Briton on missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 identified as Chi-Man Choi

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Sarah Spickernell Sunday 28 December 2014 11:24 am 162 people were aboard the AirAsia flight that went missing this morning as it flew from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore.Flight QZ8501 lost contact with air traffic control shortly after take-off, after requesting a “deviation” from the planned flight path dues to bad weather. The plane was an Airbus A320-200. The airline initially released a statement listing the nationalities of the passengers as French, Malaysian, South Korean, Singaporean and Indonesian, but the UK Foreign Office has since confirmed that a British National was also present.”We are aware of an incident regarding AirAsia flight QZ8501,” said an FCO spokesman.”We have been informed by the local authorities that one British national was on board. Their next of kin has been informed, and we stand ready to provide consular assistance.”The British Embassy in Jakarta has been working with local authorities to establish details, and has now identified the British national as Chi-Man Choi. His family has been informed, and it is thought that his two-year-old daughter was also on the plane with him. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDNational Penny For Seniors7 Discounts Seniors Only Get If They AskNational Penny For SeniorsUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirrorzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comFungus EliminatorIf You Have Toenail Fungus Try This TonightFungus Eliminator Sharecenter_img Briton on missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 identified as Chi-Man Choi Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapHarvey Weinstein to Be Extradited to California to Face Sexual AssaultThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Chelsea have more of the world’s most valuable players than any other club, according to new study

first_img Top 5 January buys whatsapp January spending over past 10 years January spending over past 10 years Three of the 10 most valuable players in the world currently ply their trade at Stamford Bridge, according to a new study from the CIES Football Observatory.Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Francesc Fabregas are all named in the top 10, alongside Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. No other club in Europe has as many players in the top 10 as the Blues. Robbie Keane (2009) £14,700,000 Jermain Defoe (2009)£14,430,000 Wilson Palacios (2009)£13,200,000 Alan Hutton (2008)£11,440,000 Jonathan Woodgate (2008)£9,500,000 Top 5 January buys Top 5 January buys Newcastle United January Transfer Window Find my team Yet that doesn’t mean big deals shouldn’t be expected this month. In the last two seasons over £100m has been spent in January. Furthermore, two of the 10 biggest January deals came last season (Nemanja Matic was a £22m buy for Chelsea, who sold Juan Mata to Manchester United for £39.4m), even after what was then the biggest summer window of all time. HOW MUCH IN £MILLION HAS BEEN SPENT IN THE LAST 12 YEARS? More money was spent last summer than in any previous transfer window, as Premier League clubs splashed almost £1bn on new players ahead of the current season. Never before has so much been spent across a full season, never mind a single window. With more time to plot, plan and purchase during the summer, it should be no surprise that on average only 19 per cent of transfers take place during the January window. Share TOP 5 SPENDING CLUBS IN JANUARY José Antonio Reyes (2004) £17,600,000 Andrey Arshavin (2009)£14,520,000 – Theo Walcott (2006)£9,240,000 Nacho Monreal (2013)£8,800,000 Emmanuel Adebayor (2006)£8,800,000 Since the departure of Tony Pulis and the arrival of Mark Hughes in the summer of 2013, Stoke’s transfer spending has become far more restrained than in their first few seasons in the Premier League. Don’t expect that to change much this month. The Potters have spent just £8.84m since Hughes has been in the dugout and have not traditionally been tempted into shopping sprees in January. Their biggest winter window signing came in their first season in the Premier League when James Beattie was bought for £3.52m. Stéphane Sessègnon (2011) £6,160,000 Andy Reid (2008)£5,280,000 Danny Graham (2013)£5,100,000 Alfred N’Diaye (2013)£4,140,000 Mart Poom (2003)£3,300,000 Top 5 January buys Top 5 January buys Not a fan of the January window, Arsene Wenger has often been more reluctant to spend as much as his contemporaries in the period. Since the window came into existence, seven clubs have spent more in January than the Gunners. Perhaps it’s no wonder Wenger is cautious in the market at this time of year. His two biggest January window signings – Jose Antonio