French pivot Bakayoko returns to Sevilla’s radar

first_imgThe pivot has played this season 23 games in which he has scored a goal and given two assists. Among the aspirants to take over the midfielder would also be a giant like Paris Saint-Germain, who seeks to reinforce that position and who has also focused on Ndidi, of Leicester, and mattress Thomas Partey. Bakayoko has militated this campaign in Monaco by Robert Moreno, together with ex-Sevilla players Ben Yedder and Jovetic, and he has done it on loan from Chelsea, the club that has his pass in property and that only three years ago paid the Monegasques precisely 40 million euros for his pass. He has a contract until 2022 at Stamford Bridge, but an exit will be sought. Tiemoué Bakayoko returns to Sevilla’s plans. The 25-year-old midfielder returns to the nerve radar As published this Saturday by France Footbal. According to the prestigious French media, Monchi has reactivated his interest in this power pivot and a long journey, international 24 times with the Bleus. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of May 2, 2020 Bakayoko was already linked to Sevilla last summer and It was also an aspiration of those of Nervión two years ago, with Joaquín Caparrós at the forefront of the soccer direction.

Monaco has not exercised the purchase option of 42 million for the player and Bakayoko returns to the market, although in theory in much more advantageous conditionslast_img read more

United heartbreaker!

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP): In one of the most entertaining matches of the English Premier League, Manchester United squandered a two-goal lead, went back in front through an exquisite 79th-minute shot from Wayne Rooney and then conceded a 90th-minute goal to draw at Newcastle 3-3 yesterday. “It feels like a defeat,” said Louis Van Gaal, whose side slipped to sixth. “We have given it away.” A positive for United was the performance of Rooney, who scored twice, set up the other goal by Jesse Lingard, and put in an impressive all-round performance. Goals by Georginio Wijnal-dum and Aleksandar Mitrovic, also from a penalty, brought Newcastle level from 0-2 down. With seconds left of regulation time, United failed to clear, and Paul Dummett advanced from left back to fire in a fierce shot from the edge of the area that deflected into the top corner. “It is the best feeling in the world,” the Newcastle-born Dummett said. Last-place Aston Villa collected their first win since the opening day, beating Crystal Palace 1-0 courtesy of a goalkeeping error by Wayne Hennessey. Also, West Ham came from behind to beat Bournemouth 3-1, with Enner Valencia scoring twice, and fit-again playmaker Dimitri Payet scoring the other goal for the visitors. West Ham moved into fifth place, above Man United.last_img read more

Ellington finally gets his All-Star 3-point contest call

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson And it got Ellington to All-Star weekend.Ellington is one of the eight players picked to compete in the 3-point contest on All-Star Saturday Night, set for Feb. 18 in Los Angeles. Ellington has already set a career-high with 153 3-pointers this season, with nearly half the season still to play.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“I wouldn’t have been mad or upset if I didn’t get the call,” Ellington said. “But it felt great to get it, for sure. I’ve put a lot of work in and it’s always been one of my individual goals.”Here’s how important Ellington’s shooting from long range has been for Miami: The Heat are 0-7 when he doesn’t make a 3-pointer, and 29-15 when he makes one or more. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has given Ellington the ultimate green light — in his parts of two seasons with Miami, 77 percent of Ellington’s field-goal attempts have come from beyond the arc. OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year He has become a true 3-point specialist, one who arrives early on practice days and stays late and has blown the Heat away with his work ethic.“He’s a supremely conditioned athlete in the National Basketball Association,” Spoelstra said. “He’s the top tier. … Wayne plays his games now, catch-and-shoot style, in the red zone all game long. That’s just a testament to the work he’s put into his body.”Ellington has become one of Miami’s most important players.That means the Heat will have some things to decide this summer.Ellington is a journeyman who doesn’t want to be on more journeys. He’s been traded four times and joined four teams as a free agent, moving to a new NBA city on almost an annual basis. And he’ll be a free agent again in July — but has made no secret of the fact that, if he got a vote, would prefer to stay in Miami for the long haul. He’s getting married this summer, he and his fiancée recently had their first child, and Miami feels like home.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles03:30PH’s Rogen Ladon boxing flyweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View comments LATEST STORIES Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Abbie Parr/Getty Images/AFPMIAMI — Wayne Ellington’s primary role with the Miami Heat is clear: He’s supposed to attempt a 3-pointer whenever possible.That’s a winning formula for the Heat.ADVERTISEMENT “I think everybody knows that,” Ellington said. “I don’t hide it. I come in every day and I feel like I show it. This is where I want to be at the end of the day. Since I came to Miami, life’s been amazing for me. I’ve got my son, I’ve got my fiancee and my basketball life has done a complete 180. I feel so grateful just for the opportunity, and I’m so appreciative.”The uncertainty about his future hasn’t seemed to bother him.Ellington is averaging career-highs in points (11.2) and minutes (26.2) per game. And put simply, when he’s involved, the Heat win. In the 24 games where Ellington has scored more than 10 points, the Heat are 18-6.“Every year’s a contract year for me, pretty much,” Ellington said. “So I’ve learned to just play basketball. You can’t think about down the road or what’s going to happen next. You’ve just got to think about what’s going on right now. That’s really what I’ve been trying to do throughout my career. I’ve been on a lot of one-year deals and when you have to play like that, you kind of get accustomed to it.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Blatter hints at new evidence to challenge 6-year FIFA ban Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases MOST READlast_img read more

