Life with Koke is better

first_imgKoke’s springKoke returned to Granada. Headline. And, voila, Atlético won again. It would already be a trend. If in his absence he staggered until the presence in the Champions positions, at this moment the Cholo team is again third. After Granada came Valencia, tie, and later Liverpool, the ‘coconut’ of Europe, the champion of the Champions, the Klopp team that had only lost two games in the season, and one played with his team C, and 1-0, victory rojiblanca, and then did Villarreal, the team with which Cholo has the worst winning percentage (33%) in the League behind Madrid (24%) and Barça (0%), and also wins. And Koke’s goal, the third of the season, but the first of his life that he can dedicate to his son, Leo. Life with Koke as pirate life, life better. The numbers are incontestable but even more so are the sensations. February Athletic has nothing to do with January. Then he chained a month without winning in the League, now zero losses in four games. A discharge changed everything. The one of Koke Resurrection (Madrid, 1992), the bracelet returned to its arm, the victory also to the Athletic one. The pitos that a part of the stands dedicated to him in September sound more like heresy. That’s why he always plays, what Simeone might say. There is no Atlético footballer who improves his teammates as the captain does.Koke was injured on December 22 in the match against Betis (1-2) and was also low in the next, before Levante (2-1). He forced himself to be in Arabia, the Spanish Super Cup, but could only play 27 minutes against Barcelona. There, clack, myotendious lesion, obligation to stop. How he lived the Super Cup derby from the stands, unable to help his teammates on the grass, while still getting up in his seat, going down to cheer on his teammates at the end of the 90’s, before the penalties, was another game within the match Then winter fell on Atlético. Cold winter, lead. Five games without the captain, four defeats. Madrid in the Super Cup, Eibar in Liga, Cultural in Copa and Madrid again in Liga. In between, Leganés, tie. Very cold winter. last_img read more

Guyana hosts 2nd National STEM Robotic Exhibition

first_imgFifteen schools and science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) clubs were participants in this year’s National Robotic Exhibition on Saturday, and a number of innovative projects were on display at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.These clubs and other technological agencies across Guyana took the opportunity to showcase their robots which were built with a specific focus in mind: to eradicate some common problems in the environment and society.A robotic garbage collectorLeading the exhibition was Guyana’s very own STEM team, which served as a pilot for upcoming inventors to gauge their interests into effective robotic creations. These individuals were also given a chance to develop communicational and problem-solving skills, as well as foster involvement in collaborative projects.Present at Saturday’s activities was Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, who lauded the coordinators for their inputs into the exhibition, and said he believes technology is the way forward for Guyana.Guyana Times caught up with some of the students as they showcased their robotic creations. Members of the Volunteer Youth Corps (VYC) noted that this is their first year at the exhibition, and their robot was constructed by primary school students. While the invention was a simple one, the students stated that they’re using the exhibit to gain ideas which can help to enhance their robot.“We’re in the first and basic stage of robotics. We’re dealing with primary school kids, and within one week the kids used four days to put together the robot. We’re now learning how to programme the robot,” said Lisa Khan.Tyrique Wilson of the Belladrum STEM Club noted that this is a way to publicise their robot and entice more persons to join the club.“We made a crane. We wanted to push how far we can go with the actual kit, and we decided to make a crane that is fully functional, and we created programmes for it,” he explained.The St Rose’s High School also presented a device to water small gardens. It functioned by detecting the colour of the leaves of a plant, and supplying that plant with a suitable amount of water.The most spectacular robot was created by the Three Miles Secondary at Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni/Mazaruni). It was designed to solve a Rubix cube using sensors to detect the spectrum of colours.In most instances, the robots were made from locally sourced and recycled materials, and took a maximum of one week to complete. This is one of the many initiatives which have been organised by STEM Guyana to advance the level of technology while providing training for youths.last_img read more

Burnley fail to reach Europa League group stages after draw against Olympiakos

Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won highlights possible standings center_img MONEY smart causal How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures silverware As in the first leg, Burnley wore black armbands as a mark of respect for Jimmy McIlroy, the club great who died last week aged 86 and whose funeral service takes place at the stadium on Friday.The starting line-up showed seven changes from Sunday’s 4-2 loss at Fulham, with 18-year-old McNeil making his first start as he came in on the left wing as a replacement for the injured Johann Berg Gudmundsson.There was an early scare for the hosts when McNeil lost possession and Olympiakos broke forward, but Podence could only send a shot tamely wide having entered the box.Burnley started to find some rhythm after that, and Vokes had a penalty appeal waved away by referee Viktor Kassai, hooked a shot over the bar and then twice failed to convert from great positions. Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack The first instance saw him head wide as he connected with McNeil’s cross and he then headed too high when the ball came to him following a corner.Some pressure from Olympiakos followed, with Podence hitting an attempt into the side-netting and another over, either side of Miguel Guerrero shooting into Tom Heaton’s arms.Burnley’s woes in front of goal then continued shortly before the interval as Vokes teed up Barnes, whose shot went just wide.In the third minute of the second half Vokes went the closest yet as his shot from outside the area came back off the post and five minutes later Gianniotis did well to tip McNeil’s firm strike over. Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Latest Football News Burnley’s hopes of making the Europa League group stage came to an end as a 1-1 draw with Olympiakos at Turf Moor in their qualifying play-off second leg saw them lose the tie 4-2 on aggregate.Knowing a 2-0 win on the night would be enough to send them through, Sean Dyche’s Clarets created some great chances in the first half but were unable to take them, with Sam Vokes sending one header wide and another over.

