Exclusive Neil Adams is doing valuable work for Norwich City as the Canaries' loans manager. Picture: Paul Chesterton/Focus Images ©Focus Images Limited www.focus-images.co.uk +447814 482222 Loans manager Neil Adams is orchestrating a quiet revolution at Norwich City – and his work is bearing real fruit. There was scepticism around Adams’ return to work following the end of his difficult spell as manager back at the start of 2015, alongside questions over how his new role would manifest itself once it begun. But the answers are now there for all to see, after 12 months that included a string of successful loans for City’s next generation – and some genuine excitement over what they could bring to the party when the players return for pre-season at the end of June. “You try to be the best at whatever you do – make me a window cleaner and I’ll try to be the best window cleaner there is,” smiled Adams. “Something I’ve … [Read more...] about ‘Let’s go and make it the best we can’ – Adams out to make City a loan-market leader

After Betty Shelby was charged with first-degree manslaughter following the fatal shooting of Terence Crutcher in 2016, she was told her career in law-enforcement was over."I said, 'No, it's not,'" Shelby told the Tulsa World on Wednesday. "It just wasn't something I could even fathom. I said that I will make it through this and I will be back."Shelby's optimism vanished when the Tulsa Police Department moved her to an administrative position after a jury acquitted her in the high-profile case last May.She resigned two months later and released a statement saying that sitting behind a desk wasn't for her. "I did feel like my career was done," Shelby said. "I thought the best I could hope for was being behind these four locked doors in a small office isolated from officers and the public."But now — a year after her acquittal — Shelby is thriving in her new role as a Rogers County deputy, according to her boss and one of her most ardent supporters. Despite the … [Read more...] about ‘I am where I belong’: A year after acquittal in manslaughter case, Betty Shelby says she’s found acceptance as Rogers County deputy
1. Up and at it – what is your morning routine? I am NOT a morning person – I never call meetings or book appointments until after noon. I usually get up around 8am-8:30am and head straight for the kettle and for the first cup of tea of the day which is always the best one. After breakfast I sit in my armchair and take time out to pray. Prayer is the foundation of my day, always beginning with thankfulness. In the Bible, Psalm107 encourages us to ‘Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His steadfast love endures forever'. I have found this to be true, even in very difficult times. Focusing on the good things in life and being thankful is medicine for the soul.2. What might you eat in a typical working day for...Breakfast? One slice of toasted wheaten bread and one scrambled egg. Lunch? A sandwich at 12:30pm while watching Loose Women on TV. I only eat high fibre brown bread and keep my sandwich filling to salad, avocado, tomatoes and similar. Evening meal? I hate … [Read more...] about Gospel singer Marie Lacey: At 61, I could fill a book with my guilty pleasures

Motoring by Press Association 05/04/2018, 10:34 am FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter The UK’s new car market shrank by 15.7 per cent in March compared with the same period in 2017. It marks a year in decline for the country’s new car sales, as a variety of factors including Brexit uncertainty, changes to vehicle tax rates and the so-called ‘demonisation of diesel’ cause buyers to hold off on upgrading their vehicle. Sales so far in 2018 are down by 12.4 per cent compared with the first quarter of 2017. The figures, released today by industry body the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), show that demand for diesel vehicles fell by 37 per cent, but petrol and alternatively fuelled vehicles saw sales rise by 0.5 per cent and 5.7 per cent respectively. Of the latter, plug-in hybrids fuelled the most growth – sales rose by 18.2 per cent. Despite the drop, though, the SMMT said … [Read more...] about New car sales fall again in March to make it a year of decline
► CAR reviews new BMW i3 REX► We live with i3 Range Extender► 94Ah EV battery range on test Almost exactly one year after it arrived on CAR’s fleet, the slate grey BMW i3 has gone, leaving me with pangs of loss. It didn’t set my trousers on fire dynamically, nor can I fondly recall individual drives, but the i3 fostered a new type of connection.It’s the modernism at the heart of the i3 where the magic happens. When you open the pillarless doors and sink into the minimalist cabin you feel good – it’s decluttered, and roomy with that lack of central transmission tunnel. Optional £780 twin sunroofs bathe the recycled dashboard in daylight, while the suicide rear doors draw more interest than ire (the fronts must be open before the rears).We regularly carried four passengers – this is a roomy car for something less than four metres long. A practical small electric car? Nearly. There’s no fifth … [Read more...] about A year-long test of a BMW i3 Range Extender: what did we learn?
