first_imgOn this occasion, Real Sociedad, Athletic, Granada and Mirandés have passed. The first two have been champions. The txuri-urdin have two Cups (the first, in 1909 as San Sebastian Cycling Club) and the lions can recover the flavor of the victory they have lost since 1984. The Nasrids were runners-up against Barça in 1959 in the Bernabeu. And the mirandeses have reached their second semifinals representing the humble.Athletic has not thrown into the water its famous barge of champions for 36 years. During this time a Super Cup, but it is a minor trophy for a club with the history of Bilbao. Yesterday he achieved something that resisted him since 1960: eliminating Barcelona in the Cup. In recent years he had become the black beast, with three Barça finals. The Cup of the modest revolution It has brought a curiosity: in the semifinals there is none of the last 32 champions. The Real won the KO tournament in 1987 against Athletic in La Romareda, on penalties. None of those who have lifted the trophy since then survive in the current edition. There have been ten teams with that privilege. The Barça raised the twisted ten times, which served to surpass the Athletic as king of Cups (he is 30, by 23 lions). Madrid teams, Real and Atlético, have been crowned four times. This time they have bitten the dust, before the Royal Society and Cultural Leonesa, respectively. They have not fared this time to Zaragoza and Valencia, with three. Two took to their showcases Depor, Sevilla and Espanyol; and a Betis and Mallorca.last_img read more

first_imgSergio Ramos turns 34 today, proving that age, more than ID, depends on the person. Until the break for the coronavirus, His performance in 2019-20 had been very high in defense and attack. Also in intangibles that it controls perfectly, like a leadership Easily noticeable from outside doors and widely recognized by peers internally. Those will be his letters when he sits at the negotiating table with Madrid for his renewal. It does not paint on the way to roses: He ends his contract in 2021, he wants to sign for two more seasons and the club, which has not yet called him, would offer him one. Another of the captain’s strengths will be its evident importance for Zidane. The Frenchman, who does not miss an opportunity to praise him in public (in February he supported him in his desire to go to the Games, before the postponement), This course has been given 3,033 minutes. He is the second player in the squad he has used the most, only behind Casemiro (3,120). 4 In 2018-19 he achieved his best record, scoring 11 goals, a figure that would already be meritorious in a midfielder, even more so in a central defender. In the current one he had laid the foundations of his personal record, with 7. He went into quarantine, in fact, as the second highest scorer in the squad, tied with Rodrygo and surpassed by Benzema (19). No defender in the big five has scored more goals than he has in the last decade … A shot, his best seasonRamos’ statistics, who have missed five games since summer (two due to suspension, as many due to injury and the rest due to rest), show his nonconformity.

first_imgHe has not yet met with Santa Clarita’s COBRA team, which investigates juvenile crime, but deputies were briefed after the local “door-knock” burglaries. Two or three gang members often cruise upscale neighborhoods during the day – sometimes in cars they’ve stolen during burglaries – scoping out homes whose occupants are gone, authorities said. They break a rear window or door to gain entry if no one answers their knock at the front door, quickly grabbing valuables. Residents who open the door may be asked for directions or the whereabouts of a nonexistent occupant. Gang members also roam on foot, empty backpacks at the ready, to fill with cash, jewelry, small electronics – such as coveted iPods – or even plasma TVs, which they pawn or sell hours later. Members of the African-American gang may be convening in Santa Clarita parks to shoot hoops and organize before a strike, according to a station memo. Their tattoos usually feature dollar signs with the phrases “On Point,” “Ballerz,” “Bloods On Point” or “Money before bitches.” Dozens of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies converged on central Lancaster in late March for a four-day sweep to reduce burglaries, robberies and gang activity. The unprecedented move followed a community meeting for the Antelope Valley War on Gangs and Crime that drew 3,000 people. The gangsters are seeking the path of least resistance since Antelope Valley deputies arrested about 40 members following a months-long investigation, officials said. Anyone with information on the Santa Clarita burglaries can contact the detective bureau at (661) 799-5138. “We actually got the call about items being pawned in Palmdale prior to one of the victims discovering he was a victim of burglary,” she said. The gang – an offshoot of the notorious Bloods – has been tied to more than 200 home burglaries, auto thefts, carjackings, commercial