Lunin, close to going to Oviedo

first_imgCurrently the holder is Champagne (34 years old), but the Asturian set He has guaranteed to Lunin that this position will be for him from the first moment. That is the main reason for the Ukrainian election. First club deals came, but the priority right now is to play after two failed assignments. Last year was a substitute for Cuellar in the Leganés and this year the same thing has happened in Valladolid with Masip. The Madrid has received many calls asking about their situation and the decision, except last-minute surprise, is taken: He will go to Oviedo. The main obstacle right now is that Asturians get the OK from LaLiga to be able to register soccer players in this winter market. When that occurs, the logical thing is that the arrival of the goalkeeper is announced. Lunin is near of becoming Oviedo’s new goalkeeper in quality of loan until the end of this season. Madrid, just like advanced AS on December 10, he intends to break the transfer of the Ukrainian goalkeeper in Valladolid because he doesn’t want another season to pass without just minutes (The owner is Masip and the Real Madrid player only plays in the Cup). The good relationship between the two clubs causes that Pucela has not put any problem to this option, as evidenced by the fact that They have thought of José Antonio Caro, Goalkeeper who has played the first leg of the season on loan at the Ponferradina.center_img Both Madrid and the goalkeeper consider the Second Spanish to be a very competitive competition to grow. The important thing It is adding minutes to gain experience, although to guarantee them you have to lower a category. Oviedo is currently in a delicate situation: 17th and only one point above the descent. Therefore, Lunin one will be found maximum pressure which, they consider in Madrid, will help you give quality leap to become the next white goalkeeper course (Areola will return to PSG).last_img read more

