Badajoz 2 – Las Palmas 1Possession couple, few occasions … The game at the Nuevo Vivero was nothing more than what it seemed should be a 0-0 in the first half. However, two sparks from the Badajoz consecrated what a deed would be an hour later. The first one did Sliding Alex at 24 minutes of meeting; the second turned it Chris Bouquets, Valladolid footballer, just 120 seconds later. The great merit of the local team, beyond the goals, is that it knew how to contain the onslaught of a Second Division. At least until Kirian cut differences with still much second part to play. Pedri even went in to try to solve a ballot that had become too complicated. But it does not work. Even the Badajoz could celebrate the third, after committing penalty goalkeeper Martinez and being expelled accordingly. How is football: the center had to be put under the sticks Deivid and managed to stop the launch. There was no time for more and the score continued to reflect the local domain. A blow on the table and a thousand reasons to celebrate. The New Nursery already remembers other times. ‘Su’ Badajoz is in sixteenths.Cultural Leonesa 2 – Huesca 1Football seemed placid for Huesca when Raba, just start the game, made a great goal. Ideal situation: play against a team of lower category and get ahead in the early stages, released tension and gave wings. Thus, the goal was close after a shipment of Ivi that no one arrived. They say that the round trip always hurts the little one, but it didn’t happen that way in the Kingdom of León. The Cultural Leonesa knew that she needed to change something if she wanted to win the duel and the first step was the entry of an electric Kawaya. From his boots came the equalizer. He played a game and Sergio Benito completed the merit of his partner. But the party was not over. The stopwatch was about to arrive at minute 90, when Kawaya himself scored from eleven meters for a historic victory. Not so long ago that the Cultu competed with the greats and now it will do it again. Who knows if before one of the Super Cup or perhaps before another First Division. The only certainty is that the night will be long in León and the trip, eternal for the team of Míchel.Recreational 0 (5) – Fuenlabrada 0 (4)Another Second Division eliminated. Fuenlabrada fell in the networks of the New Colombino and falls off in the second round. The match was in neutral phase and only the balance was broken when those of Mere Hermoso approached the rival area. Chico Flores connected a header that was almost gone; Nteka was annulled a goal for a much protested foul; Javi Gómez almost scored after a good shot … It was a very physical match, midfield and resilience. Nteka again warned and, shortly after, did it again. Nauzet repelled a header from José León and then the contest calmed down. In the extension, the local goalkeeper reappeared to make Anderson a break. It was strength and delivery of Recre, who found his prize on penalties, with Alberto failing the third of the fateful batch. The Dean of Spanish football will be measured with the greatest, as before.Cartagena 2 – Girona 4Cartagonova saw an improper colossus duel of the second round of competition. Cartagena broke the strength that has led it to be one of the best teams in the entire Second Division and raised an open, beautiful game of opportunities and good looks. Stuani was not of the game and a local footballer wanted to implement his brand. Jovanovic finished twice and Riesgo had to offer his best version to save the furniture. The lathe changed when Jonahan Soriano finished off a center from the right side, overtaking his team. Meanwhile, Jovanovic kept trying and the statistics supported him: 5-1 on goal shots. The deserved reward came in the boots of Álex Martín, shortly before José Ángel put his own ahead. He could even sentence William, who was shot down when he left alone, but the referee decided not to admonish the action as claimed by all the fans. Soccer is also a matter of miracles: Ignasi Miquel, on the last play, tied, unleashing the most absolute silence in Cartagonova. You know, they say that whoever forces the extension ends up getting the cat into the water. Jonathan Soriano and Carlos Martínez made it possible. Girona survives in the Cup, without Stuani, and will be with the best.Logroñés 1 (4) – Cádiz 1 (2)David Querol, by Caye Quintana. 24 minutes of the game and the Second Division leader was also flying in the Copa del Rey in the direction of the round of 16. It was better, at least in the first half of the game. He did not grant a single shot until half an hour of the match and added significant possession figures (70%). Quezada, Caye Quintana … The opportunities kept coming for the visiting team, before a Logroñés that grew as the minutes passed. So much so that, in what was a jug of cold water for the Cadiz team, he managed to draw thanks to one of his reference players: Caye Quintana. The striker scored in 88 ‘, leaving the game for extra time. Precisely Vitoria himself pardoned in the 101st minute, finding a ball inside the area and throwing it incomprehensibly out. Nano Mesa, to balance the final balance, also missed a stop by Fid. In a new round of penalties, Errasti marked the final and gave a new magical night to Las Gaunas. The cry of goooool! It will keep coming, maybe with a big one in between. And at the cost of overthrowing the command of Second. Triumph of height.Sestao River 0- Athletic 4For Athletic the Cup is something very serious. Garitano