Greffe simultanée de 5 organes une prouesse médicale mais pas si inédite

By on September 20, 2019

first_imgGreffe simultanée de 5 organes : une prouesse médicale mais pas si inéditeL’Académie de chirurgie est revenue sur la transplantation simultanée de cinq organes digestifs chez un adulte, réalisée le 17 décembre à l’hôpital Beaujon à Clichy et annoncée la semaine dernière. Selon elle, cette intervention n’est pas inédite.La semaine dernière, un patient a été opéré à l’hôpital Beaujon de Clichy, dans les Hauts-de-Seine. Cet homme âgé de 26 ans, qui souffrait d’une myopathie congénitale du tube digestif a bénéficié de la greffe simultanée de cinq organes digestifs : le foie, le pancréas, l’estomac, le duodénum et l’intestin grêle. Menée par les professeurs Jacques Belghiti et Yves Panis, l’opération a duré a total pas moins de 12 heures et nécessité 4 chirurgiens et 4 anesthésistes.  Selon les médecins, tout semble s’être bien déroulé mais il faudra encore attendre un peu avant de savoir si le patient opéré supportera cette transplantation sur le long terme. Toutefois, malgré son caractère impressionnant, cette opération n’est pas totalement inédite. C’est ce qu’a expliqué dimanche l’Académie de chirurgie après que l’annonce de l’intervention a été reprise par de nombreux médias. “Il y a déjà eu des transplantations multiviscérales en France, notamment chez l’enfant, comprenant parfois plus de 5 organes”, a indiqué le professeur Jacques Baulieux, président de l’Académie. Celui-ci regrette ainsi que l’équipe chirurgicale de Beaujon se soit adressée d’abord aux médias au lieu de se tourner vers “les instances scientifiques qui ont la possibilité d’une diffusion rapide des progrès et avancées chirurgicales, après vérification”. Selon le Pr Baulieux, “une transplantation multiviscérale septuple [comprenant l’estomac, le foie, le duodénum et le pancréas, la rate, l’intestin grêle et le colon droit] a été réalisée il y a cinq ans chez une patiente alors âgée de 40 ans dans le service de chirurgie générale, digestive et transplantation à l’hôpital de la Croix-Rousse”, à Lyon, dont il était alors chef de service. Une procédure pour lister les faits scientifiques nouveaux À lire aussiUne militaire blessée dans un accident se voit greffer une oreille cultivée… dans son brasAujourd’hui, “la malade va bien. Elle est autonome et s’alimente normalement”, a assuré le Pr Baulieux. Il n’y a eu aucune annonce réalisée dans la presse pour cette intervention ni même aucune publication dans une revue médicale alors qu’il s’agissait là “probablement de la plus longue survie observée chez un adulte en France”.Le Pr Baulieux a souligné que l’Académie s’était maintenant dotée d’une procédure spécialement dédiée aux faits scientifiques nouveaux. Elle permet de présenter “une communication rapportant une innovation chirurgicale nécessitant une décision rapide de diffusion” lors de sa séance hebdomadaire et d’y convier la presse. “Si elle avait été respectée, elle aurait évité quelques erreurs et excès récents”, a souligné l’Académie dans un communiqué.Le 25 décembre 2012 à 10:34 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Notre civilisation estelle vouée à disparaitre dans quelques décennies

