Vinicius inspires Madrid to much-needed win over Leganes

first_img0Shares0000Star of the show: Real Madrid’s Brazilian forward Vinicius Junior © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSGIRONA, Spain, Jan 10 – Vinicius Junior starred and Real Madrid steadied the ship as a 3-0 win over Leganes on Wednesday put them on the brink of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.Vinicius, the 18-year-old Brazilian signed by Madrid last summer, capped an electric display at the Santiago Bernabeu with a stunning volley, his third goal for the club and the team’s third of the night. By then, Sergio Ramos had converted a first-half penalty and Lucas Vazquez doubled the advantage to set Madrid on their way to a much-needed first victory of 2019.It will take a seismic comeback for Leganes to overturn the deficit in next week’s second leg but more important to coach Santiago Solari was the rhythm regained, following two La Liga games without a victory.The home crowd, who had whistled and waved white handkerchiefs on Sunday after the loss to Real Sociedad, were also treated to the sight of Brahim Diaz making his debut, the 19-year-old coming off the bench following his move from Manchester City.Vinicius was the shining light, however. The striker was alive to every ball in the final third and his finish, a sweet shot with his body off balance, was a triumph for technical talent.“He is taking big steps,” Solari said afterwards. “He has always had the ability but to develop it and show it in the Bernabeu, alongside so many great players, speaks of his confidence and his courage.”Vinicius had been at the centre of things last weekend too after being denied a controversial penalty during the second half of Real Sociedad’s shock win.It was Madrid, however, who were the beneficiaries of a marginal decision this time as Alvaro Odriozola tumbled out of a tussle with Gerard Gumbau and Ramos made no mistake.Leganes had started brighter and could have been ahead had Martin Braithwaite been more precise with his finishing or quicker to a Gumbau pass across goal.Instead, Madrid doubled their lead in the second half when Karim Benzema latched onto an underhit backpass from Bustinza and teed up Vinicius. He slid in Vazquez to finish.Vinicius then got the goal his performance deserved as Odriozola floated a cross to the back post. Back-pedalling, the teenager adjusted his feet before swivelling into an acrobatic shot, the ball flying into left-hand corner.Earlier, Antoine Griezmann helped Atletico Madrid edge towards the last eight as they took a valuable away goal from a 1-1 draw with Girona.Griezmann’s early shot found its way in off both the crossbar and then goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz but Girona hit back before half-time through Anthony Lozano.Neither side could find a winner at Montilivi but Atletico will be the happier, with the second leg at home still to come next week.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgTaoiseach Enda Kenny may have some stormy weather ahead but he took time to lead tributes to weather-forecasting postman Michael Gallagher who has retired from An Post after 48 years service.Postman Michael GallagherMickey Gallagher, postman and weather forecaster from Glenfin, finally hung up his postbag recently.The 66-year-old, from Glenfin, said he enjoyed every single day delivering letters to the people of the Bluestack Mountains. Michael uses signs of nature picked up from older folk to predict the weather.More than 200 people packed into a bar in Brockagh last weekend to thank Michael for all his service and to wish him well.In a letter, hand-delivered for the occasion, the Taoiseach recalled: “As my mother was a McGinley from Donegal I was reared on stories such as waiting for the postman to arrive with news from relatives not just in Ireland but spread across the world.Loyal“Over your 48 years of loyal service to the Irish postal service you ensured that the people of Donegal received those precious letters … I am sure they did not thank you for the many bills you delivered but that’s all part of the service. “You also distinguish yourself in predicting the weather patterns based on your study of nature and I hope you continue to do so,” Mr Kenny wrote.Michael also got letters from FAI chief John Delaney and Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams.Father-of-three Michael says he will still try to predict the weather and plans to write his memoirs. He thinks – having studied berries in hedges – it will be a calm autumn ahead with plenty of dry weather.MICKEY THE POST PREDICTS A BRIGHT FORECAST FOR HIS OWN RETIREMENT! was last modified: September 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMichael Gallagherpostmanlast_img read more