demonstrated this, with the entry in the eleven of Williams, Raúl García, Iñigo Martínez or Yeray. But success came by other paths. Yuri, at a very high level, scored a double and Villalibre, who may not have enjoyed the opportunities he would like, set his best game in the first team with two other goals to add to his locker. The Sestao River dressed Las Llanas of the best finery and had a reception that many European teams would sign well in the previous one of a great night of Champions, but on the lawn everything was different. The locals did not even endure fifteen minutes the onslaught of an Athletic that changes the face in the KO tournament. Everything was good news: the level of the quarry, the moment of the sides, the return of Iker Muniain and the brotherhood between two Basque clubs that were measured in the Cup and drinks will be taken in the future. I miss the score: a 0-4 that qualifies Athletic and brings Sestao River back to reality.Badalona 2 – Getafe 0The big surprise of Saturday’s day of the second round of the Copa del Rey was carried out by Badalona in the Municipal. Everything was born, perhaps, of the expulsion of Timor at half an hour of the game. There was a difference in category, but the fact of playing with a less man inevitably imbalances the balance of one who has numerical superiority. Even so, the ‘Geta’ had his options, but the physicist ended up taking their toll. And that Bordalás put the most usual, but it was useless. The boards remained until the final stretch and, when Getafe already thought about how to face another half hour with wear and ten players, Chema Moreno’s goal came. Five minutes to tie, but, nothing is further from reality, Esteban finally sentenced with the collaboration of Chichizola. Surprise height, which complements the collapse of LaLiga SmartBank clubs. One more for the Morales collection, myth of Second B and, why not, with a book yet to be written in the Cup.Tamaraceite 0 – Granada 1The magic of the Cup is also to forgive mistakes and draw positive conclusions from missing out on a historic opportunity. This is what happens with the Tamaraceite, which was announced by eliminating a newly arrived José María Gutiérrez from Almería last December. Against Granada he was able to complete his deed, but he stayed at the doors. And that had more possession and a similar number of auctions. Soldier gave a great pass to Puertas, who scored the first goal of the game. Then came what will be in the corners of Juan Guedes for quite some time. Gonzalez decided to throw a penalty to Panenka and he went to the stick. The stadium fell silent before the missed opportunity, but even more so when the referee showed the eleven meters again, but in the opposite direction. For his fortune and as a balance of the above, Vadillo missed the maximum penalty. In the second half, the Canarian team continued trying, without any success. They say goodbye to the Cup with their heads up and Granada will face the challenge of the 16th.Orihuela 1 – Villarreal 276% possession, 43 total shots, 15 shots on goal, 17 out, 20 corners, 13 Aitor stops … The statistics reflect a Villarreal era win, but football is much more than attacking. It is also to resist and the Orihuela made a master’s degree in defending himself in the elite and stoically resisted the gorges of the Calleja team. The first to overthrow the wall was Gerard Moreno at 73 minutes. Los Arcos fell silent after believing that their players would be able to endure until closing. It was not so, but perhaps they did not expect Brian to score the equalizer in the 83 ‘. In the extension the same pattern was repeated. He went on and on and followed again the team trained by Calleja. With Bacca failing the infallible and Aitor taking out prodigious hands. The penalties were the prize, they did not aspire to celebrate before. Although his real gift was to put up with such a team of such potential. That they take, regardless of whether Gerard Moreno did football justice two minutes from the fateful batch. Orihuela says goodbye and Villarreal will continue to combine two competitions. The Copa del Rey has again shown that the new format gives oxygen to the little ones and, above all, more excitement on the other side of the screen. The Second Division returned to live a black day, with more eliminations than successes, despite the fact that all the parties dragged a category difference between the two contestants. The Cádiz, the Ponferradina, the Albacete, Las Palmas, the Huesca and the Fuenlabrada they have said goodbye to the KO tournament; with only Saragossa, Mirandés, Tenerife, Elche Y Girona giving the size. In fact, the team of Miranda de Ebro, Tenerife and Girona needed extension or penalties to achieve it. Neither did the First ones: Osasuna, Majorca, Pomegranate, Villarreal Y Valladolid they played on the edge and the Getafe fell eliminated before the Badalona. With detractors and diehard, This Cup does not leave you indifferent. It is a round trip, of emotion, of crying wearing your team’s shirt before a historic day, and of celebrating goals that are recorded in mind and not on screen. The Cup of Surprises, the Cup of All.Nàstic de Tarragona 1 – Zaragoza 3The game of bad luck we have lived in the Nou Estadi. The two goals that the locals scored in their own goal were a slab that was too heavy against Zaragoza that had a more than comfortable match Thanks to this curious situation. In the second part they tried to react the Catalans by cutting