A look at the teams in the Champions League quarterfinals

first_imgGENEVA— Three of the eight teams in Friday’s draw for the Champions League quarterfinals are three of the hundreds of teams that would have been excluded from a proposed Super League.Ajax, Porto and Tottenham were all left off the list of 16 teams included in the breakaway proposal — a proposal exposed last year and widely denounced.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

(AP Photo/Francois Mori)Twenty years after scoring the winning goal for United in a Champions League final, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to lead the team to the title as manager.After his understrength team’s amazing comeback at Paris Saint-Germain from a 2-0 first-leg loss, who would bet against them?There’s a “nothing to lose” feel about United, which was a huge outsider when qualifying for the knockout stage under Jose Mourinho.Solskjaer has restored some of the team’s belief and attacking swagger in three months in charge. See especially Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.It might not be enough for a fourth European title but it should be fun watching.PORTOPorto is, perhaps, the team everyone else in the draw wants to face.Coached by former player Sergio Conceicao, Porto is looking to go beyond the quarterfinals for the first time since 2004 when Jose Mourinho led the team to its second title.Porto has flavors of South America and Mexico in the team, plus a foundation of Champions League-winning former Madrid veterans: 37-year-old goalkeeper Iker Casillas and 36-year-old defender Pepe, who returned to his former club in January.Like Liverpool, Porto has a strong African influence in attack with Mali forward Moussa Marega its top scorer with six goals in the competition.

Liverpool also now has a world-class goalkeeper in Brazil international Alisson Becker.Few will relish going to Anfield in the last eight. Just ask Manchester City, which was swept aside 3-0 in the first leg last year to virtually end its Champions League ambitions.MANCHESTER CITYThis season seems like City’s best chance to become European champion since being taken over by its Abu Dhabi owners in 2008.No longer Champions League novices, City is in the quarterfinals for the third time in four years.The depth in Pep Guardiola’s squad is fueling a challenge for an unprecedented quadruple of trophies, having already won the English League Cup.City has benefited from benign draws, with Schalke shaping up as the weakest round of 16 option.

Liberia Gets Business Consortium

The Deputy Chief of Party for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Investing for Business Expansion (IBEX) project, Augustus Flomo, says a six-member consortium has been elected to help drive Liberia’s business sector to another level.The consortium includes William R. Dennis of Business Start-Up Center Monrovia, chairman; Samuel Thompson of Agency for Economic Development and Empowerment, co-chairman; Watchen H. Bruce of IBEX, secretary; and O. Natty B. Davis of Deveron Incorporated, legal adviser.Others are Sophiatou Colliee of Pact Liberia as legal affairs for the consortium and Edwina V. Lincoln of Business Link Incorporated as assistant secretary. Speaking Thursday at the end of a two-day workshop, which climaxed with the election of the consortium membership, Mr. Flomo said the officials would perform three major functions to help Liberians in the development of their businesses. The functions include standardizing business development across the country, working with stakeholders and elevating the conversations of business development. “I have explicit confidence in those elected to drive Liberian business development to another level,” said Flomo. “We have observed that many Liberian businesses have challenges in moving their businesses in terms of their marketing system, including records keeping, financial management and governance on how they make decisions on the growth of the businesses.” Mr. Flomo said the newly elected consortium would be officially introduced to the government and partners as well as donors on April 20 as the first team that is expected to take business to another level, including advocating for business development.According to him, many businesses or business owners don’t plan with targets, especially what they intend to achieve over a period of time, but praised IBEX for working with many businesses to ensure that some of those problems are solved or addressed for the development of businesses in Liberia.The IBEX project, USAID/IBEX aims to provide technical support and capacity building for SMEs in the agriculture, renewable energy, infrastructure, construction, general merchandise, transportation and hospitality chain sectors, with the aim of increasing use of the DCA.He said USAID/IBEX also provides technical support and capacity building for partner banks, IB Bank and EcoBank, to facilitate lending to SMEs and increase their use and management of the Development Credit Authority (DCA). The project consists of three numbers of components. Mr. Flomo explained that the third component of the project, which is exit or sustainability strategy, is meant to provide a landscape or system that those services from the project will continue to carry out by business development service providers across Liberia. It will also ensure that activities likementorship, giving advice, providing opportunity to access finance and training of people can be carried out. “We have had couple of workshops and meetings over the past four years with business development service providers and today happened to be the climax of such activities to be able to have a consortium of business development service providers in Liberia-to bring together all the players that are working in business development to set the standard,” he said.He stressed the need for such experts to help in educating other Liberians, especially at the business level, where those intending to engage in business or are already in business can be educated on how to grow their businesses.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) read more

