He’s in a very fortunate position.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow all the latest news on Tottenham“When his contract is up hopefully he will sit down with me and his family and decide what he wants to do.“Gareth is very happy over there.“And let’s be realistic: for most clubs he is out of their league, financially.“It is all well and good to say, ‘Give up that money and go and play somewhere else’, but it is not all about money. “It is about his lifestyle and his children, who have grown up in Madrid.”Spurs were rumoured to have made a late bid to land Bale during the January transfer window.Latest Spurs newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongIt is understood the club did not actually make a formal offer for their former star.However, Barnett did not deny the suggestion that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy headed to Madrid for talks with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.Asked if Spurs made an approach, he said: “No. [Levy] may have [visited Madrid], it’s not for me to say whether he did or didn’t.” Gareth Bale is so bored he does bottle flip challenge on the Real Madrid benchlast_img read more

Area girls urged to tackle careers in math, science

first_imgduring which they had the opportunity to hear from women who work in science-based or math-based jobs that require advanced degrees. “I loved the idea of flying planes like that in the Air Force,” said Garfias, 13, who attends Eastmont Intermediate School in Montebello. “It’s so cool.” Zusy, who is a flight test engineer at Edwards Air Force Base, demonstrated her flight gear to the eighth-graders, telling them how the G-force from flying in the jets forces the blood away from the heart and brain. The “G-suits” that the pilots and engineers wear squeeze their legs and stomachs to keep the blood where it should be. The “Top Gun” helmets have an airway mask that forces air into their lungs “in case we forget to breath in the turns,” she said. Tall and thin with long blond hair, Zusy didn’t match the typical image of a flight test engineer. But her highly specialized job requires years of physics, math, engineering and science – subjects she has always loved, she said. Her job is to plan and guide tests for the F-16s. Usually, she rides in the back seat of the plane and communicates information to the pilot about what tests to perform. A very male-dominated field, Zusy said she was the only female engineer in her entire college ROTC program and now is only one of two women in a squadron with 30 men. “They think it’s a man’s world,” Zusy told the girls. “They think they’re so cool, but there’s a girl in the back seat who can do it just as well. It’s tough, but I love my job so much.” Zusy said she hopes some day to be an astronaut and said the best way to achieve that was through the Air Force. Sue Turco, a board member of the AAUW’s Whittier chapter, said women had three possible career paths when she was entering adulthood; teacher, secretary or nurse. “We hope that by exposing the girls to math and science professions, they’ll pursue those careers and hopefully go further in their education,” Turco said. “We hope they’ll go beyond just the traditional fields.” Other professionals who spoke included an FBI agent, a project scientist from Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, physicians, an astrophysicist and more. The conference also provided girls with information on the types of classes they should be taking to improve their chances of getting into colleges. pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But after listening to 2nd Lt. Erin Zusy talk about handling “3 to 4 Gs” in an F-16 fighter jet, Garfias may now gear herself for more physics and engineering classes when she gets to high school. That idea would please organizers from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) who held its 14th annual Math/Science Conference for eighth-grade girls Friday at Rio Hondo College.

Public input now needed on proposed Fort St. John boundary extension

first_img“I think it’s important to have that conversation moving forward, because this [process] can be confusing,” adds Ackerman, “so we want to make sure that it’s as open and transparent as possible.” This time around, the City wants to make sure residents are kept in the loop from the beginning of the process, and are properly consulted. An informal public meeting has been scheduled for June 26 at the Lido Theatre, with a follow up meeting set for September 26. Mayor Lori Ackerman explains that the process is going to be different from the last time a boundary extension was attempted. “The intention of the meeting on the 26th is to ensure that the residents and the businesses impacted are able to come to staff and council and ask for whatever information, because the last time it was done, a package was created and sent out to them, and so this time it’ll be the other way around.”- Advertisement -Council formally withdrew its most recent application to include more land in its boundaries in February 2012, needing better clarification on the guidelines for boundary extension. The City has been considering the process since 2007, as a way to accommodate the growth of the city, clean up current borders, and more recently, manage the potential impacts of Site C. Some of the lands within this proposed expansion are expected to be developed if the dam is approved, so the City wants to incorporate them beforehand to ensure they are developed to its standards.A link will be set up on the City’s website similar to the Let’s Talk Site C campaign, for public comments and concerns. Advertisementlast_img read more

TRACK RECORD! OAKFIELD PARK 24-HOUR TRAIN RELAY RAISED €21,000 FOR IRISH CANCER SOCIETY

first_imgOakfield Park has announced that last weekend’s 24 hour sponsored train relay event has raised the amazing sum of €21,000.00 for the Irish Cancer Society.To begin the countdown at 6pm on Saturday the 4th May, Sir Gerry & Lady Heather Robinson drove the Duchess of Difflin Steam train on its first trip around the track. Oakfield Park then had the honour of welcoming 90-year-old Michael Gallen to take the footplate for the next lap. As a driver on the original Raphoe to Letterkenny line it was a real trip down memory lane for many people.The trains continued carrying passengers until darkness descended and the gardens were transformed by the running of the first ever, Midnight Express Train. This pre-booked trip was completely sold out with extra trains being added later. Passengers were treated to a candlelit tour with floating lanterns on the lakes and glowing braziers around the track.Alighting at the lakeside castle they were greeted with a glass of bubbly & delicious canapes, whilst being serenaded by the beautiful voice of local singer, Katie Porter. Once back on board the train again, all sorts of treats were in store. A “statue” came to life playing his saxophone, Robin Hood hung out of the trees calling on his trumpet and several ‘man-size’ ducks were to be seen chasing the carriages.Meanwhile back at the station the live music and drinks at the bar stayed lively into the wee small hours.Volunteer drivers kept the train going through the early hours of the morning and on into the dawn chorus. On Sunday the gates were flung open for the family fun day with more music, games & food, and of course more train trips. Huge numbers of home baked cakes were donated for sale & despite the rain Mango Catering’s Airstream Van had constant queues for their tasty burgers. Noel Cunningham oversaw the Grand Duck Race, when 400 ducks were launched to ‘swim’ across the lake. Winners of the Duck Race were Orla McBrearty, Georgina Wallace & Liam Lindsay. Other attractions included a live animal exhibit by Alcorns, from their tropical house and a taxidermy display of wild animals by Clonmany Wildlife Museum. Gareth Wilson from Raphoe correctly guessed that there were 74 balloons inside the Yellow Mini.At the end of the afternoon Noel Cunningham hosted the final draw for the business sponsorship prize and the three winners were:- Castleross Nursing & Retirement Village, Co. Monaghan; Vinehall Displays, Conference, Exhibition & Event Services, Dublin; & Panavision Ireland from Co. Wicklow. These three lucky companies have won a half day of personal business advice from Sir Gerry Robinson.At 6pm on Sunday 5th May, after a wonderful but exhausting day, the two trains were driven around on a final and very special lap of honour. All the passengers were ‘survivors’ from the Relay for Life Cancer Society.Oakfield Park would like to thank everyone who volunteered and gave so much energy and time to the event, not just over the weekend, but in all the days of hard work leading up to it. To all the suppliers who gave their goods and services free we are hugely grateful for their contributions, especially the many local ladies who donated such beautifully home baked cakes for sale. Thanks to the many musicians and singers who entertained our visitors. Finally our thanks to everyone who attended and turned the weekend into a wonderful community celebration to remember for years to come.  TRACK RECORD!
