Barça is meeting in Doha with Xavi, according to RAC1

first_imgXavi Hernández, 39, is a legend in Barcelona, ​​who said goodbye by lifting the triplet of the 2014-15 season. World champion with Spain and everything with Barça, with which he raised eight Leagues, three Cups of the King, six Super Cups of Spain, four Champions, two European Super Cups and two Club World Cups. After finishing his sports career at Al Sadd, he has debuted this season as a coach and, although he has always said that he is forming and that he sees Barça’s bench away, his opportunity may come now. As reported by RAC-1, Eric Abidal, sports director of Barcelona, ​​and Oscar Grau, CEO of the club, are in Doha (Qatar) meeting with Xavi to explore the possibility of becoming a Barca coach. While the expedition was returning from Arabia after losing the Super Cup against Atlético de Madrid, two of the club’s highest executives and two of the president’s most trusted people, Josep Maria Bartomeu, have gone to Qatar to meet with the current Al Sadd coach to know his thoughts and, perhaps, his availability to lead the Barca team.Beyond Xavi accepting the proposal or not, the stage leaves Ernesto Valverde in a very bad place. Questioned by some sectors of the board, the defeat against Atlético de Madrid He has unleashed the nerves of those who see in the last fifteen minutes of the game a warning of what can happen in the Champions League in a few dates. That losing air of Barça in matches like Rome, Liverpool, the Cup final against Valencia and this Super Cup semifinal has ignited the alarms again. It would, however, be very histrionic that the club that held Valverde against the tide after the historic catastrophe of Liverpool and the ugly fall in the Cup final against Sevilla, dismissed him for a elimination in the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup.

Andre Iguodala out for Golden State in Game 1 of NBA Finals

The Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday in Oakland. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State forward Andre Iguodala will miss Game 1 of the NBA Finals as he recovers from a bone bruise in his left knee that cost him the last four games of the Western Conference finals.Iguodala’s absence is a huge blow to the Warriors’ defense as it works to stop LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Golden State coach Steve Kerr said several players will be called upon Thursday to handle the load that is James, making his eighth straight finals appearance.ADVERTISEMENT Kevon Looney has been starting in Iguodala’s place.Looney planned to talk to Iguodala about the task of guarding James.“I’ll pick his brain about some things … some tendencies of LeBron, the fact of the switches or small things like that to help me out,” Looney said. “He’s one of the best defenders in the league.”That’s why everybody on the Warriors realizes it will be a joint effort guarding James.“What he brings to us on the defensive end will definitely be missed,” Green said. “But it just means other guys have got to step up. Other guys have done that thus far. The task gets even harder but I know guys will and it will be a collective effort in hopes that we keep trekking along until he’s ready to come back.”ADVERTISEMENT Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations Forward Kevin Love’s status for Cleveland remained unclear as he continues to go through the NBA’s concussion protocol. Love was injured in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston that the Cavs pulled out in seven. He wasn’t scheduled to attend media day Wednesday at Oracle Arena, where the Warriors host the series opener in the fourth straight finals meeting between the rivals.“He’s going to go do some things today and see how he feels,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “But he is in the protocol still, so we’ll see how he feels.”Both teams practiced Wednesday on Golden State’s home floor, where the defending champions have won 17 of their last 18 postseason games.James certainly understands what the Warriors are missing without Iguodala’s presence and athleticism.“First of all he has very, very quick hands,” James said. “That doesn’t get talked about a lot, his ability to read and react to the ball either in flight or while you’re dribbling or when you pick the ball up.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next A win, finally “He was MVP of the series in 2015, largely because he took that role on of guarding LeBron. But also because of what he did offensively,” Kerr said. “He’s doing a little bit better today. Some encouraging signs, but we have ruled him out for Game 1. We’ve got lots of guys who can take on that job. It’s a group effort, anyway, guarding LeBron. So, KD (Kevin Durant), Draymond (Green), Klay (Thompson), Shaun Livingston, they’ll all see time on him.”The Warriors said Iguodala, who was injured in Game 3 against the Rockets on May 20, was evaluated Tuesday and is making progress but still has the bruise and inflammation of the nerve surrounding his knee. Kerr has said Iguodala wouldn’t play until he can run without pain.

NGSA results expected next Tuesday

first_imgCome two months after 14,500 students wrote the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) examination at schools across the country, the anticipation of those student as well as their parents will soon end as the Education Ministry is scheduled to release the results next Tuesday (July 5).According to a statement from the Ministry, the marking of all NGSA papers has been completed and the examination scripts are currently being processed nationally. The Ministry assured that all systems are in place to guarantee the release of the results on that day.Some 14,500 students from across Guyana wrote the NGSA on April 27 and 28, this year, more than three weeks later than previous years.The Education Ministry had explained that the dates were extended to allow teachers sufficient time to complete the Grade Six curriculum and give students additional time within which to prepare for their final assessment.NGSA is a placement examination offered at the end of the primary education cycle to determine which secondary school students will be allotted.During the two-day examinations period, the students were assessed in four subject areas: English Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.On the first day, English Language and Science were written, while student wrote Mathematics and Social Studies on the second day. Each subject had two papers. Paper Two was the first paper written and consisted of essay-type questions, while Paper One consisted of multiple choice questions.However, prior to this, students had to write the National Grades Two and Four Assessments, back in 2012 and 2014 respectively. A percentage of the marks from all three assessments will be calculated to determine the overall performance of each student.Last year, some 15,225 students wrote the NGSA examination. Their overall performances were calculated by adding five per cent of each candidate’s Grade Two scores in Mathematics and English, and 10 per cent of the Grade Four score in the same subjects. This was then added to a further 85 per cent of each candidate’s score in those subjects at the Grade Six Assessment.The combined scores in Mathematics and English were then added to the scores gained in Science and Social Studies.The 2015 NGSA top student was Solomon Cherai, of Success Elementary, who topped the country after he secured a total of 530 marks out of 535. Meanwhile, his classmate Shania Eastman came in second with 529 marks.last_img read more

