Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar hints at future move to Real Madrid

first_img Next Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar hints at future move to Real MadridNeymar is currently recovering in Brazil from another metatarsal injury in his right foot that he sustained in January, and is expected to return to action next month.advertisement Associated Press New DelhiMarch 4, 2019UPDATED: March 4, 2019 13:25 IST Neymar has spoken about speculation he could one day join Real Madrid (Reuters Photo)Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is battling back from two injuries, not one, at last year’s World Cup.In a 2-hour interview with TV Globo on Sunday, Neymar said a problem in his right ankle was affecting his recovery in Russia, as well as the metatarsal fracture in the same foot that he had previously described.”Besides the metatarsal, I had an ankle problem. I ruptured the ligament and the recovery was crazier because of this,” the PSG striker said.Neymar said the metatarsal injury did not unduly trouble him in Russia, but the ankle did. “It is very annoying with the ankle, it takes a long time to get back to normal,” he said.Brazil was eliminated by Belgium in the quarterfinals, and Neymar failed to deliver his best performances during the tournament.Neymar is currently recovering in Brazil from another metatarsal injury in his right foot that he sustained in January, and is expected to return to action next month.The former Barcelona forward talked about speculation he could one day join Real Madrid.”It is one of the biggest clubs in the world, any player that Real Madrid seeks would be drawn into playing there. I am very happy at PSG. But no one knows the future,” he said.Recent videos have shown Neymar dancing at a party in Salvador, which has led to criticism about the way he is handling his recovery, but he said he would not be changing his ways.”When people say Neymar’s life off the pitch troubles him on the pitch … No. You are completely wrong, it doesn’t trouble him in any way. I am a man that takes care of himself.

This Last-Minute Summer Body Workout Will Get You in Shirtless Shape Quick

first_img The Best Leg Exercises for Sculpted Calves, Quads, and More How to (Almost) Painlessly Improve Your Running How to Build Your Own Home Gym for Under $350 Editors’ Recommendations Here’s the good news: It’s about six weeks until Memorial Day (Monday, May 28) and the unofficial start of summer. Here’s the bad news: It’s about six weeks until Memorial Day and you’ve been living the “Netflix and Chill” lifestyle all winter.Yes, you will probably want to take your shirt off at some point, but even if you only strip down to a tank top, you’ll at least want to be in good enough shape so nobody confuses you for the inflatable pool toy. It’s time for a beach body workout.Before you do a single push-up, see a doctor. You need to make sure you’re healthy enough to actually start this regimen. None of this does any good if you end up in the ER (or worse). Second, if your budget allows, hire a trainer. Both of these moves can help avoid injury, making sure that you’re getting the most that summer’s outdoor activities have to offer.A Firm FoundationWill Torres — personal trainer, owner and founder of Willspace — suggests foregoing the weights to start. “Weights are not my first ‘go-to.’ I believe in starting with gymnastics and body weight exercises. A lot of fitness advice is from the 1970s with Stallone and Schwarzenegger as their ideal. These are routines designed for guys who used steroids,” says Torres. “And what’s Arnold on? His second heart surgery now? The focus needs to be on movement. Be sure you are making progress with a specific movement, all while becoming more skillful.”Rhone and Travis J PhotographyTorres suggests starting with simple push-ups and dips. Add a forearm plank, progress to a straight-arm plank, and, eventually, a one-arm plank. “The idea is to get stronger by recruiting more muscles,” says Torres. These simple exercises focus on the shoulders, triceps, and core, offering the most visual (and practical) impact.Feel the need to hit the weight room? Pay attention to form and balance. “Take a strength exercise and then super-set it with a counter-stretch,” says Torres. “Muscles can get so over-developed that they fight themselves, impeding results. Some guys’ chest muscles actually pull their upper bodies in, giving an almost concave look.”For example, after a bench press, Torres recommends a “tabletop” or “bridge” stretch for 30 seconds. “Most guys can’t even get into the pose because their biceps are so tight. Counter-stretching makes the muscles longer and leaner, so they get stronger.”Heavy BreathingMix in some aerobics with that weight training. Let’s face it, running sucks. And, luckily, it’s also not Torres’ favorite. “Many people don’t have good form when they are running. Over time, all that pounding results in major injuries. Try running shorter distances, combined with a strength movement. Run a quarter-mile, then do 15 dips and 20 sit-ups.”Rhone and Travis J PhotographyAnother easy option for getting in a mild aerobic exercise is to take some extra time to walk everywhere instead of driving or using public transit. If you live in the right place, bike to work or while running errands. Get that heart pumping.Finally, have some fun with it. Grab a buddy for a workout instead of a beer. Take your significant out for a day in the park. Chase your kids. Foster a dog. Set a goal for a 5K or to do an obstacle course race later in the summer. Find a couple of favorite websites and follow some heroes on Instagram for inspiration.Never Say DietWell, do, actually. For the next six weeks, maybe save the cocktails and brewskis for the weekend. (Luckily, Cinco de Mayo lands on a Saturday this year, the same day as the Kentucky Derby).They key here is intermittent fasting, and you already do it —it’s called “break-fast.”“By eating and snacking all day, we are always consuming calories, so there’s no reason for our bodies to burn them off,” says Torres. “Have three to four meals, every three to four hours, with 12 hours of feeding, then 12 hours of fasting. Eat between 7 am and 7: pm … and not again until 7 the next morning. A well-balanced meal will sustain you for three to four hours, so be sure to include protein, carbs, fats, and fiber. Eliminate sugar and processed carbs from your diet completely.”Pay attention to serving size, even for “healthy” snacks. “Nuts are a classic example,” says Torres. “They are good for you, but, it’s difficult to not go overboard with serving size. Twenty almonds is barely a handful.”Too much to handle? Here’s more good news: Labor Day (and the start of Netflix and Chill season) is only 21 weeks away!

