The law allows Madrid to sign Camavinga at 17 years old

admin No Comments

first_img2. The following three exceptions are allowed:b) The transfer is made within the territory of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) and the player is between 16 and 18 years of age. The new club must meet the following minimum obligations:i. Provide the player with adequate football training or training that corresponds to the best national standards. There is another fact that is decisive for Camavinga to be a good option for Madrid. Last November he obtained French nationality. Of Angolan origin, the midfielder arrived in the neighboring country at the age of six, accompanied by his parents. Now, not only can be summoned by Deschamps for the absolute team (he has already played a game with the U21), but also he would not occupy an extra-community position in a squad, that of Real Madrid, loaded with them: now Vinicius, Reinier, Rodrygo, Militao, Kubo … ii. In addition to football training or training, guarantee the player academic or school training, or training or education and training according to their vocation, that allows them to start a non-football career in the event that they cease their professional player activity.iii. Take all necessary measures to ensure that the player is assisted in the best possible way (optimal living conditions in a family or in club accommodation, provision of a tutor in the club, etc.).center_img The FIFA Players Transfer Statute, the standard by which all international football must be governed, allows Real Madrid to sign Camavinga before he turns 18 (in the next month of November). For this reason, for example, Rainier, Vinicius and Rodrygo were unable to complete their transfer until they reached that age. This statute, in section IV (Transfer of minor players) it is limited to the prohibition of the international transfer of minors under 18 years of age. But it establishes several caveats. One favors Madrid in the case of Camavinga.last_img read more

South American leaders announce new regional bloc

admin No Comments

first_imgA group of South American leaders have signed a declaration creating a regional bloc of nations that they say is open to any country, regardless of ideology, to collaborate on solving regional problems.Presidents from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru attended a summit on Friday in Santiago, Chile where the declaration was signed.Chilean President Sebastian Pinera and Colombia’s Ivan Duque had led the push for the new political grouping after more than half the members of the previous regional bloc, UNASUR, left last year, saying it had failed to take action on Venezuela.Argentina, Brazil and Colombia are among the members of the new blocThe new seven-nation bloc, known as Prosur will have “a firm and clear commitment to democracy, freedom and a respect for human rights,” according to Pinera who spoke at a press conference during the summit.In a tweet on Friday, Pinera said the forum would allow South American countries to “move together towards better freedom, integration and development”.The Venezuela questionVenezuelan President Nicolás Maduro was not among the leaders invited to meet in Santiago on Friday, prompting some leaders to criticise the organisers who invited Venezuelan Opposition Leader Juan Guaido instead.Guaido is recognised by all of Prosur’s members and several other countries as Venezuela’s legitimate interim-president until new elections can be held, following the controversy surrounding the reelection of Maduro in May 2018. Guaido declared himself interim president in January in a move Maduro described as an attempted coup.Guaido did not attend the summit, nor send a representative as had been expected.Also absent were Bolivian President Evo Morales – a close ally of Maduro – and Uruguay’s President Tabare Vazquez. Uruguay had, along with Mexico been urging regional powers to work with the Maduro Administration to find a solution to Venezuela’s multiple crises, but changed gear in February, calling for new elections.Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman, reporting from Santiago, said Prosur was already facing criticism from some who see it as a right-wing rebranding of Unasur.“There are a lot of people of think that the point of Prosur, at least in the short term, is to be yet another forum, another mechanism for putting pressure on Maduro and forcing him out of power.“A lot of people who are even critical of Maduro say that this organisation, rather than favouring and defending multilateralism, seems to be playing into this new right-wing populist wave in the region,” she said. “They say it must be pluralistic because governments change, but institutions should not”.Unasur was created in 2008 when the leftist populism advocated by Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chávez was at its strongest in South America, but in recent years, the bloc has been paralysed by divisions as centre-right governments have risen to power.

DONEGAL HOTELIER IN TALKS WITH BANKS OVER €78M DEBTS

admin No Comments

first_imgA property investment firm owned by veteran Donegal hotelier Jim McGettigan, is in crisis talks with AIB about its €78 million borrowings after a repayment deadline expired, it has emerged.Loans to the Bonnington Group were due to be renewed or repaid by six weeks ago, but the date passed without a renewal being agreed.Mr McGettigan’s group warned that it would ‘‘cease to be a going concern’’ if it could not renew its banking facilities with AIB or find a new source of funding. The directors of Bonnington, which has hotels and other properties in Ireland, Britain and Dubai, said they ‘‘expect that a formal renewal of the facility will be agreed’’ with AIB.The bank holds a legal charge over the group’s properties and the assets of four group companies, as well as an ‘‘unlimited cross company guarantee’’ to several other firms.Bonnington’s interests include the Regency and North Star hotels in Dublin ,the Royal Hotel in Bray, the Hotel Cavendish and Bonnington Rooms in London, and Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers in Dubai.Mr McGettigan, 73, is also developing a 300-bed four-star hotel and business park at Gillette Corner in west London. According to new accounts, Bonnington had turnover of 2.4 million in the nine months to the end of 2009, and made a loss of 3 million.The company said the losses were due to loan impairments, exchange rate fluctuations, interest costs on the Gillette Corner development and losses ‘‘following an abortive project in Glasgow’’.However, the accounts do not include the results from the group’s interests in Dubai, which include land at Jumeirah Village. It was intended for a large commercial and residential scheme, but Bonnington pulled back from the project in 2008 and put the site on the market. It is considering plans for the land ‘‘with a view to generating operating profits’’.Self-made millionaire Mr McGettigan started off as a waiter and his highly respected in the county of his birth.In the 2007 Sunday Times rich list he was estimated to be worth €360M.

