PSG’s ‘Olympic’ anger is coming for Mbappé

first_imgIn the PSG there is a certain degree of concern for Kylian Mbappé. The footballer, whom they are trying to renew to continue in Paris beyond 2021, He offered a few months ago to play the Olympic Games with France. They can go up to three players who exceed 23 years, and it goes without saying that three players of the national team must add to their talent (they are 21 years old and would not occupy one of those places), it would make them a fearsome rival. Flirt 1* Data updated as of February 13, 2020 The right side is expected to come, Colin Dagba, something that would not upset his club’s plans too much, but that Mbappé does not rest during the summer is another song. The president of the French Football Federation (FFF), Noël Le Graët, once again manifested in L’Equipe his interest in the star traveling to Tokyo and explained that it would be very difficult for them not to summon him knowing that he is willing to go, as well as the PSG would not oppose giving it up, if only for image reasons, since in case of retaining the entire country they could be thrown over. But it’s not just the Olympic Games. And it is also the year of Eurocopa and Copa América, competitions in which, except injury, will be both Mbappé (France) and Neymar (Brazil). The two stars of the team will not have rest in summer. As for the rest of the strikers, it is expected that Edinson Cavani go with Uruguay but just contract and Mauro Icardi not a regular with Argentina. Losing so many stars for so long worries as much as any other club, but in the case of Mbappé and Neymar, who want to be in all competitions, It can become a long-term problem due to the risk of fatigue or injury. 7last_img read more

SMALL BUSINESSES WILL HELP DONEGAL TO RECOVER – MCCONALOGUE

first_imgSmall businesses in Donegal will play a crucial role in the economic recovery of the county, according to local Councillor Charlie McConalogue. The Fianna Fáil candidate in Donegal North East has reiterated his commitment to supporting local businesses to help secure their future.Over the past week, Councillor McConalogue has spoken to many business owners and their employees who are concerned about the future of their companies. And he has vowed to ensure they have access to every support available to allow them to grow and create jobs. “While there is no doubt that investment from international companies must be pushed for Donegal North East, the reality is that most employment in this region will come from small businesses. We must do all we can to ensure their survival and development,” said Cllr. McConalogue.“Entrepreneurs must be given every chance to put their business ideas into action. The Fianna Fáil manifesto commits to extending the corporation tax exemption for start up companies for a further three years, and to amend it so the relief will be linked to the amount of employers’ PRSI paid by the company. This change will focus the relief on job creation and reward new companies that create jobs. “It also provides for investments in small firms at their earliest stages of development, through Enterprise Ireland’s €175 million seed and venture capital programme and through the €500 million Innovation Fund. “There is also a commitment secured from the main lenders to make €12 billion available for new or increased credit facilities to small and medium sized enterprises over 2010 and 2011 and I will be representing small businesses as strongly as possible in holding the lenders to account on this commitment.The local Councillor concluded, “While there is no doubt that things are very tough at present, we have strengths that we can build upon. I am certain that greater support for our small and medium sized enterprises can and will help us towards recovery in Donegal and across the country.”EndsSMALL BUSINESSES WILL HELP DONEGAL TO RECOVER – MCCONALOGUE was last modified: February 16th, 2011 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)last_img read more

