Kalvin phillips could get premier league medal if man city lift title.

Phillips could still be celebrating even if the club he's on loan at loses on Sunday.

  • Kalvin Phillips could receive a Premier League winners' medal despite only making four appearances for Manchester City this season.
  • Premier League rules typically require players to make five appearances for a winners' medal, potentially leaving City with limited medals to distribute.
  • Phillips may still receive a medal if City win the league, as players like Scott Carson have collected a medal before despite limited game time.

West Ham United loanee Kalvin Phillips could pocket a Premier League winners’ medal after his current side’s meeting with Manchester City in the final game of the season, despite making only four appearances for the latter this campaign.

The Englishman, before heading to east London on loan in the January transfer window, made a mere handful of cameos under Pep Guardiola’s watchful eye – hence the mid-season move. For reference, all of his Manchester-based appearances came off the bench.

The rules and regulations, set by Premier League chiefs, suggest that players have to make five appearances in order to be in line for a winners’ medal and the champions are given a total of 40 commemorative medals – all made of silver – to hand out.

Champions of the top flight are able to lobby the Premier League Board for more medals – and if City win, and they do ask for more medals, even Chelsea’s Cole Palmer could be awarded an honour for his 10-minute cameo against Burnley in August before jetting off to Stamford Bridge.

Premier League Title Race Preview: Arsenal and Man City Take it to the Final Week

Kalvin phillips’ awkward situation, could be given a medal despite losing on sunday.

For Manchester City, in the event they beat the Hammers and they win their unprecedented fourth consecutive title, they have 29 players who have featured in five or more games, while they also hand one out to veteran ‘keeper Scott Carson, leaving 11 up for grabs for City players and fans alike.

Guardiola will – no doubt – take one to add to his personal collection, leaving a total of 10 to divide between the remaining squad members plus staff – but will Phillips , set to return to the Etihad Stadium in the summer, get one despite not meeting the five-game quota?

The former Leeds United hero could find himself in a sticky situation following his game against his parent club. Should Guardiola and Co win, he could leave celebrating a title win and a medal (despite wearing West Ham colours) or he could get snubbed and leave empty-handed, having not made the cut.

8 England Players Who Need to Move Abroad

Having already collected a winners’ medal for his, albeit minor, contribution to City’s title triumph last term, Phillips, considered one of the most disappointing Premier League players this season , would certainly not turn down another, despite doing it in front of his current colleagues.

GIVEMESPORT Key Statistic: Kalvin Phillips played just 31 games for Manchester City before his loan switch, scoring one goal and notching zero assists.

Phillips’ Nightmare Stint with West Ham

Just 319 minutes under his belt.

After becoming an eternal bench warmer in the east of Manchester, the writing was finally on the wall for the 31-cap England international. A change of scenery was needed and the opportunity to join the 2022/23 Europa Conference League winners on a temporary basis was too good to turn down.

Though, it hasn’t exactly gone swimmingly for the 28-year-old, with reports in April suggesting that he would ‘consider’ a sensational return to boyhood club Leeds . The one-time Champions League winner has featured in a paltry 10 outings (319 minutes) since his switch in January.

Having not added a goal nor an assist to his tally, the defensive midfielder has doubtlessly flattered to deceive. He received his marching orders in his fourth Premier League outing for the capital club and has been on the winning side of a league match just once since his arrival.

In West Ham’s Europa League campaign, too, Phillips managed to chalk up just 13 minutes of action across two meetings with Frieburg – and he was omitted entirely from the squad to face Bayer Leverkusen, showcasing how quickly his reputation and stock has plummeted.

GoFundMe created for family of Bellingham teen killed at Northborough party

A GoFundMe was created Monday to help the family of Ygor Correia , a 16-year-old from Bellingham killed in a shooting at a party in Northborough, pay for funeral costs and bring the boy’s body back to Brazil to hold a wake.

