first_imgThe third time was in Spain, in a formidable setting: the La Romareda stadium, in Zaragoza, It was the stage chosen to end an encounter that began with the El Sadar stadium in Pamplona and ended with a 50-minute encounter in the Aragonese capital: Due to a series of incidents caused mostly by the most radical supporters of the rojillo team, Osasuna-Madrid from the 1988-89 season had to be suspended upon receiving Buyo, a Real Madrid goal, a firecracker as well as various object launches. The referee for the match, Socorro González, suspended the match in the 42nd minute. On January 31, 1989, the Competition Committee decided that the setting to settle the remaining time would be La Romareda and behind closed doors. Chendo played that time (he had been a starter in Pamplona), and he saw how Hugo Sánchez balanced the game with a goal from a direct free kick. Chendo would retire in 1998 being champion of Europe. He became a team delegate. Y in this way he has lived two other closed-door meetings. The first, against Roma, at the Olympic. The Roman team were sanctioned by UEFA when Swedish referee Anders Frisk was hit by an object thrown from the stands in a match against Dynamo Kiev. Madrid also won (0-3, goals by Ronaldo and two by Figo, one from a penalty). There before some 1,000 people between delegations of both teams, VIP tickets (UEFA sponsors plus people are on duty (police, fire and medical technicians)… and ten white fans, debuted again on these issues. There he attended the requests of García Remón, coach at the time of the first team of Madrid. Changes, annotations, instructions, all in a magnificent setting where the screams among the companions could be heard even through television.The last one was in Warsaw, in a match against the Polish Legia in 2016. The radical supporters of the Polish group, one of the most violent in the entire European continent, caused a pitched battle in the match that his team lost to Borussia Dortmund (0-6), in the first match of the Champions League playoffs. Poles and Germans had been placed with Madrid and Sporting Lisbon in Group F, and UEFA’s sanctions were not going to be short: closing the field in the match against Madrid and an economic fine of 80,000 euros for insufficient organization and access to the stands blocked. And there, in Warsaw, behind closed doors saw the fastest goal that Madrid has scored in the Champions League: Bale impaled a left-foot shot that Malarz, the Polish goalkeeper, could not stop.Chendo was there. The only protagonist who has lived five empty-door matches for Real Madrid. The man who was always there. Yes. It was always there. Maybe it didn’t attract attention. He was not one of the most important, but his role, with the passage of time, has made him a luxury secondary in the exciting career of Real Madrid. His name is Miguel Porlan Noguera. He is known by his nickname, Chendo (‘Chendi’ for Zidane). For many, he was the sixth man in The Quinta del Buitre. A former soccer player who belongs to the white club since he entered the 70s. From Murcia, he acted on the right side from 1982 to 1998, the year in which he became the team’s delegate. What if. He is a chosen one who has lived the five games that Madrid has played behind closed doors live. Four with the first team and one with Castilla, in 1980. At that time it was already emerging. The band went up without problems and closed the attacking rival without any problem. In the 1980-81 season, Castilla had the honor of being the Spanish representative in the European Cup Winners’ Cup. He had played the Cup final against the majors, and had lost 6-1. The draw resulted in a showdown with English West Ham. The first match, played on September 17, 1980, ended with a resounding victory for whitebirds 3-1, after tracing Cross’s initial goal. Paco, Balín and Cidón turned him around in a frantic second half: they scored three goals in 12 minutes, from 64 to 76 ‘. Everything was pending for the return. Nevertheless, the behavior of the hooligans hammers, causing altercations in the Bernabéu and surroundings, motivated UEFA to rule that the second leg would be played behind closed doors. And there, at Boleyn Ground, in Upton Park, London, he played 120 minutes of the game. Castilla would be eliminated in overtime, but that experience would never be forgotten. UEFA allowed a small number of people (262) at the English stadium. His second experience was at the Bernabéu … and nothing more, nothing less, against the Naples of Maradona, the champion of Italy. In 1987, UEFA, uncompromising in the 1980s after the barbarism of Heysel (1985), sanctioned Madrid with a harsh sanction after a match plagued by incidents between the Whites and Bayern Munich: they would have to play a game on goal closed and another 300 kilometers from the capital. The hype ruled that the meringues would face the match in the first round. And there, before just 200 people, the madridistas finally beat the Italians 2-0, with goals from Míchel, a penalty, and Tendillo. But The best of the game was carried out by Chendo himself: he tried to spout Maradona himself. Al Diego who a year earlier had proclaimed himself world champion in Mexico. A Diego who was subjected to an imperial marking by the Murcian, who stopped him without committing hardly any fouls. He was so surprised by Chendo’s manner that he asked Valdano to have dinner with him that same night … The same Valdano who would later say: “It was as if the birds were throwing themselves at shotguns.” last_img read more

