Raúl de Tomás postpones his arrival to the National Team

first_imgEven top Spanish filmmakers this season, both with 11 goals, are under the average parakeet attacker. The Levante Roger Martí dial every 151 minutes, while Gerard Moreno, from Villarreal and former Espanyol, spends 187 minutes on each target. And the rest are also light years away. No one would say that came from writing down a single official goal with the Benfica in mid-season (since he paid 20 million for his purchase to Real Madrid until he received the same amount from Cornellà-El Prat) a Raúl de Tomás who as a parakeet in LaLiga averages one target every 135 minutes, in an Espanyol on the verge of eviction that does not exhibit the most appropriate playing pattern for its characteristics. Only a Spanish striker in the domestic championship exceeds his average, and is Ángel Rodríguez Getafe with ten goals and one every 105 minutes. Debut and goal in the Copa del Rey, before the Sanse from his brother Rubén. The same in the garter belt premiere, before him Villarreal. And again in the following three days, against Athletic, Granada and Mallorca. Against Atlético de Madrid, he did not score strictly but an auction of his did impact on Stefan Savic to go up to the scoreboard. And the streak ended with Osasuna. Since he landed at Espanyol in January, Raúl de Tomás practically counted his goal matches, a cruising speed that this forced stop Due to the expansion of the COVID-19 it brakes dry in every way.center_img Was a open secret that, with such sharp aim, he could enter at any moment RdT in Luis Enrique’s plans for the Selection. Four goals in 540 minutes played in LaLiga were enough argument, without going any further, to to have summoned in view of the friendlies already suspended next week against Germany and the Netherlands. And all this, in a normal scenario in which the Eurocup He was waiting around the corner. The striker’s first minutes with Spain I would have cheered as much or more than he himself Spanish, since by contract it has stipulated that, in case of play with the national team, its termination clause will go from 60 to 70 million euros. A little further from their suitors or, in the worst case, a little closer to the club to materialize an astronomical sale.last_img read more

2 Students Give Birth to ‘WAEC Babies’

first_imgThe maxim—‘wonders shall never end,’ was manifested again at this year’s tests when two pregnant high school students went into labor while writing their West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams at different testing centers in Monrovia.The two students have been identified as Cynthia Sam, 20, and Hajah Fahnbulleh, 19. They both gave birth to their first children: a boy and a girl respectively.The students went into labor on Wednesday, May 19, 2014, while they were writing their tests on the campuses of the Liberia Dujar Association High School in Gardnersville and the William V.S. Tubman High School on 12th Street, Sinkor.Cynthia Sam gave birth in the Barnesville Community at about 3 a.m., outside Monrovia, while Hajah Fahnbulleh delivered at the S.D. Cooper Hospital in Sinkor, around 12 midday.Midwives and nurses who attended to the two births have referred to the babies as “WAEC Babies.”Ms. Fahnbulleh, who delivered at the S.D. Cooper Hospital in the neighborhood of her school, was taking her exams when she got went into labor pain and was immediately rushed by her friends and other female students to the hospital.She delivered the baby without any complications, doctors there said.A short while later, she told this paper in an interview at her bedside that she had earlier experienced contractions, but that was prior to the distribution of the examination questionnaires in the morning hours.“I managed and stayed on because I was desirous to finish the tests which I have throughout the year struggled to overcome,” she told our reporter as she tried to smile.She has, therefore, expressed her willingness to continue writing the tests in the coming days, “Because I kept the courage not to remain at home while I was already pregnant.”Additionally, Ms. Fahnbulleh said she had wanted to ensure that, despite all of the criticisms she received from friends during her pregnancy, she did not give up the hope to meet the challenges of writing the WAEC. And certainly, she made it, but for only two days.She explained rather sorrowfully that she endured many challenges during the pregnancy. “Even to wake up in the morning to make my way to school was sometimes difficult, because this was the first time I had conceived.”The young mother was, however, encouraged by her immediate family members and some ‘good neighbors’ to preserve in her academic sojourn until the WAEC exams were completed.“I thank the Almighty God, who carried me safely. I hope that the head of WAEC can see the academic reason and make the necessary way for me to re-sit the tests that I have already missed while I was in labor pain,” she pleaded.While on her hospital bed, Ms Fahnbulleh made a call to the testing center after giving birth to ask if there was any possibility for the supervisor to allow her continue writing the test. “Because I was feeling well and wanted to ensure that what I started is completed…,” she explained.Ms. Cynthia Sam, a student at the Bishop Grimley High School, was sitting the WAEC at the Liberia Dujar Association High School when she experienced labor pains.She delivered her bouncing “WAEC Baby” at 3 a.m. the next morning.It is always important, she said, to motivate people in such a situations, especially first-time mothers who muster the courage and continue their education pursuits to reach as far as writing the WAEC.After giving birth to the baby, Cynthia was later that morning accompanied by one of her sisters to the testing center to continue writing her exam.She unfortunately arrived too late to continue. Whether or not she will be allowed to re-take the exams has not been confirmed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MOU layouts framework for LNG industry in B.C.

first_imgLiquefied Natural Gas facilities are major long-term investments, and their proponents want long-term certainty that these investments will be treated fairly and consistently over the term of the investment.“The benefits from LNG activity will be significant for British Columbia’s economy, and we want to help companies and communities make that happen,” said Minister of Finance, Michael de Jong. “These agreements will help provide LNG companies with the kind of certainty they need to make long-term plans to do business in communities across BC.”The PDA provides, through legislation, measures to ensure that Pacific NorthWest LNG will not face significant increases in certain specific taxes for the specified term of the agreement. It will be protected from adverse changes to LNG income tax, the natural gas tax credit, the carbon tax and key features of greenhouse gas emissions at an LNG facility. In addition, the government has already passed a long-term LNG taxation framework, long-term royalty agreements and measures allowing local government tax agreements with Pacific NorthWest LNG.- Advertisement -The agreement has provisions which guarantee that if the Province negotiates a more beneficial agreement with a proponent in a future PDA, the better element can apply to any PDAs which were signed and agreed upon earlier. This is ensure that no proponent is penalised for reaching an earlier agreement. It has also included compensation provisions in the event that the Province increases or changes the LNG tax, the natural gas tax credit, or the tax on greenhouse gas emissions.A new section in the Petroleum and Natural Gas Act was introduced in 2015, which allows the Province to enter into long-term royalty agreements with natural gas producers. The first of these is with the North Montney Joint Venture, which is providing the natural gas to Pacific NorthWest LNG. Once ratified, this agreement will run from Jan 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2038. As part of this agreement, NMJV must produce a minimum amount of gas per year, starting at 159.46 bcf in the first year, and climbing to 373.31bcf in 2038.The royalty rate is preset each year, starting at 6.06 per cent the first year, and rising to 13.36 by 2038. This provides the company with certainty, as their production and royalty rates are known in advance.Advertisementlast_img read more