Today’s post serves as a couple of milestones at TTAC (for me, anyway); 200 articles written, and a year of Rare Rides. Since I did not plan this in any way or think about it in advance, I thought we might make this post a bit special. Bringing us back to the very first Rare Rides entry of one year ago, we have another concept car Ghia designed for Ford which never saw the production green light. Presenting the 1983 Lincoln Quicksilver. While the Probe concept from 1979 was all about the angular wedge, the Quicksilver offers a much smoother teardrop design to carry out its sedan mission. More on that in a moment. Though several designs produced by Ghia wore a Probe name, the Quicksilver was a one-off for the Lincoln brand. For years, Ford was keen on investigating what aerodynamics could do for design, which they’d prove three years after the Quicksilver with the production Taurus and light bar Sable (mmm). You might think underneath the sweeping lines of the body lies … [Read more...] about Rare Rides: A Year Later, Ghia’s 1983 Lincoln Quicksilver
For the vast majority of 2017, I’ve had a new Golf GTI on my driveway. Just before Christmas a Tornado Red Mk7 GTI Clubsport arrived, before being ‘swapped’ around Easter for a facelifted ‘Mk7.5’ GTI finished in Silver White Metallic. Thus, I’ve decided to label 2017 as my ‘year of Golf’. I went from one end of the GTI spectrum (ignoring the ultra-focused, ultra-limited Clubsport S of course) right to the other, and learned a hell of a lot in the process. Let me take you through it… More power is great, even if it isn’t necessary The whole point of the GTI is it exercises restraint while cars at the sharper end of the hot hatch descend into power-mad lunacy. We’re looking at the next Mercedes-AMG A45 packing over 400bhp, after all. The standard GTI then is a refreshing alternative, and really, its 228bhp is all you should need on the road. I said as much in my first Mk7.5 update, but it is worth pointing out a GTI with … [Read more...] about 6 Things I Learned From My ‘Year Of GTI’
My first car was hot. At least once or twice, in fact, worryingly hot, but maybe that’s not surprising when your first car is an older, high-mileage sport sedan. Beyond my incredible fortune at getting a car at all, my 1996 Audi A4 was attractive, fun to drive over the canyons to school, and well equipped—a previous owner installed an excessive eight-disc CD player in the trunk to complement the single-disc unit in the dash. Since my long-gone 1996 Audi left the dealership as a new car, the A4 has come to define the brand. As Audi’s resurgence in the U.S. continues, I’m spending a year with a 2017 Audi A4 2.0T to see how the car has matured over the years and whether it holds up to previous positive experiences we’ve had with this latest generation. What’s it like to own the second-place finisher of our recent luxury sport sedan comparison? We’ll have to find out. In that comparison, we lauded the 2017 A4 2.0T for a number of reasons including … [Read more...] about 2017 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Long-Term Arrival: A Year with a Sharp 3 Series Competitor
Jenson Button has been reflecting on his time in Formula 1 following his decision to step away from a full-time role this season. The 2009 World Champion took part in the Monaco Grand Prix as Fernando Alonso's stand-in and also featured in the Super GT Suzuka 1000km race, but the Brit believes he made the right call to take some time away from motorsport. "It has been lovely and it has been necessary as well," Button said at a media session at Suzuka, in his role as McLaren brand ambassador this weekend. "Lots of things have happened in my career that I have not had time to think about at the moment in time. "I've needed this year to sit down and have a little chat to myself about what has happened. It has been good. "Obviously I did the race in Monaco, the race we can forget about, but qualifying I loved. "Driving these monsters in Monaco…and the other race that really stands out is this one, driving a 2017 car must be pretty special. But do I miss F1? No. "I miss racing. I've … [Read more...] about Button ‘stayed a year too long’ in Formula 1
