Devoted friends launch foundation in memory of their treasured football team mate. When local man John Merill passed away suddenly, aged just 42, in September 2022, his devoted family and friends felt an understandably huge sense of loss. John helped to set up and run Home Bargains FC during that time, which I know he was really proud of. The first event for The Mez Foundation #16 next week is going to be exactly as described – a challenge. These will just be the beginning of our schedule for The Mez Foundation #16.
Everton have sacked manager Frank Lampard due to the club being second bottom of the Premier League table. Lampard was hired one year ago and was viewed as one of the reasons as to why Everton stayed in the division by the skin of their teeth. In their first season back in the Premier League under Bielsa they stayed up and excelled as at one point they were possibly challenging for Europe as they finished 9th one place above Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton side. Bielsa and Dyche are the two frontrunners for the job but other names such as Ralph Hasenhuttl and Wayne Rooney have also been linked. He brought the club together last season but now the club has never been so divided.1 month ago Explore Liverpool
This perspective of immense time leads one to notice subtleties in the landscape that are caused by very slow changes. If the ground is still shifting, albeit slowly, the orientation of the tree’s trunks should also shift. PHOTO BY PAUL SWENSONThere are many reasons for tree trunks to become “J-shaped” but around the Big Sky region slow movement of the landscape, or creep, is a major cause. Therefore, if a tree or plant is tipped away from vertical, the plant will change the shape of new growth to approach vertical. Auxin being the growth hormone then causes the cells of the stem or trunk to elongate more on the bottom than the top.4 months ago Explore Big Sky
As the Big Horns earned their 3-1 win, fans contributed to a 50/50 raffle to raise money for the Bozeman Mammogram Project. Senior Emily Graham added an ace, and Grabow painted the back corner with an electrifying spike to give the Big Horns a 16-7 lead. The Big Horns took the second set 25-17. The Big Horns started playing even with the Rebels, but the buffer was enough to carry Shields Valley to a 25-20 win. In the fourth, she led the Big Horns with vocal energy and athleticism, bringing energy back into the gym.5 months ago Explore Big Sky
The state of Arizona doesn’t observe daylight savings time, so the Diamondbacks of Phoenix spend the baseball season in line with the pacific time zone, making the Rockies the only baseball team truly playing in Mountain Time. All of this suggests why—just like every other major professional sport—Montana is the epicenter of America’s baseball desert. Big Sky is 283 miles from the epicenter of the American Baseball Desert.

For an international flight you should arrive at the airport between three and four hours before departure. For domestic flights, people should aim to arrive at least 90 minutes before departure, with two hours before being before. At the time advised by your airline, which is generally two hours before short-haul flights and three hours before long-haul. What happens if I miss my flight because of long airport queues? If you follow the airline’s advice, though, and arrive at the airport in good time you might be able to claim on your travel insurance.4 months ago Liverpool Echo
And the defence should revert to Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson. Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk will be trusted with securing their third clean sheet in as many games - with Alisson Becker behind the central pairing.

Get our Knowsley newsletter for the best stories, photos, videos and opinionAn urban explorer has given an insight into a once "grand" building with a dark history. Built in the 1850s, Mossley Manor Care Home in Mossley Hill was forced to close back in 2015 after inspectors uncovered a string of failures. But as the historical building awaits its future fate, urban explorer Elliot Ward took viewers on a journey inside the building, before it is potentially lost forever. (Image: Elliot Ward/Nothing But Elliot YouTube)The video takes viewers through the rooms of the once grand building which showed collapsed ceilings, smashed windows, huge piles of rubbish, and equipment just left abandoned in hallways and rooms. Again the building is set for demolition so there's not much more that can be done for the place.4 months ago Liverpool Echo
