Pochettino among Red Devils: the image that clarifies his future

first_imgAs well, some images of him attending the Championship match between Brentford and Leeds have triggered rumors even more. The technician could be seen accompanied by Neil Ashton, head of public relations and one of the assistants of Ed woodward, owner of Manchester United, witnessing the meeting of Championship in which Brentford and Leeds tied one. That image has triggered suspicion about Mauricio’s possible arrival at Old Trafford.The coach himself has admitted on some occasion that his desire is to continue training in the Premier League and to be able to be in one of the important teams, so the presence in a box with United leaders can be considered as an approach towards their desire. Pochettino was fired from Tottenham just a few months after reaching the first final in the history of the Champions League with the Spurs. Even so, it retains a very high sign in England. Mauricio Pochettino He is one of the technicians who enter all the pools as a possible tenant of one of the important benches in England since next season. The Argentine coach, who was fired from Tottenham at the end of last year, is in the list of candidates to do with the position of coach of several of the big sets of the Premier They are going through a bad time.last_img read more

Barça wake up on time

first_imgHe woke up in time in Barcelona in Naples where he started a draw to one that will allow him to decide in the Camp Nou his pass to the quarterfinals whenever he wins the Gattuso team. Barça was at risk of hitting another hit with a great moral draft, but both Griezmann and Ter Stegen stops kept the ship afloat.It may be that Messi’s words when he said last week in an interview that today Barcelona did not have a team to win the Champions League influenced more than we believe in the mood of the costumes. That, or that the Argentine had more reason than a saint. Whatever it was, Barça went out to play San Paolo, self-conscious and cowardly. Shyness came in from the bench, where an alignment and a timid approach were developed. A game plan that, incidentally, seemed banished from the day that argument was used to decapitate Valverde. But time passes and we continue in them.With Rakitic and Vidal in the center of the field and Umtiti as central instead of Lenglet, Barça went out to play under the premise that time would pass without anything happening. It helped this scenario that Naples not put forward its pressure and let Barçá get lost again in a carousel of useless passes in areas of the countryside without any significance. Between them they perpetrated the first half hour more soporific of football that is remembered in a long time. There are empty fish tanks with more action than was seen yesterday in this infamous start of the game. The course of events could only change through an error that facilitated the work to the contrary and it fell from the Blaugrana side. Junior mishandled a ball raffled by Piqué, Zielinski accelerated the game and passed it to Mertens who beat Ter Stegen after Semedo politely invited him to try his favorite shot.Barça found that he had thrown over 30 minutes of the game and was already losing 1-0. Neither for those changed the script, followed the inane possession without approaching or even looking at the door of Ospina. It was an almost exact reissue of the league game they played in Valencia. And as in Mestalla, the thing could have been worse because after a mess in the area Manolas was about to do the second before the end of the first part.At the start of the second Busquets he saw the card that will prevent him from playing the lap. Mertens retired injured, but Gattuso did not want to speculate despite the advantage and took Milik while Barca entered Arthur on the pitch in an attempt to find a pass that Messi could take to the boot. But it was Busquets who enabled with a great pass a climb of Semedo whose center was topped off by Griezmann, Barça seemed to finally enter the game at 57 minutes.But incomprehensibly, the culé team had to cling to Ter Stegen, who with two stops against Insigne and Callejón avoided the second of Naples, who reacted with blaugrana rage.After those two scares tried to settle in the field, but ended up suffering when Vidal was expelled, another who will not play around and injure Piqué.last_img read more

No high court review of LAUSD decision

first_imgUnder the law, some powers designated to the seven-member board would be shifted to the mayor, the district superintendent and a new council of more than two dozen other mayors of cities within the LAUSD boundaries. It would also give Villaraigosa direct control of the 36 worst-performing schools. The California Supreme Court refused to immediately review a lower court ruling that struck down a state law designed to give Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa authority in the nation’s second-largest school district. The decision by the Supreme Court on Wednesday means the issue will remain before the 2nd District Court of Appeal, which will hear arguments in April. That court is likely to decide the case 30 days to 60 days later. Villaraigosa had sought to bypass the appeals court in hopes of expediting the case and winning a ruling that would allow him to take action on his plans for the Los Angeles Unified School District. The law was challenged by a coalition of parents, students and school officials, and late last year Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs found the law unconstitutional because it interfered with the governing authority of the locally elected school board. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Moorpark College hosts insect incubation