first_imgAs Liberia begins an unusually introspective line up of activities marking this year’s Independence Day, Catholic Archbishop Lewis Zeigler has stated that Liberians have to individually reflect and divert from activities that have negative impact on the country.Speaking in an exclusive interview following the National Intercessory Prayer service on Sunday, July 20, Archbishop Zeigler said every Liberian is responsible for the wrong in the society and not just a single group or person.According to the Catholic Archbishop, Liberians are quick to take advantage of situation to do what will harm their fellowmen, and if the country is to go in the desirable direction that people yearn for, each individual should see reason to examine himself/herself and stop pointing finger at another person.Making reference to the current financial crisis facing the country, the Liberian prelate said Liberians are deliberately inflicting prices of locally and imported commodities in the country and attributing it to high exchange rate between the Liberian and US dollars.He noted that corruption though is endemic here, individual Liberian is responsible and should not point at only those in positions.The Liberian dollar is depreciating against the United States dollar with the current rate standing at 87L$ to 1US$, after reaching 92L$ last week.As the rate increases, prices of locally produced commodities and services increase likewise.  Businesspeople and service providers attribute the increase in prices to the rate.As a result of this economic condition, L$5, which is the smallest denomination, can no longer purchase anything substantial.Destinations to which commuters paid L$10 before now cost L$20 and above.Archbishop Zeigler, who is renowned for preaching against societal ills, told this paper that while laws are there for people to obey, they (people) tend to do their own things to the detriment of the rule of law.He stressed that it takes each person’s contribution in the society to make the country the way Liberians want it, noting, “We have to individually examine ourselves and clear off our own faults before pointing at others for theirs.”Commenting on the reason for the declaration that this year’s Independence Day is to be characterized by intercessory prayers in churches and mosques, Archbishop Zeigler said it was necessary that Liberians pray because strange disasters, including the deadly Ebola disease, are springing up in the country, and no one knows why such things are happening.He disclosed things happen to serve as signs for certain things God wants people to change, and as such Liberians should see the current events as warnings and have the consciousness to change.Archbishop Lewis Zeigler has over the last year spoken against the increase in homosexual and lesbian activities in Liberia and said it was against God’s will.  At the same time he spoke against the rampant corruption in government and private places, which he noted was causing many Liberians to face poverty.He intoned that the declaration for national intercessory prayer was expedient because Liberians, being a people with different ways of life from other peoples of the world, need God’s intervention to rescue them.This year’s Independence Day celebration will be characterized by prayers. The will be no parties or receptions as is customary.Government had earlier suggested the program to be held in Sinoe and Grand Kru Counties, as other counties had hosted the celebration in previous years. The plan was cancelled, however, due to the spread of Ebola.Over the last fees weeks, Liberians including former Public Works Minister Samuel Kofi Woods had suggested the day be observed as a national prayer day to seek God’s intervention in upholding the peace of the country, as vices such as corruption have become rampant.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_imgA little over 5,000 residents and business entities in one of Monrovia’s hard to reach communities of Paynesville have sounded an urgent appeal to be connected to the Liberia Electricity Corporation’s (LEC) power supply lines.In a week-long survey of permanent residents and business owners at the Moses Blah and Soul Clinic Communities in the Paynesville commercial district, potential power customers expressed their need for speedy connections of their homes and businesses.“We urgently want the LEC’s power supply connections owing to the growing wave of armed robberies and other related offenses in the two separate communities in Paynesville,” businessman Augustus Browne pleaded.