UEL 1st Leg: Man United Demolish Real Sociedad As Fernandes Scores Twice At Turin Stadium

Published

on

Manchester United put one foot in the Europa League round of 16 with a comprehensive 4-0 away victory over Real Sociedad in their round-of-32 first leg on Thursday.

Due to travel restrictions in Spain, this tie took place in Turin, meaning La Real lost the advantage of playing in their home stadium.

Billed as one of the ties of the round, it lived up to expectations with both attacks looking dangerous in the first half and Marcus Rashford should have opened the scoring early on when put through, but shot straight at goalkeeper Alex Remiro.

United did open the scoring on 27 minutes as Remiro clattered into defender Robin Le Normand, allowing Fernandes to tap into an empty net from close range and net his 20th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

La Real finished the half the stronger but, despite some shaky United defending, the “home” side failed to take advantage.

Former United academy graduate Adnan Januzaj was up against his old side for the first time since his departure for Spain in 2017 and told ESPN on the eve of the match that he had nothing to prove.

However, like former Manchester City captain David Silva, the Belgium international’s impact on the contest was minimal.

Fernandes made it 2-0 on 57 minutes after cleverly stepping over a Rashford through ball, which found Daniel James who slipped in the Portugal midfielder. The goal was initially ruled out for offside, but a VAR review overruled the original decision and referee Sandro Scharer awarded the goal.

United’s third came 64 minutes as Rashford ran on to Fred’s pass to poke the ball past Remiro and put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in firm control of the tie.

James thought he’d added a fourth three minutes later when he coolly finished from Mason Greenwood’s pass, but the England international was flagged offside.

The Wales international did eventually make it 4-0 with a close-range finish in the 89th minute.

United, who won the trophy in 2017, are among the favourites and Fernandes said they plan on going all the way after being knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage.

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

Published

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID in 2022.

One of the most important ways that societies intervene to buffer the adverse consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage is through the provision of social assistance. Social assistance refers to government programs that provide a minimum level of income support to individuals and households living in poverty.

When people talk about people receiving public assistance – food stamps, disability, unemployment payments, and other government help – they often have stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions of who those people are and what their lives are like.

This view of some people is affecting policy for the growing ranks of our nation’s poor, says a new report from a joint project from Save the Children and the Center for American Progress. The report compares the U.S. means of measuring economic opportunity and poverty with the experience of other countries, including five peer nations on the same income scale. It shows that people in many peer countries are given assistance as a matter of public policy, and these nations tend to view welfare programs as a short-term emergency measure.

Many countries like the U.S and spend significantly more taxpayer money on assistance than peer countries. After a few years of assistance, people on welfare in the U.S. have a much more difficult time finding jobs, according to the recent National Survey of Transitional Assistance Providers. These programs lend support either in the form of direct cash transfers or through a variety of in-kind benefits (e.g. food stamps and rent subsidies). Social assistance has been shown to strengthen the purchasing power of the poor and raise their material standards of living.

However, the government does not provide these social assistance programs to ensure marginalized populations are treated fairly, the report says. In fact, U.S. policy determines participation by significant factors, such as the stigma associated with poverty.

Many social programs determine eligibility before a person’s need for support. They include the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides an additional tax refund to working families. Similarly, these benefits are made available only to the poor, as with food stamps and Medicaid eligibility. The report finds positive signs.

Throughout the world, government assistance helps increase your odds of getting a job, incorporates receiving benefits (by lowering the barriers to receive), raises your wages, and reduces the chances of falling into poverty. This means people who receive the assistance are less likely to experience long-term poverty.

Some nations take a deliberate approach to the provision of social assistance because they view the social support system as integral to promoting social and economic mobility. In many cases, straight into the workforce programs and an expansion.

Access to jobs is crucial to moving families out of poverty. Unemployment and disability, for example, only benefit people when they work. A policy reform could make the social safety net more effective.

The warning comes after recent explosions at bars in the north-eastern states of Taraba and Yobe that killed several people.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.