Late Goal Gives USA Win over Ghana

first_imgHas the United States found the antidote to shake off the ghost of a perennial enemy?The Americans shocking victory over their two-time nemesis, Ghana may have answered the question as substitute John Brooks made that certain with a late goal in their World Cup match last Monday.Brooks, making his first appearance in an official FIFA tournament, grabbed a late winner to make sure that Ghana’s stubbornness was put to rest, gave the Americans a chance for the knockout stage.Monday’s clash at the Estadio das Dunas in Natal, Brazil, was the first match in the zone, described as the Group of Death.With the victory, the Americans got their revenge for double losses that Ghana caused in their two previous World Cup engagements.The American’s announced they were a breed with a different option in 29 seconds when skipper Clint Dempsey scored one of the fastest goals in World Cup history, in fact the sixth but Ghana’s Andre Ayew snatched the equalizer in the 82nd minute.Ghana’s equalizer came in style. Asamoah Gyan sent a pass to Ayew, who received the pass before hitting the ball home with his left foot.Ghana thereafter went full blast and exerted enormous pressure on the Americans as they desperately searched for the second goal till Brooks’ header changed the direction of the game to give the Americans a deserving victory.Though the Americans came out winners, it was clear that the hostility between the two nations would not end in this competition.The Americans cannot easily forget so soon how much they have come, this time to be one of the contenders in a highly touted group.In the World Cup of 2006 and 2010, the Black Stars eliminated the United States in the group of 16, which was during the knockout stage.The Black Stars, now finding themselves in a difficult position will take on Germany on Saturday and Ghana cannot afford to lose, especially so when the Americans will be playing crest fallen Portugal, where a win or a draw is all that they would need.But with Germany in a devastating form, crushing Portugal 5-1 in their opening match, Ghanaian jujuman, Kwaku Bonsam who claimed he was responsible for Portugal’s Christiano Ronaldo’s recent injury might be find his career in danger if the Black Stars’ fortunes collapse against Germany.American Coach Jurgen Klinsmann told journalists after the match that he knew the U.S. would have chances to win the match, even after giving up the tying goal.He said: “I said to the bench a few minutes before our winner ‘We are going to get some chances—we need to push and grind it out.’ We trained over and over on set pieces and it was well deserved.“We have a great spirit and fight until the last minute. It was a grind but it was a wonderful one at the end of the day. There is stuff we need to improve. We had problems with keeping the ball.”Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah lamented his team’s missed chances, telling “All I can say is that it was a very tough game and when you play at this high level any little mistake can cost you dearly. We had a lot of the ball and created a lot of chances, but we didn’t make the most of our chances, but USA took theirs.“It’s not going to be easy to qualify for the group, but we’ll give everything to do just that. We’re going to have to play well against Germany and I know we’ll give them a good game.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgThe amazing pictures show Cathy before and after she started to jive!A Donegal mum has revealed how she jived off an incredible SIX STONE in weight.Mum of two Cathy McGuigan form Letterkenny looks amazing after dropping from a generous size 22 dress to a jaw dropping slimline size 14.Cathy will feature on RTE Stetsons and Stilettos tonight at 6.30pm when she tells her story. And Cathy, 40, revealed how she would recommend jiving to anyone who wants to lose a bit of weight.“She said: “Jiving is a great way to lose weight. It’s such a full body workout. We call it body magic in Slimming World. Every muscle is being used. You’re out dancing to country music which I love.“I could dance all night and it reallly has helped me shift the pounds. People who haven’t seen me in a year see a total different in me and I put that solely down to the training the jiving.“I lost six stone. My body shape has changed dramatically over the past year or so due to the dancing. I’ve gone form a size 22 to 14. “People tell me I look years younger. When I turned 30 I looked 40 but I turned 40 this year and everyone has been telling me I look years younger. I look like a different person. I feel better than I ever have.”She said she was at her heaviest when she returned to Draperstown in Derry from living in the United States seven years ago.“I was very heavy then. I suffered from an under active thyroid condition which makes it very hard to lose weight. I used it as a crutch for a long time.”But Cathy, who has a 14 year old son called Ethan and a 7 year old daughter called Bethany, said her decision to join slimming world and take up the dance moves she learned as a child has helped the weight to fall off her over the past two years.She said: “I started Slimming World and exercising in the morning and jiving.“I have always loved to jive but when I was heavier it wasn’t fun. I was fit enough to do it. My father taught me when I was 10 or 11 and I actually taught people how to jive in America. “I was always a good jiver but being heavier slowed me down. Losing weight has given me a whole new lease of life. I can do so much more with the kids.“Country music is always on in my house and I’m jiving and singing. I do a bit of singing as well and hopefully this year I’ll make my own CD.“I did it for my own health. I wanted my children growing up with a healthy way of life.”The final episode of the RTE series entitled D.I.V.O.R.C.E follow Cathy and two other country music enthusiasts as they show there is life after marriage on Ireland country music scene. The separated Donegal mum said she would like to find romance while swinging through the moves of the energetic American dance.She said: “I think when you turn 40 and you are split up people expect you to knit. I like to go out. It’s a fun way to lose weight and a fantastic way to meet people. It’s a win win.“You would be hoping to maybe meet somebody out of it someday too.”Cathy, who is tee-total, said she is very choosy about her jiving partners when she goes to see country music stars all over the north of Ireland.She said: “I would be watching for the good jivers on the floor. If they are not a good jiver I won’t dance with them”, she said laughing.“You get injuries. It can be dangerous. If someone turns you and twists your arm the wrong way, it’s not easy.“I’ve a lot more confidence in myself. I don’t drink. I find the majority if young people in Northern Ireland are not drinkers. They go out to dance for the night. It’s great to see it coming back in.”She said the jiving craze has swept throughout the country through all age groups.“It’s 18 to 80. I’m from Letterkenny originally but I live in Draperstown. I jive from everywhere from Letterkenny to Omagh. There is somewhere every night if you wanted.“It’s amazing what has happened in the last year. People plan their holidays around the festivals. I think Nathan Carter coming on the scene as a modern country star and Lisa McHugh.”Stetson and Stillettos will be shown on RTE One tonight at 6.30pm.I JIVED SIX STONE OFF MYSELF – DANCING DONEGAL MUM was last modified: December 6th, 2015 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:Cathy McGuiganjivingletterkennylast_img read more

Loftus-Cheek must get an opportunity at Chelsea this season, says former Blue

first_imgBut former Blues star Melchiot has told talkSPORT ‘it’s about time’ he gets his chance in the Chelsea team.Speaking on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Dutch defender said: “This guy has shown on the world stage that he can play with the best and against the best and can perform.“He needs to get an opportunity at Chelsea.“If he can go somewhere else and make it to England’s World Cup squad, having played in the same league as Chelsea and against the same players Chelsea are playing against…“He performed well on loan and made it to the national team! 2 Loftus-Cheek was one of Crystal Palace’s outstanding players last season, as they survived the Premier League’s worst ever start to finish mid-table 2 The 22-year-old earned plaudits for his performances in Russia Ruben Loftus-Cheek MUST get an opportunity to play regular first-team football at Chelsea this season after proving himself at the World Cup, believes former Blues defender Mario Melchiot.Blues academy graduate Loftus-Cheek will return to Stamford Bridge this summer having impressed during a season-long loan at Crystal Palace last season, where he helped the south London club avoid relegation.The 22-year-old’s commanding performances for the Eagles earned him a call-up to England’s World Cup squad and he impressed in four appearances in Russia, which led to calls from Chelsea fans to see him back in a Blues shirt next season.Loftus-Cheek’s future at the Bridge is uncertain – he is yet to start pre-season at Cobham following England’s run to the semi-finals, and his place in new manager Maurizio Sarri’s team is unknown. “So why doesn’t he get the opportunity at Chelsea? I think it’s about time someone looks at that.“If he doesn’t take his chance, then that’s a different issue. Then you’ve got to sell him and it’s over.“But they need to at least give him a chance.”Listen back to Mario Melchiot on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!last_img read more

Hearings set on UC salaries

first_img Nuez also is asking the Joint Legislative Audit Committee to look at UC compensation and how UC’s salary disclosure policies stack up against comparable institutions.