“I and other business owners continue to lose hundreds of dollars and other valuable properties at the hands of suspected criminal gangsters marauding our communities over the five and half years in Paynesville,” Mr. Browne asserted.As an operator of a well stocked provision shop, Mr. Browne pointed out that the need for sustained power supply is critical at Soul Clinic Community in Paynesville.Browne recalled that since the LEC’s line crew installed light poles at the Parker Paint/ Wood Camp Junction, their communities have remained in perpetual darkness, and at the mercy of suspected criminal gangsters in Paynesville.A female businesswoman who owns a large building with two provision shops attached told the Daily Observer that she consistently appealed for LEC’s power connection in the Moses Blah Community but to no avail.Businesswoman Bertha Jones Washington said her two provision shops have on many occasions become targets of suspected criminal gangsters. Mrs. Washington disclosed that she has  spent too much money over the last three years hiring the services of private security in order to protect the shops, occupants and stand-by generator.“I wish to appeal to the kind conscience of the managers and directors at LEC to consider the expansion of power supply on the main streets of the Coco-Cola Factory, Soul Clinic and Moses Blah communities,” Mrs. Washington pleaded.In a related development, the owners of several video and food entertainment centers have sounded an urgent call on the LEC’s management to consider, as an emergency matter, the provision of power supply in those populated communities.A leading video proprietor, Blamah Korhene, told the Daily Observer that LEC’s power supply in those areas would greatly enhance the profit margins of their businesses on the major streets of the Moses Blah Road in Paynesville.Businessman Korhene noted that the provision adequate and sustained power supply in crime-prone  communities would deter suspected criminal gangsters from storming businesses and private homes. “I would be very grateful if the LEC’s line crew managers and directors could consider our community, which is infested with suspected criminal gangsters, as a top priority in this year’s plan of action,” Mr. Korhene stressed. Sometime ago top LEC’s managers and directors told the Daily Observer that plans and other vital documents had been crafted for implementation during this year’s Dry Season in Monrovia.Photo: Head-quarters of LEC situated Down Town commercial district of Waterside in MonroviaShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgAs a healthcare professional, one of the biggest practice challenges I continue to face, and might be shared by my peers, is the significant shortage of medical doctors in hospitals. In addition, I have also witnessed a frustrating gap in the absence of formal management and leadership training provided to medical doctors, many of whom, immediately upon graduation from medical school, assume roles as County Health Officers (CHOs) or double as CHOs and hospital personnel. Note that the work of a CHO is highly administrative and does not generally involve clinical practice. This has a significant trickledown effect on the ordinary citizens thus further weakening the health care system. What makes the matter worse is in the Liberian context about which I write this article, the doctor to patient ratio is a staggering 1 doctor to over 76,000 patients. In 2013, there were only 51 medical doctors in the country, and some died during the Ebola outbreak. Given such a gap, does it make lots of sense to remove the scarce number of doctors from the theater, meaning the operating room and bedside of patients, so that they can serve as practicing healthcare administrators? And for those of us who have watched these doctors at work as County Health Officers, their inability to navigate the political bureaucracy or deal with personnel issues becomes natural consequences of being put in positions to do what they are not taught to do. Doctors, at least in Liberia, are trained to deliver clinical care, but when they are misplaced in administrative positions, the result can only be the kinds of mishaps we see happening in the society. Sadly, many medical doctors trained in Liberia never get to sharpen their skills in developing treatment plans and seeing patients and then transition quickly on to becoming County Health Officers. They end up not practicing the clinical art of diagnosis and treatment and over time become mere healthcare administrators.Speaking as a nurse and public health specialist, I have witnessed doctors assigned at hospitals and also as CHO/CEO continually attend meetings outside their duty stations; meaning, patients who require emergency medical attention might have to pass away or travel to other facilities long distances away. This situation is worse when considering the hours it takes to reach hospitals and even clinics/health centers, especially in rural Liberia. The question that keeps looming in my head is the following: Is this the best use of our limited healthcare human resources, particularly our doctors? Could we not utilize the skills of the many graduates of graduate programs in public health in the County Health Officer role? Could we not train college graduates to become county health officers especially those with backgrounds in Nursing and related fields? Have you ever felt overwhelmed as a nurse working with a doctor whose clinical knowledge is so sparse because he or she has spent much of their professional life in administrative positions? Could this issue be the source of the many unexplained deaths that are occurring in hospitals? Could it also be that the scarcity of