Altos e baixos

Não há time de futebol que, num campeonato de longa duração como a Série B nacional, mantenha invariável sua produção. É natural que, em determinado momento, haja, pelo desgaste, acentuada queda de produção. Isso ocorre a todos. Uns mais; outros, menos. Tudo depende da qualidade do elenco e do nível dos substitutos. Padecerá mais quem depender de um ou dois jogadores. No caso do Ceará, visível a dependência do grupo com relação ao ídolo Magno Alves. Quando ele joga bem e desequilibra, tudo fica facilitado. Mas, quando não está numa jornada de boa inspiração, as coisas desarrumam. Questão é saber superar essas oscilações no menor espaço de tempo possível. Quanto mais demorar, mais comprometido fica o objetivo da ascensão.

Recordando

Década de 1980. A partir da esquerda: Hélio Sururu e o goleiro Salvino. O colaborador Elcias Ferreira não me mandou detalhes sobre Hélio Sururu. Já o goleiro Salvino teve brilhantes passagens pelo Fortaleza e pelo Ceará, ganhando vários títulos estaduais. Após encerrar a carreira, Salvino passou a ser preparador de goleiros do Fortaleza, onde há se destacado. É um dos melhores preparadores de goleiro do futebol cearense.

Air China’s first Boeing 747-8 routes: Guangzhou, Frankfurt

Air China is now the proud owner of a Boeing 747-8 – the first airline in Asia to operate the passenger version of the new-generation jumbo.

CA1315 from Beijing to Guangzhou on October 11 2014 will be Air China’s first Boeing 747-8 passenger flight, giving travellers a chance to hitch a ride on the new bird before it enters international service.

That’s happening on January 2 2015 when the aircraft goes daily Air China’s CA931/932 flights from Beijing to Frankfurt.

The new Boeing 747-8 is the first of seven for the airline, which Boeing says will enable Air China to expand its international routes.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner said: “The 747-8 Intercontinental will deliver improved operating economics, efficiency and environmental performance in support of Air China’s growing long-haul fleet.”

The Boeing 747-8 will bring double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and emissions over its predecessor, the 747-400, while generating 30 percent less noise.

The airplane’s interior, inspired by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, includes a new curved, upswept architecture giving passengers a greater feeling of space and comfort, while adding more room for personal belongings.

Air China’s Beijing-Guangzhou Boeing 747-8 flights are now on sale via the Air China website:

While the site hasn’t yet been updated to reflect the aircraft swap on flights to Frankfurt, the airline Global Distribution System (GDS) now shows the Boeing 747 on CA’s Frankfurt flights:

Air China codeshare partner and Star Alliance member Lufthansa also flies between Beijing and Frankfurt using a mix of Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8 aircraft.

In addition to the Boeing 747-8, Air China also has 15 Boeing 787-9s on order, has received 20 Boeing 777-300ERs in the last three years and is one of the largest Boeing 737 operators in China.

Qantas begins Airbus A380 flights to Dallas

Qantas today begins flying its flagship Airbus A380 from Sydney to Dallas in place of the Boeing 747 that’s shuttled between the two cities since May 2011.

It’s touted as “the world’s largest passenger aircraft flying the world’s longest route” – a nod to both the size of the double-decker superjumbo and the 13,804km stretch from Sydney to Dallas/Fort Worth airport.

And it’s also a long flight if you’re counting off the clock: a potentially bum-numbing 15 hours and 35 minutes on the direct QF7 Sydney-Dallas leg. (And the return leg, which is also a direct flight, takes an extra hour again).

The best way to see those hours through will be in first class, which is one way that Qantas’ A380 trumps the Boeing 747. It has 14 first class suites which feature not only superior comfort and service compared to business class, but a ten-course degustation menu designed by Neil Perry with matching wines.

The Flying Kangaroo on the tail of this DFW-bound A380 has also been dressed for the occasion, with a Stetson hat and a ‘neckerchief’ with American-stars print, as seen on this sneaky spy shot.

From tip to tail and across all four classes – first, business class, premium economy and economy – the Airbus A380 carries some 120 extra passengers over the Boeing 747 jumbo jet.

It also packs 323,000 litres of fuel – “equivalent to eight backyard swimming pools”, Qantas says – to make each leg of the trip.

