Oblak, absence in the last session before the final

first_imgThe Uruguayan, therefore, could be new at eleven to the detriment of Savic, a final is a final, and, according to Saul’s words at a press conference, Cholo’s plan against Real Madrid could be in the center of the field. That “will be the battle that can decant the game” and could cause surprises in the eleven rojiblanco as the presence of Llorente, who is strength and muscle and, in addition, made a great game against Barcelona on Thursday, being one of the reasons for the red-and-white comeback against the Catalans. The other two players in doubt of the Atleti, Correa, who received another blow, and Gimenez, falls as a precaution, with some discomfort, they did exercise and made him strong. Oblak’s absence, in principle, should not alarm. On other occasions, when he has had a medical condition, he has managed the training times and then played the matches normally. Atletico exercised in the field of Al-Ahli to prepare the final against Real Madrid tomorrow. And he did it with a notable absence: that of Jan Oblak. The goalkeeper, who was hit by Barça in the semifinal, stayed in the gym doing alternative work. The rojiblancos soccer players did some fut-volleyball before starting the training and, later, an exercise of pass and possession of ball at midfield.last_img read more

UG students call for better facilities

first_imgSeveral students of the University of Guyana on Thursday called on Government to pay attention to the deplorable conditions in which they have to study and learn.They also lambasted the University of Guyana Student Society (UGSS) for not doing enough to lobby for more meaningful infrastructural changes and upgrades to be effected at the Turkeyen Campus.The students contend that since the coalition Government entered office, they have only been promised that the University would be transformed and modernised, with special emphasis being placed on upgrading its edifice and improving the quality of education on offer. “It’s a very sickening situation. The campus buildings need repairs, the classrooms are filthy and not conducive to learning, and most, overcrowded. This situation has to change,” Kamini Persaud, a student of the Faculty of Social Sciences, explained.“We need the administration and Vice Chancellor to place more emphasis on addressing the burning issues that are affecting our stay here. I think that it would take little to nothing out of these big officials to meet with the students to listen to what can be done to make our lives better,” Jermaine Thomas opined.The students have said that while the University has improved its registration process, there is still a lot of confusion when new students attempt to go through the process to become fully registered.“The staff (are) most times rude, petty, and unhelpful. This is another area that I feel like the Vice Chancellor’s attention (should be called to). And maybe the Education Minister can intervene and provide the professionals here with some sort of training and development that would see them treating students and prospective students better,” another student who asked not to be named suggested.The students feel that their elected faculty representatives can do much more to advance these causes, but often become bogged down by their own personal situations and end up frustrated by the non-action by the University on many fronts.“Security is also another issue that I feel strongly they should address. There are a lot of robberies taking place around the Campus, and when you have to leave here late at nights, it does be very scary,” Padma Persaud explained.Students have, for years, been complaining about the deplorable conditions that they have to study in, but only when there are serious protests and lobbying by students is ad hoc work started, and then halted as soon as things return to normalcy.last_img read more

