Raúl looks for a miracle with Castilla in 2020

first_imgRaul face your second calendar year as a coach of Real Madrid Castilla. The white legend has a big challenge with the subsidiary: the promotion to Second, which Castilla does not achieve since 2011-12 season, with Alberto Toril on the bench. You won’t have it easy, since your team closed 2019 at eight points playoff of ascent (with one game less) and only three of the descent. Five wins, seven draws and five losses leave their future in the air, given that the coach’s contract It expires in summer.The IFcome and go have been a constant since the beginning of the course. Castilla hthrashed to good teams like Getafe B (3-0) and Rayo Majadahonda (3-1)but has also fallen defeated before Athletic B (2-0), Racing de Ferrol (1-2), Sporting B (4-2) and Ibiza (1-2). And has conceded 21 goals, almost as many as he has marked (23). But if this Castile is characterized by something, it is by tie: after Melilla (8 games), he is the second team that has finished his appointments most times in tables: seven. Still, Rthere he hopes to follow the trail of Zidane, that by this time of his first season in Castilla he had won eight games (he finished sixth that season, with 58 points). The Castile has the younger template of the category next to Las Palmas Atlético (19 years on average). An incentive for training, but a result level handicap for inexperience The planning of the first staff has hurt the subsidiary: unknowns about him Rodrygo’s future (played against Langreo and Rayo Majadahonda, who scored a goal) and Kubo (played a friendly against Alcorcón) were other inconvenience for Raúl, also stopping the signing of the forward Bell, already agreed.In the goal, Raúl has not had it easy either: Altube has combined the first team with the subsidiary and not regularly. Despite these mismatches, Raúl has won the trust of some of his players, especially César Gelabert, He returned on November 2 after his clavicle injury and is indisputable.The return to activity will be intense: Castilla receives this Sunday at Melilla (11: 30h.), then he will travel on day 8 to Vigo to play his match against Celta B (postponed since December 20 by the alert that Galicia lived) and on January 12 will receive the visit of Las Rozas (12:00).last_img read more

10 Guineans, 1 Ivorian Charged for VR Fraud

first_imgTen Guineans, including two women, and an Ivorian national were on Friday forwarded to the Monrovia City Court in connection with their alleged attempt to register during the ongoing voter registration exercise for the 2017 presidential and legislative elections. They were charged by the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS), formerly the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), with multiple crimes, including possession of valid voter registration cards, illegal resident, election fraud and falsification of Liberian citizenship.If convicted, they face a possible three-year imprisonment and a fine that will be determined by the court.The arrests come amid warning by Liberians about the trucking of foreign nationals into the country by some aspirants to have them registered to vote in their favor in the October elections.Meanwhile, the National Elections Commission (NEC) recently announced that it has registered about a million eligible voters nationwide in the first week of the five-week voter registration exercise that began on February 1.At Friday’s hearing, the alleged fraudsters were remanded at the Monrovia Central Prison, because they could not obtain lawyers to file a bond that would have stopped the court from sending them to prison.Minutes before they were surrendered to the jurisdiction of the court, LIS Commissioner Lemuel Reeves told journalists that most of the voter registration suspects were picked-up by NEC staff at various polling precincts around Monrovia, but two of them, including a new mother, were arrested when they used their voter registration cards as traveling documents to leave the country to enter Guinea.He did not disclose the particular area they were arrested.“Her voter registration card had on it a Liberian name, Amelia Kollie, which she posed to be, rather than a Guinean,” Commission Reeves alleged.The other Guinean who he said was arrested had a voter registration card with the Liberian name Kollie Flomo.“The remaining nine persons, some of them tried using their own Guinean names and posed as Liberian citizens to obtain the voter registration cards fraudulently, before they were arrested by NEC staff,” the LIS boss further explained.According to Reeves, the NEC and the joint security have carried out a series of arrests of aliens around the country, particularly Guineans, trying to obtain voter registration cards.“Some of them have been processed for prosecution at the areas where they were arrested,” Reeves disclosed.However, he could not say exactly how many aliens have been caught in possession of voter registration cards, or how many have been arrested while attempting to register.Commissioner Reeves said none of those arrested, upon interrogation, ever mentioned that a presidential aspirant was behind their actions; and all denied that any aspirant trucked them into Liberia.“When we investigated them, none of them were able to mention the name of any aspirant, maybe for reasons best known to them,” he maintained.“But, we cannot keep them in our prison more the 24 hours statutory period as provided by the law, so we have to forward them for prosecution.“Some of them are residents in the country, but are not eligible to vote in the election. But, they tried to violate the system and to have themselves obtain our voter registration card, which is illegal under our laws.”The LIS boss used the occasion to warn aliens who are considering registering in the ongoing voter registration exercise to desist from doing so.Commissioner Reeves warned aliens in the country to “stay away from the voter registration process or you will be arrested, because we are stepping up security to work closely with the NEC to carry out mass arrests, because it is not good for our electoral process; and it is a very serious offense.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GGMC looking to increase reclamation bonds

