If you can get your laptop to plug into a docking station and a separate screen that would be ideal.center_img Stretches at desk.

FC Goa terminates Sergio Lobera’s contract

first_imgThe news jumped in India. One of the five Spanish Super League coaches (ISL), Sergio Lobera, terminated the contract that united him to FC Goa. “I want to thank Sergio and his team for the work they have done in recent seasons. Our goal was to achieve a football style and build a platform on which to move forward in the future and we achieved it consistently,” wrote Akshay Tandon, president. of the Hindu entity.Lobera, who directed players like Oriol Romeu, Jordi Alba or Sergio Busquets during his time at La Masía, arrived in Goa in the 2017/18 season to instill the Barça DNA in the ‘gaurs’. And he achieved it with unbeatable results: in his first campaign he led the team to the semifinals of the Super League, where he was eliminated by a Chennaiyin who would eventually proclaim himself champion. Last year he fell in the final against Bengaluru, but FC Goa managed to lift the Super Cup, thus conquering the first title of its history. Currently the ‘gaurs’ co-lead the ISL and are the most scorer team in the championship. Although the club reported a mutual agreement, Lobera revealed that “The club informed us that they are willing to separate our paths, since they consider it to be the most suitable for this season and the following“.” We respect the club’s decision, but we don’t share it because it will deprive us of living the great moments that are yet to come, “added the Spanish coach in social networks.Together with Sergio Lobera, Spanish attendees leave FC Goa Manu Sayabera Y Jesus Rodriguez. Footballers Carlos Peña, Edu Bedia and Ferrán Corominas will continue in a team looking for the first league in their history. In the absence of three days for the completion of the regular phase, the orange team is co-leader with nine points ahead of fifth place.last_img read more

Eleven dismissed coaches: the second toughest since 2009

first_imgOf course not counting Juan Carlos Moreno, who spent a week as interim coach of Girona in October, in Second Division they have changed up to eleven times as a coach. The figure would reach twelve if we counted the change of Mr. Almeria before even starting the league. Given that in Second there are twenty-two teams, eleven is a more than significant number at this point in the season. Obviously there are teams that repeat, such as Deportivo (Anquela by Luis César and Luis César by Fernando Vázquez) or Racing (Ania by Cristóbal and Cristóbal by Oltra)but they don’t stop being nine clubs that, for some reasons or others, have dismissed their coach. Especially striking was the change of coach of Almeria, being second in the leaderboard, but, in general, the dismissals have been due to poor sports results: eight of the eleven changes have been with the team in relegation places.With this figure of eleven the record is reached at this point (February 4) in Second of the last eleven years. That is to say, since 2008-09, when precisely on February 3 threw Abel Resino del Castellón, he had not fired so many coaches (There were twelve this season).last_img read more

