Messi has only scored 20% of his goals for Espanyol away from home

Posted On May 14 2020 by

first_imgWhile Messi makes a goal every 69 minutes for Espanyol at the Camp Nou, which basically means that Barça goes to the home derbies by winning 1-0 if he plays the Argentine crack, out of the Estadi, Leo takes 248 minutes to make each goal to the periocos. Messi scored the first of his five goals against Espanyol in the Estadi Lluís Companys, in that derby of the flares that was decided in the 102nd minute with a goal from the Argentine 1-2. The other four goals already scored in the RCD Stadium. In the 2013-14 season, he scored the penalty goal that the derby decided (0-1). In the 2014-15 season he contributed to the 0-2 victory and, finally, last year he doubled in the 0-4 victory. The derby is coming and it is time, as in every previous one of a Barça match, to take a look at the numbers of that monster that is Messi against the rival. The Spanish He has always been one of Argentina’s favorite rivals, capable of even scoring four goals in a match like in the 2011-12 season, when he sealed with a hug to Guardiola the relationship between the two on the eve of the goodbye of the coach of Santpedor. Messi has scored up to 25 goals for parrots during his career, but it is true that with an asterisk. Only 20 percent of them, five, have been away from home. And that last season was able to make two in the 0-4 that fit the Ruby. Just back from Argentina, where he has spent the Christmas holidays, Messi will initially be the owner. Since that storm of Anoeta, do not usually miss the beginning of the year. And Barça, despite being a leader, is in a situation of need because Madrid is two points away and, who knows, if maybe leader at the time the game starts.

Health Network Wants Colleague Abort Planned Strike Action

Posted On Jan 15 2020 by

first_imgThe National Health Advocacy Network of Liberia (NHANL) is calling on the National Health Workers’ Association of Liberia (NHWAL) to abort their planned strike action.NWHAL had said few days that they are going to commence a strike action today if their demands weren’t met by the Government of Liberia. Their demands, among others, included the resignation of Health and Social Welfare Minister, Dr. (MD) Walter T. Gwenigale, and his principle deputies, including Dr. (MD) Bernice Dahn and Cllr. Vivian Cherue.NHANL said in a release that if the strike goes on as planned, it will adversely affect the nation’s struggling public health system and expose patients, including those in critical conditions, to serious danger.The network acknowledged the vital roles trussed upon the shoulders of health workers, including  nurses pertaining to medications and treatments, assistance to both the patients and physicians/doctors as well as, ensuring that patients are  properly examined, comfortable and well taken care of.

