Ansu smells like a star

first_imgOn December 4, Barça officially announced Ansu’s armor. He economically improved his contract, which expired in 2022, with the possibility of extending it two more seasons, until 2024. His termination clause went from 100 million to 170 million, but that will change soon. As soon as he becomes a player of the first team, very soon, Ansu will have a clause of 400 million euros.In the background is the European Championship. With two games in the U21, Luis Enrique has admitted that they watch the player, a process that has already started the National Team in the era of Robert Moreno. It might seem hasty, but Ansu is not going to be scared to keep breaking records. It seems that, with all the world’s reserves, a star has been born. The process of Ansu deludes in the club. It is burning the stages well. All with a lot of determination. Ansu wants to arrive and at the club they are willing to give him the tools he needs. The fundamental, control your media boom. At the moment, the player, who still has a record of the subsidiary, maintains his customs. Spend time with young people your age who are halfway between Barça B and Juvenil. With 17 years old, control all the temptations that are going to approach now Being a relevant player can be the most difficult for the club. That is why, in part, it will be important to protect it. Quique Setién’s phrase (“Dembélé is going to leave”) had created a strange suggestion in the surroundings of Barça. As if there were guarantees with a player who has shown himself crystal and who, when he has been in shape, has been irregular, erratic and has been far from being a player of 140 million euros or far. And while everyone seemed to be waiting for Dembélé (which hastens his recovery and could be discharged before Thursday), Ansu Fati, 17 years and 96 days, shook the Camp Nou again with an impressive demonstration of talent. Without the intention of falling into the precipitation, the boy smells like a star.Ansu played his best game with Barça against Levante. In addition to the two goals, he finished five times at goal, generated three scoring chances on his own and gave 109 of 116 correct passes. Setién also highlighted his defensive work. It is evident that, within the field, he is a much more mature player than his age indicates. He almost always makes good decisions and everything he does makes sense and evil well understood in the field. He plays when necessary, overflows when there is one against one of course and, above all, and what is most important for his progression in Barça, it is understood with Messi and the Argentine believes it. His connection in the first goal reminded the one that the Argentine had with Neymar. “I’ve been watching it for many years,” he said after the game. Ansu as if to see what could be understood with Messi with his eyes closed. His connection with the Argentine goes beyond the grass. Leo is sponsoring his first steps and Rodrigo, the brother of Argentine crack, has become one of the Guinean’s trusted advisors.last_img read more

first_imgThe President of the Bomi County Community College (BCCC), Dr. Zobong Norman, has commended the New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) of Rhode Island in the United States for donating 26 desktop computers to the college. The donation is estimated at about US$18,200.NEIT also provided several cartons of textbooks and instructional materials estimated at US$10,000.Dr. Norman also commended General Services Agency Director General Mary Broh for also making a donation of 12 computers and a printer to the college.In an interview with the Daily Observer yesterday, Dr. Norman expressed appreciation for Director Broh’s leadership skills, describing her as “someone who gets things done and for whom he had great admiration.”In a letter, Sarah Warthman, Library Director at NEIT, who played a significant role in securing the text books, said she hoped the donation would help to strengthen Bomi College, and is proud that being a graduate of NEIT, Dr. Norman is providing students at BCCC the highest quality education possible.“If we are helping in any way with this donation, then we are grateful to be a small part of BCCC’s success,” she said.The NEIT donation was made possible through Douglas Sherman, Provost and Special Assistant to the President of NEIT.In a related development, Dr. Norman revealed that Cornell University of New York, through the influence of Samuel Hill, has decided to make a donation of 30 computers to Bomi College.“I took over Bomi College with a single computer but I managed to purchase five, two for the library and three for the school and now we are receiving many computers so that students will not have difficulties,” he said.“That is why I am calling on Bomi citizens and Liberians in general to make their contributions by emulating the examples of the good people who have shown the way to make Bomi College second to none in the country,” Dr. Norman stated.Bomi College is the first community college to be established in the country but due to infighting and lack of oversight the school did not grow, until President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf appointed Dr. Norman as president late last year.Since his tenure, and under the constitutiuon of a new Board of Directors, the college now has a bus; and has also regained accreditation for its nursing program benefiting 140 students.

