Eder Sarabia’s open letter from confinement

first_imgThe second coach of FC Barcelona, ​​Eder Sarabia, sent a letter, through the club’s official media, where he explains his day to day during the confinement due to the coronavirus crisis.After a few first paragraphs where he evokes what he would be doing in the Blaugrana club if this pandemic had not devastated the planet, “at eight in the morning I would have woken up to go to the Ciutat Esportiva”, adding that “surely I would have found myself in the dining room Setien with a bowl of fruit and we would have talked about Johan Cruyff, who was celebrating four years of his death ”, the assistant begins to review his daily life in the confinement. “Before eating, I start to play chess, then I learn a little Catalan in an online course that I signed up for, then I cook a delicious pasta salad and I stretch out on the sofa to take a nap,” says the technician, who ensures that this dish is one of their specialties. You also have time to “review the latest games on the computer” and even enjoy one of your favorite sports: cycling. “I spent the whole afternoon watching the legendary Vuelta del 91, when Indurain first dressed in yellow.”Like the rest of mortals, he is also hooked on the series. In his case, it is ‘You’, “a series that has me hooked and that I took advantage of to see two chapters.”At 8:00 p.m. he goes out to the balcony to applaud and thank the toilets for his work, and then puts on his sneakers, using the dining room “as a makeshift gym.” After having dinner “a French omelette and a grilled chicken breast”, the night ended “talking to my parents and my sister on the phone.”Sarabia ends his article, acknowledging that he is “privileged” and that this confinement has made him even more aware of “valuing more” everything he has.last_img read more

Tap-dancer Fayard Nicholas, 91

In the number, the brothers tap across music stands in an orchestra with the fearless exuberance of children stone-hopping across a pond. In the finale, they leap-frog seamlessly down a sweeping staircase. Fayard, born in 1914, and Harold, born in 1921, learned to dance watching vaudeville shows while their parents played in the pit orchestra. The brothers were good enough by 1928 to debut in vaudeville. In 1932 they made their film debut in the short “Pie Pie Blackbird,” and were booked at the Cotton Club, which became their base. They were allowed to mingle with the white celebrity patrons before going home to bed at 5 or 6 a.m. They would sleep until 3 p.m., when their daily tutoring began, then return to the club by chauffeur-driven limousine for the first show at midnight. Fayard was 18, Harold 11. Movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn spotted them at the club and cast them in the Eddie Cantor musical “Kid Millions” (1934). Fayard remained on good terms with his first wife, Geraldine, and by all accounts, had a long and happy marriage to his second wife, the late Barbara January. He married dancer Katherine Hopkins in 2000. Fayard Nicholas, who with his brother Harold wowed the tap dancing world with their astonishing athleticism and inspired generations of dancers, from Fred Astaire to Savion Glover, has died. He was 91. Nicholas died Tuesday at his home in Burbank from pneumonia and other complications of a stroke, his son Tony Nicholas said. “My dad put heaven on hold and now they can begin the show,” the younger Nicholas said Wednesday. The Nicholas brothers were still boys when they were featured at New York’s Cotton Club in 1932. Though young, they were billed as “The Show Stoppers!” And despite the racial hurdles facing black performers, they went on to Broadway, then Hollywood. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThe last load of rubbish collected at Loughside.The residents of the Loughside Community were out in force yesterday with a massive cleanup operation taking place in the townlands between Ramelton and Letterkenny.More than 100 residents again took to the roads and streets of the Loughside to clear the area of rubbish and litter.Loughside residents met at a number of prearranged meeting points at 10:30am and townland area coordinators managed the clean up in their respective Townland areas. We can’t skip over this load of rubbish!The residents spent two hours lifting rubbish and litter before meeting in the Silver Tassie at 1pm for a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits, kindly sponsored by the Ciaran and Rose Blaney. The collection equipment, bags, gloves, high viz vests and the collection Skip were all provided by Donegal County Council.Loughside Community PRO Tom Higgins said “This was our second year organising a clean-up day and we were delighted with the turn out. It was a very worthwhile exercise and the residents of Loughside Community should be extremely proud of themselves.“We had boys and girls, Mammies and Daddies and a few Grannies and Granddad’s all lending a helping hand. The rubbish lifted included crisp bags, bottles, fast food boxes, old traffic cones, a gas cylinder, an ironing board, a lorry tyre, a TV, an old bicycle, a car bumper and a few old political candidate posters. We filled the skip that was provided and two additional trailers. Tom Giblin kindly brought along his Shetland pony and cart to entertain the children and as it seems some of the adults too”.The Loughside Community would again like to thank Martin Roarty and the Waste Department of Donegal County Council for the support and the Silver Tassie for providing the tea coffee and biscuits. A special word of thanks must also go to Hugo Callan, Tom McMullan, Tom Giblin, Kieran Sweeney, Conor Crossan, John Murphy and Tom Higgins who all provided their cars, vans and trailers to transport the rubbish.PLENTY OF ‘HORSE SENSE’ USED TO CLEAN UP LOUGHSIDE COMMUNITY was last modified: April 28th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:clean-upletterkennyLoughside communityRameltonrubbishlast_img read more
