Valencia and Gayà want to join once the crisis is over for life

first_imgJose Luis Gayà, who will be 25 in May, lives his sixth season in the Valencia squad. Pedreguer’s winger, who came to the Black and White Academy at the age of 11, He already has 223 official matches on his legs with the Valencia shirt, a team that is also one of the captains. Gayà represents the feeling of belonging in the dressing room and the club wants him to represent him for life. Therefore, Valencia, As reported by SER, it intends to extend the contract in the coming months. Gayà, who has demonstrated his commitment in multiple transfer markets, will have an almost life-long contract on his table. Its clause is 100 million, although the amount is the least because Gayà has always refused to listen to offers from third parties. The winger plays for the club where he always wanted to and his wish would be to become what in England is known as a ‘one club men’, a man from a single club. Or at least be during his best years of professional football. Valencia (also the footballer) wants Gayà to follow in the wake of illustrious black and white youth squads like Fernando Gómez Colomer (553 official matches, 15 seasons in the first team), Ricardo Arias (521 matches, 16 seasons) or David Albelda (485 matches, 15 seasons). Gayà is currently the second footballer in the Valencia squad who has played the team for the longest years and the most. He is only surpassed by Parejo, who is in his 90th season and has entered the top-10 of footballers with the most games (373). Gayà knows this and he also wants to, although there is no hurry (he has a contract until 2023) and they will sit down to negotiate once the Covid-19 crisis has passed, which directly affects him as one of the footballers of the Valencia squad that has confirmed its infected.last_img read more

In the second half, Centennial went to the ground game keeping the ball away from El Segundo, but scored again in the fourth quarter on Taylor’s run from the five after a blocked punt by Scott Carr. “This was the school’s best week of practice in four years and it shows that good practice carries over to game time,” Centennial coach Aaron Craver said. Hawthorne had the fast start, but it was Inglewood with the big finish.

Verbum Dei took a 6-0 lead on its first drive with a 1-yard from sophomore quarterback Omar Herrea. The Eagles made it 12-0 on a 2-yard run by sophomore running back Donyae Fields. Simi’s first touchdown, a 1-yard run, came on the last play of the first half and cut Mary Star’s deficit to 12-7. “That play gave us the momentum we needed to come out and do better,” Mary Star coach Dino Andrie said. “We had been stopped in the red zone a few times and that helped give us a boost.” During the second half both team continued their running games but Mary Star took a 14-12 lead with a 21-yard touchdown run by running back Troy Fiamengo. Simi scored on another 1-yard run to make it 21-12. Verbum Dei managed to score with a 11-yard pass to junior wide receiver Sean McKnight with 1:16 left in the game. Despite allowing Verbum Dei to score toward the end, Andrie was satisfied with his team’s win and come from behind win. “It speaks of this team’s character,” Andrie said. “We knew if we lost, we would have no chance at the playoffs and the team kept fighting.” Mary Star had 170 total yards and 159 came from the running game. Simi had 96 yards from 16 carries and quarterback Brian Bornemann carried 10 times for 37 yards.

Malone scored on Gardena’s first possession of the second half, but then fumbled, threw an interception, and turned the ball over on downs for Gardena (0-7, 0-2). Justin Agapay rushed eight times for 32 yards for Gardena. Frustration began to set in the Westchester sideline as the Comets fell to visiting University, 32-6, in a Western League game. Both teams featured run-oriented offenses, but the Wildcats’ attack fared much better. Running back Travis Ross ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. Trevon Harris added 169 yards on the ground on 11 carries and found the end zone twice as well. Already up 6-0 on Harris’ first touchdown, the speedy running back broke free for a 52-yard dash to put University (5-2, 1-1) up by two touchdowns. During the closing seconds of the first half, Ross found daylight in the middle of the Comet defense and ran for a 44-yard touchdown. The backbreaker came in the third quarter for the Comets (2-5, 0-2). Running back Brandon Sheppard, who had been running the ball effectively to open the second half, fumbled inside the Wildcat 5-yard line. Four plays later, Ross turned the corner and sped down the sideline for a 96-yard touchdown run. The Comets had two promising drives in the second half but squandered chances to score with a fumble and costly penalties.