The fundraiser was organized by Leandro Correia, who identified himself as the teen’s father. In the posting, Leandro Correia wrote that the family needs “everyone’s collaboration to raise funds and help ... in this moment of pain and need.”

“Any contribution, no matter how small, will be of great value so that we can provide a worthy goodbye to this dear young man,” Leandro Correia wrote.

Leandro Correia described Brazil as the boy’s “homeland” and called for unity and solidarity as the family continues to reel from the teen’s killing.

“May we comfort each other and honor the memory of this very special young man who unfortunately had his life taken away brutally,” the fundraiser reads.

Ygor Correia was shot and killed at a 21st birthday party with more than 300 attendees at 333 Howard St. in Northborough.

Three men are facing weapons charges in connection with Correia’s death — Wallisom Texeira Da Silva, 20, of Hyde Park, Arnoldo Nogueira Filho, 19, of Marlborough and Pedro Desouza-Passos, 27, of Rockland. All three were arraigned in Worcester District Court on Tuesday .

Authorities began investigating the shooting after a party-goer flagged down a Northborough police officer around 1 a.m. Sunday morning and told them someone had a gun at the party, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph J. Early Jr. More than 25 officers from eight different departments — including Massachusetts State Police — were preparing to enter the home when they heard gunshots.

Police then rushed into the home and found Ygor Correia had been shot. He was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester where he was declared dead.

The home where the party was held is known as The Vera Green House and traces its roots back to 1953.

A Zillow listing for the property says the 4,200-square-foot Frank Lloyd Wright-style home has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and an in-ground pool. The listing also shows a cottage on the property with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, a bar and a pool table.

“It’s quite a house,” Early said during a press conference about the shooting Sunday afternoon.

Pictures of the home featured on the listing show that it has many full-length windows, more than one walk-out porch and a stone patio with a grill.

The homeowner — a man who police did not identify — was at the house while the party was happening, officials said. Investigators are still determining whether the homeowner was hosting the party, as well as what proportion of the guests were underage, according to Early.

A spokesperson for Early’s office declined to answer questions about whether or not the homeowner would be charged, saying it was still under investigation.

What Trump promised oil CEOs as he asked them to steer $1 billion to his campaign

Donald Trump has pledged to scrap President Biden’s policies on electric vehicles and wind energy, as well as other initiatives opposed by the fossil fuel industry.

As Donald Trump sat with some of the country’s top oil executives at his Mar-a-Lago Club last month, one executive complained about how they continued to face burdensome environmental regulations despite spending $400 million to lobby the Biden administration in the last year.

Trump’s response stunned several of the executives in the room overlooking the ocean: You all are wealthy enough, he said, that you should raise $1 billion to return me to the White House. At the dinner, he vowed to immediately reverse dozens of President Biden ’s environmental rules and policies and stop new ones from being enacted, according to people with knowledge of the meeting, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private conversation.

Giving $1 billion would be a “deal,” Trump said, because of the taxation and regulation they would avoid thanks to him, according to the people.

Trump’s remarkably blunt and transactional pitch reveals how the former president is targeting the oil industry to finance his reelection bid. At the same time, he has turned to the industry to help shape his environmental agenda for a second term, including rollbacks of some of Biden’s signature achievements on clean energy and electric vehicles.

The contrast between the two candidates on climate policy could not be more stark. Biden has called global warming an “existential threat,” and over the last three years, his administration has finalized more than 100 new environmental regulations aimed at cutting air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, restricting toxic chemicals, and conserving public lands and waters. In comparison, Trump has called climate change a “hoax,” and his administration weakened or wiped out more than 125 environmental rules and policies over four years.

In recent months, the Biden administration has raced to overturn Trump’s environmental actions and issue new ones before the November election. So far, Biden officials have overturned 27 Trump actions affecting the fossil fuel industry and completed at least 24 new actions affecting the sector, according to a Washington Post analysis . The Interior Department, for instance, recently blocked future oil drilling across 13 million acres of the Alaskan Arctic .

