first_img0Shares0000FIFA is studying whether to increase the number of teams participating in the World Cup tournament by 16 in 2022, and will announce a final decision in March 2019LONDON, United Kingdom, May 8 – The ban on Chelsea signing players over the next two transfer windows remained largely in place after FIFA issued their ruling on the London club’s appeal on Wednesday.In February, the Blues were banned from signing players for their men’s teams for the next two transfer windows after being found guilty by FIFA’s disciplinary committee of breaching regulations relating to the recruitment of minors. Chelsea denied any wrongdoing and appealed.On Wednesday, the governing body of world soccer announced that its appeal committee had “decided to partially uphold the appeal”.The committee lifted part of the ban, but only for players under 16 who are not “international transfers and first registrations of foreign minor players”.That means Chelsea will still not be able to sign male players over the age of 16 when the summer transfer window opens.Chelsea had been eager to have the ban lifted, or suspended pending the appeal, so they could be in a position to sign a replacement for Belgium Eden Hazard, who is being touted as a possible £100 million (116 million euros, $131 million) transfer target for Real Madrid.The appeal committee also confirmed the fine of 600,000 Swiss francs (526,000 euros, $590.000).0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img Sam Clucas 1 Goals from Abel Hernandez and Sam Clucas propelled Hull back into second in the Sky Bet Championship and ratcheted up the pressure on Cardiff manager Russell Slade.Saturday’s embarrassing FA Cup exit to League One strugglers Shrewsbury had reportedly left the Bluebirds boss on the brink, with online polls showing many fans want a new manager to be installed.The pressure on Slade will only increase after an uninspiring display at promotion-chasing Hull, who usurped Derby with a win more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline suggests.It was a 10th home win of the season for Steve Bruce’s men and a result that always looked likely after Anthony Pilkington clipped over Cardiff’s best chance midway through the first half.Hernandez’s penalty five minutes before the break give Hull an advantage they would not relinquish, with Clucas volleying home the hosts’ second shortly after the restart to wrap up victory.It was meek response to the 1-0 home loss to Shrewsbury and a result that looked likely once Hull found their feet, with Bruno Ecuele Manga denying the dilly-dallying Hernandez an early opener.David Marshall should have been tested at the very least and the same went for Mo Diame shortly afterwards, with his curling effort flying well over the Cardiff goal.Only a timely Matthew Connolly block prevented Hernandez directing home an exceptional Clucas cross as City continued to control proceedings, with Cardiff finally mustering their first attempt after 27 minutes.A wonderfully-weighted ball from Craig Noone put Pilkington through on goal and the winger’s clipped effort rippled the net, only for it to quickly dawn on the travelling support it had landed on top of the goal.It was a great chance that Slade’s men were made to rue five minutes before half-time, when Lee Peltier wrestled Harry Maguire to the ground from a corner.Referee Scott Duncan pointed the spot and Hernandez converted, hitting a powerful effort out of Marshall’s reach.Hull’s lead never looked in danger from that point onwards and Marshall did well to prevent man-of-the-match Maguire scoring an unlikely effort at the far post shortly after half-time.Clucas’ free-kick created that danger and the winger himself soon added Hull’s second, keeping composed after his initial effort ballooned off a defender to volley home low past Marshall.Pilkington and Joe Ralls had efforts on rare voyages forward as Cardiff attempted to peg back Bruce’s men, but nearly went further behind when Diame and Hernandez linked up.Marshall did well to deny Clucas when Hull next attacked and substitute Tom Huddlestone twice tried his luck from distance.Marshall again denied Clucas in stoppage time and, much to the relief of the 162 visiting fans, prevented David Meyler making it three with the last effort of the evening.last_img read more

first_imgBrady Opticians, Donegal Town are renowned for being the leader in safeguarding your eye health over the years, and their revolutionary new 3D OCT scans are a prime example of their innovation.U2 frontman Bono recently revealed that he has had the eye condition glaucoma for the past twenty years.He is not alone, as it affects approximately two in every 100 people over the age of 40. The danger with chronic glaucoma is that it’s a painless condition and people do not realise they have it.Glaucoma damages the optic nerve at the back of the eye resulting in a restricted ‘field of vision’.This impairs the persons’ ability to drive and navigate stairs for example.Unfortunately, the damage caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed, so it is important to have regular, thorough eye examinations. This is particularly relevant for those who are at risk of developing the disease, especially those who have a family member with the condition.Without treatment, glaucoma may eventually lead to blindness.Fortunately, there have been major advancements in the technology used to aid the early detection of glaucoma such as Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT).Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to provide a 3D view of all the major structures in the eye enabling many eye abnormalities such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, and glaucoma to be detected at a very early stage.The scan is non-invasive, painless, and takes only a few minutes to complete. Brady Opticians are the first practice in Donegal Town to offer their patients this pioneering, cutting-edge technology which is usually only found in eye hospitals.Brady Opticians highly recommend that their patients consider utilising this advanced technology to safeguard their eye health.The charge for this service is €35 and is not covered by the medical card scheme, but the health benefits are obvious.Please contact Brady Opticians today on 074 9721727 or go online at http://www.bradyopticians.com/services_item/opticalcoherencetomographys_scans_oct/ to book your OCT scan appointment.
