first_imgIn LaLiga, the leader is Santi Cazorla. The Spaniard has scored 8 goals in the League and four goals in the Copa del Rey and that he no longer plays as a midfielder. Of the 12 goals, seven have been from the penalty spot. Wylian Cyprien appears as Cazorla’s companion in this medulla. The pivot is a specialist from eleven meters and thus has already added up to 8 goals between the French Cup and Ligue 1.Extremes: Cristiano and MessiThe two most prolific scorers of the last decade who have managed, from the bands, to overshadow any nine. In recent weeks, Cristiano is more successful in the face of door than Messi. The Argentine has not seen the door in the last four games (Valencia, Levante, Betis and in the Cup against Athletic) although he has given five assists. Cristiano has been scoring ten straight games in Serie A. Altogether, 42 goals (19 of Messi by 23 of Cristiano). Two beasts of the goal.Forward: Robert LewandowskiErling Haaland has a total goal more than him but of his 36, 16 have been in the Austrian Bundesliga and Lewandowski wins the position since he still surpasses him in the two competitions they share: Bundesliga and Champions League.The Polish has only stayed at zero in five days of the 21 that leads the German League getting double or hat trick up to five times.

But who are the top scorers in the major European leagues position by position?Goal: Ter StegenIt is not an error. Ter Stegen has not scored a goal so far this season but give two assists if they make him the goalkeeper who has participated in more goals in Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England. The German attended Suarez to make 0-1 against Getafe and Griezmann to get 1-0 against Mallorca. Accumulate the same assists in the League as Parejo, Bale, Muniain, Koke or Joaquin, among others. Determinant in both goals.Defense: Achraf, Hinteregger, Criscito and TheoTwo acquaintances of the Bernabéu band are facing a very productive year facing the door. Achraf is shining in the Champions League as a scorer where he adds four goals in the group stage plus two in the Bundesliga. His former teammate in Madrid, Theo Hernández, has achieved them in his League and of all colors, and remains the top scorer of Milan.Hinteregger, of the Eintracht in Frankfurt, is the most leading scorer in Europe with 7 goals and none with the ball stopped. Not so Criscito, his partner in this defense, who has scored six penalties so far this year with Genoa.Midfielders: Cazorla, Cyprien and Bruno FernandesAmong the three midfielders of this eleven add more than thirty goals in just half a season. Bruno Fernandes is the one that accumulates the most but has not yet managed to do any in the Premier League. 15 goals and 14 assists between Portugal and the Europa League. A total of 29 goals generated for the new signing of Manchester United. In his position and doing all season in Italy Josep Ilicic (14 goals in Atalanta) and Joao Pedro (15 goals in Cagliari) also stand out.last_img read more

Robertson, from super cashier to win the Champions League

first_imgThe Scot grew up in Glasgow and plays in Liverpool, both working cities, and this way of thinking overturns his game on the grass. Do not spare a career, not a drop of work. “Forget the money and everything else. I play football every day. It’s my dream job. If they paid me the same salary that a supermarket employee wouldn’t bother me,” he says. Just being able to touch the ball every day makes Robertson happy with his origins and current privileges. Normality in a dream life that begins to fill with titles. Robertson: “I am ashamed of my incident with Messi” Andy Robertson takes the left band of the European and World champion with the normality of the worker who takes his car or public transport to go to his workplace. “I play football, dodge the sun and put centers.” This is described in his Instagram the Scotsman where he does not boast sports or jewelry, just some good Nike tracksuit, the brand that sponsors him.These things are not going for the Scotsman. His dream was to become a footballer but money, even if it solves him, does not fill him. This is recognized in an interview with Daily Mail. “Money doesn’t make me happy, but since I was three or four I wanted to be a footballer. That was my dream in life,” he acknowledges. And Andy Robertson knows what it is to win the euros like any boy in Glasgow. When he was younger, the Scotsman spent a season as a cashier in the British supermarket chain Marks and Spencer. “Too short to stack things on the shelves,” he acknowledges. But the perfect physique to be the side of Klopp.The side dreamed of football and got his dream but, if he had to stay in the box, he says, he would be just as happy. “To say that leaving the Marks and Spencer box was a fairy tale seemed disrespectful to the thousands of people who work there. They are normal lives and you can live well working there. What if I am happier playing than in Marks & Spencer? Sure, but if that had been my life I would be the same person I am today. Money does not give me happiness “, it states.center_img In last year’s tie against Barcelona, ​​Liverpool’s side pushed Messi after a clash, an action he regrets: “I remember that moment with shame. I don’t like to see it. That day nothing and nobody stood before us, we created that atmosphere of comeback, there was a lot of intensity and … But do that to the best in the world, has no explanation. I have nothing but respect for him and Barcelona, ​​but we entered that game with the intention of climbing 3-0 down, we needed a miracle, we needed something special and if that little action slowed or conditioned the best player in the world playing … “, recognize.last_img read more

Churchill soldier completes a different kind of mission – the Leaving Cert!

