by ,

first_img1 Manchester United are eyeing up a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to reports in Spain.The striker’s contract expires at the end of the season and he has been linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain.Clubs in the MLS and Middle East have expressed an interest as the 34-year-old considers his options.But now, according to fichajes.net, Manchester United have joined the race for the Sweden international.Attacking reinforcements are a priority for United boss Louis van Gaal and Ibrahimovic is said to be high on his list of targets.While he could be secured on a free next summer one potential stumbling block is the player’s wages, which are currently £230,000-a-week.

Hanukkah begins at sundown tomorrow

by ,

first_imgObservant Jews in the Southland will light candles at sundown tomorrow to mark the first day of Hanukkah, the eight-day “Festival of Lights” commemorating the Maccabees’ victory over a larger Syrian army in 165 B.C. Once the Jews defeated the Hellenist Syrian forces of Antiochus IV at the end of a three-year rebellion, the temple in Jerusalem, which the occupiers had dedicated to the worship of Zeus, was rededicated by Judah Maccabee, who had led the insurgency launched by his father, the high priest Mattathias. Maccabee and his soldiers, who wanted to light the temple’s ceremonial lamp with ritually pure olive oil as part of their rededication, found only enough oil to burn for one day. But, in what was regarded as a miracle, the oil burned for eight days. Hanukkah — it means dedication in Hebrew — is observed around the world by the lighting of candles in a Hanukkah menorah each day at sundown for eight days, with an additional candle added each day. In the United States, the tradition of giving children Hanukkah “gelt” (the Yiddish word for money) has evolved into a gift-giving holiday to prevent Jewish children from feeling left out of Christmas gift-giving. Unlike the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, or Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, observant Jews are permitted to work and attend school during Hanukkah, which, in Judaism, is regarded as a relatively minor holiday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Other Hanukkah traditions include spinning a dreidel, a four-sided top, which partially commemorates a game that Jews under Greek domination played to camouflage their Torah study, and eating foods fried in olive oil, such as potato pancakes and jelly doughnuts. Hanukkah’s official acceptance in the United States has grown in recent years, with the U.S. Postal Service issuing the first in a series of Hanukkah stamps in 1996. A Hanukkah menorah — it is called a Hanukiah and differs from a traditional menorah by having nine branches, instead of seven — was first lit in the White House in 2001, which now has become an annual practice. last_img read more

NORTH WEST 10K: HOW TO AVOID HICCUPS THIS SUNDAY

by ,

first_imgHOW TO AVOID RACE DAY HICCUPS FOR SUNDAY’S NORTH WEST 10K1. GET UP EARLY: Give yourself plenty of time to breakfast and don’t eat anything different from your usual routine. Try to eat no later than an hour before the start. Don’t forget to hydrate.2. DRESS SMART: This is not the day to wear that snazzy new sports bra. You will regret it when it starts to chaff at the 3k mark. Wear road-tested kit. Just don’t experiment with new gear. 3. WARM UP: Walk or jog for 10-15 mins. The warm- up helps to slowly raise your heart rate and helps minimise stress on your heart when you start to run.4. LINE UP PROPERLY: Try to position yourself with runners of similar ability. If you line up with seasoned runners you will more than likely take off too fast and finish in a heap.5. RUN YOUR OWN RACE: You know how you’ve trained so try to find your rhythm. When the adrenaline kicks in, pace yourself. Don’t start too quickly and go hell for leather by following the pack.6. USE OTHER RUNNERS TO BOOST YOUR RUN: If you’re feeling tired, pick out someone a short distance ahead and try to maintain the same distance. Use the pace of other runners around you to keep,you going. 7. RELAX: If you’re tense you will be less efficient. Try to remember to relax your shoulders and focus on your breathing. This will help you run easier.8.

GALLIGAN – “WE NEED TO RESTORE MORALE IN GARDAI AFTER CONTROVERSIES

by ,

first_imgLocal election candidate Christy Galligan believes there is an urgent need to establish the promised new Independent Garda Authority, so that morale can be returned to the Garda force in Donegal as quickly as possible. Election candidate Christy Galligan has called for morale to be restored within the Gardai.Speaking from the campaign trail this week, Galligan told Donegal Daily, “I know that morale among local members of the force is extremely low at the moment, and it’s a direct result of the recent controversies involving penalty points, whistleblowers, and alleged bugging.“I have been contacted by many of my former colleagues lately and it is clear that morale is on the floor. According to Galligan, the sequence of these controversial events has dealt a major body blow to the morale of the local members of the force in Donegal.Galligan feels while there is a pressing need to instill public confidence in the force once again, we also need to restore trust within the organisation itself.Galligan said, “At the end of the day, serving Garda members need to have full faith in the capacity of the organisation to carry out its duties effectively.“That is why the new Garda Authority, which has been promised by the Government, must be set up as quickly as possible so that members of the force can move on from this difficult saga in the knowledge that effective oversight mechanisms are in place, he added. Galligan has said in the past the importance that the Authority be set up under the ambit of the existing Garda Inspectorate.With existing expertise and manpower there, a move would save hugely on costs and resources.Galligan concluded, “There are many fantastic and enthusiastic members of the force in Donegal who go out to serve the public in what can often be an extremely dangerous and challenging job. Establishing the Garda Authority will go a long way towards boosting morale.GALLIGAN – “WE NEED TO RESTORE MORALE IN GARDAI AFTER CONTROVERSIES was last modified: May 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Election 2014: Christy GalligannewsPoliticslast_img read more

Rumours that Buster has secured the services of the affable Mrs Brown have not yet been confirmed, although it is believed that initial negotiations have taken place between both parties.It’s believed that her role at the club would involve making sandwiches for after the games, and ensuring the kit is sparkling clean for every match. BUSTER BROWN GETS HIS TEAM READY FOR THE NEW SEASON was last modified: August 8th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BusterDanny O’CarrollFeaturesLagan Harps FCMrs Brown’s BoysnewsSportlast_img read more
