Frenkie de Jong is passing the confinement in Amsterdam, where he has used until the last moment to train with the ball, not even alone. In the Netherlands, until a week ago, sports were allowed as long as regulatory distances were respected and you were not quarantined., circumstances that the Dutch from Barcelona took advantage of until the authorities have decided to tighten the isolation measures. Now in the Netherlands you can continue going out, but individually, and De Jong has sent this newspaper that currently no longer leaves home. The images of De Jong training alone in a sweatshirt of the brand that he sponsors and sweatpants from Ajax, his former team were taken last week on a public soccer field next to his home and frequented by others fans as you can see in the pictures. What he misses is one of the images in which he is seen accessing the stadium jumping a fence. According to the player himself, it was to be isolated and not share the field and that instead of waiting for it to be opened, he jumped over the fence to exercise.Now, the time to play football has also ended in the Netherlands, waiting for the situation to return to normal after the coronavirus.
Frank Lampard He arrived on the Stamford Bridge bench last summer with the possibility of signing reinforcements banned due to the punishment imposed by UEFA. This is why the former player blue was forced to make use of the quarry and trust the new batch of Chelsea footballers. Specifically, in three of them: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount. And it is precisely the latter who has landed in a better way in the elite.The very young 21-year-old midfielder packed just six to trade Portsmouth for London and enter the quarry blue. He served in the lower categories until the summer of 2017, at which time he was transferred to the Dutch Vitesse. His stay in the tulip country would last only one season, since in 2018 he returned to British lands leaving again on loan to Derby County, militant in the Championship, the English second division. In the summer of 2019, Lampard believed that it would be useful for his new project. I was right. Mason Mount has not only earned a fixed position based on numbers (six goals and four assists), but, until the break, it has curdled an enormous season. Despite his youth, he has managed to sit Barkley on the bench and become a regular at the Stamford Bridge team. It is no coincidence that more than one has fallen in love with their high level, including Leo Messi, the Barcelona star.The Argentine star assured, in an interview collected by Football London and Daily Mail, that the one from Portsmouth “It has the potential to be one of the best.” This is also contemplated by Gareth Southgate, England’s national coach, whose idea was that Mount would be part of the 23 selected to play in the Euro Cup. However, due to the postponement of the tournament until next year due to the coronavirus, everything has been left in the air. But Chelsea’s young promise will continue to fight to not lower the level, continue to be decisive for Lampard and earn a place in the English team next year.
It was welcome relief for Portmore, which had lost three consecutive matches in the Red Stripe Premier League. Hewitt said injuries were partially to blame for those setbacks. “There have been some injuries, so we had about four players who have not played in over six games … . [Injuries] have been contributing to our performances over the last few matches. But we are Portmore United, and whoever we put on the pitch must be ready to play, but we are just glad that we got our [injured] players back and we are just getting ready for the next round [of games],” he said. In Sunday’s parish knockout decider, Portmore controlled the match but found it difficult to score, even though they created a number of openings. Hewitt insists they must improve if they are aiming to win more trophies this season. “I thought the Bodles team was really organised; they must have had some quality to reach the final. They knew us and it was evident that they did their homework. They did not allow us to play our free-flowing football, but we eventually broke through and got two goals. “But I thought we could have done much better in front of goal and separate ourselves with a bigger margin. We created numerous chances, but we were unable to convert most of those. We got two goals and we are thankful, but still we have a lot of work to do in front of goal, and if we can convert half of the chances we create in the Premier League and domestic competition, we will be a force to reckon with,” he said. Bodles’ coach Lenworth Gordon said they were outclassed, but gave up ‘soft’ goals. “We went up against a good,-quality Portmore team, but gave away two soft goals and that was very hard to come back from because they didn’t give us any room to play, and they have quicker players,” he commented. Portmore United’s head coach Jeffrey Hewitt said they are elated to have won their first title of the season after beating Bodles FC 2-0 to win the St Catherine Happy Sutherland Knockout football competition. Hewitt dedicated the victory to the club’s long-serving chairman, Herman Ming, and his family and noted that now that their injured players have recovered, their form should improve in the Red Stripe Premier League. “It’s the first title for the season and we are very happy to have got it, and I want to say thanks to all who have been supporting us, especially the Ming family, and this victory is dedicated to them,” said Hewitt, whose team won Sunday’s title match at Spanish Town Prison Oval courtesy of Tremaine Stewart’s double in the 34th and 69th minutes of a largely one-sided contest.

