Carrasco, trapped in time

first_imgAlmost as if each day was the same for Carrasco, on January 31 as on April 4 he could wake up with that song by Sonny & Cher ripping his ears from the alarm clock, I got you babe. Like Bill Murray in Punxsutawney is the Belgian: Caught in time. His continuity at Atlético only depends on one thing: his performance in the month and a half that remains to be played, when everything can resume.Loaned by Dalian Yifang until June 30, FIFA is already working on expanding that link, yours and everyone in your situation: the intention is that the contracts of players and coaches that end now are automatically extended until completing the championships with their current clubs. An extension that Carrasco would embrace to leave China behind and be able to return definitively to Europe. Atlético is his ship. Converting the loan into a purchase option depends on him, they wield from the club.Without Eurocopa, postponed by the coronavirus crisis until next summer, another of the shop windows that the Belgian had, the good minutes with Atlético are his hope. In these months he will live two preseason. The first ended just as COVID-19 lowered the curtain on all tournaments and locked the world in their homes. March 11, Atlético’s last game, 40 days after his arrival, Carrasco’s minutes in the team went in crescendo: with participation in five of the six League games played (a total of 155 ’) and without it in both of the Champions. Two games in which, at least, he was one of the men on the bench, ahead, for example, of Vitolo. Second stop due to coronavirus“He is very excited”, pondered Cholo on his return two years later having left the rojiblanco club for China. With overflow, speed and goal, his possible contribution on the entire attack front, in addition to already knowing the Cholo script, were the key factors that pushed his signing, once the Via Cavani it closed.“I have matured in China”“In China I have matured. When you are young you think that only with talent is worth ”, with those statements Yannick Carrasco opened in an interview in El País on March 1, the first one he concedes after his return to Atlético. “There may be people who think you can go there with 33 years old to sign the last contract and then you don’t care if you play well or badly, I just take the money. That was not my option, I had to play well to continue in the Belgian team and be able to return to Europe. I came back for my job, I did it, I didn’t go on vacation, ”the Belgian also confessed.But he required a missing physical tip, his last game had been on December 1, curious, because of the coronavirus too, that the first league that stopped in the world was China. Now you must find her again while every morning that continues to sound on your alarm clock. Babe, uh ahah, uh ahah, I Got You Babe …last_img read more

Herstelling man brutalised by gunmen in carjacking

first_img…hours after appearing in court for hit-and-runBy Ashraf DabieAs hijackers continue to target the owners of Toyota Premio and Allion motor cars, a Herstelling tailor was the latest victim in this string of vicious crime as he was attacked by gunmen who subsequently carted off his car on Monday evening.The injured man has been identified as 24-year-old Ryan Seecharran of Third Street, Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD), who is currently on trial for a hit-and-run charge.Seecharran had just returned home, sometime after 19:00h when two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun, appeared out of nowhere, demanding money they claimed was owed to them.Injured: Ryan Seecharran displaying the lacerations to his faceThis is according to the still traumatised tailor who explained what transpired on the evening in question.“When I decided to reverse the car into the yard, two guys (one tall, red skin and big built and the other short and of African descent) they approached me in the car and say ‘wam bai, when you gon pay my f#ing money’ and the other man said ‘come out the car’,” Seecharran related.The terrified man went on to say that the shorter of the two criminals had the gun in his hand and he ended up lashing him to the head. “When the red one snatched me, he (a neighbour who was present at the time) tried to pull him off from me and he see the gun and he back off. The red one jump in the car and the black one was attempted to go in the back seat and same time he said, ‘lay down on the f#*%ing ground before I kill you’ and then is when I walk away and the men pull out and shoot up and go away.”When Guyana Times visited his residence on Tuesday, the shaken 24-year-old was seen nursing a laceration above his eye and another to his face.Meanwhile, the eyewitness who was with the victim during the attack provided a detailed account of what occurred.“We gaffing and I see the two persons walking and stop, and I didn’t really take on them. But then they walk and come and started shouting ‘where the f#*%ing money you owe me, you get the money and you nah pay me’. But when they open the car door, they start hit he,” the man outlined.Seecharran’s neighbour continued, “I said ay why you knocking the man for? What the man got for you? So when I rush up, the one move off and then the other one, I see he with the gun and I back off. And then the red one come back and run in the front seat and start up the car.”It was then that the hijackers escaped in the same direction from which they came. They were said to have fired several shots in the air as they fled the scene.Seecharran indicated that the silver grey Premio, PVV 4911, carries a value of about $2.7 million, and was only in his possession for just about a year now.This attack comes just hours after Seecharran had appeared before the court as he is accused of running over a drunken carpenter and fleeing the scene earlier this year.Reports are that on Saturday, June 24, pedestrian Kalicharran Goordial was lying on the corner of Second Street, Herstelling, when Seecharran suddenly veered north into the cross street, crushing the man to death. Seecharran was at the time driving the said Premio motor car. As a result, he was charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop and failure to render assistance but was released on $300,000 bail. Seecharran is set to return to court in November.Seecharran and his relatives are unaware as to whether or not the recent attack is related to the hit-and-run or can be linked to the series of hijackings that has been plaguing the country in recent months. Nevertheless, they are calling for the perpetrators to be located and placed behind bars as they do not wish for others to endure such a horrific experience.This publication understands that a report of the brutal attack was filed at the Providence Police Station and as such, investigations into the matter are ongoing.last_img read more

