Powered by Firework Phillipe Coutinho is not seeming to be very much happy at Barcelona at this moment. It is evident that the star Brazilian attacking midfielder is going to leave Camp Nou at the end of this season. Phillipe Coutinho is now not regular in the starting lineup of the Catalan Giants in this season under the management of Ernesto Valverde. It is seeming that the manager is liking the way Coutinho is playing nowadays.Advertisement Phillipe Coutinho was not in the first team of Barcelona in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash against Lyon. After that incident, the rumours of his departure are getting stronger than ever. Accoding to the sources, the next destination of the former Liverpool midfielder is going to be Paris Saint Germain. Barcelona are also interested to bring in the German midfielder Julian Draxler in the next summer transfer window. So, a swap deal is on the cards involving these two players.Advertisement However, Paris Saint Germain have still not shown a real interest to bring in Phillipe Coutinho in their squad yet. So, we will have to wait and assess the situation in the next summer to see how things go on between these two clubs.Barcelona officially announce Frenkie De JongAdvertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

The off-field news continues

first_imgSerious questions are being asked throughout community football and netball after the removal of the second local AFL Victoria regional commission in almost exactly a year.The AFL Gippsland commission was unceremoniously dumped on 14 May last year, and on 8 May this year a decision was announced to “restructure football governance” in the AFL South East region, through the removal of its commission.A letter, seen by the Gazette, sent recently by Richard Black – the head of South Eastern Victoria, who oversees both AFL Gippsland and AFL South East – said: “Effective from today (8 May), the AFL South East commission has been restructured with the majority of its former members transitioning to an advisory committee, which a Terms of Reference is being finalised with further information to follow in due course.“This has seen changes to the commission structure, including AFL Victoria having representation on the AFL South East commission. This will allow AFL Victoria to provide greater support and investment into the region for the future.“The advisory committee will assist the AFL South East commission by providing expert advice and guidance to football and netball decisions and issues. It will also continue to work with local leagues, presidents, and clubs to ensure that our sports are accessible to all and placed in the best position to grow and thrive”.The AFL South East commission included chairman Roger Hampson, and commissioners Molina Asthana, Doug Bailey, Fraser Bayne, Scott Grimster, Russell Jacgung, Anita Jonceski, Paul Theobald, Ted Turner, and Peter Wakeling.AFL South East executives, including Richard Black, were asked a series of questions by the Gazette about a week ago. These questions echoed those that are being asked right throughout the local football and netball community.To this point, the Gazette is yet to receive an answer to the following:Why was the AFL South East commission removed?What makes AFL South East well-equipped enough to handle the region’s operations moving forward?Is there enough of a separation of powers between both AFL South East and AFL Gippsland, and AFL Victoria – given the commissions of both has been dumped? Some are viewing AFL Victoria as the proverbial ‘judge, jury, and executioner’ when it comes to league and competition structures.What does Richard Black’s role at AFL South East and AFL Gippsland actually entail? What exactly is the ‘Head of South Eastern Victoria’ role and why did it come about?What is AFL South East’s plan for the South East Juniors (SEJ), given so many of its clubs are now intertwined with the Southern Football Netball League (SFNL), AFL Outer East, and even the West Gippsland Football Netball Competition (WGFNC)?What will the relationship be between AFL Gippsland and AFL South East moving forward, given how massive the combined (South Eastern Victoria) area is and how many clubs are involved?Could the SEJ potentially leave AFL South East?More to come.

Overseas-based Guyanese presents school hampers to Mashabo Primary students

first_imgmany school children from the Amerindian community of Mashabo in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) were the beneficiaries of school hampers, compliments of a Guyanese living in Canada.The journey to MashaboThe donation of two barrels of goodies and stationary hampers were handed over to teachers of the school on Wednesday, by relatives of the donors. At a handing-over ceremony held on the community’s wharf, one of the donor’s sisters, Seerie Prashad, said the barrels were sent to Guyana under her sister, Deka Dhaness Children’s Christmas Project. Prashad handed over the barrels to a teacher, Ovid Phillips.The donor, Deka Dhaness, she said she was very happy to provide for the children in that community. She made this disclosure during an interview with the media. Dhaness said the project started in 2011 with the aim of helping children go to school as well as spreading cheer to them during the festive season of Christmas. Each child received a bag, pens, pencils, notebooks, crayons, toothbrush, toothpaste, face rags, hair accessories, candy and toys.When asked why she chose that particular Amerindian community for the donation, Dhaness said that her heart goes out to the children, as often children in that far-flung community are “forgotten” because of their geographical locations.She said too that she grew up in the neighbouring community of Huist Diren and recalled her brother spending vacations in Mashabo, among the children there.Meanwhile at the presentation, the headmaster expressed gratitude towards Dhaness and the project. He said the parents of the children are grateful for the timely help. Mashabo is an Amerindian community located in the Iturbsi lake in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) whose Toshoa is Sylvin Rapheal.last_img read more