Dynes has said the system could do a better job explaining executive pay and has appointed a task force to make policy recommendations. On Friday, university spokesman Paul Schwartz said in an e-mail that UC takes its obligation to be publicly accountable seriously. “We welcome the opportunity to discuss with state leaders our compensation practices and the challenges we face in keeping UC competitive in the face of constrained resources,” Schwartz said. But Schwartz said UC officials hope the hearings and audit would come after UC’s internal investigations are complete. Nuez, who is also a member of UC’s governing Board of Regents, said he has approved a request by Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally, D-Compton, chairman of the budget subcommittee on education, to hold hearings in late May or early June. BERKELEY – Criticism of how the University of California rewards top employees has prompted state legislators to schedule hearings next spring on the 10-campus system’s pay policies. “It has become painfully obvious that one of California’s most respected institutions needs to enhance the transparency and disclosure of how they compensate their top management,” Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuez, D-Los Angeles, said in a statement Friday. The announcement follows reports by the San Francisco Chronicle that UC quietly spent millions on bonuses, stipends and other compensation despite a budget crunch that has forced significant student fee increases. UC administrators say they’re still paying executives less than comparable universities around the country and they need to try to stay competitive. last_img read more

Hey Fanboys: Is Today The Day To Buy Apple Stock?

first_imgdan lyons Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Apple shares are getting killed after Apple fell short of Wall Street expectations with its earnings report. Shares started sliding in September, dropping from $705 to about $514 just before the earnings came out. And then, when investors saw the numbers, the bottom fell out and Apple stock plunged more than $50, settling at $460. They may drop more today once the market opens, since all the analysts on Wall Street are bashing Apple.Which raises the question: Is now the time to buy Apple?Keep in mind that investors have made a lot of money by buying Apple when things looked bleak for the company. Also keep in mind that right now, by every measure, Apple stock is ridiculously cheap. The NumbersThe company has $140 billion in the bank, and a market value of $483 billion. That in itself makes no sense.Apple stock is trading at 11.6 times trailing 12 months earnings. That’s cheaper than IBM, which trades at 14 times trailing earnings, and Microsoft, trading at 15. It’s half the multiple that Google is carrying (23). It’s a fraction of what Facebook is selling for (160 times trailing earnings). It’s nearly as cheap as Dell, which is trading at 9 times earnings and doing so poorly that the company is considering going private in a buyout.Apple is cheaper than Johnson & Johnson (19) and Procter & Gamble (20) and Hershey (17.6) and McDonald’s (17.6). In fact Apple is cheaper than the S&P 500 (currently trading at 17 times earnings), cheaper than the NASDAQ (20.6), cheaper than the Dow Jones Industrials (15).Do you really think Apple is a worse company, or has a less bright future, than the average company on a stock index? Well, that’s what Wall Street is saying.Apple is cheap, cheap, cheap. This is bargain basement, fire sale pricing. Negative SentimentBetter yet, everyone on Wall Street is going negative. Jim Cramer says Apple has lost its magic. Nomura says Apple is entering its “ex-growth” era. Investor Jeff Gundlach says Apple is heading to $425 and could go as low as $ says Tim Cook sounded like the former CEO of RIM when he did a call with analysts last night. A very bullish Apple analyst has lowered his target price for the year ahead, though he still rates the stock a Buy.All you Apple fanbloggers who are saying that there’s nothing wrong with Apple, and that “Apple didn’t miss, Wall Street did” – are you ready to put your money where your mouth is?Seriously, who’s buying? Are you?

The Secret Reason the Successful Share Their Secrets

first_imgThere are reasons the most successful people in the world are so transparent about what they believe and what they do.The most successful people in the world don’t have a scarcity mindset. They’re not afraid of sharing what they do because they don’t believe that someone else knowing what they know is in any way going to harm them. In fact, it often makes the pie even larger.Successful people also know that what makes them successful isn’t any kind of secret (despite the fact that much of what you read will suggest there are secrets, and despite the fact that a simple reading of anything described as a secret will quickly reveal some very well known fundamental belief or action). There isn’t any reason not to share what they believe and what they do because it’s already well-known and easily understood.But the biggest reason successful people aren’t afraid to share what they believe has allowed them to succeed is because there isn’t the remotest of possibilities that most of the people with whom they share it will be willing to do anything with what they learn. Most people won’t adopt their beliefs, preferring instead to retain their own scarcity mindset. Nor will they take the necessary actions, preferring to stay within the comfortable bounds that they’ve established for themselves.Most of the people who hear what the successful believes led to their success won’t believe it’s unique or interesting enough to be the root cause of their success.The secret reason the most successful people share their secrets to success is because nothing that leads to success is any great secret.last_img read more

