Almeria achieved in Lugo the biggest win of its history in LaLiga at home

first_imgThe fans of the Almeria They did not have so much fun watching their team play, which reacted after the bad start of 2019. The rojiblancos deployed a great game in Lugo showing themselves lethal on the offensive plane and achieving a historic victory. Not surprisingly, it is the biggest win in its history at home in the twenty seasons that militates in the LaLiga (the last 18, consecutively). There is only a similar precedent -identical- in the course 18-19, when the Almeria, under the acronym of the CF and with Quique Hernández on the bench, they beat Sestao 0-4 on day 16. That December 16, 1995, Milinkovic left with a triplet in 33 minutes (24 ‘, 39’ and 57 ‘), joining Roberto Martínes party (67′). This weekend Darwin, with a double Tie and Vada they also left their stamp on the history of the Indian club, who has only won in those two games with four goals away from home. As visitors, the UDA starred in a little hand against Barcelona B and precisely also in Lugo, although the goal difference was not four goals, since Barcelona B materialized four and Lugo three. Both meetings were from the 12-13 season (days 1 and 38), a campaign in which Almeria also made four goals in Santander (3-4, 16th date). The other two times in which the rojiblancos married poker outside their stadium was on April 2, 2006 against Levante (2-4) and on April 19, 2008 at Sánchez Pizjuán (1-4). The last is the biggest win of Almeria in the First Division.Counting both home and foreign meetings, the jackpot takes that 6-0 to Xerez, with the UDA playing the permanence on the 38th day in its first course in the LaLiga under its new denomination. That May 31, 2003, Juan Rojas’ stand was a party, with the doublets of Francisco, Bilic and Ortiz. Almeria also achieved four goals difference was in the 12-13 season, with a 4-0 to Guadalajara (fifth day), and a 5-1 to Sabadell (twenty fifth). A course before, another 4-0 to Guadalajara in the penultimate meeting of the first round.The 0-4 in the Anxo Carro also serves for José María Gutiérrez finally set the goal to zero away from home, being the second time he succeeds by counting 2-0 against Numancia. In the previous seven meetings with the UD Almería, the Madrid coach had seen how his team had received a dozen goals, worrying him of the conceded goals. The goal to zero in lucenses lands must be a turning point for the most top scorer team in the Second Division.last_img read more

No compensation for festive season

first_imgWCD flooding Villagers on the West Coast of Demerara who were affected by mass flooding back in March were expecting to be compensated for their losses for the festive season but this never materialised despite Government’s promises.After confirmation by the regional officials that no assistance was given thus far, Guyana Times spoke to some of the affected persons and moreover those who suffered.Karamchand Singh, whose fence was destroyed by the breach, explained that he was unable to repair the structure due to other losses he suffered when his livestock died in the water during that same period.With constraints to produce an income, he was unable to fix any structures on his property which were damaged. Voicing his concerns along with other persons, he explained that Central Government has made no effort to engage the residents after the flooding.“The only thing we hearing is that they have to do an assessment and they repairing the seawall. We though we getting this help for the Christmas but like we might never get anything. A lot of us had plenty losses during that time and some people still yet to return to where they used to live,” a distraught Singh related.Two houses away from him, a widow with three children explained that her one-flat house was completely inundated during the flooding, and she was left to discard most of the items in her house.“My children clothes and everything get damage. I had to stay by my sister not too far from here till the water go away and by then, the stove and everything damage… We thought we getting something from the Government to help out we but nothing.”Minister of State Joseph Harmon had informed Guyana Times some time ago that his last visit to the area surfaced discussions about the compensations and it was agreed that the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) and the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) of Tuschen-Uitvlugt would make a ‘proper assessment’ of the damages that were cause.However, the Minister of State posited that no response was generated from the NDC and related that he is awaiting that assessment before a decision is taken on the allocation of monies to the hundreds of affected residents.Harmon was quoted as saying, “I haven’t heard back from the CDC or from the NDC Chairman. So I think that is where it is. Once that is done, then we can make a decision where that is concerned.”However, the Tuschen-Uitvlugt NDC Chairman, Vishal Ambedkar told Guyana Times when contacted that the CDC was engaged in separate consultations with a few residents, the Council is unclear as to whether their calculations were ‘comprehensive’ and all the factors surrounding the damages were considered.Since March of this year, waves from the Atlantic Ocean which were generated during a spring tide battered the seawall, leaving several villages completely inundated by the floodwaters. At that time, the waves pummelled 20 feet over the structure.last_img read more

