“Physical power, speed and goal”: What the USA and Portugal say about the signing of Alberth Elis with Boavista

TEN has confirmed in EXCLUSIVE that a month ago, the Honduran forward rejected a juicy offer from Toulouse of the second division of France. Economically, this proposal was much higher than the one made by the Boavista, but the “Panterita” declined because her objective was clear, to travel to Portugal.

According to what was confirmed by TEN, the financial offer that Elis received from Toulouse was close to two million euros, that is, more money for him Houston Dynamo and a better salary for the footballer, but that was not a priority for him.

For their part, we consult directly with Daniel Solis, representative of the player, to confirm this option that Elis had in France and the Costa Rican businessman confessed that in this case sports weighed more than economics, since Toulouse currently plays in the second category of French football, something that was not attractive to him to the catracho attacker.

In an interview with DIEZ, Daniel Solís also confirmed that Elis had offers from Belgium, the Middle East and Turkey, but neither was attractive to the player and his family.

Going to Boavista was, according to Elis, the best decision, because he loves the sports project and that his idea is to be able to show himself so that in a couple of years he can make the leap to a more powerful league in Europe, such as the Premier League.

Alberth Elis stamped her signature with the Good view until 2024 (for four years) and the transfer cost less than a million euros. In this club he will also be a partner of the Catracho forward Jorge Benguché, who already debuted in Portugal last Saturday, in the 3-3 draw against Nacional de Madeira, where the Honduran Bryan Róchez participates.

The PSP announced this Tuesday the arrest of six people in Greater Lisbon for crimes against public authority during the dispersal of gatherings. In one of the events, the participants, who “uttered injuries and threats” to the police, resorted to martial arts techniques to escape the authorities.

In a statement, the Lisbon Metropolitan Command of the PSP states that a detention took place on Sunday, in the parish of Mina d’Água, Amadora, before a gathering on the public road, even after the authorities had been on the spot and dispersed people, warning for the illegality of the concentration.

However, the PSP was called back to the place, where it found another gathering, one of the men said that he would not leave the space, at the same time that he directed injuries against the police. He was arrested for disobedience, as well as for the crime against public authority.

The remaining citizens at the scene fled, no longer allowing any arrests or identifications.

In the same dawn, at 3:45 am, five more men were detained for being suspected of committing crimes of offenses against the qualified physical agent of authority, injuries and disobedience.

After several noise alerts at the unspecified location, the policemen went to a residence where they found a party going on, with about 20 to 30 people.

During the departure from the house in question, the participants “made injuries and threats” to the police, which led to four arrests.

When these were taking place, the remaining citizens advanced towards the police “with a hostile, challenging and aggressive body posture”. In the attempt to immobilize, one of the suspects – the fifth detainee – always tried to evade, using martial arts techniques.

Two policemen had to receive hospital treatment with various injuries.

The six detainees have already been brought before the court, all of whom have been given a term of identity and residence (the least serious coercion measure), according to the police.

This measure is of mandatory application whenever a citizen is constituted accused. In addition to the identification of the accused, he is obliged to appear before the authorities whenever the law requires it or is notified to do so.

Five dead and 497 infected with coronavirus. Number of internees shoots – Society

The number of deaths from coronavirus increased again in Portugal this Saturday: five more people died of the disease. Four of the deaths occurred in the Lisbon and Vale do Tejo Region and one in the North.

According to the DGS bulletin, there are another 497 new ones infected in the last 24 hours, making a total of 63 310 active cases. Of those infected today, 178 are from the North Region, 243 are from the Lisbon and Tagus Valley Region, 39 in the Centro Region, 26 in the Alentejo, 7 in the Algarve, 2 in Madeira and 2 in the Azores.

There are 438 people hospitalized, 34 more than this Friday, and 59 of them are in Intensive Care Units, five more than yesterday.

There are still 250 more people recovered from the disease, making a total of 43,894 recovered since the beginning of the pandemic.


Gatherings of up to ten people and working hours lagged. What are the new contingency measures against covid-19?

At a press conference outside the Council of Ministers, António Costa started by admitting that if “there has been a constant increase in new cases since the end of the containment phase, that is, since the beginning of May”.

The Prime Minister underlines that the Government has always said that “this would be likely to happen” due to the end of the confinement and increased activity.

“Yet, if we focus on the last few weeks, we can see that since the beginning of August there has been a sustained growth in new cases ”, says Costa, stressing that “the numbers of yesterday and today are particularly significant”.

Costa justifies this increase with the vacation period and “natural relaxation of each individual’s behavior”, as well as with the “multiplication of travel and meeting activities”.

Thus, the Government decided in August that, from the 15th, the whole country will enter into a contingency state. “This means that many of the rules that have already been in force in the Metropolitan Area of ​​Lisbon are going to go into effect across the country ”, explains António Costa, who considers this time of arrival of autumn and return to classes and work a “critical” phase.

So the chief executive announced that gatherings are now limited to ten people across the country and commercial establishments – with the exception of pastry shops, cafes, hairdressers and gyms – should only open after 10am, “In order to ensure the differentiation of schedules and circulation”.