Despite the oil industry’s complaints about Biden’s policies, the United States is now producing more oil than any country ever has , pumping nearly 13 million barrels per day on average last year. ExxonMobil and Chevron, the largest U.S. energy companies, reported their biggest annual profits in a decade last year.

Yet oil giants will see an even greater windfall — helped by new offshore drilling, speedier permits and other relaxed regulations — in a second Trump administration, the former president told the executives over the dinner of chopped steak at Mar-a-Lago.

Trump vowed at the dinner to immediately end the Biden administration’s freeze on permits for new liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports — a top priority for the executives, according to three people present. “You’ll get it on the first day,” Trump said, according to the recollection of an attendee.

The roughly two dozen executives invited included Mike Sabel, the CEO and founder of Venture Global, and Jack Fusco, the CEO of Cheniere Energy, whose proposed projects would directly benefit from lifting the pause on new LNG exports. Other attendees came from companies including Chevron, Continental Resources, Exxon and Occidental Petroleum, according to an attendance list obtained by The Post.

Trump told the executives that he would start auctioning off more leases for oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, a priority that several of the executives raised. He railed against wind power, as The Post previously reported. And he said he would reverse the restrictions on drilling in the Alaskan Arctic.

“You’ve been waiting on a permit for five years; you’ll get it on Day 1,” Trump told the executives, according to the recollection of the attendee.

At the dinner, Trump also promised that he would scrap Biden’s “mandate” on electric vehicles — mischaracterizing ambitious rules that the Environmental Protection Agency recently finalized , according to people who attended. The rules require automakers to reduce emissions from car tailpipes, but they don’t mandate a particular technology such as EVs. Trump called the rules “ridiculous” in the meeting with donors.

The fossil fuel industry has aggressively lobbied against the EPA’s tailpipe rules, which could eat into demand for its petroleum products. The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, an industry trade group, has launched a seven-figure campaign against what it calls a de facto “gas car ban.” The campaign includes ads in battleground states warning that the rule will restrict consumer choice.

“Clearly, if you are producing gasoline and diesel, you want to make sure that there’s enough market there,” said Stephen Brown, an energy consultant and a former lobbyist for Tesoro, an oil refining company. “I don’t know that the oil industry would walk in united with a set of asks for the Trump administration, but I think it’s important for this issue to get raised.”

Although the repeal of the EPA rule would benefit the fossil fuel industry, it would probably anger the auto industry, which has invested billions of dollars in the transition away from gasoline-powered cars. Many automakers are under increasing pressure to sell more EVs in Europe, which has tightened its own tailpipe emissions rules, and they are eager to avoid a patchwork of regulations around the globe.

“Automakers need some degree of regulatory certainty from government,” said John Bozzella, president and CEO of the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, which represents Ford, General Motors, Stellantis, Toyota and other car companies.

“What has emerged instead is a wholesale repeal … and then reinstatement … and then repeal again of regulations every four or eight years,” Bozzella said in an email.

Biden’s EV policies have also sparked opposition in Republican-led rural states such as North Dakota, where there are far more oil pump jacks than charging stations. A key figure leading the Trump campaign’s development of its energy policy is North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (R), who has been talking extensively to oil donors and CEOs.

At a fundraiser on Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla., Burgum told donors that Trump would halt Biden’s “attack” on fossil fuels, according to a recording of his remarks obtained by The Post.

“What would be the No. 1 thing that President Trump could do on Day 1? It’s stop the hostile attack against all American energy, and I mean all,” Burgum said. “Whether it’s baseload electricity, whether it’s oil, whether it’s gas, whether it’s ethanol, there is an attack on liquid fuels.”

Burgum also criticized the Biden administration’s policies on gas stoves and vehicles with internal combustion engines, claiming that they would prevent consumers from buying both technologies. While the Energy Department recently set new efficiency standards for gas stoves, they would not affect the stoves in people’s kitchens or those currently on the market.

