Imanol only has the Illarramendi casualty against Mirandés

first_imgFrom there, the only player who ended up bothering the game against Athletic was Mikel Oyarzabal, He received a very hard tackle from Iker Muniain. But the Eibarrés attacker was able to finish Sunday’s game and then has not had any sequels. It has a blow, but it will not be a problem to be ready for the Mirandes visit. In fact, he has trained normally, as expected. Imanol can also count on David Zurutuza, another player who had been touched for a while. Since last week he trains with the group and could enter the Cup list this week, or failing in the Gipuzkoan derby against Eibar de Ipurua. Two other players who dragged muscle problems are the central Le Normand and Aritz Elustondo, but both are in good condition and Imanol can also count on them in the big copera meeting on Thursday. Good news in Zubieta with the infirmary of the Royal Society. In the absence of a day for the great event of the season for the Txuri-Urdin, Imanol Alguacil only has the loss of his captain, Asier Illarramendi, who has already been injured for almost six months and that is in the final stretch to finally re-enter with the group. This means that the Real recovers the players who had reluctant in recent days.This is the case of Martin Ødegaard, whom Imanol Alguacil booked in the Basque derby against Athletic Bilbao last Sunday. The Norwegian is already at the same pace as his teammates, that break has been good for him, and the appointment against the Mirandes will not be missed. Another player who could not play the Reale Arena Basque football classic was the center Diego Llorente. The Madrid was injured against Mallorca and missed the last meetings. But He is already recovered, has completed the session normally and is available to the realistic coach.last_img read more

We must struggle against those who corrupt us

first_imgDear Editor,Ms. Gertrude Stein’s poem, Sacred Emily, published in 1922, captured an important thought as follows, “A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose”, which clearly outlines what is happening politically under President David Granger.Every act the PNC leadership takes exposes that leadership as nothing else but a cabal of convenience. And let us, in the interest of definition, outline who makes up this Granger cabal. They number less than 25 persons in the leadership of the PNC, and comprise of close friends and family members of the Granger family. The PNC rank and file members have no say in what is happening today, so we must not chastise them; they are suffering as much as the non-PNC supporters.This group that dominates the Granger cabal are the intellectual authors behind the misconception that their “daddies” left them a transport on political power. Being mainly descendants of the League of Coloured People (LCP), these people operate like if they are the new “Massa”; and, like the LCP and the teachings from their colonial “Massa”, use ethnic mobilization to prop up their political operations. But the historical facts clearly reveal that this is nothing but a manufactured position invented by the “REAL MASSA” in the 1960s, whose primary game plan was to divide the working class and rule the former colonies from a distance.The facts will reveal that political independence was earned, but economic dependence was preserved, because this small group, with their anti-working class actions, loyally delivered the assets of the people at pennies on the pound to the multi-nationals. Isn’t that what we are observing today under Mr. Granger on this oil contract?So once the bidding of the international economic hitmen are met, the devouring of the AFC and now the deflowering of the WPA will not even be noticed come 2020. As the General Secretary of the PNC, Ms. Amna Ally, said: this is a “little thing”.This act against Dr. David Hinds was planned from the day he wrote his very first critical column way back in 2015. This is how Mr. Granger rolls: slowly, but patiently, like a well-camouflaged political python. When the time was right, the strike was decisive and swift. This was also how Hitler moved in the 1930s: total loyalty was demanded at all times.Now is the time for the swift political clean-up, and that is why Ms. Ally can confidently say “…if that (the WPA leaving the coalition) is so, what else can you do…” The line in the sand has been drawn on the WPA; tek’ it or leave it buster, we on top now.So do not worry about Mr. Tacuma Ogunseye bubbling his gum. Two shakes up from Ms. Ally and he shall put his tail between his legs and run for the hills. The hypocrisy in the WPA and the AFC today is there for all to see. They pretend not to know that an elite inner core dominates this Granger cabal. This Granger cabal believes it has titled rights to not consult with the people, but, at the same time, make decisions for self-enrichment, even if it means indebting the masses without their permission. That is why they can make financially reckless decisions to deplete the gold reserves by 85% in less than 20 months.This same inner Granger clique has depleted the stock of cash in the public corporation by some G$20 billion in less than 2 years, and continues to spend over a billion per year on international travels for themselves, friends and family. These are not accidental acts!This Granger cabal is no different from the Burnham cabal that ejected all the paying passengers and commandeered the Guyana Airways as he saw fit then. The contradictions of the cruelty in those days was so much that Mr. Burnham demanded the stocking of his flights with the most expensive whiskeys and caviars for himself and his political bootlickers when, as the Head of State, he provided little money for the children of Guyana who were suffering from “beriberi” and white mouth. This is the nature of the Granger cabal, same stripes as the Burnham dictatorship.Although Dr. Hinds would have made a better Minister of Education than anyone sitting in the Granger cabinet, he shall never be called to serve. Why? In the eyes of the aloft and elitist Mr. Granger, he is nothing but a dark-skinned country boy from Buxton that does not fit in with the group that is running Guyana today, which is made up of mainly urban mulatto descendants from the League of Coloured People.On Dr. Cheddi Jagan’s 100th birth anniversary, we must all recommit to this struggle against social injustice and economic upliftment in the interest of the working class. With an agent of the “Massa” like Mr. Granger in office, the ALUTA Continua!Sasenarine Singhlast_img read more

