first_imgThe game was heated for a brief moment, and Jorginho, who did not seem to be aware of being aware, went on too much in a protest to the referee and will miss the return at the Allianz, where his people arrive sentenced. And they will do it because the fury gave way to bewilderment and Lewandowski, who was not very interested in those stories, decided to yield a pass that he received to space so that Gnabry pushed the first goal of the tie to pleasure.The German arrived as a shot at this stretch of the season, and did not disappoint on his return to London, where he left crestfallen in 2015 after being rejected by Arsenal. Just a few minutes later, and in what was his sixth goal in this edition of the Champions League, the Teuton again got wet after a good assistance from the Polish striker, although this time he had to try a little harder and send it to the long stick Knight’sLampard tried to shake the attack point with the entry of Willian and Abraham and the exit of Giroud and Barkley, who made a very bad game, but Bayern would hit again, this time, through Lewandowski, who took a pass Davies to mark his goal. The highway that Reece James left on the right lane, where Azpilicueta could not shrink more water, will undoubtedly be one of the videos that the English coach must put to his team if he wants to stop a bleeding that has been coming for several months and that You can put the rest of the season at risk. From the draw for the round of 16, in London he whispered in fear, almost as if he were going to conjure the man in the bag: “Lewandowski is coming …”. And ‘Lewa’ came, put on his boots and, indeed, terrified London. It is what monsters like him have, that as much as you see them coming you know that they will eat you in the end. Huge match of the Polish, who took over Stamford Bridge, distributed two goal assists and scored his goal, which served to sentence a tie that can be bleeding. It even caused the expulsion of a Marcos Alonso who, desperate, attacked him in the back when he saw that he could no longer stop him. This Bayern has come to Europe to raze.Chelsea managed, however, to quench the fury of the Teutons during the first half, where Caballero, who is knowing how to seize the opportunity granted by Lampard to the detriment of Kepa, drew two very good hands from Lewandowski’s two shots.The blues They even responded with a play by Mount who was about to embocar in the goal line Giroud, who has returned to the title, but the Frenchman did not arrive and the Bundesliga leader responded with the most serious warning so far. Müller, who had already tried a shot with a rope that left shortly, headed a ball to the crossbar that shook the foundations of Stamford Bridge.Those of Flick dominated the possession, fundamentally thanks to a Thiago that was colossal at the helm of the center of the field, and also the occasions, but the party arrived at the rest without the Germans managed to open the can that Lampard had prepared. In the resumption, even, it seemed that the Londoners could get ahead with a play fruit of the heart and faith of Mount, who came to be planted hand in hand with Neuer, but the goal was easily removed with his foot and then was quick to the time to shrink spaces for Barkley, who turned off the lights.last_img read more

first_imgThe North West Area board of Basketball Ireland would like to invite you to attend a meeting in The Abbey Hotel, Donegal Town on Thursday 27th March 2014 at 8pm. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the possibility of setting up a Basketball Academy aimed at underage players in the North West. This is the only item on the agenda and the meeting should last no more than 2 hours.It will be an open forum where we can all bounce our ideas off each other with the overall aim to improve basketball in the North West both at a club and school level. “We have all travelled to various parts of Ireland for different competitions and we have seen that, while now and again we produce a team that can compete in a national competition, we don’t do it on a consistent basis.“We have to try to change this and an Academy would seem to be an ideal starting point for the development of underage basketball in our area.“An Academy involving players from all schools and clubs would surely further the development of basketball in the North West.“We would like as many coaches/clubs/schools to attend as possible with no limit on the number of representatives from clubs or schools.” All are invited on 27th March.BASKETBALL ACADEMY MOOTED AS CLUBS MEET TO DISCUSS PLAN was last modified: March 15th, 2014 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:Basketball Academydonegallast_img read more

