From the goal the Cup returned, with a more active Madrid, on the back of Vinicius, an essential figure. There is no deeper player in the squad. He repeated again and again without anyone accompanying his arrivals. Valverde, Ramos and Marcelo were also close to the goal. In return, Zidane’s team seemed as long as the worst day, with the trio upstairs lazy in the fold. That opened a highway to the Real in the backlash.Ramos took all the offensive licenses and Marcelo delivered too far back. He has lost the angel. Casemiro’s absence enlarged one and the other. And then Isak appeared, who studies for Ibrahimovic and progresses properly. In eleven minutes he scored three goals, the first invalidated by the VAR and the other two valid. Big striker, volley goals (after great play by Barrenetxea, far superior to Januzaj) and right-handed to the squad.A 0-3 like that kills anyone, but nobody like Madrid has come out alive from lunges like that. A quick goal from Marcelo, in clear error of Remiro, surpassed by his stick, put him back in the game. To the team and the public, for whom the epic is adrenaline. It lasted ten minutes. What it took to leave at the fingertips of the squad a shot of Vinicius, the most involved in the cause, and in shooting Merino to Areola in sending of Isak, the almighty of the party.The case was seen, but there is no competition with more progress than the Cup or player with more faith than Vinicius. They annulled a goal and gave another to Rodrygo, in a Bernabéu that flew from resignation to illusion. In the discount, Nacho minimized the white handicap. Of that Real daring of the beginning there was hardly anything left. Imanol had been collecting candles with the changes and managing time. The one that has run out of Madrid in this Cup. Zidane had rebuilt Madrid from back to front, shrinking the team, making him defensively responsible, inventing Valverde, raising Casemiro to the generalate. And suddenly, in the Cup, his damn competition, the worst of the past appeared to him: a gurpolargo, untied back, without order or concert, with Marcelo and Ramos in their worst versions. That, before a team from head to toe like the Real, did not slip, despite the heroic final onslaught. From the Bernabéu came out reinforced Odegaard and decorated Isak. Vinicius, again in highs, was no consolation.Zidane has mutated the traditional alignment of convenience in alignment of coexistence, which leaves the present outdoors to make the future better. It is in danger. He has used the Cup to keep Marcelo and James alive, players of great past and little future, so he can arrive; so that Areola remains in a state of alertness, although what he alerted this time was his presence; for Modric, Casemiro and someone else to cure fatigue and stress, common occupational diseases football; and for some to complete the master. Vinicius and Brahim, fundamentally. The Malaga is a player of craftsmanship and also of immediate uncertain future because it lacks continuity. Bale, suspected of severe escaping in the eyes of the public, now looks out of that coffee for everyone. It will be difficult to mend that emotional gap.So that hybrid team, mixed holders and substitutes, with more silk than corduroy, crashed into a very recognizable Real that only kept Portu, the top player of his squad in the sum of goals and assists. But the Imanol team is excellent in both areas and its average age provides a very long journey.In the white memory was that first swampy part against Atlético with five midfielders. So Zidane widened the field with Vinicius, his foreign affairs ministry, and placed Brahim as the third medium, behind James. It was an acceptance of the asymmetry with two half-pointers with more style than work and greater exposure to danger before a team of ammunition left over. That did not work out. Brahim played little as a team. James is on the verge of total disconnection, although he left a great shot that Remiro guessed.At the start, in any case, he lacked the cupper outburst. Madrid arrived with objections, without going straight to the point, and Real followed it, with soccer content and waiting for the error of others. He found it soon, halfway through the first part. Areola was wrong twice, first by rejecting badly a distant shot from Isak and then swallowing the satin and centered shot of Odegaard, who was on the rebound. The ball entered passed between his legs, a gesture that always snubes a goalie. The Norwegian complied with the code of good conduct of the loan and did not celebrate it. Feel close your return.
United States Ambassador to Liberia, Madam Deborah R. Malac, has disclosed that partnership dialogue aimed at discussing key issues concerning Agriculture, Education, and Energy in Liberia, is to begin soon in Monrovia.Making the disclosure to the media on February 27, at a Ministry of Information regular press briefing, Ambassador Malac said the dialogue will begin Tuesday, March 4.The US-Liberia Partnership Dialogue came into existence in 2013, as the result of a memorandum of understanding between the U.S. and Liberia, signed by former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and President Ellen Johnson.The dialogue according to Ambassador Malac involves a high-level delegation that converges to discuss policies of mutual interest to Liberia and the United States.She said that the dialogue discusses policy differences and issues of cooperation, while identifying project for implementation to cement the relationship between the two countries.“The first partnership dialogue was held in May of 2013, in Washington, and Liberia is blessed to have it this year. We will be looking at three key areas that include Agriculture, which will look at food security, Energy, and human development with emphasis placed on Education: one important issue for the Government of Liberia,” Ambassador Malac noted.She recalled that during the first discussion in 2013, the two countries discussed food security and energy, and this time, they decided to include Education because it is so important to Liberia, in terms of human development.Responding to questions from the Daily Observer as to what problems may have been identified in the Education Sector that need to be included in the partnership dialogue, Ambassador Malac intoned that President Sirleaf last year openly told the public that the sector is faced with a huge challenge: Education.She said considering the challenge, they see it expedient to discuss and find solution to resolving the problems related to education, so that all Liberians can have access to good and quality education which is a right for the citizens.On the issue of US-Liberia relation, Ambassador Malac said while there may exist policy differences between the two partnering countries, the relationship is well cemented with no problem on either side.Also speaking, Liberia Ambassador to the United States, Jeremiah Sulunteh, who is on an official visit in the country emphasized that the dialogue will look at the Education Sector in depth, taking into consideration higher education including universities and colleges.Ambassador Sulunteh said that cases affecting the sector will be identified and discussed and steps to correct the mistakes will be identified for prompt action.The issue of education in the US-Liberia Partnership Dialogue is quite significance to the development of Liberia.The Education system of Liberia has numerous challenges ranging from unqualified instructors to academic fraud.Most churches upon establishing their religious temple bring up schools as the business aspect of the spiritual activity, and it is being noted that most teachers teaching there are neither qualified nor even academically inclined—basically, emphasizing Bible verses.At the university level, exchange of money for grade is at its peak, and dual work causes many instructors not to attend to the students, thus causing a setback in their (students) studies.Moreover, it has been noted over the past weeks that many instructors teaching at universities around Monrovia brought in faked degrees from African Countries including Nigeria. A case in point now is the arrest and subsequent detention of former Vice President for Academic Affairs of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University, N’dien Peters.Peters, who claimed to posse a Ph.D., was found to have a faked degree and unqualified for the position he held at the Zion University for about four years. He later applied to be a president of the St. Clement University.Zion Administration investigated the credential status of Peters and he was also sacked because of his questionable academic status.Upon his arrest, the Cameroonian national claimed there were also many Liberians he knows of, to have faked degrees. The Commission on Higher Education is investigating; but the names of those concerned are yet to come out. NCHE’s recent moves to address the situation seem to be losing steam.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
