…despite Chief Justice’s ruling that Cabinet is “resigned”Despite acting Chief Justice Roxanne George ruling that Cabinet is resigned after the passage of a no-confidence resolution, Government continues its “business as usual” policy with a Cabinet in all but name.This is because a plenary consisting of all Ministers of Government has been continuing the work of the Cabinet by appointing the Boards of various State entities. As recent as Saturday, a total of six Boards were gazetted. All were approved by the ministerial plenary.In the case of the Adoption Board, under the Social Protection Ministry, this Board was approved for the period of February 1 to December 31, 2019. Chairing the board is former A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) Parliamentarian James Bond.The Constitution stipulates that Cabinet must resign after a no-confidence motion is passedSitting on the Board as members are Geoffrey Sankies, Kashir Khan, Clonel Boston, Punilall Latchman and Patricia Grey. There is also supposed to be a representative from the Parliamentary Opposition.Also appointed were members of the National Advisory Council on Occupational Health and Safety with Earl Morris and Patricia Woolford as Chairman and Vice Chairperson and 14 other members. Representatives from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority and the University of Guyana also have to be appointed.The Boards for the Guyana Women Leadership Institute, the Guyana Prison Service Agriculture Development Board, the Fire Advisory Board and the National Commission for the Elderly were also approved.Affixing their signatures to each one of these gazetted notices are Edward Persico as “Secretary to the Cabinet” and Minister of State Joseph Harmon.ResignedAccording to Article 106 (6) of the Guyana Constitution, “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.106 (7) goes on to state that, “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.Immediately after the passage of the motion, the coalition Government had said it would uphold the Constitution, but subsequently took a U-turn, maintaining that everything is business as usual.President David Granger has maintained on several occasions that there is no provision in the Constitution for a “caretaker” Government. Furthermore, the Government went on to challenge the passage of the motion, first in the National Assembly and then in the High Court.However, the acting Chief Justice found that the no-confidence motion was validly passed and that Cabinet should have resigned. Government has since appealed this decision, and those matters are expected to be decided on at the Appeal Court soon.But following the High Court ruling, the coalition has been using a ‘ministerial plenary’, which is imbued with Cabinet powers, to carry on Government business.In fact, they have noted contracts from the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) and given their approval for various appointments.This is a move which Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has called illegal. “They have a ministerial plenary to bypass the Chief Justice’s ruling, which is illegal,” the Opposition Leader has said.Jagdeo had noted, too, that if the People’s Progressive Party, of which he is also the General Secretary, returns to office, then all the actions and decisions of the coalition Government since December 21 will be reviewed and reversed.
Blessed with a coastline almost 3 000 kilometres long, and numerous dams, lakes, rivers and streams, South Africa has plenty to offer the fishing enthusiast. From game fish in two oceans to trout in mountain streams, there is something to challenge and entertain everyone.Many of South Africa’s prime fishing spots offer not only good fishing, but also include some of the most beautiful places in a country blessed by Mother Nature.Blessed with a coastline almost 3 000 kilometres long, and numerous dams, lakes, rivers and streams, South Africa has plenty to offer the fishing enthusiast. From game fish in two oceans to trout in mountain streams, there is something to challenge and entertain everyone.Many of South Africa’s prime fishing spots offer not only good fishing, but also include some of the most beautiful places in a country blessed by Mother Nature.Deep sea chartersDeep sea charters are available from ports along the coastline, which is shared by both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, as well as the cold Benguela and warm Agulhas currents, bringing with them a wide variety of species.Almost 15 percent of all known coastal marine