Thiago charges against the Bundesliga: “You are irresponsible”

first_img“This is directed at the DFL: Irresponsible, reckless!” The Munich midfielder wrote on his social network. “This is crazy. Please stop being silly and fall for reality. Let’s be honest, there are many issues that are much more important than any sport.”, stressed the former FC Barcelona who, for his part, was absent from recent training sessions due to illness according to the German newspaper Bild. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO of BayernHe added: “We do not have a positive case in the Bundesliga. In the Premier and in formula one, for example, yes, so the activity ended up being suspended. I think we are taking the issue responsibly and always in accordance with the recommendations Politics. It’s okay that in this panic situation, something routine is offered to our fans. ” The boss of the German champion also admitted that all club employees went to their respective jobs on Friday despite the considerable outbreak of the coronavirus in Germany. Thiago has exploded against the Bundesliga authorities after they made official the decision to play the next day of the highest German competition before the competition closes until at least April 2. The Spanish international took advantage of his Twitter account to position himself against said resolution and charged heavily against the German league federation DFL, responsible for finally taking place the next day that will face Bayern Munich with the Berlin Union on Saturday afternoon .last_img read more

Brathwaite pair rescue Windies, but Aussies in control

first_img Off-spinner Nathan Lyon has been the most successful bowler with two for 68. West Indies once again had a dodgy start, losing the right-handed Hope in the morning’s fifth over, sparring at an out-swinger from seamer Josh Hazlewood and nicking a catch behind. Brathwaite and Bravo then countered with dominant stroke-play as West Indies enjoyed one of their finest sessions of the series. Emerging from a typical watch start, Brathwaite blossomed nicely to stroke 10 fours in an innings lasting 174 balls, while Bravo showed glimpses of his good form in a 95-ball innings, which contained six fours. Bravo twice drove pacer James Pattinson for exquisite offside boundaries in the 11th over before aggressively pulling the same bowler through mid-on for another four, in the right-armer’s next over. Brathwaite was uncharacteristically audacious, twice coming down to Lyon and lifting the bowler back overhead for boundaries. He brought up his second half-century of the series and eighth in Tests in the third over before lunch when he punched Mitchell Marsh to the ropes at point and then followed up with a couple to square leg. Unbeaten on 32 at lunch with West Indies on 92 for one, Bravo added just one after the resumption before falling in the third over at 104 for two, caught by Usman Khawaja at backward square as he failed to keep down a pull off Pattinson. West Indies then threatened to implode. They lost Marlon Samuels for four before rain forced an early tea break, and then lost a further three wickets following the resumption. Samuels, with a wretched 31 runs from four innings in the series, steered Lyon to Hazlewood at point and immediately set off for a non-existent run. Both he and Brathwaite started and stopped before Samuels was left stranded by the throw to the keeper’s end. On 115 for three at the tea break, West Indies looked to be flourishing afterwards when Jermaine Blackwood pulled Lyon and drove Pattinson for boundaries in moving to 10. An error in judgement caused his downfall, however, offering no stroke to one from Lyon that ripped back to hit the off stump with West Indies on 131 for four. Kraigg Brathwaite added 27 for the fifth wicket with Ramdin before he, too, perished at the hands of Lyon, gloving a cut to captain Steve Smith at first slip off one that bounced. SYDNEY, Australia (CMC): Opener Kraigg Brathwaite stroked an enterprising half-century but West Indies’ batting wobbled to give Australia the advantage on the opening day of the final Test here yesterday. Opting to bat first, the Caribbean side finished the rain-hit day at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 207 for six, with the right-handed Brathwaite top-scoring with 85. All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite, in his second Test, was unbeaten on a cameo run-a-ball 35 and was partnered by wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin on 23. Left-hander Darren Bravo also sparkled, albeit briefly, in scoring an attractive 33. He and Kraigg Brathwaite put on 91 for the second wicket following the early loss of Shai Hope for nine but the familiar middle-order collapse followed, with the Windies losing five wickets for 55 runs, to slump to 159 for six in the final session. However, Carlos Brathwaite and Ramdin came together in a seventh-wicket stand currently worth 48 to stall Australia’s progress and ensure West Indies were still afloat at the close. BRILLIANT CATCH Lyon in top form With one run added 15 balls later, captain Jason Holder was brilliantly caught low down by Joe Burns at forward short leg for one, off a firm leg-side push off left-arm spinner Steve O’Keefe. Tottering, West Indies were rescued for the second straight Test by the authoritative Carlos Brathwaite, who counter-attacked to pull the innings around. The right-hander, who got a half-century on debut in the Melbourne second Test last week, blasted four fours and two sixes, while Ramdin played a supporting role, facing 72 deliveries and counting two fours. Brathwaite was off the mark in style, clearing the ropes back overhead with O’Keefe off the second ball he faced and then twice swept the same bowler behind square for boundaries in later overs. In the day’s final over, he deposited O’Keefe several rows back and followed up with a full-blooded cut to the point boundary, as West Indies finished strongly.last_img read more

