Mexican police mount big hunt for kidnapped footballer

first_img Authorities gave no further details about the kidnapping or its motive. Former teammates on Mexico’s national team went on social networks to offer their support for his welfare. “A shame what happened,” goalkeeper Jesus Corona said on Twitter. “My prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time.” Similar comments came in tweets by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, defenders Diego Reyes and Miguel Layun and strikers Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Oribe Peralta, all of whom are in the United States for the Copa America competition. DIFFICULT TIME CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico (AP) : Federal and state forces mounted an operation yesterday to find kidnapped Mexican football star Alan Pulido, who was abducted in the crime-plagued northern border state of Tamaulipas. The 25-year-old Pulido is a forward for Olympiacos of Greece and was part of Mexico’s 2014 World Cup team, though he wasn’t called up for the Copa America tournament that starts this coming week. “We have information that he was intercepted by armed persons and since then his whereabouts is unknown,” said state Attorney General Ismael Quintanilla. The Tamaulipas Coordination Group that includes federal and state security agents said on its Twitter account that it was searching for the player. Reporters in the city saw an unusual deployment of troops and police in the streets, while at least two police or military-style helicopters flew overhead. A state official earlier said Pulido was kidnapped early Sunday after leaving a party near his hometown of Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas, a state that has suffered battles between major drug gangs. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to discuss a case under investigation.last_img read more

The reason Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is destined to be the next England manager

first_img 5 1. 2005 League Cup third round v Charlton (lost 5-4 on penalties) – In Mourinho’s first season in charge, Robert Huth was the guilty party as their London rivals prevailed. 3. 2007 Community Shield v Manchester United (lost 3-0 on penalties) – Possibly the most low key failure in the traditional curtain raiser, but the Blues were still unsuccessful with all their attempts including Claudio Pizzaro’s effort (pictured). 5. 2015 League Cup fourth round v Stoke (lost 5-4 on penalties) – Mourinho’s latest defeat may have come in the ‘Micky Mouse’ cup, but could it be the most damaging? Eden Hazard, perhaps typical of his recent form, was denied by Jack Butland to dump the holders out. 5 5 5 5 4. 2013 European Super Cup v Bayern Munich (lost 5-4 on penalties) – After winning the Europa League in May 2013, the Blues took European champions Bayern all the way to spotkicks in the Super Cup. Romelu Lukaku missed the decisive penalty with what proved to be his last touch in Chelsea colours. 2. 2007 Champions League semi-final v Liverpool (lost 4-1 on penalties) – The Blues’ rivalry against Liverpool hinged on their European showdowns, and this was their second agonising exit at Anfield in the space of three seasons. Geremi, who was bought on specifically to take a penalty, and Arjen Robben missed for Mourinho’s men. Jose Mourinho’s struggles might well be the flavour of the month, but Tuesday night’s penalty shootout defeat at Stoke City in the League Cup continued a remarkable trend in the Portuguese manager’s career.The cup holders’ early exit, after Eden Hazard’s decisive penalty was tipped over by Potters goalkeeper Jack Butland, means that Mourinho has now lost on all five occasions with the Blues when cup ties have gone the distance.For such a prestigious manager across European football that record may come as a surprise, especially given his success in cup competitions.In fact, the 52-year-old’s only shootout success in seven attempts came in the Suppercopa final (Italy’s version of the Community Sheild) with Inter Milan in 2008.He also oversaw an agonizing Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich while at Real Madrid in the 2012 semi-final, with Cristiano Ronaldo among those who missed from 12 yards.After his latest failure, talkSPORT has taken a look at his previous shootout defeats across his two spells at Stamford Bridge – click the yellow arrow above, right, to view them…last_img read more

How to Do Your Best Work

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now You need to do your best work.But the best work you are capable of producing isn’t always the same level of work. Sometimes you are tired and lack the energy, so your work suffers. Sometimes you are physically ill and not capable of producing any better work than you can squeeze out while you are suffering. You did your best under the conditions, but it wasn’t your best work.But most of the time you can exercise control over the two interrelated factors that allow you to do your best work. Those two factors are your energy level and your attention level.Your Energy LevelSome work simply requires more energy to do well. You have to be at your very best, your peak state, in order to do your best work at these tasks.As you energy level changes throughout the day, you are better suited for some work. You can plan your work to take advantage of the way your energy level changes. You do the work that takes the most energy to do well when you have the energy (like prospecting), and you do the work that you can do well without much energy when you don’t have it (like paperwork).I have more energy early in the morning. I try to do the most important work I have to do early each day, while I have the physical energy and the psychic RAM to do that work. I write early in the morning, and I handle all of my most difficult calls or meetings early in the day. As the day progresses, I plan tasks, activities, and meetings that don’t require as much energy.I like mornings, but your mileage may vary.Your Attention LevelYour attention level is tied up with your energy level. There are some tasks that demand your full attention, your full focus. But there are other tasks that you can do that don’t require your full attention. There are some tasks and activities that you can do while doing something else at the same time.You can plan your tasks around your attention levels too.I have an easier time focusing my attention early in the morning and later in the evening.I listen to content I want to hear and read late in the evening. If I need to read something to gain a deep understanding, I can give it my full attention after I have done all of my heavy lifting work in the morning, after I accomplish what I want to accomplish.But there some things I have to do that don’t require any real focus, and I can do more than one thing at a time. I can listen to a webinar and scan all my paperwork into Evernote at the same time. I can get the value of listening to the webinar without giving it 100% of my attention, as long as it’s not content that requires me to take notes.You do your best work when you give it the energy and attention it needs. Not every task or activity is worth your best energy and your full attention. You need to give your energy and your full attention to your most important outcomes. Build your model sales week around your energy and attention. Plan to work on the tasks and activities that don’t require your best energy or full attention for the times when your energy is lowest.QuestionsWhen is your energy level the highest throughout the day?When is your energy too low for you to do your best work?When do you have the ability to give something your full attention—with no distractions?What tasks can you do when your energy is low or your attention is split?last_img read more
