The maritime executive

The Spanish authorities, in collaboration with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), are deploying drones on the busy shipping lanes of the Strait of Gibraltar to monitor the level of sulfur oxides released by ships navigating the one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. EMSA said the program, which is an extension of similar efforts previously carried out in specially designated emission control areas in northern Europe, has identified nearly 10% of vessels passing through the Strait of Gibraltar for a further inspection to detect possible violations of current sulfur regulations.

EMSA’s remotely piloted aircraft (RPAS) carried out two daily flights with an average of ten inspections per day as part of an operation led by the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. Led by the Spanish Directorate General of the Merchant Navy, the program began its flights in mid-July from a base in Tarifa and will continue until the end of October.

According to an EMSA report, current figures indicate that a total of 294 have been monitored and 27 have been found in possible violation of the 0.5% sulfur content limits in their fuel. The measurements and records are automatically encoded in the information exchange system which triggers an alert in the EMSA THETIS-EU database. Although EMSA notes that this does not directly confirm the non-compliance, it helps port authorities target ships for inspection and perform the necessary laboratory tests to confirm the composition of the fuel. Violations can lead to possible sanctions.

The project to test the effectiveness of drones in measuring polluting emissions from ships was set up by the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA), in collaboration with the Harbor Master’s Office of ‘Algeciras and the General Directorate of the Merchant Navy. Using EMSA remotely piloted aircraft systems, the objective is to detect sulfur oxide emissions above levels indicating a possible violation of the International Convention on Marine Pollution (MARPOL – Annex VI).

The aircraft used is a CAMCOPTER S100 and it is under contract with the EMSA of the consortium of Nordic Unmanned, Norce and UMS Skeldar. It has several features that make it a useful tool for service, including the ability to take off and land vertically from an area less than 25 square meters, a flight range of over six hours, and a range of over 60. miles. To help detect gases generated by fuel combustion and expelled from ship’s funnels, the aircraft is fitted with gas sensors and cameras that cover both optical and infrared spectral ranges.

The Spanish program is the first time that monitoring has been carried out beyond the emission control areas of Northern Europe. Danish and French authorities have worked with EMSA in the past on similar test programs to monitor emissions.

Remotely piloted aircraft system services are offered free of charge to all EU Member States by EMSA. They were developed to assist maritime surveillance and ship emission control operations and can operate in all seas surrounding the European Union. RPAS services can support traditional Coast Guard functions, including search and rescue and pollution prevention and response. EMSA plans to further expand its RPAS program in 2022.

‘What Barcelona is this?’: Spanish newspapers lament Ronald Koeman’s men ” appalling ‘performance in home draw against Granada … as Catalan giants accused of’ giving up ‘ their famous style based on possession

  • Barcelona saved a point against Granada thanks to Ronald Araujo’s header
  • The Uruguayan equalized in the 90th minute after Domingos Duarte’s opener
  • Boss Ronald Koeman was forced to defend the Catalan squad’s direct style of play
  • But Spanish newspapers criticized the approach and the Monday night posting











The Spanish press criticized Barcelona’s “appalling” performance and tactical style in their draw against Granada at Camp Nou, which increased the pressure on the boss under the late Ronald Koeman.

The Catalan giants needed a 90th-minute equalizer from defender Ronaldo Araujo to save a point at home after Domingos Duarte gave the Andalusian side the lead in two minutes.

The result was not the only aspect of Barcelona’s performance to come under criticism, with Koeman having to defend his side’s straightforward style of play, which saw center-back Gerard Pique playing past Luuk de Jong.

‘What Barcelona are they?’: MARCA criticizes Barcelona’s ‘appalling’ performance at Camp Nou

It was a marked difference from the possession-based style that was associated with the club, and MARCA in particular was stunned by the tactics employed by the boss under the late Koeman.

MARCA ran with the headline: “What Barcelona is this?”, Calling their display “appalling”.

They also accused Barcelona of “abandoning” their traditional dominant possession-based style of play which has brought the club so much success.

Catalan newspaper SPORT published a slightly more positive headline, praising the performance of center-back Araujo, calling him a “hero” and “key man of the night”.

The Uruguayan hailed 17-year-old midfielder center Gavi for saving the Catalan side from an “embarrassing” defeat, but they also lamented Koeman admitting that “their tiki-taka days are over”.

Equally worrying was the fact that Barcelona once again “demonstrated their helplessness and lack of resources” against Granada.

The Dutchman is coming under increasing pressure as a manager, however, with ex-midfielder Xavi, Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Conte and ex-Derby boss Phillip Cocu being linked at work by reports in Spain.

