Barça clings to the Chilean way to be champion

first_imgThere are several nuances that make the case of Católica different from that of Barça, in any case. To start, in Chile there were six days left to compete for the eleven that remain in Spain. That is, almost half. In addition, and above all, the advantage that Católica had over its pursuer, Colo-Colo, was 13 points, for the two that Barça has a margin with respect to Madrid.The measure was controversial, in any case, because it also affected the teams classified for the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana. Those who still had options to qualify and were not in access positions at that time, were ruled out. The federation also determined that there would be no declines. Measures that were put to the vote and that found the majority support of Chilean soccer. It would be necessary to see what would happen in Spain … The possibility of Barcelona being the league champion without contesting the remaining eleven days is one of those handled in the suspended championship scenario in which Spanish football is currently located. Although LaLiga and the soccer players are in favor of playing what remains, the tremendous problems of the calendar can make it possible to find solutions of all kinds. One of them would be to conclude the League with the current classification as valid. In other words, Barcelona would be champion and Madrid second. A controversial ending, no doubt.The reality is that this cabal has already occurred on other occasions. The closest occurred in the last national championship in Chile. Then, as a consequence of the serious social revolts that the country experienced at the end of last year, the decision was the same that would now favor Barcelona: to name the leader champion at the time of the cessation of the tournament. In that case it was the Catholic University, which entered the list of winners despite the fact that the calendar was not finalized.last_img read more

Soccer adapts to telework

first_imgAnother point is that of the injured, whose plan requires more outside help. “It is difficult to treat them at a distance. This serves to sharpen your wits and develop tools. Discomfort, for example, is challenging. With videos and photos we can show them how to treat themselves, “confesses Dioni González, coordinator of the Granada medical services.On the other hand, as in so many companies, the video conference (and WhatsApp) It’s a resource. For example, Leganés trains for streaming. Pol Lorente, physical trainer, directs them online Twitch, with the particularity that any fan can follow them. “Already in 83 I did it on TV Eva Nasarre,” says Lorente. Simeone is giving tactical sessions, Although the video goes beyond what is strictly labor. Zidane hooked up with his boys on Friday, like made the Espanyol squad, just to chat and share. Via video the technical secretariats and analysts work.And then there are The health monitoring —To take the temperature— and nutrition, as important. Players have a rigorous eating plan. For example, Sporting sends food to their players at home, supervised by nutritionist Beatriz Manchón. There are more clubs with catering service. Espanyol insists on the importance of vegetables, fish and hydration. Just in case, Rubi gives a trick: “Have them try a cowboy every four days. If it doesn’t cost them …”.All of the above, however, is conditioned by the duration of the break. Uncertainty grows and it is already assumed that a preseason will be needed. Meanwhile, day to day is marked by teleworking.* With information from the First and Second correspondents. “This is a break, not a vacation.” From that premise the preparation of the First and Second teams during this isolation starts which starts the fourth week. Each footballer and each coach, at home. The script of this crisis precipitated the braking in the competition and, therefore, a change of plan with the inconvenience of not knowing how long it will take. Thus, soccer adapts as it can to telework, under a general scheme: keep fit, take care of diet and, of course, monitor any symptoms of illness. And patience.The first to close were Valencia and Real Madrid. Your templates went home with a detailed and individualized physical plan, the line followed by all the teams, and in the networks it has been possible to see many players at work. However, the clubs ask for measure with what they show from what was said before: “It is not a vacation.” Whites’ physical trainer, Dupont, control yours from home through the vests they wear and he is tweaking the plan. Even, Captain Che, stresses the need to take care of the line: “You have to take it seriously, also the weight. When the competition resumes, it will not forgive “.The priority, in addition to not getting it, is that footballers do not lose shape because the competition may revive at a frenetic pace. “It is about doing exercises to maintain mobility and stability of the arthro-muscular system and aerobic capacity by stimulating the cardio-respiratory system”, explains Javi Navarro, Levante physical trainer. One of the biggest fears is the punishment in the form of muscle injuries that the return may bring.So, the clubs provided the machinery for the players necessary to do the exercises from home, although many had their own gym, but not as many as you think. “We adapt the sessions to the space. Some have more and we can do more, “says Xabi Gil, coach of Betis, who hopes that the players do not accuse this situation too much:” This work and the responsibility for food, weight and hours of sleep will facilitate an optimal return. “last_img read more