Massive Malaria outbreak in Region 7 – PHM

first_img… caused by illegal Venezuelan miningBy Jeanna PearsonChoked by their massive economic crisis, many Venezuelan workers are flocking to Cuidad in Region 7 (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) to illegally mine for gold and their heavy presence is contributing to the outbreak of Malaria.Hundreds of Guyanese and Venezuelans are falling sick with malaria in a village called Cuidad, near the Venezuelan border. And according to Public Health Minister Dr George Norton, while they do not know the exact figures, the numbers are rising.Reports of the outbreak have even reached the international media, with the New York Times saying that there are no medications in the Region to help all the sick people. According to the New York Times: “There were no lights because the government had cut power to save electricity. There were no medicines because the Health Ministry had not delivered any. Health workers administered blood tests with their bare hands because they were out of gloves.”Venezuela was the first country in the world that was certified by the World Health Organization for the eradication of malaria, however, the economic crisis has turned the tables around. Because of poor and insanitary living conditions, many Venezuelans were contracting malaria in Venezuela and inadvertently spreading it in Guyana by illegally mining in Region 7.Norton stated that the outbreak has hit two Amerindian Carib Settlements in Region Seven. “The Venezuelans are coming in and are carrying out large-scale mining in that region,” he said. He highlighted that a medical team, comprising of himself, the Vector Control Unit, and the Regional Health Officers will be deployed to the Region.“We plan on addressing the issue and making certain that there are medication on the ground and medical personnel is there,” he added.When questioned on how the ministry found out about the outbreak, Norton indicated that it was the news story in the New York Times. He stated that the community is a scattered Carib village and communication is difficult because they are isolated: “We promise to rectify the situation as fast as possible.”At present, reported cases of malaria in Guyana are somewhere near 8000. Reported cases are constantly fluctuating but cases of underreporting may seem to be higher, with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) reporting that there were nearly 45 per cent underreported cases in 2013 and 2014, nationally.PAHO had stated in a report which compiled 50 years of health in Guyana, that the country’s tropical climate, high rainfall, and marshy conditions cause malaria to consistently pose a threat to the population. The report indicated that from the thousands of reported cases at the beginning of the National Malaria Eradication Programme in 1959, only 72 cases were reported in 1974.In 1991, there were 41,000 cases reported; the numbers increased to a little more than 84,000 in 1995. Thereafter, annual cases were consistently around 30,000 up to 2004. But suddenly there was a drop between 2007 and 2009, where reported cases were at their lowest.There have been increases annually afterward.Panning increases malaria.Malaria transmission has always been tied to movement of persons from the coast travelling to the hinterland regions to engage in economic activity associated with the extractive industries of gold, diamond and lumber.PAHO had indicated that whenever there is an increase in the price of gold on the world market, there is a concomitant increase in the number of malaria cases, as a greater number of Coastlanders travel to the malaria endemic regions for the purpose of mining, thereby a greater number of the population is exposed to malaria.last_img read more

