Senhoras e senhores, o Corinthians até conseguiu marcar seu primeiro gol como mandante, graças a um chute fantástico de Jadson, mas a tão esperada vitória em casa, que não vem faz quase 104 anos, ainda não chegou. A situação é tão dolorosa que até a Croácia pode vencer no Itaquerão antes do Corinthians, já que o Coringão só jogará no estádio novamente depois da Copa do Mundo.
O caso tem deixado os dirigentes corintianos desesperados e não está descartada aretirada do estádio do Mundial e a realização de amistosos contra times fracos – exceto contra o Tolima -, para o Timão obter a tão esperada vitória como mandante.
É importante deixar claro: o Corinthians pode até mesmo ganhar todos os próximos jogos como mandante no Figueirão, mas a primeira vitória sempre será do Figueirense .
O Flamengo etá seguindo um caminho sem desvios rumo à Segundona. Por isso, sua mãe, a CBF, já estuda uma forma de tirar o clube dessa situação. Como é necessário haver quatro rebaixados no Brasileirão, a entidade máxima do futebol brasileiro marcou uma reunião de emergência para descrobri qual clube será enviado para a Série B no lugar do Rubro-Negro.
“Até a Chapecoense saiu da zona de rebaixamento e o Flamengo nada. Assim fica claro que precisamos agir. Para não ocorrer uma polêmica como o caso Heverton da Portuguesa, vamos nos preparar antes em vez de deixar tudo para a última hora, ou seja, para a última rodada”, disse um dirigente da CBF.
Todos os times do Brasileirão que lutam contra o rebaixamento já estão se preparando para não ficarem em 16° – posição que na teoria manteria o time na Séria A -, já que o Flamengo certamente estará no Z4 e é provável que o time mais próximo da zona da degola pague a conta.
Desesperado, o Flamengo deve tentar a contratação do advogado do Fluminense durante a Copa.
IN BRIEF | Emirates is considering allowing travellers to use their Qantas Frequent Flyer points to apply for upgrades on the Gulf carrier’s flights.
Under the current Qantas/Emirates partnership, passengers on Emirates flights can earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points and use them to redeem a reward ticket but not to upgrade from economy to business class or first class, as they can on Qantas.
However, according to The Financial Review, Emirates CEO Tim Clark is now considering whether to allow upgrades with points.
That said, Clark appears not entirely comfortable with the current points-based upgrade rates.
“What we found was perhaps – and this is no criticism of Qantas – they were a little bit more generous in the number of points you could use to upgrade” Clark said at the International Air Transport Association annual meeting in Doha, Qatar.

A boat which will be instrumental in the creation of Brisbane Airport’s second runway has arrived in the city.
Within days the purpose-built sand dredging boat, the Charles Darwin, will begin a 24 hour rolling cycle of sucking up sand from an undersea section of Moreton Bay, called Middle Banks, and ferrying it to Luggage Point, near Brisbane Airport – something it will do twice a day for nine to 12 months.
From Luggage Point the sand and water mix will be pumped five kilometres north through a pipeline to the low-lying piece of land to the immediate north of Brisbane’s main runway, building it up so the the new parallel runway can be built there before 2020.
The sand dredging component is a $400 million contract, won by Belgian company Jan de Nul, to compact 13 million cubic metres of sand to lay the solid base for the runway.
The dredging and compacting of the sand from Moreton Bay must be finished by mid- 2015 to let it settle until 2017, before the runway construction begins.
Brisbane Airport Corporation’s Parallel Runway project director Paul Coghlan last month said the strict conditions imposed on the dredging project would prevent problems.
“The completesite is surrounded by a bund wall with a watertight liner,” Mr Coghlan said.
“And, as an added measure, those liners are placed on the inside as well.”

Sem sucesso, a emissora não perde tempo e realiza pesquisa para identificar os problemas da novela da sete.
A baixa audiência de Geração Brasil preocupa a Globo. A novela de Izabel de Oliveira e Filipe Miguez ainda não pegou e tem uma média de 21 pontos na Grande São Paulo, índice considerado baixo para o horário das 19h.
O grupo de discussão – que costuma ser realizada no 30º capítulo – já foi realizado. O resultado da pesquisa auxiliará os autores numa provável mudança pontual na história, que vem sendo bastante criticada pelo excesso de tecnologia.

