The fans will recover the welcome to the team in Anoeta

first_imgAll the Real society He has become aware that Thursday’s game is the most important of his last three decades of history. It is the first step to return to play a Copa del Rey final 32 years later. In Zubieta every sporting aspect is prepared with care, every detail is prepared in the club’s offices so that nothing fails, and the fans also mobilize so that the first episode of the tie against Mirandés It starts to win from before the match starts Reale Arena. The club from San Sebastian has activated this measure of animation before the game with the help of the groups of clubs, to remember other emotional moments lived in transcendental games of the club’s recent history, but that they stopped doing when the stadium reform was made. The team bus no longer stops outside the field as before and enters the bowels, so the fans stopped receiving with the heat and the atmosphere they did before the team bus. Now we want to recover this initiative so that the players feel the warmth of their fans on a night that can begin to lead another Real Cup final. The club wants it to be an emotional reception and in which the little ones can also participate, so it makes a very specific appeal. “In the spirit that the youngest may attend this reception, we ask that those elements that may pose a physical risk be avoided,” he says in his statement. The San Sebastian club, along with their fans, has prepared a welcome to the Real Sociedad bus upon arrival at the Anoeta stadium. He has cited all realistic followers in the Madrid Avenue, the street that leads to the soccer field of the txuri-urdin team, after 19:00 hours, which is the time at which the players are expected to leave their concentration hotel. “The bus will leave your hotel at that time and will pass through the avenue a few minutes later, then turn right, take the roundabout of the Errondo promenade until you reach the access ramp to the Reale Arena located at the north bottom, next to to the Euskotren station near the stadium “.last_img read more

The PFA asks for an urgent meeting with the Premier: they could cut salaries in half

first_imgAll elite soccer in England was postponed until at least April 3 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the suspension will be deferred until at least April 30.The break has affected, as in other competitions such as the Santander League, on the financial side, causing losses in all the clubs in the country, whether due to the tickets on game days or many other factors.The BirminghamFor example, he has asked to postpone the payment of wages to his players and cut their wages in half for four months, at least to all those whose salaries exceed 6,000 pounds a week, that is, about 6,500 euros. Reducing the chips by 50% is an initiative that would be supported by English clubs.According to him TelegraphThe Professional Footballers Association (PFA) has called for a meeting with the heads of England’s First and Second Divisions to discuss salary reductions, which in some cases could be as high as 50%.

first_imgWe would like to begin the New Year on a high note by paying special tribute to all health care providers-medical doctors, nurses, clergymen and women, volunteers and others who lost their lives to the Ebola epidemic of 2014.We thank them for their sacrifices, display of valor, professionalism, selflessness and uncommon volunteer action that has inspired all of us. Because of their action and sacrifices, we look forward to 2015 with renewed energy and commitment believing that all interventions put in place in the fight against Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) would eventually lead to the eradication of EVD from Liberia.Building a lasting, multimedia memorial for those whose sacrifices provide us with a space to live would be a worthwhile project. As a nation, we need to commemorate the lives of those lost to EVD so as not to forget what we have been through and what lies ahead.Messengers of Peace (MOP)-Liberia takes this opportunity to call on Government of Liberia, International Organizations and Civil societies to provide the much needed coordination policy to end the fight against Ebola, to strengthen the health care system and to equip our schools with hygienic facilities and supplies. We can only improve the lives of those that have survived and honor the memories of those who lost their lives to the epidemic. According to Albert Camus in The Plague-“What is true of all the evils in the world is true of plague as well; it helps men to rise above themselves.”Together, we have come this far. The concept of “it takes a village” is given further expression through such all-embracing action of our heroes and heroines. For us at MOP-Liberia, we are refreshed to know that our hard work, through the various community education outreach programme and weekly column has paid off and we remain committed and ready to develop programmes that protect young people, particularly children against all risks. We intend to go further on a new journey that leads to the prevention, control and eradication of EVD from Liberia.For a disease with such high fatality and social consequences as Ebola, the wise saying that prevention is better than cure makes cannot be overemphasized. It is on this premise that we would like to request the Government of Liberia to continue ensuring the safety of all our health care providers and volunteers risking their lives in the fight against the Ebola virus.On a related note, we are pleased that schools are scheduled to reopen next month and we are quick to caution that if there are no concrete steps to equip schools and educate the youth about EVD, as well as put in place the necessary precautionary measures, then the mediocrity that places us at risk will continue. A long term plan and strategy should be employed to guarantee the safety of our children.News of significant progress in the development of effective vaccines deserves our attention, particularly considering the expert opinion of their safety and we are optimistic that the treatment regimen, protocols and vaccines would make the difference.  Beyond the scientific breakthrough of Ebola vaccines, we must remember to address the issues surrounding the political sluggishness, unemployment, corruption and grossly inadequate healthcare infrastructure, among others, which constitute a drawback to the progress made so far.Until next week, when we come to you with another article on: “Notes of Forward Looking Interventions in the Fight against Ebola”, Peace First, Peace above all else, May Peace prevail on earth!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgA SENIOR staff nurse with decades of experience dealing with road tragedies committed three dangerous driving offences within minutes of each other, a court has heard.The incident, Letterkenny District Court was told, was one of the worst cases of dangerous driving witnessed by experienced officer Garda Damian Mulkearns.Mary O’Callaghan, The Commons, Bellinaleck, Co Fermanagh is a senior specialist nurse at Enniskillen Hospital. She admitted the offences which took place two days before Christmas last year as she drove into Ballybofey from Donegal Town.Judge Paul Kelly heard how Ms O’Callaghan, who is 59, swerved in and out of a line of traffic overtaking cars and narrowly missing both oncoming vehicles and a traffic island.Defence solicitor Patsy Gallagher said the nurse was extremely embarrassed and regretful about the offences which were “a single blight on 40 years of driving.”He said she had had a “difficult shift” the night before, had friends arriving for Christmas and had her priorities in the wrong place.The solicitor added that it could have been a “very sorrowful Christmas had things gone the other way and there had been a crash.”Judge Kelly told the defendant: ” I am amazed at someone in your position would drive in such a manner; Gda Mulkearns description of the incident as being one of the worst he has ever seen speaks volumes about these incidents.”Sentence was adjourned until October 13 with the nurse sent on the Pro-Social Drivers Course and ordered to pay €150 towards the cost of it.SENIOR STAFF NURSE ADMITS 3 DANGEROUS DRIVING CHARGES IN ‘WORST CASE FOR YEARS’ was last modified: July 17th, 2014 by John2Share 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:dangerous drivingEnniskillenFermanaghMary O’CallaghanNURSElast_img read more

