De Frutos is summoned for the match against Ponferradina

first_imgIt was something that the Canarian coach needed in his squad, put in crisis by the numerous casualties that the red-headed ones suffer from the beginning of this season. In fact, the latest news has not been good: Álvaro García and Santi Comesaña will go through the operating room. The end comes from Real Madrid Castilla after breaking the transfer with Real Valladolid. In Pucela he has only played 56 minutes in the League and 107 in the Cup. De Frutos was the protagonist in the rise of Majadahonda to second (2016-2018) and competed with Castilla, a team in which he scored seven goals in the past year.With his arrival, Paco can finally fill in that area of ​​the orphan Baby camp, down from last October 26, and will cover a position that Álvaro has been occupying, which was also injured. To replace the absence of extremes, laterals have been relocated and Andres was employed in the band throughout this season. Before the market ends, the signing of Álvaro Aguado, another player of the Pucela and former partner of Piovaccari and Antón Martín in Córdoba, is also expected to start Abdoulaye Ba and Lass Bangoura. Paco Jémez’s request finds its first result. Jorge De Frutos, 22, is the first signing of the Rayo winter market and on Friday morning he has already trained with the group to be available in Saturday’s game against Ponferradina. However, everything will depend on the “processing of the record”, as stated by the press conference technician: “We are going to take it to see the group dynamics and to see how we work. Then, if the file can be processed, it will give us a few minutes. It arrives in good physical condition, ”he added.last_img read more

Emerson, the signing that nobody talks about at Barcelona

first_imgBut the bottom of the matter goes beyond those three million euros and has to do with the progression of the player, who in just one year has given reason to those enthusiasts who compared him to Maicon, the winger who made fame in the Inter. Emerson has played 24 official matches this season in which he has scored three goals, has given five assists and has attracted the attention of Barça coaches for his power. In his favor, in addition, is the fact of knowing Setién, although the Cantabrian coach did not give him too much court in the middle year at Betis. Mind you, Emerson had just arrived. Emerson’s progression has also slowed Nelson Semedo’s contract renewal. After his summer haul, when Jorge Mendes wanted to take him to Atlético de Madrid, the Portuguese kept the promise of a contract extension that was a priority in the month of October, but was parked. At this time, it does not seem clear that the renewal of Semedo is completed. What’s more, it has been delayed because the final stretch of the season will decide many things in Barça’s future. That would facilitate the green light for the signing of the Brazilian, whose performance in the final months of the competition will determine Barça’s final decision. It is the signing that nobody talks about, but perhaps one of the ones with the most options. Andre Cury, executive of the Barça technical secretariat for South America, should look pleased. Emerson Aparecido (14-01-1999), a signing that was regarded with all the suspicions of the world when his transfer from Atlético Mineiro to Barça with a stop at Betis was announced, has experienced such an impressive progression that the Barça club is very seriously considered its incorporation for the next season.Certain obscurantism surrounds the hypothetical incorporation of the right side from June 30. Barça announced on January 31, 2019 the signing of Emerson (five seasons, until June 2024) at a cost of 12 million euros and reported its incorporation since July. But Emerson immediately ended up at Betis, who agreed with Barça to have the player two and a half seasons in their ranks. Betis paid six million of the twelve in the operation. To recover Emerson in July this year, Barça will have to pay nine million. The six of 50 percent and three more of surplus value. This was reported by Mundo Deportivo on January 3. Betis ensures that the player’s contract is until 2021 and that it will not come out sooner, while other sources guarantee that the operation would be closed with a twelve million gentlemen’s agreement, three more than what was established.last_img read more

