Leo Messi also wants to lend a hand to end the coronavirus, a pandemic that has plagued the planet since last January and which at this point amounts to around 415.00 infected and 18,500 deaths.As you have been able to know ACE, the Argentinean has donated around million euros to be distributed between the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona and another in Argentina. In this way, the Barça star has wanted to have a detail with his country of origin and with the city that welcomed him with only thirteen years. This financial aid will improve the situation of hospitals, which struggle to have the necessary materials to face this type of virus that It causes pneumonia with greater impact in the elderly. And Catalonia is one of the areas hardest hit by COVID-19 in Spain with almost 8,000 infected and 282 deceased, according to data provided by health on the morning of this Tuesday.For his part, Argentina adds 306 infections and so far six people have died, but the figure is expected to increase as the coronavirus has later arrived in South America. In both countries citizens are confined at home to lower the contagion curve.
Mother’s Day prison celebrations– acknowledges partying inmates could burn down another prisonTechnology and the professionalising of the Guyana Prison Service are a few of the strategies Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has in mind to combat corruption within the prisons.During an Alliance for Change (AFC) press conference, Ramjattan was asked about the infamous images circulated with inmates at the New Amsterdam Prison partying with an expensive arrays of liquor, as well as gambling and smoking.Ramjattan expressed the belief that rogue elements of the Prison Service are colluding with the very prisoners they were supposed to guard. Citing the low salary being earned by prison officers compared to their overseas counterparts, heMinister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattannoted that some of them see nothing wrong with trafficking.The minister related that he was able to observe the Prison and Police system while on a recent trip to Phoenix, Arizona as part of the CariSecure work study tour there. Ramjattan described the system as “extremely advanced”, revealing that many of the officers there are college graduates who are paid a minimum of US$6400. He contrasted this with local officers being paid a maximum of US$400.“I honestly believe that this is being done by some rogue elements in our prison system. The prison warders are doing this, colluding with them (prisoners). There is no doubt in my mind… So you could understand that some of them feel the norm is to go and carry the cocaine for all these big boys, and their families will pay them,” Ramjattan said.“Honesty also comes from the individual knowing that when you do this, it could be a major security risk. Somebody could get high and then burn down the prison,” the minister also added.MeasuresIn terms of technology for the prisons, Ramjattan said he would make an attempt to acquire security scanners. According to Ramjattan, if acquired, the scanners would be placed at the entrance to all prisons, including the prison at Mazaruni, Region Seven.But the minister cautioned that the equipment was expensive. According to Ramjattan, he has held talks with Minister of Public Telecommunications, Catherine Hughes, and persons who are inclined to help Guyana in this regard.Prisoners displaying drugs, money and cell phones“Technology is expensive. I will try again this year to get the scanner for all these prisons. We understand, too, that we had a scanner for some place and the people just bypass the scanner; so we really have to professionalise our prison warders,” Ramjattan said.Besides the pictures, a video of the party- loving prisoners had also come to light. The video had shown some of the same prisoners featured in photos shared on social media, not only drinking alcoholic beverages, but smoking marijuana and costing a significant amount of cash.In one clip, a prisoner is filmed counting at least 12 single $5000 bills as he places them on a plate that was filled with what appeared to be cannabis and other prohibited substances.Another clip showed the prisoners boasting about the “sweet life” that they are enjoying despite awaiting trial on rape, murder, robbery under arms, simply larceny, and gun-related offences.ResignationsThere are those who see the prevailing lack of control in the prisons in the context of 2016’s fire that resulted in the deaths of over a dozen prisoners, as well as last year’s jail break and fire that gutted most of the Camp Street Prison; and they have called for heads to roll.In particular, the Indian Action Committee (IAC) has called for Ramjattan himself to be held accountable by President David Granger for the continuing lapses in the security sector.According to the IAC in a recent statement, “Minister of Public Security and Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan has proved himself to be incapable, inept and incompetent to carry out the political responsibility for the prison service, given the spate of unfortunate events which have taken place under his leadership of the sector.”While Granger had recently expressed worry about the lapse at the prison, the IAC had specifically called on the President to immediately request Minister Ramjattan’s resignation, failing which he should be dismissed. Nor did it stop at Ramjattan.“The IAC is also of the belief that the Director of Prisons, Gladwin Samuels, is also incapable, inept and incompetent to administer the prison system of Guyana, and the organisation is calling on President Granger to request his resignation, or failing which, to dismiss him,” the IAC had said in its release.
