Powered by Firework LaLiga Santander returns this weekend with joint leaders Barcelona and Real Madrid aiming to continue their 100% records on tricky trips to face Basque sides Real Sociedad and Athletic Club, respectively.Advertisement All four of Spain’s Champions League teams are playing Saturday ahead of the return of UEFA competition next week, with Atletico hosting Eibar and Valencia welcoming Europa League-bound Real Betis.Advertisement Lionel Messi’s four LaLiga strikes so far this season have helped his Barca side currently top the LaLiga Santander standings on goal difference. But the Blaugrana will face a difficult task at La Real’s Anoeta stadium, where the Catalan side won 4-2 last year having drawn one and lost three of their previous four visits.Advertisement Meanwhile, Karim Benzema has been in top form for Real Madrid with four goals over the opening three games, although that form will be tested by an Athletic side unbeaten under their new coach Eduardo Berizzo. Los Leones have also held Los Blancos to draws in their last two LaLiga meetings at San Mames.Down in the capital, Diego Simeone’s Atletico side will be hoping to bounce back from a defeat two weekends ago at Celta and move up the table. Eibar, however, visits the Wanda Metropolitano confident of springing a surprise having drawn there 2-2 as recently as last May.Marcelino’s Valencia has also had an unexpectedly difficult start to 2018/19 and will be looking for a boost against a Betis outfit traveling to Mestalla buoyant from their ‘Gran Derbi’ win against Sevilla before the international break.The weekend’s schedule begins Friday evening when Huesca host fellow LaLiga Santander newboys Rayo Vallecano in the first-ever LaLiga top-flight game at El Alcoraz, with the Aragonese club’s fans keen to see their impressive start continue.Sunday lunchtime brings the action in suburban Madrid, where Leganes host Villarreal with both teams looking for their first LaLiga win of 2018/19. Early afternoon sees Espanyol take on Levante, with each side having registered a win, a draw, and a defeat so far.Sunday’s early evening games have Valladolid aiming for their first goals and first victory of the campaign against Alaves. Getafe visits Sevilla in the late match, with both teams looking to improve on uneven starts to the season.The weekend’s entertainment concludes on Monday evening, when third-placed Celta, still unbeaten under new coach Antonio Mohamed, travel to face a Girona side who have quickly picked up the methods of their incoming manager Eusebio Sacristan.

first_imgJuventus have announced the signing of highly-rated Dutch centre-back Matthijs De Ligt from Ajax.The 19-year-old, who had previously been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona, has signed a five-year contract with the Serie A champions.Juve have paid an initial fee of 75 million euros for a player who helped Ajax reach last season’s Champions League semi-finals and win the Eredivisie title, while reaching the Nations League final with Holland.At the weekend Leiderdorp-born De Ligt was left out of Ajax’s squad for their summer tour to Austria pending a transfer and he arrived in Turin on Wednesday to undergo a medical at Juve’s headquarters.Earlier in the summer the Holland international was expected to join Barcelona, who have signed his former Ajax team-mate Frenkie De Jong, while Premier League club United and Paris St Germain had reportedly been interested in securing his services.De Ligt joins Cristian Romero, Luca Pellegrini, Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot and Merih Demiral as a new signing at Juve, with recently-appointed head coach Maurizio Sarri also bringing veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon back to Turin ahead of a bid for a ninth consecutive league title for the Bianconeri.last_img read more

