The man who the Norwegian replaced – Jose Mourinho has far better credentials.Manchester United take on Southampton tomorrow at the St.Mary’s and OGS and his men would love to bounce back.Advertisementlast_img read more

Benzema soars above the wreckage of Madrid’s wasted season

first_imgAmid the wreckage of Real Madrid’s season, there are one or two players who can stand up tall and say they did their best.One of the very few footballers whose reputation has been enhanced in a shocking campaign which is effectively over by March has been Karim Benzema.Real Madrid are out of the Copa del Rey, out of the Champions League and 12 points behind Barcelona in La Liga, with nothing to be proud of, but French striker Benzema is still ticking. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The forward struck twice to help a stuttering Madrid to an eventually easy 4-1 win over Real Valladolid at the Jose Zorilla Stadium on Sunday, making a game that started off tricky, comfortable in the end.Valladolid coach Sergio is no stranger to inflicting misery on Real Madrid, having been part of the Deportivo La Coruna team which triumphed at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 2002 Copa del Rey final.Madrid had been founded 100 years to the day beforehand, but Sergio’s Depor earned a stunning 2-1 win over Madrid – for whom Santiago Solari was playing.And it seemed he was going to pile on more woe for Madrid after a week in which their entire season collapsed.Valladolid earned a penalty early on, with Alvaro Odriozola haplessly dragging down Oscar Plano in the area. However, midfielder Ruben Alcaraz punted it high over the crossbar with one of the more outrageous spot-kick misses in recent years.Moments later and the hosts, battling relegation, had scored.Sergi Guardiola, who was brilliant but endured an extremely frustrating night, scored but the goal was disallowed by VAR, after Keko was half a yard offside in the build-up.The forward then saw another goal ruled out, this time offside himself by a similar distance.Eventually, Anuar sent Valladolid ahead and this time it counted, but it also seemed to arouse Madrid from their miserable slumber.Raphael Varane equalised to send the teams in level at the break, but in the second half, Madrid found some of the skill and quality which deep down they have, but has stayed buried too often this season.Odriozola made amends for his first-half mistake by winning a penalty and Benzema slotted home to send Los Blancos ahead.Real Madrid have scored every single one of the 12 penalties they have been given in all competitions this season.Real MadridMeanwhile, Valladolid have missed all five of the five they were given. A shocking statistic which will be one of the reasons they may eventually go down – sitting 16th, one point above the drop zone.Madrid, meanwhile, may be missing Cristiano Ronaldo in many ways but at least they have not lost out when it comes to spot kicks.Ramos, Bale and Benzema have been dispatching them and at trying times like these, even tiny victories must be cherished.That’s why Benzema celebrated vociferously as he headed in his second goal of the night because he had a point to prove.Luka Modric criticised the club’s forwards and strategic planning before the humiliating Champions League knock-out by Ajax, saying that Benzema, Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio and Co. were doing a bad job of covering for Ronaldo’s departure.“Cristiano scored 50 goals and you can’t find someone today who scores that many,” said Modric. “Some of us have to take a step forward and, while not scoring 50, what we need is two or three players who score 15, 20, or 10 goals and we don’t have that.”However, with his brace here, Benzema took his tally to 22 goals in 44 matches, a respectable total, and more goals than he has scored since the 2014-15 season.Only three times in his Madrid career has he scored more goals, with 32 his largest haul, in 2011-12.Modric rattled in the fourth in the final stages, at least pulling his weight too, as Madrid moved 10 points clear of Alaves in fifth – despite Casemiro’s late red card, remarkably his first for Madrid. Now they are looking downwards, trying to ensure they finish fourth, rather than upwards.That is where Madrid gazes deserve to be for the most part this season, with the exception of Benzema, who can hold his head up high.last_img read more

