Valladolid-Real Madrid Head to the lead

first_imgThere are parties that enter the history of a League for its beauty and others for its importance. Of the last, clearly, it was this one from Zorrilla, which Madrid won the sprint against an opponent with more grip than marketing. He decided on a header from Nacho, side nosy to battering ram, A guard defense. That outburst gave Madrid a leadership that lost in Mallorca, on the ninth day, the night everything changed. Valladolid went from more to less and it was not enough with the dignity to stop that inertia of Madrid that accompanies the champions, to win the sun and the shadow, with arguments or with the hammer.There are teams whose pride is well above their budget, their salary limit or their ability to sell t-shirts. One of the most honorable is Valladolid, before which Madrid did not break the cold chain that began in Salamanca and will end in Zaragoza on Wednesday. The faith plus the organization are the climbing equipment of Sergio González, a commendably economical team that with very little takes two and a half years reaching the end of the month.From the ethics of the effort, he presented Madrid with a game full of discomforts, with a center of the physical field, pressing, numerous and supportive. That piranha pond drove the Zidane de Masip team away.Zidane presented the most ambitious version of his 4-4-2, with Isco in that confused position between the classic midfielder and the disguised end of the wheel. However, nothing allowed Valladolid in the last third of the field during the first half. Isco’s inclusion was at the expense of Valverde, which has two extras: physical exuberance and its status as a native of Uruguay, a country that with less than three and a half million inhabitants was twice world champion because it placed football at the center of the universe. Without that overflowing Valverde game the game was at the point that suited Valladolid, the one of the extreme fight and the lack of activity in the proximity of the areas. A meeting, ultimately, flattened by the poles.The first stumble of Madrid was with the VAR. Joaquin made a garnet card entry to Rodrygo obviated by distance arbitration and Kroos put it in the second suit to Casemiro, whose powerful header beat Masip. It would have been the third consecutive goal of the Brazilian had not mediated an offside of a span. Casemiro, in any case, was the best acclimatized Madrid footballer to a game of much push and little ornament. Nor did Valladolid go too far in its aspirations. Míchel’s Olympic corner attempt, deflected by Courtois, was the closest thing to an occasion. It turned out, actually, a lawsuit of patience against patience: Valladolid hoped that the game would give him a chance when Madrid tightened his watch and those of Zidane were confident that the wear on the chase would soften Sergio’s. And so long he left a cold shock like marble.Madrid, despite Zidane’s smile that seems to take away everything, It has a serious definition problem. Between Barça and Benzema they had helped him hide it until now, but the Frenchman is an executioner with a tuxedo who occasionally misses the goal. It happened more often with Cristiano, but the drought still attacks him again today. And Rodrygo, just out of the classroom, has not acquired a regularity that only give the years.On the outside he didn’t get too much. Mendy lacks Marcelo’s finesse in enemy territory and Nacho, the correturnos, does not extend the band as much as Carvajal.The talk of rest in the locker room of Madrid should have been a reminder that the leadership was inches away, because in the second episode a more vigorous and fast team appeared. It started from afar and continued closely. Masip took a flat shot from Rodrygo, tried without a guy Kroos from afar, it was a very clear opportunity for Benzema for trying an assist where he asked for a shot and another for not directing a straight header. Valladolid had been sentenced to an involuntary bolt. It had started being a nuisance and had just become a trench. Zidane made his way to the right with Lucas Vázquez, but the party gave him the silk boot of Kroos, who placed a precise banana in the heart of the area and headed Nacho next to the stick. It was the ninth goal of a defense so far this year. Madrid has learned to distribute the goal and already has eighteen authors. Valladolid still had one last big deal, with a goal annulled Sergi Guardiola out of play, but his strength was the resistance and not the answer.last_img read more

WHY THE ANC BELIEVES A CONSTITUTIONAL CASE HAS NOT BEEN PRESENTED FOR POSTPONEMENT OF…

