Ronaldo awarded the template with an Iphone and two plane tickets

first_imgThe president of Real Valladolid, Ronaldo Nazario, is not a leader to use. His experience as an elite player leads him to have a series of details with his players that many others would like for himself. The last one was, according to the LA8 RTCYL journalist, Marina Marcos, in EsRadio, the gift of an Iphone and a double plane ticket after winning on February 23 against Espanyol (2-1), a very important victory in the blanquivioletas aspirations to save the category. It must be remembered, in fact, that an airline company sponsors the Valladolid club. Remember that it is not the first time that the top shareholder of the club rewards the staff. Last season, after achieving salvation, he invited the entire staff to a multi-day trip to Ibiza on vacation.last_img read more

No. 1 pick Fultz scores 10 points in 1st game since October

first_img“That is a great unknown,” team president Bryan Colangelo said. “I’m not sure I have the answer. We will have to … certainly not judge tonight as the sole case of what to expect going forward.”Fultz checked in to a standing ovation with 2:54 left in the first quarter and drove down the baseline for a quick basket. But Fultz — whose awkward shooting form made him a punchline in the NBA — fired an airball later in the quarter.Perhaps trying to force his shot too much, Fultz also had two shots blocked on the same possession. He was a pedestrian 1 for 4 with three assists in the first half.Fultz scored two baskets in the third quarter, missed a spin move in the lane and had another shot blocked.“It was a little bit of excitement and little bit of just like, I gotta help the team,” Fultz said. “Once I stepped on the floor, it felt great just to be back out there with my brothers.”He did not shoot a 3-pointer or attempt a free-throw. It was his gruesome, clunky form at the line that got him mocked on social media.“That’s what the media’s job is, to try to do what they have to do to get paid,” Fultz said.The fans hardly seemed to care.Fultz was cheered each time he touched the ball, and they went wild when he sank two jumpers late in the game. The 6-foot-4 guard out of Washington just may have a significant impact after all in the postseason.“I love these guys. They’re my guys,” Fultz said. “I’m just trying to be the best teammate I can possibly be.” “Just woke up and it was that day,” he said.His next two answers were as empty as his stat line since October.Did he do something to hurt his shoulder or just feel soreness?Fultz rubbed his face and stared straight without talking and grabbed a towel someone tossed him. His wiped his face during a few more seconds of awkward silence.Why not talk about the injury?Blank stare.Fultz sparked the 76ers at times in actions, certainly not words, in a reserve role.“He looked confident,” coach Brett Brown said. “I thought it was a real, sort of bold, gutsy effort that he made given where he was now where he is.”The 19-year-old Fultz played the 76ers’ first four games of the season before he was ruled out indefinitely in October with soreness and a scapular muscle imbalance in the shoulder.The Sixers aren’t sure what they’ll get out of Fultz as they push toward 50 wins.

Fly Jamaica promises repayment to passengers next week

first_imgThe Competition and Consumer Affairs Commission (CCAC) has been forced to intervene in the situation with Fly Jamaica and its passengers, as the airline has failed to begin payments to their inconvenienced customers, since the crash-landing of the Boeing 757 aircraft on November 9, last year.The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of CCAC, Allison Parker on Tuesday told Guyana Times on Wednesday that the airline was recently written to by the Commission, after it received several complaints from passengers. She said the airline has since assured the Commission that it will begin repayments in the new week.She however noted that Fly Jamaica had also made a similar commitment to begin reimbursements since February. Parker explained that the airline would be summoned to a meeting should it fails to meet this most recent promise. She added that if the commitment is not met then the next move would be for the matter to be brought to the attention of CCAC’s Commissioners who will deliberate on the way forward.It has been well over four months since a Fly Jamaica aircraft, destined for Toronto, Canada, crash-landed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) in Timehri, East Bank Demerara, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded, and who are yet to be reimbursed.Passengers, who not only were onboard the crashed aircraft, but others who booked their flights ahead of their actual travel date, are also still waiting in suspense for their monies to be refunded.Several fuming passengers reached out to this publication as recent as Friday last and complained that although they were promised a refund by the end of last month, they are still waiting with no word from the company.One person said she contacted the travel agent with whom she booked the flight but was informed that the agents are also awaiting word from Fly Jamaica on the matter.Meanwhile, another passenger explained that he was promised that payments would have commenced since last month, however, there is no sign of the airline moving towards this.Other affected passengers have turned to social media to complain of the customer service being provided by Fly Jamaica, as telephone calls to the airline are seemingly going unanswered. Persistent persons have said they would have exhausted their efforts to contact the local office, only for their calls to be forwarded to voicemail and answering machines.A representative from the airline recently told sections of the media that it was considering resuming services by mid-March.last_img read more

