NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL today named DR. ALLEN SILLS as the NFL’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), a new full-time position based in New York.

 

Dr. Sills joins the NFL from Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he serves as Professor of Neurological Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, and Founder and Co-Director of the Vanderbilt Sports Concussion Center.

 

Dr. Sills, a neurosurgeon who has specialized in the treatment of athletes, will strengthen the NFL’s ongoing efforts to advance the health and safety of the sport. He will work closely with team medical staffs across the league, the NFL Players Association and its advisors and the many medical and scientific experts who comprise the NFL’s medical committees and guide the NFL’s health and research efforts.

 

“There is no higher priority for the NFL than player health and safety and we continually seek to raise our standards and then surpass them,” said Commissioner Goodell. “We sought a highly-credentialed physician and leader with experience as a clinician and researcher, and Dr. Sills’ extensive experience caring for athletes makes him the right choice for this important position.”

 

“We conducted an intensive international search which included many leading experts in sports medicine,” said Dr. John York, Co-chairman, San Francisco 49ers and Chairman of the NFL Owners’ Health and Safety Advisory Committee.  “Dr. Sills stood out among the highly credentialed and qualified applicants.”

 

The appointment follows a rigorous search conducted by a premier panel of health and medical experts led by DR. BETSY NABEL, Chief Health and Medical Advisor to the NFL and President of Brigham Health, and including DR.

ROBERT CANTU, Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery and Co-Director, Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, Boston University School of Medicine, and PETER FOSS, GE Healthcare.

 

The panel worked closely with DR. JOHN YORK, and JEFF MILLER, NFL Executive Vice President of Health and Safety Initiatives. The NFL consulted with the NFL Players Association, including interviewing the final candidates. Dr. Sills will be reporting to Miller.

 

“I have been impressed by the talent and experience of the candidates I have met during this process,” said Dr. Betsy Nabel. “Dr. Sills has years of experience on the frontlines of both research and patient care, and I am confident that Dr. Sills will use this platform to continue his work to improve sports health and safety in the NFL and for all athletes.”

 

“Hiring Dr. Sills is a touchdown for the NFL,” said Dr. Robert Cantu. “He is an international leader for his work on concussions in sports. I look forward to working with him to further advance the NFL’s ongoing commitment to the health and safety of sports.”

 

Throughout his distinguished career, Dr. Sills has worked with numerous professional and collegiate sports programs. In addition to providing care for players on NFL sidelines as an Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultant, he has served as a neurological consultant to the NCAA and the International Equestrian Foundation (FEI). He has also worked as consulting neurosurgeon for the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, the NHL’s Nashville Predators, the US Equestrian Foundation and all Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and Mississippi State University athletic teams.

 

“Allen Sills is an exceptional leader who will bring the perspective of a practicing neurosurgeon to this important position,” said Dr. Reid Thompson, Chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “He is an avid athlete and gifted surgeon with a passion for the care of elite athletes. With a combination of energy, vision and absolute integrity he is an inspired choice to become the first Chief Medical Officer of the NFL.”

 

Dr. Sills is an active researcher who has published more than 150 scientific articles and presentations including more than 40 in the last five years on the topic of sports concussion. Heis a member of the Concussion in Sport Group, which publishes international standards regarding concussion in sport.

GULLS CLINCH BERTH IN CALDER CUP PLAYOFFS DESPITE 3-1 LOSS TO CONDORS

Mar 27, 2017

GULLS CLINCH BERTH IN CALDER CUP PLAYOFFS DESPITE 3-1 LOSS TO CONDORS

 

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Gulls (38-17-3-2, 81 pts.) saw their seven-game home win streak come to an end in a 3-1 loss to the Bakersfield Condors (30-23-5-1; 66 pts.) in front of 12,449 fans at Valley View Casino Center on Saturday night. Despite the loss, San Diego clinched a second-consecutive Calder Cup playoff berth with Stockton’s 5-4 shootout loss to Texas earlier this evening.

