Report: Stoke 2 Man United 2

first_imgStoke City 2 Manchester United 2: Choupo-Moting double holds wasteful visitors Ryan Benson Last updated 2 years ago 02:26 10/9/2017 choupo-moting-cropped Getty Images Manchester United dropped points for the first time this season as Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s double helped Stoke City to a 2-2 draw. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s double secured Stoke City a battling 2-2 draw at home to a wasteful Manchester United side that dropped points for the first time this season.Jose Mourinho’s men attracted plenty of admirers for their impressive start to the campaign, but they were not at their best in front of goal and Choupo-Moting inspired Stoke to a commendable point at the bet365 Stadium.An entertaining first half saw both sides look a danger going forward, with United in particular guilty of wasting numerous chances to take the lead.

It’s 2-2 with 10 minutes to go at the bet365 Stadium (2-2) #SCFC pic.twitter.com/lLcHr3f7tM— Stoke City FC (@stokecity) September 9, 2017Stoke took full advantage of those let-offs late in the half – Choupo-Moting slamming in from close range after a fine Mame Biram Diouf cross.Their joy was short-lived, though, as United levelled a few moments later as Pogba’s header hit an oblivious Rashford following a Henrikh Mkhitaryan corner and found the net.United completed the turnaround in the 57th minute and Mkhitaryan was at the centre of things again, slicing open the Stoke defence with an intricate pass for Lukaku, who found the net at the second time of asking after Butland saved his first effort.But Stoke were level again shortly after.David De Gea made a remarkable save to deny Jese initially, but from the resulting corner he was rendered helpless, as Choupo-Moting headed in at the back post after shaking off Phil Jones’ weak challenge.There was still time for United to almost snatch it with two late chances. The first fell to Lukaku, who inexplicably turned Antonio Valencia’s cross over from eight yards with nine minutes left, before Butland heroically got down to prevent Kurt Zouma from scoring an own goal deep into stoppage time.Key Opta stats: – Manchester United haven’t won any of their five Premier League away games at Stoke since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 (D3 L2) – only at Chelsea, Tottenham (4 each) and Cardiff (once) have they failed to win in the league since the Scotsman left.- Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s opener was the first goal Manchester United had conceded in 535 minutes of Premier League football, since Harry Kane’s strike at White Hart Lane in May.- There were just 161 seconds between Choupo-Moting’s opener and Marcus Rashford’s equaliser for Man Utd.- Only Wayne Rooney (15) scored more Premier League goals as a teenager for Man Utd than Rashford has (currently 12, same as Ryan Giggs).- Romelu Lukaku’s strike was his 150th in club football (41 Anderlecht, 17 West Brom, 87 Everton and 5 for Manchester United).- No player has scored more goals in their first four Premier League games for Man Utd than Lukaku (4, same as Louis Saha, Robin van Persie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic).- Choupo-Moting became the first player to open his Premier League goal account with a brace against Manchester United since Afonso Alves in April 2008.- Mark Hughes has become only the second manager to go unbeaten in four consecutive Premier League managerial clashes with Jose Mourinho, after Ronald Koeman (5 games).  read morelast_img read more