FLOW scores with massive Man U deal

first_img Things didn’t get better for United, who lost the game 2-1, but as FLOW’s head of marketing and products Carlo Redwood, underlined, Manchester United and football fans in general will have much to cheer about as this partnership unfolds. “We are now the official sponsors of Manchester United in the Caribbean, and that’s a huge deal for us. It’s a partnership that allows us to connect with our customers in unique ways. Manchester United is the most popular football club in Jamaican and the region and it was important to partner with a brand like Manchester United. It allows us to provide new and exciting experiences for our customers,” Redwood said. “A key part of the arrangement is geared towards development of football in Jamaica and the Caribbean. We are working through the specifics of how we will make that happen in Jamaica and the Caribbean, but we will be seeing programmes rolling out in terms of coaching and in terms of different elements of developing football in Jamaica and the region,” Redwood added. FLOW subscribers can also download a free co-branded mobile app, which will feed them with content related to the club. This is also available through SMS subscription. FLOW will also have exclusive distribution rights of the dedicated MUTV channel in the region, allowing subscribers to get access to exclusive Manchester United programming as well as behind-the-scenes access to the club, starting with the upcoming 2016-17 Premier League season. Manchester United legend in attendance. Check. Why stop there? Let’s bring in Manchester United’s mascot, ‘Fred the Red’ as well. Check. A Manchester United game on big screen (even if it was only a Europa League loss to lowly Midtjylland). Check. Telecommunications company FLOW has scored a heck of a deal and they went all out to make that point, certainly ticking all the right boxes yesterday as they launched their ground-breaking multi-year partnership with Barclays Premier League giants Manchester United. Despite their current sporting struggles, the ‘Red Devils’ remain one of – if not the most – recognisable brands in world football and FLOW’s ‘Official Sponsor’ tag will certainly excite their disciples in Jamaica and the region. The deal, which was originally announced several weeks ago, follows the company’s securing of the exclusive broadcast rights for the Barclays Premier League, starting next season, and will include, among other things, engagement opportunities for fans and other programmes geared at the development of the sport in the region. Andy Cole, who scored 93 goals in 195 games for Manchester United and who is also known as half of a fearsome strike partnership with another United legend, Dwight Yorke, was introduced to deafening cheers with the ‘ManU’ mascot Fred also getting his fair share of lens time with the specially invited guests who had packed the aptly-themed Spanish Court Hotel lounge. “It’s (the partnership) fantastic! The Caribbean market is massive, especially when it comes to football, and for FLOW to get involved with Manchester United, it’s a great partnership. It’s just starting out, but, no doubt, it will go from strength to strength, not just here, but right across the Caribbean,” Cole beamed before a quick glance at a television monitor to his right as he checked the score – 1-1 at the top of the second half.

McCONALOGUE DEMANDS FULL REVERSAL OF ‘SAVAGE’ CUTS TO 3,312 DONEGAL CARERS

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has demanded that the Government immediately reverse the deeply unfair cut to the Respite Care Grant introduced in the Budget.The Donegal TD has revealed that 3,312 carers in Donegal will be directly affected by this callous cut.Just under 200 of these do not get any other payment from the state, and Deputy McConalogue has said that this cut is ‘devastating’ for them. Speaking after he attended a Carer’s Association protest outside the gates of Dáil Éireann today, Deputy McConalogue said “This is just the latest callous cut in what has been a sustained and targeted attack on people with disabilities, their families and their carers over the past year.“Not only have Fine Gael and Labour been ignoring the outcry over savage cuts to home help hours and the sneaky reductions in disability services, they are now prepared to further attack the most vulnerable people and their carers..“Have they no idea just how badly this is affecting thousands of people here Donegal and tens of thousands across the country? In the space of just 18 months, Fine Gael and Labour have returned to the disability sector again and again for deeply unfair cuts that have an enormous impact on the health and independence of people who desperately need support.”The 20% cut means that 3,312 Donegal carers and 72,000 people across the country will be down €6.50 a week to €26. Deputy McConalogue continued, “The Government’s only response is to say that the cut is ‘modest’. I have spoken to a number of carers in Donegal over the past number of months who are already under severe pressure and I know that for them, this cut is far from modest. It could be the difference between having the heating on or a warm meal.“On top of everything else, this budgetary measure doesn’t even make any financial sense. The overall savings at €26 million are relatively small, while the continuing attack on supports for people with disabilities and their carers will push people onto the already overburdened hospital system.He asked why the Government didn’t increase the Universal Social Charge for people earning over €100,000 a year, as Fianna Fáil proposed in our alternative budget?“This would have saved €200 million a year – that’s 8 times the savings from the deeply discriminatory respite care cut.“The Government must reverse this damaging cut immediately before it’s too late,” said Deputy McConalogue.

Hacker to test out voting machines

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – A computer hacker will try to break into one of California’s electronic voting machines as part of a security test initiated by the state. Harri Hursti, a computer security expert from Finland, has been given the go-ahead by Secretary of State Bruce McPherson to attempt to infiltrate one of the voting machines made by Diebold Election Systems. The company is one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of electronic voting systems and is trying to get its new system approved for use in California. The tests will use a randomly selected voting machine from one of the 17 counties that currently use a Diebold system. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals After a test in July in San Joaquin County, the state refused to certify Diebold’s new printer-equipped voting machines after 20 percent of the machines malfunctioned. “The secretary said that performance wasn’t good enough,” said Nghia Nguyen Demovic, a spokeswoman for McPherson’s office. Hursti was asked to try to demonstrate that machines made by Diebold are vulnerable to hacker attacks and can be used to manipulate the results of an election. The company’s machines were blamed for disruptions in the March 2004 primary election in California. Two months later, then-Secretary of State Kevin Shelley pulled the certification of Diebold machines in four counties and restricted their use in 10 other counties until their security could be improved.last_img read more