North Dakota leaders unveil oil taxsharing deal with tribe

first_imgBISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota Republican legislative leaders have introduced a bill that aims to end a longstanding disagreement over shared revenues on the oil-rich Fort Berthold Indian reservation.The bill unveiled Thursday reworks a tax-sharing agreement that favours the Three Affiliated Tribes on the reservation that accounts for about a fifth of the state’s oil production.The legislation is the result of nearly two years of negotiations between tribal leaders, Republican Gov. Doug Burgum, legislative leaders, the state tax department and industry officials.Three Affiliated Tribes Chairman Mark Fox and Burgum say they support the legislation.The state Tax Department estimates the tribes will gain an additional $33 million in revenue over the next two-year budget cycle under the legislation.James MacPherson, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Dr Jane Barton The Oxfordeducated GP at centre of Gosport hospital scandal

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Dr Jane Barton was educated at Oxford University, graduating with a degree in medicine in 1972.She worked as a GP in Dorset before joining the Gosport War Memorial Hospital in May 1988 as a clinical assistant.Her part-time role meant she had responsibility for the day-to-day medical management of the patients on two wards and also for prescribing the drugs needed.Dr Barton’s manner was sometimes questioned with one grieving relative claiming she overheard her say: “We’ve got another weeper here”, when she began crying.When she was brought before the General Medical Council over her role in the scandal, she claimed her long working hours and the intense pressure of the job had impacted on her performance.In a statement she said: “Anyone following this case carefully will know that I was faced with an excessive and increasing burden in trying to care for patients at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital.“Throughout my career I have tried to do my very best for all my patients and have had only their interests and wellbeing at heart.” The couple live in a £700,000 detached home in Gosport, but there was no sign of them on Wednesday, with neighbours claiming they had gone to Menorca.A neighbour said: ‘She doesn’t have many friends around here. I only know her from seeing her across the street. She’s friendly.” She is married to retired Royal Navy Commodore, Tim Barton, who has previously defended her role in what happened.In 2002 he told a newspaper: “Instead of trying to find a new Harold Shipman, it might be more constructive to ask why a part-time GP was looking after 48 beds.” Dr Barton was found guilty of professional misconduct but was not struck off and later retired to enjoy her hobby of wildlife photography.