first_imgA Nationwide special featuring some of Donegal’s most famous characters and sites is to feature on RTE this evening.The three items to feature on this evening’s porgramme on RTE 1 at 7pm features the story of Fr.James McDyer of Glencomcille, the cliffs at Sliabh League and also the story of Kilcar yarns.Viewers can hear the story of Fr McDyer – a remarkable man who many say was ahead of his time and who would love to have around today. He came to Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal in the early 1950s to a glen scourged by emigration and set about transforming the lives of its people – creating jobs and much more besides. Using footage from the RTÉ archives and some recently discovered film shot by the man himself, Eileen Magnier tells the story of Father James McDyer. The team also finds out about the beauty of what has been described as the jewel in the Crown of Co. Donegal, the highest cliffs in Europe on the Sliabh League Peninsula.The show also features the fascinating story of Donegal tweed. It’s renowned worldwide and used by some of the world’s top fashion designers and it came from a little village in south west Donegal. Call it Donegal Yarn or Donegal Tweed – it’s a unique yarn used for spinning and knitting and it’s made in Kilcar in one of the few traditional wool spinning mills left. Coming in as raw wool, it’s worked through to a finished multicoloured fleck yarn and despite challenging economic times – business is booming!EndsRTE’S NATIONWIDE TO FEATURE DONEGAL THIS EVENING was last modified: August 19th, 2011 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:donegalKilcar yarnsNationwideRTESliabh Leaguelast_img read more

first_imgATHLETICS: Lifford was the venue today for the first of the Primary Schools Cross Country Championships taking place across the county over the coming weeks.Thirteen schools from both sides of the border took part today, with over 300 children involved, some of whom were experiencing cross country running for the first time. Schools athletics brings so much happiness and enjoyment, where the focus at these young ages is on participation and having fun. However, the competitive nature of every child was very much evident today, whether it was battling for gold, or fighting for the all important team placings throughout the field.The event in Lifford today was also an important part of the process in the building of new relationships with local schools and communities which form part of the proposed new Lifford Strabane AC catchment area. The Lifford club would like to thank all the volunteers from the club who helped out with the marking of the course and with the event organisation today, to Robert Smyth for the generous use of his fields, to the Care of the Aged Committee for the kind use of the Social Centre, and to all the schools, teachers and parents for supporting the event.Under a new initiative for schools athletics, the Donegal Athletics Board will host its first County Primary Schools Finals which will be held in Lifford on the 15th October.

