Two falls, yes, very painful, because they were in Champions. The first, in the quarters of the 2014-15 season (the goal of Chicharito). The second, 3-0 in the first leg of the semifinals of the 2016-17 campaign, which left those of Simeone almost KO despite the attempt of feat in the second leg.Griezmann has scored only four goals in his 13 visits to the Bernabéu, but he got a lot of juice.

Pro Unlimited was also named as a defendant in the case.Scola was at the company for nine months, and eventually developed symptoms of fatigue, insomnia, and social anxiety, before being formally diagnosed with PTSD.The suit claims that her PTSD symptoms may be triggered “when she touches a computer mouse, enters a cold building, watches violence on television, hears loud noises, or is startled.” “Her symptoms are also triggered when she recalls or describes graphic imagery she was exposed to as a content moderator,” the claim reads.Scola’s lawyer Steve Williams, of Joseph Saveri Law Firm, said in a statement that his client wants Facebook to set up a medical monitoring fund to provide testing and care to content moderators with PTSD.“Facebook needs to mitigate the harm to content moderators today and also take care of the people that have already been traumatized.”“Facebook needs to mitigate the harm to content moderators today and also take care of the people that have already been traumatized,” he added.Another lawyer on the case, Korey Nelson of the law firm of Burns Charest LLP, added, “Facebook is ignoring its duty to provide a safe workplace and instead creating a revolving door of contractors who are irreparably traumatized by what they witnessed on the job.”As of June, Facebook employs 7,500 content reviewers across the world, a number that it’s doubling this year to 20,000. The company uses a mix of full-time employees, contractors and companies to take care of the thousands of posts which need to be reviewed every day. Facebook’s director of corporate communications, Bertie Thomson, said in a statement via email that the company is “currently reviewing this claim,” and that it recognizes that “this work can often be difficult.” “That is why we take the support of our content moderators incredibly seriously, starting with their training, the benefits they receive, and ensuring that every person reviewing Facebook content is offered psychological support and wellness resources,” the statement added.Thomson pointed to the in-house counsellors and other wellness resources it provides to employees, which it detailed in a post on the company’s blog.last_img read more