But when asked how he thought the outcome might affect his chances of staying in the job, Koeman said, “I’m not going to talk about my future anymore.”

He also suggested that with the players he has, it’s impossible to play other than the more direct approach they took on Monday night.

The draw increased the pressure on Ronald Koeman, who defended his squad's straightforward style

“If you see the squad roster today, do you really think we can play tiki-taki (sic)?” He told reporters.

“Barca are not Barca eight years ago. We play Barca style but we don’t have the speed in the wide areas because we have [Philippe] Coutinho who cuts inside and [Yusuf] Demir who does not reach the signature very much.

‘When Ansu Fati and [Ousmane] Dembele will come back so we will be different but they are not in good shape so we have to find alternatives.

Barcelona now sit seventh in La Liga, two points behind Real Sociedad, fourth and five behind leaders Real Madrid.

Koeman’s men will now be looking for their first win since winning Getafe at the end of last month when they visit Cadiz next Thursday.

LA LAGUNA, Spain (AP) – Giant lava rivers tumbled slowly but relentlessly towards the sea on Monday after a volcano erupted on a Spanish island off northwest Africa, with rapid evacuations helping to avoid victims.

Long fingers of fiery red lava slid down the hills with white smoke billowing from their leading edges as they engulfed homes, gardens and swimming pools in a trail of destruction across the verdant countryside.

An incessant roar, like that of a plane passing overhead, came from the nearby ridge of Cumbre Vieja where the eruption occurred on Sunday afternoon when two cracks began to spew bright red magma into the air and set the rivers of glowing lava in motion.

Scientists had been monitoring the island of Palma region in the volcanic Canary Islands in recent days amid thousands of earthquakes, mostly of low intensity, and authorities quickly evacuated around 5,500 people.

The lava destroyed more than 100 houses on the hillsides. One of them belonged to the German couple Matthias and Anette Fuchs, aged 65 and 64 respectively.

They said they fell in love with the house as soon as they first saw it. Built in the traditional island architectural style using volcanic material from previous eruptions, the couple had improved it for nearly four decades.

“It was a special place, we saw it once and we fell in love,” Anette Fuchs told The Associated Press, recounting how the couple had organized big dinners for visiting friends and relatives. “It was a paradise.”

The lava was moving at 700 meters (2,300 feet) per hour, according to the Canary Islands Institute of Volcanology. Officials said they expected it to reach the Atlantic Ocean at sunset, where it could cause explosions and produce clouds of acid vapor. Scientists monitoring the lava measured it at over 1000 C (over 1800 F).

Authorities in La Palma, where people live largely from agriculture, told residents of the large areas where volcanic ash was falling to stay indoors with their doors and windows closed.

Scientists say the lava flows could last for weeks or months, but the immediate danger to local people seemed to have passed.

Daniel Álvarez, owner of a bar in Las Manchas, one of the villages closest to the volcano, was evacuated with his family on Sunday and was staying at El Fuerte military barracks with some 300 other evacuees. He didn’t know if the lava had consumed his house.

“For now,” he said, “it looks like it’s safe, but the lava opens up many paths. We have our whole life inside (our house). We would have to start over. “

Canary Islands head of government Ángel Víctor Torres said authorities no longer expected further eruptions, adding that air traffic in the region was unaffected.

“There will be considerable property damage,” Torres told SER radio. “We hope there will be no bodily harm.”

On Monday evening, lava began to flow from a new fissure that opened up on the volcano following an earthquake that rocked the ridges of Cumbre Vieja, the Institute of Volcanology of the Canary Islands. The authorities then ordered the evacuation of another neighborhood and closed some roads. It was not immediately clear how many people were involved in the new evacuation.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez visited the affected area on Monday after delaying his trip to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly.

He praised the scientists for monitoring the eruption, saying their work was “fundamental” to avoiding casualties, and pledged his government would help local people rebuild their lives.

The Canary Islands Institute of Volcanology reported the initial eruption shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday near the southern end of the island, which lasted in 1971.

A magnitude 4.2 earthquake was recorded before the eruption, which took place in an area known as Cabeza de Vaca on the western slope as the ridge descends towards the coast.

La Palma, with a population of 85,000, is one of the eight Canary Islands. At their closest point, the islands are 100 kilometers (60 miles) from Morocco.

La Palma’s last eruption 50 years ago lasted just over three weeks. The last eruption on all of the Canary Islands occurred underwater off the coast of El Hierro Island in 2011. It lasted for five months.

Thousands of American Indians gathered last week in an outdoor tent to celebrate the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi in Aurora.

