Another Startup Transforming the Music Industry
The Street - about 3 years
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If you immerse yourself in Internet radio and its love/hate relationship with the music industrial complex long enough, you recognize a theme I have been beating for some time. Startups play a critical role in helping musicians and record labels reach their potential in an age transformed by new and inevitably permanent ways of delivering and consuming music. There's no questioning Pandora and Spotify's impact. And, even if Apple isn't in Internet radio to win it the way Pandora is, you can't minimize the meaning of its presence in the space. Add to this the very really possibility that Yahoo! or somebody else gets serious about live concert streaming. We would have yet another game changer. So, this is not to say the big boys don't matter. They do. And, because of their ability to achieve and maintain scale, they'll likely dictate the look and feel of change. However, many of the things they do will be inspired, pushed forward or complemented by the work o ...

Away results of late don’t tell the true picture of Leeds United’s strengths - Lorimer
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 4 years
When we talk about the quality of a club’s form, we tend to talk in statistics. Win most of your home matches and that’s decent form; drop too many points away from home and it’s seen as a weakness. Sometimes the reality is as simple as that but to look at Leeds United’s recent away matches, it’s clear to see how the stats disguise what’s really going on. I should say at this point that Leeds, in the main, have struggled on the road this season. With odd exceptions prior to the turn of the year, they failed to turn up far too often and the situation came to a head during their awful performance at Barnsley last month. But since then they’ve been desperately unlucky. They took a point from Wolves when three were on a plate and they lost at Middlesbrough despite having enough of the game and enough of the chances to win it comfortably. Add to those results an unlucky draw against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and it all adds up to an annoying spell. Anyone who hasn’t followed us recen ...

Everton v Liverpool - live! | Tom Bryant

• Hammer F5 to refresh • Email any thoughts to tom.bryant.casual@guardian.co.uk • Check out the rest of today's latest scores 90min +1: Everton make a valiant attempt to get the ball into the box, via Gueye. Baines then attempts the same from the other side of the pitch. The problem being that there was no-one in the middle to latch onto the ball. 90 min: Just feels as if the fight has gone out of this. Both sides seem to be settling for the draw. There are four minutes of extra time, so there's still time ... 89 min: Suarez attempts to latch onto a long ball but, in turning, he is caught by Distin. A long range free-kick follows, arcing into the box. He hits it too far, unfortunately, and the ball goes out for a goal kick. Graveyard shift-gate with SB Tang: "Page 188 of Gerrard: My Autobiography (Bantam ed, 2007): I was left fighting with Danny Murphy and David Thompson for right midfield. Danny, Thommo and I called it the 'graveyard shift'." This is a tedious debate, isn't it? ...

Leeds United v Blackburn Rovers: Diouf proving so priceless
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
It is as someone said last week, 11 versus 11 once the battle lines are drawn. and spending £8million on Jordan Rhodes looks less than astute when a defence caves in as Blackburn Rovers’ did at Elland Road. Blackburn are awash with cash and Leeds United are not, as demonstrated by the last few days of the transfer window, but the playing field was levelled by the club who invested £5,000-a-week in El-Hadji Diouf while Rovers were signing Rhodes for nine times the salary. Both deals went through in the 48 hours before Saturday’s game and Diouf emerged from one isolated fixture as the better example of value for money. While Rhodes struggled down blind alleys on his debut, Diouf assisted a revival which questioned the wisdom of Steve Kean in devoting so much money to the front end of Blackburn’s team. Kean’s was one of two suspect defences at Elland Road, both of which leant themselves to an absorbing Championship match. Leeds seemed lost after 27 minutes but gave Blackburn a kicking ...

Leeds United 3 Blackburn Rovers 3: Whites denied at the death
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
A back-heeled goal from Ruben Rochina denied Leeds United a deserved win over Blackburn Rovers. Rochina struck in inventive style six minutes from time to snatch a dramatic point for Rovers at the end of a torrid second. Leeds had earlier fought back from a 2-0 deficit to take a 3-2 lead. Second-half goals from Ross McCormack and Luciano Becchio appeared to have secured the most unlikely of wins before Rochina came off the bench to strike. Blackburn took control early on with first-half efforts from Markus Olsson and Nuno Gomes before El-Hadji Diouf pulled a goal back for Leeds just before the break. Both sides had chances in the second period with United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny holding a free-kick from Morten Gamst Pedersen and Gael Givet blocking a shot from Luke Varney inside his own six-yard box. Danny Murphy almost claimed a third goal for Rovers when his volley flew inches wide on 52 minutes but Blackburn were as fortunate to see Dickson Etuhu deflect David Norris’ attempt wi ...