Reyes and Andrey Arshavin – enjoyed patchy Arsenal careers at best. Arsenal have already spent around £90m this season – their biggest transfer outlay ever – but as they still look in need of reinforcements at the base of midfield and in defence, Wenger may feel the need to increase that total during the window. Aston Villa January spending over past 10 years If speculative internet rumours are to be believed, the football’s MVP could be on his way to Stamford Bridge in the near future. Fans were sent into a frenzy after a reportedly disaffected Messi failed to turn up for the Barcelona’s open training session and and followed Chelsea’s official account on Instagram.Although Uefa’s Financial Fair Play restrictions would almost certainly require Chelsea to sell before they could splash out on such a high-profile player, and Barcelona are unlikely to cash in while under transfer embargo in 2015, the Blues do have previous for spending big in the January transfer window.Since it first came into play in the Premier League in 2003, no one has spent more in January than the West London club who have shelled out a total of £217.54m across 12 windows.The biggest January deal of all time came when Chelsea bought Fernando Torres for £51m in 2011.Explore our interactive below to see how much each individual club has spent in January windows over the years. January spending over past 10 years Since the January window of 2011, when Aston Villa made Darren Bent the club’s record purchase, American owner Randy Lerner has reined in the spending at Villa Park. Villa are unlikely to return to the high-spending approach that defined Lerner’s early years at the club, yet as the lowest scorers in the league so far this season, they may well be on the lookout for increased firepower up front. Just so long as it comes at a cheaper cost than Darren Bent. Palace obliterated their January spending record last season, forking out £9.84m having only once before spent more than £1m in the window after years of dipping into and skirting around administration. New manager Alan Pardew will undoubtedly want a repeat this year, with Palace currently languishing in the relegation zone. Yet as the South London club have already spent around £2m to poach Pardew from Newcastle, he may not find he has too much to play with. January spending over past 10 years Tags: NULL The Facts and Figures Christopher Samba (2013) £13,200,000 Loïc Rémy (2013)£9,240,000 Bobby Zamora (2012)£5,100,000 Djibril Cissé (2012)£4,400,000 Nedum Onuoha (2012)£4,140,000 David Prutton (2003) £3,300,000 Vegard Forren (2013)£3,080,000 Nigel Quashie (2005)£2,770,000 Grzegorz Rasiak (2006)£2,640,000 Danny Higginbotham (2003)£1,980,000 Top 5 January buys Tuesday 6 January 2015 12:14 pm Shane Long (2014) £7,480,000 Nikica Jelavic (2014)£6,860,000 Jimmy Bullard (2009)£4,660,000 Robbie Brady (2013)£2,200,000 Kamil Zayatte (2009)£2,200,000 Crystal Palace Top 5 January buys Top 5 January buys The Toffees smashed their transfer record in the summer with the £31m purchase of Romelu Lukaku. Yet both the player and the team have failed to progress as expected this season – Everton are currently positioned in the bottom half of the league. Chairman Bill Kenwright has been reticent to spend in January in the past, and may prove even more unwilling to do so after their biggest-ever outlay in the summer. Arsenal James Beattie (2005) £7,920,000 Nikica Jelavic (2012)£5,810,000 Tim Howard (2007)£3,700,000 John Stones (2013)£3,080,000 Lee Carsley (2003)£2,510,000 January spending over past 10 years Top 5 January buys The Saints’ biggest January outlay came in the first ever window in 2003, when £5.28m was forked out on Danny Higginbotham and David Prutton. The club has not topped that since, but may be tempted into bringing extra bodies into a stretched squad that may find it hard to maintain the form from the first half of the season in the new year. In the last three seasons, City have spent just £2.9m in the January window. After making big purchases every summer, the club has rarely looked in need of reinforcements come the midpoint in the season. The Premier League holders’ most expensive January actually came back in 2009, when £45m was spent on players such as Craig Bellamy, Wayne Bridge and Shay Given. The calibre of City’s transfer targets have improved a bit since. James Beattie (2009) £3,520,000 Jack Butland (2013)£3,340,000 Asmir Begovic (2010)£3,300,000 Brek Shea (2013)£2,640,000 Matthew Etherington (2009)£2,640,000 Top 5 January buys Andy Carroll (2011) £36,080,000 Luis Suárez (2011)£23,320,000 Daniel Sturridge (2013)£13,200,000 Martin Skrtel (2008)£8,800,000 Coutinho (2013)£8,800,000 Top 5 January buys Sunderland January spending over past 10 years January spending over past 10 years January spending over past 10 years The Magpies’ third-biggest January under the notoriously