Bartomeu targets Lars Bender to strengthen his election campaign at Barça

first_img His characteristics — he recovers lots of balls and is good technically — is ideal for Barça’s style. He’s also combative and is good in the air due to being 184cm tall. In cases of emergency, he has also played as a right-back. His contract runs until 2019. Even though he has impressed in the Bundesliga, Bender, whose brother plays for Borussia Dortmund, was not included in Germany’s World Cup squad.  Despite FIFA’s transfer ban, Barça continue to scour the market for reinforcements. Elections are also close and president Josep Maria Bartomeu is sounding out possible signings to boost his campaign.  Upd. on 19/02/2015 at 15:03 CET 18/02/2015 One of those names is Bayer Leverkusen’s Lars Bender. The central midfielder is 25 and can play as a pivot or further forward. He has been playing for the German club since 2009 and his price would be close to €30 million.  J.M Bertran First contact has already been made, as reported by ‘La Porteria’ on BTV. Bender looks like the new commission’s preferred choice to join Barça.  He came through at TSV 1860 Munich and is now a reference in Leverkusen’s side, which he has been a part of for five seasons. As well as Barça, Arsenal are also interested in Bender.last_img read more

Mercedes point finger at Ferrari’s ‘interesting tactics’

first_img0Shares0000Lewis Hamilton was visibly unhappy sharing te podium with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen on Sunday. © AFP / Andrej ISAKOVICSILVERSTONE, United Kingdom, Jul 8 – Mercedes and Ferrari traded insults and accusations after Sebastian Vettel beat Lewis Hamilton to win the British Grand Prix on Sunday.The controversy centred on an incident in the opening lap when Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen collided with Hamilton’s Mercedes at Turn Three. As a result, the Englishman, who had started from pole position, dropped to the back of the field. The accident followed a first-lap collision at the French Grand Prix, when the other Ferrari, driven by Vettel, drove into the other Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.In France, Vettel was handed a five seconds penalty and On Sunday, Raikkonen took a 10-seconds penalty, but Mercedes felt these punishments were not sufficient.Hamilton, his Mercedes boss Toto Wolff and the team’s non-executive chairman Nikki Lauda all suggested that Ferrari’s crashes with their team’s cars might be more than just unlucky “racing incidents.”Vettel, who increased his narrow lead in the driver standings, responded by dismissing the talk as “quite silly.”On Sunday, Hamilton drove a heroic race to finish second while Raikkonen, went on to secure the final podium place.After the race, the Mercedes driver struggled to hide his disappointment. He avoided a post-race interview and his body language as he kept away from Raikkonen in the pre-podium room and during the champagne spraying told its own story.When he was eventually interviewed on the podium after the two Ferrari men had departed, Hamilton took a swipe at his rivals: “Interesting tactics, I would say, from their side, but we’ll do what we can to fight them.”Hamilton later expanded on his comments“It’s now two races one of the Ferraris has taken out one of the Mercedes,” he said. “There’s a lot of points there that Valtteri and I have lost.”“We’ve just got to try to position ourselves better so we are not exposed to the red cars because who knows whether that’s going to happen again.“We’ve got to work hard as a team to try to lock out the front row and make sure we’re fully ahead of these guys.”Wolff quoted his team’s Technical Director, James Allison, as he raised the possibility of foul play.“It is a lot of constructors’ points. In James Allison’s words ‘do you think it is deliberate or incompetence?’ So, this leaves us with a judgement.”Lauda, who won two of his three championships with Ferrari, said: “The accident was unfair basically because it’s the second time a Ferrari hits us in the first corner and it’s not funny, but that’s the way it is…“First of all, it was wrong when they gave Vettel five seconds. At least, now, they gave Kimi 10 seconds. The stewards realised what’s going on here…”– ‘Things can happen’ –Vettel now leads the title race with 171 points, eight ahead of Hamilton on 163 while Raikkonen is third on 116.Vettel shrugged off the accusations.“Why? Things can happen,” the German said. “It’s quite silly to think that anything that happened was deliberate. I, at least, would struggle to be that precise and take somebody out.“In France, I lost my wing, so I screwed my race. I think it’s easy to attack and have a great move and easy to have an incident.“I only saw it briefly, but I don’t think there was any intention and I find it a bit unnecessary even to go there.”Hamilton was on pole on Sunday and made a poor start before his brush with Raikkonen who apologised and accepted the blame.Sebastian Vettel collected the victory at Silverstone and then dismissed Mercedes that Ferrari had done anything unfair. © AFP / Andrej ISAKOVIC“He spun and it was my bad, but that is how it goes sometimes,” said Raikkonen. “It was not a straightforward race. It was my mistake so that was fine. That is how it goes. Without the mistakes and the penalty it would have been better, but I tried.”Later, responding to the comments from Mercedes, Raikkonen said: “That’s how it goes sometimes. It’s easy to say after the last couple of races, but we’ve been hit plenty of times in the past.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

