Neymar recollects the five-word message Messi gave him upon Barcelona arrival

Posted on

first_imgAdvertisementNeymar got emotional as he recollected the welcome Lionel Messi gave him during his first days at Barcelona.“It’s a story I tell everyone. At the time when I needed the most support, the man on the team, the best in the world, came and gave me love,” Neymar told Globo Esporte.Neymar talked about how Messi told him to settle in his new surroundings. “He talked to me and said: ‘When you come here, you must be yourself, you must be happy and the same as in Santos. Do not be shy, do not be afraid of me or anyone in this club. We are here to help you.’”The Brazilian moved to Barcelona in 2013, moving from Santos for a fee of €57.1 million. In 186 appearances for the club, Neymar scored 105 goals. His most successful season in 2014/15 yielded the treble as he formed a deadly trio with Messi and Luis Suarez.In a surprising move in 2017, he left for Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of €222 million. Despite his move away from Barcelona, he still maintains a good relationship with Messi.Neymar is currently in Brazil, as he is going through rehabilitation from an injury he suffered. PSG expect him to return to France to support the team when they face Manchester United in the Champions League next month.Advertisementlast_img read more

Report: Newcastle 2 Man City 1

Posted on

first_imgManchester City suffered a shock loss in defence of their Premier League title as Newcastle United came from behind to win 2-1 at St James’ Park.Matt Ritchie’s penalty 10 minutes from time sealed one of the most surprising results of the season to leave Liverpool with the chance to move seven points clear with a victory over Leicester City on Wednesday.Sergio Aguero looked to have set a predictable tone for Pep Guardiola’s 100th top-flight game at the helm, his goal after 24 seconds apparently teeing the Catalan up for a record 74th win from that century of outings.

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! But City failed to build on that fast start and the hosts levelled through Salomon Rondon with 24 minutes remaining.And when Fernandinho fouled Sean Longstaff in the box, Ritchie stepped up to drive his spot-kick underneath Ederson and strike what could be a pivotal blow in the title race.80′ – GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Ritchie puts the penalty away and the Magpies lead 2-1! #NUFC pic.twitter.com/XTkCkgZ9OX— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) January 29, 2019With City having taken 46 points from the last 48 available against the Magpies, Rafael Benitez may well have hoped just to keep things tight early on.Any such plans were shattered before he even had the chance to warm his seat.David Silva stumbled into Raheem Sterling’s cross, diverting the ball into Aguero’s path for the striker to volley home his 15th goal in 13 top-flight outings against Newcastle. 24 – Sergio Aguero’s goal after 24 seconds was the fastest Manchester City have scored in a Premier League game since Jesus Navas scored after 13 seconds against Tottenham Hotspur in November 2013. Rapid. pic.twitter.com/bbMqk4cwAW — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 29, 2019 Aguero was celebrating a second in the 18th minute, but referee Paul Tierney ruled that Kevin De Bruyne was a little too eager in executing a quickly taken free-kick and booked the Belgium midfielder.To their credit, the hosts held firm for the remainder of the first half, although Florian Lejeune had to be alert to block Silva’s shot on the line. Sterling came within a whisker of doubling the lead early in the second half but allowed Leroy Sane’s cross to go through his legs, while Silva stung Martin Dubravka’s palms.Then came the unexpected revival as Rondon, who had cut an isolated figure, sprung to life to lash home after City were caught napping by Isaac Hayden’s header over the top.Ritchie calmly converted from the spot and City could not muster a meaningful response, leaving Liverpool with a golden opportunity to put one hand on a maiden Premier League trophy triumph.What does it mean? They think it’s all over…Guardiola conceded that his City side could ill-afford to drop any more points in order to retain their crown. Even if they should now win all their remaining 14 games, City would fall short of the 100 points they achieved last season. The title may already have been Liverpool’s to lose, but they would have to throw it away now.Benitez the mastermindAll the talk will be about City losing, but Newcastle won this game fair and square and they did it despite going behind so early on. They stuck to the game plan, stayed in the contest and picked their moments. Credit has to go to the Newcastle boss for pulling this one off.Fernandinho floundersHe has been so important to City, and Guardiola has acknowledged as much, but Fernandinho’s moment of madness in conceding the penalty could be the act that ended his side’s bid for glory.Key Opta facts- Newcastle have beaten Manchester City in a Premier League game for the first time since September 2005, ending a run of 22 meetings without a win (D3 L19).- Only Jose Mourinho (W73 D18 L9 – 237 points) picked up more points than Guardiola (W73 D15 L12 – 234 points) in his first 100 games in England’s top flight.1 – Only Jose Mourinho (237 points) picked up more points in his first 100 Premier League games as a manager than the Pep Guardiola (234).

