El Albacete dismisses Ramis and signs Lucas Alcaraz

first_imgThe poor dynamics of results of Albacete has cost Luis Miguel Ramis the job as coach of the Manchego team. Albacete has not won in the League since November 16 and this bad trajectory has produced that the white equipment has fallen to the positions of descent. The Manchego team has already chosen their substitute: Lucas Alcaraz, who signs until the end of the season. He will debut on Sunday against Ponferradina. The new coach of Albacete will begin in his position from Wednesday with the aim of straightening the course of the Manchego team and trying to move away from the descent and approach the goal set at the beginning of the season, enter ascent playoff positions. Alcaraz, which will be presented tomorrow, Tuesday, February 4 at 5 p.m. in the press room of Carlos Belmonte, will be accompanied by his second, Jesús Cañadas. They will complete the technical body Alberto Piernas as physical trainer and Carlos Cano as goalkeeper trainer.In his career Lucas Alcaraz has directed Granada, Recreativo de Huelva, Racing de Santander, Xerez, Real Murcia, achieving promotion to First Division, Córdoba, Almería, Aris de Thessaloniki, Levante, Elche, selection of Algeria and Real Zaragoza. and he is even the coach who has directed more games in Spain with more than 750 and with 25 consecutive seasons in professional football. The Andalusian coach, who has been seen on occasion in recent weeks in the Carlos Belmonte witnessing matches of the white team, arrives in La Mancha lands with the aim of achieving salvation with Albacete and keep leaving the white club in professional football.Ramis, on the other hand, arrived last season on the bench of the white club and left Albacete very close to get the promotion to the First Division being eliminated by Mallorca in the promotion playoff, the Balearic team being the one who subsequently got the promotion to First.In this way, the stage of the Catalan coach in La Mancha lands and also his entire work team formed by José Gil, Iván Madroño and Miguel Ángel Fernández, at Carlos Belmonte, ends.

first_imgPadraig Mac Lochlainn TDDonegal Sinn Féin TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has appealed to the Minister of Finance to do more to support families in mortgage arrears and to ensure that homes are not threatened by exorbitant increase in mortgage rates again.He was speaking this evening on Sinn Féin’s proposal to empower the Central Bank or limit or cap variable mortgage interest ratesDeputy Mac Lochlainn said: “Back in February of this year, there were some 271 people facing repossession in just one court sitting in a Donegal court. The people affected by this crisis are ordinary people. They are constituents that I deal with every week. There have been a total of 351 homes repossessed or surrendered in this State during the first quarter of 2015 alone. “These are ordinary people, kicked from their homes and directly into hostels or other emergency accommodation and a homeless system that is not fit for purpose.“What’s happening to the mortgage holders in this State is scandalous.“For the first time, here is a bill to provide for a legal process whereby the Regulator can set a maximum cap on the standard variable rate that the covered institutions can charge. The Minister for Finance will be able to urge the Regulator to undertake a review which could lead to this rate being set.“It’s a solution that gives the Minister and the Central Bank the real power to deal with this crisis. “We cannot wait, as has been suggested by this Government, until the Budget to deal with this crisis. The banks are ripping off mortgage holders and inaction is not an option. I urge the Minister to re-consider his position and have the decency to help those mortgage holders who are in trouble by making the banks fulfill their moral obligation to give something back.MAC LOCHLAINN WARNING OVER MORTGAGE ARREARS was last modified: June 11th, 2015 by John2Share 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:arrearsinterest ratesMortgagePadraig Mac LochlainnSinn FeinTSlast_img read more

