Coach Gary Alexander says that he’s been happy with how players have responded to practices despite the occasional hiccup.“I think the practices have all been going good, good tempo, pretty good attention to what we’re doing,” he explains. “Sloppiness is of course a little bit there, but everybody is pretty enthused. We’re still a little short on numbers, but it looks good.”He adds that while the team does have goals of where they want to be come the season opener in Dawson Creek, what’s more important is working with at the time.- Advertisement -“It’s not a matter of where we’re hoping to have them, it’s where we will be at the time. The regular season is for ironing out all the kinks,” he says. “Training camp is for getting them in a little better shape, and see what you have, and who will play with who. I think we’ll be at a fairly decent level by that time.In the practices ahead, Alexander says the team will continue to up the pace of the practices, while getting the players used to how the coaches want various schemes played out on the ice.“We’ve got another two weeks at least to work on stuff, so we’ll up the tempo, we’ll try to get a little more system in as we move along here,” he maintains. “[I’m] not too concerned with anything in particular, just getting moving, and getting the enthusiasm up.”Advertisement Over the next number of practices, the Huskies will look at pairing up players as they try and figure out their line combinations for the upcoming year. The squad will return to the rink for another practice Tuesday evening.

She also said he spoke of children not having transportation to school and how food was provided to the elderly last. “He talked about the place like he was living in a prison camp,” she said, noting that security guards line the remote community. “He feels like they’re being treated as pariahs – being picked up \ and put somewhere so no one has to look at them. “There’s a sense that they want to hide \ so they aren’t faced with what they’ve done and what’s happened,” she continued. “It broke my heart.” Nguyen said while it is “depressing” to think how much more needs to be done for Katrina victims, she does feel good about the things the law students were able to accomplish. “It’s helpful to see how much people who are exploited or left vulnerable by their circumstances can be helped by attorneys,” she said. “I didn’t see that in Los Angeles. Seeing it so blatantly in Mississippi, that’s something I can take away from that – knowing that we as attorneys can actually make a difference in people’s lives.” email@example.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4496 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Four area students from the USC School of Law spent their semester break using their legal education to assist Hurricane Katrina victims in still-devastated towns along the Gulf Coast. Stacie Torres, 25, of Sierra Madre said she was shocked to see skeletons of formerly majestic mansions and homes for miles and miles along the coast near Biloxi, Miss. “Mississippi has kind of fallen by the wayside,” said Torres, who worked with a public interest firm called the Mississippi Center for Justice while in Biloxi. “Piers where boats used to be tied up are just concrete pillars and shards of wood in the water. There is still clothing in trees, tattered flags flying and water hoses wrapped around trees.” Despite feeling as though they were “barely chipping at the tip of the iceberg,” as Torres put it, about 550 law students – 30 of whom were from USC – came to New Orleans and Biloxi to lend their legal knowledge to firms that needed people on the ground to research and gather information from the locals affected by Katrina. Along with Torres, Tien Nguyen, 25, from Cerritos, and Jessica Charles, 23, from Pasadena, worked with the center, interviewing people and bringing the information gathered back to the organization for use in future class-action lawsuits. The major problem, Charles explained, is that many of those stricken by the hurricane are of a lower-income bracket and unaware of their legal rights. “A lot of them are living in \ trailers and need assistance moving into houses,” she said. “They need to know their rights when speaking to landlords. People’s rents have doubled and quadrupled during the storm. People need someone to take a stand and talk to people for them.” Most deplorable to USC law student Elizabeth Gonzales, 29, from Pico Rivera, was the way in which the roughly 2,000 residents of Renaissance Village – a FEMA trailer park located in Baker, La., on the outskirts of Baton Rouge – were treated. Gonzalez, who was sent to the trailer park by the New Orleans’ NAACP Gulf Coast Advocacy Center to interview residents about their jobs, said one man told her that those who complained about the living conditions were kicked out.

Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes joined the Weekend Sports Breakfast to discuss his new solo album, along with the latest Manchester United news.Among a host of topics, the 38-year-old told Micky Quinn and Georgie Bingham his thoughts on Radamel Falcao, Louis van Gaal and the club’s top four aspirations.On Wayne Rooney, the huge Man United fan said: “I can see him playing in that Bobby Charlton position, just behind the front two, and maybe even a bit deeper eventually.“I just think it’s a bit too soon now though. He could end up there maybe in a few years, when he gets into his early 30s. It would be a great role for him.”You can listen to the Weekend Sports Breakfast show every Saturday and Sunday morning from 7-11am only on talkSPORT
Seven years ago Abidal, playing at the time for Barcelona and France, had received a transplant as he battled liver cancer.In the decision, seen by AFP on Wednesday, a Barcelona judge found “it had been proved that there was new evidence against those investigated, so that the case can be reopened.”The Spanish prosecutor initially reopened investigations after Spanish media published tapes of the former Barca president, Sandro Rosell, suggesting that the club had illegally bought a liver for their defender.Abidal, who is now Barcelona’s sporting director, says his cousin Gerard Armand, who lives in France, was the donor. The latter said he had not received anything, “not a centime”, in exchange.The prosecutor asked that Armand undergo tests to prove that he had donated part of his liver.In October, the same judge drew criticism after ruling there was a “lack of evidence, just conjecture and suspicions” and declaring that it was impossible to force Armand to submit to a medical examination because under French law he could donate his organ.Prosecutors persisted and in reviewing the decision, the Barcelona magistrate noted possible anomalies in the donation procedure, pointing to the absence of a donor’s identity document in the medical file and “alleged irregularities” in the consent signed by the parties.That, in the judge’s opinion, constitutes “sufficient evidence of the alleged commission of the offence at the heart of the investigation” and justifies the continuation of investigations, such as the summoning of Armand as a witness.Barcelona, Abidal, Rosell and the Spanish organ donation organisation have always denied any wrongdoing.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eric Abidal’s liver transplant is again under the legal microscope © AFP/File / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain, Jan 30 – Spanish authorities have re-opened a probe into ex-Barcelona player Eric Abidal’s 2012 liver transplant after confirming that new evidence suggested a trafficked organ was used, according to a legal decision seen by AFP on Wednesday.The courts have previously looked into Abidal’s transplant because of doubts about the identity of the donor.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg Tottenham target Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set for a move to Bayer Leverkusen.Spurs were linked with a loan swoop for the Bayern Munich midfielder, who became the German side’s youngest ever Bundesliga player aged just 17 in 2012.Hojbjerg spent the second half of last season on loan at Augsburg and Bayern are keen for him to test himself on loan at a high level, with a move to the Premier League thought to be an option.But Bild are reporting that Leverkusen are likely to win the race for his signature on a season-long loan deal, with the offer of Champions League football tempting both Bayern and Hojbjerg as they look to continue his development.And that means Spurs will have to look elsewhere if they want to beef up their midfield before the transfer window shuts. 1
