Lenglet and Sergi Roberto must have been expelled, according to Iturralde

first_imgSánchez Martínez had a job since early in Betis – Barcelona. Barely five minutes of game time had elapsed when the Murcia referee, after a warning from the referee of VAR Del Cerro Grande, He pointed out Lenglet’s penalty for blocking his arm with a shot from Fekir. Channels would transform the maximum penalty, but Iturralde González, arbitration analyst of AS and Carousel, considers that the punishment should have been greater for the Blaugranas. AlsoAS arbitral analyst believes that Sergi Roberto should have seen the second yellow after his entry on Aleñá in the last bars of the first half. The versatile Barça player made a scissor for his former teammate, who had already surpassed him, and Iturralde considered that Sánchez Martínez forgave Roberto’s expulsion. He also added that Fekir could have been kicked out by Seroton Roberto. “It’s red card”, the former colleague told AS, “It is a clear goal opportunity: it is behind the penalty point and is a shot on goal that, if not hit in the hand, goes towards the goal”.center_img Later I would explain this same action in the tuning of the SER chain: “You have to draw an imaginary line of the penalty point backwards. From the penalty point forward it is considered a goal opportunity. From the penalty point behind, it is clear: if there is no hand, where does the ball go?”, Iturralde sentenced.last_img read more

I feel like it saved my life,” Durant said. “It changed my life. It took me out of an environment that I didn’t think I’d ever be out of. I thought I was going to live in Maryland my whole life.“To travel the world and meet different people and go to different arenas and different cities and countries around the world, I’m just forever grateful for this opportunity.“That’s why I love this game.

Farmers, Brokers Want Gov’t to Lift Moratorium on Unprocessed Rubber Exportation

first_imgAs Firestone Rubber Company in Harbel, Margibi County, has resolved to stop doing business with rubber brokers, over 50 brokers and farmers across the country have called on the government to lift the moratorium on the exportation of unprocessed rubber in Liberia. They claimed that the decision by Firestone’s management has serious economic implications on them as the company is the only buyer of rubber from smallholder farmers.It can be recalled that in April last year; the Liberian government enforced Executive Order No. 50 placing a moratorium on the exportation of unprocessed natural rubber to curtail the abuse, misuse, abandonment and theft taking place in the rubber industry.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer this past Monday at the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA), the president of the National Rubber Brokers and Farmers Union of Liberia (NARBFUL), James Saye Kea, said Firestone’s decision is not in the interest of the country’s many farmers and brokers.He stated that his organization is a legal entity established to serve as middle men between farmers and companies in Liberia’s rubber business.Mr. Kea disclosed that though the government decreed the moratorium last year, his union has been in business with Firestone since then.According to him, Firestone management’s decision was prompted by allegations of theft from members of the union.“We understand that the company (Firestone) decided to quit business with us due to their observation of criminal activities in the rubber business. However, this decision by them is not timely as it has the propensity to put us out of business,” he lamented.He denied the allegation of the union’s involvement in criminal acts, adding that mechanisms have been put in place by them to minimize illegal practices.“We have ensured that anyone doing business with us is a registered member of our organization,” he said.Mr. Kea urged the management of Firestone not to insist upon its decision but work with the union to minimize the problem of theft in the rubber industry. He added that the government needs to see reason and lift the ban on the exportation of unprocessed rubber allowing local rubber brokers to remain in business.“The lifting of the moratorium is urgently needed to stop Firestone’s monopoly of the rubber business, as they are presently the nation’s sole buyers. It would help encourage other companies to compete, thus enabling us to earn money to support our families,” Kea observed.When contacted, the Processing Manager of Firestone, Jimmy Hinneh, stated that most rubber farmers in the country have complained about criminal activities in the rubber industry.He alleged that about 30 percent of rubber bought by his company from various brokers was observed to have been stolen. He disclosed that is the reason why they have resolved to buy rubber directly from farmers instead of brokers.Mr. Hinneh said that the company is going to work with the MoA to assess the various farms of smallholder farmers.“The process of assessment will start as soon as rubber farmers enter into a memorandum of understanding with us to do business,” he disclosed.When the Daily Observer contacted the Deputy Minister for Technical Services at the MoA, Dr. Sizi Subah, he could not give government’s clear cut position on the matter.He, however, stated that the decision of Firestone is in line with section 6 of the Executive Order No.50, which ceases brokers’ activities relating to the purchase, sale or trade of unprocessed rubber in the country.He confirmed that his Ministry shall collaborate with Firestone to identify potential farmers to do business with the company.“What we are looking for now is an efficient way to work with the nation’s many smallholders farmers. This will be decided at the next meeting with a subsequent discussion on how to address the issue of theft,” he stated.Meanwhile, a source preferring to remain anonymous told this paper that the situation confronting rubber brokers in the country needs to be approached carefully.According to our source, the situation poses a security threat for the nation as hundreds of smallholder rubbers farmers are left vulnerable as the result of Firestone’s abrupt decision. Our source added that the way forward from this dilemma is for government and Firestone to work with the brokers to address whatever problems are affecting Liberia’s rubber sector.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lack of Market Hinders Gbedin Farmers