 

“Making the playoffs was one of our goals before the season started,” said Gulls defenseman Nate Guenin. “I think we expected to make it and now we need to get ready for that and hope to peak at the right time.”

 

The Gulls are still 10-3-1-0 in their last 14 games and have won 14 of the last 19 games (14-4-1-0). San Diego has also earned standings points in 15 of the last 20 (14-5-1-0), as well as points in 31 of 37 contests since Christmas (27-6-2-2).

 

San Diego came out of the gates in the opening frame peppering Bakersfield goaltender Jonas Gustavsson (8-5-1) with plenty of shots through the first 10 minutes. The Gulls best chance of the period came on a power play early in the period on Keaton Thompson’s wrist shot that rang off the post.

 

Late in the period with Bakersfield shorthanded once again, the Gulls momentum came to a halt when Anton Lander sniped a wrist shot over Gulls goaltender Kevin Boyle’s shoulder at 16:02 to give the Condors a 1-0 lead. Lander has notched 2-5=7 points in his last five games and 23-26=49 points in only 33 games played this season. The Gulls trailed 1-0 after the first 20 minutes even though they outshot the Condors 19-7.

 

Guenin took a tripping penalty at 7:43 of the middle period and Bakersfield cashed in on Joey LaLeggia’s 17th goal of the season. After some crafty passing on the power play, LaLeggia shoveled the rebound from Greg Chase’s shot past Boyle to give the Condors a 2-0 advantage.

 

San Diego pumped another 17 shots to the net in the second frame, but could still not solve Gustavsson. The 32-year-old stopped 44-of-45 shots to earn his fourth straight win.

 

Nic Kerdiles finally got the Gulls on the board at 6:52 of the third period when he deflected Keaton Thompson’s point shot past Gustavsson. The goal was Kerdiles’ first since Mar. 8 vs. SJ and Keaton Thompson’s assist gives him 0-4=4 points over the last four games.

 

San Diego’s best opportunity to tie the game came a few moments later when Tyler Morley’s bid off the rush hit the post. The Gulls would not get many chances after that as the Condors shut the door defensively.

 

Bakersfield pushed its lead back to two goals 18:08 when LaLeggia converted again on the power play. The two-goal game for LaLeggia was his third of the season and the British Columbia native is riding a four-game point streak (3-3=6).

 

San Diego hits the road next week to begin a three-game road trip with stops in Tucson and Stockton. The Gulls take on the Roadrunners in a set of back-to-backs (Mar. 31) and (Apr. 1) and travel to Stockton the following week to take on the Heat on Wednesday, Apr. 5 (7 p.m.) San Diego will return home on Friday, Apr. 7 to take on the Ontario Reign at Valley View Casino Center (7 p.m.). Fans can purchase tickets by visiting AXS.com/Gulls or by phone at (619) 359-4730.

 

NOTES: Sam Carrick added his 22nd assist of the season and now has 3-5=8 points in his last 11 games…Gulls netminder Kevin Boyle (10-5-4) made 26 saves in his fifth loss of the season…The Gulls fell to 20-12-2-1 in back-to-back games and 8-8-1-0 in the second matchup San Diego has lost two straight games for the first time since Dec. 16-17.

 

Three Stars:

