  • Real Madrid dispatches the Unionists with a discreet version

    first_img–OUTCOME: UNIONISTAS DE SALAMANCA, 1 – REAL MADRID, 3 (0-1, at rest).– ALIGNMENTS. Photo: EFE Those of Zidane go to eighths after being tied for a few minutes (1-3)So many of Bale, who was injured, Gongora (p.p.) and Brahim for whites He spent half an hour of the game and James, with an action of many carats, put the leather on the crossbar, but there was no way to expand the account. Without fuss, but with possession and authority, those of Zidane wasted up to three good occasions not to give life to their rival in the second round. And that was what happened after two opportunities sent to limbo. To top it off, Bale was no longer in the field suffering from another muscle injury.The first one was from James, who ran into Brais at 49 minutes in a very clear shot. That was when Jabi Luaces’ team found the lamp genie in an action that the people of Salamanca will never forget. Romero took the ball in three quarters of the field, caracoleó in front of Militao and found the hole to overcome Areola.The goal spurred Unionists, but Madrid did not succumb to its charms. Those of Zidane relied on the verticality of Vinicius and the Carvajal climbs to recover the mordant they had lost until then and just five minutes later they could find so much tranquility.Brahim seizes the opportunityMarcelo focused on the area and Brahim, just entered, finished off badly, but Gongora put it in his goal in an attempt to clear the ball. From there, the Unionists got rid of the white area, but it was Brahim who kissed the nets again. This time on a personal play on the right side.The Malaga whipped with his right leg and closed a game that will be historic for a club of only six years of life. The night of this January 22 will always be remembered because – for five minutes – they had against the ropes the 13 times European champion. Blessed new format, blessed Copa del Rey.DATA SHEET.center_img Real Madrid confirmed their classification for the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after getting rid of the Salamanca Unionists on Wednesday (1-3) in a discreet match of the merengue team that solved the goals of Gareth Bale and Brahim Díaz after the scare of the locals, who came to match the tie for five minutes.From 57 to 62, the Pistas de Salamanca vibrated as they had not done in the last two decades. The visit of the white galaxy became madness with the goal of Álvaro Romero. A left-footed shot from the heart of the area that slipped through the entire Areola squad. Fear was present for those of Zidane, especially for the previous notice to Barça.Real Madrid was warned to the Salamanca turf, but soon any hint of anxiety was removed from the middle. The person in charge was Bale, who achieved the 0-1 before reaching the equator of the first half. The Welshman connected with a right leg a center of James and his shot was introduced by the goalkeeper’s stick.The goal, which was not celebrated by the ‘Cardiff Express’, served to appease the spirits of the Unionists and also those of all the noisy local stands. In fact, that launch of Bale gave more dominance in the final meters and Benzema forgave the second after a shot that hit the side of the net. UNIONISTS: Brais; Gallego, Zubiri, Ayoze (Amouzou, min. 86), Góngora, Piojo; Javi Navas (Diego González, min. 80), Guille Andrés, De la Nava, José Ángel; and Garrido (Romero, min. 55).REAL MADRID: Areola; Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Valverde, James (Isco, min. 80); Vinicius, Bale (Brahim, min. 53) and Benzema (Jovic, min. 75).– GOALS:0 – 1, min. 18, Bale.1 – 1, min. 57, Romero.1 – 2, min. 62, Gongora, in own goal.1 – 3, min. 92, Brahim.–REFEREE: Melero López (C.

  • New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by nine wickets

    first_imgAUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP):Martin Guptill hit the fastest half-century by a New Zealand batsman, only for Colin Munro to better it moments later, as the hosts needed just 10 overs to rout Sri Lanka by nine wickets in their Twenty20 match yesterday, winning both matches of the series.Grant Elliott took 4-22 as New Zealand restricted Sri Lanka to 142-8 batting first.Guptill then reached his 50 off 19 balls, and Munro needed just 14 deliveries, hitting a six on the last ball of the 10th over to end the lopsided contest, with New Zealand finishing on 147-1.Munro’s half-century, which included seven sixes, was the second fastest in all T20 internationals, behind only a 12-ball 50 by India’s Yuvraj Singh.New Zealand had previously won the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka 2-0 and the five-match one-day series 3-1, with one match abandoned.In losing this series, Sri Lanka likely surrendered their top ranking in Twenty20 cricket to the West Indies ahead of the World Cup in India in March.Munro missed both the Test and one-day series but returned as a Twenty20 specialist, and his barnstorming innings should be enough to seal his place at No. 3 in the New Zealand order for the World Cup.He had a hard act to follow when he came to the wicket, with Guptill just out for 63 after an 89-run opening partnership with Kane Williamson. Guptill had already taken the long-handle to the Sri Lanka bowlers, hitting six fours and five sixes.”Guppy’s had a very good record this summer, and to beat that record was very pleasing for myself,” said Munro, who was named Man of the Match.New Zealand captain Williamson had the best seat in the house to watch the power hitting as he shared the swift opening stand with Guptill, then another of 58 with Munro. He finished with a comparatively sedate 32 not out from 21 balls.Sri Lanka leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay conceded 41 runs from two overs and Dushmantha Chameera 46 from three.Angelo Mathews held together the Sri Lanka innings with an outstanding unbeaten 81 from 49 balls, while his teammates too often threw away their wickets with rash shots. Tillakaratne Dilshan, who made 28, was the only batsman other than Mathews to bat responsibly.”I’m really disappointed with the way we played,” Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal said. “Thanks to Angelo, we were able to put a competitive total on the board, but I’m really disappointed with the way we bowled.”last_img read more