first_imgGoalkeeper Julio Cesar’s unfortunate own goal meant an entertaining first half at Loftus Road ended all-square.Junior Hoilett’s deflected effort gave QPR an early lead, but Everton levelled when Sylvain Distin’s header from Steven Pienaar’s right-wing free-kick hit the post before rebounding off Cesar and into the net.Having sloppily conceded early goals in their previous two matches, this time Rangers found themselves ahead after only two minutes.Following Cesar’s punch clear from a corner, Hoilett got the better of Phil Neville deep inside the Rangers half and galloped towards the Everton penalty area.After opting not to put Adel Taarabt through on goal, the Canadian benefited from a huge slice of luck when his shot struck Leighton Baines, completely wrong-footing Everton keeper Tim Howard.Slightly hampered by the non-availability of various players prior to the international break, Rangers manager Mark Hughes was able to ring the changes.Out went Alejandro Faurlin, Anton Ferdinand and Clint Hill, with Stephane Mbia partnering Ryan Nelsen at centre-back, Armand Traore starting at left-back, Samba Diakite returning to the midfield and Ji-sung Park reverting to his preferred right-wing position.Taarabt played from the left, with Hoilett supporting Bobby Zamora in the middle.And after Hoilett’s opener, Hughes’ side – bottom of the table and without a league win this season – appeared to grow in confidence.But they were pegged back by a mixture of bad luck and all-too familiar shoddy defending, with an unchallenged Distin able to meet Pienaar’s 32nd-minute delivery.Everton then took control, appealing in vain for penalty after Nikica Jelavic went down under a challenge from Mbia, and then going close to taking the lead when Baines’ corner was headed against the bar by Phil Jagielka.QPR (4-4-1-1): Cesar; Bosingwa, Mbia, Nelsen, Traore; Park, Diakite, Granero, Taarabt; Hoilett; Zamora.Subs: Green, Ferdinand, Cisse, Wright-Phillips, Mackie, Onuoha, Faurlin.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgMaine activists will fight rulingIn Maine, it is the risk of adverse health effects rather than fire that is motivating critics.Critics argue the radio waves emitted by the meters are a potential health risk. But last December, the state’s Public Utilities Commission found the evidence is unconvincing. The meter program, it said, “does not present a credible threat to the health and safety of [Central Maine Power] customers and, based on the record of this proceeding is, therefore, safe.”Now, the Maine Public Broadcasting Networks reports, opponents have filed an appeal with the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.Their attorney, Bruce McLaughlin, said his clients want the court to fine the PUC decision is contrary to law.The group, the Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, said in a press release announcing the appeal:“In every state and country where smart meters have been or may be installed, there is continued opposition from citizen groups concerned with 24/7 radiation emissions deemed by the World Health Organization to be a possible carcinogen, invasion of privacy for the electronic records the meters record, theft of personal data, infringement of several constitutional rights and compromising of personal and grid cybersecurity.” Authorities in Ontario have ordered the removal of 5,400 smart meters because of the possibility they could start fires.The Electrical Safety Authority announced Jan. 22 the removal of the Sensus 3.2 meters that are equipped with a remote disconnect feature, The Toronto Star’s website reported. The affected meters are a tiny percentage of the 4.8 million advanced electric meters that have been installed in the province.“This particular meter is in very limited use,” David Collie, the authority’s CEO, told the newspaper. There are some 50,000 Sensus meters in the province, but the safety concerns are only with the remote-disconnect models used at some seasonal properties.The authority began its investigation after eight unexplained minor fires in Saskatchewan last summer connected with a different Sensus model, the 3.3.Sensus, based in North Carolina, said it was disappointed with the decision, and said the meters have a “perfect record in Ontario,” according to the report.The installation of smart meters, which allow utilities to track electricity use and manage the grid more effectively than the old analog meters, has been become a political football in the province. Ontario’s auditor general last month criticized the $2 billion smart meter program for cost overruns and poor performance.In Saskatchewan, Greentech Media reports, Sensus meters also have been under fire. SaskPower last year decided to yank 105,000 of the meters. While Sensus meters later passed UL safety tests, the utility is still asking the company to spend $5 million for meter upgrades.Sensus meters also were suspected in nine fires in Nevada. Utility regulators there last year ordered an investigation.last_img read more

first_imgA senior faculty member of the leading Ahmedabad-based design school,National Institute of Design (NID) has been expelled following several complaints of sexual harassment against him by students. Krishnesh Mehta was allowed to resign and be relieved with immediate effect after he expressed regret and tendered an apology, the institute said in a release on Saturday.A committee set up by NID had found the charges of sexual harassment genuine, and recommended his termination as a faculty member. “Based on the enquiry report and findings, a show cause notice was issued to Krishnesh Mehta, and as it is a repeat offence, why his services should not be terminated. The reply given by him was not satisfactory nor was [he] showing any signs of remorse and therefore it was decided to terminate his services,” the Institute stated in a release on Saturday.“Being a senior faculty member, regretting his conduct and behaviour, and preferring to leave the services instead of being terminated, his request was considered and he was relieved from the services of NID with effect from the October 5th,” the release added.A group of students had complained about undesirable and out-of-syllabus references to sexuality and sexual relations and behaviour in Mr. Mehta’s classes. In the past, based on a complaint pertaining to his behavior amounting to sexual harassment, for which he tendered a written apology, he was awarded the punishment of the stoppage of one increment, and was also issued a strong warning that such conduct would be dealt with sternly in the future. “He is not being allowed to even enter the campus,” NID-Ahmedabad Director Pradhyumana Vyas said.last_img read more