Report: Inter 0 Sassuolo 0

first_imgInter rode their luck on the way to an underwhelming 0-0 home draw against Sassuolo in their first Serie A outing of 2019.Roberto De Zerbi’s men created the best of the opportunities and will count themselves unfortunate not to have snapped what is now a five-match winless streak in all competitions.San Siro was closed to all but 11,000 local children as Inter began a two-match stadium closure following the alleged racial abuse of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly last month, although there was no lack of intensity in an entertaining contest. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Matteo Politano and Kevin Prince-Boateng both went close to a winner either side of half-time but, unable to find a way past a team that conceded nine times in their final two league fixtures of last year, the Nerazzurri can have few complaints over a result that leaves them four points behind second-placed Napoli, who host Lazio on Sunday.Inter had lost seven of their last eight Serie A meetings with Sassuolo and found themselves on the back foot during the opening 25 minutes.Manuel Locatelli burst through midfield and fired one shot wide while Boateng and Domenico Berardi both tested Samir Handanovic.The impressive Politano helped turn the tide by posing problems at the other end and, from Ivan Perisic’s cross, forced Andrea Consigli into a sharp close-range save on the half-hour mark.2 – @Inter have conceded only two goals during the first halves in Serie A this season: a record among the top five European Leagues 2018/19. Solid.#InterSassuolo #SerieA— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) January 19, 2019The end-to-end action continued after the interval as Boateng rose unchallenged to meet Locatelli’s left-sided cross, but his header was straight at Handanovic.Inter’s grip on a point looked tenuous until the end and they were indebted to veteran goalkeeper Handanovic and centre-back Milan Skriniar for blocking close-range efforts from Jeremie Boga and Mehdi Bourabia amid a scramble in the box late in proceedings.What does it mean? Calm needed over Icardi contract talksInter officials are confident that the protracted negotiations surrounding Mauro Icardi’s contract extension will soon be resolved and it certainly seems a case of the sooner the better for a variety of reasons.In addition to warding off overseas interest, a conclusion to the ongoing discussions would surely aid Icardi in delivering more influential performances than the rather anonymous showing he served up on Saturday.Locatelli flourishes on return to MilanAC Milan may regret their decision to allow Locatelli to leave for Sassuolo on the strength of his showing back at San Siro. The on-loan midfielder, who is obliged to join the Neroverdi on a permanent basis at the end of the season, covered plenty of ground and was at the heart of his side’s best attacking moves.De Vrij under parSpalletti spoke highly of Stefan de Vrij in the lead-up to this match. He may be more reserved ahead of the next one. Netherlands international De Vrij, though undoubtedly a player of high quality, often seemed lost in ill-advised attempts to shackle Sassuolo’s attackers, not knowing exactly which player to mark and when.Key Opta Facts- This is the first draw in Serie A between Inter and Sassuolo.- Inter have scored only one goal in their last four meetings vs Sassuolo in Serie A.- Inter have kept a clean sheet against Sassuolo after conceding at least one goal in all their previous four encounters vs them in the top flight.- Inter have conceded only two goals during the first halves in Serie A this season: a record among the top five European Leagues 2018-19. What’s next?Inter are back in action away to mid-table Torino next Sunday while Sassuolo have a day fewer to prepare for Cagliari’s visit. read morelast_img read more