Over 140 animals found dead in flood-hit Kaziranga National Park in Assam

first_imgThe second wave of floods in Assam has inundated 80 per cent of the 481 sq km area of the famed Kaziranga National Park (KNP) and claimed the lives of over 140 animals, including seven rhinos.Since August 10, seven rhinos, 122 swamp deer, two elephants, three wild boars, two hog deer, three sambhar deer, one buffalo and one porcupine died, KNP Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Rohini Ballav Saikia said here on Thursday. “Carcasses are being recovered daily,” he said.Out of the seven rhinos, six drowned while the other died of natural causes. Water of the Brahmaputra entered the KNP, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, through river Difloo on August 10, the DFO said.Also Read Floods continue to wreak havoc  Intensified water patrolling was on by the park guards, task force, protection force along with those from NGOs, Wildlife Trust of India and forest department employees for rescuing, recovering and making assessment of the species trapped or dead in the KNP, Mr. Sakia said.At present, animals in the KNP are moving in search of food available on both sides of the NH-37 and the adjacent tea gardens towards the higher altitudes of Karbi Anglong district, the official said.Forest department and security personnel are fixing hoardings, posters, banners to restrict speed limit of vehicles on the NH-37 passing through the park between 20 to 40 km per hour, the DFO said.last_img read more

Canada’s World-Renowned Freshwater Research Facility Saved by New Management

first_imgThe Experimental Lakes Area (ELA), Canada’s flagship environmental research center that has been under threat of closure for 2 years, has found a savior. The ELA will leave government hands and will now be managed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), a Winnipeg-based think tank. The 1 April announcement guarantees that the 46-year-old field site in northwestern Ontario will survive, at least for another 5 years, and will expand its research focus beyond that of the Canadian government’s mandate.The deal will hopefully bring the ELA some “stability,” says Diane Orihel, a freshwater ecologist who since mid-2012 has led a campaign to save the facility. The campaign began after the Canadian government pulled the project’s funding and handed pink slips to its team of 16 scientists and technicians. Last year, the lab, which conducts experiments in a system of 58 lakes, was saved from the bulldozers by a stopgap payment of $2 million from the provincial government of Ontario. Now, IISD has a chance to rebuild the ELA after years of neglect by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Orihel says.The ELA, the world’s only facility where researchers can intentionally poison whole lakes to monitor ecosystem effects, has an impressive research record: Its scientists were the first to find evidence for acid rain, and to fully diagnose the effects of pollutants such as mercury, phosphate, and synthetic hormones on aquatic life. IISD President Scott Vaughan tells ScienceInsider that he intends to build upon this past research, while looking to expand the scope of the facility’s science to investigate the effects of micropollutants and climate change on aquatic systems.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The takeover deal relies on agreements between Ontario and IISD, between Canada and IISD, and a third trilateral Canada-Ontario-IISD pact to ensure that all long-term data and physical samples from the facility are available to future researchers. Access to these freshwater data sets—some of the longest and most thorough in the world—will keep scientists coming back to ELA, backers say.But the fresh management brings new challenges. The provincial government of Ontario has pledged $2 million a year for 5 years to cover operating costs and long-term monitoring. These funds will be topped up by Manitoba and Canada, which have promised $900,000 over 6 years and $250,000 per year for 4 years, respectively. But the provincial and federal moneys will not fund scientific experiments, which were previously funded through government grants. ELA scientists will now need to partner with universities to apply for those national grants. And beyond the next 5 years, the IISD will need to embark on a major fundraising campaign to keep the ELA open. “That’s an ambitious amount of money to raise,” Orihel says.The next challenge will be to staff the facility. Vaughan says his goal is to invite back the scientists who previously worked at the ELA and offer them a job with IISD. That will be difficult, Orihel says: “The science team has been withering away for a number of years; as people retire they haven’t been replaced … some scientists got frustrated and took other positions.” She adds that the ELA is not just buildings and lakes, it is people, and the government should have done more to transition that previous team to a new operator.If a new team can be found in time, the takeover comes just in time for experiments at the facility to resume in the spring. And this summer, after consultations with interested university-based scientists, the new research plan will be announced.Brokering the deal has been a long haul, Vaughan says. IISD members are “incredibly grateful” to the scientists, including Orihel, who worked to save the ELA before IISD stepped in. He adds: “They are an impressive group of committed scientists.”last_img read more
