Aaron Ñiguez, very close to committing to the CD Lugo

first_imgThe band player who was looking for the CD Lugo would already be a reality. As Álvaro Lorenzo reported in Sports COPE Lugo, the chosen one would be the ilicitano end Aarón Ñiguez, actually no equipment after finishing abruptly his adventure in the Johor Darul Takzim of the Malaysian Super League. The former teams like Almeria, Elche, Tenerife or Real Oviedo would be a few days on trial training with the team before joining as a full member to the discipline of Curro Torres. Aaron’s arrival in Lugo would come after a bad player experience in Malaysia, where he arrived after leaving Real Oviedo. In the Johor Darul it started being indisputable but after a short period of time He was relegated by his coach to train with the subsidiary of the Malaysian team. Due to the lack of minutes and the null treatment, Ñiguez decided to terminate the contract forgiving even the second year of the card that he had to fulfill.With the arrival of Aaron Ñiguez the Lugo would complete his payroll of band players and, after the arrival of Kravets, he would focus on signing a midfielder to complete the template. It is not ruled out that this arrival could produce some exit since with Ñiguez the Lucense wings would be overpopulated with Iriome, Gerard Valentín, Rahmani, and Tete Morente. The latter could be one of the outputs in this winter market as it accumulates two games outside the calls of Curro Torres.last_img read more

ASA CEO Censky Welcomes Appointment of Veneman as Agriculture Secretary

first_imgFollowing President-elect George W. Bush’s announcement today, Stephen L. Censky, the Chief Executive Officer of the American Soybean Association (ASA), a trade group representing thousands of farmers, said, “I think Ann Veneman is a great choice for Secretary of Agriculture. Clearly, Ann knows agriculture very well. She has spent her whole career in agriculture working for farmers and ranchers both at the Department of Agriculture, as well as Commissioner of Agriculture in California.”Censky, who worked with Veneman at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) before he joined ASA, said he worked with her when she was Deputy Undersecretary of what is now Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services, and when she was Deputy Secretary of the entire Agriculture Department.”Ann brings vision and strength in many areas, including international trade,” Censky said. “She really knows the importance of trade, and I think she will exercise real leadership in helping U.S. agriculture open up more markets, including the development of science-based rules governing international trade.”Ann knows that a key to agricultural and farmer prosperity is expanding demand overseas, knocking down trade barriers, and preventing trade barriers from disrupting our exports. So Ann is going to be extremely effective, and I think the soybean industry is going to be extremely well served.”With 96 percent of the world’s population living outside the United States, international trade is particularly important to soybean producers because nearly half the value of the U.S. soybean crop is exported as whole soybeans, or as soybean meal and soybean oil. The value of 1999 U.S. soybean exports was nearly $7.4 billion.”Another area where I think the American Soybean Association will be well served with Ann Veneman as Secretary of Agriculture is in the area of the environment,” Censky said. “Ann clearly is a strong proponent of the environment and environmental conservation, and recognizes the strong environmental ethic farmers hold. Ann brings a strong practical and realistic approach to environmental stewardship that will help farmers better protect the environment while still allowing farmers to farm profitably.”Ann brings a wealth of experience in dealing with science and nutrition issues, and marketing opportunities,” Censky said. She’s a great choice for Secretary of Agriculture because she will serve all of agriculture, including the soybean industry, extremely well.”last_img read more