Afghanistan’s wheelchair basketballers shoot to win

first_img0Shares0000A member of Afghanistan’s women’s wheelchair basketball team (in blue) plays against Thailand during a training session in the coastal province of Chonburi © AFP / Lillian SUWANRUMPHABANGKOK, Thailand, Mar 9 – An explosion tore through Nilofar Bayat’s leg when she was just two, but as she spins her wheelchair across a basketball court in Bangkok, the Afghan sportswoman is determined to turn her story from tragedy to triumph.The 23-year-old captain of the Afghan women’s wheelchair basketball team is in Thailand this week in a bid to qualify for the Asian Para Games for the first time. “This is a big job. When I come, I represent Afghanistan in other countries. I want to show that Afghanistan is not just Taliban,” said Bayat, who lost her brother in the same attack that resulted in the loss of her leg.Her life reflects the squad’s remarkable journey against a backdrop of unrelenting violence.When the International Committee for the Red Cross set up its wheelchair basketball programme in Afghanistan some eight years ago, the goal wasn’t to win competitions.Instead, the chief aim was to provide fitness and rehab in a country with a large disabled population — many of whom, like Bayat, lost their limbs in attacks.Other victims have suffered polio, with Afghanistan one of just three nations worldwide where the disease still retains a grip, due to the disruption of health services and the Taliban’s opposition to vaccination.– Out to win –Belying the game’s humble start in Afghanistan, the players are out to show that they can triumph against formidable odds, making their international debut in Indonesia last year.They dominated the field and took home the championship trophy.“Our first tournament was so good, when we played and we got the first position it was amazing for Afghanistan,” Bayat recalled.The Afghan men’s team passed a major milestone in Thailand this week with their first official tournament win outside the country © AFP / Lillian SUWANRUMPHAMeanwhile the Afghan men’s team passed a major milestone in Thailand this week with their first official tournament win outside the country.Jess Markt, an American who coaches the teams, said many players had never even seen a basketball when he first arrived in the country.“And now, several years later we are at the point where we have men’s and women’s national teams that are becoming quite skilled,” he told AFP.“They are getting to the point where they are very competitive with the mid-level international teams around the world.”Introduced to basketball only three years ago, Sayed Wasim Sadat said the sport had lifted his spirits and transformed his life.“I feel lots of changes in my body and my life because now I am so active. Before… I don’t like to go (anywhere),” the 21-year-old said after a friendly warm-up game in a sweltering gym outside Bangkok.“Now I enjoy my life,” he told AFP.– ‘Not for ladies’ –The squads have thrived despite daunting obstacles, including a nerve-wracking security situation that complicates even the seemingly simple act of holding practice sessions.Sixteen years after a US-backed coalition invaded Afghanistan and ousted the Taliban, the militants have escalated their attacks inside the country, leaving residents on edge as the country also grapples with an expanding Islamic State presence.“When we go to basketball, some people say, this sport is not for ladies, just sit at home, stay at home, do the chores, you should marry, you should have your children.” © AFP / Lillian SUWANRUMPHA“The girls are not allowed to go alone anywhere…. This is a big problem, we can’t do our training together,” said Bayat.In fact the trip to Thailand offered them a rare chance to practise together, prompting the team to arrive early in the country so they can hone their skills ahead of the Games.In addition to security fears, some of the players also face resistance from family members who frown on female participation in sports.“When we go to basketball, some people say, this sport is not for ladies, just sit at home, stay at home, do the chores, you should marry, you should have your children,” Bayat said.But each win brings them more acceptance, she said, recalling the reception that greeted the team following their victory in Bali last July.“We went back to Afghanistan, they were so happy, they said excellent, you are good ladies, you are strong, you can be like boys,” she said.“I told them no, I never want to be like a boy, I want to be like myself, I want to be a strong woman.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Exclusive – Carrick warns Man United’s top four rivals: ‘We’re not done yet’

first_imgManchester United midfielder Michael Carrick claims the club’s renaissance is not over yet – with the Red Devils clicking into gear at just the right time.Louis van Gaal’s side have been in the fortunate position of securing points with below-par performances over the last few months, as they target a top three position in the Premier League table.Many fans were unsure how to judge the Dutchman, following his arrival last summer, with supporters pleased to be in the race for a Champions League spot next season, but unhappy about the style of United’s play.Those worries have been put to bed over the last nine days as the club has picked up maximum points with superb showings against Tottenham and Liverpool, two of their main rivals for a place at Europe’s top table.And Carrick admits it took time for the United squad to get to grips with Van Gaal’s requirements.“There has been a process this year,” he told Drivetime. “The manager has come in and he’s got a way of doing things and a way he wants to play.“There was a slight change in the way he wanted us to play, in terms of the tactics and the style of play.“We’ve probably started to fulfil our potential over the last week or so.“The last two performances have been our best of the season probably, especially the Tottenham match and the first half against Liverpool. It’s brilliant for us and helps with confidence.“There’s a good feeling again around the club. The club is going in the right direction, which we always believed it would do.“We always believed we’d get there and I don’t believe we’re finished yet. We believe we’re doing the right things.“There were a few frustrating results along the way that held us back a little bit, but we’ve come through that and we’re looking forward.”last_img read more

