After resting at the beginning of the week, Madrid completed on Friday the third session for Sunday’s game against Betis (9:00 pm, Movistar LaLiga). In it were all the first team players except for Asensio and Hazard, the only ones injured.The Balearic, in the final stretch of the serious injury that has been in the dry dock since last summer, jumped to the grass and exercised alone. The Belgian, meanwhile, was operated yesterday successfully in Dallas from the fissure in the right distal fibula he suffered on February 22 in the Ciutat de València. The first weeks after the intervention will be important to determine the period of Hazard leave, which will go from two to three months. At the moment, neither Madrid, nor the player, nor Belgium rule out reaching the end of the League, although it will not be easy. There is much more confidence, however, that he plays the European Championship in summer.Otherwise, Zidane arranged a training that began with a warm-up with the ball. Then there was time for exercises of possession and pressure, tactics and definition. Finally there were matches in a small field. Tomorrow, last rehearsal in Valdebebas before Seville, with 15 minutes open to the media and subsequent press conference of Zizou.

Whoever coach you put in, if the players won’t follow, the success wouldn’t come.

But it’s up to us as a team to deal with it and hopefully in the coming weeks, we’ll figure out where we’ll end up.”ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Donegal dairy farmers are to get the bonus before Christmas.Fine Gael Minister Joe McHugh says the funding top up of €1,350 for dairy farmers in Donegal will be an important boost at the end of what has been a difficult year.“This direct aid package for the dairy and pig sectors of €27.4 million, unveiled by Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney, is made up of €13.7 million of EU funding and a further €13.7 million in matching national funding.“The payment will be made on a flat rate basis and means that dairy farmers in Donegal will each receive approximately €1,350. This top-up funding is to be made to farmers before Christmas and I know it will be an important boost to them, particularly as many are experiencing cash-flow problems.“€1 million of the overall package will be reserved for the pig sector and how this will be divided will be decided shortly.” There will also be an additional €800 top-up for young dairy farmers in Donegal which will be made in early 2016.“This has been a very difficult year for the dairy and pigmeat sectors in Ireland and I know that farmers here in Donegal have been feeling the effects of the market downturn. Speaking to farmers I know that cash-flow has been a particular problem.“Minister Coveney has been working to ensure that dairy and pigmeat farmers in Donegal receive additional support. In September he presented a six point plan to the EU Commissioner and his EU ministerial colleagues, much of which has been taken on board, including:· an improved PSA scheme for both SMP and pigmeat, which will include longer periods for storage as well as the improved aid rates · the re-introduction of PSA for cheese· a provision allowing 70% advance in the single farm payment· a provision of increased funding for promotion· the provision of almost €14 million in targeted direct aid for farmers which can be matched nationally.“The additional funding announced today for farmers in Donegal comes on top of the 70% advance payment also agreed as part of this package and which has now delivered over €1 billion to farmers in the last two months. “There is no doubt that these are difficult times for dairy and pigmeat farmers in Donegal but Minister Coveney and this Government are committed to continuing to work for them. Fine Gael has a long term plan to keep the recovery going and part of this plan is to ensure we support and assist our farmers, who are the backbone of this country and our economy.”DONEGAL’S DAIRY FARMERS TO GET TOP-UP OF €1,350 FOR CHRISTMAS was last modified: December 10th, 2015 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:bonuscashdairy farmersJoe McHugh read more

The early winning created confidence, but the Bruins say it their success goes deeper than results. Several players said more fun during the week carries over to better play on Saturdays. “We play together as a team more (than in 2004),” UCLA sophomore receiver Brandon Breazell said. “We’re more like a family this year. We’re together on and off the field. I see a lot more smiles. After guys make big plays, and we’re celebrating, there are teeth all over the field. It’s a good feeling.” New security measures Wazzu officials announced a change in postgame procedures, blocking off the walkway the visiting team uses to get to thelocker room, which is a couple of hundred yards away from the field. The move comes in the wake of UCLA strong safety Jarrad Page telling the Daily News earlier this week fans shouted racial remarks at him duringthe Bruins’ 2003 visit. “When all visiting team personnel arrives at their lockerroom, we willopen access to the sidewalks,” Wazzu assistant athletic director John David Wicker said.
