SAN JOSE — As Sharks Territory lost its collective mind over the news that Erik Karlsson was coming to town, Timo Meier saw an extra cherry in the eight-piece trade with the Ottawa Senators.In addition to Karlsson, the Sharks acquired minor league forward Francis Perron, Meier’s junior hockey linemate. Meier told his teammates to “watch out” for the 22-year-old forward. So far, Perron is living up to billing, leading the Sharks’ minor-league affiliate in scoring with 28 points in 27 games and …

By Carol ChurchEvery military couple knows how important it is to reconnect, get away, and spend a little special time together, especially after a service member returns from deployment or before the service member departs. It’s especially crucial for parents of children, who often are so focused on their kids and their needs that they can forget to nurture their own bonds.Bonecotrainer/Pixabay.com, CC0Unfortunately, as we know, it can be tough to find the time, space, and most of all, money to make this happen. This doesn’t mean that couples should give up on their efforts to get away together, though! Read on for some budget-friendly ways to connect that won’t empty your savings account.Visit a destination spot in its off season: A ski resort in summer? The beach in winter? Yes and yes. Many vacation areas that have a spendy “on season” are still trying to make a buck in the “off season”—but prices are quite a bit lower. There’s often still plenty to do and the area is still lovely. Plus, no crowds.Go camping: If you haven’t been camping since you were a kid and think of it as lying in a tiny tent on a thin foam pad, you may be surprised by how things have changed. Many state parks now offer very nice cabins, yurts, lodges, and other interesting options (or tent pads and backcountry sites, if that’s more your thing.) With the benefit of renting gear cheaply through the Equipment Rental office on base and bringing your own food, this can be an awesomely inexpensive option. Wait till the very last minute: With the military lifestyle being what it is, this may sometimes be more of necessity than an intentional choice—but it can work in your favor! Hotel rooms and even flights sometimes drop drastically in cost at the last minute. Try Google Flights, Hipmunk and Hotwire for last-minute plane and hotel deals. Don’t neglect airline and hotel websites, either.Try a staycation: If you’re like most of us, you know there’s plenty to do and see in your own town that you just never seem to get around to. This can be especially cheap if you stay in your own home (without the kids, if possible!)Go Grouponing: You may have dabbled in Groupon when a deal for a restaurant or other opportunity in your area came to your attention, but did you know you can use it to specifically search for current hotel, restaurant and attraction deals in your area? This method of “preshopping” for a specific planned trip can eliminate a common problem of buying Groupon deals for “sometime” and failing to use them before they expire.Don’t forget about ITT: The military’s Information, Tickets, and Travel service on bases has a ton of amazing info on attractions, hotels, and trips in your areas, and they can help you get access to special reduced military prices on a vast array of options. (Look for info on individual ITT offices in the Morale, Welfare and Recreation section of base websites.)Check out a cool Airbnb not far from home: Have you ever spent some time browsing the Airbnb listings within a couple of hours of your home? Sure, you can try the more conventional home rental sites like VRBO or Flipkey, but Airbnb, a more casual, unique, and personal “rent someone’s home” site, tends to have options that are both less expensive and a lot more interesting (tipi or hammock under the stars, anyone?) Watch for cleaning fees and read the reviews, but you’ll usually be able to find something for quite a bit less than a hotel.Most of us won’t be able to afford a luxury getaway to Hawaii, at least not often. (Even if we could, our retirement accounts might not appreciate it!) The good news is that couples can find enjoy special time together in so many ways. With a little planning and creativity, these getaways can cost less and still be very memorable.