Chelsea to assess Mata injury problem

first_imgJuan Mata will be checked over by the Chelsea medical team after suffering an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw at Reading.The Blues playmaker was substituted on 77 minutes with his team 2-0 up at the Madejski Stadium.Reading, who had failed to register a shot on target, subsequently scored two late goals to snatch a draw.However, Benitez revealed the decision to bring on Yossi Benayoun for Mata was made because the Spaniard had picked up a knock.Benitez said: “He has a problem with his ankle, we will have to see the doctor.

Malaysia A330 landing gear was replaced after Melbourne hard landing.

first_imgA hard landing by a Malaysia Airlines Airbus A330 that substantially damaged the landing gear was the result of an unstable approach that the crew initially failed to recognise,  safety investigators have found.The A330 landed so hard at Melbourne airport two years ago that the main landing gear had to be replaced.Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigators found that the captain felt the aircraft sink when it was in the final stages of approach and about 50ft from the ground.He used an unapproved procedure to increase the engine thrust in an effort to slow the rate of descent but the landing was hard enough to cause substantial damage. There were no injuries in the March 14, 2015 incident.Investigators found the approach had become unstable at 300ft due to control inputs by the captain.“Flight data showed that the pilot flying  (the captain) disengaged the autopilot at approximately 700 feet above ground level (AGL) and from that point until touchdown there was an increase in the frequency and magnitude of sidestick pitch control inputs by the PF,’’ the ATSB said in a final report released Wednesday.“In response to these inputs the aircraft’s autothrottle system varied the engine thrust to maintain a target speed, as per system design, and the aircraft pitch angles fluctuated between approximately -0.5 degree nose down and +5.0 degree nose up. “The net result of the varying thrust settings and pitch angles was a fluctuating rate of descent between approximately 380 and 960 feet per minute.“Large sidestick inputs, specifically nose-down, also have the potential to inhibit the vertical speed reduction function, which is an automated function that provides some protection against touchdown at very high vertical speeds.’’The investigators found the rate of descent at 300ft was 960ft per minute, close to the maximium allowed by Malaysia of 1000ft per minute.The pilot continued the unstable approach despite company procedures and manufacturer’s recommendations that dictated a go-around if an approach is unstable below 500ft.There was also confusion in the cockpit when the captain moved the thrust levers momentarily into the take-off/go around (TOGA) position and the first officer assumed that a go-around was being conducted and tried to pull up the aircraft’s nose. “Inadequate monitoring and communication by the crew led to a lack of recognition of the Undesirable flight state and the continuation of an unstable approach,’’ the report found.“Continuation of the unstable approach led to a high rate of descent at touchdown and resulted in a hard landing in excess of the aircraft design loads and short of the normal touchdown.’’The incident prompted Malaysia Airlines to circulate a memorandum to A330 flight crew highlighting the details and outlining procedures aimed at preventing a similar occurrence. The flight crew involved also undertook additional training and assessment before returning to flight duties.“If an approach does become unstable, a rushed attempt to recover the approach may produce an undesirable aircraft response,’’ The ATSB said. “There is also a risk of breaking down the shared understanding between the pilots, which in turn limits the opportunity of the other flight crew to detect or react to inappropriate actions.“When landing, pilots should maintain a safety philosophy of ‘If in doubt, go around’.”last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – October 15, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Partly to mostly sunny skies today. Southwest winds will help temps get a little warmer this afternoon than yesterday. Clouds will also be on the increase this afternoon too, as we get closer to a front that looks to pass overnight tonight into tomorrow. The best cloud development this afternoon will be in west and especially northwest parts of Ohio.Showers spread over the state tonight through tomorrow. Rain totals will be mostly from .1″-.6″ with coverage at 90% of Ohio. Western areas see clouds and precipitation clear out sooner, and may even be able to see a decent sunset. However, eastern locations will be stuck with clouds and some lingering moisture into the evening.Dry and sunny to finish the week. We are significantly