Virginia’s London Sees Improvement, But No Wins

The Cavaliers (2-4, 0-2) lost their second game in a row Saturday, 27-26 at Maryland, when Alec Vozenilek’s 42-yard field goal try sailed wide right with under a minute remaining. It was the final miscue but in spite of many improvements, far from the only one. Virginia ran for 242 yards, but got stuffed on consecutive plays from inside the Terps’ 2 in the first quarter. It was one of four trips inside the Maryland 20 that ended with Vozenilek kicking a field goal. “It is disappointing knowing that maybe if one of those field goals had turned into a touchdown, we would have won the game,” right guard Jay Whitmire said Monday. On defense, Maryland gained 468 yards, none more damaging than the 47-yard pass backup quarterback Caleb Rowe completed to Deon Long on third-and-22. Long was double-covered on the catch, but still came down with the ball on the game-winning drive. “We just didn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were presented before us,” linebacker Henry Coley said. “We got our hands on a few balls, we misjudged some balls and we had a few mental errors out there. It was just different people at different times, but it ended up with us losing the football game.” The Cavaliers also won the turnover battle 3-0, but converted the takeaways into just 6 points. In many ways, their 2-4 record feels a lot like their 2-4 mark at this point last season, quarterback David Watford said.

Virginia coach London looks to turn improvements into wins when Cavaliers play surprising Duke

Despite having run nearly every year for three and a half decades, the Lord Mayor’s Show fireworks did not take place in 2012 due to financial constraints and concerns for the safety of the crowd. However, having found a safe way to proceed, the fireworks make a glorious return on Saturday 9th November 2013. One of the most impressive firework displays in London, the procession sees river barges piled high with explosives and set adrift on the Thames. The best places to watch the display are Victoria Embankment, Blackfriars Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, or on the South bank between the National Theatre and Tate Modern. For information on the Lord Mayor’s Show procession and grandstands visit LondonTown.com, where details on a wide range of hotels in London can also be found. After a four-year hiatus, Alexandra Palace’s popular fireworks display returns on Saturday 2nd November. Appropriately titled ‘Back with a Bang’, the evening promises to light up north London’s sky in spectacular fashion with a masterful display created by Star Fireworks, recently crowned the 2013 British Fireworks Champions. As well as the fireworks there will also be a family funfair, street food village, ice skating sessions and a German Bier Festival. Having once again chosen Brockwell Park over Clapham Common, Lewisham Council is hosting a grand spectacle of an evening on Bonfire Night. Spitting the 124-acre park into four different zones, the evening takes the theme of ‘The Four Seasons’, with a zone for spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each section will offer food, drinks and entertainment, pre and post the fireworks. There will be Morris men, stilt walkers, fire dancers and live music.

In many ways, their 2-4 record feels a lot like their 2-4 mark at this point last season, quarterback David Watford said. Still, having been through it and having seen the team fall apart, there is resolve. “As a team we just have to stick together,” he said. “I feel like that was really one of the things last year is things kind of went south, guys kind of started to fall apart and you could see it, especially in the locker room. Certain guys, it just started to turn bad. When it turned bad, everything went bad.

London to Become Hub for China’s Yuan

On Monday, Britain unveiled simpler visa rules aimed at luring Chinese tourists. Osborne’s trip marks a return to normal exchanges after Beijing derailed a planned visit by Prime Minister David Cameron in April in retaliation for the British leader having met the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader. Investors in London will be allowed to apply for licenses to invest yuan directly into China, Osborne announced. He said the Chinese central bank set an initial quota for London of 80 billion yuan ($12.7 billion). Tuesday’s announcement put London ahead in the race by global financial centers to gain a share of yuan-denominated business as Beijing gradually expands use of its currency for trade and investment. Hong Kong was the first financial center outside mainland China where trading of yuan was authorized. London banks have traded yuan since early last year. “Now London is a major global offshore center for the trading of the Chinese currency,” Osborne told reporters. Britain and China signed an agreement in June to have their central banks swap 200 billion yuan for 20 billion pounds. The European Central Bank and Beijing announced a similar agreement this month to swap 350 billion yuan for 45 billion euros. That suggested Frankfurt also might be in to become a center for business denominated in yuan. Also Tuesday, Osborne said China’s state-owned banks will be allowed to expand their operations in Britain by setting up wholesale branches. Cameron was forced to abandon his April trip after China said he would not be able to meet senior officials. Some lower-level meetings also were put on hold. British diplomats say Cameron’s visit is being rescheduled but a date has yet to be announced.
