Missing two key pillars of their starting lineup, the Golden State Warriors had to turn to two-time MVP Stephen Curry against the Toronto Raptors in Game Three of the NBA Finals in Oakland on Wednesday.

PARIS: Short of booting him in the shins at a change of ends, Roger Federer has used just about everything in his vast armoury to try and beat Rafael Nadal at the French Open - so he will need something different when they meet on the Parisian clay for the first time in eight years on Friday.Five editions of arguably the sport's greatest rivalry have taken place on the Parisian claycourts, the first in 2005 when Nadal burst into the public consciousness by taking the title on his debut and the most recent in 2011.Each time Federer was beaten, unable to contain the marauding Mallorcan whose left-handed topspin game tormented the Swiss great like no other player has ever managed.There were passages of play in some of those matches when Federer appeared to have found the secret.He won the first set 6-1 in the 2006 final, only to fade away in four sets while a year later the opening two sets were also shared before Nadal stormed to victory.On one occasion, however, Federer was humiliated, … [Read more...] about Hope for Federer if he breaks Rafa’s rhythm
Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans were not allowed by Marvel and Disney to promote their magnum opus, Avengers: Endgame together. And the reason is hilariously believable! By now we've all realised that the two hunky Chris' share an impeccable camaraderie that doesn't limit to their onscreen characters, Thor and Captain America. Hence, considering how they would be goofing around instead of working, the makers decided to not pair them up for interviews and promotional events.As per an interview with Chris Hemsworth on Variety, the actor revealed, "With Chris Evans, I have a real brotherly bond. I think they wouldn't pair us up on this press tour, because we just spend the whole time screwing around and none of it is on topic." On the same, even Chris Evans commented and told Variety, "We had too much fun together, and truly like kids in school, we were separated because we weren't getting s--- done." Like we mentioned earlier, the two Chris' share a really good bond so it is not … [Read more...] about Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans not allowed to promote Endgame!
MEXICO CITY: For a groundbreaking ceremony, there was suspiciously little ground broken as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador symbolically inaugurated work on a new Mexico City airport - a pet project analysts warn could go badly wrong.Smiling and waving an orange flag, the anti-establishment leftist stood before a line of heavy construction equipment last Monday, declaring work was officially under way to turn the Santa Lucia military air base into a second airport for the sprawling Mexican capital.But there was no sign of that from the bulldozers, which stood by silently throughout - and could stay that way for some time.The new airport faces heavy turbulence, aviation experts say.The biggest problem is the ring of mountains that surrounds Mexico City, limiting the routes for take-off and landing, and making it a logistical nightmare to operate two separate airports, according to critics."Some people say, 'There are other cities with more than one airport.' That's true, but they … [Read more...] about Mexican president’s new airport flies into turbulence
Nespresso Philippines has one message it wants to shout out loud, Aretha Franklin-style, to local coffee lovers: R-E-C-Y-C-L-E! Yes, recycling was the big push at a Nespresso event hosted by Amazing Race celebrity/World Wildlife Foundation ambassador/coffee lover Marc Nelson at Power Plant Mall. Now, the fact is, Nespresso users go through millions of aluminum capsules — those airtight pods that keep Nespresso coffee fresh and perfectly balanced with every cup — every single day worldwide. So wouldn’t it be great if all of those used capsules were returned to recycling centers? After all, the pods themselves are infinitely recyclable, and the used coffee grounds make great soil fertilizer for local farms. Nelson, along with Novateur Coffee Concepts managing director Patrick Pesengco, which launched Nespresso Philippines two years back, wants people to know there are now many options to recycle your capsules. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable. So why not recycle 100 … [Read more...] about Nespresso wants you to R-E-C-Y-C-L-E
