first_imgThis year we saw one of the most amazing Champions League quarter-finals in its long history. Two old foes and two clubs that haven’t reached this stage in a while were in the draw. What was the outcome?Bayern Munich – Real Madrid Well, those old foes meet again. It’s the 7th time that Bayern and Real will face each other in a Champions League semi-final. The last time was in 2017, when Real Madrid scored three times in extra time to advance to the final. Bayern didn’t dominate Sevilla as many anticipated it will, but it calmly and routinely disposed of a tricky opponent. You all know Real Madrid’s story by now. Juventus did the unimaginable by scoring three goals at Santiago Bernabeu, but a controversial penalty call in injury time converted by Ronaldo sent Los Blancos to this semi-final.The Germans will be keen to avenge their last two semi-final eliminations. With the Bundesliga title wrapped up, they’ll have all the time in the world to prepare and with Jupp Heynckes at the helm, they’ll have all the confidence in the world to advance. This is the first real threat they’ll face in this season’s knockout rounds. My apologies to Besiktas and Sevilla, but they are not Real Madrid. Zidane’s men had a much tougher road here, having had to play PSG and Juventus. Credit needs to be given where credit is due and Real Madrid really stepped up when it counted. Many pundits had written them off after a bad first half of the season, but Madrid’s players led by Cristiano Ronaldo raised to the occasion and showed why they’re the defending back-to-back champions. I don’t think Bayern has shown its true colors yet and will need to be at its best in order to reach the final. It is a daunting task, but one that the Bavarians are capable of pulling off. The encounters between these two are always mesmerizing affairs. I don’t think there’s a single football fanatic who’s not excited to see them face each other again.Liverpool – Roma Roma have played one Champions League final to date and guess what? It was against Liverpool. It happened in 1984 and The Reds won on penalty kicks. So, there’s a little bit of history between the two. Also, you remember that Mohamed Salah used to play for the Italians. That’s where Liverpool bought him from last summer. Both teams deserve to be here with special performances that saw them eliminate two clubs that some thought were destined to meet in the final – Manchester City and Barcelona. Roma’s comeback in particular, is one for the history books.Liverpool has a rich history that totals ten Champions League/European Cup semi-finals (including this one). The Reds have reached the final in seven of the other nine attempts. The last time they played in a final was 2007, when they lost to Chelsea and the last time they won the competition was in 2005 in that memorable final versus AC Milan. Then, they did something similar to what Juventus and Roma did in the quarter-finals by overcoming a 3-0 deficit (on their way to a penalty kick victory). Roma’s presence here is absolutely shocking. Di Francesco’s men did give signs of their ability to surprise when they finished atop a group that involved Chelsea and Atletico Madrid. They’ll be in for another uphill battle against the most prolific front trio in European football. I still give the advantage to Liverpool, mostly because Jurgen Klopp has been here and done it, meaning reached the final (with Borussia Dortmund in 2013).The first matches are going to be played on April 24/25, while the second legs will take place on May 1/2.last_img read more

