Update on the latest sports

first_imgThe draft had been scheduled for June 26-27, but it was postponed with the season in an indefinite suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now the NHL is deciding whether to hold it earlier in June following the NFL’s success with its virtual draft last month.Such a move means teams would not be able to trade players before or during the draft, there would be a lack of clarity over next year’s salary cap and the draft order could be determined before all games are played. There are mixed feelings about the idea among executives.In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic:— The end of this virus-disrupted school year has produced a bleak financial outlook for major college sports. Budget projections are landing in the red. West Virginia has announced a $5 million projected shortfall for the fiscal year ending June 30. The athletic director will take a 10% salary reduction for the next budget cycle along with other high earners in the department. Minnesota has forecast a $4 million deficit for the current fiscal period. The month before the pandemic hit, a $1 million surplus was projected. Now, the school says all cost-savings measures are on the table.— Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, football coach Paul Chryst and men’s basketball coach Greg Gard are being asked to take a 15% pay cut over the next six months as part of the school’s response to the pandemic. School officials say Alvarez, Chryst and Gard are among 25 of the athletic department’s highest-earning employees who are being asked to take that voluntary cut. There will be no reduction in that group’s work hours. Update on the latest sports Associated Press — One of the fighters scheduled to take part in Saturday’s UFC mixed martial arts event in Jacksonville, Florida, has tested positive for the COVID-19. UFC says Jacaré Souza’s middleweight bout against Uriah Hall has been called off after Souza tested positive, along with his two cornermen. UFC says all three men have left the host hotel and will be self-isolating off premises, where UFC’s medical team will monitor their conditions remotely. The UFC is returning after an involuntary eight-week break that upended plans by UFC President Dana White to keep fighting amid the coronavirus outbreak.— Watford chairman Scott Duxbury says at least six of the 20 English Premier League clubs are concerned about the plan to use neutral stadiums to finish the season. The Hornets have joined Brighton and Aston Villa in making clear their opposition to the current “Project Restart” concept ahead of Monday’s crunch meeting of topflight clubs. Teams at or near the relegation zone are worried about the monetary and competitive impact of playing the remainder of the season at neutral grounds without fans. “Project Restart” needs approval from at least 14 teams.— Two players at German second division side Dynamo Dresden have tested positive for the coronavirus, putting on hold the club’s planned return to soccer next weekend. Dresden was to play Hannover away on May 17 when the league resumes after a two-month suspension.

BCB expresses disappointment over Subrina Munroe’s snub

first_imgTHE Berbice Cricket Board ( BCB) and the entire cricketing public in the Ancient County have expressed their disappointment over the non-selection of West Indies pacer Subrina Munroe in the 14-member National female senior squad for the upcoming Regional tournaments.According to the BCB, Munroe’s snub, is nothing but a total injustice to a dedicated, discipline and hard working player, whose professional attitude can never be questioned.President of the BCB Hilbert Foster expressed his disgust at the non-selection of Munroe. He stated that some of the players selected ahead of the West Indies pacer will struggle to make both the Rose Hall Town Metro and Berbice Female team if they reside in Berbice.Munroe has always performed well for Guyana and the West Indies and to downgrade her to standby status is a total insult. The selectors of the Guyana Cricket Board need to get their house in order and select national teams based on performances, discipline and fairness, not on a quota system for each county or reward for clubs or boards who they view as supporters of the current system.Munroe along with Tremayne Smartt and Erva Giddings have served Guyana well.Meanwhile, the BCB will like to wish the Guyana team under the leadership of Shemaine Campbelle, great success in the tournament.The board is quite confident that Campbelle, Sheneta Grimmond, Shabika Gajnabi, Erva Giddings, Tremayne Smartt, Melanie Henry, Plaffiana Millington and Lafona Gilgeous will make all of us in Berbice proud. It is however, very painful for us to be denied the opportunity to witness our players in action in the Ancient county despite Berbice being the major provider of outstanding female cricketers.last_img read more

