Ligue 1* Data updated as of April 13, 2020 There are still many questions to clear after the coronavirus pandemic, such as whether Ligue 1 will resume or if PSG will be able to continue signing at the same rate as in recent years. It seems difficult to think that everything will continue to be the same in the French capital, which must decide at the outset whether to keep Mauro Icardi as property. In fact, four big footballers from the squad could have played their last meeting with the Parisian team’s jersey if the competition did not return. Then there are the sides. Meunier has denied having it done with him. Borussia Dortmund and although he prefers to stay, he has called himself “big business”, although he has aroused the interest of several clubs. The same happens with Kurzawa, which they relate to both Sevilla and Arsenal.These four can go free in the summer (on the good side is the great salary savings they would have with their outings), but next year the same will happen to Angel of Mary. The case of the Argentinean and that of Kylian Mbappé (contract ends in 2022) with those who are most concerned at the offices of Paris. To this we must also add that average Europe He has two of his young talents on his agenda: Tanguy Kouassi and Adil Aouchiche. All this without taking into account that Neymar still interested in Barcelona. PSG has a big planning task ahead. Edinson Cavani, Thiago Silva, Thomas Meunier and Layvin Kurzawa finish contract, and they are all important players with offers that have not yet been renewed. The case of the Uruguayan striker seems sentenced, since with Thomas Tuchel He won’t have many opportunities as a starter as long as they continue Mbappé, Neymar and Icardi (for the Argentinean they must still exercise the purchase option). In winter he was close to joining the Atlético de Madrid, but now he will have time to choose (his mother says he prefers Spain). For his part, the captain is already 35 years old and it does not appear that he will prolong his contract. Recently, the Brazilian central defender dropped that he would like to return to Fluminense.
In the offices of Real Madrid, reports on plants begin to take on greater importance. The axis of defense is becoming a major issue, even more so with a new economic crisis lurking, requiring cunning and speed. By age and / or performance, the situations of Nacho (30 years old), Militao (22) and Sergio Ramos (34) make it necessary to monitor and bring other options closer to ensure the future. The most delicate position is that of Nacho, despite that motto of “always complies”. Zidane, like anyone else in the club, only has loving words (his press conference after the canterano’s saving goal against Valladolid serves as an example) and praise for him, But in 2019-20 its participation decline has begun to be pronounced. Last season was the one with the fewest minutes since 2015-16 and in this one, between the knee injury and the signing of Militao, who made him a central quarter, the same trend followed. He stopped with 641 minutes, the 22nd of the squad. With a contract until 2022, a considerable age and Madrid conditioned by the number of chips, it is transferable. And girlfriends are not going to miss it … 6 The performance of Ramos It is beyond doubt, but its future does have some uncertainty. Sometimes it’s hard to believe because of his physique, but on his next cake there will be a 35. In the club they have it very present and, as AS has told, they do not treat renewal as a matter of priority. Its current relationship is until 2021 and friction is looming because the player wants to extend until 2023, while Madrid, faithful to its policy with those over 30, would offer until 2022. Her partner with Varane, today, seems unbreakable. 3 Militao, exciting reinforcement due to versatility, youth and potential, has not materialized. It is early and in the club they keep his confidence, not in vain 50 million were paid for him and De Ligt was preferred last year. It penalizes him that his arrival was before Zidane’s return. The French coach publicly designated him as his third option, but with 992 minutes (17th of the team) has not allowed him much to show what pasta is made of. Meanwhile, with Brazil it has gained a fixed place in the calls. 4 This painting therefore requires a coat of paint, at least in the medium term. In the quarry there are no firm conditions to climb the step, but from the outside Yes, there are several names on the agenda. Zidane really likes Dayot Upamecano (21 years old), who wants to leave Leipzig this summer to take his big leap. His hiring will not be easy because Bayern is on the prowl …
LONDON (AP):Diego Costa ended a seven-game goal drought in style to help Chelsea open up a seven-point lead in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory over Southampton yesterday.The second-half double halted a barren run that began shortly after a reported dispute at the club as Costa was linked with a move to the financially-flush Chinese Super League.Even as the goals dried up and the uncertainty about Costa’s future persisted, manager Antonio Conte never doubted his striker’s ability to make an impact in the title run-in.important goal”For the forward, it’s very important to score … because the goal is your life,” Conte said. “But for me, I always said that I’m very pleased for his commitment, for his work for the team, because he’s always working for the team.”Costa was heavily involved as early as the fifth minute at Stamford Bridge when he set up Eden Hazard’s opener. After Gary Cahill restored Chelsea’s lead, Costa scored two contrasting goals in the second half.
Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 And while his fanatical response said a lot about James and his allegiance to the Indians, so did the tight, black T-shirt he wore on that unseasonably warm November night.It said: “Cleveland Or Nowhere.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownAs the sports world waits to see where the three-time champion intends to play next season and beyond, there remains the real possibility that James could choose to stay in Cleveland, his hoops home for 11 of the past 15 years and where this Northeast Ohio son shares a unique and profound connection with fans who have followed him since his teens.James has other options: Los Angeles (salary-cap space for another star, Magic Johnson in charge), Houston (a chance to play on a super team with MVP James Harden), Philadelphia (young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid), and maybe more. But, as has always been the case for James, home will pull at his heart.For the longest time, the perception was that once James ended Cleveland’s 52-year title drought in 2016, he would leave again as soon as he could. That doesn’t seem to be a slam dunk any longer.By Friday, James is expected to make his first move and likely decline a $35.6 million contract option for next season with the Cavs, who are hoping their past loyalties to the 33-year-old and his own sentimental attachments — family, legacy — will keep him in Cleveland.Unlike his free-agency forays in 2010 and 2014, James will not meet with prospective teams. He’s letting agent Rich Paul and his other representatives handle the business side of things as he vacations with family and makes up his mind.Months ago, James’ connection with the Cavs seemed broken, hopeless. Last summer’s shocking trade of All-Star Kyrie Irving, the team’s failed attempt to integrate guard Isaiah Thomas, a lack of playmakers, assorted injuries and coach Tyronn Lue’s medical issues contributed to James appearing ready to pull up stakes again and pursue championships elsewhere.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Wizards send Marcin Gortat to Clippers for Austin Rivers View comments Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding LATEST STORIES MOST READ “I will still continue to be in championship mode,” he said. “When I decide what I’m going to do with my future, my family and the folks that have been with me for the last 20 years will have a say-so.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)LeBron James sprung to his feet and screamed along with thousands of delirious Cleveland fans.When Indians outfielder Rajai Davis connected off Chicago Cubs reliever Aroldis Chapman for a tying home run in the eighth inning of Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, James came unglued and reacted the way he might after a monstrous dunk or back-breaking 3-pointer in the NBA Finals.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. But a funny thing happened on the way to the NBA Finals.James was boosted by general manager Koby Altman’s drastic-and-dramatic roster overhaul at the trading deadline, and despite a lack of cohesion and Vegas odds makers labeling the Cavs as underdogs, Cleveland advanced to a fourth straight summer showdown with Golden State, surviving two Game 7s and sweeping the top-seeded Toronto Raptors along the way.Of course, James did all the heavy lifting. He played in all 82 regular-season games and had perhaps his best postseason, averaging 34 points, 9.1 rebounds and 9.0 assists while making a pair of buzzer-beating shots and doing all he could in a Finals sweep that could have been much different if Cleveland had not lost Game 1 in overtime.“He gave his heart and soul, die-hard energy, commitment to this team, to this franchise, to the city, to Northeast Ohio,” Altman said last week after the Cavs drafted Alabama guard Collin Sexton, who quickly raised some eyebrows by choosing to wear No. 2, Irving’s number for six seasons with Cleveland. “It was an historical year and probably one of the best postseason runs of all time. We’re very, very fortunate to have him here and what he gave to this franchise this year was nothing short of remarkable.“We don’t take that for granted at all.”And it’s why the Cavs haven’t surrendered from the fight to keep him.Owner Dan Gilbert, whose relationship with James remains tricky if not rocky, has displayed a willingness to spend whatever’s necessary to keep his team championship competitive. That’s unlikely to change whether James extends his second stint with Cleveland.In a recent Business Insider podcast, Gilbert referred to James as a “partner,” an acknowledgment by the billionaire to what the superstar he once criticized means to his franchise.The appeal for James to stay home is different now than it was eight years ago when he bolted for Miami. He’s more mature, and with three children and a burgeoning business empire, his priorities, responsibilities and goals are different.After the Warriors finished their Finals sweep of the Cavs, James revealed an injured right hand but an unchanged view of the next phase of his career.

