Premier League Match Time: Wolves Vs Bolton

It’s Premier League match time with Wolverhampton Wanderers set to host Bolton Wanderers at Molineux.

Wolves, currently in 19th place, will look to move away from the relegation mine with a win against Bolton who are in sixth position; though a solitary win is unlikely to help, it will be a start.

The Wanderers have had good matches in terms of performance but the results have eluded them. In particular, they had excellent showings against Manchester United and Arsenal but ended losing both games.

Fresh injury concerns to three players resulted from the game against the Gunners that Mick McCarthy’s side lost 2-0. Dave Edwards in midfield sustained a thigh muscle injury and limped off the ground within eight minutes of the start.

Stephen Ward in the back-line was another casualty after an onfield clash with Fabregas. Wolves will also be without Kevin Doyle’s striking ability after the forward sustained a broken bone in his hand.  Ronald Zuber with an ankle injury and Joey Craddock with a hip problem continue to be sidelined. Guidioura with a leg injury,  Craddock with a thigh problem, Kightly with a knee injury are also sidelined.

Owen Coyle’s charges have excelled in their last two Premiership outings against Tottenham and Everton. While they could beat Spurs, they had to be content with a draw against the Toffees, a match they could have won but for an equalizer late in the game by Beckford.

Gretar Steinsson will miss out against Wolves on Saturday after a yellow card awarded in the Everton game. Ricketts is likely to replace him while Klasnic could be considered for a start on the back of his goal against the Toffees, playing as a substitute. Klasnic could replace Elmander who is down with a  virus. Injury concerns for the Trotters include Davis and J O’Brien with knee injuries, Gardner with a thigh problem and Samuel with a calf injury.

In their last eight games Bolton have tasted defeat just once but the Trotters will be concerned about their vulnerability in defence, as they have conceded goals in all their twelve matches, a weakness that the likes of Jarvis in the Wolves squad will be keen to exploit.

Wolves had the following players in their starting eleven against Arsenal on Wednesday: Hahnemann, Foley, Stearman, Berra, Ward, Edwards, Mancienne, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis and Doyle; Hunt, Ebanks-Blake and Fletcher came in as substitutes.

Bolton’s starting eleven in the game against Everton comprised: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Knight, Cahill, Robinson, Lee, Muamba, Holden, Taylor, Davies and Elmander;  Ricketts and Klasnic were used as substitutes.

John Mervin: Risingsun, Ohio Pioneer

JOHN MERVIN, one of the early settlers at the site of the present town of Risingsun, is a highly respected resident of that place. Like many of the prosperous and influential men of the day, he has made his way to success through adverse circumstances, and his well-won competence determined credit upon him.

He is of English birth, having entered upon his mortal career in Leicestershire, January 11, 1824. His father, Thomas Mervin, was a butcher by trade. Our subject was reared upon a farm, near a small village, enjoying only the limited advantages of the common schools. He showed ability in the management and care of horses, and at an early age found employment in that work; but the opportunities for advancement seemed to him discouraging, and he determined to come to America. Leaving his young wife, formerly Miss Elizabeth Riley, he sailed from Liverpool, in April, 1849, in the ship "Joseph Badger," and after a voyage of four weeks landed in New York. The trip to Albany was made by river, from Albany to Buffalo by rail, and from Buffalo he came by lake to Sandusky, where he took the Mad River railroad, then the only one in this region. His destination was Avon township, Lorain county, but by mistake he went to New Haven, Huron county. On learning his error he started on foot for Lorain county, but while en route he was taken very ill in Greenfield township, Huron county, and was cared for by some friendly English people. On his recovery he had but fifty cents left of the sum which he had saved from his earnings for his journey, and a new start in life. This money was spent for wine to stimulate his impaired energies, and instead of going on, he decided to remain there and rent a farm.

