Conte, who was cleared by a court of any wrongdoing in 2016, retorted by calling Mourinho a “little man”.– Sanchez is ‘phenomenal’ –Meanwhile, Mourinho, whose side host Stoke in the Premier League on Monday, has refused to rule out a January move for Alexis Sanchez, describing the Arsenal forward as a “phenomenal” player.But the United manager does not want to be drawn on his chances of beating Manchester City to a deal, saying it is not “ethical” to talk about another club’s player in such a way.City are favourites to sign Sanchez, who is out of contract at the end of this season and has made clear he has no intention of staying at Arsenal.Mourinho, whose squad has just returned from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai, said: “I don’t know if it’s ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs.“If somebody speaks of one of my players to tell we are interested, I wouldn’t be very happy.“Sanchez is an Arsenal player. Probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don’t think it’s correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.“At the general level, what I can say is myself and the Manchester United board, and the owners, we don’t believe a lot in the January market.“But in relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don’t say a word. The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player. Apart from that, he is an Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn’t say much more than this.”Share on: WhatsApp Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho on Friday said he felt “contempt” for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as their toxic public row continues to escalate.The Manchester United manager has traded insults with his Chelsea counterpart over the past two weeks, with their dispute becoming increasingly bitter.“I think when a person insults another you can expect a response. Or you can expect contempt,” Mourinho told reporters.“The first time he insulted me I had a response, a response that I know that touched the point where he really feels hurt.“Then he insulted me for a second time but now I change and now (I have) contempt. And for me contempt means the end of the story.”The enmity between the two men stretches back to early last season, with Mourinho accusing Conte of humiliating him with the scale of his celebrations as United fell to a 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in October 2016.The two managers have continued to snipe at each other since then, with Ander Herrera sent off during a bad-tempered FA Cup quarter-final in London last March, as Conte accused United of trying to stop Eden Hazard by fouling him repeatedly.Conte has also criticised United’s spending, while Mourinho even mocked the Chelsea head coach for having a hair transplant.However, their comments have acquired more bite lately, beginning when Mourinho implied that Conte was a “clown” for his dramatic touchline celebrations, although he later claimed he was not referring specifically to the Italian.Conte then accused the United manager of going senile, with Mourinho responding by referring to the four-month suspension that Chelsea’s manager received in 2012 for failing to report match-fixing while at Siena.

MEDIA CONTACTS • Feroza MohideenStatistics South Africa+27 12 310 8911 USEFUL LINKS • Statistics South Africa • ISI – 57th session • Durban International Convention CentreRELATED ARTICLES • Young statisticians gather in SA • SA tops for business travel • CTICC gets green makeoverJanine ErasmusThe 57th session of the International Statistical Institute (ISI) takes place in at the International Convention Centre in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, from 16 to 22 August, under the theme Statistics: Our Past, Present and Future.This is the first time in the ISI’s 122-year-old history that the gathering takes place on sub-Saharan African soil. The previous session took place in Lisbon, Portugal.Host countries are informed of their success six years ahead of their event, and South Africa received the green light in August 2003.The ISI is one of the world’s oldest scientific organisations. ISI sessions are held biennially and attract thousands of the world’s top statistical minds – typically the entire ISI membership.Here they share knowledge, experience and best practices with private, public, research and educational institutions, forming new collaborations on national and international level.About 10 000 delegates are expected to convene in Durban.Stronger African participationAfrica is currently seeing a surge in statistics-related activity, and the conference will go a long way towards elevating statistics in Africa to the global standard. It will also give Africa the chance to participate more fully in an ISI session and beyond that, the international statistical community. This is something that has not happened often enough in the past.“One of our challenges is ensuring the broadest participation of the African statistical community,” said ISI president Denise Lievesley, a social statistician by training. “Another is to provide space for intense deliberation on topics of relevance to the development discourse in Africa.”The Local Organising Committee (LOC) is chaired by Pali Lehohla, South Africa’s statistician-general, and includes representatives from Statistics South Africa, the country’s official statistics body, and academia. LOC member Prof Tim Dunne, of Cape Town University’s Statistical Sciences department, also serves on the ISI council.South Africa has been hard at work to encourage as many African countries as possible to participate fully in ISI 2009. This is the continent’s chance to show its statistical progress to the world in fields such as the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals, population censuses, and the development of statistical infrastructure which facilitates data-gathering to fight poverty.