Even though Arsenal were chasing the game,in theory it was not until the final five minutes that its challenge found waking life It was not too late by then but a draw would have embarrassed Wenger and his men They deserved nothing after being played off the park It has been three years and 17 matches since Arsenal won away against a top six side The contrast between their home and away form this season is in the vicinity of a crisis Arsenal have picked up only 13 points from 14 matches on the road; at the Emirates the total stands on 32 in 13 games It is not just the creaky defence holding the Gunners back For all their attacking effervescence only 15 away goals have been scored These numbers usually belong to a mediocre side; Arsenal increasingly looks like one having lost all of its last four matches on the travels The defeats in the marquee clashes at least could be explained by the manner in which Wenger approaches these games He is averse to putting the whole range of his side’s attacking riches together The trouble is that Arsenal does defend well either So in the attempt to seek the middle path the Gunners get nowhere This is why Wenger’s safety-first approach on Saturday did not work Arsenal got outplayed Spurs played like a side which has not lost since mid-December providing a steady contrast For all his recent manoeuvres towards speed and offensive exuberance Wenger seems rather unsure of the way he wants to combat teams of similar or better pedigree It is worth making the argument that the visiting side could have offered more by fielding its best attacking unit Yet Lacazette was benched and we did not get to see the much-discussed front four in action together Wenger deployed the handbrake and all he got was stop-start football Spurs never really had to contend with the relentless pressing which led to their comprehensive defeat at the Emirates earlier this season The host played on the front foot certain that its on-paper superiority will win the day Yet it must worry Pochettino that his players did not put the game to bed They nearly paid for it in the end as they invited pressure upon themselves However after a period in which Spurs have faced Manchester United Liverpool and Arsenal seven points out of a possible nine represents a remarkable return The club’s Champions League hopes have received a boost and it will be a surprise if the Lilywhites do not make a return to the elite competition For the red corner of North London though it is a dream which seems rather distant now It’s official: Verizon completed its acquisition of AOL Tuesday in a deal that raises yet-unanswered questions about the future of one of the country’s earliest Internet brands and of online media in general The $44 billion deal which the companies announced in May gives Verizon access to AOL’s digital ad technology as well as content brands like The Huffington Post as well as technology blogs Engadget and TechCrunch The merger sparked rumors about the future of the AOL-owned Huffington Post and whether the site’s founder Arianna Huffington had a place at Verizon Huffington quelled the doubters last week when she signed a contract to remain president and editor-in-chief of the site for four more years AOL CEO Tim Armstrong also shows no signs of an exit he will continue to run AOL from within the Verizon chain of command Speculation that Verizon might try to sell off the Huffington Post also appears to be unfounded for now Verizon and AOL are holding a conference call at 10 am ET Tuesday;

Editing by Robert Birsel) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed After running the Royal Institution (RI) of Great Britain for more than a decade a period in which she spearheaded a controversial and costly physical renovation of the science body’s historic London headquarters neuroscientist Susan Greenfield found her director position eliminated and herself locked out of an RI-owned flat on Friday night On Saturday the trustees who oversee the RI released a statement explaining the apparent cost-saving move saying it came after a recent review of the body’s governance led them to conclude that “the requirement for the functions of the role of Director as currently defined has ceased to exist” But Greenfield isn’t going quietly; she quickly released her own statement saying she’s considering legal challenges to her dismissal that may include sexual discrimination charges against the RI The RI was founded in 1799 and has long worked to promote science to the public; its Christmas lectures are a British tradition The RI has also provided a home for a small number of celebrated scientists including physicists Michael Faraday and Lawrence Bragg The RI reopened its headquarters last year showing off modernized laboratory space and a new high-end bar and restaurant within the headquarters But rumors have been swirling that Greenfield might be pushed out ever since the RI’s precarious financial state came to light in a series of recent media reports The 20 million-plus renovations forced the selling of other real-estate assets and still reportedly left the organization 3 million in debt Its auditors even recently questioned the ongoing viability of the institution Greenfield has always been a polarizing figure; some have dismissed her scientific qualifications whereas others have praised her ability to communicate science to the public (A Science profile of Greenfield captured the mixed views) Last year Greenfield added to her controversial resume with claims that heavy use of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter effectively rewires children’s brains to have short attention spans But what seems to have lost Greenfield her job were matters of money not science The RI had reportedly offered her a severance package or the possibility of continuing as director in a part-time or unpaid capacity but she declined In her statement Greenfield says: "I am saddened and dismayed by developments and dispute the lawfulness of the current decision-making procedure As well as contesting the legitimacy of the process I will be presenting a claim in the employment tribunal which will include allegations of sex discrimination I am the only female who has been appointed to this iconic post throughout the 211-year history of the Royal Institution and I cannot see how this decision can be in the best interests of the organisation or its members" Chris Rofe the RI’s chief executive officer has now assumed leadership of the RI but some British scientists say the science body needs a charismatic researcher at the helm — UPDATE: Quentin Pankhurst who in 2008 was appointed director of the Davy-Faraday Research Laboratories at the RI just spoke with ScienceInsider and says that his group’s investigations into bio- and nanomagnetism continue "We are a self-sufficient part of the Royal Institution and not jeopardized in any way by the financial situation affecting the rest of the Institution” he says Pankhurst’s team and colleagues at University College London recently won a 16 million grant to explore how magnetic nanoparticles can treat cancer Arsenal looked clueless.The friends,"Most Italian road infrastructure is more than 50 years old, District Judge T. 2007 DreamWorks Wall-E – Wall-E, stationed at Artillery Village in Fort Sill, D-R.
