Arribas, made in Alcorcón

first_imgArribas debuted with the first team on March 4, 2017. He then played three minutes 0-0 against Sevilla Atl. In that campaign with the subsidiary he played 8 games and scored 1 goal. The following year with B he added 24 games and three goals and in his third season with the second team (2018/2019) he played 36 games and scored two goals. In 2018/2019 he reappeared with the first team. He played 14 minutes on June 8, 2-1 against Granada. This season has undoubtedly been the one of its explosion.Another youth squadArribas has been the most powerful irruption in recent times for the pottery quarry.Last season Relu was the most notable youth squad. The midfielder, now in the Borusia branch, played 4 games.Previously, several plants should be highlighted. Chema Rodríguez arrived from Atlético Madrid B in 2013/14. With the yellow branch he only played two games. That year he already played 12 games with Alcorcón. The following two years he would get to play 56 games scoring five goals in the last campaign as a potter that was 2015/2016. Now he is in Getafe. Fernando was another youth player who joined the first team. The center joined the subsidiary in 2014/15, that year he played 21 games with the B and 8 with the first team. The following season he played 20 matches with the first team. Currently Fernando is active in Córdoba.In the 2013/14 season two youth squads managed to reach the first team. Dani Ponce, now in Alcalá after going through teams like Fuenlabrada, played six matches with the first team. Tamayo, currently in the ranks of Rayo Majadahonda, has had four participations with the first team of AD Alcorcón. Just days before La Liga began, in the middle of August and with the whole country on vacation, a 21-year-old had his first contract in professional football. It was Óscar Arribas fulfilling a dream and it seemed that he was breaking down the door. Fran Fernández was categorical “he has earned it”, many expected him to have a very minor role, however, he has become the undisputed starter. At only 21 years old, he has played 22 league games and has scored four goals. An offensive midfielder who can play winger or attacking midfielder. Worker, with self-confidence, speed, nose of goal and good one on one. Arribas has carved out a niche for himself in the Second Division and has shown that the AD Alcorcón youth academy has quality and gives good players for professional football. An example for his teammates of the subsidiary with whom he has also played 4 games this year.last_img read more

Papal Address Contains Much on Poverty and Income Inequality

first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 Shares neneo / Shutterstock.comJanuary 1, 2014; PBS NewsHourThe Pope’s New Year’s address had as its theme “fraternity,” but his interpretation of that focused on inequality and human rights violations as violence. I will leave it to much more learned people to interpret the speech, but here are some excerpts.“In many parts of the world, there seems to be no end to grave offenses against fundamental human rights, especially the right to life and the right to religious freedom. The tragic phenomenon of human trafficking, in which the unscrupulous prey on the lives and the desperation of others, is but one unsettling example of this. Alongside overt armed conflicts are the less visible but no less cruel wars fought in the economic and financial sectors with means, which are equally destructive of lives, families and businesses.Globalization, as Benedict XVI pointed out, makes us neighbors, but does not make us brothers. The many situations of inequality, poverty and injustice, are signs not only of a profound lack of fraternity, but also of the absence of a culture of solidarity. New ideologies, characterized by rampant individualism, egocentrism and materialistic consumerism, weaken social bonds, fuelling that ‘throwaway’ mentality which leads to contempt for, and the abandonment of, the weakest and those considered ‘useless.’ In this way human coexistence increasingly tends to resemble a mere do ut des, which is both pragmatic and selfish.”And on income inequality:“One also sees the need for policies which can lighten an excessive imbalance between incomes. We must not forget the Church’s teaching on the so-called social mortgage, which holds that although it is lawful, as Saint Thomas Aquinas says, and indeed necessary ‘that people have ownership of goods,’ insofar as their use is concerned, ‘they possess them as not just their own, but common to others as well, in the sense that they can benefit others as well as themselves.’”The Pope also decried our tolerance of such stuff as war and human trafficking.—Ruth McCambridgeShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more