“They’ve got some liberal idea about what products we need,” Burgum said. “You all need EV cars. You don’t need internal combustion. We’ll decide what kind of car you’re going to drive, and we’re going to regulate the other ones out of business. I mean, it’s just in every industry, not just in cars, not just in energy. They’re telling people what stoves you can buy. This is not America.”

The Biden campaign initially declined to comment for this article. After it was published, however, Biden campaign spokesman Ammar Moussa said in a statement that “Donald Trump is selling out working families to Big Oil for campaign checks. It’s that simple.”

“It doesn’t matter to Trump that oil and gas companies charge working families and middle-class Americans whatever they want while raking in record profits — if Donald can cash a check, he’ll do what they say,” Moussa added.

Burgum — a possible contender to lead the Energy Department in a second Trump term — has pushed harder to address climate change than many other Republicans. He set a goal in 2021 for North Dakota — the third-largest oil-producing state — to become carbon-neutral by 2030. He has stressed, however, that the goal won’t be achieved via government mandates or the elimination of fossil fuels, and he has cultivated deep support among oil donors.

Despite Trump’s huge fundraising ask, oil donors and their allies have yet to donate hundreds of millions to his campaign. They have contributed more than $6.4 million to Trump’s joint fundraising committee in the first three months of this year, according to an analysis by the advocacy group Climate Power. Oil billionaire Harold Hamm and others are scheduling a fundraiser for Trump later this year, advisers said, where they expect large checks to flow to his bid to return to office.

One person involved in the industry said many oil executives wanted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis or another Republican to challenge Biden. But now that Trump is the nominee, this person said, they are going to embrace his policies and give.

Dan Eberhart, chief executive of the oil-field services company Canary and a Trump donor, said the Republican onslaught of donations was not surprising.

“Biden constantly throws a wet blanket to the oil and gas industry,” Eberhart said. “Trump’s ‘drill, baby, drill’ philosophy aligns much better with the oil patch than Biden’s green-energy approach. It’s a no-brainer.”

Alex Witt, a senior adviser for oil and gas with Climate Power, said Trump’s promise is he will do whatever the oil industry wants if they support him. With Trump, Witt said, “everything has a price.”

“They got a great return on their investment during Trump’s first term, and Trump is making it crystal clear that they’re in for an even bigger payout if he’s reelected,” she said.

Ryan Reynolds' Movie 'IF' Bombs at Box Office, Critics Hating Too

Bill maher says history will show gop, dems equally 'stupid about s***', bill maher gop, dems equally 'stupid about s***' ... give it time, you'll see.

Bill Maher 's convinced the left and the right in America are way more similar than they each think, and he says they'll realize it soon enough ... y'know, in like a century or so.

It's no secret Bill loves to rail against the fringes -- be they Republican or Democrat -- and on this week's episode of 'Real Time,' he wondered out loud what future historians will think of this greatly divided era of American society.

Check out his clever jaunt through each side's, supposedly, opposing views on science, political leaders and conspiracies. He also points out both sides are cozying up to violent foreign regimes -- on the left it's Hamas, and on the right it's Russia and Vladimir Putin .

As Maher says, "When today's Republican watches 'Rocky IV' they root for Ivan Drago."

Of course, he didn't miss the chance to zing Donald Trump for always harkening back to some "Idyllic time" in America when the traditional family was ... well, we'll let him deliver that punchline. Hey, it was a big week for Stormy Daniels .

Anyway, Bill's bottom line, as always, is how 'bout we "meet in the middle and just not be stupid about s***."

Well, that and he's got a book, "What This Comedian Said Will Shock You" coming out next week. The guy's gotta pay the bills, right?

Biomolecular archaeologist looks at why most of world’s population has trouble digesting beverage that helped shape civilization

Harvard Staff Writer

Milk is something of a head-scratcher for Christina Warinner .

It is rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals and has served as an important food source since prehistoric times. For much of human history, milk has been consumed in various parts of the globe and has helped shape civilization, said Warriner, an anthropologist specializing in biomolecular archaeology.