MEGTEC to build worlds largest methane emissions abatement system for Chinese coal

first_imgMEGTEC Systems’ China subsidiary has been contracted to build the largest plant in the world to capture and eliminate ventilation air methane (VAM) from the Datong coal mine in China’s Chongqing municipality. The agreement was formally signed between MEGTEC and a three-way joint venture partnership, consisting of AES Climate Solutions, Shenzhen Dongjiang Environmental Renewable Power, and Songzao Coal and Chongqing Electricity. Negotiations for constructing the Datong VAM system began in November 2009, and it is planned to be operational late 2010. It will use MEGTEC’s proven VOCSIDIZER® technology to eliminate about 97% of the methane in the exhaust stream before it enters the atmosphere, which is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 200,000 t of CO2 equivalent every year. In addition, energy released in the process will be used to heat water for nearby buildings. Mohit Uberoi, President & CEO: “It is by far the largest VAM emission control system anywhere in the world, with six of our VOCSIDIZER units and a capacity of 375,000 Nm3/h of ventilation air”.This greenhouse gas reduction project also has the potential to generate carbon offset (CER) credits. Emissions reduction projects that involve the transfer of technology to an emerging market (China) and are developed under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) can be considered for CER credits. “So far the UNFCCC has formally approved CERs from only one VAM abatement project in the world,” Uberoi pointed out. “This is also a MEGTEC system, commissioned in 2008 at the ZhengZhou Mining Group in China’s Henan province”. That system, a single-unit installation, processes around 60,000 Nm3/h of ventilation air, and also generates hot water for local use. MEGTEC units are modular, so smaller scale projects can be expanded as needed.MEGTEC’s technology is used at the world’s second largest VAM installation, WestVAMP at West Cliff coal mine for BHP Billiton, Australia. For three years, four VOCSIDIZER units have been converting the energy from the mine’s VAM stream into superheated steam that operates a 6 MW turbine, generating electricity that is fed into the local power grid.The patented VAM technology also earned MEGTEC an EPA Climate Protection Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency in 2008, in recognition of its systems’ ability to turn greenhouse gas into green energy. However, generating electricity requires more complex systems and a much longer lead time than the large-scale Datong project, according to Ake Kallstrand, Technical Director: “The gas composition and mine safety considerations also pose unique challenges in implementing VOCSIDIZER technology or, for that matter, other abatement systems”. China is the largest VAM emitter in the world, and nearly 80% of its electricity stems from coal.last_img read more

Historic Greek Orthodox Church restored in Turkey

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram One of the oldest, still standing Greek Orthodox churches in Turkey is Agios Georgios, located approximately 15km from Alanya city centre, in the Hacı Mehmetli village near the resort town of Antalya.Even though the exact date of the temple’s construction remains unknown, according to a carving in the Museum of Alanya, referring to it in both Greek and Turkish, it was last restored in 1873 and was being used until 1924.The municipality of Alanya has decided to renovate the church, which will cost up to AU$65,000 and is expected to be finished within four months.As approved by the Antalya Regional, Cultural and Natural Heritage Preservation Board, the church will be used as house of worship, cultural centre and multi-purpose hall.“To protect Alanya’s history, we have begun renovating it for the tourism of the region,” Alanya’s mayor Adem Murat Yücel said.The building has recently been made available to the Russian Orthodox Christians in the area who are allowed to perform liturgies once a month.“We have information which indicates that before the population transfer between Greece and Turkey in 1922, it was used as a place of worship,” an official from the municipality said.“Afterwards worshippers were able to pray here on special days and with official permission.”last_img read more

