Real Madrid have plenty of reasons to sign Reinier

first_imgFlamengo raised the top national title ten years later, and Reinier was a revelation actor in the conquest. His great performances were important in the final stretch, in which the Carioca team distanced themselves from their persecutors. He is one of those players who has the gift of opportunity and that if it appears in the last meters of the field it is to generate danger.A fixed at the bottom of the CBFWhere he has always been the protagonist has been with the canarinha. In the Brazilian Confederation they have followed their trajectory from a very young age. They have protected and helped him a lot in his evolution. The good deal has caused the national shirt not to weigh. On the contrary: has shown your best level when he has attended the concentrations. He already stood out in the U-15 and was one of the best players in the South American U17 which was played in Peru, although Brazil fell surprisingly eliminated in the group stage due to a four-point draw. Months later he was summoned to the World Cup, but Flamengo opposed. Yes that will be in the Pre-Olympic which is celebrated in Colombia from January. Despite his age, he has been summoned with the U23 to meet the objective of classifying Tokyo Olympics. The signing of Reinier Jesus by Real Madrid is a matter of official status. In one day, when the soccer player still Flamengo Coming of age, its incorporation will be announced. The idea of ​​the club is that it arrives to reinforce the Castile from Raul, which does not go through its best moment. However, the illusion generated by the new Brazilian pearl in the club is evident.Characteristics of Rai or KakaAt 17, Reinier has become an idol for Fla’s fondness for his personality and self-confidence. Soccer, it is difficult to find a player at his age with his intelligence and vision of the game. A mental speed that allows you to make a difference. Its natural position is that of half-point, although, being right-handed, it has a tendency to fall to the left side. Far from being a dribbler, its main technical value is in fast driving, always with the ball attached to the foot.His coach in Brazil Under-17, Dalla Dea, came to compare him with two cracks like Rai and Kaka. “I see it as a ten. It has the characteristics of both. He likes to get into the area and scores goals from outside,” he said.Good data with Flamengo in BrazilAs if that were not enough, he has a remarkable goalscoring intuition considering that he is not an area player. In the last season of Brasileirao I just needed 2.66 shots to score, being the second best player in this statistic. He was also the second in goal per minute: one every 118. He only beat the pichichi of the tournament, Gabriel Barboza, which he scored every 102. In total there were six goals in 15 games that only increased the interest of the greats of Europe. Three of them were leaving from the bench, proving to be a revulsion of guarantees for their technician, Jorge Jesus.last_img

Watford are using their doubters as motivation for Premier League survival, Odion Ighalo tells talkSPORT

first_imgWatford’s Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has challenged his teammates to prove the press wrong and stay in the Premier League this season.The 26-year-old joined the Hornets in 2014 and has scored five goals already in the Premier League this season – only Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero have scored more.Ighalo believes Watford have enough quality to fend off relegation this season, and says he is using the doubters in the media as motivation.“I think it will send a big message to the whole team because, as I said, they are flying at the moment and doing really well,” Ighalo told talkSPORT’s Warren Haughton.“I think every other Premier League team will sit up and take notice of us. Every team that came up from the Premier League from the Championship the press have written off.“Yes (it is all about survival) and they’ve already written us off, but if we want to remain in the Premier League we must fight on and prove them wrong.”last_img

Unnecessary C-sections discouraged

first_imgWASHINGTON – Women who want several children should avoid the new trend of purely elective Caesarean sections – planned surgical births when there’s no clear medical need – government advisers said Wednesday. But for mothers-to-be who plan only one or two children, there’s too little research to say definitively whether it’s a good or bad idea. So concluded scientists assembled by the National Institutes of Health who spent three days hearing an impassioned debate on the apparent rise in elective C-sections – only to conclude there are few easy answers. The panel’s chief recommendations: 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event The risk to future pregnancies means that women planning more than one or two children should not have a purely elective Caesarean. Topping the concern is that a prior Caesarean significantly increases the risk of a life-threatening placenta problem in a later pregnancy. Newborns are more likely to have respiratory problems if they’re born by Caesarean, regardless of the reason for the surgery. So doctors should perform elective C-sections only if they’re sure the woman has reached at least 39 weeks of gestation, when fetal lungs are fully mature. Full-term pregnancies are typically defined as lasting 40 weeks from the start of the last menstrual period, but gestational age can be difficult to measure correctly. Doctors should never bring up the option of a purely elective C-section. But if a mother-to-be requests one, the health provider should determine her reason for the request and help weigh the risks and benefits. If the woman’s reason is a fear of pain during labor and delivery, doctors should help her choose from among the multiple safe options to avoid that; pain-numbing epidurals are the most effective. Caesarean recovery can be painful, too. last_img