Apolis Ain’t Your Typical Menswear Store

Posted on

first_img The Best New Men’s Grooming Brands You Need to Know About Hops and Terroir: Why the Beer World is Embracing the Wine Term A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America Tattoo Ideas for Men (For When You Have No Idea) The Nomadic Beer Maestros of Evil Twin Brewing Find a Permanent Home in Queens Although you wouldn’t know it looking at its cool utility-driven collection of menswear and unisex accessories, the L.A.-based brand Apolis (meaning “global citizen”) is a socially minded label that is dedicated to changing and empowering communities and artisans by fostering local economic development worldwide. In other words, it’s one of those rare “do good” brands that actually looks and wears splendidly.Founded by brothers Raan and Shea Parton 12 years ago, the label manufactures in economically challenged areas from Bangladesh to the USA and consistently cranks out clothing and other items that are covetable, affordable and, yes, ethical.In the wake of the grand opening of their first New York standalone store last week (the second after their one in Los Angeles), the two spoke to me how the new downtown shop, aptly named the Apolis Community Centre, will blend traditional retail with education and community outreach, including lectures and musical performances.Tell me about the new NYC store.Raan: It was kind of a serendipitous last-minute project that kind of fell into our laps. We have been looking out there but it’s rare when it comes together and you sort of turnkey jump on it so we turned it around in about two to three weeks.But it’s not the typical shop, right?Raan: We’re just trying to take more of a unique retail approach with every regional base that we find. In L.A. we are located in the Arts District and there’s a lot of working artists even in the building where our store and offices are so we wanted that to be more of an exhibition space so we’ve hosted gallery functions, film premieres of small docs or small community-attended previews of certain films or long format speaking functions. We wanted to think of a way where we could create more of a workshop/classroom format in addition to the retail side of what we do.We had our first workshop in New York with a pretty prolific author by the name of Kyle Westaway who also writes The Wall Street Journal so we did a workshop on publishing. We have a unique partnership with Quincy Jones Productions so we will be a small venue for them to push out emerging talent in New York in a gallery space. So we will be hosting 50-person or even smaller events for press previews for certain talents that maybe need a place to play in New York.Why make the store a community gathering place?Shea: Everything is always coming back to this idea that we don’t believe that there’s a need for more brick-and-mortar stores unless they serve a local purpose that is useful and relevant. Our first and foremost priority is our brand, our product being shop-able and available and that’s what the majority of the days that the store is open will look like.Our events are going to be things that create a level of authenticity that create the bold idea of a community center. We have a speaking series that we started in Los Angeles that focuses on how different forms of industry impacts community. We are excited in a lot of different ways to bring our experience in Los Angeles over the last four years to New York but doing it in a way that we believe is relevant to New Yorkers to what’s needed in the SoHo neighborhood.Who is the typical customer at the new store?Raan: It’s pretty broad. We have everyone from someone who is just getting into the contemporary category to executive customers who are looking for a more subtle or casual look with more of a West Coast slant. We’ve also had a lot of Europeans through the door who are just on holiday. We’ve also had a lot of people from D.C., Boston, New Jersey and Midwest cities who are just passing through New York. We’ve had a big presence here on the West Coast but we’ve always kind of struggled to find that East Coast retail presence for the brand. Being that the brand has been around for nearly ten years it has been it exciting to see a lot of people come out of the woodwork who have had product over the years and to create a little home for them to see what we are doing.What are your favorite products in the current collection?Raan: We are just continuing to refine a lot of our core basic collection. Our farmer’s market bag with our Bangladesh project is kind of hitting the thresholds of scale that we’ve never been able to achieve with any of our other projects so we’re nearing 130,000 to 140,000 units of production which is equating to employment of this project in Bangladesh that we started four years ago. We have been able to individually customize cities for people that we’ll facilitate out of the shop. We can make one of one bag for them and have shipped to them through the two shops or our ecommerce site.What’s next for the brand?Raan: We have built a pretty big range of wholesale accounts and I think we’re just really trying to double down on the community and the conversation directly with our customers and audience. That’s why we are very actively spending a lot of time on both coasts to create that open door environment. I don’t think many brands have the opportunity to do right now because they are so tied into a traditional fashion calendar and we’re trying as a brand to live in the now and have that dialogue with our customers and resource feedback. We want to reimagine our product cycle and range. Instead of telling our customers what to wear I think it is becoming much more collaborative for us.What has been the best part of running your own store?Raan: I think the biggest challenge in the past is that we worked with a lot of third-party retailers. We love those relationships but a lot of times we don’t have the visibility or feedback in real time. A lot of time we will get feedback about performance a quarter of the way through the year. Having this new real-time feedback is our new lifeline and barometer to our steps forward. Having that communication with our audience is changing the way we work.

