* Data updated as of March 21, 2020 The planning of the next season of Seville will be marked again, one more summer, by the players who did not enter Lopetegui’s plans almost a year ago and who have far from earned their return to Nervión. In fact, of the eleven players that Sevilla transferred to other clubs between the summer and winter markets, in which some even had to change clubs, only Carlos Fernandez It has been revalued and has shown a place in the squad next year.Carlos Fernández’s performance in Granada is the exception of Sevilla’s loan. The youth squad has even knocked on the national team’s doors and in the unlikely event that he was not available in Nervión, he could at least leave a juicy transfer in the coffers of the club. Is he opposite case to players like Kjaer, Arana or Amadou, forced to change their destination in winter for the little role they had in their first assignments. Arana worries less since his transfer to Atlético Mineiro, after failing in Atalanta, concludes in 2021. Kjaer also left Atalanta in January heading for a Milan that has a purchase option on him. Amadou, the first signing of the 18-19 season, failed at Norwich and ended up in a Leganes, in which he has only played one game. Leganés in fact has been one of the clubs that has taken Sevilla out of the most problems this year, since the loan of Amadou It was the fourth that came from Nervión after Juan Soriano, Roque Mesa and Bryan Gil. The goalkeeper has not managed to unseat Cuéllar despite the injuries of his rival in the position, Roque Mesa has not come close to the level that made Sevilla bet on him while Bryan Gil is acting repellant. By age and projection, the situation of the latter is not a problem for Sevilla.Aleix Vidal in Alavés and Gnagnon in Rennes have not been short of minutes, although they have not shown to be at the level required to belong to a squad that fights for the Champions League. Sergio Rico, despite his repeated substitutions, does have options to stay at PSG but the French will want to lower the purchase option that Sevilla put on his loan. And finally, Corchia continues to extend at Espanyol his ordeal of knee injuries, which has prevented him from playing since the end of November.The balance is clear: Sevilla gave up eleven players, ten will return in the summer, unless one of the purchase options on them is exercised, and only one has used the season to knock on the door of the club that owns its federal rights. Monchi already affirmed last summer that his planning had lacked things because he had not been able to get economic performance from the players that were not available. The problem of a year ago aims to become a problem in a few months. LaLiga Santander

“The attorney general’s office has suspended… the president of the football federation, his deputy, the federation’s secretary general, the head of goalkeepers and the head of provincial coordinators,” Jamshid Rasuli, spokesman for the attorney general, told AFP.“To conduct the investigations thoroughly, collect evidence and to ensure justice, the team of prosecutors decided to suspend these people,” he said, adding that all the suspended officials were male.The Guardian cited what it described as senior figures associated with the women’s team who said the abuse had taken place in Afghanistan, including at the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) headquarters, and at a training camp in Jordan last February.The story quoted former captain Khalida Popal — who fled the country after receiving death threats and has spoken out previously about the discrimination women face in Afghanistan — as saying male officials were “coercing” female players.Popal welcomed news of the suspensions, tweeting: “If we all stand together and raise our voice and become the #Voice4voiceless no one would be dare to hurt innocents. #Football is not abuse.”Safi Sadab, an AFF spokesman, told AFP the federation was ready to “cooperate with the investigation”.Football’s world governing body FIFA has also said it was looking into the claims, while the Danish sportswear company Hummel announced it had cancelled a sponsorship deal with the team due to the allegations.Afghanistan has made strides to promote female football — as well as the national side, four years ago it launched its first all-women’s football league that ran in parallel with the men’s.In 2017 the female teams were sidelined by a lack of funding.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ghani has ordered a “thorough investigation” into the claims of abuse by male officials against members of the women’s team © AFP/File / WAKIL KOHSARKABUL, Afghanistan, Dec 9 – Afghanistan has suspended five officials including the president of the country’s football federation over allegations of sexual and physical abuse against the national women’s team, officials said Sunday.The decision comes days after President Ashraf Ghani ordered the attorney general to conduct a “thorough investigation” into what he called “shocking” claims of abuse by male officials against members of the women’s team — allegations that were first reported in Britain’s Guardian newspaper.
