LaLiga and CSD do not understand AFE’s complaints about the protocol

first_imgNeither the Superior Sports Council (CSD) nor LaLiga understand the complaints of the Association of Spanish Soccer Players (AFE) to the protocol approved by the Task Force to Promote Sport (GTID) to return to play because “it is a protocol endorsed by Health.” Both organizations also remember that AFE itself is part of the GTID and that he had the opportunity to present his proposals during the meetings to discuss the protocol.In addition, in LaLiga they assure that in AFE they had the keys of the protocol and the draft of the document “for almost a month” and that the union representatives where the protocol was studied “made no objection”. In LaLiga they believe that the machinery to return to activity is running and that the professional players of First and Second they will start in the next few days with the gradual return to training. Regarding the concentrations, another point about the AFE complains, in LaLiga they understand that “they are to protect the health of the players and their families” and remember that “they are approved by protocol and therefore have the approval of Health” In very similar terms to those of LaLiga, the CSD has manifested itself. Council sources have indicated that “the constructive will has reigned at all times within the Task Force for the Promotion of Sport (GTID). They know that the entire text, also prepared with their own recommendations, has the approval of Health“Thus, the CSD and LaLiga versions coincide in two fundamental aspects: that the protocol for the return to activity has the approval of the ministry of Salvador Illa and that the AFE itself had the opportunity to present its complaints in the Working Group in which the document was discussed.last_img read more

Region 10 schools going smart, solar in 2019

first_imgStarting in 2019, the Region 10 Department of Education will be focusing on the green initiative and bringing schools on board to rely on renewable energy.Regional Education Officer of Region 10 (ag) Keane Adams says solar panels will be installed in more schools in the new year. Another transition the department will be making is to transform traditional chalkboard classrooms into smart classrooms which will revolutionise learning to meet the standards of a technological educational sector.“That is one criterion we are trying to fill, come 2019, we will have more solar energies in all schools and in 2019 too, we will have smart classrooms where children will be better able to interact, it will no longer be chalk and talk, so we are getting there,” Adams told the Department of Information.For this new term, most schools were given a facelift, allowing the children to commence the new school term in a cleaner, brighter and more conduciveKeane Adamsenvironment. The focus, according to Adams, was the beautification of sanitary blocks, the physical infrastructure and the overall aesthetics of the school, so that children, as well as teachers, can feel more comfortable and learning can be done more effectively.“I am happy and elated that children are better accommodated because for Region 10, we would have exhausted our budget for furniture and equipment, schools are better equipped. We are not 100 per cent, but we are better than where we were six months ago. We are a bit more comfortable,” Adams is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.The schools that would have seen extensive refurbishing are the South Amelia’s Ward, Pine Street, Republic Avenue, Kwakwani Water Front, Kwakwani Park, Retrieve Nursery Schools, the Mackenzie and Watooka Day Primary Schools and the Christianburg Wismar and the Linden Foundation Secondary School as well the Mackenzie High School amongst others. Refurbishing works include tiling, painting, ceiling, replacement of equipment and furniture and other improvement works to the physical structure of the school.last_img read more

GARDA WHO SAVED DOUBLE KILLER GALLAGHER SAYS HE WOULD DO IT AGAIN

first_imgThe heroic Garda who saved the life of double-killer John Gallagher has said he would do it again.Retired Detective Tom Needham bravely jumped into more than 10 feet of water to pull the 22 year old killer from his car.Gallagher had driven off a pier near Donegal Town as he went on the run after killing mother and daughter Anne and Annie Gillespie in the grounds of Sligo General Hospital on September 18th, 1988. He had fixed himself to the steering wheel of the car with handcuffs he had brought but Tom managed to get a cutters and drag Gallagher to safety.Amazingly the former detective, who retired 11 years ago, says he thinks Gallagher was under-water for up to 20 minutes.He told Donegal Daily “Again the emergency services got there and stuff, I would say it was up to 20 minutes.“I think there may have been a pocket of air in the car which helped him to survive. “When I got him out of the water, I squeezed his stomach very hard and he started to come around a bit. He didn’t say anything because he wasn’t in a state to speak,” said Mr Needham.Looking back to the shocking events almost 25 years ago, Tom, who was then in his 40s, said he was only doing his duty.And he says he would do the same thing again.“The thinking that any Garda has is that it is part of our training. Our thought is always on the preservation of life and that’s my thought today despite all that has happened,” he said.Tom said he never thought Gallagher was insane because he drove his car and tried to get back to his home in Lifford but was caught. Although he may now be planning a bid for freedom from the Central Mental Hospital where he handed himself in two weeks ago, Tom says Gallagher will always have a life sentence hanging over him.“Maybe it has started to play on his mind now. If it had not stuck there may be a few more on his list.“My job was to save his life. He has to live with the rest of his life with his actions and it plays on his mind every day for the rest of his life.“It’s a sentence even though he might be a free man he has to live with it. It’s a life sentence for everyone involved,” he said. Despite his heroic actions in saving a life, Tom revealed he has never been recognised for his actions.GARDA WHO SAVED DOUBLE KILLER GALLAGHER SAYS HE WOULD DO IT AGAIN was last modified: May 26th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Central Mental HospitalJohn GallagherTOM NEEDHAMlast_img read more

Why are these massive planets so close to their suns?