By on

first_imgNotre civilisation est-elle vouée à disparaitre dans quelques décennies ?Une nouvelle étude menée en partenariat avec le Centre de vols spatiaux Goddard de la NASA prévoit la fin de notre civilisation industrielle d’ici quelques décennies. A cause d’une mauvaise gestion des ressources et de trop grandes disparités économiques notre civilisation industrielle occidentale est vouée à l’effondrement. La fin de notre ère civilisationnelle, telle que nous la connaissons, devrait advenir au cours des prochaines décennies. C’est du moins ce qu’affirme une nouvelle étude réalisée par des scientifiques en partenariat avec le Centre de vols spatiaux Goddard de la NASA.Pour en arriver à de telles conclusions, les chercheurs se sont basés sur un modèle mathématique appelé “HANDY”, pour Human and And Natural DYnamical. Celui-ci a été mis au point à partir d’un croisement de données récupérées auprès de documents historiques relatant le fonctionnement des grandes civilisations, comme celle des Mayas ou encore l’empire romain. L’outil répertorie un certain nombre de facteurs qui en ont provoqué l’anéantissement à savoir : la population, le climat, l’eau, l’agriculture, et l’énergie.Des phénomènes sociaux clés Les résultats de ce modèle, publiés récemment dans l’Elsevier Journal Ecological Economics et relayés par le Guardian, mettent en évidence les mécanismes sous-jacents à la chute d’une civilisation. “Ces facteurs peuvent conduire à l’effondrement lorsqu’ils convergent pour générer deux fonctions sociales cruciales” explique le Guardian. En d’autres termes, ce sont l’exploitation à outrance des ressources et l’organisation des sociétés selon des stratifications économiques riches et pauvres qui conduit les civilisations à leur perte. Un modèle qui se répèterait inlassablement depuis 5000 ans. Ces phénomènes sociaux “ont toujours joué un rôle central dans le processus d’effondrement. Du moins au cours des cinq mille dernières années”, indique l’étude.Deux scénarios possibles Concrètement, en ce qui concerne la fin de notre civilisation, l’étude révèle deux scénarios possibles. Dans un premier cas, les plus riches pourraient avoir tellement accaparé les ressources que les populations plus pauvres, constituées principalement de travailleurs, seraient anéanties par la famine. Cette strate ne pouvant plus assurer les fonctions nécessaires au maintien des sociétés, elle entrainerait dans sa chute le système tout entier. Dans un deuxième cas, la surconsommation des ressources entrainerait le déclin des populations, toutes catégories confondues. Les populations pauvres seraient les premières à décliner avant d’être suivies de près par les populations riches. Et contrairement à ce que certains estiment, les nouvelles technologies ne seraient pas en mesure d’empêcher cette chute, au contraire. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”Le changement technologique peut augmenter l’efficacité de l’utilisation des ressources, mais cela tend aussi à augmenter à la fois la consommation des ressources et l’échelle d’exploitation de ces ressources”, or, “l’augmentation de la consommation compense souvent l’augmentation de l’efficacité de l’utilisation des ressources”, affirment les chercheurs dans leur étude.  Rééquilibrer le partage des ressources

Pour éviter un point de non-retour, les scientifiques préconisent un rééquilibre du partage des ressources et un enrayement de la surconsommation. “Les deux solutions-clés sont de réduire les inégalités économiques afin d’assurer une distribution plus juste des ressources, et de réduire considérablement la consommation de ressources en s’appuyant sur des ressources renouvelables moins intensives et sur une croissance moindre de la population”.Le 20 mars 2014 à 18:56 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Harrison Ford Must Die

