The 104 days without Giménez

first_imgFrom the 2015-16 season, the one in which, after the departure of Miranda, Giménez took a step forward To become the Godin couple, both the heads of the rojiblanca defense, has spent 327 days injured, almost a year, 60 games, as a full season. With Atlético he has not played since last January 12, in the Spanish Super Cup, the final against Real Madrid. In the extension he had to be replaced and lived the last minutes and penalties from the bench, with the twins covered in two ice packs that covered his entire muscle. He hasn’t returned yet. Savic, suffering from various muscle problems also at the beginning of the season, began playing next to Felipe and sat down Beautiful (who turned and more than in the absence of both) and causes Giménez to remain seated. Expeditive, although without bragging, complies, it is not complicated. Simeone keeps him. Giménez awaits your opportunity. Atlético, without Giménez 17 games in 2019-20The center is one of the players most loved by the fans. For performance, for personality, for caste, because he arrived seven seasons ago at the club and it is as if he were a youth player although his quarry was Danube, there in Uruguay, his land, his team. Last summer, after the departure of Godín, Griezmann and Juanfran, three of the four captains, Simeone called three other players of his squad. They would be the heirs. Gimenez was among them. He is the third captain. But he has barely been able to put that ‘C’ on his arm. He has barely been able to play. 104 days have been injured this season. 17 games out for those injuries that crush his legs and perch on his head like black clouds. When he manages to have continuity, when they leave, he is one of the best centers in the world. And Atlético in all those games, in these 104 days, has not stopped missing his head on the grass: his strength in the stopped ball. Without Giménez he loses it in the areas, and that is Felipe, but it is not Giménez, who seems to nod with his head, jump with the body, although in reality he does it like everything: with the soul. José María Giménez returned to Atlético’s list against Sevilla. For now. Simeone today, before the match, you must make a discard. The Uruguayan missed the game against Espanyol because of discomfort in one knee. His absence on the list was a surprise, although this season that word (discomfort, injury) again fly over his head like black clouds. Heir of Godín, by blood, charisma and number (the ‘2’ of Pharaoh now he looks on his back), when the injuries seemed overcome, last season he seemed to have found a remedy, food, yoga, this 2019-20 has already hit him four times. The last of those minor inconveniences that didn’t go over, on Tuesday I was training, but that cause him to have played only 42% of the minutes, 1,283 ‘, 12 games. 29 is Felipe. 2,581 minutes. last_img read more

Milan Mandaric: Leicester’s Thai owners are proud people – they’re not sellers!

first_imgMilan Mandaric believes the key to Leicester City’s stunning Premier League title win was ‘having a team of brothers’.And the former Foxes chief insists the club’s current Thai owners will do everything in their power to resist selling off their top stars this summer.Leicester have completed arguably the greatest shock in sporting history by beating the Premier League’s richest teams to the top flight crown – with the side set to lift the trophy after their final home game of the season against Everton on Saturday.The Foxes’ incredible title bid may have been sparked by the arrival of manager Claudio Ranieri last summer, but their rise to the top began in 2009 when, under Mandaric, they won the League One title with Nigel Pearson as manager.And while Mandaric is now supporting the club from afar, the former chief has told talkSPORT he is ‘happy and proud’ for the club and ecstatic for their faithful supporters.“It’s a great thing, a very special one-in-a-lifetime moment”, he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“It’s incredible and it really shows also that money is not always everything. You see other big clubs who have spent £200million per season, and look where they are. Then we have the mighty Leicester spending little and winning the title! I’m so happy and proud.“I started something there when the club were in difficulties in League One, but we sorted it. I always said we’d sell the club one day, but would only sell to the right people, and I’m so happy for those great supporters with what’s happened there this season.“Can they repeat this next season? It will be difficult, but they’ve achieved something this year that nobody else has achieved.“I think if they finish in the top ten next season, that would still be a great achievement for Leicester.”Only a matter of days have passed since the confirmation of Leicester’s unbelievable triumph – they are still yet to lift the trophy – and already teams are reportedly planning to plunder the Foxes squad of their stars.Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante have both been strongly linked with moves away, but Mandaric insists the club’s Thai owners will pull out all the stops to keep the title-winning side together for next season’s championship defence.“These owners are not sellers,” he added.“They are very proud people and they will try to do everything to keep their best players and try to continue.“The team have a fighting spirit and the key thing is that Ranieri and all his staff stay. They’ve got tremendous staff at Leicester, they’re good people and they will be targeted by other clubs now, so it’s important the club keep everyone.“They care for each other and have been like a team of brothers this season.”last_img read more

