Álex Fernández and his family, hit by the coronavirus

first_imgIf the situation were to lengthen, as predicted by Madrid, the competition would be complicated, “It is difficult to do the exercises. And that we have a garden that somehow helps. But in the end you do not train at the level you need and were doing before. We try to move and work so as not to lose shape, but in the end when it comes back we will not be as is the desire and we will have to do a mini preseason. “Despite this, the Alcalá de Henares confident that the competition can be resumed and get the promotion he has fought so hard for all season. “I don’t know what will happen. If we continue, if they cancel it … The truth is that I have no idea. I think that theirs is for the competition to continue because we want to advance, which is what we have been earning throughout the year. We don’t have the last word and we will have to be prepared for the decision that is made. “At the moment, Álex admits that he is psychologically well, but begins to value having the freedom to make plans outside the home. “I am psychologically strong. The fact that I usually like being at home, where I play and am with my son, helps me. For me it is not a tremendous difficulty, but it is true that now you value aspects such as going to the movies or having a drink with a partner. “Lastly, the playmaker dedicated a few words to the people who have to continue at the foot of the canyon working outside the home and exposing themselves to the virus. “The people who have to work on the street, who are forced by that situation, make me very sad. They are the ones who are going to end this situation in the end but, at the same time, they are the most exposed. Our problem is quite different. You strip films, books, you have time to play with the children and be with the dogs. They, those who have to face the day to day on the street, are risking everything. When everything is over, I will give you my particular and more than deserved applause. “ Álex Fernández is suffering fully from the consequences of the coronavirus. Yesterday he recognized Diario de Cádiz that He has a family that has tested positive for the COVID-19 and has also suffered the loss of a relative. The Madrid footballer lives from the isolation of his home in Cádiz the terrible situation that the country is going through due to the pandemic, but above all, his hometown, where the player from Cadiz has family and friends, “I am in daily contact with my family and, except for what happened to that elderly relative, we are all safe, at home.”The footballer claims to be living this whole situation as if it were a dream, “I am living it like everyone else, under a strange situation. It is super strange everything. But I carry it in the best possible way and with my family.”Also, insist that it is something that never seems to touch you until it arrives. “You are never prepared for such a situation; it is impossible to imagine it. What I most want right now is that a very large number of people are not taken ahead. We are in that fight and we contribute our commitment to being at home fulfilling what they recommend “.Álex Fernández continues, like the rest of his teammates, training at home, but the man from Madrid is convinced that the quarantine will exceed the 15 days originally planned. “We are going to have to stay at home two more weeks. It is the feeling that I have for what I read and for the news that reaches me.”last_img read more

Iraq demands Syria stop foreign fighters

first_img In Baghdad, gunmen fired on the compound of the Embassy of Oman, killing two people and wounding two others – the second fatal shooting involving employees of Arab embassies in Baghdad this week. One of the dead was a policeman and the other was an embassy employee, said police Maj. Falah al-Mohammedawi said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Iraqi prime minister demanded Friday that Syria do more to keep foreign fighters from crossing into western Iraq, where U.S. troops are battling al-Qaida-led forces. Five more American service members were reported killed. Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, appearing with visiting Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, told reporters it was “no secret” that foreign fighters were using Syrian territory to enter Iraq and the government had implored the Syrians to crack down on such movements. “So we ask why the Syrians are not responding to our people’s demands,” al-Jaafari said. “We demand that they control their borders, prevent infiltration and terrorism. We want good relations with Syria, but this cannot be achieved when such violations exist.” U.S. troops launched a major offensive last week against al-Qaida-led fighters near the border with Syria, an area the U.S. command describes as the major entry point for foreign Islamic extremists responsible for many of the suicide attacks that have killed hundreds of Iraqis in recent weeks.

Two U.S. Army soldiers were killed Thursday by small-arms fire during combat operations in Khaldiyah, 55 miles west of Baghdad, the military said. Two other American soldiers died in a traffic accident northwest of Kirkuk, the military said. The deaths brought the number of U.S. service members killed in Iraq since the war began in 2003 to 2,061, according to an Associated Press count. Syria maintains it has tried to curb infiltration across its borders and has accused U.S. and Iraqi forces of failing to do their part to control the long desert frontier. The Syrians insist allegations against them are part of a U.S. media campaign to discredit their government for opposing the Iraq war. Elsewhere, three Iraqi police officers were killed Friday when their vehicle was ambushed near Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. last_img read more

