first_img10 From the Belgian Football Federation and from the player’s environment they transmit this newspaper great optimism about the agreement, which would be not only to continue hand in hand until the Euro Cup, but to continue together until the 2022 World Cup, which was the initial idea. Right now, though, the final talks have been postponed for at least four or six weeks, depending on how the health crisis evolves.Roberto Martínez is confined in the United Kingdom, where by the way he maintains permanent contact with the injured Hazard, and it will not be until he can move to Belgium when he faces the last phase of the negotiation. The image of the Spanish coach cannot be better in the Belgian Federation, which highlights his involvement and rigor not only as a coach, but also as a technical director. This second role plays a decisive role for the future, since Both parties have great interest and enthusiasm in the new infrastructure and structuring project for Belgian football Martinez is monitoring. Among the plans are developing the new batch of talent, in which there is a lot of confidence to succeed the current Golden Generation, or the process of transfer from the Brussels offices to Tubize, integrating all the departments in a remodeled Belgian Football Center.The controversy with the Belgian Federation is behindIn january the postures suffered a certain distance, with Sound statements in the media included. Thus the president of the Belgian Federation, Mehdy Bayat, who blames precisely the Press for what happened, and the coach’s agent smoothed out rough edges until he regains his good attunement. The representative, in fact, He has been discussing the details of the deal with Peter Bossaert, the agency’s CEO.However, There is a small chance that the renovation will not come to fruition. In recent months, important clubs knocked on Martinez’s door, especially since the Premier and Serie A, with some conversations at the trial level from Spain, where he has been linked to Madrid and Barça remain vigilant. Siepre discarded it Bob for their commitment to Belgium, But now, with the contractual scenario, an irrepressible proposal could change everything.center_img The postponement of Euro 2020 due to coronavirus it left in Belgium, on a sporting level, a bittersweet flavor. Of the joy to understand that his great star and captain, the madridista Hazard, he would arrive at the tournament in full condition in 2021, doubting the age of some of his other references, especially in defense. Plus, There was growing concern over the situation of Roberto Martínez, who ends his contract this June. A concern that, according to what AS has known, has the appearance of disappearing.last_img read more

first_imgTwo of the group of prominent Liberians who filed a writ of prohibition to the Supreme Court to halt the special senatorial elections, have now endorsed the High Court’s ruling for the elections to go ahead.The Supreme Court in its ruling last Saturday, lifted the stay order on the special election stating that it is not the High Court’s responsibility to make political decisions but to protect the Constitution of Liberia and the rights of the people.The two “eminent citizens”, former Information Minister Emmanuel Bowier and former Grand Kru Senator Blamo Nelson, sharing their impressions about the ruling yesterday, said their objective was to allow the rule of law to prevail instead of violence.Mr. Nelson told this newspaper, “We had an issue and took it to the court, but we are obliged to abide by the ruling of the Supreme Court, being the highest and final arbiter in a case.”He added that the Supreme Court’s ruling is important in enhancing democracy instead of allowing violence to occur.Their advocacy to suspend the election because of Ebola was not meant for their personal interest, said Mr. Nelson, but the interest of the Liberian people.One of the reasons put forward to suspend the election was the lack of a final list of voters which has not been provided by the National Elections Commission (NEC).Commenting on this matter following the ruling, Mr. Nelson said the people for whom he advocated are not concerned to ask what becomes of this cardinal electoral issue, leaving him short of words.He indicated that the pending election is not practical and holding it is not right, but he could not go against the court ruling as far as the rule of law is concerned.Former Information Minister Rev. Emmanuel Bowier, described the Supreme Court’s ruling as “reasonable.”Though their case was thrown out, what they stood for was addressed by the court and therefore they have no dissatisfaction to express against the ruling, said Rev. Bowier.He emphasized that they were concerned about the spread of Ebola, and the court in consonance with their plea cautioned NEC to put the necessary health regulations in place to avoid the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease.He said they did not oppose the holding of election, but were advocating for the right thing to be done, adding, “We wanted to teach the young people a lesson so they can know how to seek redress through the court instead of using violence.”Mr. Nathaniel Barnes, one of the petitioners, also told the Daily Observer that he abides by the decision of the Supreme Court because they are the highest arbiter of the law of the land.“However, I still feel very strongly about my motivation, which is the safety and wellbeing of the Liberian people.“While there are many constitutional and legal issues that were debated,” Mr. Barnes continued, “I chose a social road because it doesn’t make any sense to me to see our foreign partners expending hundreds of millions of their taxpayers’ hard earned money and putting their nationals on the frontline of the war against Ebola in Liberia, while we spend US$16 million on elections and violate the cardinal rule in the fight against Ebola, which is avoidance of public gatherings. “Be that as it may, God bless Liberia,” Mr. Barnes concluded. Meanwhile, Liberian economist and politician, Dr. Togba Nah-Tipoteh, has differed with the ruling and said the verdict rendered by the Supreme Court violates the people’s right to life.Although the court has ruled and he can do nothing about it, Dr. Tipoteh indicated that the right to life is a highest constitutional requirement because the people have the right to live.He argued that in all situations the voice of the people must prevail.  According to him, no one, the Supreme Court included, can say that this is not a judicial function.“In my opinion, it is unambiguously (unmistakably, definitely) judicial,” Dr. Tipoteh said.