A jump in his careerIn Nesyri He was very receptive from the outset to the proposal of Seville fundamentally by giving him the option of joining a great European football that will allow him to make a quality leap in his career. In addition, the economic proposal of the Nervión club was almost irrechazable.The player will charge in Seville between three and four times his salary in Leganés. To the south of the capital, he received around one million eurosSevilla was not the only club that showed interest in the Moroccan international. In the Premier League, Brighton, who already tried in summer, has insisted also now in his hiring. Goal reinforcementThe Andalusians are in need of a goal.

Atletico facing early exit after Qarabag draw

first_imgOnce again Diego Simeone’s men were made to pay for their profligacy in front of goal after Michel headed the visitors into the lead five minutes before half-time.Thomas Partey’s stunning drive from outside the box levelled 11 minutes into the second period and Qarabag had to survive for half an hour a man down after Pedro Henrique saw red.But Diego Godin, Filipe Luis and Nicolas Gaitan fluffed their lines with big chances to leave Atletico on the edge of the European abyss.Atletico have now won just once in their last eight games as their debut season at the Wanda Metropolitano is descending into a disaster.The hosts had started on the front foot as Antoine Griezmann’s right-footed volley from the edge of the area forced Ibrahim Sehic into a smart save.However, despite the vast disparity in budgets between the sides, it was the visitors who looked the more composed side in possession as the first half wore on, drawing whistles from the frustrated home crowd.Henrique was first to threaten as he ghosted past the out of sorts Godin, but his cross was cut out by Stefan Savic with two teammates waiting to apply the finishing touch at the back post.Atletico’s major problem in recent months has been finding the net and their lack of cutting edge was demonstrated as Sehic raced from his goal to smother Kevin Gameiro’s shot from a narrow angle and Godin powered a header over.Simeone was infuriated when Jakub Rzezniczak was only shown a yellow card for hauling down Gameiro on the edge of the box 10 minutes before half-time.And the Argentine had even more to more to be concerned about five minutes later when Michel met Donald Guerrier’s corner flush to send a header into the top corner despite Jan Oblak’s best efforts.Of the 10 goals Atletico have conceded this season, seven have now come from headers as a former strength of Simeone’s teams has quickly become an alarming weakness.Buoyed by a half-time dressing down from Simeone, Atletico again started the second period at a higher tempo and Gameiro somehow fired wide after Sehic had parried Angel Correa’s initial effort straight back into the heart of the area.Moments later Atletico could have found themselves 2-0 behind but for a brilliant goal line clearance from Savic.That proved to be a turning point as Partey swept Griezmann’s layoff into the top corner on 56 minutes.Qarabag were then reduced to 10 men just before the hour mark when Henrique was shown a straight red for a dangerous high challenge on Godin.The Uruguayan defender’s eventful 90 minutes continued as he then saw a powerful header cleared off the line.Luis had the best chance to leave the 10 men without a reward when he stabbed wide when clean through.The Brazilian full-back sent another long-range effort off target and Godin saw another late header saved by Sehic.And Sehic saved Qarabag again in the dying seconds with a brilliant block from Gaitan, while Atletico were also reduced to 10 men when Savic was shown a second yellow.Atletico missed the creative impact of the injured Koke and Yannick Carrasco as a third straight home draw leaves their European dreams hanging by a thread.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Atletico Madrid failed to overcome a 10-man Qarabag side for the second time in a fortnight in Champions League Group C.MADRID, Spain, Oct 31 –  Atletico Madrid were left staring an embarrassing early Champions League exit in the face after being held 1-1 at home by 10-man Azerbaijani champions Qarabag on Tuesday.The 2014 and 2016 finalists now need to beat Roma and Chelsea in their last two Group C games and hope other results go in their favour after a paltry return of three points from their opening four games.last_img read more

