Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) says this year’s 15th Annual Vermont Women’s Economic Opportunity Conference, set for Saturday, October 8, in Randolph, will feature a special guest: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Leahy said Justice Sotomayor will begin this year’s sessions with a question-and-answer forum with conference-goers. ‘Marcelle and I are delighted that she is coming to Vermont,’ said Leahy. ‘She personifies the American Dream, and her life and achievements already have inspired so many. She is a perfect match for this conference and its purpose.’ This is the 15th year for the popular day-long conferences, which Leahy launched 15 years ago. The free sessions will be hosted at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, Vermont, with lunch and child care included. This year’s practical, how-to workshops will offer tools for women at all stages of professional development, to expand and succeed in business planning and strategic media planning, to hone leadership skills, and to discover and apply techniques in work-and-life balance. Online registration for the conference begins September 6 at www.leahy.senate.gov(link is external). (FRIDAY, Aug. 26) — Senator Patrick Leahy

Pellegrini’s bubble may already have burst in east London Tony Cascarino believes West Ham must sack Manuel Pellegrini after defeat to Wolves made it four losses from four since the start of the season.The Hammers sit rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table as the only team not to have claimed a single point this term. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Pellegrini’s side did prevail in an EFL Cup tie against AFC Wimbledon, but they have looked completely out of sorts when facing up against their Premier League opponents.An opening day rout at Liverpool started the rot, with Bournemouth, Arsenal then Wolves also beating the east Londoners, and it’s hard to see where the first win might come from.A tough run of fixtures after the international break sees West Ham face Everton, Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs in their next five games, and there’s a good chance the London Stadium club could make it to the end of October without a point to their name.

It was alarming. They could have lost by eight.“I see similarities with QPR when they came up and had a lot of players on big wages who didn’t work as hard as they might have done.” 2 Cascarino, the former Millwall and Chelsea forward, is getting the same feeling from West Ham this season as he did from Crystal Palace last term, and he believes the Hammers must make the same decision Palace did in sacking Frank de Boer after they lost their first five games of the season without scoring a goal.Cascarino writes in his Times column: “Last year I said after four games that Frank de Boer had to get the sack at Crystal Palace and I’ve got the same feeling with Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham. Given the way they are getting beaten, I cannot see a way out for this team.“It was a big risk getting rid of David Moyes and I thought after one game of the season that I had made a mess of my pre-season predictions and should have put them down as one of my teams to go down.“Pep Guardiola gave an interview to Gary Neville at the end of last season and he said that one of his biggest demands of his players is ‘you’ve got to run’. Think about that and then look at West Ham. Some can’t run. Some on Saturday chose not to run.
