MEET TORONTOS QUEEN OF THE DANCE FLOOR WHO CAUGHT DRAKES EYE

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Who’s that girl?For Andrea Bolley, it’s the question that indubitably swoops up and down the local party scene, particularly among novices.Seeing her dart through it — dressed in the long frock coats she favours, and a countenance that throbs with the guise of a latter-day Lauren Bacall — it’s clear, however, that she doesn’t exactly fit the dictionary definition of “girl.” Nor does it square when she casually drops mentions of long-gone hot spots, like Bemelmans and Prego. But, where the usual suspect can — and does — outplay all and any millennial comers? On the dance floor of life. Andrea Bolley poses with Drake at an exclusive pre-opening event held at the rap superstar’s new Toronto restaurant, Pick 6ix (Johnny Nunez/Getty Images for Remy Martin) Rug-cutting like no one else, she is the “secret sauce,” some might say, to shindigs, galas and launches in this town — a foil to the dreary, frozen-smiled socialites one routinely sees around, as well as the hashtag-mad, too-trite newer kids. Something that even Drake, yes, Drake! — Toronto’s unofficial mayor — noticed when he saw her dancing at a party, and since has made her part of his “squad,” one might say. It’s not every day that you see a white woman of a certain age pop into his social media stream, as was the case when he included her in an Instagram Story he posted a few months ago.“Who are you?” Bolley, somewhat shy off the dance floor, recalls Drake asking when she crossed paths with him at the opening of his restaurant Fring’s on King St. W. in 2015. She was making her moves, feeling the music, when he started taking a photo of her and then told her to come join him in his booth. “He was, like, c’mon up,” she continues, summing up the moment. “I said no. He said, ‘You have to!’ He took my purse and jacket. Asked me what I’m drinking. I said vodka and tonic. He said, ‘Same as me!’ Jada Pinkett Smith was there too.” Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitterlast_img read more

North American stock markets up as Trump exempts Canada from tariffs

first_imgTORONTO – Markets on both sides of the border saw moderate gains Thursday as U.S. President Donald Trump announced broad tariffs on steel and aluminum that exempted Canada and Mexico.The president signed proclamations slapping tariffs of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum that go into effect for the rest of the world in 15 days. Canada and Mexico are to be excluded from the tariffs for now but uncertainty remains on how firm that exemption is as NAFTA negotiations continue.Thursday’s positive finish in North American markets was preceded by mild swings throughout the day as investors waited to see the details and wider implications of the tariffs, said Anish Chopra, managing director with Portfolio Management Corp. in Toronto.“The markets are in a wait and see mode,” he said. “Is this the start of a trade war, or it just going to be small battles on different areas of trade as opposed to a full-scale trade war?”The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 66.09 points at 15,538.70, with the industrials and financials sectors offsetting losses in mining stocks.The April gold contract was down US$5.90 to US$1,321.70 an ounce and the May copper contract was down six cents to US$3.08 a pound.Energy also weighed on the commodity-heavy TSX, as oil prices saw sharp losses for a second day in a row after the U.S. Energy Department reported Wednesday that American oil production rose last week — a move that thwarts ongoing efforts by OPEC to tighten global supplies and support prices.The April crude contract was down US$1.03 to US$60.12 per barrel.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 93.85 points to 24,895.21. The S&P 500 index was up 12.17 points to 2,738.97 and the Nasdaq composite index was up 31.30 points to 7,427.95.Markets could see more movement Friday when the U.S. releases its latest job figures, said Chopra.“People are waiting for the jobs report tomorrow to see if there are any signs of inflation ticking up in the United States.”In currency markets, the Canadian dollar closed at an average trading value of 77.36 cents US, up 0.12 of a U.S. cent.Elsewhere in commodities, the April natural gas contract was down two cents at US$2.76 per mmBTU.last_img read more