McCain Thornberry to Continue Talks over Defense Bill

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and his House counterpart, Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), are expected to continue negotiations over the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill during Congress’ August recess with the goal of completing a conference report in September.“We’re not going to stay in town, but there are phones and all kinds of ways of communicating and engaging,” McCain said.The two committee leaders planned to meet Thursday night to see if they could make progress on some of the most contentious issues separating the two sides, reported CQ Roll Call. Differences over military benefits have proven to be among the negotiation’s most difficult hurdles, as the Senate version embraces cost-saving proposals to slow the rate of increase in service members’ basic allowance for housing and raise Tricare prescription co-pays that the House rejects.Thornberry recently has offered a compromise regarding the proposed increase in co-pays for prescriptions, reported Politico.“The House is willing to consider modest Tricare co-pay adjustments, but only enough to prevent a point of order on the Senate floor related to the retirement system,” according to a memo Thornberry sent to his Republican committee members. “They would be roughly 30 percent of the Senate proposal. The House is unwilling to accept 100 percent of proposed increases,” the memo states.The conference committee also needs to resolve differences in the how the two versions replace the 20-year retirement benefit with a 401(k)-style savings plan that all personnel could take advantage of. The Senate bill would pay for the cost of the changes upfront, while the House bill does not.last_img read more

Citizen dons cops role mans traffic ably

Srinagar Colony: Clad in a blue-checked shirt and beige trousers, Ramu, a youngster, took on the role of a traffic cop and started manning traffic on Tuesday evening. The road is always chock-a-bloc, more so in the evenings as employees travelling from Hi-Tec City and beyond take a detour to avoid the main Jubilee Hills to Punjagutta Road.It is not every day that one gets to see the common man don the role of a traffic cop. He was seen going about his job with elan even as passerby watched him in amusement and with an air of appreciation at the T Junction near Satya Sai Nigamagam. Also Read – Hyderabad: Intermediate student dies of cardiac arrest in class Advertise With Us At such rush hours, when everybody is busy with their own chores, what made Ramu to volunteer controlling traffic. “These days, I have seen several videos motivating us to contribute little things to society. This is my contribution, though I’m not expecting any return from what I’m doing. It’s like what Ravi Teja says “I get the kick” by doing such things. I pray to God to give me more energy to do so,” said Ramu while controlling traffic. A senior citizen of Srinagar Colony, who was going for his evening walk, stopped in awe watching Ramu. “Hope may such youngsters take up volunteering.

South Sudan buys weapons during famine UN

first_imgWomen carry food in gunny bags after visiting an aid distribution centre in Ngop in South Sudan’s Unity State. Photo: AFPSouth Sudan’s government is spending oil revenue on weapons as the country descends into a famine largely caused by President Salva Kiir’s military campaign, a confidential UN report says.The report obtained by AFP on Friday calls for an arms embargo on South Sudan—a measure that has been backed by the United States but was rejected by the Security Council during a vote in December.“Weapons continue to flow into South Sudan from diverse sources, often with the coordination of neighboring countries,” said the report by a UN panel of experts.The experts found a “preponderance of evidence (that) shows continued procurement of weapons by the leadership in Juba” for the army, the security services, militias and other “associated forces.”South Sudan derives 97 percent of its budget revenue from forward sales of oil. From late March to late October 2016, oil revenues totaled about $243 million, according to calculations from the panel.At least half—“and likely substantially more”—of its budget expenditures are devoted to security including arms purchases, the 48-page report said.The government continued to sign arms deals as a famine was declared in Unity State, where 100,000 people are dying of starvation and a further one million people are near starvation.“The bulk of evidence suggests that the famine in Unity State has resulted from protracted conflict and, in particular, the cumulative toll of repeated military operations undertaken by the government in southern Unity beginning in 2014,” said the report.The government is blocking access for humanitarian aid workers, compounding the food crisis, while significant population displacement is also contributing to the famine.An upsurge in fighting since July has devastated food production in areas that had been stable for farmers, such as the Equatoria region, considered the country’s breadbasket.The total number of South Sudanese facing famine could rise to 5.5 million in July if nothing is done to address the food crisis, the experts said.Weapons pour inThe report was released ahead of a special Security Council meeting on South Sudan on Thursday that will be chaired by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.The meeting could once again revive calls for an arms embargo, which was rejected despite warnings from the United Nations of a risk of genocide in South Sudan.While the previous US administration pushed for a ban on weapons sales, President Donald Trump’s government has yet to make clear its stance on ending one of Africa’s worst conflicts.Borders with Sudan and Uganda continue to be key entry points for weapons supplies to South Sudanese forces and some shipments are also entering from the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to the report.The panel cited information from high-ranking South Sudanese military and intelligence officers that Egypt had shipped military equipment, small arms, ammunition and armored vehicles to South Sudan over the past year.Experts are investigating the delivery this year of two L39 jets from Ukraine that were sold to Uganda, but may have ended up in South Sudan, as well as a contract with a Seychelles-based company for a very large quantity of armaments.In comparison, opposition forces have received limited supplies of light weapons ammunition, the report said.After gaining independence from Sudan in 2011, South Sudan descended into war in December 2013, leaving tens of thousands dead and 3.5 million people displaced.The United Nations is pushing regional leaders to exert pressure on Juba to end the violence that has turned tribal, pitting Kiir’s Dinka community against ethnic Nuer, Shilluk and other groups.last_img read more

