Ceballos: “I have not spoken to Zidane since I left”

first_imgArteta positive: “I got up in the morning and saw Arteta’s positive. We were quarantined. After the quarantine, there were players with symptoms, but we are all fine. They have not tested any of us.”He has said that Guardiola is the best coach: “It is what I think because I identify with his way of playing and at Arsenal in three months I have learned a lot with Mikel Arteta.”He also identifies with Setién: “Yes, because he has an associative game where they want to maintain high possession and reach the attack zone with many passes. I identify with that type of coach.”Turn to Barcelona ?: “No, all this does not mean that Madrid does not play like this, it has always been a more vertical game, but in 90% of the games they are in control of the game. With players like Modric and Isco it is impossible not to have possession” .Would you like to return to Real Madrid ?: “Hopefully. I now have a contract with Arsenal. I bet to come here because it was a strong plate. Right now in Madrid it is difficult to play with the players there. Now I focus on being important in a club.”Have you spoken to Zidane ?: “I haven’t spoken to Zidane since I left. It has to be difficult to wear a locker room with so many players. I don’t think Zidane talks to the loan players.”Do you speak to someone from Real Madrid ?: “I have had calls from Butragueño, José Ángel, club preparers, the medical service and players. When you arrive in Madrid you realize that it is a great club also in the human factor.” Dani Ceballos, Real Madrid player on loan at Arsenal, attended this Sunday at ‘El Partidazo ‘by Movistar and there he analyzed his feelings about his present and his football future. He assured that he has not spoken with Zidane since he left, that “hopefully” he can return to Madrid and that he is now “focused on being important in a club”.How is the confinement? “I’m taking it to the best of my ability. He’s being tough for being away from family. It’s different here because you can walk down the street with ease and go out for exercise once a day. It’s the norm here and you have to accept it “Are you leaving home ?: “I’ve been home and now the club has put us through training and I’m going to training camp individually. It’s the only thing I go out for.”last_img read more

Windward Road retain INSPORTS title

first_imgWindward Road captured the INSPORTS All-Age & Junior High Athletics Championships crown for a fourth straight year at the Stadium East field yesterday. The champions tallied 503 points to top the meet by a mere five points over rivals John Mills who ended on 498. Oral Whilby, coach of Windward Road, said he was very happy with his team’s performance because they had to fight very hard to win it. “We fought very hard for this victory because we only won it by five points,” said Whilby. “I must lift my hat off to my athletes and everyone involved because it was a very difficult victory,” he said. Windward Road trailed John Mills by 19.5 points entering yesterday’s final day of the three-day, but despite this, Whilby said he was always confident that they would have come out on top. “These athletes are champions and that champion spirit that they have in them just came to the fore at the right time and so they never panicked,” Whilby said. The top two were followed by Constant Spring (326), Swallowfield (211.50), Cockburn Gardens (206.50), Shortwood (204), New Day (198), Mico Practising (158), and Calabar (134).

Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgWastewater Management: to reduce the negative impacts of municipal wastewater effluent or storm-water effluent on human health and the environment, and improve the management of wastewater sludge. Roads: to improve road safety, mobility and sustainability; promote the rehabilitation of bridges, tunnels and other structures; and, support economic and community development. Shortline Railways: to help reduce congestion on highways and serve new freight customers by supporting the construction, rehabilitation and/or upgrading of tracks and structures for safe and efficient operations by shortline railways companies.Tourism: to construct or improve convention centres or exhibition hall-type facilities that increase the number of visitors to the community and the length and quality of their stay.Given that the deadline for applications is September 5th, my staff is already meeting with municipal staff throughout the riding to ensure they are well-prepared to seize this important opportunity, as well as other federal programs and services which can help them to better serve local residents. More information is available at: www.bcbuildingcanadafundcommunities.ca.And while municipalities are marking that date on their calendar, consumers may want to circle September 30th. That’s when the long-awaited National Do Not Call List (DNCL) will be launched. The DNCL is a service that will allow Canadians to reduce the number of unsolicited telemarketing calls they receive.Last December, pursuant to new federal legislation, the CRTC awarded a five-year contract to Bell Canada to operate the National DNCL. Currently, each telemarketer is required to maintain its own “do not call list”, for which you must register separately to reduce or avoid calls. With the DNCL, you will only have to register your Canadian telephone number on one list.The DNCL will be responsible for registering numbers, providing telemarketers with up-do-date versions of the National DNCL, and receiving consumer complaints about telemarketing calls. For more information go to: www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/dncl.htm.These are just two of the many new initiatives by our Conservative Government that will truly make a difference to individual Canadians and entire communities. The $272-million program, including $25-million for flood mitigation projects, will help small communities with mounting infrastructure pressures. I know that our local municipalities have long lists of projects to either rehabilitate aging roads and water and sewer systems or to ensure they can meet the growing needs of their community. Our Conservative Government, in cooperation with the Province of BC, is accepting applications from these smaller communities for the following types of projects:Drinking Water: to improve drinking water treatment and distribution systems and to protect drinking water sources, as well as increasing the number of households with access to safe drinking water.Advertisement MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.New Federal Programs for Municipalities and Consumers LaunchedThis week brings news of long-anticipated launch dates for one federal program to help our local municipalities and another to help protect the interests of consumers across Canada.- Advertisement -The application period officially began this week for the Building Canada Fund Communities Component here in British Columbia.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Kasey Stinson served as the bait, using his youthful GQ charisma to lure teenage girls to the rented house in a middle-class Glendale neighborhood. Stephen Stinson, his older cousin, lent his brains to run the operation. Together, they ran a prostitution and pornography ring, turning the Glendale house into a Girls-Gone-Wild-style set with girls as young as 15. Now, both cousins are in prison, convicted on sexual exploitation charges. “These guys were smart,” Glendale Police Department Detective Matt Irvine said. “They’re con men, they’re smooth talkers. They’re not Neanderthals, but they’re ruthless.” Kasey, now 21, and Stephen Stinson, now 40, rented the house on the 300 block of West Lomita Avenue in March 2004. It was two months after Stephen was paroled from state prison for the fourth time. They drove flashy cars – Kasey a BMW, Stephen a white Lincoln Town Car. The cars were included on expense sheets Stephen put together for their blossoming operation. They set up a hard-core porn Web site that included advertisements for call girl services. Kasey, 19 at the time, lured four young girls. He would turn on his charm, give them clothes, food and a place to sleep. Two other girls were from his old high school in the Pasadena area. Kasey had the reputation of throwing the best parties in high school – he’d invite the best-looking girls and charge the boys a cover charge to get in so it was natural for girls to come to parties at his new Glendale pad. “These weren’t parties in the sense that you and I think of,” Irvine said. “These parties were seductions, preludes to sex scenes. It would be Kasey and Stephen and a half-dozen girls. There would be music, drugs and alcohol. It looks like an MTV video, and then the clothes start coming off.” The high school girls would participate in the sex videos, but they weren’t involved in the prostitution, Irvine said. “They were like tourists to the whole thing,” Irvine said. “They went home every night to their families, then they’d play hooky from school and go back to the house in Glendale. “There’s a metaphor that if you put a frog in hot water he’ll jump out immediately, but if you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the temperature, he’ll cook. That’s what these guys did – they gradually turned up the temperature.” The runaways and foster children would answer phones, using scripts prepared by Stephen. They claimed to be an escort service, never mentioning sexual acts. But once in the street, Irvine said, they had a menu of options, ranging in price from $40 to $250. None of the prostitution took place in Glendale, Irvine said. Instead, the Stinsons would drive out to Sylmar, Hollywood, Pasadena or Pomona. Kasey Stinson kept the girls in line by giving with a mix of charm and tough love. He’d buy them food – taking them to places like McDonald’s – and give them clothes. But if they got out of line or didn’t earn enough money, he’d beat them viciously. On June 25, 2004, a neighbor on Lomita Avenue heard a fight coming from the Stinsons’ house and called police. When officers arrived, they found Kasey Stinson beating one of the girls. Three months after the Stinsons opened shop, the Glendale police shut it down. After a joint investigation involving multiple police agencies and the FBI, Kasey and Stephen Stinson were charged with sexual exploitation. Kasey was arrested in July. Stephen fled, and then turned himself in two weeks later. Kasey Stinson reached a plea agreement in April 2005, pleading guilty to charges of child exploitation in return for a lighter sentence – nearly 12 years in state prison. Stephen Stinson was convicted in December of eight counts related to child exploitation. In January, he was sentenced to 22 years in state prison – and Kasey Stinson was given an additional four years for lying under oath during his cousin’s trial. “The verdicts we got, the plea and conviction we got, we owe a lot of that to the girls, their willingness to tell the truth about some really painful and humiliating things,” Irvine said.