“It’s just the way he graces the pitch,” Lingard said on Thursday. “He’s silky, an intelligent footballer and people have said I’m an intelligent footballer.“I have to learn off these sorts of players that play in the same position as me.”Alves, the Brazilian right-back not in Russia due to injury, is Kieran Trippier’s benchmark.“He’s won nearly every trophy out there as an attacking full-back,” Trippier said. “He’s definitely a player I’ve admired and looked up to.”But as England were kicking off their ill-fated campaign in Brazil in 2014, Lingard and Trippier were resting up after a long season in the Championship, Lingard on loan at Brighton and Trippier at Burnley.England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has enjoyed a meteoric rise © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONThat they are now preparing to face Tunisia in England’s opening game in Group G on Tuesday marks a remarkably rapid rise but their ascent is not unique, nor even the steepest, in Gareth Southgate’s youthful squad.Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, expected to start in Saint Petersburg, had just been playing for Carlisle in League One four years ago, the same division Dele Alli was establishing himself at Milton Keynes Dons and Harry Maguire at Sheffield United.Nick Pope, meanwhile, was in League Two, keeping goal for York while Marcus Rashford, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trent Alexander-Arnold were yet to make a senior appearance, still playing youth football at Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool respectively.It leaves England’s squad, the third youngest at the World Cup, low on experience but high on exuberance.“For us it’s just about playing with that freedom and enjoyment but also going out there to win and play exciting football,” Lingard said.– ‘Insight’ –“We don’t fear the big stage. You’ve just got to enjoy it, embrace the moments. You’re with your team-mates playing football and it is a job you love doing.”Lingard left his home in Warrington aged 12 to enrol with Manchester United but he needed four loan spells before finally making his debut under Louis van Gaal.Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney were among those available to give advice but it was Paul Scholes whom Lingard looked up to most.“I think it was just because I was around him at the time I was coming through,” Lingard said. “I just asked him questions like ‘do you go out?’, stuff like that. I was wondering, wanted to get an insight.”Trippier was left sidelined by Manchester City’s rush of riches in 2008 and has emerged for England via Barnsley, Burnley and, most recently, a break-out season at Tottenham.When Southgate handed him his debut against France a year ago this week, his parents were in the crowd, both in tears as they witnessed the apex of their son’s career.In Volgograd on Tuesday, they will watch him reach a new peak.“I’ve got my brothers out here, my dad, about 15 people in total so a lot of tickets to sort out,” Trippier said.“And at home I’ve got my grandma who lives three doors down and the rest of my family. I think they’ll be watching us.”It may not be the golden generation but England’s current crop have endured a winding journey to this point. Lingard says they are better for it.“Of course there were doubts,” Lingard said.“But it toughens you up. I think you know in your own head where you want to be and where you want to get to as a professional footballer. The dream is still alive and you’ve got to keep it alive.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000England’s Jesse Lingard is in Russia after a breakthrough season with Manchester United © AFP/File / GLYN KIRKSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 14 – England’s young guns are talking about emulating Andres Iniesta and Dani Alves but four years ago they watched the World Cup on the back of spells at Burnley, Brighton, Carlisle and York.Jesse Lingard cites Spain’s Iniesta as the player he most likes to watch.

