Arsenal boss Wenger pans disrespectful Xavi

“I spoke to Cesc in Ibiza and he said he was suffering, because he really wants to come,” Xavi said.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has criticised Barcelona midfielder Xavi for claiming Cesc Fabregas is “suffering” at the Premier League club.

Arsenal rejected bids from Barcelona for the Spanish international last year and the European champions have again been linked with a move for Fabregas this close-season but Wenger was adamant that he would not lose his captain.

“I believe a mutual respect between the clubs should stop this kind of comment,” Wenger told the Guardian newspaper after his team beat a Malaysia XI 4-0 at the National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday.

“It is very disrespectful and it is not the first time that Xavi has been disrespectful to Arsenal Football Club,” said the Frenchman.

Earlier, Xavi told a news conference in Catalunya that former Barcelona trainee Fabregas, who is missing from the ongoing Asia tour with a muscle injury, was desperate to return to the club he left as a 16-year-old in 2003 .

“It’s what he most wants, he’s done everything he can to come and wants Arsenal to let him go.”

“What is important is that Cesc Fabregas is contracted to Arsenal Football Club. Arsenal want to keep him.”

Guide to Help You Choose a Good Chinese Wok

This conical metal pan can be used for stir-frying, deep-frying, braising, steaming, and stewing food. If you have a huge family or need to use the wok to cook for several people, then a 16” wok should work well for you.


? The thicker base of Western cast iron woks leads to slow response to heat adjustments.

? They also take a long time to cool when taken off fire, and thus, food needs to be removed immediately to prevent overcooking.

? Heavier cast iron woks are extremely difficult to lift.

? They need to be seasoned to prevent food from sticking.

One of the most important pieces of Chinese cookware and used all over Asia, the wok is a great utensil known for its versatility. Moreover, they are likely to have dents and warps when used for high heat flash cooking. To avoid this, you can use a round-bottomed wok with wok rings that allow the wok to sit safely on the burner while cooking. A rounded wok does have the advantage of a deeper bottom that enables flash cooking and easy tossing of food, but they do not sit well on a Western style stove and are, thus, unable to come in full contact with the stove’s heating element. While you may be itching to get that huge wok you saw at the restaurant, it is advisable to consider certain things before choosing the wok size. While the classic woks used for Chinese cooking are round-bottomed, there are newer flat-bottomed ones available in the market that are suitable for conventional stoves. If seasoning is not done properly, food tends to stick.


The metal type is the most important consideration when choosing a wok. They are, thus, not good enough for cooking stir-fry dishes.

Woks can be found in Asian grocery stores and restaurant supply shops. These handles are riveted or welded to the sides of the wok.

Carbon Steel Woks

Apart from the style, it is also important to pay attention to the material of the wok handles. Moreover, the food is not evenly cooked in these vessels. Seasoning is also needed to remove metallic tastes and odors from the food cooked in these vessels. Unfortunately, tossing and stir-frying with a flat-bottomed wok can be quite difficult. Ideally, the wok should be deep enough to allow you to toss the vegetables while cooking. That is why you need a flat-bottomed wok, especially if you are using electric burners. They are popular among home cooks and many chefs.


? They do not need to be seasoned before being used. You need to choose the wok based on what you are comfortable with. Classic woks are round in shape, while the Western versions have a flat bottom that make them look like deep-frying pans.

Whether you need a round- or flat-bottomed wok, it depends on the stove you have. Choosing this handy utensil for your home can be a bit confusing. There is also the absence of “wok hei” flavor that food cooked in seasoned cast iron or carbon steel woks have.

? The Teflon coating is unable to withstand very high temperature. The ideal metal type for woks are carbon steel, which has been seasoned.


There are many sizes of woks available in the market. The long stick-style handles are good for smaller woks. Stainless steel handles are heat-resistant, sturdy, and remain relatively cool for a long time.


? They have to be seasoned so as to prevent food from sticking. While these woks may work for home chefs, they do not have even heat distribution or heat retention, thus, making them extremely inefficient for Chinese cooking. Long heat-resistant wood or plastic handles are your best bet. In China, the popular stick handle woks are known as “Peking pans.” Some of the newer woks in the market have a loop handle on one side and a stick-style handle on the other. You should ideally choose a ring that is 4″ smaller in diameter than the wok and fits the burner well.

Steel or aluminum woks coated with Teflon and PFA are popular in western countries. Getting a versatile modern wok is a decision you will never regret. To help you choose the right wok for your kitchen, this Buzzle write-up dishes out a few tips.

How to Choose a Chinese Wok


Woks generally come with two loop handles on either side or a long stick-style handle on one side. While cast iron and carbon steel are more commonly used, non-stick woks have also gained popularity in recent years.


? These woks are expensive as compared to metal woks.

