Marc Roca changes agent for future

first_imgThey were like a bottle of cava when uncorked Marc Roca’s options of leaving Espanyol to join Bayern Munich, in the summer of 2019. The interest of the Bavarian entity, which arose in the middle of the parakeets’ stay in Navata, was robust. But firmer still was the position of the parrot club to ask for the full amount of its clause, of 40 million euros. And so on, until it dissipated. Now the midfielder surprises by changing his representative. Roca leaves JM10 Sport, the firm created by the father of Manchester United footballer Juan Mata, by Promoesport, a more international spectrum agency. The jump, which occurred late last week, it does not have to obey any will to leave Espanyol, where it is indisputable since he has been a starter in the 24 LaLiga games in which he has been available. Further, has a contract in force until 2022, so that so much could think in the future key in an exit that enriches the coffers of the parakeet club like in a renovation. Meanwhile, he recovers at home from the Achilles tendon injury that prevented him from playing against Atlético de Madrid and Osasuna. Who He also recently changed agent, and in this case, yes, to try to secure his continuity in Espanyol because his contract ends this June, it is Dídac Vilà. Just three weeks ago, when conversations for its renewal had already started, the left-handed winger left Global Sports Soccer to stop at Sports & Management.last_img read more

Green Conversations: Providing Guyanese with information to create sustainability

first_img…agro-processing can have negative implicationsAnother installment of the Green Conversations discussion unfolded on Thursday evening at the Pegasus Hotel, featuring key talks on sustainability in Guyana and how it can be achieved through various economic sectors.The event, which was organised via collaborations with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the University of Guyana (UG) and the United Nations (UN), saw input from persons within these agencies.While delivering his feature address, senior economist Ralph Lucan of the United States Environmental Protection Agency shared some insight into Guyana’s economic sector.He noted that Guyana’s economy needs to delink its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from resources use and pollution. “Decoupling basically means delinkingRalph Lucanmanufacturing activities from resource use from pollution.”Relative decoupling defines a situation when the GDP is rapidly increasing than the resource use. On the other hand, absolute decoupling states that while there must be increases in the GDP, the resource use must remain constant.Lucan focused his presentation on activities that can result in relative decoupling in Guyana, while acknowledging that there has been great consideration of the agro-processing sector. He outlined the consequences, asserting that a value chain analysis will better understand if the positives outweigh the negatives.“In the processing, there could be negative environmental implications in terms of increased pesticide, increased fertilisers. There could be inefficiencies in the production processes. There is a certain amount of waste in various sectors,” said Lucan, while highlighting the negative aspects.However, he went on to list the positives, stating, “There can be positive in terms of increased profits, job generation. Those are positive so I think a value chain analysis would complement what is going on already in here, looking at one or two sectors as an example of both the positive and negative.”The economist insisted that the availability of data is a necessity in the manufacturing sector for areas such as what is the export and import rate and moreover, the net gain among issues.The Conversations are a series of talks held throughout Guyana with its main focus on enlightening citizens on green economic development and how it can be achieved through their input. They can also get information on some of the issues that are emerging from Guyana’s Green State Development Strategy.The document is before Cabinet and is a development plan, expected to last some 20 years. Next year is expected to be the implementation stage of this two-decade framework to set the economy for sustainable innovations.last_img read more

It was explained that they have been living on the land for a few months now but the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) had reached out to them, informing them that they will have to move. The residents said after explaining that they had nowhere to go, they were asked to file land applications and if the area is not allocated to be regularised, then they will get land elsewhere.As such, they were shocked when the armed men entered the area on Friday and started to demolish the buildings. During the process, several pieces of equipment and tools were taken, while others were tossed onto the street.A section of one of the dwellings that were torn apartSpeaking with this publication, one of the residents, Bibi Aleena Dhoray, explained that “two come in here with a sledgehammer and a crowbar and they start break from the back…Then they come here and the started breaking the bathroom, the kitchen sink, the shed…I had to beg them not to break the place because we have nowhere to go.”The woman stated that her child was almost injured by a piece of wood that fell during the demolition exercise.

He was still counting his losses in distress.“We hustling for somewhere to live. They didn’t send no notice or nothing.

first_imgFrankfurt, who are challenging for a top four spot in the Bundesliga and held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at home last week, were stunned in a bizarre first half at the BayArena where all seven goals were scored.“We knew Frankfurt had an intense Europa League game behind them, so we wanted to play with energy from the beginning,” Leverkusen striker Kevin Volland told Sky.Kai Havertz opened the scoring for Leverkusen after just two minutes, and Julian Brandt added another before Jonathan Tah deflected in a Filip Kostic shot to briefly allow Frankfurt back into the game.A brace from Lucas Alario, a Charles Aranguiz strike and a Martin Hinteregger own goal put Leverkusen 6-1 up by the 36th minute and completed a Bundesliga record of seven goals in the first half.Frankfurt remain in fourth but are now level on points with Leverkusen, and only three points ahead of seventh-place Hoffenheim.“I am not going to kick my team when they are down, we need to get the boys back on track,” said Huetter.Sunday’s horror show also damaged what had been a healthy goal difference advantage over their rivals in the race for Europe.– Schalke safe –Elsewhere, Schalke secured their Bundesliga survival with a 0-0 draw at home to Augsburg.“It’s a shame for the fans that we weren’t able to win today, but staying up was the main thing,” said interim coach Huub Stevens.Stevens, who had twice managed the club before and led them to UEFA Cup glory in 1997, stepped in and took the reins from Domenico Tedesco in March with Schalke just four points clear of the bottom three.Sunday’s draw put them seven points clear of Stuttgart, who are in the relegation play-off place, sealing safety with two games to spare.Stevens refused to answer questions about former Huddersfield coach David Wagner, who played under him at Schalke in the 1990s and is rumoured to be next in line for the head coach job.“As a member of the Schalke board, I am unable to comment,” he said.Freiburg also avoided the drop as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Fortuna Duesseldorf.Vincenzo Grifo gave the hosts an early lead from the penalty spot, before Dawid Kownacki smashed in the equaliser for Duesseldorf on the half-hour mark.Freiburg’s Janik Haberer was sent off in the second half, but they held on to secure the point and another year in the top flight.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eintracht Frankfurt suffered a humiliating 6-1 defeat in Leverkusen on Sunday © AFP / INA FASSBENDERBERLIN, Germany, May 5 – Eintracht Frankfurt coach Adi Huetter said that Sunday was one of the worst days of his career as his side were thrashed 6-1 by Bayer Leverkusen, just days before they travel to Chelsea for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie.“Today is a very dark day, one of my worst as a coach,” Huetter told Sky.last_img read more

THE DONEGAL GAA TEAM DO THE FULL MONTY – ALMOST!

first_imgThere were a lot of missed heartbeats and swooning at the Mount Errigal Hotel last night.  No – Jedward weren’t back in town. But the Donegal GAA team were and certainly got into the swing of things for a very good cause.  The team answered the call of local doctor Charlie McManus from Letterkenny General Hospital. Charlie organised a fashion show and concert with a difference in aid of the Neo Natal Unit in Altnagelvin, the maternity ward in Letterkenny General and the Donegal Football Team Training Fund. Charlie just happens to be the Donegal Team doctor so it was very difficult for any of the lads to say ‘no.’ A great night was had by all and needless to say Michael Murphy or Karl Lacey will NOT be signed up by any modeling agency any time soon (and they were the good ones!)   THE DONEGAL GAA TEAM DO THE FULL MONTY – ALMOST! was last modified: June 5th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal GAA teaDr Charlie McManusfashion showlast_img read more
