The Eibar-Real Sociedad, postponed for air pollution, will be held on Tuesday 10 (8:00 p.m.)

first_imgBefore the postponement last Sunday, the Real had played 8 games in 25 days for facing two competitions with great success. She was sixth classified until a week ago in the league and aspires to qualify for Europe; while in Copa he is one of the four semifinalists after eliminating a single match against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu. In these 8 duels, he has won 6 victories (4 of them in the cup).The ‘toll’ paid by the San Sebastian team is the fatigue of its main players, because his coach, Imanol Alguacil, has used almost without resting his starting players. Thus, the postponement has benefited the Royal in order to give a break to its staff.On the other hand, Eibar wanted to dispute as soon as possible – once the environmental alert has disappeared – the meeting suspended due to air pollution. And is that in the league is immersed in the fight for permanence and during the last league day they have scored the last four classified. Thus, the Barça team, which could not play last Sunday, is only 3 points above the relegation points, although with one game less, and the derby with the Real is an option to add and move away from danger.Eibar faces a very complicated duel this week, as it will visit Barcelona (16 hours) on Saturday at the Camp Nou. Then he will play two consecutive games in Ipurua against direct rivals in the fight for permanence, on Saturday, February 29 (1:00 p.m.) against Levante; and on Saturday, March 7 (1:00 p.m.) against Mallorca.In this way, he will repeat in Ipurua against Real Sociedad on Tuesday, March 10 (8:00 p.m.); before making a new complicated displacement before Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu. Although the duel against the white team, leader of the league, has not yet been designated, it will probably take place on Saturday, March 14. The blue and white club has achieved that The derby between the two Guipuzcoan First Division teams takes place after the Real play the return match of the Copa del Rey semifinal against Mirandés, which will be on Wednesday, March 4 in Miranda de Ebro (Burgos). The royalists did not want the postponed duel against Eibar to arrive before the decisive match against Mirandés in the Anduva camp, where they will defend the 2-1 achieved in Anoeta last Thursday. They are one step away from qualifying for the final copera of Seville, and have prioritized wanting to get ‘fresh’ to the semifinal cup above all else.Next week could not be celebrated in principle because Real plays on Friday. The Eibar knew and did not care. To the point that he asked LaLiga to change the party of the Donostiarras, involving Valladolid, a third party. The club that presides over Aperribay was clinging to Friday’s game, although it is clear that he preferred after the semifinal. The Eibar-Real Sociedad party, postponed due to air pollution, will be played on Tuesday, March 10 in Ipurua from 8:00 p.m.. The two Gipuzkoan clubs have reached an agreement to delay three weeks a match that should have been played last Sunday and that It was suspended by a fire in a landfill in Zaldibar (Bizkaia).The environmental alert still persists, and therefore Osakidetza (Basque Health Service) recommendation to close the windows of the houses of Eibar, Ermua and Zaldibar, and not to do outdoor sports, remains in force. But it is expected that in the next few days the fire will be stifled, which will reduce pollution levels and normality will return to the affected area.Tickets purchased will be valid for the new date, although fans also have the option of having their money returned. To do this they must contact the eibarresa entity.last_img read more

Judge extends federal consent decree for three years

first_imgA federal judge today extended his oversight of the Los Angeles Police Department for three years, saying the agency has made great strides preventing corruption and abuse since the Rampart scandal but that more work needs to be done. Judge Gary Feess extended a federal consent decree giving him oversight over the department until June 15, 2009 — three years after it was originally set to expire. “The department has made progress in ways that have never been done before,” Feess said during a hearing at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. “I do not believe in my working life there will ever be as important a case to this department or to this community. If we achieve all of the provisions in this consent decree, we will have a better police department and a better community. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals “I suspect that will happen, but it’s not finished yet.” The LAPD has complied with about 70 percent of the decree’s provisions, but several others — including a risk management computer system designed to track complaints and root out problem officers, have not been implemented. The system, known as TEAMS II, is expected to be rolled out in the fall. Feess rejected a motion from the city requesting that he lift provisions of the consent decree covering the areas with which the LAPD has complied. “We’re fully committed to reforming the Los Angeles Police Department,” LAPD Assistant Chief George Gascon said. “We will work with the federal monitor and do whatever is necessary. The request was really asking for recognition for all the good work that we’ve done. That recognition has been given orally, if not officially.” The LAPD entered the consent decree in 2001 after a police officer convicted of stealing evidence implicated dozens of other officers at the Rampart Division in a corruption scandal in the late 1990s. The Department of Justice accused the LAPD of widespread corruption and abuse, and the department agreed to the consent degree to avoid a lawsuit. The LAPD spends millions of dollars each year on audits to comply with the consent decree, but department officials said they would have continued with the audits if Feess had lifted the decree. “The most important message is that the Los Angeles Police Commission, the Los Angeles Police Department and the city of Los Angeles are fully and firmly committed to compliance of the consent decree, both the spirit and the letter of the decree,” Police Commission President John Mack said. “For many years, we had an LAPD that was brutal, that was racist, that wasn’t treating all citizens with respect. With a lot of hard work by the people of this department, we’ve changed that. We should all be celebrating the progress that we’ve made.”— Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 713-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LOVE CHILD ROW BEST TO MEET MUM OF ‘HIS CHILD’

