O presidente do Sporting Clube de Portugal tornou público, esta sexta-feira, um texto em que mostra a sua indignação perante afirmações de Cláudio Ramos no programa “Passadeira Vermelha”, da SIC Caras. “Lamento muito que toda a SIC esteja a ser fortemente prejudicada por este comportamento infantil, mentiroso e reles de um simples comentador”, considera Bruno de Carvalho. E nem o diretor do canal, Daniel Oliveira, escapa a esta missiva.

“Eu sou o melhor jogador da História”

Flag of Portugal.svg

Após a quinta Bola de Ouro, capitão da seleção nacional autoproclama-se o melhor futebolista de sempre, em entrevista à France Football

Cristiano Ronaldo saiu de Paris no topo da lista dos prémios de melhor do mundo, após o penta na Bola de Ouro que o igualou ao rival Lionel Messi, e com uma firme convicção, confessada na tradicional entrevista à France Football, revista que organiza o prémio. “Eu sou o melhor jogador da História, nos bons e nos maus momentos”, disse.

À pergunta da revista francesa sobre se se considera o melhor futebolista de todos os tempos, o capitão da seleção portuguesa começou por responder que não vê “ninguém melhor” do que ele. E depois justificou a apreciação. “Nenhum jogador faz coisas que eu não faça, mas eu vejo coisas que outros não conseguem fazer. Não há jogador mais completo do que eu. Sou o melhor jogador da História. Nos bons e nos maus momentos.”

Aos 32 anos, Cristiano Ronaldo conquistou a quinta Bola de ouro da carreira, nove anos depois da primeira. Foi também a quarta nos últimos cinco anos, o que lhe permitiu igualar a rivalidade direta com o argentino Lionel Messi, numa luta que chegou a estar desequilibrada em 4-1 a favor do jogador do Barcelona. Ronaldo admitiu nesta entrevista à France Football que o domínio do argentino o estava a incomodar.

“É engraçado… Ganhei uma Bola de Ouro antes do Messi. Depois ele passou-me e ganhou quatro de seguida. Não escondo que me senti triste e com raiva. Ia às cerimónias e nunca ganhava. Chegou um ponto em que estava desmotivado, não queria mais ir. Estar lá só para a foto não me interessava”, confessou.

She said the school would also be delivering 200 shoe-boxes packed with goodies and gifts for children of the foundation and other K10,065 which came from ticket and label sales raised by the school.
Friends Foundation Inc founder Tessie Soi was moved by the school’s kind gesture.

Soi said: “I have cared for over 3000 friends, I have buried over 369 babies, I have assisted over 1000 babies from becoming positive.
“At present, Friends Foundation is assisting 27 babies with lactogen milk. These are babies born to positive parents. At six (years old), we take them off the breast milk so that we keep them negative up until two years when the child develops her own immune system.”

Another degree under his belt

Flag of Papua New Guinea.svg

A LECTURER at the University of Natural Resources and Environment (UNRE) has been awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Queensland in Australia.
Nason Pue, who teaches biology, was told of the good news by his supervisor through the university’s Staff Development and Training (SD&T) office.
He is described as one of the leading home-grown staff members of the university, a silent achiever and a scientist who likes to make things happen to see results.
Pue’s interest in the university began as a high school student at George Brown High School when he visited the institution on a field day.
Even when he was selected to do grade 11 and 12 in Australia, he didn’t give up on his dream. He chose to study agriculture at the then University of Vudal after year 12, even when his friends told him farming was a low-profile job.
After graduating with a Diploma in Tropical Agriculture in 1999, Pue went to Victoria University in Melbourne to study microbiology, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2003.
In 2004, Pue joined the University of Natural Resources and Environment as an assistant lecturer under a trainee cadetship initiated by the Agriculture Institution Strengthening Programme.
“Agriculture is the science of farming, so my pursuit of agriculture was a long and narrow winding road, from a Diploma in Tropical Agriculture at UNRE, to the Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia, where I received my Bachelor of Science in microbiology and biotechnology, and a Master of Biotechnology and PhD, both from the University of Queensland,” he said.
His research include studying the structure of compounds and their activity on fungi and plant enzymes and their potential as antifungal drugs or herbicides.
His research interest has expanded into mushroom, hydroponics, the use of microbes as biopesticides and controlling fungal infections in plants and animals.
Pue has also published two papers in the Journal of Medical Chemistry – which is published by the American Chemical Society – and current pharmaceutical design.
“Although qualification matters in indicating you have attained knowledge and skills, a good attitude and ability to connect with people and learn from your mentors will help develop experience over time.”

NID outrage

Flag of Papua New Guinea.svg

By LUKE KAMA

A SENIOR officer and two employees of the National Identity Office are under investigation over the illegal issuing of birth certificates outside the official national identification registry system.
The two employees, one of whom is the son of an officer at the NID Office, are already in custody at the Boroko Police Station in Port Moresby. The senior officer, believed to be behind the “syndicate” which also involves people from outside the NID office, is expected to be arrested soon.
Acting Registrar-General Michael Kumung told The National yesterday that “certain people employed in the NID Office had been using their positions and the office they were occupying to engage in corrupt dealings and steal from the people and the Government”.
He said the birth certificates were produced at the Boroko NID office but had the “entry number” for Wewak.
“We have a NID office in Wewak but it is not operational yet to process applications for birth certificates and NID cards,” he said.
“The birth certificate is printed only by our system with secured security features.
“How it ended up in the streets for some people to make business (out of it) is a serious issue.
“Those (officers) implicated will face disciplinary action.”
It is understood that the officers and outsiders involved in the activity charge fees to people who wanted the birth certificates produced outside the official ID system.
Kumung said establishing the NID project had cost the government around K231 million “in terms of rolling it out effectively and efficiently to produce birth certificates and the NID cards and issue them to our people”.
“But the problem is that some people are not safeguarding and following the system to do the job they are supposed to be doing,” he said.
“They get paid from the government and are abusing their office to engage in corrupt dealings to steal again.
“These sort of people we need to get rid of to clean, revive and strengthen our NID system.”
Kumung said the birth certificates contained all the security features and were signed and stamped by the deputy registrar-general, and ready for collections.

Police said there were in the early stages of their enquiries and no further information was available at this stage.

Dame Patsy switched on this year’s Franklin Rd lights on December 1, to a crowd of hundreds.

It’s the quarter century anniversary of the first time the popular tradition was begun by the residents of Franklin Rd.