  1. Jonas Gustavsson (BAK)
  2. Anton Lander (BAK)
  3. Joey LaLeggia (BAK)

MANCHESTER (March 25, 2017) Jorge “El Niño de Oro” Linares (42-3, 27 KOs) skillfully defeated former champion Anthony “Million Dollar” Crolla (31-6, 15 KOs) to retain his WBA, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine World Lightweight Championship titles in a 12-round rematch battle that went the distance live from Manchester Arena. Showtime International Boxing will replay Linares vs. Crolla II tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHO Extreme.
Crolla showed great heart throughout the 12-round fight; Linares, however, showed even greater skill, swift footwork, speed and control to win the fight by unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring it 118-109.
In the beginning, Linares controlled rounds one and two with his jab and out-punched Crolla. Linares continued the trend through round four, controlling with his jab and using his footwork to keep Crolla at a comfortable distance. Round five intensified with both fighters throwing more punches, but it was in round seven when Linares dropped Crolla with a swift, left uppercut that it became evident he was poised to win the fight.
By round eight, both fighters worked the body with Crolla fighting back harder than previous rounds, cheered on heavily by the pro-Crolla crowd. In the final rounds, Crolla countered back throwing more punches but ultimately could not overcome Linares.
Linares vs. Crolla II was a 12-round lightweight bout for the WBC Diamond, WBA and Ring Magazine Lightweight World Championship on March 25 at the Manchester Arena presented by Matchroom Boxing in association with Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Betfred.

New York Red Bulls Red Bulls 0-0 Salt Lake

Mar 26, 2017

RED BULLS ARENA RUTERFORD NJ.BEREAVISION 25 DE MARZO  DE 2017.

En un fin de semana diezmado por la fecha FIFA,  para la clasificación al mundial Rusia 2018 los equipos de la MLS, tuvieron que tomar muchos jugadores de la banca para el juego que tenían de antemano planeado para esta fecha, fue así como los Red Bulls y el Salt Lake jugaron un partido con mucha similitud, y en cuanto al juego de hoy, fue un partido serrado, llevándose un punta a casa cada equipo ya que no hubo goles en el marcador, aunque por momentos la balanza se inclino para los de casa.

Por mas que trataron, no lograron marcar el gol de la diferencia, aunque con Wright Phillips al frente no tubo la profundidad como para anotar el gol que les diera la victoria por la mínima diferencia, aunque si hay que decir que los visitantes hicieron uso de la fuerza excesiva y se llevaron muchas tarjetas amarillas para contener los contantes ataques que los Red Bulls proponían por momentos, pero sin ningún fruto al final de el encuentro.

Pasado los 90 las cosas terminaron como empezaron, pero con la diferencia de que Jesse Marchs tubo una oportunidad inmejorable de ver a sus jugadores suplentes como de una manera paulatina pero asegura están creciendo, en cuanto a la manera de tomar con toda la seriedad posible, estos partidos de liga que en algún momento de su vida los jugaran todos los fines de semana  y no de manera ocasional como lo fue esta noche.

Un paso hacia adelante

Mar 24, 2017

Un paso hacia adelante

Long Beach, California.- Llegó al club cuando tenía 13 años. Como cualquier otro niño soñaba con algún día integrar el máximo representativo del Guadalajara y hoy gracias a lo que ha mostrado con el conjunto rojiblanco de la Segunda División Premier fue convocado para viajar con el Rebaño Sagrado a Estados Unidos para el par de encuentros de preparación por la Fecha FIFA, hecho que sin duda representará un parteaguas para la naciente carrera del mediocampista Ángel López, quien no ocultó su deseo de ir por mucho más.

“Estoy muy contento porque los ‘profes’ se fijaron en mí para estar en estos partidos, te deja una gran satisfacción dar un paso así, uno siempre quiere estar con el primer equipo, es un impulso para aumentar el esfuerzo día a día y tener la oportunidad de debitar y jugar en el torneo”, refirió el volante oriundo de San Cayetano, Nayarit.

El canterano de Chivas, quien tuvo actividad en el choque ante Monarcas en Fresno al ingresar al campo al 54’ en lugar de Josué Lázaro, compartió las palabras de aliento que el entrenador Matías Almeyda le dijo justo antes de entrar en acción, las cuales le ayudaron a tener la calma necesaria para colaborar en el desempeño colectivo del Rebaño Sagrado, aunado al cobijo de los elementos de mayor rodaje en el grupo.