Govt announces $20 minibus fare increase

first_imgBeginning September, passengers will be required to pay an additional $20 to minibus operators, who ply their trade in the various routes.This was announced on Monday by the Business Ministry, which noted that the decision stemmed from a recent meeting held with the Minibus Association.According to the Business Ministry, a new fare structure will be made available to minibus drivers, who will then be responsible for displaying same in their buses.In addition to this, the two parties have noted that plans are also ahead to establish a code of conduct for bus drivers in light of several reports.The President of the United Minibus Union (UMU), Eon Andrews, said during an interview with this publication that he is satisfied with the Ministry’s decision to implement a $20 increase. He said, “It might not be a lot, but we are satisfied.”In relation to the code of conduct for bus drivers, Andrews informed that the Ministry is currently in talks with the Union to have the operators trained so as to be able to up their game in the area of hospitality.Moreover, he said that uniformity is on the list of things to be addressed.In June, the President of the Minibus Union submitted a proposal for not only a fare increase, but for several other requests to ease the pressure on minibus drivers.Although the call for a fare increase came at a time where fuel prices were constantly escalating, Andrews had noted that the call for the additional money was not only due to the fuel prices, but several other issues. Because of this, the Union’s President said even if the fuel prices lower, he would not be willing to drop the transportation costs.“We are saying that, Yes, there are increases in many other things. We are not basing our argument on fuel, because we don’t control that in this country,” he said.“We did not really like the idea of the new tyres because they only lasting like six months, and they’re very expensive. We want to look at the tyres. There were a lot of 100 per cent increases in the last budget; you know, Interest Tax, licence, everything; (so we want to know) how they’re going to be able to help us. If they could reduce certain things, it would ease (the strain on persons), because we are more concerned that the consumer doesn’t have to carry this load,” the UMU head explained.Guyana Times understands that the Union had initially requested $20 for short drop bus drivers and $40 for drivers who traverse the longer routes.last_img read more

Ballon D’Or host apologises as ‘twerk’ request causes storm

first_imgThe incident was a major talking point despite Hegerberg’s achievement in becoming the first winner of the women’s Ballon D’Or, an award which has been handed to male footballers since 1956.Solveig, a musician and radio host, apologised in person to Hegerberg and said he was “astonished” at the reaction.“Guys I’m a little bit amazed, astonished by what I’m reading on the internet,” he said in a video posted on Twitter.“Of course I didn’t want to offend anyone… This was a joke, probably a bad one and I want to apologise for the one I may have offended.”As footage of the incident went viral, British tennis player Andy Murray led the backlash when he thundered: “Why do women still have to put up with that shit?”“What questions did they ask (Kylian) Mbappe and (Luka) Modric?” he posted on Instagram, referring to the winners of the best young player and the men’s Ballon D’Or.“I’d imagine something to do with football.“And to everyone who thinks people are overreacting and it was just a joke… it wasn’t. I’ve been involved in sport my whole life and the level of sexism is unreal.”Hegerberg, 23, whose goals propelled Lyon to a record fifth Champions League title and their 12th consecutive domestic crown, played down the controversy and said it hadn’t marred her evening.“I didn’t feel it was like that at all to be honest and I am sad if people thought about the situation like that,” Hegerberg said after the show.She added: “He came to see me after and apologised. The Ballon d’Or is the most important thing.”Before the ceremony, Hegerberg told The Guardian that she found it “really frustrating” that sport remains “such a man’s world”.“Sometimes it’s really frustrating, I must say. Sometimes you have episodes or situations where you feel like, damn, we’re in such a man’s world,” she said in an interview.“But at the same time I’ve never looked at myself different from men’s football. I’ve always felt the same — I work hard to try to achieve my dreams, like every other girl out there.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Norwegian forward Ada Hegerberg (R) stands alongside French DJ and producer Martin Solveig (L) after receiving the 2018 women’s Ballon d’Or award. © AFP / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Dec 4 – French DJ Martin Solveig apologised and said he was taken aback by the stormy reaction online after he asked the inaugural women’s Ballon D’Or winner Ada Hegerberg whether she could “twerk” live on stage.The awards co-host in Paris provoked a torrent of complaints about sexism with his question about the sexually suggestive dance, which received a blunt “No” from the unamused Norwegian striker.last_img read more