The festival, which began on September 10 and ends on Tuesday, honors the birth of Lord Ganesh, known as “Remover of Obstacles” and “Lord of New Beginnings” in Hindu tradition. The deity is represented as a human with the head of an elephant.

A three-day celebration was organized by the nonprofit Fox Valley Ganesh Utsav Samithi. It included prayer services, performances for young people and a proclamation by the mayor of Aurora, Richard Irvin, in honor of the holiday.

“It’s pretty big here,” said alderman for Aurora Shweta Baid, 45, the first American Indian elected to city council. “Last year, due to COVID, no one was able to meet.”

More than 4,000 people from across the Chicago suburban area attended this year’s festival, organizers said.

Aurora is home to two Hindu temples, and the American Indians are one of the fastest growing ethnic communities. The community will celebrate two more Hindu festivals – Navaratri and Diwali – in October and November, Baid said.

Mexican Independence Day

Aurora and Elgin celebrated Mexican Independence Day, celebrated on September 16, with special ceremonies last week.

This day commemorates the moment Father Hidalgo, priest and leader, called for the liberation of Mexico from Spain in September 1810.

Elgin held his second annual festive car parade on Saturday. A caravan of 100 vehicles decorated with Mexican flags marched through the streets of the city honking their horns and blaring music as spectators waved flags along the parade route.

Aurora held its first Mexican flag raising ceremony on Thursday to mark the occasion and kick off the Hispanic Heritage Month festivities. The second largest city in the state is home to a large Mexican community.

Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin and Alderman Juany Garza, Alderman Emmanuel Llamas and Deputy Mayor Guillermo Trujillo – all Mexican-Americans – hosted the ceremony at the North Island Center in the heart of downtown.

The Mexican flag was hoisted on a stick next to the American flag.

Garza, an entrepreneur, represented the city’s predominantly Latin Quarter 2 for 16 years. She founded the Aurora Hispanic Pioneers Council.

Llamas, a 34-year-old lawyer, is the city’s youngest city councilor. He was born and raised in Ward 1, which he now runs.

Trujillo was an investigator for 30 years with the Aurora Police Department before becoming the city’s first Latino deputy mayor.

Over a dozen events are part of Aurora Avanzando (Aurora Forward) to mark Hispanic Heritage Month. For a list, visit aurora-il.org/AuroraAvanzando.

Support for refugees

Suburban residents can browse a collection of handmade clothing sewn by local refugee women available for sale between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 25 at the ICNA Relief Refugee Resource Center, 1793 Bloomingdale Road, Glendale Heights.

Items include crochet hats, blankets, pillow cases, tunic tops, aprons, pot holders, masks and decorative doilies.

Proceeds will be donated to ICNA Relief’s refugee empowerment program.

“This is an important way to support the hard work that refugee women do (…) refugee women as seamstresses.

Racial equity

Cook County has adopted a new racial equity policy and action plan.

It establishes a framework for advancing and promoting inclusion in all aspects of government and social services. The plan calls for the provision of racial equity training to county employees and access to services for one in five residents who speak a language other than English.

“We have encouraged our staff to use a racial equity lens with every policy and program, including our COVID-19 recovery initiatives,” Cook County Council Chairman Toni Preckwinkle said at an event to kick off the county’s third annual Racial Equity Week on September 13. to 17.

All residents of the county must have access to affordable housing, good jobs, healthy food, convenient public transportation, quality health care and green spaces, she added.

“This means that we cannot just expand access to public transport, if this access is only improved for able-bodied residents,” said Preckwinkle. “We cannot provide rent assistance if we only provide it to people with immigration papers. We cannot impact maternal and child mortality without addressing the fact that black women are at least three times more likely than white women to die as a result of pregnancy. “

Preckwinkle launched several episodes of “Talk with Toni” throughout the week on county cable and YouTube channels. To view the Equity Week programs, visit Facebook.com/PresidentPreckwinkle.

Latinos in the trades

A coalition launched last week aims to increase Latin American representation in the construction industry and trades.

The Coalition of Elected and Appointed Illinois Latino Officials will also focus on promoting Latinos in business and labor markets, funding infrastructure projects, removing barriers to construction careers and raising awareness. of the Latin American community.

Illinois’ Latin American population grew 15%, from 2 million in 2010 to 2.3 million in 2020, according to census data.

“It is now the second largest demographic in the state,” said Eira Corral Sepúlveda, commissioner of the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Water Harvesting District and chair of the coalition’s Equity in Construction Jobs committee. “We are not only asking for fairness, but also for parity in obtaining resources and services from government agencies across the state.”

Sepúlveda is the first Latina elected to the MWRD board of directors and the youngest and first commissioner of the northwestern suburbs.

