United’s lack of liquidity pushes Pogba to Madrid

first_imgThe two main names on the table at United are Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho. for the attack front. With the current situation (and following the directive that Mourinho has given that it should not be sold to any club in the Premier) hiring Kane seems impossible. On the other hand, the sounding midfielder is Jack Grealish, from Aston Villa. The good performance of Bruno Fernandes also takes the strain off a possible Pogba exit… More and more voices at United indicate that it needs to be sold. Pogba approaches Madrid. That United needs liquidity to go to the market is not speculation. He said it himself Woodward, the entity’s CEO and chief executive officer, in a private forum of the football industry: “No one should be under any illusion about the magnitude of the challenge everyone faces in football and it may not be ‘business as usual’ for any club, including ourselves, in the transfer market this summer,” Woodward said. “As always, our priority is team success, great additions, but we need to know first what impact this crisis will have on the industry. On this basis, I can’t help but feel that speculation about individual player transfers for hundreds of millions of pounds this summer seems to ignore the realities facing the sport … “ He said in clear reference that United will not be able to cope with large additions. Of the three great names that are considered as incorporations for Madrid, Pogba, Haaland and Mbappé, it is the first, the Frenchman of United, who has it more complicated. The reason is simple: Florentino Pérez has never been very inclined to get involved in that operation, which he considers too expensive not to be an attacking player (a striker). However, being an express request from Zidane, Madrid tried his hiring twice, in 2016 and the summer of 2019. Now the name of Pogba is back on the table because he has a contract until 2021, Raiola, his agent, has already laid the foundations for an exit and the player would prioritize the white team before Juve or renew with United.It only remains to know how the crisis will affect the transfer market. These days it has transpired in England that United need liquidity to go to the market to make the two additions that Solsjkaer needs for next season, a striker and a midfielder. And given the situation of Pogba, everything indicates that its sale is the best solution. Last summer United already put a price on it: 180 million euros. This, would not be worth more than 100, considering that he only has one year left on his contract (although United can extend it one more unilaterally, it does not seem likely that he will) and that he has only been able to play five games as a starter for his ankle injuries.last_img read more

Cllr. Gloria Scott Earns Law Degree from Harvard

first_imgFormer Chief Justice of Liberia Cllr. Gloria Musu has joined a small group of Liberians to have graduated from the prestigious Harvard Law School (HLS) of Harvard University. Cllr. Scott was recently part of HLS 2017 graduating class upon completing the prescribed courses for obtaining an LL.M degree.Cllr. Scott served as Chief Justice of Liberia’s Supreme Court from 1997 to 2003. Prior to and after that post she was a practicing lawyer, a Senator, and most recently, the chair of Liberia’s Constitutional Review Committee.She might have reached the highest peak of the legal profession in Liberia, but an elated Scott Cllr. Scott, who walked out of the walls of HLS on May 25, told Harvard Law Today (HLT) days to her graduation that for the past year she has been eager to be a student again. “If you come here thinking you know,” she insists, “then you won’t learn.”The importance of a good education—and the conviction that an educated woman can accomplish anything she wants to—is something that was instilled in her from childhood by a family who made sure she went to the best schools that Liberia had to offer, (HLT) writer, Audrey Kunycky, said about the renowned Liberian female Lawyer.But it was looking at the lives led by her mother and grandmother, and the inequalities they faced, that led her to study economics and law, to join student government, and to begin to participate in the political process in Liberia.In a Mother’s Day message to her deceased mother, Cllr. Scott dedicated her newest achievement to her mom, who she said helped instill in her hard work, dedication, resilience and love of education.“HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, Ma Gertrude! This is for you. The seed you planted in my mind with your words are true. Education makes a woman’s life ‘different’. Thank you. I wish you were here to see that your vision is still alive and without boundaries or limitations. Sleep on with our God who has granted you eternal bliss. Ma Gertrude, I miss you,” she wrote on Facebook.Early in her career, Cllr. Scott was very instrumental in the formation of the Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia. The organization still exists, providing legal aid to indigent women and girls. Later, she convinced the few women serving with her in the legislature to form a caucus that would serve as a platform for women’s issues.In spite of the many challenges Liberia faces, Cllr. Scott remains optimistic about a brighter future for Liberia. “I know that Liberia has a lot of problems. The situation with our lands, and the inequality, has existed for 200 years. How do we solve it? We need some deep thinking.” She told HLT.“So that’s why I came—to know what is happening in the world, what makes the U.S. the way it is, or Europe? What is the philosophy, the guiding principles? I guess I wanted the rigor of taking my mind to another level.”Scott has been further inspired by her research and writing at Harvard coupled with her classes, which included Poverty, Civil Rights and Development, Systemic Justice, Environmental Law, and a reading group on Poverty and Democracy. “Coming here, reading the law, going back into history, I saw that there was a system in place that bred inequality,” she noted. “I’ve learned a lot. The different ways that you can use the law to alleviate poverty, the different models…I’m taking that back with me.”She is expected back home soon to work with law schools, and as well urge them to add environmental law to their curricula and to explore how environmental protections could benefit Liberia and the region.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Photo Credit Harvard Law Today – Advertisement –last_img read more

