Spain’s ‘doping doctor’ in court

first_img Share 13 Views   no discussions Tweet Share Sharing is caring!center_img HealthInternationalLifestylePrint Spain’s ‘doping doctor’ in court by: – January 28, 2013 Share Dr Eufemiano Fuentes is on trial with his sister and three former cycling coachesA Spanish doctor is going on trial accused of running one of the world’s largest sports doping rings.Dr Eufemiano Fuentes’s trial in Madrid comes nearly seven years after police raided his offices and seized some 200 bags of blood which were linked to a number of top cyclists.Dozens of cyclists have been called to testify as witnesses in the trial.Dr Fuentes, his sister and three former cycling coaches are charged with breaking public health laws.They could not be charged with doping-related crimes because Spain had no anti-doping law at the time of their arrest.Prosecutors must prove that the defendants’ actions put the lives of the athletes at risk – something the defence is expected to deny.The case comes days after former seven times Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong finally admitted to using banned drugs and blood doping during his cycling career.Code-namesSpanish police carried out a series of raids on offices, laboratories and flats in Madrid, Zaragoza and El Escorial in May 2006 as part of an investigation known as Operation Puerto.They found around 200 bags of blood or frozen plasma with labels that were believed to be code-names for Dr Fuentes’s clients – athletes who were allegedly benefiting from a highly-sophisticated doping programme.Dozens of cyclists were allegedly implicated in the scandal, including former Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, who is expected to give evidence in the trial.The World Anti-Doping Agency has said that it was told, at the time of the raids, that the bags of blood also related to athletes from several sports, including football and tennis.But the trial will focus only on cyclists who, according to the chief prosecutor in the case, are the only athletes that could be identified from the bags of blood seized.The trial is expected to last until mid-March.If found guilty, the defendants could face up to two years in prison and a two-year professional ban.BBC Newslast_img read more

Minister of Carib Affairs calls for more support for Kalinago Week activities

first_imgHon. Ashton Graneau. Image via: GIS NewsMinister of Carib Affairs, Honourable Ashton Graneau is expressing disappointment with the level of support that the Kalinago people are receiving during their annual Carib Week activities.The week of activities organized by the Kalinago Council is in its 30th year of commemoration; an observance which dates back to the Kalinago history on September 19th, 1913.Mr Graneau told a press conference last week that although the event is publicized each year the support from the Dominican public is of great concern to the Council.“From what we have seen and I have been told is that we hardly get the support from the people outside of the Kalinago Territory. This is a major concern for us because the activities are not just for the Kalinago people. We have the health fair which gives the public information on the history of Kalinago herbs, its various uses and so on. We also have the Miss Kalinago and Miss Natari pageants where the creativity of our Kalinago craftsmen, writers and drama pieces come into play. So it is not an event that only Kalinagos should come to. The entire Dominican population is invited to celebrate Carib Week with us,” said Graneau.Activities for Carib Week this year included a Health Fair, a history night, a joint pageant and talks at various primary schools in the Kalinago community.The Minister of Carib Affairs is of the view that the Kalinago community has a lot to celebrate during that period, especially improvements in infrastructural development and human resource.Considering where we were and where we are now, there is a big difference. We are seeing major improvements in a lot of areas like infrastructural development, higher levels of education, more persons either employed around the island or self-employed. The Kalinago Territory is also one of the main tourism attraction areas in the country with the Kalinago Barana Aute welcoming hundreds of visitors every month, so there is a lot to celebrate not just in September but year round.” Graneau said.The Minister also dismissed critics who claim that focus should not be placed on the history of the Kalinago people every year.The Council is arguing that in order to chart the way forward for the Kalinago people, focus must be placed on the history of the communities that make up the Kalinago territory.“Personally what I believe is that we cannot dwell too much on the history but in order to move forward we must look at our past, where we are now and then our future. Some people tend to think that we talk about our history which talks about putting blame on certain people. We are not blaming anyone, we are just looking back at the past as a pillar to help us to the next level. It will give us an opportunity to assess ourselves to see if we are making any progress” Graneau stressed. The Kalinago Council will host the Miss Kalinago and Miss Natari joint pageant on Saturday, September 24th, 2011 at the Kalinago Village in Bataca.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!

