Work absenteeism calendar: know the most missed days to work in Spain

first_imgRisk of losing your job for a few hours off does not compensateThey wanted to discover what days people excuse themselves for not going to work Image: iStock To risk losing your job for a few hours of rest does not compensate, but there are people who really do not think about that situation and do not care to tell a lie so as not to have to be in their job. The people behind the Zippia website have wanted to discover to what extent this fact is true and have carried out an analysis to find out which days people need more to work. To carry it out, they have analyzed the traffic of users who have received an article called “Three tips to warn that you are sick (even if you are not really)”. They have done so by comparing the number of users of a day with the number of those of the previous day so that no Google algorithm could affect the positioning of the article and therefore the result.Days may vary if there is a holiday nearby As a result, Zippia found that 20% of users accessed the article on Mondays of each week, while Fridays were the least popular days. There were also variations if there was a holiday nearby, such as the day after Christmas day that was the one that most people called to say they were sick.This analysis also resulted in the existence of 3 Mondays of the year in which the number of users increased in an exaggerated way but without any reason. These days were June 24, August 12 and October 21.center_img Whoever says that he has just got up in the morning has not considered missing work, he lies. Although we have never done so, the fatigue we have when being freshly raised, makes our mind fantasize about some excuse for not having to fulfill our labor obligations.last_img read more

Historic hype, pure draw and two new in the Super Cup

first_imgDates of the semifinalsThere is no time for rest and next week the Copa del Rey semifinals will be played. There is no official confirmation, but, in principle, they will be played next Wednesday, February 12 and Thursday, February 13. The return will have to wait. In between, the Champions League round of 16. The departure of these is divided into two weeks, so there will be no news until the week of Wednesday, March 4, date in which the two matches will be played that will definitely decide the two teams that will play the title in La Cartuja.Super Cup matchesThe Supercopa bases also establish that the runner-up of the Copa del Rey must be measured in the semifinals with the League champion. As it happened last season, Barcelona had both characteristics, so There was a pure draw that matched Real Madrid with Valencia and the Blaugrana team with Atlético. The two Madrid won their duel and faced each other in the grand final. In her, those of Zidane won the first trophy of the new era in the penalty shootout.A first edition with the greatsValencia, Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid, as great powers of national football, were the participants of the first edition of the Spanish Super Cup in the Final Four format. While the competition bases make it the strongest to participate in the Saudi Arabia tournament, if a team gives the bell and plays the Copa del Rey final against all odds it will have its historic opportunity. “My counselors are already preparing turbans and everything to go to Arabia. We are prepared,” he said with a laugh Alfredo de Miguel, president of Mirandés in El Larguero. Granada, Real Sociedad, Mirandés and Athletic sigh for it.Results of the quarterfinalsAthletic 1 – Barcelona 0Real Madrid 3 – Real Sociedad 4Mirandés 4 – Villarreal 2Granada 2 – Mirandés 1 In the semifinals of the Copa del Rey there will be more at stake than the illusion of reaching the final of La Cartuja. And it is that the two winners of the crosses will automatically seal their classification for the Spain Supercup, to be held in January 2021 in Saudi Arabia. In other words, regardless of what chance has, or Granada or Mirandés or Real Sociedad or Athletic Club will be released in the new format. It is no longer possible for the Cup final to host the first two of LaLiga Santander, except for drastic and unlikely change in the classification. In this way, the new Supercopa of Spain will have two new teams, which were not present in the same edition. The new format of the KO tournament has not left anyone indifferent, with a historic hype, made up of four clubs that don’t even play European competitions. Four for a dream. However, none of the Copa semifinalists will get into the Super Cup because they are one of the four final survivors. To do so, you must win your tie and qualify for the match by the title. The same has happened this season: Barcelona was the League champion and finalist of the KO tournament, so one of the places was still to be decided. The Valencia, champion, he had it insured and Atlético, second in the First Division, too. Who was going to stop the remaining one was debated and it was decided not to stay in the semifinals but to stop for the third of LaLiga, as collected in the bases of the competition. This year, the two finalists will enter the Super Cup directly and will be accompanied by the first two of LaLiga Santander.Pure drawThe draw for the Copa del Rey (Friday, 13:00, from Las Rozas and on the official RFEF channels) will match the four survivors of the KO tournament without any conditioner. The qualifiers will be back and forth, as in the previous format. The Mirandés, which has enjoyed the privilege of the field factor because of its status as a minor team, will no longer have it, but it will depend on what chance brings. This way, you can play both at home and away.last_img read more

