first_imgIs there a Pellicer effect? Malaga has added this week four of the six points at stake with Sergio Pellicer as coach. A circumstance that has brought some tranquility in the thick sea that is lived in the club of La Rosaleda especially after the publicity of the sadly intimate video of Víctor Sánchez del Amo. Pellicer, who wore the blue and white elastic between 1995 and 1997 knows the club perfectly because, in addition to working in lower categories, he was part of different technical bodies in the first team.Interim Technician After the dismissal of Victor, the club decided to appoint Pellicer “interim coach” (sweetened way of saying ‘provisional coach’. This is the usual thing. If he wins, he stays; if he loses he leaves; if he wins three straight games and then he loses four, goodbye, but there is another reading whether he wins or loses: what happens in this economically blocked entity, with the mystic levitations of the horrific president / tweeter? Well, as the song says, “no money no longer is there rock and roll? “For you to understand. The quarry will continue to rescue Malaga both on the grass and on the bench.The ‘Victor case’ remains open. Investigations to clarify this bizarre affair continue. Two new detainees who were subsequently released, but on condition of investigated. We still have one of Victor’s phrases in his massive press conference last Wednesday. “I am overwhelmed. 960 profiles investigated.” It is a matter of extreme gravity. Harassment, extortion and vilification of the public image of a person. It can happen to anyone. And that is the most serious.Iván Rodríguez and the Ponferradina. It seems that this right side can find a way out of his “player without a chip”. Your more than possible destination may be Ponferradina. The team at El Bierzo is having a very interesting season and Ponferrada, one of the cradles of pop-rock in the 80s of last century, is an ideal place for you to feel like a footballer again. Great signing for the Ponfe.José Rodríguez and Numancia. Another of those who ran out of file. He arrived from Mainz 05 risking everything because he wanted to play at La Rosaleda. He signed a contract until 2023. Soria can also be a good option to smell like turf and competition. Antoñín and the Getafe. The football stuff. If Okazaki had not gone to Huesca, Antoñín would be dead of disgust in Third. Now it is little less than a salvation insurance for Malaga that needs to raise money anyway. Several First teams were interested in him, among them, Leganés and Sevilla among others. The offer was made by Getafe, 1.5 million euros. Málaga wanted 2.5 and to remain on loan in the Costa Rican team until the end of the course. This is a signing ’very Getafe’.Benkhemassa, five yellow. The Algerian is the signing imposed by Al Thani that has played the most minutes. 577 minutes distributed in 13 games have given him to accumulate five reprimands that will not allow him to play the next match against Mirandés (Sunday 26 12:00 hours). Another endBuenacasa injury. Malaga is not having any luck with injuries. The last example is Buenacasa. The striker was injured 12 minutes after jumping to the pitch of Fuenlabreño Torres. He suffers discomfort on the back of his right leg. Pending evolution.Judicial depression. The judge of the court 14 of Malaga dismissed the judicial intervention of the club requested by the Association of Small Shareholders (APA) and in which the City Council appeared. The magistrate wants more information and therefore requires a resource for reform. The fans relied on justice as a hope to get the deceased president / tweeter and official sinker out of the club, the foul Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani.The happy fashion of leaving the locker room clean. Malaga, once the players finished showering and preparing to leave the stadium, left the locker room untouched. Clean as a whistle, with nothing in between, all collected, as it was before the team gave it use. A detail that Fuenlabrada thanked with an affectionate message through his official Twitter account. “You are in the category that you are, you will always be Champions.”Hippodrome and tea. Another proof that the working life of Al Thani is reduced to social networks. While Málaga is on fire with the team touched and dismissed by valuable employees, the vice president and CEO of the Nasser Al Thani club, placing the panoramic image of a steaming glass of tea on his Imstagram as a child while watching a career horses of maximum importance for the future of Malaga. Hippodrome and you Malaga will succeed despite this harmful owner who wants to load it.last_img read more