Toronto museum identifies new dinosaur species names it after Ghostbusters monster

Posted on

first_imgTORONTO – Scientists from the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto say they’ve identified a new species of armoured dinosaur and named it after a monster from the 1984 movie “Ghostbusters.”The museum says it acquired the skeleton of Zuul crurivastator last year, and calls it one of the most complete and best-preserved skeletons of this group of dinosaurs ever found.Officials say it includes a complete skull and tail club, and preserved soft tissues.Research on the new species, which the museum says was about the size of a white rhinoceros, is published in the May 10 issue of the open-access journal Royal Society Open Science.The museum says the 75-million year old, plant-eating dinosaur was named after “Zuul,” the “Ghostbusters” monster, based on the features of its well-preserved skull — a short, rounded snout and prominent horns behind the eyes.Its species name, crurivastator, means “destroyer of shins,” and references the weapon-like tail club found with the skeleton.Zuul belongs to the ankylosaurid ankylosaurs family of dinosaurs, which have a large knob of bone at the tip of their stiffened tails, which could have been used to strike at the legs of predatory dinosaurs in defence, or may have been used to battle each other during contests for mates or territory.Zuul’s three-metre-long tail also has many rows of large, sharp bony spikes, in addition to the tail club, making it particularly menacing, the museum said Wednesday in a release.“I’ve been working on ankylosaurs for years, and the spikes running all the way down Zuul’s tail were a fantastic surprise to me — like nothing I’ve ever seen in a North American ankylosaur,” said Victoria Arbour, an expert on armoured dinosaurs and lead author of the study.“It was the size and shape of the tail club and tail spikes, combined with the shape of the horns and ornaments on the skull, that confirmed this skeleton was a new species of ankylosaur,” Arbour said.The new dinosaur was discovered after its nearly complete skeleton was excavated from the Judith River Formation of Montana, where remains of some of the first dinosaurs ever discovered in North America have been collected.Zuul is one of the most complete and best-preserved ankylosaurs ever discovered, with skin impressions preserved on the tail, and the keratin sheaths preserved on some of the armour spikes, the ROM said.“The preservation of the fossil is truly remarkable,” said the museum’s David Evans, a leader of the project.Zuul was found only 25 kilometres from the Alberta border, in badlands along the Milk River.last_img read more

UK to deport more Tamils

Posted on

“The British government’s asylum procedure is failing to identify Tamils at risk of torture upon return to Sri Lanka despite growing evidence that torture of Tamil activists deported from abroad occurs,” said David Mepham, UK director at Human Rights Watch. “Until the government can fairly and thoroughly assess asylum claims based on up-to-date human rights information on Sri Lanka, it should suspend returns.”A Tamil woman asylum seeker who returned to Sri Lanka in May 2009 said she was detained, questioned and subjected to torture including sexual abuse by security agents, and imprisoned for five months at an army camp, Human Rights Watch claimed. Britain is to deport more Sri Lankan Tamils on Thursday, Human Rights Watch said today.Human Rights Watch said that the United Kingdom should immediately suspend deportations of ethnic Tamil asylum seekers to Sri Lanka and review its policies in assessing these claims. Investigations by Human Rights Watch have found that some failed Tamil asylum seekers from the United Kingdom and other countries have been subjected to arbitrary arrest and torture upon their return to Sri Lanka. In addition to eight cases in which deportees faced torture on return reported in February, Human Rights Watch has since documented a further five cases in which Tamil failed asylum seekers were subjected to torture by government security forces on return from various countries, most recently in February 2012. Two Tamil men returned described torture by Sri Lankan authorities upon arrival in Colombo. One said he was severely beaten and scalded with cigarettes and heated iron rods. The second told Human Rights Watch about his torture at the headquarters of the military Criminal Investigations Department after he was detained at the airport:The UK Border Agency’s Operational Guidance Note on Sri Lanka, updated in April 2012, acknowledges reports of torture as a widespread practice in Sri Lanka, but omits guidance on the risk of torture based on participation in demonstrations and other political activity abroad.  Human Rights Watch’s investigations indicate that their torturers interrogated deportees about their political activities abroad.

