Antonio López relives the Europa League 2010: “The most special”

first_imgAntonio López, historical left back of Atlético (284 games between 2000 and 2012), has inaugurated the Memories of Legend that the club has launched to liven up this quarantine. The former player remembers with special affection the 2010 Europa League, the Hamburg final against Fulham (2-1) and the moment when he, as captain, lifted the trophy, the club’s first European title in 38 years.Reliving the final: “They are very emotional moments, I remember that we went two days because of the problem with the volcano. It is not usual to go with such advance notice and, from the inside and what a player sees, what you want is for the game to come already. It was hard to be So much there, we spent training, watching videos, being with colleagues, talking about what would happen … It had been many years (38) since Atleti had not won a European final. “ The 1-0: “Forlán scored. The play started on Reyes’ right, it fell to Kun, he made a half-shot, he reached Forlán and put it in. It was a moment of explosion, of thinking” uf, we have it close “…The 1-1: “They tied us relatively early, with a bit of bad luck. A rejection by a comrade who combed it and a rival (Davies) marks us. At that time perhaps people thought that we were going to come down, but inside it was the opposite : “Come on, kids, we’re going to get it out …”2-1: “In overtime, when Forlán scores, I have the memory of running away, taking off his shirt, everyone trying to grab him until I get there, I grab him, throw him to the ground, everyone on top of him, the bench, people screaming … explosion of joy and joy that is unique. Today I do not know how to explain all that feeling because it was wonderful. “Champions: “I remember the moment of the final whistle, I do have that in mind. The teammates ran to one side, to the other, the teammates entered … There I lowered the revolutions and went to the rival team, to congratulate them for the game, for the competition, and after shaking hands and giving hugs of consolation, I went back to celebrate with my teammates and we went up for the Cup. “A long-awaited triumph: “It was a dream final, all the fans lived it with great enthusiasm. We were looking forward to it and we were quite good at it. I remember it as the most special. I don’t know if it was the first, because we had been there for a long time … A satisfaction to be able to do it as captain “. Sensations: “We went out to the game with a little tension. I saw the teammates, including myself, that we were not the same, but we immediately let go and realized that this game could not escape us. From within, the feeling that we had is that we took that final, with 0-0, with 1-0 … “last_img read more

Third place Arsenal not playing in the league this weekend but Tottenham Hotspur, in second, can cut the deficit to two when they face Newcastle on Sunday.

Wanting the law to work one way

first_imgDear Editor,Former President Dr Bharrat Jagdeo said he would suspend his presidential immunity if Granger did the same. What Jagdeo was saying is that he wants the sitting president – Granger — to do the honest thing and turn up at SOCU and answer questions pertaining to various actions in his presidency.The key word here is reciprocity. If this PNC/AFC Coalition Government is serious about fighting corruption, or anything for that matter, then they, too, must go through the same torrid test as is the Opposition.The PNC-led coalition is very dicey and highly fearful when they are posed with searching questions about their management or lack thereof when in or out of office. Theirs is a “don’t ask me any questions” full stop end of discussion attitude. The maturity and openness that the PPP/C has demonstrated before SOCU so far is something that will never be seen from the present powers that be.But this is not the first time the Opposition has been called in for questioning, which they gracefully acceded to. One can recall the honourable Jagdeo being hauled before the court on charges of racial incitement.In that instance, he turned up for the matter in Magistrate Charlyn Artiga’s court to answer charges of racial incitement.Here’s my point: The PNC always harp on the tune that the PPP/C always hide behind the presidential immunity clause, and that is the reason why they are getting away from prosecution.This is furthest from the truth, the PPP would willingly like to get to that point, only if the PNC would do likewise. There is no guarantee that they would ever do such. The PNC is all about witch-hunting the PPP/C into incarceration, as it perfectly suits their agenda; only, let them not face the same music. Their mantra is: try to get the PPP out of the picture, so that they can have full reign over this country; only, don’t let us (PNC) be subjected to any scrutiny at all.They have done it at National Elections, where a recount of all fraudulent voting cannot be effectuated. They have done it again in Parliament, where they have albeit muzzled healthy debate on matters pertaining to the well-being of this country. The trickery is on right now in the ghost selection for personnel for Local Government Elections 2018. The PNC/AFC are doing their level best to subvert every norm, every law there is that makes for good, successful and smooth governance.The framers of the laws of Guyana, where presidents and their parties are in Government, were of the mistaken belief that they would be in power for life, and that the PPP would never be able to enjoy those privileges they were entitled to. That was Burnham’s firm belief; that is why he framed that 1980 Constitution, the essence of it was that they (PNC) alone would have reaped the rewards of it. It is their mistaken belief that the Opposition would never ever come into Government. For this very same reason, you would have heard them make that cry for a reform of the Constitution. That call was most vociferous when the PNC were in the opposition; however, quite noticeably, it is not a rallying cry right now, because they are the recipients of the 1980 Constitution. I can guarantee you this issue would be resurrected if they were to lose at the next general elections.The problem with the PNC is that they would like the law to work one way, and that is: to their advantage only. Well, they are ever so wrong. The law, as it stands, is for all, not to be used at the whims and fancies of any political group.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more