first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: We are half way through January.According to statistics, the majority of new year’s resolutions will be starting to fade into distant memory, as the resolution makers decide that this wasn’t actually their year.Are you one of them? Do you talk yourself out of going to training?Do you convince yourself that the reasons you have are actually THAT important and not just another excuse?Did you forget your gym bag again, and now you can’t train?Do you just admit that you don’t feel like going to the gym tonight and that Netflix is a more appealing substitute?If any of these scenarios sounds like you, you are not alone.Statistics tell us that by the end of January, 92% of people will have given up on their resolutions, with only 8% of people actually achieving them in any given year. The top 10 resolutions that most people make are to;1. Lose weight2. Get organised3. Save more money4. Enjoy life5. Staying fit and healthy6. Learn something new7. Quit smoking8. Help others9. Find love10. Spend more time with their familySo why is it that we can’t seem to stay on track with our goals?Most of the time it is because we have more than one.How many of the list above do you recognise as yours?If you have more than one, chances are that you won’t achieve any of them.If your goal is to finally lose weight this year, make that your only goal.You have to give it all of your attention.If you have ever tried to set weight loss goals, you will know how difficult it is.Having a conflicting goal that you are trying to achieve at the same time will take away your focus from what you really want; weight loss. If you really want to lose weight this year, and by really, I mean if you REALLY want to finally lose those unwanted pounds, I am going to give you some tips that will help you to skip the excuses and stay focused with your good intentions.1. Always have your gym bag with you.Now, I am not saying that you have to walk around with a backpack on, like you are going hiking, but having your gym bag in your car or at your office will mean that you have no excuse when it is time to go training.Just remember to take it home in-between days and wash your training gear! ☺2. Have your training partner on speed dial Having a training partner makes starting training much easier.It is always daunting starting in a new gym or in a new fitness class.The best thing about having a training partner is motivation, you are less likely to skip a session if you have to be accountable to someone.3. Go to a fitness classThere are 2 things that are sure to make people give up on training.Lack of structure and lack of motivation.If you have never been to a gym before, starting out with no idea of what you are doing and with no structured program to help you train properly, is asking for failure.A fitness class is a great way to train with a group of likeminded people.There should be a structured session each time you are there and you will get a bit of progression on a week to week basis.You have the added benefit of getting to know the instructor and having them keep you motivated and accountable for your goals.4. Try different exercisesTrying a few different types of exercise when starting out is a simple way to keep you interested.You will get to try new things and find something that you actually enjoy and might stick to long term.5. Have an open mind.If there is one thing that you should know when starting out with exercise, it is this;You won’t always enjoy your exercise sessions!This is sometimes the biggest downfall of new gym goers.You will be sore sometimes.There will be exercises you won’t be particularly good at.You may not be as fit as others in the class or gym.You may feel confused at times.This is to be expected. We were all there at one stage or another. Just know that the more you go, the easier these things get and the more your body changes, the more motivating it will be to keep going.If you stop the first time it gets difficult, or the first time you are sore, it will always be difficult and you will always be sore, because every time you try to start back, it will be like your first time all over again.Just keep going and it WILL get easier ☺This is just a small list of things that can keep you on track with your exercise, if you need any more help, my fitness classes are all done in a fun and motivating environment.If I can help you, please don’t hesitate to contact me through the link below.#TrainSmart RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: 5 TIPS TO MAKE THIS YEAR ‘YOUR YEAR’ was last modified: January 18th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:5 tips for trainingemmet rushefitness columnlast_img read more

Ignorance a miss in down-ballot races

