Lights and shadows of rivals First in Second Division B

first_img90 + 3 ‘2-1 Final. Hem caigut to Johan Cruyff competint molt bé i mereixent més. Barça B has remuntat the goal d’Adri Diaz to the second part and supports the three points.# BadalonaÉsFutur– CF Badalona (@CF_Badalona) January 15, 2020Recreativo 1 – San Fernando 3 (the ‘Recre’, Osasuna’s rival)Having the baton is not always synonymous with triumph. Let them tell the Recreativo, who endorsed the rival goal without any success. San Fernando came out with more intensity and picked up the ball from the rival net up to twice in the first ten minutes. As soon as the referee kicks the starter, Francis Ferron opened the marker. In the 6 ‘, it was Gabi Ramos the one in charge of extending distances. The New Columbian despaired, aware that one more day would not take the necessary step to approach the upper part. It wouldn’t be for not trying. From 0-2, the locals would shoot a total of 21 times between in and out and barely conceded opportunities. Maybe the goal of Francis Ferron in 25 ‘it was too much punishment. Chuli, Alberto Quiles and Rivero They did not have the same efficacy. Alone Isi Ros, in the second half, he managed to change the locker of the Huelva team. Let it serve as a lesson: before Osasuna they will have to leave with the five senses …Badajoz 2 – Cartagena 1 (Badajoz, rival of Eibar)The Second Division B day left light and shadow. While some accused the tiredness, others took advantage of the rebuilding of the successes achieved days ago. Badajoz is a great example of this because, unlike others, the game against Cartagena was even more important that of Las Palmas or the future against Eibar. The Carthaginian team, the undisputed leader during the first round, is undoubtedly one of the rivals to beat Badajoz with the goal of being first and having a double chance in the Playoff. Therefore, the duel meant much more than three points. I knew it Pablo Vazquez, which ahead of theirs at 13 minutes of the game. Elady put the boards in the 24 ‘, in what was a snap for Nafti’s. There was still one more target, Vázquez’s second to add a golden triumph. The Cup, next goal. Next week, Eight Second Division B clubs will live the dream of receiving LaLiga Santander teams in their respective stadiums. At stake there will not only be a ticket for the round of 16, but the illusion of cities not accustomed to playing elite matches. Before all this, they have to do their homework in their groups and continue fighting to assault, sooner rather than later, professional football. After playing the Copa del Rey last weekend, they had to make an extra effort to dispute the postponed duels. Some of them have paid with defeat.Unionistas 1 – Barakaldo 0 (Unionistas, Real Madrid rival)Unionists still sweet and already threatens Real Madrid. It is not yet confirmed that the qualifying round will be played in Las Pistas, but if the club’s intention is finally fulfilled, those of Zidane await a deafening atmosphere. Despite being played on Wednesday, the unconditional ones did not miss the rhythm of the flag movement. But football doesn’t always smile at them. The Barakaldo started better and a fantastic hand of Mario Fernandez He prevented them from getting ahead. The charro team was improving, with Oscar Gonzalez as an offensive protagonist and Galician as author of poisoned centers. Little by little they took control, but the goal still didn’t come. Helped the red to Olaizola for a hard foul on Álvaro Romero and, above all, the entrance of Guille Andrés four minutes from the end. The attacker scored the only goal of the match, which causes the Unionists out of the descent after stormy months. Madrid is warned: his rival is in a state of grace.Ibiza 1 – Las Palmas 0 (Ibiza, rival of Barcelona)Ibiza continues to party in a week dreamed for the entity. First with the victory on penalties against Albacete; then with the raffle of Cup that framed him with the Barcelona; and, finally, with a new triumph that allows him to step on his heels to Atlético Baleares and to the subsidiary of Atlético de Madrid. It was at the expense of Las Palmas B in a match that had a single color. The home team carried the weight of the game, he did not receive a single shot on goal and his opponent only connected a shot off throughout the 90 minutes. Before Barça, of course, he will have to be more effective. It wasn’t until the 60th minute when Kwasi Sibo opened the scoring, after dozens of unsuccessful attacks. Mariano He headed, but he was ahead, and Ángel Rodado missed a penalty in the first bars. Ibiza takes the prize of three points with lights and shadows: Missed right, but the defensive flame does not go out.Amorebieta 1 – Cultural Leonesa 3 (the ‘Cultu’, rival of Atlético)Atlético de Madrid has reason to be worried. The Cultural Leonesa, despite only having four days off after eliminating Huesca in the Cup, He took a blow of authority and won by a goal to three in Amorebieta field. After a first half of scoring, Dioni made the first of the Leon. He found a quick response with so much of Amorrortu, but Eric Montes hit back when the stands were still celebrating their tie. Gudino, near the horn, sentenced the three points after minutes back and forth in which goalkeeper Leandro was erected as savior. The rojiblanco rival stays on the leader’s heels: the Logroñés UD.UD Logroñés 0 – Alavés B 0 (Logroñés, rival of Valencia)The Unión Deportiva Logroñés continues one more day as a leader in Group II of Second Division B, despite the wear of the Cup. Yes, this was in the confrontation with the subsidiary of Alaves, in which he did not once shout that “gooool in Las Gaunas!”. The Logroño team started better, with a couple of dangerous occasions of Rubén. With the passing of the minutes, however, the fatigue was evident on the grass and more after the expulsion of Ñoño in the 74 ‘. Little rest and ten players seemed too much punishment for the first classified, but Minho put on the hero’s cape. With three merit stops, the night was bitter Paulino and closed one more point for his. The red one Rodriguez also helped to live the discount time more enjoyable. “Goalless, wrestling“, defined the club in its social network. In front of Valencia, the first is a challenge and the second, a guarantee. Ebro 1 – Olot 2 (Ebro, Leganés rival)The Ebro began the game with the same morality that led him to overthrow the Ponferradina last weekend. As soon as it started, Lolo was ahead of the Zaragoza team, heading to the bottom of Group III. The joy did not last long, since Palomares, in his own goal, matched the electronic one. On the edge of rest, Baro put the second in the visiting locker. In the second half, the domain was local, partly preparing the clash against Leganés. Stephane Emana was close to turning the scoreboard twice, but he was not sure of goal. The Soler expulsion, ten minutes from the end, he definitely condemned the locals, who continue without too much oxygen. Manolo Sanlúcar, however, showed confidence in his players: “It’s a matter of success.”Barça B 2 – Badalona 1 (Badalona, ​​rival of Granada)All the lights present in the Johan Cruyff pointed to the figure of Quique Setién and the non-presence on the pitch of Riqui Puig, since the arrival of the new technician in dynamics of the first team. But the one who is still in the Cup is the Badalona, ​​who will face Granada, and tried to prove it on the grass. He got it in the first half, thanks to both of Adrián Díaz. Minutes before, Akieme, blaugrana squad, shot at the crossbar and the visiting team forgave a clear chance in the boots of Hugo Esteban. The second part was another story: Collado brushed the goal with a whip to the stick; Monchu celebrated a great goal; Y Dani Morer He left all three points at home with the second. In the end, the visitors pulled strength and pressed for a draw that did not arrive and that condemns Badalona to the bottom. At least, the Cup remains.last_img read more