$63M in contracts awarded for Indian Monument construction

first_imgThe Public Infrastructure Ministry has announced over $63 million in contracts have been awarded for the construction of a supporting structure for the Indian Arrival Monument at the Palmyra Village on the Corentyne, in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), after the base of the structure collapsed last year. Information from the Public Infrastructure Ministry indicates that the works will commence on August 14 and are expected to be completed by October 31.The construction is divided into eight lots and involves the creation of a base and podium for the monument, peripheral structures such as a perimeter walkway and parking area, internal and external landscaping, roadway and drainage, lighting and, a visitor’s gallery, fencing and a security hut.From the eight lots, contracts were awarded for only two so far by the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board. The first lot was awarded to Raffik and Sons General Building Contractors for a sum of $28.6 million while Lot Two has been awarded to A&A Engineering Services for a sum of $34.8 million.The Ministry has also indicated that the contracts for the other six remaining lots will be awarded by the third quarter of this year.“This 12×12 monument is sculpted in bronze and is a visual representation of ordinary Indian people in routine everyday life with each bearing a significant artefact as an ode to the continued traditions brought by forefathers from India translated to current livelihood and practices by Guyanese today,” the Ministry stated.The monument was gifted to Guyana by the Government of India to symbolise the country’s cultural celebration and it was built by MS Collin Mathis and Associates. However, in April 2017, the structure came crashing down which prompted the Indian Government to request a report and it was later related that they offered to send skilled craftsmen to rebuild it.At the time of the collapse, then Regional Chairman David Armogan had stated that the Administration would not be accepting accountability for the poor construction and whole the Public Infrastructure Ministry had said the project falls under the Department of Culture, Youth and Sport within the Education Ministry. A source at the Department told this publication that the Department was not responsible for the project.They then referred the matter to the Ministry of the Presidency while noting that they should accept responsibility.last_img read more

Man guilty of street crimes Gang member given

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Montes’ reasons remains unknown. “What do you think?” asked public defender Mark Davis. He declined comment on the case. Booking records show Montes was still being held at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange as of Tuesday. The robberies happened Aug. 27 in Santa Ana, Sept. 9 in Fullerton, Sept. 15 in Huntington Beach, Sept. 23 in Fullerton and Sept. 25 at a location not named in the criminal complaint. The car burglaries were reported on Sept. 19 and 24 in Fullerton. The charge of injuring an elder adult stems from the Sept. 23 robbery in Fullerton. Montes approached an 82-year-old woman walking to church and held out his hand as if to shake hands, Fullerton police said. A gang member from La Habra will be serving 12 years in state prison for snatching purses from middle-aged and elderly women and for breaking into cars in church parking lots. Alejandro Sanchez Montes, 26, pleaded guilty Oct. 11 to five counts of robbery, street terrorism, inflicting injury to an 82-year-old woman, two counts of burglary, reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance, three counts of fraudulent use of an access card and receiving stolen property, according to Susan Schroeder, public affairs counsel for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. He also admitted to using a firearm and being in a criminal street gang. “Most people plead guilty because they are in fact guilty,” Schroeder said. “I don’t know why he pleaded guilty.” So the woman extended her hand in return. Police said Montes knocked her down, took her purse and fled. She wrote down a partial description of his getaway car in the margins of her Bible. The crime spree ended Sept. 26 after Fullerton police spotted a Dodge Magnum that had been seen in several of the burglaries and robberies. The Dodge ran a red light, broadsided a Volkswagen carrying two women and hit two other vehicles before stopping. Officers arrested Montes and another man who was later sent back to state prison for parole violation. One of the cars hit was driven by an off-duty Fullerton reserve officer. Records with the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation show Montes had prior convictions for drug possession, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled substance for sale and second-degree burglary. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gap Inc. accused of using child labor in India

first_imgNEW DELHI – The Indian children reportedly found making clothes for Gap Inc. should be reunited with their families and compensated by the government, activists said Monday amid a spreading scandal about the use of child labor by the international clothing chain. The reported discovery of children as young as 10 sewing clothes for clothing retailer Gap Inc. in a New Delhi factory has renewed concerns about child labor in India, but government officials offered no comment Monday. “The biggest responsibility here lies with the Indian government – they don’t develop a way of monitoring” factories, said Bhuwan Ribhu, a lawyer who works with Bachpan Bachao Andolan, or the Save Childhood Movement. “International companies hire subcontractors and then forget about it. There is no monitoring at all,” Ribhu added. “Where the Gap is concerned, at least they’ve taken a good pro-active stand against the subcontractors.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Britain’s Observer newspaper on Sunday reported that it had found children making clothes with Gap labels in a squalid factory in New Delhi. It quoted the children as saying they were from poor parts of India and had been sold to the sweatshop by their impoverished families. Some said they were not paid for their work. Gap responded quickly, saying the factory was being run by a subcontractor who was hired in violation of Gap’s policies, and none of the products made there will be sold in its stores. “We appreciate that the media identified this subcontractor, and we acted swiftly in this situation,” Gap spokesman Bill Chandler told The Associated Press on Sunday. “Under no circumstances is it acceptable for children to produce or work on garments.” Child labor remains a widespread problem in India, despite the country’s economic boom and its growing wealth. The government has repeatedly tried to ban the use of child workers – in 1986 outlawing them from working in dangerous industries, such as glassmaking, and last year banning them being employed as domestic servants or in restaurants. But the prohibitions have had only a minimal impact and children’s rights activists estimate that 13 million children are still working in India, with many being used in labor-intensive businesses like carpet-weaving and in dangerous industries, such as making fire crackers. Chandler said Gap requires its suppliers to guarantee that they will not use child labor to produce garments. Gap stopped working with 23 factories last year over violations uncovered by its inspectors. The San Francisco-based company has 90 full-time inspectors who make unannounced visits around the world to ensure vendors are abiding by Gap’s guidelines, he said.