UN chief pays tribute to courage resilience of people of Central African

Posted on

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres meeting with youth at Youth Cultural Centre. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹ › Calling on donors to fulfil their commitments to provide humanitarian aid, he stressed the importance of supporting the country’s recovery and peacebuilding plan. The National Assembly has a vital role to play in ensuring the efficient delivery of government services, not just in the capital, but at the local level, he said. “We are all committed to the return to peace,” he said, noting that a cessation of hostilities is undoubtedly important, but there is also a need to bring peace to people’s hearts. “The Central African Republic has suffered for far too long. As representatives of the people, you have a central part to play in turning the situation around,” he told the lawmakers. Noting the historical generosity of the Central Africans who, over the years, have opened their borders to refugees from neighboring countries, the Secretary-General pledged that the UN would continue to accompany and support Central Africans.Mr. Guterres then travelled to the PK5 area, a traditionally Muslim part of Bangui that has been the site of violence against the community. He listened to the concerns of community leaders, including issues regarding safety and discrimination, as well as the lack of economic opportunities for young people. He also heard from local Christian leaders who spoke of reconciliation. The Secretary-General underscored his deep belief that religious conflicts are often the result of political manipulation and not religious differences, noting that for years, Christians and Muslims had coexisted peacefully in the country. The Secretary-General then held a roundtable with youth leaders and a separate session with women leaders. On his way to Paris, during a stopover in Yaoundé, the Secretary-General is expected to meet with the President of Cameroon, Paul Biya, to discuss a number of regional and national issues.

UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Secretary-General Antonio Guterres meeting community in PK5. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe “I wish to pay tribute to the people’s courage, resilience and determination to overcome great adversity,” Mr. Guterres told the National Assembly in the capital, Bangui, on the final day of his visit to the country. “The task of solving this crisis lies first and foremost in the hands of the people of the Central African Republic. Nobody is in a better position to help the country than its own citizens,” he added. The UN chief noted that the country’s enormous difficulties include insecurity, a humanitarian crisis and slow progress towards development. Armed groups are fragmenting and multiplying. One in four Central Africans is displaced. Development programmes are needed for neglected rural areas. Religion and ethnic origin have been manipulated to create division among communities, severely polarizing a fragile country. “The Central African Republic is at risk of sliding back into open inter-communal violence,” Mr. Guterres said. The UN integrated peacekeeping mission there, known by its French acronym, MINUSCA, will use force when the State’s stability is threatened, and each time civilians need protection, but does not favour any religious or ethnic group, he said, adding that their actions can assist in creating a space to build peace through dialogue. However, he said: “Nowhere in the world has the use of force alone resolved a conflict. We therefore need not only more peacekeepers, but more political initiatives for peace.” Secretary-General António Guterres (left) interacts with members of Muslim community in PK5, Bangui.

Now, a high-tech unmanned boat has been enlisted to help search for that plane, near an island where Earhart may have crash-landed.All that’s officially known about the disappearance of Earhart – along with her navigator, Fred Noonan – is that her last verified radio transmission was received while she was flying over the central Pacific Ocean. A number of subsequently-reported messages may or may not have come from her.Based on those later transmissions, and on physical evidence such as human bones, many people now believe that after encountering mechanical difficulties, she successfully ditched her aircraft near the Southwestern Pacific island of Nikumaroro – there, she managed to live on for some time. And although the plane may have initially been sitting on a reef fairly close to the shore, it’s possible that currents carried it out into deeper water over the decades.Led by marine explorer Robert Ballard – the guy who found the wreck of the Titanic – a National Geographic expedition is now set to search for the aircraft in the waters around Nikumaroro.