Early jail release scrutinized

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsOfficials began reviewing criminal histories of early release candidates about two weeks ago, said Correctional Services Division Chief Marc Klugman. Of the county’s 19,000 inmates, Klugman said 90 percent are charged with felonies and awaiting trial or sentencing before going to state prison. The only inmates considered for early releases involve about 1,500 inmates in the jails on any given day who are charged with misdemeanors or low-level felonies, Klugman said. Over a period of a year, about 50,000 of these inmates are granted early release to reduce jail crowding. “We are not doing a terrible job of selecting who we release because we are primarily releasing people charged with misdemeanors. We are not always right. There is no magic way to determine who is going to commit a violent crime.” Knabe also asked sheriff’s officials and Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen to explore what needs to be done to end the early release program. The supervisors are considering allocating an additional $68 million over three years to reopen more than 4,400 jail beds for a total of 22,000 beds, which is equivalent to the number of beds in the system in 2001 before the early release program began. troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Alarmed that thousands of Los Angeles County inmates have committed crimes following their early release from jail, the Board of Supervisors directed sheriff’s officials Tuesday to reinstitute a policy reviewing prisoners’ criminal histories before they’re freed. In considering which inmates to release early – often after they’ve served just 10 percent of their sentence – the Sheriff’s Department has considered just current charges rather than criminal histories. “Criminal history is an important component of judging whether or not an inmate is eligible for early release,” said David Sommers, an aide to Supervisor Don Knabe. “Until such time as we are able to get the Sheriff’s Department the money it needs to reopen jail beds, we want to do everything possible to allow the sheriff to keep inmates with a violent past and violent record and a history of criminal activity incarcerated if they need to be.” Since Sheriff Lee Baca began releasing inmates early in mid-2002 as a result of budget problems, more than 150,000 inmates have been freed. Of those, nearly 16,000 have been rearrested and charged with new crimes, including 3,472 for violent offenses and 16 for murder. last_img read more

Judge pauses Google lawsuit

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week That transfer has become the pivotal point in the tug-of-war over Lee’s services because Washington honors noncompete agreements while California law doesn’t. Stephen Taylor, an attorney representing Google, tried to sway Whyte from finalizing his ruling. He argued that a stay of the federal case would effectively end the company’s hopes of proving Lee’s noncompete agreement is unenforceable under California law. Michael Bettinger, a Microsoft attorney, disagreed, contending that the merits of California laws governing employment agreements can be weighed by a Washington state judge, who has already heard evidence in a separate lawsuit that Microsoft filed after Lee defected. The Washington judge, Steven Gonzalez, last month issued an order that prevents Lee from doing anything similar to the work he performed at Microsoft, including search technology. Gonzalez’s order remains in effect until the completion of a trial scheduled to begin Jan. 9. If Whyte formalizes his stay of the federal case, the suit would remain on hold until after the Washington trial. By then, less than six months could be remaining on the one-year noncompete agreement that’s handcuffing Lee and Google. SAN JOSE – Google Inc.’s attempt to lift the job restrictions on a top computer engineer lured from rival Microsoft Corp. suffered another blow Friday under a tentative court ruling that would limit the search engine company’s legal options for at least another three months. Lawyers from the high-tech titans appeared in federal court a few hours after Judge Ronald Whyte indicated he will pause a Google lawsuit that seeks to invalidate a noncompete agreement that’s preventing Kai-Fu Lee from carrying out all his duties as the new director of the company’s research center in China. Lee, who received a $10 million compensation package to join Google in July, signed the noncompete agreement five years ago shortly after taking a top executive position at Microsoft. As soon as he took the Google job this year, Lee moved from Microsoft’s home state of Washington to a Silicon Valley home near Google’s Mountain View, Calif.-based headquarters. Whyte, who described the matter as a “tough case,” didn’t indicate when he might issue a definitive ruling. “We are very pleased and encouraged by the tentative ruling,” Microsoft attorney Karl Quackenbush said after Friday’s hearing. Michael Kwun, Google’s chief litigation attorney, said the company still hopes Whyte will change his mind. The struggle over Lee, previously little known outside the high-tech industry, has attracted international interest because the battle has exposed the behind-the-scenes acrimony between two of the world’s most recognized companies. A sworn deposition given by a former Microsoft employee in the Washington state case depicted Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer as an obscenity-spewing leader on a mission to destroy Google – a characterization that Ballmer labeled a gross exaggeration. Other evidence and testimony showed Google hungrily pursuing Lee, who passed along confidential Microsoft documents during the courtship. The tensions have been triggered by Google’s rapid rise in just seven years of existence. The company’s dominance of the lucrative Internet search engine has provided Google’s management with the money to introduce an array of new software, including products that eventually could morph into a threat to Microsoft’s long-running dominance of the personal computer. The battle also has implications beyond Lee. Google intends to hire thousands of new employees during the next few years, so it would like to establish that noncompete agreements aren’t necessarily valid under California law. Microsoft hopes prevailing in the Lee case discourages future raids on its work force, particularly by Google. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
