(n.) A dramatic actor.
(n.) One who plays on an instrument of music.
(n.) A gamester; a gambler.
(1) Schneiderlin, valued at an improbable £27m, and the currently injured Jay Rodriguez are wanted by their former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs, but the chairman Ralph Krueger has apparently called a halt to any more outgoings, saying: “They are part of the core that we have decided to keep at Southampton.” He added: “Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin are not for sale and they will be a part of our club as we enter the new season.” The new manager Ronald Koeman has begun rebuilding by bringing in Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pellè from the Dutch league and Krueger said: “We will have players coming in, we will make transfers to strengthen the squad.
(2) As players, we want what's right, and we feel like no one in his family should be able to own the team.” The NBA has also said that Shelly Sterling should not remain as owner.
(3) The playing fields on which all those players began their journeys have been underfunded for years and are now facing a renewed crisis because of cuts to local authority budgets.
(4) A man named Moreno Facebook Twitter Pinterest Italy's players give chase to an inscrutable Byron Moreno, whose relationship with the country was only just beginning.
(5) The former Stoke City manager Pulis had reportedly been left frustrated by the club failing to push through deals for various players he targeted to strengthen the Palace squad.
(6) DATA Modern football data analysis has its origins in a video-based system that used computer vision algorithms to automatically track players.
(7) Of course they should play if the players still want to.
(8) The others were two Britons, Mark Cox and John Barrett (now both BBC commentators) and the US player Jim McManus.
(9) But still we have to fight for health benefits, we have to jump through loops … Why doesn’t the NFL offer free healthcare for life, especially for those suffering from brain injury?” The commissioner, however, was quick to remind Davis that benefits are agreed as part of the collective bargaining process held between the league and the players’ union, and said that they had been extended during the most recent round of negotiations.
(10) Huth, a Stoke player for more than five years, has made only one Premier League appearance since suffering a knee injury in November 2013.
(11) He is a leader and helps manage the defence, while Pablo Armero can be a bit of a loose cannon but he is certainly a talented player.
(12) Uruguay's coach, Oscar Tabárez, had insisted yesterday that his player should face only a one-match ban.
(13) The spirit is great here, the players work very hard, we kept the belief when we were in third place and now we are here.
(14) He said he was appalled by the player's accusations and plans to meet with Martin on Wednesday at an undisclosed location.
(15) This may have been a pointed substitute programme, management perhaps imagining a future where electronic presenters will simply download their minds to MP3-players.
(16) Nwakali, an attacking midfielder, was the player of the Under-17 World Cup in Chile last year, which Nigeria won, and at which his team-mate Chukwueze, a winger, also impressed.
(17) Twellman has steadily grown in confidence as he settles into his role, though whether as a player or as an advocate he was never shy about voicing his opinions.
(18) "I have to say that I have been a Chelsea player since 2004 and I have never had six minutes in my favour when I was losing.
(19) I would like to see much more of that money go down to the grassroots.” The Premier League argues that its focus must remain on investing in the best players and facilities and claims it invests more in so-called “good causes” than any other football league.
(20) It’s not just that Lester was one of the first signs that the Red Sox’s commitment to players from their own system was starting to pay off.
(n.) One who selects.
(1) Using consumer survey data from the Missouri Managed Health Care Project, we examined characteristics and use experiences of assignees compared with selectors.
(2) The use of this selector creates a possibility of reducing the increase in the synchronizing pulse with respect to the channel pulses and eliminating tuning the transmitter's modulator and receiver's selector to each other.
(3) The optimum threshold values for this selector are as follows: 12 ms in the rate and 14 ms in the duration.
(4) The members of the main feeding categories (Hofmann, Stewart 1972): concentrate selector, roughage eater and intermediate feeder did not differ much in the ultrastructure of the fundic stomach epithelium but showed greater differences with respect to the height and shape of the glandular tubules and the arrangement of the epithelial cell types.
(5) The DNaseI footprint of this protein complex with the enhancer overlapped a sequence, AGGAGGA, found within the binding site for a protein that interacts with the chicken beta globin promoter and enhancer, termed the stage selector element.
(6) These results support the selector gene model of development (Garcia-Bellido, 1975) and emphasize that collaboration between polyclones is important in pattern formation.
(7) But the East Ender will not compete over the one lap in Daegu, while the runner-up – Shana Cox – only qualifies for a British passport from November of this year and so all three British places are up for grabs as the selectors meet to decide who will travel to South Korea this summer.
(8) In Drosophila embryos, anterior-posterior positional identities are set and maintained by the expression boundaries of homeotic selector genes.
(9) Use of the full panel to grade all abstracts was very expensive, but it could be replaced, without unacceptable injustice, by dividing the work randomly among groups of three selectors.
(10) Using the selector method on serial plastic sections, we determine the number of epithelial or interstitial cells per volume (Nv) of total epithelium or interstitium.
(11) So this element is likely to be a target of homeotic genes, which would define the beta 3 tubulin gene as a realisator gene under the control of selector genes.
(12) A monitor useful for checks of the energy selector scale of medical electron accelerators was developed and tested.
(13) Indeed, c-Jun and c-Fos served as selectors of hormone responsiveness: the composite GRE was inactive in the absence of c-Jun, whereas it conferred a positive glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun, and a negative glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun and relatively high levels of c-Fos.
(14) The noise immunity of the units can be considerably improved by means of the R-wave selector that discriminates signals by rate and duration of the pulse decay (RS-slope).
(15) The homeotic selector gene Deformed (Dfd) is required to specify the identity of head segments during Drosophila development.
(16) Two different selectors are described: a simple one for two different pulse widths and a more complicated one with a counter for any setting of pulse width in the system.
(17) We show that the eve gene contains a homeo box and hence is related structurally to the pair-rule gene fushi tarazu and to homeotic selector genes.
(18) In order to improve synchronization in biotelemetry systems, a relative pulse-width selector was designed.
(19) Binding of selector proteins to regulatory DNA sequences is mediated by an evolutionary conserved protein domain, the homeodomain.
(20) Advantages of the selectors are compact size, reproducibility of size-selection performance based on the high precision of drill manufacture and use, flexibility in design and layout, and manufacturing ease in a machine shop.