burglaries, and armed and strong-arm robberies in the Antelope Valley within a six-month span. The suspects in the Santa Clarita robbery are Parvin Tanner, 20, of Palmdale; Allen Brooks, 18, of Palmdale; and an unidentified 16-year-old, who lives in California City. Tanner and Brooks are each being held in lieu of $200,000 bail. Lancaster sheriff’s Sgt. Derek Yoshino met with Kern County officials, who confirmed that the group has ventured there. “They’re going to go wherever they’re not being targeted,” he said. SANTA CLARITA – Antelope Valley sheriff’s deputies have been successful in cracking down on a local gang blamed for more than 200 felonies – but they’re finding that the gangsters got the message and moved on to Santa Clarita and Kern County. Local deputies wary of the gang’s maneuvers are keeping a watchful eye since gangsters were arrested last month on suspicion of burglarizing Santa Clarita homes. “We are trying to prevent this gang from coming to Santa Clarita and treating us as easy targets,” Lt. Brenda Cambra said. On March 13, Palmdale deputies arrested three men on suspicion of burglary after they pawned property stolen from Santa Clarita homes earlier that day, Cambra said. last_img read more

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — After discussions that began last month at a Dec. 14 council meeting, a new deal has been agreed on for remuneration services from Dugal Smith and Associates.The original quoted price was $20,000 plus expenses, which quite a few councillors felt was too high a price for the task at hand.City staff worked to lower the price by $6,000 by changing the work involved and providing data so that Dugal Smith and Associates wouldn’t have to spend extra time digging it up if not warranted. This brought the total asking price to $14,000 plus expenses.- Advertisement -Fort St. John’s current remuneration policy doesn’t expire until 2017. Early that year, City Council will establish another citizen review committee — to determine if the remuneration remains within the range of comparable communities.Under the current policy, the Mayor’s remuneration is $62,132, and for councillors its $23,300 — both from December 2014 to November 2017.  The acting Mayor’s remuneration for Councillors is $500 per month.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool FC club Ambassador Ian Rush (L) and AS Roma Sporting Director Ramon Monchi shake hands as they pose with the Champions League trophy © AFP / Fabrice COFFRINILONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 13 – Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool stars that Roma’s epic comeback against Barcelona proves the Italian club shouldn’t be underestimated when they clash in the Champions League semi-finals.Klopp could have been forgiven for feeling relieved that Liverpool avoided holders Real Madrid and formidable German champions Bayern Munich in Friday’s draw. But the Liverpool manager insists Roma will present a formidable barrier to his team’s bid to reach the Champions League final for the first time since 2007.Roma may lack the star power of their last four rivals, but the Italians underlined their quality by recovering from a 4-1 first leg deficit to eliminate Barcelona with a stunning 3-0 success in the second leg on Tuesday.At the same time as Roma’s comeback for the ages, Liverpool were easing into the semi-finals with a 5-1 aggregate success against Premier League leaders Manchester City.“I tried to think about what I feel, but it was not that I thought ‘Thank God not Bayern, thank God not Real Madrid, yippee Roma’ or the other way around,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.“Whichever opponent we would have got, I would have said there is a chance because it is football – so there is a chance against Roma.“But if anybody think this is the easiest draw then I cannot help this person; they obviously didn’t see both games against Barcelona.“The second leg was outstanding, it was outstanding what they did. They should have probably won four or five-nil – I was really impressed.”– Special atmosphere –Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after his side beat Man City again © AFP / Paul ELLISLiverpool will host the first leg against Roma at Anfield on April 24 before heading to Italy for the return leg on May 2.Asked if he felt playing the second leg at home — as they did against Barcelona — would be an advantage for Roma, Klopp insisted Liverpool could cope with the intense Stadio Olimpico atmosphere.“The teams are all too strong. The atmosphere is always important, of course. In our tie it was not too important, in Real Madrid – Juventus it wasn’t too important, but for Rome it obviously was important,” he said.“I think they will think it is an advantage, but it all depends on the first result. Of course, whatever happens, as long as you are in the race there is always a chance wherever it is, so I am fine with it.”Liverpool fans gave a hostile reception to City in the quarter-final at Anfield, bombarding the team bus with bottles in shocking scenes outside the stadium.Klopp apologised after that incident, but he expects the atmosphere in the stadium to be red-hot again.