four-hitter in the sixth before Ohtani’s shot chased him.

Kansas City then led 10-7 coming in in the bottom of the ninth after Santana’s RBI single and Witt’s two-run homer, but Tyler Wade scored a single and Trout walked before Ohtani brought them home with an explosion undoubtedly on the right.

Dylan Coleman (2-1) blocked two Angels runners in the 10th.

Santana started his monster game with an RBI double and a two-run homer before adding RBI singles in the sixth and eighth. Witt homered in the first inning, added an RBI double against the wall in the seventh and hit a two-run homer in the ninth.

SHYCYCLE

Walsh had three more hits in four innings midway through the game but couldn’t get a hit on two more at-bats. He finished a shy single to tie his first career cycle on June 11 against the Mets.

HISTORICAL STORIES

Two Japanese players had previously contested seven points in a major league game. Tadahito Iguchi did it for the White Sox in 2006, and Hideki Matsui tied it for the Yankees in 2009.

NEVIN LANCE

Nevin was ejected on a pitching change in the seventh inning after a heated argument with the umpire team. Nevin was angry about a questionable call on Halos reliever Andrew Wantz earlier in the game.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Royals: Perez hurt his thumb while swinging but stayed in the game and ended his at-bat. The recipient said he will have an MRI scan on his left thumb on Wednesday and won’t be surprised if he misses a few days. “Hopefully it’s nothing wrong,” Perez said. “I just have to wait.”

NEXT

Ohtani (5-4, 3.28 ERA) is looking to string together three straight wins in the series finale against Kansas City’s Daniel Lynch (3-6, 5.19). Ohtani’s only start against Kansas City was back during his AL Rookie of the Year season in 2018.

Qantas is set to base a full-time aeronautical engineer in Broome to ease flight cancellations that are forcing locals to accommodate stranded passengers who cannot find accommodation.

Cancellations are hitting the Western Australian tourist hotspot at its busiest time of year, as accommodation prices soar and rooms are booked months in advance.

Qantas, which has experienced a series of cancellations at Broome International Airport over the past two months, said the disruptions were caused by “COVID-related staffing challenges” and “technical requirements”.

The airline confirmed to the ABC that it had sent a full-time engineer to operate flights at the city’s airport to resolve technical issues.

“We now have a full-time engineer based in Broome and [are] work to strengthen our local engineering capabilities to minimize the risk of cancellation,” a spokesperson said.

Permanent ‘de-manning’ behind the problems

Australian Association of Chartered Aeronautical Engineers (ALAEA) Federal Secretary Steve Purvinas said the move followed permanent staff reductions in the north west of the state.

He said two engineers based at Karratha Airport before the pandemic were regularly flown to airports in the northwest to service Qantas planes.

Mr Purvinas said that changed after the pandemic, with the airline removing a flight engineer from Karratha airport which served many communities in the Pilbara region.

“It was not a one-time COVID event. It was a permanent dismantling of this port,” he said.

“The [engineering] the problems that happened in Broome this year were not because someone was sick with COVID.

“Broome was not inhabited [by a full-time engineer] for 20 years.”

He said the airline had now ‘launched a type of QantasLink permanently in Broome which we believe is a better option’.

“The measures are positive, but they cannot undo the delays passengers have experienced so far,” Purvinas said.

Residents affected by cancellations

Broome residents and shopkeepers were frustrated by flight cancellations, which they said had left town to deal with the consequences.

OMAHA, Neb. –Arkansas ace Connor Noland threw a gem to keep the Stanford roster at bay and advance the Hogs into the winning bracket on Monday with a 17-2 win at Charles Schwab Field.

Noland allowed just two runs in the game and went 7 2/3 innings to save arms from the bullpen.

The Hogs had five runs in the fifth — three on a Chris Lanzilli home run on his birthday — three runs in the seventh, two runs in the eighth and six runs in the ninth. All nine Arkansas starters had at least two hits in the game.

Here’s a rundown of how the rest of things went:

Top 1st: Arkansas 1, Stanford 0

Braydon Webb smashed the first pitch to right center field for a triple. Brady Slavens hit a sack fly to left field to bring Webb home.

After a steal from Cayden Wallace, Michael Turner hit a two-out single to left field. Chris Lanzilli was hit with a hand pitch to give the Hogs two runners. Robert Moore drew a walk to charge the bases for Jalen Battles, who watched the strike three to finish the frame.