By on

first_imgStay on target Dear Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars, Let Directors DirectMy Complicated Relationship with Gender and Star Wars Since 1983, celebrated actor Harrison Ford has been begging for death… in Star Wars. After Han Solo was frozen at the end of The Empire Strike Back, Ford famously tried to convince George Lucas to kill the character off before the final film in the trilogy. But the gambit failed, and Ford had to waste his time playing a still-alive Solo throughout Return of the Jedi’s entire run-time.However, in 2015 J.J. Abrams gave Ford the one gift Lucas never good, a sweet death. To complete his role as the Obi-Wan of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Solo died at the hands of a fallen student of the Force he once loved. Fans may have cried over this tragic death of a beloved character, but Ford must’ve been thrilled. He was dead, finally! All he had to do was risk dying in real-life after the Millennium Falcon door crushed his leg on set.Why stop at Star Wars? In-between (allegedly) smoking enormous amounts of pot, Harrison Ford is still appearing in a lot of movies. Some of those movies are sequels to older movies he’s starred in, and that means they’re movies he can be killed off in. We can’t let an opportunity to kill Harrison Ford (in a movie) pass us by. Let’s make him the Sean Bean of dying in sequels. Here are just a few suggestions for any filmmakers reading.Blade Runner 2049We just got our first look at the upcoming sequel to the cyberpunk classic Blade Runner. Ryan Gosling plays a new Blade Runner tasked with locating Harrison Ford’s character, Rick “May or May Not be a Robot” Deckard. With a young new star already lined up, killing off Ford here would be a totally justifiable move. Hopefully, he spouts a bunch of nonsense right before he dies like Roy Batty.Indiana Jones 5First off, the world doesn’t need a second unnecessary adventure of old Indiana Jones. Even with Disney in control, it’s time to let this franchise go already. However, the one thing this upcoming fifth entry could do to justify itself is, you guessed it, kill Harrison Ford. Indy already gets into life-threatening danger on a daily basis. Just follow that to a logical conclusion. It’s either that or endure another decade of elderly whipping and snake fear.Even More American GraffitiAmerican Graffiti is the classic film that first connected Harrison Ford and George Lucas. Its nostalgic vision of 1960s California car culture not only spawned a sequel but was also a huge inspiration for the creation of Happy Days. The ending of the original revealed the future of some major characters, including those who died in Vietnam, but the fate Harrison Ford’s Bob Falfa was left ambiguous after he survives the race-ending wreck. That means there are plenty of ways to kill him in a sequel.The Fugitive 2In this big-screen reboot of the classic TV series, Harrison Ford starred as a man who goes on the run after being framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Unfortunately, in the real world, people get punished for crimes they didn’t commit all the time. They get unjustly sent to jail or even put to death. Killing Harrison Ford in a new Fugitive could actually be a great way to teach audiences about the serious problem that is the colossal failure of the criminal justice system.Air Force One TwoBetween Olympus Has Fallen, Designated Survivor, and White House Down, people do sure love to watch the federal government collapse. What a wonderful escapist fantasy. So the time is now to bring Harrison Ford back as President James Marshall… and then kill him to raise the stakes. Make Harrison Ford Dead Again!Regarding Henry 2Regarding Henry is an uplifting story about a driven lawyer who loses his memory after a being shot and rebuilds himself into a better person. It would be such a shame to make a sequel killing off a character who has already suffered so much. But Harrison Ford is in it, and J.J. Abrams wrote it, so there’s really no other option.The Young Han Solo AdventuresHarrison Ford isn’t starring in this prequel adventure starring his famous space rogue. This time newcomer Alden Ehrenreich is doing the Kessel Run or whatever. Still, just because Harrison Ford isn’t the focus doesn’t mean he can’t die. At the very least, the film should include Solo’s death in The Force Awakens, just to remind us how this all ends.last_img read more

Will Robots Take Your Job Calculate the Risk Online

By on

first_img On the surface, rapidly advancing artificial intelligence seems cool. But bubbling underneath is a frightening future, in which grinning robots hand out pink slips to human workers.Just how likely are you to lose your job to an automated machine? Ask Web-based tool “Will Robots Take My Job?“—at your own peril.Developed by Mubashar Iqbal and designed by Dimitar Raykov, the site is based on a 2013 report examining how susceptible 702 occupations are to computerization.“According to our estimates, about 47 percent of total US employment is at risk,” researchers said four years ago.Be afraid. Be very afraid.Especially if you work as a telemarketer, tailor, mathematical technician, watch repairer, tax preparer, library technician, or data entry keyer—all of which are basically doomed come cyborg judgment day. We’ve covered all the places robots are likely to steal jobs in the future. Nearly a quarter of jobs analyzed in 2013 were at a 90 percent or higher probability of automation, according to Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne of the University of Oxford. One can only assume those numbers are higher now.Thinking about a change of career? This might be the right time to hang up the whistle (umpires, referees, other sports officials – 98 percent), put away the emery boards (manicurists/pedicurists – 95 percent), and return the uniform (waiters – 94 percent) in favor of something more secure.Like working as a reporter. My profession, though not the most lucrative, runs only an 11 percent risk of a robot takeover. Dancers, air traffic controllers, and cosmetologists boast the same results. But drivers might need to start mulling over their futures. “Our model predicts that most workers in transportation and logistics occupations, together with the bulk of office and administrative support workers, and labor in production occupations, are at risk,” Frey and Osborne wrote in their paper.“More surprisingly, we find that a substantial share of employment in service occupations, where most US job growth has occurred over the past decades, are highly susceptible to computerization,” they continued.There is, of course, no guarantee: Four-year-old statistics can only forecast so much. And if someone builds a working android podiatrist tomorrow, the 23rd safest occupation will suddenly be threatened.“Our findings … imply that as technology races ahead, low-skill workers will reallocate to tasks that are non-susceptible to computerization—i.e. tasks requiring creative and social intelligence,” the researchers said, adding that “for workers to win the race,” they must acquire those skills.