first_imgOn a rainy Sunday afternoon, a dramatic 92’ equalizer by Andrea Masiello is how a game with 12 yellow and 2 red cards between Atalanta and Milan ended.Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini sent the same lineup that drew 1-1 at Lazio last weekend. There was only change, as Caldara replaced Palomino at the back. 19-year-old Musa Barrow was leading the attack, accompanied by shadow striker Alejandro Gomez. AC Milan’s last fixture was a painful 4-0 loss in the Italian cup final against Juventus. Gennaro Gattuso decided to switch his center forward, giving the advantage to Nikola Kalinic over Patrick Cutrone. There were two other changes. Lucas Biglia was back from injury and started in the midfield instead of Manuel Locatelli, whereas experienced Ignazio Abate was the right back, as youngster Davide Calabria was left on the bench.Rain was pouring down in Atalanta as referee Marco Guida blew the opening whistle. Masiello and Abate were the recipients of the first yellow cards in the game in the 13th and 17th minute, respectively. Much like in the Coppa Italia final against Juventus, Milan was the team that was forcing the issue and dictating play, yet had nothing to show for it. The players were doing their best not to allow the rain to affect them, but it was falling so heavily that it was impossible to ignore it. Everyone on the pitch was soaking wet.The teams were even opponents during the second part of the first half. There was a certain amount of tension because of a couple of controversial decisions by the referee and several reckless fouls. Atalanta was putting more and more pressure on the visitors as the half was nearing its conclusion. In the 41st minute, Gasperini’s men had three successive attempts at goal from inside Milan’s box and they were all blocked. It was a threatening situation. We went into the half-time break goalless.Rumour: Monaco have expressed an interest in Kessie George Patchias – August 22, 2019 Monaco has asked AC Milan about the availability of Kessie.According to Football-Italia.net, Monaco has opened talks with AC Milan, with a view to signing Franck…Ricardo Montolivo replaced Lucas Biglia at the half. It’s quite possible that an unfortunate knee-in-the-back challenge by Gomez late in the first half was the reason why. Atalanta had by far the clearest chance of the game in the 53rd minute. Cristante got his head on a corner kick. Donnarumma made the save, but the ball came to Mattia Caldara, who wasn’t ready for it and reacted poorly, missing the net from two meters out. Experienced Slovenian international Josip Ilicic came in to replace Musa Barrow a minute after that. Cristante was everywhere during the opening 10 minutes of the second period.A wonderful strike by Atalanta’s own Franck Kessie gave AC Milan the lead 60 minutes into the contest. What a bomb! Atalanta seemed to be getting closer to a goal when Milan scored. Then, things went horribly wrong for the home side when center back Rafael Toloi was sent off in the 64th minute. His initial challenge earned him one yellow card and his sarcastic clap of hands after the decision earned him an immediate second. Cristante had one more shot at scoring before being lifted from the pitch so 22-year-old Nicolas Haas can come on in the 71st minute.The card-happy referee kept awarding bookings and in the 75th minute he reduced Milan to 10 men as well. It was actually the right decision, since Montolivo’s two-footed challenge was very dangerous, irresponsible, illegal and well-deserving of a straight red. Atalanta suddenly received an opportunity to get back into a game that it was unjustifiably losing anyway. And then it happened. 90 seconds into injury time, Andrea Masiello was at the end of a lovely cross by Ilicic. He headed the ball and Donnarumma looked to have his hands on it, but didn’t manage to keep it out. Another poor reaction by Milan’s goalkeeper, as it was the case in the cup final. It was a huge goal for Atalanta, as it dramatically increases its chances of Europa League qualification.last_img read more

I think Bremen have a very realistic chance to get to the semi-finals.”“I remember I got taken off a little early and so I was a bit annoyed, especially as it was against my former club. But despite everything, we won the final 3-1 and I had scored a goal. It was also my first trophy,” he said about the DFB-Pokal Final in 1994.“Everyone knows we had an extraordinarily good relationship. Otto allowed me to have a lot of freedom and it was fantastic for him to work so well with the players. He was worth gold dust for Werder Bremen.

first_img PNP and PDM to unite; Premier says UK challenging TCI to ‘bring it on’ Commonwealth Scholarship for UK studies now available Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Feb 2015 – At least one British Overseas Territory is reacting this weekend to the threat from the UK Labour Party Leader, Ed Miliband. Miliband said he is issuing letters to all territories which are as he put it, sheltering tax dodgers in our so called, tax havens. Miliband in a news report names The Turks and Caicos and puts our country on alert to receive that warning letter soon and says we have six months to comply before he sends in the hound dogs. Here is a direct quote from the feisty Miliband: “Billions of pounds is being siphoned off into tax havens where our authorities cannot discover even the true ownership of firms registered there, let alone the scale of wealth hidden away.” The story goes on to say that despite PM David Cameron’s directives for the OTs to be more transparent, we are resisting. But that is not the report given by Cameron when Overseas Territories met on Downing Street in 2013; the reports were that there was agreement to ‘clampdown’ and according to the PNP Administration, the Governor’s Office, the Financial Services Commission and the Attorney General’s Office, the Turks and Caicos for example is regularly working on compliance and treaties for greater openness. Bermuda issued reaction last night and its coming from the top, PM Michael Dunkley is standing up for his territory which he labeled as the international leader in company registration with: “We would also remind Mr. Miliband of Bermuda’s strategic economic contribution to the UK, which includes direct and indirect employment in the UK of 100,000 people, as well as our role as a global hub for the reinsurance and insurance industries, providing the critical underwriting required for damage arising from natural disasters and terrorist events.” The Conservative Party of the UK basically warn that Miliband is all talk, no action.