cooler behind the frontal boundary for Thursday, but see a return to southwest winds for Friday which will start to boost our daytime highs again. Relative humidity values will be low so we should see decent drying both days. Partly sunny skies are expected for Saturday.A minor frontal boundary slides in for Sunday. We are putting better chances of rain in the forecast for that day, with scattered showers over 80% of the state, although moisture totals are not that impressive. Right now we are penciling in a few hundredths to .4″. However, the boundary just primes the pump for bigger rain and thunderstorm action on Monday. A significant cold front sweeps through from west to east, and brings rains of .25″-1″ over 80% of Ohio. Heavier rains will be triggered by thunderstorms. Strong winds are likely and a big cool down comes in behind. We look for moisture to continue into the evening before a dry slot takes over. The map at right shows an update on the rain potential for this weekend and early next week.Much colder for most of the rest of next week. This system looks very similar to the strong winter storm that hit the plains and upper Midwest last week…not in its precipitation type and spread, but in the strength of the low, and how is  is very slow to track across the great lakes and out of the region. Because of that, we think that we see wrap around clouds sweeping through the northern third to quarter of the state next Tuesday and Wednesday as the low tracks through MI and Ontario. central and southern Ohio just turn out partly to mostly sunny. The entire state is partly to mostly sunny for Thursday, but we stay very cool. Temps for the bulk of next week behind the early week system will be below normal.Temps attempt to moderate next Friday with the return of south flow, but that likely sets the stage for a frontal passage for the extended window that brings another round of rain, cold air and wind, likely the end of next weekend into early the week following.last_img read more

What Percentage of iPhone Owners are on iOS4?

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces sarah perez Tags:#Apple#iPhone#mobile#news The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Have you ever wondered how many iPhone 4 owners have upgraded to iOS 4, the latest and greatest version of the iPhone mobile operating system? Although Apple doesn’t release these sorts of numbers in detail, the way Google does with Android, a startup with a large user base, Bump, has released their own numbers, which provide good insight into the OS breakdown.According to Bump CEO and co-founder David Lieb, 89.73% of its users are on iOS 4.x – that is, they run some version of the iOS 4.0 software.Lieb recently shared these figures on Q&A service Quora where they were soon spotted by our own Marshall Kirkpatrick. The answer Lieb posted is a standout example of why the tech community is currently hyping the Q&A startup Quora to such a great extent, even proclaiming it to be the next Twitter, in some cases.But back to the data at hand.Lieb said that Bump’s user base is large enough to be a good statistical sample. However, he doesn’t state how large. But we do know that as of August 2010, the Bump app had been downloaded 15 million times. In addition, we asked Lieb this morning where Bump stands as of today. The app has now had more than 25 million downloads across iOS and Android, he told us. So yes, we’re buying it that their sample is large enough to be of interest here.For the data below, Lieb says that the sample comes from all Bump users between January 7 and January 10, 2011. This data includes all iOS devices, though, not just the iPhone.By major revision, the statistics are as follows:4.X: 89.73 %3.X: 10.25 %2.X: 0.02 %And by individual minor revisions, the stats are (ranked by percentage):4.2.1: 52.89 %4.1: 27.50 %3.1.3: 6.43 %4.0.2: 3.36 %4.0.1: 2.95 %4.0: 2.94 %3.1.2: 2.52 %3.2.2: 0.49 %3.0: 0.22 %3.1: 0.21 %3.0.1: 0.10 %3.2: 0.10 %3.1.1: 0.10 %4.2: 0.09 %3.2.1: 0.07 %2.2.1: 0.02 %2.2: 0.00 %In addition, Ian Peters-Campbell, an engineer at Loopt, makers of a location-based iPhone application, responded to the question saying that Loopt’s stats were very similar to the above, but with even a little more of its users on iOS 4. Lieb said that made sense since Loopt probably had more iPhone users (vs. iPod Touch users) than Bump did.What this goes to show is that Apple’s mobile operating system isn’t too badly fragmented, especially when compared with its competitor, Android. On Android, as of today, only 0.4% of Android devices are on the most recent version – version 2.3 aka “Gingerbread.” Of course, Gingerbread is brand-new, so even looking back pre-launch to December 2010, we found that only 43.4% ran Android 2.2 (Froyo), then the most recent version.Image credit: TiPb Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts last_img read more

