‘It’s not too late for Mario!’ Balotelli’s agent insists striker is NOT finished

first_img1 Mario Balotelli’s agent insists it is “never too late” for the Liverpool striker as he looks to find a way out of Anfield.Mino Raiola has been tasked with finding a destination for the 25-year-old Italian frontman, who has not travelled with the Reds’ squad to the United States after being told by manager Jurgen Klopp he has no future at the club.The likes of Sampdoria, newly-promoted Serie A side Crotone and former club Inter Milan have all been linked with moves to take the striker back to his homeland.And while Raiola refused to discuss his potential next destination, the agent insisted Balotelli still has what it takes to perform at the top level.“In life it’s never too late,” Raiola told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.“If you think Mario makes me despair, you’re wrong because his life has improved a lot and now he just needs the right opportunity.“Where will he go? I’m saying nothing. Let’s see what happens. I won’t close the door on any solution. That goes for Mario and all my players.“I listen to what is offered to me and then I decide along with them.” Mario Balotelli is set to leave Liverpool after a disappointing two-year spell last_img read more

Parents called on to get their daughters vaccinated against HPV

first_imgNearly two out of every three first year girls in Ireland are receiving the HPV vaccine this year, as stage two begins this month. HSE vaccination teams will be returning to second level schools to administer the second dose of the vaccine which protects against cervical cancer.The national uptake of the vaccine is up 11% to around 62% this year, while parents whose daughters have not had the vaccine but are still in second level schools are also being encouraged to contact their local vaccination teams and join the ‘catch-up’ programme which will be available in schools over the coming weeks. Laura Brennan from Co Clare, who has terminal cervical cancer, as the HSE launches the next phase of the HPV Vaccine Information Campaign. Pic: Marc O’SullivanTwenty five year old Laura Brennan from Co Clare has bravely joined the information campaign to share her experience of cervical cancer – which for Laura is now a life limiting condition.  Laura hopes her story will encourage parents to be informed and get their daughters vaccinated.Laura said: “I made contact with the HSE after I had been diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer. I’m only 25 but there is no treatment that will cure my cancer, only treatment that will now prolong my life.  I didn’t get the HPV vaccine – it wasn’t available in schools when I was a teenager so my parents didn’t have the choice.” The reality is that now there is a vaccine that protects girls from getting this horrible disease.  No parent wants their daughter to get cervical cancer.“If anything good comes from my situation, I hope that parents consider this – get the facts, get informed and make the decision to get their daughters vaccinated.  The HPV vaccine saves lives. It could have saved mine.” Health Minister Simon Harris welcomed the increase in uptake rates achieved since last year. However, he said while the increase in uptake rates are welcome more work needs to be done to ensure that all our young women are vaccinated and protected from cervical cancer.hpv,GP and broadcaster Dr Ciara Kelly states: “I have been very encouraged by the groundswell of support for the vaccine that has been visible in recent months right across the public, medical, media and political spectrum.  It is very clear that this is a vaccine that works and is safe.“We know we can protect our daughters from seven out of ten cervical cancers – it’s a safe vaccine and is provided free of charge.  I had no hesitation in giving this vaccine to my daughter and I have no hesitation in recommending it to my patients. If you have a daughter in first year, I recommend you consent to her getting the vaccine.“If your daughter has missed the vaccine, the good news is it’s not too late to sign her up. Do your research.

Other People’s Priorities

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 Your inbox is the place where other people’s priorities live.If an email is simply something that you’re supposed to read, if it’s “for your information,” then it’s someone’s priority that you read their email so they can be confident you’re aware of something. This OPP is really someone’s CYA.If an email is a request for you to actually do something, that request is being made by someone who believes it is a priority. But whose priority is it? If they didn’t believe it was a priority for you it wouldn’t have ended up in your inbox.A lot of the email you receive is a request for information. You know something someone else needs to know, and they need your help with that information. This doesn’t mean that they don’t have some other way to find the information. But, if they know you have it, they’re happy to unload their priority onto you.Your Priorities FirstInstead of waiting in front of an open inbox all day for other people’s priorities to arrive (being completely reactive) close your email. No seriously; just close it. When you open your inbox, process your email. As you process that email, determine the best and most effective way to respond to other people’s priorities.If someone needs to share information with you, archive it to a “read later” folder. If someone requests that you do some task, add the task to your calendar, defer the task, delegate to someone else, or shoot a quick email back renegotiating the timeframe so that it better meets your schedule. I know this isn’t always possible, but a lot of the time it is.If you have information that someone else needs, determine the urgency with which they need that information. Then decide the best way for you to respond–and the best medium. If you’re in sales and you’re in your car a lot, print the emails and make the calls from the road. There’s no reason to travel to a client site and waste the time in the car when you could be blasting out some of the work you need to complete for others.It’s difficult to achieve all of your own necessary outcomes, but it’s impossible to do so if you’re always vigilantly standing by waiting for other people’s priorities to arrive. It’s important that you don’t neglect other people’s needs. But it isn’t necessary–or effective–to allow their priorities to become yours.QuestionsIs your inbox open right now? Really? You still haven’t closed it? Seriously. It will be okay.How much of your inbox is someone else’s priorities?What percentage of your email is really just someone covering themselves?How can you use time that would otherwise be wasted to respond to other people’s priorities?How do you make time for your priorities?last_img read more
