Olga García, with no place at Atleti

first_imgOlga garcia (27 years) has been one of the great forgotten figures of this season at the First Iberdrola. The Catalan attacker has hardly counted with minutes in Atlético de Madrid, where she has been one of the players that minutes (172 minutes distributed in all competitions) has played. His little shoot seems to push the ex-Barça to search for a new destination in which to find your best level again. In this line appear names of large-caliber equipment such as Real Madrid, who would have set his sights on the Spanish international to profile his first female squad. Remember that Olga garcia was the second top scorer (12 points) from Atleti in the previous campaign, in which he showed his great punch despite being a substitute. However, his great goalscoring nose has not been taken into account by the three coaches who have gone through Atleti this season and not even the lack of goal the team has given opportunities on the green to the Barcelona footballer.Olga García arrived at Atlético in the summer of 2018 after growing up in quarry of Barcelona. The international signed until 2020 with the rojiblancas, however, has not managed to get ownership in the mattress set. Before the rojiblanco club, the Catalan forward spent fourteen successful seasons in ranks of Barça, where he raised two Leagues and four Queen’s Cups. Also played two seasons in Levante, another of the greats of Spanish women’s football, and has been international with the Selection in sixteen games. Without a doubt, his career does not leave anyone indifferent.last_img read more

Evans eyeing special time

first_img “Preparation so far has been good. I am not looking on times that my competitors have done as I am focusing on my own race. Indoors I had one of the slowest times among the competitors, but in the end, I finished my season with a personal best and one of the top times in the world and hoping for the same on Saturday as this will put me in a good position for the National Senior Championships,” she added. “I have competed in two 100 metres races so far this season, doing 11.17 seconds in a positive 2.1 metres per second wind and 11.49 in a massive negative wind, and I am hoping that the conditions will be OK on Saturday so I can post a special time,” she concluded. Evans will face the likes of her countrywomen Kerron Stewart, Christania Williams and Schillone Calvert-Powell, along with the American Allyson Felix, Jenna Prandini and Morolake Akinosun and Trinidad and Tobago’s Michelle -Lee Ahye. AFTER an outstanding indoor season, Sprntec’s Gayon Evans will be hoping to build on her new-found confidence when she lines up in the women’s 100 metres at Saturday”s Jamaica International Invitational meet inside the National Stadium. The former Edwin Allen High student was eighth in the event a year ago and expects to much better this year. “I am looking forward to the expected great competition, and I am hoping to do very well as my confidence is still high coming off a very good indoor season,” she said. Evans thinks she is ready for something special, but declined to predict a time. Good preparationlast_img read more

Govt has no respect for workers – MP tells Berbicians

first_imgAssistant General Secretary of GAWU, Aslim SinghMember of Parliament, Dr Vishwa MahadeoA section of workers from Blairmont and Albion Sugar EstatesA section of workers from Blairmont and Albion Sugar EstatesMember of Parliament, Dr Vishwa Mahadeo told hundreds of Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corenyne) workers that Government has no respect for workers.The statement was made as he addressed workers at a Labour Day rally organised by the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) held at the Port Mourant Community Centre.Mahadeo said he based his conclusion on Government’s four-year track record, which has been disappointing, adding that one of the first things that Government did after taking office was to abolish the Labour Ministry and to reduce it to a department.“A lot of us thought at that time that it was no big deal, but that was a signal as to how workers will be treated in the ensuing years,” Mahadeo explained.He said the next move that was a slap in the face for workers was when Government Ministers gave themselves hundreds of thousands of dollars in salary increases while public servants and other workers were forced to take to the streets before they received meager increases.“They (workers) were sent home just because they were perceived to be supportive of another political party and in most cases, they were replaced by persons who had no qualifications for the jobs they were employed to do.”That was followed by massive dismissal of workers across. This included the closure of several sugar estates, leaving thousands jobless.The parliamentarian noted that in Guyana’s history, never had there been an instance where over 7000 workers were fired. He added that sending home those workers in both Demerara and Berbice resulted in many in the Private Sector becoming jobless while some businesses have been forced to downsize and also send home workers while others have reduced the amount of days workers earn.Meanwhile, GAWU urged workers to take stock of what is still to be realised.Assistant General Secretary of GAWU, Aslim Singh said workers no longer are seen as important as they should be.Noting that the former Ministry of Labour which has now been reduced to a department under the current Administration, Singh said it is unacceptable and a matter which the trade unions movement has on more than one occasion expressed vexations but sadly it has fallen on the deft ears of those in charge.“Comrades, on this May Day it is simply inexcusable that in the birthplace of trade unionism in the British colonial empire, there is no longer a Ministry of Labour; the Ministry which existed up to May 2015.He told the workers if they stand together they will score many gains and receive the respect they deserve.“As we observe Labour Day 2019, we cannot ignore the heavy burdens of the high cost of living. In recent years, the tentacles of taxation have reached several essential goods and services apart from other impositions that have been levelled and served to mount cost of living.”Over the last year, he added, those burdens became weightier “as we have had to contend with increased water rates and higher public transportation costs. Clearly, our workers are beleaguered and in need of help and reprieve as they struggle to keep their heads above the proverbial waterline. Comrades almost daily, we hear and need about people being victims of banditry, robbery and other forms of crime. It seems to us that crime has been more pervasive and those engaged in such acts have become more brazen.”The situation, the Assistant General Secretary noted, is not a healthy one an ddoes not augur well for the people of this country who are generally terrified at this time.last_img read more

