  • Rubiales charges against Thebes for the tests in the clubs: “He should be punished; he is unpatriotic”

    first_imgRubiales grew warmer with the passage of his explanation: “The administration has said it, everyone who has a test, masks, gloves, put it at the service of others. And there is someone who is sending tests out there and it is illegal. Must be punished. We all stand out and it is an unpatriotic stocking. We strongly disagree. A different thing is that when there are fewer patients, we will consider it for our categories. But now let’s focus on the one that needs it. You have to lend a hand. ” Luis Rubiales appeared before the media to analyze the situation of Spanish football after the crisis unleashed by the coronavirus. The president of the Federation took the opportunity to send several darts to the president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas. The most striking was in reference to the fact that LaLiga has distributed tests among the clubs so that all its players pass the medical checks immediately, as revealed by AS last Monday.Rubiales was blunt: “It seems irresponsible to me that having patients and life at stake does this. It seems out of the question to me that coronavirus tests are being used when there are people who need it. It seems to me that it is not knowing the reality. If they have all confined us. It doesn’t matter if you are infected or not. Does not matter. The result is the same. And if you have severe symptoms, that person needs a test. Not a footballer. He is going to be isolated. “last_img read more

A second successive defeat, this time against the dangerous Argentine at Kuala Lumpur’s Axiata Arena on Sunday, could see the veteran “National Fist” hang up his gloves for good.But victory for Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs), who has won world titles in an unprecedented eight weight divisions in a glittering 23-year career, would extend his legendary status and his life in the ring beyond his 40th birthday in December.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“I am not saying it will be the last (fight), but it will be the basis to think about (whether) to continue or not,” Pacquiao told AFP at his training camp.But PacMan’s conditioning coach Justin Fortune thinks the world will see “the old Pacquiao” return and silence those who question whether his aging body still has the ability to compete against the world’s best.

(AP Photo/Yam G-Jun)Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao challenges Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse for the World Boxing Association welterweight belt on Sunday knowing defeat could lower the curtain on one of the greatest careers in boxing history.Pacquiao, 39, faced calls to retire from friends, family and even his Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach when he lost the WBO belt to journeyman Australian Jeff Horn a year ago.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Pacquiao is going for his 60th victory since turning pro in 1995, but despite winning 38 of his first 47 fights by knockout, he has not stopped an opponent in nine years.“He looks like the old Pacquiao,” declared Fortune of the boxer who is also an elected senator in the Philippines and is tipped one day to run for president. “His metabolism is ridiculous. He’s a freak.”Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs) paid tribute to Pacquiao but warned that his admiration for one of the world’s greatest pound-for-pound fighters would not stop him from taking his belt back to South America.“He is a great champion but he still hasn’t faced ‘The Machine’,” Argentina’s Matthysse told a pre-fight press conference.“If he decides to retire after I beat him then that is his decision.

  • Condemning wanton defiance of Constitution

    first_imgDear Editor,I have observed that several of the media houses in Guyana underscored the fact that Canada was not one of the signatories when a joint statement was presented by Western diplomats following the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) ruling on July 12. The dictum had stated, “… It is important for the rule of law that all invoked actors abide by its ruling and the relevant provisions of the Constitution. We urge everyone to do so expeditiously”.Many supporters of the Government on social media used Canada’s absence in this latest joint statement by American Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, United Kingdom High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quinn, and European Union Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej Videtic to state that Canada is “neutral” and “indifferent”, and wants no part in the politics of the country. However, nothing could be further from the truth.I contacted the High Commission of Canada to inquire about Canada’s apparent lack of interest to join other Western nations to encourage the politicians to abide with the Court rulings. A top official from the High Commission assured me that Canada has articulated the need for stakeholders to abide by the Constitution, and there is certainly no indifference to the goings-on in the country. Canada is still among the “ABC/EU” bloc that takes a strong interest in the happenings in Guyana.I urge the Guyanese people to contact various local and international outfits to condemn the apparent wanton defiance of the Constitution and let the Government know that it will not be business as usual with such audacious bravado.Yours truly,Dr DevanandBhagwanlast_img read more

