In the match of the 10th matchday in Zaragoza, the yellows prevailed clearly 0-2, with goals from Choco Lozano and Nano; while in the Cádiz party, the result was 1-1, with a goal from Álex Fernández in the last minutes of the game that served to add a valuable point. Theoretical eleven headlines have never coincided again so far this season. Cádiz players with the most minutes PlayerMinutes Espino2,540 The initial eleven of Cádiz is recited from memory. Any yellow fan would know how to tell the team that Álvaro Cervera would line up in the event that they had not been penalized or injured, which unfortunately has been a constant during the 31 days that have been disputed. This team matches the most used players, however, as incredible as it seems these eleven players have only met on the field in two games. Curiously both against Zaragoza. Sanctions and especially the lesions have ravaged the Cervera’s team, which has had to supply the numerous losses with other players. Of the eleven, only Iza and Álex have been present in the 31 league games, followed by Cifuentes (at 30) and Espino (29). As of the Uruguayan, the remaining seven have lost at least five games. José Mari is the one who has had the most absences. Almost two months were lost due to a clavicular acromio dislocation in his left shoulder, produced against Fuenlabrada, which caused him to undergo operating room.Nonetheless it the broad template that has Álvaro Cervera has allowed the yellow club stay on top from the table. All players have had their opportunities. Iván Alejo, Edu Ramos and Marcos Mauro are the ones who have entered Álvaro Cervera’s line-ups the most times, out of the eleven most used players. All three have started at the beginning in ten games. Nano and the youth squad Sergio González have also had a great presence; and even the three winter signings they had their options before the stop due to the coronavirus. Pombo, Álvaro Giménez and Mabasic enjoyed minutes in four games.last_img read more

APNU, AFC to contest LGE under one ticket

first_imgAfter months of uncertainty, the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) have finally decided to contest the Local Government Elections (LGE) under one ticket.This disclosure was made by AFC Chairman Minister Khemraj Ramjattan on Wednesday. This decision, he said, was made even as the parties are still trying to put certain mechanisms in place to ensure that they contest the elections with aPresident David Grangergood slate of candidates.“We have made a decision that we are going as a coalition. We have to trash out a number of issues preferably in relation to candidacy candidates, and number of other things,” he told the press, while noting that the AFC has noticed some unfortunate development in the Georgetown municipality.Ramjattan was referring to the attitude of APNU Councillors, including Town Clerk Royston King towards AFC members, which he claimed is “bothering us.” The AFC Chairman indicated that statements in this regard have been made and will be officially raised through communication with APNU officials.“A letter has gone to the President (David Granger) as leader of APNU and we are supposed to address that through our leaders, Raphael Trotman and him. I think there will be some development this week,” he explained. A meeting between the two could be held soon to iron out those issues.In mid-January, Trotman had announced the possibility of the party breaking awayAFC ChairmanKhemraj Ramjattanfrom the APNU for this year’s LGE. The AFC leader went as far as to reveal that there was a strong opinion of body within the party that the AFC should go alone, which may have been prompted over delays with reviewing the Cummingsburg Accord.The AFC has, of recent, come under fire for the perceived submissive role it played when it joined forces with APNU. In 2017 top leadership of the AFC had decided to revise its governing agreement with APNU.Days later, General Secretary of the People’s National Congress (PNC), the leading party in the APNU coalition, Amna Ally, said the APNU is prepared to contest the LGE without the AFC. However, the President had hinted that contesting LGE as a coalition would have been the best option.Meanwhile, despite several infightings among coalition members, especially at the level of the City Council, Ramjattan sought to defend both parties when he was asked to comment on the issue. He claimed that the relationship particularly at the Central Government level is cordial.“We have tremendously cordial relationship at that highest of level. I have a very good relationship with President Granger and his entire team and it’s not reflective of any kind of relationship at the bottom there as had happened in the municipality,” he explained to the media.The Minister admitted that the AFC’s opposition to the controversial parking meter project might have resulted in APNU controlling both the Mayor and Deputy Mayor positions. Only recently, the PNC dominated Council voted to replace AFC member Lionel Jaikarran as Deputy Mayor.Despite this move, Ramjattan said democracy must be respected. “It is a democratic decision and we have to learn to live with democratic decisions and indeed, I rather suspect that those who voted the way they did, didn’t like the principled positions of Sherod (Duncan) and Dr Jaikarran and so if they have the majority in that Council and they want the new guy – Peter – well they will have him,” he added.In trying to explain that the dynamics of Governments, whether coalition or not, he said everyone has some amount of issue. He advised therefore that decisions should never be taken on the basis on one’s emotion, and suggested that the infighting at the municipality is more of a personality issue.last_img read more

