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

Sheriff: “We have shown that we don’t care about the rival”

first_imgThe Real Sociedad coach, Imanol Alguacil, stressed that this Thursday they will face a “special and very important” moment with the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals against Mirandés, a team “difficult to beat and very competitive”, and He said they have already made it clear in their journey that they do not “care” about the opponent they face.“It’s a lot, but obviously it’s very important, they are Cup semifinals, the second in 32 years and it’s going to be special and that’s how we take it, that’s how hobby feels. I’m proud and excited and with many positive things, but conscious that there is still a lot to achieve the final goal, “Alguacil said Wednesday asking if it was the most important game of the last 30 years.The coach ‘txuri urdin’ asked not to fall into relaxation and warned that playing against a LaLiga SmartBank rival is no less important than doing it against Real Madrid. “It’s quite the opposite, it’s up a step,” he said. “We do not care about the opponent, we have shown it throughout the Cup. They are semifinals and before a team that has eliminated three ‘First’ and making nine goals. We both play a lot and we will have to make a great game to try to get on track the tie. “The Gipuzkoan sees his “supermotivated players” before this appointment and said he does not look at what has been done so far. “I try to forget all that, which is difficult, because what has brought us here has not been what can be or can come, but to face the next game with the intention of winning it,” he said.“We know what we play, but we have to forget what is at stake and leave with the intention of being better, generate more chances and win the game,” said Alguacil, who recalled that the tie “is 180 minutes “and that he” only “thinks of the first leg.In addition, he demanded maximum attention before the Mirandés. “Do you remember the 80? That is all said,” he replied in relation to the quarterfinals of that season in which the Royal Society was eliminated by Castilla, a subsidiary of Real Madrid and subsequent runner-up. “The fans will be vital, we hope that the atmosphere is even greater than in the derby,” continued the realistic coach, who is without nerves for these semifinals. “The derby has been the best medicine to sleep well,” he joked about it.Del Mirandés, stressed that “it doesn’t matter whether it is League, Cup or face ‘First’, is always very recognizable, brave, determined and with very good people from midfield up.” “Although it does not have a very large staff, it is supporting the entire load admirably. It is difficult to beat and is always competitive, it is here on its own merits,” he said.Opposite, the Real could have two of its assigned youth players like Merquelanz and Guridi, and a Gipuzkoan technician like Andoni Iraola. “It is terrible, all year long wishing that the Mirandés win for the ceded. It is a club with which we have a very good relationship and that we like tremendously. It will be special and emotional, also for them, and I hope you enjoy it , who do what they are doing regularly, but do not exceed qualifying, “he confessed.Sheriff also made it clear that given the current level of his team it is “better” to play the first leg at the Reale Arena. “The team is scoring and the fan is excited and with the high of the derby,” he admitted, while noting that he does not care to fit except if that causes “doubt in attack.”On the great moment of the Swedish Alexander Isak, the coach of the San Sebastian team preferred to focus on the quality of the squad. “In the first weeks we talked about Willy (Willian José), Odegaard, sometimes Oyarzabal. Now Isak is his sweet moment and that is good because he says that there is a lot of quality within the team. It is a very good moment and the team is benefiting, but it would not come if the rest of the team was not so good. The moments are there to take advantage of them, “he saidlast_img read more

How Mobile Phones can Transform Health, Education and Agriculture in Liberia

first_imgDigital technology is transforming the world, and Liberia can use this technology for tremendous purposes of wellbeing in almost all the sectors that drive the Liberian Economy. Out of some of the highly advanced digital technologies, mobile phone can present HealthCare, education and agriculture sectors in Liberia with unprecedented opportunities to run their operations and provide the chance for Liberia to leap ahead in a way that was unimaginable just a few years ago. This article is the first of a three part series detailing how the mobile phone can be a key transforming agent in the future of HealthCare, Education and Agriculture in Liberia. In this article we will discuss how the mobile phone can transform HeathCare in Liberia.The mobile phone is a strong contender in fundamentally transforming the future of health and healthcare in Liberia. There are now more than 1.5 million cell phone users in Liberia[1]. Liberia now has a pathway to reach the population who were unreached earlier, and deliver health services directly to people rather than just in health facilities.Liberia’s healthcare sector is severely short of healthcare resource constraints, equipment and drugs[2]. In such a country with severe resource constraints, mobile phones can be a major boon as it can empower both patients as well as healthcare practitioners (HCPs) by providing them with the necessary information required to make informed decisions about health issues such as timely monitoring of diseases, adequate health care provisions and making health living choices.As mobile phones have reached much deeper into Liberia than any other technology, it can help in supporting diagnosis, make collection of health data easier as well as advance research and education in the remotest and resource-poor regions of Liberia.The rapid penetration of mobile phones in the country provides good opportunity to reach those segments of the population who are currently left out because of distance and lack of communication, using ‘mHealth’ (mobile health) programs.Health centers in Liberia face difficulties getting the required medical supplies and drugs they need to treat patients. As a result, a large number of Liberians are plagued with preventable and treatable diseases. The mHealth programs can help overcome these infrastructure challenges and can help health workers to collect and disseminate logistics.Apart from helping patients, mobile phones can also prove helpful to health care providers in Liberia. The mobile phones can empower health care providers to provide high quality of patient care. Due to the shortage of healthcare facilities in Liberia, many Liberians have to wait for weeks and even months to get a physician’s appointment. With the adoption of mobile phones, healthcare facilities can remotely connect, interact and monitor with thousands of patients.In addition, there are several mobile apps that offer quick access to medical research from mobile devices to physicians. These apps can help doctors better understand the health of patients and provide improved care for the patients. Such apps are now being used by several countries in Africa. In Kenya, there is Child-Count, a SMS-based system that allows health care workers to register and treat children with acute malnutrition and diarrhea. By integrating healthcare with such mobile technology, Kenya aims to end poverty and reach the UN Millennium Development Goals by 2015.The use of mobile phone can transform the entire health care system of Liberia by allowing doctors to deliver higher quality patient care and can ensure that more people in Liberia receive better care.