Africa and Middle East flagged for growth

Posted on

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P Corporate management company FCm Travel Solutions has marked Africa and the Middle East as major growth regions for the company’s global network over the next 12 months.FCm global brand leader Gregory Lording said growing the FCm network will enable them to capture the Africa and Middle Eastern corporate travel markets and boost existing ones.“Our expansion into Africa will leverage the benefits of increasing commercial engagement with Africa from corporate clients from places such as Australia, Middle East and the US,” Mr Lording said.Mr Lording stated that according to recent government reports Australia has over 220 mining and resource companies working on projects across 42 African countries, and views Africa as a region of great business opportunity and growth.FCm is currently operating offices in nine locations throughout the Middle East, and has announced plans for further growth and development in the region in 2012.Mr Lording said the company’s vested interest in the Middle East was due to the businesses success in the region, which was considerably increased when FCm parent company Flight centre opened a company owned office in Dubai.“Strategic growth, largely through our licensee network in Africa and the Middle East will provide our clients around the world with more customised and local services in these growing hubs.”  In the pipeline the company is also planning an aggressive two to three year expansion plan to gradually grow its network to cover over 100 countries.last_img read more

Mortgage Rates are Climbing What Now

Posted on

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Share Mortgage interest rates rose for the fifth week in a row and are at their highest level in more than a year, according to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS) released on Thursday.The average 30-year FRM climbed by another 5 basis points up to 4.08 percent for the week ending November 30, 2016, and is 15 basis points higher than the same week a year ago. The average 30-year FRM has risen by 51 basis points in the three weeks since the election and is at its highest point since the week of July 16, 2015, when it was 4.08 percent, according to Reuters. The average 15-year FRM jumped by nine basis points from the previous week, up to 3.34 percent, which is 18 basis points higher over-the-year.“With mortgage rates at the highest we’ve seen this year, borrowers are now backpedaling on refinance opportunities,” Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sean Becketti said. “The latest Weekly Applications Survey results from the Mortgage Bankers Association show refinance activity down 16 percent week over week.”What’s next for lenders in the higher mortgage rate environment, after rates hovered near record lows for most of the year?“As investors move away from U.S government assets, including US mortgage-backed securities, in favor of relatively safer investments, we expect more volatility as markets try to put a price on the political developments,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages for Zillow Group. “Consumers considering buying or refinancing now should stay patient, as we’ll likely see rates stabilize once markets find a new equilibrium.”Holden Lewis, Senior Mortgage Analyst with Bankrate.com, said the higher interest rates may prompt lenders to count on referrals for new purchase loans as opposed to established business for refinances.“You’re going to see fewer refinances,” Lewis said. “For lenders, a big part of it is going to be concentrating more on purchase loans. I would assume that loan officers are going to have to concentrate more on developing relationships with realtors. It’s not going to be a refinance relationship, which is sort of a one-on-one relationship with a borrower, like maybe you did a loan with them two years ago and then you contact them and say, ‘Hey, have you thought about refinancing?’ Now, I think it’s more about finding a way to get a hold of those homebuyers and probably a lot of that is through referrals from realtors.”Keith Gumbinger, VP at HSH.com, said the velocity of rates has slowed in the last two weeks after a big bump in the week following the election indicates that the correction in rates may be ending—and that rates are still relatively near historic lows.”The immediate impact is that refinance activity (which had already been petering out) will pretty much come to a standstill (excepting relatively small audiences comprised of those with old ‘high’ rate mortgages who are only now becoming aligned with today’s underwriting standards (credit score/equity/documentation,etc),” Gumbinger said. “As well, now that it’s the holiday season, it’s a solid bet that purchase activity will be quieter than it otherwise would be if rates hadn’t legged up in recent weeks.”Gumbinger continued, “For a longer forward-looking period, and if rates do continue upward, refinance activity won’t be able to come back, curtailing originations to a fair degree in 2017. However, and despite firmer rates, purchase activity should remain solid; I don’t think there will be a real effect on purchase activity until rates are closing in on the 5 percent mark. The slightly firmer rates in place now are no major deterrent for someone who wants to buy a home, even if it may see them need to look at slightly less-costly homes. To the degree that it puts more marginal buyers on the sidelines for a time, it may mean that inventory levels of available homes may have a chance to fill up a bit, which in turn may temper price increases should they get beyond “normal” levels. However, supplies are running well short of normal, so that’s not likely to happen quickly—and it will take a while until even normal levels are reached at this point.” December 1, 2016 772 Views center_img Mortgage Lenders Mortgage Rates 2016-12-01 Seth Welborn Mortgage Rates are Climbing . . .