It takes time! Misfiring Liverpool star backed to come good by Brendan Rodgers

first_img1 Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists Divock Origi will not be leaving the club on loan in January.The 20-year-old was one of a number of attacking talents signed by Liverpool to try and fill the Luis Suarez-shaped void after the forward left for Barcelona.But, since his return from his season-long loan at Lille, the forward has done little to excite the Anfield faithful and there has been speculation he could heading out of Merseyside.However, Rodgers has now revealed that he wants to keep the Belgian as part of his squad for the remainder of the season.“He had his loan period last year. This year is about him coming in and adapting,” said Rodgers, ahead of Thursday’s Europe League clash with Sion.“We’ll review where he’s at at the end of the season.”Origi is still searching for his first Liverpool goal after three appearances for the club this season.But Rodgers is confident he will come good, and is preparing to hand him a start for Thursday’s visit of Sion, with Daniel Sturridge rested.“It just takes time to adapt,” Rodgers said. “He’s a young player who has excellent qualities.“The real focus on Divock is goals in games, that is what he’ll be judged on. He obviously hasn’t played so much, but he understands where he is at – coming in to such a big club, he knows he’ll be competing for places.“For us, it’s about nurturing that talent along and for him, he’s really looking to improve that goalscoring record. That will hopefully come in time.“He’s a humble guy. He knows where he stands and that he’s here to develop. It’s a big step coming to such a prestigious club.“He knows he is going to get opportunities working hard every day in training. He has settled in very well.” Divock Origi last_img read more

Officials: Skid Row arrests to continue

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventThe American Civil Liberties Union filed the challenge in 2003 on behalf of six transients who were unable to get shelter the night they were cited or arrested. ACLU officials said the appellate court’s decision does not affect the city’s efforts to control crime. “There is nothing in this decision that prevents the police or the city from enforcing its laws,” attorney Mark Rosenbaum said after last week’s decision. “All it says is that it cannot arrest someone for being homeless.” Delgadillo said the ACLU misunderstood the city’s actions in enforcing the law. “For the past five-plus years, people have been allowed to camp and sleep on public rights-of-way, something that has become a common sight on the streets of Skid Row,” he said. “The ordinance in question has been used to target only those who violate the law and has never been intended as a means of targeting the poor.” Criticizing a federal court decision they fear could exacerbate the homeless problem downtown, Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo and Councilwoman Jan Perry vowed Monday that police will continue to arrest crime suspects on Skid Row. The ordinance prohibiting anyone from sleeping, sitting or lying on public streets was declared unconstitutional Friday by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which said it amounted to cruel and unusual punishment. While Delgadillo and Perry refused to say whether they’ll seek City Council permission to appeal the court’s 2-1 ruling, they promised they won’t let downtown be used as a dumping ground for the homeless or the criminal element. “We want to be humane, but we will not allow a return of the gangs and drug peddlers who prey on the homeless,” Delgadillo said at a City Hall news conference. However, the court ruling notes that none of the six plaintiffs in the ACLU suit was suspected of committing any other crime. Perry said she worries that the ruling sends the message that Skid Row – which has the nation’s largest concentration of transients – will be a sanctuary for the homeless. rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