She led a group of Latino elected officials on a tour of Wheeling High School’s career development programs on Friday. Such programs play an important role in creating inclusive career paths to the trades, Sepúlveda said.

Brad Pitt gave Paula Yates a ring as a “token of his infatuation”

American actor Brad Pitt is said to have been infatuated with late television personality Paula Yates.

Gerry Agar Fenell, a friend and former PR of Yates, said the Fight Club The star was “infatuated” with her and the two had a “flirtatious” relationship.

“Paula said Brad gave her the ring as a ‘mark of his infatuation’.” She told me there had been a lot of flirtation and he told her he loved her. I only remember Paula laughing about their time together, ”Fennell told the Daily Mail.

Yates died 21 years ago at the age of 41 from a drug overdose. One of the last people to see her life before her untimely death was singer Lily Allen, who was 15 at the time.

Allen referred to the reunion in his 2018 biography, My Thoughts Exactly, and said: “[The restaurant was] where everyone groovy in the media would meet to exchange gossip and network over lunch, drink and dinner. “

The singer said Yates “ate what was going to be one of her last meals – certainly her last in public – before she overdosed on heroin.”

“She was joined at lunch by this guy we all knew to be a heroin trafficker. They had left together. It was the saddest sight,” she added.

the week at AMLO press conferences https://fyl-unex.com/the-week-at-amlo-press-conferences/ https://fyl-unex.com/the-week-at-amlo-press-conferences/#respond Sat, 18 Sep 2021 15:22:05 +0000 https://fyl-unex.com/the-week-at-amlo-press-conferences/ Processions were planned for a week of reflection.

Processions were planned for a week of reflection. El Grito’s celebration on Wednesday would mark the 200th anniversary of Mexico’s independence.

El Grito, meaning the cry or the cry, had sparked the independence movement on September 15, 1810 when Miguel Hidalgo, a priest from Dolores, Guanajuato, ordered the bells to ring and urged the people to rise up against their oppressors and to reclaim their land with the cry “Long live Mexico!” On August 24, 1821, Spain finally ended so-called “New Spain” and recognized its independence with the Treaty of Cordoba.

On Monday

Patriotism week had arrived, the president announced. Monday would commemorate the defense of Chapultepec Castle by the “heroic children” who fought the American aggressors in 1847. Wednesday was “El Grito” and the presidential raffle; Thursday promised a flypast; Friday a meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac); and on Sunday, flags would fly at half mast for the victims of the 1985 earthquake.

A journalist had his first dibs on Friday. Why, she asked, were Mexicans living abroad not able to exercise their right to vote? The National Electoral Institute, she said, appears to be an “enemy of democracy”.

“If you analyze how much has been spent to achieve this goal [facilitating voting abroad] and what were the results, we see that there has been no progress, very few people [living abroad] participate ”, declared the president, before entrusting the task to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard.

Later in the conference, the president claimed that today’s corruption can be attributed to conquest. “The treasure of Moctezuma [the fallen, last Aztec ruler] kept shrinking because it was being stolen from the so-called conquest… when it was divided, there was almost nothing left… those at the top had kept most of the treasure.

AMLO offered reporters his plans for Oaxaca: on Sunday he would travel to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and give the morning press conference from the southern state on Monday. However, he lamented that the weather would not allow him to make it to the Mixes, an indigenous group.

Tuesday

AMLO the scammer arrived on Tuesday: lottery tickets “cost 250 pesos, but it’s a stadium box, apartments, houses… and you have to trust your luck”.

COVID supremo Hugo López-Gatell said the number of cases was declining in all states and for the sixth week in a row the number of hospitals was down. Despite the reopening of schools, there has been no increase in cases among young people, he said. Education Minister Delfina Gómez Álvarez announced a slight improvement in school attendance, with just over half of the students returning to class.

Security Minister Rosa Icelanda Rodríguez smiled on Tuesday.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard explained the results of the high-level conference in Washington, DC: there would be bilateral coordination on supply chains and convergence on health regulations, but there had not been big announcement on migration.

Interior Minister Adán Augusto López provided an update on the release of prisoners due to torture, old age and a few other circumstances, which did not include those accused or convicted of more serious crimes . As of Wednesday 682 prisoners would be released and 4,233 cases were under review. However, the decree only covered the 7.4% of prisoners who are in federal prisons.

The president was standing. He said he wanted to appoint the governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz, as Mexican ambassador to Spain. Ordaz belongs to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

“They [PRI] was very annoyed, ”said AMLO of the party’s reaction to one of their own lining up with rival Morena.

He later announced that border municipalities would complete their second doses of the COVID vaccine on Tuesday and that he would meet with new United States Ambassador Ken Salazar soon.