Fragrance Creation 101 With New AXE YOU

first_img Do You Want Your Home to Smell Like Scotch Country? World-Class Runner Caryn Lubetsky Didn’t Run Her First Marathon Until She Was 40 NASCAR Driver Brad Keselowski on Crashing, Winning, and Creating a Legacy Editors’ Recommendations On the Road with Mikah Meyer, the First Person to Visit Every National Park Site in One Trip You might be surprised to know just how much goes into making your favorite fragrances.Similar to crafting fine wines, the process entails bringing together carefully selected, fragile ingredients. The goal is to create just the right balance of good taste and in the case of scents, a good smell. When AXE set out to formulate their new AXE YOU fragrance they went straight back to olfactory master, and expert perfumer, Ann Gottlieb. You may not recognize her on sight, but you surely know her blockbuster fragrance, Calvin Klein Obsession, as well as her other AXE classics. We caught up with Ann for a behind-the-scenes look on how the magic happens.We would love a cheat sheet on how a fragrance is made. How does it all start? We start with an olfactive vision based on the concept and then translate the images into scent. The fragrance vision is shared with perfumers and they then interpret it how they perceive it. Several fragrance ideas are then shown to us. Until we find the signature that achieves the brief and meets our expectations from an olfactive standpoint, we could go through anywhere from five hundred to a thousand iterations before finalizing the scent that ultimately goes into the bottle.About how long does the whole process of creating a fragrance take?4-6 months.You are the olfactory force behind the evolution of the AXE guy. Is there a common ingredient or creative thread that runs through all of the scents? The secret here is a touch of vanilla, sometimes greater and sometimes more reduced but always present. It gives the fragrance an easy, approachable character that guys seem to love.We’ve been watching the AXE guy grow up and become more sophisticated. Now AXE YOU is here appealing to Gen Z. From a fragrance perspective, how is this guy different from the AXE guy of the 80’s? In the 80’s, the fragrances were created without regard for a specific target audience. Now so much more is known about who the consumer is and therefore fragrances are specifically targeted.Are there specific notes that can make a fragrance smell more youthful? Generally, fresher notes such as citruses and fruits tend to have a youthful impact on a fragrance. In the case of YOU, it is the freshness, which comes from the coriander leaves and black basil. The inclusion of vanilla is also very meaningful to this target.What was your inspiration for this fragrance? Which parts of the brief were you most excited to bring to life?We took our inspiration from the woody, amber-y fragrances from the premium end of the fragrance market and Axe-ified it to be appropriate to our target audience. The concept behind YOU is that it would be a fragrance that adapts to each person’s body chemistry. Watching that come to life was very exciting.What is the best way, wear and how much body spray should be applied for it to smell its best?Moderation is always recommended when using a body spray – say AXE when you spray AXE. It can always be layered to achieve greater strength, but if too much is applied at once it can become quite overpowering.I have to ask, do you have a favorite? My favorite Axe fragrance is probably the most recent one on which I worked because I really like them all. If you are asking in regards to my personal fragrance, I would say it was Obsession because it was my first one and always has a special place in my heart.

Call for Volunteers for Titanic Commemorative Events

first_imgPeople interested in volunteering for Titanic commemorative events in Halifax Regional Municipality in April are encouraged to sign up online. “Nova Scotia has a strong tradition of volunteers coming forward to support key events in our communities,” said David Wilson, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “Once again, volunteers will play a large role in helping host commemorative events for Nova Scotians and international visitors.” A new online tool developed by Events Nova Scotia allows people to sign up for events, create a user profile and indicate personal skill sets and available dates and times for volunteering. “The Nova Scotia Volunteer Tool allows us to capitalize on our strong event-driven volunteer community by matching volunteers with events happening throughout the province,” said Grant MacDonald, director, Events Nova Scotia. “Experienced and enthusiastic volunteers are critical to the success of any major event and this tool gives events such as Titanic 100 a unique solution to attract the talent they need.” A limited number of volunteer positions are available to help greet visitors, provide event information and offer operations support. Titanic anniversary events April 14 and 15 include The Gathering, a walking, candle-lit procession from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic to the Grand Parade; Titanic Eve – Night of the Bells, an evening of interpretive presentations and live performances at the Grand Parade; and the Titanic Spiritual Ceremony, an interfaith memorial service at Fairview Lawn Cemetery. Other events will take place the week before the anniversary. “Titanic 100 is delighted to partner with Events Nova Scotia to provide volunteers with an accessible way to sign up for events,” said Jennifer Stewart, volunteer co-ordinator, Titanic 100. “We look forward to welcoming new and veteran volunteers as we continue to prepare for events in April.” People interested in volunteering for morning, afternoon or evening shifts from April 7 to 15 can apply online at the Events Nova Scotia website at www.eventsnovascotia.com/nsvolunteertool .last_img read more

