first_imgIraola: “It’s hard to believe that there have been six goals in this match“The coach of Mirandés, Andoni Iraola, acknowledges being satisfied with the point achieved in time of extension. He admits that he could not easily develop the game by bands: “It is hard to believe that there have been six goals in this match. There have been few scoring chances and you finish 3-3. We were not bad in the first half, but more has been played to what Cadiz wanted than what we wanted. The opposite has happened to us in the first leg, which was Cádiz who won in the last minutes. He knows the point well. “He acknowledges not being able to develop his football by band: “We are a team that is very good in transitions. We generate many occasions, but with Cádiz it is difficult. We have powerful bands but their sides have been very well defensively, both Iza and Pacha (Espino), so we have run out of Many occasions”.Finally he claimed that anything could happen during the meeting: “The game was not settled anywhere. Since there have not been many occasions for either team. When it seemed that the last goal of Cadiz was going to be the tip, our two goals have come.” The cadist technician describes the encounter as strange. “The game on our part without being very well, more or less controlled, but we have lacked one against one. In the back we have improved, without being fresh we have made three goals. I do not know what happened, every time we They arrived was goal. You have to try not to throw a goal. Two shots from outside the area and a foul shot. “He did not dislike the defensive part despite the result. “Defensively we have not been bad. If we when we have it and we are winning and you end up in your area it costs them more work. They have made us three goals and we have to analyze it to see if there is a way to correct it, it is difficult but we must do it “.Restlessness. “There are symptoms that there are things that we do not improve. It was important to win to give us some peace of mind. Four goals the Numancia and three the Mirandés, there will be people who see it normal, I do not, if you want to be up they can not mark you.”As for the locker room he said that the players had been found “Be quiet and with low heads. They are incredulous because they don’t know what happened.”last_img read more


Professional Santas in US earn up to 20000 a year

first_imgSomething for the weekend: professional Santas accrue earnings of up to $20,000 (£15,644) in a year, according to a recent article on US news and opinion website Vox.Baltimore-based Santa Brian Marchetti told author Zachary Crockett that he gets around 110 gigs over the holiday season, working the circuit of corporate events, home visits, office parties and restaurant meet-and-greets.He is one of the Santas who “choose to act like independent businessmen”, charging anywhere from $100 (£78) to $350 (£274) an hour. With prime season starting the day after Thanksgiving and running to early January, Santas like Marchetti can bank around $20,000 on a good year.On a lower level, there are Santas who vie for smaller shopping mall gigs, which pay a salary between $6,000 (£4,693) and $15,000 (£11,733) for 40 consecutive days of six-hour shifts.According to data from booking website GigSalad, there are more than 1,200 professional Santas working in the US.However, there can’t be many as successful as Ed Taylor, otherwise known as Santa Ed, who claims to earn in excess of $100,000 (£78,220) a year. His gigs include TV programme the Ellen DeGeneres Show, private events with basketball team Los Angeles Lakers and American football team Los Angeles Rams, and company parties at internet giants Facebook and Pinterest.Taylor has even set up an online school, the Santa Claus Conservatory, where he charges budding Santas $197 for a series of courses. So far, he’s attracted 900 clients.Here at Employee Benefits, we’re aware some people might not take the job of shopping mall Santa seriously, but with earning potential like that, it’s snow joke. However, we think the chances of getting the sack must be very high.last_img read more


Postmedia partners with tech news service The Logic Another bet on journalism

first_imgPostmedia partners with tech news service The Logic: ‘Another bet on journalism’ The deal will see Postmedia invest in The Logic and offer a selection of its work through online products including the National Post and various city papers Postmedia Network, Inc., the company that owns the National Post, will take a minority interest in The Logic, a subscription-based online news service that reports on the innovation economy.The deal is in its early stages and terms have not yet been agreed, but a letter of intent signed Wednesday will see Postmedia invest in The Logic and offer a selection of its work through online products including the National Post and various city papers.Some of The Logic’s content will be available to National Post readers, while some will remain restricted to paying subscribers.The Logic launched last year as a subscription based news service that also offers conference calls and daily briefings focused on tech and innovation. It has published ground-breaking work on issues such as Toronto’s dealings with Sidewalk Labs, and Facebook’s controversial advertising policies.The innovation economy is thriving in Canada and The Logic has tapped into the stories and insights that make it tick What you need to know about passing the family cottage to the next generation May 22, 201910:07 PM EDTLast UpdatedMay 22, 201910:11 PM EDT Filed under News 0 Comments Share this storyPostmedia partners with tech news service The Logic: ‘Another bet on journalism’ Tumblr Pinterest Google+ LinkedIn Twitter Reddit Email Facebook advertisement Headed by David Skok, formerly of the Toronto Star and Boston Globe, The Logic will retain its independence, and will continue to serve its community of subscribers, while also trying to expand it through the vastly larger distribution network of Postmedia.“The premise is that tech is not a siloed vertical, it really is the future of Canada,” Skok said in an interview. For a small startup, he said the investment and access to distribution will allow the news operation to grow and hire more journalists.Skok said that offering for free what it has so far charged money for will not dilute the value of his team’s work any more than the syndication strategies used by large American media outlets such as The New York Times and Washington Post. On the contrary, he expects it to lead to more subscribers through greater visibility.“It’s another bet on journalism for Postmedia,” said Postmedia CEO Andrew MacLeod in an interview.He described the partnership as a “graceful” way of simultaneously chasing the proven potential of digital subscriptions, while not threatening the company’s broader strategy of digital advertising.Putting up increasingly strict paywalls in pursuit of subscription dollars is a common strategy, but can be at cross-purposes to a digital advertising strategy that aims at the largest possible audience.MacLeod said there is evidence, however, that people are willing to pay for certain “bespoke” content bundles, such as The Logic, and these can be profitable.MacLeod also described the investment as something of a test for that strategy, which could be replicated in areas other than the innovation economy, such as food and wine or sports.“The innovation economy is thriving in Canada and The Logic has tapped into the stories and insights that make it tick while demonstrating, in a very short period of time, its strength and credibility in the space,” MacLeod said in a statement. “Partnering with The Logic provides the opportunity to build, grow and validate digital subscription models which are showing increasing traction around the world.”• Email: jbrean@nationalpost.com | Twitter: Comment More Joseph Brean Join the conversation → Sponsored By: Postmedia CEO Andrew MacLeod: “Partnering with The Logic provides the opportunity to build, grow and validate digital subscription models which are showing increasing traction around the world.”Peter J.