first_imgLike many Liberians, the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and its members are closely watching the case currently before the Supreme Court regarding postponement of the senatorial elections.  We believe that the Constitution provides no support for the arguments asserted by those seeking to postpone the elections. Below we address each of those arguments and show why they are completely lacking in any constitutional basis.  Accordingly, we are of the firm belief that the Court will deny the various petitions to postpone the elections and allow the Liberian people to exercise their right to vote on December 16, the date currently set for the senatorial elections:1. One of the major arguments asserted before the Court by those seeking to postpone the elections is that the Legislature and the Executive Branches of Government did not have any powers under the Constitution to change the date (October 16) set forth in the Constitution for the holding of elections in Liberia.The ANC believes this argument is without merit because the October 16 date set forth in the Constitution for holding elections was changed pursuant to the President’s legitimate exercise of emergency powers duly granted her under the Constitution.  Articles 85-88 of the Constitution provide that the President may exercise emergency powers when she secures the approval of the Legislature to do so.  There is no dispute that, in keeping with the Constitution, the President sought and obtained legislative approval for the exercise of emergency powers as a result of the Ebola crisis. There is also no dispute that pursuant to the legislative grant of emergency powers to the President, the senatorial elections scheduled for October 16 were postponed.Those challenging the constitutionality of the decision to change the election date have presented nothing to show that the President did not act in accordance with her legitimate grant of emergency powers.  The emergency powers Chapter of the Constitution expressly gives the President broad discretion to “suspend or affect certain rights, freedoms and guarantees contained in this Constitution and exercise such other emergency powers as may be necessary and appropriate to take care of the emergency, subject, however, to the limitations contained in this Chapter.”  See Article 86 (emphasis ours).  Article 87 then sets forth the limitations on the President’s exercise of emergency powers or those things the President may not do when she exercises emergency powers.  In particular, Article 87 expressly states that the President may not do the following when she  exercises emergency powers: She may not a) suspend the Constitution; b) dissolve the Legislature; c) suspend or dismiss the Judiciary; or d) suspend the writ of habeas corpus.  Significantly, the postponement of elections is not listed among those things a President may not do when she exercises emergency powers.Two conclusions can be drawn from the crucial fact that the Constitution expressly says what the President cannot do when she exercises emergency powers but does not include the postponement of elections amongst the things she cannot do.  The first conclusion we can reach is that the framers of our constitution knew how to put limits on the President’s exercise of emergency powers–they knew what rights the President could not curtail and what other actions she could not take when she exercises emergency powers and they clearly listed those rights she could not curtail and actions she could not take.The second conclusion we can reach is that because the framers knew how to put limits on the President’s exercise of emergency powers, they would have included changing the election date specified in the Constitution amongst the things the President could not do when she exercises emergency powers if they intended to deny her the power to do so. But they did not do so.  Accordingly, the conclusion is inescapable that the framers of the Constitution did not intend to limit the powers of the President to postpone elections when she legitimately exercises emergency powers.We therefore submit that, for the reasons set forth above, the argument that there was no constitutional basis to change the October 16 election date specified in the Constitution is simply without merit and must be dismissed by the Court.2. Another argument put forward by those challenging the decision to change the election date is that the change amounted to an amendment to the Constitution.  Therefore, they argue that only another amendment can alter this change.The argument that the postponement of the senatorial elections constitutes an amendment to the constitution simply does not hold water. Articles 91-92 set forth the procedure for amending the Constitution. That procedure requires the approval of a petition to amend by two-thirds of both houses of the legislature and ratification by two-thirds of registered voters in a referendum. Further, amendments represent permanent change to the constitution that can only be undone by subsequent amendments.  The postponement of the senatorial elections does not satisfy any of these requirements for an amendment. There was no ratification of the postponement by the people. Also the postponement is a onetime thing, meant only to deal with the Ebola crisis, and not a permanent change to the constitution.Moreover, Article 87 (a) provides that “no constitutional amendment may be promulgated during a state of emergency.” As we have already noted, the postponement of the senatorial elections was done pursuant to the President’s exercise of emergency powers.  Accordingly, per Article 87(a)’s prohibition of amendments during a state of emergency, the postponement, which was done during a state of emergency, cannot constitute an amendment.3. Relying on Article 1 of the Constitution, which provides that power is “inherent in the people,” those seeking to cancel the elections now scheduled for December 16 also contend that only the Liberian people and not the Legislature can set a new election date.We believe this argument is seriously flawed.   