‘Custodial’ death sparks tension in U.P. town

first_imgTension spread in Pilakhuwa town, Hapur district of Uttar Pradesh, on Monday morning after a man allegedly died in police lock-up of torture. Three policemen, including the Station House Officer, have been suspended.Local sources said Pradeep Tomar (30), a resident of Lakhan village, was picked up by police near the Chhajrasi toll plaza on Sunday for questioning in connection with a murder case. They alleged that he was detained when he was travelling with his wife and son. Late in the night, when his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to the GS Medical College in Pilahuwa, where he died in the early hours of Monday. Meanwhile, a video, purportedly showing Tomar’s backside as completely blue and marks of beating on his arms, has gone viral.Yesh Veer Singh, Superintendent of Police, Hapur, told The Hindu, “On August 30, a half-burnt body of a woman was found in the jungle of Lakhan village. Pradeep was a relative of the deceased. She was the wife of his brother-in-law. During surveillance and investigation, he was found to be a suspect. He developed health complications during questioning and was taken to a local hospital. Later, he was referred to the Meerut Medical College, where he died during treatment.”As the officials didn’t follow the standard operating procedure and didn’t inform their seniors before taking Pradeep into custody, Inspector Yogesh Baliyan, chowki in-charge Ajab Singh and constable Manoj have been suspended. “We are waiting for the post-mortem report before taking further action. A departmental inquiry and a magisterial probe have been ordered,” Mr Singh said. He refused to comment on the video that purportedly shows injury marks on the deceased and the son and wife of Tomar alleging that he was beaten in their presence. “Let’s wait for the post-mortem and inquiry reports. The post-mortem is being video recorded,” added Mr. Singh. Family members and farmer leaders protested in the Meerut Collectorate, demanding murders charges against policemen involved in the case. The PAC (Provincial Armed Constabulary) has been deployed in Pilakhuwa and nearby villages.last_img read more

Vijender Kumar’s family watches his match with prayers and cheers

first_imgLosing sleep and watching late-night football matches is a common trend among the upper middle class families in urban areas. But in Kaluwas, a tiny village near Bhiwani, Haryana, it’s the men’s boxing competition at the London Olympics which keeps people awake till the wee hours.They have a good reason to do that as local boy and Olympic medallist Vijender Kumar is fighting for his second medal at the ExCel Arena in London.Vijender was scheduled to fight Terrell Gausha of the United States in his pre-quarterfinal bout on Thursday and the scene at the boxer’s residence in Kaluwas was no less than that at a packed indoor stadium. Vijender’s courtyard might not have much space, but every inch was filled by eager family members and villagers who gathered to watch Vijender in action.The bout was scheduled at 2:15 am but the villagers showed childlike enthusiasm. The village is dogged by inconsistent power supply, but to make sure that no one misses the action, the family had a television set in the courtyard attached to a heavy-load generator.Vijender’s family holds special prayers before his bouts and Thursday was no exception. Vijender’s father Mahipal Singh has a superstition that his son will lose if he watches him live on television. So, he prays in seclusion at a temple in his ancestral farm. He religiously followed this routine on Thursday as well.As Doordarshan tuned in to the boxing competition in the 60kg category, the attention of viewers shifted to the television. The eager crowd makes comments about the competitors. Around 25 of the villagers are boxers of international repute and their opinions were right most of the time.advertisementAfter that Vijender’s bout started and each of his punches drew huge applause from the villagers. In contrast, every punch of Gausha drew oohs and aahs.Vijender’s confident face gave the villagers the impression that Vijender would win. He stepped up his game in the third and deciding round but Gausha too scored on counter punches.Vijender’s win triggered an impromptu dance among the villagers lasting five minutes.last_img read more