first_img‘Celebrity’ Calum Best – at the centre of a storm in Donegal this weekend – has agreed to meet the mother of his alleged love child.The celebrity son of footballer George Best told Lorna Hogan he will take a paternity test to find out if four-and-a-half-year-old Amelia Hogan is his child.Manchester-born Lorna turned up at the official launch of his new aftershave in Bundoran on Friday – a stunt which rattled the star. The child and her mother attempted to hand Best the note which read: “To Daddy, Please take a DNA test so you don’t have to deny me anymore. I am your daughter, please have a heart and don’t put me through this anymore.”Best was taken to a staff room to get away from her. Miss Hogan wants cash from the American.She said: “He changed his mind and came back afterwards and we did talk. He said he would meet me again to discuss taking the paternity test.”But an exasperated Lorna Hogan warned that if Calum Best fell through on his promise, she would continue to turn up at every public appearance to embarrass the star into taking responsibility for his alleged child. “I will turn up at every launch, every public appearance. I will make it my mission until he faces up to his responsibilities,” she vowed.“I will not rest, I will be there every time. I think I’m raising an important issue and giving single moms everywhere who are in my position the courage to do what I am doing.”LOVE CHILD ROW BEST TO MEET MUM OF ‘HIS CHILD’ was last modified: September 25th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more

Alcohol misuse among older people to be discussed at Donegal event

first_imgLeading experts in the field of ageing research and care will visit Donegal on the 20th of September to talk to professionals and services about the growing impact of harmful alcohol use on older people in Ireland.The event comes in response to the growing numbers of older people using alcohol to cope with stressful life events linked with growing older – redundancy, retirement, bereavement or because of social isolation.While many might associate binge drinking with younger generations, it is believed that harmful alcohol-use among older people remains a hidden problem. “Alcohol misuse often goes undetected among older people until a crisis point is reached, which might be a fall or developing an alcohol-related physical health condition” says Kieran Doherty, CEO of the Donegal-based charity, the Alcohol Forum.“The impact at that point can be catastrophic, with the loss of independence, ill-health or the development of a disability”It is now known that alcohol is broken down more slowly in the body as people age. As a result, adults over the age for 55 become more sensitive to the harmful effects of alcohol. This can lead to increased risk of stroke, heart disease, cancer, depression and dementia.Psychologist and Neuroscientist from Trinity College Dublin, Professor Sabina Brennan will headline the event and present ground-breaking research and advances in dementia prevention. Other speakers include, Dr Grainne O Malley, Consultant Geriatrician from Sligo University Hospital, Dr Helen McMonagle from the Alcohol Forum and the Drink Wise, Age Well programme from Northern Ireland. The Alcohol Forum will also be launching a video highlighting the impact of alcohol on brain health.“Positive Ageing: The Role of Alcohol” will be held in the Centre of Nursing and Midwifery Education in St Conals Hospital Campus Letterkenny on the 20th of September 2019.

