The BarçaIn addition, you are required to wait for the intervention and its official result to confirm that absence of Dembélé will reach five months. This will ensure the signing of a LaLiga striker who, at this time, is still an unknown. Discarded by the Angel club, and with the doubt of what bureaucratic efforts the club can do, the signing also presents a debate. Ousmane I trembled traveled yesterday to Finland. This morning goes through the prestigious hands of Doctor Lasse Lampainen, which will intervene in a complete break of the proximal tendon of the right leg. A shocking case, since Dembélé was operated now three years ago from the same injury in the other limb, the left, after that senseless heel in Getafe that was reproached by Valverde himself. his medical picture, however much Barca becomes the optimist, it is absolutely worrying. A stream of criticism believes that should not afford a signing-patch. Not only because of the experience with Boateng and the damage it generated in terms of image. Also for the true utility it can have in the game of Barça. Another sector considers incorporation essential after casualties of Suárez and Dembélé. Be of the level that is.

Martín assumed the club’s presidency after Florentino Pérez’s resignation in February 2006. In those two months, the team did not lose a league game, but was eliminated from the Champions League by Arsenal. On April 26, the board of directors decided to call elections for the club’s presidency against his opinion, which led to his resignation. During the process he was temporarily replaced by Luis Gómez Montejano. At first he suggested that he would run for those elections, but ultimately he did not. The chosen one would be Ramón Calderón. Fernando Martín Álvarez, who was interim president of Real Madrid between February 2006 and April of the same year and owner of the company Martinsa, He has left the ICU of the Puerta de Hierro Hospital in Madrid, where he was admitted in a serious condition suffering from coronavirus. At the moment, he has been transferred to the area of intermediate care.Fernando Martín, 72, who was not afflicted with any previous serious illness, fHe was hospitalized last Monday for coronavirus, the same disease that two days earlier caused the death of Lorenzo Sanz, another former president of Real Madrid.
Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz will face hosts Chile at Estadio Sausalito in Viña del Mar in a friendly match today as part of preparations for the upcoming Copa America Centenario. Match time is 6:30 p.m. The third-ranked Chile, under new manager Juan Antonio Pizzi, have been very inconsistent recently and will be hoping for a good result against Jamaica. In South American World Cup qualifying they lost recently to Uruguay (3-0) and Argentina (2-1) before defeating Venezuela 4-1. The Reggae Boyz were the invited team for last year’s edition of Copa America in Chile, but lost all three matches by 1-0 scorelines. Coach Winfried Sch‰fer will be hoping on an improved showing in the tournament this time. Juan Antonio Pizzi has largely stuck to the players who earned the Copa title under Jorge Sampaoli last year with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas as the key men once again. Reggae Boyz team manager Roy Simpson told The Gleaner earlier this week: “The Chile game is to look at the local players and areas that need addressing.” LAST WARM-UP Like Jamaica, Chile are preparing for the Copa Centenario tournament and today’s clash with the Reggae Boyz is the last warm-up before they play Argentina, Bolivia, and Panama in the tournament in June. Jamaica will be looking to hit form before they take on Venezuela, Mexico and Uruguay in the Copa America Centenario. With the injury to Darren Mattocks, all eyes will be on Giles Barnes to find the ball in the back of the net alongside Dever Orgill, Simon Dawkins, Clayton Donaldson and Allan Ottey. Sch‰fer has already said that today’s match is a big chance for the local-based Reggae Boyz to impress, therefore, Montego Bay United’s Ottey, who has been with the squad for some time, and Andrew Vanzie of Humble Lion, Harbour View’s Rosario Harriott, and Portmore Michael Binns could see some action as Jamaica prepares for the Copa America tournament and crucial World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Haiti in September The squad is: Gareth McLeary, Ryan Thompson, Michael Hector, Dever Orgill, Clayton Donaldson, Giles Barnes, Jobi McAnuff, Duwayne Kerr, Je-Vaughn Watson, Lee Williamson, Simon Dawkins, Adrian Mariappa, Kemar Lawrence, Jermaine Taylor, Ricardo Morris, Damano Solomon, Andrew Vanzie, Rosario Harriott and Allan Ottey.

