Man Utd to turn to Bundesliga boss amid Solskjaer doubts

first_img The German has steadied the ship since his arrival, with Bayern losing only twice in 15 Bundesiga games since their loss to Frankfurt. However, Flick is set to leave the German champions at the end of the season when his short-term contract expires and it is thought that the club are exploring other potential candidates such as Massimiliano Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino. Therefore, Bild continues by saying that United could swoop in amid the uncertainty over Flick’s future and secure his services if they decide to wield the axe on Solskjaer. In other news, Solskjaer is reportedly planning on selling five first-team stars as he prepares for a summer spending spree.

The Red Devils have won nine of those games and kept the same number of clean sheets, putting the club into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and effectively into the same stage of the Europa League. According to German newspaper Bild (via the Daily Express), however, United are still not fully convinced by Solskjaer and are considering appointing Flick at the end of the season. Having sacked Niko Kovac in November after a 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt, Flick – then Kovac’s assistant – was appointed in interim charge.Advertisement Manchester United are considering interim Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick as a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of the season, according to a fanciful report in the German media.

Barca hammer Sevilla to win 30th Copa del Rey

first_imgBut this performance, as easy on the eye as it was emphatic, will certainly serve as a counter-point to those that believe Valverde’s team have been efficient, rather than exciting this season, and overly reliant on Messi.“Winning the Cup does not hide the disappointment in Rome,” Suarez said after the match. “But at the beginning of the season anyone would have signed for a double.”Messi was, of course, superb again on Saturday but this was not a one-man show.? Our report on a sensational #Copa30 triumph! ?https://t.co/q579lLHN5m— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) April 21, 2018Suarez scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season while Iniesta delivered one of those effortless displays, in which at times he was virtually unplayable.If this is to be the 33-year-old’s last Barca final before departing for China, it was a fitting farewell, with only goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen absent from the 10-man huddle that engulfed the Spaniard following his shimmying fourth.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Madrid, Spain | AFP | Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez inspired Barcelona to what will surely be the first part of a domestic double this season as they thrashed Sevilla 5-0 on Saturday to win the Copa del Rey.Messi had scored once and Suarez twice before even the half-time whistle had blown at the Wanda Metropolitano, with the sublime Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho later compounding Sevilla’s humiliation.Barca’s exhilarating display earns them their 30th triumph in this competition and fourth in a row, having reached the final in each of the last five years.

Murdock Trust Approves Grant of $800,000 for Saint Martin’s University’s New…

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s UniversitySaint Martin’s University is $800,000 closer to breaking ground for its new science building—a 30,000 square-foot classroom and laboratory facility—thanks to a grant from the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, Washington.“The University is grateful to the Murdock Trust for its generous support of the Science Initiative and our STEM students,” said Saint Martin’s University President Roy Heynderickx, Ph.D. “According to recent reports, Washington is one of the top states in the nation in the concentration of STEM jobs, but much lower in the proportion of STEM degrees produced. The new science building will allow Saint Martin’s to recruit and graduate more STEM students who will make valuable contributions to Washington and its economy.”As Saint Martin’s nears its fundraising goals for the Science Initiative, the University plans to break ground this fall on a new 30,000-square-foot classroom and laboratory facility that will house its growing natural and physical science programs. The new science building, which is scheduled to open in fall 2019, will include laboratories, classrooms, collaborative research spaces and offices. It will be strategically located near Cebula Hall and adjacent to the Panowicz Foundry for Innovation and the E.L. Wiegand Laboratories, which houses engineering, computer science and industrial labs, creating a STEM complex at the core of the campus.“As a part of its strategic vision, students choosing to study in a field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, have blossomed at Saint Martin’s University,” said Moses Lee, Ph.D., program director for research and science at the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. “This growth is a result of the university’s strategic investment in building up its STEM programs, the construction of this modern and well-equipped science building within the STEM complex and the creation of a vibrant culture in undergraduate research. The Murdock Trust is pleased to the stand behind this vision and this exciting project.”“This wonderful grant from the Murdock Trust is instrumental to our continuing focus on increased faculty-student research and teaching collaboration. It will also accelerate the pace of student and faculty scholarship as well as successful grant-writing,” said Jeff Crane, Ph.D., dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and interim dean of the School of Business.Since 2013, Saint Martin’s University has experienced marked growth in enrollment across all of its STEM departments. The Murdock Trust previously made two grants to the University’s Engineering Initiative—one in support of the building of Cebula Hall and one in support of the construction of the Panowicz Foundry for Innovation and the E.L. Wiegand Laboratories. After the launch of the Engineering Initiative in 2010, the civil and mechanical engineering programs have seen a 30 percent increase in students. This has led to a greater demand for mathematics and physics classes, which are prerequisites for engineering. In addition, biology majors have grown to represent ten percent of all University students and the chemistry department is at its highest enrollment ever.M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, created by the will of the late Melvin. J. (Jack) Murdock, provides grants to organizations in five states of the Pacific Northwest—Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington—that seek to strengthen the region’s educational and cultural base in creative and sustainable ways. More information is available at www.murdocktrust.org.Saint Martin’s University is an independent, four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 13 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 27 majors and ten graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,300 undergraduate students and 250 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and more students to its extended campus located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
