“We have to be aware of what we play”

first_imgCurro Torres face a vital match for the Lugo how is this weekend before the Oviedo with the conviction that his people have taken a step forward. In addition, the change of oviedista coach does not worry him, stating that “A change of coach is always a different stimulus and a renewed illusion, but what we do is more important to me. This is a week to demonstrate “he stressed. Even so, he also stressed that “You are not going to see a very changed Lugo in terms of concepts”, and stressed that “sure it will be a very competitive game, where we play a lot.” Nor did Curro Torres give greater importance to Oviedo being a team that receives, like the Lugo, goals with ease, pointing out that “I do not give importance to these statistics, they are here to break them”. What he wanted to insist on is that “we play at home and that has to be noticed, we have to get strong here and take a step forward in that regard.” Precisely on the subject of the hobby wanted to stand Curro Torres, stressing that “we must realize that we have a hobby that is very good, they made a very big effort to support us in Fuenlabrada and also here before the Elche, therefore before Oviedo I know we are going to have them “. He also praised the performance of the latest signings, stating that “Now I have the blessed problem that I can count on almost everyone and that makes my choice difficult, but it is fortunate”. In addition, I point out that “I am very happy with the adaptation of the team in Fuenlabrada“, recognizing that “the match we did was not good, you can’t deny, but we were able to compete despite it and win “.Finally, the coach albivermello alerted that, despite the last victory, the match against Oviedo is transcendental, asserting that “a victory cannot cloud realityWe all have to be aware of the difficulty of the game. They know it, they have a lot of social mass and they are going to come to win, but we are small but we really want and we are going for everything, “he said.last_img read more

Clubs prefer lower wages over ERTE

first_imgHowever, this movement by the employers, which seemed to lead to a constant shower of requests from ERTE, had no impact yesterday. Moreover, as AS has learned, many clubs have communicated by email to their workers that they are not going to undertake any ERTE for now. Las Palmas already retracted last week, Leganés has already stated that it does not enter their plans, as well as other Second Clubs such as Numancia and Fuenlabrada. Thebes’ words last Friday in a telematic meeting, in which he asked for caution, have had effect although there are clubs that are evaluating taking the step and consulting their situation with the labor authority. Even so, in general, the idea of ​​the clubs is that it is better to agree on a collective drop in wages, with a greater impact on the professional staff, as Barça wants to do, before starting to open temporary employment regulatory files where 70% would be paid by Social Security and the remaining 30% by the club.The ERTE, in addition, have peculiarities that could complicate things in the future for the clubs if they are accepted. One of them is indicated in Additional Provision VI of the Decree of the State of Alarm and points out that, in order to safeguard employment, aid will be granted to companies that comply with regulations such as re-hiring those fired for at least six months when normality returns. The ERTE, according to the experts, are going to arrive in a cascade in 2nd B (already they go Castellón, Linense, Sanluqueño, Cartagena …). Not even in Third, where there are not so many contracts. Javier Tebas had one of his most conciliatory days until Infantino spoke yesterday. First thing in the morning, it agreed with the Federation to issue a joint statement in which, as expected, both institutions reported the suspension of all competitions sine die due to the coronavirus crisis: “The Monitoring Commission provided for in the current Coordination Agreement agrees the suspension until the competent authorities consider that they can be resumed and this does not pose any risk to health.” Shortly after, after holding a Delegate Commission with six First-tier clubs (Real Madrid, Seville, Betis, Valencia, Villarreal and Levante) and six Second-tier clubs (Deportivo, Cádiz, Las Palmas, Alcorcón, Almería and Lugo), LaLiga sided with professional clubs when taking emergency measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.This was his second statement: “LaLiga wants to express its full support for the clubs in view of the serious situation they are facing on the occasion of COVID-19. Each club is making the decisions it deems necessary according to its circumstances to face the serious consequences that follow. In this sense, LaLiga will support, advise and help coordinate those ERTE requests due to force majeure that the clubs consider appropriate to present to the labor authority due to the considerable decrease in their activity (without parties, without visits to stores, etc.) ”.last_img read more

first_imgRuth B. Kubay, a widow believed to be in her 50s, is calling on humanitarian organizations and philanthropists to rescue her 13-year old son, David Kpana, from his ailment. He is suffering from a very serious condition of enlarged scrotom.David is the second among three children of Ruth,  whose husband died last year.  This widow fries doughnuts to sell in order to keep the half family going through life.It is not an easy thing for a woman without a husband in the home to go through this struggle, and not many men will be willing to cater for children who are not theirs.Such is the situation with Ruth as she now goes around friends and relatives to ask for daily needs in addition to the doughnuts she fries to sell and get income from to help her children.Ruth, who yesterday walked into the Daily Observer office at McDonald Street, told our reporter the problem started on David last year November.