first_img…44 acres of mining land restoredAs the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) seeks to intensify land restoration efforts within the local extractive sectors, the body is looking to increase the reclamation bond.Mining Engineer in the Environmental Division within the GGMC, Carlos ToddAt a stakeholder forum seeking to educate partner agencies on land reclamation, Mining Engineer within the Environmental Division at GGMC, Carlos Todd, pointed out that for too long, reclamation has taken a backseat in the mining process. GGMC has embarked on having reclamation mainstreamed into the extractive industry.He noted that the Mining (Amendment) Act makes it mandatory for miners— not the GGMC— to restore lands upon closure of mining sites.Currently, miners are required to put up reclamation bonds— which are used if they fail to adequately restore mining sites at the end of operations.However, Todd noted that the value of the bond needs to be increased.“If there are cases where miners fail to carry out their legal obligation so in that case, GGMC will be forced to use the small bond to make an attempt to fix the area, but we know the bond is not enough at the moment. There are studies being done to come up with some suitable figure, what (amount) should be lodged as the reclamation bond,” he posited.A section of the participants at Tuesday stakeholders’ engagement hosted by GGMC at Herdmanston LodgeAccording to the Mining Engineer, stakeholders need to understand that reclamation is a part of doing business and as such, should be factored into the cost of mining.“We need to have a change in attitude how we conduct the mining process. The cost needs to factor in here. We need to know that if you’re going to factor in a cost for reclamation, then there is some cost in the (mining) process… to reclaim the area” he noted.Apart from land restoration, Todd added too that the GGMC also looks at the reclamation of waterways that were diverted or polluted by mining activities.“This exercise is long overdue. It’s an opportunity to bring awareness to the stakeholders about the importance of reclamation and the need to mainstream reclamation in the mining process… GGMC will be working to ensure we enforce the mining laws and as we go about doing that, we will try to work with miners to provide awareness and to provide education material miners need to help them in the process,” Todd posited.So far, sites at Dakoura, Linden; Olive Creek, Mazaruni; St. Elizabeth, Mahdia; Nooitgedacht, Mahdia; Frenchman, and Kara Kara, Linden, covering some 44 acres or 17 hectares, have been reclaimed during2009-2018. Of these six sites that were restored, two were bauxite sites and the other four were gold mines.According to GGMC Commissioner Newell Dennison, at Tuesday’s stakeholders’ engagement, some $100 million has been spent over the past three years on reclamation activities.He charged the participants to have dialogue and exchange ideas on how they can continue these efforts, noting that “… at the end of the day, the final objective would be as we mine, we reclaim”.“Let us share knowledge and insights, and let us accept that cost of being ignorant and non-responsive to today’s environment needs will the more costly it will be down the road. While we continue with our environmental education and awareness campaign in support of physical reclamation, we must not lose sight of the fact that reclamation is the law,” he added.Further recognising that mining cannot be done without disturbing the environment, the Commissioner noted the recalled criticisms of these efforts. He noted, however, steps taken to restore mined-out sites demonstrate the GGMC’s commitment to give effect to conventions such as the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Convention on Biological Diversity.To this end, Dennison posited that as regulators of the mining sector, they must convert stakeholders who sometimes do not appreciate the positives of compliance with the environmental standards and best practices.“The long term value will outlast, by far, the short-sighted resistance to the calls for a healthier landscape. We, all together, need to minimise and mitigate the impact on our environment for mining and invest in the potential after mining value chain. The health and wellness effect and social impact of mining could be under threat if the attitude in mining undermines the good works on show and/or the economic outlook or the landscape, which could become productive again depending on the kind of reclamation remedy,” the GGMC Head stressed.In its efforts to mainstream mine reclamation into the extractive industry, the GGMC is following a ‘Three Es’ initiative – Education, Encouragement and Enforcement – to engage stakeholders to support miners.The participants at Tuesday’s engagement were from stakeholder agencies such as: the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), the National Mining Syndicate, University of Guyana (UG), the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA) and Natural Resources Ministry, among others.last_img read more