WWE superstar Becky Lynch on unique WrestleMania 36, her year as ‘RAW’ women’s champion

first_imgBL: I’ve done a lot of work with the Special Olympics over the last few years. It’s one of my favorite things to do. The energy that those athletes have and the love and the work ethic that they have is just incredible. So when the opportunity presented itself, at-home workouts that these athletes could do, there’s really never been a better time to do that than right now. So, I was delighted to jump on board.SN: I know everybody has had to make adjustments with any upcoming plans due to what we’re going through right now and now everybody basically staying at home. Has this affected your wedding plans? (Lynch is engaged to fellow WWE superstar Seth Rollins.)BL: Yeah, but like everything you adjust and you move forward. At the end of the day, as long as we have our health and as long as we have the people that we love and care about, that’s the main thing. Almost a year ago, Becky Lynch headlined WrestleMania 35 where she defeated both Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win both the “RAW” and “SmackDown” women’s championships. Fast-forward to now and Lynch is still representing the red brand as its champion.MORE: Everything you need to know about WrestleMania 36This past year has seen Lynch become one of the top stars in all of WWE with braggadocious ways continuing to draw huge fan support. At WrestleMania 36, she will defend her “RAW” women’s championship against former MMA fighter and NXT champion Shayna Baszler in what will be quite a memorable setting.Sporting News recently spoke with Lynch as she talked about performing in front of no fans, training while having to stay at home, her year as champion, and what she sees in her WrestleMania 36 opponent.The #Raw #WomensTitle is ON THE LINE at #WrestleMania when #TheMan @BeckyLynchWWE defends against @QoSBaszler !— WWE WrestleMania (@WrestleMania) March 17, 2020SPORTING NEWS: We know that these are unique circumstances that we’re all living in right now. You’re always an upbeat person. What have you been able to do to keep yourself upbeat and positive?BECKY LYNCH: I am privileged enough that I still get to go, whether there are crowds or not, go out there and perform for people at home watching and hopefully give them a little bit of a break. And also, really just things that you don’t really get the time to do a lot of the time, like catching up on movies and documentaries and changing your workouts a little bit. It makes you a little bit more creative. And then cooking. I love cooking and I’m never at home to cook.SN: What’s your go-to dish at home for cooking?BL: It depends, right? If I’m in a hurry, then I make a Shepherd’s pie but I don’t eat meat so I make it with corn which is a meat substitute and then I use cauliflower mashed potatoes. I made that last night. Maybe it tastes like a little bit of home. I do lasagna, too.SN:  You said that you get have to get creative when it comes to your workouts. What have you been able to do to keep in shape especially if you don’t have access to a gym?BL: A million squats. So many squats and burpees. I have equipment so I did a good 10 rounds of 10 burpees, 10 upswings, 10 sit-ups and 10 goblet squats followed by 300 bodyweight squats, 200 bodyweight lunges, and 100 sit-ups. That was a good workout. I hurt for a couple of days after that. And stuff like running, just getting some fresh air.SN: How have you been able to wrap your arms around performing under the circumstances right now? It’s obviously different than anything that anybody is used to.BL: It’s very different, right? It’s all about adaption and I wouldn’t be where I am in my career if I wasn’t about to adapt to that and know when to shift when the time is right. So I think that you just have to go into a different mode, you have to realize that you’re not going to get the same feedback. It feels so good when we have the crowd responding. But to know that, OK, you’re not going to get that feedback. You have to tell them a story. The people that are watching at home, the millions of people that are watching at home, you have to tell them a story. You have to give them a reason to care. You have to give them a reason to think about something else for a little bit whether it’s an hour or three hours or whatever it is. Then you just figure out how can I do this the best and that’s all this ever is for me: how can I do this the best.SN: Do you have to think about a little bit more when you’re in the ring? You feed off the crowd so much like so many of your peers but you don’t have that crowd. Is it something you think about a little bit more while you’re out there right now?BL: Yeah, it is. That is the thing — I’ve always been somebody who fed off that energy and connected to the crowd. Now, they’re just not there to let you know that you’re connected to them. It really is just remembering that there are millions of people watching at home and that you are reaching them but now in a different way. So now, little details are even more important than they ever were.Low-key Lynch. #GOAT— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) March 3, 2020SN: There are plenty of stories that everybody has about wrestling in front of just a couple of people early in their careers. Does this take you back to those early days?BL: Oh, yeah. I remember wrestling in front of seven people, if even. And with Irish people, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but they’re not really shy, right? They’re usually quick-witted with comebacks from things where you can hear all of them when they’re in the crowd.  Sometimes just a few people is worse than nobody. I’ve already been through, to wrestling in front of next to nobody. WrestleMania will be the first time that I wrestle in front of nobody in terms of a WWE audience. I’ll just be bringing that energy, bringing that intensity. And I don’t want to lose my championship. I want to go on over here. I want to be over here being a champion. I want to retire with this thing.SN: Has it really hit that had this huge WrestleMania moment last year and now you’re going to have the championship for coming up on a year here?BL: Yeah. I’ve had a little time to think about it. It’s pretty crazy and it brings its own challenges. And because of that, because I’ve had it for a year, I’ve been nonstop going for a year, over a year. So, it really was a case of constantly going and constantly being on the go and now and I’ve finally gotten the chance to reflect on the past year and reflect on what I want for the future, the next year, which is pretty cool.SN: People can have a big moment at WrestleMania but then it’s what you do next. What has been the key for you to stay fresh and remain successful since last year’s WrestleMania?BL: Always adapting. Always adapt and always trying to change and take chances. Take risks and sometimes they don’t work, sometimes you might fall flat on your face but you got to keep trying and I think that’s the most important thing. Be willing to go out there and be willing to change and be willing to try things even if they don’t work.SN: You’re facing Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania. You’ve seen her coming for a while with her work in NXT and more recently on “RAW.” What has stood out in your mind in what you have seen from her?BL: She’s a technician. She’s as good as anybody I’ve ever seen so it can be tricky trying to lock on that armbar. But, you know, I’m always looking for alternative ways. She’s powerful. She’s strong. She’s intense, she’s dominant like we saw at Elimination Chamber. She’s unlike anybody I’ve faced in the last year.I see everything.— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) March 18, 2020SN: Does she remind you of yourself from the standpoint of the intensity that she brings?BL: Yeah, I can see the comparison. She’s not the most spectacular in her move set but she’s gritty and I can relate to that. I can also relate to maybe being in somebody else’s shadow, you know, and maybe not always being the one who got the spotlight and wanting to prove something. I think we can see that through Shayna and we saw that for me. It worked out pretty well for me so it can work out pretty well for Shayna. But I’m not the person she’s going to make a name off of.SN: You’re teaming up with the Special Olympics to create a fitness video series called School of Strength . Tell me a little bit about that and how that came together. WrestleMania 36 will be one of the most unique events in WWE history. The coronavirus pandemic forced the company to move the annual extravaganza from Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium to its WWE Performance Center in Orlando along with several closed-set locations. And there will be no fans in attendance for any of the matches.WWE made the decision to split the show into two nights as it air on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 on the WWE Network and on pay-per-view.last_img read more