thrifty Mike Ashley actually came in the January transfer window (2012/2013) when then-manager Alan Pardew was allowed to spend around £20m to fix a severely depleted squad. With Newcastle currently sitting comfortable in mid-table, Pardew’s replacement is unlikely to be permitted such a big kitty this year. Fans will arguably be more concerned with holding onto Moussa Sissoko than any potential additions this January. Now 12 years old, the January transfer window has evolved into one of the most important months in the football calendar, and the source of frenzied excitement for fans. Approximately £1.3bn has been spent in January windows by Premier League clubs since Fifa legislation shut off teams from buying new players from September to January and February to June. When once clubs could add new recruits at any stage during the season, they must now wait for their month-long Black Friday every January when players once again become available. whatsapp Tottenham Hotspur Not often tempted into a big January shop, the Baggies have spent just £12m in the window since it opened – less than they spent this summer alone. New boss Tony Pulis may want to change that as he looks to lift West Brom away from relegation trouble. The former Stoke manager has spent over £27m in January windows at Stoke and Crystal Palace. Top 5 January buys January spending over past 10 years Fernando Torres (2011) £51,480,000 David Luiz (2011)£23,760,000 Nemanja Matic (2014)£22,000,000 Nicolas Anelka (2008)£15,840,000 Mohamed Salah (2014)£14,520,000 Two years ago QPR spent £22.44m in a desperate bid to secure survival in the Premier League. It didn’t work, and cost the club dearly after relegation to the Championship. Will chairman Tony Fernandes be so cavalier this January? He will likely be given a number of targets from manager Harry Redknapp, who has spent over £100m in January windows since they were introduced in 2003. Steve Howard (2008) £1,980,000 Chris Wood (2013)£1,080,000 Wes Morgan (2012)£990,000 Ben Marshall (2012)£968,000 Danny Drinkwater (2012)£792,000 January spending over past 10 years Wayne Hennessey (2014) £3,210,000 Joe Ledley (2014)£3,080,000 Jason Puncheon (2014)£1,940,000 Scott Dann (2014)£1,610,000 Paul Ifill (2007)£990,000 After winning promotion last season, Leicester’s Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha said he wanted the Foxes to be a top five club within five years and was prepared to spend £180m to get there. Nigel Pearson will be hoping for an advance on some of that cash this January, with his side cut adrift at the foot of the table. Leicester spent just £12.24m to reinforce their squad in the summer. Hull have only spent three full seasons in the Premier League since 2003, yet have spent more in the January window (£31.3m to be precise) than some of clubs who have been in the top tier every season. In fact, of clubs not involved in European competition, only Southampton have spent more than Hull since they won promotion in 2013. Yet despite the £64.37m spent, the Tigers are currently only teetering above the relegation zone. Manchester City Top 5 January buys January spending over past 10 years Juan Mata (2014) £39,360,000 Louis Saha (2004)£15,400,000 Wilfried Zaha (2013)£10,340,000 Nemanja Vidic (2006)£9,240,000 Patrice Evra (2006)£7,040,000 The biggest January spenders in Premier League history, Chelsea have spent a massive £271.54m since 2003. Some of those signings have been undoubted successes; David Luiz, Nemanja Matic, Branislav Ivanovic, and some high-profile failures; Scott Parker, Mohamed Salah and, of course, Fernando Torres. Chelsea usually spend biggest in January when they’ve not been at their best in the half of the season leading up to it. The Blues could do with another striker in the summer to replace the aging Drogba, but for now Jose Mourinho’s squad looks pretty well-stocked all over. January spending over past 10 years Everton Liverpool Top 5 January buys January spending over past 10 years Top 5 January buys Burnley Danny Fox (2010) £1,850,000 Leon Cort (2010)£1,580,000 Charlie Austin (2011)£1,230,000 Andy Gray (2006)£968,000 Ade Akinbiyi (2007)£968,000 Southampton United spent £170m this summer – more than any English club has ever spent in a single window. That followed United’s biggest January ever, when they made Juan Mata the second-biggest January signing in Premier League history with a £39m fee. After all that, they surely can’t be expecting to buy more players this month, can they? According to recent share prospectus issued by the Glazers, they may be planning to do just that. West Ham United Hull City Transfer Window History Stoke City Chelsea Darren Bent (2011) £18,920,000 Ashley Young (2007)£11,620,000 Jean II Makoun (2011)£5,460,000 Emile Heskey (2009)£3,260,000 Eric Djemba-Djemba (2005)£2,240,000 Luke Moore (2011) £880,000 David