Marathon Runner Seeks Support

first_img– Advertisement – By Kate ThomasOn a recent overcast afternoon in the Monrovia suburb of Chocolate City, 25-year-old Joy Kollie laced up her sneakers. Then she grabbed the hand of her younger sister Love, 22, and the pair began to warm up for a training session.“I train twice a week,” Kollie said as she stretched. “I love to run. When I run, I feel joy in my heart.”Running might elicit the kind of happiness for which she was named, but becoming a top athlete in a country like Liberia is no easy feat. Since Kollie began running marathons in 2013, she has won two third-place medals in the Liberia Marathon. But in a country like Liberia, where sport is largely seen as the preserve of men, she has also faced stigma and logistical challenges.Born in 1992 to a mother who once played soccer at a national level, Kollie’s deep love for sports began in her childhood. But in Liberia, the mid-1990s were plagued by fractious conflicts, and as the country descended deeper into war, Kollie’s mother moved the family to Lagos, Nigeria. “In Nigeria, girls can play sports,” Kollie said. “They play like men.”When her mother died, the sisters decided to return to Liberia, moving to their childhood community of Chocolate City, on the western outskirts of the capital, Monrovia. By then, Joy Kollie was 20.“When we arrived, I realized that Liberia was far behind Nigeria … no water here, no lights, no good roads,” Joy Kollie said. “When people see girls play soccer, they say, ‘Don’t play, oh!’ They say soccer is only for men. But I say, ‘Who told you that?’”Discouraged by these reactions – especially in a country led by Africa’s first elected female head of state, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf – Joy Kollie turned to running, pounding the pot-holed streets in the early mornings before the day became too hot. In 2013, she ran her first Liberia Marathon, winning third place with a time of 34:19:28.She began training in earnest for the next marathon, due to be held in 2014. Then the Ebola outbreak hit and the organizers had to cancel the race.At the time, Joy Kollie had her own Ebola scare. “My skin was hot and my mouth was bitter,” she said. “They tested me for Ebola and after three days the results came back negative. I was alright; I only had malaria.”But she was not immune to the stigma associated with the illness, and resorted to photocopying her result papers to prove to other members of her community that she had not contracted the virus.“Nobody wanted to talk to me,” she said. “They said, ‘we thought you had Ebola: why did you come back here?’ Nobody believed me.”Taking advice from the Liberia Marathon organizers, Joy Kollie poured her energy into her training, going on to win third place in the 21km race of the 2015 marathon.She dreams of racing internationally, but she doesn’t have any sponsors. In Liberia, sponsorship opportunities are rare. In 2016, the Liberian Olympic Committee was forced to take out a bank loan to ensure its two-person Olympic track team made it to the games in Rio de Janeiro.Without sponsorship, Joy can’t afford to travel to races. Like many young Liberian women, she doesn’t have a steady job. Instead, she relies on small business opportunities in the informal sector, such as selling goods on the streets, or on handouts from family members to get by.“Female athletes have not been given equal opportunities to their male counterparts, not even half of it,” says Martina Brooks, a Liberian sports journalist. “Not much attention has been given to female athletes across every sphere in the sporting arena, from soccer to basketball to athletics. We always hear that there’s no money, there’s no money, there’s no money.”In the future, Joy hopes to train young female athletes. In her Chocolate City community, there is already a group of young girls eager to follow in her sneaker-clad footsteps.“I encourage them. I say, ‘Run! run!,’” she said. “But if they start, who’s going to help them? Who’s going to sponsor them? After training, they ask me for money. They say, ‘Aunty, I want to buy water. Aunty, I want to eat.’ And I just can’t help them with that.”Still, some of them could have a shot at greater sporting opportunities. In 2016, the Monrovia Football Academy – the first school in Liberia to combine soccer training with the standard Liberian curriculum – opened its doors to 30 boys and 20 girls under the age of 13.Love, Joy’s sister, says her heart is in soccer and she harbors the hope that Liberia will one day start to take female soccer seriously. The women’s soccer team has not been active since 2014, when the Ebola outbreak brought national sports to a halt. The Ebola crisis is over, but funding and organizational problems mean the team has not been able to kick off again. There is, however, a women’s national soccer league that was re-launched in 2016. Love Kollie plays for one of these teams, called Blanco FC.As Johnson Sirleaf finishes her term in office in January 2018, Joy Kollie said she hopes the president will be succeeded by a leader who encourages female athletes, be they runners like herself, or soccer players like her younger sister.“We want leaders who will encourage people to do sports,” she said. “We need it.” (UPI).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Joy Kollie is one of Liberia’s top marathon runners, but she lacks sponsor.

Armenian pontiff to visit memorial

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “It will be such an important event for me,” said Knar Kortoshian, a member of the Western Prelacy. “It is our Catholicos paying his respect to our martyrs’ monument and speaking on our rights as human beings.” The pontiff’s historic trip is focused on the theme of “Toward the Light of Knowledge.” Aram I serves as the moderator for the World Council of Churches, an organization representing more than 400 million Christians worldwide. After visiting Montebello, he is scheduled to participate in a number of religious ceremonies, education programs and youth forums in Los Angeles, Fresno and San Francisco. His holiness was elected in 1995 as head of the Great House of Cilicia, the diaspora branch of the church, based in Lebanon. During his many years of service, he has assumed important responsibilities in the Armenian Catholiscosate of Cilicia, as well as the worldwide ecumenical movement. MONTEBELLO — Area Armenians were anxiously awaiting the arrival today of the spiritual leader of one of the Armenian Apostolic Church’s two branches, who will visit the city’s memorial to Armenian genocide victims. His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, will conduct a brief religious ceremony at the Armenian Genocide Monument, which commemorates the estimated 1.5 million Armenians believed to have been massacred by the Turkish government in 1915. “This is an occasion that does not come often, the tremendous opportunity to see him and meet him,” said Zanku Armenian, spokesman for the Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America, the church’s administrative body for the Western United States, which is hosting today’s event. The local visit at 10 a.m. in Bicknell Park is one of many stops in the pontiff’s 15-day visit to California to mark the 90th anniversary of the mass killings. — Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
