Waldo Rubio, end of Valladolid, in the orbit of Lightning

first_imgThe Lightning hurries the last days of market with several pending operations. They crave a few hours of heart attack. On the exit ramp are Abdoulaye, Lass and Piovaccari. However, the latter would only leave if the Franjirrojos sign a ‘nine’. So far, two of the options they liked most have vanished: Enric Gallego (Osasuna) and Sekou Gassama (Fuenlabrada). We will have to wait. Waldo Rubio, 24, grew up in Atlético Onubense and then went through Recreativo and Córdoba, set with which he debuted in Second (on January 14, 2018, in the defeat against Cádiz). From there he went to Valladolid (2018-19), he appeared in the branch and soon made the jump to the first team. Thus came his premiere in Primera, in a Leganés-Valladolid (1-0). That season he played just 491 minutes in the League and this one, 425. Hence, look for more filming and prominence. However, the forward is not the only demarcation to prop up. The injuries of Comesaña and Pozo have changed the initial plans and will force to reinforce the center of the field. For the core they like Keidi Bare (Málaga) and Milla (Tenerife). On the other hand, Lightning wants to tie to another end. De Frutos and Isi have already arrived, but Embarba’s march will lead to a new signing and there is a player that likes: Waldo Rubio. Of course, the Franjirrojos are not the only ones who keep track of La Paz, Ponferradina and Sporting also love him.last_img read more

Give cat for hare and other expressions with historical explanation

first_imgThe phrases made, popularly known sayings that express a truth based on common sense or experience, are often used to give advice or qualify a situation. However, and although we use them regularly, we do not know the origin of these sayings. In this article we explain the most commonly used phrases:Be two candlesWe can use this phrase made in several ways, but in any of them it refers to the lack of something. It is believed that it can come from the timbas of cards in which the bank had a candle on each side of the table to be able to count the money. Therefore, “leaving it with two candles” would mean being bankrupt and having nothing. Throw the house out the windowIt is said that someone “throws the house out of the window” when succumbing to large expenses, higher than what they used to. The expression stems from the custom that existed in the nineteenth century to literally throw furniture out of the window when someone touched the National Lottery in Spain. Go punchingWhen dismissing someone with some disregard or sentencing a discussion that we do not fully agree with, we use “go to hell.” A phrase made dating back to ancient times, where the “freaks” were the embroideries of the nearest part of the sleeve. These ornaments were made by hand with thread; a very delicate work that implies a lot of patience and money. Like Pedro for his houseWhen we talk about “walking like Pedro through his house” we mean a person who moves comfortably and not always well received in a place that is not his own. Its origin could go back to the old forgotten sayings that say: “Something goes from Peter to Peter” or “Well Peter is in Rome, even if he doesn’t eat”. All of them to indicate that “Pedro” is the name given to any individual to personalize phrases or popular sayings. Peter, in his figurative sense, seems to represent the master of a house, as if it were the relation of the Christian words according to which Saint Peter was the cornerstone or the first stone of the house of God.Take for a rideLiterature is full of allusions, many of them ironic, about the value of the food offered at the inns and inns. It was so much the discredit of this type of resting places that a kind of “exorcism” became habitual among diners that recited: “If you are a kid, keep fried; if you are a cat, jump to the plate”. And although this never served to demonstrate the true fame of the inn, it gave rise to the expression “give cat for a hare” that we know today.The third time luckyWhat is meant by this proverbial phrase is that the desired end is reached on the third attempt. But its origin is not so clear: some experts find in the criminal law of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in which the death penalty was imposed on the third theft. Others point out that the expression has been taken from “the melee fight” that goes to three falls.

Sidnei changes his role at Betis for this season finale

first_imgLaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 23, 2020 Betis did not touch their defense in the past summer market and Sidnei soon became one of Rubi’s most used tricks in the middle of his back. The bet was short-lived: both Mandi’s return and injuries left the Brazilian behind, who now has only nine games and intends to turn his situation around in the remainder of the league championship. His good performance against Real Madrid invites a changing scenario: he has eleven duels to earn a continuity ticket in Heliópolis despite the fact that his contract expires in 2022.Betis already managed the option of a departure of the Brazilian player in winter, But neither the player was clear on that trick or clubs came with the necessary conditions for him to say goodbye. Rubi then ran into a defensive overbooking after pivot Guido Rodríguez arrived and settled on his plans Edgar. With only two places behind and four central to play there, Sidnei waited for his opportunity and added two starts in the last two appointments of his team to expose his conditions, the same ones that made him an important piece last season under Quique Setién.

The Verdiblanco club has decided to make variations in its defensive zone before the number of pieces present and the bad numbers that the team reflects again at the collective level behind. Rubi’s team is the third team to score the most goals in the current League and this reflects the excess risks taken by a style of play that already experienced a similar situation at Espanyol last season despite the European ticket (50 goals conceded) . Sidnei wants to extend his time as a verdiblanco and hopes that the resumption of the League will allow him to present his best arguments.last_img read more

New track boost for Calabar High

first_img “Some of that money will go back into the programme; some of it will go elsewhere. It’s a complex we are developing, so in the middle, there is a football field and we are looking at basketball because we want to ensure that we are putting up a sporting complex that will benefit the young men,” the principal said. Lights are also to be installed at the facility. At the launch attended by Sports Minister Natalie Neita Headley, Jamaica Administrative Athletics Association General Secretary Garth Gayle and Calabar alumnus attorney Michael Eaton, it was announced that the track will be handed over during a dedication ceremony set for Friday, January 22. The inaugural meet will serve as an incentive for 400- and 800-metre runners striving to replicate the impact made by Messrs Arthur Wint and Herb McKenley, former Calabar High School athletes described by Minister Neita-Headley as “two great stalwarts of modern Jamaica on whose shoulders we now stand”. At the 1948 Olympic Games in London, Wint won Jamaica’s first ever Olympic gold medal in the 400m; McKenley the silver. In Helsinki, Finland in 1952 both men were members of Jamaica’s mile relay team, along with George Rhoden and Les Laing, which broke the world record in winning gold. As such, the overall fastest times in the boys and girls 400 metres will be given the Arthur Wint Trophies donated by the Wint family while the top performers in the men’s and women’s Olympic Development 400m and 800m will be awarded cash prizes donated by members of the McKenley family and the Calabar Old Boys’ Association New York Chapter.

Principal of Calabar, Albert Corcho, revealed yesterday that the school stands to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in transportation costs alone. “We are benefiting already because we usually go to the stadium to train. Once the track is officially handed over we cut out all of that,” he said, following the launch of the track meet at the headquarters of the Jamaica Baptist Union on Washington Boulevard yesterday. “We had to rent buses every day to take the young men to the stadium and back,” he added. He estimated that it costs the school about $15,000 a day for transportation, money that can now be diverted to other areas of the school’s sports development.last_img read more