Got 15 Seconds and a Microwave Asics Can Customize Your Kicks

By on

first_img Move over, Adidas and Nike: Asics is joining the bespoke shoe revolution.The Japanese footwear maker recently introduced a new technique for creating colorful, custom midsoles.In partnership with Tayin Research & Development Co., Ltd., Asics uses microwave technology—”both speedy and sustainable,” according to the company—to produce instant soles.The in-factory process takes as few as 15 seconds, and boasts “huge potential to pave the way for decreasing environmental impact,” Asics’ blog announcement said.Choose from a “spectrum of colors” (via Asics)Currently in testing, the microwave technology could reduce energy consumption by some 90 percent, compared to the firm’s current techniques.It also has “huge potential to revolutionize” the in-store experience—i.e. You may one day be able to walk into a local sneaker store, and walk out a few minutes later with a personalized pair of kicks.Customers simply pick from a “spectrum of colors” to create their ideal palette, which gets microwaved to fuse the shades together. Then, select an upper (the entire part of the shoe that covers the foot) and watch as the two are fused together.From blue and speckled green to pink and orange to maroon and navy, the choice is yours. Watch the teaser video above for style inspiration.“The evolution of this technology could eventually give trainer enthusiasts and fashion-forward shoppers the option to customize the color of the midsole and upper on the spot,” the blog said.Asics plans to introduce the newfangled system via a handful of its footwear ranges in the future.Microwave on high for 15 seconds (via Asics)Rivals Nike and Adidas, meanwhile, have been on the cutting-edge of shoe technology for years: In 2016, they introduced actual self-lacing high-tops and biodegradable sneakers, respectively.And, this fall, Adidas is expected to launch its first mass-produced 3D-printed shoe, the premium Futurecraft 4D, which uses a digital light projection technique to shape the sole.It can’t be completed in 15 seconds, but the method promises results just as good as those made in an injection mold, with similar costs and production times.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

first_img 11 Best Monsters Made From Dead People PartsOriginal ‘Stranger Things’ Plan May Confirm Will Byers’ Sexuality Stay on target I hope you’ve stocked up on Eggo waffles, french fries, and chocolate pudding: Stranger Things season two hits Netflix on Friday.To celebrate the best binge-watch of the season, Sony Pictures and Reebok teamed up for a limited-edition run of the Ex-O-Fit Hi sneaker, featuring Ghostbusters designs seen in the streaming show.The new series opens on Halloween 1984, with the boys—Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), and Will (Noah Schnapp)—dressed as those eccentric parapsychologists known as the Ghostbusters.“It makes total sense that in the fall of 1984 [four months after the film’s release], Dustin and his friends would be nuts for Ghostbusters,” Ivan Reitman, director and producer of the original movie, said in a statement.As part of his costume (or just for funsies), superfan Dustin modifies his Ex-O-Fit Hi by drawing Ghostbusters designs (like “No ghosts” and “Ooooo”) onto the shoes.Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) suited up with his “Ghostbusters” gear and custom sneakers (via Sony Pictures Entertainment)And—because who doesn’t want to dress like a pre-teen boy from the 1980s—Reebok is now launching a line of old-school sneakers, customized with Dustin’s doodles.The footgear is being released first at worldwide BAIT retailers, followed by availability via Reebok and a number of “premium” shops around Asia and Europe. Or, you can just buy a new pair of Ex-O-Fit Hi for $75 and decorate them yourself.“’80s nostalgia is running at a fever pitch,” Reitman said, “and excitement and fondness for the classic Ghostbusters seems to grow every year.”With that in mind, Stranger Things partnered with the Ghost Corps production company (headed by Reitman and Dan Aykroyd) on the show’s themed storyline.Netflix has remained mum about the second season of its hit show. But some pieces of the spooky puzzle have been revealed, including a new (archetypal ’80s) hairdo for Eleven, the casting of a grown-up Goonie, a Canadian tuxedo-wearing bad boy teen with a car, and a Lovecraftian monster.Watch the trailer above for more clues.

