Abelardo builds a Espanyol that is finally the winner

first_imgThe numbers make the Espanyol de Abelardo a reliable team and the wrongdoing of the beginning of the course has been left behind. The comparisons are sometimes odious, but the data obtained with David Gallego and Pablo Machín were unsustainable and hence the parakeets settled dangerously in the descent. Gallego was the first coach of this course and his only triumph in the eight days played takes on a miracle because he only managed to be ahead on the scoreboard in 59 minutes in the League. On the contrary, he was a total of 332 ’losing. One victory, two draws and five league losses defeated him and he thought of Machin as revulsive. But it made water. With him, it is true that he was ahead in 151 minutes during his ten league games, but he was in tow in 452 ’.With Abelardo there is hope. The most important thing is that he is trying to make the Galgo and Machín streaks forget. Between these two they were 210 ’winning (784’ losing). Abelardo has already been 157 ’with his Espanyol commanding. This team is a winner, as it is showing in all the games played. Abelardo’s arrival on the Espanyol bench has brought confidence and optimism. With him, the perico carbura team obtains results in LaLiga (he has added eight of 15 possible) and dreams of permanence. And the Asturian coach has managed to make this Espanyol, in the end, a winning block. The numbers confirm this because since he has taken over the blue and white team, he has added 157 minutes being ahead on the scoreboard and only 125 ’losing. In total, it has +32 ’.Abelardo premiered on January 4 against Barcelona (2-2) and has since endowed his team with defensive strength and Raúl de Tomás is giving him a lot of air in attack. His only defeat in the League came against Granada (2-1), but one of the positive aspects is that Espanyol has scored in the five meetings with Abelardo. And this has helped him to be a winning team because in just three games he has gone a few minutes behind on the scoreboard. He was falling 29 minutes against Barcelona, ​​52 ’against Athletic and 44’ in Granada. And the latter was the only time they failed to tie the duel. Spanishism relies on permanence and is that the current moment is good and the sensations, too.last_img read more

The consent of the players to the tests will specify that there is no zero risk

first_imgPellicer (Málaga), on Canal Sur: “It is a time to unite”Meeting: “It is a situation of uncertainty and baffling. We must measure the words from our responsibility. Soccer is also a business. Right now there is a fear that is COVID-19 and we all have to go hand in hand and know that society, everyone, we live a society that no one imagined. On Friday we will have a meeting with LaLiga with the captains. It is a time to unite in the face of so much discrepancy. “Covenants: “The players were not there either, the real protagonists. You have to use the words well and be restrained. Everyone has their opinion. At a professional level we want to finish the competition. On protocols everything is being done on their part to be as safe as possible When there are so many people saying … If two people are already difficult to agree … “.Squad ready to play 72 hours: “This has never happened, it is not like when the players have just competed and go on vacation. The competition has been cut in the most important period, with everyone on a high peak. Those four weeks of training at the collective level is what we professionals understand to be the ideal before competing. Soccer is not pure mathematics ”.Stop: “More or less, what we could take into account. One makes a forecast. This is something totally unheard of, we do not know this cut on a physical and emotional level how it will be. There are many deceased and many people suffering. Anomalous situation. It will depend on the feedback we have with the players. Soccer is a collective, oppositional sport ”Meeting with LaLiga: “We theoretically have that meeting captains and coaches. Tomorrow we may have some information from our doctors. Each professional gives his opinion because it is a very delicate situation. You cannot play with health and not be populist. I have my wife who goes to work and I am also at high risk, like many people on a daily basis ”Player objector: “Personal situation and everyone is responsible for their actions. All we want is to have the players 100×100 physically and mentally. Cases have come up, we have direct contact with the staff, they have their doubts like everyone else, but they are a mature group and they hope that everything will be solved and that they will be in maximum security ”. LaLiga met today with the doctors of the First and Second professional clubs to inform them that the protocol they finished writing last week still stands in its entirety, despite complaints from footballers and coaches in recent days. Furthermore, they reported that they will continue to stick to the established plan, even with concentrations in sports cities or hotels before restarting the competition (the players press to at least cut the 15 days), and that they will begin to perform the famous tests on April 28 to check that the coronavirus does not ruin the plans to end the season.Players they will have to sign a consent to carry out the test in which they are warned that there is no zero risk in infections. This was confirmed in SER the doctor Rafael Ramos, President of the Association of Soccer Doctors.Irene Lozano, Secretary of State for Sport, stated that “it seems to me a little soon that the tests will be done on April 28, but I don’t deny it either“LaLiga has informed the doctors that it has already hired the private company SYNLAB to carry out the tests during that week. First the corresponding PCRs and then the serological tests and the rapid tests, although the latter are not as reliable. In fact, and as Isaac Fouto has advanced in the Cope, The employers have already asked the clubs for the lists of all the people who have to undergo these controls immediately. The idea, according to the sources consulted, is to be able to start training at sports facilities from the second week of May. Some doctors have asked questions that could not be fully answered, so they have asked that this information be sent to them soon.LaLiga also planned to meet this Wednesday with AFE to discuss everything related to health, but in the end the meeting has been postponed to Thursday. The footballers already made it clear in the meeting last Tuesday that, despite the pacts and reports written, they would only follow the instructions of Health.In the next few hours, surely on Friday, the employers, together with their health specialists, are scheduled to meet with the captains and the First and Second coaches. This has been confirmed by the Malaga coach, Sergio Pellicer, on Canal Sur: “On Friday we will have a meeting with LaLiga together with the captains.” LaLiga sources assure that this meeting has no time or day and there is no call, but several professional trainers confirm to AS that, for the moment, Friday is the day set.last_img read more

