0Shares0000Lionel Messi scored twice for Barcelona on the opening weekend © AFP / LLUIS GENEMADRID, Spain, Aug 24 – The prospect of a player strike hangs over Spanish football heading into the second week of the season, as Barcelona and Real Madrid look to build on winning starts to the campaign.La Liga bosses dropped a bombshell on the eve of the campaign when they announced their intention to stage top-flight matches in the United States, starting from this season. However, a move announced as part of attempts to improve the Spanish league’s global popularity has this week been attacked by the country’s players union, AFE.“Footballers are not for sale. We don’t only think about money,” said AFE president David Aganzo, once a striker on Madrid’s books.The union say they hope to persuade league chiefs to change their minds at a meeting next month, with strike action promised if they do not get the outcome they are hoping for.“We are worried for supporters. We see football in a different way. Going to the United States is madness,” Aganzo added.The AFE have also said that match scheduling is a concern, with Valencia’s opening weekend draw with Atletico Madrid one of two games played on Monday night.Matches that do not finish until after midnight are also a feature of the start of the new season, with champions Barcelona’s match at Valladolid one such game this weekend.– Messi in fine fettle already –Ernesto Valverde’s side face their newly promoted opponents fresh from starting their title defence by beating Alaves 3-0 at the Camp Nou, with Lionel Messi scoring a brace, including a superb free-kick.“Finding a way to stop Messi is practically impossible,” said Valladolid coach Sergio Gonzalez.“We will try to ensure that he touches the ball as little as possible. That is great in theory, but the important thing is to stay focused.”While Messi looked as brilliant as ever against Alaves, Real began life in La Liga without Cristiano Ronaldo by beating Getafe 2-0.For now, the two great individuals of the last decade continue to be compared with one another, even with Ronaldo having left for Juventus.“People rarely mention one without mentioning the other,” Valverde said in an interview with Barcelona club media.“A lot of people are interested, me too, to see how it will affect Real Madrid’s football and what they might do in the transfer market, and also knowing that Ronaldo is at another club and what that might mean for La Liga and the Champions League too.”– Courtois awaits debut –Will Thibaut Courtois make his Real Madrid debut in Girona? © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOThe early signs for Real are that Gareth Bale will step forward, after he scored one goal and made another against Getafe to give new coach Julen Lopetegui his first win at the helm.The European champions go to Catalonia on Sunday night to face Girona — who beat them in this fixture last season — with Thibaut Courtois still waiting to make his debut in goal following his arrival from Chelsea.Atletico have been tipped to make a serious push for the title this season, and they started with a 1-1 draw at Valencia, despite Angel Correa giving them the lead.Diego Simeone’s side have a derby at home to newly-promoted Rayo Vallecano on Saturday evening and come into the game with winger Vitolo having been ruled out for several weeks with a knee injury.Rayo look set to welcome back striker Raul de Tomas on loan from Real Madrid, with media reports saying he has agreed to return to the club for whom he netted 24 times on loan during their run to promotion last season.Fixtures (all times GMT)FridayGetafe v Eibar (1815), Leganes v Real Sociedad (2015)SaturdayAlaves v Betis (1615), Atletico Madrid v Rayo Vallecano (1815), Valladolid v Barcelona (2015)SundayEspanyol v Valencia (1615), Girona v Real Madrid, Sevilla v Villarreal (both 2015)MondayLevante v Celta Vigo (1815), Athletic Bilbao v Huesca (2000)0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)
“Her son was a sweet kid when they moved in, but he fell in with the wrong crowd,” said Julie Del Carmen, who has lived across the street from the family for the past six years. “He was always friendly enough, but as he got older, you could tell he’d gotten more into delinquency.” Loud fights This isn’t the first time Jesse Winnick has run afoul of the law. He pleaded no contest in July to a misdemeanor charge of making criminal threats, according to court records. Del Carmen saw sheriff’s deputies respond to the house he shared with his mother several times to settle loud, fierce disputes. His facebook.com page features three photos – two picturing him as a pale, intense-looking man with a shaved head and six-pack abs. He describes his passion for Scrabble at 3 a.m. Hadas Winnick, who was divorced, never gave a hint of any problems brewing at home to her colleagues at Canoga Park High, speaking proudly of her daughter but generally leaving her son out of the conversation. Her friends described the bespectacled teacher as a fiercely dedicated algebra instructor who built her life around her freshman