Only one rider tested positive at the last molecular swab on the second day of rest of the Giro d’Italia, carried out in the hotels of Friuli. Fernando Gaviria, the South American sprinter of UAE Emirates, immediately quarantined by the team. The real news that the Colombian was, last March, the first professional cyclist in the world to be infected. The positivity was discovered in Abu Dhabi during the UAE Tour and the sprinter (slightly symptomatic at the time) was forced to a very long quarantine in an Emirati hospital.
The 492 tests carried out last Sunday showed only one other positive, a member of the Ag2R la Mondiale staff team who had already had a case last week. The percentage of positives in the Giro caravan equal to 0.6% against a national average of 9.4% on swabs carried out. The caravan continues its run towards Milan with the 16th stage Udine-San Daniele del Friuli of 229 km.
The hierarchy of the peloton that will start on Tuesday in Irun will not have much difference from the one that left Nice at the end of August in the Tour de France. The yellow color of the Jumbo-Visma will continue to command the group, especially in the mountains, with the presence of Primoz Roglic, Tom Dumoulin, Sepp Kuss, George Bennett and Robert Gesink. The Slovenian will defend the victory achieved last year and arrives at the appointment after being second in the Tour de France and winning the Liege.
He will share the lead with the Dutch Tom Dumoulin, who after his long inactivity continues to add kilometers and wants to show that he is in a position to win a great lap again, as he did in the Giro d’Italia in 2017.
The most likely rival of Jumbo-Visma will be Ineos, who under the leadership of Richard Carapaz seek, once and for all, to win a great lap, or at least aspire to it, after the disappointments of Egan Bernal in the Tour de France and the premature abandonment of Geraint Thomas in the Giro d’Italia. The Ecuadorian will be accompanied by Chris Froome.
The four-time winner of the French round and also the winner of the Giro and the Vuelta will return to participate in a three-week race after the serious fall he suffered in June 2019. It seems difficult that the Briton can return to his best level, not even get closer, but the respect he has earned during his career positions him as the great name of the Vuelta a España.
The provisional list may undergo changes, as there are riders who will be on Sunday in the Tour of Flanders, for example, and a fall can disrupt the teams’ plans. Needless to say, what can cause a positive for Covid-19 in the previous days.
The revolution that the Txuribeltz parish had been demanding in recent campaigns has finally arrived this summer. The person in charge of leading it has been Gorka Etxeberria, forming a squad that combines veteran and youth. A mix in which they trust the Stadium Gal to give their chest in such a decisive campaign.
– Thirteen registrations, almost as many drops, change of coach … Did you have more work than you expected when you arrived?
– We have done what we planned. The idea since I landed was to give the whole club model a spin from the sports field. The goal was for both the coach and the players to respond to a certain pattern.
– What deficiencies did you detect?
– The first thing was that the pieces were from different puzzles. I think there were footballers to make teams of different styles. The most important thing was to define what we want and from there we have looked for the profiles and the right technician.
– And what is that style?
– It has several characteristics. The main one I would say is tactical aggressiveness. We want a modern team that works well with the ball, but goes forward. That causes situations. Less speculative. I have the conviction that this is a style that can hook the fans much more.
– Two aspects draw attention to the incorporations: the first is that they have increased the radius of action.
– We always have to have a broad core of Gipuzkoan player. Then we have determined what we would call a second ring, which would encompass the Basque Country and its surroundings. Between the two of us, we have 82% of the workforce. That has been sought and is premeditated. When we do not find what we want in these two areas, we open ourselves to the outside.
“We want a modern team, that causes situations and does not speculate, that is capable of hooking the fans”
– The second is youth. Isn’t it a double-edged sword to sign inexperienced players?
– The templates of the previous courses were made up of youth and veterans. I think the news is that we have signed the Middle Ages. Many of the new ones are between 25 and 30 years old. It seemed essential to me to get players who are in their golden age.
– At the Stadium Gal they have even had their own burofax. Has Telis’ contract termination been the big disappointment since you arrived?