AN POST BOSS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OVER CLOSURE OF DONEGAL POST OFFICES

first_imgThe CEO of An Post is to be asked about the closure of post offices across the country including Laghey and Menalaragh in Co Donegal. Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has confirmed that the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Natural Resources and Agriculture will request the attendance of the Donal Connell to discuss the persistent closures of rural post offices.Senator Ó Domhnaill who is a member of the committee said: “I am anxious to ensure that the Chief Executive of An Post, Donal Connell, comes before the Committee as soon as possible. “There are genuine concerns about the company’s policy to close small rural post offices and the way in which this policy is being executived.“The post offices in Laghey and Meenlaragh were closed over the past number of months without adequate advance notice or local consultation, and this has been devastating for the community,” he said.He added that the impact on communities of losing such a basic amenity is significant.“This is not just about the services that post offices provide; the post office is also focal point of the community. At this time, when rural communities are being targeted for severe cuts to services, many communities feel that the loss of the post office is another nail in the coffin.” AN POST BOSS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OVER CLOSURE OF DONEGAL POST OFFICES was last modified: March 28th, 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:An PostLagheyMeenlaraghlast_img read more

CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S GAA BLOG: RYAN AND ODHRAN WERE STARS OF THE O’DONNELL PARK SHOW

first_imgGoal scorers Odhran MacNiallias open his account for Donegal with a fine goal at the O Donnell Park as he celebrates with Colm Anthony Mc Fadden who got the second goal . Photo By Brian McDaid/CristephIt’s three from three for Donegal in the league and with Jim McGuinness’ men leading the standings, the young leaders on the field of play are making a big impression. Odhran MacNiallais and Ryan McHugh were the stars of the show today as the home team got some measure of revenge against Monaghan for the Ulster Final reverse in Clones last July.MacNiallais got the capacity crowd to their feet early on with a blistering goal; his presence of mind and spatial awareness created the chance and he finished with aplomb. Receiving the ball forty yards from goal, the boisterous Letterkenny support were encouraging him to shoot for a point but he saw space in behind the Monaghan rearguard and once he got past the first tackler with a devastating change of pace, he drove straight for the whites of Rory Beggan’s eyes in goal. The Gaoth Dobhair man added to his tally soon after with a point off that trusty left peg and added a further two scores in the second half to put the seal on a wonderful individual display. He also managed a sublime assist with a cushioned volleyed pass to set substitute Declan Walsh up for the game’s last point. The more we see of MacNiallais, the more he looks like a starter for the big one in Celtic Park on May 25th.Ryan McHugh picked up from where he left off in Salthill three weeks ago, producing another excellent performance both in defence and attack. He made the incisive burst to set Dermot Molloy away in the lead up to the second goal, eventually finished to the net by Colm McFadden. McHugh looked a little out of place during last year’s championship due to his diminutive frame but he’s obviously put in the hard work in the gym since and is well able for the cut and thrust of top level football. Of course the old guard are still making a huge contribution and today was a big test of Jim’s defensive alignment as regards the positioning of Karl Lacey. A centre back for the most part in the McGuinness era, it looks as if he will spend most of his time in the last line of defence this year. Having been assigned marking duties on one of the country’s leading attackers, Conor McManus, today was a good test to see how Lacey is faring back in his former No 2 jersey. While McManus was out in front quite a bit in the first half he rarely got past the Four Masters man and as the game wore on the battle pendulum swung towards Lacey. He produced a brilliant saving block on the goal-line towards the end of the match and thus earned his side