If this new ownership group decides, ‘Well, the best way to expand globally is to really rely 100 per cent on big American stars,’ then that’s not a good thing.“And I hope with all my heart that’s not the road that they take.”News that the venerable comedy showcase had been sold to an investor group led by the massive U.S. talent agency ICM Partners and Canuck comic Howie Mandel caught comedy watcher Andrew Clark by surprise.As the program director of comedy writing and performance at Toronto’s Humber College, Clark is attuned to a shifting industry in which global markets are drawing increasing interest from Hollywood.He noted the group promised to expand the festival’s global presence and wondered if that meant future showcases would be staged abroad.“Why not have a Just for Laughs tour that’s touring China or that’s touring those other parts of the world? Or having a Just for Laughs festival in Shanghai?” said Clark, musing on the possibilities.“I think they’re looking at: ‘Well, Just For Laughs (spinoff) JFL42 has worked in Toronto … what if we do Just For Laughs Atlanta? Or Just For Laughs Chicago or Minneapolis?”And it wouldn’t take much to pivot, which wouldn’t be a bad thing, he added.“I’m glad that there will be an international component to it. It doesn’t frighten me too much.”Despite the festival’s deep roots in Montreal, the festival has always featured a lot of U.S. and foreign talent.“It was never just a Canadian comedy festival. In the ’90s, it was a festival where Canada got to mingle with the Hollywood industry and then as the Internet kind of took over, the need to fly to Montreal to judge talent dimmed,” Clark said, nevertheless seeing opportunities for Canadians to shine even brighter.Yuk Yuk’s founder Mark Breslin also saw much to be hopeful about, largely because of Mandel’s involvement.“I think a lot of Canadian comedians right now are heaving a sigh of relief that the festival … has not transferred it entirely over to American hands. I think it was very smart of ICM and also a very astute investment of Howie Mandel to have a Canadian that has a such a prominent position in the ownership of a Canadian legacy company.”And Butt, too, found some solace in knowing that a seasoned comic was involved, but wondered to what degree Mandel would wield his influence.“It’s always better if somebody’s making decisions about the stage when they’ve been on the stage before,” said the “Corner Gas” star, who first performed at the Montreal mainstay in 1992.“Is Howie going to be calling shots? If he is, I have a higher level of confidence. If he’s not, then we really have to take a wait-and-see attitude.”Mandel insisted Wednesday that he intends to champion Canadian talent.“We know the British rock-and-roll. Canada is really not on the map as far as what Canada has meant to comedy,” Mandel said.“I don’t need to be the face but I want to be a strong voice in promoting and continuing and growing the Montreal comedy festival as somebody who is a comedian and somebody who loves comedy, every type of comedy, in every language and loves Canada.”Comedian Mike Paterson said Mandel’s involvement “is great,” calling him “an awesome person and a great man.”And he hoped that the involvement of an entertainment juggernaut like ICM — one of the world’s biggest talent agencies with clients in film, television, books, music and live performance — would mean more Hollywood attention on homegrown acts.“There’s a lot of good opportunity for Canadian comedians,” said Paterson.At the very least, Mandel’s association will remind partners that the festival began and flourished in Canada, said Breslin. He chose to believe Mandel would ensure that connection remains strong.“A voice at the table is better than no voice at the table. And I think that having Howie’s voice at the table will really mean something for Canadian comics.”— With files from Ross Marowits in Montreallast_img read more

Government condemns Armenian genocide

Posted on

first_imgThe government and President Nicos Anastasiades on Monday strongly condemned the Armenian genocide by Turkey on the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the event.In a written statement, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said the genocide was an abominable crime and a shameful chapter in the history of humanity and stressed that “the government expresses its full solidarity and sympathy with the people of Armenia and reiterates its full support for the recognition of the Armenian genocide by the international community.”The date of April 24, 1915 represents the day that Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, the majority of whom were eventually murdered. The genocide is believed to have seen 1.5 million Armenians killed.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