Report: Tottenham 2 Watford 1

first_imgSon Heung-min and Fernando Llorente scored in the last 10 minutes to spare Tottenham’s blushes, securing a 2-1 win over Watford on Wednesday.Mauricio Pochettino’s injury-hit side looked to be heading for a third successive home defeat in the Premier League after Craig Cathcart’s first-half goal, but Son – back from Asian Cup duty – levelled late on and then Llorente made amends after wasting several presentable chances earlier in the match.Straight back into the team after his period of absence, Son was the first to go close early on, but Watford grew into the contest and went ahead just before the break through Cathcart’s scrappy goal. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? The wastefulness of Llorente – starting in place of the injured Harry Kane – looked as though it was going to cost Spurs, but Son restored parity and then the Spanish striker completed the turnaround on a dramatic night at Wembley.Son looked sharp early on and almost opened the scoring in the ninth minute, his 25-yard strike agonisingly missing the top-left corner.Hugo Lloris did not cover himself in glory in the 38th minute, however, as his positioning was way off at a corner and Cathcart bundled home to beat the stranded Frenchman.Llorente was guilty of an inexplicable miss at the start of the second half, seeing his initial close-range shot saved, before somehow kneeing the rebound over from about three yards.Daryl Janmaat almost turned an Christian Eriksen free-kick into his own goal just past the hour, as Ben Foster made a crucial save, before Llorente then headed wide from close in as Toby Alderweireld chipped the ball back into the danger zone.Tottenham’s luck changed in the 80th minute, however, as Llorente nudged the ball on to Son in the area and the South Korean finished emphatically past Foster.Llorente then finally found his mark three minutes from the end, sending a looping header in from Danny Rose’s cross.Never in doubt. #COYS pic.twitter.com/S6rEEpHOmD— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) January 30, 2019 What does it mean? Spurs close on Manchester City It is amazing how much can change in a few minutes. When they were staring at defeat, Spurs were going to be staying just four points above Chelsea and Arsenal. However, with the late turnaround, they now find themselves only two adrift of second-placed City and seven clear of the two clubs behind them. Given the other results this matchday, this could be a potentially crucial moment in Tottenham’s season.Rose a thorn in Watford’s side While it was certainly not a vintage display from Spurs, Rose did catch the eye on the left flank. The full-back got forward constantly, making himself a real outlet, and his cross ultimately provided the winning goalLloris bailed out Had it not been for Spurs’ late goals, plenty would have pointed the finger at Lloris. His poor position was vital for the Watford goal – luckily for him it did not cost Pochettino’s men.Key Opta facts- Tottenham (54 points) have at least four more points after 24 Premier League games than they have ever had at this stage of the competition, last recording as many at this stage in the top-flight during their title winning season back in 1960-61 (65 points – 3/pts for a win).- Only against Arsenal (9) and Manchester United (10) have Watford lost more Premier League games against than they have against Spurs (8).- Watford have now lost four straight matches at Wembley Stadium, only Brentford (5), Shrewsbury Town (5) and Newcastle United (7) are on longer current such losing runs than the Hornets.What’s next? Spurs are at home again on Saturday, as Newcastle United visit Wembley. Watford travel to Brighton and Hove Albion the same day.last_img read more

How to Tie a Scarf in 8 Easy Ways (Video)

