Higuaín leaves Napoli for Juventus

Higuaín leaves Napoli for Juventus

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Yesterday, Italian football club Juventus F.C. announced signing of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín from their rival club S.S.C. Napoli. 28-year-old Higuaín signed a five-year contract with the Old Lady for an Italian record transfer fee of €90 million.

Debuting at the age of 17 in 2005, Higuaín has made 329 league appearances and scored 191 goals. He joined Spanish capital club Real Madrid in 2006. Spending six-and-half seasons with Los Blancos, Higuaín has won the La Liga title there.

Higuaín — nicknamed Pipita — joined Napoli in 2013. While there he broke the goal scoring record set by Gunnar Nordahl of the Italian Serie A, netting 36 goals in 35 appearances. He helped Napoli qualify for the UEFA Champions League as the club finished second in the league.

In remarks to Gazetta World following Higuaín’s agreement to the contract, AS Roma captain Francesco Totti said, “Footballers today are a bit like nomads[…] They follow money and not their hearts.” 40-year-old Totti has played 25 years for Roma, signing a one-year contract extention last month.

Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis said, “Some believe that talking of a betrayal is an exaggeration, but I think differently. In this move there is the full meaning of a betrayal, which includes ingratitude.” ((it))Italian language: ?C’è chi dice che parlare di tradimento sia esagerato, e invece io penso il contrario, perché in questa scelta c’è il senso pieno del tradimento, che comprende anche l’ingratitudine

Former Agrentine captain and Napoli legend Diego Maradona said, “This Higuain affair is hurting me because he is going to a direct rival like Juventus. But we cannot blame the player either. A player has a responsibility to himself and it is those fat cats of business that are grinning the most in this case. Nobody thinks of the fan.” ((es))Spanish language: ?Me duele lo de Higuaín, porque va a un rival directo, como la Juventus. Pero tampoco se le puede echar la culpa al jugador. Porque el jugador tiene su responsabilidad, pero los que hacen el negocio son los más felices. Nadie piensa en el hincha.

Higuaín has been assigned the number 9 jersey.

Different Alarm Types

byAlma Abell

There are several types of alarms that can be used in an alarm system in Chicago, some of which you might even think of adding onto your own system or make sure that they are part of a new system. Of course, in no way would you not have a burglar alarm, but are you aware of everything one can do? Typically, they consist of:

* Door and window sensors * Motion detection sensors * Keypad * Control panel * Signs stating that “You are protected”

You can have then installed by hardwiring them in to your existing electrical system or go the wireless route.

Safety Alarms

A safety alarm is just what it sounds like. They are a way of alerting you and/or your monitoring company to the presence of smoke or fire. They can be customized with a strobe or other sorts of flashing lights for homes where hearing-impaired people live or for seniors who are hard of hearing. They can even emit a high-pitched noise for those who are seeing impaired. It is true what they say, “where there is smoke, there is fire” and to be prepared for that possibility, you should have smoke detectors all through your home and fire alarms as well.

Medical Alarms

People are living longer now than at any other time and with aging there can be issues. You can install a standalone system which generally involves a piece of jewelry which allows you to call for help. This is a voice activated system. You can include medical alarms into your home security system by having a button on the keypad that signals distress.

Critical Systems Alarms

These are the alarms that many people aren’t aware of their existence. These types of alarms are designed to monitor your plumbing, cooling and heating systems. These are also monitored by your security company. If you are looking for a complete alarm system, look no further than Alert Protective Services.

Myanmar dissident Suu Kyi to run for parliament in by-elections

Myanmar dissident Suu Kyi to run for parliament in by-elections

Monday, November 21, 2011

Myanmar political dissident Aung San Suu Kyi will run for a seat in parliament in upcoming by-elections, National League for Democracy (NLD) senior official Nyan Win announced today. The NLD decided Friday to participate in the by-elections, but Suu Kyi did not say directly then that she would run.

The by-elections include 48 seats in Parliament, all of which the NLD intends to contest. Dates for the elections have not yet been set.

Suu Kyi was released from house arrest last year. She had stated she would only accept an unconditional release, not a release on conditions. On Friday, in advocating participation in the upcoming by-elections, she remarked, “Some people are worried that taking part could harm my dignity. Frankly, if you do politics, you should not be thinking about your dignity.”

The military junta of Myanmar held elections last November, which NLD boycotted since many dissidents — including Suu Kyi — were not allowed to run. The junta responded by legally revoking the NLD’s status as a political party. The NLD voted Friday to re-register as a party.

Last year’s election was the first since 1990, when the NLD won a landslide that the military junta refused to acknowledge. A year later, Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Various parties have acknowledged recent signs of political reform in Myanmar, such as the relaxing of the law that had prevented Suu Kyi and many other political dissidents from participating in elections last year. Suu Kyi in a speech last Monday was cautiously positive about recent developments. US President Obama announced Friday that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Myanmar in December, an unprecedented move since the military coup in Myanmar in 1962. The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) at its recent summit decided to allow Myanmar to hold ASEAN’s rotating chair in 2014.

