Molina: “Kepa has the weapons to recover the position”

first_imgThe sports director of the Federation (RFEF), José Francisco Molina, did not want to get into trouble about the possible, or not so much, call of Kepa for the list of the Selection that Luis Enrique will communicate the next day 20. “I can send my support from here, but the one who decides on the National Team list is Luis Enrique. Losing title is not the best news for a goalkeeper, but there are still three months left for the Euro,” he said. Molina, who went to the draw of the League of Nations in substitution of Luis Enrique, who could not travel to Holland for a shingles.Kepa has lost ownership in his team, the Chelsea, in which he has been a substitute for Willy Caballero, 38, for a month. Lampard, his coach, does not seem willing to change his mind, and that has generated the problem in the National Team. Kepa Arrizabalaga pointed to holder for the European Championship, and now with his substitution an opportunity opens again for De Gea, which is also being questioned on his team, the Manchester United On the possibility that both recover the lost confidence if they are summoned for the National Team, Molina said that “that does not depend on me, but on Luis Enrique.” “I can only say that they are two great goalkeepers and that there are still three months left for the European Championship, and one hundred days are an eternity in football. There is time for things to change.” The sports director of the Spanish Federation, José Francisco Molina, he valued the Nations League draw: “We are going to face high-level teams. We have even avoided coconuts according to what the winners say, although Switzerland and Ukraine are powerful. They have made a great qualification for the European Championship. They will be six interesting matches.”Molina assured about the friendlies that La Roja will play in March: “They are going to be a preview of the European Championship. Luis Enrique is looking forward to the competition. We are preparing things for the tournament.”The Valencian also spoke about the coronavirus and the friendly against Germany: “I can’t tell much about this, but the Federation is in contact with UEFA, FIFA and the Spanish Government. Together, the decision will be made, thinking about the citizens. Hopefully nothing should be suspended.”last_img read more

EU, Liberia CBRN National Action Plan Validates New Findings Today

first_imgA cross section of participants and trainers at the CBRN new National Action Plan W/shop in Monrovia.Suggests possible ways to mitigate challenges The European Union (EU) in collaboration with a host of Liberian stakeholders will on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, conclude a three-day action plan validation on chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN), as well as explosives dangerous to environment and people.The workshop, which began on Monday, April 8, 2019, at a resort in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, is expected to come to an end with emphasis placed on risk mitigation.Professor Martin Scott-Tabi, Desk Officer at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for European Affairs,  said this year’s CBRN exercise brings to an end last year’s strategic action plan for the implementation of ideas to mitigate risks posed by the use, and disposal of chemicals that tend to threaten the environment.Mr. Martin Scott-Tabi, principal deputy for European Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign AffairsTabi said as last year’s action plan comes to an end, a new action plan validating specific findings to prepare government ministries and agencies, as well as the private sector to fight against the lack of controlled CBRN, is in the offing.“Yesterday marked the end of an era in the CBRN risk mitigation exercises, which began in 2013, and marked the beginning of a new project, which is the validation of needs assessed on the first workshop of the national action plan,” he said.Tabi said the a group of focal persons at the event will draft a national action plan to make Liberia’s input from line ministries and agencies on the gaps identified so that European Union will tailor specific training, and its co-sponsors and founders to support the country to have a concise CBRN society where chemicals locations are known by their quantities in line with best international practices.He said the primary benefit for ordinary people is that those who receive EU sponsored training will understand the need to be careful with chemicals and other biological and radiological materials.“Liberia may not have that much risk of CBRN, but it is a transit zone for those chemicals, mainly with ships coming in and anchoring at the country’s ports,” Tabi said.According to him, said it is great challenge that Liberians do not have education in the country on nuclear risk, therefore, the need for first aid connected to nuclear items, in case there is explosion, cannot be over-emphasized.Juan Antonio Frutos Goldaratz, EU head of political affairs, press and information section of the delegation to Liberia, said the CBRN Action Plan is supported by the EU initiative to reduce risks related to the CBRN materials through the eight centers of excellence, which bring together 61 countries.“The objective of this initiative launched in 2010, is to support partner countries to develop and strengthen national capacities, internal coordination, and regional and international cooperation to address their challenges and reduce their risks related to CBRN materials,” Goldaratz said.He added that the initiative seeks to help partner countries prevent, be prepared and respond to CBRN-related incidents, of criminal, accidental or natural origin.He said the EU is encouraging and supporting Liberia and other countries to develop their national action plans, and strengthen their capacities to reduce risks related to CBRN materials.The participants were drawn from the Liberia National Police (LNP), soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), and representatives from the Ministry of Health (MoH).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cabinet subcommittee to make recommendations – Bulkan