first_img 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know If worn wrong, a scarf makes you look like an overgrown kindergartner whose mother just sent him out to play in the snow. Worn right, however, a scarf can tie together your entire outfit and add a dash of personality to an otherwise bland ensemble. The thing is, there’s more than one way to wear a scarf, and certain knots or wraps are better for certain situations. So, to help you protect your neck and look great doing it, we’ve put together this quick guide on how to tie a scarf properly in eight different ways.How to Tie a ScarfThe Parisian KnotThis one is fairly common, and also happens to be one of the easiest to pull off. To tie it, simply fold your scarf in half lengthwise and drape it around your neck. This should leave you with two loose ends hanging to one side, and a loop hanging to the other. Take the loose ends and pull them through the loop, and play with the tautness until it feels comfortable. Boom. You’re done. This knot is usually best for long scarves and scarves that aren’t very thick, since doubling it over gives it some extra girth.The Once-AroundThis one is really more of a wrap than a knot, but it gets the job done, and can be worn in a few different ways. Wrapping it is pretty straightforward. Start by draping the scarf around your neck with one side longer than the other, then take the long end and wrap it around your neck one time. The beauty of this style is that it makes the scarf easy to tighten or loosen as necessary. If a chilly breeze suddenly whips through the street, just tug on the loose ends and it’ll tighten up around your neck. For longer scarves, you can do an additional neck wrap and make it a Twice-Around for extra warmth.The AscotAlso known as the Overhand Knot, this is one of the more popular scarf knots in the game. To tie it, start by draping the scarf around your neck, as always. Then, take both ends of the scarf and tie them “over-and-under,” as if you were starting to do up a giant pair of shoelaces. To finish it off, adjust the front so that the uppermost length of scarf covers the knot beneath it, and play with the fabric a bit to make it a bit more smooth.The Statement DrapeAn excellent choice for those with a flair for the dramatic, this drape is as simple as it is elegant. Simply hang a medium-length scarf (of either pliable silk or soft cotton) around your neck with both ends even at your side. Grab the right end and drape across your left shoulder until the scarf falls down your back. Then pick up the left end and do the same over the right shoulder. Adjust until cozy.The All-The-Way-AroundHip scarf aficionados are particularly fond of this next style, which involves taking your scarf (we prefer a long, knit option for this) and wrapping it around your neck until there’s nothing left to wrap. This creates a thick circular muff that not only protects your skin from the cold but looks downright fashion-forward. For extra security, tuck the ends of your scarf into the hole.The CloverIf you’re looking for optimized comfort in the face of freezing cold temperatures, we recommend this knot. Start by folding a long scarf in half and draping it across your neck. You should have a closed loop on one side and two free ends on the other. Take one of these loose ends and pull it through the hole. Once it’s gone through, give the hole one twist until it’s in a figure-eight. Thread the second loose end through the second hole and pull to tighten.The ShawlWhen it’s cold outside but the sun is shining and the sky is clear, you may not need a super tight knot. In those instances, grab your favorite blanket-like scarf (i.e. one that’s as long as it is wide) and drape it over your shoulders until the upper portion of your back is covered. After doing this, grab the end that falls to your right and pull it over your left. This style can be worn over a suit jacket or sweater and looks just as smart on its own as it does fastened with a handsome silver pin.The Criss-CrossPerhaps the most straightforward style on this list, all you need for this look is a sleek suit jacket and a long scarf that’s got a bit of body to it. Before you put on the jacket, drape the scarf around your neck until the ends fall evenly at your side. Then, cross the scarf at its middle until you make an elongated X. Throw on your jacket and button it so that the cross stays secure and the scarf elegantly traces the neckline of your jacket.Now that you know how to tie a scarf, maybe it’s time you actually get one, so check out all the best scarves for men here.

BJP chief Amit Shah hits out at Kanimozhi Karti Chidambaram

first_imgTuticorin (TN): BJP president Amit Shah Tuesday charged Congress nominee Karti Chidambaram contesting from Sivaganga Lok Sabha seat and DMK’s Kanimozhi seeking election from here with being tainted by corruption. Addressing a poll rally here, he hit out at National Conference leader Omar Abudullah for his “Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir,” line, and asked the people whether they supported the Kashmir leader’s remarks. “Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India, we will never compromise on the Kashmir issue,” he said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The party chief alleged the candidates nominated by Congress and DMK – the likes of Karti Chidambaram, Kanimozhi and A Raja (from Nilgiris) – were tainted by graft. Shah, seeking votes for his party candidate and State unit chief Tamilisai Soundararajan said “when BJP-led government returns to power,” at the Centre it would continue contributing even more for the growth of Tamil Nadu. Shah said though BJP’s Pon Radhakrishnan alone had won from Kanyakumari in 2014 Lok Sabha polls, his party led NDA made two from Tamil Nadu –Radhakrishnan and Nirmala Sitharaman– as Union Ministers. He said the BJP government avenged the Pulwama attacks through air attacks on Pakistan. Citing the air strike to avenge the Pulwama attacks, he asked: “Should we not avenge the Pulwama attacks, on which the people at the rally responded positively.last_img read more