first_imgAs a result, a few hundred are now believed to be living in the wild, with a stock this winter in San Pedro of about 600 dormant pupae. For some time, said Army Major Jason Pike, an entomologist with the Defense Logistics Agency overseeing the project, biologists have wanted another breeding location, such as the one in Moorpark, as a backup. “If we’ve got all our endangered species in one place, a fire could wipe them out,” he said. “This is quite possibly the most endangered butterfly in the world.” Pupae were taken from San Pedro to Moorpark last month, and as spring arrived last week, the butterflies in Moorpark began emerging, breeding and producing eggs. “They are obviously happy. We’ve had lots of breeding and lots of eggs,” Johnson said. “Caterpillars are developing now that will become butterflies next spring.” Some of the butterflies will be taken to San Pedro to continue boosting the population there, she said, and some will used for more breeding next year in Moorpark. “I’m ecstatic,” Johnson said of the results so far. “I was a big ball of worry.” Travis Longcore, science director of the Urban Wildlands Group, said experiments are under way in Moorpark that will help refine the breeding techniques. “We couldn’t do this without the dedication of the students,” he said. What the students are learning from the butterflies might help some of them go on to help other endangered species, especially other endangered butterflies. “It’s very clear a lot of people are looking out for these little guys,” Longcore said. “We couldn’t have this number of butterflies without a lot of hands-on care.” eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The late winter’s dry, warm weather has presented a challenge because the butterflies need sun but can’t get too hot, she said. “We have really been fighting the hot, dry weather,” she said. “We have a tarp up, a swamp cooler and we are feeding the butterflies by hand twice a day.” At Moorpark, the butterfly rescue effort is housed at America’s Teaching Zoo, where students are trained for the college’s Exotic Animal Training and Management program. The Palos Verdes blue butterfly is one of the most endangered in the world and was actually feared extinct after it had not been seen for more than 10 years. But it was rediscovered in 1994 feeding on locoweed and deerweed at the Department of Defense Fuel Support Point in San Pedro. In 1994, there were only about 75 believed in existence, and since then biologists have been working with the Navy and the federal Defense Logistics Agency to help the butterfly’s population recover. MOORPARK With spring here, an effort to save one of the rarest butterflies in the world is getting a boost at Moorpark College, where students, faculty and other supporters are rallying to help the new butterfly breeding program. “The females have been laying eggs for about two weeks now,” said Jana Johnson, a part-time member of the biology faculty and a contract biologist for the Urban Wildlands Group, which is coordinating the rescue effort. So far, the effort to save the Palos Verdes blue butterfly has been successful because so many people are helping, Johnson said, noting that 18 people are working on the project. last_img read more

first_imgA TD today praised Gardai for catching an ‘idiot’ boy racer who drove like a nutter on a packed Donegal beach.Deputy Thomas Pringle said officers who caught Gerard Maguire were ‘superb’ – and he praised a judge who banned Maguire from driving for a year.The 18-year-old from Roscor, Belleek in Co Fermanagh, was among a number of boy racers who frightened families on Rossnowlagh beach last month, as reported by donegaldaily.com. Judge Mary Devins described his driving as ‘horrendous’The Fermanagh man was banned for what Judge Mary Devins called “horrendous driving” and said she had to ban him from driving so that the ‘next idiot’ didn’t also drive like that.Inspector Sylvie Henry said at Ballyshannon District Court that there was a practice of dangerous driving on the beach which would “have to be stamped out.” Maguire was banned for a year and fined €200.Today Deputy Pringle had good words for gardai and the judge. “This has been a major problem and I want to congratulate gardai for bringing this man to justice so quickly.“I am also delighted that he has been banned. We need to send a message out that our beaches and our roads cannot be used in this way, especially coming up to the summer,” he said.PRAISE FOR GARDAI AND JUDGE AFTER ‘IDIOT’ BEACH BOYRACER CAUGHT was last modified: May 7th, 2011 by gregShare 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:boy racer bannedrossnowlagh beachThomas Pringlelast_img read more


first_imgTHIS is some of the huge haul of cannabis recovered by Gardai after they busted a drugs factory in Buncrana.The haul, which was found in a specially-modified house on the outskirts of the town, is estimated to be worth at least €200,000. Three men, all foreign nationals, were arrested when Gardai stopped a car and then a van at a routine checkpoint in Burnfoot.A subsequent investigation led Gardai to the house which had been turned into a drug factory.It had been especially wired and ventilated to help the quick cultivation of t the plants which were then destined to be sold on the open drugs market.The drugs were put on display yesterday at Buncrana Garda Station. A sample of the drugs will be kept for any future court case while the rest will be destroyed at a secure location believed to be in the Midlands.The raid is the latest in a series of investigations which have uncovered similar drug factories in normal houses in St.Johnston, Carrigans, Stranorlar an now Bunacrana.Supt Kevin English of Buncrana Garda Station appealed to the public to remain vigilant for anyone behaving suspiciously.“This was especially adapted by technicians to cultivate these plants. From the outside this house looked like any other.“We would ask the public to remain vigilant and if they suspect anything suspicious to contact the Gardai immediately and we will take it from there,” he said.Ends REVEALED: THE HUGE DRUGS HAUL FOUND BY GARDAI IN BUNCRANA DRUG FACTORY was last modified: May 20th, 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:buncranacannabisdrug factorylast_img read more