practicing medical doctors is overwhelming the few who are practicing to violate medical ethics by working longer hours than they should? Or could it be the reason why some regional hospitals depend on foreign doctors (contractors) for day-to-day patient care?As a society, if these issues are not tackled in a substantive way, the investment of national resources in medical education will certainly not produce the needed dividend. We have contained the Ebola outbreak, but there could be other epidemic outbreaks on the horizon requiring more practicing/experienced healthcare professionals, including medical doctors. What public policy remedies are proactively being employed to ensure that when that time comes, the society will be prepared to fully optimize the already small number of trained doctors that we have? The key to leveraging our healthcare investments is making sure that the few doctors that have been trained at home and abroad return to the hospital and clinics full time, doing what they were prepared to do professionally. Therefore, let medical doctors be left alone to do medical work and let those with the requisite qualifications be ushered in regardless of their professions (not being restricted to medical doctors or staff). Furthermore, medical doctors who so desire to be CHOs/CEOs can be given study opportunities to enable them advance themselves.

first_imgWASHINGTON – My sister warned me. Just wait, she said. You’ll be fighting with Olivia about clothes and things she wants to buy. Not my child, I protested. Remember, she lives with a mother who can squeeze a penny so hard that Lincoln winces. My child couldn’t possibly have such tendencies. But my sister was right. My oldest daughter, who is now 12, is often irritated that I’ve made the mall a mostly forbidden zone. She’s allowed to venture there only a few times a year when absolutely necessary, such as when her toes are crushed inside her shoes or her jeans could be mistaken for capri pants because they are so short. Kevin Durant, the No. 2 NBA draft pick for the Seattle SuperSonics, is working with Nike to develop a reasonably priced sneaker. Although the shoe may not debut for at least a year, the strategy is worth noting now. “The whole concept behind Kevin’s desire to see more affordable shoes in the marketplace stems from his belief that kids should be able to make a purchase for quality shoes without their families having to make huge financial sacrifices,” said Mary C. Ford, public relations director for Goodwin Sports Management, which represents Durant. “Kevin is a product of two parents that worked hard every day to provide for him and his brother and knows that a lot of inner-city kids are not as fortunate.” Durant is following other NBA players who are doing the same thing. Stephon Marbury of the New York Knicks teamed up last year with New York-based retailer Steve & Barry’s to create a basketball sneaker for $14.98. Ben Wallace of the Chicago Bulls will launch his new basketball shoe and clothing line Oct. 29. The line is called the Big Ben Collection. All affordably priced and also sold at Steve & Barry’s. I love that $14.98 price, especially considering how fast kids grow. As the mother of a 9-year-old son, the price of the sneakers makes me want to skip. As you might expect, I would never buy my son – or allow him to purchase – the $100-plus sneakers endorsed by sports figures such as Michael Jordan. And I can’t believe any child of his age would need such an extravagance. Furthermore, I wouldn’t want to put him or my daughters in harm’s way. You hear about robberies involving the ridiculously and shamefully overpriced Air Jordans or high-end coats bearing The North Face logo. In the late 1990s, kids were being robbed of their high-priced Eddie Bauer coats. Thank goodness there’s a growing trend for affordable but hip items that won’t make your kid a target. Tennis star Venus Williams has collaborated with Steve & Barry’s to produce a good-quality but low-priced line of clothing and shoes. Called “EleVen,” the line features more than 120 pieces, including several styles of athletic footwear and athletic apparel, jeans, gym bags and jackets. The best part is that everything in her EleVen line is priced at less than $20. Williams announced details of the line last month at the U.S. Open. The apparel will hit store shelves Nov. 15 and will be sold exclusively at Steve & Barry’s nationwide. Athletes working to sell quality, inexpensive clothes should be commended and their lines supported. “It’s not every celebrity or athlete who remembers where they came from and what their parents had to do to clothe and feed their family,” said Howard Schacter, chief partnership officer for Steve & Barry’s, who also manages the celebrity brands. “These are people who came from humble beginnings, and they have not forgotten that.” Steve & Barry’s should be commended as well. Schacter said the retailer is searching for other big-name personalities who embrace the good-quality-but-low-price vision. “We want to work with people who share the same passion that your self-esteem and money shouldn’t be wrapped up in the logo that appears on your shoe or your jeans pocket or the breast pocket of your shirt.” Now that’s a retailer who shares my philosophy.