a second successive clean sheet.With McManus engaged in his battle with Lacey, attention turned to Monaghan’s newest sharp shooter, Jack McCarron. A nephew of the famous Ray, McCarron has a had a fine season to date and while not as prolific today he did show some glimpses of his talent, the highlight an exquisite point from the wing, kicking across the ball with his favoured left foot and gliding it over Paul Durcan’s crossbar.Around the middle, the powerhouse displays of Martin McElhinney and Rory Kavanagh gave Donegal an excellent platform in the first half and despite leading by six points at half time there was a sense that it should have been even more. Kieran Hughes, the man who tormented the green and gold defence from full forward in last year’s provincial decider, came more into the game in the second half at midfield. It took until the last ten minutes for the hosts to shake off the stubborn Monaghan resistance; Paddy McBrearty’s brace after coming off the bench ensuring there’d be no comeback mounted from the Farney men.Referee Barry Cassidy did his bit in keeping Monaghan in the game with some questionable decisions while he also awarded a yellow card instead of a black to Colin Walshe, after he deliberately dragged down MacNiallais. The Donegal players in general were unhappy with Cassidy, particularly when a high challenge on McHugh went unpunished, with Michael Murphy receiving a yellow for his protestations. Murphy was a bit out of sorts today with both he and Frank McGlynn guilty of some poor distribution. With six points on the board, Donegal are well on their way to promotion and to a league final appearance at Headquarters. Two more wins out their four remaining games should seal the deal but Jim will want to get those victories recorded as quickly as possible so as to allow him to continue re-integrating the likes of McBrearty, Neil Gallagher and the soon to be returning Paddy McGrath and David Walsh into match action and get them up to speed.A stuttering Meath side are the next visitors to the North West with Mac Cumhaill Park playing to host to that clash on Sunday next.O’Donnell Park – and hosts St Eunan’s – were superb today. CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S GAA BLOG: RYAN AND ODHRAN WERE STARS OF THE O’DONNELL PARK SHOW was last modified: March 2nd, 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:donegalletterkennyMonaghanO’Donnell ParkOdhran MacNiallaislast_img read more

NURSE PAULINE HAS MENINGITIS, SAY DOCTORS, BUT SHE HAS ‘SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED’

first_imgNurse Pauline Cafferkey whose family are from Co Donegal.THE condition of nurse Pauline Cafferkey has improved again in hospital, it has been announced.The medic, who is a cousin of soccer star Packie Bonner and has many relations in West Donegal, originally contracted Ebola while volunteering in Sierra Leone last year.Miss Cafferkey, 39, was admitted to the Royal Free Hospital in London earlier this month where she is being treated in an isolation unit. Health officials said however she had been diagnosed with meningitis caused by Ebola and had a “long recovery ahead”.Ms Cafferkey, from South Lanarkshire, contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone.Dr Michael Jacobs, who is treating Ms Cafferkey at the Royal Free Hospital in London, said: “Pauline has become unwell by meningitis caused by the Ebola virus. “But to be very clear about this, she hasn’t been re-infected with the Ebola virus.“This is the original Ebola virus that she had many months ago, which has been lying inside the brain, replicating at a very low level probably, and has now re-emerged to cause this clinical illness of meningitis. And this is obviously a serious thing.”Dr Jacobs said Ms Cafferkey had “became critically ill due to neurological complications from the meningitis” while being treated at the specialist isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital.He added: “I’m really pleased to tell you that in the last few days she’s made a significant improvement. She is much better now.“I think she has a long recovery ahead of her and will be with us for quite a while still.”  NURSE PAULINE HAS MENINGITIS, SAY DOCTORS, BUT SHE HAS ‘SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED’ was last modified: October 21st, 2015 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:donegalebolaillmeningitisPauline Cafferkeylast_img read more