first_imgShaun ‘the yank’ Boyle is back from the States and is ready to fire Naomh Muire to victory over Naomh Conaill in the Donegal SFC.Naomh Muire return to Senior championship action for the first time since 2000 when they host Naomh Conaill in the Donegal SFC on Saturday evening.The Lower Rosses club won the Intermediate championship in convincing fashion last year, and in doing so booked a ticket to Donegal football’s top table for the first time in almost twenty years.Naomh Muire have made massive progress on and off the pitch and boast fantastic facilities that are the envy of many clubs across the county. On Saturday they return to the Donegal SFC action when they entertain Naomh Conaill.Naomh Muire have enjoyed a good league campaign in Division Two, especially when you consider they’ve played the majority of their matches without star players Shaun ‘the yank’ Boyle, Adi O’Gara, Owen Grant and Darragh White who all departed to the USA for the summer.Naomh Conaill last won the Donegal SFC in 2010, and in the same year reached the Ulster final were they were narrowly defeated by Crossmaglen.They were also defeated by St.Eunan’s in the county decider in 2012. They have the players at their disposal to win another Senior championship and will be boosted by the return of Donegal players Leo McLoone, Anthony Thompson, Leon Thompson and Dermot ‘the brick’ Molloy.It will be a formidable test for Naomh Muire, but they’ll lack no motivation for Saturday’s encounter.Naomh Conaill will be itching to avoid a repeat of last season in which they exited the championship at the group stages.They’ll be hoping to go all the way this year and will believe they have the ability to do so.The Banks is a formidable place for any team to go, but Naomh Conaill’s greater experience at this level should give them the edge.

HSE staff to take LGBT+ training course

first_imgIreland’s first eLearning training course has been launched to help HSE staff in their work with LGBT+ service users.The course was developed by LGBT Ireland in partnership with the HSE’s Sexual Health and Crisis Pregnancy Programme (SHCPP) and will be available to all staff.The course aims to help all staff within the HSE to develop understanding of how they might make simple changes to their everyday work practices to provide an enhanced service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The eLearning training is also available to partner organisations which have access to the HSELanD platform.As well as summarising important LGBT+ terminology, the training covers topics such as: LGBT+ inclusion, transgender people and healthcare and inclusive communication. Paula Fagan, Chief Executive Officer with LGBT Ireland said “Each year we have a growing number of requests for LGBT+ equality and diversity awareness programmes from employers and statutory agencies across Ireland. We find that most people are willing and eager to improve their approach to LGBT+ service users but may be blocked by a lack of understanding, or a fear of not doing or saying the right thing. The development and launch of this online module will go some way to respond to this as it has the capacity to reach large numbers of HSE staff”.

Pulling a Clean Green Screen Chroma Key In DaVinci Resolve

first_imgDaVinci Resolve may be known as one of the world’s best color grading platforms, but its compositing/chroma key tools are just as impressive.Top image: background from Dume StudiosIn some cases when working as a colorist, you may be given pre-keyed footage. Your editor or VFX artist may have already gone ahead and keyed out a green screen shot for you, and will simply send you a composited shot to color grade.In other instances though, you’ll need to pull the key yourself. If you’re like many colorists who are DaVinci Resolve experts, but don’t necessarily have a lot of experience with other VFX software (such as Nuke or After Effects), you’ll likely be tempted to pull your color keys right inside of DaVinci Resolve. The good news is that Resolve has an extremely powerful keyer built right in, and you can absolutely use it for your chroma key work. This short tutorial from FilmmakerCentral will show you just how to do it:Here’s a breakdown of the steps in the video:1. Set up Your TimelineBefore getting started with your chroma key work, you need to set up your timeline by placing the background plate on track one and the green screen shot on track two, just as you would in any other NLE.2. Use the QualifierOnce you move back into your “color” tab on DaVinci Resolve, you’ll want to use the eyedropper/qualifier tool to isolate the green background. You can use the highlight visualizer to show you a black and white image of what’s selected vs. what isn’t.3. Invert Your SelectionBy default, your selection will of course be on the green elements in the frame. For the purpose of this process, you need to invert your selection in the qualifier tab. The goal is to have your background appear completely black, and the subject fully white.4. Fine TuneWith your selection still highlighted and inverted, adjust the threshold of your settings in the qualifier tab until you get the cleanest result possible.Image from Shutterstock5. Adjust the BlurOnce your key is looking solid, use the “blur radius” setting to add a little bit of softening to the edges. This will help to hide or smooth over any imperfections in the process.6. Create Alpha OutputWith your key now complete, you’ll need to tell DaVinci Resolve how to composite your footage. The first step is to right click in your node tree and select “Add alpha output.” You then need to drag a line from your green screen node (using the small triangle at the bottom of the node) to your alpha output, which will sit just under your normal output on the right side of the node window.7. Fine Tune Some MoreNow that you can actually see your image composited, you may notice some green spill or other areas of the key that still need to be fine tuned. Go back into your qualifier tab and fine tune the settings some more until you achieve an end result you’re satisfied with. One of the features in this video that was highlighted is the “in/out Ratio,” which can help to clean up your edges.Got any DaVinci Resolve tips/tricks/techniques to share?