It is very important,” Dr. Tufton said.  He was delivering the keynote address at the official opening of the Drug Serv Pharmacy at the Kitson Town Health Centre in St. Catherine on Wednesday (November 23).Dr. Tufton noted that the family doctor, obstetrician or certified midwife at the clinic provides expectant mothers with competent care from pregnancy to birth that takes into account their particular health needs.last_img read more

Yet, there is still a stigma among millions of people, even here in California.“The old stereotype of ripping bong hits and running for the potato chips is a thing of the past,” said Kalena Pinuelas of MJ Tours California. “I have PTSD from the military and tried all kinds of things, Antidepressants, anti-anxiety, but they have all been replaced by cannabis products.”She believes in medical benefits so much, she started a company to let everyone else know.MJ Tours is like a party bus, only not. Instead of Cheech and Chong, this is more like Geeks and Scientists.“This tour will open people’s eyes. It’s not like Reefer Madness. This is real science for people who have real medical problems,” said Ed Shafer of Dana Point. “I have trouble sleeping, anxiety. I’ve tried pills for years, but they’ve been replaced by cannabis.”Shafer has a lot of company. Once people get past the stigma of marijuana, it changes lives.“I used to take all kinds of pills, pain pills, opiates. No more. Now I just smoke a little before bed, it’s replaced all the pills in my medicine cabinet,” Shafer said.Even though it’s been legal for 20-years, the testing has reached all-time highs, no pun intended.“Testing is moving at lightning speed,” said Josh Swider of INFINITE-CAL Laboratories. “We test for everything from pesticides to THC content, to CBD content.”Now, everything you see in a pot shop is tested and verified, from seed to sale.They call it “track and trace.” Come July, every single product will be tested and retested before it hits the store shelves.

first_imgRail closures from Oceanside to San Diego scheduled this weekend SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Rail service along the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo rail corridor will again be suspended Saturday through 5 a.m. Monday from Oceanside to San Diego for track and signal improvements, according to the San Diego Association of Governments.The scheduled rail work in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Carlsbad and San Diego is the second of two weekend-long closures for track and signal improvements along the LOSSAN corridor. Rail service was also suspended from Oct. 13 to Oct. 15. Rail service for the four railroads affected by the closures — the North County Transit District, Metrolink, Amtrak and freight line BNSF — is expected to resume Monday for morning commute hours, albeit with possible delays.Track crews in Cardiff-by-the-Sea will replace rail ties as part of a double-tracking project to add a second rail track between Cardiff-by-the-Sea to the San Elijo Lagoon. Work crews connected the second line to the existing track last month. Workers will also update the rail signals at the Chesterfield Drive grade crossing.Crews in Carlsbad plan to prepare the NCTD Coaster Poinsettia Station for a new western alignment of the existing track as well as move existing rail signals at the station to more optimal locations. The $33.7 million Poinsettia Station Improvements Project “will lengthen and elevate passenger platforms, install a fence between the tracks within the station, relocate a section of the existing tracks, and replace the existing at-grade rail crossings with an undercrossing featuring stairways and ADA compliance ramps on both sides of the tracks,” according to SANDAG, which expects the project to be completed in 2020.Crews in San Diego will work on improvements to the San Diego River Bridge and structures along the Elvira to Morena Double Track Project. In addition, NCTD crews and San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System will make improvements to track crossings at the Old Town Transit Center.The rail work is part of SANDAG’s Build NCC (North Coast Corridor) program, a 40-year, $700 million effort to repair and expand vehicle and rail transportation infrastructure throughout San Diego County. SANDAG officials and work crews expect to finish this weekend’s projects between 2019 and 2020.