Character Moments and a Tense Ending are the Saviors of Once Upon

first_img As Once Upon a Time attempts to wrap up every story it introduced in season seven before the series finale, some characters have started to feel a little lost. Namely Henry. Think about it, what’s the last meaningful thing we saw the guy do? Start a podcast? The show realizes this too. There are just so many more interesting things to focus on that Henry gets a little lost. This week, they tried to give him back some of his own story. Henry, Cinderella and Hook are partaking in the classic fairy tale activity of slaying a dragon. It doesn’t turn out to be as epic as it sounds. There is no dragon. Just a pile of abandoned treasure and a schlubby guy taking a nap. Henry’s disappointed not only because he missed out on a childhood fantasy, but because he’s denied a story. He wants an epic story of his own to offer Cinderella. You know, older Henry has spent so little time whining about nothing I almost forgot he’s the same kid from the previous six seasons. There’s the obnoxious brat we know and… know.OK, to be fair to the kid, his grandparents did give him a lot to live up to. You can’t blame him for developing a bit of a complex. Fortunately, Hook is here to put a stop to his whining. When Henry says he wants a special, meaningful ring to propose to Cinderella, Hook says he knows just where to get one. But they’ll have to steal the Jolly Roger back from Blackbeard. Sneaking aboard is the easy part, even if the barrels make them smell like pork. The hard part is taking the ship. Though Smee is still loyal to hook, none of his other former crewmates are. Blackbeard gets the jump on them and takes Hook’s map to Davy Jones’ Locker. Which is a real, literal thing on this show. They find a giant treasure chest, and Blackbeard takes a ring for himself.Andrew J. West, Colin O’Donoghue (Photo via ABC)If this is all starting to sound too convenient, it’s soon revealed that it is. Hook and Henry free themselves, and a decent-looking pirate fight ensues. It would be cool if it wasn’t all staged. Yep, it was all a fake adventure set up by Hook. Henry’s understandably pissed, but it looks like they’re about to have a real adventure anyway. A massive storm strikes, and Hook enlists Henry to help sail the ship. The near-death experience helps Henry realize that Cinderella doesn’t want a piece of treasure forged by danger. She wants Henry to come home safe. Henry figures out that the whirlpool is caused by Davy Jones who just wants his magic ring back. Hook drifts along the edge of the whirlpool while Henry climbs the masthead to throw the ring back. I have to give this sequence to the show. CGI water or no, a giant ship sailing through a storm will never not be cool.What’s less cool is Henry’s proposal. Yes, we get it. He learned that simplicity is best and he shouldn’t keep chasing adventure and danger. We didn’t need him to wax poetic on that theme for a whole scene before finally proposing to Jacinda. What could have been a big sappy moment of the season turned into an interminable treatise on simplicity. When Jacinda cuts him off to say yes, it’s out of excitement, but I’m just glad she got him to shut up.Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue, Andrew J. West (Photo via ABC)In the present, Henry is bumbling around Seattle bouncing off other peoples’ stories in search of his own. He meets Robin/Margot at Roni’s bar, and then runs into Nick, who we now know is the witch serial killer. Nick speaks cryptically about clients just to make the neon “MURDERER” sign above his head a little brighter. Then Henry gets a call with what he thinks is the next chapter in his story. It’s a podcast company in New York who wants to fly him out the next day to interview for a producer job. Because as someone who did move from Seattle to New York, let me tell you that’s exactly how it works. The problem for Henry is if he gets this job he has to move cross=country. That means no more H-Town, no more Jacinda, no more hope of breaking the curse.He awkwardly delivers the news to Jacinda and goes home to pack up. There’s at least one thing that’s going to keep him here. Detective Weaver needs his help. He