Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move The 21-year-old was loaned to Ascoli in 2016 and made his move permanent 12 months later, Favilli netting five times in 12 Serie B appearances in 2017-18.He returns to Juve having signed a five-year contract with the Bianconeri that will see Ascoli receive a hefty initial payment, with €1.25m in add-ons should certain conditions be met before June 2021.”This is the team that gave me a great opportunity a few years ago,” said Favilli.”Coming home is always nice.”Last season was a bit unlucky, but I worked hard and now I’m fine and I’m ready for the new season.”
Kyrgyzstan gave themselves a great opportunity of qualifying for the 2019 Asian Cup knockout phase as one of the best third-placed teams after Vitalij Lux’s hat-trick secured a 3-1 win over Philippines on Wednesday.Defeats in their opening two Group C games left Kyrgyzstan in a difficult position, but they rallied against Sven-Goran Eriksson’s men to secure third, finishing with three points and a neutral goal difference, which will likely be enough to see them through.Kyrgyzstan were on top for most of the first period and were good value for their lead when Lux found the top-right corner, doing so again at the start of the second half.

A group of celebrities is making a stand against nuclear weapons – and they need your support.Video: The World Must Stand TogetherPresident Obama will meet with President Putin on the side of the June 17-18 G-8 Summit in Northern Ireland, with nuclear weapons on the agenda. In the lead-up to this critical decision point, an eminent group of artists – including Alec Baldwin, John Cusack, Matt Damon, Robert De Niro, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Whoopi Goldberg, Zoe Kravitz, Martin Sheen, Christoph Waltz and Naomi Watts – issued a stirring call for a world without nuclear weapons in a powerful new video released by Global Zero.The video is part of an international campaign urging President Obama to set the world’s course to zero nuclear weapons by negotiating further cuts in the massive U.S.-Russian Cold War stockpiles and bringing other leading nuclear powers into international nuclear arms negotiations for the first time in history.As part of these efforts, Global Zero delivered to the White House a letter to President Obama from approximately 75 former prime ministers, foreign and defense ministers and military commanders, an official declaration recently adopted by the European Parliament endorsing Global Zero’s plan to eliminate nuclear weapons, and a global grassroots petition – all urging Obama to set the world’s course to zero nuclear weapons. Over the last several weeks, a host of artists, musicians and bands have promoted the campaign on social media, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul McCartney, Tom Morello, Yoko Ono, Serj Tankian, Pearl Jam and R.E.M., among many others.“The message from national security experts and citizens around the world is clear: the only way to eliminate the global nuclear danger is to eliminate all nuclear weapons,” said Michael Douglas. “It’s time to set the world’s course to zero.”“Nuclear weapons are obsolete relics of the Cold War, they do not address today’s security threats, and they cost $1 trillion per decade globally,” said Morgan Freeman. “It’s time we get rid of them.”“To set the world’s course to zero nuclear weapons, President Obama will have to go beyond the bilateral process President Reagan started of U.S.-Soviet/Russian arms reductions and bring the other leading nuclear powers into international arms negotiations for the first time in history,” said Global Zero Co-Founder Matt Brown.Starting with President Reagan, whose aim was “the total elimination one day of nuclear weapons from the face of the Earth” and who began the process of arms reductions, the Global Zero position has become mainstream – and those who oppose it increasingly outside the mainstream. The Global Zero movement is now supported by hundreds of respected national security and military leaders, more than 150 university campus chapters and half a million citizens from around the world who understand that nuclear weapons have no place in the 21st century.Find out more here.
It’s a year of “firsts” for Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard: the pair, who welcomed their first child in March, have just become the first couple to win the male and female divisions in PETA’s annual Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest.The Veronica Mars superstar snagged the title over such tough competition as Jenna Dewan Tatum and Tia Mowry – who, like Bell, are new vegan mums – not to mention Anne Hathaway, Edie Falco and Portia de Rossi, while the Parenthood funnyman triumphed over former US President Bill Clinton, Marco Antonio Regil, Peter Dinklage and Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Cory Booker, among others.“I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with – dogs and cats, for example – from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat. I always loved my Brussels sprouts!” Bell says. Vegetarian for many years, she then went vegan, and Shepard joined her, loving the results. “I have fewer body aches”, he says. “My skin looks better. I’m never starving, and I never need to ride the couch feeling completely full and disgusting.”Previous winners of PETA US’ Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest include Woody Harrelson, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Olivia Wilde, Carrie Underwood, Prince, Natalie Portman, Shania Twain, Leona Lewis, André 3000, Tobey Maguire and Alicia Silverstone.
LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The last time I sat down to write about Syfy’s stellar summer slate, it was with the frame of the female experience firmly front of mind. The math is there: Each series is led by a complexly badass lady or Two (or Five, or Android) whose lived experience as a woman constantly fighting for her own agency and bodily autonomy dictates the shape of the series’ respective action-adventure narratives.This time, though, as all three near their season finales, the frame I can’t shake is goo. Killjoyshas some (green); Dark Matter has some (black). For all that it is the more serious, high-budget cousin of these summer romps, Syfy’s late winter space epic, The Expanse, even has some (blue).“HA! Is it seriously blue goo, black goo, green goo? Is that true?” Michelle Lovretta, Killjoyscreator and showrunner exclaims when I comment on it. “And I think Emily has goo, on Wynonna [Earp]!” Fact check: true. Wynonna’s is demonic, and borne of Hell—at least when it’s not spit from the glands of immortal witch widows, or from body-snatching worm demons, or painted like a permanent bullseye on your forehead by a demonic cult leader—but it’s still goo.This goes with the territory, of course, both Syfy’s and sci-fi’s. In sci-fi (the genre), some alien threat is all but required; on Syfy the network, production costs impose some hard limitations. “Not to pull the curtain back,” Lovretta says, “but the reality is, if you want aliens, and you don’t want to spend twelve hours in a makeup chair with the expense and production time that that takes, then you deal with aliens in a way that you can deal with the us versus them, the horror, all those deep, rich themes that we enjoy poking at while enjoying our romp on Killjoys—since we want fun to be the centerpiece—you do it in a way that you can manage.”READ MORE Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: Facebook Twitter

The Canadian Press VANCOUVER — A business case for a proposed high-speed rail link connecting Vancouver, Seattle and Portland says the travel time would be under an hour between each of the cities. Engineering consulting firm WSP has completed a 400-page business case for the transportation link, which is supported by the governments of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon as well as Microsoft Corp.The report says the system would feature frequent trains running at speeds as high as 400 kilometres per hour and include stops in between the major cities with connections to other transportation.It says the annual ridership is projected to exceed three million, with fare revenues estimated at more than US$250 million, which could result in one of the best performing rail services in North America.The document also says the system would result in a more affordable region, as residents benefit from easier access to housing, with wider availability of higher-paying jobs and opportunities.The rail link is also expected to produce a stronger, more productive region as more businesses and jobs locate in the area due to dramatically improved access to housing, jobs, schools and other destinations.