  • Hamas government finances choked

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventThe Islamist group’s political wing won Palestinian parliamentary elections in January, leading to a line-by-line review of about $600 million to be paid over the next few years in U.S. assistance programs, from food to roads to training for government workers. The result was the decision to end, at least for now, projects that could even indirectly benefit Hamas, such as road and waterworks construction. The United States will redirect about $100 million from canceled projects to humanitarian assistance such as food and medicine, a 57 percent increase, officials said. However, the United States plans no aid now to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a holdover from the previous moderate Fatah leadership whose future power is uncertain. Washington had hoped Abbas could lead the Palestinians toward a peace deal with Israel and a separate independent Palestinian state, goals that now seem more remote with Hamas in charge. “I don’t rule it out, I don’t rule it in,” Assistant Secretary of State David Welch said of future aid to Abbas. WASHINGTON – The Bush administration said Friday it would cut, suspend or shift up to $411 million in Palestinian aid over the next few years as part of an international effort to deny funds to the radical Hamas movement that has won control of the Palestinian government. The European Union announced that it, too, was cutting off funds, denying the Hamas-led government in the impoverished Palestinian territories the bulk of the foreign underwriting that keeps services running. Both the United States and the European Union regard Hamas, which has pledged violence against Israel, as a terrorist organization. “The new Palestinian government must take responsibility for the consequences of its policies,” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said. Welch said the Bush administration supports Abbas and will continue contacts with him. He gave no explanation for a financial decision sure to further the view among Abbas supporters that the United States has not done enough to strengthen him either in his dealings with Israel or with political rivals. The U.S. humanitarian payments also do not address a current crisis: about 140,000 unpaid employees of the nearly bankrupt Palestinian Authority who with their families account for about a third of the Palestinian population. Last year the Palestinians received $1.3 billion in overseas aid, out of a budget of $1.9 billion. Meanwhile, Abbas and the Palestinian prime minister tried to settle some of their differences Friday after Abbas seized more powers from the Islamic militants, including control over security forces. One senior Hamas official said the group was ready to moderate its position and accept a two-state solution to the conflict with Israel, provided Abbas restored Hamas’ government authority. Abbas favors negotiating a peace deal with Israel. Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said before the meeting with Abbas that they would discuss many issues but that he was unaware of plans to change the government’s position on Israel. Hamas, which took office last week, is under intense international pressure to recognize Israel, renounce violence and accept existing peace agreements. The militant group has balked at meeting the international community’s demands but has also acknowledged it is broke and will have trouble covering the large government payroll without aid. MONEY TRAIL The United States has earmarked a total of $234 million in aid to the Palestinians for 2006 – none of it going directly to the Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority. The European Union and its member nations earmark about $615 million in yearly aid. UNITED STATES: $150 million goes to construction, training government officials and other projects, plus $84 million in humanitarian assistance paid through the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees. EUROPEAN COMMISSION: $148 million, including $21.6 million in direct aid to the caretaker Fatah-led Palestinian Authority. It gave $345 million in 2005. GERMANY: $76 million, plus $56.6 million to nongovernmental organizations and U.N. agencies. FRANCE: $73.9 million, including $30.8 million in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority, $6.2 million to the World Bank, $6.2 million to U.N. agencies. BRITAIN: $61.6 million, half of which goes to U.N. agencies. NETHERLANDS: $40.6 million ($6.2 million to the Palestinian government.) SWEDEN: $30.3 million to U.N. agencies, plus $35.7 million given though NGOs. ITALY: $27 million BELGIUM: $13 million. DENMARK: $4.1 million. FINLAND: $7.4 million – half to Palestinian Authority projects. GREECE: $6.8 million, though aid groups.
