first_imgTrincao revealed that Griezmann was the first Barça player with whom he spoke because he contacted him: “I spoke to Griezmann, who sent me a message. He wrote: let’s go caralho”. Then he defined himself: “Mentally, I am a strong player. I seek to make goals and assists. I have a good one-on-one and I try to make assists. Since I was a child, when I watched the games I imagined playing at Barça. I think my style of play mixes well with Barça. “ Francisco Trincao (29-12-1999), player of Sporting de Braga who will be from Barça from June until 2025, was the protagonist of the ‘Live call’ that the Barça team makes weekly. Trincao, for whom Barça has paid 31 million euros (and will have a clause of 500), attended the official media from his home, where he is confined with his parents, his sister and his dog, Summer. “It will be a pride to wear the shirt of the best club in the world. I have many to know the players. We are talking about the best players in the world and of course I want to share the wardrobe with them. My family was happy when they heard the news of the signing And they asked me to be myself. Playing with Messi is a pride. I really want to meet him, to be able to play with him. He is one of the best players in the world. ” Of course, when they asked him for a reference in football, he did not want to define himself. Portuguese and culé …, he had to be careful: “They are Messi and Cristiano”.last_img read more

first_imgSome aggrieved farmers, who are women, have blamed the Johnsonville Township Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Bettie, for allegedly engaging into the sale of wetlands meant for farming purposes in the township.The women calling themselves, “Johnsonville Women Farmers’ Cooperative, made the disclosure recently to the Daily Observer newspaper in Paynesville.The spokesperson for the group, Ethel Williams, told this paper that about 7 hectares of farm land in Mount Barclay is being encroached upon.According to her, Commissioner Bettie is behind the sale of the wet land.“A relative of the commissioner is found selling the land for which he Bettie is aware. We have called his attention to this problem but to no avail,” she said.Madam William said that the land in question was given to them by the former commissioner of the township for farming activities.“Swamplands are public land and strictly intended for agricultural purposes. In 2009, we appealed for the land from the former commissioner and he allowed us to use it,” she said.“Unfortunately, today this particular land is being sold to some individuals, who have planted cornerstones on portions of the land. These people have constantly threatened the farmers and are backfilling the land,” she added.She further stated that this was posing a serious problem for them as many of the members of the farming organization were widows, who survived through farming, adding that such condition was a threat to food security.    When contacted, Commissioner Bettie denied the allegation as false and misleading. He said though he is aware of some people in his township engaging in the unscrupulous sale of land but was something that could not control.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The building, which has been empty for some time, was spotted by Londoner Paul Keogh and his Armagh-born artist wife Catherine during a weekend break in Rossnowlagh.The couple lived in Northern Ireland and Paul was painting and decorating a holiday home in Rossnowlagh for a friend.Catherine and their boys Thomas, seven, and Michael, five, were with him for the weekend and they had been on the beach.Paul said: “Catherine said ‘I could get used to it here’. She pointed to the building opposite the friary and added ‘that could be my art gallery and upstairs could be my art studio’.” Next morning as they came out of Mass they saw a “to let” sign on the building.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“I have a little bit of sight,” said Goncharenko. “But it’s like looking through dark wax paper. I can see the car movement as a dark blurry image. That’s how I tell it’s time to cross – when \ stop moving.” Goncharenko and his father, George Goncharenko, have made a formal request to the city, asking that officials install an audible pedestrian signal at the intersection – the type that makes a “chirping” or beeping noise when the “don’t walk” sign begins to flash. City officials have told them the city uses a point system to evaluate intersections to determine if more time at a traffic light is needed. “They came up with 13 points, but they need 15 in order to approve the signal,” George Goncharenko said. City traffic engineer Patrick Lang said officials are now arranging for the Braille Institute to perform a mobility evaluation to determine a final score for the intersection. MONTEBELLO – Ever since workers widened Wilcox Avenue, David Goncharenko finds it nearly impossible to get across the street and out of the way of traffic before the light changes to red. Goncharenko, 38, who became legally blind about four years ago after suffering a brain infection called cryptococcal meningitis, crosses Wilcox at Lincoln Avenue on his way to Amy’s Pastry shop on Beverly Boulevard each day. Where there used to be two lanes to walk across on Wilcox, there are now five. But the signal to walk across Wilcox starts flashing red after only four seconds. That makes it nearly impossible for not only the visually impaired but any slow-moving individuals to get across in time, he said. “The guidelines check number of accidents, configuration of the intersection, pedestrian activity, proximity to facilities that would be used by the blind, the number of bus routes, traffic volume, average speed and the width of the intersection,” said Lang, who added that the audible signals cost between $3,000 and $5,000, not including installation. Children from nearby Wilcox Elementary School cross Wilcox on their way home from school, George Goncharenko said. “I’ve seen kids get stuck in the middle when the light changed,” he said. “Sometimes they aren’t focused on the light. They aren’t paying attention and start crossing late.” The elder Goncharenko said in the time it takes for his son to see the cars stopping, he has already missed a couple of seconds of green light. “I use that route a lot and it would help my independence if they made that corner safe,” said David Goncharenko. “I’d like to have my independence and to give my parents a break.” pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE “The House may very well pass a totally unworkable proposal that will make some people feel good and give them a platform to demagogue on,” said Rep. Howard Berman, D-Van Nuys. But immigration-control advocates hailed the measure – particularly its employment verification provisions – as long overdue. “This bill is actually worth talking about because it’s not a smoke screen,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington D.C. think-tank that advocates a reduction in immigration. Under the House bill, all business owners would be required to verify the eligibility of every employee. Federal, state and local government employers – as well as the military and private employers at critical infrastructure sites like power plants – would have three years to check the eligibility status of their employees. WASHINGTON – Setting the stage for a bitter pre-Christmas fight, top House lawmakers introduced legislation Tuesday that would make it easier to deport legal – as well as illegal – immigrants and mandate a $360 million employee verification program. But despite insistence from President George W. Bush that any immigration measure must also create a way for America’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants to temporarily live and work in the U.S., the bill does not include such a provision. Democrats and some Republicans assailed the bill – by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc., and Peter King, R-N.Y. – as impractical, but acknowledged the House will likely pass it. Meanwhile, the Senate is expected to pass its own immigration legislation – including a guest-worker provision that would address Bush’s demands – virtually ensuring an even more acrimonious debate next year when the House and Senate try to mesh legislation. All other businesses would have six years. Verification would be done through the Department of Homeland Security.