Better late than never for Penn State

admin No Comments

first_imgMIAMI – This really was one for the ages. For more than four hours, Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden paced the Orange Bowl sidelines, searching for offense and enduring one missed kick after another. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Paterno said he didn’t want the game to be about him and the 76-year-old Bowden, who rank 1-2 in career coaching victories. It turned out to be about missed opportunities, improbable twists – and epic length. Given two earlier chances to win the game, Kelly missed field goal attempts of 29 and 38 yards. Paterno calmly patted the freshman’s back after the second miss, then sent him onto the field on second down for the winning kick. Florida State counterpart Gary Cismesia missed an extra point in the first half and field goal tries of 44 and 38 yards in overtime. “Sometimes you miss at the wrong time,” Bowden said. “Joe was having that problem for a while.” The No. 3 Nittany Lions finished 11-1, with the only loss coming when they gave up a touchdown to Michigan on the game’s final play. The season represented a big rebound for Paterno’s program, which went 7-16 in 2003-04. No. 22 Florida State fell to 8-5, Bowden’s worst season since 1981. Moments after the game ended, the two old friends came together and stood shoulder to shoulder in a crush of cameras and microphones to exchange warm words. “No animosity. No animosity. I mean that,” Bowden said. “Both teams played so hard,” Paterno said. “Both teams played as well as they could play,” Bowden said. In a bowl season that started before Christmas and has included plenty of lackluster affairs, this one was worth staying up for. And it served as a perfect warmup to the biggest game yet: No. 1 USC vs. No. 2 Texas tonight in the Rose Bowl. Florida State mostly contained Big Ten most valuable player Michael Robinson, who threw a touchdown pass with six seconds left in the first half but was limited to 253 yards passing and 21 rushing. He hit two clutch completions to give Penn State a chance to win the game in regulation. But Kelly, hampered by a shaky hold, was wide left on a 29-yard field goal attempt with 35 seconds left. Cismesia kicked a 48-yard field goal with 4:08 left in regulation to tie the game at 16, but on the first series of overtime he was wide right on a 44-yard attempt. Then it was Kelly’s turn. He again pushed a try wide left, this time a 38-yarder with a perfect hold. Austin Scott’s 1-yard run put Penn State ahead. B.J. Dean pulled the Seminoles even with a 1-yard scoring run. After Cismesia’s 38-yard attempt hit the right upright, Kelly finally came through. The kick gave Paterno his 354th career win, second in Division I-A only to Bowden’s 359. Paterno improved to 7-1 against Bowden. The only loss came the last time they met, when Florida State beat Penn State in the 1990 Blockbuster Bowl – also at Miami. With his first win in the Orange Bowl since 1974, Paterno improved to 21-10-1 in bowl games. Both offenses spent much of the game going backward, but there were fireworks, too. Ethan Kilmer made a leaping 24-yard scoring reception with six seconds left in the first half to give Penn State a 14-13 halftime lead. The Seminoles scored two touchdowns in 80 seconds – on an Orange Bowl-record 87-yard punt return by Willie Reid, and on a 57-yard reception by Lorenzo Booker. But they totaled only six first downs before Drew Weatherford drove them 65 yards for the tying field goal late in the fourth quarter. Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny, the Butkus Award winner, appeared to hurt his right knee during the drive and was carted off the field. Tony Hunt, a 1,047-yard rusher for Penn State, departed in the first quarter with a left ankle injury. Replacement Scott ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns. The teams punted 20 times. In the second half, they swapped eight possessions before either made a first down – on a pass-interference penalty. Defense produced the first score of the half. Weatherford, working from his end zone, was called for intentional grounding – a safety – when Penn State’s Jim Shaw forced a throw. Leading 16-13, the Nittany Lions had a chance to take control with nine minutes left. But on first-and-goal at the 4, Florida State recovered a botched snap. The Seminoles netted 26 yards rushing and were penalized 129 yards. Despite the lack of punch, they stayed in the game thanks to two big plays. They trailed 7-0 when Reid weaved up the middle on a runback, cut left and dashed to the end zone. The punt return broke the Orange Bowl record of 80 yards by former Florida State athletic director Cecil “Hootie” Ingram for Alabama in 1953. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Picture Special: Huge number of secondary school students attend Careers Fair in Ballybofey