Bethesda Wins NHS Debate Competition

first_imgBethesda Mission School systemBethesda Christian Mission High School, rated as an underdog during the start of the Liberia Inter-High School debate competition, has emerged as the winner after beating Liberia Dujar High School.The debate, staged over the weekend at the Monrovia City Hall, ended when the judges announced that Bethesda won by 80-72 points against Dujar. The schools debated on the topic ‘whether section 5.1 and 2 of the Code of Conduct should have been implemented or not during this election.’The closely fought final, turned out in favor of Bethesda when one of Dujar’s presenters made a slip up in her argument. Bethesda, on the negative side of the argument, noted that this particular section of the law seeks to disenfranchise certain groups of people from enjoying their constitutional rights.Although the CoC is constitutional, this particular section, if implemented, would have violated Article 21 a of Liberia’s 1986 Constitution, which states that “No person shall be made subject to any law or punishment which was not in effect at the time of commission of an offense, nor shall the Legislature enact any bill of attainder or ex post facto law,” Bethesda said.However, Dujar argued that the CoC was enacted to promote democracy and foster harmony, which should have been implemented. Dujar took the affirmative side of the argument that the CoC was in no way meant to deny people from participation, but to rather set the rules straight.Quoting Article 90 (C) of the Liberian Constitution of 1986, Dujar said the constitution  authorized the Legislature to prescribe a Code of Conduct for all public officials and employees including “stipulating the acts which constitute conflicts of interest or are against public policy and punishment for violation thereof.” Pursuant to this constitutional provision, a Code of Conduct was enacted into law.Beulah Nimene, a student from St. Michael Catholic School, won the ‘Most Eloquent Speaker,’ but lost the MVP title to John Singbae from Bethesda.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Public Health Ministry holds “Teal Walk”

first_imgWorld Cancer Day 2018More than one hundred participants braved the Sunday morning sun to participate in the Public Health Ministry’s Teal Walk in observance of World Cancer Day, held under the theme “Prevent Cervical Cancer, get screened today”.Beginning at the Parade Ground in Eve Leary Georgetown at the crack of dawn, the entourage proceeded south to Church Street, then east to Vlissengen Road, then north to Lamaha Street, and west to Camp Street before turning north on Camp Street to conclude the exercise back at the Parade Ground.Participants of the “Teal Walk”With chants of, “Early Detection, Save Lives!” from the participants as they walked, it was a clear indication that the Public Health Ministry’s main focus is to encourage women to get screened.According to Junior Minister of Public Health, Dr. Karen Cummings, who addressed the gathering following the walk, it is everyone’s duty to ensure that women in Guyana get screened for cervical cancer.Noting the importance of women being educated on the deadly disease, the Minister said, “Women must be educated about the symptoms of cervical cancer, and seek medical advice if experiencing any such symptoms. Women must also know where to find support”.Dr. Cummings revealed that, in 2014, the Public Health Ministry had conducted an assessment of cancers that occurred in Guyana over a 10-year period. Following that assessment, statistics showed that cervical cancer was the second most common cancer among women in Guyana.The organizing team behind the event“According to the data obtained, the average incidence rate of cervical cancer in Guyana is 46.9 per 100,000. The highest incidence and prevalence rates were found among Afro-Guyanese women. Unfortunately, the data demonstrated that approximately two-thirds of all of the cases of cervical cancer occurred among women below age 60 years, and the highest percentage occurred in the 15-to-39-years’ age group.The data demonstrated that a mere 4 percent of the cervical cancers that occurred among the Guyanese women over the 10-year period were diagnosed at stage one, whereas the majority of the patients were diagnosed at stage 4; which contributed to an average annual mortality of 27 per 100,000,” Dr. Cummings said the statistics showed.Dr. Cummings admonished that young girls should take the vaccine against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). She noted that the vaccine programme is part of the Public Health Ministry’s plan to reduce the morality rate of cervical cancer.The Minister explained, “The goal is to achieve a minimum of 95% coverage of the target population. We must encourage mothers to follow through, so that we can achieve full coverage, thus potentially reducing cervical cancer in the at-risk age group… The Ministry of Public Health will be targeting girls aged 9-16 years as recommended by the Technical Advisory Group on Vaccination”.Dr, Cummings emphasized that even though the HPV vaccine is important, screening is imperative, and is not to be replaced by the vaccine, as both are equally important.Concluding, Minister Cummings further encouraged: “Screening is for people without symptoms as a preventative measure… The importance of raising awareness about cervical cancer cannot be overstated. Therefore, each of us must do our part in ensuring that we encourage our women to get screened for cervical cancer, so that early detection can result in early pretreatment and/or the prevention of the onset of cervical cancer”.last_img read more