– I was very sorry. I think it is difficult, even wanting, to get worse advice. Everyone has warned him but he has insisted on keeping around him that circle that guides him worse than ever.
– What did they say at the last meeting?
– I held out my hand once more. To help him in his career, almost on a personal level, but he has wanted to keep his entourage of advisers who lead him to the precipice.
– Returning to the team. What did you think of the preseason?
– The first thing I’ve seen is that we have DNA. Even the times that it has not carbured well, it was present. I already have feedback that the coach and the pieces fit perfectly. Logically, there are times when it works better or worse, but the team is tactically aggressive, pressuring and looks for the baseline with the ball. The energy it transmits is totally different.
– The last one goes to the happy Coronavirus. He will be aware of cancellations in the Asobal League, the ACB … Will Second B hold?
– I see it as a challenge. We cross our fingers so that there is not a great stop. We all have to be ready to adapt to small contingencies that we suffer along the way and to avoid them as they arise.

(ANSA) – SAN FRANCISCO, 14 OCT – Twitter suspended several fake accounts of alleged African American supporters of Donald Trump who had managed to collect several thousand contacts in a few days. “Our teams are working around the clock to investigate this activity and will act in compliance with Twitter regulations if the rules are violated,” said a spokesperson for the San Francisco-based group. Darren Linvill, Clemson University lecturer. in social media misinformation, he posted examples of these fake Twitter accounts. “Yep, I AM BLACK AND VOTE FOR TRUMP! The gauchos won’t like it but I don’t care !!! “, he tweeted for example the profile of” Ted Katya “on September 17, with lots of emojis. This tweet has been shared more than 6,000 times and” I liked it “more than 16,000 Most of these accounts “used pictures of real Americans on their profiles. Many were followed by tens of thousands of followers, “Linvill said.
Luis Enrique cannot deny that with scorers like David Villa or Fernando Torres the Spanish team “could be better”, but the Asturian coach assures that he does not change the team he has for a star “who scores 30 goals and conditions the entire defensive aspect” . «The national team will generate scoring chances and I am delighted with the many possibilities that different players give me. I’ll take what I have before having a single figure that conditions me, “said the national coach on Friday, the previous one for Spain-Switzerland in the Nations League in Valdebebas. “If we had a player with that profile (of ‘killer’) we would enjoy it, but what we have is what we have and I am delighted,” insisted Luis Enrique.
The Spanish coach believes that “there will not be a tactic for a player, but to promote individualities from a collective vision. “Here is a collective idea and a collective goal,” proclaimed who acknowledges that two of the pearls of Spanish football, the case of Ansu Fati and Adama Traoré, “can play together as starters, because there are no incompatible players, although they can only play eleven ».
«A profile like Adama’s is not easy to find in a team, and we will try to adapt it. Adama’s case is special. He does not work weights. The genetics are there, and so is the work. He has worked his body, but not only has speed and an enviable physical structure. He is skill, power, strength, ability to hold the ball … He is very skillful and is a very sensible person, very thorough and very mature and I am very happy that he is doing very well, “said the coach in reference to the youth squad of the Barça that militates in the Wolverhampton.
Regarding Ansu Fati, who will turn 18 on October 31, Luis Enrique estimates that “the public attention he received in the first week (in the national team) could be a bit excessive, but if you score, you get a penalty and you look like a veteran, it is also normal. «Ansu is used to it and wants to continue growing as a player and as a person. There are many young players who have a natural and innate ability and our goal is that they spend many years in the national team and they just have to have the humility and tranquility to improve day by day. You have to go little by little, “he claimed.
After it was published that the Spanish Football Federation (FEF) wants Sergio Ramos to be the captain of Spain at the Tokyo Olympics next year, Luis Enrique admits that “that question is for Luis de la Fuente (sub -21) “, but clarified that his goal is for the Real Madrid defender to” contribute a lot to the European “also scheduled for 2021. The absolute coach admits that he does not have a backbone or eleven type,” because it will be based on what you see “, but he did remember that” there are players, like the captain (Ramos), who has been at a top level all his life, the same as Busi (Busquets), De Gea or whatever “.
