Betis wants to advance their planning, as in 18-19

first_imgLaLiga Santander Betis knows that the accounts will be tighter than last summer and that is why it is already contemplating movements that may prevent the prices of some players from skyrocketing in the market. In the past summer, the club already had difficulties in streamlining efforts and had to pay high amounts for some footballers who were at the expense of the sports management. Cases such as those of Borja Iglesias or Álex Moreno, arrived almost at the beginning of the league, greatly affected the rest of the operations in Heliópolis.Precisely the structure of the next sports management is another of the dilemmas in the Baetic entity, that contemplates changes that could give a boost to this area after the departure of Lorenzo Serra Ferrer and the drawbacks that are already arising under this model in which there is no dominant figure at the controls of planning. Both the vice president José Miguel López Catalán and the coordinator of the technical secretariat, Alexis Trujillo, They took the greatest weight in the last two transfer markets and it is expected that there will be variations in the club in the face of their plans for the immediate future. * Data updated as of March 26, 2020center_img Betis does not want to wait until the end of this campaign to adjust certain plans for its next project. With the European banknote converted into an almost utopian objective, the entity is aware that it will have to further adjust its financial accounts in order to revolutionize its workforce again. “There are already many advanced things,” said the club’s corporate general manager, Federico Martínez Feria, in a recent interview with the official media.In this sense, a certain parallel is sought to what was achieved two years ago, when in planning for 2018-2019 the club managed to tie several reinforcements before the summer market arrived. Pieces such as Canales, Pau López or Inui became early signings upon termination of the contract with their respective clubs and after negotiations executed in advance.last_img read more

We’ve been able to thrive under a certain amount of chaos at some points. The good thing about us is we’ve got better throughout the course of seasons and we’ve peaked at the right time. We’re hoping that it’s not any different.”LeBron James refused to address the meeting, saying “I don’t want to talk about it” three times.James enters the matchup with the Spurs needing seven points to become the seventh player in league history with 30,000.Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue spoke during the meeting, which took place at the team’s training facility in Independence, Ohio.Lue has decided not to make any changes to his lineup or rotations in hopes that his experienced team — Cleveland has the league’s oldest roster — will figure things out.Until then, Lue hopes that venting their concerns will help the Cavaliers, who have been blown out three times in the past two weeks.“We’ve got to do something about it,” he said. “We’re doing a lot of talking, but we’ve got to play better. We’ve got to execute better offensively, we’ve got to execute better defensively. We’ve got to be better collectively. Everyone has to be better. We’ve been saying that, but we’re taking the necessary steps to do that.”Love played just three minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Thunder because of an illness. He went home and then missed Sunday’s practice, but Lue dismissed Love’s absence as an issue.“It’s not about one person, it’s about all of us,” he said. “If the training staff says Kevin is sick and he’s out, he’s sick and he’s out. I don’t think anybody on our team is a doctor, none of the players, so you can’t speak for what the training staff says. Of course, throughout the course of the season he’s human, everyone is human and there’s going to be other guys that are going to get sick and be down now, too.“We’ve just got to move forward, move past that and we’ve got to try to get on track as far as winning basketball games.” FILE – In this Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers players, from left, LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, JR Smith and Jae Crowder take a break during a review in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.

For me, the thing I’ve always done is kept my mouth shut, I continue to work hard and try to do best for the Cavs. That’s all I can do tonight and moving forward these last 35, 40 games and overall just try to help this team.”While Love wants to move on from the team’s latest turbulence, there may be some unresolved issues.When the team arrived at San Antonio’s AT&T Center, Love was the first player off the bus and he walked into the arena by himself wearing headphones and carrying a coffee cup. His teammates trailed in behind him.Although Love is averaging 18.6 points and 9.4 rebounds, there always seems to be a sense that he should be doing more. He’s been the scapegoat before, so the latest uproar surrounding the team doesn’t surprise him.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