Tom Juma ‘not afraid’ of AFC Leopards responsibility

first_img0Shares0000The former Kenyan international who has previously worked with Administration Police and Muhoroni Youth says he is optimistic the club will rise despite finding them struggling at 12th spot on the Kenyan Premier League table. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 30 – Stand-in AFC Leopards head coach Tom Juma says he is not afraid of the huge responsibility ahead of him as he takes over the job with the 13-time champions on caretaker basis until the end of the season.The former Kenyan international who has previously worked with Administration Police and Muhoroni Youth says he is optimistic the club will rise despite finding them struggling at 12th spot on the Kenyan Premier League table. “Pressure will always be there and you don’t have to be afraid of anything. It is a big challenge and as a coach, I love big challenges. I will do my best to ensure that this team performs because they have the ability to do so. I know we are not in a good position at the moment, but we will pick,” Juma said.He takes over from Dorian Marin who might go down as the shortest serving Ingwe coach ever, having led the team for only two weeks. Differences between the Romanian and fellow technical bench members as well as some players saw him leave the club barely before signing a contract.Leopards have not won in eight domestic league matches and Juma knows only too well the expectations on them when they face Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday afternoon in Nakuru.“This is a big club and a big brand and it comes with demands. The best thing is to ensure the boys play relaxed and that is the biggest thing we have worked on this week. We have tried to ease the pressure off them and insisted we have to play relaxed,” Juma added.Ingwe comes up against a high flying Sharks that has been unbeaten over the same number of matches they have been struggling to get wins in.AFC Leopards Fans try to push their team on during the 1-1 draw with Zoo Kericho at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on May 15, 2017. PHOTO/ Raymond MakhayaJuma has his own measure of respect for the Premier League new boys, but insists he will be bumping his side up for three points.“The league is very tough this time and no team should be taken for granted. Kariobangi Sharks is a good team having watched them and their run speaks as much. But we need to go out there to get a win at all costs because it is high time we start winning matches,” added the coach.AFC Leopards will be without winger Allan Katterega who is nursing an ankle injury while left back Marcus Abwao is out with a knee injury, both picked up during the Super Cup in Dar es Salaam three weeks ago.But Juma and his technical bench will have a huge field to choose from with all but one of their new signings training with the club for the entire week. Burundian Alex Kitenge arrived in the country early Friday afternoon and will join training next week.“They have shown some good competitiveness in training and I think all of them have shown that they are ready to start on Saturday. We have a very good squad and that gives me confidence that we will do great things,” added Juma.AFC re-signed midfielder Musa Mudde from Bandari while Keziron Kizito touched down from Ugandan side Vipers, Victor Majid from Chemelil Sugar, former Thika United striker Ray Odhiambo and Aziz Okaka from Ushuru.The big departures are that of midfielder Bernard Mang’oli who has joined Sofapaka while striker Mungai Kiongera did not renew his contract.Ghanaian forward Gilbert Fiamenyo will miss the remainder of the second leg with injury.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Jews, Muslims mark holy days