  • Horse patrols add cheer and safety

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe posse members – with 11 horses, some sporting Santa hats, reindeer antlers and bells – are ambassadors with badges. In addition to being a security measure, the mounted patrol adds to the mall’s festive atmosphere during the holidays, said Jalina Warner, the mall’s marketing director. “It’s an amenity to the customer,” she said. Vic Monroe, a two-year volunteer with the posse, gives kids candy canes from a stocking hanging from his saddle. “We are doing this for the community,” said Monroe, who lives in Castaic. His horse, Skip, a 13-year-old chestnut Appaloosa, doesn’t flinch when kids stand close and pet him. Horse and rider receive event-specific training to get them acclimated to sudden noises and movements. If the mounted patrols spot anything suspicious, they immediately notify nearby deputies. Posses help prevent crime because riders are sitting up on that high vantage point, said Peter Burnstein, who oversees the seven posses, 30 sworn officers and 100 civilian volunteers with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. “We are so visible that the bad guys watch their steps and stay away,” Burnstein said. Although they are large animals, horses have a calming effect on people. When he rides in a patrol car, Burnstein said, gang members will usually avoid law enforcement. All that changes when he is on his horse, a 13-year-old gelding named Ranger. “I will have gangbangers ask me politely, `Can I pet your horse?”‘ Burnstein said. In addition to patrolling shopping malls, posse members participate in parades, ceremonies, funerals, search and rescue, and crowd control. Lynn Barrow, an eight-year volunteer with the Santa Clarita posse, says being at the mall is a chance for kids to see the softer side of police work. Barrow and her 19-year-old mare, Missy, are easy to spot and hear with those matching green bells around their necks. During this shopping season, they make sure packages and cars aren’t stolen. They have helped at least 10 shoppers find their cars at shopping malls in Valencia and Palmdale, Barrow said. “We are just keeping everyone safe for the holidays,” she said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • PETA alleges animal cruelty in egg and meat industry

    first_imgThe People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India has called for sweeping changes to curb cruel practices in the egg and meat industry and has urged people to go vegan.A press release issued here by Mr. Sachin Bangera of PETA India here on Tuesday claimed that an investigation of several hatcheries and farms in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana had revealed that millions of male chicks as well as other unwanted chicks are commonly drowned, burned, crushed, thrown into rubbish bins, and even fed to other animals while still alive by top players in the industry.The investigation was conducted by Anonymous for Animal Rights.PETA has called on the government to consider implementing new in-ovo sexing technology (in which the chick’s gender is determined before it hatches), to establish and implement a written standard for painless euthanasia for unhealthy chicks, and to take stern action against companies that kill chicks in cruel ways.last_img read more

  • BJP mayoral candidates elected unopposed in Pimpri, Nashik

    first_imgPune: The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Nitin Kalje and Shailaja More, candidates for the mayoral post in the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), were elected unopposed as the mayor and the deputy mayor on Tuesday.The decks were cleared for Mr. Kalje after the Nationalist Congress Party’s (NCP) mayoral candidate, Shyam Lande, took back his nomination at the last minute.The mayor’s post is reserved for an OBC candidate for the first two-and-a-half years. With this election, Mr. Kalje has become the first BJP mayor of the PCMC.The party won a landslide victory in the recently concluded PCMC polls, bagging 77 of the 128 seats and breaking a decade-long hold of the Sharad Pawar-led NCP over the civic body. The NCP won only 36 seats, and many of its top leaders, like Mahesh Landge and Azam Pansare, had defected to the BJP in the run-up to the polls. There was disgruntlement in the BJP camp over Mr. Kalje’s candidature as he is widely perceived to be Mr. Landge’s pick. This alienated a strong faction within the party led by BJP MLA Laxman Jagtap, a former NCP heavyweight.History in NashikIn the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) too BJP candidates Ranjana Bhansi and Prathamesh Gite were elected unopposed as the mayor and the deputy mayor.The BJP swept the NMC as well, winning 66 of the 122 seats. The party had announced it’s mayoral candidature last week. The Congress had fielded Asha Tadvi as its mayoral candidate while the NCP had propped up Sushama Pagare for the deputy mayor’s post.However, at the request of the BJP candidates, the opposition withdrew the nominations of their candidates, thus making it the first instance where a mayor and a deputy mayor have been elected unopposed in the NMC. The mayoral post is reserved for a member from the Scheduled Tribes (ST) this time.The Shiv Sena, which secured the second position in the NMC with 35 seats, did not field any candidates for the mayoral polls.The deputy mayor, Mr. Gite, is the son of former MNS-turned BJP leader Vasant Gite, who was the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s mainstay in Nashik before he defected to the BJP in 2014.last_img read more