Trumps Space Force to Fight Cosmic Enemies

By on

first_img President Donald Trump on Monday signed a directive to establish a new branch of the U.S. military.The so-called “space force,” which must be OKed by Congress, will ensure America’s sovereignty among the stars.“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space,” Trump said during a National Space Council meeting at the White House. “We must have American dominance in space. So important.”The country already boasts an Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Air Force. There’s plenty of room and funding for another division, right?Trump in March floated the idea of launching a space force to fight cosmic enemies.“We’re doing a tremendous amount of work in space,” he said at the time. “I said, ‘Maybe we need a new force. We’ll build a space force.’ And I was not really serious. And then I said, ‘What a great idea. Maybe we’ll have to do that. That could happen. That could be the big breaking story.”Except, it’s not exactly a novel idea: The House Armed Services Committee last year voted to create a U.S. Space Corps, which would absorb the Air Force’s current celestial missions.”Trump, however, will undoubtedly call it his own, adding the space force to the list of “achievements” engraved on his headstone.“This time, we will do more than plant our flag and leave our footprints,” he told the crowd on Monday. “We will establish a long-term presence, expand our economy, and build the foundation for the eventual mission to Mars—which is actually going to happen very quickly.”Babbling on about “rich guys” who like rockets (i.e. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos), Trump suggested that if they “beat us to Mars, we’ll be very happy and you’ll be even more famous.”“But you know what? If—as long as he’s—as long as it’s an American rich person, that’s good,” he continued. “They can beat us. We’ll save a little money, and they can beat us and we’re taking full credit for it.”Like I said…The White House provided no further details or timetable for the establishment of Trump’s infinity fleet, which will, much to the President’s chagrin, become a long, drawn-out process.“We understand the President’s guidance,” the Pentagon said in a statement to CBS News. “[We] will begin working on this issue, which has implications for intelligence operations for [other military branches]. Working with Congress, this will be a deliberate process with a great deal of input from multiple stakeholders.”If approved, the space force would become the nation’s first new military service since 1947.Trump also signed his third Space Policy Directive, calling for a new approach to space traffic management (STM).More than 1,500 active satellites are in orbit today, floating around with tens of thousands of non-functioning spacecraft fragments; there are an estimated 750,000-plus objects larger than 1 cm in Earth orbit, many of which can damage operational satellites.“Two previous administrations tried and failed to develop a system to deal with congested conditions in orbit. We are finally going to get it done,” Trump boasted. “It’s going to happen fast.”Just how fast remains a mystery. Meanwhile, the European Union-funded RemoveDebris project reached the International Space Station in April, with the intention of, well, removing space debris.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Give More 24! exceeds fundraising goal

first_imgGive More 24! raised a record $1.35 million Thursday for Southwest Washington nonprofits.The 24-hour giving spree broke its goal of $1.2 million at 9:41 p.m., said Maury Harris of the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington, the event’s host.“I think the really big thing that stood out for us as the organizers was the momentum of the day,” he said. “I think also there was just a lot more excitement and energy with our nonprofits. They did a good job getting our community excited.”Peer-to-peer fundraisers, a new feature for the event, were successful. One person’s fundraiser attracted 27 new donors to the Lower Columbia School Gardens in Longview, Harris said. Another peer-to-peer fundraiser raised $9,150 for Family Promise of Clark County, an ecumenical nonprofit supporting homeless families that looks to open its doors this winter.Although Give More 24! surpassed its financial goal, it fell short of getting 4,000 donors. In total, 3,692 individuals donated money to regional charities.Harris said the Community Foundation reached out to a large list of potential donors.“We see some people who donate every year to the event and some people who donate one year and don’t come back,” he said.Donors raised nearly $326,000 more than last year’s effort.

