Beautiful and Llorente, before the opportunity to claim

first_imgAtlético will start the Copa del Rey against Cultural Leonesa with many new features in its eleven. The Cholo will give rest to players of the transcendence of Oblak, Thomas and Morata and others like Adam, Hermoso, Manu Sánchez and Marcos Llorente They will be in the starting lineup. An opportunity to claim and ask for more minutes, mainly in the case of the center and the pivot, since the goal is non-negotiable and in the case of Manu Sánchez is a player of Atleti B. Mario Hermoso accumulated minutes and minutes during the injuries of Savic and Giménez, forming a great couple with Felipe, same couple apparently that in the duel against the Cultural. However, since the return of Montenegrin and the short return of Giménez, who has fallen back injured, Beautiful has disappeared from the team. His ten consecutive full matches were followed by eight short minutes before Osasuna, already with Giménez in the eleven. It was on December 14 and since then he has not had participation again. And that he had played with a great role when he had to be the protagonist. Hermoso replaced the Uruguayan central himself 15 minutes into the game against Leverkusen, where Giménez was injured. After this he completed the duels before Athletic, Alavés, Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen, Espanyol, Granada, Juventus, Barcelona, ​​Villarreal and Lokomotiv. With the passing of the parties he had been gaining confidence until he became increasingly important, leaving great performances against Barça and Villarreal. He won in placement, strength and kept his great ball out as a strong point regarding its competitors for the position. But the team returns returned him to ostracism and in Copa del Rey he will have the opportunity to show that he is prepared to become important again. In the case of Marcos Llorente has not had an important presence in the eleven during any section of the course. What’s more, it just accumulates three titles and 369 minutes So far this season. In the Spanish Supercup he did step forward, becoming a key piece in the comeback against Barcelona in the semifinals of the tournament. He entered with a 2-1 against the scoreboard and was capital in the third goal of the encounter with an initial robbery that ended up leading to the goal of Correa. In addition, he could do his goal with a spectacular ride, but finally Neto repelled the shot. Since the extension in the final against Real Madrid, he has not returned to participate in the last two league matches of Atlético despite the loss of Koke and the presence of Saul on the left side, so it can be claimed in the duel against the Cultural.last_img read more

DONEGAL PRIEST SAYS ABORTION BILL IS PLAN TO INTRODUCE ABORTION ON DEMAND

first_imgA well-known Donegal priest has said the abortion bill is merely a disguised plan by the Irish Government to introduce abortion on demand.Fr. John Joe Duffy of Stranorlar said he has real fears about the Government’s proposals.In a statement to Donegal Daily, Fr Duffy said he is dismayed by the plans by the Labour and Fine Gael Government on the issue which he claims are being enacted merely to stay in Government. The following is a full text of his statement. “I am gravely concerned about the governments proposals regarding their intention to legislate for abortion. Despite the assertions by government that the well being and welfare of the expectant mother is to the forefront and center of this legislation, I submit that their true intention is the liberalisation of the availability of abortion on demand in Ireland. By legislating on suicide threats as grounds for the termination of life as per the proposed legislation, does not at all safeguard the well being of the mother nor does it put her mental health well being to the forefront.“The legislation intends to give the right to the expectant mother to seek a termination on the grounds that she feels suicidal and it be asserted by her presenting herself as suicidal in a hospital environment. Based on the heads of the proposed legislation published by the government, no criteria is set down where the psychiatric history is taken into consideration. Nor that continual assessment and counselling of the expectant mother may be put into place over a period of time. Basically the legislation is a very blunt instrument whereby the 2 psychiatrists and 1 obstetrician deal with the case the expectant mother presents to them at face value.If the well being of the mother was the sole determinant factor in this legislation, then help, assistance and guidance, medical or psychiatrist or both would be offered in the first instance and provided for in this legislation, but that is not the case. Abortion is never the solution to address the mental health of an expectant mother or suicidality, unfortunately in many cases only to increase suicidality. What the legislation taken at face value is supposedly hoping to prevent will unfortunately only greatly add a greater burden of suicidality on the woman in the fullness of time. What we now have is the scenario where psychiatrists whose medical responsibility is to help the mental health of individuals are now legalally responsible as per the legislation to sign off on the abortion of life unborn. The legislation is flawed because if the well being and mental health of the expectant mother were central to the government’s intentions, then they would do everything possible within the legislation to ensure termination would not occur. It is proven in various professional assessments, reports and studies that an abortion of a pregnancy greatly increases the strains and stresses leading to increased suicidality, suicide, and drug dependency. “I fear the true motivation for this legislation was revealed in last Sunday’s newspapers by both Aodhan O’ Riordan and Ann Ferris, the Labour TDs, when they let slip that the true intention of this government is to ultimately have abortion on demand . I am dismayed that the pre-election promises and committments made by FG public representatives not to legislate for abortion has been sold out by them for the price of staying in government. FG are appeasing the true Labour agenda which is the direct and intentional killing of the unborn child on demand. I am asking public representatives regardless of political affiliations, regardless of religious beliefs to stand up for life, to stand up for the protection of the unborn, for the well being of the mother. This legislation is flawed from the very outset because it’s intentions were never for the well being of the mother or the protection of the life of the unborn. It’s intentions were solely the liberalisation of abortion on demand as stated once again by the former Taoiseach, Mr. John Bruton in Tuesdays papers where he said this was unconstitutional. He goes onto to say that he knows of no other area of law, where a threat of suicide is sufficient to make legal, what would otherwise be illegal. Legislating on the basis of the X case is bringing legal certanity to flawed legal judgement by the Supreme court rather than the legal clarity in which the Taoiseach Enda Kenny talks about. In essence what the govt is doing is using flawed legal interpretation and turning it into statute law under the constitution, and this is very wrong. The main party in this coalition government do not have the moral authority to vote in Dail Eireann for this legislation because they gave an electoral pledge that they would never do so. There fore Minister of State Dinny Mc Ginley, and Deputy Joe Mc Hugh, need to stand up and publicly account for their voting intentions regarding this proposed legislation. We the electorate must hold them to account.“Let us a society not sleep walk our way into liberalisation of abortion in our times in our country, as a permanent solution to any problem regardless of what some politicians would hoodwink us into believing. Abortion solves nothing, it just ends life. Fr John Joe Duffy,Stranorlar,Co.