In Las Vegas, people are being rolled out

first_imgLAS VEGAS – Wading nearly knee-deep in the mattresses, sooted clothing and discarded tires dumped outside his trailer, Rubin Reams wants visitors to know he hasn’t always lived this way. The 51-year-old poker dealer never had much of a financial cushion. But he worked full time and steadily, owning a 40-foot double tip-out trailer he happily called home. Then the mobile-home park he lived in was sold to a developer, and the rug – like the land – was pulled out from under him. “I’ve always been able to survive, but sometimes I can’t believe I got into this spot,” he said, surveying his departed neighbors’ abandoned belongings. “I feel like I’ve been slowly backed into a corner.” Reams is caught in a trend sweeping real estate markets where land prices and development are booming. Park owners are increasingly selling out for massive profits to developers who covet the land for posh condominiums, strip malls and office parks. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake In the Las Vegas area, where the cost of an undeveloped acre has risen more than 80 percent in a year, 14 mobile-home parks have closed or announced plans to close this year alone. That’s more than the seven previous years combined. Experts say the pattern is being repeated in pockets across the nation, particularly in Sun Belt and Pacific Northwest states. Arizona has seen 30 parks close in the past two years, many in the path of Phoenix’s eastern sprawl. Washington’s mobile homeowners association estimates that the state has lost 500 mobile- home spaces in the past 6 months. Florida is losing 5,000 to 10,000 mobile-home spaces a year, according to industry estimates. Many of the park owners who sell are mom-and-pop operators who have put off repairs and upgrades for years, can’t accommodate newer, larger manufactured homes and charge little for rent. At the same time, corporations are opening bigger manufactured housing communities often filled with pricey high-end homes. “These parks that are closing tend to be filled with older, small homes,” said George Allen, a mobile-home park owner and real estate management consultant who writes an industry newsletter. “Those homes are far more than affordable, they’re cheap. It’s for people who can’t afford any other kind of housing.” In Las Vegas, a city once known as an oasis of low-cost living, the median price of existing homes has reached $280,000, while the median household income hovers at about $49,300, according to Applied Analysis, a local research firm. Nurses, teachers, senior citizens and casino workers like Reams are increasingly finding it hard to buy into the market. For many of these people, mobile homes and trailer-park living are a viable and attractive alternative, said Renee Diamond, head of the Nevada Division of Manufactured Housing. On the low end of the rental scale, homeowners such as Reams can buy a trailer for several hundred dollars and pay $320 a month in rent. Slots in newer communities rent for about $550 a month. “I’d just rather have something that was mine,” said 39-year-old Shawn Kirby, a former resident of the now shuttered Tropicana Mobile Home Park just off the Las Vegas Strip. When the Tropicana was sold to a Florida developer, Kirby and other residents were faced with two options: Let the owners pay for the move to another park or take a lump-sum payout of the market value of their mobile homes. Kirby, as did many Tropicana residents, took the payout – which at $3,700, was four times his monthly disability check. Days after the deadline for relocation, Kirby was back at the eerie ghost town of abandoned mobile homes at the Tropicana looking for work helping the few lingering residents pack up and move. Several residents were still squatting in empty homes without electricity or water. Scavengers picked through empty sites marked with orange spray paint to indicate they were slated for removal and probable destruction. “It turned pretty dark,” said Reams of his last few months at the Tropicana. Some desperate residents left behind what they didn’t want or couldn’t afford to take. The space in front of his home became a de facto trash dump. The process of uprooting a neighborhood is never pleasant or problem-free, said Marolyn Mann, executive director of the Nevada Manufactured Home Community Owners, a park owners group. Mann noted that Nevada law requires owners to give six months’ notice to residents and follow strict procedures for removing or buying the homes. Many owners give more time and pay more than the law requires, but in the end, park owners have a right to sell their land, she said. “I think it’s appropriate to compensate residents fairly, but by their very definition these are mobile homes, meaning they’re supposed to be mobile,” Mann said. “They were never meant to be permanent.” Nevada state officials say the law could be changed to benefit residents. Under current regulations, park owners are allowed to deduct the cost of the disposal of the home from the payout. That cost can often eat up the bulk of the payment, particularly for older mobile homes. “In essence the homeowner can still end up getting zero,” said Allen Scott, an investigator at the Nevada Division of Manufactured Housing. Government officials in other states are looking at ways to cushion the transition. Housing advocates in Arizona have pushed for “right of first refusal” laws that give residents the first shot at buying the land before it can sold. In Florida, local officials have begun to seek compensation from the deepest pockets. Elected leaders in Pinellas County, Florida, where 92,000 people live in mobile homes, approved a measure last week requiring developers wanting to rezone parks to pay rental assistance to residents for two years after relocation. That additional assistance would have helped Reams, whose check from the Tropicana helped him excavate his mobile home from the rubbish pile and set out in search of a new place to live. He stayed at hotels and campgrounds for weeks, until finding a park off a highway just outside the city. His rent is one-third more than what he paid at the Tropicana – and more than he can afford in the long term. But he said it will have to do until he can find something else. “No, I’m not quite settled, yet,” he said. “That’s an understatement.