Zidane considers various possible scenarios for the pandemic

first_imgThere are other scenarios in which the technical staff can already work after the possibilities are transferred to them. Everyone is more optimistic over time, but what is really important for the coaching staff is when the squad can start working, if it can have a week before the competition resumes, or two. It will be essential for them to know when the Government will lift the Alarm State. It is almost certain that it will remain, at least, until after Easter. Serve this comparison: In the Wuh regionStill, the first day without infection (last Thursday) came after eight weeks of confinement. ANDIn Spain, the contagion curve is more pronounced than in China and Italy, and the State of Alarm decreed that facilitates physical distancing on March 14 …JAVIER SORIANO & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Zidane, this season.JAVIER SORIANO (AFP) In this first scenario in which Zidane works, which is valued as the most feasible, The workload of this express preseason to be carried out would be moderate to avoid risk of injury in the matches, which will have to be played so often (every 48 hours). It would be a kind of NBA model in which you play a lot and hardly train. The technical body Real Madrid is busy these days in find the strategy suitable for trying to keep the squad in top shape when the season resumes, should this ever happen. The club’s leaders have already transferred to Zidane the different scenarios that LaLiga proposes for the return of the matches. There is two key dates that will allow us to know the terms of this anomalous situation in the Madrid region, according to the mayor José Luis Martínez-Almeida. The first is March 25 or 26 “when it will be known if the contagion curve is flattened a little with respect to the measurements that have been taken ”. The other is the April 15, “to see if the number of people discharged is higher than the number of people who are infected.” But, obviously, football will have to adapt to government measures.No one escapes, and neither does Zidane, who Given the situation, the most feasible is that, if the competition resumes, it is done on the deadline that would allow the domestic championships and the Champions to finish before June 30. For this, the League would have to resume around the 15 th of May. This is the main scenario in which Zidane works. Between May 15 and June 30 the 11 days would have to be disputed remaining from LaLiga and the Champions League qualifiers until the final. That would even require that they dispute games every 48 hours.center_img LaLiga calculates that the clubs have 28 percent of their contracts for television rights left to them, that is to say, 550 millions of euros. At stake is also the money that enters through ticket offices and fertilizers. They want to finish the competitions. That is why there is another scenario in which it works, the worst of all, and that is that UEFA and FIFA process an emergency measure so that the contracts of the players can end a few days later on June 30, as well as the contracts of the loaned players, and that the Champions, the Europa League and the domestic Leagues may end in the first fortnight of July… With the panorama so uncertain, Zidane try together Bettoni and the physical trainer Gregory Dupont, they prepare all the epossible scenarios.last_img read more

Local group wants ALC free B.C.

first_imgPhoto: Dan McLeod and Anne Clayton of Citizens for Agriculture Land Reform presenting case to PRRD/ Erica FisherA local organization wants the Agricultural Land Commission out of Northern B.C.- Advertisement – Citizens for Agricultural Land Reform are calling for a five-year moratorium on the Agricultural Land Reserve east of the Rockies.They say the ALR is an unnecessary restriction.Instead, they suggest a Delegation Agreement which would give local elected representatives control over agricultural land.According to representative Anne Clayton, less than 40 per cent of the agricultural land in Northeast B.C. is being farmed.Advertisement She claims the ALC is more focussed on preserving agricultural land rather than encouraging farming in collaboration with other communities of interest, like local farmers and ranchers who want to service the oil and gas industry on their own farms.Instead, she says farmers are treated like “criminals” when they participate in the oil and gas industry.Tim Caton, Director of Area “E”, says the Citizens for Agricultural Land Reform are on the right track.”I believe that anybody who owns their land, who has bought and paid for their land with blood, sweat and tears has the right to do with their land when it comes to economic development.”Advertisement If after four years the moratorium is determined to be working, the organization would ask for complete abolition of the ALR in the area.For now, getting anything to happen is still a slow process.The organization has met with the ALC as well as taken B.C. Agricultural Minister Don McRae on a helicopter tour of areas both east and west of the Rockies.They say he’s keen to make changes, but for now they are only looking for the support of Peace River Regional District.last_img read more

