  • Reguilón interests PSG

    first_imgA few days ago, without going any further, he declared this: “I know what Monchi thinks, that he loves me very much. I also love my colleagues, the people, Seville and the city. But when the season ends, I have to return to Madrid and we’ll see what happens to everything. Until then, I only think about finishing the season well, doing my best and starting from that basis, whatever God wants. For work, desire and effort, I will leave everything. I’m not just talking about Monchi or Lopetegui anymore, it’s that the club workers have also shown me all their love from day one. My colleagues, with whom I spend the day to day, make my life easier. People greet and cheer me on the street … ‘you’re a crack!’. I have always felt a lot of affection for me in Seville “. Paris Saint-Germain is interested in Real Madrid winger Sergio Reguilón, on loan this season from Sevilla. Reguilón, 23, was completing an interesting season as a man from Nervén and in principle he had to return to the Madrid discipline at the end of this season. According to RMC, the French club has him on his agenda along with also former white Theo Hernández, who signed for Milan, and Porto’s Brazilian Alex Telles.PSG will lose Kurzawa, who is free, and is looking for new tenants for his left wing. Reguilón started the campaign in Nervión as a shot and then had a slump in his game from which he came back with good performances in the last days. He has a contract at the Santiago Bernabéu until 2023 and Sevilla also contemplated the possibility of obtaining his loan for another year, something that is not clear right now. The winger has always declared himself to be very comfortable in the capital of Andalusia.last_img read more

  • Ratings can beat U.S. networks’

    first_img Revenue from Univision’s three television networks – Univision, Galavision and Telefutura – was $368.4 million, up from $324.8 million in the same quarter in 2004. Rodriguez said the company’s TV networks drew more 18- to 34-year-old viewers last year than English-language networks nearly two out of every three nights of the year. That trend could go higher now that Univision and Telefutura’s viewership is being tracked by Nielsen’s National Television Index alongside English-language networks. “Already in the first two months of being measured in NTI, not only has Univision consistently held the number five spot among all broadcasters in the country in any language and among all audiences, but we have shown that we can beat ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX,” Rodriguez said. Revenue for Univision Radio during the quarter was $91.5 million, up 9 percent. The company’s music recording business saw sales of $44.5 million, compared with $46.9 million last year. During the quarter, Univision incurred a $6 million charge for payments to be made to Televisa, one of Univision’s biggest shareholders and a principal supplier of its television programming. The payments stem from a legal dispute. The company’s cost-reduction plan, which resulted in 270 layoffs and the elimination of 100 open jobs, should generate more than $50 million in savings this year, management said. Univision also projected first-quarter earnings between 14 cents per share and 16 cents per share. For the full year, net income was $187.2 million, or 54 cents per share, compared with $255.9 million, or 72 cents per share, in 2004. Excluding the charges, 2005 earnings were $291.2 million, or 85 cents per share. Analysts were expecting full-year earnings of 83 cents per share. Revenue in 2005 increased 9 percent, to $1.95 billion from $1.79 billion in 2004, the company said. Univision shares fell 34 cents to close Thursday at $33.50 on the New York Stock Exchange. They rose 80 cents in after-hours trading. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Spanish-language media conglomerate Univision Communications Inc. said Thursday that fourth-quarter profit declined as a result of charges from its cost-cutting plan, payments to Grupo Televisa and the decline in value of investments, primarily in Entravision Communications Corp. The broadcaster, which revealed last month that it is exploring a sale of all or parts of the company or future acquisitions, reported net income of $27.4 million, or 8 cents per share, compared with $67.2 million, or 19 cents per share, a year ago. Revenue rose 11 percent, to $513.5 million from $461.3 million in the same quarter last year, the company said. Excluding the charges, earnings rose 24 percent to $83.1 million, or 25 cents per share. On that basis, analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial expected profit of 23 cents per share.

Jerrold Perenchio, Univision’s chairman and chief executive, said in a statement. During a call with Wall Street analysts, Ray Rodriguez, Univision’s president and chief operating officer, said the company is “extremely well-positioned” for continued growth in 2006. Rodriguez also briefly addressed the company’s decision to explore a possible sale or acquisition. “Univision is currently in a uniquely strong position,” Rodriguez said. “Our performance is at record levels. Attention to Spanish-language media keeps growing, and our industry-leading assets and our connection with Hispanics simply cannot be duplicated.” He said the process was still in the “beginning stages,” adding that the company does not plan to disclose developments until a final decision has been made. last_img read more

