first_imgWith almost total security, Valverde will not continue the next campaign Xavi Hernández gives orders as coach of Al Sadd. Image: Getty If Xavi Hernández does not accept, he will become the number one candidate next summer. What seems certain is that Ernesto Valverde will not continue next season and even more after the defeat in the Spanish Super Cup against Atlético de Madrid.Al Sadd sees Xavi at Barça but not “today” Al Sadd came to the news of a meeting this Friday of Barça with Xavi Hernández, coach of the Qatari team, and acknowledged being aware that the future of Catalan is on the bench of Camp Nou but not “today”, since the former Barça is now focused on his work in Doha.“That Xavi goes to Barcelona is normal and expected because it is his club and his first home, and he will return in the future. But today, Xavi is Al Sadd’s coach,” said team principal Turki Al-Ali , in an official statement on the club’s website.“Xavi and his coaching staff are focused on tomorrow’s game against Al Rayyan. We know that a club in the Barça category will use official channels to discuss issues of this size,” the statement from the Qatari team added, urging the Catalans to negotiate formally if they have decided to do without Ernesto Valverde now or at the end of the season.Xavi has only been a coach for a few months, since last July, when he said that, despite his desire to return to Barça, he needs an apprenticeship after his retirement as a player. “I have always said, it would be an objective and an illusion to train Barça, but it is very soon, I do not feel prepared. Al Sadd is a good opportunity to gain experience,” said Tarrasa.center_img Ernesto Valverde is sentenced.

LAX hotels lodge protest

Posted on by

first_imgThe latest proposal would require hotels near city-owned Los Angeles International Airport to pay wages of $9.39 an hour with health benefits or $10.64 an hour without benefits by July 1. In return, the city promised to make $1 million in streetscape improvements, spend $50,000 on marketing, and study other ways to improve the area, such as building a conference center. The hotels and business community have been upset with the proposal, which extends the concept of a living wage beyond firms that contract directly with the city. However, officials have argued that the hotels benefit by their proximity to LAX and the city’s investments in the area. rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He also noted that the law prohibits adoption of a law with only minor changes – which he contends is the case with the latest proposal. “It may be natural to believe that simply by adding features, one can change the essence of an ordinance, but not in the referendum process,” Kieffer said. But Richard McCracken, an attorney working with the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy in support of the proposal, disputed Kieffer’s assertions. “Los Angeles is a charter city and the provisions he is discussing do not apply,” McCracken said. “Los Angeles is able to make its own regulations on issues like this.” Garcetti said he had no comment on the letter, which will be referred to the City Attorney’s Office for review. An attorney representing LAX-area hotels said Friday that a newly crafted “living-wage” ordinance impacting hotel workers was simply a ruse by the City Council to avert a costly election on the original plan. Attorney George Kieffer, whose firm represents several of the dozen hotels along the Century Boulevard corridor, released a four-page letter he wrote to council President Eric Garcetti objecting to the proposed ordinance. The compromise was released Thursday and will be considered by the council next week. “The law is clear that, where a qualified referendum petition has been submitted to the City Council and the City Council have voted to repeal the ordinance, the City Council may not simply once again adopt the original ordinance,” Kieffer’s letter said. last_img read more

Cancer claims area lawman

Posted on by

first_imgPASADENA – Sgt. Randy Rousseau, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, died May 2 after what family and friends called a courageous three-year battle with leukemia. He was 44. “It’s very hard to lose someone you grew up with,” said Deputy Keith Gibbons, 43, Rousseau’s longtime friend and partner. “We went through everything together from the time we were rookie cops up through the ranks.” Rousseau went in and out of remission three times before the disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia, which is most often found in children, claimed his life May 2, Gibbons said. He left active duty a second time after being transferred from his post at the Pitchess Detention Center to Crescenta Valley Station to treat the cancer about a year ago, Lt. Mike Bornman said. “You could see that he was hurting at times,” said Bornman, referring to the disease’s effect on Rousseau, “but he never complained. He fought like hell to live. It was tragic.” Most recently, he appeared to be recovering successfully from a bone marrow transplant undertaken at the City of Hope on Dec. 13, Gibbons said. “The headaches came back and became more acute for about a week before he slipped into a coma,” Gibbons said. “He never woke up.” Rousseau, who lived in unincorporated southeast Pasadena on Blanche Street, worked the graveyard shift with Gibbons at the sheriff’s Altadena Station from 1990 through 1993, among other assignments, Gibbons said. “He was an outstanding officer,” Gibbons said, noting his partner’s work on a mid-1990s case solved largely by Rousseau in which a father had murdered, then buried, two young sons. “The man’s 9-year-old son trusted Randy enough that he led him to a grave,” he said. About 300 sworn officers and civilian colleagues from around the region attended Rousseau’s service, according to Bornman. The sergeant leaves his wife Rebecca, 38, and three sons, Rory, 14, Jacob, 10, Joseph, 6. Gibbons said due to the great outpouring of financial support from the community since he was diagnosed,the Rousseau family asked that in lieu of flowers,donations be made to the Sheriff’s Relief Foundation, Survivors and Dependents Fund. mary.gurton@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300 Ext. 4461160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Southampton snap up Inter Milan midfielder on loan

Posted on by

first_imgSouthampton have continued their rebuilding process by signing Inter Milan creative midfielder Saphir Taïder.The Algerian international, 22, has joined on a season-long loan, while Saints flop Dani Osvaldo has moved in the opposite direction on the same basis.Both transfers have independent options which allow either club to make the moves permanent next summer.French-born Taïder played in two of Algeria’s games at the World Cup, including their narrow last-16 defeat to eventual champions Germany.Southampton boss Ronald Koeman said: “It’s part of our philosophy for the club to bring in talented young players who like to learn and develop themselves, and that’s true of Saphir.“First of all, he is a talented football player. He’s 22 and has already played for Algeria at the World Cup. I’ve spoken to him about the positions he can play in, and it was a good meeting because he showed me real ambition.“He can play as a controlled midfielder, but he can also move up around the box and up front, which is a good thing for a coach or manager because it brings more possibilities to the players in the team. He brings competition to the squad.“He can still learn some things, so we will train him and develop him this season. Over the course of the year, we will then make a decision about the future of the player.“He’s ten days into his pre-season, so he needs to be in better physical shape but we’ll give him training and he will be ready for the kick-off.“He will start training tomorrow morning and, depending on how he does over the next few days, we will see whether he will take part in the friendly on Saturday. I will make that decision on Friday.” 1 New Southampton midfielder last_img read more

Scientists: Who Can You Believe?