‘Missed Pogba big time’ – Olly Murs’ derby verdict on talkSPORT

first_imgPaul Pogba’s absence cost Manchester United dearly in Sunday’s Manchester derby, according to pop superstar and Red Devils fan Olly Murs.Pogba, the midfielder, was forced to sit out the Etihad clash with an injury, and he had to watch from the sidelines as City secured a convincing 3-1 defeat of their local rivals. MONEY huge blow David Silva and Sergio Aguero put the hosts in control before Anthony Martial converted a penalty to hand United hope they could rescue a point in the final half-hour. However, Ilkay Gundogan netted City’s third in the final minutes after a brilliant team move to put the result beyond all doubt.The result returned City to the top of the Premier League table and opened up a 12-point gap between Pep Guardiola’s side and Jose Mourinho’s United.City were considered favourites for the match prior to kick-off, and losing Pogba – widely regarded as United’s best outfield player – increased their chances of victory even further.

How South Africa can decolonise feminism

first_imgAuthor and poet Toni Stuart spoke passionately about feminism, identity, and belonging at a conference called “Decolonising Feminism”. She drew from her own experiences as a mixed race South African.Masters student Mikaela Erskog (left) and author Toni Stuart are two of the many speakers at the Decolonising Feminism conference in August 2016. (Image: Priya Pitamber)Priya PitamberWhen poet, performer and spoken word educator Toni Stuart talks about “decolonising feminism”, she is thinking about feminism in a holistic nature – a feminism that takes into account various aspects of life that affect women: political, social, emotional, mental, physical, intellectual, psychological and spiritual well-being.“I think it means a feminism that acknowledges and is aware that women come from a range of experiences, backgrounds, cultures and ways of being in the world, and as a result, their experience of patriarchy is going to be different.” Proposed solutions, she says, should speak to such a range of experiences.For Stuart, it also means it is a way to examine, critically, how colonialism and the colonial way of thinking have affected feminism and to a find a way root it out.She presented a paper at the Decolonising Feminism conference, hosted by the Wits Centre for Diversity Study earlier this year, called My Mother’s Tongue is Mengels: the re-appropriation of the female voice in South African historical narratives as discursive space for re-imagining the “coloured” identity.In her paper, Stuart shared her personal experience through the poetry collection she was working on called Krotoa-Eva’s Suite, a Cape Jazz poem in three movements.Krotoa, she said, was a Khoi woman who lived during the 17th century. From the age of 10 or 11, she lived and worked in the home of Jan van Riebeeck. Her Khoi name was Krotoa, but the Dutch gave her another name: Eva.She also served as a translator between the Dutch and the Khoi during the cattle wars because she spoke both languages. Krotoa eventually married a white settler and was baptised into Christianity. Her children were the first documented mixed race offspring in the Cape.“She moved between these two worlds,” Stuart explained. “My aim with the collection was to tell her story in her own voice. I am trying to imagine how she felt, what she experienced and her personal thoughts and ideas as she moved through her life, with all of its trials and triumphs.”A few lines from Stuart’s poem:From the woman speaks, the opening poem to Krotoa-Eva’s Suite:I am the onewhose bones are strong enoughto carry the weight of two skinsI am the onewhose mouth is supple enoughto hold the secrets of two tonguesno matter who I tell you I amdo not believe meno matter who I tell you I amI am alwaysonlyhalfof myselfListen to her passionate recital:Through her writing and research, Stuart was able to examine her own identity as a “coloured” South African woman.“I was able to sit the uncomfortable questions of ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Where do I come from?’ and ‘Who are the people in my lineage that have been written out of our history?’“And specifically, who are the women, black and indigenous women, who have been written out of my lineage, because of the colonial and apartheid projects?”“To inspire means to breathe in spirit” – Toni Stuart @nomadpoet ever giving me shivers & inspiration at #DecFem2016— Ama Josephine Budge (@AmJamB) August 26, 2016Unpacking the subjectProfessor Maria Lugones was the key speaker on the topic at the Decolonising Feminism conference. Her paper was called Heterosexualism and the Modern Colonial Gender System.Hailing from Argentina, it was her first visit to South Africa.Professor Maria Lugones gives the keynote address at the Decolonising Feminism conference in August 2016. (Image: Priya Pitamber)“The colonial look is looking at people as animals if they were not European, they were not seen as men and women, as human, they were seen as property,” she explained. “Colonialism was a denial of humanism – their ways were seen as uncivilised.”She said the colonial imposition of gender cut across areas of ecology, economies, government, spirituality, and knowledge and the analysis of it was what she called “the coloniality of gender”.“Unlike colonisation, the coloniality of gender is still with us. It is what lies at the intersection of gender/class/race as central constructs of the capitalist world system of power,” she said.Significance in South AfricaThe legacy of the violence of apartheid and colonialism still affected us because it affected the way we valued ourselves and each other, Stuart said. We had inherited the wounds of previous generations.“In order to heal, we need to learn how to face these wounds, our wounds, with compassion and love and care.“Part of the wound for ‘mixed’ or ‘coloured’ South Africans is that so much of our history has been read more