The legal battle of Standing Rock: Why did the Sioux sue?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest An easement is a right to cross or otherwise use someone else’s land for a specified purpose. In fancy lawyer language, an easement is a non-possessory right to use and/or enter into the real property of another without possessing it.A common example of an easement is the right of way which one landowner, A, may enjoy over the land of another, B. Easements are helpful for providing pathways across two or more pieces of property or allowing an individual to fish in a privately owned pond.The issue also comes up frequently with utilities. Most landowners dislike someone else being granted the right to use their property.The protest at Standing Rock, North Dakota is over this very issue. The Dakota Access Pipeline requested an easement from the Army Corp of Engineers to drill a pipeline underneath Lake Oahe, a water reservoir, located near the Standing Rock Reservation. On December 4, 2016, in a surprising move, the Army Corp of Engineers declined to issue the easement saying it was “clear that there’s more work to do” alluding to exploration of alternatives routes. I doubt this is the final determination in the matter, but a step in the right direction. Completion of an Environmental Impact Statement is the next step and anticipated to take two years.The legal issues in Standing Rock are fascinating and have not been given much attention by the media. Most news coverage refers to the Native American protestors as environmentalists and water protectors. These concerns are clearly present. In fact, the original path of the pipeline was near Bismark, until those residents complained of potential water contamination so the company rerouted the pipeline to the less affluent Standing Rock Reservation. In taking a less-populated route, the company was then able to abide by less stringent regulations.When the pipeline company sought the easement to drill under the reservoir, the Sioux sued, requesting an injunction from federal court. The issues raised by the tribe are more than environmental. The Sioux are concerned that the pipeline will pass through and destroy native burial sites and sacred places and assert that relevant federal law was not followed. And this is where their argument is compelling.The largest genocide in world history occurred when the European settlers of the United States displaced and nearly obliterated an entire Native American population. In partial recognition of the painful history of colonial land grabs, modern federal law accords certain rights to Native groups. Since 1992, this has included the right to be consulted. In essence, whenever a federal agency undertakes or approves a construction project, it must consult with local Native nations or tribes about whether sacred sites or places are nearby, regardless of the location of the property, so long as they attach religious and cultural significance to that property. This means a “government to government” collaboration throughout the entire project.Regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Sioux were never afforded an opportunity to collaborate or participate in any way until after the route was modified to drill under Lake Oahe and destroy sacred sites. Furthermore, the tribe alleges that the Dakota Pipeline relied on a 1985 survey, not bothering to conduct a current examination of the area, which would have indicated important artifacts and sites were present. And less than 24 hours after evidence of new sites were provided to the court, the company began construction on these same sites, perhaps destroying many of them forever.An injunction is sought when seeking to preserve the status quo during trial. Altering the status quo while a trial is underway thwarts the federal rule of law. This behavior by the pipeline company is so outrageous that it is likely without precedent.I do not claim to be an expert on the issues present at Standing Rock. Based on what I have seen on the news from North Dakota, I am confused. Farmers in Grand Lake St. Marys and other compromised watersheds must comply with extremely stringent rules when applying manure or chemical fertilizers. Yet Dakota Access requested and the Army Corp of Engineers dared to consider permitting a pipeline underneath a man made reservoir, when studies indicate the issue is not if a spill occurs, but when. Do big companies get to play by different rules?Imagine the consequences a farmer would face if he planted land that was awaiting determination as a wetland? He would lose all government payments and face extensive fines. Apparently consequences do not deter big business. How does a judge even sanction a company that defies an injunction and destroys sacred sites and artifacts that cannot be replaced or repaired? Likely a company bean counter has already calculated the potential cost of fines and merely included it in the project cost.Regardless of your position on the Standing Rock protest, agriculture could learn from the actions of the Native Americans. Over 280 different tribes and thousands of members joined in the effort to protest at Standing Rock that has been ongoing for over eight months. It is the largest gathering of Native Americans in a century. In addition, 3,000 army veterans joined in and sought to protect the Native Americans from violent acts and support their First Amendment right to free speech. Agriculture is so fractured, divided by commodity, grain or livestock, organic or traditional, commercial or small, region versus region. If agriculture could similarly unite, the resulting political clout would result in policy and prices beneficial to all farmers.last_img read more