375 Wales workers not included in Govt’s 50% plan

first_imgSeverance payments…legal challenge yet to be heardWhile thousands of sugar workers attached to the Rose Hall, East Demerara (Enmore) and Skeldon Estates are slated to receive half of their severance payments by the end of this month, 375 workers formerly attached to the Wales Estate are not the beneficiaries of the proposal. This was confirmed by President of the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) on Friday, who said that for months, he has been calling on Government to release funds and payGAWU President Komal Chandthe Wales workers, so they can move on with their lives.Wales ended operations in December 2016 and some 375 workers who refused to take up employment at Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara, remain without severance payments. The matter was taken by GAWU to the High Court in March 2017. Now a little over one month shy of a year, Guyana Times was informed that the matter is likely to come up before a judge by March or early April 2018.As the former employees continue to anticipate their payments, many from Wales and the surrounding communities on the West Bank of Demerara are finding much difficulty in garnering consistent employment since the closure. Many have noted the reduced earnings they have been garnering since losing their jobs one year ago.Some 4000 sugar workers from Enmore, Rose Hall and Skeldon were similarly let go by December 29, 2017. Fearing that they would have suffered a similar fate as Wales, workers attached to Rose Hall staged a protest in Berbice on Tuesday, demanding that they paid their severance packages. This was one of several similar actions planned by workers and their union against the decisions made regarding the sugar industry.Following the protest, Government announced on Wednesday that it will pay 50 per cent of the severance benefits to dismissed sugar workers by the end of this month, a commitment that represented over $2 billion in severance payments.About 850 workers protested the non-payment of millions of dollars, which are collectively owed to them for their years of service given to the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo).Meanwhile, GAWU has registered its disappointment with the Government deferring the full payment of severance. According to the GAWU President, the decision breaches the Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act.“They ought, in the first place, to have a month’s notice after the issue would have been discussed with their union. Having reached that point they (have to) provide the employees with their notices. They ought to get, at the end of the notice, their severance pay. Those people that GuySuCo paid severance to so far, that has been complied with,” Chand observed.last_img read more