US$15M earmarked for Guyana’s border case – Greenidge

first_imgOil bonusA decision was taken by Cabinet to set aside US$15 million from the signing bonus that Government received from US oil giant ExxonMobil to be used towards the border controversy case with Venezuela.Foreign Affairs Minister Carl GreenidgeThis disclosure was made by Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge on Tuesday during a press conference at the Foreign Affairs Ministry, South Road, Georgetown office.While Government had initially received the US$18 million bonus, Greenidge said it was decided that part of the bonus could be used for the legal challenge, while the remaining US$3 million was set aside for training.In that same breath, the Minister said there may be a need for more monies to assist with the legal case as the US$15 million may be inadequate. “It is not possible for me to say what it will cost, the lawyers themselves don’t know,” he explained to media operatives when asked to state how much more would be needed.Greenidge did, however, state that other needs may arise for additional skills and research, and this would require supplementary funds. He again stated, “The US$15 million may not be adequate.”He also reminded that it was Government’s intention to have portions of the signing bonus transferred to the Consolidated Fund whenever there was a need for finances relating to this matter.“So, for 2018, the Minister of Finance (Winston Jordan) will, down the road, come for supplementary funding, and it will be indicated at that time,” Greenidge explained to the media.Meanwhile, while Government has already started legal proceedings at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the Minister explained that the ICJ will determine whether it has jurisdiction to address the matter.“That’s a routine, all of them do that. Having looked at the case and determined where they can look…, what is within their powers, they will say to the two parties ‘we will begin’ in which case, Guyana will be required to submit a full document of its case,” he said.When asked to provide the names of the members of the legal team that will represent Guyana at the ICJ, the Minister said it was too early to divulge such information and promised to do that at the appropriate time. There are, however, reports that Sir Shridath Ramphal will lead the Guyanese legal team.The Foreign Affairs Minister said whether or not Venezuela chose to participate in the case, at the end of the day, the ICJ’s ruling would be binding.This process, the Minister said, could require oral hearings and written submissions from both countries.The ICJ is now awaiting a response from Venezuela following the submission of the case by Guyana.Greenidge also used the opportunity to warn that the ICJ could use several grounds to ‘walk away’ from the case. As such, he urged the media and the public to be cautious in what they say and report on this sensitive matter. He said these things could interfere with the case.Some two months after United Nations Secretary General António Guterres had handed over the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy case to the ICJ for final settlement, formal proceedings were filed on March 30, asking the World Court to confirm the legal validity and binding effect of the 1899 Arbitral Award. Guyana’s application was submitted to the ICJ by Second Vice President and Foreign Affairs Minister Greenidge.Secretary General Guterres earlier this year chose the ICJ as the next means of resolving the controversy, which arose as a result of Venezuela’s contention that the Arbitral Award of 1899 with regard to the frontier between British Guiana and Venezuela was null and void.According to Guyana’s application to the ICJ, Venezuela had, for more than 60 years, consistently recognised and respected the validity of the binding force of the 1899 Award and the 1905 Map agreed by both sides in furtherance of the Award.Guyana maintains that the 1899 Arbitral Award that settled the boundary between Guyana and Venezuela was full and final, but Venezuela has, for several decades, registered its diplomatic and military objection to Guyana’s development of its natural resources onshore and offshore the Essequibo.last_img read more