first_imgTHE HAGUE, Netherlands – Slobodan Milosevic was under pressure to wind up his defense in a few weeks and he often stayed up late preparing questions for witnesses. Doctors repeatedly warned of the risk from his chronic high blood pressure compounded by the stress. On Saturday morning, a guard at the U.N. jail found the former Yugoslav leader lifeless in bed at age 64. It was an abrupt end to his four-year U.N. war crimes tribunal for orchestrating a decade of conflict that killed 250,000 people and tore the Yugoslav federation asunder. Just last month, Milosevic complained in court of a “thundering noise” in his head. The next day he cut short an examination of a witness because of another headache. The following day, Feb. 24, he protested the refusal of presiding Judge Patrick Robinson to let him go to Moscow for treatment, but Robinson cut him off. “I’m not going to consider this,” Robinson told him. The chief U.N. war crimes prosecutor, Carla Del Ponte, expressed regret, saying she believed she would have won a conviction. “I also regret it for the victims, the thousands of victims, who have been waiting for justice,” Del Ponte told Swiss Television DRS while visiting her native Switzerland. Former President Clinton, whose administration confronted Milosevic’s regime, also lamented that no verdict would be reached. “I am sorry that his trial will not be completed, and that he did not acknowledge and apologize for his crimes before his death. Nevertheless, his capture and trial will serve as a reminder that egregious crimes against humanity will not be tolerated,” Clinton said in a statement released by his office in New York. Milosevic was accused of being behind a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing against non-Serbs during the wars that erupted as the Yugoslav federation began breaking apart in 1991, and his death was cheered by many in the Balkans. The tribunal said a guard at the U.N. jail in suburban Scheveningen found Milosevic’s body between 9 and 10 a.m. Saturday. The timing of his death was not released. An autopsy will be conducted Sunday by Dutch officials – with a pathologist from Serbia-Montenegro in attendance. Milosevic’s older brother, Borislav, said the family did not trust the tribunal to carry out an impartial autopsy. He blamed the tribunal for his brother’s death because it rejected his request to get medical treatment in Russia, which offered assurances that Milosevic would be returned to finish his trial. “All responsibility for this lies on the shoulders of the international tribunal. He asked for treatment several months ago, they knew this,” Borislav Milosevic told The Associated Press in Moscow, where he lives. “They drove him to this as they didn’t want to let him out alive.” There was no comment from Milosevic’s wife, Mirjana, who was often characterized as a power behind the scenes during her husband’s autocratic rule and has been in self-imposed exile in Russia since 2003. Their son, Marko, also lives in Russia, and their daughter, Marija, lives in Montenegro. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Milosevic apparently died of natural causes, according to the U.N. tribunal that was trying him on 66 counts of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. His chronic heart ailments and high blood pressure had caused numerous long recesses in the trial. The death came nearly five years after Milosevic was arrested by Serb authorities and extradited to The Hague as the first sitting head of state ever to be indicted for war crimes. It meant there would be no judicial verdict for the leader accused of ethnic massacres and other atrocities in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo and was sure to increase criticism of the tribunal for what has been a long, expensive and ultimately wasted proceeding. The trial, which began in February 2002, will be terminated, tribunal spokeswoman Alexandra Milenov said. last_img read more
