La Real exceeds 35,000 members

first_imgThe moment so exciting that the realistic team is going through, fighting for the Champions League and at the gates of being able to play their first Cup final in 32 years, has surely influenced this inflation of the number of members. This same Thursday the barrier of 35,000 members and partners in the realistic family has been overcome, placing the exact number at 35,004. This means that with this number of subscribers, 92.25% of the capacity of the new Real field is completed, According to the data that the realistic club forms, and without the visiting area, which cannot be sold among them members and must be available for the club that visits San Sebastián.The reality is that the climate that has been generated in the Reale Arena has also had its influence on the increase in subscribers. Because the atmosphere now in the Real’s house has nothing to do with the athletic tracks. The stands now roar, cheer, squeeze and, above all, enjoy the games. And then if Real helps with victories, everything goes better, of course. It is no coincidence that the percentage of victories at home of the Real has doubled in recent games compared to other seasons. Then there is another factor that cannot be ignored, the possibility that the Real can qualify for the final of the Copa del Rey, because the club in that case would draw a ticket for that final among its subscribers, and nobody wants to stay out of that raffle and the possibility of being able to travel to Seville on April 18. The data of members of the Real Sociedad begin to scare. A few years ago it was unthinkable that 30,000 members could be reached in a club like the San Sebastian. In fact, The number of 25,000 subscribers was seen as a success. But those times were left behind with the remodeling of the Anoeta stadium and the 40,000 seats that Reale Arena now has. Because the forecasts handled by the president of the Royal, Jokin Aoerribay, have even been exceeded. The area businessman always argued that the expansion of the stadium capacity would be accompanied by a considerable increase in the number of partners, taking into account the waiting list they were handling and that the worst visibility areas of the previous Anoeta were usually empty. The improvement of the experience of seeing the Real in the Reale Arena has been noticed, and the fans have responded as expected in the club. To the point of overcoming the barrier of 35,000 members, a surprising figure and with which the stadium would be filled before the reform. Moreover, there would be someone who would have to stay out, because it had capacity for 32,000 spectators.last_img read more

first_imgView comments There is also a prevalent quotient of anarchy in the slums. The poor are often less prone to rely on police and government to keep order in their communities. The sense of order results from a tight complex of social relationships entirely different from what we find in other communities, especially communities where residents have security of tenure over their properties. In a state of calamity, this sense of order is bound immediately to break down.The vulnerability of the poor to calamities may be seen in a city’s topography. It would be a complex history that explains why urban slums everywhere are usually found near the coastlines a bit away from a city’s downtown centers. It is possible these were fishing villages in earlier times. Slowly they were pressured away from the areas where the shipping ports grew. It is understandable why they would still try to occupy any available area near the ports and the coastlines. These offer opportunities for employment even if mostly informal. Fishing and the fish trade still exists to this day and so it is not surprising that the coastlines are occupied by people involved with this general occupation.FEATURED STORIESNEWSINFOSenate to probe Tolentino’s ‘novel legal theories’ on oral agreementsNEWSINFOLocsin wants to drop ‘visas upon arrival’ privilegeNEWSINFOPalace open to make Dengvaxia usable again as dengue cases spikeThe well-to-do on the other hand move away from often crowded urban coastlines. They move to gated subdivisions in the hills or to condominiums in the uptown areas, which are usually more peaceful and less crowded. Over time, a city’s geography begins to be defined by the social and economic distributions, the city’s topography. The advent of greater potential for calamities resulting from earthquakes and typhoons gives this topographical distribution a new reading. It is a distribution which defines also the potential for death, hunger and suffering resulting from natural calamities. But it is a fact that over time calamities also tell the story of how people adapt to the challenges nature sets for it. Japanese cities have always adapted to regular and seasonal storms and earthquakes. The Philippines will now have to do likewise or more will perish over time. This act of adaptation is long overdue.Think for instance: Why does Cebu still have its electrical wires raised on posts instead of buried underground, given how we are regularly visited by typhoons? If in the past the city-fathers thought underground electrical wiring is simply too expensive, perhaps now they might reconsider the emerging economics of that option given how we will have more and bigger typhoons from hereon.The act of strengthening or reconstructing slum communities near the coastlines is an option that should be studied as a complex phenomenon related to any plans to ease poverty over all. It is knee-jerk idiocy to think that this requires only a simple act of ejecting coastline slum dwellers from their homes since most of them are “squatters” anyway. The act of ejecting people this way never solves the problem. They just cause among the poor greater frustration, greater suffering and over time greater poverty. This is a complex issue requiring profound study. Whatever final decision is made over these poor, it is imperative they should be part of the decision making process. Otherwise, it may be said, we did them worse than the typhoon itself. Typhoon Yolanda showed to us just how badly led we are. We could have worse leaders than we have now, but it is equally true the country needs a better quality of leadership. There is a prevalent quotient of bad leadership of course. Nothing like a calamity to show us exactly how bad. Yet, all these result from corruption and how leaders are often elected using the very same corrupt structures that prevail, the way our leaders buy votes and political positions, which they use only to improve their economic stock.MORE STORIESnewsinfo‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa visits protesters blocking new Hawaii telescopenewsinfoCourt: Non-native Guam residents can vote on status with USnewsinfoAngkas says sorry for tweet likening service to sexMORE STORIESnewsinfo‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa visits protesters blocking new Hawaii telescopenewsinfoCourt: Non-native Guam residents can vote on status with USnewsinfoAngkas says sorry for tweet likening service to sexThe end of the pork barrel system is a step forward to improving the quality of the political life here, but it is not the end itself.

Nothing like a calamity to reveal the social weaknesses. Such as for instance, the logic of designing our cities so that the common good is best served. Such as for another instance, why we need to work some more to solve the problem of poverty here. Such as for still another instance, why we need better political leaders.All are interrelated. While it may be true that an earthquake or typhoon is blind to social and economic status, the truth is that the poor are always more vulnerable than others. There is of course a prevalent quotient of hunger among the poor even when there is no calamity. And yet when calamity does come, the poor are the first to suffer. They are less capable of preparing for a calamity by stocking on food and other necessities.ADVERTISEMENT An adobo upgrade: Add rosemary PBA: Rain or Shine overcomes San Miguel, McCullough’s 51 to avert sweeplast_img read more