Cotterill (2010)£594,000 Ashley Williams (2008)£528,000 Nathan Dyer (2009)£528,000 Darryl Duffy (2007)£264,000 January spending over past 10 years Tottenham have been the Premier League’s third-biggest spenders in January since the window first opened in 2003, having splashed out £123.81m in that time (£52m more than North London rivals Arsenal). Spurs’ most costly January came in 2009 – Harry Redknapp’s first season at the club – when £45m was spent on Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe, Wilson Palacios and Pascal Chimbonda. January spending over past 10 years Top 5 January buys In their entire history, Burnley have spent £45m on transfers. Chelsea spent more than that on Fernando Torres in January 2011. So don’t expect too many explosive deals to emerge from Turf Moor this month. After winning promotion last season, the club decided to keep things low-key in the transfer market, limiting spending to under £10m. After a tricky opening spell, the club have now pulled themselves to within sight of an unlikely survival. Could the Clarets go for broke in January? Manager Gus Poyet will surely want to improve the players at his disposal ahead of what looks to be another battle with relegation. Yet the club has often struggled to find value in this window. Over £40m has been spent yet few players, with the exception of record January signing Stephane Sessegnon, have made a prolonged impact. Luke Moore (2008) £3,300,000 Liam Ridgewell (2012)£2,110,000 Richard Chaplow (2005)£1,980,000 Nigel Quashie (2006)£1,580,000 Geoff Horsfield (2004)£1,320,000 All data courtesy of transfermarkt.co.uk Matthew Upson (2007) £11,090,000 Dean Ashton (2006)£9,580,000 Savio Nsereko (2009)£7,480,000 Luís Boa Morte (2007)£5,980,000 Calum Davenport (2007)£3,700,000 Top 5 January buys Swansea are the only Premier League club to have never spent more than £1m in the January window. Yet that hasn’t prevented them from finding exceptional value during the month. Ashley Williams and Nathan Dyer, players who have made 265 and 200 appearances respectively were signed for £528,000 each. Manchester United Chelsea have more of the world’s most valuable players than any other club, according to new study Top 5 January buys Top 5 January buys Edin Dzeko (2011) £32,560,000 Nigel de Jong (2009)£15,840,000 Craig Bellamy (2009)£13,640,000 Wayne Bridge (2009)£11,440,000 Robbie Fowler (2003)£8,620,000 West Brom Queens Park Rangers Your Premier league team Click on your Premier League football team below for a round-up of their spending in the January transfer window Jonathan Woodgate (2003) £11,880,000 Papiss Demba Cissé (2012)£10,560,000 Jean-Alain Boumsong (2005)£9,940,000 Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa (2013)£7,040,000 Mathieu Debuchy (2013)£5,460,000 Joe Hall January spending over past 10 years January spending over past 10 years Top 5 January buys However, reigning European champions Real Madrid and German giants Bayern Munich share with Chelsea the accolade of having 11 players in the 100 most valuable list.The Premier League has more players in CIES Football Observatory list than any other league in the world. A total of 49 players from England’s top tier make an appearance compared to 25 from Spain, 19 from Germany and Italy respectively and eight from France (seven of which play for Paris Saint-Germain).No. of players in most-valuable list |Create infographicsChelsea’s Eden Hazard who is considered the Premier League’s most treasured asset, according to the study, with the Belgian winger given a valuation of €99m (£77.6m).However, it is Lionel Messi who is football’s most valuable player, with an eye-popping valuation of €220m (£172.43m). The Football Observatory is a research group at the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), based in Switzerland. Their transfer values are based on an econometric algorithm that takes into account player performance, age, position, contract duration and results achieved by their team. West Ham have spent a chunky £53.6m in the 12 January windows so far, although a large portion of that came in 2007 when then-owner Eggert Magnusson released £24.7m for new recruits in an ultimately successful bid to stave off relegation. Having already spent around £30m this summer, and with the team comfortably in the upper echelons of the table, a repeat of that is unlikely this January. Leicester City January spending over past 10 years Last season’s runners up spent a gargantuan £133m in the summer, yet have regressed since. The market nous of Brendan Rodgers and the club’s “transfer committee” has been criticised, with many of the new signings such as Dejan Lovren and Mario Balotelli having failed to improve the first team. The question this January is to what extent Rodgers and co will be entrusted to spend further in January in order to fix the team’s ailments.