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WITH a poll showing a remarkable number of undecided voters heading into the June 6 primary, California may see a wave of bad decisions as last-minute deciders choose candidates without a clue who they are really voting for. The poll by the Public Policy Institute of California shows a stunning 33 percent of Democratic voters haven’t decided between state Controller Steve Westly and state Treasurer Phil Angelides, who are in a statistical dead heat. Westly blew an April lead by spending too much time trashing Angelides, leaving lots of undecided women who dislike negativity. PPIC survey director Mark Baldassare says indecision in the governor’s primary is not because voters are “uninformed,” but because they are filled with angst. Fair enough, but only in the gubernatorial primary. Voters choosing finalists for attorney general, state controller, treasurer, insurance commissioner and lieutenant governor are not the least bit informed. They’re going to pick somebody because they’ve heard their name. This year, that could bode particularly ill for California. To wit: For the political springboard of lieutenant governor, the better-known candidate is Insurance Commission John Garamendi, with excellent state Sen. Jackie Speier working hard to broaden her ID outside the Bay Area. Perpetual candidate Garamendi is a self-promoter and bumbler. In 2003, while running for governor during the recall, Garamendi launched a carefully timed attack on home insurance companies, conducted “raids” on them and got great press for an “emergency regulation” to stop them from using certain databases to decide which homes to insure. Soon after Garamendi abandoned the governor’s race, his trumped-up claims were tossed out by a Superior Court judge who said Garamendi didn’t even have authority to launch his crass “emergency regulation.” Now Garamendi has crafted another shameless media event, claiming that car insurers tried to “bribe” him to stop proposed regulations that would reduce the use of ZIP codes in setting auto premiums. Garamendi is dissembling. In truth, he was approached by Democratic consultant Darry Sragow whose integrity is unquestioned, unlike Garamendi’s to inform Garamendi that insurers planned to spend $2 million fighting the ZIP-code rule. Had insurers failed to warn Garamendi, he would have called it a stealth attack. More important, Garamendi’s self-serving proposal would raise auto premiums statewide but lower rates in a handful of urban counties jammed with Garamendi voters. Sweet. Can Speier, with her gutsy voice against special interests, overcome Garamendi’s name ID? If she can, at least we’d see a real November race between thinking people Speier and the certain Republican nominee, Sen. Tom McClintock of Thousand Oaks. A similar problem is unfolding in the primary for state controller, the official who gives fiscal advice to local governments and helps oversee the nation’s largest public pension fund. If voters blindly choose by name ID, the Democratic nod goes to the obnoxious showboat trial lawyer, Sen. Joe Dunn of Orange County. With an ego that arrives in any room before he does, Dunn takes credit for “cracking” Enron a legislative pile-on that in fact involved dozens of legislators, in which Dunn was lucky enough to hold a choice post. He’s a gridlocker, incapable of working with Republicans, but he faces the lesser-known Democrat John Chiang. Chiang is a tax law expert, whose fiscal abilities unlike Dunn’s have shined in his posts on the Franchise Tax Board and state Board of Equalization. On the Republican side, while former conservative Assemblyman Tony Strickland is capable of working with both parties, his rival, Republican state Sen. Abel Maldonado, would represent more than the conservative wing of the GOP. Maldonado is one of fewer than 10 “moderate” politicians in California’s extremist 120-person Legislature. By now, the GOP should have turned Maldonado into its shooting star, its rising Latino. Instead, because Strickland says all the right things to woo conservatives, the GOP has failed to make Maldonado a household name. That’s a national embarrassment for a party short on diversity. But best of luck to the impressive Maldonado in a race that isn’t over. One other race has a similar tale to tell: Sen. Deborah Bowen of Marina del Rey is the reasonable and smart Democrat for secretary of state. But Sen. Deborah Ortiz of Sacramento, a flamethrower lacking common sense, had an edge with better name ID in early polls. Bowen got her party’s backing a rare good decision by the Democrats. If Bowen wins, voters will have a solid choice between her and the able incumbent, moderate Republican Bruce McPherson. The bottom line is that in these crucial “down ballot” races, indecisive voters have a rotten habit of going with a name they heard someplace. If they don’t pay better attention, California could be harmed for years to come. Jill Stewart is a print, radio and television commentator on California politics.