? They do not brown the food in the pan; instead, they retain the juices. This is because there are many types of woks available in the market. Each metal type has its own set of pros and cons. While Chinese-made cast iron woks are extremely thin and fragile, the Western versions are often thicker and heavier.


? It’s the best wok for uniform heat distribution and retention.

? When seasoned, they impart a great flavor to the food.

? The Chinese version of cast iron woks are light, and thus, very handy when it comes to tossing food.

Cast Iron Woks

Non-stick Woks

Woks vary from a round bottom to shallow, flat bottom. They are also available in many popular kitchenware stores or online.

This is the most popular type of wok and is often considered the best metal for woks. They are good for novices.

? Non-stick surfaces are easier to clean.

? They require less oil for cooking.

In Chinese, the wok is called “dar shao” which directly translates as “Big Spoon”.

? The size and power of your burner

? What type of food you want to cook

? The amount of food to be cooked

While the woks used in restaurants are several feet in diameter, the ideal size of woks for most households should be around 14”. Moreover, there are different types of material and sizes to choose from. There are many professional chefs who will ask you to opt for these plain, uncoated woks.


? The quick heat conduction and even transfer of heat help in faster and better cooking.

? Due to seasoning or carbonizing, there is a distinctive “wok hei” flavor imparted to the dishes.

? Carbon steel woks are relatively inexpensive as compared to other metal woks.

? They are lightweight and easy to lift especially while stir-frying.

? These woks are durable and strong.

Other material available include stainless steel and aluminum. These include:


Cast iron is a traditional metal wok used by the Chinese. The loop-style wok handles are seen in traditional woks and are best for large woks that cannot be lifted with just one handle. So, choose one with care, and you are sure to cherish it for years to come.

Football: GERS LOOKING; mailsport premier league HEMD IN RONALDO.

Alex McLeish was delighted his side ended their three-match losing streak ahead of the crunch European tie.

Watch the Boydie: Red-hot striker Kris Boyd slots home the opener that set Rangers on their way to a much-needed victory’ Hemdinger: Hemdani was in fine form

“Julien Rodriguez was excellent. And Chris Burke was different class.”

Hemdani said: “It was important to win this game after losing to Celtic last week.

He said: “We were under pressure going into this game. My players handled it well and it was great they didn’t go into a shell.

Goals from Kris Boyd and Barry Ferguson stopped Gers slumping to a fourth straight defeat against the Hibees but it was Hemdani who stole the show in his first game since the 2-1 defeat at Easter Road in November.

Copyright 2006 Gale, Cengage Learning. Alan Hutton and Stevie Smith also played well. They’re a good technical side but we also have good players.”

And he claims anything less than finishing second in the SPL and a last-eight spot in the Champions League will be unacceptable.

How Do You Know He Is Well Endowed? by Ruth Purple

His thing was as tiny as my little finger, it was really a bummer!? Alexa continued. Also, according to some, men with borderline high testosterone levels are better-endowed than men who have lower testosterone levels. Though this may not be scientifically proven it is said that testosterone enhances sexual appetite and confidence. Laughingly, my other friend, Angela answered ?How can you tell at first glance if a guy is well-endowed or not? The shoe and height ratios are not accurate, believe me, I know.? ?Yeah, like this one time I met this cocky guy who was really appealing.

I was drawn to him so much, that I decided to sleep with him. This study shows that you should stop obsessing on how to make your penis bigger because for the people who matter, you are fine as you are, no matter what you measurements are.. But on a more personal note, no matter how well-endowed your partner is but if he makes you feel like s*** then better stick with the average Joe that makes you feel like a million dollars.

So, how do you know, without taking his pants off if he is well-endowed or not? First, let?s talk about penis size. You know, men with Shia LaBeouf or Colin Farrell features. Now its counterpart, the vagina is very adaptable; it can accommodate large and small penises.

The circumference of the vagina of a woman who hasn?t had a child is 3 inches and when she becomes aroused, it dilates another inch. Though there is no real indication if a man is well-endowed or not, (but if you have any ideas, don?t hesitate to post a comment) confidence counts a lot when it comes to sexual activity.

One indication of a well-endowed man is very apparent- his tight fitting pants are about to pop out. Now, that you know the basic sizes of the reproductive organs, let?s go back to the much awaited answer to the question, how do you know if he is well endowed without going down there? Some girls say when he walks like John Wayne in a Western movie or has an ex-girlfriend that walks like John Wayne in a Western movie then most probably he is well-endowed.

The fact of the matter is, women discuss penis sizes but in reality it doesn?t really matter when there is chemistry, deep commitment and love. I was really disappointed when we did it; it was like nowhere near what I expected. The average erected penis size is between 5.5 and 6.2 inches and the girth is 4.7 to 5.1 inches. Women are not shallow creatures; on the contrary, it has been proven that men are more obsessed with the dangling thing between their legs than women.