Saha: Why Ronaldo was already a genius at 18

first_imgLouis Saha has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo’s dedication and mentality are the driving forces behind his incredibly successful career. Loading… Our former striker was team-mates with the current Juventus star between 2004 and 2008 and, in that time, he saw Cristiano develop from a promising teenager into one of football’s greatest-ever players. Ronaldo has achieved some outstanding personal milestones at United, Real Madrid, Juventus and with Portugal, including winning the Ballon d’Or on five occasions, picking up five Champions League winners’ medals and six league titles, as well as guiding his national team to success at Euro 2016. Saha is not surprised his old colleague has accomplished so much in the game as, even at 18, his attitude was faultless. “He always improved but I would say that his ways never changed [as a person],” the Frenchman said on the latest MUTV Group Chat. “Throughout his career, you see the same dedication that he had when he was 18, maybe with less confidence as people were challenging him, and he had to prove that he was the best player. “But to have that type of confidence to train, to work hard and to be consistent, no matter what people say, that was just an amazing skill. It was better than having talent because the way he was able to analyse, at that age, and grow and maintain those qualities – for me, it was genius. “You ask anybody – working hard when you have that much talent, not everybody does this. You can get complacent or happy with your level and you think you have made it. But he wanted it way more. “To have the vision to see something way more, when you’re already at United, at his age, it’s really hard. He managed to do that and that’s why I respected him so much.” Cristiano has never been the shy and retiring type and Louis reflected that even during his first years at United, the Portuguese star was more than happy to voice his opinions. “Even though he was younger than me, I remember he said to me: ‘Louis you need to smile more when you play’. When the kids say that to you, when you’re older and have more experience, you say: ‘Hang on a minute’. But I realised it was so true,” Saha explained. read also:Saha: Martial’s anger and aggressiveness makes him unplayable “During his career, he could be cheeky in the way that he spoke to people, and people just could not understand and got frustrated because they were not in his league. He’s so above everybody that, when he speaks normally, it sounds strange for everybody. It’s amazing. “His power and speed… the skills were one thing that are important in a career, but analysing when to do it – the timing and the precision – nobody can do that.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 10 TV Friends Who Used To Be EnemiesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s Hysterical6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes6 Movies Where A Car Plays A Key RoleWhy Go Veg? 7 Reasons To Do This9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoolast_img read more

