Twelve Real Madrid players are in FIFA limbo on 30-J

first_imgIt was something that had been disturbing clubs, footballers and agents, and that Emilio García Silvero, legal director of FIFA, has highlighted more. “FIFA cannot extend contracts beyond June 30, but the transfer windows are not going to be the same and players will not be able to be registered. The market does not open on July 1 “, he said in Game Time. García Silvero gave more details, again not very reassuring due to the restrictions of the regulations: “If a loan ends on June 30, the player should theoretically return to his club but the enrollment window would not be open and the record would not be processed.” FIFA is recommending extensions to end the season, but cannot guarantee that this will be done: It will depend, in addition to the will of those involved, on the labor regulations of each country. Of course, if the contractual extensions were not given, the footballers could not be enrolled in another team.Future plans: sales, transfers …In the worst case scenario, 12 Madrid footballers would stay in no man’s land, a hypothesis everyone involved believes will not occur. They hope that some solution will be found to avoid this extreme. Areola, who wants to continue, should return to PSG. Luca Zidane and Borja Mayoral, currently on loan at Racing and Levante, they end their relationship with Real Madrid and, as the movements have not started, they would have no token. Odriozola would return from Bayern, as Achraf from Dortmund after two courses, Vallejo from Granada, Reguilón from Sevilla, Ceballos from Arsenal, Odegaard de la Real, Kubo from Mallorca and Óscar Rodríguez, two seasons later, from Leganés.When normality returns, for the majority, a definitive sale or a new assignment will be sought. Achraf and Odegaard, If they see it convenient, they have a place in 2020-21. Lunin, also, it has many options of being the second goalkeeper. AND Kubo, As he confessed this Sunday in AS, he sees himself with options and potential to follow that path. The rest is between very complicated and impossible. The coronavirus, like society in general, is going to change the world of soccer. What is still far from being known is how much and how. One of the problems derived from this complex situation is what will happen to the transferred or those who end their contract on June 30, with 12 cases in Real Madrid: Luca Zidane, Lunin, Odriozola, Achraf, Vallejo, Reguilón, Ceballos, Odegaard, Take Kubo, Óscar Rodríguez, Borja Mayoral and Areola. AS has told that in Spain the parties have begun to look for a solution with enlargement, but, as it usually happens with the RFEF, LaLiga and the AFE involved, it will not be easy. last_img read more

Nehuén Pérez to the expectation

first_imgAtlético could have to determine at the finish of this course, when it arrives, the stage with Nehuén. One is to search for one other switch in order that he can proceed progressing or to discover a place for him in the squad and provides out one other of the defenders. Sure Philip and Lovely arrived final summer season, the second shouldn’t be completely satisfied along with his little prominence up to now and the postponement of the Eurocup to 2021 It locations the subsequent season as key, though his departure appears unlikely. SavicAt 29, he may search for a final large contract and depart money available for Atlético. Giménez shouldn’t be in the showcase. On this case, Nehuén occupies a non-community place, like Felipe, Lodi and Arias, which cowl the most quota, though the departure of the Colombian would open the doorways.No minutes with Simeone in his half season as rojiblancoNehuén Pérez value Atlético 2.5 million in July 2018 (Though he didn’t be part of the rojiblanco membership till January 2019, when his task led to Argentinos Juniors, from the place he was signed). He arrived at Atlético certified by the specialists as Greatest central defender of the South American U-20, Argentina captain with 18 years and surrounded by reward. Management, seriousness, aerial play, ball exit … However with Simeone he had no probability. Zero minutes, zero alternatives. The Argentine exercised at his command in Cerro for half a yr and didn’t make his debut and virtually not even be a part of the substitutes’ bench. Solely in two was it, two out of twelve doable. Hanging was the Atlético-Celta from April 13 of final yr. Simeone ran out of central groups, solely unpublished Nehuén remained, however as a substitute of the Argentine, the coach determined to guess on Montero and by Toni Moya, who’s a midfielder however had performed nice central minutes in the preseason, so Nehuén continued to zero. Have the Athletic a coveted piece in the upcoming markets: Nehuén Pérez (19 years previous that can be 20 this June). The central, is on mortgage in the Portuguese Famalicaosure, I used to be about to signal for Ajax for 25 million, as you’ll have recognized ACE, earlier than soccer stopped due to the coronavirus. Now he’s coming again It’s now not so clear that Nehuén packs his method to the Netherlands. The Argentine shouldn’t be solely a bit of the future for the nice golf equipment of Europe, but additionally for Atlético himself, to whom the coronavirus disaster and the consequent ERTE that he requested to face it trigger that the signings by Atlético are few and only a few. And though Atlético already has 4 assure facilities in its squad, it’s looking the market (Diego Carlos, Tah, Demiral…) one thing you have already got at residence. Nehuén.The Argentine is shining on his mortgage at Famalicao, the place He has stood out for his management and hierarchy regardless of his youth. An undisputed pure chief in the staff led by João Pedro Sousa and that he enormously observed his absence throughout the dispute of the Olympic in February, U23, the place he was indeniable in the closing victory of Argentina regardless of being 4 years youthful than a number of of his colleagues and rivals. In the Portuguese league he has performed 16 matches, all as a starter, to which he provides two in the cup. And it’s that the Argentine is squeezing to the most his switch in his first alternative in Europe. A efficiency that has sparked the curiosity of a number of main golf equipment, resembling Ajax, who see the 19-year-old as a center-back with a few years forward.last_img read more

