They were made to work for it, but Celtic got the job done in the Highlands this afternoon. Ross County put in another decent performance after impressing at Tynecastle last week, but are again left empty handed after going down 3-1 to the champions. Set pieces were a weak point for the Hops last season, and County capitalised on that when Alex Iacovitti headed home to draw them level. And any doubt was removed when Liel bada added a wonderful third in stoppage time. 3-1 was harsh on County, but they can't really argue that Celtic deserved the points in the end based on chances created.

Photo by George Beck--Havant & Waterlooville 3, Slough Town 1Slough Town's opening day trip to the south coast ended in defeat as they were beaten 3-1 by a strong-looking Havant & Waterlooville side in National League South. Joe Dandy, who'd earlier gone into the book for breaking down a Havant counterattack, bravely blocked another well-struck volley from Roberts. A bullet header from Ben Harris got Slough back in the match 10 minutes later, the forward powerfully heading home Johnny Goddard's cross. And Joe Oastler had to be alert in the 67th minute to divert another effort from Harris over the bar. Afterwards joint manager Neil Baker said: “Got what we deserved in a tough opener.

Argonne National Laboratory has published a new cradle-to-grave (C2G) lifecycle analysis (LCA) of US LDV vehicle-fuel pathways. The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the cost and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of a variety of vehicle-fuel pathways; the levelized cost of driving (LCD); and the cost of avoided GHG emissions. —“Cradle-to-grave lifecycle analysis of US light-duty vehicle-fuel pathways” (2022)C2G GHG emissions of various vehicle-fuel pathways for small SUVs assuming high technology progress. The cost of those technologies, though still a major component of overall vehicle cost, is modeled to improve significantly over the intervening period, leading to a much lower total vehicle cost. Low-carbon fuels can have significantly higher costs than conventional fuels; however, vehicle cost is the major (60–90%) and fuel cost the minor (10–40%) component of LCD.

Sean Bean has claimed "a lot of men these days are made to feel like apologists for their sexuality and their masculinity" as he discussed his latest acting project. Ahead of the start of his latest project, BBC drama Marriage, Bean spoke to The Times newspaper in London about how he feels views on men have changed in the post-#MeToo movement world. Bean added: "Certain aspects of a man's character are frowned upon now as being discriminatory or boorish. "A lot of men these days are made to feel like apologists for their sexuality and their masculinity. I spoke with Sean Bean about masculinity, the Lady Chatterley sex scenes and why he's been married five times.

England’s bid for a Commonwealth Games gold medal was ended after they fell agonisingly short in a nerve-jangling run chase against India at Edgbaston. Set 165, which would have been their highest successful T20 chase on home soil, England needed 12 from the last two balls but Maia Bouchier could only get a single off the penultimate delivery. We will play in the Bronze Medal Match tomorrow. “Any loss is tough to take, we obviously wanted to be in the gold medal match and hadn’t considered not (being in the final). “With the bat we needed someone to kick on and put India under a bit of pressure.