West London teams can defy the odds this season

first_imgAll four clubs have had a challenging summer, but it could yet be a good season for the west London sides.Chelsea have lost Eden Hazard and are under a transfer ban, Fulham have been dealing without the fall-out from relegation, Brentford have lost key players and QPR have completely revamped their squad.A look at a list of new sportsbooks in the UK tells you that Chelsea are expected to again be behind Liverpool and champions Manchester City this season.The likes of Kiwislots see Liverpool and City as the Premier League’s stand-out teams, which isn’t surprising given how outstanding they were last season. But Chelsea could be dark horses.Lampard giving youth a chanceNew boss Frank Lampard will look to give youth a chance, partly because of the transfer ban but also because the Chelsea legend is keen for the club to develop players.That will mean chances for the likes of Kurt Zouma, Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi to establish themselves as first-team players. If they can do so, and if Christian Pulisic can soften the blow of Hazard’s departure, it could be a season to remember.Fulham look to bounce backMitrovic chose to stay at FulhamIt was a disappointing start to the season for Fulham, who lost 1-0 at Barnsley. That was a reminder of how brutal life back in the Championship could be for the Whites. But their transfer business has been so shrewd, and Aleksandar Mitrovic staying is such a huge boost, they will surely prove to be one of the division’s heavyweights. Automatic promotion is the aim.Bees still buzzingBrentford have also bought well – again – and that should offset the loss of star striker Neal Maupay, who has joined Brighton. Romaine Sawyers leaving for West Brom is also a shame for the Bees, but they still have enough quality to challenge for promotion.Resurgent RangersHugill is off the mark at QPROf all the west London sides, QPR seemed to be facing the bleakest season. But they started the campaign with a brilliant 2-1 win at Stoke, with on-loan West Ham striker Jordan Hugill getting off the mark and Ebere Eze scoring a cracker. New manager Mark Warburton appears to have made a real impact and the early signs suggest his new-look team could defy the odds and fare far better than expected. The loss of Luke Freeman is a blow, but on-loan youngsters Matt Smith and Luke Amos look like real prospects capable of making a major impact during their time at Loftus Road.

Scientists Dodge Youthfulness of Saturn Moon Titan

first_imgLike Enceladus, Saturn’s moon Titan shows multiple signs of being far less than 4.5 billion years old – yet the press releases are strangely silent about the implications.As we showed recently with Enceladus (8/7/13), planetary scientists become oddly silent about evidences that conflict with their old-age assumptions.  Another case is Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.Case of the disappearing methane:  Titan’s methane may dry up, a surprise announcement said on, where Megan Gannon wrote, “the compound doesn’t seem to be getting replenished fast enough on Titan’s surface to keep the methane cycle sustainable, scientists say.”  She was referring to a JPL press release (echoed on NASA Astrobiology Magazine) that asked if the methane is “going, going, soon to be gone” (cf. 4/16/13).  The articles acknowledged the ongoing photodissociation of methane by the solar wind, hinting that ethane should accumulate on the surface – but the observed lakes present far less than previously calculated (scientists had expected to find a global ocean of methane and ethane about half a kilometer deep).   Icarus said that over half the surface liquid should be ethane, presumably from the solar wind breakdown.   Christophe Sotin thinks the methane disappearance may be tens of millions of years in the future, but readers should ponder that ten million years is 1/450th the assumed age of Titan.  To rescue the assumption that Titan is billions of years old, the press release posited an unobservable, ad hoc event: “The team suggests that the current load of methane at Titan may have come from some kind of gigantic outburst from the interior eons ago possibly after a huge impact.”  It’s not known, though, whether a reservoir of methane exists under Titan’s surface that could be excavated by an impact.Case of the flat surface:  No such huge impact is evident, however.  Science Now told about Titan’s remarkably flat surface, joking that hiking and biking would be easy.  The highest point is only half a kilometer above the mean; the lowest, 1.7 km.  On earth, the highest mountains are 9 km above sea level.  Why is this?  “…perhaps because Titan’s crust isn’t strong enough to support tall mountains or because its thick atmosphere unleashes methane rains that erode them away.”  This seems unlikely, however.  Jupiter’s Io (smaller than Titan) supports high mountains despite global volcanism; and Ganymede, slightly larger than Titan, is loaded with craters and complex terrains.Case of the windless lakes:  Now that a global ocean on Titan has been debunked, planetologists are trying to understand the scattered lakes at the poles.  (Even if they were deep lakes, the amount of methane and ethane in them is far, far less than predicted in the 1990s.)  Now, it appears the lakes might be little more than shallow mudflats.  “The missing waves on Titan” (Astrobiology Magazine) grapples with why waves have not been detected on the surface of the lakes.  “We know there is wind on Titan,” Alex Hayes (Cassini radar scientist) said. “The moon’s magnificent sand dunes [prove] it”  (cf. 1/18/13) Why, then, no waves?  Cassini has not found any, not even at the millimeter scale (see video clip in the article).  Hayes suggests the surface might be thick, like tar, but he prefers his theory that the wind is seasonally low.  If so, it should pick up in the next few years.  Maybe, however, there is just not be that much liquid present.Saturn, too:  “Saturn’s youthful appearance” was in a headline on Science Daily.  Scientists have come up with an idea to rescue the planet’s presumed old age, even though its atmosphere looks young.  “As planets age they become darker and cooler. Saturn however is much brighter than expected for a planet of its age — a question that has puzzled scientists since the late sixties.”  The rescue comes in the form of an ad hoc scenario: “layers of gas, generated by physical instability deep within the giant planet, prevent heat from escaping and have resulted in Saturn failing to cool down at the expected rate.”  But did they apply this to the other gas giants, or only to Saturn?  One can always escape by saying the answer is too complex: “These findings suggest that the interior structure, composition and thermal evolution of giant planets in our Solar System, and beyond, may be much more complex than previously thought.”The whole darn solar system:  Alan Boss, planet formation theorist, is concerned that data don’t fit the standard model of accretion into planetesimals.  Meteorites and comets, particularly, pose problems due to the presence of compounds that only could have formed at high temperatures.  In “Solar System’s Youth Gives Clues to Planet Search,” Science Daily gave air to Boss’s ad hoc scenario that puts it all together:Boss’ new model demonstrates how a phase of marginal gravitational instability in the gas disk surrounding a proto-sun, leading to an outburst phase, can explain all of these findings. The results are applicable to stars with a variety of masses and disk sizes. According to the model, the instability can cause a relatively rapid transportation of matter between the star and the gas disk, where matter is moved both inward and outward. This accounts for the presence of heat-formed crystalline particles in comets from the solar system’s outer reaches.Nobody was around, of course, to see any of this.Planetary scientists are fully capable of inventing scenarios to keep Titan old, but that’s the point: the data require a story to fit a belief.  Titan looks young.  Based on processes we observe in operation, assuming they have been in steady state, we can set upper limits on Titan’s age.  Those limits (though theoretically in the millions of years) are far, far less than the assumed age of billions of years.  The implications are enormous.  Unless scientists can argue that Titan appeared in the relatively recent past, it should not look like it does.  Where did it come from?  Where did Saturn come from?   Where did the solar system come from?  Why are they stuck on billions of years?  Even Alan Boss believes in a “relatively rapid transportation of matter” from a disk instability that would have happened quickly.  Billions of years are not needed!  But without billions of years, the grand Darwin myth goes into the trash.We repeat a maxim from many times before: planetary scientists are excellent at observing, measuring, and describing the present, but they have been miserable failures at predicting the worlds revealed by the space program.  Virtually every object in the solar system, from meteorites to giant planets, has turned out to be far different than expected.  We need these people for accurate scientific description of the observable present, but when it comes to origins, if they were this wrong at any other job, they would have been fired long ago.  Lesson: don’t trust their stories.Richard Kerr in Science reminded us that Pluto will be “the last planetary first” when the New Horizons spacecraft arrives for its brief flyby on July 14, 2015.  Someone take note of scientists’ predictions now.  Let’s see if they get this one right for once.  Actually, they’ve left themselves a lot of fudging room: it could be active, it could be dead; it could be complex, it could be simple.  “We can expect the unexpected,” Paul Schenk said.  “We are going to be captivated; we are going to be befuddled.”  History proves him right.  Incidentally, the article describes the active, youthful surface of Neptune’s moon Triton – a reminder of how totally wrong scientists were about that world when Voyager 2 flew by in 1989.  Pluto could well be the next Triton.  As if remembering past mistakes, John Spencer allowed that “It [Pluto] could be just as wonderful and exotic as Triton’s surface.” (Visited 129 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Pretoria Airport ready for 2010