Nyenabo Dribbles Colleagues Again

Posted On Jan 15 2020 by

first_imgGrand Gedeh County Senator Isaac Nyenabo scored political and legislative points on his colleagues again when he scuttled a plenary decision to request President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to retire her Health and Social Welfare Minister, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale.A special block within the Liberian Senate comprising 15 Senators  last week voted in favor of a motion requesting “President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to recall Health and Social Welfare Minister, Dr. Walter Gwenigale, and honorably retire him.”The group of senators cited “health condition” as the reason for their decision.However, during the call for votes, Grand Kru and River Gee Senators Cletus Wortorson and Frederick Doe Cherue voted against the motion, while Grand Gedeh Senator Nyenabo announced a motion for reconsideration, a move that largely stalled the entire process and dashed  the hope of the opposition block, a legislative commentator asserted.Motion for ReconciliationThe Grand Gedeh County lawmaker has been successful in stalling the quest of some of his colleagues to force Dr. Gwenigale into retirement.The intent for filing a motion for reconsideration is to “Filibuster and Buy more time, aimed at convincing the presiding officer to consider previous arguments provided by a senator during the debate but was not considered by his/her colleagues.”In a conversation with the Daily Observer  over the weekend, Senator Nyenabo disclosed that he intends to introduce his motion on the second Tuesday of this month, in keeping with their rules that provide  that a Motion for Reconsideration  when filed, has three session days to bring back the subject for legislative action.Interestingly, Nyenabo has been successful in achieving the goals for such motion based on a constitutional requirement that compels the Legislature to adjourn session after the elapse of the emergency period.Article 87 (a), “Emergency powers do not include the power to suspend or abrogate the Constitution, dissolve the Legislature, or suspend or dismiss the Judiciary; and no constitutional amendment shall be promulgated during a state of emergency.Where the Legislature is not in session, it must be convened immediately in special session and remain in session during the entire period of the state of emergency.”Thursday November 6 marks the end of the 90 day State of Emergency announced by President Johnson Sirleaf on August 6, 2014.Nyenabo argued that said decision of the 15 Senators to ask the President to retire Minister Gwenigale  violates Article 56 a) of the Constitution, which gives the power to the President to appoint and fire, and those appointees work at the will and pleasure of the President.Judging from these constitutional provisions and in keeping with the Senate rules, the Grand Gedeh County Senator and former President Pro Tempore has again trounced the entire plenary of the Senate in achieving a critical but cardinal decision in their political history.As was done in cases involving the Liberian Senate and Madam Mary T. Broh, President Sirleaf’s second letter during the emergency period requesting for more power, a similar motion was filed by Senator Nyenabo, thereby placing hold on these two critical issues.Meanwhile, legislative analysts believe that the decision to retire Dr. Gwenigale as proffered by some members of the Senate will gain no results since the matter can no longer be discussed ahead of defeating Nyenabo’s motion.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


CWFI Appeals for Tax Waiver

Posted On Jan 14 2020 by

first_imgAn American non-profit organization, Children’s Wish Foundation International (CWFI), has appealed to the government to waive taxes on items it brings into the country for humanitarian purpose. CWFI is piloting its humanitarian programs in Liberia and many other African countries.CWFI’s Chief Field Agent, Victor N. Garpulee, told the Daily Observer that his appeal for a tax waiver comes against the backdrop that clearing goods imported to the country for the organization’s work has become costly and sometimes difficult.“CWFI-USA in March 2015 sent us used clothes, toys, among others items, worth US$13,500 through one of the local cargo carriers. But we only succeeded on September 2, 2016 to clear the items from the Roberts International Airport (RIA), a situation that caused us to lose so much money while in the process of clearing the items,” Garpulee said.He said items sent to them were not for business purposes.“All the things are intended for us to give to at least 700 children who lost their parents during the Ebola outbreak and other people who are in need of help,” he said.The items, he explained, will be distributed in Margibi and Grand Bassa counties very shortly.Garpulee also appealed to the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) to consider reducing or cancelling tax payments on items meant to help the suffering population.A communication from the office of the USA Director of CWFI said the entity would appreciate it if government drops taxes on imported humanitarian goods.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Principal Robert Gapper said he wasn’t surprised by David’s success. “He’s been working really hard at this for months and months and months,” Gapper said. He noted that as David was toiling away onstage in Washington, his classmates were taking their end-of-the-year trip to Disneyland. “He’s made a sacrifice,” Gapper said. WASHINGTON – David Pruden insisted he didn’t experience any horripilation Wednesday as he sailed through three rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. It was only when he missed a single letter of the word meaning “goose bumps” in the fourth round – spelling it h-o-r-r-i-p-u-l-a-t-i-o-n – that the 14-year-old Placerita Junior High School student felt any himself. “It was actually on my word list; I looked back and there it was,” David said after the competition, holding a hefty wad of lined notebook paper, each page containing three neat columns of 99 handwritten words. “I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I said to myself, `I saw the word three days ago.”‘ But David said he knows it was worth it. He doesn’t have any major plans for the summer, and his mother Connie said she thinks that’s best. Already this year, in addition to making it to Washington for the spelling competition, David has won the President’s Award for Academic Achievement, was nominated for a national math award, won a citizenship honor from his church group and was recognized for his voracious reading – about 25 books since January alone. “Riding up the escalator, he goes, `Now, no more studying,”‘ Connie said, laughing with her son in relief. “He needs a break. A brain break.” lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