Sweeney has no problem with Bonds

first_imgBonds’ arrival this year might be crazier than even in recent springs. Not only is he fully healthy and only 22 home runs from passing Hank Aaron’s career record of 755, but the reported amphetamines result and the situation with Sweeney remains fresh in everyone’s minds. Not to mention he could be indicted if a federal grand jury finds he perjured himself when he testified in 2003 in the BALCO steroid distribution case that he hadn’t knowingly taken performance-enhancing drugs. Last month, the New York Daily News reported when Bonds first learned of his failed amphetamines test, he attributed it to a substance he took from Sweeney’s locker. Sweeney plans to take a lead role in helping build chemistry in the clubhouse once all the position players are in camp. Shortstop Omar Vizquel, who said Monday he would love to work out a contract extension past this season, doesn’t expect Bonds to stand up and say sorry to the group, although he hinted it might be a nice gesture. “Knowing Barry, I don’t think he’s going to,” Vizquel said. “Maybe a situation where we’re having a team meeting and he might stress it. He’s not the kind of guy who will call a team meeting and apologize to everybody. I think he realizes he made a mistake. He apologized publicly and I think he’ll move on from that.” Sweeney, Vizquel, right fielder Randy Winn, third baseman Pedro Feliz, infielder Kevin Frandsen, outfielder Todd Linden and new first baseman/outfielder Ryan Klesko were among the position players who arrived and did some work Monday. SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Mark Sweeney showed up at spring training ready to strictly talk baseball, not the report that teammate Barry Bonds blamed a failed amphetamines test last season on something he got from Sweeney’s locker. Sweeney insists there will be no issues between them and he isn’t harboring any hard feelings toward Bonds, who is scheduled to work out for the first time today with a frenzy of media following his every move. “Everything’s been fine,” said Sweeney, who received a public apology from Bonds. “It was over and done with. It’s time to move on and talk about baseball, which has been good. Barry and I have been fine. That’s how I am. I’m back to it. Everyone is in here. “It’s not about me and Barry. It’s about everybody.” center_img They all know the circus comes to town today. Bonds spent the weekend in Las Vegas for the NBA All-Star game and didn’t have to show his face for reporting day, a phone call to say he’d arrived in Arizona would suffice. Sweeney might be a little more well-known these days because of what happened, although he seriously doubts many fans will remember him. “I’m not a household name. I’m still a pinch-hitter and always will be,” he said. “The normalcy part is me showing up and having fun, doing my little pranks or joking around and having a good time. That’s what I love to do. It’s part of me putting a uniform on.” And he knows he can’t control what people think. Sweeney has said there was nothing in his locker for Bonds to take. “People are going to do whatever they want and they pay for tickets,” he said. “They can say or do whatever they want in relative terms. My job is to go out there and perform and do well for this organization.” AP Baseball Writer Ronald Blum contributed to this story. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