SBVC thrives under adverse conditions

first_imgAdversity is nothing new for the San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team. It’s been a common thread throughout the season and it hasn’t changed during the playoffs. The No. 3 seeded Wolverines (27-6) will host No. 6 seed Saddleback (24-8) in the Southern California Regional playoffs at 7 p.m. Saturday. The winner advances to the state tournament that starts Thursday at Selland Arena in Fresno. The Wolverines are looking for their third straight trip, although they have an entirely different cast and are under an interim coach. Sophomore forward Devon Davis (ankle), one of the two holdovers, was injured late in Saturday’s 69-62 win over Citrus. Sophomore guard Jamal Vandy (shoulder), the team’s top defender, is playing but not at full speed. They also missed some practice time this week with interim coach Gerry Wright, who was out of town after the death of his father last week. Wright left Sunday and returned Wednesday for practice, but had no assistant to coach the team in his absence. But players insist they’re ready to go. “We’re going to be doing the same things we have been doing all season,” freshman forward Johnny Barnes said. “We just have to go out and take care of business. We know what we have to do.” If Davis can’t go, Wright said Miller graduate Jeffrey Sawyer would start in his place. That would represent a considerable dropoff in size with Davis SBVC’s tallest player at 6-foot-7 and Sawyer the more traditional 6-3 guard. Joining him in the starting lineup are Barnes (15.3 ppg, 9.1 rpg), guards Lance Hurdle (14.9 ppg, 2.9 apg), Darrian McKinstry (15 ppg, 4.8 apg, 2.9 spg) and Lewis Leonard (12.1 ppg). Hurdle will be the sixth player from SBVC in three years to move on to Division I school, having commited to the University of Miami earlier this week. center_img The Gauchos, who opened the playoffs with a 60-42 win over Los Angeles City, have some ties to the Inland Empire too. Sophomore point guard Lamont Morgan is out of Diamond Ranch and Derek Richie (5 ppg, 2.2 apg), also a sophomore guard, is a product of Silverado. Morgan, who signed early with Brigham Young, is also good friends with Hurdle. “I can’t wait to play against (Morgan),” Hurdle said. “He is a great player and they’re a great team.” Morgan (6.8 ppg, 3.5 apg) is one of three Division I prospects on the squad with 6-9 forward Tremaine Ford (15.1 ppg, 10 rpg) headed to Cal State Northridge and 6-7 forward Gerard Anderson (13.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg) going to Cal State Fullerton. The teams have not played but did see each other at the tournament in Riverside in December. “They’re athletic just like we are and they are a lot bigger,” Wright said. “We have to keep the game moving. If we get in a half-court game with them it’s over.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

South Bay health care fares well

first_imgTorrance Hospital Independent Practice Association, HealthCare Partners Independent Practice Association and HealthCare Partners Medical Group all earned three stars – meaning “good” – in the categories of medical care and patient satisfaction. Lynda Carre, spokeswoman for Torrance-based HealthCare Partners Medical Group, said the report is an important tool for patients. “We take this very seriously,” she said. “It’s a way to demystify the health-care system for patients who have a greater ability now to make their own decisions about health coverage.” This is the seventh year the state has issued grades to HMOs and medical groups. The grading system did not include independent hospitals such as Torrance Memorial Medical Center or Little Company of Mary, or county hospitals such as County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Grades were given to nine HMOs that serve about 95 percent of patients who have this type of coverage in California: Aetna Health of California Inc.; Blue Cross HMO-CaliforniaCare; Blue Shield of California HMO; CIGNA HMO; Health Net of California Inc.; Kaiser Permanente-Northern California; Kaiser Permanente-Southern California; PacifiCare of California; and Western Health Advantage. Most of the HMOs received two or three stars in both categories; Aetna received one star in patient satisfaction. The health organizations were also graded on care for specific ailments such as asthma, cancer, heart care and sexually transmitted diseases. Patient advocates said there were some troubling findings in these areas. “There are certainly some areas where patients need to demand better,” Sandra Perez, director of the Office of the Patient Advocate, said during a morning news conference in Sacramento. One in every three HMO members rates his or her plan unfavorably, according to the report, and one-third were dissatisfied with their patient “experience,” such as ease in scheduling appointments. Only half of HMO patients with mental health problems received care that met national standards, according to the report. Blue Cross of California and CIGNA HMO received high marks for maternity care; Kaiser North and South were rated “excellent” for heart care; Health Net of California earned the highest marks for cancer screening; and Blue Shield received the best score for patient satisfaction. Mark Moser, chief operating officer of Torrance Hospital Independent Practice Association, said the group doesn’t have a lot of control over patient satisfaction. Patients deal only with doctors they contract with, not with the administrators, he said. People who receive insurance through their jobs also often don’t have a choice as to what HMO they will use. The grading system gives them power, though, in choosing medical groups, Perez said, just as they have power in demanding quality when buying homes and cars. Rancho Palos Verdes resident Marty Dodell, a volunteer who helps coordinate health education events for seniors, said he usually bases his provider decisions on the advice of professionals, not state reports. “You read stuff like this almost on a daily basis,” he said, referring to the grading report. “It’s hard to know which one to trust.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Southern California Permanente Medical Group-South Bay, which serves about 190,000 patients, earned the highest marks of any local medical group.