But the genetic and nutritional story is complex for most of the world’s population and that has puzzled Warriner.

“We produce nearly 700 million tons of milk each year,” said Warinner, the Sally Starling Seaver Associate Professor at Radcliffe, during a Wednesday webinar, “The Milk Paradox.” “And yet we know that most of the world’s population has a lot of difficulty digesting fresh milk. So how do we get to the point where we have this food, which is spread globally and is consumed in so many different places and on every continent in various contexts, and yet it’s very difficult for us to digest?”

When humans are infants, they produce an enzyme called lactase that helps digest lactose, a sugar found in milk, but when they become adults, they stop producing it, which leads to lactose intolerance, a condition present in 65 percent of the adult human population around the world.

“When you’re an adult, you don’t produce lactase anymore, and the lactose will pass undigested into your large intestine, which is full of trillions of bacteria,” said Warinner. “They are more than happy to help you digest that lactose. The problem is in the process, because they will produce about eight liters of hydrogen gas for every quart or liter of milk that you consume.”

In her talk, Warinner, who is also the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences, spoke about her interdisciplinary approach, which includes archeology, anthropology, and ethnography, to reconstruct the prehistory of milk, the origins of dairying, and its spread throughout the world.

The story of dairying took place over thousands of years from its origins in the region that encompasses West Asia, the Balkans, and North Africa to its migration to Europe and then around the world.

Scientists believed for decades that early Neolithic farmers developed a genetic mutation that allowed them to produce lactase during adulthood to properly digest milk. This change proved beneficial as they migrated to Europe, which helped them expand over the continent and replace most of the previous hunter gatherers, said Warinner.

Today lactase persistence is common in people of European ancestry as well as some African, Middle Eastern, and Southern Asian groups.

New scientific developments, including ancient DNA analysis and genome sequencing, found that there was no lactase persistence among early farmers during the Neolithic era, and raised questions about the moment when this genetic mutation took place, said Warinner.

“So this opens up a huge question, because medically we explain lactose tolerance on the basis of these mutations or adaptations,” said Warinner. “And yet for 4,000 years, people are dairying; they developed this whole food purposefully, and then they had no genetic basis to digest it. How does this work?”

It is a question that Warinner has tried to solve in her research. “I started to wonder if there might be alternative ways of adapting to a dairy-based diet that isn’t based on your own genome, but might be adapting through the use of microbes, whether that might be, for example, culinary microbes, and through fermentation, or by adapting your own gut microbiome to be able to facilitate and improve digestion.”

Warinner’s research took her to Mongolia, a country with a long history of dairying whose economy is still centered around it, and where local herders milk more species of livestock than anywhere else in the world.

Warinner’s five-year research effort included working with archeologists in Mongolia to reconstruct genomes of ancient Mongolians to see whether they showed signs of lactase persistence.

They found low lactase persistence, which is still the norm. They also studied local cattle and yak herders to analyze their gut microbiomes and compared them with those of residents in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city.

What they found was riveting, said Warinner. Their research was able to trace the history of dairying in Mongolia, which goes back 3,000 years. The analysis of hardened tooth plaque from human skeletons found in burial mounds revealed traces of milk proteins from cows, yaks, goats, and sheep.

When they analyzed lactose intolerance among herders and urban residents in Mongolia, they found that herders showed very few symptoms of lactose intolerance and low hydrogen presence. They also found that the herders’ gut microbiome showed a high volume of lactic acid bacteria, or probiotics, which may help digestion, as well as bifidobacteria, or healthy bacteria that are especially abundant in young infants and help metabolize lactose without producing any hydrogen, said Warinner.

During her talk, Warinner highlighted the way in which archaeology can help inform present-day issues or challenges, such as finding out the many ways in which humans developed dairy products and adapted to consuming milk and dairy products.

“There’s one trajectory, which is to alter the human genome, and we’ve seen this in a number of populations around the world, but an alternative pathway seems to alter the microbes that we interact with both through food and through our own gut microbiome,” said Warinner.