species are found on the South African coast.Big fish that one will encounter at sea include barracuda, sailfish and tuna. Take note that permits are required for ocean fishing.Mountains and damsThe gentle art of fly fishing is popular in South Africa, with three areas especially recognised for their bountiful offerings: the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, Mpumulanga province, and the Eastern Cape. All three regions boast sizeable mountain ranges; it is in their mountain streams that trout flourish.Some of these areas can be accessed only with 4×4 vehicles. The up-side of this is that they retain their natural beauty, being somewhat isolated.For those that find fishing in rivers or off river banks too difficult, there are plenty of well-stocked dams to offer an enjoyable challenge.Both brown and rainbow trout are to be found, though seldom together.The South African trout season starts in September and finishes at the end of May. The best times for fly-fishing are in September and October, and then in April and May. However, many of the country’s dams and lakes have no closed season.Bass and carpFor some, bass fishing is the way to go. The bass is an intelligent and thus challenging fish, while being hardy too. This makes it a very adaptable fish, to be found far and wide, and partial to a wide variety of bait.Carp fishing also has its supporters. Like bass, carp were originally imported into South Africa, and offer an excellent challenge. They also grow to some pretty amazing sizes.Catch and release is encouraged for both bass and carp fishing.Blessed with a coastline almost 3 000 kilometres long, and numerous dams, lakes, rivers and streams, South Africa has plenty to offer the fishing enthusiast.SOUTH AFRICAN FISHING QUICK LINKSGENERALAlgoa Bay Tuna Classic (Port Elizabeth)Bass Equalizer Tournament Trail (BETT)Extreme AnglerFishing CollegeFishing DirectoryFishing the Eastern CapeFishinginfo.co.zaGo FishingOverberg AnglingSA Deep Sea Angling AssociationSealine South African Angling and Boating CommunitySki Boat MagazineThe South African Fishing GuideThe KingfisherDEEP SEA CHARTERSEastern Cape3 Way Ocean Charters (Port Elizabeth)IBY Charters (Port Elizabeth)Pirates Lodge (Port Elizabeth)KwaZulu-NatalBlue Water Charters (Durban)Casea Charters (Umhlanga)Deep Blue Hunter (Shelly Beach)Durban Fishing (Durban)Hakuna Matata Charters (Durban)Lynski Charters (Durban)McFire Deepseacharters (Richards Bay)Mighty Charters (Shelly Beach/Margate)Must Byt Fishing Charters (Margate, Shelly Beach, Ramsgate)Nikao Fishing Adventures (Durban)Sea Hunter (Scottburgh)Sodwana Charters (Sodwana)St Lucia & Cape Vidal Charter Fishing (Cape Vidal, St Lucia)Swissroll Charters (Durban)Wild Waters Game Fishing Charters (Durban)Zululand Fishing Charters (Richards Bay)Western CapeAwesome Charters (Struisbaai)Big Blue Fishing Charters (Cape Town)Big Fisher Fishing Charters (Cape Town)Cape Fishing (Cape Town)Cape Sea Safaris (Cape Town)Classic Cape Charters (Cape Town)‘Cuda 2’ Deep Sea Charters (Hermanus)Deep South Fishing Charters (Cape Town)Falcon Safaris (Langebaan/Gansbaai)Hooked on Africa (Cape Town)Knysna Fishing and Recreational Charters (Knysna)Mossel Bay Fishing Charters (Mossel Bay)Offshore Sport Fishing Charters (Cape Town)Sharwa Deep Blue Fishing Charters (Gansbaai)South Sea Safaris (Cape Town)Two Oceans Sports Fishing Charters (Hout Bay)FISHING TOUR OPERATORSAfrican Allure (Pretoria)Fishing Trips AfricaGarden Route FishingMubuyu Safaris (Johannesburg)SportFishAfrica (Johannesburg)Tourette Fishing (Pietermaritzburg)Wild Break Tours (Cape Vidal)FLYFISHINGGeneralFederation of South African FlyfishersFly fishing for Sharks in South AfricaFly Fishing MagazineFly Fishing WorldFly TalkIntrepid FlyThe Southern African Trout and Flyfishing DirectoryThe Wild Trout AssociationEastern CapeAfrican Trout (Eastern Cape)Fred Steynberg Professional fly fishing guide (Rhodes)Maclear Fly Fishing (Maclear)Rhodes Village (Eastern Cape)Free StateDreamcast (Eastern Free State)Gauteng ProvinceBig 5 Flyfishing (Johannesburg)Fly Castaway (Johannesburg)Flyguiding Adventures (Vaal River)On the Rocks Flyfishing in Pretoria (Pretoria)The Fish Whisperer (Vaal River/Sterkfontein Dam)KwaZulu-NatalDrakensberg Kloof Game and Trout (Drakensberg)Dreamcast (KZN Midlands)Flyfishing in the DrakensbergFourdon Spa Hotel (KZN Midlands)Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve (Drakensberg)Lake Naverone (Drakensberg)Sani Valley Lodge (Drakensberg)The Flyfishing and Birding Shop (Nottingham Road)The Safari Company Flyfishing Safaris (Durban)Trout