A man in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district got himself murdered so that his family members could claim ₹50 lakh insurance he had bought and spend the rest of their life in comfort. Balbir Kharol (38), a moneylender, took the bizarre decision not because he was debt-ridden, but because he failed to recover money from people who had taken loans from him, according to police. The two accused, Rajvir Singh and Sunil Yadav, who were arrested on Monday for killing Kharol, revealed during interrogation that the moneylender was initially considering to orchestrate his death in an accident but was doubtful he might survive, Superintendent of Police Harendra Mahawar said on Tuesday. “This is a very unusual thing, but this is what the murder accused have revealed,” the SP said. Kharol had lent nearly ₹20 lakh to different people but was unable to recover the amount. For the last six months, he did not receive any payment, Mr. Mahawar said. He then planned his own murder so that his family can get the insured amount and lead an easy life, the officer said.Kharol had bought the insurance policy from a private bank a month ago and paid the first premium. He then hired Singh and Yadav and promised to pay them ₹80,000 for executing the murder, the SP said. The accused were arrested on the basis of Kharol’s call details and a CCTV footage.
Richard Williams All Or Not Quite Nothing would be a fair billing for the next three months, which are by comparison fretted with intrigue. City have a maximum of 20 matches left to play this season. In the course of which this team has a chance to add the three biggest trophies in English club football, a four-pronged feat that still looks an impossible stretch of luck, resources and the competing claims of every other club in the scrum for honours.Most things do not happen. This one will probably not either. But then very few have ever been this close or, indeed, so close with some key factors in their favour. It was notable when Pep Guardiola was asked about the prospect of a quadruple he did not roll his eyes and say “fuck” as he did two years ago, but instead dismissed the idea in more measured terms.Nobody manages the details like Guardiola. He knows exactly where City stand. The squad is strong. The fixtures are tough but not impossible. City have won 13 of their last 15 games. So, for now, let’s just take a moment to dream. Share on Messenger Manchester City win Carabao Cup on penalties after Chelsea’s Kepa chaos Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content Share on LinkedIn Read more Read more Share on Facebook Topics Pep Guardiola It is probably fair to say Manchester City’s in-house team made the fawning soft-focus documentary All or Nothing a year too soon. “Guys we are so close!” That was your catchphrase. Except, they weren’t really.City won the Premier League by a mile last year thanks to a run of sustained sublime form. But otherwise their season lost its dramatic tension on 4 April when City were eviscerated by Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final first leg, shrinking the scope of their ambitions to that near-perfect league season. Fast forward 10 months and Sunday’s slow-burn victory in the Carabao Cup final has set up a fascinating point of contrast; one of those moments where the background noise starts to fall away and it makes sense, for the first time, to contemplate the wildly improbable. Straight away City have an advantage on timing. The fixtures come thick but not that fast. If they can finish off Schalke in two weeks’ time and get past Swansea in the FA Cup there is one obvious logjam to come. Between 6 April and 24 April City would play six high-pressure games in 19 days, a run that goes: FA Cup semi; Champions League quarter-final (first leg); Crystal Palace away; Champions League quarter-final (second leg); Tottenham at home; Manchester United away.Get through another flurry around the Champions League semi-finals and the season ends in fairly orderly fashion. Brighton away is the final Premier League fixture on 12 May. The FA Cup final is on 18 May. The distant prospect of a Champions League final would round things off on the first day of June. Kepa farce distracted his teammates and disrespected the entire game Facebook Pinterest Carabao Cup Share via Email The only really worrying note is the injury sustained on Sunday by Fernandinho. John Stones’s return from his hamstring twang will also be vital: Vincent Kompany is a great club servant but isolated against a player like Eden Hazard he wheels around like a passenger ferry with a wonky rear thruster these days.On the plus side Bernardo Silva is in excellent shape, all non-stop ferreting intelligence on and off the ball. Left-back has looked like a problem but Oleksandr Zinchenko was magnificent at Wembley. Sergio Agüero is in his absolute pomp right now. Raheem Sterling has five goals and four assists in 10 games, a man running hot at just the right time.Comparisons are of course odious – and indeed meaningless given the complete re-gearing of every part of football’s surfaces from year to year. But with 20 games to win them all, the question will naturally be asked as to where such an achievement would rank.Some will point to the thinning out at the very top, the fact fewer clubs are winning more trophies generally. But it would be incorrect to belittle this as a bought success, a triumph devalued by the extreme amounts of money involved.For a start nobody wins anything these days without spending. That much is a given. Secondly this is above all a City team marked out by the more human elements. To miss the fact Guardiola has improved almost every one of his players, that the team has a system and a way of playing that is thrillingly well-grooved, that City have resisted the urge simply to buy ready-made world stars, is to miss the basic beauty of sport altogether.The one area lacking is some sense of internal, organic growth. Every sporting triumph lacks a little something without an element of home-made talent. United’s treble winners had seven academy products playing regularly in the first team. The greatest British European triumph of all, Celtic in 1967, saw Jock Stein pick a team drawn entirely from the Glasgow districts. City remains a portable project, all outsourced parts, and one that has yet to spawn a regular home-grown City player since the Abu Dhabi takeover. Such is the way of modern football elsewhere too. For now Sunday’s cup final leaves this fine City team 20 games from a sporting feat that will most likely prove beyond them but which has never felt quite so close at hand. features The United treble team in 1999 played seven games in 26 days. Should City get as far they would end with four in 28 days Sportblog Manchester City Manchester City’s players celebrate after their penalty shootout victory over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final. Photograph: Matthew Impey/Rex/Shutterstock Share on Pinterest It is an unusually well spaced-out endgame, and a favourable turn for any club caught in the familiar English slog through the spring. By comparison Manchester United’s treble-winning season 20 years ago finished on 26 May, with United required to tie up three trophies in the final 10 days.That United team played seven games in 26 days from the start of May. Should City get as far, they would end with four games in 28 days. Where does the advantage lie? United carried all before them in a glorious adrenal rush, with no time to look down or feel any fear. Could there be another kind of difficulty in that “cold time” between fixtures?There are some more positive lessons to be learned along the way. United had seven different goalscorers in their last seven games, the burden shared as the line approached. And it is here that City also have deeper gears. Share on Twitter Twitter

Don Hue Gardiner, that the bill creates “too many loopholes” for individuals to obtain TCI status. Views like: “The bill does not empower Turks and Caicos Islanders” were widely shared last night in the first of a series of town hall meetings slated nationwide. One attendee boldly stated that “the government seems to have an obligation to people who are not Turks and Caicos Islanders. While the new bill could introduce legislation for the automatic grant of status to children born outside of the country to a Turks and Caicos Island parent; residents took particular exception to portions of the bill which would provide status to children of PRC holders, children who graduate from a Turks and Caicos high school, and freelance work permits. Here are some comments. “I don’t think any child born to parents who do not have status here in the islands should qualify for status; that is wrong!”“So until we enforce the laws we put on our books and borders are controlled we gonna continue here making bill after bill, law after law and then we gonna continue with the same problem. Our borders are too open. We need to put people who are serious about controlling this country and who have a heart for the country in Immigration law office.”Monday’s meeting likely sets the tone for future public discussions on the touchy immigration issues which continue tonight in Grand Turk at the HJ Robinson High School auditorium at 6pm.
