Celades: “It has cost us a lot since the beginning, it was a bad day”

first_imgWe are aware that we have not been at our real level and to which we can give. It has cost us a lot since the beginning. It cost us to defend that talent of Real Madrid, link plays, have continuity and reach the opposite area.Why didn’t the team give its size?We had a bad day. We have lacked to be more active. When you play against a team like Madrid you have to have more activity. We weren’t good at any stage of the game, with or without the ball. The final consequence is the result. The players fought until the end, but it was not the day. What analysis do you make of the match? The first goal came from an improper dismissal of a team that plays such a match.Yes. It’s true that until that moment we weren’t too good either. But that goal has hurt us because of how it happened. It has cost us to recover. They are things that cannot happen, but they happen.Has the Madrid approach surprised you?No. We talked about what could happen, playing with all the midfielders and only one center forward. It was similar the first half hour in Mestalla.How does the Arabian team leave?We must move forward. It is a time that is not easy because it leaves you in a bad body, but you have to prepare for what is coming. Now to rest and prepare for the game against Mallorca. There is no other.Do you have any instructions on prioritizing or not the Copa del Rey over the League?Do not.Was the public’s support for Real Madrid influenced you?No. What influenced us was the game.last_img read more

Drug test issue resurfaces for Burbank council

first_img“I don’t see a problem,” he said. “If the community really thinks that their elected officials should be tested, then I’m in favor of it.” The council is prohibited from implementing a mandatory drug-testing policy for elected officials. A 1997 U.S. Supreme Court ruling found that violates the Fourth Amendment against unreasonable searches and seizures. But a voluntary program is OK, according to the Burbank City Attorney’s Office. The city currently has a pre-employment drug-screening program and a reasonable-suspicion policy that allows testing of any employee believed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The city also uses a federally mandated Department of Transportation drug testing-program for city truck drivers. jason.kandel@dailynews.com (818) 546-3306 IF YOU GO The Burbank City Council meets tonight at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 275 E. Olive Ave.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BURBANK – The City Council tonight is expected to consider a voluntary drug- and alcohol-testing program for its five members, which could make the city the first statewide to use such a program. In 1997, the council voted down a voluntary drug-testing policy after reports of alleged drug use by former Councilwoman Susan Spanos. The council decided to revisit the issue in November in the wake of last summer’s arrest of former Councilwoman Stacey Murphy on drug and child-endangering charges. She later resigned. Under the proposed policy, council members would have to voluntarily submit to a urine, blood or Breathalyzer test for illegal substances such as marijuana and cocaine, or alcohol over the .08 percent legal limit, at least once a year. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2But because the tests would be voluntary, a council member has to agree to release the results of the tests. “Council members have a right of privacy in every aspect of submission to a medical procedure, and drug-testing is considered to be a medical procedure,” Judie Sarquiz, the city’s management services director, wrote in her report to the council. “As the Supreme Courts have determined in order to preserve this right of privacy, the drug-testing process in all of its component parts must be a truly voluntary process.” Councilman David Gordon won the seat in January vacated by Murphy. During the campaign, he called for mandatory and random drug tests of elected officials. “As any employer would want to know that his or her employees were unimpaired, I think the citizens … would want to be reassured about their elected officials in the same type of fashion,” Gordon said. Mayor Todd Campbell supports the idea. last_img read more

Hughes to be sacked by Saints? Here’s how his other reigns ended

first_img Mark Hughes could be searching for a new job after this weekend Hughes, who had been linked with the Aston Villa vacancy, resigned less than a month later. He revealed he left Fulham because “my ambition for where I wanted to take the club was not matched.”That comment did not go down well with Fulham owner Mohamed Fayed, who hit back, calling Hughes a “strange man” and a “flop”.Queens Park RangersFinal game: QPR 1-3 SouthamptonDate: November  17, 2012After successfully keeping QPR up the season before, Hughes was given huge funds to spend on players for the 2012/13 season. Julio Cesar, Jose Bosingwa and Esteban Granero were some of the high-profile signings.A heavy home defeat to newly-promoted Southampton extended QPR’s winless start to the season to 12 games, which included eight defeats. As a result, Hughes’ 10-month reign came to an end. Mark Hughes bowed out of Manchester City with a win 7 Fabrice Muamba heads in Birmingham’s fourth goal Manchester CityFinal game:  Manchester City 4-3 SunderlandDate: December 19, 2009National newspapers were reporting that Hughes would be axed regardless of the Sunderland result. Roque Santa Cruz’s 69th-minute winner saw City edge past 10-man Sunderland. But with the club 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea, the Etihad hierarchy relieved Hughes of his duties.Billionaire Sheikh Mansour bought City in September 2008 and gave Hughes close to £200 million to spend on players, which included, at the time, a record-breaking British transfer fee of £32.4 million for Robinho.

South Africa gives assistance to Malawi

first_img30 April 2012 South Africa has agreed to extend a loan of US$35-million to the government of Malawi to help with the availability of fuel in that country, following a meeting between President Jacob Zuma and new Malawian President Joyce Banda. The loan will be made in three installments, with the first, of $10-million, having been paid on 24 April.

You Are Teaching. But Are You Also Learning?

first_imgOne of the ways you create value for your clients is by having the business acumen and the situational knowledge to help them do better business. Having a teachable insight is all the rage, even though I don’t believe it’s easy to get real chops (and I don’t believe we’re doing what is really required).But as important as it is to be able to share your insight in a meaningful way, using your insight to create value for your customer, it’s equally important that you learn.I’m reflecting on my own business experience. In the industry in which I grew up, I spent time with literally thousands of different businesses. I dealt with hundreds of different types of businesses. I worked with companies in all kinds of verticals, with all kinds of strategies, and with very different business needs. By working with these different companies, I got a first rate business education. I was taught how their businesses worked. I was taught how they thought about their businesses. And working with them to solve some of their greatest challenges, I picked up insights and ideas that I could then use to help other clients in different industries.I’m naturally curious. I’m interested in other people, and I am interested in their businesses. It’s fascinating. In a lot of cases I asked business leaders who had knowledge that I didn’t to share their ideas with me. Not only did I learn a lot, but it made these leaders much more open for me to share my thoughts and ideas with them.Having business acumen, situational knowledge, or “insight” if you must, levels the playing field. It makes you a peer when you’re speaking with decision-makers and decision-influencers.But where you going to get all the ideas you need? How are you going to know what works and what doesn’t work? What experience are going to leverage when you haven’t yet had some the experiences you need? How are you going to know how different business leaders in different verticals think about the problems and challenges they are facing?Teaching is good. But you’ll have a lot more to teach if you are also a perpetual student and if you remember that you still have much to learn.The more open you are to learning, the faster you become valuable for your clients.QuestionsHow much emphasis are you placing on really learning versus learning to teach?How many insights should you have? How many insights do you need to really be valuable for your clients?What do you teach when your teachable insight doesn’t resonate with your dream client? Essential Reading!
