Although the head of a coach is the first to roll when things go wrong, no one doubts that his work is vital when the set goals are reached, although the glory is usually borne by footballers. Brian Clough, Guardiola, Mourinho, Rinus Michels and Ernst Happel, among others, are clear examples that the technicians can also leave their name in history regardless of the stars they have directed in their teams. It is also Ottmar Hitzfeld, without which the current greatness of the Borussia Dortmund. His arrival in the city on the bank of the Ruhr In 1991, when the Borussers had not won a German league for more than 30 years, it changed the history of the black-yellow forever. Although so did a controversial decision by German television networks … In his first season at the helm of Dortmund, Hitzfeld was runner-up to the team and qualified for the UEFA of the following course. And here is one of the most important moments in Borusser history: German television had decided not to bet on any of the four German teams participating in that UEFA due to the low importance of the rivals that the draw had brought them. Therefore, it was decided to create a fund of 30 million marks (13 million euros) and the team that went the furthest would enter 85% of the money, and the rest would be divided equally between the other three representatives. That decision, along with Hitzfeld’s hand, which he put the team in the final, in which they lost to Juventus, served for the club of Westphalia fill his coffers and could establish the bases of a champion team. With that money he signed Riedle, Möller and Khöler, that together with men like Sämmer, and Chapuisat, signed a year earlier, made Dortmund a fearsome team. In the final, Hitzfeld surprised Juventus with his planteamiento. Far from trying to fight in the middle of the field, he gave the initiative to the Italian team, more accustomed to reaching the rival area by pushing than by mastering the ball. Dortmund for its part, He changed his usual system to play with three centrals and two lanes and be better able to come out on the counterattack on the wing., especially on the left, where he was Heinrich, the best player in the final. With this staging, Borussia went 2-0 in the first half thanks to two goals from Riedle and the final was seen for sentencing. Del Piero and Rickens they left the final score at 3-1.That was the first Champions League for Dortmund, which since then has always been considered one of the great clubs on the continent. For Hitzfeld, that was the first step to equalize Ernst Happel and become the second coach to win the European Cup with two different clubs: he would do it again in 2001. So much so that With that block Dortmund became a giant in Germany and won two consecutive Bundesligas in 1995 and 1996. It remained to make the leap in Europe. And boy did he give it. In spite of fall to Atlético in the group stage (the rojiblancos were the only ones who defeated Borussia in that Champions League), Hitzfeld’s team went on to fourth as a group second, being the top scorer in the first phase of the tournament, with 14 goals. In rooms, Auxerre was no rival (4-1 overall) nor does Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United, whom he beat 1-0 in both semifinal matches. Fate wanted to give Dortmund a chance at a rematch after the defeat in UEFA and Juventus by Marcello Lipp awaited him again in the final, which was held in Munichi. In its ranks it had a Zidane and a Del Piero that they were in the best years of their career.Juventus was on the way to achieving its second Scudetto In a row, he was the reigning champion of the Champions League and his career in the tournament had been spectacular. In the semifinals, Zidane played one of the best matches that he is remembered against Ajax, who together with Juve was considered at that time the best team in Europe. All bookmakers gave Italians favorites, who lived the sweetest moments in their history after the years of Platini and Trapattoni.
