Haaland’s father: “You have to go where the whole club wants you, not just the coach”

first_img“You never know how it will go for you in other clubs. It could also have gone well. We will never be able to answer this, but we are happy for the clubs he has been in. You must go to a team where the whole club loves you, not only the coach I think it is the most important thing, in addition to how the club has done in the last five or ten years and the direction they have taken. “ Premier League* Data updated as of March 26, 2020 17 Bundesliga* Data updated as of March 26, 2020 Alfe-Inge Haaland is the father and representative (advised by Mino Raiola) of Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland. The young Norwegian is one of the pearls of international football and it took him a few weeks to make fans of the German club fall in love just as he did in the RB Salzburg. But before choosing the Borussia Dortmund, had several options, being the Manchester United the one that rang loudest. The father of the football player went to Carrington to even talk to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, your coach in the Mold. However, in TV2 explained the reasons why they decided to reject the red devils: In this way, he also criticized the poor results of Manchester United. Now the 19-year-old striker is still highly valued, with Real Madrid after his steps, aware that in 2021 its termination clause would be 75 million euros. Meanwhile, the Norwegian continues to convince on the basis of goals and has already added 40 goals and 9 assists in 33 official matches this season.last_img read more

Ebini farm gears up to reap 100 acres of corn

first_imgAs food security and exports remain vital aspects of Guyana’s economy, New Frontier (NF) Agriculture has announced that its farm at Ebini, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), is set to harvest its test crop of approximately 100 acres of corn. The crop was planted in July and according to the group, it paves the way for the planting of two crops for 2019.In fact, NF Agriculture disclosed current projections for a first crop of 600 acres with the possibility of a larger second crop. Speaking in Georgetown while making preparations for the harvesting at Ebini, NF Agriculture Spokesperson, Fabiana Buckley, said “we are very satisfied with the results from this test crop since it confirms the potential of the agricultural lands here in the intermediate savannahs. We are going to continue to invest in this area as Guyana makes advances in agriculture and other areas.”Buckley also said that “we are committed to providing employment for residents inCorn cultivation at Ebinithe village. As we grow, we are committed to supporting the local community and making direct contributions to substance farmers operating in the area.”NF Agriculture said too that all of the corn to be harvested this month has already been sold to local stockfeed producers. It observed that its short-term goal is “to be able to provide all of Guyana’s local stockfeed needs by 2020.”“In the medium-term, NF expects to be able to supply the [Caribbean Community] Caricom market with corn for their stockfeed industry. Beyond that, the long-term goal is to expand to provide exports beyond the Caribbean,” a statement from NF noted.Agriculture Minister Noel Holder who visited the farm last month expressed satisfaction with the progress made at Ebini by NF Agriculture, as he met with the company’s staff which comprises nearly all locals, save for one “foreign family”.“NF Agriculture, while focusing on high yield, is also investing heavily in sustainability and in using techniques and products that are environmentally friendly. The seeds being used at Ebini are produced using a seed technology which makes the crop highly resistant to pests. This in turn reduces the need for the use of harmful pesticides,” the statement further outlined.It was earlier this year that a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between NF Agriculture Inc and investors of Lucas do Rio Verde which will see the commencement of an agricultural village in Guyana’s Intermediate Savannah.This development will see the construction of a research institute, bioethanol stations, the large-scale agricultural production of corn and soybean, banking institutions, among other initiatives.“Consequently, students from across the different regions of Guyana will gain many opportunities in becoming knowledgeable about the agriculture industry, enabling us to better compete in agriculture on the world stage. The company, which began work in Guyana in 2016, has had a positive impact thus far on the surrounding communities and intends to have an even greater impact in the coming months and years,” NF Agriculture committed.last_img read more

City Council election drawing some big bucks

first_imgPICO RIVERA – More than $141,000 has been poured into the City Council race here – from unions, a local congressional member and the candidates themselves. Seven candidates, including three incumbents, are seeking three seats on the council in the election Tuesday. Unions have given Albert Armijo $18,750, Rep. Grace Napolitano contributed $7,000 to a committee supporting two challengers and the candidates themselves have put in more than $36,000 of their own money, according to campaign finance reports filed with the City Clerk’s Office. In addition, one committee – the North South East Coalition to Reform Local Government that has put out three hard-hitting mailers targeting incumbents Carlos Garcia and Gregory Salcido – hasn’t yet filed its report as specified by state law. “There’s seven candidates,” said incumbent Pete Ramirez. “They’re throwing in everything but the kitchen sink into this race. “We have all this action because there’s issues between council people.” One incumbent, Salcido, blames Councilman Ron Beilke in large part for the large sums of money being poured into the campaign. “Someone who lost control of the City Council and a city manager is putting the most energy and economic resources into this race,” Salcido said. “He wants to regain control.” But Beilke, whose committee, Coalition to Restore Pico Rivera’s Pride, has raised $24,480 and spent $20,689, said he’s trying to clean up the city. “I’ve never been one to shy away from putting my money where my mouth is or shying away from a job that needs to be done,” Beilke said. “My goal is to inform the voters.” Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, contributed $7,000 to Beilke’s committee, which has a stated goal of supporting challengers Bob Archuleta and Gracie Gallegos-Smith. Napolitano didn’t return a phone call Tuesday for comment. Beilke’s committee has also contributed about $5,800 to the North South East Coalition. Bill Orozco, who is in charge of the North South East Coalition, said Tuesday that he hasn’t had time to file any financial report with Pico Rivera, or one that was due in January to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office. State law requires that any independent committee must file a report with the local jurisdiction once it has spent $1,000 or more on a campaign, according to Jon Matthews, spokesman for the Fair Political Practices Commission. “I had to go in for two surgeries,” Orozco said. “For physical reasons, I haven’t had time. I’m very busy.” But challenger Martin Morones said he doesn’t understand why Orozco hasn’t had time to file the reports. “They had enough time to put the \ pieces out,” Morones said. “They should have had enough time to file.” mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Conte happy with Hazard in false nine role

