LaLiga says that Real Madrid voted in favor of the protocol

first_imgLaLiga maintains that Real Madrid voted in favor of the protocol of restarting training approved by the CSD Working Group “after participating for a month in the meetings of the Executive Committee and in the deliberations” about the plan to restart training and competition, sources of all solvency from the employers told this newspaper. The LaLiga Executive Committee is made up of six First-tier clubs: Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Betis, Levante, Valencia and Villarreal. According to the information gathered by this newspaper, none of them voted against the proposal, although throughout the process, as is logical, they stated their position and made their contributions. Madrid was not the most active in this regard, but Barcelona. In addition to the First-tier clubs, the LaLiga Executive Committee also includes six other Second Division: Deportivo, Cádiz, Las Palmas, Alcorcón, Lugo and Almería. The working group is also made up of the CEO of Atlético, Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, and himself Javier Tebas, President of LaLiga.The Real Madrid plans to return to the activity today. It will be the moment when the coach, Zidane, will organize with the club and with the doctors the return of the players to training. You have to decide the deadlines, but in the Club they are clear that the first thing is the health of the players and other employees of the entity.last_img read more

Linfield topples top seed

You’re all set! “You can’t pick a day like this to shoot as poorly as we did,” Ravasady said. “They mixed up their defenses well, and we didn’t do a good job of adjusting. We got a lot of good looks but the ball just didn’t go in the basket, and they hit some really timely shots. “They did everything they needed to do to beat us. They took the top seed out by playing as perfect as you can.” Linfield Christian’s Matt Combs scored 23 points, but the difference-maker was 6-foot-6, 230-pound center Joshua Sandberg, who finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocked shots. “Their big man completely changed what we do offensively,” Ravasady said. “He took our tall and thin guys out of the game by banging them around and frustrating them. “Give them a lot of credit.” • Slideshow: 02/23: Linfield vs. Maranatha TEMPLE CITY – It was painful to watch, and just as difficult to describe, but Maranatha High School boys basketball coach Doug Ravasady mustered a few thoughts after visiting Linfield Christian of Temecula upset the top-ranked Minutemen 62-44 in the CIF-Southern Section Division V-AA semifinals at Temple City High on Friday. center_img It was so bad that the Minutemen trailed 19-7 at the half after converting only 3 of 30 shots, thanks to several different defensive looks the Lions threw at them and shots that continually rattled off the rim.

Only as a team can Bayern stop Ronaldo – Boateng

first_img0Shares0000Philipp Lahm, Jerome Boateng and all the Bayern Munich defenders could not stop Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2017 Champions League quarterfinals © AFP/File / GERARD JULIENBERLIN, Germany, Apr 23 – Jerome Boateng says only a defensive team effort can prevent Cristiano Ronaldo adding to his mind-blowing tally of nine goals in six games against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.Bayern host Real in a blockbuster Champions League semi-final, first-leg, at the Allianz Arena with Ronaldo in goal-scoring form. The Portugal superstar has scored 15 goals in the Champions League this season, hitting the net in each of Real’s ten games in Europe.“We can only stop Cristiano Ronaldo as a team,” Bayern centre-back Boateng told German magazine Kicker.“In front of goal, he’s like a machine.“You can’t shut him out completely, he always gets his chances in a game, because of the lines he runs and his excellent timing.“Real base their game around him and it’s important we give him as little room as possible.”Ronaldo was at his lethal best when Real beat Bayern 6-3 on aggregate in last season’s quarter-finals — scoring five of their goals.He hit two second-half goals as Real came from behind to win 2-1 in Munich, then bagged a hat-trick in a 4-2 extra-time win in Madrid.That came after he scored twice in Munich in the 2014 semi-final 4-0 rout of Bayern and hit two more against the Bavarians in the 2012 semis.“There is a no more complete striker than Ronaldo. Left foot, right foot, header – he is in perfect control of everything he does,” said Boateng.In his six Champions League knock-out games for Bayern against Ronaldo’s Real, Boateng has lost five of them.His only success was a 2-1 win in Munich in the 2012 semi-finals when Bayern later progressed by winning a penalty shoot-out in Madrid after losing 2-1 in the second-leg.“I went through only once against him with Bayern, but twice we have gone out,” said Boateng.“He also has the best team-mates at Real.“Shutting him out is only 50 percent of it, the other players are simply too good for that at this level.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Pair cleared in 35 deaths in Katrina