Article 29 of the Constitution expressly provides that the “the legislative power of the Republic shall be vested in the Legislature of Liberia.” Accordingly, the Legislature is the only body clothed with constitutional authority to enact laws.  Therefore, given the postponement of the senatorial elections as a result of the Ebola crisis and pursuant to the legitimate exercise of emergency powers by the President, only the Legislature has the authority to enact a law setting a new date for those elections.The language in Article 1 of the Constitution that all power is inherent in the people simply provides no support for the argument that only the Liberian people and not the Legislature can set a new election date.  When the Constitution speaks in Article 1 of all power being “inherent in the people,” it does not mean that we have a direct democracy in which all 4 million people in Liberia make laws. Instead, as the Constitution expressly recognizes in Article 3, our “form of government is Republican,” meaning we have a representative democracy in which the people elect their representatives who make laws and a president who enforces the laws. The elected representatives of the people (members of the Senate and the House of Representatives) have enacted law setting a date for elections which were postponed pursuant to the President’s legitimate exercise of emergency powers.There is another crucial flaw in the arguments advanced by those seeking to postpone the elections.  They argue that because the Constitution vests supreme powers in the Liberian people, what they describe as “stakeholders” representing the people should set new date for elections. To the extent the so-called stakeholders are not the elected representatives of the Liberian people, they have no legitimacy, no constitutional authority to make laws that set new date for election, as the power to make laws reside only with the duly elected representatives of the people.  Indeed, we would be turning the principle that power is inherent in the people on its head were we to allow unelected so-called stakeholders, rather than the duly elected representatives of the people, to set the date for the postponed senatorial elections.Finally, we recognize and deeply appreciate the legitimate concerns about how the ongoing Ebola crisis may affect the holding of elections.  The ANC and its members believe, however, that the World Health Organizations and other health agencies have set forth guidelines that will allow us to hold legitimately free and fair elections without contributing to the spread of Ebola. We call on the Ministry of Health and other responsible government agencies to implement and educate Liberians about those guidelines and thus ensure we have our scheduled elections and show the world that our young democracy is strong and alive despite an unfortunate health crisis.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Neyor’s ‘Founding Campaigners’ Quit

first_imgThree members of the campaign team of Montserrado County Senatorial hopeful, Dr. Christopher Z. Neyor, have resigned from his campaign team. The three men cited toleration of corruption, engaging in tribalism and nepotism, among others.But the Friends of Christopher Z. Neyor’s Campaign Team said the resignation didn’t come as a surprise as they (3 men) allegedly failed to siphon money from Neyor. The campaign team described the men as “miscreants and money extorters.”The former campaigners, who were also founding members of the Friends of Christopher Z. Neyor, are James Hne Dossen, chief of strategy, T. Benjamin Myers, chief propagandist and Oliver Yarbah, public affairs head. They stated that the intent for the establishment of the Friends of Christopher Z. Neyor  (FOCN) was to change the course of governance in getting rid of corruption, nepotism, tribalism and the mismanagement of resources, which according to them was part of the campaign manifesto; but things are business as usual with corruption everywhere.The trio made the announcement recently in a press conference in Monrovia.However, the spokesperson of the FOCN, Mr. Chris Harris, termed as unfortunate and diabolical statements coming from their former campaign colleagues that Dr. Neyor is practicing nepotism and encouraging acts of corruption in his campaign initiatives.Harris stated that Dr. Neyor is an uncompromising campaigner of change whose personal and institutional undertakings are usually marked by fiscal prudence.He maintained that the men’s allegation against Dr. Neyor is laughable.