My son died of Aids: Mandela

first_imgMandela called for publicity to be given to HIV/Aids, saying that this was the only way for the disease to be recognised as a “normal illness, like TB, like cancer”.Nelson Mandela disclosed his son died of an AIDS related illness and showed the way to South Africans struggling to break the stigma that still surrounded the disease in the country. (Image: Flickr)Brand South Africa ReporterBy disclosing that his son Makgatho had died due to Aids-related factors, Nelson Mandela showed the way to South Africans struggling to break the stigma that still surrounded the disease in the country.Makgatho Lewanika Mandela died on 6 January 2005, aged 54. He was Nelson Mandela’s last surviving son; younger son Thembekile died in 1969 while Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island.Mandela called for publicity to be given to HIV/Aids, saying that this was the only way for the disease to be recognised as a “normal illness, like TB, like cancer”.He made the statement at a press conference held on the afternoon of his son’s death, surrounded by members of his family.Mandela had spent the last months by his son’s bedside after he had been admitted to Linksfield Park Clinic in November 2004. Speculation about the cause of Makgatho’s illness was raised after his wife Zondi died of pnuemonia in 2003.Makgatho Lewanika Mandela was a son from Mandela’s first marriage, to Evelyn Mase. He was a lawyer in the healthcare industry. He leaves behind four sons, Mandla, Ndaba, Mbuso and Andile.CourageMandela’s announcement was described as “courageous”, as few prominent South Africans had publicly discussed the effect of HIV/Aids on their families. A notable exception was Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, who announced in 2004 that his son had died from the disease.According to Department of Health figures, 5.6-million South Africans were estimated to be HIV-positive by the end of 2003.The Treatment Action Campaign, an NGO that campaigned for greater access to HIV treatment in South Africa, expressed its condolences to the Mandela family.In a statement, the organisation “saluted” the family’s “decision to disclose the cause of death in the national interest of raising awareness . and destigmatising Aids, during a time of great personal pain and loss.”StigmaUNAids executive director Peter Piot called Mandela’s acknowledgement “a demonstration of the practical leadership that [he] gives to the international efforts to fight stigma and discrimination”.The battle against HIV/Aids was central to Mandela’s mission in later years. The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, started in 1995 to address the needs of young people facing homelessness, joblessness and poverty, directs a large part of its resources where the country needs them most – to Aids orphans.Mandela was also the driving force behind 46664, a worldwide campaign to raise global awareness about HIV/Aids and funds to fight the pandemic in Africa.Speaking at the 14th International Aids Conference in Paris in 2003, Mandela said that a “tragedy of unprecedented proportions” was unfolding in Africa.“Aids today in Africa is claiming more lives than the sum total of all wars, famines and floods and the ravages of such deadly diseases as malaria . We must act now for the sake of the world . Aids is no longer a disease, it is a human rights issue.”The Mandelas presented a united front the memorial service for Makgatho, held at the Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg. Mandela sat flanked by his wife Graca and grandson Mandla, with his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and their daughters, Zinzi and Zenani, two rows away.Among the mourners present were Deputy President Jacob Zuma and Cabinet ministers Trevor Manuel, Charles Nqakula, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi and Jabu Moleketi.After the service, Makgatho’s body was flown to Mthatha in the Eastern Cape. His funeral took place in the Mandela family graveyard.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See Using Brand South Africa material.last_img read more

SA, Vietnam strengthen relations

first_img8 October 2010 Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe reiterated South Africa’s commitment to strengthening cooperation with Vietnam as he ended a two-day visit to that country on Thursday. In meetings with Vietnamese Vice-President Nguyen Thi Doan and Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, Motlanthe emphasised there was vast potential to expand trade and investment between the two countries. During the talks, both countries committed to increasing the volumes of trade to reach a target of US$1-billion over the next few years. Motlanthe said there was a need to create awareness among South African and Vietnamese business communities regarding the business opportunities that existed in both countries. The leaders also signed an agreement in the field of tourism and a memorandum of understanding in the field of water resources. Motlanthe expressed his appreciation for Vietnam’s support for South Africa’s bid to be elected as a non-permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2011/12. “We have noted that Vietnam is bidding for this position for the period 2020-2021, for which elections are to be held in 2019, and that Vietnam has requested South Africa’s support. We are considering this.” South Africa will also explore ways of cooperating with Vietnam to fight illegal trade in rhino horn, Motlanthe said. “We have already submitted a request that a technical delegation from South Africa be received in Vietnam later in October 2010 to discuss the issue. The objective of the visit is cooperation, and the Vietnamese counterparts would be invited to pay a reciprocal visit to South Africa to share experiences.” Vietnam is a developing market economy, and the country continues to achieve rapid growth in agriculture and industrial production, construction and housing. A second meeting of the two countries will be held in South Africa in the course of next year. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Remembering Lucky Dube, ten years on