CRIME CRISIS: ANOTHER MAJOR BURGLARY AS GARDAI REJECT ROSTERING CLAIMS

first_imgThere has been ANOTHER major burglary in the Newtowncunningham area. The local county council compound was broken into overnight and equipment was taken.It is believed doors were smashed and an undisclosed materials taken by a gang.A full inventory is now being taken by council staff to see what the thieves stole.It comes as Gardai reject claims that there is not enough Garda patrols in the area. Supt Vincent O’Brien said yesterday that he was satisfied with the rostering systems along the border areas.However local Fianna Fail county councillor Paul Canning described the situation as “ridiculous.”“People in the area are simply not happy with the Garda cover and that’s a fact. That’s what I’m hearing on the ground.“Donegal is an island on its own and it is not adequately covered by Gardai. The many recent incidents in this area have shown that.“We need an increase in manpower not a review of the situation. We need Gardai on the ground to tackle this increase in vandalism and robberies,” he said. CRIME CRISIS: ANOTHER MAJOR BURGLARY AS GARDAI REJECT ROSTERING CLAIMS was last modified: July 6th, 2012 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:COUNCIL DEPOTNewtowncunninghamPaul Canninglast_img read more

Seniors meet at holiday tables

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals “I think it is the nicest thing for senior citizens, and we get together here with different senior centers and it is just like a homecoming,” she said. “(And) we said we’ll meet again, God willing, next year.” The Rotary Club helped pay for the event, and the restaurant donated food, as did its suppliers and a local church. City Councilman Dennis Zine attended the event and said he would like to get corporate sponsorship to help seniors on Thanksgiving. “See, downtown has a huge homeless population; we have a huge senior population,” Zine said. “So we want to take care of the needs in the community.” At the other end of the Valley, volunteers served meals to about 300 people in need at Temple Beth Hillel in Valley Village. Volunteer drivers carted out another 300 meals so needy families could enjoy Thanksgiving at home. The Reform synagogue also collects food in its basement and feeds 5,000 people a month with the help of six other Christian and Jewish congregations. As usual, the kitchen at the Sagebrush Cantina was pumping out food Thursday, but this time the diners ate for free. The restaurant on the border between the West San Fernando Valley and Calabasas served a Thanksgiving feast to about 500 seniors, with the help of the Calabasas/Agoura Hills Rotary Club and youths from a church group and a high school. “The Rotary Club people, the young people are oh-so-friendly,” said Bobbie Powell, who came with other seniors from Owensmouth Garden in Woodland Hills. “And we’re sitting out here in the sunshine. Where else can you do that except California?” Emmi De Waard, 78, a retired industrial photographer, also liked the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey, cranberry sauce and potatoes. “It’s predicated on the notion that the future health and welfare of the Jewish community is tied up inextricably with the health and welfare of the rest of the world,” Rabbi Jim Kaufman said. Along with other volunteers, Keith Gurian, 51, of Granada Hills started working in the synagogue’s kitchen Sunday to get ready for Thursday’s event. With volunteers working nearly 10 hours Sunday and coming in after work for nearly eight hours both Monday and Tuesday, the kitchen turned out 900 pounds of turkey. “Just sweat and burn,” Gurian said, showing off a pair of hash marks he accidentally burned into his left forearm while volunteering this week. Niranjala Rodrigo came to the United States three years ago from Sri Lanka and was enjoying her first traditional Thanksgiving meal, along with her husband, her three children and her mother. “This day, I think people (are) happy, and some family come all together at the table,” she said. “It’s (a) very nice time.” World War II veteran Bernard J. Cohen, 85, of North Hollywood also enjoyed the meal. During the war, the plane he was in was shot down in 1944, crashing into the ocean near New Guinea. “They told me in Brisbane, Australia, (during treatment) that I was going to survive the war and come back and die of old age,” he said, “but they never told me what old age was.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The REA Average House Price Survey, released today, concentrates on the actual sale price of Ireland’s typical stock home, giving an up-to-date picture of the second-hand property market to the close of last week.“Supply of three-bed semi-detached homes across the county is limited,” said Paul McElhinney of REA McElhinney in Milford, where an average three-bed semi costs €95,000 and remains on the market for six weeks.“We are seeing that market demand for what is available is fair.”The average semi-detached house nationally now costs €236,028, the latest REA Average House Price Survey has found – a rise of 0.05% on the first three months of 2019.Donegal house prices are lowest in Ireland – REA was last modified: June 24th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more