$106,000 for northeast B.C. adult literacy programs

first_imgVirk points out that more education could mean management jobs later in life when labour is no longer an option, and suggests looking at dual credit programs instead of dropping out. At the same time, the Fort Nelson Family Literacy Drop In Learning Centre and the Dawson Creek CALP received around $22,000 each. All of the funded programs help adult learners with everything from basic literacy to getting their high school diploma. Speaking in Dawson Creek, Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk maintains that adult education can be just as important as kindergarten to grade 12. “How else can you help your kids through school if you can read well yourself?” he asks. “So this is the skills for that adult learner to help themselves, get that better job, perhaps go back to college, but also to help their kids make do with their own homework.” – Advertisement -Virk is touring Northern Lights College campuses in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge this week. He’s also taking the opportunity to stress the importance of improving high school graduation rates, especially in the Peace Region, where it can be tempting for teenagers to leave early for a job. “I know there’s sometimes high paying jobs available in industry right away,” he admits. “The money may be good when you’re young, but maybe when you’re 35 or 40 years old you’re going to wish you had taken a little bit more school for when you’re not as tough anymore.” Advertisementlast_img read more

DONEGAL MAN SENT FOR TRIAL ACCUSED OF GIVING ILLEGAL LOANS TO QUINN FAMILY

first_imgA CO Donegal man has been sent for trial, accused of giving illegal loans to Sean Quinn’s family which later led to the collapse of the Quinn empire.Willie McAteer, 61, is the former Finance Director with Anglo Irish Bank.Former chairman and chief executive Seán FitzPatrick and the bank’s former Managing Director in Ireland Patrick Whelan, 50, also appeared in court in Dublin today to face the same charges.

Dreams of Planetary Oceans Dry Up

first_imgAstrobiologists like oceans.  The vision of life evolving on Earth in a primordial soup drives the quest to find liquid on other worlds.  It doesn’t have to be liquid water: just liquid that stimulates the imagination with visions of exotic life.  Two solar system bodies once considered prime candidates for ocean front property, though, have recently dried up substantially, reducing their value as astrobiological real estate.Titan:  A JPL press release painted a rosy picture for realtors looking at Titan’s lakefront property, after Nature1 wrote up the scientific results of a July flyby by Cassini (see also the comments by Christophe Sotin2).  Though Sotin boasted “Titan’s lost seas found,” those who know the history of the region must sigh over the long-lost global ocean that was once thought to exist on this huge Saturnian moon (see Science 12/16/1983).3  In 1983, Titan expert Jonathan Lunine and team “proposed that Saturn’s satellite Titan is covered by an ocean one to several kilometers deep consisting mainly of ethane.”  Cassini found, on the contrary, that the bulk of Titan is crisscrossed by sand dunes (05/04/2006).  Scientists are pretty sure now that the lakes, only found between the 70th and 83rd parallel north, have some liquid in them.  As to what happened to the vast oceans of liquid ethane and methane thought to have accumulated over 4.5 billion years, they can only speculate that it went underground or glommed onto solid particles (10/18/2006).  Cassini is incapable of directly confirming that possibility.Mars:  Few probably heard the whimper about Mars water expressed in Science last week.4  In the heyday of early science results from the Mars Exploration Rovers, scientists trumpeted the possibility of extensive and persistent oceans of water in the Martian past (12/20/2004, 08/06/2004, 04/12/2004, 01/03/2004).  These days?  Here’s what was overheard about “a nastier early Mars” at last month’s meetings of the American Geophysical Union (AGU):When the Opportunity rover sent back signs of water early in martian history, the usual descriptor was “shallow salty seas.”  Sounded nice and cozy for any early martian life.  But at a press conference at the meeting, rover science team leader Steven Squyres of Cornell University made a point of spelling out the team’s best current understanding of early Mars, which is much less encouraging.  “At the surface, this was primarily an arid environment,” he said.  Only occasionally, here and there, would puddles of salty, acidic groundwater form between dunes of salt sand.  As the team’s latest paper puts it, “dominantly arid, acidic, and oxidizing” environmental conditions would have posed “significant challenges to the origin of life.”  (See 10/30/2006).  Best the Martian realtors can advertise now are small, localized waterparks (12/06/2006).Jupiter’s moon Europa remains as a prime candidate for a vast under-ice ocean that might harbor exotic life.  The other large Galilean satellites might have deep water, but it’s probably too deep to encourage astrobiologists.  The geysers of Enceladus might not require liquid water (see 12/15/2006, last par.).  As waterfront real estate shrinks, the stakes for astrobiology marketing skyrocket.1Stofan et al., “The lakes of Titan,” Nature 445, 61-64 (4 January 2007) | doi:10.1038/nature05438.2Christophe Sotin, “Planetary science: Titan’s lost seas found,” Nature 445, 29-30 (4 January 2007) | doi:10.1038/445029a.3Lunine et al., “Ethane Ocean on Titan,” Science 16 December 1983: Vol. 222. no. 4629, pp. 1229 – 1230, DOI: 10.1126/science.222.4629.1229.4Richard A.