New Details About the Disney Skyliner Gondola Transportation System

first_imgFirst things first, it was announced that Disney characters like the Fab Five, characters from Disney attractions, fan favorites from movies, and more would be a part of the fun. The exterior of the cabins will feature iconic beloved Disney characters incorporated into their design, like Belle and Beast, the Haunted Mansion ghosts, Mickey and Minnie, and more. ©Disney Share This!When it was announced at the D23 Expo that the Walt Disney World Resort was getting a gondola transportation system, called the Disney Skyliner, I was a little surprised. It was a cool idea, but the questions soon started coming to my mind. Today, Disney answered some of the questions I had, as well as some additional ones.©Disney One of the destinations will be Epcot. Guests will be able to enter and exit at the International Gateway entrance located near World Showcase. The design of the Disney Skyliner station here will be inspired by the park’s nearby European Pavilions. The station will be covered with metal and glass canopies, will feature hand-painted murals and ornamental steel structures that call back to the early 18th century Art Nouveau style. Oh and let’s not forget about the views, because Guests traveling to Epcot will experience a birds-eye view of World Showcase.©Disney The main hub of the Disney Skyliner will be at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. At this station, Guests will be able to transfer gondola routes to reach their destination. This station is inspired by the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean. It will showcase the nearby resort’s architectural detailing and color schemes.©Disney I think I love the Disney’s Hollywood Studios Skyliner station the most though because the design style will fit with that of the park’s main entrance and bus stations. Passengers traveling here can expect a new aerial perspective of the park’s iconic attractions, like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.Over at Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Guests will share a Disney Skyliner station. Here, the station will feel whimsical and fit both resorts. Upon departing the gondola station, Skyliner passengers will ascend over Hourglass Lake and enjoy a panoramic view of these two colorful resorts.Finally, Guests will be treated to fantastic views as cabins will slow down at the Disney Skyliner turn-station along Buena Vista Drive, where guests can see the mechanical and aerial components that make up the Disney Skyliner.Are you excited about experiencing the Disney Skyliner?

Police hard at work for a safer SA

first_imgPolice Department deputy minister Fikile Mbalula and National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele at Operation Duty Calls’ launch. Kaizer Chiefs football club players Jimmy Tau and Kaizer Motaung Junior have pledged to help fight crime.  Actress Sonia Sedibe supports police initiatives in combating crime. (Images: Bongani Nkosi) MEDIA CONTACTS • Nonkululeko Mbatha National police media liaison +27 83 645 6252 RELATED ARTICLES •Cracking down on crime in 2010 •5000 new police for South Africa •SA police at world games •Crime in South AfricaBongani NkosiSouth African police have toughened their fight against crime to ensure the public is kept safe this festive season.Operation Duty Calls was launched on 27 November in the Western Cape province ahead of the 2010 Fifa World Cup final draw, which took place there on 4 December. The campaign, which will run from now until January next year, has also been implemented in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape.As the campaign kicked off in Gauteng, National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele said “we will make sure that everybody who commits crime in South Africa” lands in jail.Over the festive season police will focus on combating armed robberies, cash-in-transit heists and theft – particularly at shopping malls, and tracing and confiscating all illegally owned firearms. They will also increase their visibility at taxi ranks and train stations.Holiday and tourist hotspots, especially those along the coast, will also benefit from high police visibility and more patrols.In addition, police have stepped up their efforts to fight the drug trade, as there are fears it may escalate in the run-up to next year’s World Cup.Police said they will “not just raise awareness” about crimes at shopping malls and other public areas during the festive season, they will actually be there in person to deal with criminal incidents.“We are proud of Duty Calls. It’s about the selflessness of the men and women in blue,” said South African Police Service deputy minister Fikile Mbalula. Duty Calls is a commitment to rid the streets of crime, he added.Gauteng Police Commissioner Perumal Naidoo said: “We commit ourselves to ensure that all people in this province are safe. We can do even better if we get the support of communities.”Police morale is high, Cele said, and officers are highly committed to their work. “They walk tall. They arrest criminals.”Head of the police investigations unit Anwar Dramat said they will double their work during the festive season. “It is encouraging that our efforts are making the lives of criminals difficult,” he said.Role of communities and businessMany private organisations have signed a pledge to work with police for the Duty Calls campaign – these include Business Against Crime South Africa, South African Council of Shopping Centres, South African Banking Risk Information Centre, South African Federation Against Copyright Theft, Consumer Goods Council of South Africa (CGCSA) and Primedia.Private sector participants have commended government for setting the standard. “The new energy and drive from the police has to be met by a renewed energy from our [business] community,” said CGCSA.A call has gone out to communities across the country to work with police in the fight against crime and report all criminal activities. The public has also been urged not to support thieves by buying stolen goods.A number of celebrities in Johannesburg, including actors and musicians, and players from popular local football teams Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have lent their support to Duty Calls.They will act as police ambassadors to inspire communities to work with authorities to fight crime.“We can really use our voice to get everyone thinking of positive ways to fight crime,” said popular South African singer Kurt Darren.‘Outstanding’ work at final drawThe police’s efforts before and during the draw in Cape Town were outstanding, Cele said. Only two incidents were reported, one of which was a hoax bomb scare made by a foreign freelance photojournalist. “Police worked very hard,” he added.This served as a good indication of how committed police will be in fighting crime and promoting security during next year’s World Cup.The offending journalist spent the weekend in prison and was released on R5 000 (US$666) bail on 7 December. He was due to appear at the Cape Town Magistrates’ Court the following day.last_img read more