first_imgIn a rare occurrence, the start of two major religious holidays – Rosh Hashana and Ramadan – are being brought together this year, with the Jewish High Holy Days beginning today and Islamic officials declaring the start of their holiest time Thursday. Along with prayers at temples and synagogues, large Islamic centers and masjids, Jews and Muslims will devote the next several days to introspection, acts of generosity, forgiveness and personal renewal. With the holy days so close together, this “is a special time that comes about coincidentally,” said Amir Hussain, professor of religious studies at Loyola Marymount University. “It’s a fascinating time for people to see commonalities in each other.” Beginning at sundown today, Jews in Los Angeles will join those around the world in observing Rosh Hashana, the start of the high-holidays period that ends 10 days later with Yom Kippur. And after the new moon has been spotted by special committees in London and in the Middle East, the monthlong Ramadan observance will begin. Because the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle, the start of Ramadan moves up 10 days every year. Some years it runs through summer. Ramadan is observed by abstaining from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. No cursing, lying, act of anger or other hurtful behavior is allowed. After sundown, Muslims participate in iftar, or a meal to break the fast, with family and friends. Rosh Hashana, which loosely translated means “head of the year” in Hebrew, is ushered in with the blowing of the shofar, which is made of a ram’s horn. On Yom Kippur, Jews will fast, refrain from work, attend services, atone for past sins and resolve not to repeat them, and seek forgiveness. “I’m focusing on the whole issue of dreams that are sometimes not achieved and the need to reflect back on what we thought we wanted, what we hoped to achieve when in reality, we didn’t,” said Rabbi Richard Camras of Shomrei Torah synagogue in West Hills. Camras said he is using the 60th anniversary of the state of Israel as a metaphor for what can be achieved, and for the struggles still ahead. “It’s a message of hope,” he said. “Life is not always as we imagined, but often it is beyond our control. “Rosh Hashana reminds us that the world was created for each one us. Each one of us is given this marvelous opportunity for our life. Each year gives us new hope and possibility.” Perhaps more noteworthy, the two holy times coinciding can be used to continue the dialogue between the two communities that are often at odds in the Middle East, local religious leaders said. “This is an opportunity for moderate-thinking Jews and moderate-thinking Muslims to celebrate their respective faiths and respect the paths of God that others have chosen,” said Rabbi Jim Kaufman of Temple Beth Hillel in Valley Village. “My wish for the coming year is that the people of this country will once again reassert themselves as smart, caring and assertive lovers of freedom.” That the two holiest of times for Jews and Muslims fall nearly on the same day brings a deeper, spiritual meaning, said Aref John Abedi, director of the Islamic Center of Reseda. “We must be kind and generous to all human beings regardless of race or color, and we should not keep any hatred That message of inclusion will be presented this week at services within the Jewish and Muslim communities. Rabbi Richard Flom of Burbank Temple Emanu El will speak about charity, about helping others at a time when many are suffering. “We as Jews and as Americans have become complacent, not just with charitable contributions, but in our day-to-day lives. We tend to turn away from things we don’t like to see. Sometimes it’s easier to avert our eyes.” As for the timing of the holidays, Flom wondered if there was more to it than just coincidence – if maybe God brought the two cultures together on purpose. “It’s a time for introspection,” he said, “when we should be thinking about each other.” susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