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mr Charlie Cannon and Margaret RussellThe retirement of Mrs Eileen Maguire, who has taught in Errigal College for 39 years, was celebrated by her colleagues, students and retired staff on Monday morning.Eileen started teaching Physical Education in the old gymnasium in Letterkenny Vocational School in Ard O’Donnell in 1985. In 1987, the new school opened in Windyhall and Eileen and her students enjoyed using the brand new gym.Mrs Mary McGrath who retired from Errigal College in 2007, told the audience of her happy memories of working with Eileen. She recalls that Eileen was always very committed in every aspect of her work, ranging from teaching P.E. to her leadership in the production and updating of Errigal College’s various policy statements. Mrs Cathy Rafferty, Irish teacher agreed with Mrs McGrath’s words. She also spoke highly of another of Eileen’s qualities: “Eileen wasn’t just a colleague; she was an advisor. She always spoke from the heart”.Speaking on behalf of the Co. Donegal E.T.B., Dr Martin Gormley spoke highly of Eileen’s contribution to the E.T.B. students and staff over the years. Chairman of the board of Management, Cllr. Jimmy Kavanagh thanked Eileen for her wonderful commitment and exceptional dedication over the years.Shaneagh Mae Atkinson and Abraham Abiola Phillips presenting a bunch of flowers to Eileen Maguire.Errigal College’s annual Christmas Concerts were a collection of music and dance involving parents, staff and students. Eileen saw an opportunity to combine Physical Education and entertainment, and trained her students to put on breath-taking gymnastic displays.Eileen as chairperson of the Errigal College Extra-Curricular Committee was responsible for organising and coordinating all sporting and extra-curricular activities within the College. The commitment and energy that Eileen brought to her job was reflected in the success of Errigal College in the annual Co. Donegal Track and Field Championships. School Principal, Mr Charlie Cannon spoke very highly of her chairmanship: “Eileen is always very busy but she always has time for extra-curricular meetings and activities. She always gives 100% and her commitment and positivity are contagious. She loves the school and the students and always wants to do her best. This has made her a perfect role model for the younger staff”.In 1997, Errigal College introduced a Post Leaving Cert course in Sports and Recreation Studies. Eileen was the coordinator of this programme and it is still running today. It has gone from strength to strength, giving graduates excellent career prospects. Many graduates have gone on to complete Degrees and Masters Degrees.Eileen’s career took a new direction in 2007 when she became Errigal College’s first Home School Community Liaison teacher. Her duties as H.S.C.L. were “to extend the friendly face of the school and build relationships with parents”. She explained that “the ultimate purpose is to maximise the child’s involvement and their retention in the education system”.Errigal College Prin. Mr Charlie Cannon wishing Eileen a well-deserved happy retirementEileen’s commitment to this valuable programme has brought great success. She has worked closely with parents and helped them to develop their skills and potential. She did this by organising various courses in Cookery, Maths for Parents, Parenting Courses, Restorative Practices, Walking Groups, Coffee Mornings… and so much more thanks to Eileen’s 100% effort”.The READ LK programme was initiated in Errigal College in 2012. The aim of this project is to get as many people as possible to be reading the same book at the same time. Eileen was one of the leaders of this wonderful project and it has grown and grown. It is now known as READ DL. In 2014 she was one of the team leaders who accepted an award from the E.T.B. 2014/’15 was Eileen’s final year in Errigal College. However, instead of relaxing and winding down towards retirement, Eileen rolled up her sleeves and worked even harder.She was one of the small team who produced the ‘Errigal College – 100 Years Celebration’ centenary book. She spent long hours researching the school’s history and interviewing many people, before sitting down and writing excellent articles.The editor of the book explains “Eileen was literally an inspiration to the rest of us. Her love for Errigal College meant that she wanted to produce an excellent book. I’m glad to say that her hard work has paid off”. This wonderful book is available in many shops around Letterkenny, and is also available in the school office.In her role as Home School Community Liaison person, Eileen built many bridges between staff, students, parents and the local community. The invaluable network of relationships of parents and community are her parting gift to Errigal College. And they are only part of her legacy. She has contributed to the education and development of thousands of young people. Mr Cannon emphasised how much she would be missed and wished Eileen a happy and well-deserved retirement.TEARS AND EMOTION AS EILEEN RETIRES FROM ERRIGAL COLLEGE AFTER ALMOST 40 YEARS was last modified: September 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Eileen Maguireerrigal collegeretirementlast_img read more