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. “My Brothers (Stills) and (Wilson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed,” Kapernick said in his tweet. “They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. … Love is at the root of our resistance.”It was Kaepernick, then with the 49ers, who sparked the anthem controversy by kneeling during the pregame ritual in 2016 — his way of protesting police brutality and social injustice in America.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Since opting out of his contract after that season, Kaepernick has been unable to land a job with an NFL team and is suing the league for collusion.But his voice is still being heard. Last week, Nike introduced an ad featuring the quarterback and his message: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.” On Sunday, Kaepernick’s message got through to his friends in Miami.“I know he has our back,” Stills said. “Really, there has been a huge difference between when we first started protesting and now. A lot of people are reaching out and supporting us, so I really appreciate that. To everybody out there … let’s keep doing our best to make positive change and have these conversations and make our country a better place.”While Stills and Wilson were kneeling during the anthem, teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist. Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco’s game at Minnesota. In Los Angeles, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist. Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Seahawks linemen Duane Brown and Quinton Jefferson, retreated to their respective tunnels while the anthem played.At the peak of the anthem protests, as many as 200 players would partake. On most weeks last year, the Seahawks led the way with the most players doing something to make a statement. Though that number had fallen to 2 to start 2018, Brown wasn’t worried.“I made my decision. That was my decision,” he said. “I wasn’t paying attention to see what other teams or other players are doing.”ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title The NFL briefly had a policy in place in May regarding the anthem, but rescinded it after the players union filed a grievance, which sent the league to the negotiating table with the union. Those talks are ongoing. Brown said he hasn’t heard any word from the union dissuading player protests during the anthem.“I don’t think that would be the best idea to try to get people to move on from it,” he said. “The country hasn’t moved on from it, so I’m not going to move on from it, either.”Among those keeping the issue front and center is President Donald Trump, who sent a tweet of his own several hours before Kaepernick’s, taking digs at the NFL, and linking low ratings for Thursday night’s opener between Atlanta and Philadelphia (lowest for an opener since 2008) to players who refuse to stand for the anthem.“If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!” he tweeted.CBS and Fox, which carried Sunday afternoon’s games, have said they did not plan on televising the anthem.However, NBC did show the anthem on Thursday night (but not before Sunday night’s Bears-Packers game), and no players kneeled or protested in other ways.That included Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles, who raised his fist during the anthem last season but did not for the opener. During pregame warmups, he wore a shirt that read “Ca$h bail = poverty trap.”Jenkins, a founder of the Players Coalition which was formed to tackle issues similar to those Kaepernick is concerned about, said he would like to move the focus away from the anthem.“I think there’s a huge need for us to turn the attention to not only the issues, but what players are actually doing in their communities to promote change,” he said. “We’re trying to move past the rhetoric of what’s right or what’s wrong in terms of the anthem, and really focus on the systematic issues that are plaguing our communities.” View comments LATEST STORIES Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills (10) and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson (15) kneel during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Miami Gardens, Fla.

