“The night before the Seventh we were in the lobby until four in the morning”

first_img“My favorite moment at Real Madrid would be the victory of the Seventh” Favorite moment at Real Madrid: “I will never forget that night (after the Seventh). Then we headed to the Plaza de Cibeles. The streets were flooded with hundreds of thousands of people, dressed in their white shirts and scarves, singing and celebrating. If I had to choose my favorite moment of my years at Real Madrid, it would be that triumph “.The galactics: “You would come to the locker room, sit down, look around and see the winner of the Ballon d’Or, the player of the year in Spain, Pichichi, the best goalkeeper in the world. Being part of that environment was very special. Sometimes, I sat and thought: “Look where you came from and look where you are now. “ I was proud. “White late afternoon: “My last game at the club was on June 17, 2007. We received Mallorca at the Bernabéu, on the last day of the season, and we were tied on points with Barcelona, ​​who faced Gimnàstic. If we both won, we We knew we would keep the title, thanks to the direct confrontations against Barça. We started losing, 0-1 from early, but in the second half we went back and won 3-1. It was an incredible victory. “ Arrival at Real Madrid: “I went to Cibeles, Cibeles is one of the most iconic places. But for football fans, it carries an extra meaning. Cibeles is the place where Real Madrid (and also the Spanish National Team) meets to celebrate their titles.”Confinement: “I can’t go to work. In the last month I have left my house twice, and that was to go to the supermarket. Staying home all day is making me walk on the walls. But at the moment, it is the right thing to do and what to do. I could not recognize my city. The streets are completely empty. I have never seen Madrid like this. “ The night before the Seventh: “We had suffered in the League that season. Juve was in the final for the third consecutive year. We arrived at the game without being the favorites. The night before the final, none of us could sleep. Normally we went to bed at 10 o’clock night, but that night we were sitting in the lobby at four in the morning, telling each other stories. We were not afraid, but we did have a lot of respect for Juventus. “Final against Juventus: “We did very well in that final. Juve had many chances, but we won 1-0. Not only did we win that game with our quality, but we also did it with our motivation. We loved him more than they did.” Roberto Carlos arrived at Real Madrid in 1996, by the hand of the recently deceased Lorenzo Sanz to join the Fabio Capello team. He left in 2007, after being one more member of the Madrid of ‘Los Galacticos’. He is now director of Institutional Relations of the white entity. The Brazilian winger reviews in first person to The Players’ Tribune some aspects of those years and how day to day of the state of alarm. His story: ‘The Good Life’. “I was proud to belong to Los Galacticos” Lorenzo Sanz: “He was the man who brought me to the club. Only the memory of Lorenzo already makes me smile. Although he was a president, above all things he was an amateur. She lived for Real Madrid. When we tied or lost, it left us alone. But when we won titles, he was the first to hug us. He was like a father to us. I have never called Lorenzo Sanz, and I have never tried it. For me he was always President, or Pressure“Debut of white: “I remember the first time I played at the Bernabéu, in front of 80,000 people. I was like … ‘Ehm, what am I doing here? Now what happens if I make a mistake?’It was scary! But it was also one of the best days of my life. “ “Debut at the Bernabéu, in front of 80,000 people. It was awesome! It was one of the best days of my life” Feelings: “But what I remember most about that day was the way the fans treated me. Everyone knew it was my farewell match. David Beckham was also leaving. That’s when I realized what he had done for the club. There that’s when I realized how much the fans loved me. “last_img read more

first_imgDOZENS of people across Co Donegal are facing substantial fines and being forced to pay arrears for failing to have TV Licences.Fourteen cases were dealt with at Letterkenny District Court this week.Some defendants faced fines of more than €200. The cases – and others before other district courts in the county – are a result of a clampdown in the spring as TV Licence Inspectors called at hundreds of homes where there was no record of a licence being held.Judge Paul Kelly was given several different excuses by the defendants – who we have decided not to name – for failing to have the licences.The prosecutions were brought by An Post.We understand a new wave of inspections are underway in the county.Under new government proposals every home in the country will be required to have a TV license whether or not people have a television.The new rules are expected to be in place next year.DOZENS FACING FINES FOR DODGING TV LICENCE FEE was last modified: September 5th, 2013 by John2Share 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:District Courtdonegaltv licencelast_img read more

first_imgIn a new year message, Church of Ireland Bishop of Derry and Raphoe Ken Good has warned that in “focusing so much on what we do not have, we can be in danger of becoming increasingly joyless, powerless and dispirited. A spirit of poverty can erode our sense of hope and can rob us of much of the joy of living, such that our difficulties are compounded.”Bishop Good said that “media continue to remind us, repeatedly and relentlessly, of what we all know only too well: the immensity of the economic challenges we face, the impact of austerity measures, that our standard of living is falling and that things will continue to be difficult for some years to come.”But the start of a new year was a time to be reminded “that there are other indicators of the quality of life, besides those of a purely financial and economic nature”. Even in the face “of serious austerity measures, there can be real value in deciding to be grateful for many good things we do have”, he said.These included “being and feeling alive; enjoying a measure of health, for our family and relationships; having work to do, whether paid or not; the joys of the natural world; a place to live with its security and comfort; the food we enjoy; our faith and sense of purpose in life; our church, our friends and our social life; interests, hobbies, sport; our freedoms and human rights . . . ,” he said.“A conscious decision to be grateful and to be generous can, in fact, be quite empowering and can help us deal with difficult financial circumstances with greater control and resolve,” he said.  BISHOP GOOD WARNS AGAINST NEGATIVE THINKING IN 2012 was last modified: January 3rd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:bishop ken goodlast_img read more