AH Reorganization Brings Major Surprise

first_imgBy Muriel J. SmithATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno swore in Councilmen Jack Archibald and Peter Doyle to three-year terms on the governing body, but left the meeting immediately following the swearing in to participate in a second reorganization in Shrewsbury. Before apologizing for her hasty retreat from the session, the lieutenant governor spoke briefly on elected officials’ obligation to “do what the people want, not what we as public officials want.”However, the exit of both the lieutenant governor and Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, who also attended the borough’s reorganization meeting, came minutes before Councilman Lou Fligor moved that Councilman Roy Dellosso be named council president. In the absence of higher officials, Mayor Fred Rast swore Dellosso into the position, over the negative votes of both Doyle and Archibald.The move was unusual for both Rast and Fligor, since Dellosso is a Democrat, one of two, with Bob Sutton, on the GOP-controlled governing body. Traditionally and politically, a governing body selects one from its own party to serve in the absence of the mayor. Republicans Jake Hoffman and Fligor voted with Democrats Dellosso and Bob Sutton to move Dellosso into the top seat on council.Fligor declined any comment on his vote for a Democrat for the council president position, but Rast told The Two River Times after the meeting that he endorsed the governing body’s majority vote for the Democrat because “he’s a good man, he’s been on the council the entire time I’ve been mayor, and I think he deserves it.”Peter Doyle is sworn in by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.–Courtesy Joseph BarbieriDellosso said he was not surprised by the council or mayor’s actions, because “the mayor’s always been about bi-partisanship, and he knows I’ll do my best.” The councilman added that he feels he will be excellent in the position, since he is actively involved in the community and enjoys helping borough residents.More uncertainty about Rast’s dedication to the Republican party that first help elect him to office seven years ago came during the mayor’s annual address to the public at the end of the meeting. He indicated he will not seek another term when his expires this year, but has a candidate in mind. Council makeup this year is no different from every other year since Rast became mayor, with the same elected officials that first served with him in 2008 still on the governing body. Doyle gained his fourth term this year, Archibald his seventh.That a split in the Republican party in this close-knit community is developing was further evidenced when Rast failed to reappoint Archibald to the Harbor Commission, replacing him with Fligor, who will continue in that position with Hoffmann, who was renamed. When asked about that change, Rast indicated he has not been pleased with some of the activities at the harbor and feels Fligor will be able to resolve some issues, but he did not elaborate on what concerns he has.In responding to questions about how he feels in not being reappointed to a third year on commission, Archibald said he’s very disappointed in not being able to continue. “I’ve enjoyed all of my time there, and I believe I have made contributions to the commission that have been beneficial both to the harbor operations and to the taxpayers and businesses of our community.” He added that he is further disappointed that he was not consulted about a replacement for himself, nor asked about any ongoing programs or activities on which the new commission member will need to be brought up to speed.There were few changes in the other mayoral or council appointments, with Bernard Reilly continuing as borough attorney, Christine Hanlon as chief municipal prosecutor, Hank Wolfe as public defender, and Richard Rast as code enforcement officer.  Andrew J. Sabine of the Fallon and Larsen firm will continue as municipal auditor.Rene Frotton, who has served in both Marlboro and Loch Arbor was named tax assessor as Eldo Magnani retired from the position Dec. 31.    The Two River Times was continued as an official newspaper.In his annual address, Rast quoted from the address he gave at his first reorganization in 2008, and noted that many of the same national problems that existed then continue to exist today. “The radicals of the ‘60s have now grown and are elected officials today,” he said, but added that in Atlantic Highlands, “we have remained unchanged by radical 1960s…we respect each together, we work together, we raise our families together…the intermarriages strengthen our community…the police and fireman is role models and we all work together.”Rast added that proof of how the community works well together is the number of accomplishments that have been achieved, in spite of earthquakes, Super Storm Sandy, hurricanes, floods, landslides, and unusual snowfalls which have impacted the borough and the county over the past seven years.last_img read more