Wednesday

The Mexican public had to be patient, for which it is famous, to hear the president because there was no press conference in the morning. But, as tradition dictates, he appeared from his balcony late in the evening to recite the Grito in honor of the heroes of the independence movement. Due to sanitary restrictions, central Mexico City zocalo the place under him was largely empty.

“Mexicans!”

“Long live independence!

“Long live Miguel Hidalgo and Costilla!

“Long live José María Morelos and Pavón!

“Long live Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez!

A moment of happiness with the journalists.
A moment of happiness with the journalists.

“Long live Ignacio Allende!

“Long live Leona Vicario! “

“Long live Vicente Guerrero! “

Long live the nameless heroes! “

“Long live justice!

“Long live equality!

“Long live democracy!

“Long live honesty! “

“Long live our autonomy!

“Long live universal brotherhood!

“Long live the love for your neighbor!

Long live the pre-Hispanic cultures!

“Long live Mexico! “

“Long live Mexico! “

“Long live Mexico! “

Thursday

Once again, the morning press conference was interrupted. The president waited for the military flypast later today to speak publicly.

He began by introducing his guest “His Excellency Mr. Miguel-Díaz-Canel, President of the Republic of Cuba”, then explained why El Grito is more symbolically important than when Spain finally ceded power. “We Mexicans care more about the initiator, the priest [Miguel] Hidalgo, that [Agustín de] Iturbide, the consumer, for the priest was a defender of the people and the royalist general represented the elite, those at the top, and was just looking to wear the imperial crown.

Priest Hidalgo did not mince his words: AMLO read a letter he had sent to a Spanish general. “‘The stream [independence] The movement is big and much more because it is about recovering the sacred rights granted by God to Mexicans, usurped by cruel, bastard and unjust conquerors ”, he declared.

As the president recounted, Hidalgo’s head found itself on a point for 10 years overlooking the main square of Guanajuato, kept company by the revolutionary heroes Ignacio Allende, Juan Aldama and Dolores Jiménez y Muro, whose heads adorned the other three corners of the Alhóndiga de Granaditas.

After so much discussion of the colonial struggle, AMLO turned his attention back to Cuba. “The Cuban people deserve the price of dignity… the government that I represent respectfully calls on the American government to lift the blockade against Cuba, because no state has the right to subjugate another people, another country. We must remember what George Washington said: “Nations should not profit from the misfortune of other peoples. “

“It is a time of fraternity and not of confrontation… Long live the independence of Mexico! Long live the independence of Cuba!

Friday

AMLO cut its morning press conference short to participate in a virtual climate conference hosted by US President Joe Biden.

Later that day it was busy with the Celac (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) conference, a political bloc and regional forum seen as an alternative to the often ridiculed Organization of American States, whose headquarters is in Washington, DC

Leaders and dignitaries joined him in Mexico to discuss issues primarily affecting Spanish-speaking America. The only other major country with a different language, Brazil, left the organization in 2020.

Among the likely topics of discussion were the US trade embargo on Cuba, the promotion of Celac over the OAS, and a pan-Latin American space program.

Shot under the radar to amplify the impact closer to theatrical release, said producer Adrián Guerra, “Love Gets a Room” is produced and funded by Guerra’s Nostromo Pictures, with Lionsgate International handling international rights and CAA representing US rights. Top Spanish independent A Contracorriente Films will release the film in theaters in Spain at the end of the year.

More Variety

Written by German bestselling writer David Safier (“Bad Karma”, “28 Days”) and Cortés, the film captures a group of actors as they perform in the heart of the Warsaw Ghetto, against a backdrop of life or death on a dilapidated stage, “Love Gets a Room”, an actual musical written by playwright Jerzy Jurandot, a Polish Jew, and performed by a group of actors in the winter of 1942 at the Femina Theater in Warsaw.

“Safier discovered the existence of the original work and wanted to honor this beautiful achievement made by a group of actors now forgotten in the midst of darkness,” Guerra said. Variety.

The text of the play depicted in the film is the original, as it was performed in 1942. The lyrics of the songs have survived, the music for the film being composed in the musical theater tradition of the time. All songs were shot live and the sound of the original takes was used, without playback.

Told in real time – like Rodrigo Cortés’ famous “Buried” – “Love Gets a Room” “takes the audience on a moving adventure to discover a side of the story never told before in a film,” said Guerra.

It represents “all kinds of artists (actors, musicians, writers) who still perform, under the most unpleasant circumstances, only to save their sanity, to stir up the art they love deeply, to engage in a civilizing exchange and affirming humanity, ”he added.