Mining activities are accounting for 85 per cent of Guyana’s deforestation and degradation rates while logging is responsible for 2.5 per cent yet the country continues to keep its deforestation rates relatively lower than many others.According to Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, with plans moving apace to preserve Guyana’s forests – while mining and logging continue to have a negative impact –the country had its lowest rates of deforestation.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman“It shows that we are striking a good balance between mining and forest operations and rather forest conservation. So under our agreement with Norway in 2017, we certainly recorded the lowest rates – which is historic. So Guyana has been pointed out, as recording good figures, good stewardship of its forest,” Trotman said.The Minister explained that there could not be mining activities without some disturbance of the land and this was not an indictment on the part of miners, but a simple fact. According to the Minister, better stewardship and management have resulted in lower rates of deforestation in Guyana.“Also, correspondingly with lower rates of deforestation, we are also seeing higher yields in gold production. So, between 2016 and 2018, we have crossed the 600,000 ounces’ mark repeatedly. Before 2015, the highest declarations of gold were 456,000 ounces and we are now over 600,000 ounces, so gold production is up, but deforestation is down.”Minister Trotman acknowledged that while there was notable progress in these areas, works still needed to be conducted in the area of reclamation in relation to gold mining.“But the miners will tell you that they are only recovering right not even 50 per cent of gold, so they are going back to some of those tailings as they call them to rework them, so the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) are working to narrow that gap. So, yes, it is a high rate, but at the same time, as I said, we are doing better in terms of our deforestation rates as well,” he noted.In 2016, the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government had accused former President Bharrat Jagdeo of distributing all of Guyana’s productive forest; hence, allowing the rape of the country’s forest.However, Jagdeo debunked those claims, stating that the Norwegians, every year to determine payments, send international assessors and these were people who come here and examine the deforestation rate for the year.This is a reference to the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) concept, in conjunction with the Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS), which involved Guyana managing its forests and reducing deforestation in order to reduce carbon emissions while getting paid for it.

BURBANK — Hours after Scott Weiland and his wife brawled in a luxury hotel, the Velvet Revolver rocker’s wife was arrested for torching his $10,000 wardrobe outside their Toluca Lake home, police said today. Mary Weiland, 31, was booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after officers responding to a “female burning clothes” call at 10 p.m. Saturday found a trash can full of smoldering clothes, Sgt. Mathew Ferguson said. Officers telephoned Weiland and he said the wardrobe was worth $10,000, the sergeant said. The couple’s two children, ages 4 and 6, were placed in the custody of Weiland friends. The arrest culminated a rowdy weekend for the couple. A few miles away at the boutique Graciela Hotel on Pass Avenue, the couple got into an argument that left two hotel rooms vandalized, Ferguson said. Police were called to the hotel at 3:47 p.m. Saturday. “Both rooms had damage and items scattered, broken plates and things. It was looking definitely like items were deliberately destroyed,” the sergeant said. Mary Weiland was at the hotel with the couple’s children when police arrived. She voluntarily went to the police station to give a statement and Weiland, 39, showed up later with his attorney to give a statement. “She is a suspect in the vandalism. He is not,” Ferguson said. No charges were filed and the couple left. Ferguson said it was up to hotel owners to decide if they want the woman prosecuted for vandalism, which would be a felony because damage exceeded $400. Ferguson said the amount of damage to the two rooms wasn’t known, only that it exceeded $400. A Graciela Hotel receptionist said Monday that there would be no comment about the incident. The 100-room Graciela Hotel describes itself as a “home away from home” for many of its guests. Many of the rooms and suites have full kitchenettes for long term stays. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Mario Gotze has left Bayern Munich to re-sign for former club Borussia Dortmund, the Bundesliga outfit has confirmed.The 24-year-old Germany midfielder has been linked with moves to both Liverpool, coached by former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, and Tottenham during the summer transfer window.But Gotze, who still had a year remaining on his contract at the Allianz Arena, has instead chosen to return to boyhood club Dortmund in a £22million deal, penning a contract until 2020.Gotze, who scored the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, left Dortmund for their fierce rivals in 2012 after Bayern Munich triggered his £32m release clause.But he struggled to live up to that price tag with the German champions and was frozen out of the first-team under Pep Guardiola last season.Having left the Westfalenstadion to a chorus of boos and chants of ‘Judas’ from the passionate Dortmund fans, Gotze has vowed to win them over after sealing a surprise return.In an open letter to fans he published on facebook, the Germany star said: “When I switched from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich in 2013, that was a conscious decision that I will not hide myself from today.