«If Busi maintains the level of the last eleven years it will be an important pillar in the European. The problem is that retirement is closer, for all veterans. If it maintains its level it will be top as it is currently, and if it does not maintain it it is the first to last as long as its performance lasts. His performance is superior to other players, although there is no one eternal. Age counts for everyone ”, acknowledged the coach.

The match between Boston River Y National It is at 4:00 p.m., but the tricolor fans will be attentive to televisions, radios, web pages or social networks a while before, since before the start of their match at Paladino, they will know the result of Rentistas, the other team in question for the title of the Opening Tournament.
The “Red Bugs” face Defender Sporting at your Camino Mendoza complex from 1:30 p.m.
The revelation of the tournament needs to win yes or yes. In case of doing so, they will surpass the tricolor by one point, who will have the pressure to win against one of the teams that is last, such as Boston River, since yesterday it was reached by River Plate in that position, after the tie of Los darneros with Plaza Colonia 1-1.
National he is going through a good present, he looks solid and with variations in all sectors of the court. To such an extent that coach Gustavo Munúa has managed to enlarge the squad by giving him the opportunity to play several youth players who had not had minutes.
Today Nacional will have the return of Armando Mendez on the right side after not being with Liverpool and serving a suspension match, and the doubt is in the left sector of the defense, because in the absence of Agustin Oliveros (who is doomed to the National Team) Munúa must decide between placing Ayrton cougo, a natural replacement because it is its profile but it has had irregular performances, or Mathias Suarez, that after having a few days somewhat convulsed by being the roommate of Felipe Gedoz (with coronavirus) was cited again by the tricolor coach. The “Zorrito” Suárez would play with a changed leg.
Nacional will also have a forced change in the goal, because Luis Mejia He also traveled to Panama to defend his team, but Sergio Rochet provides guarantees after the good returns it has had in the arc of the dawn.
The rest of the team comes from memory, since the rear will be composed of Guzmán Corujo and Paulo Vinicius, in the double five Claudio Yacob and Gabriel Neves, as wingers Alfonso Trezza and Gonzalo Castro and Santiago Rodríguez behind the center forward and top scorer of the Apertura Tournament , Gonzalo Bergessio.
He Abraham Paladino Park It will give an extra spice to the game, because neither team is used to playing in this scenario, which is one of the smallest in Uruguayan football. Boston River He regularly plays at the Estadio Centenario, which this time was preserved for the Uruguay-Chile match tomorrow.
National will seek to be champion of Opening today with a win, and a draw or loss of Rentistas.

Nacional is up in the record
The history between Nacional and Boston River records eight games, all of them for the Uruguayan Championship. The first was on December 11, 2016 in the Gran Parque Central with a 1-0 victory with a goal by Sebastián Fernández, a victory that served to obtain the Uruguayan 2016.
In total, Nacional won four games, tied twice and Boston triumphed twice. The last match was for the Clausura, with a 2-0 tri-color victory (Carballo, Zunino).

Rentistas has two very important casualties
Without a doubt that Rentistas is the pleasant revelation of Opening Tournament. Before the start of the contest it was unthinkable that the “Red Bugs” were defining two dates from the end. But those led by Alejandro Cappuccio They made it and now they want to go for glory. For that, they do not depend on themselves, but if they win they will put a big backpack on Nacional, which at 4:00 pm visits Boston River.
The coach will have two important losses due to suspension: Renato César and Robert Ergas, who is also injured, overcoming a strain. It is also worth remembering that Cristian Olivera -the figure- is no longer there, because he was transferred to Almería.
Rentistas was concentrated last night at the Hampton by Hilton on Avenida de Las Américas. The reds come from losing to Cerro, while the violets have not lost in six games.

