Thirty years of the fateful penalties of Pucela in Monaco

first_imgThese days television channels try to liven up the quarantine by replacing important games in the history of our country, such as 12-1 in Malta or the 2010 World Cup final against the Netherlands. In a blanquivioleta key, perhaps if one had to choose one, the fans could choose one of which an ephemeris has been celebrated these days: the day that Real Valladolid caressed a semi-final in European competition.On March 20, 1990, Pucela disputed the Recopa quarter-final return against Monaco, a match that came with 0-0 first leg and with the illusions intact., after eliminating Maltese Hamrun and Swedish Djugardens in the previous rounds, despite the fact that in the league the team led by Fernando Redondo flirted with the relegation places, of which he had just left thanks to the victory in Malaga (0-1). Good defense was key to keeping the Monegasque team at bay, which tried by all means with an attack led by a George Weah who had just landed in European football. Despite his attempts and those of the Argentine striker Ramón Díaz, as in Zorrilla, Ravnic’s goal remained untouched in the regulation 90 minutes … and in overtime, in which exhaustion prevented Real Valladolid from approaching Arsène Wenger’s area.In the penalty shootout the blanquivioletas were unable to get the pass. Janko Jankovic missed the first pitch, Albis scored the second and Moya ran into the wood. Ayarza, the last person in charge of throwing, did not hit the mark either, and Monaco, more successful in the supreme luck, was awarded the pass to the next round, in which he would end up being discharged by Sampdoria, in the end Recopa champion.Three decades after that, the echoes of the ‘Euro-Pucela’ can still be heard, arising from the voices of those who lived through this elimination (reaped without a single defeat) and who enjoyed the latest continental participation in the 1997 season years later. -98. Again, as on the previous occasion, the team fell under the orders of their third coach, this time Sergio Kresic. He did it against Spartak Moscow, in the UEFA Cup, in the round of 32.last_img read more

Family Court finally operational

first_img– commences hearingsThe much anticipated Family Court has finally commenced operations and is currently hearing cases.Acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Carl Singh, announced on Tuesday in statement that the Family Division of the High Court has been established and began hearing cases since May 6, 2016.It has been almost five years since the Family Court building was completed and handed over to Government. Works were ongoing for over seven years to have the Family Court established and in operation, but this was been constantly delayed over the past years.For almost a year, the delays were blamed on the acquisition of furniture and the hosting of Commissions of Inquiries (CoIs) at the building, located in the compound of the Georgetown Supreme Court, overlooking King Street.Then more recently, revision of the Rules of Law had caused the opening to push back. However, in February, Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams had laid over the completed Rules of Law, which will govern the practices and procedures of the Family Court. The rules were completed a while ago but some “necessary amendments” had to be made.The Chancellor acknowledged the numerous hurdles that had beset the functioning of the facility, noting that the Supreme Court will treat those as lessons learnt.The Family Court will hear and determine all proceedings which touch and concern family matters. The procedure of the Family Court will be governed by the Family (Proceedings and Procedure) Rules 2016 (FPPR).The main applications that could be made to the Court are for divorce, custody and access, division of property, maintenance, guardianship, parentage orders including paternity orders, protection of children, wardship, variation of an existing order and breach of orders. The Court is meant to encourage dispute resolution, including alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and therefore will facilitate a participatory approach to problem solving so that family disputes can be dealt with justly and expeditiously while ensuring the welfare of family members, especially children.The Family Court will be presided over by two judges. However, the FPPR will be applied by Judges who are assigned to the Berbice and Essequibo jurisdictions of the High Court where the Court shall receive and hear applications at the New Amsterdam and Suddie High Courts respectively.The Court has its own registry for receiving applications in family matters and includes a child friendly space in the form of a Children’s Waiting Room for parties who are required to attend the Court. The well trained staff of this new registry are geared to provide a customer friendly process for persons who attend at the registry and the Court.The Court will work in close liaison with the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) in matters affecting the welfare of children. In addition, it is expected that parties to family court matters will utilise the Mediation Centre of the High Court.Justice Singh expressed appreciation to the Government of Guyana; the United Nations Children’s Fund; the Government and people of Canada, as well as its diplomatic representatives in Georgetown, for the support readily given to the training of Judges and support staff in the anticipated work of the Family Court.last_img read more

COUNCILLOR DEMANDS WE GIVE THE ROAD TO ‘ABSOLUTE GLUT’ OF ROAD SIGNAGE

first_imgA Donegal county councillor has slammed the “absolute glut” of signage which has been erected on The N56 road.One of the “absolute glut” of road signs in Donegal.Cllr Seamus O Domhnaill said there are no less than 119 signs between Creeslough and Dunfanaghy.He says Donegal County Council must now take stock of the signs and reduce them if necessary. The signs include speed signs, directional signage and general distance signage but there are also now tourism related signage including Wild Atlantic Way signs as well as road number signage.Speaking earlier today Cllr.Ó Domhnaill said he very much welcomed the Wild Atlantic Way Initiative and the Tourism numbers which this will generate.But he stated “It does leave us in a situation whereby between Creeslough and Dunfanaghy there is approximately 119 posts carrying various signs erected by Donegal County Council or the NRA.“This amount of signage in my opinion is absolutely ludicrous and I firmly believe that with a little bit of foresight this number could be greatly reduced”. He added that this comes at a time when the Council are expending large amounts of money putting services such as electricity and telecoms underground yet they are erecting multiple amount of poles for signage throughout the County.Ó Domhnaill further commented that “I fully understand that there is a need for information signage. But when we see that the NRA and Board faílte carried out a review and erected new signage last year and we see a further €400,000 spent on Wild Atlantic Way signage this year, which leaves in a situation that between the villages of Gortahork & Dunfanaghy there are in excess of 130 signs erected by the State.“Surely this number could be reduced with a bit of joined up thinking”. Along with these signs there are of course private signage for businesses as well as contour corner signage which is also erected by the Council. Because of the sheer volume of signage on our county’s roads there is no doubt but that they are causing distraction and confusion to motorists using our roads.”In concluding Ó Domhnaill called on Donegal County Council to carry out an inventory of all the signage erectd by the Council and NRA on the Counties National Primary and Secondary roads with a view of reducing the number of signs whilst still delivering the message which is intended.“I find it strange that the Wild Atlantic Way signage wasn’t incorporated within existing signage in an attempt to promote safety and of course save tax payers money. “I wil be raising this matter at our next Council meeting to ensure that a proper process is put in place before the County is totally over run with Council signs.”COUNCILLOR DEMANDS WE GIVE THE ROAD TO ‘ABSOLUTE GLUT’ OF ROAD SIGNAGE was last modified: April 11th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cllr Seamus O DomhnaillCreesloughdonegalDunfanaghyN56Wild Atlantic Waylast_img read more