RTE man Aengus MacGriannaWell known RTE newsreader Aengus MacGrianna will perform the master of ceremonies at this year’s Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award.Aengus, who has longstanding connections with Donegal, is best known as one of the most popular anchor newsreaders on RTÉ One’s Six One and 9 O’Clock News bulletins.This year’s award ceremony will take place at a gala function in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel on Friday 25 September which will be the centre piece in a weekend of events marking the life and times of the late Tip O’Neill. This year’s ceremony will also be attended by Minister for Diaspora Affairs Mr. Jimmy Deenihan T.D. who will present the 2015 Irish Diaspora Award to US based philanthropist Ms. Loretta Brennan Glucksman.Ms. Glucksman, has been involved in philanthropic endeavours for more than two decades, focusing on education, the arts, healthcare and peace initiatives in both the United States and Ireland, a passion she shared with her late husband Lew Glucksman. Her grandfather, David Brennan, hailed from Inishowen fishing port, Greencastle and her grandmother was Alice Moore from Co Leitrim.Ms Glucksman is the Chairman Emeritus of the American Ireland Fund (AIF), where she served as its Chairman for 18 years before stepping down in December 2013.The Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award was initiated in 2012 as a means of commemorating the centenary of the birth of the late Tip O’Neill an illustrious grandson of Donegal emigrants and an eminent member of the Irish Diaspora. This award has gained momentum since the inaugural ceremony in 2012 and has become a highlight of the Donegal calendar.

Nicholas Crossan chair of the Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award Committee believes that commemorating Tip O’Neill in this way is a fitting tribute to a man who contributed greatly not only to political life in the US but also in Ireland.“Tip O’Neill’s contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of Ireland has been well documented. His role in bringing peace to our island and advocating on behalf of the Irish people on the international stage makes him one of the most well known and loved members of the Irish Diaspora. I think this award is a fitting tribute to a man who made such a remarkable contribution to our country”.Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Ciaran Brogan said “Donegal County Council has been to the fore in reaching out to our global community especially through our Donegal Diaspora project and the Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award is one way of recognising the massive contribution that members of the Irish Diaspora has made throughout the world”.Other events over the weekend will include the Tip O’Neill Diaspora Lecture with Prof Rónan Fanning at 11am on Saturday, September 26 in the Sliabh Sneacht Centre, Drumfries and the Inishowen Schools Diaspora competition.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“Real estate is at a premium, vacant lots are disappearing faster and faster, mansions are ruining neighborhoods,” LaBonge said at a news conference at Mulholland Overlook above Hollywood. “No one saw this coming. Now it’s a fever – and it has the potential to ruin L.A.” In recent years, builders have expanded or replaced ranch homes and bungalows with larger homes that cover much of the property. Critics complain the giant houses destroy the character of existing neighborhoods. The Building Industry Association-Greater Los Angeles/Ventura Chapter did not respond to numerous calls. “See those, how they don’t fit into the scope of the neighborhood? They’re too huge on lots too small,” said Orrin Feldman, vice president of the Hollywood Hills West Neighborhood Council, pointing to homes covering entire lots south of Mulholland Drive. “I am angry: Something has to be done. Overbuilding is being done in the name of profits, and neighborhoods are getting hurt.” “All the neighborhoods are being wiped out by these mansions,” added Robert Nudelman, director of preservation for Hollywood Heritage. “They’re like cancer – once they get going, they keep growing … and there goes the historic neighborhood.” The Los Angeles municipal code currently allows for a 7,020-square-foot house to be shoehorned onto a 5,000-square-foot lot. Councilwoman Wendy Greuel last year pushed through a measure limiting the size of homes that can be built in the Sunland-Tujunga area after residents complained about the problem of homes dwarfing lots. Under the limits there, homes cannot cover the entire lot. As an example, an 8,000-square-foot lot would accommodate a home of up to 2,400 square feet. email@example.com (818) 713-3730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Behemoth homes stuffed onto undersized lots could ruin Los Angeles, which is why the city needs an ordinance to stop the practice, a city official said Monday. To stem the “mansionization” of hillsides and historic neighborhoods, Councilman Tom LaBonge called for citywide regulations to limit home sizes based on lot dimensions and existing homes in the neighborhood. LaBonge, who represents an eastern portion of the San Fernando Valley, will introduce a motion today to direct city planners to establish appropriate size-to-lot ratios for single-family homes. A citywide ordinance – led by a patchwork of interim home-size measures in Sunland-Tujunga and other communities – could be enacted within a year.