Thomas targets big leap – Triple jumper sets sights on 15m, 4x400m

first_imgTake one look at Jamaican Olympic triple jump hopeful Shanieka Thomas and her potential is obvious. At six-foot tall and 145 pounds, she is built almost exactly like world record holder Inessa Kravets. Thomas, 11th at the 2015 World Championships, knows the similarity and hopes one day to match the Ukrainian’s fine achievements. Kravets set the record – 15.50 metres – at the 1995 Worlds and took gold as well at the 1996 Olympics. “The fact that the world record holder has the same build as me is encouragement to show I’m able to achieve the world record or even more,” she observed after a training session at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies last week. “A lot of people don’t remember that the world record holder has a really slim build,” she pinpointed. Thomas, a three-time US collegiate champion at San Diego State University, left California to train at Mona last season. “Everyone was asking me, ‘Why come back to Jamaica and there’s not a lot of people doing well in the field events?’,” she recalled. “It’s hard to have a lot of people doing well in the field events if nobody actually comes home to show the talent the coaches have here,” she analysed. “So it’s a big jump, and it was risky at first, but I like the transition because it’s been going well.” With astute advice from her coach, Kerry-Lee Ricketts, the former Vere Technical High School student-athlete qualified for the Worlds at the last opportunity with a winning 14.23-metre jump at the NACAC Championships in Costa Rica. Now their goal is to make her faster and stronger. MORE SPEED “This year,” she revealed, “we’re focusing on getting more speed down the runway, as well as strengthening, making sure I’m more powerful.” Now almost 24, Thomas has great respect for retired 2005 World Champion Trecia Smith and her former Vere Technical teammate, Kimberly Williams, who in 2014 succeeded Smith as Commonwealth champion. Mention of Smith’s national record of 15.16 metres and Thomas glows. “That’s a really big performance, and I would love to jump at least 15.01,” she envisioned, “just to be over the mark.” During her San Diego years, the 2008 Carifta Games Under-17 champion ran relays on a regular basis. Now she dreams of running the 4×400 in black green and gold. “Every season, I contemplate doing the 400, but when I start thinking about the training for the 400,” she shudders, “I’m like, no. I’m going to stick with the triple jump.” She is encouraged by the relay running of World and Olympic triple jump men’s champion Christian Taylor at the 2014 World Relays. “If it’s not the Olympics or the World Championships,” she said, “if it’s even like the Pan-Am Games or something like that, I want to run a 4×4 … for Jamaica.” Runs over 350 and 400 metres are part of her background training for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and she says “you’ll maybe see me on the 4×4 for UWI for the preparation towards Rio”.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: TOO BUSY TO EAT