and Bass Fishing in the Drakensberg (Mooi River)Umkomaas Guest House (Umkomaas)Wildfly (Nottingham Road)Mpumalanga provinceBergwaters Eco Lodge and Spa (Waterval Boven)Boven Trout Lodge (Waterval Boven)Davies Trout Cottage (Machadodorp)Dullstroom (Dullstroom)Calverton Lodge (Lydenberg)Holingsberg Flyfishing and Country Chalets (Dullstroom)Inyamazane and Forelwater (Machadodorp)Katrinasrust Trout Farm (Dullstroom)Linger Longer (Dullstroom)Machado Stud Trout Farm (Machadodorp)Millstream Farms (Dullstroom)O’Grady’s (Dullstroom)Skurweberg Trout Hideaway (Machadadorp)Uitkomst Trout Self Catering Cottages (Machadodorp)Stonecutters Lodge (Dullstroom)The Mavungana Flyfishing Centre (Dullstroom)Treeferns Trout Lodge (Dullstroom)Trout Hideaway (Drakensberg, Mpumalanga)Troutways Private Retreat (Waterval Boven)Tudor Estates (Machadodorp)Waterfall Mountain Trout Farm & Lodge (between Carolina and Badplaas)Wathaba Hiking and Fishing (Machadodorp)ZiZi Estates (Dullstroom)Zuikerboschhoek Lodge (Dullstroom)North West provinceWind Knot Fly-fishing and Conservation Club (Potchefstroom)Western CapeAlluvia Estate Fly Fishing Stellenbosch (Stellenbosch)Jonkershoek Fishing (Stellenbosch)BASS FISHINGBass FishingBass Fishing South AfricaBass Fishing South Africa Cape TownCenturion Bass Masters Fishing Club (Centurion)Big BassSpinner BaitsThe Bass ChallengeKAYAK FISHINGFishing Kayak (Johannesburg)Fishing Ski Adventures (Durban)Kayak Fishing South Africa (Umkomaas)Kayak Fishing SA (Umkomaas)South African Kayak Fishing AssociationSPEARFISHINGSA SpearfishingSpearfishingsa.co.zaWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Word clouds: No doubt you’ve seen these graphic representations of the most commonly used words in a body of text, floating around the internet. They are especially popular after big political speeches. Thanks to IBM researcher Jonathan Feinberg’s web site Wordle.net, word clouds are easy for anyone to create. To draw a loose analogy: Wordle has been to text analysis what Blogger or Facebook has been to online publishing – great tools to democratize what used to be an elite skill. Are there substantial limitations to this word cloud format that need to be taken into consideration, though?New York University PhD student of political science Drew Conway thinks there are. Conway hosted an interesting debate on his blog this week about one of the key concerns about word clouds and he offered an alternate model for understanding bodies of text. He calls word clouds “spatial visualization wherein space is meaningless.” That’s hard to argue with. Check out one of the models he proposes as a possible next step of the word cloud’s evolution. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Above, Conway’s visualization of words used by both President Obama and Sarah Palin in their speeches about the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords in Tucson. On the left, words used by both but more by Palin, on the right, words used by both but more by Obama. Click to view full size.The big picture here is that space, both the x and the y axes, are opportunities to convey something important.Conway explains what he did:To understand how these speeches compared I first needed to create a term-frequency matrix, which contained only words used in both speeches. After removing common English stop words and the word ‘applause’ (Obama’s speech was in front of a live audience), and retaining only words contained in both speeches at least once, I was left with 103 words to visualize.To show how the two speeches contrasted, I decided to use the x-axis position to pull words used more by one politician closer to either the left or right of the plot. Words used more by Palin are to the left, and likewise words to the right were used more by Obama. The color reinforces this information, making words Palin words darker red, and Obama darker blue…While this is a very simple extension of the traditional word cloud, much more can be learned from it. For example, both politicians used the words “congresswomen,” and “america” equally but also frequently. While the word “tragedy” is used often in both speeches, but slightly more by Obama. The edges are most interesting. Palin repeated the shared terms “ideas,” “debate,” “victims,” “values,” and “strength,” while Obama focused on “people,” “lives,” and “life.”Conway acknowledges that this visualization has its own limitations, specifically that the words not intersecting between both speeches aren’t represented here. He posts the Wordle charts for both speeches as well in his blog post.