GuineaBissau closer to political stability security – SecretaryGeneral

In his latest report on the country to the Security Council, released today, Mr. Ban commended its people for the “peaceful and well organized” presidential elections in June and July, where Malam Bacai Sanhá won a run-off round against Mohamed Yalá.But he noted that the record voter abstention rate points to the need for Guinea-Bissau’s political leaders to “foster dialogue and accountability towards their constituents, in order to reinforce democracy and regain the confidence of citizens.”The period under review was dominated by the tension that followed the assassinations of presidential candidate Baciro Dabó and the former defence minister Helder Proença in early June on the eve of the official launch of the electoral campaign.In March then president João Bernardo Vieira was also assassinated amid tensions between the Government and the military forces in a country marked by decades of civil conflicts, coups d’état and uprisings.The Secretary General urged the successful completion of the ongoing investigations into those political assassinations, which will “assist in combating impunity and will contribute to justice and national reconciliation.”“It will also improve the image of Guinea-Bissau and restore the confidence of the international community,” added Mr. Ban.He also pledged the support of the UN Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNOGBIS), which will be succeeded on 1 January 2010 by the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS). The new office will be responsible for, among others, strengthening the capacity of national institutions, supporting the establishment of efficient law enforcement and helping to mobilize international assistance. “There is a window of opportunity in Guinea-Bissau that must be seized,” added Mr. Ban, urging the country’s leaders to capitalize on the success of the elections and public optimism to also improve the country’s social and economic conditions.Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest countries, and over the past year the cost of rice and other cereals have soared by as much as 30 per cent.But the Secretary-General said there are also some encouraging signs, with stronger-than-expected sales of cashew nuts – the nation’s main export crop – ensuring that the forecast economic decline in Guinea-Bissau will not be as severe as anticipated. 29 October 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed cautious optimism over the progress of democracy in Guinea Bissau, where a series of political assassinations earlier this year threatened stability in the impoverished West African country. read more

Rates to jump amid growing financial losses at BCs public auto insurer

VANCOUVER — Insurance rates are going up for drivers in British Columbia and the province’s attorney general says the previous government is to blame.David Eby said the Insurance Corporation of B.C. is in crisis, with financial losses totalling more than $500 million last year.The insurance provider is asking the provincial utilities commission to hike basic rates by 6.4 per cent this year to combat the losses.Optional rates will also jump and Eby said Tuesday that the average driver can expect an annual blended increase of eight per cent or $130 per year.All vehicle owners in B.C. are required to purchase basic coverage through ICBC, but they can look to private insurers for optional extra coverage.The higher rates follow a recent report from Ernst & Young that said the Crown corporation’s finances were in serious trouble and rates would need to increase 30 per cent by 2019 to cover costs.Eby said the public auto insurer’s problems are due in part to the previous Liberal administration’s “cavalier and reckless” attitude toward the Crown corporation’s finances.“The former government knew years ago that issues at ICBC were spiralling rapidly out of control, yet they completely failed to look out for drivers and the road users of our province. We are paying for those short-sighted decisions today,” he said.But Andrew Wilkinson, the Liberal’s attorney general critic, said his party took steps to keep increases affordable and stable for families when ICBC’s claims surged, totalling $2.4 billion in payouts in 2015.“Instead of offering new ideas on how to control the cost issue, Eby is attempting to lay blame for the challenges ICBC is currently facing rather than provide his own plan,” Wilkinson said.Fixing the public auto insurer will be an ongoing project for “the next several years,” Eby said.First steps will include an audit of ICBC’s operations and a number of initiatives aimed at reducing collisions, including activating red-light cameras 24 hours a day and a public awareness campaign highlighting the dangers of distracted driving.“The way we identified these specific initiatives was to ensure we could, as quickly as possible, begin bending those cost curves by making B.C. roads safer, but also by identifying opportunities for savings within ICBC to get those costs down and, as a result, keep rates affordable for British Columbians,” Eby said.Eby wouldn’t guarantee that British Columbians won’t see rate hikes again next year, but promised that he has asked ICBC to look for ways of making the costs more fair.“It makes absolutely no sense to me that someone with a spotless driving record should be paying the same or a similar insurance rate as someone with a careless driving conviction. We need to make sure that bad drivers pay more and good drivers pay less,” he said. read more