and sophomore students. The 30-year teacher came to the campus on Topanga Canyon Boulevard three years ago after a stint at Mulholland Middle School and wrote “GRF XRSZ,” a textbook to help students visualize math problems. “She stayed late and worked hard,” Principal Pam Hamashita said. “She was here on Saturdays; she was very dedicated to her career. … People are in shock right now.” Dedicated teacher While Winnick’s tough-love approach wasn’t always appreciated by her pupils, colleague Vandana Kumar said, she was extremely dedicated and passionate about math. The two shared many students and would often chat between classes. Kumar frequently joked with Winnick about her impressive work ethic. When she received word of her friend’s death Wednesday morning, she broke into tears. “I’m certain that it is really going to impact the students,” she said. “They don’t know what they’re missing. … She taught math the way it was meant to be taught. Maybe she was old-school. … It’s going to be a loss for Canoga Park.” It’s a loss already felt by 15-year-old Martesha Green, who had Winnick twice as a teacher. After school let out Wednesday, she went across the street and reflected about the hard-edged but big-hearted woman who’d instructed her. “I’m sad, I’m very sad about the loss of my teacher,” Green said. “She was a good person. She was very unique. Inside the classroom, the word for her was precise. Outside the classroom, she was the bomb. “She made me. She pushed me to press forward and to do my very best.” Students remember Hamashita, who called on extra counselors Wednesday to help the grieving students and faculty members, led the emotional student body in a writing exercise to share feelings and memories of Winnick. Breana Wiles posted her poem, “A dedicated teacher passes on: in loving memory of Mrs. Winnick,” on the school’s Web site. “Mrs. Winnick, although some of us did not know you/ Hearing of your passing makes us all feel blue,” she wrote. “I do not understand why how someone could do such a thing/ But we sometimes don’t know what life can bring.” Neighbors mirrored Wiles’ sense of bewilderment. Crime rarely comes to Calabasas; homicide is almost unheard of. As word spread through town that the chatty, enthusiastic Winnick was dead, residents struggled to reconcile her violent end with her vibrant life. “It’s been 10 years, so there’s a lot of talk about it,” Mayor James Bozajian said of the previous homicide in town. “It’s an unusual occurrence. Any type of violent crime is rare. When you get into this category, the most serious, you get a lot of talk about it.” As sheriff’s homicide investigators and uniformed deputies cleared the crime scene Wednesday morning, a white-and-blue coroner’s van pulled away. The idea that a beloved neighbor was dead, with her son as the prime suspect, was too much to take for one woman. She wiped tears from her eyes and caught her breath as she looked at the beige, stucco home where Winnick lived and died. “All I can say is she loved him so much,” said the woman, who declined to give her name, about Winnick’s son. “She loved him too much, I guess. This was such a violent end.” Staff Writers Rick Coca and Dana Bartholomew contributed to this report. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3738160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! CALABASAS – Hadas Winnick lived and taught with passion, preaching the value of math to teenagers but trying to save her greatest life lessons for her troubled son, Jesse. He seemed like a friendly guy, neighbors recalled, but hung out with troublemakers. No matter how hard his mother tried to straighten him out, giving him chance after chance, he kept letting her down. Late Tuesday night, he allegedly stabbed the 55-year-old Canoga Park High School teacher to death with a butcher knife inside their Calabasas home. He plunged the blade repeatedly into his mother’s chest, officials said, then called his sister, Amy, to confess. “He told her she shouldn’t come home because he killed Mom,” Lt. Gil Carrillo of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Jesse told Amy. His sister, who declined to comment, called police about 11 p.m. Tuesday to report the slaying in the affluent, hillside community. It has seen just three homicides since its incorporation in 1991, most recently a decade ago. Deputies rushed to the well-kept home in the 3800 block of Declaration Avenue, discovered Winnick’s bloody body and noticed that both her car and 25-year-old son were missing. Near midnight, the personal trainer and pharmaceutical distributor – at least according to his page on facebook.com – ditched his mom’s car and jumped into a 2007 Range Rover driven by an unidentified man, police said. Los Angeles police and sheriff’s deputies quickly pulled the SUV over near Ventura Boulevard and De Soto Avenue. They found Winnick cowering in the back. It took 30 minutes to coax him out, but police say the 5-foot-5, 180-pound man was arrested without a fight. Deputies booked him at the Lost Hills sheriff’s station on suspicion of murder early Wednesday.
