Neymar’s PSG Debut To Be Delayed Again, As Barcelona Fail To Send Clearance

first_imgNeymar’s long awaited debut for new club, PSG, could be delayed again as Barcelona are yet to submit transfer clearance to French football authorities.French football governing body, LFP, has declared that they are yet to receive the International Transfer Certificate (CIT) from the Spanish football federation, thereby given a Thursday night deadline for the submission.LFP’s official statement read: “The Spanish federation of football has until Thursday night to send the CIT to the French Federation of football, who send it back to the French professional football league, and then Neymar can play with PSG this weekend.”The LFP also added that they might consider “launching an official procedure with Fifa”. However, the Spanish Federation of football are yet to issue a statement.If the Spanish authorities fail to meet the deadline, Neymar, who already missed PSG’s season opener against CS Amiens, still won’t be eligible to play in the Ligue 1.Neymar completed his world record €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain last week, and will reportedly earn £40.3m in wages per year after tax, with around £515,000-a-week.RelatedLa Liga Rejects Neymar 222m Euros Payment From PSGAugust 3, 2017In “Europe”Struggling Lille Handed Transfer Ban As PSG, Monaco And Metz Escape PunishmentDecember 13, 2017In “Europe”Neymar To PSG: Pros And ConsAugust 4, 2017In “Europe”last_img read more

Lance Stephenson gives Lakers a spark off the bench

Some of his mistakes have drawn animated responses from Walton; some have just drawn blank stares.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.But due to injuries (and Michael Beasley’s absence for personal reasons), the Lakers have needed to play Stephenson more minutes, perhaps what Walton had in mind when he said he was preparing to play “interesting” lineups before a recent game against Memphis. But Stephenson has repaid his faith so far.Stephenson was also one of the most composed players following the loss, saying he thought Harden made tough shots.With the Lakers headed to Charlotte still shorthanded, Stephenson was already looking forward to continuing his recent play. He believes the Lakers will quickly get back on track.“Just be aggressive, be in attack mode,” he said. “Play together, man, talk on defense. We’ve been doing a great job.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed HOUSTON — Even in a showdown between a pair of league MVPs, Lance Stephenson’s air guitar can make plenty of its own noise.The 28-year-old was back to making sweet music despite a 126-111 loss to the Rockets on Thursday night. He was one of only two Lakers bench players to score, pouring in 17 points for his first double-digit scoring night in nearly a month.Stephenson has been yo-yo-ing in and out of the rotation as much as any Laker, and on the last trip, Coach Luke Walton acknowledged it’s largely because of his turnovers – some of which stretch the imagination. But at least in Houston, Stephenson seemed to find an appropriate niche.“Being in attack mode,” he said. “Trying to make the easiest play possible, trying to get my teammates involved, just playing freely and trying to make no mistakes when I’m out there.” RONDO SEES HAND SPECIALIST, REMAINS IN L.A.The Lakers confirmed Thursday that Rajon Rondo (fractured right hand) saw a hand specialist in Los Angeles. The swelling that had to be drained on Sunday has gone down after the Lakers shut him off from activity earlier in the week, but he is scheduled to be evaluated again on Saturday before he can be potentially cleared for anything involving his hand. Rondo has been out of the lineup since Nov. 14, when he broke his hand in the fourth quarter of a game against Portland.Brandon Ingram (left ankle sprain) is still scheduled to be reevaluated on Saturday as well.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Lighter winds help crews gain on California wildfires

first_imgSANTA ROSA, Calif. — Tom and Catherine Andrews live on the edge of devastation.On one side of their mid-century style home, the deadly wildfires that ravaged parts of Northern California for more than a week wiped away the houses of neighbors they have known as long as two decades. On the other side were those like the Andrews, who were spared.On Monday as calm winds gave an advantage to firefighters trying to tame the flames, the couple balanced their good fortune against the losses suffered by many friends.“It was disbelief and just feeling like the luckiest guy on earth,” Tom Andrews said. “I can’t believe, I mean, total destruction 50 feet away and to have our house still standing here.”For his wife, a real estate agent who sold many of the homes to friends on Wikiup Drive, there was bitter along with the sweet.“It’s heartbreaking,” she said. “I’m trying not to have survivor’s guilt, I think they call it. But we’ve been here 20 years this week. We raised our kids in this house. So many of the families on this hill raised their kids.”last_img read more

Learn how to code for free through realworld ex

first_imgLearn how to code, for free, through real-world experiences, and with access to a community of programmers. That is the goal of this week’s featured GitHub Project: Free Code Camp.According to a recent survey by Stack Overflow, almost half of developers are self-taught. Being able to teach yourself how to write code is a feat within itself, but most companies are looking beyond your education—mainly your job experiences—when they are considering you as a potential employee. Free Code Camp aims to give developers that kind of real-world job experience by providing a community where programmers can learn to write code while building projects for nonprofit organizations.“Our campers (students) start by working through our free, self-paced, browser-based curriculum,” the project writes on its GitHub page. “Next, they build several practice projects. Finally, we pair two campers together with a stakeholder from a nonprofit organization, and help them build the solution the nonprofit has requested.”According to Free Code Camp, the benefits of joining its community include:Learning skills such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, databases, Git, Node.js, Angular.js and agileBeing connected to thousands of software development professionalsWorking on free and open-source projectsLearning to code at your own pace at the comfort of your own homeReal-time helpIn addition, Free Code Camp says it conditions its community members for a career in software engineering. Or, if you are a nonprofit organization, you can request help from the community.last_img read more