UNs global report on youth highlights rising concerns over lack of job

6 February 2012A lack of job opportunities, inadequate education, vulnerable working conditions and insufficient government investment are some of the main concerns of young people around the world, according to a United Nations report on youth published today. The latest World Youth Report, released by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), for the first time included inputs from young people – with many participating in an online discussion on youth employment.For almost one month, young people from the ages of 15 to 30 took part in an online consultation organized by DESA to share their views, experiences and recommendations on preparing for, entering and remaining active in the working force. Their contributions are the main subject of the report.A main concern in the discussions was that current education systems are not preparing young people adequately to compete in the job market.“Young people questioned the quality of education they and their peers receive: whether or not it is relevant to available jobs, how their knowledge and skills will serve them in the long-term, and the extent to which decision-makers are committed to needed investment in the potential of young people,” the report said.Youth were especially worried that the education they received was overly theoretical, leaving them to acquire practical skills on their own. “Today it should be easier to find a job because our generation is the most educated but there is an inadequacy between the training offered and the needs of the labour market,” said Amadou, a Senegalese 24-year-old who participated.Many also expressed concern about their governments not doing enough to help them overcome unemployment, stressing that without a lack of opportunities, they cannot apply their skills. “What is the use of education if we are not given a chance to put our knowledge and skills into work?” asked Mridula, a 16-year old from India.Since the start of the global economic crisis, young people have faced particularly hard conditions when trying to transition from schools to the labour market. In the aftermath of the economic crisis in 2009, global youth unemployment rate saw its largest annual increase on record, resulting in some 75.8 million unemployed youth. Joblessness rates among youth are also significantly higher than adult ones. In 2010, for example, the youth unemployment rate was 12.6 per cent, compared to 4.8 per cent for adults.“Today we have the largest generation of young people the world has ever known,” said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the report’s introduction. “They are demanding their rights and a greater voice in economic and political life. We need to pull the UN system together like never before to support a new social contract of job-rich economic growth. Let us start with young people.”The report also reveals that even after finding work young people face unstable conditions, as they are often the last to be hired and the first to be dismissed. It also noted that young women face greater challenges than their male counterparts when accessing jobs, with many having to work part time or in lower-paid occupations.Despite the many obstacles they described, young people were hopeful and optimistic that they would be able to not only find jobs, but also make significant contributions to their society. The report shows that they are placing more and more importance in creating their own opportunities and becoming entrepreneurs rather than being employed by large companies.The report also showed that youth are looking to innovate in areas that are growing such as green technologies and communications.“Young people are, in general, more conscious of global issues like climate change and social equity. I think that promotion of green economies among youth is a winning solution,” said Michael, a 23-year-old who is a member of the World Esperanto Youth Organization.Some 1,100 contributions, as well as photos and videos, were received from young people around the world during the four-week consultation period. The discussions were conducted mainly in the English language, but participants were also invited to post comments in the French and Spanish languages. Many posts were translated on a volunteer basis, and Google Translate was also made available on the platform. DESA noted that extensive outreach efforts were made to reach as many young people as possible, paying attention to geographic, age, gender and other considerations. However, it noted that the report only reflects the opinions of youth who have access to the Internet, stressing the need to widen consultations to reach those without online access. read more