While the sun was shining above Brisbane early on Tuesday morning, residents wouldn’t have known it as thick fog blanketed the city.
The fog rolled in between 5.30am and 6am, Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Kevin Hutchins said, and is expected to completely clear by 10am at the latest.
Ipswich residents also woke to a foggy start. In Archerfield, the fog had already formed by 4am and it was clouding over the RAAF Base at Amberley by 1.30am.

Some arrivals at Brisbane Airport were also delayed as a small pocket of fog formed at the end of the runway.
An airport spokeswoman said some flights were diverted to the Gold Coast.
Mr Hutchins said a combination of weather conditions created a perfect environment for the fog to form.
“There’s quite a stable atmosphere, clear skies, and the ground temperature has approached that of the air,” he said.
“We had a dry-ish layer of air above the surface … [combine] that with the cool sky and it allows the ground to cool down and when the temperature approaches the dew point it gets closed to 100 per cent humidity.
“You also need quite light winds and clear skies.
“I wouldn’t call it unusual. We tend to get our fog in winter so it’s certainly not a rare thing.”
A top of 26
is predicted for Brisbane on Tuesday, with scattered showers expected to develop in the afternoon.
Mr Hutchins said there was a small chance of thunderstorms in the state’s south east later in the day.

Luis and Maria Sanchez know firsthand what happens when the relationship between a builder and a contractor goes south.
The Gungahlin couple took out a “winding up” application against Sublime Constructions last April, almost 12 months before the company finally went into administration in February this year with debts estimated at between $1.7 million and $2.5 million.
The possibility Sublime may have been trading while insolvent will be investigated by the liquidators, Vincents, as part of the standard winding up process.
The ACT Supreme Court ordered the company be placed in liquidation on March 24 after it had gone into administration on February 19, 2014.
Mrs Sanchez said the couple, who run a family owned and managed rendering business based in Mitchell, had sought legal advice after all their attempts to recover debts totalling more than $70,000 had been ignored for almost six months.
What ensued was a unique Canberra take on the Peter Sellers classic The Mouse That Roared.
It was just too much money for the family to lose and, as a result, times were very hard.
“Luis had to work extra hours and extra hard [to try to make up some of the money],” Mrs Sanchez said. “He is an honourable man and the pastor of a small church.
“We only asked for what is ours. We have three kids and there was a time when they all had shoes with holes. At $30 each [for a pair of shoes], that was $90 we didn’t have.’’
Their lawyer, Andrew Freer, of KJB Law, said the couple’s experience was not an isolated case.
“It is not uncommon for [the time lines] for credit demands to be extended out beyond normal terms [in the building industry],” he said.
Mr Freer said a “statutory demand was issued in the sum of $71,756.66”, that money was paid and the application to wind up was withdrawn in July last year.
Mrs Sanchez said her husband, who worked with his father, had been a renderer since the age of 15. Originally from Colombia, he had started his own business in Canberra to support his wife and their three children.
“We could not afford not to get the money from Sublime,” she said. “We owed money to other people [from operating the business] and we need for our names to be clean always. We are still paying off some of the debts from that time.
“It has been awful; my husband knew he was not the only one who was owed and there are still people who are waiting for their money. You win some and you lose some. We had to pay our own legal fees.”
The couple say
such as theirs are vulnerable when dealing with building companies – even smaller and middle-sized ones.
“They are big [by comparison]; we are small,” she said. “They [Sublime] would not have done this to a big company.”
Sublime does not fit the profile of a “fly-by-night” $2 company. It was established in November 2008 with paid up capital of $200,000. The two directors are Minh Phan (37) and Dee Vong Sisomphou (36) of Harrison and Forrest respectively.
While Mr and Mrs Sanchez have learnt from the experience and tightened up their accounting procedures, experts say one of the structural problems within the building industry is the pressure on subcontractors to help bankroll the operators they are working for.
Henry Kazar, of Kazar Slaven, one of Canberra’s best-known insolvency practitioners, said he knew of one case where a bricklayer was on a “dripfeed” for a $61,000 debt.
“I asked him ‘why don’t you take a tougher line?’. He said that if he did they [the builders] would close ranks and he would find it hard to get work. There is a fear of adverse consequences.”
Fairfax Media has sought comment from Mr Phan and Mr Sisomphou .