Earlier today Goldman Sachs slashed 2015 forecasts for Brent crude to $50 per barrel (down from $83) and $70 per barrel in 2016 (down from $90).It said “to keep all capital sidelined and curtail investment in shale until the market has re-balanced, we believe prices need to stay lower for longer”.US crude also suffered, shedding $1.22 to $47.14 per barrel which was even further below the £50 per barrel mark.Since mid-2014 oil prices have crumbled amid a glut in the global supply of oil, the burgeoning US shale gas industry and depressed demand from countries such as China.Falling oil prices have hurt oil companies and the world’s oil producers such as Russia and Saudi Arabia. But consumers have cheered cheaper petrol prices while airliners like Ryanair and British Airways have been gifted with cheaper fuel. last_img read more

Facebook, Instagram and Tinder down for over an hour but social media giant denies cyber-attack

first_imgMillions of Facebook and Instagram users were left stranded without profiles to lurk, updates to post and photos to “like” this morning, as the social networks were down for around an hour. Even Tinder users were unable to get swiping with the dating app shut down by what Facebook say was a fault caused by its own engineers. The company has poured cold water on suggestions that the issue had been caused by a cyber-attack, after hacking group Lizard Squad claimed repsonsibility.  From around 6:10am to 7.00am GMT, all three social networks were inaccessible on web and mobile. Social media addicts were greeted with this, their worst nightmare:  It appeared that the services fell victim to a huge DDOS attack. Norse IP Viking, which displays live cyber attacks across the world, showed a huge number of attacks sent to the US. Norse IPViking visualizes the cyber-attack. (Source: http://map.ipviking.com/) Hacker group Lizard Squad, who yesterday got into Malaysia Airlines’ website, took responsibility for the attack on Twitter. Facebook, Instagram, Tinder, AIM, Hipchat #offline #LizardSquad— Lizard Squad (@LizardMafia) January 27, 2015 However, Facebook insisted that the problem was simply a result of its own tinkering. A spokesperson said: “This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems.” Facebook last went down in September when it went offline twice. In the most recent instance it was unavailable for just 15 minutes. Facebook (which also owns Instagram) and Tinder are yet to comment on the outages. Facebook-owned Whatsapp is not known to have experienced any issues. Mark Zuckerberg’s social media behemoth has around 864m daily active users and 1.35bn monthly active subscribers.

Its research showed people were twice as likely to remember their bank balances if they received statements by post. While 75 per cent who received paper statements could correctly assess the financial health of their account, this was true for just 48 per cent of individuals who were working from an online statement.The study also found individuals receiving paper statements were better able to identify ways to improve their finances, such as reducing spending or sticking to a monthly budget.”People’s understanding of the information they receive has important implications on their ability to manage their money effectively,” said Judith Donovan CBE. chair of the Keep Me Posted campaign. “The findings confirm that receiving paper correspondence may help people manger their finances better. It can help them avoid going overdrawn inadvertently or spending beyond their means.”The study comes amid an increasing shift towards online statements – with banks and their customers snubbing paper counterparts on environmental concerns, ease of use, and the seemingly false belief it makes them less financially savvy.

But there’s finally a bit of good news for the capital’s understandably frazzled drivers.Drivers will get a ten-minute window after a council parking ticket runs out before they can be fined as a result of a new law coming in next week. Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said he wanted to end the “war on drivers”. Individuals living or commuting into the capital are likely to be the biggest benefactors of the nationwide change. This is because, as research by the RAC Foundation shows, London boroughs make the most from parking income and penalties.Forty per cent of parking income is made in the city despite the fact Londoners own ten per cent of the UK’s cars. However, it’s also likely that commuters, who commute into London for work or a day out, also contribute.Of the top 30 income makers, 21 are London boroughs (of 33 London boroughs in total).  2011/122010/112009/10Change (%)1Westminster80.084.383.4-4%2Kensington & Chelsea42.836.537.614%3Camden39.339.241.0-4%4Hammersmith & Fulham31.128.324.925%5Wandsworth27.025.224.212%6Islington26.124.229.0-10%7Lambeth25.124.344.0-43%8Brighton & Hove UA23.623.121.69%9Ealing20.014.514.042%10Birmingham18.717.719.2-2%11Tower Hamlets17.516.816.56%12Newham17.213.112.142%13Brent16.913.714.814%14Hackney15.316.513.216%15Haringey14.813.012.024%16Cornwall UA14.013.913.91%17Barnet14.09.210.335%18Newcastle upon Tyne13.912.513.53%19Manchester13.712.511.124%20Leeds13.011.712.08%21Hounslow12.211.210.615%22Croydon11.914.616.0-25%23City of London11.110.09.320%24Southwark10.911.911.2-3%25Bristol UA10.89.99.711%26Enfield10.810.913.0-17%27Bath & North East Somerset UA10.712.311.4-6%28Guildford10.710.19.413%29Waltham Forest10.49.39.94%30Bromley10.310.09.59%  last_img read more