first_imgNine days after today, the 90-day period to hold elections following the successful passage of the no-confidence motion on December 21, 2018 will come to an end. The elections, as mandated by the Constitution, will not be held by that time, and from what is currently playing out in the country’s political sphere, a constitutional crisis will take effect in just over a week. Its avoidance is through a parliamentary extension which must have the agreement of the Opposition. There may still be hope for that.The Leader of the Opposition had indicated his Party’s willingness to support any necessary extension provided that the President was committed to holding the elections and implemented related mechanisms. That has not happened as the President has thrown the responsibility unto the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) – a move some have branded as an abdication of his constitutional responsibility.That, coupled with his firm position of seeking a reversal of the vote by the court, has confirmed the belief that he and his government are only concerned with avoiding the elections in defiance of the Constitution. From all appearances, the Government seems bent on having the elections within its own set time frame with a seeming preference for 2020. In doing so, it is, by its own action, not just pushing the country into a constitutional crisis, but seems willing to expose all to its impact.That will obviously take a toll on Guyana and Guyanese, and will exacerbate as it prolongs. How that will play out and the severity of its impact is anyone’s guess. It could be a case of hoping for the best, but bracing for the worst. What continues to be bothersome is the Government’s continual defence of its position in not accepting what the Constitution demands regarding a successful no-confidence vote. All of its officials who have spoken publicly on the issue have sought to impose a seemingly alien interpretation at the expense of the rule of law.Even more jarring is to see some from the legal fraternity manufacturing interpretations that have strayed from what is enshrined. Reportedly, the Attorney General suggested that the Constitution is wrong with regard to what it specifies in the circumstances of a no-confidence vote. It begs the obvious question: wasn’t it the same Constitution he sought shelter under to advise the Government when it was in Opposition and when it threatened a no-confidence motion against the Donald Ramotar Administration? If, according to the reports, the Constitution is wrong now, how come it wasn’t wrong then?That, along with other scenarios which have played out, is an escapade of convenience to stay in Government. To therefore say these are mere attempts to hold on to power would be a gross understatement. That brings into focus a particular scenario that no one seems to want to talk about. In fairness, this entity alluded to it some time ago. It’s worth a reminder given the current political context.It can be summed up in one question; what would have been the state of play had the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) taken the same position as the Government following a successful no-confidence vote? To some, it may seem a non-issue on the grounds that the Party would have had no option but to abide by the constitutionally-mandated requirements. To others, the PPP dare not challenge what the said Constitution stipulates. For the latter, no efforts, as evident from history, would have been spared to ensure compliance.In other words, the Government, given all it has done thus far to avoid complying with the Constitution, including appealing what the supreme law says, would have vehemently objected to same had the PPP being unwilling to comply. It would have made the country ungovernable as it did in the past.The aftermath of the 1997 elections is a classic example of it creating an ungovernable environment despite the fact that it was not an issue of unconstitutionality but one of dissatisfaction over the results of that election. Eventually, Caricom intervened and fresh elections were held two years before they were due.These are not manufactured scenarios but realities when the Government while in Opposition refused to accept electoral results. During that period of politically- engineered instability and when the nation was on a rebuilding trajectory, innocent people were harmed, properties destroyed, business stagnated, and the economy took a hit as the country’s international image was tarnished. The then Opposition was adamant the Government should be removed and may have done all it could in that regard.Having walked that road, having fought for what it believed to be right then, having ignored the Constitution now on the no-confidence vote and having led the nation to the precipice of a constitutional crisis, the Government seems unconcerned of the potential negative impacts its action could have on all.That same lack of concern could be placed at its feet during the 1997 related period of instability. Many believe that its actions were wrong then and are wrong now. The Government continues to defend its position, a position that many see as defending an illegality which is what it will be after March 21 if no political resolution is found.last_img read more

first_imgA report that Alonso, 33, thought it was 1995 and he was still in go-karting when he regained consciousness was dismissed as “nonsense” by his manager Flavio Briatore.But Briatore said the circumstances of last month’s crash in Barcelona, which concussed Alonso and gave him at least temporary memory loss, were “very strange”.“I saw footage, which Bernie Ecclestone sent me, where we see that the impact is not so hard,” Briatore told Sky Italia.“(Ferrari’s Sebastian) Vettel is behind, he passes, and you see Fernando crashes without any apparent reason.“We have to see if there is a steering problem. We have not had any information on that from McLaren.”Questions over the incident will be prominent in Melbourne this week as McLaren fight the fall-out and hope their misfiring cars can reach the chequered flag.The celebrated British team has already denied that Alonso suffered an electric shock in the cockpit, and Briatore said tests had not indicated any existing health problems.“If Fernando had had a problem, a heart problem, a small stroke, a blood clot; it can happen even to a great sportsman,” said the Italian.“And we have seen that absolutely all the examinations and tests made on the driver were negative.” – ‘Pain, lots of pain’ –The controversy has raised the pressure on a team that limped through testing, with the MP4-30 clocking only 30 laps during the final session — the least of any team.McLaren have renewed their association with Japanese engine supplier Honda, a partnership which conquered F1 from 1988 to 1991 with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost at the wheel.But the mechanical problems which curtailed their testing look set to keep McLaren uncompetitive for at least the early part of the season.Alonso is also a returning partner after a tempestuous spell in 2007 when he fell out with the team and was embroiled in the “Spygate” scandal before terminating his contract early.The early stages of their reunion have not been promising, although Alonso tried to make light of the crash when he launched a #wheredidyouwakeuptoday thread on Twitter.Alonso is in training for the second race in Malaysia, when he is expected to reclaim his seat from stand-in Kevin Magnussen and begin his partnership with Jenson Button.But regardless of his crash, it could be a long season for an outfit which will start with an uncompetitive car, a high-profile new driver and a rebuilding relationship with Honda.“There is going to be pain, lots of pain,” 1996 world champion Damon Hill told the Daily Mail.“The McLaren-Honda thing has to work at some point, but Formula One is so difficult now. There is so much technology and you are taking on so many strong teams.“I expect a modest beginning, but from whatever they start at you want to see a trajectory which is pushing to regular top sixes and a podium at the end of the season.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000MELBOURNE, March 10- Fernando Alonso’s mysterious crash has put McLaren on the back foot before the Formula One season has even started in what threatens to be another tough year for the team.Speculation over the accident during testing is increasing rather than abating as Alonso prepares to sit out this week’s season-opener in Australia on medical advice.last_img read more