According to surveys 85% of girls are satisfied with their partner?s penis size but on the other hand men are 55% satisfied with their own penises. How can you tell if a man has a borderline high testosterone level? It is said that a man who sports more facial and body hair and who posses a deep manly voice and exudes that ?macho? aura has an active libido.

Last night my girlfriends and I decided to go out and check out this new bar near my block and after a few ladies drinks, a gorgeous guy passed by? ?Uhmmm, he?s hot but I think he has a tiny ?weeny? ?? commented my friend Jaime. And for some women, it?s the girth size that matters; the feeling of tightness when he enters her is what counts. ?I never returned his calls after that.? After that fun and interesting night, I started thinking about people, to whom penis size matters.

Yes, at some point size does matter but usually, skills beat size at all levels

Tulsa Reserve Deputy’s Attorneys Release Training Records

He has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

The Tulsa County volunteer deputy has disputed a Tulsa World report that sheriff’s office supervisors were ordered to falsify his training records.

The World said at least three of Bates’ supervisors were transferred for refusing to go along with the requests, and said it consulted multiple sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, but it gave no indication how those sources were familiar with the situation.

Bates told NBC’s “Today” show on Friday that he was certified for his position and had the documentation to prove it.

Harris’ family attorney — who had questioned Bates’ qualifications as a reserve deputy — did not return a message seeking comment Saturday. Defense attorneys released some of the training records Saturday for a 73-year-old volunteer sheriff’s deputy charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed suspect in Oklahoma.

The records for Robert Bates include certificates showing what training he received, job evaluation reports and weapons training and qualification records dating to 2008.

Bates’ attorneys said the 64 pages of records released to The Associated Press and other news organizations include records Bates copied and kept for himself. A call to the district attorney’s office rang unanswered, and the sheriff’s office referred questions to Wood.

“I want to do everything I can to make sure that people know that this allegation of falsified records is not true,” Wood said.

Tulsa Reserve Deputy’s Attorneys Release Training Records – ABC News. Although there are time gaps in the documents provided, some of the records seem to indicate Bates was proficient in firearms and dozens of other training courses.

“For the first time today, we feel like someone’s starting to look at the other side of this as far as his qualifications,” Scott Wood, an attorney for Bates, said after the documents were released.

Bates has said he mistakenly pulled out a handgun rather than a stun gun when he fatally shot Eric Harris on April 2 as he lay on the ground

Page 22: Third Presidential Debate: Full Transcript

It means our goods aren’t as competitive and we lose jobs. Now that’s estimated to create 800,000 jobs, the problem is they won’t be here, they’ll be in places like China.

We absolutely have to make more progress and that’s why we’re going to keep on pressing.

We have enormous trade imbalance with China, and it’s worse this year than last year, and it’s worse last year than the year before. It’s not government investments that makes businesses grow and hire people.

And when it comes to our military and Chinese security, part of the reason that we were able to pivot to the Asia-Pacific region after having ended the war in Iraq and transitioning out of Afghanistan, is precisely because this is going to be a massive growth area in the future.

That’s the kind of leadership we’ve shown in the region. It’s not my term, it’s the president’s own secretary of defense called these trillion dollars of cuts to our military devastating. And there’s one going on right now, which we don’t know about it. They don’t want to see protectionism. And then we noticed that there was more than one with that same serial number. They’re stealing our intellectual property, our patents, our designs, our technology, hacking into our computers, counterfeiting our goods.

SCHIEFFER: All right.

If we had taken your advice Governor Romney about our auto industry, we’d be buying cars from China instead of selling cars to China.

We’ll also make sure that we have trade relations with China that work for us. auto industry. And, unfortunately, Governor Romney’s budget and his proposals would not allow us to make those investments.. It was President Bush that wrote the first checks. And they’re winning.

Now, they look at us and say, Is it a good idea to be with America? How strong are we going to be? How strong is our economy? They look at the fact that we owe ‘em a trillion dollars and owe other people $16 trillion in total, including that.

I want a great relationship with China. They don’t want to see the world break out into — into various forms of chaos, because they have to — they have to manufacture goods and put people to work and they have about 20,000 — 20 million, rather, people coming out of the farms every year coming into the cities, needing jobs.

If we take your advice with respect to how we change our tax codes so that companies that earn profits overseas don’t pay U.S. But I’ve made a different bet on American workers.

They have to understand we want to trade with them. taxes compared to companies here that are paying taxes. I mean that’s how our free market works. exporters since 1993.