At current fuel prices that’s worth a staggering A$252,632 – yes, Qantas’ stateside ride costs over a quarter of a million dollars in gas alone!

“The Dallas/Fort Worth service offers direct access right into the heart of the US with over 50 connections to all US major cities all within four hours, including Orlando, Boston and Houston” said Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce.

“Since starting on the route in 2011 the feedback from our corporate customers, especially those in the resources, technology and agricultural sectors, tells us they like flying into the Dallas hub because it gets them closer to their final destination in the US and offers great onward connections.”

Sydney to DFW, DFW to lots more places…

DFW is the home port of Qantas’ partner American Airlines, so passengers arriving on QF7 can transfer to direct flights to over 50 destinations in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

Qantas says the most popular cities for QF7 connections are Orlando, Boston, Houston and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

The superjumbo’s additional flying range over the Boeing 747 sees the former Brisbane stopover of QF8 on the Dallas-Sydney leg axed, with the A380 flying non-stop on its return journey.

One wrinkle of the superjumbo service is that Qantas’ daily flights to Dallas are being trimmed back to six days a week, with the new schedule dropping Tuesday departures from Sydney.

However, the A380 flights will return to a daily roster over the 2014-2015 summer holiday season from December 9 2014 to January 20 2015.

Globo encomenda última pesquisa eleitoral antes do primeiro turno – Divulgação/Globo

A Globo já acertou com o Ibope a encomenda de mais uma grande pesquisa para as Eleições deste ano. Tal pedido será o último antes do primeiro turno, que será realizado neste domingo (05).

Segundo o jornalista Lauro Jardim, a emissora carioca pagou cerca de R$ 255.850 ao instituto de pesquisa para ouvir as preferências de voto de 3.010 eleitores de diversas partes do Brasil.

A pesquisa em questão começou a ser feita nesta última segunda-feira (29) e seus trabalhos se estenderão até o sábado (04), véspera da Eleição. O “Jornal Nacional” deverá ser o primeiro a divulgar os resultados.

Após a divulgação desta pesquisa, a seguinte deverá ser a de boca de urna – com divulgação apenas após as 17h de domingo. Ela consiste em uma série de entrevistas aos eleitores após o voto.

As pesquisas boca de urna têm certa relevância mas são desprezadas em poucas horas em detrimento da divulgação dos resultados oficiais. Em 2012, por exemplo, o Espírito Santo encerrou as apurações oficiais às 19h36 – menos de três horas após o fechamento das seções. Levando em conta as questões matemáticas, é possível confirmar candidatos vitoriosos com bem menos tempo.

Paul Okon names Young Socceroos squad for AFC U-19 Championship

Young Socceroos Head Coach Paul Okon today named his 23-player squad for the AFC U-19 Championship 2014 which will be held in Myanmar from 9-23 October 2014.

The bulk of Okon’s squad has been drawn from the ranks of Hyundai A-League clubs with Shayne D’Cunha from the NSW NPL competition and Cameron Burgess (Fulham FC, England), Chris Ikonomidis (SS Lazio, Italy) and Peter Skapetis (Stoke City FC, England) as the three overseas-based players.

Okon is optimistic about his team’s chances heading into the tournament.

“We have had a good preparation leading into the tournament with a number of tours and camps where we have faced quality opposition,” said Okon.

“Unfortunately we have experienced a couple of injuries to the group recently, with Ben Garruccio (ankle) and Jordan Lyden (hamstring) ruled out of selection, but this has given opportunities for other players to step-up.

“We fly out tomorrow for a pre-tournament camp in Thailand where our overseas-based players will join us. This will allow us to acclimatise to similar conditions we will face in Myanmar and put the finishing touches on our game plan.

“Our goal is to qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup and to achieve this goal we will need to string together four quality performances,” concluded Okon.

The Young Socceroos have been placed in Group B and will face the United Arab Emirates in their first match of the tournament on Friday 10 October, followed by Indonesia on Sunday 12 October and then Uzbekistan in their final group match on Tuesday 14 October.

The top two teams from Group B will then advance to the quarter-finals where they will face the top two teams from Group A (Myanmar, I.R. Iran, Thailand or Yemen) on Friday 17 September. The winner of the Quarter-Finals will not only advance to the Semi-Finals stage of the competition, but will also qualify for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup which will be held in New Zealand from 30 May – 20 June.
