Athletic strip strap

first_imgBut the glory for the Argentine would come in the 86th minute, when he received from Morata and hand in hand with much suspense surpassed Neto, that after touching the ball did not manage to clear it out and sneaked into the goal despite Sergi Roberto’s attempt to avoid the goal. A goal that is worth the pass to the Super Cup final and that reward for a persevering Correa and a Simeone who has always trusted him. It has gained ownershipCholo sees the 24-year-old from the right, behind João Félix and Morata and with a lot of freedom of movement. Correa recognizes that in band he suffers, he has to run a lot backwards, but his work is rewarded up. Right now it is untouchable. Ante Osasuna replaced Lemar in the 54th minute with a goalless draw and assisted Saul to close the 2-0 victory. Against Betis he would replace the Frenchman without goals (minute 57) and in the first ball he played he snatched it from Alex Moreno to Sit Joel and put Atlético ahead. In case it was not enough, he would assist Morata with a tense center from the right wing that finished off the tip with a heel. His last two great appearances in 2019 led him to eleven. Against the Levant responded with a great goal defining first a large center of Trippier and ended up being decisive in the triumph completing a game for the first time since November 2 and against Barcelona it was again the key piece of the attack with a goal and an assist, playing his second whole game and confirming his great state of form as the nerve and imbalance of the rojiblanco attack. A Correa who in August had a foot and a half outside the club and is now a capital player in Simeone’s plans. The future of Ángel Correa in summer passed through Milan. The player wanted to go out in search of a more leading role and the club thought to cover Rodrigo’s signing with his transfer, after reaching an agreement with Valencia by the striker. However, the Italian team never reached the pretensions of Atlético and the Argentine remained on the roster, with a penalty that prevented him from playing in the first two days and with the signing of João Félix plus the claims of evolution of Lemar and Vitolo closing their doors. Now, he is the most fit red and white player. In the last four games he accumulates three goals and three assists, becoming the most unbalanced player in the front of the mattress attack. Before Barcelona, ​​he began to create danger to the Blaugrana defense, pressing intelligently and moving from the right wing. But at 13 minutes he was about to have to leave the game. Correa followed an aerial ball with his eyes not realizing the exit of Neto, who hit the player with his knee while catching the ball leaving him very sore. In the fall, the Argentine could have damaged his knee and ankle. Vitolo and Koke warmed up in the band and the gestures of pain presaged that he would not continue. After continuing reluctant on the pitch, with virtually no participation or explosiveness, he did not seem able to jump into the field in the second half. Koke was preparing in the band at the break and it seemed that Correa would be the substitute. It was not like that, Cholo kept the faith in the Argentine and removed Herrera from the field of play. At 10 seconds from the beginning of the second half, Correa received from João Félix and perfectly attended a Koke who touched his first ball to score. last_img read more