first_imgDonegal ETB are now recruiting for a range of courses, including Leaving Certificate for Adults, starting in September 2017.Donegal Daily talked to Churchill native James McLaughlin, who is a Paramedic with the Irish Defence Forces who passed his exams with flying colours.James set himself two major life goals for 2017 and has achieved both physical and educational goals just halfway through this year. In March he completed the 250km endurance race ‘The Race’ and in June he tackled a different kind of endurance test – the Leaving Certificate.James and his wife Eileen, who cycled from Mizen Head to Malin Head in 2015 to raise money for the Good and New Cancer Bus. In 2013 they did a tandem cycle from Churchill to Spain for the same cause.James left school at the age of 16 and did a training course before working at the former Courtaulds factory in Letterkenny. He joined the army on December 1st 1981.The Leaving Cert that he never had was something that was always at the back of his mind, James said. After 36 years of service in the army he decided to seize an opportunity to build on his skills and began a VTOS programme with the Donegal ETB.James had an eye-opening experience of the Leaving Cert and exam pressures. He loved the learning experience and unique classroom of adult learners. The programme is set with six subjects: English, Maths, History, Business, Geography and Biology.On Wednesday last, James was delighted to get his high results in all subjects. He studied at ordinary level and, converting the new marking scheme, he gained the equivalent of four As and two Bs.Donegal ETB members of Leaving Cert Class of 2017: David Gallagher, Liam Mc Laughlin, Emma Dunnion, James Mc Laughlin“You have to set yourself a focus and know you are going to get there in the end. The classes are designed to get you across the line,” he said.James was one of 13 students to get their results at the ETB learning centre last week.“There was an immense range of diversity in the whole course, from my classmate Emma Dunnion who was 19 to myself at 54,” he said. Donegal ETB members of Leaving Cert Class of 2017: James Mc Laughlin and Emma DunnionA rapport was built up between students and the three teachers who covered the six subjects. James felt it was an excellent learning environment and enjoyed the two-way dynamic of lessons in an adult environment.“The only thing the teachers ask of you is you turn up every day, and if you do that you will pass,” James said.Help was always there when the students needed it, James said. Extra study sessions were provided and there was a class group Facebook page where everyone worked together to solve questions.James found Maths to be a particularly tough challenge. “Maths has changed so much to the new Project Maths. It is one thing that will suck you in and take over your time. You have to be disciplined about how you deal with it.” “A lot of subjects are common sense from what I’ve learned over the years. I loved learning about our history,” he said.“When we got to the exams and we opened the paper it’s a great feeling because you know your stuff. That goes back to the way the ETB rolls out the content of the course. Everything they give you is relevant,” James said.Donegal ETB members of Leaving Cert Class of 2017: David Gallagher, Liam Mc Laughlin, Emma Dunnion, James Mc Laughlin and Kellian O DonnellJames was one of three army men to study on the course. He and his brother Liam and their colleague seemed to bring a hard-work ethic to the group, he realised.“We seemed to bring a military authority to the class. There were things we were used to doing from a military background like being always on time, do your best and present yourself well. That would have spread through the class and it was something the teachers remarked as well.”James is currently a Corporal ranked Paramedic and has just completed interviews for the next phase of promotion to Sergeant. The course was a learning curve for James as a man who has long been part of the military institution.“It was great to mix with civilians of different background and different outlooks on life. The ETB opened my mind up to the opportunities that are available out there.”With two years to go before reaching retirement age, James enjoyed mixing with people and having some freedom from the 24/7 responsibilities of the army.Through studying the Leaving Cert James gained an understanding of the pressures his three children were under when they took the exams. He has one daughter about to begin Leaving Cert this year, and he will have plenty of advice to share with her.“My wife Eileen supported me every step of the way, both in the training and the studying. Once you have the home support it’s very easy to achieve your goals.”James places great value on his Leaving Cert. “At my age, it was a great opportunity to go back and do it.“In interviews, no matter what qualification you have the first question people ask you is how did you do in the Leaving Cert, and I’m an experienced Paramedic. It’s a starting block we need as Irish people,” he said.For further information about Leaving Certification for Adults, call or text Sabrina on 087 414 8355 / 0749161581, email or use the Contact Us button on the centre’s Facebook page (AETC Letterkenny).

Not all are in pairs – there are 3 pairs and 6 solitary colors in the pack. The clips not only have a ribbon bow on the prime of them but also have a ribbon on the inside of of the clip which stops the metallic section becoming snagged on hair and need to help you save some tearsthe colors are really and there is quite significantly everything in there to match my daughter’s common outfits – pinks, greens, blues, purples and so forth.

Now my daughter likes to either be properly coordinated or absolutely clashing (like a walking picasso) so getting a assortment of colours is helpful as it permits her to come to a decision who and how she is going to be. The only downside i can see of these hair bows is that the color variety is random and that could be difficult. We obtained one crimson, 2 navy blue, three orange, 1 yellow, one lilac, one white, two brown and 1 pink which is just not terrible. I assume i would have preferred not to have a few of the orange as we are inclined to use both just a single or pairs of clips, but perhaps it will commence a new development.