first_imgParking meter controversy…expresses support for project once fees are not excessiveA Cabinet sub-committee that will look into, and make recommendations on, the implementation of parking meters has been formed, comprising of members from across several ministries.This was explained by Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan. While he shied away from providing a deadline for the subcommittee to complete its work, he noted that its first meeting was held on Thursday.“Following the renegotiated contract that has been entered into, the Council made a presentation to Cabinet and Cabinet has mandated the formation of a subcommittee that comprises several Ministries.”According to Bulkan, these will include the Ministries of Public Infrastructure, Business and Legal Affairs. In addition, the subcommittee would be chaired by theThe parking meters have touched off popular opposition since it was first proposedCommunities Ministry.“The initial meeting of that subcommittee was held yesterday [Thursday]. It’s a work in progress. It is to take into account the concerns that have been expressed by the Central Government previously, as well as those of the citizens and to make recommendations to the Cabinet.”Bulkan also reiterated his support for parking meters on the condition that the fees are not onerous. According to the Minister, if implemented correctly, the parking meters have the potential to bring back order to the city streets.“I’ve always said there are many positive aspects of instituting paid parking in our city. It will help restore order to our chaotic conditions in our city streets and regulate the flow and management of traffic. And once the rates are not onerous or excessive, the benefits outweigh what motorists will have to pay,” Bulkan explained.‘Green machines’Following re-negotiation, SCS and the M&CC reached a new agreement under the controversial parking meter project, which will now see persons paying $150 per hour and $800 for eight hours of parking in the city.Meanwhile, residents of the city would be issued with a restricted residential pass for free parking from 19:00h-07:00h (7pm-7am) Monday to Friday, while parking will be free on Saturdays.Under the modified contract, both parties have agreed to have an oversight committee set up to monitor, review, and manage the operation of the project.The committee is expected to have three representatives from City Hall, three from Smart City Solutions, and one third party with the Terms of Reference for the committee expected to be agreed upon at a later date.The committee’s report noted that during the renegotiations, the subject of share profit and contractual obligations were discussed and it was agreed to have it remain the same being the 20/80 M&CC-SCS for a period of 20 years. It was also disclosed that in the event of arbitration, the proceedings would be held in Miami, despite the jurisdiction being Guyana. Despite the new proposals, the Georgetown Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc (GCCI) and the Movement Against Parking Meters (MAPM) have already rejected the project’s return.From the onset, MAPM and the business community have been opposed to the installation of parking metres in the city. The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has also maintained its non-support for this initiative. (Jarryl Bryan)last_img read more

Finn Valley travelled with a mixture of athletes to engage to get a race under their belt and be in a position to ascertain current form in view of upcoming challenges . The outcome reasonably positive as the mens team finished a close 2nd to Raheny and a number of master athletes put themselves in the frame for selection . That senior team had Gerard Gallagher 27th 2.15 seconds down on race winner Brendan O Neill from Dublin ,Barry Harron a very positive 30th some 4 secs back ,Mark Hoy 33rd 6 secs adrift of that just 10 secs seperating these lads who had Dermot Brennan 43rd closing in the team . The women 5k had the ever reliable Catriona Devine 21st,and as was the case with Catherine Dooher an exemplary positive squad member ,and Donna Evans each finished 4th in their age group category putting them in the frame for selection consideration . In the mens event Kieran Carlin 3rd in his category surely guaranteed selection with an anticipated solid performance and back again to Barry Harron to note that he is a master athlete and his was a noteworthy run . Teresa Doherty was 5th lady across the line the winner being twice european cross country champion Finn Britton and no doubt will have benefitted immensely from ther outing . Full marks to all who travelled as obviously this was where the challenge was over the weekend and access now and train to improve has to be the message as the local focus will be on defending both Donegal senior titles on Nov 2nd 12 noon at FVAC . Elsewhere Adam Speer had an encouraging run in the New Mills 10k on Saturday finishing 4th .This weekend is dedicated to underage Ulster champs at UUJ Saturday bus leaving Finn Valley 8 am via Letterkenny Bridgend while quite a number of adult athletes are all set for the Dublin marathon having logged miles and miles for many weeks .Finally pleased to report that Sarah Collins has been nominated for an award at the annual AAI awards in a few weeks in Dublin Sarah currently out of action with a knee injury which is showing slight improvement is back at her U S training base in Providence . Pauric Mc Laughlin was 2nd scorer for his U S University in a pre conference race despite taking a fall so hes surely will come away from that upbeat .In a Donegal Schools cross country meet on Friday strong performances from Laura Crossan,Loreto;Ben Carr ,Mulroy;AAron Mc Glynn ,GS Uladh;Karen Gallagher continuing to show excellent racing form representing Mulroy;and Bryan Mc Namee just some of the prominent front runners .