first_imgIn October 2007, one of South Africa’s greatest musical sons died. Celebrate the life and art of reggae artist Lucky Dube with five of his greatest songs. Lucky Dube was one of South Africa’s best known and most successful musicians. He died on 18 October 2007. (Image: Gallo Music South Africa)CD AndersonLucky Dube was an icon of South African music. The singer-songwriter singlehandedly put South African reggae on the international music map. With numerous successful and critically acclaimed albums, an electrifying stage presence and as an outspoken commentator on political and cultural issues of the day, by 2007 Dube was at the peak of his career and a respected elder of South African music.His death that year, killed during a hijacking outside his Johannesburg home, was both shocking and tragic. Millions of South Africans mourned the unnecessary death of a true musical legend.Born in Ermelo, Mpumalanga, in 1964, Dube found his love for music in school choirs and short-lived mbaqanga (Zulu pop) garage bands, before becoming a devout Rastafarian and dedicated reggae musician.Inspired by Jamaican musicians Jimmy Cliff and Peter Tosh, Dube mixed the latter’s socio-political messaging with the former’s pop music sensibility. His second album, Think About The Children, released in 1985, was the first of many hugely successful albums he would record over the next 20 years. In 1993, his album Victims sold more than one million copies, and he found audiences across the rest of Africa, in the Caribbean and Europe, where he toured prolifically.Lucky Dube was one of South Africa’s best known and most successful musicians. He died on 18 October 2007. (Image: Gallo Music South Africa)His music helped spread the popularity of reggae around the world and bridge the cultural divides in the African diaspora, particularly for fans in Europe looking for a common spiritual reconnection to Africa. Asked shortly before his death what inspired his music, Dube answered: “People… looking at people, watching [their] movements, the things they do. My songs are [about] real-life situations and experiences.”During the height of Dube’s popularity, in the last days of apartheid in the late 1980s and early 1990s, his music would often be the soundtrack of a country in change. With lyrics that celebrated humanity and dignity, and inspired many to reach across the cultural divide, Dube’s music was considered a great reconciliator of South Africans from all walks of life.Not to mention that reggae music itself, with its catchy melodies and addictive rhythms, is guaranteed to always get everyone dancing.At heart a family man who shunned the excesses of the music business, Dube professed his pride in and love for his wife Zanele Mdluli and their two children, Nkulee and Thokozani, who both followed their father’s footsteps into music after his death.Lucky Dube was one of South Africa’s best known and most successful musicians. He died on 18 October 2007. (Image: Gallo Music South Africa)To commemorate the ten-year anniversary of his death, Dube’s long-time recording company, Gallo Music South Africa, has released a double-album compilation titled The Times We’ve Shared. It features not only his biggest hits but also three previously unreleased songs as well exclusive recordings some of his most iconic live performances.Click here to listen and purchase the album.

Ryan Lee, Aug. 7

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The current weather has helped the beans quite a bit and I am hoping for a modest recovery there. I think the corn is what it is. After the corn tassels, we say around here that it is hiding its sins. When you ride around in a pickup truck it doesn’t look to bad, but when you get in the combine you see what is really out there. We can live in denial for a little while until the combine hits the field. We are still going to have a crop but I think it will be highly variable. I think it will be one of those years where one day we will set a record for bushels handled on the better farms and the next day we could set a record for acres harvested in a day with the fields of poorer crops. We could be setting records for one end and then the other.We did spray three fields of corn. We have a love-hate relationship with split planters. You can get some very valuable information on hybrids, but then when you have one that is more susceptible to disease, you wonder whether to spray or not.We have had about three-quarters of an inch of rain this month so far and the crazy thing is that we wanted it and we’d like to have a little more. It was amazing how quickly the stress showed up with the temperatures in the 90s. The corn has no root system and started to curl up like it had been dry all along.On the soybeans, we made almost blanket applications of fungicides. We had varying levels of disease, but my brother said that even at 10 miles an hour you could still see the frogeye. We got to it as soon as we were able.We just had the county and the state fair and I am really proud of the job that my girls and nieces did at the fair with their livestock projects.last_img read more