first_imgThe new Alumnus of the Year Award was established this year in honor of the 50th anniversary of the school, which first opened in 1957 as Santa Fe Catholic High School. The awardees were Sallie Younger-Rawlings, Class of 1973; and Michael Peak, Class of 1977. Salutatorian Veronica Pedroza, 17, said there wasn’t one moment or memory of her years at St. Paul that stood out above all others. But, she told her fellow graduates, “within the walls of our classroom, we came to the realization of the limitless bounds of our potential.” “We found our own power, our own strength, and it is bigger now than it ever was,” she added. “So St. Paul Class of 2007 – welcome to the rest of your life.” tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955 Ext. 3051160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! • Photo Gallery: St. Paul, class of 2007 SANTA FE SPRINGS – Senior Nicole Trost never realized how fast time would fly in the four years she spent at St. Paul High School. But as she waited for the school’s annual commencement ceremony to begin Thursday, Trost said she was excited to move beyond high school – and more importantly, she was ready. “You don’t realize it until you get here and look back and see how time just flew,” said Trost, 17, the class valedictorian who is off to the University of Dallas in the fall. “But I’m definitely happy right now – it’s my time to move on,” she added. “I’ll miss people, but people change, and times change.” Hundreds of well-wishers packed the St. Paul High stadium Thursday evening to support the school’s 162 graduates, 98 percent of whom are headed to college and university campuses across the country this fall. “You belong in college, for your potential has not yet been reached,” said Principal Frank Laurenzello, who gave the keynote speech. “Your work at St. Paul has set a foundation for what is in store for you,” he added. “The next rung of the ladder is now set for you, and the tools have been given to you to reach your dreams.” The graduation festivities began at 10 a.m. Thursday with a baccalaureate mass at St. Gregory the Great Church in South Whittier, then the Class of 2007 enjoyed the traditional lunch with school administrators, faculty, staff and the two “Alumnus of the Year” recipients at the Radisson Hotel Whittier. last_img read more

first_imgThis column appears in the current edition of Sport magazine. Follow them on twitter @sportmagukI used to work for a weekly news mag about the voluntary sector, and one year they were silly enough to let me take up a seat at their annual awards evening. Having limited interest in the subject matter, I naturally decided to accompany every passing award (there were a lot of them) with a hearty glass of red wine. The result: me, rolling around on a grass verge outside the venue, battered. Some joker took a photo, which duly appeared on my leaving cover some months later.I woke up the following morning (I was also sick in a company-funded cab home) feeling pretty rank and very ashamed of my performance – and, replete with a can of Diet Coke, made my first job of the working day to apologise to my superiors. They agreed that I had been a massive tit, but also understood that it didn’t detract from my ability to do the job I was paid for.Which, and I bet you couldn’t see where this was going, brings me on to Jack Grealish – the 19-year-old Aston Villa midfielder, who this week excelled himself in Tenerife. Tim Sherwood will not have been overly impressed with the sight of one of his charges sprawled largely unconscious across the street, ably assisted by a lone pack of fags.Grealish has a reputation built on one excellent display in an FA Cup semi and a central role in his club’s escape from relegation at the end of a dismal season. He is by no means the first footballer (or teenager) to get right on it in the off-season, but if I was Sherwood I would be more concerned with his chippy reaction to the images on social media than him having a few too many.The key, which seems so absent from sport these days, is perspective. The media have built Grealish into some kind of world-beater when, in truth, he’s a young talent with a haircut and stupid shinpads. Similarly, his antics – while idiotic, and I should know – are symptomatic of nothing more than a lad getting giddy and having a few too many. Can we please just leave it there and move on?