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: This week has been an eventful one.In the past 7 days, I have finished up my job, started full time at my Personal Training business, moved location to Optimal Fitness, all while moving house… and we have begun building our new house……….phew!!!!It would be easy to assume that my eating these past few weeks has been pretty crappy, but you know what happens when you assume something. During times of increased pressure and stress, mistakes in our dietary habits can easily happen.You don’t have time to prepare meals. You are snowed under at work and haven’t time for lunch. You are rushing from place to place and grabbing the quickest thing that comes to hand and those things are usually junk.Is it any wonder that some of us wake up one morning and wonder what the hell happened?How do we get around this problem? How do we make better choices when you are tight for time and finding it hard to think ahead?Here’s a few things that I did over the last few weeks that help me to stay on track and keep mistakes to a minimum.1: I got up earlyWhen you know you are going to have a busy day ahead of you, setting the alarm to go off half an hour earlier than usual means you can get up and prepare yourself a big breakfast.This isn’t anything new. Our mothers have been telling you this for years and mammies know best. By eating a balanced breakfast not only are you are curbing hunger for a few hours, you are also helping your concentration levels and because your satiety levels are increased the likelihood of reaching for something at the till is greatly reduced.2: I reduced my carbohydrate intake.My training was all over the place because of different projects pulling me from pillar to post.Carbs are a fuel source for our body; if the body is idle it doesn’t need as much fuel. Reducing your intake of carbs to mainly around training times means your body will use them for energy and you won’t have excess in your system that can be stored as fat. 3: I increased my intake of vegetables.When you take something out you simply cannot leave a void.Increasing your intake of vegetables with every meal will help keep you feeling fuller for longer during and after meals and because vegetables have very few calories, you don’t have to worry about how much you eat.4: I snacked on fruit and nutsWhen you are in a hurry you always end up reaching for the quick fix food choices.Keeping portions of fruit and nuts at hand means you will always have a quick and portable snack at hand.Portion sizes for nuts are a small palm-full or a thumb length of them (not the whole bag).The reduction of carbs means that our fat intake will have to increase to keep energy levels up; snacking on nuts can help with this.5: I ate protein with every meal.This should be a staple of every diet no matter what the goal is.Protein helps with satiety levels and will keep you fuller for longer and because it is so satisfying it is very hard to over eat, you are getting calorie control without even knowing it.Protein is also needed for maintenance of and increasing muscle mass, this is not a bad thing.The more muscle you have the more calories your burn at rest.You are basically turning your body into a fat burning machine; pass the chicken ☺These are some basic tips that you can use when you are busy and find it hard to pre-prepare your meals in advance. They should help you keep on track.#TrainSmartIf you have any question on this article or for getting a tailored program to help you reach your goals, please contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Personal-Training-and-Performance/120518884715118* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Personal Training and PerformanceEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: TOO BUSY TO EAT was last modified: May 19th, 2014 by John2Share 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:emmet rushefitness columnlast_img read more

South Africa pilots National Health

first_img23 March 2012 Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has identified 10 districts in the country for the much-awaited pilot of South Africa’s National Health Insurance (NHI), which will be phased in from 1 April. Making the announcement in Pretoria on Thursday, Motsoaledi said the NHI pilots would focus on the most vulnerable sections of society across the country, reduce high maternal and child mortality through district-based health interventions, and strengthen the performance of the public health system in readiness for the full roll-out of NHI.Assessing the effectiveness of the NHI package The pilots will further assess whether the NHI’s health service package, primary health care teams and strengthened referral system will improve access to quality health services, particularly in rural and previously disadvantaged areas of the country. The objectives of the pilots include testing the ability of the districts to assume greater responsibilities under the NHI, and to assess usage patterns, costs and affordability of implementing a PHC service package.10 districts, one extra in KwaZulu-Natal The districts are: OR Tambo (Eastern Cape), Gert Sibande (Mpumalanga province), Vhembe (Limpopo province), Pixley ka Seme (Northern Cape), Eden (Western Cape), Dr K Kaunda (North West), Thabo Mofutsanyane (Free State) and Tshwane (Gauteng). Due to high population numbers and a high disease burden, two districts have been identified in KwaZulu-Natal – uMzinyathi and uMgungundlovu. However, the province has added a third district, Amajuba, and will be using its own funds to carry out the pilot. The selection of the districts was based on a range of indicators, including socio-economic indicators, health service performance, and financial and resource management.Department ‘ready for the roll-out’ On financing the pilots, Motsoaledi said this was part of an ongoing engagement between the Department of Health and the National Treasury, which has allocated R1-billion for the project. An optimistic Motsoaledi said the department was ready for the roll-out of the pilot and would be visiting all the identified districts, where he would be interacting with traditional leaders, church leaders, nurses and doctors to explain the projects ahead of the April launch. He will also be meeting with medical practitioners from each district, to ask them to assist in the NHI clinics for a few hours each week, for which they would be paid.