first_img2 months laterTwo months after retired Judge and Senior Counsel (SC) Stanley Moore was hired to probe the employment practices at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), the investigation is not yet complete.Retired Judge Stanley Moore, SC, was selected to oversee the probe into GECOM’s hiring practicesHowever, Guyana Times was reliably informed that the three-man team is close to wrapping up the inquiry with a view to completing the investigation before year end.Justice Moore, in collaboration with former Deputy Commissioner of Police Lloyd Smith and human resources consultant Jairam Petam, was to complete the investigation in three weeks during October. However, the time was extended as the probe widened.The investigation was launched after People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) GECOM Commissioners Bibi Shadick, Sase Gunraj and Robeson Benn wrote a letter of complaint to the ERC, contending that there was an ethnic imbalance at GECOM and hiring practices were being manipulated in favour of one group. After these allegations were made, the ERC had scheduled a meeting with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, where the matters were raised. The ERC also met with President David Granger at that time.At a press conference prior to the probe, GECOM Chairman and retired Justice James Patterson had said that qualifications ultimately trumped race when filling vacancies. When asked whether deliberate efforts to achieve racial diversity were being made, Patterson had contended that deliberate efforts were being made to get the best people and that he had “no apologies” for that.ERC Chairman, Reverend Dr John Smith was hoping that the probe would have been completed before the November 12, 2018 Local Government Elections (LGE).The ERC is a constitutional body established under the Herdmanston Accord. It works with persons and agencies to promote harmonious ethnic relations. The Commission also deals with complaints, promotes training in racial harmony, and fosters a sense of security, among all ethnic groups.Justice Moore had served as a Home Affairs Minister under former President LFS Burnham during the Administration of the People’s National Congress (PNC).The PPP/C Commissioners had registered complaints of Chairman Patterson using his post to muzzle them on the issue of hiring practices. Commissioner Benn had highlighted issues regarding the ethnic composition of the workforce of the secretariat of the Commission, having pointed out that the perception was that the vast majority of the staff of the Commission were persons of one ethnicity. However, the Chairman disputed the Commissioner’s claim.The PPP/C Commissioners had said that the Chairman prevented Benn from further defending his position and when challenged, adjourned the meeting for over half an hour.Their allegations followed by an earlier statement made by executive member of the PPP, Dr Roger Luncheon who made allegations against GECOM regarding the same issue.last_img read more

first_imgElaine Freeman, a member of the district’s board, said smoking has been banned at beaches and parks in other Southern California communities, and members of her board want to consider the issue here. “It’s healthier and it follows the trend in other communities, especially in athletic situations with youth sports. It’s something that evolved as it became apparent this was a concern,” she said. “We are trying to promote health and healthy lifestyles for kids.” The ban would include the district’s four large community parks – Rancho Simi, Rancho Santa Susana, Rancho Tapo and Rancho Madera – all considered highly active areas where large numbers of people regularly congregate. Other parks in the proposed ban include Big Sky Park, home of Simi Valley Girls Softball; Darrah Volunteer Park, home of the Simi Valley Baseball League; Houghton-Schreiber Park, home of Santa Susana Boys Baseball; Knolls Park, used by Simi Valley Little League; the section of Santa Susana Park used by Simi Valley Little League; and Sinaloa Youth Ballfields, home of Simi Youth Baseball. eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602 If you go The Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District board will discuss banning smoking in some parks during its meeting at 6:30 p.m. May 17 at 1692 Sycamore Drive.

Colleen Janssen, a park district spokeswoman, noted that California already bans smoking in parks near children’s play areas, but the local park district has been receiving complaints from youth sports groups about people smoking near dugouts and in the bleachers. “Somebody will light up a cigarette and stand next to the dugouts, and the kids have no ability to get away from it,” she said. “In the bleachers, the other spectators can’t get away from it. The softball and baseball leagues have an ongoing concern about this issue. We decided for the health and safety of the children, we would step forward.” last_img read more