Mother’s tragic tribute to lost son
The Gazette - over 4 years
A DISTRAUGHT mum today opened her heart after tragically losing her “hero” son. Chris Herbert, 21, died after he was found collapsed in a phone box on a Blackpool street. Today, Melanie Herbert, 40, of Lawson Road, Marton, told The Gazette: “I can’t even explain what he was because to me he was my hero. “Although I’m older I look up to my son.” Chris was known across the resort as a talented rapper whose lyrics touched on subjects such as the father and sister he never knew. He was found in the phone box on Whitegate Drive on Tuesday morning, with flowers now left at the scene as a mark of respect. An inquest has yet to be opened but it is not being treated as suspicious. Melanie, who brought Chris up on her own, says the lack of a paternal role model in his life made him determined to care for his younger brother Owen, 12. She said: “He took the role on of man of the house because he thought he needed to, but he wanted to do it too. “All the lads said Chris spoke of his broth ...

Soybean growers cheer Colombian trade agreement
Des Moines Register - almost 5 years
The American Soybean Association Monday praised the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, which will take effect May 15. “The enactment of the free trade agreement with Colombia next month is a tremendous opportunity for soybean farmers, as it will expand a valuable export market for our products,” said ASA First Vice President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss. “We are making steady progress toward regaining lost market share in Colombia, and this agreement will markedly advance that progress. We applaud the efforts of the Obama and Santos Administrations in seeing the free trade agreement with Colombia enacted next month.” Iowa is the nation’s largest soybean producer. As part of the agreement, more than half of all U.S. farm exports to Colombia—including soybeans and soybean meal and flour—will become duty-free, with virtually all of the remaining tariffs to be eliminated over the next 15 years. The agreement also provides duty free tariff r ...

Football: Di Matteo predicts tough fight for fourth spot
The Express Tribune Blogs - almost 5 years
LONDON: Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo believes the race for fourth spot in the Premier League will go to the final game of the season after their 1-1 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage. Di Matteo’s men could have gone above fourth-placed Tottenham, who lost to Norwich earlier on Monday, had they beaten their west London rivals. But Frank Lampard’s penalty – his 150th Premier League goal – on the stroke of half-time was cancelled out by Clint Dempsey’s late header for Fulham. The top three teams in the Premier League at the end of the season gain direct entry into the Champions League group stages, with the fourth-placed side set for the qualifying round. This draw left Chelsea two points behind Tottenham, their opponents in an all-London FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Sunday. Di Matteo, interim manager following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, said Chelsea’s habit of conceding late goals – they’ve let in 20 in the final 10 minutes of ga ...

    More Details Hide Details He scored his second goal for Tottenham when Jermain Defoe was injured in a pre-match warm-up against Newcastle United; manager Martin Jol brought Murphy into a 4–5–1 formation.

    Age 26
    Murphy signed for Charlton Athletic from Liverpool for £2.5m on a four-year contract in August 2004.
    More Details Hide Details In his first season at Charlton, Murphy struggled to recapture the form that he had shown at Liverpool.
  • 2001
    Age 23
    Murphy has been capped for England nine times and has scored one goal. He made his debut in a friendly match against Sweden in November 2001, and scored his first international goal in a 4-0 victory over Paraguay in April 2002.
    More Details Hide Details Having been called up as a replacement for injured club team-mate Steven Gerrard, he was set to play at the 2002 World Cup, but had to withdraw from the squad after he suffered a metatarsal injury similar to that which had affected England team mates David Beckham and Gary Neville in the run-up to the tournament. Murphy is married to actress Joanna Taylor, whom he met through mutual friend Andrew Beattie. After two failed IVF attempts, they have two children, Mya Eve Murphy, born on 15 August 2006 and a son, Ethan (born 2010).
    During the 2001/02 season, when he established himself as a key member of the side, Liverpool's assistant manager Phil Thompson praised Murphy, citing his versatility and describing him as 'probably the most tactically aware player that we have.'
    More Details Hide Details Although the 2002/03 season was overall a disappointing one for Liverpool, with the club slumping to fifth in the table after a lengthy winless run in mid-winter, Murphy had a fine individual campaign which saw him score 12 goals and be voted the supporters' player of the season. He developed an uncanny habit of scoring the deciding goal in 1–0 wins against Manchester United at Old Trafford, a feat he achieved three times in four seasons (2000–01, 2001–02 and 2003–04).
    Though naturally a central midfield player, Murphy often played as a wide midfielder due to the fierce competition for places, most notably from Steven Gerrard and Dietmar Hamann. Murphy's career at Liverpool included a unique cup treble in 2001 (where Liverpool won the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup), a Premier League second place finish in 2002 and a second League Cup in 2003.