SEPTA buys rail cars from NJ Transit to deal with crowding

SEPTA buys rail cars from NJ Transit to deal with crowding

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

As gas prices have risen in the United States, the regional transport authority for southeastern Pennsylvania, SEPTA, has seen a sharp increase in ridership, which has caused overcrowding on the trains.

“As fuel prices have continued to rise, SEPTA ridership has steadily increased and is the highest in 18 years,” said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey. Monthly ridership was 22 percent higher last month than a year ago.

“They have crushed loads on their rail lines, already where people are standing, and there’s not enough seats,” said Rich Bickel, the director of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

“At peak times some railcars are standing room only and commuter parking lots are nearly full. All Regional Rail lines are running near full capacity and the train station parking lots are at about 90 percent capacity or more,” SEPTA spokesperson Felipe Suarez said.

While SEPTA awaits new Silverliner V trains from Hyundai Rotem, which begin arriving in 2009, it had hoped to lease eight rail cars from New Jersey Transit, at an agreed-upon rate of US$10,000 per month. However, due to problems with insurance and liability indemnification, the deal fell through, according to Casey.

SEPTA has entered a new agreement to purchase the eight rail cars from NJ Transit. The transit authority will pay US$670,000 for the cars and assorted supplies plus one additional inoperative car which will be used for spare parts. The rail cars will be operated using a SEPTA provided locomotive as they are not self-propelled.

The cars are being disposed of by NJ Transit because it has switched from single-floor cars to double-decker cars.

SEPTA is expecting to raise US$3.1 million by selling rail that has been out of service since 1981 at auction.

3 Reasons To Hire Moving Companies In Minneapolis

byAlma Abell

Whether Minneapolis residents move across town or to other countries, relocations can be stressful. Relocating to a new home may be exciting, but moving a houseful of belongings can overwhelm anyone. Fortunately established Moving Companies in Minneapolis have the experience and tools to simplify the process. Experts like Action Moving Services Inc. will identify and solve problems, safeguard clients’ property and provide storage solutions.

Movers Anticipate and Avoid Problems

Moving Companies in Minneapolis provide free estimates. Their technicians specialize in fast, accurate time and cost estimates. They listen to customers’ needs and design creative solutions. That includes identifying and solving issues like transporting heavy items or getting items down stairs. They also offer guidelines that reduce stress through careful planning. Technicians can provide checklists that include timelines. These tips ensure the customers do not forget steps like throwing out items they do not want, preparing appliances or having utilities turned off at the right time.

Technicians Protect Clients’ Belongings

Professional movers are also packing experts. If clients want to do their own packing, technicians will estimate the number and types of cartons they need and then supply them. However, most customers let technicians get items ready for shipment. These well trained specialists can protect anything from priceless antiques to heavy machinery. They are also careful with clients’ flooring, doors and walls, which are often covered or padded during moves. Professionals also use tools like dollies and liftgates to safely maneuver items. Trucks are heavily padded and loads may also be strapped down, to keep them from shifting.

Clients Can Arrange for Custom Storage

Many clients need all or part of their things warehoused, so moving companies provide secure storage. They will pick up items from one or more locations and transfer them to safe facilities. Movers often include crating and packing services designed to protect their contents. Warehouses typically include sprinklers, alarm systems and video surveillance.

Homeowners who want trouble-free household relocations rely on experienced moving companies. These professionals can foresee and avoid many problems and keep clients’ belongings safe during transport. They also offer secure storage facilities where clients can warehouse items until they are needed.

Police station attacked by car bomb in Basque Country, two officers injured

Police station attacked by car bomb in Basque Country, two officers injured

Friday, August 24, 2007

A police station of the Spanish Guardia Civil was attacked today Friday by a car bomb in the Basque city of Durango, injuring two policemen. It is believed to be the first serious attack of the separatist group ETA since it unilaterally ended a cease-fire in June. The blast caused serious damage to the police barracks in Durango, shattering windows and damaging police cars parked outside. Several nearby apartment buildings were also damaged. Police sources believe the bomb, estimated to contain between 80 and 100 kilograms of explosives, was detonated remotely by one of the two attackers who fled in another vehicle. Another car exploded about one hour later in the town of Amorebieta, possibly the one used by the activists to flee.

ETA detonated two small explosive devices on July 25 along the route that the Tour of France used when the race dipped into northern Spain for a few hours.

ETA called the cease-fire in March 2006, but grew frustrated with a lack of government concessions in ensuing peace talks, and set off a huge bomb in a parking area at Madrid’s airport on December 30, killing two people. It insisted then that the truce was still in effect, but finally declared it formally over in June, and Spanish security forces have been on alert ever since.
