Boaudu, Stengs and Malen: new chips on the transfer board

first_imgObviously one of the targets is still Neymar, who never falls off the podium today. The Sport newspaper titled its cover with “Neymar prepares his departure ”and highlights that the Brazilian considers that his time in the French League has already come to an end adding that PSG is already“ beginning to assume his departure ”.But if the name of Ney is recurring, the three that Mundo Deportivo contributes are not, which under the headline “Talent oranje” speaks of three young talents from the Dutch league aged between 19 and 21 who are under the radar of the Camp Nou technicians. It is a pair of players from AZ Alkmaar, Calvin Strengs and Myron Boadu, as well as PSV attacker Donyell Malen, three new pieces for the transfer board. The stoppage of sports activity due to the coronavirus crisis is not totally affecting the sports planning of the various teams, which are preparing to resume activity when this nightmare passes and the confinement phase has been passed. It is in this context that names of possible reinforcements emerge, such as those of the Dutch attackers Malen, Stengs and Boadu.The technical secretariat of Culé is working on the project for the new season. In fact, these are the months when you should be working more intensively in pursuit of goals. Negotiations may have been stranded or frozen by the obvious difficulties of the current times, but work on player reports continues.last_img read more

Soniewein Residents Suffer Foul Drainage Smell

first_imgThe Central Monrovia Soniewein residents have expressed annoyance over the foul smell from the refuse filled gutter that passes through Center, Lynch and Johnson Streets.Residents interviewed yesterday complained that they are greatly offended by the disgusting sewage system and the filthy drainage that they have endured for years.“The horrible smell in these nearby communities is an embarrassment to us,” a resident complained, “and those of us who live here, including the Montgomery Dry Cleaning on Lynch Street, the Church of Lord Aladura on Center Street among others want the city corporation to do something about it.”Residents pointed out to our reporter, “This gutter needs to be cleaned to ensure we have a safe environment for ourselves and our children and so some authority must do something about this.”A 74-year-old resident, who identified himself as Dweh, said, “When we get in the rainy season months of May, June and July we will not be able to live here in peace.” He said he has lived in the community for the last twenty three years. “We need the Monrovia City Mayor to have compassion on us and send her workers to come help us clean the drainage,” he pleaded.When contacted, the Chairman for the Joint Committee Responsible for the Central Monrovia Drainage System (JCRCMD), Rodney P. Anderson, said his committee has met with a representative of the Ministry of Public Works, Deputy for Technical Operations Mr. Claude Langley on the matter. He quoted Langley regretting the filthy condition and said the Ministry of Public Works has a tradition of cleaning the drainage every year before the raining season.He reported that Langley informed his committee that a budget of US$2,000 has already been allotted (by the Public Works Ministry) to clean all drainages in central Monrovia.Anderson meanwhile appealed to the community residents to remain patient as the Joint Committee responsible for the cleaning of the drainage will do its duty at the right time.He, however, frowned on the various community chairmen that have neglected to attend regular meetings to be updated on the status of community issues in Soniewein.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Healthy female bison born to Hart Park herd

first_imgPepe said the full bellies on the rest of the female bison in the herd could mean more little ones are on the way. “I think we’ll be seeing a few more babies this season,” she said.

Anyone interested in submitting a name can e-mail Pepe at NEWHALL – Spring is in the air at Santa Clarita’s historic Hart Park where the stork has just delivered a new female bison.

Debbie Pepe, the animal keeper at the Los Angeles County-owned park, said animal caretakers were doing their routine check of the herd when they noticed Bison No. 21 – the new momma – wasn’t with the rest of the herd. “We found her in the little canyon area, and the baby was bonding with mom and nursing – what we check for to determine a healthy baby,” Pepe said.

Keita is ‘unbelievable’, says Mane

first_img“I think he brings plenty in our team and I think it’s also not easy for the new players to come into the Premier League but for him, he’s unbelievable,” Mane told Premier League Productions.“He’s started great and we are here to help him more to get to his best and I am sure he will do something special here.”The two players were teammates at RB Salzburg for a brief spell back in 2014, and Mane has revealed that he kept in touch with Keita after they parted ways.“I think I spoke to Naby every single weekend because I knew him before, we played together in Salzburg. [I was there for] two years and then I left and came to the Premier League and he went to Germany,” added Mane.“Still we kept in touch all the time and the first time he talked to me about Liverpool I said ‘welcome, this is a family, not a club – you will enjoy it’.

CON: Measure to make surgery harder for some

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, which is leading the coalition against the measure, has raised about $1.6 million for its campaign. Other opponents include the American Civil Liberties Union, the California National Organization for Women and the California Nurses Association. Opponents note that teen pregnancy and abortion rates in California have been steadily declining over the past decade. The teen pregnancy rate in California dropped from about 70 per 1,000 female teens in 1970 to 44 per 1,000 in 2001, according to a survey by the Public Policy Institute of California. The abortion rate has also dropped, according to some estimates. Although the state itself does not maintain complete data, The Alan Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit research group that supports abortion rights, projects that the state rate among women ages 15-19 has dropped from 76 per 1,000 in 1988 to 36 per 1,000 in 2005. The proposition’s authors anticipated concerns about teens from broken and abusive homes, and included a provision that allows teens to seek court approval for an exemption to the notification. But opponents say that expecting a scared teenager to understand and navigate the court system and discuss her unplanned pregnancy and difficult family situation with a judge is unrealistic. SACRAMENTO – Opponents of Proposition 73 say it would pose health risks to pregnant teens, forcing them to resort to illegal abortions or travel out of state for the procedure. And, opponents add, teens from dysfunctional homes where they may suffer physical or sexual abuse would have an especially difficult time telling their parents they are pregnant. “At first, it sounds like common sense that parents would want to know what happens to their daughters – and I as a parent would love to know what’s happening with my daughters, too,” said Mary-Jane Wagle, president of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. “But when you begin to think a little more about what happens in the real world, you realize that the parent-notification requirement doesn’t work for every family and every situation, and could cause very dangerous situations for teens who feel they cannot tell their parents.” “The reality is that to expect a young person to stand in front of a judge and discuss these issues that are so private and intimate with a virtual stranger is ludicrous,” said Dr. Johanna Olson of Encino, who specializes in pediatrics and adolescent medicine.
