Lima kandidat pengganti Ancelotti sudah dipersiapkan oleh pihak Real Madrid. Setelah secara resmi Los Blancos memecat Carlo Ancelotti dari jabatan pelatih, otomatis manajemen Madrid harus mencari suksesor Ancelotti untuk melatih para punggawanya pada musim depan. Beberapa nama sudah menjadi bidikan dari manajemen teras Madrid. Beberapa nama memang sudah diprediksi akan menggantikan Ancelotti sebagai pelatih. Namun demikian, publik khususnya para pecinta dari Real Madrid akan terus bertanya-tanya, siapa sebenarnya yang akan melatih tim kesayangannya musim depan. Pasalnya, seorang pelatih apalagi yang melatih tim besar dan elite seperti Real Madrid sangat ditunggu kabarnya. Mereka menganggap bahwa peran seorang pelatih dalam sebuah tim sangat besar artinya. Tidak menutup kemungkinan peran pelatih bisa membuat tim semakin berperforma bagus, atau malah sebaliknya. Sebagai contoh, Anda mungkin mengenal tim Machester United yang berkompetisi di Premier League. Setelah ditinggalkan oleh Sir Alex Fergusson yang pensiun sebagai pelatih, hanya ada satu kandidat terkuat, yaitu David Moyes. Kabarnya, Fergie sendiri yang menunjuk Moyes sebagai suksesor dirinya. Namun kenyataannya, Moyes belum berhasil menangani tim sebesar Setan Merah. Mantan pelatih Everton itu malahan semakin menenggelamkan MU ke dasar klasemen Premier League. Akhirnya, pihak manajemen Setan Merah segera memecatnya tanpa menunggu musim berakhir. Begitu tragis nasib Moyes. Lebih beruntung nasib Ancelotti yang ditunggu hingga musim ini berakhir, kemudian pihak manajemen memecatnya.
Siapa saja lima kandidat pengganti Ancelotti?
Berikut akan diinformasikan mengenai lima kandidat pengganti Ancelotti yang sudah dibidik oleh pihak Real Madrid, yaitu sebagai berikut.
Pertama, Zinedine Zidane. Legenda sepak bola dari Prancis ini dulunya juga pernah merumput bersama Real Madrid. Zidane juga pernah menjadi asisten pelatih dari Ancelotti. Sekarang, Zidane menjadi pelatih dari klub papan bawah La Liga, yaitu Real Madrid Castilla. Kemampuannya di tingkat elite memang belum terbukti karena memang belum memiliki pengalaman di sana.
Kedua, Rafael Benitez. Kontraknya sebagai pelatih di Napoli yang berkompetisi di Serie A Italia memang habis akhir musim ini. Oleh karena itulah, Benitez menjadi salah satu kandidat pelatih untuk Los Blancos. Bahkan, Benitez sudah pernah menangani Real Madrid. Oleh karena itulah, tidak heran jika beberapa pihak sangat mengandalkan Benitez yang sudah pasti mengetahui luar dalam Real Madrid.
Ketiga, Jurgen Klopp. Pelatih asal Jerman ini juga sudah habis kontraknya dengan Borrusia Dortmund selama 7 musim. Berbagai gelar sudah dipersembahkan di Signal Iduna Park. Oleh karena itu, manajemen Madrid juga membidiknya sebagai suksesor Ancelotti.
Keempat, Jorge Jesus. Seorang pelatih asal Portugal yang saat ini melatih Benfica. Kemampuannya cukup diperhitungkan karena bersama Benfica, Jesus bisa menorehkan gelar yang cukup fantastis di kancah kompetisi domestik.
Kelima, Unai Emery. Pelatih asal Spanyol ini menangani tim sevilla sekarang. Emery dikabarkan sudah menjalin komunikasi dengan AC Milan. Namun kelihatannya, Real Madrid tidak ingin kecolongan Emery.
Mengenang jasa Ancelotti untuk Los Blancos
Hanya di musim ini Los Blancos berpuasa gelar, sehingga membuat manajemen terasnya memecat Ancelotti. Padahal, sejak berlabuh di Santiago Bernabeu tahun 2013 silam, Ancelotti sudah memberikan sederet gelar untuk Los Blancos. Mulai dari Liga Champions, Piala Dunia Antarklub, UEFA Super Cup, serta Copa del Rey. Hanya dengan rentang waktu dua musim saja, Ancelotti bersama para punggawa Madrid bisa meraih gelar bergengsi seperti itu. Namun, sudah terlambat karena Real Madrid mempersiapkan lima kandidat pengganti Ancelotti.
The Everest Base Camp has been a popular site, both for mountain climbers and tourists alike. This is not only a place for climbing. The Everest Base Camp has also become a site of cultural and natural heritage of Sherpa culture. You will experience for yourself, the beauty of the Himalayan Mountains and its people.
What is an “Everest Base Camp”?
The name, usually shortened into EBC, is a name that describes the two base camps of Mount Everest. These basecamps are located on south and north side of Mount Everest. The south base camp is located in Nepal. It has an altitude of 5,463 meters. The other opposite side of the base camp is in Tibet, with an altitude of 16,900 ft high. Why are these two spots called the “Everest Base Camp”? This is because mountain climbers usually used as the first stop, or literally the base camp, for those who are going to continue up on the mountain. It is also a resting place and base camp for those who descend from the mountain top.
Each base camp has its own route. The south base camp is used if you are climbing via the southeast ridge. The north one is used if you are climbing via the northeast ridge. The base camps are usually used as a resting place for several nights by the mountain climbers. They take several days of rest to adjust with the climate of the region. Adjusting with the new climate is important as climbers who usually live on the low lands need to adjust to the density and air pressure on the mountains, even to the more sever condition once they continue their climb up. This is needed as a prevention to suffering from altitude sickness.
How the “Everest Base Camp” treks serve the beginners
To visit the base camp, you need to choose first, from which side you want to climb. The more popular trek is the south base camp, which is located in Nepal. It takes only 25 minutes flight from Kathmandu to reach the first climbing spot, Lukla. There are dozens of flights everyday. If you have more time and would like to enjoy a longer trekking time, you can fly to Phaplu airport, located on south of Lukla. From Phaplu, you need 2 to 3 days of trekking to Lukla. You can also take another route from Jiri, which will take 5 to 7 days of trekking to reach Lukla. Climbers said that these two alternative routes are more pleasant as there are not as much people on the way. They also get to enjoy the scenery. And one other thing which you might consider; it is much safer than flying to Lukla. If you take the land routes, you will need to pay a 3,000 Rs of entry fee to enter the Sagarmatha National Park, the check point, just after Monju village.
As you walk from Lukla to the Everest South Base Camp, you will be enriched with the beauties of the local culture. You can visit the monasteries and museums along the way. There, the people will serve you with hospitality and great food. If you would like to experience it by yourself, the best time to go is during the dry season (March-May and September-December).