Last 1st: Arkansas 1, Stanford 1

Brock Jones led the inning with a solo homer into the bullpen in left field. After a Carter Graham lift, Brett Barrera singled to shortstop. Braden Montgomery slipped a single down the middle to give the Cardinal a pair of base runners.

The runners were obliterated when Kody Huff threw a 6-4-3 double play.

Chelsea still need to clear a ‘significant hurdle’ in transfer talks with Inter Milan before Romelu Lukaku is loaned to the Italian side this summer.

According to The Athletic, talks are ongoing over a transfer that would see Lukaku leave Chelsea and join Inter Milan just a year after leaving them.

It is explained that the Serie A club are ready to pay the 29-year-old’s full salary as part of a loan deal. An improved offer is therefore expected after the rejection of a first approach by the Blues.

The report explains that the financial part of the loan transfer should not be a problem, with the general feeling that an agreement can be reached between all parties.

The Athletic article, however, mentions a potential banana peel.

BASEL TO NEWCASTLE? ! | Newcastle United 22/23 POTENTIAL XI WITH NEW TRANSFERS

It has been claimed that Chelsea have a “significant hurdle” when it comes to players moving in the opposite direction. Thomas Tuchel’s side will be in desperate need of a new No.9 next season if he sells Belgian leader Lukaku during this window.

Chelsea’s links with Inter players have already been frequent this summer, so hopefully there will be deals struck to help both. For example, the Blues are said to be interested in Inter quartet Lautaro Martinez, Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni and Denzel Dumfries.

Lukaku at Inter Milan

This latest report certainly seems to suggest that Inter will make a counter offer and request a loan to re-sign Lukaku.

The striker had a disappointing 2021/22 campaign at Stamford Bridge so to draw a line under and start again at a familiar home at the San Siro seems best for the player.

However, Chelsea need to make sure he takes care of themselves.

It’s getting to a point where teams around the Blues are making some impressive signings, so fans are getting a little worried.

They need to use Lukaku’s leverage with Inter to potentially attract some of their players, especially the talented defenders linked with a move to London. It feels like there must be a solid plan for the centre-forward position if Lukaku goes there too.

att Hancock revealed he was so worried his dyslexia was preventing him from reading the autocue during Covid press briefings that he asked for help with the tricky words.

Professor Sir Jonathan Van Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer during the pandemic and known as JVT, spent half an hour helping the then health secretary learn to read the word ” dexamethasone” before a televised press conference.

Now the politician is raising awareness of how dyslexia affects people on a daily basis as the first reading of his private member’s bill, which calls for universal screening for dyslexia in children, takes place in parliament on Tuesday.

Mr Hancock’s dyslexia was identified when he was at university and he was taught a technique of reading words by seeing them as pictures, but he explained that unfamiliar words can still confuse him.

He said he asked for help with the word ‘dexamethasone’, a steroid used to treat Covid, from JVT.

“Before, I would have done everything I could to avoid the word,” he said.

“I had probably the best person in the world to teach me, but I’m not sure that was the best use of time. JVT spent half an hour one afternoon teaching me how to say the word dexamethasone and put it in my head. And now it’s an image that translates into my head.

Mr Hancock said he was not ashamed to ask for help as he would have been before going public with his dyslexia.

He added: “It was a moment of slight relief in quite a difficult time. I always had a joyful outlook on the whole thing, especially once it was identified.

Now he has called for all children to be tested for dyslexia and more training for teachers.

He said: “The reason I want the universal approach is that the good schools are already doing it. The number of people in private schools who get an assessment is much, much higher than the number of people in public schools and that is another injustice.

“I still get examples given to me right now in 2022 of teachers telling children with dyslexia that they are just not suitable for education.”

Speaking about his own childhood, he told The Standard he felt like he was “just word rubbish” and found reading intimidating.

Dyslexia still affects his professional life, he said, and he finds it easier to speak spontaneously than to read speeches.

But Mr Hancock said he now uses a dictation app which translates his speech into written words.

“Technology has made things radically easier for dyslexics,” he said.

In addition, he campaigns for prison managers to be held accountable for improving inmate literacy and for companies to reduce the hurdles dyslexic people have to overcome to get hired – saying it is outdated to throwing a CV in the trash because of a typo.

For the past few days I’ve been trying to figure out when I started to feel incomplete. I don’t want to say that I feel useless, but when did I start to feel unable to accomplish anything? This may sound a bit sketchy, but there is a relationship between sarcoidosis and apathy.

I think the seed was planted when I suffered my first spontaneous pneumothorax (collapsed lung), and this plant was grown after my second. I remember after each event, I felt like I was going to be different (and not in a good way). It was true: I am different, in fact very different, from what I was.