Dear Editor,There is a direct relationship between the operations of a Government of any country, and its functions to influence governance approaches that are binding on citizens, partnerships with other States, as well as national and international business arrangements.The foundation of such arrangements is enshrined in the Constitution of a State, as it informs the basis under which current and future behavioral norms of any Government is premised. Unconstitutionality in this realm is therefore intolerable!The consequences for breaches of these central Constitutional pillars will not only undermine the current relationships and existing obligations of the State, but will be dire for all futuristic arrangements as it informs a defining framework of untrustworthiness and uncertainty. Such an unpredictable environment feeds illegitimacy, and fuels circumstances under which only the few in Government can benefit.Under the globally accepted democratic formula to which Guyana is constitutionally committed, things have become glaringly abnormal. There is now significant apprehension nationally and internationally, given the surreptitious delaying signals from the fallen of the APNU/AFC Government in response to the passing of the historic No-Confidence Motion in the Nationally Assembly on December 21, 2018.Today, imminent personalities and prominent Organisations both nationally and internationally, are justifiably demanding the activation of the mechanism for the holding of General and Regional Elections within ninety days as instructed by the Guyana Constitution. The immediate resignation of the Cabinet prescribed by Section 106 of the Constitution implies and infers a meaning of immediate suspension of forward functionality by the Principals of this Government Organ. The President is also committed to resign his individual portfolio on the election of a President following elections held in the prescribed period.It is implicit that during this period, Ministers, Prime Minister as well as the persons who formed the Cabinet, would have lost their portfolio. We should refer to them by their respective names only! These rude, abusive and disrespectful persons must face the citizens at the ensuing polls and be held accountable for their activities that informed the loss of confidence by the majority of citizens.Amidst the high tension and the debacle of our citizens’ exposure to the significant incompetence of this APNU/AFC cabal, it is indeed very heartening to see that Guyanese are responding to this present political situation very sensibly.Observably, our people are demonstrating the will to charter their own destiny, and not leave it in the hands of a few self-aggrandising and uncaring individuals. Citizens are going about their daily lives with cool, and waiting for the constitutionally instructive period to change this trespassing APNU/AFC Government by March 19, 2019. Guyanese must not allow our country to have an unconstitutional Government and our citizens have issued the eviction notice.Sincerely,Neil Kumar
Dear Editor,Peeping Tom was quite accurate in his pronouncement that the WPA is a “Paper Tiger”. The facts will show that today they have almost no membership. Today, like political “con artists”, they present themselves as an idea, but this is all a ploy to sell themselves as some political force to be reckoned with, when reality would illustrate that this idea that they continually refer to died with Dr Walter Rodney. So all this hot air today from people like Dr David Hinds cannot be reconciled with grounded facts.But Dr Hinds’s utterances expose an agenda that definitely fosters ethnic supremacy. If one dissects carefully his messages, one would find they are hollow and devoid of any bold political solutions that can aid in unleashing the full potential of our people. What Dr. Hinds is prepared to do today is support these “lumpen” bourgeoisie, who are prepared to put forward names like Kads Khan or Stanley Ming as GECOM Chairman, knowing fully well that these people were both key participants of the PNC campaign from 2001 and beyond.Whatever little principle Dr Hinds has left, it appears he is prepared to consecrate it at the altar of political opportunism, all in the interest of ethnic supremacy of a few, as confirmed in his “Hinds’ Sight” Column on July 7, 2019.But what Dr. Hinds does not tell this nation is that, since June 2015, the ethnic group that he pretends to support did not advance economically under this Granger Government, now JUNTA. If one were to walk in villages like Victoria, Manchester on the Corentyne, and so many other villages, one would see with one’s own eyes evidence of the economic decay over the last four (4) years; yet, the likes of Dr Hinds want these people to bear their economic pain and march with the Granger JUNTA, all in the name of marching with your “kith and kin”.What Dr Hinds is not telling these people is those pertinent facts on how many million were lost to the treasury since January 2019 because members of this Granger JUNTA used the sweat and earnings of these very same people in Victoria and their brothers in Enmore to pay for their duty-free items.What he is not telling these people is that, while 50,000 of their families have to wait for 2 years or more for their “quarter of an acre of land”, some 20 “close men” in the Granger JUNTA have transferred some 23,000 acres of land from the State to their personal assets.While I have nothing against any Guyanese owning oil blocks, like Eric Phillips, when the process lacks transparency and has resulted in these very same people in Victoria losing millions in potential wealth, I have no choice but to reject such financial skulduggery and plunder.If you look