Fulham move on from Morrison

first_img Press Association “It’s been a job very well done from Brendan Rodgers to keep him at Liverpool and help him have the season he has had,” said Meulensteen. “How do you stop them? They’ve had an incredible season, the pace and the penetration, the variety and the unpredictability in the way they can all score goals. “So it has to be all hands on deck for us to make sure that we defend in a good, compact manner, that we keep communicating, don’t leave gaps for them to get through and play through. “But the defensive performance from Sunday was definitely a massive improvement, and we can build on that.” Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson questioned Liverpool stalwart Steven Gerrard’s status as a modern great in his recent autobiography. Meulensteen worked at Ferguson’s side for scores of United-Liverpool grudge matches, and rates Gerrard as among the best the Premier League has to offer. “In my opinion he is a top player, definitely,” said Meulensteen. “Brendan [Rodgers] is looking at the players available and where he will best slot in as well. “If Lucas would be fit, then probably Lucas would play a bit deeper and Gerrard a bit freer. “But he probably thinks Gerrard is the best to play the deeper role now, it suits him, he’s got the range of passing to do it, so he’s still a very important player for Liverpool.” Kostas Mitroglu’s knee injury continues to keep Fulham’s new recruit sidelined, while defender Fernando Amorebieta will also miss out, but should return to training this week. Hailing the impact of Everton capture Johnny Heitinga, Meulensteen said squad stalwarts Brede Hangeland and Scott Parker will fully understand being overlooked for the starting XI in Sunday’s Manchester United clash. “Johnny’s been brilliant,” said Meulensteen. “He’s an established Dutch international, has vast experience and best of all he’s a leader, he talks. “Both Scotty and Brede are top, top players, and every manager would want players like that in their squad. “That’s why they’ve been around for many, many years. “They are the first players to understand when a manager makes those sorts of changes, which they would not necessarily be happy about, but will accept and do everything they can if and when called upon.” Rodgers believes the evolution of Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson are prime examples of the strides being made at Anfield. Coutinho was signed just over a year ago from Inter Milan for £8.5million and immediately showcased his abilities as a playmaker with an eye for a defence-slitting pass. Where the little Brazilian came up short was going the other way where his defensive contribution was often found wanting. Coutinho’s arrival also coincided with a return to the team of Henderson, who – after rejecting the chance to join Wednesday’s opponents Fulham the previous summer – had been a fringe player in Rodgers’ first season. A year on and the pair have cemented their positions as first choices and the manager credits the players with stepping up their efforts. On Coutinho, Rodgers said: “He’s got wonderful technique but obviously coming into the British game and this league there are other components you need to play. “He’s five foot seven, he’s got brilliant technique, he’s tactically cute and clever, but physically he’s has everything to cope. “People always wonder about small players in this league, can they play and can they cope? “I think for players like him and Joe Allen, it’s about the talent and if you’ve got the strength, your brain, the power and the mentality, you can succeed. “If you talked to him I think he’d say one of the elements of his game he’s improved are his defensive qualities – and he needs that because it’s important for us and how we play.” Coutinho’s presence in Liverpool’s midfield, harrying and harassing Arsenal in Saturday’s 5-1 victory, showed how he was putting that improved physicality into practice. “He’s not going to be diving in jumping into challenges but he can intercept, he can block, he can get up to people and press the ball,” added Rodgers. “You see with the fourth goal how he intercepted. His positioning is good so he can block passes and intercept. “He’s got a wonderful feel for a pass that not many players have. “You either get midfield players who are holding midfield players or they’re runners – he’s one that can do both. “He can get on the ball, penetrate with his passing, and he gives us a wonderful cutting edge to go and put our talented players in.” Coutinho may well have taken note of Henderson’s all-action, high-energy approach in Rodgers’ up-tempo pressing game which has seen him flourish over the last year. “Jordan is taking that mantra on as well as anyone,” added the Reds boss, who believes the 23-year-old is deserving of a starting place in Roy Hodgson’s England team at this summer’s World Cup. “He has got everything physically. He has stature as a player and I have been mightily impressed with his tactical idea of the game and now he looks like he is ready to play for England for many years. “Jordan can break a line on his run, can press and run and tactically he is improving so much. “The way he is working, we would want to secure his services (on a new contract). He still has all his best years ahead of him and you can see his growth and development. “He will want to get better and I’m sure it is in the interests of the club to tie him down.” Rodgers believes had Hodgson come to Anfield last weekend instead of sending assistant Ray Lewington, he would have seen England’s first-choice midfield in action. “For me you had the three England players on the pitch on Saturday with Jordan, Stevie (Steve Gerrard) controlling and (Arsenal’s) Jack Wilshere,” he said. “You would have Stevie playmaking from behind and two attacking players who can run, get forward and get into the box and can press. “With Stevie’s experience controlling from behind it would be hard to pick a better three than that.” Fulham had a transfer bid for Morrison rejected in January, with the Hammers accusing the Cottagers of an illegal approach. Meulensteen insisted Morrison wanted to join Fulham when speaking after his side’s 3-0 FA Cup replay victory over Norwich on January 15, sparking West Ham’s grievance. Now Meulensteen can only watch on from the sidelines. “There’s not very much we can do at this time, and what other clubs do we can’t affect,” said Meulensteen. “The only thing I can affect is what we’re doing at Fulham.” Fulham host Liverpool in Barclays Premier League action on Wednesday night, the game going ahead unaffected after planned London Underground strikes were called off at the last minute. Buoyed by Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Manchester United, Meulensteen admitted subduing Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge could be the ultimate challenge. Meulensteen believes Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers deserves high praise for winning the fight to retain Suarez and reintegrating the Uruguay goal machine seamlessly after his ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. Fulham must admit defeat in their bid to sign West Ham forward Ravel Morrison, at least in the short-term, according to boss Rene Meulensteen. With the transfer window shut to Premier League clubs, but open for those in the Championship and below to make loan moves, QPR boss Harry Redknapp has claimed his side are aiming to tie up a deal for the former Manchester United man. And if Redknapp’s promotion candidates can secure a return to the top-flight, they would surely become favourites to get Morrison on a permanent basis if West Ham were to let him go, particularly given the relationship between the east London club and Fulham following events last month. last_img read more