PHOTO/Sports.uzNAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 26- A late goal from Doston Tursunov saw hosts Uzbekistan pick up a narrow 1-0 win over Kenya’s Under-23 team in a friendly match at the Istiqlal Stadium on Monday evening.The reigning Asian Under-23 champions revenged for the 2-1 loss they suffered under the Kenyan side coached by Mathare United tactician Francis Kimanzi on Friday, scoring six minutes into stoppage time. Kimanzi made only one change from that team that won last week, Vihiga United centre back Bernard Ochieng starting ahead of striker Chris Onyango with Joseph Okumu retaining the captaincy.The hosts came into the tie charged to make amends from their misgivings in the first of the two friendly games, taking the game into Kenya’s half from the first minute.However, the defence marshalled by Okumu managed to hold their own and ensure they didn’t collapse under pressure.Uzbekistan continued with the pressure in the second half, camping in Kenya’s half and forcing teh Kenyans into tackles that resulted in dangerous set pieces, but none could trouble the backline.From a good scoring position in the 52nd minute, Uzbekistan won a free-kick but Islam Kenjabayev drove it straight to the wall and booted the rebound way up into the stands.From a swift counter attack, Kenya nearly broke the deadlock after 54 minutes. Bolton Omwenga broke away on the left and curled in a wonderful cross, but Piston Mutamba’s connection came up against the upright.Ulinzi Stars midfielder Ibrahim Shambi followed it up with the goalkeeper down, but his header from the edge of the six yard box came off the crossbar.The hosts knew they had to act fast to get a goal and Aziz Turghunbev came close when he dribbled into his favourite left foot, unleashed a dipping effort from range but keeper Timothy Odhiambo pushed it behind for a corner.The home side kept pushing and were awarded in virtually the last minute of play when Tursunov broke into the box to head home a cross from the right.The team now comes back home with lots of positives from the two games with the eyes fixed on next year’s African Under-23 Championships which will also act as Africa’s qualifiers for the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgUp to half of Donegal’s post offices will be forced to close if An Post loses the contract for making Social Welfare payments, the Irish Postmasters’ Union said yesterday.IPU General Secretary Brian McGann said the post-office network would be “decimated” and hundreds of job losses if the Department of Social Protection pushes ahead with plans to put the welfare payments contract out to tender.The future of the contract is currently being considered by the Department of Social Protection and a decision is expected shortly. Speaking at yesterday’s (SUN) IPU annual conference in Letterkenny’s Radisson Hotel, Mr McGann said any plans by Government to withdraw the social welfare payment contract will also have a disastrous affect on the social fabric of the country.“Any decision to move away from using the Post Office as the primary channel for making Social Welfare payments will be politically disastrous on the scale of Charlie McCreevy’s ill fated plan to decentralise Government Departments.“Many Social Welfare recipients want to use their local Post Offices because it’s friendly, convenient and accessible.“Local Post Offices also play a vital role in preventing fraud because of the face to face nature of its role. Postmasters are highly committed to detecting and stamping out fraud. We see the people, meet the people and we know them because they are part of our community. “This deters fraudsters who often rely on faceless, impersonal systems of payment to perpetrate their fraud,” Mr McGann said.The President of the IPU, Brian Cannon, whose post office has been in his family for 100 years in Leitermacaward, said he will lose 80% of his business is social welfare payments are taken from An Post.“That’s the reality of the situation. The local post office network is making strides to keep up with the demands of modern life.“But if the social welfare payment contract is taken away, it will be a massive blow to us – a blow which many post offices could not survive. Personally it would mean a reduction of 80% of my business,” he said.IPU General Secretary Mr McGann called on the Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, to give a greater role to Post Offices in delivering welfare services. “We want to add value to what we do and there is no reason why Post Offices cannot also provide additional services for the Department such as signing on, means testing, identity checking etc.,” he said.“All our offices are automated, open 5½ days each week and we are an accessible part of every community throughout the Country. However, we won’t be open for business if the Department pulls the plug on the Welfare payments contract.“The last thing that communities across the country need is a decision that will force the closure of hundreds of Post Offices,” the IPU General Secretary said.The theme of the two day conference was ‘Open For Business’ with delegates also hearing calls to allow local post offices be a hub for many other services including the payment of motor tax.

At this stage, JKL looked beaten and no one would have predicted what would happen in the last 10 minutes.Going into the fourth quarter trailing 27-14, JKL would concede the first point as Maimuna Nabbbosa converted one of her two free-throws.JKL then went on a run of 7-0 and reduced the deficit to just 8 points but UCU would respond and took their advantage to 11 (49-38) with 5:27 on the clock.From there, it was all JKL as they went on a 12-1 run to win the game 51-50.Hope Akello and Oyella starred for JKL in the winning effort. Akello scored 12 points and picked a team-high 9 rebounds while Oyella managed 15 points off the bench.For UCU, Ageno and Rose Akon both registered a double double. Ageno scored 13 points and picked 11 rebounds while Akon managed 10 (points) and collected a massive 17 boards.The series are now tied at 3-3 with game seven coming later this week.Comments Tags: Flavia OketchoFUBA NBLJKL Lady DolphinsMuhayimuna NamuwayaRuth LetaruSarah AgenoStella OyellaUCU Lady CanonsZainah Lokwamerilast_img read more