Bush immigrant plan draws fire

first_imgAsian-American leaders blasted President George W. Bush’s newest immigration reform plan Wednesday, accusing the White House of tearing families apart with a guest-worker program that prohibits foreigners from bringing family to the U.S. The outcry is part of a mobilization of immigrant-rights groups gearing up to oppose the plan hashed out by the administration and a handful of Republican senators. Under the plan, illegal immigrants would pay $3,500 for a new Z work visa, and pay the same amount to renew it every three years. To apply for a green card, an illegal immigrant would have to leave the country, apply at a U.S. embassy and pay a $10,000 fine. It also would become harder for legal immigrants to bring siblings and parents into the U.S., and new temporary foreign workers would be unable to bring their families. “If the White House proposal becomes reality, it will be nearly the same as the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882,” said Michael Lin, executive director of the Organization of Chinese Americans. The first significant law restricting immigration into the U.S., the Chinese Exclusion Act put a 10-year moratorium on Chinese immigration and placed new restrictions on those who had already entered the country. “It’s hard to believe the White House is contemplating anti-family measures as part of immigration reform,” Lin said, charging the proposal would make it nearly impossible for legal immigrants to sponsor family members for immigration. A White House spokeswoman referred calls about the plan to the Department of Homeland Security, which did not return calls. Eun Sook Lee, executive director of the National Korean American Service and Education Consortium in Los Angeles, called the plan unacceptable. “The White House secret plan is anti-worker and anti-family,” she said. Filipino, Southeast Asian and Vietnamese activists also joined in the attack. One advocate noted that in the case of Vietnamese immigrants, many came as refugees and have waited years to be reunited with family members. “This would undermine Asian-American communities,” said Karen Narasaki, president of the Asian American Justice Center. lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Vassalund has improved me, says Marcelo

first_img“So far so good. Sweden life is very okay with me and the experience over the past three months has been nothing short of brilliant. I have picked so much experience especially learning the European style of play,” the left back noted.He added; “I am still adapting and I am hopeful for the best in the coming days.”Ouma did not play a part in the Harambee Stars 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Ghana last Saturday but played a starring role in Tuesday’s friendly match against Malawi, coming on as a second half substitute to provide the assist for Francis Kahata’s winning goal.Head coach Sebastien Migne was full of praise for the 22-year old and says he might have just pushed himself into a starting role for next month’s third AFCON qualifier against Ethiopia.Harambee Stars wingback Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma prepares to launch a move upfront during the international friendly match against Malawi on September 11. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Against Ghana, I decided to play with Aboud (Omar) and Francis but I always knew his (Ouma’s) abilities. He played very well against Malawi and I know him well because in the India tournament he was among the best players. For sure, he has a chance against Ethiopia,” Migne said.Ouma showed an improved performance against Malawi and a new lease of life for his career that had been threatened by both injury and six-month lull.Assessing himself, the fullback who made his name slotting straight into the Gor Mahia starting team after completing school at Kakamega High says he has vastly improved but has admitted there is still a lot to do.“In Sweden, the demands are huge and the way of play is quite different. In terms of my technical ability, I think I have improved a lot but the journey has just started. They teach you a lot of things there and slowly, I am getting there,” he further added.He also notes that former Vassalund midfielder Eric Johannah who has since moved to the top tier with IF Bromma helped him settle down into life in Stockholm.Harambee Stars wingback Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma attempts to block a pass from teammate Jockins Atudo during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on September 9, 2018.

Since our grounds are not far from each other, he is always ready to assist,” Ouma said of his Harambee Stars teammate.His target is now to follow in the footsteps of the former Mathare United man who spent just a season with Vassalund before making the big break to the top tier.“I would like to follow in his footsteps and make the big break to the top leagues. It is a huge challenge but I am ready to work for it. It’s possible because I know my abilities,” Ouma noted.Vassalund currently top the Second Division Norra Svealand with 52 points, six ahead of second placed Stocksund with six rounds of matches left before the end of the regular season.A win in the play-offs will see them earn promotion to the second tier, and Ouma is confident they can squeeze in to move a division higher.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars wingback Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma prepares to launch a move upfront during the international friendly match against Malawi on September 11, , behind him is fellow wingback Aboud Omar.

CARELESS DRIVING CHARGE QUASHED AFTER MAN ATTENDS BEHAVIOUR COURSE

first_imgA MAN who pleaded guilty to careless driving has had a careless driving charge struck out after attending a driver behaviour course.David Baxter, 23, from Trentagh had fallen asleep at the wheel in Ballybofey last August. His car struck another vehicle in the incident but no-one was seriously hurt.Judge Paul Kelly heard Mr Baxter describe his attendance at the course and how seeing the results of accidents and hearing from a woman who had lost relatives in car crashes had “completely changed” his attitude to driving. Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told the court that he had visited the course on its final day last Saturday and found all six young drivers had “completely embraced” the project.Mr Baxter handed in a certificate to Judge Kelly to show he had completed the four day course.The scheme is a pilot project designed to replace community service orders for drivers who commit less serious driving offences.Mr Baxter said the course had worked for him adding: “It will make me much more careful on the roads.”Judge Kelly told him: “You seem to have engaged in this process and I will strike out the case. The best of luck to you.”CARELESS DRIVING CHARGE QUASHED AFTER MAN ATTENDS BEHAVIOUR COURSE was last modified: October 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:BallybofeyCARELESS DRIVING CHARGE QUASHED AFTER MAN ATTENDS BEHAVIOUR COURSETrentaghlast_img read more