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgCentral Bank Executive Governor Dr. J. Mills Jones has donated US$1,500 along with buckets, Clorox and disinfectants to Ebola survivors in Small Ganta and Busie Town, Nimba County as a means of identifying with Ebola survivors.Dr. Jones’ donation to Ebola survivors in Small Ganta, Nimba County, was presented to the townsfolk last Friday by the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP), headed by Cultural Ambassador Juli Endee.Small Ganta is one of the badly hit areas in Nimba County, where over 50 persons died of the killer Ebola virus.Liberia’s Cultural Ambassador, Juli Endee, said Dr. Jones’ donation to Ebola survivors was due to his love for humanity and his determination to see the virus eradicated from Liberia.“When I visited my people in Small Ganta Town, I noticed the pains my people were going through, especially since  the community being the worst hit by Ebola, leaving several survivors,” she said.  I decided to look around for support and finally I got Dr. Mills Jones, who provided the money and other materials. That is why we came with our partner to tell you that we are with you.”Amb. Endee explained that the US$1000 was for Ebola survivors.  In addition, Dr. Jones also sent buckets, Clorox and other materials to empower them to continue the fight against the virus.     Upon receiving the cash and anti-Ebola materials on behalf of the survivors and people of Small Ganta, District #2,  Representative Larry Youngquoi thanked the Central Bank Governor and Amb. Endee for the kind gesture toward the people of Small Ganta.Rep. Youngquoi urged the City Mayor and town chief to use  the funds for a project that will benefit the survivors and people of that community.         At the same time, Nimba County Health Officer, Dr. Collins S. Bowah, described the donation as timely.He promised to join Governor Jones by providing more support to Ebola survivors, through his partners, as efforts to give hope to Ebola survivors in the county.He also stated that as per his discussion with partners, there are also plans to help these survivors with vocational training which will empower them in various fields now that they have been free of the virus.As for Busie Town, which is very near the Guinea border, the Central Bank Governor gave US$500 for the renovation of the town’s hand pumps, which had been in disrepair for the past year.  In addition, he also sent them materials for the anti-Ebola fight. Busie town, inhabited by roughly 1,300 people, is one of the towns in Nimba that most fortunately had not experienced an Ebola outbreak.  Its people plant sugar cane and manufacture ‘cane juice,’ a popular Liberian alcoholic beverage, as a means of survival.  The town is very near the Guinea Border.Busie Town Chief Philbert Nyebe and members of the community thanked Dr. Mills Jones for the support and promised to use what was given them for the purposes intended.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgHis latest accomplishment points to the future – a letter of intent he recently signed to play next year at UCLA. Hays, 17, has been the target of criticism his entire career for being too physical or too brash, but no one can question his work ethic, talent and dedication to a sport he loves. “Brett has played a lot in Europe and plays an aggressive, physical type of game that people out here aren’t used to,” Bonita coach John Ashby said. “His desire is something I will be able to point back to when teaching my younger players.” Hays probably would be playing football if it wasn’t for a neck injury at age 11 that prohibited him from following in his father’s footsteps. At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Hays would have been a huge asset for Bonita’s football team. Hays’ dad, Jack, 53, was a defensive end at Fresno State and is a retired Sheriff’s deputy. Brett Hays scored 370 goals over his four years with the Bearcats and was All-CIF three times and MVP of Division VI in 2005. Bonita moved up to Division III this past season and lost in the quarterfinals to Damien 6-4, but earned respect from many skeptics with its success in Division VI. LA VERNE – Like it or not, Brett Hays is a winner. The Bonita High School water polo standout finished his stellar career with three CIF-Southern Section Division VI championships and four Miramonte League titles. center_img Hays has represented the United States youth national team and development team and has played in Canada, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, and Mexico City. The Bearcats senior likes his chances to make the U.S. Olympic team in 2012 and intends to play professionally in Europe. Hays believes his experience in international play has played the biggest role in his success. He acknowledges he has his share of detractors, but to his credit, he’s shrugged off the negative energy and turned in one of the most dominant careers in the San Gabriel Valley in recent memory. “I am always looking for perfection in the water, and sometimes when I get frustrated I do things when I’m not thinking,” Hays said. “Sometimes when you get too intense, you don’t react the way you’d like.” Hays has unanimous respect among his peers for his incredible talent and the work he’s put into his craft. “Brett is definitely the best player I’ve ever played against in this area,” Damien standout Troy Carter said. Carter, who will continue his rivalry against his close friend next season when he plays at USC, said Hays’ size and speed makes him a unique player. Charter Oak’s Brad Beintema was the Miramonte League MVP, but he credited Hays for his improved level of play this season. “Playing against Brett made me want to work hard to try and reach his level. He played at a level above everyone else and I wanted to play like him,” Beintema said. “He is the most dominant player in the area.” Hays’ love of water polo has made it easier for the senior to surrender much of his social life because of his travels across the country and the world in tournaments representing the U.S. “I’d like to hang out more with my friends and go out and have fun, but water polo is my life and I am going to put all my energy into my training and my school work,” he said. Hays almost entirely was the focus of all Bearcats opponents. “In planning a game strategy against Bonita, I always had to figure out how to contain Brett,” Damien coach Andrew Gates said. “He is going to get his goals and can dominate a game, so I needed to come up with a defensive game plan to limit his touches.” Hays’ contributions at Bonita weren’t limited to water polo. The senior has seven school records for the swim team. “When people look back at my career, I hope they remember how hard I worked and how much I loved the game of water polo,” Hays said. “I want my teammates at Bonita to know if you work hard enough, you can achieve your goals.” Gates remembers Hays as “by far the most difficult player to stop that we had to play in the last two years from our area.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
