Valencia’s Dani Parejo scored from the penalty spot in the 87th after Barcelona substitute Ousmane Dembele rashly fouled Jose Gaya in the box four minutes after going on. Ter Stegen almost stopped the spot kick, which squirmed under him and over the line.“We played a good match today, too bad we were missing our finishing touch,” Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia Toral said.SEVILLA COMEBACKMidfielder Steven N’Zonzi scored from long range to complete Sevilla’s comeback from two goals down and draw with Villarreal 2-2 in a match where both sides ended with 10 men.Manuel “Nolito” Agudo made up for a missed penalty by pulling one back for Sevilla in the 78th. N’Zonzi struck four minutes later.Daniel Rabaseda opened the scoring for Villarreal and then set up Carlos Bacca to make it 2-0 after Sevilla’s Wissam Ben Yedder was sent off with back-to-back bookings in the 61st.Nolito’s poor spot kick came after a handball by Jaume Costa, which earned him a sending-off with a second yellow card.The stalemate left Villarreal in sixth place and Sevilla in seventh.DEPORTIVO HAS HOPEAdrian Lopez scored twice as Deportivo La Coruna won at Athletic Bilbao 3-2 and moved to within five points of safety.

(AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)BARCELONA, Spain — Barcelona set a Spanish league record of 39 consecutive games unbeaten on Saturday, as it rebounded from its humbling Champions League exit by defeating Valencia 2-1 to continue its march to the domestic title.Philippe Coutinho set up goals for Luis Suarez and Samuel Umtiti to help Barcelona establish the new Liga milestone. The feat came four days after the Catalan club squandered a 4-1 first-leg advantage by losing at Roma 3-0 and failed to reach Europe’s final four for the third year in a row.ADVERTISEMENT “We wanted to reaffirm the great league campaign we are having after the setback the other day,” Suarez said. “Records exist so you can break them, but the most important thing was to win considering the mood surrounding the team, which we know wasn’t good. Our fans were angry.”While Valencia kept Lionel Messi in check, Coutinho unlocked the visiting defense by threading a pass to meet Suarez’s run in the 15th minute. The striker used one touch of his right boot to slot a low shot past goalkeeper Neto for his 23rd goal in the competition this season.The speed of Valencia’s Goncalo Guedes caused Barcelona trouble throughout the first half. The Portuguese winger threatened with three strikes before striker Rodrigo Moreno forced Marc-Andre ter Stegen to parry his shot off the bar after Valencia’s pressure caused an errant pass by Barcelona’s goalkeeper.Gerard Pique hustled back to clear a goal-bound shot by Moreno early in the second half after Umtiti slipped and gifted Valencia a perfect opportunity to equalize.But the France center back gave Barcelona the cushion it needed in the 51st when Umtiti headed Coutinho’s corner kick onto the turf and in off the hands of Neto.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ With its hopes of a rare treble ended in Italy, Ernesto Valverde’s side stayed well on course for a double in Spain after dealing third-place Valencia its first loss in 10 rounds.“These three points are gold,” Valverde said. “Sometimes this club’s fans tend to get downcast easily and when there is a loss like Tuesday’s everything falls apart.

3. Ruben Loftus-Cheek – A tall, combative midfielder in the ilk of Nemanja Matic, Loftus-Cheek has been earmarked as a future star already purely based on his size. He has two senior substitute appearances this season; one in the Champions League and also during Chelseas 1-1 draw with Manchester City in January. Now that their first Premier League title since 2010 has been secured, can we expect to see Jose Mourinho blood some academy products into the Chelsea first team over the remaining weeks of the season?The Portuguese manager has typically adorned a reluctant approach to squad rotation this campaign, with 10 of his first-team regulars starting 25 league games this season – and only Diego Costa falling short after being curtailed by injuries.In games when the Blues’ boss has rotated he has paid the price, none more so than when they were stunned by Bradford City in the FA Cup.Mourinho’s stubborness since that defeat has been well documented as he holds only a select group of his players in the highest esteem, which has been represented on the pitch.Yet, with no real incentive to play, some Blues’ fans are imploring Mourinho to give some of Chelsea’s promising next generation a chance, particularly after an extremely profitable youth campaign.Chelsea’s Under-21s are in the mix to win the Under-21 Premier League, whilst their Under-19s were crowned European champions after claiming the UEFA Youth League title.As a result, talkSPORT has looked at five possible candidates at Mourinho’s disposal who could make the step up over the coming weeks… 5. Dominic Solanke – to find out which other exciting starlets could get game time this season, click the yellow arrow above, right! – A genuine 35 goal-a-season man, Solanke has taken the Chelsea youth teams by storm this campaign. He reached the landmark during the Blues 3-1 victory over Manchester City in the FA Youth Cup final first leg last month, and became Chelseas youngest ever Champions League player as a substitute last autumn. 5 4. Andreas Christensen – A prominent member of the UEFA Youth League winning side, Christensen is a versatile defender who can be deployed at right back or in the centre. He made his full senior debut by playing 90 minutes against Shrewsbury in the League Cup in October, and did the same in the infamous Bradford defeat. 5 5 5 5 2. Nathan Ake – Ake is already a Europa League winner with Chelsea after being an unused substitute in the 2013 final and is a Blues veteran in comparison with the others with four senior appearances. He spent part of this season on loan at Reading, but produced an assist or Eden Hazard on his Champions League debut for the Blues against Maribor in October. 1. Isaiah Brown – Brown is the Premier Leagues second youngest player of all time, actually appearing against Chelsea for West Brom in 2013. He captained the Under-19s to their UEFA Youth League win and was named man of the match in the final after scoring two goals. Jose Mourinho said, after Brown scored a brace in a pre-season game for the Blues, that he should be blamed if the 18-year-old doesnt become an England international under his management.
