first_img0Shares0000Arturo Vidal will undergo minor knee surgery and is set to miss Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid © AFP / Bulent KilicBERLIN, Germany, Apr 16 – Arturo Vidal is a major doubt for Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid after coach Jupp Heynckes revealed on Monday that he needs minor knee surgery.The Chile international limped out of training on Sunday and Bayern are waiting to hear how long he will be sidelined for. “Arturo went down without any contact and injured himself,” said Bayern head coach Heynckes.“A part of the joint has come free. He needs a small operation and will be out for the short term, but we don’t yet know how long for.”Bayern host holders Real next Wednesday, April 25, in the first leg of their semi-final at the Allianz Arena, with the return leg in Madrid on May 1.However, Heynckes did not rule Vidal out of facing the Spanish giants.“He would have liked to play against Real,” said Heynckes.“Arturo is a fighter, he’s a very professional player and he really wants to play.“He is one of those players who can really bite his teeth, he is not squeamish and (he is) highly professional.”Nevertheless, losing the 30-year-old for forthcoming key games is a blow to Bayern’s hunt for the treble.Vidal will miss Tuesday’s German Cup semi-final against his old club Bayer Leverkusen.French midfielder Corentin Tolisso is also struggling to recover from a knock.A cup victory at Leverkusen would put Bayern in the May 19 final in Berlin — another step towards repeating their 2013 treble.The Bavarian giants have already secured a sixth straight Bundesliga title, holding a massive 20-point lead over Schalke at the top of the table with four games left.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img 6= Leighton Baines (Everton) – Nine assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – It’s not been a vintage season for England international Baines but the left-back, thanks to his ability at set-pieces, has still managed to assist a team-mate on nine occasions, which is pretty good considering how Roberto Martinez’s side struggled early on in the campaign. 8 The Premier League season has finished after a thrilling 38-game campaign and a goal-laden final day.In the ten games across the division on Sunday, 29 goals were scored in total, with Sergio Aguero’s strike for Manchester City against Southampton in their 2-0 victory securing him the golden boot as he finished the term with 26 goals, five ahead of Tottenham hotshot Harry Kane.What about the creators, though? In total, there were 975 goals in 380 matches up and down England, so who put the ball on a plate for the division’s best goalscorers and made the most assists?Click the arrow on the right above to find out… 8 3= Angel di Maria (Manchester United) – 10 assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – Signed for a British record fee of £59.7million from Real Madrid in the summer and, while he may have disappointed in some respects considering his huge price tag, he’s still managed to lay on ten goals for his Red Devils team-mates. 8 3= Chris Brunt (West Brom) – 10 assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – The Northern Irishman has, as the cliché goes, got a wand of a left foot and, if he isn’t slamming home the odd long range strike, he’s crossing the ball in to his team-mates with tremendous accuracy. 8 6= Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – Nine assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – Lauded as the player of the season by both his peers and the football writers, the Belgian superstar has been magnificent for the Blues in their title winning campaign. His darting runs from the left and breathtaking skill mean he’s able to create havoc and plenty of goals. 3= Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea City) – 10 assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – Tottenham fans were stunned by the news they would be swapping Icelandic midfield star Sigurdsson for Welsh defensive starlet Ben Davies and, after rejoining the Jacks, he’s starred in an attacking midfield role, plundering seven goals and making ten more for his team-mates. 8 1. Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) – 18 assists – One of the biggest signings of last summer, it was a shock to see Fabregas move to Stamford Bridge rather than return to former club Arsenal from Barcelona. It may well now be a regret of Arsene Wenger’s that he didn’t try harder to land the ex-Gunner, with £30million probably seeming like a snip to Jose Mourinho as the pair parade the Premier League trophy around west London. 2. Santi Cazorla (Arsenal) – 11 assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – The diminutive Spaniard has had an excellent season at Arsenal, both in terms of goals and assists. Seven strikes have helped the Gunners finish in third place and his 11 assists for team-mates like Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez were key as the north Londoners avoided having to play a qualifier to reach the Champions League group stage. 8 8 6= Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) – Nine assists – Click right to find out the Premier League’s top creator… – The season ended badly for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they slipped down to sixth following a 6-1 defeat to Stoke City but, in midfielder Henderson, they at least have a reliable performer, who can both score and create. 8last_img read more