first_imgEngland ace Daniel Sturridge could be handed a rare opportunity if Firmino is ruled out.“He will be ready,” Klopp said of Sturridge, who has made four substitute appearances this season after enjoying a decent pre-season – scoring six goals.“If Bobby can’t play, Dom (Solanke) and Divock (Origi) can’t, then we are short of options.

FA ‘set to block Barton loan move’

first_imgThe Football Association are set to block any attempt by Joey Barton to see out his 12-match ban by going out on loan, according to The Sun.Barton is currently training at Fleetwood Town, with QPR supposedly keen to loan him out so that his suspension is served quickly because of the large number of games lower-division teams face early in the season.Championship clubs Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday are also reported to be interested in the controversial midfielder.It is suggested that a short-term loan would require an application to the FA and the chances of getting a move pushed through is seen as unlikely.Meanwhile, Portuguese newspaper A Bola report that Benfica are closing in on the signing of QPR’s Armand Traore.Ashley Cole could be content to let his Chelsea contract run down without signing a new deal before his current one expires next year, the Daily Mirror say.Cole has still not been offered a contract extension and it is said that sources close to the England left-back have indicated he is prepared to keep his options open.The Daily Mail say Victor Moses wants talks with manager Roberto Martinez as Wigan continue to block a transfer to Chelsea.Moses is said to have set his heart on a move to Stamford Bridge but the Blues have had a number of bids for him rejected, the latest apparently being for £6.5m.This page is regularly updated.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Draft tax laws up for public comment

first_img6 June 2011The National Treasury has released a draft of the 2011 Taxation Laws Amendment Bills (TLAB), which includes personal income tax relief, for public comment.The draft was released on Thursday, which gives effect to the budget review tax proposals that were announced in the Budget in February.“The [draft] includes most, but not all the 2011 Budget proposals, as some proposals require further work or consultation; the taxation of gambling winnings and contributions to retirement funds are thus not included,” the Treasury said in a statement this week.“These outstanding matters will be covered by separate legislation in the form of a second set of bills.”Formal hearingsThe draft is published for public comment before formal introduction in Parliament. The standing committee on finance convenes informal hearings on these draft bills and considers public comments received.The National Treasury and the South African Revenue Service (Sars) will consider all the comments received, and thereafter submit a response document to the standing committee in August.“The draft Bills are then revised and formally introduced in Parliament by the minister of finance [expected to be in early September],” the Treasury said.Tax bracket adjustmentsThe draft legislation deals with personal income tax relief through adjustments to the personal income tax brackets and rebates amounting to R8.1-billion, and the introduction of a third rebate of R2 000 per year for taxpayers 75 years and older.It also proposes an increase in the tax-free interest-income annual threshold from R22 300 to R22 800 for individuals below 65 years and from R32 000 to R33 000 for individuals aged 65 years and older, among other matters.The draft legislation and explanatory memorandum can be found on the National Treasury website www.treasury.gov.za.Comments should be submitted to the National Treasury via Nomfanelo Mpotulo at nomfanelo.mpotulo@treasury.gov.za and to Sars via Adele Collins at acollins@sars.gov.za by 4 July 2011.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