Madam Oretha Saylee, a mother from Grand Gedeh County, was ecstatic when her little daughter, club-footed from birth, was successfully treated for this crippling and embarrassing condition. The child’s feet are now completely normal, and she can walk just as easily and comfortably as other children.We are happy for Madam Saydee and her daughter, as we are for all the 700 or more children who have been helped by a local, faith-based non-governmental organization, known as FACORC, or Faith Clinical Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center.The organization recently helped organize World Clubfoot Day for the first time in Liberia. Our reporter William Harmon, in his article published last Friday, said FACORC, has since its establishment in 2011, trained more than 30 specialists to repair the deformity. The organization has so far treated over 700 children with the condition. FACORC has satellite clinics in five of Liberia’s 15 counties.The organization’s Executive Director, Augustine B. Chiewolo, told our reporter that children in Liberia with club-foot “have been neglected for far too long.” He appealed to the GOL to pay greater attention to children with correctable clubfoot deformity and subsidize the Liberian clubfoot program by integrating clubfoot treatment into all health facilities across the country.We strongly feel that this appeal to the GOL is not only reasonable, but urgent and we hope that Health Minister Bernice Dahn will embrace the program and create the policies for the MOH to take ownership of it. The MOH’s intervention should not consist of policies only but it should join FACORC in expanding the clinical response to this repairable deformity, especially at infancy, so that children throughout the country may no longer have to go through life with this awful condition. What is it, really? Clubfoot is what Liberians have always called “bow legged” people, especially children. In the 1950s a prominent footballer named Tugbeh was afflicted with that condition, but it did not bother him. The handsome Tugbeh went about with a smile on his face, through Trinity Pro-Cathedral (now Trinity Cathedral) and Sunday School and went on to the United States where he trained as a water engineer. He later married and he and his wife were blessed with two beautiful daughters. But as we well know, not everybody with a problem, congenital or otherwise, handles it the same way. Some people, like Tugbeh, take their problems in stride, while others take them as serious impediments, and become doubly handicapped by them. We refer to a typical case of how people put a positive spin on their problems. Look at our amputee athletes. They have represented Liberia in many parts of the world and are now poised to do so again in the USA, where they have pending games in August. We hope that the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Liberia Football Association and all Liberians will give the amputees every encouragement and support so that they will ably represent Liberia in those games and bring back trophies.At this point, we recall another great Liberian who, like the people at FACORC, has been helping children in severe medical distress. Many people know Mrs. Charlesetta Williams who for years has been taking children to Ghana, Germany, the United States and elsewhere to get them cured of very serious ailments, including closed anuses, heart disease, throats destroyed by accidental caustic soda ingestion, etc. These conditions, like clubfoot, are serious impediments to the affected children’s normal existence. So we commend the FACORC people, as well as Mrs. Williams and all others who are reaching out to children in distress. Dr. Dahn, should see the advantage to MOH being actively involved in promoting and supporting individuals and institutions that are successfully intervening in the lives of Liberian children in distress and thereby shouldering some of its important responsibilities.We close by reminding MOH, Ministry of Gender and Children’s Protection, Ministry of Education and the entire government and all Liberians to remember the Ebola orphans and children who are victims of rape and other abuses and do what is required to assist them to move confidently and progressively on in school and in life.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A 41-year-old Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) woman was slapped with fraud and damage to property charges before being taken to the Linden Magistrate’s Court.Latoya Light of 36 Stewart Path, Christianburg, Wismar, appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman on charges which stated that she obtained two payments of $40,000 from Denny Neblet in October 2018 by pretending that she was in a position to sell a plot of land to him.The second charge stated that she damaged the VC’s chain-link fence valued $5000. However, the self-employed single mother denied the charges. She was represented by Attorney Leslyn Charles, who made an application for reasonable bail. The Attorney noted that her client has been cooperating with the Police since the charges were instituted. The Magistrate set bail for the charge of damage to property in the sum of $20,000 and on obtaining monies under false pretense to $40,000. The cases will continue on December 19.