As for the questions guiding her next research, Warinner said, “What change caused the genetic adaptations that occurred in some populations? We don’t know what the trigger was for it, or why in Mongolia, even when it’s introduced, it was never selected for. Those are open questions that we hope to resolve.”

Biden and Trump Agree to Debate Twice Before November Election. Here Are the Terms

Former President Trump Holds Rally In Schnecksville, Pennsylvania

P resident Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have agreed to meet for a pair of televised debates before the Nov. 5 election.

The first debate will be on June 27 hosted by CNN, the network announced Wednesday, giving voters an opportunity to hear from both candidates before casting their ballots. The second will be hosted by ABC on Sept. 10. Both candidates accepted invitations to the debates, they said.

"Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020. Since then he hasn't shown up for a debate," Biden said in a video message posted earlier in the day on X . "Now he's acting like he wants to debate me again. Make my day pal. I'll even do it twice." Biden referenced Trump’s ongoing New York hush-money trial by joking that he is “free on Wednesdays,” the usual day off in the trial.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee who refused to debate his rivals in the primary race, responded to a proposal by the Biden campaign by saying he is “ready and willing” to debate. He has in recent weeks been challenging Biden to engage in a one-on-one matchup with him, offering to debate the President “anytime, anywhere, anyplace.”

Read More: How Far Trump Would Go

“Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced - He can’t put two sentences together!” Trump wrote on Truth Social . “I am Ready and Willing to Debate Crooked Joe at the two proposed times in June and September.”

Trump said he accepted an invitation for a third debate on Oct. 2 hosted by Fox News, though it’s unclear if Biden will agree. Trump's campaign also proposed holding two additional debates in July and August.

Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a letter that Biden would not take part in the traditional televised showdowns organized by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, citing the commission’s late schedule and past struggles to keep candidates from violating the debate rules. Trump has also leveled criticisms against the commission, arguing that it is biased against him and begins too late in the campaign season.

The Biden campaign proposed several criteria for how the debates should be structured, calling on the debates to be hosted by a broadcast organization that moderated a Republican primary debate in 2016 as well as one that did so in the Democratic primary in 2020, “so neither campaign can assert that the sponsoring organization is obviously unacceptable.” Moderators for the debate, the Biden campaign argued, should be “selected by the broadcast host from among their regular personnel, so as to avoid a ‘ringer’ or partisan.”

Read More: Biden’s Campaign Is In Trouble. Will the Turnaround Plan Work?

“There should be firm time limits for answers, and alternate turns to speak — so that the time is evenly divided and we have an exchange of views, not a spectacle of mutual interruption,” O’Malley Dillon wrote in the letter. She also argued that the debates should be conducted for voters to watch on television from their homes instead of in front of live audiences “with raucous or disruptive partisans and donors, who consume valuable debate time with noisy spectacles of approval or jeering.” 

Trump said he disagreed with Biden’s call not to debate in front of a crowd. “I would strongly recommend more than two debates,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “And, for excitement purposes, a very large venue, although Biden is supposedly afraid of crowds - That’s only because he doesn’t get them. Just tell me when, I’ll be there. ‘Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!’”

While both candidates have agreed to at least two debates, Biden's team is signaling skepticism that Trump will stick to the plan. "“Donald Trump has a long history of playing games with debates: complaining about the rules, breaking those rules, pulling out at the last minute, or not showing up at all," O'Malley Dillon said in a statement. "No more games. No more chaos, no more debate about debates. We’ll see Donald Trump on June 27th in Atlanta – if he shows up.”

Biden also called for a vice presidential debate to take place in late July after the Republican National Convention.

The Slippery Slide

I am British, and we say "lift", but when I've said it to American friends, I've either confused them or they've laughed at me. "Ride" is used in the USA. I don't know about other parts of the world. All your sentences can be correct (depending on the place), except for "Can I ride you home?", because that suggests that the other person will carry you on his or her back.
