first_imgJoão, right. In the 40th minute Simeone ordered Joao Felix to be placed on the right wing and in the second half the Portuguese started in the same position. And there he was defending until the 56th minute that the Cholo entered Vitolo through Herrera and João returned to the front next to Morata, Correa returned to the right wing, Vitolo got on the left wing and Saul went to the center with Thomas. In the 68th minute he was going to take out Marcos Llorente, but he stopped the change and took it out in 88 thinking about the extension. Marcos Llorente left for Lodi, passing Saul to the left back, his third demarcation of the game.Extension. That’s how Atlético was left to play the extra time: Oblak; Trippier, Felipe, Giménez, Saúl; Correa, Llorente, Thomas, Vitolo; Morata and João Félix. And after 8 minutes of the extension Giménez had to be injured and Savic entered. And after 10 minutes he took João Félix (he thought more about stopping Rodrygo and Vinicius than in the penalty shootout) and to take Arias from the left back and Saúl went to the right wing (fourth demarcation he occupied). Atlético finished: Oblak; Trippier, Savic, Felipe, Arias; Saul, Llorente, Thomas, Vitolo; Correa and Morata. And he could beat Madrid in three very well executed counterattacks, the last one that was cut off by Valverde when Morata was planted alone against Courtois. Then came the penalty lottery … Good pressure Simeone raised the game well. He took the team to pressure an assigned area and Madrid had a higher percentage of possession of the ball, but Atlético had controlled the game because neither Isco nor Modric nor Kroos had the ball in the end zone. Only when Valverde entered the right wing or when he progressed through his band Mendy Madrid created some danger and caused corners. Atlético only retreated when Madrid demanded. The system was 1-4-4-2 with Oblak; Trippier, Felipe, Giménez, Lodi; Correa, Herrera, Thomas, Saul; Morata and João Félix.For the bands. Atlético sought to counter Real Madrid attacking him by gangs. As Casemiro is left alone holding the team while the rest of the team goes to attack, the rapid orientation changes when he steals the ball to shake off the pressure after losing Madrid, it was a fast attack resource of Atlético to seek to make a two against one in the band.Profiling out. João Félix pressed the exit to Varane and Morata to Sergio Ramos. Both profiled the centrals to start the game with the sides and Saul and Korea closed the pass to Kroos, while Trippier and Lodi stayed hand in hand with Mendy and Carvajal. While Zidane tried to make two for one in a band by opening with Valverde and Modric and Isco next to the sides. Atlético defended higher and did very well without the ball and Madrid de Zidane defended with the ball and did not fret for the game as evidenced by the Mariano man-for-man exchange for Jovic. Simeone managed and minimized Madrid of the five Zidane midfielders.last_img read more

Back to where it all started

first_imgPhilippine senator and boxing hero Manny Pacquiao, left, and Argentine WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (AP Photo/Aaron Favila)No Freddie Roach. No Bob Arum. No pay-per-view dollars. No glitzy Las Vegas neon lights. No hyped up opponent. All there is is a legend, closer to the end of his career than to the start.Manny Pacquiao prepares for a fight that will dictate how the sun will continue to rise for the remainder of his career.ADVERTISEMENT Arum, now 84 and the top honcho of Top Rank, will be conspicuously absent as Pacquiao decided to go at it alone, his MP Promotions making its first major international foray.MP will instead be promoting the fight with Golden Boy Promotions, which handles Matthysse. Top Rank has reportedly been reduced to distributing the fight in the United States.Also, Pacquiao’s best friend and coach Buboy Fernandez will now be calling the shots from his corner in place of Roach, who has been head trainer since 2001. This marks the end of the duo that shook the boxing world—pound for pound, one division at a time—since pairing up to stun Lehlo Ledwaba and barge into mainstream boxing consciousness.Pacquiao will also be bringing a fight to Malaysia for the first time, and the majestic Petronas towers could be the backdrop to what could very well be Pacquiao’s final act of his career.Against an Argentine brawler who is a high-risk, high-reward proposition for the Filipino icon, Pacquiao will have to draw from what worked for him before: Talent, skill, hard work and the burning desire to prove his doubters wrong.ADVERTISEMENT “This fight will determine my future,” the Philippine senator has told media people during his preparation for the bout against Argentine Lucas Matthysse on July 15 in Kuala Lumpur.But while the result will largely factor into Pacquiao’s future schedule, the atmosphere surrounding his preparation smacks of nostalgia. A bulk of his preparation was spent in General Santos City, halfway around the world from the Wild Card Gym where he and renowned trainer used to plot the downfall of foes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’It has all the throwback feels, as if Pacquiao has returned to where he started.His showdown against the 35-year-old Matthysse marks the first time in many years that neither Arum nor Roach are key figures of his camp.

Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ ‘Practice game’ Remember how he was “not popular enough” to mix it up with Oscar De La Hoya? He crushed the Golden Boy in 2008. Or how he supposedly  wouldn’t be able to bring his punching power up to the lightweight ranks? He sent Ricky Hatton to dreamland in 2009. Or even how he was “too small” to engage Antonio Margarito in a slugfest? He rearranged the Mexican’s facial features in 2010.Pacquiao’s career reached its peak with a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but since then, he has struggled to find a big-name fighter for that one last big fight card.So he chose a dangerous one, instead—a slugger in Matthysse, who is also out to earn a piece of the spotlight Pacquiao has basked in for so long.At 39, Pacquiao hopes to reboot his career. One last shot at glory. One more chance at a marquee fight. One more opportunity to empty the streets.

first_imgDear Editor,The long awaited judgments and orders of the Caribbean Court of Justice finally were delivered on July 12, 2019.The nation’s wait is over.With regards to the GECOM case, the CCJ ruled thatPara 3 “….It is now a matter of the greatest public importance that the President and the Leader of the Opposition should, as soon as possible, embark upon and conclude the process of appointing a new GECOM Chairman. This imperative is now of the utmost urgency in light of our decision in the no confidence motion cases that the motion was validly passed thereby triggering the need for fresh general elections. The Court refers to the views we expressed at paragraphs 26 – 29 of our earlier judgment in this matter as a suitable frame of reference for the process leading to such an appointment.”With regards to the consolidated cases on the No Confidence Motion, the CCJ stated in Para 8;“ .. It is important, however, that the Court makes this point. In mandating that the Government shall remain in office notwithstanding its defeat and the resignation of the President and the Cabinet, Article 106 envisages that the tenure in office of the Cabinet, including the President, after the Government’s defeat, is on a different footing from that which existed prior to the vote of no confidence. Chancellor Cummings-Edwards, citing Hogg1, the Canadian constitutional expert, was right to note that:“…The government continues in office as a caretaker government or an interim government until the next elections ensue and a President is appointed (or reappointed) depending on the results of that election.”By convention, the government is expected to behave during this interim period as a caretaker and so restrain the exercise of its legal authority. It is this caretaker or interim role that explains the three month deadline, in the first instance, that the Article lays down, in principle, for the holding of the fresh elections”Furthermore Para 9 concludes that“ In all the circumstances, the Court makes the following declarations and orders:a) The provisions of Article 106(6) and (7) of the Constitution apply to a No Confidence motion;b) Thirty-three votes constitute a majority of the 65 member National Assembly;c) Mr. Charrandas Persaud was ineligible to be elected to the Assembly by virtue of his citizenship of Canada but his vote on the motion of no confidence was valid;d) Nothing in the anti-defection regime established at Article 156(3) of the Constitution rendered Mr. Persaud incapable of casting his vote on that motion in the manner in which he did;e) The National Assembly properly passed a motion of no confidence in the Government on 21 December 2018;f) Upon the passage of this motion of no confidence in the Government, the clear provisions of Article 106 immediately became engaged;”Regrettably, although the language of the Caribbean Court of Justice is unambiguously clear, the now caretaker government’s head, President Granger, in his Address to the Nation, following the CCJ declarations and orders, exposed his unwillingness to accept the ruling, despite him saying the contrary. In regurgitating what he had said in his Address to the Nation on June 19, 2019 with regards to (i) a contaminated list can vitiate the credibility of the elections and that (ii) GECOM has to advise the President on its readiness to conduct elections, he clearly was ignoring at best and contradicting at worst the CCJ ‘s judgment and orders of July12, 2019..But more telling was his accusation that the Leader of the Opposition had not reciprocated the government’s good faith efforts and “chose to put forward candidates for the post who have been rejected previously.” This is an astounding accusation as Mr. Granger himself on July 4th 2019 at his press conference following the meeting with the Leader of the Opposition announced that“… the Leader of the Opposition is free to submit names which have been already submitted in the three previous iterations and he has agreed to confirm those persons are still willing to have their names forwarded. So the names submitted before are not eliminated.”This statement accurately reflects the agreement of the meeting earlier on July 4, 2019, between the President and the Leader of the Opposition, on the resubmission of the 18 names originally submitted in 2017, “appropriately adjusted”, to commence the informal process and the President would advise which ones were “ not unacceptable” to him. Furthermore, the President was free to submit names informally for the consideration of Leader of the Opposition.Again at the July 4, 2019 press conference, President Granger re-affirmed…” yes l could make submissions, but in the final analysis, that submission has to come to me from the Leader of the Opposition, the CCJ has not taken away that role from the Leader of the Opposition and it has not taken away my prerogative to make a selection. Those have been preserved by the CCJ”.Either the President is suffering from amnesia or his spin-doctors are recklessly ignoring what he said previously?The President goes so far as to state that “ …the Leader of the Opposition rejected the idea of acting in a consensual manner.” This statement is palpably untrue. The President’s representatives rejected 6 of the 11 names submitted by the Leader of the Opposition and shortlisted 5 for which there was no clarity whether these were “not unacceptable” to the President. Thus, after 3 meetings there were 0 names of the 11 that were considered “not unacceptable’ to the President. Most surprising, his representatives could not confirm that even the 8 names submitted by the President were “no unacceptable’ to him! Thus, at that point, the reversion to meetings between the President and the Leader of the Opposition, without interlocutors, to ensure clarity was thought to be the only, best and right option at that time by the Leader of the Opposition’s representatives.Here is the evidence of who is acting in bad faith and the nation is not fooled.Following the CCJ judgment today, attempts have been made to make contact with the Director General Mr. Harmon and a message sent the afternoon of July 12, 2019 to indicate that the Leader of the Opposition is available to meet President Granger at any time during this weekend in to work on a list of names acceptable to both the Leader of the Opposition and the President in keeping with the art 161 (2) of the Constitution and Para 26-29 of the June 18, 2019 CCJ decision as directed by the CCJ on July 12, 2019.Then one has the AFC statement which appeared on the same afternoon, which echoes the President’s view that “it is GECOM that advises on the earliest date for holding credible elections. The AFC supports the holding of elections within the shortest possible time frame by GECOM.”It is not surprising that both deliberately or conveniently misrepresent and omit a critical section of the July 12th CCJ declaration at Para 5“The judiciary interprets the Constitution. But, as we intimated in our earlier judgment, these particular provisions {article 106(6) and (7) } require no gloss on the part of the Court in order to render them intelligible and workable. Their meaning is clear and it is the responsibility of constitutional actors in Guyana to honour them. Upon the passage of a vote of no confidence, the Article requires the resignation of the Cabinet including the President. The Article goes on to state, among other things, that notwithstanding such resignation, the Government shall remain in office and that an election shall be held “within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine …” The Guyana Elections Commission (“GECOM”) has the responsibility to conduct that election and GECOM too must abide by the provisions of the Constitution” { that is elections within 3 months}These efforts, by no less than the caretaker President and the AFC, to obfuscate the fact that the CCJ did provide a time limit and timeline, will not succeed.The CCJ said unequivocally that elections are due in the three months in accordance with article 106.The CCJ stated specifically that the time started on June 18th 2019 when the CCJ ruling was made. Although the Court rightfully stated that it could not set a date, it was unambiguously clear that whatever date is chosen it must be within the three months deadline.No spin doctor for the caretaker government can obliterate the judgment, declarations and orders of the Caribbean Court of Justice, Guyana’s highest court.The litmus test now for the APNUAFC Coalition caretaker government is whether it will uphold constitutional rule or not. Will it do anything to stay in power including subverting our constitution?Best regards,Gail Teixeiralast_img read more