Norfolk reviews cat control budget

The cat control community could learn this week whether Norfolk County will continue supporting its efforts beyond 2019.Volunteers engaged in trap, neuter and re-home were disappointed earlier this year when Norfolk council reduced their funding this year from $30,000 to $20,000.In January, council was seeking savings in this year’s operating budget and the cat-control community was called on to make a contribution. Council could revisit the matter at its meeting Tuesday.“We would like to respectfully request that council reconsider re-instating the $10,000 shortfall to this very important program and also seriously reconsider the discussion about terminating the program next year because things would very quickly get out of control again,” Sandi Fettes of Simcoe, a spokesperson for Norfolk PAWS, said in a presentation to council last month.Council responded to Fettes’ presentation by asking staff to gather details on Norfolk’s cat-control efforts to date. That report will be tabled at Tuesday’s meeting.In her report, Pam Duesling, Norfolk’s general manager of development and cultural services, says the county enlisted the support of volunteer groups in 2016 to help control feral cats after receiving estimates that nearly 30,000 were roaming at large. Many live in old barns and other rural settings conducive to cat colonies.Norfolk got involved in response to the large number of cats at issue, the serious diseases they carry, and their impact on wildlife. Wildlife in Norfolk is not adapted to cat predation and is easy pickings for these skillful hunters. Vulnerable species include birds and small mammals such as chipmunks.“It is essential — not only for residents of Norfolk County — but also the cats and for the protection of birds to find a progressive means of controlling feral cats,” Duesling says in her report.“This is particularly critical in Norfolk County, home to an enormous variety of bird species, including a number of species-at-risk (such as) the prothonotary warbler, cerulean warbler, hooded warbler, Louisiana water thrush, wood thrush, eastern wood pewee, bobolink, eastern meadowlark, barn swallow, bank swallow and the least bittern.“Trap, neuter, vaccinate and release/re-home practices are suggested as a humane and non-lethal solution to reduce populations of feral cats.”In her report, Duesling says Norfolk County earmarked $50,000 for cat control in 2017.This money was split between the Simcoe & District Humane Society and Norfolk PAWS, which at the time was an umbrella group encompassing Purrfect Companions, Pawsitive Solutions and Night and Day Animal Rescue.In 2017, Norfolk PAWS and SDHS caught and neutered 714 homeless cats. Most were adopted into new homes while only a handful was returned to managed colony settings. The actual cost to the municipality in 2017 was $38,270 – in part –because the local humane society didn’t spend its entire allocation.In 2018, the cat-control budget was reduced to $40,000. The contract was awarded to Purrfect Companions, which trapped and neutered 954 cats. Norfolk was invoiced for 476 at a cost of about $60 per animal. The total cost to the municipality in 2018 was $35,700.In her report, Duesling says nine percent of the cats that passed through Purrfect Companions last year were returned to a managed colony. At a managed colony, the cats are left alone but are fed and monitored for disease.Homes were found for 800 at cost to the new owners of between $80 and $150 per feline.Purrfect Companions also has the county contract for 2019. In her report, Duesling says cat control “is not a mandated service.”After Fettes made her presentation March 19, Mayor Kristal Chopp said the cat control program deserves a second look and that a continuation into 2020 may be beneficial.Tuesday’s meeting of Norfolk council will be held in the council chamber at Governor Simcoe Square beginning at 3 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Mens Basketball Chris Holtmann prepares team for Spain trip

Ohio State junior guard C.J. Jackson (3) talks with head coach Chris Holtmann during a timeout in the first half of the game against Radford on Nov. 12. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignA day after the men’s basketball team hosted an open practices for fans to come out and get a look at the team without star forward Keita Bates-Diop, the Buckeyes will be travelling to Spain to face professional-level talent in Europe.The outcomes of those games may not matter much, but for head coach Chris Holtmann, a successful trip is about making sure his players stay healthy and continue growing as a group.“Health, coming back healthy and a great educational experience and then obviously a chance for us to get to know each other,” Holtmann said. “That’s really what we’re hoping to get out of this trip.”The team will be in Europe until Aug. 11, and will play opponents in Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia.Holtmann said the games are important, but, when looking at things off the court, he said he was excited about how the players will do when put in a new situation.“It’s a little bit like you’re going on a trip with your kids and you’re kind of anxious to see how they respond to seeing a different place,” Holtmann said. “Seeing how our guys, that maybe haven’t been out of the country much or at all, kind of respond to it a new environment.”Holtmann said that the team is a “full go” for the trip, except for Florida State transfer guard C.J. Walker, who will not play this season due to transfer rules.“He and I talked and, it’s a situation where, you know, he’s not playing on this year’s team, so I just said, ‘hey, why don’t you go kind of enjoy some time with family,’” Holtmann said. “He’s not going to be able to play for us even though he is a big part of our team.”After such a successful year in Holtmann’s first season as Ohio State’s coach, expectations continue to be high that he can bring the Buckeyes back to the NCAA Tournament, even without the help of Bates-Diop, Jae’Sean Tate and Kam Williams.Still, Holtmann said that this team is much younger, that he still has a lot to learn about them and that this Spain trip may help with some of the learning.“You really did kind of have some guys [last year] that you said, unless something crazy happens those guys are going to start,” Holtmann said. “We certainly have some returning guys with experience, but I think there maybe are still things that need to be evaluated more with this group.” read more