Juventus defender Alex Sandro is wanted by Chelsea Juventus will reject all offers for Chelsea target Alex Sandro…unless he demands to leave.The left-back is on Antonio Conte’s summer shopping list this summer as the Italian looks to strengthen his squad.Chelsea have already reportedly had a £52.5million bid rejected for the Brazilian, with Juventus holding out for £61m instead.But now, according to Tuttosport, the Italian champions will also not sanction a deal unless Sandro explicitly demands to go.Juventus are desperate to keep the full-back and they have offered him a new deal with improved terms.Chelsea, meanwhile, are said to be willing to comeback with an offer close to £61m and a bumper pay day for Sandro.However, Juve will reject that proposal unless they are told by the 26-year-old he wants to leave. 1

18 July 2013 The next phase in Africa’s growth must be industrialisation, with the continent producing its own value-added goods, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies told the South Africa-European Union business forum in Pretoria on Wednesday. “There’s a growing and significant recognition that Africa’s time has come, that Africa is part of the new growth frontier,” Davies told the forum, held on the eve of the 6th SA-EU summit scheduled for Thursday. “The African continent has performed relatively well during the [2008-09 global financial] crisis, but more significantly the African continent is positioning itself to make some very important decisions which we believe will lead the continent to a new phase of growth and development. “We can no longer afford to locate ourselves in the global value chains as producers and exporters of raw materials and importers of finished products.”Infrastructure constraints Referring to the negotiations on the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, Davies said: “We are saying that we need to address issues of real economy co-operation.” He noted that the recent UN Conference on Trade and Development report on African trade pointed to the need to the necessary infrastructure put in place to connect African economies with each other. “Africa is poised to industrialise, the industrialisation requires regional integration and to address the infrastructure constraints,” the minister said, adding that there had been increasing interest in the continent from existing as well as new potential trade and investment partners.SA’s largest trading partner Davies said the EU remained South Africa’s largest trading partner, which was also true to a large extent to the rest of the continent as a whole. For example, South Africa was seeing an increase in investment from companies that operated in the financial sector. “We continue as South Africa to support, encourage, welcome, work actively with potential investors,” he said. Also speaking at Wednesday’s forum, European Commissioner for Trade Karel De Gucht said the Trade, Development, and Cooperation Agreement (TDCA) between South Africa and the EU had been a success. In terms of the TDCA, South Africa has duty-free access to the European market for about 65% of its agricultural products and in return for that the country receives more than 90% from the EU. “Trade between the EU and South Africa has increased steadily since 2000 – from €26-billion to €46-billion today. What is maybe more important is that trade has been diverse and has continued to diversify further as new business opportunities were created,” De Gucht said. The EU remains the biggest investor in South Africa, with EU countries being the source of 88% of foreign direct investment stock in SA. Source: SAnews.gov.za
Events may be hosted May 2, 2020 through December 31, 2020. The final date to submit the cache page of your Community Celebration Event is December 17, 2020. Beginning today, eligible geocachers can apply to host Community Celebration Events in 2020. These events will enable cachers around the world to commemorate the 20th anniversary of geocaching with a new icon and souvenir. Between Community Celebration Events and the Geocaching 20th Anniversary Celebration in Seattle, 2020 is shaping up to be quite a party! To be eligible to apply to host a Community Celebration Event, you must meet the following criteria: Activity: You must have logged a cache within the past six (6) months (between June 2, 2019 and December 2, 2019). I don’t qualify to host a Community Celebration Event, what can I do? The applicants selected to host a Community Celebration Event will be notified via email between January and October 2020. If you misplace the email, the Event page will be created on your Geocaching.com account and will display in your list of unpublished caches. Applicants who are not selected will not be notified. Here are answers to some common questions: This cache type was originally known as the Lost and Found Event Cache. It was created for events that were hosted by geocachers from April 30, 2010 to May 3, 2010 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of geocaching. Just 362 Lost and Found Events were held, so a very limited number of cachers earned the icon. We’re excited