Winter may be harsh blow to vulnerable children in Middle East UNICEF

“Without help, the cold could be yet another harsh blow to vulnerable children in the region who have already been through so much,” said Geert Cappelaere, the UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, in a news release Friday.“Children’s health is weak from undernutrition, poor healthcare and displacement. Hypothermia and respiratory infections are a serious threat – if left untreated, children will die.”Conflict, displacement and unemployment for years have already depleted families’ resources, leaving them unable to purchase of warm clothing or heating fuel.Furthermore, if schools are not kept warm, dropout rates are expected to rise, leaving children more vulnerable to early marriage, sexual violence or forced recruitment into fighting.Staff at the UN agency are working against time to provide warm clothing, winter supplies and blankets before the cold sets in, but the agency is staring at a $60 million (more than 80 per cent) funding shortfall for its $73 million appeal.The lack of resources could leave up to 1.5 million children across Iraq, Syria, the Occupied Palestinian Territory and neighbouring refugee host countries, exposed to the elements.With sufficient funding, UNICEF aims to provide winter clothing kits to over 800,000 children across the region, including to families that have been displaced by recent fighting; thermal blankets for almost 240,000 children; child friendly spaces and school heating for 105,000 children; and cash assistance to the families of more than 320,000 vulnerable children. read more

Women who regularly consume soft drinks may be reducing their chances of

first_imgThe finding, showed that reduced rates of pregnancy was most closely associated with consumption of soft drinks made with artificial sweeteners, as well as coffee with added artificial sweeteners.Meanwhile the use of sugar in soft drinks and coffee was associated with a poorer quality of egg, which can be a factor in likelihood of getting pregnant.Unsweetened coffee, however, had no effect on egg quality or pregnancy chances, said the researchers from the Federal University of Sao Paulo.Professor Adam Balen, Chairman of the British Fertility Society, said: “This is a very interesting study that suggests the false promise of artificial sweeteners that are found in soft drinks and added to drinks, such as coffee, may have a significant effect on the quality and fertility of woman’s eggs and this may further impact on the chances of conception.“These findings are highly significant to our population.“There should be more scrutiny of food additives and better information available to the public and, in particular, those wishing to conceive.”However, a spokesman for the British Dietetic Association said the study made no effort to distinguish the effect on fertility outcomes of the bodyweight of the women in the trail from the impact of artificial sweeteners and sugar in their diets.Professor Sir Colin Berry, Emeritus Professor of Pathology at Queen Mary University London, also cautioned about drawing inferences on wider reproductive outcomes from the experience of IVF patients. Other scientists, however, have said the lower pregnancy rates may have been driven by obesity, which is already a known negative factor, rather than the sugar or its synthetic equivalent per se.Artificial sweeteners, such as saccharin and sucralose, are chemical substances that many people choose over sugar because they are low-calorie or calorie-free.In the study, which will be presented today at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine congress in Salt Lake City, a batch of women who were undergoing IVF treatment were interviewed by nutritionists about the foods they consumed, as well soft and hot drinks.

Porn actor who filmed himself in threesome on busy Tube train fined

An adult performer who filmed himself and his former partner having a threesome on a Tube train in front of passengers has been fined £1,000.Porn actor George Mason, 35, and Nicholas Mullan, 24, were with a third man, who has not been identified, on a Northern Line train between Leicester Square and Waterloo.The incident happened in July 2017 but was not reported until February last year, when it was posted on Twitter.Mason, of John Ruskin Street, Southwark, south-east London, and Mullan, of Castlehume Gardens, Belfast, admitted outraging public decency at an earlier hearing.They were sentenced at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday after magistrates were shown stills from the video footage.Chairing the bench, Lucinda Lubbock said they had been “humiliated in the court of social media”, and added: “This was a very unpleasant and serious offence on the public Underground system. A caption described it as “100% genuine footage”, the court heard.Defending both men, Howard Cohen said the video was recorded 18 months earlier as the pair travelled back to Mason’s flat after a day out.He said they had been in a relationship for “some time” but were not together when the incident happened.”During the course of the journey, the idea came about that they would have sexual relations on the train,” Mr Cohen said.Mason “works in the adult film industry” and provided the footage to the Hung Young Brit website.He was then “required to upload a snippet of the material on a Twitter account” and used the “salacious” title to attract attention, Mr Cohen said.Both have been subject to a “virulent and quite disgusting campaign of hate” on social media since details of the incident emerged, he added. “The way it took place back in July, the seriousness of the offence, is exacerbated by the fact that it went on social media.”Fining Mason for his “more serious” role, she told him: “The uploading, the tagline and so on are very much part of your offence specifically.”He was also handed an 18-month community order and told to pay £170 in costs. George MasonCredit:Yui Mok/PA  George Mason Mullan, who is on benefits, was not fined but told to pay £170 costs and carry out a 12-month community order.Ms Lubbock added: “We feel that this is a lesson to both of you. As your defence lawyer said, you have been humiliated in the court of social media.”Recalling the events that led to the prosecution, Robert Simpson for The Crown said the police were called by a gay man who saw the footage online and thought it “crossed the line”.He said: “The two men in the dock engaged in various sexual acts on a Tube train…and this was in the presence of the travelling public.””The incident is recorded by them and the video of what happened was subsequently uploaded on to Twitter, where another gay man saw it, thought that had crossed the line of what was acceptable behaviour and the incident was reported to the police.”An investigation discovered the footage was posted to an account named “Hung Young Brit” linked to Mason.Mullan was traced after another clip linked to an escort website in Northern Ireland, where he shared his mobile number under the name Toby.Mr Simpson said the video was posted with the caption: “Full-on live sex in front of the general public on Tube train.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Mother of 5 at her wits end over abusive acid attacking