“Christopher Z. Neyor is a character who believes in accentuating credential and performance over tribal persuasions and narrowed parochial considerations. Mr. Neyor is a patriot in whose diction there is no tribe, section and ethnicity. His history of employment since his entry in public service in the 80s is replete with geopolitical balance, cross sectional focus and equity in ethnic representation. As a campaigner against nepotism and other negative vices in the Liberian society, Dr. Neyor has won the admiration of the public and can do nothing to shoot himself in the leg,” the Campaign Committee said.Meanwhile, the three former officials of the Neyor’s Campaign accused Mr. Neyor of appointing his wife’s cousin as chairman on membership, mobilization and recruitment; his nephew, George McGill, as head of logistics; and Elijah Kaysaynee, his tribesman from Rivercess County, as the office administrator.The trio further argued that Dr. Neyor appointed another two of his kinsmen, Vincent Baryogar Smith and Agatius Cooker, campaign manager and youth coordinator respectively, both of whom have allegedly embezzled US$16,000.But, in reaction the FOCN spokesman said, “It is not a surprise that these miscreants, after having failed to siphon money from Christopher Neyor, have decided to bury their individual and collective consciences, compromise their parental upbringings and negated the call of morality because of small pocket money.”“To set the record straight,” Harris opined, “there have been no positions in the structure of the campaign team of Christopher Neyor as chief propagandist and director of public affairs, so we believed that Benjamin Myers and Oliver Yarbah purporting as former Chief Propagandist and Director of Public Affairs are elements in proxy for their new political master, who is jittery at the presence of Dr. Christopher Neyor in the Montserrado County senatorial race.”The Campaign Committee added: “We want to call on the public to give no attention to the smear campaign being propagated by Benjamin Myers and Oliver Yarbah. It is a scheme meant to scandalize the hard-earned reputation and profound character of a nationalist like Christopher Z. Neyor who has worked over the years to build a character that sails beyond reproach.”Political pundits have opined that most of this stabbing in the back and crisscrossing of supporters are expected during this election season as most of the “so-called supporters” of party/candidate ‘A’ are also members of party/candidate ‘B’, but are only in party/candidate’s A’s t-shirt just to get what he or she can.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Enough of this Nonsense — A Call to Crush Rape and Rapists

first_imgMy heart has been bleeding with displeasure and discontent since Sunday for the 12 year old school-age girl who was cruelly raped to death by a 40-year old man in Brewerville City, Montserrado County. With tears rolling down my face and pain running through my vein, I greatly share in the sorrow of the bereaved family. It is unfortunate and sad to comprehend the alarming rate of rape in Liberia. Why should Liberia have 554 rape cases just in 12 months under a female President and Gender Minister? This is ridiculous and bizarre. Therefore, I hereby recommend the following measures:Review and Reshape our rape law and make it more rigorous in order to deter prospective rapists. The implementation of and adherence to this statute is paramount as well.Establish a special anti-rape court with a statutory mandate to hear cases of rape and sexual crimes only and increase support to WACP unit, Gender Ministry, and other women-related organizations. Minister Julia Duncan Cassell needs to resign or be dismissed due to incompetence and non-qualification. You cannot have a Minister in such a critical position with a proven record of inefficiency and ineffectiveness to prevent crimes against girls and women. Government is not about friendship!Increase tariff or import tax on alcoholic beverages and goods and on domestic brewery companies. Increase tariff or import tax on sexy/enticing/tempting attires or pornographic wearing used mostly by women.  Prevent underage citizens or kids from visiting video clubs and entertainment centers. A juvenile should not have access to liquor. Prohibit sale of pornographic video and audio on the Liberian MarketCreate genuine empowerment and employment programs for young girls and women. Set up an anti-rape taskforce in each district, and if possible in each community.Increase access to basic information on prevention of rape in all schools and empower more SGBV counselors and GBV community mobilizers.As I mourn the untimely homegoing of this innocent child, it provokes my tenacity and invokes my audacity to advance an uncompromising struggle to defend our sisters and mothers from all forms of exploitation and abuse. It is time to fight for them, because they are very vulnerable to unscrupulous non-entities and societal enemies. Until we can consider women as our equal partners, our country will remain on an irreversible verge of underdevelopment and inequality. They are not sub-humans, but creatures with extraordinary abilities. We must protect their right to coexist freely. The choice is yours to remain mute or raise loud alarm in defense of their rights and protection. I will make my position formal very soon on the recent rape incident and the general exploitation of women in Liberia. This nonsense (rape) must come to an end.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stones can force his way into Chelsea’s first-team’, claims Everton legend Andy Gray

