0Shares0000A Swiss court which cleared Paolo Guerrero to play for Peru at the World Cup, despite a doping ban, says he can also play for his club, for now © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISGENEVA, Switzerland, Jul 17 – Peruvian football star Paolo Guerrero can play for his Brazilian club Flamengo when it resumes competition this week, despite his suspension for cocaine use, Switzerland’s top court said Tuesday.In late May, the Swiss Federal Tribunal put a provisional stay on a suspension given to Guerrero by the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport, allowing him to play for Peru at the World Cup. It had not been immediately clear if that stay applied only to the World Cup, raising concern among Flamengo fans that the club might have to get by without their star.But a spokesman for the Swiss tribunal told AFP that the May decision “is in force until the court approves other measures or reaches a final decision.”Guerrero, 34, tested positive for traces of cocaine after a World Cup qualifier between Peru and Argentina on October 5.He was initially banned for a year, this was later reduced to six months on appeal last December.That ban ended on May 3, making Guerrero eligible to play at the June 14-July 15 World Cup in Russia.But instead of accepting the ruling, Guerrero appealed to CAS in a bid to clear his name. Sport’s top arbitration court responded by increasing the reduced six-month ban to 14 months.CAS secretary general Matthieu Reeb told AFP on Tuesday that the Swiss tribunal may decide to reimpose the suspension after it receives the full argument in support of the decision reached by CAS judges, which is likely to happen by the end of the month.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

The European champions would seek nearer to £40m for him from Chelsea.

Deputy Pearse Doherty has branded the suspension of addiction counselling services for under 18s in Donegal as ‘deplorable.’The Sinn Fein politician is now demanding serious answers from both the Minister and the HSE as to why the service has been allowed to be discontinued.Deputy Doherty’s remarks come following the revelation this week that GPs in Donegal have received letters from the HSE informing them that referrals to the children’s and adolescence’s addiction counselling service have been suspended with immediate effect following the vacating of the Counselling post last week. Reacting to the news, Deputy Doherty said the revelation is simply deplorable.“Effectively, what the HSE has stated in its letter to GPs is that due to the departure last week of the Counsellor charged with the delivery of addiction based counselling in the county, that the service has been suspended with immediate effect which means that no more referrals to the service can go ahead and therefore minors living locally have no access to addiction support services.“To make matters worse, I understand that the HSE had been aware for a number of months now that this vacancy would occur, and yet now that the post is vacant it has not been filled nor has permission to recruit for the vacancy even been formally sanctioned by the HSE at national level, meaning that it is highly unlikely that a successful replacement will be appointed anytime soon.“In essence, we now have a situation whereby anyone under the age of 18 in Donegal who requires counselling support for drug or alcohol addiction or has a history of substance abuse, is no longer able to access what are essential and often lifesaving services – this is nothing short of a scandal. “The HSE, despite knowing for months that a replacement Counsellor would be required in order for patient referrals to be allowed to continue, has failed disgracefully in its duty to ensure that equity of access for young people to addiction services would be maintained as a priority.“Instead, authorities have facilitated what is shocking discrimination with regards to patients’ access to care based on geographical location, resulting in services being available to people in other counties but not to those who need them here in the Northwest.“This is simply not good enough and serious questions now need to be answered by both the HSE and the Minister for Health as to how this appalling situation was allowed to happen in the first instance, and also for them to state what action will now be taken to resume the service.“I have already this week tabled a Dáil Question to the Minister for Health in which I’ve asked him to provide details of all vacancies which remain unfilled within the CHO1 area of which Donegal is part, and also for details of the date on which authorities became aware of the need to recruit personnel in order to fill these posts once they became vacant.“In Donegal, like in other rural counties, we have a serious problem in terms of the number of our young people dying each year as a result of suicide, and for services to be stripped away like this is just inconceivable. “What is needed if we are ever to begin to tackle this scourge is a concerted effort from the state to provide all the necessary supports and services which may be availed of by anyone requiring help or who simply need to feel that their problems matter and that they are being listened to, and this is exactly what I will be saying to both the Minister and the HSE when I raise this issue in the coming days.”NO ADDICTION SERVICES IN DONEGAL FOR UNDER 18s – CLAIM was last modified: June 15th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:addiction servicesDeputy Pearse DohertydonegalHSE

Influence. If you want to be your dream client’s trusted advisor, you want to influence them. You want people to believe that you are someone worth following, someone worth trusting, someone worth doing business with because of who you are.Think about the people who have been influential in your life. These people were honest and they acted with integrity (they walked their talk). They had character. And they truly cared about you as a person. This is why you count them among the few that influenced you.Persuasion. Persuasion is something a little less than influence. It means that you have to argue your case, advise, or urge someone to take action. To be sure, someone with influence may have to use persuasion.Think about the last time someone persuaded you to something. It’s likely that they were someone with influence. But maybe not someone with so much influence that you would unquestioningly follow their lead.Coercion. Coercion is the use of force or intimidation to get someone to comply with your wishes. It includes the idea of manipulating someone. It indicates an imbalance in power. All force isn’t necessarily physical; force is more often psychological.If you were ever coerced, you didn’t like it. You are never happy being coerced to something. Hopefully, you don’t have a recent memory of being coerced to do something.When you look at the old school tactics that salespeople used, they are closer to coercion than they are to influence. They are no longer effective or useful to professional salespeople. Tactical stuff like “tie downs” might still work, but the price of destroying relationships to win a transaction isn’t a good strategy for anyone who plays a long game; making people feel bad about their decision and bad about you isn’t ever a good idea.Be a Person of InfluenceYou want to be a person of influence. You want to be someone of character. The more influence you have, the less you have to persuade.If you are in sales, you are going to have to persuade your dream clients to take action. You are going to have to persuade them to see things through a new perceptual lens, to change their beliefs about what it possible, and to agree to change. You won’t always have enough influence to help people without having to persuade them.If you are going to be a trusted advisor (or what I call a Level 4 Value Creator), you can never use coercion. You can never be manipulative. Force is the strategy chosen by people who don’t want to do the work of becoming a person of influence or learning to use persuasion.What are you doing to become a person of influence?