…says she made multiple Police reports but “they never take my words”A mother of five is at her wits’ end and calling on the local authorities for justice after allegedly enduring years of domestic abuse, threats to her life, and most recently rape and an acid attack by her 56-year-old ex-reputed husband at the “D” Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown home they shared.Lavern Newton45-year-old Lavern Newton spoke to INews on Thursday and explained that she had been in a relationship with her now ex-husband, for approximately 25 years. She said that for the past 10 years, however, they have separated temporarily on many occasions, but she would always return because of his alleged threats to end her life.Newton noted that after all the years of being abused, she made several reports against her ex at the Kitty Police Station, the Prashad Nagar Police Station, the Sparendaam Police Station, and most recently at the Sophia Police Station. However, the mother of five said that these reports have proved futile as no action has ever been taken against the accused.“Many times when I go mek the report, the police would call he, not to arrest he or nothing, but for him to come for me. I make a set a reports and nothing. They never take my words,” Newton told this online publication.On previous occasions, the man has been accused of lashing Newton across the face with a Guinness bottle and beating her with other weapons.The Sophia resident explained that the they have been separated for approximately three months now, but since then, her ex-husband would allegedly call often to leave threats or show up abruptly to have unconsented sex with her, in most cases, in front of her children.INews understands that Newton has three children –ages 12, eight and six- with the accused and two others –ages 27 and 16- from a previous relationship.The woman alleged that on Friday last, she was raped her in front of her 16-year-old and her ex attempted to repeat the act in the presence of her 27-year-old.“He rape me infront of my 16-year-old and then later in the night when my big son come home from work, he [son] lie down in the living room area and he [ex-husband] thought he sleeping and was going to rape me in front of my big son but I fight he off and…tek the hot water that I had on the stove, because I was going to make macaroni, and I throw the water on he,” Newton explained.This reportedly caused the 56-year-old man to leave the house again, but he reportedly continued to make phone calls to threaten the woman.Newton further told this publication that her most recent encounter with her ex was on Sunday last when he allegedly attempted to throw acid on her face.Newton displaying the damage the acid- which she said was meant for her face-caused to her legs“He went by the neighbour opposite by my house and when I went coming home from work, I see somebody running out the yard. When I realise is he, he throw the acid on me but I run, so it only catch the back of my foot them,” the mother of five said.When INews made contact with acting “C” Division Commander, Stephen Mansel he explained that he is aware that a report was made but he is in the process of briefing himself on the issue.