Water battles with elephants kick off Thailands New Year

first_imgAyutthaya: Elephants with hearts and flowers painted on their bodies sprayed water at revellers celebrating Thailand’s traditional new year Thursday, in an annual event which has animal protection groups crying foul over animal cruelty. In Thailand’s former capital Ayutthaya, a tourist hotspot famed for its ancient temple ruins, more than a dozen elephants walked along the streets with their handlers on their backs, splashing and spraying water at locals and foreigners under a blistering sun. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe soaking by the pachyderms kicks off a weekend of festivities for Songkran, the traditional Buddhist new year celebration which officially begins on April 13. Revellers “can come to pay respects to Buddha and offer alms to monks in the morning and in the afternoon play water with the elephants,” said Laithongren Meepan, owner of the Ayutthaya Elephant Camp. “(Using their trunks to spray water) is the elephants’ natural way of playing,” he added. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsTraditionally marked by paying respects to elders and sprinkling water over Buddha figures at local temples, the Songkran holiday has largely evolved into a raucous water fight. Locals and foreigners armed with water guns and protective googles engage in soggy street parties, bringing much of the country to a standstill. “In other provinces, they have foam parties. But in Ayutthaya, you can celebrate Songkran with the elephants,” Laithongren said. Their handlers, known as mahouts, have trained the giant mammals to do tricks like lifting their front foot in greeting or gyrating their bodies to music as if they were dancing — much to the delight of revellers. Such practices are “cruel”, said Tom Taylor of Wildlife Friend Foundation Thailand, which rescues and rehabilitates domesticated elephants. “Forcing the elephants to perform unnatural behaviours is normally done through fear using a sharp tool called a bull hook,” Taylor told AFP. His organisation allows 24 rescued elephants to roam, bathe and forage freely, while tourists can learn about how the mammals should be treated with respect — “not chained up, beaten or ridden”, he said.last_img read more

Nepal UN agency stresses urgent funding needs to get food to earthquake

“We in no way want a lack of resources to force us to limit the assistance we’re providing,” Richard Ragan, who is coordinating WFP’s relief operation, said from Kathmandu. “The people of Nepal are resilient, but we can’t expect families to be living in the rubble of their homes, with little food, no roof over their head and the monsoons coming,” he said. After the initial focus in the relief effort on search and rescue, food has become an increasingly urgent need, WFP said. Thus far, the Programme has distributed food for 300,000 people and is bringing in more helicopters and engaging multiple fleets of small trucks to get supplies to hard-hit rural areas. It is also opening a land route from India to take pressure off Kathmandu airport.But WFP’s emergency operations are only four per cent funded, with much of the food distributions and common services provided to date enabled by internal resources which are reaching their limit. Funded entirely by voluntary contributions from governments, companies and private individuals, WFP has appealed for $116.5 million to provide food for 1.4 million people over the next three months. Many of those affected in the most remote rural areas are subsistence farmers who lost the crops that were harvested just before the quake hit, WFP said. Families urgently need food to carry them over until the next harvest while they rebuild their lost livelihoods. It is vital that the response from the international community matches the immense needs of the people of Nepal.On 25 April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Nepal, killing thousands while limiting access to food and leaving some 3.5 million in need of food assistance. An estimated 8 million people across the country’s Western and Central Regions are affected by the disaster, including its largest cities, Kathmandu and Pokhara. read more