found Henry’s book at the last crime scene with a bunch of super creepy notes written in it. Weaver makes Henry pour through the notes to decipher some meaning, but he can’t. We get a genuine, sweet scene out of this. One of the elements of this season I really like, one it has that the previous season couldn’t. Henry spent the previous six seasons building up a relationship with these people that he now doesn’t remember. The ones that are awake can then subtly hint at what they used to be. In this case, it’s a grandfather telling his grandson what he always admired about him. That he would always fight for hope and belief. This kind of thing never fails to melt my heart. Because I’m a sap.Robert Carlyle, Andrew J. West (Photo via ABC)It works on Henry too. He dives back into the book, realizing that he wrote himself into the story to connect with the fairy tale. He guesses that the killer is doing the same thing. Digging through the notes, he figures out that the killer sees himself as Hansel, and he’s targeting people he perceives as witches. Also, he’s obsessed with burns and scars. That give Rogers and Weaver enough to go on, and Henry heads to the airport. Because if there’s any place you can really take your time getting to, it’s the airport. Finally, Henry starts to catch on that something is keeping him in Hyperion Heights. As soon as he tries to cross the neighborhood border, he gets a flat tire. And it looks like it was caused by part of a glass slipper.And hey, look who’s here to pick him up. It’s Nick! Henry explains he’s decided to stay in Seattle and go see Jacinda. Nick even offers him a ride. What a nice guy! Henry pulls the total Henry move of unwittingly telling the bad guy everything about where he’s been that day. He spills the whole story of what he’s been working on with the cops all day, which I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t do even if you aren’t talking to the actual culprit. Until this point, the episode has been mostly ho-hum standard Once Upon a Time storylines punctuated by welcome moments of sweetness. In this scene, it gets tense. Particularly when Henry notices the burn marks on Nick’s wrist, and realizes just how bad and how thoroughly he f’ed himself. At that moment, the episode went from just ok to edge-of-my-couch riveting.Tiera Skovbye (Photo via ABC)That’s not to say the episode was bad before that moment. The story didn’t move forward all that much, but the episode made up for that. It used its time to organically build up to these well-done emotional character moments. They were all little things, but if you’re still watching Once Upon a Time in season seven, those little things are almost more important than the overall story. You’re here for the characters, even the new ones. Like Margot and Tilly. It was cool to watch Tilly slowly grow more confident over the course of the episode as she worked for Sabine at the beignet truck. Her story got even better once she started talking to Margot. We know they loved each other in the other realm, and it’s sweet watching them discover that the love still exists in this one. Tilly even convinces Margot to trust her mother a little more, even though there’s clearly something Zelena’s not telling her.It took Once Upon a Time until the end of the episode to get to the good stuff. The rest of it was setting up lessons for characters to learn that we didn’t realize they had to learn in the first place. It’s a well the show goes back to often, and it’s annoying every time. Especially when it involves Henry, who proved he can still be just as obnoxious as an adult as he was in the last six seasons. But then we get to the end of the episode. What an ending that was. The slower pace of most of the episode allowed them to subtly build to this satisfying, scary cliffhanger. Henry realizes that Nick is the Candy Killer, and Nick knocks him out. When Henry comes too, he’s tied up and Nick is standing over him with a knife. And since Once Upon a Time knows it’s a soap opera, it chooses now for Jacinda to call Henry. That’s where the episode ends. As frustrating as cliffhangers are, this one was at least fun. It works too. I know I’ll be glued to the couch next Friday night.