Apple wants you to pay big for their smart speaker

first_imgRelated Posts Cate Lawrence Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces As part of yesterday’s WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC) Google launched their foray into home connectivity with the HomePad called by Apple CEO Tim Cook, “breakthrough home speaker with amazing sound and incredible intelligence that will reinvent home audio.”Don’t overlook the last word, in his statement, despite the desire some will have to group HomePad with voice activatedAmazon Echo and Google Home, the product really belongs in a separate category, and here’s why.It’s about sound, not just smarts The HomePod is a 7-inch tall smart speaker covered in a “seamless 3D mesh” fabric It contains a four-inch subwoofer According to Apple it ” uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, distortion‑free sound.” This includes “seven beamforming tweeters” that possess spatial awareness and direct the sound beams throughout the room. It automatically analyzes the acoustics, adjusting the sound based on the speaker’s location, and steers the music in the optimal direction. According to Tim Cook: “Just like with portable music, we want to reinvent home music.”If we position the product as a smart speaker (albeit voice activated) it’s a healthy competitor to the sound audio systems already manufactured by Sonos and Bose and sits in their price range.“ According to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing:“Apple reinvented portable music with iPod and now HomePod will reinvent how we enjoy music wirelessly throughout our homes. HomePod packs powerful speaker technology, Siri intelligence and wireless access to the entire Apple Music library into a beautiful speaker that is less than 7 inches tall, can rock most any room with distortion-free music and be a helpful assistant around your home.” IYou can also link the device with other HomePods or speakers in the house that are AirPlay 2-compatible to get surround sound.It’s Apple-priceyWith Google Home retailing for $129 and Amazon Echo: $179, Apple’s HomePod is an outlier priced at $349, making it less compelling to those who either already own a smart home assistant or consider buying one in the future. Whilst many may have grown up with an iPod, iPhone or MacBook, affordability matters, and beyond this wedded to the cult of Mac, people won’t automatically turn to Apple when there are products like Alexa and Siri that are already enmeshed in popular culture. Even if you don’t own one, most people have seen the ads and know what they can do.See also: Apple’s HomeKit gets big upgrade at WWDC16HomePod is to be launched in December in the UK, US, and Australia, followed by more countries in 2018. Notably, Samsung subsidiary Harman International is intending to launch its own speaker this year in partnership with Microsoft.   The speaker will be controlled by Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana and will enable a range of tasks including playing music, managing calendars and accessing news, similar to the functions possible on Amazon and Google’s devices. It’ll also come with Skype integration, allowing people to make phone calls to other Skype-enabled devices.  This growing trend makes it easy to envisage a connected home where voice activation matters more than a screen interface.This growing trend makes it easy to envisage a connected home where voice activation matters more than a screen interface. But in an era where people still compromise sound quality for convenience (who hasn’t listened to music on their phone for ease of access in public or even whilst sitting in bed?) Apple’s going to need a lot more than a fancy speaker to take down the successes already enjoyed by Amazon and Google Home. C’mon Apple, why don’t you really show us what Siri can do?

Khan died of injuries on chest, abdomen

first_imgDairy farmer Pehlu Khan, who was beaten up by a mob of cow vigilantes at Behror in Alwar district last week, died of serious injuries on his chest and lower abdomen, the autopsy report has revealed in its preliminary findings.The 55-year-old farmer from Nuh in Haryana sustained internal injuries on his lungs, while his ribs were broken and blood clots were found near his heart, stated the post-mortem report prepared by a four-member team of doctors and medical jurists. “It appears prima facie that Pehlu Khan died of internal injuries and heavy bleeding. The medical team has asked for viscera analysis for submitting its final report,” Alwar superintendent of police Rahul Prakash told The Hindu on Friday.The three accused — Vipin Yadav, Ravindra Yadav and Kalu Ram Yadav — who were arrested on Wednesday on the basis of video footage of the incident, were produced before the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate in Behror on the expiry of their one-day police remand. The court sent them to judicial custody for 14 days.Hunt on for 10 moreMr. Prakash said the police had identified 10 more accused persons in the case after establishing their presence on the spot from the video footage circulated on social media. Their names have been added to the FIR registered initially against six suspects on charge of murder and other offences. Three special teams of police officers were searching for the accused, who had fled their homes, and were conducting raids at their suspected hideouts, said the Superintendent of Police.Civil rights groups have sought immediate intervention of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to stop the “lawlessness and free run” given to cow vigilantes allegedly with the support of many people in high places.Asking whether the law and order machinery had been handed over by the police to the cow protection vigilante groups, the People’s Union for Civil Liberties said if this was not stopped, lawlessness would prevail on the streets and the State’s economic foundation would be attacked.Demands of activistsIn a memorandum submitted to Ms. Raje, PUCL State president Kavita Srivastava and other activists demanded immediate arrest of all attackers, suspension of Behror Station House Officer and resignation of Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria for “openly glorifying and lauding the criminals”.last_img read more