Opinion Loss of Noah Brown a blow but OSU has adequate replacements

Noah Brown (80) during a game against Illinois on November 1, 2014. Credit: Lantern File PhotoOn Wednesday night, Ohio State’s practice was halted early when sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown suffered a serious injury, later confirmed by an OSU spokesman to be a broken left leg that will cost the wideout the entire 2015 season.A standout in practices this offseason, Brown had essentially locked up his spot as one of the core wideouts in rotation. Many expected a breakout season from the 6-foot-2, 222-pound sophomore. Brown even dropped weight so he’d be a faster, better-rounded receiver that’d be capable of taking on a bigger role in OSU’s offense.Given the current news, it looks like Brown will have to wait another year to take on that role.Who will be stepping into his shoes is a whole new concern all on its own. Considering the Week One suspensions that were handed out in late July to redshirt sophomore Jalin Marshall and junior Dontre Wilson, both H-backs, as well as redshirt senior wideout Corey Smith, Brown’s injury only complicates matters for coach Urban Meyer and his staff.Yet, there are still plenty of options to turn to.With redshirt junior Michael Thomas already penciled in as the first-string wideout on the depth chart, seemingly all other slots below him are up for grabs as the Sept. 7 opener at Virginia Tech draws closer.A player whose career started out rocky because of injury issues, redshirt freshman Johnnie Dixon could fill in for Brown quite nicely. The former four-star receiver out of West Palm Beach, Florida, entered last season surrounded by hype and lofty expectations before knee surgery effectively ended those dreams early on. If healthy, Dixon can be a difference maker in the Buckeyes’ spread offense with his blazing deep-threat speed.A popular candidate who will likely be given the bulk of the work after Thomas is redshirt senior quarterback-turned-receiver Braxton Miller. The two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year brings game-changing versatility and athletic capabilities unlike any other player on OSU’s roster. In other words, when Miller is on the field, there’s always a chance for a either a big play or a touchdown.Meyer all but guaranteed that Miller would start against the Hokies at the conclusion of practice on Saturday, saying that his “plan is to try to get him ready to do that.”Behind Thomas, Dixon and Miller sits a group of young playmakers filled with nothing but potential. Another converted quarterback, freshman Torrance Gibson, is learning the position and is off to a quick start in fall camp.Redshirt freshmen Terry McLaurin and Parris Campbell round out the replacement options. However, the coaching staff may lean toward giving significant minutes to more experienced players like sophomore H-back and backup running back Curtis Samuel, who spent a lot of time this offseason splitting out as a receiver.In any case, there’s ample time for Meyer and his staff to figure things out. Putting together a cohesive, winning combination of pass-catchers will be of the utmost importance when facing a defense of Virginia Tech’s caliber.However unfortunate it might be, Brown’s injury is not a terribly crushing blow to the Buckeyes’ offense. The team still has strong candidates to replace Brown. Maybe the most unfortunate part of the injury is that the Scarlet and Gray will have to wait another full year to get a chance to see the player coaches were setting up for a breakout season. read more

14 incredible minutes of Bioshock Infinite

first_imgIf you’re eagerly awaiting Bioshock Infinite as much as we are, this 14-minute feature from GameTrailers doesn’t disappoint. If you’re not sure what all of the fuss is about, now you’ll get a chance to see. GameTrailers went behind the scenes with Bioshock Infinite at E3, and they’ve finally released the gameplay footage captured during their closed-door briefings.Over the course of the video we’re introduced to your own character, Booker DeWitt, a rough, shady character with some gambling debts on a mercenary mission to rescue Elizabeth, a girl with extraordinary powers to bend and manipulate space around her. You’re dropped into the middle of the action, while you and Elizabeth hunt for supplies and try to make your way to Comstock House, where presumably you’ll find answers and a way out of the floating city of Columbia.You also get the opportunity to meet Elizabeth’s guardian, the Songbird – the strong and bird-like protector that makes the Big Daddy from Bioshock and Bioshock 2 look like a pushover. You get an idea for exactly how powerful he is, and exactly how dangerous it would be to take him on directly. He also seems to have a complicated relationship with Elizabeth, which we assume we’ll learn more about when the game is released.The video also introduces us to the Vox Populi, a resistance group that’s directly and violently opposed to the Jeffersonian administration of Columbia. As you fight through the Vox Populi and try to get Elizabeth to safety, there’s a chance to see Elizabeth’s powers in action, check out all of the weapons you’ll pick up as you travel through Columbia, and get a really great view of the game’s Skyline system.The Skyline system is the mechanic that will help you traverse the open world in Bioshock Infinite. Using a hand-held hook of sorts, you’ll be able to ride the rollercoaster-style cables and lines that connect the floating islands and buildings that make up the massive city.Explanations aside however, the video is something that has to be seen to be believed. Bioshock Infinite is scheduled for release in 2012, and will land on the PlayStation 3, XBox 360, and the PC.Read more at GameTrailerslast_img read more