The Museum of San Ramón has a replica of one of the giants — based on bones found in the area.Giant sloths and their contemporaries roamed large swaths of South and Central America, and the specimen on display, at just 9 feet tall, is a shrimp. After all, it had to fit in the room. Giant ground sloths often grew up to 15 feet tall.Now how cute are they?Read the full story here. The face that launched a million T-shirts.

Given the company’s mixed reputation, some were concerned about how it would turn out. Gerald Richards, a volunteer consultant for the Sloth Sanctuary, said there was some talk about dressing Buttercup in a bikini.Whether the idea was serious or not, Richardson put the kibosh on it.“It’s really in good taste,” Richardson said of the final design. “I was very happy with it. And it’s about this wonderful place in Costa Rica.”Plus, 30 percent of proceeds from the T-shirt sales goes to the Sloth Sanctuary.Read the full story here.Sloth videosWant to hear what a baby sloth sounds like?

(Courtesy of Rebecca Cliffe)Sloths with backpacksIt’s hard to imagine but sloths have not always been loved by humankind. Eighteenth century French naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc called sloths “the lowest form of existence.” Because of such historical disdain, biologists today actually know very little about sloths. But a researcher at Costa Rica’s Sloth Sanctuary is trying to change that by strapping backpacks equipped with a GPS, an accelerometer and a compass to track the sloth’s daily activities.Once the data from the GPS is downloaded, a supercomputer assembles a 3-D image of the sloth in Google Maps, which shows exactly what the sloth was doing at any given moment.Read the full story here.

The pregnant momma sloth had fallen out of a tree on hotel grounds in Manuel Antonio and was still seriously injured when contractions started. A wildlife worker took the sloth to a vet, who determined that the baby was breached. He decided the only chance for saving mom and baby was a C-section.Read the full story here.PHOTOS: Every Costa Rica sloth image you will ever need to seelast_img read more

Police arrested Alvarez on a minor charge of obstructing free passage. A city worker removed the spoon with a payloader and it was hauled to a police evidence holding area.Several state and local governments are suing Purdue Pharma for allegedly using deceptive marketing to boost sales of its opioid painkiller OxyContin, deceiving patients and doctors about the risks of opioids. The company has been blamed for helping fuel addiction and opioid overdose deaths.Purdue Pharma denies the allegations in the lawsuits.“We share the protesters’ concern about the opioid crisis, and respect their right to peacefully express themselves,” the company said in a statement Friday in response to the sculpture. “Purdue is committed to working collaboratively with those affected by this public health crisis on meaningful solutions to help stem the tide of opioid-related overdose deaths.”Opioid overdose deaths rose to about 46,000 in the U.S. for the 12-month period that ended in October 2017, up about 15 per cent from October 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Esposito, of Westwood, Massachusetts, and his family have struggled with his brother’s 14-year opioid addiction. He said his brother, Danny, who has been clean for the past four months, has nearly died and has been in and out of jail.He said the idea for the 4-foot-high sculpture, which includes a depiction of burned heroin on the spoon, came from his mother screaming several years ago that she found another bent spoon used by his brother. Spoons are used to “cook” the drugs into liquid form before putting them into syringes.“The spoon has always been an albatross for my family,” Esposito said. “It’s kind of an emotional symbol, a dark symbol for me.“This is just a movement for accountability,” he said. “Percocet and OxyContin are still all over the streets. Nothing’s changed. People are still dying. … It’s also a calling for the federal government to step in and do something.”The placement of the giant spoon at Purdue Pharma kicked off an exhibit on the opioid crisis that opened Friday at Alvarez’s gallery in Stamford.