Local products shine at marketplace ‘Uncapped’ exhibition

first_imgLocal producers were assembled at the Leonora Synthetic Track on the West Coast of Demerara (WCD) on Saturday to participate in the Marketplace Uncapped exhibition organised by the Guyana Marketing and Services Association (GMSA).The expo featured some 40 local booths that took advantage of the platform to showcase enterprises in the areas of clothing, craft, jewellery, food products, and beverages among other things. Many producers indicated that they would have been engaged in other similar exhibitions that were held over the past months in order for their products to reach a wider range of consumers.Guyana Times caught up with some of the small and large-scale producers, who shared their journeys on some of the products which they would have created, such as cereals, breads, herbal oils, wines, dolls and candles.Mohamed Qamar of Mohamed Enterprise said his business has been in operation for 18 years, and it began in Berbice with items such as photo frames and modelled dolls which were made from wood shaving, corn husks, coconut fibres and banana leaves.Lisa’s Beauty Supplies owner, Lisa Gibson, explained that her products, made from coconut oil, are for hair growth and healthy skin and scalp.“This is a salon that manufactures hair and body products made with coconut oil. We have a hair and scalp conditioner which replaces your normal hair and it don’t have no petroleum or no lanolin. We also have hair growth oil that is based with coconut oil and promotes hair growth and moisturises your hair as well,” she explained.Meanwhile, Lisa’s Manufacturing is an enterprise which produces Guyanese snacks and specialties which are made from locally sourced ingredients. These include jams, chips and confectionery.“We bring to you the best in authentic Guyanese flavours. What we manufacture and bring to the Guyanese public is the carambola fruit. We’ve also added some confectionery and snacks, such as plantain and cassava chips (and) tamarind balls; and we recently started the pineapple and guava jams,” said Christina Isurdeen.She noted that this is the second time the entity is bringing its products to the ‘Uncapped’ stage, and she posited that it is a good atmosphere to increase sales and gain advertisement.Thirteen women’s groups were also represented by the Women’s Agro-processing Network Development (WAND). These groups come from both the hinterland and the coast.From Region One (Barima-Waini) come the production of cocoa sticks and coffee; peanut butter and Acai wine come from Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); jams, jellies and relishes come from the Hillside Farm in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica); while coconut products and chutneys come from Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice); and Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) produces farine and cashew nuts.Group member Denise Thomas-Spencer noted that the packaging of these products poses a hindrance to making batches larger, since packaging is difficult and requires large inputs of time and resources.“We’re looking to make a larger amount, but the only setback that we have so far is the packaging, (which is) difficult and very tedious. A lot of people don’t know about some of our products, so we are glad that we can advertise these great products,” Thomas-Spencer said.Additionally, service providers and sponsors were present to educate potential clients on some of the facilities which are being offered by their respective businesses. Some of the sponsors, who injected resources into the expo, included ExxonMobil, the National Milling Company of Guyana (NAMILCO), Banks DIH, and Republic Bank.Guyanese were encouraged to try the local products, which are of good quality and made from ingredients that are produced right in Guyana. Additionally, these products can be trusted, since they are registered and correctly labelled.last_img read more

Juventus go second, AC Milan’s troubles continue

first_imgBosnian Pjanic opening the scoring with a stunning 27th-minute free-kick and turned provider nine minutes later, clipping over a beautiful pass to Mario Mandzukic that the Croat smartly chested down and stroked past Bologna keeper Antonio Mirante.Blaise Matuidi made sure of the points in the 64th minute with his first Serie A goal, the France international crashing a clearance back past Mirante on the half-volley.“I feel good, I’m improving, the team got the three points we needed and I am happy,” midfielder Pjanic said.“We have to be ready for the next match against Roma (in Turin on Saturday). They are a very strong side and will be challenging for the Scudetto.”Juve have kept four straight clean sheets in the league since losing at Sampdoria last month and never looked in trouble at Bologna, despite troubled talent Paulo Dybala being left out. Argentine Dybala was benched again by Allegri amid rumours of personal problems that have affected his form and he had something to prove when he was brought on with 15 minutes left.He forced a smart save from Mirante but looked a shadow of the player that helped fire Juve to the Champions League final last season.The crisis enveloping Juve’s fellow Italian giants Milan deepened after their 3-0 defeat at Verona, who handed Milan their eighth defeat of the season thanks to a powerful header from Antonio Caracciolo and two smart finishes from Moise Kean and Daniel Bessa.Milan’s expensively-assembled squad has failed to get going in Serie A, and they are languishing in seventh place on just 24 points, 18 points behind Napoli and 14 adrift of the fourth and final Champions League place.– ‘No excuses’ for Milan –“There are no excuses, we embarrassed ourselves,” said Gattuso after the defeat.“In the first 25 minutes we created loads of chances but they made us pay with their first opportunity. “Up until their first goal we played well, creating plenty, but we collapsed at the first obstacle put in our way, as has happened often this season.”Fourth spot is held by Roma, who are just four points behind Napoli with a game in hand on the top three after a dramatic 1-0 win over Cagliari on Saturday, decided in the 94th minute by Federico Fazio.Lazio are fifth, but are now nine points off top spot, albeit also with a game in hand, after a dramatic 3-3 draw at Atalanta on Sunday.Without the suspended Ciro Immobile, Sergei Milinkovic-Savic scored twice to draw Lazio level before half-time after falling two goals down early on.Josip Ilicic completed a double of his own from the penalty spot to put the hosts back in front, and although former Liverpool midfielder Luis Alberto equalised again, Lazio failed to find a winner.Crotone moved out of the bottom three with a 1-0 win over Chievo gained thanks to Ante Budimir’s 33rd-minute tap-in. Sassuolo snatched a last gasp 1-0 win at Sampdoria through Alessandro Matri, who made up for Matteo Politano’s 82nd-minute penalty miss for the away side.Ninth-placed Fiorentina are four points behind Sampdoria after their goalless draw with fourth-from-bottom Genoa, who are just a point above the drop zone.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic (R) celebrates after scoring with teammate Douglas Costa during the Italian Serie A football match Bologna vs Juventus at Renato Dall’Ara stadium in Bologna on December 17, 2017 © AFP / ALBERTO PIZZOLIMilan, Italy, Dec 17 – Juventus moved second in Serie A after a trademark Miralem Pjanic free-kick led the reigning champions to a comfortable 3-0 win at Bologna on Sunday, while AC Milan were plunged further into crisis by a heavy loss at lowly Verona.Massimiliano Allegri’s Juve are on 41 points, just a point behind leaders Napoli after leapfrogging Inter Milan, who suffered a shock first defeat of the season to Udinese on Saturday.last_img read more