Audi can help you catch the next traffic light in four new

first_img 26 Photos 1 Audi 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More From Roadshow Commentcenter_img Audi E-Tron GT concept on the streets of Los Angeles Since debuting its Traffic Light Information system way back in 2016, Audi has been slowly establishing partnerships with local municipalities to bring it to more intersections in more places. Today, Audi is announcing another four cities in the US, effectively doubling the number of traffic lights that it can monitor here. The TLI system relies on vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications to wirelessly send the timing of a municipality’s traffic lights directly to the car using its integrated LTE connectivity. The car then uses that information to say, if you’re waiting at a red light, how much longer it will stay red. Or, if you’re approaching a “stale” green light that’s about to change, the car can tell you that you’re not going to make it, meaning you might as well just coast to a stop and save both some gas and your brakes. The timers and instructions appear on both Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system and on the heads-up display, if equipped, letting drivers know whether they have time to queue up another playlist before the light turns green, or if they should stop rocking and get ready to roll. The four new cities going live today are Denver, Colorado; White Plains, New York; Gainesville, Florida and Orlando, Florida. That’s a total of 13 cities in the US where the service works, or some 4,700 intersections. If you find yourself commuting through one of those 13, then lucky you, but you will need to pay for the privilege of receiving that sweet metadata. TLI is part of Audi’s Connect Prime services package, which costs $199 for six months or $499 for 18 months. You do, at least, get the first six months free.  Share your voice Tags Auto Tech Audilast_img read more

Stranger Things 3 turning Netflix ratings records Upside Down

first_imgAccording to Netflix, that 40.7 million viewership number is more than any other Netflix film or series earned in its first four days.

Powerful storm hits Southern California

first_imgIn this 2 Feb. photo released by Santa Barbara County Fire, a large stone pine tree believed to be 100-years-old came down into this Santa Barbara, California, home during Saturday`s powerful winter storm. Photo: APThe second in a string of powerful storms battered California in the USA on Saturday, shutting key highways after water and mud rushed into lanes from bare hillsides in wildfire burn areas where thousands of residents were under evacuation orders.Flash flood warnings were issued for huge swaths of Southern California and forecasters said the system brought more than 4 inches (10 centimetres) of rain at lower elevations and several feet of snow in the mountains, where whiteout conditions closed roads.A wind gust in Santa Barbara County topped 80 mph (128 kph) as the storm moved south and at one point dropped more than a half-inch (1.27 centimetres) of rain in five minutes. Trees and power lines were down across the region.In Malibu, where the Woolsey fire last year destroyed homes and burned hillsides bare, officials closed Pacific Coast Highway and many other roadways after mud carried trees and rocks into lanes. Residents whose homes survived the flames barricaded their properties with sandbags to protect their properties from floodwaters.Carol Cavella was evacuated during the November fire and again Saturday when the creek behind her house threatened to overflow and inundate her backyard.The 86-year-old put her cat in the car and drove to a coffee shop on higher ground, her son-in-law, Warren Bowman said.”She does not scare easily, but she got a little scared watching that water rise,” Bowman said. He was trying to convince her to come to his house in Los Angeles but she said she’d rather wait to see if the waters recede and she can return home.The California Department of Transportation said Saturday night in a tweet that the southbound lanes of US 101, a vital route between Los Angeles and points north and west, have been reopened, while the northbound lanes of the highway remain closed from State Route 150 to Milpas.Earlier Saturday, in the Montecito area of Santa Barbara County, several miles of US 101 were closed because of flooding.Elsewhere in the county, evacuations were ordered or recommended for neighborhoods near the Thomas, Whittier and Sherpa fire scars.”This is a dangerous situation,” the National Weather Service said, warning that the high rates of rain could send boulders sluicing down denuded hillsides along with the mud and debris.It has only been a little over a year since a downpour on the huge Thomas Fire burn scar unleashed a massive debris flow that destroyed or damaged hundreds of homes in the seaside community of Montecito. The disaster killed 21 people, and two others have never been found.Rescue crews scrambled Saturday to pluck motorists from cars caught in rising waters, said Mike Eliason, a spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department. He urged drivers who come upon flooded intersections to find alternate routes.”Turn around. Driving through is going to be a costly error in judgment,” he said. “It’s just not worth it.”Multiple accidents were reported on slick highways, including a crash on Interstate 5 that killed a volunteer member of a sheriff’s search and rescue team, and injured several others.The team from Ventura County was on its way to a training exercise when members stopped to help at the scene of a single-vehicle rollover crash.An overturned vehicle is seen at a scene of a fatal accident, where a volunteer member of the Ventura County search and rescue team was killed, along Interstate Highway 5 south of Pyramid Lake, California on 2 February. Photo: APA minivan carrying a family was travelling too fast for the wet conditions, lost control and plowed into members of the team, Los Angeles County fire Capt. Tony Imbrenda said. Nine people were transported to hospitals, including three members of the team. The victim, Jeff Dye, was a volunteer with the Fillmore Mountain Search and Rescue Team, the sheriff’s department said.”This is a very unfortunate situation that could’ve been avoided,” Imbrenda said, warning motorists to slow down in the rain.In the Holy Jim fire area southeast of Los Angeles, where an August blaze scoured tens of thousands of acres in the Cleveland National Forest, volunteers using heavy equipment removed debris and deepened a creek bed to help prevent flooding.The National Park Service warned visitors to Yosemite National Park of possible road closures and advised drivers to bring tire chains in the event of snow or icy conditions.Winter storm warnings were in place for the Sierra Nevada along with avalanche warnings on the Nevada side of the range. The Sierra is already loaded with snow from a series of storms in January. The weather service said areas could see accumulations of up to 10 feet (3 meters) over the next few days.The weather service lifted flash-flood watches for areas burned by the Mendocino Complex, Camp and Carr wildfires in Northern California. About an inch (2.5 centimeters) of rain was recorded in the San Francisco Bay Area before the storm moved south early Saturday.A weaker storm soaked much of the state on Thursday Two cold weather systems will follow on Sunday and Monday, bringing additional widespread showers and snow, forecasters said.last_img