The A’s won 97 games in 2018 and barely wiggled into the American League’s second wild card spot. There’s a chance they will have to exceed last year’s mark to secure a playoff berth in 2019.With Tampa Bay and Cleveland both neck-and-neck with 92-64 records (as of Monday afternoon), the A’s hold a slight edge for home-field advantage in a wild card game with 94 wins and six games left — the magic number down to five — to clinch.Here is a look at how each team’s next six games will play out. …

This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in Once again, the “in” box on my desk is beginning to fill up with a stack of brochures describing interesting new products.I’ve selected four products to review in this latest roundup: an insert panel to improve the thermal performance of insulated concrete forms (ICFs); a new wall system for manufactured stone veneer; and two new water-resistive barriers (WRBs).A manufacturer of insulated concrete forms (ICFs), Reward Wall System of Omaha, Nebraska, is now selling polystyrene panels that can be slipped inside of ICFs to improve a wall’s R-value. This product will prove useful, since many ICFs have a relatively low R-value.Called Boost-R panels, the new foam rectangles come with notches that slide over the ICF form ties and rebar chairs. Of course, these Boost-R panels take up room that would normally be filled with concrete. So if you want to use these insulation inserts, you’ll need to order ICFs with thicker-than-usual cores. If you ordinarily use an ICF with a 6-inch-thick concrete core, and you’d like to insert 4 extra inches of foam on one side of the wall, you’ll need to order ICFs with a 10-inch core.Boost-R panels are 2 inches thick and are available in several different densities (1, 1.5, and 2 pounds per cubic foot). If you want more than 2 inches of extra insulation, it’s possible to insert two layers of 2-inch thick Boost-R panels inside the core of a thick ICF.The manufacturer claims that its 1.5 pound/cubic foot polystyrene has an R-value of R-4.17 per inch. That means that a 15-inch ICF with a 10-inch-thick core equipped with a 4-inch-thick Boost-R panel can have an R-value of R-38.Two-inch-thick Boost-R panels cost between 95¢ and $1.85 per square foot, depending on the foam density and the quantity ordered.Of course, there is a…
Monitor your statements: A survey conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston found that in 2012, more than 70 percent of consumers in the U.S. had at least one credit card. Unfortunately, the ease and convenience of using a credit card comes with the additional risk of having credit card information stolen. It is important to routinely monitor your credit card statements to identify any unauthorized activity on your account. If you discover that your credit card information has been compromised, use this helpful guide to learn what to do next. Secure your personal information: At home, make sure your personal information is stored in a secure location or is password-protected on a secure computer. Do not carry your social security card in your wallet and only provide your social security number when absolutely necessary. It’s also a good idea to shred any documents you don’t need–such as credit applications and offers or bank statements–that contain sensitive information. If you are required to provide an organization with your personal information, ask them what exactly they need it for and what measures they have in place to protect it. Check your Credit Report: Obtaining a free credit report once a year is an effective way to make sure that your identity has not been stolen. Identity thieves often open accounts or obtain loans using your personal information, and these activities will show up on your credit report. You may even consider implementing a credit freeze which restricts access to your report and makes it more difficult for identity thieves to open accounts under your name. By Ayesha Haider, BA, MBA, AFC CandidateIdentity theft is referred to as the “fastest growing white collar crime in America” by the Office of the Inspector General. Having your identity stolen can result in your hard earned funds being fraudulently withdrawn from your account and it can also have serious implications for your credit report and score, negatively impacting your eligibility for employment and favorable loan terms. The following methods outline some basic ways you can protect your personal information from falling into the wrong hands:Learn to identify phishing scams: Phishing requests are emails or other electronic correspondence you may receive asking for your personal information. Such requests are made to seem like they are being sent by a legitimate organization that you are affiliated with such as a bank, department store, or email-hosting service. Phishing requests are notoriously difficult to identify and often even the most Internet-savvy of us fall victim to these elaborate schemes. Learn how to tell if an email is a phishing scam by using CIO.com’s very useful guide or take the phishing IQ test to see if you can distinguish a phishing scam from a legitimate request. Guard your mail: Identity thieves often obtain personal information by stealing your mail and/or responding to pre-approved credit offers you receive in the mail. Avoid falling victim to mail fraud by checking your mail frequently and shredding any financial offers/documents you receive in the mail. To learn more about identity theft through mail, visit the S. Postal Inspection Service website.The best way of preventing identity theft is educating yourself on how you can best protect your personal information. Read up on what to do if your identity is stolen and monitor your credit card and bank account statements routinely to identify and unauthorized transactions soon after they occur.Photo by Jeff TurnerTo learn more ways to protect yourself and empower your clients against identity theft schemes, join our webinar on Tuesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. ET. Dr. Barbara O’Neill and Carol Kando-Pindea of the Federal Trade Commission will present a 90-minute webinar that identifies new ways thieves are stealing personal information and ways to prevent becoming a victim.