Analysts wonder whether the company can sustain its performance, especially as rivals take aim at the once nearly invisible competitor. “They have been really clever, but they also benefited from fortunate timing,” DisplaySearch President Ross Young said. Even CEO Wang concedes it might be impossible to stay on top. “I think it’s going to be a major battle for us to maintain our spot,” Wang said. “My goal is to be in the top three for the year. I never expected we would hit the No. 1 spot in the second quarter.” The cornerstone of Vizio’s strategy has been selling at warehouse club stores such as Sam’s Club and Costco, which can pass volume discounts along to consumers. By avoiding retailers that typically add as much as 30 percent to the price of a TV, Vizio has escaped the retail-channel conflicts that can shackle larger brands, Young said. If a major brand sells a flat-panel TV through Best Buy for $1,999, for instance, and then sells the same set at Costco, it can’t pass along a lower margin to consumers without angering Best Buy, Young said. “Vizio is able to pass along the lower margins at the club channel because they don’t have those conflicts,” he said. That strategy has led to Vizio steadily increasing its market share over the past two years, according to research company iSuppli. Still, the sudden jump to No. 1 was the result of one-time events that are unlikely to be repeated. Some retailers boosted inventory from one week to three in reaction to worldwide flat-panel supply problems. In addition, Vizio added two huge retail clients in the second quarter – Sears and Circuit City – boosting its normal deliveries by more than 150,000 units. Meanwhile, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation’s largest retailer, added new models to its existing line of Vizio offerings. Wang was a supplier of computer monitors in 1989 when he began selling screens to Gateway Inc. In 2002, he launched his own company, then called V Inc., with $600,000 from friends and a mortgage on his Newport Beach home. But instead of immediately entering the TV market, he was persuaded by Gateway co-founder Ted Waitt to serve as an adviser on manufacturing and sales strategies in its bid to sell TVs in its retail stores. “Being small, you don’t have a lot of choice,” Wang said. “When someone knocks on the door, you say yes.” When Gateway exited the TV business and shuttered all its retail stores in 2004, Wang struck out on his own. He changed the name of the company to Vizio and adopted the slogan “Where vision meets value.” What he took from Gateway was the emphasis on marketing to cost-conscious consumers and the strategy of not relying on a single supplier or assembler, but outsourcing widely to keep costs down. “I’m a geek. I love technology. But I believe technology shouldn’t be super expensive,” Wang said. Today, the company runs a lean operation, with only 85 corporate employees. About 10 percent of assembly work is done in Mexico, the rest in Asia. The company plans to do more assembly in Mexico but so far has no plans to bring the work into the United States, as low-cost rival Syntax-Brillian Corp. has. So in that way, Vizio won’t take on the all-American feel of former American TV stalwarts such as Zenith or RCA. Last year, Vizio spent about $5 million on marketing to build its brand. The company has boosted its ad budget to $35 million to lure sports fans, who are big buyers of high-def sets. Vizio has also broadened its line, offering high-definition sets in the highest quality and adding the kind of high-tech features normally found on more expensive name-brand sets. Wang thinks Vizio will benefit as cable and satellite companies boost their high-def content and consumers replace their analog TVs with digital. “I believe we’ll still enjoy the growth rate we’ve been having the past 12 months because this segment will explode,” Wang said. Young agrees, adding that that people might buy a more expensive set for the living room but will likely look for cheaper flat-panel TVs to replace sets in other parts of the house. “The strategy has legs,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Aided by a few one-time boosts in retailer inventories, Vizio grabbed 12 percent of the flat-panel market in the second quarter. That was more than four times its share in the year-ago quarter and enough to propel the private company, which had been the nation’s 15th-largest flat-panel TV supplier in the second quarter of 2005, past rivals such as Sony Corp., Samsung and Sharp Corp., according to market researcher DisplaySearch. Vizio has also broadened its offerings, adding more full-featured sets along with basic models. Vizio now offers four 42-inch LCD sets, for instance, ranging in price from $1,399 for a fully loaded set to a $979 model, which offers lower resolution and fewer features. A 40-inch LCD set from Sony ranges from $1,279 to $2,069 on Amazon.com. Cory Porter had never heard of Vizio before walking into a Costco in May to look at more established brands. After researching customer comments and reviews online, he decided to take a chance and bought a 42-inch model. “I wanted to be sure if I decided to go with the cheaper version that it was good quality as well,” said Porter, 31, of Washington, D.C. “I was pretty nervous about that, to be honest.” Staying No. 1 will be a challenge for Vizio, however. Upstart American TV maker Vizio Inc. has been nipping for three years at the heels of household names such as Sony and Samsung. Quietly selling its affordable line of flat-panel sets in wholesale club stores instead of electronics retailers, it knocked its foreign competitors from the top spot in the second quarter to become the largest seller of flat-panel TV sets in North America. It is too early to say the company will bring an American brand back to the top ranks of TV makers for good. But Irvine-based Vizio is poised to benefit from a variety of trends, including the rising popularity of flat-panel sets and the need for all Americans to upgrade to a digital TV by the federal government’s February 2009 deadline. And CEO William Wang’s experience as a supplier and then consultant to PC maker Gateway Inc. convinced him that consumers who might spend big for a feature-laden set for the living room would want a more affordable alternative to replace sets in other rooms.