‘A shrewd investment!’ Why Guardiola could make £18m man his first signing

first_img Wolfsburg star Ricardo Rodriguez 1 Football stats experts take a look at a young talent linked with a host of Premier League teams. For more City stats, check out news that Ricardo Rodriguez could be available for £18million this summer rippled across the internet, David Alaba’s impending contract extension at Bayern Munich suddenly didn’t seem such a blow to Pep Guardiola’s plans at Manchester City next season, as explains.The narrative suggests Guardiola will spend the final few months of his time at Bayern convincing as many of his players to follow him from Munich to Manchester, but the reality of it is, while wholesale changes are expected at the Etihad, not many new faces will actually end up coming from the Bavarian giants.Since it was announced Guardiola would replace Manuel Pellegrini, City’s performances have plummeted and it’s becoming harder with each passing game to conjure up names of players that are guaranteed a future at City when the Guardiola circus comes to town. It does, however, seem irrational to think replacing Joe Hart, for example, ranks high on his summer priorities, if at all. Hart may not be the all-action goalkeeper his soon-to-be boss currently has at the Allianz Arena, but there are areas in team of far greater concern for the Spaniard; namely in defence.The heart of the back four will certainly come under review, especially as news flashed that Vincent Kompany had broken down with yet another calf problem on Tuesday night, but Guardiola is also expected to push for a new left-back. Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov are both useful in their own right, but neither offers any substantial case to suggest they can prove sufficient to the Spaniard’s extremely high demands. And that is what brings us back to Rodriguez.The 23-year-old has a release clause in his current deal that will become active if Wolfsburg fails to qualify for the Champions League next season. Four teams and five points currently separate Dieter Hecking’s side from the top four and with their focus now primarily on success in the current Champions League campaign, it seems unlikely they will return to UEFA’s premiere tournament unless they defy the odds to win the competition this time around.Arjen Robben recently promoted Alaba as the best left-back in the world and Rodriguez isn’t far behind him. Crucially, however, Guardiola is rumoured to a fan. City can expect some competition in the form of Real Madrid and Manchester United, who are regularly linked with the Switzerland international, but it shouldn’t deter them from making a move for a player who would not only maintain Kolarov’s dynamic threat going forward, but also preserve some of the defensive qualities Clichy offers.As Rodriguez’s career has unfolded in Germany, he has become renowned for his breathtaking ability from dead ball situations and threat from wide areas, as Manchester United discovered in the group stages of the Champions League. In fact since August 2013, only one defender has delivered more accurate crosses in the Bundesliga than Rodriguez (60), accentuating his statistically calculated strength of ‘crossing’.Not only that, but he has registered at least six more assists than any other defender (15) in the German top-flight and only Paul Verhaegh (15) has scored more goals than the Swiss left-back (13) since the start of the 2013/14 campaign. When you consider no defender in Europe’s top five leagues has completed more dribbles than Rodriguez (141) – 91 more than Kolarov (50) and 95 more than Clichy (46) – in that time, it isn’t surprising that Rodriguez is getting in the positions to threaten the opposition with such regularity, furthering his statistically calculated strength of ‘dribbling’.For all of the praise Kolarov receives for his attacking endeavours, he has only managed 12 assists and five goals in the same period, and he has arguably been supplementing a better front line. Not only would Rodriguez be a significant upgrade on Kolarov’s ability going forward, but he would also install a defensive discipline were the Serbian is often found wanting.Rodriguez ranks in the top-five defenders for tackles and interceptions combined (340) over the past three Bundesliga campaigns and while his positioning can often leave him exposed, it would only improve under the tutelage of Guardiola.At £18million, Rodriguez could prove to be one of the shrewdest investments available to City this summer. Not only would the two-time Premier League champions be signing a defender that is capable at carrying out his duties at both ends of the pitch, but they’d also be picking up the highest-rated left-back across Europe’s top leagues from the past three seasons (7.73). Bayern aren’t the only German team with top-class players, as Rodriguez demonstrates.For more stats on Ricardo Rodriguez, click here to view his player pagelast_img read more


