There are also members of this template in the Iberdrola Challenge (Second): Míriam Diéguez de Oña (Alavés) and Pilar Garrote Camuñez (Seagull), or even retired players like Esther Romero Ruiz.Alexia Putellas, Mariona and Jenni Hermoso were already in the attackDespite the fact that his weight in the Barça goal did not reach as much quota as now, Alexia Putellas, Jenni Hermoso and Mariona Caldentey they were part of the culé attack of the last league title of Barça. The three players, who this year have a total of 39 goals among the three, dominated by Jenni, scorer with 23 goals. From Madrid to Madrid.

Also formed that attack Andrea Falcón, who was already taking his first steps as a star, and who this year has not been able to demonstrate his quality at Barça due to a serious injury. Barça is the clear favorite to win the First Iberdrola title this season. With the competition suspended on the occasion of the coronavirus, the Barça team is the solo leader at no more and no less than nine points away from Atlético, second classified and current champion of the last three Leagues. After an outstanding season, with only two draws in 21 games, Lluís Cortés’s men are trying to regain the league throne, the one they have not held since 2015. Then, in the 2014-15 season, they culminated a streak of four consecutive Primera titles after a season in which they only yielded a draw and three defeats, with a balance of 88 goals in favor and 9 against.On the occasion of this forced stoppage in the First Iberdrola, we take the opportunity to remember the last Barça who lifted a League, the one who made history by overcoming historical figures such as Athletic and Rayo Vallecano in the women’s domestic competition. The Basques won three titles between 2003 and 2005, while those from Madrid had been the most regular during 2009 and 2011. In this group of illustrious Spanish women’s football, Atlético sneaked in these years, with the last three Leagues won.Players during a League Classic in 2015.

After going down to Segunda, Chelsea changed the city of Malaga for another of the Andalusian coast: Huelva, where he is now the starting goal for Sporting de Huelva. While, Ráfols continued at Barça after that season in which they won the fourth league title and remained in the culé locker room until 2018, year in which he retired from professional football.center_img A defensive line with Unzué or Ruth GarcíaIn the defense of that Barça from 2014-15 we find several players from the current Barça squad: Marta Torrejón or Melanie Serrano.

The invisible problem in gun violence research

first_imgQ: What are some challenges in the field of gun research right now?  A: In 2013, there were over 137,867 calls to the Philadelphia [Pennsylvania,] police department for domestic violence assistance, which is a remarkable number in a population of 1.5 million. Of that, 35,413 incidents were between intimate partners, but only 576 involved a gun. We found that most of the incidents were verbal-only in nature. When there was a weapon used, it was most often a bodily weapon—hands, fists, or feet. When an external weapon was used, a third of the time it was a gun, and the remainder it was essentially whatever was within reach—a knife, a bat, ashtrays, you name it. The offenders were less likely to punch or kick the victim when a gun was involved. In other words, the victim was less likely to be injured when a gun was involved.  Check out our full coverage of AAAS 2017. Q: What is the relationship between guns and intimate partner violence? BOSTON—What happens when guns are present at the scene of domestic disputes—but not fired? It’s a slice of gun research that’s “largely invisible,” says Susan Sorenson, a public health professor at University of Pennsylvania who specializes in gun violence. In a session here Friday at the annual meeting of AAAS, which publishes Science, she argued that—because medicine, public health, and law enforcement usually focus on physical injury—researchers are missing the psychological impacts of so-called nonfatal gun use. Sorenson sat down with Science to discuss her latest study and broader challenges to the field of gun research.

Coercive control is at the heart of battering. If coercive control is present in a violent relationship, [methods of coercion] like psychological manipulation, limiting access to others, limiting movement, denigration, insults, and belittling all cause the woman’s worldview to shift to some degree. So if [the offender] were to hit her after all of this psychological, emotional, economic, and other kinds of abuse, she becomes more compliant—and less likely to leave.  A: One is funding, and there other is political will. The extremely limited federal funding in the past 2 decades has hampered researchers’ ability to address important policy questions. It creates a circumstance that deters the next generation of researchers from entering the field.  Q: What are the psychological impacts of these types of incidents?A: About 69% of the time, guns were used as a method for intimidation. We found that fear is substantially higher when a gun is used to threaten a victim. When establishing credibility in a police report, fear is important to record in the absence of physical injury. Medicine, public health, and law enforcement usually focus on physical injury, so data on guns as threats have been largely invisible in those fields.  Connor Augustine Women are less likely to be injured when a gun is involved in intimate partner violence.last_img read more
