first_img It’s not clear, though, if Barça can sell players while they are under FIFA’s transfer ban. After six seasons with Arsenal and two in the background at Barcelona, Alex Song is once again able to enjoy his football on loan at West Ham.  10/10/2014 The ‘Daily Star’ have published a story on Friday suggesting that Liverpool are still interested in the Cameroon international, as previously published in Sport. If Liverpool are keen to sign Song next summer, or even in January, following his impressive form back in England, they would still have to fork out for his services – he has a contract at Barça until 2017. Upd. at 21:27 After just a few weeks in the Premier League, Song has already established himself in the West Ham team.  And it seems reasonable to expect him to leave the Catalan club for good next summer. Carlos Domínguez CEST Sergio Busquets, Javier Mascherano, Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Samper are all now ahead of him in the pecking order. Either way, it’s hard to imagine Song will have a future back at Camp Nou. They may have to loan Song to the Anfield club to start with and then sell him at a later date, as Manchester United have done with Radamel Falcao.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON – Take a slow deep breath, then exhale just as slowly. Can you take fewer than 10 breaths a minute? Research suggests breathing that slowly for a few minutes a day is enough to help some people nudge down bad blood pressure. Why would that brief interlude of calm really work? A scientist at the National Institutes of Health thinks how we breathe might hold a key to how the body regulates blood pressure – and that it has less to do with relaxation than with breaking down all that salt most of us eat. Now Dr. David Anderson is trying to prove it, with the help of a special gadget that trains volunteers with hypertension to slow-breathe. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmatesIf he’s right, the work could shed new light on the intersection between hypertension, stress and diet. “If you sit there under-breathing all day and you have a high salt intake, your kidneys may be less effective at getting rid of that salt than if you’re out hiking in the woods,” said Anderson, who heads research into behavior and hypertension at the NIH’s National Institute on Aging. An estimated 65 million Americans have high blood pressure, putting them at increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, blindness and dementia. Many don’t know it. Anyone can get high blood pressure, measured as a level of 140 over 90 or more. But being overweight and inactive, and eating too much salt all increase the risk. Indeed, losing weight, physical activity and cutting sodium are the most effective lifestyle changes people can make to lower blood pressure. Still, most hypertension patients need medications, too.last_img read more

first_imgAT LEAST A dozen Bank of Ireland staff in Donegal have pocketed whopping bonuses, can reveal.Bank of Ireland has many generous perks for its senior executives.And despite the taxpayers’ bail-out the bank has continued to pay handsome wads of cash to senior staff. And today a Donegal Bank of Ireland insider told “There’s a lot of media attention surrounding Dublin executives but at least a dozen here in Donegal have banked big bonuses.“The coverage of the situation in Dublin is a smokescreen. Senior executives across the country get annual bonuses and a few in here have landed some too.“I personally don’t think any bonuses should be paid after the collapse of the banks. If I was given one, I’d hand it back. It belongs to the country now.”Asked how much was paid out, our source replied: “You are looking at between €10k and €50k.” The chief executive of the Bank of Ireland gets an annual cash allowance of €34,000 for his car on top of his basic salary of €690,000.Head of retail Des Crowley receives an annual car cash allowance of €27,500 along with €20,000 for entrance fees to clubs, and €7,000 for annual membership fees. Both also receive free tax advice.The bank refuses to discuss bonuses, claiming commercial confidentiality.EXCLUSIVE: DONEGAL BANK STAFF POCKET HUGE BONUSES was last modified: December 18th, 2010 by gregShare 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