admin No Comments

first_imgJackson’s Hotel in Ballybofey was the excellent venue for the annual Careers Fair organised by the Donegal Branch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors.Approximately 1500 students from all the secondary schools across Co Donegal attended throughout the day where up to 40 further and higher education institutions from across Ireland and the UK gathered to inform the students on the myriad of options available to them after their Leaving Certificate. The Finn Suite in Jackson’s was a hive of activity as the eager masses collected their pamphlets, prospectuses (as well as the odd free pen!) from the universities and colleges.Questions were answered, details were taken and seeds were planted into the students’ minds in what was a hugely successful day.The event is the flagship day of the Donegal IGC calendar and has gone from strength to strength over the years and is testament to the amount of hard work being done in our schools by the Guidance Counsellors. A highlight this year was the large display of apprenticeships available from Donegal ETB.The event organisers, Mr Rory White Finn Valley College, Stranorlar, Ms Georgina White, St Columba’s College, Stranorlar and Ms Mairead Mc Gurren, Colaiste Colmcille, Ballyshannon would like to thank all the institutions for attending the event, Kelly, Claire, John and Dylan for their help and Rhonda, Hugh and the staff at Jackson’s Hotel.Picture Special: Huge number of secondary school students attend Careers Fair in Ballybofey was last modified: March 11th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:BallybofeyCAREERS FAIRCollegeLeaving certsecondary schoollast_img read more

Wikitude Breaks From the Pack; Releases Augmented Reality Browser API

Austrian AR browser maker Wikitude has taken a very competitive step this afternoon with the release of its Application Programming Interface (API) to power AR browsers on any other application.The company says its API “represents the emergence of an open AR development platform which could further drive the adoption of Wikitude as a potential standard for developers who want to create their own mobile AR experience.” Get ready to see Augmented Reality come to far more mobile applications and for Wikitude’s competitors to respond.Wikitude displays Wikipedia and user-contributed Points of Interest over the camera view of Android phones, over a Google map or in list form. Wikitude.me provides an easy way for anyone to add Points of Interest that are immediately available to Wikitude mobile users. The company has said in the past that it intends to put all of that data under a Creative Commons license. The new API will allow an Augmented Reality camera view to be added to any other Android application that contains geographic data. Hopefully an API will be available from iPhone apps when the next version of the iPhone operating system is released. (We’ve asked Wikitude about that.)Wikitude says it worked with more than 100 developers from 25 countries in building its API. Both commercial and non-commercial API keys are available to remove the watermark placed over non-keyed implementations. The API allows developers to customize the actions that occur when info-balloon overlays are clicked on and change the menu options for the AR browser.Will competitors like Layar, AcrossAir, Tochnidot, RobotVision and others release APIs soon as well? They have to be working on it, but Wikitude appears to have the most open disposition, one of the broadest developer communities and thus may be the best suited to become the AR platform of choice.There are enough players in the AR field already that the competition will likely come down to two things: usability of interfaces and developer-friendliness.

Facebook Now Shares Phone Number & Address With Third-Party Apps

admin No Comments

first_imgTags:#Facebook#privacy#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification mike melanson A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook recently announced on its developer blog that it will now be “making a user’s address and mobile phone number accessible as part of the User Graph object.” In other words, the site will now let third-party applications (think Farmville or that spammy app your friends keep falling for that promises to show them who is stalking them on Facebook) access your contact information. “Because this is sensitive information,” reads the announcement, “[…]permissions must be explicitly granted to your application by the user via our standard permissions dialogs.” Take a look at the example permission dialogs box, however, and tell us if you think this is enough. Update: Facebook has announced that it has suspended the controversial feature and will be “making changes to help ensure you only share this information when you intend to do so.”As All Facebook points out, there is very little here to call attention to the fact that Facebook would now be sharing something that it previously did not share. In this particular dialog box, it’s only one of two items, but many similar boxes contain more. “[Users] probably won’t notice the addition of the words ‘current address and mobile phone number’ to the text, and likely click ‘allow’ without noticing that they’re actually granting more access than ever before,” writes Jackie Cohen for All Facebook.Thankfully, this sort of information cannot be shared via your friends’ careless actions, unlike other profile information. According to Facebook’s blog post, “these permissions only provide access to a user’s address and mobile phone number, not their friend’s addresses or mobile phone numbers.” What do you think about Facebook sharing your phone number and address? Of course, the responsibility of actually sharing that information comes down to whether or not you click that “Allow” button, but is it visually distinct enough? Does it come down to the age old rule that if you don’t want it to be public, you don’t put it on the Internet? Or do you see this as Facebook selling out its users and betraying their trust?For a more in-depth analysis, take a look at “Facebook & Identity: The Continued Push Toward Becoming Your One True Login“.