KYB Challenges Cuttington to Establish More Colleges

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Last Saturday’s speaker at Cuttington University’s 53rd Commencement Convocation, Dr. Kenneth Y. Best (KYB), has challenged CU Administration to redouble her efforts to help that university forge ahead to establish more colleges in strategic disciplines.This, he believes, would  ensure that Liberia takes the great leap forward in agriculture, agro-industries, business, industry, manufacturing and technology.He spoke on the theme, “Redeeming Liberia for Liberians,” to the over 500 graduates, their parents, well-wishers and an array of government officials as well as members of the Clergy attending the ceremony.According to Dr. Best Cuttington should lead the way to revive Liberia’s vanishing culture by encouraging and enabling parents and the schools to teach their children to speak Liberian languages, and learn Liberian history and Liberian culture.Cuttington, he said, must train historians and people of letters, who write and publish books and literature for our own academic requirements from kindergarten to university level, and put Liberia on the world literary map.“In my humble view, the priority issue that outweighs anything on the long laundry list of problems to fix Liberia is our Education System,” said Dr. Best.According to him, Liberia once had many strong academic institutions—the College of West Africa, which trained most Liberian leasers, St. Theresa Convent, St. Patrick’s, St. John’s, the Lutheran Training Institute, Bishop Ferguson High and the Booker Washington Institute.Most of these schools were established my missionaries and many of the country’s luminaries on the national and world stage passed through those halls of learning and went forth into the world well prepared.Unfortunately, Dr. Best said, the sheen of academic excellence began to fade once the missionaries left, and now many of those once famous schools “are on life support with crumbling and inadequate structures, lack of instructional materials and, most serious of all, critical shortage of qualified teachers and under-compensation of qualified ones.“Many of our schools are overcrowded, lack books, laboratories, libraries and other learning materials,  drinking water, toilets, recreational facilities,” Dr. Best observed.Another sad aspect he  observed on the education shelf, is that those young children who are not in school can be found on the streets, selling cold water, candy, etc. or in the markets and down waterside being breadwinners at age seven and up.“Tens of thousands of our young people are loitering and languishing with no means of an education or skills training.”The Commencement Speaker  then called on the government to join forces with private citizens and willing  partners to raise the funds needed to begin the work of building the country’s academic system from the foundation to make up the time lost by the youth during the civil war and as a result of our foolhardy neglect.Yes, we can do this, he insisted.  “We have the abilities and the intellect to design an education system that produces youth, men and women who love and fear God, love and support one another, are passionate about and committed to Liberia and to our families; an education system that imparts  not only knowledge and skills, but also high moral values, good character, respect for the rule of law,  work ethic, professionalism and integrity, a love for learning, critical thinking and the development of an inquiring mind that knows how to ask critical questions and work to find the answers.”last_img read more

2 years jail for man who robbed former reporter

first_imgA 30-year-old man was today sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for robbing a former INews reporter.Albert DefreitasAlbert Defreitas, 30, of Leopold Street, Georgetown, was on trial before Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.He was accused of breaking into the reporter’s car in 2017 and carting off with articles value $550,000.Defreitas had initially pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on January 31, 2017 at Parade Street, Georgetown, he stole a quantity of articles and cash.The prosecution contended that the vehicle was parked while the reporter and her fiancé were conducting a pre-wedding photo-shoot at the Georgetown Marriott Hotel, a short distance away.Nonetheless, after the incident, Defreitas attempted to sell a laptop which was stolen from the car, but the prospective buyer, a woman, cancelled the transaction after she became suspicious of the actions of Defreitas. Instead, she contacted the Police, allowing for ranks to intercept the suspect, who was nabbed with the stolen items in his possession.last_img read more

GoFundMe campaign for victim in last week’s collision raises 2½ times it’s goal – in two days

first_imgShe says the family is incredibly grateful from the 38 people who have donated so far, and that they are leaning on each other for support.“We’re going to stay until we know he’s out of danger … We’re hoping and praying, and just saying, ‘You know what? Uncle Willie is going to be alright.’”The accident Willie was involved in happened last Thursday night – the other driver was treated at the scene with non-life-threatening injuries. Last week, Willie Lepine was in a car accident that left him in such critical condition that he had to be flown to Vancouver General Hospital – he sustained broken ribs, back, neck, and punctured lungs, among other injuries.On Monday, his niece Riley Lepine started a GoFundMe campaign for Willie asking for $3,000 to cover the costs associated with his stay in hospital – including a leave of absence from work, the costs of accommodation for his son and his son’s mother who are in Vancouver with him, and other costs.Today, that GoFundMe campaign reached $7,500 raised in donations – more than 2 and a half times it’s original goal – not only that, but within just two days of being started.- Advertisement -“He’s got a lot of good friends, and we have a very large family that’s trying to support us here,” said Willie’s sister, Gloria Lepine. “It’s very expensive in Vancouver and it’s been a little bit of a challenge, so we’re really happy and pleased that we’ve been able to get some financial support from our family and friends.”Gloria describes her brother as a fun-loving man, saying he cares deeply about his family and friends.“All out of our young kids are kind of distraught right now because it’s Uncle Willie who plays with them, loves them, and just let’s them be loud and crazy.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Juventus appoint former AC Milan manager Allegri as Conte’s replacement

first_img1 Juventus have appointed Massimiliano Allegri as their new coach.The Serie A champions moved quickly to replace Antonio Conte after his surprise decision to stand down on Tuesday.Allegri had been out of a job since being dismissed by AC Milan in January, with the Rossoneri in the midst of a nightmare season when they trailed Juve by as many as 30 points.The difficult campaign at Milan has not damaged the coaching prospects of Allegri, who joined the San Siro outfit in 2010 after two successful seasons in charge of Cagliari.The Tuscan-born tactician led the Rossoneri to the scudetto and the Italian Supercup in 2010/11, his first season in charge, and was voted by his peers as 2011’s Serie A coach of the Year.Conte joined Juve from Siena in 2011 and led the Turin outfit to a third consecutive title in the 2013/14 campaign, the first time the club have achieved the feat since a five-season title run in the 1930s.A former Juve midfielder, Conte also guided the side to a record 102 points last season to become the first team in Italy to break the 100-points mark.

