Borja Garcia (Madrid, November 2, 1990) chat with AS on the phone and explains how he is carrying the confinement. Follow the marked guidelines by the Girona technical staff and the nutritionist with the illusion that the League to resume soonor. He does not want the season to be canceled because he intends ascend to First. He is self-critical about his performance, “I can still give much more” and refuses to talk about the future. The last summer discarded Primera offers to continue in Girona. If there is no promotion …How do you handle confinement?There are boring moments, but we must be responsible, supportive and stay at home. When all this happens there will be time to go outside.What are you trying to distract yourself with?With everything I can (jokes). I speak with family and friends and I’m from television, I don’t have a console. I watch series, movies and sports that play. I really like the street, but now you can’t go out so I take the opportunity to train.The coaching staff sends them training guidelines. Are you having a hard time working out at home?Yes. Besides, obviously, it is not the same to be on a soccer field than at home. I try to do as much as possible, follow the guidelines of the technicians and the nutritionist well for when we return to train, do it in the best way and have no problem. We have a very important goal this year and we cannot waste time.What information do they request from the technical staff?Every morning we send photographs of the weight and report our physical and emotional state and the hours of sleep. With the nutritionist we also have an almost daily deal because we ask him for advice and follow his recommendations so as not to overdo it. Eating well is very important. Do you think the League will resume?We are with uncertainty. It is clear that we want to finish the League as it is because we have a very important objective such as promotion, but there is something even more vital than health. We want to train and play again, but first everyone’s safety must be guaranteed.What do you think of the option to cancel this League?I wouldn’t see it fair. Safety must first be ensured and, once this pandemic is over, resume competition. There are 11 games left, which are many, and I would not care to play them in summer or when it was. You have to compete because the achievements of the teams must be decided on the field, not in the offices.Would you be willing to play without an audience?Football without the fans loses its essence. We like to play with our fans in the stands because they live it just like we do. Football always with an audience. A sports worker and one of his colleagues tested positive for coronavirus. Worried?Yes, but like the entire population. We want a quick recovery for everyone and what we must do is stay home and help in any way we can. We must have peace of mind.His Girona currently occupies playoff positions. Did this break come in one of your best moments?Yes, because we had a good streak of games without losing and we were, and still are, convinced of being able to make a great final stretch of the season. We hope to play again and make our goal come true, which is to move up. Are they able to directly upload to Primera?That is what we will fight for. The team is eager to have more regularity because it is true that we have as a pending task to make a definitive leap. When it was possible to get hooked to the first two classified it has not been achieved. It can be achieved because that is why many of us stayed this season, to return Girona to First Division.In the future key. What would happen if Girona failed to climb? Will you follow or accept any offer you have from Primera?I have a valid contract here. I am ambitious and I think we can achieve the goal this year. I’m here for it and I don’t think further.Do you see your team ready to play a hypothetical promotion playoff?Definitely. We are a few of us who have lived through the playoff and would fight to reach the goal. Of course, we do not rule out reaching the two positions above. But in these uncertain times it is difficult to talk about it. We must go day by day.How do you rate your season?I can still give much more. There have been days in which I have been well, but I must demand myself. I hope that the League resumes and demonstrate all my football.Injuries have punished them this season. The last to fall was Brandon …Yes, we are not having luck. Valery in preseason, Aday also had a problem and Brandon will no longer play this course. He is a person who brought joy, fresh air to the team and was sporty at his best. These days of break we hope that everyone gets well.Some First and Second clubs have done an ERTE. Has the club communicated any of this to you?What we want is for this to happen as soon as possible and if we can help in any way we will.What message do you want to send to the Girona fans?Let them stay home and try to pass the time as well as possible. It is a moment of union, of taking care of yourself. We hope to be playing in Montilivi soon, celebrate victories and at the end of the season, promotion.
It took eight long years to build the new Signature Bridge. When it finally opened on Nov. 4, a minister called it the pride of the city and likened it to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.Now, just days after it was inaugurated, the Indian government’s flagship engineering marvel has become a site for dangerous selfies, piles of garbage and absurd traffic violations.“We did not expect that there would be such a craze around this bridge,” said Shurbir Singh, managing director of the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp. (DTTDC), speaking to the Indian Express newspaper.The 2,214-foot asymmetrical bridge was built across the Yamuna River and connects north Delhi to Wazirabad, an increasingly populated area to its east. The cable-stayed structure also has a 505-foot-high viewing gallery.According to the Express, in just two days, police recorded 53 cases of improper parking and 24 one-way violations, and they had to tow away 27 vehicles.According to news reports in India, the bridge is littered with parked cars and thrill-seekers climbing the bridge’s suspension cables to take hands-free selfies. Street hawkers have set up stalls to capitalize on the bridge’s popularity.“The government has done a great job, but people are making the bridge dirty. It is attracting a lot of tourists for sure, but it is disorganized,” said one visitor, Om Prakash Sharma, speaking to the Hindu newspaper.India’s rapid economic growth over the past three decades is finally starting to deliver long-awaited urban infrastructure.Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised flashy new transport links, including a $17 billion bullet train and 53,000 miles of new roads.According to a recent study by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, about half of the world’s selfie-related deaths between 2011 and 2017 happened in India.The city of Mumbai has even introduced “no selfie zones” to prevent reckless selfie-taking.(c) 2018, The Washington Post Related Items