Antonio Conte’s former Juventus team-mate Alessandro Del Piero has insisted he can build on Chelsea’s Premier League title win, despite rumours of him returning to Italy.Conte’s Blues were confirmed as champions on Friday night as they beat West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns, a year after the club had finished tenth in the top-flight.It’s been an impressive turnaround, and managerless Serie A side Inter Milan will have taken note of his triumph, as speculation links them with a move to lure him back to his native Italy.Del Piero, though, believes Conte has the potential to build a dynasty at Stamford Bridge, should he wish to stay in west London.The legendary Italian forward told talkSPORT: “There are a lot of rumours regarding Inter Milan and, honestly, I don’t know. He’s just arrived in England. I think he has the possibility to build an incredible story there.“I don’t know what is going on, first of all, in his heart and then what the prospects of the teams are. Let’s see. By the way, it’s not a bad choice.”And Del Piero, who helped Juventus win the Champions League in 1996 alongside Conte, praised his compatriot’s achievements, which mirrored his first campaign as boss of the Old Lady in 2011/12.“I think he did amazing work,” he added. “Chelsea were in the same condition as Juventus, who had finished seventh the table, and then we won the title. This is what has happened again, its history repeating in a different country.“He’s a great guy, and an amazing coach. I’m happy that, straight away, in his first year he can show his best and keep Chelsea at the top of the league, and probably next year top of the Champions League.”

Patrick Burke, a meteorologist in Norman, Okla., said little if any rain was forecast for that state over the next seven days. Strong wind and higher-than-normal temperatures were expected, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Cross Plains, a working-class town about 115 miles west of Fort Worth, lost about 90 homes and several other buildings Tuesday. Two deaths were reported there, and another occurred in Cooke County, near the Texas-Oklahoma line. In Oklahoma, a man was killed in a blaze in Hughes County. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Ashwood said officials were worried about high winds expected to rake the state Sunday and again Tuesday. Combined with low humidity, “that’s a recipe for disaster,” he said. Fire crews “have done an outstanding job working tirelessly and without sleep,” Bryan County Emergency Manager Tim Cooke said. “We’re trying to get it suppressed before Sunday, when humidities are supposed to be less than 20 percent and temperatures will be in the high 70s.” In Texas, most rubble in the hard-hit community of Cross Plains was no longer smoldering Friday, but new blazes started in Palo Pinto and Lamar counties and along the Hood and Johnson county line, said Traci Weaver, a Texas Forest Service spokeswoman. Those fires were contained Friday afternoon, but officials prepared for more possible blazes this weekend if the weather does not change, she said. OKLAHOMA CITY – Firefighters on Friday contained many of the wildfires that raced through Texas and Oklahoma and killed four people, but officials worried that forecasts for more warm, dry and windy weather could set the stage for additional blazes. Oklahoma and much of Texas remained under burning bans, particularly for fireworks, because authorities believe the fires were mostly set by people ignoring fire bans and burning trash, shooting fireworks or throwing out cigarettes. In southern Oklahoma’s Bryan County, a grass fire that has scorched nearly 10,000 acres and destroyed 10 homes near the small town of Achille broke containment lines Friday morning, but firefighters aided by a water-dropping helicopter were able to bring it back under control later, Achille Fire Chief Dean Collins said. “It’s ridiculous how dry we are out here,” said Albert Ashwood, director of the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management.
