Chelsea line-up v Sunderland: Mourinho to rotate squad ahead of busy schedule?

first_img1 Jose Mourinho may opt to rotate his squad this weekend Chelsea continued their unbeaten start to the season with a comprehensive 5-0 demolition of Schalke 04 – a result that takes their run to a hugely impressive 19 matches in all competitions.CLICK HERE TO SEE THE UNBEATEN START RECORD CHELSEA ARE TARGETING THAT THE ARSENAL ‘INVINCIBLES’ GOT NOWHERE NEAR!Few would bet against the Blues extending that this weekend, as they travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland – live and exclusive on talkSPORT, Saturday from 5pm.But despite being in 14th place going into the weekend, the Black Cats can take confidence from a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge last season that thwarted Chelsea’s title challenge.The big question is whether Jose Mourinho will make many changes, that his preferred first 11 is playing so well and there are no new injury worries.But that must be weighed up alongside the consideration that Chelsea face 10 matches in 34 days, including eight Premier League fixtures, as they continue their silverware assault on every front.With that in mind, Mourinho may be tempted to start rotating his side in order to stave off injuries and keep his players fresh.The old adage says that you should never change a winning team, but Mourinho’s tendency to go against convention hints that he may use this opportunity to his advantage.Below is how Chelsea could line-up against Sunderland if Mourinho rotates the side:While changes may be expected, they will not be wholesale. Mourinho will be acutely aware of Sunderland’s ability to shock the Blues, having done so twice last year, so will want to ensure his side are in good shape to secure three points first and foremost.The squad depth he is blessed with however, means that the Portuguese can call on a wealth of experience without compensating on quality. We believe that any change will come in attack and possibly defence, with Andre Schurrle perhaps warranting a start in place of Willian and possibly Filipe Luis getting the nod over the hugely impressive, yet frequently used Cesar Azpilicueta.But Mourinho may opt for his strongest team for a potentially tricky away game, in which case, the Blues could line up like this… 1 Chelsea fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Sunderland? Comment below…Sunderland v Chelsea is live and exclusive on talkSPORT, Saturday from 5pm. Click here for more.last_img read more

Former YKHC Network Manager Indicted for Child Porn Distribution

first_imgGene Geisler. Photo from LinkedIn.A former computer network manager at the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation is accused of possessing and distributing vast amounts of child pornography.Download AudioAn Anchorage grand jury on Tuesday indicted 38-year-old Gene Geisler on 76 counts of child pornography possession and distribution.Prosecutors allege the man used the hospital’s network infrastructure to distribute the pornography as well as his home computers. Officials say Geisler is at large and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.Adam Alexander is an assistant attorney general with the office of special prosecutions for the state of Alaska. He says information first came up in August of 2014 and they issued search warrants in September.“Over 500 pounds of digital devices were seized that examination involved an examination of over 80 digital devices, each requiring a pretty serious expenditure of resources and time,” said Alexander.Of the 76 counts, 20 are for distribution. Prosecutors say he shared videos with an investigator through peer-to peer-software. Investigators identified 56 children in photos that prosecutors believe represent known victims of child sexual exploitation identified through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In total, Geisler is charged with possessing two million images and 13-thousand videos, amounting to 29 terabytes of child pornography.“This is, as alleged one of the more significant cases just in terms of the raw quantity of data and the number of images of child sexual exploitation involved,” said Alexander.Alexander says there’s no indication or charges related to Geisler being involved in making of child pornography but he says the investigation is ongoing.YKHC officials confirm Geisler was employed at YKHC in the IT department, but did not want to comment further, other than to say that they are cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.Geisler’s LinkedIn profile says he worked at three IT positions at YKHC after March 2011. YKHC officials could not say when Geisler left YKHC, but did confirm that he is no longer employed there. The profile says from July 2013 to September 2014 he worked as a network, telecom, server, virtualization, and systems manager for YKHC, managing a team of ten people. A spokesperson says the dates on Geisler’s LinkedIn profile look accurate.In August of last year, investigators saw videos coming from a location in Bethel. When they came to town, they visited YKHC and Geisler’s home. There they saw a computer downloading images. He explained that he could piggyback on the hospital’s network from home.He initially denied involvement in child porn, but in a later interview admitted that he had images and videos on his computers. In later search warrants, investigators examined dozens of devices, including a private server he installed at YKHC for use. During the investigation, he fled the state.For the last six months, his profile says he’s worked for the Navy in North Charleston, South Carolina, in the advanced technology SPAWAR group.Officials ask people with information about Geisler to contact the Alaska Bureau of Investigation. He faces two to 12 years in prison for each count, if convicted, and could face 99 years behind bars.KYUK’s Daysha Eaton contributed to this story.last_img read more