125 workers of 846 likely to be fired

LBI operations shutdown– operations to close by MayThe Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) plans on completely shutting down the La Bonne Intention (LBI)LBI Estate to be completely closed by the end of MaySugar Estate and merging its existing operations with the Enmore Estate by May 31, 2016.This is according to a brief from the Sugar Corporation to Agriculture Minister Noel Holder on the integration of the East Demerara Estates.Some 125 of the 846 workers attached to LBI Estate are at risk of losing their jobs since the functions they currently carry out are expected to be merged with that of Enmore EstateThe statement explained that the LBI section has 846 employees from which 125 are duplicating functions that are currently being undertaken at Enmore. These include personnel in the Mill Dock, Field Workshop, Field Laboratory, Field Office, and Stores.The breakdown shows that 58 persons work in Mill Dock, 38 in Field Workshop and the remaining 29 is split in the Field Laboratory, Field Office, and Stores.Approximately 721 are working at both the LBI and Enmore sections, primarily in harvesting and crop husbandry areas, therefore it is presumed that these jobs are secured.GuySuCo explained that the number of employees who will be fired will be determined after filling existing vacancies at Enmore Estate; however the Guyana Agriculture and General Workers Union (GAWU) and the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE) had expressed concerns that full-time and regular employment will be unavailable.The Sugar Corporation explained to the agriculture minister that the LBI Factory was closed in March 2011 as a part of a plan to integrate the East Demerara Estates into one production entity to optimise the use of the limited pool of labour.The corporation further explained that both estates, at the time, were significantly underutilised as a result of shortage of field labour.It also pointed out that for integration to make sense, the duplicated activities (which were the remaining operations at LBI Estate) would need to be rationalised.GuySuCo said this should have been done since 2011; however because it was not completed, the results were further deterioration in the economics of the East Demerara operations.“The East Demerara Estate’s cost of production increased from US26 to 30 cents per pound prior to the closure of the LBI Factory to US41 cents per pound after the closure, peaking at US54 cents in 2013,” it stated.Consequently, GuySuCo said it behoves the current management to expedite the completion of the integration of the Enmore and LBI Estates to try and prevent sugar production in East Demerara from going out of existence in the near future.The sugar entity also noted that the Mill Dock operation is only necessary where there is a factory and in the case of LBI Estate, its existence is basically useless.“Retaining it for the past 5 years represents keeping approximately 58 persons on the payroll with no productive work to do and transporting canes from the LBI cultivation to the Enmore factory in a more costly manner,” GuySuCo said.Meanwhile, GuySuCo and the two unions are currently in discussion aimed at having the process completed by the end of May, 2016.However, GAWU and NAACIE are completely against this decision and had asserted that GuySuCo had gave its assurance that there would be no closure of any other department after the closure of the factory in 2011.Earlier this year, GuySuCo announced the closure of Wales Estate by yearend and that some of the workers would be deployed to the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate while the others would be redundant.GuySuCo and agriculture ministry are yet to devise a plan for the future of affected sugar workers.Notably, the closures of both estates follow assurances by the government that no estate will be shut down anytime soon.In fact, following the announcement on the closure of Wales Sugar Estate, government promised that no other estate would be shut down.The closures also come on the heels of a multimillion dollar Commission of Inquiry report which advised against the closure of any sugar estate or operation at this time. read more

Lampard’s first win prolonged by Leicester

first_img0Shares0000Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi headed the equaliser at Chelsea© AFP Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 18 -Frank Lampard is still waiting for his first win as Chelsea manager after Wilfred Ndidi gave Leicester a 1-1 draw to spoil the Blues legend’s homecoming on Sunday.Thrashed 4-0 at Manchester United last weekend and beaten on penalties by Liverpool in the European Super Cup on Wednesday, Lampard’s side took an early lead through Mason Mount’s first goal for Chelsea. But Ndidi atoned for the costly mistake that led to Mount’s opener as the Nigeria midfielder headed Leicester’s well deserved second half equaliser.Lampard had been given a thunderous reception in his first game as Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge.Yet the mood was far gloomier by the final whistle after a spluttering display raised the spectre of a potentially difficult season for the returning hero.Lampard, Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer, managed to avoid being the first Blues boss to lose his first two Premier League games in charge since Gianluca Vialli 21 years ago.But on this evidence there is a lot of work for the 41-year-old to do if he is to emulate his 13-year playing spell at Chelsea, which included three Premier League titles and the club’s first Champions League crown.Greeted by a huge flag with the message ‘Frank Lampard’s blue and white army’ and another reading ‘Welcome home Super Frank’, the former England midfielder emerged from the tunnel to cheers and turned to applaud the crowd as they chanted ‘Super Frankie Lampard’.With his former Chelsea team-mate John Terry in the stands to support his old friend, the Blues nearly gave Lampard a dream start in the first minute when Olivier Giroud chested Cesar Azpilicueta’s pass to Pedro and the Spaniard volleyed into the side-netting.Moments later, Mount threatened when he burst through, but the youngster shot too close to Kasper Schmeichel, who did well to block Christian Pulisic’s attempt from the rebound.Mount, a tenacious attacking midfielder in Lampard’s mold, didn’t need to rue that miss for long.The 20-year-old, who impressed while playing for Lampard on loan at second tier Derby last season, opened his Chelsea account in the seventh minute, with a helping hand from Ndidi.– Clinical finish –When Caglar Soyuncu rolled a pass to Ndidi, he dithered on the ball too long and Mount alertly pressured him into conceding possession before sliding a clinical finish past Schmeichel.It was just reward for a blistering start from Chelsea and Lampard celebrated by punching the air in delight.Mount should have doubled Chelsea’s lead when he headed straight at Schmeichel from Pedro’s cross before N’Golo Kante shot wide from Giroud’s flick.But Chelsea couldn’t keep up that ferocious pace and their dip gave Leicester a lifeline they should have taken when James Maddison miscued his pass after dancing around Blues keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga early in the second half.Giroud had started up front instead of Tammy Abraham, who suffered racial abuse on social media after he missed the decisive penalty in that Super Cup loss in Istanbul.But Lampard responded to Chelsea’s loss of control and Giroud’s lack of impact by introducing Abraham on the hour, the young striker greeted warmly by Blues fans after the midweek taunts.It wasn’t enough to swing the momentum back in Chelsea’s favour and Leicester’s dominance was rewarded in the 67th minute.When Maddison swung over a corner, Ndidi rose above Azpilicueta to plant a powerful header past Kepa.Pulisic had made an underwhelming home debut and the former Borussia Dortmund winger was next to be hauled off by Lampard.Maddison wasted a golden chance when he blasted over from close-range, while Jamie Vardy was just off target after breaching Chelsea’s creaky defence with ease.Chelsea were clinging on and it took a fine save from Kepa to deny Youri Tielemans in the final minutes.0Shares0000(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Program to help soldier focus

