We must have continuity and these matches will mark the future “, argument.“Abelardo said it, the team must hook people, and I think they did. This hobby never turns its back.

Optimism with De Tomás: start training with the group

After that, the session became behind closed doors. The presence of RdT, however, is contingent on completing this Friday’s training with good feelings and on Saturday, in a session that will take place at noon, do not have pain either.The player was injured last Saturday before Abelardo gave the list of summoned for the match against Sevilla. The Madrid noticed some discomfort in the right adductor that prevented him from going to Sánchez Pizjuán. The tests denied that there was a break, so everything depended on the sensations of the player. Until that meeting, De Tomás accumulated four goals in four LaLiga games. The bitter hangover of Wolverhampton had a main focus on the training of Espanyol in the Sports City. And it had more to do with Sunday’s LaLiga match against Valladolid than with the 4-0 consequences of the round of 16 of the Europa League. Raúl de Tomás has completed the first 15 minutes of training with the rest of his teammates, so tomorrow will pass the last test and there is optimism with his call to travel to the New Zorrilla.last_img read more

US-bound passengers from Guyana to now be screened at T&T airport

first_img… recent MoU suspendedPassengers heading to the United States (US) from Guyana, and who will be transiting in Trinidad and 10Tobago (T&T), will now have to undergo security screening before boarding their flight to the US, the T&T Civil Aviation Authority has announced.This new move blanks the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago, which was established in 2015 to promote a “One-Stop” security arrangement to improve the processing of passengers transferring at Piarco International Airport and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) on Caribbean Airlines flights.According to the T&T Aviation Authority, the direction comes directly from the United States Department of Homeland Security Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which issued an Emergency Amendment, to the aviation security measures applied at the Last Point of Departure (LPD) for flights to the United States.“This Emergency Amendment takes immediate effect. The US TSA Emergency Amendment directs aircraft operators to screen all transfer and transit passengers and their accessible property at the Piarco International Airport as the LPD when travelling to the United States, prior to boarding the aircraft,” the Aviation Authority said on Tuesday.Consequently, passengers originating from Guyana and other destinations transferring at the Piarco International Airport to the United States must undergo security screening together with their accessible property. It said the Emergency Amendment issued by the United States Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration supersedes the Memorandum of Understanding established between Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago for the Mutual Recognition of Aviation Security Measures, which allowed passengers originating from Guyana and transferring at Piarco International Airport, Trinidad, to continue their journey without undergoing screening.“To ensure aircraft operators comply with the United States TSA Emergency Amendment to screen all transfer passengers and their accessible at the Piarco International Airport as the Last Point of Departure into the United States, the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority in collaboration with the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has suspended the MOU between Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago,” the Trinidad agency said.The suspension is effective immediately. The Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority (TTCAA) said it regrets any inconvenience to passengers travelling from Guyana and transferring at the Piarco International Airport, which may have been caused by the suspension of the MoU as a result of the TSA Emergency Amendment.It assured that it will continue to collaborate with the United States Department of Homeland Security TSA and the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority with a view to improving the security processing of passengers originating from Guyana and transferring at the Piarco International Airport to the United States.last_img read more

Elisabeth Harper rehired at Foreign Affairs Ministry

first_img…her “unique skills” an asset – GreenidgeThe coalition Government has rehired former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Prime Ministerial Candidate, Ambassador Elisabeth Harper to assist the Foreign Affairs Ministry with her “unique skills”.Elisabeth HarperAmbassador Harper, a career diplomat, was the Director General of the Foreign Affairs Ministry before stepping down last year to run alongside PPP/C Presidential Candidate Donald Ramotar for the 2015 General and Regional Elections.According to Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge at the Ministry’s year-end press briefing on Thursday, Ambassador Harper was retained by the Ministry to work in the areas of documentation and border issues, which he said she has “unique skills” in.The Minister noted that as Director General and a staffer within the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Harper had worked very closely on the matters pertaining to sovereignty, a fact they have already begun capitalising on.“Mrs Harper has been retained by the Ministry latterly to work with us in a couple of areas in which she has rather unique skills and… because of the delicacy of (sovereignty), we have been utilising the skills of Mrs Harper to assist us in that area and that is ongoing; it will continue,” the Minister stated.Moreover, Greenidge went on to say that given the high staff turnover at the Ministry, coupled with difficulties in execution of duties, the Ministry is looking to retain the institutional knowledge of past employees such as the former Director General.“In this Ministry, I’ll be able to point to you many rooms that have documents and few people in here, if any, can tell you what the documents are. On that side, we try to utilise the knowledge of those who have worked here in the past,” he explained. Since the defeat of the PPP/C at last year’s elections, Ambassador Harper had vanished from the limelight and was rarely, if at all, seen at any of the now Opposition’s events.Ambassador Harper had held the post of Director General at the Foreign Affairs Ministry since 2001. She was also an Ambassador to the Caribbean Community (Caricom) at her time of retirement.Harper, who is a recipient of the Golden Achievement Award, began her career at the Foreign Affairs Ministry in 1976 as a Registry Clerk and worked her way up to hold the title of Director General.She had previously served as Director of the Department of the Americas and Asia at the Foreign Affairs Ministry from 1996 to 2001; a consular officer at the Guyana High Commission in London from 1991 to 1995, and Head of the Frontier Division from 1990 to 1991.Described as a distinguished public servant, Harper has been a member of Guyana’s delegation to various meetings of Caricom, the Latin American Economic System, the Association of Caribbean States, United Nations, the Commonwealth and the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), among others.Harper had also served in several other positions, including Ambassador to Caricom (2003 to 2015); Non-resident High Commissioner to Trinidad and Tobago (2003-2015); Non-resident High Commissioner to Barbados (2004-2015); Non-resident High Commissioner to Grenada (2006-2015) and Non-resident High Commissioner to St Kitts and Nevis.last_img read more

Costa sent off after scoring Atletico winner

first_imgThe 2-0 win, in which France star Antoine Griezmann set up the opener for Angel Correa on 18 minutes, lifts Atletico into second, six points behind Barcelona who play Levante on Sunday.Atletico stay two points clear of third-placed Valencia, who are on 37 points after coming back from an early deficit to beat Girona 2-1 thanks to a first-half Janos Ramalho own goal and Daniel Parejo’s penalty three minutes after the break.Costa had been lively the whole match and received a yellow card for a foul in the 62nd minute. Five minutes later he met a low cross to put his side 2-0 up and immediately earned a second yellow for leaping into the stands to celebrate with fans.The brooding striker looked totally perplexed by the decision but his borderline style of play may inject some much needed bite to the Atletico forward line.“His presence gives us speed and directness. And he frightens opponents too,” said Atletico Coach Diego Simeone after the game.“The referee was unable to consider the emotional aspect (of Costa’s behaviour), the rules are the rules,” he said.Simeone’s side looked as hard to beat as ever — with just eight goals conceded and one defeat in 18 league games — but they have scored only 27 with Griezmann struggling to find the net, hitting just five league goals so far.Atletico haven’t won La Liga since Costa left for London, where he won two Premier League titles in three years after rifling the Madrid club to their tenth league championship with 27 goals.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa (L) is shown a red card after celebrating a goal during the Spanish league match against Getafe © AFP / OSCAR DEL POZOMadrid, Spain, Jan 6 – Atletico Madrid unleashed Diego Costa in La Liga on Saturday and the controversial centre-forward scored the winner before being sent off in a 2-0 home win over regional rivals Getafe.Atletico’s transfer ban ended last week and Costa was playing his first league game since rejoining the Spanish club from Chelsea. last_img read more