In the spring of 1850 his wife rejoined him. She had a difficult voyage, spending four months on the way, and being shipwrecked three times. They lived there for several years, renting different farms in the locality, but in the fall of 1863 they came to Wood county, driving through in a wagon. Mr. Mervin purchased sixty acres of land in Section 36, Montgomery township, where the village of Risingsun now stands. At that time the land was partially improved in the dry portion and a plank house stood near his present home. The swamply part of the farm had to be cleared, however, and there was no small amount of hard work to be done in the first years of his stay; but the rapid development of the locality brought prosperity. He still owns severnty acres of land in the vicinity, and also has ten acres in Jackson township, Seneca county. In 1877 he built a fine residence in Risingsun, which he has since occupied. Mrs. Mervin's death, December 9, 1888, brought deep sorrow to this pleasant home. her remains are interred in Trinity cemetery, Scott township, Sandusky county. They had nine children, all of whom are living: Sarah, Mrs. George Young, of Seneca county; Mary, Mrs. Adam Graber, of Risingsun; George, a farmer in Perry township; Elizabeth, Mrs. Frank Blonde, of Perry township; Eliza and Lucy, who are at home; Frances, Mrs. Benjamin Bates, of Risingsun; Anna, Mrs. Courtland Essex, of the same town, and Hattie, Mrs. Russell Hoover [my great grandmother], of Montgomery township.

Mr. Mervin's parents came to the United States in 1855 or '56, and located in Greenwich township, Huron county, where his father died at the age of seventy-three years. His mother afterward made her home in Wood county with her children, but died in Richland county at ninety years of age. Mr. Mervin is the eldest of six children, all living. Thomas resides in Risingsun; George, in Longley; Elizabeth is the widow of James Brinson, of Huron county; Hannah married John Thompson, of Richland county, and Emma married first the late John Jenney, and second John Winder, of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mr. Mervin possessed in youth a powerful physique, and is still well-preserved, his strictly temperate habits being in his favor. Fond of reading, he has intelligent views on the questions of the time, and his interest in the education of the rising generation has led to several years of able service as school director. In Principle he is a Democrat, but is not bound by partisan ties in the choice of suitable men for local offices. He is a leading member of the ME Church.

Authenticity and Exceptional Performance: The Story of Rowland Hill

In 1830 the world’s first inter-city passenger railway started in England, operating between Liverpool and Manchester. It signaled the advance of the new technology that would power the industrial economies of the nineteenth century. However, achieving significant change takes time. Letters would continue to be carried by horse-drawn Mail Coaches for many years, and the fee was usually paid by the recipient. It was an expensive service, and people could refuse to receive the mail. It required an outsider, Rowland Hill, to achieve change.

Rowland Hill (1795-1879) was a teacher and social reformer. He took the initiative in addressing the shortcomings of the old postal system. He proposed a new approach, which required a prepaid adhesive stamp that could be fixed to the letter. His suggestions were initially rejected, but he published a pamphlet to promote his ideas. Today, it could be a social media campaign. In Post Office Reform: Its Importance and Practicability, Volume 1 (1837) Hill notes in the Preface: It should be remembered, that in few departments have important reforms been affected by those trained up in practical familiarity with their details. The men to detect blemishes and defects are among those who have not, by long familiarity, been made insensible to them.

The report called for low and uniform rates according to weight, rather than distance. Opposition to Hill’s ideas was deep-rooted. The Postmaster denounced Hill’s «wild and visionary schemes.» The Secretary to the Post Office, said «this plan appears to be a preposterous one, utterly unsupported by facts and resting entirely on assumption». Looking back, we can see that this reflected ‘FELT Thinking’ and the #FELTDeficit characterized by an inability to shift mindset.

Hill saw that reform would enable poorer people to exchange letters and this would help finance the system. The appendix to his proposal highlighted two significant points:

* That cheap communication by post would afford highly important facilities to the collection and diffusion of information, and thus greatly accelerate the education of the people.

* That the present rates of postage, so far from the forwarding these facilities, constitute a serious tax on literature, creating obstacles, or involving expenses, in almost every stage of the progress of a literary work.

Hill’s proposals made sense to people in business. There was authenticity and integrity in his approach, which shaped by shared value.