carefully at Dr Hinds’s message, he has deviously attempted to vary the narrative away from the political dishonesty and legal evil that is being practised by this Granger JUNTA today. What Dr. Hinds offers them instead is an illusionary bag of gold that will never become a reality once this Granger JUNTA stays in power.That is why the question posed by Dr. Hinds is extremely dangerous. The question: “How the politicians plan to manage the expected collective wealth”, while it is a valid question in a stable political environment, it remains dangerous in the current political dispensation, because it attempts to play mind games with the people. There is nothing in this oil revenue for the people of Victoria if this heist on the treasury continues by this Granger JUNTA.Dr Hinds’s latest political deception is that there needs to be a credible voters’ list, and he cautions the CCJ to take care. But let me expose his subterfuge: The evidence will show that, since 1992, Guyana has had credible voters’ lists on every occasion. Since 2008, when the last House-to-House Registration was done, there has not been one attempt at voter fraud (e.g. someone voted twice, or someone fraudulently impersonating a legitimate voter). Not ONE! But yet Dr. Hinds parrots the usual line that the list is not credible, which is nothing but an untruth.Since 2008, there have been Continuous Registration and four (4) Claims and Objections processes, which all contributed to a list that is as clean as is practically possible. These updated lists have served four (4) elections excellently. Even an international not-for-profit entity (IDEA) provided a study that reveals that Guyana has one of the cleanest voters’ lists in the Caribbean. Yet Dr. Hinds has the nerve to attempt to lecture this nation on the credibility of the list.One famous philosopher once said it is the intellectuals who destroy the seeds of good and fertilise the seeds of evil that grow up to ruin mankind. Dr Hinds’s actions aptly support this prognosis.We, the people, must never trust the words of Dr David Hinds, since most of his utterances prove that he is unfit and not credible to be an independent commentator. His only game plan is to mislead, and we must not fall victim to this game, which is grounded in the supremacy of one group over another.Regards,Sasenarine Singh

Minister Joe McHughMinister Joe McHugh has welcomed news of a €25m investment by Randox Teoranta and increase in jobs to over 500 by 2020 in Dungloe.Minister of State for the Gaeltacht told Donegal Daily a few moments ago: “I am delighted to welcome today’s announcement by Randox Teoranta that they are investing €25m in their Dungloe plant, with the potential of increasing jobs from 66 to 540 by 2020.“This is a great day for Dungloe and for Donegal. “I had an opportunity a number of weeks back along with my colleagues in Udarus to see first hand the cutting edge work which is taking place in Dungloe. This was a great insight and I was delighted to meet so many people from my own County working there, including my own parish.“I would like to commend the dedicated Management Team for their enterprise and energy in driving forward an industry that will be leading and competing on the world stage.“There is no doubt that this investment by Randox today will have benefits for the whole North West region. This commitment to the surrounding communities will act as a new roadmap, allowing us to position the region as a centre of excellence in the fields of engineering and life sciences. And the relationship between the third level sectors will be critical to driving forward the ambitious plans here in Dungloe.“I would like to acknowledge the great spirit of co-operation between Randox and Udarus na Gaeltacht and I know this partnership will go from strength to strength as this development expands over the coming years. I also want to commend Udarus for their dedication to job creation over a number of difficult years and I intend to do all I can to help support this essential work. “This is a very good day for Randox and an equally good day for County Donegal. I had an opportunity a fortnight ago to reach out to our diaspora in Boston and inform them that there are opportunities in Dungloe in the field of engineering and life sciences. Too many of our young people have had to emigrate over the past number of years. With that in mind I would like to congratulate all involved who are trying to reverse that trend.” MINISTER JOE McHUGH ON DUNGLOE JOBS: ‘THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR DONEGAL’ was last modified: October 19th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:500 jobsdonegaljobsJoe McHughMinisterrandoxTD
Observations cause a major upset in planet formation theory, and the time needed for evolution.Two days ago, we reported the evidence for youth in Saturn’s rings and moons (19 Dec 2018). A new report from Science Magazine extends this youth out to the planets around other stars. Daniel Clery, in his article “Hints of young planets puzzle theorists,” gives observational evidence that the long-standing “core accretion” model for planet formation is wrong. At least 20 exoplanets have dust disks that can’t be as old as expected. Keep in mind that planetary scientists still make ‘reckless drafts on the bank of time’ (2 July 2007) as do the geologists, tossing around millions and billions of years like politicians with OPM (other people’s money). In this quote, Clery sounds like a politician realizing there’s not enough revenue for his favorite program.HL Tau, a mere stripling of a star no more than 1 million years old, was swaddled in a surprise. Four years ago, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile revealed gaps in