first_imgHazard has played in the false nine position on a number of occasions, but critics slammed the tactic last week following the loss against City, as Chelsea failed to record a shot on target.However, the Eagles are a very different proposition, with Conte explaining: “If I think it’s right for the team to play this way, it’s OK.“Otherwise I can take another decision and play with a striker. Maybe I can take different decisions. There are three players for two places. One has to go on the bench. Then I have to decide who has to go on the bench.”Chelsea signed Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in January but he has been used sparingly by Conte, who added: “For sure, [Giroud] is ready. He has specific characteristics, Olivier. He’s a strong player and has a lot of physicality. I think that, in some games, it’s right to start with him. In other games, it’s right to start with (Alvaro) Morata.“In others, it’s right to continue with Hazard as a No.9. Olivier, he played against West Brom from the start, and played against Hull, and then came on in every game, I think.“But he’s ready to play. But I repeat, I don’t like to speak to the press what happens with one player, with two players, with the team.“I like to talk with the players face to face, or in meetings with all the players.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Antonio Conte.LONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 10 – Antonio Conte says he will continue to utilise Eden Hazard as a ‘false nine’ for as long as he feels the system is working for Chelsea.The Blues play struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday evening, hoping to return to winning ways in the Premier League after two losses, 2-1 to Manchester United and 1-0 to Manchester City.last_img read more

Our House helps with grief process

first_imgWhen you lose a loved one, it can be one of the most difficult times in your life – dealing with raw emotions and feeling no one understands what you’re going through. One local organization that helps with the grief process is Our House, which has many support groups that are specific to the types of grief you’re experiencing, which can be beneficial. Just ask Hidden Hills residents Gary and Gilena Simons, who both lost spouses in 1998, but eventually found hope – and love – at Our House. They received the “Good Grief Award” from Our House for their continuing support of the organization Thursday night. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Gary lost his wife of 15 years to breast cancer the same year that Gilena lost her husband unexpectedly to a brain aneurism. Gilena said she initially thought she could deal with her grief on her own. “I’m not really a group person,” she said. However, being a young widow, only 28, she didn’t have friends who really understood what she was going through. After six months, she went to a group meeting at Our House’s L.A. office. She and Gary were the only group members from the San Fernando Valley. Because they lived relatively close to each other, they became “Bereavement Buddies.” They were married in 1999, which Gilena admits surprised some people. “People say, `Oh, you should wait,”‘ she said. But it can be important for the person left behind to say, “I’m willing to do it again,” Gilena said. “Even though you’re risking the fact that this person could die, too.” They still support Our House, which has had an office in the San Fernando Valley for about six years. Gilena is on the board of directors and volunteers there. Recently, UCLA and USC have started requiring first-year medical students to spend half a day at Our House to learn about the grieving process. Gilena said they learn there’s a patient in the bed, but there’s also a patient in the waiting room. The Valley office of Our House is located at 21860 Burbank Blvd., Woodland Hills.

first_imgThe Lobster Pods are in huge demand!A former Donegal boatbuilder has come up with a fishy way of solving the housing crisis that people won’t have to “shell” out a fortune on.Patrick McLoone has come up with a design to build an eco-friendly pad in the shape of a lobster pot!And the good news is that the Lobster Pod doesn’t even need planning permission. Patrick, from Rosbeg, has just launched the trendy pods and has already been swamped with phonecalls about the structures.“My father was a boatbuilder and I always dabbled with design.“I wanted a structure that fitted in with the landscape but was also comfortable and warm.“It was designed with the Donegal climate in mind so it had to be able to within the most severe of weather conditions,” said Patrick. The pods are 3 metres by 4 metres in size and come fitted with their own kitchen, toilet, shower and can accommodate up to six people with bunk beds and pull-out sofa beds.They even come with their own porthole-shaped window.They are insulated with sheep wool and can be powered using wind turbines, solar panels or from a mains connection.“Unlike some mobile homes they are not cold because of all the glass.“They are comfy and people find them very modern and the space is used very well. “Because they are mobile structures and are made of wood, they do not need planning permission,” he said.Patrick estimates that he will be able to build two of the pods each month once in full production.The eco-houses fit perfectly in the coastline or into forested areas.Patrick says the reaction to the Lobster Pods has been amazing. “We have received a lot of calls from across the country from people looking for the pods for a variety of uses.“They will make the ideal holiday home and can also be used for offices beside homes or for children’s dens.“We can customize the pods to client’s requirements and give them whatever finish they need,” he said.The pods take up to four weeks to complete and prices for the complete pods start at €10,000.FORMER BOATBUILDER THROWS HIS NET WIDE TO CAPTURE HOLIDAY HOME MARKET! was last modified: June 17th, 2013 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:holiday homesLobster PodPatrick McLoonerosbeglast_img read more