One of those ten important survival systems is illumination, which placed in the fourth place of the things that any mountaineer must carry along.

Especially during moonless night, it is easy for outdoor explorer to get lost in the dark. If it is like that and you have no clue about where you are going, then you should totally have some means of light or illumination by your side. You will need a headlamp to guide where you are going.
When Night Creeps In
If you are someone who climb regularly, then one of these days you ought to spend your night on some dark summit or cliff. Your best plan to navigate through the landscape is to have some proper lighting and work your way around. Lots of things can basically happen when you are out in the wilderness. Especially if you have to be trapped in some cliff without means of navigating yourself out from the darkness. According to the standard safety, the fourth essential survival system for the Mountaineers is Illumination. A lightweight headlamp is typically the best choice you can get in one of these days.

Aside from being compact and lightweight, headlamp is also energy-efficient and you don’t even need your hand to hold it while you try doing other tasks. Furthermore, it does not have to be handled gently, even when it is used roughly, the filaments of the light would not break so easily and can still provide you with sufficient means of lighting.
What You Need to look for in a Headlamp
High and Low Beams are some of the things that you need to look for in your head-torch or headlamp. Alongside that, low and high setting, a built-in low battery indicator, as well as a strobe lighting setting when emergency calls for it are some of the qualities that you need to look for in your headlamp. If you are descending a mountain or hiking, make sure you have a headlamp which beam is capable of reaching 300 feet, if you are climbing on the other hand, you don’t need to have a headlamp which beam can reach more than sixty-feet. Also extra batteries are a must, they take little to no room in your backpack, and they don’t even weigh much too. Candle and matches are another source of light that any adventurer must consider as extra light sources. When the journey is long and the destination is still far, having additional matches and candle lighting can provide you with extra illumination when the time calls for it. Having an extra light source is never a wrong move to do; you can even bring along flashlight just to make sure that everyone will have a proper illumination.