“Three years later, at 24 years of age, I look with different eyes at my former decision.“I understand that back then many fans could not understand my decision.“When I return to my home, I want to try and convince everyone – especially those who do not receive me with open arms – with my performances.“My aim is to play again my best football. For all of us, the club and the BVB fans.”Borussia Dortmund confirmed the news on Thursday night, and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke welcomed Gotze back to the club.“I am personally very pleased that Mario has decided to Borussia Dortmund,” he said.“I have, since his departure in 2013, always hoped that he will one day return to us.“My thanks go to this point explicitly at Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “We have negotiated with Bayern in this transfer window three changes. All our conversations were marked by great professionalism and mutual trust.”Bayern chief Rummenigge added: “The negotiations were very fair and serious. We’d like to thank Borussia Dortmund, Mario, his father as well as his agent for that. “I think the transfer is a good solution for all parties. “FC Bayern thanks Mario Gotze for three years wearing the Bayern shirt and wishes him all the best for the future.” 1 Mario Gotze has sealed a return to Borussia Dortmund
CASTAIC – After nearly two weeks of deadly clashes, a top jail official went cell to cell Wednesday, telling inmates that a systemwide lockdown will end when they stop fighting. “When the smoke cleared, I began trying to dialogue,” said Chief Sam Jones, head of custodial operations for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. “House rules are, every man has a right to come into the system and do his time without having to worry about being attacked, injured or ultimately murdered. I told them I owed them that, and I owed their family and friends that.” Jones delivered his ultimatum Tuesday to jails in Castaic’s Pitchess Detention Center, where racial brawls last week killed one inmate and injured dozens more. About 3,000 inmates in nearby Riverside County were in the sixth day of a lockdown there, but officials said cells were peaceful and described the lockdown as a precaution in case Los Angeles County violence spilled over. In adjacent San Bernardino County, black and Hispanic inmates on a jail bus fought with fists and razor blades Tuesday morning. Fifty-five handcuffed and chained inmates were heading from the West Valley Detention Center to a court when a fight broke out in the bus and the driver turned back, said Robin Haynal, spokeswoman for the county Sheriff’s Department. As the inmates were being removed from the bus, fighting broke out again and deputies used a “sting ball” grenade to stop it. Two inmates were slightly injured by the rubber pellets and a third “had been severely kicked by another inmate,” Haynal said. It was the third fight on a jail bus from the detention center. Two earlier clashes injured 14 inmates. It was unclear whether the fighting had a direct link to the violence in Los Angeles County, which has the nation’s largest jail system, but San Bernardino inmates were aware of the problems, Haynal said. In Los Angeles County, Hispanic and black evangelical pastors announced plans Wednesday for a 24-hour vigil in suburban Gardena to pray for an end to the jail violence. Sheriff’s officials have been under intense pressure to quell the fighting. On Tuesday, the county Board of Supervisors criticized the department for failing to isolate high-risk inmates. A report to supervisors a year ago warned that it was “not permissible” to mix inmates considered to pose a greater threat of violence with offenders of lesser risk. The report by Merrick Bobb, who oversees the Sheriff’s Department for the supervisors, was commissioned after five inmates were killed in seven months in late 2003 and early 2004. The inmate who died Tuesday had been arrested on suspicion of drug possession in Long Beach and was considered a moderate security risk while several others in his six-man cell were in the second-highest risk classification. Some prisoners identified as ringleaders of the recent violence have been shifted out of dormitories and into one- and two-man cells, Jones said. “I feel that we’ve identified most of them,” he said. Whitmore and Jones said they believed the battles are losing momentum. Fights have been shorter, more infrequent, and resulted in fewer injuries, they said. The latest clash was reported Tuesday night and involved about 100 Men’s Central Jail inmates. Blacks and Latinos traded punches shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday in a dormitory but deputies using tear gas and sting-ball pellets quickly broke up the fight, Whitmore said. Four inmates were treated for minor injuries, he said. “We’re winning. We’re doing OK,” Jones said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

More than 18,000 inmates have been denied visits, phone calls, TV access and other privileges because of the violence between black and Hispanic inmates. Jones told The Associated Press that he promised inmates they would get their privileges back when peace is restored. “When I left last night, each dorm applauded and said thank you,” he said. “These people want their mail,” Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said. “They want to watch TV. They want to get back to, if you will, some kind of regular existence behind bars.”