“Me pidió que disfrute esto, que haga lo mismo que he realizado en Segunda División, con toda la libertad de enseñar mis condiciones; además, los jugadores de experiencia siempre te ayudan y apoyan, hacen que te sientas como en casa, eso te brinda mayor confianza al estar en el campo”, concluyó Ángel López.

Alemania pone fin al reinado estadounidense

Alemania pone fin al reinado estadounidense

Alemania vuelve a encabezar la Clasificación Mundial Femenina FIFA/Coca-Cola y pone fin al liderato estadounidense que había dado comienzo en marzo de 2015. Las campeonas de Europa han destronado a las todopoderosas estadounidenses, que han recalado en segunda posición. Y no son precisamente el único equipo que se ha movido en tres meses llenos de amistosos y torneos por invitación.

Los resultados inesperados de la Copa ­SheBelieves han sido el principal desencadenante del fin de la hegemonía estadounidense; en efecto, las anfitrionas sufrieron dos derrotas y finalizaron en último lugar, lo que ha resultado en su peor puntuación (2105) desde que fue creada la clasificación. Alemania, subcampeona de la Copa SheBelieves, aprovechó la flaqueza del conjunto de las barras y estrellas para tomar la delantera, a pesar de que también se dejó puntos en dicho torneo al ser la única selección que cayó ante las norteamericanas.

El combinado francés, que se llevó a casa el preciado trofeo, se ha acercado a las dos primeras selecciones de la tabla. Tan solo le separan 36 puntos de Alemania, lo que constituye la menor distancia entre el primer y tercer puesto del ranking desde diciembre de 2004.

Esta nueva tabla también se hace eco de la increíble racha de España, reciente vencedora de la Copa Algarve que estrena su mejor posición en el ranking (13.º) y una puntuación nunca antes lograda (1885). El equipo campeón de la Copa Chipre, Suiza, ha batido su propio récord de puntos (1866), mientras que también han registrado avances notables selecciones como Inglaterra (4.º, +1), Suecia (6.º, +2), Islandia (18.º, +2) e Irlanda del Norte (55.º, +4).

Italia, al contrario, ha sufrido un descalabro descendiendo hasta su peor clasificación de la historia (19.º) al perder los tres encuentros disputados en la Copa Chipre.

En la zona más baja, el ranking ha vuelto a dar la bienvenida a tres combinados —Afganistán, Azerbaiyán y Bután— a la par que se ha despedido de otros quince por inactividad prolongada. Esta actividad frenética ha reposicionado gran parte de las selecciones que componen la lista, en la que nada menos que 20 países lograron su mejor clasificación de todos los tiempos.

La próxima Clasificación Mundial Femenina FIFA/Coca-Cola se publicará el 23 de junio de 2017.

