Mail Online 18 Feb 2013A council is planning to replace traditional male and female lavatories with ‘gender neutral’ toilets in an attempt to facilitate the transgender community.The facilities will avoid using the words ‘men’ and ‘ladies’, instead using symbols that indicate they can be used by people of any sex.But the plans to change signage on the toilets, which will be used by both adults and children, have attracted criticism and been described as ‘political correctness’.Brighton and Hove city council chiefs said that they wished to ‘promote the term gender neutral’ in emails discussing the proposed block on Rottingdean seafront, East Sussex.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2280331/Brighton-Council-open-gender-neutral-public-toilets-phases-male-female-lavatories.html

RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Michael Owen has thrown his support behind Manchester United’s decision to extend Odion Ighalo’s loan deal and believes the striker has proven his doubters wrong at Old Trafford.Eyebrows were raised when United wrapped up a temporary agreement with Shanghai Greenland Shenhua for Ighalo in January but the 30-year-old seized his opportunity with both hands, racking up four goals and an assist in his opening eight appearances. The break in football caused by the coronavirus crisis put Ighalo’s future in serious doubt as it meant the Nigerian’s contract came to an end with nine Premier League matches remaining of the season.But the Red Devils ended the uncertainty last week as Ighalo, a lifelong fan of the club, put pen to paper on a six-month extension.“I like him, I like him a lot,” former United and England forward Owen said on Premier League Productions.“I know people turn their nose up at him because he’s come from Chinese football or because he’s on loan, he’s not a sexy £60 million player or whatever.“But I tell you what, I like him. “He’s maybe not the full-time No.9 for Manchester United permanently but when you’ve got [Anthony] Martial, when you’ve got Ighalo, when you’ve got [Marcus] Rashford, all of a sudden you’ve got a bit of pace, a bit of pace, a bit of guile.”Asked whether Ighalo could be United’s answer to Divock Origi, Owen replied: “Yeah, but even more of a role I’d say, Ighalo.“I think he’s another level up, to be honest.“I think he would get more game-time for Manchester United than Origi would at Liverpool in the future.“I like him and I think it’s a good move to extend his contract.” Tags: Manchester UnitedMichael OwenOdion Ighalo
Everton midfielder Darron Gibson is likely to require surgery at the end of the season to fix a troublesome thigh problem, according to manager David Moyes. The 25-year-old missed nearly three months from September with the injury and he sat out almost all January and although he has returned to the starting line-up on a regular basis he is still hampered. Gibson scored from long-range in Saturday’s 2-0 win over QPR and Moyes would like to see him do it more frequently but believes it is not possible currently. “After the game on Saturday, I was asked about Darron Gibson’s goal and his shot – I think he could do it more and with more ferocity as well because he’s got a great shot on him,” said the Scot. “He has got a bit of a problem at the top of his thigh which will probably require an operation at the end of the season.” Despite not being 100 per cent Gibson has added a different dimension to Everton’s midfield with his vision and distribution. “What he has given us is that he is good on the ball and he has a better range of passing than maybe some of the other midfielders we have,” added Moyes. “I think overall he has had an impact. He had a bit of a dip midway through after he came back from his injury but his form is good right now.” Press Association
Redknapp, 67, stepped down last week after citing the need for knee surgery as a reason why he could not continue at the Loftus Road helm – with the R’s currently sitting 19th in the Premier League. Chris Ramsey has been filling the void on a caretaker basis, with former Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood the heavy favourite for the position – although Fernandes’ comment on Twitter seemed to distance the club from the 46-year-old. “Think I have got my dream manager. Not what anyone thinks. Take a while. Still a bit to go but I’m very happy. Press all wrong,” he wrote. Redknapp had guided QPR back into the top flight through the Championship play-offs last season having been unable to keep them in the top flight after taking over in 2012. But, having lost all 11 of their Premier League away games, he left his position just a day after the transfer window closed having missed out on making any last-minute recruits to help in the battle against relegation. It had been anticipated that Sherwood was the only serious contender for the role, having previously worked with Ramsey and QPR director of football Les Ferdinand at White Hart Lane. But, with Ramsey in charge of first-team affairs at Sunderland on Tuesday evening, Fernandes seems set to surprise everyone with his upcoming appointment. Press Association QPR appear close to appointing Harry Redknapp’s successor after chairman Tony Fernandes suggested he has landed his “dream manager”.