Bernie Ecclestone hits back at James Stunt for badmouthing his exwife

first_img She wrote: “What kind of ‘man’ does this on his daughter’s birthday? Unless he stops telling lies about my family we will have to start telling the truth about him.”Stunt used his Tatler interview to declare that he is “as rich as ever”, boasting of owning 200 cars and gambling up to £5 million per night.He also discussed his links both to the notorious Adams crime family and to the Royal family, showing off correspondence with the Prince of Wales and claiming that he dated “a very famous member of the Royal family” for four years but managed to keep it out of the public eye.Stunt said his self-made businessman father, Geoffrey, does not blame Petra for the divorce but “he definitely does blame that dwarf Bernie” for interfering in the marriage.During the marriage, the couple divided their time between a Grade II-listed home in Chelsea, said to be worth £100 million, and a £158 million mansion in Los Angeles that featured 27 bathrooms and a room reserved for wrapping presents.  The 87-year-old business magnate went on to say that it is a “pity” that Stunt had insulted the Ecclestone family, adding:  “He was a nice guy when he got married.”Writing on Instagram, Petra’s older sister Tamara, 33, criticised Stunt for making the jibes “on his daughter’s birthday”. James Stunt and Petra Ecclestone Stunt arrive at LouLou’s restaurant in Mayfair in 2014 Credit:Keith Hewitt Bernie Ecclestone has hit back at James Stunt for badmouthing his ex-wife.  The former Formula One tycoon has criticised Stunt after he claimed that his public image went downhill when he married “a C-list celebrity’s daughter”.Stunt’s six-year marriage to Petra ended in an acrimonious divorce battle last year, in which it was alleged he made a gun gesture at Ecclestone. In an interview with Tatler magazine, Stunt took aim at his former in-laws, referring to Bernie Ecclestone as “that dwarf Bernie”, while calling his wife Slavia “Lady Macbeth”.On Tuesday, Bernie Ecclestone suggested that drugs were to blame for the breakdown of his daughter’s marriage to Stunt.“He got heavily into drugs and that has changed him and they have taken their toll. It is a great shame as James was a nice man when he got married,” Bernie Ecclestone told Mail Online. “I hope he stands out as an example to young people who can see the damage that drugs can do.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Archbishop of York Parishes are enabling abuse by refusing to punish paedophiles

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The Archbishop of York has blamed parishes for enabling child sexual abuse as they refuse to punish paedophiles whom they deem to be “lovely people” and “fantastic priests”.Dr John Sentamu told a government inquiry yesterday that among some dioceses there was the misconception that safeguarding was merely an “optional extra”.The Archbishop, who is due to retire next year, was responding to allegations that there were attitudes still prevalent within the Church of England that there could be no sex offending without corroborative evidence. He was also questioned about allegations from a surviving victim, the Rev Matthew Ineson.Giving evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) for the first time, Dr Sentamu said: “I have come across [examples] in my diocese where three clergy persons were convicted and the parishes where they had served, they all tell you it couldn’t be true, in spite of the fact that people have been convicted.”Dr Sentamu, 70, denied that such attitudes regarding reporting abuse were inextricably linked to the Church.Prior to the Archbishop giving evidence, the IICSA panel heard from Mr Ineson, who said that his disclosures about being sexually abused as a teenager were ignored by senior clerics. Mr Ineson, who has waived his right to anonymity, called for changes to the way the Church investigates safeguarding issues and complaints about clerics. Mr Ineson told the inquiry how he suffered abuse at the hands of priest Trevor Devamanikkam, who took his own life in 2017 on the day he was due to appear in court accused of sexual offences against him.He said he later made disclosures to a number of bishops and archbishops but they were ignored and no further action was taken by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.Mr Ineson, who was ordained in 2000 and practised in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, said he made his first disclosures between 2012 and 2013 and sent copies to the Bishop of Beverley and Dr Sentamu.Mr Ineson told the inquiry that the only person to reply was Dr Sentamu, who wrote: “Please be assured of my prayers and best wishes at this difficult time.” When asked about the case of Mr Ineson, Dr Sentamu said he received a copy of his letter but assumed the Bishop of Sheffield would deal with it because it was his responsibility.The Right Rev Justin Welby is due to give evidence to the inquiry today. read more

