He has been saying this for many, many years, it’s not just been for a few weeks.“Unfortunately the club has not been able to deliver on the promise of building a competitive team.”FC Barcelona vs Messi : Messi’s father likely to meet Barcelona officials on WednesdayMessi, 33, last won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2015 and an 8-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals last month was the final straw for the six-time world player of the year.Messi, who failed to turn up for pre-season training on Monday, had previously labelled his side “weak” and “inconsistent” after surrendering the league title to rivals Real Madrid.The club has spent millions on players in the transfer market who have not come good in recent years and transfer strategy is something Font hopes to change if he is elected president.“Currently you have the president, the chairman of the board and even some directors making decisions about signings, about selling players and that needs to be changed,” Font, who hopes to succeed president Josep Maria Bartomeu in the election next March, added.“That’s why we’ve been working on a project and we need people to lead that who come from the world of football.”Lionel Messi’s father and agent headed to Barcelona on Tuesday for what Argentine media said was a meeting with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu. TV pictures showed Jorge Messi boarding a private plane in Rosario. The plane was destined for the United States, from where he would proceed to Spain, local newspapers Ole and Capital de Rosario reported.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares As if 2020 hasn’t been challenging enough, the forthcoming US election could bring forth another wave of volatility in the markets. Even so, I think all UK investors should take the battle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden in their stride. Learning to think like master money-maker Warren Buffett will definitely help.Buffett’s first ruleBuffett’s first rule of investing — “never lose money” — is good all-weather advice. As such, I think it’s likely the ‘Sage of Omaha’ will continue to recommend that all investors should do their homework, regardless of who might win the US election. The more you know about a company before buying its shares, the better your chances of making money.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Gambling with your cash based on the outcome of events, however tempting, isn’t advised. This is partly why the wealthiest investor on the planet doesn’t have a TV in his office. Not being hooked up to the 24/7 newsflow allows him to concentrate on the things that truly matter. The businesses he buys stakes in.Buffett’s first rule has an additional meaning for those investing in the UK. By not keeping your shares within an ISA, you will lose money by virtue of paying capital gains tax on any profits you make. To make matters worse, you’ll also be taxed on any dividend income you receive from stocks you own. This double-whammy could really hurt your chances of ever making it to millionaire-status.Keep buying wonderful companiesBuffett buys shares in quality businesses when they go on sale. The coronavirus crash earlier in the year was an excellent example of when, to parphrase the great man, “we should all have been greedy rather than fearful.” The forthcoming US election could be another. Great companies are likely to remain great. This is regardless of who emerges triumphant and whatever decisions they make during their presidential term. Sure, increased regulation of big tech giants, or the resumption of the trade war between the US and China, could make investors temporarily skittish. But the major themes of investing in the years ahead are unlikely to be affected.Companies specialising in clean energy sources, for example, are very likely to remain popular, given the ongoing concerns around climate change. Demand for healthcare will also continue to rise as populations age. The need for cybersecurity will increase as the amount of ‘smart’ stuff in our homes grows.None of the above will be impacted by who gets the keys for the White House. Invest accordingly. Hold foreverMarket commentators will continue to speculate over what a second term for Trump, or a first for Biden, will mean for global markets. The truth is, it really shouldn’t matter to ISA investors buying shares for the long term.Buffett has frequently said that his favourite holding period is “forever.” Earlier this year, he also remarked that “nothing can stop America when you get right down to it.”So far, he’s been absolutely right. Pull up a chart of the S&P 500 index over the last 50 years, or so. You’ll see a line rising from the bottom left to the top right. In other words, US stocks have gained massively in value, regardless of all the Republican and Democratic leaders over that time.Don’t fear any US-election volatility. Do the same as Buffett.