Diaspora dollars spur African development

first_imgWith several businesses and a mosque associated with Harlem’s large West African immigrant community, a small but growing section of New York city has been nicknamed Le Petit Senegal, or Little Senegal. (Image: Joseph A, Flickr)• Good Governance Africa79 Oxford Road, Saxonwold 2196, South Africa+27 11 486 0794info@gga.orggga.orgFelicity ThompsonWhen El Hadji Sall left Senegal as a young man to study electrical engineering at Howard University in Washington, DC, he planned to return home upon graduation. Thirty years later Sall is still in the United States and now bridges two worlds as an African and an American. Holding dual nationality, he is a religious leader, an engineer and an active figure in encouraging members of Senegal’s large diaspora to invest in their homeland.“The money is here. People like me, there are thousands of them,” Sall says of the shared desire among his fellow expatriate countrymen to spur progress in their mother country. “If we could sit down and talk seriously about getting the diaspora involved then I believe that
 Senegal could become a developed country very soon.”Sall is one star in a wide constellation of Africans scattered abroad who have kept strong ties to their native lands. It is difficult to pin down the number of Africans living abroad, partly because the definitions of the continent’s diaspora vary. The World Bank estimates that Africa’s “foreign-born population” in 2010 was just over 30-million, but this only counts first-generation migrants, thus excluding “children and grandchildren who may have ties to the origin country”. The African Union (AU), however, has a much broader definition: it defines the diaspora as “peoples of African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality”. Using the AU’s definition, the bank estimates that more than 168-million Africans are living in the Americas and Europe.Under either definition, in 2010 expatriate Africans sent home huge sums: US$51.9-billion to help family and friends with the daily cost of living, according to the World Bank. In 2012 the figure reached $60-billion, while the estimate for 2013 is $62.9-billion.Find out more about Harlem’s Little Senegal – Le Petit Senegal – and the West African immigrants living and working there:Going home to helpRemittances are not the only way of contributing to development back home. A lot of Ethiopian-Americans live in the US but keep ties to their country through their relatives who still live there, says Melaku Nagussie, an Ethiopian-American engineer. “And they have a need to go back to help their country in some fashion.”Nagussie’s Ethiopia is one country that has succeeded in maintaining ties with émigrés through specific policies and dialogue. The east African government established its Diaspora Directorate in 2002 and now has an online portal where Ethiopian expatriates can find information about investing, tax and customs procedures. They can also apply for the “yellow card”, which entitles foreign-born Ethiopians to enter the country without a visa, work without a permit and own residential property.In addition, several Ethiopian ministries house diaspora affairs units. For example, the health ministry partnered with exiled physicians in March 2009 to set up the country’s first emergency room training school, which has trained 4 000 first responders, basic trauma providers and technicians. The 170 members of the Ethio-American Doctors Group are working with the government to build, train and staff the country’s first internationally accredited tertiary hospital with services that will include surgery and psychiatry. Construction of the 300-bed hospital is scheduled to start in June and should be completed by the end of 2016.Open dialogue and a common purpose are behind the training school and future hospital, says Dr Addis Tamire Woldemariam, who works at the health ministry’s diaspora unit. “That’s the secret behind every success with engaging the diaspora.”Creating strong networksEthiopia is unique in that its well-educated diaspora shares its skills, access to capital and experience with innovations to create strong networks that are “transforming Ethiopia”, says Liesl Riddle, a professor at George Washington University in Washington, DC, who has studied diaspora investment for 20 years.One example is Eleni Gabre-Madhin, an American-educated Ethiopian economist who returned home in 2005 and set up the country’s first commodities exchange in 2008. The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange now boasts more than 350 members trading coffee, sesame, maize and pea
beans. The exchange settled $20-million daily in
2010, according to the ECX website.Another is Daniel Gad, a former vice-president of AT&T, who set up MetroLux Flowers in 2003, an ambitious venture that boosted Ethiopia’s fledgling cut-flower industry into the world’s fourth-largest exporter. Gad read more