first_imgEverton legend Andy Gray ruefully expects John Stones to join Chelsea before the close of the transfer window, and believes the young defender can immediately challenge for a first-team spot at Stamford Bridge.Chelsea have been chasing the 21-year-old defender all summer, and have so far had three big-money bids – with the most recent reportedly around £30million – rejected by the Merseyside outfit.Stones has kept his head down throughout the whole saga, continuing to take to the field for the Toffees amid the speculation.But reports emerged on Tuesday that the England international had finally submitted a transfer request, while the Blues are thought to be ‘confident’ of landing him with an increased offer of £40million – which would make Stones the second most expensive defender in history.Former Toffees striker Gray is keen for Stones to remain at Goodison Park, but concedes the opportunity to join the Premier League champions is too good to turn down.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Goodison Park hero said: “It’s tough. As an Evertonian, I obviously don’t want him to go, I’d rather he stayed at Everton for another couple of years.“But it’s really difficult for him. He’s been very quiet, he’s gone on and played, he’s done the right thing and gone about it really well.“But now with the transfer request, all that does is just tell everybody that he would like Everton to take the offer, if it’s acceptable, and he would like to move on.“Of course I would like him to stay, but I really do understand that the young lad has an opportunity to play for Chelsea.“But I don’t agree that he might spend the next two years on the bench, I don’t think that will happen. I think he’s good enough to force his way into that team sooner rather than later.“Even if he did spend a year learning about Chelsea, working with John Terry and Gary Cahill and making himself a better player and then coming into the team constantly next season – I can see him doing that.“I can’t see the deal not going through.“It’ll be a really big call from Everton if they turn down another bid, but I think Everton fans will have to get used to the fact that by next Tuesday, John Stones will be a Chelsea player.”last_img read more

Prepared Los Osos pushes past Highland, 20-7

first_img The Bulldogs answered with their lone score, a 44-yard run by Micah Littlejohn, before Los Osos took the ball back and converted a second straight 84-yard drive into a touchdown. On fourth-and-9, Anderson found Hogan on a deep post over the secondary for a 34-yard score. “We came up with some big plays at some big times,” Grizzlies coach Tom Martinez said. Los Osos sustained momentum in the final minute of the first half as Jared Gross, who hit a 20-yard field goal to open the second half, connected on a 36-yard field goal. The score was set up by junior linebacker Jerry Tomeo. He batted the ball away from Highland QB Kevin Bevans before he could pitch the ball and recovered the fumble at the Highland 21. Tomeo was operating by the basic principle the team learned in preparing for the double-wing. “Get low and blow the inside,” Tomeo said. “You have to destroy the inside.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! RANCHO CUCAMONGA – Whether it be the spread of Marina or the double-wing of Highland, the Los Osos Grizzlies are clawing up the opposition’s offense like a fresh piece of meat. Facing a scheme operating completely from the other end of the spectrum from last week, Los Osos’ disciplined, speedy defense held Highland’s double-wing to 154 yards – 34 in the second half – on the way to a comfortable 20-7 home victory. Los Osos is 2-0 before the brunt of the Week 1 schedule kicks off tonight, and already the Grizzlies’ coaches and defense are on the same page. Los Osos’ defense is where most of the team’s returners lie and the unit is responsibly assuming leadership. “We were watching a lot of film (the first two weeks),” senior defensive end Mike Nixon said. “We got to give it up to the coaching staff. Our defense always has to step it up for our offense. A lot of our defense has been running this for four years.” center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Los Osos successfully counteracted Highland’s size in the trenches by aggressively filling the gaps with speed. It made 13 tackles for loss, and six more for no gain, on 46 plays run by Highland (1-1), which scraped for two second-half first downs. It ventured as deep as the Los Osos 44 while trying to rally from a 17-7 halftime deficit. Nixon and senior Tyler Rogina, Los Osos’ end on the opposite side, had two sacks apiece. “I love that!” Rogina exclaimed. “We practice harder than anyone around. We’re not super big, but we make up for it.” Highland’s seven-minute-plus, first-quarter drive turned up empty after Garett Gentry and Victor Perez made stops behind the line of scrimmage to force it to punt from the Los Osos 35. The Grizzlies’ out-of-sync offense, which lost a cumulative two yards over its first five plays, finally ignited. On the last play of the first quarter, quarterback Mike Anderson hit Freddy Garcia for 15 yards on a middle screen on third-and-6. Jared Hogan followed with consecutive 13-yard runs before Mark Chase carried up the middle on the next play and raced 39 yards, unchallenged, to the end zone. last_img read more