South Africa’s Beerhouse has 99 bottles of beer

first_imgThe founder-owner of the South African restaurant, Beerhouse, aims to have 20 outlets across the country by 2020. The third venue, in Pretoria, opened in November.The Beerhouse on Long Street in Cape Town is on the ’21 Best Beer Bars in the World’ list compiled by online lifestyle magazine Thrillist. (Image: Beerhouse, Facebook)Melissa JavanA German who fell in love with South Africa opened his third South African Beerhouse in Centurion, Pretoria in November 2016; it will not be his last. Randolf Jorberg, founder of the restaurant, says he aims to have 20 Beerhouse outlets in the country by 2020.Each Beerhouse serves 99 types of bottled beer, each on display, which the restaurant calls its “99 bottles of beer on the wall”. Each also has 25 taps, although the taps are not all for beer. There are also spirits on tap – the Centurion Beerhouse has gone bigger, with 30 taps.“[A total of] 80% of the beer we sell is South African,” says Jorberg. “Where there is no local equivalent, we import beer. We are importing less and less.”Earlier this month, the Beerhouse received the Rosetta Award 2016 for service excellence from the Restaurant Association of South Africa:Jorberg says he had more than 30 staff members when the first Beerhouse opened in Cape Town in August 2013. “Now we have 163 staff members in the three shops.” The Fourways, Johannesburg venue opened in July 2014 and the Centurion venue opened on 25 November this year.A South African love affairRandolf Jorberg, owner of the Beerhouse. (Image: OM Business Bash, Facebook)He fell in love with South Africa regardless of the beer, says Jorberg. “I decided to live here and to have a business. That’s how the idea of a beerhouse came.“This is the business I want to drive forward. I love the diversity of South Africa. I want that diversity represented at every Beerhouse.”The Beerhouse has a specific beginning. Jorberg recalls that he and his pregnant girlfriend, Varnia, were sitting in a beer bar in Heidelberg in Germany when the idea sparked. On 2 April 2012, he writes on his website, “Varnia (then pregnant) and I were sitting and discussing the various available beers, their stories and wondering why no similar place existed in Cape Town.“Quick market research through text messages and Facebook followed and we realised that there might indeed be a gap in the South African market. Thanks to the pregnancy, we went back to the hotel quite early that evening and I reserved the most obvious domain name beerbar.co.za, created a brand new Facebook page, invited Capetonian friends and started posting, before going to bed.“Just a few days after the birth of our daughter it happened: Varnia’s uncle told us that some of his rugby mates had asked him whether he had heard about these mavericks who were planning to open a beer bar with more than 40 different beers and they mentioned my name,” says Jorberg.“Shortly thereafter, the beer blogger Joakim had written about us, although we had no location, no experience in the hospitality industry – we did nothing but promise beer variety…”He realised it wasn’t only friends and family who liked the idea, Jorberg says. “We had planted an idea in people’s minds and they actually really wanted a beer bar with 40+ different beers.”The original Beerhouse opened on Cape Town’s famed Long Street in 2013. (Image: Beerhouse, Facebook)A few days after signing the contract for the venue at 223 Long Street, they still had no real plan how to open a bar, but were ready to spread the word.“We printed blue Beerbar T-shirts and visited the Cape Town Festival of Beer, where we met all the brewers. They are now our best partners for the first time and we also found our vision: give our guests at the Beerhouse a 365-day-a-year beer festival experience and be the tasting room for the South African craft beer industry.”Jorberg says although the Beerhouse did not start the craft beer revolution, it is driving it forward.The Beerhouse experienceThere are 99 bottles of beer on the wall and over 20 taps in every Beerhouse. (Image: Beerhouse, Facebook)A Beerhouse experience of which clients can be part is the “Meet the Brewer” events. This is a food and beer pairing of three courses. Handcrafted food is paired with different drinks on a special menu.“Meet the Brewer” is aimed at giving local micro-breweries a podium, explains the Beerhouse site. “However, we do have an inclusive menu that has a range of international treats from 13 different countries.”Jorberg adds: “Nearly every day we have a mini beer festival. Customers can also formally meet the brewer who hand delivers the beers daily.”The Beerhouse tries to find the perfect beer for each of its customers, explains Jorberg. “We are trying to convert many people who say ‘we don’t drink beer’ to ‘we do drink beer.’ People who come to the Beerhouse go away saying ‘I don’t like a larger but I like an ale.’”Watch AFK Travel show the variety of drinks and food sold at Beerhouse:Asked what beers stand out, Jorberg answers:Drifter Brewery – Stranded Coconut AleBig Trees Brewing – Mango BeerWoodstock Brewery – CalifornicatorThe last is a great example of the American West Coast India pale ale that is brewed locally and is exciting international tourists.Competing with the worldWhen it comes to beer, South Africa competes with the rest of the world, Jorberg says. “International tourists who visit the Beerhouse in Cape Town are usually blown away at the beer variety and the presentations we have. We take beer very seriously in our way.”And South Africans love beer, he adds. “The feedback we received (after opening the Centurion outlet) is good.” There are already regulars – people who have made the place their local hangout – at the Centurion Beerhouse. But there are also plenty of new customers.He believes that the variety of beer and the experience at the Beerhouse is a strong model. “The trust we have earned, the fact that you can find that local and global variety in one place – we are creating a destination people want to visit.”Beer for charityThe Beerhouse also runs a social responsibility initiative called #PintForAPurpose. “One of our general managers – who was a waiter first – suggested this initiative. We ask the brewers for free stock and raise money for a purpose,” says Jorberg.“Each #PintForAPurpose cycle we try to get 150 litres donated which gives us around R12 000 per cycle. We have made over R200 000 since we started the initiative.”The first cycle raised about R4 000, which went to a soup kitchen that fed approximately 60 people for lunch and dinner. Following that, the initiative contributed R10 000 towards buying non-perishables. This was distributed to various homes that were struggling financially.“Our next big project we did an eye screening for a school in Joe Slovo. We screened two grades, of which 67 children needed glasses. We also bought them the glasses and footed the bill for all the costs of transport, screening, glasses and scripts,” explains Jorberg.He says the most recent #PintForAPurpose was for a former employee, Joe Kanyona.Kanyona, a doorman, was murdered while at work in June last year. “Joe’s fund was to pay for his daughter’s school fees. His fund brought in about R30 000.”Sources: Beerhouse, Beer Revolution and The Randolf Jorberg Blog.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
