The list is completed by Andrés, Pedrosa, Wu Lei, Iturraspe, Ferreyra, Darder, Calleri, Diego López, Melendo, David López, Javi López, Dídac, Cabrera, Bernardo, Marc Roca, Embarba, Calero and Víctor Gómez. There are eight headlines on Thursday, and the only exceptions are Naldo, the sanctioned Víctor Sánchez and Vargas himself.The staff has left this afternoon towards Valladolid and would arrive early in the evening. The meeting will be this Sunday at 16:00. The parakeets hope to maintain their good dynamics away from home. With Abelardo they already won in Vila-Real and drew against Sevilla. Abelardo Fernández had already warned two hours before giving the list of summoned that Raúl de Tomás had few options to go to Valladolid. His return to the group on Friday was not as good as expected, and the Madrid striker failed to finish the session with good feelings. For this reason, he does not finally travel to Valladolid. His absence and that of Matías Vargas, surprise, is the most prominent of a list of 18.Nor will Víctor Sánchez be sanctioned for his expulsion the previous week in Seville. From that encounter, David López appears as high. The midfielder, who already played for less than half an hour at Molineux Stadium against Wolverhampton on Thursday, will return directly to the starting team to form midfield alongside Marc Roca.
Confined to his home in Gijón with his partner and their two children, Abelardo Fernández showed his closest side this Sunday, his feelings about a pandemic of which the Espanyol squad has not been oblivious, to which he commands from the bench. Speaking to ‘Playtime’ (Cope), the parakeet trainer revealed that there have not been six positives in COVID-19, as officially reported, if not more.“At Espanyol we have had ten cases, eight from players and two from the coaching staff who have had coronaviruses“The technician related quite naturally. For this reason, he reflected shamelessly: “We spent two days together, living together (in Navata, Girona). Y they say that maybe we have been able to pass several asymptomatic. I have not seen my parents or my grandmother (89 years old) with fear of being able to infect them ”, she confessed.On the outcome of LaLiga, with Espanyol bottom before the break, the coach admitted that “selfishly I would ask that it be useless. But what I want is to play. Despite the fact that in our situation it would be advantageous to say that there is no more play and that Espanyol did not descend, we all want to play. But I don’t think anything about it because the situation is so harsh that what we should least care about is soccer, ”he added. He also recalled that “if the game is played again, with some guarantees, that the health of the players is not at risk. It is going to be a strange thing, the players are training at home, most of them live in an apartment ”.Abelardo also explained that this Sunday he dedicated it “to calling the players one by one. I still have one left and I’ll call tomorrow. Every Monday we meet by videoconference players and coaching staff, and other twice a week I meet with the technical staff, “he specified.In his days of confinement, he commented that he was watching “quite a lot of football, from Espanyol, this weekend I have swallowed the fourth season of ‘La casa de papel’ and i’m reading me a book by John Grisham, ‘The inheritance’, because I really like this author. And I’m enjoying my children, doing house chores… A little bit of everything ”, he listed.Abelardo related how, after suspending his stay in Navata, He traveled by road to Gijón with Tomás Hervás and Iñaki Tejada. “We went by car, not to take the plane because of the risk of getting infected. I came with the clothes for the weekend because on Monday we were going to train in theory, ”he assured.“What you are least thinking about right now is soccer,” he said. And he stated: “I, who am not much to give hugs to friends, or to say I love you to my father or my mother, now I want to do it. I really value the day, feel it, be lucky to continue here. ”

WESTERN BUREAU:Montego Bay United FC captain Dwayne Ambusley netted his first goal for almost three seasons and only his second goal for the club, as they eased past Tivoli Gardens FC 2-0 in Monday night’s Red Stripe Premier League football fixture at Montego Bay Sports Complex.Afterwards, he dedicated the victory to his daughter, Shanice, who was celebrating her birthday, noting that he had promised something special and the goal was a fitting gift.”I am delighted with the win because I kept my promise to my daughter to score tonight and get the win,” the midfielder said.”It is my first goal in about three years so it’s special on that account. But the most important thing is that we won tonight,” added Ambusley.The win lifted the former champions level to the top on 37 points with Portmore United and two clear of defending champions Arnett Gardens FC.Ambusley’s goal, which gave his team a 12th minute lead, was rather fortuitous, as his intended cross swerved away from Tivoli’s goalkeeper Edsel Scott and into the upper far corner of the goalgoalscoring formMercurial striker Dino Williams also continued his fine goalscoring form, when he scored in the 28th minute in a dominant first half of football from the home side, in front of a partisan crowd.Ambusley said they were determined to get the victory and heaped praise on Williams for his role in the team’s success so far this season.”We talked about it before the game that we needed to win this one and that Dino keeps scoring and it worked out that way. As team captain, I can’t ask for nothing more.”MoBay’s goalkeeper had a relatively quiet night between the posts, but was called to duty with a superb one-handed save to deny Jamoy Sibbles an equaliser at the 18th minute.Williams was netting his League-leading 14th goal for the season, but the hard-running striker was taken off in second half action because of a lingering hamstring problem.Tivoli’s coach, Christopher Bender, said his side’s struggle will have to be addressed with additional talent in the transfer window.”We are not playing with enough confidence at the moment and of course the team missed Junior Flemmings greatly. He brings a certain calmness to the team and that was lacking tonight,” Bender reasoned.”There still a way to go in this up and down season for us, but we’re hoping to get some wins and stay away from trouble,” he said.Tivoli, following their 10th loss this season, lie 10th in the 12-team standings and have a woeful defensive record, having shipped a league leading 28 goals in 19 matches.