HEALTH & FITNESS: MICHAEL BLACK’S GUIDE TO GETTING FIT FOR SUMMER, PART 2

first_imgHopefully by now you have all started some sort of fitness programme and you are well on your way to being a fitter and healthier you!As we said in our last article commitment is the key to your own success and that means committing to other things outside of your exercise regime. Eating smarter and exercising must be major parts of your plan. Your eating plan should be about being smarter about your nutritional choices and not totally eliminating any one particular food group.If you have been a little careless during the winter months now is the time to get back on track. Your aim should be to eat smaller portions at shorter intervals throughout the day, say every three hours. This proves to be helpful in improving your metabolism and allowing your body to burn more calories even when you’re resting. You should also cut down the high fat food and keep this to a minimum. As much as we are all Spring cleaning at the minute you should look at making changes to your kitchen by stocking it with seasonal fruits, vegetables, grains  and good quality meats. Your meals should contain more of raw foods, fruits, nuts, seeds and sprouted whole grains. Fibrous fruits like blackberries, strawberry, can satisfy you cravings for sweets. They help reduce cholesterol and improve digestion. These foods can help with weight loss as they make you feel fuller faster.Dehydration can lead to lack of energy, mood changes and loss of concentration. This is made worse if you are training and working out where you are losing fluid through sweat. Aim to increase your fluid intake to 1.5-2 litres of water a day. Be careful what you select to drink. Some of the diet drinks can have a lot of hidden calories that you don’t want. Aim to drink semi skimmed milk and replace your tea with green tea.When it comes to exercising try and add as much variety into your schedule as possible. If you have a young son, daughter, niece or nephew they can be fantastic motivators to kick start your fitness regime. Plan activities with them for a weekend or a couple of evenings during the week. Swimming, playing a game of football, mountain biking are all fun ways of getting fit and the reality is they will probably have more energy than you so they will push you to your limits. They have fun and you get a great workout, everyone is a winner!Try a new fitness class or programme and add this into your weekly schedule. Take a friend with you and make a deal that you will both commit to getting each other there. There will be some days you will feel de-motivated and not want to go but if you have someone there to push you on you are more likely to succeed. Make these simple changes now and your summer fitness will be well on track and you can enjoy an active summer in the sun…….we hope!PS! Our new Pilates classes start next week. We have two classes @ week,one morning class on a Tuesday at 7:15am and one on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm.Classes are run by a fully qualified instructor and classes are kept small to ensure everyone gets the attention they need.Book your place now as places are filling up. We also have a deal if you want to attend the two classes. Each course lasts for 6 weeks and costs €60. If youwant to attend both the Tuesday and Thursday it will be €100 for the two classes.Get in touch today!!

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Do right and take care of others was the philosophy of Luis “Louie” Montoya Sr., a retired Los Angeles County marshal. A resident of Sun Valley since 1956, Montoya died June 25 at age 77. “He was caring, fun, and he had integrity,” said son Luis Montoya Jr. “He was such a genuine person. He had a broad smile and made you feel comfortable, like a part of the family. “He adapted his life around us to give us guidance and to keep us out of trouble. I learned to have a real sense of family from him.” Luis Armando Montoya was born Nov. 2, 1927, in El Paso, Texas. He graduated from Bowie High School, where he was a track star, and attended the College of the Mines, now the University of Texas, El Paso. He married high school classmate Josefina Lucero in 1949. They moved to Sun Valley in 1956 and he went to work for the U.S. Postal Service. He became a county marshal in 1960 and retired in 1983 at the rank of sergeant. Montoya, who spoke both English and Spanish, coached Little League for eight years when his two sons were growing up. His sense of fair play was an inspiration to his teams. “When he was coaching he would play fair. If we thought other coaches were bending the rules, he would say, well, we’ll beat them anyway,” said son David Montoya. “His favorite saying was ‘Que sera, sera’ — what will be, will be. He was an advocate for helping people and that’s why he was called ‘Uncle Louie’ by so many people.” After his retirement, Montoya enjoyed being with his grandchildren, playing golf and traveling abroad and to Laughlin, Nev., and eating his wife’s chile rellenos. He was a longtime parishioner at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church in Sun Valley. “What did I learn from him? Right from wrong. It sounds trite but ‘right’ is an absolute,” said Luis Jr. “Even if nobody else knows, you know and God knows. You do what’s right.” In addition to his sons, Montoya is survived by five grandchildren and his brother, Robert. He was preceded in death by his wife, and by his daughter, Cecilia. A funeral was held Thursday at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, followed by burial at San Fernando Mission Cemetery. Arrangements were made by Utter McKinley San Fernando Mission Mortuary. — Holly Andres, (818) 713-3708 holly.andres@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Ison Named MVC Golfer of the Week

first_imgDespite playing in freezing, rainy and windy conditions, Ison, a senior from Edmond, Okla., fired a one-over-par, 73, to finish tied for 11th-place with a team-best total score of 148 (75-73) at the par-72, 7,239-yard layout at the Hawkeye Invitational.  He helped lead Drake to a sixth-place finish at the event that featured a combined seven Big Ten and Big 12 teams.