TYSON Fury’s achievements, both inside and outside the ring, put him in the same bracket as thegreat Muhammad Ali, according to trainer Ben Davison.Earlier this year, Fury outclassed Deontay Wilder in their Las Vegas rematch to become the new WBC world heavyweight champion.It marked the culmination of a stunning turnaround for Fury, who dethroned the great Wladimir Klitschkoto win the WBA, WBO and IBF belts back in November 2015.Following that sensational triumph, Fury spent two and a half years away from the sport, during whichtime he battled well-documented issues with his mental health.Davison used to work with Fury and says the way he has fought through his problems will leave a lasting legacy.He told talkSPORT: “Tyson has gone away and he has beaten Wladimir Klitschko while he was onhis dominant run – away.“He then went and beat Wilder, he then went and dominated and stopped Wilder the second time.“I know some people will say Tyson didn’t win that first fight, difference of opinions whatever, that is myopinion.“And he went away and stopped Wilder and I don’t think there is anybody that has got a resume close toTyson Fury’s.“I had a good chat with Tyson [on Saturday] just to say to him: ‘Look, for what he has achieved inthe ring, you have got to think about what he has achieved outside of the ring’.“He has inspired thousands of people along the way and people won’t like comparing him – while he iscurrent – to the likes of Muhammad Ali.“Tyson Fury will be spoken about for many, many, many years to come – and probably in eraswhen we are long gone.”(Omnisport)
Not content with this, F-M continued its regular attacks, and in the 24th minute Hartzheim, gathering the ball at the point amid another sustained push, crushed a hard left-footed shot past a diving Cartier and inside the right post.Even when Hannah Johnson replaced Cartier in goal, F-M was relentless. In the 35th minute, it was eighth-grader Morgan Goodman finding the net, poking in the rebound of a Lauren Farrella shot that Johnson could not gather in.Behind all this was a superb effort from the Hornets’ defense, with freshman Alora Miller leading that effort as she tracked B’ville’s Simone Neivel throughout the night and rarely gave her space to produce.Elsewhere on the back line, senior captains Laura Bonomo and Haley Ingram, helped by sophomore Ryann Dauksza, kept the rest of the Bees, especially top goal-scorer Hannah Mimas, never allowing them anything more than long-range shots that Sydney Mahr handled until Neivel scored with less than two minutes left.F-M had another challenge on Thursday when it visited West Genesee, a team it only beat 2-1 earlier this season. And it was close in the rematch, too, but again the Hornets prevailed, this time 1-0.Keeping the ball in WG’s end throughout the first half, F-M’s pressure paid off when a Wildcats turnover led to Clark putting in a goal in the 31st minute.From there, the Hornets could not add to that margin, thwarted by an effective WG defense that did its best defending set pieces. But the Wildcats were rarely able to sustain an attack and, whenever it did pressure late, F-M turned them back.Meanwhile, the F-M boys soccer team, up to no. 10 in the latest state Class AA rankings after its weather-shortened 2-2 draw with Baldwinsville on Oct. 1, ripped past Corcoran 8-1 last Tuesday night.Six first-half goals set the tone, Cheech Pagano ultimately finding the net four times as Ziad Abdul-Malak got three assists. Riley Warren-Nichols, Nino Pagano, Ryan Pollard and Tyler Goodman earned one goal apiece and goalie Chris Szidat got credit for an assist, along with Corey Gallagher.Now visiting the Gillette Road complex to face Cicero-North Syracuse on Thursday, F-M broke out again and bashed the Northstars 6-1, this time with Abdul-Malak earning the three-goal hat trick, plus an assist. Cheech Pagano added two goals, with Pollard also converting as Goodman and Nino Pagano both earned assists.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story So in the week leading up to the rematch with the Bees, plenty of time was spent working on those set pieces, but as it turned out all of the Hornets’ scoring plays took place during the normal flow of play.F-M had even more reason to be aggressive because B’ville was without its top goalkeeper, Jenna Boutilier. Sophomore Isabella Cartier replaced Boutilier, and the Hornets immediately tested her.Just 3:57 into the game, Anna Hartzheim sent a pass toward the net, where Hannah Knych’s low shot slipped past the goal line. Less than four minutes later, it was 2-0, Chloe Hodge’s pass hitting Lauren Clark in full stride and Clark ripping a low shot that Cartier could not stop. With aggression and purpose, the Fayetteville-Manlius girls soccer team only needed one half to get even for its lone defeat of the season – or, to put it more accurately, it took less than 35 minutes.That was the span where the Hornets jumped all over the Bees Monday night, netting four unanswered goals and cruising from there to a 4-1 victory which provided a big boost to F-M’s hopes of repeating as Section III Class AA champions.When these teams first met Sept. 17 at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, the Hornets lost 2-0, surrendering both goals late in regulation, but felt that it had given away plenty of opportunities in the game’s middle stages, unable to convert on several set pieces.

Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has shot down claims that Ghana’s players have requested for Maxwell Konadu to remain in charge as Black Stars coach till after the Cup of Nations.There have been suggestions that players of the national team have told the GFA they would rather have the former Asante Kotoko boss in charge and reportedly requested the GFA to hold on with the appointment of Avram Grant.But Badu who captained Ghana to a 3-1 win over Togo on Wednesday to seal a place at the 2015 Nations Cup says that is news to him.“I am hearing this for the first time,” he said. “It is the management and GFA who make decisions and if they say Max should do it we will be 100 per cent behind him. We have not met to discuss anything like that after the Uganda game.”The GFA has said it is close to reaching a deal with former Chelsea boss Avram Grant to put him in charge of the national team with the Nations Cup due to be his first assignment.Qualification was made possible by a strong opening half in Tamale with Mubarak Wakaso and Majeed Waris the assassins in chief for the Black Stars before Badu weighed in with his contribution as his deflected effort won the game 3-1 for Ghana. “The two quick goals really helped us and they were quality goals too,” Badu said. ”We ceded the midfield to them at the start of the second half but once we took control again we made this comfortable. After losing in Uganda this was the perfect response from the team.”Badu’s one worry from the game in Tamale was the fact that Ghana conceded again from a set piece. “Every time we have let in a goal, it has come from a set piece. That is something we need to work on in training,” he said.