Downtown Vancouver’s Block 10: The Grocery Gap

By on

first_imgSay you live in downtown Vancouver, without a car. Say you’re hungry.If you need to get to a grocery store — from Esther Short Park, for example — you have a few options. You could walk the 1.8 miles north to Safeway, or the 2.2 miles east to Fred Meyer, or the 1.8 miles south to Target. You could visit a nearby convenience store for a snack, although they won’t have many staples.You could check the C-Tran schedule, and hop on the next bus that will take you where you need to go. Or, if you can afford it, you could avoid the whole thing altogether and pay for a delivery service to shop the groceries for you and drop them off at your door.You do have options. But the one thing you can’t do is visit a grocery store in downtown Vancouver, because it doesn’t exist. City leaders have been working to change that for more than a decade.“We have that food desert right now,” said Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle.Currently, the development site on Block 10 is the city’s best bet. Bordered by Eighth, Ninth, Columbia and Washington streets, the lot is about as centrally located as you can get. In negotiations with the potential developer, Gramor Development — the same company spearheading The Waterfront Vancouver — city councilors have stipulated that a grocery store is a necessity. Gramor CEO Barry Cain said he’s confident he can get a grocer into the lot.“There’s enough demand for a grocery store to be downtown right now, no doubt about it,” Cain said.But he’s going to need more time than originally planned. Last year, he assured the city council he’d have a lease signed by May 2019. That’s looking unlikely, he said last week.last_img read more

We will draw first blood – McGinn

By on September 18, 2019

first_imgNiall McGinn insists Aberdeen are ready to draw first blood in Lancashire against Burnley and put pressure on them.Aberdeen winger McGinn is determined to put more pressure on Burnley when the two sides meet for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League qualifiers.The Premier League side have the edge after picking up a valuable 1-1 result away at Scotland.Conceding that goal at home means Aberdeen must score at Turf Moor to have any chance of making it into the next qualifying round.McGinn believes he saw enough of his team that could see them go over to Burnley create chances and also score against one of England’s best defence.“We know if can get the first goal at Turf Moor, it puts Burnley under pressure,” McGinn said via Evening Express.Burnley FC v Manchester City - Premier LeagueMatch Preview: Burnley vs Liverpool Boro Tanchev – August 30, 2019 Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Burnley for the Matchday 4 of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign. “We know it’ll be a tough game over there, but we’re going with confidence and believe that we can cause them some problems.”“We’ve got to be proud of our performance. It’s only still half-time in the tie and there’s a lot to play for.”“We played against experienced internationals, who play every week in the Premier League and we believe we can make it to the next round.”McGinn believes he and his team are in familiar territory when it comes to overturning the odds whilst pointing to their 3-0 victory over Rijeka and 2-1 victory over Groningen in recent seasons.A win of any sorts for Aberdeen at Turf Moor could see them move into the next round where they’ll face Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir.last_img read more

Philippe Coutinho Messi is the best ever

By on

first_imgPhilippe Coutinho has hailed Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi as the world’s greatest ever footballer after another incredible display in their 4-2 Champions League win at TottenhamThe Brazilian midfielder scored in the second minute at Wembley to hand Barcelona an early lead before Ivan Rakitic doubled their advantage.However, Spurs mounted a second-half fightback with goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela putting the scoreline back level between the sides.But Messi’s masterclass ultimately had a decisive impact by capping things off with a match-winning brace to end Barcelona’s three-game winless run.Rakitic later announced that there is no other player like Messi with the likes of former Barca star Gary Lineker hailing the Argentine forward as the best player in history, which Coutinho also agrees on.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“Messi is the best ever,” said Coutinho, according to Goal.“He always does new things on the field, I’m glad he scored two goals.“All Champions League matches are like that.

