Liverpool midfielder Fabinho proud of Mane assistby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool midfielder Fabinho is delighted after his assist for Sadio Mane’s opener in victory over Manchester United on Sunday.The Brazilian laid on his first goal for Liverpool before turning in a dominant display that led to an eventual 3-1 victory.“It’s a thing I always try to perfect, to train,” Fabinho said of his chipped pass. “I get a lot of [the] ball, in a position that normally the opponent’s defence is making the move outwards, and our attackers are getting in.“I saw Mane making the sign with his hand and I launched it.”It was a good pass.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Barcelona boss Valverde: I’m as much a photographer as a coachby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveErnesto Valverde admits he regards himself as much as a photographer as a coach. The Barcelona trainer has spoken about how important it is for him to take advantage of the time he has to work with his cameras.”It’s clear that photography is a way to escape, but it’s not a hobby for me, it’s something very serious in my life,” he said to La Vanguardia.”When I was 17 years old, playing at Alaves, I was studying to get an industrial masters in electronics, a job that I never practiced.”At that time I liked to take photos but more as a hobby, until one day, with my first salary as a footballer, I asked a friend to bring me a camera from the Canary Islands.”It cost me 40,000 pesetas, I remember perfectly.”Valverde gets emotional when he talks about the various stages of picture taking.”That moment when you are in the laboratory and you smell acetic acid, a fixative, the developer that you have mixed yourself at home…” he continued.”You turn off the light inputs and you put the red light bulb on, you put the paper in the bucket and you see the image come out, that moment is amazing.”Though he is well known as an ex-football player and coach, Valverde defines himself as a photographer.”I am a trainer as well as a photographer,” he added.”I like to educate my eyes a lot by looking at books and I admire those photographers who have the patience to wait for good light and perfect a good frame.”I’m more immediate and visceral and I’m also nonconformist with my work.”I want my photos not to be very comfortable or friendly, I want my work to be different.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
TagsLoan MarketAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd paid fortune to Alexis in bonusesby Paul Vegasa day agoSend to a friendShare the loveInter Milan striker Alexis Sanchez reportedly pocketed nearly £5m in bonuses from his dismal campaign last season with Manchester United.Sanchez was shipped out on loan to Inter Milan this summer after a dismal campaign for United which saw him score just two goals in 27 appearances.The Chilean forward joined United to huge fanfare in January 2018, signing as the club’s top earner on £400,000.The Sun says despite flopping last season, he picked up a whopping £4,920,011 in performance-related bonuses and image rights.That is the equivalent of a staggering £100,000 a week.Inter are currently paying half of Sanchez’s wages after United managed to offload the 30-year-old during the summer.
MONTREAL — Quebec paint manufacturers are seizing on the American-owned Sico paint company’s move to Ontario from Quebec by launching marketing campaigns and tapping into renewed sensitivity around local ownership after a string of closures and layoffs.Sico, an 81-year-old company bought by American giant PPG Industries Inc. in 2013, said last week it plans to close its plant in Quebec City and distribution centre in the Montreal area next September, eliminating 125 jobs.Quebec Premier Francois Legault and Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume have both invoked the idea of a Sico boycott.Denalt Paints, whose 60 employees make products under various brand names in Montreal, is buying ad slots on five radio stations around the province on top of a web and billboard campaign. Sales director Nicholas Le Marchand says pride in regional wares and “a perfect storm” of foreign purchases and local shutdowns is fostering more demand for Quebec products.Patrick Rodrigue, director of operations at the Laval-based Micca Paint Inc., says he is revving up for a multi-platform ad push to capitalize on the “opportunity.” Nearby, MF Paints — which just hired a chemist laid off from Sico — aims to more than double its Quebec market share to 20 per cent after being “swamped” with calls by hardware and building materials stores.Lowe’s Companies Inc. announced this month it will close 31 stores and other locations in Canada, including nine Rona outlets in Quebec, two years after acquiring the Montreal-area-based retailer. Three days later on Nov. 8, Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. announced it will lay off 5,000 workers company-wide, including 2,500 in Quebec, and sell off two units.Companies in this story: (TSX:BBD.B)The Canadian Press
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Data collected by Environment Canada shows that a series of thunderstorms caused over 7,000 lightning strikes to be recorded over Northeast B.C. on Sunday.Meteorologist Louis Kohanyi said that several massive thunderstorms began forming over the Rocky Mountains near Chetwynd and Hudson’s Hope during the middle of the afternoon Sunday. Kohanyi said however that daytime highs will only reach the low- to mid-20’s, meaning the Peace Region won’t see temperatures that were nearly as intense as those seen on Saturday and Sunday.Fort St. John and Dawson Creek both broke alltime high temperature records for July 28th on Saturday.The 29.4 degrees recorded at the North Peace Airport was 0.5 degrees hotter than the previous record of 28.9 degrees, which dated back to 1982.Dawson Creek meanwhile recorded a high of 29.8 degrees, which was 0.2 degrees higher than the last record, which also dated to 1982. Kohanyi explained that Environment Canada issued the first severe thunderstorm warning at around 6:45 p.m. for a thunderstorm near Chetwynd that began moving in a southeasterly direction.Another warning was issued for a thunderstorm that formed over East Pine and moved into the Dawson Creek area shortly after 9:00 p.m.A map of lightning strikes recorded over the B.C. Peace Region on Sunday. Photo by Environment CanadaIn total, Kohanyi said that there were approximately 7,000 lightning strikes recorded over the B.C. Peace Region during the course of the storms, which lasted over six hours and finally moved over Alberta at around midnight.A lightning bolt strikes near Pouce Coupe on Sunday evening. Photo by Alistair McInnisDawson Creek bore the brunt of the storms, as 20.6 millimetres of rain was recorded at the Dawson Creek Regional Airport. Of that, Kohanyi said 13.2 millimetres fell in just one hour, while wind gusts peaked at 65 kilometres per hour.In contrast, the North Peace Airport weather station only recorded 2.4 mm of rain and wind gusts of 57 km/h.A map of lightning strikes recorded over Western Canada.