first_img“I’m very gratified that the two-year ordeal they’ve been through is finally over,” defense attorney John Reed said. The victims’ family and friends – all wearing black, some with buttons with a picture of the person who died at St. Rita’s – sat stoically. None cried. Yolanda Hubert’s 72-year-old mother, Zerelda Delatte, died when the home flooded; her aunt, Gilda Raklen, 90, survived. Hubert said she traveled from Texas to attend the trial. “The jury may not have found them guilty, but our savior says they are. When they face our maker, they’ll have to answer then,” she said. “They still have never said they were sorry. They haven’t said `I’m sorry I let your mother drown like a rat.’ They’re guilty as hell.” The prosecution maintained that the Manganos should have heeded warnings and evacuated before the massive storm roared ashore. Failing to do so led directly to the patients’ death and suffering, prosecutor Paul Knight had argued. The defense argued that the Manganos had safely sheltered in their brick facility for 20 years, and that if the levees had not broken, the home would have been safe. The trial lasted three weeks. The prosecution called 40 witnesses, including Gov. Kathleen Blanco, who testified that she left the decision on mandatory evacuations to local officials. St. Bernard Parish never called a mandatory evacuation. The defense featured five people and took just three days. Neither defendant testified. The defense was prohibited from using testimony or documents showing that the majority of nursing homes in the path of the storm – 36 of 57 – did not evacuate, or that there were deaths at other homes, including 22 at a New Orleans nursing home. The prosecution, however, did show that three other nursing homes in St. Bernard evacuated. More than 30 lawsuits have been filed against the Manganos by patients injured at the nursing home and the families of people who died there. The couple were the only people in Louisiana to face criminal charges stemming directly from Hurricane Katrina, and jurors said that played a key role in their decision. “We talked about that,” said juror Kim Maxwell, 46. “There were a lot of mistakes made, and it should have been a lot of people answering for it. So why just these two people?” Said juror Michael Cavalier, 39: “The state was responsible for the safety of nursing home residents. They didn’t do what they should have. They didn’t make the decisions they should have. So when the Manganos made their decision, why should they try to crucify them for it? That isn’t right.” Dane Ciolino, a professor at Loyola University’s College of Law in New Orleans, said the verdict was not surprising, “given the state was trying to characterize as gross negligence something that tens of thousands of others in south Louisiana did.” The only other criminal charges connected to Katrina deaths are against six former or current New Orleans police officers who face murder or attempted murder counts from a shooting after the storm. But the case is not tied to flooding or a direct effect of Katrina. At one time, Attorney General Charles Foti’s office said investigations into scores of patient deaths at nursing homes and hospitals during and after Katrina were likely to lead to more arrests. Six hospitals and 13 nursing homes in Louisiana were investigated. At least 140 patients died in the storm and its aftermath.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! COURTS: Flooding killed 35 patients when nursing home’s owners didn’t evacuate it. By Mary Foster THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. – The owners of a nursing home where 35 patients died after Hurricane Katrina were acquitted Friday of negligent homicide and cruelty charges for not evacuating the facility as the storm approached. The jury took about four hours to acquit Sal and Mabel Mangano, the husband-and-wife owners of St. Rita’s Nursing Home in St. Bernard Parish, just outside of New Orleans. “I can’t tell you how good this feels, how good those people are,” Mabel Mangano said outside the courthouse in St. Francisville, the town about 110 miles northwest of New Orleans where the trial was moved. “This has been a very rough road.” They had faced 35 counts of negligent homicide and 24 counts of cruelty to the elderly or infirm after the patients drowned – some in their beds – when the monster hurricane swept through the area in 2005. Judge Jerome Winsberg asked the defendants to stand when the verdicts were read. When Mabel Mangano did so, she buried her face in her husband’s shoulder. Afterward, the Manganos sat back down and hugged each other. Their daughter, Tammy White, sobbed quietly. last_img