Hughes, Nandlall call for establishment of industrial court

first_img…in light of public servants wage standoffThe establishment of an industrial court to hear matters on workers’ grievances and other labour issues is necessary, Attorney Nigel Hughes told Guyana Times in a recent interview.Similar views were expressed by Member of Parliament and former Attorney General Anil Nandlall, who also made the call during an interview with this newspaper.Attorney Nigel HughesFormer Attorney General Anil NandlallBoth Attorneys pointed out that there were many cases of ongoing grievances and work-related issues plaguing employees, who sometimes received no justice. The most recent is the deadlock between the Government and the Guyana Public Servants Union (GPSU), who had proposed a “living wage” for workers.Hughes stated that it would be good to have the specialised court established because cases would be dealt with in a timely manner with little to no backlog. However, he proposed that before the court was built, the Administration needed to bring the existing judicial institutions up to an acceptable level, whereby there was no backlog of cases.Also, he said it was important for the Administration to consider if the country had the capacity to build another court.“Although adding another layer to the system is good, it might create more frustration for us,” he said.The People United and General Workers Union (PU&GWU) had circulated a letter to the media, requesting the coalition Government and the Opposition to move to Parliament to establish an Industrial Court, with the status of the High Court, to hear and determine disputes relating to employment and labour relations.The Union stated that it was pushing the parties for consent since both of them, in power and on the campaign trail, as well as at Labour Day rallies and marches, promised the working class and their trade unions a good and strong labour sector.In the letter, the Union stated, “Due to the number of unsolved and unsettled cases, lack of enforcement of existing labour laws, failure of Guyana signing on to more international labour laws and International Labour Organisation (ILO) and International Maritime Organisation labour conventions/laws and lack of addressing ongoing grievances and general work-related issues affecting the working class, the People United and General Workers Union (PU&GWU) strongly believes that the way to address these matters and to establish a strong, effective and improved labour sector in Guyana, and also to address workers, their trade unions, and their general grievances in a timely manner, thus the Government of Guyana needs to urgently establish an Industrial Court.”Currently, labour matters are handled by the Social Protection Ministry’s Labour Department and, in some cases, these matters would be taken to the High Court – under the previous Administration, there was a dedicated Labour Ministry.Nandlall stated that an Industrial Court would prevent this from occurring, since in some cases, employees would not have the money to hire a lawyer to represent them. He said that an established court would have specialised lawyers and judges to deliver a better quality of justice in a faster manner.“The concept of a specialised court to deal with these matters is a good one,” he opined, recalling that under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration, specialised courts were established to deal with particular issues which would have otherwise fallen into the hands of the High Court or the Magistrates’ Courts.He stated that the formation of such an institution would have its advantages, particularly in the hearing of cases immediately rather than having to join the “long backlog of unrelated cases”.However, he indicated that the establishment of an Industrial Court would be dependent on whether there were a significant number of disputes to engage a tribunal.Presently, the Government and the GPSU are at a standstill on salary increase negotiations. While Government maintains that it will not budge from its 10 per cent offer, the GPSU has been holding out and has even suggested that the two parties meet again for more talks. President David Granger has, however, said that there was nothing more that could be offered at this time.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE PREVENTING YOU FROM LOSING WEIGHT?

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: I’m going to ask you a question….This might seem odd to you. You might even disagree with me, but what I’m about to ask you could be the biggest reason why you are not sticking to the goals that you set out for yourself at the start of the year.Is your social circle preventing you from losing weight? Whenever you begin to take control of your health and initially start your journey into weight loss, people will be happy for you. You will receive a lot of encouragement and this will help spur you on.But….after a while, you will begin to notice some small changes in how some of your friends, family and work colleagues act around you.This will be subtle to begin with.Actually it will be like the scene in ‘Jaws’… the person is swimming in the ocean, blissfully unaware that anything strange is happening. Then the music starts…Duh, Duh….Duh, Duh. Then all of a sudden, SNAP! This is pretty much how it goes when you start. It could be some small remarks, maybe regarding how you are eating, or maybe you declined the usual Friday night ‘after work’ drinks.Then, you begin to lose weight, or maybe you drop a dress size. All of a sudden the water gets a bit choppier.The small indirect comments will become direct ones. There will be questions; lots of confusing, conflicting questions and some of the stories will be so absurd, they have to be true, don’t they?Questions like:* ‘Why do you want to lose weight’? * ‘I don’t know how you can eat like that’* ‘You can’t miss another night out’?The stories that you will hear will go something like this:* ‘2 litres!, I know this one person who drank that much water and they died!’ * ‘When you stop training all your muscle will turn to fat, you should just stop now!’* ‘You are just depriving yourself. Give in now and it will save you all the heartache later on. You know you will give up anyways.’This is the undercurrent that will eventually drag you down into the murky depths of despair.The real question is why would your family and friends do this? Why would they try and prevent you from achieving your goals?The answer is simple. They cannot help it.Change makes people uncomfortable, really uncomfortable. When you start to lose weight all of their insecurities about themselves are being highlighted. The more you succeed, the more they realise their own failings and hence the more they want you to fail. But don’t be angry. They probably don’t even realise that they are doing it.Now, I am not saying that everyone will do this, but I’m sure that everyone reading this has at one time or another been subject to this sort of behaviour.So, what do you do?Invite your friends and work colleagues to join you. If you can create a social circle that is actively involved in your goals, your ability to achieve them will be easier.Stay focused on your goals, there will always be temptation, there will always be an easy option, don’t take it.You can sink into the murky waters of negativity, or you can swim past the sharks and get to where you want to go.#TrainSmartFor further information on Personal Training and Nutrition you can contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Personal-Training-and-Performance/120518884715118* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Personal Training and PerformanceEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE PREVENTING YOU FROM LOSING WEIGHT? was last modified: February 2nd, 2014 by John2Share 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:emmet rushefitnesspersonal trainerweight loss advicelast_img read more