that many thousands more cachers will have a chance to celebrate a big anniversary and get the redesigned icon in 2020! Winners must host events between May 2, 2020 and December 31, 2020. Events must be a minimum of two hours, and cannot overlap with events associated with a Mega- or Giga-Event. For more guidance, see the Help Center article on Community Celebration Events. I just logged drafts for finding a cache or attending Events or CITOs, why don’t I qualify to host this Event? All logging activity must have occurred prior to December 2, 2019 to qualify. Although the date of your draft may have been before this date, the date you submitted the draft is ineligible. We believe there will be a lot of excitement about publishing these events. We want to distribute the effort of reviewing them by community volunteer reviewers over time. And we hope this helps minimizes people choosing the same date and time for their event. Unfortunately, selected event hosts won’t be determined ahead of time, so we are unable to honor requests for cachers with a specific date in mind. We recommend hosting a regular Event Cache with your own celebration theme, instead. Community Celebration Events may be submitted for review up to six (6) months and no less than two (2) weeks in advance of your chosen Event date. How do I find a Community Celebration Event happening near me?We’re glad you asked! View a list of Community Celebration Events here.Share with your Friends:More How did you choose the number of Community Celebration Events to be released worldwide? You may not qualify to host this particular cache type, but you are still eligible to host a regular Event Cache with your own celebration theme! How long do I have to submit my Community Celebration Event Cache for review? If you meet the criteria, apply via the opt-in page by June 3, 2020. If you own multiple Geocaching.com accounts, please apply with only one account. Each month from January through October, at least 2,020 hosts will be randomly selected from those who opt-in (with geographic distribution). If selected, you will receive one of 20,200 or more Community Celebration Events! All official community volunteers (reviewers, moderators, and translators), and the primary accounts for all 2020 Mega- and Giga-Events will receive a Celebration Event. Since we’re turning 20 in the year 2020, we think the best way to celebrate is with more than 20,200 birthday parties around the world! To provide the best experience for all attendees and to prevent over-saturation, we’re offering a limited, special release of the icon. I just submitted my request for a Community Celebration Event Cache, when will I find out whether I receive one? Attendance: You must have attended at least two (2) Events or CITOs within the last three (3) years (between December 2, 2016 and December 2, 2019). Why are you distributing 2,020 per month, instead of giving them all at once? I received the opportunity to host a Community Celebration Event Cache, how soon can I submit it to my reviewer for publishing? Geocaching is what you’ve made it. Entering into the 20th year of geocaching, we want to celebrate what’s most important: this community-driven game! I want to celebrate a geocaching anniversary on a specific date, what can I do?

Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now My last post of the year for three years running is a Balance Sheet.AssetsIn 2015, I decided to put my personal health first. I exercised almost every day in 2015. In July, I hired a personal trainer and swapped writing at 5:00 AM every day for deadlifts, squats, floor press, and body weight exercises.I have eaten a vegetarian diet for a solid year, and on a lot of days, I have been “vegan until dinner.”I have taken up meditation and a spiritual practice with a teacher who has helped me see all the ways that I am my biggest obstacle.I have consistently been more patient, more compassionate, and more empathetic (even though my wife insists there is still a lot of room for growth).I finished editing my first book and agreed to a two-book deal with a major publisher (The books will be released in the Fall of 2016 and 2017).I had well over 1,000,000 page views here at The Sales Blog. I posted every day this year, making it six years running (Still minus those 13 days in Tibet.)With my mastermind group, I held my first live public event in Washington, DC.My greatest asset is my family. This year marked 20 years married to my best friend.Record sales in my businesses.DebitsEven though I am a vegetarian, I too often ate poorly. A lot of bad, easy-to-find food is vegetarian. I also haven’t done well with supplements, and I don’t drink nearly enough water.I haven’t treated time with the respect it deserves. Knowing how little you have, you shouldn’t waste a second.I let work get in the way of vacations because I wasn’t proactive enough in scheduling them.I haven’t planned my work well enough in advance. I didn’t delegate enough work. I didn’t automate enough work. And I didn’t eliminate enough work.I (still) haven’t moved fast enough on some opportunities.On balance, an excellent year.