first_imgFarmers in Gbedin in Nimba County are complaining about the lack of markets to sell their produce, which they say has been an ongoing problem over the years.They also lack adequate farming implements that could enable them to become more productive and increase their harvestsSpeaking to the Daily Observer in Gbedin Town yesterday, the chairman of the Dokodan Farmers’ Cooperative, Jefferson W. Tokpah, said they need necessary implements to enhance their productivity.He said the farmers cultivate rice and vegetables on 164 hectares (410 acres) of land. “We do this with two power tillers and one rice thresher. We have about 250, 000 kilograms of seed rice since December last year, but we do not have buyers. We harvest three times annually and because we do not have buyers, we are unable to produce more,” said Tokpah.An organization called Africa Rice asked them to produce 250, 000 kilograms of seed rice, and although they produced the order, African Rice has never returned to purchase the rice, a disappointed Tokpah narrated. According to Chairman Tokpah, there are about 97 farmers, including 37 females who are unhappy because there is no one to buy their harvests.This reporter visited the Gbedin Camp and saw lots of farming activities going on, including farmers drying rice while others were harvesting and threshing rice.Gbedin is where the World Food Program used to obtain clean rice for distribution to schools across Nimba County, but the rice mill provided by WFP is broken, according to the farmers.Presently, the dam used to supply water during the dry season is also broken, causing flooding in the community when it rains heavily.Meanwhile, the farmers are appealing to the Ministry of Agriculture and other interested wholesale rice dealers to work with them to get their stock of rice sold in order to keep them in business.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

We’ve got a fantastic start so far. Over 150 people in the first 20 minutes, and the line up goes outside the building.”A group of applicants said they were expecting it to be busy, and were just getting to the front of the line after an hour of waiting.So this is just a part of a line to get into the Site C job fair. pic.twitter.com/hW6DU13QmgAdvertisement “The line ups were over three hours long yesterday, so we’re trying to accommodate people and put them through a little bit quicker,” he said, saying they weren’t done in Dawson Creek until 7:20 p.m., when the fair actually closes at 7 p.m.He adds that they are looking for many different skilled workers, including equipment operators, carpenters, surveyors, HSC staff, and administration, just to name a few.

But Dawson Creek really showed us, in the larger communities, its busy all day. So we expect it to be busy all day, until 7.”Jim Schilling with Peace River Hydro Partners is one of the team members looking through resumes today, and they took a note from yesterday’s amount of traffic to bring more additions to consult with applicants.Advertisementcenter_img Next week, BC Hydro continues along their way through Northern B.C. to scout out potential employees.

Exclusive – Moyes backs Welbeck and says he would not have sold him to Arsenal

first_imgDavid Moyes has backed Danny Welbeck to continue the excellent start he has made to his Arsenal career – and claims he would not have let him leave Manchester United.The striker completed a £16million switch to north London on transfer deadline day, and has scored five goals in 12 games for the Gunners.At the time of the deal, Louis van Gaal insisted the striker was not up to the standards of Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney and, ahead of Saturday’s clash with Arsene Wenger’s side at the Emirates, he was in no mood to change that opinion.“He takes all the benefit from playing every week,” said the Dutchman. “That was a question mark with Manchester United. It’s good to see he’s doing what I thought. He could have also played for Manchester United, but we decided he could go and he has taken the benefit of it.“He does very well at Arsenal. I cannot judge him so good, but now I shall see him and I shall judge him. But I don’t think it is so important how I judge him because he is now playing for Arsenal.”But Moyes, who was replaced by Van Gaal in the summer following a troubled season at the Old Trafford helm, insists he’s not at all shocked by how well Welbeck has done since leaving the north-west.“I’m not surprised one bit,” the new Real Sociedad manager told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “He was an excellent player for me last year. If you look, we played him in nearly all the big games and I thought an awful lot of him.“The hardest thing Danny had to deal with is he had Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney in front of him. So, from that point of view, he had to dislodge those players to get into the side and it was always going to be hard for him to do that.“It’s been a really good move for Danny. He’s a really good lad and player, maybe it will help him. He’s gone away, he’s scoring for England as well and I think he’s getting more respect for what he’s doing.”As for Van Gaal opting to allow the 23-year-old to leave, Moyes added: “You make your own decisions. Every manager is entitled to their own opinion, but it wouldn’t necessarily be mine.”You can listen to live exclusive national radio commentary of Arsenal v Manchester United from 5:30pm only on talkSPORTlast_img read more

