Rome asks for Peter

first_imgThe Spaniard ends contract in June, but Chelsea does not let him out easily and the clubs did not find an economic agreement. In recent weeks, they also asked about the ambitious canary Vissel Kobe Japanese the Inter Miami and the New York City FC. Rome is very close to announce the signing of Carles Pérez (which will be transferred without repurchase option, but with the right of first refusal for Barça), although its directive continues looking for reinforcements for the front. In recent days, the Giallorossi have contacted with Chelsea by Pedro, which is considering a change of air.The exazulgrana he has barely started four times in this Premier League and I would not see with bad eyes an adventure in the Serie A. In Italy they affirm that the arrival of Carles would not exclude another incorporation, although according to AS the Pedro option could know, at the moment, it seems complicated For the capitals.last_img read more

Today marks the 96th anniversary of the first soccer game played by Alavés in Mendizorroza

first_imgThe Sport’s Friends (predecessor of Deportivo Alavés himself) had already played matches in the same location but the terrain was practically a wheat field. Vitoria it had barely 30,000 inhabitants and the land was owned by Manuel Cobo. The benefactors of the project to create a soccer field in good condition were Felix Alfaro, José Gabriel Guinea and Federico del Campo, in charge of looking for patrons to put the idea on its feet. The works started in 1923 and closed a few months later. The celebrations of San Prudencio they served as the perfect setting for two historic games.And is that Alavés played his first commitment, as a club, on April 28 and faced the Cuenca-27 Infantry Regiment, who was stationed in the city and who had helped since the early 20s to condition the area. That eleven alavesista was formed by Martinez in goal, Millán and Fives behind Castresana, Juanin and Baroja as means and Valero, Abellán, Pérez Muga, Juan and Bridge in the front. The albiazules won 3-1 and laid the first stone in their stadium to then star in a glorious journey. Pérez Muga got two goals and Juanín the third. Alavés’ last match at Mendi was on March 6 against Valencia. Then the break came. San Prudencio (holy meon as tradition says because it always rains) is celebrated with a pilgrimage every April 28. It is customary to eat snails with perretxikos and the saint is venerated days before doing the same with the provincial patron saint in his sanctuary, that of the Virgin of Estíbaliz. This Monday would have been the day of the retreta, the tamborrada, the dinners in the societies and the longest night of the year along with that of the Bajada de Celedón and the txupinazo of all the days of August 4.Waiting for what happens then – the Sanfermines have already been postponed – the San Prudencio 2020 will be lived from the confinement. But also remembering important ephemeris like 96 years of celebrating Alavés’ first game as a team in Mendizorroza. On the 27th the inauguration itself had taken place with the blessing of the priest of San Miguel, Faustino Mendieta, a foot race, a cycling race and a collision between a team from the province (with some players from the Alaves) and the Tomatoes from Deusto. The final result was 2-0 favorable for the local team.last_img read more

High school uses college T-shirts to inspire and motivate students

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WHITTIER – Every other Wednesday at a local continuation high school, the idea of going to college is on the minds – and bodies – of students once on the verge of giving up and dropping out. On College T-Shirt Day, Frontier High School students, as well as teachers and staff, sport colorful T-shirts with the logos of their favorite colleges and universities. Call it visual motivation. “You see these T-shirts and it makes you want to say, `Oh, OK, I’m going to college,”‘ said Myesha Taylor, 17, a senior. That’s why Frontier administrators started College T-Shirt Day at the beginning of the school year. At first, the T-shirts were handed out as rewards to the school’s top achievers. But the program soon caught on throughout the campus. And so has the idea of education after high school, said Sunshine Zuniga, Frontier’s alternative outreach education consultant. “About 80 percent of our graduates now are on the path to go to a community college, trade school, specialty school or a four-year university,” Zuniga said. “We want to make sure that once they transfer out of here that they have a plan for what they want to do. And most of them are headed for some form of higher education.” College T-Shirt Day is a reminder of the possibilities that lay ahead, Zuniga said. “Without (the T-shirt day), I wouldn’t have even thought about college,” said junior Tiffany Montanez, who said she has plans to attend Rio Hondo College and then transfer to USC. Taylor agreed. She believes people have a wrong perception of continuation school students as being focused solely on getting their high school diplomas. “We’re the same as other high school kids, except we messed up once and came here,” said Taylor. “But now, because we’re at Frontier, we have the opportunity to do better for ourselves, even after graduation.” (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051last_img

Mars Rover Lands

first_imgFrom the scene of news at Jet Propulsion LaboratoryAt 8:35 p.m. Pacific Time Saturday, January 3, signal was lost as a large set of air bags bounced on the surface of Mars.  After several nail-biting minutes, signal was reacquired by two Earth stations, indicating that the Mars Exploration Rover “Spirit” had survived the heat of re-entry and 30 bounces on the surface – some as high as a four-story building – and was alive and well.  The spirit of the crowds at JPL went from tense silence to back-slapping, hand-clapping celebration.  Luckily, the spacecraft landed base-petal down, a one-in-four chance, providing good opportunity for pictures and data.    The joy of the successful landing was surpassed less than three hours later, at 11:33 p.m., when engineering data and the first pictures beamed up to Mars Odyssey and relayed to Earth arrived at mission control.  The rover was not only healthy; it was in super shape.  “It’s not supposed to work this well – we were caught off guard” – “far exceeded expectations” – and “this is incredible!” are just samples of the exuberance in the control room as needle-sharp images of the rover and its surroundings, all the way to the horizon, arrived in rapid-fire succession on the screens.    Some very interesting news over the next few weeks should now be forthcoming from Gusev Crater, a location on Mars that looks like it was once a large lake 100 miles across after a canyon from the south cut through the crater wall and drained into it.  It may help settle once for all whether standing water ever existed on Mars for any significant period of time.  Even with Mars Global Surveyor and 2001 Mars Odyssey having orbited for years now, scientists have debated over conflicting evidence.    JPL is now ‘two for two’ (see next headline) in what may be the biggest year yet for planetary science.  The twin rover “Opportunity” lands in three weeks, on January 24.  Cassini is fast approaching Saturn for the July 1 start of its five-year orbital tour, which Science said yesterday may provide “the most spectacular news” of the year for plantary science.  The number of current missions and upcoming missions makes 2004 a golden age of discovery in space.The landing of rover Spirit tonight was a phenomenal achievement by many talented and hard-working people.  It is no less exciting than great journeys of exploration from history, such as the Lewis and Clark expedition (celebrating its 200th anniversary this year).  Getting new data from a new terra incognita on another world takes our mind for a moment off war and terrorism, evil and folly.  All who gave the world this moment of wonder deserve international kudos.    What you probably won’t hear on the news, amid all the storytelling about the possibility of life on Mars (just because there might have been water), are the Christian testimonies.  A fair number of the scientists and engineers on the Mars project teams at JPL, some in high places, are Christians and creationists.  Most just quietly go about their work contributing to the excellent success of these missions.  As you listen to the news, keep in mind that the official spokespeople may not represent the views of everyone on the team.    Watch for the latest Mars headlines, now that we are on the surface.  Congratulations also to the European orbiter Mars Express, and best wishes for recovery of the lost British lander Beagle 2.  (We don’t think they will find any finches, though.)(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