Jamaican sport has reached a pinnacle of excellence which all Jamaicans have a collective responsibility to maintain and sustain.That was the message from Vice-Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, who was guest speaker at Friday night’s RJR Sports Foundation Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards Ceremony at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.”This extraordinary nation has made a most incredible contribution to sport,” Sir Hilary told the audience at the ceremony to honour Jamaica’s best in sport for 2015.Sir Hilary, who has an affinity to cricket in particular, noted that Jamaican sport history was unique in its style, quality, and performance, and its capacity to establish gender equality in the process.”Jamaica has done what many countries have aspired to do in many areas, but especially in sporting culture. This phenomenal achievement has been recognised and it has been respected,” he said.”There is a tradition of excellence in Jamaica, and this excellence has to be maintained and it has to be sustained. It must be institutionalised and it must be industrialised,” the Barbados-born educator said.some societies”If it is not institutionalised and industrialised it will be lost. I have seen how many nations have lost that excellence they have achieved,” Sir Hilary added.Sir Hilary used West Indies cricket as an example of a sport which had at one stage been excellent but later deteriorated dramatically.”In some societies it is considered a crime to lose that excellence,” he said.”This must never happen to Jamaican sport. I don’t wish to be writing in the closing stages of my career about the fall of Jamaican sport,” he added.”Every child in Jamaica must grow to see that things are designed in Jamaica, patented … exported from Jamaica, representing the legends in Jamaican sport. We are here to celebrate this monument. It must not fall.”Sir Hilary, who gained tenure at age 37, said the University of the West Indies had an important role to play in ensuring that Jamaican sport does not lose its value.”Research, innovation, bringing culture, manufacturing, finance, and technology together to sustain this incredible achievement,” he said.”We all have a responsibility. There has to be accountability. It must not be taken lightly. The efforts of generations must not be dashed overnight.”
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP):Sri Lanka cricket captain Angelo Mathews testified before police yesterday over a complaint that some national team players have been approached by a person with an offer to fix matches for money.Financial crimes investigators interviewed Mathews for several hours.”They wanted to know, as the captain, if I knew anything in detail. I answered all the questions,” Mathews said outside the police station. “We all want this game to be clean. Whoever has done something wrong, we want them brought before the court.”Mathews said the inquiry was only about the match-fixing approaches reported by players, not against the players themselves.”The cricketers felt really uncomfortable in the last few days because they were the ones who came forward and reported this to the ICC (International Cricket Council) and SLC,” Mathews said.The questioning came a day after Sri Lanka Cricket, the sport’s local governing body, suspended senior fast bowling coach Anusha Samaranayake for links with a practice bowler who is said to have brought the offers.Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath and opening batsman Kusal Perera reported the approaches to the authorities.Samaranayake, who has been working with the fast bowling academy for many years and helped in the development of many leading bowlers, has been suspended for two months pending an inquiry. The net bowler identified as Gayan Wishwajith has been banned from all cricket activities.- AP
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP):Serena Williams has never lost in the semi-finals of the Australian Open. Neither has Novak Djokovic.A key difference between the defending champions is that Williams beat the most-experienced and highest-ranked challenger in her half of the draw when she extended her streak to 18 consecutive wins against Maria Sharapova with a 6-4, 6-1 quarter-final victory yesterday.Williams said she wasn’t aware that she had won the Australian Open all six previous times she won her quarter-final match, “but that’s good”.”It’s not a stat that’s set in stone,” Williams said. “I still have to win two matches.”Five-time champion Djokovic, after beating No. 7 Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-2, 6-4, still has a daunting semi-final match against Roger Federer, who has won four of his 17 Grand Slam titles in Australia.Federer reached his 12th Australian Open semi-final, and 39th in a Grand Slam event, with a 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4 win over No. 6 Tomas Berdych. He hasn’t gone past the semi-finals at Melbourne Park since winning the title in 2010, but he’s a serious obstacle for Djokovic.They’re 22-all in career head-to-heads, with Djokovic catching up since usurping Federer in the rankings.TRICKY TIEBREAKERThe tiebreaker will be tricky. Djokovic lost only one of his 28 Grand Slam matches in 2015 – to Stan Wawrinka in the French Open final – and has won 37 of his last 38 matches at Melbourne Park, a run that includes four titles.He beat Federer in the Wimbledon and US Open finals last year, but Federer was back contending for titles.”Any round feels like finals because of the fact that we are, you know, big rivals. We played so many times against each other,” Djokovic said. “There’s a lot of tension. There’s a lot at stake. I’m expecting a great fight in two days.”In the women’s semi-finals, Williams will be facing fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, who beat No. 10 Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-3. Radwanska has won one of her previous four semi-finals at a major, but never won a Grand Slam title.Williams is 8-0 against Radwanska, including their meeting in the 2012 Wimbledon final.Williams said she couldn’t explain her 11-year domination of Sharapova – she has won 19 of their 21 meetings overall – except to say she rises to the big challenges.”When I play her, I know automatically I have to step up my game,” said Williams, a 21-time major winner. “I think that makes me play better.”