MILFORD WOMAN IS A HIT A GLASTONBURY MUSIC FESTIVAL

first_imgFor millions of TV fans all over the world and the 180,000 strong crowd, the Glastonbury Festival this year was all about Lionel Richie, Kanye West and The Who… or was it?Glastonbury’s Michael Eavis is joined onstage in the Piano Bar by Milford girl Aoife Dick and guests.For 23-year-old Aoife Dick from Milford her very special Glastonbury moment came in the wee small hours of the Saturday night.It was then that she joined Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis for a rare old late night session at the legendary Underground Piano Bar. This is a secret location in the Festival’s network of sites out among Worthy Farm’s rolling hillside site of one thousand acres. Aoife is now a trusted member of staff for the Glastonbury festival and she told us that it is the experience of a lifetime to work and be part of the show.A glass or two of Poitin was enjoyed as Aoife joined the legendary dairy farmer, Michael Eavis in a number of songs that included his very own version of ‘Goodnight Irene’.Michael also sang with the Moody Blues during their storming set at the Acoustic Stage.There was not a dry eye in the house as the set in the Piano Bar ended to widespread acclaim and a leading member of the Glastonbury team has vowed to bring more Donegal performers to Somerset in future years.We understand that a well-known squeeze box artist living some distance from the Donegal shoreline could soon be on the guest list in the Piano Bar. In the meantime staff at the Eavis Farm are still basking in the singing of Michael and Aoife: obviously both were too bashful to give away the exact details of their choice of songs.This week we’ve been hearing about the logistics of putting on such a spectacle from our own fans at the Eavis Farm.The legendary event now has 103 stages across 1,000 acres and there are 1200 performances.Today Aoife Dick is a key member of staff at the festival site office on the Eaves Farm in Somerset and now she’s part of the legend that is the Piano Bar.It is here hidden away among the rolling hillsides that some of the great Glastonbury musical moments happen with Aoife and her Boss leading the sing-song as the audience rock and roll to the best sounds onsite on the Saturday night.There are over 40,000 workers involved during the festival in making it all happen and to ensure that every last punter gets real value for money. And fans keep returning, year after year from the four corners of the earth to sample what has got to some so unique that there never can be something quite like the Glastonbury Experience.And there is the Piano Bar: It is the stuff of Glastonbury legend – a hidden underground bar that does not appear on any maps or official guides, where a number of lucky fans, either by luck or error find themselves on a musical journey that could embrace music from Ireland’s chequered history to Brazil, Mexico or Peru.Glastonbury is one of the world’s most eclectic festivals and it goes from strength to strength down on the farm in Somerset where the 380 strong Holstein herd of purebreds continue to produce milk and the process the Eaves farm has won this year’s national dairy award for milk production.And Aoife’s boss confessed to the Tribune that among the guests in the piano bar this year was her dad. Gerry Dick is a well-known vet in Milford and being out on a farm is his forte.MILFORD WOMAN IS A HIT A GLASTONBURY MUSIC FESTIVAL was last modified: July 9th, 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:AOIFE DICKdonegalGLASTONBURY MUSIC FESTIVALMilfordlast_img read more

first_imgFINN HARPS came within five minutes of knocking Premier side Drogheda United out of the FAI Cup in a gripping clash in Ballybofey tonight.The Donegal side had to play the last half an hour with ten men and eventually cracked under the Utd pressure.Seven yellow cards, a 58th minute red card for Ciaran Coll and two goals lit up Finn Park in this cracking FAI Cup Cup quarter-final.