Russian footballers face jail after ‘racist’ assault

first_imgOn Monday Krasnodar midfielder Mamaev and Zenit Saint Petersburg forward Kokorin attacked two Russian trade ministry officials in an upscale Moscow cafe.Video footage showed one of the officials, Denis Pak, an ethnic Korean, being hit with a chair while eating a meal.“They started to mock (Pak’s) ethnicity” and assaulted him when he made a critical comment, Pak’s lawyer Gennadiy Udunyan told Russian state television. “He has a concussion.”Before the cafe assault the footballers attacked the driver of a television host and damaged her Mercedes in a separate incident on Monday. The driver was hospitalised with injuries and a criminal probe was opened.Public outrage quickly snowballed into a public shaming campaign on national television, which even published a list of Russian footballers who were convicted in the past.The Russian Premier League condemned Mamaev and Kokorin, saying they should face “severe” punishment.“The Russian Premier League expresses its outrage and strongly condemns their (players’) rowdy behaviour,” it said in a statement.“This act not only casts a shadow over the glorious names of FC Zenit and FC Krasnodar but all of Russian football.“We believe that those responsible should be punished in the most severe way. There is no place for hooligans in football!”– ‘Disgusting behaviour’ –Kremlin-controlled state television featured a host of industry representatives and commentators angrily slamming the attack.“I think law enforcement agencies will qualify this as hooliganism and punishment for this is quite severe — up to five years in prison,” Igor Lebedev, a member of the Russian Football Union’s executive committee, said in televised remarks.Russian Premier League club Krasnodar pledged to do everything to terminate Mamaev’s contract, while Zenit said Kokorin’s role in the incident was “disgusting”.“We are currently looking into how to terminate a contract with the player,” FC Krasnodar said.The club said Mamaev, 30, would have to pay “the largest possible fine” and would be barred from training with the first team for the time being.“What we saw in the video is outrageous,” it added.FC Zenit said Kokorin, 27, would be disciplined pending the outcome of the police investigation.“Zenit management and fans feel nothing but disappointment that one of the country’s most talented footballers behaved in a disgusting manner,” the club said.– ‘This is racism’ –Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin — “just like the whole country” — was aware of the incident and described the video as “rather unpleasant”.Sports commentator Dmitry Guberniev called the attack shameful.“This is racism against which FIFA wages an uncompromising fight,” he said in televised remarks.After the assault Pak and the other official, Sergei Gaisin, sought medical assistance before reporting the incident to the police.It is not the first time the players’ behaviour has raised eyebrows.Russia’s Football Union suspended the pair in July 2016 after a video emerged from a Monte Carlo nightclub where Mamaev and Kokorin allegedly spent $296,000 (258,000 euros) on a champagne-fuelled party following Euro 2016, where Russia flopped.Kokorin, who sat out this year’s World Cup with a knee injury, later apologised for his behaviour and was welcomed back into the national team.Mamaev last played for the national side at Euro 2016, when they finished bottom of their group.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Zenit Saint Petersburg have said they will discipline Alexander Kokorin (L) © AFP/File / OLGA MALTSEVAMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Oct 9 – Disgraced Russian football players Pavel Mamaev and Alexander Kokorin could face up to five years in prison for assaulting a government official at a Moscow cafe, in a case that sparked outrage in Russia on Tuesday.The assault by the players — both former Russian internationals who have courted controversy in the past — has prompted the interior ministry to open a criminal probe while the Kremlin described the incident as “unpleasant”.last_img read more

County plans to boost public safety

first_imgBolstered by a property tax windfall in a surging housing market, Los Angeles County officials on Monday unveiled a $19.3 billion budget proposal designed to boost public safety and homeless services and improve nursing care at public hospitals. Skyrocketing home prices have allowed the county to restore some of the services it slashed during the state budget crisis that also hammered local governments. But officials cautioned they plan to take a conservative approach to growth so as not to be over-extended if the economy heads downward. “We have a strong, stable local economy, but we are still recovering from having to make critical service cuts in recent years, including closing jails and not hiring new deputies,” said David Janssen, the county’s chief administrative officer, as he unveiled the proposed budget for fiscal 2006-07. “We have been dependent on the \ market. It’s both negative and positive in a good market and it’s scary as hell if you look at what happened in 1991.” “We’ve been working for more than a year, trying to get community input into what the needs are – services and materials,” said Sorensen Library spokeswoman Nancy Mahr. “We’re going to build a new library that will be much larger.” Plans are still in the preliminary stages, and Mahr said the new library likely would be completed in spring 2008. Among the big-ticket programs are more than $40 million to reopen jails and $25 million to increase jail security. The plan also includes $12 million for a radio system to streamline communications between fire and law-enforcement personnel and $19.4 million to fulfill a federal mandate to beef up staffing at the county’s juvenile halls. The budget would fund nearly 3,000 employees in the critical areas of health, police and child welfare services – areas that advocates have long said face severe shortages. Janssen noted that one of the county’s most ambitious projects – a $100 million program to create five regional homeless facilities – isn’t included in the plan released Monday. Approved April 4 – after the document had been prepared – the homeless plan will be among the changes made before the Board of Supervisors finalizes the budget in June. Under the proposal, the Department of Children and Family Services, which is responsible for 38,000 children, would receive $16.6 million to hire 466 people. Los Angeles County is expected to bring in $557 million in new revenue in the 2006-2007 fiscal year. Although there was an assumed growth of 8.5 percent in property tax revenue, 6.1 percent in vehicle license fees, and 3.5 percent in sales tax revenue, Janssen halved those estimates when he set spending projections to continue the county’s conservative spending plans. Still, taxpayer advocates said the county needs to look for every opportunity to save money. “Given the fact revenues are up, we would like to see more cost saving put into place in case the economy does turn down,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association. But Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said that’s exactly what county officials have been working to do. “This is a financially sound budget. Our ability to invest more to respond to the crisis in jails, the homeless, at the probation department, the health and department of children and family services… is a product of a decade of fiscal discipline,” Yaroslavsky said. “What this is is a down-payment on a meaningful and quantifiable improvement of services in the critical areas of health, public safety and child welfare.” Supervisor Michael Antonovich issued a statement saying he’d hoped that even more money would be allocated to reopening jails and beefing up the Sheriff’s Department. “The proposed budget ignores the Sheriff’s request for funding to fill positions at sheriff’s stations, $1.9 million dollars for additional positions in the homicide bureau and funding to increase the staff-to-inmate ratio at Mens Central Jail,” he said. An aide to Sheriff Lee Baca said the department was pleased with the budget proposal. “This is encouraging and it’s a step in the right direction in making our jails more secure, even safer,” said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The Department of Health Services will get a $156 million boost to cover operational costs that include hiring more than 800 employees, half of them nurses. But the department still faces looming financial problems as it struggles to cover cost for indigent patients, more than two-thirds of the patient it serves. “We are still in a crisis mode but this is a step in the right direction,” said Efrain Munoz, the health department controller. The budget is actually 2.5 percent less than the $19.9 billion budget for the current fiscal year, Janssen said. He said the drop is the result of one-time expenditures this year, and most county departments will actually see spending increases next year. The budget will be presented to the Board of Supervisors today, with public hearings scheduled to begin May 1.

