Al Nassr confident of landing Wilfried Zaha

Al Nassr are confident that they will win the race to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer, 90min understands. The Ivorian's deal with Crystal Palace is up in the summer and he is available on a free transfer. 90min previously reported that the Eagles were eager to keep Zaha in south London and had tabled him a club-record contract offer worth over £200,000-a-week. Zaha had, however, planned on prioritising a move to a club com Pet ing in the UEFA Champions League, with Atletico Madrid and Marseille prepared to offer him such a prospect. He has also been approached by Qatari outfit Al Sadd. But sources have told 90min that the contract on the table from Al Nassr has blown Zaha's other offers out of the water and they are confident of completing a deal. Should Zaha accept, he will become a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo. Various high-profile players are swapping Europe for Saudi Arabia this summer. Karim Benzema's move to champions Al-Ittihad was confirmed on Tuesday evening,

Norfolk Southern is first railroad to give all workers sick time but all see progress in labor talks

Norfolk Southern became the first major freight railroad with deals to provide sick time to all of its workers Monday, but the other railroads are making progress with nearly 60% of all rail workers securing this basic benefit OMAHA, Neb. -- Norfolk Southern became the first major freight railroad with deals to provide paid sick time to all of its workers Monday, but the other railroad s are making progress with nearly 60% of all rail workers securing this basic benefit since the start of the year. All of the major freight railroads have said they are committed to resolving this key issue that nearly led to a strike in last year's bitter contract talks. But most of those railroads — which include CSX, Union Pacific, BNSF, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Kansas City — are still negotiating with a number of their unions. Most of the sick time deals, including the one Norfolk Southern announced for yardmasters Monday, provide four days of paid sick time and give workers the

Perez knew Spain podium was 'out of reach' in Russell pursuit

Sergio Perez knew the Formula 1 podium was out of reach in his Spanish Grand Prix pursuit of George Russell for third place. Recovering from 11th on the grid, Perez ran as high as second before making his first pitstop, scything through the midfield to run in fourth place before Russell pitted on Lap 51 for a new set of Soft tyres at his second stop. Perez responded and began to carve chunks of time out of the Mercedes , but admitted after his fourth place finish that his race was not with Russell - who secured a first podium of the season behind race-winner Max Verstappen and his own Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.

KTM: "Needing to feel important" has motivated Miller in MotoGP 2023

Miller signed a two-year factory deal with KTM when Ducati elected to move him out of its works team set-up in favour of Enea Bastianini. The Australian was offered a chance to remain at Ducati, but only on a one-year deal at Pramac. Miller, who was runner-up in the 2014 Moto3 world championship with KTM, has made an instant impression on the Austrian marque in 2023, having scored two podiums in the opening five rounds of the campaign. As well as his encouraging results, Miller's development inputs from his five years of experience at Ducati have boosted KTM. Speaking exclusively to, Guidotti said: "Jack has brought with him a lot of experience, which was what we needed. "His indications have given us security and confirmations. "He offers us a point of view that we didn't have on our bike; the perspective of someone who wasn't familiar with the KTM. It has been very good for us. "When we signed him, we were very clear with hi

Meta tests blocking news content on Instagram, Facebook for some Canadians

Meta is preparing to block news for some Canadians on Facebook and Instagram in a temporary test that is expected to last through the end of June OTTAWA, Ontario -- Meta is temporarily blocking some Canadian users from accessing news content on Facebook and Instagram as part of a temporary test that is expected to last through the end of June, the tech giant said Thursday. The block — which follows a similar step taken by Google earlier this year — comes in response to a proposed bill that will require tech giants to pay publishers for linking to or otherwise repurposing their content online. Bill C-18, the Online News Act, is currently being considered in the Senate and could be passed as early as this month. Meta also said it is prepared to permanently block news content on Facebook and Instagram for Canadians if the bill passes. Canadian Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez called Meta's move “disappointing” and said Canadians will not be intimidated by these tactics. The temporary

Miller: 2023 MotoGP title fight “like last year on steroids”

With the addition of sprint races in 2023, after five rounds there have already been 10 races completed, with three different riders winning the sprints and the grands prix. Heading into next weekend’s Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, Francesco Bagnaia’s points lead over Marco Bezzecchi stands at just one as the reigning champion has suffered three DNFs in the first five GPs. To boot, Bagnaia is on the latest-spec Ducati, while Bezzecchi is on a VR46-run 2022-spec bike, while four of the top six riders in the standings are from satellite teams. After a hectic French GP, Miller observed: “We’re five races through now, we’ve seen everything. “I think this championship will continue like this for this year. This year is like last year on steroids again. “There’s so many bikes [that are fast], everybody is so com Pet itive, we see guys one week struggling and the next week they are riding away from everybody. “So, it’s a tough one to gauge and it’s honestly hard to understand – o

Jerusalem's redesigned Tower of David museum opens after 3-year renovation

Jerusalem’s iconic citadel has opened its revamped museum after a three-year, $50 million makeover that included a restoration of its signature minaret JERUSALEM -- Jerusalem’s iconic citadel has opened its revamped museum after a three-year, $50 million makeover that included a restoration of its signature minaret. The Tower of David, the ancient fortress on the western edge of the Old City, contains remnants of successive fortifications built one atop the other dating back over two millennia. For centuries, pilgrims, conquerors and tourists visiting the city holy to Judaism, Christianity and Islam have entered Jerusalem beneath the adjacent Jaffa Gate. Today, the former castle serves as a museum dedicated to the city’s 3,000-year history. It is a daunting task for a museum condensed into around 11,000 square feet (1,000 square meters) of gallery space, particularly due to its location in the Old City, the focal point of the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In a city of duel

New Bedford once lit the world with whale oil. Now it wants to do the same with wind power

The vessel UHF Felicity pulled into the port of New Bedford shortly before 5:00 Wednesday afternoon carrying massive parts for offshore wind turbines NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -- New Bedford was once the city that lit the world , exporting vast quantities of whale oil for lamps in the early 1800s. Workers packed the docks, unloading casks of oil that had been extracted at sea from whale carcasses and brought in by a fleet of hundreds of whaling ships. Nearly two centuries later New Bedford aspires to light the world again, in a different relationship with the sea, as the offshore wind industry arrives here. On Wednesday, the vessel UHL Felicity bringing wind turbine tower sections from Portugal reached the Port of New Bedford. Once assembled out on the water this summer by developer Vineyard Wind, the turbines will stand more than 850 feet high. “There’s this sort of poetic coming-about for New Bedford as a center of energy,” Mayor Jon Mitchell said. It’s also a milestone for the industry.

Ducati plays down Jorge Martin's Yamaha MotoGP links for 2024

One-time grand prix winner Martin made his MotoGP debut with Ducati as a Pramac rider in 2021 and won the Styrian GP in his rookie year. Martin was locked in a battle with Enea Bastianini last season for a place at the factory Ducati squad, but was beaten to the seat by the four-time race winner. The Spaniard remained on a factory contract for 2023 to stay at Pramac, but in the early part of this year, he has been linked to a potential Yamaha switch for next season. Martin confirmed during the French Grand Prix weekend that he does have a clause in his current contract that states he can leave a year early if he is offered a factory seat. Commenting on the rumours, Ciabatti doesn't think the Yamaha package will be good enough to entice Martin away. "Sure he has an option in the contract, we would like him to stay with Ducati," Ciabatti told the MotoGP world feed at Le Mans. "He's one of the fastest young riders and, at the moment, it doesn't loo