distances, but a goal by Papu in the last minutes of the match ended with the illusions of Nàstic, which he sees as his career in the Cup vanishes. Zaragoza will be in the hype next Tuesday.Haro Deportivo 1 – Osasuna 2In La Rioja we almost lived the first surprise of this second round of Copa del Rey. The Haro Deportivo managed to put Osasuna on the ropes in the 71st minute thanks to Mikel Bueno’s goal, but Arrasate reacted quickly and put Adrián López and Chimy Ávil in the fieldto. The rojillo team received the technician’s orders instantly and four minutes later he matched the contest thanks to a goal from Nacho Vidal. After the match, it seemed that the game was going to reach extra time, but a goal of a Chimy Ávila who does not give a lost match saved Osasuna from burning.Zamora 0 – Mallorca 1Febas was too much for Zamora pundoroso that did not give up at any time and had the draw on the edge of the end of the game. But the goal of the Real Madrid squad the first half decanted a duel in which the locals lacked poison to have options to make the opponent suffer. The vermilion win oxygen and moral and will play the next round. According to Vicente Moreno, Mallorca has done “a serious game. “” We deserved to pass, we took the tie very seriously“, said.UCAM Murcia 2 – Mirandés 3The Mirandés has sweated rivers of ink to get the pass to the second round. Those of Anduva have needed the extension to overcome a UCAM Murcia and the figure of Álvaro Rey has once again become the protagonist in a new feat of Mirandés. When it seemed that the game was going to penalties, the midfielder, in 114 ‘, declined the balance for those of Iraola. The game was more than vibrant in which the blows of both teams were constant, worthy of this Copa del Rey.Portugalete 0 – Betis 3Betis takes the Cup very seriously. Rubi raised an eleven with many headlines, which premiered as headline Aleña and shone to the beat of his companions. With a 82% possession, from minute 1 it was evident on the La Florida lawn that the illusion of the Portugalete is not enough to bring down a colossus of LaLiga Santander. However, only a cannon shot at Álex Moreno’s squad broke the boards in the first half. It’s more, Alberto He forgave in a hand to hand with Joel on the edge of rest. Forgiveness before an elite pays dearly … Just start the second half, Loren, upside down, widened differences and left him seen for sentencing. The shaft worked so well that Rubi only presented a change. Joaquin entered Tello and closed a match that gives morals and, above all, a place in sixteenths.Real Murcia 0 – Leganés 4Javier Aguirre already said that they took it as another domestic national championship match and this was demonstrated by his players on the turf of Enrique Roca de Murcia. The coach himself also confirmed his intentions by putting important players like En-Nesyri or Jonathan Silva. Because there is no better medicine than a classification and a great game and the Leganés needed it as May water. Despite several local attempts on the legs of Peque and Álvaro, the ‘Lega’ went to the intermediate ahead thanks to a goal from Guido Carrillo. In the second there was no color: in order not to complicate the duel, the ‘Basque’ introduced in the field to Martin Braithwaite, author of a double. With everything sentenced, Marc Navarro returned to the field after several months of injury and Guido Carrillo celebrated his second target to take off the bag of the pothole he had been dragging for a while. The Leganés will be in sixteenths and, above all, he already smiles collecting balls from the rival goal.Ebro 1 – Ponferradina 0The new format of the Copa del Rey was born to host this type of matches. The home team started with ball dominance, but the hierarchy always has the first word. Isi, with a left-footed shot, was close to overtaking the Ponfe. His ball hit the stick and Fran balanced the balance of chances after trimming the goalkeeper and running out of angle. Monforte stopped Isi, Álvaro González had another for his private collection and De Mesa whipped from 25 meters, which caused part of the fans to get up from their seat. After 45 frantic minutes, round trip and options for both, fear of the abyss reigned on the lawn of Pedro Sancho and there was hardly any danger in the second half. Nor in the first half of the extension. We had to wait until beyond 110 ‘to vibrate and feel the magic of Copera. Near was to mark the ball stopped Ponferradina, which was a message for the Ebro: A Second can score at any time and you have to bet on the win before the fateful batch. De Mesa understood the meaning and unleashed the madness in his fief at six in the end. The first surprise of the second round and the first ticket for sixteenths for a humble.Yeclano 1 – Elche 2Elche had also worked on the board the chaos that modest clubs subjected to LaLiga SmartBank in the first round of Copa del Rey. Therefore, they started firmly and Josan was close to feeding his team with a shot over the crossbar. Mourad, with a shot on the second post after sending Iván Sánchez, did not extend the inevitable and put the first in the locker of his team. The sentence could arrive in Pere Milla’s boots, but an opponent took his shot under the line. In another circumstance, the Yeclano could have collapsed, but he drew strength from his illusion and turned the match into a pretty one from you to you. Mario, a dagger for his band, put a great ball and Iñigo Alayeto celebrated the tie. 18 minutes the joy