Man shot by Journalist accuses Police of covering up matter

first_img– Police say file with DPPJimmy Ramgobin, the 28-year-old labourer of Sandy Babb Street, Kitty, Georgetown, who was allegedly attacked and shot by journalist, Travis Chase two weeks has accused the Police of covering up the matter.The victim, speaking with Guyana Times on Tuesday, recounted the ordeal, revealing that at no time did he attack Chase by pelting bottles. According to the man, on the night in question, he went out with friends and became highly intoxicated.Injured: Jimmy RamgobinOn his way home, he claimed that due to his drunken state, he fell on the parapet and lost consciousness. He later learnt that he fell unconscious in front of Chase’s girlfriend’s property, located along De Abreu Street, Kitty, Georgetown.However, he was awakened by repeated kicks to his ribs and in a traumatised state, he got up and attempted to escape the beating.“Between my sleep, I feel somebody kicking me in my ribs when I look up, I see a man with a gun in he hand, I look on the other side, I see a girl standing on the other side, so I get up and I decided to run,” Ramgobin related.He further recounted that as he ran away, he heard several shots being fired from behind him and suddenly felt a burning sensation on his right foot.“I heard about four to five shots behind me, I then stop on Garnett Street corner and realise that I got shot, when I look back, I didn’t see anybody,” the man revealed.Ramgobin said with blood oozing from his leg, he made his way to the Police Station where he reported the matter.He related that he was then taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) where he received treatment and was told by ranks that the matter would be investigated.When questioned, Ramgobin held out that at no time did he attempt to attack Chase as was reported to the Police.“There is no way I can attack a person and get shoot behind my foot… there is no way I can attack him with a bottle and get shoot behind my foot, if I was attacking him, I was supposed to be shot in front so I did not shy him with no bottle,” Ramgobin is holding out.According to the labourer, the bullet is currently lodged in his leg and could not be removed by doctors. This, he noted, is hindering him from performing his work. He posited that he will not drop the matter, as he again maintained his innocence.“I can’t do no kind of heavy work right now and this time of the year, I does work hard for my money… this bullet has not been removed, it’s still in my foot, the doctor tell me that bullet can’t come out because it jamming the nerves and the tissue, until January, then they could see if they could operate to take it out”.When contacted, Chase told Guyana Times that he has no comment, noting that the matter is still with the Police.The Police, however, revealed that the case file is still with the Director of Public Prosecutions awaiting directions.It was reported that on December 2, 2018, Ramgobin allegedly fell asleep on the parapet in front of the reporter’s girlfriend’s home but was subsequently awakened by the journalist who began kicking him in the vicinity of his ribcage.On the other hand, the reporter told Police that he was attacked by the man who began to hurl bottles at him and in retaliation; he whipped out his licensed firearm and discharged several rounds. One of the bullets, he told police, struck Ramgobin.The injured man was taken to the GPHC where he was admitted. This publication was told that a .32 spend shell was recovered at the scene. As the news broke of the shooting incident, the journalist held out that he was not involved in the shooting incident and that he had to reason to be in De Abreu Street, Kitty, at that time in the morning since he resides at Lot 1 Republic Drive, Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara.He also related that he was not the owner of a .32 weapon.last_img read more

Auto sales gain a little traction

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! DETROIT – After a dismal start to summer, August looked a little brighter for the auto industry despite continuing concern over high gas prices and turbulence in the housing and financial markets. U.S. sales were flat compared with last August, but that was better than the 12 percent decline the industry saw in July. The annualized sales rate for August was 16.3 million vehicles, the first time that number topped 16 million vehicles since May, according to Autodata Corp. The rate shows what sales would be if they continued at the same pace for the full year. “It’s a solid month against a subpar industry,” Paul Ballew, General Motors Corp.’s top sales analyst, told investors and reporters in a conference call. Still, Ballew said the industry is being hit by economic uncertainty. High gasoline prices and declining home values have caused people to delay auto purchases or exit the market altogether, he said. Lending standards for auto customers also may be tightening, although there’s little evidence of that so far, he said. That uncertainty could give the companies a stronger argument in contract talks with the United Auto Workers to cut what domestic automakers say is about a $25-per-hour labor-cost gap with its main Japanese competitors. Contracts between the UAW and Ford Motor Co., GM and Chrysler LLC expire Sept. 14. The domestic automakers, who saw their U.S. market share dip below 50 percent for the first time in history in July, clawed their way back up to 51 percent of the market in August, according to Autodata. GM, the world’s biggest automaker, surprised analysts by posting a 6 percent increase in sales, led by a 16.6 percent increase in truck sales. Part of that was due to a 24 percent increase in sales to rental car companies, which GM and other U.S. automakers have been trying to cut back on because they hurt brand image and resale values. Ballew said August was a one-time increase and GM will reduce sales to rental fleets through the rest of the year. Toyota Motor Corp. beat out Ford Motor Co. in sales for the month and overtook Ford for the first eight months of the year. The Japanese automaker sold 1.788 million vehicles during the January-August period compared with 1.784 million at Ford. Many analysts have predicted that Toyota will overtake Ford for the No. 2 slot for the full year in 2007. Ford’s top sales analyst, George Pipas, wouldn’t comment on Toyota. Bob Carter, Toyota’s general manager for U.S. sales, said surpassing Ford isn’t part of the company’s internal plan.last_img read more