“First leg at home, I am really looking forward to it because it will be a special atmosphere. It’ll be great,” he added.Liverpool haven’t faced Roma since the 2002, but the still retain fond memories of the Eternal City after twice winning the European Cup there — once against Roma in their own stadium in 1984.The tie will also give Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah a chance to face his old club.Salah has been in superb form since leaving Roma to join Liverpool last year — scoring 39 goals.“It makes it a really interesting thing and for him, it will be 100 per cent special. He is already of interest wherever we go, but it might go crazy when we go to Rome! He can deal with that, I am sure,” Klopp said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgSAN DIEGO – Residents of million-dollar homes in a hilltop La Jolla neighborhood scrambled to rescue pets and secure belongings Wednesday after a landslide cut a 50-yard-long chasm in a four-lane street, destroying one home and damaging eight others. “The street was sinking before our eyes,” said Holli Weld, who was walking one of her sons to preschool when the ground moved. No injuries were reported, but by late afternoon the evacuation had expanded to 111 homes on three streets. The neighborhood is in an area that has a history of landslides dating back to the 1960s. The earth moved at 9 a.m. the day after city officials warned residents of four homes not to sleep in them because the land might give way. It wasn’t clear whether those residents heeded the warnings. SAN DIEGO: Evacuations are ordered of 111 La Jolla homes on historically shifty ground. By Allison Hoffman THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The landslide left a 20-foot-deep ravine overlooking Interstate 5 hundreds of feet below. Orange traffic cones and sections of big concrete pipes sat in the fissure across the crumpled residential street, which serves as a busy shortcut between the surf neighborhood of Pacific Beach to the south and the tony enclave of restaurants and shops in downtown La Jolla, a major tourist draw. Authorities said most residents had gone to work and only seven people were inside homes near the collapse when it occurred. Many homes that weren’t in the immediate slide zone were yellow-tagged – meaning that occupants could come and go but not stay overnight. Authorities evacuated 49 people from 55 homes, said Maurice Luque, a spokesman for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. They declared another 56 homes off-limits. Weld packed up her car and took her two children to her parents’ house in Pasadena, near Los Angeles, after city officials said her family couldn’t sleep in their house on the opposite side of the street from the collapse. Weld’s husband, Bryan Smith, a researcher at the University of California, San Diego, stayed behind to take care of their dog and cat. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDONEGAL TD Pearse Doherty has said that the government has no option but to ease up on austerity.Doherty said today: “This government is trying to stand on both sides of the fence. On the one hand, Michael Noonan tells us he did a great deal on the promissory notes, to the benefit for the state this year of €1 billion, and that the lengthening of loan maturities has given the state room to breathe over the next number of years.“On the other hand, he sits at a press conference today and says that he has no scope to make the budget cuts any less this year and he discounts the savings of the promissory note. “This government has to ease up on austerity. It has no choice. Since this government came to power 187,000 people have emigrated. Unemployment is at over 14%. Consistent poverty and at risk of poverty numbers have grown. The mortgage crisis has mushroomed. The domestic economy is on the floor and we’re officially back in recession.“For Michael Noonan to come out and say that despite positive savings that he’s announced, he has to make the full austerity adjustment this year, is just farcical. Either the minister doesn’t care about the impact austerity is having on the economy and society or he has overplayed his hand in terms of savings he has achieved from the promissory note arrangement. More worryingly, is he predicting a continued lack of growth in the economy and realising the adjustment this year has to be bigger just to stay on target?“The budget’s in October. The austerity choices of FG/Labour and FF to date have just damaged the economy. More austerity will damage it further. The minister needs to commit to using the promissory note savings and making this budget less austere.”  GOVERNMENT MUST MOVE TO END AUSTERITY, URGES DOHERTY was last modified: July 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:GOVERNMENT MUST MOVE TO END AUSTERITYURGES DOHERTYlast_img read more