  • NEIL LENNON: JIM CAN WORK FOR DONEGAL GAA AND CELTIC

    first_imgNEIL LENNON WELCOMES JIM MCGUINNESS TO PARKHEADNEIL Lennon has insisted Jim McGuinness can help Celtic’s players at all levels – and still manage Donegal.And the Armagh man revealed at his Friday press conference that Celtic’s majority shareholder Dermot Desmond was behind the recruitment of the Glenties man.McGuinness has taken a part-time role with Celtic, it was announced earlier today. Said Lennon: “Dermot made me aware of Jim’s position and made the introduction.“We had a long conversation about both sports and sport in general and there is stuff I can learn from him (Jim) and there is stuff he can learn from us so it is a win-win situation.“Jim has a skill set that we don’t have here, in terms of the psychological side of the game. It is a huge part of sport.“He will player profile the younger players, look at their strengths and weaknesses, study their background and their state of mind. “He will not be able to coach, he is not a qualified football coach but he does know sport and has excelled in his own sport.“So the cross to football will not be a problem.“He will predominantly work with younger players but if I feel there is a first-team player that would benefit from Jim’s skill I would have no hesitation in using him.“It will have no effect on what he is doing at Donegal.“He will probably initially come in two days per week and we will take it from there.” McGuinness said earlier: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me on an individual level and I’m very thankful to Neil Lennon for giving me this chance and bringing me into the club.“Obviously I work in amateur sport and the opportunity to work in professional sport in any capacity is a wonderful chance for me and one I’m very looking forward to. My role will be based on developing the younger players in the club, development and Academy players that are Under-20 and that level.“It’s really about trying to work on every single one of the players on an individual level, trying to develop them in several areas, something I have experienced often in the past.“You are really looking to create a finished product that is good enough to be pushing for the first team and creating a stronger squad at the club. We will hopefully look at every single player as an individual project and move them forward as best we can.” NEIL LENNON: JIM CAN WORK FOR DONEGAL GAA AND CELTIC was last modified: November 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:NEIL LENNON: JIM CAN WORK FOR DONEGAL GAA AND CELTIClast_img read more

  • More South Africans plan to vote

    first_imgThe Independent Electoral Commission says more South Africans are interested in the forthcoming local elections than was the case five years ago, and mostare satisfied with the way the IECis handling the event.(Image: IEC) MEDIA CONTACTS • Kate BapelaIEC chief communication officer+27 12 622 5579  or +27 82 600 6386 RELATED ARTICLES • SA youngsters queue for change • SA kicks off 2011 election drive • New political party as poll nears • Social media to help Nigerian poll • Women gain power, vote by voteSource: BuaNewsResults of a survey commissioned by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) have revealed that 79% of citizens intend to vote in the local elections on 18 May, while just 21% will abstain.Voting interest among South Africans was generally higher with over 90% expressing satisfaction with regards to the country’s voting process.About 500 specific areas were visited with seven households selected in each area and face to face interviews conducted in the language of the respondents. Those interviewed were aged 16 and older and ran across different race and ethnic groups.The IEC says it commissioned the research, conducted by the Human Science Research Council, to assess voter readiness ahead of the local government elections on 18 May. The research will be used in their ongoing preparations for elections and assess where they need to improve.Political disinterest and disillusionment was the primary reason given by those not intending to vote in the upcoming election. Those interviewed display some levels of mistrust for politicians and expressed disappointment at delivery levels by municipalities.Some admitted that party loyalty rather than abstention remained their key electoral response to political parties not delivering effectively on their mandate.Researchers also found that political interest increased slightly from 2004 but levels remained relatively low at 42%. About 58% of the respondents expressed awareness of local governance structures such as ward committees, with this awareness most seen among poor citizens.However, satisfaction with democracy declined slightly over the past decade and this was coupled with lower levels of trust in core political institutions. Interesting was the increase in the level of trust for the South African Broadcasting Corporation with respondents expressing confidence with the public broadcaster, religious groups and the IEC.An overwhelming number of South Africans were also satisfied with the registration process and 98% found it easy with 58% reporting to have taken 10 minutes or less to register.In terms of view on municipal performance, 45% expressed dissatisfaction with municipal services and their confidence dropped in relation to Batho Pele principles.In addition, most voters hold the IEC in high esteem for its “efficiency and professionalism”. Trust in the IEC increased by 19% between 1999 and 2010.There also seems to be fairly high awareness of the IEC (86%) but knowledge about the commission remained limited at 56% while 17% of respondents said they had no knowledge of what the body does.But lead researcher Udesh Pillay from the HSRC said very few voters, about 13%, thought irregularities had occurred during the previous local government election held in 2006, while 86% said they have never personally experienced any irregularity.Pillay said: “The general feeling was that the majority is satisfied with the way things are done and how the IEC conducts its business I ‘m sure the IEC would like to see the number increase but general is satisfactory”.He went on to attribute the decline in satisfaction with democracy with increased in unemployment, the economic situation of 2008 and anxieties sparked by the dramatic political transition leading to the 2009 general elections.(012) 622 5579 Fax: (012) 622 5429 Cell: 082 600 6386last_img read more