INDIO, CALIF. (March 23, 2017) Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN debuted with a bang Thursday night as rising middleweight contender Jason “El Animal” Quigley (13-0, 10 KOs) took home the NABF middleweight championship, earning a hard-fought 10-round unanimous decision over a game Glen “Jersey Boy” Tapia (23-4, 15 KOs) in the main event before a sold out crowd at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and televised live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.
“I’m taking this little bambino [NABF belt] home with me, to my people in Donegal, Ireland and celebrate with my loved ones,” said Quigley. “Then when I come back, I’m going to celebrate with my team. Everyone here has been on my team since my performance on the Canelo-Lara undercard, and this is a stepping stone to many more belts that are coming my way.”
“I felt slow and sluggish this fight,” said Tapia. “I feel like I didn’t even get to do to him what I trained in camp for. I was able to put pressure on him and hurt him a couple of times. This was not my best performance.”
In the co-main event, former IBF Bantamweight World Champion Randy “El Matador” Caballero (24-0, 14 KOs) came back from a lengthy layoff in superb style, winning the NABF Super Bantamweight championship by out slugging Jesus “Estrella” Ruiz (35-8-5, 24 KOs) of Nogales, Mexico over 10 rounds.
“This was the absolute best way to come back,” Caballero said. “My goal is to become a world champion, and Golden Boy knows that. With the new NABF title, and coming back with that performance, I’m on a high right now. My opponent was tough, but I stayed calm, and was able to come out on top.”
 “I am satisfied with our performance in the ring, and the better man won tonight,” Ruiz said. “That’s boxing. We gave it our all, and we are content with that.”
Opening up the televised portion of the night on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist and highly decorated amateur Marlen Esparza (1-0) of Houston, TX made a successful professional debut, defeating Rachel Sazoff (0-3) of Hamilton Township, New Jersey by shutout unanimous decision.
“This was such a big stage, and fighting in front of a crowd like this for the first time was something special,” Esparza said. “I’m glad we got the W, but I was honestly looking to knock her out. I’m glad that I got this fight out of the way – I have a lot to grow in. She was a tough fighter, and she took a lot of my punches.”
 “I’m so grateful for the opportunity to take part in this show,” said Sazoff. “When I was approached by her camp for the fight, I couldn’t say no. It was a great way to challenge myself, and I think that Marlen is a great fighter. I’ve been in combat sports since I was five. I live for this stuff.”
As part of the live stream on ESPN3 hot prospect Hector “El Finito” Tanajara, Jr. (8-0, 4 KOs) faced Daniel Perales (7-7-1, 5 KOs) of Monterey, Mexico in a six-round lightweight fight. Despite Tanajara, Jr. suffering his first ever knock down in the second round, the San Antonio native kept his poise to sweep the rest of the rounds and take home a unanimous decision.
“I got too confident in the second round, and when I landed my shots I wasn’t expecting him to counter the way he did resulting in me hitting the mat,” said Tanajara, Jr. “After that, I got angry but my corner told me to just continue to outbox him. I noticed his eye was starting to swell towards the end, and so I started to use it as a target in hopes of getting the knock out. We got the win still.”

Opening up the live stream, former world champion Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (23-7, 7 KOs) took on Hector “Charro Negro” Velasquez (57-29-3, 39 KOs) in an eight round welterweight bout. Herrera issued a workman-like performance, grinding out a shutout unanimous decision victory.
“I needed to get this win, regardless of how I got it,” said Herrera. “I’ve been in a lot of tough fights, and I needed this win as a confidence booster. I’m glad that I came out of this fight pretty clean.”
IBF number one middleweight contender Tureano Johnson (20-1, 14 KOs) maintained his status with a second round knockout victory over Fabiano Pena (16-7-1, 13 KOs). Johnson returned to the ring putting in solid bodywork on his opponent, who hit the mat twice during the second round. Pena’s corner stopped the fight during the second round, awarding the technical knock out victory to Johnson at the 2:38 mark.

“I was pretty anxious to enter the ring after such a long absence, but I was reminded by my team that I am the IBF #1 ranked middleweight contender,” said Johnson. “Being absent for so long for my rotator cuff was not ideal, and I know that injuries happen, but now that we got this fight out of the way and we shook out the nerves a bit. I am ready to take on the big guys out there and demonstrate that I am still someone to fear in this division.”
In the evening’s opening bout, Azat “Attack” Hovhannisyan (11-2, 10 KOs) scored a technical knock out victory over Diuhl Olgin (10-7-2, 9 KOs) in an eight-round super bantamweight bout. Azat stuck to his plan in working the body, countering and weaving through Olguin’s punches. During the third round, there was an accidental head butt, which left a mark on both the fighters. The referee stopped the bout at the tail end of the sixth round, at 2:40 seconds.

“We knew we were going to have to endure some tough punches from him, and we were expecting him to come forward,” said Azat. “We had a great training camp, and I had some tough sparring partners, but we got what we wanted.”