Tune into all the live action on 100.1 Moose FM and make sure to tune into the pre-game show 15 minutes prior to puck drop. Playing from behind seems to be a challenge the Fort St. John Flyers don’t mind taking on.Despite finding themselves down 3-1, the Flyers showed great resilience, scoring five consecutive goals for a 6-3 game three victory and out-shooting the Generals 28-25.- Advertisement -Much like the first two games, Fort St. John found themselves short handed quickly after the opening face off. Flyers Captain Dave Alexander was assessed a penalty only seven seconds into the game, thanks to a high sticking infraction. Unfortunately for the captain, the penalty would be costly, as the Generals would score on the power play, giving Bentley a quick 1-0 lead.Just as the Generals did, Fort St. John scored their first goal of game three on the power play, 14:33 into the first, thanks to defensemen Kip Noble. Although, the period would not end in a draw, as shortly after the Flyers evened up the score, Bentley re-took the lead with only 3:50 left in the opening frame.The second period started off poorly for Fort St. John, as the Generals kept their early scoring streak alive, scoring only 26 seconds into the second. The quick goal gave the Generals a 3-1 lead.Midway through the second, Tyrell Mason and Chris Stevens found themselves on a two-on-none with the man advantage, thanks to a poor line change by Bentley. Mason, the puck carrier, needed no help from his teammate, as he pulled the puck to the backhand to score, cutting the Generals lead to one goal. The goal was the second power play goal for the Flyers in game three.Advertisement The Flyers kept the pressure coming, which would eventually pay off. After a hard working shift by Fast, Shipton and Horst, Jeff Shipton would bury the puck passed Galenza on the backhand, tying the game at threes, 13:08 into the second.The Flyers kept their foot on the offensive gas pedal and would be rewarded for their hard work. Todd Alexander scored with 4:36 left in the second period, giving the Flyers the 4-3 lead, their first lead of the game, as well as in the 2011 McKenzie Cup.Donny Lloyd would add some insurance, scoring five minutes into the third period, giving the Flyers a 5-3 lead. Lloyd’s goal would be the third goal scored by the Flyers defense in the game.The goals kept coming for Fort St. John, as Mike Stutzel would score with 8:17 remaining in the third. Stutzel took a Chris Stevens pass off his skate to his stick, snapping one past Galenza for a 6-3 Flyers lead. The goal was the Flyers fifth consecutively scored goal in the game.Advertisementlast_img read more

Sharpton roots on Thurmond land

first_imgNEW YORK – The Rev. Al Sharpton met Sen. Strom Thurmond only once – in 1991, while Sharpton was on a visit to Washington, D.C. The encounter was awkward because of the late South Carolina senator’s background as a prominent defender of segregation. “I was not happy to meet him,” Sharpton said of the senator who died in 2003. Their paths intersected again last week when Sharpton learned he is a descendant of a slave owned by Thurmond’s relatives. He was stunned by the information from the New York Daily News, which had obtained it from genealogists who tracked Sharpton’s roots and unearthed the data. “It was probably the most shocking thing in my life,” Sharpton said at a news conference Sunday, the day the tabloid revealed the story. His children have acknowledged that he fathered a biracial daughter, Essie Mae Washington-Williams, whose mother was a housekeeper in the home of Thurmond’s parents. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The professional genealogists, who work for, found that Sharpton’s great-grandfather Coleman Sharpton was a slave owned by Julia Thurmond, whose grandfather was Strom Thurmond’s great-great-grandfather. Coleman Sharpton was later freed. “Based on the paper trail, it seems pretty evident that the connection is there,” said Mike Ward, a genealogist with The revelations surfaced after the Web site contacted a Daily News reporter who agreed to have his own family tree done. The intrigued reporter then asked Sharpton if he wanted to participate. Sharpton said he told the paper, “Go for it.” The genealogists, who were not paid by the newspaper, uncovered the ancestral ties using a variety of documents that included census, marriage and death records. Strom Thurmond was once considered an icon of racial segregation. During his 1948 bid for president he promised to preserve segregation, and in 1957 he filibustered for more than 24 hours against a civil-rights bill. But Thurmond was seen as softening his stance later in his long life. He died in June of 2003 at the age of 100. One of the longest-serving senators in history, he was originally a Democrat but became a Republican in 1964. last_img read more

first_imgA team of volunteer divers from Wicklow will today join the search for missing Lifford man David Colhoun.The search for the tragic 22 year old has now entered its second week since he went missing in the early hours of Sunday week last.His distraught family including dad Joseph, three brothers and one sister have been waiting at the banks of the Rivers Finn, Foyle and Mourne for the past seven days waiting for a sign that David has been recovered. Hundreds have joined the search for the young man from Beechwood Grove who was last seen after escaping police custody after being arrested for being drunk and disorderly.To date the water has been very murky which has prevented many divers, including the PSNI team, from diving.However it is hoped that as it clears a thorough search of the waterway can be undertaken.Last night a source close to the family say they are hopeful that when the water on the rivers subsides, there will be more chance of finding David. “They just want him home now. Each passing day is agony for them. They know he’s not alive but they just want their son and brother back.“People have been very good and everyone is just wishing now that David will be found soon,” he said.EndsWICKLOW DIVERS JOIN THE SEARCH FOR LIFFORD MAN AS SEARCH ENTERS ITS NINTH DAY was last modified: May 31st, 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:David Colhounlast_img read more
