Falcao’s Man United future: ‘Sadly he might not even want to stay’

first_img Radamel Falcao Man United striker Radamel Falcao watched from the stands as his team-mates were beaten 1-0 by Southampton at Old Trafford.Manager Louis van Gaal claimed the decision was tactical, pointing out Falcao had played the previous five games.“As a coach, you have to take decisions and you have to look at the composition of your team and your selection and you have to look at your game plan,” he said.The Colombia international joined from Monaco on loan in the summer, with United paying £6m for his services and have the option to buy him for £43m at the end of the season.Here, supporters have their say on whether they want Falcao to become a permanent member of the side… 1last_img read more

Shy ghosts `hide’ from hunters

first_imgPASADENA – As the night crept toward the Witching Hour, a shadowy figure stole across the proscenium of the stage at the Pasadena Playhouse. Maybe it was a trick of the light or too much caffeine. Whatever it was caught the attention of members of the Pasadena Paranormal Research Society when their digital equipment suddenly shut down at the same moment. “We were doing an EVP \ session and I saw it out of the corner of my eye,” said the Society’s resident gearhead, Dennis Liang. “I’m a skeptic. I told them from the start I want to know the truth,” she said. Wielding fistfuls of cool gadgets and colorfully lit sensors, the team’s tech, Liang, is part skeptic and part believer. Hunched over a console, he monitors data as it’s collected from a variety of sensors, including an LCD display streaming video from four digital records mounted in the green room, on stage and in an electrical utility area. They collect data on temperatures, electrical fields, barometric pressure, audio levels, infrared emissions and more. Assistant Director Gil Saldana explained there are two types of entities – “intelligent,” sentient spirits loitering in the afterlife, and residual energy left behind during times of strong emotion. That residual marker could be from nervous actors waiting in the green room or a performer absorbing the rapturous applause of the audience. But their ultimate quarry – the spirit of Brown – failed to heed their pleas to manifest. “Gilmor Brown, send us some kind of sign,” Schultz said from a third floor office where theater staff attribute unexplained phenomena to Brown’s ghost. “We hear you’re quite a prankster.” Not ready to entirely give up the ghost, Saldana offered a theory on why Brown didn’t appear. Just like they can drain power from cameras, he said, some spirits require energy to manifest. “I’m of the opinion any activity here is going to be much higher when there is a show going on and an audience to create energy,” he said. todd.ruiz@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444 www.insidesocal.com/pasadenapolitics 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Investigating the Playhouse was an opportunity Society Director Syd Schultz said his team couldn’t pass up. “Most often we do private investigations of peoples’ homes. It’s not every day you can delve into a site so rich in history,” Schultz said. With the theater’s blessing, the team’s work was captured by a local filmmaker who is making a documentary about the history of the theater.

A Diseased Mindset

first_imgValue Creators have a code. They have a certain mindset. It looks different to people who haven’t yet come to understand what the Value Creator knows. A lot of people have a mindset that is still diseased, poisoned by unhealthy beliefs and bad ideas.I Need a Motivator“My sales manager doesn’t motivate me.”Do you really need someone to motivate you? Okay, try this: If you don’t do the work I will fire you. Are you motivated yet? This is what motivation is, an external stimulus, a threat.Maybe what you really meant was that you wanted inspiration? So you need someone to convince you that your work is meaningful, that it is worth doing well, that it is worth giving yourself over to?If you ever want to do meaningful work, you are going to have to provide that meaning yourself. The only inspiration that lasts is the kind that comes from inside of you. Someone may come along on light the match that you are already holding, but you have to catch yourself on fire.I Need an IncentiveIncentives are bribes, aren’t they? If you do this, I’ll give you that. This is motivation, too. But instead of a threat it’s a reward.What it often says is that you are unwilling to do what is necessary unless someone is willing to bribe you to do it. Value Creators live by a different code. They are proactive. No one has to incentivize them to do what’s right. They have a greater internal incentives.I’ll Withhold Value“If they aren’t going to pay me what I am worth, I am not going to do the work.”That’ll teach them, won’t it, Sparky? It never pays to get value creation in the wrong order. If you want to capture value, you must first create value.Old Zig Ziglar said that you can have anything you want in this world if you help enough other people get what they want. He didn’t say withhold the value you can create for others until they give you what you want. Why not? because it doesn’t work that way. It never has.Never withhold. Do the work. The rewards will most surely follow.It’s Someone Else“My school system didn’t prepare me.”“My government should help me.”“This is all someone else’s fault.”Your school system didn’t prepare you. Your parents didn’t prepare you. Your first sales manager didn’t love you enough.You’ll never find the answers you are looking for by looking outside of yourself. You’ll never find what needs to change by looking to someone or something external. You will never find anyone more responsible for you than you. You are all you’ve got, make of it what you will.Believing or behaving differently is a diseased mindset.QuestionsWho is responsible for motivating or inspiring you?Why do you need incentives? What’s your real incentive for creating value?What do you gain by withholding the value you might create?Who is ultimately responsible for your results? Get the Free eBook!

Punjab withdraws dress code for teachers

first_imgFacing flak for its order directing women teachers not to wear ‘jeans, tops and bright suits’, the Punjab government on Tuesday withdrew the directive while suspending two employees of the Education Department in this regard.The State Education Department had yesterday imposed the dress code on government school teachers, especially women, asking them not to wear jeans, tops and bright suits as the outfits have a “bad” effect on students.The circular, which was issued to all circle education officers and district education officers, cited complaints received by the department regarding the “bright outfits” worn by women teachers.‘Effect on students’“In government schools, teachers, especially lady teachers, are wearing bright dresses while being on duty. Some teachers wear jeans, tops and several types of ‘provocative’ fashionable dresses when they are on duty. It has an effect on students,” said the order.“Therefore, the dress code should be implemented in government schools and regular checking should be done to ensure implementation of the order,” it said.‘Intolerable language’Condemning the Congress-led State government for issuing such a diktat, Democratic Teachers’ Front general secretary Davinder Punia said, “The language used in the order is intolerable for teachers. This is not the way such directives should be passed on to the teachers. We strongly condemn this order.”Meanwhile, Education Minister Aruna Chaudhary suspended Deputy Director Amrish Shukla and Assistant Director Amarbir Singh of the department.The Minister said the ‘controversial’ order containing “denigrating” language about women teachers was issued without proper authorisation. She said the two officials issued the order without taking the higher authorities into confidence.She made it clear that any affront to the dignity of the ‘nation builder’ teaching community would not be tolerated, adding that such a mindset needed to be condemned in this age of women empowerment. The Minister added that the order has been withdrawn.last_img read more