UCLA quarterback Neuheisel returns to coach

first_imgStill, he seemed banished from the college game. Branded a cheat. “Slick Rick” suddenly a college football outcast. Now, Guerrero has tabbed him to succeed Karl Dorrell. At first blush, this appears to go against that mandate of integrity Guerrero demanded when he came here six years ago. Only Neuheisel knows exactly what he’s getting into. Understands that if he doesn’t get it right here, there will be no more second chances. Understands how things operate under Guerrero, and almost like the rebellious teenager who privately yearns for parental direction, welcomes a strong hand. “I firmly believe he embraces this and looks forward to being in an environment built on that premise,” Guerrero said. “All our coaches understand this, all of them get it, and we’re glad Rick has an opportunity to come back and be a part of that culture. “I think he’s much wiser, much more mature. I don’t think it’s going to be an issue at all at UCLA.” Neuheisel said all the right things in a Saturday conference call, taking full responsibility for past misdeeds, pledging to walk the straight and narrow. “I’m committed to making sure that stuff never happens and believe we can do things in exactly the right way, in exactly a first-class way,” Neuheisel said. “I’m obligated and committed to making sure that I don’t tarnish the great name of UCLA.” If you trust that Guerrero has his department properly aligned, that he will keep a watchful eye over Neuheisel, then this should be a hire for UCLA fans to celebrate. Neuheisel was at UCLA when it was winning 10 games a year, winning Rose Bowls, going mano-a-mano against USC. He believes in UCLA, values it. Believes it should, and can be, a national player. Believes this is a great job. Something Guerrero’s job search sadly proved, not everyone does. He will not be daunted by the national powerhouse Pete Carroll has built at USC. Will not hesitate to recruit head-to-head. “I admire what he’s built,” Neuheisel said. “It’s up to us at UCLA now to become the type of rival that when USC and UCLA square off, it’s the game of the year. “We need to get into that arena. We need that game to be a big decider in the national picture on a yearly basis.” There are similarities between Carroll and Neuheisel. Both were hired after lengthy searches; USC athletic director Mike Garrett took three weeks to find Carroll, and he was also turned away by Oregon’s Mike Bellotti. Both arrived after disappointments at their last head-coaching jobs. Both are high-energy, personable and eager to prove their doubters wrong. “Rick has paid a tremendous price,” said Dick Tomey, the former Arizona coach now at San Jose State. “I think Rick has understood the things he did that weren’t deemed proper. He’s a great person and a terrific coach. “He’s somebody determined to prove himself. He knows he has to overcome this stigma, and that’s going to be a great motivator.” Neuheisel said he has learned much from his past problems. From overzealous recruiting to too much reliance on the passing game. And has learned talk is the easy part. “There’s the old adage that talk is cheap,” he said. “You have to walk the walk. I am committed to making sure we do this 100percent the right way.” So he said his first goal is to convince defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker to remain. Walker was also interviewed for the head UCLA job and naturally must be disappointed. He has an offer to become Washington’s defensive coordinator. He should politely turn it down. He’s been here two years, begun to build something and should see it through. He has a growing reputation as a recruiter. Another year or two, and he could be one of the hottest head-coaching prospects in the country. Tyrone Willingham is in trouble at Washington. He goes up there, and he could be fired in a year. Neuheisel spent the past three years with the Baltimore Ravens. His r sum is full. He has charisma. He has what UCLA was searching for. “He brings an energy, enthusiasm and a swagger that we needed,” Guerrero said. And you need to trust Guerrero on this.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The question isn’t whether you trust new UCLA head football coach Rick Neuheisel, it’s whether you trust UCLA to keep him in line. And you should. Trust that the athletic department is on solid footing with athletic director Dan Guerrero. That a foundation bigger than any one coach is entrenched. That Guerrero and UCLA offer enough leadership to keep all – even the formerly wayward – in line. Because there really isn’t any question Neuheisel can coach. That he’s a proven entity. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonIf not for his history of running afoul of the rules, he’d just about be the perfect hire. He has a presence about him. He is bright, articulate, comfortable in front of the media. Has head-coaching success at a pair of major college football programs. Reeks confidence. Is a former Bruin player and assistant coach. But there is that one little thing, which is why some will find this a difficult hire to embrace. He was guilty of numerous secondary NCAA recruiting violations. And he has not always proven forthcoming, as when he lied about interviewing with the San Francisco 49ers, and initially, betting in that infamous NCAA Tournament pool. He was fired at Washington, ostensibly for that tournament pool, although he later won a $4.5million wrongful termination suit. last_img read more