Salah’s belief can spur Liverpool on to greater things: Klopp

first_img0Shares0000Mohammed Salah signs a new contract with Liverpool in a major boost for the club says manager Jurgen Klopp © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLondon, United Kingdom, Jul 2 – Egyptian international Mohamed Salah’s signing of a new long-term contract is a major boost for Liverpool’s ambitions of delivering trophies, said manager Jurgen Klopp on Monday.Klopp added the fact the 26-year-old striker — who scored 44 goals in just 52 appearances last season — had signed such a deal reflected his belief the club were on course for a successful era. Liverpool have been praised for their freeflowing style of football under Klopp, but the fact remains the charismatic German has taken them to three finals in his tenure and fallen short on each occasion.Salah’s goals, after joining last year from Italian outfit AS Roma for an initial £37 million ($48.7 million), played a large part in Liverpool reaching the Champions League final against Real Madrid.However, that proved a rare sour note for the player as Salah was slammed to the turf by Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, causing a painful separation of his left shoulder.Salah returned to action for the first time in three weeks against Russia at the World Cup in their group match last month but was a shadow of the player that had dazzled for Liverpool despite scoring against both the Russians and then the Saudi Arabians.“(The new contract) demonstrates two things very clearly — his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him,” Klopp told the Liverpool website.“I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season,” said Klopp.“We want world-class talent to see they have a home at Anfield where they can fulfil all their professional dreams and ambitions – we are working hard together to achieve this.“When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.”– “We’re never gonna stop” –Salah’s exploits both for Liverpool and Egypt — in inspiring them to their first World Cup finals since 1990 — brought him several awards including African player of the year.However, Klopp said the refreshing thing about Salah is that he is a team man through and through which will make progressing and winning trophies easier. Klopp thrilled Salah has prolonged his stay at Liverpool © AFP / Paul ELLIS“The key thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it,” said Klopp.“He recognises his teammates and this club helped him achieve individual success last season. He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special.”Klopp — who is taking charge of his first day’s pre-season training including Guinean arrival Naby Keita signed last year but under the agreement remained with his German club RB Leipzig — said the club needed to answer their fans demands for continual progress. “Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think,” said Klopp.“Last season was special with many special moments — but we want more.“We want to be more successful and achieve more together – as the supporters sang so loudly, ‘we’re never gonna stop’.“This has to be the attitude individually and collectively.”Salah registered the second-highest total of goals in a season in Liverpool’s history, just three behind Ian Rush’s record of 47 and surpassing Roger Hunt’s haul of 42.Thirty-two of those came in the Premier League, setting a new record in a 38-game season and earning him the Golden Boot.Salah was named as both the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year for his efforts in 2017-18.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Nine-year-old boy lived a short but meaningful life