first_imgApproximately 8256 number of children in County Donegal are to benefit from the roll-out of free GP care, which was announced in this week’s Budget, according to Senator Jimmy Harte.Senator Jimmy Harte with Minister Alex White.He said all these children in Donegal will be eligible for free GP care when it is rolled out, based on the latest Census data.“This is a historic and significant initiative which means that local families with children aged five and under no longer have to give a second’s thought about visiting the doctor when their child gets sick. “After years of making sacrifices to help stabilise the country, it is only fair that hard-pressed families in Donegal get something back from this Government. The roll-out of free GP care, along with other initiatives such as book rental schemes for every primary school in Ireland, is a shining example of how the Government is trying to make a tangible difference to people’s lives and circumstances.”The Letterkenny Senator said he commended Labour Minister Alex White for championing this particular issue at the Cabinet table for many months and hopes families in the locality can reap the benefits when the measure comes into effect in the second half of next year.“There is clear evidence that people delay or avoid visiting their GP where a fee is required. Removing this cost barrier will mean that local families will be far more likely to address medical problems at an earlier stage, leading to better outcomes and treatment that is of less cost to the State.“The Labour Party has long been campaigning for the principle of universal access to GP care and this is the first step. I am pleased that Labour Minister has delivered this historic public health initiative which not only reforms our health service but also gives back to families.”  8,256 CHILDREN TO BENEFIT FROM FREE GP CARE IN DONEGAL – HARTE was last modified: October 18th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Budget 2014GP carejimmy hartelast_img read more

(Visited 26 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Anything goes in secular science news these days; it’s Alice in Wonderland meets Stephen Hawking, like Bob Berman said of modern cosmology (10/06/04).  Notice that mentioning current-day observational facts (like a meteor crater, a roundworm, or a fossil) does not validate a speculative claim.  The presence of a connectome in a roundworm says absolutely nothing about the human brain.  A crater on Europa says nothing about life.  Don’t be fooled; none of the observational props provide necessary or sufficient conditions to establish scientific validity to any claim that is (1) speculative and (2) incapable of verification.  You can observe a robin in your yard; that does not give you the right to claim in the name of science that it got its avian lung from the ancestor of a monitor lizard 270 million years ago.  “Well, it might have” is no excuse.  Scientists need to stop imagining things; they need bigger vigor in their scientific rigor.center_img Things no one could possibly ever know are being reported by science journals and news sites as things worthy of scientific faith.Here are some far-out speculations coming from science sites recently:Asteroid that killed dinosaurs might have sent life to Mars (BBC News).A roundworm’s mind may be the first step toward understanding the human brain (Live Science).One-way breathing may have evolved 270 million years ago (Live Science).An ancient “fig wasp” lived 100 million years before figs evolved (Science Daily).A meteor may have delivered the building blocks of life to Europa (Space.com).Exoplanet hunters may find ET by glut of alien corpses (New Scientist)Life was possible in the early universe in the cooling glow of the big bang (Nature News).  This weakens the Anthropic Principle and the need for a multiverse.For the last claim in the list above, comments to PhysOrg‘s version of the story came from many who felt the subject was far too speculative and therefore unscientific.And yet these same priests and prophets of scientism, who take on the role of delivering scientific truths to the masses, routinely become filled with rage at critics of Darwinism, claiming they are enemies of science, that they don’t understand science, that they are religious nuts.  Casey Luskin just reported on Evolution News & Views a new case where bullies threatened disruption of a non-credit, optional class on intelligent design vs. evolution, and succeeded in getting the administration to cancel the class (for fear of bad publicity).  Hypocrites; the bullies belong to a group that calls itself the “Freethought Oasis.”Not a single one of the claims in the above list could be demonstrated by observation or experiment.  The perhapsimaybecouldness index for each one is exorbitantly high to the point of fantasy.  Any one of us could speculate wildly on similar subjects with equal credibility.  Try it; it’s fun:last_img read more