“Love Gets a Room” captures Cortés on a roll, after the publication of his second novel, “The Extraordinary Years”, written in the great Spanish tradition of the absurd that has become one of the unexpected literary successes this summer in Spain .

The Spanish government decided last Tuesday in the Council of Ministers to grant the President of Colombia, Iván Duque, the Grand Cross of Isabella the Catholic, the second most important decoration of the Order of King Felipe VI.

The news broke this Thursday and caused a stir, although it was a protocol tradition, since all Colombian presidents have been distinguished either with the Necklace, the highest distinction of this Order, or with the Grand Cross. This is what happened with Álvaro Uribe (2005) and Juan Manuel Santos (2015).

This concession led to the rejection of various sectors. One of them was that of United We Can (UP), a minority partner of the government led by Socialist Pedro Sánchez, whose ministers voted en bloc against this measure, according to the Spanish press.

Last Sunday, a demonstration was held against the visit of Duque in which the head of the international area of ​​Podemos and MEP, Idoia Villanueva, argued that his training was contrary to the awarding of “no medals of an order from the king to the one who imposed the cloak of impunity as they murdered their people“.

The Colombian president is held responsible for the repression protests that began in April as part of the national strike and the disproportionate use of force which left 51 dead, more than a thousand injured and dozens of citizens missing.

Rejection of the Colombian diaspora

Social movements rejected the announcement of the prize, recalling the dead and injured from two months of protests and mobilizations, which began in April, following clashes with public forces.

Part of the Colombian community abroad has also expressed its refusal to see Duque receive this recognition. Protests have already taken place around the Madrid Book Fair, whose organization has been controversial in an edition, number 80, which has Colombia as a guest country.

Colombian journalists and writers have assured that the Colombian ambassador in Madrid, Luis Guillermo Plata, had banned important literary figures because of their political positions and their criticism of Duque’s management.

This was declared a few days ago by Winston Manrique Sabogal, a Colombian journalist who writes for the Spanish magazine W Magazín and who published an article in which he denounced that recognized figures of letters were excluded from participation in the literary encounter.

Laura Restrepo, Piedad Bonnett, Héctor Abad Faciolince, Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Pablo Montoya or Pilar Quintana are among the writers who were not invited to participate by the Duque executive. The Vice-President of Colombia, Marta Lucía Ramírez, argued that “it was considered that they they no longer needed a presentation in societybecause they already know them well enough. “The controversy had worsened previously when the Colombian ambassador had maintained that the list of writers had been drawn up so that the presence of his country at the Spanish event was writersneutral “.

Tour of Spain and the USA.

Iván Duque’s visit to Spain began this Thursday morning, while he was received by Felipe VI in the Zarzuela Palace. Subsequently he has meeting with President Pedro Sánchez in Moncloa and, at noon, he attended a lunch in his honor offered by the Spanish monarchs.

The Colombian president’s Friday agenda includes a commercial act organized by ICEX, the public company responsible for promoting the internationalization of Spanish companies, in collaboration with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and the Spanish Confederation of Commercial Organizations (CEOE) in collaboration with the Colombian Embassy in Spain, ProColombia and House of America.

In the afternoon, Duque plans to go to the Madrid Book Fair. At first it was assumed that he wanted to present his book on this stage, although the president denied this version in an interview with RCN Radio.

At the weekend, the Colombian president will visit the US capital, Washington, where his first meeting with President Joe Biden.

Subsequently, he plans to attend between September 20 and 23 at the 76th United Nations General Assembly, where he will report on progress made in the implementation of the Peace Agreement.

Only 2000 years ago, when we happily coexisted together in Hispania, the most remote province of the Roman Empire, in the Iberian Peninsula, we could find answers to our current conflicts over race, religion, political conflicts. and other forms of fear.

Fear of the other, fear of the next pandemic, or fear of fears: death.

The Hispanic tradition of the world, no less intolerant than the Anglosaxone, has offered us moments of lucidity that it may be useful to remember today, as we argue again in our public discourse, as we have again made our national leaders this weekend in their televised speeches, using vague but intense words such as “extremism”, “terrorism” and “enmity”.

In the small hill where the Roman city of Toletum was built before the year 59 BC. centuries ago our ancestors found a way to coexist here in a small town in central Spain, today known as Toledo, “the city of three cultures”, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived and worked together, thrived and probably mingled.

Sephardic Jews, those who lived for centuries in Spain, had the right to practice their faith in their own synagogue, as did representatives of the Muslim colony that occupied Spain for 700 years.

While the Christians, who then held political power, recognized the right of the other 2 “People of the Book” to practice their religion without fear of persecution.