Tech, too, cool for school

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Dozens of career-technical programs exist at local high schools, ranging from interactive media technology at Knight High to culinary arts and agribusiness at Littlerock High, information systems at Antelope Valley High, health careers at Palmdale High, and law and government at Highland High. The Career Prep council is recruiting businesses and other employers to offer internships for students, council chairman Randy Scott said. Internships give teens an opportunity to experience what a career would be like, he said. Teachers supervise the work the teens do. “We’ve got kids out in a lot of different courses and also got them doing projects,” said June Battey, the high school district’s School-to-Careers director. At Knight, Runner talked to multimedia students Catherine Barillas and Danilo Abrenica, who showed her the Knight High Web site maintained by students as well as a Devil’s Punchbowl Web site created with Keppel Union School District Gifted and Talented Education students. “I’m hoping for a career in computers or law. I like technology and I’m interested in law – either one,” said Barillas, who is in her third year of computer classes. PALMDALE – Assemblywoman Sharon Runner talked to teenagers making Web sites and video productions in a promotion for the Antelope Valley Union High School District’s career-preparation programs. The Lancaster assemblywoman visited Knight High School’s computer and video production classes on a tour for Career-Technical Education Month, sponsored by the Antelope Valley Career Prep Council. “Not every student is going to go to college,” Runner said, noting that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed state budget calls for putting $37.4 million into vocational education. “We need those mechanics. We need those home-builders … They’re good-paying jobs.” The Career Prep Council, an organization of educators, business people and other civic leaders, is conducting tours this month to show off career and technical-education programs both for teens who want to enter jobs right out of high school, as well as those heading to college and technical schools. Runner also visited Knight High’s video classroom, where students sat at glass-topped desks manipulating images on computer screens in a video-production class. Others were in a small studio used for taping the campus’s daily “Eye of the Hawk” news show, which goes out over the campus television system and online. Knight High is only 3 years old, so it has no graduates yet, but computer students have already done work for small businesses designing Web pages, computer sciences department chairwoman Sherry Garmon said. One student creates business cards for companies. Students also operate the school Web site, she said. “All I do is supervise. At that level they’re completely capable of handling the work themselves,” Garmon said. Garmon is trying to encourage more girls to enroll in the computer classes, made up now predominantly of boys. Such education is vital, she said. “If they have talent, they need to be out there in that field, not flipping hamburgers,” Garmon said. Career education tours are scheduled for Wednesday at Quartz Hill High School, Thursday at Lancaster High School and Feb. 28 at Littlerock High. The community is invited to join in the visits by scheduling with Battey at (661) 575-1025 or e-mail jbattey@avhsd.org. Charles F.

Man United target would prefer La Liga move if he leaves Bayern

first_imgJerome Boateng would prefer a move to Spain if he quits Bayern Munich this summer, in a setback for Manchester United’s pursuit of the German.Boateng, 29, has made it clear he wants to leave Bavaria and the club have told him they will not stand in his way should an approach be made. Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Bayern have indicated they would be willing to accept a low transfer fee from any clubs interested in Boateng, keen to get rid and avoid a long-protracted transfer saga.“His thoughts about leaving Bayern still exist, as his agent has told me,” the club’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.“We know that this topic might be approaching.