Facebook Suing for Auto-Logging

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Facebook is suing Power Ventures in Northern California District Court for its social network aggregator, is used to pull together information from a variety of social network sources. Facebook maintains that PV is violating a number of its terms of service, including one that insists you cannot “collect users’ content or information, or otherwise access Facebook, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our permission.”All Facebook said that in itself is not illegal, but by utilizing a proprietary site’s information without its permission makes it “a criminal violation under the California Penal Code Section 502(c) and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).”The Electronic Frontier Foundation filed an amicus brief in support of Power Ventures. Facebook argues that by offering these enhanced services to users, Power violated California’s computer crime law. It grounds its claim in the fact that Facebook’s terms of service prohibit a user from having automated access to a user’s own information and that Power continued to offer the service to Facebook users even after Facebook sent Power a cease and desist letter demanding that it stop. Yet merely providing a technology to assist a user in accessing his or her own data in a novel manner cannot and should not form the basis for criminal liability.It’s hard not to buy the logic of EFF’s argument. It’s equally difficult not to see the possibility that this suit is an attempt to discourage any actions on the part of users to master Facebook information. That interpretation is certainly in keeping with Facebook’s recent activities, in terms of its providing user information to developers and forcing users’ hands when it comes to their own information. Facebook, it might be argued, wants to be the only arbiter of its information. And by its information, of course, they mean yours.

Now…I get it

first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! Photo Attribution: US PresswirePhoto Attribution: US PresswireThis is a guest post by KOSU’s Ben Allen. He responded to my original first post yesterday and I wanted to share his respons with you guys. Hope you enjoy it.I didn’t get it.Who were these people pulling into the raggedy street next to Stillwater Flats at 8 AM on a football gameday? What could possess them to get excited for a cupcake matchup versus Louisiana Lafeyette? You know, there’s other things to do on a Saturday morning than lug a grill, TV, satellite dish, enough food to feed a sorority house for a week, and a healthy collection of alcohol to a small town at least an hour from everything.But as the weeks went by, it became more and more apparent. A “Go Pokes” when I pulled up for an interview and they saw the Oklahoma State University sticker on my state car. Or maybe it was my co-workers at KOSU, a National Public Radio station (not exactly known for rabid sports fans) anxious to talk about the weekend’s football game. But then there was Bedlam 2011, and this became so much more than a bunch of 18-28 year olds (thanks B. Weeden) running around a field.It’s an easy answer, but it’s unavoidable. Of course, there’s the usual pre-game festivities, just times ten in this case. Walking around, things just feel different. There’s a little edge to every step, masked by the friendliness of Oklahomans. But when the Oklahoma State offensive storm clouds opened up, leaving OU not just defeated, but embarrassed, it was the most pure emotion I’ve ever witnessed.It’s like everything was stripped away, students didn’t care about that night’s plans, didn’t care where they would be celebrating. They just wanted to be celebrating. Fans in New England like to boast they’re some of the most passionate in this country. And I have no doubt that’s the case among professional teams. The Red Sox World Series win in 2004 added years to my grandfather’s life, without a doubt. And I’m a Celtics diehard, suffering through an 18 game losing streak spanning 2006 and 2007. When they lost the Finals to the Lakers in 2010, I couldn’t speak about the collapse for weeks, waiting until my cousin and I could hash it out at a bar a month later.But my love of the Celtics is a logical one. Hey they’re making a trip to Oklahoma City in March, I’m trying to get to that. Oh, I’m going home this week, let’s see if I can squeeze in a game at the Garden. It stops at a certain point. That’s how it is for a good chunk of the professional sports team fan.I went to Fordham. We have history (hey Vince Lombardi!), but it’s mostly just that, history. Still, one of the best memories of my college life was when Fordham men’s basketball upset St John’s in Rose Hill Gymnasium, the oldest on campus basketball arena in Division I. None of this can hold a pistol to Oklahoma State. I didn’t have a love of Fordham sports before arriving on campus, and just keep tabs on the teams now.So when Kyle posted “When I Fell in Love with Oklahoma State”, I knew I was in the same ballpark, but it was probably Section 310, maybe 208 if we’re getting charitable. It blows past logic on the way to unquestioned love. It’s something you grow up with, and it becomes a part of your life. Attacking Oklahoma State University in any way is a personal insult.That can lead to some heated “conversations”, but it fosters incredible pride. The school has had some level of success across nearly every sport (thanks for Tony Allen, by the way), but it’s the dedication to Oklahoma State that defines fans.Every fan base complains, everyone wants things to get better, everyone wants to right the injustices in the sports world. But few shut up and show up. And while basketball attendance has lagged (c’mon students, seriously), it will pick up. Baseball too will soon be here, and with it, it would be wrong to expect anything less than healthy crowds at Allie Reynolds with OSU alum Josh Holliday taking over.You can’t fake loving a team. And why would you want to anyway? Sports are meant to be an escape, not another time to put on a show. That’s why I have no doubt countless fans like Kyle can tell the story of Bedlam 2001, or have their favorite Desmond moment, or have lost themselves in Gallagher Iba. That’s not what defines everyone though. It’s belief in Oklahoma State and what it means to each athlete to put on the orange and black.Now, I get it.last_img read more