Jews, Muslims and Christians, “the three cultures”, were all citizens of the Roman Empire and then of the new nation called Spain, all speaking the same lingua franca which, from Latin, evolved in their local practice to be “Castellano Or “Espanol”.

Jews, Muslims and Christians, “the three cultures”, were all citizens of the Roman Empire and then of the new nation called Spain, all speaking the same lingua franca which, from Latin, evolved in their local practice to be “Castellano Or “Espanol”.

The new nation evolved into the new world empire – after the conquest of America – and the exuberance of a newly found power forced the Jews to convert to Christianity, or else to leave the earth, and the Muslims. to leave the peninsula once and for all, unless you are already married in a Christian family.

The Peninsula, however, must have been for centuries an example of exemplary coexistence and sometimes of interracial and interreligious mixing.

Israelis and Palestinians recognized this in the 20th century when they repeatedly chose Madrid, the capital of Spain, as the site of their negotiations.

The spirit that is at the origin of Hispanic culture – originally made up of tribes clashing from Castile to Aragon, from Extremadura to Catalonia, not to mention the hordes of barbarians who invade the peninsula from the north when the Roman Empire collapses — is an example of culture and ethnic mix, possible economic alliances between enemies and possible political coexistence between innate rivals.

When the United States of America has been deeply imbued with the Hispanic experience, it is up to us to trace this forgotten history and suggest a line of thought, especially when the reasons for our rivalries in our modern world remain unclear. pretty much the same.

September 11 can never happen again, we say with certainty as Americans of Latin American descent.

September 11 can never happen again, we say with certainty as Americans of Latin American descent.

We must honor the 3,000 Americans, many of Hispanic descent, who perished that day in an act of historic absurdity.

May their ultimate sacrifice be a permanent reminder that in our western civilization, such as right now in Toledo, Spain, we can find ways to avoid hatred based on religion, race and language and that these differences can new to be overcome, as we did in the past, or even more effectively today where we are inevitably more interconnected or we know each other better, as vulnerable and fearful as we can be.

In this world where information about our differences and commonalities is readily available in our fingerprints, and we should deliberately make it part of our college curricula starting in elementary school so that our new generations learn it, we don’t have no excuse for continuing to fuel our political discourse with words such as “extremism” and “terrorism” to instill fear for the other, the one who looks and sounds different from us.

Let us drop those words and seek to meet our adversaries with a new semantics of tolerance, understanding and peace, fully honoring the Hispanic heritage of our new American nation.

Barcelona have landed players left, right and center – including Lionel Messi – and are still hampered by more than £ 1billion in debt. Where are they going from here?

Some eight senior players have left Camp Nou amid a clearance sale to bring the club’s payroll back to something loosely akin to La Liga’s new rules on financial prudence. None of those departures will be felt as much as Messi, who even himself didn’t expect to move on until the morning of the announcement.

That the club’s greatest player leaves this way, in tears during a hastily called press briefing to justify the club’s decision, says a lot about his decline.

Where once stood an institution that redefined the philosophy of modern football under Pep Guardiola, who, even with his waning influence, was still content to throw £ 100million + at each of Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann in recent years, now sits a club accused even by its new president of “disastrous mismanagement” under his predecessor, and still strives to stay on the right side of crippling financial borders.

Returning boss Joan Laporta was the man who first employed Guardiola, who oversaw Barcelona’s rise to the top of European football with Messi in the lead. When he took over the presidency last year, his job this time was to pick up the pieces of Josep Maria Bartomeu’s disastrous six-year reign, following his sudden resignation.

He immediately set out to mount an expectation-leveling exercise, once which proved painful for the club and its fans, and shows little sign of slowing down at the moment with the club in debt well over £ 1bn. sterling.

“The basis of everything is the disastrous handling of the previous administration which we inherited,” he said at Messi’s uncomfortable press conference in early August.

A little over four years ago, Barça could field a trio made up of Neymar, Messi and Luis Suarez. Now, the bulk of their advanced options consist of Sevilla player Luuk de Jong, aging Sergio Aguero, former Middlesbrough striker Martin Braithwaite and Memphis Depay.

Many who retained their Camp Nou roles did so with further reduced terms to keep the club financially viable, to the point where La Liga only allowed Aguero to sign up after the window was closed. transfer, once Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba entered into smaller contracts to further reduce the payroll.

New La Liga rules state that clubs can spend 70% of their income on salaries. With Messi, Barca would have spent 110%, even without him the figure rose to 95% in early August. Griezmann, Junior Firpo, Emerson Royal, Ilaix Moriba, Jean-Clair Todibo, Miralem Pjanic and Francisco Trincao followed Messi and generated around € 130m (£ 111.5m) in sales.