Related Posts Thanks to a neat element that came packaged with the design revamp effort rolled out at Google I/O, clicking one of up three displayed hashtags flips the card around within the same page and displays other stories from across the network. Cycling through brings you to other similarly hashtagged posts and finally gives you the option to jump into a fully organized trending page for whatever topic you’ve selected. That’s not all. Google+ posts, unlike Facebook and Twitter, are all editable. That means you can add hashtags later or replace the current batch with new ones. That’s especially useful considering Google automatically tags some posts, which is a great feature that occasionally doesn’t employ the most specific tag possible. But with edit, you can replace the autotags with your own. Animated GIFs That Blend Into The BackgroundWhile anything that aids in the display of animated GIFs is not typically a popular notion, Google+ turns out to be one of the few social havens for the Internet motion mainstay that doesn’t push it in front of your face. The feature was rolled out in March, but ever since the debut of Google’s new photo management and GIF creator tool, called Auto Awesome, that automatically creates the nifty picture loops out of similar photos you batch upload, the social network has become awash in moving pictures. The feature works not only for posts, but profile pictures and even the enormous 2120×1192 pixel cover photo as well (tread carefully there).What makes them so innocuous, compared with the incessantly in-your-face profile GIF that Twitter was forced to put a stop to, is a combination of Google+’s column layout and the fact that user’s profiles won’t animate the GIFs unless you click on their name. Your feed remains mostly undisrupted and when people do happen to post them and they play automatically, it’s easy to let your eyes wander horizontally or vertically to other posts. Check out an example of a cover photo GIF here, and be sure to remember that less is always more in this case. After all, some of the coolest GIFs are the ones that hardly move at all. A Reddit-Like Community Hub, Only With Better Design And Less MemesReddit can be a meme-saturated and inside-joke-filled rabbit hole, and Facebook has long outgrown the ability to keep intelligent discussion at the forefront of its public pages and groups. That doesn’t leave too many options for those nostalgic about the era of dedicated message boards and forum communities. Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Luckily, Google+ has such a feature, called Communities, that acts as a mix between those discussion modes of the earlier Web and Facebook Groups/Pages, but with subreddit-style organization that’s a little more professional than the social news site.For instance, the top Android community was started and remains moderated by the popular blog Android Central. It’s a public community with over 165,000 members and no posted rules, so anyone can join and jump into a number of discussion topics or simply post to the main page. But Google+ also has invite-only groups with stricter organization, such as the HTML5 community. Besides being exclusive, the community has its own self-described manifesto naturally available as a public Google Doc that mandates how to stay in good graces with the moderators. A more lenient page that still has some casual rules is Gaming, which asks that users write in English and avoid littering the page with links in succession. Simply put, there’s a topic for most Web junkies in Google+ Communities, though it does seem to lean towards the more Google-related areas like Android and Chrome in terms of frequency and prominence. Smaller Can In Fact Be BetterA lot of the criticism aimed at Google+ isn’t at what it can’t do or doesn’t do well. Rather, the most-often heard complaint tends to be, “Nobody’s on it!” While it may be true that the social network’s numbers may be far lower than Facebook’s and not likely to catch up anytime soon, it’s important to realize that this has positive effects as well: the people who do use Google+ are only the ones that really want to. It means the users are highly engaged, using the network to its fullest potential and interacting at a high frequency in quality ways that foster more depth. That’s what users can expect when they go there, and Google+’s more powerful features—discovery hashtags that funnel into well-kept communities and pages accented by unique animations—can make the growing social network still feel like a welcoming niche environment. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Google#social networking nick statt Since its makeover in May, Google+ has been steadily winning a war of aesthetics over Facebook, which has yet to roll out its redesigned News Feed to all users.While a visual overhaul is a great way to draw in users who have long neglected the mandatory social component of the Gmail address, Google+ has yet to succeed at making some of its new, highly powerful features more noticeable.To the average user who may only casually use Google+, it’s a better looking yet more empty social hub when compared with its competitors. When taking into account the ways in which Google+ is in fact a richer, more discussion-based and interactive experience, the social network begins to look like a far better place to spend one’s time online.See also Google+ Turns Two: Why I’m Becoming A ConvertLuckily, these somewhat lesser-known features are not at all hidden, but do take a bit of explaining. Here’s three of the best Google+ has to offer today. Hashtags: Google+’s Discussion Discovery FeatureFacebook made a splash last month with the debut of its own hashtags offering, mostly because it was yet-another move aimed at beefing up its discovery offering with features that have worked wonders for other services. But while hashtags are synonymous with Twitter and the trending war between it and Facebook, Google+ has in fact had the hashtag feature since last year. The important question is: Is there any more utility with Google+ hashtags than you get on other platforms? It turns out that yes, there is, for a number of reasons. Most importantly, what makes Google+’s hashtag option not only easier and more elegant to use, but more functionally powerful as well, is the fact that clicking a hashtag does not take you away from the page and away from what made you click in the first place, as it does with both Facebook and Twitter.

ESPN.Alabama is the favorite to win it all this season, according to nearly every sportsbook out there. Nick Saban disagrees with the oddsmakers. Who does the five-time national champion head coach think should be favored to win the national championship?

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Haiti, March 4, 2018 – Port-au-Prince -The Bahamas’ role in the region is rapidly moving towards one of “more leadership” because of the country’s ability to rapidly respond in times of natural disasters such as Hurricanes, Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon. Darren Henfield said Tuesday.Minister Henfield introduced to the Conference the agenda item on Tourism and other issues discussed by Heads of Government on Day Two, which included Air Transportation Issues and Blacklisting and Derisking.Minister Henfield, who took over the Chair as Head of Delegation for The Bahamas following Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis’ departure for New Providence Monday night, said Prime Minister Minnis’ position as the Head of Government of the Caribbean Community responsible for tourism, also carried tremendous significance.“It is important that the Prime Minister is playing a role in the quasi-Cabinet, responsible for Tourism,” Minister Henfield said.Citing the Minnis Administration’s decision to assist Dominica in the aftermath of hurricane devastation last year, the Foreign Affairs Minister said The Bahamas’ ability to respond to natural disasters such as the one in Dominica improves the country’s position regionally.“We have a very good Defence Force and utilities to be able to respond in times of natural disaster and I think that always improves your influence and the way the other countries look at you,” Minister Henfield said.“We sent the HMBS Lawrence Major to Dominica with Defence Force personnel onboard. We had medical doctors on board; we also had firefighters from the Royal Bahamas Police Force onboard to assist Dominica during their time of need.“When you put your money where your mouth is in responding, (countries tend to look up to you.) Now raising the issue of money, you know it is tight all across the region, but you do what you can to assist where you can. In fact, that is the very nature of this body of states called CARICOM and the Caribbean Community, to be responsive to each other’s needs.”Minister Henfield and Minister of Tourism and Aviation, the Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, both addressed Tuesday’s Plenary Session on Tourism. Mr. Henfield delivered The Bahamas’ Opening Statement while Mr. D’Aguilar made a PowerPoint Presentation.“The Paper was very well received this morning. The technocrats from the Caribbean Tourism Office (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) were here and the presentation was very well received; they were all asking for it and we intend to lay it on the table here and give it to them,” Minister Henfield said.“We also intend to send out the presentation in which everybody is raving about the commercial that was shown here this morning encapsulating the entire Caribbean region and what it offers, and so I think we are on the right path.”By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo Caption: The Hon Darren Henfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs, leads The Bahamas’ Delegation on the second day of the 29th Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of the Caribbean Community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on 27 February.