Second hospital for city?

first_imgThe council is expected to approve a consultant contract for the new study on Tuesday. Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital serves 680 square miles of rapidly growing suburbia, and hospital President Roger Seaver says city approval for the master plan is needed for Newhall Memorial to remain the predominant provider of acute services in the valley. Santa Clarita planning commissioners last fall approved the plan, which allows for tripling the size of the nearly 333,000-square-foot campus. But a coalition of residents questioned whether the plan included an adequate balance of hospital and medical office space, and City Councilman Bob Kellar called for an independent study. The council is expected to approve a $47,500 contract with Atlanta-based Kurt Salmon and Associates Inc., with Newhall Memorial paying about $40,000 of that. SANTA CLARITA – With a fast-growing population and rising demand for health care, city officials are poised this week to seek a broader independent review of Newhall Memorial Hospital’s controversial proposed master plan. While the city initially had planned to review only how the 217-bed facility would be built out over the next 25 years, the new focus will include whether other hospitals also might be planning to build in Santa Clarita. And the timing appears right: Providence Holy Cross Medical Center said last week that it is considering buying a roughly 38-acre site in the Santa Clarita Valley just beyond city limits. “The city’s challenge here is to balance the land use issues – traffic, noise, quality of life … with the long-term health care issues,” said Paul Brotzman, the city’s director of Community Development. Patrick Smyth, senior manager overseeing the study, said his company works for top hospitals nationwide. “We’re going to provide an objective, unbiased perspective,” he said. Meanwhile, Providence Holy Cross has begun negotiating for property owned by Newhall Land and Farming Co. just outside city limits that would be suitable for a 200-bed hospital. “Nothing has been finalized because of entitlement issues,” said Kerry Carmody, an administrator for Providence Holy Cross. Providence recently opened a $47 million outpatient medical facility near Newhall Memorial and is spending roughly $115 million for a 101-bed expansion of its Mission Hills facility. Seaver and others said the region’s growth would be able to support two hospitals. “The numbers suggest if the projected population goes to 450,000 or more, the aging of the population occurs as we predicted and hospital trends stay similar to today, that suggests (there is room for) up to two hospitals in the Santa Clarita Valley,” Seaver said. Still, development is unlikely to come quickly. Hospital construction costs are estimated at $1.5 million a bed, and the approval process can stretch to seven years. Eastside community members – fed up with traffic jams and burgeoning development – have pushed for a hospital in their area. Carmody said completion of the cross-valley connector through the city could make the potential site accessible for all. Seaver said Newhall Memorial is not pursuing a second site but would not rule it out in the future. “It’s premature for us to consider a second site. The master plan is our focus, and the deficit in needs is our focus,” he said. “I have committed to others after we’ve achieved the short-run planning objectives; it’s possible we would then look at the timing and needs for a second site.” (661) 257-5255 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Device explodes on car in Las Vegas casino parking lot

first_imgLAS VEGAS – A device left in a casino parking garage exploded early Monday, killing a hotel employee who picked it up, authorities said. The man was removing the device from atop a car when it exploded shortly after 4 a.m. on the second floor of a parking behind the Luxor hotel-casino, said Officer Bill Cassell, a police spokesman. He declined to describe the device, but said initial reports that it was a backpack were wrong. Police said the blast was not a terrorist act but an apparent murder of a Luxor employee. No threat had been made against the Luxor, Cassell said. “We believe the victim of this event was the intended target,” Cassell said. He said another hotel employee narrowly escaped injury when the device exploded. Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were involved in the investigation, said ATF Special Agent Nina Delgadillo, regional spokeswoman for the agency in San Francisco.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Gordon Absher, a spokesman for MGM Mirage Inc., which owns the Luxor, said he could not confirm that the victim was an employee. Aerial video showed no apparent damage to the parking structure, where entrances were blocked while police, firefighters and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents investigated. There was little damage around the vehicle and the hotel was not evacuated, police and a hotel official said. Cassell said the case was being investigated as “a homicide with an unusual weapon.” The Luxor, a pyramid-shaped hotel at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip, has more than 4,000 rooms and 6,000 employees. last_img read more

