first_imgThe subsidiary accumulates two years in an almost endless rosary of serious injuries (Fran García, Feuillassier …). “It seems they have put a curse on us,” they said at the club. This course, three stood out. Cesar Gelabert, called to be the figure of Castilla, last July he fractured his clavicle and then had a problem in the nasal septum that forced him to play with a mask. The result? Only 13 games with the team. Brazilian Rodrigo Rodrigues (cost € 1M in 2018) suffered a meniscus tear and Peter, the starting point, the tears of the anterior cruciate ligament, the external meniscus, and the internal meniscus.’Gual interruptus’ … and a lot of inexperienceAmong the almost picturesque situations that this reduced end of season will offer for Castilla is that of the scorer Marc Gual. That injury from Pedro in January forced the club to mobilize. He managed the emergency signing of Gual within hours of the market closing for just six months (he is on loan from Sevilla). After only six games (and two goals) will have to end his brief stint as a Real Madrid player abruptly. Reinier, after scoring Coruxo with Castilla.JUAN AGUADO Raúl, giving instructions in a preseason game.PEPE ANDRES It has been noted, without that help from a player who came from Second, the inexperience. Raúl’s idea was to have boys still in Youth age. He debuted in Las Rozas with a lineup that averaged only 19 years. The youngest, along with Las Palmas Atlético, of the 80 clubs that make up the Segunda B … He has also had to work with four goalkeepers (Altube, Belman -now injured-, Fuidias and Lucas Cañizares). Despite that Beardless castile and injuries, seven had found his eleven …I stop the Youth and there will be exitsThe talents that were coming out in Juvenile A of Poyatos and they must be the base of the next Castilla (Morante, Sintes, Gutiérrez …) have not been able to tan in the final stretch of the campaign. Neither Youth League (the eighths were suspended against Juventus), nor the King’s Cup nor the Champions Cup, if they qualified. That litter will go up without that baggage to the jungle that is the Second B.Furthermore, Raúl knows that the club will have to reconfigure Castilla. They are professional footballers and the outings take precedence, because they have offers on the table. There are youth squads with many girlfriends (Gelabert, Blanco, Baeza …) and others who by age have completed a cycle and are ready to jump (Javi Hernández, De la Fuente …). This summer, with First and Second Clubs eager for quality transfers not to spend on transfers, from the outside you look at Castilla with greed… The RFEF proposal to settle the promotions to Second with the playoff counting only the top four finishers in each group before the break leaves Castilla, seventh in Group I of Segunda B, offside. Raul and their kids waited for a ray of hope not to give up the course because of the Covid-19. Thus, the coach and the castillistas ‘teleworked’ as best they could from home, thinking of resuming a season that was beginning to go up. It cannot be. Raúl’s first project with Castilla remains as an unfinished work… Without Reinier and many serious injuriesFor several reasons, Raúl began the preseason with an exceptional attack (Kubo and Rodrygo) and ran out of them. The Japanese did not get to play any official match before leaving on loan to Mallorca and Rodrygo, just two before being claimed by Zidane. Just before the break, Rodrygo fell again against Sanse and was a cyclone, with a great goal included. The Brazilian Reinier (18 years old) was going to have a good time in the subsidiary and had offered two goals and one assist after joining Madrid in January for € 35M. “He will give us great things because he is very talented, it will be important,” said Raúl himself. It was going to be a differential factor. Another year in Segunda B when the subsidiary was going upNobody in the club, from the leadership (Florentino Pérez) to the immediate leadership (Ramón Martínez, responsible for Factory) you demanded in summer Raúl ascend to Castilla Second. To the seven he is seen as a future heir to Zidane on the bench of the first team and as with the Marseillaise, Castilla is a formative step, without pressure. With everything and with that, the coronavirus has cut off the possibility of a promotion that would remove the subsidiary from the bronze category, where it has lived since 2014.But it’s gone from less to more this year. Castilla bottomed out in Mareo on November 3. He fell 3-0 at halftime against Sporting B, there was raulina Raúl in the locker room and the subsidiary almost came back (4-2). The character of seven is noted. Castilla came to watch the relegation zone closely because outside Valdebebas it has been a disaster (it would be 16th in the table if only points were scored at home). It was x-rayed by the Ibiza coach, veteran Pablo Alfaro. “This Castilla can have a fantastic day and another very minor …”. Even so, Raúl was achieving regularity in his pupils. In the last five games before the break, three wins and one draw. Castilla was going up.last_img read more

first_imgThe ‘filthy’ condition of Monrovia Slaughter House coupled with the “reckless” handling of animals in the popular site has forced lawmakers to take action aimed at bringing the situation to a halt.The Monrovia Slaughter House, located on Jamaica Road on Somalia Drive, has been a focus of negative attraction for commercial animals over the years thereby prompting concerns from public health experts and others about the handling of animals and materials used in processing meat for the general public consumption.With these concerns looming, the House of Representatives has mandated its functionaries to assist in tackling the problem.Plenary yesterday mandated its committees on Agriculture and Health to investigate the movement of animals, particularly cows, goats and sheep in the Jamaica Road vicinity in an effort to foster a civilized, peaceful and clean environment.The House’s action was informed by a communication addressed to that August body by Grand Kru County Representative Numene T. H. Bartekwa.Bartekwa had complained of the risk posed by animals allowed to move in the streets and the health condition the moving animals transport to human environment.“Institutions and individuals who are engaged in the management and sale of animals – especially cows – at the Slaughter House usually take these huge size of animals in their hundreds and spread them on the road to and from Johnsonville, outside Monrovia with no regard to the lives and properties of people located and commuting along that road just for the intention of going to feed the animals,” Bartekwa declared.According to him, said action has been causing many problems on a daily basis including, but not limited to “obstruction of free flow of traffic, kids injuring themselves when running from the animals as well as from those in charge of the animals.”Bartekwa opted for the appearance of the Ministers of Agriculture, Justice and Police Director Chris Massaquoi to answer to questions about animals’ movement and the health condition of the area.The Grand Kru Lawmaker’s quest was tabled when Montesrrado County Representative, Julius Berrian’s motion called for the line ministries and agencies to be investigated by committees and committees make a report to plenary in two weeks before any action would be instituted, if it becomes necessary.