New FG junior minister says Quinn grants plan has been dealt with

first_imgIf people have a big income they shouldn’t get a grant and if they haven’t they should get a grant – that’s what the Government have decided so far as I understand.Speaking earlier on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Ruairí Quinn insisted that the idea was still on the table, but had yet to be discussed in detail by ministers. That idea has been dropped by Minister Quinn and it’s only fair that it be dropped. “The reality is that farm assets, if they were to be taken into account for assessing grants, that would be a very unfair way of assessment,” the minister said. We haven’t had the discussion in Cabinet yet on the introduction of a fairer system that would include some sort of capital assets test.He said that the scheme would take some time to get in place and that it was “always intended the plan be brought in for the academic year beginning September 2014″.Read: Coalition sees disagreements over student grants >Read: ‘I won’t take my eye off the ball’: Quinn promises better SUSI system > FINE GAEL’S NEWLY appointed junior minister for agriculture says a plan to means-test assets as part of the process for student grant applications has been dropped – in spite of Education Minister Ruairí Quinn’s assertion that it’s still on the coalition’s agenda.Minister Quinn – who is proposing that assets like property and shares worth over €750,000 should be included in the assessment process – insisted earlier today that his plan was ‘not dead’.Many Fine Gael backbench TDs have voiced opposition to the scheme since it was proposed by the minister, fearing it could lead to the children of low-income farming families missing out on the chance to go to college.Speaking just hours after his appointment as the new minister of state, Tom Hayes said on RTÉ’s News at One that the issue had been ‘dealt with’.last_img read more

ECCV launches new project

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Victorian multicultural organisations will be given strategic and practical support to improve their governance through a new project initiative launched by the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV).The Futures Project, funded by the Scanlon Foundation and in partnership with the Australian Multicultural Foundation and Leadership Victoria, will provide governance support for volunteer driven, ethno-specific and multicultural organisations.The project aims to provide a governance model through which multicultural communities will work together through their respective organisations, building and strengthening cross-cultural connections and relationships.“This project has been created to address an identified need for greater governance of ethnic and multicultural organisations; a need that ECCV recognises will continue to challenge the sector,” said ECCV chairperson Eddie Micallef. “Through forums, targeted support and ongoing mentoring, the project will provide a variety of long-lasting benefits to ethnic and multicultural organisations.“This includes providing a strengthened ethnic and multicultural community sector by improving organisational governance capacity.“The mentoring element of the project will assist ethnic and multicultural organisations who are finding it difficult to plan for the future and more recently established organisations that need support to enable them to thrive and grow,” he said.The Futures Project aims to provide a high level of information, resources and opportunities around governance which will work to build the confidence of ethnic and multicultural organisations to actively participate and contribute to the social, cultural and economic vibrancy of community life in Victoria. last_img read more

Quand les voiles des bateaux deviennent des sacs

first_imgQuand les voiles des bateaux deviennent des sacs Chaque année, environ 400.000 mètres de voiles sont jetées en France. Un immense gâchis contre lequel se bat la société 727 Sailbags qui, basée à Lorient, en récupère une partie pour les recycler et les transformer en sacs. Une idée qui remporte de plus en plus de succès auprès des consommateurs.Pas moins de 400.000 mètres carrés de voiles fabriquées avec des matières issues de la pétrochimie “sont jetées chaque année en France”, affirme Erwann Goullin, l’un des trois cofondateurs de société 727 Sailbags. Située à Lorient, cette jeune entreprise récupère environ 15.000 mètres carrés de voiles mises au rebut pour leur offrir une seconde vie en les recyclant en sacs.À lire aussiUn champignon pourrait aider à résoudre la guerre contre le plastique”On reprend une tradition de recyclage qui s’est interrompue au milieu du XXe siècle. Au musée de la marine par exemple, on peut voir un sac de matelot taillé dans les voiles d’un clipper de l’époque napoléonienne”, explique à l’AFP Jean-Baptiste Roger, second cofondateur de 727 Sailbags. Et cette redécouverte de la tradition du recyclage a le vent en poupe ces dernières années. Les sacs rencontrent en effet un grand succès, auprès des plaisanciers notamment. “La voile d’Optimist de votre gamin qui a terminé son championnat a autant d’âme que la voile de multicoque qui a fait une traversée”, souligne auprès de l’agence Christine Defretin, fondatrice d’une autre société de recyclage de voiles, Vent de Voyage, située à Saint-Malo. Cette entreprise produit chaque année 2.000 sacs, et connaît “une forte progression depuis deux ans”. La firme 727 Sailbags, elle, a vendu 7.000 sacs en 2011. Son chiffre d’affaires a fait un bond pour passer de 289.000 à 650.000 euros.”Contrairement à des objets de mode, on veut créer des choses qu’on garde longtemps”, souligne Christine Defretin qui décrit ces sacs en voiles recyclées comme des “produits coup de coeur” pour les consommateurs qui savent apprécier le “savoir-faire” de ceux qui les fabriquent.Le 4 février 2012 à 12:23 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Theres a Total Solar Eclipse on the Way in 2017