Imprisoned journalist Mayo Hernández gets conditional release on health grounds

Reporters Without Borders welcomes this development and hopes the Cuban authorities will show the same clemency towards all imprisoned journalists, whose release is warranted by their innocence as well as their state of health. May 6, 2020 Find out more RSF_en CubaAmericas Follow the news on Cuba CubaAmericas Reporters Without Borders welcomed the release today of independent journalist Mario Enrique Mayo Hernández after 27 months in prison. One of the 74 dissidents who was arrested in a major crackdown in the spring of 2003, Mayo was given a conditional release on health grounds.“We are delighted to learn that he is free and reunited with his loved-ones, even if his release is only conditional,” the press freedom organisation said. “We hope the Cuban authorities will show the same clemency towards the other dissidents, including 24 journalists, who are still in prison and whose release is warranted by their innocence, as well as their state of health.”Mayo was arrested on 19 March 2003 along with 26 other journalists who were victims of the “black spring.” He was tried on 3 April 2003, found guilty of endangering “the independence and territorial integrity of the state” under article 91of the Cuban criminal code, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.Aged 41, he has been held in three prisons in the eastern province of Holguín, in the southeastern province of Santiago de Cuba and finally in the eastern province of Camagüey, where he is from. At times he has been subjected to the harshest prison regimes and has often been banned from receiving visits. His hunger strikes, including the most recent one in July, aggravated an already serious deterioration in his state of health brought on by prison conditions. His ailments include glaucoma in the left eye, high blood pressure, pulmonary emphysema and prostate inflammation, as well as acute depression.Mayo is the seventh of the journalists imprisoned in 2003 to be freed for health reasons. His permission to leave prison and live at home is valid for one year.Mayo began working as an independent journalist in 2000, when he joined the Colegio de Periodistas Independientes de Camagüey (CPIC), an independent news agency, after being fired from his job as a lawyer because of his dissident views. A year leader he founded his own agency, called the Félix Varela agency, sending reports to the Miami-based website and to the Miami-based radio station Radio Martí.A few hours after Mayo Hernández was freed, Anna Bikont, of the Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza, and a Swiss journalist, Nelly Norton, were arrested in the provinces after meeting an opposition activist. The two women were taken to Havana and were due to be deported on 2 December.

Radio host’s murder highlights dangers for journalists

first_imgNews PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is deeply saddened by radio journalist Joash Dignos’ targeted killing on 29 November in Valencia City, on the southern island of Mindanao, and urges the Philippine authorities to take preventive security measures whenever a journalist is threatened.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Dignos, whose murder has again highlighted the dangers to which journalists are exposed in the Philippines,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Coming six days after the anniversary of the 2009 massacre of 32 journalists in nearby Maguindanao, now commemorated as International Day to End Impunity, the murder shows that the Philippine authorities still have a great deal to do to fulfil their duty to protect journalists and combat the continuing impunity.“We hail the creation of a special task group to catch the perpetrators and instigators of this murder, but the authorities must act preemptively to end violence against journalists. Dignos had been threatened for some time and should have had protection. A special task group could have been created after the first threats. Execution-style killings of journalists should not be regarded as inevitable.”Dignos was murdered while with friends in a restaurant on the evening of 29 November. When he went to the toilet, four unidentified individuals gunned him down and then left on motorcycles. At least 28 gunshot wounds were found on his body.The host of a show called Bombardier on dxGT Radio Abante, 48-year-old Dignos tackled substantive issues, did not hesitate to criticize the authorities, including Valencia’s mayor, and had received death threats.Last June, a grenade was thrown at the radio station while his programme was being broadcast. It had been pre-recorded for safety reasons and, as result, a security guard was the only person injured.The manner of his murder was similar to that of fellow radio journalist Jesus Tabanao, who was shot five times by a man on a motorcycle in Kamputhaw, Cebu City, on 14 September. One of the shots hit him in the heart, killing him on the spot. A former presenter on Bombo Radyo Cebu, Tabanao was a commentator for a programme on DyRC Radyo Calungsod that combats drug abuse and had worked for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency since 2008.He was killed while on his way to pick up his wife, who had been with friends celebrating the award of the “Miss Press Freedom” prize to the journalist Jessa Marie Agua as part of Cebu City’s media freedom week.The police said they thought Tabanao was killed in connection with his work and took his mobile phones in an attempt to establish whether he had recently received threats.The Philippines is ranked 140th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

first_img Top of the News 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Letterman Lancers receiver Ricky Blair making a catch last year v. Allan Hancock.With the 2015 season only a few weeks away, the Pasadena City College football team is in full pad drills under first-year Lancers head coach Thom Kaumeyer.While the ’15 roster has not been finalized, 17 lettermen are joined by a large freshmen class. Among the returning players are ’14 leading tackler and linebacker Jalyn Williams (73 tackles, three sacks, three fumble recoveries, Cathedral High), linebacker Terry Wilson (40 tackles, Muir HIgh), linebacker Sean Cowell (40 tackles, La Salle HS), defensive back Robert Morgan (25 tackles, two interceptions, Oaks Christian), and medical redshirt defensive back Evan Alexander (20 tackles, one interception in 2013, Etiwanda).On offense, running back Justin Carroll was the team’s leading rusher (just 251 yards, 4.7 per carry, from Illinois Guilford High) while Ricky Blair (31 receptions, four TDs, 17.6 per catch, Los Altos) performed as the team’s second-most productive wide receiver last year.“We’re a work in progress,” Kaumeyer said. “We’re lucky to have some experience on defense especially at linebacker. We’re still going to be a very young team. The assistant coaches and myself are learning what the players strengths may be while many of our players are making the adjustment to the college game.”PCC begins the season on Saturday, Sept. 7 when the Lancers travel to face El Camino College.