Whittier police take aim at drunk drivers

first_imgWHITTIER – Whittier Police Department and California Highway Patrol officers are putting more teeth into their usual holiday admonition: Don’t drink and drive.“We’ll put every available officer out there on the road between now and the end of the year to prevent (alcohol-related collision) numbers from going up, and to influence people to drive carefully, cautiously, and to wear seat belts,” CHP spokesman Steve Kohler said. Whittier ranks 27th among 97 California cities in the number of alcohol-involved collisions for adults ages 22 to 34, said Mike Marando, spokesman for the state Office of Traffic Safety.That’s primarily why his office has awarded Whittier a grant to increase DUI education and enforcement programs, Maran-do said.This year, Whittier police have used part of the $93,929 grant to fund the “Every 15 Minutes” program in high schools. It involves graphic depictions of vehicle collisions to teach young drivers about the risks of driving under the influence and not wearing a seat belt.The grant also funded a special year-round, two-officer DUI enforcement team. For the next two holiday weekends, the team – augmented by regular Whittier police patrol units – will be on the hunt for intoxicated drivers. Some of the state grant also will pay for holiday sobriety checkpoints, Whittier police said.“The potential for more collisions during the holidays is there because of the amount of people not participating in their daily routines of work and school,” said Whittier police Sgt. Dan Lowe. “There are more people on the roadways, and during the holidays people celebrate by consuming alcohol.”Although a recent sobriety checkpoint in Whittier re-sulted in no arrests, Whittier ranks third of 97 comparably sized cities for alcohol-involved collisions involving drivers under 21, Marando said.Statewide, traffic fatalities during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend were up this year – 60 people died, compared with 53 last year, Kohler said.Of the 60 people killed over the Thanksgiving holiday, at least 30 were not wearing a seat belt, he said.So far this year, Whittier has not had any alcohol-related traffic fatalities. And Lowe hopes that record holds through the New Year’s holiday.“Last year, we had two fatalities and 51 injuries directly related to alcohol,” said Lowe. “This year, we have not as of yet had any alcohol-related fatalities through September, and we’ve only had 21 injury traffic collisions.” for the past three years sandy.mazza@sgvn.com(562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SA hockey teams in action in London

first_img9 July 2014 South Africa’s men’s and women’s hockey teams will be aiming to build on successful endings to the recent World Cup when they take part in the Investec Cup in London from Wednesday. On Wednesday, the women open their challenge against Scotland, while the men’s first outing will be against Ireland. With the Commonwealth Games starting in Glasgow on 23 July, the competition is an excellent opportunity for the South African teams to fine-tune their games in London. The Investec Cup will also celebrate the opening of the new London Olympics 2012 legacy venue, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, which has now become England hockey’s national stadium.Line-ups England, Scotland, Ireland and South Africa, all Commonwealth Games contestants, make up the men’s line-up in London, while the women’s teams are also Commonwealth Games sides, namely England, Scotland, Wales and South Africa. “We will only have one training here before the Scotland match so we be looking at getting our processes right in that game,” South African women’s captain Marsha Cox said on the bus to the venue on Tuesday afternoon. World number 11 South Africa beat Japan, the world’s ninth-ranked team 2-0 to finish ninth at the World Cup and if they get can back into the groove quickly it will stand them in good stead. They also scored an impressive 4-1 win over England, who went into the tournament ranked third in the world. Double Olympian defender Lenise Marais, so cruelly denied a World Cup experience after serious injury forced her out at the eleventh hour, returns to the women’s team.Tough Irish challenge Looking ahead to his side’s opener, South African men’s captain Austin Smith said after arriving at the team’s accommodation at East London University (ELU) that the Irish punch above their weight. “The last time we met, before the Olympics in 2012, they beat us, and we will only have had one training session (Wednesday night), so we will be focusing more on getting ourselves familiar with the game plan and carrying on where we left off during the 6-2 win over Malaysia at the World Cup in June,” said Smith. He also said former South African men’s assistant coach Craig Fulton, who is now the head of the Ireland coaching staff, will be familiar with the South African style of play.South African Investec Cup fixtures (SA time) 9 JulySA women vs Scotland 12:00SA men vs Ireland 18:15 10 JulySA women vs England 14:15SA men vs England 20:30 12 JulySA men vs Scotland 10.45SA women vs Wales 18:15 13 JulyPlayoffs for final placings SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