29 January 2013 South Africa, despite being the last country to launch the Campaign for Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMA), is set on using every opportunity to achieve the targets set out by the strategy, says President Jacob Zuma. “South Africa is committed to doing everything we can to reduce maternal and child mortality and to improve the lives of women and children, both in our country and on the continent,” Zuma said on Monday. Speaking at a high level meeting of the CARMMA on the sidelines of the African Union Summit underway in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Zuma said the government had developed a national dashboard to monitor progress in the implementation of the strategy. With the aid of government’s development partners, the country’s provinces have been supported to strengthen their plans to achieve the goals of CARMMA. CARMMA aims to reduce the number of women who die as a result of childbearing, during pregnancy or within 42 days of delivery or termination of pregnancy, among others. Part of South Africa’s intervention will include strengthening family planning, especially teenage pregnancies, as they contribute up to 36% of maternal deaths, despite only constituting 8% of the total number of pregnancies. Others measures will include eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV; strengthening maternity services by deploying dedicated obstetric ambulances to transport women in labour to the nearest appropriate health facility; training doctors and nurses who work in maternity units in the essential steps in the management of child birth emergencies; training more midwives and advanced midwives; and expanding immunisation coverage. “Unfortunately, despite progress in dealing with HIV since 2009, HIV still contributes to about 40% of maternal and child deaths in South Africa. This means that unless we deal decisively with HIV, we will not be able to reduce maternal and child mortality to any significant extent,” Zuma said. In order to address this, he said the country’s HIV programme – where citizens are encouraged to get tested for HIV at least once a year – was imperative in beating the epidemic. According to the World Health Organisation, as many as 1 500 women die every day globally due to complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. Most of these deaths occur in developing countries, most of them in Africa. Source: SANews.gov.za
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) submitted comments on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed rule to allow year-round sales of 15% ethanol blends, or E15, by eliminating the outdated barrier that currently requires retailers in many areas of the country to stop selling E15 during the summer months.“By allowing E15 to receive the same summer volatility adjustment EPA permits for E10, retailers will be able to offer drivers E15 year-round, providing choice to their customers without an interruption in sales between June and September,” NCGA President Lynn Chrisp wrote in the submitted comments. “Corn growers have advocated for this change for several years, and we agree with EPA’s assessment that the conditions that led EPA to provide the original volatility adjustment for E10, at a time when 10% was the highest ethanol blend available, are ‘equally applicable to E15 today.’”In addition to being beneficial for farmers, higher blends of renewable fuels such as E15 also lower fuel prices for drivers and reduce emissions, improving air quality and providing greater greenhouse gas reductions.While NCGA supports EPA’s proposal to provide parity for E15 with standard 10 percent ethanol blends, NCGA cautioned EPA against finalizing proposed Renewable Identification Number (RIN) market rule changes that would be counterproductive to greater biofuels blending supported by the E15 rule. NCGA urged the EPA to take steps to ensure the complex RIN market proposal does not weigh down the final E15 rule, which is needed by June 1 to avoid an interruption in E15 sales.The push for E15 does have ample opponents, however, including the National Wildlife Federation that claims the Trump Administration’s move toward E15 summer sales defies Clean Air Act protections, will endanger wildlife and harm drinking water. The National Wildlife Federation submitted comments along with the Clean Air Task Force, Earthjustice, and Sierra Club to the Environmental Protection Agency.“The Trump Administration’s proposal to increase summer ethanol usage is as irresponsible as it is illegal — and would accelerate the destruction of wildlife habitat and pollution of our air, waterways and drinking water,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “This latest overreach underscores the urgent need for Congress to reform the Renewable Fuel Standard to establish rational biofuels policy that promotes more sustainable fuels without adversely impacting public health and our natural resources.”