Cosmologists Cling to Ghosts

first_imgDark matter has never been found, but their pet theory needs it. What will secular cosmologists do next?Why do cosmologists cling to a substance they cannot find? It’s like hugging a ghost. They love it, and they want it. But the ghost vanishes whenever they try to embrace it.In current cosmology, dark matter is like the Force that binds everything together, but it has no light side. It emits no energy, does not interact with ordinary matter, and cannot be seen directly. And like the dark side, it drags its believers further into conflict – with reality. The more money they pour into the search, the bigger the letdown at non-detection.Cosmologists insist it must be there, because galaxies and clusters would fly apart otherwise. The favored hot big bang model also requires dark matter to cause ordinary matter to clump into galaxies. Cosmologists are fond of telling impressionable outsiders that only 4% of what we see is ordinary matter; the rest of the universe is dark matter and dark energy. But how can scientists be confident in the existence of material that escapes all their most sensitive instruments?Physicists Keep Trying — and Failing — to Find Dark Matter in Dark Places (Space.com). Rafi Letzer, who concurs with the materialists’ belief in dark matter, nevertheless has to admit that cosmologists haven’t found it and don’t even know what it is. Another hypothesis has just bitten the dust:Scientists have very good reason to believe that dark matter exists — that there’s some unseen stuff tugging on everything with its gravity but that’s invisible to our telescopes. But they don’t know what that dark matter is actually made of. Physicists have some guesses. But researchers have never spotted any direct evidence to suggest that any particular guess is correct, with one possible exception: A single detector in Italy sparkled more in the winter than the summer, hinting that a particular model of dark matter was correct. But now, a new experiment trying to replicate that annual sparkle cycle has failed to turn up significant results, indicating that the Italian detector’s dark matter evidence is likely wrong.Scientists Pinpoint Where Dark Matter Is Hiding in the Universe (Space.com). Despite its optimistic headline, this earlier piece by Rafi Letzer does not suggest dark matter has been detected. Letzer only reports about a new map of galaxy clusters that might show where the ghost is “hiding.” The hiding places, suggested by the shapes of gravitationally-lensed objects, are theoretical. Their identification as “hiding places” depends on the theory of what the mysterious unknown stuff is supposed to do to ordinary matter.The search for dark matter that runs on time (Nature). In this news brief, Nature hopes that “A far-flung network of atomic clocks could hunt for defects in the fabric of space-time.” Perhaps the universe is crooked. Perhaps dark matter is a set of topological defects since the big bang. Perhaps. But the article admits from the beginning, “Most of the matter in the Universe is unaccounted for — it seems to exert a gravitational pull on other objects, but emits no light.” If scientists could organize a network of atomic clocks, perhaps they could waste more time testing the “topological-defect theory and other dark matter candidates” before the next non-detection letdown.Artist conception of dark matter expanding in a field of dark energy. (Note to adherents of scientism: This is a joke.)The 11 Biggest Unanswered Questions About Dark Matter (Live Science). The unanswered questions listed by Adam Mann are pretty basic: What is it? Where is it? Does dark matter even exist?A new era in the search for dark matter (Nature). Optimism in the headline gives way to despair in the first paragraph. Notice the words crisis and problem in this piece by Bertone and Tait, who call for a time out and change of direction from all previous search efforts.There is a growing sense of ‘crisis’ in the dark-matter particle community, which arises from the absence of evidence for the most popular candidates for dark-matter particles—such as weakly interacting massive particles, axions and sterile neutrinos—despite the enormous effort that has gone into searching for these particles. Here we discuss what we have learned about the nature of dark matter from past experiments and the implications for planned dark-matter searches in the next decade. We argue that diversifying the experimental effort and incorporating astronomical surveys and gravitational-wave observations is our best hope of making progress on the dark-matter problem.What they have ‘learned,’ though is that dark matter might not even exist. They’ve been thinking about it for over a century. When do they give up and admit defeat? Bertone and Tait end with strategies to “leave no stone unturned” in the search for the unknown substance. At what point do scientists realize: ‘We have looked under enough stones now. The ghost we are looking for probably will not be found under the next thousand stones.’Ironically, they claim they all want to pursue natural knowledge. “In the quest for dark matter, naturalness has been the guiding principle since the dark-matter problem was established in the early 1980s.” Ghosts, by definition, are not natural.Since one can never prove a universal negative, we cannot state emphatically that dark matter does not exist and will never be found. The dark matter problem, though, resembles the search for the ancestors to the Cambrian Explosion. Darwin thought they would turn up as more fossils were located. Unfortunately for him and his disciples since 1859, they are still missing. We have found many thousands of fossils, but they sort into existing categories. Paleontologists can safely assume they have turned over enough stones; ancestors to Cambrian animals likely do not exist.What an odd thing: thousands of intelligent, well-educated scientists pursuing ghosts with indefatigable intensity. You thought falsification was a criterion of science. The dark-matter believers have been falsified for a century but won’t give up. What drives these people to keep bashing their heads against the wall? The answer: it’s an obsessive-compulsive disorder, inherited through teachers, that insists on believing in an old, materialistic universe. Continuous pain in the forehead is not too large a price to pay to avoid the implications of Genesis 1:1.Exercise: Think of other areas in science where the consensus clings to a belief in spite of the evidence.(Visited 532 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
