There are great coaches who teach you systems, the set piece. At the time of Capelo he put Hierro, Raúl, Figo, Karembeu and me and we understood each other. When I was a coach, I put what I learned into practice and made the game easier. “Difficulty training: “It was hard for me to work with normal people. I have played with great phenomena. In Turkey, if you know that you are not better than the others, you prepare the physical and tactical part and the motivation is the same as that of a large team.”Positioning: “They understood that we had to enter the Europa League and I put all 20 players to play so that everyone was happy.

At that time things were done quickly “Change on the side: “The Spanish press said it was very offensive. Cafú and I have always been very offensive. Scolari changed the system.”last_img read more

More robust regulations needed for mining in Mazaruni River

first_imgLocal civil society group, the Policy Forum Guyana (PFG), is calling for more robust laws to govern mining operations, particularly in hinterland communities, following a recent incident involving a ‘dragga’ which resulted in one man being injured and several other occupants of a boat traumatised.The incident occurred on Monday on the Upper Mazaruni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), as a group of villagers from Jawalla were travelling in a boat on a six-hour journey to the famous Karowrieng rock paintings to celebrate the culmination of Heritage Month.The journey commenced in the wee hours of the day and while it was still dark, the boat approached a Brazillian ‘dragga’, which is said to be a more powerful operation than the traditional dredge. Without any warning, the steel cable anchoring the dragga to trees across the river – an illegal practice – was suddenly lifted out of the water and flung by one of the occupants of the boat, injuring the man on his face.Luckily at the time, the other occupants were lying in the boat and the cable passed over them, not causing any further harm. Had they not been in that position, they could have been knocked overboard or even beheaded.However, instead of offering apologies or assistance, the workers operating the ‘dragga’ begun hurling abuses at the traumatised boat occupants.According to the PFG, navigating the Mazaruni River between Jawalla and Imbaimadai continues to be a daily hazard for residents of Indigenous communities. Even experienced boat captains, the group said, are challenged by the currents and eddies constantly changing as a result of the sand-banks caused by tailings from mine sites.“Individual villagers are increasingly fearful of dangers posed by river travel on this stretch of the Upper Mazaruni, which remains the only physical means of communication between these communities and Kamarang where most sub-regional public services, such as Police, health, education, mining and agriculture are located,” the PFG noted in a statement on Saturday.The civil society group, which collectively focuses primarily on accountability and transparency issues to natural resources, climate change and extractive industries, posited that the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) seems to be a by-stander too often in such situations.“Whether its inaction results from being too thin on the ground, or being in thrall to the mining lobby, or impeded by the corruption that seeps like a mist through all levels of mining operations – including in some communities – is unclear,” the PFG asserted.It further highlighted that local Toshao and Village Councils rules relating to governing operations of draggas on rivers are not respected by owners of mine sites, who are well aware that communities have little power to enforce them. This sense of impunity, according to the PFG, has been reinforced by the court judgement which ruled that the rivers belong to the State and not the communities against a Mazaruni Village Council that attempted to remove a miner from the Mazaruni.“The need for a more robust legal regime to protection of rivers is patently obvious. Moreover, since those whose lives are most bound up with clean, safe rivers are Indigenous peoples, greater authority must be vested in Village Councils to control and manage rivers,” the civil society group stated.The PFG added that if this was the case then the rights of Indigenous communities to life, health and freedom of movement would be better protected and the integrity of the Upper Mazaruni River better preserved.last_img read more

DONEGAL MAN KEEPS CHARITY IN THE PICTURE WITH UNIQUE FUNDRAISING SCHEME

first_imgA well-known Donegal charity fundraiser is receiving a terrific ‘reception’ after launching a unique scheme.Terence Gallagher came up with the plan when he visited his sister who had two old television sets.He found it was easy to sell the old sets and made a few euro for his chosen charity St Vincent De Paul. Then he realised that with the arrival of digital television across the country in October, many people were looking to offload their old televisions.So the Falcarragh man, who has lived in Letterkenny for many years, man sent out an appeal for old television sets.And in just two weeks he has gathered just under ONE HUNDRED television sets.“I can’t believe the response. It really has been terrific. “With the arrival of digital TV, a lot of people are taking the opportunity to buy new televisions.“People are just glad they don’t have to go to the bother of scrapping their old televisions and they are going to a good cause,” said Terence.Terence, who works at the Letterkenny Community centre, arranges for the televisions to be sent to different parts of Africa and the profit made goes directly to St Vincent De Paul.“People in Africa may live in poor conditions but they almost all have televisions.“There is a market for them there. We don’t get a lot of money for them but whatever we do get goes directly to the charity,” vowed Terence. He is currently storing the televisions at Letterkenny Athletic Club’s clubhouse on the Pearse Road, but is also looking for anyone who can donate some warehouse space close to Letterkenny Town Centre to get in touch.Televisions must be in working order and Terence can be contacted on 086 3192721.DONEGAL MAN KEEPS CHARITY IN THE PICTURE WITH UNIQUE FUNDRAISING SCHEME was last modified: March 22nd, 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:charityST VINCENT DE PAULTELEVISION SETSTERENCE GALLAGHERlast_img read more

Injury is hampering Livingston

first_imgThe big question about Shaun Livingston isn’t whether he has the talent to make it in the NBA, but whether he has the durability. While this could have been the preseason for the Clippers guard to show that he has the constitution to put his injury problems behind him, instead it has been the opposite. Livingston has yet to play in an exhibition because of a strained lower back. He hasn’t participated fully in practice because of the ailment, and there is a possibility that he could miss the start the season. Livingston took a second MRI on his back on Friday, but results were not available Friday evening. Regardless of the MRI, no specific date has been set for when he will practice fully or play in an exhibition. “I do have a little bit of concern,” coach Mike Dunleavy said. “Basically, there’s inflammation, and that’s what the test tells you, whether the inflammation has gone down. We’ve been trying to keep contact away from the inflammation.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Livingston is expected to back up Sam Cassell at point guard this season. If he is unable to play at the start of the season, the Clippers probably will acquire a veteran point guard. Daniel Ewing, a rookie out of Duke, is the third-string point guard, but asking him to start the season as the backup may be too much. “He’s a rookie, and he still has to learn the position,” general manager Elgin Baylor said. “He is not a true point guard, per se. He’s played that position, and defensively, he does a good job. But running the team, he has to learn.” D-League unlikely: Dunleavy indicated that it is unlikely first-round pick Yaroslav Korolev will start the season with the team’s developmental league affiliate in Austin, Texas, which happens to be coached by former Clipper assistant coach Dennis Johnson. The Clippers likely will not send anyone to the D-League to start the season. center_img Injury update: Corey Maggette had his practice cut short on Friday because he strained his left hamstring.