Costa Rica approves seven more agreements on taxinformation sharing

first_imgNo related posts. As lawmakers ended their 2013 session Thursday, the Finance Ministry reported that the legislature approved seven new agreements on the sharing of tax information with several Nordic countries.During the month of December, Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly approved accords to exchange tax information with Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Norway, Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.“The legislative approval of these seven Information Exchange Agreements represents a great advancement in international accountability and an important commitment by the country in terms of fiscal transparency and automatic exchange of information relevant for tax purposes,” said acting Finance Minister Jose Luis Araya, in a statement Friday.Earlier this year, Costa Rica signed an agreement to share information with the United States about the financial holdings of U.S. citizens living in order to enforce the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, FATCA.The recently approved tax transparency agreements come as President Laura Chinchilla’s administration works to prepare Costa Rica’s application to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a club of many of the world’s developed countries.In the past, both the International Monetary Fund and the OECD have accused Costa Rica of being a tax haven.Since 2009, Costa Rica has signed similar agreements with Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, Mexico and the Netherlands.

Volcanic ash disrupts flights to Bali

first_imgVirgin Blue, Jetstar and Cathay Pacific are among the airlines forced to cancel flights to and from Bali yesterday after ash from a volcano eruption blew too close to Denpasar airport. Earlier this morning Virgin Blue advised that it had cancelled all flights to and from Bali over the next 24 hours as a precautionary method while Mount Bromo’s ash continued to move towards the runways. “Guests currently in Denpasar with bookings which were scheduled to depart within the next 24 hours are requested to stay in their current accommodation and await further advice from Virgin Blue,” the airline said. Jetstar Airways was also forced to cancel up to five flights to and from Sydney, Darwin and Perth to Denpasar. “Safety of our passengers and crew is Jetstar’s number one priority and as a result the airline has cancelled tonight’s flights between Australia and Denpasar (Bali).” Cathay Pacific Airways noted flight disruptions, with one flight en-route from Hong Kong to Bali forced to turn back around. Cathay Pacific postponed its Denpasar to Hong Kong service from yesterday afternoon to Friday 4.45pm Hong Kong time. Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre meteorologist Billy Lynch said the volcano could cause airline disruptions for days, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.”If it continues to erupt and the wind continues to blow the ash towards the airports, there could be disruptions,” Mr Lynch said. The volcano located in Java, Indonesia began erupting over a week ago and has been described as “moderate” compared to the eruption of Indonesia’s Merapi volcano last year.