first_imgA Glendora soldier wounded in the head by a sniper’s bullet nearly a year ago has begun a special class at a community college to boost his cognitive and communicative skills. Jarod Behee, 27, remains a patient at Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation in Pomona, but also has registered at Mount San Antonio College in the acquired brain injury program started in 1988. Students, who pay $3 a semester, are referred from local rehabilitation centers and hospitals along with home and community programs. They transition during the last few weeks of therapy. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event“It’s pretty good I’d have to say, but Marissa might argue with that,” Behee said. His wife Marissa said her husband has attended one class and, while she sees its potential, she said it’s too early to tell what benefit Jarod will get from it. Between 12 and 16 students attend the non-accredited computer classes two hours twice a week. There’s no homework or books, and students come and go according to their lifestyles. “Each person is on individualized program. Instructors help them to learn the program, introduce and monitor their scores,” said Christine Tunstall, instructional specialist in acquired brain injury/speech pathology. Computer software focuses on attention, memory, speed of processing, reasoning and organization. “Jarod will need a lot of working memory skills and also needs sustained attention, which keeps his focus on a task longer than just a few minutes,” Tunstall said. “It’s not unusual for a lot of cognitive recovery to happen once the individual is medically stable. Jarod has had a lot of surgery and a seizure and has been set back medically.” Software programs also work on reasoning and organizational skills. “It’s an area called `executive functions,’ which involve being able to plan a task, carry it out, modify if need be and evaluate it,” Tunstall said. Behee has gone through a series of surgeries since the May 25 incident outside Tikrit when he stood patrol on a roof and was shot in the head by a sniper. He has no memory of the day. His right eye remains closed, but he’s optimistic it will return to normal without surgery. In February, he was recovering from a cranioplasty procedure when doctors placed a metal plate in his head, allowing him to shed the helmet that protected it. Different facets of the community have held fundraisers, including car washes and a golf tournament, to help the Behees financially. Jennifer Patricia Vogel, 19, a teacher at Sonrise Christian Preschool in Covina, organized three car washes to benefit Behee, whose daughter Madison was in her class. Vogel will be honored for her contribution Wednesday at a USA Weekend magazine “Make a Difference Day” luncheon. On Nov. 30, Behee was awarded the Purple Heart with 200 of his family members and friends in attendance. On Tuesday, he’s expected to represent soldiers injured in Iraq during an annual breakfast in Sacramento with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. marianne.love@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2108160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgFather CarrTHE family of Oisin Crawford are devastated and bewildered following his death, their parish priest said todayFr Dan Carr has been comforting Oisin’s parents and brothers at the family home today ahead of the 22-year-old’s funeral in St Johnston tomorrow.Health authorities and Gardai have issued warnings about a deadly ecstasy tablet which is being sold in Donegal. It’s believed Oisin had taken a number of the pills prior to his death at 4.30am on Monday. “I just couldn’t take it in. As the news spread through the people, they just struggled to accept what happened,” said Father Dan Carr.“Numbness has surrounded everyone. It seems to be drug-related.“The use of drugs are readily available here as they would be in cities.Fr Dan Carr has asked people to “avoid drugs forever”. He went on: “I’ve spoken to the Crawford family and they are absolutely devastated. Oisin worked with his father in a tyre business in Raphoe. The father and mother are just speechless.“Drugs… are such a problem. Avoid drugs forever. Never touch them. They are too dangerous. I hope this is a wake up call.”Oisin’s wake is continuing at the family home at Whitehill, St Johnston. His funeral is tomorrow (Wednesday) to 11am Mass at St Baithin’s Church in St Johnston, with burial in the adjoining cemetery afterwards.Family flowers only please. Family time on the morning of the funeral.Simon Lynch, 22, a friend of Oisin’s, remains very ill at Letterkenny General Hospital.