first_imgRESEDA – Because of Gabriel, an otherwise wilted garden now grows green. A woman changed her career and became a nurse to care for children. A family bought its first home. Because of 9-year-old Gabriel and his easy smile, other lives also got better. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“He gave everybody a purpose, a new outlook,” Crystal Flowers said of her nephew, Gabriel Antonio Herrera Jr., who died earlier this month. Children die every day from disease or accidents, violence or carelessness, and Gabriel was born with congenital heart disease. But for his grandmother and aunt – who adopted and raised him – the boy’s death seemed painfully abrupt because he had defied the odds for so long. And always with a smile. Congenital heart disease affects more than 30,000 American children each year, and surgery can usually repair the deformities – but not for Gabriel, whose tiny heart was in his body backward. He also was developmentally disabled and was missing his right eye socket. Still, when he smiled, he looked like he was winking – as if to say, “Everything will be OK.” “His heart was so deformed,” said his grandmother, Jaye Flowers. “We got many calls from the hospital. They would say, `You’ve got to come down here now.”‘ He underwent his first surgery when he was 5 days old. He won’t make it, doctors said after giving Gabriel a tracheotomy to help him breathe easier. But Gabriel defied their predictions. Another operation followed when he was 5 years old. He won’t see his sixth birthday, doctors said after they installed a cardiac pacemaker. But Gabriel again defied their predictions. And the family even threw a birthday party for him. He won’t walk. He won’t talk. He won’t ride a bicycle or go to school, some doctors said. But Gabriel also defied all of those predictions. And he even did much more. At the Sven Lokrantz Special Education Center School in Reseda, he became the cafeteria and attendance monitor. He watered an otherwise wilted school garden religiously, until it grew green. “Everybody was amazed,” his grandmother said. “He learned to ride a bike. He learned some sign language and how to get his point across. He couldn’t stand to see people crying or sad. He would squeeze my hand as if to say, ‘Do something.”‘ Gabriel was born at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles in 1998. His mother was 16; his father, 18. The teen parents loved the child but were overwhelmed by his needs. So Jaye Flowers, his grandmother, adopted him – with help from her daughter. “My daughter, his aunt, worked nights, and I worked days,” Jaye Flowers said. “We rearranged our schedules. It just became part of life.” Nurses helped care for the boy always, and one of them, Dawn Day, said everyone who met Gabriel was touched in some way. “They called him a miracle child,” said Day, who helped care for the boy for six years. In time, in caring for Gabriel and watching him grow, his family grew right along with him. His Aunt Crystal changed her career path – from teacher to nurse. She earned her license and now works at Childrens Hospital to care for other children like Gabriel. “It’s what Gabriel would have wanted,” the 30-year-old woman said. “It was my true calling.” And his grandmother became stronger. “I had a very sick husband at the time,” she said. “My husband was disabled, but Gabriel kept me going. When my husband died, I overcame it because Gabriel needed me. “He was a motivating force for me. He was my life.” And then Gabriel’s grandmother and aunt decided that maybe they could buy a house – a more stable environment than they had found in rentals. They hoped for a house they saw in Reseda, where Gabriel could have his own room, large enough for his hospital bed. But the price was too high, and they thought they couldn’t afford it. However, the owners not only lowered the price, but also installed central air-conditioning and heating, after they met Gabriel, who chatted with them in his way, with a smile and a wink. As soon as the buyers moved in, photographs of Gabriel began lining shelves and glass cases. He’s in the snow. Riding a bike. In class photos. Wearing a Santa Claus hat. And always – always – smiling. “No matter what he was going through, he never cried,” Jaye Flowers said. Earlier this month, Gabriel underwent heart surgery for the third time. This time, his doctors said he had a 95 percent chance of survival. But they were wrong again. A leak in his heart valve could not be repaired. His body gave up, and he could not be resuscitated. Gabriel died peacefully, his grandmother said. His room, complete with photographs of animals and a box of toys, is as he left it. His friends and teachers at the Lokrantz School – who had sent him a giant get-well card, hoping he would come back – took up a collection to help fund his funeral, which the family is struggling to pay for. Gabriel was buried at Eternal Valley Memorial Park in Newhall just before Christmas. Pallbearers ranged in age from 21 to 67: men from all walks of life who came to know Gabriel. Mourners included doctors and nurses, social workers and teachers, neighbors and others. “Gabriel just had that kind of effect on people,” Jaye Flowers said. “He taught us all that you take what is given and do the best with it.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Bulldogs (20-3-3) this year won their Div. II playoff opener for the second year in a row, the first time they have accomplished the feat. “I’m excited about what we have coming back on the field next year, but it’s not going to be easy to replace Kellie,” Highland coach Juan Paolo said. “She’s an amazing player.” Although Highland suffered a 2-0 second-round loss at Santa Barbara, Drenner left a lasting impression in the final home game of her career. In a 2-1 first-round victory over Canyon of Canyon Country, Drenner made six saves, including four point-blank stops inside 20 yards, as the Bulldogs completed a 9-0-0 home schedule. “She made three or four saves where I was just shaking my head, wishing we had her on our side,” Canyon coach Steve Ladanyi said. “If she was in net for us, I really think we could’ve been playing in the CIF finals.” – Erik Boal PLAYER OF THE YEAR Kellie Drenner, Sr., Highland, G DAILY NEWS ALL-ANTELOPE VALLEY Kia Barnett, Sr., Quartz Hill, D Megan Couch, Sr., Desert Christian, M Shannon Cox, Jr., Quartz Hill, M Patricia Garcia, Jr., Lancaster, M Stacy Guijarro, Fr., Antelope Valley, F Lynn Huma, Sr., Lancaster, D Samantha Johnson, Fr., Highland, M Lacey Lindaman, Sr., Quartz Hill, G Courtney Morrell, Jr., Highland, F Amanda Theilhart, Sr., Highland, D Farryn Townley, Sr., Highland, F 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Highland possessed one of the area’s most explosive offensive teams, but it was the Bulldogs’ last line of defense that was most instrumental in their success. Highland goalkeeper Kellie Drenner, previously overshadowed by Quartz Hill’s All-Southern Section netminder Alicia Lugo (who decided not to play her senior year), had the spotlight to herself this season, and she responded with a superb performance as the Bulldogs retained their Golden League title. Drenner made 91 saves, surrendered 12 goals – just three in league play – and recorded 15 shutouts, receiving league MVP and first-team All-Southern Section Div. II honors. The CSUN-bound Drenner is the Daily News’ Antelope Valley Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year. “It’s something I dreamed of as a kid,” said Drenner, the starting goalkeeper in two postseason all-star games. “I always wanted to play soccer in college.