Carbohydrates Fats Nutrients and Food Groups Good health starts with a good diet. The body needs nutrients in order to prevent malnutrition, which is a state of unhealthy tissues and organs due to faulty or inadequate nutrition. Nutrients required by the body can be found in the six food groups. A healthy combination of foods from these six food groups will provide us with the energy we need to live, grow, and repair ourselves. The food groups are: Staples Legumes Fruits Vegetables Fats and oils Foods from animals Nutrients are the substances in foods that are absorbed into the blood and transported to cells throughout the body. These nutrients are as follows: This is a substance called cellulose, which is found in plants. Fibre is part of a healthy diet and is found in vegetables, whole grain foods, and other cereals. It cannot be digested by the body but, it prevents constipation and bowel cancer. It absorbs poisonous waste from digested foods. This is needed for cell building, blood making, and for muscle and tissue repair and restoration. Proteins cannot be stored and are mainly found in the food from animals group. Examples are meat, dairy products, poultry, eggs, seafood, and legumes (peas, nuts, beans). The body can also use protein as energy. Proteins This is a source of energy. Carbs are found in sweet and starchy foods, i.e., the staple food group. Active sports persons need 60 per cent of their diet to be from carbohydrates. Meals high in carbohydrates are known as high-energy foods, e.g., rice, pasta, yam, corn, cereals, etc. Carbohydrates are broken down by the body into glucose. Excess glucose is then stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles. The World Health Organisation describes health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of diseases or infirmity”. Good health starts with making good choices, which leads to good health habits. Physical Health deals with maintaining the condition of your body, which requires the following: – Eating balanced meals – Engaging in physical activity – Practising good hygiene – Getting enough rest – Avoiding alcohol, drugs and smoking Mental health is the way that you cope with the demands of daily life and involves the following: – The ability to handle stress effectively and to solve problems – Openness to new ideas and new ways of doing things – The ability to adjust to change. Social health is defined by the way one interacts with people. How well an individual gets along with others is important to one’s overall sense of well-being. All parts of your health are equally important to overall wellness. Sports involvement is an excellent means of achieving overall wellness. Fats are used as energy with a mixture of glycogen as it cannot be used on its own. The mixture depends on how intense the activity is and how long it will last. Fats are supplied from the fats and oils group and also from varying food from animals. It is also found in nuts and some plants. The wrong type of fats may lead to high cholesterol. fats are broken down into fatty acids and glycerol. Vitamins and Minerals Fibre Water This makes up 70 per cent of the body’s weight. It aids the digestive system. A lack of water could decrease the amount of food that is digested, resulting in fewer nutrients reaching the cells. Eight glasses of water must be consumed daily to replace water lost through sweating, urination, and breathing. The seven important nutrients must be part of the diet in the right proportions to make it balanced. Next Week: Foods for Health and Athletic Performance/ Eating Disorders HEALTH AND NUTRITION The body only requires a tiny amount of vitamins. Some vitamins like A and D can be stored in the liver. Some have to be consumed regularly, e.g. vitamin C. The body will excrete excess amounts. Minerals are just as important. Vitamins and minerals are found in all types of food but are particularly present in fruits and vegetables. Vitamin A promotes healthy eyes and skin Vitamin C strengthens the immune system Vitamin D promotes strong bones and teeth, and essential for absorption of calcium. Calcium promotes healthy teeth and bones Iron promotes blood production, prevents tiredness. Iodine promotes production of thyroxine hormone controls metabolic rate