Syracuse University’s $2 Million Air Barrier Study

first_imgSU and several partners will test a variety of air barrier panels using a specially designed two-story “house” wired to monitor each panel’s performance during the four seasonsSyracuse University announced this week that it and several partners are about to launch a three-year, $2 million study of air barrier systems at a campus laboratory specially designed to analyze and control unintended air flow between outdoors and indoors.The research team is a big one. In addition to SU faculty and students, the partners include the industry group Air Barrier Association of America, which will install panels of various materials and properties; Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which will analyze data from instruments it installs in the lab to measure temperature, moisture, and air movement; the U.S. Department of Energy; the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority; and the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, whose mission is to create jobs through its research in environmental and energy technologies.The laboratory, formally known as the Building Envelope Systems Test Laboratory, resembles a two-story house. (Click here to view a recent report by WSYR-TV.) In place of windows, however, the building features 34 openings for test panels, each 4ft. wide by 9ft. high. Located in an open area on SU’s South Campus, the building gets full exposure to the distinctly seasonal weather common to Central New York. (We’re talking cold winters.)“This project represents a new approach to doing research, with an industry and government laboratory and a university collaborating together,” Laverne Dalgleish, executive director of the Air Barrier Association of America, told SU’s news service. “This is research that is international in scope and that will be used around the world.”last_img read more

Duncan Fletcher will lead India into World Cup: Dhoni

first_imgEnding speculation about coach Duncan Fletcher’s role in the five one-dayers against England, Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni today said that the Zimbabwean will stay as “boss” of the team until the 2015 World Cup.After the 1-3 Test debacle, Team India witnessed a major reshuffle on the coaching front with bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding consultant Trevor Penney forced to go on a break and BCCI appointing Ravi Shastri as the Team Director. But on the eve of the the first ODI, Dhoni said that Fletcher is still “the boss”.”He will lead us into the World Cup,” said Dhoni referring to the coach.”Also he is still the boss. We have Ravi Shastri who will look into everything, but Fletcher is the boss. It’s not as if his powers or his position have been curtailed. I don?t know what you feel from the outside, but operations still remain the same. We have a few other support staff coming into the dressing room, but overall the operation remains the same.”After taking over his director’s role, Shastri did mention that the new coaching staff, including Fletcher, will report to him during the limited-overs series. After Dawes’ and Penney’s ouster, former India all-rounder Sanjay Bangar and ex-pacer Bharat Arun were appointed assistant coaches with R. Sridhar as the fielding coach. Dhoni though clarified that Shastri’s role is more of a manager.”Ravi is here to oversee the operations from the outside, what he feels and everything else. It’s good to have him. He is a very proud (former) Indian cricketer, and at the same time, very positive. He believes a lot in fighting and having the right instincts, going over and giving his hundred percent. It is obviously good to have him. He also speaks the same language and can interact a lot with the players. Same is the case with other support staff so it is good to have them here,” said Dhoni.advertisementWhen asked if he was happy with the timing of the changes, the skipper replied, “It’s a bit tough on Trevor (Penney) and Joe (Dawes), especially when fielders drop catches and the fielding coach has to miss the series. But let’s hope for the best. We are welcoming the new guys because that is very important. They will be part of the dressing-room family as of now. We will have to give them some time to adjust to how we operate, and see what kind of input they bring to the table.”last_img read more