“The 57th session of the ISI will set the pace and agenda for detailed debates and discussion,” said Lehohla. “It will also feature an exciting ‘Proudly South African’ social programme and opportunities to learn about life in this diverse country.”Delegates will see how South Africa is using the opportunities for development presented by big international events, added Lehohla, especially with the 2010 Fifa World Cup less than a year away.Scientific programmeISI 2009 offers a broad scientific programme. Topics such as Statistics in Africa, Biostatistics in Health – the Case of HIV/AIDS, the role of chance in evolution, and energy statistics are just a few of the topics to be discussed in a series of more than 100 invited paper meetings.Some 25 short courses in statistical models and analysis are on offer during the session. They include courses on mentoring of young statisticians, professional ethics, internal and international migration, and training for teaching statistics in South Africa and Africa.A schedule of administrative meetings has been arranged for various branches within the ISI.Time for leisureSet as it is in such a beautiful country, the session would not be complete without a leisure component. A number of social events have been planned with the goal of introducing delegates to South Africa’s magnificent diversity of tradition and culture, as well as giving them a further chance to network.These include the opening ceremony and reception, a beach party, a dinner for the ladies of the session, as well as the statistician-general’s VIP dinner at the Sibaya casino just north of Durban, and the closing gala dinner.For those who can’t get enough of South Africa’s delights, several pre- and post-session tours are available. They include a birding safari to the Sani highlands in KwaZulu-Natal; a safari in South Africa’s world-famous Kruger Park; a trip along the picturesque Garden Route; and a tour through the Cape winelands.There are also a few full-day tours in and around Durban, for those who wish to experience more of the country but don’t have the time to indulge in one of the extended tours. These include day trips to the nearby Drakensberg mountains; a tour of Shakaland, domain of one of Africa’s most feared kings; the Hluhluwe game reserve, known for its white rhinos; and the KwaZulu-Natal battlefields, a poignant reminder of the fierce war fought at the turn of the 20th century between Zulus, Afrikaners and British.Finally, a number of half-day tours are also available, designed to give delegates a taste of the city of Durban and the KwaMashu township.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Saturday succeeded in steadying his boat for some time after leaders of the Naga People’s Front were assured of fulfilment of their demands in the presence of the BJP’s national secretary in-charge of the Northeast, Ram Madhav.The NPF, which has four MLAs in Manipur, has been a major partner of the Biren Singh government formed on March 15, 2017.Last week, the NPF had held a meeting at its headquarters in Kohima and after that the party’s national president T.R. Zeliang said, “We have agreed in principle to part ways with the BJP in Manipur.”Manipur NPF unit president Awangbou Newmai, who is also an MLA, had said, “Our party is no longer a partner in Nagaland anyway. But the Manipur final decision would be taken by our president once the election process is over.”Ministerial berth The NPF, said sources, is not happy with just one of its MLAs getting a ministerial post in Manipur.The National People’s Party, which too has four MLAs in the State, was given four Cabinet posts. In fact, one of its MLAs was made the Deputy Chief Minister.Mr. Newmai said, “It is discriminatory since the agreement at the time of the formation of the coalition Ministry was that two of our MLAs would be made Ministers while the remaining two would be accommodated with the rank and status of Ministers.”12 MinistersNow that Mr. Biren Singh has given his word to the dissenting NPF leaders, the party may not pull out of the government.In the 60-member Manipur House, the Chief Minister is allowed to have 12 members in the Council of Ministers.

Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien instructs his players during a game against Eastern Michigan Sept. 7 at Beaver Stadium. PSU won, 45-7.Credit: Courtesy of MCTAfter nearly two years of heartbreak, allegations and eventual unprecedented sanctions handed down by the NCAA, things might be looking up for the Penn State football program.In the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal, college sport’s governing body ordered the university to pay $60 million over five years to a special endowment created to fund programs preventing child sexual abuse, initiated a four-year bowl ban, vacated victories between 1998-2011 and took away scholarships. A bit of that changed Tuesday.PSU initially was only going to have 65 football scholarships beginning in 2014, but instead will receive 75 that year, 80 in 2015 and the full 85 in 2016.That could go a long way to restoring a program and school that was ravished by the scandal, potentially bringing it back to Big Ten relevance quickly.“We’re happy right now for our players; our student-athletes that are here and our football program,” PSU coach Bill O’Brien said Tuesday on the Big Ten teleconference. “They’re a resilient bunch of kids… We’re just trying to take it one day at a time and working as hard as we can and continuing every single day to try to do the right thing.”O’Brien is 11-5 in just over a year as the head man of the Nittany Lions and is scheduled to lead them to Indiana for its Big Ten opener Saturday. PSU fell at home to Ohio State 35-23, in 2012 and is scheduled to visit Columbus at the end of October.The NCAA announcing the restoration of the scholarships to the program could help to improve recruiting in the immediate future, but O’Brien said his strategy for attracting players to State College is between him and his coaching staff.“Obviously, we’re able to sign some more guys and be able to have a roster of 75 scholarship players next year so things will change and we’ll see how that goes,” O’Brien said. “Right now we’re not going to comment on that or talk about that. That’s between the staff, myself and that’s about it.”The Nittany Lions and Buckeyes sport two of the largest stadiums in college football, and the rivalry that has ensued within the confines of each has yielded nothing short of exciting contests. OSU leads the overall series 14-8, with many of the matchups occurring when both teams were ranked.OSU coach Urban Meyer’s only time facing PSU was the victory at Beaver Stadium last season.Meyer was not asked about the reduced sanctions Tuesday on the Big Ten teleconference.OSU is set to open conference play Saturday in Columbus against No. 23 Wisconsin at 8 p.m. The Buckeyes will take on Penn State in Columbus Oct. 26.