Woods roars into FedEx Cup lead

first_img“If you wanted to win this tournament, you had to make putts,” Woods said. “And I just happened to make them today.” The 63 matched Woods’ lowest final round to win, and he finished at 22-under 262 to break by five shots the 72-hole record at Cog Hill first set by Scott Hoch in 2001 and matched by Woods two years later. And while his 60th tour victory surprised him, the amazement wore off when he was reminded that it was only 13 months ago at the Buick Open that everyone made a fuss out of Woods winning No. 50. Baddeley gave him a good chase until he ran out of birdies on the back nine and settled for a 66. Stricker was tied for the lead until his 3-iron clipped a tree and came up well short on the 12th, leading to a bogey no one could afford. He wound up with a 68 to finish alone in third, enough for him to move up to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings. “There isn’t a lot you can do,” Stricker said. “I would have had to shoot 63 today to beat him. When you see him ahead of us making the birdies and hearing the roars, you know that he’s on a roll and not making many mistakes. It’s tough.” It also might be tough to catch him in the FedEx Cup, which concludes next week at the Tour Championship. Woods goes to East Lake in Atlanta with a 3,133-point lead over Stricker and a 4,120-point margin over Phil Mickelson, who decided not to play this week. Mickelson, the Deutsche Bank Championship winner Monday, will have to win to have any hopes of capturing the FedEx Cup and the $10 million prize. If Stricker does not win at East Lake, Woods could win the cup by finishing second. Only two other players – Rory Sabbatini and K.J. Choi – have a mathematical chance. All that mattered at the moment was winning at Cog Hill for the fourth time. It was Woods’ sixth victory of the year, and the $1.26 million pushed him over $9 million for the fourth time in his career. The biggest mystery about the Tour Championship is the course on which they play. The tour left a two-page notice on players’ lockers Sunday morning saying that record heat has severely damaged the greens at East Lake, forcing officials to cancel the pro-am round Wednesday and ban players from so much as setting foot on the greens until the first round Thursday. Stewart Cink, Tim Clark and Camilo Villegas all finished in the top 10 and earned enough points to move into the top 30 in the playoff standings and qualify for the Tour Championship. The 30th spot went to British Open champion Padraig Harrington, who took this week off to recharge and was prepared to play a European tour event if he got bumped out. Luke Donald tried to recover from a 76 in the opening round, but his bogey-free 65 on Sunday left him two shots away from the points he needed to finish 30th. Also getting knocked out of the top 30 were Jerry Kelly and Aaron Oberholser, who withdrew with hand and wrist injuries and said he would not have been able to play the Tour Championship even if he had made it. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Doug Ferguson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LEMONT, Ill. – Playing next to Tiger Woods for two days was daunting enough. It was when Steve Stricker watched him from 200 yards away on an elevated tee that he realized how tough it would be to beat him Sunday in the BMW Championship. He arrived on the par-3 12th tee in time to see Woods, in his customary black pants and red shirt, rap a putt that traveled from one side of the green to the other until the ball disappeared after a 50-foot journey and gave Woods an unlikely birdie. “It looked like he looked back to make sure that we were watching him make birdie,” Stricker said. Not so, Woods replied. “I didn’t do a Sergio,” Woods said with a smile, referring to when Sergio Garcia stared him down at nearby Medinah eight years ago in a fruitless chase at the PGA Championship. Woods only cared about making birdies, and he got enough of them at Cog Hill to close with an 8-under 63 for a two-shot victory over Aaron Baddeley. Along the way, Woods shattered the tournament scoring record, collected his 60th career victory on the PGA Tour and moved atop the standings in the FedEx Cup with one week remaining. last_img read more

DONEGAL DOCTORS NOW CHARGING MEDICAL CARD HOLDERS FOR ROUTINE HEALTH CHECKS

first_imgTHOUSANDS of medical card holders across Donegal are now being forced to pay for routine procedures when they visit their doctors.A list of routine health checks including blood tests, ear syringing and having blood pressure tests taken will now cost the unemployed and the elderly €20 a time.The HSE have agreed a list of payment fees for various procedures with GPs which have now been introduced in recent days. Up until now most of these procedures were completely free for medical card holders under the medical card scheme.But now if patients request a certain procedure, they will have to pay out of their own pocket for it.As well as blood tests, having a 24 hour blood pressure monitor fitted will set a patient back €50.Doctors are now being forced to charge the fees after the Government cut back on their fees in a number of other areas. However the new charges are causing uproar amongst the elderly and those who simply cannot afford the charges.There is now a fear that people will simply not bother getting various routine but necessary procedures done such as regular blood pressure monitoring because of the charges.One GP told donegaldaily that he was not charging patients for routine procedures but he knew many who have already been forced to.“It has been introduced with very little fuss in recent days. There is an actual charge-sheet with a standard charge for various procedures.“I am trying to desist from using it or from charging my patients. How can I turn around and tell an elderly patient that I am charging him €20 for something today that was free under the medical card scheme a month ago? “Having said that I know some of my colleagues are being forced to charge for these services because of recent cut-backs.“People think doctors are very well-of but we run a business just like everyone else. WE have a lot of overheads too,” he said.EndsDONEGAL DOCTORS NOW CHARGING MEDICAL CARD HOLDERS FOR ROUTINE HEALTH CHECKS was last modified: April 21st, 2011 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:Medical cardpaylast_img read more