Super Mario back at Liverpool

first_img0Shares0000Balotelli spent last season on loan at AC Milan but the club decided against purchasing him permanent.PHOTO/DMUNITED KINGDOM, July 2 – Mario Balotelli said two months ago that he did not want to return to Liverpool but on Saturday the striker was back with his team-mates at Melwood training ahead of next season.The Italy international spent last season on loan at AC Milan but the club decided against purchasing him permanently, as Balotelli scored just once in 20 appearances in Serie A. Dejan Lovren was glad to see him, though, as the defender hugged the striker on his return to Merseyside.Liverpool paid £16m for Balotelli in August 2014 but in his single season at Anfield scored four goals in 28 matches, with only one in the Premier League.Jurgen Klopp is still keen to offload the Italian striker and was also at the training session, joking around with his coaching staff.It was in April when Balotelli said: “When it comes to my future I want to stay with Milan because I wasn’t happy at Liverpool and I don’t want to return there. And plus, Milan has the money.“I’ve been doing well in my last two games, there are another six for me to prove myself. I feel in good shape physically at last and am relaxed.”There were also reports that Balotelli met with Monaco’s president, Dmitry Rybolovlev, amid a transfer to Ligue 1.Balotelli’s return to Liverpool comes as he also said he thinks it is only a matter of time until he wins the Ballon d’Or award.“I have not done enough in recent years. I can do much better. But it takes time,’ Balotelli told Corriere della Sera.“On a scale of one to 10, I have only reached five. But I will get to 10 eventually, because that is my goal.“I want to win the Ballon d’Or. Although I realise I got stuck at five out of 10 in the last two years when my goal was to get closer to 10. I know people will laugh when I say I want the Ballon d’Or.“I have not done everything needed to become the best.“But the most important thing is that I have realised my mistakes and it is not too late yet. I don’t want to reach the end of my career thinking that I have not done everything to become the best.”-By Daily Mail-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ayala plans to ease path to preschool

first_imgShe replaces Gary Mangiofico at LAUP. Mangiofico is now the chief executive officer of the nonprofit agency.LAUP helps fund and train staff at Los Angeles County preschool programs, whether public, private, home-based or center-based.It receives funding from First 5 LA, the regional agency that hands out monies from the state tobacco-tax initiative, Proposition 10.“Celia has spent the past 31 years passionately working on behalf of children throughout Southern California,” Mangiofico said.“We have an aggressive agenda to promote and support a quality preschool experience for every 4-year-old in Los Angeles and we’re excited to have her with us,” he added.“Her experience and knowledge will help further guide LAUP in the years to come.”Ayala came to the United States when she was 10, grew up in Boyle Heights and earned a bachelor’s degree in social science and Spanish at USC.She received a master’s degree in educational administration and curriculum and instruction from Cal State Los Angeles, and a doctorate in policy studies and curriculum instruction from USC.Ayala moved to Whittier in 1977 after she married, and now lives in the Uptown area with her husband and two sons.As part of LAUP, Ayala helps fund and oversee Whittier-area home day-care programs and local Plaza de la Raza and Options preschools.When LAUP first began, preschool access ranged anywhere from 11 percent to 70 percent of eligible families in the county. Now, that figure is closer to 58 percent in most cities, Ayala said.“We have been able to level out the resources to create a more equitable system,” she said. “Our goal is to bring it up to 70 percent across the cities, to saturate the entire county with the access to universal preschool.“That way, the access truly becomes more of an open-door for families,” she added.“I’m impressed by how much LAUP has accomplished in such a short time, and I’m looking forward to reaching new heights with the organization.” 698-0955, Ext. 3051160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “So the gap kept getting larger as they were promoted,” said Ayala, 53, a Whittier resident. “And that’s when I realized if we we do a good job of preparing them for a successful kindergarten experience, they would also be successful in first grade, second grade, and so on.”Now, as the newly appointed chief operating officer for Los Angeles Universal Preschool, Ayala gets to use those firsthand experiences to help make preschool available to all 4-year-olds in the county.“My dream is just that: universal access, without limit. All parents would have that choice, regardless of their level of income,” Ayala said. “And it is also to make sure we offer parents the choice of a private or public preschool, a family child care center or a center-based program.”Over her career, Ayala has taught at the elementary, middle and high school levels and also served as an administrator for school districts like El Rancho Unified in Pico Rivera and Pasadena Unified, as well as the county offices of education in Los Angeles and Riverside. • Video: 7/30: Celia Ayala visits preschool WHITTIER — When Celia Ayala was teaching third grade in Pico Rivera nearly three decades ago, she saw a pattern emerging in her young students that would later inspire her to help lead the charge for universal preschool in Los Angeles County.Because of social promotion, Ayala said, third-graders were coming into her class not having learned even the basics of reading and writing.By the time they were in her instructional hands, their educational gap was “one, two and three years wide.”last_img read more