first_img NASA Wins 2 Emmys for Mars Mission, SpaceX Dragon Flight ProgrammingNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Once upon a time, you were falling in love. Now you’re only falling apart. There’s nothing you can do. There’s going to be a total solar eclipse in 2017, but not of the heart. Of the sun. Because, you know, it’s a solar eclipse.NASA has even set up a countdown until the massive eclipse event occurs, since this such a huge deal. Finally, we’ll have one in the United States in 2017 which is a pretty significant sight. It’ll al go down on August 21, 2017, when the moon will totally block out the sun, and we’ll all be left in shimmering darkness for a few strange moments. This hasn’t occurred since 1979, so it’s no wonder everyone is getting all up in arms about it. Just make sure you’re not looking directly at it.Of course, seeing it at all might be an issue. You’ll have to make sure you’re at the best vantage point possible to see it at its moment of totality, or when the sun is completely blocked by the moon. If you’re not in its path or somewhere with a clear enough viewpoint to the eclipse, you might want to plan on getting there. This might include moving to a more westward location or simply going to a place where there’s less light pollution. And bring some comfy seats and eye protection. You know, stuff you talked about doing in school when you were younger but never really got around to doing.These kinds of events don’t come often, so if you’ve already got plans that day, see if you can’t squeeze a quick viewing in somehow. Things like this are pretty interesting in the cosmic, grand scheme of things, and you might be a little disappointed if you miss it.

The smokehouse provides a one-page menu that offers a wide range of flavors.What I tried: To start, my dining companion and I had the Truffle Mac and ceviche. For our entrees, we shared the spaghetti and meatballs and the Brisket Platter. For dessert, we tried the hot apple crisp a la mode and a fresh berry cobbler, which combined several berry varieties.The Truffle Mac is housemade. It was neither soupy nor dry. The cheese was not quite saucy and yet it was not stringy, either. It was more of a coating for the macaroni with that almost grainy texture that some cheese takes on when it is melted. The truffle oil was not overused and the dish was topped with housemade bread crumbs. We found the Truffle Mac very appetizing, not too rich and well-placed among the starter options.The ceviche contains wild shrimp that is marinated in freshly squeezed lime juice. It starts with guacamole on the bottom, topped by pico de gallo, and then the shrimp. Fresh sliced avocado adorns the top. It is served with tortilla chips. I found that the generous amount of lime juice distinguished it from other ceviche I have tried. It had a refreshing, summery quality.Spaghetti and meatballs is served with a couple of garlic toasts. The ratio of pasta to the pleasantly seasoned meatballs was just perfect. We enjoyed both together without a bunch of pasta left over. A light amount of sweet tomato sauce brought the essence of Italian cuisine to the dish. Not bad at all for a smokehouse!last_img read more

AC Milan female star believes in the growth of womens football

first_imgFor Valentina Giacinti, the Italian women’s football is growing especially thanks to professional men’s clubs taking part in it.It was 20 years ago since Italy played in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.Since then, the sport is slowly developing in the country, especially thanks to the work of the Lega Serie A clubs who are founding and giving women’s teams great support.“It’s very important to have professional clubs because they allow us to train every day, which was something that didn’t happen before,” said Valentina Giacinti, who plays for AC Milan and the Italy national team, to FIFA.com“We can now use things like the physios, doctors and training fields, and we can train in the mornings rather than evenings, which helps with recovery. So I think it has helped achieve a quantum leap in Italy.”“Yes, it’s true that we have not qualified for a World Cup for many years and to be frank, I have no idea what it’s like to play in a World Championship because I was five when we qualified last time,” she added.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“However, it’s a great feeling and we can’t believe what we have achieved. There is a lot of expectation and enthusiasm and we look forward to playing in France.”She continued: “Many people started to follow us and see our games and training sessions. Training at the latest camp almost had to come second for one session because we had a lot of journalists coming to interview us and a lot of fans wanting photographs. That was very important for us and an important element for getting people interested.”“It means everything to do well this summer, because if we do well at this World Cup, more and more people will end up watching us, and the next time we will have even more people supporting and following us.”Highlights #RomaMilan 1-2 #ForzaRagazze pic.twitter.com/IiB7Ten4en— AC Milan Women/Femminile (@ac_women) December 1, 2018last_img read more