a bright disk of dust around HL Tau—apparently swept clean by unseen planets that had formed millions of years earlier than astronomers thought possible. But now, an ALMA survey of 20 disks around nearby young stars suggests the precocious planets around HL Tau are no anomalies—a result that will keep theorists busy for years.There aren’t enough cloths to swaddle the baby. How big a surprise is this? Clery quotes an astronomer:“It’s spectacular,” says Joshua Winn of Princeton University. “We will never think about disks in the same way.”The findings appear to falsify the favored core accretion theory. “The process is expected to be slow, taking millions of years to play out.” These exoplanets are too young for that. Many of the cleared lanes are farther out than Neptune is from the sun, Clery says, adding to the problem, because there should be a paucity of dust at those distances.Planetary Science: the myth that dust bunnies turn into real bunnies, given billions of years.The evidence takes away support for core accretion theory and hands it to the “heretical” theory called disk instability. How fast is that process?An alternative model relying on unstable ripples or clumps in the disk that collapse under their own gravity can make planets faster, especially large ones in distant orbits. But Marco Tazzari, of the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, notes that the survey found few spiral arms—signs of disk instabilities—in the disks. “There are many structures we cannot account for,” he says.The astronomers only see the lanes cleared of dust, not any planets themselves. Their proposed solution? Futureware. “To untangle these issues, astronomers need additional observations,” Clery writes. At least they are looking now, instead of just modeling. Clery’s article illustrates the latest revision of Murphy’s Law: “Anything that can go wrong has already gone wrong.” Scientists are just finding it with the ALMA Telescope. It also illustrates H. L. Mencken’s conjecture, “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.”Both theories, therefore, don’t seem to work. And what about the rocky, inner planets? Disk instability is not as helpful in those cases.Ashes to Ashes and Dust to DustAt New Scientist, Leah Crane demoted our planet by saying, “Earth may be made up of rocks blasted by gusts of solar wind.” Don’t you feel better now? Our response should be, “If you say it MAY be, it also MAY NOT be. How do you know?” She sings the old Bob Dylan ballad, “The answer, my friend, is…’The solar wind consists of ions, not rocks.Earth may have started as dust in the wind. Unlike in many other stellar systems we’ve seen, the area close to our sun is empty. That may be because early in the solar system’s formation, the solar wind blew rocks near the sun into the area where Mercury, Venus, and Earth eventually formed.That’s odd; we know a lot about the solar wind, and our sun isn’t blowing chunks these days. For cover, Crane runs to Christopher Spalding at Yale University, who has a “simulation.” If you start with the right size pebbles, he says, and if the sun was more active in the past, and if Jupiter contributed its gravity – then rocks 100 meters and smaller “may have acted as building blocks for these rocky worlds.” They “may have,” he says, but he’s cheating. Getting dust to grow into pebbles by accretion is one of the big hurdles in planet formation theories (28 June 2018). At least the ALMA team had observations, not just simulations.Readers, please realize that secular astronomers believed the core accretion model for decades. And before that, textbooks routinely taught the planetesimal hypothesis. And centuries before that Laplace presented the nebular hypothesis, for which he famously told Napoleon it had no need of God. Well, now we have telescopes that fail to confirm it, and the recent “alternative hypothesis” of disk instability isn’t looking too good, either. Let’s put the findings together in a logical way. If exoplanets form quickly, then Saturn formed quickly. If Saturn’s rings and moons are young, then Saturn is young. If Saturn is young, the solar system is young. If the earth is young, then Charlie & Charlie* were wrong; life must have been created. Tell me, theistic evolutionists, why you feel so compelled to abandon Genesis and desire the company of people who keep turning out to be wrong? Don’t you believe Psalm 119:99? “I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation.”*Lyell, Darwin.Recommended resources: Michael Denton is neither a Christian nor a creationist, but his recent books The Wonder of Water (see the video), and Children of Light (hear his podcast) make a compelling case that our universe, our star, and our planet were intended for beings like us. Isaiah said as much long ago. “For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain [i.e., by random forces or the Stuff Happens Law], Who formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:18).For your amusement, here are some Murphy’s Laws that seem appropriate to the story:If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which something can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.Whether things can go wrong or not, it depends on your frame of reference. Regardless of your frame of reference, things will go wrong anyway.Two wrongs don’t make a right. It usually takes three or four.If your action has a 50% possibility of being correct, you will be wrong 75% of the time.Anything that can’t possibly in a million years go wrong, will go wrong.The probability that something can go wrong is directly proportional to the square of the amount of inconvenience it can cause you.The only time something’s right is when everyone agrees its wrong.