OBAMA: In fact, just recently steelworkers in Ohio and throughout the Midwest — Pennsylvania — are in a position now to sell steel to China because we won that case. I disagree with that. company, the same packaging, these were being sold into our market and around the world as if they were made by the U.S. They don’t want war. They feel as if they had finally an administration who was going to take this issue seriously.

Let me also note that the greatest threat that the world faces, the greatest national security threat is a nuclear Iran.

And fortunately…

They look at America’s commitments around the world and they see what’s happening, and they say, well, OK. But this can’t keep on going. I have to say that Governor Romney criticized me for being too tough in that tire case; said this wouldn’t be good for American workers and that it would be protectionist.

ROMNEY: They look at our — our decision to — to cut back on our military capabilities. I’ve watched year in and year out as companies have shut down and people have lost their jobs because China has not played by the same rules, in part by holding down artificially the value of their currency. I like American cars. And we put a stop to it and as a consequence saved jobs throughout America. China has an interest that’s very much like ours in one respect, and that is they want a stable world. It holds down the prices of their goods. That’s why on day one, i will label them a currency manipulator, which allows us to apply tariffs where they’re taking jobs. My dad was head of a car company. And I would do nothing to hurt the U.S. My plan to get the industry on its feet when it was in real trouble was not to start writing checks. Is America going to be strong? And the answer is, yes, if I’m president, America will be very strong.

And, you know, that’s — you’re right. ROMNEY: I just want to take one of those points, again, attacking me as not talking about an agenda for — for getting more trade and opening up more jobs in this country. And we’re organizing trade relations with countries other than China so that China starts feeling more pressure about meeting basic international standards.

But I tell you, those workers don’t feel that way. We understand it. We like free enterprise, but you got to play by the rules.

Let’s talk about China. A trillion dollars. It’s not my term, it’s the president’s own Secretary of Defense, called them devastating.


They’re making some progress; they need to make more. We can work with them, we can collaborate with them, if they’re willing to be responsible.

SCHIEFFER: Well, Governor, let me just ask you. The secretary of defense called these trillion dollars of cuts to our military devastating. And so we can be a partner with China. exports have doubled since I came into office, to China and actually currencies are at their most advantageous point for U.S. Nothing could be further from the truth.

And we believe China can be a partner, but we’re also sending a very clear signal that America is a Pacific power; that we are going to have a presence there. But the president mentioned the auto industry and that somehow I would be in favor of jobs being elsewhere. I said they need — these companies need to go through a managed bankruptcy. They were counterfeit products being made overseas with the same serial number as a U.S. That’s the kind of leadership that we’ll continue to show.

So they want the economy to work and the world to be free and open. That’s the reason why we have brought more cases against China for violating trade rules than the other — the previous administration had done in two terms. We have to say to our friend in China, look, you guys are playing aggressively. This can’t go on.

I’m a son of Detroit. I was born in Detroit. It’s a silent one. We want a world that’s stable. You can’t keep on holding down the value of your currency, stealing our intellectual property, counterfeiting our products, selling them around the world, even to the United States.

OBAMA: Well, Governor Romney’s right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas.

ROMNEY: Well, they sell us about this much stuff every year, and we sell them about this much stuff every year. And we’ve won just about every case that we’ve filed, that has been decided.

And if we’re not making investments in education and basic research, which is not something that the private sector is doing at a sufficient pace right now and has never done, then we will lose the (inaudible) in things like clean energy technology.

ROMNEY: Well, first of all, it’s not government that makes business successful. We had a tire case in which they were flooding us with cheap domestic tires — or — or cheap Chinese tires. So it’s pretty clear who doesn’t want a trade war. If we don’t have the best education system in the world, if we don’t continue to put money into research and technology that will allow us to create great businesses here in the United States, that’s how we lose the competition. China can be our partner, but — but that doesn’t mean they can just roll all over us and steal our jobs on an unfair basis.

Now with respect to what we’ve done with China already, U.S. Is that — isn’t there a risk that that could happen?

I was with one company that makes valves and — and process industries and they said, look, we were — we were having some valves coming in that — that were broken and we had to repair them under warranty and we looked them and — and they had our serial number on them. And in that process, they can get government help and government guarantees, but they need to go through bankruptcy to get rid of excess cost and the debt burden that they’d — they’d built up.

Over the long term, in order for us to compete with China, we’ve also got to make sure, though, that we’re taking — taking care of business here at home. If you declare them a currency manipulator on day one, some people are — say you’re just going to start a trade war with China on day one. That’s got to end.

I know Americans had seen jobs being shipped overseas; businesses and workers not getting a level playing field when it came to trade. We don’t have to be an adversary in any way, shape or form. And so we have to understand that we can’t just surrender and lose jobs year in and year out. And that’s the reason why I set up a trade task force to go after cheaters when it came to international trade. competitor. We are working with countries in the region to make sure, for example, that ships can pass through; that commerce continues
