LOS ANGELES: After a boxing career that has spanned nearly a quarter of a century and 70 professional contests, it is little surprise that Manny Pacquiao has his training regime honed to perfection. On July 20, the 40-year-old Filipino icon will climb into the ring for the 71st time when he faces Keith Thurman at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand, aiming to capture the undefeated American’s World Boxing Association super world welterweight crown. To prepare himself for a contest that the younger, hard-hitting Thurman has vowed to ensure will be Pacquiao’s last, the veteran superstar will rely on a formula that has served him so well over the years. Pacquiao wakes at around dawn each day in the multi-million-dollar mansion that has been his Los Angeles base for the past decade. If sparring is scheduled for later in the day, Pacquiao will embark on a light morning workout, jogging to a park two miles from his home where he runs laps, shadow boxes and performs core work.

Johnny Depp's former wife Amber Heard raised several eyebrows when she arrived in Los Angeles without wearing any bra. The Aquaman movie actress wore a thin sheer white tank top, which left nothing for the imagination. Earlier this week, the 33-year-old Amber Heard decided to wear a revealing outfit. The acclaimed actress wore a top with no bra underneath. Her sheer white top revealed almost everything to the onlookers. Apparently, this is not for the first time when Depp's former wife decided to come out in public with no bra on. Back during this year's Cannes, she stepped out for a lunch in a sheer white shirt with no bra underneath it. During that time, she sported a low-cut top, a leather skirt, with gold sandals. What made several heads turn around that time was the fact that Amber didn't wear a bra beneath that thin shirt. You can check out Amber Heard's braless pictures here. Meanwhile, Amber Heard's personal life has made several headlines in recent months. Amber and Johnny got … [Read more...] about Amber Heard goes braless amid legal battles against Johnny Depp

By Chris Barton Los Angeles Times Mon., April 29, 2019 So who had “Game of Thrones will just wrap up its whole Night King/humanity-unifying climate change allegory in 82 minutes” in their office pool? After all the talking that until now made up the final season of HBO’s fantasy blockbuster, the Battle of Winterfell arrived with a vengeance Sunday night. But for all the bad omens, fond farewells and seeming inevitability of mass casualties (imagined by at least one viewer, anyway), the great war ended on the side of humanity with Arya killing the Night King (and everyone else in his army) with her Valyrian steel dagger. Needless to say, Arya doesn’t pay for a meal anywhere in Westeros the rest of her life — at least until she meets whatever’s ahead in sunny King’s Landing.