Youths’ STD rates are high, especially here

first_img“If you look at the overall numbers, the biggest impact are from two diseases,” said Dr. Jonathan E. Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “One is HIV and the other is HPV.” Fielding said the data also highlights the “hidden epidemic” of chlamydia and gonorrhea. “This disproportionately affects young people and has a lot of secondary effects,” Fielding said. “For some women, chlamydia leads to infertility.” From 2000 to 2005 in Los Angeles County, the number of reported cases of gonorrhea jumped from 7,199 to 10,494. Syphilis more than tripled from 336 to 1,213, and chlamydia increased from 30,546 to 38,862. “But HIV is really what we are most concerned about,” said Dr. Peter Kerndt, director of the county’s Sexually Transmitted Disease Program. “We know the rates of HIV in the younger age groups and among minorities are increasing. That’s where the epidemic is growing the fastest.” Kerndt noted several reasons for the increases, including better screening by youths covered under managed-care insurance plans. Also, today’s youths generally are more sexually active, sometimes have multiple sexual partners and simultaneously place themselves at higher risk by using drugs and alcohol, Kerndt said. Health officials are also concerned about recent increases in different types of reported STDs among youth, including HIV, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea. Although HIV became a reportable disease last year, no statistics are currently available, and HPV is not a reportable disease. But health officials are especially concerned about HPV, noting that more than 90 percent of people who have the disease have no symptoms. Although research suggests that most immune systems will eliminate HPV infection within a year or two, about 10 percent of people remain infected for much longer, possibly for life. A vaccine that now protects against four HPV types – which cause about 70 percent of cervical cancer cases and 90 percent of genital warts – is now approved for females ages 11 to 26. “If you have private insurance, you can be vaccinated by your private physician,” Kerndt said. “If they are eligible, they can receive vaccines in publicly funded clinics.” About half of hepatitis B cases are also sexually transmitted. Infected people often have no symptoms, but it can lead to fatal liver disease. A vaccine is also available for hepatitis B. “If youth are having sex, they should make sure they have protection,” Fielding said. “Condoms, for most of these diseases but not all, are the first line of protection.” troy.anderson@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Researchers used statistic estimation methods recently developed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to estimate the number of new cases and associated medical costs for eight major STDs. “This epidemic is like an iceberg – what you see is just a small part of what you have,” said Petra Jerman, a research scientist at the Oakland-based Public Health Institute’s Center for Research and Adolescent Health. “The estimated number of new cases and their associated costs illustrate that the STD epidemic among California youth remains largely hidden.” The report comes as health officials have expressed growing concerns about serious complications STDs can cause. The human papillomavirus, or HPV, is linked to cervical and anal cancer. Other STDs can increase the chance of contracting HIV by two to six times. By Troy Anderson STAFF WRITER More than 1 million youths in California have sexually transmitted diseases that cost the state more than $1 billion a year in treatment, according to a study to be released today. And nearly one- third of all the cases – 361,876 – are in Los Angeles County at an annual cost of $390million, according to the study by the Public Health Institute. last_img read more

NFL reaches agreement to use Coliseum

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The commissioner did say: “It’s the first time we’ve had agreement on term sheets. We’re one step closer, two or three steps closer. Whether it’s 2009, 2010, or 2000-whatever, our goal is to have definitive agreements on all subject matters well before our league meetings in March.” The Los Angeles area, the second-largest television market in the country, has been without an NFL team since the Raiders moved from the Coliseum back to Oakland and the Rams moved from Anaheim to St. Louis before the 1995 season. After announcing plans in the spring of 1999 to put an expansion team in the Coliseum, the NFL was unable to reach an agreement with the Los Angeles backers and instead awarded the 32nd franchise to Houston that October. Houston businessman Bob McNair and his backers offered to pay $700 million for the new franchise and spend another $310 million on a stadium, making it the NFL’s first billion-dollar deal. The Texans began play in 2002. Tagliabue said significant progress has been made in the past year regarding the Coliseum. His statement came following a meeting with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and before a session with Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle. The NFL and city officials have reached a preliminary agreement on terms to bring a team back to the Los Angeles Coliseum. Commissioner Paul Tagliabue made the announcement Thursday on the steps of City Hall. But he didn’t identify a potential tenant or speculate when Los Angeles might get the team. He also spoke positively about a team playing at a facility proposed for the Angel Stadium parking lot in Anaheim and didn’t rule out the Rose Bowl in Pasadena as a possible home field, either. As Tagliabue entered a limousine, he was asked if he could assess the significance of what he had just announced. He replied, “I’d rather not try.” “I think the critical thing now is we’re at the point where it’s recognized, certainly by us, that the time is right,” Tagliabue said. “We have to get agreements finalized. We’ll be pursuing agreements in Anaheim. We’re going to work with both communities for an agreement.” He said there have been no in-depth discussions on whether the region would get an expansion or existing team. Tagliabue said last month that future expansion was unlikely anywhere but Los Angeles. He also said it was important to make sure Southern California, the nation’s top-ranked college team, was comfortable with any agreement, since the Trojans have made the Coliseum their home since 1923. Tagliabue planned on meeting with USC coach Pete Carroll later Thursday. The commissioner met with Gov. Arnold Schwarzennegger late Wednesday. Tentative plans call for the NFL to finance construction of a $500 million stadium inside the Coliseum, home to the Rams from 1946-79 and the Raiders from 1982-94. City Councilman Bernard Parks said after listening to Tagliabue that he believes the Coliseum will eventually get an existing team rather than an expansion team. “The NFL is going to have a say on who’s going to come here. The Coliseum has no role in selecting a team,” Parks said. Asked when it might happen, Parks replied: “I don’t know. Nobody’s signed anything. They’ve got to say they’re coming.” That being said, Parks expressed optimism. “In my judgment, I don’t believe these business people waste their time and money,” he said. “They’ve spent a lot of time and money.” While Tagliabue didn’t rule out the Rose Bowl, the Pasadena City Council voted 5-2 with one abstention last June to pursue a plan for the stadium that doesn’t involve the NFL. Carson dropped out of contention in May when city officials decided to build a mall on its proposed site. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