Atletico Madrid humbles Real Madrid at preseason friendly

first_imgWith a brutal 7-3 victory, Atletico Madrid humiliated Real Madrid in the first derby of the season. Costa and Felix were spectacular.The official season hasn’t started and Real Madrid already got a humbling 7-3 defeat against Atletico Madrid on Friday.The Colchoneros enjoyed an incredibly fruitful evening against a Los Blancos squad that is still very much under construction.Perhaps the internal problems that are going on between the manager and the president are a sign of what’s happening, but Real Madrid is starting off the season on the wrong foot.It’s not just a terrible result, Los Blancos are also suffering terribly luck with many players who are getting injured.Marco Asensio suffered a nasty knee injury against Arsenal during the week, we can now add Luka Jovic suffering another apparently serious injury against Atletico today.The game started with a Diego Costa goal, the Brazilian player started the pre-season today and his training really paid off with this performance.The striker received an assist from Joao Felix, a kid who proved that all the fuzz about him was correct.There are three players who offered incredible performance today for Atletico Madrid, we already mentioned the first two and Saul also played a fantastic game.However, Felix was the most important player of this victory for the Colchoneros.Valió la pena quedarse despierto para ver el baño del Atlético al Real Madrid (3-7). Joao Felix, señores. A las 11:00, turno para el Barça pic.twitter.com/rAgFt6GKi5— Albert Rogé (@albert_roge) July 27, 2019Immediately after the first goal, Felix himself scored the second after Saul recovered a ball from the very distracted Real Madrid defensive line.Not even ten minutes were passed and Real Madrid was already losing 2-0, but this was only the beginning.Angel Correa had to replace an injured Alvaro Morata, which was one of the few bad news that Atletico Madrid had this evening.The Argentine forward came in to score his own goal early in the first half, he got it after an assist from Koke.Diego Costa got to score the fourth after another ball was recovered by Saul, the Real Madrid defense kept proving they were incredibly distracted this evening.Apart from the shameful defeat that was being handed to them, Real Madrid suffered a new blow right after the first half-hour of the game.Striker Luka Jovic moved inside the box to strike a quick cross from the right and his leg got stuck on Jan Oblak’s behind, it appears he got seriously injured in his knee or ankle.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…The Serbian player had to leave the pitch with a 4-0 defeat in the scoreboard. Diego Costa scored his hat-trick just before half time, he got it through a penalty shot after he was taken down inside the box.The match was already 5-0 in Atletico Madrid’s favor, and the second half hadn’t even started yet.Atlético de Madrid remató ¡¡23 VECES!! contra el Real Madrid. Y 13 de esos 23 disparos fueron al arco (fallaron muchas ocasiones clarísimas). Zinedine Zidane debe salir aliviado porque, al final, solo fueron 7 anotaciones las que recibieron. PASEO. pic.twitter.com/gY6D64tKM8— Invictos (@InvictosSomos) July 27, 2019After the break, Atletico maintained the same level of performance before making several modifications at the same time.Joao Felix had a little more time to assist Diego Costa on his fourth goal with a beautiful pass between the lines, the striker dinked the ball over Keylor Navas’ head.Zidane somehow thought that taking Courtois out of the match during half-time would help Real Madrid get back in the game.This was already a disaster for Los Blancos, Nacho’s goal during the 60th minute of the match didn’t help his squad one bit.Vitolo even scored a seventh goal not too long after that, not even Benzema and Javi Hernandez’s late goals helped the cause for Real Madrid.This was one of the biggest defeats in the club’s history, regardless if it was a friendly match or not.The image Real Madrid gave this evening was truly unexpected, they need to improve in several fronts and their injury count is beginning to turn alarming.Jovic was out today but we can’t forget Mendy and Asensio also fell injured.This is not a great day to be a Real Madrid fan, and it’s a perfect day to be an Atletico Madrid supporter.FINALEl Atlético de Madrid le propinó una contundente goleada de 7-3 al Real Madrid en la #ICC2019.LIKE y RT si te gusta este resultado. pic.twitter.com/Q0EkzPmQTn— FOX Deportes (@FOXDeportes) July 27, 2019What did you think about Real Madrid’s defeat against Atletico?