It was almost a party atmosphere at half-time.Harps came out for the second period and competed for every ball as feet flew and tempers flared, and the ref got card-happy.But Michael Daly popped up five minutes from time to grab the equaliser – and force a replay in Drogheda next Monday.Peter Hutton’s men came oh so close.And they can go home tonight feeling that a battle drawn was a moral victory for the First Division outfit.

SAVAGE DOGS SHOT TO DEATH AFTER HORRIFIC SHEEP KILL

first_imgThis is the sickening scene after two savage German Shepherd dogs attacked a flock of sheep.The bloody attack happened in broad daylight outside the West Donegal village of Annagry.It is believed the dogs were straying in the area for some time before they set upon the sheep which were grazing in a local field. Three of the sheep were mauled to death as others fled the attack which happened around midday yesterday.A passing motorist witnessed the attack on the main Annagry to Crolly road and immediately contacted locals who contacted the owner of the sheep.They rushed to the scene and another local man managed to shoot the out-of-control dogs with a legally-held firearm.Gardai were alerted and arrived at the scene and began enquiries to locate the owners of the dogs. Donegaldaily understands that Gardai have identified and spoken to owners and the matter is still under investigation.German Shepherd’s are one of ten breeds classified as a restricted dog breed in Ireland under the Control of Dogs Regulations 1998 that states they need strict control.The act states that this breed of dog can’t be in a public place unless securely muzzled and led by a strong chain or leash not exceeding two metres and by a person over sixteen who is capable of controlling the dog.PICTURES BY KIND PERMISSION OF EOIN MCGARVEYEnds SAVAGE DOGS SHOT TO DEATH AFTER HORRIFIC SHEEP KILL was last modified: June 12th, 2011 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:Annagryattackdogs shotsheeplast_img read more

Women’s Soccer Battles Wisconsin To 0-0 Draw

first_img MADISON, Wis. – The Drake University women’s soccer team held the Wisconsin Badgers scoreless for a 0-0 draw that was played on a warm and sunny Sunday, Aug. 28 afternoon at the McClimon Complex in Madison, Wis. The Badgers outshot the Bulldogs, 24-4, and in corner kicks with 15 to just one. However, Drake’s defense and junior goalie Haley Morris (Clive, Iowa) were outstanding in the match. Morris recorded five saves while the Bulldogs’ back line limited the Badgers to just six shots on goal. Full Schedule Roster Live Stats Next Game: “This game tested our grit,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “We defended for stretches of the game against a good Wisconsin team with a very special playmaker. Our team defense was solid and our back line was superb. We had a few half chances but to be fair we worked hard to get numbers behind the ball.”  Drake (2-0-1) and Wisconsin (1-1-2), the defending 2015 Missouri Valley Conference and Big Ten Conference regular season champions, respectively, battled for 110 minutes over two halves and two overtimes. Drake’s best scoring opportunity Sunday came midway through the first half when senior Rebecca Rodgers (Peotone, Ill.) got behind Wisconsin’s back line but Badger goalie Caitlyn Clem smothered the ball before Rodgers could fire a shot. Preview South Dakota 9/2/2016 – 7 PM HTML Box Score Drake was coming off a 4-0 win at UIC Friday night while Wisconsin played Milwaukee to 1-1 draw Thursday night in Madison. “Our team is in a good place right now in terms of developing over the course of preseason,” said Horner. “With school starting Monday and playing at home next weekend we will face new challenges and distractions that we didn’t while we were in a bit of a vacuum during preseason. I look forward to maintaining a high level of focus in preparation for our first home game.” “Winning the game in the first half was huge for us on Friday night,” Horner said. “We need to recognize the importance of putting our chances away early and how that positively impacted our energy level today in a warm overtime game.” Story Links PDF Box Score The Bulldogs open their home slate at Cownie Soccer Complex on Sept. 2 against South Dakota. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
