Gameiro: last chance to recover part of the investment

first_imgThe striker is still an appetizing player on the market. Last January he had offers from French clubs although he did not want to leave and decided to end the season at Valencia. Once this season ends, the situation will be different. If a club offers you more than a year of contract and Valencia agrees, the Frenchman could pack and leave Valencia. Otherwise, he would fulfill his contract since, at the moment, Valencia has not told him anything about a possible renewal. Because, Valencia must move tab in the next market, which, among other things, does not know when it will be, due to the change of date that the 2019-20 season will have. Valencia still must amortize next year 5.3 million of the signing of the French, so at least you must take out this amount to avoid incurring losses. In the sports field, Gameiro is amortized. It was one of the protagonists in the Copa del Rey that Valencia lifted last year and its performance, in general terms, has been good. Valencia paid Atlético 16 million euros in the summer of 2018, for the transfer of Kevin Gameiro. The French He will be 33 in just one month and ends his contract in June 2021. Because, Valencia has in the next transfer window the last chance to recover part of that investment. If it is not transferred, it will fulfill its contract and will leave free a few months later. The case is similar, in terms of contract termination and the footballer’s age, to that of Garay, who is currently seriously injured and with a contract that ends in two and a half months.last_img read more

Recess Making the Old New Again

first_imgShare196TweetShareEmail196 SharesKids Playing in Playground / Steven DepoloSeptember 13, 2016; Washington PostSaying that the public school system is “obsolete,” Bill Gates devoted billions to help bring it into the 21st century. Many others assert test-based accountability, school choice, charters, and so on are the best solutions. But each time something championed takes effect, the proponents are more often than not dismayed by the results. One tried-and-true solution appears to be as simple and inexpensive as bringing recess back to elementary school.Ninety percent of American students (some fifty million) attend public school. Federal, state, and local budgets taken together spend on public education (more than six hundred billion dollars) what we spend a year as a nation on defense. And we’re losing the battle. Some are saying that we are mistakenly imposing a free-market ethos of competition on an institution that performs much better by fostering cooperation, sharing—and play.The benefits of play for children have always been known, but testing and academic rigor somehow pushed it into afterschool hours. The American Academy of Pediatrics issued this policy statement on “The Crucial Role of Recess in School” in 2013. The U.S. used to know and practice this in the ’60s and ’70s. Finland apparently learned the importance of recess from the U.S., still practices it, and now outperforms us.Taking notes from Finland, the LiiNK Project (Let’s Inspire Innovation ’N Kids) is on a mission to bring play back to schools to “bridge the gap between academics and the social, emotional and healthy well-being of children. The LiiNK Project aims to develop the whole child through increased recess and character development.” They want schools to send kids outside for unstructured play four times a day, and they advocate that ethics be brought back to the school day as well.The program started in the 2015–2016 school year with four schools in Texas that used the program and four other schools that served as controls. Although it’s too early for definitive results, the short-term ones look promising. Kids in the program schools focused better than those in the control groups during the year, and reports of bullying were down. This year it is being used in 14 public schools in six school districts in Texas and Oklahoma.Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their dexterity, imagination, and cognitive, physical, and emotional strengths. Play is how children strengthen social bonds and learn they are not helpless. Montessori schools and Tools of the Mind curriculums are designed to capitalize to great effect on the benefits of self-directed free play and student-initiated activities.The LiiNK Project makes a persuasive argument for more play and character building in the school day by comparing Finland to the U.S. The LiiNK Project asserts that if U.S. schools repurposed six hours of schoolday content a week to recess and ethics, U.S. schools would still have two more hours of content per day than in Finland’s schools.Valerie Strauss covers education for the Washington Post, and it’s not the first time she’s written about the importance of play. Strauss writes that the LiiNK Project was developed and is directed at Texas Christian University by Debbie Rhea, a professor and associate dean of research in the Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences. “I started the program because I was tired of seeing students burn out by third grade, teachers burn out in five years, and schools that focused primarily on testing from the time children entered in pre-K or K all the way through high school,” Rhea wrote in an email to Strauss.In this era of exalting technological change, where the familiar feels more and more unfamiliar on our way to the singularity, we can trust that innovative nonprofit initiatives like LiiNK will make the old new again and help us hold on to the best of humanity.—James SchafferShare196TweetShareEmail196 Shareslast_img read more