Manager Santiago Solari revealed what he told Vinicius after he scored the goal against Real Valladolid, he also gave his impressions of the win.After so much pressure had mounted against Real Madrid in the last few weeks, the Spanish squad really needed a victory like the one they got today under interim manager Santiago Solari as his decision to use Vinicius paid off. Throughout the whole match, the Argentine manager was able to write down the many concepts that he needs to improve for the next match against Viktoria Plzen and he also took note of the players who are not going through the best moment of the season.The one that especially worried Santi was Gareth Bale, the Welshman left eh pitch of the Bernabeu in the middle of a thunderous jeer because he doesn’t seem to be making the effort from other seasons.Amongst all the players who struggled to find their best form, there was Vinicius who could lift up the spirit of his teammates right after he got on the pitch and didn’t take long to create the first goal at the Bernabeu.After he went to celebrate the goal with Solari on the sideline, we could see the manager shouting instructions to a player who was happy for his moment.👊 That winning feeling!#RMLiga | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/ur3BGMYO1Y— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018After the match, Santiago Solari spoke with the media about Vinicius and many more topics, but the press was a lot more interested in the Brazilian and his performance.When Santiago was questioned about the instructions he gave Vinicius after the first goal, the manager revealed what he said.“I asked him to be more daring on the attack, I asked him to go after the defenders in a one vs one situation, I asked him to dribble and to not be afraid which is something he already does anyway,” said Solari on the Real Madrid website.“But most importantly, I asked him to defend more, which is something that he needs to improve.”“The football players or the people who are inside this world of football cannot fight with what happens outside of the pitch, we can’t change the mind of the media.”“I love the people getting hopeful for players like Vinicius, who is still 18 and has his whole career in front of him.”“All the analysis about him will need to get made 20 years from now, once he’s finished his career.”Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…“For now, Vinicius is one more element from the squad, who has his obvious virtues and his defects as well. But let’s all remember that he is still an 18-year old lad, please,” he added.🏁 FT: @RealMadrid 2-0 @realvalladolid (Kiko Olivas (og) 83′, @SergioRamos 88′ (p)).#Emirates | #RMLiga pic.twitter.com/KKsvc6gWk4— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018When asked about the result of the game and what he thought can be improved, Santiago Solari was mostly happy because the squad was able to get the three points.However, Santi understands football differently and he confessed that he would’ve loved to win the game by many more goals but he understands that football doesn’t work like that.“You can’t always win by a large margin during the most delicate moments. This has been a very challenging test for us against a very difficult opponent, they took this match very seriously and were always very close together which is always harmful to us,” continued Solari.“I would like to congratulate the lads because they played a very serious game, very strict. Games with results like this are always like that.”“This is what football is all about, very visceral, emotional, it relies a lot on self-confidence from the players.”“The whole dynamic changed after the first goal and the hormones flowed inside the pitch after that. Scoring the first goal was very important, as it was also important to keep a clean sheet.”“Valladolid is a very tough opponent, they hadn’t lost in the last seven matches. This is a very serious squad and they can hurt you when you leave them space to do it. We needed these three points.”2We need to keep calm, we can’t surrender and we need to stay organized in order to create a balance but I think we could pull it off. I’m very well actually, I have been in this situation before as a player, I am already used to the stadium,” he concluded.🎙💬 Santiago Solari takes charge of @realmadrid in a LaLiga match for the first time tomorrow!
