Atlético gets fed up with VAR

first_imgCerezo said at the end of the derby his disapproval when applying the VAR and after Atlético-Granada the indignation has been increasing. Nobody wants to raise their voice again very prominently, but the discomfort is evident. Atlético is very sensitive and understands that not all clubs are treated equally on the subject of arbitration and the VAR. Atlético won Granada 1-0 and took three points that are very important for the rojiblanco team in the fight for the Champions League positions. Simeone’s team won but no one was happy with the Soto Grado arbitration. Atlético did not finish satisfied with the arbitration work in the past derbAnd neither in the clash against the Granada team. The play that irritated the rojblancos most was the one starred by Soldier and Correa in the first half. Soldier stuck his elbow in Correa’s face and the referee saw nothing in that action. But the rojiblanco discomfort has to do with the fact that the action was not reviewed by the VAR, where Medié Jiménez was. Nobody notified the referee of the lack of the Granada striker, which would have been a penalty and the second yellow card for the Granada player. last_img read more

“Audience at Liverpool-Atleti? It was correct at the time”

first_imgThe laps around Liverpool-Atlético continue. The last from the same place: the Government of the United Kingdom. But if yesterday Angela McLean, Deputy Scientific Adviser to the Defense Ministry of the British Government, criticized again for the umpteenth time the displacement of 3,000 rojiblancos fans from Madrid to Anfield to live the match of the second round of the Champions League live (the capacity of the stadium is for 54,000 spectators), the latest statements are the opposite. They come out in defense of just that. That there was an audience in the stands of that match on March 11. “It was the right decision at the time based on the scientific advice that was provided“defended the Chancellor of the Treasury of the Government of Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak, in the daily control session. “At each stage of this crisis, we have been guided by scientific advice and made the right decision at the right time,” he added. “It is important that this is what we do. There is often a bad time to implement certain measures, thinking about sustainability and everything else.. In all parts of this problem, we have been guided by science, guided to make the right decisions at the right time, and I defend that, ”he justified. Throw in favor of the partyAnd he also had a reply for McLean, whose statements (“It will be interesting to see the relationship between the spread of the virus and Liverpool-Atlético“) are in line with those that the Mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, described as” an error “in having allowed this massive displacement from Madrid.” The question that has been asked must be placed in the context of general policy in that moment, ”slipped Sunak. “When normal life was on, going to a soccer game was not a particularly large additional risk“He sentenced. Then, March 11 did not sound like it does now: recklessly.last_img read more

Chamber of Commerce Election Set for August 6th

first_imgLifting the court’s stay order, Judge Scheaplor Dunbar said Ananaba’s accusation was cleverly calculated to mislead the court.Days after the Civil Law Court ‘B’ at the Temple of Justice authorized the Elections Committee (EC) of the Liberia Chamber of Commerce (LCC) to go ahead with preparations for the holding of the organization’s electoral activities, the electoral body has now set August 6 as the new date for the exercise.On July 2 this year, the court restrained the EC and its chair from organizing the polls pending hearing of the case of constitutional violation brought by Charles Ananaba, the outgoing president and chief executive officer of Omega Insurance Company.In that complaint, Ananaba claimed that without conveying a special meeting to establish an adequate quorum and subsequently, within total disregard of the laws of the LCC, the electoral body was illegally proceeding with the conduct of the electoral activities.Mr. Ananaba through his lead lawyer, Cllr. Molley Gray, prayed the court to issue an order staying all electoral activities, declare the entire process void, and further declare the rights of petitioners (Ananaba) consistent with the controlling laws of the LCC and grant him relief.Lifting the court’s stay order, Judge Scheaplor Dunbar said Ananaba’s accusation was cleverly calculated to mislead the court.“The stay order is hereby lifted with immediate effect, and the EC ordered to proceed with their elections activities.” Dunbar declared.Giving reasons, the civil law court judge explained that Ananaba failed to prove any documentary evidences linking EC to the violation of the constitution of the LCC by holding the elections activities.Dunbar also said the July 2 stay order was in the form of an injunction relief, which the court used as precondition to temporarily grant Ananaba’s request.Dunbar explained that Mr. Ananaba should have posted an injunction bond to indemnify that he sustained injury or losses as a result of the stay order.“Not having done so,” Judge Dunbar stressed that, “Ananaba was not therefore entitled to the stay order.”He clarified that the July 2 stay order was inadvertently issued by the court, “hence, the proper thing to do was to lift it, and permit the EC to proceed with their elections.”Before lifting the order, LCC’s lead lawyer, Cllr. G. Moses Paegar, argued that Ananaba’s petition that resulted to the stay order should be ignored and dismissed as a matter of law on grounds that the court lacks jurisdiction to handle the case.Meanwhile, LCC’s Executive Council said all members, who are in good financial standing, are encouraged to seek office or nominate someone for the presidency, auditor, Arbitration Committee (three members) and Executive Council (11 members).The LCC further said only members who have paid their annual membership dues with a zero balance shall be eligible to nominate, vote, and contest elections. “Members interested in seeking office or would like to nominate someone, please submit a letter to the Secretariat (secretarygeneral@liberiachamber.org) no later than 12PM Monday, August 6, 2018,” the release said.ProxiesProxies who signed for the previous scheduled elections will be honored, the Chamber says.

Special Olympians take the plunge

first_imgSome participants actually jumped in before the official plunge, when the wave machine came on and animated the cool blue pool. A few minutes later, they went in again for a swim they paid at least $50 each to participate in. “We told them that they would have to donate twice for jumping in twice,” Clark joked. Hurricane Harbor opened for the season Saturday, after the Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley was done with its event. Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley serves 530 developmentally disabled athletes. Competing year-round as the Sharks, they play sports that include hockey, basketball and softball. Pat Coskran, 57, is a teacher whose son, Sean, 21, has played in the Special Olympics for more than seven years. SANTA CLARITA – The sun’s bright rays heralded the coming of summer, but a brisk wind blew at Hurricane Harbor on Saturday as swimmers plunged into frigid waters for a cause. Six Flags California’s Hurricane Harbor hosted the second installment of “Freezin’ for a Reason!” – a fundraiser for Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley. The group organized the first polar plunge in March at Castaic Lake. Saturday’s event raised more than $15,000 and together, the two events raised $60,000, said Chris Clark, director of the organization. On Saturday, about 40 developmentally disabled athletes and their supporters braved 62-degree water at Hurricane Harbor. Looking at his son sitting on a deck chair, smiling broadly and chatting with friends, Coskran credited the program for giving Sean more confidence and social skills. “Five or six years ago, that wouldn’t have been Sean,” Coskran said. “Sean would have been alone, sitting at a table.” Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley will hold a competition May 19 at Newhall Park. Volunteers are needed to help run the games, Clark said.