Posted on by

first_imgScientists form a kind of knowledge priesthood in our modern world, but when long-taught principles get overturned, it raises questions on what scientists really know.Windy geology:  Wind is a more powerful force for eroding mountains than previously thought.  University of Arizona quoted Paul Kapp, an associate professor of geosciences at U of A saying, “No one had ever thought that wind could be this effective.  You won’t read in a textbook that wind is a major process in terms of breaking down rock material.”    According to the press release, “Bedrock in Central Asia that would have formed mountains instead was sand-blasted into dust” called loess that forms large sedimentary deposits.  Looking at the extent of the Loess Plateau south of the Gobi Desert, the largest deposit of wind-blown sediment known, Kapp calculated that wind can be just as effective as rivers and glaciers in wearing down mountains.Sabertooth vegan unicorn:  A fossil of a very strange beast called Tiarajudens has been found in Brazil with 5-inch-long, dagger like teeth, resembling those of a sabertooth cat.  This dog-size animal, though, was apparently vegetarian.  PhysOrg said archaeologists found it, but they probably meant paleontologists; National Geographic News showed an artist reconstruction of it baring its teeth in a fierce pose.    One of the discoverers remarked that it “looks like a combination of different animals, and it takes some time to believe it when you see this animal in front of you.”  Usually, dagger-like canines are marks of carnivores.  Did these animals use them to hunt plants?  Or did they intimidate rivals or scare off predators?  No one knows.  National Geographic speculated, “The answer may lie in evolutionary experimentation,” a statement that implicitly personifies evolution.    Jorg Frobish, commenting on the fossil in Science,1 said that synapsids like Tiarajudens have been “historically but erroneously known as ‘mammal-like reptiles’” – another reversal from what many textbooks and TV documentaries have called them.    In this specimen, “the degree of heterodonty (tooth differentiation) in Tiarajudens is remarkable.”  Saber teeth are “exceedingly uncommon in herbivorous forms,” he added, saying the teeth in Tiarajudens are “extraordinary”.  What does this mean for our understanding of fossil teeth?These findings raise a question: When is a saber tooth a saber tooth, and when is it a tusk or simply an enlarged canine?  The existing literature is quite imprecise, but saber teeth tend to be laterally compressed, whereas tusks tend to be rather round in cross section and continuously growing, such as in modern elephants, wild boars, and walruses.  Finally, the distinction of saber teeth and tusks from ordinary large canines appears to be vague and primarily based on length.  Tiarajudens seems to further blur this distinction, since anomodonts evolved both approaches (saber teeth and tusks) to enlarge their canines, even though they might have had similar functions, such as deterring predators and intraspecific display or combat.Frobish and the authors of the paper in Science2 mentioned evolution often, but only in respect to their belief that these animals evolved.  For instance, Cisneros et al said, “This discovery provides new insight into the evolution of heterogeneous dentition in therapsids and broadens our understanding of ecological interactions at the end of the Paleozoic.”  That, however, does not explain how or why saberteeth evolved in this particular animal.  They admitted that “The function of the saber teeth is unknown, but probable uses include deterring attack from predators and intraspecific display or combat.”    Evolutionists would have expected such derived features to evolve much later, not 260 million years ago.  Will they ever know without being able to watch the animals in action?  Whatever evolutionists have to say about it now, they clearly did not predict finding saber teeth so early.  Cisneros told Live Science it was “like finding a unicorn,” it was so bizarre.  “You see it, but you don’t believe it.”Early Americans:  The Clovis culture was supposed to represent the oldest human presence in North America, but now stone-tool evidence of “paleo-Indians” has been found in Texas at a level said to be 2,500 years older.  PhysOrg said this discovery is “rewriting what anthropologists know about when the first inhabitants arrived in North America.”  Michael Walters [Texas A&M] said, “This discovery challenges us to re-think the early colonization of the Americas.”A search on PhysOrg for the phrase “previously believed” turned up 2,640 results; “once thought” produced 3,860 results.1.  Jorg Frobisch, “Paleontology: On Dental Occlusion and Saber Teeth,” Science, 25 March 2011: Vol. 331 no. 6024 pp. 1525-1528, DOI: 10.1126/science.1204206.2.  Cisneros, Abdala, Rubridge, Dentzien-Dias and Bueno, “Dental Occlusion in a 260-Million-Year-Old Therapsid with Saber Canines from the Permian of Brazil,” Science, 25 March 2011: Vol. 331 no. 6024 pp. 1603-1605, DOI: 10.1126/science.1200305.Oh, but they KNOW evolution is a FACT.  Considering stories like these, on what grounds are we supposed to give the priesthood of scientists such epistemic priority that their opinions matter by default more than those of any other honest scholar in any other field of knowledge?    After all, scientists are not the only ones interested in finding the truth about nature.  When aspects of that truth are inaccessible to empirical observation, such as the history of the world, and when their stories keep changing so drastically and so often, it would seem other honest truth seekers should have a place in the discussion.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