GAA: STILL NO DATE FOR POSTPONED AODH RUADH V ST EUNAN’S U21 SEMI-FINAL

first_img FootballThe under 21 semi-final against Saint Eunan’s fell afoul of the weather on Sunday, we await a refixed date.The final night of the under 12 Ballyshannon Shoe Company Indoor Winter League took place last Friday last with nearly 30 under 12s battling it out in the new hall at Coláiste Cholmcille. The second set of round robins saw the Eagles and Hawks facing off in the Plate Final, the Falcons and Raptors paired in the Shield final, with the Harriers and Kestrels meeting in the Cup final. The Kestrels were undefeated over the two nights of the round robins up until the final game where the Harriers needed a win to put themselves in contention for the Cup final. The Harriers duly won 3-0 and earned three points which saw them finish level with the Raptors. It was the Harriers better score difference put them into the Cup decider. The Plate final was an closely matched affair, with the sides locked at a goal apiece for much of the game, but a late two goal burst from the Eagles gave them the victory. Cian Rooney was nominated as Eagles captain with Daire Warren, Jake Foley, Adam Hoey and Pauric Daly also contributing handsomely to the win. The Shield final between the Falcons and Raptors was perhaps the best game of the evening with fortunes tipping back and forth between two evenly matched sides. In the end it was the Raptors who emerged victorious by the odd goal in five. Aoibheann McGarrigle was nominated as captain of a Raptors team which also featured JJ Doran, Kyle McCaffrey, Matt Gillespie and Ryan Keenaghan. By way of clarification for those who asked incessant questions on the matter, check out http://www.thefreedictionary.com/raptor. Never let it be said that the GAA isn’t an enlightening force. The final game of the night and the six weeks of highly enjoyable football was played between the Harriers and a well-balanced Kestrels side. The Kestrels took a two goal lead, but Eugene Doherty is nothing if not a motivator and his men never let up and they grabbed a well-deserved goal to leave matters in the balance until close to the end when the Kestrels swept in a third insurance score for a Cup victory which was merited over the two nights. Aaron Neilan was named Kestrels captain and collected his cup trophy from tournament sponsor Gus Culkin of Ballyshannon Shoe Company. The Kestrels impressive team also included Art Mag Fhionnghaile, Diarmaid Flood-Dolan and Shane Duffy. Afterwards medal presentations were made to all the players who took part over the two nights of the under 12 Ballyshannon Shoe Company Indoor Winter League. Club PRO John Hughes praised the players for the great exhibition of football they put on and thanked Sylvester Maguire, Val Murray and Kerry Ryan for reffing over the course of the six weeks. There were thanks for Brian Roper, Mary Flora Scott, Shelly Loughlin, Dylan Gallagher, JC McGarrigle, Eugene Doherty, Nessa Warren, Síofra Hughes, Alicia Clyne, Bridín Maguire and Leah Travers for managing the teams over the two nights of the under 12 league. There was a special word of thanks for Gus Culkin and Ballyshannon Shoe Company for their generous sponsorship which had allowed the club to award each of the 80 plus players who took part over the six weeks medals and trophies for team captains.

Sergio Ramos takes swipe at Jurgen Klopp after ‘ruthless and brutal’ jibes

first_imgIn the second-half, Ramos also appeared to catch Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius on the head at speed and it is thought the German got concussion as a result of this.Karius went on to make two costly errors in the match which Real Madrid won 3-1.After the final, many Kopites were outraged with Ramos’ behaviour and one fan started an online petition calling on UEFA to ban the Spaniard. It has received over half a million signatures on change.org since.And speaking ahead of Real Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup tie against Atletico Madrid in Tallinn on Wednesday night, Ramos responded to Klopp’s earlier criticisms.He said: “I have no intention of hurting a player deliberately.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BURBANK – A half-dozen firefighters claimed Thursday they were used in a political maneuver when they posed with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger during a news conference last week at the scene of the Topanga Fire. Firefighters from Burbank and Los Angeles and Ventura counties said they regretted participating in last Friday’s news conference in Thousand Oaks, especially given their opposition to the governor’s ballot measures, Propositions 75 and 76. “They were absolutely being used as pawns,” said Caroll Wills, a spokesman for the California Professional Firefighters, which represents thousands of firefighters across the state. “It’s completely disingenuous for the governor to suggest that it was not a political event. It was patently a political event.” Schwarzenegger’s spokeswoman said the staff had asked for volunteers and had not coerced or tricked anyone into participating in the photo opportunity. “It’s all completely bogus,” spokeswoman Margita Thompson said. “Unfortunately, the unions are trying to twist the governor’s efforts to laud their heroic firefighting work into some kind of political gamesmanship.” Proposition 75 would prohibit the use of union dues for political contributions without the members’ consent. Proposition 76 would impose limits on state spending and give the governor more authority on where to make cuts during tough financial times. Firefighters say the initiatives would erode checks and balances on state government, silence workers and unravel public safety.