first_img“We have signed guarantees to provide sufficient and safe transport operations to enable the movement of spectators during the World Cup,” he said. “We believe the transport sector is one of the most important sectors for this event, both from legacy and event delivery perspective.” Speaking at the launch of the new airport last week, Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele said the airport would also be able to handle traffic between Pretoria and Rustenburg, as well as serve as a refuelling centre for aircraft during the tournament. Scheduled flights will be operated under an independent airline, Interlink Airlines, with flights to Durban, Cape Town, Polokwane and other parts of the country. From the airport, fans can then easily be integrated into other modes of transport such as rail, buses and taxis to get the soccer match venue. 2010 legacy project The airport expects to handle in the region of 6 800 general aviation and helicopter passengers a year. Ndebele said this would contribute to a successful economy and ensure the creation of even more jobs. Wonderboom National Airport in Tshwane/Pretoria, recently updgraded to the tune of R440-million, is expected to be used extensively by fans and Fifa delegates travelling to and from the city during the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.center_img The government has invested over R440-million in the project through the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, and a total of 1 629 jobs were created during the construction phase. “Transport is the heartbeat of the South African economy. We must continue to intensify our work towards improving the social and economic development of our people.” The upgraded and improved infrastructure at the airport includes arrivals and departure halls, a porte-cochere with kiosks, and a public transport facility developed for tour buses and mini-bus taxis. The airport parking facility has also been upgraded. Source: BuaNews 2 November 2009 Ndebele said the airport would become an important part of the legacies of the 2010 World Cup.last_img read more