The operating limitations of establishments are also extended to the country. The closing time of the establishments is between 20h and 23h, by municipal decision.

Regarding the areas for the restoration of shopping centers, António Costa makes it clear that “there cannot be more than four people per group in order to avoid large concentrations in these eating spaces”.

It was also decreed the prohibition of alcoholic beverages at service stations and, from 8 pm, in all establishments, except drinks to accompany meals in catering establishments.

Still in relation to the consumption of alcoholic beverages, this will be banned on the public road, “because it is absolutely essential to be able to ensure that the situations of informal gathering of consumption and parties do not multiply” that have been denounced.

Regarding the situation in the homes, the Prime Minister stressed that “we must reinforce the medical care that exists in each home”. In order to respond to outbreaks in these establishments, the Government has decreed that “district rapid intervention brigades will be created to contain and stabilize” these outbreaks.

These brigades, explains António Costa, involve “doctors, nurses and diagnostic technicians who can act very quickly in the face of any outbreak that may occur in any home in order to allow the diagnosis as early as possible, to avoid that cases come to be known when there are already dozens of cases ”. The Prime Minister says, therefore, that around 400 people will be involved in the 18 brigades.

Regarding the controversy surrounding the return of the public to football stadiums, the executive does not foresee any change in scope. “The decision we have at the moment is not to allow the public to exist in sports venues in order to avoid risks of contamination”, announced Costa.

The Prime Minister justifies this decision by stating that “we all know that our behavior in cinema is very different in a football stadium and, therefore, this imposes restrictions on the existence of audiences in these spaces”.
Back to school

António Costa reinforces that “this fortnight will be marked, especially, by the reopening of the school year” and, therefore, “we must organize ourselves so that everything can go well so that the school year can run, as much as possible, only with classroom teaching ”.Personal protection equipment will be distributed to all students and contingency plans will be outlined in all schools and a benchmark for action on suspicious, positive or outbreak cases. In addition, the maximum limit of four people per group was defined in the restaurants, cafes and pastry shops 300 meters from the schools.

“It does not mean that we do not have the Study at Home through television as security”, explains the prime minister.

With the return to school scheduled between September 14th and 17th, the Council of Ministers defined a set of measures that oblige the readjustment of the functioning of schools to the new health reality.

António Costa explains that “a great contagion factor does not develop at school, but on the way from home to school and from school to home. So the appeal I make to everyone is that be aware that the risk of contagion outside school is not less than the risk of contagion at school”.
Metropolitan Areas of Lisbon and Porto with tighter measures

Higher population density necessarily increases the risk of transmission. Thus, António Costa underlines that “we cannot ignore that the incidence of this pandemic is concentrated, in particular, in the two Metropolitan Areas of Lisbon and Porto ”.

For this reason, the chief executive announced that, in these areas, “it is necessary to make an increased effort to avoid the concentration of people, both in public transport and in the work areas”.

Among the measures approved by the Council of Ministers for the Lisbon and Porto region is the definition of teams working in a mirror, with “rotation schedules between telework and face-to-face work”.

For those who are in person, the time difference will be mandatory, with different arrival and departure times, as well as breaks and meals.

In this way, it may be possible to “reduce pendulum movements”, in order to avoid the concentration of people during rush hour.

“The rules that existed remain: mandatory mask, the reinforcement of frequencies whenever it is possible that this happens, but above all it is important here to play with the differentiation factor of the schedules “of the companies, said the Prime Minister, stressing that the objective is” to avoid agglomerations in public transport“.
The “red lines”

Asked by journalists about the “red lines” that could lead the Government to decree a new confinement, António Costa replies that the first is related to deaths. “There is no greater good than life. This is essential ”, stresses Costa.

Second, the Prime Minister says that it is important to take into account “our responsiveness in the area of ​​intensive care”. “We never had a limit situation,” says Costa, “but obviously, if we all need intensive care, the National Health Service (SNS) will not be able to respond”. The Prime Minister stressed that it is necessary to take into account that “hospital services and the NHS cannot be dedicated 100% to Covid-19 because there is a wide range of other diseases that have to be answered and where it is being done. recovery effort ”.

“There is a fundamental red line: we cannot reach the situation of closing schools again”, Stresses Costa, as well as“ we cannot close the economy again as we did in March and April ”.
“Controlling the pandemic depends on individual behavior”

In a message that ended his speech, António Costa underlined that the priority now is to control a pandemic and, for that, “there is an awareness that we must have and that we must not ignore: the control of this pandemic depends, first and last, on the individual behavior of each one of us ”.

The Prime Minister stressed that we now have a “robust NHS, but the best way to help healthcare professionals is to avoid being sick”. Costa reiterated the call for compliance with the hygiene rules enacted by the DGS, such as the use of a mask and frequent hand washing.

“If we all comply with these rules, we will surely have a pandemic that will continue until there is a vaccine, which can grow, but it will be growth that remains under control. This is absolutely decisive ”, concluded Costa.