Dear Editor,Today, as President David Granger and his Government says the Administration has a clear policy regarding the sugar industry, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers’ Union (GAWU), and more so the wider Guyanese public, cannot, and should not, ignore that it has been several months since the State-owned Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), the single largest employer in the land, has met at the level of the Board.Following the surreptitious transfer of GuySuCo shares to NICIL at the end of 2017, the Government-holding company in a statement on February 25, advised that the Dr Clive Thomas-led Board was dissolved with effect from February 14, among other things. That announcement was followed up by a full-page coloured advertisement in all the dailies on March 15 at which time the Guyanese public was informed that a new Board, headed by Colvin Heath-London, was appointed. That advertisement indicated that the Government approved the Heath-London-headed Board on February 26, 2018. But swiftly and surprisingly following that advertisement there was the almost instantaneous denial by the Government. The Administration’s chief spokesperson, Minister of State Joseph Harmon in the March 16, Guyana Times was quoted saying “…this was a matter that was engaging the Cabinet and it still is”. Seemingly, it was an indication that someone jumped the gun.But while Minister Harmon was saying one thing, the March 11 another section of the media not only reported, but provided evidence – in the form of a Cabinet memorandum – which, among other things, purportedly bears Minister Harmon’s signature and which confirmed the appointment of the Board as per the NICIL advertisement. As the drama unfolded, the Guyanese people next heard from Agriculture Minister Noel Holder who, according to an April 27 in another media report, reportedly said NICIL “…might not have been properly advised about who is responsible for naming a board for the Guyana Sugar Corporation”. The Minister, in that same article, is quoted to say “[t]he Minister of Agriculture answers to Parliament for what happens to GuySuCo. I am accountable to this nation for its activities. Therefore, the Minister of Agriculture should have responsibility for GuySuCo; therefore the Minister of Agriculture should appoint the Board of GuySuCo”. This, ironically, is the same Minister Holder that is quoted in the February 22 as saying “GuySuCo is vested in National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL).So anyhow, with Minister Holder charged with naming the new Board, he told the public, according to the April 27 media report, that “…Cabinet hoped to appoint a new Board before the end of April ”. So, the Agriculture Minister, may be trying to pull the wool over our eyes, tells us on April 27 that he and his colleagues would have settled the GuySuCo Board in three days. Let’s give the Minister the benefit of the doubt. But, as funny as it were, the comical situation didn’t end there, as Minister Holder, according to the June 4 media report, reportedly said “[b]y the end of this month [June, 2018], the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) will have a new Board in place…”. Then the comedy of errors continued when, according to the July 5 Guyana Times, Minister Holder, who apparently was attending a Cabinet meeting when the newspaper contacted him, said “…they [the Government] could make an announcement soon…”.The laughable, yet serious, situation persisted when INews reported on August 6 that Minister of State Joseph Harmon said on the matter “…the long awaited Board will be installed by the end of next week”. Finally, we see the arrival of the star of the show, President David Granger who, according to the September 3 Guyana Times, is quoted at his August 31 press conference to have said “[w]e are selecting a Board of Directors; the members of which would be more knowledgeable in sugar production… we need to have a serious Board…”. The President’s statements indeed are what is needed once the reputable and competent persons can be found but, at the same time, brings us no closer to dealing with the matter at hand. So while thumbs, from all appearances, are being twiddled, the GuySuCo has borrowed $30 billion towards financing its resuscitation and there is no Board to guide or even overlook the process. We ask is the Government really sincere when it says it has a clear outlook for the sugar industry? From our vantage point the reality paints a very different picture. This story of the appointment of the GuySuCo Board, in our sincere view, has the makings of a great Shakespearian play.Yours faithfully,Seepaul NarineGeneral SecretaryGAWU

WASHINGTON – More than a half-million pieces of Chinese-made children’s jewelry contaminated with lead are being recalled, it was announced Wednesday. The recalled merchandise involves 205,000 pieces sold by Family Dollar Stores Inc., 200,000 pieces sold by Michaels Stores Inc., 43,000 charm bracelets and tack pin sets sold by Big Lots Inc. and 45,000 stretchable bracelets imported by Cherrydale Fundraising LLC, 10,400 necklaces and bracelets manufactured by Colossal Jewelry & Accessories Inc., and 4,500 necklace and earring sets made by La Femme NY 2 Inc., officials announced. The enforcement action was a cooperative effort by New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo and the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC said it was tipped about the hazardous jewerly by Cuomo’s office. In addition to the recall, a number of retailers, including Big Lots and Michaels, agreed in a settlement to immediately stop sales of lead-tainted jewelry. “Today’s metal jewelry recalls are a good example of when CPSC partners with a state agency that shares our commitment to protecting children from products with dangerous lead,” spokesman Scott Wolfson said. “Metal jewelry is a product where one child has died in the past and others have suffered lead poisoning.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The CPSC works with companies to issue recalls when it finds consumer goods that can be harmful. Most such recalls are voluntary. Under current regulations, children’s products found to have more than .06 percent lead are usually subject to a recall, in which the company must reimburse consumers for the value of the product, provide a replacement or offer a repair.
The first steps have been taken in the effort to have the Metropolitan Area Networks’s for broadband lit in Buncrana and Carndonagh, Deputy Charlie McConlogue now believes.His comments came following a successful public meeting last night in Buncrana, which was organised by Deputy McConalogue and where local businesses and public sector organisations where represented along with other public representatives.Commenting on the meeting McConalogue said, “It was a productive meeting in that it was about communicating the benefits of the networks to organisations. “Niall Beirne, the e|net representative gave us a full overview of where the networks are currently at. It was informative and it highlighted the further need to work together to make the business case to have the MAN’s lit”.“By working together we can not only communicate the benefits of the networks but also work towards bringing down the costs of the service which are an inhibiting factor at present.“Key to this is to further determine the real level of demand which exists both among private organisations and publically owned organisations. The meeting last night was a useful first step in this process.“It is unacceptable that we are in a situation whereby we have the infrastructure available to us but not in a position to use it. “We need to move towards a solution to this and I believe the interest and support shown to date has been heartening and a collective effort will be instrumental in achieving a result”, concluded McConalogue.EndsMCCONALOGUE PRAISES FIRST STEPS TO HIGH SPEED BROADBAND NETWORKS was last modified: September 27th, 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:broadbanddeputy charlie mcconalogue