Understanding senior relocation services

first_imgAdam’s parents died nearly a decade ago, so when the time comes for his grandmother, Alice, to relocate from her family home someplace better suited for her age and ability to self-manage, Adam, 31, will be taking the reins. The Lawndale resident gets the sense that the time has come to broach the subject with Alice, 84, and to start exploring options – as she has indicated that she “just might” be ready to make a move. Meanwhile, Adam, despite being close to Alice, knows that persuading her to take advice from somebody two generations her junior won’t be easy. Working with her to establish a new life at an assisted-living professional care facility could provide either a penultimate bonding experience, or a total nightmare, depending on several things. Regardless of how it pans out, Adam knows he needs help – with how to proceed and where to turn for expert assistance. To that end, he has asked about “senior relocation services” consultants. The financial picture Alice, a widow for more 18 years, has a combined monthly retirement income of about $5,000. Adam intends to contribute $1,000 for Alice’s well-being when she moves, via an account left by his parents for that purpose. However, Alice insists that he won’t be spending a dime. Alice’s condominium, two hours northeast of Los Angeles, is worth an estimated $290,000. Plan of action For starters, Adam should encourage Alice to maintain involvement in legal and financial decision-making. Having the “life-management authority” to which she is accustomed to suddenly usurped from her entirely could cause serious resentment issues and sidetrack the noble undertaking Adam plans to pursue. The inability to manage personal affairs marks a potentially upsetting time for many seniors. Adam should take care not to make Alice seem helpless when her involvement comes into question. The following should help guide what will be a multifaceted, possibly lengthy process. Map out a basic plan. First, consult H.E.L.P. at 310-533-1996. The nonprofit organization designed to assist in senior issues. It can offer ideas for laying out a concise, easily organized financial plan in which both Adam and Alice play equal parts in managing decisions, budget inputs, and lifestyle arrangements that will keep each party in the loop. That should benefit their relationships – now both personal and business – and deter or prevent alienation. Seek out experienced professional advisers. The moving process is exhausting for anybody, but for a senior whose health is deteriorating, the stress can cause actual physical problems. So it’s smart to get others involved to lighten the loads for Adam and Alice. Choosing wisely when selecting a relocation service – professionals who specialize in relocating seniors and minimizing stressful moving jams – is paramount. Using a full-fledged moving planner will cost more than a simple moving company. Relocation services for seniors usually run about $50 to $75 an hour during the planning phase. Also, there are external service charges for whatever needs handling, from dealing with new-facility contracts to arranging for sale of valuables, to handling utilities and other basics at either end. But that help may be worth every penny to Adam, who is unschooled in such matters. It is important to choose a local planner with the appropriate credentials and good, trackable references (many people ask for references from prospective service providers and then don’t actually check them out). Another benefit of using a moving planner is that seniors who may be pushed out of the decision-making process otherwise are allowed, by design, total control over how the move plays out. Sweating the details. Many relocation advisers are associated with national organizations such as Relocation Planners LLC (877-405-7356.) They are also real-estate professionals who may have other credentials and who work on transactional and practical aspects of the move. The planner is responsible for moving the process forward and keeping other individuals involved on task. Lifting that responsibility – of negotiating rates and other financial details – from Alice’s shoulders should allow Alice the free time she needs to catalog everything in her life and begin uprooting herself. The moving planner also will coordinate all important facets of Alice’s new place, a senior-specialized complex, allowing Alice to choose floor plans, furniture, moving dates and rates, freeing her and Adam from the sometimes daunting business of organizing it all. If Adam and Alice work with a senior relocation planner, besides asking for references and credentials, they should get some sort of document detailing the costs of the service – separate from any real-estate costs or other nonplanning associated fees.

FA board votes unanimously in favour of selling Wembley Stadium to Shahid Khan

first_img Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade impact Shahid Khan is hoping the purchase of the national stadium will help him establish a NFL franchise in the UK 3 Latest Football News Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move REVEALED The American billionaire has also committed to maintaining the stadium as a possible venue for major international games, agreed to avoid sponsorship deals with gambling firms and other controversial businesses and given the FA buy-back and and sell-on clauses, should he fail to comply with conditions or sell at a later date for a profit.The FA has already said it wants to use the windfall to invest up to £1billion in much-needed community facilities – new changing rooms, better drainage for grass pitches and more 3G pitches – and this will be done via the Football Foundation, the charity it set up in 2000 with the Premier League and Sport England to invest in the grassroots. MONEY In a statement, an FA spokesperson said: “The sale of Wembley Stadium, the negotiated protections and an outlined plan to invest £600m into football community facilities, were presented and discussed at the FA Board meeting today.“Following on from this discussion, the FA Board has agreed to take the presentation to the FA Council to get its input now that the full facts are known.”Prior to the crunch meeting, it had been widely reported that the three board members from the National Game, or grassroots football, had strong reservations about the sale and the desired unanimity would be impossible, effectively killing the plan.But their concerns appear to have melted away, which will greatly encourage FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn, who have championed this idea for over a year, that they can get this over the line.