first_imgThe huge gas-swaddled planet 51 Pegasi b orbits just 7.5 million kilometers from its parent star (a distance about one-eighth the size of Mercury’s orbit)—so close, in fact, that its “year” lasts just 4 Earth days or so. Other such “hot Jupiters” orbit their suns even closer than that. Ever since this odd class of planets was first discovered about 2 decades ago, scientists have wondered how gas giants, a type of planet found only in our outer solar system, end up in orbits so exceedingly close to their parent stars? Previous studies have suggested that gravitational interactions with other large planets in their solar systems created orbital chaos that drove them inward from a more distant orbit. A new analysis supports that notion. Researchers used software to simulate the planetary motions within a two-planet system: one being a Jupiter-sized planet (depicted in the artist’s concept above) orbiting its parent star at about the same distance Earth orbits the sun, and the other a large planet in a highly tilted orbit that was slightly larger. Over a simulated interval of 200 million years, the inner planet slowly migrated even farther inward to become a “warm Jupiter” orbiting its parent star at about the same distance Mercury does in our solar system, the researchers report online today in Science. (Previous studies have identified six distant solar systems that include both a warm Jupiter and a large companion planet in a highly tilted orbit, the researchers note.) Over the life of a star, which can last billions of years, continued gravitational interactions with the other large planet in the system could drive a warm Jupiter even closer to its parent star, converting it into a hot Jupiter.last_img read more

Those conspiring for President’s Rule in Maharashtra are insulting people’s mandate: Sanjay Raut

first_imgSenior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday claimed there was a “consensus” between the BJP and his party before the Maharashtra Assembly elections on sharing the chief minister’s post.Amid the stalemate continuing over government formation in the state, Mr. Raut told reporters here that no fresh proposal has been received from the BJP or sent to it.He claimed farmers and the working class want a Shiv Sena chief minister and have hopes and expectations from the Uddhav Thackeray-led party.To a question on when there would be a consensus on the chief minister’s post, the Rajya Sabha member said, “There was a consensus on the post before elections.”Ruling out any new proposal for government formation, Mr. Raut reiterated that the Shiv Sena expects implementation of what was decided and agreed upon before the elections.“Why waste time on new proposals. We want a discussion on what was agreed upon earlier. No new proposal has been received or sent,” he said.On the possibility of imposition of President’s rule in the state, Mr. Raut said, “We will not be responsible for it. Those conspiring to do this are insulting the people’s mandate.”He said wherever Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aaditya Thackeray, who won the state polls from Worli seat in Mumbai, were touring to review crop losses due to unseasonal rains, the farmers and working class were looking at the party with hopes and expectations.“All are eager to have chief minister from the Shiv Sena,” he said.Mr. Raut refused to respond to a question on whether the NCP has agreed to share the chief minister’s post. “We will talk about it,” he said.The Sharad Pawar-led NCP on Tuesday said a political alternative can be worked out in the state if the Shiv Sena declared that it had snapped ties with the BJP.Sources in the NCP said their party wants Arvind Sawant, the lone Shiv Sena minister in the Union government, to resign before going ahead further with the Sena.There has been no headway in government formation after results of the state polls were declared on October 24.The BJP, which won 105 seats, and the Shiv Sena, which bagged 56 seats, are locked in a bitter tussle over sharing of the chief minister’s post and ministerial portfolios in new government, even 13 days after the Assembly poll verdict handed them enough seats to cobble up a coalition government.They won 161 seats together in the 288-member House, much above the halfway mark of 145.Besides, the opposition NCP won 54 seats while the Congress got 44 seats.last_img read more

APOAKLAND, Calif. — With the grind of a long NBA season wearing on his team, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr believed it was time for his players to hear a new voice in the huddle: their own.Kerr turned over most of the coaching duties to his players on Monday night and they responded in fine fashion, playing with more focus than they had in recent weeks in a 129-83 victory over the Phoenix Suns.ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Payton scored 16 points in the first quarter before Curry got on the scoreboard, but he got little help.

As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction, guide them. We don’t control them. They determine their own fate. I don’t think we’ve focused well the last month. It just seemed like the right thing to do.”Kerr said he told the players of his plan after the previous game and they ran the show for most of the day. Andre Iguodala took over at morning shootaround, JaVale McGee ran the computer for the film session and Iguodala, Draymond Green and David West got most of the work designing plays and running the huddle during timeouts.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutKerr and his assistants handled the substitutions before allowing the players to take over from there.”It had to do with me trying to reach my team and I have not reached them the last month,” Kerr said. ”They’re tired of my voice. I’m tired of my voice. I wasn’t reaching them so we figured this was a good night to pull something out of the hat.” LATEST STORIES After the game, Kerr made a point of seeking out Phoenix interim coach Jay Triano to tell him the move wasn’t made out of any disrespect for the Suns, who became the first team to reach 40 losses this season.”You have to do what you have to do to build your own team up,” Triano said. ”If he thinks that helps them, I tip my hat.”Stephen Curry scored 22 points for the Warriors. Omri Casspi added 19 in a rare start in place of the injured Green and Kevin Durant had 17 as Golden State won its 12th straight in the series, its longest active streak against any team.Elfrid Payton scored 29 points in his second game since being acquired at the trade deadline from Orlando, but Phoenix still lost its sixth straight and 11th in the past 12 games.”We have to keep fighting,” Payton said. ”We can’t hang our heads.