lasted. Pere Milla scored the second and practically dismissed the game. Because then there was only Elche and even Josan forgave two sung goals. He suffered until the last minute, but the ilicitanos want to advance in the KO tournament. They did it in The Constitution.Rayo Majadahonda 1 (2) – Tenerife 1 (4)The penalty shootout was cruel in a match in which Rayo Majadahonda was brave and daring, but collided with the reality of the nerves from the fateful point. First of all, Borja Díaz connected a volley that went by little and Moyita fired and the ball touched the stick of the Tenerife goal. They were the first measures, before Carlos Ruiz impose its particular punishment. The visiting soccer player took advantage of a loose ball after center José Orange tree to open the bookmark. The locals reacted on the feet of Borja Díaz, again, and of Mvongo. The statistics were devastating to the break: 8-0 in shots outside, more shots on goal … Rubén Mesa, in the center of Mvondo, he did justice 12 minutes after the resumption. There may not even be an extension, although David Martín was not right in his shot. The extra time did not leave much news, beyond a penalty failed by Suso. The eleven meters did not betray the big team after 120 minutes of stopwatch. Tenerife scored the first four, the Majadahonda could only convert two. A fateful ending that avoids a new surprise. The Hill lamented.Ibiza 1 (5) – Albacete 1 (3)All Ibiza goes from ‘Cups’. The Ibiza team made a demonstration of power, despite being in the lower category and deserved to overthrow Albacete even before the penalty shootout that qualified him for the round of 16. He started brave, with possession and two arrivals in the initial five minutes. Javi Lara and Rubén were the protagonists, with a rhythm of constant shipments from the band and several deviated head shots. The only negative nuance, the Morillas lesion, did not divert the template from its objective. This is football. Ramis had shot only once before and Álvaro Giménez He turned the first goal of the game almost out of nowhere. He did not ruin the effort of Ibiza. In the resumption, Pep Caballé scored a goal and Lara finished licking the goal stick of Brazao. The prize came in 65 ‘with both Miguel Nuñez. He continued erre that the Ibizan set was wrong, although Germán, goalkeeper, also contributed to the equality not being broken. On penalties, Olabe failed and Diego scored the final goal. A target to break from jubilation, to put the name of the island at the top and for one more reason to enjoy the popular night of Ibiza. They have earned it.
Benfica, according to O Jogo, He is interested in obtaining the transfer of Mariano until the end of the season in this winter market. The departure of another Real Madrid squad, Raúl de Tomás, has led the Portuguese to need to strengthen their front and they have returned to look at another player with few minutes of white to cover that place. For Benfica to have options for the operation to come to fruition, he must convince Real Madrid … and the player. As far as the white club is concerned, the condition is that Mariano’s new team takes over the high profile of the player (more than four million net per season). With half a season elapsed, the Lisbon team would only have to assume half of that amount. As for the player, it will not be easy to convince him. Mariano is far from desperate for his current situation. He is already 26 years old and signed a long-term contract with Real Madrid (until 2023) with a very good record. In no case would you value going to a club that does not match what you currently perceive in Madrid. In addition, he is happy in the city, he is in the club where he always wanted to play and has a very good relationship with his costumes. Therefore, although he barely has minutes (only 44 ‘this season), Benfica will have to put on the table some very attractive economic and sports conditions if he wants to convince him … read more

Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana, Pierre Giroux, said there is need for some studies to be carried out to make a determination of Guyana’s actual crime rate.The Ambassador was responding to questions posed by Guyana Times during an exclusive interview at his office on Tuesday.Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana Pierre GirouxWhile monthly statistics from the Guyana Police Force (GPF) suggest decreases in criminal activities, concerns continue to mount over what seems to be growing incidences of crime in various categories.Asked to comment on the situation, the High Commissioner said he does not know the country that well to understand the dynamics, but suggested that studies should be done to understand the phenomenon involved.According to the Ambassador, the gathering of crime statistics is rather complicated.“Let’s assume there is a society where 100 crimes are committed and people do not report the crime. So they report 30 of the 100. You have the impression that crime is under control, but its more, it’s actually 100. Now let’s assume that we now have a situation where Government improves the justice system for crime. It now goes from 100 to 90, so there has been an improvement, but then this gives confidence to people and they start reporting more.”He continued, “So suddenly your crime reporting increases. It goes from 30 to 50, but actually your total crime was reduced by 10.”The High Commissioner said what is not known is what phenomenon is being observed.