Windies steering towards defeat at end of day 4

first_imgWest Indies will have to produce a Herculean batting effort on tomorrow’s final day if they are to get a result from the ongoing first Brighto Paints-Q Mobile Test against Pakistan at Sabina Park. The Jason Holder-captained regional side, trailing by 121 runs of first innings after Pakistan scored 407 in their first innings in reply to their 286, reached a precarious 93 for four at the end of today’s fourth and penultimate day. This means that they are still 28 runs behind with most of their top order batsmen already in the pavilion. Openers Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieron Powell, who put on 22 for the first wicket, were dismissed for 14 and 49, respectively, while Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope could only manage 20 and six. Night watch batsman, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, and one of two remaining specialist batsmen, debutant Vishual Singh, are the not out batsmen. Both are yet to get off the mark. The other specialist batsman remaining is Roston Chase. Leading the charge for Pakistan is Yasir Shah, who in nine overs telling leg-spin, has taken all the wickets to fall. He has impressive figures of four for 33.  Earlier, the West Indies were parried in the field by bowling efforts from their new-ball opening pair of fast bowlers, Alzarri Joseph and Shannon Gabriel. Joseph claimed three for 71 and Gabriel three for 92. Pakistan, in the meantime, were spearheaded to their total by captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who after being dropped twice, went on to post an unbeaten 99 not out. Play is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 9:30 am.last_img read more

River-Gee defeated Bong 3-0 to secure its place.In the Montserrado versus Sinoe’s game, lawmaker Saah Joseph played a much instructive role as he led series of goal-bound attacks against their opponents. His role was so inspiring that fans began to cheer for him whenever he came close to scoring.However, he was tightly matched by Sinoe’s defenders and it was through the penalty kicks that the lawmaker made certain victory for his side was a foregone conclusion, scoring one of the goals.Fans expect lawmaker Joseph to lead his side against River-Gee on Wednesday, June 11 against Tony Gain and Jimmy Doyan who scored in their 3-0 victory Bong County.The competition kicked off early last month with teams representing 15 sub-divisions of the Republic of Liberia.Montserrado County Players: Alex Flomo, Joseph Kobo, Luseni Kromah, Abraham Barry, Garlo Francis and Yaya Kromah, Saah Joseph, Samuel Thompson, Peter Samuel, Saytus Myers, and Edward Dean.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Parent-teen group offers help for free