first_imgThe Build and Renovate Show which was hosted by the North West Renewable Energy Business Network, Ren Net, proved to be a great success last weekend at the Clanree Hotel.Sustainable energy industry experts, academics, and business people came together to host a two day trade show on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th February that gave almost 1,500 visitors the benefit of their collective knowledge at this free exhibition.The Ren Net project has been delivered through Cross Border partnership, led by the North West Region Cross Border Group (NWRCBG). The partnership works together to develop the North West Region and is comprised of Donegal County Council , Derry City Council, Limavady Borough Council, Magherafelt District Council, and Strabane District Council. Donegal County Council has been the Lead implementing Council for this particular project. The project is part funded by the European Union European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the INTERREG IVA Programme and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). The Ren Net project has gone from strength to strength over the past two years culminating in a show that provided passionate and knowledgeable information through seminars, speeches, and one to one advice at the many exhibition stands that covers all aspects of sustainable technology designed for the construction industry.The show started with a conference on Friday morning which was officially opened by Donegal Chief Executive, Seamus Neely, and Donegal County Council Cathaoirleach, John Campbell. Guest speakers at this event included Dr. John Doran, LYIT; Lis O’Brien, Limerick Institute of Technology; and John Flynn, SEAI, among others who were all warmly received by the sizeable audience. Project Officer, Joanne Holmes, talked about the success of Ren Net since its inception, providing supports to small businesses through various avenues of tailored mentoring, training and field trips to Britain and across Europe.After lunch, the Build and Renovate Show commenced and from the very outset it was apparent that there was considerable interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency in the North West.Almost 1,500 people visited the show over the two days. Many talks were delivered each day in the designated seminar area with great attendances at each. The supervised children’s play area also proved very popular with colouring, face-painting, balloons and complimentary goody bags being supplied to keep little minds busy while parents explored the vibrant surroundings.Exhibitors reported great interest in their products and services, with many follow-up calls arranged in the coming weeks, which will hopefully see continued growth in the sector of renewable energy and energy efficiency for ourselves, our children, and our children’s children.For anyone who may be interested in joining the Ren Net group, a meeting will be held on the 11th March at 6.30pm in the Clanree Hotel to explore how the group will proceed going forward.All are welcome as the Ren Net believes that everyone has a part to play in developing a greener, cleaner way of living and doing business. OVER 1500 ATTEND BRILLIANT REN-NET BUILD AND RENOVATE EVENT was last modified: March 4th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BusinessFeatureslast_img read more

3 slayings in four days baffle cops

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals “All three seem to have a different motive,” Detective Jim Freund said Wednesday. “None are gang-related, which is good.” Police have a solid lead in one of the cases – Arce’s death in the Bank of America parking lot. Police have identified the suspect as Juan Carlos Paredes, 52, a former security guard from the Pico-Union area of Los Angeles. Paredes, who also uses the last name Garcia, is 5-foot-8 and weighs 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, Freund said. He could be driving a 1984 white-and-red Ford Bronco with California license plate 4SDB488. Paredes and Arce got into a dispute either in the Bank of America at 8324 Van Nuys Blvd. or in the parking lot, Freund said. Police believe Paredes retrieved a semiautomatic handgun from his Ford Bronco and fired at least 13 shots at Arce, who was inside a silver Ford. At least six shots pierced the Ford’s windshield and hit Arce in the chest, according to police and witnesses. Police have fewer clues on the other two killings. Rojerio Rayas, 44, was killed Monday when a man approached him outside his Mission Hills home, asked for directions and shot him. Juan Borjas, 20, was gunned down by an unknown assailant three days earlier in the roadway in the 13000 block of MacNeil Street. Just hours before that, Alfredo Arce, 31, was killed in his car in a parking lot outside a Bank of America. Now, Mission Area homicide detectives are seeking the public’s help solving three unrelated homicides in four days. Rayas was shot about 5:45 p.m. Monday – just after he returned home from work – in the 14800 block of San Fernando Mission Boulevard. Police have few witnesses and no description of the killer. On the surface, the shooting appears to be random. “There may be more to it, but nothing we can put a finger on,” Freund said. “For someone to just ask directions and kill someone like that is unusual without any motive or anything. Obviously, we need to look at it a little deeper.” Borjas, of Canyon Country, was shot in the roadway of MacNeil Street in Sylmar at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Again, police have no witnesses and few leads. “Whenever you have three cases that are unrelated, it’s more difficult to solve,” Mission Area patrol Capt. John Incontro said. “You don’t have a pattern. It’s not like it’s a gang rivalry, going back and forth, and that gives you clues.” Still, authorities are pleased that none of the homicides appears to be gang-related. In late September and early October, three gang-related slayings in the Panorama City area indicated a war could be erupting between two local street gangs. Incontro said he believes the Los Angeles Police Department’s efforts to squelch the dangerous feud – including gang sweeps, more patrols and better communication with local residents – have been effective. “That means our enforcement and our liaison with folks down there is working pretty well,” he said. Anyone with information on any of the Mission Area homicides is asked to call the Mission Area community police station at (818) 838-9800.