On his current training camp:
“Like always, training camp has been tough. My team and I put in a lot of hard work. I have some great sparring in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, with some top-level guys.  I know all the hard work will pay off on fight night.  There are a couple of more days left before we wrap camp up.  All in all, it’s been a great camp.”
On facing Kyrone Davis:
“Kyrone Davis is a very good fighter with a lot of skill.  He’s never been knocked out so I know he has a good chin.  This is a fight where the winner will get another opportunity to take his career to another level.  We have a nice game plan that we will impose on Davis.  I must take control from the first round and make my adjustments from there.”

“I’m very happy to be back fighting on FS1. This will be my third consecutive time fighting on TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS and I can’t wait.  I know a lot of my fans back home in Fresno will be tuning in.  I just want to bring another exciting fight to the fans.”

On making his 2017 debut:
“I’ve eagerly been waiting to get back in the ring since I last fought in September.  I want to make a statement being that this is my first fight in 2017.  I know if I keep winning I’ll be back in the ring with the stakes much higher.”

Senado de la República: Se realiza la Exposición fotográfica “Ecos de un Gran Pueblo”

Bereavision TV México D.F.- El Senado de la República ubicado, recibió del día 13 al 17 de Marzo, una importante presentación de 29 fotografías histórico-periodísticas en la sala del vestíbulo del edificio Hemiciclo.

“Ecos de un Gran Pueblo”, da a conocer al mundo entero la expresión unánime de cientos de miles de rostros, que cantan, lloran de alegría, meditan, oran a Dios y cada año se reúnen una y otra vez para celebrar la Santa Cena; un evento singular que realiza la Iglesia La Luz Del Mundo a nivel internacional desde su grandioso Templo sede en la Hermosa Provincia de Guadalajara, Jalisco.

El talentoso fotógrafo Rubén Gutiérrez, pudo esclarecer el sentido y esencia de las imágenes que se presentaron con el apoyo de dos importantes legisladores: la Senadora Martha Tagle Martínez y el Diputado del partido Movimiento Ciudadano, Jonadab Martínez García; que cortaron el listón de inauguración junto con el joven autor jalisciense.

En una de las gráficas en la expo de fotos, Rubén dio el significado de las 29 fotografías que fueron admiradas, el escrito decía: Naasón Joaquín García nos ha enseñado el amor al único Dios verdadero, a creer en su Hijo Jesucristo y saber que en la tierra hay misericordia por gracia de Dios. Hoy tenemos Apóstol de Jesucristo entre nosotros, Él es el Eco de nuestro corazón que se refleja en todas las naciones conquistadas y por conquistar y nosotros seremos el reflejo de su Eco, -Eco es la libertad de llevar y ser ese reflejo-.

La Iglesia La Luz del Mundo tiene presencia en 53 países, cuenta con una membresía que rebasa los 5 millones de fieles, además cuenta con 1,619 impresionantes Templos a lo largo de la República Mexicana y 971 Templos en el extranjero. El crecimiento de la Asociación Religiosa LLDM ha sido impresionante ya que el pasado 14 de febrero de 2016 registró un aumento de 50 mil fieles en un solo día; en el evento que se llamó “La Ceremonia Internacional de Bautismos”, dicha ceremonia se realizó abierta al público en general en los zócalos mas importantes de las capitales de diferentes países.

Más de 300 aficionados de los Canes Aztecas acudieron al llamado para obtener la popular “selfie” y el imborrable autógrafo de sus jugadores.

Al sonido del “Fuerza Tijuas”, los seguidores del Club Tijuana no dejaron de fluir durante el evento, en el que también se hizo presente la mascota oficial del Club Tijuana, el Xolo Mayor, quien fue la sensación para los más pequeñines que asistieron a la firma.

Los aficionados mostraron su apoyo al equipo fronterizo, y los alentaron para continuar con éxito en el Torneo Clausura 2017 de la LIGA MX. El equipo dirigido por Miguel Herrera se prepara para regresar a la acción el próximo 1 de Abril, cuando se reanude la actividad en la Fecha 12 del certamen, en la que el Club Tijuana visitará al Atlas de Guadalajara.