first_imgLANCASTER – Action, a free nonprofit parent and teen support group with programs, is expanding to the Antelope Valley. Meetings for parents and kids who are headed for trouble are being held at 7p.m. Thursday in the courtyard complex at Antelope Valley Principal’s Administrative Unit campus, 43423 Division St., Suite 104, Lancaster. Information is available by calling (661) 297-4660. Among the issues tackled each week are teen anger, defiance and rebellion, truancy, gang involvement and drug and alcohol abuse. The methods include teaching parents to set limits and using positive peer support. Action founder Cary Quashen, a counselor for high risk teenagers and a certified addiction specialist, said many families find themselves in stormy situations when a teen goes through tough times, and problems develop. Action offers programs in Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, Glendale and Thousand Oaks. “Parents are easily caught up in the storm of emotion surrounding their teen’s behaviors,” Quashen said. “They expend energy in head-butting contests, parent/teacher conferences, court dates, sleepless nights and endless days of arguments, until they are ready to drop from exhaustion, stress, despair, depression, and the hopelessness of their situation.” Action support groups help parents and their kids manage the conflicts before they escalate. “Support groups for parents of unruly teens are full of moms and dads who are currently going through the same problems and can empathize,” said Stephanie Weiss, a parent who attended meetings for nearly six years and now works as a parent group facilitator. “Support groups allow you to vent, feel validated and encouraged, learn and problem-solve, socialize and help others, as well as build and keep realistic hope for the future.” A good support group also will help parents determine what works and doesn’t in managing their teenagers. Action bills itself as a safe place for parents to talk, cry, laugh and discuss teen behavior with others who offer practical solutions that work. While parents meet in one room, teens have their own group sessions. The program also has a 24-hour crisis line, 1-800-FOR TEEN. Weiss said her own teenager’s problems drew her to the program, where she worked with 40 other parents to cope. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Everton boss Martinez eyeing shock raid on Galatasaray

first_img Goran Pandev 1 Everton boss Roberto Martinez is planning a surprise swoop for Galatasaray forward Goran Pandev in the January transfer window.The Toffees are tracking the Macedonian, 31, after reports in Turkey revealed he is available to go out on loan next month.According to Turkish newspaper Fanatik, the former Lazio and Inter player, who can also operate on either flank, wants to leave the Turk Telekom Arena – despite only signing for the club last summer.Pandev has registered only five appearances this season and Toffees chief Martinez sees his experience, particularly in European competition as a Champions League winner, as an attribute which would boost his squad in the Europa League.Pandev’s wage demands could prove to be a stumbling block but Everton might be prepared to gamble on the player if he can come to Goodison Park and kickstart the club’s inconsistent season.last_img read more

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said the tapes from inside Anglo Irish Bank, published today in the Irish Independent, reveal a concerted effort by executives in Anglo Irish Bank to defraud the Irish State.The tapes have been put online at as part of an investigation by reporter Paul Williams.Deputy Doherty said the fact that both of the executives continued to work in IBRC on a huge salary, one of them right up to February of this year, is an indictment on this government and called for prosecutions for people involved in the collapse of the Irish economy. He said: “These revelations are shocking to the core. They reveal a concerted effort by executives in Anglo Irish to defraud the Irish State.“They prove conclusively that an investigation is needed into events surrounding the bank guarantee and subsequently and that people must be prosecuted for their roles in collapsing the Irish economy.“Here we have a situation in which two senior executives laughed and joked about their attempts to defraud the state of billions of euros.“Their actions have led to austerity, job losses and hardship across the state. “I revealed in 2011 that 22 of the top 50 Anglo executives were still in place in the bank on huge salaries, 19 of them earning more than 175k per annum.“Alarmingly, John Bowe continued to work for Anglo/IBRC right up to last year and Peter Fitzgerald only left in February of this year. That is an indictment on this government.“How did this man pass any fitness and probity tests by the central bank?“The government’s foot dragging on the banking inquiry is unacceptable. Like the last government, Fine Gael and Labour are taking a hands-off approach to the banks while they pay their executives over the top salaries, increase their interest rates at will and seek increased powers to repossess homes from struggling mortgage holders.” ANGLO-GATE: PEARSE DOHERTY SAYS NEWSPAPER INVESTIGATION SHOWS HOW BANK DEFRAUDED THE COUNTRY was last modified: June 24th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ANGLO-GATE: PEARSE DOHERTY SAYS NEWSPAPER INVESTIGATION SHOWS HOW BANK DEFRAUDED THE COUNTRYlast_img read more