What happened to Barca’s first-choice eleven in five years?

RB Roberto Destination
CB Umtiti Garcia
CB Prick Prick
KG Alba Alba

CM Busquets Pedro
RW Messi Aguero
ST Suárez De Jong
LW Neymar To pay

The problem isn’t just the huge transfer fees paid – it’s the quality of the players who have arrived, or certainly their suitability. Coutinho, Dembele and Griezmann, Barcelona’s three most expensive signings for a combined total of around £ 350million, have all failed. “Every year we were a little worse,” longtime center-back Gerard Pique said last year. Absolutely – finishing La Liga last season in third was their lowest result since 2008.

Time for prudence

In 2018, Barcelona became the first professional sports club to post annual revenues in excess of $ 1 billion (£ 723 million). Three years later and forced to sell for what he can get, Barca suffered a loss of € 80million (£ 68.6million) to Griezmann in just two years. The pandemic obviously played its part, but if a club weren’t ready for a rainy day, they were at the top of the list.

“The days of spending like they’ve done in recent years are over,” journalist Carles Ruiperez, who wrote about Barca’s struggles for the Catalan newspaper. La Vanguardia, Recount Air sports. “There is a phrase the club sums up the situation with: Sports policy is subordinate to economic policy until it becomes sustainable again. Obviously, they know the team is less powerful than last year. “

Barcelona’s summer affairs have reportedly enraged fans in the past, but in this new era of austerity, there is patience to allow Laporta and his board to rebuild the club’s badly damaged foundations.

Things can get even worse before they get better. Last month, Laporta announced that Barcelona’s debts stood at 1.35 billion euros (£ 1.16 billion), in part due to years of lavish spending under Bartomeu, in part due to pandemic and in part at the cost of keeping Lionel Messi at Camp Nou for most of his career.

“I think there will probably be more cost cuts to come,” said Spain football expert Terry Gibson. Air sports. “I think Barcelona were looking for a better Atletico Madrid deal for Griezmann, which is why it happened so late, and Sevilla are paying part of De Jong’s salary to play for Barcelona. It shows to how much things have changed. “

The brightest prospects that remain, Pedri and Frenkie de Jong, are strongly linked with leaving Camp Nou in the near future. No one knows for sure how long the era of austerity will last, but Laporta’s public estimate is that it will continue for some time to come.

“I think in a few years the club’s economy will be healthy. It’s a big challenge but we are able to overcome it,” he said last month.

Rebuild from the inside

How does Barcelona go about rebuilding itself? On top of the cut in costs, Laporta and manager Ronald Koeman still have one club to manage, and seven points from their first three games, given the financial and emotional turmoil surrounding everything, is a decent return to the start of the news. season.

What will be a long-term restoration is being undertaken in the traditional Barca way, albeit under less than ideal circumstances – through La Masia, their world-renowned academy. Earlier this month, 18-year-old graduate Ansu Fati inherited Messi’s famous number 10 shirt just 41 appearances in his Barcelona career and 10 months since his last, with a knee injury last November still keeping the ‘attacking out of action.

Elsewhere, 18-year-old midfielder Pedri has already become a regular at Spain, as it has been suggested that manager Koeman’s contract will only be renewed if Riqui Puig has more playing time in the middle of ground.

“I think if they take this path that they are and Koeman embraces it, then I think the supporters will be patient,” Gibson said. “It’s a long tradition for Barcelona to produce their own players, as well as a certain type of player at La Masia.

“The fans won’t blame Ronald Koeman, they won’t blame Joan Laporta, the blame was firmly on the previous regime, and everyone can see their problems.

Spanish newspaper Sport claims Ronald Koeman considers Nico Gonzalez to be "a replacement for Sergio Busquets"

“We saw two teenage substitutes come in last week, Nico Gonzalez, who is a replica of Sergio Busquets, Gavi, who is 17, he came to make his debut. There is obviously Ansu Fati and Pedri, as well as Ronald Araujo , who is in his early 20s and is an excellent center-back.

“But it makes you realize they were far from Lionel Messi. It was wishful thinking. It was Joan Laporta’s dream to try and imagine they could keep him.”

No more wishful thinking at Camp Nou, reality has indeed bitten. Can Barcelona regain its former glory? Of course, but not by throwing money at the problem this time. “We must not try to win La Liga and the Champions League every year,” a club official told Financial Time.

This time, three years ago, Barca were favorites to win the continental competition but enter this year’s tournament as a 20/1 underdog. They seem likely to be successful in lowering their expectations – but after a summer of chaos and more likely to follow along, not necessarily by choice.