His achievement is worth noting because it demonstrates the importance of positive, proactive behavior. He totally changed the Rules of the Game relating to postal systems. His story also demonstrates that perseverance is required to change outdated ideas anchored in old assumptions. It requires more energy to do something new, and there will always be vested interests supporting the status quo. However, Hill recognized that by reducing cost, it would be possible to increase volume and profitability, and this would then transform the underlying business model. The first adhesive, Penny Black stamp was issued 1 May 1840. His contribution was recognized in 1860 when he was knighted and became Sir Rowland Hill.

Kickers Are Weird

I was a sports broadcaster for 35 years, mostly covering the National Football League. I learned a lot of things in that time, but one thing stands out, and I’m going to share it with you now:

Kickers are weird

Go back and read it again, several times.

I put it in big type for a reason. It’s true! And you have to understand it. Kickers are very, very weird people.

Whole generations of NFL fans have grown up not knowing what a «straight-on» kicker looks like. Well, a straight-on kicker didn’t angle into the ball like today’s soccer-style kickers. He ran straight at the ball and kicked it straight toward the goalpost, wearing a shoe with a special hard, square toe in it. I know this is a foreign concept for some of you younger people, but bear with an old man for a moment.

The NFL record for field goal distance is still held by a straight-on kicker who actually had a deformed foot and had to wear a specially fitted shoe: Tom Dempsey of the New Orleans Saints for sixty-three yards (since tied by Denver’s Jason Elam, for you stat freaks).

Another old-time NFL kicker, Ben Agajanian, also had a deformed foot and a special shoe. After his playing days, Ben became a respected teacher of the kicking arts. One of his pupils once asked Ben, «How can I get a kicking shoe like yours?»

«Well,» Ben said, «first you get a lawnmower…»

In the mid-1960s, the Gogolak brothers, Pete and Charley, came into the NFL, the first soccer-style kickers. And unlike the hulking, straight-on guys, they were smaller. And foreign. And they didn’t know much about football, American style. Stories abound of their running off the field after a successful kick shouting, «I keek touchdown!»

The last of the straight-ons, the Redskins’ Mark Moseley, retired in 1986. It’s been soccer style since then.

And kickers are weird in more than just the angle they take to the ball. They do strange things with their shoes. I was interviewing the Cowboys’ Chris Boniol back in the nineties, and he let it slip that he broke in his kicking shoes by soaking them in near-scalding water, while his foot was inside them. This, he said, made the leather conform to the shape of his foot. But that wasn’t the really weird part.

The really weird part is that Boniol wore a size nine street shoe. On the field, he wore a size seven!

«Wait a minute,» I said. «You take a size nine street shoe but you wear a size seven kicking shoe? How do you get your foot in there?»

«You just kind of wedge it in.»

«Doesn’t it hurt? Don’t your toes get all cramped?»

«Doesn’t matter,» Boniol said. He wanted it to feel like his shoe was just another part of his foot-one skin, so to speak. And since he was a co-holder of the record for most field goals in one game (seven-since broken), who was I to argue?

The Best Outdoor Restaurants in London

There’s something magical and special about eating dinner outdoors, especially when dining at a restaurant. Dining under an outdoor umbrella with a couple of close friends has a certain kind of positive energy to it, as you feel completely cut-off from the rest of the world (unlike how you might feel if you were sitting indoors right next to another table full of people.

There are basically two types of places that you can eat outdoors at in London. Firstly there’s the ‘trendy’ restaurants (most of which transform themselves into an even trendier bar at night), and then there’s the traditional English-style pubs that often have a beer garden or a few sets of tables and chairs out the front.

There are literally thousands of restaurants in London, and the best places to find the most reasonably priced ones (compared to the quality of their food) is in places such as Soho (basically right in the centre of London), Leicester Square, the South Bank and Covent Garden. Of all of these, Covent Garden has by far the most extravagant restaurants, and is also one of the most entertaining parts of the city, with any number of street acts (such as ‘human statues’ and jugglers) performing in the famous town square. The area really comes alive at night, and is a great place to visit if you’re just in London for the day. If you’re into more upmarket and exotic dishes, then you can’t look past Hoxton Square. The area is seen as the trendiest part of London currently.