Gareth Bale is playing with fire against Real Madrid

By on

first_imgWelsh winger Gareth Bale is risking getting sanctioned by Real Madrid if he risks playing for Wales during the international break despite his injury.There have been several times in which Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale deceives his club when he goes with Wales. The player shouldn’t even have traveled to his country in the first place and all of Spain is currently worried about the injury he is carrying right now.With his latest decision to travel, Gareth Bale has left clear that he cares very little about the club that pays him and the board of directors is getting really tired of his antics.The fact that he keeps putting his country before Real Madrid might push the club to sell him during the winter, because they think that this attitude is telling them that he simply doesn’t want to be a Real Madrid player anymore.Manager Ryan Giggs had to come out and confirm that Gareth Bale is going to miss this Thursday’s friendly match against Spain, but the player has all the intention of playing the very next match against the Republic of Ireland despite the club already warned him not to do it.But the doctors from Wales seem to listen more to Gareth than they do to the club that pays his bills, they apparently have given him hopes that he can make it in time to play against the Irish when he clearly can’t.BREAKING: Gareth Bale has been ruled out of Wales vs. Spain pic.twitter.com/jYkY30C8ZR— B/R Football (@brfootball) October 10, 2018Apart from the confirmation that he won’t play against Spain 100%, Wales manager Ryan Giggs also gave some detailed information about the procedures they made on the player’s fatigues areas and came up with the following analysis.“We rescanned it and have done everything we can to get as much information. He feels good, but we have to weigh up the risk whether he can be part of the game on Tuesday,” said Giggs via Four Four Two. “There was a little bit on both scans – but there’s always something. We’re treating the symptoms, but it’s nothing to worry about. Either way, I expect him to be fit for Madrid’s next game.”“I don’t think I was ever 100 percent [fit] when playing. When you have niggling injuries, it’s maybe at the back of your mind until you’re flying again, but I’m not worried and Gareth isn’t worried.”David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“It’s something of nothing, but it’s a short turnaround and we’ll take no chances. But if he’s available, he’s available.”“The medical team are constantly in dialogue with Madrid like they are with every team. “Playing in Spain, he wants to be a part of it [the friendly], but first and foremost health comes first – we want a fit and raring-to-go Gareth Bale,” he concluded.What Florentino and the board really feelsThe main problem with Gareth Bale is not only the fact that he is clearly prone to get injured regularly, the Real Madrid board is also very concerned with him because they feel like the player never really got to adapt to the culture in Spain and it seems that he always itches to go to Wales every time he gets.There is a large portion of the press from Madrid who has had enough of Gareth Bale’s constant rejection of the club and even the language.They believe that selling the player right now is the best possible way to finish the player’s career at Real Madrid, he has already given at least two European Cups to the club and they feel like he already paid his worth at least two times over.Most of the people in Madrid think that the Welshman’s time in the club is over, they don’t think he has a hope of stepping up to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and selling him now that he is still not even 30 years old would be in the best interest of everybody.Any of the major clubs in Europe would pay a lot of cash for having Gareth Bale in their ranks, the time is now and Real Madrid can’t waste another minute.BALE v BUSQUETSRAMSEY v RAMOSAMPADU v ASENSIO🎟 https://t.co/wLFSLDHxjG#WALESP #TogetherStronger pic.twitter.com/io19Bk3wwo— FA WALES (@FAWales) October 5, 2018Which club do you think would pay the most for Gareth Bale?

Ronaldo I deserve a sixth Ballon dOr

By on

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has his eyes firmly set on a third straight Ballon d’Or award this year for a record sixth timeThe Juventus forward is one of 30 players shortlisted for this year’s award along with the likes of fellow five-time winner Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.However, unlike in previous years, neither Ronaldo or Messi are quite as heavily fancied for the Ballon d’Or as they have come accustomed to over the past decade.Instead, it’s Real Madrid and Croatia playmaker Luka Modric who is considered the favourite after winning the FIFA and UEFA Player of the Year prizes.But, on the back of scoring 44 goals in all competitions for Real last season and inspiring them to a third straight Champions League crown, Ronaldo believes he deserves the Ballon d’Or.Although the Portuguese is not desperate either given that he is already one of the greatest players in history.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“I’ve said it plenty of times, winning a sixth Ballon d’Or is not an obsession and I wouldn’t phrase the question like that,” Ronaldo told France Football.“I already know deep down that I am one of the best players in history. Of course, I want to win a sixth Ballon d’Or! It would be a lie to say otherwise.“That’s what I work for, just like I work to score goals and win matches without it being an obsession.“The Ballon d’Or, yes, I think I deserve it.”Ronaldo has also managed seven goals and four assists in 10 Serie A games for new club Juventus this season.The winner of the 2018 Ballon d’Or will be named on December 3 at an awards ceremony in Paris.last_img read more