Joule of South Africa’s highway

first_img “Optimal Energy is capitalising on South Africa’s technological prowess, its track record of building premium cars for the export market, the current sea of change in transport technology brought about by climate change, pollution and energy security issues, and the immense progress in battery technology,” Meiring told Sapa. After the pilot fleet is launched, the company plans to begin mass production in 2012. Meiring said this meant the company would not be hindered by the current economic situation, adding that there was “enormous interest” in the Joule. “Current market conditions are slowing down the traditional manufacturers’ efforts while the market, especially for clean vehicles, is predicted to be in a strong upward swing from 2012 onwards.” The zero-emission Joule is a six-seater multi-purpose vehicle designed by Cape Town-based Optimal Energy in association with legendary South African-born automotive designer Keith Helfet. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Zero emissions The Joule: it’s clean, it’s mean – and it’s good-looking, to boot! Click arrow to play video. The chassis of the Joule has been designed to accommodate two large-cell lithium ion battery packs which use chemistry similar to that used in mobile phones and laptop computers. SAinfo reporter and BuaNewscenter_img Using a normal 220 Volt home outlet and the Joule’s onboard charger, it takes approximately seven hours to recharge the Joule’s battery for a 200km driving range, with two packs providing 400km in total. Electric cars use about 20 percent of the energy that conventional cars use, meaning that the total emissions are much less. And with the global trend of electricity generation becoming “cleaner”, the emissions generated by electric cars will continue to shrink. The Joule was unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, and recently displayed at a climate change conference in Johannesburg. Studies show that 99 percent of urban users drive less than 150 kilometres a day. Optimal Energy recommends that only one battery pack is necessary to power the Joule. 6 April 2009 A pilot fleet of South African-made electric cars are due to hit the country’s roads by 2010, the company which builds them said on Thursday. Optimal Energy, the company which manufactures the electric-powered Joule, has received financial backing from the Department of Science and Technology and issued shares to the Industrial Development Corporation, spokeswoman Diana Blake told the South African Press Assocation (Sapa). “This investment helps us to drive the industrialisation process, taking us to the next level,” Optimal Energy CEO Kobus Meiring said.last_img read more

There is No Perfect VP of Sales and Marketing

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting dana oshiro Tags:#start#startups Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img Sales and marketing are not the same thing. It’s true they both deal with relationship management and it’s true that neither of these job descriptions require hardcore engineering, but just because they’re both in the realm of words over code does not mean that they are the same. At the risk of muddling your mind with HR jargon, the core competencies of a marketer are very different from those of a sales person. Surprisingly, many startup CEOs insist on hiring for a VP of Sales and Marketing position. If you’re the VP of sales and marketing for your company, this article is not about how you aren’t doing your job properly. In fact, it’s about how you’re doing the job of two separate people and shouldn’t be. Interwest investor Bruce Cleveland recently wrote an article entitled, In Search of the Mythical VP Sales and Marketing where he defines the separate domains of sales and marketing. Says Cleveland, “Sales and Marketing are vastly different functions that require substantially different personalities, skills, and decades of experience to master…A CEO who doesn’t understand this basic fact, or doesn’t believe it, is not a CEO I want to invest in.” Explains Cleveland, a sales person understands the inner workings of B2B deal probabilities and the short term requirements to increase deal flow. Meanwhile, marketing people look at the landscape from a longterm perspective and lay the groundwork for sales through analyst, media and web leads generation. Essentially, sales people are great oral one-on-one communicators and marketers are great written mass communicators. He writes, ” I have found that the CEO who makes this serious mistake hasn’t worked with someone who is an excellent Marketer and therefore discounts the role it plays.” With expertise in the Software as a Service space, it’s interesting that Cleveland believes the marketing role is the one that gets tacked on at the last minute. While sales offers obvious measurement through direct revenue generation, marketing tends to have a less clear set of metrics.Cleveland explains that “today’s head of Marketing must be an excellent demand creator (the “owner” of future revenue) through sales-ready leads.” Essentially he believes that the marketer’s job is to increase perceived value and generate demand on a massive scale in order to grease the wheels of the sales team.