On September 28, 1969, a large ball of fire could be seen in Victoria, southeast Australia, which split into three fragments before disappearing. Shortly afterwards an impact was felt. It was the Murchison meteorite, from which up to 100 kilos of material were recovered. Since then, organic compounds and sugars have been found in these rocks that have reaffirmed the theory that the essential compounds for life to emerge on Earth came from space aboard meteorites. Now, a new study reveals that these rocks contain even more surprising things.
The largest fragment of the Murchison meteorite is in the Field Museum in Chicago. There, Philipp Heck’s team has analyzed a portion of this celestial body concentrating on 40 grains of silicon carbide, a material with a hardness similar to that of diamond. Each piece measures just a few microns, that is, it is about a thousand times smaller than a millimeter, but it contains information that goes back to before the Earth, the Sun and the rest of the solar system existed.
Researchers have analyzed the changes in silicon carbide produced by the impact of cosmic rays whose particles are capable of changing the atomic composition of the original material and which, due to their frequency, can be used as a clock that estimates the age of the sample. .
The results show that most of the grains analyzed are 300 million years older than the solar system, which was formed about 4.6 billion years ago, and that some of them are 1,000 million years older, the authors highlight. published today in the magazine Proceedings from the US National Academy of Sciences.
“This is the oldest material that has ever been found,” explains Heck in a press release. The expert defines the matter analyzed as “authentic stardust” and highlights that his analysis allows us to clarify how stars were formed in our galaxy, the Milky Way.
According to his team, the tiny “star fragments” analyzed come from a star that was born about 7 billion years ago during a period of intense star formation. That material was spat out by his star. It first wandered through interstellar space alone, then was buried within a body of rock, where it was preserved intact for billions of years. That rock or part of it was attracted by the Earth’s gravity force, penetrated the atmosphere and decomposed in all the fragments of the Murchison meteorite that fell on Australia in 1969. Finding these compounds is a milestone, since most of the Stellar dust that is deposited in meteorites is destroyed by the pressure. Only about 5% of known meteorites contain material of this type and their abundance does not usually exceed a few parts per million.
This material points to the origin of the solar system even before it existed. “Silicon carbide grains are among the most refractory and resistant materials that form meteorites called carbonaceous chondrites, such as Murchison’s”, explains Josep M. Trigo, meteorite expert at the Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CSIC) , in Barcelona. “The interest of this work is that the authors show that most of this type of presolar grains were formed in a type of stars known as the asymptotic branch of the giants. This reaffirms a previous study by our group that suggests that our Sun could have formed in the vicinity of stars of this type ”, he highlights.
The band decided to reunite in 2019 for a new tour, which will be based on digitized recordings of Viktor Tsoi’s voice. Concerts had to be postponed due to ban on mass events in connection with the coronavirus pandemic
The rock group “Kino” has postponed the previously planned concerts for the next year. The musicians informed the fans about this in a video message on the YouTube channel.
“Unfortunately, this fall it will not be possible to hold such big concerts as we have planned. And so we have to postpone them, ”the team said in a statement.
In the comments under the video, the musicians noted that they postponed the decision to postpone the concerts as long as they could, but now it is already clear that this fall it will not be possible to hold events for ten thousand spectators anywhere.
According to the updated schedule, the performances of the band will take place from February to June 2021 in Minsk, St. Petersburg, Kiev, Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow and Riga.
Niko Kovac has apparently been infected with the corona virus. His new club, AS Monaco, confirmed two suspected Covid 19 cases. The French “L’Equipe” reported that one of the people was the former Bayern coach.
Dhe former Bayern and Eintracht coach Niko Kovac has tested positive for Covid-19 according to information from the French sports daily “L’Equipe”. Kovac’s new club AS Monaco confirmed two suspected corona cases on Friday evening without naming them. There is nothing to worry about.
According to “L’Equipe” it is the Croatian coach and goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte. Both are symptom-free and in quarantine until further notice. They missed the test match of Kevin Volland’s new club at OGC Nice on Friday. Kovac now has to be in quarantine for 14 days and cannot train his team during that time. Last Thursday he was still in charge of team training.