“Is the actual crime rate reducing, or is it because people are reporting more crime? So what we need is much more studies to have an assessment… To answer your question, I don’t know. Is the crime really increasing or is it reducing because people are reporting or is it increasing because people are reporting more than they do.”He said he hopes that it’s the latter, that the crime rate is really being reduced in total absolute numbers. He said, however, that the relative numbers might increase because people are reporting more, which would seem to indicate that the people have more confidence.“It is something that I don’t know the country to understand the dynamics of when people are the object of a crime, what do they do. Do they go to the Police and report it, or they don’t report?” he said.Earlier this month, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) reported a 21 per cent reduction in serious crime when compared to the same period last year.This announcement came in for much criticism as many debunk this revelation as far from the truth. One such criticism came from Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo who questioned the statistics.“On one hand you are hearing that there is no increase in crime, then on the other the sycophant contradicts them and says it is happening,” Jagdeo noted.According to the Police Force, in its monthly statistics for September, there was a nine per cent decline in reports of murder cases with 105 cases in 2016, relative to the same period last year which had 115 cases listed.With regards to robberies, it was disclosed that gun-related robberies saw a five per cent decrease with 563 cases this year compared to 592 cases last year; while there was a 17 per cent decline in robberies with other instruments, which recorded 235 cases this year against 284 last year.Additionally, robberies with no instruments saw a 15 per cent reduction with 33 cases in 2016 compared to 39 in 2015; while robberies with violence recorded a 25 per cent decrease with 76 cases in this year, against 102 last year, and robberies with aggravation reduced by four per cent, recording 52 cases this year and 54 in 2015.Moreover, there was a 19 per cent decline in rape cases during the comparative period between this year, which recorded 204 cases, and last year when 251 cases were listed.Furthermore, the Police Force reported that some 67 illegal firearms were seized during this period; that is, 29 pistols, 21 revolvers and 17 shotguns. Last year, a total of 89 firearms were seized by the Police. It was reported too that the Force has maintained consistency in clearing up serious crime cases from January to September. During this time, there were 2497 cases reported, of which 535 were cleared up, thus reflecting 21 per cent. According to the Force, the consistent and continuous reduction in serious crimes is an indication that the strategies are working well, have yielded and will continue to yield positive results, thereby assuring all citizens that their collaborative effort in partnering with law enforcement is vital. In fact, when questioned at a press conference recently about the public perception that crime might be on the increase and not declining as being touted by the Force, acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine had explained that the situation is not as extreme as being perceived. read more
The board voted unanimously at Tuesday’s meeting to name the schools after the former school administrators. The district had sought the public’s help in naming three future schools, and more than 450 names were submitted, including Batman, Oprah Winfrey and Harold, an old name for Palmdale. A committee had whittled down the list to 20 for the board to consider, not including Millen’s and Strasburg’s names. Millen died in 2004 at age 59 after battling amyotropic lateral sclerosis. He joined the Palmdale district in 1974 and was principal at Cimarron, Tumbleweed, Cactus, Yucca and Mesa schools. In 2002, he was named Association of California School Administrators’ Elementary Principal of the Year for a region that encompasses 54 districts in the Antelope, Santa Clarita and San Gabriel valleys, Glendale, Burbank and parts of eastern Los Angeles County. Strasburg, longtime Tumbleweed School principal and a Palmdale historian, died in 1999 after battling a rare form of brain cancer. He was 55. Strasburg, who came to Palmdale at age 4, had been a Palmdale teacher and school administrator for 27 years, and was principal at Tumbleweed from 1980 until he went on leave in 1998 due to his illness. Strasburg served as Palmdale’s historian and donated his collection of old newspapers, more than 200 maps, 250 to 300 books and more than 150 photographs to the city library in 1997. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Trustees decided to name the campuses after David Millen and Fred Strasburg. “Both had been longtime educators in the district, at least 25 years in each case,” board member Sheldon Epstein said. “Both, unfortunately, had terminal illnesses. Dave’s was Lou Gehrig’s disease; Fred’s was a brain tumor. Both worked until the very end, as long as they could. “They impacted just literally hundreds of lives as they came through their schools. I think we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the accomplishments they did.” read more

The choices that many pretend exist are false. You don’t have to choose between cold calling and other method or insights and relationships.