first_imgWith any oil producing country in the world, there has always been incidents of oil spills, and as such, Guyana must make all the necessary plans to ensure that it can respond effectively and efficiently in the event that any such incident occurs offshore Guyana when production begins in 2020.This is the firm view expressed by former Trinidad and Tobago Energy Minister Kevin Ramnarine, who is advising Government not only on the development of a local oil spill contingency plan, but one that will cater for neighbouring countries.Former T&T Energy Minister, Kevin RamnarineRamnarine dubbed it “bilateral oil spill contingency plan.”“I don’t know of any country in the world that produces oil that has never had oil spill; whether small, medium or large, “the former Energy Minister said.He explained that ever since the 1989 Alaska oil spill (one of the world’s largest oil spills), it changed environmental and shipping standards. “And so that also changed Exxon’s behaviour. It became a much safer company after that.” However, Ramnarine said having a bilateral oil spill contingency plans with your neighbouring countries is important.“Because, of course oil spilled in water doesn’t only select to one country. We had an experience in Trinidad where in 2017 our oil spill from Trinidad found its way into Venezuela,” he recalled.Contingency planGovernment had disclosed that an oil spill contingency plans is being crafted. The Civil Defence Commission (CDC) is the lead agency that is formulating the national response plan. But the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) are also assisting.Meanwhile, the former Minister also warned that Guyana should not make plans based on assumptions and is therefore advising the country against borrowing money before first oil. Ramnarine who said there are some examples of this not turning out well for some countries.“I think Guyana would be best advised to wait for the revenues to start to flow because there’s another country Ghana, where they started to make plans based on assumptions of a certain oil production level and a certain price and then the oil production level didn’t happen, and the price fell,” he told media operatives at the sidelines of the Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit and Exhibition (GIPEX) 2018.Ramnarine noted that while some initial work on the country’s infrastructure may be needed before production begins in 2020, this should not be done to the extent of requiring too much finances.“So, I think the two have to happen simultaneously. I think some developments have not but when the revenue starts to flow in 2020, some of which will be used for infrastructure…I would really wait for the monies to start to flow to begin with the significant infrastructure,” he explained. Asked whether he thinks that Guyana has put enough mechanisms in place to protect its cost recovery, the former Minister responded in the affirmative, but noted that institutional strengthening is key.“Those persons should be in the process of being trained right now and you can probably send people abroad to train or bring people from other countries that have experience in cost recovery…”Ramnarine stressed the need for training in the area of metering and calibration, which he claimed is a huge problem facing the oil sector in his home country, Trinidad and Tobago.“So, there has to be officers in the Petroleum Commission, whose job it is to go and read the meters and calibrate because if the meter is off by a couple of per cent, we’re talking about $340,000 of oil per day. So if you make an error of 0.5 per cent, you’re talking about big money. Small errors mean big money.”Ramnarine concluded that while Government is consulting it must ensure that in the end, they make the right decisions and choices because these decisions will determine the future of the sector.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City completed a treble by thrashing Watford in the FA Cup final © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 6 – Manchester City have launched a legal bid to stop UEFA banning them from the Champions League over alleged financial misconduct, according to British media reports on Thursday.City, who retained the Premier League title this season, are in danger of being kicked out of future editions of the Champions League after UEFA probed reported Financial Fair Play breaches. The investigation was triggered by European football’s governing body in March after claims City, who have Abu Dhabi-based owners, hid revenue from overvalued commercial deals in order to meet the UEFA spending guidelines.According to the Daily Telegraph, the Premier League champions have now approached the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport ahead of an imminent sentencing decision from UEFA Club Financial Control Body’s (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber.It is believed the adjudicatory chamber is unlikely to rule against the conclusions of chief investigator Yves Leterme, who signed over his probe into an alleged payments deception two weeks ago and is thought to have recommended City should be banned from the Champions League.That would leave Pep Guardiola’s side out of Europe’s elite club competition, potentially for the 2020-21 campaign.But City are believed to be challenging UEFA’s right to send the case to their adjudicatory chamber and its competence to sit in judgement on the club at all.City did not respond to a request for comment, but the club have previously said the referral to the judicial branch “ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City”.City, who added the FA Cup and League Cup this season for an unprecedented domestic treble, also said the allegations of wrongdoing were “entirely false” and that there is “comprehensive proof” otherwise.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