Related Content April 27, 2018 — For the first time, cancer patients in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region have access to proton therapy, now available at the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Proton Therapy Center.Martha Ramos, 53 of Maryland became MedStar Georgetown’s first patient to receive proton therapy. Ramos is being treated for recurrence of a brain tumor.“It’s encouraging to know that this kind of radiation will result in less damage to the healthy area of my brain,” said Ramos.Proton therapy is more precise and targeted than conventional radiation therapy. It works by using pencil beam scanning, similar to a 3-D printer, to match the tumor’s exact shape and size with superior accuracy that eliminates the exit dose of traditional radiation, and spares healthy tissue.MedStar Georgetown is the first and only proton center in the world to offer the Mevion S250i with Hyperscan technology, producing beams that are sharper than previous proton systems, according to Mevion. Proton therapy with Hyperscan is also faster than other proton systems, benefiting patients whose treatment includes holding their breath.“I am extremely excited to be able to offer this latest advancement, proton therapy, to my patients,” said Brian Collins, M.D., a radiation oncologist and clinical director of the new proton therapy center. “It’s clear that this treatment will help to improve the clinical outcomes for our cancer patients and decrease their side effects when radiation is needed.”“In certain cases, proton therapy can be a game changer,” said Keith Unger, M.D., radiation oncologist at MedStar Georgetown. “It allows us to treat cancers where traditional radiation might not even be possible.”“Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation that can destroy cancer cells,” said Peter Ahn, M.D., a radiation oncologist at MedStar Georgetown. “A machine called a cyclotron speeds up protons to two thirds the speed of light and they become highly charged. These high-energy protons are then delivered to the tumor as an invisible beam that eradicates the cancer. Because we can more tightly control the protons than we are able with traditional radiation, proton therapy can be given without damaging critical tissues and structures near the tumor because the beam conforms precisely to the tumor’s size and shape, sparing healthy tissue.”Hyperscan is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved technology that has advantages over existing proton therapy systems. In addition to producing a micro beam that is sharper than many current proton systems and reducing damage to nearby healthy tissue, Hyperscan is also faster than other pencil beam scanning systems, which can reduce the margin of error in treating tumors that are affected by breathing or organ motion. This improves both treatment accuracy and patient comfort as patients need to spend less time lying still.Proton therapy is beneficial for pediatric cancer patients because it lowers their exposure to radiation avoiding unnecessary exposure to healthy tissue and resulting in less growth impairment as they grow up. Children are less likely to develop a secondary cancer later in life when treated with proton therapy as it treats tumors while keeping health surrounding tissues unharmed.Proton therapy is also effective in treating recurrent tumors.“There are also certain types of cancer where you have to deliver a very high dose of radiation right next to a critical structure like the spinal cord or brainstem,” said Sonali Rudra, M.D., radiation oncologist at MedStar Georgetown. “With proton therapy we can deliver a high dose to the area we are trying to target and minimize the radiation beyond the tumor. So for some patients, proton therapy might be their only radiation treatment option.”“Proton therapy can also be a good option for patients with left-sided breast cancer, which is close to the heart,” said Rudra. “When indicated for breast cancer, using proton therapy instead of traditionalradiation means more control over the radiation itself and less potential damage to the heart and lungs.”Click here to watch a YouTube video explaining the differences between proton therapy and conventional radiation.

China has overtaken Germany and the United States as the world’s leading travel spenders, recording US$102 billion in international travel receipts last year – an increase of more than 40 percent on 2011. In Australia, the number of Chinese visitors tripled in the last ten years, with China now accounting for 10 percent of Australia’s international tourism market. Hoteliers backed up these figures, claiming 70 percent of Chinese guests worldwide now travel independently – while in Australia the figure was even higher at 82 percent. The Asia-Pacific region recorded the largest increase in Chinese visitors, at 61 percent last year. “Governments will have to take this into account when organising their visa application infrastructure and processes,” Hotels.com Asia Pacific managing director Johan Svanstrom said. “Australia is facing stiff competition from other destination for visitors from China with high levels of discretionary spending which is why our current visa restrictions are one of the biggest concerns for Chinese travel companies,” Mr Munro said. Accommodation Association of Australia chief executive Richard Munro believes the Coalition’s proposed changes to visa access will have dramatic economic benefits for Australia’s tourism industry. “In particular, free independent travellers from China are required to complete visa documents up to 38 pages long – even for a short-stay holiday. 62 percent of Chinese travellers said they prefer to travel independently and not as part of a group. Tourism Australia recently launched its Chinese consumer website in order to cater specifically to the growing influx of Chinese visitors. Source = ETB News: P.T. “Currently, Australia welcomes more than 685,000 Chinese visitors a year (2012/13) and visa changes would enhance the chances of pushing this figure to 1 million by 2020,” Mr Munro said. “Increasingly, we are seeing travellers from China looking to create their own tailor made itineraries… which is why we developed the new Australia.cn website,” Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy said. Australia must adjust its visa process, considering Chinese travellers are now the world’s leading spenders, preferring to travel independently, according to new research. The second annual Hotels.com Chinese International Travel Monitor (CITM) 2013 has revealed a growing trend in independent, high spending Chinese leisure travellers. “The Coalition’s proposed scheme would see visas lodged electronically, drastically cutting the time and effort currently required for Chinese tourists who wish to visit Australia, including the extension of multiple-entry visas.” Australia needs to change visa processes in order to welcome more Chinese visitors, according to the Accommodation Association of Australia.