The budget included money promised earlier this year by the county and long awaited by West Whittier residents to expand the tiny Sorensen Library, the county’s smallest library at a mere 1,048 square feet. The budget sets aside $7.5million for the expansion project. Since learning of the promised funding, residents have been meeting regularly with county library officials to discuss what they would like included in the library’s design.

first_imgGAA fans are up in arms after dozens of them received parking tickets in the post after the recent Senior League Final.The fans from both Ardara and Naomh Conaill (Glenties) got the shock €40 fines this week after the game at St.Eunan’s O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny in November12th last.The motorists were forced to park outside the ground after the St.Eunan’s car park filled up very quickly because of the huge crowd attending the game. A number of fans spoken to by said the arrival of the fine in the post this week was the first they knew abut it.All of those we have spoken to are adamant that they never received a parking ticket on the day.Sources close to St.Eunan’s say they are not happy by the move as they have ben trying their best to attract the big games to the club ground.We understand that an announcement had been made before the game asking fans who had been doubled-parked close to the roundabout opposite the entrance to the ground to move their cars. Many of these cars were removed and no other announcement was made.One fan who received a parking fine said he was livid that Gardai had chosen to fine fans.“It was not a case that the road had been blocked. Yes, cars were parked up on footpaths but that has always been the case.“I for one never received any parking ticket on the day and I was shocked when I got the fine in the post this week.“It’s not the money as much as that annoys me. But it’s the fact that I could not have parked anywhere else. “There was a huge amount of cars trying to park. Personally I was parked on a very wide footpath. I could have parked on the road but I would have been blocking traffic and I didn’t want to do that.“I’m sure St.Eunan’s are annoyed by this because this heavy-handed approach by Gardai helps nobody,” he said.© 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.

first_imgCounty Minor Championship Preliminary Round – Naomh Conaill 0-5 v Naomh Muire 1-11REPORT FROM NAOMH MUIRE: Naomh Muire Minors put in a good solid and physical performance away to Naomh Conaill in Glenties this evening to advance to a 1st round tie with Dungloe which will be played next week.Following a draw in the first match in the Banks last week where Naomh Conaill could be considered unlucky not to have left with a win…..Naomh Muire were in no mood for anything other than a win tonight and they dominated the match in all departments in a park that few teams leave without a battle and where the home record at this level is strong. Our young lads were always in control and led by 9 points at HT with the aid of a fair breeze.The second half which expected Naomh Conaill to go all out to recover their deficit saw Naomh Muire’s workrate and fitness come into play and they were able to control long passages of play even if scores didn’t come.The established and older lads such as Patrick Rodgers, Jack O’Brien, James Ferry, Patrick Gillespie, Hugh the Yank, Jamie Boyle and Sean McCafferty, Shaun Burns, Adam O’Brien played as leaders tonight while there were some outstanding shifts put in by young lads who have two more years at this level like Conor White, Aidan Gillespie, Jack Boyle grew as the game went on.Darren Sweeney and Cameron Harley won the so called dirty ball and important possession at crucial times while the solid handling and effective kick outs of young Gerrard Boyle was the launch of many attacks. All subs used came on and make really strong contributions . This was a great win but only a preliminary round and the bigger challenge of Dungloe now awaits the Minors next week. Great to see a big crowd travelling tonight outnumbering the home support.  GAA: NAOMH MUIRE KNOCK NAOMH CONAILL OUT OF MINOR CHAMPIONSHIP was last modified: July 3rd, 2013 by John2Share 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:GAA: NAOMH MUIRE KNOCK NAOMH CONAILL OUT OF MINOR CHAMPIONSHIPlast_img read more