Russian WCup stadium finally gets its grass

first_img0Shares0000Workers in Samara prepared to install the pitch last August, but the grass is only now ready to be laid © AFP/File / Mladen ANTONOVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Apr 14 – Russia’s perpetually late World Cup stadium in Samara had some good news to report exactly two months before kickoff: it is finally getting its grass.Twelve gleaming white lorries filled with rolls of the precious pitch arrived Saturday in the Volga River city from Germany. Photographs proudly tweeted by the regional administration also showed nine construction crane-type objects identified as “artificial suns” stationed outside the stadium.They will be suspended a few feet above the pitch once the grass is rolled out and start shining as much light as possible so that everything sticks in place.“The nine ‘artificial suns’ will warm up the grass so that it gets accustomed to Samara’s soil as quickly as possible,” the administration said.How long that takes will go a long way in deciding whether Russia has a big mess on its hands when the games begin on June 14.Russia is sparing no expense as it prepares to host the international football extravaganza at the height of a new spike in diplomatic hostilities with the West.More than $13 billion (10.5 billion euros) are officially going into stadium construction and refurbishments for the 11 host cities.Each is getting a new or refurbished airport and repaved roads. Hotels are being built in places few foreign visitors ever venture.The first World Cup to reach the former Soviet Union is meant to show off Russia’s might at every turn.But details, like the absence of grass at one of the arenas, threaten to scuttle those plans.Samara has been plagued by problems since construction began four years ago.Developers had to abandon plans to build a glass dome that looked like a flying saucer because it simply cost too much.The time it took to come up with a more budget-friendly alternative delayed development by nearly six months.The government filed a lawsuit — one of four against stadium builders across Russia — over the delay.The plan for the fancy German grass was drafted in the halcyon days when time was not an issue.The green stuff was meant to arrive before the Russian winter and take root during spring.But the stadium was not ready and there was no turning back by the time one the coldest Januaries on record stalled construction for another three months.Workers will be hoping that the heating lamps work well enough to make the pitch playable by the first test game on April 28.Samara is due to host its first World Cup match when Coast Rica and Serbia play on June 17.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Liverpool and Arsenal target ‘going nowhere’

first_img Ignacio Camacho Liverpool and Arsenal target Ignacio Camacho is going nowhere this month, according to Malaga’s sporting director Mario Husillos.Both Premier League clubs are in the market for defensive midfielders and have been linked with tough-tackling ‘Nacho’ Camacho.Husillos has revealed that offers have been made for the Spain international, 24, but he says Malaga will resist selling him during the January window.“There are offers for Camacho,” he told Canal Plus. “He is a national team player and a luxury that we are enjoying.“Big European teams have asked about him, but in this market he is not going to leave.“[I hope that he] stays for many years, he has a contract for four more seasons.

first_imgFianna Fáil has reiterated its call for an increase in Garda numbers in the County following a meeting this week with Garda representatives to discuss crime in border areas.Deputy Charlie McConalogue and Fianna Fáil Councillors Paul Canning, Gerry Crawford and Patrick McGowan have met with Superintendent Michael Finnan and Inspector David Kelly in Letterkenny to highlight community concern about crime and policing in border areas.In a joint statement, the Fianna Fáil representatives commended the Gardaí for their recent work in making arrests following a number of burglaries in the Lifford, Raphoe, Manorcunningham and St Johnston areas. However, they re-iterated their belief that additional resources must be allocated to border areas in order to deter crime in the county.“The local Garda force must be commended for their work in the investigations following recent burglaries in East Donegal. However, as a party we feel that the drop in Garda numbers in the County is making it more difficult to have the level of Garda presence needed in border areas to prevent and deter criminal activity. As Garda numbers have fallen, instances of serious burglaries have increased. This is not a co-incidence.”Backing up the party’s calls for additional resources, Deputy McConalogue has outlined figures released to him in Parliamentary Replies from the Minister for Justice showing the sharp decline in the force over the last number of years“In 2008, the Donegal force was at an all-time high of 488 personnel. As of June 2014, there were 404 personnel. Through the same period, eight stations have been closed across the County and many Garda stations are left struggling for essential resources such as enough Garda cars to enable them to effectively police local areas. “Many Garda Stations are also struggling to reliably open for advertised public office hours as the staff numbers are not always available. The loss of 84 guards over six years means a real drop of visible presence and policing on the ground and the Minister must work with the Garda Commissioner to ensure that additional resources are allocated to our County.“While the Gardaí in the County are doing their best with the resources they have it is absolutely clear that the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald must urgently take action to bring forward Garda recruitment and bring about an increase in Garda numbers in the County and in border areas,” concluded the Fianna Fáil representatives. FIANNA FAIL DEMANDS MORE GARDAI AFTER MEETING WITH DONEGAL TOP BRASS was last modified: July 25th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalfianna failGardailast_img read more