Thousands march in Downtown to protest Trump win

first_imgThey held up signs saying “Dump Trump” and “Brown, Proud and Terrified,” and chanted slogans like “Immigrants are welcome here” and “Not my president.” Cars honked in show of support and drivers leaned out of their windows to give the people passing by high fives as they made their way down Figueroa Street toward USC.Emily Smith | Daily TrojanCivil unrest · Protestors hold up signs at an anti-Donald Trump rally that attracted thousands to downtown Los Angeles on Saturday morning. This was the largest gathering to take place in L.A. since the election results.The group of about 200 protesters passed by campus Saturday afternoon after splintering off from a larger gathering that marched from MacArthur Park to the Federal Building. According to the Los Angeles Times, as many as 8,000 demonstrators filled the streets downtown in the largest protest to take place in Los Angeles since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency last Tuesday. Protests there were mostly peaceful, with no arrests made on Saturday, though some freeway ramps were blocked, the Los Angeles Times reported.The splinter group followed Figueroa Street toward campus and briefly staged a sit-down at the intersection of Figueroa Street and Jefferson Boulevard. Los Angeles Police Department officers redirected traffic and formed a motorcade ahead of the protesters, warning cars ahead that they were coming. The group went as far south as Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, where several dozen people kneeled in remembrance of the civil rights leader and chanted “Black Lives Matter,” before turning on Vermont Avenue and heading back toward Downtown.The demonstrators included a number of USC students, some of whom started at the very beginning in MacArthur Park and others who joined the crowd as it passed by campus. William Yelton, a senior majoring in film and television production, said that he came because he wanted to send a message not just to Trump, but to a Republican-dominated Congress, that the people did not support the divisive rhetoric the President-elect employed against women, people of color, immigrants and LGBT people.“I acknowledge that Donald Trump is our president — I don’t think any of this is going to stop that,” Yelton said. “But without checks and balances in our government, we’re here to say, ‘No, you can’t just do whatever you want.’ We’ve made a lot of progress, and we’re not going to turn back the clock.”Noha Ayoub, a sophomore majoring in law, history and culture, said the protests were a reminder to the president-elect that the plans he has announced — such as deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants from the United States or repealing the Affordable Care Act — will not be tolerated.“Thirty years from now when we look back at 2016, I want to be able to say that I was doing something and not just lying around my apartment, business as usual, because it’s not,” Ayoub said. “There’s something so fundamentally abnormal and wrong about this year’s election that cannot be ignored. I think my anger manifested in the sense that I wanted to be part of the solution and not just a bystander.”The protests in Los Angeles are part of a national wave of discontent that has emerged in the wake of Tuesday’s election result, with people taking to the streets in New York City, Portland, Oregon; and Cincinnati, Ohio. While violence erupted when a man was shot during a march in Portland, Mayor Eric Garcetti praised the demonstrators’ peaceful protest in Los Angeles and supported their right to exercise their First Amendment rights.“I know the headlines are always the few people who jump onto a freeway or two or three people who spray paint something,” Garcetti said in an interview on CNN. “We’ll always deal with lawless behavior. The main story is that Americans, not just in my city but around the country, are saying we want to continue to embrace people regardless of how they worship God, who they love, where they live or even immigration status.”last_img read more