Dalidakis brings Girls In Tech to Melbourne

first_imgWomen represent just 20 per cent of Australia’s digital technology workforce, with nearly a third of female digital technology workers leaving the sector within 10-15 years of service. This is well below the participation rate of women in other industries such as finance and insurance (27 per cent) and women in Australia’s workforce (46 per cent).Meanwhile, only 14 per cent of digital technology graduates are females. Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade Philip Dalidakis, in an effort to ramp up support for girls and women in the digital technology sector, officially launched the Australian chapter of Girls in Tech last night. “Girls in Tech will play a leading role in helping to address the gender imbalance in Australia’s digital technology sector, by empowering girls and women to cultivate ideas and learn new skills to help advance their careers,” Mr Dalidakis said. “If we want to become the number one tech destination across the Asia Pacific, the industry needs to step-up and create more opportunities for girls and women.” Girls in Tech is a global non-profit organisation focused on engagement, education and empowerment of women in digital technology. The organisation runs workshops, courses, events and programs for women who are studying or working in the tech industry, in the hope of women becoming more involved in science and technology.The minister concluded that such collaborative networks will drive lasting change in the industry – providing the support women and girls in Victoria need to drive digital technologies and the economy.

Le Text neck le mal qui guette les accros du SMS

first_imgLe “Text neck”, le mal qui guette les accros du SMSD’après un chiropracteur britannique, l’usage intensif de son téléphone portable pour envoyer des textos, consulter des sites internet, visionner des vidéos ou encore utiliser des applications présenterait un danger pour notre nuque. Un mal baptisé “Text neck”. Si le danger que les ondes des téléphones portables représentent pour la santé fait l’objet d’un long débat qui n’a toujours pas trouvé d’issue, c’est un tout autre risque que révèlent aujourd’hui les professionnels de santé. L’usage intensif du téléphone portable pourrait abimer les muscles de notre nuque. D’après un chiropracteur britannique Raphael Lancaster qui s’est confié au journal The Telegraph, les patients seraient même de plus en plus nombreux à venir consulter des spécialistes parce qu’ils souffrent de ce mal baptisé “Text neck” (“neck” voulant dire “cou” en anglais).À lire aussiOwnFone, le téléphone simplifié au maximumEn fait, c’est la position que nous adoptons lorsque nous écrivons et lisons des textos ou encore lorsque nous visionnons des vidéos qui serait mauvaise pour notre cou. La tête penchée en avant, le regard dirigé vers le bas : maintenue pendant des périodes prolongées, cette posture mettrait les muscles du cou mais aussi ceux des épaules à rude épreuve, en les obligeant à soutenir notre tête qui pèse entre 4,5 et 5,5 kilos. Les symptômes seraient alors multiples : douleur dans la nuque et au niveau des épaules, maux de tête ou encore gêne dans les bras. A l’heure où l’utilisation des smartphones connait une croissance remarquable, les spécialistes ont ainsi tenu à alerter sur ce mal : si les utilisateurs ne font pas attention leur corps pourrait s’habituer à cette posture, et pire, celle-ci pourrait entraîner par la suite de sérieux problèmes de santé, rapporte 20 minutes.fr. Pour éviter ces désagréments, il est préconisé de tenir son téléphone à hauteur du visage, de faire des étirements et surtout de décrocher de temps en temps de son smartphone pour faire des pauses.  Le 12 octobre 2011 à 16:08 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
