United are seemingly on an upward trajectory, but much depends on whether they can secure a top four spot this season, or capitalise on City’s expulsion in their place. Speaking ahead of Leipzig’s Champions League second leg with Tottenham , Werner added: “So at this point of my career I’m asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Timo Werner has admitted he is unsure whether he wants to join Liverpool or Man City over concerns whether he would be a first-team regular. The German striker has been linked with a move to both clubs this summer, with Man Utd are also interested in activating his £51million release clause. Timo Werner has revealed he could snub a transfer to stay at Leipzig Werner mentioned United when providing a latest update on his future, but also conceded the Red Devils were not the team they once were. And it seems the 24-year-old is now even considering the prospect of staying at Red Bull Leipzig. “At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations,” Werner said. “The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City . “They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches. “But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at. “The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. Loading… “For me Manchester United is one of these teams.” Werner’s comments may come as a surprise to the interested parties, but perhaps he has a point. At present there is little chance of him dislodging either Roberto Firmino or Sergio Aguero from the front lines at Liverpool or City.

Local Colleges Receive Hundreds of Millions in COVID-19 Relief Aid

first_imgLocal college students who have been struggling to pay their bills and keep up their studies during the pandemic are getting some help from the federal government.The coronavirus relief act, or CARES Act, passed by Congress is providing hundreds of millions of dollars to local institutions, including public and private universities, community colleges and for-profit institutions.Among the local schools receiving money: Miami Dade College ($49 million), Florida International University ($38 million), Broward College ($27 million), Florida Atlantic University ($22 million), Keiser University ($21.2 million), Palm Beach State College ($18.9 million), University of Miami ($8 million) and Nova Southeastern University ($7.2 million).At least half of each school’s money is required to go toward emergency cash grants for students.The law requires recipients to already be receiving some form of federal aid, such as a Pell Grant, which goes to low-income students, or federally backed student loans, which have no income restrictions.Officials from several institutions say they are still working on exact eligibility requirements for the new money.Starting today, PBSC will begin accepting applications and distributing more than $9.4 million in emergency cash grants directly to students whose lives and education have been impacted by the #coronavirus #pandemic.

We have almost 20,000 students,” adds the chancellor.While several other South Florida’s universities, including FAU and NSU, are still developing their plans for distributing money, FIU began accepting applications April 24. The university has received more than 3,200 applications and funded $2.5 million in requests, according to FIU spokeswoman Maydel Santana.Additionally, about half of the federal money can be used to offset expenses or losses for the institutions. FIU has calculated its losses at $6.2 million for spring, including refunds for housing and meals, protective equipment, cleaning and sanitizing, and new software. The expenses and losses are expected to be about $11 million for the summer term. “The longer this goes on, of course, the larger the shortfall,” Santana explains.Keiser said there could be new expenses if students return in the fall, as schools determine how to keep students and faculty safe. That could involve having fewer students in each classroom where everyone must wear masks and gloves. Each residential student could also be placed in a private dorm room, rather than sharing with a roommate.“Our plan is to be back to school in the fall, following whatever rules we’re given,” Arthur Keiser notes.last_img read more