Dancing with Knight’s star

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Williams, who has 12 double-doubles this year, notched a triple-double (20 points, 11 rebounds, 10 steals) in her first career varsity game, a 58-39 victory Nov. 30 over Paraclete. The 5-foot-10 forward – also a two-time Golden League shot put champion in track and field – has four double-doubles in her past five games, including a career-high 31 points and 14 rebounds Jan. 6 against Antelope Valley. “Jahne is a super athlete,” Henderson said. “She’s got this happy-go-lucky personality, and she likes to joke a lot, but she is serious when she needs to be.” Williams is a Division I college prospect who is working on her game. She sometimes jumps passing lanes too aggressively, committing unnecessary fouls – she has 69 fouls this season – and foul trouble has limited her playing time in some games. And she is hesitant to dribble to her left. “There’s always room for improvement,” Williams acknowledged. “I don’t think I’m the best I’ll ever be. I know I need to improve defensively.” There are some athletes who like to listen to music before games. Others prefer to survey the opposition or talk strategy with coaches. Then there’s Jahne Williams, a junior on the Knight High girls’ basketball team. “She dances,” Knight assistant coach Danny Henderson said. “Most girls try and focus before games. They don’t talk. (Head coach Shawn Johnson and I) joke that Jahne won’t get hurt on the court, but dancing on the sidelines before the game.” Henderson says he believes this carefree spirit has contributed to Williams’ success on the court. In 21 games this year, the first-year varsity player has team highs of 16.6 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.8 steals per game. Lancaster coach John Gallen, whose Eagles beat Knight 56-41 on Jan. 4, says Lancaster senior Andrea Bobic and Palmdale junior Brittney Lloyd are Williams’ equals. “But there’s no question,” Gallen said. “To beat Knight, you have to first stop Jahne Williams.” Although not expected to seriously contend for the league title, Knight (11-10 overall, 4-2 Golden), in its first year as a varsity program, is in third place, behind Palmdale (10-10, 5-0) and Lancaster (10-4, 3-1). Knight also is receiving significant contributions from sophomore Gelenda Loving (11.9 points per game) and junior Nicole Troncoso (8.9 rebounds per game). The Hawks, who have no seniors, play host to Lancaster Tuesday and Palmdale on Feb. 3. Upset victories could catapult Knight atop the standings, but don’t expect the magnitude of those games to deter Williams from her pregame routine. “Jahne is such a stress-reducer,” Johnson said. “She is so lighthearted, sometimes goofy, but she knows exactly when to turn it on. She really hates to lose.” Kevin Connelly, (818) 713-3607 dnlasports@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MUM-OF-FIVE CONNED BUSINESSES OUT OF ALMOST €7,000 WITH BOGUS CHEQUEBOOK

first_imgA woman who was given a cheque-book by a bank to start a new business defrauded 25 other companies across Donegal out of almost €7,000 of goods.Ms Devine cashed a number of cheques across Donegal.Fiona Devine, 41, approached the AIB bank to start a second-hand furniture business in Letterkenny. She was told the loan application for €10,000 was looking good and was even given a cheque-book.The mother-of-five began purchasing various items over a six week period between September and October in 2013.However, two weeks alter she was told by the AIB that the loan application was being refused but could appeal the decision.But Ms Devine continued to cash various cheques in towns across Donegal including Letterkenny, Milford, Burt, Fanad, Ramelton, Ballybofey and Convoy to the value of €6,778.34.Solicitor Michael Shiel, said his client, of 18 St Columba’s Terrace, Letterkenny, was realistically never going to get her business off the ground.He said she suffered from bi-polar disorder and handed a medical report into Letterkenny District Court.He said Ms Devine had bought a number of items including a laptop computer, kettle, electric blanket and toaster which had not even been taken out of their wrapping.The court heard that cash was also drawn down on top of the cheques for goods and that no compensation had been received by any of the companies defrauded.In total she faced 51 charges of theft and making gain or causing loss by deception.Mr Shiel added that a compensation order could be made but the reality was that Ms Devine was of limited means.He added that her father had recently suffered a stroke and any money she had was spent looking after him.Judge Paul Kelly noted that Ms Devine had written the court a very elegant letter outlining her situation.He found her guilty on a number of sample charges of the total of 50 charges before the court and dismissed the other 48 charges.He fined her €250, made a compensation order against her and also ordered that she enter a 12 month probation bond.MUM-OF-FIVE CONNED BUSINESSES OUT OF ALMOST €7,000 WITH BOGUS CHEQUEBOOK was last modified: April 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AIBBusinesschequebookdonegalFiona Devineletterkennylast_img read more