Two local policies adopted at B.C. Chamber AGM

January 11, 2020 | uhjupwev | No Comments

first_imgThe intention is to adopt a strategy that has natural resource development projects leave communities better off, rather than just compensated.For example, better off is the difference between a temporary camp with trucked in water and services, and a fully developed camp with in ground water and sewer infrastructure.The second approved policy resolution is for the provincial government to encourage proposals for natural gas electric generation facilities, and to help with the development of natural gas fueled vehicles and infrastructure for consumers.- Advertisement -The wording of that recommendation was changed slightly to no longer include the phrase “first choice” for the consideration of natural gas projects.The policy resolution that wasn’t supported by the policy board proposed including basic driver training as part of the curriculum for high school students.Advertisement In its decision, the board writes, “the Policy Review Committee do not believe that driver education is an appropriate role for the education system.”First Vice-President Russ Beerling says the Chamber will now reevaluate that suggestion.“We will likely look at that on the local level and maybe try again next year to get it passed provincially.”The AGM was also a successful one for Director Moira Green, who was elected to sit on the B.C.

More KZN schools to provide food

December 19, 2019 | uhjupwev | No Comments

first_imgThrough the programme, over 1 079 high school learners will be benefit from the programme, which has been extended from 174 school days to 187 school days, with Cronje adding that the aim was to feed learners for all school days, funding permitting. Cronje also stated that the department is currently providing the nutrition programme to 3 924 primary schools in the province, especially rural schools that fall under the quintile one. Over 400 quintile one high schools in KwaZulu-Natal will soon be able to provide a hot meal to their impoverished learners as a result of the government’s school nutrition programme. 8 April 2009 Rural schools “Our ideal as the department is to provide meals for all the poor schools regardless whether it a primary or secondary school. We want all the hungry learners to be fed in our schools,” said Cronje. “The total amount the department will be speeding for the nutrition programme in the high schools is R555-million for 2009/10 financial year,” said Cronje.center_img She said the department received an additional R22-million in October 2008 from the National Treasury for quintile one secondary schools that had enrolled in the programme. A quintile is a national ranking method used by the Department of Education to measure how poor a school is, with quintile one being the poorest of all. Speaking in Durban on Monday, KwaZulu-Natal Education MEC Ina Cronje said the department would extend the programme to 431 quintile one high schools which were in dire need of food. “We started at the primary schools because the children there are more vulnerable to malnutrition,” she said.