4 Germany take part in 19th World Cup this summer. talkSPORT.com deliver an in-depth look at the Group F nation…MANAGERJoachim Low is one of the longest-standing coaches on the international stage, having been at the German helm since 2006. And why would they want anyone else?The German has finished in the top four in every major competition in charge of the national side and lifted the World Cup in 2014.He always has an abundance of quality to choose from and remains loyal to his regular starters. But that loyalty will be tested this summer, with several rising stars in Germany knocking on the door of the starting XI.Low used 37 different players in qualifying, more than any other team in Europe. So expect him to rotate his squad and utilise all of its great depth.CAPTAINManuel Neuer has barely played football in over a year, but he has recovered from a broken metatarsal, and Low says the Bayern Munich keeper will be his number one in Russia. 4 He only managed 360 competitive minutes in 2017/18 and Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is ready in reserve, but such is the influence of the German skipper that not selecting him in Russia would be foolish.Neuer has finally returned to full training, and the coach says he has a very good feeling he will make the squad.KEY PLAYERThomas Muller loves the World Cup. At the age of 28, he already has ten goals in the competition, winning the Golden Boot in 2010 and the Silver Boot in 2014.No current player has scored more World Cup goals and there is an added incentive this time: Muller needs seven more to become the highest all-time goalscorer at the tournament, overtaking his compatriot Miroslav Klose on 16.His role is more the creator these days he grabbed 14 assists to eight goals in the Bundesliga this season.Perhaps hell be a little more selfish in Russia with the record in the back of his mind.ONE TO WATCHOne thing Germany do lack is an in-form, experienced striker. Mario Gomez is past his prime, Freiburgs Nils Petersen is unproven on the international stage, and Marco Reus and Muller are more likely to play on the wings. But young Timo Werner could fill the centre-forward void in Russia,While he is only 22, he has over 150 appearances and 47 goals in the German top-flight, first for Stuttgart and more recently for Leipzig.Werner isnt a total stranger to the big occasion, either. He scored three goals in Germanys 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup triumph and went home with the Golden Boot.His emergence on the biggest stage will be worth keeping an eye on this summer.FIXTURESSunday, June 17: Germany v MEXICO (Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow) kick-off 16:00Saturday, June 23: Germany v SWEDEN (Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi) kick-off 19:00Wednesday, June 27: SOUTH KOREA v Germany (Kazan Arena, Kazan) kick-off 15:00KITS RECORD IN QUALIFYINGGermany were unstoppable in qualifying they were the only European side to win all ten matches and equalled the record for goals scored with 43.Thats an average of over four goals per game.

No 2 – Picture of Matt Carthy, Pearse Doherty and John Sheamais O’Fearraigh with Local Farmers in field covered in sand as a result of floodingTD Pearse Doherty and local election candidate John Sheamais O’Fearraigh have with local farmers to assess the damage by recent storms which caused the Ards Sea embankment to breach and resulted in severe and extensive flooding to farmland in the Ards area.Sinn Féin local election candidate O’Fearraigh said he was alarmed to see the extent of the damage caused by the breach of the embankment, which has caused severe hardship to local farmers.“The breach of the embankment has affected 13 local farmers and has caused the flooding of 130 acres of land with a number of acres of forestry also affected. “Due to the breach in the embankment, which occurred in January and measures approximately 80 feet, the local farmers have had their lands repeatedly flooded when high tides have come in.“I am aware that the Officials from the office of public works have visited this site in January after the breach took place, however it remains unclear if the funding has been made available to fully complete the works necessary or when works will commence.“It is of the utmost importance that work commences on this site as soon as possible – with no defence from high tides and repeated flooding of their land local farmers are not in a position to begin work to restore their land and there are also concerns that farmers could lose out on various entitlements if the works are not commenced in the very near future.”He called on Donegal County Council to prioritise this project, which he said affects the livelihood of a number of local farmers, to immediately clarify details of the plans to repair the breach and to consult with local farmers on the repair works needed.