first_imgMAVERICKS COLUMN: Following on from the last column on “talking to your barber”, although men primarily come in to Mavericks to get their hair cut, a hot towel shave or a beard trim, we are often asked by our customers for advice on their skin.So to help out the men of Donegal Daily, we have compiled a basic Q&A on skin care for men. How does men’s skin differ from that of women?Men’s skin tends to be both thicker and oilier. This extra lubrication is essential for beard growth and helps to counterbalance the ravages of time, protecting the skin and acting as a natural wrinkle-reducer. Despite the benefits, having excess skin oil does have a downside – when the oil combines with dirt and dead cells, it can clog the pores causing spots.What happens to the skin as men age?Skin changes dramatically as you age. During puberty, when a man’s hormones are kicking into high gear, the body produces more sebum (oil). However, as men get older, oil production in the skin reduces and moisturisers with age-defying ingredients are needed to nourish, hydrate and help combat the skin’s aging process. The sun…friend or foe?While sunshine may lift your spirits the odd time we get it around the hills of Donegal, it does nothing but harm the skin. Exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays is one of the leading causes of premature skin aging and also puts you at greater risk of developing skin cancer. Dermatologists suggest that, regardless of skin type, a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 is essential for year-round use.What is exfoliation and why do I need to do it?Skin produces cells that continually renew themselves. Exfoliation helps rid the skin of the dead cells that build up on its surface. Scrubs containing granules gently buff away impurities and dead surface cells, stimulating skin renewal and revitalising the complexion without any redness or flaking.What products should I use for shaving?When wet shaving, a lot of men try to cut corners and use cheap aerosol shaving foams and gels. The vast majority of these products contain additional chemicals that irritate the skin as opposed to soothing it. To create their texture, they are also heavily aerated, creating insufficient lubrication between the razor and skin. The best products to use are shaving oils or, better again, are the old fashioned shaving soaps or creams. Prorasso has a range of shaving soaps and creams which are second to none. When used correctly they result in the smoothest shave achievable. We use the Prorasso range ourselves for the hot towel shave and it is also available to buy in Mavericks. Anyone who has tried it, hasn’t looked back. Under eye cream: Is it for men?Check out any photo of yourself that’s at least five years old and you’ll no doubt see far more significant changes in the eye area than in any other area of your face. The skin under the eye is extremely delicate, and as you age, it gets thinner, making it extremely susceptible to wrinkles. It’s especially important to feed the vulnerable under-eye area with a nutrient-packed, super-hydrating, under-eye cream. Start today – even if you’re only in your twenties – for results you can see like fine lines beginning to diminish.I hope this helps and gives you an insight on how to slow down the clock.For any more advice on skin care for men just contact us on our Facebook page or call into Mavericks Traditional Barbershop, Lower Main Street, Letterkenny.

Player misjudges massive drop when leaping over barrier to celebrate

first_img 1 E questo? Come diavolo fate a non amare l’Europa League, ditemelo che proprio non riesco a capacitarmene #europaleague— Paolo Vigo (@Pagolo) September 20, 2018After tucking away a penalty, he rushed off towards the away fans, leaped over the initial hoardings before running and jumping over a concrete blockade separating supporters from the pitch.He just didn’t see the big drop on the other side.The player disappeared from sight in front of shocked fans and team-mates before being hauled back to pitch level and carrying on with the game. Fortunately Benjamin Kololli, left, was okay after his fall That’s nothing, though, compared to the horror injury former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman recently told talkSPORT about.“I had a little tackle with Lee Chapman when I was playing for Arsenal at Elland Road. It was a 50/50, I went down at his feet and his studs, which started just above my knee, went straight up to my meant and veg.“I was lying down and [Gordon] Strachan was standing over me saying ‘get up you southern softie’ and I thought ‘hang on, I’m northern’. Anyway, he was giving me a load of stick and when the physio came on, he saw the blood and went: ‘oh, sorry, big man.’“What had happened was that I had actually punctured my two veg, went off at half-time, got stitched back up and went out for the second half. That was back in the day.”center_img 🤢 “I’d PUNCTURED my two veg…😳 …but had it sewn up at half-time and went back out!”🗣️ @TheDavidSeaman leaves every male listener wincing with this story about a tackle… on his tackle! 😱— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) September 19, 2018 Often when falling over celebrating wildly in Cyprus, it has something to do with alcohol.For FC Zurich player, Benjamin Kololli, whose goal sealed a 1-0 Europa League win at AEK Larnaca, it wasn’t related to booze despite being a short drive from Ayia Napa.last_img read more