A Brain Emerged for Such a Worm as I

first_imgWith no room for discussion or Q&A, a press release from European Molecular Biology Laboratory asserted, “Modern brains have an ancient core.”  How ancient?  At least as far back as the marine ragworm.  Continuing the confident assertions, it went on to say, “Multifunctional neurons that sense the environment and release hormones are the evolutionary basis of our brains.”    The article says that neurons in this centipede-resembling annelid worm secrete hormones.  This was the basis of a surprising discovery for evolution:Hormones control growth, metabolism, reproduction and many other important biological processes.  In humans, and all other vertebrates, the chemical signals are produced by specialised brain centres such as the hypothalamus and secreted into the blood stream that distributes them around the body.  Researchers from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory [EMBL] now reveal that the hypothalamus and its hormones are not purely vertebrate inventions, but have their evolutionary roots in marine, worm-like ancestors.  In this week’s issue of the journal Cell they report that hormone-secreting brain centres are much older than expected and likely evolved from multifunctional cells of the last common ancestor of vertebrates, flies and worms.So rather than being a problem for evolutionary theory, these hormones showed that evolution was an innovator earlier than expected:“This suggested that hormone-secreting brain centres have arisen after the evolution of vertebrates and invertebrates had split,” says Detlev Arendt, whose group studies development and evolution of the brain at EMBL.  “But then vertebrate-type hormones were found in annelid worms and molluscs, indicating that these centres might be much older than expected.”Of all things.  They found that a fish, a vertebrate, and an annelid worm all had hormone-secreting neurons with “stunning similarities.”  The similarities between two fish and worm hormones “are so big that they are difficult to explain by coincidence,” the article claimed, seeing evolution as the only alternative.  “Instead they indicate a common evolutionary origin of the cells.”    But why would a worm need advanced brain cells?  The original paper in Cell,1 speaking of the neurosecretary control centers in higher animals, admitted that “The evolutionary origin of these centers is largely unknown.”  A story was forthcoming:The EMBL scientists now assume that such multifunctional sensory neurons are among the most ancient neuron types.  Their role was likely to directly convey sensory cues from the ancient marine environment to changes in the animal’s body.  Over time these autonomous cells might have clustered together and specialised forming complex brain centres like the vertebrate hypothalamus.And how did cells accomplish that, without being able to think or plan ahead?  That question was not addressed.  Instead, anything “conserved” is obviously “thus phylogenetically ancient,” they said.  “At the end of this process, complex brain centers emerged, such as the vertebrate hypothalamus, that integrate multiple sensory input,” obviously.    The team relished in how their findings “revolutionise the way we see the brain.”  It’s no longer just a computer with I/O.  “Now we know that the brain is itself a sensory organ and has been so since very ancient times.”1Tessmar-Raible, Arndt et al, “Conserved Sensory-Neurosecretory Cell Types in Annelid and Fish Forebrain: Insights into Hypothalamus Evolution,” Cell, Volume 129, Issue 7, 29 June 2007, Pages 1389-1400.Whenever you hear evolutionists saying, “Now we know,” you know two things: (1) they didn’t know anything before, and (2) they’re lying.  Now we know is code that a new just-so dime novel has hit the bookshelves, to replace the last one that got exposed as a fraud (e.g., 06/29/2007).    It gets so tiring to watch the Darwinians trying to pull these stunts on us.  They are hardened criminals at calling black white and white black.  They call creationists the evil ones for engaging in religion instead of empiricism, but then they turn around and grab the bullets nature aims at them, melt them down, and mold graven images to lay at Charlie Buddha’s feet.    Here they found a complex system in a worm and drew an absurd extrapolation, connecting it all the way to the human brain.  It should have been a problem that this feature existed long before vertebrates in their timeline, but no!  They leapt off the logical cliff and dived into the ocean of evolutionary speculation, where needs cause innovative solutions to “arise.”  Without a thinker to think, cells “clustered together and specialized,” all by themselves.  Presto: the vertebrate hypothalamus, controlling growth, metabolism and reproduction.  Wouldn’t Lamarck and the orthogenesis sect be proud.    It’s becoming a pattern for the evolutionists to find the roots of complex structures further and further back in their timeline.  At this rate, it won’t be long before they’ll be claiming that bedrock was the Last Universal Common Ancestor, and that the DNA code emerged in the primordial solar nebula.    Evolutionists can’t continue this line of explanation indefinitely.  It puts pressure for all the innovation to occur up front, and leaves less need for change afterward.  Why not go all the way, then?  Why not agree with the creationists that all the innovation appeared abruptly in the beginning?  What’s the problem?  We all believe in miracles anyway.  Whenever Darwinists need a miracle, they just wave their hands and say such and such a complex system simply “emerged.”  Why stretch out the inevitable?  Just cram all the miracles together at the beginning, say all the animals and plants appeared fully formed, and be done with it.  We’ll even give them six days.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SA filmmaker takes a shot at Venice

first_imgBy Shamin Chibba 23 August 2013 South African short film Territorial Pissings has been selected for Final Cut, a workshop at this year’s Venice International Film Festival.Directed by low-fi filmmaker Sibs Shongwe-La Mer, the story follows eight displaced young men and women from suburban Johannesburg on Youth Day as they “they try and make sense of sex, drugs and boredom”.The workshop will showcase four African films that are in post-production. The one judged to be the best will receive €55 000 (about R756 000) worth of technical expertise and assistance. The film festival runs from 28 August to 7 September.Initially, Shongwe-La Mer did not intend on applying for the programme. “I was sitting on my couch in my loft and reading Hollywood Reporter online about [Final Cut in Venice]. I wasn’t going to apply for it because I thought it was ridiculous.”But after learning that the submission to the workshop was free, he thought he would “give it a shot”. Earlier this month, he received an email from the organisers who said they needed him in Venice in three weeks’ time. “The film is going to be screening at the festival and they will help by financing the ending. So I’m coming back to South Africa to finish that bit.”Excerpt: Territorial Pissings – A film by Sibs Shongwe-La Mer from Whitman Pictures Independent on Vimeo. Visit Shongwe-Le Mer’s website: www.sibsshongwelamer.comRead more on Media Club South Africa: Independent film makes Venice cutlast_img read more