“It’s something that he and the doctors are working through,” Arians said.Jared Veldheer questionableAfter not practicing for two days, left tackle Jared Veldheer was a limited participant on Friday. He’s been bothered by an elbow injury.“He practiced good today,” Arians said. “The strength is back in his arm, so he looks like he’ll be ready to go.”Four other players are considered questionable: Peterson, defensive lineman Josh Mauro (ankle), wide receiver J.J. Nelson (knee) and defensive lineman Corey Peters (ankle). Opposing quarterbacks have thrown in his direction just 43 times in 12 games, completing 18 pass attempts for 270 yards and only two touchdowns. They have a 68.9 passer rating against Peterson.“I won’t say my peak, I’d probably say my prime. I believe I’m just getting started,” he said.“Coming off that 2014 season (and being diagnosed with diabetes), it just really helped put things in perspective and I really believe that’s when I really started to turn the corner as a football player. I became a much smarter defensive back. Got myself mentally prepared better for games. So, definitely, feel like I’m in my prime right now, for sure.”And Peterson insists he’s ready to go this week against Tennessee even though the Cardinals have officially listed him questionable with a hamstring injury.“I’ll be ready to go Sunday for sure,” he said.Earning playing timeThe Cardinals’ defense is getting healthier.Dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon, who missed last week’s game with an ankle issue, is expected to play on Sunday. His return likely means less playing time for someone else, though head coach Bruce Arians made it clear earlier in the week it won’t be Josh Bynes.

(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Josh will be on the field,” Arians said. “He’s played well enough to make sure he’s getting snaps.”It was Bynes who came off the bench to replace Bucannon early in the game against Jacksonville, and finished with a team-best eight tackles. Bynes also had eight tackles last week.“I’m just taking it week to week and doing what I’m asked to do because every week is a different week. You never know what is going to happen this week or next week and being undrafted, it’s hard in this league,” he said.“I really, really appreciate that (Arians’ comments) but we’ll see what happens on Sunday.”More Kerwynn WilliamsWith running back Adrian Peterson having already been ruled out for this week, Kerwynn Williams is expected to make his second straight start.Against the Rams, Williams nearly finished with 100 rushing yards despite playing hurt.“Tough guy,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “To play running back and have, what a couple of broken ribs or whatever it may be—not necessarily broken but bruised ribs—he did a great job.”As far as an update on Peterson, he missed a full week of practice for a second consecutive week because of a neck issue. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Peterson called the recognition both a privilege and an honor.“Just want to continue being a positive role model throughout the Arizona community,” he said, standing next to team president Michael Bidwill who was on hand for Friday’s announcement.Peterson hosts a number of events each year—including “Shop with a Jock”, “Celebrity Golf Challenge”, “Show and Tell” and “Celebs and Steaks”—to benefit his “Foundation for Success” which was created in 2013 to help provide low-income and inner city youth with opportunities and resources.Peterson is one of 32 nominees for the league’s national Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, which will be announced the night before the Super Bowl. Larry Fitzgerald and the Giants’ Eli Manning were co-winners last year.Peterson’s impact off the field is matched only by his impact on the field.This season, Peterson is once again playing at a Pro Bowl-level.“He’s a guy that goes out and covers the best guy on the perimeter each and ever week, and has done it at an extremely high level for a long period of time,” defensive coordinator James Bettcher said.According to Pro Football Focus, Peterson is the only cornerback with 400+ snaps played that has been targeted fewer than 50 times in 2017. TEMPE, Ariz. – On the field, cornerback Patrick Peterson is among the best at his position. Off the field, he ranks right there near the top as well.Peterson and his wife, Antonique, are heavily involved in the community plus have a presence internationally. Last May, they visited Haiti as guests of Mission of Hope.For his efforts, Peterson was named the Arizona Cardinals/Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. It’s the second time in three seasons he’s been so honored with the award that recognizes a player for outstanding community service activities off the field and as well as excellence on the field. 3 Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