When football takes you to the most polluted country in the world

first_imgJavi Sánchez, physical trainer of the Bashundara Kings Despite the climatic handicap, Óscar Bruzon and Javier Sánchez have discovered a “noble” country in which people “share everything even though they have nothing.” 44% of the population lives in extreme poverty. This is why Bangladesh has up to eight million child laborers. “Seeing them work on the construction site or picking up trash breaks your heart. With the little they earn, many support their family,” says Sánchez, who assures that knowing the reality of other countries has helped him grow personally. “There are many people whose life is an exercise in survival, but in Bangladesh there is also an incipient, young and university population that will be in charge of developing the country in the coming years, “adds Bruzon. Successes based on an exercise in integrity, since Bashundara Kings had to overcome the obstacles of a Federation related to Abahani Limited, the club that dominated local football until the landing of Bruzon in Dhaka. “They have not given us any ease in terms of calendar, breaks, trips or Cup draws. We have accumulated matches in the rainy season, but we have managed to overcome all obstacles with work and determination,” acknowledged the Galician in Migrantes del Balón last August. “The field of the penultimate match we played was a potato field. But not only that, is that it did not have the official measurements! Meters were both long and wide, but the Federation has more power than the club and we had to play“Javier Sánchez details about the last trick against ‘the kings’.’Born to win’. It is the motto of a club that has become a continuous tribute to its claims. When Asian football had to pause because of the coronavirus, Bashundara Kings was just three points behind the league lead. ‘Los reyes’, which last season established the record for consecutive wins in the Bangladesh Premier League (14) debuted in March in the AFC Cup, the Asian ‘Europa League’, where they thrashed (5-1) the Maldivian TC Sports Club. Now everything is different: “Normally, going to the supermarket you risk your life three or four times. If it is not for a car, it is for a motorcycle. If not, for a ‘rickshaw’ -bicytaxi typical in Asia-. Now there is nobody. People are afraid of the virus“Javier Sánchez reveals from his confinement in Dhaka. Win regardless of who weighsBashundara Kings was founded in 2013 and belongs to Bashundara Group, one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Bangladesh. The club, whose main objective is “to involve young people in national sport to eradicate social ills”, rose to the highest category in 2018 and, already with Óscar Bruzon on the bench, he was proclaimed league champion in the year of his elite debut. “They offered us a new project, including modern training facilities, a stadium whose works are finished before the end of the year and a loyal fans and young people who are already seeing us as the country’s hope to compete in the international context,” he details. the Vigo coach, who it also conquered the Independence Cup in 2019 and the Federation Cup in January of this year.Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is classified as “unhealthy”.Javi Sánchezcenter_img “The field did not have the official measurements. There were meters both long and wide, but the Federation has more power than the club and we had to play” Bangladesh is the most polluted country in the world. Its water contains chromium, a carcinogen, and the air is classified as “unhealthy”. Acoustic pollution is also a problem: “If you get into a traffic jam you can have a bad time. The noise is constant. You go crazy,” says Andalusian Javier Sánchez from Dhaka. “The water is not worse than what you find in other Asian countries, but I don’t plan to drink it either. It causes heartburn or ulcers … There are many people who take antacid. I have had gastroenteritis in two years here, but little else“adds the physical trainer of Bashundara Kings, reigning champion of the Bangladeshi Premier League.Javier Sánchez, from Huelva by birth and canary by adoption, arrived in Bangladesh from the Galician coach Óscar Bruzon in the summer of 2018. “We are lucky to live on the outskirts of the city. It is a green area, more virgin, but Poor air quality is also noted. Until you adjust, you feel like your lungs are not filling and you have trouble breathing. The air is not pure, but you get used to it “, details the Andalusian, who also highlights the poor visibility:” When we travel by plane, dust clouds are appreciated. You don’t see much further. “Prolonged exposure to air as unhealthy as Dhaka can lead to respiratory and skin conditions. Bashundara has unexpectedly found a sporting benefit:” The air is denser and teams from outside are it’s hard to breathe. “last_img read more

Males on “Evolutionary Overdrive”

first_imgA press release from University of Florida claims males evolve faster than females, and suggests a reason.  It’s because males are simpler.  Some quotes: The observation that males evolve more quickly than females has been around since 19th century biologist Charles Darwin noted the majesty of a peacock’s tail feather in comparison with the plainness of the peahen’s.    No matter the species, males apparently ramp up flashier features and more melodious warbles in an eternal competition to win the best mates, a concept known as sexual selection.    Why males are in evolutionary overdrive even though they have essentially the same genes as females has been a mystery, but an explanation by University of Florida Genetics Institute researchers … may shed light on the subject.    “It’s because males are simpler,” said Marta Wayne….    It turns out that the extra X in females may make answering the call of selection more complicated….    …“males have only one X inherited only from their mother.  This is a simple mechanism that could be working in cooperation with sexual selection to help males evolve more quickly.”    Researchers believe this relatively uncomplicated genetic pathway helps males respond to the pressures of sexual selection, ultimately enabling them to win females and produce greater numbers of offspring.The article did not consider the possibility that females, having a double dose of genes on the X chromosome, might be evolving faster.  The researchers seemed to assume that flashier traits are a metric of evolutionary speed.  There would be no reason to exclude the possibility that plainness or camouflage might actually require more selection.For assuming male traits are merely products of selection, for visualizing evolution as a car engine and a recruiter, for personifying evolution as an invisible agent helping males to evolve, for considering genetic mechanisms of reproduction and inheritance as simple things, and for implying that fitness is a function of number of offspring (a tautology), this article wins Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week.    Once again, winning the sex game is the only virtue in evolution.  Students raised on a steady diet of Darwin can kiss good-bye to purpose, values, morals, reason, standards, service to others, and truth.  If the researchers behind this story were consistent, they would quit the science lab and just go try to distribute their genes as far and wide as possible.  But if you asked them why they were doing this, they would not be able to give any reason for it – not even a Darwinian one.  Do a very un-Darwinian thing: think about it.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