After spending weeks and months in the hospital, the plant began to grow and spread. And the more the plant grew and spread, the less I wanted to do. As the plant bloomed more and more of me started checking. I was becoming what I didn’t want to become: a solitary ram among a flock of sheep.

recommended reading

Over the past few years, I have missed many things that could have contributed to my recovery and my sense of worth. I don’t know anyone else, but when you’re living with a chronic illness, it’s easy to be consumed by thoughts of finality. Should have, could have, could have become the intrusive lexicon you live in.

And here we are.

Now we have to put some pieces back together to get that sense of self worth back. Easier said than done.

I’ve recently had several doctor’s appointments and for the most part all went well with various follow-up tests and consultations. During one of my visits, I was introduced to a doctor with whom I sympathized. We had a great visit together and I felt good about meeting him. During the visit, however, I learned that he was leaving the team assigned to me.

I was a little taken aback, but life passes. I wished him luck in his future endeavours, and thanked him for being a great support person for me.

A few days ago I received a letter in the mail from a pulmonologist on my team. Yeah, you guessed it – he leaves too. I had a great relationship with this doctor for a few years, so needless to say the news was more than a shock.

My wife could tell something was bothering me, so I broke the news to her. Like me, she expressed her concerns, but we both felt comfortable continuing to work with the rest of my medical team. I’ve been with them for over 10 years, so it wouldn’t make sense to start over and find someone else who can tolerate my nonsense.

I started to think about all this shuffling and movement around me. What am I not doing? How come I’m not moving? After thinking about it, I concluded that I was the reason why I am not moving forward in life. I feel like I’m asking for permission to move on.

Before developing my health issues, I never questioned whether I was good enough to accomplish anything. Since my health problems, I wonder if I am good enough to still achieve certain goals.

It all comes down to doing something. You have to do something. You have to keep moving.

The reality is that as long as I’m doing something productive, I’m doing everything I can to be productive. Whether it’s working in a job I love or pursuing dreams of personal fulfillment, as long as I produce something, I achieve something. This is called a sense of value.

When you think about it, asking your permission is actually challenging your abilities. Accept the challenge from the start and the results might impress you.

NAT Fyfe was the draw card but it was Andrew Brayshaw who ended up being the hero as Fremantle overcame a plucky Hawthorn to claim a 13-point AFL victory at Optus Stadium.

Brayshaw had 37 eliminations, seven tackles, and he scored the game-sealing goal five minutes from time to help the Dockers to a 14.11 (95)-12.10 (82) victory on Saturday.

Fyfe started in midfield in his first AFL game for over 10 months, but he also made important forward stints.

Two-time medalist Brownlow finished with 21 eliminations, five clearances and 1.2 in a promising display.

Brennan Cox, Hayden Young and Luke Ryan combined for 32 points in defense as the Dockers improved their record to 10-3 to climb to the top of the standings with Melbourne.

Jaeger O’Meara finished with a team-best 30 eliminations and nine clearances for the Hawks, while James Sicily (nine points) was a rock on defense.

Dockers defender Blake Acres was in tears on the bench after appearing to tear his right hamstring in the final quarter.

Hawthorn’s Sam Frost, who played as a forward, was also substituted last season due to a knee injury.

The Dockers scored the first two goals of the game, but Hawthorn worked their way through the competition and made the most of their chances on offense.

The Hawks had four set pieces from long range to go with Chad Wingard’s final major from close range to take a three-point lead in the quarter.

Fyfe had the chance to produce a memorable moment late in the second quarter when he got the ball back in the pocket, but his dribble shot was never on track and crossed for a behind.

Hawthorn’s 10-point half-time lead was set up by their 32-21 advantage within 50 seconds, with their half-time pressure proving crucial.

Griffin Logue’s effort to stage a fight up front netted a pair of Dockers goaltender Michael Walters early in the third quarter.

Fyfe bounced back later in the season, sending the crowd of 39,428 into a frenzy when he took a strong contested lead.

Although his shot went just wide, he scored his first goal of the game a minute later with a volley from the goal line.

Fremantle turned home with a practical advantage of 14 points, but the margin was just six when Luke Breust netted his second goal of the game with six minutes remaining.

Brayshaw stood tall when his team needed him most, sending a ball five yards while holding his opponent back.

The match was set to test whether Fremantle could overcome its wet weather demons, but the rain stayed away and the contest was played in relatively dry conditions.
